Josie's review

4.5 stars

 

Holy Hellz Bellz, what a trip!!!! I am in love with Mr. X and Jay. What can I say I am a mindf*k slut. The author totally had me fu*cked up from the beginning until the very end. Wow, just wow, where do I even begin.

 

First off this book is a fast paced read, and you need to pay attention because things take off quickly. The author gives us past and present views points as well as a dual POV’s, which I love!!!! If you like a good WTF is happening read then this is your book!!!

 

This was a very dark read about Jay and Mr. X. Jay does not remember her childhood or where she came from. She knows something bad has happened but she cannot remember what it is. Jay, is a tough, wise and strong woman. She has a drug problem, works at a strip club and on occasions she turns tricks to support her habit. When Jay finds herself in a dangerous after a trick goes bad, she is put in a situation that she cannot escape. That is until a scary and sexy stranger saves her. Although this man is scary, she can see something is different a sense of familiarity, a longing and her hesitation is all it takes for Mr. X to claim his prize.

 

Mr. X is a tough, mean assassin, no holds bar killer and is hired to kill Jay. Jay and X have a past together although she can’t remember because of a past injury. He remembers.   He wants her to remember who he is and what she did to him. When he sees Jay’s fight to survive, the viciousness in her eyes, he realizes he doesn’t want to risk never seeing that look again. He wants to take her and make her his. He becomes fixated on Jay. His hate for her drives his very existence. He craves her, but not more than his need to break her. As much as he hates her, he can’t end her life. X takes Jay prisoner, protects her from those who want to kill her and take her away from him.

 

I protect everything that’s mine, because I won’t allow anyone to take it from me. I’m a little selfish, you see. I tend to want more from people than they can offer. Lucky for me, you can handle everything I give to you. I want your blood. I’ll strike you as long as hard as needed until it turns your skin ruby and makes you so wet you’ll spread your legs willingly. But know this little bird, you’ll never be free to begin with, I’ve always been there, in the shadows, lurking, waiting to take my shot. Let me remind you again: I desire your blood, your tears, and your fear.   I want it all. You can choose how. I’ll give you that choice. My belt or your head. SO you decide, which one do you want?”

“I want to live.”

Mr. X is dark, sadistic and bloody hot!! I think being able to go back to the past makes it easier to get into his mind and I felt a sense of compassion for him and ultimately I fell for him. I literally felt the high of the chase, the killing, the mind games and his pain. I knew, albeit as conflicted as it was, I knew him killing had to do with his past and felt a sense of pride whenever he killed anyone that threatened to harm or take Jay from him. As both worlds weave together and enemies try to take Jay, X drags her into his sadistic and dangerous world.   He is able to re-awakening her desire and passion for darkness and pain, slowly tearing down her walls. X is a dominant, passionate, fierce lover; I was completely turned on and needed some of that belt!!! I mean the author delivered scenes that had my panties wet!!

 

“Is this pu**y mine?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Already wet and open to receive my cock. So willing… This little slut wants a co*k?   She’ll get a cock. You like this co*k? Say it!”

“I like your co*k, sir.”

“Not. Good Enough.”

“I want your cock, sir. I love it.”

“Does this little slut want to milk my so badly?”

“Yes sir please can I come?”

“You want my come? I want you to drip as you walk back to the car. Let me come run down your legs and show the world that you belong to me.”

I know, I know what you are thinking he is holding her captive!!!!! But damn, the sex and the story line are perfect. It wasn’t over done or under done it just really worked for me considering the situation, their situation. I was fascinated with this book so much so I could not put it down. When Jay remembers her past and the truth about X is revealed, will X still have Jay as his? Will they survive the threat that is lurking? Or will knowing the truth finally destroy Jay and send her running? Let me just say, this is a stand-alone and readers are kept guessing until the very last page, brilliant, dark and amazing read.

