A strapping bodyguard and a mysterious beauty on the run cross paths and tempt danger in Cozumel…

Dangerous Beauty, an all-new sexy and suspenseful romance from J.T. Geissinger is available now!

FinalCover

For Nasir, former Special Ops military man and bodyguard, his new job seems like an easy-money gig: trail a Russian mobster’s runaway wife in Mexico, enjoy the sun, observe, and report. Just one rule: don’t get too close. But it’s all Naz can do not to watch the alluring dancer’s every move. A closer look is irresistible—especially when she’s in trouble.

Evalina escaped to the island getaway to live an untraceable life—as far away from the past as she can get. But Eva can’t ignore the dark, muscled stud who rescues her from a drug gang. He says he’s an ex-cop on vacation. When providence throws them together time and again, Eva thinks it’s all a beautiful coincidence. Now she’s giving in to a strange new sensation: trust.

But Naz has a mission to accomplish and a secret to keep. Eva has her share of secrets, too. And as the heat flares between them, Naz knows that trust could become the most dangerous impulse of all.

Excerpt:

I turn to look at her. She’s framed in the doorway with the light bright behind her and her face in shadow, her hair a golden corona around her head. A band of tightness settles around my chest.

I take a step toward her. She takes a step back. I don’t know what she sees on my face, but her eyes are huge and her pulse is throbbing in the side of her neck.

When I take another step and she retreats again, I stop. “Are you afraid of me?”

She laughs shakily. “No.”

“Then why are you backing up?”

“I was hoping I’d be at the wall by now. I need it to hold me up. I’m so excited I think I might faint.”

The band around my chest grows tighter.

“Stay where you are,” I say, holding her gaze. The eye contact feels like a touch, like an electrical current running on a loop between us. It’s probably close to ninety degrees, but the skin on my arms raises in gooseflesh. As I take another step toward her, she flexes her hands open and draws a breath.

She says with quiet wonder, “I can feel my heartbeat in my fingertips.”

“I know. Me too.”

I advance another step. She’s an arm’s length away. I see it when she begins to tremble.

“This must be what a stroke feels like,” she whispers as I reach out and touch her face.

“Probably not this good.” I slide my hand into her hair, and she bites her lip.

When I move closer, she raises her hands and flattens them on my chest. I know she can feel how hard my heart is pounding. Her breathing is as erratic as mine.

“Oh God,” she says faintly. “I really hope this kiss you’re about to give me is as amazing as the pre-kiss. I think my panties just went up in flames.”

“Not a good idea to talk to me about your panties right now, sweetheart,” I murmur, brushing my lips over her jaw. “I’m barely in control as it is.”

I nuzzle my nose into the soft, sweet spot under her earlobe and drag in a breath scented of her skin. She shudders. I cradle her head in my hands as her fingers dig into my chest. I open my mouth over the pulse in her throat and she moans, low and soft, arching into me.

That little moan sets my entire body on fire.

With one hand cupped around the back of her head and the other around her jaw, I tilt her head back and fit my mouth to hers.

Her lips part. Our tongues touching is an electrical shock. She makes a soft, feminine noise in the back of her throat that makes me feel savage, like an animal.

We stand in the gloom and kiss, deep and slow, until the urge to push her against the wall, lift her skirt, and thrust deep inside her is a hot, heady pulse in my veins. She slides her arms up around my shoulders so her breasts press against my chest. I feel her nipples, two hard points in a lush expanse of skin, and groan into her mouth.

My dick is so hard it’s throbbing.

“I want you to kiss me everywhere,” she whispers, breaking away from my mouth but staying in my arms. She’s panting. Her eyes look glazed. “I want you to take off my clothes and kiss me everywhere like that. Promise me you will.”

I huff out a breath that’s part laugh and part groan. “So it measured up to the pre-kiss, huh?”

My Review- 4 Stars!

Dangerous Beauty is my first read by J.T. Geissinger, so I had no idea what I was going into besides reading the blurb. A blurb can give you an idea of what the story is, but writing styles truly vary from author to author.

I really like the flow of this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and read it in a few hours. I started before bed, went to bed and finished when I got up. It was easy to read, had great build up to the events, and leaves you off on a cliffhanger. I know a lot of people don’t like cliffhangers but I found this one was done really well.

I really enjoyed Naz and Eva. They connected really well throughout the story and had quite the journey with one another. I don’t like to give too much away in reviews, so I will say that I really think this is an enjoyable book and one to get your hands on. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen when part 2 comes along! I’ll be reading more J.T. Geissinger for sure!

USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss currently lives in a small town near the Gulf of Mexico. She’s a full-time writer, time-waster extraordinaire, social media addict, and coffee fiend. She’s written over ten books and has two series available. She loves spending her free time with her boyfriend, 2 cats, and her hamster.
 
Before becoming a writer, Chelle taught high school history for over ten years. She holds a master’s degree in Instructional Technology and a bachelor’s in History. Although history is her first love, writing has become her dream job and she can’t imagine doing anything else.

My Review- 5 Stars!

