✿ Review ✿





Incendiary is the second book in the Phoenix Rising Rock Band and is the conclusion to Sloane and Georgie's story. It must be read after Inferno.

Incendiary begins where Inferno ended: Georgie just had her baby and Sloane is out of jail.

Georgie and Sloane are now reunited but things aren't the way they used to be. Georgie feels lonely and forgotten and Sloane hates Georgie because she told the police that he raped her. But as time passes, Sloane realizes that maybe Georgie didn't do anything wrong, that maybe she is being set up. They also must find out who is trying to terrorize Georgie and deal with their families.




After finishing Inferno I really wanted to read Incendiary and it didn't disappoint. Mysteries and secrets were unveiled and I couldn't believe who was messing with Georgie and Sloane. The story is amazing and it hooks the reader from the first page. It takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.




I loved Georgie! She is young, but she is a fighter and a survivor. She's a natural mother, even though sometimes she struggled with Bryn. She felt alone and felt that no one was on her side.

In the beginning of the book I really hated Sloane. He didn't believe Georgie and wouldn't let her explain what happened. But he saw the light!!! He still is a broken man because of what happened with his father and his sister, but his love for Georgie and Bryn makes him a better man.

Cassandra... Well, she was still a bitch and had the ending she deserved.

I hope in the future Abby gets her own book. I loved her and loved her relationship with Georgie.




Kathryn Kelly wrote an amazing book. She created a fantastic story and deliciously complicated characters that makes the reader fall in love with them (Georgie and Sloane) or really hate them (Cassandra). I would love to read more about Georgie and Sloane and I really need to read the Death Dwellers MC series (they make a huge appearence in Incendiary and I really loved Cash)!






✿ Excerpt ✿


The moment she slides in next to me, my senses flare to life. The sweet scent of vanilla overwhelms me. Whether it's my imagination or not, I breathe in for a deeper whiff. I've thrived on this memory for almost eight months. A baby's gurgle and soft coo filters into my ears. My daughter. The child Georgie had for me. Primal instinct roars though me, and I ball my fists. I came in her and filled her with this beautiful baby. Wherever she went, she carried a part of me inside of her and nurtured it as only she could, with an enduring innocence and unconditional love. "Sloane," Georgie whispers again, and her voice cracks, breaking the spell she's cast on me and reminding me of her duplicity. Loneliness, fear, and regret, are infused in her voice and written on her face. I'm so fucking furious with her, I'm afraid of what I'll do if I respond. I ignore her, until my temper is under control. No one knows I'm in the car, but the Paps are out in force. Kiln didn't hide, and the location of the hospital Georgie was staying at has been plastered everywhere. Speculation will jump to me, and if I'm somehow involved. No matter. I wanted Georgie and knew from the moment I reached my room last night I'd have her at my side. After Zelda left, I sat in Mom's garden for hours, contemplating my life and unable to step back into a world of drugs. But her memory isn't what kept me from going for drugs. It was Georgie. Her face. Her taste. Every inch of her is embedded into my psyche. I spent the night considering my next move. With each breath I took, I thought of her. Until the obvious conclusion arose and I agreed with my cook. I needed to see her. I had to get her. I wouldn't rest until I looked into her deceitful eyes and heard exactly why she went to the fucking cops and the goddamn media. I also knew there was no fucking way I could stay in that mausoleum without her. Therefore, whether she wants to be with me or not, I intend to keep her at my side until I'm satisfied she can't do any further damage. And I've gotten repayment from her for the hell she's put me through. I owe her.

Inferno
Phoenix Rising Rock Band #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm a rocker with the eyes of the world on me. Waiting for my triumph or my downfall... just waiting. Most of my life is in my hands. My destiny? That’s another story. My destiny isn't as debt free.

My band, Phoenix Rising, arrives in Houston to cut a new album. Before we perform our first concert in the city and I choose my groupies of the night, I'm thrust into debauchery. Sleeping with a gorgeous woman twenty years older than me has its perks, especially when her husband orchestrated the encounter and eagerly watches. To me, performing is performing. If a man wants to share his wife, who am I to stop him?

Unfortunately for me, I don't make a clean getaway as I leave the McCall mansion. Georgie, their sixteen-year-old daughter, is in the midst of her own intrigue, sneaking home in the middle of the night after an evening of drugs and sex with her older brother's best friend. In her, I see me. She’s lost and drifting. Her hedonistic parents insist she's old enough to make her own decisions. Instead of time and love, they give her money and things.

I'm a twenty-five-year old international superstar and I know better. I'm cocky and arrogant. I know it so I own it. Somehow, I've always bested the fates. I have all to lose — my reputation, my career, and my freedom. Her mother's jealousy forces my hand and I take Georgie on the tour.

