Cover Re-Reveal: Owen (Vale #1) by Sarah Darlington & Alora Kate

COVER RE-REVEAL!!!
Title: OWEN
Authors: Alora Kate & Sarah Darlington

When a beautiful woman grabs you, presses her soft lips to yours, and strips off all her clothes … you don’t think, you act.


I had no idea my brother came early with his girlfriend to our family’s cabin in Colorado.

I had no idea she wasn’t just another girl I’d picked up at the bar.

I’d been drinking.
These were all excuses. And by a stroke of luck, no one caught us together, and Joslyn didn’t seem to notice the difference between me and my twin. So maybe all is right with the world. Maybe I can pretend nothing happened and move past this.

Except…I like this girl.

Review: Savage Love (Savage Trilogy #3) by Lisa Renee Jones

Title: Savage Love
Author:  Lisa Renee Jones
Publisher/Year:  CreateSpace Publishing 4/21/20
Length:  240 Pages
Series:  Savage Trilogy #3

Overview

They say all is fair in love and war, but I really don’t give a damn about fair. In fact, when protecting those I love, fair is the last thing on my mind. Now that I’m back in Candace’s life, those who have used her to try to control me, may well put up a final fight, but they will not win. They will lose and badly.

My Thoughts

I really do love savage and i’m really enjoying his time with Candace, however when we left off at the end of book 2, we saw that there was a chance that they weren’t going to come out of this unscathed. I ‘mean, honestly, it’s really silly (slash stupid) to think that they won’t get their happily ever after, but to my wording choice at least, unscathed is the better description.

While going to the cemetery to search for the flash drive that Savage hid at his mother’s grave, of course drama has to follow – in the form of Wes, a man that has a vendetta against Savage for killing his wife (which was deserved based on the story we were told) and he has Candace by the throat with a knife there as well. There’s just a moment to react to save her life and that’s what Rick does – freeing Candace from his grasp and giving them a moment to flee safely (ish).

If only the drama stopped there, right? We know that there are so many uncertain pieces to this story – understanding who is going end up alive, who’s going to find out the motives behind everything and how to finish it all off. I know that the Walkers have some intense skill, so it’s only everyone’s guess that they they will prevail right?

We spend much of this final installment on the run. Every time we think there’s a moment to breathe, another adversary comes out. Tag is s till a wild card since Savage knows that he’s dirty yet doesn’t know how to bring him down without triggering all sorts of things. Gabriel is twisted and dirty on so many levels that it’s a mess in the making too. Candace is pulled into this every time she tries to get out because they what to make sure that she’s. safe meaning that she has to play the doting fiance (even knowing everything that she does about him)

Add to that, her father is still being held and they need to extract him, and then an assassin is put on Candace’s tail, one that doesn’t always follow the rules, so we see the call for help from a cartel lord – one that we haven’t met in this series, but one that’s from another LRJ series (which i’m going to pick up soon i think). Kane Mendez is a man that many fear, no one knows how to read, but that Savage trusts. It’s his assistance that helps in more ways than you can imagine.

So a roller coaster for sure, a story that gives you hope, takes it away and then gives you a new path to go down. We get to see the introduction of so many guys in the Walker family that i feel it’s our amazing authors way of keeping this series alive (for which i’m very thankful) and i can’t wait to get more. We also get the sexy intense passion and heat that we always come to expect from Ms Jones when we read her stories, and what Savage and Candace share is something that’s for the record books. It shows you that there’s so much that can come between a couple, but if you stay true to the heart of what you believe and know, that there’s a chance to make it. So, on that note, you have to read this story to see how it really evolves since it’s insane, but i think you’ll enjoy it!

Review: Savage Burn (Savage Trilogy #2) by Lisa Renee Jones

Title: Savage Burn
Author:  Lisa Renee Jones
Publisher/Year:  Independent 3/27/20
Length:  184 Pages
Series:  Savage #2

Overview

The second book in the Savage Trilogy…My name is Rick Savage but they call me Savage for a reason. But savage that I am, there is only one woman who can tame the beast in me, one woman who sees the real man. I loved Candace. I lost Candace. Now my enemies have targeted her. For this, they will not survive. I’m back home to save her and win her back, no matter what the cost.

