Tempt The Playboy


Preorder exclusively via


a wealthy man who spends his time enjoying himself, especially one who behaves irresponsibly or is sexually promiscuous.
Synonyms: socialite, pleasure seeker.

I have it all, money, looks, and any woman I want.
Till I meet her and my universe is knocked on its ass and she wants nothing to do with me.

My motto: never date the same man twice. I have less chance of breaking my heart that way.
Till my eyes land on the only man I’ll break my rule for.

She thinks she can run. That I’ll let her get away.

He thinks he can handle a woman like me.
He has no idea.

A man who has it all needs one thing and one thing only. A temptress.

Watch me Tempt the Playboy.



When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

See what our review team is saying about Obsession

I felt so many emotions with this book which proves to me how good it is! Yet again there were twists in the plot that i never ever would of guessed and that to me makes this 5 stars! I love unpredicable but then i love how they bring it all together seamlessly. I was on the edge of my sofa through a lot of this and i wont give away one thing from this book because i suggest you get your one click finger ready!
The only thing i am annoyed about it the fact i want Jets book and i want it now !! Haha

Another well written, hold on tight for a convoluted ride story. I love the back story and that this not just a typical romance story. There is a lot of meat in the story, action and hot sex. Bracken is a strong alpha, and although I love alphas, he was a bit too strong for me. Some of the scenes disturbed me a bit, but that is on me. Just not my cup of tea. The overall story was exciting and I can’t wait to read Jet’s story.

I think I need a cold shower after this book. 
Brecken – That man could melt icebergs with his fucking hotness and flood the damn world. 
This book is full of complete Alpha Male Dominance, but every Alpha needs a week spot and for Brecken that weak spot was Skye. I loved the banter back and forth between the two especially her stubborness. This book was full of some twists and turns some of which I didn’t see coming. 
The sex scenes in this were fucking panty melting, ovary exploding, scorching fucking hotness. 
Some of my commentary while reading this book.
That bitch 
That motherfucker
Oh my god 
You get the point. 
We also get introduced to a new character in this series, Jet and let me tell you he made me laugh while also had me wanting to know more about him. I’m ready for the next one.

This series just keeps getting better! I LOVE case, but Brecken?? he could melt your panties with one look.
this book has everything, it’s suspenseful, it’s hot, there’s danger, there’s a protective alpha male, twists and turns everywhere that you wouldn’t see coming.
I wish I could give more stars to show how amazing this book is ❤

Obsession is the 2nd book in the Seven Deadly Sins series. Brecken’s story can be read as a STANDALONE!

I have lost those who I have loved.
I have bled for those I hate.
I have lied to those who are honest.
What am I?

You’re a sinner dressed in white.
You’re a ghost in the night.
You’re the demons that I fight.
Who are you?

Both of us were sinners. She was hell-bent on revenge, and I was determined to let her have it. She was a beautiful sin that alone would be my damnation. And for her, I was willing to dig my own grave. She took what little pride I had left and made me look like a fool. I lusted for a taste of her darkness, for it was the same color as mine. I envied the way she was able to say no, as if she really meant it. I will endure the wrath of having her no matter the cost of my greed. But I have always been a glutton for punishment without any propensity of sloth. She became my obsession and like any other drug, she took all the pain away but brought me to a new level of low. Too bad falling in love with her brought on a different kind of hell that I wasn’t sure we would live through. We were both running from a past that was going to tear apart out future. What I thought was going to be a beautiful beginning turned out to be a torturous end.

Wow! This book is incredible. Just when you think its going amazing well, your heart gets ripped out and stomped on. This book gives you all the feels. Just wow.

For me, I finished this on probably the poop-ish day of the year, as its the anniversary to a similar situation. Having said that, I enjoyed the story line. Although I don’t think it was the best written, as it was a little rough in the spelling and wording. Definitely worth a read though. Now I’m off to read Selfish.

First off can I just say OMG!!! This is my first book by Shantel that I have read and shes definitely made me a fan for life. I did not expect all the twist and turns this book have but it was an amazing read. The ending brought me both tears (way tooooo many lol) and happiness as well. I am on a total book hangover now because of all the emotions that this book brought. If you really enjoy books that bring you lots of feels as your reading through them I HIGHLY recommend this book. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!!! Dash and Tabatha meet at a party randomly and end up having a romance for the books!

