Exquisite Trouble by Ann Mayburn

Exquisite Trouble by Ann Mayburn

Before I met Smoke I'd never been kissed, really kissed, by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart.

I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister who is engaged to the club’s President and the schemes of my even crazier mom who only cares about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he’s everything that I should be afraid of. He's the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I’m something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love, but needs him more than her next breath.

Not that my feelings matter, because if we don't find my mother soon, the only thing I'll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.

Star Rating: Five Stars

Holy Hell's MC! This story is leaving a trail of wet panties behind it! ^_^ I've never been a big fan of Biker stories, but Ann has always had a way of changing my mind, and boy did she ever!!! 

  It's even written in first person perspective, which is something you don't find very often because not a lot of authors can do it well. And boy did Ann do it well *waggles eyebrows*

   The intrigue of not knowing where Swan's mom or sister is, and the added over whelming presence of Smoke really makes for a knock out story. You literally have to keep tapping the screen to turn the page to find out what happens next.

   My only complaint is that it ends ubruptly, lol! I wanted more, more Smoke, more Swan, ...just MORE!!!  

    Bbbuuutttt! We have to wait a little bit for the next lively installment in this epic series, be on the look out peeps, because this will rock your socks!

Blog Tour and Review for Business Pleasures by Lia Davis

Business Pleasures (Pleasures of the Heart Book 1)

Lia Davis

Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Heat level: 5 Flames

        Aimee Monroe never considered dating her boss. She needs a new beginning, not a big mistake. However, when the handsome, business lawyer, Kenton McDonnell, ask her to a dinner date with a new client and his wife, she finds it hard to say no. After one incredible night with Kenton, her attempt for a fresh start is ripped away when she returns home to find her abusive ex-husband waiting for her.

       Kenton has wanted Aimee since the day she walked into the interview. Now he has the chance to make her his and nothing or no one is going to stand in his way. Especially not the ex-husband newly released from prison who has revenge in his sights.

Excerpt 2:

     “It makes me uncomfortable.”
    Grace tsked and fisted her hands over the black satin dress in her lap. “Because that bastard conditioned you to believe you were nothing to everyone but him.”
    Aimee dropped her shoulders. Her sister was right. Every day of their marriage Roger repeatedly reminded her that no one could love her like he did. When she tried to look sexy for him, he’d accuse her of sleeping around. Then proceed to tear down what little self-esteem she managed to cobble together.
    Grace wrapped an arm around her and squeezed. “You’re better than you give yourself credit for. It’s okay to feel good, build your confidence, and be the beautiful person you are inside and out. You’re free to be yourself and be desired.”
     A lump formed in Aimee’s throat. It’d been a little more than five years since Roger’s incarceration. Besides, he would be in prison for a long time for trying to kill her. He couldn’t touch her, couldn’t make her feel inadequate anymore.
     Straightening her spine and gathering courage, Aimee stood and took the black silky dress from her sister and proceeded to put it on. The soft fabric slid over her skin like a lover’s caress. When Grace rushed over and zipped up the dress, it felt like it was made for her.
Grace let out a sigh, then a fake sniff. “My baby sister looks so pretty.”
     Aimee rolled her eyes and stepped in front of the full length mirror, then gasped. Not pretty, the reflection in the glass could only be described as gorgeous. The dress appeared tailored to her figure, showing off her modest curves and her more-than-a-handful breasts. “I can’t wear this to dinner.”
         “Why not?”
     The woman in the mirror wasn’t her. She appeared confident and whole—alive and ready to take on the world. Something Aimee wasn’t sure she was ready for. She turned to face her sister. “It’s a business meeting.”
     Grace pursed her lips, placed her hands on Aimee’s shoulders, and whirled her around to face the mirror. Grace hugged Aimee from behind and rested her chin on her shoulder. “This isn’t just a business meeting. You know as well as I do, the Camptons are personal friends of Kenton and the whole firm. Plus, I’ve seen the way your boss looks at you.”
     A spark of hope mixed with a tinge of fear settled in her belly, intensifying the already ill feeling this business-date had caused. “He doesn’t look at me.”

