A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. 
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. 
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.

REVIEW BLITZ/ LIVE ALERT ~ DRUNK DIAL By Penelope Ward

BUY NOW

Amazon | Audio | iBooks | Nook | Kobo | Amazon Paperback

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of thirteen novels. With over a million books sold, her titles have placed on the New York Times Bestseller list sixteen times. She is the proud mother of a beautiful 12-year-old girl with autism (the inspiration for the character Callie in Gemini) and a 10-year-old boy. Penelope, her husband, and kids reside in Rhode Island.

T3 - Drunk dial.jpg teaser

Rana Saloomi; grew up believing she wasn’t pretty and often looking like a tomboy.  Living with a beautiful mother that didn’t care about her really affected the way she looked at herself.  After her mother run away with another man; she rebel against her father and got in a lot of trouble.  Not only did she have gotten in trouble but she made a lot of mistakes that scar her for life. 
Landon Roderick used to have it all and one truth changed his life forever.  He moved from Michigan to California searching for answers he never really got.  Instead he made bad choices; he grew up to be smoking hot but with his tatted body and piercing he was a total bad boy.  Landon was putting his life together and making his business grows until he got a call that brought his past back and new choices he had to make.

Rana had the biggest crush on Landon since little.  They lived together until her parents disappeared; leaving everything behind and so she left Landon.  However; things were not as it seemed she always believed Landon had forgotten about her, so she resented him for it.  One drunken night she looked him up and dials him.

“I’d lived for so many years feeling alone and scared. For the first time in my life, I felt truly safe.”

T2 - Drunk Dial.jpg teaser

“It’s funny how the things that we once looked at as tragic are exactly what needed to happen, in retrospect.”

 

Landon and Rana reconnect after that silly phone call.  Rana had made so many mistakes that she invested her time working as a dancer at a restaurant and never let any man in to do more heart breaking damage.  Landon was a player he always wanted a connection but he hadn’t found the right person.  The long conversations made these two connect and each day that passed they become more and more attractive to one another. 

I really liked this story a lot.  Landon was so sweet and understanding; their first date over the phone was absolutely amazing I seriously loved it.  Rana was a hilarious character because without even thinking she would make Landon laugh and I felt that they were perfect for each other.  The side characters were likable specially Lilith; she was a smart and funny little girl who Rana cared for a lot and I absolutely adored their times together.  Rana’s father was unique and special, he was supportive and a loving father to her.

Overall I really enjoyed this story.  I was hooked from page one, I grin and laugh so much and even had teary eyes on one special scene. Readers who enjoy second chance romance will find this book appealing.

Liz’s Review~Thousands~by Pepper Winters

4-5stars

“Never again. She’s mine.”

description

Thousands is the riveting fourth book in the Dollar Series. Pimlico and Elder Prest’s epic love saga continues as their adversaries rise all around them. This series must be read in order. As each moment of their journey unfolds, one thing remains abundantly clear Pim, and Elder can only be whole when they are together.

description

“I was completely, utterly, undeniably hers until time stopped ticking or the world stopped.”

Thousands picks up directly after Hundreds. Pim, hoping that she is doing the right thing, has run from Elder. Fearing that he will continue to reject her love, she ventures out into the streets frightened and alone. Pim’s actions cause Elder to recognize the truth that he has known all along, Pim is his, and he cannot live without her. As Elder and Pim reunite, the question both Pim and Elder face is how? How can they possibly overcome the demons of their past and find a way to exist together. The stakes are high for them both because living apart is simply not an option.

description

“I’m already home. I’m with you.”

Told in dual POV, Thousands offers complex characters, action, and an intricate plot that continues to intensify as each installment of the series is brought to life. In this read, we gain a better understanding of Elder’s past and his constant internal struggle to atone for his sins. When Pim entered his life he had hoped to save her and yet, through the journey, Elder has discovered that it is Pim who is saving him. The intimate connection between these two is full of raw passion and tenderness. As Pim has discovered her voice, she has found healing and discovered her love for Elder is never going to go away. She is driven to draw him close and protect him. Pim and Elder live in a constant pendulum of push and pull and yet, they only find peace in each other’s arms. Some unexpected characters from other Winters’ creations make an appearance in Pim, and Elder’s life and the actions of those around them trigger an unbelievable sequence of events that broke my heart. I am desperate for the final book to hit my Kindle. Pim and Elder are both unforgettable characters and together they have created a world that I want to live in forever!

description

Overall, I highly recommend this series to any and all contemporary romance fans. With action, passion, romance, and intrigue, Thousands kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read. Now that Pim and Elder have finally acknowledged their need to be together, I have high hopes that they will find their HEA!

Abigail Summers is on the run from hurtful emotions and past trauma but being caught is exactly what she craves. Not disillusioned about the danger of her longtime fantasy, Abigail creates an online profile hoping to find the person who can sate her urges and make her feel again. 

“I’m seeking my monster in the darkness. I’ll run but you’ll run faster. We’ll play cat and mouse until you catch me.”


Phoenix is recovering from a loss and dealing with the mess it left behind. While he is a loving father, socially he’s been living in solitude and realizes it’s time to move forward. Upon viewing online profiles, one person particularly appeals to his predatory needs. 

“Scared pussy always hurts so fucking bad. Scared pussy always fights. And scared pussy always tastes the best.”


