Sunniva Dee-Regretfully Yours

Sunniva Dee is another new author for me, not just for the blog. And, before we get to anything, can I just say how awesome I think the name Sunniva is? Very, very awesome. Anyhow, back to the book, Regretfully Yours.

Silvina is out at a club with her bio partner, John, and watching the bane of her existence, Gioele, on the dance floor. When John touches her after buying her a drink, Gioele¬†rushes over and beats John down, and then takes Silvina home. Silvina and Gioele have a lot of history together. They’ve always been really tight, with an incredibly¬†tight bond. As teenagers, that bond went from very close to romantically close. That wouldn’t necessarily be a problem, except for one small, little, tiny fact. They are cousins. The family caught them when they were 16 and 17 and did everything they can to scare them into not being in love anymore. The problem is that it didn’t work out as well as they might’ve liked. While Silvina and Gioele worked hard to maintain some kind of distance, they still have that incredibly tight bond. When she moved to San Francisco to go to college, Gioele followed her.

Silvina tries to separate out her life from Gioele as much as possible, wanting to date and find other men to date. Gioele tries to listen to her, but he knows that she’s the only one for him. She’s his Ina mia. He wants no one other than her, no matter what.

And oh, there’s one more tiny little thing that can affect Silvina and Gioele. They aren’t just cousins, they are also the prince and princess of a huge mob family. Generally, that’s not a huge problem, but Gioele’s father is the head of the family, and he isn’t necessarily as sane as one could hope. That means he occasionally takes turns up the cold war between his family and another family and makes it a hot war. Just like he’s about to do any.second.now.

There’s also the fact that Gioele decides he’s going to do porn, but his brother won’t let him do it at his studio, so he goes to the competitor and films an audition reel. That shit never, ever, ever turns around and bites someone in the ass.

OK, this book was different to what I expected. I expected something darker than this. It had its dark points, and some really shitty things happen in it, but overall, it’s not that dark. I do love how much Gioele takes care of Silvina, and I love his name for her, Ina mia, my Ina. It’s such a sweet, intimate name to call the person who owns your heart. The book, for all the dark parts to it, is overall sweet, and is really good. I enjoyed every word of it, and my heart was light at the end of it.

I didn’t see the bad guy being who he was, but damn if he didn’t just go way into I’m a crazy land. The parental unit of the bad guy wasn’t far off either. I mean, they were a pair of co-dependent nutbags.

That’s all I have to say on this one. Hit up the Zon on go check it out. Happy reading!

K. Webster-Pearson

I’m sure by now you are all oh so surprised when I have a new K. Webster book on the blog. I just listen for a hint that she’s going to have a book out and then sign up for everything I can. There’s another one coming up not too long from now, too. Just enjoy the twisted mind that is K. Webster. I know I do.

Pearson is part of a 4 book set written by JD Hollyfield, Dani Rene, K. Webster, and Ker Dukey. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are all interconnected and the characters all show up in the different books. So far, Pearson is the only one I’ve read. I have JD Hollyfield’s and Dani Rene’s, and I’ll have Ker Dukey’s when it comes out next week, so I’ll be reading them all in order, back-to-back. Oh darn, I’ll have to reread Pearson. Damn.

The very first thing you are going to see when you open this book is K’s warning. It’s got to be one of the greatest and shortest warnings I’ve read, and K has written some great ones. Basically, it says that you aren’t going to like this hero. When the writer says something like that, you should probably oughta listen.

Eric Pearson is a single dad. He’s got 4 pretty good teenage boys. He’s also part owner of Four Fathers Freight, and is doing pretty damn OK. Eric believes in getting what he wants. Or rather, he believes in taking what he wants. He sees it, he wants it, he takes it, and bedamned to anyone in his way. He will run them over, friend, enemy, innocent bystander. Right now, what he wants is the very beautiful young woman who is playing around in his swimming pool. Her name is Rowan.

Rowan is on the very verge of turning 18, has a father who treats her like a little girl, and a boyfriend. And did I mention the fact that her boyfriend, Brock, happens to be one of Eric’s sons? And that all 3 of his other sons are enamored with her? That’s not going to stop Eric though. He’s been waiting for her to turn 18 for the past 2 years, and now that she’s about to, he’s going to get her, no matter who he has to destroy to get there.

Rowan has been very aware of Eric for some time, but she’s happy being Brock’s girlfriend. They’ve gotten close and fooled around some, but never had full on sex. After her 18th birthday, where her father gave her a dollhouse, thank you very much, she sneaks next door to Brock’s and is going to get it on with him right up until his dad busts in the door. He kicks Brock out of his own room and points out to Rowan that she’s 18, Brock is 17 and if she does anything with him, she could go to jail, but he’s more than happy to punish her now. And he does.

OK, this is the time we all know is coming. I love Eric. I hate Eric. It depends on the page. He’s a fucking asshole all the time, so that part doesn’t change. He blows very hot and cold with Rowan at first, and that kind of really pisses me off. I know, what can I say. I’d still fuck him. He’s just not really a nice guy. But K writes him very well. I expect it’s hard to write an asshole as a hero. Not that I really think of him as a hero, but you get my drift.

