CaptivatedByYou

Gideon was a creature of habit, his life rigidly ordered and compartmentalized.  Any deviation from his established patterns was so rare it was cause for concern.

The Book Barista: A Million Guilty Pleasures by C.L. Parker

Logo

I received an ARC of A Million Guilty Pleasures from NetGalley for my honest review.  Release date is set for February 4, 2014.

***

AMillionGuiltyPleasures

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a tempting new novel of secrets, lies, and redeeming passion.
 
Two million dollars secured Noah Crawford the most enticing woman he has ever known. Initiating Delaine Talbot into a sensuous world of pleasure took them both to the brink—again and again. But when Noah discovers why the beautiful innocent sold her body to the highest bidder, he’s faced with the hardest thing he ever had to do: Set her free.  
 
Lanie can’t believe Noah would let her go. Doesn’t he know they share a bond deeper than sex—a connection too powerful to sever? Not even a treacherous enemy out to destroy Noah or the dark secret haunting the multibillionaire can keep them apart. But first Lanie has to show him that he belongs to her, even if it means risking everything for a love that can never be bought or sold.
 
A Million Guilty Pleasures is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

***

This is book two in the Million Dollar Duet series.  It seemed like a very long time since I spent time with Lanie and Noah and I was very anxious to see what the Cooch and Wonder Peen would get up to.  C.L. Parker did not disappoint.  Lots of steamy sexy times for these two.

We also get more insight into Noah’s partner David Stone.  We get to find out how much more of a douchebag he is as he attempts to make trouble for Noah and Lanie.

I can’t forget Lanie’s best friend Dez.  She is the comic relief in this book.  She is fiercely loyal to Lanie, just as a best friend should be!

I loved the ending to this book.  I give it four steamy cups.

I was so happy to get an ARC for this book (in exchange for my honest opinion). It is being released December 3, 2013.

Gabriel's Redemption

Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.

But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront her about the subject of her presentation – research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.

In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family. Continue reading


The Book Barista: Jagged by Kristen Ashley

Loving EVERY Kristen Ashley book I have ever read I knew I was in for a treat in this fifth book in the Colorado Mountain series.  I was ecstatic to get an ARC from NetGalley for my review.  The expected release date is November 5, 2013.

Jagged

An old flame rekindled . . .

Zara Cinders always knew Ham Reece was the one, but he wasn’t interested in settling down. When she found someone who was, Ham walked out of her life. Three years later, Zara’s lost her business, her marriage, and she’s barely getting by in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. As soon as Ham hears about Zara’s plight, he’s on her doorstep offering her a lifeline. Now, it will take every ounce of will power she possesses to resist all that he offers.

Ham was always a traveling man, never one to settle down in one town, with one woman, for more time than absolutely necessary. But Ham’s faced his own demons, and he’s learned a lot. About himself, and about the life he knows he’s meant to live. So when he hears that Zara’s having a rough time, he wants to be the one to help. In fact, he wants to do more than that for Zara. A lot more. But first, he must prove to Zara that he’s a changed man.
