It’s LIVE! ~ Nasty (Dirty Nasty Freaks #2) by Callie Hart

Nasty is now LIVE!!




“When you’re with me, you’re not vulnerable. When you’re with me, you are safe. When you’re with me, you will never be alone. And as for your heart, Sera Lafferty…I’ll make it beat so fast you’ll never feel it ache.”

Sera Lafferty isn’t insane.
She’s always made the smart decisions.
She has a career. A loving sister. The carefully mapped out, peaceful life in Seattle that she’s craved since childhood. So why, then, does she suddenly find herself on a scavenger hunt, traveling across the country with a stranger? And not just any stranger. A maddeningly sexy hitman, who’s been paid to end her life.

His past is shrouded in secrets, and his eyes are filled with ghosts. Sera knows she should head back to Seattle, to sever all ties with her handsome man in black. But leaving him might not just hurt Sera in the end. It might end up getting her killed.

Fix Marcosa damn well knows better.
He’s been focused on his goals ever since the fateful day he swore to avenge his friend’s brutal attack. Booze. Drugs. Violence. Sex. Nothing has distracted him from his mission. But Sera is more potent than alcohol, more addicting than any opiate. She makes the fury in his blood sing. And her body? Her body is utter perfection, and he just can’t keep his hands off it. Or his mouth for that matter.

Fix is determined.

Screw the money. Screw the consequences, and screw anybody stupid enough to stand in his way.

He isn’t going to end Sera Lafferty’s life.

He’s damn well going to save it.

CC’s ARC Review ~ Nasty (Dirty Nasty Freaks, #2) by Callie Hart


Title: Nasty (Dirty Nasty Freaks, #2) 
Author: Callie Hart
Genre:  Dark Romantic Suspense
Type: Book two in a series
POV: First Person – dual
Expected Publication: May 25, 2018


4.5 Stars!



Without interruption in the timeline, Felix Marcosa and Sera Lafferty continue their journey but Sera has many questions for him now that she knows the truth. Though Fix has delicate information, it isn’t enough as they discover dead ends and new layers that complicate their circumstances.

“This is what happens when you go looking for death instead of running in the opposite direction. You find it. Or, inevitably, it finds you.”

Prepared to make sacrifices for Sera, Fix is determined to take the search all the way to the end. During this time, more is revealed about his past and how it’s connected to his business partner. Simultaneously, the stark reality of Sera’s childhood begins to surface and underscores her need to defend herself.

“I will never break you, Sera Lafferty. What would be the point? That fiery defiance that burns inside you? I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I adore it. I worship it.”

Told in dual POV, Fix and Sera develop added dimension as they relate to each other and how they deal with threats. While Fix exudes a cocksure attitude, filthy mouth and smart-ass comments, he will also go to great lengths to protect what is his. Sera is a force of her own, and while she’s never met someone like Fix before, she doesn’t hold back no matter the consequences. Together, their chemistry is combustible and I love the push/pull dynamic they share. 

“I’m beginning to think you might be a little obsessed with my ass,” I fired back. “Damn right I am. I’ve seen plenty of assholes, and yours is by far the loveliest.”

This series harkens back to signature Callie Hart with flawed but relatable characters and a narrative that continues to build complex layers. I absolutely adore Fix and his everything that flows from his sinfully erotic tongue. As for Sera, she is quietly complicated but that’s what makes her stronger and admirable.

Nasty is full of edgy, heart pumping action, dark humor and sex appeal. I highly recommend and look forward to see how the story continues, especially with that ending.

Liz’s Review~Filthy Gods~by R. Scarlett


“They were the Kennedys of our world.”


Filthy Gods is the first book in the American Gods Series. The American Gods live in a world where rich collegiates rule with their kingdom. With an intoxicating blend of passion, intrigue, and intensity, this novella packs quite a punch.


“He was already inside me. Consuming me. Burning me. He had been for years and now I was laid out in front of him to feast on.”

