“Ever f*cked a pirate?”
He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.
Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.
Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?
“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”
But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?
Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.
This book is adult and intended for a mature audience with strong elements of language, sex, and a dirty mouthed pirate. It has cases of BDSM, kink, and violence.
My Rating: 5 stars
Holy Fuck, what an amazing book. Wow. Where the heck have I been? Seriously how come have I not read any of this author’s books? Because Blood Script blew me away. Technically Blood Script had enough blood pumping storyline to make my heart go on a frenzy. Blood Script was my first book from Airicka Phoenix and as I said where have I been because this book was freaking fantastic. Blood Script was a story that gave me so much excitement that I could not contain at all. I wanted to shout at the heavens at how freaking phenomenal this book was to me. I was so hooked. Blood Script offered a unique and fast pacing dark romance that had enough edge to cause so many chills down my spine.
Blood Script totally brought out the suspense I crave in a book. I was submerged in all the drama that it seriously made me question my insanity at times. Wickedly brilliant. Electrifying. Gritty. Blood Script was a tempting story of pirates, toe curling tension, sexual control and sin. It was a gush of wind that rattled my heart. It was a crippling effect of epic proportions that fueled the fire inside me. I was stunned. I was pulled in. I was riveted. Blood Script was panty melting mix of goodness that brought enough pleasure in me. Airicka Phoenix definitely impressed me. She brought enough artistry and difference to the book that definitely sparked with life. It was genius to me. Blood Script kind of reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean but more edgier, more darker, more modern and oozing with red hot passion enough to burn a hole in my soul and enough to give me pulsing hot tremors on my skin. Blood Script definitely was a phenomenal read.
In a book, the characters make the book interesting. And let me tell you, James and Cora really stood out for me in this book. Wow. They had that spicy hot chemistry that was both tongue waging but also with enough chemistry to get me on the edge of my seat. It was beautiful. It was sexy. It was deliciously indulgent. It was undeniable smack on your face erotic. I felt it in my veins. They were definitely one of my favourite couple. Yes. James and Cora ticked my bones in a good way. I was invested on their thoughts together as a couple.
Cora really shocked me as a heroine. I love my heroine with enough fight and drive and Cora had it. She was feisty, strong and badass woman that really made me love her. I definitely would want to her best friend. She is that type of heroine you could have fun with. I also that she had vulnerability without her being weak. It added a good element to her character. James reminded me Captain Jack Sparrow but hotter, sexier and just perfect. I loved him. Omg, he was delicious. He made my ovaries melt. Sweet baby that man was just on a league of his own. He was a fine piece of man that I wanted to take on a wild ride with. Oh gosh his mouth, his cockiness and his dominance was sexy as hell. I want him. Man, he was a dangerous criminal but he made my blood boil. I loved every moment of it.
Blood Script introduced me to a fantastic author I will be stalking more of. I want more of her books. This story was a hold on tight kind of read. So be ready.

What Others Are Saying:
“I ADORED every single second of this book.” ~Between The Bookends
“In true Ella Fox style I Don't is fan-freaking-tasting! It is intriguing, sexy and has a wonderful story.” ~Reader Review
“I Don’t is a steamy, suspenseful read.” ~Three Chicks
“It's Mr. Gretchen isn't it?”
“Um, no,” Ben answered, “This is most definitely not Mr. Gretchen.”
“Okayyy,” I drawled. “You’re acting weird, so I have to assume it’s someone unusual. Is it the President? George Clooney? Oh, wait. I know. It’s Channing Tatum. If I’ve told him once, I’ve told him a dozen times not to call me at work—"
“Not even close. This man—he says he’s your fiancé.”
My heart stopped beating for several seconds. When it started up again, I assured myself I was asleep. Yep, that had to be it. I was having a nightmare. With my free hand, I pinched my thigh, wincing at the twinge of pain. Dammit, I was awake.
No, no, no, I chanted inwardly as I started to panic. I was nowhere near ready to deal with him. Surely he wouldn’t have tracked me down at work. With me gone, he should be living the bachelor life to the fullest, so busy dealing with his social calendar that thinking of me was impossible. I prayed that there was some kind of mistake or that whoever was on the phone wasn’t him. Maybe it was someone calling for another Ava. That could happen, right?
