Review: Anew: Book One: Awakened by Josie Litton

In this erotic retelling of “Sleeping Beauty” set in the near future, a beautiful young woman awakens in the garden of a secluded palazzo with no knowledge of who she is or how she came to be there. For the man who walks out of the darkness to claim her, she is at once the ultimate challenge and the greatest temptation.

Haunted by terrifying memories of another existence, Amelia is caught between passionate desire for Ian and longing to discover her true self. Even as he is determined to possess her body and soul, Ian’s need to protect Amelia leads him into a confrontation with his tormented past. 

Together, they face the challenges that lie beyond the sanctuary of the palazzo in the glittering world city on the edge of cataclysmic change. In the midst of sensual excess that conceals seething rebellion, Amelia and Ian will discover that love has become the ultimate threat to survival. 

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
What would you do if you woke up and didn't know who you were, where you are, or where you came from?  Everything is a blank, except for a few glimpses of sexual need and arousal.  Those questions and more plague Amelia in Josie Litton's newest novel series, ANEW.  

In this beautiful like-tale of Sleeping Beauty, the characters are exquisitely crafted to match the amazing story that is arranged skillfully by this author.  Amelia, being newly awakened, is lost in a society that she does not understand.  She is a gift to the new world in her own right, but many people cannot grasp who or what she really is.  Her only saving grace is the man who awakened her, Ian.  He invokes so many tumultuous feeling within her that captures her from the moment she sees him and won't dispel.  Ian, on the other hand, is seized by the immediate response his body and soul has towards Amelia.  He wants her deeply, from the core of his being.  However, with outlying forces at work he knows he must protect her, yet at the same time, keep her, control her, own her...

Will this couple be able to master the plan that has been set by Ian's dead friend?  Can they overcome the outside world's bitterness and short-sidedness and reach the greatest gift of all..love?  Read this book to find out.  It will not disappoint you!

From the very beginning this story will draw you into it's fantastical plot and keep you there until the very end.  I was imprisoned by the shear magnetism that the characters portrayed.  I was amazed by the story's message of how ignorant people can believe that different is bad, but we all know that being different is very good.  I absolutely cannot wait to read the next installment of this series, being that the author leaves us hanging on.  I'm on the edge waiting patiently for what will happen next.  You have awakened me, Josie!  ~TSRBR   

Hero - Ian 4.5 stars
Heroine - Amelia 4.5 stars
Steam Level: 4.5 stars 
Plot: 4.5 stars 
Cliffhanger: Yes

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  No doubt.  This book has all the unnerving, sensual romanticism that a book can give and leave you wanting more.  ANEW is a beautifully scripted work of art.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  I love Josie Litton's creativeness.  She will capture you and keep you conquered in everything she writes.

Review: Second Position (Dirty Dancing #2) by Melody Grace

Dancing with the perfect partner is like the most exquisite climax of your life.
Can you feel it? The way our bodies rock together. My hands pinning you down, my mouth sliding over your hot, damp skin. Each hard thrust driving deep to that place you never dreamed possible. Every breathless cry hurtling you closer to the edge.
Beyond words. Beyond thought. Beyond reason. 
I’d all but given up on perfection like that. Until I met her. Annalise. 
Her body is pure motion; her spirit, a caged bird just waiting to be set free. 
I will claim her. I will possess her.
I will teach her the most erotic dance of all.

*Part two of the sexy, seductive romance serial*

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Annalise has breathed, ate and dreamed of ballet all her life.  Her mother was a prima ballerina and had always let Annalise know how disappointed she was in her for not accomplishing the same. A trip to Rome with a possible solo opportunity is her last chance not to let her mother down and fulfill her dreams. But meeting Raphael and dancing with him changes so many things for Annalise.  Can she win her place as a ballerina and still dance with Raphael? Or will she loose the freedom she finds in Raphael’s arms?

