Slipperless (Book #4) by Sloan Storm

 Book 4 in the Slipperless serial is finally here! Absolutely loving this series and the storyline is really heating up now!

Blurb
Battered. Bruised. Broken. Every single day, my troubles worsen…

After nearly losing Gabe, I’ve come to realize just how much he means to me. Yet even though I might want to confess my true feelings to him, doing so would leave me far too vulnerable at a time when I can least afford it.

That’s because devastating news about the Link Protocol and my grandmother are threatening to send my career, and my life, spiraling out of control.

With the demise of my only relative seemingly imminent and Gabe’s unceasing demands weighing on me, I’m not sure how much more I can take.

I’ve never been under such relentless pressure…

What am I going to do?

 
This is the fourth book in a Billionaire Romance series presented in serial format. It is not a standalone. All individual entries are currently free with Kindle Unlimited.

 

 

Review

I’m so impressed with this series so far! At the end of book 3 Gabe had dived into the depths to save Fiona’s bracelet. We were left hanging after he had yet to surface several minutes later leaving a panicked Fiona with no clue what to do. We re-join them on the boat where Gabe turns out to be ok but Fiona is left unsettled. When they return to their room Fiona takes a turn for the worse; the stress getting all too much to bare and she pushes Gabe away.

Fiona is slowly losing her fight to stay afloat and when an urgent email from the lab forces her to travel home, her fears intensify. Now in completely different places Gabe and Fiona draw even further apart. Fiona’s troubles worsen, and just when things seemed all too much, it gets a whole lot worse. With Gabe inaccessible whilst he relaxes on the island, she’s completely on her own and decisions must be made. But can she handle the backlash when he finds out what she’s done?

A truly superb series and each instalment just gets better and better! The drama is just so intense and I’m really routing for these guys to get it together in the end. And what a cliffhanger! Seriously can’t wait for the grand Slipperless finale!

Excerpt

 

Underneath the warm afternoon sun, we intertwined our bodies, twisting arms and legs as the  sailboat rocked back and forth with the gentle currents. Between the sounds of our hungry groans for one another, the lyrical cries of seabirds overhead passed in and out of my awareness.A subtle breeze stirred the sail into action, causing it to flap and crack like an oversized whip. I swirled my fingers in Gabe’s hair, gently twisting the  loose, damp curls. Gabe held me firm, with one hand around my midsection and the other cupping my breast.

When I thought I’d lost him, the feeling I experienced was about so much more than the physical. But now, having him here again, holding me, touching me and consuming me—I realized how connected I’d become to him.

I allowed my fingertips to slide down the back of his head, along his neck and towards the sun-warmed skin of his muscular upper back. Curling my fingers under, I dug the tips of my nails into his flesh as I further sought to reassure myself of his physical presence.

As I did, Gabe grunted and contracted his shoulder blades, drawing them together in a tight ball of sinew. I moaned in return and relaxed my grip, moving down further yet again until I reached the hard, round muscularity of his perfect ass, squeezing it and pulling it towards my hips.

Just then, Gabe separated his mouth from mine. As the satin soft feel of his lips moved away, I let loose with a disapproving pout.

Gabe chuckled as he looked down at me. “What’s the matter?”

Releasing one of my hands from his backside, I drew it up towards my face and pointed at my mouth.

“My lips miss you already.”

“Which ones?” Gabe said, with a devious smile on his face.

I returned his grin with one of my own. “You’re terrible, you know that?”

Tattered on my Sleeve (Lost Kings MC #4) by Autumn Jones Lake

 Book four in the Lost Kings MC series, Tattered on my Sleeve is Wrath and Trinity’s story! A brilliant MC novel which is most definitely value for money!

*Although this is the fourth book in the Lost Kings MC series, Wrath and Trinity’s story can be read first.

 

Blurb

Trinity Hurst. That girl fucking owned me the minute I laid eyes on her. At twenty-one years old she already had a cold, calculating wall around her. The walls she built up around herself were designed to keep guys like me away. Underneath her tough girl exterior lay something sweet and vulnerable that I very much wanted to explore.

I had her first.

I fell in love with her.

Then we fucked everything up.

Wrath.

