*Re-Release Blitz* Seeing White (Book One) By Charlotte E Hart



*Re-Release Blitz*
Seeing White (Book One)
By Charlotte E Hart

Alexander White, the wealthy businessman with
looks to die for. Just like the other colors you’d think…but no.

He came from a very different place and made some
of his money a very different way.

And he keeps it well hidden because the truth
would destroy everything he has. All that he’s worked for would be gone in an
instant if they ever found out what he’s capable of, or what he really did and
who he did it for. So he keeps people far away with metaphorical games and
walls to deceive and confuse.

He doesn’t do relationships, he doesn’t do
emotions and he certainly doesn’t do love…whatever the hell that might be.

He does money. Making it, manipulating it and
spending it whist he plays with women who know what they’re signing up for when
they walk in the room.

Three people shaped who he is today. One damaged
him beyond repair, another taught him to control the rage, and a decent one
helps him to consider his options more appropriately than his own head might

But be under no illusions ladies, Mr. White has
not been a nice man, and he will probably never be a decent man but as long as
he keeps up his image, and nothing gets through his barriers, no one will ever
see the truth.


Life’s good for Elizabeth Scott, successful
business, happy kitchen and a great sister who deals with all the expensive
people so she doesn’t have to. She just cooks, bakes and smiles her way through
each day… well most of the time anyway, that is when her great sister isn’t
pushing her to, “get out there a bit more,” or “sort her shit out.”

Then the biggest contract of their lives comes
up… And the ever  useless London tube,
with her sister in it, catastrophically breaks down. Unfortunately that means
only one thing, she’ll have to deal with some of that wealth herself and that
means the devastating Mr. Alexander White in all his glory.

Life suddenly couldn’t get worse, regardless of
his unfairly gorgeous backside.

She has no idea what the hell she’s doing.

He had been entirely happy to just be with her and learn all
about her body, he’d relished every second of searching for what she enjoyed
and where she needed him to be. Her nuances and differences were a fucking
challenge to be reveled in and worshiped. He’d spent long periods of time
simply exploring and licking his way around her and Christ she had tasted so
good too, so sweet, like nectar sent from the gods as his prize. She’d melted
when he’d swirled his tongue over her and had made her come for the third time,
so responsive and hungry for more as each moan of desire had pushed him further
towards his own explosion. When she’d pushed him onto his back and indicated
that she wanted to ride him he’d let her. That was interesting; he hadn’t
wanted that for a very long time, he normally didn’t want anything above him
yet with her he’d allowed it, wanting her to stay on top so he could watch.
He’d been mesmerized as she’d taken his cock inside her and lowered down onto
him moaning with unadulterated pleasure and gasping as his size stretched her
wide. He’d just laid back and enjoyed the ride as they say; he couldn’t keep
his hands still for long though and had grabbed her hips and angled her
perfectly to increase the pressure sending her over the edge again, he’d been
so enthralled in just watching her writhing about on him with her beautiful
hair cascading down her spine that he’d exploded viciously inside her whilst
those soft, soul tearing brown eyes pleaded with him for more, something

Ruin by CD Reiss

review by crystalRuin is the second book in CD Reiss’ Songs of Corruption Series.  You should read Spin first.

That being said, let’s get down to the nitty gritty with this review.  I’ll keep it as PG as I can here, but I effin loved this book!  I loved the first one too.  Spin was my first CD Reiss book, and since I loved it so much, I read her Songs of Submission series about Jonathan and Monica.  I was completely hooked and was anxiously awaiting the release of Ruin – which gets us to where we are.

Antonio Spinelli and Theresa Drazen are two of my favorite characters.  The Capo and Contessa, as they affectionately refer to each other, are star-crossed lovers in a very screwed up situation.  Theresa’s high social status is continually a factor for their relationship, as is Antonio’s position as a mafia capo.  They are two people who, by all rights, shouldn’t be in each other’s world, but they fall in love anyway.  That alone should be enough to make most people want to read it.  The fact that the author writes kick-ass books is another reason.  A third reason, and perhaps the most important one, is the fact that Theresa and Antonio have a chemistry that is beyond normal (in the best possible way).  They are explosive together and I’ve never read two characters quite like them before.