From the moment he held her in his arms and they danced together in perfect harmony, Raphael knew she was the only one for him.  He wants her not only on the dance floor but also everywhere else!  Will he be able to convince her to dance with him?  Can he persuade her to be a part of his life? As circumstances unfold between them, their time together may only be a dream.  Read this remarkable story and become part of their erotic dance!

Excerpt from Fierce

My eyes dropped to her chest. That top fit her tits like a glove; any man would struggle to keep their eyes off her chest. I wasn’t a saint and had no problem showing my appreciation so it took me more than a few moments to look back up to her face. She was shaking her head at me but there was a hint of a smile.

I smirked. “Sweetheart, if you’re gonna wear shit like that you’ve gotta expect men to stare.”

“Turn around.”


She repeated herself. “I said, turn around.”

“Yeah, I got that but I’m wondering where you’re going with this.”

She walked over to me until she was in my personal space. A sexy smile came over her face and she said, “I want you to turn around so that I can check out your ass cause baby, a woman’s got needs and if you’re gonna wear shit like that, her needs are gonna be fulfilled.”

I reached out and curled my hand around her neck, pulling her closer. “Fuck woman, what are you doing to me?”

Her breathing became ragged. “The same thing you’re doing to me.”

Cover Reveal: Illicit Promise by Taylor Michaels


Today is the cover reveal for ILLICIT PROMISE, an adult romance by Taylor Michaels. This title will be released on March 26th, 2015 and it is the 2nd book in the Illicit Desire series. Check out the exclusive excerpt below!



I thought I could let her walk away….

Cora Milan left. The secrets and lies that come with being with Raphael Ortiz are too much, and she bolts, retreating to the dubious safety of anonymity. But with the stalker from her past in Miami, Raphael is refusing to let her go. If there is anything the cartel lord is good for, it is protecting what is his—and Cora is.

As the secret from Cora’s past stalk them both, pressure is mounting from Raphael’s criminal connections. And then an attack from the Columbian cartel shakes Miami and Raphael’s empire, and Cora isn’t sure how to leave Raphael so devastated.

He promised to protect her. But what happens when he needs protection and she’s the only one who can offer it?


I stare at him. It’s been a week since we’ve seen each other, even though I know he’s been watching me. And now, here he is, larger than fucking life, sitting in my living room. He’s dressed down, in dark jeans, a cream button down, aviators that hide his eyes, but not the heat of his gaze as it crawls over me.
I want him. I want him, and I hate him for making me feel that again.
“What are you doing here?” I ask, and I’m so fucking proud of myself, that I manage to pull off distant and unaffected. His fingers, drumming on my table, still, and he shifts, sitting up.
“You won’t answer my calls. I didn’t have a lot of choice.” He says carefully. He stands, and I take a step back—the safety of distance. Even this close, with the room and the table between us, I want his hands on me.
I miss him, and I  can’t help but search his face for signs as he slips off the sunglasses.
Hunger, so hot and strong, it makes my breath catch, flashes in his eyes. He’s looked at me like that, when I was naked in his bed, and on my knees in front of him.
I look away and he hisses a soft curse. “Bonita, I’m here because Graham is in Miami.”

