I was on my own.

My friend, my coach, my lover - Marc - was lost to me. And worse, if I wanted to keep playing toward the World Championship, I would face him across a poker table sooner or later.

Could I win against him at our game, when I'd lost the only thing I wanted from him?

What will be the final outcome?

***Surrender the Bet is FINAL part of Full Tilt Billionaire serial series. It is not a standalone. You must read the other 4 before this one***

Her sharp tone arrested my fevered planning and made me look at her, really look, for the first time. Her expression was tragic, the corners of her mouth turned down and tears sparkling in her eyes. They’d changed color, as they always did when she was upset. No gold flecks, only the deepest blue-gray from the center to the outside of her irises. My heart skipped a beat and in two long strides I was with her, wrapping my arms around her and pulling her close.
“Baby,” I choked. “I’m so sorry. I can’t believe I let this happen. I’ll make it right, I promise.”
Tara broke down. Her tears soaked through my thin undershirt immediately as her thin body shook in my arms. God, how much weight had she lost? I hadn’t noticed before, but she was rail-thin. What had I done to my gorgeous girl? I wrapped her closer in my arms and bent to kiss the top of her head. Just then, she lifted her head to look at me and I found her lips instead.
With a longing I didn’t know I had in me, I devoured her mouth with mine. She had to know, before I gave her up forever, how much she meant to me. Fuck, I didn’t even know myself, until too late. What had started as a business arrangement now had my heart tied up in it. And it must be my karma for treating all those other women as playthings, that I was about to lose her.
Tara’s hands crept around my waist and under my shirt, sliding their way upward until the shirt was bunched under my arms and I understood she wanted it off. I pulled away briefly to strip it off, before clutching her to me again. Her soft hands played along the muscles of my back, which rippled with pleasure as her nails scratched lightly. When I moaned, she dug the nails of both hands into my skin.
I was barely aware of having uttered her name, but she pulled away from me, eyes blazing, and turned her back to me. Momentarily confused, I got it when she swept her hair up with one hand and pointed to the zipper in the back of her dress with the other. From somewhere in a mind-fog, I observed my trembling hand take the tab and pull the zipper down, revealing her creamy skin from neck to well below her waist with nothing under the dress.
I drew my breath in, slowly, as my body responded to her intentions. Hope gave way to assurance as I pushed the straps of the dress away from her shoulders and gently turned her, allowing the dress to slip to the floor. Standing naked before me except for a wisp of an undergarment that barely covered her mound, Tara gave me a tremulous smile and I was undone. I reached to cup one perfect breast and then the other and then, God help me, fell to my knees to worship her.
“Marc, no, get up, please,” she whispered.
I grasped her waist with both hands and pulled myself upright, then swept her into my arms before depositing her on the bed and following her there on hands and knees. As I straddled her, I looked down to find her eyes shining up at me.
“Make love to me, Marc.”
She reached for my neck and pulled me down to her breasts. It had been so long—too long—since I’d had Tara. She made it plain that she wanted slow and tender lovemaking, and I tried, I really did. But her passion lit a response in me I could only call caveman, and the more she responded, the more I couldn’t hold back.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this series. Reading about the ins and outs of the poker world, along with the suspense from the mob family in vegas, and the romance between Marc and Tara - this series kept you on your toes and wanting to know what was going to happen next!

I'd recommend the series to anyone looking for an interested quick read. I don't think any of the books took more than an hour and a half to read at most.

About the Author:
Like you, I’m a reader. When I read a good story with characters I can connect with, my everyday existence fades into the background as I enter a world that may contain exotic locations, adventure and excitement. And, if I can be totally honest with you, in my favorite stories I can fall in love for a while with an impossibly gorgeous guy who is the best lover imaginable.

So, maybe it won’t come as a surprise that in my books you’ll find hot alpha male book-boyfriends, sassy heroines who are much more clever and beautiful than I am, and stories I hope will make you laugh and cry while reading them, as I did while writing them. Oh, and some scenes you may want to role-play with your lover.

Review: Insatiable #2, J.D. Hawkins

book 2
J.D. Hawkins

erotic romance

It was supposed to be simple: I teach her a crash course in pleasure. No commitment. No strings.
Now she’s found the perfect guy — and it’s not me.

I should move on, but I need her. And I never back down from a fight.

Now I’ve got one last lesson for her:
I’m going to make her mine.


