Ash Hobbs is king of Wall Street. He’s big and powerful, successful, and incredibly sexy.

He’s the most notorious bad boy on Broadway. He changes women faster than he changes his underwear, and he’s got his sights set on me.

He’s exactly the kind of guy I could get involved with—if I was in the market to get involved with anybody—which I’m not.

He’s also my brother’s best friend and business partner. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, he doesn’t know it, but he’s about to meet his match.

He’s a shark and I’m a shark, so I guess we’re two of a kind. I change guys faster than I change my underwear.

I chew up guys and spit them out. I’ve got a different man in my bed every night, and tonight it’s Ash’s turn.

One night of wild sex later—could this be a New York dream come true, or the greatest disaster ever?

MY REVIEW

Wow!  Another wham bam thank you mam great read by Cassnadra.  Woman can do one night stands too.  This is a whole new approach to the playboys.  Yep that’s right.  Watch out boys!  Women can be players too.

In this book Marlee is visiting her brother Colton for the holidays. While she is in his office waiting for him to finish up some work so they can go to lunch, in walks a sexy as hell man!  Damn he is fine!  And she immediately sets her sights on him.

Ash is in the middle of talking to his partner and bff Colton when something catches his eye.  He looks up and finds the most beautiful and sexy as hell woman sitting in Colton’s office.  Who is this?  Colton notices Ash is staring and he tells him no way!  Stay away from his sister!!  He warns Ash against hitting on his sister or he will do him bodily harm.

Later Colton warns his sister to stay away from Ash.  He tells her he is a womanizer and player.  A love em and leave em kind of guy, who will definitely hurt her.  But does she listen, nooooooo!!!! She doesn’t.

Marlee goes into a bar and literally picks him up.  She tells him to take her home and fuck her.  Well let’s just say that was one hot as sin night full of naughtiness and dominating alpha male.  A little BDSM. Wow!  He was the best sex she ever had.

When Ash gets the cold shoulder after their hot night, he does everything he can to get her alone again.  When she has ignored him for several days he shows up unannounced and talks her into going carolling with him.  He confesses his feelings only to have her turn him down.  How can he convince her to give him a shot at forever?

This book is the perfect definition of a quickie.  This book is a fast paced read full of humor, love and hot ass sex.  So break out the condoms, because you will need the protection this book is so hot.

BLAZE | BOOK BLITZ

Blaze
Sierra Cross
(Spelldrift: Coven of Fire, #4)
Publication date: December 13th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

The demon is still out there.

Tenebris—the monster who killed my parents, violated my mind, and destroyed my coven sister Callie—has gone into deep hiding. I won’t rest until I find him and personally take him down.

Luckily the vampires have a bead on him, and they want me along for the demon-hunting ride. But with his brand new skinsuit and the magic amulet he stole from a witch, Tenebris is more powerful than ever. I’m not dumb enough to go up against my mortal enemy without the Coven of Fire at my side. The vampires, however, flat-out refuse to let my “non-traditional” coven in on the job. It seems that no one in the magicborn community respects us, no matter how many lives we save or how many sacrifices we make.

Callie was one sacrifice too many.

So screw the vampires. Forget working within a system that won’t accept us. Matt, Asher, Liv, and I may be misfits, but we’re a coven. And our coven is not complete without Callie. Somehow, we’ve got to track her down and find a way to save her. Then, we’re going to avenge our loved ones and take down Tenebris once and for all…but we’ll do it as a coven. As a family. One witch for all and all for one, no magicborn left behind.

EXCERPT:

“I’m sorry, Director,” I said. “Something’s come up. I’m afraid I can’t get on that plane.”

Bonaventura spun and sucked in a breath in that almost soundless way only a vampire could. He’d already thought I was a flaky amateur, now he probably thought I was a nutcase. Even Matt and Asher were looking at me like I’d lost my mind. I could really see how it might look that way.

Didn’t matter. Callie was my coven sister, and she needed us to save her. Family first.

“So am I to understand,” Bonaventura’s voice dripped with condescension, “that after begging me to help with the amulet, insisting you be present when Tenebris is killed, you’re now refusing to accompany me?”

“Believe me, if it weren’t absolutely necessary, I wouldn’t do this.” My magic was begging to come to my fingertips. But starting a brawl with a vampire seemed like one of those “poor life choices” they’d warned me about in middle school.

Bonaventura composed himself with a smooth exhalation, then turned to Liv. “I suppose you’ll have to do.” Another finger-snap. “Let’s go.”

“It’s a coven matter that has come up,” Liv said. “None of us can go.”

“We’ll send you the deactivation spell,” I said, not caring in the least that I was giving up the only leverage we had with the Director.

If Bonaventura could’ve killed me with a look, I’d be bleeding out right now. I’d seen what he’d done to Wes, his own son. I got the feeling he was picturing doing worse to me. “Not an option, Ms. Hill.” The terminal dropped ten degrees in an instant. “One of you two witches will board the plane. Or I will release you from your pitiful existence.”

