Synopsis


He was on a collision course.

… I had paved my way

He answered to no one.
… I respected authority
He wanted me.
… I despised him
He didn’t take no for an answer.
... NO!

When freelance photographer, Corinne Lee, is required to visually document the nationwide tour of Wild Nights Male Revue, she finds herself in a world of near-naked, testosterone-fuelled men on stage—not her photographic muse of choice. She also finds herself in the arms of Josh, the revue’s star performer.

Josh Adams thrives on the limelight, the stage and, most of all, the attention of women who endlessly throw themselves at him. He dances sex, speaks sex, breathes sex … is sex! Josh lives for sex, but never with the same woman. 

When both opinionated and headstrong characters are closely thrust together in a lust-ridden and sexually-charged environment, which of the two will break first?
Will Josh realise that Corinne could be the exception to his ‘no strings’ rule? Or will Corinne let go of the fantasy of finding Mr One and Only?


My Review

“Why do you fuck so many women?” 

“Because I like to.” 

I stared at him. “That’s it?” 

“Yep. I like to fuck. I like to fuck women. They like to fuck me. So … 
we fuck.”
Are you ready for the show?

Well pad your panties ladies because Wild Nights Revue is coming and it’s an experience you do not want to miss. You’ll see soon to be brides, old grannies, wild and crazy attention seekers- all just waiting for that famous ear whisper.

When Cori gets roped into a job photographing this all male revue show she wants nothing more than the three months she is stuck on tour with them to pass. She doesn’t know how much she can take of the man-whoring and arrogance of some of the guys…well one guy in particular.



Josh is probably the biggest man-whore around. He is cocky and arrogant and so full of himself that just the thought of him repulses Cori. So why-even after she finds him f*cking a chick backstage does she have to keep reminding herself of all the reasons she shouldn’t want to be just another meaningless notch to him?

“Sweet Jesus, that thing looked delicious! But let’s face it, like babies, not all cocks were gorgeous. Some were weird looking and, at first glance, all you could do was mentally will your lips to part and say the words ‘Mm…yum’ when really you were thinking ‘er…um’.

Josh is your typical bad boy- drop dead gorgeous and ultimate ladies’ man. He doesn’t do commitments or relationships. He is all about the single act of sex. And boy is he good at it. Maybe a little too good. I mean even I was getting a little stomach churning just thinking about how many women he has had to f*cked before to have a tongue and moves like he does.

But when he sets eyes on Cori- something in him breaks. He is confused by his new ‘feelings’ but wants nothing more than to explore them- with her. To see if he is really as f*cked up as he thinks he is.

There’s more to life than sex, you know.” 



“Yeah, there is, sweetheart. Sex with me.” 

Josh leaned closer, his breath hot on my neck. 
“And you’re gonna experience that real soon.” 

I turned toward him. 
Bad idea. 
Terrible mistake. 
Our faces were centimetres from touching. 

“No I’m not.” 

“Oh, yes, you are. In fact, I’m going to make it my sole mission before this tour has ended to get you on top of my cock. And I’ll let you in on a little secret, sweetheart … you’re gonna love it.”


This was a crazy sexy story with a lot of Magic Mike type dancing and holy mother effing shitballs you will be wishing you were in that crowd screaming and panting right along with all the other ladies. Josh and Cori have a sort of instant hate/love relationship. Josh wants to more than just make Cori his one night stand but convincing this level headed woman of that is another story. Cori has built up walls and doesn’t believe in meaningless sex so she refuses Josh at every turn- but only she can take so much. 
This story will have you glued to your kindle. Its sexy, funny, playful and yet a bit somber. I absolutely love KM Golland and she is one of the only authors I will read when I suspect there will be cheating. It doesn’t matter because KM has a way to make you love and feel for the characters regardless. Both Josh and Cori’s actions pissed me off and made me sad at the same time.

If you are in the mood for a sexy insta-love type, fast paced story then I would definitely recommend Revue! Its extremely sexy and flirtatious. I would have liked to see a couple more sex scenes and maybe a little more depth to the characters. We got some background on them but not as much as I would have liked. That said- I still loved Josh and Cori and KM’s writing was fabulous as always. I love the humor she writes with. It has a way of making the shittiest situations lighter and bearable.

Swimsuits, sun, surfing, and a sexy Samoan. 