This is our story and our secret relationship and the destruction of my life. You know the adage about secrets? Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead. Wise words from a wise man. If only I had listened. Secrets have a way of revealing themselves in the harshest way.

♡ Blog Tour ♡ My Stranger (My Stalker #1) by Lola White @steamyreadslist @onceuponanalpha




Is pleasure addictive? If one person lines up perfectly with all your deepest desires, all your kinkiest kinks, would you choose him, in spite of how bad he might be?

My Stranger is about a woman who is sucked into the orbit of a Bad Boy Alpha Male, but like all bad boys, there is a deep, dark streak of the romantic in him. But her stranger wields a darkness that goes beyond normal behavior. Confidence hints at aggression, intelligence turns to manipulation, care is hidden within control, and persistence slides into obsession. And like all of us who fall for the bad boys, AJ can't help but wonder if she’s the woman who will save him from himself, if she's the woman who can inspire a change in his behavior.

"You're not like any other woman I've ever known." His rusty voice turned downright corroded. "Maybe you can't be soiled. Maybe your light can't be dimmed. Maybe you would have been my fucking salvation, if you weren't trying so goddamned hard to keep your distance."

Would you fall for that line? There's no shame if your answer is yes. Lots of us have fallen for lines like that. It's that damned romantic streak, reeling us in, tying us in knots. The possibility of winning the ultimate prize, dangling before us like a fat, juicy carrot.

AJ's girlfriend wants her to have one last fling with a man to get it all out of her system before they take their relationship to the next level. So when AJ feels a man's strong arms wrap around her in the dark, and hears her girlfriend's pet name for her fall from his lips, she willingly submits to her stranger — and only finds out how dangerous he is after it's too late to stop her addiction to the pleasure he gives her.






My Stranger
My Stalker #1
by
Lola White







A dark erotic tale of lust and lies, and a truth more dangerous than the ecstasy she discovers in her stranger's bed.

My girlfriend wanted me to have one last fling with a man before we took our relationship to the next level. When my stranger stole me away and gave me pleasure beyond anything I'd ever known, I thought it was all her idea. But my stranger wasn't what I thought he was.

AJ isn't ashamed to admit she's a lover of many things — men, women and various combinations thereof. She's a free spirit with a rough past that left her with a need to be taken care of, in spite of her trust issues. For the first time in her life, AJ is ready to commit to one person, but her girlfriend isn't certain that AJ can be faithful and suggests one last fling to make sure she’s ready for a future together.

When AJ feels a man's strong arms wrap around her in the dark, and hears her girlfriend's pet name for her fall from his lips, she willingly submits to her stranger — and only finds out how dangerous he is after it's too late to stop her addiction to the pleasure he gives her.

Warning: This story is dark erotica and contains situations that may be uncomfortable for certain readers, including Stockholm Syndrome, minor knife play, bondage, anal sex and fisting.

The lights in my apartment were off. I flicked the switch, toggled it a bit the way people do when they think willpower alone can bring their dead bulbs back to life, but no dice. If I had known, I'd have picked some up while I was at the grocery store. Or, at the very least, I'd have come home before the sunset so I didn't have to search for replacement bulbs by the weak light of the streetlamp outside.

I was on my tip-toes reaching for the back of the top shelf in my bedroom closet, pretty certain I had a box of twenty watts up there somewhere. Not ideal, but it would do until the morning. I didn’t hear a damned thing.

Massive arms wrapped around my rib cage. A big, hot body pressed against my back.

I jerked, but I couldn't scream as a massive hand covered my mouth and held my surprise inside. My heart stuttered then pumped harder, my spine prepared itself for a struggle.

Then, "Shh, Ashley Jeanine, I won't hurt you. Be calm."

A smooth jaw swept over my temple as the unfamiliar voice — a rusty, deep voice — rolled over my ears. Was I calm? Not remotely, but the name the intruder used impinged on my senses and made me hesitate long enough that he removed his hand from my mouth.

"Did Sam set this up?"

"This has been in the works for a long time, beautiful." Cloth slithered over my face and cinched tight around my eyes. "A real long time."

Reflex had me trying to put my hands to the blindfold, but he caught my arms and pulled my wrists together behind my back. He was close enough for his body's heat to cover me like a blanket. I held my breath and took stock of the situation, unsure whether or not to be mad at Sam.

The guy was big, brawny, and I wondered if he was another bounty hunter, a colleague of hers, though I wouldn't have thought she'd set this up with someone she knew. Unless she trusted him a lot. His smooth-shaven jaw was soft against my cheek as he leaned over my shoulder and dragged his nose over my skin. I could hear him breathing me in. His hands found my hips and kneaded, and I relaxed without realizing.