I’ll try to keep any spoilers to a minimum.  We pick up shortly after where Spin left off and now Theresa is hiding out from the backlash surrounding some major mafia business gone wrong.  Antonio is just trying to keep her safe from his life and herself, but instead, he’s smothering her.  At first, it seems they have a love/hate relationship, but, to me, it’s deeper than that.  Nothing with these two is ever that cut and dry or simple.  Part of Theresa’s greatness is the fact that she’s openly honest about the hard time she’s having coping with being herself and being tied to her Capo.  Likewise, one of the best characteristics of Antonio is the fact that he knows he should let her go, but he just can’t do it.  His selfishness and her stupidity of the situation intertwine them much more tightly than before and I just love it!

This book is written with lots of raw intensity, and I really believe that is what draws me into this fabulous world that CD Reiss has created.  When you start reading it, you really get sucked in and can feel the emotions coming off the characters.  And the emotions aren’t always pretty and neatly packaged.  Neither is life.  These characters are real.  There isn’t an easy happy ever after.  There’s a lot of shit going on in the meantime.  There are lots of feelings that add to the already tumultuous ride that Theresa and Antonio are on.

And that ending…that ending.  My blood pressure was high for a while – I’ll tell you that much.  I was very worried that things were going to go completely wrong and that I was going to have words with a certain author about what the hell she was thinking.  The biggest thing I’ll give away is to just keep reading…it’s not that bad!

Once again, I think she’s knocked it out of the park with this book and these characters.  I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series.  I’m a huge fan of hers and I think many of our readers would love her books – so check them out if you haven’t already!

Forbidden Forever / Forbidden No More



Forbidden Forever and Forbidden No More by Christy Dilg

review by crystal

Today is release day for Forbidden No More, the second book by Christy Dilg about Dr. Chance Turner and Laney Collins…so from Orchard Book Club – Happy Release Day!

Now, I’m going to give you my review for both books since I read them back to back.  I met Christy Dilg in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the Tennessee Valley Author Event back in July.  I did my research before I went and had a list of authors that I wanted to meet and books I wanted to leave with.  Christy was at the top of my list.  Her book Forbidden Forever sounded like something that I would really enjoy.  I stopped by her table to meet her, and her being an awesome author aside, she’s an amazingly sweet person!  I truly enjoyed getting to meet with her that very hot and humid Saturday.

Skipping ahead, I answered a request she posted on Facebook asking for people interested in beta-reading her second book Forbidden No More.  I jumped all over it.  Before I started the second book, I wanted to read Forbidden Forever so I knew what was going on.  I dug right in and was not disappointed.  The book follows Laney Collins, a woman who is truly beautiful inside and out, as her marriage falls apart.  Laney takes a job working for Dr. Chance Turner and a relationship blossoms between the two of them.  This was not some torrid affair between the two of them, but, rather, a very beautiful relationship that evolved from two bad situations.  Chance sees in Laney what she cannot see in herself due to the mental (and subsequent physical) abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.  Anyone who enjoys books about a story deeper than just the physical would enjoy Forbidden Forever because it is very heartfelt and emotional.  It has steamy parts too, but the underlying story is one of courage, strength, and the power of love.

After finishing Forbidden Forever, I dove right into Forbidden No More.  I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted so much to see what was going to happen with the characters.  That’s the way they are written, they resonate with you and you carry them with you as you read the books.  They aren’t forgettable as I find a lot of characters are recently.  I really wanted Chance and Laney to have a happy ever after because they both deserved it.  The second book brings about surprises for the entire family, including Laney’s children with her ex-husband.  Christy really wrote a beautiful story about a blended family and how having a good step-parent can help to shape a child’s life.  Again, this book definitely had the more adult parts to satiate the erotica loving reader, but I still feel like the books carried a much deeper meaning…at least they did to me.

I am so thankful that Christy let me beta-read Forbidden No More for her.  I enjoyed the experience and both books are definitely worth reading.  I highly recommend them!

Kink by Nikki Sex Book Blitz

Kink Book Blitz



Book Title: Kink
Author: Nikki Sex
Genre: Erotica
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

book blurb

Emily Malone snuck into my life, slipped under my skin, and right into my heart. Little did I know that danger and death tagged along with her, following in her innocent wake.

I’m always in control – but not with her. Emily makes me doubt myself, because she’s so important to me. Emily knows nothing of the lifestyle. I know she’s submissive, but I must take it slow.