When Juliette Monroe reports for her summer job as a maid at the Hawthorne estate, she is shocked to discover her nemesis, Nathaniel Radcliffe, is one of the guests. In fact, he is not just “any guest” but his family owns the estate. Juliette has done everything in her power to lead her friends at Yale to believe that she is spending her summer in France. Instead of living the life of luxury like her cohorts she is, in fact, desperate to keep her tuition bill paid and must work to earn her own way. Nathaniel, who had always been attracted to Juliette, uses her secret to his benefit. In order to keep her secret safe, she must agree to a secret summer affair with Nathaniel.

“Would you fight me the whole way if we fucked? Even when I’m deep inside of your pussy, owning, possessing you?”

Told in dual POV, Filthy Gods is a fast-paced novella with forbidden romance, passion, and a staggering amount of alpha male energy! The intensity of the read is extreme as Nathaniel and Juliette’s chemistry is off the charts. With the added conflict of having to hide from the other guests and their friends and family, the threat of getting caught is always looming. The secondary characters enhance the story greatly as it is clear the GODS are loyal to each other and the ones they love.


Overall, I highly recommend Filthy Gods to anyone who enjoys a quick and steamy forbidden romance. If this introductory novella is only a taste of what is to come, call me famished and ready for more!

NOW LIVE~MAREK~by Sawyer Bennett

Marek: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 22, 2018


Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold—and it’s not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It’s the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he’s going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what’s his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.

Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That’s why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that’s why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen’s not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren’t always what they seem. . . .

CC’s ARC Review ~ Rough Edge by CD Reiss

Title: Rough Edge
Author: CD Reiss
Genre:  Erotica
Type: Book one of four
POV: First Person – dual
Published: May 22, 2018


4.5 Stars! 

After serving fourteen years in the army, Greyson Frazier is a psychiatrist acclimating to private practice and a new marriage. With a competitive streak, Greyson pushes limits within the confines of a structured environment but she slowly realizes the boundaries have changed.

“There’s so much we’re going to do together.” He kissed my neck. “We’re going to build an entire life out of a war.”

Caden St. John is a heart surgeon who volunteered his time to mend injured soldiers. Having a complicated past, Caden has always been able to separate his emotions but circumstances emerge that cause Caden to fight what he feels. 

“Something was there with us, in the room, and it wanted me.”

Together, Greyson and Caden are a complimentary couple with each offering a balance to their dynamic. As Greyson begins to observe changes in Caden, she attempts to help him using scientific methods but she also is willing to try what he believes will chase away his fears. As this pain and pleasure cycle occurs, their relationship escalates leading to self-discovery and to questions about limits. 

“I rotated my fingers on her nub, watching her try to maintain control over her questions. “While we’re doing it and you were hurting me? If I said stop, could you?”

Told in dual POV, Caden oozes dominance, sex appeal and offers a steady demeanor. With much mystery behind Caden’s conflict, the intensity of his inner struggle is effectively conveyed. In responding to Caden’s demands and needs, Greyson unexpectedly learns more about her own sexuality but her focus during this process is on healing Caden. 

In starting this book, I was under the impression this author was returning to her roots, and upon finishing, it definitely seems like that holds true. In this narrative, these two characters are complex, dynamic and willing to sacrifice and fight for each other. Additionally, the pathos present in Caden is constantly at the edge of his behavior driving him to force out his darkest demons. I am hoping it gets even darker as more is revealed and in how Caden and Greyson are able to reconcile what they discover.

Rough Edge is an intensely erotic story about characters making sacrifices and pushing limits. With a pulse on her characters and a plot that breathes on its own, CD Reiss will take you on the edge.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Release Blitz! ~ The Surviving Trace by Calia Read

Happy Release Day to Calia Read and her new time travel/romance—THE SURVIVING TRACE! This is one you don’t want to miss!!

Will is my fiancé. The shy man I met years ago in college. The person I’m supposed to spend the rest of my life with.

This is the life I’ve always wanted until finding a picture of four men changes everything…

Etienne says he’s my husband and the year is 1912. He can’t stand the sight of me, but I don’t know why.

Oh, and he’s one of the men from the picture.

I’ve done the impossible and have become trapped in time and I know Etienne is my key to going home.

The more time I spend with Etienne, the further I fall for him, until I’m questioning which time I belong in and if the life I left behind is the one I truly desire.

