Our Review:
Reviewed by Shirley ~ 5 stars

I have just read the much eagerly awaited book 7 of this brilliant series and what can I say other than it is just as outstanding as all the others.

In this book it has a gripping and very sensual and erotic story that grabs you from the first page. The two main characters Jax Chandler, Alpha to the Arestis Wolves and Katrina Livingston the sister of another alpha takes you through a journey of fated mates being kept apart by an evil enemy. But these two did not have Alpha blood in them for nothing, they fought tooth and claw against all the odds.

The story starts with the kidnapping of Jax and then it shows after being reunited with Katrina who he has always thought as his mate, the fight on their hands to put things right for Katrina, against everything that has been done to her in the last three years.

On this journey you read of their blistering attraction for one another and how Jax could not help himself when Katrina was around him

"Ah, yes." Katrina's energy surged. As his mouth went to her other breast, her pussy ached with need. So long she'd waited for his touch, and now she was certain she'd never be able to leave him.

These two are strong but Jax has the edge in being one very strong Alpha and you read how he gets Katrina to submit to him, but in the most erotic way possible, but it does not stop Katrina from showing Jax that the Alpha blood that runs through her does not mean she would submit entirely. She knew what she wanted and was not afraid to take the lead

“Her fangs distended, and like lightening she struck, her teeth slicing into his shoulder. She heard a faint cry as his powerful blood rushed down her throat. Before she knew what was happening, he'd broken free of his leather bonds and flipped her onto her back. "Forever," he repeated as he pounded into her. "Your mine. Forever."

and we must not forget the very sexy threesome which includes Jake, very hot.

I loved this book, it had a story that drew you right in from the get go with lots of very sexy loving. A book I could not put down. I recommend everyone to read and if you haven't read any of this series yet, do so, you won’t be disappointed.

Review ~ Suit (the twin duo #1) & Slut (the twin duo #2) by Jettie Woodruff

Book Description:

When my sister, Isabelle showed up, just ahead of a tropical storm, nostalgia and a need to reconnect took us on a ride…directly into the eye of a different kind of disaster. I woke from a coma unaware that I even had a twin and married to a man with two little girls. Although I fell madly in love with the children that I didn’t remember, I didn’t feel like I belonged with Paxton Pierce. I couldn’t be who he wanted me to be no matter how hard I tried. But things aren’t always as they seem. I fought my own demons, trying not to be the submissive he required me to be, yet I craved it like a drug. I wanted him.

Once upon a time I was an identical twin.
And then I wasn’t.

Buy Links ~ Suit (Book One):

Book Description:

I thought losing my memory was the worst thing in the world. Forgetting who you are, and where you came from was like driving on a road with only right turns. All leading in the same direction. A direction I wanted to avoid, a dark tunnel that I had to enter if I ever wanted answers.

Losing my memory wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Learning, who I was, and the secrets I had kept was way worse. The unbearable pull and the passion we shared, mixed with the past that I didn’t want to remember, created a whole new storm. The perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. Stupid little fish.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna
Suit (Book One) ~ 4.5 stars
Slut (Book Two) ~ 4 stars

 “I was always the quiet one, the one who followed suit, doing what others told me to do.”

This was one of those series that I knew I needed to read in one hit, I had heard the whispers on the grapevine and I was glad that I had decided to read them together. The first book had me on the edge of my seat frantically page turning. What a mind f@@k!! This book had my head all over the place but in a really good way. An intricate storyline that will have you reading between the lines, assuming and then unassuming. Just when you think you know what is going on it isn’t and you are back to where you started…knowing nothing at all.

“I was the missing link, the broken one that didn’t fit anymore.”

I have to admit that in the beginning Paxton was a tough cookie to like, he came across as an obnoxious asshole, dominating, possessive and a touch sadistic. He lacked emotion and empathy, he was an empty vessel. But, and this is a huge BUT, I knew that there must have been a different side to him.

“You have everything to suit your needs, and I have you. My slut, to suit mine.”

Paxton was an amazing father and when you saw him with his kids you just knew that there was a different man underneath the charade. Having had the benefit of reading book two as well I am glad that I was proven correct, but by the end of book two (Slut) I adored him, despite his domineering ways.

Gabriella was Paxton’s wife and after a car accident she wakes up with amnesia. She doesn’t recognise her husband or her children and everything around her is alien and confusing. Gabriella struggles to fit back into her old life, especially with regards to Paxton and his emotionless ways. Everything seems to be a charade and she just wants to be Gabriella, but is the Gabriella that woke up the same Gabriella before the accident?

“I loved him, and I loved our magic. Even if it was all messed up. It was out and nothing could change that, until it could.”

With secrets and lies and little flickers of recollection slowly but surely coming through vivid dreams Gabriella thinks that she is slowly piecing together her life before and leading up to the accident that claimed her memory…or is it? Is everything as it seems?

“No, tell me truth. I’ve heard enough lies for a lifetime.”

