~*EXCERPT*~
As I lay there, legs spread wide for him, panting with desire, I remembered why I agreed to the plethora of embarrassing, humiliating predicaments he put me in—because he knew how to take me to heights of bliss I’d never experienced before. As strange as it was, I could trust him to put my needs and my happiness at the top of his priority list, and I knew he would always do right by me. “I’ve got something new for us to play with tonight. A gift actually.” He stood over me, shirtless, and I tried to focus on his words rather than the ripples of his torso. Lying on my back, wrists and ankles bound with my legs in the air, it felt incredibly naughty to be receiving a present in such a vulnerable and aroused state. “What is it?” “I’ll go get it.” He left the room for a minute. When he returned he carried what looked like a jeweler’s box. It was long and skinny—the kind used to house necklaces. A white bow topped the package, and he held it under my nose for me to inspect. An awkward laugh bubbled up from my throat. “I can’t really open it.” His intense, dark eyes pierced mine. “Use your teeth.” He brought the gift so close to my lips it was almost touching, and I bobbed my head forward, taking a piece of the white grosgrain ribbon between my teeth. I yanked my head back, loosening the wrapping. “Good girl,” he said with a wink. “I’ll get the rest of it for you.” “Thank you, Sir.” He ripped the paper off, tossing it to the floor. Then he opened the sapphire-blue velvet case that had been underneath. A bright, dark-silver strand of pearls gleamed up from the cream-colored satin they nested against. “Pearls?” He smirked. “I knew you’d already have some white ones.” I nodded. “I do. But these are beautiful, Quentin. What are they, black pearls or some other kind?” “You’re right. They’re the black ones. But it’s not as much what they are as what I’m going to do to you with them.”

~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
Tested by Her Webmaster is the intense continuation of Quentin and Sophie’s relationship. In this second book the author takes us on a crazy and delicious journey between Quentin and Sophie. We get to learn more about the characters that I fell in love with from book one. This book has a little bit of everything in it: sexiness, jealously, love, heartache, pain, and hidden pasts that play a starting role in their epic roller coaster love story.  To me, this book is so much more than sex. This story is so unique it keeps you intrigued from the beginning and right until the last word in the book. I also want to point out there is a cliffhanger in this book and the next book will be coming out in the next couple of months. This leaves me with… Normandie Alleman, I really don’t know if I should kiss you or just give you the cold shoulder?!
 
This story picks up where the first book left off.  Quentin and Sophie are making their long distance work as they try to see each other twice a month.  Since Quentin is the master of kinkiest he suggested trying to bring some excitement into their relationship: a trainee that wants to become a Dom. As BA and Sophie develop a relationship with each other online, it brings out a different side of Sophie. She doesn’t want to develop feelings for BA because she loves Quentin.  As time goes by she starts having feelings for BA because he is there for her in ways Quentin cannot.  When you as a reader find out more information about BA, your jaw will drop!!! Which leaves us with a great a cliffhanger, even though it’s horrible, it’s still a genius ending!!
 
I am looking forward to the third book for so many reasons and finally finding out answers! I am so excited and anxious to know how everything ends up for Sophie and Quentin!

Hopeless Vows by Rachael Duncan Review + Giveaway


~*SYNOPSIS*~
It was a modern take on an arranged marriage that was supposed to lead to my happily ever after. The rules were simple: 

1. Marry a complete stranger chosen for you by professionals.
2. Live together as man and wife for eight weeks while cameras record your every move.
3. Make a decision to stay together or get a divorce.
Call me crazy, but I had complete faith in the process, until I saw who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.
Austin James has never met me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know him. With no other choice, I say my vows and pray I can make it through the next eight weeks. Then I’ll leave. What connects us is my best kept secret, and I’ll protect it at all costs even if that means walking away from the only person I’ve ever cared about.

~*EXCERPT*~
The longer this experiment goes on, the more I fall for him, and the more the deceit eats at me. When I lie awake some nights, it crawls up my body, tickling my skin, reminding me that underneath, I’m a horrible human being. Deceitful. Cowardly. Manipulative. Selfish. All negative adjectives, and all describe me. He’ll never find out, taunts an inner voice. What’s worse is that it also tells me it’s okay to keep this from him. That the two of us can live out this fantasy unscathed and content. As delusional as my inner voice is, I find myself clinging to it like a leech, feasting on the lie.

~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~

Jillian Taylor is twenty-eight and works as a columnist for a fashion magazine.  Jillian past haunts her everyday and decides she needs to stop living in the past and start a new future.  Jillian has been in one failed relationship after another and resorts to applying for a reality show called "First Come Marriages."  The show is about an updated way of arranged marriage. After meeting for the first time at their wedding, the couple starts their married life with the camera around them. After eight weeks they will have to decide if they want to continue their relationship or go through a divorce.
 
 As Jillian begins to walk down the aisle she stops dead in her tracks because she knows who her husband is going to be:  Austin James.  He is part of why she is running from her past and never in her wildest dreams thought she would be matched up with him. 

Austin will be your new book boyfriend because he has all the qualities that make for one of the best I have ever read in a book lately.  Austin is funny, sexy, charming, and he adores Jillian so much and invests everything he can to make the relationship work. All through the book you are wondering what is going to happen, what is the secret, and will they work out in the end? This story sucks you in. Leaving you feeling everything that Austin and Jillian are feeling. You are wanting them to have the perfect happily ever after.

This is the first book I have read by Rachael Duncan and it will not to be my last! This book is a FIVE LEAVES review but I wish I could give it more leaves because of how good it is!! I loved Rachel's writing style and how easily everything flows together.  The dialogue is crisp and the setting of the story will transport you seamlessly.  This book gives you all the feels from the heartwarming to gut-wrenching.  To say I was shocked by the secret is an understatement, I would have never imagined what had happen to Austin and Jillian. It was amazing and I loved how the story played out!!

RoomHate by Penelope Ward Review + Giveway


~*SYNOPSIS*~


From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.



Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?



Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.



When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.



The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.



The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.



I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.



The worst part? He didn’t come alone.



I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.



The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.



Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
