Summary:

Alone and broke, Paige Stewart can t believe her good luck. Who hires a virtual stranger out of a New York City coffee shop to care for their adorable grandson? Apparently Claudia Renaldi does.

Widower Matteo Renaldi isn t pleased that his mother found a replacement nanny so soon after he fired the last one. Yet little Matty takes to Paige like no other nanny before. And Matteo can t deny he s quite taken with her as well. She s beautiful. Sweet. And far, “far” too young for him.

There s something about the gorgeously sexy Matteo that fills Paige with longing to break through his wall of formality and touch his softer side. But no one knows better than she that crushing on her boss is one thing. Acting on those feelings is forbidden. Foolish.

Inevitable

Warning: Sexy, grumpy Italian hero who is determined to keep his walls up. No matter how much his son s sweetly beautiful nanny drives him to distraction

Review:

One afternoon I decided to start this freebie and it’s really short so I finished really fast, but what I didn’t knew was the fact this is a prequel and I loved Matteo and Paige so much that to start the full novel. I only gave three starts because the book is short and I had no idea it didn’t have an end, super pissed at that.

I loved the Renaldi’s, Claudia is the perfect matriarch and it’s always meddling in his kids life and one afternoon she found th perfect nanny for Mattie. I liked her, she’s a perfect grandmother and she has some demons, but it’s still happy and busy with her family.

Summary:

Paige Stewart has committed the ultimate nanny sin—she’s fallen in love with her boss. She adores Matteo Renaldi’s sweet, precocious son. Who wouldn’t? But it’s torture going about her day-to-day tasks, catching fleeting glimpses of the boy’s enigmatic father. Chastising herself for fantasizing she’s in the Renaldi master bed…

It’s ridiculous, pointless. After all, soon little Matty won’t need her anymore and she’ll move on.

Matteo has no interest in dating. He’s consumed by work, his son…and his son’s nanny. She’s everything he’s not: young, carefree, trusting, maybe a little naïve. She deserves better than an embittered widower. Yet when she accidentally falls into his arms, he can’t resist drawing her in for a kiss that quickly spirals out of control.

As they travel to his family’s home in Italy and slowly fall in love, the whispers start. And when one particularly ugly story blows up in their faces, their reputations might escape unscathed, but their hearts may not…

Product Warnings
The sexy, grumpy Italian hero is finally won over by his son’s sweetly beautiful nanny—though it was quite the challenge for her to catch him. Watch for lots of high drama, passionate love and malicious rumors before these two can find their HEA.

Review:

Okay, Matteo and Paige finally have a HEA, but things were a little difficult for these two. I loved Paige and she made a huge difference in Matteo life, especially taking care of little Matty, but I did not liked the way his family, especially his brothers treated her as a simply golddiger. One dinner was extremaly difficult. I loved their relationship and how much Matteo oppened his heart for this new love.

I think these two made a cute couple and I was dreading the end, but things became more difficult in the end and they barely managed, but Matteo was so honest and almost perfect in saying sorry. Loved this family and will hunt the previous series now.

Erotica Review: Mustang Sally by Jayne Rylon

Mustang Sally (Hot Rods #2)

Two men will give her the ride of her life.
Hot Rods, Book 2
Salome “Sally” Rider is flooring the gas pedal of her pink ’69 Mustang, desperate to outrun the memory of two of her fellow mechanics getting busy with some bar skank on the hood of a classic car. On her custom paint job.
For years her emotions have withered while her lost boys, her Hot Rods, have grown closer than brothers. Maybe some downtime with the Powertools sexperts will help her figure out why Eli and Alanso went looking for some stranger when Sally was waiting right at the ends of their grease-smudged noses.
Sally is dead wrong about what she thought she saw, and Eli “King Cobra” London and the rest of the thoroughly rattled Hot Rods are determined to prove it. They’ll show her in the sexiest possible way that she’s not merely an interchangeable part in their well-oiled machine.
Yet just as Eli gets up the nerve to make a very indecent proposal, a ghost rises from her painful past. Threatening to slam the brakes on their future before they can get it in gear.
Product Warnings
A sexy car wash complete with lots of studs may not be enough to clean up the pages filled with massive ménage scenes starring extra-dirty mechanics.

I liked this book because it gave the ending for the previous one and a new beginning for the Hot Rods, but I still think it would be better if the story was in one book and it was strange seeing the trio start this book apart, but I liked the hot scenes with the Powertools again, they are so hot together and that is exactly what I’ve been missing for this series.
 
