Review of Cat 🐱 Haus by Cat Johnson

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_81Ejnvsfq5L__SL160_I loved this story. John and Cate must remove the wall around their hearts in order to let love in. Both feel, for Cate her profession and for John reasons unknown; they do not deserve love. When emotions become high and jealousy becomes a huge factor; a decision must be made. Thankfully, at the advise of one of Cate’s clients, a decision was made. I loved, what I want to call the partial ending. Please be a book four to let us know John’s reasoning and how the true happy ever after “Pretty Woman” ending could be.

Want to take a peek behind that red velvet curtain? Come join our Club Alpha authors as they take you into the inner sanctums of some of the hottest, most exclusive clubs you’ll ever have the privilege of witnessing. Some come for the discipline, some come for the thrill, some come to find sweet passion, but all go away initiated in the ways of love. 
 
Surrender to the dominance of these thirteen novels from bestselling authors including New York Times and USA Today bestsellers Adriana Hunter, Selena Kitt and Terry Towers. 
 
Club Alpha isn’t a place—it’s a state of mind you’re going to want to visit again and again. 
 
Claiming His Tease by Amy Valenti – Josh is all Dom and sexy as hell, and he’s prepared to wait for Lena to come to him. All she has to do is kneel at his feet, and she’ll be his. But is she too stubborn to give him the satisfaction? 
Review:  
“You have me Sir.” said Lena.  This book had me puzzled at first.  I was truly optioning to skip to the next, but then BAM! I was hooked with he power play between Lena and Josh.  I had to see it “played” out. LOL : ) Lena’s character had me visualizing the geek with a naughty secret.  Josh, on the other hand, confused my visualization process until later in the story.  When it was stated that he had just arrived from London, I thought of this sexy Channing Tatum like man with a British accent, only to later be diffused by finding out he was just there on business.  Either way, he was sexy. : )
I liked the book overall and if this is what you like to read then it’s just for you.
 
Breaking Boundaries by Sienna Stapleton – With the hopes of expanding her sexual horizons, Sara books a weekend at a sexual therapy retreat. Once there, she quickly learns that the weekend will be much more than she bargained for.
Review:
Sarah is a woman who has been raised that being a curvy woman is not sexy.  Well, thank God her lover doesn’t feel that way.  Adam truly loves her and just wants to show her how much, but because of the teachings of Sara‘s mother, her self esteem is broken and it is affecting their sex life.  To remedy this, Sara registered for what she thought was a simple couples retreat.  Little did she know that she would be in for one glorious weekend involving sexual exploratory BDSM.  The love between Sara and Adam that was once on shaky ground grows much more solid and stronger.  One thing that I like about reading these books is that I get to read an new author and experience various reading styles.  
 
The Billionaires’ Club: Deceiving Him by Terry Towers – Going under cover, Lexie finds herself in a world like none other. After she meets the sexy billionaire Vince and is introduced to unimaginable pleasures, can she still go through with her expose? 
Review:
Fearing the loss of her job as a reporter, Lexie decided that she needed the story of all stories to present to her boss to secure her job.  A story of the elicit but very secluded “Billionaires’ Club”. You must be a member to get into this club and then have your active participation described by an identification badge.  This book proved that the art of deception comes with consequences and Lexie’s went by the name of Vince. Using the help of her BFF Nadine, who is a waitress at the club, Lexie was able to sneak in via the back door. The funny thing is that the badge that Nadine provided for her was not what she was ready for.  I look forward to reading part two of this series.
 
Club Soria by Emilia Kincade – Maya’s life is falling apart. She runs away to Thailand to find some peace. When she is invited to Club Soria, she doesn’t know what to expect. Her ‘awakening’ catches her entirely by surprise.
Review:
Maya thought that her life was falling apart when her jerk of a boyfriend decided that she wasn’t what he desired anymore.  After kicking him to the curb, she decided that she needed to get away and what better way to do that than to visit her sister in Thailand.  There, her sister thought that she needed to get out and have fun at a place called Club Soria. This club was owned and operated by a secretive billionaire named Javier. Little did Maya know that Javier would be the answer that she needed to make her feel alive.
 
