I was never supposed to be anything special. Born and raised in Brownsville, Brooklyn, I was supposed to know my place, and grow up to be absolutely nothing. But what they never knew was that I’ve always been special, just not in the way the world defines the word.
I’m special because I’m more ambitious than them. I’m smarter, and much more violent. When you add it all up, you get a man who’s capable of creating something out of nothing… a brand new mafia family right in the heart of New York. They have no idea what I’m willing to do, or how far I’m willing to go to make my family unstoppable.
I don’t care which Italian mob family thinks they run this city. Their rules don’t apply to me. Tell me I can’t take over this borough, I’ll take it. Tell me I can’t overpower the mafia, I’ll crush them. Tell me I can’t touch a mob boss’s daughter, and I’m gonna touch her up-and-down with my hands and tongue, until she screams she belongs to me loud enough for her to father hear, and then the two of us are going to bring the entire structure of things crashing down around our enemies. She’ll be my Bonnie, and I’ll be the baddest Clyde the world has ever seen.
They say we’re angry for how we’ve been treated. Well, she and I are smart enough to know that if you get angry enough, and you harness your emotions just right, you get two things: passionate love, and a wildfire hot enough to burn down everything that ever held you back. This time, two wrongs will make it right.
~ International bestselling author WS Greer is at his all-time best in this long-awaited mafia romantic suspense standalone. BOSS is action-packed, scorching hot, and will have you out of breath as you struggle to turn the pages fast enough. ~

Sometimes a little heat is all it takes to lighten a heavy heart.

 

Shannon Daniels is afraid of men, but when Matthew Ellis literally falls into her lap, fear is the last thing she feels. For the first time in years, she desires a man, and she plans on taking advantage of her new craving. Shannon hatches a plan to satisfy her sudden hunger, but dancing with the devil will get you more than a one-way trip to hell, and Shannon finds out quickly that even the best-laid plans go awry.
Matthew Ellis swears he will never get caught in the tangled web of a woman. After a devastating heartbreak, he’s determined to die a bachelor. When he meets Shannon, a chubby redhead with a firecracker personality, he decides to add her to his list of conquests. The good news is she’s okay with a hot and heavy fling. The bad news is, for the first time since he was a teenager, being caught doesn’t seem that unappealing.

Synopsis:

What happens when a woman falls in love with her stalker?

I’m not the type of woman who actually inspires passion in any guy, much less one who makes it a habit to watch me because he’s obsessed.

I’m a curvy, plain Jane. I like my chips, chocolate, and junk food, and it definitely shows.

I’m an educated geek who would rather have my nose in a computer instead of a fashion magazine.

But none of those things seem to matter to Stalker. He sees something in me that I don’t see in myself, and I don’t know why.

I’m terrified, yet I’m inexplicably intrigued.

I’m cautious by nature, but something makes me want to know who he is, and why he gives a sh*t about somebody like me.

I know falling for a man I’ve never seen in the light of day is dangerous.

Does he stalk me because he wants to own me, control me, and make me into the woman he thinks that I am?

Does he want to hurt me, or is he just a lost soul like me?

And why did it feel so good to touch him under the cover of darkness?

Is he my nightmare or my dearest stalker?

Getting to know him might be foolish, but for some reason, I just can’t walk away…

Author’s note: This is a red-hot, sexy, curvy girl serial romance with an obsessed, alpha male stalker. Read at your own risk. The stories will come out in quick succession so you won’t have to wait long for the conclusion.

📝My Review📝:

Dearest Stalker: A Complete CollectionDearest Stalker: A Complete Collection by Lane Parker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars
The boxset of Dearest Stalker contains four parts. Having this available in this form is great because you have all four parts of the book in one place. When I first learned of Dearest Stalker, only parts one and two were available so I decided to wait on the completion of the story. I am not a fan of cliffhangers and avoid them usually. I kept checking this author’s Goodreads page to keep on top of when the last two parts were released. And oh, what I happy day it was to get an email from Parker Lane’s PA who asked if I would be interested in reading the box set. Well…duh…no brainer there.