Cover Reveal: Bolt From The Blue By Tania Sparks

Excerpt - Prologue

A few weeks back…it all started at a bar…
Me and the rest of the Oblivion guys are chillin’ in the garden bar down at Ash’s local. The band’s having a few drinks before we go back to his place for a barbecue tonight. We re-join our tour in a few days, so it’s cool to have a bit of R&R before we hit the road again.
I’m sipping on my beer when I see her sauntering through the bar. She weaves between the tables confidently and has an air of assertiveness that makes her seem like she owns the place. Her long blonde hair has the bottom half colored bright pink and it falls seductively over her shoulders and down her back. I can imagine that hair splayed out across my bed.
Her clothes are tight and cling to every luscious curve and her black fuck-me stiletto boots would feel so freakin’ good with her legs wrapped around my neck. She’s a vision and I can’t take my eyes off of her. I stand up so I can get a better view as I peer around the crowd of people. I say loud enough for everyone else to hear, and more importantly to stake my claim, “Holy fuck, I call dibs on that.”
She’s looking around for someone. I feel like yelling out, “Hey baby, I’m right here!” but god-damn it, she won’t even look my way. She gets closer and my body reacts instantly. My dick stands to attention and adrenaline courses through my body. I prepare to give her my best panty-dropping smile. All I need is for her to glance my way. I notice that every other fucker in the bar is sizing her up too. A sudden wave of possessiveness hits me as my over-excited libido screams, “Mine!”
She turns a corner and starts to make her way towards us. Her face lights up in a big smile that emphasizes her perfect pink lips. I smile back and start to raise my hand to wave, but she glances at me, then looks straight past me. What the fuck! Am I losing my magic touch?  But then she raises her hand and excitedly waves. Yes score!  
Hold on a sec, why is Ash’s girl Eve waving too? The sexy lady’s wave must have been intended for Eve, not for me! I quickly drop my hand before I look like a complete and utter dickhead. Holy hell, Eve had told us that her best friend was joining us, but I didn’t expect the sex kitten that has just made an appearance. Hell yeah, fucking awesome!
Here she comes. Jesus, she’s even more gorgeous up close than from a distance. My night just got so much better! Once she arrives at our table Eve starts to introduce her to everyone, apparently her name is Trixie.
I try to nudge my way to the front, but Eve’s introducing her to everyone else first and is completely ignoring me. What the hell! Let me get to her. Eve’s doing this on purpose I can tell. I’ll have to have a chat to Ash later so he can make sure his girl falls into line. There’s a pecking order here and there’s no way I’m fucking last on the list!
The sexy lady winks at me. Fucking winks!  Hell yeah, this is gonna be fun.  
Trixie’s definitely into me. I can tell by the way she keeps glancing back to me with that sassy grin on her face. Her eyes feel like they’re undressing me. I know she’s imagining me naked – bring it on baby!
Eve finally gets around to me. “Trixie, this is Nikki, Oblivion’s rhythm guitarist. Nikki this is Trixie, my best friend.”
Trixie’s eyes seductively peruse my body. She puts her hands on my shoulders and gives me a lingering kiss on my cheek. Her lips burn into my skin. She purrs, “Nice to meet you Nikki”. Her voice is raspy and sounds like sex. Her words ricochet around in my head as I stare unashamedly at her lips. God, I wonder what she could do with that mouth? I give her the same inspection that she’s just given me. Her body rocks and I can tell she’s a little firecracker. I think I’m in for a wild ride tonight!
I suddenly realize I haven’t said anything. I silently scold myself. Speak you douchebag!
“Hi” I mumble.
Hi? Fucking hi! That’s all I can come up with? I have a million smooth pick-up lines in my repertoire, and all as I can say is fucking hi!  It’s okay I can recover from my monumental balls-up. I’m way cooler than this. I sit down on a stool and pat the one next to me, “Have a seat Trixie.” She smiles at me sweetly and walks towards the stool. Then she does something really bizarre. She picks up the stool and moves it down a few spaces and places it next to Cody, our drummer. Fucking Sticks! She’s put the stool so close to him she’s practically sitting on his lap. What the hell! The cocky bastard grins at me and shrugs his shoulders.
Okay, so this little minx wants to play games huh? I can work with that. I know she wants me. I can see how her body reacts to mine. It’s only a matter of time sweetheart. Only a matter of time…

