SHELLY'S 4 STAR REVIEW:
Excerpt #1“Seriously Nikko.” She rolled her eyes at him, just shook her head, and began to fiddle with the wrapping on her straw. She popped it into the top of the Styrofoam container, and then took a sip of her strawberry milkshake, a long one.
He watched her curiously. He knew he had been flirting, but only to make her jealous, and realize what she missed out on last summer by running from him. He began to peel the paper off of his own straw when she finally came up for air. He wished those lips were sucking something else. His cock was enjoying the thought immensely. He was grateful the table was hiding his powerful erection.
As Ronnie took another pull on the straw she saw Nikko squirm on the seat uncomfortably as he tried to get his straw unwrapped. “Oh yes!” she whispered huskily and licked her lips. She put the straw back in her mouth to suck a little more of the frothy, creamy concoction into her mouth. Two, could play his game, she thought, as his jaw hit the dirt. She could make more out of her enjoyment of the milkshake than she really felt and give him a little dose of his own medicine. She released the straw and then darted out her tongue to lick the tiny bubble of ice cream that appeared on top. Nikko jammed his straw into his own mouth and looked at her fiercely. Smiling and then ignoring him, she popped the straw back into her mouth sucking greedily.
Nikko’s mouth dropped at the sight of Ronne’s lips on the straw, sucking. And her words practically had him shoot a load like he was a teenaged boy again. His blood was pumping in his veins. The wrong veins, or maybe the right ones. He felt his cock in his pants stir against the constraints. The second, no maybe third time that day, she’d made him harder than the Rock of Gibraltar. He shifted on the wooden seat uncomfortably. His balls would be blue in no time if she continued her little sensuous torment much longer. He knew what she was doing, but that didn’t, couldn’t stop his reaction to it.
He finally took another sip of his own drink needing the coolness of it to tame the flames she was fanning. It was good. “Oh yes,” he teased her back saying it breathily. “So good!” he purred and went in for another sip.
They exchanged glances over their straws and then both of them couldn’t help themselves, they burst out laughing simultaneously.
They laughed, and for Ronnie it felt good. It was the first time she had laughed in days, and had not thought about all the things she had to face. For Nikko, it was startling. He realized he loved her laugh, and would like to hear her do that more often. Like last summer, he realized there was something about this girl who made him want more than just a roll in the hay. But, he couldn’t think of that now.
Meet the Marino Brothers
Excerpt #2Ronnie knew she was drunk because this was just feeling so good. She needed to stop him. But somehow she couldn’t. He smelled so damn good. The cologne, the sea breeze, the wind, and his tongue trailing down her neck had her senses spiraling. That and the three glasses of champagne she had consumed. His lips and teeth nuzzled her neck, little nips that felt like tiny explosions. His hand slid up her rib cage. She felt the timeless exploration under her breast as he tested its weight. He gently squeezed, and then flicked her nipple beneath the thin material of the bridesmaid gown she wore. He pulled the cup down and a cool blast of night air hit her before his mouth descended on the tiny bud. His mouth was hot. Oh yes! His tongue divine as it titillated her even further. She was the opposite of senseless. She was on fire.
Nikko couldn’t believe his luck. The blond beauty had given him the cold shoulder whenever their paths crossed. But, the little ice princess had warmed up to him. All it had taken was a few drinks, a few dances, and a few suggestions whispered in her ear. He murmured his appreciation around the mouthful of the most amazing breasts he had ever seen in his twenty six years. This little spitfire with the snapping brown eyes had continued to ignore him throughout the ceremony. But at the reception, she loosened up. Let her hair down so to speak. Once he got her on the dance floor, and showed her a few moves, she came undone and began to relax. He liked her like this. Very much.
“Oh God!” she whimpered as he circled her nipple with his tongue and then gently pulled on it with his teeth. She was tugging on his dark hair, pulling him closer, showing him her true nature. She wanted this, and he was more than happy to comply.
They met two weeks ago at the rehearsal dinner for his cousin’s wedding. From that moment, he knew he wanted her, underneath him, on top, he didn’t care. She was every man’s wet dream even though it seemed like she didn’t know it. And right now, she was making one of his fantasies come true, up against a palm tree on the beach in a relatively secluded alcove. She was pushing against him, craving the contact. There was no denying he relished it. And he thanked his lucky stars, because he wanted her, badly. His cock had been at attention all through their dances. Now, it was straining against his black dress pants needing its own gratification.
But, he meant to please her first. She was leaning against the coarse bark of a skinny palm, on the beach where hours earlier his cousin, Victor, wed his lovely bride, Monica. His free hand snaked up her thigh. It was shapely. The girl’s legs were defined, hard under the smooth surface. He could feel her muscles tremble under her silky skin as he slid his hand up the inside of her leg. He cupped her, and again she pushed into his touch. Not one to deny anyone their pleasure, least of all himself, he felt Ronnie part her legs and slid a finger inside. She was already aroused, and wet. He began to flick her clit as she squirmed in time to his ministrations.
“Oh God, Nikko . . .,” she murmured, “that feels so . . .”

