Book Blitz: Wild Man by Sherilee Gray – A Hot Erotica Romance

Book Blitz: Wild Man by Sherilee Gray – A Hot Erotica Romance

Time to warm up with a hot erotica romance – introducing Wild Man by Sherilee Gray – Enjoy the excerpt below!

Available on Amazon

Warning: The excerpt and the book are not clean – far from it, so proceed with caution! Don’t tell me, I did not warn you!



Title: Wild Man
Author: Sherilee Gray
Series : (The Smith Brothers #2)
Publication date: November 28th, 2017
Genres: Erotica, Romance

The first time I saw Beau Smith’s face, I fell for him…hard. There’s just a few tiny problems. He lives wild. I’ve never left the city. He wants a wife who can handle his harsh world. I just want him.

He’s been burnt in the past, and he won’t let me in easily, but there’s no denying the spark between us, so intense it could set the woods on fire. And with every hot and dirty night we spend together, I can feel his walls crumbling.

But once he realizes I’m not what he signed up for, that I lied to him about who I am—will he still want me, or will I lose my wild man forever?

Warning: The Smith Brothers are not just identical twins, they’re big, burly, bearded, insanely hot mountain men. They’re also sweet, and very, very dirty. Did I mention dirty?

EXCERPT:

She stepped closer and rested her hands on my chest, her cheeks flushed, eyes bright. “I’m so happy to be here with you, you have no idea,” she said softly.

My abs clenched. Jesus, just having her hands on me made me as hard as iron. “I think I have an idea.”

“Yeah?” she said, moving even closer.

I might have decided to keep my dick in my pants, but there was no way I wasn’t going to kiss her. I’d go mad if I didn’t taste those full lips. I dipped my head. “Oh yeah.”

We’d had a couple of hot and heavy conversations over the phone, but I’d tried not to go there too often with her. I knew this day was coming, and I had a definite idea of how our time together should be spent. If I’d been listening to her come over the phone the last six months all that would have disappeared out the window. Shit, I’d already have her naked in my bed.

I growled, shoving that image out of my head, and closed the distance between us.

Finally, our lips met…and I kid you not, the fucking angels sang.

My mouth covered hers, moving slowly at first, and my entire body lit up, every nerve ending sparking, my heart pounding. I slid my arms around her small waist and hauled her off her feet, lifting her so we were the same height. Shoving my fingers in her hair, I tilted my head to get more of her, and she opened for me, her sweet little tongue flicking out and brushing mine.

I’d been with quite a few women in my life. Like I said, I’d lived wild for a lot of years, acting out, trying to work out what I wanted. But as soon as I did, as soon as I knew what I wanted for my future, I’d stopped all of it. I’d focused on my goal, which was building a house and finding a woman who I could share it with. That was four years ago. Which meant I’d been celibate that long as well. So I wasn’t surprised by my reaction to Freya, by the pulsing need pounding through me at finally having her against me.

But I’d never in my life experienced anything like this. Like a live wire was sparking inside me, through my whole damn body. My hips punched forward all on their own, my cock impossibly hard. I knew I had to slow this down, take a step back, but God only knew how I was going to do that.

Book Review: Grind by Sybil Bartel – A Sizzling Hot Romance With Heart

Book Review: Grind by Sybil Bartel – A Sizzling Hot Romance With Heart

Book Details:

Title: Grind

Author: Sybil Bartel

Publisher: Amazon Digital Services

Publication Date: June 27th, 2017

Genre: Romance, Military, Erotica

Warning: This book is explicit

 

My Review: 

 

Grind starts very graphic – and I don’t mean in the action or bloody department. There are no pretense, from the beginning that this book is sexually explicit, and while I don’t have – obviously – much of a problem with reading erotica novels, I was taken back, as most books usually are not that much in your face in the first few paragraphs – heck it did not wait until the second page! So my first impression was not the most pleasant one, but I stuck with it, and I am glad that I did.

While Grind is not for the faint of heart, it does have a lot of heart, and an actually pretty well-developed story line. It is emotional, the connection between the two main characters starts not in the best way – and it really took me until the middle of the second chapter before I got really warmed up to both of them. Yet, once the connection was made, it was heartwarming and endearing.

