An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Wicked Dance. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
“This night is so beautiful, Tom.”
“Yes, it is, but it doesnít compare to you.” He nuzzled my ear as he spoke, his breath raising the hairs on the back of my neck.
Come on. Does he really have to say things like that? He must know it sounds so cheesy.
“You must say that to all the girls,” I teased.
“All the time,” he said, taking a tiny nip of my lobe.
Shivers ran down my spine, making me tremble. Looking at me with his playful eyes, he took off his blazer and draped it over my shoulders. I smiled. Shamefully and against my better judgment, Iíd fallen for his cheesiness.
“This is the second time youíve given me one of your jackets,” I said.
“I guess I like the way you look in my things.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes.”
His strong fingers grabbed me by the lapels of his blazer, bringing me closer. I gazed up only to find myself bound by his olive eyes. My arms were trapped under his jacket, rendering me motionless. Heíd snared me. “What would you do if I kissed you?” he asked in a whisper.
“Why donít you find out?” I replied with sweet command.
He pulled up on the blazer, drawing me into him. This time, I didnít blink and no iron wall came crashing down to shield me from his kiss. I closed my eyes as his lips touch mine. Our mouths parted, our tongues feeling each other for the first time. With tenderness, they tangled in each other, exploring their sensitive areas, sending electric currents down my back.
The kiss sparked flames at all my nerve endings. His tongue invaded me deeper. The hotwire from my mouth to my groin flowed feverishly, igniting sensations I hadnít felt in a while. I sank deeper into his kiss, responding to his hunger. Our tongues swirled in harmony, hot and wet. He savored every bite he took of my mouth as I feasted on his succulent lips.
His hold on me loosened, but not for long. He reached under my hair, cupping my jaw and caressing my chin with his thumbs. My senses flooded with a myriad of feelings and tastes. My own hunger grew in beat with his heavy breaths. I knew it and he knew itówe couldnít continue the kiss. Fighting with all the will in my body, and slightly panting from his devilish assailment, I broke from his hot breath. His eyes were drunk with lust, making my knees weak. I feared if we were completely alone, I would be consumed by his passion.
His lips curled, and in a husky voice, he said, “Perhaps, we should go.”

SGMyReview

Ahhhhhhhh, I’m so frustrated!!!!! I guess in a good way frustrated, but I’m still bubbling up with ahhhhh…. the reason!??! Well, this book! It was a slow start for me and I found it quite wordy in the world set up, however, once I persisted I was rewarded with a story of complicated characters. The intense moments and the layers of drama kept me reading and wanting to know more. Sara and Tom meet in a coffee shop and with a little Sara hand intervention, life takes a wicked turn and they start to get to know each other. I did enjoy this book, very much. There’s a lot of mystery and intrigue that is played out, and the author does a good job of keeping a steady flow without it getting messy. The only thing I didn’t really love was the ending…. I wanted more and I need more.  I sure hope there is more to this story, because I know Tom and Sara’s story isn’t done yet. I want it! ASAP!

Don’t wait, grab this one and feel the dance with me! I definitely recommend this book for the contemporary romance readers out there.

My flash review of this book when I finished reading it was “everything and more” I wanted in a sequel. A fab follow-up to the first book Mr. President .
In the newly released follow up to Mr. President, Matt has made it into the White House, but Charlotte has run off to Europe. Making it into the top spot in the country isn’t the same without the girl who got him there by his side. Matt asks her to join him, and what we have is CiC. I really loved the redemption and reunion in this book. How the two tangle together to tackle politics and romance. First and rxrp08kf8xnzi foremost, this is a romance book and I love the way the author has done it. There are no boring politics, and it even includes a little mystery and intrigue (after all, it IS Washington DC!!) I enjoyed reading the ongoing beautiful, blossoming relationship and adventure in the White House. This book is a definite summer smasher, meaning you can read it in one sitting. A great book to give you a little hope for the political future. If only Matt Hamilton REALLY WAS in the White House as “Mr President”!!  I really wanted this review to be more eloquent, but I just don’t know what to say, except – definitely read the book!! *insert smiley emoticon* 😀

Book Review: HEARTthrob by Belinda Williams

heartthrob

Hollywood Hearts Book (1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction

CAN AN AVERAGE GIRL SURVIVE HOLLYWOOD?

Ally Valenti doesn’t belong in Hollywood. Not like her friend and actress, Lena Lyons. Lena’s convinced Ally to pursue her dreams of fashion design, starting with some gowns for the awards season.

Which Ally will get around to creating as soon as she can stop looking at Jacob Swan, Lena’s latest cdvuymsbcsxs9ao-star. Not that she’s staring. Ally’s skeptical of anything celebrity and it’s not like she’d be pathetic enough to fall for a Hollywood heartthrob.

