Kayla Wilson has her life together. For the most part. She has work she loves, great friends, and a friends-with-benefits arrangement which suits her just fine — she’s not interested in anything more. Although Oscar is sexy, fun and sweet, he’s way too immature to be taken seriously. The amazing sex is all she needs.
 
And her mother is getting married. In Paris! 
 
Everything is roses until Kayla realizes that her mother’s fiancé is her old high school nemesis’ father. Looks like the boy who made her teenage life hell is about to become her stepbrother.
 
Matt Moore is as beautiful, rich and cocky as ever. And so is his father, Mark. Can she trust either of them? Will Matt bring out all her insecurities again? Will Mark hurt her mother? Is her mother making the biggest mistake of her life? 
 
With Oscar’s and her friend Corrie’s help, Kayla is determined to break up the wedding.
 
Will she succeed or fail gloriously? Who will she hurt along the way? And who will she come to truly know and love in the end?
 
The third novel in the One Week series, One Week in Paris explores the bonds of friendship and family, painful pasts, and the beautiful city of Paris.
Author’s note: One Week in Paris contains explicit scenes and some coarse language — for adult audiences. The book can be read as a standalone, but if you plan to read the whole series, it is best to do so in chronological order to avoid spoilers.

I press a finger against his soft lips, not wanting him to ruin the moment. He lowers his head and presses his mouth against my collarbone. He traces a line of soft kisses along my skin, over my shoulder and down my arm. He’s usually so wild in bed, but I love it when he’s soft like this sometimes. He makes me feel loved, like no one else ever has. When I’m with Oscar, I feel beautiful and precious.


I want a turn too. I want to taste him, revel in him. I swing myself around and over him. I pull up his shirt and trail my tongue down the ridges of his abs. A low growl escapes him as he grabs my hair and pulls at it a little hard. When I reach his pants, I unbutton his fly slowly, teasing him. I dig into his boxers and wrap my mouth around him. I want to make him forget everything. I want to bring him pleasure. He throws his head back and groans loudly.


He wraps a hand tightly around my arm and pulls me up to him. “I want you,” he pleads. “I want to make love to you.”


I smile. “Yes, me too.”


Our lips meet again, and we slowly undress each other. I take in everything about him as I peel off his clothing; his smooth olive skin against my fair complexion, the hardness of him, and those soft spots too; his lower belly, his hands, his neck. I rake my hands through his thick locks, reveling in the softness of them, and when he stops for a beat and gazes into my eyes, I mark his beautiful almond shaped chocolate eyes to memory, afraid I might forget them one day. No matter what happens, I know I won’t.


He trails hot butterfly kisses along my collarbone and over the swells of my breasts, and his touch is soft and sweet as he gently peels off my polka-dot bra. My breasts are aching for his mouth. I arch my back, offering myself to him. When his tongue lands on my swollen nipple, I get lost in the pleasure of it. “I love the way you taste,” he breathes.


I throw my head back and reach for his hardness. I slip my finger under the waistband of his boxers, and slide them around his smooth hard ass. His moans gets lost in the warm underside of my breast. “I want to take all night,” I tell him. “I want this to last forever. No pain, no hurt, just pleasure.”


“Yes,” he whispers. “Pleasure… and love.”


“Yes,” I echo. “Pleasure and love.”


I long for us to be closer than we have ever been, to get completely lost inside each other, to forget about the world together. I pull off his boxers slowly, and he peels off my panties. When he sinks gently into me, I wrap my arm and legs around him and hold him tight. I don’t say the words, but I want him to know that he’s loved, that I’ll always be there for him.

No Limits can be read as a STANDALONE.

 

 
One of the most highly anticipated Hayes brothers…
 
Kyce
 
Let’s face it—relationships are hard work, full of compromises and sacrifices I’m not interested in doing. I have no desire to be in once since having my heart trampled on. Cliché, I know, but that’s why I stick to sex only.
Best way to live.
Except everything changes when I’m kissed by a stranger.
One night.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
Friends with benefits.
Only that wasn’t going to be enough.
Life couldn’t get any better…until I broke the rules.
When feelings begin to tangle inside me more than our bodies between the sheets, that’s when everything changed.
 
 
Jolie 
 
I hate men.
All of them.
Being left at the altar has left a nasty reminder in my heart to never get involved again. Swearing off men was easy after everything I’ve been through.
In a moment of desperation, I snatched a stranger by his arm and planted one on him.
It was perfect.
His lips.
The way he felt under my hands.
Everything about him was perfect.
Friends with exceptional benefits has never been so phenomenal.
He turned my life upside down.
Alone, I fell for him. Unrequited love is torture, especially when you have to keep it a secret, so you don’t lose him.
I messed up…I should’ve kept my stupid heart out of it. Now I’m scared of losing the one man I didn’t want to begin with.
 
There’s absolutely no way I can tell him how I feel…right?

Title: HWY 550
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: February 17th, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.

 

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1CFreya Barker does another stellar job with her latest in the Rock Point Series, HWY 550. As if I couldn’t possibly swoon any more over her ever-growing list of male leads who check off every single box in my book boyfriend world, she goes ahead and kicks it up a notch and creates Ouray, president of Arrow’s Edge MC.

I love MC romance books and HWY 550, specifically, would definitely be included in that genre. It just so happens that our FBI friends and local PD from the two books prior in this incredible series, Keeping Six and Cabin 12, find themselves looking for those responsible for a string of robberies that could be connected to the MC.