As Abigail and Phoenix begin to correspond by messaging, they both experience a wave of excitement as both need to satisfy their dark desires. Despite his warnings, both in words and imagery, Abigail believes she’s finally found her monster and Phoenix is ready to give chase to the bait. 

“I head to her left and she runs to the right. Runs further into the darkness. The bait is snared. Mine.”


description

What ensues is an adrenaline rush as unknown elements of the monster’s identity and when the chase will begin creates blood pumping excitement. Once the game commences, fear is present but also sexual excitement that can only be quenched from a fruitful hunt. 

“With my beast of a dick stretching her pussy to gaping and metal bars grating her deep, she comes for me as she cries out. It’s wild. It’s hard.”


Told in dual POV, the vulnerabilities and struggles experienced by Abigail and Phoenix feel weighty. With each having their own regrets, they also share the common thread of wanting to start again and shed their enormous emotional burden. As the chase continues, it starts to fuel their need for something more. When secrets and deep scars are revealed, Abigail and Phoenix learn to trust each other with feelings that have been deeply buried. 

Abigail is easily likable and her experience certainly draws empathy. Her long-time fantasy adds the dimensional element of Abigail being slightly unsteady and shows how desperate she really is to feel any sensation other than being numb. Running with the wind in her hair and fear deep in her lungs, she is adamant about getting caught by her monster. 

Phoenix brings the element of logic to the story, although his desire overrules. Knowing what he brings to the experience, physically and mentally, distinctly gives him the advantage as a predator. While Phoenix has an intense dark side, it is balanced by the love he shares for his family proving he will go to lengths for them. 

Bait is a story about loss and how two people can find solace together in the darkness. While how these characters meet is certainly unconventional, it proves to be right for them and I like how they found their unique way. As always, Jade West crafts a story about every day characters that is compelling and erotic. When reading this in the dark, be sure to look over your shoulder every now and then for the monster that may be lurking.

Blurb:

“Love had been stolen from me for reasons entirely my fault. But then a miracle
happened, and Pim gave me something I thought was lost forever. She gave me a love
I’d earned. Love that ruined me. Love that made me hopelessly hers…”

Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal.
Now, I’m talking and trusting, and it’s all thanks to Elder.

He gave me my life back, and I gave him my heart, but love stories like ours are never

simple.

I did something to protect him.
He did something to survive me.
We screwed up.

And now, it’s no longer just about us.
It’s about safety, sanctuary, and sin.

CC’s ARC Review ~ Thousands (Dollar, #4) by Pepper Winters

4.5 Stars!

description

 

Thousands opens without interruption in the continuing timeline of Elder Prest and Pimlico. After losing control, Elder believes it’s safest for Pim to remain at a distance but when Pim makes the decision to do so, the situation forces Elder to acknowledge what he’s known. At this point, the plot line shifts to a more introspective examination into what drives Elder’s behavior and need for a certain structure. While revenge and protecting his family has been a priority for Elder, there is much more behind his reasons of feeling guilt and being indebted. 

“She trusted me to keep her safe. This was me honouring that trust even while she begged me to break it.”

Despite her past, Pim’s fortitude is ever present and now that her mind and body continue to heal, she is no longer content in settling for the inconsistences of Elder’s words and actions. As she pushes for more on a physical and emotional level, Elder reacts by distancing himself but seeing Pim’s courage and ability to trust is the impetus to give more of himself. 

“But now I was awake and ready to feel everything. And those scraps and stars weren’t enough anymore. I wanted planets. I wanted galaxies. I wanted his heart.”

 

description

 

Upon returning to her home country, Pim must face a longstanding conflict and when she does, another layer of healing seems to elevate Pim to a healthier place. Feeling fortified to a degree, Pim is willing to do whatever it takes to prove her love for Elder. In this moment, Elder is pushed to his limits as Pim wants all of Elder and she isn’t about to relinquish her desire for the sake of playing it safe.

“Standing over her, cock hard, heart fast, mind a mess, I growled. “I’ll fuck you. I’ll fuck you until you can’t stand to be fucked anymore. And then I’ll fuck you again. And again.”

What transpires in Thousands is an interesting push-pull between Elder and Pim. For one, the sexual tension is palpable, as both characters want each other so badly that it drips from the pages. Secondly, there are layers of long-standing emotions that reveal much more about Elder and Pim individually and as a couple. As Pim’s healing continues on multiple levels, Pim proves that she is a worthy partner to Elder, and at times, takes the lead while embracing her fears. Elder’s conflicts remain difficult to assess but when Pim pierces through his final layer of armor, he unleashes a physical and emotional side that incredibly rewarding and panty melting. 

Told in dual POV, getting in the mind of Elder and Pim is vital to understanding their motivations. There are times when Elder’s resistance is infuriating yet knowing his rationale adds to his appeal and reinforces his need to protect. While both characters made progressive strides, Pim embraced her new role with tenacity to show just how much of a survivor she actually is. Not knowing when Elder’s past will be put to rest, he and Pim are prepared to fight for what they have despite the consequence. 

In this series, Pepper Winters successfully creates a vivid world with a complex plot and multi-dimensional characters. With themes of redemption, healing, trust and love, Thousands offers a story where vulnerabilities become strengths. I highly recommend Thousands, and with one book remaining in the series, I look forward to reading just how it all ends!
