MS Ashenden has done it again written a story that will engage the reader and have them turning the pages with her powerful emotional words that bring out the inner feelings of the hero and heroine, and both of these two Lucas Tate and Grace Riley have vulnerabilities but show strength their passions ignite as they journey a dangerous path to a HEA that will have you sighing.

Grace is a creative artist who has been put down throughout her life by someone who should have shown encouragement and love and this leaves her vulnerable, she has lost her SEAL husband, killed in the line of duty and is concentrating on her painting. So when Lucas Tate her husband’s friend walks into her life and tells her that her life is in danger, well it upends her life completely and she can no longer deny the spark that shoots between them.

Lucas never shows emotion that was pushed out of him as a young boy he is controlled and in control always so when he is given the task by his deceased father to protect Grace Riley he gets on with the job never realizing what this will do to his inner self his feeling are upended totally as he does what he can to keep Grace safe and tries to keep his feelings intact.

WOW the vulnerable quiet artist Grace is about to melt the ice and snow that is Lucas Tate and in a very sensual steamy and thoroughly enjoyable way. I loved these two what a couple they make they are just so good for each other, I loved seeing them open up to each other and fall in love. Thank you MS Ashenden for another fabulous story bring on Wolf’s story now woohoo. I do highly recommend this one it will have your heart pumping.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

Guiltless ~ A Cheshire Love Story by Mollie Blake

Reviewed by Nas Dean

Guiltless: ACheshire Love Story by author Molly Blake is an August 2017 release by Black Opal Books.

This story is fast-paced and flows well. It will hook you in as a reader and keep you turning pages till late at night to find out what happens next.

It does contain some steamy explicit scenes and sex between multiple partners at once. But these steamy scenes are an integral part of the story as it depicts ‘Guiltless’ loving.

Recommended for readers who love spicy and steamy reads. 


"Guiltless: A Cheshire Love Story" by Molly Blake is my first read from this author. WOW! It is very erotic. If you enjoy reading explicit sex scenes, menage a trois, maybe some S&M you will really like this book. Byron shows Lauren the way of his world and 'guiltless' loving. If you're not into the erotic reads keep an open mind and read the book. It's racy, but there is a good story to it too.

This is a story with a lot happening in it, in and out of the bedroom yes it is steamy and erotic and I would suggest keeping a fan close by while reading but it will keep you turning the pages.

Lauren Chandler is a strong business woman who runs a lingerie company and has just broken up with her boyfriend and she is feeling a little lost she needs something more something to bring some excitement back into her life and maybe modelling her garments for a photographer might be just the thing. So the search begins for a photographer and maybe she has found him in Byron Lord because their first meeting sends the sparks flying.

Byron is a gifted photographer and he has somethings in his past that he keeps to himself but he also has something on the agenda and working for Lauren Chandler may just what he needs to keep his company going and add some spice to his already sizzling life.

Lauren and Byron have a lot of hurdles to cross before they get to their HEA be warned there are steamy explicit sex scenes in this story but the action not only in the bedroom but out of it will keep you wanting to know what is happening and getting to know the characters that all add to this story.

4/5 stars

I am not a big reader of ménage stories but I had heard a lot about this book and wanted to read it and I must say I wasn’t over keen on the heroine at the start, but then she really grew on me yes her tastes are a lot different from the heroines that I normally read and as for the two heroes Charlie and Lyle they know how to show love I think they are wonderful heroes. This story isn’t for everyone but I did really enjoy it and am very glad I read it.

Heroine and sports reporter Hannah Maynard knows what she wants in life she enjoys her sex life with various partners and one of those partners is Rugby League star and captain for the Glebe Gannets and Australian team Charlie Maxxin they already have a friends with benefits friendship and now that Hannah has learnt a secret she wants in her fantasies are running wild and she is prepared to make big changes in her life for this but she doesn’t do relationships as such it is for one thing only.

Charlie has a private life as well as the one that the world sees and it is really important that it stays private he could never ruin his career or that of fellow team player Lyle Smythe-Jones, so when Hannah drops the bombshell at dinner he is intrigued but also knows that Lyle must also make the decision and they tend towards relationships.

WOW this story is a moving one there are a lot of choices that need to be made secrets to be kept and appearances to be kept up and having Hannah join them will help in some ways but what was so good is the love that grew between these three people, it was fabulous seeing Hannah fall for the guys they already loved each other although it took Charlie a while to admit it and then bring family into the mix and state representative games there is a lot going on a lot of pressure. It is a very descriptive story with a lot of heat and sex but in such a loving way and for me I did really enjoy this one, thank you MS Ellink.

4/5 stars for a very good story

The Billionaire's Intern by Jackie Ashenden

MS Ashenden knows how to write an Alpha-Hole hero so well and then she finds the best heroine to bring him down and lights that spark up between them so as the pages start to scorch and this is just such a book steamy and emotional a story that will have the reader engaged and turning those pages.