The Sybian Club by Selena Kitt – Tasha convinces husband, Max, to buy a Sybian, starting a club to pay for it. Friend Ashley helps but Tasha doesn’t know how to tell Max she wants to add more to their sex life than just a new toy. 
His Desire, her Surrender by Malia Mallory – When Marcus tracks Tabitha down to resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands, can Tabitha prove that she has what it takes to be both his partner and his submissive? 
 
Escape by PJ Adams – Just who is the masked stranger at Club Extraordinaire and what is it that draws Julie so powerfully? Is it the way he’s so confident and masterful? Or is it that he reminds her so strongly of her ex? 
 
Pavlov by Arden Aoide – Tyrone Parker had obstinacy down to an art and was the reigning champion of Having the Last Word. He had his own definition of Domination that had women running away fast. Until the one that stayed. 
Control: Masters of the Sanctuary by Elsa Day – When Amy sneaks into the sanctuary, she has no idea what she’s in for. She runs into trouble, and Master J is the only one who can help her. But his health comes with a price: her total submission. 
 
At the Billionaire’s Command by Juliette Jaye – Recent small town transplant to New York City Sophie never expects to hook up with the billionaire boss of her company. But the even bigger surprise is when she finds herself falling in love with him. 
 
Rough Edges by Adriana Hunter – I didn’t expect to wake up, unable to move. When he told me that I was a player in his wicked game I knew I had made a mistake. I didn’t ask for this. I didn’t want it. At least not in the beginning. 
 
Club Red by Sophie Sawyer – When curvy beauty Tori visits Club Red for no-strings fun, the last thing she expects is to find everything she ever wanted.
 
Precious Pet by Candy Quinn – What started as a way to make some extra money ended with a demi-god opening college student Rachael’s mind to the bliss and freedom of submission.

Review: The other books in the box set were alright. Some took me over the edge, but the others didn’t get me at all.  I guess I am just prone to paranormal romance novels. So if you are into BDSM then I guess this box set is for you.

Ink Reunited

Readers begged for Sassy…now here she is…scars and all.

When we first started writing Midnight Ink, we’d decided to write a story with 8 books written by 8 authors set in the same tattoo shop in New Orleans. We decided that we all should have one character who showed up in each book. She wouldn’t be too prominent, but she would be there.

Okay, so Sassy could never stand in the sidelines. Oops? We hadn’t planned on writing her sotry, but then we started to mix our characters even more. Shep, my hero from Ink Inspired ended up in 4 other novellas. So when readers got to the last book and realized Sassy hadn’t gotten her happy ending, they begged for her story. I loved Sassy. I even came up with her at first–hence why I was the one who wrote Ink Reunited. I knew some of her back story, though I didn’t tell the others so we wouldn’t put too much into our stories.

We hadn’t expected the response to Midnight Ink and Sassy like we got. OMG you readers are freaking amazing. SO. AMAZING. So this one is for you. Enjoy Sassy, Rafe, and Ian. Yes, she gets two men. Like one would be enough to handle her? Ha!

This book is set in Midnight Ink and you will see some familiar faces. But not too many…this is Sassy’s story after all. It’s also another prequel to my Montgomery Ink series. So yes, you get to see Austin one more time before his book in October. 🙂 Happy Reading!

Montgomery Ink Book 0.6

From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy ever after for a character whose story was begged to be told.

Sassy Bordeaux is the Midnight Ink receptionist, honorary godmother, best friend to many, and matchmaker expert. In the past two months, she’s watched eight couples fall in love, make mistakes, and find their happy endings. Though she might have had hand in each of those, she’s yet to find the peace she’s desired. When the men from her past come into Midnight Ink, she’s forced to face what she left behind and what could happen if she lets go of her pain and finds a future she deserves.

Rafe Chavez and Ian Steele remember their time with Sassy like it was yesterday, yet have worked hard to move on. Or at least try to. Now they’re both back in New Orleans for the woman they loved and for the connection they shared with each other. It will take more than the usual groveling, pleading and begging for these three to overcome their history, but once they take that step, the streets of New Orleans will never be the same.

