Sweet Temptation: Collision Point By Lora Leigh

Sweet Temptation is a feature on Wickedly Delicious Book Blog. That centers around books that have caught my attention. Whether it be a quote, snippet, teaser, excerpt, synopsis or a review.

Collision Point by Lora Leigh
Series: Brute Force #1
Release Date: February 27, 2018

From #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh comes Collision Point, part of the thrilling Brute Force series—packed with powerful men, steely women, and explosive passion.

Riordan Malone is more than a bodyguard. As an Elite Ops agent, he’s ripped, raged, and ready to rumble—a true warrior, inside and out. But no war zone can compare to the battle in Rory’s heart when he lays eyes on the only woman he’s ever loved—and thought he had lost forever. . .

As the daughter of a crime lord, Amara Resnova has endured the cruelty of her father’s enemies—and has tried to escape that world ever since. Now, she must reach out to the one man who saved her life, even if she’s never forgiven him for breaking her heart. But Amara is tougher today than she was then. She’s also more desirable to Rory—and dangerous to love. Can he protect her from her father’s enemies without surrendering to his own passions…or will love seal their fate for good?

Thoughts: It has been some time since I read a Romantic Suspense from Lora Leigh. I miss her sexy Alpha Males. I am curious how this series will be. Hopefully it will be as good as her Tempting Seals and Elite Ops series.

Before He Kills by Blake Pierce

From #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce comes a heart-pounding new mystery series.

In the cornfields of Nebraska a woman is found murdered, strung up on a pole, the victim of a deranged killer. It doesn’t take long for the police to realize a serial killer is on the loose—and that his spree has just begun.

Detective Mackenzie White, young, tough, smarter than the aging, chauvinistic men on her local force, finds herself called in grudgingly to help solve it. As much as the other officers hate to admit it, they need her young, brilliant mind, which has already helped crack cold cases that had left them stumped. Yet even for Mackenzie this new case proves an impossible riddle, something the likes of which she—and the local force—have ever seen.

With the FBI called in, together, an intense manhunt ensues. Mackenzie, reeling from her own dark past, her failed relationships, and her undeniable attraction to the new FBI agent, finds herself battling her own demons as her hunt for the killer takes her to the darkest places of her mind. As she delves into the killer’s mind, obsessing over his twisted psychology, she finds that evil truly does exist. She only hopes it will not be too late to extricate herself from it, as her entire life collapses around her.

As more bodies turn up dead and a frantic race against time ensues, there is no way out but to find him before he kills again.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, Before He Kills marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Everyone thinks Sally’s just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth—she’s dead. Murdered. Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can’t do it alone. Against her better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally’s disappearance.

Only to find out she’s dealing with a much bigger problem, a serial killer, and she may be the next victim…

Will Mattie be able to find out the truth before the killer finds her?

This isn't your typical love story.

Lauren doesn’t know why she is such a bitch, but she is. She believes in being who you are and fuck those who don’t like it. Her ex is pissed, and she soon realises the hard way that she never should have betrayed him. Yet, pretty-boy Andrew isn’t as innocent as she thought. In fact, it turns out he’s connected to one of the biggest gangs in America.

Lauren is beaten and abused in every way possible. Her human rights are stripped, and she is treated like an animal. Blindfolded and gagged, Lauren has no idea what is going to become of her, or if she will ever get out of the mess she has found herself in.

Karma has finally caught up with Lauren Ashford, but is this the end, or can someone out there help her? Are there men strong enough, or even brave enough, to face up to her captors?

When the Philadelphia Kings of Rebellion charter come crashing into her kidnappers’ motorcycle club's cabin, they find a beautiful girl chained up to a wall and made to live like a dog on the hard floor.

From here, Lauren is given the greatest gift. To go home. Once back in the UK, Lauren is under the protection of the UK Kings of Rebellion MC and is shocked to find that even though they are dangerous, they treat her so much better. Here she meets Grim, the oldest son of the president. He’s covered in tattoos, drives a bike, likes to dress in leather and loves to protect her. Is this the man that
Lauren needs? Or do her old habits of being a “do now, think later” kind of bitch, come back to bite her in the ass?

One thing is for certain, Demon, the president of the motorcycle club who took her, wants her back...

Review: The Black Wolf by J.A. Redmerski

Rating: 3 Stars - Liked It
The Black Wolf by J.A. Redmerski
Series: In The Company Of Killers #5
Genre: Suspense
Publisher: J.A. Redmerski on August 29, 2015
Format: Kindle
Pages: 302
Source: Bought
Since devastating secrets were uncovered by Nora Kessler, Niklas Fleischer and Victor Faust have been divided as business partners and brothers. But ultimately Niklas is persuaded to lead a mission to Italy, and he sees it as an opportunity to set in motion forgiveness—or retribution—for his brother’s betrayal.

