All He Wants for Christmas by Kati Wilde

All He Wants For ChristmasAll He Wants For Christmas by Kati Wilde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bold, big, Sexy Read

Cole, a detective and recent hero -having taken two bullets in the line of duty- returns to work to face an irritating request from one of the city’s richest families that neither he nor the Chief of Police can refuse . To keep an eye on Mia Bennet, Mr rich as F*ck’s daughter.

Mia is sick of being under the manipulative thumb of her parents and has struck out to live independent of the, whilst pursuing her career.

But things get complicated as Cole and Mia risk their mutual attraction whilst they battle their own insecurities: Cole and Mia both feeling they’ll never be good enough for the other.

As the festive seasons approach Cole and Mia work through their differences to get to their HEA.

THIS was the last in the four Xmas reads released by each of the four authors and was nearly my fave out of the four (sorry, Ruby Dixon‘s IPB story just edged to win because, well it’s IPB…)

But this story had everything you want from a smexy Xmas read: the angst, the trembling ‘will they? won’t they?’ and then the relief of ‘yes they’re finally together and they’ll not be torn apart, yippee!’

Was especially happy to see how Mia grew a backbone to fight for what and whom she loves.

Xmas comes early with Gadziala (oh, you dirty minded people you!)

UnwrappedUnwrapped by Jessica Gadziala

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

SO I am in the process of either re-reading or catching up with Ms Gadziala’s books. For some reason this little gem had escaped my hot lil’ hands and I picked it up to enjoy a quick hour of fun. And was it ever. The same punchy writing style that has made Jessica one of my favourite writers, plus the holidays, plus a hunky H PLUS Xmas…! What could possibly go wrong.

Well. Nothing.

Nothing went wrong. I laughed, I cried, I bit my bottom lip and flicked through this little novella at feverish pace.

The H, Mountain man, orphan and premium smoked meat, multi-millionaire Jake, t-bones holiday maker and h, Lyra, orphan and wistful New Yorker seeking a real holidays experience as she drives through a snowstorm to her hired cabin.

Her car totalled and with possible concussion, Jake takes charge,, taking her and her Xmas prep luggage back to his amazing buiscuit tin perfect cabin where they both discover the way to make Xmas much more memorable that it had ever been in the past.

This is a sweet and sexy easy read with just enough book to make you feel you’ve had the equivalent of a handful of fun-sized snickers…just enough sweet and smexy so that you’ve had a hit of GadziFixx but not so much that you feel you’ve totally wrecked your diet…

Would love to see this one developed into a series. Felix the writer sounds like he’d be snarky and intelligent fun
Pretty please??

Guardian by Remy Blake – hot, hot, hot

GuardianGuardian by Remy Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh.My.Dayz. Remy Blake. Smexy read – another home run

Another pseudo taboo read from this duo that focussed on the barely legal h/ older man H with a twist of DD/lg and humour.

So, as many know RB is a collaboration between two writers, Jacob Chance and an anonymous female author, their strap line being two dirty minds are better than one. And in this case I would heavily agree.
The two writing styles are still rubbing along, yet to mess together seamlessly in the way authors like Alexa Riley or the Lauren Landish/ Willow Winters duo but they’re getting there.

Brock is a longstanding friend of a recently deceased billionaire who has bequeathed him the guardianship of what should have bee a pig tailed, easily controlled earliteen. Instead, Ivy shows up. She’s rather foul mouthed and overly sexual and barely legal. She’s forbidden, young, fully ‘formed’ woman with curves for days and an ass that doesn’t quit. What ensues is a battle of wills as Brock lays down the law, draws the line in the sand and then promptly staggers over it to plunder Ivy’s sweet young, tight body.

Ivy learns to stick with and pursue her life goals, and becomes the mature woman, deciding that Brock and life with her love is the best goal of all.

The story is just about believable but, come on people, this is not why you buy a RB book. 

Is it? IS IT??
Yeah, thought not. 

It is the hot steamy scenes, that speak to the authenticity of a male author fleshing out the mind of a bachelor, unapologetically tasting the neighbourhood slapper on offer in an effort to get lil Miss Temptation out of his head before he snaps and does something he won’t be able to walk away from.

Oftentimes, it felt like the bulk of the writing finesse and pace in the story fell under Brocks’s PoV, and a smattering of typo/ grammar mistakes peppering the h storyline. However, that is being rather pedantic for the most part.

This is indie writing at its most earthy. And what’s not to like?

If you are looking for an unapologetic smexy ‘lil read with mass endorphin-inducing smut scenes full of passion, then this one will definitely work.

