The Sensual Journey of a Young Woman Falling Madly in Love with The Girl of her Dreams.
Claire is a young woman who only accepted her sexuality following an enlightening trip to India. Soon after, she falls head over heels in love with a gorgeous girl, Lana, a woman she meets only by pure chance during a captivating encounter between flights within Vienna’s Airport terminal. This love seemed far from being reciprocated and rather hopeless. Or was it?
Lana meets Claire whilst going from Slovenia on route to the US making plans for her perfect married life. This encounter reveals the essence of who she is within. She discovers a new side to herself. She becomes torn between two worlds and must decide. Whatever her decision, there will be consequences. She can suppress her feelings and memories during the day. Can she control them in her dreams? 
Will her dreams be strong enough to make Lana follow her heart?
Reverie Girl by Nico J. Genes (The Reverie, #2)

Reverie Girl (The reverie, #2)Their eyes met, they spent three hours in rapt conversation and then they parted in Vienna’s airport. Lana was on her way to Washington to marry her American fiancĂ©. Claire had finally understood and accepted her sexuality and she knew that Lana was her one true love. Lana didn’t understand why the pretty Slovenian woman had captured her interest so completely.

This is the continuation of their story of forbidden love, conflicting emotions, commitments and fear of the unknown. Told in the voices and viewpoints of both Claire and Lana, this heart wrenching love story spans countries, time and even miscarriages as Lana leaves Claire behind to start her new life in America.

As Lana must decide between two worlds, one with a lesbian lover and one with her husband. Is Claire a fling? Something different, therefore exciting or is she the other half of Lana’s soul? Has Lana told too many lies, given too many excuses to expect Claire to wait for her to finally choose?

They say our dreams help us work through conflicts...what are Lana's dreams telling her?

Nico Genes’s REVERIE GIRL is a tumultuous, soul-searching tale of choices and consequences with no guarantee of a happy ending. Well written, dark and filled with a heavy atmosphere of unrest, this showcases the growth of an author writing in a second language and nailing the emotional turmoil of these characters.

The Carmichaels: Complete Series (The Carmichaels #1-5)
by Charlotte Penn Clark 

The Carmichaels: Complete Series (The Carmichaels #1-5)It isn’t that author Charlotte Penn Clark cannot write romance. It isn’t that she cannot write very good at drama, pain, angst or turmoil. I think, for me, she tried to write it all in each book of her series encapsulated in a novella length.

This series covers love, lust and loss as well as growth, for these five sister characters. It tells us of their closeness and willingness to come together in times of strife. Sitting down to read the entire series at once could be the wisest move if you're looking for some substance beyond the sex as each book shares something of all of the sisters, even as it focuses on one sister as the main character and maybe that was the problem.

THE CARMICHAEL SERIES by Charlotte Penn Clark has all of the ingredients to tell five separate stories, but it feels as if the manuscripts were shuffled together like a deck of cards and bits and pieces of another novella showed up out of place. What had definite five-star potential became jarring reading that robbed each book of that feeling of flow or sense of depth.

I wanted to like this series, I did like many characters, but I also want to dive into the deep end of the reading pool when I plan my reading escapes, and this didn’t get past my knees.

EXCERPT:
[Note: Vironica Mason is her real name; Wendy is her White Room name.]
“Stand for me, Wendy,” he commanded. Her sundress dropped to the ground and Asher took in the shape and delicate curves of her body as she stood before him, completely bare except for her long double strand of pearls. “My God, you are beautiful.”
Vironica stepped out of her sundress and kicked it gently to the side. She ran her hands down her chest, over her pert breasts, and to her stomach. It was slightly curved from the birth of her daughter, but she was trim, fit for her age. Her legs were long, and made to look longer in her high-heeled wedge sandals with complicated straps running up her taut calf muscles.
“Dear God, please leave those on,” Asher said, pulling her close. “Those, the pearls, and that fucking sexy braid are going to give way to many fantasies long after today,” he growled.
Her lips curved into a knowing smile. “A woman has to have a secret weapon or two,” she murmured. “But one of us is overdressed,” she said, wetting her mouth with her soft pink tongue as it slid over her full lips.
She tugged at Asher’s baby blue tie, loosening it and sliding it out from under the starched white collar of his button-up shirt. “Don’t you look adorable in your derby finest,” she said, eyeing his frame appreciatively. “You come from good stock.”
She smoothed her fingers up and down his biceps after she dropped his tie to the sofa. He leaned over to pick it up. “Not so fast, Wendy. I have something in mind for this.”
She rubbed her naked body against him and shivered. “Tell me what you want to do with it,” she whispered before finding his mouth. She bit playfully at his lower lip, her hands trailing up the hard muscles that lay beneath his crisp white dress shirt.
He grabbed both of her wrists and held them in one of his large hands. “First,” he said slowly, wrapping the tie around her wrists and securing them, “I am going to tie this so your hands are bound.” He yanked the tie to tighten the knot he’d formed. Her wrists weren’t going anywhere. “Then, I’m going to pick you up, bring you to the bed, and have my dirty way with you. Do you understand me, Mrs. Mason?”

