More fabulous adventures with the Shadow Elite team

61989827._SY475_Kairo’s Billionaire by Jocelynn Drake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

More fabulous adventures with the Shadow Elite team

Bonus GLove and Justin appearances just added to the usual excellent mix of humour, action and dodgy deed doing.

I’ve been enjoying this series from Jocelynn very much and seeing the quiet Tech guru Kairo Jones get bowled over by a sift, cinnamon bun billionaire was a treat!

I loved Isidore and his sister Athena, I loved the Greek setting and I loved seeing all the gang together taking the michael out of each other as they did their usual secret mercenary sneaks to find out who kept kidnapping Issie.

While the feels might have caught quickly, there’s some time given to allow Kairo and Isidore to learn more about each other and want to take things further.

A heightened sense of fear and adrenaline-packed action tends to help speed things along the romance path quite quickly!

Loved the banter, loved the way they were each determined to put themselves in harms way for the other and loved how they talked about everything.

Also the set up for Ed’s book is fascinating so I’m very much looking forward to reading that.

Mother Parker Cover


Divorced. Beaten down. A failure. Until a ray of sunshine comes into my life…

People call me Officer Grumpypants, but wouldn’t you be if life kept knocking you down?

My life is an endless sh*t list that I can’t even begin to unravel.

It all started when my parents died.

It continued when I was forced to sell my house.

And it all came to an epic conclusion when my wife walked out on me.

What I need is to get my mind in order and my life back on track.

So when my old commander offers me a job in Mayberry Holm, I grab the opportunity by the balls.

I’m ready to put my head down and my hands to work.

What I wasn’t planning though was becoming pet food for crows by this infuriating little man who throws seeds at my face.

Or being hired to help said man with his new store.

Or having to protect him from a bunch of criminals that prey on his softness and sweetness.

Even though he drives me insane, I can’t stop thinking of him. And even though he’s annoyingly cheerful, I can’t help but smile around him.

Or fantasize about him doing… naughty things to me.

What the hell is happening to me? Am I falling for the young, bubbly, pink-haired man? And is it too late to stop it?

Welcome to Mayberry Holm, a small island in the Atlantic full of crime, secrets and happily-ever-afters, and the ex-Navy SEALs that come to deal with them all.

“All right, Mr. Dorothy, calm down,” he said.

Despite my snap, he didn’t look offended.

“Dorothy? Why Dorothy? This isn’t Oz, sweetheart,” I said.

Did I really need to add the sweetheart to my reply?

No. No, I didn’t. And yet I had, for no reason whatsoever.

“I’m not talking about Dorothy from Oz. I’m talking about Dorothy Zbornak. The grumpiest of the Golden Girls.”

Golden…Golden Girls?

Was he even alive when The Golden Girls was on?

And how was that relevant?

And most importantly, why would he call me by one of their names?

“Dorothy?” I grunted. “And if I’m Dorothy, who the hell are you? Blanche?”

Hwan was definitely a Blanche. He looked effortlessly flawless. Never mind the constant smile on his face, which I was pretty sure was flirting, but I could be wrong.

Not to say anything of the fact he was completely irresistible. Or must be. I assumed. I wouldn’t know, of course. I wasn’t gay.

But if the men he dated felt even an inkling of the…frustration I felt around him, then he must be irresistible.

“Bla—Bitch, I’m Rose, and I own it. Now finish that tea, princess,” he said.

I frowned.

Had he really just called me princess?

And had he really just snapped at me?

He raised an eyebrow and a hint of a smirk before he spoke again.

“That ice is going to melt and ruin your drink. So…hurry up, Mr. Dorothy.”

First, he calls me princess, and now he keeps calling me Dorothy? Who the hell did he think he was?

I started shaking the drink, and naturally, since I was trying to prove a point, the whole thing exploded on me.

“For fuck’s sake!” I shouted, and was it my imagination, or did Hwan jump at my outburst?

“It’s okay. That’s fine. It happens to everyone their first time.”

And there he was with his virgin hints again.

Was he trying to get a rise out of me?

Well, if he was, I was just serving it to him on a platter.

Mike Bravo Ops Rogue Ebook



I remember the first time I met Dylan Rodriguez. It was one sweaty encounter I’ll never forget.

The second time we met, he arrested me. I can still see the hot scowl on his beautiful face as he slapped handcuffs on me and realized I was … me.

Dylan’s main goal in life is to forget he ever met me. My goal is to make him mine.

Turns out, I’m better at this game than he is.


When my law enforcement career falls to pieces in front of my own eyes, I don’t know who I can trust.

I have nowhere to go. No one to turn to.

Asking Trav for help is a last resort, but I’m desperate.

If he can’t get me out of this mess, I may as well turn myself over to the guys hunting me down.

I’m not sure which will be more difficult: protecting my life or my heart.

Because when it comes to love, my heart wants what my brain doesn’t. It wants Travis West.
