✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I feel like I should start by saying that as much as this is book 2 in The Naked Nights Series, I have read this without having read book 1 and I honestly don’t feel as though I’ve missed anything crucial that would have affected my enjoyment of this book.
This book combines the characters from some of Ava’s other books and puts them in this enjoyable and funny adventure. I think the characters are very realistic and likeable, each has their own very distinct personalities, but they still work extremely well together. The dance routines are described in such detail that they are easy to picture the guys performing each of them.
Strip Down is a good and quick read, and I enjoyed meeting these characters for the first time and following their antics down under. I’m now looking forward to catching up on some of the other books surrounding these characters and their individual lives.
If you’re looking for a quick, enjoyable, and funny read then I would recommend Strip Down.

Rory has made a new life for herself since escaping the Death’s Head MC sex slave ring. Her company is global, her baby boy is a blessing, and her best friend is her housemate. Haunted by memories of a traumatic past, she’s shocked when she comes face to face with the biker who saved her, the man she was forced to leave behind. Desperate to protect herself and the secrets she’s kept hidden, she pushes Quake away.

For over a year, Quake hasn’t been able to forget the beautiful redheaded shifter who slipped through his fingers. But the passion they’d shared has turned into nothing but cold, hard embers. While visiting New York, the Hell’s Fury MC enforcer stumbles across her picture on the internet and manages to track her down. The reunion isn’t anything like he’s dreamed. Rory is different, distant, and living a new life.

When her baby is kidnapped, Rory learns her past isn’t as buried as she’d hoped. Suddenly, the Death’s Head MC threatens all that she holds dear. Catapulted into a world she’d once escaped, Rory must fight to save herself and her child.

Feeling responsible for not killing the Death’s Head MC President, Khan, as he’d promised, Quake offers the Hell’s Fury MC to help find Rory’s son. Forced to put aside their differences and work together, he quickly learns that the chemistry between them is still there. When events take a twisted turn and fate reveals its hand, Quake realizes that there’s more at stake than either of them could have imagined.

Rory is a second-chance, secret-baby erotic MC romance with adult situations and potential triggers, written for Ages 18+.

Guarded Hearts Season One features The Order of the Phoenix. Season Two features members of The Order of the Dragon, Hell’s Fury MC, who appear as secondary characters in Season One. Quake and Rory’s story begins in Hell’s Fury MC: Dangerous Curves (Guarded Hearts Book 7.5/Season Two Prequel), part of the Twisted Steel 2 MC Anthology out 13 April 2021. Rory can be enjoyed as a standalone, but your experience will be enhanced by reading their back story first.

CEO February: Brax Danvers by Tracie Podger

✫.•° About The Book °•.✫

American in London, Brax Danver, was bored of his usual hook ups.

While walking his dog one evening, Brax stumbled across a clearing and a couple creating their own entertainment. It seemed they were happy to put on a show for him.

As CEO of a high class marketing agency, Brax should have been working on a pitch for a celebrity chef. Instead, he was being entertained in the clearing way more than he should be.

When Darryl Jacobs fell over Brax’s dog lead, he fell into an exhibitionist’s dream.

The CEO series of erotic novellas is for readers over the age of 18 and most certainly contain scenes that are super hot. #OneHandedReads

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

Novella two in this twelve-novella series introduces us to Brax Danvers.

There is just enough of a back story to make you feel like you know the main characters, but without knowing them too well! There is plenty of steamy hotness to make you hot under the collar too.
CEO February is another enjoyable, short, steamy straight to the point story that can be read whilst enjoying your favourite cuppa, maybe even during a lunch break, depending on how quick you read!

I love how Tracie’s writing style pulls you straight into the story and keeps your attention throughout.

I am enjoying these short novellas as they are a great way to distract my mind and escape from the real world for a short space of time.

Roll on CEO March.

🖤 My Review 🖤

I finished reading Black Canvas a week ago and it has taken a few days to organise my thoughts and feeling into coherent sentences for this review.

