Welcome to the Candy shop

Where poison never tasted so sweet...

In the high-stakes world of sexpionage, the women of the Candy shop are at the top of their game.

Femmes Fatales who play by their own rules

You’re either innocent or evil, the victim or the soon to be avenged.

But with the justice system wrapped up in red tape, she has seen too many criminals slip through the cracks unpunished.

That’s when Dulce steps in.

She can’t be bought, persuaded, or coerced and she’s never failed to catch her mark.

But falling in love is a trap Dulce never saw coming.

Now black and white have turned her world a murky gray.

And the ones she loves could be the very people she’s hunting.

Walking away isn’t an option.

Pulling the trigger, her only way out.

But will she survive with her heart intact?

Or will it cost Dulce her life?

Authors note: Dulce is a collector of peen meaning the lucky lady ends up living the dream with a peen for every occasion. If you are looking for a straight-up M/F romance you might want to check out one of my other books. However, if you like your bananas by the bunch then please follow me down the rabbit hole.

Triggers: This book is not a particularly dark romance however it does contain some dark themes so please proceed with caution. Due to its content, this book is only suitable for people over the age of eighteen.

Dulce is a hired assassin and lady of “wiles” who uses her assets to get close to men who need to be “taken care of.”

While on a job things go wrong for her and she meets her match, in Dimitri. Now in a lifestyle that’s maybe more than she asked for with Dimitri at her side will her heart be her downfall or will it be her salvation?

This is book 1 in the Dulce series of books. Can’t wait to read book two.

Series: Itty-Bitty Delights, Book 5
Author: Alex Grayson
Genre: Step-brother/Step-sister &
Best Friend Romance
Release Date: May 19, 2022
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions

One is my step-brother and one is my best friend.

It’s wrong to want them both.

But how do I choose, when together, they give me so much more than when they’re apart?

I guess the better question is, do I have to make a choice?

Is it really so wrong when it feels so right?

Sometimes doing taboo things is worth the risk.

Doing Taboo Things is a novella and can be read in two or three hours.

Who says you can’t have fun with your two hot best friends? Rayn’s problematic living conditions turned erotic in what lie ahead. Reed and Jamison always had an attraction to her, but when they discover something in her nightstand, all bets were off and their future only looked brighter!!

Doing Taboo Things is my favorite in Alex Grayson’s Itty-Bitty Delights series. These novellas bring me life! Sometimes I want to read, but don’t want a long novel. Doing Taboo Things can be read within a couple of hours. So…grab your kindle, one-click this baby, and get ready to be delighted.

The Project by R.L. Mathewson: Release Blitz + Review

Title: The Project
Author: R.L. Mathewson 
Release Date: May 20, 2022

From New York Time’s bestselling author of the Neighbor from Hell series comes a heartwarming romantic comedy about the only thing that matters when you’re about to lose everything that you’ve ever wanted.

The one person that you can’t live without.

She should probably mention that she had no idea what she was doing, but since that would probably result in her new boss, Devyn MacGregor, CEO of Carta Hotels and the incredibly handsome man that didn’t look like he knew how to smile, firing her, Andi Dawson decided that it would be in her best interest to keep that fact to herself. After years of doing a job that had slowly destroyed her will to live, she needed a change, something different, something that gave her a clue about what she was supposed to do with her life, but more importantly, she needed to figure out how she was supposed to keep a secret that could destroy the only thing that mattered to her.

Just. One. More. Time.

Devyn was so close to having everything that he’d ever wanted when everything suddenly went to hell. He should have seen this coming, should have stayed focused, and he really should stop thinking about the small woman that he should probably fire. He had four months to fix this and he had no idea how he was going to do it, but he knew that he was about to make the biggest mistake of his life.

Andi meets Devyn when she lands a new job as his personal assistant at Carta Hotels and Devyn is grumpy, to say the least!

But she's got a job to do and Andi's not one to be shy. She walks into his business and his life.

In order to be the assistant Devyn needs and to help him with his issues with the company, they spend a LOT of time together. She is pretty much glued to him. It's this closeness that brings them together personally.

The story is fantastic, as is the writing. It's sweet, fun & sexy and a very quick read. Loved the side of mystery too. Would be a perfect vacay read.