Slut was not as intense as book one, Suit. Slut is what I call a book of revelations. A book where the past is finally revealed piece by little piece and secrets and truths are painfully divulged. Everything you thought you knew you don’t and what you thought was real was and wasn’t.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.”

I loved how the past was revealed, I loved the transformation of Paxton and how we finally got to see the real him. For a man that I had loathed in the beginning I was glad my gut instinct had not let me down. He really puts himself out there in this book and I could understand why he was his emotionless self in Suit.

“We’re the perfect storm of two kinds of crazy.”

This was a book of second chances, a redo, how not to repeat the mistakes of the past when you are given the chance of a clean slate and a fresh future. I loved it.

“…I’m so stoked to make new memories.”
“I promise to make them better than the ones you forgot.”

I understand a Novella will be released in December. For this I am thankful, I still have a few questions that I hope will get answered…I cannot wait!!

Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway ~ Vegas Love by Jillian Dodd

Meet Ashlyn & Cash in VEGAS LOVE!

Jillian Dodd's newest SEXY contemporary romance releasing November 24th!

Book Description:

Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at a friend’s wedding. She’s planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married.

Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple: Keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her.

Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding.

Will this one night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love?

She pulls me into a limo. “Where are we going?” I ask. Not that I care. At this point, I’d go just about anywhere with this girl. She’s amazing. And I don’t just mean the sex—which was practically mind-blowing. She’s gorgeous and funny as shit.
“I’m surprised you’d want to go there after—” She grabs my lips in her fingertips and shuts them, giving me fish lips.
“Rule number one,” she says. “No talking about the past. Other than I’m going to say that the last two times I’ve been in Vegas have been big disappointments. Give me a minute. I need to make a call.”
“Who are you calling?”
“Carter Crawford. He doesn’t know it yet, but we’re going to borrow his plane. I happen to know he’s not leaving here until tomorrow afternoon. Do you know him?”
“The best man?” I ask. I consider telling her that I know Carter quite well, since he’s my brother, but I don’t. She wants a no-names-kind-of night. Which is funny considering everyone knows the actress Ashlyn Roberts, who’s well-known for her blockbuster movie roles, red carpet antics, and bubbly personality.
“After the breakup with Luke and before I started dating Zach, Carter took me to Vegas,” she says, causing me to tense up. Just the thought of her fucking anyone other than me—particularly my brother—threatens to rip me apart. How can I possibly feel so crazy jealous over her already? It was just sex. Wasn’t it? “I thought our trip would be romantic with a whole lot of hot and sweaty, you know, but nothing happened between us. His brother, Cade, is my agent, and he was just trying to cheer me up.”
I breathe easier, then let my lips graze down her neck. “If hot, sweaty, romantic Vegas is what you want, Hotass. It’s what you’ll get.”
“I need a wig though.”
“So no one recognizes me, silly. I have a fake ID. Sometimes, I just want to go out without it being a scene. Tonight is one of those nights.”
“I bet we can find you a wig in Vegas.”
“Ha, you’re right,” she says as I pull her on my lap and kiss her again.

We fuck on the plane.
Drink some more.

When we land in Vegas, we go directly to a store where she sends me in to buy a wig.
“What kind?” I ask.
“Long and blond.”
“Hot,” I say.
“While you do that, I’ll get us set up in a hotel.”
When I get back in the town car, she tells the driver which hotel to take us to.
“I’ve never stayed here before,” she says, pulling on the wig. “You go get the key, okay? I told them your name was Harry Tripping and not to ask for ID.”
“That’s funny.”We ride the elevator to one of the upper floors and enter a sprawling suite. “Very nice. You have good taste.”
“Only the best for our wild one-night stand.”
A butler appears out of nowhere. “Anything you need?”
“Nothing he can’t give me,” she says, pulling on my tie and giving me a naughty grin.
I send the butler away then lead her over to the windows. “Look at this view.”
“Ohmigawd! Look! The Bellagio fountains are starting!” She leans against the glass and looks down. “Wow. This is kinda trippy.”
I push my hips into her ass, somehow ready for round—hell, I lost count. Two times at the wedding, a blow job in the limo, joined the mile high club twice, so round—six. Doesn’t matter though, my Johnson is raring to go. I wrap my arms around her waist, kiss her neck, and finger her while she watches the fountains rise. She reaches back and slides her hand down my pants.
“You’re hard again,” she says, seemingly surprised.
“You turn me on,” I whisper.
“Do me right here. I feel like I should say your name—but this is a still a no-names-kind-of night, right?”
“That’s what you wanted. I’m still calling you Hotass because, you”—I lift her skirt, slide off her panties, and slap her naked butt—“have a very hot ass.”
“Oh!” she says when I spank her. She guides me into her and as I start thrusting, she bends over more—putting her arms out and her hands flat against the glass.
“This is like a fantasy,” she says, moving against me in time with the fountains. “Do you think when they do the big finale you can come?”
“I’d rather make you come.”
“Spank me again, then.”
I pull back, but not out, giving myself just enough space to smack her ass before plunging deep inside her.
“Oh, god! Do it harder! Oh, fuck, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes!”
And just before the fountains stop, she collapses against the window.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“I Vegas love you.”

