Book Blurb

Sometimes, the thing you want belongs to someone else…

Jack – Once upon a time I had everything. The perfect family. The perfect life. In one horrible year, it went away. I can never have it back but I can hurt the man responsible for taking what was left. I know how to steal something even more important from him. He doesn’t see how she looks at me instead of him. I can make her burn for me, make her addicted to me before I send her back.

And it will be so easy.

Tora – I’ll cross any line to get to the truth, no matter who I have to hurt. I don’t have a choice. I’m not afraid to use sex to get what I want. I know you think that makes me a whore. But until you understand what’s at stake, you can’t know.

Don’t judge me until you do.

Sometimes, you have to take what you want no matter what it costs.

I was given this book for my honest review

Do you remember the Tom and Jerry cartoon when you were a child? How the cat was always trying to catch the mouse but the mouse was always out of reach? Tom would go off on his ranting sprees in order to catch the ultimate prize in which was Jerry but for some reason beyond his control Jerry was infamously always getting away. As in life we strive for the biggest of prizes at times but what happens when the ultimate prize you crave is beyond your reach? One little bitty taste of it and we always crave the unattainable but what happens when the unattainable is finally reached?

This is the 1st book in the Torrid Trilogy

Jack-handsome, smart, hunky

Tora-pretty, smart and hidden

Seth-cute, ego problem

Tora is a woman with a mission but not just any mission to her it is about honesty, love and the pursuit. She loves her family with all her heart but something in her past has gone arise and with all her might she will stop at nothing to right the wrong. No cost to this beautiful woman in to high but is it? In this midst of trying to get to the truth a man comes into her path that takes her breath away. She begins to falter slightly just when the end of her mission is in sight. Will she be able to finish what she has started or will she untangle more of what she had not suspected and continue on this path or will this one man convince her that he is her path?

Seth is a man that isn’t very bright to be honest. He has always been coddled by his mother in which for him life has always been jaded for he does not know the real the world. He loves his drink and he thinks show casing a woman on his arm is the way to get what he such desires but is it? When an unexpected tragedy occurs within his family will this he be able to continue on with the life he has so been accustomed to? Will Seth marry the show case on his arm?

Jack is a hunky man that can have any woman he such desires but what happens when the woman he spots is his brothers show case? His eyes go bright, his stomach begins to ache he starts seeing a future with the woman that is not his to want but his heart has other ideas will he follow his heart or will he just let the showcase go?

This is their journey.

To the author: You have totally left me wordless when writing this review. I wish there was more that I could put in this review but with true honesty I have to let this review be like this. I do not want to give anything away and I fear in writing more that I will. This book has so many twists in it that it really is that great. A love story evolving within the pages, scandal, intrigue and stars. You have brought so much to these pages writing more would just not work for this reviewer. Major Kudos

To the reader: Sit back and enjoy and get a screaming towel you will surely need it

Happy Reading


Jack leaned in the doorway of the study giving me a cool smirk and my blood simmered. I’d been so careless. My mind spun, trying to weave the lie that might satisfy Jack as to why I was in this room alone. I didn’t belong here and he knew it. Seth accepted my lies so easily. Jack, I suspected, was a different species altogether.

“You seem to have a habit of sneaking up on me,” I said. He was casual, I would be too.

“You seem to have a habit of sneaking off,” he said. He moved away from the door and came toward me.

“She didn’t like me very much, your stepmother,” I said. I would stick to as much of the truth as I dared. He doesn’t know anything, I reminded myself. Until five minutes ago, I’d been careful.

“Me either,” Jack said. He was no more than a foot away from me. He had his hands in the pockets of his dress pants, making his suit jacket lay open. His crisp, white shirt stretched across his broad, strong chest. “Were you not good enough for her little boy, Seth?”

I sat back on the desk, crossing my arms in front of me I let my bare feet dangle. I had tossed my shoes in a heap by the door. Out there, I owned the dress Seth made me wear. It served my purpose to act as his trophy. In here though, it was just Jack. And he had a way of looking through me that made me feel naked.

