*******This book is the second in the series and includes a cliffhanger ending******

"I’m getting married to him. I’m marrying the man I despise, the man that as much as I try not to be, I’m drawn to; lost in his power over me, lost in this indescribable feeling, that is between us. Now I’ll have to be with him, in his home, in his world as his wife."

Addie has dived into the world of Daimon Evans, becoming his wife in every aspect, safe one. Can Addie fight the bond they are now creating? Or will Addie give into the devil she calls Daimon?

No,” I said feeling more of his warm cum seeping out of me. I moved away from him to get to the bathroom, but he seized my hand and pulled me back. He then placed his hands on either side of my face and made me look at him.
I’m a greedy man Addie. Once I have what I want, I want more of it and you are what I want. My need for you is a lot greater than you know.” His deep voice reverberated inside me, as I stood there thoroughly fucked by Daimon. I tried to move my face but he held on.
Haven’t you realized it yet? You don’t hesitate anymore. You want my touch. You want this. So why can’t you just let it happen?” he bit out.
Because I hate you,” I snapped. “I hate how much you pull me into your world. I hate how much I seek it out now!” I cried out.
Is it that bad? Being pulled in by me? Why can’t you just let it happen? Why do you need to fight what’s between us?” he said roughly.
Because I can’t!” I fired back.
Why?” he demanded.
Because I’m scared. I’m scared of you, of me, of us,” I shouted.
Daimon finally released me from his hold. I pulled down my skirt and headed away to the bathroom. I closed the door, wanting to sever what was happening between us.

5+ Deal with the Devil Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I thought that I would somehow be sickened by him, but that was what worried me the most. I wasn't. Throughout high school, he'd bullied me, and it was clear he planned to do the same throughout this marriage. I should have been angry, but I wasn't.

Just when Addie though her deal with the devil couldn't get any worse, he backs her into a marriage. Now she will become Mrs. Evans for no less than three years , she will play the doting wife out in public and be everything Daimon needs her to be, do what he asks of her... save one. What Addie doesn't understand in the reactions her body is having to him, reactions she doesn't want to acknowledge but struggles with all the same. Theirs is business marriage, a contractual arrangement, and she needs to remember that before she makes the mistake of getting her heart involved. But living with Daimon is far from easy, and the more she gets to know him, the more she realizes he fights off some pretty heavy demons every day, it's almost enough to make her want to help him, be there for him, but then Daimon is still Daimon he every time she starts to soften towards him his true colors come shining through. Lost in a world she is completely unaccustomed to, surrounded by vultures ready to pick her off at a moments notice, and living with the devil himself, may just be too much for even Addie's fighting spirit.

This was a deal, a business deal, which we both needed. He needed a fake wife and I needed money. I hated him and how he treated me and he hated how I acted with him. So all I had to do was focus on how much of an asshole he was and I should be fine. But my body, my stupid body, craved his every touch. He was a jerk who knew exactly how to play me. He knew buttons that existed in me that I didn't even know about.

These two are going to drive me INSANE!! I have never met a more dysfunctional couple and I doubt I will again. Heed the authors warning, she knows of which she speaks. Still.... I am completely addicted to this story. These two incredibly broken people really do deserve a break, a sliver of happiness, but most of all-some peace. As much as Daimon has pissed me off in the past, and continued to do so here, he clearly is harboring some pretty long held, pretty intense, feelings for Addie ~ doesn't change the fact that he can usually take asshole to a whole new level. I really don't understand his reactions, decisions, and actions most of the time and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we have never been in his head; both books so far have been told strictly from Addie's POV. And Addie, that poor soul has been put through so much in life it's a wonder she has any fight left. She does however continue to frustrate me from time to time. I am just so emotionally exhausted already and we still have one more book to go. We are once again left hanging on the edge of a cliff wondering just what the hell could happen next, I can totally see myself doing some FB stalking in the future for any teasers, or any clues at all as to what I can expect next. I will absolutely be climbing the walls waiting for the final installment of this fabulous, if not slightly disturbing, series and I will forever love Evangelene for the hell she has put me through ;)

Daimon to me was the only one in this world who pushed me beyond anything that I was. He drew out my true self and it scared me. Daimon knew me in ways no one else did or probably ever would. Every day I spent with him, was a day closer to me falling into a black abyss that was Daimon. I didn't want him, but I did. God, I did.