Synopsis
Have you ever felt broken? It feels like a part of you would never be complete again-like it would never heal. Jake Shaw is a bad man, an obsessed and deranged psychotic being who deserves to be locked underneath the walls of the cell he’s rotting in. The beating he received from Allan wasn’t enough and Alecia hopes he gets what’s coming to him. She didn’t ask for this, but he broke her, something she never thought would be possible.

Allan had a secret, an ‘addiction’ so to speak. He was in pain and didn’t have the balls to admit it. The one girl he allowed to get close to him was assaulted by his own brother and Allan beat his ass within an inch of his life. He went through a lot to hide the excruciating pain he endured everyday and his secret was about to be exposed. His life was spiraling out of control.

Could they hold on to the pieces long enough to mend their broken hearts? Or was it impossible?

 

 

 

Josie's review

3.5 stars

 

 

I would recommend that you please read the first book prior to reading this review. There will be spoilers in this review and it is a good idea to know the story behind the characters.

 

 This book in the Forbidden series picks up right where the first ended. Allan hears Alecia screaming and fighting, runs in and sees his brother Jake attacking her. Allan saves Alecia by pulling Jake off of her and beating him. Jake as we know is obsessed with Alecia and he cannot let her go. This book took me on one heck of a ride. We get to see Alecia grow, fight and find out the meaning of true love. I wanted so much for this book to go a certain way but the author surprised me and gave me a much better ending then I was expecting. This book deals with Alecia trying to heal from Jake’s attack and Allan finally becoming mature enough to be the better man.

 
After the prologue the author picks the story up 4 months later. Allan is trying to be there for Alecia by giving her space to heal while still being a loving, caring and compassionate boyfriend, but she is struggling to find peace, safety. And she is miserable. Allan’s behavior surprised me. He was the total opposite from the way he was in the first book, or so I thought. He was injured on his construction job and turns to alcohol and drugs to numb the pain. He makes some bad choices that add to the already fragile relationship they have. Alecia has changed in this one also. She tries to be supportive of what Allan is going through while fighting for their relationship despite Allan’s bad choices.

 

 Alecia is dealing with so much in this book. Jake is constantly sending her notes, his trial is coming up, she received life altering news and Allan reverting to his old ways are just a few that she deals with. Everything eventually takes a toll on her and her health is put at risk. Just when I start to like Allen, he does things that end up making me cry, got me so angry that I hated him even more than I did before. Alecia’s character did a complete 360 and I was proud of the strong, independent and mature woman she became throughout this journey.

 

If you thought we would not be seeing Lance again, you were wrong. When he hears what happens to Alecia, our sexy rich man, steps in. Lance loves Alecia, and he steps up to the plate and offers her the support she needs through these very pressing times. Just like the first book, Lance made me swoon. Even though he knew Alecia loved Allan, he was there for her 100% of the way offering the friendship, support and loyalty Allan could not give.

 

Will Allan finally man up and be the man Alecia needs? Can he put his demons to bed? Will Lance finally win Alecia’s heart? Will Alecia finally get her HEA with a man that has claimed her heart? Ugggh and Jake, will we see the last of him?
Let me say right until the last page of this book did my heart rate finally slow down. This story had so many highs and lows I was not sure how everything would turn out. I do not want to give away the story but I was happy with the ending and understood what each character was going through. Rape, stalking and betrayal are things that can either make or break a relationship. I feel the author gave each character an ending they each deserved and shed light on their past so readers were able to connect with each of their struggles. Overall a good story.

Debbie's review

 

3.5 stars

 

 

Let me start off by saying I loved the plot of the story. Mob boss son trying to make his way into the family business and is the king of the private school he attends. Girl who was the prep school’s punching bag. One night when she was leaving her job she accidentally witnesses a murder. She now is the number one focus of the mob and the school god has to get close to her to find out exactly what she knows.

 

   “Holy shit, I just watched someone get whacked!”

 

The story line sounded intriguing and I was excited I was going to get a chance to read it. The book flows pretty well and you get a good idea of exactly the kind of torture Elle was put through on a daily basis. The chemistry between Nero and Elle was fantastic and loved all the secondary characters.

