United by Hazel Hunter

Michael has had to choose between serving the Templar which he has done all his life and protecting Summer and Troy. He has chosen his friend and his lover to the dismay of the Templar. Now they are out to get him. He is still recovering from a brutal attack where he sacrificed himself to save Troy and Summer. Together Summer and Troy brought him back with the strange power that only comes when they are all connected. With no where else to turn they all go back to the Silverwood coven to seek refuge. They are not welcomed but Troy's father eventually relents and allows them to stay as long as Michael stays away from the coven. 
Summer has come to terms with the fact that she and Troy and Michael must all be together for them to be bound together and her power to be fully realized but the men haven't decided if they are willing to share Summer even though they are beginning to understand that Summer's power might be the only thing that can protect both Templar and Wiccan from the threat that is to come. 

Will the three of them be able to give in or is it already too late?

I give this book 5 stars!

Stolen by Hazel Hunter

Summer is getting settled into her new life as a witch in the Silverwood Coven. Troy, the warlock who is protecting her, is now her lover as well. The two are getting to know each other better as they are trying to figure out who Summer really is and what happened to her before she ended up in Central Park. Everything seems to be going well until Michael, the Templar who found her in Central park, comes back and takes her away from Troy. 

Michael keeps telling himself that the only reason he took Summer away from Troy is to protect her from the other Templars hunting her but he can't deny the attraction he has to her. He soon gives up his celibate lifestyle and takes Summer as his lover. At first Summer feels guilt in being with Michael but she soon realizes she doesn't want to choose between the two of them.

Troy is devastated to find Summer missing and is determined to find her. He tracks her back to Michael's place and finds the two of them together. At first he is furious but then he realizes that he feels compelled to join them. 

Michael, Summer and Troy are beginning to realize they all need each other in more ways than one and that being together might be the key to unlocking Summer's past and their future.

I give this book 5 stars!

Rescued by Hazel Hunter

This is the first book in the Silverwood Coven series and the second series that I have read by Hazel Hunter. She is an amazing writer who perfectly combines a great story with steamy scenes. 

Summer has been living in Central park alone for months since she woke up bloody and alone in the park. She has no memory of who she is or what happened to her. She has been getting by on the generosity of strangers until one night a strange man comes to her rescue.

Michael has been watching Summer for months. He is an immortal Templar and he has been hunting witches for centuries. He has observed Summer since she showed up in Central park. He believes her to be a witch but he becomes so infatuated with her that he decides to take her to where she will be safe.

Troy and Michael have had a truce since they had to save each other during the Crusades. Michael takes Summer to Troy so she can be safe. Summer is immediately attracted to Troy but can't deny her attraction to Michael as well. 

Will Summer remember anything about her past? Will she be able to control her powers that are now coming to light? Will she be able to choose between Michael and Troy or will she have to?

I give this book 5 stars!

The Bartender by Piper Rayne

Title: The Bartender
Series: Modern Love #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 1, 2017


Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun? 

Was the one night stand a good idea?
Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.


An hour and a half later and hot stuff has come around the bar to take the seat beside me and join me on my mission to get shit-faced. I have to admit, I’m enjoying his company, but it doesn’t exactly make him Employee of the Year given the fact that he’s supposed to be working.

“Won’t your boss be mad that you’re drinking on the job?” I ask.

That damn dimple makes another appearance again before he answers. “Nah, he’s cool. It’s dead in here tonight. If anyone comes in, I’ll be sure they get what they need.” His gaze rakes up and down my small frame, and I get the distinct impression that he’s picturing me naked.

Jeez, I hope my nakedness looks amazing in his brain. Given the half-crooked smile on his face, I think it must. I wonder if his imagination is good enough to picture that dimple in my ass that doesn’t ever seem to want to disappear, regardless of how much I weigh.

As if he’s tempted fate with his words, the bell over the door dings and an older gentleman walks in and seats himself at one of the bar tables across the room.

“Be right back.” Cole pats my hand before he rises from his seat.

It was an innocent gesture, but it makes me think dirty things. The heat from his hand seeps up my arm like a bee sting and settles somewhere in my chest.