A minute or two ago…
Hell that boy’s got me heated! I need to get some distance between us because at this  point I have an over-whelming urge to throw myself at him. When Eve told me that some of Ash’s band mates were hot, she didn’t tell me that the one she introduced as Nikki was off-the-planet scorching! I spotted him before I even spotted her. I could feel his eyes burning into me and as soon as our gazes crossed I swear I felt a jolt of electricity.
He makes my body burn and my thoughts are anything but pure. He has the whole rock star thing down pat and looks like he’s made for doing very naughty things. He must be at least six feet tall, I can tell he’s ripped and has a body to die for. His muscled arms are covered in colorful tattoos and he fills out his sleeveless t-shirt perfectly. He has a piercing through his eyebrow and another one in his lip that I’m just dying to suck on. He has black gages in his ears and a cheeky self-assured smirk on his face. His black straight hair is flopping over his eyes that are currently covered by his dark sunglasses. I can see he’s interested in me and I’m definitely interested in him. But I think I might make him work for it, it’s more fun that way.
He hasn’t said much. Maybe he’s more of a doer than a talker? and I bet he’s an expert at doing!  A cocky grin covers his face. He sits down on a stool and pats the one next to him, “Have a seat Trixie” he rumbles. His voice is deep and I can almost feel the vibration tingle through my body.
I smile sweetly at him, no way am I going to make it that easy for him! I wander on over to the stool, pick it up and move it a few spaces down to sit next to one of the other guys, I think Eve said his name is Cody. He’s hot too with his red Mohawk and cheeky smile. But he’s not the one I want. I want Nikki, but I’m going to make the rock star work for it. I like being chased and I think I’ll have a bit of fun teasing this one.
The look on Nikki’s face is so hilarious I almost laugh out loud. His jaw has hit the ground as he registers with shock that I chose not to sit next to him. He smirks and shakes his head in disbelief.
The conversations around the table quickly get underway and everyone is joking and chatting. This group of rock stars are really laid back and fun. Being so famous I thought they might be a bit precious, but they’re easy to talk to and treat me like one of the group. I feel like I fit in really well. Over the next hour we drink and joke around. The whole time I can feel Nikki’s eyes on me.
One of the guys encourages his girl to dance with him as they stand on the bench seat and grind against each other. Our whole group starts singing along to the words of the Lily Allen song that’s playing, ‘We just wanna dance the night away, we don’t give a damn what people say, we’ve had enough, so turn it up, tonight we’re taking over …’  Everyone’s oblivious to the fact that no one else in the bar is singing or dancing. I guess these guys make their own fun.
The next thing I know Cody’s jumped up onto the top of the table. He grabs my hand and pulls me up to dance. I yelp in shock and giggle as we dance erotically on the table. I look down to Nikki and he has an annoyed scowl on his face. He rubs his chin in thought then lifts his sunglasses to the top of his head. With a smug smirk on his face he jumps up, quickly launches himself onto the table and flicks me around so I’m facing him. He assertively grabs my hands and places them around his neck and grasps me firmly on my hips. He’s smiling at me confidently as he growls into my ear, “No more games Trixie, you’re mine and it’s about time you realized that you and me are inevitable”.
Holy crap! I guess my teasing has had the desired effect as he stakes his claim. His eyes are hooded and oh so sexy. It’s then that I notice his irises are the color of chocolate. They had previously been covered by his sunglasses but they’re so intense I can feel them burning into me. My insides melt.
He pulls me in close so our bodies are touching all the way from our knees to our shoulders. We move together in time to the music and I feel his hard and very large erection pushing into my stomach as we grind provocatively against each other. It’s only then that I notice that Cody is still dancing behind me. His hands are on my waist and his body is moving close to mine. Although it feels great having two sexy rock gods paying me this much attention, I decide it’s time to let Nikki know I’m definitely interested in him. I look over my shoulder to Cody, raise my hand to my mouth and blow him a good bye kiss. Cody shrugs his shoulders and I quickly turn my attention back to Nikki. We continue to move against each other provocatively, I’m sure we’re putting on quite a show, but this boy is making my body sing. I can’t wait for this night to progress…

“Hearing that story makes me wish I could have been the one to protect you,” he said.

“I don’t need your protection,” I sniffed. “I’m little, but I can take care of myself.”

“Everyone needs help. Sometimes.” He reached up and slid the hair back from his face exposing the scar on his cheek.

I didn’t know how to answer that. I still didn’t know how he’d gotten those scars, but more than that, I didn’t know who I wanted protecting me now.

I stepped through the fence. “I guess this is good-night,” I whispered.

