Mia Reynolds isn’t interested in relationships. She refuses to follow the same troubled path her codependent mother traveled. Now that she’s graduated from college and has a real job, paying her loads of money, the world is hers for the plucking. She doesn’t need a man at her side, keeping her from having fun. Especially Regi, whose brandy brown eyes and gravelly voice have haunted her since high-school. Together their gunpowder and fire, explosive but dangerous. She’s only willing to give him her body, but never her heart.

Regi O’Connell has been concealing his heartbreak for years. Despite the endless amount of women in his bed, there’s only one whose claimed his heart and soul. But Mia refuses to give him a chance outside of the sheets. He’s her dirty little secret, one she has no plans on revealing to the world. Sometimes all it takes is one incident, one flash of regret, to change who you were, and become who you are meant to be. Mia’s heart is unyielding, a lock-box without a key. She needs to let him in, or let him go. He’s giving it one more shot to show the women of his dreams that love doesn’t make you weak, but stronger than steel.

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!

Giving It Up

(Brewhouse #1)



Jolene “Jo” Miller has been panting over her crush for years. He’s everything she wants: a gentle giant with kick-ass ambition and a rock-hard body that she’s dying to ride. The problem is, she’s stuck in his friend zone due to one embarrassing reason – she’s untouched.

Jo’s crush has no interest in popping her cherry. She’ll need to take some drastic measures to get her crush’s attention, and Jo has the perfect candidate to punch her v-card.

Kevin Harris is an unapologetic manwh*re. With his panty-melting smile and chiseled body, he has his choice of tits and ass. His motto: hit ’em hard and leave them aching for more. 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!
