My Review:
I love Kendall Ryan and I love reading her mostly lighthearted stories when I need something to take my mind off the everyday issues. I've read all the previous books in this series so I kind of knew what to expect with this one but it was still a nice surprise. I really liked the characters, especially Mason and the story was light and entertaining with just a pinch of heartbreak and pain.

I am not gonna give a lot of details on the story line as this is a read somewhat on the shorter side :D But what I can say is that there are situations in this book that are simply hilarious :D I mean what are the chances that after having a protected one-night stand, Bren will get pregnant and the one OB-Gyn that gets recommended to her, is the same guy :D Definitely fun.

As for the characters, I loved Mason. He is that rare breed of extremely hot guy who is actually looking for his other half. And in a way, the moment he sees Bren, he knows that she is something special. Isn't that swoon worthy :D As for Bren, I have kind of tough time to decide whether I am more frustrated with her than I like her. Or the opposite. I like a lot of things about her and her love fore animals is one of them. But there are few occasions that I think her behaviour is unreasonable and slightly immature. I do understand her reasoning but to me it feels more that she is immature than actually suffering from a heartbreak.

In the end, I did enjoy this story and I will definitely recommend it if you are looking for something light to read during your holiday. And it doesn't hurt and Mason is a hottie ;)

But make no mistake. I choose. I control.
My life is mine.

Well, damn.

EXCERPT:
The dream is luscious.
I’m curled up on a soft green lawn. A breeze bends the stalks of a row of tulips. They look like they are leaning in to tell me a secret.
Then I see two shoes. Bright polished men’s dress shoes. A perfectly creased cuff lands at precisely the right position. There is no break in the crisply pressed fold. My eyes travel up it, past his knees, to the fly.
There’s a bulge there. He’s gotten aroused looking at me. Heat courses through my body and I skip ahead to his face.
But he’s already bending down, coming for me.
And his lips land on mine.
I fall into the kiss. It’s warm and soft and exactly what I’ve wanted. It tastes faintly of brandy. Smells engulf me. Expensive cologne. A hint of shampoo, something woodsy.
Then the grass is gone. I’m in a black void, spinning. I bring my arms up around the neck of this man in his suit, but I’m surprised to touch skin instead. He’s naked now, the suit peeled away just for me.
I hold on to his strong shoulders. The kiss gets deeper, richer, and the sensation of falling is more intense. His tongue enters my mouth and I open for him greedily. It makes sense, the slide into the emptiness and how he fills me.
Then I really am flying, moving through the air, and a bit of scruffy facial hair scrapes against my cheek.
I’m not in a void. I’m being carried.
But one part of the dream was right.
I am definitely being kissed.
I pull back. Oh my God. It’s Dell.
He looks down at me with a sly smile. “It works on babysitters as well as poisoned princesses,” he says.

Blog Tour: Blue Balls by R.C. Boldt





Title: Blue Balls
Author: RC Boldt 
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 7, 2017 
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser at RBA Designs


BLUE BALLS Truth: A painful condition caused by a prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.



Myth: Only affects males.


SARAH I’m beyond frustrated with the man who’s left me high and very far from dry. Multiple times. But, somehow, even though I’m not interested in a relationship, Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome keeps me coming back for more—one crazy, sexual debacle after the next.

Come hell or high water, the stars will align, and the release will be out of this world.

JACK

I’m captivated with the woman who’s left me sixty-nine shades of blue, and she's only in this for one thing. The first time, I blew it—and not in the good way—but I’m going to ensure we finally see it through. I need to put an end to this “plague” of sexual calamities and prove to Sarah that we can have more.

It's time to grab the universe by the balls and show it who's boss.





RC Boldt is the wife of Mr. Boldt, a retired Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of many students. She currently lives on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing karaoke. If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.


RC loves hearing from her readers at rcboldtbooks@gmail.com. You can also check out her website  or her Facebook page  for the latest updates on upcoming book releases.

A really funny and light read!

First of all, I have to say that the title is sooooo fitting! Blue balls is almost an understatement 😂 Poor Sarah and Jack, the universe really didn't want them to have a complete sexual encounter🙈I fist pumped in victory when it finally happened 😂

Sarah is such a funny woman, and her mind is off the chart hilarious, especially when she's drunk or attracted to someone. So I had an awesome time reading her thoughts about Jack, about his awesome six pack or built forearms :P 

Jack is a really good guy, and I especially liked the sweetest side of his personality. I loved that he was always there for Sarah, or his Sunshine if we want to be precise. 