Each of the four parts is around 50 or so pages long. When I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. The pace of the story is pretty fast. In addition to that fact, I devoured the story so eager to get to the end. After the first part, the rest of the story was predictable with the one exception. I knew the s*it would hit the fan, but wasn’t sure how the author would take us there.

Kate has a stalker. She has had a stalker for the four years she was in college. Working on a degree, Kate wants to work in technical engineering. Her dream job is to one day work for the Blackwood company and be part of the technology that successfully creates robotic surgery. Kate’s stepbrothers are Blackwoods. Since she was estranged from her father, she does not know her stepbrothers very well. As the story progresses with each part, Kate becomes closer to the Blackwoods AND her stalker who is always there watching. I will tell you now that this is not a creepy stalker story. As I said earlier, I don’t want to ruin any of the story so you’ll just have to read it on your own. I definitely recommend this boxset.

The characters are wonderful. All of them. There is a complexity to both Kate and her stalker. Also, there is definitely character development. Also, this book is angsty and emotional. It’s sexy and intimate and you can’t help but to love everything about it. I really enjoyed this gem.

Even better……at the end of the book we get a glimpse of the next book which will feature Ben Blackwood and Kate’s friend, Ariel. Can’t wait for that one. At this point I’m not sure if it will be one book or in parts. If it is in parts, I guess I’ll just have to be patient, lol.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Excerpt
Pressing
the doorbell for Olivia’s place, I step back. Only the porch light is on. No
light shines from inside. I can’t imagine she and her roommate are already in
bed. I raise my fist and knock, a soft three-tap, just in case.
From the
other side, I hear a soft meow: Dio.
“Hey
buddy.” He meows again. I picture him rubbing his cheek against the door.
“I guess no one else is home. I’ll see you later.”
Turning, I chuckle.
Olivia’s got me talking to her cat now.
She’s got
me doing all kinds of things—like picking up her father. I wanted to see her
before I left, even if only to wish her luck for her first day at DCF. Maybe
see if there’s anything I should know before meeting him, or if there’s
anything she wants me to scope out before she meets him.
She isn’t
home, though, so there’s not much I can do, other than go back to the club
house and try to get some sleep.
I walk
slowly back to the Screamin’ Eagle. The last thing I want to do right now is go
to bed, mostly because I don’t want to get up at the ass crack of dawn to drive
all the way to Lewisburg. Traveling by train would take longer, and neither my
President or Treasurer were willing to pony up for a plane ticket. Worst of
all, I have to take a cage. It’ll be more comfortable than riding all the way
down, but the more I ride, the less I want to be in a car.
I swing
onto the bike and grab my helmet. Securing it in place, my fingers pause.
Olivia might be working tonight. That would explain why she isn’t home. There’s
also a chance she’s at my cousin’s, but I’d rather not ride all over town
trying to track her down. If she’s already at the club, I might be able to talk
her into staying the night. That way she can crash in my room after work, and I
can see her before I go. Maybe even see her naked.
Two birds,
one stone.
With that
happy thought, I fire up the Screamin’ Eagle, wincing a little as I imagine
poor Dio hiding from the noise. Ever since Eli, he’s been so skittish. If
Olivia hadn’t already killed him, I’d kill the motherfucker myself. Who the
hell tries to kill a tiny, defenseless kitten?
I wish
she’d told me what was going on before it got that bad.
That’s
Olivia for you. She can take care of herself, which is one of the things I love
most about her.
I nearly
stomp on the back brake.
I love her.
It’s a
whole-body realization. The road tips upward, the bike falls down into the sky.
I float for a moment, fingers and toes tingling. Then I slam back into my seat,
the bike firmly on 63. Somehow I still have my balance.
I have to
tell her. I’ve never been good at keeping my feelings to myself. My father’s
headstone is proof of that. It’s either tell her, or walk away, and I already
know I can’t do that.
I can’t
tell her, either.
She shut me
out when I suggested we move in together. I can only imagine what she’ll do if
I tell her I love her.
I love her.
The more I
repeat it, the more woozy my stomach is, like I’ve had a few drinks and I’m
warmed all the way through. At the same time, it makes me need a
drink.
There’s a
good chance I don’t really love her.
I have no
idea what it feels like to be in love. I know what it’s like to love someone—my
little cousin. I know what it means to be loved—my cousin again. But the odds
that I wholly, truly love the first woman I laid eyes on after getting out—not
to mention fucked in the back of a station wagon—are slim to none.
I’ve been
lonely for so long, I’m just imprinting on her.
That’s got
to be it. Because there’s no way someone like me can really love her, not now.
What I think I feel for Olivia can’t be real.
Not after
twenty years of crushing in noses with my fists. I don’t deserve it.
She doesn’t
deserve me.