Chelle Bliss does it again! Another book of pure perfection. Let me just say Vinnie is my favorite Gallo brother now! Holy smokes!!!

Vinnie and Bianca totally don’t hit it off right away in this book. Vinnie winds up having some issues with a stalker and turns to Bianca for help. Reluctantly she agrees to help him as long as he accompanies her for a family event that will be taking place.

These two are very hard workers, committed to their jobs and not searching for any type of relationship. Yet, you can tell that they both know they are in trouble from the very beginning. I mean he is ALL man, and he can’t stop thinking about her. Things are bound to happen.

This was such a steamy and fantastic read. I highly recommend this book. Chelle Bliss weaves some magic with these alphas she writes!

My Review- 4 Stars
When We Fall by Olivia Rose was my first read by this author. This book was one with lots of heartache, loss, tragedy, and most importantly love. This book was a very emotional read. It sucked me right in and I could relate to each of the characters in many different ways. Mason and Erin were at moments tough to read about and at others a joy. You experienced their emotions right along with them and I always love a book that can bring those emotions to life for me.

Erin is in her senior year of high school where she tries to be invisible and counts down the time until she moves on to college and a new life. In walks Mason, the new boy in town, and he changes absolutely everything.

Erin deals with a lot on a daily basis and there are so many moments where you feel pure rage on her behalf. I can assure that she will be such a relatable character for many. She stands up for things she believes in, she has to grieve tragedies that she goes through, and most important we get to feel her love come through the pages. This was a great read and I truly look forward to the next read!

Synopsis
Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.
Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.
As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?

5 Star Review!!
Eryn and West, yes please!!! Misadventures with My Ex was absolutely amazing. I truly love Shayla Black as an author and I haven’t been disappointed by any of her books. West and Eryn were once together, ready to walk down the aisle and call themselves husband and wife. That was until things went wrong and the wedding never took place.

This story focuses on their misadventure together and their journey. It is certainly one you will want to read about as it is super steamy and full of emotions. I have truly loved every Misadventures book in this amazing series. This one had me reading as fast as possible because I just needed to know what was going to happen next.

Another 5 Star Misadventure!!

Synopsis 


 

 

Jasmine Pritchett needs a job. A pathway to financial independence. When Transform, the local gym, initiates an expansion to offer fitness classes, she sees her opportunity. Armed with several instructor certifications and even more persistence, she finds herself interviewing for the job in front of two of the sexiest men she’s ever laid eyes on.
 

 

Maddox Gibson craves control. He’s been trying to regain his zest for life since being discharged from the army, and with the help of his best friend, Wilder Vaughn, he’s worked his way from rock bottom to find happiness as a successful gym co-owner. Wilder lives life like his name implies—wildly—and without Maddox’s rigid temperament to keep him grounded, his lighthearted impulsiveness could very well get him into trouble. 

 

 

When these two beefy best buds invite Jasmine into their friendship, sparks fly quickly, and Jasmine tries to convince them she can be so much more. To both of them. Can Jaz, Mad, and Wild figure out how to navigate a polyamorous relationship without destroying their friendship…and their hearts?

This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. They learned a ton about each other through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly. They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
 

5 Star Review!!

Misadventures in a Threesome. Elizabeth Hayley, you guys freaking slayed me!!

Where in the world do I even begin on giving this book a review? It was so very hot, so very steamy, and so everything I wanted to read!

Maddox and Wilder are two best friends who co-own a gym named Transform. These two are opposite in so many ways, yet just click together. Maddox is the organized, punctual, stricter of the two. Wilder is well, wild.

Jasmine Pritchett comes in for an interview and can’t believe her luck when she lands the job. From minute one you could feel the chemistry of the characters coming off the pages and I couldn’t wait to dive further into this book. The further I got into the book, the steamier it got!

Ups, downs, and journeying with these three was an absolute amazing thing to read about. These two ladies have truly become one of my go to authors. They are so freaking fantastic together! You two blew this one out of the water!

My Review- 5 Stars!

Jessica Hawkins is a new to me author and boy I was NOT disappointed!! Violent Delights was a freaking fantastic way to start off this series. The story is focused around Natalia Cruz and two brothers, Cristiano and Diego de la Rosa.

From the very beginning I had already picked my hero once things started rolling and I won’t share my choice just yet. I was sucked into this read from page one and couldn’t put it down. This had so much action, passion, betrayal, and such fantastic characters.

Violent Delights is a fantastic start to the White Monarch trilogy. It ended on a heck of a cliffhanger and left me with so many questions that I cannot wait to find out the answers too. I cannot believe I didn’t read this author before, but now I will be making sure to read everything! Job well done!

