Wicked Secret (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #8)

Those that truly know August Greenfield, will tell you that I live my life to the fullest. Work hard as part of the team at Jameson Force Security but play just as hard at The Wicked Horse Vegas. I have no regrets about my life.

Well, maybe just one.

Leighton Hale was my first love and the woman I wanted to spend my life with, but one day she was just gone. Vanished without a trace. Even my extensive contacts as part of the team at Jameson left me empty-handed in my search for answers. My single remorse is never being able to find out what happened to her, because no matter how difficult the truth may be, it can’t be as bad as never knowing at all.

Ten years later, a knock on my front door brings me face-to-face with the woman I thought I’d never see again and nothing in my life could have prepared me for the secrets she holds.

Release Date: August 25th, 2020

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, OkayCreations

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was his friendship that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

Dream Maker (Dream Team #1) by Kristen Ashley

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Dream Man and Rock Chick series comes a brand new story about love, friendship, and the bonds of sisterhood.

Evie is a bonafide nerd and a hyper-intelligent chick who has worked her whole life to get what she wants. Growing up, she had no support from her family and has only ever been able to rely on herself. So when Evie decides she wants to earn her engineering degree, she realizes she needs to take an alternative path to get there. She takes a job dancing at Smithie's club thinking this would be a quick side gig, where she can make the money she needs. But with her lack of dancing skills and an alpha bad boy who becomes overly protective, Evie realizes this might not be as easy as she thought.

Daniel "Mag" Magnusson knows a thing or two about pain, but the mask he wears is excellent. No one can tell that this good-looking, quick-witted, and roguish guy has deep-seated issues. Mag puts on a funny-guy routine so he can hide his broken heart and PTSD. But when Evie dances her way into Mag's life, he realizes that he needs to come face-to-face with the demons of his past if he wants a future with her.

4 Dreamy Stars

Give me a Kristen Ashley book any day, anytime, and I would sit there and read it in one sitting. Ms. Ashley is one of my top favorite authors - I've love her work from the earlier days and it's a "dream" to get a new book from this author. 

Dream Maker brings me back to the Rock Chick and Commando Men days - and I loved it. This book has all the elements of a KA book - stubborn woman and a hot alpha male, who is willing to  do anything to protect his woman in all situations!

Evie is a stripper at Smithies (yes, she is!), but she's the nerdy, little more reserved type, In comes Mag, one of Hawk's men (yes Hawk!!) - he's attracted to her and her quirky attitude.  And it turns out that Mag is there to help Evie when she lands herself in trouble and doesn't know how to get out of it and of course Mag is there. Mag, himself is dealing with a  dark past from his line of work, but having Evie in his life is helping him see the light. 

Again, fantastic read if you a fan of Kristen Ashley!

Dirty Charmer (Royally #5) by Emma Chase

Abigail Haddock is stunning, sensible, and some would say . . . stuffy. But it’s not her fault. She was raised in one of Wessco’s most affluent, aristocratic families—“stuffy” is their middle name. So is successful. Abby’s working overtime to distinguish herself as a top-notch surgeon, just as her family legacy demands.

She doesn’t have time for nonsense.

Tommy Sullivan’s all about nonsense.

Sure, he’s an elite bodyguard with lethal skills and co-owner of the renowned, S&S Securities Firm—protector of the wealthy and titled. But he’s also rowdy, fun and thoroughly irresistible.

Tommy knows how to have a good time, and he’s never seen someone more in need of a good time than Abby. The lass needs long, wet, filthy kisses—STAT—and he’s just the man for the job.

It doesn’t take long for a wildly sexy, sinfully satisfying, no-strings attached arrangement to turn into something more. Something sweet and addictive and real. But Tommy and Abby are too royally stubborn to admit it.

Opposites attract, everyone knows that. But can they last—can they love…for forever?

