Boss is book two in Chianti Kisses series and focuses a great deal on Dom’s point of view.  As we know from the end of Baby V, both families have a history with the mob and Dom and John have worked hard to separate the family business from that. With Rizzo being arrested in Baby V, it looks as though it could finally happen. However, that would just be too easy don’t you think? There is a threat against a family member and Dom does what he feels he must to keep his family safe.  I personally don’t understand why he makes future decisions concerning this, but I’m sure the author has her reasons.

I enjoyed this book very much. V is a strong Italian woman and that mirrors my family closely. We Italian females aren’t to be messed with! Dom is an uber alpha male and he would like his wife to listen to him without question, yeah right! The characters from book one appear in book two and we get to see more of their lives. A few new characters are introduced, and I have to say I’m liking Carmine! The foundation for book three is laid out in this book and it looks to be interesting. There are some shocking revelations made, which is always good for a plot. In true Tara Oaks fashion, there is plenty of steamy sex. I give this book 4 stars with 3 hands down the pants.

“I didn’t see any possible outcome that didn’t involve him walking away bruised and battered or her walking away knocked up.”

COVER REVEAL: Epic Love Story By Dawn Robertson

Epic Love Story - A Romantic Comedy coming from Dawn Robertson - Summer 2015

My names Cora, and until recently I thought I was living the American dream. Perfect husband. Perfect house. But life isn't a fairytale I learned that the hard way when I discovered my husband's been banging his secretary on a daily basis.
I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have just come out with that, but I really don’t have much of a filter.
The story began when we met in high school, and abruptly ended recently so now I am just trying to put my life back together without him.
I'm finally going to live my dream. Without him but with his money. Because I deserve every dime I get for what he did to me.
I have always wanted to be an author.
In fact, I started writing my very first book about six months ago; a New Adult tale of gut-wrenching love in college. The kind of book that makes you ugly cry and root for the heroine while she does her own soul searching.
Except I just chucked the whole thing in the trash, where it belongs, because the real world isn’t like that. I want to write a real life story. A real life account of searching for love.
So, I am using myself as market research so you could say.
Hold on bitches, because it’s about to be a bumpy ride.

Stripped Bare (formally known as Jack Hammer) By Tabatha Vargo And Melissa Andrea

Title: Stripped Bare
Author: Tabatha Vargo And Melissa Andrea
Genre: Romance
Series: Standalone
Buy Links: Amazon Goodreads
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆++


Blaine Wesley 
If you love something… leave it. Because in the end, love tears you down. 
Those were my exact thoughts the day I walked away from the only girl I ever loved. The boy I used to be is long gone, and now I’m the Jack Hammer. Exotic dancer extraordinaire. The teaser and the pleaser. The paid for penis for play. 
I have to be these things to survive. It’s who I became when I lost her. But now she’s back, and I can’t decide who I want to be more. The Jack Hammer or Blaine Wesley. All I know is she’s foreplay at its finest, and it’s my job to get them wet and ready. 

Chelsey Ford 
Liar. That’s what I called him when he walked out of my life. He left me when I needed him the most, and I’ll never be the same. Losing your first love will turn you into someone bitter. Hateful. Angry. But now he’s back, and he’s determined to torture me. The only problem is, I’m enjoying his form of torture too much. And the hatred for him that holds me together is slowly starting to dissolve. 

Sas' Thoughts:

Do you remember the first time you fell in love? Do you remember when that love broke your heart so bad you thought life as you know it was over? 
Chelsey and Blaine thought exactly that, and as a result made some pretty life altering choices.

"I wanted to kiss her sweet lips and take her away from the party. She was too good for the scene around her. Too good for a lot of things, including me..."
When I first picked up this book I expected a raunchy sexier version of Magic Mike with a bit of a love story in between. 
But it was Just the opposite. I am happy to report this book is so much better then I ever expected. But then i'm a sucker for the destined to be lovers story. And Stripped Bare is Definitely one of the best I've read in a long time.

There shouldn't even be a question if you should or shouldn't read this book..

I loved this book so much I'm giving away 3 ecopy's to the first 3 people who comments on this post.

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author, Melissa Andrea-
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.
Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn't be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)

Struggling attorney Hope Kendall loves her outlaw biker boyfriend Rochlan “Rock” North with all her heart, but the questionable activities his motorcycle club is involved in threaten her legal career. But does she even want this career anymore? 

As a near-death situation makes their professional differences seem insignificant, a cloud descends over their personal relationship’s already unsteady future. 

Even though Hope seems to have finally found her niche in the club as Rock’s ol’ lady, can she mingle in politics with neighboring clubs as well? A trip to the Lost Kings MC downstate charter will put her to the test.

While Rock works hard to give Hope the honesty she craves without betraying his loyalty to his brothers, tension from outside forces threatens to push him to the brink. But it’s the one secret Hope has hidden all along that may finally drive them apart for good.

Amazon US

“Relieved I seemed to have passed some sort of orange juice intelligence test, I returned to my seat.”

 What can I say, I love, Love, LOVE Rock and Hope (Rock more so) and I LOVE the stories author Autumn Jones Lake has written about them. Hope drives me crazy they way she’s always running, but I guess that’s how she deals with her baggage. Not that Rock is perfect, but he seems more level-headed. Of course his alpha male, tattooed, bike riding, bad boy personality makes up for any flaws he may have. Yes, I have a crush on a fictional character, don’t judge me. These two have been through a lot over the years they have known each other. They both carry guilt, but they also have a strong connection to one another and are often times hysterical. I do hope that one day the author will allow these two to have a family, but I don’t think I should hold my breath waiting. I will however, hold my breath waiting for Wrath and Trinity’s story. These two are making me crazy. Apparently Wrath has a big announcement to start off the next book so I’m very excited to see what it is. When I received this book to review it dawned on me that I had not read book 2 or book 2.5, so I sat down on  Monday night and starting reading Corrupting Cinderella (awesome book by the way) and by Thursday afternoon I had finished all three. The fact that I could read over 600 pages in just over 2 days tells me a lot about this author. I give this book 5 stars and 4 hands down the pants.

(Her husband says she shouldn’t be allowed to include gardening in her list of hobbies, because she makes him do all the work, but that’s not relevant.)