The mission: play the role of a wealthy German investor and kidnap a beautiful, notorious madam named Francesca Moretti. No stranger to these types of roles, Niklas is the best man for the job, but this time the risks will be much greater as he will not be doing it alone. Izabel Seyfried, still fresh out of a life of imprisonment and sex slavery, could be negatively affected by the things she will see in Moretti’s mansion, and Niklas must keep her in line so she does not blow their cover and get them killed.

But Niklas isn’t the only one who must play a role—Nora takes on the humiliating task of playing Niklas’s slave, and Izabel must play the role of his lover.

On one hand, Niklas couldn’t be enjoying himself more. On the other hand, the emotions that continue to rage inside of him may be too much for him to control, and it may be Niklas—not Izabel—who needs to be kept in line. He cannot forget what Victor has done, and this mission may just be the beginning of his downward spiral.

Can the blood bond that Niklas and Victor share as brothers be stronger than resentment? Or will vengeance dig the blade so deep that their bond be eternally severed?
Thoughts: Love this series and  Niklas was a character that was slowly growing on me through out. He really caught my interest in Seeds Of Iniquity #3. I really want to get to know more about him than what I got with his book. The begining started out amazing learning how much he really has always looked up to his brother Victor since they were kids.

The mission started out good in the begining and enjoyed the rolls that they had to play. The plot did go down hill from there for me. For a bunch of bad ass assassins more so Niklas they were dumb. I knew right away who they were looking for it was obvious. I could not grasp how they could not of known. Knowing right away who they were after was a shock for me because J.A. Redmerski is so talented with never knowing what is happening. While on their mission the story just never moved foward. Loved that a few things happened that was not expecting with the characters and of course this is J.A. Redmerski. Who is known to not hold anything back when it fits the plot.

The story did pick up again the last 15%  and was back to being amazing. The Black Wolf was still a good read but it was for me the weakest in the series. As always you never know what kind of read you are going to get In The Company Of The Killers series. My dear Niklas what have you done.

Sweet Temptation: Spiders In The Grove by J.A. Redmerski

Sweet Temptation is a feature on Wickedly Delicious Book Blog. That centers around books that have caught my attention. Whether it be a quote, snippet, teaser, excerpt, synopsis or a review.

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers. This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ'S Book Palace

Spiders In The Grove by J.A. Redmerski
Publisher: Author
Series: In The Company Of Killers #7
Genre: Suspense
Izabel and Naeva find themselves right where they wanted to be in Mexico: captured and held in the slave compounds owned by the Ruiz family. But the two are soon separated and forced into very different—but equally dangerous—situations. Izabel spends the next three weeks playing a role she never expected she would get the opportunity to play, but her luck runs out when Naeva’s life hangs in the balance, and only Izabel can save her. But at a terrible cost. If Izabel chooses to help Naeva, it will expose a lie she has been carrying on her shoulders since she met Victor Faust. A lie that will not only potentially make everyone in Victor’s Order distrust her going forward, but one that will also blow her carefully constructed cover In Mexico, and that could get her killed.

Fredrik, still looking for his serial killer, does not have to look long—the killer finds him. And Niklas’s past catches up to him when an old enemy comes back for revenge. But it will be Victor’s actions that shake up those left in his Order, and ultimately, be its downfall.

Thoughts: I am combining My Sweet Temptation Feature and Lusting For Covers Meme from  TBQ @ TBQ'S Book Palace.

I have loved all the covers for this series. They have all portrayed the characters with each of their books and the plot. I like the black and white with some red font.

I am a huge fan of this series and get excited with each new book. I am not one to read Suspense other than the sexy hero Roarke from In Death Series by J.D. Robb. I felt when In The Company Of Killers first came out with Killing Sarai it was more of a Romantic Suspense but by the third book Fredrik story I defiantly seen the turn in the series to more of suspense. I was happy with the way she went with the series.  As J.A. Redmerski states in Fredrik story, this series can be categorized as Crime, Suspense, Thriller, Mystery, Psychological Thriller and sometimes Romanic Suspense. It does have the elements of love and romance but not enough to actually fall into those categories.  That is the best part with each book I never know what I am going to get. J.A. Redmerski is not afraid to shock readers with any crazy twist, that for me have never been over the top, eye rolling ridiculous. She does not throw crazy things in there to just make it a shock factor. No, she is a brilliant writer that all of the  twist and turns have been true to plot. If anything  in some cases if she would of written them different it would of felt off in the plot. Now I am eager for book #7 because the plot has been leading up to this moment for a few books. Can not wait to see how everything plays out.