I headed to the island of Oahu, Hawaii to meet with cutting-edge swimsuit fashion designer, Angel D’Amico, to serve as head model for the “Beauty Comes in All Sizes” swimsuit campaign. The designer wants to show the world that beauty is not just a size two. My curves got me into this gig, and, the moment I laid eyes on my modeling “partner,” I’d never been happier with my buxom form. 



Tai Niko had everything the average man lacked. Height, broad shoulders, a nipped in waist, square pecs, tree trunk thighs, and a look that rivaled “The Rock.” The part that made me drool and weakened my knees, was the thick, intricate tribal tattoos running down the entire left side of his muscled frame from shoulder to ankle. The design was unlike anything I’d ever seen, and I couldn’t wait to trace the tips of my fingers over every inch. 



*** 



In the fifth book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is sent to Oahu, HI. Still on her mission to save her father, she embraces the model life to prove beauty really does come in all sizes. 



Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. The stories will feature Mia’s journey as an escort to twelve clients in twelve different locations. 


Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

My Review
This month Mia's client brings her to the romantic island of Hawaii!

And holy shit are all things sexy and Samoan.

Holy fark! was this installment all, kinds of hot.

I’m talking BAM! Instant hot sex scenes!!!

Upon arriving at the island for a modeling gig this month Mia is instantly smitten with the sexy beast of a man know as Tai.

Tai Niko is just YES!

I just love Mia and as each month passes I fall for her spunk and sweetness just that wee bit more. 

God, I want her to find an amazing man she can keep.

Her ability to put herself out there in each new situation makes for such a fun and flirty read. I love getting so se how she copes from month to month. Each installment is better and better I swear.

May was a perfect edition that gave us a bit more insight to her relationship with her sister and bestie, whom I just love! I also loved seeing her from a special bond with Niko. 

I loved May and seeing Mia indulge is some island fun with Tai, but in true Mia fashion is all about the easy escape and ensuring another’s happiness.


I cannot wait for June!

***Re-Release Day Blitz Review, Excerpt & Giveaway*** Rough by Skye Warren

Title: Rough

Blurb 

I’m a cautionary tale. A statistic. A victim. A single teenage mother from the poor part of town. Most of the time I’m too busy working and struggling to care what people think. Survival doesn’t come easy. 

I have a dark secret, a pressure valve, a rare moment just for myself. On these nights I visit a club. There I find men who give me what I need. 

Men like Colin. 

But he wants more than a few stolen hours. He demands more than my body. He wants my heart and soul—my happily ever after. I never thought I’d be Cinderella. I never thought a man that rough could be my prince.



Our Review

Rough is my first Skye Warren read and I was glued to my seat while reading the start of Allie and Colin’s story. A quick read that I devoured in one sitting, their story is equal parts mystery and intrigue interspersed with sweet seduction and panty melting sexy times. With mostly serious themes, some well placed laugh out loud moments made for a stellar reading experience.

Allie realizes she’s pregnant after violently losing her virginity to one of the two people she actually trusted in her life, her friend Andrew. When her father finds out she’s pregnant and kicks her out, she’s left all alone with only her best friend Shelly and the clothes on her back.

Fast forward two years and she, her daughter and her best friend Shelly are living in a rundown apartment building trying to make ends meet working at a bakery. Once or twice a month she goes to a club to have anonymous, rough and dirty sex as a way to cope with her past and as one of the only ways to feel close to another person even if only for a little bit. Never getting too close to another man again has been her goal since the men in her life have never been trustworthy.

Enter the dark and mysterious Colin. They meet one night after Allie spots him at the club and suspects that he is the perfect kind of guy to give her exactly what she craves. But Colin doesn’t act the way she expects when it comes to sex with her. Confused and a little wary of her strong feelings for Colin, Allie tries to put him out of her mind. But when she makes another trip to the same club a few weeks later and a different guy takes her idea of rough too far, Colin is there to save her. This starts a relationship that Allie is unsure of but wants nonetheless.

Throughout much of the book, it seems Colin only speaks very briefly and not very often. He is so mysterious that I still have no real grasp on who he is or what he wants with Allie. It seems obvious that he is attracted to her and does genuinely care about her and her daughter, but there remains pieces of his very closed off life, his suspicious family and his odd jobs that don’t add up. He also seems to know things about Allie that she hasn’t told him, and his life outside of Allie is a complete black hole of information.

With Colin’s reluctance to bare much of himself to Allie and the odd ending to the story, I’m left with more questions than answers. That is really the only reason this isn’t a least a star higher. The writing was excellent, Allie was a great heroine being both strong and smart,  and add to that the suspense of the story being brilliantly written and Skye Warren has a new fan. I’m anxiously awaiting Hard, the next book in Allie and Colin’s story and hoping that I get the answers I’m desperately needing.

