Review: The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde


The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde has it all. Lots of sexy moments, a lot of drama, and a family that rivals any of the families on Dallas that I watched growing up.

Emery used to date Landon Wright when she was in high school. However, after a few years together, Landon dumped her hard. Of course, that was almost ten years ago now. Emery has moved on. Unfortunately her taste in men hasn’t improved that much. After catching her most recent long-term boyfriend with another woman, Emery has had enough. She drops out of her PhD program and returns home to Lubbock, Texas, to be closer to her family while she decides what to do next.

What to do next does NOT mean having any kind of contact with Jensen Wright, the oldest Wright brother and the head of the family. It certainly does not mean making out with him at his sister’s wedding and then… accepting a date. It does not mean a wild night of sex where, come morning, he’s giving her the cold shoulder. Why does Emery seem to have a soft spot for the Wright men?

The Wright Brother throws two tough talking characters together and has them butt heads in the best way. Emery is tired of constantly giving the WRONG man a chance. She does not want a relationship but she just cannot say no to Jensen. For Jensen, he’s hesitant to get involved with his brother’s high school girlfriend but the friction and energy he feels with Emery makes it hard to stay away. Of course, in the course of trying to resist temptation, he behaves quite ignobly at times. After their first night together, he hustles her out of his house fast and like Emery, I was angry. He does apologize but I was really glad that Emery did not make things easy for him.

That being said, Jensen has some pretty deep motivations for his actions. His relationship with his ex-wife is awful and she burned him big time. While I hate the trope of the hero believing all women are “bad” (except for the heroine!) after a break-up, Jensen’s ex pulls some pretty awful things on him. I sympathized with his actions a bit more after discovering what was going on in his life.

Emery is far from perfect (as we all are!) but I just really liked her. She’s a bit of a tomboy but the more important things are that she is a good friend, a good sister, and though she’s at a crossroads in her life, she is not letting that defeat her. Emery is ready to handle life’s curveballs.

The Wright Brother is a sexy and fun romance. There is a great chemistry between the main characters but also just a fun rapport between the supporting characters too. I liked spending time in their world. K.A. Linde will hook you in with this charming Texas tale.

TWB Amazon

I’d dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

Catching Carly excerpt reveal!

prologue reveal2




Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00027]My name is Carly Porter… And I’m really good at bad decisions.

How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb…

I had sex with my best friend’s brother.

Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.

And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.

Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?








“This never happened.”

Zeke raises an eyebrow. “Nothing has happened.”

I put my hands on my hips and glare at him. “Don’t be a dick. You know what I mean. This is only going to happen because I’m a little drunk.”

“I thought you said it never happened.”

“You’re being a dick.”

His grin is wide and a little cocky. “So right now it’s happening because you’re a little drunk, but tomorrow it won’t have happened.”

I nod. “That’s right. You and I will forget it ever happened.”

His blue-green eyes sweep the length of my body before he meets my gaze, his lips dropping into a self-sure smirk. “Trust me, Carly, you won’t be forgetting this when I’m through with you.”

“Through with me? What am I? A naughty child awaiting punishment?”

“Look, if you want me to spank you, I’m good with that.” He raises his hands in front of his body. “In fact, I’m more than good with that.”

I blink at him. It really doesn’t help that he has his hands up like that. He has big, rough hands that would feel pretty good across my ass…

Good lord, Carly. Focus.

Wait. Does that count as focusing? I think it might.


“We’ll see,” I finally say, clearing my head of that momentary fog. “The point is, whether your ego insists I’ll remember this tomorrow—”

“You will.”

“—Or not,” I continue, ignoring him. “As far as everyone else is concerned, it never has and never will happen. Are we clear?”

“Crystal. Now, are you going to shut the hell up?”

“No. As a rule, I don’t shut up. Ever.”

Zeke steps forward, shutting the distance between us in less than three seconds. He lifts his hand to my chin and cups it, dipping his handsome face down close to mine. “That’s fine. I think I’ll prefer it when you’re screaming for more and calling me God.”

I raise both of my eyebrows. “I’m not going to call you God.”

“I guarantee you’ll feel differently when you’re having the best orgasm of your life.”

“That’s ambitious.” I’ve had some pretty good orgasms. Mostly battery-operated ones, because they can’t cum, so they don’t have to stop.

