Blurb:

Beth Mason seemingly has it all. A successful bakery/café called Decadent Dreams, good friends, and a nice home in Stamford, New York.
After her previous boyfriend dumped her six months before for not spending enough time with him, Beth decided that she had been through enough and wanted more in a relationship. Throwing herself back into the dating scene, Beth decided to go onto an online dating website called, ‘A Foreign Affair.’
Enjoying the different types of men from all over the world that ‘A Foreign Affair’ catered to, Beth became struck by a handsome man from Belarus named Yuri who was the former manager of the famed Rhapsody night club. After realizing that they had a lot in common, the two struck up a close, intense relationship.
Yuri, who’s been depressed since his nightclub burned to the ground and watching his best friend’s parents both die from a terminal illness, decided to take Beth up on an invite and join her for a fun-filled weekend in New York City.
With both of them full of emotions, will the weekend be just what they needed or more than they bargained for?

Decadent Dreams was an amazingly HOT!!!! read. I could totally relate to Beth and Yuri. I myself met my husband on-line and he was from a different country than me. I could completely understand how Beth and Yuri had such intense feelings for each other, in what appears to be, a short amount of time. Not only did I love the relationship between Beth and Yuri but I also loved Yuri's relationship to his best friend Nik. There is such loyalty and love between them, like you would see in any other best friend relationship. The chemistry between Beth and Yuri is undeniable. They have so much in common and their lives sort of intertwined when you find out Beth's brother interviewed for a job at Nik's company a few years back or when Beth and Yuri were both in Paris but never met. They say everything happens for a reason and this book makes that saying so true. Yuri may have mistakenly messaged Beth in the begging on the website A Foreign Affair but, if that had not happened, Yuri and Beth would not be about to enter into the next phase of their life together. Therefore it was meant to be. Too many times in life people are afraid to throw caution to the wind and embrace new experiences. Ty seems to know just how to make a story and relationships seem authentic and not contrived. It takes a real skill to do that and I think Ty captured it perfectly. On a scale of 1-10 I give Decadent Dreams a 20. I know, I know it is off my scale (and I have given a few books this rating) but if I didn't know any better it could almost be my life Ty was writing about and that is truly a unique experience  Books don't get any better than that. I encourage EVERYONE 18+ to pick up a copy of this novella and fall in love with Yuri and Beth.

Review Of Forever (Mercy Falls Series Book #3) By Maggie Stiefvater

Blurb:


The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater

In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. In Linger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

I loved reading Forever but for me it felt more like another installment rather than a conclusion. I was actually left with more questions seeing as (in my opinion) the ending didn't resolve everything I was hoping it would. I love how Maggie upped the stakes by making the wolves hunted, therefore, it gave the characters added pressure in trying to find a resolution to their plight. I loved the chemistry between Isabelle and Cole. I also enjoyed the evolution of Cole from suicidal to becoming the person he was always meant to be. But, of course, I can't forget about Sam and Grace. They have a love that transcends all things. It is pure in it's innocents and all consuming  in their devotion to each other. Grace and Sam are two halves of a whole. They do not work well without each other. When they are together they are capable of great things whether it be for each other or the pack. The ending left such a wide door open (in my opinion) either for a fourth book or a possible spin-off for Isabelle and Cole. If this was supposed to be the last book I wish Maggie would have closed the door tightly and sealed up any cracks that were left over. With that being said, I really did love reading Forever. Yes, I had some ending issues but, if you are a fan of this series like I am, reading this book is a MUST. On a scale from 1-10 I give Forever a 10. Just because the ending wasn't as I had hoped it still didn't take away from how great a book I thought it was. Everyone needs to run out and pick up a copy of Forever. If you are new to this series you really need to pick up a copy of Shiver, and Linger on your way to picking up Forever.

Review Of Makhi (Incubus Enforcers Series Book #1) By Mahalia Levey

Makhi
Makhi (Incubus Enforcers Series Book #1) By Mahalia Levey


ISBN: 978-1-59578-856-6
Available In: E-Book*
Word Count: 36600
Genre: Erotica*
Special Content: Some Light BDSM
Source And Purchase: Liquid Silver Books (link to purchase HERE)
Age: Adult 18+*


*I added e-book, genre, and age restriction. The e-book, genre, and age restriction was not provided by Liquid Silver Books.

