Series: The Savage Trilogy #2

Author: Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date: February 18, 2020

The second book in the Savage Trilogy… 
My name is Rick Savage but they call me Savage for a reason. But savage that I am, there is only one woman who can tame the beast in me, one woman who sees the real man. I loved Candace. I lost Candace. Now my enemies have targeted her. For this, they will not survive. I’m back home to save her and win her back, no matter what the cost.
BUY SAVAGE BURN



EXCERPT
“I stayed away for a reason. I knew if I ever touched you again, I’d want all of you. I’d want to own you and I wouldn’t give a shit about the price. So, yes, I’m going to spank you.” 
“You think me submitting during sex means you own me?” she challenges. 
“One night at a time, baby.”
“One night at a time, until you ruin me?”
“And then some,” I assure her. “There’s no saving you now.” Just to be sure she’s clear on that fact, I scoop her up and start walking. 
She doesn’t object. She holds onto me. I want to believe she’ll hold on forever, but I’m not sure we’re there yet. Who am I kidding? I know we’re not fucking there yet, which is why we’re not doing this in the kitchen. This isn’t about sex. It’s about us, it’s about our relationship, our connection, the intimacy we have shared, the past come back to life. That means our bedroom. 
The place we started and ended days together. The place we talked for hours. The place where we did naughty, kinky things to each other. Okay, I did naughty, kinky things to her more than she did to me. But it was here where the most intense moments were shared.
Once there, I find a small lamp by her bedside alight, casting the room in a dim yellow hue, shadows dancing on the walls with our movements. Shadows that taunt me with everything I’ve hidden from Candace and can no longer hide if I want to make this work. And I do. 
I set her down on the floor in front of the mattress, her back to my front. My hand is on her belly, my erection at her hip. My lips at her ear. “Do you think you’re ready to trust me again?”
Her hand goes to my hand as if she’s trying to control where it goes, to hold it there, and yet, she leans into me. “We’ll find out now, won’t we?”

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

OMGGGGG….. each time I think I have a bead on what’s happening with Savage something happens and I’m lost again!!

Rick & Candace have reconnected but there’s so much going on and so many unknowns that we have to wonder if they’re gonna manage a future together.

Lisa Renee Jones keeps you on the edge of your seat, cursing when the book ends as you’re left with more questions than answers, teetering on the edge of yet another cliff-hanger.

Heat, action, intrigue and suspense all added to make Savage Burn another really great read in this trilogy.

I cannot wait for Savage Love to have the mysteries solved and find out if this couple are gonna have a happy ending or not! 4* recommended read.

Synopsis:

She wants something real. He wants something now. Together they’re trouble in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke’s sexy and funny twice-in-a-lifetime love story.

With his shameless grin and let’s-play swagger, carpenter Penn Etling leaves women wanting in Dogwood Lane. What do they get? Avery Perry knows: a one-night stand. She’s been there. She remembers every hot pulse as if it were yesterday. But Penn? He doesn’t remember a thing. Now he’s making new moves, and Avery’s not falling for trouble…again. Is she?

How could the beautiful stranger resist him? Avery is going to be a challenge for the bad boy. She’s the kind of woman who digs deep—deep enough to see there’s more to Penn than meets the eye. But first she has to give him a chance. She has to say yes. Could she also be the woman to make him change his playboy ways?

When these two come together, it’s hard to pull them apart. But with love and trust on the line, can Avery and Penn get what they both want? This time for keeps?


Been there, done that

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Man, this series just keeps getting better!!! Adriana Locke has me hooked on these books and her characters.

Our third trip to Dogwood Lane sees Penn Etling meet his match in Avery Perry!!

I loved that this pair had a history, even though Penn couldn’t remember her or their night together.

In previous books we’ve seen that Mr Etling is a good guy but definitely not on the path to settling down any time soon but, in Trouble, we saw a different side to the sweethearted playboy.

The guy is sweet, hardworking, funny AF, loyal and dependable but he’s got a deeper side to him that he doesn’t want anyone to find and my heart hurt for him when we discovered how truly thought of himself when it came to commitment and relationships.

Avery was like a female Penn, without the playboy attitude obviously… She was funny, snarky, down to earth (which given her folks and the life she’d been raised in was refreshing). I loved that she didn’t fall for Penn right from the get go but was honest enough with herself when it came to their chemistry and her attraction to him. Being friends with him, for me, gave them a deeper connection and made their potential relationship more real, and gods, how I was rooting for them.

This book was laugh out loud funny, so damned addicting and, quite probably, my favourite book in the Dogwood Lane series so far.

