    Sinfully sexy. April Angel doesn't seem to be running out of sin

    Sinfully sexy. April Angel doesn't seem to be running out of sinfully wicked male heroes that make your heart pound and other parts throb with need, or female heroines you want nothing more than to trade places with. Wicked Valentine is nothing short of pure carnal ecstasy.

    We were briefly introduced to Sabrina as Alexandra's feisty cousin in Mr. Buff. Sabrina has been harboring a serious lust-fueled crush on her boss, Maxwell Stone for about a year. So far she's done a really good job of keeping her raging desire for him in check, not just because his company has a strict no fraternization policy, but he's also her boss, and everyone knows that sleeping with the boss is never a good idea. While on a colleague bonding retreat in the woods, a very inebriated Sabrina can't resist the heated looks or the feel of a mere touch from Max. Not knowing that Max had been suffering the same unfulfilled desires of look but don't touch, he's not willing to let her hide any longer. But convincing her to give them a chance may require him to pull out all the stops and implement an unconventional plan that would blow all first dates right out of the water. The only thing more distracting than Max's tongue may be a stalker leaving threatening messages.

    Max is a successful CEO, incredibly handsome, has the stamina of an Olympic athlete, and he's a closet geek which just made him even more appealing. His idea of luring Sabrina to the Wicked Valentine's Day Ball where he would make all her fantasies a reality was ballsy. Three different rooms, three different scenarios, and each one of them will have you dripping with lust. Pretty much like Sabrina.

    What I loved about this pairing was that even though Sabrina was scared of commitment, she didn't put up a tug of war with her emotions over Max. Once he began creeping into her heart, she let him in. As for Max, I loved both his confidence as well as his few moments of insecurity. Individually they were loveable and together they were combustible. The mystery of the stalker was a little predictable, but I enjoyed seeing Max charge in to save the day and cement his future.

    Warning: This book may spontaneously combust in your hands as it contains elements of voyeurism, exhibitionism, oral sex, anilingus, the use of wicked toys and light BDSM. But they're all used in the most pleasurable of ways.

    Disclaimer: I received an early review copy from the author. A review in exchange was not promised.

    This quick and erotic read is steamy and fun, with a little bit

    This quick and erotic read is steamy and fun, with a little bit of suspense thrown in.  Nina has wanted Max for a while.  But being co-workers, there are rules in place that force her to keep her feelings at bay.  While on a weekend retreat, however, things heat up as the two of them share an intense erotic encounter.  Max wants Nina worse than ever, but she isn’t willing to risk losing her job for him.  When Nina is invited to a Wicked Valentine’s Day Ball, she decides to go and try to get her mind off of Max.  Upon showing up, however, she discovers that Max is her escort for the evening.  Through a series of events, including someone trying to keep Nina and Max apart, the two of them grow closer than ever and have a Valentine’s Day that neither one will ever forget.




    I loved the chemistry between Nina and Max.  Their need for one another was so catching, that you could feel the intensity of it throughout the story.  The romance that transpires is beautiful, and the erotic love scenes are so hot, they make you hum in all of the right places.  The little bit of suspense that’s thrown in keeps the story interesting and adds a unique touch to an erotic short story.




    My only gripe?  That the story was longer.  I would have loved to have read more about Nina and Max, as their story is exactly the kind of erotic romance readers truly enjoy.

    For the first few paragraphs of Chapter 1, I was lured into the passionate world of Sabrina and her boss, Max's one time encounter during a retreat. It was enough to take my breathe away.
    Upon return home, Sabrina comes back to her senses and stays away from Max unable to even look at him without longing. During this period of separation you learn a bit about the characters outside of their hot, romantic encounters. The author provides just enough to make them likable and hope for them to find love in each other.
    Then you are quickly taken back and reminded your lust to see them joined again in passion once Sabrina arrives at the Wicked Valentine party finding Max as her assistant for the evening. Room by room he takes he beyond her wildest dreams. 
    Wicked Valentine is a easy, quick read. Perfect enough to get the juices flowing again.

    What a Valentine's Day! Book 2 in the Sizzling Encounters series

    What a Valentine's Day! Book 2 in the Sizzling Encounters series. Great story about a sizzling office attraction! Nina is very attracted to her bosses boss and owner of the real estate business, but there is a strict rule about dating someone from the office. What Nina doesn't know is that Max wants her too! After their first encounter in the woods at an office retreat weekend she continues to call in sick or work from home. She doesn't think she can face him and know she can't have him. 

    How can he get her to go out with him? Asking isn't working, flowers aren't working... So he invites her to the Wicked Valentines Day Party! She gives in to him at the party, but will she go missing again? Give this a book a try to see if they can work it out.

    Wow, this book was so HOT! I love a fiesty woman who knows what

    Wow, this book was so HOT! I love a fiesty woman who knows what she wants, Enter a hot,geeky stud and you have magic! I love that the characters are not the perfect body type or personality. Max is a geek who loves going to comicon and watching Star Trek. Nina is beautiful, but is back heavy lol. Max is willing to do anything to show Nina how much he wants to be with her and Nina fights him for his own good. I love that this book is short but has a story line and its different! The sex gets kinky and so HOT! You will be squirming by the end. I want to go to my own Wicked Valentine Ball!!

    Hot, sassy & oh so sexy too!!! You know you want him, he

    Hot, sassy & oh so sexy too!!!



    You know you want him, he wants you too, but office protocol says, “No fraternizing”.
    Well all the best intentions are doomed to internally combust when you try to fight the inevitable; and Nina knows that doomed will be her middle name if an office romance hits the gossip pool.
    But one sassy, curvy, sexy woman is not going to escape Max that easily, because he’s a man on a mission, and his mission is seducing this exceptionally enticing female.
    The second instalment in April Angel’s emotionally charged, searingly HOT erotic romance series “Sizzling Encounters” is just as captivating and engrossing as the first. 
    Crank up the AC, it’s about to get pressure cooker HOT in here!!!!

    This was certainly a very hot read, and the author doesn┬┐t waste

    This was certainly a very hot read, and the author doesn’t waste time before giving you the goods.  One of the first scenes is an incredibly sexy woods encounter.  That sets off the chemistry between the characters that lasts throughout the rest of the story.

    Despite that chemistry though, it took me a while to really get a sense of who the characters were beyond the sexual relationship and get a feel for some character development.  One of the author’s other books has a hero named Max and I happened to have read it recently so the hero of this one being named Max as well threw me for a chapter or two as well.

    The start of the buildup for the suspense factor was great, but then it took a major backseat to the romance (not that I’m complaining) and that really showed when it came to the final conflict as it was a little anticlimactic and predictable…though I must say it was pretty satisfying none the less.

    What really makes this story is the Wicked Valentine Ball.  Now that was a fun part to read!  The different rooms, the bringing fantasies to life, and the romantic gestures mixed in definitely get you hooked.  The fact that there was some meddling and assistance to bring the two together only made it better!

    Overall, Wicked Valentine is a quick, sexy, romantic suspense that will definitely leave you needing a cool shower!  Don’t miss this one!
