Too Hard to Handle

Too Hard to Handle is Julie Ann Walker's 8th book in her Black Knights Inc series and I have to say, I've been wondering if Dan was going to get a story. I am really pleased with how his story went. The one thing that I found confusing was Dan's deceased wife and his new love interest have similar names (Penni and Patti). Dan and Penni's story is filled with loss, but that loss leads to healing and I don't think these characters could have been as perfect for each other as they are if they hadn't gone through that loss. I loved watching the chemistry between Dan and Penni and the humor that has been in all of the previous BKI books was present in this one. Dan and Penni get their HEA, but there is still a part of the story that wasn't resolved and I'm hoping that Ozzy's story will help resolve or at least make progress with that story line. Having this open story line in no way took away from the HEA, but it did help leave a starting point for the next BKI book. I give this book a solid 5 stars and can't wait for more from the BKI series and Julie Ann Walker.


"The Man" is back.

Dan "The Man" Currington is back in fighting form with a mission that takes him four thousand miles south of BKI headquarters, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. He's hot on the trail of a rogue CIA agent selling classified government secrets to the highest bidder, when Penni DePaul arrives on the scene. Suddenly the stakes are higher, and keeping Penni safe becomes Dan's number one priority.

And this time she's ready.

A lot has changed since former Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul last saw Dan. Now a civilian, she's excited about what the future might hold. But before she can grab onto that future with both hands, she has to tie up some loose ends-namely, Dan Currington, the man she just can't forget. And a secret that's going to change both their lives-if they can stay alive, that is.

The Truth About Him

The Truth About Him is M. O'Keefe's conclusion to the book Everything I Left Unsaid. This book was from both Annie and Dylan's point of view and I was glad we got to learn more about him this way. This book is definitely not a stand alone and must be read after the first. It wraps up everything that was left open with book 1 and the characters get their HEA. I found myself hooked into this book and didn't want to put it down until it was done. M. O'Keefe is still a relatively new author for me, but she is one I will continue to read. This book is a solid 4 stars and I will most likely come back to it again.

We played our roles, told each other lies.

But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We’re face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real.

We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear:

The thrilling danger.

The raw, naked desire.

The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.

Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can’t shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it’s my turn, if only he will let me.

The latest novel in this series will be releasing on June 14.


DominanceNeverDies_highresA loss he can’t forget

Since losing his twin brother, Theo, in the line of duty, Case Taggart has felt dead inside. The former Navy SEAL has dedicated himself to his family and their business but he can’t help but feel stuck as he watches everyone else move on with their lives. Only meeting the beautiful Mia brings Case out of his misery, until he discovered she was just a reporter looking for a story. Betrayed, he turned his back on her and never looked back.

An attraction she can’t deny

Mia Danvers can’t get Case Taggart out of her head. Though they hadn’t been lovers, she’d felt more for him than for any man she’d ever met. Growing up in the shadow of her over-protective, older brothers, she felt free when she was with Case and she longs to feel that way again. She knows that if she can find any trace of Theo Taggart, Case will be forced to let her back into his life. Months of searching have finally paid off and she knows this is her second chance.

A desperate search

Case and Mia follow the clues they hope will lead them to Theo and the villainous Hope McDonald, but the search becomes increasingly dangerous. From Dallas to South America and beyond, dark forces work against them and threaten their lives. With each step forward, Case and Mia are pulled closer together and forced to confront their mutual attraction. But when the truth about Theo is revealed, Case may have to make a choice between his brother and the only woman he’s ever loved.