Both of the characters have a learning curve – again, something I miss in many erotica novels, who push sex above plot – but the Author managed to create a constructive, suspenseful plot despite the graphic sexual details.

Book Review: Grind by Sybil Bartel - A Sizzling Hot Romance With Heart Click To Tweet

Another thing that surprised me was, that I enjoyed the story despite the fact that it was written in alternating first-person past-tense narrative. I am usually not a fan of stories written in first-person – even less so, when they are written in present tense – yet the Author managed to keep the flow going, and switched rather seamlessly between the two main characters.

The book is a rather quick read, not because it is very short, but because once you warmed up to the main characters, you don’t want to stop reading. And speaking of characters, some of the side characters are rather charming, which made me hope that they get their own time in the other novels in the series.

Grind can be read as a stand-alone novel and has an HEA, which I very much appreciate. Yet, I will read the other books in the series, now that the Author got me curious.

 

Book Rating:

4 out of 5 Stars

Book Summary:

Dane

I’m silent. I’m trained. I’m lethal.

My hand skimming down your thigh, my gaze a weapon—I know more ways to kill you than please you.

But you’re not paying for my aim. You’re paying for my control. Bringing you a breath away from ecstasy, watching you beg as I hold back your release, I’ll show you exactly what you’ve been missing. Your hunger is my currency and five thousand is my price. I only have one rule—no repeats, because I’m not for keeps. I’m for sale.

One slow grind and I’ll give you exactly what you paid for.

Small-town wallflower, Adelaide Montgomery has lived an uneventful life—until she witnesses the murder of her best friend…

Adelaide clings to the simple security of a home and a wish for family—desires that sent her former fiancé into another woman’s arms.

Happy to remain in Heavenly, Australia for the rest of her life, she reluctantly gives in to her best friend, Rachel’s pleading to join her on a trip to Italy. A decision which will alter her life forever.

Knowing one day she will return home, he struggles to distance himself, but the trial and his family continue to throw him and Adelaide back together.

Will Antonio put his badge above his heart? Or will he risk it all—his career, Adelaide’s life, and the possibility of a future together—all for a chance at love?

EXCERPT:

She stared into his deep blue eyes, feeling the warmth of them. Her stomach somersaulted. Holding him this close was dangerous. She tried to warn herself but her body refused to listen to the commands her brain was sending out. He watched her intently. What was he thinking? Her heart beat sped up until it was pounding in her chest. The heat from his body liquefied her muscles and his manly scent, so intoxicating to her filled her lungs.

Pressed up against him, she could feel every hard pane of his chest. Her breath caught in her throat as desire flooded her. She shifted, an urgent ache gathering between her legs. Her mouth dried even as her belly quivered. Moving her hands from around his neck, she cupped his jaw.

Adelaide swallowed with difficulty. He wasn’t pushing her away—nor was he encouraging her.

Insufferable man.

Whatever happened between them would be her choice she knew. She—Adelaide Montgomery—for the first time in her life needed to make the first move and the idea both thrilled and terrified her.

“Adelaide—”

She cut him off when she crushed her lips against his. She didn’t think, just felt. Allowing desire to take her where it wanted to go. While afraid of rejection, the fear of always wondering ‘what if’ overrode her reservations and made her bolder than she’d ever been before. She took what she wanted, and she wanted him.

His lips were soft beneath her own as his hand on her back pushed her more firmly into him, stoking the fires within, feeling almost brazen as she sucked on his tongue and he moaned.

She deepened the kiss, one hand sliding into his hair and tilting his head for better access. His tongue rasped against hers, sending delicious tingles down her spine. She had never kissed like this before—never had been kissed like before. What more had she never experienced before? It was one thing to be told what you were missing, it was quite another to be teased with the promise.

Antonio’s hand slowly inched up her thigh and beneath the towel, finally resting on her bottom. A hot rush of liquid heat pooled between her thighs. Every touch made her feel beautiful and cherished. Her body burned with delicious heat, a firestorm of sensation and yet she didn’t want to put it out, only to feed the flames more until it was consuming her. Until her entire consciousness was blind of all things except this burning need.
