Synopsis

I’m nobody. I’m an orphan. A janitor. A college student. A virgin.
And him? He’s a god. One of the hottest action stars to ever grace the silver screen, huge and muscular and gorgeous and famous. He could have anyone in the world.
Yet, despite the chasm separating my world from his, I find myself in his hotel room, and he’s acting like I’m the most beautiful girl in the world. I’m not. He’s everything every woman could ever want, and I’m just…me.

***

She doesn’t know how sexy she is, and that’s it’s own kind of beauty. But for real, she’s gorgeous. I’ve met some of the hottest women in Hollywood, and none of them can hold a candle to this girl. I want her. And the fact that she’s closed off and impossible to figure out only makes the pursuit that much more intriguing.
The last thing I expect is for one night of pleasure to turn into something I’m unable to forget, even after she’s gone her way and I’ve gone mine. I can’t forget her, no matter how I try. And the next time we run into each other, I know there’s no way I can let her go again. No matter what it takes.

***This is a full length, stand-alone contemporary romance, set in the world of STRIPPED***

Misha

Trashed is the story of Des Ross and Adam Trenton. Des is a beautiful college student working as a janitor to pay her way through school. As an orphan, she has never had a real home or anyone she could count on but herself. Adam is a major Hollywood action star visiting Des’ island for the weekend to attend a charity fundraising gala. From the moment he lays eyes on Des he is immediately drawn to her and sets out to get to know her better. Des can’t deny that she feels something more when she is with Adam, but is it enough? Can Adam help her conquer the demons of her past?

I loved Des from her very first interaction with Adam. She was so full of attitude, but beneath her tough exterior was a woman who had not had an easy life. My heart went out to her knowing how she had been shuffled from foster home to foster home and how much she deserved someone she could trust. She didn’t want to talk about her past, but when she finally did I was in awe of her strength. I could completely relate to Des’ insecurity about both her body and the type of relationship she could have with Adam. Their lives were so dramatically different, and it was difficult for her not to be fixated on that.

Adam was a great man. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from his character given his profession, but I found him to be very genuine. I loved the way he pursued Des and was so vocal about his attraction to her. He felt more than just a physical connection, though, and I appreciated that he wanted to know more about her as a person. Adam had the perfect combination of sexiness and tenderness. Although he had been hurt before, he was still open to the possibility of a future with Des. As the book progressed he completely stole my heart and proved that he was more than deserving of Des’ love.

This book was hot, hot, hot! Jasinda Wilder definitely knows how to write some incredibly steamy scenes. One of the things I like the most about her writing, however, is how she balances those parts with more emotional, relationship-building scenes. I was rooting hard for Des to let Adam in and accept his love. It was easy to believe in them as a couple and hope they could make it work. I truly enjoy Wilder’s work, and I would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a story that is both sexy and sincere.

review by jamie

There are so many things that I loved about Trashed! First off, I’m warning every reader ahead of time that Trashed is a “lust at first sight” type of storyline. Sometimes these stories come across cheesy to me and impossible to believe, but I really connected with both Adam and Des very quickly, so it worked out perfectly. For me, their relationship bloomed at a great pace and I enjoyed every minute of getting to know the characters better!

Des is a struggling college student working as a janitor to make her ends meet. She has a past that makes her very cautious with every friendship/relationship she encounters. Des had a very unstable upbringing. She has trouble with trust and she longs for a life where she can fully open up, have faith in someone without any reservations or fears.

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” – Maya Angelou

What I love about Des is that she is portrayed as a real life, everyday person. She works hard for everything she has. She struggles with some of the same issues that almost every woman has to contend with, her weight. Des is not fat, but has curves and extra baggage that bothers her, especially around Adam. She has to learn to be comfortable in her own skin and believe what others think of her both outside and inside.

Adam is your typical drop dead gorgeous, sexy and super muscular movie star! He has a bad-boy reputation surrounding him that typically comes with being constantly thrown into the spotlight 24/7. His confidence is very attractive and this personality trait is exactly what Des needs to add in her life,

All I know is that I had to have you, that I had to know you.” – Adam

I think Trashed is a great read because it’s a fun and easy storyline to follow, thoughtfully put together and all-around entertaining! Once I started reading this story, I couldn’t stop thinking about it! There were certain times when I had to stop reading to take care of things in my personal day-to-day life, but all I could think about was, “What is going to happen next?” I guess you could say Jasinda BOOKHOOKED me with Trashed!

I strongly recommend Trashed to every Contemporary or New Adult romance reader that loves the classic poor girl meets rich and famous guy type of stories! You won’t be disappointed!

I give Trashed, 4 LOVE IS POSSIBLE STARS!

Four stars.1

Nikki Review by

Adam and Des have a serious case of lust at first sight. Des knows exactly what she wants from Adam, and it is what she thinks she can only have from him. Adam doesn’t know what he wants from Des, he only knows that he wants her. Their time together is limited, and not a moment of it goes to waste! But then, absence makes the heart grow fonder – but will it cause the mind to be clearer?

Des is beautiful, but in a realistic way. It was beyond refreshing to read about someone who had a normal body! Heroines are normally beaten and broken down, and with unobtainable beauty, but Des is hotter because she is real. Adam is gorgeous, of course. And masculine. And seemingly perfect. Plus, how adorable was he with Oliver? You can’t help but want him to get the girl from the moment he is introduced. Which, I will add, is from the beginning. I have mentioned in other reviews just how much I enjoy reading from the guy’s POV, especially when the book starts off that way. It is just so different than what is normally offered. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a good story, with more realistic bumps in the road to love.

