The Mogul's Maybe Marriage by Mandy Klasky

Visit Mindy Klasky's web-site

His grandmother's ultimatum was that he marry, not become a dad. But when brilliant physician Ethan Hartwell searched for the only woman he'd never quite forgotten, he found a two-for-one -- Sloane Davenport was carrying his child! Now Ethan had to decide whether to tell Sloane his darkest secret...

A foster kid, Sloane dreamed of giving her own child a perfect family.  But one incredible night with Ethan left her pregnant and -- outrageously -- fired from her job. Struggling to keep her independence, Sloane refused Ethan's logical proposal. She wasn't about to marry for anything but respect and partnership and love. So what will it take for her "maybe" to become a "yes"?

Naughty D's review:
The Mogul's Maybe Marriage was a sweet, emotional, awwww, book for me.   

With a meddling but loving grandmother Ethan never had a chance to stay a confirmed bachelor.  His grandmother gives him an ultimatium he didn't want to take, however this time it seems like FATE was in cahoots with his grandmother.   There has only been one woman Ethan hasn't been able to forget and they only had one night of passion.  Never in his wildest dreams would he have thought the condom would've failed.   Sloane has had a hard life, moving from foster home to foster home.   All she wants is someone to give her unconditional love, when she finds out she's pregnant she decides to go it on her own, because a billionaire wouldn't want anything to do with a penniless orphan and would only think she was a gold digger.   Ethan discovers his feelings early on but his secret fear drives him away from Sloane.  Sloane is no push over and it takes some manning up by Ethan to win her over. 

This is a great feel good book, yes you will get teary eyed at some points, but in the end it is a great couple of hours escape from your busy day!

It's a Mid-Life ADVENTURE not Crisis

When I was younger and listening to conversations I shouldn't have been...I remember hearing people say "so & so is having a mid-life crisis"  I assumed mid life crisis meant a man or woman were cheating on their spouse, neglecting their kids, buying a new Corvette or Harley, getting tattoos and hanging out at bars.  As I've reached the ripe age of 40 and now have an empty nest I find myself wondering about things I never have before, wanting to try new things...the first time these things came to mind I thought "DAMN, I'm having a mid-life crisis!"
Midway through the second week of my new empty nester status, I realize it's not a Mid Life Crisis, it's a Mid Life ADVENTURE....I wouldn't trade the past 18 years and college brat for anything in the world, she is the sun in my universe.  She brought the beauty of unconditional love into my life, the beauty of being a parent and the beauty of seeing that gorgeous SMILE everyday and knowing I helped create it. When I found out I was pregnant, I made the decision to dedicate 18 years solely to her so I could be the best parent possible, because I didn't want her to become the stereotypical troubled child of a single parent. In doing so that meant I put my social life, as I knew it, on hold and that my friends would all now become people I met through her activities and school, it meant no dating, no hanging out in clubs, it meant all I was and all I did was for her and I LOVED every minute of it.   I do need to point out I have made a few incredible lifelong friends through college brat and love them dearly!!!
I digress...on to the point of this blog....Since I've been in the "good momma" role for so long and now living the single life...I have found there are tons of things I haven't done that a lot of people do when they are "younger" and single.  I do have a tattoo (got it at 30 yrs old) and a nose piercing (got it this year at 40 yrs old) I know I want another tattoo, but there are also other things I've never tried that I have decided I want to try, some are wickedly naughty and some are typically normal, like road trips across the country.  So far I've just sat at my place and read, relaxed..at first I thought I was being a lazy bum, but then I though WAIT for the past 18 years it has been go-go-go non-stop...I deserve a couple of weeks to totally veg out.
So yes, I have decided Mid Life Crisis isn't the appropriate term, it should be Mid Life ADVENTURE because so many of us have devoted our 20's and 30's to raising kids and/or being married and then BAM starting around the age of 40, find ourselves single, for couples just the two of you rambling around with maybe not much in common since the kids are gone and all of us living in an empty nest, which can be lonely. So it's our right to make a list of things we haven't done, but want to do and start the MID LIFE ADVENTURES we EARNED !!!

What are some things you want to do or that you have done in your MID LIFE ADVENTURE???

Review - Mistress's Master by Jayne Rylon

NOT FOR THE TIMID, SQUEMISH, PRUDES or FAINT OF HEART.....LOTS OF BDSM ELEMENTS!!!   I have to say that while this book pushed me past my BDSM comfort zone, I couldn't put it down because I HAD to know what happened with JRad and Lily...but isn't that a mark of a good book..to not be able to put it down even though it pushes your boundries???? I really hope we get a 4th Men in Blue book I want to see what happens with Matt, Clint and Jambrea =)
Visit Jayne's web-site

Nothing can bring her to her knees—except a dose of her own medicine.