My Thoughts

This series is getting Nasty in one of the best ways. We all love Savage and we all want the best for him since it seems as though he’s got the full package. The ability to protect, loyalty, he’s beyond intelligent, and he’s sexy. Candace saw that once years and years ago, and throughout the first book of this series we saw that she still sees it – big time.

We were left off from the first installment with these two facing Tag – an adversary that can’t win against Savage in a clean fight or a dirty one, but he tries and tries and tries. Using Candace as leverage, using her father as leverage and we see right off the bat in this book, using Savage’s father. That doesn’t work, but what it does show us is that there’s so much more to the story that we can’t wait to dive into.

Throughout this second book, we see the Walker institution come through big time, and i see EXACTLY what our amazing author is doing here with the introduction of a few new guys. We’re getting to see exactly how she plans to keep this whole group of series going. it’s smart and now i can’t wait to learn about these new guys.

Anyway – back to Candace and Savage. They are on the run again, hoping to figure out what’s going on and how to come out of everything alive before it’s too late, and it seems like every time they think they have made progress, a new obstacle pops up. The mystery of where Candace’s father is, and if he’s alive. The mystery of where Savage’s mission buddy Max is and wondering if it’s related. Wondering where the hiding spot is for all the evidence that could shut things down in a legal way. ….

On top of all that though is the notion that Candace and Savage still have so much history between them. They were engaged once and had a life planned out that Rick had to run away from to protect her. He’s back with NO intention of leaving her again, but that’s really hard for Candace to believe since she can only base her choices on what she’s seen so far. It’s hard for her to still love him so much but still fear that this will be a broken record.

What we do get to enjoy is EXACTLY what our author LRJ does best – the hot chemistry that leaps off the pages so high that smoke detectors go off. There’s passion because of such a deep connection that’s so clear and intense4. I love seeing the guy that we all knew Savage was come to life and even with the INSANE cliff hanger at the end, i want to hope for the best here. We know that everyone will NOT end up alive, and i’m really excited to see who ends p with us in April (since i now have to wait until April 21 for the final book). Enjoy!

Review: Dirty Pleasures (Dirty Billionaire #2) by Meghan March

Title: Dirty Pleasures
Author:  Meghan March
Publisher/Year:  Meghan March LLC 12/23/15
Length:  188 Pages
Series:  Dirty Billionaire #2

Overview

I did it. I married a billionaire.
My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.
I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.
Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.
There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…
I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.

My Thoughts

Two leading characters who are so driven by their careers that they have to decide if they can fit someone else in their life, even when it’s already too late given that they are married. Nothing is permanent right?

Holly made her deal breakers clear and Crey seemed to understand ad respect that, until he didn’t. And he messed up, and she left. That’s where we were left off at the end of the first book, Holly had to get to her tour, and so she left him because while he promised to be back in time to get her on the jet home, he wasn’t answering texts or calls and she had to make the decision on her own.

The first few chapters we spend watching Holly try to get back into the tour mindset, and we see that there are actually some great people with her who appreciate her talent and her heart. not everyone is scum and that’s really nice to see. Her friend Tana is there again to help her see reason, and to help her when she’s down, and i think that everyone needs a friend like that. Once Creighton realizes that she’s left, and figures out that she’s gone on tour, well, that voice of reason is going to be super helpful.

Then there’s Crey, and once he figures out why he screwed up and how to find her, all bets are off in seeing what this man will do to get his wife back. It’s nice to see that he’s so devoted to her, so smitten and in love with her that he’ll go to any length. What we see though in this story which is so rare compared to others, is that while he’s a billionaire, while he has this empire that he runs, he basically drops it all for her because that’s how important she is.

He grovels, they figure it out, until they don’t, and that’s where we are left at the end. Another . good-bye note, yet this one seems much more permanent.

Throughout this story, we get a lot of great dynamics through in, in addition to their relationship stuff. We have BT who’s the headliner on Holly’s tour, and while he looks rough, he’s really a teddy bear and he tries to make Crey see things that he’s not willing to see, given that their lives are so different. We are also faced with Holly’s mom through a series of annoying events, and that brings down the mood of the book too.