His name should have been lust. Pure, soul-shattering lust was the deadly sin I felt when I looked up—way up—into his ocean blue eyes. I should despise bikers. I should most definitely steer clear of this one, with his thick, muscled arms, and low sensual voice. My normally impeccable self-preservation instinct vanished the minute he walked in the door. Like everything else in my life, I fucked it up. And he’s never going to forgive me.

Old Habits Die Hard.

Wrath and Trinity met when the Lost Kings MC was on shaky ground. After three perfect nights together, Wrath knew she was it for him. But Trinty’s dark past was about to catch up to her and the Lost Kings MC was her only hope for protection. One misunderstanding led to a chain of mistakes that pushed them apart for years. When long-buried secrets are finally revealed, Wrath will stop at nothing to break their bad habits and make Trinity understand—she belongs to him.

 

Author’s note: There is no actual cheating in Tattered on My Sleeve.

Review

This is my first Lost Kings MC novel but as it can be read as a standalone it still made sense even though its book 4 in the series! Tattered on my Sleeve follows Wrath and Trinity’s story and my goodness it’s a long one, at nearly 600 pages it’s definitely worth your money!

Trinity was running from her past when she turned up at the Lost Kings’ hangout. Working as a waitress, despite her experience with bikers and MCs, she couldn’t help feeling drawn to Wrath, the sergeant-at-arms of the MC. They spent a few days wrapped in each other before a terrible misunderstanding broke them apart.

Now 8 years later they still feel the pull to each other they felt all that time ago but so much has happened since then. Trinity’s past still haunts her every day and shapes every decision she makes. Not only must Trinity and Wrath learn to forgive and forget all they’ve done but also work through Trinity’s own issues. And with club drama occurring all around them, they’ll need to sort out their relationship sooner rather than later.

I’m really impressed with this book – there aren’t many 600 odd paged books which can keep me interested from start to finish. Their story, although long, worked and to be honest I don’t think it would’ve worked any other way. I loved the chemistry between our two leads and the element of Trinity’s past and the demons she must work past only added to the drama. As with most MC novels there was of course some club drama which worked in seamlessly with the romance unfolding. Really loved this novel, definitely worth a read!

Excerpt

Besides his job as enforcer for the Lost Kings MC, Wrath owns a gym. One of the ways he tries to reconcile with Trinity is by asking her to help him prepare for a fight. This is from one of the times they’re working together.
 

My attention is finally drawn to the papers Trinity has in her hands. “What’s that?”

“Oh, it’s nothing. I didn’t realize Jake was already… You asked me to put some stuff together… So never mind.”

She folds the papers in half before I snatch them out of her hands.

“Ow! Thanks for the paper cuts, asshat.”

Jake chuckles and grabs her hands to look them over. I can’t wait to get in the ring with him later and kick his ass while Trinity watches.

I’m impressed with what she printed out. I knew she’d be good at this. She’s got a week’s worth of circuit training exercises broken into different ones on each day. Each circuit includes a balance of strength and endurance exercises. I glare at Jake, and he takes the hint to get lost.

“You’ve done your homework,” I say, handing the papers back to Trin.

The corner of her mouth twitches down in disappointment. “You don’t think it’s any—”

“Is that what I said?” I hate snapping at her, but sometimes it’s the only way to get through her self-doubt.

“No.”

“Where’d you find some of these?”

“Are they too advanced for you?”

I tilt my head and stare at her. “Seriously?” She chuckles. “Good, then call me when you’re going to try the Front Lever. It looks sexy.” She spins away and heads back to the office.

Devil’s Blood (Royal Blood #3) by Amity Cross

Not for the faint hearted Devil’s Blood is the third book in the Royal Blood series by Amity Cross. If you like dark romances this is one for you.

Blurb
We would embrace the darkness together…
Or not at all.

Xavier Blood is a man adrift. And a dangerous man without purpose is a lethal cocktail for disaster. Mercy Reid has her revenge, but it’s not what her heart desires most.

After everything he’s been through, X doesn’t want to know where he came from, let alone who he was. Mercy has become his life, his anchor, his everything, so why should it matter?

Mercy thinks X is delaying the inevitable and pushes him to understand the thing he struggles with the most—his identity—but it might be one push too far in the wrong direction.

Who is Xavier Blood? Only one man has the answer and it’s the man Mercy wants to meet the least. The more X withdraws into his broken mind, the more desperate she becomes to save him, even if it means coming face to face with the man who tortured and conditioned her love to be a cold hearted killer.