Excerpt
“The dark
night of the soul? Mind telling me what the hell that was about?” The heavy
wooden door echoed through the tight chamber when it slammed against the door
jamb.
Bastien
remained still across the small sacristy, head bowed as he continued to work
quietly, deft fingers sliding thin, golden ropes of sacred fabric through his
fingers. “I’d rather know what you think.”
Frustration
thickened my blood. “I’m your dark night of the soul?! I think you went a step
too far.”
“If that’s what you call a step too
far I’d hate to hear what you call indecent.” His body was against mine in an
instant, my breasts heaving with shallow irritation and grazing the fabric of
his vestments.
This
profoundly infuriating man was under my skin like no one else had ever been,
and just like a bad tattoo, I’d pay a professional to gouge him out of my soul
if I could.
“This, for
instance,” he hissed, “is surely a step too close to your precious comfort
zone.” His body pressed closer, the deep ridge of his arousal cutting at my hip
and causing my throat to crack and turn to dust. “Don’t trick yourself into
believing that you know you more than
I do, Tressa.”
His dark
eyes glinted in the dim light, heartbeat vibrating in my ears the only noise in
the room. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
I couldn’t
catch my breath, his fingers crawling their way past my wrists, grazing the
underside of my elbows before his thumbs dug in and he was as far deep inside my
own heart as he could possibly go.
“You like
the dance, sweet dove, but just when things get intimate you pull away.”
His
scathing truth cut like a hot blade.
“No,” I
squeaked.
His soft
chuckle my only reply, my eyelids already glued shut in opposition of his
words.
“You think
you only show me the side of you you want me to see,” Bastien’s thumb danced
the arch of my brow, “but I see so much more than that.” His eyes flicked down
to my lips, hips working softly against mine.
“I’m
trained to see the broken parts you’ve spent a lifetime hiding. I’m trained to
be your light in the darkness, Tressa, but all that darkness,” his thumbs
worked inside my elbows, swaying me against his body as he grit against my
neck, “it weighs on me some days. Seminary doesn’t teach a flesh and blood man
how to channel all that darkness into…” he flexed behind his robes, my body
humming with pure desire for anything more he had to give, “productive
activities.”
I didn’t
have a reply for him, the way he swallowed my space and caused my heart to
thrum like a hummingbird was distracting enough, but his skin setting flame to
mine was beyond unbearable.
“What about
you, then?” I summoned my earlier anger. “You fancy yourself some sort of
holier than thou saint? Forgive me Father, but I call bullshit.”
Bastien’s
eyes held mine, the amusement chasing through his chocolate irises giving me
enough satisfaction to live on for days.
I squared
my shoulders. “You’re a prisoner to your belief.”
His
eyebrows rose, shock striking him before his face settled to that same
well-orchestrated calm he reserved for his parishioners. “You can bet I’m a
prisoner, but not for the reasons you think.”
His
admission caught me off guard, but not more than the next moment did.
His palms
caught my face, thumbs trailing down the warmth of my throat before he smashed
our lips together.
His kiss
defiled as much as it gave life.
He raped me
to the depths of my soul without ever removing a strip of my clothing.
“But that’s
where my beliefs with the church diverge.” He lips teased at the corners of my
mouth before his tongue darted out, tasting the bow of my top lip.
Oh sweet
fucking heaven.
“I happen
to believe it isn’t living if you’re not breaking a rule every now and again.”
He caught
the soft whimper on my lips with his, swallowing it instantly before his tongue
pushed past the barrier and he was sheathed in me again.
His taste,
far deadlier than I’d remembered.
“Despite
what my church may believe,” Bastien’s thumbs hooked at my shirt, the warm pads
of his fingertips sliding against my skin and cutting through my nerves like
hot butter, “I can’t renounce you.”
His palms
slid up my torso, divesting me of my shirt while one hand cupped a shiny
chalice, drips of wine already making their way between my breasts. Staining
the satin bra I wore, pooling in my navel, soaking a rebel river of red overtop
the elastic of my panties.
“I know the
taste of sin, sweet Tressa, I’ve tasted it every night in my dreams. Craving
you is a new and deadlier form of hell than the last I’d overcome.” He dropped
to his knees, the empty cup slipping to the floor and soaking his white robes
in scarlet before his tongue met my flesh in slow swipes, eyes glinting as he
held me flush to his mouth.
Soft mewls
formed on my lips as my body fell apart in his arms, limbs loose as he worked
his way up my body, tongue tasting every inch of the blessed wine from my skin
as he went.
“I am very
surely a prisoner to you, my sweet dove.”

