THE SEDUCTION 3 by Roxy Sloane~ Release Blitz

Oh my heck crew!!!
Flirty and Dirty is all over this series. Right from the first book, Vaughn will draw you in with his filthy mouth and schmexy ways. We’re not usually taken with these types of alpha males but damn if he doesn’t set your panties on fire.
This is one of those must read series. They are longer novellas/shorter novel so each book can be read in a couple of hours.
Be sure to check out Davetta and my [D] reviews on Goodreads.

RELEASE DAY

The Seduction by Roxy Sloane

The explosive new series continues….

I thought he would protect me.
I believed his beautiful lies.
I wanted to give him everything – and I was willing to pay the price.

Now everything has changed.

He may be the Seducer, but I’ll be the one who takes the ultimate prize:

His heart.

Part 1:

All women look the same on their knees with their lips wrapped around my cock.


You like to think you’re different, special somehow. But trust me, I’ll have you wet and begging for it before you can think of all those bullshit, good girl reasons why not.

I’m your darkest secret. Your dirtiest fantasy.

Who am I?

The Seducer.

And I’ve never lost a case.

Until her. Keely Fawes. My mysterious new target.

Someone wants to destroy her — and I’m their weapon of choice.

Her secrets could be my undoing. Her innocence will ruin me.

But I don’t care.

I’m going to show her how fucking good it feels to be bad. She’ll come screaming my name if it’s the last thing I do.

Part 2:

Show me a woman who doesn’t like to be dominated,

and I’ll show you a fucking liar.

It’s OK, you can admit it. I won’t tell. You want it rough and deep and dirty. You want to hear the steel in my voice when I tell you exactly how to please me. And you want to know, I won’t hesitate to punish you if you don’t follow my commands to the letter.

Yeah, that’s right. I’ll punish you, and I won’t go gentle either. I’ll bend you over and spank that sweet ass until it’s branded with my handprint. Until it hurts so good, you forget where the line is between pleasure and pain.

Who am I? The Seducer. And now I’m in way over my head.

I thought she was just a job to me, another girl to screw. But now she’s under my skin, and I can’t just walk away. My secrets are spiraling out of control, but I can’t quit now. She doesn’t realize the danger she’s facing — or that her biggest threat is me.

I want to protect her, but I could wind up destroying us both.

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton ~New Review~

Wallbanger (Cocktail, #1)Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

~MUST READ ALERT~ Why has it taken me so long to get to this book! OH MY GAWD!!! This is one of the funniest, sexy books I have ever read! I felt sick every time I had to put this book down because I wanted more. I’m sorry I’m late to the Alice Clayton bandwagon.

Caroline is a brilliant character! Her wit absolutely had me in stitches The one liners, the nicknames she came up with… An incredibly fun character but, one who know what she wants and doesn’t wants out of life. Then we have Simon…. Dear Lawdy I am a swooning mess over this man! Fun loving, sexy the perfect best friend. Oh and DAYUM does he know how to please a woman 😉 Kinda makes me wish I had a hot neighbour when I lived on my own (I had seniors for neighbours 😛 ). I thoroughly enjoyed each character in this book but I have to give a special shout out to Clive. Cat with an attitude…need I say more.

This book seriously has everything I look for in a romance. It’s sexy, well written with great flow, brilliant characters and packed with pulse racing sexual tension. If you are looking for a feel-good romance I promise you will positively fall in love with Wallbanger and Nightie Girl. I know I did <3   Nic

Very rarely do I add quotes to my reviews, but here are a few that had me in stitches 🙂

~“Like some kind of pussified dive bomb, Clive ran at Simon, leaped, and dug into his back, attacking him from behind.”

~“The irony that Simon was literally trying to run away from pussy was not lost on me.”

~“I moaned like a whore in church.
To be fair, I’d never actually heard a whore moan in church, but I had a feeling it sounded a lot like the unholy sounds pouring forth from my mouth.”