Men in Blue, Book 3

Mistress Lily, proprietress of the elite Black Lily club, battles something more frightening than the dark forces of her own desire. SexOffender, a potent aphrodisiac designer drug with terrifying side effects, is ripping through the BDSM community.

Determined to protect her charges, Lily plays a dangerous game, cozying up to the drug’s creator while secretly smuggling victims to safety. It’s a war she’s losing…until the night she spots an undercover cop at what is supposed to be a private bash.

Blind luck scored Jeremy Radisson the break he needed to get close to Morselli. Gaining the kingpin’s trust, though, means revealing parts of his past as a legendary Dom. And teaming up with a woman who doesn’t have a submissive bone in her body, yet dominates his every fantasy.

When Morselli unexpectedly changes the rules, Lily and Jeremy find themselves pitted against each other in a wicked game of who’s-on-top. Lily’s forced to make a desperate choice to prove her loyalty. Jeremy relies on every ounce of his power to keep her safe without blowing their cover while praying they survive long enough to find out if she’ll kneel for him…forever.

Warning: Buckle up! This book is a one-way ticket to Dir-tay Town. Stops along the way include Massive Ménage Village, Sex Machine Square and Fisting City. What else would you expect from an experienced Mistress and the Master who tames her?

Naughty D's review:
I am torn between a 3.5 and a 4, but I am going with a 4 because some of my hesitancy may be due to the fact I wasn't totally comfortable with some of the BDSM practices....I think because this story had so many concepts of the BDSM lifestyle that pushed my limits, I'm having a hard time deciding on a rating.  The sex is hot and LOTS of it...but with lots of people...like I said it pushed my limits, but I LOVE JRad and Lily and wanted a HEA for them. MM shows how beautiful the power exchange between a D/s can be but also how the power exchange can be abused.  Lilly is a Domme and JRad is a Dom, and every time Lily submits to JRad was intense. There are a lot of twist and turns in this book and the ending caught me by surprise in a good way.

I'm torn and may not be able to figure out how to do justice to a full review, I have to step outside of my comfort zone and then look at the reasons JRad and Lilly are the way they are and the fact that the way they are makes their HEA work for them....

I absolutely loved seeing Tyler/Mason/Lacy and Razor and Izzy again.  I love how the Men In Blue and their mates all interact with each other. Ryan, Ben and the new cast Jayne has introduced have also caught my attention.

SOOOOOOO....If your not squeamish and love BDSM books, I say go for it, you most likely will give it a 4 or a 5. This may be one of the dirtiest books I've read ;-) .....me I'm still see-sawing back and forth..Maybe Master Jeremy needs to come torture me (sensual torture) to make me make up my mind.....

Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

The long awaited return to Petal GA for a brand new series about the Murphy siblings and OMG!!  I love this book!!!  for a contemporary romance it is almost erotic hot...I'd say a couple more sex scenes and an anal or menage and it could be erotic. The amount of sex scenes went great with the story.
Visit Lauren's web-site
Seven years ago, Lily Travis was only too glad to see her hometown of Petal, Georgia in her rearview mirror. Thanks to her father running off with a twenty-year-old, though, here she is, trying to pick up the pieces. First order of business: meet with her brother’s teacher in a quest to pull his grades out of a downward spiral.

Nathan Murphy is pretty much resigned to his bachelor status—until he looks up from his desk to see an all-grown-up Lily walking into his classroom. Of all the women who turned out to be totally wrong for him, she’s the only one who felt right. At least until his foolish, immature mistake drove her away.

Lily has to admit that time has been more than kind to gorgeous, sexy Nathan. Except there’s no room on her full plate for another complication. Especially with a man who broke her heart once before.

With a little help from his friends, Nathan has a plan to rekindle the flame. It isn’t long before they’re burning up the sheets. Winning her heart? That’s another matter.

Warning: Hot, sexy high school teacher in denim and boots. Strong-willed females abound. Bad words and naughtiness, too. Come on, you know you want to read it

Naughty D's Review:
One thing I have to say about ALL of Lauren Dane's books is I LOVE her sense of family, the way they all interact, BUT MOST OF ALL I LOVE that her books are super sexy and erotic, but they have H/h who love kink and also have family values =)

Nathan is such a sweet, sexy Alpha. He knows he hurt Lily years ago and regrets it. Upon seeing her for the first time in years he realizes he is still in love with her and makes up his mind to win Lilly back and has no qualms using all his Murphy siblings and the Chase brothers and their wives.  Lilly is trying to save her 15 year old brother from going down the wrong path, her mother from falling into an even deeper state of depression and alcoholism, deal with her dad who left her mother for "teenage barbie" and Nancy, Lilly's evil, jealous petty sister.  Add to that stress is the fact that Nathan refuses to let her ignore him and their chemistry, which means she has to deal with the hurt and heartbreak he inflicted on her years ago.

