ARC Review, New Release & Giveaways: BOHEMIA NIGHTS by Lucy Lakestone

Bohemia Nights by Lucy Lakestone

A DELICIOUSLY INDECENT PROPOSAL …

Thea McKay likes her quiet, private life well enough. She creates pop-up paper art that no one ever sees, hangs out with her friends and admires men from afar. But then, at a play premiere, she meets gregarious video blogger Duncan Flyte. An incorrigible charmer with dubious motives, he’s handsome, hilarious and overwhelming. When he says he won’t stop showcasing her to his legions of fans unless she agrees to spend seven nights with him, her world turns upside down. The offer is both outrageous and tempting. Those seven nights don’t have to be passionate, but what if Thea wants them to be? Can she raise the stakes with this adorable Scottish import — especially when Duncan’s cheerful campaign to woo her may be just one more spectacular lie that will break her heart?

This is the fifth novel in the award-winning Bohemia Beach series, each a steamy standalone romance set among a circle of young artists in the enchanting Florida city they call home.

Review By Tamye

Disclosure:  I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my sweet bananas!  I absolutely fell in love with this book and its cast of characters.

While this is the fifth book in the Bohemia Beach series, it was the first book I’ve read in this series, and by this author.  It definitely stands well by itself.  No need to have read the previous four books to understand the story. That being said, I now want to read the first four books because the lead characters from each book were in the fifth book and I’m dying to hear their stories as well.

I glanced at the first paragraph and I was hooked.  I only wanted to see what point of view the book was written in, as I was in the midst of reading something else. But I couldn’t put it down, I had to to read more.  I had to know why Thea McKay thought Duncan Flyte was a ……. nope not saying.  Get the book and see for yourself.  But be warned.  You will be hooked as well.

The story easily comes to life.  Plopping you smack dab in the middle of this exciting set of friends, with a snarky, yet insecure heroine, who has no idea why this sexy Scot would want to have anything to do with her.  Therefore he must be using her for publicity.  Right? Smart guy that he is, Duncan uses Thea’s dislike of being in the public eye to his advantage.  In exchange for her spending seven night with him, Duncan promises to refrain from featuring Thea on his vlog every night during that time.  Then if at the end of the week she still wants him to get lost, he will.  Or course, Duncan is going to do his best to change her mind.  Thus the fun begins.

Thea agrees despite her certainty that Duncan will break her heart. Somehow her mouth said yes, while her head was saying, “No freaking way!”  It could have been her hormones, and she might have a bit of a crush. One she would deny to everyone, including herself.

Kudos to the author for weaving this tale in a such a way, that while being lighthearted and fun, it also had depth, self-discovery, and enough heat at times to light a fire.

I recommend this to anyone who wants a contemporary love story, that goes from “Hell No!” to “Oh Yes!”.  One that will make you yearn for one of your own.

Unwilling to waste his time on anger and regret for the years he was incarcerated, Cruz decides a fresh start is needed and with the help of fate or destiny he leaves the gang ridden streets of Chicago for the country life in Redemption County where he meets the sweet, yet sassy Rosie Marlow.

While the two hit it off from the start, the road to happiness isn’t without it’s hazards and obstacles. Cruz might have thought he left his past behind him, but others are not willing to let things lie. Then there is the fact that Rosie has her own secrets. Can she find the courage to open her past up to Cruz? Will it chase him away?

Record of Wrongs Excerpt © Sharon Kay 2017

Rosie dropped her own hand on top of Cruz’s, tracing small circles on his skin. “You make it sound so easy. How do you do it?”

“I know that if they won’t look past the surface, then I don’t have time for them. They’re not gonna change.”

“You’re right. People are pretty set in their ways. Whether that’s good or bad.” She slowly moved her fingers up his arm, tracing his tattoos. Her touch was tender yet so tempting. Did she realize the effect she had on him? “Didn’t mean to get in tizzy over that. What Thalia said about those guys, it could be nothing.”

“I might like your tizzies.”

“I can’t hide my emotions too well, I guess. Not a good poker face there.”

Turning back onto the main road, Cruz hit the gas and chuckled.

“Though if I was playing for real, then watch out.” She made a sweeping motion in the air in front of her face. “No one knows what I’m thinking.”

What did she just say? He swung a glance to her. “You play poker?”

“Sure do.”

“For real?” That was the last thing he’d expect from his little country girl. “Where’d you learn?”

“Shane taught me.” She twisted in the seat so she was nearly sideways, facing him. “After my accident, I had months of recovery where I just sat around. I read tons of books and watched movies, but I got to a point where I needed something else to do.”

