Review of Enduring Service by Regina Morris


Colony Agent Sulie Metcalf, the President’s private physician, has been in love with the same human man for nearly thirty years. She refuses to allow herself the joy of true love because her feelings are unrequited by her human boss, Jonathan Dixon. As Dixon’s retirement looms near, and his memories of Sulie and the last thirty years of his life are about to be erased, does she confront her fear of intimacy and take a leap of faith before it’s too late? 

Dixon has decided to retire and enjoy what time he has left. When Sulie is kidnapped during a medical emergency, Dixon realizes that retirement means giving up everything, and everyone, he’s known for the last three decades. Will he risk his life, and his heart, to save her?

Tonya's Review  
(This is the 3rd book in The Colony series)

This is Sulie's story and it's a great read. Sulie is Raymond's sister, and also the personal doctor to the President because of her unique ability. She can tell all about your health by just a touch or taste of your blood. She has been in love with Dixon for a very long time, but has always been too scared to tell him, because she doesn't think that he loves her back. And she wouldn't want to ruin that friendship.

Time is running out though. Dixon was the human director for The Colony, but he is retiring soon. With retirement comes a complete mind wipe. He will not remember any of them afterwards, including Sulie. He really doesn't want that to happen, but he has been denied becoming a vampire. He also has never told Sulie how he feels. 

This book has some great action in it with Sulie being kidnapped. Vampires from the past come out and some things that were thought to be the truth, they learn aren't even close. 

I really enjoyed the relationship that Sulie and Dixon have. I wanted to slap them both for being to chicken to tell each other how they felt. Definitely a series I will keep reading.

Review of Beautiful Lies by Gina Whitney


Lust, Love, and Letting Go

Cameron Sterling has sworn off women. Enigmatic and moody, all he cares about is his career…until he meets Lilly Amsel. A honey-haired fashion model with a killer body, she knocks him right off the fast track. Their undeniable physical attraction is white hot, their desire for one another an unstoppable force of nature.

They unleash years of pent-up carnal frustration on one another, leading to some mind-blowing sex. It also brings something unexpected into their lives: love with no limitations. But can their relationship survive their past demons? Cam has been alone for so long, he’s forgotten how to open his heart. Lilly keeps memories of her abusive childhood at bay with an addiction to prescription meds.

And then there’s the big problem: Lilly is already involved with a wealthy, powerful older man who controls her emotionally and financially and has no desire to share her. When he finds out about her trysts with another man, he deploys his thugs, sending Cam and Lilly on the run, fighting for their lives—and their love.

My Review written by Natalie Idrogo


Cameron Sterling is not only a lawyer, but one sexy man, made of the most beautiful flesh and blood there is.

Lilly Amsel is a gorgeous model and has come from a very harsh past that NO one deserves. Lilly wants more out of life, but seems to be stuck in an endless barrage of evil men.

Sig Krok, is a very successful businessman in the fashion industry. This man is also very ugly, very nasty and has all of his sick little secrets locked away in dirty little closet. Sig is a very repulsive and abusive human being.

Cam's mission in life has been to make partner in the law firm he works for. This firm isn't exactly on the up and up, but Cam will do what he needs to do to reach his goal. It just so happens that his boss involves him with Sig Krok's case. Working this case will surely push him to the top. Little does Cam know while attending the fancy dinner he will set his eyes up on the beautiful Lilly Amsel. He is in awe of her beauty and feels an instantaneous pull to her. The only problem is.... she is the girlfriend of Sig.

These two can not fight this attraction and act upon their deepest desires of passion and hot, hot sex. Once this duo is found out, they are thrown into a world of danger, threats and they must do what they have to..... just to survive!

What Lilly has to endure while with Sig is disgusting. His threats and physical actions made me want to see everything he has coming to him times ten! Cam is so strong minded, he goes after the information he needs to hopefully expose Sig for the vile creature that he is.... Will it be enough to take Sig down so that Cam and Lilly can have a beautiful chance at a wonderful life or will it just turn out to be a bunch of BEAUTIFUL LIES?

I was taken on a fun and sexy thrill ride!! This book had all of the ins and outs of a good movie that seriously needs to be a movie! Gina Whitney's description of these two characters is strong and very vivid. You fall for Cam in an instant heartbeat. This is a must read..... It will leave you breathless.... longing for more and most of all in need of a happy ending for these two beautiful souls.

****I was super excited to get to beta this for Cassy****

This is a MUST read book! I absolutely loved it. It wasn't my normal read, but boy was I drawn to the story from the very beginning and had the hardest time putting it down until I was done! The author is simply brilliant! She kept me on the edge of my seat. She has such detail that made the book seem real, the characters seem real, I felt for her characters, hell I even felt like I was apart of the story!

I rate this book  5 stars. It's the first book in this series and is not a stand alone.