Then Ally learns there’s more to Jacob than his good guy, all-American persona. She finds herself torn between the desire to get to know him better and her determination to stay out of the limelight.

Of course the media has other ideas—and someone doesn’t like all the attention Ally’s getting. When threats aimed at destroying her fashion career go too far, Ally’s convinced she’s living in crazy town.

The sensible thing would be to retreat home before it all ends in spectacular fashion. But will Ally be leaving more than her dreams behind if she says goodbye to Hollywood?

This glamorous, fast-paced contemporary romance that will make you smile, is perfect for fans of Rachel Gibson, Victoria Dahl, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Liliana Hart.

SGMyReview

Belinda Williams has knocked it out of the park again with this contemporary romance book set in Hollywood, USA! Her latest series is a new step into the world of glitz and glamour, and I couldn’t be more excited to read it. One thing I really value in Belinda Williams as an author, is her ability to create a world that you feel a part of. You instantly feel connected to the characters, and are cheering for them on the side. I’ve got to say, there was a moment in this book that I thought we had reached an arc, and 3o6zt0im82qhmdmjrethem BAM, she throws me off my feet and we go in a completely different direction. It made the read exciting, and engaging. This book has loads of things for any fan of women’s fiction. It’s not all lovey dovey, but has some depth and had me flipping through the pages in one sitting.

Although this is a part of a series, you can read these books and not worry about the ending!! For that reason, I look forward to following this world Belinda Williams is creating, and you should too!

Book Review: Say You Remember by H. D’Agostino

sayyouremember

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I had it all once…I was popular, a jock, the center of attention in any group, friends that followed me everywhere. I thought I ruled the world, and in my high school I did. Girls threw themselves at me, and I used them knowing they’d never mean anything until I met her…Danielle Reed.

I never planned on liking her or even falling in love, but I did. I fell hard, and I ruined it before it could really begin.

It’s been eight years now. I never thought I’d see her again, but here she is. The thing is, she can’t stand me. She reminds me every chance she gets of what a horrible person I was, and how she hopes I rot in hell. I know it would be simpler to just move on and forget about her, but I can’t. I can’t let her go, and I don’t want to.

Danielle Reed will be mine again. I just need to make her remember.

SGMyReview

Although this is the fourth book in the series, I went into the book reading as a stand alone (having not read any others). I had to re-read the beginning over so that I could place myself where the characters where. Once I did, I settled in and managed to capture the essence of the novel.qabkzl6r82i6q

The story flowed back and forth through past and present point of view. This could be confusing, but for this book it really worked to get character backgrounds and where they were coming from. The alternate point of views never overlapped so much that you were reading the same thing, this helped to move the story along.

I really felt for Dani, especially after Mason’s betrayals (the crux of the story). I couldn’t believe she held onto so much anger for so many years. It was nice to see Mason had been through his own life’s trials and tribulations that it was able to make him into the better person he is all those years later. The person he needed to be to jjgup9efwrsukhelp Dani remember the times he wants back.

Pick this book up if you are after a second chance romance full of heartache and redemption.

Book Review: The Holly Project by K.A. Sterritt


“One foot in front of the other. Breathe in, breathe out.”

Holly Ashton hasn’t celebrated her birthday since her mother passed away. Instead, it’s the one day of the year that she allows herself to grieve. The rest of the year is spent pretending to be the strong and independent woman she wants to be.

Professionally, she has it all together. A great job as an architect at Sydney’s most prestigious firm keeps her focused.

Her personal life is far less charmed. Emotionally detached from everyone other than her small circle of friends and family, relationships are a no-go zone.

Life is exactly how she wants it to be – until the day of her twenty-fifth birthday.

A chance encounter with Ryan Davenport, CEO of a property development firm, turns her tightly controlled life upside down.

Ryan is driven, ambitious and used to getting what he wants – and very unexpectedly, what he wants is the beautiful, smart-mouthed Holly Ashton.

When neither of them believes in happily ever afters, how are they supposed to find their own?

SGMyReview

I picked up The Holly Project at my first ever author signing. I loved the front cover, and I also really loved that it was set in Sydney, Australia. It’s the second day of school holidays giphy1here in Australia, and my children don’t seem to know what a ‘sleep in’ is…so rude!!! This morning I was awoken at a ridiculous hour, so ridiculous that even my Netflix and Presto streaming services weren’t awake yet. Annoyed that I couldn’t indulge in some mindless viewing I headed to my bookshelf and searched the books I had recentlygiphy picked up at the signing. The Holly Project jumped into my hands and it ended up being a lovely way to spend a morning, and then afternoon.

