Release day blitz, giveaway & review - Ruined by LP Lovell

Title: Ruined
Series: She Who Dares #4
Author: LP Lovell
 Release Date: April 30, 2015


Ruined is book four in the She Who Dares series, but can be read as a standalone.


I like to fuck. A lot. Anywhere, anyway, as long as I’m shooting my load in or on some pretty young thing I’m good. In fact, scrap that, they don’t even have to be pretty. What can I say? I’m an equal opportunities kind of guy.

I pride myself on being able to turn even the most self-respecting woman into a dirty slut. I make no apologies for my life or my behaviour. I don’t care about anyone really, certainly not women.

Except her. I care about her, which is why I pushed her away.


I suppose I’m what you would call the good girl, the sensible one. I’m that girl, the romanticist. I believe in ‘the one’, in that all-encompassing love that leaves you unable to breathe without it.

The thing is though, love is an uncontrollable animal. The heart often declares war on the mind, and even the most rational being can become completely consumed by love.

Sometimes rational is boring. It’s the taste of the wild side that makes you remember you’re alive. The heart wants what the heart wants, even if you end up completely ruined in the process.

Ruined is a fun book full of great humour, sexy times, love and lust.  It is book four in the She Who Dares series, but can be read as a standalone.  This is the first book I've read by LP Lovell and I really enjoyed her writing style. 

Hugo is a real bad boy, he admits to being a total manwhore.  He doesn't do relationships or even friendships with women.  Until he meets Molly.  She is a good girl who wants to experience the wild side with Hugo.  They have a friends with benefits type relationship, until Hugo thinks she's getting too attached so he pushes her away.

I loved Molly, she was such a fun girl who I imagine would be someone I'd like to be friends with in real life.  It took me a while to take to Hugo, he was so cocky and seemed to sleep with every girl he met, but he did win me around in the end. I loved his bulldog too, despite his bad habits!  The relationship between Molly and Hugo was great to read about and the chemistry between them was sizzling.

This is such a fun, sexy book with unique characters.  I give Ruined four out of five stars.

Wicked Exposure is an interesting read with murder, mystery, intrigue and lust.  To be honest there is so much going on in this book that there were points where I got a bit confused, but it was worth persevering with.  The main characters had depth to them and were well drawn.  I enjoyed this book - I just hope there is a sequel out soon as it ended on a cliffhanger.

Forensic photographer Jessica was devastated when her sister was murdered.  When she goes to stay at her sister's house she begins to discover things that leave her wondering if she really knew who her sister was.  She shares her discoveries with local detective Sam, who she has history with.  A web of lies and betrayals unravel and our girl is in danger.

This is a good read, with a complex storyline, likable main characters and plenty of heat. Four out of five stars.

The article sparks an idea and her eyes are irresistibly drawn to the top-ranked firemen just across the street. It might be coincidence or driven by fate but it is all the motivation she needs.

Wow! This book is hot - and I mean catch your kindle on fire hot!  It is deliciously dirty right from the first page, and it gets hotter as the story progresses.  This is the first book of a new series and if the rest of the series is as good as this one then it will be a must read.  The writing was slick, the story flowed well and the characters were well developed.  It is a short novella length book, but it sure packs a punch.

Karina hooks up with Dante, a sergeant-at-arms for a motorcycle club, to get back at her ex Logan.  Both Karina and Dante expect this to be a one time thing, but both are surprised when Dante wants to continue the relationship.  Dante is a lot older than Karina and he doesn't do relationships, but there is something special about her.  Dante is rough, tough and he has an absolutely filthy mouth but there is something about him that makes you fall in love with him.  Karina is really sweet too.  She is young, fairly innocent and desperate to be cared for after being brought up by a father who gave her no attention or love.

Dante is a real alpha male while Karina is obviously submissive.  They don't have an official Dom/sub relationship, but there are elements of BDSM in their relationship.  This is all done really well and is oh so hot!

Asunder is a great read and I can't wait to read the next book after that ending.  I'm really looking forward to seeing where the author takes the story.  This book features tough badass bikers who use rough language - so it may not be for everyone, but personally I loved it.  Five stars!

Hand Job by Spencer Dryden
Erotic novella 
4/5 stars 


Jack Reed is a thirty-something handyman and aspiring erotic fiction writer with fantasies about Jodie, a barista at the coffee shop where he writes every day.

His dreams begin to materialize when Jodie offers him a quick palm reading, hinting at sex with her. She invites Jack to her boutique for a more complete session. Her reading predicts Jack's artisan hands will be pleasing to a woman. Their session interrupted, she invites him to her house that evening for further revelation.

Uncertain of Jodie's intentions, but drawn by her allure, Jack goes to her house expecting additional interpretation in exchange for handyman work. What he receives is far more than he bargained for.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

Hand Job is a short, enjoyable read with lots of steamy sex and likable characters. It is well written, is easy to read and it is definitely entertaining.

Handyman Jack has been fantasising about barista Jodie for a while, but he thought the sexy older woman was out of his league.  His fantasies become real when Jodie invites him to her house for a palm reading, which leads to some really hot encounters.  I love Jodie, she is a strong woman and knows how to get what she wants.

