Mia is a respected psychologist with the Company—an interplanetary conglomerate—and a master at using virtual technology to penetrate the criminal mind. No one knows about her sex-slave past, or about the dark desires she tries to ignore. When she’s given Dylan Benjamin’s case and told to break him down, something about the man, something primal, reaches deep inside her and strokes the taboo lust she’s worked so hard to hide.

Dylan just wanted revenge against the Company. He never expected to get caught stealing, or to be pitted against Mia in a virtual world. But he recognizes the darkness lurking in her and he’ll do anything to draw it out, to prove they’re kindred spirits. Only he can give Mia what she needs—not soft and gentle but hard and fast. No roses or pretty words—just chains and rough, raw pleasure.

I had a few problems with this novella since the begin, and that’s weird because this is a erotica and there’s bound to be at least some things I could like. I do love a good alien book, but this was a bit disappointing, because I couldn’t understand the connecting between Dylan and Mia. He sounded like a very smart and intelligent thief, but I just don’t understand his reasons to just get caught.
 
And why was so important to him that she could understand him and release her fears. I think if this book was a full novel I would DNF, but because his entire length was 69 pages I decided to finish it.

Summary

Ghosts harass and annoy Tess to save their souls. Sometimes she helps them. Other times she ignores them. But one ghost will give her no choice. Kipp, a former cop with the Memphis Police Department, will stop at nothing to gain her help, including using his ghostly charms to seduce her.

Tess must help solve the five-year-old cold case of Hannah Reid’s disappearance, because solving the case will save Kipp. But a bigger problem presents itself. Tess is falling in love with a ghost. Now she must decide. Keep Kipp forever, or find the killer.

My Thoughts

I found the summary for this book really different and after reading a review in Smitten With Reading, I decided to read it and discover all about Tess world. Ghosts are not usually my favorites paranormal creatures, because you run away from something that can teletransport and is already death, so they are pretty dangerous.

 

I liked Tess personality and how she tried to have a normal life and still help those lost ghost, because can you imagine being followed 24/7 and also have to work on a regular basis. Must be really difficult and after I read a date going wrong I can totally understand why sometimes she just wants some time for herself.

 

The book start with Tess running late and trying to get to work otherwise her boss will make her life miserable. She work as an event manager assistant, nothing even remotely close to ghosts, but they always find her, because of her aura. This day was when Kipp started following her.

 

But she didn’t acknowledge him and he got creative during the day. At night she had a date and he started saying bad works that only she could her it and made her totally hot and bothered. Bottom line, he got her attention and she went home alone.

 

Kipp was a detective and was killed following a lead in a cold case and now he’s trying to make Tess help him discover who the killer is. But there are two problems: 1. Tess doesn’t want to talk with anyone about her gifts, because they usually think she’s crazy and 2. The killer is most likely a cop.

 

So we followed Tess proving to a bunch of cops that she actually was talking with Kipp and I found these scenes hilarious, because the questions were so strange. The investigation was a little different then what I expected because they had to hide and discover things different ways. Also the host of the girl killed helped a lot.

 

But they most strange part for me was the sex, because he can’t touch her, and let’s face it is a little awkward not to kiss him and still act like a boyfriend. But I liked the investigation and the detectives were really funny to have around. They’re all friends and talk dirty with each other. Overall I liked the book.

Book Blurb: 

Wild Irish, Book One

Monday’s child is fair of face . . .

After the death of her mother years prior, Keira Collins became a surrogate parent to her six younger brothers and sisters, her own dreams put on hold. At twenty-seven, she’s finally pursuing a college degree. Between classes, working at the family pub and still tending to siblings, she’s no time for romance. So why is she spending all her rare free time fantasizing about hot Professor Wallace bending her over his desk?

Will Wallace recognizes Keira’s unfulfilled desires, her habit of hiding her beauty, her obsessive need to command every aspect of her life. But Will has needs of his own-and they run far darker than Keira’s. As he initiates her into his lifestyle, offering sweet punishments and sweeter rewards, Will’s sexual authority slowly strips away some of her precious control. The one thing Keira’s not ready to relinquish . . .

My Thoughts:

I first read a review for this book on Smitten with Reading and Christi was so I’m love with this series that I decided it was a good review to go on the huge wishlist. But one day I discovered that Come Monday was free on All Romances and purchased the free copy to read some day.

Since March in the States is celebrated Saint Patrick’s day, this book sounded like the perfect read. On the very first day of the month I started, finished and feel in love with Collins family.

This series is about seven siblings from an Irish family and they all live together and work on the family pub and restaurant. The first book is for Kiera and the oldest daughter. Their mother died ten years ago and Kiera was finishing high school and since her mother’s gone she took care of all the family.

When she turned 25 and her family, she decided to go back to study and started college and that’s how she meet Professor Willian Wallace. One semester he’s teaching her creative writing and she started to have very creative and erotic dreams with dear professor.

But Will is also very interested in his student, the only problem for him at least is that in a relationship he’s a Dom and she doesn’t look like someone familiar to the BDSM world.

I love some BDSM books, this is not my first and definily will not be the least. Mari Carr wrote about their sexual encounter in a very gentle way. He’s caring and most of all he knows that this is her first time in his world. So they way he explained and did things was perfect and real for us. Don’t think all the series is about BDSM but from their publisher I think is expected more than a simple doggie style.

Loved the family and how protective her brothers are. Will definily pick the next books in this series.
