About THE FARTHEST EDGE (Erotic Romance Releasing June 6, 2017):

Step into the Honey Club, where every sensual boundary will be tested in search of the ultimate pleasure…

Branch doesn’t exist. Living off the grid, he’s looking for a way to forget his past and the guilt that plagues him. But no woman has ever been able to bring him to the edge he craves.

After a traumatic experience of her own, Evangeline stepped away from the decadent world of the Honey Club. But when she gets Branch’s offer—to play without boundaries or commitments—it’s too tempting for her to refuse.

As their passion ignites, Evangeline and Branch push each other to their farthest limit, fulfilling their darkest desires while falling harder and deeper than they ever imagined.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

Ok lovers- I know Kristen Ashley’s newest series is not for everyone but let me just say- I LOVE IT.

I don’t know- there is something so sinfully delicious about this BDSM world they live in.

This was the story of Evangeline and Branch. One thing I really liked about this story is that in book 1 (The Deep End) you learn a lot about the club, how it all works and some of the key players. You also meet both Evangeline and Branch but, especially where Evangeline is concerned, you don’t know much about why she is the way she is.

We know that Evangeline had some trauma that took her away from the club. What we learn is what exactly that trauma is and how Branch is wrapped up in Honey and all of it’s craziness. Evangeline needs to heal- needs to reclaim a part of her that her terrible ex-sub took from her. Branch needs healing on a whole different level and he doesn’t want it. But Evangeline breaks through his tough wall, piece by piece. And it is KA perfection.

Lovers- I do suggest you read both books but if you tried book 1 and weren’t into it, I highly suggest you give book 2 a whirl. In many ways- this book read more like a typical KA book. Branch may be a sub in bed but he is 100% kick ass, KA alpha male and I LOVED him.

Evangeline could easily be a rock chick. She’s strong and smart and witty and funny. She’s everything we love about the women Kristen Ashley creates. While we are still in the BDSM Honey club world- The Farthest Edge has a familiarity that we all crave in books by KA.

I absolutely fell in love with these characters, with the supporting cast and with the story in general and I think you will too.

 

EXCERPT

She sighed and began, “Aryas—“

“Get you don’t want to and won’t push it. Hope you do. Hope you get over it. Hope you come back to us and to you in all the ways you should do that. You can’t find that in you…” He shrugged but didn’t stop coming at her. “That’s the way it is. I can’t push that. You gotta find that in you. But connecting with you. Seeing where you’re at. Getting you to come back to the family. Taking your pulse is only part of why I asked you here. I also got another reason.”

Evangeline took another sip of her coffee before she asked, “And what’s that?”

“Got a sub for you.”

She blinked and her stomach pitched.

“Sorry?” she queried.

“Perfect for you. No strings. No boundaries. This guy is not looking to connect. He’s not looking for a relationship. Hell, sheer number of Dommes he goes through, you might only get one crack at him before he vanishes from your life. But at least you’ll get off the way you like it that one time. And if you can keep him around awhile, you might have some fun, break yourself back in, give yourself what you need, without any baggage.”

Um.

Whoa.

That all sounded way too good to be true.

But still.

“I’m not…I don’t think…” She swallowed. “I’m not ready for that, and to be honest, Ary, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back there.”

“Fool thing to think, more fool thing to do,” Aryas returned instantly. “Especially when you got a chance to have a go with this guy. You got a shot at a guy like this guy, you should take it. And I mean that for you. Only for you. For where you’re at. For what I suspect you need about now. He doesn’t want to hold hands. He doesn’t want to share a drink in the hunting ground. He doesn’t want you to give him your number or stake your claim on him in the club or anywhere. He wants you to get him off and he’s open to anything you wanna do to pull that off.”

He’s open to anything you wanna do to pull that off. 

She fought squirming in her seat and it made her angry.

This was not a part of her life anymore.

 

And don’t miss the first standalone title in the Honey Series,

THE DEEP END!

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorizeand she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

MISTER MONEYBAGS by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward: Book Tour & Review

MMB banner 1

 

IMG_5273I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

Lovers. There is a mystery in this world and it is this: The mystery of how Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward continue to write the most amazing books together that are always fun, interesting and creative.