Can a hot cowboy convince Lauren to stay in Texas and take another chance on love?
Tucker Carver likes to have fun and has no intention of settling down anytime soon. He handles the business side of Carver Ranch for his family, and on the day he's scheduled to meet with their accountant, he instead meets a beautiful woman who changes everything.
Lauren Ford packed up and moved to Texas to start over after her fiancé had an affair with her best friend. Her father's retiring and has offered to let her take over his accounting firm. When she meets Tucker she's immediately taken with him, despite his reputation as a ladies' man. Knowing she isn't looking for love, or even if she wants to stay in Texas, she decides to have fun with Tucker and keep her feelings at bay.
After one taste of Lauren, Tucker has other plans. Lauren is the woman he wants, but for some reason she's resisting. And it doesn't help when her ex-fiancé shows up in town wanting her to go back to Georgia with him. Can Tucker convince her that his feelings are true, or will he lose her forever?
Content Warning: contains adult language and explicit sexual scenes
Beachwalk Press: http://beachwalkpress.com/counting-cowboys/
Counting Cowboys is the first book I have ever read by Lacey Wolfe. It was a very sweet but quick read. This is the first book in the series and I definitely recommend it to those who like quick reads.
Tucker and his brothers run Carver Ranch and let me tell you they are some sexy cowboys. He also helps manage the financial side of the Ranch business and when the new accountant walks in to meet with him he definitely gets more than he bargained for. Lauren is the daughter of their current accountant and she is a beautiful lady. Tucker works hard and plays harder and has no intentions of settling down any time soon. Will Lauren be the one to change his mind about settling down or will he continue with his playboy ways?
Lauren has moved to Texas to help her dad and to get away from her ex fiancé who cheated on her with he so called best friend. She is immediately attracted to Tucker but isn't interested in a relationship right now. Tucker invites her to the local tavern and she agrees to meet him there. There are sparks flying between them but what happens when Lauren's ex comes waltzing back into town? Will she forgive her ex and move back with him or has Tucker gotten under her skin enough that she will stay with him?
I enjoyed the connection between Lauren and Tucker. I felt that the story lacked depth. Everything moved so quickly and I would have like to see more relationship development. The story ends very quickly and I would have liked to read more into their story. I can only hope that we will see more of these two in future books.
Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats and one black lab who rules the house.

~ SYNOPSIS ~
Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her price charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.
Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?
On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.
Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?

Wow! Just when I thought it couldn't get better, it did! By leaps and bounds because Breaking Bennett was right up my alley!! Ms. Jolin's storytelling is fast paced, captivating and gripping from the Prologue all the way through. I thought Jami would be hard to beat as my Rock Falls guy but Brax has taken his place and then some. I read this entire book in one sitting. Anne switched up her writing style some in this one. There's less sex but in the sex-less gap there is much more intrigue, suspense and drama.. a bit darker I would say. AND I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!! Don't worry the sex scenes between Brax and Beth are still melt your panties hot.
Braxton Bennett is a walking contradiction who CONTROLS everything in his life down to what I feel is the smallest details. Brax fights his demons in two totally different ways. During the day he slays his demons in the courtroom. At night he beats them to death in the cage. He is such a sexy complexity!! Oh and did I mention tattooed and hot as sin!? Now back to why he insists upon control.. His two worlds MUST NEVER collide.. BUT they do and they do in a big way..
Beth is sitting on top of the world, walking on sunshine, living in the clouds... Well, you get it! She's Damn HAPPY. Her life is as perfect as it can be.. Perfect friends, perfect family, perfect job and of course the perfect boyfriend. In one day all her Sunshine and Happiness fades to black. One night she is in a near death situation and is saved by a dark night. This meeting sets off a domino effect neither of them see coming especially when she meets the dark night in the light of day and realizes Mr. Tall, Dark and Dangerous is a lawyer too.
I love Beth's character. She doesn't submit to his control easily, shes snarky, sarcastic, and fights him at every turn. Shes his perfect compliment and I love her in every way. She knows when to say when though and that's why they work so well together!
Watching the story unfold, literally feeling the suspense, and connecting to the characters are exactly why I give Breaking Bennett 5 HUGE stars!!!

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~
I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me.
We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on.
During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!