CAPTIVATING BRIDGE by Michelle Mankin~ Review

hey crew,
One of my most favourite series– THE TEMPEST SERIES by Michelle Mankin is three books in now. #4 Relentless Rhythm is coming soon but check out my review for #3 CAPTIVATING BRIDGE. You will absolutely fall head over heels for Warren ‘War’ Jinkins. He’s an intense character for sure and so worthwhile your time to read all about him

Captivating Bridge (Tempest, #3)Captivating Bridge by Michelle Mankin

My rating: 3.5/5

Michelle Mankin is one of my favorite authors. The very person she is in life comes out in her stories and her writing—sincere, real, loving, fun, thoughtful and compassionate. CAPTIVATING BRIDGE was no different. Warren “War” Jinkins story was all those things. In every word Mankin made him speak on the pages of this instalment of the Tempest Series, I could picture War. Everything about him. His walk, his talk, his sadness, his hurt and his ability to love and to be loved.
Warren Jinkins is not the quintessential rocker, he is the quintessential misunderstood man. Another point of Mankin’s books is she writes beyond the rock and roll. Her characters are always complex and layered. War is by far her most intricate of characters. And I absolutely loved how she would change up what part of War we saw in every scene.
I will say that in all of Michelle Mankin’s books I have loved the female lead right from the first introduction. In Captivating Bridge, it took me a good part of the book to warm up to her. However, by the end of the story her authenticity revealed itself and she fit. She fit as one of Michelle’s female characters should fit with her rock boys.
I think War’s initial introduction and connection to the female character is what threw me off and bothered me for a good part of the story. I simply felt that given Warren Jinkins character, from our first introduction in the first Tempest book, Irresistible Refrain, he would have never connected with the female m/c. He was too angry and too hurt that I think Shaina (m/c) would have ticked him off more. She was too bubbly (and not that that’s a bad thing) that War wouldn’t have been in the mood to bother with her.
Shaina’s character too was one that was incredibly hurt and had much to give. In the beginning of the story, her father’s opinion would have been too important for her to introduce herself an connected with War the way she did. Also being a celebrity herself, she would have had some inkling as to who War was. She didn’t live under a rock.
Once I was able to get past this initial meeting between the two, I could see Shaina’s character more clearly. She ended up being a stronger and more real character for me.
Overall CAPTIVATING BRIDGE was a great read as all Michelle Mankin’s books are. War is an incredibly intense and on the edge character. I love that Mankin can create a character such as him that you can view in so many ways and angles. His story hits you straight in the heart and you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is one sexy front man who is more than just a rock boy.
If you haven’t started on this series you need to. The Tempest Series is one of my favorite. CAPTIVATING BRIDGE gets 3.5 stars.
I can’t wait for Dizzy’s story RELENTLESS RHYTHM!

leadmenotcover

Synopsis:

In this dangerously sexy novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Find You in the Dark, a straight-laced college student meets a handsome but enigmatic stranger who lures her into an underground club scene, where she finds it difficult to resist temptation

Aubrey Duncan understands loss. She knows what rock bottom looks like, and she is determined to crawl back up to the top after the sudden death of her younger sister. She blames herself for her part in the tragedy, convinced that she could have done something, anything, to help her.

In her effort to gain redemption, Aubrey starts fresh at Longwood University and facilitates an addiction support group, hoping she can support someone else in the way she failed her sister. But what she doesn’t count on is an all-consuming fascination with group member Maxx Demelo, a gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed enigma who hides dark secrets behind a carefully constructed mask. He only reveals what he wants others to see. But Aubrey glimpses another Maxx hidden below the surface—a Maxx who is drowning in his own personal hell.

As Aubrey and Maxx develop an attraction too intense to ignore, he pulls her into the dark underbelly of the city club scene, where she is torn by her desire to save him and an inexplicable urge to join him in his downward spiral. Worst of all, she is beginning to love everything she should run away from—a man who threatens to ignite in her a fire that could burn her alive…

Chapter Excerpt

“X?” I asked, feeling like I had missed an important lesson on college cultural relevance. From the way the two girls were staring at me, I might as well have a damned tattooed on my forehead.

Look at me! I’m the loser who has no appreciation for spray paint on a wall!

“Uh, yeah,” the second girl said, over-enunciating her words as though she were talking to a total idiot. Apparently, I was the idiot in this situation.

“He leaves these pictures for everyone to find. You know, to help people find where Compulsion will be over the weekend. You can tell it was him. See the tiny Xs in the drawing along the back of the hand,” girl number one answered, with just enough nattiness to make me want to slap her.

But again, my curiosity got the better of me, and I overlooked her huge case of bitchitis. “What the hell is Compulsion?” I asked, throwing a little of my own bitchiness into the question.

“Are you kidding? Have you been living under a rock for the last decade?” a guy snorted from behind me. Bitch One and Bitch Two snickered, and I gave them a look that was meant to shut them up but only prompted simultaneous eye rolling.

I looked over my shoulder and tried my look of death on my newest ridiculer. The guy had the sense to take a step back and drop his sneer.

