Amazon U.S.: (free!) 


To survive they must trust each other. Only...can they?

Winter, a professional thief who can manipulate others' biologies by touch, accidentally "healed" her former partner--and former vampire--Sebastian, whom she secretly loves. Her healing created a symbiotic pairing between them that neither of them wants.

Nathanial, a sexy thousand-year-old vampire and Sebastian's ex-lover, talks Sebastian and Winter into stealing evidence that will expose all vampires to the world. But Nathanial is a puppet-master who doesn't believe in falling in love with humans, leaving Winter unsure of his real feelings for her once he seduces her, or how he feels about Sebastian, the former vampire-now-human whose life he has turned upside down once more.

But the evidence they steal is hot property.The future of all vampires is on the line and others will stop at nothing to get it, leaving Sebastian, Winter and Nathanial with no allies but each other. They must trust each other to survive. Only...can they?

WARNING: This book contains two hot, sexy alpha heroes, frequent, explicit and frank sex scenes and sexual language. It includes heart-stopping sexual scenes between the aforementioned sexy heroes, menage scenes, anal sex and the use of sex toys. Don't proceed beyond this point if hot love scenes offend you.
No vampires were harmed in the making of this novel.


This is my first time reading Tracy Coop-Pose, but as I've already downloaded book 2 (free for signing up for her newsletter) it will not be the last. I can't wait to read the next installment in this series. I think I was hook at the smokin hot cover!

I love the unique paranormal twist given to our heroine and professional thief, Winter; who falls in love with her partner in crime, super sexy vampire Sabastian, then heals him after he is injured during a job. Only to learn after the fact that she healed him from being a vampire creating a unique bond that bonds them together in a most unusual way.

Winter considers herself human when she encounters Nathanial who manipulates her into helping to find Sabastian after realizing something is wrong with him. Nathanial falls in love, and isn't one to let love out of his grasp. Even puts a ring on it very early on. Who will he love? And who will love him? You'll have to read the book to find out.

I love how the characters develop and each of their unique qualities come together to form the perfect union. Let me just say, vampire sex is hot! This was easily a 5 star rating, a definite page turner and the smexyness is off the charts! Great sex with a plot! Love it!

Ride Steady Review- Draft

 Review ~ Ride Steady (A Chaos Novel), by Kristen Ashley

Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley

Title: Ride Steady

Rating: Smiley from Millan.NetSmiley from Millan.NetSmiley from Millan.NetSmiley from Millan.NetSmiley from Millan.Net

Goodreads Link:

The ride of her life . . . Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .

Amber's Review:

“…but if she’s that girl and you’re it for her like she is for you, this will be a bump in the road, but then you’ll ride steady.”

Another stellar book by an Author who writes books about real women. I adored Carissa and loved that she wasn't completely broken, just needed someone to hear her, see her, understand her and let her be herself. I am sure that the majority of women out there can relate to that.

Joker, was worth the wait!!!  He was an amazing character who brought heat and depth into the character profiles.  He was badass, hot, sweet, kind, tender and rough all rolled up in a smoking package.   His posse of good people looking out for him during his childhood added a nice mixture of new characters.

The fact that Kristen incorporated all of the Denver characters from prior books into this one, was a wonderful and enjoyable surprise. It was great to hear a little bit about each of these hot guys and their strong women.

Bravo Kristen Ashley, another stellar book that was impossible to put down!!!!

Grey by E.L. James

Title: Grey

Author: E L James



Series Continued: yes

Amazon U.S.: Grey


See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

Reviews: (Joyce)

I didn't even realize this book was in the works until it was due to be released, and I have to admit I am one of those people who read the original Fifty Shades series over and over again, I guess you can say I am very familiar with Ms. James' work. I did stay away from chat threads regarding this book because I knew it was going to cause a lot of opinions being shared and I didn't want to be influenced.

Grey is a retelling of the Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1) from Christians point of view. Christian is the wealthy, young business man who feels he is not capable of being loved in the traditional fashion until Anastasia Steele falls into his life. Ana is a ordinary, geeky, graduating literature student who repeatedly who sees more in Christian than his beautiful face and haunted grey eyes. Anna is the perfect match for Christian, although it will take some twist and turns and help from his good friend and psychologist to see that. Will they end up together? Or will it be a cliff hanger like the first book? You will have to read to find out.

I loved the retelling of this story from Christians perspective. We get to learn more about why he is the way he is and more about his tragic start of life. His nightmares, based from true events will tear at your heart and is sure to bring tears to your eyes. One of the things you need to remember if you chose to read this book is that it is a retelling of the first story, so many of the pages, texts and paragraphs shared are exactly as the first book. I loved the text and email banter and how it was presented so it was all good for me. I think it helped to build both their characters in that it gave Ana a bigger voice in the story, Ana seems shy and almost timid when around Christian, and compared to Christian but when she emails she lets her thoughts and feelings shine.

Will I recommend this book? Absolutely! I loved it! Felt similar feelings as when I read the first book the first time.

Bravo E.L. James!!! Please hurry up with the other two POV's and then we want Elliot and Mia's stories too. Pretty please with sugar on top!!!
