Ride Dirty - Laura Kaye - Review & Excerpt Tour

From New York Times Bestselling author Laura Kaye, comes RIDE DIRTY, a new novella in her Raven Riders Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

But then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

With every new thing he shared, Caine felt like a thin filament stretched between them, anchoring them together. The connection between them was growing, strengthening. He could feel it like he’d never felt anything before.

He was getting attached. To that feeling. To Emma herself.

It was what he’d always wanted. It was the thing he feared the most.

But right now, he had it. He had her. And he wanted her…

“Stand up, Emma.” The questions in her gaze quickly shifted to understanding, and she rose above him. His hands went to her waistband and quickly bared her. Caine pulled her until she stood with her feet on either side of him where he sat leaning against the front of the couch. “I want my mouth on you again.”

The moan that spilled out of her at the first swipe of his tongue went right to his cock. He unzipped his jeans and shoved them down his thighs. Then he held her open with his thumbs so that her clit was right where he wanted it to be. He sucked and flicked and nipped until she was thrusting against his face. He groaned his approval. Her hips became more frantic. “Caine,” she cried hoarsely, her knees going out such that she nearly collapsed into his lap, still shaking.

He took advantage and kissed her, wanting some part of him inside of her while her orgasm wrung every second of pleasure out of her.

“Jesus, your mouth should be illegal,” she said, chuffing out a breathless laugh.

“You say the nicest things,” he said, the playful words probably masking just how much he lapped up her praise. “Will you take me in you?”

She didn’t hesitate—she shifted to her knees. They both shucked their shirts. He pulled his last condom from his wallet and rolled it on.

She impaled herself on him, inch by soul-stealing inch. “You fill me up so good,” she said.

The echo of his earlier thought stretched a new filament of connection between them. “Ride me, Emma. Show me how you like it.”

5 Stars

Ride Dirty is Caine and Emma’s story and a novella featured in the 1001 Dark Nights range, and although it’s not the first title in the Raven Riders series, it can be read as a standalone.   This is an emotional story, angst fuelled slow burn romance.

Emma epitomises everything that is a kindergarten teacher, she kind, sweet, caring and compassionate.  Although she has an air of innocence about her, she’s more complex than she appears.  Emma is honest, astute, sincere, and open minded and not afraid to share her thoughts.  Although she’s is surrounded by people day in, and day out she’s also quite lonely.

Caine is an incredibly enigmatic character.  The Sergeant At Arms, for the Raven Riders, he’s responsible for protecting not only his brothers but anyone the club is responsible for and he takes these responsibilities very seriously.  Outwardly he portrays an intense, masculine, strong, gruff, and intimidating, brooding man.  But underneath the tough, closed off exterior, is a broken, damaged man.  Experiences from his past haunt Caine, and although he’s part of a brotherhood, he isolates himself and prefers his own company and he is very wary of giving his complete trust.

The attraction this pair share is mutual, but Caine does his best to fight the temptation of their budding chemistry. The sexual tension and connection they share is intense, and with more time in each other’s company the tension oozes from the page and when they finally connect it’s combustible.

Ride Dirty is an incredibly well written and paced story with characters are not only complex and well developed despite this being a novella length read, but endearing, charismatic and realistic.  Emma is the light to Caine’s darkness and their story is a heartfelt read that has elements of suspense, intrigue and heat seamless blended throughout. 

I adored this title and hope that this is not the last we will see of the Raven Riders.

Laura is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty books in contemporary and erotic romance and romantic suspense, including the Raven Riders, Hard Ink, and Raven Riders series.

Switch Hitter - Sara Ney - Release Blitz

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Same hair color.

Same legs.

Same face.

Except…I look harder.

At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.

It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.


4.5 Stars 

Switch Hitter is a short, sweet and thoroughly enjoyable novella with a hero who is a far cry from some of Sara's previous heroes.  Dash is kind, caring and considerate, and only interested in a relationship with a girl, he can take home to meet his mother. 

Twin sisters Lucy and Amelia may look alike, but they couldn't be more different.  

Lucy is the party girl, who finds herself in the unenviable position of having committed to two dates for the same evening.  Her twin sister Amelia comes to the rescue with surprising results.  After originally feeling a lack luster connection with Lucy, Dash is baffled and confused when he feels and undeniable attraction and connection with her on their second date. 

The sexual tension and chemistry between this pair is undeniable and believable and just oozes off the page.   

I thoroughly enjoyed this pair, and hope that we get to see more of them in future titles in the Jock Row series.

The Hook Up Experiment - Emma Hart - Review & Excerpt Tour

1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.

2.Remember to hate him.

3.Prove my brother wrong.

It should be easy.

It isn’t.

As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics—except this time, they're required.

My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.

I disagree. I know it’s possible.

And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.

It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.

Not to mention packing in the pants department...

Three hook-ups.

One outcome.

“Is she okay with that juice?” Peyton watched her go.

I selected the Blu-ray from the cupboard and shot a smirk her way. “Sorry to break it to you, but you’re getting a juice box.”

“I can live with that.”

I turned away and hit the eject button on the player. “You didn’t have to say yes to her, you know.”

“Of course, I had to. Have you seen those eyes? How do you say no to her, ever?”

