My buddy, my pal isn't with me this week :( 
But do look for Ana next weekend. 
My book budget for August is definitely blown out the damn window. There were a good amount I caught on sale...some were free and some were .99 cents. But I paid full price for Don't Leave Me this Way and the Golden Pack Alpha's. Let's see the damage, shall we.

This one I just had to get in paperback again, Zane's Addicted was my very first erotic read and I had brought it when it first came out in 2001. But with various moves, I lost it somewhere along the lines. Now the movie version of the book is coming out in late Oct I believe so you know I have to go and grab it up again. Oh and look out for my review sometime in October as well :D

Thank you Dawna @ Dee's Reading Nook for lending my Blake Haugen's Full Circle series, you rock woman. I'm going to read these after I finish my reads from NG. So...I say in about 2 weeks, look for my review :D



Thank you so much to Drea over at Lily Element Reviews for the win! Woot, can't wait to dig into this one

This is another movie I will be going to see and the movie version of the book I brought this week. Listen, there is enough man candy in the movie to make you want to drop your drawers, lols. 


 
We don't know yet, but for sure two book reviews and one movie/tv show review :)

Ambrielle Kirk's Rugged Rider's Series Blast/Giveaway


Hey Sexxy's...slow week right?! Well Labor Day is coming up and that is expected. But what about some MC dudes to make your day. Interested? yes, YAAASSS, I think you are :D
Please welcome Ms. Ambrielle Kirk...she was a regular at Salacious Reads, but best believe she will be a favorite here at Brazen Babes...
Listen Babes, you need to read this woman's work, because...because, it's the bomb! Do I know a motorcycle dude?  because if I don't, I need to find one. Wait...oh, yes....on to this spotlight.

HEEYYYY!!!!

Driven by Desire
Rugged Riders, #1

Tanya gets in way over her head when she decides that the cure to her lovesickness includes playing the field to her advantage. She vows to enjoy one reckless night with a man to help rid her mind of the ex who trashed her heart. There is one who fits the bill...

Marcus is the complete opposite of Tanya's ex. As a member of Rugged Riders, a notorious biker club, he and his brothers are known for their street-savvy swagger and their wicked ways with women. When they first meet up, Tanya and Marcus attain a mutual understanding, and she knows just what to expect from him--a thrill ride when she needs it and nothing more. When Tanya finds out that Marcus has more in common with her ex than she thought, she sets up even more barriers to guard her heart.

Not only is Marcus a beast in bed and a thrill seeker behind his bike, he dominates in the boardroom as CEO of multi-million dollar company, Svelte Technologies. He's no stranger when it comes to the game of pursuing what he wants. And Marcus wants Tanya for real and in his life exclusively.

Tanya will need more than just a helmet when she's driven by desire.

Taken by Temptation
Rugged Riders, #2

Zaira Wright loves getting her way, but that doesn't mean she won't work for it. She's only a few assignments shy of making partner at her firm--and she intends to do just that. All her plans are in order until her father does the unthinkable and hires Trent Stone as the new CFO of Svelte Technologies. Zaira is forced to work with him, but her temper isn't the only thing growing hot when she can't agree with him. Every time they're in the same room together, she melts under his heated stare.

Trent scores a lucrative position at his most trusted mentor's company. He's been vying for the chance to prove himself loyal not only through their brotherhood and connection to Rugged Riders, but also in the boardroom. There is one woman he craves more than a leadership role and her name is Zaira. The only problem is…she doesn't want to settle down, but her hot temper sets his libido on fire.

Zaira’s world gets complicated when she’s taken by temptation. She’ll need more than book smarts to successfully escape a rogue.

Tuesday Jams #91

   
Want to share that song you been loving like crazy lately? Just grab the image above or make your own...and whether you have a blog or not, you can either leave your link in the linky below OR in the comment section.

You can show a video, a music player..whateva suites your fancy. Just remember to have some fun!

