As Blayne Westmore tries to juggle the woman he’s married to and the woman he’s in love with, he begins to see that things aren’t as simple as he’d hoped. He has no doubt that he loves Katka Dusek, the fun-loving and passionate younger twin, but he also finds himself thinking more and more about her more serious, intelligent sister, Livie. When he finds out the truth, however, it shakes him to his core and leaves him with the most difficult decision he’ll ever have to make. Don’t miss the biggest twist yet in the penultimate installment of M.S. Parker’s latest series, Twisted Affair!

When I realized I’d slept with my wife’s twin sister, I’d thought everything was going to be over. My marriage. My agreement with my father. But my wife didn’t seem to know and I wanted to keep it that way. There was one little problem. I couldn’t seem to let things go.

Blayne Westmore has just found out that he hasn’t been sleeping with his wife, gorgeous former model Livie Dusek. Instead, he’s been sleeping with her identical twin, Katka. He knows he should break it off, but there’s something about her that draws him to her. Now he just needs to figure out what that something is. Livie’s thankful when her husband suddenly stops trying to make moves on her, but when she figures out why, she’s surprised at how much it bothers her. She knows it shouldn’t. Their marriage is business only, after all. She’s all but expected Blayne to find women to warm his bed. She just never thought it would be her sister. And she never thought she would care. Don’t miss out on book three of M.S. Parker’s steamy series, Twisted Affair.

When I proposed to Livie Dusek, I didn’t really think that she’d say yes, but I was glad she did. Marrying her would keep my inheritance secure and my dad off of my back. Then we slept together and I thought things were even better. I had no idea.

Ladies’ man and partier Blayne Westmore has been forced into marriage, but his Czech wife is smoking hot and seems to have gone back on her previous rule about no touching…or has she? Livie doesn’t know why her business-only husband has suddenly decided it’s okay to try to kiss her, or why he keeps saying that they’ve slept together. She hopes her sister Katka isn’t right that Blayne is just trying to get her into bed, but she’s determined to rebuff his advances as much as possible. Once her three years are up and she has her money, she’s done, and nothing that Blayne says will stop her. Volume two in M.S. Parker’s sexy new series is full of twists, turns and heat. Don’t miss it!

I’ve always loved my life. Women, drugs and alcohol. Three of the greatest things in the world. Then my father decided that I wasn’t living up to the high standards of our family and gave me an ultimatum. Get married or lose it all.

When Blayne Westmore screws up for the thousandth time, his father lays down the law. Blayne has to find a wife and settle down or he’ll be disowned. Twenty-three year-old Livie Dusek is a Czech immigrant working hard towards the American dream – one that doesn’t involve love. But when a handsome stranger offers her a marriage proposal and more money than she could ever dream off, she accepts, much against her sister’s wishes. Livie has just one rule for her future husband: No sex between them. Don’t miss the newest steamy series from best-selling author M.S. Parker.

Favorite Quotes:

 “Our family was distantly related to Benjamin Franklin through my paternal grandfather and my family always made sure no one forgot it.  Ashlyn had double the fun since her geriatric husband was distantly related to President Taft.  He looked like him too.”

“She was smart, but when it came to men, I thought her brain fell asleep at the wheel.”

“I knew I could never go back to being who I was.  That man was gone.  I didn’t know who I was now, but I hoped it was someone better.”

“You are far easier to love than you have ever believed.”

“Let go, my Liv.  I’ve got you.”

My Review:

A steamy tale with a main character who initially was not very likable – despite my misgivings about him, I had high hopes he would be redeemable by the end of the story, and thankfully he was.  M.S. Parker is sneaky like that.  The story is quite erotic but also intriguing and entertaining.  It was a quick read that was easy to follow, but seek out a cool room and stay hydrated, as your temperature will surely rise.

Book Review: Boss by Tara Oakes

SYNOPSIS
******This book is intended for mature audiences, over 18 years of age
.
This book is a sequel, Book 2 in the Chianti Kisses series.
.
Everybody expects something of Dom, they have his entire life. His family expects HIM to lead, provide, and support them. His company and employees expect him to keep their business successful, intact. His wife, V, expects him to be the beST man he can be.

.

And then there are the expectations of his father and his “associates.”

Dom’s father, although long past, had left unfulfilled expectations of his own. Everything he built, bled for, killed for… died for, was left in Dom’s hands.

Dom tried to change things, set things straight, atone for the sins of his father and father-in-law. But, it hasn’t been easy. Many others benefited from his business dealings, and aren’t willing to lose them so easily.

