  • Hyde, an Urban Fantasy on Feb. 02, 2013

    I received this book from the author for a truthful review. HOLY HELL PEOPLE!!! This book is AMAZING!! Ok so you prolly want more of an explanation right? You shall get one. First of all, I approached this author because in college I was loved my British Lit classes....yup I was an English Lit Concentration. The fact someone wrote a contemporary version of Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde made me want to read. I saw she wanted reviews and this book SCREAMED to my inner school nerd to read. I was thrilled she said yes and juggled my reading schedule to devour this book. You don't have to know or have read the original book at all because you will love this story. Ok so the story and characters, ready and GO. Mitch (you better hope he likes you cuz only those he likes can call him that) is the biggest smartass, jackass, POS male around!!! His secretary Jolie is an total and utter bitch (GROWLING and when you read you will understand). Eden is a SAINT!! she wont cus, swear, or LIE...ever!!! Carter is Eden's "boyfriend" without the benefits who is sweet and kind but...something ain't right there. The book begins with Eden waking up buck naked and VERY SORE all over *wink wink* and not with her boyfriend but a complete stranger!! Needless to say FREAK OUT!!! Well things keep happening and she stumbles in to Mitch's office who just happens to be the man who gave her the great "workout". Well they have a lot of great hateful banter back and forth which I completely enjoyed!!! Mitch has a big secret. His "Hyde" is a cold murdering man where Eden's "Hyde" is a total sex crazed woman!! The two begin to work together to help Eden control her "Hyde" and end up falling into bed for like 4 friggin days...uhm yes please can I try that kind of therapy please!!! Throughout the story there is a mystery of "The Clinic" and you know they are involved with dosing and controlling Eden and Mitch without their knowing. Throughout the book there is also an investigation about who killed Mitch's sister, a chick at a bar and a drug dealer which allll is very important to the story. I have to say, when I find a book I enjoy I scream it from the rooftops. This book is definitely one of those books. I cannot say enough about the book. When I am done with this review, I will be opening my nook to read Jekyll (Book 2) further messing up my book blog reading schedule but IT IS WORTH IT!!!!!!!

  • Brie Pleases her New Master (After Graduation, #1) on Feb. 02, 2013

    Ok Ok soooo I was given this book from the author and I happily accepted because she is amazing!! If you don't already know, I love this author. She is amazingly gifted with the ability to make you, the reader, connect with her heroine Brie. I FEEL like I am Brie whenever I read these stories. Now BEFORE you read this book you need to make sure and read Brie at the Training Center first. This books will take place after she has been collared with her new Master. Ok so this book is about the first couple days Brie and her new Master have together. She is still very much in the learning process especially since her Master is a very well known and respected Dom. I had a big giggle when Brie and Master were *busy* on the sofa and Master had a phone call....very funny scene with Rytsar on the other end. Man that's a guy I wouldn't getting to know a little bit better *cough cough spin off series cough cough* cuz YUMMY!!! Also as we Red readers know from the first novel, Brie and cooking= epic fail. Again poor Brie tries her hand at cooking and it is a riot....omelets and spaghetti....giggles...Now the part of the book I didn't giggle with was the Wolf!!! UGH let her go Man!! I was a little bit disappointed in Brie for not telling Master about what happened between them this book BUT Brie is such a tender hearted girl. She doesn't want anyone in pain and feel bad for following her heart and breaking his. I can't wait for the next installment and yup it will be getting a review here because we LOVE LOVE LOVE Red. I hope that you enjoy the series as much as I have and continue to.
  • Queen of Hearts on Feb. 02, 2013
    (no rating)
    I received this book from the author for a truthful and honest review. WOW! This was a great, hawt, quick read. I will say I have read many forms of erotica BUT this was my first F/F. I loved how both of these characters showed true flaws or quirks when it comes to dating. Maya was the girl who would do everything to push a person away because she was terrified of true love and commitment. Erica was to busy throwing all life into her being the "Queen of Hearts" that she didn't date plus didn't believe she would ever find that one special person for herself. I found her to be kinda funny because here she sells love but really doesn't believe in it for herself. So anyway, the two meet at a new club and Maya sees Erica...sparks. Maya and Erica have a pretty intense encounter that night but in typical Maya fashion she RUNS for the hills. When Erica awakes she is a little sad because she actually enjoyed Maya. Well the two ladies think about the other but figure they will never see each other again.....BOOM Maya walks into Erica's dating service with her best friend and they are re-connected. Now I am leaving a BIG part of the plot out because HELLO I want you to read it. But lets just say Erica could be in BIG trouble dating Maya if anyone finds out.....curious aren't ya. I know you are. I gave this book a 3.5 stars and mainly it is because I wish the book would have been longer. I loved the book don't get me wrong! However, at times, I wish the scenes would have been longer and not so rushed?? I think this ia a great novel and it definitely got me thinking about Valentine's Day and what the hell am I going to get my husband!! LOL I look forward to reading her other two novels and doing reviews on them. You know us Twinsie's LOVE the new and upcoming authors!!!!
  • Touch My Heart (Heart And Soul) on Oct. 27, 2013

    I got this book from the author for an honest review. First I must begin this review with a SCREAM to the author....Shaking my fist....I yell..".PALOMA!!! you can't leave me hanging like this!!!!"..... Ok now with the review.....So I fell head over heals with William when I read the first book in this series. He is a Dominant who knows what he wants and he wants Aubrey. The first book of the series is all Aubrey's POV. We learn why she is so insecure and how William get her over it. This book is Williams POV. We see him grow more and more in love with Aubrey as she grows more and more confident in herself. There is overlap between the books but I loved it. I remembered the scenes and where Aubrey's head was so it is cool to see William's take on everything. This book does take you out past book one to see William and Aubrey finally admitting their love for each other. I will admit to tears at that point. We, the reader, knows how they feel but to finally see it.....priceless....... William finally gets to take his little elf home to meet his parents. no shock that they adore her!! She also is supportive of everything he is dealing with in terms of his mother...sniff sniff......I was glad when William got to finally talk to Aubrey's parent to see how AWFUL they are in regards to her. I was so happy with the way this book was moving and grooving that when the last few pages are read I had to back track and re-read to make sure I read it right. I was GASPING at this cliffhanger....I didn't see it coming and I will tell you that I cannot wait to see what the heck happens!!!