 

   “I thought Nero might have been crazy, but did you see Vincent? He has a multiple personality disorder that’s way worse than being bipolar.”

 

   “You need to stop questioning me. I’m the one with the dick, and the sooner you realize that, the easier this will be. Trust me baby, you’ll start to like it that way.”

 

Nero was intense and definitely all alpha but I felt that Nero was a little too unrealistic. He was suppose to be an 18 year old senior in high school, but the things he said and did was something that someone much older would say and do. If you are looking for a book with a hot demanding male and a unique plot than you might want to check this one out.

 

   “I was never supposed to fall in love with her, but that was the best mistake of my life. I will always love her. I have ever since I purposely bumped into her in the hallway.”

author bio

 

Hey! My name is Sarah Brianne and after living for twenty-two years the characters in my head told me enough was enough and I have finally put pen to paper (or is it finger to keyboard?) to tell their stories. Since I was a little girl I have watched every chick flick I could get my hands on, then when I became older I discovered a whole new world of romance novels. To me there is nothing better then a tale of true love and those are the stories that have inspired me to write. Like everything else in my life I have put my own spin on two lovers destined to be together.

Next to my books my prized possession are my two beautiful fur babies, Kalypso and Khaleesi. I know what you’re thinking, do you pack them in your purse? Yep, right next to my kindle.

How I Became Lotus Raine… The Porn Star by Erika Ashby Blog Tour & Giveaway

Synopsis
I refused to work my way up the company ladder by sexually favoring my sleazy boss. I was beginning to lose hope. Until one day, he surprised me with an assignment that would literally rock my world.
I never imagined my first assignment being my last. But Brent Nichols worked his way inside every way possible, unlocking something within me.
Becoming a porn star was never part of the plan. Neither was changing my name.
Everyone else knows me as Lucy Rogers, but you can call me Lotus Raine.

Josie's review
5 stars

 

Lotus Raine, porn star sounds sexy, dirty and well hmmm porn, what’s not to love, right? After reading the synopsis for this book I thought it was going to be about a porn star. !  I was anticipating that it was going to really only be about a lot of sex with little plot. I was dead wrong it was much more than that, we get so much more. This book was an enjoyable, sensual read that had me craving more Brent and Lucy. I could not put it down. The story line was very well established and written really well. While reading this book I was laughing, smiling, swooning and even found myself blushing from being embarrassed. This book is so unique and different from anything I’ve read this year. I really loved how the author presented this book to the reader. I was fooled by the title so don’t let that fool you too because you are going to want to read this book!  

 

Lucy, I loved this character; she is real, raw, down to earth, funny, bold and daring. She has the backing of her best friend Reggie, who gives her just the right amount of a nudge to get her out of her shell. Lucy Rogers is your standard girl working at Mitchell Publishing, doing research for authors and their books. She wanted to move her way up and work more on the field but her boss Mr. Callhan has a favorite and all the good assignments go to her, after all Rachel does special favors for Mr. Callhan (on your knees kind of favors). After getting upset when she gets passed up again for another assignment she ends up meeting Brent Nichols. As soon as Lucy sees Brent, her body parts start to tingle, after all he exudes sex appeal. Lucy does not know who he is but she knows is she needs to stay far away from him.

 

 

Lucy’s life is about to change. She gets assigned to live and follow a porn star for a week. Not exactly her dream job but it is a start.   Reggie and Lucy go to a club to celebrate, and low and behold mystery man is at the same club, coincidence or fate? Brent is not about to let the opportunity slip by, he sticks to Lucy side a lot, things get steamy and fast.

 

 

“We aren’t leaving the bathroom until you get off. Either by my finger or my d*ck. The choice is yours.”

“Seriously? Who talks like that?”

“Men who know what they’re doing.”

“I’m ready to get off now.”

“So wet. So wet and tight.”

