Devilish fun on this demon summoning ride

His Soul DesireHis Soul Desire by Casey Cameron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cracking good spooky (not really but hey, it’s a Halloween release) romance with a devilish sense of humour and a sweet happy ever after.

I enjoyed watching Gideon fall for the human who’d mistakenly summoned him and proved to be a bit of a tough nut to crack. Sean was just your every day nice guy, drifting a bit but generally doing his best to get by without stepping on anyone’s toes.

Their road trip to try and break the demonic bond is filled with unlikely acts of kindness, a seriously pissed off superior, a bit of a bad witch and a tiny smattering of feelings.

Blurb

O’Malley Ramsey, math aficionado, grew up next door to Garrison Rook, All-American athlete. While O’Malley dreamed of numbers and kissing Garrison, Garrison’s tastes ran to home runs and hot chicks. During a family celebration the night before both young men were heading off for college, O’Malley joyously discovers that Garrison isn’t quite as straight as the star athlete had been pretending to be. Vows to return to each other quickly followed a few clumsy kisses in the old treehouse in the Rook’s backyard.


O’Malley came home to Garrison. Garrison never returned to O’Malley.

Four years later, the two ex-friends meet up at a summer camp where O’Malley is serving as a counselor. Garrison is desperate to make things right with his childhood friend, but can O’Malley, still nursing the pain and mistrust of Garrison’s betrayal, ever forgive or love Garrison again?

Epic adventures on the High Seas! This historical has the lot

Kidnapped by the PirateKidnapped by the Pirate by Keira Andrews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a britches ripper of the highest calibre, packed with everything you’d expect to find in this genre – devilish pirates who are too sexy to be resisted, an innocent young scamp just waiting to lure our anti-hero down the path of emotional reawakening, daring adventures and over the top villains and a setting which is perfectly researched.

I’m not going to lie, the Golden Age of piracy fascinates me, as the British Empire extended her reach across the Caribbean and used privateers to plunder their rival Spanish and Dutch competitors as they fought for domination of both the High Seas and the islands within it.

And within that world were those who skirted the fine line between privateering and piracy, who instilled fear into the hearts of the merchants and made the shipping lanes a dangerous place to travel.

The Sea Hawk is one such man and his character is perfectly drawn from those like Henry Morgan, Calico Jack Rackham or the Robin Hood of piracy, Black Sam Bellamy, known for his compassionate treatment and mercy towards those he captured.

However, he’s unable to resist the innocence of young Nathaniel, being sent out to a fading colony to try and prop up his father’s disastrous rule by marrying a rich heiress. But Nathaniel longs for the love of a man and he’s helpless when faced by all th ed formidable power of Hawk.

After plenty of to-ing and fro-ing, some witty bantering, and a whole load of protesting, the two finally give in to the lust building between them and it’s glorious.

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Keira Andrews and this book is just one of the many reasons why. It’s a joyful romp of a tale with a believable cast and crew of historical accuracy and some steamy hot sex leading into a glorious HEA.

Max wraps up the Sierra View series with a cute romance

Code White (The Sierra View #4)Code White by Max Walker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a nice read with a little bit of angsty and a little bit of drama and two MCs who have an instant connection which develops into something stronger.

As with all of Max’s romances, there’s a lot of dialogue, a steamy interlude or two (or more), a sudden plot twist which comes from left field and a nicely tied up ending that brings everything together.

Loved this fake boyfriend romance

The Shipwreck (Lavender Shores Book 4)The Shipwreck by Rosalind Abel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m not sure I quite buy into part of what happens at the end of this book but up to that point it was absolutely heading for my favourite in the series.

This is a wonderful read, it’s got a lot of humour, a lot of good sex, a little bit of angst, some character development and a wonderfully brilliant grovel.

Lamont is a real sweetie, he’s quiet and a bit neurotic and, at the age of 45, mostly given up on love finding him outside of the hetero romance novels he writes under a female pseudonym.

But fate has a funny little habit of putting things in the path of people when they least expect it and such is the case here when he bumps into cover model Tyler in a bar during a convention.

Lamont and Tyler hit it off and a plan is hatched for him to visit Lavender Shores for Andrew and Joel’s baby shower and pose as Lamont’s boyfriend.

Of course, nothing ever goes to plan and as they spend more time together it becomes clear it’s not just pretend. Lamont was honest about sex always needing to have an emotional connection for him in the past and how he’d been burned so many times by people just wanting the physical.

Watching him fall for Tyler but not know whether he was still playing a role was a little bit heart breaking but it made the joy all the more sweeter when his feelings were returned.

Tyler’s carrying his own baggage too and the author never loses sight of that, he’s worried about losing himself and letting go from his only sex no emotions state of living.

There’s a hiccup along the way but some good groveling and a lay it bare letter helps bridge the gap and leads into a truly spectacular make up sex session involving a pool table.

Now bring on book five and finally Connor and Micah’s ‘forbidden’ romance!

Beautifully twisted

Clipped (The Clipped Saga, #1)Clipped by Devon McCormack

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As there’s a shiny new cover I figured it was time for a re-read and an actual review this time round.

This is one of my favourites of all Devon’s books because it makes you think. Yes there’s the usual amount of insane sex (someone give them some lube please 😉 ) but it’s not what’s driving the narrative.

This isn’t a love story, although there is definitely love in it, but a “what if?” What if the Devil wasn’t the bad guy but instead he’d left his Almighty lover because he was a cruel tyrant incapable of allowing free will? What if God was the one you should be worried about and he was planning the Armageddon himself?

In Clipped, angels and demons are real but they go by different names and everyone is searching for the Christ child who is going to destroy the world.

This book is a headrush which invites you to challenge all Christian traditions and treat them as only one possible side to the story and I love it.

Subversive, sexy, scary, sacrilegious, scandalous and a whole load of other words begging with s like seductive and sadistic, don’t look for hearts and flowers here.
