Delaney held up a light pink sweater to her chest. “This is hideous. You have to trash this thing.” She flung it behind her.
“Hey, I like that sweater.” I dashed after it and then gave it a once over and agreed with her. It was something my mom had bought for me and it had Betty Homemaker written all over it with pearl buttons and a jacquard trim. I shoved it in the return-home bag. “I think coming back to the dorm will be good for both of us. When Raven’s having a bad day, I can just come back here so he can have some time to himself. Time to process whatever he’s going through.”
And time to fight his demons.
“And you trust that he will be okay.” She threw one of my skirts over her head. “He won’t plunge off the edge and go back to where he was, will he?”
“I’ll check on him. It’s not like I won’t see him. And if needed you can take me to his apartment, right?”
“Yeah, of course.”
“Who’s apartment?” Raven stood in the doorway carrying my bags.
“Your apartment, silly.” I smiled at him, trying to displace any unnecessary fear or jealously. Although Raven hadn’t seemed liked the jealous type, I wanted to keep it that way. That was one less thing I didn’t have to worry about in our relationship.
“Hey, what’s this?” Delaney held up a pink and silver Victoria Secret’s gift card.
“Where did you get that?” I said taking it from her hand.
“It was buried in your clothes.” She pointed to the mound on my bed.
Raven looked over my shoulder as I opened the flap.
Have fun shopping with Raven. Love, Dad.
“Holy shit. Is he serious?” I looked at Raven and he smiled. Was my dad trying to make up for my mom going bat shit crazy and burning all the lingerie Raven had bought me?
“Damn!” Raven covered his mouth with his fist. “Three hundred bucks. We can buy you a lot of sexy stuff.” Raven cocked a brow. “When are we going?”
“Whenever you want.”  I eyed him with a hungry stare. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to get enough of him.
Of his taste.
Of his touch.
Of his scent.
I was permanently caught in The Raven’s trap. And I wondered if he was really done with setting out his bait and happy with the catch he’d caught. Time would only tell. I shook my head, trying to calm my ranging hormones.
“Is that it?” I asked, looking at the two bags by the door.
“What do you mean, is that it?”  He huffed, gripping his waist. “I brought up like five bags. And there’s still more at my apartment.”
“I’m sorry.” I walked past him and headed for the closet. “I didn’t ask my dad to bring me all of my clothes.”
“I know.” He grabbed my hand and spun me around. I slammed against his body and rested my hands against his broad chest. “If you’d just stay with me, then we wouldn’t have to hauling all of your stuff back and forth.”
His scent laced around me, making it difficult to stand my ground. “But I am going to stay with you.”
“Yeah, but not every night.” He pressed his lips to the sensitive part of my neck and my mind quickly forgot why I had talked myself in to coming back to the dorm. “I need a little bit of this every night.” He popped me on the butt and I squealed.
“Okay, I’m outta of here.” Delaney dropped the clothes in her hand.
“No. I need your advice.” I tried to wiggle out of Raven’s arms, but he only held me tighter. “I need you to help me pick out clothes that will make me look sexy.” I glanced up at Raven and he let out a low growl as he continued to nibble on my neck, not paying any attention to Delaney. I leaned to the side, trying to break free, even though I really didn’t want to. “Raven, stop.” I pleaded with a tone that said yes, more than it said no.
“Looks like you’re about to get undressed so I’ll help you later.” Delaney step aside and headed for the door.
“Thanks, Delaney.” Raven said as he kicked off his shoes and started to pull off his shirt. His stomach tensed and I caught a nice view of his elegantly chiseled abs.
“Shit, I almost forgot.” Delaney turned around before pulling the door shut. “Whoa! Can you wait until I get out? I don’t need a glimpse of the freak show.”
“Hurry.” Raven tossed his shirt on the chair. “I don’t have all day.”
Delaney’s eyes landed directly on Raven’s midsection for a full count of three before she finally tore them away and looked at me. “Do y’all want to grab a pizza with Luke and me later?”
Raven looked at me, waiting for a response. “I’m game if you are,” I said, feeling the hunger pains bubble up in my stomach.
His lips spread into a full smile. “Sure, but I’m game for something else first.” Raven encircled his arms around me and pressed his lips against my ear as his hands wondered up and down my backside.
“What time Delaney?” I grabbed his arms, trying to restrain him from feeling me up in front of my roommate. He stretched his neck, trying to kiss me. I laughed, unable to resist his tempting offer. After all, I was already in his trap and I was there to stay.
“Is an hour long enough?” Delaney appraised Raven from head to toe and then gave me a wide-eyed warning.
“No, but we’ll make it work.” He said, undressing me with his eyes.
I giggled as Raven picked me up and tossed me on the bed, landing on top of my clothes.
“I warned you, Lexi,” Delaney said, as she pulled the door shut.
“I know. But I can’t resist The Raven’s trap.”