Finally Sally got the men she was dreaming about, but they totally screwed up in the first chapters. They wanted her to be a part of their life, but it was strange how they decided to enjoy and handle their relationship first without her and she felt left behind, especially when they didn’t shared with her their reasons and fears.
 
But I think every one needed a little breather and some time to get their head back and their thoughts together, because after Sally returned things went full force and this series is getting hotter than ever. Sally is a wild girl and pleasured seven guys in one night. I have no idea how she managed to sit after that, but this was a better book than the first for me.

Erotica Review: King Cobra by Jayne Rylon

King Cobra (Hot Rods, #1)

After Eli’s mother died, his father honored her life’s mission as a social worker by taking in several kids from the wrong side of the tracks. Not all of them stuck, but those who did became Eli’s quasi family.
Their bonds, forged in fires set by their personal demons, are unbreakable—or so Eli wants to believe. Especially since he and Alanso, his best friend and head mechanic, witnessed the overpowering allure of polyamory while visiting the Powertools crew.
Much as Eli would like to deepen the relationships among his foster brothers and sister in the Hot Rods Restoration Team, he’s hesitant to risk everything on a quick romp behind a stack of tires.
But when Eli catches Alanso exploring their mutual fantasy at a known hookup spot in a public park, all bets are off. And Eli must decide if it’s time to jump in full throttle—and trust his instincts to guide him through the night. If the pair of mechanics can dodge the potholes in their own relationship, maybe they can race together toward the unconventional arrangement with Mustang Sally they both desire.
Warning: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a wild (and naughty) ride!

I loved meeting the crew in her Powertools series and was dying for a story about Eli and Alanso, because they shared a super hot moment in Hammer it Home, so this book was perfect in some moments for this, but I was hoping for another crew and it didn’t happen yet.
 
This was more focused on Eli and Alanso working their fears and discovering a different relationship. It’s pretty clear Eli is afraid off what people will think, but mostly his father. Alanso is tired of hiding and wants a normal life with someone that truly loves him.
 
So the Eli and Alanso moments were super hot!! But something was missing in this book because we can clearly see they want Sally to be a part of their love and I missed this. I know this is book two story, but there’s thought in my mind about her with them and the rest of the gang was a bit like ghosts.
 
I wanted something like the crew, but the relationship was over the top super hot.

Review: Wolf Nip by Vivian Arend

Wolf Nip (Granite Lake Wolves, #6)

Cat got your tongue?
Tessa Williams is looking to make her mark outside the family business, and the unusual landlocked paddle wheeler she spots in Haines, Alaska, strikes her as the perfect location. Only the owner is being difficult, refusing to sell. Still, she’s sure that replacing her written queries with a little in-person charm is all she’ll need to shortly have her Eco-tour B&B on the road to success.
Local wolf-slash-owner of said vessel, Mark Weaver, isn’t hanging on to the landmark building out of spite. There are more reasons for holding back the sale than are easily explained on paper. A face-to-face meeting to resolve the matter only confounds it—when Mark recognizes Tessa as his mate.
But she’s a cat…and cats don’t do insta-mates.
The sexual attraction between them isn’t in question, just everything else. He wants her. She wants twue wuv. His wolf can’t figure out what the holdup is. Her cat thinks the entire situation, and the pack, are rather amusing.
Somewhere in here is the beginning of a beautiful relationship—if they don’t drive each other mad.
Warning: One hyper cat, one laid-back wolf. Inappropriate use of permanent markers, and a heaping side dish of cat/dog jokes. Shenanigans (read: nookie) in front of a roaring fire. Spiced liberally with sarcasm. Enjoy!

Another fast and very fun story from these extremely horny wolves. I especially liked this one because it showed a different relationship. I never would’ve thought of mixing a wolf and a cat, but it kinda turned up really good, because these two are so perfect together.

Tessa is so vibrant and full of live, but has a few fears about success because of her family business and how much she doesn’t like water. So this new venture is actually everything she was hoping to start new, but Mark is really sweet and discovered right away she’s the perfect woman for him after his wolf scratched mate loudly.

It was really fun to read Tessa falling in love and trying to accepted the mating progress, because she was basically afraid, but everything turned up really fine and we could see a few of those other couples making an appearance now and them.