Black Canvas is dark and twisted from the beginning. This book will play with your mind, it will have you guessing and questioning what you read, it might even make you question your own level crazy too.

I found that Laura Rossi’s writing style captured my attention from the beginning and held it until the very end. Even the times when I had to put the book down, I found I was still thinking about Aria, Ivy, Max, Mattias, Gabriele, Lilliana, and Claudia. I was constantly trying to piece everything together, trying to guess what was coming next.

I managed to work out the link between Aria and Ivy, as well as the link between Gabriele and Max too, but I did not quite have the reason that linked them to each other. I did not know for certain if I was right until later in the book, so there were still times when I questioned my own thoughts.

Black Canvas shows a whole new level of twisted darkness that is inside Laura’s mind! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and gaining an insight into that darkness. I hope that this is not a one-off, I would love to see more dark twisted stories from this incredibly talented author.

I do not think that my review of Black Canvas will ever do the book the justice it deserves without giving away too much of the story.

That said…

If you like psychological thrillers that are dark and twisted, then I honestly think that you will enjoy reading Black Canvas and becoming immersed in Aria’s disturbing world.

🖤 About The Author 🖤

My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.

I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.

After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.

I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.

I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.

On the run from her mobster stepfather, Ashlee Gabrielli knows to trust no one. When Ash stumbles through the gates of the Citadel looking for a place to hide, she has no idea the men here are shifters.

Tobias Santini is the leader of The Order of the Phoenix. The cadre’s superior has guided his men and protected their women since the first fated mate was found. With everyone else in relationships, Tobias remains alone, serving as guardian to them all.

When he discovers Ash hiding in the garden, everything changes. She’s the image of a woman he loved and lost a lifetime ago, and she’s in trouble. Taking her under his wing, Tobias vows to protect her—even from himself when attraction sparks between them.

Ash is inexplicably drawn to the silver fox superior. Eventually, he reveals their past life connection, but he’s still keeping secrets. She has one, too, possessing a dangerous gift that no one foresees. With forces unfolding their insidious plans and a final showdown brewing, the men of the Citadel will need every ally they have to survive the wrath of the vampire Etienne. Yet even that might not be enough this time.

Nia Farrell

Nia Farrell:

I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you’ve read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.

A lot of me goes into my books. I’ve done psychic readings at Irish festivals (like Grace in SOMETHING ELSE). I have cowritten music like Anna in SOMETHING MORE. Rachel’s story was the most challenging because of the themes involved. A dear friend struggles with post-rape PTSD and two of my nephews are autistic. SOMETHING MORE addresses some of the challenges they face.

EXCERPT:

Grandma was at it again.

“Sammy, get that one to bend over for me, would you, hon, so I can check out those tight buns of his in those jeans?” she murmured.

Sam bit her lip and swallowed down her reply. She’d had plenty of weird looks when people thought she was talking to herself. No one could see Grandma. They only heard her one-sided conversation which made things awkward.

“Oh, yeah, come to Grandma,” the old woman crooned, circling around behind the men and eyeing their tushes.

Please don’t get handsy, Grandma, she mentally warned and hoped she was listening in. Bum pinching was Ellie Mae Henderson’s afterlife obsession. Okay. Sam would admit they were both drop-dead gorgeous. The blond had a broody, bad boy vibe going and the other one’s smile was bright and friendly. His eyes twinkled and there was something about him that made her warm all over. She really needed to get laid. It had been months since her last hook up. Not since North Carolina. Her grandmother’s inability to keep her hands to herself had ended every relationship she’d ever been in. Her longest had lasted a month until he’d gotten spooked. Once Grandma got grabby, it was goodbye, boyfriend.

“Come on, girl! Don’t just stand there with your mouth hanging open. Charm these fine young men. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Play your cards right and you’ll have some dark and white meat in your bed tonight. If it makes you feel any better, I promise I won’t watch.”

Talk about killing the mood. Sam shook herself and focused on the men who’d come with Prince.

