The following are the synopsis for each of the books that I reviewed from this collection and then my thoughts.

Here is the synopsis for Torn Between Two Brothers by Cathryn Fox.

Lauren Gray loves everything about Adam Wilson, but she can’t deny that while she loves their frantic lovemaking sessions, there are times when she’d like to shift things into slow gear.When she discovers Adam asleep in his bed, she slips between his sheets and attributes his achingly gentle touch to his mellow state. Except come morning she realizes that it wasn’t Adam who was searing her body with slow, sultry lovemaking, it was his brother Garret. Lauren can’t help but think that separately the brothers are amazing, but a combination of the two makes the perfect package. And when this good girl realizes she’s torn between two brothers it has her thinking about breaking all the rules…

The synopsis for His To Keep (DeMarco Investigations #2) by Stephanie Julian.

One phone call is all it takes to throw Nic DeMarco’s carefully controlled world into chaos. The woman he's loved for years has been threatened, and he'll do anything to keep her safe… only, she's not his to protect.

Annie Reed has been in love with her best friend’s brother since she first laid eyes on him, but he's kept her at arm's length. When she takes a job at the DeMarco family private investigation firm, Annie tries to keep her emotions in check. But Nic is too much to ignore.

As Nic and Annie get closer, so does the danger that stalks them...

Here is the synopsis for Arouse (Spiral of Bliss #1) by Nina Lane

"One day I'm going to touch you in a thousand different ways and show you how to touch me," he said. And he did.

Struggling with a tormented past, undergraduate Olivia Winter once led a practical but isolated life. Then she met Professor Dean West, a brilliant scholar of medieval history who melted Liv's inhibitions and taught her the meaning of both love and erotic pleasure. But after three years of a blissful, lusty marriage, Liv and Dean now face a crisis that threatens everything they believe about each other. And when dark secrets and temptations rise to the surface, the fallout might break them apart forever.

Here's the synopsis for The Bequest by Christina Thacher.

Sara leads a double life: CFO by day, sexual submissive at night. When her Master dies suddenly, Sara discovers his will leaves her to his nephew, as though she's a valuable piece of furniture. She's ready to move into a hotel when she gets her first sight of the new owner, gorgeous six-foot-five Cal. Sara has a sudden desire to kneel at his feet. Only problem, he's not a Dom. Cal, a gifted but impoverished composer, barely knew his uncle. So it's a shock to inherit Bruno's fortune ... and his sexual submissive. Under the terms of the will, they'll have to live as roommates before Cal can deed the house to her. Smart, lovely and graceful, Sara drives Cal crazy with desire. Only problem, he's not a Dom. Cal is used to directing an orchestra to create the performance he wants, but he has to visit The Club to understand why his uncle left him The Bequest.
Last but not least, I reviewed  The Witch Who Cried Wolf (Cry Wolf #1) by Sarah Mäkelä awhile ago for a blog tour. You can see the synopsis and my thoughts about it here.

Torn between Two Brothers was really hot and quickly read. I enjoyed it. There was some M/F/M action but there was no touching between the men. This was a really good thing because they were brothers. ;-)

I have to tell you that if you are looking for a deep meaningful plot, you should skip this book. It was all kinds of scorching hotness but not really deep as far as the plot goes.

It was the perfect quickie read. ;-)

In His To Keep there was so much sexual tension that I could almost feel it. Annie was rich and privileged but  she was kind, caring, and loyal to a fault. She had a crush on her bestfriend's brother since she was a teenager. She tried to act on it once and he shot her down.

Now seven years later, she is working in an office where she sees Dominic daily. They get under each other's skin constantly. It is almost like an art form with them, they are so talented at it.

I thought the banter was awesome! It was obvious that they were into each other from the beginning of the book.

Nic, thought he was too old for her and now he thinks that she's too good for him. She thought that he didn't like her. They were both blind to each other's true feelings.

One day, Nic receives a call that threatens Annie and it has him doing things that he probably wouldn't have otherwise. Needless too say that spending time with each other makes it hard (pun intended) to ignore the sexual tension.

There was chemistry, banter, and sexual tension galore in this book. There was also suspense, romance, action, dancing, and some great family interaction.

I liked this one and I now want to read the first book as well as the next book in this series.


This book was super hot and sexy in addition to being filled with angst, drama, friendship, secrets, lust, passion, and love.

I really liked the way Dean talked to Olivia except for when he was angry. I really wanted to like him but I had a hard time with it as the book went on. To me he seemed self centered and pompous.

He caused most of their problems but that was okay. The minute she does something minor, the world is coming to an end and he can't get over it. Grrr men!

All of the issues that I had all concerned him. There was one scene with Kelsey, she was trying to prove a point. I had a hard time accepting his lack of control during the scene.

This book stirred all of my emotions. I was happy, turned on, angry and sad.

Overall, I liked it, issues with the leading man aside.

The Bequest was slow at the beginning and it took me a few tries to read it before it finally started to get heated. When it took off there was lots of heat and erotic scenes. ;-) 

I had a little bit of difficulty with the characters namely Sara. I really would have liked just a tad more of a look into her life with her Master. I just can't grasp what their relationship was about. I just didn't relate to her.

This book grew on me more and more the closer I got to the end though.

I received ecopies of these books in exchange for my honest opinion. This box is well worth the 99 cents. Any one of these books would be well worth that price and instead, you are getting 16 books for the price of one on sale. Can you say no brainer?