Release Day Blitz ~ Lucky One by Christine Mack

TITLE: Lucky One
AUTHOR: Christie Mack
RELEASE DATE: November 26th 2014


Logan Westervelt wore his heart on his sleeve until the day his wife and love of his life ran away in search of chasing her dreams in Hollywood, leaving him to care for and raise their two-year-old daughter Cassidy alone.
Now it’s two years later and the once-happily-married man is a single father who shies away from romance at the risk of his heart breaking all over again. To concerned family, he insists he's fine playing daddy without the fun of dating. Besides, he's been a little preoccupied with his daughter, who hasn't said a word since her mother left.
That is until aspiring country singer Ivy Jade Mackay arrives in town after her car breaks down, leaving her stranded and unable to continue on her journey to Nashville until the problem is fixed.
Ivy Jade has big plans for her future, and sticking around in Forest Grove, Alabama, isn’t one of them. But with little money to her name, she resorts to getting a job in town until she can afford to get back on the road with a reliable car.
Outside forces push them together with an undeniable attraction which neither Logan nor Ivy care to admit to. But when past lovers and career aspirations become a thing of the present, will the spark between them be enough to give Logan and his young daughter a second chance at love and Ivy a reason to stay? Will they be the lucky one for each other?

When I'm not reading the endless supply of books added daily to my iPad, I can be found tucked away with my laptop in front of me as I write about the many characters beg-ging me to tell their story, one book boyfriend at a time.

~Research Session~

She was not sure where she got her nerve from, but Megan suddenly felt a surge of power flow through her as she pressed herself against David. Taller than her, oh who was she kidding, he dwarfed her by nearly a foot, but he didn't scare her at all. His height was sexy, and so was the rest of him, and she was sick of not having her taste of him. So many months she had been waiting and wanting and now was her chance.
"Well? Now I'm touching you. Don't tell me that's all you wanted from me," she tested.
A wicked grin spread across his face making her stomach flutter and her mouth instantly go dry. "Oh no, that is definitely not all," he growled as he got closer to her face. "There is plenty that I want from you," he finished and with one movement pulled her face to his in a viciously searing kiss. He kept his hands on each side of her face with his fingers slightly wrapped behind her skull. In place and with no chance of escape, the kiss burned on in slow, torturously glorious minutes.
When he released his hold on her, she swayed and nearly threatened collapse. He chuckled, snagged her wrist, and pulled her back to his chest. Threading one arm around her waist, he held her in place and asked, "Are you okay?"
"Yes, I'm great!" she said enthusiastically and then blinked her surprise at her admission immediately and stammered her next sentence. "Well, I... yes of course. I'm fine, maybe I didn't have a proper lunch today or something and feeling a little lightheaded," she grasped at straws.
"Or maybe," he offered in rebuttal as he leaned closer to her ear than she thought she could handle, "you want me, and your body is so interested in that thought that it makes you feel that way? I like it. I want you, too. All you needed to do was say something."
She peeked up at him with doll eyes and an angel face and simply said, "Something."

4 Short Yet Oh-so-Dirty Stars ✩
~spoiler FREE review~

Sex is important in a relationship, and if you aren't feeling it and they don't wanna try to please you, then something's got to give.

I am usually drawn to longer books but there is something to be said about a collection of short stories. You can either sit and read the whole thing through or it can come in handy if your just looking for a quick romp ~ pop the book open pick a story and indulge your dirty side. Either way, this was a nice collection. Eleven unique stories, all with different characters and different kinks; from scorned lovers looking for a little healing, what really goes on in the dark corners of a library, a husband and wife just looking to reconnect, and all the way to picking up a guy in Home Depot- this collection dives into them all. Hott and sexy with out going to overboard; not that I would have minded that, I like my kink a little on the raunchy side. Some of them got a little dirtier than other, while some were actually kinda sweet... well, as sweet as sex gets ;)
There was pretty much something for everyone and a fab way to pass the time if you looking for something light and not so heavy on the angst.

She collapsed on his chest, panting, and trembling and then rolled off of him onto the cold ground. Their hair was littered with leaves and snowflakes, knees dirty, cheeks flushed, and smiles that could make anyone jealous. Complete bliss.

 CL is eclectic, geeky, positive, nature-loving and completely non-"normal" (just the way she likes to be). She has been a fan of literature since she was a small child and finally decided to take her dreams (both waking and sleeping!) and do something positive with them.

CL has lived all over the world and has a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, minoring in Psychology and Forensics. Which means you don't want to cross her because she knows how and where to hide a body so it's never found! She proudly admits to hearing voices in her head, but at times, her characters' impromptu visits can be rude and annoying. Thankfully, she has adequate patience for their shenanigans and can out ninja them any day of the week.

CL's voice is boisterous, sassy, and not finished yet! Stay tuned!

Release Day Blitz, Double Review & Giveaway ~ Compulsive Fascination (Compulsions #2) by N. Isabelle Blanco

Compulsive Fascination (Compulsions #2)
by N. Isabelle Blanco

He owns her—Every. Single. Breath. She just doesn't want to admit it. To him, or herself. . .

