The Getaway by Riley Ross

I turned over to face him as he grinned at me. I kissed him softly on his soft lips. I stroked his face and grinned back. Birds were singing in my head as I took in his words. ‘Yes! Finally he said it,’ was all I could hear as my thoughts chiding.

“I love you too. I told your father that earlier today over breakfast. I’ve wanted to tell you this for a while. With you I feel safe, secure, elated and more importantly, I feel loved.”

“You make me happy Sweets.” He whispered before he lightly kissed me. I pulled away from him as he stared at me lustfully. The mood in the room was charged with sexual tension.

“You are wearing too many clothes. I want you Mike and I want you now.” I purred as he stood up quickly and shed himself of his clothing.

He pulled me up off of the bed and yanked my tee shirt up over my head. I backed him against the wall as I lightly kissed him on his mouth. He picked me up by my hips and I wrapped my legs around his waist as he carried me over to the bed and gently laid us down.

Our breathing was frantic with desire as our hands explored our slick and sweaty bodies. It was like time had stood still for us as we made love for the first time with one another. With each touch, it was like our need for each other multiplied by a thousand. Each stroke, nibble, kiss… set my body on fire; I could see the love and adoration in his eyes as he stared into my soul.

“Now Mike, I want you inside me now.” I whispered tenderly against his lips.

“Patience my dear,” he whispered back as he shifted my legs to accommodate his body. I felt his erection pressing against me. He teased me by lightly rubbing the head of his penis against my clit which caused me to orgasm. My body quivered as the gentle explosions rocked me to the core. He wasn’t even inside me yet! I shifted slightly and eased him in. We rolled over to where I was on top of him and I rocked against him gently. I leaned down and kissed him softly as I increased the rocking rhythm. The increased pace brought frequent orgasms for me and Mike was on the verge of coming. I slid off of him

and rolled over on to my back as he moved on top of me. He kissed his way down from my lips to my hips and back up again as he thrust himself deeper. Touches that were frantic and rough were now slow and tender. We climaxed at the same time and he collapsed on top of me. We kissed softly and lay there in the afterglow of making love. He tenderly held me to him and I snuggled closer to him. He pulled my right leg over his and held me to him.


CRAVE – By Ty Langston

“Night that good?” Ellen said as she sped past her, heading towards her own desk.

Harper propped her head up and placed her hand underneath her chin. With a yawn, she replied. “Oh my god...”

Ellen put her stuff down and sprinted to her friend’s desk. “Ok, details, you must spill. Did you like them?”

Harper took a long gulp of her coffee said. “Yes, they were… they are really good.”

Ellen sat on the end of the Harper’s desk with a huge grin on her face. “See, I told you you’d like them.” She told her friend.

Harper’s lips curved into a weak smile as she inhaled the strong aroma of caffeine. The more she sipped, the more she continued to awaken. She tried to find the words for exactly what she thought of Cass as she took another sip of her coffee and began to play with the ends of her headphone buds. “You did. Ummm …Cass is ummm…“ she said before Ellen interrupted.

“Gorgeous, charming… Isn’t that accent enough to make your panties wet?” Ellen asked excitedly.

Harper propped herself up and leaned back in her chair. She snickered. “He’s certainly a charmer. He must have complimented me a half dozen times.” Ellen’s eyes rose with surprise. “He did? He doesn’t normally do that.”

Now Harper was even more confused and apprehensive than she was about last night. “He did with me. I don’t know what it was. Maybe it was the vodka he was drinking, but said that I was a ‘pretty little thing’ ” she said mocking his southern drawl.

“Well I agree with that, you are a pretty a little thing.” Ellen commented.


The Genesis Project by Tigris Eden

Xander watched Genesis Blackmore as she rounded the corner with Nimziri. The other male always made sure he was near Genesis. He and his sister Nimaya were always in her suite, and how did he know this? Simple, he would occasionally wait for her at the adjoining staircase, and every time he tried to get her alone, the cock blocking bastard was there.

Xander took all of Gen’s flawless features in; from the slender, delicate column of her neck, to the full, lush curve of her breasts. She was perfection incarnate, and naiveté gave her the sensual appeal of a female who only had the purest of intentions when it came to garnering affections from a male. Midnight ringlets fell around her face accentuating her elegance. Even her hair was perfect. Thoughts of the dark curtain fanned out on his white silk sheets muddled his brain and sent blood rushing to his cock. She was curvy, fuller and creamier than the rest of the female population on New Earth. Even those in the southern tier of the planet were shapeless compared to her. He’d slept with hundreds of females from far and wide. There were few galaxies his cock hadn’t conquered. But to be faced with her loveliness on a daily basis was sheer torture.