5 big hearted stars for Penn & Avery!

REVIEW – Crazy Heifer (The Valentine Boys #2) by Lani Lynn Vale

Crazy Heifer
The Valentine Boys #2
Release Date: February 25

I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.

Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.

Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed. The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

BLP REVIEW -Tracy

I’ve got to say that so far Callum Valentine is my favourite of the brothers, even though Ace was pretty hot!!

I adore Lani Lynn Vale’s books and I like the fact that this is set in one of the towns that we’ve come to know in other series.

We met Desi in the first book as she is Codie’s BFF and from glimpses in Herd That we knew that her ex was a twat off the highest order and a bully to boot but reading what she’d had to deal with made me hurt for her.

Callum hasn’t had the easiest of times himself (as you’ll know if you’ve already started the series) but he was a really good, caring, loyal guy and pretty much was smitten from the first time he saw Desi and set out to get to know her.

There was an attraction between the pair from the get go, the heat between them was combustible and I loved that he was open and candid about his likes when it came to her (and how she saw herself). I liked how comfortable they became together and the speed at which their relationship developed didn’t feel rushed or too much. Some of LLV’s chapter heading had me chuckling hard!!!!

Crazy Heifer is a solid 4.5* read and a great addition to the series. I’m looking forward to Chute Yeah and finding out what Banks did that’s got his ‘lady love’ spitting feathers any times she sees him!!!

Title: Absolving Blue
Series: On Call #4

Author: Freya Barker


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2020
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

For long-time Durango Fire Department EMT, Ava ‘Blue’ Navarro, her teammates at Station 3 represent a family more loyal than her own.
However, when patients start dying on her watch, she draws the attention of local law enforcement. In particular the smooth-talking detective she’s successfully evaded for years, fearing he might stir up her quiet existence.
Detective Tony Ramirez considers himself a likable guy, which is why the perpetual cold shoulder from the athletic blonde first responder is confusing.
Now he finds himself in charge of a murder investigation that threatens to shake his world both personally and professionally. A situation that won’t earn him any brownie points.
When medical examiner, Calder Stonewall, is called in to assist, it only seems to throw more suspicion Blue’s way, and Tony has to pull out all the stops to prove her innocence while securing her heart.

“I really hate this,” she says when I lift my head.
“I must be losing my touch, then,” I joke, and she slaps my chest.
“Not that, you idiot. I hate being weak.”
“Now who’s being an idiot?” I lightly shake her. “If you sprained your ankle, would you think it weak to see a doctor? Do you think the people you tend to on a daily basis are weak?” When she reluctantly shakes her head, I push my point home. “So how’s this any different? We’re just talking about another part of you that needs some healing. Shit, if you think that makes you weak, you’re calling every cop in Durango a pussy. Wait ‘til I tell the guys.”
“You wouldn’t,” she snaps, her eyes spitting fire.
“If you keep spouting that nonsense, I might.”





BLP REVIEW – Tracy

What can I say about Freya Barker?? She is without doubt one of my favourite authors though she is, IMHO, sadly under-acknowledged when it comes to how good she is at her craft!!

Her stories are touching, well written and filled with humour. Her characters are relatable, likeable and believable who, often times, have dealt with or are going through real life issues. Ms B also throws in spade loads of action, suspense, twists and turns and one helluva lot of heat and passion!

I loved Ava/Blue. She’s always come across as a real tough, no nonsense cookie when we’ve met her in previous stories but learning about her past and that she wasn’t just as tough as she’d have other believe gave her a real sense of vulnerability that I could understand. Saying that, she’s still no shrinking violet and I was pretty sure at points that she was gonna stand fast in her determination to close out Tony Ramirez, even when it wouldn’t have been in her own best interest!! Thankfully that wasn’t the case for too long!

So, to Mr Ramirez. If I’m being honest he was one of these characters who previously I couldn’t quite decide if I really liked or not, he seemed at points to hit on any pretty female with a pulse and I couldn’t quite make up my mind if he was a real manwhore or just a bit of a ladies man! Well, I should never doubt Freya ‘cos, as ever, she made him likeable and turns out he was a really great guy who was there for Ava when she really needed him.

Their relationship, when it began, didn’t take too long to develop into something more and I was cool with that, both are a bit older and when you know what you’ve got is right, what’s the point in wasting time waiting?

The action, suspense and surprises all added to my enjoyment of the story, as did catching up with some of our old favourites from earlier books and previous series. I adored Tony’s dad, he was a great character.

Absolving Blue is another surefire hit in the On Call series and I can’t wait to find out what’s coming next from Ms Barker.

5*