This was a fun and sexy short read, and I give it four out of five stars.

Book review - Leather & Lace by Samantha Cole (BDSM romance) 5/5 stars

Leather & Lace by Samantha Cole
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


Kristen Anders is starting her life over again after divorcing her cheating husband. An author of several 'vanilla' romance novels, she spiced up her latest one involving BDSM and it became a best-seller. Now she's researching the subject for her follow-up book and manages to get a tour of the elite, private sex club, The Covenant, and runs into the one person she never expected to see there.

Devon "Devil Dog" Sawyer is intrigued by a cute brunette he meets at a friend's Irish pub and does something he hasn't done in over twelve years. He asks her out on a date. While it might seem strange to most, Devon's only relationships since he was twenty-four have started and ended in the same place–a BDSM club.

What was supposed to be a single weekend of mutual pleasure and dirty sex, turns into something more. But while they fight their growing connection, a killer has Devon in his sights and Kristen may end up as collateral damage. Will they survive with their lives and hearts intact?

This book contains adult content.

Wow! I absolutely loved this book!  Leather & Lace is the first book in the Trident Security series which follows the lives of a group of ex Navy SEALS who now work for a private security firm.  Of course they are all absolutely gorgeous and most of them are also Doms.  Leather & Lace is beautifully written, steamy and has a nice amount of suspense.  The main characters are great and I also love the supporting cast, who I assume will be the lead characters for future books.  I will definitely be looking out for other books from Samantha Cole as she has real potential to become one of my favourite authors.

Divorcee Kristen is a successful romance author, whose latest books involve BDSM.  When she tours a local BDSM club for research purposes, the last person she expects to see is the guy she met at a Irish pub and agreed to go on a date with.  She's shocked to discover that Devon "Devil Dog" is not only a Dom but he's a co-owner of the club.  They agree to spend a weekend together, with lots of kinky sex, but will it lead to more?  And with a killer on the loose will they even survive?

Devon is oh so sexy, he's a dream Dom.  He's a real alpha male and is endearingly protective of Kristen and others he cares about.  Kristen is also a great character, she's a strong woman who is enjoying her new life after divorcing her idiot ex-husband.  The chemistry between them is sizzling and the sex scenes are so, so hot.  The BDSM scenes are intense and well written, with a strong emphasis on safe, sane and consensual.  The suspense part of the storyline is great too, with danger lurking and a killer to catch.

This is a great book that I definitely recommend.  Samantha Cole is obviously a talented author and I look forward to reading more books in this series.  Five stars!

Liam Parker crash landed into Laurie’s life when everything else was crumbling all around her. Her marriage and career were in pieces and her mind was left spinning.

But one touch from Liam, and Laurie could forget everything else around her.
She thought she had it all figured out.

As Laurie lost herself in Liam’s warm caresses and his commanding blue eyes, her husband refused to go quietly into the night. While Laurie fought to move on, it was James who was working his way back into her life, fighting for the marriage they had once held dear.

Forced to make choices she never imagined having to make, Laurie finally found herself on firm footing, knowing which way she was going to turn.

But then life threw her another curveball. And when she once again began picking up the pieces, learning how to survive and rebuild after everything exploded, there was only one man still there, one man who remained by her side, showing her that sometimes life isn’t about learning how to survive…

It’s about learning how to thrive.

S. Layne currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and four children. When she’s not conquering mountains of laundry and fighting a war against dust bunnies and cracker crumbs, you can find her playing with her children, curled up on the couch with a good book, or on the boat with her family enjoying Minnesota’s beautiful, yet too short, summer.
She lives off her daily pot of coffee, can only write with a bowlful of Skittles nearby, and has been in love with romance novels since before she could drive herself to the library.

She’s torn my empire apart. Now, my secrets are out — but I still don’t know who I can trust.

Somebody is after me, and they don’t care who they hurt to get their way.

I have to protect her.

I need to possess her.

It all ends tonight.

*The fourth and final part of the explosive serial!*

Graphic Designer: Jay Jay


I was really looking forward to the conclusion of this series, and Roxy Sloane didn't disappoint.  This was an explosive climax to an amazing series that I one hundred percent recommend.  Drama, suspense, danger, love and lust combine to make this a must read.

This final instalment picks up right where the last ended on a huge cliffhanger.  Zoe is in danger - is it an accident or something more sinister?  Dax is still being blackmailed and he is determined to find out who is behind it.  He's also falling more and more for Zoe and vows to keep her safe.

Dax is just as deliciously dominant in this instalment, but he also shows his softer, caring side.  He really is a fantastic character and he is one of my favourite book boyfriends.  The chemistry between him and Zoe is just as intense, but the love between them is now just as strong.  They make a great couple and I was rooting for them throughout the series.

Exposé part 4 is a sexy, exciting read and gets five stars.  The whole series is fantastic, each part is easily worthy of five stars.  I'm just sad this series has come to an end - I looked forward to my Dax fix every week!
