Feature and Giveaway: Crazy for You by Rachel Lacey



SHE'S TAKING A WALK ON HIS WILD SIDE

Emma Rush can't remember a time when she didn't have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven's resident bad boy is just so freakin' hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma's over being a "good girl," she needs a little help being naughty . . . and she knows just where to start.

Before Emma's brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything--including himself. When her brother doesn't come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he's still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can't stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take . . .

ARC Review: Ripple Effect: Episode 3 by Keri Lake


OMG!!!!! This book is ridiculously, insanely good. It is dark and twisty just like the two that came before it in the series but oh so good. Episode 3 picks up right where Episode 2 leaves off. Even though Episode 2 represented the beginning of the sexual relationship between Dylan and Rip but Episode 3 represents the beginning of the...more.

In Episode 3 we get a lot more information about the background of both Dylan and Rip. Honestly I just didn't know how to feel about Dylan. She only just turned 18 in book 2 and her life has been so awful. Dylan has been abused by nearly every adult in her life and it was just really hard to read some of it. On the other hand, Dylan continues to be one of the most dynamic characters I have ever read about. Dylan sees Rip the way nobody else has been able to and she responds to what he needs and not just what he says he needs. 

In this book Rip's obsession with Dylan grows and morphs into something even deeper. Rip is kind of a psychopath so I'm not entirely sure what love would be to him but it is clear that Dylan belongs to Rip. Even though Rip continuously tries to fall back on the monetary nature of his relationship with Dylan when she pushes back at him and challenges him, he refuses to let her go. Dylan's honesty with Rip was as compelling as his struggle to trust is.

Ok, hang on to your hats because there is a lot of action in this book. I'm just starting to get how things between the Marchetti issue and Enzo tie together with Rip. In this book there is a really unexpected twist that leaves us dangling off a serious cliff at the end. When I realized I was on the last page, I actually screamed NOOOOO! It didn't really change anything but I got the shout out of my system. I can't stress enough how much I appreciate the writing of these books. Every installment just keeps getting better and sucking you more into the world of Dylan and Rip.

I have one note to the author: I don't understand Episode 1. I almost didn't keep reading this series because of Episode 1. There isn't enough information about the relationship between Dylan and Rip in Episode 1 to give you a good idea of where this series is headed. I never would have known this series would progress the way it has based just on Episode 1. I would strongly suggest that Episode 1 and 2 be combined so the reader knows what they are in for. I would just hate for people to give up on this series because the first Episode didn't give them enough information to keep going.

Feature and Giveaway: Wild Ride by Julie Ann Walker


The hero we've all been waiting for…

Ethan "Ozzie" Sykes
Former Navy SEAL
Underground operator for Black Knights Inc., the covert government defense firm disguised as a custom motorcycle shop

In a black-on-black international mission that went seriously sideways, Ozzie was badly injured—now he's stuck at BKI headquarters in Chicago, champing at the bit to get out into the field again. To his disgust, he's tasked with distracting Chicago Tribune ace reporter Samantha Tate, who's been trying to dig up the dirt on BKI for years. Turns out Samantha's beauty, intelligence and sense of humor are a seriously big distraction, and Ozzie's losing his desire to keep her at bay.

Ozzie's tired of hiding, and Samantha may be the best—and worst—person to share his secrets with...

ARC Review: Chasing Kade by Anna Paige


This is my first book by this author. I see from some other reviews that Kade may have appeared in some other books that preceded this one and I will definitely have to check those out. By way of background, I can't ever decide how I feel about "rock star romance." I have sort of a love-hate relationship with all books in this genre so the fact that I actually thought this one was really good says a lot.

Kade is kind of a complex character. He is one of the lead singers of "thrill of the chase" and he struggles with his self perception. Kade sees himself as the....disposable savior. Kade is the guy who would throw himself in front of the bus to save his brothers. Part of the reason he'll do it though is because he sees his brother as more valuable than himself. He's the one who he thinks everyone else can do without so it's his job to take all the hits. Well, that's what he tells himself and that's what makes him really hard to figure out.

Aubrey is a PR rep who is brought in to shepherd the band through the end of their tour after a scandal involving to half naked girls breaks out. Aubrey takes the total wrong approach to the situation and triggers every one of Kade's defenses (of which there are many). Aubrey realizes the error of her ways and tries to dial it back but Kade is as unforgiving of other people as he is of himself. To complicate matters, Kade is immediately attracted to Aubrey. What transpires is a series of super hot encounters between them that seems like it's destined to explode at some point. Aubrey had a way of seeing through Kade's defenses and falling for the hero underneath. Aubrey knows Kade has issues and she knows he will probably hurt her but she just can't help herself.

I liked a lot of things about this book. The sex scenes were crazy. There is even a very unexpected thing that happens (I don't want to spoil it) that really kicks things up a notch. The writing of the book in terms of the storytelling is pretty good. There are a lot of supporting characters in this book and it seems like the author is giving just enough information to spark interest in reading their eventual stories. There were also things I didn't like. Some of the long pages of interactions with the supporting cast seemed tedious. Kade was really really a jerk. Even though I kind of like jerky guys, Kade was a jerk to everyone. He was just a generally disagreeable person and it took me a long time to figure out why. And so even though part of me loved that Aubrey was able to work through Kade's issues, part of me also wanted her to start refusing to put up with his mood swings.

All in all this is a pretty good read and probably an exceptional one for you rock star romance lovers.