Excerpt 

He walked me backward, and we made out against the round fake-wood table, his hands running over my sides, my back. Avoiding the good parts like we were two horny teenagers in our parents’ basements, new to this. I shuddered at the thought. This was all wrong. His hands were too light. I was half under him already, my hips cradling his, so I surged up and nipped at his lip. Predictably his body jerked, and he thrust his hips down onto me.

Yes. That’s what I need. I softened my body, surrendering to him.

“Bed,” he murmured against my lips.

We stripped at the same time, both eager. I wanted to see his body, to witness what he offered me, but it was dark in the room. Then he kissed me back onto the bed, and there was no more time to wonder. The cheap bedspread was rough and cool against my skin. His hands stroked over my breasts and then played gently with my nipples.

My body responded, turning liquid, but something was wrong.

I’d had this problem before. Not everyone wanted to play rough, but I was surprised that I’d misread him. His muscles were hard, the pads of his fingers were calloused. I didn’t know how he could touch me so softly. Everything about him screamed that he could hurt me, so why didn’t he?

I wanted him to have his nasty way with me, but every sweet caress destroyed the illusion. My fantasy was to let him do whatever he wanted with me, but not this.

“Harder,” I said. “I need it harder.”

Instead his hands gentled. The one that had been holding my breast traced the curve around and under.

I groaned in frustration. “What’s wrong?”

He reached down, still breathing heavily, and pressed a finger lightly to my cunt, then stroked upward through the moisture. I gasped, rocking my hips to follow his finger.

“You like this,” he said.

Yes, I liked it. I was undeniably aroused but too aware. I needed the emptiness of being taken. “I like it better rough.”

Colin frowned. My eyes widened at the ferocity of his expression.

In one smooth motion he flipped me onto my stomach. I lost my breath from the surprise and impact. His left hand slid under my body between my legs and cupped me. His right hand fisted in my hair, pulling my head back. His erection throbbed beside my ass in promise. I wanted to beg him to fuck me, but all I could do was gasp. He didn’t need to be told, though, and ground against me, using my hair as a handle.

That small pain on my scalp was perfection, sharp and sweet. Numbness spread through me, as did relief.

The pain dimmed. My arousal did too, but that was okay. I was only vaguely aware of him continuing to work my body from behind.

I went somewhere else in my mind. I’d stay that way all night.

At least that’s what usually happened. Not this time. Instead I felt light strokes on my hair, my arms, my back. His cock pulsed hot against my thigh, but he didn’t try to put it inside me, not in any of the places it would almost fit. His hands on me didn’t even feel sexual. He petted me, and I arched into his caress.

“Why did you stop?” I meant it to come out demanding, but instead I sounded weak. I hated sounding weak, especially about sex. He may be the one with the cock and the fists, but I called the shots. I had to.

“Allie, shhh. It’s okay.” He was trying to soothe me, and it was working. He turned me back over and began to kiss me, still murmuring words against my lips. “I’ll give it to you. Don’t worry. Relax.” More words than he’d spoken all night.

I was lost, my emotions all jumbled up from my arousal and my high and subsequent low, at the mercy of this stranger.

What’s happening to me? I needed to get back to something I knew. I wanted him to fuck me, to be inside me, to center me. I whimpered, hoping he’d understand. “Shhh.” He arranged my arms and legs so that they were splayed open on the bed and then kissed his way down my stomach.

Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There’s just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

Until a run-in with a nonplussed, package-wielding PA throws everything off balance.

Ali Jones is having a craptastic life. Her grandmother died, leaving her homeless, penniless, and alone, and her boyfriend left her for a tramp who takes her clothes off for money. That’s why when she lands her dream job at a record company it seems like it’s too good to be true.

Because it is.

Slapped with an ultimatum, Ali must decide if facing the horror of the unemployment line is a fate worse than going on the road with four rowdy rockers hell-bent on making her life misery.

He’s adored by millions.

She’s not even loved by her cat. Can they ignore their hatred long enough to survive the tour from hell? Or will their chemistry force everything to come crashing down around them?