Nathan's pursuit and determination to win Lilly back is one of the hottest "wooing" stories I've read in a while, maybe the hottest contemporary "non-erotic" story I've read ever.
I enjoyed seeing the couples and Polly and Edward from Lauren Dane's, Chase Brothers series.  I love Petal GA....hmmm wondering if there are any jobs there ;-)

Note: I wouldn't say you have to read the Chase Brothers' series first, but to get a full understanding of the secondary characters in the Petal GA series, you will want to read it if not before, then after you read Once and Again.

I give Once and Again a solid

Cowgirls Don't Cry releases in print today!! CONGRATS to Lorelei James!!!

Lorelei James book Cowgirls Don't Cry, releases in print today.  Get a piece of Lorelei James' history because Cowgirls Don't Cry is the first book to be released in print that has the highly coveted phrase "New York Times Best Seller" above Lorelei's name!  This is one of my favorites of the series, it's emotions are a little darker, but it still has the Lorelei James magic and the smokin' hawt cowboy McKay luvin!!
Visit Lorelei and her SMOKIN' HAWT Cowboys!!

Good girls can play rough too…
Rough Riders, Book 10

Jessie McKay has accepted her marriage to Luke McKay wasn’t perfect. After two years of widowhood, she’s ready to kick up her bootheels—until Luke’s younger brother shows up to spoil her fun. But if Brandt thinks she’ll ever take orders from another McKay male, he’s got manure for brains.

Brandt McKay has avoided his sweet, sexy sister-in-law ever since the night he confessed his feelings for her weren’t the brotherly type. Unexpectedly faced with proof of Luke’s infidelity, Brandt is forced to ask for Jessie’s help in taking care of Luke’s young son. Jessie agrees on one condition—she wants Brandt’s boots exclusively under her bed for the duration.

The sexual heat that’s always simmered between them ignites. Brandt is determined to make the temporary situation permanent, proving to Jessie he’s a one-woman man. And Jessie is shaken by feelings she’s sworn never to have again for any man…especially not a McKay.

Warning: Contains branding-iron-hot sex , the one McKay on earth whowants to be tamed, and a woman who’s decided tame is for nice girls who finish last.

Naughty D's review:
TRULY ADDIDCTING SERIES and the HITS just keep coming!!! Cowgirls Don't Cry is heartbreaking, heartwarming and sensual all wrapped up in one truly AMAZING book.

Brandt & Jessie's story is emotional and hot, with humor to keep it well rounded. It's one of my favorites, I want to go find a Brandt of my own. I stayed up til 3:00 am to finish Cowgirls Don't Cry in one session.

DO NOT be turned off by reviews talking about the prologue, yes it is raw and different. But as one reviewer states, it shows us how desperate Jessie is to break free of her past, to OWN her sexuality. I know or have heard of women that do things they wouldn't normally do because they are either broken hearted or trying to break free of some type of tramatic event in their lives or just feel something is missing from their lives. LIFE is NOT all roses, rainbows and kittens, life isn't wrapped in a neat package. Life is ugly, messy and confusing. The great thing about LJ's writing, is she takes the good, the bad and the ugly and puts it in her books, and makes them feel realistic.

Lorelei can't put the Rough Riders books out fast enough for her fans. 

NOTE: I've now read this book THREE times and each time I pick up something new and different.

Latest From Jaci Burton on the Play By Play series

I am so freaking excited!!!   The following was just posted by Jaci Burton on her facebook:

I have some news on the Play-by-Play series!

Book Four of the Play-by-Play is titled PLAYING TO WIN, and will release in late summer/early fall of 2012. More soon.

How about a teaser?

IOU Sex by Calista Fox

Fiona Carlisle didn't think anything could hurt as much as finding her fiancé in bed with her sister. But receiving an invitation to the happy couple's engagement party comes a close second. Determined to prove to her family and herself that she's moved on, Fiona has every intention of attending, looking red-hot and with an even hotter man on her arm. And there's only one man who will do: renowned photographer and reputed playboy Michael Houston.
Fiona's rebound fling with Michael was a brief but erotic romp. Michael has made no secret of the fact that he's still interested. So when Fiona asks him to escort her to the engagement party, he agrees, with one condition: she must spend a sensual weekend with him picking up where they left off.
Intensely attracted to Michael, Fiona can't resist his offer for long. But when the weekend is over, will she be able to resist giving him her heart?
20,000 words

Naughty D's Review:
IOU Sex was a good SHORT read.  Actually it felt like I was reading a few chapters out of what could be a great full length book.

I loved seeing how Fiona stood up to her family and faced her commit fears. Micheal is one sexy, smokin' hot, sweet man.

I really liked Michael and Fiona and would've loved to have seen a full length book starting with Fiona walking in on her fiance and sister, then falling into Michael's arms and Michael wooing Fiona.

IOU Sex is an erotic romance with sizzling sex that is not raunchy, it is a great read for a day on the boat, at the pool or beach.