 

 

Little did she know that meeting Brent would change her life in the best way possible? I loved how strong Lucy was. Yes, she took some crap but she also knew how to give it right back. The following Monday she walks into her assignment and she sees him, the mystery guy except he now has a name Brent Nichols, the porn star she will be living with for a week. Once more, Lucy is hit with an instantaneous attraction and connection to him.

 

 

The relationship between Brent and Lucy is amazing. There was no way I was not going to love this book. It is written in way where we get the past and present, but I found that it was easy to follow. You do not know when exactly she becomes Lotus Raine and honestly with the relationship between the two I could have cared less, I was fully invested.

 

Brent is swoon worthy, panty wetting, JJBO (JOSIE JODIE BOOK ORGASM) worthy. He takes the time a slowly show Lucy what she is missing and why given into her feelings is not wrong. He teaches her confidence. She shows her how sexy she truly is, awakens her true passion and stands by her every step of the way.

 

 

Brent is charming and thoughtful, has a dirty mouth, and hmm yeah he can f*ck (sorry but he can). The author also shows us a personal side to Brent that I loved, which makes him more vulnerable, real, and more lovable; and that although he is a porn star there is more to him. Brent always regarded his profession as a job and why should he not get paid well for it? However, he was so much more than that. To bring Lucy out of her shell, he did whatever he had to and together they worked well. I cannot and will not spoil things for readers, trust me there are some scenes that will blow you away and yes we do find out how Lucy becomes a porn star, but I think I will leave that to the readers to figure out!!!

 

 

“I need you to hurry and bring that sweet ass over here and ride my co*k, Lucy. I need that pu**y now.”

“I’m not really a pro at this.”

“Quit overthinking everything. And never compare yourself to the women in my career field. Just do what makes you feel good.”

“But what if it doesn’t feel good to you?”

“As long as my d*ck is buried in your pu**y, it’ll feel good. I can guarantee you that.”

 
I loved the interaction, friendship and understanding between Brent and Lucy, together they established a beautiful relationship.   Lucy and had a difficult upbringing but they did not let that define the life they have now. I highly recommend this book! It is quick, fun, and sexy. Please do not assume the title is all the book is about, there really is an exceptional story behind it. This book blew me away!

 

“Your lips are the only ones I want on me. I’m tired of faking it with these other women when it’s real with you.”

Excerpt
“We don’t have to do this tonight, but you’ll just be prolonging the inevitable if you decide against it.” His hand moved to my neck, cradling it as it fell back and his free hand trailed up my thigh, moving under the jean fabric of my shorts. “If you don’t want to go all the way, I won’t fight it, but let me at least give you a taste of what you’ll be missing out on.” He bent down, whispering into my ear, licking the edge of it as his finger slipped beneath the security of my cotton panties. Man was I thankful for my non-painted on shorts at that very moment. And so was my conscious pussy.
I bit my lip—hard—suppressing the moan. I internalized it by pressing my center closer to him, as his finger moved in and out of me deeper and faster.
“So wet. So wet and tight.” He murmured praises into my neck as he recklessly worked his finger in and out of me. I had never been touched as possessively and with such expertise as I had with him. In my mind, he had to be a professional fingerer. That had to be a profession, right?
Knocking at the door broke through my consciousness and caused my body to tense.
“Wait your fuckin’ turn,” he turned his head, yelling toward the door.
“We need to go,” I said hesitantly as he continued working his finger, adding his thumb to the mix as he rubbed my clit. My hands pressed into the top of the counter as I pushed myself further into the wall. I could feel it deep within me—signs of what was to come, forming and beginning to crackle throughout my body. Like an electrical current seeking full charge. Sparks here and there uniting, wanting to become one combustible unit.
“We aren’t leaving this bathroom until you get off. Either by my finger or my dick. The choice is yours.”
“Seriously?” I withered even more beneath him. “Who talks like that?” I had never been so turned on in all my life. It wasn’t just the way he was touching me, but that damn mouth of his could get me off by words alone.
“Men who know what they’re doing.” He looked up and gave me a sexy smirk.

