Hello all! How are you doing today? Welcome to another week of the Top Ten Tuesday meme created byThat Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading (submitted by Jana’s mom). I don’t really eat or drink much while reading. But in the off chance I am eating or drinking something, it would be one of these below!
Tea – Green or Lemon Zinger
Lemonade (my favorite summer drink)
Homemade Banana Muffins
What’s your favorite snack or drink to have while reading?
Dante Sinclair never cared about his family’s money. All the young billionaire ever wanted was to be a cop; and now that he’s a homicide detective in Los Angeles, he’s a damn good one. But when he is injured and loses his partner in the line of duty, he returns to his vacation home in Amesport, Maine, to recover.
Sarah Baxter, a brilliant young doctor still struggling with her stifled upbringing, has recently moved from Chicago to sleepy Amesport to escape her past, hoping to find peace. When Sarah is assigned to Dante’s case, there’s an instant heat between them. They couldn’t possibly be more different, yet their igniting passion is impossible to ignore. As new feelings awaken within Sarah, her haunted past returns, threatening her once again. But can Dante overcome his grief and discover the secrets Sarah is hiding in time to protect and rescue her?
I picked this up on a whim via Kindle Unlimited (I’m trying it out again as I had it before and I’m really enjoying it right now) that came as both an e-book and on Audible. Elizabeth Powers is such a perfect narrator for this book. I don’t think I could envision anybody else reading for this book. I loved her voices she had for each character and she really helped set the scene and paint a picture of what was actually happening in the story.
Boy have I been sucked in. The Sinclair family has taken me by the wrist and not let go. I am in love with this story. I found every part of it relatable, true and right from the heart. I appreciated and loved the relationship between Sarah and Dante from the second we are introduced to the both of them. Sarah (hey girl we have the same name) is an intelligent Doctor who didn’t know how to have fun and let loose. She was brought up to study, work hard and get a great job as soon as possible. Dante on the other hand is a billionaire who doesn’t give a hoot about money and only has a real passion for his job as a homicide detective in Los Angeles. For unforeseen, circumstances both end up in the Amesport, Maine
If you are not into very steamy sex scenes in books then I suggest that you steer clear from this series. Hello description and hello passion. JS Scott really knows how to bring those kind of scenes to life. It is honestly amazing.
I have said this time and time again, if an author can make me envision what is happening in my own mind while I am reading I know I am reading a great book. J.S.Scott is a great storyteller she knows just the right amount of details that you need to understand what’s going on in any given story. I one-hundred percent think I am obsessed with the Sinclair family and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series.
Alpha Male? ✔️
Unbelievably steamy sex scenes? ✔️✔️
Tenderness and love that jumps right out in your face? ✔️✔️✔️
Absolutely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars from me. This is definitely on my list of favorite books read into 2019!
About the Author:
J.S. “Jan” Scott is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling romance author. She’s an avid reader of all types of books and literature, but romance has always been her genre of choice. Writing what she loves to read, Jan pens both contemporary and paranormal romances. They are almost always steamy, generally feature an alpha male, and include a happily ever after—she just can’t seem to write them any other way! Jan lives in the beautiful Rocky Mountains with her husband and two very spoiled German shepherds, and she loves to connect with readers.
Brie Bennett’s life is about to change the day Sir Thane Davis discovers her working in a tiny tobacco shop…
His invitation to a renowned school, famous for its submissive training, will rock her world. She has no idea the things that will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed—but she’s eager to find out.
Let me start this review by saying if you do not like reading about BDSM or don’t like the community overall I don’t suggest reading this book. Much of this book is sex and smutty content (perfect for me), so if you do not like this kind of content steer clear.
This is my first read by Red Phoenix and I found it very interesting. Bre Bennett never dreamed about it, or even thought herself as a submissive, that is until a mysterious and handsome stranger comes into her job and leaves her a card for The Submissive Training Center. Not an ordinary training center, this place is a school for people interested in the BDSM lifestyle, specifically Submissives. To see if they are fit or capable of living and being in the community.
I do not want to give too much away, but in this first book we go through the journey with Bre while she is in Submissive school, learning the ins and outs on what it takes and how it feels to be a Submissive. This was hot, steamy, unbelievably emotional for me as a reader (remind me to do a post on how I rate books, this will make since if I explain that), and raw. Overall I liked the story but it just felt really drawn out to me. Though I understand that because of the content of this book, it has to be drawn out and explained so that the reader understands the BDSM dynamic. Which I really appreciated. I think that Red Phoenix did a great job at explaining the lifestyle and found that most of it seemed fairly accurate. Unlike another book by another author I’m not going to name. This was for sure a solid ⭐⭐⭐⭐ star read.
About the Author:
Red Phoenix is a USA Today Best Selling and award winning author who’s steamy erotic romance novels have paved her path to notoriety. While Red couldn’t possibly choose a favorite love story from her body of work, Brie’s Submission was the series that stole the hearts of readers across the world. As Brie’s story illustrates, Red is a big believer in the idea that love can truly conquer all, and her 27 years of happy marriage proves that she speaks from experience. It’s that very experience she uses to write relatable characters we can’t help but cheer on, pit them against trials and challenges that leave our hearts in our throats, and reward her characters and readers alike with wonderfully stimulating scenes of sensual pleasure.
“Erotica is delicious fantasy created to entice both the mind and body.” ~Red Phoenix
We come from two different worlds. I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower. I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch. Our paths never should have crossed. We never should have met. That doesn’t change the facts. I would sell my soul to taste those red lips. Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh. Burn in hell to have a single night. Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will. If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.
Making the jump from corporate lawyer to romance author was a leap of faith that New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Meghan March will never regret. With over thirty titles published, she has sold millions of books in nearly a dozen languages to fellow romance-lovers around the world. A nomad at heart, she can currently be found in the woods of the Pacific Northwest, living her happily ever after with her real-life alpha hero.
