One scar.
One betrayal.
No escape.

When Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges, Melissa Jones stops believing her wealthy, connected ex-husband will ever pay for what he did to her. 

Derek Alexander can’t accept that—a tiny silver scar won't let him forget, and as a leader in the security business, he is determined to get the man who hurt his fiancée.

Then the body of a former call girl turns up dead. She’s the breakthrough Derek’s been waiting for, the link to Sloan’s sordid past he needs. But as usual, legal paths to justice have been covered up or erased.

Derek’s ready to do whatever it takes to protect his family when his partner Patrick Knight devises a plan that changes everything. 

It’s a plan that involves coloring outside the lines and taking a walk on the dark side. It goes against everything on which Alexander-Knight, LLC, is based.

And it’s a plan Derek’s more than ready to follow.

Note: Standalone, M/F, HEA.

Nikki continued talking, but I wasn’t listening. Cold realization flashed in my brain like lightening striking a tree.
Jessica Black. It was the name on the email Melissa had put in front of me that day she visited our offices. The day she dropped a nuke on all my dreams of a life with her, when she revealed my former “mentor,” her ex-husband Sloan Reynolds’s secret double-life. He had high-end escorts all over the country, and Jessica Black was his first careless slip. Melissa had found it.
Nikki was still reminiscing as I spun around in my chair, shaking my computer awake. Fingers flying over the keys, I pulled up all the information I could find on the dead girl.
She’d been living in Baltimore for a year. I wondered if she followed him from wherever they’d hooked up the first time. Why would she do that? Was it possible she was in love with him? Was it for the money? Had he promised her anything?
It didn’t matter. She’d disappeared off the police blotter from the time she arrived there until now, when she’d turned up dead.
Reasons scrolled across my brain of all the possible causes of death, but looking at her beaten face, all I could see was the photo Melissa had put in front of me all those months ago.
My instincts were on high alert. Sloan was getting antsy, and I knew what he wanted. Jessica Black might look like the real thing, but she wasn’t it.
Substitutes would never fill the possession he felt. I’d followed enough of these twisted fucks to know. He was coming for Melissa, and it was just a matter of when.

Desert Heat by Elizabeth Reyes - BLOG STOP

Title:  Desert Heat
Author:  Elizabeth Reyes
Publication Date:  May 13, 2014


Atria Books and Simon & Schuster bring you this addictive and steamy romance novel by Elizabeth Reyes the USA Today bestselling author of the Moreno Brothers, 5th Street and Fate series.

Bethany Amaya is working three jobs, worrying about her family back home, and running from her past. The worst thing that could complicate her life further would be a romance. But after a second-run in with the irresistibly sexy detective Damian Santiago, that's exactly what she gets. In the blink of an eye, she's caught up in a passionate romance with one of the most intense men she's ever met.

Awestruck for a second time by the beautiful and intriguing performer, Damian is both  surprised and delighted that Bethany agrees to something he didn't even expect to be asking for so soon--exclusivity. As things heat up, Damian's skills of detecting and reading body language begin to raise suspicions--Bethany is keeping something from him. Try as he might to calm his suspicions, the blatant signs become impossible to ignore.

Some things are better left unsaid. At least that's what Bethany keeps telling herself. She never imagined falling in love so quickly, and she refuses to get Damian caught up in her troubles. She knows what he suspects--sees it in those possessive eyes. With Damian's suspicions mounting, time is of the essence. The race is on, and Bethany finds herself scrambling to fix the past before the truth comes out and Damian finds out that it's much worse than he suspected.