Jen's review

5 stars

 

Wow, wow, wow, this book did not disappoint. I freaking loved this story. Jimmy and Lena’s story rocked my world in so many ways. Absolutely fantastic! Brooding, broken rock star who’s completely shut off meets feisty, sarcastic girl on a mission to get away from those who have hurt her. What we end up with is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a very long time. I mean it’s pretty bad when you go to bed only to be woken up because you are laughing in your sleep because the story is playing out in your dreams.

As much as I laughed there were many serious moments that tugged at my heart strings. OMG Jimmy! Can we all take a moment and just love on Jimmy. We all know from the previous books that Jimmy has had a substance abuse problem and we know that he was forced to take on an assistant to basically babysit him so he doesn’t have any relapses. Jimmy is so damaged from his past that he’s literally so broken he can’t see past all the bad in his life. He doesn’t think he deserves anything good. Well let’s just say when Lena comes into his life things for everyone involved get a whole lot more interesting.

 

The man could be more than an occasional arrogant dick, but Jimmy Ferris was strong and proud.

Whatever else he might be, Jimmy Ferris was special and complicated, beautiful and beastly, all rolled into one.

Verbally sparring with Jimmy was fast becoming more fun than I’d had with most other mean naked.

 

“I think the clashing pink and red Christmas tree make quite a statement. And the frolicking deer are kind of cool…”

“There’s even a threesome happening on the back.”

The look on Jimmy’s poor face was hilarious. And the way he handled the shirt like it was something similar to dog shit, his mouth drawn wide and distaste just made it all the better.

“How’s your face and what the fuck are you wearing?” “Ask Lena,” Jimmy bit out. “I can’t. Your shirts so ugly it made her cry.”

 

 

The banter, the sarcasm the back and forth between Lena and Jimmy will have you laughing out loud. I loved how easy it flowed out of their mouths. I mean as you read you can sense that the humor is mostly to disguise what they are truly feeling but my god it was funny. We get to learn about Jimmy’s demons, how and why Lena becomes Jimmy’s assistant, What has her avoiding her family and why Jimmy ended up on road to drug and alcohol addictions. Besides the humor we also get to witness all the pain, suffering and ultimately healing that Jimmy and Lena go through.  

 

“it was like, he didn’t’ feel like he deserved success, so the more it came his way, the faster he ran.”

 

“Don’t break his heart, Lena. Fuck, he barely even knows he has one, but he does. And it’s actually a really good one. Just give him a chance to figure out what to do with it, please?”

 

As with the previous stories we get to see all other characters we fell in love with throughout this series. We get to see what’s been going on with all them since Play. They are all still as funny and crazy as ever. Kylie Scott has come out of the gates swinging with Jimmy and Lena’s story. From start to finish every single page was written with so much thought and integrity to all the characters both new and old.   This story is without a doubt my favourite one in the series so far. I wouldn’t recommend you reading this as a standalone because honestly you’ll get spoilers of the other characters if you do.   I can’t wait for the next book so I can see how everyone is doing. I can’t wait to see more of Jimmy because honest to god this boy truly stole my heart. This series is absolutely fantastic and you won’t be disappointed that you picked it up and experienced all the boys of Stage Dive.

Excerpt:

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”

“Nope.”

“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.

“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”

Can’t find it anywhere…”

“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”

“Sure you haven’t seen it?”

“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.

I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.

He frowned. “No.”

“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like
some creepy perv?”

“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.

“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.

“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”

Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”

“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”

“I’m not!”

