All Work and No Play (Serendipity Book 2) Coleen Kwan (Author) **I received this book in exchange for an honest review.** *Possible Spoilers* Anna Reynolds is working her way up in the company. She is working on an IT project with a very important deadline. She has help with this project from a consultant, named Giles St Clair. Anna is always works long hours, but lately Giles is working with her. Giles St Clair is in Australia for work and to get some breathing space with his family. He is a handsome, athletic and wealthy man with sky blue eyes, which are always watching Anna. Everything he does seem annoy Anna, like the way he talks or how attractive he is. One day while they are working together, Anna goes into the stationery cupboard (closet) to release some stress / frustration. Giles goes to investigate after hearing Anna yelling, and they both get trapped in the closet. Things heat up very quickly. They both are attracted to each other, but Anna has a strict policy of not having an affair with anyone she works with. Someone comes and lets them out before anything could happen. Later, Giles and Anna decide to spend one and only one night together. The next day they are act as if nothing happened between them. There were some quotes in this book that I loved, like; “I’m very human, Anna.” “Here, see for yourself.” Yum is all I’m thinking. “You’re gorgeous.” “I’m sweaty and smelly and a total mess.” “”Like I said, gorgeous.” I’m thinking where is that man, and can he say that to me everyday?! This is the second book in the series, but each book seems to be a stand alone. This is my first book by this author, but it will not be my last. I really enjoy this story. I ran though many emotions even though it is a novella (laughter, sadness, joy). 4 1/2 Stars
Russian Enforcer’s Reluctant Bride (Russian Enforcers Book 1) Nic Saint (Author) This is a dark romance with a HEA. There is suspense and great sexual tension between the main characters. There are some delicious sex scenes between them. Also there is violence. It is a fast past story, that kept me engaged for the first page to the last. I feel that I experienced all of Joanna and Vitaly’s emotions throughout the story. I cried, laughed, was nervous, scared, worried, elated and so many more. ***Possible Spoilers ahead*** Joanna Royale is on the verge of starting her life over after her ex-husband left her. Joanna meets Vitaly Loganov in the woods after saving the life of a young woman. Joanna finds out that the woman is the daughter of a Russian Mobster, named Yury. Vitaly is Yury’s main enforcer. On the eve before Joanna is set leave town, her house and life are invaded by the Russian Mob. The men say that they are looking for her ex-husband, who owes them money. Joanna tells them that she doesn’t know where her ex is and has no money. Vitaly is grateful to Joanna for her help in the woods and wants to save Joanna from Yury. Vitaly tells Joanna that the only way to protect her is for them to get married. Joanna rejects Vitaly’s offer, because she feels that she doesn’t need a man or protection. Later another one of Yury’s enforcers comes after her, Joanna tells him that she is Vitaly’s. When Vitaly and Joanna are back together, they discuss their story in order to fool Yury into believing that they are really a couple. Vitaly is a domineering alpha male, who has done bad things (hurt and killed people). He does work for a Russian Mobster. Vitaly also has a good side, maybe even sweet side. He shows that by how he wants to take care / protect Joanna and eventually loves her. His good side is evident in the fact that the other men respect him, not fear Vitaly. Joanna is strong and independent. She has a good sense of right and wrong. Joanna stands up for what she believes in and will try to protect those in need. As the story goes on, we discover how truly crazy Yury is. Yury is a sadistic killer. He seems to kill for the fun of it. He wants to get rid of Joanna, so Vitaly get back in line so to speak. Yury has issues with women. His sanity is slowly slipping, and no one is safe. Joanna finds out that Yury is not really after her ex, but trying get to her father, the mayor. After Yury and his some of his men go after Joanna and Vitaly, they try to escape over the wall. Vitaly is shot, and Joanna refused to leave him. They admit their love for each other. With help from some of men, they make it over the wall and stay with Vitaly’s friend. Eventually, Vitaly feels that he needs to figure out a way to get Joanna safely away from Yury. He goes to find a way to do just that. There are twists and turns that I didn’t expect. The story didn’t end how I might have expected it to. My only complaint was that I wanted it to be longer. I hope that the next story in the series updates us on their story. I highly recommend this book.

The Seduction Factor: Billionaire Erotica Romance (The Seduction Factor Series Book 1) Scarlett Avery (Author)
This is a story about the ultimate weekend hookup between Ciara and Nikolaj. Ciara is in Toronto on business, when she meets Nikolaj. He is a dirty talking billionaire who can’t resist a dare / bet. Ciara is a strong woman who knows what she wants and doesn’t want from men. She knows that she don’t want to get serious with anyone. Ciara and Nikolaj have a lot in common. He hits on Ciara when he meets her. They go dancing and later find an unlock door for Nikolaj to start working on his dare (to heat things up). These two have a lot in common, a lot of the same likes and dislikes, and rules. Ciara was into casual encounters and never sleeping over with one.
The chemistry between Ciara and Nikolaj is out of this world. The sex scenes are hot, scrumptious and steamy. Nikolaj is a hot alpha with a sense of humor. He likes to be a little bit dominate and to give a woman multiple orgasms. Ciara has a kinky side as well. They seem to be really into each other, but Ciara is scared and won’t show her true feelings. These two are great together. I hope that Ciara comes to her senses and let herself find happiness. Since this is a cliffhanger, I have to wait for the next book in the series to find out. I highly recommend this to anyone to loves a dirty talking alpha male.

Night After Night (Night Riders Motorcycle Club Book 1) Kathryn Thomas (Author) 3 out of 5 stars Story = 4 stars Hotness / sex scenes = 4.5 stars This is a dark, intense read. It is definitely not for everyone. Lauren is a 22 year old woman, who is taking a road trip alone. After she has car trouble, she finds herself a victim of human trafficking. Lauren is placed on an auction block, where 2 bikers are trying to outbid each other for her. Blake wins Lauren in the auction and takes her home with him. Blake is a tattoo and scarred biker. He can be ruthless and will not hesitate to take out his enemies. Blake stops Lauren’s multiple attempts at escape. But Blake also protects her from Eric, another biker who is trying to hurt Lauren. Blake lets her known that he will never let her go. Night After Night is the first in the series. My only complaint is the editing/proofreading. I hate to have to mention it, but it became troublesome at times. This is the reason why my rate is 3 stars. Otherwise I really enjoyed the story and will mostly read the next story to see happens with Lauren and Blake.
Found (Assassin’s Revenge Book One) Tara Crescent (Author) 5 out of 5 Stars! Found (Assassin’s Revenge Book 1) is the 1st installment in a new series. It is a great start as well.

Her entire life revolves around getting revenge on the man/master and his guards. She has already a few of the guards, when the story begins.

This story does end in a cliffhanger. It leaves you wanting to know what is going to happen next. I have already purchased the next story in the series, Bought (Assassin’s Revenge Book 2). I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves erotic romance, suspense and mystery. This is not the first book that I have read by this author, and it will definitely not be my last. I loved the twists and turns of the story. I loved that Marc and Rachel had sizzling chemistry and a hot passion. I really felt for both of the main characters. I wanted to see them grow and find happiness. Call me sappy. I want a HEA for Ellie and Alexander. One of my favorite lines was; “You have to be whole to love.”
