RIPPED by Katy Evans

Click to Pre-Order from Amazon

The fifth book in the New York Times new adult series that began with Real. When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both.

Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie (Rogue), thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he's back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig. But when they're caught by security, and her ex himself is summoned, Pandora is not prepared for the feelings that seeing him again--beautiful and in the flesh--awaken in her. She's also wholly unprepared for the conditions his manager sets in order for her and Melanie to be released; especially since these conditions only allow Melanie to return home, while at the same time, they put Pandora in perilously close contact with her ex again. The torturous physical closeness between them reignites the passion they once shared, and soon no matter how much she wants to hate him, it's clear she's still hung up on him. And worse: he knows it too.

Expected Release Date: December 16, 2014

Here Be Sexist Vampires (The Deep in Your Veins, Bk 1)
Click for Amazon link
Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Svent√© vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like. Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself.

The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared’s co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a willful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Svent√© female.

Warning: This novel contains an iron-willed female vampire with an energy whip, a sexist male vampire who is determined to have her, explicit vampy sex, and a romance story with real bite.

Here Be Sexist Vampires by Suzanne Wright
My Rating 3 out of 5 stars

Not a fan, too much of some things and not enough of the other. I won't continue this series. I did love Feral Sins and From Rags, so I will continue reading books from the author, just not this series.

Obsession (Darkness Falls, Bk 1)

You made me Canute, the foolish man,
Trying to turn back the rolling tide of your dark.
And I drowned.
I drowned.

Overwhelmed by his generosity and charm, how far will she go to save his soul? And when is it too late to turn back?

Obsession (Darkness Falls, Book 1 ) by Ivory Quinn
My Rating 1 out of 5 stars

Gabriel & Noelle....the first few pages had me....and then they lost me. Reasons: 1) Maybe I am not a fan of books being told in 3rd person 2) I did not connect with the couple 3) I didn't really like them as individuals (a little harsh, I know...maybe I just didn't care about them) 4) I felt NO chemistry......NOT EVEN LUST between them. I forced myself to continue reading it, but I am not buying what the author is selling so, at 38% I GIVE UP.

Maybe it's me, I am sill riding the high from my last book, so don't let me deter you. However, I did skip to the end to read the "WTF Moment" everyone was talking about..... I'm still not interested.

By His Desire
Click for Amazon link
Keith Logan has something that Sarah Harper wants, and he's going to use it to get what he wants.


All his life, Keith's money and good looks were enough to charm anyone--except for shy, beautiful Sarah. Back in high school she was the one girl he couldn't have, and the one girl who haunted his dreams. When he sees her again for the first time in ten years, he knows he'll do anything to make her his--even if it's just for one week.

There's only one flaw in his plan. With a woman like Sarah, one week will never be enough.

By His Desire by Kate Grey

He is sexy and controlling. She is shy and insecure. Great short story with hot sex scenes.

Ink Reunited (Montgomery Ink) by Carrie Ann Ryan
Click for Amazon link
From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy ever after for a character whose story was begged to be told.

Sassy Bordeaux is the Midnight Ink receptionist, honorary godmother, best friend to many, and matchmaker expert. In the past two months, she’s watched eight couples fall in love, make mistakes, and find their happy endings. Though she might have had hand in each of those, she’s yet to find the peace she’s desired. When the men from her past come into Midnight Ink, she’s forced to face what she left behind and what could happen if she lets go of her pain and finds a future she deserves.

Rafe Chavez and Ian Steele remember their time with Sassy like it was yesterday, yet have worked hard to move on. Or at least try to. Now they’re both back in New Orleans for the woman they loved and for the connection they shared with each other. It will take more than the usual groveling, pleading and begging for these three to overcome their history, but once they take that step, the streets of New Orleans will never be the same.