Laura Ward’s debut novel “Not Yet”

 

Title: Not Yet
Author: Laura Ward
Genre: New Adult / Contemporary Romance

Expected Release: July 28th, 2014

Emma Harris is learning that life is just a series of lessons.
Lesson #1: Nothing goes the way you plan.
Lesson #2: You can’t trust men. Especially not the pretty ones.
Lesson #3: Turns out, appearances are almost always deceiving.
Emma thinks she has life all figured out, and what she knows isn’t good. For years, she’s put her big sister, who was born with Down syndrome, first. Now Emma’s ready to start her own life, but fate has other plans. To do the right thing for the sister she loves, Emma’s dreams will just have to wait.
She doesn’t plan on meeting Landon — a rich, flirtatious jock, who never has to wait for anything. Not for attention, not for money, and certainly not for girls. Meeting Emma marks the first time in his life that he’s had to fight for something. And Landon doesn’t know how to lose.
Emma has no interest in wasting her summer with a superficial guy like Landon. But very soon she realizes she is wrong about him. The question is, can she trust him? Or will he let her down like every other guy in her life? But most importantly, can Emma trust herself enough to live the life she’s always dreamed of?
Life has a way of sneaking in the most important lessons when you aren’t looking. And once the heart gets involved, that’s when the real learning begins.

(Love at First Date, Book #1)
Ellen may not believe in storybook love, but it’s about to rewrite her life. . . .

Excerpt from Love at First Date (Better Date than Never, Book #1)

Holding Rachel’s bright yellow dishtowel under Chester’s saliva-dripping mouth, I panicked at the morphed sounds he was making. “Hang in there, dude.”

I shifted him in my arms then slammed on the metal bell some more. “Does anyone work here?”

“Can I help?” A male voice came from behind me.

“Yes, this dog got into my purse and—” I paused mid-sentence as my gaze met dark gray eyes that sent a bolt of adrenaline through me. My heart flipped in my chest. Not an appropriate reaction when Rach’s dog could be dying. “I-I think he ate something toxic. Maybe my lip-gloss? Are you the vet? Can you give him that charcoal stuff to make him barf it up?”

He studied Chester’s half-open mouth. “Try setting him down. I’ll take a look.”

“Thanks.” I knelt, still holding the towel under his mouth—because, ew, slobber all over the place.

The vet dropped to his knees next to Chester and pried his little jaw open.

Hech! Hech!

As he examined the dog’s throat, I couldn’t help checking him out. There was something going on behind those dark eyes that had me dying to learn everything about him. Where he was from, what made him tick, what he looked for in a girl . . .

My pulse slammed into overdrive.

Weird that the vet was wearing sweats, though. Maybe he’d finished with his last patient and was going for a run? Definitely looked like a guy who worked out regularly. Yeah, that’s what I should be thinking about while my friend’s dog was gagging for his life. What was wrong with me? Focus, Ellen. “Can you save him?”

Everyone has secrets. No one has secrets like Watts.
Catherine Kolb has found the perfect diversion from her life of nearly complete seclusion: a virtually anonymous correspondence with a man she knows only as “Watts.” Intelligent, intriguing, and with an insatiable appetite for sex, his words begin to draw her out of her closely guarded world.
Watts insists on privacy. He has no choice. In the wrong hands, his secrets could get people killed.
Including him.
And Catherine.
But curiosity and lust prove stronger than reason and safety. A planned one-time encounter sets into motion a series of events that bring Catherine and Watts to the edge of ecstasy and the brink of peril.

Due to mature themes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

Now Catherine must decide: with all that she’s been through in her life, can she risk suffering the heartache she could be forced to endure if she stays with Watts?
Watts:
I’ve had to do some unspeakable things in my life. Some might even consider me a bad guy.
My secrets can get people hurt, even killed. For that reason, I’ve never let anyone get close to me.
Until Catherine.
Her life of isolation so closely mirrors mine that I feel inextricably bound to her.

His decision will force them to face one of life’s ugliest truths: You can lose your one true love as quickly and unexpectedly as you find it.

Excerpt
From Privacy Code (Shatterproof #1)

“What made you change your mind about meeting me?”

She hesitated for a second before saying, “I was curious.”

I grinned. “Perfect reason. You should always give in to your curiosities, especially the forbidden ones.”

