"Hourglass" by K.S.Smith and Megan C. Smith (REVIEW)

Title: "Hourglass"

Authors: K.S.Smith and Megan C. Smith

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 17, 2014

Best friends since birth, Brooke Reid and Savannah Prescott, spend their days working together at top fashion magazine Hourglass, while enjoying all that the Denver nightlife has to offer – but sharing a man – no way. 

One of Denver’s most eligible bachelors, Luke Wellington, can have any woman he wants and he knows it. Putting his player skills to the test, he destroys a friendship and makes two women fall in love with him as he sits back and enjoys the best of both worlds. 

Brooke Reid is a woman looking for her happily ever after, and the day she literally ran in to him, she thought she’d found it. Charming, charismatic, a true gentleman – what more could she ask for? Things are going perfectly until her best friend struts in the elevator and claimed his lips right in front of her. 

Savannah Prescott is interested in one thing, having a good time with every single man Denver has to offer. Being tied down is too much of a bore for her free spirited ways. Or so she thinks, but when her best friend starts dating her Friday night fling, she realizes she may be ready to turn in her game card and settle down into a real relationship. 

When both girls come to the realization that they are after the same man, it means all-out war. Best friends until the end, or at least until him

*** Received a complimentary copy of "Hourglass" in exchange for an honest review***

"Hourglass" is about BFF's who are polar opposites. Brooke is your typical good girl. Does everything right. Type of girl who made to to be in the house with the white picket fence, husband, 2.5 kids, and dog. While Savannah on the other hand is your free spirited party girl, who doesn't mind a lusty one night stand two.  As different as they are they have both maintain an amazing friendship, until they both fall for Luke Wellington. This man plays these two ladies against each other and puts a major strain on their relationship to say the least.
I absolutely loved reading "Hourglass". I loved the way fact that it was written from both Brooke's and Savannah's POV and the fact that they are so opposite from each, made it even that more interesting. 
K.S. and Megan wrote an amazing story. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to read "Hourglass" as it is different from any book I've read. A love triangle, between involving two best friends...... great story line! I highly recommend this one. 5 STARS!!!!!

"Throttled : City and Suzy Novella (Men of Inked Series 2.5)" by Chelle Bliss (REVIEW)


Amazon US: 

Barnes & Noble 


Throttled Synopsis: She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo. All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after. He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others. City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever. Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss. Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?

"Throttled" is the story of City and Suzy, and all of the events that lead up to their upcoming nuptials. It begins with a Thanksgiving dinner and ends with a Christimas dinner. There's lots of time spent with the Gallo family. I absolutely LOVE the Gallos. They're hilarious and loving. 
City and Suzy, of course, are still an extremely HOT couple. Their scenes, especially the elevator scene, was hot enough to make my iPad explode. LOL! I also LOVE, the sarcasm, and "insiders", and sexual innuendos that are thrown back and forth between the two, when Mama Gallo's around.

Once again Chelle Bliss does it again! This book came just in time, as I was craving a "City Fix", like you wouldn't believe. As sexy, and hot this book was at times, it seemed to also encompass family. I fell in love with Gallos. They are witty, hilarious, loving, and welcoming. I loved that the characters from each of Chelle's books remain consistent. As much as Suzy's mouth changed, with the use of colorful language, she still is that nervous, control! The book was so many things, beautiful, sexy, endearing, and a page turner. To be a novella, it's chock full of goodness, and amazingly enough, it's a 100 page teaser for "Resist Me"! I cannot wait for that one. 5 STARS! This novella is amazing!

"Wrapped In Shadows" by Lisa Eugene (REVIEW POST)

One night of shadows. One night of bliss. One night of evil.

Katherine Regina Vandercamp has everything. Wealth. Beauty. Social standing. She’s the heiress to the Vandercamp fortune and engaged to the man of her dreams. One night it all shatters…

Finding her fiancé with another woman, she is distraught and makes a reckless decision to go with a friend to a sex club. Needing total anonymity, she has sex with a stranger in a room of total darkness, a sensuous cocoon of silky shadows. She has no idea who this man is or what he looks like. But it is in the shadows she finds solace. In the shadows she finds bliss.
She can’t forget this stranger’s touch, his taste, his scent. He infiltrates her dreams and holds her thoughts and body captive. But had she made a false assumption about her fiancĂ©? Had he really been unfaithful? She regrets her hasty actions and is tormented by guilt. She is determined to marry the man she loves and forget her stranger.
Sinister events unfolded at the sex club. There was a gruesome murder and her stranger has been charged with the crime. Katie knows he’s innocent because she was with him at the time of the murder. She is shocked to find that he’s not a stranger after all. Will she reveal her horrible secret? Will she besmirch the Vandercamp name? Will she risk losing the man who has her heart to save the man who’s touched her soul?

Will coming forward put her in danger? Her life is in turmoil. All because of that one night.

A night that changed everything…

From the moment the book began I was all in . I absolutely LOVED this story. I've read nothing like it before. Luke is ALL ALPHA and the chemistry between he and Katie is off the charts!!!!!.  The scenes in "Wrapped In Shadows" are salaciously steamy and keep you on edge. The ending was absolutely perfect. I was so happy for Katie. Definitely a reccommened red, 5 STARS.
*** I recieved a complmentary copy of "Wrapped In Shadows" in exchange for a honest review"

Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn't get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.

When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance.
