*REVIEW* ~ Rex (A Stepbrother Romance), by Saskia Walker

#erotic #stepbrother #romance #romanticsuspense

Blurb

Rex Carruthers can have any woman he wants, but he wants only one — his stepsister, Carmen Shelby.

Their desire was once forbidden, and Rex walked away from his heritage as a result. Now, the reading of a will brings them back together, and Rex has something Carmen wants – his birthright, the stately home, Burlington Manor.

Carmen Shelby is haunted by her desire for her stepbrother, Rex — a dangerous, masterful player, the man who broke her heart. Then Rex makes an outrageous suggestion — he will give her the Burlington Manor Estate, in exchange for the affair they were denied.

To resolve the desire that haunts her, Carmen must risk her fragile heart and explore a new, submissive sexuality with Rex, a natural Dom. But while they thrash out their mutual passions, Carmen and Rex discover family secrets threaten and surround them. Carmen learns Rex is her true Master, but can he control the powerful forces that both drew them together – and threaten to tear them apart.

Please note: This book was previously published with a different cover under the title The Burlington Manor Affair. This book has been substantially revised.

My Review – 5 stars

Secrets, Suspense and Hot Sex!

Rex, by Saskia Walker is a super hot and swoonworthy erotic stepbrother romance containing scenes of light BDSM. Rex is such a devilishly sexy Dom – be sure to have an iced drink and a fan at the ready! The romance is central to a solid and well constructed narrative which also explores family secrets and contains danger and suspense. It is the second book I’ve read by the author, the other being her erotic historical romance The Harlot  (click on title for review) and I enjoyed this contemporary read just as much. 

Rex is on a mission – to make his stepsister Carmen his – their mutual attraction has been smouldering for over  decade since she became part of the family. His father’s will offers him the perfect opportunity  – the ancestral home of Burlington Manor has been bequeathed to both Rex and Carmen. Whilst Rex has had no love for his former home, Carmen loves the manor, which for the most part harbours happy memories for her. She intends to buy Rex out. Yet Rex does not want Carmen’s money. Instead he wants her body and offers her a deal – spend four weekends with him allowing him full access to her body as he sees fit in return for the house. How can a girl refuse?  😉

Carmen is conflicted – she wants the house, yet also wants Rex (in fact she has wanted him for SO long, only to witness him go from one short term relationship to the next). This man-whore of a man has shown no wish to settle down and attracts women like a magnet. She resolves to enjoy him whilst she can, without getting too emotionally involved as she needs to protect her heart. Of course this is easier said than done as Rex is very persuasive both in and out of the bedroom… As to Rex, I found him to be an uber sexy alpha male with a heart.

The book contains a combination of scorching and heartfelt scenes as the couple explore their sexuality and feelings for each other, feelings that have laid dormant for far to long. Their  relationship was hampered in the past, a stepsister/brother combo being verboten. Can Rex and Carmen overcome what happened in the past, especially when a series of family secrets begin to reveal themselves? Can Carmen trust the womanising Rex? Will the couple admit their feelings for each other before it is too late and they walk away from each other? When Rex suspects that Carmen is in danger will she trust him enough to allow him to protect her or will she think it is another one of his games? I was on tenterhooks as the plot unfolded. 

A super read which I highly recommend to lovers of contemporary erotic romance.

*REVIEW* ~ Mean Girls, by Lucy Felthouse

#erotic #romance #rubenesque

Adult/18+ Read

Mean Girls

Book Blurb

Adele Blackthorne is a big girl. She knows it, and she’s been picked on all her life because of it. But she’s gotten to the stage where she doesn’t care. She may be Rubenesque, but she’s healthy, too. Much healthier than the mean girls at the leisure center that point and stare and say spiteful things about her. Adele rises above it all, and enjoys her secretive glances at the center’s hunky lifeguard, Oliver.

As the bullying of Adele becomes worse, Oliver finds it increasingly difficult not to intervene. He doesn’t want to get into trouble with work, but equally he can’t stand to see Adele treated in such a horrible way. Especially since he doesn’t agree that she’s fat and unattractive. He thinks she’s a seriously sexy woman, and would like to get to know her better.

My Review

Sweet and Sexy Rubenesque Romance ~5 Stars

I loved this sexy erotic short by Lucy Felthouse.  This rubenesque romance ticks all the boxes when it comes to a sizzling yet sweet read. In it the heroine Adele rises above the mean and petty comments of a group of skinny girls at her local leisure centre and at the same time attracts the attention of its hunky lifeguard Oliver.

