Alicia Wright has always been in love with Hunter Covington. He was the man for her in every way. Well not in a way like Dex Callahan. It started off as retreat with him. It is one weekend of passion, wickedness and fun a way for her to forget about Hunter. The thing is that Dex is proving to be more than she can handle and in some ways it scares her. She knows he is hiding something and Alicia is not the type to see a man she is starting to care for be in pain. Dex is everything she has wanted in Hunter yet fate has something in store for her. Dex Callahan is a man every woman has thrown themselves too. He is hot, sexy, a great musician and the only one who has made Alicia forget about Hunter for a little bit. Dex knows he is the right man for Alicia from helping her find her sexuality to being his salvation. Can he keep Alicia by him knowing that her heart belongs to someone else?

First time reading about Melody Grace and in one word WOW from her sexy Dex to her never really having an adventure Alicia. The sexual chemistry between these two was not only scorching but blazing. I loved that just one look and one kiss from Dex, Alicia turns to putty. I felt exactly what Alicia was feeling towards Dex. Each chapter just made me, well faint from Dex’s sexuality. He was to me like a lion circling his prey which is Alicia. No matter how many times Alicia felt scared or nervous, Dex calmed her down in a wicked way. Melody Grace shined in this book I read it twice not wanting to leave Dex and his demons. The passion they share and the trust that Dex needs in his life was surprisingly great. I loved it and definitely highly recommended.

This is the first I have read from Melody Grace have to say Wow. Just the first kiss between them was scorching. I couldn’t put this book down at all. Right from the beginning I could see how much Alicia has come to mean to Dex in such as short time. Melody Grace blew my mind away with how deep and passionate these two were with one another.

Lady India Sinclair has never had a life of her own. For years her life has been controlled and now she is stuck in an arranged marriage. All she wants is to be free and no man, even Nicholas Warre is going to get her. Since meeting Nicholas she is unsure what to do with her life. One minute she is ready to embark on adventure then Nicholas kisses her and now she is unsure about everything. Nicholas knows that India is the only way he can get his dreams to come true. All he wants is to save his childhood home and with everything in stake he is not letting India get away easily. Can he get India married before he loses his estate?

This is a first I have read from Alison DeLaine and have to say it was okay. I did like India for her spunkiness and not caving in to Nicholas’s seduction. The chemistry was definitely there but feel it was more like a whole chasing game throughout the book. Seemed the whole cat and mouse game just went a little too far. Sadly by the end of the chapter I was relieved they finally ended the chase for something more between them.

Short, sexy, hot and did I mention rocky in every way that Vivian Arend rocks in this book. I loved Mitch Thompson and his bad boy persona. He might wear the black leather and tattoos but there is more to this bad ass. He is everything Anna Coleman needs in her life.

Loved that Vivian Arend started this as nothing but hot sex yet shows us there is more than sex brewing between them. Loved it.

Caitlyn Summers is the best in Hart Investigations. No one can outrun, outkick or make her stammer in her work. Well except one guy. The only guy who she swore was maybe something more but like life so far has failed. Caitlyn’s life is all about her work and nothing else. King of Heart is her life and knowing that women will be safe because of her gives her pleasure. She hates seeing women beaten up, hurt or in self denial because of the men they are with in their lives. So it comes as a surprise that just when she might become partner her boss, Joseph Hart brings in Erich Radner to work with them. He was just a one night stand even though in her dreams she expected more from him. Erich is definitely not the man for this company yet she can’t say no to him. He wants more but seeing all the women she has helped rescue she knows what love can do to a woman. Can she give up all her beliefs for one moment of happiness?

Okay one word for Wendy Stone’s latest, King of Hearts, is AWESOME. I loved the whole storyline and Erich totally messing up Caitlyn in every way. The passion and chemistry they have is unbelievable. I mean right from the beginning you can tell Caitlyn is no damsel in distress. Now Erich was a little hard to like at first but once he puts his heart and life on the line he is easy to love. Like Caitlyn he has a lot of baggage but together these two can overcome anything. This is the first I have read from Wendy Stone and have to say loved it.