Sam would get an earful later, but I could appreciate the scenario she set up. I had to admit it was hot. Maybe it was wrong of me, but a flash of excitement took hold of all the nerves below my waist. Here I was, in the dark and vulnerable while a big man, a stranger, tied me up and blindfolded me, his raspy voice stroking both my senses and my imagination.

Sam knew how much I liked to be tied up and I knew how uncomfortable it was for her to do it. It didn't surprise me that she'd found someone who could, and since he'd used Sam's pet name for me, all I had to do was relax and enjoy. I hadn't thought to go through with her fling idea, but I was here, he was here, and my body was growing softer by the second.

He flicked the buttons of my jeans and they sagged open enough to let his hand slide in. Dude wasn't wasting any time, so I shifted my stance and leaned back against his big chest. With my eyes covered, my sense of touch was enhanced, and I tracked his firm slide south with straining nerves and unwavering concentration.

His fingertip was hot against me. Striking sparks, he circled my clit with just that one, avoiding full contact and making me suck in an expectant breath. Over and around until my nerves were blazing, silently pleading. I arched lightly, pressing my shoulders back against the wall of his muscle, but I didn't beg.

Hell, no, I didn't beg.

I would have said he was teasing if his breathing wasn't so ragged and his touch wasn’t so rough. His wrist shook against my lower belly and his pinky finger jerked rhythmically high against my right thigh. Sam must have set this up a long time ago if this guy was so ready for it. Or maybe he liked the idea of tying a girl up in the darkness of her own home, standing behind her and getting her off with just a single finger.

I'm not ashamed to say that's exactly what he was doing, either. I started rolling my hips as he traced my slit, up and down, over and over, harder and harder with each pass. Tingles were taking over and my clit swelled — I could feel it and I liked it, the sense of anticipation that built a mental pressure just as much as a physical one.

He found some magic spot just to the right of my clit and stroked in such a way my hips bucked sideways. He growled in my ear and I figured he'd liked it as much as I did. Then his hot palm covered the whole upper half of my mound as his finger tracked back down, and thrust into my pussy.

His dark chuckle invaded my ear. The slow glide was frustrating and I had an immediate flashback to Sam on our last night in the ski lodge, using her fingers and nothing else, even knowing I needed more.

"There's time, beautiful." Again his nose dragged over my cheek. "But I'm going to wind you up, give you just enough pleasure that you can't sit still. You'll scream and beg and cry for more. And then I'll fill your cunt with the biggest cock you've ever had."

They all said that same thing, I swear to God. But there was something about this big stranger at my back that had me wondering, hoping, anticipating. His finger was thrusting in and out and providing just enough sensation against the ring of muscle at my entrance that my lust was leaping forward. A gentle tingle, a need for more and my pussy was soft and clenching and trying to suck his knuckles deeper.

"I never beg," I told him breathlessly.

"You will."







Lola White writes what she writes, which is erotic fiction. Sometimes horror, sometimes paranormal, sometimes romance. It's all sexy, but never predictable because she likes to twist reality at its edges in her stories. She likes delving into the emotions of her characters, finding their strengths and weaknesses, and seeing (and showing) how they get themselves out of whatever trouble has found them — if they can.

Genre: Erotic Romance | Paranormal Romance

Release Date: June 30, 2015

Cover Designer: LM Creations




✾ Synopsis ✾


Lucien and Dahlia can't stay away from one another, so, why fight it? Giving in to their feelings, they vow to start anew. However, a surprise visit from Lucien's mysterious cousin, Selene, puts a damper on the passionate reunion.

Who is this disarming woman? Is she like Lucien, something... different? And why is she so set on getting Dahlia out of Lucien's life?

Faced with Selene's disapproval, Lucien finds he is forced to unveil more of his power to Dahlia, thus placing her in a perilous situation.

The Laid Bare story continues, but not without a cost to all those involved.

Volume 2 of the Laid Bare novella series.












✿ Excerpt ✿


Ignoring the urge to plunge into her and fuck her like the beast I really was, I lowered myself to the bed, my body grazing slowly over her soft skin. The barely-there contact made her whimper, especially when I leaned down and kissed her softly... slowly... and deeply.

"Oh, Lucien," she cried out when I broke away. "Please, please just take me."

"I thought you wanted me to taste you?" I teased.

I liked driving her a little crazy. I wanted Dahlia panting, writhing, and craving me as much as I craved her. Of course, I hid my need better than she.