Zeke circles his strong arm around my waist and yanks me right against him. The force with which my body hits his makes me gasp, something that only makes his smirk a little stronger. “That’s exactly what’s going to happen.”

“Again,” I say, swallowing. “Ambitious.”



He lowers his face so the tip of his nose brushes mine and locks onto me with his gaze. “The next time you talk, you’ll be screaming my name.”

I open my mouth to rebuke that ridiculous—yet hot—statement, but he’s quicker. He drops his mouth to mine and takes my bottom lip between his. His teeth graze over the soft skin, and an uncontrollable shiver rockets down my spine.

Dear god, he’s barely touched me and I want to whimper like a puppy wanting a belly rub.

Except, of course, I want him to rub a whole lot more than my belly.

And do a whole lot more than rubbing while he’s at it too.

This is dumb. I know this. It’s dumber than dumb. It’s the most stupid idea in the history of stupid ideas.

Hell on a Harley Davidson, I’ve lost my goddamn mind.

Review: Undeclared by Julianna Keyes


Burnham College #2

Ever since I finished Undecided by Julianna Keyes last summer, I’ve been anxiously waiting for Kellan’s book. When Julianna Keyes started writing on her FB page about her writing process for this book, well, it made me even more excited! (I definitely recommend those posts by the way. They are a fun behind-the-scenes development of a book.) I was wondering how Kellan would be redeemed because in the first book, while he seems like a nice enough guy, he was pretty wild and committed to not settling down.

Summer is coming to an end Kellan is back in his hometown for a short time. While visiting the local pool, he sees his neighbor and childhood best friend, Andi Walsh. She also happens to be the women who he lost his virginity with. It almost seemed like something might be developing between them when all of a sudden, Andi stopped speaking to him. Kellan was hurt but didn’t know how to make an overture to her to ask for forgiveness. He left and went to college in Oregon, while Andi was stuck in their small hometown.

Finally, Kellan is getting the chance to talk with Andi again, to maybe make things right between them. But somehow, even after a shared moment before Kellan leaves for his third year at Burnham, things don’t seem quite right. Kellan has quite a few unresolved feelings and when he sees Andi on campus, those feelings loom large in his mind.

Andi accepted a volleyball scholarship to Burnham but did not tell Kellan. He cannot believe how bad things between them truly are if Andi cannot even tell him that she is now going to the same school. And when she tells Kellan that what she wants is the same thing he wanted his first year, a chance to be someone new, to live and experience different things, well, Kellan is a bit jealous. Andi has always been his in some way.

As the school year gets underway, Kellan has some hard truths to face about what he wants for his future (including how he can avoid his annoying school counselor, Bertrand), what he wants with Andi, and if he can reconcile the playboy college guy of the past two years with who he truly is.

I really was not sure what my reaction to Kellan would be as the story started. I didn’t dislike him in the first book but I am also a bit over the big man on campus college storyline, so I was very pleased that Undeclared did not veer in that direction. It is in fact quite clear in the other direction as Kellan does a hard examination of his own life. Kellan matures throughout the course of the book. It’s a gradual thing so you won’t be surprised by some of the dumb things he does initially but I really liked that he was trying to be someone he himself would like.

The story is told solely through Kellan’s point of view but I didn’t find that to be a detraction in terms of understanding Andi. She’s always been the tomboy, the second-class person compared to Kellan’s star persona. She wants something different and she deserves something different. Even Kellan recognizes that. I think it was difficult for him to accept that at first though because Andi has always been so much his, the champion of his life. It is superbly selfish of him but then, he’s a twenty-one year old and I accepted that he would still have some selfishness about him.

I really liked Andi. Despite her athletic ways, I connected to her quieter personality, her need for deep connections with those closest to her, and her need to make a life for herself outside of her hometown. I also thoroughly approved of an action she took late in the book. I mentally gave a fist pump in fact. I think in the beginning she was perhaps too easy on Kellan but she wised up quickly and was able to convey that his treatment of her better improve, NOW, or there would not even be a friendship to salvage.

Undeclared is another shining effort from Julianna Keyes. I loved seeing Nora and Crosbie again (he’s still up to his illusions!) but I fully loved getting to know Kellan better. There is a lot of depth and heart to him, if only he isn’t afraid to show it. I’d hate for Julianna Keyes to give up writing contemporary romance but man oh man, there is no doubt in my mind that she has really mastered New Adult. I just plain love her books and Undeclared joins that list.

