REVIEW: Pick Your Pleasure by Jayne Rylon

***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.***


Linley is the CEO of her own company and she’s tired of boring dates with men only interested in her money. She decides to shake things up by visiting a sex club, but quickly realizes she’s out of her league. She’s presented with two potential guides for the evening and they both turn her on within minutes of meeting them. YOU get to choose which of them leads her through the night.


I never really read those “Choose Your Own Adventure” type stories as a kid – I thought them a little weird. Upon discovering that an author I enjoyed reading had written a romance book in such a fashion was surprisingly intriguing. Having read it, it’s actually really cool.

Both men are delicious and the club they’re in has a world of opportunities. There’s generally only one love scene on whatever path you choose and it makes for a pretty short read, but there’s plenty of tension, teasing, and it’s all hot. Whatever mood you’re in, there’s a choice for that, and the best part is that no matter what, you’re guaranteed a happy ending.

Not your average romance book or club experience, Pick Your Pleasure is sure to be a sexy and fun read, and pretty different than anything you’ve probably read before. I recommend any contemporary romance fan give it a shot!

REVIEW: Captured by SJ Harper


Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf.
Their mission is redemption.

Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way.

Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman.

When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.

This book kept me glued to the page. The case reminds me of an episode or two of Criminal Minds and the plot was easy, but not too easy. I wanted more from the paranormal element, but there’s enough to definitely pique interest. I love the dynamic between Zach and Emma. I can’t wait to read more of those two! This book was actually written after book 1 in the series, which I haven’t read, but feels like a great introduction to the characters and world.

Bottom Line:

Captured is a fun prequel with a good balance of mystery, romance, excitement, and danger. It’s emotional due to the nature of the case and will definitely leave you wanting more in the best way!
