Ricochet by Keri Lake – Review

Front Cover

The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.

Three years ago, I had everything.

A beautiful wife.
A son.
A reason for living.

Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.

They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.

A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.

I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.

Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.

An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.

If she doesn’t destroy me first.

Anyone who injures their neighbor is to be injured in the same manner: fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth.- Leviticus 24:20

Nick Riley is on a mission. After losing his family in the most horrible way he has become Detroit’s newest judge, jury and executioner. He knows the truth, monsters do exist because he watched them steal his life and take everything he loved away. Nick is now a man on a mission and with the help of his friend Alec Vaughn, he plans to take down the dirty, corrupt mayor named Michael Culling and his precious wife Aubree. He will stop The Culling on Devil’s Night. They are responsible for his loss, for his pain and he plans to make them suffer, just as he has suffered.

After Aubree is kidnapped, Nick is forced to watch over her and he does all he can to control the hatred he feels toward her but there are other feelings she unknowingly draws out of him, feelings he hasn’t felt in years and it scares him. Things aren’t always what they seem when it comes to Aubree and Nick finds himself wanting to save her instead of killing her.

“You’re a fighter. Your scars aren’t about the rounds you’ve lost. They’re about the ones you walked away from. The ones you survived.”

As Nick and Aubree’s situation and feelings change, Nick’s revenge mission stays the same but his life mission is different. Aubree has brought him back to life, made him feel but mostly, he realizes he has the ability to love again. He will do all he can to protect her from the monster she married even if it means he won’t walk away from this war he has started alive.

This book was dark, suspenseful and so intense. My heart broke for Nick and what he witnessed, broke him. Aubree became his light and his reason to live.

Keri Lake did a fabulous job in creating these monsters and creating a dark hero with Nick. As disturbing as some of the scenes are, Keri delivered them with finesse.

Brace yourself for a wild ride of revenge and suspense. Be prepared to fall in love with the passionately complicated, broken man, Nick Riley. I guarantee, he will have your jaw dropping.

An unconventional love story about revenge that is raw, dark & twisted, intense and shockingly beautiful.

Wicked Fall by Sawyer Bennett – Review


Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.

He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.

Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

K3’s $0.02:

OMG.. All I have to say is this book is freaking HOT!

After his father passed away, Woolf Jennings and his older brother Tenn, inherited the families successful ranch and Oil Company. Woolf finds himself the CEO after his brother bowed out to live his own dreams. Just like his brother, running the family business isn’t his dream. So what does a young millionaire decide to do? Well, he opens a bar with his best friend Bridger, they call it The Wicked Horse. This isn’t just any bar, it is an erotic and very private sex club.  Woolf loves kinky sex and he gets plenty of it, he has never wanted to settle down but then Callie Hayes ends up back in his life front and center.

Callie Hayes is back in Wyoming after finding her fiancé in bed with another woman in a very compromising situation. She is determined to move on and life her life to the fullest, tired of always being sweet and following the rules, she wants to live life on the edge, but that has been a little hard to do being the Governor’s daughter.. She ends up at the new bar in town and enters a wet tee shirt contest and is about to win until she is pulled off the stage by none other than Woolf FREAKING Jennings, the man she offered her V card to and was denied.

Beautiful, smart and all grown up, Woolf is seeing Callie in a new light but what is leaving him confused is the kinky side of her and as much as it scares him, it turns him on like no other. When he introduces her to “the kinky side” of the bar, he knows he is in over his head.

They have always shared a sexual chemistry and when they get together, it is a wild, kinky and crazy ride. Callie knows that Woolf isn’t the kind of man that will settle down and Woolf thinks he isn’t worthy of a woman like Callie. You know that saying, sometimes we can’t see what is right in front of us?

Bridger decides to take things into his hands and play match maker so to speak and things get sinfully kinky *fansselfoff*

Things seem to be going well with Woolf and Callie until the truth comes out. I will just say reputations are on the line, a life is threatened as is a few businesses and hearts are broken. With the help of Bridger, Woolf prepares for a fight of his life to finally get the happiness he has always wanted.

Sawyer Bennett did not disappoint with this story, the characters are fantastic, the story has a great flow and it was so much fun to read.. Fun, sexy, angsty, romantic and perfectly kinky. You will definitely be fanning yourself off, A LOT!

Bonus Scene

Carter POV – Chapter One – Steel and Lace #1


Nikki had been hounding me about this opening for weeks. I knew I couldn’t keep it from her, we’d been fucking for months and as much as I tried to keep her out of my business life, she always managed to weasel her way in. It didn’t matter, showing up with someone was good in a social situation; and Nikki wasn’t a bad date to have. The press made more of an effort to turn up at these events if they thought the beautiful and bitchy supermodel Nikki Vilanova would be on my arm. She was always good for a little drama in the tabloids; not that I liked the drama but I could appreciate the role the press played in my line of work. They’d been following our relationship for a while, if you could even call it that. When she was in town we spent time together, we were never anything more or less. I walked the line with keeping her at a comfortable distance and keeping her happy because she was a great fuck. That had been established the first night we were together.; she was wild and uninhibited and never wore out her welcome. She didn’t require any post-coital cuddling– just the way I preferred it. I had a bedroom attached to my office for late nights that had the added benefit of serving as a fuck pad. She’d asked once or twice for me to take her home, but I’d been able to put her off easily. The truth was, I wasn’t comfortable bringing anyone home. I was wary of who I could trust and wasn’t comfortable inviting them into my house and my life any more than I had to.

