Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Release Date: December 9, 2015

Blurb
A tough-as-nails businesswoman. An arrogant Navy SEAL. A power struggle with no end in sight. Some people hook-up at weddings. Others break a hotel room bed (and a table, and a desk, and some complimentary bathrobe belts) and discover they’ve been surviving on bargain basement orgasms their entire lives.

The last one? Yeah. That’s all me.

 

She’s driven and demanding… I wasn’t always a bitch. There’s a dirty little trick to succeeding in business: the sweet and innocent rarely survive. I fought my way up from nothing, and I don’t bend for anyone.

Until Will Halsted ties me to a headboard and makes me his…for now.

One wild, filthy night turns into another, and then…we can’t stop. Each time we’re together is more addictive than the last, but it’s nothing more than a sexy escape from reality.

Or is it?

He’s never walked away from a challenge…

I wasn’t always a warrior but now it’s in my bones and blood. That’s what years spent in the Special Forces does to a man. My entire life is classified: where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, what I’ve done, and there’s no mission too dangerous.

Until I realize that falling for Shannon Walsh is like trying to swim against a riptide. She’s going to tear me up and toss me to the shore, and I’ll love every minute of it.

Every time I’m down range, I want her counting the hours until I’m back. Waiting for me. She’s done it before; she’ll do it again.

Or will she?

They’re wrong for each other in every possible way…

Or are they?

Excerpt
Her pale brows drew together in a vicious scowl, and I recognized I was wrong about Shannon. She wasn’t a socialite, not at all. She was a fighter, and a scrappy one at that.“In other words,” she said, “I run this town and I don’t need any help doing it.”

She shrugged and now that shoulder was all the way exposed. A wild splash of freckles ran across her skin, and I was too tired, too fed up with this conversation, too tightly wound to do anything but imagine tasting her right there. I pushed off from the counter and stared at the sea, all while searching for enough discipline to make it back to my room without doing something unbelievably stupid.

But instead of leaving the bar right then, I stopped beside Shannon and studied those freckles. “Like the tail of a comet,” I murmured.

I reached out and traced a line from the ball of her shoulder across her collarbone. Then my gaze shifted to her mouth and those defiant, sinful lips, and my other hand was sliding up her neck and into her hair.

I didn’t know why I did it. Maybe it had been too long since I touched a woman. Maybe I couldn’t handle the post-deployment horny as well as I used to. Or maybe…maybe I wanted to get into a power struggle with Shortcake.

My forehead rested against Shannon’s as I moved into her space, crowding her and feeling all five-foot-nothing of her pressed against me.

“What are you doing?” she whispered.

“Waiting for you to stop me,” I said against her lips.

Author Bio
Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people–be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane–ever since. Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

This no-holds barred, sexy New York Times bestseller pushes the envelope like no other novel has as it spins the titillating, enticing tale of one man who teaches women everything they need to know to make their partners happy in the bedroom…while making their own wildest fantasies come true.

Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things: Who am I? And, what the hell are you doing here? Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls. You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot. Go ahead, try it out on your tongue. F*ck. F***ck. Ok, good. Now where were we? If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle. For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I? Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.

And I turn housewives into whores. Now…who’s first?

3 Rating

I didn’t know what to think about the book’s blurb but trust me when I say I was intrigued. This is different from normal blurb but it was quite fitting for this plot! I honestly had a hard time rating this book. I do not know how I should feel about it. I know many readers adored this novel and I see why but I just was not won over by this book as I thought I should be.

I did find that this book was an okay read, I mean I can’t state otherwise or it will be a huge lie. It is always refreshing to read in a male’s POV. I don’t read a lot of books that is in a male’s POV.  Justice Drake is an interesting character, quite believable and he was not boring at all. Sadly it took me longer than I thought it would to warm up to him fully. Also I did not like Ally at first. Sadly I felt like the first half dragged a bit. I kept turning the page hoping for something fun and hot to happen between Ally and Justice. It just seemed to take forever. What I did enjoy was the two together and they had great chemistry. I liked that Justice liked Ally for who she was and he did not want to change her with his goofiness and all.

I just found that Taint was a bit unrealistic. I mean in what world it would be okay if your husband sends his wife away for six weeks to get sex lessons from a total stranger. If I were that women then I would divorce my husband as soon he made that suggestion. All in all I found Taint a okay read. Did I hate it? No but I did not love it and that was a bummer because I wanted to love it.