Alexandrea Weis & Lucas Astor
(A Magnus Blackwell Novel #2)
Published by: Vesuvian Books
Publication date: April 17th 2018
Genres: Adult, Supernatural
Magnus Blackwell’s past is about to catch up with him.
An evil force has seized New Orleans. Pestilence, suffering, and darkness cloak the city. The citizens are scared and need their mambo to guide them, but Lexie Arden can’t help anyone. A diabolical presence has taken Lexie’s power and severed her ties with the other side.
Magnus Blackwell is fighting demons of his own. Torn between his devotion to Lexie and a spirit from his past, Magnus’s loyalty is put to the test. He must revisit his sins to uncover the key to the hatred ripping the city apart. If he doesn’t, Lexie’s reign as mambo will end.
Their search for answers leads them deep into the darker realms of voodoo—until a desperate Lexie does the unthinkable, and Magnus can do nothing to spare her from her fate.
EXCERPT:
Will went to the doors leading to the balcony. “Do you hear that?”
Lexie got up from the sofa, and as soon as she came up to him, a low buzzing came through their back door. “What is it?”
Will hooked her waist. “Get behind me.”
“Why?”
“Just do it, Lexie!”
She curled into his back with her hands on his shoulders, looking around the nape of his neck while he reached for the door handle.
The buzzing got much louder when he cracked the door.
Her breath coming in quick gasps, she stared out into the night.
A wave of black shot up from the courtyard as if alerted by the light escaping from their door. The humming became deafening. Her eyes adjusted to the dark, and then Lexie became paralyzed with terror.
Flies, thousands of them, swarmed like a flock of birds, dipping and rising with a single mind. While poised over the pond, their mass obscured the floodlights from the adjacent buildings.
Aghast, Lexie’s nails dug into Will as the swarm pulled into a giant ball. A black wave flowed over the mass, bending and twisting in different directions, forming a shape.
“Have you ever seen flies do that?” Will mumbled.
Never taking her eyes off the object, she whispered back, “No. Never.”
Right after Lexie spoke, the ball suddenly contracted into a tight, flat orb.
She could not see the flies anymore, but their buzzing remained. Depressions sank into the orb; two eyes, a dip where the nose should be, and a thin line for the mouth.
The face reminded Lexie of a large black skull.
The skull then exploded, and the flies flew off in every direction.
“Holy shit!” Will slammed the doors and set the bolt. “What the hell was that?”
Lexie went around him to the window and peeked outside.
The only things hovering above the pond were a few bright beams from a neighbor’s spotlight. The flies had disappeared.
She stepped back, trembling. “It’s a warning.”
“Any idea who’s sending it?”
She rubbed his back, eager to feel his warmth. “No, but I’m sure I will find out soon enough.”
“Are you all right?” Magnus arrived in her living room. “I came as soon as I felt the black presence nearby.”
“We’re fine.” She looked up. “Just spooked.”
“Who are you talking …?” Will’s voice faded. “Oh my God. Is that …?”
Lexie held her breath as Will stared openmouthed at Magnus. “Can you see him?”
Will closed his mouth and cleared his throat. “Oh yeah.”
She rubbed her head, fighting the tension headache coming on. “This is all I need.”
“Others have seen me, why not him?” Magnus maneuvered closer. “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Will.”
Will’s cheeks blanched, but he managed a courteous nod.
“Yeah, it’s nice to know you’re real.”
Magnus smugly grinned. “I’ve always been real.”
A long lapse of silence followed as each of the men—well, man and ghost—sized the other up.
Since she’d first met Magnus, Lexie longed for Will to see him, to know he existed. Her wish finally granted, she questioned if seeing Magnus was good for her husband. Will had stayed on the fringe of her world, opting to support her in any way he could, but leaving her to run her responsibilities without his assistance. She’d preferred things that way, seeking guidance from Titu instead of Will. He had his architecture firm and she her shop. Could they go back to their comfortable existence, or had the tide turned?
“Why is this happening?” Will staggered backward. “Why am I seeing him?”

