New Synopsis
Jed Carson is an unscrupulous New York City playboy with a dark past who is bored with his life and determined to break away from his overbearing and ruthless father. Searching for a fresh start and new pleasures, he moves to Colorado and meets Olivia Brown, an innocent young woman grieving her parents’ recent death, and he wantonly seduces her and teaches her about sex. 
A custody battle, pregnancy and murder complicate their sexual relationship and bring the pair closer together, and a seemingly harmless therapy turns their lives upside down and changes them both forever. 
(Strong sexual content)

New excerpt 

“You should know, Olivia, I heard everything,” he murmurs, his voice low and silky.

Olivia glares at him, panic in her eyes.  She places the drink on the coffee table and drops to the sofa, lowering her head and covering her eyes with slender hands.  Can she be any more miserable?  Everything?  Shit!

Jed sets the drink on the side table, rises slowly and moves to the sofa.  He sits close and drapes an arm over the backrest behind her.  He cups her chin and forces her to look at him.  “There’s nothing to be ashamed of, Olivia,” he says softly, cocking his head to the side and smiling a knowing smile.

“I’m not,” she breathes, feeling that delicious pull, her belly muscles tightening.

“Good.  So have you ever had an orgasm?”

Olivia blinks.  Jeez.  She can’t believe he’s asking–mentioning–saying it out loud.  She wants to be offended by the extremely inappropriate question, but she can’t muster the emotion.  Her brain has left the building.

“Well?” he persists.

“No,” she mumbles miserably.

His eyes soften and he frees her chin.  “What about when you’re alone, Olivia?” he asks seductively, nuzzling his nose in her neck.

Jeez.  Can she be more embarrassed?  How can he sit there and calmly talk about orgasms?

Jed rises slowly and moves back to the chair.  He sits, picks up the drink, crosses a leg over a knee and rhythmically runs an index finger back and forth over his lower lip, his eyes locked on her.  Although seemingly cool on the outside, his insides are churning.  Pure lust rages within him–combustible, overwhelming desire.  Fuck.  He has never felt like this before and he knows he’s playing with fire.

Olivia peeks up at him, her green eyes guarded.  She will not admit to him that she has never had an orgasm.  Jeez.  She gulps the rest of the drink and waits for the fire to spread through her.  “I bet you can change that,” she says bravely, smiling a shy crooked smile.

Jed spits a mouthful of cognac back into the glass and his eyes widen.  “You don’t know what you’re saying, Olivia,” he warns harshly, his eyes black and impassive.

Olivia arches a brow–questioning him–daring him.

“You don’t know me, Olivia,” he smirks, continuing to rub a finger over his lower lip, his brows furrowing.

“You don’t want me?” she squeaks, her heart in her throat.

Olivia’s sweet innocence tugs at his heart and he nervously rakes a hand through his hair.  He wants her bad.  “I want you, Olivia.  But I can’t promise you anything,” he sighs.

“Can you promise me an orgasm?” she baits, her voice quivering and she can’t believe the words came out of her mouth.

 New My Review

StarStarStarStar

I received a copy of this book for my honest spoiler free review.

Let me start with the title… LOL boy did I get the meaning all wrong!!! 🙂 But then again I guess I didn’t, this book was steamy! Talk about sex scenes! But I guess I’m getting ahead of myself huh? Well that’s how The Vitamin D Treatment was, the relationship between Olivia and Jed went by extremely quick. However, I still found myself intrigued. All the information needed to understand them was there. We got to know each character as individuals. Where they are from and why they ended up where they are. The hardships they’ve endured.

After the death of her parents, Olivia leaves New York and returns home to care for her little brother and to take over management of the Mansion. She is a bright, loveable young lady. And the moment she locks eye with Jed she’s lost.

Jed is a millionaire, originally from New York. He plans to stay at the mansion to propose a buyout. But when he lays eyes on Olivia he’s lost.

These two can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. 😉

This story has many twist that will keep you wanting to finish it and then when you get to the end WHAM major cliffhanger!!