Underneath all that though is the great steamy chemistry that these two have. I still can’t say passion because it seems one sided, but i’m hoping that by the end of this trilogy, i’ll be able to use that word. I want a happy ending, but seeing how his high society life brings her down time and time again, i don’t know what’s realistic. I guess that’s what book three is for. So….i’m off to read it and i’ll let you know soon! Enjoy!V

Review: Five Dark Fates (Three Dark Crowns #4) by Kendare Blake

Title: Five Dark Fates
Author:  Kendare Blake
Publisher/Year:  HarperCollins Publishing 9/3/19
Length:  331 Pages
Series:  Three Dark Crowns #4

Overview

In the final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns series, an all-out war is brewing—one that will pit sister against sister and dead against undead.

After the grim confrontation with Queen Katharine, the rebellion lies in tatters. Jules’s legion curse has been unbound, and it is up to Arsinoe to find a cure, even as the responsibility of stopping the ravaging mist lies heavy on her shoulders, and her shoulders alone. Mirabella has disappeared.

Katharine’s reign remains intact—for now. When Mirabella arrives, seemingly under a banner of truce, Katharine begins to yearn for the closeness that Mirabella and Arsinoe share. But as the two circle each other, the dead queens hiss caution—Mirabella is not to be trusted.

In this conclusion to the Three Dark Crowns series, three sisters will rise to fight as the secrets of Fennbirn’s history are laid bare. Allegiances will shift. Bonds will be tested. But the fate of the island lies in the hands of its queens. It always has.

My Thoughts

Even though it’s been quite some time since book 3 came out until now, and even though i’ve read quite a few things in between, the moment i started reading this fourth installment, i felt that we were right back where we had left off.

Things on the island are a mess, Katherine is still the Undead Queen, and Jules is still dealing with the ramifications of the Legion Curse that’s been released with the murder of her mother. Mirabella and Arsinoe are stuck in the middle of things once again as they have to pick sides while remaining true to themselves.

Add to all this, the fact that Peityr is still unconscious and no one knows how to wake him, especially as Katherine is the only one who knows what’s caused him to sleep.

The questions in this book overpower the answers and I can honestly say that I didn’t know how this story was going to play out. One thing for sure – we were going to lose many many characters here in this finale. There’s no doubt in my mind that many mains will die, and where that leaves the island will be anyone’s guess.

The Mist continues to be a power that no one can beat. Mirabella is the only one who’s been able to push it back, to keep it from killing more – but the assumption is that it’s because she’s the strongest elemental. There’s a theory that they need to kill her in order for the mist to go away – but that’s a price that no one truly wants to pay. (or do they).

The Rebellion being led by Jules shows us that the Legion Queen perhaps has more power than the triplet queens and that scares people. When we get about 2/3 into the story – we learn some of the origin story of the queens since the first queens weren’t included in the history that everyone learned and there’s an interesting twist there. Of course though, resulting in a death.

We know that the only way this story will end is after a war happens – laying out a new future for the island. The war finds itself at the gates of The Volroy, being fought by everyone including the undead, and it’s so intense that the mist wants in on it as well.

Friendships are created, torn apart, and the same goes for relationships (loving and otherwise). We see some of the chemistry that has played out in this series so far, and we see surprises of people who put their loyalties in new places. The outcome of those twists make this story even more exciting.

Betrayal, Trust, Love, Hate, Fear, Secrecy, Competition. All very deep themes of this series and they all play out in a strong way in this final book 4. I’m a bit sad to see this journey end, but i think that we were given what we needed to see the closure happen for whomever is left. Enjoy!

Review: Boss Games (Boss #7) by Victoria Quinn

Title: Boss Games
Author:  Victoria Quinn
Publisher/Year:  Createspace Publishing 3/9/18
Length:  150 Pages
Series:  Boss #7

Overview

I’ve found quite a woman.

Wealthy. Smart. Hooooot.

So hot.

She was supposed to be a plaything.

But I can’t help but wonder if I’m the one being played.

My Thoughts

I think this book summary is a bit closer to being target thankfully. In the last book, we were living through the hell known as Titan being shot, We know now that she’ll survive and that she and Hunt are as close as ever. We see the relationship with Vincent solidify both with Hunt/Titan as well as with Brett (just a bit though) and that means that at least one aspect of the world is in place.

