BLOG TOUR and *RRBB REVIEW*: Full Contact by Sarah Castille

Full Contact by Sarah Castille 
(Redemption #3) 
Published by: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Publication date: April 7th 2015
Genres: Adult, Erotica, Romance


When you can’t resist the one person who could destroy you…
Sia O’Donnell can’t help but push the limits. She secretly attends every underground MMA fight featuring The Predator, the undisputed champion. When he stalks his prey in the ring, Sia is mesmerized. He is dominant and dangerous and every instinct tells her to run.
Every beautiful thing Ray “The Predator” touches he knows he’ll eventually destroy. Soft, sweet and innocent, Sia is the light to Ray’s darkness-and completely irresistible. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows he’s going to have to put his dark past behind him to win her body and soul.


5 Stars!

The story of Sia and Ray (fight name:Predator).
Sia has been following Ray's career in the illegal underground MMA fights for a year.  Her dreams come true when he asks her to tattoo him.
But Sia has a secret in her past that does not allow for giving up control. Ray has secrets too - ones that make him demand control.
Can the two work together in order to have a lasting relationship, or will their secrets tear them apart?
I completely LOVED this story! Both the main characters were complicated, and even at the end, I wasn't sure how things would end up.
The secondary characters, like Sia's brother Tag, and her best friend Jess, were also outstanding. I do hope for a follow-up book for them!
The other characters, such as the fighters at Redemption, and the Tattoo workers were also great.
After the sex was worked into the equation, it continued to be one of the main focuses of the story. So know that it gets heavy into erotica territory, with a BDSM light edge to it.  The love scenes were hot and heavy, and went on for pages and pages!  HOT!
For all these reasons, I give the book a solid 5 Star rating!

RELEASE DAY BLAST: Unsportsmanlike Conduct by Melody Heck Gatto

Title: Unsportsmanlike Conduct
Series: Renegades Book 2
Author: Melody Heck Gatto
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: April 17, 2015

Patrick was a infamous playboy known for his love of women and of course, puck bunnies. He never wanted to be a one woman kind of guy...
Since the day he laid eyes on his cousin's sister-in-law he's been in knots. Actually, the first thing he laid eyes on was her ass, and a mighty fine ass it was. The way she paraded herself around, strutting and swaying her rocking body made his mouth water. The things he would give up to have that body against his.
Gia's first impression of Patrick was pure disgust; the way he ogled her was just gross. With blatant staring and drooling he made no attempt to hide his attraction to her. The cocky smile that spread across his face made her want to puke. Sure, sauntering around her sister's yard in a teeny tiny bikini didn't help the situation. The fact that she liked the attention was wrong since she was with Tyler. Patrick was dangerously hot and there was a naughty excitement that filled her, but flirting was as far as it would go.
Until that night.
One night of weakness.
One night of pure lust.
Gia quickly learned it was impossible to make her feelings vanish, seeing Patrick brought all those raw desires back. She was determined to fight them, her relationship with Tyler meant too much. That cocky smile that infuriated her also turned her on. Coming face to face with him, her body took over and she gave in to her primal desires.
When Gia's life takes an unexpected turn, all true colors are revealed.
In the midst of her life falling apart, her true love may have been in front of her the whole time.
Add the Book on Goodreads

Patrick didn't want a puck bunny, he wanted Gia. How was he supposed to get her out of his head? This last month was almost too much to bear. He hadn't seen her in almost a year and his body ached from missing her. He felt like he couldn't breathe. This was bad. Really bad.
"Kris," Patrick said softly as his friend turned to go back to their table.
"Yeah, Cuz?" Kris paused, looking Patrick in the eye.
"There's one problem." Patrick sighed heavily. "I don't think I can."