I don’t think that I really have any spoilers on this one. It’s a pretty short read, so go check it out.

K. Webster-Renner’s Rules

K. Webster has taken us back to my favorite naughty metropolis, Taboo Town. I’m sure that she has a better name for that town than that, but that’s what I call it in my head, and if you’ve read any of the stories, you’ll know why I call it that. The characters in her books try really hard to break every single taboo that they can. And I get to enjoy watching them do it.

The nice thing about these stories, other than the fact that they are truly, truly filthy, is that they are a quick read, so if you are needing a super quick, super dirty read, then one of her little taboo treats is your dirty martini.

Today’s book is Renner’s Rules. Back in high school, did you have a crush on a teacher? Well, that’s basically what happens here, with a lovely K. Webster twist.

Back in the day, Adam Renner wasn’t a high school principal. He was a wet behind the ears 19 year old in the military. In an attack, he almost died, but was saved by his friend Mateo Bonilla, and he left the military. Adam decided to follow in his mother’s footsteps and go into education and eventually became the principal of the local high school.

Meanwhile, in Miami, Mateo was happily married with a lovely little girl. He was having a good life until his wife died. Then he pulled away from his daughter, Karelma. When he’s told that she’s fucking and drugging her way through life, Mateo calls Adam and asks him to let Elma come to live with him and go to his school. Against his better judgment, Adam agrees. After all, Mateo saved his life.

Neither Elma or Adam know what to expect, but they end up getting saddled with each other and trying to figure out how to share a small house when they both think the other one is pretty smoking hot.

Like I said, fillllllthy. I love K’s version of filthy books, just in case you haven’t figured that out. I mean, this is only the what 4th K. Webster book I’ve review in the past few weeks? Anyway, there’s a lot of hot sexy times, a lot of romance, some conflict, and some really fucking stupid high school kids. It’s a great read.

Not a whole lot of spoilers, mostly because it’s short and the taboo treats like this aren’t real plot heavy. I mean, there is some plot, but we aren’t talking like some of K’s other books. So, not a lot for under here.

I really wanted to smack the shit out of that one high school because that’s bullshit to do in the first place. I’m pretty sure he didn’t know how Adam would react, but that was still some serious bullshit.

So, go check this out on Amazon and get your dirty, dirty fix. Happy reading!

K. Webster-Mr. Blakely

I have the truly mad and deep K. Webster love, as evidenced by my K. Webster collection on my Kindle. I am working really hard on owning everything she’s written. I have my overall favorite of hers, but generally, my favorite book of hers is whatever I’ve read last. So that means my current favorite is Mr. Blakely.

Mr. B brings us back into K’s little Taboo Town. I don’t know its real name because she’s never given it one that I can remember, so that’s what I call it in my head. There’s a good reason for calling that. Each of the books covers some kind of taboo, and they are all so very good. The fun thing is that while each of these books is a standalone, they are all interconnected. It’s fun to figure out who the various characters are and how they connect up to other books. I won’t point out who the interconnected characters are in this one so you can have your own fun finding them. If you haven’t read the other books, I can point you in the right directions.

But, back to Mr. B. Quinn Blakely’s life has gotten very complicated. His ex-wife ran away to Hollywood with her trainer so that she could be a movie star. She left him with their twin boys and he now has custody of them. But, he works long hours and he needs someone to help out. He can’t run the boys all over the place and get them everywhere they need to go. So, he needs a babysitter. He talks to a friend and gets the name of Ava Prince.

Ava is an 18 year old young woman who is trying to finish high school with the best grades possible and earn enough money so that she can go to Paris with her school’s French group. When Quinn calls her and offers her a job, she agrees. The only problem is that he doesn’t exactly tell her what her job entails. She thinks that she’s going to do some clerical type stuff and some tutoring. Yeah, there’s tutoring involved, but no clerical stuff, instead, she’s surprised to find out that she’s been hired as a nanny/babysitter for his sons.

OK, you know what time it is. I love these dirty little treats. I love reading them. They are quick and filthy. They are also HEAs. They crowd the dark romance line but are more like gray instead of dark. The reason that I stick them in my dark romance section is the taboo bits, other than that, they are just filthy, filthy, erotica. And there is not one thing wrong with that. I will read and reread and read them again, because they are just that good. I mean, K writes so well to begin with, and then these stories are just so… Yeah. Go out and grab this one.

Quinn took a minute to warm up to. He’s kind of hot and cold, and it really frustrated Ava. I mean, it can be hard enough for an experienced person to pick up on all the nuances of a relationship, let alone an 18-year-old who hasn’t ever had any kind of relationship. Of course, it’s not her fault that Quinn is hot and cold. He’s just trying to get himself under control and distance himself. Yeah, how well do you think that’s going to work?

The things that Quinn does for Ava are pretty awesome, and the epilogue made me really, really happy.

OK, that’s all for today. Hop on over to ‘Zon and pick up your copy of this Taboo Town treat and check it out for yourself. Happy reading!