  Me: Are you texting while you’re driving??
            Apparently, Tommy and his bodyguard brethren are trained to text without actually having to look at their phones, so they can communicate covertly with the device in their pocket.
            But I’ve explained to him—at length—that that doesn’t matter worth a damn.
            I’ve informed him of the overwhelming statistics on the dangers of texting while operating a vehicle and I’ve disclosed my firsthand experiences of seeing the deadly carnage of such behavior during my emergency room rotations.  
            And still, after a weighted pause, he replies:
            Godly Orgasm Giver      : Maybe.
            Me: Well, STOP IT!!
            For a moment, the screen remains quiet . . . and then those sneaky little dots appear again.
            Godly Orgasm Giver: I like it when you get all shouty caps at me—have I ever told you that?
            I’m going to revisit the idea of Tommy teaching me how to throw a punch. It would come in handy at moments just like this.
            “Is everything all right, Abby?” my mother asks. “You’re all flushed.”
            She examines me above her glasses like I’m a bug under a microscope.
            “I . . .”
            Grogg, the butler, bends down and dips his large, square head towards my grandmother.
            “A gentleman is out front, Lady Agatha . . .”
            Oh no.
            “On a motorbike.”
            OH NOOOO.
            “Well, send him away.” The Dowager Countess shoos her hand in the air, as countesses do. “We don’t accept solicitations.”
            I scramble to my feet. “Actually, he’s here for me.”
            I throw my tablet and phone and books into my satchel, to hasten my not-so-great escape. 
            “Pardon?” my father inquires.
            “He?” my grandmother prods.
            I swallow hard, rushing out the words. “Yes. He’s a friend. I messaged him for a lift.”
            My brother Sterling’s eggs-Benedict-laden fork pauses midair on its way to his mouth. 
            “I didn’t know you had the sort of friends who road motorbikes.”
            “I didn’t know you had friends,” my sister Athena comments, not in a cruel way, but with sincere surprise.
            I shrug, looping the strap of my satchel over my shoulder.
            “Yes, well . . . you know . . .”
            With that brilliant retort, I turn and walk out of the room.
            I head towards the foyer, the heels of my knee-high boots clicking rapidly on the marble floor like a ticking time bomb. I yank open the giant front door and . . . come to an immediate stop on the veranda outside of it.
            Because Tommy’s there, down the long gray steps on the front drive, sitting easily astride a shiny contraption of chrome and steel, wearing work boots, snug blue jeans and a black leather jacket—looking so sinfully good it might actually be illegal. 
            I have to remind myself that I’m angry with him, and when I do, I march straight down the steps. His eyes alight on my boots, skirt and light gray sweater—the ensemble gives off an unintended “naughty schoolteacher” feel—and the corner of Tommy’s wicked mouth hooks up accordingly.
            “Hello, sweetheart.”
            “Are you mad?!”
            He takes a moment to think it over.
            “Not the last time I checked.”
            “What are you doing here?” I hold out my hands. “And what is this?”
            “It’s a motorbike.”
            “It’s death on wheels.”
            He chuckles. “James loaned it to me for the day. The hills are beautiful this time of year—I thought we’d take a ride together. You wanted stress relief, didn’t you?” Tommy taps the shiny handlebar. “A ride on this is as stress-relieving as it gets—better than normal-bloke sex.”
            I peer at him. Do I want to know?
            Apparently I do, because I hear myself asking, “Normal-bloke sex?”
            “Yeah.” He winks. “I mean it’s not better than how I do it—obviously. But the way an average bloke has sex—this is definitely better.”
            I shake my head, folding my arms. “Do you have any idea how dangerous these things are? The statistics on motorbike fatalities are—”
            Tommy covers my mouth with his hand.
            His palm is warm, and so is his voice—a thick, sweet, honeyed tone.
            “Do you trust me, Abby?”
            After a moment, he takes his hand away and I gaze into those deep, dark eyes . . . falling into them so easily it should be frightening.
            My answer is simple. True ones always are.
            “I do.”
            Tommy smiles fully, and my stomach flutters with that lovely swirling sensation.
            “Then climb on.”
            He places a helmet on my head, buckling the strap under my chin.
            “And you might want to do it fast—your granny’s coming.”
            I glance over my shoulder to see the whole family gathered outside the front of the door, a spectrum of curious and gob-smacked expressions plastered on their typically reserved faces. And my grandmother is indeed headed this way, her jeweled necklace jingling as she quickly descends the long slope of stone steps.
            Her voice is high-pitched and harried—a tone I’ve never heard her use before, and one I’m not keen on exploring now.
            “Have to be going!” I lift my hand and give them a thumbs-up. “Talk soon!”
            Like a teenager running off with the town bad boy, I hike up my skirt and climb onto the motorbike behind Tommy. He clasps my hands together securely over his stomach.
            “Hold on tight, lass.”
            I do just that—squeezing my arms around his solid frame and resting my cheek against the warm leather on his back as he revs the engine to life and we pull away with a roar that vibrates in my bones.
            And as strange as it is—or maybe it’s not strange at all—I’ve never felt safer.

