Angela Watts loved being the life of a party. Until one night changed everything.

Now, she just wants a fresh start. With one semester left of college, she’s intent on finishing it and moving on. That means no more distractions and no more boys. Especially womanizer’s like Jackson. His cocky smile and mesmerizing eyes ignite her like none other. Which is exactly why she vows to stay away from him. Except he’s always there when she needs him. His hungry kisses and fiery touch inflame her. She hadn’t wanted a relationship, but in his arms, she is safe again.

Jackson Clark f*cked up. He failed the only job he’d had, and that failure ruined Angela’s life. Even though he didn’t have a hand in what happened, he’s drowning in guilt. Then, he sees Angela again, and he becomes the protector he should have been. The heat between them is undeniable. For the first time he doesn’t only want a tight little body and juicy mouth, but her heart too.

But one thought lingers: if Angela knew the role Jackson played in her downfall, would she still want him?

Kiss Me Now, the third book in the Brewhouse series by Holly Dodd, begins at the Fraternity party which was first presented in the second book, Pin Me Down.  This scene is currently described from Jackson and Angela’s point of view as opposed to Regi, Mia, and her sister’s in Pin Me Down.  Holly Dodd did a fabulous job of writing this book as a standalone, yet still captivating to those that read the first two books in the series!

When I began Kiss Me Now, I did not have the highest reguard for Jackson, but WOW… I totally fell for him. I love a man who can own up to his mistakes and learn from them.  He became respectful and supportive of Angela and grew up from his playboy bachelor days.

All the characters are well developed, complex and portrayed truthfully. The story line is perfectly paced and I believe Ms. Dodd wrote an incredible story… one that I will be rereading soon!

A must read!

Relationships aren’t his thing, and they never crossed his mind until he met Jo. She’s everything Kevin doesn’t know he wants. She makes him tingle, and not just below the belt. But Jo’s not into it, she’s the only girl who doesn’t want to ride the Harris express. They’re just friends until Jo asks him to help her with some sexual education.

One kiss, one taste, he’s hooked. Now Kevin has to convince Jo that he’s the perfect man for her. He craves being a permanent fixture not only in her bed, but in her life. Will she give him the chance?

Warning: This sexy romance novel contains a fed-up virgin who thinks she knows what she wants, and a dominant alpha male guiding her down a kinky path.

This is a standalone story set in an interconnecting series with a HEA and NO cheating.

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!

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!
