This review took me a beat to write, because this book was totally unexpected. I felt so many emotions while reading it, frustration, anger, understanding, sadness, turned on, confusion, relief, the list goes on….. I seriously don’t think a book has made me feel that many emotions ever. Yes, it’s crazy!
Layana lives a very privileged life. Her parents have brought her up to be the perfect upper class women, destined to marry a very rich man, and be the perfect trophy wife. But, she has no interest in the people in her lifestyle. She awaits the day she turns 25, so she can get her trust fund and be free.
Brant is a billionaire genius but he wasn’t born into that lifestyle, he worked for it, and he worked hard. He built his first computer at age 12. He is a beautiful man with a secret past.
When they meet at a fundraiser they instantly click. They both don’t do relationships, but after one night that all changes. After time, Brants secrets start to cause trouble for them, so when Layana meets Lee, she can’t resist him.
Lee is the complete opposite of Brant. He is a landscaper. He’s passionate and rough around the edges.
Now, like I said you will feel many emotions. You will be angry with Layana at first, but keep reading! It’s worth the rollercoaster ride of emotions, because there is no cliffhanger!

This book was a pleasant surprise! I’m looking forward to the other Hunter Brothers stories.
This book is about Jess and Lucas mostly, but we get insight into the Hunter family, also. Jess is a 21 year old mother of an adorable five year old son, Dexter. She lives with her sister Chastity. Struggling to make ends meet. She fills in for her sister one night as a waitress for the catering business her sister works for. While wearing a bikini top and hot pants as her uniform, she literally runs into the most beautiful man she has ever seen and spills champagne all over his shirt. He has the most striking blue eyes and he captivates her on the spot. Later she finds out he is the new boss for the company she just started working at and things get complicated. Lucas is the oldest of the Hunter brothers and in charge of taking over the family business. He is rich, gorgeous, sexy, and untouchable.
After hiding behind his bathroom door in his office, one day, she over hears him tell a woman in his office he is going to spank her. This excites her and she can’t stop thinking about it. She starts fantasizing that he would do that to her and dreaming about him at night. She hasn’t been with a man since her son has been born, so she doesn’t have a lot of experience. Lucas Hunter on the other hand is a dominant and women throw themselves at him. But, he only has subs not girlfriends and usually no longer than a week or two. But, Jess has him changing his rules.
The storyline is awesome, I really fell in love with the characters. Not just Jess and Lucas, but the other characters in the story as well. The bond between sisters, Jess and Chastity, and of course little Dex was so adorable. Charlie one of the younger brothers of Lucas is definitely another hottie that we hear the most about.
The sex was hot and I really loved the connection between Lucas and Jess. There is some BDSM play. It was erotic and romantic and I love that. I especially loved the little POV of Lucas at the end. I will definitely read more from this Author! Roman the mysterious Hunter brother is next in the series….

I blinked and it’s flown by. Five books. Two signings. No sleep.
I’d planned to do a short blogpost to celebrate one year of pressing that alluring publish button. I’d planned on celebrating with a brief ‘Happy Release Birthday’ with a few giveaways and updates—that in itself would’ve been more than enough reward to look back and reflect on what the past year has meant to me and how amazed, humbled, and ecstatic I am. But the icing on this fabulous cake that has become my life was Debt Inheritance hit #84 on the USA Today and #24 on the NYT Bestseller lists. On the very same day that I pressed publish a year ago. Surreal? Yep!!!
Now, I find my small post isn’t enough to celebrate such a monumental achievement or to put into words how blown away I am. So, I’m going to…

Warning: This book is very DARK! There is violence and crude behavior. This book may be offensive to some readers! Only ADULTS 18+ should read this book!
It’s so hard to review this book! My expectations were so high before reading this, maybe that’s why I feel a little disappointed? Don’t get me wrong, I still liked this story and I will definitely still be reading the series. And, Pepper Winters still amazes me how she writes something so dark and cruel, but makes me beg for more. It’s crazy, because although I like dark erotica/romance, there has to be that romance there for me somewhere, and she can write a book like this, with no romance, and I want more! As I said, there is no romance in this first installment, not even a little. You can feel that there is a chance for romance in the future, just below the surface, and I think that is what is holding me captive, just like Nila.
Nila Weaver is a sheltered 24 year old women, she has only worked as a famous clothing designer, with no social life other than her father and twin brother. She is just finishing up one of her most successful run way shows in Milan when the handsome stranger, Jethro Hawk comes to extract his family’s debt inheritance, Nila. She is shocked that her father is encouraging her to go out with Jethro, because he never wants her to date. Nila is so starved for the human contact only a male can offer that she goes willingly, even though something in the back of her mind screams that this isn’t normal. And, that is when it all begins. This beautiful, well mannered, well dressed looking gentleman, is far from any of those things on the inside. He is cruel, vicious, and evil and his family isn’t any better, if not worse. And, Nila’s world changes for the worst, but will Nila break through in the next installments?

This story was short but definitely sexy. The storyline was captivating and Gabriel is to die for. The book I read before this one was very dark and lacked romance, so this book was just want I needed after that. It was a nice little escape.
This story is about a woman named Calista with special powers, and Gabriel the Master vampire. Calista doesn’t like vampires even though she lusts after them. Human men don’t get her off, but when she meets Gabriel he more than turns her on. She has never felt this way around any vampire. She was only meant to do a favor for him, but they both can’t stay away from each other.
I will definitely read more books from this Author. What a lovely little surprise this book was!
COMMITTED: Drug of Desire
Written by Sidney Bristol
Published by Loveswept
August 12, 2014
In this erotic tale of sensuality and suspense, Sidney Bristol proves that desire can be the most dangerous drug of all.
DEA Special Agent Damien Moana works hard and plays even harder. But while indulging in forbidden temptations at a private BDSM retreat, the unexpected happens: He falls under a stranger’s spell. This woman drives Damien to distraction, pushing him to the sweet boundary between pain and pleasure. When duty interrupts their heated encounter, his focus turns to catching a criminal . . . but his head is still with the seductress who ignites his deepest desires. Now Damien must choose between closing the case of his career and losing the woman of his dreams.
Poppy Mercer can’t forget the night she spent with her mystery lover. When chance brings them back together, she seizes the opportunity to again feel his masterful hands on her body. Poppy is a switch who delights in dominating a powerful man . . . and submitting to the ecstasy of his control. Outside the bedroom, however, she questions her place in Damien’s world. His obsession with hunting a ruthless drug lord puts Poppy in the line of fire. And though Damien might be able to save her from danger, salvaging what’s left of her trust is another matter.
Committed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Poppy is visiting a BDSM retreat hoping to find something new and different, but she is a switch, and it’s a lot harder to find someone to play with when you are a switch. The dominant men don’t like to give up control, and she isn’t a domme, so she isn’t having very much fun. Until Damien the Dom, finds her in the library all alone. He sees this beautiful blonde and he can’t walk away. So, they have a night neither of them will ever forget. He unfortunately has to leave right before giving her aftercare, due to being called in for a case he has been waiting to get his hands on for a very long time. He is a DEA detective. They part ways but he can’t stop thinking about Poppy, even though he has a dangerous case going on. He tries to find her and make it up to her in many sensual and loveable ways, but will his dangerous profession tear them apart? There is a lot of action and suspense, a long with some hot BDSM scenes in this book.
