Review/Giveaway ~ Alec by L.A. Casey

Click on the banner above to view the tour schedule

This series has quickly become one of my favourite reads! The Slater boys are hilarious and their Irish gals are just as amusing! You should get onto this series too, you won't regret it.

Title: Alec
Author: L.A. Casey
Series: Slater Brothers #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: August 17th 2014

Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority…or so she thinks.

Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.

She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah’s wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.

What he doesn’t plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.

Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.

I have just loved reading about the Slater brothers and the Irish girls that capture their hearts. All the stories I have read so far are quite amusing and the banter between all the characters cracks me up. Alec and Keela were just as entertaining as well and their story was a pretty entertaining ride.

Mr. X
This was a dark but sizzling read and I really enjoyed meeting Mr. X!!

I raise my head to her eyelevel and lean in, licking my lip. Her eyes follow my tongue desperately. I wait, tentatively moving closer and closer, until my lips are on top of hers. My kiss is greedy, because I need to taste her. Her mouth is open, ready to receive me. Not long ago she refused to give me what was mine, but now … now she is ready. She lets my tongue in as I probe her mouth with eagerness. I lick the roof of her mouth and kiss her harder, my cock growing equally as hard.

Review/Giveaway ~ Fractured Lines by Jen McLaughlin

Fractured Lines (Out of Line, #4)Title: Fractured Lines
Author: Jen McLaughlin
Series: Out of Line #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: October 14th 2014

The lines we once crossed so easily have widened and torn us apart . . .

Once upon a time I thought Finn and I would live happily ever after, but real life doesn't always have a happy ending. He's testing my trust, and I'm losing faith in the man I thought I'd spend the rest of my life with, and there’s nothing I do can stop it. He’s the one I trusted to keep me safe, but now he’s the source of my greatest pain . . .

Forgiveness is fragile, and some fractures never fully heal . . .

One mistake—a slip in a moment of weakness—might cost me everything I've worked so hard for. The thing about trust is that it's a lot easier to lose than it is to build. Just as I'm about to give up and surrender to the demons from my past, an unexpected threat reminds me what I'm best at: protecting the woman I love. Whether or not she wants me, I will fight for Carrie and our daughter, and I will keep them safe—no matter the cost.

Even if I have to put my life and my heart on the line.

I have been a fan of the Out of Line series from the beginning and I really enjoyed this continuation of Carrie and Finn's story. I often contemplate whether or not characters get their HEA, and in this case they did, until and accident bought back demons from both of their pasts.

Waiting On Wednesday # 111 – Archangel's Shadows & Addicted After All

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

Archangel's Shadows
Archangel's Shadows (Guild Hunter, #7)
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #7
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Expected Publication: October 28th 2014

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s sensual and painfully beautiful Guild Hunter world in her new novel of sacrifice, loyalty, and the choices of love that can shatter the heart.

In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.

This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…

Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

Fool's Assassin (The Fitz and The Fool Trilogy, #1)
It is always exciting to be back in Robin Hobb's worlds! Here is a sweet moment between Fitz (Tom) and Molly.

Her scent reached me and I suddenly said, “Whenever I smell you, I always want to kiss you.” 
She stared at me in astonishment, laughed, and then said sadly, “Of late, I wondered if you even wanted to be near me at all anymore. Old and wrinkly, and now you think me mad …” 
I gathered her close before she could say more. I kissed her, the top of her head, the side of her face, and then her mouth. “I will always want to kiss you,” I said into her hair.

My sister introduced me to the Farseer series a few years ago. Since that first introduction, I have devoured all the books that related to this world because I just loved the characters that Robin Hobb created and the story lines were always captivating. So when I saw that Fool’s Assassin was coming out, I knew I had to get it and immerse myself back into the world… and what a ride it was! I got to see not only Fitz, but a lot of other favourite characters as well. There were ups and downs, and plenty of twists to keep your head spinning! It was an amazing journey that had me on the edge of my seat at the end!

I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
Hey guys! This week has been a busy one for us. We took the kids out of school and travelled a bit of Australia. We drove from Victoria to New South Wales to take the kids to the Taronga Park Zoo near Dubbo. We spent a few days in the area before heading to Sydney for a few days and to see the monster trucks. I will have some picks to share next week.

Blogging… not much to report. Haven’t been around much, but will try and catch up as soon as we return!