Review: Hammer it Home by Jayne Rylon

Hammer It Home (Powertools, #6)

Morgan is happy that her best friend Kate is expecting the crew s littlest member, but helping renovate a room for a nursery is more than she can bear. Baby furniture and pastel paint are a painful reminder that she and Joe can t and will never conceive. There s no hiding it from the rest of the close-knit crew, either.
True to their unique brand of love, the gang rallies to find a non-traditional solution to alleviate their friends suffering. Not with a cold, clinical visit to a sperm donation clinic, but delivering it the old-fashioned way. With a healthy dose of searing passion.
But soon after Morgan s scorching hot night with her husband s four best friends, an accident threatens the life of one of those men. The challenges that lie ahead will test the crew s powerful bond to the limit and their long-standing promise to take care of each other through good, bad, and sexy times. Whatever it takes
Warning: Not everything in life turns out as planned, but with love all odds are surmountable. Especially when those odds include five hot construction workers on your side. Contains m/m/f group m nage scenes.

Last book on this series and I discovered the last two were the best, maybe because they were longer or just maybe because the crew is all together to help someone or just to mess around.

Last book ended when we discovered Kate and Mike were expecting a baby, of course everyone was happy but Morgan and Joe can’t conceive and things are getting a little difficult for this couple, so as always the crew came to the rescue and they decided to enjoy a night of donating sperm the old way.

This book felt like the most emotional and we happy more than just sex and love. Dave had a car accident and everyone is really sad about it, but it so nice watching the crew coming together to help Kayla and Dave, they are all really like a family.

Plus we met the cousins from Canada and they made a pretty good entrance to this different world. I think there could be a book very soon about the Cobra.

Review: Nailed to the Wall by Jayne Rylon

Nailed to the Wall (Powertools, #5)

The crew is back and they’re dirtier than ever.
Five sexy men with a penchant for love and lust in any variation have formed a crew. They work hard and play harder—together. Though their partnership began in construction, renovating houses and selling them for a mint, they’ve formed a bond around their shared goal to provide women, and each other, with the ultimate sexual experience.
Over the past year, as each member discovered his soul mate—or two—they expanded the reach of their circle, lighting up their nights along with their souls. Monogamous relationships and the desire to start families threaten to put their libertine revelry on the back burner. Will the passion that bonded them fade away? How will the new crew wives cope with the complex relationship the men will always cherish and crave?
Determined to prove they stand by their men, the women decide it’s time to flex some muscle and give the crew a dose of girl power. They collude to take the guys as their horny hostages, using some big guns: boudoir photos, a pillow fight and a calculated foray into partner swapping. But will they have the guts to go through with their plans?
Product Warnings
By Book Five in this series, fans will attest that anything goes in the crew. Be prepared for ménage in every flavor—m/f, f/f, mfm, fmf, and more—along with a slew of that’s what he said jokes. No throwing tomatoes at the author, please!

This book felt different than the previous and we can see all those couples have settled down to a routine and now they want to explore things a bit more. So the woman decided to join the play and a little swingers party happened when they actually discussed.

Plus Kayla finally discussed her attraction for Devon and we had a very hot F/F sex scene. The crew was really great with Mike and Kate when they decided to share about growing the family.

Things are looking good for those guys and their lives are pretty much perfect. I don’t know why but I always consider Devon the luckiest one because she snared two great guys, James and Neil.

Review: Devon’s Pair by Jayne Rylon

Devon's Pair (Powertools, #4)

Will his boyfriend’s girlfriend become his girlfriend too?
Powertools, Book 4
James has watched each of the crew fall in love, one by one, until only he and his life partner Neil remain “unattached”. So, when he sees the way his bisexual boyfriend is checking out their new apprentice, he’s sure he’s doomed to lose the man of his dreams.
His love is strong enough that he would let go to ensure Neil’s happiness. Instead, sparks fly between the three of them—along with the rest of the crew—and he realizes he might not have to surrender because his boyfriend’s girlfriend is becoming his girlfriend too.

I never expected another woman in the mix. Plus I thought Neil and James were perfect together so why destroy something that’s already working, but at the end this was the best book on the series by far to me.

One thing that crosses my mind was how these woman are never shy. Neil was very surprised about the sex she interrupted but she jumped on the next scene and was naked before the hour ran out. Not a shy person.

Plus we got to see more of the other couples when they decided to retreat to a barbecue on the spa mentioned on book 3. I liked this scene. The sex was really explosive and I enjoyed seeing them all together, plus another strange and very normal moment was the discussion between Neil and James.

I liked this new “couple”. I never even questioned their relationship after the first sex.
