RELEASE DATE: January 28th 2015
After the love of her life walks out the door, Abby Simmons is depressed, run down, and overwhelmed. Working long days as an attorney in a busy firm is sucking the life out of her and Abby feels she is at the end of her rope. Then, a co-worker recommends a new type of spa called Paradise. He promises their therapies will shake off her lethargy and help her to regain her sparkle. Skeptical, but very curious, Abby decides to visit the establishment. At first, what she hears sounds too good to be true, but soon Abby uncovers a whole new world of pleasure that quickly becomes her undoing.
Step behind the door to embark on a journey where surrendering to desire is only the beginning. Welcome to Paradise.
Before I could react, he had pried my legs apart and was working along my inner right thigh, moving slowly upward. By now, my reservations were gone and I surrendered to him. And when his fingers reached the junction between my legs, I gasped when his hands slipped under my butt and gripped my cheeks, squeezing them in his hands. He could see every intimate part of me, I was sure of it. Letting go of my butt, his hands came around to my folds. At that moment, when his finger slipped between my legs, I clapped my hand over my mouth, suppressing my scream.
His fingers moved along my folds, tracking my wetness up and down. I was so wet at this point that my insides heaved with desire as he stroked me. I wanted to cry out, ask him what he was doing, but I didn’t. I let him manipulate my folds, slowly, methodically bringing me to orgasm. My hips began rocking in time with his hands. God, those hands were making me feel things I never thought possible. I could feel my climax building, like a wave caught in the shallows it was gaining momentum, waiting to wash over me.
I was at his mercy now. I ached for release and was willing to do anything to achieve it. But when his finger inched back and forth over my vagina, teasing me with the promise of what was to come. I bit my lip, desperate for him to penetrate me. His fingers did not wait long to slip inside of me, and when I felt the pressure of him moving deeper, I arched my back and moaned. He was rubbing back and forth over that spot, the one so many men try to find but give up. Well, Mr. Hands knew exactly where my spot was, and as he slowly moved in and out of me, I knew I was going to come harder than I had ever come before.

BLP REVIEW ~ Rebecca
I adore MC books, and over the last couple of weeks have been devouring them at a rapid rate. Most were by established authors and a continuation of an existing series but this one was a lovely surprise, a debut book by an author who shows real potential.
Katarina Saunders. Kat to the world, international rock star. Lead singer for The Grinders. Until an accident that ruins her career and sends her running into the mountains, away from everything and everyone.
Dane Reynolds, President of the Savage Angels MC. Fierce, strong and loyal.
He’s had his eye on Kat for a while now and has been waiting for her to come to him, but he’s had enough of waiting. He’s decided it’s time to make her his. But so has her stalker, he’s been waiting for far too long…
Can Dane save Kat? Or will her savage stalker get to her first?
Biker and rock star in the same book?
Let’s start with Kat – after the accident she hides herself away, unable to cope with the outside world of intrusive paparazzi and fans. Lost and adrift with no focus to her life if she can no longer sing. She moves into her mothers’ house, totally unaware that the MC President lives next door and that the club had a close relationship with her mother.
Then there’s Dane – the Prez – my very favourite type of tall, tatted alpha. Oh yes please, gimme some of that man!!
After a year of just watching over Kat for her safety he’s done waiting for an introduction – there are issues to be sorted connected with Kat’s mother and he just wants to get to know her in every way possible!
What both are unaware of is that a stalker has Kat in his sights and will not stop until he has her.
There is plenty of chemistry between Kat and Dane. The relationship was not always as developed as I would have liked but a damn good start. The suspense aspect with the stalker was well done with a misdirection that keeps you guessing.
Blood is not the only tie that creates family, friendship and love do and Kathleen Kelly shows this really well. To Kat, the band is family and obviously to Dane his MC Brothers are his and in the interactions between them all, both separately and together, the love and affection shines through. I really liked the fact that the band and MC on meeting both become one huge dysfunctional unit, teasing and abusing each other but whose only priority is the safety of Kat.
There are a lot of secondary characters in this book but I would love to see more Judge, he intrigues me!
On the whole a very enjoyable read introducing the world of the Savage Angels and Grinders to us, the only spoilers for me was a little overkill on the amount of POVs used and the author’s dialogue style was a little disjointed with the grammar sometimes. As a debut it’s a solid one and I have no doubt that as this author gains more experience she will be one to look out for.

