Amour Amour by @KBRitchie - a GIVEAWAY!!!

Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Release date: 12/12/14


Love is a circus

"Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.”

The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.”

When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future--acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world.

Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be just background to his spellbinding show.

This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.

It’s no secret that Kingsley is my favorite out of the Original Sinners bunch. Nora is amazing, so is Griffin and Søren, but King is the best of the best for me! When I heard the next White Years book was The King I was so excited I couldn't’ stand it. After reading, I’m even more certain King is my favorite. I loved getting his perspective, seeing how things started with him and how he came to be King of the Eight Circle. Hell, I loved everything about this one!
   “I have something to tell you. A story. And I can’t tell you why I’m telling you the story until after the story.”

Kingsley Edge is the owner of Circle Eight. The boss man. He’s an intriguing bisexual man, he’s a secret switch in the BDSM world and he is comfortable in his own skin. That’s who he is now. There was a time when he was just a man who owned a strip club in NYC. A man who had gone years without seeing his bestfriend/lover. A man back from war with no real direction. A man with no true path. But when Søren came back into his life, things changed for him.

   photo ba1b83d2-7b82-4fda-b1d4-dd9aaa6fb6c8_zpse1d12fe6.jpg

I love the dynamic of Søren and King’s relationship. I am a huge fan of Nora, but in my heart of hearts, I have these incredible fantasies that King and Søren belong together and will end up with each other in the end. I know I’m delusional. I also know why it would never work and I know Nora and Søren are meant to be but I can’t help it. I love these two together so much.

Most of this was written pre-Nora. Nora was around, but it was before Kingsley had a part in her life. Even though Nora isn’t really in the book, she is still a big deal (view spoiler).
Back to Kingsley and Søren, I love the back and forth banter between these two...
“You know I have to have more sexy to make up for all the sex you aren’t having. Someone has to restore the balance in the universe.”

“The universe thanks you for your sacrifice.”


But I also loved the more sweet and loving moments too.
“When I met you,”  Søren said again, “it was the first time I questioned my calling.”

This wasn’t only the Kingsley and Søren show, there was another huge character that we’ve only got snippets of in the past. Sam. Sam and Kingsley have a very unique relationship. Reading about them gave this a different kind of element. It just worked. I love how protective King was over Sam, even though she really didn’t need it. You could feel the love between these two.

Watching Kingsley grow from a man who had no real direction, who was broken from a war and a lost love, and turning into the powerful ruler of his kingdom was really something special.

   photo 0e5f0b3a-a1a1-4548-9dd4-0ce238a179f4_zps55c1fda5.jpg

I hope everyone who reads this book and maybe wasn’t the biggest King fan will end up loving him as much as I do. I mean really, how can you not love this man? He is full of so much love. It might be buried and sometimes come out in a funny way, but it’s there. When he loves someone, he loves them fiercely and unconditionally. He’s really a beautiful person.

Tiffany Reisz never ceases to amaze me with her brilliantness. Her writing is just so damn good. She is able to write taboo stories with BDSM, erotica and so much heart and she does it flawlessly. And her characters- I could read about them forever. this is one of those series I could never grow tired of reading. As long as she keeps writing them, I swear I will keep reading! The King was perfection.

His confession hadn’t been to a priest but about a priest, the priest he loved not despite all the sins they’d committed against each other but because of them, because the sins were what bound them together.
And the love. Of course the love. Always the love.

Christy's Review: 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 steamy stars!

If you’re looking for an erotic, sensual and kinky novella, look no further. Any Way They Want has lots of heat, kink, threesomes etc. But don’t let that full you. It’s not ‘just sex’. There is a great love story here. This love story just happens to involve three people instead of two.

Their love story was the most beautiful one she’d ever heard, and she thought the world, or their little corner of it anyway, should hear it.
This novella starts with the female in their little threesome wanting to do an interview. To share with the world (confidently of course) what it’s like to be in a loving and committed relationships with two people instead of just one.

But before any of that, there was Royce and Shea. Two best friends. College roommates. Confidantes. Then turned partners, lovers, soul mates.

   photo d7a4541d-1169-46ca-afbc-5bab0bba4020_zps1562a0b0.jpg

I have to say, this part of the story (close to half of the novella) was 5 star worthy material. Watching these boys maneuver their way from a friendship to a relationship was wonderful. Shea has questioned his sexuality for a while, but Royce, not so much. Royce has always been attracted to women. Shea is the exception to the rule for him. There is something about his best friend that just sparks that something in him.