“His voice,” I whispered. “Does he sound—”
“Spanish?” Ben supplied. “Yeah.”
I’d been about to ask if he sounded like a stubborn son-of-a-bitch, but Spanish told me what I needed to know.
My Rating: 4 stars
OMG, This book was utterly perfection. I am so serious when I tell you that I was left with a big grin when I finished reading it. I could not help but just be fully happy about this book. Ella Fox is beyond my favourite authors when I started out reading romance. Back then, I used to read her Hart Family series and I loved it. Now he has another book based on another on the Cruz Family. I wear it is going to be sexy, sweet and oh so perfect.
I Don't was a charming book that made me drool and my knees all weak. It was a book that made me smile, laugh, angry and flat out fell in love with it. Indulgent. Seductive. Intriguing. I Don't gave a mix of power and sexiness that dripped in honey and ecstasy. It was spicy. It was smoking hot that I could feel the red hot passion seeping from its pages. I was definitely swimming in this book fantastic page. I Don't gave a define level of pent up sauciness that made me melt and swoon. The story was off the charts perfection. I swear I thought my kindle would burst and short circuit with the heat. The writing was so sublime that I was fully soaked in the words that I found myself devouring this book. Ella Fox knows how to certainly write the perfect story with a hint of angst, drama and naughtiness that speaks volumes. I was fully immersed in her writing. I Don't is a true summer read that you can fully take to the beach and get lost in it.
I Don't introduced me to Mateo Cruz and Avelina Saez, a couple with such a beautiful and smoking chemistry that was off the charts. Man, I swear these two were perfect together. Avelina was bold, strong, stubborn and loving. I love heroines like her who are able to go toe to toe with their alpha males. She is the epitome of a sexy and successful woman with a vulnerability and steadfast nature that made her so likable. I adored her. Mateo, My Spanish Alpha. OMG, i WANTED TO BE WRAPPED IN HIS ARMS LOL. I wanted him to speak Spanish to me as he serenades me. Hahaha. He made me swoon, drool and set my ovaries on fire. Dominant. Hot. Asshole at times. He was that alpha that set me fire. Both Mateo and Avelina had that sexiness that really made freaking sigh.
I Don't is definitely going to my list of favourite reads. I can't wait until the next book. I know it is going to be freaking amazing.

For the last year and a half, you could sum up my life in one word… disastrous.
One simple phone call was all it took to change my life forever.
If I could go back and do it again, what would I change?
What should have been one of the best days of my life turned into the absolute worst. Cast in a shadow that turns my days dark, and my nights even darker.
Before I can put the pain of the past behind me, I need to fix what’s broken.
The first step is believing it can be done, the second is forgiveness.
But forgiveness doesn’t come easy, least of all for who is to blame.
For every choice, there are consequences.
Some simply unforgivable.
One poor choice made me the target of a sociopath.
And once again, I’m reminded just how cruel life can be.
I’ve come to learn after every storm, the sun shines again.
And, someone taught me life is only worth living if you smile.
It took almost losing him for me to understand.
What would I change?
Everything, but him!
My Rating: 5 stars
Wow, what a truly amazing book filled with so much loss, pain and tragedy that I certainly had tears in my eyes while I was read. Never I had a book that pulled me in so deep and make me so emotional that all my of me was just shaking. This is my first book by Heidi Lis and I was definitely impressed by her words that reflected such deep love, pain and sorrow. I fell in love with everything about it. I was drowned in it.
Losing Hope is about Hope Emerson, a young woman who went through such a deep ordeal and is trying to move on from her life. She meets new loves and new friends as she tries to navigate her life. This book made me into an emotional mess. I was completely had my heart completely twisted out while reading. Losing Hope was a celebration of life. It was a story of moving on from pain. It was a story about healing from a tragedy. I was completely swept away by the true beauty of this story. Raw. Poignant. Heartwarming. Heart wrenching. Honest. Losing Hope embodied the strength and fight of a woman. The writing itself was impeccable that it left such a significant imprint in me. Yeah it did have some hot scenes but I loved the message it gave me. If You are faced with such untold pain, all you need to have faith and hope because things will be alright in the end.
