Love Displayed (Pure Sin Trilogy, Book 2) by Thetta James: Release Blitz + Giveaway + Review

Title: Love Displayed
Series: Pure Sin Trilogy, Book Two
Author: Thetta James
Genre: Erotic Suspense Romance
Release Date: July 27, 2021

April Young's dark past makes her want nothing to do with men. Instead, she finds comfort in owning her own pleasure—even in public places.

It's empowering and helps her forget.

What she didn't count on was Javier Perez trying to force his way into her heart, claiming her in a way no man has.

Javier Perez is a loner. He's always thought love is a distraction and makes you weak.

Until her.

April catches his eye, and his walls begin to crumble. Pulling her out of her past is one of the hardest missions he's ever encountered, but he's determined to prove to her that love conquers all.

Love Displayed is an Erotic Suspense Novel with graphic sexual scenes that may offend some readers. This book contains sexually explicit language, adult themes, the use of sex toys/equipment, and descriptions of rape/violence. This book contains content that is not suitable for readers under the age of 18. Please read with caution.

I really liked Love Displayed. I loved how April overcame being a victim and decided she was going to be a survivor, instead of a victim. Javi was so patient and waited for April to come around. Giving her a necklace that tracked her, showed not only that he wanted to protect her, but how much he loved her. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a man like that?

The writing and details in this book made me feel as if I was right there with the characters. I know that I will definitely be reading more from Thetta James. She is an amazing author and really knows how to captivate her audience.

"Oh my !! I'm stunned speechless!! Love displayed was emotional, intense, suspenseful, and exciting! Thetta James takes you on an emotional Journey" - Review

“Love Displayed is not just a story about finding love. It's about connections and friendship. Rebirth and finding yourself. It's about empowerment and survival. Finding your voice and following your heart....” - Goodreads Reviewer

“Javi and April's story was a slow burn, but once her fears were confronted, it turned explosive!” - Goodreads Reviewer

“Awestruck!!! Author Thetta James gives us an intense prologue from the beginning. Think Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, with an addicting love story behind the crimes, to include a crazed and obsessed psychopath!” - Goodreads Reviewer

I've enjoyed books for as long as I can remember.
Reading allows you to expand your mind and make you say, what if? Four years ago, I became a part of the Book World as a Blogger and The Erotic Book Review was born.

I love reading and listening to all genres, but I'm very drawn to Romance on the kinky side of things. I believe pursuing your passion brings out your creativity and allows endless possibilities to come forth. Taking a reader on a journey that forces them to crossover into your world is magic. My love for stories has inspired me to write and share my words. I hope readers enjoy them as much as I loved creating them.

I live in North Georgia and I've been married to the love of my life for almost 29 years. We're parents of 5 adults and we have 9 grandchildren. We drive a Big Rig for a living and travel the entire US. When I'm not driving, I love writing, reading, and hanging out in my Private Playroom on FB. I love meeting new people and enjoy learning about other cultures. I love watching football and binge watching TV shows.

One quote I live by.."Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”

No Rep (Madd Crossfit Series, Book 1) by Lani Lynn Vale: Release Blitz + Review

Title: No Rep
Series: Madd Crossfit Series, Book One
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: July 27, 2021
Cover: Golden Czermak at FuriousFotog
Review Source: Uplifting Author Services

Taos was tired.

Tired of everything that came with living. Not to the point where he was suicidal or anything, but tired enough that he just didn’t give a crap anymore.

He’d seen all the ugliness this world had to offer due to his job as a police officer for way too many damn years of his less than stellar life. After finding a way to sustain his spending habits that didn’t include having criminals point guns at his face, he quits without a backward glance.

Only, he just can’t step away from old habits.

Old habits that have to do with a beautiful young woman that makes his heart feel like it isn’t nearly as broken as it is.

Fran has experienced more than her fair share of crap. After an attack that nearly took her life, she stays hidden in her house, fearful that stepping out of her comfort zone will be the final nail in her coffin.

Then her sister forces her to face her fears, and she joins Madd CrossFit.

There, she meets the man that saved her life a year ago, and realizes rather quickly that he doesn’t even realize who he is to her.

He’s everything she ever thought a man should be and wants nothing to do with her.

Maybe she’ll have to give him a reason to look her way.

And damned if she doesn’t find a way to do it.

She didn’t plan on nearly getting killed for that to happen, though.

At least not again.

I think I have found my new favorite LLV series. Madd CrossFit is just amazing!! There is so much mystery, passion, and depth to this story. It’s like we get two for one with this book.