The Watchman has the answers, but are they the ones she wants to hear?

Review

The Royal Blood series has been a dark and sometimes difficult read. Full of suspense, intrigue and a gripping storyline, the third book Devil’s Blood is no less captivating than the other books.

With Skyes gone, X and Mercy thought their difficult times may be past but with Royal Blood still on their tail that isn’t an option. X’s conditioning is slowly fading away and his memories are gradually coming back to him. As much as Mercy insists, X doesn’t want to know who he once was – what good would come of it? But his past doesn’t want him to forget and when it catches up to him X must embrace who he once was.

With Royal Blood out for blood they will do anything to keep X in line – even by going after his woman. Mercy is hell bent on getting the answers whether X wants them or not, no matter the cost to herself. When things don’t go as planned, Xavier has no choice but to find out the answer to the question he’s done everything to avoid – who is Xavier Blood?

Devil’s Blood is no less graphic or dark than the rest of the series but what a read! Gripping from start to finish, you never know what’s going to happen next. And of course it’s just as hot and steamy as the other books. All in all a great read – just don’t start this one if you’re in the mood for fairytales and sappy love stories because when the blood starts flying everywhere you’ll be sorely disappointed!

Bewildered (Irrationally His #2) by Jessa Jacobs

Stepbrother romance serial, Irrationally His, continues today with book two Bewildered by Jessa Jacobs. This is one hot cowboy you don’t want to miss out on!

bewildered

SYNOPSIS

 

What had gotten into me? As a student, I’d sketched nudes before. Not once had I been tempted to have sex with any of them. Not even the really hot ones. It was as plain as the sexy tattoo on Travis’s shoulder that I was out of control and getting worse by the minute.

I wasn’t sure what this was, but I couldn’t seem to stop, and Travis didn’t make it any easier with his constant temptations. I couldn’t help but feel it wouldn’t end well, and yet, I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. I knew how that usually turned out.

We were playing a dangerous game, one where I knew I could be hurt. But was it fair that innocent bystanders could also get hurt?

Bewildered is Part Two of the serial romance, Irrationally His. It is approximately 66 pages according to Amazon’s estimate, or about 20,000 words. It is not a standalone as it contains a cliffhanger.

bewildered teaser

Review

After her photo session with Travis, Chelsea is feeling a little hot under the collar. Now knowing more than ever she doesn’t want her relationship with Travis to end, she’s excited to begin her art sessions with him.

As the festivities continue both Chelsea and Travis must navigate their new found relationship whilst hiding it from everyone else as well as dealing with Chelsea’s past and jealous ranch hands. What could possibly go wrong?

Wow! Ms Jacobs has really stepped it up in book 2. Chelsea & Travis are really feeling the heat and I can’t wait to read what happens with them next! Their story took a turn I wasn’t expecting but I’m excited to see where it leads next – bring on book 3.

Excerpt

Photographing my stepbrother in action on his horse that afternoon had given me quite a few images I thought would be marketable, and the nude sketch was incredible, if I said so myself. Of course, I was ignoring the elephant in the room.

What had gotten into me? As a student, I’d sketched nudes before. Not once had I been tempted to give any of them a blow job. Not even the really hot ones. It was as plain as the sexy tattoo on Travis’s shoulder that I was out of control and getting worse by the minute.

How had I gone in less than a week from being enraged that he’d seen me topless to the state I found myself in tonight? Despite the incredible sex here in my room the other night, despite the shattering orgasm he’d given me with his tongue this afternoon, I was too keyed up to sleep. All I wanted was for him to knock on my door again tonight.

He probably wouldn’t. I’d thrown myself at him this afternoon, and though he cooperated—hell, he’d joined in with gusto—I already knew he was just playing with me for a good time.

After our parents’ wedding anniversary, he’d leave the ranch and that would be that. And I’d agreed to it. After all, what could come of falling for him? We’d never get away with pursuing a relationship in the open. That would just be too weird.

Too restless to sleep, I checked the time. It was late, but my bestie was in a later time zone. Maybe she’d still be up. I took the chance.

“It’s about time you called me, bitch,” she said, instead of ‘hello’.

“I know. What’s it been, twelve hours? You must have thought I’d died or something,” I answered in kind.

