TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

Review by Victoria

Taken by Love is the fifteenth book in the Love in Bloom series and the seventh book in The Braden’s series.   While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.

 Daisy Honey left Trusty Colorado to go to college and never planned on returning other than seeing her parents. However, her father got hurt so Daisy returned for what she hoped was temporary to help take care of her father’s farm. Daisy is a gorgeous woman and was gorgeous as a child as well. She fielded rumors left and right, and the local girls always taking cheap shots at her. Daisy has no true reason to stay well that is until she meets Luke Branden.

 Luke Branden is a hot and sexy man. Luke is a local horse breeder and one of the best.  He is the youngest out of all his brothers as well. While Luke wants to settle down he has not found anyone worth his time, well that is until Daisy walked into his life. Daisy has Luke looking back at his childhood and wanting answers to question that have always plagued him. Therefore, Luke goes looking for the answers he seeks.

The chemistry between Luke and Daisy is blistering. It was apparent from the first sight that they had a connection. I enjoyed seeing how both Luke and Daisy tried to fight the attraction and failed. I enjoyed seeing that Luke was not going to force Daisy to stay but let her make the decision that is best for her.

I found this book well written. The main and secondary characters are interesting and engaging.   I loved seeing past characters of the other books make an appearance. Overall, this was a wonderful book. Each book I read by Ms. Foster gets better and better. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.


Review by CeeCee


Foster has the uncanny ability to continuously deliver stories that enchant, entertain, and enthuse!

Daisy and Luke are lovable, as well as relatable. She’s hell bent on the big city, while his roots are firmly planted in Trusty. As these wonderful characters branch out from their comfort zones and get to know each other again, a beautiful story unfolds.

You just can’t go wrong with these novels! They’re easy to read in one sitting, the romance is perfectly timed, and there’s always an update on past characters. If you’re looking for a feel good story with a little drama, and some very sexy men, this is definitely your book! Can’t wait for the next!

What Readers are saying:

There’s a great plot line, an interesting twist to the story, and I think although it’s not a cliffhanger you’ll be left wanting more…Kinky Book Klub



A city girl, born and bred, I place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my very own knight in slightly tarnished armor. When I’m not busy living my own happily ever after, I’m writing about someone else’s.



Enjoy the following excerpt from Goddess of the Hunt:

“Is it done? Do you and the others in the house bring in sex partners from time to time?” She straightened and stared at him.

“Yes.” He hissed the answer.

“I’m travelling; you and I meet at a pub and go to your place to hook up. It’s simple and happens all the time. Believable, even.” She thought of Michel and her lips tilted at the corners. Then, casting her eyes over Eoin, she deliberately arched a brow and tucked her tongue in her cheek. “Well, for most people, anyway.”

His lips thinned and the muscles in his cheek ticked as he worked to control the flare of temper. It delighted her. “Fine, we’ll do it your way.” Eoin pushed himself from the chair he’d been perched on and nearly charged for the door. “I’ll be here at seven-thirty tomorrow morning, be ready.”

Paige grabbed his arm as he passed her. “What are you so worked up about? If it goes wrong, you can just leave me hanging and you know it. This costs you nothing, Paddy-boy; it’s my ass on the line.”

He grabbed her shirt and pushed her against the closet door. She didn’t fight it and he had his mouth on her in seconds. His tongue delved and demanded she respond; she arched up into the kiss. Delight, desire, and anger thrummed through her as she both succumbed and made demands of her own. His hands molded to her hips and pinned her between the hard planes of his body and the wall behind her. Then he abruptly pulled away. They stood inches apart; the air crackled around them. Their gazes locked. He opened his mouth, then shook his head and left without a word.


 Tie score.









“It’s not you.”

There are only so many times a girl can hear those words before she believes that it is, in fact, very much her. Unexpectedly jilted by her locally famous boyfriend and haunted by a boss who makes Attila the Hun look like a lap dog, Bellamy Blake does what any self-respecting girl in her shoes would do. She rounds up her two best girlfriends and makes plans to get the hell out of Dodge.

But Bellamy’s escape plan takes a nose dive on the side of rural route 164 when her transmission self-destructs, leaving her in the middle of a cell phone dead zone with nothing but her wits. Oh, and Shane Griffin, the hottest mechanic who’s ever checked under her hood.

Yet this small-town man isn’t all he seems. Can Shane and Bellamy prove that sometimes the most unlikely ingredients make the most deliciously sexy mix?