Series: The Carmichaels - Book 3
Publisher: Pen and Pencil Press (April 1, 2016)
Publication Date: April 1, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance - NA
Print Length: 192 pages
Available from: Amazon
After being attacked by a stalker, Valerie Carmichael decides to give up modeling. But what will she do instead? While she tries to put her life back together she leans on the friendship of Adam Talbot, the doctor who treated her in the emergency room. Their friendship starts to develop into something stronger, but Valerie is just starting the emotional journey to feel safe again.
Adam knows he shouldn’t pursue Valerie. She was his patient and now she needs a friend. When she and her sisters face another crisis he just wants to be there for her, but it only draws them closer together.
This is Book 3 of a series on the five Carmichael sisters. It is a standalone novella that takes place five years after Book 1 so there will be spoilers! It contains sex scenes only intended for readers over 18
Valerie by Charlotte Penn Clark (The Carmichaels, #3)

Valerie (The Carmichaels, #3)Like the other Carmichael sister novellas, Valerie’s story is about finding love, accepting the unfair events in life and learning to trust and move forward. A model, Valerie was attacked and her face slashed. It was the doctor who treated her in the emergency room who would become a friend and a shoulder to lean on.

Valerie isn’t the only one with a past, and her budding relationship with Adam begins as a simmering heat. It will take another Carmichael family crisis to finally bring these two together.

Charlotte Penn Clark’s VALERIE is filled with all of the angst and turmoil of previous books in the series, but there is a troubled sweetness to this couple and in Valerie that feels more endearing than her sisters' stories so far.

Even just a few more pages would have fleshed out Valerie's story.

The Ghost by Jessica Gadziala (Professionals, #2)

The Ghost
by Jessica Gadziala

My rating: 5 stars

Series: Professionals - Book 2
Publication Date: April 18, 2018
Publisher: Jessica Gadziala
Genre: Erotic Suspense
Available from: Amazon

Sloane has everything she thought she ever wanted- a great career, a great apartment, great clothes, a life she had worked hard for.

Until one night, one chance encounter, one decision that changed everything.

With no options left, she enlists the help of Quinton Baird & Associates, who promptly inform her that she has to leave it all - the career, the apartment, the life she had worked so hard to build for herself - behind.

If all that wasn’t enough, her entire future - and life in general - was in the hands of a man whose coworkers called ‘The Ghost.’ Because that was what he did; he ghosted people, hid them, gave them new lives, made them impossible to find.

With no other choice, she agrees to his terms, climbs in a car with him, and travels almost clear across the country toward her new life. But the long hours on the road - and even longer hours in cabins and hotel rooms - together start to show her things. Like how unhappy she had actually been, how hollow her life was, how much she had denied herself in the name of superficial success.

And maybe, just maybe, how much she was starting to see how wrong first impressions can be, and how much a person can begin to mean to you when you decided to let them in…

The Ghost by Jessica Gadziala (Professionals, #2)

The Ghost (Professionals, #2)Prepare to meet the ultimate badboy/good man. This is the kind of ghost story that will melt the hearts of every soul who reads it. NO, Jessica Gadziala hasn’t gone soft on us, her anti-heroes haven’t lost any of their edge or their honor or their heart.

Gunner is THE GHOST because he is good at what he does. He makes people disappear for their own good, but when the beautiful, successful, yet cold, Sloane with-the-hyphenated-last-name enters the offices of Quinton Baird & Associates, her life and her safety becomes Gunner’s responsibility. Too bad he isn’t too sure she is worthy of his talents, but her money is good and she paid a lot to lose all she has worked for. Now Gunner will deliver her to a new life, a new beginning and wash his hands of ever knowing her.