Both Oliver and Adele have been eyeing each other up for month and circumstances conspire to draw them together and the fun begins! Oliver adores Adele’s confident personality and just loves the fact that there is plenty of her to feast on! He much prefers her to the self-absorbed bullies who strive to make Adele’s visits to the leisure centre a misery.

Their romance is both hot and sweet as they start to find out about each other and their hang-ups. It contains some very entertaining scenes as the couple explore each other and leave the mean girls in their wake.

Recommended for lovers of erotic romance.

**BLOG TOUR & AUTHOR POST** ~ City Nights: One Night in Budapest, by Lucy Felthouse (plus giveaway)

tourbutton_onenightinbudapest

Unexpected Humour by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #newrelease #erotica #romance #newadult #NA #tirgearr #blogtour

I occasionally get comments from readers about the humour in my books. It’s not in all of my books, and to be honest, except for the most recent stuff I’ve worked on, I don’t think I could say offhand which ones do contain funnies. Reason being… I don’t know I’m doing it. Much of the time, I don’t even know I’ve done it. It’s weeks or months down the line, when I’m working with an editor on my books, and I’ve had some level of remove from the story, that I realise there’s humour in there. It makes me laugh, so it obviously stems from my sense of humour—which admittedly, is pretty bonkers. But I definitely don’t sit there writing and thinking to myself “I’ll just add that in there because it’s funny” or “I must add something amusing to this chapter.” Whatever it is, it just seems to happen naturally.

This was definitely the case with One Night in Budapest. While it’s not got as many humorous parts as in some of my other books, there’s a particular section that made me grin as I wrote it, and laugh out loud as I edited it. Again, it wasn’t something I deliberately wrote to be amusing, more a situation that presented itself, and I saw it mainly as an opportunity to torment my characters a little. I hope it makes you smile, too. I’ve posted a little teaser of it below—though it’s not the whole section, as I don’t want to give too much away 😉

Happy Reading,

Blurb for City Nights: One Night in Budapest

Adult/18+ read

Hermione’s in Budapest on a romantic weekend break. Or at least it should have been romantic—an unexpected break-up means she’s visiting the Hungarian capital alone. Determined to make the most of it, she goes on a night-time river cruise, the perfect opportunity to see some of the city’s beautiful sights after dark.

On the boat, cute Budapest native Emil serves her cocktails. They chat a little on the journey, engage in some banter, and when Emil asks Hermione out for dinner, she’s seriously tempted. But she’s a long way from home, by herself—is dinner with a complete stranger a good idea? Hermione decides to take a chance, and what follows is an unforgettable night which will transform her life forever.

Excerpt

Emil made a note on his pad. “Very good. Would you like to choose your second drink now, or later?”

“Later, I think. Thank you.” That would, at least, give her time to peruse the options at a more leisurely pace so she could find something else she fancied that didn’t have a name with sexual connotations.

She couldn’t help wondering whether she would be bothered about that had Emil not been so attractive. Would she have been able to ask a woman, or a man she didn’t find attractive, for a Screaming Orgasm or a Quick Fuck without bursting into laughter or dying of embarrassment? As she watched Emil walk away, his backside tight and luscious in his uniform trousers, she figured she wouldn’t be able to find out the answer to that question any time soon. He’d clearly assigned himself to her table, probably to ensure she got her bargain drinks. Christ, if they got any cheaper, they’d be paying her to drink them.

Therefore, the way she saw it, she had three options: have another Woo Woo, find something else that didn’t have a smutty name, or suck it up and order whatever the hell she wanted, smutty name or not.

Shaking her head at her own silliness, she turned back to admiring the city as it floated by the windows. At least she had a little while to make up her mind—her first stupidly named drink had yet to come.

  1. Don’t sleep around.
  2. Don’t kiss and tell.
  3. Be nice.
  4. Don’t text or call.
  5. Don’t fall in love.

The rules were simple…until they weren’t.

I have everything I ever thought I would want: a nice home, a job I love, two beautiful girls, and my husband, Gabe – my high school sweetheart who still rocks my world. If you ask anyone to describe me they would say, “Oh, Mirella? She’s such a nice girl.” And that’s true…until a mysterious, peculiar man and his beautiful wife enter our lives.

Weston and Bridget Hanson are no ordinary couple—they’re stunning, enigmatic, and sexy as hell. During the course of one unexpected evening, my ordinary world is turned upside down. How could it not be when Weston and Bridget propose the unthinkable? And when the unthinkable is so very tempting, giving in becomes inevitable.