I stepped closer to her, placing my hands on the wall just over her shoulders, caging her in, pressing her up against the wall. I dipped my head and barely touched my lips to hers, waiting to see what she would do. As I expected, her tongue parted her lips ever so slightly as though trying to wet them for a kiss.

I let my tongue graze along Catherine’s, then pressed my lips firmly to hers. My tongue dove into her mouth. She opened wider, willingly taking it. She tasted like wine and mint.

A short gasp escaped from her mouth as my hand pulled her dress up, my fingers pressing into the soft, smooth flesh of her thigh.

My cock twitched in my pants. I heard my heartbeat in my ears. Felt my face getting warmer by the second.

I moved down to her neck, tasting her skin and feeling her head drop to my shoulder.

I was finding myself lost in the sensory blur that was Catherine. Her scent, how her flesh felt when I applied pressure with my hands, how she tasted, how I could feel her pulse rapidly pounding against my lips when I kissed her neck.

I slipped one finger under the front of her strapless dress, slowly pulling it down to expose her. I looked down and watched as the fabric slid over the slope of the top of her breast.

With one finger, I traced the outer edge of her bra, teasing her flesh.

“When I said you were going to get the fucking of a lifetime, did you think those were just words?”

She looked up from what my finger was doing and blinked. “I want to believe you.”

She had some doubt. Excellent. “Are you challenging me, Catherine?”

She bit her lower lip. “Maybe.”

I tilted my head and grinned. “Not a good idea.”

Jen's review

 

4 stars

*If you haven’t read Saving Liam then you need to read it before you read this one to fully understand what is going on.*

 

D.P. Denman brings us the continuation of Justin and Liam’s story. Skin Deep really shows us how deeply Liam’s past has affected him. This man is still as broken as ever, he’s damaged and he knows it. He believes he deserves everything that has happened to him because in his eyes he’s nothing but an ex porn star, a piece of trash that deserves to be thrown away. However, we get to see how much Justin’s patience and love have helped him to try and rebuild his life piece by piece. He has a very difficult road ahead of him. When things start to settle down and it’s looking like Liam is healing from his horrific past something happens that brings all his fears and insecurities to the forefront. This causes a backward slide in the progress that Justin has tirelessly and patiently worked on with Liam. It felt like for every 2 steps Liam took towards a happier life something would trigger all the bad he lived through and brought him 3 steps back.  

 

Liam is desperately trying to change his life, to make it better but at the same time he’s very guarded and afraid. He doesn’t trust anyone except for Justin. Even though Justin makes him feel safe and loved he still doesn’t completely have his walls down. He has rules when it comes to touching which makes their sex life for the most part very unconventional. At least in my eyes. Liam has major boundaries Justin has to work around but he’s happy enough with what he gets as long as he is with Liam.

 

“He knew how to be patient but he wasn’t a saint.”

 

Let’s be honest here, Justin is nothing less than a saint. He always puts Liam ahead of himself. Never complains about being denied or having to settle for the smallest pleasures. I mean seriously at times I was sitting here thinking this man deserves so much more than he’s getting. I know he doesn’t want to push Liam because that would ultimately force him back to a time where he’d be reliving the nightmare of all he’s been through, but how much can one person take?

 

 

Throughout this story my love for Justin was only solidified and as much as I felt bad for Liam I wished we could have seen him heal a lot more than we did. His new job brings out a different side to him, he has more confidence but at the same time he’s still the same old broken kid we met in Saving Liam. I think I almost felt worse for Justin then I did for Liam in this one because his love for Liam is so deep. I just wanted Liam to be able to give himself completely to Justin. Don’t get me wrong I completely understand why Liam can’t do certain things I just hoped over time he’d really believes in himself more. I wanted him to really see that he deserves more than he thinks he does. That he can have a really healthy relationship especially with Justin because that man is nothing short of perfection.

 

I’m not sure if we are going to be getting a 3rd installment to their story but I really hope we do. I really love how we get to see how deeply Liam’s past has cut him to the core and how it seriously affects this thought process and interactions with the world. I would love to see Liam finally put all his demons to rest. He’s getting there but he isn’t quite there. I’d love to see this man who has been put through hell finally have the proper HEA he deserves.

