The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

 

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

MY REVIEW: 

**4.5 stars**

Wow! Definitely got very steamy, very quickly after about 60% or so. Wow! Honestly, I love all 3 brothers. I definitely want to learn more about Quinn and just in general see more of the brothers. They are definitely something to swoon over. Gavin is an interesting character and I’m interested to learn about his past, a particular event and what happened. It does end in a cliffhanger, but nothing to “die” over. :)
I’m definitely curious to see what direction this will take and what will happen with the ending.

Release Launch: Monster Screw by Kendall Ryan

 

 

 

MSboxsetbanner

 

 

Monster Screw (1)First there was SCREWED.

Then there was MONSTER PRICK.

Now…

… There’s MONSTER SCREW!!!!

This brand new boxed set features both New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal mega-bestselling sexy, FUNNY, HOT romances for one low price. Just $2.99 on release day, and $5.99 after.

So, are you ready for your MONSTER SCREW??

 

 

 

About Screwed:

I’m young, fit, attractive, and loaded. Not to mention I’m packing a sizable bulge below the belt. It’s a combination that drops panties on a regular basis.

Yay, me, right?

But my cock, troublemaker that he is, has been confined to my trousers by my business partner. A concession I agreed to, and one that’s never been hard to enforce until Emery moves in across the hall. She’s smart, young, determined, and sexy as hell. I want a taste. I won’t stop until I’m buried deep inside the succulent new-in-town brunette.

After being warned about my past, she does her best to steer clear, but I’m about to show her that underneath it all, I’m a guy with a heart of gold and a cock of steel.

My name is Hayden Oliver, and this is my story.

 

About Monster Prick:

Over my dead body.

That’s what I told Gracie when she informed me of her plan to pick some random guy she met online to get rid of her pesky virginity.

If anyone is touching her, it’s going to be me.

I shouldn’t even be considering it, but I can’t get it out of my head: her, under me, begging me.

***

Arrogant. Cocky. Prick.

Those are the words I’d use to describe my older brother’s dangerously handsome best friend.

When he learned of my plan to kick off my white cotton briefs, ditching my good girl persona once and for all by losing my virginity to the first eligible bachelor I could find, he flipped out. Said over his dead body.

He says if anyone’s going to do it, it’s going to be him.

I hate that I’m even considering his offer.

But I am … I sooo am.

Ever since he suggested it, all I can think about is his cocky smile on those full lips as he’s driving in to me.

But if we cross that line … will I ever be able to go back?

 

MONSTER PRICK, a sexy romantic comedy, is a spin off novella from SCREWED, but can be read as a standalone, as it features a new couple.

My Reading Stack (#23)

reading stackWhat I Finished This Week:

screwed sweet home faking it harry potter and the half blood prince

  • Screwed by Kendall Ryan: Very quick, sexual tension filled read! I loved the corny banter between Hayden and Emery. I do wish we got a little more history on the 2 or more to their story. Hayden wasn’t my favorite male character, I did find him immature at times… But that’s not to say that I still loved him, just not on my top book boyfriends list. He’s too hot (at least how he’s described) to not be on the list at all. ;) This is now my 2nd book by Kendall and I’ve liked both, I’m excited to read more of her books. :)
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆
  • Sweet Home by Tillie Cole: Why… WHY did I wait until now to read this beautiful book?!?!?! I absolutely ADORED this book! It’s been awhile since I’ve been THIS affected by a book. Easily a top favorite of the year, no questions asked. Rome has a place on the very top of my book boyfriend list. Everything about this book was amazing. I can’t stop gushing about this book!!!!! I wish Goodreads allowed emojis because I feel it can express my feelings easier than trying to type it out because I can’t form words for this book… I seriously can’t understand why i waited this long… Tillie’s writing is absolutely beautiful!! I did see some things coming, but that didn’t stop the suspense or the drama from being enjoyable (well, okay, maybe not enjoyable, but you get what I mean… hopefully). Literally can’t form words! I’m so excited to continue reading more of her books! I know I’ll love all her others because just reading this…? Yeah, easily a favorite author! :)
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Faking It by Cora Carmack: I love Cora’s writing! I think the one thing that drove me crazy while reading was Max’s past. I had an idea of what happened, but it wasn’t completely revealed until the last couple chapters. After that, I felt we didn’t get as much of Cade and Max as a couple… But that’s just me, I always want more. :P I loved their story, I feel like I’ve read a similar book in which the 2 characters pretend their dating.. If I have read a book like this before, I cannot remember it for the life of me. I am mad (as per usual) that I waited until now to read this. Same will go for the 3rd book in this series, I don’t have a copy yet so I’m sure it’ll be a few months until I have it and read it. But anyways, off topic.. Loved this book! I have no clue who book 3 follows, but I’m excited! I love that it’s very different from the 1st book- awkward main character and a student/teacher romance.. But these characters both have a very tragic past and this isn’t something (form what I remember) that happened in the first book. This one was definitely more emotional. Loved it though. :)
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆½
  • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling: emojis are the only thing that can express my feelings at the moment…. :( ugh…… :(
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆

What I’m Currently Reading:

Waiting for Wyatt Cover SM scoring wilder

As I write this post mid afternoon, I’m halfway through Waiting For Wyatt. I’ll be finishing Scoring Wilder this week – it’s my audiobook I chose last week. I’m absolutely loving both books!