The Escape (Secrets of the Harper Sisters, Book Two) by A.K. Steel: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Review

Title: The Escape
Series: Secrets of the Harper Sisters, Book Two
Author: A.K. Steel
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 18, 2022
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions

He tells me I’m his perfect escape. But not every escape goes to plan…

I’m Jasmine Harper. Smart, driven, and a total perfectionist in everything I do. I know what I want from my life and how to get it. Everything that is, except the perfect man. No one I date compares to the impossible standard I’ve built up in my head. I’m a romantic at heart. I’m sure he exists somewhere; I just haven’t found him yet.

And then, in the most unlikely of places, there he is.

The location? After Dark – an exclusive sex club catering to the rich and famous. The man? Axel Stone – a gorgeous billionaire MMA fighter with a dangerous past. The sex? The kinkiest and best of my life.

When we’re together, his troubles disappear. And even though my heart says run, my body says stay. But who will get the final say when his past resurfaces, forcing him to fight for everything? Will he lose it all or can we pull off the perfect escape?

I really liked The Escape. It was just so good!!! I loved how the prim and proper Jasmine is talked into going to the club and working there. She meets Axel and he finds her at the club and claims her as his. I loved that she finally breaks free of herself and embraces the woman she wants to be. She then gets kidnapped by someone you wouldn't imagine, which is crazy because this person is trying to force her to marry him! The ending is insane and now I need to know what happens to Jasmine's sister in the next book. Overall a great story!

I feel dizzy. I accepted his offer. Axel Stone's outrageous offer of ten grand. Yeah, the club takes their cut, but I still end up with a lot. I would have slept with him for nothing. He's all kinds of swoony, and I’ve thought about him a lot since our coffee chat in my breakroom on Monday. But as I walk toward him now, I can barely breathe. I'm lightheaded in a way I have never been before. In a room full of crazy-beautiful women, why would he choose me? If Maeve didn't have me hooked by the arm, directing me through the mix of people, I would be stuck on the spot still gaping like a cod.
We come to a stop just before him and his equally good-looking friend. His stance is powerful, and in that charcoal suit, he's the type of guy that in any normal club would have a swam of scantily clad women trying for his attention. I have to wonder why he needs to pay for the company of anyone.
His stare over me is commanding, and I peer up at him through long dark lashes, wondering what on earth he thinks of this version of me. I'm waxed and plucked and made up to perfection, with fake lashes and all; even I have to admit that when they finished with me, I was glowing with a sexy kind of radiance I didn't even know I had in me. And the dress that Maeve lent me, it's insane, all shimmery silver with a low back and mini skirt. I'm at a loss for what to say to him in this very unique situation, so I offer a shy smile instead. I had trouble talking to him normally, but like this now… I'm screwed.
Maeve has dropped my arm and is chatting to his friend in her usual flirtatious manner when a hot guy is around. She appears to know him. I'm guessing, by the way, she touches his arm and hangs on his every word. I have to wonder how many men here she knows intimately.
Axel leans in closer, dropping his mouth to my ear. I'm grateful he’s happy to start the conversation. "I thought you were the good sister," he whispers, his question playful, and it sends a shiver through me. The good sister. That was me.
I swallow the lump that has formed in my throat and try to find my voice. "Maybe I want to try something new for a while. See how it fits. Being good was getting me nowhere." As the words leave my lips, I know I'm playing a dangerous game, but I'm beyond caring. I'm committed to this now. Even standing here before this sexy man, all dolled up like this, is making me feel more alive than I have in such a long time. I want to go down the rabbit hole that is this strange new world and see where it gets me. Good or bad, I want the experience.
"That sounds like a very good idea, gorgeous." His eyes flash with dark lust, and I feel my insides clench. "Would you like another drink?" he offers.

I'm a contemporary romance author my novels feature swoony men, twists and turns, and always a happily ever after.

I'm a busy mother of three pre-teens, who lives on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I have always been a creative soul, with a background in fashion design, interior decoration, and floristry. I currently run a business as a wedding florist and stylist but have always had a love for reading romance novels, something about how the story can transport you to another world entirely.

So in 2020, I decided to jot down some of my own ideas for romance stories, always with a happily ever after of course, and from that came my debut novel Always Fraser. From that moment I haven't looked back, writing has become a part of me. I have a long list of stories plotted and I look forward to being able to share all my stories with you soon. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I loved writing them, xx
