Review & Giveaway: The Billionaire’s New Toy by Ava Sterling

Title: The Billionaire’s New Toy
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 5/11/16
Length:   27 Pages

Overview

Claire wants to land the sale of the year, supplying all bedding materials for one of the largest luxury hotel chains in the country. The only thing standing in her way…is Connor Brenton.

A self-made Billionaire, Mr. Brenton is the type to go after what he wants. Now what he wants is Claire, but she’s more interested in padding her sales numbers than an erotic connection. At the sales appointment, it will be decided who gets what they want first.

My Thoughts

I’m a fan of this story – even more than the others that I’ve read recently by Ms Ava Sterling. What we have here is one of my favorite sub segments of the genre – the Alpha powerful man, and the sexy female who thinks that it’s her body that gets her what she wants until she realizes that she truly has the power because of how she carries herself.

What’s sweet about this story is that even though it’s a novella in length, we get an opportunity to see that there was a history between these two characters – a past shared experience and that’s what makes it feel more robust than others that I’ve enjoyed. While Claire clearly has her mind set on keeping her job and that means getting a sale out of a very successful yet handsome hotel owner, what she gets when she makes the attempt is so much more than she bargained for. Mr Benton has his mind set on success – and he is always successful. Will he be in this instance as well?

There’s a sweetness to this story while all the flirtation and heat is underneath. Mr Benton plays with Claire’s emotions and psyche which is a fun twist and the question from them will become how much will Claire bend, what will happen to her job, and what will happen to her. He’s skilled, capable of getting what he wants, when he wants it, and can she handle it? Very good question!

I wish we actually had more of this story as it has feelings of Sylvia Day and J Kenner among other authors when i read it.

Review & Giveaway: Role to Play: A Menage Story by Ava Sterling

Title: Role to Play: A Menage Story
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 6/23/18
Length:   15 Pages

Overview

It’s time to admit her fantasy.

Being the wife of a police officer, Rose’s life is rarely dull. Her husband, Danny, is an attractive man, but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes, there needs to be more.

Danny’s best friend Ellis is the entire package. He’s also a police officer, but with that extra gruff. He’s like Danny but rougher around the edges with just the right amount of stubble gracing his cheeks. 

One night, Danny finally gets Rose’s fantasy out of her, and it involves Ellis. Finding it more agreeable than she ever would’ve guessed, Danny volunteers to arrange everything. It’s then she adds a twist–outdoors, in public, and with a role to play.

She can hardly wait.

My Thoughts

Thank you again to our lovely author Ms Ava Sterling for sharing another fantasy driven read! i’m definitely a fan of women who aren’t afraid to voice their fantasies to their SO and in this case that’s exactly what we get with Rose. She’s been married to a man who wants nothing but to please her and take care of her and she’s content with that. Of course though, there’s always room for more right?

With this couple, we also have the supporting role of the husband Danny’s best friend Ellis. A man that Rose has an attraction to and a man who has been part of a fantasy of hers. The question becomes though – just how willing to please is Danny? Is he willing to share with Ellis and is that something that Ellis is even open to? The other nuance to this fantasy is that Rose wants to live this out in public – that’s another element that can make this dicey and really really hot at the same time.

the question that we ponder while this story plays out is whether or not Danny will give in to what his wife wants, will Ellis participate and what will it mean for the couple and the friends. If nothing else, we know that at least hearing the fantasy that Rose wants to live out will be hot and steamy since that’s what our author always does. It’s always a quick burst of intense heat and chemistry in a way that feels so real and within reach yet so unattainable at the same time. Anyway check it out and enjoy!

Review & Giveaway: After Hours: A Babysitter Story by Ava Sterling

Title: After Hours: A Babysitter Story
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 7/8/17
Length:   17 Pages

Overview

Brooke loves her job. Where else could she make extra cash while spending her days eating ice cream and talking on the phone?

The only thing missing from her life is a confident, mature man–qualities severely lacking from anyone she’s recently dated.

She’s been house sitting for Mr. Hightower off and on for months and never thought of him as anything more than an employer, despite his toned physique and his bold outlook on life. He’s a baseball coach, used to giving orders and people following them. 

