About Killer Temptation:

Security expert Tony Falcon has never had a problem keeping his distance from his clients–until now. When his murder investigation leads him to a feisty fashionista in need of a bodyguard, he realizes he may have met his match. Going undercover as Sylvie’s boyfriend might be his best chance at catching the criminals who killed his best friend, but soon his attraction to her–and the danger she’s in–has him wondering if solving the case is worth it…

Sylvie Bissette has a closely guarded secret–she’s the woman behind a must-read blog for fashionistas everywhere. When an internet troll discovers her secret identity and escalates from stalking her to threatening her life, she turns to Tony for help. The sexy investigator from the other side of the tracks is the olive oil to her Evian water and aggravates her to no end. But if they want to find her revenge-obsessed stalker before Sylvie ends up with a literal knife in the back, they’ll have to learn to work together.

Killer Attraction

About Killer Attraction:

Devin Harris may have given up his MMA fighting dreams, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t always in control. So when someone embezzles millions under his watch, he isn’t going to let the private investigator working the case go it alone–even if she is the woman who blew him away in bed and then blew him off.

A fighter since birth, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon would rather trade in her all-black wardrobe for head-to-toe hot pink than let anyone ever see the cracks in her tough exterior. So when she finally gets an assignment she can prove herself on, she’s horrified to realize it’s with her one-night stand. The one she hasn’t been able to forget. Too much is at stake for her to walk, but staying means risking more than just her life…

Now he’s forced to return to the game undercover–as Mika’s boyfriend–to find some answers. Only playing “boyfriend” with his gorgeous one-night stand is more temptation than a guy can withstand…

Her Enemy Protector
by Avery Flynn
Tempt Me #2
Publication Date: November 14, 2016
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Indulgence, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

By-the-book secret agent Lucas Bendtsen will do anything to keep his country safe—even if that means blackmailing the stepdaughter of a notorious mobster who is about to sell guns to a group of terrorists. The plan? He’ll pose as her fiancé in order to access her stepfather’s guarded compound and find out the location of the arms deal. The problem? Despite her reputation as a heartless femme fatale, Ruby Macintosh is not at all what she seems.Only a fool would double-cross the Organization, but Ruby doesn’t have any choice—not if she’s going to save her brother and mother from her stepfather. So she places her life in the hands of a man who turns her on as much as he ticks her off…

The fake engagement may be the beginning of a high-stakes game of subterfuge, but when their hearts get involved, Lucas has to decide whether to break the rules or break Ruby’s heart.

her-enemy-protector-teaser-2

Excerpt:

“Are you completely insane?” Lucas asked in a harsh whisper.

The answer to that depended on who was answering, but Ruby didn’t think he really wanted a response to his question. “I guess that means the room is clean of bugs.”

He wasn’t going to be put off though, judging by the way he stalked over to her, predatory intention clear in every step that brought him closer. Her pulse shot up, and every instinct warned her to run, but she stood her ground as he bore down on her. He stopped less than an arm’s reach away, frustration dipped in desire pouring off him in waves that set off an answering delicious shiver up her spine.

“Asking me to bring Jasper here.” He shoved his long fingers through his dark hair, ruffling its perfect order. “You know that isn’t possible.”

“We both know it is possible—anyway, it’s smart for you. It lets you flash a little of that Luc Svendsen magic that has Rolf all hot and bothered.” She snorted at his surprised look. Men always were ready to believe anything about her, except that she could add two plus two and get four. “Oh yes, I know that despite what your written plan stated, I was just your invitation to Fare Island. The really big bait you’re dangling so he’ll let you in close is the possibility of learning all the secrets you have about the influential people he wants to control.”

“I don’t need Jasper here to prove that I’m valuable.”

“No, you need him here to prove that you’re willing to make sacrifices for the organization. He knows it will cost you valuable favors to get Jasper here. If you don’t think he has some inkling that my brother is in custody, then you vastly underestimate him.” Too many people had tried to influence her father by currying favor with his family. However, neither her mother, brother, nor herself had a direct line to her father’s heart. “That’s what he really cares about. Until you can prove your value to the organization, you’re an interesting distraction.”

