When Lizzy Roberts agreed to go on a blind date she never imagined it would turn into such a nightmare. Thankfully she’s rescued by a dark knight named Rocco, but his heroic act is seen as a violent attack after the judge is bought off and Rocco is sent to jail.

Rocco Lang took one look at the blonde and knew he had to save her. But when his anger got the better of him he ended up behind bars. He doesn’t regret his actions, just that they took him away from her. Now all he’s got are her letters to keep him warm at night.

Can they fall in love with just a pen and paper and their hearts on the page? You’re damn right they can!

Warning: This alpha might be behind bars, but he’s still running the show. Grab your jumpsuits and cozy up because this prison romance is everything your Valentine’s Day needs!

📝My Review📝:

 Locked Up LoveLocked Up Love by Alexa Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
I haven’t read a book from this author duo in a while. Matter of fact, I can’t remember which book of theirs I read last. For no other reason than my lack of time is the culprit. That said, I enjoyed Locked Up Love very much. Just as I remembered the style of writing by this author duo, I felt right at home. It was fast paced, sexy and delightfully over-the-top as is usual with their alpha heroes.

Before they could even develop a natural relationship, Rocco is sent off to jail. I won’t go into details because you’ll want to read this on your own. Regardless of the fact they barely knew each other, in addition to the fact that he was in prison, Rocco and Lizzy managed to connect on an intense level. These two were made for each other before they even had the chance to officially meet. While in prison, these two managed to grow a relationship that started with writing letters. That relationship was strong, bonded in love and yes, protectiveness and possessiveness; another Alexa Riley trademark.

So, again, no more details from me. I will say that I enjoyed this book and am very happy to have read Rocco and Lizzy’s story. While it was over-the-top instalove, it was also sweet and endearing.

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

Title: Wanted Too

Series: Wanted Trilogy #2

Author: Dee Palmer
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Erotic Romance

Release Date: February 10, 2019


Not every Prince is charming… 
How long does it take to fall in love?
For my best friend Finn her fairytale took a little time:
Now she lives out her HEA with her 4 ‘husbands’ on the ranch where all the
magic happened. 
For me, it’s more complicated: 
When it comes to romance, I have a fixed and final to-don’t list.
Don’t do fairy tales
Don’t do love
Don’t do happy ever after’s
I’m a party girl. 
Sex is my favourite pastime, work is my passion
And finalising this deal with Jorgen is my mission.
Jorgen Jensen is Danish royalty. 
Rude, rich and secretive.
He’s also too hot for my own good and has a mission all his
own in mind.
One month with him in paradise.
One month to play. 
One month to change my mind. 
When I find myself on Finn’s doorstep I’m a little dazed and
confused and a lot desperate to forget. 
I need my friend, I need a distraction 
And I need to keep my mouth shut about my mistake.
That shouldn’t be too hard?
I love just three things, my best friend Finn, my mum
and my life. 
I’ve busted my butt growing the business my mum started when
I was a kid and it’s about to pay off, big time.  Securing a multi-million
pound investment with an elusive sex-god CEO is just step one . Unfortunately,
that step is one giant leap I’m not remotely ready for. 
Business man and Danish ‘royalty’ Jorgen Jensen is a threat
to my senses and sanity. He’s also a threat to my rules and is way too easy on
the eye. Although he’s not ‘technically’ my boss, he’s the money and that makes
him off limits. 
Rule one: ‘don’t shit where you eat’. 
I’ve worked too hard to mess this up with sex, even
phenomenal sex isn’t worth it and just looking at him I know that’s all this
would ever be… phenomenal sex.
However, when circumstances change, I’m tempted and agree to
accept the challenge of a lifetime. After all, it’s only one month, with a
Nordic god, in paradise.  There are worse ways to prove there’s no such
thing as love and a happily ever after for someone like me.
Who knew being right would hurt so much?
Landing on Finn’s doorstep, too ashamed to tell the truth
and with my to don’t list in tatters, I really need a place to hide, to forget
and to move on and where better than over the pond at my best friends
Californian ranch with her four husbands.