About The Author

JessicaPrince

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Dream Cast

It makes me laugh every time I get this question. I don’t ever think of a dream cast but if I had to choose:

Angel- I would love if Tom Hardy played him (just need him to look younger)

Jasmine- Shay Mitchell (Emily from Pretty Little Liars lol)

Chase- Alex Pettyfer

Kris- Rachel McAdams (lol this is an inside joke amongst me and my bff)

About the author

IMG_0720My name is Nicole Banks. I was born Aug 4th (Hello my fellow Leo’s lol) I’ve lived in New York City all my life and I love it here. It’s not what it use to be but, it’s still pretty dope.

I love the warm weather and just being near the water. I think every problem can be solved with either yoga, tea or a quick nap. (Nothing is too big that those three things can’t solve)

I like animals way more then people, cats especially. I think they’re my kindred spirits. If I could I would have a sanctuary built just for them. (I’m probably going to be that crazy lady with ten cats when I’m wrinkled and grey).

I can survive off of pizza and pasta and I’m a coffee addict. I have so much caffeine in my system I can’t have coffee after a certain time or I’ll be up half the night lol.

While I’m a writer, music is my first love. Books are a second love of mine. I believe music heals your soul in ways nothing else can. I use music as my muse to write. I believe every song is just a story waiting to be told outside of the five minute mark.

I published my first book Shattered in 2013 and it’s the first book in my Shattered Hearts Series. The second book Into Pieces was published on June 30th 2015. I’m currently working on the next installment in the series.

Excerpt
Her brow twitches. “I can’t do this. I’m sorry.” She steps away, heading for the door.

Lunging from the chair, I catch her shoulder and spin her to face me. “Can’t do what? Why are you running?”

“Because being around you makes me feel things, and I know it’s wrong to.”

“Ramona, you need to tell me,” I plead, heart beating erratically. “What kind of ‘things’ are you feeling?” I need to know if they’re the same.

“Like you could be something incredible for me. But . . . ”

God, she’s killing me. “But?”

“It’s not the right time.” She smiles softly.

A beat passes with us staring at one another. I don’t want the moment to end. I don’t want her to walk away. “Do you love him?” My tongue is thick in my mouth.

She shakes her head, smiling, yet her eyes are sad . . . so damn sad. “Not like you think—that’s the problem.”

MY THOUGHTS:

4 star review

This book was a really enjoyable read. It was angsty and suspenceful. There was times that I was sitting on the edge of my seat. This book is about a guy named Ethan who lost his wife a year ago but on the annivesary of her death he got a envelope full of information. In that evelope was pictures of Rachel his wife. She was alive and he wanted her back so he went to his brothers who owns a company called KGI. His brothers wanted him to work at KGI for a while but he was never up for it. Ethan became a shell of a man after her thought that Rachel was dead, but the moment he saw that it might not be true, he started having hope and started fighting for her safety again.

“Never be afraid to tell me anything,” he whispered against her hair. “No matter how ashamed you might feel. I’ll never judge you, Rachel. I love you.”

Later on he found out that even though he has her back, her life is still in danger. She cant remember a lot about her life but she is slowly getting her memories back. I really liked this book but for me the book was missing something. The susoence in this book was alright but I would have liked a little more suspence. What I do know is that something like that can happen to anyone in real life and the way they made it stop was the right way to go. One thing I can complain about is how the book ended. The ending just did not feel like an ending for me, the ending needed something more. The author is a good writer becaeuse I loved that this book kept my attention most of the time. I never thought this book to be boring but it would have been nice of there was more suspence. I liked the emotion in this book and that you dont get your ,memories back with a wave of a wand.

“Is there something wrong?” he asked.
She gave a short negative motion with her head. And then words, so sweet, like a cool northern breeze blowing off the lake. “You could hold me now.”
It was almost his undoing.
“Ah baby.”

I would say that you should read this book because I know I’m goin to read the rest of the series. Maybe in the rest of the series I will find the books more suspenceful. I especially want to read more about Rusty.


“Trying to drown me woman?”
‘You can’t drown a SEAL,’ she said. ‘How embarrassing would that be?’
‘God yes. Shoot me, hang me, let me die of infection from a hangnail, but don’t let me die in the water. They’d send me to hell on principle.”