Again, this book was just okay for me.

I was actually a little disappointed. In the first book we are introduced to Jax, strong, sexy, confident and cocky. This is the character that compels me to continue reading. I understand that you want a dynamic character, you need to show all sides to his personality... but to turn him into a complete whiner that mopes around and has no confidence what so ever is ridiculous. It was too over the top for me, too much of a drastic change in character for just a few days.

The steamy scenes were still good, and there was a little humor - but it seems to me that Lizzie and Jax swop personalities at some point and it just didn't do it for me.

2.5 stars. 

Review: Insatiable, J.D. Hawkins

Part 1
J.D. Hawkins

Erotic Romance

It’s not cocky when you've got the goods to back it up.

Lust-maker. Pleasure giver. Fantasy creator. I can blow your mind in five seconds flat — but trust me, you’ll want this to last all night.

There’s not a woman in the city who can resist me. Except one.

Now she’s got a proposition: Seven days. Every position. No strings attached.

She wants to know what she’s been missing.

Who am I to say no?


This book was okay for me.

The writing was good in some places and annoying short choppy sentences in others... There was a nice balance of humor and steamy scenes, and who doesn't like a sexy and confident main character?

It just didn't stand out from the hundreds of other stories just like it.

It did keep me interested enough to download book two, just so I know what happens! Now, had this been a 3 or 4 book series, I probably wouldn't have bothered.

I'd recommend it for a short plane or train ride - or just for a quick something between longer novels or series.

3 Stars

Author Blitz: Violet Haze

violet TLS author blitz banner.jpg

Today we bring you the Luna Serial Series, by author Violet Haze. This is to help spread the word of not only the books she offers, but to share the author with you.

Violet is not only an independent author, she's a part time teacher, since she home-schools her precious six year old son, Violet is a proud Aspie, as she calls herself. To top off the list of struggles Violet faces daily she, also has Asperger's Syndrome, hence the nickname of sorts. For those of you that do not know what it is, it's a form of autism. So writing is what she focuses on. It's her thing. But things have been tight for her thanks to Amazon’s changing its parameters of what ‘adult’ is. This is costing Violet precious time and money. When this is your job, a loss of sales means a loss of money and it’s frustrating, as it would be and is for others. Daily struggles happen no matter what, but Violet is having to deal with a loss that is endangering her and her son’s ability to survive.

So we are asking for help. Rallying the troops if you will. Time to pay it forward. Do I want you to go and buy her books? We would like that, yes. But is it the only way you can help? No. it’s not. All it takes is one person to buy a book. One to pass this message on. One to to say hey, let's do something nice today. One turns to two, two turns to three and so on. Pass the story. Take a moment to allow yourself a smile and help out a struggling mother to provide for her son and herself.

Your help and generosity is greatly appreciated!

I’m lost in thought when my high heel snaps and I topple forward. I put my hands out, hissing as my palms scrape against the ground. I roll to sit and pick up the shoe, checking out the damage before I smack it repeatedly on the ground in frustration.
It takes a second for me to notice that a sleek, shiny black car has stopped next to the curb. I glance up only to freeze, then scowl at his smiling face. He’s taken off his seatbelt and has leaned across the middle of the vehicle to keep me in his view.
“You won’t break ground by using a shoe. You do know that, don’t you?”
At his mirth filled observation, I throw my shoe and he ducks, making sure it flies past his head and lands inside the car somewhere.
He chuckles before stepping out, leaving the car idling as he walks over and offers me his hand.
I stare up at him, realizing that he doesn’t recognize me in my short-haired brown wig. I also have color contacts in, but I doubt he’s ever taken note of my eye color.
Accepting his hand, I wince as my raw palm meets his and stand up. Letting go immediately, I gently kick my other shoe off and lean over to pick it up.
I rack my brain, trying to remember his name and failing. He comes into my work three mornings a week, ordering a black coffee and a bowl of mixed fruit, then sits at the table for an hour while reading the newspaper. A routine he’s kept up for over a month now.
As I meet his dark chocolate gaze with my fake green one, he grins and gestures to his car.
“May I give you a ride to wherever you need to go?”
I shake my head and step back. “No, thanks. I’m not far from here.”
Why did I say that? For all I know, he could be stalker and now he knows I live nearby!
He looks down at my feet, then back up at my face. “You aren’t wearing any shoes; you could hurt yourself.”
“I’ll be fine,” I insist, turning toward the direction I need to go when he speaks again.
“Why don’t you let me at least drop you really close by? I’ll even drive off and you can watch me go before you head to your building.”
I whirl around, crossing my arms over my chest. “I don’t even know your name. I’m not getting into your car with you because you could kidnap me and—“
“Tobias Giles-Blackburn,” he cuts in, taking out his wallet and flipping it open to show me his drivers license. “I’m not going to kidnap you. Even if I wanted to, now you know my name, so I’d have to kill you to keep you silent and I’m wearing my best suit.”
My mouth drops open at his statement, even as I acknowledge that his ensemble — a light grey three-piece suit and white undershirt with a red tie for a pop of color — flatters his physique and features quite well.

