Red Hot Reads for June

These are my offerings for Red Hot Reads. You can find the full reviews at either LASR or WC.


Hell, Yeah! by Carolyn Brown
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Genre: Action/Adventure, Contemporary, Suspense/Mystery
Length: Full Length (351 pgs)

What happens when a perpetual bachelor turns into a terminal bachelor? Add one determined, but gun-shy woman into the mix... can’t make it too easy on him. What have you got? You’ve got a hot and bothered oil man and one saucy woman who just might make an honest man of him. Hell, Yeah.

Kidnapping the Groom by Desiree Holt and Allie Standifer
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Short Story (53 pgs)

What do you do when you find out the one that got away is about to marry the wrong woman? Kidnap him and show him the sexual time of his life, that’s what.

Are you intrigued? I was, so I read Kidnapping the Groom.

Spirits of Abaddon: Sanctified by Mychael Black
Publisher: Changeling Press
Genre: Action/Adventure, Contemporary, Paranormal, Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Length: Short Story (44 pgs)

A demon, a mage, and a human went into the gates of Abaddon. Sounds like a joke? It’s not. It’s the gripping introduction to Spirits of Abaddon: Sanctified and let me tell you, when you start this book, you won’t want to put it down.

Rock Me by Cherrie Lynn
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Full Length (205 pgs)

You want a story that’s hot from the word go? Then you very much so need to read Rock Me.

I love a story where the bad boy and the good girl try to make a go of things. Ms Lynn’s story had me from hello. Things start hot and never let up. I felt like I was the one sitting there in the tattoo artist’s chair waiting for my new ink—and I’m too squeamish to get body art. But this story had me thinking otherwise.

The Lost Son by Mychael Black
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Action/Adventure, Paranormal, Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Length: Short Story (91 pgs)

Non-stop action and a red-hot love affair. You won’t be able to put this book down.

I know when I pick up a Mychael Black story, I’ll be on a thrill-ride. The Lost Son is no exception to this rule and totally worth the read.

Shut Up and Kiss Me by Mysti Holiday
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Short Story (50 pgs)

What are you waiting for? Shut Up and Kiss Me. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? For Cole and Kasey, it’s anything but simple.

I love a story that grabs me and makes me feel what the characters are thinking/feeling immediately. This book is one of those rare gems. I’ve never read a Mysti Holiday story, but I guarantee, this won’t be the last. There is a sense of not only their longing for each other, but the raw desire felt when they’re thrown into a situation together. Ms. Holiday writes tenderness and snark with equal prowess.