“I didn’t know her very long,” I said. “She barely knew me before she died. I didn’t take her opinions personally.”

When Jack smiled, his eyes flashed. “You think you would have survived if she had?”

“What do you mean?”

“I mean…how long have you been engaged to Seth? Two months, three? My guess is she was just starting to do her number on you.”

“Maybe,” I said. “But, like I said. I didn’t it take personally. I find a lot of people make assumptions about me at their peril.”

Jack nodded. “I think I can see that.”

“So what were you hoping to find by sneaking off back here?” I said. The second I said it, I knew I’d found my hook. Jack’s eyes darkened.

“Just looking around,” he said. “You know this wasn’t originally Miranda’s house. My father bought it for my real mother just a few months before she passed away. We never lived here though. It needed renovations. Miranda ended up doing them. What do you think of the place?”

“It’s big,” I said. A pulse beat toward Jack’s throat and I wondered if that was his tell. It beast faster as soon as he started talking about his real mother. “I think I would have gone with a more modern, less ostentatious flare.”

Jack nodded. “Maybe you’ll still get the chance. That’s what you’re after isn’t it with Seth? The money. The house. That’s the rumor everyone’s spinning.” His words were cruel but his eyes held mischief.

It was bait I was smart enough not to take. So, I cast my own. “What are you after? Seth got everything didn’t he? The money. The house. But you…you’ve always done fine on your own haven’t you? What could Seth possibly have that you still want?”

I smiled and tucked my hair behind my ear. Something in Jack’s expression shifted when I did it. He froze, the smirk melted off his face and a shadow came over him. He moved in close and cupped his hand around the back of my head, tilting it sideways. His breath was hot against my cheek. Until now, it was Miranda’s scent, Miranda’s presence that filled my senses in this house. In an instant, Jack Manning wiped all of that away.

I misread the gesture as he came close to me. Or maybe I didn’t. But, when Jack’s skin touched mine, it ignited something that I’d known was there from the second I saw him. My flesh burned hot where he touched me. I took in his clean, musky scent. My eyes locked with his. His brown eyes widened and flashed, seeing something in mine that he maybe hadn’t expected.

I could say I don’t know why I did it. I could say it just happened. But that would be yet another lie. I wanted him. I wanted something that was real even if it was just for one moment.

Jack brushed my earlobe with his thumb and I brought my hands up, sliding them across his shoulders and up along the back of his neck. I drew him down to me and brought my lips to his.

I kissed him.

There was the slightest tension in his arms but then he responded. Jack pulled me against him so every part of me touched him. I might have been naked since I had only the thin silk of my dress protecting my skin from his touch. His chest was firm and warm, his skin hot under my fingers as I drew him down even closer. As I pulled him forward, his weight pressed me further on the desk. He kissed me back slow and deep, his tongue probing, his lips a feathery touch against mine. He was holding back. When he finally broke away, the pulse at his throat beat furiously. My chest heaved as I tried to catch my breath.

Jack didn’t say anything but kept his eyes locked with mine until he took two steps backward and turned toward the door. He took the knob in his hand and for an instant, I thought he was leaving. Instead, he quietly closed the door and engaged the lock. Then, he turned back toward me, his eyes smoldering. Heat flared between my legs as he came back to me with four strong strides.

Book Blurb

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover, comes the second book in a combustible new series, Welcome to the Point, that is sexier, darker, and better than ever.

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like The Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?

Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.

Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life . . . if it means losing herself to him?

paula 5 stars

I’ll be honest…when I read “Better When He’s Bad” and was introduced to Race for the first time, I didn’t like him very much. In fact, he annoyed the living hell out of me. So I was a bit wary about “Better When He’s Bold”, knowing it’s a whole book just about him. But what shall I say – a few pages in and he won me over with his golden looks, his intoxicating mix of good and bad, right and wrong, sweet and dangerous.
His inner conflict, his determination and ambition made me like and even respect him.