She wiggled beneath me, trying in vain to line her pussy up to my cock. Teasing her further, I kept shifting left and right, always just out of her reach. In the process, her dewy pussy lips brushed over my cock, again and again, leaving wet marks like kisses.

Fuck, it was driving me insane.

"Please," she pleaded, her breathing faster and faster. "You can do whatever you want to me, Lucien. Just make this, this need I'm feeling, stop."

It was rather consuming, I had to admit, this pull to one another. If it was hard for me, I could only imagine what it was like for her.

Indulging my curiosity — just briefly, I promised myself — I allowed myself in to her head, to experience what she was experiencing.

And, oh, it was incredible.

"Oh, Dahlia," I breathed out, amazed. I felt how much she ached for me, and it overwhelmed even me.

Kissing, nipping, and licking my way down her supple body, I exhaled in relief as I pressed my tongue to her throbbing sex. She was delicious, better than any woman I'd ever had before, and I licked and lapped at her folds with abandon.

Dahlia moaned and raked her hands through my hair. She grabbed hold and pulled gently at first. But then she screamed out, wrenching at the roots as she pulsed and shuddered beneath the relentless assault from my hungry mouth.

I knew she'd never come so hard, so intensely, and I felt her reach a new level of euphoria.

"I'm dizzy," she mumbled, confirming what I already knew.

Hell, I was a little dizzy myself, drunk with her.

I rose to my knees and stared down at what was mine. This woman, open and bared for me — and only me — was beautiful in a way that transcended words.

The Pledge
by
Laura Ward & Christine Manzari

Release Date: July 27, 2015

Genre: NA

Cover Designer: Okay Creations, Sarah Hansen





✾ Synopsis ✾


Taren needs a do-over. She's decided the best way to put the high school bullies behind her is to pledge a Taylor-Swift-lip-syncing, beer-guzzling, sorority. Sisterhood helps Taren find the acceptance she's always craved, but not the love she needs.

Alec wants freedom. To escape his father's iron fist and unrealistic expectations, he pledges a campus acrobatics club where he finds that drugs and alcohol aren't the only ways to get high. His addiction to danger helps him gain his independence, but it comes at a heavy price.

When the two cross paths, Alec fears his undeniable attraction to the party girl just might threaten everything he's worked so hard to earn. Taren hasn’t forgotten that Alec humiliated her back in high school, but she also can't deny the chemistry they share.

Alec and Taren have nothing in common, but fate is bound and determined to bring them together. They know falling in love is a risk, and yet it's too hard to ignore. When their worlds clash and they both end up suffering, will they fight to stay together? Or are some pledges too hard to keep?










✿ Excerpt ✿


"I dreamt about this." Alec dragged his fingertips down my neck and to my hair that lay splayed across his pillow. He leaned over me, and his weight rested on his forearms. "I pictured you just like this. Laying in my bed, your hair spread out on my pillow, your scent on my skin." He swallowed, his Adam's apple bobbing in his throat. "Your lips begging to be kissed." Alec slipped his tongue along my lower lip. "I missed your taste. I missed... you, Taren." He dipped his tongue inside my mouth, pulling me in for a deep, slow kiss.

The words coming from his lips were too much. I moaned into his mouth as emotion stung the corners of my eyes. He was hard as he pressed against me, and my eyelids fluttered shut as I lifted my hips into him. My hands ran all over his arms, and my fingers molded themselves to the muscles of his shoulders and back. I would never have enough time to feel him. Never.

Alec's kisses were eager, his lips pressing against mine with such intensity I hardly had time to catch my breath. He moved down, trailing his lips along my neck until he reached my chest. Every place he left a kiss felt hot, and I felt flushed.

"I missed the way you tuck your hair behind your ear when you're nervous." His lips branded my right shoulder. "I missed the way you smile when you know you're out-debating me." His mouth traced the words into my skin before leaving a scorching touch on my rib cage. "I missed the way you can get lost in a book and fall into its pages." His kiss settled between the swell of my breasts, and his breath feathered across my skin.

A tear rolled down my face as emotion overwhelmed me. I wasn't just another body. He saw me. The real me.

He looked up and propped himself up on his elbow. He reached up and wiped the tear away with his thumb. He left his hand on my face and gazed down me. "What's wrong?" His fingers stroked my cheek.

I closed my eyes, taking a deep, shaky breath. "I'm so happy we get a second chance." Another tear escaped me, and his face pinched as he reached up to wipe that one away, too.

"Second chances don't change the past. They just prove we can learn from our mistakes." He pressed his face into my neck, his mouth just below my ear. "I'm not the same guy I was in high school. I'm going to prove that to you."