You get hurt once; you assume that’s the norm. You see others suffer; you assume that’s the norm, too.

At least, that’s what Livana once did. One rough go-around was enough for her. After that, she kept it simple, no strings attached. It was just easier that way. Even necessary.

Until she went out one night and met Calum Alexander, a man whose intensity broke through each of her defenses, leaving her vulnerable.

Afraid to fall in love, she tries to keep some of her walls up around herself, even though Calum is determined not to let her.

Faced with a man that seems intent on possessing her, Liv knows it’s a mere matter of time before she no longer has a choice.

That is. . .until Calum's own insecurities come to the fore, throwing their new, fragile relationship into a tailspin.

Will the feelings between them be strong enough to keep them together, or will their issues get in the way of what they had just started to build?

It occurred to me that we never really had angry sex before.
It was about to happen.
Right now.
Leaning down, he slanted his mouth over mine. I took it, opening my mouth for the aggressive thrust of his tongue. Our tongues tangled, breaths mingling. He kissed me with slow, hard laps, making his message clear.
He owned my body.
He knew it.
Did he think that gave him the right to hug his ex in front of me and that I’d have no say about it?
Hurt, I bit down on his lip.
Not breaking our kiss, he groaned and sucked on my tongue. His fingers tightened around my nipples. That hint of pain again.
Each sting merged with the sensations his tongue evoked, until I was drugged. Couldn’t think about anything but him coming inside me.
Letting go of his wrists, I fisted his lapels. “God, just fuck me already. Please.” My tone was incoherent. Needy.
He wrenched my head back with a fist in my hair, attacking my neck with his tongue and teeth. “You want me to fuck you?” He gave me a harsh bite that made me yelp.
It wasn’t lost on what his words truly meant. “Yes. You.” Gasping for breath, I pressed as close to him as possible. “Always you.”
He didn’t deserve that, but I had no choice but to give it to him.
A guttural sound left him. His hands came down on my ass, lifting me up against him. “I’ll give it to you. Every single, God damned thing.”
Christ, please tell me that meant what I thought it meant.
Bending at the knee, he scooped me up into his arms.
I'd become so lightheaded with want that it took me a few seconds to find my voice. When I finally did, it sounded raspier than I’d ever heard it. “Where are we going?”
The look in his eyes somehow turned hungrier.
I couldn’t focus on the beautiful garden around us, or what direction he stormed in.
It was all about him. That austere expression, the hardened brow. His golden eyes fixated ahead and burning with that violent energy.
Oh, God. I loved him. I truly did. So fucking much, and suddenly, I couldn’t breathe through the emotion—could barely contain the words inside me.
Calum raced up another short flight of steps and lowered me down to my unsteady feet. He reached into his coat pocket for that passkey again and stepped up to me.
His free hand met my pussy through my dress, palming it, the action possessive. “We’re going somewhere private. You’re mine. No one sees you come but me.”

5- Obsessive, Possessive, and downright Crazy -Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I, Livana Payne, male-heartbreaker-extraordinaire (according to my best friends), had been breaking every damn rule in my book. I, the wham-bam-thank-you Madame … had been seeing someone.
Every one of my survival instincts screeched at that but it was true.
Calum Alexander came into my life like a whirlwind of pure sex.

Livana Payne has been burned in the past, badly enough that is has caused her to avoid any kind of emotion entanglement-sex is all she is after... at least that was the case before Calum Alexander came storming into her life. He pulls her to him like she has never experienced before, of course it doesn't hurt that the sex is off-the-charts hott, but it's more than that; he is a genuinely good guy, and that is something she never thought she would ever believe. Try as she might to fight it, she is falling for him hard and fast-she just can't let him know that. Her insecurities and doubts, jealousy and fear, threaten to ruin everything; but Calum won't let her go without a fight. Until this seemingly perfect man lets his own insecurities and jealousy take over, and in turn making a mistake that could cost him everything if he lets it.

You're fucking dating Calum Alexander!”
Eh... dating might be too strong a word.”
“You made him you fuck buddy, didn't you whore?”
That was the plan, but the lines got blurred.”
He fell in love with you!”
I hate you and everything about you, you lucky bitch!”
“Will you calm the fuck down? We aren't together as of right now.”
“I thought you weren't together to begin with. So which is it, Livana?”
“Blurred lines, remember?”

