Review: Romantic Behavior by L.A. Witt & Cari Z (Bad Behavior #4)

Note: This ARC was provided by Riptide Publishing in exchange for an honest review. “I love you, Darren.” He smirked. “I know.” “Shut up.” And just because I could, I kissed my husband again. Romantic Behavior is the fourth and (gulp!) final book in the Bad Behavior romantic suspense series from the wonder duo that are L.A. Witt and Cari Z. Yes. This is the series ender that I was both excited and anxious over. Think bittersweet, folks, because this series was, hands down, one of the best for 2017. Yes, yes, I know that books three and four are to be released in January 2018 (two weeks apart, mind you!), but I read them in the closing days of this year, so I'm counting them as part of my year-end list of best, top, and favorite series. This is one of those series wherein you're sad that it's coming to its inevitable end, but you heave a sigh of relief exactly because it leaves you both wanting and satisfied. Add to that the fact that Detectives Andreas

Book Spotlight: Jared's Fulfillment by Riley Hart

Jared's Fulfillment (Jared & Kieran #2) by Riley Hart Date Released: December 1, 2017 About Jared's Fulfillment Kieran My relationship with Jared has lasted too long. He's mesmerizing, beautiful in his devotion, pure in his need. He reaches parts of me I thought no longer existed, places I'd never known were there. His submission is a gift. His cries of pleasure and pain call to the most primal parts of me. I want to inhale him, own him, mark him as mine. He's my boy and I need to be his Daddy, but my fear holds me back. I'll fail him like I've failed everyone else I've loved. Before that happens, I'll walk away. Jared I've never known security, love, or true pleasure before Kieran. With every touch, every command, every second of blissful, torturous pain, my heart grows and my soul is at peace. He protects me, spoils me, gives me what I need. Still, in some ways, he's closed off and won't let me in. But Kieran&

Review: Jared's Evolution & Jared's Fulfillment by Riley Hart (Jared & Kieran #1-#2)

Note: These ARCs were provided by the author via Michelle Slagan in exchange for an honest review. Riley Hart isn't a new-to-me author, having fallen in love with her Blackcreek and Broken Pieces series at the beginning of 2016. Since then, I've read several of her other books, as well as a few of her releases under her other name, Nyrae Dawn. So, I know what to expect when it comes to a Riley Hart novel...until she unleashed upon her fans and readers a brand new collection that pushed her into new territory. The Desires Unleashed collection kick off with the Jared & Kieran series, which is comprised of Jared's Evolution and Jared's Fulfillment . If you're expecting hearts and flowers and whole lot of fluff, prepare yourselves because while these two novels may have romance, they've got a whole lot more kink, and I'm not talking about mere spanking or tying of wrists either. This is erotica and it's the unapologetic kind, which I much prefer,

Release Blitz: Bad Dad by Sloane Howell
