Walk by Cora Brent Gentry Boys #6 Publication Date: May 24, 2016 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance




WALK-eBook





“I wanted him to know that I really saw who he was; not just some tortured ex-con trying to beat back his demons and figure out his place in the world. Stone Gentry was beautiful. He was a man I could fall for …if he let me.”
1513 ….The number of single lines you carefully scratched on a piece of college ruled notebook paper at each sunrise. 1513…The number of days you passed in a locked cage, surrounded by fierce men who did things even worse than what you did. 1513…The number of nights spent staring at the ceiling praying for just five minutes of freedom to talk to your brother. The brother you love more than anyone on earth. The brother who hates you even more than he hates himself. 1…The number of moments it took for a tragedy to unfold and change lives, end lives, destroy lives. 1…The number that represents isolation, a loneliness worse than any prison sentence. 1…The number of girls who show up in your life and try to crack through the iron shield you’ve built around your heart these past four years. One girl and her name is Evie. Beautiful. Stubborn. Passionate. You know that if you had any honor you wouldn’t take her. But honor is something you lost a long time ago. Walk is a stand alone within the bestselling Gentry Boys series. It is not necessary to have read the rest of the series before reading Walk.



MY REVIEW


After four long years inside, Stone is finally free. Evie and Stone have unknowingly crossed paths a couple of times, but it isn’t until Evie’s friend’s wedding where Stone is working that the actually meet. Stone automatically figures that Evie is too good for him, but his past doesn’t shock her or bother her in the least.

If you have read Cora’s books as I have then I have to believe that you are as much in love with all of those hot Gentry men as I am. Walk is simply amazing! You will be fine to read this book even if you have never read one of her books before, but I bet if this is your first Cora Brent book, it won’t be your last!! She hooks you and does such an amazing job at creating characters that you are going to fall in love with. I love her style of writing. I can’t wait until the next book to get Con’s story!!

When a perfect new love is shattered, two hearts will do anything to pick up the pieces. In this sizzling novel from the author of Stone Walls, irresistible heat leads to sensual thrills—and a secret that changes everything.

Two years ago, Nick Farley was undercover as a bartender in Chicago. The tough-as-steel FBI agent was working all the angles to build a case against a local crime syndicate, but even his intense focus was no match for the sight of Angela Cavallo’s plump pink lips pulling on her drink. All Nick got was one night—the longest, hottest, sweetest night of his life. It could have been the beginning of something real. But instead, she’d walked away—and Nick had watched her go.

Angela has made some mistakes in her life, but Nick wasn’t one of them. Nor was the baby boy he doesn’t know about. But Angela has been running from a stalker for so long that she’s forgotten how to feel safe. So when Nick suddenly reappears in her life, Angela faces a moment of truth. She wants to trust him and reveal her secrets—her life and that of their son may depend on it—but first she needs to know that Nick can handle her past, and promise her the one thing she most craves: a future together.

MY REVIEW



Angela came into The Dump with her cousin Eve where Nick was working undercover as a bartender. Nick was drawn to her. Nick and Angela shared a kiss to ring in the New Year but that didn’t satisfy Nick. He couldn’t stop thinking about her. His undercover job was wrapping up at that very time and he was expected to head to New York, but he couldn’t just leave Angela behind without going to her so he shows up at her door.

Angela is quiet and seems to have something going on in her life regarding an ex. According to Angela’s cousin Eve, she has a bucket list and one of the things that need crossing off of that list is a one night stand. Eve and Nick’s friend Jace basically volunteer Nick for the job and get to work on a contract that will seal the deal between the two.

Up until we are in part 2 of the story, the book has been in Nick’s POV of view, but in chapter 12 we finally get to read something from Angela’s POV. This book is not just romance, it is also suspense. Suspense is one of my favorite types to read and I tend to be very critical because I read a lot and I don’t enjoy wasting time on something that isn’t going to really wrap me up and keep me focused on what is taking place. This book does its job at fulfilling what I want and expect in a book. Suspense is one of the hardest genre’s to write a review for because something small can ruin it for the next reader. So rather than giving you a play by play rundown of what I have read, I would rather just tell you that I loved the book!!

Title: Sugar Daddy
Series: Sugar Bowl #1  
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 24, 2016



Blurb

“This book devastated me in the most wonderful way,” raves Meredith Wild. In Sugar Daddy, the New York Times bestselling author of the Cold Fury series proves that vengeance is sweet—but seduction is to die for.

Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.

The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.

Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!

MY REVIEW


I think the blurb tells you everything that you need to know before heading into this one, so I am going to skip the huge recap of what I read and say that this is my favorite book by this author so far and I have read many of her books and loved them all. I will tell you just a bit about what I found in the book.
Sela unexpectedly finds something with Beck that she never thought she would ever find with a man given her past. Beck is equally taken in by his reaction to her. Their connection is steamy and things seem perfect except for the fact that Sela hates his friend JT and with good reason. By the time she lets Beck in on the reason, her actions have already lead him to not trust her….that takes us to a huge CLIFFHANGER and now I cannot wait to read the next book, Sugar Rush!!
I loved this book so much!! It’s loaded with steam and suspense, which are two of the greatest things for me to find in a good book. I will just hang out here and wait, not so patiently, for the next book!!