Undeclared is available today!

“He’s a bad boy … and a nanny.”

Holy sweet baby Jesus.

I don’t know anything about taking care of kids.
I pierce nipples, navels, and noses for a living.
I’ve never even held a baby before. Not once. Never changed a diaper or cleaned up a skinned knee. Hell, I don’t even want kids. I’m more of a drifter, a once in a lifetime lover, and then I move on.
Family? Commitment? Nuh uh, no way.

Tough sh*t, though, because my brother and his kids need me. Desperately.
I never thought to wonder if I might need them, too.
That I might need her, this strange woman I met at a playground.
Brooke Overland.
She doesn’t know I’m not a professional nanny, but what am I supposed to do now?

She hired me; I took care of her sister’s kids for her; I f*cked her.
My life is so screwed-up.

Review: Your Tempting Love by Layla Hagen


In the mood for a straightforward, guy meets girl, they connect and fall in love? Look no farther than Layla Hagen’s new release, Your Tempting Love. Victoria Hensley is an interior designer who has recently opened up her own business with her best friend. Right now, word of mouth is their best advertisement and that is how she connects with Christopher Bennett. She recently worked on his sister’s home and since Christopher liked it, he is eager to work with Victoria. He doesn’t realize quite how potent she is as a woman however until they meet in person and the chemistry ignites between them.

Their flirtatious banter is off the charts, even as both realize that maybe what is happening is a little bit outside the realms of professionals working together. Christopher can’t seem to help himself. The more he is around Victoria, the more he wants her. When he learns his sisters are trying to set him up with Victoria, his interest should have died down. But that just isn’t happening. The more time he spends with Victoria and her family, the more invested he is in her. Perhaps this die-hard bachelor is ready for a serious connection?

Victoria is just trying to get by lately. After the death of her parents, she gained sole custody of her seventeen-year-old sister, Sienna, and her two younger adopted brother and sister. Add to that a growing business and Victoria has no time to fall in love. She’s been burned before by getting interested in clients on more than a professional level so she wants to avoid that trap at all costs. But being around Christopher and not reacting to him as a woman to a man is hard, especially when she sees how wonderful he is with her family. But can Victoria let down her guard and trust her instincts that Christopher won’t just be another wham bam thank you m’am type of guy?

Your Tempting Love is the first book I’ve read by Layla Hagen, and the first book I’ve read in the Bennett family series. But I jumped in and had no problem with connecting with Christopher and Victoria, or Christopher’s extended family. Right off the bat, these two have great chemistry. I admit, sometimes I had a little secondhand embarrassment for Victoria and the things she let slip to Christopher, but he was always sweet about her banter. His open personality just swept her in!

Victoria is a great character. I really admired her for taking care of her siblings, while grieving for her parents, and working to start her business. She has a good head on her shoulders and though she is aware of some of the professional mistakes she has made in the past, that isn’t stopping her from being successful now.

What I liked most about this book is how simple and ordinary it felt as a love story. They meet, they flirt, they realize they really like each other and eventually fall in love. There aren’t huge obstacles along the way but there are enough conflicts to keep the story interesting. Lest I make this seem like it’s boring, I promise, it is not! It is a sweet love story and something I didn’t even realize I was in the mood for. This is a great modern contemporary romance!

Today we’re celebrating the release of YOUR TEMPTING LOVE by Layla Hagen! Check it out and grab your copy today!!




Christopher Bennett is a persuasive man. With his magnetic charm and undeniable wit, he plays a key role in the international success of his family’s company.

Christopher adores his family, even if they can be too meddling sometimes… like when they recommend him to employ Victoria Hensley’s decorating services for his new apartment in an attempt to set him up with her. Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting.

Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents’ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes.

But Victoria and Christopher’s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts and reading bedtime stories to her sister Chloe.

Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn, and oh-so-persuasive.

When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?

Royally Matched Release Day!




Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Sarah stands up and presses her lips against mine. And it’s so unexpected, so surprising—I freeze up. But only for a moment. As her mouth gently moves over mine, I begin to thaw. She’s so fucking soft, her taste so very sweet. The kiss is almost chaste—at least it’s the most chaste I’ve ever had. Unpracticed.

And yet, it still manages to make my heart pound against my ribs like an animal in a cage.

“What are you doing?” I whisper, when she pulls back just a little.