It sounds so logical and simple. Just five rules and we can all have what we desire. But the heart doesn’t follow rules, and now passion, jealousy, and confusion threaten to tear everything apart.

Two beautiful couples. Five simple rules. One hot mess.

Step into a world of a young man who turns from a boy into a man

Dan’s Desires

Tagline

Lost and shattered, on the verge of losing everything,
can Dan be happy again?

 

Blurb

Dan, a devious, hot, sincere young man, preys on
women like a vulture. He takes up escorting before entering a world of sexual
fantasy in a club called Desires, being paid to have sex. He loves being a naughty
boy without conviction, even having sex with the boss, using any means to have
his wicked way.

 

Then he meets a new client,
Stacie Clifford. He needs to drop the boy act and become a man, yet remember
the club’s emotional contract. He makes it his responsibility to protect Stacie
from Angel the boss of the club. He’s in love.

 

 

He has almost everything: a
wife, son and a baby on the way, ownership of Desires, yet something is missing
from his life, Sapphire his daughter. Unable to move on, feeling destroyed, his
marriage is uneasy. Day after day he fights his heartache, wanting to be happy
and be Dan, the man he once was. Will Dan ever be complete again? What will it
take to get him there?

Erotic Excerpt

He managed to pick the lock and get into the room.
There was not much light as she had drawn the curtains. His eyes adjusted to
the low light and he could make her out on the sofa. Wearing his full
ninja-banana costume, he made his way over to her. He could hardly see who she
was as she wore dark glasses hiding her identity. Who he was about to have his
dick sucked off by, he had no idea, but hell it sounded hot. Dan saw a smile
spark across her face looking thrilled, he had made it.

 

When he got closer he could make out she had short
brown hair and a curvy build with mangoes for boobs. She was wearing a shirt
with the buttons half way undone, showing off her large cleavage. He liked
tits, so he would prefer her to get those out and fuck them, but no a deal was
a deal and his cock was already straining inside his pants.

 

He made his way over to her. She stood up for him
and he saw all her hot curves. Without a word spoken, he sat on the couch and
she dropped to her knees between his legs.

 

She reached inside the yellow trousers and pulled
out his long, thick, throbbing dick and gobbled it instantly into her mouth.
She took his head as far as it would go, hitting the back of her throat. Dan
grumbled. The woman released his cock with a loud pop, and then dived on it
once again. Dan could feel her mouth filling with saliva, lapping and sucking.
She released and groaned. “Mmmmm,” she mumbled. His eyes shut tight loving the
tease she was putting on him.

 

She slid her hand up and down the long girth,
pumping him, using her saliva to lubricate him. Then she plunged back down on
him, her tongue flicked over the tip into his slick opening. The woman dipped
her tongue in his pre-cum.

Festive treat!

FFB Teaser - you don't want

Far from Blind Excerpt:

He closed the door behind them and the distinct click of a lock tumbling over echoed around the room. Maybe no showing yesterday was a mistake. If they’d had any chance at all, she’d blown it for sure. How could she expect him to trust her now? The air, thick with unsaid words, closed in around her.

It was time to take care of business and escape before she embarrassed herself. “This must be for you.” She held out the envelope.

“Thank you.” He took it from her and tore it open, revealing a piece of paper. His cheeks pulled into a little smile, then it disappeared. He maneuvered around his desk and sat. “Do you like me, Candy?”

“Of course I do.” She clasped her arms around her middle. The bigger question is what he thought of her before Club Blind and now.

“Then why didn’t you show last night?” He pressed his lips together and kept his gaze on her.

“To be honest…”

“That’s all I’ll ever expect from you.”

“I’ll give it to you straight. You don’t want a girl like me.” She blew out a breath as if it could help her raging pulse. Never in a million years would she have guessed she’d want a man to tell her she was wrong.

“Is that what you believe?”

“Yes.” She kept her focus on him. He gave nothing away. His expression didn’t change, only his fingers tapped on his desk which was irritatingly neat.

“Then we have a problem.” He stood. “We’d agreed to meet. I kept up my end.”

“And I didn’t.” She blew out a deep breath.

“Come here.”

She didn’t move. She didn’t take her next breath either.

He pointed to the ground in front of him. “Don’t make me ask twice.”

She jumped and then slipped around his desk. Damn, he really did smell good. No matter whether it was aftershave or him, the deep woodsy scent turned here on. Everything about Brad turned her on.

“Did I ask you to join me at Mistress Charlie’s yesterday?”

“Yes, but—”

“Do you believe I’m a liar?”

“No.”

