Excerpt & Review: DIRTY SEXY CUFFED by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Dirty Sexy Cuffed by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Date of Publication: June 21, 2016


As a cop, Levi Kincaid is all about discipline and control . . .in the bedroom, and out of it, and he's always been very careful about choosing women who abide by his rules. Hot sex and intense pleasure? No problem. Emotional commitment and forever promises? No way. But he never anticipates falling for a blue eyed angel who makes him want to cuff her to his bed and do dirty, sexy things to her. And that control of his? It doesn't stand a chance against Sarah Robins, the one woman he can't resist . . .

Laura's Review: 

We finally get to really know Officer Levi Kincaid whom we met in the first two Dirty Sexy... books and he was all I would want him to be. Sexy. Protective. Alpha. In control. He really is the perfect hero - especially if you like the strong, quiet types. Sarah is exactly what Levi needed - sweet and soft, but strong enough to hold her own.

I was a little disappointed that it seemed to lack the intensity I expected from what we knew from Levi and the previous books, I wanted it to lead up to something bigger than the somewhat predictable way it ended. With that said, it still was a very enjoyable read with a perfect sexy alpha hero.

Although certainly fits with the rest of this awesome series, it can be read as a standalone with no problem.  

Dirty Sexy Cuffed: 3.5/5 stars

Excerpt :

“What about fun?” he countered easily. “Ever take time for that?”

“It’s been awhile,” she admitted softly. 

He didn’t miss the quick flicker of sadness in her gaze that made him want to reach out and touch her, to use his thumb to smooth away  the crease that had formed between her brows. Resisting the urge took more effort than he’d expected. 

“Then  how  about  you  say  yes  to  a  date  with  me,  and  I’ll  remedy that for  you.  I’m  all  about  having  a  good  time  with  a  pretty  girl,”  he  added with a wink. She opened her mouth to speak, and certain a denial was about to spill out, he  quickly  held  up  a  hand  to  stop  her.

 “Wait.  Don’t  say  anything.”  She pressed  her  lips  back  together,  and  even  though  her  gaze  was  wary,  he continued  on  while he  still  had  a bit  of  leverage. “I  want  you  to really think about  your  answer  this  time,  instead  of  automatically  turning me  down, because one more rejection might just crush me.”

Review: DIRTY SEXY SAINT by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

New York Times bestselling authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde bring you a dirty, sexy, smoking hot SERIES featuring three bad boy brothers bonded by shocking secrets and their damaged past. Sinful, addicting, and unapologetically alpha, these men are every woman’s erotic daydream ... And your ultimate dirty fantasy. 

Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint? 

Clay Kincaid knows he's more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn't do committed relationships. But he does like sex—the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does. Let the sinning begin . . . 


All books in the DIRTY SEXY Series are full-length novels with no cliffhangers!

Laura's Review: 

Although much of this book felt like it had been done before, it still captured my attention and held it to the end. Both Clay and Samantha are more than meets the eye - which is one of the reasons they work so well together.  Clay is perfect at playing the bad boy, when he's much softer inside, while Samantha isn't simply the spoiled rich good girl her parents want her to be. The chemistry was sizzling! I loved the secondary characters and cannot wait to read their stories next! 

DIRTY SEXY SAINT: 3.5/5 stars

Review and Giveaway: Rescued by Phoebe Rose

 Rescued is a New Adult romance with snark, witty banter, and kittens. Can be read as a standalone. It is rated 18+. The review tour runs May 23- June 3. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.  

About the Book:

Thomas is a hot geek, a twenty-three year old entrepreneur with no time for dating...and even less time to deal with the stray kittens who've claimed his patio as their home. Seattle college senior Tessa is a born rescuer, warm and caring--and sick of getting her heart bruised by guys like Thomas. But when he sees her rescue a kitten while wearing kitten heels, he'd do anything to kiss her. And while Tessa vows she’ll never let herself fall for a sexy, ambitious businessman, she fears she's already in over her head.

Laura's Review:

I loved the premise of this story - straight-laced, technically-driven CEO winds up falling for a stray kitten...swoon. And there was more than one laugh-out-loud moment as the kitten (and subsequent kitten rescuer Tessa), basically upends his very neat life.
Tessa was a little ridiculous at times, and more than once I wanted to tell her to grow up, but I think that fits with the New Adult theme perfectly. I expected a little more conflict to bring the story together, but overall it was a very enjoyable New Adult novel.

Rescued: 3.5/5 stars