Formerly a rich and spoiled boy, he’s now a man that looked behind the facade of the rich and the famous and had to realize that all that glitters isn’t necessarily gold. One of those things and maybe the most important one that shaped who he is today, was finding out his own father is evil through and through, yet hides behind a mask of an upstanding member of society.
Race learned quickly that this empty life full of lies isn’t his cup of tea. Instead, he’s trying to make his way in the most run-down, criminal part of the city, the Point – where he’s trying to become the ruler of the hopeless and the lawless. That itself wouldn’t necessarily be a redeeming quality, but his reasons for what he does aren’t greed or the thirst for power. His motives are of the ulterior kind, even if slightly on the crazy side. His will to fight for a town and people that would sell him out without thinking twice about it, makes it hard not to admire and respect him – despite his criminal and at times heartless actions. The constant struggle to not get consumed by the evilness and darkness of the Point, but to adapt while keeping his personality intact, is something he deals with every moment of what is now his life.
So when that life leads him to Brysen, his sisters best friend, he feels she might be the one thing to keep him grounded. But with his aim to help her when her life is consumed by one catastrophe after another and his attempt to keep hold of the weak control he has over the Point, he might’ve bit off more than he can chew.

Brysen on the other hand has her own struggles and would prefer to not add Race to the mix. Instead of enjoying college life and partying her nights away, she has more responsibilities than she cares to think about. Dealing with a man that not only short-circuits her brain and vagina, but is also involved in criminal activity, is a surefire way for heartache and trouble. But despite all of her reservations, the attraction and draw she feels towards him are hard to resist – not only because of his good looks and skills in the sack, but also because she can see the goodness in him that even the Point can’t taint. He also sees her for who she is – the real her, not just her beauty, her background or her icy outside persona.
And when truths come to light that shatter the rest of her safety and when her life gets caught in a web of danger, he might be the only person she can trust. The only person that’s willing to be there for her.
I adored Brysen. She didn’t have it easy, but she isn’t one to wallow in self-pity. She’s a fighter, more often than not willing to sacrifice her freedom and joy for the ones she loves. She’s determined and brave. Her strength keeps her going, but it doesn’t mean she isn’t vulnerable or doesn’t feel weak at times. She’s does, but she doesn’t give up. I was in awe of her fierceness, but also of her love and unconditional acceptance of the people she cares about.

The relationship between her and Race is refreshingly straight-forward. There are no games no hiding and no holding back. What starts out as raw, primal sexual attraction, quickly develops into something more. I loved that neither of them are fighting what’s happening, while at the same time they aren’t jumping in with both feet. They are aware of the hardships their relationship might and will encounter as the Point isn’t a cosy and shiny place.

The other fabulous characters that Jay Crownover created add to the atmosphere that is unique to the Point. They are original, gritty and complex, yet seem extremely real. I’m addicted to the Point. And now I can’t wait for Titus’ book. And then I hope that a book about Booker will follow as well. I need more stories about the guys from the Point. Many many more stories. Because it’s Jay Crownover’s unique talent to completely emerge the reader in the world she creates with her words. And it’s worlds most of us would never get a taste of otherwise.

5 there’s-a-fine-line-between-right-and-wrong stars.


I nodded stiffly and bent over to get my laptop out from under the seat where I stashed it. When I turned back around, I felt heat rush into my face because bent over like that, I had clearly given Race the opportunity to check my ass out at its best. The green in his eyes had turned to something much darker, and I gulped nervously.

“What’s wrong with the computer?”

I held it protectively against my chest while his eyes rolled over me. It was unnerving to be the sole focus of a guy like Race. I felt like he was trying to get a look inside me, like he was systematically trying to figure out all the bits and pieces that made me tick.

“I don’t know. I turned it on and the screen was just blue. I know it’s bad, but everything I need for school is in there, so I have to do something.”

He lifted a sandy brow and reached for the laptop. “You don’t back anything up on an external drive or on an outside database, like Google Drive?”