Title: Resurgent

Underestimate the Power of F*ck It
It’s the
motto I live by, and it’s what made me the Navy SEAL I am today.  The less you care, the better.  Even when I woke up in a hospital in India
with no memory of the last few months and everything pointing to me being a
traitor involved with some pretty dangerous people, I knew I could handle it.

Then they
kidnapped Charlotte—my little sister’s best friend and an organized control
freak with a fear of commitment to anything but her ten-year plan.
I can’t remember
what I’ve supposedly done, or who’s trying kill us.  All I know is I have to rescue Charlotte and
get us both out of this mess alive.
But I
hadn’t counted on Charlotte having her own agenda.  She’s inexplicably haunted my dreams for
months, and now she’s making my reality a living hell.  Because Miss Always-in-Control is hellbent
and determined to lose that control she holds on to so tightly, and she wants
to lose it with me…

“I know you like to know exactly what’s going to happen and how and
when.  But that’s not how it’s going to
happen tonight. Tonight, it’s all or nothing.
You give all the control, all the decisions, all the power to me.  No lists, no rules, no overthinking it, no
trying to orchestrate it all.  You
relinquish it all to me, or not at all.”
“All of it?” My
voice squeaks, but Liam doesn’t waver. 
“All of it,” he
says in that stern, take-no-bullshit tone that makes me simultaneously thrilled
and terrified.  Then he cups my cheek in
his hand and adds softly, “All of you.”
Arousal shoots
straight to my sex like a flaming arrow seeking its target, but it’s accompanied
by a lifetime of fear of letting go, of being vulnerable and giving anyone the
power to hurt me. Can I do this?  I’m
powerless to say no.  Some little part of
me had wanted to keep a little control over things tonight, but faced with the
choice of giving myself wholly to Liam or going back to Charleston, back to my
old life with regret, if we even survive…it’s a no-brainer.   If I’m really going to be different, if I’m
really going to learn to ride the waves and experience the thrill that comes from
actually living, I have to stop
planting my feet in the sand.  And I want
this experience with Liam more than I’ve ever wanted anything. 
The smile he
gives me could power the entire resort.
“Give me your wrists.”
“Give me your
wrists.” His voice has lowered an octave and has a rasp to it that is doing
strange things to my insides.
Oh God. “Um.
I…we…maybe we should take this slow?” I stammer.
“Oh, we will.”
The way he says it makes me think we’re not talking about the same thing. “Now
give me your wrists.”
“I have a better
idea.  Why don’t we sit on the patio for
a few minutes, maybe talk a little…”
I trail off as he
closes the distance between us in two steps, his fingers in my hair as he wraps
my hair around his hand and tugs, forcing my head back.  Distant memories of my dad flash through my
mind and I think he’s going to be angry—after all, I’ve just proven I can’t
even do the first thing he’s asked me without arguing—but instead he presses his
lips to my neck, kissing me softly. “You always think you have a better idea,
don’t you?” he says softly.
This is
Liam.  Not my father, but the man who
makes me feel safe, who makes me laugh, who somehow makes me feel empowered
with every ounce of control I give up.
“Well, um…mmmmm.”
I sigh with pleasure as his lips slowly travel toward my ear. “I do have pretty good ideas.”
“How are we going
to settle this battle for control we seem to have?”  His teeth are nibbling on my earlobe
now.  “Especially since you keep telling
me you want to lose it.”
“Ummm.” I can’t
think straight with his tongue tracing the outline of my ear.
With my hair
still tightly gripped in his hand, he tugs my head back. His eyes are
glittering as he says, “Don’t get me wrong, sweetheart.  I get horny as hell when you make lists and
get all organized and try to control shit, because that’s when you need me to
distract you most. To put you to work and quiet your mind. But if you want to
dance, then you’re going to have to trust me to lead.  You’re going to have to give me all of
you.  Starting with your wrists.”

