Review: Wow, I really enjoyed The Master a lot more then I thought I would, and I liked it way better then the first book in the Game Maker series.

I think the main reason I liked and enjoyed this book was because it did not get to far into BDSM, than the first book did. And what it did have of BDSM in it, it started out slow and took you step by step ( and as a reader who does not / and is not super comfortable with this). I was able to enjoy and be comfortable while reading this book, without finding it too over whelming.

Catarina was a great character, she had depth, wit, mysterious backstory, and badass independence. Maksimilian was a lot of fun to read when he wasn’t being  a jerk or an ass ( which is a lot of the time) but he is able to make it endearing/ sexy. These two put together in a full plot with lots of interesting points here and there was awesome. It was also good to see the characters from the first book too!

Review of Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood #5) by J.R. Ward

Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood #5)  by J.R. Ward

304027

Review: I wasn’t too sure of this book at first because Vishous kind of freaked me out in the previous books. I know that’s a weird thing to say because there have been other things that could have freaked me out in this series. Anyway, I really loved the beginning and end of this book, the middle not so much. At first I was pulled in right away and the more into the book the more I could put the book down. Which sucks because I do really enjoy this series.
I think the thing about this book that had me putting it down was all the extra detail I really didn’t care/ need to know. Like Vishous’s flashbacks to when he was in the war camp with his father. Yes, I know I’m awful because I didn’t really wan to read these parts. I also get how they help in understanding who Vishous is as a person and also why he is the way he is. I just felt like it did not need to be in the book that much to describe V.
What I really liked about this book was that I finally had some answers about how V feels toward Butch. And what was going on there for a while in the last book. It really bugged me not to know what was clearly happening and I was just to blind to see. I also really loved V’s attitude and humor in this book, very dry but still funny.

Review of The Professional (The Game Maker #1) by Kresley Cole

The Professional (The Game Maker #1)  by Kresley Cole

21412080

Review: Once I started reading the back of this book, I could not put it down. Like not at all. It was so good at the beginning because of the characters and the plot just hooks you. Kresley Cole also has that thing about how all of her writing sucks people in without them knowing its happening till the end. I really mean it, she is just that good.

The detail and description of the places that Natalie talk about, are almost like you can see and hear it all the way she does. Even when its all about the Siberian.

The book gets very steamy very fast, but in a good way. And it will knock you over at how hot the parts are in the book. Some steamy parts were a little out of my comfort zone but otherwise the book was really great. I do wish some things changed at the end of the book to add a little something more to Natalie’s character. But by the end of the book it was all ok.

Precarious (Jokers’ Wrath MC, #1)  by Bella Jewel

Review: I feel as if the summary tricked me into thinking that this would be a good idea to read. It sounded so good, but then wasn’t. I feel so sad, mean book.

Anyway there were some things in the book I was not comfortable with but it did not affect my rating of the book, only bugged me. It was like one thing.

My reasons for the one star review. The main female character was only badass or anything that the guy wanted when he wanted her to be. Because in the beginning of the book I felt like she was different then how she turned out to be, and who she turned out to be was badass all the time. Which is not a bad thing, but in her case yeah… I’m not really sure how it happened but she just turned out phony, it was like the author tried to shove as many personality’s into this one character. And it just throw me for a loop.

Review of Devil’s Game By Joanna Wylde

Devil’s Game (Reapers MC #3)  by Joanna Wylde

18693621

Review: The book covered a lot of what happened in the last one, just from Em’s view point. Which was good, because I guess ALOT went down that we did not know. This book was easier for me to read than the other ones because I could relate in age and thought wise to Em.
But let me tell you Wylde sets you up for a nice guy ( I feel that way) , that Liam ( Hunter) might be. NOPE.
But it is all good by the end of the book. Which was every satisfying in many ways.

Summary: Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies-the Reapers-using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger-a man who isn’t afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn’t afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) by Christina Lauren

Review: This book had me laughing my butt off, before the first chapter was done. Chole and Bennett have some much chemistry between them, I was surprised how they could be in the same room together and not go nuts and tare off each others all the time Wink, Wink. I had a great time reading this book the character development was great and the characters didn’t have to give up what they wanted from life, which was a great plus. Also the characters switched point of views every chapter, so it was great to see the same situation from them and what they were thinking and feeling and what they were going to do next.

Summary: An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate–and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative–completely infuriating–creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules–or outright smash them–if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

Review: Good follow up to Beautiful Bastard, and had nice fluff in it. The book has enough plot and depth to it that it keeps you reading, but by the end you are fine where it leaves you. It also had nice moments when the characters from Beautiful Bastard appeared and had their own input. The only thing that was a little weird was erotica, but that’s to be expected. No erotica is ever smooth or not comfortable to read. Overall the book was a nice filler and I’m looking forward to the rest in the series.

Summary: Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner—and speed—with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara—and the wild photos she lets him take of her—that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private. – Summary from Goodreads.com

Review of Rogue (Real #4) by Katy Evans

Rogue (Real #4) by Katy Evans 17980296

Review: I have waited so long for this book, and I finished it within a couple of hours! I’m so sad its over! In this book we are able to see the deeper side to Melanie other than the shallow side of her we saw throughout Remy and Brooke’s story. Melanie and Greyson’s story is just as intense as the three previous books in the REAL series, but they’re not Brooke and Remy. Which is mostly who you want to see in the book, because they are just so freakin cute! There are some thing in the sexy part of the book that may be a little uncomfortable for some readers to read, but otherwise the plot, characters and intensity were good. The book also teases us with Brooke and Melanie’s other friend, Pandora, who is getting her own book this winter called “Ripped“, which looks very promising.

After years of searching, one night in the rain, the strong and mysterious Greyson King comes to her rescue. He’s bold, and maybe just the lover, friend, and protector she’s been searching for. When they make love, he says her name like it means something. Like she means something—and that’s everything she’s ever wanted.
He disappears for days without a word, and when he’s around, he says he’ll only hurt her. Buy when he’s away, her heart hurts more.

Then Melanie uncovers the dark world he’d been determined to keep hidden, and suspects that their random first meeting might have not been so random after all.

Caught in a free fall of emotions, Melanie has no one to catch her but the man she should be running from…

But what do you do when your Prince Charming has gone Rogue?