Turn Up the Heat is the first book in the Pine Mountain series by Kimberly Kincaid.  Bellamy and her famous boyfriend break up and her boss is a nightmare so she goes on a weekend getaway with two of her friends.  However, Bellamy’s luck goes from bad to worse and her transmission breaks on the way.  So that leaves Bellamy is the middle of nowhere with the hottest mechanic on the planet.  Bellamy is a nice woman who has no idea what she is going to do with her life but her current job is not for her. 

Shane Griffin is a hot and sexy man who has not faced his past.  He works as a mechanic and is very good at his job as well as honest.  Shane has issues in his past that he does not want to talk about as well.  Shane tries to keep his past the past and not discuss it unless he is forced to.  It’s apparent that Shane is not looking for a relationship or even a one night stand. 

The chemistry between Shane and Bellamy is scorching but I found any relationship between them a bit unrealistic because neither person wanted one or even work for one. The sex scenes were steamy.  They made a great match in the bedroom. 

The story was very well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  Overall, this was a great book.  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

BlurbEveryone tells him he needs to move on, but how can a man function without his heart?

Ten-year-old Caleb Tanner wants nothing to do with Sylvie Cranston, the annoying weird girl who moves next door to him and gets him in trouble for swearing. But at twelve, they become friends when he teaches her how to hook a fishing line and she shows him the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, he falls in love with her.
At sixteen, she dies.

Or so he’s told. But Cal never believes it. Sylvie has become part of his soul. He knows her like the steady beating of his own heart. He’d know if she was dead. Cal looks for her, prays for her and finally he just waits for her.

Nine years later, she walks into the community college English class Cal is teaching. Only this girl claims her name is Sophie Becker and she doesn’t know him. Cal knows better. He’s determined to get the girl he loves back—and protect her from the danger that took her away all those years ago.


Caleb is a teacher at the local community college working his way up to becoming a professor.  He has hunted for the woman who everyone told him was dead.  Caleb does not believe it because his heart says she is still alive.  It seems he tried to have relationships but no one has ever been able to measure up to Sylvie. 

Sylvie was taken from Caleb at the age of sixteen and was still in love with him years later to the point of following him from afar.  Finally, fears later she takes on of Calab’s classes just to see him then everything comes to a head as he see her. 

The chemistry between Caleb and Sylvie is blistering.  They have a hard time staying away from each other.  It shows how much they care about each other.  The sex scenes were scorching.  The ending is what blew me away.  I did not see it coming at all. 

I liked this book a lot but what I found confusing was for the first third of the book (less once you’re past that point) or so it went back and forth between the past and the present.  That is one of my biggest pet peeves because I find very distracting.  The main and secondary characters were fascinating and genuine. I loved that this book was told from Caleb’s point of view.  Overall, I adored this book and wish I can find man who loves me just like Caleb loves Sylvie. 


BlurbIt’s the interview like no other.
It’s the interview of a lifetime.
It’s THE Interview with a Master.
When Jonah Noble reveals details of his life within the world of BDSM, the tale he tells is intensely erotic, profoundly sensual, and brutally honest.
This is His world. His way.
There is only one question the man will not answer…

(BDSM erotica from a man’s POV, written by a man. Contains some explicit language)


Interview with a Master is the first book in the Interview with a Master series by Jason Luke.  This author does a wonderful job of drawing you into the story in a realistic way and not letting you go until the very end.  I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.  I loved this book a lot.  It was not what I expected the story to be and it kind of reminded me of Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice.  

Jason Noble is a Master and he is set on telling his story his way.  Jason comes across as open, and forthcoming about his past and brutally honest about his past in many ways. However, I did wonder if he picked a journalist not in the lifestyle because he was hiding something and he did not think she would pick it up or she would be too focused on the sex scenes and miss something he did not want to call attention too. 

This book is very well written with interesting main and secondary characters.  I read this book in one sitting.  I was sucked into this story.  I was struck by how realistic this story comes across.  While the ending is unexpected, it does come as realistic.  I enjoyed reading this story from a male perspective.  It had a much different tone than if it was told from the interviewer’s perspective.   Overall, this was a wonderful book and I literally cannot wait to read the next book in the series. 