“No shit.”

“So he taught me, and when I got good enough, he’d bring friends over and we’d all play. For chips, of course. I had no income.”

“You keep surprising me, Rosie-girl.”

“Why? Do you play?”

“Yeah.”

“Well then, there you go.” She made a satisfied mm-hmm. “That may be the first thing we have in common.”

He laughed, because she was right. Well, almost. He had a hunch about one other thing, which he hoped to pursue ASAP.

“Wanna play?” she asked softly, reaching to idly caress his bicep.

They were almost at her driveway and her hands were magic on his arm. He’d played poker when everything he had was on the line, both before prison and inside. “I’d have to go easy on you.”

She sucked in a breath. “You did not just say that. Cruz, I’d whip you so bad, this truck would belong to me.”

“Oh really?” He turned into her drive. “Those are fighting words.” He turned to find her eyes locked on him in a playful challenge.

“Damn straight they are.”

He slid his hand from her knee to her smooth thigh. “All right. You’re on, pretty girl.”

“Yes!” She straightened as they neared her house, and he instantly missed her hands on him. “Hmm. What should the stakes be?” She tapped finger on her chin.

He reached the front yard and threw the vehicle in park. Fucking hell. He knew exactly what the stakes should be. He got out and met her as she hopped out and stood by the truck.

“Money? Dinner?” She tilted her head as he moved in close. “Something else?”

He laid both hands on the metal behind her, caging her in his arms. “Something else.”

“Yeah? Like what?” Blue eyes flashed with a delighted spark. “What do you feel like losing?’

His body had set its cross hairs on Rosie the day they met. He brushed one hand along her shoulder, stopping at the straps of her doubled-up tank tops. He tugged gently. “Our clothes.”

Collaring His Cadet by Claire Thompson

Amazon - Read Free With Kindle Unlimited

Bondage, discipline, sadomasochism… Masters and slaves, whips and chains… What have I gotten myself into?

My name is Remy, Cadet Remy Harris, and I always show the world my tough-girl side — ready, willing and able to beat any guy at any challenge. When I enrolled at a venerable Southern military college, I never dreamed I’d be inducted into the secret BDSM society that pervades the campus and military at every level.

My submissive fantasies explode as I’m drawn into a dark, edgy world of erotic servitude, training and punishment. Each new experience pushes my masochistic boundaries, but the yearning in my submissive soul remains. Though I’m assured the Slave Corps is the be-all and end-all for serious slave girls, my doubts and questions linger. Maybe I just don’t have what it takes for true submission?

Then I meet Him…

Collaring His Cadet by Claire Thompson Teaser 1

Excerpt:
Mistress Janet led me to the circle of chairs and remained standing beside me. “Allow me to present Remy Harris. She has no previous formal training, so please keep that in mind as you put her through her trials.”

Put her through her trials.

Her words jolted me into another round of internal questioning. What the hell was I doing there? What had I signed up for? I glanced nervously from face to face, settling at last on Jacob, who continued to smile his bland, ironic smile.

Was there still time to back out?

Stand and fight, I reminded myself. Never surrender.

Mistress Janet placed cool fingers on my arm. “I believe you are already acquainted with Master Jacob?

I nodded, resisting the urge to say something sarcastic about the precise nature of our acquaintance. “Yes, ma’am.”

“Yes, Mistress,” she said in a soft but steely voice.

“Yes, Mistress,” I promptly amended.

“And this is Mistress Diane”—she nodded toward the woman and then turned toward the other guy—”and Master Floyd.”

Floyd? Who the hell was named Floyd?

Keeping my face military impassive and respectful, I nodded politely toward each of them.

Turning back to me, Mistress Janet said, “You’re here of your own free will, is that correct?”

“Yes, Mistress,” I managed, pleased my voice sounded steady, even if my legs had turned to jelly.

“You are about to undergo a series of trials devised by this committee to determine your suitability,” she continued. “If you pass and choose to join the Slave Corps, you will be admitted as a novice. Based on your predilections”—I must have looked blank at the unfamiliar word, because she clarified—”your sensual hardwiring, you’ll either be trained as a potential slave or a potential Dominant. Watching your reaction the other night, along with input from Master Jacob, we will conduct the trials with the assumption you’re a submissive.”

No point in denying it. Without looking at Jacob, I replied, “Yes, ma’am, er, Mistress.”

“Good,” she said crisply. She took her seat beside the others. “Start by removing your uniform. Then you will kneel on the floor facing us, forehead touching the ground, arms extended in front of you along the ground.”

