RELEASE DAY: For Valentine’s (No Weddings #4.5) by Kat Bastion & Stone Bastion




This steamy nightcap novella, the fifth book in the No Weddings Series, takes us on a post-happily-ever-after adventure as Cade attempts to rewrite Valentine’s Day with his new wife, Hannah.

Wedded bliss. After everything Hannah and I have been through, we finally have it. Yet dark dreams from my troubled past continue to escalate as we approach Valentine’s Day.

Determined to fill our present with great memories that overtake all others, I plan a trip to New York—down to every scheduled detail. Yeah, there will even be a musical.

But Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve. And the universe keeps throwing us curveballs…

Scorching (explicit) sex scenes.
Fire extinguisher highly recommended.

Cade and Hannah heat things up in her ’67 Mustang…

When Hannah removed her hand from my crotch, cooler air seeped through the denim. Then her soft lips touched my earlobe seconds before hard teeth tugged on it. She reached over to the ignition and twisted the key, cutting the engine. “We won’t need the heat for a while.”

She was right. Windows? Already fogging.

The coat that she’d been huddling under only seconds ago, slid off of her as she shifted and knelt onto her seat. She bundled up the woolen material and tossed it into the back.

I’d planned this trip to be amazing, to get my troubling dreams in line with my incredible reality, and when we hit a little black-ice speed bump? Hannah grabbed the wheel…

My pulse kicked up at the desire in her darkened eyes. Needing to touch her, I slid a hand up her thigh.

My one-track mind screeched to a halt. “Uh…” Those knit-tight things still clung to her legs. “How do you propose we have sex with these things on?” I pinched the material away from her skin, then released it. The fabric was so soft, it didn’t even snap against her skin properly. I scowled. “These come off.”

She shook her head with an amused smile. “No. They’re keeping me warm. Besides, who said you’re getting any? We said ‘making out.’”

I choked out a laugh. “For over an hour? You trying to kill me with blue balls?”

That luscious lip of hers disappeared behind her teeth as she negotiated carefully around the gearshift to attempt to straddle my lap. Not in any way resembling merely “making out.” Interesting.

With my long legs, the seat was already adjusted back as far as possible. The steering wheel had nowhere to else go. But none of the cramped quarters made any difference to my determined woman. And she fit perfectly.

As her body settled over mine, all soft curves and temptation underneath the thin fabric of her dress, her lips brushed over my ear. “I promise you won’t die. And there will be no blue balls.”

Translation: sex.

She just wanted to play a little. Or a lot.

And I was the happiest fucking man on Earth to be her toy.

Her lips began a sensual path over my skin, trailing below my ear, dotting small kisses over my jawbone, until she reached my chin. Then she paused and swallowed hard.

Her chest heaved up and down, breasts pressing against me with every inhalation. Her fingers found their way into my hair, cradling the back of my head. Her intense gaze penetrated down deep, piercing my heart. “I love you, Cade Michaelson.”

My lips curved into a smile. Before I had a chance to respond, her eyes drifted closed and she kissed me. Not hard and rough. Not urgent. She took her time, savoring each touch. Her tongue tasted mine, then her lips closed, denying me access. Until she sucked on my lower lip.

Unhurried, lazy and seductive, she backed up her words with her body. Our lips touching was the only skin to skin, but her body undulated over mine. Hips arched, then curved against me in slow rhythm. Her fingers tugged at my hair.

I groaned and closed my eyes, my cock hardening painfully behind my denim button fly. But I didn’t pull the plug on her slow seduction. Nothing in the world would make me take control away from her.

BLOG TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Something Wild (Reckless & Real #0,5) & Something Reckless (Reckless & Real #1) by Lexi Ryan

Something Wild AmazonSomethingReck Amazon



**Author’s Note: This is a free introduction to the full-length romance novel SOMETHING RECKLESS, coming December 22nd!**

“You need a good guy. A long-term guy. One who does dates and romance and emotional strings…I’m just an asshole who wants to tie you up, make you come, and walk away.”

Samuel Bradshaw is a man with a reputation—the kind of reputation that should have me running the other way. Instead, it has me searching for the shortest distance to his bed. I won’t be the starry-eyed girl who thinks she can change a man like Sam, and despite what he thinks, forever is not what I need. I need the things he makes me feel, the way he turns me on, and the promise of pleasure in his eyes. This promises to be SOMETHING WILD.



He talks dirty to me, but I don’t know his name.

He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.

He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.

I’ve fallen for an anonymous stranger, and tonight the anonymity ends. Tonight I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.

Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn’t a stranger at all.

Lizzy Thompson met riverrat69 online through Something Real, a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they’ve reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.

Now they’re breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She’s picked up hints and followed clues.

She’s ninety-percent convinced she’s discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.

She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.

When she rolls the dice on one reckless night, her chance at something real could crumble.




This is the first book I read of Lexi Ryan and I loved it.  The writing style for this book is cool, perfect pace, great development of the characters and awesome plot.  Something Wild is the first novella of the Reckless & Real Series.  It tells the beginning of Sam and Liz’s story and it was scorchingly HOT!

Liz is straightforward about what she wanted of Sam.  “No strings, no attachments, no expectations” just sex, wild sex.  And that was exactly what Sam wanted too.  At least that was what they both thought they wanted.  But things weren’t so easy between them.

I liked both characters.  They were great together.  The chemistry between them were wayyyy HOT!!!  But… their lack of communication and fears set them apart.  I was so annoyed with the assumptions they made.  I wished they had tried to clarify what had happened. *shakes head*  This book was all drama, drama, drama. Good thing that I could read the sequel right after I finished this novella.

Favorite quotes:

“Hey, you seem a little down. Want me to ride you until you can’t remember her name?” – Liz

“I hold her tight, squeezing her ass and pressing her closer to my mouth, like her pleasure is salvation and I’m a lost and broken soul.” – Sam


WOW!!  Just WOW!!  This book had me on edge the entire time.  If it wasn’t for the battery dying on the iPad and it being New Year’s, I would’ve finished this book in one day.  IT WAS THAT AMAZING!  Sam *sigh* I love you forever!

This book starts two years after Something Wild.  Liz is trying desperately to set her life in order.  Find a new job and a man to settle down with but that has been very difficult because of Sam. Liz keep comparing every man with Sam and that is setting the expectations very high. Sam on the other hand, doesn’t want his life to change.  His player life makes him happy, well sort of.  Despite of everything that happened in the past with Liz, Sam keeps thinking about her, dreaming about her, obsessing about her.

It was funny how the same thing that set them apart 2 years ago was the thing that brought them back together now.  Sam needed a girl to show off -Appearances are very important for his family- to keep him out of the gossips and Liz was just willing to date him.  At first, Liz accepted because she couldn’t think straight when Sam was around.  But then, when things were getting hotter and hotter and out of control, she just couldn’t stop it… nor could Sam.  I love them together.  They were playful, romantic and the sex was super hot!

The plot of the book was great.  I love the pacing of the storyline.  The ending however, was so effing shocking.  So unexpected.  I had my theories and they were all wrong.  Now, I have to wait two months to read the next book but I’m pretty sure I’ll love Something Real because I loved the synopsis so there’s no doubt about it.

Favorite quotes:

“Once upon a time, there was a guy who kept his heart locked away in a box. One night, when he was in a darker place than he’d ever been in his life, she showed him light. She made him laugh. She turned him on. She looked so fucking beautiful when she came that it was hard for the guy to imagine his heart needed protecting, that it could be pulverized”.
