Mystery/Thriller Romance for Review: Happily Never After by Bess George

After being shot in a brutal attack outside her office, no-nonsense Assistant District Attorney Kelsey Brackston suffers from PTSD, panic attacks that won’t allow her return to work. In need of a fresh start, she heads to California to accept a job from her brother. All seems to be going well until the past comes hunting. Someone wants to kill her—again.

Former SWAT officer Bode Taggert doesn’t want to feel anything for anyone after a split-second decision caused the death of an innocent woman and nearly ruined his life. He’s pulled himself out of the bottle and has one last chance to be a cop again—the only thing he’s ever wanted. When Kelsey asks for his help hunting down a stalker, he resists, knowing the sizzling attraction he feels for her could jeopardize his focus.

Kelsey’s determination to put the past behind her and move on with her life is the one thing that he can’t resist, and despite his intention to remain uninvolved, Bode falls for the sexy lawyer. While he and the police are focused on catching the stalker, however, Kelsey vanishes. With his career—and his heart—on the line, Bode will stop at nothing to find her. But will their newfound faith in each other be enough to save the day? Or will the demons from their pasts destroy them both?

Erotic Romance for Review: Layers by TL Alexander

Alexia Keith, self-proclaimed nerd and potty-mouth, is a beautiful, scotch drinking, complicated mess. In other words, she has issues, and the last thing she needs is her boss, Jaxson Ryan, CEO of Ryan Acquisitions, messing with her issues. She finds him “hard” and even harder to resist, but she must, he’s off limits.

One of New York’s most eligible bachelors, Jaxson Ryan, is the poster boy for the tall, hot, conceited self-proclaimed manwhores. The only thing he wants is Ryan’s Risk Manager, Alexia Keith.

What happens, when a man with a bedpost-notching waiting list, a man who thought he had it all, wants the only woman he can’t have?

The Layer Series is written for adults, by an adult (this is questionable). In contains adult language, and adults doing adult stuff like, hot sex and drinking scotch. It’s written for those who like to laugh and maybe shed a tear or two.

Erotic Romance for Review: Beneath Layers by TL Alexander

Jaxson Ryan was so close to having the woman, the life, he’s always wanted. But that was before…

Alexia—The broken part of me—is me. It’s my blood, my flesh, and my bones. It’s cancer in remission, not to be disturbed. If it is, it will metastasize, it will kill me.Jaxson Ryan—We’d gone beyond, over the hurdle that had pushed us apart so many times before. I was close to touching that place she hides from everyone, even herself, but now…

Will Alexia find her inner Cinderella? Will Jaxson find that elusive glass slipper? Will Alexia come out of her dungeon and put that glass slipper on? Will they find their happily-ever-after? They just might. But…like everything in their complicated crazy-assed lives it won’t be easy.

So, charge up that e-reader, pour yourself drab, or three-fingers of scotch, pull up those granny panties, get comfy, and enjoy the ride.