“I did. I totally thought you’d died. Seriously, I’ve been pacing the floor all day wondering how the posing project went. Was he willing?” Cozy’s tone was eager. Was she getting off on this? The bitch!

Was he willing, hmmm. How should I answer that? I’d barely suggested he pose nude when he was out of his clothes like a flash, all that yummy man-flesh on display…

“Yeah.”

“Yeah? That’s all you have to say? Spill it, slut, or I’ll…”

“Okay, yes! He was more than willing. Oh, my God, Cozy, he’s… Well, just wait ‘til you see the paintings.”

“Fuck the paintings, send me the photos.” She laughed, and I couldn’t blame her. I’d already described his chiseled chest and abs, and in fact had revealed he was endowed with a well above-average package.

“I can send you the best photos, but he wouldn’t let me take any of him nude. All I have is a sketch.”

“NUDE! DAMN, girl!”

I pulled the phone away from my ear just in time to keep from having my eardrum burst from her exclamation. When I could hear she’d settled down, I put it back.

“I told you I was going to ask him.”

“I didn’t believe you. You slut! What did he say? How did it happen?” Cozy was always one to want the juicy details, and I had plenty to give her.

“Well, I’d had him take his shirt off for the second round of action photos, on the horse. When we were done, he stretched out on the blanket and…”

“And what? Don’t tease me, girl.”

“Hold your horses. Jeez. Wait, I need to go back…”

I reminded her he’d said it in jest when I first brought up the subject, asking me if I wanted him to pose in the nude. Then I told her about the conversation we’d had about how much the paintings might bring.

“Honestly, Cozy, it was weird. Like the money wouldn’t mean anything to him. But I did downplay it a bit. He asked how much a nude of him might bring. I told him a couple of thousand.”

“What kind of cut were you offering him?” she asked, ever the finance guru.

“We’d talked about ten percent of the other ones. He’d probably want fifteen or twenty for the nudes. Even though the risk of our parents ever seeing them would be small. But honestly? I think they could go for five-k. You should see it.”

“It meaning his cock?”

“It meaning the sketch, skank. Jeez, Cozy, when did you turn into such a perv?”

“I’ve always been a perv, and so have you. The difference is, I admit it.”

About Jessa Jacobs

Like you, I’m a reader.

Excerpt

Those damn leather gloves, I blame them.I run my fingers through my hair to blow out at the wet strands that have stuck around my lips, and I grab my glass and gulp the remainder of my week old wine, before flopping back against the couch to collect my thoughts.

Seriously though, what the hell was that?

Pacer Fratelli is my client! A dangerous client. A client who I know is a murderer.

I can’t feel like this, but I do.

His smile flashes before my eyes again. Oh my god, would you just leave me the hell alone? I punch my fists down onto the chair, either side of me.

I strip down as I head to the shower, peeling off each layer like I’m shedding skin and discarding the clothes on the floor with an angry slap. My body is still abuzz with my post-assault, but at the same time, I am pissed off. These thoughts have no place in my mind. They can fuck right off.

A after a good talking to myself in the stream of the cold shower, I throw on my old university sweats, ready to see my night out in front of the coffee table … and all things Pacer Fratelli.

Dangerously hot, Pacer Fratelli.

Gah!

Engage

Synopsis

Two stories. One unforgettable message about finding love.

Amanda & Mathis

Just like that, he was gone.

Amanda Taylor knows that young love doesn’t always have a happy ending.

One summer in her teens, Amanda met and fell for Mathis Côté. Every moment they spent together was an exhilarating and beautiful dream. Love never felt so real. But as the summer ended, so did their time together. Mathis left with no explanation or reason and never spoke to her again.

Now, many years later, Amanda has grown past their brief time together, certain that she will never see Mathis again. However, when Amanda’s uncle dies, she is left an inheritance with a catch: Mathis Côté must be the one who trains her to take over her uncle’s wealth.

The new Mathis has become cold and distant. His years apart from Amanda have changed him into an arrogant wealthy man with an endless stream of women fighting for his attention.

Even though Amanda has contained her feelings from the past, she can’t help but try to find out about the man Mathis has become. As she slowly unravels the mystery behind his past, she uncovers a secret that may put both of their lives in danger.

Now, as Jennifer struggles to piece her life back together, she meets one man who could change everything.

