“Trouble With The Law” by Becky McGraw (#11 Texas Trouble Series)


beckymCriminal defense attorney Veronica Winters always wondered what it would be like with sexy former detective Trace Rooks. Even though he’s an ex-convict now, because of her, she still wonders. Ronnie has always felt damned guilty for recommending a plea deal that sent an innocent man to jail. When she finds out he’s back in jail and a friend asks her to question him about the situation, Ronnie thinks she might finally have the opportunity to set things right with him. 

At the jail though, she finds a changed man she almost doesn’t recognize. The scars on the outside are nothing compared to the scars he bears inside. Instead of the charming, easy going man she represented four years prior, his attitude now is as hard as his body. But she finds out the new, edgier Trace Rooks turns her on even more than the man she knew before. 

Trace Rooks, would love nothing better than seeing the Shark Lady get her due for sending him to prison unjustly. He would make sure Ronnie Winters eventually got hers, but at the moment, he had other priorities. Like taking down his corrupt father. The man who had paid off the woman touted to be the best criminal defense attorney in the state to help send him to prison. 

When Ronnie shows up at the jail asking questions, Trace isn’t giving her anything except a hard time. He believes she’s there on his father’s behalf again, and there is no way in hell he is falling for her lines again. Trace was a man that learned for his mistakes, and trusting Ronnie Winters had been the biggest of his life. 

But when Ronnie doesn’t get the answers she wants from him, she starts digging around on her own. Trace knows that can get him killed or sent back to prison again. He decides that the best thing he can do is heed his grandfather’s advice to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. He isn’t sure which camp Ronnie Winters falls into yet, but he’s going to keep her close until he figures it out. 

Maybe he could get the answers he’d been looking for the last three years. If not, he could at least get his pound of flesh from the mouthy, leggy redhead every man in Texas was afraid of. Trace wasn’t afraid of Ronnie Winters, but he quickly finds out he isn’t immune to her either. When that leads to thinking he might just have misjudged the beautiful redhead before, and maybe there was more to her than met the eye, Trace knows he’s in deep trouble. Continue reading

Skye Jordan/Joan Swan(Author)

You may or may not know this, but Skye Jordan is the pseudonym for USA Today and New York Times, Best Selling Author, Joan Swan.  Skye Jordan is the name she writes her “steamier” books under and we’re SO thankful she does!!

“Reckless” is the first book in her “Renegades” series as Skye Jordan. The second book, “Rebel”, which I’m dying to read, will be released in the Fall of 2013.

As Joan swan, she is the author of the “Phoenix Rising” series and the “Covert Affairs” series .  She’s also co-author of the New York Times Best Seller and the last winner of WHAT’S HOT, “Wicked Firsts”.  She collaborated with fellow authors, Alexandra Ivy, Elisabeth Naughton, Laura Wright, Katie Reus and Cynthia Eden.  Joan’s story in the “Wicked Firsts” anthology, is “First Temptation”. It is book 1.5 in her “Covert Affairs” series. “Intimate Enemies” is book 1 and book 2 will be released in late 2013.

She currently has three books out in her “Phoenix Rising” Series, “Fever”, “Blaze” and “Rush”.  I have yet to read these books, but they are on my TBR list and if “Reckless” is ANY indication of what an amazing author she is, then I’m in for a treat.

If you haven’t read “Reckless” yet, I HIGHLY recommend it.  It has become one of my absolute favorite books ever.  In my review I call Skye Jordan/Joan Swan the “Michelangelo of Erotica”, because she paints the most amazing picture with her words. It has the perfect amount of naughtiness to feed the bad girl in us and the perfect amount of class to let the good girl in us think we’re not doing anything wrong. Who are we kidding though right? Soon as a good girl reads about Jax, she wants to do so many bad things to him that we’ll forever be begging for redemption. lol  But oooh what a way to sin. Yummy!!

“RECKLESS” by Skye Jordan


RecklessA couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life.

Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he’s given up acting. Finding a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping stone to success is virtually impossible, so when the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a chance at a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more. Lots more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle. And if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the rest. Continue reading

Wicked Firsts by Elisabeth Naughton, Alexandra Ivy, Cynthia Eden, Laura Wright, Katie Reus and Joan Swan


Wicked-Covers-PROMO-875x1024

“Wicked Firsts” has 6 stories by 6 AMAZING authors!  It is impossible for me to name a favorite story in this bundle. They’re all equally kick ass!  Each had me falling in love with the men and each had me wishing I was the women.  I’m a huge fan of alpha males and alpha women.  I honestly don’t care for weak women in books. They can play the damsel in distress, but I need to see they’re strong too.  Scarlett O’hara is the prime example of that and those are the types of heroines I look for in books.  Soft and feminine yet strong enough to keep their Alpha men in line and to be equals.  That’s why I love all of these authors and stories.  They represent all of that and more.  To do each story justice, I’ll do mini reviews on each, in the order they are in the bundle.
