Strippers are not her thing yet here she is in a strip club called Bare Assets. Everybody calls her uptight and she is really trying to be a party girl. Yet there are only so many things that Elizabeth Marks can handle in one night. The strippers are okay but something about its owner, Matt Stokes, has her going in a way she hasn`t felt in a long time. Problem is that no matter how hard she tries she is the good girl. Being with Matt is not something she would ever do but he is making her feel alive. His kisses just blow her away in many ways yet she must always be careful. Her family is important to her but being in Matts arms is making her feel wild not the uptight woman she usually is. The challenge was to go to the strip club and not feel anything yet she is definitely feeling something that scares her. Can she keep her emotions in control?

Matt Stokes knows a woman like Elizabeth Marks can never be with a man like him. She comes from a rich family, the upper class side of the tracks. Whereas he comes literally from the wrong side of the tracks and dealing with a drugged up mother. He has no business being with her yet no matter how hard he tries to stay away he goes back to her. Her kisses and passion spark an interest in him he has never felt before which scares him in every way possible. All Matt wants is to prove to her that he is more than just a club owner and their is more to life than just following the rules all the time. Can he protect her from his real feelings or scare her away?

This is the first I have read from Claire Kent and let me tell you it will not be the last time. This is more than just Magic Mike book version for it is about a man who feels like there is nothing else in life and a woman who needs to let loose. Claire Kent was just awesome in this book and man the passion Matt and Elizabeth wowza. This book was like an eye opener for Matt is more than a stripper he is a man who needs to see there is always possibilities. Loved it.

Steve Nolan`s life is in in trouble. Someone has been sending him threatening letters and his partner looks for help to protect him. As a wealthy man Steve knows how to watch over himself but now that he is rich everybody wants something of him. He knows he is being stubborn about having a bodyguard for he doesn`t see any danger. Everything changes though when meets April Porter. Steve is not only wealthy but somewhat of a womanizer and has had his share of beautiful women. Yet something about April is the opposite of what he has been with lately. She is stubborn, persistent in protecting him and doesn`t care about his wealth. Can he trust her with his life and just treat this as a busineess relationship?

April Porter is not your usual bodyguard. Coming from the FBI she is trained to be strong, stubborn and never get her heart in the way. Yet something about Steve Nolan is making her rethink about continuing with the job. Not only is it important but it will help with the finances especially for her father. What was supposed to be just a job is turning to something she never expected and it scares her. With everything that is happening with her father she knows one night with Steven will be distracting but can she continue with the job.

This is the first I have read from J.K. Coi and have to say I`m torn in half. There were parts I liked about especially April trying her hardest with Steven. Yet the other half felt there wasn`t enough about Steve. I mean all we know is someone is threatening him but not his background. Don`t get me wrong the chemistry between them is good yet felt it lacked for me in the storyline.

Trainwreck is what Gail`s life has become since she found out her mother has cancer. Everything in her life has been centered on her mother. Memories of happier times invade her life right now. She has no time for life just wants one more day with her. Gail used to be a good person. School was her thing not having one night stands with the help. No her life was in being good Yet with everything happening the only thing that makes her life feel normal is being with Scott. He is the gardner of her best friend and being with him makes her for one night forget that her mom is dying. She may seem like a bitch to everybody but how can a daughter continue with the only person to ever love her for who she is die.

Scott has been with women before some beautiful and some  crazy but never all in one like Gail. She is his employees best friend and yet he cannot stop thinking about her. He has other things he needs to concentrate on and dealing with Gail is not something he needs right now. His family may be dysfunctional but right now it is his brother he is dealing. All he wants is things to be normal but one job is never enough for him. Sometimes life gives you lemons and it is up to you to make lemonade no matter how difficult that person can be. He knows Gail is perfect for him yet no matter how hard he tries to stay away from her he comes back to her. Scott has no idea what she is going through only knows they complete one another in every way. Can he be with her when his own life is going under?

When I got this book I expected a lot from the back blurb yet sadly it lacked for me.  Throughout the whole book I wanted more of Scott and Gail. I mean Scott is strong in the book and determined to make things right but Gail just to me seemed so whiny. It`s like okay we understand about your mom but she seemed just so stuck in that scene. I kept waiting for a change in her but she never changed which just annoyed me. Hoping the next books by this author would be a lot better just didn`t feel anything for this one and really hoped it would have by the end.