Philip Haas is a self-made man who always gets what he wants. He’s the epitome of wealth, power, and sex. Despite his incredible wealth and seductive personality, his life has not been as easy as it appears.

Review

This is an unusual read in the fact that it features two different couples, who don’t appear to be connected, with their individual stories being told in alternating chapters. I wasn’t sure about this at first but it strangely works quite well and I enjoyed the different dynamics both stories brought.

So firstly Amanda & Mathis’ story. Amanda is just a normal accountant trying to pay her bills and make it through each day. When a close family member dies she’s devastated but is touched when she hears she’s been included in his will. Going along to the reading of the will the last thing she’s expecting to hear is that she’s been left her uncle’s life’s work and the large sum of money that accompanies it. Stunned she starts dreaming of the life she could now have – pursue the dream she’s always had but never been able to do. But there’s a catch – she has to learn how to manage what her uncle left her.

Enter Mathis, her uncle’s apprentice and the man she fell for when they were just teenagers. She hasn’t seen him in years but now she faces weeks of after hours meetings with him. But he isn’t the man she remembers – he’s cold towards her, unfeeling and acts as if their past doesn’t exist. Amanda knows that somewhere beneath the arrogant billionaire façade there’s the boy she used to know but Mathis is hiding something, something which could be fatal for both of them. Will she get through to him before it’s too late?

Now for Jennifer & Philip. Jennifer has had an abusive past but is now working in a well known hotel behind the desk. Late one night she sneaks out from behind the desk to play the piano, not knowing she has an audience. When she’s caught by a handsome stranger she couldn’t be more mortified, that was until he propositioned her. Having never done something like this before she decides to follow him upstairs, not seeing the harm in one night of passion.

The next day she sneaks out hoping to put the night behind her. But her handsome stranger has other plans. Jennifer’s life changed overnight, now spending her days flying across the globe and making a name for herself. But she can’t help but wonder – has Philip done this because of her professional skills or the ones she holds in the bedroom?

I really enjoyed both couples’ stories – each with their separate dramas and passionate tales. Both Philip and Mathis are the typical arrogant billionaire types with a tonne of secrets about their pasts. We’ve only been given a hint as what these may be and I’m intrigued to see what these boys have to hide. As for Amanda & Jennifer they’re both great leading ladies and I can’t wait to read the rest of their stories!

Slipperless (Book 3) by Sloan Storm

The wait is over book 3 is here! Gabe and Fiona’s story just gets better and better! Can NOT wait to read the rest of their story!

Blurb

Dominated. Humiliated… And desperate for more.

Review

This series just keeps on getting better but this book has to be the best so far! After a smoking hot cliffhanger at the end of book 2 I couldn’t wait to read what happened next…

After a dressing down (quite literally) in Gabe’s office, Fiona knows she can neither stay away from Gabe nor ignore his demands any longer. Gabe says she needs to do this presentation and learn how to manage her team and if she doesn’t then she’s out of a job. With her Grandma ill at home her income is desperately needed meaning refusing him is no longer an option. So she dives head first into becoming a better public speaker whilst keeping a keen eye on the two jealous women at the office, naively hoping this extra work will leave little time for Gabe.

But Gabe isn’t just demanding her time, he just wants her full stop. Dinners, meetings…Gabe cares little about others’ opinions nor what she’s currently doing, when he calls Fiona has to be there. She’s become his addiction – and as much as she hates to admit it, he’s become hers. No matter how hard she tries to resist him, to keep things professional for the sake of her career and livelihood, her resistance always crumbles. And as the pressure increases and tensions run high, Fiona has reached her boiling point.

With the stress mounting, her nerves frayed and her resistance crumbling Fiona is unable to refuse Gabe when he tells her he’s taking her away for some private tuition before the big presentation. Whether her tuition is about the talk or something much steamier she no longer cares. Together they will face Fiona’s fears, but will they both come out unscathed?

Things are really starting to heat up in this series, and the cliffhangers are killers! With both the drama surrounding Fiona and the pressure she’s feeling increasing, she’s certainly reaching a turning point. We also get to see a different side of Gabe – a more romantic, caring side which I just loved! Of course as well as the drama and Fiona’s issues there’s also Fiona & Gabe’s relationship which of course is still as HOT as ever – really can’t wait to see how they grow together.