Losing Hope was all about Hope. She was center of this book and the man character in my eyes. She was faced with so much in her life. I felt for her more but I could relate to her. We all go through pain in our lives but it is how we try to move on from it. I saw strength in Hope. I saw a woman so damaged but still had fight in her. I saw a woman plagued by guilt but still tried to let go. Hope was a beautiful woman and I totally adored who she was was. She was honest through and through.
Losing Hope is certainly the book to read and it made me want to read more books by Heidi Lis. There is talent in her writing but also there is something absolutely entrancing about it.

K.A Linde always delivers hard hitting romances with so much dram and angst. She does it so well that you cannot be helped but be pulled into her web of amazing and swoon stories. When you read K.A. Linde she gives you an experience into her world that brings you so much decadence and allure that you just simply have to read her books. The Wright Brother was a tantalizing read that gave me such a sweet ride that I did not want to end.
The Wright Brother is a sweet and sexy story that made you heart flutter and so warm inside. I felt I was just floating in air and just giving an beautiful sigh because this book was just so magical. Addictive. Incredible. Moving. Swoon worthy. K.A. Linde wrote a book that was so fresh and care free but also melted my heart and caused the sweetest explosion ever. It was as sweet as a candy and all I wanted was to take a lick of everything The Wright Brother had to offer. There were parts I felt I wanted more. I was a bit underwhelmed but they was a good delivery of plot that I found myself enjoying.
The characters added something extra dynamic to the story. I found their thoughts so enthralling and engaging. Jensen was an asshole but he was alpha and sweet at times. I was swooning hard for him. I loved Emery. She was spunky. brash and fun. They definitely had undeniable chemistry that was genuine and hot sometimes.
The Wright Brother was an enjoyable read that made me so happy.

Entice Me is a contemporary Romance novella that explores the adventures of Nikki Fairchild and Damien Stark. You have to read the Stark Series to be able to understand Entice Me. Written by one of my favourite authors J. Kenner, Entice Me combines a sultry and erotic seduction with a passion filled and illicit edge. Entice Me took me to a journey filled with drama, love and pleasure that certainly piqued my attention and gave me the best feelings.
Entice Me follows the lives of Nikki and Damien as a married couple. I was so excited that J. Kenner was going to write more books on Nikki and Damien. I happen to love this couple hard and they always give a sense of contentment when I read about them. Reading Entice Me totally enticed me and enthralled me. It is such a phenomenal read that I can’t help but fall in love with the book. For a novella, I was so pulled into the story and transported into the pages of the book. One can’t help but be swept away by the Stark World because it is that one world that brings you joy and warms your heart. J. Kenner always pulls you into her world and makes you so satisfied whenever you are reading books. Her writing is always impeccable and that is why I never stopped reading her books from the day I started reading her books. I was hooked from the first page to the last page.
Nikki and Damien are the perfect couple. They have that chemistry that is both flawless and just right. I love them because they each have flaws but they are a unit. Damien was one of those first book boyfriends I loved when I started reading romance. I was in love lol. Till this day, he still has the ability to make swoon hard and make my ovaries sing the happiest tunes. Cliché, I know. He is always dark, foreboding and dominant. He puts you in a spell that you never want to come out of at all. Nikki is such a sassy and strong woman. She has flaws that make the bravest but yet vulnerable. And I love that about her a lot.
Entice me is a novella you have to read. The whole Stark Series is the series you have to sink your heart into. Trust me, it is amazing. I am so excited for the next book of Nikki and Damien. I know it going to epic and I am so ready to be swept away.

My Rating: 4 stars
Holy Smokes, what a sensual and seductive book. Wow, Disarmed was a book I totally loved to bits. There were so much passion and love written in this book that I was so glued to the book. I even devoured this book like I was devouring a piece of cake. Disarmed was certainly a guilty pleasure that I wanted a bite of more and more. To make it much sweeter is that this is my first book by Eva LeNoir. What a debut for me. Omg, the story captivated and consumed me.
Disarmed is a story about art connoisseur Jade who leads a double life. By day she in charge of an art gallery. By night, she submits herself to her Masters, Miles and Carson. However, Miles feels and wants more. This story was a unique BDSM story. It had elements that brought out angst, emotion and an extra powerful edge that was beautifully written and perfectly executed. Every scene in Disarmed flowed so easily that I was able to follow the story. I really enjoyed the role of domination and submission in the story. It had more depth and it gave a more distinctive dynamic to the story. Plus the sex scenes were hot. I was fanning myself the entire time lol. However, I wanted more. There were parts that I felt I needed to know more. They were just too rushed that I found myself not connecting with certain areas.