Blurb:


Enforcer Makhi didn’t expect to fall for a woman. However, one look at the new female in need of defending brings out the dead emotions of his incubus. Be it the fates will to bless him as her counterpart, he plans to teach her the fine art of self-control and satisfy her on every level imaginable.

Kamaria Valentin is scared for her life. Blackouts, strange cravings for violence and blood have plagued her for the last two years. Add hot sex dreams with a nameless face and she’s one hot mess. Ready to break, the need for answers pushes her to free herself from the prison holding her a drugged captive.

Caedon Bolton searches for the lost. Deities looking for home, for sanctuary. One night a vulnerable soul screams out to him in her dreams, he must find her and save her from the brink of death. Once he has Kama in his arms, Caedon realizes only he can give her the emotional support she craves.

Mahalia has written one HOT story. Not only is there some HOT action and a ménage à trois going on, but there is also at the heart of this story, a broken young woman who must find the courage to drag herself out of her fear filled nightmare  and trust that the two men who have sworn to protect her will not betray her. She must accept the fact that she is not crazy nor alone and start to realize that who she is, is a rare mix of succubus and hell kitten who is worthy of receiving and giving love without repercussions. What I also enjoyed about Makhi was that I got to revisit Demonic Persuasion (a club in Demonic Persuasion (Prophesies Implied Trilogy Book #1) in a sense. Makhi, Kama, and Caedon make for a dynamic threesome. They each have qualities that bring out the best in the others. Mahalia never stops impressing me with her ability to tap into and infuse such strong emotions  like fear and love and make you truly feel them as if they were your own emotions. On a scale from 1-10 I give Makhi a 10 and look forward to book #2 in the series, as well as, book #2 in her Demonic Persuasion (Prophesies Implied Trilogy).

Review Of Catch Me, Keep Me By Ava Shawcross



Catch Me, Keep Me By Ava Shawcross


ISBN: 978-1-60592-264-5
Available In: E-Book
Story Type: Short Story*
Genre: Erotica
Special Content: BDSM
Source And Purchase: Noble Romance.Com (link to purchase HERE)
Age: Adult 18+*

*I added the age restriction and story type. The age restriction and story type was not provided by Noble Romance.Com.

Blurb:

Nadia and Finn have been separated for two years, and it's time to finally call it quits.

But before the divorce can be finalized, Finn steals an old journal that reveals Nadia’s
dark, secret fantasy of being disciplined by her husband. 

Finn hatches a plan to bring her back to him . . . but he hasn’t exactly been honest with Nadia either. He is not the mild mannered business consultant Nadia thinks: he is an operative hunting a war criminal, who is now bent on revenge.

To keep Nadia safe, he takes her to a secret hideaway where secrets are revealed and 
husband and wife fall under a sensual spell of erotic temptations, a domestic carnal game that may just turn into a lifetime of passion.

I am an avid fan of romance with an added element of danger. I also enjoy a story were a couple who you know love each other and just aren't together get a second chance at love. Ava spins a very HOT EROTIC tale with Catch Me, Keep Me. At first glance Nadia and Finn seem like a typical feuding couple in the middle of a divorce. Soon we realize that this couple really does love each other but by some strange twist of fate have drifted apart and, therefore, stopped working on their marriage. Yes, I understand that there is supposed to be a sub plot about Finn being in the CIA and being stalked by an assassin of sorts but the crux of the story, in my opinion, is the marriage of Finn and Nadia. Even though they seem bitter and unfeeling towards each other, the reality is, that they are actually deeply in love with no way to let their inner wants and desires shine through. Catch Me, Keep me was an enjoyable short story. On a scale from 1-10 I give it an 8 but only because some of the words Ava used to describe things during the sex scenes, for me personalty were a little crude/blunt. I just felt those words could have been replace with different ones and it would have still gotten the same feelings across. But again, as I said, that is just my personal feelings. They, in no way, took away from what Ava was trying to tell me in this story and that is true love really does conquer all. You need to believe in the love you have and trust it can survive your wants and needs. If you are looking for a short story with some HOT and Steamy action Catch Me, Keep Me is a story you should  pick up.