Strange what a difference a little blood could make. More than scaring me, those words hurt. I’d disappointed him. I took a deep breath and shrugged off his compulsion. Vampire mind tricks aside, I owed no loyalty to Bonaventura. And as badly as I wanted to take Tenebris down, I needed to do this more. “If you want to try,” I said, “have at it.”

Matt, Liv, and Asher had already flanked me, ready to fight at my side even if they didn’t fully understand. Bonaventura’s crew did the same for him. The Director narrowed his eyes, looking at each of us in turn. I couldn’t decipher the calculations he was making behind those ice blue eyes. “Know this, witch—and this goes for your whole coven—when our paths cross again it will not be a friendly encounter.”

My heart was racing. Did I really want to make the director of the Council Suprema my enemy? But what choice did I have? We had to follow up on that phone call. We had to find my coven sister. “If that’s how you want to play it.” I hoped there’d be a way to make things right with Bonaventura later.

The Director turned on his heel and all the other vampires followed suit. I watched as they disappeared through the gate door.

“Alix, luv.” Asher turned to me, his voice sweet as saccharine. “Be so kind as to tell me why I just voluntarily incurred the wrath of the one of most powerful vampires in the northern hemisphere?”

Better Dead
Pamela Kopfler
(A B&B Spirits Mystery #1)
Published by: Kensington
Publication date: December 26th 2017
Genres: Adult, Mystery

As the owner of a charming Louisiana bed and breakfast, Holly Davis believes in Southern hospitality—but she draws the line at welcoming the ghost of her cheating husband . . .

Burl Davis checked out of this life a little earlier than expected—before Holly could serve him with divorce papers over his extramarital flings. Unfortunately, it was not before he nearly bankrupted her beloved B&B, Holly Grove, a converted plantation that has been in her family for generations. Holly would never wish anyone dead, but three months later she’s feeling a lot more relief than grief.

Until Burl’s ghost appears as an unwelcome guest. Before his spirit can move on, her not-so-dearly departed needs Holly’s human help to bust up the drug smuggling ring he was involved with. She has reservations, to say the least, but agrees to assist him if he’ll make a show of haunting the B&B to draw in visitors. But when Holly’s former love, Jack McCann, mysteriously resurfaces in town and checks in, she has to wonder if her B&B is big enough for the ghost of her husband and the very real physical presence of her old flame . . .

She can stir up a roux, mix a cocktail, shoot anything (as long as it doesn’t have eyes), and loves swapping stories. Putting words on the page keeps her alligator mouth from overloading her hummingbird heinie in real life. It doesn’t hurt to be married to a saint who is an attorney either. She marks her time on earth by the lives of the dogs she has loved and who often show up in her stories. Her current fur baby is a seventy-pound pup in black. He thinks he’s a fearless hunter when he’s not pretending he’s a lapdog.

Pamela lives in South Louisiana where the spirits are restless, the food is spicy, and the living is divine.

MY REVIEW

Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating the most popular boy in school.  The “It Boy”  Brendon.  He is that boy who all the girls drool over and throw themselves at.  He is from a rich and powerful family, who have his whole life planned out.

Emme struggles with her relationship with Brendon.  Her last boyfriend cheated on her and she really has a low self-esteem.  She never feels that she is good enough for Brendon.  Of course it doesn’t help that his ex Lauren is always around and throwing herself at him or all the other females who walk up and flirt openly in front of her with him.  Drama!!  That is the best way to describe it.  High School Drama.

Emma not only struggles throughout the book with her issues in her relationship, but with school work and family issues as well.  Brendon doesn’t really know or understand her issues completely and I think this is what causes some of the issues.  Brendon really is to nice for his own good and his guilt causes some of his problems that hurt their relationship.  If Emme and Brendon would have just trusted each other and calmed down enough to talk to one another they could have avoided most of their issues and been unstoppable.  But nooooo can’t do that.  They had to go and try to make each other jealous only making things worse in the long run.

I tell you reading this book felt like a tennis match.  Emme and Brendon were back and forth, back and forth.  And Emme’s emotions were all over the place.  She really has a lot of issues to deal with and sometimes she was her own worst enemy.

The book held my attention and was a good read.  The characters were fun and entertaining, even though there were a couple I wanted to punch. (Lauren, Brooke & Margaux)  oops I wasn’t suppose to name any names was I?  lol  I did enjoy it, but not quite a fan of all the drama.  I guess that is just my persona.  A great read that gives readers a glimpse into the life of a teenager trying to be herself, but scared.

Nora Ash
(Ancient Blood Prequel)
Publication date: December 30th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Love is a curse.

Three hundred years ago, Warin lost his humanity.

The night he met Thea was the night he lost his soul.

For more than two hundred years, Warin has roamed the wilds with only his blood brother Aleric for company, terrorizing villages and feeding on human life. Sating his dark hunger was all he ever cared for…

Until she crossed his path.

From the moment he meets his beautiful Thea, her emerald eyes and tender heart call to him like a siren’s song. But she is human, and unless Warin can uncover the truth of their connection, he’ll never be able to possess her the way he so desperately desires.

Enlisting the help of the Ancients of his kind always comes with a cost. Especially when Thea is revealed for what she really is: either a gift from the gods…

…or a curse on his bloodline.