Dash OMG let’s just say this book has all the dayummm feels.  An almost let’s say forbidden love at first. The bad boy biker, with no regard for the law with the daughter of a racing legend/owner. They aren’t supposed to be together but their chemistry is undeniable. I fell hard for Dash in this one and let me tell you that Shantel Tessier absolutely destroys me and leaves me in a fetal position by the end of this with a bittersweet yet so heartwarming ending. You will be left tortured for days with this book.

I’ve never been one to follow the rules…or the law, for that matter. But when you find yourself behind bars and being offered the opportunity of a lifetime, you take it. I agreed to race motorcycles for Johnny Knight. A very powerful man who wanted me on his team, even knowing I was a liability. But will he still feel that way once he finds out that I had a one-night stand with his daughter? I didn’t mean for it to happen. I didn’t even know who she was until she walked into his office wearing my shirt from the night before. Too bad that was all she wanted-one night. It really didn’t matter who she was, I wanted more. So when she ran, I followed. I should have let her go. That would have been best for both of us. But I have never done what was right, why start now? I’ve always been willing to take a risk, no matter what it would cost me. And I knew she was worth it all.

I’m Erik Dashling, you can call me Dash. This is my story of how I willingly risked one dream for another. But everyone knows that now all dreams come true.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Friends to Lovers Romance

Checkmate: This is Reckless & This is Effortless is a friends to lovers romance will have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?

Drew Fisher is the type of guy every girl wants.
Noble police officer by day, charming prince by night.

He has no idea the effect he has on women, especially Courtney—his little sister’s best friend. She’s the blonde Southern belle who lives up to the cliché, except she has her own quirks. She’s smart as a whip, can change her own oil, and recite The Pledge of Allegiance backward, but no matter what, he doesn’t see that girl. It’d be easier to forget him if he wasn’t Courtney’s roommate and if the first thing she saw in the morning wasn’t his shirtless body covered in tattoos. She’s crushed on him since the day they met, but he’s made it perfectly clear where they stand. Just friends.

Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.
Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.
She barged into Drew’s life and they easily became best friends.
All was great as roommates and just friends, but then he started to fall for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.
She’s the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and he wants her.

One drunken hookup leaves them with much more than a platonic friendship.
Pretending it never happened proves to be more difficult than either of them anticipated.
A crazy ex-girlfriend, a dangerous war of stolen glances, and passionate kisses leads to the most reckless battle yet.

Loving each other comes easy, but losing their friendship will break them. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls them together. In the end, Drew strives to prove they’re worth the fight, even when the game is far from over.

Title: Mercy
Author: Debra Anastasia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 21, 2017
He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs
through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it
doesn’t keep him from coming out.
My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except
 her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved
me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her
into a target.
My father holds a grudge and knife with the same
proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who
can save her.


Mercy!!!!!!!!!!!!! I immediately wanted this book because well that cover called to me.

This book is full of some angst, a bit of heart break, danger, and a man that I absolutely fell in love with.

Fenix oh my gawd he was scary to others and my heart just shattered for him because he the lengths he goes to to escape his past and the evilness of his father just destroyed me a bit. This is really a book that tells us that you don’t judge someone based on their appearance and you don’t know what someone has truly gone through in life.

This book definitely had me engaged with the story of Fenix and how he felt the need to protect those that may not have been able to protect themselves. His methods weren’t always on the up and up but regardless his determination to protect and his absolute devotion to them made me love him even more.

I definitely wanted him and Rebecca to find an HEA even if it was unconventional and dangerous. This story didn’t disappoint and it was so told in such a way that I could picture exactly what the characters looked like in my head.

If you are looking for a book that will have you captivated by the characters, the story and their journey from the beginning up until the end that definitely get this book. I could even venture to say that this is a modern day Beauty and the Beast but with far more danger, far more obstacles and way more heartbreak.

See what the review team is saying about If The Shoe Fits

A Cinderella story
I really enjoyed reading this book. It definitely was the Cinderella type story with a sexy twist to it. Although in this book she at least got along with one of her step-sisters for most of the book and eventually works through issues with both her other step-sister and step-mother. She meets her prince charming at an event and things spark from there. They have an instant connection and things move forward quickly. I definitely recommend reading this book. Cute romance with some steamy scenes make it for a great read.

Do not get me wrong, i enjoyed the storyline. I would of liked a bit more drama within the storyline, but it was sweet none the less. I would of rated 4 stars but i could not look past the mountain of errors within the book. A few would be fine but i was in double figures.
