Everybody tells me to stay away from him. But some impulses are too strong to fight.

What if you could save somebody by loving them?

My name is Taylor Donahue and I’m about to make the biggest mistake of my life.

I’m faced with a mystery that starts on a breathtaking Greek island with a sexy, yet notorious bad boy, Tomas Keller. He’s as hot as the sun and as hard to catch as the wind. His lies are as beautiful as his truths are painful.

His is a world of dark secrets. This much I know. He digs into my soul more than any man ever dared to before. Every step away from him makes me fall ever deeper into the web of his mysterious life. I can’t get him out of my mind.

The mystery of the missing girl and the rage of a murderous mob boss threaten his very existence, but I can’t help but play with his fire. Tomas is bigger than life. Danger follows him like a deathly shadow.

How do I stop him from getting under my skin?

Short Excerpt

We walk barefoot on the soft sand side by side, holding our shoes in our hands. The beach is deserted. Two old pedal boats sit forgotten by the edge of the water. My skin shudders and I get goose bumps as Tomas’s arm brushes against mine in the warm, calm night.

“It’s perfect here,” I say, when he comes to a halt to stare at the dark sea.

He has brought a bottle of red wine which we have decided not to open until after the swim.

Tomas quickly takes off his shirt, taking my breath away. He’s a shining excellence under the pale starlight. He’s a hypnotic specimen of muscle, smooth skin and radiant confidence. I doubt there’s been a single moment in his adult life he didn’t know he was destined to make women lose their minds.

“Well?” he says, a slight impatience on his gorgeous face.

I shake my head before I remove my blouse pulling it over my head. I’m in my bikini now and although he’s seen me in it plenty of times in the sunlight, I blush a little now in the starlight.

I step in the water cautiously, checking the temperature. It’s not too cold but it’s not warm either. It will take a while to get used to the temperature.

Or it would have if Tomas didn’t decide to lift me up and throw me several feet forward and under the water.

“What the hell?” I say, rising onto my feet. Only my head is above water.

“You should embrace the unexpected,” he says.

“And you should not expect so much,” I say.

“That’s the problem, Taylor,” he says, wrapping his strong arms around my waistline. “You’ll never be ready to walk straight into the deep.”

My heart stops as he leans in for a kiss. He’s actually kissing me and I didn’t have to initiate it. It’s all him.

His powerful chest rises and falls rhythmically against my body as his tongue explores my mouth hungrily. His right hand moves to the back of my head, pulling my wet hair in a tight grip.

I wrap my arms around his neck, lifting one leg to force his hips closer to mine. The world vanishes in the darkness and the salty fullness of his lips. I want nothing more than to taste him.

He untangles his lips from mine, gently tracing my face with his fingertips. “Are you sure you want this?” he says, breathing unevenly.

It takes me a second to make up my mind. “I do,” I say. “I want this.”

“I’m not so sure.”

“Why?”

“Because you deserve better.”

“It’s not a freaking marriage proposal,” I say, growing more and more eager for his touch. “I understand that. And you’re better than you think.”

I hear a faint laughter and I can’t tell if it’s because he thinks he’s not better at all or because he likes the sound of need in my voice. Either way, I don’t care. His body doesn’t lie. He’s totally and completely in this moment with me, hyperventilating and getting incredibly hard underneath his swimming trunks. So hard I can sense his erection even without touching it.

His need for me goes beyond the physical evidence. I feel something real in him, something real about the moment we’re sharing. And as his fingers travel up and down my arm, giving me tiny goose bumps again, I know that what I want more than anything else is to fall in love.

Give Away!!

Review: Redesigning Fate

Title: Redesigning Fate

Author: A.M. Wilson

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Heat-O-Meter Rating: R

Rating: 7

1

I left everything behind in order to be free. I should have known better than to think it would be so easy. All it took was one day at my new job.

He came for me.

I used a stranger to deter him, and in doing so, realized my heart began to beat again. Elias Brooks put me back together after Travis Dawson tore me apart. Travis makes it everybody’s business that I belong to him, including Elias, but he couldn’t be more wrong.

He’s stalking me.

I’m afraid he’s come back to hurt me again. He promises he’s not.
Travis pleads he’s only trying to keep me safe from none other than Elias.

Who do I trust?
Fate led me down the wrong path before. Who’s to say it won’t happen again?

2

Oh.My.God. There are not words for what just happened to me. This book was CRAZY! I mean that in the best possible way. I’m not even sure how to describe it without giving it all away and you should go into this book blind. The prologue kind of tells you how the book ends so you see it coming, but the book still manages an amazing build toward the event.
Warning though: semi-cliffhanger! I am dying to read the next one. I mean, I quite possibly might die from needing to know what the heck is going to happen. And what the heck is Elias involved in? So many questions.

Seriously though, clear a day and read this. Once you get started you are not going to stop until its finished so just be prepared.

Review: An Obsession with Vengeance

25045454

Title: An Obsession with Vengeance (Wanted Men #3)

Author: Nancy Haviland

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Heat O Meter: R 

Rating: 8 and a 1/2 

1

Maksim Kirov is a mobster who gets what he wants, both at his posh gentleman’s club in Hell’s Kitchen and in the bedroom. Sexy, dangerous, and obsessed with control, he’s risen through the ranks to become a highly respected leader in the tight-knit Tarasov crime syndicate. He rules with an iron fist…until he meets Sydney Martin.

The Australian-born Sydney is determined to refuse Maks’s advances, despite their electrifying chemistry. The owner of a neighboring nightclub, Sydney rules her own domain. But when a deal with a Mexican drug cartel goes terribly wrong, she has no choice but to turn to Maksim and the Tarasov organization for protection. Could giving in to their intense attraction be what saves both Maks and Sydney? Or will their all-consuming passion—and her shocking secret—destroy their lives?

In the hot and scandalous third installment of the Wanted Men series, lust and loyalty clash in New York’s mob underworld.

2

Ok, lets start with the obvious-I love mafia books!! Seriously, they are one of my favorite book tropes these days! Nancy Haviland does a great job with the genre too. I liked Sydney a great deal and I didn’t expect that. She is VERY independent but once you get a peek in her world you realize its because she had to be, not because she wanted to be independent. I respect that a lot! In books, we tout the heroines who are strong and independent and thats great; but its just as nice to occasionally see a heroine who can admit that she needs someone to take control for her. I think that a lot of authors couldn’t pull this off as well as Ms. Haviland did because you run the risk of the heroine seeming weak/useless/etc. That is not the case with Sydney. I loved Andrew too-such a great kid!!

Maks was not a character I liked in the previous books. He is a man whore and I HATE the man whores. It seems so common in books today but it is one thing that really just turns me off to books. But, because I enjoyed books 1 and 2 so much, I read this one and I am glad. Yes, Maks is a man whore and, at times, a major douche canoe. However, once he set his sights on Sydney, that was it for him. I’m glad this was multiple POV because you really needed to understand Maks thought process to really ‘get him’.

The pacing of the book felt off at times. There were parts that seemed to drag, then parts that went so fast I felt something was missing. It didn’t affect the overall story, but it did make the book easy for me to put down at times.
