5* #Review #Giveaway Specimen by @Savage7289 @RSofRomance


A soldier, a doctor, and a stark white laboratory full of lies.
Specimen by Shay Savage is NOW LIVE!

I awaken in a laboratory.
I don’t know who I am.
I’m inexplicably drawn to the doctor who cares for me.  She tells me I’ve been altered, that I’m stronger and faster, that I’ll be a key component in a war between corporations.  She says I volunteered for this.  She says I volunteered to be transformed, but I have no way of knowing if what she says is true.
Something isn’t right.  My memories have been taken, wiped clean, but dreams begin to slip into my conscious mind.  I can’t let anyone know when that happens, or they’ll remove my memories again.  Somewhere inside of me, I know I need to remember something important.
I’m fighting a war I don’t understand, and the one woman I rely on can’t be trusted.

Review - 5 Stars
5 Crazy Stars

Wow!! This was my first read by Shay Savage and I have to say that I am a huge fan now. This book was crazy good. I was so not expecting what we got from Shay on this one but I am glad that I had the opportunity to read this one!

When we start on this journey with STEN (not his real name, but his nickname given to him by his doctor), he is strapped down on an examination table and he has no clue as to where he is or what is going on. STEN can see a woman in the room with him and he knows that she is his doctor, but that is about it. STEN also knows that he is insanely attracted to his doctor, whom we learn is Riley. STEN is in and out of consciousness and can only piece things together when he is conscious. He has dreams about a farm and someone he calls his little sister, but those memories are sort of foggy and come and go for him. STEN knows that when he is awake, sometimes he can only remember some parts of what he does and then he wakes up again on the exam table. Most of the time he is restrained and can not move. He longs to touch Riley, but she assures him that he is fine and things are going better than expected with his transformation. STEN has no idea what Riley is talking about but is told that he volunteered for an experimentation that is taking place with him and several other men.

When STEN is able to stay awake longer amounts of time, he and Riley begin to talk and he learns more and more about her. His attraction for her grows immensely, but he also knows that she gives him injections that control his body and his consciousness. Riley starts to take STEN to simulations to test how his body is adjusting to the medications and altercations that have been made to him. STEN always does better than expected by the standards they have for the Specimen's. As training progresses, STEN is put into real life situations and he realizes that even though these are fake, his feelings for Riley are stronger than ever and he will stop at nothing to protect her.

When a turn of events happens in the story, we follow STEN on an adventure to test his capabilities in the real world. STEN gets captured and is put into another situation much like the one he has been in but these people are telling him that they are erasing his memory and that they are the bad people while the people that have him now are the good ones. STEN is confused and does not know who to believe really. When Riley and STEN meet back up after a short separation, we go on a journey with these two to get some of the medicines that STEN needs to help him keep his strength up and to not turn into a crazy person. The adventures in this story keep you turning the pages and on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen to STEN. I love the way that Shay never lets there be a dull moment in the plot. Just when you think that things are going to settle down, BAM, there is another turn of events.

This was brilliantly written and the way that it ends will blow your mind. I just sat there like, WHAT???? I cannot wait for Shay Savage to give us more of her alpha males, especially the ones on steroids that have no fear in protecting the one they love. Thanks for a great read!
*Review by Melanie H

