Review: Uncaged by Harper Sloan

You have to have read the rest of the Corps Security series before reading this one, it is NOT a standalone but a continuation of Cage’s story.  Please take the time to read the first 3 books in the series before reading Uncaged.

Greg Cage’s life is more fulfilling than he ever could have imagined. He’s married to the love of his life, has an amazing son, and in a few short months, his family will grow again with the birth of his twin girls.

The past year has been a tough one for the Cage family, but they are now on the road to healing by learning to let go of the past and looking forward to their future.

When situations beyond his control threaten to take away so much of what Greg holds close to his heart, he has to learn that he doesn't always have the control he tries to maintain in their lives. Will he be able to handle the stress of knowing his wife and newborn daughters are beyond his protection?

Join the Cage family as they embark on yet another one of life’s journeys with a rambunctious four-year-old, pregnancy complications, and the fear of the unknown.

Will the love that Greg and Melissa share hold true as they fight to overcome the obstacles that face them?

The continuation of Cage and Melissa’s story is one that I felt so much emotion with that a box of tissues was a constant by my side.  We see how their relationship has progressed, with the birth of their twins on the horizon.  We see how Cohen is still his adorable heart stealing self.  You can see the strength of the bond that Cage and Melissa share in not only their marriage but the way they are raising Cohen.

You feel the excitement that the couple is feeling with the upcoming birth of the twins.  Even Cohen is super excited about the upcoming arrival of his sisters, it is so sweet.  They need this bit of happiness after the past painful year for the crew. 

Just when you think everything will be a happy ending like they deserve, something so upsetting happens that you will ball your eyes out.  Now I cried big ugly tears when I had read Beck, I cried ugly tears when I read Uncaged as well.   When I wrote my review for Beck I cried remembering the reason and once again I am crying now writing this review of Uncaged.  I will not spoil it and tell you what happens because to feel the true emotion of this book, you have to read it.  Unless you are a cold hearted person who has no emotions this book will bring forth strong feelings.  I can promise you that you will need tissues.  I can promise you that you will not take for granted the ones you love always being by your side, that you will cherish each moment you have with them.

Harper Sloan has truly won me over with this series.  From the beginning with Axel’s story, to the continuation of Cage’s and the future books in this series she has me hooked wanting to read more of the men Corp’s Security and see all of their stories unfold.  Please if you are a fan of this series, make sure that you read this one because Cage, Melissa and especially Cohen will pull at your heart and leave their mark.

Review: Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane

Peyton has survived a traumatic experience.  One that has not only scarred her physically but mentally as well.  She keeps herself covered in baggy clothes, she doesn’t date, and doesn’t trust easily.  She works in her pie shop and tries to get through each day without triggering the nightmare to replay in her mind.  When playboy Reed comes into her shop her life begins to turn itself upside down.  She doesn’t want to let Reed into her life or heart, but slowly he works his way in, not taking no for an answer.  Reed has his own demons and scars from his past that he doesn’t want Peyton to find out.  These two need to learn to trust each other so that they can heal the scars and begin to live.

I liked Peyton’s character even though at times I wanted to just shake her and plead with her to snap out of her self-imposed prison.  I understand why she is like this, but I have a problem with how she allowed her best friend at times to just push her around and dictate her life.  Ok I hated the best friend, she is a bitch one that needs to learn real quick that the world does not revolve around her ass.  I honestly felt bad for her boyfriend, I think she took his balls the second they began dating.

Reed, he is your typical rich playboy.  Not wanting to commit, and if one of his hook ups started to want more, he showed her to the door.  But with Peyton he is different.  He knows that he has to take things one step at a time with her.  He knows that he needs to get her to trust him before she will share her secrets with him, but yet he keeps his own personal secrets from her at the same time.

Then there is the jealous ex who feels that she needs to stick her nose into their business, cause come on let’s face it the ex always has to try to stir the pot of shit and make trouble.  And this ex, she’s a first class bitch to put it mildly.

I am not going to sugar coat how I feel about this book.  At times I wanted to not finish it, to just erase it off of my Kindle and move on to the next book.  I liked the book but sadly at times it was so annoying that I just cannot love it.  Now, I am not saying not to read it, I would never do that, but if you do read it be prepared for immature, bossy best friends, bitch ex’s, secrets, and total lack of communication at times and a female who would rather hide in her own self-pity than try to heal and become a stronger person because she is a survivor for a majority of the book.

