Blurb

We found each other where no else could.

Found a purpose. Found ourselves. Found love.

Again.

But then life got in the way.

Three years later and the people that we once were are nowhere to be found.

Can our love survive everything we've put it through?

Can we find a way back to each other...

Again?

Conclusion to the Captive Heart Duet.


My Review:

     I hate to say this again but I did not take the time and highlight my favorite quotes from this story. Once I started reading Found By Carrie Aarons I got lost in the story and I wanted to shut everything around me off. This story is the second book in the Captive Hearts series so you have to read Lost first and find out why Tucker and Charlotte's life has hit a wall of guilt and frustration. 

     Life has not been easy for Tucker after he has to do time for the crime he committed to not only to Charlotte but to himself. It did lead him to the love of his life but he is finding that the fear of judgement from people around him was something he wasn't prepared for. While Tucker is suffering an emotional battle, Charlotte has become stronger and wiser and life had to go on. Charlotte loves Tucker more than anything and she is prepared to take on whatever comes their way, but will her strength be enough to save their love? 

     Found is a emotional, sexy and heartbreaking story. After the addictive feeling of the first book Lost wore off, all my expectations of Found were not what I had expected. Leave it to Carrie Aarons to take this dramatic love story and add those realistic emotions that occur during a tragic experience and have you feel the emotions right along with the characters.  I found myself  feeling the desire and love that Tucker and Charlotte have for each other and tearing up for the hurt, guilt and the feeling of loneliness they both shared. I have to stop myself because I don't want to spoil anything and want you to experience this wonderfully written story for yourself.

Book Review for Sordid by Nikki Sloane

Sordid 
by Nikki Sloane


Blurb:
It took me years to find the courage to speak to Luka. He seemed exactly like me. Intelligent. Focused. Serious. But he’s not the man I imagined. His reality is cruel and dark. He traps me in his web, his power twisting tighter the more I struggle, until it’s hopeless. I can’t break free. As he drags me unwillingly into his filthy world, I can’t ignore the terrifying idea circling my mind. What if I belong here with him?   *WARNING. This book is meant for mature audiences and is a very dark erotic romance.
                             

   .
                             Favorite Quotes:

His tongue dipped into my mouth and was electric jolt straight between my legs.

Did he taste like tequila as he did to me, or could he also taste my lust? I had two years' worth, and this kiss broke the damn holding it back.

I was about to have sex for the first time by choice, even if that choice was twisted and warped.

I wanted what he was going to give me, and my body told him how ready I was.

                    My Review:

     When I think of a author for a hot, steamy, and over the top erotic story I think of Nikki Sloane. Well, now I have to say she just blew my mind with Sordid a dark, twisted, and sexually wild read. 

Luka Markovic has it all, he is intelligent, gorgeous, dark, dominate and has a strong family name that is intimidating to most. I found myself wanting to hate him, I was hypnotized to his darkness and I felt his struggle for wanting to love, protect, dominate, and punish the woman he has longed for. It takes one night of a mistake he can't take back and they find themselves victims to his father's need for control.  Ugh!!! I can't say more.

Addison is your college student with a need to be good at what she does, she is the perfect student, perfect daughter and has her heart set on medical school. It takes one night at a frat party to let her inhibitions down and have fun. Addison never  expected to run into Luka the TA she had a crush on. All I can say is the night is not as expected and their lives change. Addison will be tested and after all that Luka has in store for her will she be able to walk away from him? The connection they have is dark and not like any other, the sexually chemistry will have you needing a cold shower.

This story had me questioning myself, because how can I be in a love/hate relationship with a character as dominate and with a cruel sense of sexual empowerment? This story had me on the edge of my seat, I could not predict a ending that I thought I would be happy with and somehow Nikki Sloane made it happen. If dark and twisted is not your choice in books than this is not for you. I freaking loved it!!!

EXCERPT:
“So, Addison, we’re both stuck here for other people.” Luka took a step toward me, and even though there was still quite a bit of space left between us, his one small step felt enormous. Like he was now twice the size he’d been a second ago. My chest was beginning to feel warm, no doubt from the tequila. “How is it you remember my name?” “Probably for the same reason you remember mine.” That was incredibly doubtful, but I kept my face plain. “Calculus was that memorable for you?” “Yeah, it was. You were there every class, staring at me.” I inhaled sharply, mortified, and tore my gaze away. “I did not.” “Look at me.” His firm tone made it so there was no other option but to obey. When I did, his black eyes were focused and intense. “You stared when you didn’t think I could tell, but you weren’t very good at hiding it.” I opened my mouth to deny further, but he cut me off. “I was better than you. I made sure you never noticed I was looking.” My brain disconnected and thought ceased. “Why?” Luka’s hands rested casually on his hips. “Because a girl like you . . .” He scrubbed a hand over his mouth. He seemed to search for the right word, but not find it, and every drawn-out second that passed made it worse. Because a girl like you . . . Isn’t good enough. Rich enough. Smart enough. A girl like you isn’t experienced enough. “You shouldn’t be interested in a guy like me.” “What?” I was intelligent and well spoken, and yet I couldn’t choke out more than one word at a time. “I’m not a nice guy.” I swallowed hard. “Well . . .” How was I supposed to respond to that? “I’m sure that’s not true.” Luka remained like a statue. He didn’t argue or defend himself, and tension wound around us like ruthless vines. My question was breathy. “Why did you stare at me if you weren’t interested?” “Did I say I wasn’t interested?” He took another step, growing larger still, reaching a point where I couldn’t see anything else. Just him. “Nobody looked at me the way you did, and I liked it. It’s exactly how you’re looking at me now.” All the air vanished from the room. “And how’s that?” It was dizzying when he took the final step and brought us chest to chest, his mouth inches from mine. Was any of this effect from the tequila, or was it all him? His gaze traced over each inch of my face, and I could feel it etching into my skin. “Like you want me to do bad things to you.”  Oh my God. As he’d done, I stood motionless, neither confirming nor denying. I held my breath, waiting for him to make his move. I expected him to kiss me. Or maybe laugh in my face, although Luka didn’t seem like the type to laugh easily. He was deadly serious. “Do you?” His question was soft and indifferent, even as it carried the weight of an enormous challenge. Did I want him to do bad things to me? “I don’t know,” I blurted out. “Maybe.” Luka looked just as I felt—surprised by my admission. What had I just sort of agreed to? A tremble began in the backs of my knees and moved upward when his head tipped down. His mouth lowered until his warm lips sealed over mine. Everything was madness. My actions, the situation, and most importantly, his kiss. I spun out of control under his mouth, surrendering to it completely, even as the kiss was tame. Luka pressed his lips to mine tentatively, but when I parted my lips to gasp, he took advantage. His tongue dipped into my mouth and was an electric jolt straight between my legs. Did I taste like tequila as he did to me, or could he also taste my lust? I had two years’ worth, and this kiss broke the dam holding it back. It poured from me, and as I spun, I latched my hands onto his shoulders to keep myself steady. What the hell was I doing?

Blurb

Let me tell you now: I kill her.

I love Gwenna White more than my life. And still – I'm her demise.


It should have been simple. Easy come, easy go, and in between: atonement.
She was not who I'd have chosen.
Gwen was delicate and lovely: a former model with a ruined life, living loudly in the quiet of the Smoky Mountains, healing injured bears.
When she laid her hands on me, she healed me, too.
That's how it began. That's where it went wrong.

I knew she could never be mine. But I sinned.

I sinned.
