Following the same routine, day in and day out, Charlie Winters was about to give up on getting the break she deserved. Things begin to look up when her brother Nick suggested she to come to New York to work at his landscaping company. Moving from the small town of Cedar Grove to the big Apple was everything Charlie dreamed of, until her brother witnessed a brutal murder, which put his life in danger. Charlie would do everything she could to protect him even if it meant contacting the boy she fell in love with as a teenager.
Leaving the only girl, he had ever loved, the last thing Ryan Hyatt expected was to run into her, especially in Manhattan. Regretting his decision to push her away after he had enlisted in the military, he tried to make it up to her by offering to protect her brother Nick. When tragedy stuck, he soon found that his brother Josh may have been involved. Ryan would stop at nothing to protect the woman he would never stopped loving.
 Walking over to her, I placed my hand on her flushed cheek and lowered my lips to hers. At first, there was a slight hesitation, but once I dipped my tongue inside the warmth of her mouth, her tongue began to dance with mine. I could feel the vibration of small whimpers escape as I continued my play. Charlie’s arms wrapped around my neck, allowing me to kiss her even deeper. Trailing my hands down her back, I found her butt and cupped her firm cheeks. Just the feel of her this close was making my cock jump with excitement. When I lifted her by the waist, her legs enveloped mine as I carried her over to the small couch that was pushed up against the wall.
Even though this wasn’t the way that I imagined our reunion would be, it really didn’t matter because all I knew was that I needed her and my cock longed to be deep inside her. Placing her gently on the couch, I took a moment to absorb her beauty. Her eyes fluttered shut as I traced the outline of her lips before I swept inside her warmth. Her tongue mingled with mine and our exploration of each other began. Charlie’s body told me she was eager for my touch. Slipping my hand underneath her thin t-shirt, I worked it upward until I reached her firm breast. Lowering the cup of her bra, I could feel the warmth and softness of her breast as I fondled the pea-sized bud between my fingers. Bracing my body above hers with the other hand, I managed to find the clasp of her bra. “God, how I loved the person that created front clasps on bras,” I smiled to myself. Just the feel of her skin under my touch left me needing more. All I wanted was to consume the beauty that was hidden beneath the thin material. With one leg planted on the floor and the other bent between her legs, I grasped the hem of her t-shirt and in one movement pushed it upward, freeing her shirt and her bra from her body at the same time. When her luscious breasts came into view, they were as I remembered, only more beautiful.
“God, you’re beautiful,” I whispered as I lowered my lips to the small bud, nuzzling her breast as I savagely began licking and sucking the tip. Charlie’s moans of pleasure sounded and it triggered my cock to become increasingly more uncomfortable locked away in my jeans. I moved back slightly, resting my upper leg on my butt while gliding my hand down her silky skin, stopping purposely at the waistband of her shorts. With one flick of my wrist the button was undone and the zipper began sliding down as I moved my hand beneath her pretty yellow panties. I could feel the soft curls of her pubic hair as I worked my hand further down. At first I was unable to get where I needed with the restriction of her shorts, and then her butt lifted from the couch, allowing me to easily remove her shorts and take her panties with them.
With her body completely displayed before me, she was even more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. Lowering my body, I trailed light kisses down her body to the apex of her sex. Her womanly scent overflowed as I moved to her folds, which were wet with desire. Lapping up her sweet honey, I could feel her hips move, keeping in rhythm to my play. Something intense flared through my body, reacting to her moans of satisfaction as her body gave way. Exposing my own desire for her, I freed my cock from its confines, encased it with latex, and slowly entered her with gentle, even thrusts. I could feel her body light with pleasure as it clenched around me, coaxing me towards my own release. What had taken me so long to find was finally delivered, sending my body in an upward spiral to heaven and back. Never was I going to let her go again.
About the Author

Award winning Author of the Independent Press Award and NYC Big Book Award.
My love for writing began several years ago after an early retirement from a demanding job that I loved, but also hated because it consumed so much of my time. Now, I am able to focus my time on what I love. Writing romance has been a life long dream and to actually say that I am a published author is beyond what I would have ever expected.
Even though some may say I have a little naughtiness in my books, I look at it as an added bonus for my readers. After all what is a romance book without a little spice.
When I am not writing, I enjoy spending time with friends either at home or out on the town. Mostly, I enjoy a relaxing night at home where I can enjoy a glass of wine in the company of a good book.

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

UNEXPECTED is a sexy,hot read. I fell in love with the characters of Ryan and Alina, they are good for each other. Alina has just received news from her boyfriend that he wants a break from their relationship. She cannot get a break from the crappy day that she is having, she is late going in for work and ends up losing her job. She goes back to the apartment that she shares with her friend and takes a shower.  While she is in the shower, someone joins her.  Thinking it is her boyfriend they start to have shower sex, until she finds out it is her roommates boyfriend. They both find out that their boyfriend and girlfriend are having an affair with each other.

