SYNOPSIS:

Abbi Haas likes them big, bad, and out of her bed the next morning. So when a smoking hot firefighter shuts down a possessive ex by pretending to be her boyfriend, she’s happy to play along—and stay for the no-strings-attached sex under the stars. But her knight with bulging biceps had better not think she’s some damsel in distress. She’ll handle her ex like she does everything: on her own.

Wildland firefighter Tyler McCall is supposed to be taking a break from danger. First step to having fun: pick up a sexy stranger by pretending he’s her man. Too bad his fake girlfriend is also his new coworker…and their little white lie has already spread. Tyler knows he should walk away before he gets burned. But he can’t stay out of trouble, and there’s no way he’s letting her go.

EXCERPT #4

He was twelve hundred miles from L.A. In a bar with a beautiful stranger who wanted to go home with him. If he fucked this up for himself, he had no doubt Scotty would come back from the dead just to kill him.

“Live a little!” Scott used to say, and Tyler would wave him away. But this was different. August nineteenth flashed through his head. His end date.

There was no possibility of getting serious now. This was just a chance for some fun. And it had been so, so long since he’d let himself have any fun. He left a twenty on the bar for an extra appreciative tip as he followed Abbi out of the bar.

“Where do you want to go?” he asked.

“Out of here,” she said.

“Okay.”

She looked at him, the trace of a smile on her lips. “You don’t talk much, do you?”

“Am I supposed to be here for talking?”

A burst of laughter rose up from across the parking lot. Russ and his buddies had come outside to smoke under a streetlamp.

“Shit,” Abbi said, the light in her eyes darkening. “You-know-who is still here.”

There was only one thing to do. Tyler turned and pressed her against the side of a car, covering her body with his.

“Good thing you have a boyfriend,” he said. A boyfriend who didn’t want to wait another second to start acting like one.

He knew he shouldn’t be getting caught up like this. He should have gone straight to the rental house, alone like he deserved. But she hooked her fingers through his belt loops and pulled his hips into hers.

And then he stopped waiting, stopped thinking, stopped talking himself out of what felt right. He kissed her hard until his mind went blank.

#Review of Sweet Surrender by Naima Simone! @Naima Simone @naimasimoneauthor

Blurb:

Killing the messenger is frowned upon. Okay, then… What about laying the messenger on the nearest flat surface and making her scream with pleasure?

From the moment Hayden Reynolds approaches Griffin Sutherland in the local, Florida dive bar, all he can think about is fisting her dark curls and stroking those gorgeous curves. But hell would freeze over before she allowed him to touch her because she’s the woman he left behind five years earlier. And now she’s there to deliver a message—an ultimatum—from his estranged father. Blackmail forces Griffin, black sheep of his powerful Texas family, back home to play nice. But the terms of his bargain say nothing about not satisfying his need for the woman he’s never forgotten…never stopped wanting…

Hayden is no longer the naive girl who once fiercely loved a golden Sutherland and believed he and a maid’s daughter could live happily ever after. Griffin broke her all those years ago, but she forced herself to pick up the pieces and move on. Now he’s back in Texas, acting the part of the proper, dutiful son. But there’s nothing proper about the detailed—dirty—descriptions of how he wants to touch her…take her… Though her body heats every time he’s near, she refuses to surrender to his special brand of passion. Griffin may have returned home, but he’s leaving again. And this time he won’t take her heart with him…

As most know, I read a lot of trope romances and this is the dirtiest, friends to lovers/childhood friends to lovers/second chance book I’ve ever read.  And I mean that in a good way, too.  Ms. Simone never ceases to amaze me with her creativity in scenes and not only the sex but also the emotional part of it, too.  You really feel for Hayden in her love/hate for Griffin throughout the book.  Oh yes, it could also be an enemies to lovers trope, too.  Personally, I wouldn’t put it in that category.  Griffin NEVER hated her and Hayden just hated how it ended all those years ago.

Hayden is such a strong character.  Her only weakness is Griffin and with good reason.  He is definitely sex on a stick but there is more to him than meets the eye.  He’s caring, sweet and above all, will not cow down to his father, who will definitely NOT win Father of the Year.  Yuck and just keep it in your pants.  Yes, Griff’s father is a big pile of crap and he knows it.  I’m very interested to see if Ms. Simone writes more this family because I would like to see Mr. Sutherland get a big ole’ slap upside his head for all his dirty dealings.  Governor  Seriously?  In Texas?  I live in Texas.  Trust me, he wouldn’t make it out the primaries but I would love to see him try.

