From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.

Crownover ventures back to her roots with Built, the first installment of her new series The Saints of Denver.  She’s back to her contemporary romance ways, yet with a more mature tone.  I’m sure Built will be shelved by many as New Adult, but I found it much more grown up than most in the genre.

If you’ve read the Marked Men, you’ve briefly met both Zeb and Sayer. Zeb, the rugged builder and friend to Rowdy – Sayer, the polished and sophisticated attorney sister of Rowdy. As with most couplings from Crownover, they are not the most likely pair.  But that’s never stopped us from loving them before and it sure as hell won’t stop you now. 

I almost dare anyone NOT to love Zeb. Go ahead, I double dog dare you.  He’s…well, kind of just perfect.  He’s patient and thoughtful and jumps right into every responsibility whole-heartedly.  Even the ones he could have never seen coming. 

Zeb hasn’t had the easiest time in life, his fierce sense of protectiveness got him into to trouble before and it could keep him from completing the most important thing to ever come his way. He needs legal help to wade through the murky waters and knows of only one person he could trust implicitly with such a monumental fight.

Sayer. The woman who’s skirted around him for months. The woman who is determined to never let herself go with Zeb. The woman who has no clue what she really has to offer. The woman with such a crippling and skewed sense of who she is. The woman who would have totally lost that double dog dare I threw out because you can’t NOT LOVE ZEB. 

I enjoyed Sayer as well. She’s got some severe daddy issues and at times I wanted to slap some sense into her. But when it really counts, she’s a balls to the walls warrior.  Not only when it comes to fighting for others but also when she finally sees she needs to fight for herself too.

Sayer’s character grows exponentially by the end of this book and I admired how Crownover allowed it to happen only when Sayer was ready for it to happen.   She had to have the courage to be the woman she always wanted to be, deep inside.  That’s not a journey people make quickly and it’s not always a decision that you come to lightly.  We don’t all start out strong and confident, most of – in fact – don’t.  I enjoyed reading the character arcs of both Sayer and Zeb and lengths they’d go through for each other.

Built is a sweet love story with real life issues and real life emotions.  And I loved every little bit of it.

Fighting for redemption…

I've lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I'd ever loved-the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I'd made one promise-a promise I'd intended to keep. I've broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.

Can she love me even if she can't forgive me?

Learning to move on…

Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process. I may never love anyone the way I've loved him, but at least I won't spend my life wondering what if. We had our one night and he walked away. I'm finally beginning to move on when my brother's wedding and a battle of the bands brings us back together.

Our band is getting a second chance, but I don't know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?

After reading Leaving Amarillo, I was extremely anxious for this story.  However, Quinn made us wait. Damn her. 😉

In Leaving Amarillo, Dixie finally gets the courage to throw her feelings for long time friend Gavin, on the table.  She’s been in love with him for as long as she can remember but he’s promised her brother he’d never touch her.  Until one night, when all rules are broken…along with Dixie’s heart.

Gavin walks away from Dixie and her life becomes shrouded in confusion and secrets, all held by Gavin.  Now, they’re forced together for Dixie’s brother’s wedding and the lasting feelings of betrayal and love are forced to the surface again.  Dixie wants answers but is afraid to put her heart on the line, Gavin wants time but is afraid it will cost him Dixie.

It’s always been obvious that Gavin holds his cards close and I speculated on what exactly his secrets were. Some were easy to guess, one…not quite. It was interesting turn and added a pained level to this already cracked relationship.  I could understand his not wanting to share it with Dixie and it made past actions much more tolerable.

While Gavin decides the best course of action to win Dixie’s trust again, Dixie is on a plight to become a stronger person, find herself a little more, take her music in a different direction…all of which change her life, dramatically.

Had Quinn only focused on the healing of Dixie and Gavin’s relationship, Missing Dixie would not have been such a hopeful story.  It would have been just a love story. Instead, it’s a story of courage, commitment, healing, selflessness, family and hope.  I really loved the added side story arc.  It allowed Dixie and Gavin to heal and grow in much more profound ways.

The bestselling author of the Killer Instincts novels “knows how to write scorching sexual tension” (USA Today). Now she really sets it on fire in a new series about men and women living on the edge of violence, sex, and life and death.

After a devastating war decimated most of the world, Hudson Lane has only known the oppressive life under her own father’s tyranny. She finally escapes, branding herself an outlaw and hunted by the Enforcers. Her best chance at survival is Connor Mackenzie, an aggressively sensual fugitive who opens her eyes to the wicked possibilities of a world without rules.

As the leader of a band of outlaw fighters, Connor can’t resist the beautiful stranger who asks for his protection. Despite his reservations, he agrees to introduce her to a whole new way of life. But when Connor discovers Hudson’s connection to the enemies of liberty, he wonders how far he can trust the woman who has abandoned all inhibitions to challenge every forbidden desire.