She was right. He’d have to be an imbecile not to realize it, and Lucas Bendtsen was no idiot. Like her, he stayed focused on obtaining the goal at all costs, no one who wasn’t that way would have said yes to her stepfather’s asinine idea to get married right away. They didn’t have much in common, but they had that, even if their goals were at opposing ends.

“And the fact that having Jasper here will make it that much easier for you two to go AWOL didn’t factor into your decision at all?”

Of course it did, but she didn’t need to confirm it for him to know that. “What’s wrong?” she asked, her sharp question softened by her teasing tone. “You think you can’t beat me at the game you created and made all the rules for?”

His answering smirk made her pulse hop. “That’s not even up for debate.”

Had they started flirting? Because it totally felt like they’d moved from fighting to flirting considering the way her lungs had shrunk and her nipples had peaked. Did Mr. By The Book even know how to flirt? His eyes darkened before he dropped his gaze to her parted mouth then ever so slowly brought his attention back up. Breathing became difficult.

Yes. Yes, he definitely did know how to flirt.

Synopsis:

Freelance investigator Isaac Camacho has a weakness for bitchy blondes, and no one fits the bill quite like former beauty queen and gold digger Tamara Post. She’s sexy, feisty and on the run from a cult leader. Complicated women? Oh he loves them almost as much as he loves watching Tamara act like a total ice queen when he knows she burns white hot.

Calculating opportunist Tamara Post never cared what anyone thought about her—except for her sister. But when her sister dies, it’s up to Tamara to hide her teenage niece so the girl’s dictatorial father can’t marry her off to one of his disciples. The last thing Tamara has time for is Isaac—a man who flirts as well as he fills out a pair of worn jeans and whose stubborn determination to help makes it hard to act as if she’s really as cold as she appear.

When the bad guys find her, there’s only one person Tamara can depend on to help keep her alive until her niece is safe. But once the life and death chase is on, it’s not just their lives Tamara and Isaac are risking…but their hearts.
Excerpt:

 

If someone had told Tamara Post a month ago that she’d be in one of Fort Worth’s most exclusive members-only clubs sipping champagne at her ex-husband’s Taz’s engagement party, she would have laughed in that person’s face. If they’d have said she’d be working as the office manager at B-Squad Security and Investigations—which her ex-husband’s fiancée, Bianca Sutherland, owned—and loving it, she would have punched them square in the nose. Ex-beauty queens and former soon-to-be trophy wives didn’t roll that way.

It was funny how life turned out.

Settling in on the velvet-covered settee in the Corsair Club’s private party room, she contemplated getting another glass of wine from the open bar.

“Looking for one of these?” The man belonging to the deep bass voice held out a glass of her favorite chardonnay.

Whereas everyone else in the room was dressed in designer suits and glittering cocktail dresses, the tall, dark and handsome man in front of her was in pressed Wranglers, cowboy boots and a crisp white dress shirt. If he’d had a tie or a sports coat on at one time, he’d ditched them a while ago, judging by how his shirtsleeves were rolled halfway up his corded forearms. Not that she noticed that, or had scoped out the way his broad shoulders filled the shirt to perfection, or was tempted to ask him to turn around so she could confirm that his ass looked as good in those jeans as she imagined.

Men were no longer on her to-do list. But wine? Yeah, that she could do.

“Thank you.” She took the glass and drank a sip.

The man sat down beside her, his brawny frame taking up most of the bench she wasn’t already parked on. One of his jeans-clad legs brushed against her bare knee and, for the first time in months, a wave of warm desire had her clenching her thighs together.

Unable to figure out how to inch away to allow for space between them without being obvious about it, she crossed her legs. The move made her emerald-green skirt slide up her thigh a bit more than she was comfortable with under the circumstances. Still, giving him a glimpse of skin was less…unsettling…than actually touching him.

“I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced.” He held out his hand. “I’m Isaac Camacho.”

She knew that name, and now she’d have a face to go with it every time she entered in expense reports. “You work with B-Squad.”

He nodded. “On a come-and-go basis as a freelancer.”

“Why’s that?” From the number of B-Squad clients she’d had to turn away in the past month, Tamara knew the team could use another member.

“I’ve been told I don’t play well with others.”

His grin did something funny to her stomach.