I groaned and shoved my palms into my eye sockets. “Really, Race? If I was smart enough to do that, do you think I would be praying that you can fix it? Nothing is ever that easy in my life.”

He just watched me, his mouth turning down in a little frown. I much preferred that look on his exquisite face to the one he wore when he was flashing that sexy dimple at me. It was easier to resist.

“When do you need it back by?”

“I have a paper on there that is due tomorrow, but the teacher is pretty cool and will let me slide until Monday if I explain the situation. What I really need are my Math Theory notes. I have an evil TA who’s got it in for me because I turned him down when he asked me out. I’m barely passing the class, and without the notes, I’m beyond screwed.”

His eyes sank even further into midnight and his frown got even tighter. His broad chest rose and fell as he took a deep breath and let it out slowly.

His eyebrows dipped low over those dark eyes, and his voice was even rougher than normal when he asked me, “What is going on with you, Brysen? Why does every single thing you’ve said to me tonight make me want to hurt things and various people?”

I gulped a little and shivered as we just watched each other silently.

“Life isn’t always fun and games, Race. You have to know that better than most people.”

He shook his blond head and took a step back from me. I really, really wanted to reach out and snatch him back. He was so bad for my self-control.

“No, it’s not, but you’re a good girl and too pretty for words. Things shouldn’t be that hard for you.”

Well, they were, and I was just going to have to live with it.

“Do you think you can save it?”

He took another step back and grinned. I swear everything that made me female melted and turned liquid when that dimple indented his cheek.

“I’m pretty skilled at whatever I put my mind to, Brysen.”

The sexy undercurrent made me want to whimper.

“When do you think I can have it back?”

“Give me your number. I have a bunch of shit to take care of tomorrow, but after that’s all handled, I’ll look at it. Give me until the weekend.”

That was only three days. Aside from Math Theory, I should be able to make do until then. I rattled off my number and scowled when he didn’t pull out his phone to enter it in.

“You’re going to remember that?” I hated that I sounded like I was pouting about it.

“I won’t forget it, Bry. Everything about you is very memorable.”

Ugh … that kiss. It was going to haunt me forever. I shifted uneasily and pushed off the car.

Book Blurb

After the love of her life walks out the door, Abby Simmons is depressed, run down, and overwhelmed. Working long days as an attorney in a busy firm is sucking the life out of her and Abby feels she is at the end of her rope. Then, a co-worker recommends a new type of spa called Paradise. He promises their therapies will shake off her lethargy and help her to regain her sparkle. Skeptical, but very curious, Abby decides to visit the establishment. At first, what she hears sounds too good to be true, but soon Abby uncovers a whole new world of pleasure that quickly becomes her undoing.

Step behind the door to embark on a journey where surrendering to desire is only the beginning. Welcome to Paradise.


Before I could react, he had pried my legs apart and was working along my inner right thigh, moving slowly upward. By now, my reservations were gone and I surrendered to him. And when his fingers reached the junction between my legs, I gasped when his hands slipped under my butt and gripped my cheeks, squeezing them in his hands. He could see every intimate part of me, I was sure of it. Letting go of my butt, his hands came around to my folds. At that moment, when his finger slipped between my legs, I clapped my hand over my mouth, suppressing my scream.

His fingers moved along my folds, tracking my wetness up and down. I was so wet at this point that my insides heaved with desire as he stroked me. I wanted to cry out, ask him what he was doing, but I didn’t. I let him manipulate my folds, slowly, methodically bringing me to orgasm. My hips began rocking in time with his hands. God, those hands were making me feel things I never thought possible. I could feel my climax building, like a wave caught in the shallows it was gaining momentum, waiting to wash over me.

I was at his mercy now. I ached for release and was willing to do anything to achieve it. But when his finger inched back and forth over my vagina, teasing me with the promise of what was to come. I bit my lip, desperate for him to penetrate me. His fingers did not wait long to slip inside of me, and when I felt the pressure of him moving deeper, I arched my back and moaned. He was rubbing back and forth over that spot, the one so many men try to find but give up. Well, Mr. Hands knew exactly where my spot was, and as he slowly moved in and out of me, I knew I was going to come harder than I had ever come before.

