One Starry Night...

In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek whod had a crush on her, but when hed found the courage to ask her to Prom, shed turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isnt high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any wayevery waythey can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?

We have quickly met Jake Tremaine in the Sinners on Tour series - he's a Sinners roadie and we just know he is all kinds of trouble!

The book starts with Michelle attending her high school reunion and reminiscing about the one who broke her heart - Jake.   She is also remembers her so called friends, the mean girls of the school.  She is not that girl any more, she doesn't follow, she takes her own road.

Then there is Devlin.  The geeky, sweet guy who made it.  Rich, and did we mention hot?

When these three start talking at the reunion, there is a spark between the three and when they decide to all leave the reunion together, you just know that things are going to get f&^k hot!

And they do!!  From a helicopter ride to Dev's island home, things go at warp speed and everyone is in a sex haze.  As we say, everyone is "cracking a moisty" in no time at all.

I loved that we did get a bit of a background on their previous relationships, especially between Jake and Michelle.  And I can't forget that we get a mention of Sed Lionheart and my man Trey Mills from the Sinner.... damn, now I want more Sinners!!

As always, Olivia gets us all hot and bothered, and leaves me wanting more

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. Shes been working for her familys dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and shes not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat thats been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys whove set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys dont give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

Boots Optional is a novella that introduces us to Nicole's new series Dead Heat Ranch.  

Grant and Lane have been chasing Gracie for the past couple of years.... but lately they have been chasing each other as well.  We start off with a heated exchange between the pair in Grant's kitchen one night, which Grace just happens to walk in on.... ***fanning myself***

Gracie takes not crap from nobody.  She will call them on their BS, will give back as good as she take.  And she is sick of the games that Grant and Lane are playing with her... or are they?  

I loved the push and pull with this trio.  Grant thinks things through a lot more then Lane who is the more spontaneous and easy going of the pair.   I loved that they had to work for what they are going to get.

Also loved the interactions with Grace's sisters, especially Faith and Mercy.  I guess when it comes to all the family living and working together, there is not much you can hide!  

I tell you what, no one can write a cowboy menag` like Nicole Edwards.  Now I have to impatiently wait for more of the Dead Heat Ranch series.... grrr I don't like waiting!!!

New York Times bestselling authorCherrie Lynn gets it hot in here with SHAMELESS. It's a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can't get the man's sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is...

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend's little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam's put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?

We've all been there. That one person you can't help thinking about, are totally in love with, and they love you too but just don't know it yet.  It happens to all of us.

This is Merideth Taylor's life.  She has been in love with her brother's best friend Cameron forever.  But he still thinks of her as Dane's kid sister.  Or does he.

After listening in on a couple getting a little something something, Meri decides that she can't keep on like this

Sick of the "what ifs" Meri decides, with a lot of encouragement/blackmail from her best friend Alyssa, to do something about it.  Hey, they worst that could happen can be that he laughs at her.  I loved that she grabbed the bull by the horns and went for it.  Go girl!! 

Cameron is just wonderful.  Fit, sexy, completely in love with Meri.  I felt for both Meri and Cam that they had held off for so long on acting on their feelings because of a) perhaps losing their friendship b) what Dane would think about it.  I was glad that they both manned up and did something for themselves, took what they wanted,

Cherrie definitely lived up to my expectations of her writing.  Smoking hot, tattooed men who take what they want - yes please!!

New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby brings you PLAYING WITH FIRE, a ménage novella. Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were "different", but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?

Time to call Triple Zero... my house is on fire and I need Kevin and Gray to come and put it out!!

If you have read Tied With Me, you will remember Bailey is Nic's friend, and has always said looks can be deceiving, that she is not as vanilla as she looks.

Kevin and Gray share everything.... and now they want to share Bailey.  There has been attraction between all three for a long while now, but no one has ever done anything about it.  The boys have had enough, they are no longer going to wait for Bailey to realise it is them they want, and they make their move.

Wowser, what a move they make!!!  Kevin, Gray and Bailey are smoking hot, that spark between them all is at ignition point, and when  they fall into bed, the sheets are going to catch fire!!  I needed to be hosed down!!

I loved that as much as they went after they wanted, they took such good care of Bailey, tended to her needs.  I could understand Bailey's reluctance to get involved in case one of the two men she cared for got hurt by her, but loved even more that they boys reassured her.

Now I need more of this trio!

And another thing... I am a firefighter, and I am going to my captain to ask him to order me a Kevin and Gray!!

From USA Today bestselling author, Lainey Reese comes Guarding Nadia.

When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards.  It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.

Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service.  They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard anyone, including the gorgeous erotic author.  Considering her stunning beauty, alluring sensuality and decadent profession, the only wonder was that she had drawn out just one obsessed fan.  After hearing Nadia's story and seeing for themselves the threat that she was under, they knew they could keep her safe from any stalker.

Their only worry...who was going to keep her safe from them?

Guarding Nadia was sizzling hot right from the get go.  After some issues going on in her life (that I don't want to get into as it will take away from the story for you), she meets Caleb and Jonas and hotness ensues!  They sure know hot to treat a lady.  I mean, who doesn't want two hotties watching out for them, taking care of them.

As there is a bit of a mystery element to this story, I don't want to say too much, but needless to say, you will not at all be disappointed in the way the story goes!!!