Review: Love, In Spanish by Karina Halle

God, I love being reminded how much I adore these characters. I feel like Mateo and Vera are mine. I get them and I adore every sentiment that spills out of them. When Love, In English finished I was greedy and wanted more. I wasn’t ready to let them go. Greedy, yes I know, but sometimes Karina Halle grants wishes, and my Christmas present came early this year!

“You’ve made me realize that while sometimes love can’t conquer all, it can conquer you. You’ve conquered me, Vera, and I am forever yours.”

I was IN LOVE from page one and the feel fest didn’t stop until the end. This hot, hazy euphoria of knowing Mateo and Vera never stops even when you are experiencing the tough, tears running down my face, moments. Even when it hurts, it’s so real that you are just so captivated by the raw honesty and accuracy of it. I didn’t want to shy away from any of the hurt, because that IS a piece of their story.

“They do understand. But they don’t want to. To understand, they fear, is to become.”

Mateo’s POV gave me some insight to the insecurities that he might have felt toward their relationship. It was just what I needed after some of the scenes that made me want to pull out my hair from LIE. Honestly though, my favorite books have the characters making HUGE mistakes to earn their flawed and realistic feel.

“I think we will always pay for our sins, Vera, but our sins have been worth it. Haven’t they?”

Halle’s writing is flawless and poetic. Incredibly beautiful and stunning as her celestial metaphors that bring everything full circle. Nothing feels like a reach or insistent upon itself. The concepts, details, dialogue, and feelings all meld together spectacularly, creating a beautiful read full of emotion. BOTH Love, In English and Love, In Spanish are among my MUST READS of 2014.

“Our love is permanent and she is stardust in my hands”

Review: Having It All (Hellfire Riders MC #3) By: Kati Wilde

If you have not yet read the first two books in this series (Wanting It All and Taking It All) please stop and read them prior to reading this book and review because there are spoilers for the previous books  and you have been warned.

Having It All picks up right where Taking It All leaves off.  Saxon finally has Jenny as his but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t still trouble looking to not only harm Jenny, but destroy his club as well.  Saxon will protect Jenny with his life, he saved her once from those wanting to harm her and he will do it again without thinking.  She is his world, his heart, and his life.

Jenny doesn’t want Saxon to ever risk his freedom for her again, he lost five years of his life protecting her when she was attacked and now she knows that if he went away he would be taking her heart with him.  She has so much to deal with, especially since her dad is sick with cancer, she couldn’t handle losing Saxon.  It would break her.

I have loved the dynamic between Saxon and Jenny from the first book, well actually more like short novella but because this is such a well written serial I guess it could be called, that the shortness of the books aren’t an issue for me.  These are some sexy reads and they hook you in.  I am loving the premise behind the three authors who are writing their own series serials, loosely connected but yet all play a part in the bigger picture.  I honestly can’t wait for the next book even though Saxon and Jenny’s story may be finished, they will still play a large role in the rest of the future books.  

Review: Where I Belong By: J. Daniels

4 Stars!

When Mia returns to Alabama after leaving nine years prior, she planned to spend the summer with her best friend Tessa.  Mia’s mother has been sick with breast cancer and makes her take a vacation and have a little fun.  Mia doesn’t want to leave her mom but knows that she is in good hands.  What she doesn’t want to do is deal with Tessa’s asshole older brother, the older brother who was cruel to her growing up and made her cry because of his cruel words.  Too bad fate can be a cruel bitch, especially when you find out that the sexy as sin, hot guy you gave your virginity to, is in fact that same brother of your best friend, you know the one you hate? 

Ben doesn’t realize that the woman who he shared his bed with the night before, that same woman who has him enthralled after their night together, the one he needs more time with, is in fact his little sister’s best friend.  The same Mia that he used to make fun of when he was younger.  The same one, who, when she finds out the truth behind her hot sexy guy from the night before, wants nothing to do with him.  Ben isn’t that same asshole he was when he was younger, he has changed and when he sees how much he hurt Mia in the past, it really does cut him to the core.  He knows that what they had may have only been one night, but deep inside he knows Mia is the only woman for him.

Where I Belong is the first book in the Alabama Summer series, and it is a sweet, sexy and fun start to a new series.  It was almost like I could feel the sexual tension between Ben and Mia in my hands as I held onto my kindle.  I loved that Mia make Ben earn her trust, that Ben was willing to prove to her that he wasn’t that same immature asshole that she remembers, but someone who deserves her love.  Mia was trying to have some fun while at the same time wondering if she made the right choice to leave her mom behind with her aunt, even though her mom was the one to force it. 

I have had this book on my kindle for a while now, and I almost forgot about it until I remembered that it was the book that I needed to read prior to another book for a review next week. (And if you can’t figure it out that book is book two in this series and as soon as I am done typing this review  because I am already hooked on this series.)  I can’t believe I waited as long as I did to read this.  I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a sweet but very sexy read about a second chance to show that people do change and that sometimes that the girl (or boy) that you are picking on (or who picks on you) when you are younger, will be the perfect match for your heart when you get older.

Having just gotten out of one relationship, she’s hesitant to jump into another. But there’s something about the forty-five year old single father of three that calls to her.
