Madison has inherited her sister’s lingerie shop, Naughty Bits. But Naughty Bits is a bit more than just a lingerie shop. Madison has always needed to be in control, yet she recognizes that she’s drawn to being a submissive. She recognizes it, but has been running from it for a while now. When she meets Logan, who runs the hardware store next to Naughty Bits, and discovers that he’s a Dom, she’s not sure how long she’ll be able to keep running.
 
The relationship that is starting to form between Logan and Madison promises to be so hot, so steamy, so emotional, so….just so much. Madison is so conflicted and Logan is so confident. It seems like the perfect pairing for a great series. I’ve read some of Joey W. Hill’s BDSM romances before and I can’t wait to see what she does with Logan and Madison.
 
I couldn’t stop turning pages with this one and Joey W. Hill has me tapping my toes, not-so-patiently awaiting the release of part two.
 
One minor note: there is no sexual interaction between Logan and Madison in this book. I can only imagine that the anticipation will make it all the better when it finally happens. Because if it can be steamy without the sex, I can only imagine…
 
How about you? What series are you anxiously waiting for the next book to be released?

Eve Dallas’ latest case involves dating services, ritualistic murders and Santa Claus. Yes, I said Santa Claus. The city’s latest killer dresses as Santa to gain entrance to his victims’ homes. When he gets into their homes, he rapes, sodomizes, murders, cleans, does their make-up and poses them. He also leaves a piece of jewelry in the “12 Days of Christmas theme with the victims.

Eve and her team, Roark, Feeney, Peabody and McNabb find out that all the victims used a dating servicce called Personally Yours. As they try to track down this killer, Eve has to deal with Christmas shopping, a horrible fight with not only Roark but also with Peabody. As the clock winds down, the intensity of the case takes a toll on Eve both mentally and physically.

This was my favorite of the series so far. I loved everything about it. The bantering and pulse pounding suspense were fantastic. This series still manages to not only hold my interest but keep me fully engaged. A lot of emotions took place in this book. Eve had to face a lot of things that she wasn’t necessarily ready for. Now, me, I’m ready for the next book.

Eve and Roark were at it again. They were tracking a sadistic killer that had ties to Roark in his youth. The bad guy was a total whack job complete with a God complex. Or maybe he thought he was a messenger of God. Either way, he was a major creeper. Eve had her hands full skirting the lines of legality in this one. She had to trust McNabb who was covering for Feeney when he was on vacation. Trying herself to cover Somerset to protect Roark. Uncovering more of Roark’s checkered past and attempts on her life.

I really enjoyed this story because it was fast paced and they even went to Ireland. I enjoyed all the accents when they were in Roark’s homeland. I like that maybe in the future there will be some sort of a truce between Eve and Somerset.

 As usual, I enjoyed the on going love story of Eve and Roark, Peabody and the rest of the gang. Still a good series and I will continue on after a short break.