For a debut novel I will say, good job! I was definitely intrigued enough to want to read book 2!

Bang

One second: loud music, dancing, laughing, fun, family, friends, love and everything…

Bang

Next second: screaming, running, crying, fear, pain, blood, loss and nothing…

Bang….

The events of one night on Willow Island will irrevocably change the lives of so many forever.

Breesan Maxwell’s ultimate downfall came that night after one kiss. The impenetrable wall surrounding her fragile heart crumbled, and now the entirety of it belongs to one man, Marcus Walker. Finally accepting his love along with those she denied for years, Breesan finds that it is vital to her existence.

Better judgment and commitments be damned, Marcus Walker succumbs to the one thing he vowed never to do. Love found him that fateful night, but will his new happiness be lost while he struggles to save the woman of his dreams. Heaved unwillingly into his poisonous covert life, will she survive the threats of abductions, illegal experimental drugs, and death?

Morgan Walker’s twisted family responsibilities will lead him to an ultimatum that shreds his perfect plan apart. Promised one woman, intrigued by another, yet neither owns him. Will the one woman who could redeem his narcissistic ways be lost to him before he realizes that he suffers with a broken heart and needs her love?

Can these entangled souls survive the relentless pursuits of unforeseen forces, stopping at nothing to get what they desire? Or can Breesan, Morgan and Marcus push through their fears and personal hells, fighting for what really matters most before All Is Lost?

New excerpt

Marcus Walker

My heavy breathing prevents me from speaking, but I don’t need to say a word. Her eyes lift up to greet me, as if she could sense me before she could hear or see me. Wide gray eyes melt into pools the second she realizes that I am really here. I bolt across the room and clutch her delicate, warm body to mine. She nuzzles her face into the crook of my neck, drawing in a deep breath and then relaxing into me.

“I’m here now, Baby.” I whisper against her cheek.

A silent sobbing takes over and her entire body trembles from holding the grief in too long. With my arms already engulfing her small body, I draw her tighter against my chest. I glance up and see the guilty ass look plastered on Kole face, confirming that they have told her the news and I am about to get my pissed off on. Jerking my head toward the door, I silently suggest he can leave and that he better take everyone with him.

After simply holding me for a while in a tight embrace, she slowly pulls away and peers up at me through matted eyelashes. Tenderly, I raise my hand up, cup her cheek, and stroke my thumb over her bottom lip. Staring passionately into my eyes, she softly kisses the pad of my thumb. My god, her full lips and sad eyes make me want to kiss the hell out of her. But I can’t take advantage of her when she’s hurting.

I slide my hand under her chin, tipping it upward. My love for her grips hold of my soul and it screams for me to handle her with care. Placing my forehead against hers, I squeeze my eyes shut and force away the desire to ravage her on this damn countertop. Being away from her was too much. I kiss her face, starting with her forehead. My lips heat instantly connecting with her smooth skin. I breathe in deeply, savoring her intoxicating scent. She slowly glides her hands up my arms. Her fingernails scrape along my skin, sending shivers through every cell in my body. My lips move along her forehead and down the side of her face where I place several lingering kisses and I feel the grief flowing away with each one. Moving down her neck, I slide my nose along the edge of her ear and kiss her earlobe.

I need to taste her. My tongue edges along her ear, retracing my path. Her deep gasp tells me that I am taking her mind off of everything. A lustful moan rattles hard in my chest, like a bullet just ripped through me, slicing my dark heart. Breesan is my light in this dark and sinister world, bursting forth. It is her love alone that brightens the evil pathway and draws my heart out of the eclipsing blackness, dimmed by past relationships.

Needing more, I wind my hands through her long dark curls and draw her closer, by digging my fingers into her neck. The pressure isn’t enough to hurt her, but it is enough for her to understand exactly what I must have. She spreads her legs apart and I take up position between them. Caressing one hand down her back, I reach her hip and grip it tightly and she comes willingly to me. I drag her to the edge of the counter and press hard into her. Slow down, I tell myself.