“Uh, it’s just that Compulsion is the biggest underground club in the state. Finding the location in the painting is part of the mystery. It’s like a real-life urban legend,” the guy explained.

I looked back at the picture, clearly not seeing what I was supposed to. I wished I could share in everyone’s enthusiasm. Their anticipation was tangible.

The girls pulled out their cell phones and started punching the numbers into their GPS. As people figured out the super-mysterious location, there were shrieks and whoops of excitement.

Normally I didn’t think too long about how much I had missed in my single-minded focus to become Aubrey Duncan, super student.

But right now, surrounded by people who clearly had way more excitement in their lives than I did, I felt like I had forgotten about some necessary step in the whole growing-up-and-experiencing-life thing.

Ugh, this was way too deep for a Friday night. There were reruns of Judge Judy on the DVR calling my name.

“Good luck,” I told the less-than-friendly group before pushing my way back through the crowd.

I headed off campus and walked the two blocks to my empty apartment. The loneliness that greeted me was more pronounced than it had ever been before.

And for the first time in years, I hated it.

Excerpt

Moore To Lose by Julie A Richman (Book Two: Needing Moore Series)

Damn, this woman could bring him to his knees. There they were – both standing there, naked. Vulnerable. The truth was finally out. And if he was standing there high on the edge of a  cliff, he wasn’t standing there alone anymore. Mia had joined him. She was as bold and fearless as she’d always been. This was the Mia Silver with whom he had fallen hopelessly in love.

“We’re going to be ok, Mia,” he reassured her. He wasn’t going to allow himself to believe anything else. He could picture her shaking her head yes on the other end of the phone as he heard her trying to hide her tears. He pictured gently wiping them away with his thumb.

“You promise, Schooner?”

And as always with Mia, making a promise was so damn easy. “I promise, Baby Girl.”

FLIRTY AND DIRTY BOOK BLOG’S REVIEW OF COME TO ME SOFTLY BY A.L. JACKSON

Come to Me Softly (Closer to You, #2)Come to Me Softly by A.L. Jackson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Come to Me Softly is another incredibly moving read by A.L. Jackson. How I have missed Jared and Aleena
~~DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ COME TO ME QUIETLY~~

Every now and then, you meet certain characters in a story that touch your heart. And once they have…you’ll never forget them. Aleena and Jared from A.L. Jackson’s series, Closer to You are two of those characters for me. Destined to be together but so many forces trying to keep them apart, you can’t help yourself from becoming emotionally invested in these two beautiful souls. It also doesn’t hurt that their story is full of sexy goodness either <3

In Come to Me Softly Aleena and Jared are faced with a future they both desperately want but aren’t sure they can have. The ghosts from Jared past threaten to tear them apart, leaving them both fighting for that one true love.

A.L. Jackson knows how to write powerful scenes, gutting me when Jared confronts his past…OH EM GEEEE! Oh the ANGST!!! So many scenes where my heart ached for Jared, I just wanted to hold him and take his pain away. Yet there were many other scenes where he melted my heart and made me a swoony mess. Aleena is such a strong and amazing character, I felt her pain as she defended the man she loved – desperate for everyone to accept their future when she wasn’t sure of it herself. Again…the ANGST! But along with the angst comes love…heart bursting love!

If you are hoping that the continuation of Jared and Aleena’s story is as epic as it was in Come to Me Quietly, you won’t be disappointed. Emotional, endearing and sexy as hell… This beautiful, haunting story is about forgiveness and moving on. Another couple created by A.L. Jackson that I will never forget.  Nic

Check out my review and author interview. i loved this book!!! I will also be giving away 2 Kindle copies of Insipid. Leave a comment to this post to enter.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00025]

 

Synopsis:

Banal. Lifeless and Colorless. These are the words that describe my life. I’ve made the right choices, done all the right things. I’m strong, intelligent and highly successful. 

I’ve lived scrupulously, loved greatly, and shared my blessings equitably. 

But life hasn’t been fair with me.

Now I’m drowning in the middle of the ocean, desperately searching for the shore, surrendering to the fact that I will never be happy.

Then he came along.

Life is unpredictable. You can play it safe and resist change for fear of the unknown. Or you can close your eyes and take the leap with the knowledge that your life will change forever. 

Which one will I choose?

My name is Jade Richmond and this is my story.

