Her Guilty Secret by Clare Connelly

Reviewed by Helen

This is a powerfully emotional story, black and white, good and bad, opposites meet and forbidden love evolves in a classroom, one that had me turning the pages as Connor and Olivia have a secret affair that is so very, very erotic, hot and steamy but so moving and emotional, wow.

Olivia Amorelli is studying law at a top school in London she is determined to fight for the good justice to beat the criminals and do what has to be done to be the best prosecutor, but her professor Connor Hughes is making her want to be a bad girl and not the good girl she is, man he is gorgeous and she can’t help herself when she is near him.

Top Irish defence lawyer Connor Hughes, has come to London to be a professor at a top law school in London, he has demons that he is trying to get over, he is a hard teacher but a good one, but the pull he has to one of his students is over the top, and totally forbidden for a professor and student to have an affair.

I am not sure how to explain how good and emotional this one was, what starts off as a sensual pull, a desire for sex and hot sex becomes an affair of the heart, where Olivia gets to Connor’ heart and mind, makes him see and think, they do have such a forbidden affair, one that will curl the pages of the book, I loved it from start to finish, MS Connelly you rock this one is awesome, love shines from lust and I highly recommend it.

Reviewed by Helen

Jackie Ashenden is one of my favourite authors, her heroes are so dam tough and hard but always underneath is that loving caring hero and her heroines are strong and vulnerable and this book has both, I am really enjoying this series and getting to know Xander and Poppy was very enjoyable, and steamy hot, the pages could become a light, you will need a fan to keep you cool.

Xander King is determined to right a wrong that he is convinced he caused years ago and to do that she needs a good PA to work with and no one will work with the King family, so he insists on hiring is step-sister Poppy, the girl he really hates but there is no other option. This could mean a very rocky time for Xander.

Poppy is furious when Xander demands that she work for him, but in the end she has no choice, working for the man that she has never liked since her mother married his father when she was ten years old, their relationship has always been a feisty one, but now there is a pull that she cannot ignore.

This story is very erotic, steamy and with a controlling Xander pushing Poppy although not without her enjoying what is happening between them, they have a lot from their pasts that needs to be sorted both feel responsible for a death, both have had terrible childhoods and both have felt alone most of their lives, but when their sensual desire for each other explodes this causes their emotions to open up and heal, they say that there is a very thin line between love and hate, this is one that I highly recommend.

Hooley-Dooley talk about sensual sizzle, this one is hot and fabulous, MS Stewart rocks with her debut Dare book, I loved Marcus and Jennifer these two were meant to be together, the attraction was instant and the heat could have started a fire, this is one that you will not want to put down so make sure you have nothing else to do while you get comfortable and enjoy this story.

Jennifer Hayes works very hard, she needs to make sure that her mother and sister are well cared for, but when her business partner stands her up for a meeting, she spies the most gorgeous man she has ever seen and her body heats up and she knows that she must have one night with him, that should ease her body, but that one-night turns her world upside down when she finds out the Mr Wright is now her new business partner.

Marcus Wright is a very wealthy businessman, he is about to take over half a business and is due to meet both partners but looks like he has been stood up, oh but h does notice the gorgeous red-head at the bar, and cannot believe the sensual pull that he feels for her and when she buys him a drink, it looks like he is in for a very good night. Things turn around a little when Marcus finds out who the lady is.

Working together, running a successful company is hard enough but add in a very sensual affair and that should be a big no from both of them, especially when Marcus has no intention of their relationship being anything more that for sex, and Jennifer needs more. Both of them have issues with their family, but truly they were both fighting so hard not to fall in love, that when it hits them and they give in to love, the stars shine brightly for them, what a story I loved this one and I do highly recommend it, thank you MS Stewart.

This is the story of two people who had grown up together, neighbours and best friends until one betrayed the other and both went in separate ways both lead very different lives, and now maybe fate has bought them back together, this story is really well written and takes in some controversial subjects, that effect people in life today and MS Dahlia has done it well.