“You’re really here,” Breesan says, believing it so, now that she’s out of her earlier haze. She’s panting hard and her heart rate matches mine. Wanting her to know how much I missed her, I graze my mouth over her bottom lip, instantly needing more. Covering her mouth with mine, I kiss her softly but it only adds to my desire. Her lips move in unison with mine and our reunion becomes scorching. I shouldn’t kiss her so passionately, during a time like this, but she is everything. Thrusting her breast against my chest, Breesan opens her mouth with a heavy moan. Hearing that sweet sound, I lose my mind and I take it – roughly. I take every whimper, every grunt and every sigh, but it’s still not enough. I want more.

While pushing my rock solid hard-on between her widespread legs, I pull her by her sweet ass brutally against me. She clinches her legs tightly, holding me against her center tightly and I almost come apart. I feel her heating from our friction and all I want at this very moment is to drop down on my knees and taste her. Releasing the intense hold I have on her backside, I slip my hand around her hip and graze over the top of her thigh. I can’t stop myself. I need to feel her.

Incapable of processing a damn thought any longer, I take our relationship to a step we’ve never been. I glide my hand between her legs and cup her, feeling her wetness through her shorts. Throwing her head back, she groans and pushes forward, against my hand.

“Ohmygod,” Her voice is raspy with bliss.

I drop my eyes down to where my fingers press into her, feeling my heart stall completely. Mygod, watching her writhe on my hand is the most fucking intoxicating thing I’ve ever seen, even with her fully dressed.

“Marcus, I need you so much.” She says in a voice only meant for the bedroom.

Hearing her say my name and telling me her needs while I’m getting her close to climax causes my heart to squeeze so tight that I feel like it might explode. Clawing her nails into my hair and pulling me down, she crashes my mouth on hers. In this kiss, I give her my heart, my soul and everything that I am, confirming after being away from her too damn long, that I am irrevocably in love with her.

She slips her hands under my shirt, tracing up my stomach and stopping when she reaches my chest. She needs me too, I justify practically screwing on the kitchen counter.

“Not in the kitchen.” A playful voice sings, breaking up our reunion and I want to kill the son of a bitch for interrupting us.

Stilling in my arms, Breesan’s gray eyes snap open, piercing me with a combination of fear and embarrassment that surges through them.

She whispers, “Ohgod.”

“Hey you two love-birds, I said, not in the kitchen. So knock it off.”

It is Sam barging in that explains Breesan’s reaction. Because it is my sister and not one of the guys she looks like she wants to crawl under a rock and hide. Looking at Breesan’s swollen lips and tangled hair, I’m thankful that I didn’t go against my promise and fuck her now. After everything that’s happened, it would be a real bastardly move on my part.

Something_Wicked_final

Title: Something Wicked by Angela Campbell

Series: (The Psychic Detectives Series #2) – Can be read as a stand-alone

Published by: Harper Impulse

Publication date: October 31st 2013

Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense

SYNOPSIS:

Psychic medium Alexandra King is sick of being pestered by her boss’s dead mother demanding help to reunite her two estranged sons. Determined to get some peace and quiet again, Alexandra follows a lead in finding the younger Collins brother to Charleston, South Carolina, where she immediately meets the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes on and finds herself a willing participant in seduction. Of course, her one-night-stand turns out to be none other than Dylan Collins — her boss’s younger brother and a homicide detective who believes psychics are a complete waste of time.

All Dylan wants is a few hours of pleasure to take his mind off of the case haunting him. A serial killer is stalking the streets of The Holy City — a killer who calls himself The Grim Reaper. When the woman he’d just spent the night with turns up and offers her services as a psychic consultant on the case, his ardor quickly cools. Last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a con artist.

It doesn’t take long for Dylan to realize Alexandra is the real deal – and the killer’s next target. Dylan’s protective instincts battle his reluctance to get too involved with a woman he isn’t sure he can trust. As they get closer to finding the killer, they also grow closer to one another, but will Alexandra’s secret agenda destroy their chance at happiness — if the killer doesn’t strike first?
