The 9 Minute Thing: A Witty, Erotic Novella by Rylie May

Image
 

Wow! This should happen to every woman, at least once in her life. A smoking, hot, younger, rich guy to dominate her, give her amazing orgasms, and buy her all new, expensive clothes. Sounds great to me!

Gillian is a 39 year old, divorced, college teacher. During a student/teacher meeting, Gillian’s student, Blake, confuses and intrigues the heck out of her. She’s not sure if he’s coming on to her or just being cocky, that is, until he kisses her. From there, he pursues her until she’s doing things she’d never even imagined before. And she loves every minute of it… well, except for the surprise he stages for her but you’ll have to read the book to find out what the surprise is.

Extremely sexy, laugh-out-loud funny and very well-written, ‘The 9 Minute Thing’ is a definite must-read. My only complaint is that I wanted more!!

The Bastard (The Baddest Boys in History #1) by Inez Kelley

Image

History teaches us that some men are just plain evil. Stalin, Genghis Khan, Hitler, Vlad the Impaler… All have reputations for being terribly evil by torturing and killing many, many people but to some, these men were heroes.

To his countrymen, Vlad Dracul (No ‘A’. It was later added by Bram Stoker) was a great leader who warned his enemies away by impaling their comrades and putting them on display. To this day, Romanians will tell you that he was not evil.

Most of the world knows Hitler was a sadistic psychopath who killed people simply for the color of their hair, in some cases. To the Nazi’s, Hitler was a man of vision who could take the whole world to a new level.

That said, it seems it’s all in the way you look at it, your perspective, which side you’re on, or what version of the story you’ve heard.

In Inez Kelley’s, The Bastard, the Creator of All, has declared war on evil that has lasted centuries. In present time, the remaining warriors serving on earth, are the “bravest and the best” but, according to History’s point of view, are some of the meanest, cruelest men in all of history. These men are loyal to only one, besides each other, the angel that acts as their leader, the archangel, Josiel, or Sela, as she is known, the head of the Forsaken. The Forsaken is one half of the Creator’s army. They fight the good fight, on Earth, protecting the souls of humans from eternal suffering. The other half of the Creator’s army consists of the Righteous, angel warriors who protect the Heavens, led by the archangel, Michael, himself.

In the beginning of the book, the reader has no clue as to what’s going on. All we know is that a woman is attacked by paranormal beings and is then saved by paranormal beings. There’s talk of soul dust and tattoos that become weapons and, before you know it, you’re sucked in and, as the information is given, you are more and more intrigued. Pretty soon, you wish you could read faster so you can find out all the good stuff but, you also wish the book would last forever because it’s so dang good!

This story is so engrossing and full of information that, someone looking for a light read should save this one for a later date. Once you get sucked in, there’s no getting out until the end. Your emotions will be all over the place as you read. You’ll find yourself cheering for the heroine, Lacey, when she doesn’t give up despite all odds being against her. You’ll sigh dreamily over how sweet Erik is to her and how good they are together. You’ll fall in love with the warriors, and will be delighted by their personalities and camaraderie but shocked by what you find out about them. You’ll also be happy and mad, by turns, and, not giving anything away, wonder what the heck Ms. Kelley did that for. (You’ll have to read it to find out!) It’s like an on-going roller coaster of emotion, with occasional pauses for absorbing bits of history and celestial knowledge.

The best part, besides the very satisfying ending? The warriors are all totally drool-worthy and make great romantic hero material. With, The Bastard, being the first book in the series, I can only patiently wait (NOT!) and wonder excitedly, who the next book will be about.

Wow! A Shade of Vampire is one of the most original books I think I’ve ever read…

With so many vamp books around, it’s very difficult, at best, to come up with a unique spin on the subject. Bella Forrest has accomplished that, and then some!

Combining some common vampire themes, modern day thinking and major imagination, A Shade of Vampire goes where no other vampire book has. Sure, the heroine being kidnapped to become a slave to a vampire, has been done before but the meat of the story goes way off from there.

Taken to a secret haven for vampires, this feisty heroine is unknowingly destined to be a slave for the prince of the vamps, who’s been asleep for 400 years. Kind of like a blood-sucking Sleeping Beauty, except, instead of being awakened by a prince, he is the prince!

I won’t go into any more details so as not to spoil the plot but, if you like vamp books, I’d suggest giving this one a try. There’s danger, intrigue, romance, magic, and mystery, and the characters are three-dimensional in a way that makes you think they could be real people, if vampires really existed.

The ending is a bit of a cliff-hanger, as this is the first book in the series, so I’m more than looking forward to reading the next one when it comes out.

Luminescence, Book 1, by J.L. Weil, is wonderful!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! The beginning was a teensy bit slow but, once it got going, it just pulled me in. The heroine is your average teenage girl, except, she’s not. Turns out that she dreams about a boy that is very real to her. He’s her best friend and they spend a lot of time together, just in her dreams. Suddenly, she runs into another boy at school and she’s torn. Being attracted to two cute guys is okay, isn’t it? Even if one of them’s in your dreams and the other’s a witch!

My only complaint about this book, was the same as most other reviewers’, the editing. There are a lot of typos and misspellings. So many that I had to go back and re-read a few sentences before I was able to figure out what some of them meant. In my opinion, though, correct the errors and the story is wonderful!

Charli’s review of Morning Glory by S.L. Scott

Image

Sweet & Sexy!!!

Best friends who’re looking for love, Nick and Hayley have been closer than close for nine years. Nick even keeps a drawer of clothes at her place. He’s the kind of guy that you grab and hang onto with both hands. Although Hayley acknowledges that Nick is the perfect guy; gorgeous, caring, sweet, and sexy, he’s been her best friend since college. She’s never wanted to risk their friendship by starting a relationship with him. Nick has other ideas but he won’t pressure Hayley and risk her running in the other direction. As they look for love elsewhere, Nick hints that he’s interested in someone new. Hayley, feeling jealous, realizes that they’re more of a couple together than they’ve ever been with anyone else, and begins to think that, maybe waking up together every morning wouldn’t be so bad. Too bad she asked Nick for a little space so she could think, and now she hasn’t seen him in over a week!

Wonderful, sexy story with engaging, realistic characters. Though a quick read, you’ll feel as though you’ve actually experienced a whole lot more with these two.
