Summary from the author:
Anya Gage has learned that to get anything good in life, you have to work for it. She has no expectations, no dreams.
Then she finds herself at a party where she doesn’t want to be and she meets Knight.
Knight Sebring knows who he is, what he wants and what he likes. And he gets it. But he never expected something as sweet as Anya Gage to wander into his bedroom during a party he did not expect to be having to borrow his phone.
Knight tries to leave Anya to the life she deserves of white picket fences and a man who watches football on Sundays – good, normal and clean. But when Anya comes to his nightclub and finds herself in a situation, he knows someone has to look after her, he can’t fight it anymore and he decides that man will be him.
Knight teaches Anya that, just as with the bad, in life you should also expect the good. And he teaches her this by giving it to her.
But Knight has a dark past and just as he desires Anya for exactly who she is, he fears when she finds out exactly the man he has become and always intends to be, she’ll leave him for good, normal and clean.
WOW!!!! Just WOW!!! I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book but found myself pleasantly surprised after just a few minutes of starting it. Let me warn you right now, this is not your typical feel good sexy romantic love story. This is about a guy who deals in illegal businesses but still strives to have a regular loving life with the woman he loves. He knows what he does for a living is not acceptable, and illegal, in society but he’s involved in the business because he wants to provide the women that work for him a safe environment. He understands that women will always work in the sex industry and so he sees an opportunity to allow these women to sell their bodies in the most safe way possible by providing security for the women and checking out all clientele. So Knight becomes a hero not only to these women selling their bodies but also to his woman Anya for whom he will do anything necessary to protect. It was an interesting story line and I absolutely fell in love with Knight. He takes Alpha male to a whole new level for me. He is demanding and bossy and takes what he wants, when he wants. And Anya loves it. I loved her innocence and the fact that she had a pretty rough life up until the night she meets Knight for the first time. It was nice to see a woman who had been struggling to make her way through the world alone for so long meet a man who loved her and wanted to take care of her. This story is certainly not for the faint of heart as there are many taboo subject addressed in this story. The sex scenes were smoking hot. Knight is brusk, controlling and down right hot and so damn bossy I couldn’t even believe it. I loved it! I loved that he made Anya call him Daddy while in the bedroom. Kristen Ashley managed to pull it off flawlessly. The dialogue is a little hard to get used to at first. It’s a little more abrupt and not at all flowery like your usual romance novels. Knight is abrupt and short with his demands the way you would expect someone like his character to talk. A lot of times authors make even the bad guys sound like they are well read and educated men. It always makes the story line so much less believable for me. Kristen Ashley’s take on the bad guy actually being able to be a good guy made for a really interesting and fu read for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves their alpha male heroes and of course super hot, and controlling, sex scenes. I just want people to be aware that the story line might be unexpected, and morally unacceptable, but it should not deter anyone from reading this really well written book. It is fiction after all. I am very much looking forward to the other books in this series.

Tom Clemmins is an A-list actor whose life revolves around work and an onslaught of women. He travels to Bora Bora for a much-needed break. Tom has a few ideas of how he’ll enjoy his vacation, but love isn’t one of them. Until he sees Tess.
Reserving a private shark-feeding excursion to scatter her husband’s ashes into the lagoon, Tess is furious when Mr. Hollywood bribes his way onto the boat, leaving her no other choice but to share the boat ride.
Tess is torn between tremendous guilt and zealous lust when their boat ride turns into a week full of romance and desire neither thought imaginable. Utterly smitten with a woman for the first time in his life, Tom casts his commitment phobia aside and whisks Tess off to Malibu where he introduces her as his “girlfriend” on the red carpet.
As the paparazzi besiege, can Tess survive the media blitz that ensues in order to find her second chance at love?
Tom’s tongue drifted down her neck and back to her lips, playing slowly with her tongue. The warmth of his sweet mouth tasted so good that she instantaneously began to kiss him back. She had suppressed her need to feel desire for a man, hidden the longing of a man’s hands on her flesh and buried her cravings in sleepless nights full of tears.
Taking pleasure in the heat of his mouth, she began to shake uncontrollably. All of her emotions came rushing to the surface, covering her in a tingling sensation. His fingers threaded through her hair and cradled her face with his thumbs. Teasing her, he plunged his tongue deeper, sending pulsating waves rippling through her very core. Craving more, she wrapped her arms around his neck and molded her body to his. Feeling his erection, she urgently thrust her hips forward searching for more. Her heart hammered violently in her chest as her fingers twisted through his dark hair. Tess pressed forward taking his mouth with hot, wet, indecent kisses, savoring the flavor of his lips.