All hail, the Queen B...or Bey. Okay, you must know that I have a serious girl crush on this woman. She is perfection! and after her performance at the VMAs last night?! oh she shuuuuutttt em dowwwnnnnnn! Flawless, I love. I'm always walking around the house or work (lols) singing *I woke up like this...I woke up like this* 


I'm not telling anyone to bow down, but I have on occasion woke up *flawless* No, I'm telling ya'll I did...I really did :D

What is up?! Okay, I don't have a counter to Queen B, but I do I have a song that I've been keeping on repeat this weekend... or you know, when I'm actually home lel. This song is called Butterflies by Trey Smoov ft. Fiji and Siaosi. I love all types of music, y'all know this, but I always (and I mean ALWAYS) go back to island reggae. That's my roots right there and I love supporting my Poly (Polynesian) people. These artists are HUGE within the Polynesian community. They might not be "mainstream" (but if you go to Hawaii and listen to the radio stations there, you're definitely bound to hear songs by these types of artists there), but they're amazing. When I say "Island Reggae" they're obviously not Reggae artists, but they bring that island flava to the reggae scene, and it is damned good! Anywho, let me stop with all this typing and just introduce you guys to the song :) This is the music video for the song so at the end you'll see some Samoan comedians talking about the video and the artists lol. Let me know if you guys liked my pick this week and if you've ever heard of Island Reggae and if you have let me know who/what your fave artist/song is :) PEACE!

Audio Book Review & Quote-Tastic: Heart of the Cowboy by Tali Martel



Source: Purchased
Format: Whispersync for Voice
Audible Release Date: December 23, 2013
Version: Unabridged
Publisher: Pink Lotus Publishing, Inc.
Author: Tali Martel
Narrator: Pepper Laramie
Length: 3 hours and 25 minutes
Blurb
Genre: Interracial Western Contemporary Romance
Sex: Medium to Strong Sexual Content





My Review

I had first brought the book for .99 cents and then I saw that I could upgrade to the audio book for $1.99, which wasn't bad at all so I jumped at that deal. It was a slow work day last Friday, so given the length, I was able listen and finish to Heart of the Cowboy by the end of the day (unfortunately, I still had to take phone calls...lols).

The gist of the story ~  Lila has to write a story about cowboys for the magazine she works for, so her assignment is fly out to a ranch in Wyoming for the weekend to interview Jace Millet, owner of the Triple W Ranch. She thinks her interview will be a 1-2-3 shot, but when she meets Jace in the flesh...he blows her thoughts of what she assumed to be a cowboy right of the water.

Both Lila and Jace get to know each very well over the weekend and it's not just through Lila's interview with him, if you get my meaning. When the weekend ends, they both have to decide if they want to take the relationship further.

This was a short enjoyable story to listen to for the most part. Jace and Lila were likable characters. The author jumped right into the story and there were no dragging parts for me. I think what helped move this one along for me was the narrator Pepper Laramie. She did a fantastic job with both Jace and Lila's voices, her interpretation of both characters was IMO spot on. She handled different moments between these two characters quite expertly.

In short, this was a enjoyable audio to listen too. If you are looking for a quick weekend read or a quick story to get you through the day, then I highly recommend this one.

Favorite Line
They reached her door at the same time, and as he leaned forward to open her door, a wave of fresh cut grass and cinnamon tickled her nose. Her eyes dropped closed and she inhaled deeply before climbing in.
Warmth crept up her neck. Had she seriously just smelled him? She'd never behaved like this around an interview subject. If she didn't knock it off, he was going to put her on the next plane out of here.

Well, I brought very few this week and it added to a total of  $6.40 (my book budget is thanking me right now...). AND thank you so much to S.C. Ellington and her publisher for granting me access to her latest. I was getting denied left and right through NetGalley..whatever! So thank you Ms. Ellington for letting me read your work, it is so much appreciated! And Netgalley, question? can you please list more interracial-multicultural romances? yeah...thank you (sarcasm voice...) for now, I will stick to buying my own.