“Now that really is too bad. It’s important to play nice—mostly.” It came out before she could stop it. Damn it. She didn’t flirt. Not anymore. Men had been her drug of choice for too long and she’d sworn off of them.

He leaned in close. “Look, I don’t want to make a scene but we need to get out of here. Now.”

Her heart fluttered. She mentally rolled her eyes at herself. What could she say? Old habits died hard—even when they were oh-so-bad for her. “Why’s that?”

His full lips flattened into a grim line. “There’s a bounty hunter making his way through the front of the restaurant now. He’s got papers on you.”

New Release Reviews and Giveaway! Avery Flynn’s B-Squad series (BULLET PROOF #.5 and BRAZEN #1)

Tour Banner

Title: Brazen
Series: B-Squad #1
Author: Avery Flynn
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 7, 2016
Format: Digital
ISBN: 978-0-9964-7632-4

Blurb:

Falling in love is the easy part, staying together…now that’s the biggest challenge of all.

Everything is finally working out for Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard. They’re in love and running B-Squad Security and Investigations. They’ve planned the perfect operation to take down the dangerous drug kingpin who’s kidnapped one of Bianca’s best friends. Then Taz’s wife—who was supposed to be his ex-wife—shows up on the eve of the big rescue mission and threatens to blow up his and Bianca’s happily ever after.

The last thing Bianca wants after the revelation that Taz might still be married is to have to spend time with her former live-in boyfriend who never told her he’d ever been married in the first place. But it’s too late to change plans. To save her friend, she has to swallow her hurt and go undercover with Taz as a newlywed couple at an exclusive resort. The only thing Taz wants is Bianca and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her back. But when it’s his life on the line, will it be too late for him to show her that his past is over and she’s the only woman for his future…

Brazen is a stand alone novel and the first full novel in the B-Squad series. However, if you want to find out how Taz and Bianca met, check out Bullet Proof, a novella set in Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Security world.

 

Review:

Bullet Proof almost felt more like a teaser for book #1 ( Brazen) than a story in its own right, but it does its job of introducing us to Bianca and Taz and setting up the series (book one especially) quite nicely. There are a few pretty steamy scenes here, even in such a short book, and a decent mystery.

You could definitely read Brazen without having read this, but it does fill in a few holes for you…and if you’ve read this one, you’ll most likely want to know what will happen next, because there are friends to rescue and bad guys still to stop at the novella’s end.

Even just from the brief intro we get here to Taz’s “brother” Keir and Bianca’s BBF Vivian, I want to see more of them. Fortunately they’ll be back in book #1 (though sadly, their own books are neither #2 or #3 in the series–I see your plan here, Ms. Avery! ;))

Rating: 3 1/2 stars / C+

Blurb:

From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by best-selling author Avery Flynn…

“Being one of the good guys is not my thing.”

Bianca Sutherland isn’t at an exclusive Eyes-Wide-Shut style orgy for the orgasms. She’s there because the only clue to her friend’s disappearance is a photo of a painting hanging somewhere in Bisu Manor. Determined to find her missing friend when no one else will, she expects trouble when she cons her way into the party—but not in the form of a so-hot-he-turns-your-panties-to-ash former boxer.

Taz Hazard’s only concern is looking out for himself and he has no intention of changing his ways until he finds sexy-as-sin Bianca at the most notorious mansion in Ft. Worth. Now, he’s tangled up in a missing person case tied into a powerful new drug about to flood the streets, if they can’t find a way to stop it before its too late. Taking on a drug cartel isn’t safe, but when passion ignites between them Taz and Bianca discover their hearts aren’t bulletproof either.

A Letter from Liliana Hart:

Dear Readers,

I’m thrilled to be able to introduce the MacKenzie Family World to you. I asked five of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.

These stories are hot, hot, hot—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story—and it was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover five new authors to put on your auto-buy list.

Make sure you check out Troublemaker, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. And yes, you’ll get to see more glimpses of Shane before his book comes out next year.

So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

 

Love Always,

Liliana Hart

His ranch is profitable and a legacy he’ll be proud to pass onto his children one day, work fills his time from sunup to sundown, and his romances are short and sweet.

