Dangerous Boys and Their Toy by Shayla Black
Police detective Cameron Martinez and bounty hunter R.A. Thorn are on the search for Curtis Lawton. He's the star witness in a major criminal case and Thorn put up the fifty grand to bond him out of jail. Their search leads them to Lawton's secret love nest where they find the lovely Brenna Sheridan. At first, they believe she's his mistress but something about her tells them otherwise, she knows things about him she's not telling.
Thorn thinks the way to get information out of her is to seduce her but he quickly draws Cam in to the scenario; Thorn's wild and Cam's sensitive. Just what Brenna needs to accomplish what she hasn't been able to ever, orgasms. But once they've all shared, they find it difficult to stop themselves; they crave each other. Thorn has always tried to hold himself aloft from everyone and keep them from getting too close. Brenna has never felt loved by anyone after being abandoned as a young child. Now Cam sees more than what either of them thinks and he's the one to help them break through their barriers.
Shayla Black always writes a very hot read. When I started this one, I couldn't put it down. The characters are real. I felt so much for Thorn and what he'd been through since childhood. I wanted to climb right in and take care of him myself. Brenna's loss of family at such a young age, contributed so much of her adulthood and what she needed in life. And Cam, the glue to hold them all together. This is an exceptional story that will get you really hot and bothered, especially if you love a menage!

Bare Devotion by Lacey Thorn (Bare Love series book 4)
Ally Samms comes to the town of Legacy in search of the person who killed her mother and her mother's lover,The Messenger, a serial arsonist/murderer. While at the last house he torched, she thinks if she could get some clues to figure out how to stop him and that is where she meets the fire marshal, Blake Summers. Within an instant, the flames of desire ignite between the two and they begin an affair that threatens to burn them both alive. Could Ally have really found someone that completes her and give her the family she'd always longed for? And what about Blake? He thought he'd never trust another woman again after his ex-wife had nearly destroyed him.
Catherine Daniels has devoted herself to her family all her life especially after the death of her husband two years prior. But she's still a young woman capable of love and she's fallen in love with Roman Davis. Roman's tired of hiding his relationship with Rin and wants it all out in the open. She could lose him if she doesn't come forward and tell her children but if she does would she lose her children instead with the truth?
I love, love, love this series by Lacey Thorn. It has all the elements that make a great romantic suspense story; passion, sexual tension, anticipation. Both Ally and Blake were new characters just introduced in this story and you become captivated with them right off the bat. Returning characters of Catherine and Roman are a delight as well as old favorites from the previous and future books. I really look forward to the next book in this series and kudos to Lacey Thorn for another job well done.

Mistress Christmas by Lorelei James (Wild West Boys series)
Holly North lets her friend talk her into filling in as Mistress Christmas, who's out sick, at her Christmas themed strip club. This is so unlike her, being an accountant, so she dons a mask hoping no one will recognize her. The anonymity of the mask along with the costume provides her with the perfect solution to act out of character.
Nick West, cowboy turned detective, arrives at Sugar Plums strip club hoping to catch Mistress Christmas in the act; the act of drugging and robbing another man just like she had his friend. But when he sees Mistress Christmas, the attraction between them dances out of control and he forgets his main purpose of being there. He returns the next night hoping for a little more Christmas cheer and she lets him in on her Christmas wish, one night of sexual abandon with him. Of course, that's his wish as well.
Their time alone provides them with the perfect opportunity to come forth with their secrets. But they find themselves falling deeper for each other and they both know when the night is over, their emotions will be stripped bare.
Lorelei James does it again, one hot, sexy read. You become entranced with the characters and involved in their lives. Nick is a sexy man I wouldn't throw out of my bed. Accident prone Holly is a mess but with Nick, it doesn't matter. I think he's even more entranced by it. It's nice to catch another glimpse of our beloved McKays through their cousins, the Wests. Keep 'em coming Lorelei.

Boyfriend for Hire by Missy Lyons
What with running the Washington Press newspapers, Angelica Heart didn't have time for a boyfriend and with her mother interfering in her love life, she needed to do something. So why not hire a boyfriend to take home, if only for the Christmas weekend?
Bradley Pennington, shows up on Angelica's doorstep to let her know his brother, would be breaking his date with her. When he arrives, he's got an ulterior motive since he's running for U.S. Congress. He knows who she is but does she know who he is and is that why she was hiring his brother. But when he sees her he decides to play along and get to know her better.
This read went by way too fast. I wanted more and felt there could have been a more indepth story here. Angel and Brad are meant for each other but the relationship starts out on a lie which is never good. If you're looking for a short quick story, this is a good one.