“I’m Sam,” she repeated. “And you are…?”

“Elijah Marley.” The handsome black man with the blinding smile had a Jamaican accent. He had his hands full holding the Irish wolfhound, who was straining to check out Gus.

She looked expectantly at the broody one, a tragic blond with a dark shroud clinging to his shoulders.

“Gael Fournier,” he clipped in a French accent, as unhappy to be here as Elijah was delighted.

She intuited that they were partners but they sure didn’t act like it. If they were in a committed relationship, it was on the rocks. She sensed a separation looming with a chance of a reunion. The future had yet to be determined. It would have to be both their choices to make things work. Otherwise they were doomed to fail.

Which was too bad. They really were a beautiful couple.

Sighing, she wished them well. Just her luck to attract two gay men. She seemed to have a knack for it.

“And this is Prince,” she hummed, dropping to her knees. Putting her hand beneath his muzzle, she looked him squarely in the eye. “They tell me that you’ve been chasing a cat. Want to tell me what that’s all about, hmm?”

In her mind’s eye, Sam saw a blanket that used to be the dog’s. Somehow the cat had gotten hold of it and hidden it.

“You need to help them find it,” Grandma told her. “Go on! Tell them what you saw! If anyone can handle your truth, it’s these boys. Trust me.”

Sam lifted her chin and met their gazes, shifting hers back and forth between the two of them.

“The cat—Gibbs?” she asked Prince, double-checking what she thought he said. “Prince says that Gibbs stole his blanket. He’s only been trying to get it back. The cat’s hiding it somewhere on the property. If you like, Gus and I can do a search-and-rescue…, help find it and restore peace in the household. I’m afraid Prince isn’t going to stop until he gets it back. He barely tolerated the cat before this. He seriously dislikes him now. Sneaky thief, he says. And my precious. Dear Lord. He says he likes Lord of the Rings on movie night. This is one seriously fine animal you have.”

Gael remained stonily silent, eyeing her with suspicion. He wouldn’t trust easily. There were scars on his soul that might never heal.

Elijah looked at her in wonder. “You are a conjure woman, yes?” he asked. “You see things. Hear things.”

Gael curled his lip and made a scoffing sound.

Sam refused to apologize for her gifts. “I don’t do spellwork,” she told them. “I don’t intentionally conjure things, but I do hear them. Spirits. Animals. Trees. My grandmother. She’s gone but she’s still very much with me. My gifts are what let Gus and I be such a successful search-and-rescue team. When the trail goes cold, I can point him in the right direction until he picks it up again. Look, I know this is as unconventional a class as what you could imagine, but I’m happy to give you a refund. I just want to help Prince find his blanket. And I’ll have a talk with Gibbs while I’m at it. Hopefully, he’ll see the error of his ways. With cats, it’s hard to say. Too many of them remember when they were worshiped as gods.”

“Yes!” Elijah agreed excitedly. “We would be honored with your presence and help in our home.”

Gael’s jaw tightened but he didn’t say a word. The look in his eyes, though, spoke volumes. He didn’t believe a word she was saying—or at least he refused to.

“Great!” Sam replied, brightly ignoring the cold blue eyes directed at her and Grandma’s satisfied smirk. “Let’s start the lesson and then we can work out when I can come over.”

Prince turned out to be a good listener. Full of energy with a boisterous nature, he loved to play. Gus was a good influence on him. Well-trained and patient, her partner helped to show the younger dog what he was supposed to do. By the time the lesson was up, Prince and Elijah both were more confident with each other. Unlike Gael, who hung at the back of the room like a storm cloud. He hadn’t attempted to interact. Instead, he’d watched and silently judged.

“That one’s a project.” Grandma commented, eyeing the Frenchman. “He needs someone to take him in hand.”

Sam’s traitorous thoughts slid to a certain part of his anatomy she would love to take in hand. From the way he filled out his jeans, he wasn’t short or small in that department. Feeling her cheeks heat in a blush, she shook herself. Holy Batman, what was she thinking?
