Release Blitz ~ Exquisite Innocence by Ann Mayburn

Book: Exquisite Innocence

Author: Ann Mayburn

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

Release Date: August 21, 2017

Lyric
I’ve spent my entire life on my parent’s isolated religious compound, sheltered and cut off from the rest of the world. It left me ill prepared to face the evil that invaded my home, and after a horrific encounter with demons masquerading as men, I fled. Some might say that my refuge is even worse than the prison I grew up in, but the men and women of the Iron Horse MC have been better to me than my own family. Unfortunately, the trouble I thought I left behind is still hunting me for reasons I don’t understand. Hustler has been assigned to be my guardian, but to my foolish heart he may be the biggest threat of all. Everything inside of me tells me we belong together, that I’ve been put on this earth to be his, but he insists we’ll never be anything more than friends.

Hustler
For as long as I can remember the Iron Horse MC has been my family. I’ve fought, bled, and sacrificed a piece of my soul for my brothers, but I’ve been set up, labeled a traitor by those I trusted most. My only hope comes in the form of a naive young girl I’ve been tasked with protecting, a woman who’s haunted both my heart and dreams. She’s everything good and beautiful in this world, and while I’ll never allow her to tarnish herself by loving me, I’ll do everything I can to make sure she survives.

Exquisite Innocence is a 55,000 word short novel and book 1 of 2 for Hustler and Lyric’s story. Book 2, the conclusion of their story in the Iron Horse MC saga, will be out before Christmas. (This unconventional MC series is one that SHOULD be read in order, starting with Exquisite Trouble)

Review ~ Inspire Me: A Hot Rod Novel by Jenna Dales

Genre: Contemporary Romance

On a stormy night in Portland, Oregon, cynical ad exec Lily Bishop crashes into a stunning classic car driven by a dark, handsome stranger with strong hands. His powerful touch makes her remember old dreams she thought she abandoned twenty years ago. Back then, she traded her MFA in photography for a lucrative advertising position that twists people’s deepest desires into just another data point.

Though he’s struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won’t accept help from anyone — certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he’s too tempted… by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.

~~

I was a bit unsure how to rate this book. Although I couldn’t relate to the romance, the sexiness..well, I could envy that. The first encounter of the twenty something mechanic hero and the forty something career driven heroine was sexy. It was a fantasy come true, and though you might blame it on the high adrenaline-they met after a mild accident after all- what comes in the following chapters was no adrenaline driven moment of wildness.

Review ~ Break Me by Autumn Stark

BreakMe

Book: Break Me

Series: In Plain Sight #1

Author: Autumn Stark

Format: e-book

Page Count: 100

Abigail Stevens, an efficient and no-nonsense editor for one of the biggest names in the romance novel industry, has a big problem. She’s been desperately in love with Anthony Tate, Mr. Romance-Writer himself, for the last four years. She’s settled for friendship and professional success for the last four years, but now the sexy writer needs something more from her and she can’t find a reason to refuse.

Tony Tate has built a career centered on his identity as America’s most romantic writer. That identity does not include a debauched temper tantrum in the aftermath of his very public break-up with his on-again, off-again girlfriend. Tony has known that Abby has had the hots for him since the moment they met, but when his Plain Jane best friend and controlling editor ends up being his only option to exorcise his demons and pent-up sexual frustration, he can’t wait to break her prim and proper shell.

As Tony and Abby push each other farther than they’ve ever gone before, the question becomes, who will break whom?

~~

I know this book is shelved as romance, but I think it’s more contemporary erotic romance, for the relationship between Abby and Tony relied heavily on the rough sex they had. And I’m sorry to say, that’s pretty much what the book is about.

Abby is a workaholic editor for Tony the Romance Wiz. As well as being Tony’s editor, she’s his caretaker, assistant, babysitter, housekeeper and probably some other things in between. Added more recently, his fuck buddy, pardon my French. I don’t have to say how much the plot intrigued me when I first read it, about a no nonsense editor and her self involved author hitting it on, but starting from the beginning I was disappointed. For one thing, there wasn’t much romance in the story to suck me in. Read More »