Nikki and I had shown up just a few minutes before to the opening of a new boutique on Newbury and it wasn’t long before I was bored out of my skull. Nikki giggled and kept a predatory hand on my forearm as we sipped champagne. My eyes scanned the room for faces I knew and wanted to avoid, and for those that I would need to mingle with tonight. Madeleine would have been my first choice for a date, she was great with these things; she had the ability to direct conversation and knew intuitively when I wasn’t interested in talking to someone. Nikki on the other hand was interested in talking to everyone; she liked to keep as many connections in her back pocket as possible, never knowing when they would come in handy later. I guess at the end of the day I was just another connection for her, albeit one that she fucked when it was convenient.

I tightened my jaw when Nikki’s fingertips trailed up my forearm suggestively. I ignored her intimate gesture and brought the champagne flute to my lips before my gaze settled on a pair of dark green eyes that were focused on mine. Striking, soft, gentle green eyes. My heart rate accelerated and the conversation around me seemed to fall away. The world halted as my eyes focused on the dark-haired beauty staring back at me.

My gaze dropped to the chestnut tendrils framing her beautiful, heart-shaped face. Her full lips were curved in a soft frown as she looked at me. What could she be thinking that would have her frowning at me? Perhaps my reputation had preceded me, it wouldn’t be the first time.

But this girl– I knew I had to meet her, to talk to her, to hear her voice; those lush lips curving around sensual words. I envisioned soft lips locked on my ear lobe, whispering breathless moans along the skin of my neck, hearing her call my name as I sank into her.

Fuck me, this girl is affecting me.

But I knew I was affecting her too. I could see it. She couldn’t break our intense stare down any easier than I could.

Finally the world started to spin again and I arched my eyebrow at her, a silent acknowledgment of the moment that had flared between us. I watched her take a quick breath, her full breasts perfectly outlined in her fitted white dress. Fuck, I wanted to feel them in my hands, suck on them, tease them until her nipples hardened. What color would they be when I coaxed her body into arousal? The same shade as her dark, rosy lips?

Her eyes widened for a moment and then she turned back to her friend and tried to pretend that I hadn’t just swept the air from her lungs.

I had to meet her.

I waited until the party cleared out later that night and Nikki was tied up with someone else. I didn’t know with who and I didn’t care, I was just glad to have her off my back so I could seek out the brunette beauty that I’d been consumed with all night. She’d never been far from my sight. I’d followed her with my eyes, insuring she didn’t leave and watching her mingle. In my perusal, I’d noticed every single server pass her flirty glances as they gave her champagne. Jealously poured through my body when she smiled sweetly back at them. I’d have to call the company that provided the waitstaff and make it known in no uncertain terms that if the servers couldn’t refrain from flirting with the guests, they would no longer be getting my business.

I watched as she spoke to her friend, a smile spreading across her face, her eyes crinkling in the most captivating way. My heart skipped a beat every time she laughed because her entire face lit up and her green eyes danced. I swear that smile had every guy in the room falling at her feet, but I knew intuitively they weren’t her type; they couldn’t make a girl like that happy. And even if I wasn’t her type, I’d make it my mission in life to be.

Fuck if I can’t keep my eyes off her, I’m ruined.

“Great view.” I breathed in her ear as she stood at the windows looking out over Boston Harbor. I wouldn’t know if the view was great or not, all I could think about was running my hands through her hair. Twisting my fingers in it, feeling the silky strands caress my skin. Fuck, my dick’s getting hard just thinking about her hair.

What the fuck is wrong with me?

She spun around and a spray of champagne landed on my herringbone suit. Her burning green eyes traveled up my body. I held my breath as she took me in.

“Oh my God, I am so sorry,” she finally spoke before setting her glass down on a nearby table and digging through the tiny purse she was carrying. My eyes flicked from her flushed face to the liquid dampening the arm of my suit. I frowned for a moment and wondered how I could work with this situation. The thought crossed my mind that I could coerce her into a date in return for spilling on my suit. A smirk played across my lips at the thought.

“It’s alright.” I placed a hand on her arm and fire sparked in my system. Her soft skin beneath mine had the blood pumping through my veins at a punishing pace. She took my fucking breath away and I hadn’t even gotten her dress off yet.

“I’m sorry, I’ll pay to have it cleaned. If you send the bill to me. Here…” She said before she was off digging in her bag again. Fuck that bag. Look at me.

“I’ve got it. Really,” I said as I squeezed her arm reassuringly. My eyes couldn’t help but trail down her curvy body; past her defined waist, her lush hips that I couldn’t stop thinking about digging my fingers into. I imagined those shapely legs wrapped around my hips as I plowed into her soft body. Fuck, my dick grew impossibly harder as my brain shut down.

