June Wine Club Review: Necessary Force by D. D. Ayres (K-9 Rescue 0.5)




Book: 
Necessary Force by D. D. Ayres
Wine: 
2011 SAUVIGNON BLANC 
by The Loyal Companion
         


Lexi: Necessary Force has a great beginning! The heroine, Georgiana, is climbing out of bed. Out from under the sexy man she met at her photo shoot. Ayres describes his naked glory very artistically, exactly how Georgie sees him. What a great scene, and the rest of the novella keeps that same quality! I dare either of you to tell me you didn’t love that opening.

Crystal: That was definitely one of the most sensual openings I have ever read. I loved Georgie's internal dialogue at the time, describing what she saw while taking pictures of the very nekkid and oh-so-sexy man in her bed. How the bedding was "drawn up at a right angle to offer tantalizing shadowy glimpses of his impressive equipment." Oh-la-la! 

Crystal L: I have to admit that my brain stuck on "impressive equipment" and stayed there for a while, lol. But when I came out of my sexy coma I went back, re-read the section again and appreciated the visual treat that Ayers gave us even more. I loved that opening.

Blog Blitz: Molly McAdams' SHARING YOU (Guest Post/Giveaway)




Kamryn Cunningham aka “The Other Woman”

What, oh what is there to say about Kamryn? She’s a whole lot of everything compacted into one. Kamryn grew up in a world that she hated—a world full of labels, money, power-hungry people, and couples who are together only for status. With the high status of her family, she didn’t have many options on straying from this world. Things were expected of her, her life was planned out pretty much from day one, and those she loved most were used against her as a way of keeping her on her perfectly planned path. So she did the only thing she could do, she disappeared. After years of planning, she took off, changed her look, moved across the country, and opened the bakery she’d always wanted.

Even with her new best friend constantly trying to set her up, she stays away from men. She wants to just be herself, enjoy this time where she’s doing what she wants, and focus on baking. She isn’t the kind of girl who needs a man, and after the train wreck of a forced relationship back home, she’d prefer not to have one at all! But then she meets Brody—her best friend’s brother-in-law.

Lose a bet, lose your heart...
What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party. It's awkward, but survivable . . . until Jake stops acting like a jerk, and starts acting like the man she'd always hoped he could be.
If watching your brother marry your best friend is weird, being attracted to your best friend's other best friend is downright bizarre. Unfortunately for Jake, Char hasn't forgotten how he once tossed her aside. Worse still, Jake's already-nutty grandma is even crazier about Char. Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it . . .

MAGICALLY SWEET & EROTICALLY SPICY with STAR-CROSSED LOVERS!

Ivy by Dahlia Donovan (Guest Post)

Please welcome Dahlia Donovan joining us with her recent paranormal romance, IVY!



Want in on a little known author secret?

We make a lot of shit up.

So when I started getting into the nitty gritty of including a paranormal element to Ivy, I did what any good author does and researched the pack behaviour of wolves.  It wasn’t until I was well into the writing of the first version of Ivy that the idea of a group of shifters that were of misfits who wouldn’t normally go together came to me.   They insinuated themselves into my brain and wouldn’t shut up.

I did what any good writer would do, I wrote about them.

The Blackbird pack currently consists of wolves, panthers, cougars and foxes.

June 24th 2014 by Atria Books

Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her. 

Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about. 

If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…

Christy Knight grew up in Destiny, Ohio, but lately she feels that her future lies elsewhere. Her parents are gone and the beautiful jewelry she creates doesn't pay the bills. Maybe it's time for Christy to grow up and find a guy who's smart, sexy, and solvent. Her rugged handyman neighbor fits the first two categories, but he's all wrong for her. If only he didn't have such captivating blue eyes.

Welcome to the Point

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who’s bad . . . meet Shane Baxter.

Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he’s the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn’t care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there’s a new player in the game, and she’s much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.

Bax terrifies her, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.
