GIVEAWAY! SAY YES by J. R. Ward

James failed.

He tried to be what they wanted.

He tried to deny it.

He tried to be a good Catholic boy…but it’s become too much.

He craves pain, submission.

He’s denied himself far too long, and it’s eating him alive.

 

Charles thrives off the exchange of power. He knows the world revolves around control. It’s given and taken like currency, in business and in pleasure. He won’t get attached, though, or so he tells himself, until James turns his world upside down. He’s defiant and snarky, but Charles can taste the submission on him.

 

Charles holds the key to his salvation but James has to Say Yes.

 

What are other authors saying about Say Yes?

 

Author Kerry Heavens says: “Yes – to the delicious slow burn which goes head to head with an intense urgency. Yes – to James’ soft vulnerability that meets its match in Charles’ steely determination. Yes – to the forbidden vs the shameless. Yes – to more…I’m saying YES!”Continue Reading

DIRTY DOZEN! RISE OF THE BEAST by Devyn Quinn

DIRTY DOZEN! RISE OF THE BEAST by Devyn Quinn

Joyfully Reviewed is excited to welcome Author Devyn Quinn!!

Morgan Saint-Evanston has prevailed over every demented beast sprung from the otherworld, but now he finds himself tormented by an earthside foe who could destroy everything he’s built in the mortal realm. Forced to turn to a magickal ally to preserve the sanctity of Blackthorne Manor and safeguard its secrets, he discovers that the bewitching creature’s services come at a chilling price: the very part of his soul that harbors his humanity.

 

Julienne Blackthorne is bonded to Morgan by blood, but the emotional and erotic ties that bind them are fraying as his lost humanity sends him spiraling downward to the furthest extremes of darkness and depravity. As Julienne struggles to save the man she loves from utter and eternal ruin, she must delve into her own dark powers at the risk of forsaking her sanity.

 

As Morgan and Julienne steel themselves to do battle with his greatest inner demons and those who would deny him his legacy, they must confront the very real threat that his fragmented psyche will lead him to the edge of self-destruction—and the destruction of all they hold dear, both in this world and in their hearts.

IRRESISTIBLE YOU by Kate MeaderIrresistible You by Kate Meader
Series: Chicago Rebels #1
Published by Pocket Genres: Contemporary


 

Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?

He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

I was attracted to Kate Meader’s Irresistible You from the description.  I thought it was unique for three estranged sisters to inherit a hockey team, be forced to work and live together.  This basically guaranteed lots of emotion and I love a story that gives the feels. Ms. Meader didn’t disappoint.  Irresistible You is just freaking great.  I will be the first to say that I am a bit of a suspense junkie so a straight up contemporary is unusual for me.  However, the blurb hooked me and the seductive chemistry between Harper and Remy kept me turning the pages.

 

Irresistible You didn’t have as much of the sister storyline as I anticipated but Meader more than made up for it with the romance.  The scenes where all three sisters are together are hilarious especially pottery night 😊 Each of the girls are wildly different which I find intriguing. I cannot wait to find out what happens when they find their men.

 

Harper and Remy are two fascinating characters.  Each are stereotyped by their peers and each other.  As they pull apart each other’s layers the emotional and sexual tension becomes palpable and downright irresistible. Pun intended 😊 Ms. Meader is very good at creating a bond between the reader and her characters.  For instance, Remy’s family is simply gold.  It’s impossible not to fall in love with them and it’s easy to see how he became a good man.  While he thrived from his family and their support Harper thrived from her determination to surpass all her naysayers.  The number one naysayer being her father.  Irresistible You is a heady romance that will make you weak in the knees but it is also a powerful story built around strong characters.

 

Kate Meader’s Chicago Rebels series is a Hit! I Loved it and I’m Joyfully Recommending it! Irresistible You is a sexy, sassy, oh so tasty feast.

THIEF’S MARK by Carla NeggersThief's Mark by Carla Neggers
Series: Sharpe and Donovan #7
Published by Harlequin Genres: Suspense


 

FBI agents, Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan, are on the final day of their honeymoon and are halfway looking forward to several meetings they have set up with colleagues in London the next day before flying home and starting work and their new lives together.  But, as normal with their anticipated schedules, their plans are changed with the notification that Oliver York, a wealthy man they know is an international art thief as well as a semi-friend, has been involved with a death.  On top of that, just earlier that same day, they discover that Emma’s grandfather has experienced a break-in at his house.  There is no way they could be connected…or could they?

 

Emma and Colin immediately travel to Oliver York’s farm, where the death occurred, and try to help out however they can, but not to step on any toes.  When they get to the scene, Oliver’s on the run, an ex-MI5 agent is one of the witnesses, and no one can identify the dead man.  It’s a twisty journey that will take the various characters from London to York to Ireland to Scotland and even to the U.S. before the final answers will be discovered on why this man was killed and who was behind it.  The why of the killing makes Oliver relive the terrible night more than thirty years ago, when he witnessed his parents’ murder, and he was kidnapped.  Only the help of Emma, Colin, his trusted manager and the new love of his life, his childhood friend Henrietta, will help Oliver discover the truth about what happened that deadly night that has haunted him for so long.

 

A woman trying to make a go at her second profession and a reclusive, and former unacknowledged art thief, come together over a death in Thief’s Mark.  Oliver has spent his life trying to put what happened the night he became an orphan behind him.  His path has been a unique one, to be sure, and one that placed him in contact with Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan, as well as Emma’s grandfather, Wendell Sharpe. Henrietta’s path was not as twisty, but unusual on its own with equal parts of law enforcement and gardening.  I have to admit that I have often wondered if Oliver would ever have a happy ending as I have come to know him in the previous books.  I loved watching as Oliver not only discovered the truth about the night he was kidnapped, but to also open himself up to the love that was right there waiting for him.  I also loved watching as Henrietta put her talents towards proving that Oliver had nothing to do with the latest killing and to help him fill in the final holes of that pivotal night.  While Emma and Colin were definitely there and involved in solving the murder, this book was totally about Oliver and Henrietta’s love story and a great way to get Emma and Colin back at things after their honeymoon.  Thief’s Mark has all of the things I have come to expect from a Sharpe & Donovan book: thrilling suspense, humor, and just the right amount of romance to keep things from getting too gritty.  While I loved that Oliver has his happy ending, there are still a couple of characters that I am waiting to get theirs.