What I Plan To Read Next:

harry potter and the deathly hallows

I have another book I’m going to be reading, but can’t really announce just yet. ;) I do plan to read more than this, but haven’t quite picked out my TBR yet. So you’ll see what I finish next week! :D

My Reading Stack (#22)

reading stackI completely forgot to post what I read last week, so this is going to be a big wrap-up for the 2 weeks. My semester ended last week so I’ve been reading like crazy.

What I Finished:

frenched consolation unexpected fate coach conviction hard to love kaleidoscope hearts torn hearts harry potter and the order of the pheonix just a kiss

  • Frenched by Melanie Harlow: I’m sooo glad I was finally able to start this with Monica. We have been talking for months about reading this together and we finally did. I knew I was probably going to love it and I did. But, who wouldn’t love a book set in Paris?! I absolutely loved Lucas and Mia, loved their story, loved everything. I need their novella and I’m frustrated I don’t already own it. Can’t wait to read more of Melanie’s books, I’m hooked!
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Consolation by Corinne Michaels: Seriously… That ending. Why?! Corinne, why?! I don’t own the second book and it’s only been 15 minutes and I’m going crazy! This is probably one of the biggest cliffhangers I’ve come across this year. Definitely wasn’t expecting that ending! Wow! But anyway, I loved this book. I couldn’t help but immediately fall for Liam. All alpha-male, sweet, caring Liam. Plus, not to mention how good he is with Arrabelle. ;) As I’ve said before if you’ve read previous reviews, guys who are like this immediately win my heart. :) Loved all the side characters, loved everything! I’m DYING to read the 2nd book, it is literally driving me crazy…
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆½
  • Unexpected Fate by Harper Sloan: I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! This was my first book by Harper and I absolutely am in love with her writing! I have a very strong feeling this follows after the Corps Security series, if not, then it would be a huge coincidence! I loved everything about this book, the characters, the romance, the suspense, the drama, every single word. I’m really looking forward to reading Bleeding Love as well as all of Harper’s other books!!
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Coach by Alexa Riley: very quick, smut read. I had noticed Mechanic was a second book in a series and didn’t realize this book was the “first” book to the series, so I figured, why the heck not. :) As I said, it’s a smut read… A virgin, 18 year old senior in high school who catches the eye of her dad’s best friend who is a coach. I’m really excited to pick up Mechanic as well as Alexa’s others!
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆
  • Conviction by Corinne Michaels: wow, just wow.. So many emotions were experienced while reading this duology. My heart broke countless times, a bawled my eyes out twice towards the last 75% percent, I laughed out loud who knows how many times, wanted to punch characters for being sooo stupid a lot. I really connected and fell for these characters hard. I can easily say Consolation and Conviction are an all time favorite for me. I’m kicking myself for not having read Corinne’s first duology, Belonging. I will however try and read that as well this month. I have fallen for these characters so much and I’m glad I don’t have to say goodbye just yet. Words cannot begin to describe how much I loved our Dreamboat, AKA Liam. He definitely makes it in the top of my book boyfriends. How he was with Arabelle made my heart swell… I’m not kidding you when I’ve said this in other reviews – guys who have that fatherly personality almost immediately win me over. :) Can’t wait to read more of Corinne’s books, I’m hooked!
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Hard to Love by Kendall Ryan: I liked this book, nothing stood out as fantastic to me. I listened to this as an audiobook so I will admit, the lady who did Alexa’s voice was not fitting. I felt in the beginning she was portraying characters with a Scottish accent- something I don’t think is in Alexa’s background… At least not something that was mentioned. Her voice just didn’t do it for me, I couldn’t picture Alexa with the voice.
    I felt at times I wanted to strangle both Cade and Alexa. Especially Alexa towards the end… Overall, I very much enjoyed this book and I’m very excited to read more of Kendall’s books. Especially Screwed.

    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆½
  • Kaleidoscope Hearts by Claire Contreras: I loved this book! I do wish that we got more of their life as a couple though. I loved how dedicated Oliver was to school and what he wanted to do in the medical field- won me over. I loved Elle’s character to pieces- probably one of my favorites so far! Claire’s writing is absolutely beautiful! I think I tabbed at least 20 different quotes!
    My favorite scene, that I’m sure I’ll remember for a long time was the photoshoot! HOLY COW!
    I’m very excited for Paper Hearts! I loved Mia!!

