    4 STARS Consider this fair warning I m coming after you and I intend to have you underneath me I won t rest until I do So shore up your defenses and work yourself up tightly That way when I seduce you, it will be even sweeterhappy pervy shudder sigh It s hard to believe that this is now the twelfth book in this series Seems like it was just yesterday first discovered and binged myself on this deliciously sexy series I ve been a huge fan, eagerly anticipating each installment 4 STARS Consider this fair warning I m coming after you and I intend to have you underneath me I won t rest until I do So shore up your defenses and work yourself up tightly That way when I seduce you, it will be even sweeterhappy pervy shudder sigh It s hard to believe that this is now the twelfth book in this series Seems like it was just yesterday first discovered and binged myself on this deliciously sexy series I ve been a huge fan, eagerly anticipating each installment And now twelve books into it, it still doesn t disappoint.Heath Powell first caught my attention as the bodyguard in Wicked for You Even as a secondary character, there was something so arresting about him that I simply couldn t help but crave this story After finishing this book, I can tell you that he definitely didn t disappoint.Heath is no stranger to tragedy in his life Having lost his wife to tragic violence, he s never moved on and never made the effort to heal He s been moving through life, one unattached hookup at a time While he fancied himself in love with Mystery, he s lost her to Axel and he s ok with that Now a stunning beauty that wants nothingfrom him than his protection and professional opinion has captivated him beyond reasonif only he can convince her how hot they can burn.Jolie Quinn is a take no prisoners business woman The last thing she wants to do is end up liker her flighty mother, moving on from one failed marriage to the next She doesn t need a man to define her She s focused on one thing only her career So why is the sexy Brit determined to protect her from a threat to her life and business suddenly makes her want to give in, if only just once Heath Powell was like a beacon she couldn t help but home into. I ll admit that I was a bit worried that I wouldn t click with Heath and Jolie s connection at first Having lost his wife so tragically and then knowing of his feelings for Mystery, I was afraid that I d feel like he was settling That couldn t be further from the truth I love the way the author pulled it off Their relationship was certainly on a fast track, but I was invested from start to finish.Jolie was exactly the sort of heroine I gravitate to She was tough, doesn t take any crap from anyone, and has a quick wit with a sharp tongue There s also something so vulnerable about her that seems to come out only when she s around Heath With a whimper, she melted, clinging, in desperate need of an anchor She d worry later about how she would recover from this total breakdown of her defenses Right now, his touch felt once in a lifetime This thing between them engulfed her, consumed her whole She craved even . Holding On Tighter was a sexy, action packed, thrill ride that had me glued to the pages from beginning to finish I loved seeing all my past favorites and a few new faces that I can t want to learnabout I don t think I ll ever get tired of this series ARC courtesy of publisher in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on

    2.5 StarsWhen I got approved for this book I was SO excited First Berkley NEVER approves me for ANYTHINGand probably never will again nowsigh I seriously think someone in their promo department made a mistake and second I LOVE Miz Black and this series Unfortunately, my joy was short lived This book was rough right from the beginning I don t mind OW sex scenes, but I do mind when a heroine sees the hero with the OW and knows they have JUST had sex And when did Miz Black start wit 2.5 StarsWhen I got approved for this book I was SO excited First Berkley NEVER approves me for ANYTHINGand probably never will again nowsigh I seriously think someone in their promo department made a mistake and second I LOVE Miz Black and this series Unfortunately, my joy was short lived This book was rough right from the beginning I don t mind OW sex scenes, but I do mind when a heroine sees the hero with the OW and knows they have JUST had sex And when did Miz Black start with OW sex scenes in her books Anyways, Heath was seriously nasty, he was coming on to the heroine and telling her he was coming for her MINUTES after having his dick stuck in an OW in the hallway of a bar Literally, they were standing RIGHT outside the bar and he was putting the moves on her Now I could have gotten past that had it not been for the fact that he and the heroine are having sex a couple hours after he JUST had sex with the OW At least he showered first, but honestlyNO AND his sex with the OW is constantly brought up for the first 25% of the book Add in the fact he JUST lost his wife 7 years previously AND she is mentioned ad nauseum as is his manwhore past..I mean we could literally not have a sex scene that wasn t compared to either his wife or one of his plethora of hookups AND he was in love with a heroine from a previous book I wanted to call it a day 25% into this thing On top of that, I found the heroine annoying as hell Why can t authors write strong heroines without them coming off like uptight bitches That said I was determined to give this the ol college try So I kept reading and although I got suckedinto the story about the stalker Miz Black knows how to write a great book it just never recovered enough from the beginning to make it a wholly enjoyable read To say I was disappointed is an understatement.Side Not That epilogue hurt my brain Seriously Could we possibly have name dropped anycharacters from previous books What exactly was the point of having Cutter introduced to EVERY couple from the previous books It was like the ending of an episode of The Waltons where everyone is saying GOOD NIGHT to John Boy