“I don’t think you are either.” He tapped under her chin, lifting her focus back to him. “But I don’t believe you’re being honest with me right now and that’s a problem.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t show yesterday.”

“I appreciate the admission, but I can’t let the action and the attitude go unpunished.”

“What, are you going to spank me?” She chuckled.

“I think it’s time.” He tucked some of her hair behind her ear and his touch lingered along the side of her neck over her ugly mole. “Don’t you agree?”

“Agreed, Sir.” She leaned back on his desk. It was the only thing holding her up.

“Safeword?”

“Red.”

“Very good. Bend over my desk, please.”

“Right here?” She looked around his office. She didn’t find any windows to the hall, but his windows facing the next building were wide open. “You really are pissed.”

The corner of his lips lifted slightly. “The windows are treated. No one can see in here.”

“Oh.”

“You’re stalling.”

“Can you blame me?”

“You do know I’m an accountant, right?” He tugged on her hair. “We like to add.”


Praise for the first book in the Club Blind Series

**ARC REVIEW** ~ Hold Me Until Morning, by Christina Phillips (Grayson Brothers #2)

Erotic Contemporary Romance

New Release!

Book Blurb

hold me until morningA sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

She’s the one girl he should never touch…

Cooper Grayson is supposed to hole up in a mountain cabin and protect his best friend’s little sister from the paparazzi for a week. That’s it. But Paris O’Connell isn’t a kid anymore, and it’s hard to remember this isstrictly business when she bats her big green eyes at him…then crashes through all his carefully placed boundaries.

Paris loves a challenge. And gorgeous Cooper Grayson is the most dangerous challenge she’s faced yet. He ignores the sizzling attraction that keeps her awake at nights, and he doesn’t care about her fame or her contacts, only seeing her. When they finally kiss, Cooper leaves her bare. Exposed. His for the taking. And take he does…

For one incredibly hot week, Cooper fulfils her every fantasy. But when the real world crashes in, so does reality. And reality tells them there’s no way a Hollywood star and a bad boy from the wrong side of town could ever have a future together…

My Review *****

Off Limits Love that is off the Richter scale!

Hold Me Until Morning, #2 in Christina Phillips’  Grayson Brothers series, is another sensual and emotionally charged read. In it the hero and heroine, Cooper and Paris, are thrown together and find unexpected passion and love that feels so right, yet their relationship is off limits for so many reasons. I was unsure how the author was going to turn this story around but I’m pleased that she did!

Cooper and Paris once lived in the same neighbourhood as children, but their paths took very different turns: whilst Paris, encouraged by her wildly ambitious mother, went to Hollywood, Cooper remained living with his drunk and abusive father and his two brothers. Cooper’s friendship with Scott, Paris’ brother, remained steadfast however, and when Scott turns to Cooper, to act as Paris’ bodyguard for a week, whilst she disappears off the celebrity radar, he cannot refuse.

I just loved the author’s plot and how she pairs these two characters together! Expecting a spoiled Hollywood star, Cooper is surprised to find that Paris is anything but. Yet why does Paris opt for a rundown cabin close to where she lives and what secrets is she hiding? There is a lot that doesn’t add up about his new client and Cooper knows that he will have a hard time keeping his hands of her for the week that they are together. He has the reputation of the Grayson Brother’s security firm to think of, not to mention that Paris is the kid sister of his best friend. Cooper has never had a regular relationship, being regarded as a bit of a man whore, so why does the thought of parting from Paris make him feel so hollow?

Despite her worldly reputation Paris is vulnerable when it comes to trusting others and has her own issues to overcome. Paris finds herself immediately drawn to Cooper, who is a real breath of fresh air to her after the insincere veneer of Hollywood. Yet she fears that even given their mounting passion and growing connection,  she is little more than a client to him.  Dare she hope that at long last she has found something real and worth keeping?

The couple’s initial attempts to deny their mutual attraction make for some amusing and sexually charged scenes and once the couple succumb to their feelings, Christina Phillips delights with her deliciously erotic and emotional lovemaking scenes. One of the many elements I love about the author’s writing is how she portrays her heroes. Although Cooper, has had a horrendous childhood, he is committed to protecting Paris from harm and dedicated to ensuring that she is fully pleasured during their lovemaking scenes…. Can this man whose life is so very different to hers find lasting love with a Hollywood star who is evaluating her own life? Can he overcome his own demons from his past and claim Paris as his before it is too late? Will Paris return to Hollywood or will her path once more lead to their parting? I read with bated breath as the plot unfolded, eager for their HEA.

Another page turner from Christina Phillips, recommended to readers of romance and erotic romance.