Some things I love: Dystopian stories, erotic stories, Elle Kennedy‘s writing.

Imagine my delight at having all three of those show up in my mailbox, packaged in one very nice looking paperback?

Claimed is set in a post war torn America.  The geography is much different than what we now have, parts of the country are now under water and what is left is either controlled by an unforgiving government or you are an outlaw surviving on whatever you can manage to scavenge.

Hudson grew up in a city controlled by the government.  It wasn’t always as controlling as it is now,  there used to be something similar to fairness.  That’s all gone now and left in the wake is nothing but violence and murder.  Escaping the city may be easy for her but she won’t go unnoticed and she’ll have the two most powerful men in the area searching for her. Her overlord brother and her fiance, the most ruthless Lieutenant alive.

Hudson knows that surviving in outlaw land will require some help. Some shelter.  She finds that shelter in an unlikely source.  A group of five very capable, very powerful and yet, fairly unwelcoming men.  Convincing them to take her on requires her to reveal just enough about herself to make them want her around, but not quite enough to make them want her dead.  It’s a dangerous line and if not walked carefully, could cost her everything.

Connor can’t deny that Hudson stirs some parts of him better left settled. He also can’t deny that the woman is more trouble than she lets on.  But it’s the first feelings that have him ready to give in to her.  She’s smart, she’s capable, she’s gorgeous and she has this heady desire to learn what it’s like to live free.  Connor wants to be the one to teach her that.

And teach her, he does.  But when the truth comes to light, everything Connor struggles to hold together starts to crumble.

Claimed is a smut filled dangerous ride and I loved every bit of it.  Kennedy writes with a cautious balance between sexual tension, explosive eroticism and suspenseful excitement.  Nothing felt like too much, nothing felt like too little.  There is a wonderfully interesting cast of characters introduced in this first Outlaw installment and I’m eager to hear everyone’s stories.  I loved what she gave us in Claimed, strong characters, secrets, deceit, danger, lust, love…so much packed into this book!

DOWN AND DIRTY

Faced with a choice between bad-boy detective Dean Ryker and sexy power player Parker Anderson, Sage Reece fought the law--and the law won. But while Ryker's sizzling touch may rule her nights, Sage's days belong to Parker's cool, calculating intensity. . . .

Both Ryker and Parker are determined to protect Sage from a brutal enemy who'd use her to pay for their mistakes. Yet when the usually on-point Ryker is distracted by ghosts from his past, Parker seizes his opportunity to get Sage's attention--and keep it in ways beyond her wildest dreams.

Now, caught between a mobster out for revenge and two men who were once best friends, Sage must play to win--even if it means getting dirty. . .

In my review of the first Risky Business book, Power Play, I stated that the love triangle here didn’t bother me. There was a dynamic to it that felt very natural and real.  Sage had been in love with her boss, Parker, for years.  He had turned down her advances and she was trying to move on with Ryker, a man very much available and interested…even if her heart still had a connection to Parker.  I got that. It made sense to me. And, it wasn’t the main focus of the story.

However, my thoughts are quite different with this sequel.

Playing Dirty turned into the sort of love triangle I really dislike.  Sage became a wishy-washy heroine. This book takes place four months after the end of the first. Four months in which she’s dated Ryker, they practically live together, yet she still has feelings for Parker and she thinks about them often. This is where my adverse feelings for Sage stemmed.  If you are not past a crush after four months, you’re leading on your current relationship.  I wanted to slap some sense into her. I wanted her to break it off with Ryker until she found some clarity.

Instead, she bounces from one to the other like a ping pong ball.

So, that’s the bad.  That’s what dropped the rating down a bit.  I was that frustrated.  However….

The action of the story, as well as Parker and Ryker, still very much held my attention.  I like the twisty mobsters and crime boss storyline Snow has going on here. It’s interesting and exciting.

I like the broken relationship that Paker and Ryker struggle with, as well.  I want more of that.  I want to see how can heal, I want to know more of they mysterious woman that drove such a wedge between them.  And ultimately, I want to see what they can be like after a second woman comes between them.

That is the factor that had me really thinking about how much I liked this book. No, I didn’t like the love triangle, but…if not for the love triangle aspect…I wouldn’t have the disfunctional relationship with Parker and Ryker.  It kind of put my mind in a pickle.

But I really need Sage to pull her head out of her ass and man up to her feelings. All of them.

While I focused a lot here on the part that aggravated me, I am still invested in the story and enjoyed many aspects of it.  I’m also still very much looking forward to the third book.

