A few moments pass, and I consider going back inside. But I can’t bring myself to do it. All day we’ve been surrounded by people, and now that it is just the two of us, I want to wallow in the pleasure of having claimed this man. I want to watch him rounding the side of the house. I want to see the possessiveness with which he approaches it, knowing full well that he owns the property, the house, and everything inside it.
I want to see the heat that will flare in his eyes when he sees that I’m waiting for him, and I want to feel the brush of his lips on mine when he kisses me.
I want it—and Damien doesn’t disappoint.
The moment I see him, I feel the breath catch in my throat, his impact upon me no less intense after having been married now for years. He walks with a casual confidence, his body straight and strong, his chin high. He radiates power and control, but at the same time there is an easiness to him. A weekend quality that suggests that even though he can command a board room, he is equally skilled on a tennis court or the ski slopes.
Or in a bedroom.
I shiver, thinking about his particular skills in that area, and when his eyes meet mine and he flashes that slow, easy smile, I’m certain he knows exactly what I’m thinking.
“Why, Mrs. Stark,” he says, sliding one hand around my waist and pulling me to him. “You look like a woman with something on your mind.”
“I am,” I admit. I’m breathless now, my skin tingling in response to his touch.
“Whatever could you be thinking about?”
“You,” I admit, then rise onto my toes to meet his mouth. The kiss is deep, claiming, and I melt against him, more than willing to surrender to his touch.
I want to simply let go. To lose myself and the rest of this afternoon in his arms.

Flame by Chelle Bliss is wild with a dash of danger and a shot of sin. Are you ready for a second-chance biker romance that isn’t like all the others? Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and don’t make assumptions about bikers. It’s time to grab your leather jacket and hop of a bike for a ride with your next book boyfriend.
Sometimes we need to let loose and have a little fun but then get back to the daily grind and move on. What would you do if that week of sin walked into your life unexpectedly? What if you still had feelings and feared the truth would ruin everything?

I enjoyed reading the first book in the Men of Inked series and was surprised at the cliffhanger ending. If you like your books to have all plot points neatly wrapped up by the very last page please note this might not be the book for you.
This spicy read is best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.I can’t wait to see what happens in the second installment and hope I don’t have to wait too long.
I received an ARC from Bare Naked Words for a fair and honest review. I can’t wait to send a few to my friends for their next book adventure.

LUCA by Brenda Rothert is a contemporary romance, standalone, and it is the second title in the Chicago Blaze hockey romance series. Purchase your copy now!
Luca by Brenda Rothert
Chicago Blaze, #2
The Whole Latte:
Abby Daniels is haunted by one night that forever changed her life. Try as she might she fights falling asleep but when she meets Luca on a business trip she will discover that there’s more to fear than falling asleep. It’s possible that she might find love again, and that will be more terrifying than a few hours of sleep.
Two tragic events left Luca a guardian for his young nieces and nephew. Will he find a balance between playing hockey and parenthood? Who will he be able to trust? When Luca meets Abby his life will never be the same and he’s going to discover that he has the strength to take care of those he loves.
Brenda Rothert has carefully crafted a story that tugs at the heart and takes you on a journey of self-discovery and growth. Two lost souls will discover that their painful past, as well as heartache from loss, will help bring them together. If Abby and Luca can find a way to put their own needs first while still staying faithful to their job and family, they will find a new love that burns bright.
I love the banter, dialogue and tender care that is given to the younger characters in this story, it truly is a must read hockey romance. It has all the things you expect from Brenda but there is so much more that happens off the ice that leaves a lasting impact to put her on an auto-buy list! I can’t wait for the next installment, hopefully the summer will arrive quickly ;).
This inferno read will cause you to turn on the A/C, the fan, and take a cold shower. I received this ARC from Inkslinger PR for a fair and honest review.
“Hold still, Uncle Luca.”
My niece Emerson gives me her best glare, but she’s five and cute, so it makes me smile.
“I’m trying,” I tell her, checking out the dark purple polish she’s trying to brush onto my nails.
It’s not my inability to hold still that has more nail polish on my skin than my nails; it’s her technique. My “MANicure”, as my two nieces like to call it, started with my ten-year-old niece Cora and was then passed off to Emerson.
“I found yogurt!” Cora says as she breezes into my bathroom. “It’s got strawberries in the bottom, but that’s okay. This face mask will make you smell good, Uncle Luca.”
I try not to roll my eyes. It’ll be better than the last face mask they whipped up in the kitchen, which had butter in it and was a bitch to scrub off in the shower.
“I have to leave for practice in twenty-five minutes,” I remind the girls. “And I still need a shower. So you have ten more minutes to beautify me.”
“Will you paint my nails, too?” Cora asks me.
I was shit at painting nails when I first became the legal guardian of my two nieces and one nephew a little over a year ago. With practice, though, I’ve gotten pretty damn good at it.
“How long ‘til Gram and Gramps will be here?” Emerson asks, still painting my thumb nail even though she’s looking at me.
“About four hours ‘til their flight lands, then maybe an hour for them to get to the house.”
Her toothless grin of excitement makes me ignore the nail polish I can feel on my knuckle.
“Emerson!” Cora yells. “You ruined it! That looks awful.”
Cora picks up the bottle of purple nail polish and Emerson’s happy expression drops away.
“Give it to me,” Cora huffs, holding out her hand for the handle to the polish. “I never should have let you do it.”
“Hey, now.” I give Cora a sharp look. “She was doing her best.”
Cora’s eyes flood with tears. Emerson edges closer to me, because she knows what happens when Cora gets upset.
“He won’t let us do spa days if you mess it up!” Cora cries, glaring at her younger sister. “You ruined everything!”
“You didn’t ruin anything,” I tell Emerson. “And Cora, I never said we wouldn’t do this again. We can do a big spa day after my road trip, okay?”
Cora wipes her eyes and nods, still crying. It kills me to see her like this. As the oldest, she carries more of the weight from the deaths of her parents than her siblings. We’ve been in counseling for more than a year now, transitioning through the death of their mother, my sister-in-law Danielle, to the kids’ new life with me as their guardian. The clinical terms for what Cora struggles with—anxiety and controlling tendencies—are easier for me to handle than her breakdowns.
The tension leaves the room and Emerson starts my massage, which is pretty much just her karate chopping my shoulders, while Cora slathers strawberry yogurt onto my face.
“Is your shoulder better?” Cora asks me.
“Yep, it’s all good.”
“Think my mashage helped?” Emerson asks from behind me.
She can’t pronounce some words, and I kinda hope that’ll last longer, because it gets me every time.
“It definitely helped,” I tell her.
I tweaked my shoulder at practice yesterday, and Cora noticed me wince when I was taking out the trash last night. She worries about every sinus cold and bruise I get. I can’t blame the kid. Her dad, my brother Matt, died serving in Iraq and her mom passed away from cancer a year later.
“Hey, let’s get your nails painted, Cora,” I say after glancing at my watch. “I’ve only got five minutes til I have to hit the shower.” I turn to Emerson. “Can you go get the nail polish remover, peanut?”
“Okay.” She races from the room, brown curls flying behind her.