Book Blurb

I know what you’re thinking. It’s unconventional to want a man nine years older than you. It’s inconvenient to crush on your dearest friend’s older brother. It’s silly to pine after a man for six years. It’s cliché to lust after a celebrity. It’s pathetic to fall in love with a man who barely knows you exist.

I know what you’re thinking because I’ve thought it all, too. And yet that hasn’t stopped me from wanting Blake Campbell. Charming, gorgeous, brilliant, kind, selfless – Blake is everything I’ve ever wanted, but he doesn’t see me that way. In fact, he hardly noticed me until one night.

Traumatic events brought us together for the first time, but then he tossed me aside. I know it’s irrational, but I wanted him up until the moment he left me lying there alone.

When his eyes finally open and he finds out I’ve left, will it be too late?

I was given this book for my honest review

A favorite lunch of yesterday was always the infamous grill cheese sandwich. How two pieces of bread no matter the kind had butter spread upon each side with the yellow American cheese in the middle placed upon the griddle to make the sizzling sound that we all loved to hear. As our parents flipped the sandwich we all knew what was yet to come upon our plate. Looking upon the grill cheese we can also see the simple yet complex message that is what just not in our youth that we loved the sandwich but also in our adulthood. Memories that have been handed down from one generation to the next for we will always have our grill cheese embedded in our hearts and souls.

Stella-funny, quirky and serious

Blake-hunky, sexy

Zoe-Blake’s sister

Stella is a woman that can have any man that she could possibly want but her heart has only been with one man since first sight. She can never imagine that any man would be able to stand up to the man of her dreams. With being hungry for advancement in her own right she craves the unattainable the man that has held her heart for forever but as her heart knows that reaching the unattainable will be a great hard road but in the end will it be worth the fight or will she walk away?

Blake is a heartthrob of a man that can have any woman he such desires. He has had one mission in his life since a terrible accident happened in his path that took the lives of his loved ones. His sister Zoe has been the one woman that he has always been out to protect and will continue to protect but to what cost? When he meets a woman that Zoe highly regards as her best friend will this woman have the eyes that capture his heart? Will he be able to step back as his sister’s protector and be the man that his heart knows he truly can be or will he stay on his current path and let happiness wither?

Blake and Stella’s journey is not one that is easy to fathom with all the turmoil that has been going on in Blake’s life but at the same time the rock that has held him together all along without question has been Stella. Inside the bedroom they are hotter than a volcano but outside the bedroom it seems the world is just too much for Blake at times. Will Blake and Stella make it to finding their happily ever after into forever or will it wither? This is their amazing journey.

To the author: This amazing read had me in flabbergasted and in awe from the very first page till the last. You have put so much into these two amazing characters that the love and the awe has shown brightly from word one. I hope your readers enjoy this amazing read just as much as I have. Kudos once again to you.

To the readers: Sit back and enjoy

Happy Reading


They say life is about choices. You spend your life making decisions and dealing with the consequences, whether they are positive or negative. In my tumultuous frame of mind, I make a choice. A very poorly thought out choice, but one that I have to live with, nevertheless.

As soon as Cassidy finishes her encore, I tell the girls that we’re going backstage to meet the singer. They follow behind the private elevator to the lower level of the Chi Center, talking giddily. I push their voices out of my mind, leading them with long, purposeful strides.

There are perks to owning the joint. The security guards clear the way for me, knowing not to bother me when I’m in a foul mood.
With a short knock, I push my way into Cassidy’s crowded backstage room. The moment she lays her fake-eyelash covered gaze on me, she squeals. The sound hurts my ears, but I pretend it doesn’t.

“Blake Campbell, I didn’t know you were coming back here!” She literally launches herself at me, latching her over tanned arms around my neck and thrusting her glitter-speckled tits against my chest.

And then, in plain sight of Stella, I yank the pop star into my arms and thrust my tongue down her throat.

You are a moron.