The one secondary character that stood out for me was Griff’s older brother, Josh.  The golden child, the heir apparent but he also saw the love that Griffin and Hayden had for each other.  His scene with Hayden at the end of the book is sweet, realistic and powerful.  I immediately liked him and would definitely read his book.  😉  Hint, hint.

While this book is on the short side, don’t discount it and not read it.  Ms. Simone packs a lot in her stories and I always leave satisfied.  *wink wink*  I’ve read all of her Entangled books and this ranks up there with them.  Ms. Simone never disappoints and she puts a spin on some tried and true tropes and makes them her own.

ARC #Review of Undone, Uninhibited! Series, Part 3 of 3 by Lauren Hawkeye w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @entangledpub @entangledpublishing @missriki @laurenhjameson

UNDONE

by Lauren Hawkeye
Uninhibited, #3
Publication Date: July 17, 2017
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Scorched, Serial, Contemporary, Erotic, Romance

BUY:

SYNOPSIS:

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn may have only had a couple of days with bodyguard Jasper Benjamin, but it was enough to completely lose her heart to him. When one suspect after another proves their innocence, the duo find their time running out. After a violent showing from her stalker, Cari is ready for it all to be over, safe in Jasper’s arms. If she makes it out alive, will he feel the same way about her?

 

Excerpt #4:

“You seem restless,” I said after a moment.

“I am,” Jasper said. “I don’t like this waiting around.”

“We should have gone back to my room,” I said. “If you want our guy to make a move, that is.”

“No, it’s not that,” Jasper said. “This is necessary. Getting away from the situation, getting perspective. We’ll get a bird’s-eye view of everything going on, and in the end, that’s how we’re going to beat this. It’s necessary, I just don’t like it.”

The minutes ticked by. Jasper cleaned his gun until it was spotless, then reassembled and holstered it. A clock hanging in the kitchen counted the seconds. The fire in the stove crackled away, the temperature in the room rising in increments.

Jasper cleared his throat, looked at me, glanced away. He tapped his foot against the floor, drummed his fingers on the arm of the chair.

Seeing him so agitated was strange. This was a man who could stand sentry for hours on end without so much as blinking an eye, and yet I could tell the lack of activity, the seclusion, was driving him a little bit crazy.

“I spy with my little eye something…green.” I batted my eyelashes at him when he turned to look at me, a hint of incredulity on his features. “What? I’m bored.”

“My T-shirt,” he replied drily, striding to the window and peering through the slit in the curtains. “Trust me, you’ll never beat me at that game. I see everything.”

“Arrogant much?” He didn’t reply; I sighed. “I have some cards in my purse. Want to play Go Fish?”

He huffed out a breath.

“Snap?”

No change.

“Strip poker?”

Finally, a flicker of interest, a change in the stiff lines of his posture.

“Aha.”

Looking back, away from the window, he pinned me with that intense stare of his.

“Aha, what?” But his gaze swept over me, top to bottom. My skin heated as he looked, and suddenly I wasn’t feeling so playful.

“I thought of something we can do to pass the time.” Sinking my teeth into my lower lip, I twisted my fingers in the hem of my T-shirt. “Something that might interest you a bit more.”

He turned fully away from the window; the resulting rush of blood through my veins made me dizzy, leaving me suddenly shy.

“Go on.” Crossing his arms over his chest, he leaned back against the rough-hewn wooden wall, watching.

Waiting.

It’s over.  It CAN’T be over.  I need more of this couple.  I need more Jasper and Cari.  Hell, I need more Jackson, too.  With or without Jasper and Cari.  I just fell in love with this serial.  There is a lot more action and not much sex in the final part.  We finally get to know who has been stalking Cari and why.  I kinda figured it out but it wasn’t until the final climax that it all came together for me.  It made sense and I really liked how Ms. Hawkeye never ONCE even hinted at who it was.  I kept thinking that it was the sexist pig but in the end, I was wrong.

I’m glad that I took a chance with this serial.  I found that even though I had all the parts at one time, I really liked it.  In fact, I’ve re-read it already.  Don’t miss out on a wonderful story just because it’s a serial.  I loved the suspense element that ran through the book.  Jasper and Cari are a great couple and Jackson, my Jackson.  I will just say that I need more of him, like NOW!

Celebrity archaeologist Cari Dunn is so over the Georgia heat, the red tape at her dig site, and the threatening messages left on her motel door. She just wants to dig, and the network just wants to keep her safe—with a bodyguard. She can’t complain. Jasper Benjamin radiates raw masculinity that penetrates her to the core and ignites passion she’s never felt. Too bad for him, she’s not going to be easy to handle.

ABOUT LAUREN HAWKEYE

New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
