Love in the Dark, by Isabel Pietri

Blurb:
NYPD surveillance expert, Detective Millie Angeles knows well that scintillating things can transpire under the cover of dark. Some of them happen to be quite pleasurable. Others, however, are nothing short of deadly. LOVE in the DARK lifts the cloak of darkness on one woman’s action-packed life, revealing high action and erotic encounters that are certain to enthrall and excite anyone who loves their intrigue served with plenty of sauce.
In the sordid, shimmering streets of New York City, Millie has made a name for herself working in the elite TARU unit of the New York Police Department as the go-to girl for surveillance and tracking. However, when tragedy occurs, she finds herself casting about for a new chapter. That all falls into place when she lands a job at a private company, which dispatches her to the West Coast to work for Adrian Zaragosa, a blind, and strikingly handsome owner of a winery estate in the Napa Valley. As the plot thickens and their passion sparks, Millie finds herself in the throes of both extreme danger and overpowering desire. Millie’s talents seem to be just what Adrian needs. Or is he simply manipulating a situation to have her near?
Blood-pumping and heart-racing, LOVE in the DARK will leave readers wanting more, and perhaps even begging for it. It’s Fifty Shades of Grey and the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo commingling into one irresistible read.

“A cop gets more than she bargained for when she agrees to be the director of security for a mysterious business man in this debut thriller.”-Kirkus

“Mystery and erotica meld together to build a tense narrative led by a no-nonsense female cop. Plots and subplots that feature aspects of colorful characters, mystery and sex.” -Clarion Review

AUTHOR INTERVIEW
BIO:
I am a retired Labor Union President from NYC. In retirement, I have taken up the craft of creative writing, which has been a life long passion of mine. I have one book published, “LOVE in the DARK” (view on Amazon). The second book in the trilogy, “The Black Calla Lily” is almost done. Aside from being a published author, I scuba dive, fish, golf, target shoot, drink good wine, love vodka martinis and read.

SEXY BOOKS BLOG INTERVIEW:

Q: IN FIVE WORDS PLEASE DESCRIBE YOUR WRITING STYLE:
A: My writing style is conversational.

Q: TOP THREE FAVORITE TITLES (BOOKS OR MOVIES):
A: Gone with the Wind, Casa Blanca, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Q: DO YOUR LEADING CHARACTERS COME FROM ANY PLACE IN PARTICULAR?
A: You could say they are a composite of myself, my husband and people I know, past and present.

Q: WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR DOWN TIME?
A: I read, write, play with my dog and two cats, play golf, swim, scuba, watch movies, drink good wine and observe people.

Q: TOP FIVE SNACKS WHILE WRITING:
A: Wine (red or white, but mostly red, Malbecs from Argentina).

Q: WHAT’S YOUR WRITING PROCESS?
A: I daydream constantly re-playing a drama over and over again, tweaking here and there until I like the drama in my head. Then and only then do I sit to write. Once the actual writing starts, I find the story writes itself.

Q: TALK TO US ABOUT YOUR BOOK, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OR CHARACTER?
A: I love all the characters in LOVE in the DARK. Mr. Z is easy to love, but Millie is my favorite. Her character is complex. She is a rough and tumble sort of gal while at the same time loves playing the role of submissive to Mr. Z. Millie’s sense of justice, her loyalty, and courage culminate at the end making it my favorite part of the book.

Q: WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
A: Umm….I’d rather not say.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING A WRITER?
A: I like writing for the sake of writing. To be able to use language to evoke emotions and thoughts and draw a person into an imaginary world where they can let go of reality for a while is a good feeling. Then there is self-discovery. I never thought I had the language to write explicit sex scenes. Imagine my surprise! Entertainment is what it is all about.

Review of Ugly Love, by Colleen Hoover

Synopsis:
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.
Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Completely. Still, he’s all she can see. The question is.. Will he break her beyond repair? And will he open his eyes before it’s too late, and she’s gone forever?

Review of On the Record (The Record Series, Book 2), by KA Linde

IMG_9706.PNG
Synopsis:
For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…
The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

BOOK NERDS SERIOUSLY RECOMMENDS!
5 stars!!! We LOVED Off The Record when it came out, and this book has followed it up with perfection. Your heart will tug, your tears will spill, your throat will close up, and you will feel every bit of torment that these characters feel. The good side? You’ll also feel the passion they feel. Congressman Brady Maxwell is a young, yet seasoned politician. He keeps his campaign mask firmly in place at all times. But she has always been able to see through that mask.
She may have walked away from him in the last book…. But do either one of them stand a chance in being able to move on with their lives? You’ll have to read to find out!

Get it now on Amazon!

The 3rd book in the series titled For the Record is scheduled to be released 11/18/2014 – and we can’t wait!

If you have yet to read the first book, and you find yourself interested (which you should be) – here’s the synopsis:
Off The Record synopsis:
Liz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.
Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.
But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.
Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?

Review of Bender (The Core Four Book 1), by Stacy Borel

IMG_9705.PNG
This is the first installment of The Core Four series. Each of the Brooks brothers will have their own story. Bender can be read as a stand alone.

Synopsis:
All Keegan wanted was a roommate who was quiet, minded their own business, and paid for part of the rent. Instead, she got Camden Brooks.
Camden, with his sinful body, sharp tongue, and the inability to stay out of Keegan’s personal space, couldn’t seem to curb his interest in the new girl who wouldn’t put up with his domineering ways.
Feelings were running rampant, sexual tension was thick, and both were struggling to let go of control.
To some people, getting a roommate simply meant living with another person. But to both Camden and Keegan it was a curveball that neither was prepared to swing at.

BOOK NERDS HIGHLY RECOMMENDS!
We give Bender 2 thumps up! Anybody else out there a sucker for those jerks who wind up being so compassionate in the end? This is a book for everyone to enjoy. Camden Brooks is SMOKIN!!! He’s the epitome of the man you’d love to back hand and he’s everything you could want, all wrapped up in one!

Book Nerds Review of The Husband Hazard, by Vivien Paige.

Who doesn’t love bringing a bad boy to his knees? Who doesn’t love a little bit of animosity and bickering to elevate the sexual tension? Characters that purposely add fuel to the fire… Misunderstandings…. Misjudgments… Misguided good intentions. What else could you ask for in a romance?!

He knows it, she knows it. Yet they are pulled to each other from their very first meeting, brother be damned! This impenetrable bad boy is cracked wide open. Hearts are left bleeding out on the floor…