All Ashley Carter wanted was to have what every woman wanted, a husband, kids, to be married and have a great career. She married her high school sweetheart and they moved to Chicago so he could pursue his dream career as an attorney. Ashley puts her carrier dreams on hold to be a loving and supportive wife, only to walk in on him an another woman. Devastated, Ashley is determined to pick herself up and move forward with her life and do what she wants and follow her dreams. That was until Ashley met Dominic Michaels.

Dominic is the Club Owner of several BDSM Night Clubs called The Celtic Knot. He demonstrates control and power over not only his life but his woman too. Dominic suffered though a very traumatic experience at a really young age, which has his stopping any woman from getting to close to his heart... That was until he met Ashley Carter. Will Dominic let her get close enough? Will Ashley be the one to break his walls down? ***** This book is intended for Mature audiences ONLY******

While deployed overseas, his mission classified, the heartfelt letters Maximus writes are the only bits of communication Liberty receives during the year he is away. Her memories of him, along with a box full of letters, become her most prized possessions—that and the life growing inside her.

It’s not until communication stops, and the scheduled return of her Army hero comes and goes, that Libby begins to freak out. Her worry for his welfare, along with concern over her current situation, wreaks havoc on her once-solid nerves.

While she’s waiting for his return with bated breath, she clings to hope and remembers the words he once wrote: “A soldier doesn't fight because he hates what is in front of him. A soldier fights because he loves what he left behind.” The infamous quote is a constant reminder of why he chooses to fight: For Liberty.

Volunteering for the local animal shelter, and helping with their holiday fundraisers, was how I chose to spend my birthday that year. The K9 kissing booth was a huge success. All the local pet lovers lined up to pay for smooches with the four-legged fur friends.

When I saw him standing in line, my heart stopped momentarily. Two years older than I was, Maximus Becker was the boy I drooled over during my freshman and sophomore years of high school. Of course, in high school, two years was quite an age gap, and I was a child in his eyes. Other than his occasional visits home, I hadn’t seen him since he’d graduated six years ago and enlisted into the Army.

His round, boyish face was now strong and covered in a dusting of sexy scruff. It was obvious the military kept him in great shape, with his built physique and powerful demeanor. He was no longer the boy I knew in high school. His tall stature and confident stance was nothing short of pure, masculine strength.

Looking back, it seemed a bit petty that I frantically searched for another volunteer to take my post. My job was to collect the money for the kissing booth, and I couldn’t just bail. But I was also sure as shit I’d end up making a fool of myself in front of this gorgeous man who probably still didn’t even know I existed.

Realizing there was no one around to relieve me of this torture, I blew a stray lock of hair out of my eyes with a puff of breath and attempted to put on my best game face—determined to keep my cool. He was next in line.

Smiling kindly at the old lady in front of him, I stuffed her dollar in the money bag and kept my head down, worried my words would stumble if I looked into his eyes. Call me crazy, but those stupid, teenage fluttery feelings took over my stomach at the mere closeness of him. I probably looked weak and scared—words usually never used to describe me.

“Well hello, Libby,” a warm, raspy voice said. The fact he spoke my name actually gave me strength to be the girl I knew was hiding inside me somewhere.

Raising my head and meeting his beautiful, hazel eyes, I smiled. “Max. Haven’t seen you around in a while. How the hell are ya?” I was beyond grateful my voice didn’t crack when his name spilled from my lips.

“Doin’ good. Just moved back to town now that I’m stationed at the base nearby.” His eyes roamed down my body and back up to meet my eyes. “Looks to me like I’ve missed a lot while I was gone.” The smile he so sinfully wore on his face made my insides melt like a tween at a One Direction concert. The fact one man could make me feel that way was both exciting and embarrassing.

And again, I was speechless. Was he paying me a compliment? My brain couldn’t seem to comprehend what was happening, so I just stood there and grinned like a damn fool.

Leaning toward me, he crooked his finger and signaled for me to come closer. My heart was nearly leaping from my chest with the thought of him so near. He smelled good too. I had to rein in all the self-control I could muster in order to keep from blatantly sniffing him.

With his warm breath feathering over my ear, he said, “So, I’m a little embarrassed. I got in this line thinking I was lining up for a kiss with—”

“We don’t have all day,” a crabby woman behind Max said, cutting off his words. If I weren’t representing the animal shelter, I would have told the lady to fuck off.

Smiling kindly, I held out my hand for his donation and said, “You ready to get your mac on with a basset hound?”

Shaking his head comically, he let out a light chuckle and held up a twenty between his fingers. His instruction for me to keep the change startled me a bit. We’d had several people give us an extra dollar or two toward the fundraising efforts, but no one had offered quite so much.

Stepping over to the line of dogs, he looked back in my direction and gave me a wink before allowing Henry to slobber all over his cheek.

I couldn’t contain my laughter as I watched him wipe his face on his sleeve.