Excerpt
“The dark
night of the soul? Mind telling me what the hell that was about?” The heavy
wooden door echoed through the tight chamber when it slammed against the door
jamb.
Bastien
remained still across the small sacristy, head bowed as he continued to work
quietly, deft fingers sliding thin, golden ropes of sacred fabric through his
fingers. “I’d rather know what you think.”
Frustration
thickened my blood. “I’m your dark night of the soul?! I think you went a step
too far.”
“If that’s what you call a step too
far I’d hate to hear what you call indecent.” His body was against mine in an
instant, my breasts heaving with shallow irritation and grazing the fabric of
his vestments.
This
profoundly infuriating man was under my skin like no one else had ever been,
and just like a bad tattoo, I’d pay a professional to gouge him out of my soul
if I could.
“This, for
instance,” he hissed, “is surely a step too close to your precious comfort
zone.” His body pressed closer, the deep ridge of his arousal cutting at my hip
and causing my throat to crack and turn to dust. “Don’t trick yourself into
believing that you know you more than
I do, Tressa.”
His dark
eyes glinted in the dim light, heartbeat vibrating in my ears the only noise in
the room. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
I couldn’t
catch my breath, his fingers crawling their way past my wrists, grazing the
underside of my elbows before his thumbs dug in and he was as far deep inside my
own heart as he could possibly go.
“You like
the dance, sweet dove, but just when things get intimate you pull away.”
His
scathing truth cut like a hot blade.
“No,” I
squeaked.
His soft
chuckle my only reply, my eyelids already glued shut in opposition of his
words.
“You think
you only show me the side of you you want me to see,” Bastien’s thumb danced
the arch of my brow, “but I see so much more than that.” His eyes flicked down
to my lips, hips working softly against mine.
“I’m
trained to see the broken parts you’ve spent a lifetime hiding. I’m trained to
be your light in the darkness, Tressa, but all that darkness,” his thumbs
worked inside my elbows, swaying me against his body as he grit against my
neck, “it weighs on me some days. Seminary doesn’t teach a flesh and blood man
how to channel all that darkness into…” he flexed behind his robes, my body
humming with pure desire for anything more he had to give, “productive
activities.”
I didn’t
have a reply for him, the way he swallowed my space and caused my heart to
thrum like a hummingbird was distracting enough, but his skin setting flame to
mine was beyond unbearable.
“What about
you, then?” I summoned my earlier anger. “You fancy yourself some sort of
holier than thou saint? Forgive me Father, but I call bullshit.”
Bastien’s
eyes held mine, the amusement chasing through his chocolate irises giving me
enough satisfaction to live on for days.
I squared
my shoulders. “You’re a prisoner to your belief.”
His
eyebrows rose, shock striking him before his face settled to that same
well-orchestrated calm he reserved for his parishioners. “You can bet I’m a
prisoner, but not for the reasons you think.”
His
admission caught me off guard, but not more than the next moment did.
His palms
caught my face, thumbs trailing down the warmth of my throat before he smashed
our lips together.
His kiss
defiled as much as it gave life.
He raped me
to the depths of my soul without ever removing a strip of my clothing.
“But that’s
where my beliefs with the church diverge.” He lips teased at the corners of my
mouth before his tongue darted out, tasting the bow of my top lip.
Oh sweet
fucking heaven.
“I happen
to believe it isn’t living if you’re not breaking a rule every now and again.”
He caught
the soft whimper on my lips with his, swallowing it instantly before his tongue
pushed past the barrier and he was sheathed in me again.
His taste,
far deadlier than I’d remembered.
“Despite
what my church may believe,” Bastien’s thumbs hooked at my shirt, the warm pads
of his fingertips sliding against my skin and cutting through my nerves like
hot butter, “I can’t renounce you.”
His palms
slid up my torso, divesting me of my shirt while one hand cupped a shiny
chalice, drips of wine already making their way between my breasts. Staining
the satin bra I wore, pooling in my navel, soaking a rebel river of red overtop
the elastic of my panties.
“I know the
taste of sin, sweet Tressa, I’ve tasted it every night in my dreams. Craving
you is a new and deadlier form of hell than the last I’d overcome.” He dropped
to his knees, the empty cup slipping to the floor and soaking his white robes
in scarlet before his tongue met my flesh in slow swipes, eyes glinting as he
held me flush to his mouth.
Soft mewls
formed on my lips as my body fell apart in his arms, limbs loose as he worked
his way up my body, tongue tasting every inch of the blessed wine from my skin
as he went.
“I am very
surely a prisoner to you, my sweet dove.”

My review- 3 Stars
This book was extremely well written and the plot and characters were fantastic. Rebel Saint was a good read, but it just wasn’t my style and I couldn’t get completely invested into this story. I read the blurb and really thought I would be super into it, but I just couldn’t get 100% behind it. I love the aspects of the forbidden romance and that is absolutely what drew me into this book. The plot was there, the characters were really good and had a lot of depth to them.

Tressa finds herself homeless and turns to St. Michaels for help. She is welcomed by Father Bastien with open arms. He is a holy man, he serves God and cares for all of Gods people. Tressa tempts him though and makes him want to lead a life of sin. The chemistry between these two characters was really good. They were fighting their attraction to one another tooth and nail. One persons cup of tea may not be another’s so please don’t let my review scare you off. Give this book a try, it may just be the one you’re dying to read!