Lia Davis is the author of the bestselling shifter series, Ashwood Falls, a mother to two young adults and three kitties, a wife to her soul mate, and co-owner to Fated Desires Publishing, LLC.

She ventured into the world of writing and publishing in 2008 and loves it more than she imagined. Writing is stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world that she created, leaving real life where it belongs.
Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.

Star Rating: Four Stars

  Lia never fails to amaze me in her story telling abilities. She continues to bring out issues that most leave by the way side, never touching because they can often times be touchy subjects. 
    Abuse, rape, and many others.
   I really liked this story and how it brought a woman,  who had been beaten down and conditioned to believe that she was less than nothing, out of her shell and turned her into a beautiful butterfly. 
   It really touched a special place in me because for the longest time I believed that I was ugly. That because of my disease (Cystic Fibrosis) that I wouldn't find 'The One". My husband proved me wrong, God love that man <3
   My only complaint was that some parts seemed a little off, and didn't really fit with the rest of the book. But other than that I really liked this book and I can't wait to read more from this wonderful author!

A year after Tabby Nolan's sister vanished from the Lake Michigan shore with her boyfriend, Liam, Tabby visits the spot where the two were last seen-- and finds herself pulled into the crumbling world of Avalon.

Since his disappearance, Liam has been trapped in the mythical land, with no link to the world he knew. Now, their shared memories of Tabby's missing sister are all they can cling to as Avalon dies around them.

But Tabby doesn't want to be a replacement for her sister, and her growing attachment to Liam feels like a betrayal. As Avalon fades around them, Liam and Tabby must rely on each other-- or be lost with the ancient kingdom forever.

Albion’s Circle: The Deepest Cut
Jessica Jarman

For nineteen years, Anna has been plagued by dreams of lives lived only in legend. Finally free from the family that believed her hopeless and worthless, she’s ready to start her life over—alone.

When Anna meets an enigmatic stranger claiming to be the legendary wizard Merlin, she is forced to question the very reality she’s struggled to accept. With the mythic figures from her dreams intruding on her waking life, Anna learns that she’s been reborn to fight an ancient evil alongside King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

Caught in an ages old conflict, Anna is the key to stopping a dark magic that will destroy the world—and Merlin wants to make sure that this time, Anna isn’t alone.

A Choice Fit For A Queen
Jenny Trout
writing as
Abigail Barnette

For perpetual overachiever Madison Lane, a summer studying Arthurian mythology in the Welsh countryside with professor Thomas Evans is a dream come true, and the adventure of a lifetime.

Of course, the enormous crush Madison developed on the professor after a semester of his lectures at U of M has absolutely nothing to do with her desire to learn more about the enduring legend of Camelot. At least, that’s what she’s telling her parents.

When Madison meets fellow student Rhys Crewe, sparks fly, throwing her plans for wild fling with Professor Evans completely out of whack—as do her unexpectedly complicated feelings for Thomas. With tales of Arthur and Lancelot haunting her every waking moment, Madison has to make the most difficult choice of her life.

Jessica Jarman is an author, blogger, and rather obsessive fangirl. Having grown up in Upper Michigan and currently living in Minnesota, she is a Midwestern girl through and through. And wouldn’t have it any other way.

When Jessica isn't working to get words on the page, she passes the time with her amazing husband and four children, attempting to be crafty (and failing miserably), squeeing uncontrollably over her favorite shows or curling up with a good book. 

Bronwyn Green is an author, blogger and compulsive crafter. She lives Michigan with her husband, two sons and three somewhat psychotic cats. When not frantically writing, she can be found helping in her youngest son’s classroom or binge-watching Netflix while working on her latest craft project.

Abigail Barnette (Jenny Trout) is a writer, blogger, and funny person. She has written award winning and bestselling erotic romance as Abigail Barnette. Writing as Jennifer Armintrout, she made the USA Today bestseller list with Blood Ties Book One: The Turning.