Security specialist Devon Randolph might be rough and gruff, but he’ll never turn down a friend in need, especially when that friend is the fellow Ranger who once saved his life. Devon may have secrets, but he’s nearby, and he’s got the skills to keep his buddy’s sister safe…even if one look at brash, beautiful, Kylie makes him want to break all the rules.

Forced on the run, Kylie and Devon dodge bullets and bad guys, but they cannot fight the attraction burning between them. Yet the closer they grow, the higher the stakes become. Will they be able to outrun a brutal killer? Or will Devon’s secrets tear them apart first?

Review of Liliana Hart’s TROUBLE MAKER:

This novel’s on the short side, but it packs quite a punch!Trouble Maker is #11.5 in the series–something I did not realize going in, so while I was reading it I kept thinking,Huh, all these people already found their significant others, this must be quite the series! I’m going to go out on a limb and say that if you’ve read the first 11+ books (there’s a bunch of novellas in there too), then this one is going to be like a big ol’ family reunion. If you haven’t read them, like me, you’re still going to be okay, though keeping track of all those extra characters is going to be a lot more challenging.

Even though my head was spinning *just* a bit from trying to remember which MacKenzie was which, I really did enjoy this story. Marnie’s backstory is just so tragic, and when her budding romance with Beckett is…well…nipped in the bud, I just wanted to cry. If anyone was deserving of a second chance at romance, it was these two. And thank goodness they’re going to get it!

Though I would have liked to have seen a little bit more of Beck’s attempts to win back Marnie–because I’m sure that guy was giving it his all, and what we do see is all kinds of adorbs–it’s really hard to complain about anything in this story. There’s a whole lot of sweet, a touch of suspense, a bunch of angst and drama, and one fantastic couple.

Sigh…and now my TBR’s grown. AGAIN. Darn these authors with their series backlists! 😉

A Letter from Liliana Hart:

Dear Readers,

I’m thrilled to be able to introduce the MacKenzie Family World to you. I asked five of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.

These stories are hot, hot, hot—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story—and it was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover five new authors to put on your auto-buy list.

Make sure you check out Troublemaker, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. And yes, you’ll get to see more glimpses of Shane before his book comes out next year.

So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

Love Always,

Liliana Hart

DELTA: RESCUE Excerpt:

Luke Brenner lived for moments when he could crush his enemies, when he could see fear as their past caught up to the present. What he had learned over the last ten years in the military and law enforcement was that men who trafficked women and drugs tended to find God when they were caught. At each takedown and arrest, someone was always pleading, always “Oh God, no” or “Oh God, help.” Luke found it astonishing that just moments before, those same a**holes hadn’t cared who the girls were sold to or whose lives the drugs ruined. They never thought about the pain of another life stolen or what the women would be subjected to.

But Luke had.

Every day, he had. His nightmares were made of the traffickers he was about to bust. Eerily, his good dreams were quite similar—those where he escaped, where the Mackenzie Security–Delta Team joint taskforce was able to save women and sweep drugs off the Miami streets.

Well, today he intended to save some more. It’d been too long since they’d walked out with salvageable lives.

Stealthy boot steps sounded from behind, and Luke already sensed that Javier was on his six. The team was in place. This rescue op needed to be a quiet in and out, or at least an attempt to avoid mass chaos and destruction.

“We’re a go,” their joint-endeavor team leader, Cade MacKenzie, ordered in Luke’s earpiece comm. “Execute.”

“All right, all right. Let’s do this.” Luke nodded across the hotel hall to Grayson, who warily watched his every move.

Delta team danced on eggshells around Luke and Javier when the job dealt with traffickers. Brock Gamble, their Delta team leader, almost hadn’t let Luke on this op. He could feel their concerned looks, but they needed to chill. He hadn’t lost control that many times, and when he had, it’d been deserved. Still, the scrutiny was there.

“Damn. I’m good.” More or less. “Calm down,” he grumbled.

DELTA: RESCUE Review:

Phew–this was an intense read. I’d forgotten what a nerve-racking experience reading a Cristin Harber book was! 😉

Luke Brenner, obsessed since the age of 17 with taking down the human traffickers who kidnapped his girlfriend, does the unthinkable–finds himself drawn to the daughter and heir apparent to one of the biggest trafficking families around–the Merciers. Maddy Mercier isn’t anything she seems–or is she? Can she trust Luke enough to help him bring down her father’s empire, her only goal since she was practically old enough to know what it was her father did for a living?