Emilio Rizzo has vowed to keep things the way they were. He’s waged a war to take full control from Dom, with no concern for the toll it will take on everyone involved. Innocents will be harmed, lives will be taken, and hard-earned progress will be lost unless Dom steps in and fights the way he was born to.

Someone will be disappointed. Will it be his family, his employees, his father, or his beloved V, when he becomes…

BOSS.

Favorite Quotes:

“They’re all wrong.  This can’t be bad.  How can something be a sin if it feels like heaven?”

“I feel anger building.  Rejection starting to fester like water on the brink of boiling.”

“’I’m here baby.  I’ll always be here.’  His words soothe me, but it’s the unspoken emotion, the fact that he says this with a bold certainty that assures me completely.”

 

My Review:

Boss was not as steamy as the first book in the series, Baby V, but provided a heaping helping of intrigue and suspense instead.  It was a quick read as I could not put it down.  And as always with Tara Oakes, Boss was well written, addicting, and involving, so much so – my body was tight with tension due to the taut story-line.  I am totally invested now and have many unanswered questions swirling around my little pea brain, book 3 cannot come soon enough.

*** UPDATE BY AUTHOR…I have some EXCITING news. I decided to write a new novel under the pen name, K.A. Hunter (will add links when they become available). I’m not hiding behind the name but this novel, and others that will follow, is more raw and definitely grittier than my Intertwined Hearts series. The first 4 chapters have been written into a short story that will appear in an anthology in February 2015 and I anticipate publishing the full novel around July 2015. Those that have read it confirm that it’s nothing like what I’ve written before and they were blown away. Can’t even tell you how happy that makes me :D
Insatiable Hunger & Will You Be My Valentine (Two Stories) by Jade C. Jamison
For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more “literary” fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today–sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light stories–but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn’t confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

A few interesting facts about Author J.S. Scott
Author J.S.Scott trained and worked for years as a Registered Respiratory Therapist before becoming an Author.  She self published in April 2012 with no experience at all. “I put together my own bad covers and edited the stories myself. (Big mistake!) I used KDP Select when I first started and offered up the stories for free, alternating the freebies. To my surprise… I actually started selling some books.”  Then she really hit it when she started working on a serial romance trilogy that readers started to follow enthusiastically — The Billionaire’s Obsession, which she eventually packaged into a “complete set” last February, selling the lot for one very low price. “I was lucky enough to have the book sell very well… well enough to hit the USA Today and NYT Bestsellers.  Since then, I’ve written complete novels that have also done well.”  All the books that she writes almost always feature an Alpha Male and have a happily ever after because she just can’t seem to write them any other way!

My Review:

As a blogger I have heard considerable buzz about most of these authors for quite some time, but until I got my hot little hands on this book file, I was only familiar with the wonderful talents of Chelle Bliss – loves me some Chelle Bliss – sigh.  Being new to the rest of these authors, I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed each tale in turn, but being true to my gal, I loved the work of Ms. Bliss best and hard.  But hold on – I now find her to be in a tie for top spot in my smut reader’s heart with my new love of Brenda Rothert!  I adored her characters and story of Healing Touch, and loved her writing, Ms. Rothert has mad skills!  I also enjoyed and appreciated the message of tolerance from Sawyer Bennett’s story, and the steamy hotness of Eden Butler, Kindle Alexander, and Toni Aleo – although I must confess, I truly despised and wanted to junk punch Ms. Aleo’s main character.  Having never been to the Big Easy, these tales seem to have started an itch, although I would rather avoid any hospital trips to Tulane Medical Center should I decide to go.

Hello and Aloha – I am Empress DJ.  I am an avid reader, crazy old cat lady, recreational swimmer, Hawaii resident, and relatively new blogger.  I started off as a guest reviewer for Andrea in 2013 after discovering the vast world of book blogs, Goodreads, and gasp – Facebook!  I love to read, but am a bit picky about what I chose to spend my free time with.  I like women’s fiction, spicy romances, cozy mysteries, some suspense, contemporary fiction, and some paranormal… but I am not really a fan of horror or zombies.  Zombies are just so tiresome… they are horrible conversationalists and only seem to want me for my brains…

First and foremost, I am a reader.  And I want to get to know our fellow readers.  Please let us know what you think.  The only thing constant in life is change.  I appreciate each of your comments, and you don’t ever need to blow smoke up my skirt!  I honestly want to know what you think, what moves you, whether you agree with my reviews or not.  And if you ever notice a big honking error – (I am sure there will be some from time to time) pllllleeeeaaazzze let me know.  I am still learning.

You can always leave comments on the blog, message us on Facebook, and/or email me directly at:
