A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars—even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

“Budget your time, readers, because this is one that's hard to put down.” —HeroesandHeartbreakers.com on DEADLY SILENCE

“All the more reason to get you out of town,” Heath said quietly.
She shook her head. “No. I’m staying.” Her words were brave, but her chest hurt. No way could she deal with a serial killer all on her own. She could train every day for the rest of her life and not end up as practiced or as deadly as Heath already was, and she knew it. “I understand you have other cases and people after you. So leave, and I’ll handle this myself.”
“Those are big words, baby,” he said softly.
Her lip quivered, and she bit down on it. “I know. I promised her, Heath. It’s all I have left to give to her.”
He paused, understanding crossing his expression. “Ah, sweetheart. Your sister wouldn’t want that for you.” His voice turned velvety and soft. Soothing.
Anya nodded. “I know. But she was my sister. We shared blood and part of a childhood. She took me trick-or-treating when I was five, and it’s one of my best memories. Then when I needed help as an adult, she didn’t hesitate. She came to me right away, like family. She was the first person I really cared about in far too long, and it hurts like hell that I got her killed.”
He breathed out, the emotion in his eyes deepening.
She swallowed. “I have to do this for her. Either you understand that or you don’t.”
“Why don’t you just let us handle it?”
She pressed her point. “I could, but you need me. I’m the bait.” Inwardly, she winced at the description. That wouldn’t help her to convince him. “Also, here’s the deal. This could be a long op. At some point, you have to leave and deal with whatever is haunting you from your past. When you do, I’ll just challenge him again, and next time you won’t be around to assist.”
“That’s extortion,” Heath said, amusement curving his lip.
She grinned. “Apparently I’m getting quite good at it.”
Heath shook his head. “You’re putting me in an untenable position, baby.”
“No, I’m not.” She shrugged out of his hold. Finally. “I’m not yours to protect, Heath. We’re not together, and we’re not responsible for each other.” The words sliced through her even as she said them. “You’ve been more than clear on that score.”
“There’s something here, Anya. Maybe something real and lasting, if I get everything done I need to do.”
She blinked. “What’s that?”
“The less you know the better. Believe me.”
“What a bunch of bullshit. Go back to your ‘This is fake’ proclamation,” she all but yelled. “Your position is one of work . . . and this is just work.”
His chin lifted. “You think this is just work?” The tone—low and filled with tension—zinged through her body.
Her legs trembled with the urge to take a step back. “Yes.”
“Want me to prove otherwise?” His eyes darkened to the color of the sky right before midnight hit.
As a threat, as a warning, it was damn good. But she’d gone too far to give in now. “You can’t.” Yeah, she’d just waved a red flag in front of a bull.
He didn’t move a muscle. His focus on her was so absolute, she wanted to squirm. “You’re into challenging dangerous men these days, aren’t you?”
She kept her stance. “You’re not all that dangerous, Heath.”
His smile stole her breath. Then he moved. Faster than she could track, he had her by the armpits and up in the air as he carried her toward the bedroom with such speed that her legs automatically wound around to clasp his rib cage. By the time she sucked in air to protest, her butt was on the bed, and he was flattening himself over her.
She struggled, her body on fire, fighting the urge to laugh out loud.
His mouth crushed hers, and she stilled.
Heat.
Fire.
True danger.
He held nothing back, kissing her hard, pressing her head into the comforter. His tongue worked hers, his powerful body plastered against hers, and his hands dug into her hair to hold her in place. Desire spun so quickly into need she couldn’t breathe, even when he wasn’t controlling her mouth.
She shifted against him, closing her eyes to kiss him back. This was what she’d wanted. All of this.
He nipped her lip, soothing the slight pain with another kiss. Then he traced along her jawline, kissing and nipping, finally reaching her earlobe, where he bit.
She arched against him, letting out a soft sigh.
“Anya.” His fingers tangled in her hair, and erotic pain tingled down her scalp. One of his strong arms slid around her waist and then down. His palm spread across her butt, and he ground her against his hard cock.
Pleasure swamped her, and mini explosions flew through her sex. The idea passed, somewhat fleetingly, that he wasn’t playing. Not at all.
Yet she couldn’t stop herself. Her knees widened, and she rubbed against him. “This feels real,” she whispered.