Then there’s Thorn. So he’s being the supportive best friend and steps in to run Titan’s business while she’s recovering and that puts him in the path of one Ms Autumn Alexander. A woman who is just like Titan in the sense that she’s young, beautiful, but more importantly, she’s successful, extremely intelligent and knows exactly what she wants out of her business. She’s looking to partner with Titan, and Titan only wants to buy her out. Thorn tries to finalize the deal but realizes that 1) it’ll never happen because Autumn is too confident as to what she wants/needs and 2) that there’s an intense attraction between them, and he wants to know more.

So while the last book implied that he was going to find his path with a new partner, it really happens in this book. He gets Autumn to agree to a ‘casual yet exclusive’ relationship and it’s interesting to see how it plays out.

The other nice piece to this story is that we get to spend more time with Vincent. Titan has gotten in his head that perhaps he should be open to finding someone appropriate to spend his life with since he’s still young and everything else in his life is in order. When he’s approached by the editor of a fashion magazine to do an interview and spread, he doesn’t have high hopes for it but finds that the woman who he meets has some intriguing spark, something that draws him in and he wants to know more.

All in all we get to watch two new relationships form and it’s really great to spend time with characters outside of our mains. It gives this series a fresh feeling after 6 books and i can’t wait to see how everything plays out.

The Nice twist at the end – the introduction of someone new, but someone that i’ve waiting to see makes the cliff hanger all that much more interesting. So, on that note, i’m going to track down book 8 and see what comes next. Enjoy!

Review: Boss Alpha (Boss #5) by Victoria Quinn

Title: Boss Alpha
Author:  Victoria Quinn
Publisher/Year:  Createspace Publishing 2/23/18
Length:  168 Pages
Series:  Boss #5

Overview

Tatum Titan is mine now.

I finally got her back.

But we have a city to rule together.

A world to conquer.

And there’s no other woman I’d want by my side.

My Thoughts

This story keeps getting better and better. We still don’t know who’s the leak and what the motivation is, but throughout this fifth installment, we see worlds continue to crumble, and everything seem to be getting worse.

Hunt’s goal of finding out motives falls short. As a result, Thorn and Tatum are now engaged. Their lives are moving forward while he’s not willing to let go. That’s the thing about true and deep love – you can’t let go so easily even when it seems like there’s no hope. The persistence pays off in some forms because Tatum allows a new arrangement so that they can still be in each others lives, but in a new way. Rather the original way – no commitment, but allowing their passion and intensity come through in life.

That’s not good enough though for either and what we see happen from here on out makes this story even more exciting. The underlying issue of someone finding out about them and blackmailing them continues to be a thing, and what we see is that it’s Hunt’s father who becomes the worst in this situation. He’s already burned by the fact that Hunt bought Megaland, and uses that against him to get the company back or lose Tatum. When he gets his way, it’s still not enough and then he goes after something more personal.

At the same time, we see Tatum and Thorn moving forward with their arrangement – planning the wedding, building their future. What bugs me here is that i still don’t trust Thorn, he keeps talking about what he would have when they merge their assets, when they are married. Once he proposes, he even gets more touchy with her, more physical and that still irks me for some reason. I don’t trust him.

All of our main characters are forced to take really long looks internally and better understand what it is that they need in life and can’t live without vs what they want. When those things don’t match up, we know that there will be repercussions, but those are the important choices. Hunt makes his choice quickly, and he knows what is essential for life. Tatum in essence knows what that is, but she’s not ready to pull the trigger. Thorn i think doesn’t know what’s necessary for survival – just what fits in his image.

What i really like about this fifth book is that we see people trying to take higher roads, even through moments of tension and hatred. Tatum goes out of her way to get others to change their mind, to change their approach even at the potential sacrifice of herself. The reputation that she’s built all these years and the image that is her persona. I think that there’s hope coming from her that empowers others, but at the same time, all the broken trust, and mis-directed hatred pulls everyone off track.

The other nice thing about this story is that throughout the entire series, the chemistry and heat that Tatum and Hunt share continues to be beyond intense. Like next level intense. We know that control and rules, and power are both of their things, but the way that it manifests on the page is beyond hot, and i can’t wait to see how this all plays out. On that note, i think there’s a book six and i’m off to find it! Enjoy!

Review: Empress in Lingerie (Lingerie #5) by Penelope Sky

Title: Empress in Lingerie
Author:  Penelope Sky
Publisher/Year:  Createspace Publishing 6/6/18
Length:  167 pages
Series:  Lingerie #5

Overview

I’m Vanessa Barsetti, the daughter of the infamous Crow Barsetti.