Review: Underestimated by Jettie Woodruff

I have found a new love. It’s dark reads. For some reason, dark reads are appealing to me and I’m loving them. Underestimated by Jettie Woodruff is one of those reads.

I found myself drawn into a world that is unbelievably dark and twisted. It was horrifying, it was sick and it was intriguing. If it was so horrifying, why was I drawn into it?

Jettie Woodruff’s writing drew me in to this story about a girl from a small town. She’s literally sold by her father to an asshole of a man. Well…I hesitate to call him a man, I’ll just call him a male person. And that’s being kind. I was hooked. This was an amazing story that held me from the first sentence to the very last.

Morgan’s plight pulled at my heart. I so wanted her to gain her footing and find herself. I wanted her to learn what it meant to be loved and cherished. She fought the entire way. She did what she had to. Unfortunately because of the way she was treated by her husband, she didn’t truly learn how to value herself. It took her getting away and finding a real man in order to learn that.

Morgan finally got away from Drew, her husband, and met Dawson. Dawson is a real man. He knows how to treat a woman and he loves with his whole heart. He showed Morgan how to beat back her demons, how to love and how to be normal.

Life has a way of throwing us curve balls and Morgan finds herself right back where she started. With Drew. Only this time, she’s not putting up with him. She’s taking a stand. But when she finally remembers everything, will she choose Drew or Dawson?

I truly despised Drew. Even at the end, I felt he had no redeeming qualities. He’s an ass, he’s manipulative and he’s sick and twisted. Now, don’t get me wrong. We should all go for what makes us happy and live life the way we want, as long as it doesn’t hurt others. Drew hurt Morgan. He cause irreparable damage to her. He forever altered the way she looked at sex and love and not necessarily in a good way.

Dawson was the perfect gentleman. He loved Morgan and gave her what she needed when she was recovering. However, because of Drew, that was never enough. I felt so bad for Dawson. He deserved to be loved unconditionally and passionately. Morgan just wasn’t that person. Drew made sure of that.

While I’m not happy with the ending, I understand it. Things happen. People make choices we don’t agree with, it’s their life and they have to live it the way they want.

I have definite plans to read Underestimated Too. I have to get inside Drew’s head and see what the hell he was thinking. His reasons for doing this to Morgan are horrible. He’s a true asshole! I have to see what he was thinking.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: End of the Innocence by Alessandra Torre

end of the innocense

He thought I owned him. He thought he loved me, that I was enough. But this animal, this sex god who could drive me crazy and steal my heart in the same breath, he would never be fully mine. It was impossible. No one ever owns a God.

...I looked at Brad, his legs spread, still fully dressed, settled into a chair, his bare cock upright and fisted, his palm slowly stroking its length...

End-of-the-Innocence_kindleSo the time has come for us to say arrivederci to Brad and Julia. Their relationship is one that I'll treasure forever. Their connection is unforgettable, desirable and I just GOT them. Brad and Julia are one of the most honest and straight forward couple I've read. There's no mind games or hidden agendas between them. What you see is what you get. They helped each other evolve with past relationships, become more secure within themselves though there is that small vulnerability that they each have but it doesn't outshine what they grew into; which is a love that is powerful, strong and highly sexual.

If you haven't read the previous books, I highly recommend you do so you can see how they grew and how they continue to grow with the extended epilogue and bonus chapter(which are on her website). There are some sex scenes (Birthday sex...THUD) that literally left me breathless and put a huge smile on my face. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the threesome scenes. Even though others come into play during their sex, you still see the connection with Brad and Julia. GAH! There are really no words for them. I can not express enough my love for them.

What else can I say that I haven't already said before in my previous reviews about the author? Alessandra's writes her stories that are engaging, smooth flowing and erotic. She will be an author that as soon as I hear her story is released, I will drop what I'm doing and get to reading her work.

* I could have written a 20 paragraph review but seriously...ain't nobody got time for that! Go to your favorite website provider and purchase the book. I promise you will not be disappointed*

Author Bio:

I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full time employee. Life is crazy and busy!  I started writing again for a group of women I met last year. They brought back the passion for writing I haven’t seen since high school. Starting this process was tedious and nerve-wracking, but my amazing ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.


I wanted her here with me.  Please, come back to me, Sabrina.

Bre and I were connected.  Our souls were one.  We were both fucked up and broken, but together we made each other whole again. 