“Carter Morgan.” I held my hand out to her.

“Evangeline Austin,” she replied as she placed her small hand in mine. I was lost in the swirling green depths of her eyes as we gazed at each other. The world fell away and all that existed in that moment was her hand in mine.

“Hey Eva, are you ready? Everyone who’s anyone has come and gone.” I heard a voice burst our perfect, hypnotic bubble. I didn’t care. I was choosing to block everyone else out. Nothing mattered more in that moment than the beautiful, green-eyed angel whose hand was locked in mine. “Uh… hi, I’m Cate Evans.” The voice at my shoulder intruded on the moment I thought I was having with this girl– Evangeline, Eva. I glanced to see the friend she’d been with all night. Short, blonde, bubbly Cate Evans; my mind registered the name and filed it away for later.

I only nodded at her and then my eyes searched out Evangeline’s again. I couldn’t stay away from her for long. I knew nothing about her and yet I was sure of that. I was consumed with the beautiful, flustered, carefree Evangeline Austin.

“Well Evangeline, despite the fact that you may have ruined my favorite suit, I hope to see you again.” Fuck if that didn’t come out wrong. Here I’d met a beautiful, dark-haired angel and I may have fucked it all up before it’d even begun. I flashed her the confident smirk that generally gets me out of trouble in any given situation and hoped I could rectify the bad impression I’m sure I made on her.

“Ms. Evans.” I addressed her friend before giving Evangeline one last lingering glance. Then I dropped her hand and turned to walk out. I scanned the room for Nikki and saw her drinking with a large group by the bar. Nikki was a party girl in the truest form and tonight wouldn’t be the first time I’d ducked out before midnight while she stayed out ’til dawn.

I pulled my phone out of my pocket as soon as I hit the pavement and found Parker waiting along the curb.

“Mr. Morgan.” Parker nodded as I slid into the backseat.

“Evening, Parker.” I mumbled as I scrolled through the list of contacts on my phone before I found the number I was looking for and hit send.

“Johnson? Find me everything you can on Evangeline Austin and Cate Evans in Boston. May be connected to the fashion industry. It’s time sensitive. Thanks.” I hung up as Parker pulled into the traffic of the Boston night.

Evangeline. She was an angel after all.

Flame by Erin Noelle – Trailer reveal!


I’m soaring.
After years of hard work and determination, I am exactly where I want to be in life. As the top ranked Freestyle Motocross rider in the world, I have more money than I could ever dream of spending and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me in every city I land. I have everything I could ever want.
Everything except her.
While in Breckenridge for my best friend’s wedding, I was introduced to Dakota Shavell, a friend of the bride-to-be, and from the moment our blue gazes met, sparks flew.
What I initially intended to be a single steamy night together turned into a scorching two week road trip to New Orleans with a sassy-mouthed blonde. Being between her legs gave me a bigger adrenaline rush than I’d ever gotten from flying through the air while straddling a bike.
It was supposed to just be fun, a good time. I planned to walk away unchanged.
But it was more. Feelings I never intended to have got involved, and I’ll never be the same.
Yet, I still walked away.
Except now I’m injured and my outlook has changed. Priorities have become clear.
And I’m going back to reclaim her…to show her that together we can make the fire between us burst into flames.
***Though Flame is the second book in the Fire on the Mountain Series, it is an interconnected stand alone novel***

Strong Enough (Tall, Dark, and Dangerous #1) by M. Leighton – Review


From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the first in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy. 

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her? 

How would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.

K3’s $0.02:

What an amazing wild ride!

You have Muse, a beautiful and smart woman who seems to pick the wrong type of men. Then the mysterious Jasper appears in her life. He is going to help her find her father who has gone missing.

Jasper is a kick a$$ then take names kind of guy. He is that silent and deadly type of man. Gorgeous, mysterious and is the best at his job. He has a job to do and he has never failed at his job.\

What happens when Muse and Jasper are in a room together? SEXUAL TENSION that just exudes out of every pore of their bodies. They are constantly battling their desire for each other.

Jasper has never wanted anything more than to be with Muse, but being the complicated bounty hunter that he is, he does nothing but confuse her by sending her mixed signals. His secrets and his pain are his and his alone to bare. He believes that if he came from a monster, that he is too a monster. One that Muse doesn’t deserve.

Muse knows that Jasper will break her heart but she is willing to take the risk. Every now and again, she is able to see the man Jasper clearly believes no longer exists and she is going to do all she can to get him there again.

Their hot, and intense journey is an angsty one and it leaves Muse with more questions than answers. Once they believe things have settled down a bit, they find themselves and their loved ones in danger. When a man from her past re-enters her life, Muse is left questioning everything she has ever known. When the truth comes out, Muse is left with the destruction and a shattered heart and once again, finds herself having to start over. *Jaw drops in shock*

Leighton has once again created some fantastic characters. Once again, I am wow’d!

This is like the Bourne Identity meets the Bodyguard. Be prepared to remain at the edge of your seat and the sex scenes are unbelievably HOTHOTHOT let’s hope that you are Strong Enough!