He eased back and placed his palm over her pounding heart. “Easy,” he whispered with a smoldering laugh. Both chuckled as she buried her face in his chest.
Tom led her away from the beach up into the palm trees. The darkness concealed a bungalow tucked between lush foliage and palm trees.
“Wow! Is this for us?” Tess gasped.
“It’s beautiful,” Were the only words she could utter before he drew her into his arms, kissing her fervently, keeping up with her hungry lips.
Standing under the starlit sky, he slid his hands down the small of her back, following the curve of her ass, grasping it with the perfect amount of tension. Tess softly moaned aloud, encouraging him to press himself firmly against her. He clutched her ribcage and brushed his thumb over the material covering her nipple, sending another set of ripples surging through her. “Oh, God,” she whimpered.
Making their way inside, Tess unbuttoned Tom’s shirt, exploring the details of his carved chest and stomach, letting her fingers play with the thin trail of dark hair leading into his jeans. Wanting to know the full extent of the force pressing against her hips, she unbuttoned his jeans with trembling fingers. Reaching in, she stroked the length of him and a low groan escaped his lips.
He reached down, taking hold of both of her hands. “Trust me, Tess. Tonight is all about you.” Tom chuckled. “You can make it up to me tomorrow.”
“I trust you,” she whispered under his lips.
He unzipped her dress, slipping it to the floor before laying her back onto the bed. Tom took his time, sliding his fingers from the hallow at the base of her neck to the center of her breasts, cupping one in his hand. His warm, wet tongue tickled her nipple. He fastened his mouth over the erect bud, taking it in and biting her tenderly before moving to the next.
Caressing her hips, Tom’s lips traveled down between her thighs. She hung her head over the edge of the bed as his talented tongue explored the soft skin between her legs before sinking inside her. All of her worries faded away under the strokes of his tongue. Tess didn’t take long, peaking almost immediately. Tears stung the corners of her eyes as her release came again and again. Gasping for air, she opened her eyes and lifted her head to watch him.
Rising up onto the palms of his hands, he pressed his body on top of hers. Tess slipped her thumbs into the waistband of his jeans, pushing them down past his hips. Raising her legs around his waist, her hands took hold of his firm ass while her toes wriggled his jeans to his ankles. She smiled up at him as she tossed his jeans to the floor with her toes.
Tom drew her leg up around his hip. Seeking admittance, he nudged her gently.
In one swift move, she flipped him over onto his back. “Do you mind if I drive for minute?” she grinned. “I’m a little nervous.”
He let out a chuckle and quickly imitated her maneuver, pinning Tess to the bed. “I know it’s been a long time for you. I promise I’ll be nice, but I’ll last longer if I drive.”

Confessions of a Book Heaux’s Review and Author interview links:
Written for mature audiences and contains kinky graphic sexual encounters, profanity, bondage & discipline, loads of steamy verbosity, and an alpha male that’ll make you quiver, laugh and swoon.
Arrogant, brutally honest and fond of bondage and discipline, Tucker McGrath demands respect in all aspects of his life. He is used to getting his way in all things and more importantly, getting and having his way with anyone that he wants. Married and divorced twice, the real estate mogul has as given up on love.
Enter Lilliana, a 30 something divorcee and dental hygienist. After inheriting a large tract of land and house from a close relative, she has relocated to an opulent area in Connecticut hoping to start her life anew, and leave her clingy ex-husband behind. Stubborn, opinionated, and impatient, she has no interest in selling her land to the money hungry vultures that have started sniffing around. She also has no interest in falling in love or being pursued by a certain attractive yet arrogant alpha male interested in her property.
Tucker, however, has other plans. Realizing that Lilliana is sitting on a real estate goldmine, he sets his sight on trying to obtain it at any cost. Even if it means deceiving her and buying his way into her heart. But Lilliana can’t be bought and Tucker gets more than he bargained for when she rebuffs his financial and sexual advances at every turn.
Their chemistry and physical attraction to one another is undeniable and Lilliana has a way of bringing out the best in the usually cold and austere Tucker. Just when things are heating up and Tucker starts to fall for Lilliana, she discovers where his true motivations lie, forcing her to seek sweet revenge the only way she knows how – by giving in to his every fantasy and toying with his emotions.
“I’m not friends with Adam. Trust me, that man was as useful as a blood clot and as appealing as a raging case of gonorrhea.”
