Spring Break this week. Yeah. And my parents are taking the kids for a couple of days the end of the week, double yeah! They asked me on Easter if I would mind if they took the kids for a couple of days and I jumped on it. This week my project is to combine the kids playroom into their bedroom and turn the playroom into the nursery. Lots to do. But I sure I will still make time for reading ;) Have to rest occasionally. My pregnancy is going well. My next appointment i have to take the glucose test and that sucks. I hate that test. My first pregnancy I had to take the long version and it was sooo not fun. But that is not till the end of the month. I hope that everyone has a great week.

Sweet Surrender
Sweet Surrender by Maya Banks

Under Faith Malone’s deceptively soft exterior lies a woman who knows exactly what she wants. A strong man who’ll take without asking—because she’s willing to give him everything…
Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner—and bring him to justice. So far, he’s found a link between the killer and Faith—and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it.
Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she’s playing games. No way she would allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she?
Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance. So she takes matters into her own hands to prove to him it’s no game she’s playing. She’s willing to surrender to the right man. Gray would like to be that man. But catching his partner’s killer has to be his first priority. Until Faith is threatened and Gray realizes he will do anything to protect her.

I love her books more and more as I read them, she is becoming an auto buy for me. This was a HOT suspense. Faith is a strong woman looking for a man who can Dominate her. She is surrounded by Alpha males in her father's security company, but no one that has that spark. Gray has just lost his police partner and is looking for answers that his home precinct has given up on. This leads him to Faith's father's firm.
I liked watching them each dancing round each other. They were fun characters to follow through the story. This was a great erotic suspense and I very much recommend it if you like your books spicy.

For Her Pleasure by Maya Banks

Three novellas. Two interlocking stories. One sizzling read. Nice set up: one spirited woman in Kit Townsend, and two hot buddies, Ryder and Mac, who take turns giving Kit what she needs. It's the perfect no-strings triangle and while it doesn't exactly follow the rules, neither does Kit. But when love unexpectedly throws these three friends for a loop, can they still have a happy ending?
And then there's Mia Malone, a sweet Dallas girl who had big dreams for the future when she first met Texas Ranger Jack Kincaid. That fairy tale was a lifetime ago. Today, framed for drug possession, she's forced to work undercover at a strip joint where several working girls have disappeared. Then in walks Jack—her protector, savior, and lover.

I did not read the blurb correctly and thought that these were three separate stories. However, the first two are like a part 1 and part 2 to the same story. Then the third is about a character that you meet briefly in the second story. I enjoyed these stories they were a fun read. I am not a big fan of anthologies but this one worked for me mainly because the first and second stories were so connected. The first two stories are a menage story, the second is not. Just in case you have issues with that or you particularly enjoy those.