I couldn’t stay away, I sat on the side of the bed, took her hand mine, and started stroking my thumb over her knuckles again.  I wish I could hold her in my arms, pull her into me, and place a deep kiss on her tender lips.  I wanted to feel her heart beat on my chest as I held her close to me, snuggled safe in our bed.

The door swung open, bringing me out of my thoughts.  Jon walked in carrying food and a change of clothes.  He set a stack of paperwork down on the windowsill and turned toward me. 

“Caston, you need to go home, get some rest.  You can’t live by her side.  The doctors aren’t sure when, or if, she will wake up.”

My head snapped up, and I stared him down.  “Are you fucking kidding me right now?  Can you honestly tell me that if this was Sara you’d leave her alone like this?  Do you know she moved today?”

His eyes widened, and he moved closer to her bed.  “I know, buddy, but maybe you just thought she did.  I mean they said that muscles twitch and shit when people are in comas.”

A man whose lifestyle is so different from her own…

Nic Dalton’s cupcake bakery is thriving. She serves both rock stars and locals alike, content with her growing business. But one adventurous night out with her best friend, Bailey, turns her life upside down. She meets a handsome stranger who makes her skin sizzle and her heart race. Their one night together is explosive and unexpected, but when he has to suddenly leave without taking her phone number, Nic resigns herself to never seeing him again.

Matt Montgomery is one of Seattle’s finest. He works hard, loves and protects his family fiercely, and is loyal almost to a fault.

When he meets Nic at a fetish festival, the small, beautiful woman catches his eye, drawing him to her. His one night with her was everything he’s ever looked for in a partner, but is cut short because of a family emergency. Even before he sees her again weeks later, he knows he’ll never get her out of his system.

And he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.

“Give in to this, Nic. Let me prove to you that I will be one of the best decisions you ever make.” –Matt Montgomery

Character Interview
Nadine here! I am beyond excited. I’m happily awaiting Nic Dalton, the heroine from Kristen Proby’s latest installment in the With Me in Seattle series, Tied With Me. Oh I see her now!

Hi Nic! Thank you so much for meeting me at Vintage. I know your Sundays are usually Bailey time, so I promise to be quick.
Thanks for inviting me! It's a pleasure to meet you.

Tied With Me is yours and Matt’s story. This was a spicy read. I loved how you were open to trying something so out of your norm. What made you go for it? What was it about that first encounter with Matt at the festival that compelled you to let him demonstrate his ropes?
The man is sexy as all get-out for starters. But more than that there's something about him that just makes me WANT to please him, to do as he asks. It's really difficult to explain.

The end of your first night of passion with him, while satisfying, didn’t exactly end well. I mean the guy ran out on you without so much as getting your number. Did you ever expect to see him again? What was the first thought that entered your mind when you saw Matt at Brynna’s wedding?
No, I never expected to run into Matt again. When I first saw him at the wedding, I think my first thought was, "holy shit!"

I love how he calls you little one. I swear when he called you on the phone after the wedding and said it, chills ran down my arms. Do you have a special nickname for him?
Isn't he sweet? Hmm... I don't really have a specific nickname for Matt. Well, not one that he'll let me share.

You’ve been immersed in Matt’s brand of kink for a while now. That man certainly makes use of some interesting tying implements. Which has been your favorite? Anything new we haven’t seen?
Let me think... favorite... Well, it's always fun when he uses the apron. There are all kinds of uses for that! Not long ago he made use of my favorite scarf. I think I'll be "cold" more often.

 So, what’s next for you guys? Are you ready for him to pop the big question yet or does that make you nervous?
It's still pretty early for us. I'm content knowing that we're committed to each other and plan to be together for a very, very long time.

Alright, alright that’s it for the tough questions. Thank you so much for meeting me here. Before I go though, just one more question. You had Adam-freaking-Levine in your cupcake shop. How in the hell did you not kidnap that man and stow him away upstairs? *sigh* Seriously, though what was that encounter like?
Most of us were pretty much speechless during  that encounter. But Adam's soooo nice, and just as good looking in person as he is on TV. Now that Leo Nash? He's in almost daily, and I must admit, I have a bit of a crush on that one. Hello, hot rock star. *winks*

Yeah who wouldn’t have a crush on hot rocker Leo Nash?! Again, thank you, Nic, for taking the time to meet me today.
