Hold Me Until Forever
Hold Me Until Forever
by Christina Phillips

Ella Clark has been in love with Alex Grayson forever. She’s tired of being invisible—or worse, being treated like his kid sister. If she can just get him to drop his iron-fisted control for two seconds, she’ll prove she knows exactly how to blow his mind.

Alex has been fighting his attraction to Ella since her should-have-been-innocent sweet sixteen kiss burned down his world. He’s damaged, and there’s no way he’ll ever drag her into his screwed up life. Until she offers him something he’s always craved—steamy, no-strings sex inside his exclusive BDSM club. Where she’ll be safe from the darkness that haunts him.

Except there’s nothing safe about being with Ella, and the more she gives, the harder it is to let her go. If he stays, he risks everything, but how can he walk away from the only woman he’s ever needed?

TellMeYouWantMe_500
Tell Me You Want Me
by Joya Ryan

Determined to find her inner badass and save her business, boutique owner Michelle Ruby signs up for a twenty-four hour survival class. Except, she’s the only person who registered, and the guide is a sex-on-a-stick G.I. Joe come to life. Between his massive muscles, smoldering blue eyes, and “there’s no crying in camping” attitude, she’s in trouble…in more ways than one.

Search and rescue squad member Dex Young never thought he’d be roped into teaching “survival skills” to pageant queens. His sole student is upper class, upper state, and sexy as hell. And he has a sneaking suspicion that beneath her tight updo and designer jeans, there’s a sex kitten waiting to claw her way out.

But Dex knows women like her. Knows they only bring guys like him home to piss off their daddies. If it’s the bad boy experience she wants, she’ll get it. And Dex? Well, he can’t wait to find out just how dirty Michelle’s willing to get…

Review

5-stars

When I was approached to read and review a new Megan Erickson title for Entangled I jumped at the chance. I didn’t even give a chance for my series-OCD to rear its ugly head–I wanted this book! Thank you Entangled, for allowing me the chance to read it, because it was everything I’ve come to expect from Megan Erickson and then some.

On the surface Chad Lake seems like a carefree young man happy to drift from job to job without any expectations of a set career or romantic relationship. In truth, he’s much more than that. Sure, he enjoyed his younger years but lately he has come to yearn for more and although he has set his goals he’s still not sure he can make them happen. Meeting Owen Hawkins at his sister’s party and thinking about him after their short interlude it’s not something Chad has time for, but he can’t seem to help himself regardless.

Owen Hawkins is content with his life–a promising career doing something he loves and a close friend in his boss. Meeting his friend’s brother and being enthralled by him it’s not something Owen ever thought possible, nor is it the side of him that only Chad seems to bring to the surface. Owen is cautious, reserved and set in his ways but there’s something about the other man that sets him free.

In the last year, I’ve come to enjoy Megan Erickson’s writing, especially her characters. I love that her characters feel real–they are flawed, with some insecurities and real-life yearnings any reader can relate to. Chad and Owen were no different.

While Chad appeared to be confident and cocky, he had moments of insecurities and doubts in regards to his talents. And although he hadn’t been one for relationships, once he discovered raw passion for another man he allowed himself the chance to explore it even when it cost him emotionally. Owen was a nerdy type content with his life and set in his ways–like one gets when accustomed to living alone. He was not prepared for Chad and his struggle to come to terms with his attraction to the other man was like the kind any other person would go through when confronted with the chance to change a part of one’s life you’re already settled in.

Of course, it helped that they had great chemistry. It was that chemistry that led the way to a deeper connection. Even through their bickering, sarcastic remarks and overall clash of opinions the author made sure to point out the other ways that they connected. Sure, it was a physical connection in the beginning, but in time emotions came into play which made the whole journey all that more worthwhile.

Keep in mind that although this is the third book in the Gamers series it can be read as a stand alone.

All in all, a fantastic opposites attract story that left me wanting more and cemented Megan Erickson’s place on my list of favorite authors.

*I received a copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.

Colin Hartman can now add college to his list of failures. On the coast-to-coast trek home from California, Colin stops at a gas station in the Nevada desert, and can’t help noticing the guy in tight jeans looking like he just stepped off a catwalk. When he realizes Catwalk is stranded, Colin offers a ride.

Riley only intended to take a short ride in Colin’s Jeep to the Grand Canyon. But one detour leads to another until they finally find themselves tumbling into bed together. However there are shadows in Riley’s eyes that hide a troubled past. And when those shadows threaten to bury the man whom Colin has fallen in love with, he vows to get Riley the help he needs. For once in his life, quitting isn’t an option…

Review

This book…just…damn!

Since I loved Trust the Focus so much, I jumped at the chance to read this one. I admit, I didn’t paid much attention to the blurb and just dove in.

I loved Colin with his southern charm and caring heart. He saw Riley and he was immediately drawn to him. Not only because of his tight jeans but because he could see the sadness behind his eyes. He took a chance in offering Riley a ride and although he bit more than he bargained for, he stuck it out. Earning more of my admiration because of it.

Then there was Riley. If ever there was a character that truly got to me it was him. I just wanted to take him away from his pain and just shelter the hell out of him. He was guarded and carried a wealth of pain within himself. But he was sweet and adorable and I wanted nothing more than for him to be happy.

Unlike Trust the Focus this story wan’t an easy read to get through. It had many tough moments and dealt with some heavy topics that I had not seen before in the genre. And that’s another reason why I loved this story so much. It was as poignant and emotionally draining as it was satisfying.

There was the romance which was slow-building and sweet yet intense. Then there was the chemistry between Riley and Colin which was off the charts HOT. Add to that the range in emotions the author brought to the page and you got yourself a winner.

*sigh* I couldn’t have asked for a better story. The feels, the characters, the whole concept–everything worked together to make the reader invest themselves in these characters’ lives. I can’t wait to read more from this author!