Review: Twist by Kylie Scott

Twist
(Dive Bar #2)
by Kylie Scott
Published:  4/11/17
Publisher:  St. Martin's Griffin

Goodreads  |  Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble

When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he's been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they're emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets... apart from the one that really matters.

And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.
 

My Thoughts:  After connecting online, Alex Parks decided to take things to the next level with the guy she'd been e-mailing with, after meeting him on an online dating site. His name is Eric Collins, and she planned to suprise him at by showing up in his bar for his birthday party. Little did she know, the guy she thouht she'd gotten to know online wasn't who she thought he was.  In fact, this awesome guy she'd grown to care a great deal about was not only NOT Eric Collins, but was actually his brother, Joe Collins, a hot alpha mess.  Needless to say, Joe Collins had a lot to explain.  Humiliated, hurt, and really angry, Alex turns on her heel and leaves, only to find Joe right behind her trying to make it right, something he spends the next few days working on really, really hard.

Review: Take Me Harder by Jackie Ashenden

Take Me Harder
Texas Bounty #3
by Jackie Ashenden
Published:  February 7, 2017
Publisher:  Loveswept

Goodreads  |  Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble

An ex-con with a bad-boy reputation falls for his childhood sweetheart—a good-girl cop chasing a ruthless killer—as the Texas Bounty series gets steamier than the Lone Star State.
 
Rush Redmond never expected freedom to taste so bittersweet. He spent eight years in jail doing someone else’s time, and for what? As an ex-con, Rush can’t work as a bounty hunter like his brothers—not in Texas. Better to drown his sorrows with a stiff drink and soft curves. Too bad the temptation he craves is a redhead with a badge: Ava St. George. Once upon a time, Rush would’ve done anything for the sheriff’s innocent daughter. Now he’s fighting the urge to let her sweet-talk him into some trouble he can’t afford.
 
Even though she’s a cop, Ava knows that sometimes justice means pushing the boundaries of the law. To track down her mother’s killer, she turns to the man with the county’s criminal underworld in his little black book. The boy she knew is still drop-dead gorgeous, with panty-dropping charm as smooth as his smile. But his sculpted arms and the menacing gleam in his eyes scream “Don’t mess with me.” Yet Ava needs Rush more than ever—in more ways than one.

About SHADE’S LADY:

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

“You’re full of sh*t!” I said, waving my hand grandly. My drink sloshed and I licked the side of the cup, because this whiskey was way too good to waste even a single drop. “Wonder Woman is better than Batman. She’s got real power, not just fancy toys. Although she has those, too, which means anything Batman can do, she can do better.”
  “Nope,” Shade said, shaking his head seriously. “She’s hot, I’ll give her that, but he’d take her in a fair fight.”
I held up a hand for him to wait as I polished off my booze.
  “No way. She’s a goddess of war and she’s one of the best hand-to-hand fighters in history. She’s got an invisible jet, for God’s sake. How can you compete with that? All he has is a bunch of money and the stupid Batmobile.”
  “Hand over the cup,” Shade said, narrowing his eyes.
  “Why?” I asked, narrowing mine right back. I was good and drunk now, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to be done for the night.
  “Demonstration,” he replied. “C’mon. Or are you chicken?”
  “What are we, kindergartners?”
  “You’re the one insisting Wonder Woman can take Batman,” he replied. “Chicken.”
Then he leaned toward me, raising a single finger to poke me in the center of my chest. Not copping a feel or anything remotely sexual, either. This was pure taunt. I handed him the cup and he tossed it on the floor, nearly falling off the bed in the process. I smirked—guess I wasn’t the only drunk one. Then he started listing to the side and I lunged for him, grabbing his shirt to keep him from going over.
Shade caught my arm, using the momentum to pull me onto his body with sudden force. My hands hit his chest and I raised my head to stare at him, stunned.
  “What the hell are you doing?” I asked. Shade wrapped his arms around my waist, holding me tight to his body.
  “Demonstrating.”

