Lora Leigh- Sheila's Passion was a quick passionate and exotic read. If you've read Lora's stuff before you won't be disappointed. I bet if she wrote erotic stories about rocks you would have to get a fan to cool yourself off. Lora has a way of writing and descriptions that clearly leave their mark on you as you read the story. This story is about Sheila and how she has found the man she loves although because her father is a high ranking military official she has been burned before being in a relationship with a man who only needed her to get to where her father could promote him, so she is leery to believe that anyone would want her solely. Nick and Sheila burn up the sheets through the entire story but the mad man out there watching thinks Nick is someone else in hiding and uses Sheila to try and shake him out of hiding, although he's got the wrong man. Great story hope theres more to come from this one.
Cheyenne McCray -Deadly Dance is another quick read that covers the details of Keri a woman who was injured and terrified by an old boyfriend who she helps put in jail, and Detective Adam Boyd who's partner who was killed by the same man. The detective finds out that Carter has gotten out of jail on a technicality after only 7 years in prison and stops a hit from going down on Keri. The story is sweet and you can feel the emotions between Keri and Adam, and the suspense is good as well. Always love Cheyenne McCray's stories and you will probably like this one too.
Red Garnier - Caught is the first story I've read of Red's, and was impressed with the angst and sensuality of the story between Meg and Cody. Meg has loved Cody since she was a kid and Cody and his twin brother Ivan both wanted Meg. Ivan however is the darker of the twin brothers and tells Cody if he takes something he loves then he will take something that Cody loves and that ends up being his parents who Ivan kills when they are 16 years old. Through the years Cody grows up to be a homicide detective and puts his brother in jail as a juvenile but he breaks out pretending to be Cody and goes after Meg. Cody tells himself he can't have Meg because he has a killer's blood running through his veins but he finally lets down his guard to take Meg to bed 7 years later as well as taking the virginity she saved for him alone. I won't spoil the ending but they all lived HEA.
Leigh's story was really bad--I give it a 2.5. She has really been disappointing in the last year or so, becoming a writing mill. I never thought I'd say this but the sex scenes were excessive, and boring. At one point I thought I'd read the same sentence again, I went back a page and it was the exact same sentence except for one word. She describes a sex scene at length and then describes it again with a few changes. And I don't feel any real emotion in the characters or the scenes. Yawn. The character, Sheila, is portrayed as a bit petulant and immature. The intro about the Italian familia looking for a guy they think might be Casey is not well integrated. Then a weird twist at the end that is not explained well at all, very disjointed.
McCray's story was pretty good, 3.5 rating. Short stories are hard to deliver in a believable manner when the characters fall in love in such a short time period. So I thought it odd that McCray spent so many words on Keri's mother and father who didn't really have a role in the story beyond Keri helping them out a lot.
Garnier's story I give a 3.5. Interesting plot with Cody's evil twin brother, Ivan, murdering their parents in retaliation for Cody going out with Megan. Cody finds himself flawed and he's haunted by the murder, his love for Megan and his need to keep her safe, which he believe is to stay away from her. She mistakes Ivan for Cody at one point begging Ivan to kiss her. She and Cody finally sleep together, and she's sure she'll always know the difference between them now. I won't ruin the ending but she doesn't know the difference and does something really hard to believe.
SHEILA'S PASSION by Lora Leigh: Sheila Rutledge has been in a sexual relationship with Nick Casey for months. Both Sheila and Casey have been hurt in the past and thus they both don't want to risk their heart. There is a continuing story about a watcher wanting revenge and seeking out the men who work in the intelligence gathering bar to find the watcher's target. I liked the first novella in this series COOPER'S FALL but I found this one a disappointment. The romance was sexy but dependent upon the two characters not talking to one another. Rating: 2.5 stars.
DEADLY DANCE by Cheyanne McCray: Detective Adam Boyd has come to warn Keri Holliday that the man they put away in jail has been released and might seek revenge against Keri. Keri and Adam engage in a sometimes really sweet romance while trying to keep Keri safe. I thought this story started out well, but the actual relationship between Keri and Adam didn't seem to develop and obtain any depth. I didn't feel any deep connection between the characters. Rating: 2.5 stars.
CAUGHT by Red Carnier: Cody Nordstrom and Megan Banks knew each other as teenagers and were just starting a romance when they came to Cody's home to discover that Cody's twin brother had murdered their parents. The murder tore the two of them apart. Thirteen years later, Cody is a homicide detective who is still haunted by his twin's actions. He is afraid that the monster inside his brother is in him as well. Megan has loved Cody for years and is determined to move their relationship to a new level. At the same time, the past comes back to haunt them both. The setup for this story was amazing: a angst filled story with a tortured hero. The ultimate resolution didn't work as well for me as the beginning. I thought the story could have been better explored in a longer novel because the resolution was too abrupt and didn't deliver on the promise of the setup. Rating: 3.5 stars.