Miles and Jade have genuine chemistry that was off the charts. I would have wanted the author to explore Miles and Jade more together as a couple. Jade was strong. She had an independent nature that I really loved but still be able to submit to Miles. She had a vulnerability that gave her an extra edge to her. Mile was protective and so alpha. Omg, his dominant side was sexy but I loved that she had moment were he was there for Jade.
Disarmed was a charming and refreshing book to me. I loved it and it definitely exposed me to an author I will be reading more of.

"Every pawn is a potential queen. – James Mason
Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so excited to bring you the most amazing story of this century, The Pawn, an edgy, sensual and seductive story that will have you at the edge of your feet and give you the most illicit shivers ever. Damn, I was so in love with this book. It was that book that just oozed dark romance perfection at its finest. I was simply in love with everything in this book. I am a huge fan of Skye Warren and she definitely outdid herself with The Pawn. Wow, I am in awe.
“You taste like I’m fucking dying and you’re the only water around. You taste like goddamn air.”
The Pawn is about the story of a naive girl, Avery who is led into a dangerous game with a billionaire Gabriel Miller. Wow, this story was so mind blowing. The Pawn was a dangerous, gritty and suspenseful book that had me reeling. I felt like I was in a movie. I am telling The Pawn gave me the most amazing goosebumps that I could feel it my skin. Wow, I was so addicted like a person who is addicted to alcohol and drugs. The Pawn was my own personal drug and I wanted to live in the high it gave me. The Pawn was pushed to its greatest heights. I was captured from the first page to the last. The Pawn was like a cat and mouse game but with a dangerous and high stakes. Skye Warren truly wrote a magnificent book. She is a genius. I would love to go into her brain and know how she comes with stories like this. (I am fangirling here a bit lol). The Pawn oozed dark and grit in its beautiful form. Not only was it suspense but there was a story of sacrifice. How far are you willing to go to help the ones you love even though you know it will cost you your reputation and also a piece of you?Yep, this story will cripple you and bury you but in a good way.
"A little bird in a gilded cage. Why keep one except to hear her sing?"
Avery is such a naive girl. I mean there were times I wanted to shake her to her senses. But she had a quiet strength to her that made her such a likable character. I loved her journey as a woman. I always love when I read a woman discovery her sexual self. I saw her developing chapter by chapter. It was such delightful process to read.
"He’s like a puppet master , moving me faster and faster until I come apart."
Gabriel, Oh my Gabriel. What a man. My gosh, I absolutely fell in love with me. He was dangerous, unpredictable, harsh and so secretive. I wanted to know more about him. He had that swagger and edge that was just so darn sexy. Aaa, I want to have his babies lol. Gabriel also had moments of vulnerability that I wanted to know more. There is more to him and I cannot wait to know a bit more in the next book.
The Pawn is one of those books that will forever be etched in my ind. I really cannot wait for the next book because there is so much I want to find out. With Skye Warren, I know it is going to be a wild epic ride.

A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 29
To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.

As my papa’s G5 began its descent, I looked out of the window beside me and waited for the plane to break through the clouds. I held my breath, body tense, then suddenly the burnt-orange remnants of daylight flooded the plane, bathing the interior with a soft, golden glow. I inhaled deeply. Italia.
Fields and fields of green and yellow created a patchwork quilt below, rolling hills and crystal-blue lakes stretching as far the eye could see. I smiled as a sense of warmth ran through me.
It was the most beautiful place on earth.
Sitting back in my wide cream leather chair, I closed my eyes and tried to prepare myself for what was coming. I was flying to Florence airport, from where I would be swiftly taken to the Palazzo Savona estate just outside of the city.
I would meet Prince Zeno.
I had met him twice before—once when I was four, of which I had no memory, and again when I was ten. The interaction we’d had as children had been brief. If I was being honest, I had found Zeno to be arrogant and rude. He had been thirteen at the time and not at all interested in meeting a ten-year-old girl from America.