Excerpt
    Someone was watching him. The sensation crawled across Liam’s shoulders like a spider, making him twitch. He didn’t bother turning around. Every time it happened, he always found the same eyes and glaring back hadn’t done any good so far. He hung his overcoat in his narrow locker in the employee lounge and pretended not to notice.
    He didn’t know what to make of the restaurant’s newest server but Eric got on his nerves. The guy was average in build, height, and looks but there was something troubling in the way he stared. The expression that came close to a leer was altogether annoying. He’d seen that look before in other equally annoying men and tried not to think about it, pushing the irritation and the memory away. He had a job to do and he wasn’t going to let Eric get to him.
    Liam checked his hair in the small mirror tacked to the inside of the locker door as the other employees trickled out of the room to start their shifts. He pushed the locker closed to join them and spun the combination lock determined to pretend Eric was nothing but a piece of furniture. He didn’t intend to stick around for a conversation.
    “Your name’s Liam, right?” Eric asked from the opposite side of the room as the last co-worker disappeared into the hall.
    Apparently, he was too late. “Yes.”
    “Should I call you that or do you prefer ‘Angel’?”
    The name slapped his heart into a gallop and he jerked his gaze to Eric. No one had called him Angel for over six months. He hadn’t missed it.
    “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” He swallowed, his voice an almost breathless quiver that didn’t sound convincing even to him.
    “Sure you do.” Eric smiled and opened his locker. “You’re that hot kid on the porn site. I’ve been a fan for a long time. It’s nice to finally meet you.”
    His palms were slick with sweat as he tried to pretend he really didn’t have any idea what Eric was talking about, stuffing them in the pockets of his pants to hide the trembling.
    “That’s not me.”
    “I have to admit, you look smaller on the screen but I guess they wanted it that way.” Eric ignored the denial.
    “What do you want?” He glared at him fed up with the conversation.
    “Nothing at the moment, though I wouldn’t mind hooking up later if you have the time.”
    “I’m seeing someone.”
    “So?” Eric shrugged and hung up his coat. “I’m not talking about a date, just a hook up. Nobody has to know. Consider me a dress rehearsal for the next video. You’re still doing those, right? I’d hate to think you gave that up to work here.”
    “I’m not interested.” He ignored the comment.
    He wasn’t going to get into a discussion about his non-existent porn career with a guy who only liked him for his ass. He knew the type. They never listened.
    “What?” Eric glanced his direction. “You don’t do it for free?”
    “I don’t know what you’re talking about and even if I did I’m not interested.” He said again with enough conviction to sound believable.
    Eric raked him with a lustful stare that made him shiver.
    “Yes, you do. I’d know those pretty eyes anywhere…and that fuckable mouth. It’s you so why don’t you drop the act, Angel.”
    “Don’t call me that.”
    “Fine…Liam.” Eric pushed his locker closed and stepped closer to stuff a piece of paper between two of the buttons on Liam’s dress shirt before striding toward the door. “That’s my number. Call me.”
    He pulled the paper right back out, crumpled it in his fist, and dropped it in the trash, anger and terror whipping through him hard enough to make him shudder. He dragged in a couple of breaths trying to calm the fearful thundering of his heart.
    He wasn’t that person anymore. He’d left that nightmare behind in an empty apartment across town. It was supposed to be over and he wasn’t sure which was more terrifying: that Eric was going to keep propositioning him or that he’d tell the rest of the staff his secret. He didn’t think he could take working with people who’d seen what he’d done or what all those men had done to him.
    It took him three tries to get his locker back open, his hands trembling too much to be precise with the dial. He fumbled his cell phone out of the pocket of his coat and called Justin. He wasn’t going to tell him the whole sordid story over the phone, not when he had to be out on the restaurant floor in two minutes but he could at least hear his voice.
