How far will a good girl go for the bad boy she loves?

Laney Holt is a preacher’s daughter. A good girl. Her only goal was to get married, have babies, and live happily ever after, just like her parents. Only that didn’t happen. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and Laney’s dreams came crashing down. Now she’s left with an empty space she doesn’t know how to fill. Until she meets Jake Theopolis, a daredevil with a death wish who has heartbreaker written all over him.

Jake has no interest in thinking beyond the here and now. All he wants out of life is the next rush, the next “feel-good” thing to keep his mind off the pain of his past. His latest rush? Showing Laney there’s more to life than being a good girl—and that going bad can be so much fun. Her only concern now is how she can ever hope to satisfy the wild side of a boy like Jake. She’s looking forward to trying. And so is Jake.

If you love The Wild Ones, you’ll be just as wild for M. Leighton’s Bad Boys series which includes Down to You, Up to Me, and Everything for Us.

This is Laney and Jakes story and I absolutely loved it! Laney’s first kiss was from sexy Jake four years ago before she left town for college. Jake was the wild child in the area who drank, dated, and partied. All of the things Laney never did. She was the preacher’s perfect daughter. At least until she caught her fiancé cheating on her with her best friend. Laney returned to town to help settle Jake’s family estate. Jake never forgot about beautiful Laney and when she shows up he knows he will stop at nothing to have her. The attraction was obvious right away. The passion between these two nearly shorted out my kindle. Hot! Hot! Hot! Laney’s parents wanted her back with her fiancé without knowing the whole story. Jake didn’t think he was good enough to give Laney the life she deserved, but Laney knew no one would ever be able to measure up to Jake. Would their passion be enough? Grab a copy if you’re looking for a steamy romance. This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone.

THE FIRST BOOK OF THE SURRENDER TRILOGY

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And never have the consequences of erotic exploration been so irresistibly inviting, so shockingly intimate, and so totally unexpected…

LETTING GO

Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend’s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.

Letting Go is the first book in The Surrender Trilogy and is an emotional second chance romance between two friends. After she loses her husband Joss did not think she would find love again. After three years of mourning she decides she wants something her deceased husband couldn’t give her….dominance. Dash has been in love with Joss since the moment he met her and has never acted on it because she was married to his best friend. He helps her grieve and comforts her while she mourns hoping when she moves on he will be the man she moves on with.

They enter a Dom/ Sub relationship and have struggles along the way. There story is ultimately a love story about overcoming loss and finding love again. It’s an emotional read. There is also lots of scorching sex. I look forward to reading the next book in the trilogy when it comes out in April.

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. Now, the story continues as one woman, haunted by the shadows of the past, explores the possibilities of a new beginning in ways she never could have imagined…

Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit—fully to him—will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.

✦Taking It All (Surrender Trilogy) Coming AUGUST 5, 2014

In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And for a married couple taking steps to renew their marriage, the consequences of one single moment of inattention may come at a price the husband never expects.

Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. And loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business the success it has become, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappier with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give. Or they stand to lose it all

Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.

But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband, a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her—has already lost her—he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back. And prove to her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give far more back. Himself. His undying love.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
From New York Times bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren comes a sexy and romantic new contemporary series about corporate combat in the boardroom and under-the-covers passion in the bedroom…

Idealistic good girl Madelyn Grayson believes in doing what’s right. Even as a high-powered executive in the mad world of advertising, she doesn’t cut corners, making her ad campaigns sizzle without having to burn anyone along the way.

Rival exec Zack Douglas never wastes an opportunity to land the next big deal—especially when it benefits him. A bad boy with a reputation to match, he has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to get ahead, no matter who gets in the way.

When a hot promotion pops up at their company, both Zack and Madelyn wind up on the short list for the position. But as the two square off, they discover that being heated rivals in the office makes for scorching bed play behind closed doors. Will Madelyn’s steamy, secret affair with Mr. Vice make her compromise her ideals—or worse, lose her heart?

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

REVIEW:
Right from the first page I was hooked and I couldn’t put this book down. Zack was a playboy and Madelyn hated everything about him. Everything about him except for the way he looked. Just looking at him took her breath away. He was handsome and he knew it. Zach and Madelyn couldn’t have been more opposite. A chance meeting led to burning up the sheets in what was suppose to be a one time encounter. They both knew one time would never be enough. They had to keep their affair quiet because they worked together and did not want to lose their jobs. They decided it would be a weekend thing and stay business as usual during the week. On weekends the sex was hot and it was amusing to watch as they continued to work together during the week. It wasn’t long before weekends weren’t enough. Madelyn fell in love with Zack. Zack swore he’d never fall in love again. I couldn’t wait to see if they would be able to work it out before it was too late. My only complaint is that I would have liked a more detailed ending. Other than that I loved the story and look forward to reading more books from Tracy Anne Warren.
