Series: Safe #2
My Copy: Ebook from Netgalley for Review
Legal secretary Josephine Valenti has no idea why a notorious bikie president would be contacting her, but when he is murdered in front of her eyes, she knows that she is in very deep trouble. Fleeing to her home, she's intercepted by Nate Hunter, a man she used to know and lust after…a man she used to care about.
However, Nate has changed. His leathers and his bike tell of a lifestyle that Josie can't begin to accept or understand. His is a life of drugs, money laundering and prostitution.
Though, all is not what it seems, and Josie must fight harder than she ever has before — for the truth, for what's right, and, ultimately for the man who still has a hold of her heart.
I gobbled this book up from the very start. Thirty five year old Nate the previewed in In Safe Hands; takes the spotlight in this novel. He is undercover working to bring down the Altar Boys Biker Club money laundering business. Although, when he comes across Josie that also previewed in the first novel as well it turns into a spicy romance novel. I unfortunately started In Safe Arms unaware that it was the second of the series. Obviously, it is possible to read one without the other, but with such a splendid book I now want to learn more about Allegra and Luke. This is a criminal suspense novel wrapped up nicely in a drool worthy romance. Josie only being twenty adds a bit of the forbidding romance to these pages. Nate spends a duration of time sorting through his feelings, due to this one aspect, and I think it adds much more suspense to the story. I think it partially adds to his alpha male persona, and gives him more of a caretaker lead. For fans of Kristen Ashley, this is a must read. I felt the Ashley ability rolling through this entire read, and fell head-over heels in love with the similar characters. Lee Christine is wonderfully talented in creating a story of passion and danger. She carefully builds her story to invoke maximum emotion, and captivated readers will her intensity that will carry through the stories duration. This has most definitely sealed her position on my author's to watch list. BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMENDED READ!!~BookWhisperer Reviewer Jax~

She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek.
“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.”
My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.”
I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair.
Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart…

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper.

Title: The Missing Link
By: J.M. Sevilla
Series: Marked Part 1
My Copy: Ebook from Amazon
Part one of a two part series.
There are three things Lily Evans immediately notices about her new neighbor, Jay Lincoln. The first is his monstrous size, the second is the malicious way he glares at her, and thirdly, but most importantly, the three scars that mark his right eye. She knows the smart thing to do is stay away, but she has never met or seen anyone like him. The more time she spends with this frightening yet captivating man, the harder it becomes. He can make her hairs stand on end but he also has a sweetness to him that tugs at her heart. Soon she finds herself merged into his world full of murder, revenge, and deceit.
One of those AMAZING books that you just happen across. No BIG to do with reviews posting right and left. Just a book that you come across, and can’t put down after starting. Jay and Lily have two very different backgrounds, but yet so many common traits. This is the perfect romance of completion when they are put together. I loved this story, from the first word to the mountainous cliff hanger. Jay is all dark and broody with Alpha sex appeal. Lily’s character transforms throughout the story, but we are left with a independent and courageous woman that readers will be rooting for. Fate played in Jay life with the use of a Christmas dinner, and it was a whirlwind thrill ride from page one. The mystery and suspense lasts the majority of the story with the secrecy of a Jay’s life. When we finally uncover his past my heart pours out for his character. No one deserves such a terribly soul crushing life. This story left me so twisted, and then I discover that the next story is no where in sight. WTF????? How long will I have to wait, but I promise you one day one year if book two is anything like this we are in for one hell of a ride. The Missing Link is a dark and dangerous story looking at the more unsavory parts of life, but the story created in this pages is worth every minute. One of the best books I have read this year!

Series: Great Exploitations #2
My Copy: Bought from Amazon
But when Sienna Stevens leaves Miami for her Errand in Seattle as Ally Andrews, revenge is the only thing on her mind. A woman scorned is one thing, but Ally is something else altogether. She will not rest until the man who upended her world is brought to his personal and financial knees. She won’t settle for just upending his world in return. She’s going for full-blown annihilation.
Ally’s barely in Seattle a day before complications arise. She begins making slips. She’s one error away from being pulled from the biggest Errand of her career when she comes face to face with Henry Callahan. Former lover. Current Target.
Things just went from complicated to catastrophic.
EVEN BETTER!!!! I little story just told me SO much.... Nicole offers a little history, mission, and side story all in one story. After taking on the revenge mission I had expected that alone. Now, it has become obvious that each story is a mission, but with a overall running of this bigger story. Then, we are mixing in the history of these lovers. I have some guesses about where this is going, and each and every story is bringing me one step closer. Evie is vicious and brutal, but it is so perfectly delivered to these loathing and despicable men. I love every minute of it. Just as I said in the first books review this is definitely a girl power book, so far and the avid lover of independent female leads will eat up her character. Unfortunately, book three is not accessible yet, so here is to waiting for more of this great story. This is a BookWhisperer Recommended Read. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer Jax~

Series: Mischief in Miami #1
My Copy: Ebook for Review
Seduction. Infidelity. Blackmail. Scandal. It can all be bought for the right price and for Sienna Stevens, business is good.
Because she’s in the business of Great Exploitations.
She’s an Eve, a member of a secret society of women contracted by the wives of wealthy, powerful men for one reason and one reason only: to seduce their husbands. To ensure their pre-nuptial agreement will be null and void thanks to a little loophole known as the Infidelity Clause. To ensure that those wives don’t find themselves on the other side of a divorce without a penny to their name.
When it comes to the Eves, Sienna’s one of the best because she follows the number one rule of the Eves to the letter: don’t let it get personal.
When the job file of her wealthiest client yet falls into her lap, Sienna realizes that this case could be the one that’s impossible to detach herself from. The payout would lead to her independence, but will the cost be too high in the end?
Love me some Nicole Williams!!!! This is definitely a book with a bit of girl power. This whole concept of the Eve's. WONDERFUL!!!! Finding the lying cheating bastard, and bringing them all down it is a dark and dangerous life, but Evie is the perfect woman for the job. I love this seductive and mysterious type of story. I have some hypothesis for the future of the series, but it will be amazing discovering the direction for myself in book two. These are very short stories, and readers will race through the pages. Not for the faint hearted, and be prepared for the brutal and honest truth of the life she lives. This is a rough one that spurs a dark mixture of emotions.