What He Desires
Luna; Book 2
Pages: 94
Published: February 14th 2014
Published by: Violet Haze


A complex proposal…

His offer could save everything I’ve worked for. In exchange, he wants me in every way possible.

An inescapable passion…

His determination to win me over is undeniable. My desire to resist may not be enough to protect my heart.

A connection that is more than it seems…

He knows something I don’t. And when the dreams come, I’m left wondering if I’ve made the biggest mistake of my life.

Note: This erotic romance is a novella and book 2 of 3. Not all situations are resolved. Ages 16-18+ depending on your location. Please read "For The Night (Luna, #1)" first!

It’s been two days and I ache.
Between the kiss he’s giving me now and the memories of the sex we had, my body is on fire.
But I don’t know if it’s sex in general I want, or sex with him.
Either way, I’m screwed and not in the way I like.
I pull my mouth away from his and turn my face to the side.
I suppose he thinks I’m taking a break because he starts kissing down the side of my neck and rocks into me, making it very clear that I’m what he needs right this second.
What he desires.
I wish I could give it to him, as well as take what I want and need.
But I can’t.
I’ve never slept with a person more than once, and even though I’ve given up my nights out as Luna, I don’t think I’m ready to change my rules. Even for him.
No. Scratch that. Especially for him.
“I can’t do this,” I whisper. “Let me go.”
He stops long enough to ask, “Can’t?” Then, he gives my neck a quick lick that causes a shiver to run through me before he inquires, “Or won’t?”
“Both, damn you.” I don’t have to repeat my request for him to let me go though. He backs off, releasing me from my imprisonment against the wall even as his hands grip my upper arms.
“Steady?” I nod and he removes his hands, turning back toward the study. “I believe we still have business to discuss.”

He grins down at me before lowering his head and placing his lips on mine.
Weeks. It’s been weeks since we’ve had sex thanks to his impromptu business trip. And I want sex. Badly.
But, I have a plan and I can’t let him divert it.
I pull away before he can deepen the kiss. I point across the room as confusion fills his face. He looks to see what I’m indicating, then turns back to me with one brow lifted.
“What’s the chair for? You want tied up?”
“No.” I shake my head, stepping back enough that he lets me go. “It’s for you. That is, if you want the something special I’ve planned.”
His expression stays the same as he asks, “For me? You want to tie me to the chair? No way.”
I hold up one of his ties. “Yes way. And it’s just your hands so you can’t touch.”
“What if I promise I won’t?”
“Nope.” I nod toward the chair. “Even if you will no doubt be able to get the tie off, I figure it will be a nice reminder to behave. Now take off your clothes and sit.”
Tobias crosses his arms, the intense look he aims at me making me flush. “And if I don’t? If I take you over my knee and spank you for telling me to ‘sit’ like a dog instead?”
Yes, please!
I take a step in his direction, unbuttoning his shirt as I smile up at him. “If you don’t, well, I didn’t see a sentence anywhere in the agreement saying I’m required to have sex with you — at all.”
At that, he frowns. “That’s cruel.”
I laugh, mostly because I’ve never told him how much I need sex, and therefore, would never be able to go without. The weeks he’d been gone had been torture and I have no desire for a repeat. “You’re the one being difficult. I’m trying to get you naked.” Stepping up on tiptoe, I brush my lips against his before stepping back. “I’ll be right back. Be ready for me!”
When I reach the door, I glance back in time to see him pulling off his shirt.
Grinning, I head into the bathroom to prepare for giving Tobias a night he won’t forget.