A captivating read full of drama and passion, Slipperless just keeps on getting better and better.

Fiona 

Just as he finished speaking, Gabe leaned in and kissed me, sliding his hand behind my head as he did. Although I probably should have expected it and resisted, the simple fact was he’d caught me by surprise and I didn’t.

It was such a beautiful place and the truth was that I was tired. In reality, nothing would have felt better than the satin-like feel of his lips against mine just then. I relented and leaned into Gabe, giving in to his strength and my need for it. Without a word, he separated his lips from mine.

“Give me your hand,” he said.

Still in a daze from our kiss, I did as he asked. “Why?”

“Well, Fiona, we have to shower,” he began, as he tugged at me, pulling me off the stool. “You can’t get in the ocean dirty. That just wouldn’t be polite.”

“Oh, I see.”

Within minutes, Gabe stripped away what resistance I pretended to still have, and, after starting the shower, he reached down and grabbed hold of the door handle, tugging it open. Trailing Gabe’s chiseled backside into the heated mist, I watched as he walked under one of two large showerheads.

I closed on him just as the rain from overhead slid down his magnificent torso. Rivulets of wet heat rippled along his hard frame as I drew near, rubbing my body against his like a forlorn kitten.

I looked up into Gabe’s eyes, and as I did he leaned down and kissed me with a single, soft press against my cheek. Chills raced along my spine as he moved closer and trailed his slick lips down the side of my neck.

I trembled as Gabe’s tongue and lips suckled my wet flesh. Just then, he reached up and pulled my hair out of his way. With a tender slap, it clung to my back as Gabe’s mouth moved around behind me to the center of my neck, just above my shoulder blades.

My head listed and rocked like a wayward sea vessel in the midst of a storm. As the shower rained heat upon me, I leaned my curves against him. Gabe’s hands raced towards my hips, where he grabbed them and squeezed firmly. My lips parted, and as they did, a few droplets made their way inside. I tasted the water, laced with Gabe’s essence. A heady mix of musk and sweat rolled across my tongue like a subtle wave laps against a dock.

Complicated Creatures (Part One) by Alexi Lawless

This week I’ve been reading a new author for me – Alexi Lawless. This is a fast-paced romantic suspense which does not disappoint!

complicated creatures

synopsis

What happens when curiosity becomes obsession? And when that obsession leads to an unstoppable journey you could never have imagined?

Luck is Jack Roman’s middle name— and Chicago is his Empire. He lives to work, loves to play, and makes no commitments. But when the mysterious S. Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he’s immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.

Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past. An entire world is revealed to Jack, where living for pleasure becomes fighting for survival. And the only woman he wants may be the one he cannot have…

COMPLICATED CREATURES is a mesmerizing, labyrinthine romantic suspense that will leave you wondering: Do you really want to know everything about the one you love?

REVIEW

Wow! What a pleasant surprise! Like a lot of the previous reviewers I wasn’t sure what to expect form this book but I was wrong to be wary. Complicated Creatures is a great read with some fabulous characters and impeccable writing!

Jack Roman has kept his adjoining penthouse empty for a long time now waiting for his brother to finally decide to move, but after so long he’s starting to give up hope. When his friend says he’s found the perfect neighbour for him, he finally gives the go ahead to give it to someone – besides S. Wyatt sounds like a decent enough guy.

Well that was until he found a gorgeous woman swimming in their shared pool – S. Wyatt, or rather Samantha Wyatt. His new neighbour was a woman! A very attractive one at that. As they get to know each other it becomes clear there’s a lot more to Sam than first meets the eye. She’s strong and completely badass – the kind of qualities we’re used to reading about in our leading man.

I won’t go into the story much more as I don’t want to give it all away but there are so many twists and turns in this book – such an amazing story! Fast paced, full of drama and hot as hell! I really loved Sam and her relationship with her team – so many great secondary characters in this book! Having Sam as the strong leading lady she is made for such an interesting dynamic and I really loved reading her story. As for Jack he’s pretty damn awesome too! Really loved the chemistry between these two.

So much more than just an ordinary romance; riddled with drama and suspense this is one captivating read from start to finish. And the cliffhanger! I can NOT wait for more!

Bothered (Irrationally His #1) by Jessa Jacobs

 Another awesome serial by Jessa Jacobs starts today – this time a stepbrother romance! Bothered is the first book in the Irrationally His serial and promises to be one hot ride!