What Gunner wasn’t expecting from the Ice Queen was a woman terrified of life, a product of an upbringing that left her scarred and needing to prove to the world and herself that she is more than she was given credit for. Maybe they have more in common than meets the eye.
Sometimes you CAN get a second chance to make a good impression…and sometimes love finds you when you least expect it.

Jessica Gadziala has raised the bar one more time! She is known for her grit, her dark romance and no holds barred style of writing. NO, she definitely has not gone soft, her writing has grown, her characters are even more brilliantly developed and they are swoon-worthy, wrapped in a shell of armor, just waiting for the right someone to break that shell and give them a reason to believe in love and trust.

There is nothing more magical than a hero with a heart, willing to give it away or a heroine whose damaged past can be soothed by a good man to believe in. Guess that makes Jessica Gadziala a magician with her words!

My rating: 5 stars

Series: The Kennedy Boys - Book 6
Publication Date: April 30, 2018
Publisher: Siobhan Davis
Genre: NA Romantic Saga
Print Length: 229 pages
Available from: Amazon
A new forbidden romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Standalone with an HEA and no cliffhanger. 

Kaden 

The woman I love will never be mine because she already belongs to another.

I’ve tried everything to forget her, but it’s impossible when she occupies a starring role in my dreams. My eyes are glued to her shapely curves whenever I see her around campus, and it doesn’t help that she looks as miserable as I feel.

I wonder if she misses me as much as I miss her.

Short of putting a bullet through the skull of that gangster she’s married to, I’m stuck in a hellhole of my own making. 

Until fate intervenes, setting us on a collision course we can’t avoid.

Evelina 

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies. 

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe. 

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with another man, I won’t be the only one in danger.

While you don't need to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy Seducing Kaden, it is highly recommended. This book is a contemporary new adult romance, and it is only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content, sexual situations, and language.

This story includes details of an extramarital affair, so if you don’t like cheating or controversial storylines, then this book isn’t for you.

Seducing Kaden by Siobhan Davis (The Kennedy Boys, #6)

Seducing Kaden (The Kennedy Boys, #6)The queen of heartbreak and desire has topped herself, AGAIN with SEDUCING KADEN. You think Siobhan Davis couldn’t possibly top her angst and drama filled The Kennedy Boys series so far? Think again! Not only are we going to witness another tumultuous romance, this one has the potential to be deadly for Kaden, but he wants Evelina, as much as she wants him and they are both willing to risk everything to be together.

Get ready to get intimidate with the hearts, souls and minds of these two characters, as well as their lives. Imagine a love that is forbidden, imagine it lasting more than a month or two, for it to be more than a tantalizing fling. We are going to be part of this affair for years and every year, it is going to wrench at your heart and your sensibilities and your moral compass, because forbidden is forbidden.

Brutal and raw, this time out, Siobhan Davis has nailed what real love is, even if it is impossible. Painful to read, excruciating to imagine living, Kaden and Evelina’s story is nothing short of powerful reading that holds twists, passion and some of the ugliest scenes imaginable.

And oh, the heat, it sizzles through Ms. Davis’s words. So many taboos, so much anguish, no matter what your feelings are about the controversial topics in SEDUCING KADEN, you cannot deny the love that cements two souls and binds them together.

For now, I have to put that behind me and focus on finding the little boy that needs rescuing from the deadliest drug lord Southern California has ever seen.
I never imagined there was anything that would make me cross that thin blue line. But despair and hate and sorrow can blur one’s vision so much that the line doesn’t exist anymore. I didn’t ask for this war, but I do plan on ending it—ending him.

