“Bound by Him” by Red Garnier (ebook)
I adore this cracktastic series. It is so out there. In this one, billionaire Andrew finally comes home after years away. He comes home for Whitney who he loves. Whitney isn’t so thrilled though because Andrew simply left her alone for years with no word. Of course, Andrew was in jail for having protected Whitney. Red Garnier writes the best WTF, crack reads.
“An Angel Exposed” by Peyton Elizabeth (ebook)
I can’t stop reading this series about people who contract with a company called Safeword, LLC to find perfect mates. This service caters to two dominant men looking for one submissive female. I’m fascinated by the fact that there seem to be no shortage of people looking for this unique arrangement. This was a strong entry into the series.
“The Accidental Submissive” by Leah J. Michaels (ebook)
I read this one because of the title. How does one get to be an accidental submissive? Well Karen delivers some jewelry to an exclusive hotel named the Mansion. Someone convinces her to stay the night. She ends up in the room of a submissive who is to be auctioned off. This is how she ends up on the auction block, purchased by a known sadist. The hotel’s manager steps in. I enjoyed the romance and the exploration of D/s between the couple. I wasn’t as into the suspense/murder plot as much though.
“Glitterland” by Alexis Hall (contemporary, m/m, Riptide, August 2013, $6.99, 248pp)
The universe is a glitterball I hold in the palm of my hand.

“The Couple Who Fooled the World” by Maisey Yates (contemporary, Harlequin Presents, June 2013, $4.99, 192pp)
The true meaning of keep your enemies close…

“Choose Your Shot” by Christine d’Abo (erotic, Carina, August 2013, $3.99, variable length)
Series: part of Long Shots
Come explore the newer, naughtier Maverick's, where you are in control of the story.
It's been a year since the decadent BDSM club was gutted in a fire. Tegan has scored an invitation to the grand reopening, where she can finally indulge the needs she's ignored for too long. On her wicked wish list: a thorough spanking, adventurous playmates and complete erotic satisfaction.
“Smoking Holt” by Sabrina York (ebook)
In this erotic romance, Bella and Holt finally hook up after years of dancing around an intense attraction. The problem is that Holt is a Dom and Bella doesn’t think she is submissive. The back and forth between Bella and Holt is well done. I loved their negotiating. I also found this to be a very hot book.
“No Dress Required” by Cari Quinn (ebook)
This is a cute romance about a woman who plans to seduce her best friend’s older brother. Her plans go awry when she is carjacked. This is a short one, but a fun read.
“Naked Sushi” by Jina Bacarr (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come
“Stay With Me” by Elyssa Patrick (ebook, review copy)
Review to come. But, when I think of New Adult romance, this is exactly what I would like it to be – and is really what I want to read.
“Beyond Pain” by Kit Rocha (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.
“Bared by Him” by Red Garnier (ebook)
Cade has closed himself off to love after losing his young wife to cancer. He is incensed when Ivy walks into his office demanding he contribute to her cancer charity. Ivy pushes Cade – hard, and of course, Cade pushes back convincing Ivy to share his bed. The story is intensely passionate and erotic, but (like all the others in this series) seriously cracktastic.
“The Billionaire’s Beck and Call” by Delilah Fawkes (ebook)
I’m still not sure what to make of this one which features a heroine who becomes the hero’s assistant – and then his love slave. It was okay, but not entirely memorable.
“Do Not Disturb” An Erotica Collection” anthology (ebook)
This anthology has several erotic novellas featuring hotel rooms. I enjoyed most of the stories and found them very steamy.
“Drawn Together” by Lauren Dane (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come. This one isn’t out until October 2013.

“Tie Me” by Olivia Cunning (ebook)
This erotic romance was okay. Overall, I enjoyed it. However, I had a hard time connecting with Kellen, the hero. I’m also not terribly interested in the characters in this series unfortunately.
“A Simple Twist of Fate” by HelenKay Dimon (ebook)
This is the second book in HelenKay Dimon’s Hanover Brothers series featuring three brothers who inherit a house – a house in a town where their deceased father fleeced many people. I got caught up in the series arc in the first book and was looking forward to Beck and Sophie’s story. I found the romance to be engaging and romantic. The sexual tension between Beck and Sophie was intense, fueled by a sexy scene where Sophie walks in on a naked Beck. I cannot wait for the third brother’s story which should end the series arc.
“Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet” by Darynda Jones (ebook)
I adore Charley Davidson, the heroine in this series by Jones. She is the Grim Reaper and is having an interesting sort of relationship with the son of Satan. Things with said son, Reyes, heat up considerably in this one. These books are perfect, fun, summer reads.