Blurb

 

“You do know you’re trespassing, right?”

“I’m not trespassing.”

He quirked one eyebrow, the challenge clear. Then he looked pointedly at my chest again.

I crossed my arms. “My mother is married to the owner of this ranch.”

His eyes widened. “Is she? How nice for you.”

With a cocky grin, he tossed my shirt to me, but didn’t look away. “I’m crushed you don’t remember me, Sis.”

It was one of the most humiliating moments of my life. It was supposed to be private here, but I’d been caught sunbathing nude.

The hot cowboy got a much better look at me than I got at him, but it didn’t matter anyway. He was off-limits. I’d just met my stepbrother after ten years of avoiding the hateful brat. During which, I guess we both grew up.

Review

After a stunning debut serial from Jessa I was really looking forward to this new serial – especially as it’s got hot cowboys in it!

After Chelsea’s Mum re-married and moved to a ranch with her new husband and step-son, Chelsea stayed with her Dad and her friends in the city. 10 years later she’s visiting the ranch for their wedding anniversary, expecting ranch hands and rodeos but not her gorgeous stepbrother.

Thinking she was alone at the ranch she takes a risk and decides to sunbathe with her top off – she didn’t count on falling asleep though! When she’s caught by a handsome cowboy she was mortified but nothing could be worse after she finds out he’s her step-brother. Now faced with a summer spent with her sexy as hell stepbrother, whose not only completely off limits but has also seen her practically naked, her summer just became a whole lot more complicated. Will she be able to stay away?

This is a fantastic start to the series – Travis promises to be one HOT cowboy! A really captivating story, smoking hot scenes and great character chemistry – a new serial not to be missed!

Excerpt

 

Chelsea

“You do know you’re trespassing, right?”

The voice startled me from a sound sleep and my eyes flew open to reveal what I at first thought was a vision straight out of my book. From my position, lying on my back, he looked too tall to be real, and the tight-fitting jeans, plaid Western shirt, and Stetson hat did nothing to dispel that thought. The expression on his face puzzled me at first. A wide grin revealed perfect teeth and belied the words he’d spoken.

I started to answer when I noticed his eyes flick from my face to my—oh, my God! My chest. My bare boobs. What the hell? I crossed my arms over myself and sat up in one motion. Looking around wildly for my shirt, I heard him speak.

“Looking for this?”

I hadn’t answered his accusation of trespassing, but I had plenty to say about him holding my shirt out of my reach. I wanted to cover way too much quivering flesh A-S-A-P. Thank God my lower half wasn’t naked. That would have been too much. Literally.

“Give me that, you bastard!” As I spoke, I lifted my face to glare at him. With a cocky grin, he tossed my shirt to me, but didn’t look away. “You could at least turn your back while I put this on.”

When he didn’t, I snarled, “You’re no gentleman.”

“Didn’t say I was,” was his laconic reply.

When he still didn’t turn away, I had no choice but to let one arm move to retrieve the shirt, and then to expose my boobs to his gaze again as I lifted my arms to pull the shirt over my head. Although I was covered, it wasn’t much better as the shirt was a bit too small, and in my haste to cover myself, I’d skipped the bra. A quick glance downward made me groan. In the now-chilly air under the shade of a tree, my traitorous nipples were in full evidence under the thin shirt. As was my belly. I sucked it in.

I was at a severe disadvantage in my sitting position on the ground, so I stood to look him in the eye. It wasn’t usually a problem for me to look a man in the eye, at my five-eleven height. Nevertheless, I had to look up several inches to meet his. “I’m not trespassing.”

He quirked one eyebrow, the challenge clear. Then he looked pointedly at my chest again.

I crossed my arms. “My mother is married to the owner of this ranch.”

His eyes widened. “Is she? How nice for you.”

“How long were you standing there getting an eyeful before you woke me?” I asked. I was about two seconds from punching this asshole in his pretty face.

“Oh, I don’t know,” he answered with a slow

drawl. “Ten minutes? Fifteen?”

“You bastard!” I exclaimed again. “I assume you work for my step-dad. I’m going to have you fired.” “You assume wrong, Chelsea,” he said.

Like you, I’m a reader.

Oh, and some scenes you may want to role-play with your lover.