Excerpt

My vision is partly obstructed by Ali, but the sight of her head bobbing as she takes him in her mouth is all I need to know what’s going on. Levi meets my gaze across the limo. There’s gloating there—that much is obvious—but there’s also understanding. When you spend as much time together as we do, you come to know your bandmates pretty well. For all his talk, he’s not as big of a douche as he claims to be. He may not ever sleep with the same woman more than once—with the exception of Ali, I guess—but I know he’s not immune to the loneliness our lifestyle creates. It’s strange how you can be adored by millions and yet completely alone all at the same time.

He slides his hand into her hair and closes his eyes, throwing his head back against the seat.

“Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck,” he whispers, and then he gathers her hair to the side and shifts her body so that my view is completely unobstructed. I watch as she works her hands up his shaft in time with her mouth. He doesn’t attempt to fuck the back of her throat and make her choke on it, the way we both had that first night we fucked her. Instead, his touch is gentle. Reverent.

It makes me crazy, and hot as fucking hell. I shift uncomfortably, adjusting my cock within my jeans. I don’t make a move towards them, though I want to. I want to bury myself inside her and mark her as mine, but at this point the lines are so fucking blurred it doesn’t matter whom she belongs to. Him. Me. The both of us, or neither one.

I lean forward, taking a glass from the shelf and a crystal decanter filled with amber liquor, and I pour myself a drink, and then I slide back into the leather to watch.

“Play with yourself, Red,” he whispers.

“No.”

“Do it,” I say, and she turns around to glare at me. I can’t tell if she’s disappointed I’m not joining in, or if she forgot I was even here.

“I don’t want—”

“Why are you suddenly so embarrassed?” I say sharply, swigging back more of the scotch than I should.

“I’m not embarrassed. I’d actually rather that you joined in.”

“I’m watching,” I say, eyeing her coolly over my glass. She scowls at me a moment and then she kneels up, steadying herself with one hand on Levi’s thigh. She wriggles her skirt up over her hips and bends over. Everything is on display as she takes him in her mouth again. I close my eyes, not wanting to watch her on her knees in front of him, her head bent low, her full fuck-me lips wrapped around Levi’s cock. I feel as if I’m on a ride that’s spinning out of control and I can’t find a way off. I can’t make it stop. And I so badly want it to stop.

Love endures all things.

Darby McKenzie’s heart started beating funny the day that she met Trace Chamberlain. She was four, he was five, and that meeting altered the course of both their lives forever.

Trace was born into a nightmare. Before meeting Darby and her family, the only love he ever knew was that of his twin brother. The two of them endured years of abuse that left scars. The permanent kind.

For Trace, meeting Darby was like catching a rainbow. She exploded into his life in a pop of Technicolor that awakened his senses. She wasn’t just his best friend—she was his life. His touchstone, his safety, his heart—she was everything.

Darby had been through it all with Trace and her love for him never wavered for a second. But no amount of love could make Trace believe that he was worthy of her. Knowing that she deserved better, Trace pushed her away, when what he really wanted was to pull her closer. Emotionally destroyed and bitter from the back and forth, Darby finally let go and decided to move on.

Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to understand that you need to change. Realizing that losing Darby means losing everything, Trace sets out to fight for the love of his life.

Is it too late for Darby and Trace to have a happily ever after?



Excerpt

“We can talk every day on the phone or by text and Skype, right?” he asked anxiously.
I knew if I said yes, he’d call every day. Distance would be useless if I didn’t put my foot down.

“Once a week,” I told him. “Pick a day and we’ll talk then. This is our time to redefine our relationship.”

“I don’t want anything to change,” he complained. “I don’t want to see less of you or spend six fucking days a week not hearing your voice. Even thinking about doing it makes me feel sick.”

I understood how he felt because I was experiencing all the same anxiety, but I stood my ground.

“This is the way it needs to be for a while,” I answered. “You can like it or lump it, but I’m not backing down. Call me next Friday.”

When I went to leave, I let him hug me because friends hugged. I counted off five seconds and then pulled away. He tried to hold tighter, but I wiggled away. The benefits of being strong meant that he couldn’t keep me where I didn’t want to be.

“We can’t hug?” he asked in a panicked tone.

“We can,” I said calmly. “When I hug Tristan, it’s probably a two or three second process. I gave you five. Friends don’t hug for minutes at a time unless there’s a crisis.”

“This is a crisis! You’re fucking leaving me.”

I knew then that drawing it out any more was only going to make things worse. There were times when cutting something short was the way to go, and that moment was one of them.

“This isn’t a crisis,” I refuted calmly. “This is a reality. I’ll talk to you next week. Take care of yourself.”

I kept my chin up as I walked away, and I ignored him when he called out my name three separate times.