He didn’t even compare the difference between kissing a man and a woman, because kissing Shea was like kissing love incarnate, and no one or nothing else had ever come close.

I loved Royce like crazy! And Shea was great too! Luna however was just okay for me. I feel like in time, when I get to know her, I might start to feel that connection with her.

   photo dde805aa-72a2-4134-a0c6-3ddd30f912c0_zpsfa5d6be1.jpg

Sexy, erotic, and emotional. This was a great start to a series. The only issue I had with it is that I felt such a strong connection to Royce and Shea as a couple, the dynamic of the three of them didn’t give me the same connection. I’m sure with time, it will, but for now I have to say I enjoyed all the parts with Royce and Shea more than anything else. I did very much enjoy reading this and I’m looking forward to the second!


I couldn’t have picked two men more opposing than they. One dark-headed, slightly controlling, but intuitive. The other all unruly copper curls, somewhat bashful, but sensual. Yet, my fall for them felt the same—hard and fast.

I never slept around or cheated, but when you're the girl who got dumped for being too kinky--you realize and accept you are different. Somehow, some way, they had to be mine. My mind spun with what could be, and I set out to entice them with my fantasy.

Only, my plot had a twist…Royce and Shea were already lovers. Luckily for me, they liked to share.

Warning: Contains a headstrong daughter of nudist, hippy parents, an Alpha with seriously protective instincts, positive representations of Asperger's Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and oh yeah, M/M, M/M/M, M/M/F, and M/F/M.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 stars!

Poughkeepsie was one of my top reads of 2012 and one of those extremely memorable books. Blake counting smiles, my Beckett… It’s truly unforgettable. I love all these characters and Debra Anastasia is a kick ass writer. Saving Poughkeepsie was a little different than the first two for me in some ways, but I still loved reading about some of my favorite characters in their final book.

Blake and Livia

   photo 9762b71d-0769-4ca1-8bea-50c1f947e723_zps1be36dbb.jpg

Blake is one of those characters that I completely adore. There is something about this guy that puts the biggest smile on my face. Honestly I wish we would have gotten a little more of Blake and Livia in this story. But what we did read of them, I enjoyed. I love how much he’s grown throughout the stories. A totally different man from the guy we first met. Seeing him as a husband and father just warms my heart.

Cole and Kyle

   photo f5d71641-f15b-4783-a808-8df86af3ec2b_zps5533cf11.jpg

After all that Cole and Kyle went through during the last book, I was ecstatic that they finally got the happy they deserved. Cole is one of those characters that it took me a while to warm up to. The first book I didn’t know about him, but now I do. I love how he is with Kyle and some of the great ideas he implemented in this book. Kyle will always be my favorite female in this series. Her spunkiness and fowl mouth won me over from the start.

Beckett and Eve

   photo 7a497ec2-c44a-4e5e-b4a4-13f46afff5b9_zps4e7ffe46.jpg

And last but certainly not least, there is Beckett and Eve. Beckett. My thug with a heart of gold. He is my man. I could read book after book about him. I love the way he always tries to do whats best for his brothers and Eve. Everything Beckett does is for the right reason no matter how wrong it is. He and Eve have a very complicated relationship from the start. It’s not easy. No matter how wrong it is for them to be together, you can’t help who you love. And they are perfect for one another.

One of the main parts of the story line was a little strange for me and took me a while to get into that part of the story. That’s probably why this wasn’t a five star read for me. The writing and characters are fantastic. This author puts the perfect amount of humor, sass, sex and emotion into her writing. And I can’t recommend the first book Poughkeepsie enough. It will forever be one of my favorite books!

The King by Tiffany Reisz release day!!!

the king

Title: The King
Author: Tiffany Reisz
Date of Publication: November 25, 2014


Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this potent threesome can raise him to his rightful place as ruler of Manhattan's kink kingdom. 

Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side—handsomely paid in both bills and blackmail fodder—Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act or chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive apathy—only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret. A man he can never have, but in whose hands Kingsley is reborn to attain even greater heights of sin. He plans to open the ultimate BDSM club­: a dungeon playground for New York's A-list that'll change the scene forever.

The club becomes Kingsley's obsession—and he's enlisted some tough-as-nails help. His new assistant Sam is smart, secretive and totally immune to seduction (by men, at least). She and Kingsley make a wicked team. Still, their combined—and considerable—expertise in domination can't subdue the man who would kill their dream. The enigmatic Reverend Fuller won't rest until King's dream is destroyed. It's one man's sacred mission against another's….

