Book Description:

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him. 

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke. 

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue. 

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties. 


Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

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

 
“I think I was made to love you.”


Prescott Lane delivers a hilarious and extremely cute read with Toying with Her. This book contained one of the most hilarious lines I have ever read, I had tears rolling down my face and got a stitch. I loved the Southern sayings, I loved Momma with a passion and I fell in love with our hero and heroine. The South’s small towns are well known for being stuck in the dark ages, where the bible is the be all and end all, small minds are rife and pack mentality is ever present and our heroine’s home town was no different.


“Sterling…You deal with clits, not c*nts. Let’s go.”


On the outside Sterling had everything, she had her own business, she was a multi-millionaire, she had fame, a life that most would be enviable of, but at the end of the day her material wealth meant nothing. Sterling was incredibly lonely, she invented the most famous dildo, men either wanted her money or were emasculated by it, some were intimidated by what she invented and the fact that they could never compare. No matter what, she had no success with the opposite sex. Sterling’s job had even alienated her from her home town. Anyone who got close, got hurt and so Sterling stayed alone.


“Put wishes in one hand and shit in the other, and see which one fills up first.”


Only one man had made Sterling feel anything, he was her best friend, her first and the only orgasm she had ever had without using one of her own inventions. Sterling graded all men against him and none stood a chance, going back to her home town would put them on a collision course, but a summer spent at home is just what the doctor ordered.


“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” ~ Emily Bronte


Rorke was simply adorable, he has only ever loved one woman…Sterling, she was his first, she was his best friend and no woman had ever compared. Rorke wasn’t perfect, but he was honest and relatable. Rorke was your typical southern man with an ego the size of Texas, where a man is the provider and he looks after his woman. However, when these two come face to face once again all those old feelings come flooding back and while many years have passed that chemistry hasn’t forgotten.


“My dad said love has to be stubborn. Love makes us drunk. Love makes us stupid. Love makes the world go round.”


A story of second chances, of compromise, of adjustment. It was cute, it was hot, it was hilarious, it was swoony, it was romantic, I cried tears of laughter and tears of sadness but most of all it was full of love. Absolutely loved it, another winner from Prescott Lane.


“You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”


Excerpt: 

I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now. We don’t even have to move from this spot. I can take her right up against the door. My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach. The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her. She grinds right back. “Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her. We never just had a kiss. We went from kissing to sex in the same breath. And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer. I want that more. I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling. I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me. I’m going to make it damn near impossible. Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck. Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly. She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment. “Rorke,” she begs breathlessly. I know she’s used to being in control. Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be. Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure. But that ends right now. When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it. When you want a kiss, I’m your man. You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

“When I think about how pure she is, it only reminds me how dirty I am.”


EK Blair shows another side to her writing with Crave. This was so not what I was expecting. EK Blair to me, is dark, a little taboo, with erotic adults who like to explore their sexual side. Crave is about young adults (although this is NOT a YA book) as EK Blair still regales us with her trademark sex scenes. Crave was emotional, of course a little screwed up, I mean EK has to show her face somewhere, but it explores a side to teenagers that is not often explored in books.


“I don’t ever want you to feel insecure with me, because you are exactly what I want. Because when you touch me, it means so much more that what anyone else could ever give me…”


Adaline is the new girl in town, relocating due to her mother’s work. Starting a new school near the end of the school year is always difficult. Cliques are already in place and being in a private school, social tiers are prevalent, a hierarchy of sorts and a newcomer is never welcome. Ady falls into friendship with one of the popular boys and soon finds herself attracted to one of his quiet, unassuming friends. Ady, albeit from an affluent family had her own issues. Abandonment issues were at the top of them. Having been rejected by her father after once being the apple of his eye has been hard for her take and understand, and now him having a new family only exacerbates the chasm that has already formed.


“The two of us stare into each other’s brokenness, and I swear I can feel him breathing through the holes of my wounds when he begs…”


Kason is the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, only attending school due to some strings pulled and a scholarship. Kason is extremely intelligent and sees this opportunity as his ticket out of poverty. Kason is a hard worker, putting in all the hours to earn enough money to then fund university. Kason was intriguing from the get go, there was something about him that you knew made him vulnerable and it was this vulnerability that made the reader want to protect him at all costs.