Neither of us had known at the time that that our betrothal had been agreed upon two years prior. It turned out that the trip my papa had taken to Umbria when I was eight was to secure a forever-bond between the Savonas and the Acardis. King Santo and my father had planned for their only children to marry. They were already joined in business; Zeno’s arranged marriage to me would also strengthen both families’ place in society.
I thought back on my New York farewell of nine hours ago and sighed. My parents had driven me to the private hangar and said their goodbyes. My mama cried—her only child was leaving her for a new life. My papa, although sad to see me go, beamed at me with the utmost pride. He had held me close and whispered, “I have never been more proud of you than I am right now, Caresa. Savona Wines’ stock has plummeted since Santo’s death. This union will reassure all the shareholders that our business is still strong. That we are still a stable company with Zeno at the helm.”
I had given him a tight smile and boarded the plane with a promise that they would see me before the wedding. And that had been that.
I was to marry Zeno, and I hadn’t protested even once. I imagined to most modern-day women living in New York, the process of arranged marriages sounded positively medieval, even barbaric. For a blue blood, it was simply a part of life.
King Santo Savona died two months ago. The shareholders of his many Italian vineyards, the stakeholders in Savona Wines, had expected his son, Zeno, to immediately step up and take charge. Instead, Zeno had plunged himself into the party scene even harder than before—and that was quite a feat. Within weeks my papa had flown out to Umbria to see what could be done.
The answer: our imminent union.
My Rating: 5 stars
What a beautiful book. Omg. What an absolute gorgeous story. I simply could not help but fall in love with it. This is my first Tillie Cole book. Shocking, right?I was just blown away by the story. I mean, this book screamed love and heart. I just could not help but be swept with the story and live in the moment because this book completely had me spellbound. I was completely and utterly amazed by A Veil of Vines as a whole. It was just perfect.
A Veil Of Vines is a modern fairy tale of royalty, nobility, heart, pain, destiny and true love set in the beautiful wine lands of Italy. It was such a beautifully written story full of emotions and intensity that truly and irrevocably touched my heart, body, mind and soul. The story itself was so unique and different that I was just blown away. It is one of those stories that screamed originality and perfection. i was so engaged with the story. Tillie Cole knows how to write a book. Her descriptions were so vivid that it felt that I was in the story itself feeling the emotions and actions. I was definitely moved to the story. Oh yes. I was emotionally wrecked by mot parts that they trully touched me to the depths of soul. Tillie Cole definitely gave a piece of literature that had so much purpose. I commend her for that. Plus her sex scenes were so sensual and full of passion and love that wow, I thought my kindle will burst into flames.
A Veil of Vine introduces to facts about on philosophical and deeper level of soulmates that the characters to me were the real deal even thought it i fiction. We were introduced to Caresa and Achille, two different people from different worlds who destined to be. I love them as a couple. They had that raw chemistry that made an amazing couple to read. Caresa was a strong heroine and also vulnerable. There was a balance to her that made her so likable. Achille, oh Achille, I loved him. I loved him that he was genuine and authentic. You do not be cocky or dominant but just loving and caring. And Achille definitely nailed that. Italians always do it best lol.
A Veil of Vine was a story that really touched me to the core. I loved it. I will definitely be reading more books from Tillie Cole. I am definitely a fan

Why the fuck is Kira at this party?
I have no right to begrudge her this. She should be here, having fun, experiencing college to the fullest.
It just burns that she came here without telling me. That she didn’t even think of inviting me.
That she’s pushing me away while making time to sit on the grass with Austin.
If Dana hadn’t told Ryan to call me, I wouldn’t have known Kira was here.
This party is taking place in one of the student’s homes—a mansion so fucking big, it’s bordering on ridiculous.
I’m never going to find Kira here, and according to what Dana told Ryan, Kira’s shitfaced. Drunk out of her mind.
And Dana lost her.
Growling under my breath, I push past the crowd, ignoring every drunk girl who tries to grope me.
Sometimes I wonder how I ever got high off this kind of attention. How my ego fed on it. It’s annoying as fuck.
I’ve already checked the large ass kitchen. Two of the sitting rooms. The foyer. The pool room. And almost every room upstairs.
I get a text from Dana. Marilyn just spotted her going into the movie theater on the first floor. OMW there now.
Of course this place has a movie theater, too.
Fucking ridiculous, as I said.
I about-face and practically fly down the stairs. I have no idea where the hell the movie theater is, so I grab a few people as I walk and ask them.