4 Stars
Ms. Chase is the master of humorous and sexy reads that keep you reading to the very end, and Dirty Charmer is no different. This books has the elements of charm and hot chemistry between the characters of Abigail and Tommy!

Abigail is an overachiever, who is determined to be the best surgeon. She's brilliant at what she does, but...she lacks fun. She lacks spontaneity. She lacks a personal life. 
And that's when Tommy Sullivan comes in, a confident and sexy bodyguard, who is not afraid and is more then willing to open up the beautiful Abigail's mind and life! These two couldn't be more opposite and come different worlds, but their chemistry is way too tight to not explore. 

Tommy and Abby wind up in a mutually agreed upon ”no strings attached” arrangement. They both get swept up in a hot and steamy affair in which deep feelings develop between them. But will she be able to go back to her lackluster life once the affair is over, or will she realize before it’s too late that she needs the excitement that being with Tommy has brought into her world? Another fantastic read!

I stared dully at my painting. My creative mood had left the building, under the weight of the many questions going around and around in my head. Adrenaline made it hard for me to sit still. Cursing Jamie under my breath, I grabbed my laundry basket and headed toward the front door. Peering through the peephole, I double-checked his door was shut before I left my apartment. Glowering at his door as I passed, I hurried downstairs. How the hell had he maneuvered himself into my building? And why?
To my gratitude, the laundry room was empty as I crashed around inside it. I hauled out my stash of detergent and softener from my allocated locker and started separating my whites. That rat bastard. My heart raced, sweat gathered under my arms, and it agitated me. An encounter with Jamie was the equivalent of fifteen shots of caffeine.
And I hated that he knew I was lying to Asher. Something he could easily hold over my head.
“You are a very angry laundry doer.”
Jamie’s deep, rich voice startled me. Trying to control my breathing, I glared over at him standing in the doorway. Arms and ankles crossed as he leaned casually against the jamb. He wore a T-shirt and jeans. Nothing had changed there.
He was still the sexiest man I’d ever seen.
God, I hate him.
“What the hell are you doing in this building?” I turned my back on him, marching over to the stacked washers and dryers.
“I had no idea you lived here,” he lied, his voice growing closer as he crossed the room toward me.
Attempting not to react physically, to not hunch my shoulders in tension, I stared unseeing at the machines. What was I in the middle of doing again?
“What a surprise to find out you’re my neighbor.”
I snorted in disbelief and turned around, shocked to find him already in my personal space. “Liar.” I dragged my gaze insolently down his body and back up. “Move away. And I mean that in more ways than one.”
“Oh, does my presence bother you?” His wicked smile caused somersaults in my belly.
“What are you doing here?” I ignored his proximity. Okay, I tried to ignore his proximity.
In answer, he stepped into me and I stumbled against the machines at my back. Jamie pressed the palms of his hands on the dryer, caging me in. My breath caught and held as his scent flooded me. That dark, earthy scent was enticing, and my body betrayed my emotions.
Feeling panic rise, I pushed at his chest, but he wouldn’t budge. “Jamie?”
Those ocean eyes wandered over my face, cold, calculating. “He doesn’t know who I am. You haven’t told him.”
I lowered my hands. Touching him was even more discombobulating. “No.”
He bent his head toward mine until our noses almost touched. I sucked in a breath. “I wonder why you’re keeping it from him?”
Determined not to let him see how much he affected me, I glared up at him. He’d only have to touch me, hold my hand, to realize I was trembling. His face was so familiar. His lips were lips I’d thought I’d kiss for the rest of my life. Why did the pain of it never dull? Why did it still feel like a shard of glass through my chest? “Did you leak those tapes of Foster Steadman to Asher’s mom?”
Something menacing flashed in his eyes before he banked it. “And if I did?”
“Are you being smart, Jamie?”
“Are you asking out of concern for me or for your billionaire boy toy?”
“Never mind. I don’t care.” The bastard dipped his nose to my throat, and I tensed against the stacked machines. He inhaled, his nose brushing my skin, and my fingers bit into the washer behind me. “You smell different,” he whispered, lifting his head to my ear. “Expensive perfume. You’ve come up in the world.”
I felt his breath caress my skin seconds before his teeth touched my earlobe. Gasping, I instinctively pushed my palms against his stomach as he bit down hard, causing a flush of heat between my legs.
With a dark chuckle, Jamie released my ear after one last nibble and whispered, “Is he the jealous type, Jane?”