But beware.
Unless you are still hitting it nightly, for safety reasons this is not a book to read in bed, propped up next to your partner…as it may also cause you to glance up mid-read to glare askance at the slack jawed, drooling face of your sleeping bed partner, whilst you try to dredge up a memory of when last you two got as hot and heavy.

Remy Blake cannot be held liable if you growl, then finally bash their sleeping body over the head with your Kindle, muttering darkly “…shoulda listened to my ma, dammit…”

You are warned.
Four hot and spicy well deserved stars for this novella!

Barbarian’s Lady by Ruby Dixon

Barbarian's Lady (Ice Planet Barbarians, #13)Barbarian’s Lady by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The new batch of human females, now bought and freed from slavery continue to be matched up with the Sa-Khui males on Not-Hoth, the ice and snowbound world. 

This is a light but juicy read from Ruby Dixon.

Best thing of all in her writing, the recognition that there is more than one ethnicity or type of beauty in the world, without making it a big deal.  

This h is a big, bold (think Gwendoline Christie/ Brienne of Tarth) but with a slighty insecure undertone. Her H is the fun loving, comedian with no stomach for the sight of his own blood, hunter.  A great combo.

Great writing as usual, clear to point, kept the characters believeable, yes, even if the H is blue-skinned with horns, a tail and fangs!

I seriously can’t get enough of this series!
Solid 4 stars

DELUDE… reviewed – a Jacob Chance novel

DELUDEDELUDE by Jacob Chance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Zachary, the secrets are out…
Voluntarily give this review from ARC received yesterday.

But am not biased, I’m gonna buy it As well – it’s that good.

Seriously.Good.

This is the latest in the series from Jacob Chance and whilst the plot is a slightly darker segue from his other stories it felt like it remained true to the core of the series.

Zach has held a corrosive grudge since then, wanting to punish Kyle for robbing him of the right to commit patricide (Kyle is now an ex-cop and co-owner of a detective agency with best bud Derek) .

Zach’s stalking of Kyle and his loved ones (specifically Kyle’s woman, Janey) initially got him stabbed as Kyle defended against Zach-the-Knife (well it’s not polite to stalk Janey and attack them both one night in her apartment…)

But Zach is a true Phoenix. He slips away in the chaos, fakes his ‘death’ and undeterred, vows to continue his hate cmpaign.

So, Zach’s plans for revenge eventually land him in Boston MA, where he is all geared up to unleash holy hell…

…right up until he spots Lana, the quiet, curvy red-headed tech support at the detective agency. He switches his target and graduates from hopeless stalker to intense possessive with a mission to become the best he can be for Lana.

The book cover says it all. Dark, intense, bit Dom. All alpha. But there’s a hint of the gentle soul he has buried to protect from the horror that was his childhood.

And with that new focus all.bets.are.off.

Lana is a tech and maths sauvant and has sped through the educational system as a result. Her past involves a fiancĂ© and being jilted. But even that was done in a gasp-worthy, OMG way…So yeah.

(Even I am not putting THAT spoiler in my spoiler!!!)

For me, this is truly the best type of smexy love story:

Zach’s climb from twisted, tortured, haunted antihero to the HEA? Yep
Lana’s gentle journey with Zach leading her from insecure geek into willing submissive? Yep
Zach’s dark Dom tendencies come out to play… and get to stay? Hell yes!

The plot goes at a cracking speed.

This story is put through its paces and may feel light on content in some areas, but that is probably more due to the deadlines and limitations of indie publishing than a lack of willingness of Jacob ‘McTwisty’ Chance.

This story may genuinely have a number of very painful triggers for some readers. But never fear.
The dark scenes that there are in this book are handled with deft sensitivity that added backstory without being either stodgy or dragging out the jagged, unnecessary pain.

This was a quick read, but maybe that’s because I totally inhaled the ARC version received from the author in one ecstatic sitting.

I’m leaning back well stuffed, satisfied and replete.

Zach started out in an impossible, no-win place. This is his story, with Lana a welcome passenger on this roller-coaster ride.

4 solid stars, McTwisty. Really great story, well told!

“I got in the car, put on my sunglasses, and put the key in the ignition. The engine roared. I peeled off and did a 360. 

The tires sliced the sand. I sped up the dirt road and turned onto the highway. 

The heat rose and created a blur in the distance. I punched the gas. It was a thirty minute drive to Paradise. 

Axel did a number on my credit and my heart. It took five years just to make a dent in the amount. I made bad choices before I met Jordan. I had to end our relationship because I knew where it would lead. 


I was attracted to guys that were bad for me but good in bed. It was the story of my life… ”