BlurbCIA Agent Aaron “Angel” Collins doesn’t take many things on faith. He trusts his gut, his eyes, and his husband, Jordan, an Army Captain. When his commanding officers deliver news of Jordan’s death, Aaron needs proof. The facts don’t add up, and Aaron must decide if he can trust Major General Troy Hart to assist in his quest to discover the truth.
Captain Jordan Collins is battered and disheartened in an Afghanistan prison, but definitely not dead, though he learns his own government believes he is. His only mission now is to stay alive and make it home to Angel, if he can find an ally among the enemy. But someone in the US government will stop at nothing to make sure he never leaves that prison, And Jordan must reevaluate the lines between friend and foe if he is ever to return to his Angel.


Aaron Collins is a CIA agent who has worked in the government long enough that he does not take much on faith. Aaron has a nickname that only the love of his life calls him, Angel.  Therefore, when the Army comes to him reporting the death of his husband Jordan, Aaron wants proof, like a body.  Therefore, the CIA agent does what he does best and looks in it to find an answer.

Jordan Collins is captain in the Army.  He has one last mission then he is out of the Army and looking to spend more time with his husband, Angel.  What happens is he get taken prisoner and with his county not looking for him because they all think he is dead makes Jordan realize that he has to save himself if he wants to go home to Angel.

Angel’s Truth is the first book in the Angel series by Liz Borino.  I found this book well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and engaging.  My only issue with this book is it was not long enough and not as flushed out as I would have liked.  However, I enjoyed reading this story and I wanted to know what happens next.  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. 


A wonderful love story involving a true test of faith that will melt your heart!

I loved the determination and strength Aaron exhibited, as everyone around him lost hope.  What seems to be an act of lunacy to others is simply an act of true love.  Of course, Jordan’s struggles amplified my compassion for such an amazingly loyal and courageous couple.   Jordan’s need to get back to his husband alive was inspiring.  The willpower to survive his horrible circumstances was matched by the bravery of a young woman risking her life to save him.   Unfortunately, with powerful enemies running the show from both sides, the outcome for all involved may not be a happy one.







Please note: This is the sequel to Angel’s Hero and these books must be read in order. 

“Freeze or I’ll shoot!” Aaron yelled and aimed the gun at Jordan’s chest.
“Angel, no, please.” Hacking fluid-filled coughs broke up Jordan’s words.
“Jordan?” Aaron whispered his name as recognition painted a mural of memories of their life together on his face.
“Yes.” He coughed red into his dirty hand. “Please help.”

So begins Angel’s Truth, the sequel to Angel’s Hero. Army Captain Jordan Collins arrives home, only to find the man responsible for his imprisonment, torture, and near-execution with his husband. Had his Angel moved on without him?

Aaron “Angel” Collins has driven his family and friends away in his quest to learn the truth of Jordan’s fate, leaving only Major General Troy Hart willing to help him. When Jordan miraculously returns, with a spirit more broken than his body, Aaron realizes Hart was really a liar with an agenda of his own. Aaron is unable to take time to heal his own emotional wounds, because he and Jordan learn Hart’s betrayal is even greater than they originally believed, threatening the entire nation. Now the reunited couple must race against time to keep a promise to Jordan’s savior and prevent Hart from bringing terrorism once again to American soil.


Aaron “Angel” Collins has driven his family and friends away because he has not accepted the death of his husband.  The only person that has stuck by him is Major General Troy Hart.  Troy is attracted to Aaron and seems to use everything he can to get Aaron to fall for him.  

Aaron is surprised by the re-appearance of Jordan.  He is also taken back by how broken inside and out Jordan is especially with the Court Marshall upcoming as to how he arrived home.  Aaron figures out who is to blame and set off to protect not just himself but Jordan as well. 

Angel’s Truth is the second book in the Angel series by Liz Borino.  This book is part of a series and is best read in order to best understand the plot and characters.  I found this book well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  Overall, I loved this story.  I wonder if there will be another story about these characters in the future.  I hope so. 


This quick read was a satisfying end to an intriguing military thriller. 

Although he’s home, Jordan’s nightmares are still haunting him.  As the PTSD and physical recovery takes its toll on him and Aaron, their betrayer continues his treacherous ways. They race against time, while looking over their shoulder, to stop a killer before he strikes again.

Once again, this couple displays an amazing amount of love and support for one another.  I learned a few things during the erotic scenes that I was completely unaware of, and Aaron’s “sassy” side came out a little more in this installment.  The story line wraps up both novels in a tragic, but wonderful manner.