“I think of all the times she screams and swings her arms like a tiny terrorist, and it’s pretty easy.” I put the disk in and turned around.

Peyton had one eyebrow raised. “See, now, I’d think that’s reason to say no.”

“It depends on the day. Sometimes it results in her being put to bed to calm down, which means she ends up taking a rare afternoon nap, and I get some peace and quiet.”

“That’s a thing around her? She was talking to me for thirty minutes flat about what I did and didn’t like.”

“Only thirty minutes? Lucky you. She has about three hours of material of that.” I took a seat on the sofa, making sure to leave space between us for Bri. “Did she get started on hedgehogs yet?”

Peyton looked a little confused. “Hedgehogs?”

“YouTube is the devil.”

“That…was quite the jump in subject.”

I laughed as the main menu music hit on the TV. “I’m going to preface this by saying kids are weird.”

“Some get that from their parents.”

I blinked at her for a second. She wasn’t wrong if half these people who had a mini-career opening fucking toys on YouTube were parents.

“There are a bunch of stupid videos on YouTube, and apparently, watching people open toys is thrilling.”

Now, she looked really confused.

“And on one of those she watched, the person had a pet hedgehog who wasn’t having the nonsense of her opening a Hatchimal on camera, so it stole the egg.”

She blinked several times in quick succession. “I have no idea what you just said, and if I’m honest… Please don’t explain it.”

I laughed and hit play on the TV.

“Here’s your dooce-box,” Briony said, handing Peyton two. “And das mine. I can’t do the straws.”

“Oh. Right. Okay.” Peyton looked at the two juices that had been thrust at her.

Smiling, I took one from her. I pulled the straw off the back, out of the tiny plastic slip, and poked it through the foiled hole in the top. “There you go,” I said to Briony. “What do you want for dinner?”

She put the straw in her mouth and pursed her lips as she sucked the juice up. Peyton watched her, lips twitching, as she put her straw in place.

“Pizza!” Briony announced.

Oh no. I’d eaten too much pizza lately.

Was there such a thing as too much pizza?

Maybe if the toppings were changed up…

“Peydon, do you want pizza?” Bri asked, leaning right into her.

“I like pizza,” she replied, smiling sweetly down at her. “What’s your favorite?”

“I like spots and cheese.”


I coughed on my water. “Pepperoni,” I explained. “They look like spots on the pizza.”

Peyton’s eyes met mine for a minute. Silent laughter shone back at me. That really was toddler logic at its finest.

“You know,” she said, looking down at Peyton. “Spots are my favorite, too!”

Once again, Briony gasped. “Reawy?”

“Really, really. I love spots.”

Oh, Jesus.

It might have been a mistake introducing these two. Not only was my daughter becoming increasingly obsessed with someone who seemed to be a brunette, adult version of her…

No, that was the problem. Peyton was the brunette, adult version of Briony, attitude and all—and if there was anything my daughter didn’t need, it was someone who could teach her a thing or ten about sarcasm.

“I’ll order pizza,” I said, going to stand.

“Oh, you got it last time. I’ll go call them.” Peyton put her juice on the side table and tried to move, but Briony stopped her.

“No. Mimi told me that only gentlemen buy dinner. Princesses sit and look priddy.”

Peyton looked down at her. “Sit and look pretty? I like to buy my own pizza sometimes, and that’s okay.”

Without missing a beat, Briony said, “Princesses sit and look priddy so the mens buying dinner don’t know dat we can kick dere butts.”

4.5 Stars

The Hook Up Experiment is the first title in the Experiment Duet, and I would highly recommend reading The Upside to Being Single as it features the same set of friends. 

If you are looking for a hilarious, sweet, sexy and charming romantic comedy/enemies to lovers story, jam packed full of heart and humor this is the title for you. 

Peyton is a complex character full of sassy and snark, but extremely comfortable in her own skin.  She's not afraid to show her confident, headstrong, and determined nature and has an inability to back down from a bet.  She's ambitious, demanding and impatient and when she wants something she is goal orientated, and not afraid to work for it. Despite her tendency to be a bit dramatic, she is kind, compassionate and supportive.  She will do anything for those closest to her.  I loved that Peyton is so honest, brutally so at times.  This pair share a past mixed with miscommunications, hurt and humiliation and boy does Peyton know how to hold a grudge. I loved the little quirks to her personality that made her so relate-able, and realistic. 

Elliot is the perfect alpha male.  He's a wonderful blend of ego, quick wit, sarcasm and knows how to talk dirty.  Being a single father he has patience down to an art form, something he needs not only with his young daughter, but Peyton as well.  He's an honest, loving, good guy, there really isn't anything that I disliked about this character. 
The relationship Elliott and Payton share is swoon-worthy, their attraction and chemistry is off the charts intense and just oozes off the page.  I loved their competitive natures, and their interactions are full of passion and heat.  The banter is fun, flirty and full of sarcasm and sass that had me laughing out loud on several occasions. 

I've yet to be disappointed by an Emma Hart title, and The Hook Up Experiment, had me hooked from the very first chapter.  The characters are so fun, endearing and relate-able, and I will be eagerly awaiting the release of the second title in the Experiment Duet later this year. 

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies—usually wine—and writes books.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