Taos is an overworked, under-appreciated ex-police officer turned detective. One case, in particular, had him walking away from the line of duty. He connected with a woman who had been attacked and it haunted him. Que Fran. A beautiful woman who was scared of her own shadow. A woman who had Taos in her sights, but felt as if she was invisible to him. Once she realizes that he runs CrossFit, she’s intrigued and now wants to get in shape. Taos knows that he can be someone that she can rely on and hopes that she will, in time, give him a chance. Get ready for some steam, because it’s off the charts! This duo is a match made in Heaven.

This is a series that I know I will want to own the paperback of and add to my shelves. If you’re looking for something out of the box and not the same story that’s been told over and over, then pick up One Rep. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Acts of Mercy: A Stepbrother Romance (Men of WRATH, Book 5) by Eleanor Aldrick: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Act of Mercy: A Stepbrother Romance
Series: Men of WRATH, Book 5
Author: Eleanor Aldrick
Genre: Taboo Romance
Publish Date: July 27, 2021
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions


I'm f*cked.

Broken down on the side of the road wasn’t how I pictured my first stint with independence and calling my mother to let her know I already need help is completely off the table.
Throwing insult to injury, Mr. Tall Dark and F*ck Me has come to my rescue, strolling in like some Knight in shining armor.
Hudson Maxwell, with his chiseled jaw and striking grey eyes, looks under the hood of my car like some sort of Greek God, sent to test my will.
His wicked mouth flirts with me, saying all the words any girl would want to hear. Especially me. He’s been my unattainable crush. The man I could never have.
But now? He doesn’t know who I am, fully grown and far from the little girl he last saw.
So as he continues his assault on my libido—unaffected by the rules that would keep us apart—I have to ask, do I stop this charade, or do I cave in and taste him just this once?

One moment is all it takes.
One move to wreck your world.
Alyssa Rogers, with her hypnotic green eyes and luscious lips, was that for me. The siren that sang me straight to my demise.
I should’ve seen her for what she was. A trickster and a thief.
But as the walls cave in, our forced proximity forcing us closer and closer, the answer becomes clear.
Come hell or high water, Alyssa Rogers needs to go.

What to expect:
♥ stepbrother
♥ age-gap
♥ forbidden

Acts of Mercy is a book with everything you shouldn’t like but do. It has steam, drama, loads of passion, and oh so taboo. Lusting after her step-brother is a hard no, but Alyssa can’t seem to find fault in it. She has wanted him for as long as she can remember but never acted on it because he is her family, after all. However, when Alyssa sees an opportunity to sneak into Hudsons pants, will she take the blessing in disguise or will he see right through her guise and shoot her down?

This is the 5th book in the Men of WRATH series, although it is not necessary to read the others beforehand. Acts of Mercy is a stand-alone, although I will now be going back and reading the others since this one was so great. Eleanor Aldrick did an amazing job at keeping me entertained and turning the pages as quickly as possible. 4 stars!!

Writing about yourself is hard. Writing about yourself in the third person is even harder. 

Instead of giving myself all kinds of accolades and touting my writing prowess (or lack thereof), I'll just share some of the bits that make me who I am. Sound good? Good.

Reading has always been a big part of my life. Growing up, my mother would walk into my room well into the wee hours of the morning only to have to tell me to put my books away and sleep.

If you're a bibliophile like me, I'm sure you can relate.

I never stopped reading nor did my love for it diminish. As time passed, my reading tastes evolved and I found myself devouring romance novels left and right (find me on Goodreads). So naturally, when I found myself unfulfilled with my learned profession, I turned to write the books I loved to read.

It started as a hobby but with my husband's encouragement, it grew into what it is today, the start of my new, and very much loved career.

I hope that my story serves as an inspiration and that regardless of where you are in life, you are able to follow your dreams and give yourself your very own happily ever after.

I don’t need a man in my life to be happy…
What I need? A vacation.
Vitamin Sea? Yes, please!
The charming, handsome stranger sitting next to me on the plane talking all the way to paradise? Perfect start to this trip. I can resist him and his smoldering looks, killer smile, and confident attitude.
Until I figure out that he’s my neighbor at the resort. His washboard abs and that perfect V…I don’t think I can resist him for a whole week.
Giving in to temptation is easy. The souvenir he leaves me with? Not so much.
What happens when the thrill of paradise is washed away?
Will he go, or can I convince him to stay?

Doctor Arrogance is a contemporary romance inspired by all books in the Cocky Bastard Series.

Really great book!!! Good story, Good characters, Good attitude!
These two doctors - one is a vet - are literally made for each other. They share all the same passions but with enough differences to make them interesting.
Reading about their antics and going on their adventure with them was very entertaining.
I loved the back story and how they get together very much. The writing was awesome and the “other” characters were also awesome! Wonderful quick summer read too!