My father taught me how to fight. If a man lays a hand on me, I’ll put him in his grave. As a Barsetti, I’m proud, stubborn, and don’t take nonsense from anybody. 

I walk home from a bar and take the wrong path.

And witness a brutal crime.

The murderer won’t let me go. He’s handsome, lethal, and terrifying. With tattoos on his forearms and a presence full of threat, he’s a shade of evil I’ve never encountered. And then he tells me the most terrifying thing of all.

His name is Bones.

My Thoughts

Vanessa can’t catch a break now can she? First she was kidnapped and almost murdered by Knuckles – the guy who had a vendetta against Sapphire, and now she crosses paths with Bones Jr who has a vendetta against the entire Barsetti family. Poor girl. No matter how good of a fighter she is, she’s gotta cave at some point. or does she?

we know from the last book that the family discovered that Bones (the one who bought Pearl) had a son, but they didn’t know much about him. What we learn here is a bit more about who he is, what his life has been like and why he’s got a chip on his shoulder. He’s drawn the short stick because his mother was Bone’s mistress, and when he was killed by Pearl and family, she was left with nothing. When she was forced into prostitution to support her son, well that didn’t turn out well either and she was murdered and Bones was left on his own.

Where we are now in present day is just shortly after Vanessa’s horrible situation with Knuckles, she’s back to her old life and trying to really move past everything. She’s back at school, she’s getting involved with men again, but her guard is up. She takes different routes home every night in case someone is trying to follow her and wait to scoop her up, she’s taken precautions again in her home, but unfortunately for her, the route she takes home one night is the wrong one. Because she comes across a man murdering another man in an alley, and her life is changed forever. She’s kidnapped and when the man realizes who she is, things get worse fast.

Bones knows who Vanessa is, and while he’s got this score to settle with the family, he wasn’t actively pursuing her. She fell into his lap and that’s the best blessing he could have hoped for. He has his plan to kill her on video, send it to her parents and make them suffer. The problem though, as we’ve seen with Pearl and Adalina, these women are able to exude confidence, sexuality, power, and all of those things combined make their keepers unable to follow through in what they wanted to do. Vanessa makes a pea for Bones to let her go by offering herself to him, and from that point, we see a corner that they’ve turned.

The balance of the story that we have here is the endless question of what Bones is going to do with Vanessa and what chance will she have at freedom. The game that he’s playing is an interesting one because he keeps her hostage for about a week, and then allows her to go home, to live her life, have her phone, interact with her family, but if she breathes a word of anything to them, they are all dead. You can only imagine the complexity here since this is a family that doesn’t hold anything back, and doesn’t lie.

While she has her freedom though, he’s claimed her. Vanessa is his and no one is allowed to have what he wants and has. This is really where their chemistry becomes something unimaginable. It’s powerful, and intense ,to a level that none of the other couples have shared yet in my opinion. While they need each other as things progress, they also have this hatred and distrust that is a layer that’s unique to their story. The question that you have to remember is who will die since you know someone has to and how is it going to happen. Every time Vanessa thinks that she has the upper hand, she learns that Bones is a step ahead of her.

There are so many other spokes to this story that make me intrigued. For one, Vanessa keeps asking Bones what his real name is and he’s so opposed to sharing. i think there’s a story there that we don’t know yet. Next, Bones has always wanted to know who killed his mother so he could get revenge, and when things are narrowed down, it’s someone who’s maybe too powerful to take down.

The dynamic though of Vanessa and Bones is something that keeps this story moving so quickly. If you remember, Bones the elder was HORRIBLE. he was disgusting, inhumane, and vile. Bones Jr is really trying to be something different because he doesn’t believe in all that his father did, but he has to keep some sense of power because that’s what’s necessary to survive. Because he’s his own man though, we see so many redeeming qualities to Bones and want him to be a better man.

The moments when that man comes out, he is tender, romantic, sweet and really gives Vanessa everything that she could need. But he still has his bite. Vanessa on the other hand is Barsetti through and through and never gives up fighting for what she believes is right either physically or in spirit. The way that she’s able to get through to Bones during certain moments is intense, and that makes their passion and magnetism even more intense. Their scenes are completely reflective of how they are – when they come together, their heat and passion is explosive, hot and well….one of my favorite pairings in the series so far.