Midnight Ink – Box Set

MIDNIGHT INK

MIDNIGHT INK

One tattoo shop in one infamous city sets the stage for 8 stories about resolutions, kink, love and ink. Get ready to let the good times roll!

Report For Booty by Jayne Rylon
When Burke Levine got marching orders, he couldn’t bear to make his girlfriend Chavon White a military widow. Years later, discovering his name tattooed on her perfect ass via a New Orleans’ artist’s portfolio confirms his epic mistake. Will Midnight Ink’s New Year’s Eve party grant them a second chance?

Picture Her Bound by Sidney Bristol
She’s a police officer desperate enough to break the rules. He’s the bounty hunter standing between her and ruin. Picture Her Bound is —the first book in the brand new Bayou Bound series from Sidney Bristol—a story of right, wrong and binding pleasures.

Not So Over Eli by Robin L. Rotham
Paramedic Bart Rigger finally has the life he wants rather than the one his father dictated, thanks to hot new fiancée Rhonda Giannetti. But a whirlwind trip to New Orleans puts it all at risk when he’s forced to confront unresolved feelings for his first love, tattoo artist Elijah Bell.

Inked Memories by PG Forte
All Sophie wants is a tattoo to commemorate her battle with cancer. What she gets is celebrity tattoo artist Declan Ross, the same sexy bad-boy who used to rock her world. This time, they’ve both got scars and it’s still the ones you can’t see that are the hardest to cover.

To The Bone by RG Alexander
Etta Santos has one resolution—to cover up the last visible evidence of her past. When Christie Ryder, sexy musician and new owner of Midnight Ink, pursues her, he seems too good to be true. His music touches her soul, but can she risk trusting another bad boy with her heart?

Dangerously Inked by Eden Bradley
When the tattoo artist Finn Carter lined up for his visit to New Orleans turns out to be the mysteriously alluring sub he played on New Year’s Eve at The Bastille, the city’s BDSM club, more than his skin will be marked forever—and Rosie is just the woman to bring this playboy to his knees.

Ink Inspired (Montgomery Ink 0.5) by Carrie Ann Ryan
In Carrie Ann Ryan’s Ink Inspired, the prequel to her upcoming Montgomery Ink series, Ice Princess Shea Little wants ink and a change. Shepard Montgomery not only wants to ink her, but get through that icy exterior. Together, they’ll heat up the streets of New Orleans…and each other.

Blank Canvas (Big Easy #1) by Mari Carr
Disillusioned by divorce, Jennifer’s about to discover her wild side, starting with a tattoo from Caliph. And continuing with submission, spankings, wax play…all under the skilled hands of her wickedly sexy tattoo master.

My Review:

OMG, thanks for referring me to this book Carrie Ann Ryan! I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, LOVED EVERY FREAKING MINUTE OF THIS BOOK! So sorry about screaming, but DAMN; Carrie Ann Ryan, you should have told me to keep ice water next to me at all times. This book was awesome!

When I read the first book (Report For Booty) I thought, wow this is a really cute story.  The story took on an unhappy tone at first. I was like so upset that the soldier decided, on his own, to leave the woman that he loved “just in case”.  I am a romantic and I believe in fighting for what you want. I felt he took the easy road out.  As the story continued I gained a true respect for his reasons, but still… IJS.

To The Bone ” had me falling in love with my husband all over again. LOL If you don’t know, I am married to a master musician, writer, producer and most of all, father of my three beautiful gifts from God. Of all of the story’s, this one really touched my spirit. Talking about love at first sight and being there for someone, Christie Ryder is that and more.  And with Etta Santos falling in love with her teenage crush; HEAVEN!

Every book was HOT, HOT, HOT! They really flowed from one story to the next perfectly.  The authors did an amazing job with this collaboration. Carrie Ann Ryan did not let me down with Ink Inspired (Montgomery Ink 0.5). I am looking forward to the series as I am a huge fan of hers. Her books have gotten me through some tough times when I have been bed ridden and not feeling 100%.   Thanks again to all of the authors that participated in this project. I have added some authors to my list of must reads and follows. LOL
