Feature: Tempt Me by J. Kenner

Sometimes passion has a price …

When sexy Stark Security Chief Ryan Hunter whisks his girlfriend Jamie Archer away for a passionate, romance-filled weekend so he can finally pop the question, he’s certain that the answer will be an enthusiastic yes. So when Jamie tries to avoid the conversation, hiding her fears of commitment and change under a blanket of wild sensuality and decadent playtime in bed, Ryan is more determined than ever to convince Jamie that they belong together.

Knowing there’s no halfway with this woman, Ryan gives her an ultimatum – marry him or walk away. Now Jamie is forced to face her deepest insecurities or risk destroying the best thing in her life. And it will take all of her strength, and all of Ryan’s love, to keep her right where she belongs…

ARC Review: Hard Rhythm by Cecilia Tan

This is the third book in this series but it's my second read in the series. I read the last installment but I will say for any readers who also read that last book, this one is pretty different. The characters in this book are not like the others in the series and the book has a different feel than at least the last book.

Maddie is a hostess at the super exclusive sex club that is featured in all the books in this series. When we are introduced to Maddie, she is described as a switch- someone who can alternate between being a Dom and a submissive. I don't really love the female Dom books but if you are like me, no need to be concerned about this one. Maddie is a sub for nearly the entire book. In fact, I think it's fair to say that what Maddie really needed and longed for was the freedom to be a submissive. In the scenes where she acts as a Dom, the real Maddie is locked up tight.

Maddie has been attracted to Chino whose entire band is in the sex club but she has never acted on that attraction. Maddie assumed that Chino was just some arrogant rock star/manwhore Chino, mostly in response to Maddie's attitude towards him assumes that Maddie hates him. But then something happens. Chino challenges Maddie in a way that she can't pass up and through that challenge Maddie discovers something about herself that she had been missing. Maddie doesn't know how to deal with finding this part of herself but Chino knows and is the perfect balance for her. And even though Chino is hiding stuff of his own, Maddie also helps him to come to terms with some truths and to accept himself.

Oh oh oh, how could I forget, the sex scenes are amazing. The BDSM aspects are well described and realistic without being over the top. The characters are well developed, the story moves forward quickly and I think you'll find this book entertaining and romantic.

ARC Review: Beaus and Arrows Anthology

I have to admit that anthologies aren't always my favorite, but they are a great way to discover new authors and stories that you might not get a chance to otherwise. Not only that, but all of the profits from Beaus & Arrows are going to Pennies-4-Paws, so this is a great way to do something that you love and give back at the same time. I will say that I enjoyed this anthology a lot! There were several authors that were familiar to me, while others were new. The great thing is though that you do not need to be familiar with any of them in order to enjoy this anthology. 

This anthology was filled with stories for romance readers of all genres. The stories ranged from sweet to sexy, with some characters being well loved favorites while others were new. The great thing about an anthology is that even if you aren't liking a particular story, they are short and you are able to move on to the next one quickly. I found myself drawn in right away though, and I have to say that there are so many authors and stories that I will be checking out after sampling their work here. If you are looking for some great short romance stories, this is definitely one worth picking up. These are great to fit in when you are limited on time, or if you are looking to discover some new authors that you might have been wanting to try.

I definitely recommend this anthology, and while I did have some that I liked better than others, I can honestly say that I enjoyed this entire anthology. Make sure that you pick this one up quickly, as it will only be available for a limited time.

Beaus & Arrows contains the following stories: Perfectly Us by Abby Brooks, Right For Love by Aria Cole, Pinnacle - A Destined Series Story by Ashley Suzanne, The Wedding-Night Stand by Ava Harrison, One Night by Callie Anderson, All Wrong by Callie Harper, Love on a Plane by Ilsa Madden-Mills, Taking My Shot by Jen Frederick, Someone Not You by Jessica Hawkins, A Very Locklaine Valentine by Jessica Prince, What Love Built by J.L. Berg, Special Delivery by Liv Morris, Mr. First Time by L.J. Shen, Rhythm by Mandi Beck, Livi's Love by M.J.

Duke has always made it clear she’s not his type. Yet the simmering tension between them says otherwise….

Duke had been warned to steer clear of hot-tempered Neve, but his resolve is lessening with every heated exchange—and every smoldering touch. By the time Neve unearths a dangerous, age-old mystery buried on the property, Duke is ready to do just about anything to keep the brazen beauty safe….