All of them are as clueless as I am.
They look at me as if I’m crazy.
To them, I probably look like I am.
Finally, I find one person who knows. Don’t know who he is, don’t care. He points me in the right direction, and I rush away without even thanking him.
The theater is all the way in the back of the house, in an area that’s actually empty. I get there in time to see Dana opening the door and rushing in.
Man, she’s an awesome girl. I could never thank her enough for caring for Kira the way she obviously does.
I go inside and find the small theater empty, except for Dana, Marilyn . . .
My breath whooshes out of me at the sight of her. I’m instantly hard, aching, furious, and possessive.
We haven’t fucked in days and I’d be lying if I said my balls aren’t full to bursting. I need sex right now like I need air and she’s the only person to give it to me.
But she came here, in that tiny, dark purple dress.
I have no right to tell her how to dress--but what the fuck is she doing coming to a party dressed like that without me?
Kira’s leaning against one of the chairs all the way at the front of the theater, refusing to move despite Marilyn urging her.
It’s obvious she really is drunk as a motherfucker.
“I just want to be alone, guys,” she says, almost whining.
I refuse to be amused. Now’s not the time. I’m too pissed at her.
But, fuck me. She’s sexy, adorable, and those lips are begging for my cock.
“I know, sweetie. But it’s not good for you to be alone right now.”
Kira swats Marilyn away. “Stop your shit, woman. You’re not my mother.”
Even Dana laughs at that one.
“She’s not. But I’m your man. And I say you’re not going to be alone.”
They all turn to stare at me as I walk down the short steps toward them.
Kira’s eyes flare with resentment.
She rakes me with a cold stare that still manages to burn my entire body with how hungry it is.
Damn. If any of these girls just happen to look down a bit, they’re going to get an eyeful of how hard my dick is.
“I don’t want you here, either.” She swats me away like an imperious little queen.
“Girls. Leave us.”
Marilyn and Dana hesitate at my tone.
I don’t have time for this shit. “Now.”
Dana snaps to action first and leads Marilyn up the stairs and out of the theater.
Kira’s still looking at me with that rebellious hunger, a lust-filled sneer on her face.
I have no qualms about reaching down and palming my dick in front of her.
Her eyes flare hungrily.
“We’re leaving, Kitty. Now.” I can’t fuck her until she sobers up considering how angry at me she is, but I’m getting her home.
Kira steps toward me and stumbles at bit.
I rush forward and catch her, pulling her up against me.
Contact. Seering, torturous contact. I have my arms wrapped around her, my hands on her ass, before I realize what I’m doing. As always, it’s an instant reaction. Absolutely zero control over my own body.
Kira pushes at my chest and that sexy small growl she gives me turns me on so much. “Don’t touch me.”
My barely leashed temper snaps free. “Like hell. You’re mine.”
She struggles against me, her body sliding along mine. “Excuse me if I don’t want to go back to fucking the dick I’ve seen inside Jennifer two too many times.”
She’s hurting. I get it. Shit, I’d be even more feral in her shoes.
But I’ll be damned if I let her pretend she doesn’t want me anymore.
Fisting her hair, I slide my other hand under her dress and roughly shove her panties to side.
Kira lets out a broken gasp at the feel of my fingers slipping inside her.
I move them around on purpose so she can hear how wet she is. “Lie to me again. Tell me you don’t want me,” I growl in her face.
Her arms wind around my neck and she slams her lips against mine. Growling at me like she hates me and wants to eat me at the same time, she kisses me with everything she has.
Trying to control me.
I want nothing more than to show her who’s fucking in charge here, but she’s licking my tongue like it’s the tip of my dick, and her hips are thrusting up and down, fucking my fingers.
Using me for her pleasure.
Her body locks up, her plump pussy swelling around my fingers. A throb, a rush of liquid, and she’s squirting into my hand, her sexy moans echoing between our lips.
I manhandle her, my mind cracking under the pressure of so much need. Spinning, I fall to my knees on the short steps and place her beneath me.
The steps are short but they’re huge. Enough to accommodate her lower body on one.
Kira leans back with her elbows on the step above her. Head thrown back, gorgeous throat exposed, she struggles to pull in air.
I lean back on my haunches and yank my belt open.