Redemption (Fixer series) by Alyson Raynes - PROMO & REVIEW


 photo RedemptionCoverFinal314-page-0_zpsc1be44d8.jpg

Title: Redemption
Book 3 in The Fixer Series
Author: Alyson Raynes
Genre: Suspenseful Romance/Erotica 


Dylan Prescott is a man who knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe. Living a privileged life has afforded the Prescott family many luxuries--until one of the family's deepest, darkest secrets is revealed. Alone and fighting for his life in a Russian hospital, Dylan realizes he is in way over his head. Unsure of how to sever his ties with those who are most corrupt, he begins plotting a new way to help people and finally become the man he knew he was always destined to be. Brooke Prescott has been missing for nine months. Unsure of who--or where-- she is, she must fight to remember and find her way back to those who love her the most. Will Brooke remember Dylan, or have recent events changed her so much that she will walk away and never look back? Or can Dylan be strong enough for the both of them? Can he learn to be the driving force to their redemption? "They say if you get a second chance in life, you should take it. Sometimes that is easier said than done, especially when you’re the one that has caused all the pain."


Tears streamed down my face as I remembered the first time I met him.  He was so young, beautiful and full of life, not like the man I had seen suffering in pain, just days ago.  My heart burned to see him, my fingers ached to touch him, just like when we shared our first kiss.  A kiss that I would never forget for as long as I lived.  It was forbidden, both of us promised to another, but the attraction was so strong, neither one of us could fight it.  I could still feel it, no matter how far apart we were.  He was my soulmate

What a roller coaster ride the Fixer series takes the reader on!

As a reader I wonder why an author picks a certain title or series name; I wondered if Dylan Prescott, the male lead is so dominant and fixes all of life's little problems for Brooke Stone, the female lead.  Dylan does like to fix things for Brooke but that's not the reason it is called the Fixer series.

I had the pleasure of reading all three books back to back; each book is about 100 pages long and could be read as a standalone, however, I found myself anxious to read more of Dylan's and Brooke's story as each book came to a close.  

Book one, Deception, tells the tale of how Brooke comes to work at the same company Dylan works for.  Later it is revealed that Dylan's family owns the company and he is working there to learn the business from the ground up.  When Brooke and Dylan meet, Brooke is instantly attracted to Dylan despite his arrogance.  Dylan appears to be attracted to Brooke but then again he flirts with everyone.  

Brooke has been in a relationship with Stefan for the past eleven years and Dylan has a friends-with-benefits going on with a lawyer at the company, Misty.  Dylan breaks things off with Misty to pursue Brooke; Brooke is successful in fighting her attraction to Dylan until she finds out that Stefan has been cheating on her.  Dylan knows this is his shot and runs with it.  

As Dylan and Brooke fall deeper into love, they each have secrets they have to tell each other or they risk losing what they have found together.  Dylan reveals he is a Fixer; he fixes murder scenes to look like accidents.  Brooke has to tell Dylan about the accident in which her high school boyfriend and her cousin were killed.  

Book two, Promiscuous, starts out with the Brooke's sister Stephanie being attacked and seriously injured.  It appears as though someone is trying to harm Brooke.  While Stephanie is in the hospital, Brooke finds out her family has been hiding some very large skeletons in the closet.  All the drama brings Dylan and Brooke closer together; he is her rock.  

Dylan proposes and of course Brooke accepts.  During all the wedding planning craziness, they find out that someone has placed a price on Brooke's head.  Dylan whisks her away to safety in Ireland and surprises her with a dream wedding there.

Book three, Redemption, tells the story of Brooke's recovery from her abduction and Dylan's recovery from the wounds he obtained during her rescue.  Brooke is mentally scarred from her ordeal and struggles with all the rage inside herself.  She refuses to be a victim any longer and seeks revenge for past wrongs.

Dylan feels guilty that it took them so long to find Brooke and he blames himself for everything that happened during that time.  He loves Brooke with all his heart but doesn't know if can find their way back to one another.  Redemption is about laying the past to rest for once and for all time.  

Hopefully I haven't spoiled things too much for you all.  The author did a great job mixing the erotic romance with intrigue.  You were kept guessing what would happen next but found it very credible when it did happen.  I was very impressed with the caliber of the series and would not hesitate to read other works by the author.  It was thoroughly enjoyable.