BLOG TOUR ~ Calm’s Storm (Razorblade Tumbleweeds MC Book 1) by CM Genovese

Calm’s Storm
(Razorblade Tumbleweeds MC Book 1)
CM Genovese
312 Pages




The heart revs harder with gasoline in the veins.
Tesla’s love for dancing runs deeper than her toleration of her father’s MC lifestyle. That’s why she left the Razorblade Tumbleweeds motorcycle club in the first place. The academy seemed like her best bet, but all that fire in her heart and hatred in her soul keeps her dancing in a fit of rage instead of elegant grace. Realizing she can’t escape her past, she heads home to try and face all the heartache she thought she’d left behind.
Link is the new President of his MC. It’s been years since Tesla, the princess to the Razorblade Tumbleweed throne, stomped out of his world on her way to dance for fancy rich folks under bright spotlights. Of course, when things didn’t work out, she headed home. Now, not only does he need to harness all those hidden desires, he also has to help her with her new strip club idea, which means pissing off the locals, the cops, a rival MC, and some sick and twisted reverend from a religious cult.
Rye is about to turn eighteen, and in his religious community of Red Chapel, that means he can start to choose his wives. Life seems good until he finds out the young woman he loves more than anything in the world is betrothed to The Reverend, their sadistic religious leader with an insatiable appetite for power, pain, and pleasure. His only escape seems to be that ruthless band of outlaws he’s always been warned about. If he can only convince Grace to join him and Link to accept him.


Bikers, strippers, and religious zealots collide to create the Calm’s Storm.

“How do you make a MC HEA mix with a slightly gore-ish horror story work? Just ask CM Genovese. I’ve read MC books and there is violence and blood and bad people doing bad things. Then there is this book. The secondary story line is so twisted it’s brilliant how they come together.” – Verified Purchase


“This is absolutely an MC romance, but with a twist that only Chris Genovese could make fit!
Written in 3 povs there is a lot going on in this book!”
~ Verified Purchase


Wow. Just ~ wow. I am completely blown away and captivated by this new MC writer and his new series. LOVED IT!!! I’m hooked and will definitely be following this new series. ~ Verified Purchase


“Calm’s Storm” is a tantalizing, page turning tale full of danger, forbidden love and religious fanatics. The men are sexy, lethal and menacing, while the women are beautiful, passionate and independent. ~ Verified Purchase




Chris Genovese is a male romance and erotica author who often writes from the female perspective. He has a passion for writing sensual tales that take the average woman (or man) and place them in erotic positions. Life isn’t prude so why should we be? If you’re under the age of 18, or if you get offended easily, please don’t purchase these books. If you’re ready to be entertained, aroused, and brought to emotional climax then please do.


Carver Pike is my darker, more twisted alter ego . Where Chris tends to write erotic comedies, poetry, and other fun but sexy tales, Carver likes to stick a knife in it and wiggle it around. If you’re looking for horror and dark fantasy with an erotic twist, you’ve come to the right man. Who new scary could be so sexy?

We vowed forever. What we got was two years.
But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.
She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.
A filthy oil-rig roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my everything. My heart. My obsession. And one year ago, they told me another man took her away from me.

…I just found out that was bulls**t. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Her family never thought I was good enough for her – the wrong side of the tracks, and too rough and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her, and her from me. But now that I know the truth?

Well, now I’m coming back for what’s mine.

I’m twice the man I was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer? Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.

The people that took her from me think they can keep us apart.

…They’re dead f-ing wrong.

A year ago, I thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking back my bride.

And I’ll burn the whole world down to get her if I have to.

Looking for a ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one and only? You’re in the right place!

This one’s equal parts sweeter than sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up ;).

As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

📝My Review📝:

Taking Back His BrideTaking Back His Bride by Madison Faye

3.5 Stars
This book was short, sexy, sweet and to the point!
Since I’ve been reading a lot of romantic suspense lately, I was looking for something short with a sexy, possessive alpha. I totally found that with Taking Back His Bride. Just be warned there is no substance to this book other than a man obsessed with getting back his wife and a whole lot of dirt. But it was just what I needed at the time.

Because Brooks has been overseas on a drilling rig he could do nothing when he got the news that his beautiful wife, Leanna, divorced him. After a year goes by and Brooks had made a fortune, he comes back for his wife. Of course when he finds her, and all is revealed, and much manipulation and deceit are the culprits. I won’t give details because like I said, this book is a super quick read. But I will say that while this book contains a dirty talking, possessive alpha, I thought Brooks was so sweet too.

I do wish we got to see Leanna and Brooks when they met and married instead of jumping three years but still, a good book.

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