BlurbTwo men. One woman. It could ruin a friendship, or bring a satisfying twist to their lives. Artist, Jason Morgan, is used to making magic on the canvas. Now he hopes to do it in the bedroom.
After a failed gallery showing, Jason decides the best way to cure his creative block is to act on his own personal fantasy, and enter into a sexual relationship with his two best friends.
From the time they were in elementary school, Russell Sinclair has been a willing participant in Jason’s adventures, but this one goes to a new level. He’s intrigued by the idea of sharing one woman, but is challenged by how to fit this three-sided relationship into his traditional life.
Lauren Redmond is no stranger to fantasy. As the aesthetic sales rep to the top Beverly Hills dermatologists, she is responsible for the majority of puffed lips and filled wrinkles in the greater Los Angeles area. She detours from her steady, secure path when she is offered the opportunity to live the dream with the two men who have occupied her heart since college. The fantasy fast becomes a powerful reality, and Lauren must decide if she is willing to give up everything she has worked for to have a bit of temporary decadence.
Trifecta explores the boundaries of love, relationships and convention.


Jason Morgan is an artist that usually making magic on canvas and trying to be discovered and make the big time.  What he wants more than anything is his two best friend all in one relationship together.  Maybe it’s the artiest in Jason but he sees the world in more than black and white.  I don’t think it would have occurred to either of the others to have a ménage relationship. 

Russell Sinclair is Jason’s best friend since elementary school.  He is a computer Architect.  He is always in control and the opposite of Jason.  He thinks things through before acting.  Russell comes across as the guy every girl dreams about. 

Lauren Redmond is an aesthetic sales rep to Beverly Hills dermatologist.  She is on her way to landing a Doctor for a husband.  However to do that she needs to put Jason and Russell away and that is a lot harder than she seems to think is it.  She also wants both of them as well. 

The chemistry between Jason, Russell, and Lauren is blistering.  The sex scenes were scorching hot.  In the bedroom, they have it all figured out.  It seems once they leave the bedroom the three of them forget that they are friends and stop communicating.  It’s almost like the other person should just know what the issues are.   

I found this story to be well written and exciting.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  My only issue with the book was it was a bit long winded and it was hard to see that the three were friends when they did not talk to each other much.  I did like seeing the three of them try to make the relationship work and the issues and problems that arise when one has an unconventional relationship in a conventional world.  Overall, this was a good book.

Review1This was a fun book that took a topic that is not every day conversation and pushed it out into the real world.  The characters are well written and I have to say the sex is amazing between the three of them.  When you have been friends as long as they have it is hard to take that next step.  Even more so when there are three of them involved.  Jason is a very selfish person but the creative nut in me thinks that is just what is personality makes him out to be. 

I can see how hard it was for Russell to step out of the very conservative shell he has lived in his whole life.  I did find it strange that after all the years they have been together, they still struggled for basic communication with each other.  Did Russell and Lauren really need Jason there to tell them if they could be together or not? 

At the end of the day this is a good book that I would recommend to anyone that likes a romance that breaks the mold.


BlurbBook Two
Murder, jealousy and treasure…

When Cammie Adams, determined novice PI, gets an urgent call from her ex, she is compelled to take his case. Miles, a luxury hotel owner and an upstanding citizen of the Upton Hills Community, finds one of the maids dead in an empty suite and turns to Cammie for help to keep his beloved hotel from being tarnished. With her partner and complicated boyfriend, Simon, she takes on a case that might just be their last. Her ex’s hotel is an eighty-year-old building that has secrets of its own. Will Miles win Cammie back? Will Simon stay by her side when the unthinkable happens? Can they catch the murderer to save the hotel and her ex’s reputation or will the case take a turn that will leave them lost forever?


Something to Treasure is the second book in the More than Treasure series by Christy Newton.  This book is best read as part of the series and not as a standalone.  In this book, we get to know Cammie better than the first book.  Cammie seems to be adjusting to all the changes in her life as her father is back in her life as well as having a boyfriend.  We get to see what unsettles Cammie.

Simon is an ex-jewel thief turned PI.  He is still hot and sexy man.  Its apparent that while Simon is intelligent and is a good PI his first job above all else is to keep Cammie from getting hurt everything else comes across as second to that.  

The chemistry between Simon and Cammie is intense.  The sex scenes were hot and steamy.  The sex scenes were not as detailed as some book are and I enjoyed that a lot.  What puzzled me was why Cammie and Simon were sleeping in separate bedrooms.  Is it a way to slow the relationship down and get to know the other person better?  On the other hand, is there another reason?