Their banter was really really really great, funny and lighthearted, but also serious and heartfelt when needed. In a way, we can say that their romance was a slow burn one, and I had a great time following the development of their story.

One thing that left me a little unsure was that neither of them were clear about the real nature of their relationship. Sarah was scared because of her past, so she continuously denied to herself what was really happening between them, but honestly, she behaved a little over the top when they faced the reality of their relationship. In fact, the last few weeks before that episode were full of dates, kisses, touches, and it was clear that it was more that a simple "hanging out" between friends. 

And on the other hand, Jack could have also tried to give her some hints about his thoughts and feelings,  especially because he was aware of her issues, without having to blindsight her with a direct and impromptu declaration of love. 

But in any case, I liked that both of them realised their mistakes quite quickly, and did everything they could (grand gestures included) to get together again.

Finally, meeting Ry and Maggie again was perfect <3 They were an important part of this book, and it was funny to read about them after all they went through.

Excerpt:
“What is in your head right now?”

His eyes heat, darken. “You. Always.” He inches back and looks at me. “You’re mine. Mine to protect.” His voice is low, fierce, and he grips my panties and yanks them away. “Mine to fuck.”

I gasp and grab his shoulders. “Shane.”

His answer is to wrap his arm around my waist, pull me close, his cheek against mine, his fingers pressing into the V of my body. “Wet, just the way I like you,” he says, pressing two fingers inside me. “Wet for me. And too fucking perfect for my sanity sometimes.”

“That doesn’t sound like a compliment,” I pant out, grabbing the lapel to his suit as a sweet ache begins to build in my sex as his thumb strokes my clit.

“And no one else,” he murmurs, nipping my earlobe, “will ever touch you like this.” His fingers caress deeper inside me. “No one,” he adds, “will ever make you say their name like I want you to say mine right now. Say it.”

“Shane,” I whisper, and not because he wants me to, but rather because it’s there on my lips, the way I wish his tongue was on my lips now. “Shane, I—”

Seeming to know what I need, he cups my head and kisses me, long, slow, sensual strokes of his tongue that somehow make every touch of his fingers more intense.

“Come for me,” he murmurs, and this time when he kisses me, I start climbing that wall to release, and I’m there at the top in an instant. I stiffen while his fingers and tongue tease, please, and then I jerk, I’m over it, tumbling in an instant into shudders and shakes. Shane’s lips lift from mine as he breathes with me. His fingers slow as he eases me through the waves until I collapse against his chest.

He tangles his fingers in my hair and drags my mouth back to his. “And no one but me will ever make you come like that again,” he declares, the waves of his emotions beating down any embarrassment I might feel over having had an orgasm on his father’s desk.

“No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”

My Review:
I finished this book just minutes ago and I am still entranced by that ending. It was so powerful and at the same time it leaves you with so many questions and unknowns that the need to have the next book in  your hands is nearly unbearable. Similarly to the previous two books in the series, this is a fast paced romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is intriguing and so captivating that you would have difficulties stopping for a break.

Emily and Shane's story is one of the best ones I've read in a long time. As I read quite a lot, it is very difficult to find a romantic suspense that can surprise me and reveal secrets and story twists that I won't expect. Well, the Dirty Money series and Bad Deeds in specific, is one of this rare occasions. The masterfully woven story and incredible characters, create a world that pulls you in from the very start and leaves you breathless and so absorbed by it that you can easily loose track of time. 

Emily and Shane's love is constantly tested by the demons carried by both of them. But time and time again, they prove that together they are stronger and can overcome everything thrown their way. Until a betrayal none of them sees coming can cost them their lives. The emotions in that moment are so raw and potent that I could feel them as if I was witnessing the scene in real life. You can feel the fear, the pain, the rage so strongly as if you are the one staring your nightmare in the eyes. And that's where the story leaves you. Craving to find out what will happen next. And I can honestly say that the next couple of months until the conclusion of the series comes out, will be pure torture. Because Shane and Emily's story is so addictive that you will need a regular fix to keep you sane :D

As I said before, this is one of the best books I'v read recently. And I hotly recommend it to every romance suspense lover out there. Just keep in mind that this is not a standalone and you have to start from the first book in the series, Hard Rules. I can guarantee you won't regret it though ;)

Yet I’m willing to try.

He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us.