(Yes, of course–eventually. But we need to have lots of frustrated lust and angsty moments first…So. Worth. It. Plus, there’s an absolutely fantastic epilogue. Win-win!)

Delta: Rescue has characters from MacKenzie Security and the Titan/Delta teams joining together as a task force–if you’re familiar with those series, you’ll see glimpses of favorite characters, but it should work okay as a standalone too. Don’t blame me if it temps you to add a couple of new series to your TBR, though… 😉

New Release Review and Giveaway! DODGING TEMPTATION by Avery Flynn (The Retreat #1)

Dodging TemptationTour Banner

Dodging Tempation
by Avery Flynn
Publication Date: September 14, 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Interracial, Romance

Synopsis:

You can’t hide from love…or revenge.

Dodge Loving wants revenge…and he’s about to get it. On the cusp of closing a multi-billion-dollar luxury resort deal, Dodge can’t afford for anything go wrong. But then a fiery redhead shows up, the paparazzi hot on her trail, and throws his world into chaos. He has to get rid of her. Immediately.

Harper Conner just wants to be left alone, but after slapping her cheating senator ex-husband during a televised press conference, she’s a hot commodity. The ultra exclusive resort in Wyoming seems like the ideal place to hide-and work-so there’s no way she’s letting the Type-A jerk who runs the place fire her.

Despite the animosity sparking between them, Dodge and Harper can’t keep their hands to themselves. This thing between them can’t happen. It won’t. But his mother has other ideas…and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure Harper and Dodge fall in love.

 

Excerpt:

Twenty minutes and half a carton later Harper and Dodge were facing each other as they sat on the stainless steel prep table in the middle of the kitchen with the carton of mint chocolate chip between them, each armed with a spoon. He’d ditched the shoes, rolled up his cuffs—revealing sinewy forearms that made her heart stutter—and told stories about how he ended up with the first name Dodge City.

“So all of you are named after old cowboy towns?”

The idea of it was totally bizarre and endearing. Her being named Harper had scandalized her grandparents. Dodge City would have given them each a heart attack.

“Yep, my mother loves a theme.” He shook his head and laughed. “Stone is short for Tombstone and Griff is short for Fort Griffin.”

She scooped up a spoonful of ice cream, now melted more than when they’d started their midnight snack, and a line of green slipped over the edge. She stopped it with her finger before it could drip down to the table and licked the evidence off. “Did the other kids make fun of you growing up?”

When he didn’t answer right away she looked up. His mossy green eyes had darkened, and his gaze was locked in on her mouth. A flush burned its way up from her toes, and she scrambled to think of something to say before her panties spontaneously combusted. “For your n-n-name…” She stumbled over the words. “Did they tease you about your name?”

He winked and smirked, all cocky confidence and testosterone-fueled sex appeal. “Only once.”

If she could have gotten pregnant from a look, she’d be scheduling an appointment with her OB/GYN in the morning. Time to get out of this kitchen before the little seed of a romantic notion May Loving had planted took root and grew into the last thing Harper needed in her life right now.

She’d spent her entire life up until eight months ago living by a script she’d never had any say in, let alone took part in writing. Neither the universe nor a my-way-or-the-highway hottie like the corporate cowboy here was taking her back there. She was her own woman now.

“You look like you’re getting ready to wrestle a buffalo,” he said.

“I hope not.” Her denial came out far too soft and breathy for a woman only experiencing a sugar high.

“Then I’d suggest cleaning up a bit.” Dodge swiped his thumb across the corner of her mouth—soft and slow, coming away with a dab of mint chocolate chip on his thumb, which he sucked off. “The buffalo around here have a real hankering for ice cream.”

It took everything she had not to press her fingers to her tingling skin where he’d caressed her, as if her own touch could erase the sizzling sensation his had caused. It was only on that small space where her lips met, but it was the only thing she could feel. Her gaze held his, and her breath caught. There was no mistaking the want in his eyes. The air around them thickened, and words failed to materialize in her head.