In his living room finishing up a shift, she overhears him giving some of these…instructions. She closes her eyes and fantasizes about them in a much different context. Right there and then, she hatches a plan to make him hers.

My Thoughts

OH how i have become a huge fan of these quick reads because they get right to the point without all the dramatic build up. As you guys saw in the previous story that i read by Ava Sterling, we had a leading lady who wasn’t quite satisfied with her life and relationship status. So that of course leads to trouble when you have a sexy female lead who knows what she wants.

In this story, Brooke is a house sitter – not so much a baby sitter which is possibly the best job ever for a college kid. She also has a boyfriend who she’s had over at the house since there’s nothing better than having an empty house to do what you want. In this case though, her boyfriend only wants to play video games while Brooke is trying to tease him into living out a fantasy. When that doesn’t happen, she notices that Mr Hightower, the man who’s house she’s watching is quite attractive. And takes matters into her own hands.

While you can imagine that this is going to be hot and steamy, you also have to acknowledge that he’s an older and more experienced guy, so there’s a bit of mystery that i’m not going to elaborate on for how things pan out. What i can say though is that our author does a great job of painting the picture in a way that draws you in, and keeps it on the right level of a college girl and her level of experience. So on that note…..

Review & Giveaway: Rodeo Nights by Ava Sterling

Title: Rodeo Nights: A Manage Story
Author:  Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year:  Red Lace Publishing 11/16/18
Length:   20 Pages

Overview

Two cowboys at once? Sounds like a good time to her.

Cora thinks boyfriends are more trouble than they’re worth, blamed on her recent breakup with her college crush. She said she needed space, and immediately after, she packed up her bags to head back home to Oklahoma…at least for a little while.

It turns out to be good timing, as she’s able to catch a rodeo that night. What she couldn’t have predicted was how close she’d become to two cowboys in particular, Luke and Logan, who both look incredibly alike. Friends for years, they both have the same dark hair and dark eyes, among other more…intimate features.

She starts out the night alone, and by the end, she has a hunky cowboy on each arm. The only thing better would be some private time alone so they can show her just how well they can share.

My Thoughts

First off – thank you Ava for getting me access to this book.

Check Ava and the story out here

To my readers – i’m new to Ava Sterling’s catalog and she’s got quite a bit which i’m sure you’ll start to get exposed to more and more from my blog now that she’s been discovered.

What we have here is a sweet novella about a girl who’s decided that being safe and doin the right and expected thing isn’t necessarily her path. After dealing with a boyfriend in college who kept playing the yoyo game, she’s decided that summer break will be her time to live her best life. and in this story – it’s at the hands (and mouths etc.) of a few really sexy rodeo guys!

Cora meets her destiny one night at a local rodeo where she quickly makes eye contact with two very sexy men who are competing, Logan and Luke. When the competition is over, her night begins and it quickly turns into an experience that none of them expected. See, typically when i read menage stories, the two guys are accustomed to what it’s like to share a woman but apparently Logan and Luke have never shared before but it seems to come naturally.

It’s hot and sexy and fun to read. I feel like there’s so much more that we could have gotten into with this story if it were longer, but i think this novella serves the purpose for what a lot of readers like myself want. a palate cleanse and something that’s hits the spot and hard…and just right. Enjoy!

There’s only one way to handle an agent who looks that good.

The evening was supposed to be simple: hold an event, have the media over, celebrate a charity, and have a few martinis in the process. These days, that’s as exciting as things get for Pearla, and she prefers it that way.

Years ago, she gave up being an operative for the agency and hasn’t looked back. She created a company using her savings and life has been treating her well. Well enough to start giving back to the community. But on the night she hosts a party for all her colleagues, her past comes back to haunt her. When she enters her office after taking a break from the crowd, she comes face-to-face with a female agent in a rather tight dress.

Minutes later, it’s a fight for Pearla’s business, her livelihood, and her reputation. They are the only things on her mind . . . that is until a new desire overtakes her, one that will suddenly take precedence over everything else.

Pearla might not be getting back to the party for a long time.

If you enjoy steamy stories about lesbian women, tight dresses, spies, and fight scenes, then you’ll love Solo Mission.