Lorenzo de Santis is tough and ambitious he works in the family security business and there is no love lost between his father and him and he is after his father in a big way, so when he is pushed to take on an intern and it happens to be the daughter of a close family friend someone that he has known since she was very young he is dubious to say the least but gives in and then finds out that it will suit him after all. But he does not expect to feel the way he does about Kira the emotions and reactions he has to her will light the city in a very erotic way.

Kira Constantin has been to hell and is not quite back yet she is an only child and has done her very best to please her parents and everyone in her lifetime but has always had problems concentrating and learning, but there was one person when she was young who helped her he taught her to keep her hands busy making paper cranes and now that man is back in her life as her boss but there is conflict when she is asked to spy for her father when she starts her internship. But it is hard to go against the feelings she has for Lorenzo they started a long time ago and boy he is hard to ignore when he sets her body on fire.

This is a story where two people have a lot to overcome to find that love that send them to heaven and back their journey helps them both get over feelings of not being good enough and opens up a whole new world of steamy sex and yes even talking to each other opening up just being together holding hands. This is another fabulous story in this series and I do look forward to the next one woohoo MS Ashenden another one for the keeper shelf.

Bratva Jewels #1

Sapphire by J.A. Low

Reviewed by Helen

I am not a ménage reader normally and neither have I read m/m stories but I do love a good romantic suspense and I had heard a lot about this book and really wanted to give it a go and I am glad I did, I enjoyed it very much it is hot, hot and more hot, sexy and steamy and it had me turning the pages to see what happens with Tomas and Mateo after they find the badly battered woman on their doorstep.

Zoe has had her life turned upside down after meeting a very gorgeous Russian in a bar one night, kidnapped as a sex slave and becoming Sapphire one of the Batva Jewels and never does she think that she could end up in love with two of the most handsomest males on the planet actor and artist Mateo and billionaire businessman Tomas, but these two guys save her life and open up a whole new world to her in an extremely sensual and caring way.

Mateo and Tomas are lovers and very much in love but they keep their secret well for various reasons so when they find a young woman on their doorstep brutally beaten and close to death they do everything they can to help she cannot remember anything that has happened to her so they take her in and do what they can to help her regain her memory and the nature of love takes its course they never thought that a third partner would be just what they needed.

When her memory returns they realize how much danger there is with the Russian mafia after Zoe but not only is Zoe in danger but her sister Gracie and Tomas and Mateo. This is a fast paced story with a lot going on and I didn’t want to put the book down. I loved the strength and courage that Zoe shows and the love and caring that the boys show to her. I read out of my normal comfort zone and thoroughly enjoyed it and I do highly recommend this one if you enjoy erotic romance with a fabulous romantic suspense thrown in. The HEA is wonderful it will have you smiling but bring on the next book in the series.

The Edge of Temptation by Megan Crane

Review by TashNz 
Edge of Temptation
by Megan Crane

My first introduction to Megan Cranes Edge series which was kindly provided by Netgalley. 

Wowsers!  What a read!  Not for the faint hearted and very far removed from Caitlyn Crews world of writing.  I did see hints of Caitlyn Crews humor shine through. 

Maud escapes her Nunnery, the only thing shes known since she was a young pre teen – sold by her parents.  Meeting Warrior Gunnar in the desert, she takes her chance and begs him to take her with him, where she doesn’t care, as long as It is far away from the Nunnery.   Demonstrating her skill at “praying” Maud is sure she’s convinced Gunnar how she can come in handy on the trip, but Gunnar needs a sacrificial virgin to seek his revenge and to bring back his loved mate from the dead. 
Set in a world that I wasn’t too sure if it was the past, present or future I still found the story to flow and understood why Maud was looking for escape.  I thought she fell for Gunnar quite quickly and she was so submissive so quickly and I guess the desire to save her life changed to a decide to stay with Gunnar.  Gunnar was a warrior and his description was one of strength and determination but clearly he had a heart buried deep.  He had issues he need to fix and I enjoyed watching him struggle with what he wanted to do and stay on track. 

I would call The Edge of Temptation a  mix of R18 erotic, submissive and paranormal historical. Might sound a confusing mix but it helped me turn the pages to find out what was going to happen?  Was Maud going to end up a sacrificial gift, was Gunnar’s dead mate really a traitor?  Does Gunnar’s brother get his own story? Will love prevail? 

An intense love story with very graphic details that are not for the faint hearted. 

I am a huge believer in trying different genre’s and I am glad I did.

HUSBAND SIT by author Louise Cusack is a February 2016 release by Flirt Press.

In need of urgent money, she takes on the job of husband sitting for rich wives. To keep their husband’s at home while they go off on holidays.

This is a fun, sexy and steamy romp. It takes a reader on an alternate journey of what happens when plans go wrong and she falls in love with her first subject. The journey she takes to try and make him jealous is sexy as well as emotional.

Highly recommended for all readers of fun, sexy but emotional stories!