Gradually, step-by-step, I’ll teach her to enjoy my particular brand of kink, my unique darker needs. She’ll learn to love what I love. What I need.

That is if both of us live long enough to complete her training.



meet the author


Nikki Sex writes sexy contemporary romance, often involving a bit of kink. She’s a sucker for Happy Ever After endings, so no matter how dark my stories get, fear not! It always all works out in the end.




I can’t move. I’m dying.

For an instant, I imagine someone finding my body. Will birds gather to peck at me? Is that how I’ll be discovered? By someone attracted by unusual animal activity?

For a moment I consider who might find me. Will it be someone I know? I can almost hear them yell, “Holy shit, that’s Paul Jarman!”

An excruciating spasm assaults me. My lungs seize. My body convulses. Internally, every part of me screams. My mouth falls open – but instead of shrieking, only a soft hiss issues from my throat, heralding my agony and despair.

The sound is pathetic. Is that tiny utterance the last noise I’m capable of making before I die?

There’s no one nearby to hear me, even if I’d been able to scream.

I’ve never been so alone.

I’ve also never felt such unbearable pain. Time stops. There’s only this one eternal moment, the agony of now.

I’m twenty-six years old. I’m too young to die. I’ve been an idiot most of my life. I’ve been an asshole… but just recently, I’ve learned so much. Everything has been coming together. If I live, I really think that I can make something of myself.

But I’m not going to live.

Inexorable pressure, like the invisible hand of some cruel giant, pushes down hard on my chest. No air! Each breath I take becomes more and more difficult. Wow. Is this what it feels like to be starved for oxygen? As a Dom I like breath play. It’s kind of karmic to be on the other side.

But I sure as fuck don’t get an erotic thrill from this.

I’m dizzy. My vision tunnels. The physical pain fades, but sadness stabs at me. This agony of heart and soul is intense. It’s worse than any bodily torment.

I have so many regrets.

My biggest sorrow comes from the thought of losing Emily. Not only losing her, but leaving her. Not being there for her. My one pure and perfect joy has come from Emily. I’m so grateful that I’ve had her in my life. She’s taught me so much.

If only we had more time together.

My sweet girl will be distraught. I can’t imagine how she will deal with my death. With all that I’m enduring, the thought of her pain is more than I can take. I forcefully shove the reflection away. I wish I could protect her from this.

Blood continues to pump from me. I feel its warmth flowing onto my chest. I’m floating in a mental haze. As I near death, I enter a strangely comfortable state of philosophical delirium.

Is it better to kill…or to be killed?

What if you took another person’s life by accident… say perhaps, through a moment of incompetent or distracted driving? That would create a burden of guilt that you’d have to live with for the rest of your life. It might even drive a person to suicide.

Premeditated murder assumes that one’s conscience is reconciled to committing such a sin. Once reaching that point, guilt and regret wouldn’t be an issue.

What about an impulsive murder of passion? Can one honestly justify killing another by pleading temporary insanity? Would a temporary loss of control lessen the burden of guilt afterwards? Even if someone still died by your hands?

But I’m not crazy. My actions didn’t result from temporary insanity. For me, it was pure animal instinct.
I killed on purpose.

As my life drains away, I smile because I know that if I had the chance, I’d do it again. Committing murder is one thing that I don’t regret.

review by rachel

A Dominant Man 
Lena Black
Hmmmm …. This was a difficult book for me to review. I am drawn to this genre but I found this book just way to close to 50 shades, and yes I know there are a lot of spin offs but this book lacked anything different.
Gabrielle’s relationship towards Hunt was like pulling petals off a daisy…… She loves him… She loves him not…. She loves him ….she loves him not! you get what I mean!.  She was so over dramatic with situations and I  found her very frustrating.
However I did like that Gabrielle wasn’t just an innocent girl but had a dark past and her own wealth.
 Hunt was portrayed as a believable dominant man, however he had nothing that would make him stand out.
Finally towards the end of the book I started to see some improvement… then Bam!… the cliffhanger! 
The cover and a blurb was pulling and I really wanted to enjoy this book, but it was just ok, it didn’t really hold my attention.
It had a few errors and what I thought to be unnecessary and boring dialogue.