Maybe it was the intimacy of the half-lit kitchen or the late hour, but she leaned forward over the carton between them without really meaning to. It wasn’t much, an inch or two, but it was more than enough. He mirrored her move. Her eyes fluttered shut, and her lips parted in anticipation, then she detected a hint of icy mint before his warm lips covered hers.

 

Review:

Mmmmm…the loving brothers–the poor guys are named after old cowboy towns (Dodge City, Tombstone, and Fort Griffin) and think they’re all confirmed bachelors, but their mother is one determined matchmaking woman.

And whoa. Did you get a load of the abs on Dodge? I mean, really. I’m pretty sure it’s genetic, and I am so ready for Stone and Griff’s covers. I mean stories. 😉

Dodging Temptation reads a bit more like a Brazen novel than an Indulgence–not that I’m complaining. It is chock-full of smexy scenes, many involving various pints of ice cream, whipped cream, and cherries (bonus!) Neither Dodge nor Harper feel they’re in any position to fall in love–Harper’s disastrous marriage has just ended, and Dodge is too busy plotting revenge against his bigoted grandfather and planning world domination to be slowed down by something as frivolous as love. But fortunately his mother–and the universe–have other plans.

For a guy who didn’t have time for romance, Dodge definitely pulled out all the stops when it came to showing off his Wyoming home to Parker. Private helicopter ride over the Grand Tetons? Check. Romantic picnic for two–with ice cream sundaes–on an isolated island? Check and check.

It all makes it a lot easier to forgive him when he’s being a butthead. And a butthead he will be, eventually. Because he’s got to close his business deal, and he’s got no time for love. Did he mention that already?

But resistance, naturally, is futile. May Loving and the universe are forces that cannot be ignored.

Fortunately–so, HEA–here they come!

(And can I just say that in my mind when Dodge is galloping off on his horse at the end he’s shirtless? Or at the very least, his button-down shirt is completely unbuttoned. Because, day-um. What a nice visual 😉 )

Bring on Stone and Griff’s books–I’m ready!

New Release Review and Giveaway: ENEMIES ON TAP by Avery Flynn

Another fun read from Avery Flynn–and the promise of more to come!

Enemies on Tap Banner

Enemies on Tap
by Avery Flynn

 Synopsis:

Enemies …

After years away, Miranda Sweet returns to Salvation, Virginia to save her family’s brewery, but her fate is in the hands of her lover-turned-enemy, Logan. What’s a girl to do when the only person who can help her is the man who betrayed her?

Lovers …

Logan Martin can’t believe his luck when the woman who smashed his heart to smithereens walks into his bank asking for his help. What she doesn’t know is that he needs the land her brewery is on—and he’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

An Irresistible Combination …

Their wager becomes a battle between their attraction and their determination to win. But it’s in each other’s arms that they realize there might be more at stake now than their bet. With the town against the Sweet Salvation Brewery’s success, Logan has to choose between what’s expected of him and what he really wants…

 

Review:

Enemies on Tap is a quick, quirky, and fun read. Its heroine Miranda is one of a set of identical triplets, so there’s sure to be more to come from the Sweet Salvation Brewery–bonus!

Miranda and Logan are starring in what is both an enemies-to-lovers and a lovers with a past story, with more than a touch of Hatfields and McCoys thrown in for flavor. Avery Flynn keeps the story moving along with fun and flirty banter as well as some steamy scenes.

I especially enjoyed Miranda and Logan’s early antagonism; their “bet” made for some funny situations. Who could have ever guessed that Logan’s love for pecan pie could have worked in his enemy’s favor? 😉

For a while there I was a bit concerned that these two would be able to get to their HEA, but Ms. Flynn gave them a clever way to manage it. That said, however, the ending does feel a bit rushed, and some of their issues (Logan’s father’s major ‘tude about Miranda and her family, for example) are either glossed over or not addressed, making it feel a bit unfinished. All in all, though, this was an enjoyable read that has me craving some pecan pie and sweet tea. 🙂

Rating: 3 1/2 stars / C+

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

 

Excerpt:

For the love of Pete, the man was injured and all Miranda could think about was jumping Logan’s bones and riding him like a rented pony.

