Our Favorite Books for the First Quarter of 2017

(In Alphabetical Order by Title)

 

245 Days by Isabelle Peterson

Amount of Sex 3.5 / 5
How explicit 4 / 5
Romance 5 / 5
OVERALL 5 / 5

I absolutely LOVE The Dream Series by Isabelle Peterson and was super excited to hear about her new book, 245 Days! I was counting the days, like Taylor and Ashley, until I got my hands on it!

First, I must say that I love their names… absolutely love! I think it’s pretty brillant of Ms. Peterson’s to use names that could be used either for a man or woman. Now… with that said, the characters are so well developed and I became attached to Taylor and Ashley very quickly! The story line was so much more than just a steamy forbidden student/teacher relationship. The twists and turns kept me gripping my Kindle late into the night rooting for the boys.

I often find that books with a great story line, often tend to be less explicit and/or lighter in sex scene. This is so not the case for 245 Days, not only did it have an excellent story line, but also many hot and steamy sex scenes.

A perfect combination and one of my favorites for 2017!

BEAUTIFUL DARK (Beautiful Rivers # 3) by J.L. White

Amount of sex 4 / 5
How explicit 4 / 5
Romance 5 / 5
Overall: 5 / 5

Another beautiful, emotional and phenomenal story from author J.L. White!

I absolutely love the Beautiful Rivers Series by Ms. White and couldn’t wait to begin the third book, Beautiful Dark. This story begins with Lizzy flying out to Mason Reeve’s house to get answers to questions that were raised in the second book, Beautiful Fall. Lizzy and Mason seem to come to a better understanding of their situation, but it is still a rocky road for the rest of the families.

Mason flies to California to look at the house he was gifted in Lizzy’s father’s will. While there, Lizzy invites him over for a Thanksgiving feast, which causes an uncomfortable situation for all. While at the party, Mason meets Corrine, Lizzy’s cousin. Mason and Corrine are captivated with the other, but their family’s connection does not make it easy to date. Can they overlook everything that has happened? What will their families say?

Beautiful Dark’s story line is unexpected, refreshing, and unique and I loved every minute of it. I cried, laughed, grimaced and grinned to this excellent, steamy and heartwarming story.
One of my favorite books of 2017! #OneClick!

CRUSH ME (Crush Me # 1) by Stasia Black

Amount of sex 4 / 5
How explicit 5 / 5
Romance 4 / 5
Overall: 5 / 5

When I began Crush Me by Stasia Black, I found myself not liking one of the main characters. Bryce Gentry, the owner and head of Gentry Information Technologies, is crass, manipulative, sadistic, sexiest, and I could probably keep going. Calliope (Callie) Cruise is a single mother and struggling with her current situation. In her attempt to solve some of her problems, she begins working as Mr. Gentry’s personal assistant. It becomes evident from the very beginning that this is not the best working situation, but the salary is more important. Mr. Gentry introduces Callie to Jackson Vale, a current business rival, with a business proposal. He suggests Callie help persuade Mr. Vale to agree to the proposal.

Crush Me is an amazing book and I felt so emotional during the whole story! It does contain trigger warnings as well as dark topics, so be advised. The characters are well developed and the story line was very emotional.

A definite One-Click!!

One of my favorites for 2017!

Giving Up (Brewhouse # 1) by Holly Dodd

Amount of sex – 4 / 5
How explicit – 5 / 5
BDSM/Fetish – 3 / 5
Romance – 4.5 / 5
OVERALL – 5 / 5

I just love reading naughty books and Giving It Up by Holly Dodd is deliciously naughty! The story is set at the University of Wisconsin – Madison where Jolene “Jo” Miller is studying to become a sex therapist. Her one major setback is that she is still a virgin!

Jo craves Regi, but he won’t date her until she loses her lose her virginity. So, she plans on asking her best friend Kevin to help her solve the problem. Kevin has had feeling for Jo for a long time and decides this is the time to convince Jo.

