“A Hot Mess” by Christy Gissendaner (ebook)
I enjoyed this story about a woman who is dumped by her fiancé in Vegas. She calls her old friend Dylan to come rescue her – and their relationship takes a new turn.
“The Submissive” by Tara Sue Me (review copy)
I’m pondering this one. I don’t think it was my favorite story. I had a hard time warming up to the hero. I felt he was rather removed and somewhat unfeeling. However, I was caught up in the story enough that I think I will have to read the next two stories in the trilogy.
“His Risk to Take” by Tessa Bailey (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
A review of this title, out on May 13, will be coming. However, Tessa Bailey is the most recent author added to my “Must Buy” list. She has a knack for writing heroes who are very dirty talkers.
“Ours to Love” by Shayla Black (erotic, Berkley, May 2013, $16.00, 400pp)
Series: Wicked Lovers
Between two brothers…
Xander Santiago spent years living it up as a billionaire playboy. Never given a chance to lead his family business in the boardroom, he became a master in the bedroom instead. His older brother, Javier, inherited the company and worked tirelessly to make it an empire. But while cutthroat corporate espionage took its toll on Javier, nothing was as devastating as the seemingly senseless murder of his wife. It propelled him into a year of punishing rage and guilt…until Xander came to his rescue.
“Take Me, Break Me” by Cari Silverwood (ebook)
This book is a tough one to read. It features a heroine who asks her current friend Klaus (and former lover) to fulfill her capture fantasy and keep her captive for a month. It begins as a fantasy that Jodie constructs and controls. However when she tells Klaus that he is too nice to make the fantasy work, things change. Klaus discovers a brutal and sadistic side. This book is a serious mindfuck – mostly for Klaus who has difficulty dealing with what he learns about himself. I think the story is very well written. It is also a story that I can’t quite get out of my head.
“Bound by Pleasure” by Morticia Knight (ebook)
Um, this one was not my thing. It is much more pornographic than romantic.

“Her Twin Wilde Cowboy Masters” by Chloe Lang (ebook)
Brothers sharing a woman is such an odd thing. I find it creepy, yet I can’t stop reading about it. I bought this one expecting it to be a crack read to help get me out of a reading slump, and boy did it live up to my expectations.
“Seven Night Stand” by Nicole Helm (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.
“Forged in Steele” by Maya Banks (ebook, review copy)
This one isn’t out until the end of June.

“Play With Me” by Alisha Rai (ebook) Buy from Amazon
This erotic novella features a reunion between high school sweethearts. This one is hot and steamy and had the most fascinating use of a pen that I’ve ever read. This isn’t a serial, but seems to be a series about the same couple. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Wyatt and Tatiana next.
“The Devil’s Due” by Lora Leigh in “Enthralled” anthology (review copy) Buy from Amazon
This book came in the mail on Monday, and after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, I needed a distraction. Counting spurts in the latest Lora Leigh book seemed like it would be a great distraction. It really was, although I didn’t know it would be the last book I read this week. By the way, this 112 page novella had nine spurts, all love spurts. So, Devil Black rates high on the spurt scale. This one isn't out until July 2, 2013.
“Hero of My Heart” by Megan Frampton (historical, Loveswept, April 2013, $2.99, 264pp)
When Mary Smith’s corrupt, debt-ridden brother drags her to a seedy pub to sell her virtue to the highest bidder, Alasdair Thornham leaps to the rescue. Of course the marquess is far from perfect husband material. Although he is exceedingly handsome, with a perfect, strong body, chiseled jaw, and piercing green eyes, Alasdair is also too fond of opium, preferring delirium to reality. Still, he has come to Mary’s aid, and now she intends to return the favor. She will show him that he is not evil, just troubled.