      DominanceNeverDies_highresCase forced himself to stop. He pulled away from the drugging kisses she was giving him. He couldn’t go down that path. If he was going to take her, it would be on his terms and that meant he wasn’t going to play the idiot. He wasn’t going to ask for more than she could give him. He wasn’t going to pretend this was some grand love. She wasn’t Charlotte and he wasn’t Ian. They didn’t get that forever thing. But they could have this. “What’s wrong?” She looked up at him and then started to pull away. He wasn’t going to let that happen. He turned her around so his front nestled her back. “Nothing’s wrong. I want to feel you. Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited to touch you, Mia? How often I’ve thought about this?” His hands were on her waist and he brought them up slowly. “I want to memorize every inch of your skin and do you how I’m going to do it?” She leaned back into him. “You’re going to touch me.” He loved how breathless she was. No other woman ever responded as honestly to him as she did. He could trust her body even if he didn’t trust the rest of her. Oh, she wouldn’t mean to hurt him. He actually believed that, but she would choose her world. She would choose her family over him. He could keep her for a little while. “What am I going to touch you with, princess?” He moved slowly, letting his hands find the warm skin under her shirt. “Your hands.” Her head fell back against his chest. Without heels on she didn’t quite reach his shoulders. “I want your hands everywhere, Case. They feel so good.” “I will touch you everywhere, but that’s not all I’ll do.” He was right under her breasts. This was one of the things D/s had taught him. Sex required discipline. Patience. Control. He wanted to shove her on that bed and force his dick inside her, but that wouldn’t make it good for her. This methodical arousal of every inch of her body would make her ready for him, would make her scream for him. Might make her stay with him for a while. He flattened one palm on the curve of her belly, the other touching the band of her bra. There was zero reason to hide how hard he was. He let his cock rub against her backside. “I’m going to put my hands on you. I’ll touch your breasts and cup that hot ass of yours and I will let my fingers explore how hot and wet your pussy gets for me.” “You’re killing me, Case.” She squirmed a little as though trying to get him to move. He held her tight, his mouth against her ear. “Don’t. We haven’t talked about punishments so I’m not going to stop and spank that sweet ass, but now you’ve been warned. This is my time. It’s my time to explore your body and get you hot. I’ll give you time later, but for now you’ll let me enjoy how you feel under my hands.” “D/s sucks,” she said with a shaky laugh. He ran the tip of his tongue along her ear, enjoying the way she shivered. “No it doesn’t. It makes us take things slow and really get to know each other’s bodies and responses. It makes thoughtful lovers. I want to be your lover, Mia. Do you understand what I mean by that? I don’t want to be your boyfriend. I want to be your Dom. It’s different. A boyfriend can take you or leave you. A Dom is responsible for you. It means something deeper to me.” “I’ve had boyfriends and not one of them made me feel the way you do,” she admitted. “Please don’t stop. I’ve waited so long for this.” He could smell her shampoo and the soap she used. He leaned down and ran his nose along the graceful column of her throat. “When I’m done touching you, I’m going to taste you.” He ran his tongue from her collarbone back up to her ear. “I’m going to lick you and we’ll see how you like a little bite.” He nipped at her ear, just a little sharp bite that made her jump in his arms. She groaned, but it wasn’t one that told him she was in pain. “I think I like it, Case,” she replied, her breath shaky. “The training course alone taught me that.” He growled. “I don’t like the thought of someone else training you.” Her body shook with her husky chuckle. “Javier and I were just friends. Promise. I liked the flogger he owned more than him. I liked the sting. I thought I could maybe survive a thud, but I got so hot when he hit me with the stinger. I wasn’t thinking about him though. I always thought of you. It was never him holding that son of a bitch and making me beg for more.” Fuck, she could talk dirty, too and that did something for him. “I didn’t bring a flogger with me. I should have been more optimistic, but I think you’ll find I can still take care of you. I’ll find all kinds of things to torture you with, princess. But first I’m going touch everything that just became mine.”

Nobody But You

Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis was a fantastic book. This is the third book in her Kincaid family series and covers the one brother we haven't been introduced to yet, Jacob Kincaid. Jacob left at the age of 18 to join the military and hasn't seen his family since. Sophie was down on her luck and just trying to get by when she met Jacob and mistook him for Lake Patrol. When things started heating up between the two of them they agreed that it was just for fun and for a short time. Well, we all know how well that goes in romance novels. This book was probably the most heart-wrenching one for me in this series, but at the same time it was also my favorite. Shalvis' humor and whit were shown throughout the story. Her style sucks you in and keeps you turning page after page until you've reached the end of the book. I can't say enough good things about this book. It gets a solid 5 stars from me and I know I'll be reading it again.


After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.

Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease—and tempt—him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other