Maddie’s POV

“Cale, you need to go home.”

He closed his eyes and shook his head. “You’re doing it again. You’re pushing me away. I’m tired of it, Maddie. I’m so tired of it.”

I swallowed hard and turned to find my phone. I needed Jack to come pick up Cale.

I was about to dial my phone when Cale grabbed me. He turned me around and backed me up until I hit the living room wall.

His eyes were filled with lust. That look had my panties soaked in seconds.

He lifted up my dress and, in one quick movement, he ripped my panties from my body. I wanted to cry out yes. I wanted to let him take me, but I couldn’t.

“Cale,” I said. “Don’t do this.”

He kissed my neck and I started to give in. When his hand touched my inner thigh, I startled. His lips moved to mine and I moaned, desperately, into his mouth as he lifted my leg.

“Oh God,” I whispered. I tried to come to my senses. “Cale, please don’t do this. We can’t do this.”

He moved his lips to my jaw line as he kissed around to my ear. “Are you turned on by me? Or by him?”

The moment he asked, I felt like a whore. I dropped my leg and pushed him back.

I wiped the tears from my eyes.

“Jesus. I didn’t mean that Maddie. I just—”

“Get out,” I said. “Get out of my house and don’t you dare set foot near me again. I hate you, Cale.”

Review

Unbroken is the anticipated conclusion of the Disclosure series by author RE Hunter.

Fans of book one, Undone, have been anxiously awaiting this dose of Southern Sexy, and believe me, it was well worth the wait!

Book Two picks up right where the first one left off – it’s New Year’s Eve, and Embry has just painfully walked away from the love of her life, Luke Brody, and into the arms of her trusted friend Jeremy. Luke is reeling from Embry’s departure when his past, Sydney, knocks on the door.

Luke and Embry are a favorite couple of mine. They are intelligent characters who both recognize not only the hurt that has passed between them, but also the undeniable attraction that neither of them can ignore. There is a fair amount of back and forth – will they or won’t they be able to make this work – but despite the outside forces pressing in on both of them (Jack and Sydney pull out all the stops), Luke and Bree’s commitment to one another, coupled with the maturity of their relationship, made for a refreshing read. Like most couples, Luke and Embry have their struggles and their disagreements, but these are intelligent characters who have the insight to step back, examine their reactions and the reasons for them, and ultimately reconcile when trouble arises.

I’m a sucker for an HEA, and Unbroken did not disappoint there either. It was clever and playful, which is characteristically Luke and Embry. It left me with a smile, and a little sadness that the story of Southern Sexy and his beautiful girl has concluded.

Five bittersweet stars.

Review

Sweet baby Jesus. This book just blew me away. Different, original, and oh-so-good – that’s the short version to describe the awesomeness of Bella Jewel’s “‘Til Death”.
From the characters, to the story and the writing – there wasn’t a thing that didn’t put me in awe. The only thing that nearly killed me is the mother of all cliffhangers. I am going crazy waiting for book two. But until then, let me tell you about this book first.

Katia is a young woman that doesn’t have it easy in life, but she makes the best of it – despite an awful slave driver of a boss, a sick mother that needs her help, dept and the lack of love and sex.
She is sassy and fun and she enjoy the things she gets to enjoy to the max. She’s humble, caring but also a little naïve. And it is that naïvety that becomes her big mistake when meeting hot stuff Marcus. Falling for him and falling fast, she is swept up in a whole new lifestyle, marrying him a few short months after they’ve met. But her happily-ever-after isn’t how she imagined it to be. Yeah, the sex is great. God, is the sex great. Even just reading about it. But that is about as far as Marcus emotional investment goes. Little does Katia know that she’s a pawn in his game to fulfill his grandfather’s will and gain full control of the family.
Even with this, I didn’t have pity on her. It’s not that I disliked her character – quite the opposite – but she willingly stays with a man who makes an iceberg appear cozy and warm. A man that even in the honeymoon phase is about as romantic as a vibrator. Even though she doesn’t know about the will, she sure as hell suspects repeatedly that he doesn’t love her. And yet, when he buys her a handbag, finally calls her baby or give her lady parts some attention, she chooses to ignore her gut feeling and instead gets all mushy – falling deeper for him. In a way, she gets what she asks for and therefore isn’t really a victim.

Does that make Marcus innocent? Hell to the no. But to my surprise that also doesn’t make him any less likeable. Though he is keeping the truth from Katia, his behavior speaks volumes. He’s a jerk and he doesn’t hide it. But he is a sexy, possessive, controlling jerk. A panty-melting jerk. Not only is he success and smart, good-looking and knows how to please a woman, he’s also bad boy enough to not be a cookie cutter version of a dominant book boyfriend. He’s original, extra-ordinary and in his way ruthless. An explosive mix that made me swoon.

The relationship between Katia and Marcus is fascinating, helped by the fact that we get both points of view and therefore know from the start that Marcus uses Katia for his schemes. But man, does he use her in a sexy way.
Their motives, thoughts and feelings are so well described that I could feel them myself. And I’ll be honest…at the end when the truth came out my heart ached a bit for both of them. They are such a fantastically dysfunctional couple.

I can’t wait to see how the story continues. I have a feeling that Katia will become a badass chick hell-bent on making Marcus pay. And as for Marcus, I think he is hiding more than we know, which might be revealed in the next book.
Until then, I’ll be obsessively staring at my Kindle and rocking back and forth, impatiently waiting for the rest of their story.

5+ creative, original and twisted stars.
