Wolf.jpgScarlett Chase is every man’s wet dream.
As soon as I laid eyes on her, I knew she’d be mine.
That is, until I found out she was untouchable.
One kiss, one forbidden touch, will have me out on the streets and stripped of who I am.
Yet I want her. I need her. And I’m done following all these damn rules.

Wolf Stone is my obsession.
Ever since he pulled over on that empty road, I’ve been tormented by the man.
His possessive words and heated looks have me tightly wound.
One touch, and he lights me on fire.
But I want more.
I not only want him in my bed, I want to keep him for myself.
But he won’t budge, and now it’s up to me to entice his sleeping wolf.

Mature audiences only: Explicit Sexual Content.
No shifters here ladies… just pure alpha biker hotness!
If you love rough, possessive and dirty talking alphas, then this is the book for you.

review

I am always very happy to review work from new authors provided the synopsis sounds interesting.  And this one did.  It is unfortunate that the initial promise didn’t get translated to the page.

For a start, this is a novella.  In my experience, from similar length books I have read, it can be a real challenge for a writer to tick all the necessary boxes to ensure that the story doesn’t feel rushed or forced, and that the reader develops a connection to the characters.  I’m afraid that, for me at least, the author didn’t manage to avoid that pitfall.

And although the author has clearly stated that this is not a shifter book, at one point, it seemed (with references to “inner wolf” and “my wolf wanted a mate”) that this was the route that the story was going to go down.

I could have forgiven that slip.  But the narrative was a little cliched and the epilogue was a rushed summation that was required to bring everything to something of a conclusion.

There were elements of the story that worked well, but not enough overall to save the book for me I’m afraid.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

No. Miss Syn delivers sex at its best, and the more innocent you are the more her alpha males will attempt to defile you.

Review & #giveaway – Faking It with Damian by DJ Hunnam @DJHunnamAuthor @xpressotours

FakingItWithDamianTourBanner-1.png

Book details:

Faking It with Damian by DJ Hunnam
Publication date: January 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Erotica, Romance

Damian.jpgSynopsis:

I don’t do relationships… especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.

I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.

Faking It is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.

review

I’m going to start this review by saying that, overall, I really enjoyed it.  However, I really struggled to like Janice.  She struck me as a somewhat arrogant and self absorbed character, and despite attempts to soften her, she never quite won me over.

Damian is also all of those things, but for me at least, he was easier to connect with.  I don’t think that this is me applying double standards, I just felt that the way he presented was more relatable than Janice.

And steamy scenes?  Oh my.  This office romance might easily be considered as NSFW.

The wider story arc is a reasonable one.  The connection between the two lead characters is compelling and well executed.

At the risk of repeating myself, overall, I really enjoyed it!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

excerpt

From the moment I first saw my stalker, I was captivated.

The man with the black leather jacket and dark, spiky hair sits on a bench across the street from my house, staring down at a notebook.

Every night, he sits there at exactly ten p.m., looking off into the distance or writing his notes under the street light … or looking straight at me.

Like he is now.

Our eyes meet, and a sudden electrical current rushes through my veins.

I’m unable to look away from his piercing blue eyes, and I wonder … How long ago did he first see me?

I’ve only noticed him outside recently … watching over my house as if he’s guarding it. Guarding me.

I don’t know if I should be scared. If I should run or call the cops.

He’s never come close.

So is there any reason to act?

As long as he maintains his distance … an invisible line he doesn’t cross … I still feel safe. I can survive, knowing he is there, wherever I go.

I never know when or where I’m going to see him again.

I just know I will.

A hampered breath leaves my throat as he stares me down from across the street. His gaze feels like it penetrates through the closed windows. And for a brief second, I think I spot a hint of a smile.