Review: Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent comes a richly imagined, provocative new series set in the dark mythology of the Menagerie…

When Delilah Marlow visits a famous traveling carnival, Metzger's Menagerie, she is an ordinary woman in a not-quite-ordinary world. But under the macabre circus black-top, she discovers a fierce, sharp-clawed creature lurking just beneath her human veneer. Captured and put on exhibition, Delilah in her black swan burlesque costume is stripped of her worldly possessions, including her own name, as she's forced to "perform" in town after town.

But there is breathtaking beauty behind the seamy and grotesque reality of the carnival. Gallagher, her handler, is as kind as he is cryptic and strong. The other "attractions"—mermaids, minotaurs, gryphons and kelpies—are strange, yes, but they share a bond forged by the brutal realities of captivity. And as Delilah struggles for her freedom, and for her fellow menagerie, she'll discover a strength and a purpose she never knew existed.

Renowned author Rachel Vincent weaves an intoxicating blend of carnival magic and startling humanity in this intricately woven and powerful tale.

If you picked up Menagerie expecting to find a story similar to her Soul Screamers series, you won’t.  You will still find some of the bold moves Vincent takes as an author, you won’t, however, find much of the humor or light heartedness that was always present in that series.  Menagerie is NOT a Young Adult title, it is not a Romance. It’s Fantasy, full on Fantasy…with all the dark and dangerous things that lurk in that genre.

Delilah was a bank teller, a settled girlfriend, a happy friend when she was taken to the Menagerie for her twenty-fifth birthday.  Mitzger’s Menagerie, known for it’s wonderfully horrible monsters, is not the place Delilah wishes to spend her birthday. It certainly isn’t the place she would ever expect to live.  But witnessing the cruelty suffered by one young shifter cryptid turns mild mannered, bank teller Delilah into something…other. 

“Three hundred one thousand babies were born in hospitals in across the United States in March of 1980.  Not one of them made it home from the hospital.”

Now, she’s sold to the Menagerie. She’s nothing more than property, less than human, yet nobody knows for certain WHAT she is. All she knows is that she can’t survive a life of imprisonment, forced to perform at will or stand by while others are treated so brutally and carelessly.  Delilah’s will to make a better life for creatures cast aside by society and her sheer determination to not let captivity take her dignity from her starts a small fire inside of some at the traveling circus and when that fire takes hold, it could destroy them all.  Or, free them all.

Vincent creates such a dark and tortured world with this story.  It’s sad, very immoral and at times, extremely gruesome.  It’s a trip down an ethical rabbit hole, every move has consequences, even the ones made for the greater good. This is the part of the story I loved. 

I deal in morality, not in law.

I also loved that it’s written in a bit of puzzle, Vincent leads you down the path – leaving little bread crumb clues here and there, but you still have try and come up with the answers.  It’s all so very cryptic at times.

I think the only thing it was really missing for me was in the pacing of it.  I’d went through stages of being glued to the pages, to times being almost bored.  In the wide picture, I see the need for some of the added chapters that don’t bring much to the story as your reading, but I wish they would have been as impactful as other chapters were.   

Outside of that though, the world is great, the characters are mostly amazing (Rommily…that girl needs a book all of her own) and the story has just enough macarbe to give you the chills without actually terrifying you.

Lauren Michaels is exhausted with the push and pull of copy editing for Los Angeles’s woman’s magazine, Frenzy, which caters to pop culture, style, and above all, sex.

She wants to write for the magazine rather than edit, but her boss is convinced that Lauren’s conservative tendencies won’t fit in with the risqué nature of what Frenzy is about.

Convinced to make her mark, Lauren begs for the chance to prove her self.

Her boss agrees, tasking her with the impossible, in hopes of failure, because although she doesn’t want her to become a journalist, she doesn’t want to lose her as Editor-in-Chief, either.

Her daunting mission? To investigate the growing popularity of sex clubs in Los Angeles, and figure out how the sensual underworld functions.

 

Out of her element, Lauren starts her search with pen and paper in hand at a local sex shop, hoping she’ll find a trail that leads to the dark lairs of sex and fetishes.

Trying to hide her inexperience, and pretending she’s a professional sex kitten, this trail instead leads her to one brooding, Nathan Sanders.

He’s daunting, charming, and a little too dark and mysterious for her taste, but Lauren knows he’s what she needs as her way in.

What she doesn’t see coming is that Nathan is all too willing to invite her to a nightclub she’s only ever heard stories about, and also the fact that Nathan know’s Lauren doesn’t have a clue what she’s getting herself into.

However, he can’t turn down the idea of helping her out with her research once she confesses the whole story.

This could be fun, they said. There’s no harm in it, they agreed.

Little do they know, a little research can serve up some unexpected results.
