Splendid Isolation by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



A popular trend is to get back to nature. Organically grown food and self-sustaining homesteads are all the range, until a city slicker tries their hand at it. Then said city slicker is wondering what on earth he got himself into. Wylie is a guy who radically changes his direction after an asshat ex-lover does a hostile takeover of his company and forces him out. Wylie is the nice guy who believes in working hard and letting others take his accolades. He also seems to believe the best in people. How does this person even exist in life? He needs a protector and this is where Everett comes in.

Wylie and Everett start off on the wrong foot. Both have baggage which causes them to have a communication failure. It is cringe worthy watching the two of them put their foot in their mouth. Their second impression of each other is c…

Happy Spank Patrick’s Day by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



It is always a toss-up if a kinky party will be filled with fun times, sad memories or tragic events. Changing it up is nice because it shows the realities of kinky parties. It isn't perfect. Not everyone is skinny and model material. Whilst it may get erotically orgy like, it doesn't always happen this way. The private parties are more for people who enjoy being with each other to connect. It is kind of like a potluck where a group of friends get together and spend time making great memories. This potluck just happens to be x-rated.

In the latest party, Cali, Max and Sean are the hosts. Before the party can even get started, they learn one of their close friends experiences a tragedy. Yes, there is a death and I am going to avoid giving a spoiler. Suffice to say, it hits many of them…

Review: Claiming Eden

Claiming Eden by Kele Moon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was one I demanded so loudly of Ms. Moon to write. Write it she did, after the issues she had to overcome with her publisher. As soon as it came out, I bought. But I did not read it. I held it and kept looking at it, but not daring to open it. Why? Because I built the story so much in my head, I was afraid I would be disappointed. In someways, I was a bit disappointed. Yet in other ways, this was a lovely closure to a story that was a long time coming. Even though this book is number 3 in the series, it can be read out of order. In fact, the 1st book in this series is probably best read last.

I cried in this book. I seem to be reading books that make me tear up. Otherwise it could be early onset menopause, who knows? This is the Danny who is still in transition. This is the Danny who does not know if he can keep his best friend, Paul safe. Paul's masochist tendencies are too extreme and dangerous. I hated Paul's fam…

Review: The Billionaire's Intern

The Billionaire's Intern by Jackie Ashenden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Billionaire alpha male romances have been taking the erotica world by storm for the past couple of years. One would think I would be jaded by now. Whilst this may be true, Ms. Ashenden happens to pull me out of my jaded funk with her Billionaire Fairy Tale series. This one caught me off guard and I really enjoyed it.

In this latest novel, it features Lorenzo De Santis, the half brother of Nero in the second book in this series. This book can be read as a standalone. Lorenzo and Nero not only share a father, they share their hatred for their father. Determined to bring down the man, the two team up to figure out how their father is stealing so much money from their own company. Their ruthless father did not get to where he is by being a fool. He has his own plans in how to find out about Lorenzo's plans. Their father's secret (or not so secret) weapon is Kira Constantin. Kira is the daughter of Lorenzo'…

Review: Church

Church by Michelle Hughes
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Some people are just a-holes from birth. Sebastian Church is one who was nurtured into being a ruthless son of a bitch. His past colours his view of people. Any type of leniency with the belief that people are inherently good is not within his mindset. He believes the worst in people and unfortunately he is proven more right than wrong. This is, until he meets Ashley.

Ashley is a naive young thing who wants to make it big in New York. She graduated from a no-name school but thinks she can find a job running with the big boys. In my jaded age, I scoff at Ashley's optimism and laugh at her naivety. She does find a job with Sebastian through her "bestie". I can't remember bestie's name, but suffice to say, he should be called cowering asshat. He is caught embezzling from Church and to save himself, he sells Ashley to Church as a sex slave. What a great friend.

So there are two thoughts of this plot. For some, this…