Enter FBI agent Luna Roosberg. This pint-sized, sassy, badass, firecracker of an agent could kick anyone’s ass in a fight or with her sharp tongue. Luna has been an intriguing side character in Freya’s past books, and I’m so glad she’s finally gotten her own story. I had more laughs with this book as Luna goes undercover and completely out of her comfort zone when she takes off her proper FBI wear and morphs into a hot-looking biker chick. Well, that did more than catch the attention of Ouray. This is where the fun begins. Luna is a woman who constantly fights to erase the stigma of a woman in a “man’s job.” Believe me, she does it spectacularly, but the biker world is much the same, which doesn’t sit well AT ALL with Luna. The banter back and forth between the bikers, their prez, and Luna is priceless.

Little by little, Ouray and Luna become civil to one another the more she understands the MC world and he respects her position and drive to do her job to its fullest. Ouray confides club business to her, which is an absolute MC no-no, and I had to remind myself that Luna needs this info for the investigation. While Luna emmerses herself into clubhouse life and learns more about the club members and their brotherhood, Freya adds a homeless boy to the story who is deaf and taken in by the MC. This act of kindness has been done before by the club, blurring the lines for those who might slap a label on who they consider a good or bad member of society. This adorable boy, Cody, quickly finds his way into Luna and Ouray’s hearts.

HWY 550 is simply another work of art from Freya Barker’s collection literary treasures. There are so many layers to the storyline as well as the characters. Sometimes the heroes of her books are those least expected. There are plenty of twists and turns, along with some hot sexy times. Ouray and Luna fight to do the right thing but it doesn’t come easy. Nothing worth fighting for ever does. Freya does an incredible job making two characters from opposite sides of the law come together, fall in love, and find their own kind of perfect.

Another outstanding read by my favorite word-spinner, the queen of suspense, sassy women, and the hot alpha men who love them. Freya Barker always leaves me wanting more, and she never disappoints. I highly recommend HWY 550. Five stars for me❤️

I received this ARC for an honest review, and honest it certainly is.

Title: Mission: Impossible to Surrender
Series: The Impossible Mission Series
Author: Jacki Delecki
Genre: Military Romance Suspense
Release Date: February 21, 2019

 

SHE’S NOT A PARTY GIRL ANYMORE…

 

Sophie Dean has worked long and hard to shed the rock-n-roll bad girl reputation she earned at college. With her rebellious days behind her, Sophie now uses the prestige of the Dean family name and money to bankroll humanitarian aid. The only part of her past she can’t leave behind is the major crush she has on Finn Jenkins. When danger from an unknown quarter threatens Sophie’s latest undertaking and she needs protection, fate steps in and delivers a second chance with Finn.
 
HE’S FOUGHT HIS FEELINGS FOR TOO LONG…
When Finn returns home after two tours of duty as a Navy SEAL, it doesn’t take long to realize he still has feelings for Sophie, who is no longer the irresponsible young woman he walked away from all those years ago. An assignment to escort Sophie and an orphaned Pakistani boy to the Pacific Northwest should have been an easy mission—and it’s the perfect opportunity to get re-acquainted with Sophie and finally confess how he feels. But when someone threatens the orphan in their care, Sophie and Finn must set aside their feelings to save the child’s life…and their own.
 
TOGETHER, THEY’LL HAVE TO RISK IT ALL.


Sophie, wedged in between the seats, squirmed to get out. She had taken the brunt of the impact. Finn lifted her into his arms and Sophie fell against his chest. He didn’t care, he wrapped her tightly in his arms, squeezing her against his pounding heart. “Finn,” her voice barely audible. Her lips constricted into a pale line. “I thought they were going to take me again.”
Still holding her in the air, Finn brushed her hair away from her eyes. He had to see her eyes, to make it all better. Her pupils dilated wide like saucers, her shattered face cold and colorless. He never wanted evil to touch her again.
“I’ll die before I’ll let anyone hurt you.” And he kissed her, pouring all his desperate feelings and emotions into the kiss. His mouth crushed down on her cold lifeless lips. He kissed her like he owned her soul and would accept nothing less. She was everything. All he had ever dreamed. All the adrenaline of the chase poured into this kiss, his desperate hunger for this woman. Finn couldn’t stop. Didn’t care. Her body tightened in shock before her softness melted against him, her body clinging to his.
Nick shouted, “Finn, stop mauling Sophie.”
Finn dropped his hands away as if she was an IED about to detonate. Finn, mighty Navy SEAL, lost his focus, his ability to compartmentalize. He pulled back waiting for Sophie to smack him across the face. She gaped at him, her crystalline blue eyes wide, her lips red and swollen from his demanding kiss which gave him territorial satisfaction. She touched her finger to her lips. And, though never lost for words, a shocked Sophie just stared at Finn.
Finn wanted to pull her back into his arms. This was not the place or time though. It was a selfish move on his part to kiss her, to claim her, but it was the one time he’d lost his highly trained control. Only one time after all the endless dreary years. Engaging with the Honchoes brought up all his suppressed fears of losing Sophie, his soulmate, his missing rib—only when you find the woman of your life will you no longer feel the lingering ache in your heart. Finn no longer felt the lingering ache.
“We need to make tracks back to HQ,” Finn said to Nick who was bent over the SUV, checking the tires.
A lone state overweight trooper, looking not too happy as he climbed out of his car, put his hat on his head and with his hand on his holstered gun on his hip, marched toward the troublemakers Finn and Nick. Finn gave Drew the high sign to handle the trooper. Drew, a big, mean, ex-Army Ranger, stepped in front of the trooper. The poor trooper didn’t stand a chance.

 “We need to take the other SUV,” Finn said to Nick, ignoring the biggest and best mistake he had ever made.
