Title: Living in Sin

Author: Isabel Lucero

Genre: Erotic Romance

Publication Date: January 1, 2014

Tour Host: Dreams Come True Promotions

**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*

*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

Holy hotness and burning panties! I really wasn’t impressed at first I thought it was going to be a Penthouse forum book. You know the ones I’m talking about…sex, tiny story, sex, small character development,  and boom sex. Now don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for a book like that. I enjoy them. This is a review and so I’ll review it for you. The characters do get fleshed out. The storyline is there. Yes, there are some smoking hot bedroom(or office) scenes. I like some of the conflict that comes into the story. It creates some literary tension that makes you wonder when the whole thing will crash and burn. I give this a solid four star rating. The writing isn’t exactly F. Scott Fitzgerald but hey we can’t all be classic literature. The chemistry is palpable between the two characters and the conflict is relatable.

Isabel Lucero is a military wife who has been lucky enough to travel the world, and see some amazing sights. She has been married to her best friend for ten years, and together they have two of the most beautiful children in the world. She and her husband are Junior High Sweethearts, a couple who are truly meant to be together. One day, their love story might make it into a book.

Isabel is the middle name of the author, and Lucero is her maiden name. Together they create her pen name. She was born in a small town in New Mexico, and was more than happy to move far, far away.

She is a collector of high heels and tattoos, and is highly obsessed with both. She owns a crazy, little Miniature Pinscher who thinks he’s a Doberman. His name is Tyson.

Isabel has always been an avid reader, able to devour books in a day or two. With her now focusing on writing, the reading has slowed, but her love for reading is still there.

Something noteworthy is that Isabel loves to hear from her readers. Never hesitate to get in touch. She’s always willing and ready to talk about anything. If you enjoy this book, she encourages you to not only let her know, but let the world know. Goodreads, Amazon, book blogs, groups, etc. She understands that word of mouth is the best form of promotion.

Finding Willow by Dawn Robertson

image

Blurb
Sex is all I have ever known. 
It started at an early age, and never stopped.
Men, women, threesomes, foursomes, orgies. Fuck it, whatever goes.

Twenty eight years old and nothing to show for my life but a fat bank account, and an impressive porn catalogue; all featuring yours truly; Starburst Bloom.

I’m at a crossroads, and I have a choice to make. I choose salvation.
I choose life. I choose myself, for the first time ever.

I will find her. I will find the life I was forced to give up. 
I just pray that he stays out of my way.

Finding Willow is for 18+ audiences. 
There is a mild abuse flashback, which may not be suitable for all readers.

Our Thoughts
We have enjoyed both books by Robertson. In her debut novel, Hers, we are introduced to a fairly one dimensional character named Star. This is her book! We love how in both installments of the Hers series Robertson takes broken and abused women, gives them a back bone, and shows them rise from the ashes of life. Its kind of a bad girl goes good tale. A new twist on the good girl/bad girl theme. Star becomes a full and loveable character in this book. You watch her fight some difficult battles and still hold her head high and gaze to the future. She ends up facing some of the hurts of her past and coming out a better person for it, full of hope. We give this gritty love story 4.5 stars. Just a disclaimer the f bomb is used excessively, over 500 times. We usually don’t sweat this sort of thing but it was so prevalent.

About the author:
Dawn Robertson is a twenty-something indie erotic romance, and mother.  She lives in sunny senior citizen packed Florida, where she wrangles her kids, and Pitbull puppy.

Dawn can normally be found swearing like a sailor, making late night drive-thru appearances, arguing with her kids (or being run over by their power wheels),  reading a steamy romance while hiding in her bathroom, writing her little heart out on her laptop (or dragging her Macbook to the Genius bar praying they can save her latest work in progress), or sipping on a smoothie. She loves to hear from her fans, readers, and authors alike. Feel free to drop her a message.

Dawn rarely takes life seriously, so be sure to expect heavy sarcasm from her. She is also the life of the party, so be sure to meet up with her at one of the many author events she will be attending in the next couple months. Buy her a shot of whiskey, and she will love you for life.

I agree with Manda this is a book full of steamy bedroom(bathroom, office, public) scenes. There’s also a little ff and ffm action. The end is a true romance book ending sigh…

Sinful Series

image

Blurb:

Sin at Sea:

When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.

Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters. 

Along the way, Alysin learns that she won’t have to fake an orgasm if she’s with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?
Our Thoughts
Vixen in Vegas:

It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.

Soon Alysin will be tested. 

After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules. 

Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?

Our Thoughts
The review for this book has definitely been a process. After Sin at Sea I figured these would be light and spicy reads. Sin and BE were superficial characters for me at the beginning of Vixens. They looked good and had lots of hot sex in exotic locales. But Vixens in Vegas changed that. As you start to get deeper into their characters and situations you figure out more about them. Thier love grows and Nichols does an excellent job of taking an exciting puppy love into the deeper lasting territory. Then of course life comes into play and you have to wonder can they make it. The end completely crushed me! I didn’t finish that last chapter for an hour because I was sure of what had happens. Then I finally read it I was close but not right thank god! This is defiantly a 4.5 star book it finally brings depth to a superficial cast of characters and opens your heart.

About the Author
What made her decide to be an erotica author?

Simple.

How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?

Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn’t believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life’s cliche moments spicy.

Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.

About The Author
Braxton Cole lives in the Pacific Northwest where she spends most of her time holed up in her office writing stories. When she’s not writing, she can be found riding her bike, hiking the fabulous local trails, chasing her kids, or wishing that her thumb was a little more green. She has a bad habit of killing what she tries to grow, but hasn’t given up hopes of one day being a successful urban farmer.
Braxton writes erotic romance because romance is the stuff that makes life great, and sex is fun. The two belong together, both in life and in fiction.

Mood Music
Every song on this list is here for the same reason. These are all cool, super sexy, deeply sensual songs. This is the playlist you lit up with some strategically placed candles, some massage oil, and some very dirty intentions.  A few of the songs on this list are old school, so the videos are not amazing. But you really do owe it to yourself to listen. Especially the Nina Simone. Damn.

2. Skin, Rihanna

3. Do I Move You, Nina Simone