Rowan is an actress, well a struggling actress. Over the years she has worked in so many roles but this next job is a big one for her. The role of publishing and bestselling romance author, Claudia Woods. Nobody has seen the real Claudia Woods and for a very good reason.

This is everything she has wanted to make it big yet she owes Claudia for this once in a lifetme job. Can she be the actress Claudia needs her to be? Can she be the woman Ethan has been searching for his own littel red riding hood?

Oh I just love reading about fairy tales and let me tell you Elissa Daye definitely has a way of bringing them to life. I always loved the Little Red Riding Hood tale and Rowan is definitely the innocent riding hood in this tale. All her life she has worked to be an actress and Claudia is her big ticket to success but never expected a wolf like Ethan to enchant her. Elissa Daye did a great job in showing us a little bit of a chase between them and hiding Ethan`s true identity was a surprise even for me. Short, funny and hot in a new modern tale of fairty tales loved it.

Life shouldn`t be fucked up. Life should be good. Life shouldn`t be full of secrets, betrayal and most of all divorce. Well that is what Devin Garrison thought his life should be like. Nobody told him that his wife and mother of his child will be cheating on him and not loving him anymore. Nobody told him that his heart already belonged to someone else. Callie Caplan. The one girl who even now is more than just a friend to him. Somehow she is the only one who understands him in a way his wife, Ashley, never did before. Callie is the only one who knows what is going on with his life right now. He knows his family and brothers would be there for him but he doesn`t want to feel embarrassed among them. He is the responsible one and should have seen this coming. Callie is the only one who doesn`t make him feel like an idiot and yet being with her is making him want more than just friendship from her. Years ago he had one interlude with her and since then he has never forgotten her. 

Callie Caplan has one rule in life when it comes to men. Never sleep with them more than once. It is a rule that has protected her heart from being broken or in pain. A rule that lately when it comes to Devin Garrison is becoming hard to keep. Years ago she had one interlude with him in a barn and has never forgotten of what could have been. He is the only man to get under her skin and she doesn`t like it one bit. Fate, however, gave him a woman to bear a child for him. A woman who should have loved him forever but fate  didn`t want that right now. Now it is up to Callie to make sure Devin is there for his son. She never imagined herself as a mother or a one man type of a girl yet things are changing. Can she be there for Devin when he really needs her?

In one word AWESOME..I have waited for Devin and Callie`s story since the first one from Victoria DeNault. I loved that we finally see what happened after the barn incident between them. Callie throughout all the books seemed like a tough chick and never knew what made her like this until now. Victoria DeNault just blew me away with their story and loved the chemistry between them never faltered. I loved that though it was Devin and Callie`s story we were able to see what has happened to the other characters like Jesse, Jordan, Cole, Luc, Rose and Leah it was so wonderful to read about them in this book. So loved it and cannot wait what else Victoria has in store for us. Definitely the book to get this Christmas. Loved it.

Keira Johnson has so far avoided the college alumni mixer until now. Somehow her boss, bestselling paranormal romance author Claudia Woods has found about it and is blackmailing her now. With no other choice she is making an appearance for the first time in years and Keira is nervous. She never knew how her life would change so dramatically when she applied to be Claudia`s assistant. Her main goal right now is to avoid everyone at this mixer but one man is determined to distract her. Not just any man but her one regret, Daniel. He is the one man who she has never forgotten and lets face it compared every man she met to him. Problem is that she has secrets about her new life now and is afraid of what he might think of her.

Daniel has never forgotten about Keira Johnson. With every year that passes he has hope this will be the year he finally gets to see her. Even though the last time he saw she was leaving his room he has never forgotten about being with her. They may have been young but he has never felt such a connection with any other woman before. Keira at the time was carefree, energetic and most of all captured his heart. Seeing her now he is determined to win her no matter who wants them apart right now. Keira is his everything and even though she is busy with working with a woman like Claudia he is willing to do anything he can to get her back. Can he be there for her when her real occupation comes out in the open?

This is a first I have read from author, Elissa Daye and have to say I love her new take on fairy tales. Claudia Woods is one mysterious woman in this book and boy have to applaud Keira for keeping up with this author. Elissa Daye was funny in this book and definitely brought in some interesting characters making me wonder if there will be more from them. Cannot wait for Book 2 and more about this publishing house where things go bump in the night making us want more of these creatures.