Lie to Me by Bethany Bazile Release Day

Lie to Me Release DAte



Book Title: Lie to Me
Author: Bethany Bazile
Genre: Erotic Romance (Novella)
Release Date: July 27, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

book blurb

It was all too much. There was no way I could keep piling up these lies without it all tumbling down.
I was desperate to keep her, even if it meant I had to lie to her. But when everything unravels, the only thing that can save us is the truth in our love.

lie to me teaser3



meet the author

Bethany Bazile reads, writes, and lives in the Northeast with her husband and two amazing kids. Her passion for writing was born from a love affair between books and music. She loves books that draw her in and won’t release her until she’s inhaled every word, panting with excitement. Then she realizes the sun came up, but the loss of sleep was so worth it. When she isn’t reading, she’s conjuring up steamy love scenes and hot romance stories to share with fellow romance lovers. She can’t function without her cup of coffee and operates on a vampire-like time-frame.




Turnabout is Fair Play


My hands were behind my back, my legs spread, Xander’s right hand over my mouth and his other in between my legs. I was sitting on his lap, my back to his chest, his hard cock nestled in the ridge of my ass. Occasionally, he’d bite my neck as his heavy breaths caressed my ear.

This was supposed to be a session. Our sessions had gotten more emotional over the weeks, but before he’d pour out his emotions, he needed to drain the physical need that always clawed at us.

I whimpered against his hand.

“Shut up or Angela will hear you. Do you want that?” His tone was blunt, his voice raspy at my ear.

I shook my head, but how was I supposed to keep quiet when his fingers were driving into me, slithering along my clit, then gliding back into my wet pussy. The man was sinfully amazing. He was fully clothed but had managed to get me to strip down to my garters and heels, on the verge of begging him to fuck me.

He’d spread my legs as far as I could possibly get them. He was taunting me. Ever since the day I’d sucked him off in my office and made him lose control, he’d waited for this moment. He had a leash on me. It wasn’t your typical kind either. His leash came in the form of magic fingers and a glorious cock that compelled me to follow his orders to a tee. His finger manipulations became faster, pushing against my sweet spot, then rubbing against my clit. It was just enough pleasure to keep me on the edge, and he’d kept me there for almost half an hour.

If he wasn’t careful, my next appointment would walk in and he’d still be working me with his phenomenal digits. “Pleeease…” I gasped through the hand he held over my mouth.

“Do you understand how this works?” His voice was unreasonably calm while I was riding in limbo, tasting little morsels of pleasure, but not allowed to indulge on the feast I was promised. I nodded. Anything to get him to release my orgasm from his ruthless grasp.

“My pussy. I decide when you come,” he informed me.

“Your dick is mine—I should… get to decide.” He withdrew his fingers and smacked my pussy for my comeback answer.

Holy fuck!

The sting buzzed against my clit. I swear I almost came from that tap. One more and I was sure to go over. Maybe I can goad him into repeating it.

“That’s not how it works. I decide when we both come,” he growled.

“When do I get to decide?” I countered.

He plunged two fingers deep into my pussy and I quivered. “When I tell you to ride my dick and make me come. Now you have sixty seconds to come, and don’t disappoint me.”

Lussuria and L’amore


Lussuria and L’amore by S.J. Molloy
Reviewed by Crystal

I found this first book in S.J. Molloy’s Luminara Series to be all over the place…in the best possible way. Lexi Robertson lives a life that she has carefully constructed into neat little files. She painstakingly obsesses about nearly every aspect of her life and tries to compartmentalize everything. In order to let loose just a little bit, she decides to go on a vacation to Tuscany with her best friend. In pops Lucca Caruso and all of his sexy glory. And, boy oh boy, does he just ooze sex appeal. Lexi is seemingly a person who doesn’t want to feel things anymore in her life, but Lucca has changed that. He forces her to live again through what first starts as lust but quickly turns into love. Lucca is trying his best to help Lexi find the light at the end of the tunnel so she can just learn to be herself.

The second book picked up right where the first left off which I appreciate. I like that in a series, where the story just continues. This book centers mainly on Lexi and Lucca’s relationship. It has definite hot, erotic love scenes that will have any romance lover swooning. But there’s also an inherent sweetness to Lucca as he tries to teach Lexi how to love. However, a monster from Lexi’s past emerges on their happy life and Lucca is forced to protect his love at all costs. While Michael Parks is doing his best to destroy Lexi, Lucca has embarked on his own journey to cherish her and bring her the love she so deserves.