Holly is a woman who hides her feelings, not so neatly tucked away in a pocket of grief after she witnesses her mum dying from cancer (side note: Cancer SUCKS). A chance meeting one day with a man who ends up being her ‘client’ sets her off on an adventure of self-discovery and love. I truly believe in whirlwind romances (having had one myself) and although I knew there had to be come angst along the way, I really loved the way the author wove the story. It was such an easy read and I breezed through it, without missing a beat. Sometimes, love is worth the risk, breathe in, breathe out, and see what happens. The chemistry, the characters, and the backdrop of Sydney made for a fun romantic getaway read.

Book Review: Fire Me Up by Rachael Johns

 

(Deacons of Bourbon Street 2) 

Genre: MC Romance. Contemporary Fiction

Travis “Cash” Sinclair values only two things from his days with the Deacons of Bourbon Street: his prized Harley Davidson and the man who gave it to him. But now Priest Lombard is gone, and Cash has inherited the Deacons’ clubhouse—not to mentions its unexpected tenant. She’s exactly the type of woman he tries to avoid: all incense and art, with a sharp tongue that promises trouble. So why does Cash want to push aside those flowing skirts and lose himself between her legs?

Billie Taylor fled a bad marriage to start a new life among the grit and glamour of the French Quarter. She refuses to let another man distract her from her dreams, especially an outlaw biker with nothing to offer except hot sex and an eviction notice. Cash is dangerous, with an untamed streak he tries desperately to conceal. He drives Billie wild, sending her too close to the edge for her own good. And she won’t fall under his spell—or into his bed—without a fight.

 

SGMyReview

The next instalment in the Deacons of Bourbon Street fills in some more detail surrounding the mysterious death of former President, Priest. Travis “Cash” Sinclair has been let down so many times in life, that he truly believes that he is meant to travel the world alone, never to love.

“If he learned one lesson early in life, it was that the only person you could count on was yourself. He was a lone player now, and that the way he intended to stay.”

That is, until he meets a feisty Australian artist who occupies the art gallery, former home to the clubhouse. Cash comes barreling into Billie’s world and turns it upside down, without ever meaning to. Billie and Cash have a swirling, messy romance, like charcoal on paper. They epitomise the opposites attract analogy; the yin and yang of love.

The author seamlessly recreates the world established by the first author in the series. This is something to be commended when writing in the same world, with some of the same characters from the previous book. The city of New Orleans features once again, as the artistic and historical side starts to come into play. The introduction of the ‘bad bikers’ from the rival motorcycle club ramps up the tension and creates interest and intrigue into the continuing storyline of finding out why Priest died, and why the four brothers left town in the first place. Another great read.

Can’t wait to read the next instalment.

Book Review: Make You Burn by Megan Crane

isbn9781472236791

Genre: Contemporary Romance. MC Romance.

Meet the Deacons of Bourbon Street, bad boy bikers who are hell on wheels and heaven between the sheets. Fans of Madeline Sheehan, Katie Ashley, Joanna Wylde and Kristen Ashley, buckle up – you’re in for a wild ride. First stop: Make You Burn by Megan Crane.

Sean ‘Ajax’ Harding’s oaths are inked into his skin. Once second-in-command of the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, he left New Orleans to protect his brotherhood. But the death of his beloved mentor, Priest Lombard, has lured him back. Heading straight to the club’s hangout, he’s welcomed by the delectable new owner. A wild ride with her is just what he needs – until he finds out she’s Priest’s daughter, all grown up and off limits.

Sophie Lombard loved her father, but she’s done with bikers. Then Ajax roars into town and changes everything. Sophie knows better than to get close to an outlaw but Ajax is impossible to resist. Their chemistry is steamier than the Louisiana bayou – and with heat like this, it might just be worth getting burned.

 

 

SGMyReview

Stepping into the world of the Deacons of Bourbon Street is as thrilling as a fast paced ride on the back of a motorcycle. The first book, Make You Burn, is a scorching read covering loss, love, and tragedy. Sophie tries to navigate life without her father, the president of the local disbanded MC club, after he dies mysteriously in a riding accident. Enter, Ajax, returned home after ten years of exile by Sophie’s dad, slipping into the role of President. 

It was great to read a female lead who gave as good as she got. Sophie did not back down from a guy like Ajax, and was able to me meet him head on, creating chemistry off the charts. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding why Ajax and the three ‘brothers’ were exiled, and whilst you don’t find out in this book, the story line offers enough mystery and clues to start piecing the puzzle together.

“Why had Priest sent four of his most loyal and trusted brothers away ten years ago? Sure, shit had gone down wrong and blood called for blood, but why four exiled lives for one death? That math had never worked”.

I loved the setting of New Orleans-reading her as another character that created depth to the story. The book is full of flawed characters who live in a dark and dirty world. Together, can they create the light that can dim the darkness of the back alleys of NOLA?

A great read for anyone who loves a good, well-written, MC genre story.

~Book 1 in the Deacons of Bourbon Street. Look out for my future reviews of the rest of the series!

Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable multimedia artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons, she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with too many pets and an artist named Jeff.