Esther Woodhall grew up in what most people would see as a normal church going family, but if people looked closer they would see that the church in their family rules and Esther was not always happy, but she had her best friend and neighbour Jordon, they spent a lot of time together talking about life in general, Jordon and his family belonged to the church as well but yes Jordon was male. Just before Esther turned fourteen her life changed dramatically and at the age of sixteen she did something that was desperate and in the end left her alone and pregnant, eight years later she runs into her friend Jordon.

Jordon Stojanov felt so deceived and betrayed when Esther encouraged him into her bed and then wouldn’t have anything to do with him, and with his family falling apart, at eighteen he did what he thought was right and took off to Hong Kong to study engineering and he has done well he now owns his own company but he has never forgotten his best friend Esther, and to say he is stunned when eight years later he ends up naked in a hotel lobby and Esther is there.

I really enjoyed this story but is it hot and steamy and there is BDSM in this one, Ester and Jordon have a very explicit sexual and emotional journey to a beautiful HEA, but this story deals with the emotions that these two have gone through in the past and opens them up in the now, Esther and her daughter Ashia have struggled with Ashia’s deafness and trying to make ends meet, Jordon has done well and lives well but he also has things that he needs to come to terms with, but to win Esther over he has to work hard she is a very strong and independent woman now who knows what she wants for herself and her daughter. This is a story that had me turning the pages, and I look forward to more in this series.

This book is hot, hot and more hot and it is a fabulous story a beautiful romance, I loved it from start to finish, I was reading it while waiting in a very hot car for my granddaughter to get out of school and the temperature just kept going up and up, I do highly recommend this book if you like your stories spicy.

Owen has had a crush on his best friend’s older sister Stefanie since he was fifteen, and now he is coming to work at the hospital that she works at and staying at her place for three weeks, can he convince Stefanie in these three weeks that they should be together, the chemistry between them is electrical.

Stefanie is over doctors having been hurt badly by her last boyfriend so when Owen arrives and the nursing staff are going off tap about the new doctor she has no intention of getting any closer than flat mate for a few weeks, but keeping control of her desires for Owen is getting harder and harder and when she gives in wow, but it is still hard to overcome the ten year age difference.

Amy Andrews is a fabulous writer and story teller, this one is so good, yes it is smutty and erotic but the emotions and feelings are so easy to feel, I loved Owen and Stefanie and their steamy journey to a beautiful HEA left me sighing, be warned it is sensual and steamy I would suggest you keep a fan and some ice-water close, but if erotic is your thing then this book is a must read.

Hard Night by Jackie Ashenden

WOW another powerful, emotional and action packed story from MS Ashenden, she never disappointments me her characters are so very strong and have so much going on and she brings it all out in a story that is very hard to put down, this time we get the boss of 11th Hour Jacob Knight’s story and has this man got some baggage and the person that will get him to open up is Faith, but not before Jacob makes Faith dig deep as well, hang on for a fabulous ride.

Faith has been with 11th Hour for six months and only Jacob knows that she is suffering from amnesia, she has no memory of who she is or what has gone on in her life before, but Jacob needs that information to find his missing brother, a lot has happened since they were separated and no one knows the truth, but considering the feelings he is harbouring for Faith then maybe opening up to her will also help her get her memory back.

When her memory does return it hits Faith like a brick wall and she needs to get away from Jacob, she has many secrets that she keeps and even though Jacob has opened up to her opening up to him maybe bad idea or a good one, their relationship is growing in many different ways, but she is determined to get to the truth about a friend. And just maybe he is her prince for a princess after all.

This is a really fast paced story the heat that arcs between Jacob and Faith could light up a town, but the danger keep them going, the need for both of them to protect each other gets stronger and when Jacob’s brother arrives on the scene emotions fly, I did love this story and this series, MS Ashenden you rock with your stories woohoo, thank you.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