In all the galaxies, hell the Federated Universes, she was unique. Ice blue eyes ringed by pure gold held a male ensnared. Her long, thick lashes cast shadows on her cheeks, giving a new meaning to slumberous eyes. Genesis Blackmore was more than a passing fancy; she was every male’s darkest fantasy come to life. She pulled a male from the deepest pit of his unconscious thoughts and breathed life into his skin. Every male on New Earth and beyond would give everything in his possession to be with a woman like Genesis.

She was a different spice they could attain. The one that would make a male stand out in a crowd and women all gasp in envy. The males of New Earth could sleep outside their species, and Xander had done his share of inter- species bed hopping; but to match with one such as her was unheard of. Match?

Xander’s thoughts were on a path to destruction, and before he had a chance to deny the statement, he realized that yes; he did want to be matched with Genesis Blackmore. Normally a thought like that would have left him nauseous and unsettled in his skin. Something this significant couldn’t go without careful observation. Did he truly want to be matched to her? Totally devoted to her in every way imaginable; tied to one woman with no chance of escape? Hell yes he did! His skin was heated and knew that if he looked in the mirror, his eyes would be flooded with an intense desire. She wasn’t some fling, or even a match of convenience. She’d moved the floor beneath him and he hadn’t had a moment’s hesitation from taking the fall. He watched Gen and Nimziri in a heated conversation and wondered if she would want to be matched to him.

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them." So she did.

Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction, and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica. She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie Collins.

My thoughts:

I read book one and two back to back. I wish I had book three now!

I loved Crave from the first chapter and the second book just kept the love going. I really like Harper and I hope that things work out between her and Cass.

Harper, for those of you haven't read these books yet, is a human. She is worked to the bone at the newspaper. She has been trying to find out what happened to a missing teen. Her boss asks her to cover for a sick coworker and she agrees which is how she meets the band Crave in book one. She is attracted to Cass, the lead Singer of Crave in an unnatural way. He seems to be taken with her as well. When she is leaving the club, something happens which leaves her with lots of questions.    

In book two, they get to know each other better. She finds out what he is and despite being apprehensive, she wants to give him a chance.

In addition to getting answers from Cass, she gets a major break in her story about the missing girl and the bad guy has his sights on her for some reason.

This story has some of everything and I am enthralled. Despite being broken up into a few chapters at a time, it still felt like we got a whole story in each book. The plot had paranormal creatures, mystery, romance, action, and of course a slew of hotties. What PNR is complete without super hot men? ;-) I Crave book three!

The Genesis Project

I am not usually into Sci-Fi type books and this definitely fit into that category. That's not to say that I didn't like it. 

I wanted to give it an honest review so I read it all. I have to admit that by the end of book 1, I was really hooked. 

The main character Genesis, is a product of science. She can't let anyone know her secret. She has been sheltered her whole life until now. Now she has to go to the academy.

By the end of the book 1, there are guys involved and it's starting to get really good! :D

In book 2, Oh my, Xander is stepping up his game. I am confused by him though. He says he wants Gen but then he spends time with Yasira. What is going on?

Then you have Gen's Dad and his strange behavior.

I have so many questions. I just have to read book three!

I have to admit that The Genesis Project surprised me. I thought for sure that I wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong! I thought it was a little boring at first, but after the romance or lust (whatever you want to call it) started between Gen and the boys I couldn't put it down. The way it ended, **Fans face in an attempt to cool myself down** wow! 

The Getaway was the last story in book one. It was super quick. I really found myself getting ready for a cat fight!

I really like Juliet and Mike seems nice enough but his mother and ex girlfriend Brooke are needing a beat down!

In book two, things between Juliet and Mike get really Hot and steamy! His mom still hates her for some reason but Juliet stands up for herself and Mikes's Dad is in her corner! This part of the story was longer than in the first book! :D The ending left me wanting the third book now!!!!!

Okay so separately, they were all interesting in different ways. Crave had the paranormal element, The Genesis Project had more of a sci-fi vibe, and The Getaway had the most steamy scenes so far. No matter what type of story you like, if you like adult writing, you should definitely try these books! They are all good!

I received a copy of both books from RABT in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly can not wait to get my hands on book three. ;-)