“It wasn’t until Adaline came into the mix that I started to see how corrosive this craving was. It’s made me lose the one thing I never wanted to lose.”


There is a reason that this synopsis is really vague and as such, my review, too, will be vague. The author has cleverly concealed the true direction of this book and that is something I want to preserve as the journey that these characters take is one you need to experience as the author intended. As ever with an EK Blair read this book is chock full of emotion, but of a totally different kind to her norm. It is this emotion and intense character connection that makes you experience the highs and lows, you run the gamut of emotions with these characters and I often found myself trying to relate their journey to the experiences that I went through in my mid to late teens too. I felt everything that these two went through, their pain, their guilt, their insecurities, their vulnerabilities, their connection, their love, but most of all, I believed in them as a couple.


“She understands me when I don’t even understand myself. She’s forgiving when I refuse to forgive the things I’ve done. And she gives me hope in the eye of hopelessness.”


I adored every single character in this book. EK Blair really plays her trump card by delivering real, relatable characters that are fun to be around and despite their wealth have that air of normality. The dialogue and the banter between them was perfect, suited their age and their situation. When this author writes her more adult books I find myself totally consumed by her words, even if I do have to look a few up in a dictionary. With Crave, the prose was tailored to the age of her characters while still retaining the trademark EK Blair style.


“My body hunches over, and I cry because the one man who was never supposed to break my heart is the man who completely shattered it.”


I cannot wait for the concluding part, seriously, EK Blair knows how to get her hooks into you and leave you hanging for the next morsel she dares to chuck your way. These characters literally entrench themselves into your heart and Kason, in particular, was a character where my mother bear instincts went into overdrive. I am desperate for the next one, it seriously cannot come quick enough. Fabulous job EK Blair.

Friday Frights ~ PNR Review ~ The Four Horsemen: Legacy (Four Horsemen #1) by LJ Swallow


Book Description:

What's worse than being pursued by the Four Horsemen?
Discovering you're the Fifth.

Verity Jameson's day switches from mundane to disastrous when she runs down a stranger with her car. Fortunately for Vee, she can't kill Death.

Death, who just happens to be one of the Four Horsemen, and he's looking for her.

The Four Horsemen spend life preventing the end of the world, not bringing on an apocalypse. As gatekeepers of the portals which exist between the human world and other realms, the team fight to keep the portals closed and the supernatural forces under control. Without their fifth member, the Four Horsemen are losing the battle.

Now they've found Verity and what they tell her goes far beyond the conspiracy theories Vee spends her free time investigating.

A new life with four dark, sexy and dangerous men fighting demons, vampires and fae? Not what Vee had planned, but a hell of a lot more interesting than her boring job in tech support.

So what happens when the unbreakable bond of the Five takes control in a way none of them expected?


The Four Horsemen: Legacy is the first book in an exciting new paranormal REVERSE HAREM series from USA Today bestselling author, LJ Swallow. 

*This book is written in British English*

Our Review:

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 4.5 stars

I was intrigued by the concept that the Four Horsemen would not be here to bring on the apocalypse but in truth they were here to control supernatural forces from causing havoc on the human world. I must admit this story really works and when you throw in a fifth Horseman and that person is in actual fact a woman. Wow. I loved it.

The characters are brilliant. Four handsome, sexy men. Death, Famine, Pestilence and War. They have all been brought into the 21st century. I loved how now Pestilence is using his power not on people but causing viruses on the internet against the bad guys. Superb.

The story evolves from the men first meeting with Verity and to getting her to accept who she actually is. Verity is a bit wary with what the men are telling her but hey, having these four gorgeous men around making her libido soar can’t be all bad.

With the story having a bit of forbidden romance thrown into the mix makes this one very enjoyable which I highly recommend for anyone to read.

Ms Swallow I really enjoyed your book and have already put in my order for Book 2. Brilliant.