“I’m distracting you.” She looks up at me uncertainly. From behind those ridiculously prim little glasses with those big, dark eyes that could bring me to my knees. “Is it working?”

My tongue traces my lower lip, craving more of her.

“I’m not sure. Keep trying—I’ll let you know.”

She smiles quick and relieved . . . and then she reaches back up, wraps her arms about my neck, and kisses me.

Her two lips envelop my lower one, then the upper, all eager, pleasing sweetness. My hands find Sarah’s lower back and I pull her in close, tight against me. Slowly, I open my mouth and she mirrors my movement, opening for me. And it’s good. So very, very good.

It’s like my blood has turned to gasoline, and the touch of her wet, warm tongue is the spark.

I delve deeper, kiss her harder—more demanding—taking the lead. I cup her head in my hands, holding her still while I plunge and devour. A moan seeps from her lips and I devour that too.

But then, breathing harshly, I tear my mouth away.

“Sarah, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should just—”

“I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I’ve wanted this for a long time. I want . . . you.” It’s only then that hesitation dims her eyes. “Do you want me too?”

I grip her arms. “More than I’ve wanted anything or anyone in my entire life.”

She takes my hands in hers, lifts them and presses my palms to her breasts. They’re soft and full and absolutely perfect.

“Show me.”

Beneath her robe, her bedclothes are paper thin. I trace my thumbs across her nipples, feeling them harden and peak. I want to suck on them until she’s mindless. I want to lick every inch of her skin and watch her flush with desire.

I wrap my arms around Sarah and lift her right off her feet. With a groan, my mouth is back to hers. Her small pretty hands cup my jaw as I carry her toward the bed. I stop against a wall on the way, knocking a frame sideways, lifting her leg in one hand and wrapping it around my hip so I can thrust against her.

There’s so much I know—deviant, filthy, lovely moves. And I want to teach her every damn one.

Review: Tapped by Liz Crowe



Tapped by Liz Crowe is an erotic romance. When brew master Austin meets Evelyn, he is instantly smitten. One hundred percent insta-lust. The bad thing is he is recently kind-of, almost engaged to another woman. His attraction to Evelyn takes him by total surprise.

Evelyn wants nothing to do with Austin. She knows he’s a playboy and the golden boy of the micro-brewing world. She has worked hard to make a name for herself in the profession and to her, Austin has just gotten by on his name and family alone. There’s some truth to this but Austin has definitely worked hard to become a talented brew master. He studied in Germany and knows his beer. He also happened to share a lot of sexual experiences with his friend, Ross, another brew master.

When Evelyn and Austin start a relationship together, it is not easy. Between Austin’s family expectations (especially his mother who is not the nicest to Evelyn), Evelyn’s own doubts about their relationship lasting, and Austin’s unrequited feelings for Ross, they do not have an easy road. When Ross enters Austin’s life again, things only get more complex.

I will be honest. Tapped was only an okay read for me. I had a hard time investing in Austin and Evelyn’s relationship as I couldn’t quite understand the instant attraction they had to each other. Evelyn in particular I had a hard time connecting to, much as I tried. But Austin’s instant love baffled me. He had barely met Evelyn and suddenly he was realizing that there is no way he can marry this other woman, that after a lifetime of sexual experiences, Evelyn was the one for him.

Add in Ross, who complicates their relationship even more, and I just felt very distant from these characters overall. I liked the business aspects of this book though. The author clearly did her research into the brewing world and that showed.

While Tapped was not the strongest book for me, I firmly believe that for every book there is a reader out there and I know this book will resonate with other readers.


The Brewing Passion Series #1
By: Liz Crowe
Releasing February 14, 2017
Totally Bound: Entwined


When wealthy brewery owner Austin Fitzgerald meets sexy saleswoman Evelyn Benedict, angry sparks fly. They seem destined to clash, until a hot hookup in a cold beer cooler changes everything.

For Austin, it’s a life-altering moment that sets him on a path away from his birthright, while Evelyn must face her fears about committing to a man considered the playboy of the micro-brewing world.

The power of preconceived notions nearly tears them apart—until they meet up with brew master Ross, who opens their eyes to a deeper, even more erotic connection.
But three strong personalities don’t always make for the best emotional mix and when a simple misunderstanding causes chaos, it’s up to Ross to somehow repair the tattered shreds of their relationship.