Breaking the Brat by Karma Kingsley

Blurb:

Charlie Dixon

“Down for a little choke & stroke. I got you.” That’s the profile of my last Tinder date, and he was oh-so-disappointing. His “choke” was more like a light tap to the neck, and I couldn’t even bear getting to the “stroke.”

The word “intimidating” is one I hear pretty often. From almost every man I meet.

After a half dozen Tinder fails and another dozen setups, I’m resigning from dating. I’ll never meet a man who can handle me.

In one last-ditch effort, I’ve let my best friend take me to one of her kink parties. Disappointment after disappointment have given me pretty low expectations, but then, I meet him. Angelo Tibéa. Tall, dark, with no fucks to give. He’s quite possibly exactly the man I’ve been waiting for.

Angelo Tibéa

I’m not the kind of man who dates. I don’t do dinners, I don’t do kisses and I definitely don’t take my sexual interests outside of the club. I built it for exactly that reason, to keep my darkness contained. But something about Charlie Dixon stirs up everything inside of me. I have to have her… No, more than that. I have to own her.

Excerpt:

“Like everyone else here, you came to get fucked.” He spat the word out so roughly that it made me tremble.

He tucked his hand around the back of my neck and gave it a harsh squeeze. I nearly purred in response, leaning into his grip.

“Didn’t you?” he asked, tightening his fingers around my nape. I was certain I’d have the outline of his hand on me before the night was done.

“Didn’t you?” he asked again more shortly.

I hadn’t. I hadn’t really known why I’d come, aside from Naomi’s relentless nagging. But now, in that moment, it was definitely to get fucked. Specifically, fucked by him. In the most agonizing way.

“I asked you a question,” he bit.

“I heard you,” I snapped back. His intensity turned me on, but it also triggered a disturbing need to be a brat, to see just how far I could push. Just how much he was willing to do to me.

A slow, terrifying smile spread on his lips. “And you think not answering me is an option?” His grip squeezed tighter, so tight my neck throbbed under each individual finger wrapped around it. “It isn’t.”

I shrugged as much as I could, even though his hold kept me mostly in place. “Seems like it is to me.”

“You have three seconds to tell me.” He yanked my head to the side and leaned to speak closely into my ear. “Did you come here to get fucked?” He said each word deliberately, and it set my whole body on fire.

Yes, yes, yes. But I wouldn’t say that out loud. If he wanted to hear it, he’d have to make me say it.

“One,” he said, and the sound of him counting made my nipples tighten. God, I couldn’t wait for whatever happened when he got to three.

“I can tell you aren’t going to let me be gentle with you.” His lips brushed against my ear and I vibrated under his touch.

“Two.”

I rolled my eyes and he grinned a twisted sort of grin.

“Your safe word is red. Only use it if you need it.”

I smacked my lips. “I don’t need a—”

“Three.”