This book had me a mixed up bag of emotions right from the start. The ever-present, overpowering lust that we experienced in the first book is most definitely still there, but it gets compounded with frustration and anxiety over the actions of these two. Jealousy is a giant ugly green monster that haunts every step that they take causing them to have some pretty stupid and not at all thought out reactions. Liv becomes the master at the 'run don't ask' game and Calum is... well, he's a dude ~ 'nuff said. I wanted to smack them and hug them and lock them in a room together til they pulled they're heads outta their asses. Luckily for us, Liv's gay best friend Mikael provided some much needed gut-clenching laughs along the way. The banter between those two was epic. And the sex was just as crazed as the first time, mu hubs thanks the author for that. But after all the hott-mess were put through, we are still left hanging off a cliff with the freakin ending. I am dying here. This series has very quickly become an obsession for me and I CANNOT WAIT to see what is in store next for these two nut-jobs.

I need to claim you and you need to claim me.”
Those words almost sent an orgasm through me, my sex fluttering and pulsing in response to them. I had to acknowledge the truth in his statement; something was happening to us. Something strictly biological and territorial.

Addictive Lunacy (Compulsions #1)
by N. Isabelle Blanco

Calum Alexander lived his life one way. With purpose and moderation. Everything was set in place and everything happened according to a plan.
That is, until his picture perfect engagement falls apart and his crazy brother Lucas gets him to agree to a night out. Calum is left to fend for himself when Lucas decides to bail, and "fend for himself" he will need to.
A vivacious and obviously young Livana Payne catches his attention and before he knows what's going on, they end up talking. By the end of the night, Calum is on fire for the impish girl who's managed to ignite an inferno within him.
Yes, she’s twelve years younger and the complete opposite of what he’d imagined in his life, but he hungers for her in a way that’s frightening. Drunk and surprisingly out of control, he's dead set on his need to have her.
But the moment he accidentally lets it be known that he's recently single, Livana is having none of it. There is no way she's getting involved with a man who just broke up with his fiance.
No, they were going to have to wait. Calum’s need for her somehow kept growing. As the days went by and he got to know her more, Livana seemed to be stealing all of his sanity.
As much as she wants to wait it quickly becomes obvious to Calum that he’s losing his grip to the monster she’d awakened within him.
He’s about to lose control and when he does, he knows there’s going to be nothing gentle about what he’ll end up doing to her . . .

5- Crazy Hott Insanity -Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I couldn't give into what my body wanted from her. I'd have to tell her the truth before I did and once I did, I'd look like the biggest asshole in the world.
Which, I was starting to believe I was. Why the hell was I in a bar, lusting like a maniac after a woman when just yesterday morning I'd been engaged and ready to marry another?

When Calum Alexander took his brother Luke up on his offer of a night out, he did so reluctantly but considering he was just dumped by his fiancé not twenty-four hours ago, he figured he could do with a night out. When his brother then stands him up, he is pissed... until he sees her. Never could he have imagined that the blond beauty would set his life on a course he never expected. Livana Payne is not only twelve years younger than him, but she sets him on fire in a way he has never experienced. A night of chatting and drinking turns heated, until Liv finds out about his very recent break-up and puts a halt on their passion. She likes Calum, she really does, but she doesn't want to be rebound chick. He needs time to deal with the loss of his engagement before they can ever consider any kind of involvement. They stay in touch, she gives him time, but neither could have predicted just how hard that would be. And neither could have been prepared for the beast Liv just unleashed in Calum. Can she handle the intensity? Can he?

Oh, fuck no.
Are you fucking serious right now? An erection? Really?
Not that I was a stranger to them, but this one hit me hard and out of nowhere. I actually took a step back, panting with shock and sheer hunger.

This was a relatively short read, and I think it's meant to be more of a glimpse into when these two met and how they began. I LOVED IT!! The transformation that takes place in Calum was fricken awesome-dude goes from a proper, somewhat shy guy who was in an engagement of convenience to a Liv craving, sexed-up horny-as-hell monster who has no idea what to do with all his pent-up lust. It was as hott as it was hilarious. You could tell he has never experienced this kind of a reaction to a woman before and it confused the hell outta him, and as crazy as it drove him he wanted to respect her wishes and give it some time first. We don't really get too clear of a picture of Liv, all of our time is spent in Calum's head, but from what I've seen I could really get to like her. And I have to say, when these two finally come together (pun totally intended), well-you might need a cold shower, or a willing partner, to work off the hott-mess it will leave you in. I never get calls like that. After the build up leading to the explosion, I was not disappointed. I am very much looking forward to seeing where we go from here with these two, should be intense, and hott-as-hell. N. Isabelle Blanco writes her steam just the way I like it; dirty, rough, and full of passion. She has definitely crash landed herself onto my One-Click-Addiction List with these two and I am drooling for more.

Baby, I need you,”
I admitted, begging her in the simplest way I could. I was in hell. Only she could save me. Release me from this prison that she'd cruelly thrown me into.
You'll never be free. Never. She feels too good.

 N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.

An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.

N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.