4.5 Stars

I didn't know what to expect from this book. The synopsis is vague, but I was so intrigued and couldn't put this book down once I started. I literally read this entire book in one night. There are two parts of this book - part one which tells the story of how these complex characters became friends growing up - Jane Doe, is no stranger of not having a family - she's been bounced from foster home to foster home all her life. So when she meets Lorna and her siblings - she finally feels at home. Part one was wow, but when you reach part two of this book - wowza. It was not what I expected. 

I will not retell or spoil in part of this book, but will say Black Tangled, is captivating from the beginning to the very end and a must read that is heartbreaking and suspenseful. 
 The story telling by Ms. Young is fantastic and one of her best books to date.

Wylde (Arizona Vengeance #7) by Sawyer Bennett

There’s a reason they call me Wylde and it’s not just because it’s my last name.

I might be one of the newest players on the Arizona Vengeance team, but I’m no stranger to the celebrity that goes along with being a professional hockey player. Whether it’s a fan seeking an autograph or a puck bunny looking for more, I’ve grown used to the attention. I not only thrive on it; I use it to my advantage. Let’s just say my bed is rarely empty.

When a quirky redhead at the local bookstore stops me dead in my tracks, I decide to pop in and turn on the trusty Wylde magic. As smart and strong-willed as she is beautiful, Clarke Webber isn’t swayed by my witty banter or charming good looks. And when she realizes who I am and the fame that comes along with it, she likes me even less. Thankfully, I’m always up for a challenge. The more I get to know about her, the more I know my playboy days are behind me.

If I’m going to capture Clarke’s heart, it’s time to be a lot less Wylde, and a lot more Aaron.

Another fantastic read in this series. Ms. Bennett continues to keep the Arizona Vengeance series alive with these characters. Aaron Wylde is one of the hottest NHL star and they call him "Wylde" for a reason - he's just living his best life - hockey career, money, fame and living the playboy life with hockey bunnies. 

But it changes when he meets the quiet, shy, book store owner, Clarke Webber. Clarke is happy selling and reading her books, she doesn't need Aaron or any cocky men in her life. But there is a persistence about Aaron Wylde, that has Clarke intrigued.  And he's not what she expected of him.