She hadn’t just drunk the Salvation Kool-Aid—she’d started to brew her own.

That was not good.

Not good at all.

She needed to bandage him up and get him the hell out before she forgot who he was—again. She grabbed the kit from under the sink and hurried back into the kitchen.

“Okay, I got the—what are you doing?”

A barefoot Logan stood at the sink, holding a yellow and green I heart NORML glass in one hand.“Getting a drink of water.”

“You should be sitting down.”The last thing he needed was to pass out, or whatever it was that people did after getting conked on the head with a garden gnome.

She threw out one arm and pointed toward the table. “Sit.”

He shut off the water and walked over to the chair facing out toward the rest of the kitchen.

With exquisite slowness, he unbuttoned his light blue shirt, which had a small reddish-brown stain on the collar. Inch by inch, he revealed his broad chest and the happy trail that disappeared beneath his waistband.

The sight made Miranda’s tongue stick to the roof of her mouth, and her thighs quivered. Desperate to stick to the plan, she leaned against the doorframe to anchor herself to the here and now instead of the if and when and why nots.

He never lost eye contact as he shucked off the shirt and laid it across one of the empty chairs.

God, he shouldn’t but he looked perfectly at home in the farmhouse kitchen. Big and brawny and sexy as all hell with his mahogany hair ruffled and the fuck-me-now pheromones coming off him in waves. She tried to remember he was an injured man. A very sexy injured man.

He sat down in a chair and spread his legs, drawing her gaze to the outline of his hard cock pressing against his pants. “I’m all yours.”

Author Bio:AFlynn

Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

As Bad As She Wants to Be: Avery Flynn, Author of This Year’s Black, Dishes About Chicks Who Kick You-Know-What

Love badass chicks? So does Avery Flynn!

ThisYear_sBlack500

As Bad As She Wants To Be

All hail the badass chicks. The ones who kick ass, take names and give as good as they get. I love ‘em. They’re the hookers with a heart of gold in the Westerns. The avengers of the innocent in urban fantasy. The left hook of justice in graphic novels. And, of course, the righters of wrongs in romantic suspense. Basically badass chicks rock and here are five of my favorites from the movies.

 

5. Lara Croft, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

 

Yes, her proportions are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of whack in the video game and to an extent were messed with for the movie and its poster but you can’t deny that Lara has agency. Brains, skills and power, she’s got the trifecta of badassery.

 

4. O-Ren Ishii, Kill Bill Volume 2

 

When a woman is so badass she can behead a Yakuza boss for being a jerk about her mixed heritage without a blink of an eye …well …you kinda gotta love her even if she is a bad guy.

 

3. Selene, Underworld

 

 

Are the Underworld movies good? ….. *crickets* …. But Selene is awesome. She’s a vampire poured into black latex who is on a mission to find the truth and any vampire or lycan who gets in her way should be terrified because she doesn’t lose.

 

2. Sarah Conner, Terminator II

 

 

Forget the confused waif in Terminator. By the time we get to the second installment, Sarah is all mama bear determined to protect her cub. Does she take it a little far? Well …really how far is too far when the fate of the world rests on your ability to keep your kid alive?

 

  1. Ellen Ripley, Aliens

 

 

No one beats Ripley. No. One. This movie starts slow but once it gets going, there is no doubt that Ripley will come out on top parasitic alien or not.

This Year's Black - Banner

This Year’s Black
by Avery Flynn

 

“Incredible writing with witty humor and scorching sex scenes. This Year’s Black belongs at the top of everyone’s TBR list.”– New York Times bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell

A fighter since birth, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon would rather trade in her all-black wardrobe for head-to-toe hot pink than let anyone ever see the cracks in her tough exterior. But one night with a stranger changes everything.

Devin Harris may have given up his MMA fighting dreams for high fashion, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t always in control. So when someone embezzles millions under his watch, he isn’t going to let the private investigator working the case go it alone–even if she is the woman who blew him away in bed and then blew him off.

Just when it seems like it couldn’t get any hotter between Ryder and Devin, the case takes them to a tropical paradise where the danger increases. From the catwalk to the pineapple fields, they have to work together to track down the missing millions before the thief finds–and kills–