So Alina and Ryan go out and get drunk together. Ryan takes her to her place to stay, because she is moving out of her place. Now with her staying with Ryan, it starts to get interesting. The characters and story line is very well-developed, and I recommend this book to everyone. Lilly Avalon is a writer that I will keep my eye on and her books on my to be read pile. I give UNEXPECTED 5/5 STARS.

Book Description

To win a frightened heart, you have to bare your own.


Halle Shifters, Book 3

Any woman would be eager to be Ryan Williams’s mate. Any woman but Glory Walsh. The sexy bear shifter is beautiful, strong and persistent, she’ll give him that. But Glory’s past taught her one simple truth: people leave. She can’t get past the fact he left her once before. Okay, so he had a good reason, and he did come back. Try convincing her emotions.

When Glory finally agrees to a date, Ryan feels like shouting hallelujah. He only left his mate to hunt down the man who’d shot her, but convincing the stubborn woman she has a permanent place at his side is tougher than he thought.

Their date takes a turn for the bizarre when Glory thanks Ryan for the series of romantic gifts—gifts Ryan never sent. It seems her past is coming back to bite her, and before it has a chance to sink its teeth in and tear her out of his life, Ryan will have to bare it all, right down to his soul, to protect the woman he loves. Even from herself.


Warning: This title contains explicit sex, graphic language, a blue-haired heroine, and a hero who isn’t afraid to get all kinds of naked.



BEAR NAKED delivers with the sexy shifters and the humor. Dana Marie Bell always makes me laugh with the humor, and snarky comments. Glory has abandonment issues that stem from when she was younger and her twin sister went missing and then her father kicked her out and left with her  younger sister and brother. She didn’t have anything but the money in her wallet and the clothes she was wearing. She went t live with Cub and her mother. RYAN IS A BEAR SHIFTER, and he has to convince her that he will never leave her and that she is his mate and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. When her lie is threatened by a crazy stalker, Ryan enlists the help of his family to help protect her.

Hen she is bitten by the crazy stalker with a changing bite, Ryan has to give her the mating bite to counter the changing bite. Ryan does not like that her change was forced on her and convince her hat everything will be fine. At tis point we get some very steamy sex scenes that will have you wanting a cold shower. One of my favorite parts of the book that had me rolling on the floor with laughter is when everyone pitched in to clean Ryan’s place before his family arrived in town. Glory told Ryan that she had a crock pot that she wanted him to take to the dumpster. He told her that it could be cleaned. His cousin asked him how long ago was it that they had made the chili? And he replied that it was in college. They proceeded to tell him that he might need a flame thrower to get rid of it. Then he notices that the carpet I actually beige. The whole scene will have you laughing.

If you have not read any of the Halle Shifters novels, I urge you to do so. You will not be disappointed. I give BEAR NAKED 5/5 stars. 

Here are the others in the series.

Demon summoner Kara Gillian bears the scars of Rhyzkahl’s treachery, but she refuses to let them slow her down. She and the demonic lord Mzatal have not rested in their efforts to recover Idris—Mzatal’s summoner protégé who was kidnapped by enemy lords—but now their search has brought them back to Earth.
With the help of FBI agents Ryan Kristoff and Zack Garner, they begin to track down summoners who are working with Rhyzkahl. However, Kara knows Ryan’s true identity, and questions of loyalty threaten to tear apart this group of allies. When Kara intervenes to help a brilliant young computer expert and his bodyguard after an accidental shooting, she quickly learns that Rhyzkahl’s machinations run deeper than she could have ever imagined. The search for Idris takes on a desperate edge as their enemies increase in number, and Kara realizes that an old homicide case may hold the key to their success—or their doom.
With the very fabric of the universe at stake, Kara must rely on her skills, wit, and luck to save her friends and her world, yet ancient vows will have to be broken if she is to have any hope.
But the price of breaking those vows may be her own blood.
Where do I start with this book besides I love it, I love it, I love it. There is so much action, drama with many twists and turns that you don’t know what will happen next. The story line and characters are well-developed.  Kara has to rescue Idris who was kidnapped from the last book.  Kara returns home from the demon realm where she does not work for the police department anymore, Ryan and Zack have pulled some strings with the FBI and have somehow made her a consultant with the FBI and Ryan’s dept. The guys have made themselves at home in her place, and have done some upgrades that the place needed.
Her first night there she is called out to a homicide. While she is there, she happens to trigger a Kara-Trap. A type of virus that Rhyzkahl had put on the body. The spell hit her on the side and not in the chest, thus delaying the effect of the virus. This is his plan to turn her into Rowan. Between trying to keep herself from slipping into the virus and finding Idris, this is one wild ride. When you think you have everything figured out, something else gets thrown into the mix that has you saying “Oh Crap!”.
I love this series, and I love FURY OF THE DEMON. Diana Rowland has a winner with this book, and I give it 5/ 5 stars.