Q/A with Tiffany

-Do you have a favorite book or author you like to recommend? Do you have a comfort read?

I have a set of books I regularly recommend to people. Want to read amazing literature? Read my favorite novel of all time All the King’s Men by Kentucky author Robert Penn Warren. Want to read the most moving love story I’ve ever read? Read The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox. My comfort reads are Sherlock Holmes short stories and Agatha Christie’s Poirot novels.

-What is your guilty pleasure?

I’d need to feel guilt to have a guilty pleasure. Buying office supplies I don’t need is probably the closest I get to a guilty pleasure. I buy them and think about all the people out there who don’t have awesome office supplies like I do and I feel bad for them.

-Favorite Meal?

Coffee and an ice cream sandwich is my version of a “Power Lunch.” The combination of tastes is glorious.

-If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

My non-writer dream job is train engineer (what? I like trains). My realistic non-writer job would be working in a bookstore. That’s what I was doing when I started my writing career.

Excerpt 1:

“How much trouble am I in for getting out of the car without permission?” Kingsley asked.

“None,” Søren said, and Kingsley was wildly disappointed. “Let’s go. We can make it back to school by tonight.”

Kingsley followed him back to the car. The driver opened the door for them. When they were alone again, Kingsley said, “Or…”

“Or what?” Søren demanded.

“Or we could find a hotel and fuck in a real bed for once.”

“We’re not on a date. And here I was wondering where the real Kingsley had gone.”

“What do you mean?” he asked as the driver opened the car door for them. He slipped inside and Søren followed. They were on the road again before Søren answered.

“When you were with Claire—I wasn’t sure you were the same Kingsley I know and barely tolerate.”

“Why? Because I like kids?”

“You were good with her.”

“Kids are fun,” he said. What else was there to say?

“I never considered you would like children.”

“Well…I do. So what?”

“Nothing,” Søren said, laughing to himself. “Nothing at all.”

“I know you see me as some kind of pervert,” Kingsley said. “But believe or not, I am a human being. Yes, I like kids. I might want kids someday. I don’t have much of a family anymore. If I want a family I’ll have to make my own. Sometimes I have thoughts that don’t have anything to do with sex. I’m not just your toy, you know. I have feelings and—”

His impassioned “I have feelings” speech ended abruptly when Søren grabbed him hard by the back of the hair and brought his mouth down in a brutal kiss. Kingsley almost pulled away so he could finish his tirade before realizing he wanted the kiss so much more than the fight.

Kingsley returned the kiss with equal and greater passion. Søren yanked Kingsley’s jacket off him and threw it on the floorboard. Kingsley pulled his own shirt off and rolled on to his back on the bench seat. He’d remember the sensation of leather on his bare back all his life.

“Have you ever had sex in the back of a Rolls Royce?” Kingsley asked, trying not to rip Søren’s shirt in his rush to unbutton it. He needed Søren’s skin on his skin right now.

“No,” Søren said. “But ask me that question again in an hour.”

Before Kingsley could respond to that, Søren grabbed his wrists, pinned them over Kingsley’s head and kissed him again—deeper, slower, but no less punitive. Kingsley groaned, and Søren slapped a hand over his mouth.

“Quiet,” Søren said into Kingsley’s ear. “We aren’t alone, and I’ll gag you until you choke if I have to. Understand?”

Kingsley nodded against Søren’s hand. A curtain and partition separated them from the driver. He couldn’t see them, but if they were loud enough, he could hear them. He’d disobeyed Søren’s orders to stay in the car, he’d yelled at him and talked back. He was going to get it this time.


Søren kissed him again. Kingsley kept his sounds of pleasure to a minimum even when Søren reached between their bodies, unzipped Kingsley’s pants, and stroked him hard. Every muscle in Kingsley’s stomach tightened. He sucked in his breath sharply from the shock of pleasure. It took every bit of self-control not to moan audibly.

“You like this?” Søren asked.

“God, yes, so much,” Kingsley said, lifting his hips against Søren’s hand. He spoke in French and English. He was about to lose control of more than his language skills if Søren didn’t stop touching him like that.

“I think you like it too much.” Søren rose up on his knees and looked down at Kingsley.

“I don’t. I really don’t. I like it exactly as much as you want me to.”

“You’re pathetic when you’re turned on.”

“I am so pathetic right now.”
