Book Review Loving Ruby by Roya Carmen

AMBERprintNEWCOVERfinal

A sinful boss secretary romance.
I’ve heard all the rumours: He killed his wife. He’s on house arrest. He’s a vampire. Yet still, when I get a job offer from the reclusive Mr. Hyde, I jump at the chance. Yes, I know I’m crazy.

I’m cautious at first, but then I discover a beautiful, quirky man. I also see a tortured soul who lives in darkness. I know I should run, yet I can’t tear myself away. I want to discover all his secrets. I desperately want to help him. And when he draws me deeper into his strange little world, I want to stay.

Author’s note: contains sexual scenes and some coarse language. This is the second book of the Riverstone Estate Series and can be enjoyed as a STANDALONE read. Get book one, Loving Amber now!

Loving Ruby is book two in The Riverstone Series, by author Roya Carmen. Having already enjoyed Loving Amber, I was anticipating this book’s release and I must say that Ms. Carmen didn’t disappoint.

Ruby appeared in book one, Loving Amber, and I loved getting to know Amber’s spunky younger sister and couldn’t wait for her to get her own story. In the second installment of The Riverstone Series, readers get to know not only Ruby–a fun, fearless female–but we’re also introduced to a new alpha-beta hero. The reclusive, swoony, brooding Mr. Hyde knows when to be firm and dominant and when to be tender and vulnerable.And, oh, that combination.

August Hyde is now one of my favorite book boyfriends. He has all the essential components of an irresistible book boyfriend: he’s emotionally complex, romantic and haunted by a past tragedy he feels responsible for. Oh, and he’s also handsome and he likes his sex on the naughtier side. 😉

Ruby is an awesome, free-spirited character, but she’s also lost in a way. She’s searching for something, and just like so often happens–she doesn’t know what it is she’s looking for–until she finds it. Ruby finds what she’s looking for when she takes a job working for August Hyde, the reclusive writer she’s heard so many rumors about.

I loved seeing how Ruby helps brings August out of his reclusive shell. And it was great how he brought out a side of Ruby that made her feel capable and empowered.  Her methods work at getting the home-bound author out of his grand mansion, and those methods are quite fun to read about (hint, hint), and long the way they realize they’re better as a couple than they are apart.

 

Great read, 5/5 stars!

Full Blurb

Preppy finds himself back in a world he once loved, but no longer recognizes. His dim smile can’t hide his inner turmoil and the people he views as family all suddenly feel like polite strangers.

 

Except for one person. A girl with dark eyes and even darker hair.

A girl who isn’t even an option.

 

At least, not anymore.

 

Dre can’t decide who she’s going to listen to. Her heart, her head, or her body. Because two out of those three things have her heading right back to Logan’s Beach. Closure is what she tells herself she’s seeking, but when she unlocks doors that were never meant to be opened she soon discovers that when it comes to Samuel Clearwater, closure might NEVER be an option.

 

This is book six in the King Series and the second part of Preppy and Dre’s story.

EXCERPT

 

“Oh yeah?” Preppy asked, taking a step forward, crowding me in, staring deep into my eyes with an intensity that had me biting down hard on my lower lip. “Do YOU like a clean look, Doc? Or do you like it dirty? Beards. Tattoos…scars?”

Yes, I like it dirty. So dirty.

I was stunned into silence. Preppy’s proximity was fucking with my brain, and I was afraid I was going to blurt out something that would dig me a deeper hole than I’d already dug for myself.  I opened my mouth to answer, but I couldn’t get the words out. Not like I needed to. Preppy answered for me. “If I remember correctly, you like it dirty. Real fucking dirty.”

He took another step. “Remember that first time? In the field? By the train tracks? Remember how I pulled your hair while I fucked you from behind and stretched you open? Remember how it felt to have me moving inside of you? How it felt when you came and screamed in my fucking ear? I do. I remember. Thought of that scream every fucking day since. It was deafening.” He chuckled and pressed his teeth against his bottom lip. He groaned, the sound shot straight to my pussy. “I can still fucking hear it now.”

So can I.

The hair on the back of my neck stood on end. “What are you doing?” I asked, trying to step around him, but he pressed his hands against the wall, caging me in. The warmth of his chest radiated onto mine. I tried to look anywhere but into his eyes, afraid of what I might see, but there wasn’t anywhere else to look. He moved even closer.

Preppy pressed his knee between my thighs, parting my legs. “Me?” he asked, with mock innocence. “I’m just reminiscing with an old friend.”

“This doesn’t feel like just reminiscing.”

He stared intensely into my eyes. “No, not YET it doesn’t.” He grinned. “But it fucking will. Soon.”

New Release Catching Zia by Becca Jameson

catching-zia

Welcome to the Spring Training series. Spring Training follows the lives of several major league baseball players as they deal with the fame and reality of life and love. This first book in the series, Catching Zia, features the second baseman and his desire to meet a woman who isn’t after him for his money or his celebrity status.

With two strikes against him, this baseball player is desperate to make contact.

Zia’s main passion in life is art. And she’d gladly spend days on end sketching the hunky man who stops to admire her work while jogging through the park one sunny afternoon.

Brett has been ogling Zia for days. The sketch in her lap provides the perfect opening. When it’s immediately obvious she has no idea he’s a major league baseball player, he relishes the opportunity to take a gorgeous woman out on a normal date.

But what Brett doesn’t know is that Zia grew up with a compulsive liar, and his omission is more than she can tolerate. Second chances are rare in this life, and somehow Brett manages to squander that one also. He’s got an uphill battle if he wants to fight for this strong-willed woman.

Favorite Quotes

“I want to sit in the stands with you and hold your hand and share my passion.”

 

“I’d really like to move on to the part where I make you scream my name.”

 

“Artists don’t really like people to refer to our art as coloring, big guy.”

“Professional baseball players don’t really like to have their practices referred to as tossing the ball around with their friends.”

New Release! Ego Maniac by Vi Keeland

egomaniac-available-now

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.

I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.

He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.  

 

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.

Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.  

 

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office.  He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.  

I was swindled out of ten grand.

 

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.

I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients.  But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.

I never expected my body to react every time we argued.  Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

 

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships.  And my job was to help people save their marriages.

The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.  

And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
