Pain, desperation and grief.

For Ashley Akerman, they are things that she has grown accustomed to feeling over the twenty-five years of her life.

She always found it difficult to integrate into society, realising that her imperfections were always going to be the cause of her own insecurities.

Stumbling upon the sassy Gabriela one day changed Ashley’s life for the better. She was introduced into a new circle of people that accepted her for her personality and didn’t judge her on her looks. But the good luck had been running for far too long... and time was up.

When that devastating moment arises and Ashley loses the support system she has grown to rely on, how will she be able to continue?

Will she revert to her previous life of merely existing as an empty shell in the world, or will the unplanned arrival of a certain Italian playboy throw everything into absolute and utter turmoil?

Finding the strength to fight on through the destruction will be key for Ashley. Will she be able to overcome the overwhelming fear of her past catching up with her once again? Can her broken soul be repaired, or has she finally reached the point of irrevocable damage?

Review: Legal Affairs: Confessions of a Litigation God, by Sawyer Bennett

Legal Affairs: Confessions of a Litigation God
By Sawyer Bennett
Reviewed by Karen Lee

Did you already meet Matt Connover in the Legal Affairs books? He is a sexy, smoking hot lawyer who knows what he is good at, being a lawyer and a “variety” of ways to bring women pleasure. As you can tell by the title, he has a little bit of an ego, but once you get beneath the surface, you will see why he acts the way he does. He was burned badly by his ex-wife and she still likes to twist the knife and mess with him every chance she gets.
He meets McKayla, or Mac as her friends calls her, in an unconventional way and soon discovers she is the new associate at his law firm. Their one night was supposed to be just that, but each time he sees her he can’t resist the pull she has on him. They continue to see each other, to meet a physical need until Mac decides she needs something more than just hot sex. Does he open up to her, tell her about his past and try to have a relationship? Or does Matt keep things as they have been since his messy divorce, hooking up with strangers to fulfill a physical release?
Sawyer Bennett does a fantastic job letting us into the brain and heart of Matt Connover and this book can be read as a standalone. Matt and Mac have hot sex a lot and he is quite frankly “gifted” in bed, which she describes in delicious detail. If you do read and love this book as I did, please go and read the others in the Legal Affairs series. They were phenomenal and luckily, you can purchase them all at once as a set.

Review of Pandora by Storm Chase

Review by Marissa Honeycutt
4 Stars

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Pandora’s life has fallen apart. She broke off her engagement to a not-very-nice guy and upset her family in the process. She went to London to start over, got a good job, was accused of espionage and then got kidnapped. Ostensibly to save her life. Now she’s in the middle of nowhere with a ruthless cyber-terrorist who has very little capacity for feelings. Will she ever escape? Does she want to?
I really, really liked this book. It kept me interested to the last page, making me wonder what would happen next. The couple of sex scenes are hot without going overboard. What I liked most was the interesting character that is the Dragon.
You could almost compare him to a Vulcan, except that Vulcans really do feel emotions, but don’t allow themselves to be ruled by them. The Dragon, on the other hand, simply doesn’t have the capacity for many emotions. You could almost label him a psychopath, except that he’s really not. He’s exceptionally sweet in his own way. His only soft spot is Pandora and he will do anything, ANYTHING to keep her safe and make her happy. He knows his weakness and compensates for it the only way he knows how…through logic. And it’s so sweet how he does, you can’t help but fall for him a little. He sticks with you.
Pandora is strong, without being overbearing, though when she starts to get manipulative, it bugs me, but that’s a personal preference. I don’t like manipulative characters. But, she stops after not too long and realizes she just needs to deal with the hand dealt to her and she accepts it gracefully.
I found the ethical issues brought up in this book very interesting and thought provoking, something I appreciate in a book. Black and white and grey areas of right and wrong. Are there really ‘good’ guys out there? Who are the bad guys, really?
I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