“That’s why I can’t stop thinking about fucking you.”
Her eyes widen, and she quickly looks away from me.  She stands and starts to pull her hand away, but I push myself off the bed and grasp her arm before she can go anywhere.  Our bodies touch, and I reach one arm around her back and pull her tightly against me.
I cup her face with my hand and run my thumb across her lips.  Her scent is all over me now, and I want to experience her with my tongue.  Would her taste resemble her scent or complement it?  I have to know.
Pulling her closer, I press my open mouth to hers.  Her body stills, and she grips my shoulder with one hand as the other presses against my chest.  Her mouth is warm.  I can feel her breath as my tongue slides inside.  Her taste is indefinable, smooth like sweet liquor I can’t recall ever tasting.
There is a shift inside of her.  It can’t be seen or heard, but I can smell it and taste it.  The smell of her skin becomes darker, thicker.  I feel her flex her fingers on my shoulder as she tilts her head to allow me to deepen the kiss.
How would her scent change if I were inside of her?  What sounds would she make when she comes?  Would she muffle her cries or be loud enough for all those watching us to hear?  How would it feel to come inside of her?  What sounds would I make?
I don’t even know if I’m a virgin.
Reaching behind her, I shove whatever is on the side table to the floor, lift Riley up, and set her down on the edge.  I grip her hips and pull her against my stomach.  The table is too high.  I can’t fuck her from this angle.  I break the kiss, lift her effortlessly, turn, and drop her ass to the edge of the bed.
“Sten, stop!”
I freeze my actions.  My entire body tightens, and my dick throbs in my shorts.
It’s too much.  I need this.  I need her.
I don’t move.
“You have to let go of me.”
I squeeze my eyes shut and withdraw my hands only enough to release her.  I keep them close enough to still feel the heat from her body and detect the shift of air when she moves.  She uses her hands to push herself backward on the bed, away from me.
The muscles in my legs shake.  I’m so wound up, and I can’t let it go.  The tension becomes painful and the need for release so prevalent, I can no longer think.  I grip the edge of the bed until my knuckles turn white.  As soon as she pulls her legs back and pushes herself off the edge of the bed, on the side opposite me, I grab the bed and throw it, smashing it into the mirror.
I glare at my reflection, and the strange dark eyes glare back at me.  The unfamiliar lips are curled up in a snarl, and the unkempt beard creates a frightening image.  Everything about the man looking back at me is alien.
Didn’t I just shave last night?

Guy Rule #1: Sisters Are Off Limits

Bailey Cross grew up as the only daughter of a single mom. When she finds out about a family she never knew she had, she travels half-way across the country to meet them. On the night Bailey hits town, her nerves get the better of her, making her act out of character when she meets Wyatt Kincaid in a bar and lets him take her home. After a night that rocks her world, she races out of his bed as quickly as she fell into it. But, there is one thing Bailey can’t run from, the baby she and Wyatt created.

Wyatt went out looking for a good time and found a hell of a lot more than he’d bargained for. He wants more than a one night stand with the woman in his bed; he wants a chance at forever. But when he wakes up the next morning, she’s gone. He searches for her, but Bailey is nowhere to be found… until he goes looking in his best friend’s home.

Warning: This novella contains a sexy alpha, insta-love, and an "oops" baby! It's quick, hot, and dirty.

(Review here, if reviewing)

Our conversation lulled and we stared at each other, the silence thick and heavy with want. Her eyes were filled with need, so I closed the distance between us and gently placed my mouth on hers. Her lips immediately parted, and I left gentle behind as my tongue swept in to mate with hers, my head slanting to deepen the kiss. I dove a hand into her lustrous hair and the other landed on her hip, bringing our bodies as flush as possible considering we were seated side by side. The air heated up, and I was no longer satisfied with the angle of our bodies, so I grasped her hips and started to lift her over to straddle me—
I jerked back at the loud crack and Bailey’s muffled cry of pain as she flopped back down beside me, cursing and rubbing her knee. She’d obviously hit it on the wooden table.
“Well, that was smooth,” I drawled sarcastically, causing Bailey to giggle. “How about we try that again?”
Bailey eyed the tabletop skeptically. “I hate to break it to you Casanova, but I think the booth wins this round.” She glanced around as though just remembering where we were. “Besides, I think the direction we were headed was bound to end up with us getting arrested for public indecency.” She laughed and shook her head ruefully.
“You’re right,” I agreed. “I’m a much bigger fan of private indecency.” I leaned down and put my face in the crook of her neck, nibbling my way up to her ear.  “How about we try this again somewhere else?”
Bailey tilted her neck, giving me better access to the column of her throat. Damn, she tasted so fucking delicious.
“Um, what did you”—she gasped when I lightly bit her skin and grabbed onto my biceps—“have in mind?”
I licked the spot and whispered, “My house. I live about ten minutes from here.”
Her chin bumped my head when she nodded, and I sat back to make sure I wasn’t assuming anything. Her pink lips were puffy and a little red from rubbing against my scruff. She looked hot as hell.
There was uncertainty floating in her blue depths, a slight nervousness too. I hesitated, worried that I’d misread the situation. She leaned forward and dragged my bottom lip between her teeth, before letting it go and searing me with her blazing eyes. “Ten minutes?” I nodded. “That’s an awfully long time.”
I groaned, forgetting whatever it was I had been thinking and adjusted myself, grabbed her hand, and hauled her up from the booth. I was hard as a fucking rock and only sinking between her thighs was going to give me any relief.