“Okay, I seriously don’t want to hear his name again. The only name I want you saying when you’re in my bed is mine, in which ever form you choose. For example: Oh, God, Tucker or Master Tucker. Maybe even, Sir or King Tucker. I’d even settle for, Tucker, tongue wielding expert and God of cunnilingus and love making.”
Lilliana laughed and fell onto her back.
“What’s so funny? You think I’m kidding?” he poked his finger into her belly button.
“You know, I really am the fastest person I know at shucking corn,” she stated to which it was Tucker’s turn to chuckle heartily. “No, really – I won first prize at the county state fair in 2000.”
Tucker’s eyes widened with humor. “No, shit? How many entries were there?”
“You’d ask something like that, wouldn’t you, Mr. Competitive? Eight entries.”
“Impressive,” he nodded.
“That was the same year I was runner up for Ms. Cloud County,” Lilliana declared proudly.
“Shit, I’m fucking a genuine Cloud County beauty queen! That was a good year for you,” Tucker grinned.
“Runner up beauty queen,” she clarified. “The first-place winner was well-deserved. She played the flute beautifully for her talent. I heard years later that it was her skin-flute talents that really got her the crown,” Lilliana chortled.
“Niiice. What was your talent?”
Lilliana’s cheeks blushed and she shook her head not wanting to embarrass herself.
“You brought it up, now disclose,” Tucker ordered.
“I could balance books on my head while doing various chores. It was so silly.”
“Do as you’re told, woman!” Tucker pushed Lilliana off the bed. “Entertain me!” he clapped his hands as if he was the king and Lilliana was the jester.
Lilliana looked around the room and pulled a few books of various sizes off his bookshelf. She peeked over her shoulder at Tucker and grabbed two more. Tucker’s eyes rounded when he saw how many she was holding. Lilliana winked and grabbed one more book, totaling five in all. Tucker sat up in bed, his deep brown eyes dancing with humor.
“What’ll you give me if I can serve you a beer with these books on my head?” she asked.
“Anything you want,” Tucker licked his lips. “But I’d be even more impressed if you could suck me off with those books on your head.”
Lilliana wondered, could she do it? She did enjoy a challenge. If doing it meant seeing that magnificent smile of Tucker’s, she sure as hell was going to do her best.
Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…
Carson Stinger was a man who didn’t play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn’t care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her…
When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn’t possible. At least not yet
Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars
Another Grand Slam by Mia Sheridan!
The main theme of this book was Transformation, and seeing how the two main characters in this book transformed was absolutely amazing!
When Grace was first introduced… She had every aspect of her life planned! She even had some very ridiculous views on her needed number of sexual partners! I kept thinking! “Jesus girl pull the stick out!”
And then she met Carson Stinger Straight Male Performer… At first he was just…. TOO MUCH! For the few chapters of the book I was laughing like a fool at all of the offensive things that slid out of his mouth without remorse. The way Grace reacted to these words made it all the more entertaining. In the early stages of the book Carson was the kind of guy you would want for a few (hundred) rolls in the sac. He said all the right things, and had the action to back them up.
As he transformed, I found myself just…. LOVING HIM! The man he transforms into over the span of the book….I… There are no words other than… If he were real, My name would be “Book Heaux-Stinger.”
This book is has everything that any fan of a true Romance Novel would LOVE! It’s a great read! And I truly suggest you pick it up!
A dangerous world of sex, lust and violence…
All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.
The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.
Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to the gang, and to a world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.
Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars
This is a book I read forever ago, and loved it. I’ve read it a few times since, anytime I need a scorching hot read after a an emotional book or one I found a bit boring. It’s definitely a guilt pleasure, with amazing writing and story telling. This book is nothing like any other book, I try to describe by saying its crazy Hunger Games-ish with all different the sectors and its setting only this is not kid friendly. No this is a steamy hot, beyond scorching read. This series pushes the boundaries with it’s sinfully and wicked ways, in all the best possible ways.
Jasper and Noelle attraction jumps off the pages. Noelle with all her unwanted innocents draws Jasper in deep. I was scared she would never be able to handle the tough and sex craze O’Kane gang. How could anyone who grew up in Eden survive? Jasper her own personal hero, the bad boy who isn’t looking for love. No Jasper is there to help and support O’Kane Gang, being the leaders right hand man. He has enough trouble without adding to it. Only Jasper never expected Noelle to turn into a strong and curious woman. Now, he’s not the only one who notices. I found their love and attraction lingering with me, long after I had most of their answers. I was glued to this story, escaping into the O’Kane world, Sector Four. The Broken Circle. A sector that has an old western attitude, where the good guys are all wrapped in tattoos and leather. A place where pleasure flows freely.