But they do this every. single. time.

And I am 100% here for it.

I started to read MISTER MONEYBAGS without really knowing what it was about and so I went back and read the synopsis. At about 50% I was like- how is it that this story is still so interesting but the thing that I thought was the conflict is basically not a thing anymore?? And what could possibly happen next? Then my mind was blown as ViPen came up with twists and turns I could have never seen coming.

I think to figure out a way to make a book new and exciting and different in an industry where there is just so much of everything is a testament to the brilliance of ViPen. Pretty much anytime these two decide to write something I am going to run, not walk, to read it because I can be sure it will be amazing.

Anyways- for this book- Bianca and Dex are great. There is something about Bianca that makes her seem so real and relateable. She’s someone you can root for. Dex is sex on a stick. His name rhymes with sex- what more do you want? There is actually not a ton of sex in this book. There is a lot of wanting, a lot of foreplay and tension, steamy kisses that make you jealous of fictional characters- but the deed doesn’t come for a while. And still to me- this is probably going to be a top read of 2017 because I could not put it down for anything. That’s all i need in a book- to just never want to stop reading it and I definitely got that in MISTER MONEYBAGS.

Each of their joint books are standalone so if you have been living under a rock- simply go and pick up any books and start reading immediately.

You’ll thank me soon enough.

About Hot for the Fireman:

Ex-Army Ranger Erik Grady lives for the job. So when his chief at the Boston Fire Department offers him two choices—mandated therapy for supposed PTSD or a permanent desk job at the station, he reluctantly agrees to see a shrink. Only this doctor is unlike anything he expected. Female and curved in all the right places? Check. Hotter than a four-alarm fire? Check. The kind of woman that can heat his blood in and out of bed? Check, check. And oh, yeah, he just happens to have first hand experience…

Of all the men to walk into psychologist Olivia Jones’ office, why did it have to be him? Her one-night stand isn’t playing by the rules of just. One. Night. She’s had her heart broken in the past, and no way is she going there again. And now he’s blackmailing her into three dates? Well, if that’s what it takes to make him see a different therapist, fine. She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She’s a professional, damn it. She’ll date Mr. I’m Too Sexy For My Bunker Pants. But it won’t end in the fun he expects.

It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…

PEPPER’S REVIEW

Whenever I think of hot fireman, I envision this magical creature:

and then I would like to think that this man’s hot therapist would look something like this:

Because, let’s be honest, in my mind this would stand for some really hot love. And this book has some steam like no other – GMax you got me on fire girl!!

However, even though we all love the steamy scenes, this book has so much more.

1st, Olivia is my kind of girl. She’s a specialized therapist in PTSD (which is on my short list of most wanted careers, btw) and she’s tough, but also loving. She doesn’t date and finds herself underneath a sexy AF man for just one night. Unfortunately (for her, not us obvs) her one night stand with Erik “Wolf” Grady turns into A LOT more!

Cut to the Wolf. OMG. You guys. This man has the absolute dirtiest mouth on him. I could NOT get enough. He’s an alpha who thinks he’s broken due to his PTSD from combat in war. After his hit-it-and- quit-it with Olivia, she actually ends up being the therapist that he is ordered to see for his PTSD. And he’s determined to make her more than 1 night. Again:

So a relationship of sorts ensues. The banter between the two of these sexy mofos was brilliant. It made their sexy time that much more tantalizing. I loved everything about both of these characters and together they were a powerhouse.

The supporting cast was

We had tons of dudes from the fire station – more books in the series I presume…and again:

And Olivia’s peeps were so much fun as well.

Seriously lovers, this book was so good. GMax delivered the sensitive subject of PTSD in such a respectful manner. The scenes surrounding this topic were intense and felt true to what one might experience IRL. I love how she was able to have lighthearted banter between the two lovers, intense love scenes, and the seriousness of a mental health condition all wrapped into one amazing story. This is my fav by GMax for sure! Get it now ladies and gents!
