Driven To Distraction Tour

Driven to Distraction is the first in Loris sizzling new Road to Love series!

When desire gets this hot, you’d better buckle up…
Mary Daniels doesn’t let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle—huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine—is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crewsfor hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona—and her trademark self-control—is slipping, and she won’t allow it.
Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time…until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all.

Review:


Driven to Distraction by Lori Foster
WOW, I haven't read a Lori title in a wee whiles, and I forgot how much I do enjoy her writing and stories.
This is a first in a new series, about Mary and Brodie. I did find the story to be a little too long and drawn out at times, its a good start to a new series that is recommendable to everyone. I look forward to see where the series goes. Overall I gave the book a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Review: Knocked-Up Cinderella

Knocked-Up Cinderella Knocked-Up Cinderella by Julie Hammerle
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I haven't read Julie Hammerle, she is a new tome author. I'm not even sure what to say, I loved the idea of this book, like I really liked the characters were older then the average character in other books we read, Erin and Ian are in there 40's knocked and confused.

I am a massive romance junkie, I love al my books with heavy plot of romance, and yet this had romance In it but It felt weird, there relationship they created was a friendship, I don't know in the beginning I felt there chemistry and then it fizzled out over the course of the book. I was just really hoping I would love this as much as I love the cover.

I think too if you are friends to lovers, at 70-80% you should be at another stage in your relationship, I don't want at 90% TWO chapters of you being together and happy, this is not for me. I cant get on board with this.

So yes this is a cute fluffy contemp, yes its got humour, yes its sexy at times but its not what I expected.

I sat down and read it from start to finish in one sitting.

2.5 Overall ratting.

Review: Whiskey Undone

Whiskey Undone Whiskey Undone by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Whiskey Undone
(Whiskey and Lies #3)
by Carrie Ann Ryan

I have to admit I haven't read this authors work in a long whiles and I was hesitant to start this as it was the 3rd and final one in the Whiskey and Lies series.

Loch and Ainsley are or have been best friends for 10 years or so, and I'm assuming that to get a better feel of that you should read book 1 and 2 in the series, but I didn't. I didn't feel lost, or if I was missing out on something. Though I think if I had read them ones I would have felt the chemistry between our two main characters more then I did when I read this one. I love that they all ready had this kick ass foundation of a friendship so moving to lovers wasn't weird.

When danger shows up from Lochs past, all he wants to do is keep who he loves safe and out of danger, Ainsley has been secretly in love with him for years so she is emotionally confused and it doesn't help when they have really hot sexy times.

I really enjoyed the suspense element to this romance. Action, and romance with the right amount of drama is a win in my book. It made me want to go and read the first two in the series.

Overall I would highly recommended, 3.5 Stars

All I Need by Jennifer Van Wyk BLOG TOUR

ALL I NEED_BT.jpg

All I Need, an all-new emotional standalone from Jennifer Van Wyk is available NOW!

All I Need_5x8 Paperback
It took me years to get over my fiancé sleeping with another woman. I thought my luck with men had finally turned around until I walked in on my new fiancé with my maid-of-honor.
I’m done with men entirely. I’m definitely old enough to know better than to let that happen to me again. Trust isn’t something I have in me to give… to anyone. At least, Not anymore.
Besides, even if I wanted to give someone my everything, I have nothing left to give. Now, if Walker could be just a tad less handsome, his relationship with his nephew not quite as sexy and his body… well, let’s not get crazy. His body is just a gift to womankind.
The moment I laid eyes on Ellie, I knew she’d be full of spit and vinegar. And why wouldn’t she be? She’d just caught her fiancé with her maid of honor – and they weren’t chatting about the upcoming nuptials.
I can’t help but push her buttons, she’s sexy as hell when she’s fired up. Or cooking dinner with Miss Polly, or… well, any time, really. Maybe having her work for me in my vet clinic wasn’t the smartest move I’ve ever made considering I can’t stop my body from aching for her.
She said she was done with men entirely, that she’s broken but I can’t help but hope that she realizes she’s All I Need.

My Review!




All I Need


All I Need
by Jennifer Van Wyk

Y'all I cant even explain to you how much I LOVED this book, and how much I love this authors stories, every time I just fall in love with the way it was written, the characters and how many feels i ended up feeling.

This book is set in the same work as all her other books, loosely connected with each other.

I discovered Jens work last year and I have been a massive fan ever since, What I adore about all her books is that the relationships are so real, and they don't have an instant relationship. She builds there friendship, there chemistry and there is a lot of wooing.

Walker, he is funny, smart, sexy, everything you will love. He is not afraid to show his emotions and boy, there is a lot of emotions in this story.
Ellie has been burned twice, and doesn't want to be burned again, but there is something about Walker and the town Liberty, that she is in.

