REVIEW: Get Me Off by Penny Wylder

Summary:

No guy has ever been able to get me off. It was my little secret.

Until I accidentally told the whole world.

Spilling something so humiliating on my social media is bad enough, I never expected anyone to actually message me about it. Especially not someone as smug and sexy as Heath "O Maker" James.

He tells me he doesn't just THINK he can get me off—he knows it.

As hot as he is, he's a total stranger. I shouldn't give him the time of day.

But the more he talks... the more he tells me all the dirty things he wants to do to me...

The more I can't say no.

And once Heath gets his way, I'll be only screaming one word: Yes!

Title:  Get Me Off
Series:  N/A
Book #: N/A
Author:  Penny Wylder
Approximate Book Length:  100 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Explicit

Thoughts:

This was a fast fun read. I felt what she felt and got hot flashes right along with her. Heath is a pretty compelling character that I took a little bit of time to like once I got past his history. Their chemistry jumps off the page and they are actually pretty cute together. My only issue was with how quickly she let herself sleep with him. I would’ve held out longer, but I’m not actually in her shoes.

Bottom Line:

Get Me Off is a quick sexy read that had me glued to the page. Pretty awesome novella!

COVER REVEAL: Cowboys Don't Come Out by Tara Lain


Cowboys Don't Come Out
by Tara Lain

Blurb:
Rand McIntyre settles for good enough. He loves his small California ranch, raising horses, and teaching riding to the kids he adores—but having kids of his own and someone to love means coming out, and that would jeopardize everything he’s built. Then, despite his terror of flying, he goes on a holiday to Hana, Hawaii with his parents and meets the dark and mysterious Kai Kealoha, a genuine Hawaiian cowboy. Rand takes to Kai’s kid brother and sister as much as he drools over Kai, but the guy sports more prickles than a horned toad, and more secrets than the exotic land he comes from.

Kai’s earned his privacy and lives to protect his “kids.” He ought to stay away from the big, handsome cowboy for everyone’s sake—but since the guy’s just a haole on a short vacation, how much damage can he do? When all of Kai’s worst fears and Rand’s darkest nightmares come true at once, there’s not much chance for two cowboys who can’t—or won’t—come out.

Excerpt


By now the place was jumping. People had been squeezing into the cracks ever since they arrived, and the music clearly signaled dancing time. Couples bopped out onto the floor and the Texas two-step, Hawaiian style, began.

Rand slugged back a mouthful of beer. “You wanna?”

“You can dance? Hell yes.”

She was out of the booth and onto the floor in record time. Apparently she didn’t get enough dancing. She’s come to the right place. Dancing R Us. He took her in the semiclose two-step hold and set off onto the floor.

After a couple of twirls and close-hold side-by-sides, she grinned up at him. “You really can dance.”

“As advertised.” That might be the only thing about him that was.

A few people had come to the edge of the dance floor and were clapping Rand and Julie on. Rand released his inner exhibitionist and put on a little show. Julie had no problem keeping up. Suddenly a loud whistle cut through the music, and someone yelled, “Go Kai!”

Rand looked around and saw a guy dancing with a pretty redhead. Whoa. Maybe he should say a pretty guy dancing with a redhead—tallish, lean, with caramel skin that glowed in the soft light, and below-the-ear-length black hair that swayed under his cowboy hat as he danced. And shit, could that guy dance. Graceful, sure-footed, and sexy. Holy hell.

“Hey, can’t stand the competition?”

“What?” Julie grinned at him. Damn, he’d stopped dancing to watch. “Oh, hell no.”

The band segued into something far more up-tempo and fiddle-based. Most of the dancers gave up, but not the beautiful guy. He just stepped it up and out, twirling his partner across the floor. Rand took up the gauntlet, adding in some line-dance steps. Julie picked it up fast, and they held their own. Rand glanced at the other couple and got a stare from Mr. Gorgeous, who filled out his jeans like sin in blue denim, his ass rounding the back and worn fabric cupping his package in front. Stop looking, asshole, before you get a very embarrassing boner.

REVIEW: Rendezvous with Yesterday by Dianne Duvall

Summary:

Modern-day bounty hunter Bethany Bennett helps her brother track two fugitives to a forest outside of Houston, Texas. But what should have been a routine apprehension of two bail skippers spirals out of control and ends in violence. After Beth and her brother are both seriously injured, a mysterious figure suddenly looms over her. And, when the smoke clears, Beth finds herself not only in another place, but in another time.

As Lord Robert, Earl of Fosterly, attempts to identify and track down the nameless enemy who has been plaguing his lands and people with violence, the most peculiar woman stumbles into his path. Small, vulnerable, yet possessed of a bold, fiery spirit and wicked sense of humor, she persists in dubbing Robert and his men members of something called a medieval reenactment group . . . until she sees his castle and labels herself insane. It seems bounty hunter Bethany Bennett has come to him from the future, bringing with her laughter and chaos, swiftly winning the hearts of his people and inspiring within him a love he thought he would never experience again. But when Robert discovers a way for her to return to her time, will the love they share be enough to keep them together?

Title:  Rendezvous with Yesterday
Series:  Gifted Ones
Book #: 2
Author:  Dianne Duvall
Approximate Book Length:  406 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate

Thoughts:

As usual, Dianne Duvall delivers an enchanting love story. I don’t normally like time travel stories, but this one worked for me. Nothing made me think “how does this not affect everything going forward?” That was largely due to the small number of people that end up knowing the truth and what ends up happening to Beth’s things from the future.

I loved Robert in Dillon’s book and it felt so good to see his story play out. It was incredibly neat to see the story after hearing about it from Marcus in Night Reigns from the Immortal Guardians series. I didn’t really know what to expect from Beth or from Marcus, knowing how he felt, and it was sweet and fun. Robert is very chivalrous yet teasing, and Beth is just plain willful, playful, and witty. They made an exciting couple.

I loved all the cameos and how things played out with the time travel. Beth’s discovery of what happened is about how I imagine the experience really would be. The romance was fun, sweet, and hot. The story arc regarding the threat to Robert’s land was necessary, but also a little anticlimactic. Overall though, it was such a compelling story that I couldn’t put it down.

Bottom Line:

Rendezvous with Yesterday is an endearing tale of love and family. It has it all – excitement, tears, suspense, and a little paranormal thrown in. I loved it and can’t wait for more!