Everything is sexy at Knight Fashion Magazine.

Nathan and Olivia’s story is NOW LIVE!








Blurb



Nathan Cross is living his dream. Not only is he modeling for Knight Fashion Magazine, recently voted “sexiest man alive,” but he is dating a beautiful photographer who could be his new future. When he unexpectedly reunites with his past love, his world crashes around him. Two loves. The past or the future: which one will he choose?



Olivia’s past choices come back to haunt her and could ruin everything she has worked so hard to build. Troy has the power to destroy any hope of happiness. She will do everything to keep that from happening, even if it means giving up her second chance with Nathan. Lies. Revenge. Scandal. Olivia could lose it all.



Excerpt
Love can heal and love can make you soar, but Nate’s expression said my love had broken him. The thought of Nate not knowing how much I wanted him back shattered me. As his eyes filled with utter confusion, he waited for me to continue.
             “Then why didn’t you ask me?” Nate scowled. “What changed your mind? Or should I say who changed your mind?” He didn’t wait for me to answer. Instead, he gripped his hair with his fists and walked away.
             “It isn’t what you think.” I searched for the best words to explain.
I might have screwed up finding the right words. It was hard to concentrate with him standing there shirtless, water dripping slowly down his chest from his wet hair. God, he looked sexy as hell. He had no idea what he was doing to me. I wanted to lick every single drop. In my mind, my hands traveled all over his toned chest, wiping away the water like I was his towel.
Nate glared at me, unbelieving, as if he expected me to lie. Then he rushed to me and punched the wall with an expression of rage I’d never seen. His body so close to mine, almost touching, caused my focus to slip away.
             “Don’t fuck with me, Olie,” he gritted through his teeth. “It isn’t what I think? I wasn’t given the chance to think.” He pointed to himself. “There wasn’t much to think when I saw Troy practically on top of you.”
I had known that moment would cause me problems. Nate’s expression eased when I began to tremble. His anger and how he’d reacted seemed to surprise him, too. I found my composure again and continued before he had another episode that was so out of character. There was no going back.
“I couldn’t tell you because of Troy. Not because I wanted to be with him, but because I was scared of him.”
“What?” His eyebrows pinched at the center, and his pitch rose again. “What do you mean you were afraid of him? Did he threaten you? Did he hurt you?”
When I nodded through unrelenting tears, Nate guided me to the bed with his hand on my back. I wiped my cheeks and sat next to him. His proximity drove me insane, especially when my hand accidentally grazed his chest.
“Tell me everything.” he said softly, but it was more of a demand. I could tell his anger had turned toward Troy and away from me.

Tempting Isabel

Exclusive Excerpt:
She let a smile lift her face. God, a smile so sweet it was sensual. He got a chest pain, a good pain, from that smile. Zack smiled back at her. Just staring and smiling, until her smile took on a more questioning look. Her gorgeous head tilted. Maybe unsure of what else to say? Because he sure as hell was. Another silent beat went by until she noticed her purse on the ground. Zack felt panic shoot up his spine. Shit. She was about to leave his vicinity, his world. Damn it, say something…anything, asshole. But then she bent over for the purse. Her firm yet gloriously voluptuous figure, hugged by that professional little skirt, just right in his face—God, he hated himself. He felt like a fiend, a dirty rotten monster for wanting her the way he did, imagining that ass pounding against his bare thighs. He was disgusted with himself for having such a primal desire for such an unknowingly exquisite being. He composed himself as she stood up, and before she turned around, a small coffee-colored blotch on her back caught his eye. A tiny birthmark peeked out from her low-backed top in the shape of a puzzle piece, situated on a slight angle. It just floated there, lost-like. He kept his eyes on it until she pivoted around on her uneven heels to face him. He swallowed and cleared his throat. She smirked then nodded one last thanks to him and his awkward ass, and then left him standing there—his pride in the fetal position at his feet. And Jesus, no hesitation, no glance back over her shoulder, just…nothing. Was she playing hard to get? No. She seemed too self-assured to play that game, and she didn’t have the attitude, either. She had a kindness in her eyes, a stoic sweetness. Games just didn’t seem her style. Maybe married? But he hadn’t seen a ring. He would have noticed a ring. No, it was all so much worse. He didn’t exist for her, just not on her radar, or in her very recent past, or even on her planet. She hadn’t been rude or snotty in the slightest, just wholly uninterested. An earthquake just shook his world to a standstill. A woman, an angel, rather, just limped away from Zachary James in her one high heel without a qualm, without a care, without giving him a first, let alone a second, thought.