Fantasies – we all have them.For some it’s their dream job; others want the wedding, the 2.5 kids, the white picket fence.My fantasies are a bit more…depraved.Dark and sinful, they have destroyed relationships and my livelihood, yet I still submit to them like a slave.Sex.For most, it’s a natural expression of love, caring, or lust.But there are those of us who can’t stop once we’ve had a taste.Those of us who don’t want to.And the shame of that never-ending cycle will eat us alive…My name is Evan James, and I am a sex addict.
1. 3 things you never leave home without?
Ella: Phone, wallet, keys
3. Your biggest pet peeve?Ella: Being told to talk in a quieter voice. I get loud when excited. It takes away the fun when interrupted and told to speak softly. ~pouts~
Brooke: Most of mine have to do with people being glued to phones in public, whether it’s during a movie or live theatre, at dinner with friends, or while trying to have a one on one conversation. No one’s in the moment anymore.
4. Favorite male body part?
Brooke: Eyes, always. Can height be a body part too? Because I hate being taller than the guy all the time.
Ella: Nice, broad shoulders.
5. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Ella: No. I think you can find someone extremely attractive, but to love a person, I believe you need to know them.
Brooke: No way. To love someone, you need to love all of them, even the ugly parts they don’t want you to see. And at first sight, they definitely aren’t showing off those flaws.
6. Sex on the first date?
Brooke: For my friends? Absofuckinglutely. I love hearing about it afterward. 😉 But for me, probably not. I’m much shyer than I let on.
Ella: No. And not because I’m a prude, I just never have.
7. If you can be any fictional character for a day, who would you want to be?
Ella: Elizabeth Bennett on her wedding day (and night) to Mr. Darcy.
Brooke: Ohhh, good one, Ella. I’m gonna go total potternerd and say any character in Harry Potter. For the butter beer and magic spells, of course.
8. Write a short letter to Santa Claus and show us how it would like.
Brooke: Dear Santa, I’ve been really good for the last twenty minutes that I’ve been writing these answers, so let’s just focus on that, shall we? P.s. – I’ll leave you dark chocolate bacon cupcakes instead of stale cookies this year if you put our book in everyone’s stockings.
Ella: Dear Santa, Just because my name made it to the top of the naughty list does not mean I participated in any kind of shenanigans. I was a good girl, I promise… well okay, maybe not promise, how about…I think? Love & kisses, Ella
1. (Psychiatry) (often foll by: to) to cause (someone or oneself) to become dependent (on something, esp a narcotic drug)
2. (Medicine) a person who is addicted, esp to narcotic drugs
3. a person who is devoted to something: a jazz addict. But I feel, in Evan’s case this is more appropriate…..
addict – To addict originally meant “to award as a slave”; an addict now is a slave to his/her habit, from Latin addictus, which, in Roman law, meant “a debtor awarded as a slave to his creditor.”
I’m a big fan of Ella Frank’s work and was intrigued when I heard she had collaborated with a new author, Brooke Blaine, on a series. When I read what it was about, my interest was definitely piqued!!
We are first introduced to Evan James the morning after a lengthy ‘banging session’ with a mystery blonde, and you get from the 1st chapter that he craves sex in a majorly big way!!!
“The visual mitigated part of the craving deep inside – the one that insisted he reach out and take. And take. And take. Never satisfied. Thirst never quenched.“
Mr James is a sex addict who moves from one ‘warm hole’ to another on a very regular basis, no repeats, no relationships, just a very regular, very much needed release that has him at its mercy!!!! This addiction and his decidedly unwise choice of ‘fixes’, has already cost him his job and it seems he’s extremely close to losing everything else as his addiction continues to spiral out of control!!!
When we think or read about addiction, it’s usually along the lines of drug or alcohol addiction. We’ve seen the devastation, pain and misery that these 2 things alone can cause, but ‘A Desperate Man’ gives us a little taste of what an addiction to sex (be it the actual act, self fulfilment in some way – and jeez, does Evan have some interesting ways to ease the NEED – or his constant thoughts about getting off…)
We find out that Evan’s life is on a very bleak path to self destruction…. and it appears he’s got no way of grabbing on to a life line..
One scene in particular lets you see just how far down the rabbit hole Evan has fallen!
But then life throws him a little twist, hell, more of a bloody curve ball…. in the shape of Blondie…. but will this be his salvation or the final step on his path to self-destruction?!?!?!?
I’m not into spoilers or rehashing a story so all I’ll say is – if you’re looking for a story that’s a little different, a bit dark, intriguing and really quite addictive, pick up a copy of ‘A Desperate Man – The Fantasy’ and fall into the world of Evan James – I’ve got a feeling it’s gonna be quite a ride!!!!! 😉