    The moment I read the blurb for this book, I knew I was going to like this book It has Holding on Tighter is the twelfth book in Black s Wicked Lovers series Jolie Quinn is a rising fashion designer who is at the brink of unparalleled success with company Betti After a rash of burglaries threatened her business, she enlists the help of security expert Heath Powell.Heath is former MI5 who has no plan on sticking around after the job is done He doesn t want or need the encumbrance of a relatio The moment I read the blurb for this book, I knew I was going to like this book It has Holding on Tighter is the twelfth book in Black s Wicked Lovers series Jolie Quinn is a rising fashion designer who is at the brink of unparalleled success with company Betti After a rash of burglaries threatened her business, she enlists the help of security expert Heath Powell.Heath is former MI5 who has no plan on sticking around after the job is done He doesn t want or need the encumbrance of a relationship He takes what he needs for that night and doesn t hesitate to walk away His philosophy has served him well until he meets Jolie.Despite the obvious spark of attraction between them, Heath and Jolie are wary of starting anything But both have been informed by their pasts Jolie by her mother s revolving door of failed relationships, which made her cynical and distrustful, and Heath by the tragic and violent passing of his wife Their relationship started off rocky, to say the least Jolie is the kind of woman that normally wouldn t attract Heath And Jolie, with her cynicism is a bit of stuck up Both have good reasons for not starting anything But when Jolie s life was threatened Heath steps in daring her to trust.First off, I love Jolie Quinn She s tough, smart, ambitious and ruthless but with a hint of vulnerability hidden underneath It s not impossible to find a heroine in romance is accomplished but I have to admit that CEO heroines aren t as plentiful as its male counterparts So the fact that Jolie is a business woman with lofty dreams is a breath of fresh air.Second, the chemistry between the Heath and Jolie are off the charts hot They both have strong personalities and they both give it as good as they got I like the dynamics between them Heath is a natural dominant although not exactly a Dom in a strict sense but he s a force of nature He likes his women pliant and submissive Jolie no submissive bone in her body and is too independent and self reliant And yet they work.Heath recognizes Jolie s need for independence He revels in it knowing that when she submits, she does it because she trusts him and not because she was a natural at it I really enjoyed that aspect in their relationship They are equals in every way.That said, this book is not without its flaws The ending was a bit of a cheesefest and the epilogue was just confusing I for one love cameos from characters from the previous books in the series But not all of them at the same especially when there has been 11 books to the series already I felt lost and that satisfying feeling that usually comes along with reading an epilogue dissipated.Still, I enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend it

    ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley For me, a 5 star read is one you are still thinking about the next day It s one that you can t put down, or if you do it is only because you have fallen asleep It s one where you feel you have gotten to know the characters in the book, and have come to care about them.I want to know what happens after the epilogue for Jolie and Heath I loved their chemistry and their attraction to one another was amazing I loved that she went after what she wa ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley For me, a 5 star read is one you are still thinking about the next day It s one that you can t put down, or if you do it is only because you have fallen asleep It s one where you feel you have gotten to know the characters in the book, and have come to care about them.I want to know what happens after the epilogue for Jolie and Heath I loved their chemistry and their attraction to one another was amazing I loved that she went after what she wanted I also really liked the fact that they were both fairly sure of who they were and what they wanted.Heath has a one night only rule He doesn t break it And then he meets Jolieand he struggles with the rule And then he breaks it not really a spoiler as it would be tough for them to develop much of a relationship if he held to the rule and the internal dialog is great You get to know him, how he thinks, and what he wants.I loved that Jolie was not only strong, but was able to recognize when others had her best interest at heart I appreciated this a lot Often, strong women are depicted as unable to recognize this and that becomes the issue of the relationship In this, they each respected the other for who they wereand they loved one another for who they were I liked this a lot.And, he is intense And this is great This is not my first book by Shayla Black, but I have not read all of the books in this series That said, you don t need to have read them for you to be able to enjoy this entry into the series.I recommend this book Highly This and other reviews featured on our blog Booked All Night

    I think this installment of the WL books is starting to sound like many other Erotic Romances who are this far into a series as far as how far can the author take it as far as the hero is concerned when it comes to being a shameless man whore who is completely broken and uses sex as an outlet and the heroine who is drawn to him but is constantly stuck in the position where the plug is always chasing the light socket and she just happens to be attacked to the other end so she s dragged along for I think this installment of the WL books is starting to sound like many other Erotic Romances who are this far into a series as far as how far can the author take it as far as the hero is concerned when it comes to being a shameless man whore who is completely broken and uses sex as an outlet and the heroine who is drawn to him but is constantly stuck in the position where the plug is always chasing the light socket and she just happens to be attacked to the other end so she s dragged along for the ride.The fact that manwhore status these days somehow equals a high level of attractiveness reduced my rating to four stars simply because I m getting bored with the concept being inserted into nearly every Erotic novel I read.However this is Shayla Black, there is plenty of fantastic writing and there is a minor concept that plays on the bodyguard theme between Jolie and Heath Readers get plenty of tragedy and backstory and a ton of passion going on which was really great, I just wish I feltheart along with it.Still I thought Holding on Tighter was great and I look forward to reading the next installment in the future Four stars for Holding on Tighter

    I m so excited to start this one I m really crossing my fingers hoping it s going to be really really good.This series is a bit repetitive now The female is in danger She then gets a strong alpha man to protect her and they fall in love Judging the book alone it was good I did like how Jolie was a strong indepedent woman The suspense was really good I never did see it coming whom was trying to kill Jolie and who was the admirer Eventhough I m getting a bit tired of the series I still want I m so excited to start this one I m really crossing my fingers hoping it s going to be really really good.This series is a bit repetitive now The female is in danger She then gets a strong alpha man to protect her and they fall in love Judging the book alone it was good I did like how Jolie was a strong indepedent woman The suspense was really good I never did see it coming whom was trying to kill Jolie and who was the admirer Eventhough I m getting a bit tired of the series I still want to read the next ones I will like to know how Karis and Cutter books end like
