The Prophecy (Titan #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: ARC Review


History is on repeat…

Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that's standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them -- without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him -- everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.

A price must be paid…

Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best -- and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she's not fighting just for herself -- she's fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled….

Yvette's Review:

*While there are no spoilers in this review, please don’t read if you aren’t caught up with the first three books in The Titan Series.

“...to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made. For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled.”

Did anyone else read these lines in the blurb and get the chills? Because holy foreshadowing! That doesn’t exactly spell sunshine and rainbows for Seth and Josie, and it sure seems like things are going to get worse before they get better. With The Prophecy, Jennifer L. Armentrout brings the Titan Series to an end, though not before giving readers one last roller coaster of a ride packed with action, romance, and a storyline that’ll have your pulse pounding and keep you riveted from start to finish.

Since we last saw Seth and Josie in The Struggle, the world as they know it is essentially going to you know where in a handbasket. Not only are they reeling with the recent knowledge that Josie is pregnant, but Seth is quickly discovering that his act of vengeance against the Titans has severe and dire consequences. Josie and Seth are tasked with entombing the remaining Titans and saving everyone from more death, destruction, and chaos, all while dealing with absentee gods and feuding halves and pures. Did I mention the Titans don’t want to be entombed and are causing all sorts of problems? Each chapter brings new twists, turns, and obstacles for Seth and Josie to face and there’s certainly never a dull moment.

With the addition of several new faces and a handful of familiar characters in tow, The Prophecy follows Seth, Josie, and company as they attempt to save the world from being overtaken by the Titans. The storyline is action-packed, gasp-inducing, and unpredictable. With everything spinning out of control in the outside world, I appreciated the moments that focus solely on the romance between Seth and Josie. When they’re together, the book has a lighter, sweeter, more playful tone, which is a welcome respite from the heavy, ominous cloud that hovers over the rest of the narrative.

With The Prophecy, the fourth book in The Titan Series, Jennifer L. Armentrout has delivered a nonstop thrill ride. This book is intense. It’s jaw-dropping. It’s steamy (like woah). It’s foreboding, but also hopeful. It’ll have you gasping and shouting at your Kindle. It’ll tug on your heartstrings and wreak havoc with your emotions. It’s completely and utterly un-put-downable. The beginning, the ending, and everything in between is amazingly complex and awe-inspiring. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better finale for Seth and Josie’s story, which is one I think fans of the Titan Series will be thoroughly satisfied with.

Escort by Skye Warren: Release Blitz


There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I'm getting lucky. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that . . . she’s a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.

But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who's screwed.

Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely: Release Blitz w/ Excerpt & Giveaway


The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he's the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I've ever heard.

My mantra is simple -- Don't mix business with pleasure.

I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say -- that I want him to take me back to his flat -- tonight.

Except there's a catch...


One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure...

And it involves the toughest work ever -- resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we're spending our nights tangled together, and I don't want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I'll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing...unless one of you is leaving.

Forget oysters. Screw candlelight and champagne. A sexy accent is the truest aphrodisiac. I’m talking a weak-in-the-knees, flutters-all-over, fast-track to euphoria.

I’ve tried to analyze precisely why the sound of a man’s words can elicit this reaction in, frankly, millions of women. But when I break down an accent and study it like a chemical reaction, it’s nearly impossible to draw a logical conclusion. The ingredients in and of themselves don’t seem swoontastic enough.

And yet, accents have been known to induce major swooning.

That’s why, in my professional opinion, the sounds aren’t the rocket fuel for the tingles. Instead, it’s the associations evoked. Italian is food, wine, and days drenched in the pleasures of the senses. Australian is the laid-back twang of a surfer. A Southern drawl says a man will take his sweet time. Oh, yes, darlin’, will he ever.

But British? Dear God. A delicious British accent to my oh-so-American ears triggers wave after wave of goose bumps across my skin. My knees wobble. My stomach swoops. My skin heats. All the turned-on centers in my body are cranked to high.

A British accent is James Bond in a bottle. It’s sex, it’s style, it’s sophistication, and it’s the man who’ll find his way out of any jam, save the damsel, and do it all with silver cuff links on.

Wait. Make that platinum.

Charmed, indeed.

That’s why I say it’s a damn good thing I’m moving to a country that won’t be chock full of my personal vocal kryptonite, since I don’t have the time or inclination for distractions in my life right now. Look, I don’t have a single problem with the French accent whatsoever. A hot French man can voulez-vouscoucher avecmoi, if you know what I mean.

But it’s a British accent that turns me to Silly Putty, so in Paris I’ll be mighty fine.

Then, I meet him.

Switch Hitter by Sara Ney: Release Blitz Review


I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Same hair color.
Same legs.
Same face.