I watch him walk away and can’t help but notice the way his ass perfectly fills out his jeans. It bunches and flexes as his long strides take him across the bar. Maybe Lennon is right and it has been too long since I’ve been with a man.

It’s then that I realize that Tinder dude still hasn’t shown up. The bar isn’t busy, probably since it’s the middle of the week, and I’ve been chatting—okay, flirting—with Cole and hadn’t realized how much time had passed. I grab my phone from my purse and open the app to see that I have a new message.
Pussylickr69: Not coming. Sorry found someone else who wasn’t so much werk. Fury causes my face to heat as I type out a quick reply that might be, and by that I mean most definitely is, alcohol-fueled. Whiteebanter: Yeah, I can see how thirty minutes of conversation is too much foreplay for you. Fuck you and your lack of knowledge of the English language. You spell work with an ‘o,’ dipshit. There. That’ll show him. With a frown, I drop my phone back into my purse.

“Everything okay?” Cole asks as he takes the seat beside me again.

I sigh. “Yeah, I just found out that Pussylicker isn’t coming anymore.”

Cole nearly spits out the sip of drink he’s just taken and has a coughing fit before he fully recovers. “Excuse me?”

“I was waiting for a guy from Tinder to show up, but he just ditched me because apparently it was too much work to have a drink with me before taking me back to his place to bang me.” I spin my glass in place on the bar top.

“You’re trolling for guys on Tinder?” Cole howls with laughter so hard he has to hold his stomach. I love the way the laugh looks on his face—the way it crinkles his eyes at the corners and how it showcases his perfect teeth. But all that aside, it’s irritating.

“It’s not that funny.” This guy might be hot, but right now he’s working my nerves.

“Actually, it is. Why the hell would a woman like you resort to finding someone to fuck on a dating site?”

The way the word ‘fuck’ rolls off his tongue has all my womanly parts contracting and wishing that it was an invitation to do just that. But never mind that, because I’m annoyed at him, I just barely remember through my drunken haze.

“What do you mean a woman like me?” I try to do air quotes around the last part, but my balance isn’t what it was three hours ago, and I almost topple off my stool, so I quickly grab on to the bar in front of me.

“Beautiful. Intelligent. Likable. Smartass.” He ticks each word off on one hand while he speaks and he says it like he means it. I hold his stare for a minute before realization dawns.

“Hey! I’m a B.I.L.F. You know, like a M.I.L.F. Only different.” I’m so impressed that I thought of that given my current state.

Cole chuckles with an amused gleam in his eyes. “Only better,” he says.

Our gazes lock for a beat and it’s at that moment I know that if I offer myself up to this guy, he’ll be more than willing to send me on the walk of shame tomorrow morning. Heat rushes into my cheeks and I look away. As much bravado as I had earlier about my Tinder escapade, I’m not sure I can do this. Be this girl so full of confidence that she bangs a stranger with no qualms about it.

My elation has crash-landed on the ground as I realize I’m not able to pull the trigger and make an advance toward him. I also know I’ll probably regret it forever because this man is so far beyond good-looking that it’s a speck in the rear-view mirror. Not to mention the fact that he’s sexy as hell and seems to be a decent human being. Which is more impossible to find in the Bay area than someone who doesn’t think they’re allergic to gluten.

I take a deep breath and finish the last couple of gulps of my drink and push the glass in Cole’s direction.

“Another, please.”

Cole tosses back the rest of his drink and I watch as his Adam’s apple bobs in his throat while the liquid slides down.

Damn. That is sexy.

Why is that sexy?

“I’m going to join you for another as well.” He gets up off his bar stool and before walking away he comes to stand directly behind me. “Assuming you want me to stick around?”

His breath washes across my neck and my ear and I close my eyes for a brief moment to enjoy the sensation. “I’d like that,” I say with all honesty.

“Good. I know the first guy let you down, but don’t worry… I’ve been told I lick pussy like a boss.”

And with that, he walks away while I struggle to keep my heart from pounding out of my chest.

I’m out of my league with this guy. I know it and there’s a good chance that he knows it, too.

But ask yourself this, ladies… if you were called up to the big leagues from the minors, would you say no?