Just like the prior book, this book was just as well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  I read this book in one sitting because I could not put this book down.   I found the mystery immensely entertaining.  Ms. Newton kept me on my toes with all the twists and turns this story took.   I had no idea what was going to pop up next.  Overall, this was a magnificent book and I will be picking up the next book in the series shortly. 




After the bloody murder of her brother, Rei finds herself on the run from the coven that killed him. A powerful Earth witch, Rei searches for a natural well of magic to avenge her brother’s death, even if costs her life. However, standing between her and her goal is an alluring wolf.Aidan never took the time or interest to look for his mate, but when the young witch shows up on pack hunting grounds his solitary life is turned upside down. Now, he must find a way to protect his pack and the woman that fate has handed him.

Review by TommeRei is an witch and she is running from a coven of blood witches, but not just any coven, the coven that murdered her brother in front of her eyes so they could steal his power. Now they want her power and they will kill anyone that gets in their way.  Rei needs some more power to take on the coven and is drawn to a particularly powerful piece of land in Montana.  While looking for the source of the power she runs into a strange wolf, and finds herself thrown into Aidan’s world.

Aidan is just your average werewolf, protecting his packs land and getting his nephew ready for his first full moon. You know the normal stuff.  Until he finds a young witch camping all alone on the packs land…and then all of a sudden there is nothing normal about his life.

I was really excited to read this book. I love witches and I love werewolves. So a book about witches AND werewolves sounded perfect. I was not disappointed.  I read this book in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down.  The story flows effortlessly and has you anticipating what is on the next page.  The author has written just the right mix of action, suspense and romance to make the book interesting for a wide range of readers.  The main and secondary characters are wonderfully written and really draw you into their world. I haven’t read anything else by this author, but after reading this I definitely will! I would recommend this read to …well everyone.


Rei is on the run from a coven that wants to take her powers and kill her.  They already killed her brother, but his death enabled her to get away from them.  Rei is a powerful earth witch who has steadily moved closer to a werewolf pack.  Rei is a strong woman who tries to do the right thing and not get anyone hurt along the way. 

Aidan is one of alphas of the local werewolf pack.  He has not had time to look for a mate with trying to get the mate of his late brother to realize that he is not her mate.  At first sight of Rei is recognized that she is his mate and that brings tons of additional trouble. 

The chemistry between Aidan and Rei is blazing.  Aidan does everything possible to balance protecting Rei and the pack with proving that Aidan is strong enough to fight this coven.  The sex scenes were scorching.

I found this book to be well written.  The main and secondary characters are interesting and realistic.  I hope that this becomes a series because I would love to see some of the secondary characters get their own books. Overall this was a great book that I enjoyed reading.  


BlurbTwenty-two year old, Cammie Adams knows one thing for sure – life isn’t fair. She’s still an emotional wreck from the tragic loss of her parents seven years ago. Right after she gets her PI license she is not only robbed, but abducted, only to find her life was all a lie. When she finds her mother’s diary, she discovers she was only a pawn in her mother’s dangerous game. Now she must get back what is rightfully hers from the man that murdered her mother.

Hot and mysterious, Simon Fisher has really only loved one thing – jewels. This ex-jewel thief, now bodyguard, doesn’t even know what hits him when he rescues Cammie as a favor to her father. Simon must protect her, but soon finds out where there’s trouble Cammie isn’t far behind. She will not only steal his prized jewel, but his heart.


Stolen Hearts is the first book in the More Than Treasure series by Christy Newton.  Cammie was lost after the death of her parents. Then she gets robbed and kidnapped.  I am amazed at how calm Cammie is about being robbed and kidnapped.  Also finding out her Dad was still alive I would have been pissed.  It makes me wonder if she had some inkling that she never wanted to acknowledge or face?

Simon Fisher is a jewel thief turned bodyguard.  Simon’s career choice seems a bit odd going from a thief to a bodyguard.  Cammie’s father hires him to protect her.  Simon is a hot and sexy man.  Both seem to fall for other almost immediately. 

The chemistry between Cammie and Simon is blistering hot.  The sex senses were scorching.  I loved that they were not a detailed as in some books.  I loved that Simon did not want to protect Cammie from his life but let her see what he does and how he does it. 

I found this book to be well written.  The main and secondary characters were realistic.  Overall, this was a great book.  I had a hard time putting it down.  I read this book in one sitting.  This book keeps you on your toes all the way through from the first page to the last.  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