Review:
InsipidInsipid by Christine Brae

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having read Christine Brae’s previous two books, I was excited about Insipid. The title alone, makes it a TBR book. One point about her books that really attract me to her stories is the utmost sincerity– you have to live some of the heartbreak experienced by her characters to write about it. Women who have suffered loss on so many levels (family, love, personal, self, emotional) will know what Jade Richmond, the female m/c journeys through in this story. Women who on the outside have it all but on the inside are trying to fill a void will understand. Insipid isn’t a story of weakness but a story of strength and knowing your self worth. Finding the true love that is within yourself– to fight through the insipid confines of life from letting go of the vibrancy of love to save the heart.
Christine Brae’s writing reminds me of the sea. You can float along with the story, revel in its beauty but when you aren’t expecting it, there can be a harsh undertow. Her words flow like a gentle tide and there are some scenes that crash like a wave into your heart. And you drown in the depths of those emotions. I absolutely that her stories are of true love not fantasy and unattainable. Love that all of us women can experience or have experienced. The insecurities of love, the truths of love, the strength of love and the ever changing seasons of love.
Her metaphors and descriptions in scenes and character interaction are beautiful and thought provoking.
There were a couple of characters and a couple of scenes I felt did not add to the story and were just there. However they didn’t take away from the story or interrupt the story. Simply, they made me question the motive for including them.
Her characters can be loved and hated. They are insecure. They are arrogant. They are undesirable and the are most certainly captivating. Her stories also offer a sense of spirituality without preaching or being over the top. In a sense her stories are calming, even amongst the angst throughout the plot.
I love that I can curl up with a mug of tea or a glass of wine and wrap myself in Christine Brae’s stories. The words she puts to pages are ones that resonate with you. They merely aren’t only in passing. For me, Insipid was one of those must reads.
D 4/5

Interview:

Hey love, thank you so much for taking the time to answer a few questions here at Flirty and Dirty.

  1. This is your third book now. How has your writing changed form your first to this one?

Hi! I’m so happy to see you. What an honor once again to be here with Flirty and Dirty.

Oh gosh. I was just asking myself that question. I only know that my writing has evolved because people tell me that it has. To me, it is still the same process of putting the thoughts and emotions that bombard my head in written form. But what I do notice is that it gets easier to do this with every book that I write. Insipid was written at a time in my life where I was going through unbelievable angst and self-discovery. I wrote it as I experienced it, kind of like a diary in fictional form. And it was easier to do than the first book.

  1. What is your favorite genre to read? Favorite author?

Romance is my ultimate favorite genre to read. I love Anita Shreve. I love Alice Hoffman. I love so many mainstream authors. I’m a hopeless romantic who believes that true love will always win. That if he doesn’t move heaven and earth to have you, he doesn’t love you enough. Or if he tells you that he loves you but ends up with someone else, don’t believe him. Right time, wrong place and vice versa – those don’t work for me. You make your life what it is. Make it the right time and place. He’s 34 and you’re 50. So what.

 Oh gosh. That is totally unrelated. Sorry for the rant.

 I also have many favorite Indie authors who are also such wonderful friends. It becomes difficult to name a favorite author because I see them more as real people. And so, if you asked me who my favorite Indie friends are, it would be more appropriate. And then I will tell you that I don’t have to name them. You know.

  1. Is there a topic which you will never write about or aren’t comfortable writing about?

I will never ever be able to write Erotica. I’m just not good enough. I don’t have the words to describe those types of “events”.

4.  What do you like to do in your free time?

I don’t have much free time at the moment, but when I do, I love to read. And write. I love to travel too. Seeing new places and meeting people from other cultures.

5.  You know this question is standard here… Tell us one flirty ting about you and one dirty thing. 

Ha. This is going to get me in trouble! But I feel so at home with you that I’m going to spill!

Flirty – I was in a bar with friends in New York a few weeks ago and I must have done something when they left me to go to the washroom because the next day, I was getting texts and calls from 2 guys that we met at that bar. Those texts still keep on coming…One thing I want to say to all the women out there – we all deserve to feel beautiful, pretty, wanted. Revel in the double takes that men give you when they pass you on the street, smile back when someone’s eyes linger on you a while longer – whether you’re married or single it makes any long term term relationship much more exciting. And there’s nothing wrong with being a flirt!

I couldn’t agree more. 😉

Dirty – Hmmm. Ask my husband what’s on his phone…

You know I’m going to right? LOL

Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside.

Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain.

Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own.

Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate.

Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.

AboutTheAuthor

AL Jackson New Author Pic
A.L. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of Take This Regret and Lost to You, as well as other contemporary romance titles, including Pulled, When We Collide, If Forever Comes, and Come to Me Quietly.

She first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.

Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three children.

Look for Come to Me Softly and When We Met: Behind Her Eyes coming soon.
