I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Summary:

After being unceremoniously dumped by her long-time boyfriend, Stacy Washington hits one of the hottest clubs in town with her best friend, Nina. Stacy decides it’s time to shed her good girl persona by letting go of her inhibitions. Relationships are trouble; casual sex is simple.

When she sees sexy bartender, Evan, she’s instantly intrigued by his dark, good looks and his killer smile. Before she has a chance to get to know him better, an equally sexy prospect comes her way and this one is ready to play. Justin’s not shy about telling Stacy exactly what he wants. She plans to have her way with both him and Evan until she finds out they’re close friends. This could be awkward or this could be the most exhilarating experience of Stacy’s life. She decides to take the plunge by coming between friends–in more ways than one.

Review:

This was a novella, but I found it completely strange to end with a cliffhanger. Still don’t understand why they couldn’t just make a novel  with the entire story. There’s not a lot waiting to happen with these three. I liked Stacy and the way she took control of her love life and decided to change. But she’s too insecure to actually participate in a menage relationship with these tow guys, because for me Justin and Evan are a bit on the controlling side and this could become a bad situation way too fast.

I liked Nina and she was a great friend to Stacy, always helping her see the big picture and trying to put some different thoughts on the line, their conversations are nice and without judgment. I liked Nina and it would be nice to read a book with her finding love and a great guy.

The story was nice and the guys were a good thing, but Stacy needs to learn more about life and her positions. I think this time apart is going to help her a lot.

Paranormal Review: Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

Desire Unchained (Demonica, #2)

Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.

Advice:

Due to its strong sexual content, this novel is recommended for readers older than 18.

I like this series but for some reason I always take to long to actually finish one book, nothing wrong there but it’s a reality for me. The best part for me is the world. So different and there are so many characters with feeding habits and dangerous points. I usually think the couple is on the sidelines from the big picture. This time we got more from the couple, but the fight also got more closer to them.
 
Shade we met on the previous book and he’s a seminus demon with a curse, strange right, but completely understandable, because we all know these demons need sex and Shade messed with the wrong female, because her husband decided to made a statement and now Shade can’t fall in love.
 
Runa we never met, but she was talked about on the previous book, but the problem with her was just humanity, because demons can’t mate with humans, but we also realized really fast that she was bitten by a werewolf and now one a month she howls to the moon. So she evolved and now is more than just a human, but Shade still has the curse problem, so mating between these tow was completely off question,until the sicko brother decided to play with people emotions. I liked this couple and they are so in love, it’s actually really cute.
 
I got to say these Seminus are really crazy without a female, I fear for Wraith after the way this book ended.

Paranormal Romance Review: Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione

Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1)

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unshakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . .

I have this series on my TBR for ages now and finally decided to sit and read the first book, and I loved the action, romance, plot and different reality. It’s really cool to see demons and humans trying to get along and I loved this couple. Plus there’s a demon hospital, how cool is that?
Okay let’s start over and talk about the good stuff. Eidolon is a type of succubus, so he needs a little sex to live and he’s in the middle of a change and thinks constantly of the future and more sex, so he needs a mate, but it’s so hard to find a woman good enough to spend the rest of eternity together.
And that’s where Tayla comes because we can clearly see they have sparks flowing everywhere, but she is the enemy. She’s part of a human group that hunts and kill those demons, but her life changed when she met Eidolon. Tayla has some powers and what she didn’t knew is the very important thing for her life, she’s more than human, her father is a demon and her demon side is winning the war, she’s dying slowly.
These two groups are at war, and some demons are getting hunted because their body parts are being sold in the black market, so Tayla and Eidolon are part of the investigation time and are also handling their attraction.
But these two together are so hot, that I could not believe Eidolon was single until today. The guy has some crazy sperm and sex is out the stratosphere. I really liked this couple and this introduction for their world.

Book Blurb:

Davis delivers the first installment in an action-packed, sensual, romantic suspense series featuring the operatives of A-Tac, an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college.

TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE

Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she’s back in the game – this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.

Annie’s son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she’d never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn’t be higher: Their enemy’s endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.

My Thoughts:

First book in this series about agents. This one brings Nash Brennon and Annie Gallagher trying to get through some terrorism and a dark past. Eight years ago they used to work together and be a couple, but Annie decided to stop working and Nash though she had betrayed and left him to die.

The book setting is now, Annie is forced to start a mission against an UN ambassador to just to save her son, that has been kidnapped or else he’s going to be killed.
But what she doesn’t know is that Nash and the rest of the A-Tac are aware of the danger against the ambassador and start working to discover and prevent it. But since she left him, Nash doesn’t believe when Annie tells him her reasons. So she’s forced to work with the A-Tac to try and save her son without killing the ambassador and destroy the terrorist cell.

I first received the forth book on this series and after some pages, discovered that it was amazing. There’s investigation, some love also a bit of action, sine they are agents. But the best part for me is the fact that they work as professor for a college and it shows some real life despise all the dark side of fighting the evil. Loved it.

Book Blurb:

When her ex-boyfriend’s body is found in the trunk of her car, Nikki Hunt quickly becomes a prime murder suspect. Fortunately, former-cop-turned-P.I. Dallas O’Connor knows what it’s like to be unjustly accused. The lead detective, Dallas’ own brother, has the wrong woman–and Dallas hopes a little late-night undercover work will help him prove it. Original.

My Thoughts:

When I first saw this cover my thoughts were this is a book about cowboys! But no actually is about an ex-cop who was convicted and went to jail for something he didn’t do it. After proving he and two friends, who he was framed with, decided to work investigating but from other angle and they opened a PI firm named “Don’t mess with Texas”. They are trying to do some good by helping people who get accused but are innocent and prove the man who framed them.

And that’s how he meet Nikki, who is being framed for murdering her ex-husband. I liked her, she’s actually very smart and start investigating who may want to kill her ex.

This was a fun book to read and some moments gave me a smile. I liked the investigating part, and best of all it doesn’t get in the middle of the romance.

The book is a bit long but the story was good from the begin so I was hooked from the first page and read the hole thing to discover who was the killer. Also the dog was amazing, so fun.