Caged Amazon   button synopsis  
Rising stars in the cage fighting circuit, Cage and Tripp Garrett are as close as two brothers can be. Fiercely competitive and smoldering with intensity, neither has ever lost a fight. Until they face their toughest opponent yet: Lily.
They both want her. But neither can have her. Lily is as off-limits as they come. They make a pact that the tough-as-nails daughter of their trainer will never come between them. Until one of them begins to fall in love. Then all is fair in love and war. Caged is a sexy, fast-paced love story with a punch. Warning: Contains adult language and sexual content.
button excerpt
I toss my arms above my head and rock my hips to the movement. Warm hands wrap around my waist. I smile and look over my shoulder. It’s Tripp. He starts to grind with me, and I shake my ass against his pelvis. I can feel the hard erection in his pants and it sends a shiver up my spine. He’s huge, and I already know how ripped he is from all the time he spends shirtless at the gym. I’ll never be able to get these panties clean again. Cage slides into the space in front of me. My throat tightens and I lose my breath. I’m in the middle of a hot man sandwich. Cage’s hands skim over my sides and come to rest at my lower back, a fraction away from my ass. He’s so tall, I feel tiny and I have to crane my neck just to look up at him. Dark, hungry eyes are reflected back down at me. He’s still giving off that intense vibe, but at least he’s here with me. I wouldn’t want to dance with just Tripp. Tripp continues grinding behind me, and Cage grips my hips from the font. I’ve never danced with two guys at once like this before. My breasts press against the hard planes of Cage’s chest. He must be able to feel how hard my nipples are, just like I can feel the hot, heavy erections both men are sporting. It makes me want things I know I can’t have.

BLOG TOUR and *RRBB REVIEW*: Unpredictable by Shantel Tessier

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 6, 2015

My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.

But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.

Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.

What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.

I sit at the wedding party table and watch the lovely couple smile at one another as they eat their cake. It’s sickening. 

I can’t get my mind off the beautiful yet bitchy woman sitting next to me. She is having a much easier time ignoring me. But she did admit earlier that she was a good faker. I try to get up the courage to speak to her by taking another drink of my wine. I don’t need the liquid courage to actual speak to her; I need it to keep me calm from being a dick, which is what I do so well. I really don’t want her to kick me in the balls like she said she would. 

“Would you like to talk about what happened that day?” I ask her politely. 

She looks up from her cake and stares at me as if I have two heads. “Not to you.”

“Maybe I can help you,” I offer. “I am a police officer,” I remind her as if I wasn’t the one who threw her down in her front yard and handcuffed her. “Does that type of thing happen often with you and your boyfriend?” Maybe they like to fight. Maybe it’s like their foreplay. Believe me, I have seen some crazy shit. 

She places her fork on the white tablecloth and leans over to whisper, “I told you once and I’ll tell you again. Drop it. What happened was none of your business.” 

I reach out to softly rub her arm, and I feel it break out in goosebumps. “Does he hurt you?” I ask looking deep into her eyes. I’m being a total ass, and she knows it.

She jerks her arm away from me. “I had just got home that morning and was in a bad fucking mood,” she growls. 

Just gotten home? It was like seven in the morning. “What in the hell were you doing just getting home?” I demand. “Especially the way you were dressed.” I smile as I let the dickness come out. “Been out hooking all night? And your man got tired of having to share you?” The memory of her telling me that she wanted to fuck her man’s best friend is still fresh in my mind. And what a thought that is. 

I hear Samantha gasp as I watch Katherine’s eyes narrow on me. She reaches over to the table, and the next thing I know, she’s shoving her cake into my face. “Vas te faire encule salaud,” she hisses in my ear before I feel a cold liquid land in my lap. I can literally hear my cock sizzle as if she just put out a fire. Holy fuck, did she cuss at me in French? I think I just came.


The story of Parker and Katherine (Kat).
Parker is a cop, and Kat is a nurse.
Parker willingly calls himself a jerk, dick, etc - which is true.  Kat lives up to her b*tch mantra.
When the two meet, it is quite hilarious, and outrageous.  Kat takes a baseball bat and a knife to a truck, just so that her ex-boyfriend can't have it.  Parker is there as a cop, and she winds up busting his nose.
As coincidences go, they wind up as bridesmaid and groomsman at a wedding.
Somewhere along the line, despite being just plain psychotic to each other, they wind up enthralled.
This one was a hard story for me.  I went back and forth on liking it, then rolling my eyes.  It tended to be a lot of clich├ęd storylines tossed together.  My favorite part, however, was their first time!  The fact that she faked it - LOVED!  His man-card was revoked and it was hilarious! (spoiler)
Even after finishing it, I am still at a loss for why they fell for each other.  It was as if he just decided this was the woman he was going to stick it out with, even though she was a total bitch almost all the time.
There were redeeming moments.  Moments when Parker would hang out with kids.  Moments when Kat would visit her father.
For those things, I am giving this a 3.5 Stars.