“Sleep well, doctor.”

I shook my head and sneaked past the cabins across the dark yard and into the dormitory. Once inside I stood for several minutes with my face pressed against the doorjamb.

Why was this happening? I wasn’t this kind of person. Other girls got their feelings all mixed up over boys, but I didn’t. That question had been settled in my mind years ago, and yet here I was acting like a starry-eyed little twit. I was failing in my job to rescue us. Everyone was counting on me, and here I was useless, fighting this battle with myself. I had to get it together. I had to get myself back on track, for all of us.

Merrick Ta’Duran is the powerful leader of the Eastern Mountain Clan on the Prime world of Baade. His people, known as the Ghosts of the Forests, live high in the Eastern mountains. Merrick feels the weight of responsibility as the males within his clan become desperate to find mates among the few remaining females. When word comes that a new species has been discovered, he knows he must do what is right for his people - even if it means traveling to a strange, alien realm to do it.

Merrick’s world changes when he is injured and captured by a ruthless group of humans. Drugged and held against his will, he is the subject of experiments and testing as the humans try to discover where he came from and duplicate his strength and ability to heal quickly. After months of captivity, he fears his life will end on the strange world until one chance encounter gives him hope.

Addie Banks’ world has been one of silence since a devastating illness when she was sixteen. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she goes to school during the day and works at night to put herself through college. Her life unexpectedly changes when she stumbles across something she wasn’t supposed to see while at work. Now, she hears a voice in her head - and it is driving her crazy. Her only hope for peace is to help the creature talking to her escape from the men holding him. 

Merrick knows the female who helps him is his bond mate. She may deny it. She may fight it. She may even try to run from it. It won’t matter. She is his and he will do everything he can to convince her, hold her, even kidnap her if that is what it takes to make her realized that they belong together. 

Will Addie hear the love and longing in Merrick’s voice? Can she trust and accept the new life he has to offer? Or, will a ruthless killer silence him before she gets a chance?

Love is not defined by race, color or ethnicity; it is defined by the heart and soul.  Prime Warriors bond for life and cannot survive without their bondmate.  In this fifth book in the Cosmos’ Gateway series by S. E. Smith, she continues the story of Merrick the Leader of the Eastern Clan on Blaade. Merrick was captured during a mission on Earth to help his allies.  He knows that they are trying to retrieve him from his captors. His prayer is that they find him in time, because his time is running out!

At the tender age of sixteen Addie Banks lost her hearing when she contacted Spinal Meningitis.  She has fought to become an independent, self-sufficient woman in a world without sound.  Addie has always been surrounded by love and her supportive family but she needed to step out on her own.  In order to support herself she had taken a job to clean different offices.  While cleaning she stumbles across a man (being) in a cell, chained down and in bad shape.  She knows that she must help him, but doesn’t know how.  When Addie begins hearing a voice in her mind, she thinks she may have gone off the deep end until she realizes it is the man in the cell.  Who is this man?  How can he speak to her in her mind?

Merrick cannot believe that he has finally met his bondmate. Now he has something to live for, to fight for and he will find a way to escape and protect Addie, his mate.  He is imprisoned with no way to protect her or to claim her. Since he was taken, his captors have experimented, drugged and abused him relentlessly almost to the point death. His body cannot take much more and from the things he has overheard, he doesn’t have much time left before they kill him. Merrick knows that there are people searching for him that will not give up; he just needs to find a way to get a message to them before it is too late.  Will he find a way?  Can his people find him in time to save him and Addie?

Would I recommend this book: Yes! True love will always find a way around all obstacles and this book is a testament to that! Acceptance, love and really fantastic sex also help to push this love story into another place.  When you add a hot, sexy alien and a smart, full of it female you have an unbeatable combination!

Would I recommend this author: Yes! Each book that Ms. Smith pens is an adventure for her readers!  Her characters are unforgettable and the plots are well thought out and moving.  If she is not on your must read author list, she should be for all lovers of good romance.