Sometimes I find that erotic books can lack the story line and just focus on the sex. Giving It Up not only had lots of dirty talk and naughty sex scenes, but the story line is fabulous! The characters are engaging and I absolutely recommend this to all those naughty book lovers!

Lost In Between (Finding Me # 1) by K.L. Kreig

Amount of sex 4.5 / 5
How explicit 4.5 / 5
Romance 5 / 5
Overall: 5 / 5

Last year, I read this amazing book called Black Swan Affair by K.L. Kreig and I fell in love with the story line, characters and writing. As soon as I saw Ms. Kreig’s new book, Lost In Between, I one-clicked it before I even read the blurb and I am so glad that I did!

Shaw comes from a wealthy family, but he’s not spoiled, entitled, or full of himself. He’s a hardworking man who loves his family and knows having a steady girlfriend would look better for his father’s mayoral re-election. What starts off as a standard agreement between Willow and Shaw becomes so much more!

I don’t want to mention too much about the plot, but Ms. Kreig does a brilliant job of weaving us an amazing story line! I believe I held my breath during the last chapter with all the twists at the end. I might go into withdrawal soon…. I NEED Found Underneath, the conclusion of Shaw & Willow’s story!

Amount of sex 4 / 5
How explicit 4.5 / 5
BDSM/Fetish 1.5 / 5
Romance 5 / 5
Overall: 5 / 5

I absolutely love Giving It Up by Holly Dodd, the first book in the Brewhouse series, and I couldn’t wait for the second book, Pin Me Down, to be released! Pin Me Down can be read as a standalone, but I encourage you to read Giving It Up first, as the characters are so well developed and the story line deliciously naughty.

Pin Me Down focuses on Mia and Regi and their complex history. They first met in their senior year of high school, when Regi moved in next door to Mia. He fell for her almost instantly, but Mia would only agree to be friends with benefits. Regi wanted to try a long distant relationship, while at college, but Mia would not agree and they went their separate ways.

Due to an issue with Regi’s scholarship program, he was able to transferred to another school of his choosing. He decided to go to Mia’s school and tried unsuccessfully to win Mia over. Now, five years later Mia finds Regi in a compromising situation which absolutely guts her. What will happen to Mia and Regi? Will she ever forgive him?

I LOVE love LOVE this book and can’t wait for the next one! The characters in Pin Me Down are complex and engaging and I read this book in one sitting!

A Must Read Series!

The Deep End (Honey # 1) by Kristen Ashley

Amount of sex 5 / 5
How explicit 5 / 5
BDSM/Fetish 5 / 5
Romance 5 / 5
Overall: 5 / 5

Jen here! Ok, The Deep End has made me reconsider my whole rating scale. A score of 5 is not enough – I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was hot and steamy. I fell in love with Olly and Leigh. I am definitely into the female domme and this book did not disappoint.

This book has the love story and the supporting characters. It has the hot and detailed goings on at the Honey Club, an exclusive BDSM club in Phoenix, AZ. The author moves the POV between Amélie (Leigh) and Olivier (Olly). This gives the reader a deeper understanding of what each character is feeling as their story unfolds. It is particularly insightful in understanding why big strong Olly wants to dominated and what it means to him to give over to his desires.

This is a standalone book, but I am looking forward to finding out more about the Honey Club’s other patrons in the next book.

PS My husband insists giving his review based on the action he gets from a book. He never reads them, but likes the fringe benefit. He says 3 stars (cough, cough).

Holy $hit!

I feel as though I am on a precipice and so worked up and begging, just like Ella. I am currently fanning myself trying to figure out how I can make it two more weeks for the next book. Shaking, like a drug addict….

The story line is well paced and the characters are so complex and well developed. I would love to tell you all about Tobias, Preston and Ella, but I do believe this is one series you just must #OneClick and buy.

Trust me! You will be begging for the next book too!

Mistresses Lovell and Cole…