Both of these books were very well written and I would definitely recommend them to readers. Lucca has earned a spot in my book boyfriends!

Rules of Harte


Rules of Harte by Brooke Harris
Reviewed by Crystal

After reading the blurb for this book, I thought it would be something I would really enjoy. After reading it, I’m afraid I’m left a little bumfuzzled (that’s a reviewing word, right??!!).

The story follows Eva Andrews after she has moved to Dublin to start her life afresh. There she meets Julian Harte, who serves as an escort for her to a masquerade party hosted by her office. The “game” played at this office gave me a few “what the heck” moments. At times, most of the characters, especially Eva, were extremely naïve and gullible. And as much as I wanted to love her as the romantic heroine in the story, it was difficult at times because she was so easily influenced. The staff was enough to keep me on edge with how they conducted themselves sometimes around the game.

That being said, the love scenes were very well written. I think Ms. Harris really captured some great moments in some of them and it was easy to kinda forget all of the other turmoil going around when the story shifted to those scenes.

I want to love Eva and Julian, I really do. There were definite moments of sheer creativity in the storyline. However, there were also a few times that things got a little predictable and unbelievable. An example of this to me, and I will totally admit that I am a nit-picky reader, was how easily and quickly adapted to European slang Eva became. But, like I said, I tend to be incredibly nit-picky and some people are not.

Overall, I think this book has great promise. If I can overlook my tendencies to pick, I think the next book(s) in the series will continue to spell things out and set a tone. I think anyone who enjoys a little big of a mysterious romance would enjoy this one and should give it a try.

Night Owl


Night Owl by M. Pierce
Reviewed by Crystal

I’ll be perfectly honest with you because that’s what you expect from us here at Orchard.  This is the first book I’ve been able to pick up since reading Bang by E.K. Blair.  After that helluva cliffhanger, I just haven’t been able to find a book that screamed “Read Me”.  Until I found this one that is.

Hanna and Matt meet online.  But not on a dating site.  They meet on a collaborative writing site where they are both working together on a story.   The rules are simple, no specifics.  No last name, no locations.  But then things change and Matt and Hannah end up in a position to find out exactly how much they mean to each other.

I really had a hard time putting this book down.  I read most of it in one day.  Towards the end of the book I fell in love with Matt all over again.  At first you get his strong, arrogant side, but then after (read it to know after “what”) you get a scared and broken Matt that just needs to be loved.  Throughout the entire book, Hannah is definitely a trooper.  She’s open to trying things with Matt and it was definitely hot!

I think this book really flowed well and there were enough twists to keep me engaged.  There were times I wanted to laugh with them, cry with them, and then smack them both.  The emotions they share make this book very read-worthy!  I can’t wait for the next one!  Great book!

Songs of Submission

Songs of Submission

Songs of Submission series by CD Reiss
Reviewed by Crystal

Yet another great series that I’ve read lately.  I was turned onto this author after I read her book Spin (review for that coming shortly).  Normally, I’m not a big fan of novella books unless I can wait until they are all out.  I’m a tad impatient.  I had no problems with this series since I was able to purchase the first three and the second three in a set – there are 7 total novellas.

I first met Monica in Spin and this series takes us through the relationship between Monica and Jonathan.  Monica is a very talented singer who is focusing on getting her career off the ground.  Jonathan is a businessman who was also born into money.  After they meet and the sparks fly, we are tossed into a whirlwind relationship full of emotion, passion, and steamy sex.  Jonathan is very certain about what type of man he is and Monica gets to learn about herself during their bouts of passion and pleasure.

Each novella offers a flawless continuation of the story.  When I realized how long the series was I thought there was no way that I could stay engaged that long unless the story was that good – well, trust me, it was.  I loved the raw emotions from Monica throughout the series.  She struggles to find her place with Jonathan all the while trying to not lose herself and her dreams of a singing career.  Then when a major event happens, the story seemed to tilt on its axis and I was left thinking “oh my God, no!!!”

I highly, highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a book/series of books that is very well written with an in depth story that is not lacking on great chemistry and wild, hot, passionate sex!  I know that I can’t wait to read more by CD Reiss!