I glanced from face to face. They were regarding me intently. Jacob’s expression was slightly mocking, as if challenging me to fail.

Fuck him.

Bending down, I unlaced my boots. I pulled them off, along with my socks, and set them neatly aside. Standing tall, I took a breath and reached for the top button of my blouse, willing my hands not to shake. As I shrugged the garment from my shoulders, I ordered myself not to blush.

As their eyes burned into my flesh, I reached behind my back and unhooked my bra. My torso bare, I became uncomfortably aware of my breasts, wishing as I always did that they were small and high, instead of full and large. In spite of my discomfort, my nipples tingled and hardened under the four Doms’ relentless gazes.

With fumbling fingers, I opened my fly, pushed my pants and underwear down past my hips and kicked out of them. I glanced at Mistress Janet, who gave me a small nod as if to say, “Go on.”

Glad to hide my bare body, I lowered myself to the floor and leaned forward until my forehead touched the carpet. I extended my arms in front of me. My heart was mutinying in my chest, my gut clenched into a ball as I waited for whatever was coming next. I tried to take in a deep breath and release it slowly in an effort to relax, but it came out as a heaving shudder.

I heard the sound of a chair scraping back, and then saw Mistress Janet’s feet appear in my peripheral vision. Reflexively, I lifted my head to look up at her.

Mistress Janet placed a firm hand on the top of my head, pushing it back down to the floor. “Stay in position. I’m going to blindfold you.” When my forehead was once more touching the carpet, she fitted what felt like a sleep mask over my eyes.

She tapped my shoulder. “Stand up, feet flat and shoulder-width apart, hands locked behind your head.”

I stood awkwardly, slightly off balance because of the blindfold. Though my heart was still pounding and my lungs seemed to have collapsed, something else was happening too. Assuming that position—blindfolded, naked and on display—brought about that familiar, softening release I had experienced when Jacob had commanded me in his bedroom. As nervous and uncertain as I was, I couldn’t deny my excitement.

I lifted my arms as instructed and stood waiting in front of the four judges, my nipples tingling, my clit swelling. This was it. I was poised at the top of a steep slope, ready to fly down this mountain of adventure. I sensed all it would take was one little push.

“Very nice,” murmured Mistress Diane. “Such supple youth, such strength, and yet she’s every bit a woman, no doubt about that.”

I felt the heat of a flush rise up my neck and into my face, but I stood my ground, clenching my interlaced fingers against the back of my head to keep from reflexively covering my body.

“Too bad she cuts her hair like a goddamned boy,” Master Floyd interjected. “All these GI Janes trying to act like guys. Enough to make you puke.”

My distaste for the man blossomed into full dislike.

“Let’s see how she handles a whipping,” Jacob said mildly, as if he didn’t care one way or the other.

A whipping!

I drew in a sharp breath, my muscles tensing as adrenaline squirted into my bloodstream. At the same time, I couldn’t deny the hot pulse of desire that surged through me as my skin tingled with anticipation.

I heard some movement, and a moment later two large, masculine hands gripped my shoulders from behind.

Review By Tamye

☕☕☕☕

Gerri Walker has her work cut out for her in this unique look at the PDA Kindle World.

Although Chase and Kelli know in their hearts who they want. Their heads and duty push them in a different direction. Due to the town being made up with a mish mash of varying breeds of shifter, the hierarchy is abnormal, the customs and traditions strange yet inflexible. The major, Chase’s father is unwilling to change, even at the expense of the dwindling pack numbers. Can Gerri help set thing right?

This was an interesting look into a unique shifter community. How the old ways fight against the new. How sometimes you have to do what you think is right, not what you’ve been told is so. The author pulled me into her world, introducing me to some loveable, and some not so loveable characters. With a fluid and entertaining style she kept me entertained and curious to see what happened next.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good shifter romance. I know I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.

Disclosure: I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Kelli and Chase grew up together and know the rules: when he comes of age, he’s got to choose a shifter to bond with, period. And Kelli’s not a shifter. There isn’t any way around biology.

But chemistry is something else entirely, and Kelli did the one thing she never thought she could do—move to the city to escape it. Her feelings left her no other choice. It was the only way she could see for Chase to follow his shifter destiny.

Now, Chase is getting a divorce from the shifter who was supposed to be his bonded mate, and some crazy friend of his Grandma is telling him he can bond with humans. It’s not the way things have always been in their little shifter community, but Geri Wilder keeps telling him they’ve been doing things backward.

Now that Kelli is back, Chase is angry and confused, seeing the truth of the mistakes they’ve made. However, Kelli is only in town to plan her wedding.

To someone else.