Book Excerpts
Excerpt 1 

Jess and I were going to have a coke while we watched TV. I went to get a couple of cans, but we were down to the last one. I gave it to Jess. She pulled the tab off, took a few sips, looked at me speculatively, then leaned over and kissed me. I could feel the cool stickiness of the coke slide down my chin. She licked it up.
I’m not slow, I took the can off her, touched the rim against her bottom lip and she parted her lips a fraction. When I tipped the can a little of the coke went into her mouth and the rest trickled down her neck. I leaned forward and followed the cool, sticky trail with my tongue lapping it up, finishing at the hollow between her breasts.
I hadn’t got it all and a small brown stain spread over the little white top thing she was wearing. I moved back up to her lips and watched the half smile appear. She took the can of coke off me and had a sip again. Holding my gaze she made a dribble with her tongue from the corner of my mouth to my shoulder blade then moved her lips over the trail back to mine.
Then I should have taken my turn, but I turned out the light. I figured it wasn’t the type of game that needed a lot of light. The flickering from the television did a pretty good job of showing us what we needed to see.
This time I held the can, studying her, and planning where the next trail would start. I tipped a trickle onto her shoulder and let it run down her arm and then followed with my mouth to her fingers. She drew in a breath, then she lifted my T-shirt over my head and had another sip of coke. She let it dribble from the hollow at the base of my throat to the top of my jeans and followed it with her tongue. I could feel my stomach muscles tightening.
I pulled away from her, watched her face as I pushedthe straps off her shoulders, and eased the top down to her waist, so her nipples stared at me like two eyes. A trickle of coke slid down her back from her shoulder to the base of her spine. I turned her around and followed the coke with my mouth tasting her skin.
Then it was her turn.
Then mine.
Then hers.
Then suddenly we’re just a tangle of arms and legs on the floor all enthusiasm and energy.
We made one hell of a mess.
But fuck it was fun.

You know that saying “I get by with a little help from my friends?”
Well, that’s not me.
I don’t take help. Not from anyone. At least I didn’t, until I was backed into a corner. With no choice.
And when help came my way in the form of several handsome guys, I wasn’t sure if my situation had gone from bad to worse.
Or if it was just what I needed—and what I’d actually needed all along.
EXCERPT:
Two pair of lips met either side of my neck, but I squirmed away from their temptation just as a hand slithered over my silk-covered ass and pinched me.
But my anxiety slipped out the door the moment I saw him. He entered the coffee shop, a tall drink of water with an expensive, perfectly fitting suit. He turned heads as he moved like a strong, graceful athlete. What a catch he was. Why had it taken me so long to realize that?
I came to, tucked under a down comforter. For a quick moment I wasn’t sure where I was, but the moonlight coming in the bedroom windows told me I wasn’t at home. I looked around, my heart startled into a panicky rush.
And while I was hyperaware that I was about to fuck Brade, it was really as though I were making love to each guy in the room.
And, there was Von, who so expertly tormented me with his decadent attentions. I pushed my hips back toward him to give more of myself, and he growled his appreciation. His thumbs opened me and next thing I knew, his tongue was buried to the hilt. If my mouth hadn’t been full of Cato’s cock, I would have screamed loudly enough for the neighbors and the people in the building next door to hear, too.
Two hands came from behind to grasp my breasts, and those in front of me pulled me closer by grabbing the cheeks of my ass. I was sandwiched nice and tight between two hot as hell men. While the mouth of one bruised my lips, those of the other ravaged my neck. I figured I’d be covered with marks the next day, but that’s what cover-up was for, right?
Now behind me, he began massaging the most amazing-smelling shampoo into my hair. He lathered it up on my scalp like a pro, and somehow knew to let just a little of it dribble down to the long ends. Maybe he’d washed some other woman’s hair in his past? I didn’t know, and I certainly didn’t care.
“I’ve wanted to touch you since the first day I met you. Actually, I wanted to do more than that. A lot more,” he whispered.
He walked up behind me, his hands falling on my shoulders. He pushed aside my hair, his lips traveling down my neck. His touch was soft but strong at the same time, leaving a trail of fire on my skin and a throbbing between my legs. I had to feel his lips again on mine, and spun around to face him.
I leaned toward him and he tilted back for a split second, not something a girl wants to see when she’s trying to be gutsy. While I tried to figure out what to do, he must have screwed up his own courage, because the next moment I was enjoying his mouth on my lips.
At first, his kiss was soft, but the second I invited him in with my parted lips, he pressed against mine with a passion that took my breath away. Like he was dying of thirst and I was his glass of water.
“They have no idea we’re standing right here. They have no idea how turned on you are. And they have no idea I’m about to unzip the back of your dress.”
“If you really want to move up in the firm…”
She waited for me to respond, so I nodded furiously.
“You need to have a husband.”