Review:  I can't tell you how excited I was to get back into the world of the Reapers.  After reading the series, you kind of feel like you are a part of their world and when they're absent for a while, you miss them.  Shade's Lady is, of course, Shade's story.  He is the National President of the Reaper's MC Club now and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him better. Then of course there is Mandy, who is Shade's Lady, or at least that is what she becomes.  I adored Mandy.  She's funny, strong, and you can't help but just love her.  The past has not been kind to her and she's been screwed over by more than one person/man in her life.  This is something that has left her determined to never get in a serious relationship again, convinced that she is cursed when it comes to men.  Mandy is a waitress at the Pit, and is trying to help her sister and her sister's three kids out since her sister divorced her sorry ex-husband, who is nothing but bad news.  

A series of very interesting events bring Shade and Mandy together, and while Shade isn't anymore interested in long-term relationship than Mandy is, as the two of them get to know each other better,  one day just keeps leading into the next and neither one seems to want things to end.  Shade is super badass and also hot, but he also is somewhat more....well let's just say he isn't the jerk that some of the other hotties have been at times in the other books.  He means business, and everyone does what he says, but he also has a power that radiates from him... in the way he looks, acts, and speaks, that has gotten him to where he is today.  

When danger threatens Mandy and her sister's family, he's there for them and takes care of it in Reaper's fashion, leaving Mandy's head spinning over what he's willing to do for her.  I loved watching their relationship develop, and also loved seeing her sister get her happy ending as well.  The story is great, the romance is hot, and fans of the series, as well as fans of MC romances are going to love Shade's Lady.  The only complaint I have is that I didn't want it to end.  Definitely pick this one up.

Review: Seduce Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates from Harlequin

Seduce Me Cowboy
(Copper Ridge #3)
by Maisey Yates
  • Mass Market Paperback: 224 pages
  • Publisher: Harlequin Desire (March 7, 2017)

Goodreads  |  Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble

When a rebellious rancher meets the pastor's daughter, it's a match made in…Copper Ridge!

Sheltered from her own desires for so long, Hayley Thompson wants to experience life. A new job at Gray Bear Construction is a start. The work she can handle. It's her boss—reclusive, sexy Jonathan Bear—who's scrambling her mind and her hormones…

No matter how successful he becomes, Jonathan's reputation will always precede him. And his type of woman is usually nothing like prim, innocent Hayley. Yet he can't resist unleashing the fire beneath her pent-up facade—even if seduction means losing his heart…
 

My Review:  Seduce Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates is one of those good books you just want to curl up in a chair and lose yourself in.  I mean who doesn't love a hot cowboy, even the ornery kind, like Jonathan Bear.  Jonathan Bear may be ornery, aloof,  known as a womanizer, and quite scary, but he finds he meets his match in Haley Thompson, the sweet little Pastor's daughter who is trying to strike out on her own and find herself.  

The last thing Haley expected, and definitely the last thing Jonathan Bear expected, was the effect they would have on each other, and that sweet Haley wasn't afraid to stand up to this cantankerous and sexy man.  She takes him by surprise and makes him feel and think things he isn't comfortable with, do things he doesn't normally do, and lose control in situations where he never loses control.  Haley, who is struggling to find out who she is and thinks she needs to leave the town she has lived in all her life in order to do that, discovers a strength within her self that she never thought she'd have, all thanks to this man that changes her life - even if it means she might lose him.

Seduce Me Cowboy is an wonderful story that is filled with romance, passion, and is something contemporary romance fans will love to lose themselves in.  Definetely add this to your TBR list.