Jillian Dodd always delivers a cute romantic read, that is sweet but extremely entertaining and Vegas Love is no different. With fantastic characters, explosive chemistry and the glitz and glamour that she has made her own Jillian Dodd delivers a fairy-tale romance that will leave you smiling from ear to ear with a warm glow in your heart.

Ashlyn was a Hollywood actress who was highly successful and had jumped from meaningless relationship to meaningless relationship. The only meaning in said relationships was what her persona and contacts could bring to the male specimen on her arm. She was used over and over again and the magic of the fairy-tale romance was quickly losing its appeal, she just wanted to be loved and be in love. Men had finally left her a little jaded so for now she was going to enjoy herself…starting at her friend’s wedding.

“…just because I look perfect on the big screen, doesn’t mean I’m perfect in real life. The makeup and lighting hide all my cracks.”

Cash was an attorney who was relocating from Seattle to work with his brother. He was drop dead gorgeous, confident, cocky a bit of a joker but extremely loveable.  He is due to attend the same wedding but his flight comes in late and he misses the majority of it. As he is walking in he sees Ashlyn who was moping in her own pity party with a bottle of champagne. They chat, have a laugh and decide to be spontaneous and have a night of fun…Vegas!! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…until it doesn’t.

“You know, I think you’ve been smoothing out my edges since I met you.”

With a night of fun and frolics and a wedding these two really hit it off, but will they get the quickie divorce they promised or will their undeniable attraction and chemistry win through? With Hollywood glitz and glamour and sharks that would stab you in the back if it made some $$ the pitfalls of Hollywood are shown in all its technicolour glory.

“They want to see me happy, and you, Hotass, make me happy.”

This book had me in hysterics as well as swooning. Jillian Dodd delivers a fun read that was quick, easy and un-put-down-able. With some fantastic side characters that I would love to learn more about the Crawford brothers have certainly made an impact. While this book was insta-love it was by no means irritating, these two took the time to get to know one another and their relationship blossomed before your eyes. Once again, another fun, super swoony read from Jillian Dodd.

My doorbell rang.


I looked at the clock and realized it was already 7:30.

So that meant it was Beckett on the other side of the door.


I looked down at my half-naked body.


And then I started freaking out.

“I’ll be right there!” I yelled.

Should I let him in?

But I was practically naked!

I couldn’t let him see me like this!

Maybe I should own it. Shake my hips and let him get a look at the goods.
Like that would ever happen.

Crap, what was I going to wear?

I grabbed a pair of jeans from my floor and wiggled them on, not really paying attention to which ones they were.

I reached into my closet and pulled the closest shirt off the rack. I tied my hair into a ponytail and slipped on a comfortable pair of ballet flats.

I hoped Beckett hadn’t planned on five-star dining because I was dressed more for a McDonalds milkshake before hanging with the bowling league.

“Sorry,” I said, out of breath, opening the door and letting Beckett inside.

“I was starting to think I needed to break in and make sure you hadn’t gotten stuck in the toilet or something.” Beckett looked damn near perfect in a dark pair of jeans and button-up blue shirt the same color as his eyes.

He had even gotten a haircut. Way to make me feel like a total underachiever in the getting ready department, buddy.

“Looks like you cut yourself,” I said, indicating the piece of toilet paper stuck to his chin.

“Fuck. I forgot about that,” he muttered, pulling it off, looking embarrassed.

“You should have left it there. It’s cute,” I teased, putting on my black wool coat.

“You ready?” he asked.

“As I’ll ever be.” I gave him a wide smile and he laughed.

“I’m not taking you to your death by firing squad. You could act a bit more excited.”

I jumped up and down, clapping my hands together. “OMG, Beck! I can’t wait!” I gasped.

“Is that better?” I asked, closing my apartment door behind me and locking it.

“Much.” Beckett leaned down and I swear he was checking out my ass.

“Excuse me, but what in the hell are you doing?” I demanded.

“Are you aware that the Cheshire cat is on your right butt cheek?”

I craned my body to get a look at what he was talking about. And sure enough, there was a bright purple patch with the damn Cheshire cat on my derriere.

“I must have picked up the wrong jeans,” I groaned. These were my hanging-out-doing-laundry jeans. Not meant to be seen by anyone but myself and the cat.

“I was in a rush. I couldn’t figure out what to wear. It was stressful,” I tried to explain, pulling my coat down over my feline-covered bum.

“The last thing I want is to stress you out, Cor-Cor.”

I smacked his arm. “I thought I warned you about using that damn nickname,” I threatened.

“I show up with toilet paper stuck to my face and you have a cat on your butt. I think we make a pretty awesome pair,” Beckett snickered, unlocking his car.