  This is War Baby FRONT ONLY

My life had a plan. Until he invaded it and stole it all away. My captor took me and I became a pawn. His strategy changed and he sent me away to WAR, because money is everything in this world. In my WAR, though, I found peace. I couldn’t help but find love where I least expected it, with a man who lived a battle every day of his life …all inside his head. But then my captor came back for me. Yet, this time, battle lines had been drawn and I was protected. So we thought. Even though my WAR was raging, my captor would fight to the death. The good guys always win, right? Not always. All’s fair in love and WAR, right? Not this time.

  Warning: This is War, Baby is a dark romance. A really dark one. So dark you’re going to wish you had a flashlight to see yourself to the end and someone to hold your hand. Human trafficking, dubious consent, and strong sexual themes that could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. This story is NOT for everyone.

#Excerpt #Teasers Hard Target by @marquitaval @wordsmithpublic

We're celebrating the release of HARD TARGET by Marquita Valentine!

Title: Hard Target (Target #2)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 16, 2016

Book Description:
Ten years ago, Benjamin Romanov left behind a world of violence and intrigue. Now he’s living the dream as the chief technology officer at PharmGen, the world’s largest provider of vaccinations. The perks are amazing—a luxury penthouse, fast car, and his pick of women. The only downside to his job is reporting employees for less than scrupulous e-mail practices, but when he is forced to confront an employee in the lab, he ends up preventing a security guard from killing an innocent woman.

Receptionist Morgan Tanner never meant to get caught in the crosshairs of a deal gone wrong. All she wanted was one night of excitement with the sexy and elusive Benjamin Romanov. But now they’re on the run, and Benjamin thinks she has something to do with why everyone wants to kill them. Only she has no idea what’s going on at all—she was only in the lab to deliver a time-sensitive package.

With time running out, Benjamin must find a way to protect an innocent woman while keeping his distance… and expose PharmGen to the world before the deadly virus is unleashed. 


“Don’t you want to tell me how you’re going to kill me?” Frantic and desperate, I scan the room, looking for something to hit or stab him with. “All the best villains give a detailed description.”
He nudges my head with something hard. The gun, probably. “It’s simple. You didn’t follow protocol, so now I have to kill you.”
“You’re going to kill me for sleeping with Ben?” I all but shriek.
“Shut up.” He kicks me in the back.
I fall forward with a cry, my head narrowly missing hitting the floor. Squeezing my eyes shut, I begin to pray.
A shot rings out and my body jerks, but there’s no pain. There’s a thud.
My eyes open and they’re staring straight at a face. Only the face has a hole in the center of the forehead and it’s smoking. A thin line of blood runs down from it.

He’s dead.

“Don’t make me hit you again.” She narrowed her eyes, reaching behind herself and shutting the water off.

“Go ahead. Maybe you hitting me turns me on.” His grin widened as he reached over and pulled her back up to him, her wet, naked body pressed to his.

“You’re always turned on, Alex. I could spit on the ground and you’d get an erection.” She rolled her eyes, pressing her palms against his chest. “I’m sure you have some sort of hormone imbalance.”

“And baby, you’re the only one who can keep it under control.” He pressed his lips to hers, and her body responded immediately. She melted against him. Her lips parted for his tongue, allowing him to kiss her back. When his cock stirred to life, nudging against her stomach, Ellie pulled back, prying her lips away from his.