So many questions, so few answers. Will the Barsettis figure out what’s going on without Vanessa telling them and what will it mean? Who will come close to killing the other first and what are the repercussions? Will Bones survive trying to avenge his mother’s killing, and will Vanessa be caught in the crossfire? So much to wonder, so now i need the next book. Enjoy!

Review: Lady in Lingerie (Lingerie #3) by Penelope Sky

Title: Lady in Lingerie
Author:  Penelope Sky
Publisher/Year:  Createspace Publishing 5/17/18
Length:  187 pages
Series:  Lingerie #3

Overview

I refuse to let this woman have any power over me.

She’s just my prisoner.

But once my Muse is in trouble, I’ll do anything to save her.

Anything to protect her.

She was supposed to inspire me, please me.

She was never supposed to care about me.

Or make me care about her.

My Thoughts

We get to see the more human side of Conway, the side that his family knows and loves, the side that he doesn’t show anyone, and this is the side that the world should see. All because Sapphire was able to break through some of his walls.

The bulk of this story is taking us on a journey where Conway realizes that he needs ‘Muse’ and she admits to herself that she needs him, but as we’ve seen in the previous installments, she’s not willing to compromise and diminish her worth just to let him feel powerful. The exchange of power between them is complex and entertaining. Conway realizes quickly that without Muse, his work suffers. And when Conway ‘frees’ Sapphire, she realizes that she can’t live without him.

Add to that the layer of the Barsettis that come into play in this story. We get to see a lot more of Vanessa since she and Sapphire have developed a friendship. We see that Conway’s parents are truly happy to see their son finally in a relationship and one with a woman as lovely as Sapphire. We see Carter even begin to take on a more vocal role in things. The dynamic of Carter and Conway is exactly that of Cane and Crow and i really like seeing that.

At the end of the last book, you’ll remember that Sapphire was made an offer to go work for a competitor of Conway, and that’s something that comes back up in this story as well. She’s offered more money than anyone could fathom having, and her feelings for Conway makes it a hard decision to make/turn down/take. It’ll be interesting to see how that one plays out since we know that Mr Lexington reached out to Conway first and then found his way to Sapphire. She still doesn’t know that Conway knew about the offer first.

Add to that, Bones reappears. You’ll remember him from Pearl and Crow’s story and i think that the name alone makes everyone nervous. The way that Conway and Carter discover him puts their families at risk, puts a wedge between everyone who loves each other, instills fear in everyone, and forces the younger generation to make a promise about how they will live their lives moving forward. HUGE compromises for men who are powerful, feel that they are invincible and really don’t like being told what to do.

Where we net out though is an admission of truths, anger and hatred, and all relationships that we thought were solid being pulled apart. It’s anyone’s guess on how things will pan out in the next book, but the names Knuckles, Bones….Skull Kings…they all come to mind and you have every reason to be concerned!

The consistency though that keeps this series going and makes it so enjoyable and engaging is the fact that the dynamic between Conway and Sapphire is hot, and it’s real when they are alone. They share something so deep and romantic, but it’s only behind closed doors. The chemistry that they have, the magnetism that they share is something truly remarkable and very well written in this story, that when you see things crash and burn, you know that there has to be something on the other side – even if it’s different than what was intended. On that note, i’m off to read the next book and i can’t wait to see who ends up where and with whom. Enjoy!

Cover Reveal: Dinner & Dessert by Ava Sterling

One last opportunity to make a move on her. It’s now or never.

Sophia is moving to Tulsa. Her boss made it clear that her position is being phased out, so it’s either relocating to the Midwest or she’s out of a job. Just when she’s getting more friendly with Elizabeth, an employee in her department.

Thinking of a plan, she convinces her boss to let her take out the department’s top performer for dinner as a thank you from the company, who just happens to be Elizabeth. The only snag is that her boss insists she take the top two performers, which also includes Jason.

At dinner, Sophia’s mind is racing on how to make a move on Elizabeth without Jason, and the entire restaurant staff, noticing. This launches a feverish, desperate attempt at pleasure, far beyond anything Sophia’s tried before.

If you enjoy saucy stories of lesbians, bi-curious women, and daring plans, you’ll love Dinner and Dessert.
