I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
A woman disguises herself as a high-priced call girl to help find her missing sister in Toni Blake's latest steamy novel, WILDEST DREAMS. It's a sizzling hot romance that takes place in the heart of New Orleans. Jake Broussard is a local New Orleans ex-cop who is now working as a bartender at an exclusive club called the Chez Sophia. Stephanie Grant is a sexually naive woman from Chicago who thinks she can disguise herself as a call girl in order to find her missing younger sister Tina.
When the two meet the sparks fly. Jake teaches Stephanie a lot of things behind closed doors, but Stephanie's main objective is to find her sister, who she thinks is now a prostitute. Jake doesn't want a committed relationship, but unfortunately Stephanie starts to subconsciously think that he really loves her. The sex is hot, and Stephanie tries to remind herself that after they find Tina, it's "goodbye, Jake".
On the other hand, Jake's past with Becky was a welcome part of the story, as it explained why he had a hard time getting seriously involved with any woman, including Stephanie. The author teases the reader, throwing out hints who Becky was, until their history is finally explained.
WILDEST DREAMS had plenty of sexy erotic scenes for those who love their romances hot and wild. However, for those who like their romances a little bit more tame, this may not be for you. The mystery behind the missing Tina adds a dimension to the novel that the reader will enjoy.
A terrific romance with a dash of mystery. Yes, it sizzles with hot love scenes, but it's more than just that. You actually care about the characters. Stephanie is strong yet vulnerable. And Jake. Sigh. I just loved reading about him, yet ached for his heartbreak. Together they're one couple you can see being together.
Amy Rubinate was fantastic with the delivery of the story
OMG!! Olivia Cunning has done it again!! Sinners At The Altar was well worth the wait! I got to fall in love with my Sinners, esp. one Brian "Master" Sinclair, all over again. I even got myself a new Sinner to love, yes, and his name is Malcolm "Mal" Trey Sinclair!! I'm not sure what Myrna and Brian are going to do with him, since he has his father's cover model good looks and his Godfather's ornery/cocky attitude, even down to that grin, and heaven's forbid he is as talented as his father or his Godfather, and, not to mention, he has everyone of those Sinners and Lady Sinners wrapped around his pudgy little finger. That little guy is a trip and I loved every minute of Mal. I hope we get more of him, esp. older Mal in the Exodus End series since Trey is his Godfather!! And my goodness, that Trey Mills never stops with his insane antics and I love him for it!! You can never get enough Trey Mills.
Brian and Myrna's story was very good. Goodness I love Brian. He has the best heart and he is so romantic. He really loves his wife. Myrna is a very lucky lady. Yeah, there were times when Myrna's jealousy was a bit much, but we have to remember that this story is coming out after we read all of the other Sinners on Tour books, so we know she never acted on it, but we also never really got to know how Myrna really felt after she witnessed Trey's obvious love for Brian and knowing that Trey wanted Brian for himself. However, I will say at one point she went way too far and I didn't really enjoy what she was doing because I felt that she only wanted to do it because of her jealousy when it came to Trey and she was trying to prove something that did not need to be proven. Brian loves her heart, mind, body and soul!! He is hers and she is his!!
Sed and Jessica's story was very good up until a certain point. I thought that Jessica had redeemed herself after she totally came across as a WITCH in Rock Hard to me, but nope, she still made Sed's story not one of my favorites once again. I was thoroughly enjoying the story and was happy with the outcome of the situation with her mother, but then Jessica once again turned into a total WITCH. Her behavior was totally unnecessary during the dinner and, once again, I was left wondering what Sed saw in this woman!! Goodness, she was awful. She needs to learned when is the proper time to assert her "Independent Woman" stance and then maybe we can take her seriously!! I am also tried of hearing about how smart she is. Umm...Myrna is very smart too, as are all the other Lady Sinners, and we don't hear about how smart they are every two seconds. If you have to say it that much it makes one wonder. In my book, the smartest thing Jessica ever did was marry Sed.
Eric and Rebekah's story was very good. Their story was so sweet. It really showed Eric's romantic side and how far he would go to show the woman he loves just how much he loves her. Rebekah is a very lucky girl to have Mr. Eric Sticks as her husband. Eric is silly, loving and has a heart of gold. I know Isaac was terrible to Rebekah and Eric, but I feel so bad for him, because Trey really messed him up and I want him to find a HEA.
Jace and Aggie's story was absolute perfection. I loved the fact that there were 2 stories happening at one time. I loved that we got to see just how sensitive Jace can be, and the same for Aggie. I loved seeing how much they have progressed in their relationship when it comes to showing their feelings for each other, esp. Jace. He is so darn cute and lovable. Their vows, esp. Jace's, were so romantic and absolutely geared towards them and their love for each other. They were perfect. My only complaint was Starr. Yuck!! I did not like her and her jealousy, and I am really hoping not to have to read about her anymore. She was tactless and tacky!! I was happy to see that, besides the other Sinners, Dare was involved in Jace's wedding as well, since it was because of him that Jace was even a member of Sinners.
I cannot wait for Sinners in Paradise and I really am hoping that we get Sinners Rock the Cradles sooner than later. I have to admit that Sinners At The Altar has totally gotten me all excited for the Exodus End series. I wish it was coming out RIGHT NOW!! So, I just wanted to say thank you so much Olivia Cunning for giving us Sinners fan more of our guys, and for giving me, in particular, one baby Sinner by the name of Mal Sinclair!! I love that little guy. When he grows up he is going to be worse than his father and Godfather combined, so the ladies better watch out!! Hahahaha!! Very well done, Olivia Cunning. I can't wait for the next Sinners' book!! Keep those Sinners coming!!
As always Justine O.Keef was outstanding with the delivery of the story.
Three words that describe heroes of the modern world. But what if those words also described a man who walked on the wrong side of the law? A man who lived by his own code, his own honor and was loyal to a group of men who were so far over the line of the law, the line was nowhere in site? What if that man made you feel safe, cherished and wanted you all to himself? What then?
Marie's brother Jeff made a huge mistake. He started working for the Reapers then he stole from them. When they found they went after him with a vengeance. Marie was given a choice, go with Horse and be his or Jeff would die. Marie would have to give everything to Horse, her freedom, her body. All she had to do now was hope Jeff came up with the money to pay them back. Then, maybe, she could go free.
HOLY HOT HELL BATMAN! This is one intense, angst filled, hot romance with some hot sex. Some of that sex is sweet and some of it angry sex, but all of it is HOT HOT HOT!
I felt so bad for Marie. She was stuck with a brother who she loved, but ended up putting her in danger. She paid with her body. While things did turn out well for her, it was not an easy road to haul. I was amazed she stood up to Horse. He was hot but scary. Marie made some difficult choices and stood by those decisions even when it was hard. She did it for her brother.
The romance between Horse and Marie was unconventional at best and torturous at worst. I felt so bad for both them. Marie didn't understand Horse's world and he couldn't....wouldn't do conventional romance for her. But in his own way, he showed her he cared. She just couldn't understand his ways.
Joanna Wylde did an amazing job of showing how life with an outlaw motorcycle gang was not glamorous but it was a choice people made. They weren't perfect, but they were family and they stood by each other. She showed how hard that life is and how filled with danger it is.
This was my first book by Joanna Wylde and I can't wait for more. Holy Hot Hell Batman! Bring on the bad-boys!
Stella Bloom did an excellent job with the delivery of the story.