I love that we see some of the other characters we have come to love in previous books, this book is heart-warming, you need to binge read them all. I was captivated from the first page and till the end, not once could I put it down and when I was finished all I wanted to do was return to this beautiful place the author has created.

Excerpt:

  I bound up the porch steps after parking at an angle behind her and walk through the door as I knock. Ellie comes around the corner of the kitchen, her blue eyes wide, coffee cup in her hand, pajamas still covering her body. My eyes make a trail from her head to the tips of her slipper covered bare feet. She has on a long tan sweater but the tank top and shorts underneath leave nothing to the imagination. Which, after last night, is vivid. “Is everything okay?” “Set the coffee down, Ellie.” “What?” “If you don’t want to be wearing that coffee, I’d suggest you place that cup of coffee you’re holding onto the table beside you.” She looks down at her coffee then up at me again before gently placing it down. Before she stands up straight, I make the space between us disappear, place my hands on her cheeks, and change our lives forever. The kiss isn’t anything like the chaste kiss we shared after Camilla was born. Having her work for me, seeing her every day has been the most delicious kind of torture there is. The stolen kisses and shared looks, trying not to stare at the way her chest fills out the navy blue scrubs. As my tongue plunges into her mouth, I feel the vibration of her moan. I respond with a moan of my own, wrap my arms around her lower back and pull her in close, our bodies pressing against each other. With our height difference, it’s not as if we’re some perfect fit but it doesn’t matter because it feels perfect. Her body forms to mine and I can’t help when my body reacts. I let my fingers make a slow trip down her body, our lips not separating for a single second. I brush my thumbs against the outside of her breasts and if my mouth wasn’t already busy devouring hers, I would smile. But I don’t want to waste precious seconds of time. I haven’t tasted enough of her yet. Her head tilts to the side, allowing me to deepen the kiss. I wrap my arms around her ass and lift, her legs instantly circling my hips making it so I can feel the heat of her center against my hardness. Tongues collide and lips bruise but it’s all so amazing and the hottest thing I’ve ever experienced. Well, aside from last night. I move slightly, kissing my way down her jaw until my lips find the spot just below her ear. She shivers and I smile, cataloging that little bit of information for later. “Well good morning, Walker.” At the sound of Miss Polly’s voice Ellie stiffens in my arms but I’m not having it. “That it is, Miss Polly. That it is,” I say cheerfully, not letting Ellie down no matter how much she squirms. “I’ll just go add in a few more eggs to the scramble for breakfast. Don’t mind me,” Miss Polly calls out as she walks back out of the room. “Walker!” “Ellie!” I tease, tightening my grip on her. “Would you let me down? Miss Polly is here.” “And she said not to mind her.” I move over to a chair in the corner of the room and sit down, allowing her to straddle me. Not a hardship on my part. “Morning.” I grin and lean up to kiss her on the lips again. She rolls her eyes but returns my kiss. “Morning,” she mumbles. “Grumpy, grumpy. I’d have thought you’d be much happier after a good orgasm.” “Walker, would you shush?” she whisper-shouts looking toward the kitchen where we know Miss Polly is still bustling around. I reach over to the table she set her coffee on and lift her cup to my lips, taking a sip, pleasantly surprised when I notice that she takes her coffee the same as I do with just a splash of milk, then hand it to her. She smiles, takes a big gulp then replaces the cup on the table. “By the way, I guarantee Miss Polly already knew. Nothing happens in this house she doesn’t know about.” She glares at me. “Well in that case, I hope you enjoyed our one and only time.” “Not happening. That’s something I plan on repeating. Often.” Hopefully next time there won’t be phones separating us, though. I can see the pulse in her throat pounding as she thinks about a repeat performance of our phone sex from last night. I wonder if she can feel how it affects me as well. To drive my point home, I press up against her and I can’t help but smile when she gasps. “Mm hmm. You act so tough. Admit how incredible that was.” She shrugs but won’t look me in the eye. I move her chin so she’s facing me. “Look at me, Ellie.” When I finally have her deep blue gaze on mine, I say, “That was the sexiest thing I’ve ever experienced. Second only to finding your vast sex toy collection,” I tease and she bites her lip. “You have nothing to be embarrassed about. Not with me, okay? Never with me. That was a first for me, too. It’s important to me for you to know that. And Ellie?” “Yeah?” I lean in close, my hand on the back of her neck tugs her into me and I lower my voice, my lips grazing her ear as I tell her, “I plan on reliving every single moment of last night with you very soon. But this time, we won’t be on the phone.” “Soon?” she whispers. I kiss a slow path down her neck before I let her lean back away from me, but not far. “Very soon.”