    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆½
  • Torn Hearts by Claire Contreras: Wow, 45 pages and we get all that?! WOAH. I’m VERY intrigued to say the least for their full story and what happens next. Getting to exactly see what caused them to break up was a shocker to say the least. I knew it was probably something big, but what did happen took me by surprise! Can’t wait!!!! :D
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling: I FINISHED THE BIGGEST BOOK! ALL 800 PAGES!!!!! :D 5 down, 2 more left! Loved the book of course. ;)
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Just a Kiss by Kate Kisset: Cute, light-hearted romance. A breath of fresh air from alot of NA I’ve read lately. I was born in Cali, but never got to see Napa/Sonoma area, and getting to see it through this story made me feel like I was there. Kate’s writing is fantastic! Loved this book! I’ll have more concrete thoughts on my full review to come.
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆

What I’m Currently Reading:

scoring wilder sweet home

Scoring Wilder is my audiobook of choice and I’m LOVING it so far! :D I’ve made it only through the prologue in Sweet Home, but wow, that was sad. :(

What I Plan to Read:

harry potter and the half blood prince

This is the only book I have planned to read. I do have A LOT of books I want to read this month, but I’m kind of going with the flow and picking up what I want to read. So you’ll see what else I pick up next week when I show what I finished. :)

Cover Reveal: Bait and Switch by Kendall Ryan

NYT Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan brings you a brand new exciting series, Alphas Undone. Each book is a standalone. We are very excited to announce the first book Bait & Switch, which will release on February 9th, 2016.

 

 

 

Bait & Switch
Alphas Undone Book 1

Love is a trap, a trick only other

people fall for. Former Navy SEAL Nolan has no such illusions. The only things

real in his life are his beloved bulldog and the two women who regularly share

his bed. One is light—soft, innocent, and tender touches. The other is dark—and

gives him all of the wicked things he craves behind closed doors. It’s not

cheating when each is aware of the other. But when he begins to feel much more

than he ever bargained for, the order of his carefully crafted world is shaken,

and he stands to lose everything.

Nolan thinks we met by chance. We

didn’t. I sought him out, seduced him, and in return got the sanctuary I needed

to survive. But now, impossibly, I’ve fallen in love with him. I don’t care

that he has another lover, because when he finds out who I am, it’s going to

ruin any chance I ever had with him anyway. She’s the least of my worries.

Bait & Switch is Book 1 in a new contemporary

romance series by Kendall Ryan.

EXCERPT

“So, how does all this work? Do you mind if I pry a little?” Her cheeks heated slightly, knowing all the questions spinning in her mind. It was one thing to hear about it over drinks the other night, it was quite another to see it with her own eyes.

“Pry away,” he chuckled softly, his hand slowly stroking up and down against her spine.

Awareness zinged through her. It had been a long time since she’d felt a man’s touch. Six months to be exact.

“How did she end up living here with you?”

“I knew her through a mutual acquaintance, and after breaking up with her ex, she needed somewhere to live. I offered my guest room up. Rent free. No strings. And she said yes.”

“That was awfully nice of you.” She blinked at him in wide-eyed astonishment. It wasn’t something many people would do.

“Trust me, I’m very far from being a white knight.” His voice dropped lower, and his hand came to rest at her lower back again. “Our relationship sort of evolved from there.”

He didn’t continue, leaving Lacey to guess if it was some type of BDSM interest that they shared.

“What else is going on inside that pretty head of yours?” he asked.

“H-how did you come to be this way?” She cringed when she realized how it sounded. As though he was damaged goods. Then again, maybe he was. Nolan didn’t even raise an eyebrow to her question.

“After a demanding career as a SEAL …” He let out a deep sigh, gazing down at the courtyard. “My goals are much simpler now – to enjoy life one day at a time and take pleasure where I find it.”

She simply nodded. He didn’t elaborate, but he didn’t need to. Growing up in a family of men who served, she knew he had seen too much, done too much, probably experienced losing teammates he fought beside. She knew it could mess a man up. At the very least, it changed them. And in Nolan’s case, it made him harder and closed him off to the hearts and flowers kind of love she hoped to find someday. He was surviving, in his own way.

“I need to know what you taste like,” Nolan murmured.

She blinked up at him, her eyes still searching his. There was so much she was unsure about, but the electricity buzzing between them wasn’t one of them.

He leaned forward, moving slowly, and brought his lips to hers. Hesitating for just a moment, as if to give her a chance to decide, Nolan’s warm breath ghosted over her mouth. Lifting up onto her tip toes, Lacey touched her lips to his. With one hand stroking her jaw, his other came to settle against her hip, his thumb running along the bare skin at the waistband of her jeans. Nolan pulled her body close, until she felt the hard ridge of him against her belly. He felt massive. Her lips parted in a silent gasp and he stroked his tongue against hers.

His mouth seemed made to fit over hers. And the skillful way he moved his tongue provoked thoughts of what other ways he could use that tongue. While her panties grew wet, and her breathing turned ragged, they kissed deeply for several minutes.

Her hands wandered, running over his firm biceps, and down the front of his shirt where rounded pecs waited invitingly under his shirt.

Sex rolled off of him in waves. No, not just sex. Fucking. Lacey was sure that being intimate with Nolan would be unlike any other experience she’d had. And that excited the hell out of her.

“God damn, woman,” he murmured breaking away from her lips.

Lacey couldn’t disagree. Everything about that kiss felt right. Backgrounds ceased to matter. Messy entanglements forgotten. When she was kissing Nolan, nothing mattered except getting even closer. More, her body begged.

“Just keep an open mind,” he said, tucking a stray lock of hair behind her ear.