The sound makes her raise her head. By the time her eyes are on my crotch, I already have my glistening cock out in my hand.
She whispers my name like a prayer.
This is what I need. No more distance. No more pain. Just her and her nearly demonic need to have me.
And I need this even more.
I grab her thighs and tug her toward me. Kira says my name again. Her hands land on my shoulders, fisting my shirt.
I spread her legs wide, wider than I probably should, and slide that juicy cunt right onto my dick.
Her body arches off the stairs like she’s being possessed.
If I haven’t left enough of me inside her for her to understand—for her to accept—that I own her and always will . . .
I’m going to remedy that.
And there’s nothing she can do about it.
I pull my hips back, slow, hissing at the slick feel of her pussy walls tightening. Trying to keep me in.
Kira whimpers, clenching me even harder.
Wanting to let me go and powerless to do anything but keep me.
Using all my strength, I slam back into her.
One hard, vicious thrust.
She cries out and comes all over me.
Just like that.
I crack my neck, a growl purring through my chest, and lay into her. No mercy. No thought.
I’m close. Just a few more pumps into that slick cunt.
Kira fists my hair, her moans bouncing off the walls around us. I lower myself down and brace my elbows on either side of her head.
She tries to tug me down and kiss me.
I slide one hand beneath her head, fisting that beautiful hair, and drag her up to me. “Who told you that you could come here dressed like that?”
She bites my lip hard enough to make my vision snap white. I think I taste blood. “Fuck you. You don’t own m—” She chokes on her words with my next thrust.
I can’t stop groaning, yet somehow I’m laughing in her face at the ridiculousness of her statement. “You want to keep fucking lying to yourself, Kitty?”
She hisses like the wild cat she is and leans up to lick across my bottom lip. When she pulls back, I see it.
Her lips are stained with the blood she drew from me.
I press my lips to her, our tongues dueling. We’re nothing but a mindless mass of sex, and I can feel the come rising up my shaft.
In the back of my head, it registers that I hear people speaking.
On the other side of the door.
“That bitch ruined my life!”
“First off, don’t ever call her a bitch in front of me. Got it? Secondly, you have no proof it was her that sent your parents that video. Third, back the fuck off, or I’m going to forget we were ever—”
The door opens.
I raise my head enough to look up. For a split second, the fact that we’ve been caught freezes me.
Then I see two pairs of familiar blue eyes locked on us.
My Rating : 5 stars
Damn, what a book. Never in my wildest dreams would I have a book that would make me a bit mad. I felt like I was high on some weird shit I tell after reading Own. After reading Need and Take, I had to read Own because these books really made me lose my damn mind. I was so blown away with the storyline. Wow, Own was a perfect conclusion to Brayden and Kira's story. It was such a beautiful story told with so much conviction and poise that my eyes were so glued to the story. I was definitely owned by Own.
Own is the third book in the Need Series. You must read Need and Take first to be able to understand the story. I was pulled into the story like the first two. The story itself was so beautifully written and so immaculate. Everything in the book was woven together. I found myself in a trance reading Own. I loved that most things are resolved. I had so may questions and I am glad that they were answered. Own was a steamy book full of angst, heart and emotions. It was such an emotionally charged book that had my heart pounding with excitement. I was at my edge of my seat. There was a good balance of plot vs sex scenes. And man oh man, those sex scenes were on fire just like the previous books in the series. I thought that my kindle would combust with the heat and also the sexual tension. Wow, they were red hot. K.I. Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco know how write a sex scenes and give a good quality balance. I was in awe. Definitely was the perfect conclusion.
At first Kira annoyed me sometimes but I loved that she was such a strong character. She had moments that made her so lovable. She got to be really badass and I loved that. Brayden, oh Brayden, such an amazing and dirty mouth he has. Lol. He made me tingle in the right place. Wow. I wish he was real. I could give him a ride of his life lol. Anyway he was an asshole at first but I loved that he got to prove himself. I was really happy about that.
Brayden and Kira have that chemistry that rocked my socks off. I loved their banter that just made me feel so happy and swoon. They were the perfect couple. They were so comfortable together. What a journey they both had together as a couplr.
Own was a perfect story that was flawless. It definitely gets a slot on my favourite books of 2016. It certainly deserves it. Judging by the teaer in the book, can't wait for the next book
