{Kati Mini #Review} Erotic Contemporary Romance: Best Man With Benefits by Samanthe Beck

BEST MAN WITH BENEFITS by Samanthe Beck
Series: Wedding Dare #4
Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Format: PDF
Length: 149 pages
Publisher: Entangled: Brazen (June 9, 2014)

How far can one favor go…

Logan McCade arrives at his best friend’s wedding overworked and in desperate need of a vacation, only to discover his best man duties have been…expanded. He must coax Colton’s sister out of her shell, or risk her hiding in her room all week. Logan figures he can handle one introverted bridesmaid, but he’s not expecting how much he enjoys “handling” Sophie…or how much she enjoys being handled.

Socializing has never been web designer Sophie Brooks’s strong suit, but she’s determined to shed her wallflower image and embrace the “New Sophie”—a feat made easier with the supremely sexy Logan McCade tempting her to explore all her forbidden fantasies. If she’s not careful, she just might fall for the best man.

Sophie’s sweet, sexy, and delectably awkward demeanor brings much-needed calm to Logan’s hectic life. With the nuptials only days away, Logan is forced to face the possibility that his favor to a friend might have become something else entirely…and that he’s not willing to let Sophie go. Ever.

{Chanpreet #Review} Contemporary Romance: Crazy Thing Called Love by Molly O'Keefe

CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE by Molly O'Keefe
Series: Crooked Creek Ranch #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: ebook via Netgalley
Length: 368 pages
Publisher: Bantam (January 29, 2013)

Dallas TV morning show host Madelyn Cornish is poised, perfect, and unflappable, from her glossy smile to her sleek professionalism. No one knows that her iron will guards a shattered heart and memories of a man she’s determined to lock out. Until that man shows up at a morning meeting like a bad dream: Billy Wilkins, sexy hockey superstar in a tailspin—still skating, still fighting, and still her ex-husband.

Now the producers want this poster child for bad behavior to undergo an on-air makeover, and Billy, who has nothing to lose, agrees to the project. It’s his only chance to get near Maddy again, and to fight for the right things this time around. He believes in the fire in Maddy’s whiskey eyes and the passion that ignites the air between them. This bad-boy heartbreaker wants a last shot to be redeemed by the only thing that matters: Maddy’s love.

{Lisa #Review} Parody Romance: Strum by Cari Silverwood

STRUM by Cari Silverwood
Series: The Squirm Files #2
Genre: Parody Romance
Format: eARC from author
Length: 98 pages
Publisher: Cari Silverwood (June 19, 2014)

Yet another erotic parody where a light is shone on all the dirty, crazy, squishy things dwelling in your romances.

When a stag party goes terribly wrong, Virginia Chaste loses her memory of all the best bits of her fiancé, Karl whatsisface. She awakens with her tongue stuck to the castle floor, a suspicion that someone kissed her, a missing fiancé, and no idea what will happen next. Luckily Dangerous Bob can show her the way.

All she has to do is join Zagan Grimm, rock star and demon, he of the radioactive cock, to retrieve the ultimate sex book, the Necrosexi-texmexicon, from the depths of the Zon, then she can get her fiancé back, even if she'd rather sell his castle and make a million dollars.

Then she absolutely has to remember not to have a spectacular, tentacular ménage with Zagan and Karl whatsisface.

With so many things to remember, Virginia may forget the last one.

Yes, a big, fat warning to all those with pristine, well-vacuumed minds: Here Be Tentacles.

{Jamie #Review} Erotica: The Saint by Tiffany Reisz

THE SAINT by Tiffany Reisz
Series: The Original Sinners #5 (The White Years)
Genre: Erotica
Format: ebook via Netgalley
Length: 448 pages
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA (June 24, 2014)

In the beginning, there was him.

Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they're apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can't be right.

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

The Novel Tease Blog Tour: Interview with Tiffany Reisz, author of The Saint + #Giveaway (US)


We are pee-in-our-pants excited to have Tiffany Reisz stop by today to share her newest book in The Original Sinners series. We've been waiting a long time to THE SAINT and now it's here!!!

Meet Tiffany:
Tiffany Reisz lives with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

If she couldn’t write, she would die.