Except…I look harder.
At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.
It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

Michelle's Review:

Ever since reading the first How to Date a Douchebag book, Sara Ney's name has been at the top of my list of must read authors. So, of course, when I saw that Switch Hitter was being released as a standalone novella, I couldn't get my name on the review list fast enough. While this book was super short, even for a novella, and over way too fast, I was not at all disappointed. With Ney's signature sassy heroine that doesn't always know when to use a filter and smoking hot sports hero with a heart, Switch Hitter is an easy, fun, and enchanting read that will have you finishing in one sitting whether you set out to do so or not.

As always, Ney's hero, a sports superstar who is loved and chased by many an adoring fan, especially those of the female persuasion, is a bit of a surprise. Dash Amado may seem like a bit of a douche, after all he is dating Lucy who he really has next to no interest in. By association, Dash may appear to be arrogant, unintelligent, or womanizing, but he's really nothing like his friends and dimwitted teammates. Come to find, this good old fashioned, family man is smart, charming, and monogamous. Needless to say, you are sure to fall; fall fast, and fall hard for this catcher.

As for the situation with Lucy and Amelia, it starts our innocent and, of course, gets completely out of hand in no time which makes this read exceptionally cute and fun. Once we are off to the races, the anticipation is amazing and the tension will leave you breathless and needy. From there though, it's over practically before it has even begun, making the moment we've all been waiting for feel much too rushed, resolving the story much too quickly, and leaving far too much room for more.

I really enjoyed Switch Hitter, and if you are a Sara Ney and/or Douchebag series fan, you will love it as well. I just need MORE! I can't wait to get started on the Jock Hard series simply for any small glimpse or further info we can get on these two.

Playing His Way (The Players Club #4) by Erika Wilde: Blog Tour Excerpt



As the new owner of The Players Club, Brent "Mac" Mackenzie is all about dirty sex, wicked sin and carnal pleasure . . . served up his way. After being burned in the past, he's always been careful to chose experienced females who enjoy submitting to his dark desires, and are willing to play by his demanding rules without expecting any emotional attachments in return.

Hiring beautiful interior designer Stephanie Randall to create fantasy bedrooms within his club is his first mistake. She's curious, flirtatious, and makes his blood run hotter than it ever has before. Innocent when it comes to all the debauchery this sinful world has to offer, she wants to take a walk on the wild side . . . with him.

His second mistake? Saying yes. And his third? Falling for the one woman he knows he can never have.

About Erika Wilde:

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name?

As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!

Stephanie strolled toward Mac, a mischievous glimmer suddenly brightening her gorgeous blue eyes, putting him on alert. "I'd like to attend the Masquerade party at The Players Club on Saturday, to get a better feel for the club and what other fantasy elements might work for your members."

He stiffened at her unexpected request. The temptation of having her in this domain—wanting her but refusing to touch her—wasn't something he wanted to endure. And watching her possibly hook up with someone else, like Rick? Complete fucking agony.

He shook his head. "I don't think attending the Masquerade party is necessary. I'm sure you can come up with a few other ideas without being here when everything is in full swing, which is probably going to be more distracting, than helpful."

"What if I want to be here?" the little vixen proposed, her voice holding a hint of a challenge. "You know, to mix a little business with pleasure?"

His expression remained composed, his resolve, firm. "I'm going to have to say no."

She tipped her head to the side, studying him much too astutely. "I can always get an invitation from Jillian, you know," she said as she came closer and closer.

"No, you can't," he countered. "I put a freeze on any new invitations until I'm done going through the current membership."

She laughed softly, huskily, the sound like a stroke along his cock. Much like her hand was suddenly stroking down the length of his tie before giving it a playful tug. "Do I make you nervous, Mac?"

His hands curled into fists in his pockets, because it was taking extreme effort not to grasp her face in his palms and kiss that soft, plush, impudent mouth of hers—hot and hard and deep. "Do I look like a man who'd be intimidated by any woman?" he asked, his voice surprisingly steady.

She thought about that for a brief moment before giving her hair a subtle toss and replying. "Intimidated, no." Then a sexy, knowing smile curved her lips. "Nervous, definitely, because if you weren't a little uneasy about whatever this thing is between us, you wouldn't have an issue with me coming to the Masquerade party and being at the club."

"The last thing you make me feel is uneasy." Instead, her presence had lust pumping through him like a heady surge of adrenaline. She was certainly testing his control.

Her free hand came back up and splayed on his chest, the heat of her touch searing him through his dress shirt. "If I don't make you nervous, then prove it," she cajoled. "Let me come to the party on Saturday. I promise not to be too shocked by what I see."

His jaw clenched as she met his gaze and held it, so bold and brazen when she really had no idea what she was messing with, or what he was capable of. This woman was no shrinking violet, and she was the furthest thing from the kind of submissive, obedient female he preferred—and Jesus, Christ, his dick was hard as stone for her. This was a woman who liked having the advantage, who enjoyed a little power play, and fuck if that didn't make him want to pin her against the wall behind her and make it very clear who really had the upper hand between them.

"So, what will it be, Mr. MacMillan?" she murmured huskily. "Inviting me to the club on Saturday, or are you going to chicken out?"