All I know for certain is I need to survive time.

I need to survive love.

And I need to make it out on the other side alive.

Right then, someone places a hand on my arm. I turn and see Nat. Her eyes are wide with panic. “Étienne is here.” I stare at her blankly, and she frowns. “Did you hear me? I said Étienne’s here. He’s livid.”

Judging by Nat’s frantic expression and tone of voice, I know this Étienne is someone important. But I don’t know who the hell he is or why I should be the slightest bit nervous.

I’m getting ready to say that when she plants her hands on my shoulders. It’s impossible to tell if the gesture is more for her benefit or mine. “You’re in no shape to see him. I’ll distract him. That should afford you some time to hurry to your room.”

Before I can reply or ask who in the hell this Étienne is, the whispers start. Word spreads like wildfire until conversations practically cease.

“Go,” Nat pleads.

No sooner has the word escaped her mouth before the doors at the far end of the room slam open. People stop what they’re doing. Even the musicians appear unsure and stare at each other in confusion.

Nat and Livingston move in front of me like a pair of bodyguards. I stand on my tiptoes and try to peer between their shoulders, but all I can make out is a stark white shirt. I’m confident it’s the Étienne man Nat was talking about.

In the hushed silence, I can distinctly hear his powerful steps. People inch toward the walls or the double doors.

“What are you still doin’ here? Go!” Nat whispers to me.

Why would I go? It’s just getting interesting. A thrill courses down my spine and spreads throughout my body. Minutes ago, I wanted to leave, but the dramatic reaction elicited from everyone and the giant question mark stamped over this mysterious Étienne makes me stay put.

Plus, this is a dream. Right now, I’m merely a cat with nine lives. If danger comes my way, I’ll survive. By the ninth, I’ll wake up.

For now, I’m safe.

The closer he gets, the louder his footsteps become. My heart pounds in sync with his footsteps. When he stops walking, Nat and Livingston’s shoulders are practically fused together. All I can see is the man crossing his tan arms.

There’s a beat of silence before Nat speaks. “Étienne. This is a pleasant surprise. I didn’t know you’d be here.”

“I live here. This is my home.” His voice is laced with the same slow, Southern drawl as everyone else I’ve heard speak tonight. But I think it’s the deep timbre that makes my pulse jump. Yes, that has to be it. “Who’s behind you?”

“No one,” Livingston and Nat say in unison.

“Are you sure? Because I swear I see the top of Serene’s head behind your shoulder.”

He knows my name. How does he know my name? Once again, I remind myself that anything goes in dreams. But something about this isn’t sitting well in my gut.

Livingston and Nat turn at the same time. They wear expressions of pure shock, as if they had no idea I’d been standing behind them.

“Oh, it’s Serene.” Livingston shares a well-practiced look of confusion with Nathalie. “I didn’t know she was there. Did you, Nat?”

“I did not.”

Damn, these two are good. If this were real life, we’d be fast friends. From how they play off of each other’s body language and words, I know they’re siblings; my brothers and I covered for each other the same way.

I can’t see the man’s expression, but I’m willing to bet he’s not buying anything they’re saying.

“Step aside. I need to talk to her.”

No one makes a sound. My legs shake.

When Livingston and Nat don’t budge, he says, “Move. Now.”

Nat’s shoulders slightly sag in defeat. I’m half-tempted to tell her not to give in to his demands, but my tongue becomes three sizes too big for my mouth.

As she steps to the right, she gives me a quick once-over and whispers, “I tried to warn you.”

They move away, and it feels as if I’ve been thrown to the wolves. Now I’m facing the leader of the pack. The first thing that comes to my mind once I see him is, Shit. I should’ve listened to Nathalie.

Because this isn’t the good ol’ boy every mother wants their daughter to end up with. No. This is the man every mom has warned their daughters about. You run, not walk when you encounter someone like him.

I stand there as though I’m nailed to the floor and watch as the man gazes around the room. He sighs as if everyone is wasting his precious time.

Then he turns his eyes to me, and when he does, the realization hits me like a bolt of lightning.

It’s my mystery man.

The man from my dream.

The man from the picture.

Standing inches away from me.
