When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Book 1 in the Memphis Mayhem Series 

Becca Bramlett finished her Ph.D. and flew to Vegas to celebrate with a friend.

One in particular caught her eye and irritated her beyond belief when he and his buddies decided to party in the hallway at 3 am. As soon as she confronted him, jabbing her finger into his sexy chest, she knew one touch would never be enough. And God, could the man touch! Nothing had prepared Becca for Axl or the hot weekend they’d spent together. What they did together in bed would be burned in her mind forever. But, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas – or so she thought…. 
Ten years later - Nick Hartijay’s team, the Memphis Mayhem, is poised to become media darlings, a success story of an underdog NHL team who makes it to the Cup.

The team’s owner has a solution to the problem - bring in a fresh face, someone new to the hockey world that can help the team with their media image. Becca is that person. 
As soon as Becca sets eyes on Nick, she realizes he’s THE ONE from so long ago, the guy who set her on fire and left her wanting more - Axl. Why does he pretend he doesn’t know her? Or was the weekend not as memorable for him as it was for her? Confused by her feelings, the new job, and the sexual longings running through her body, Becca knows the only way to keep her sanity is to stay away from the handsome blue-eyed coach. The only problem is - the harder she tries to stay away, the more she wants to end up in the penalty box with him!

A Twisted Affair Vol 1 - Vol 5 by M.S. Parker

I didn't want to believe it when my PI told me that everything I'd thought I'd known about my wife and my lover was a lie. But he'd had proof. Now I needed to decide what I was going to do with the knowledge I had.
When former playboy Blayne Westmore discovers the horrific secret in Livie Dusek's past, he knows that he has a choice to make. No matter what he does, however, he knows that someone is going to get hurt. Livie thought walking away from her husband was the hardest thing she ever had to do. What she doesn't know is that he now holds information that is going to change everything. The final installment of M.S. Parker's Twisted Affair series is here. See how the roller coaster ends.
My life was almost back on track. I actually enjoyed my job. I had a gorgeous wife who my family loved, and an equally gorgeous girlfriend who I loved. But I couldn't shake this feeling that it was all going to hell soon.
As Blayne Westmore tries to juggle the woman he's married to and the woman he's in love with, he begins to see that things aren't as simple as he'd hoped. He has no doubt that he loves Katka Dusek, the fun-loving and passionate younger twin, but he also finds himself thinking more and more about her more serious, intelligent sister, Livie. When he finds out the truth, however, it shakes him to his core and leaves him with the most difficult decision he'll ever have to make. Don't miss the biggest twist yet in the penultimate installment of M.S. Parker's latest series, Twisted Affair!
When I realized I'd slept with my wife's twin sister, I'd thought everything was going to be over. My marriage. My agreement with my father. But my wife didn't seem to know and I wanted to keep it that way. There was one little problem. I couldn't seem to let things go.
Blayne Westmore has just found out that he hasn't been sleeping with his wife, gorgeous former model Livie Dusek. Instead, he's been sleeping with her identical twin, Katka. He knows he should break it off, but there's something about her that draws him to her. Now he just needs to figure out what that something is. Livie's thankful when her husband suddenly stops trying to make moves on her, but when she figures out why, she's surprised at how much it bothers her. She knows it shouldn't. Their marriage is business only, after all. She's all but expected Blayne to find women to warm his bed. She just never thought it would be her sister. And she never thought she would care. Don't miss out on book three of M.S. Parker's steamy series, Twisted Affair.
When I proposed to Livie Dusek, I didn't really think that she'd say yes, but I was glad she did. Marrying her would keep my inheritance secure and my dad off of my back. Then we slept together and I thought things were even better. I had no idea.
Ladies' man and partier Blayne Westmore has been forced into marriage, but his Czech wife is smoking hot and seems to have gone back on her previous rule about no touching...or has she? Livie doesn't know why her business-only husband has suddenly decided it's okay to try to kiss her, or why he keeps saying that they've slept together. She hopes her sister Katka isn't right that Blayne is just trying to get her into bed, but she's determined to rebuff his advances as much as possible. Once her three years are up and she has her money, she's done, and nothing that Blayne says will stop her. Volume two in M.S. Parker's sexy new series is full of twists, turns and heat. Don't miss it!
I've always loved my life. Women, drugs and alcohol. Three of the greatest things in the world. Then my father decided that I wasn't living up to the high standards of our family and gave me an ultimatum. Get married or lose it all.
When Blayne Westmore screws up for the thousandth time, his father lays down the law. Blayne has to find a wife and settle down or he'll be disowned. Twenty-three year-old Livie Dusek is a Czech immigrant working hard towards the American dream – one that doesn't involve love. But when a handsome stranger offers her a marriage proposal and more money than she could ever dream off, she accepts, much against her sister’s wishes. Livie has just one rule for her future husband: No sex between them. Don't miss the newest steamy series from best-selling author M.S. Parker.

My Review:

For me to rate these books individually does the story a great injustice. Each short story brings it's own little twist to the overall picture, and since it is a series in the true sense of the word as one picks up where the last left off they need to be read together.  As I went through and rated each book I found myself liking the story, it was okay and then I hit the end of book 4 where the story-line starts to come together.  Blayne and Livie's story is a little bit of a challenge to follow and confused me a couple of times, but it captured my attention and kept it.

I received this series as a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.  At times I think series books especially the short stories that all tie together are harder to evaluate as until they are brought together they are kind of like scenes in a movie.  That being said; I give the series a 4 star overall, and I definitely recommend that you read them as a whole story and not split up.

Aware of her precarious finances, Cooper makes an offer she can’t refuse by hiring her to be responsible for his nephew when he’s traveling with the team.

He needs a sweet, docile girlfriend, and Izzy cannot be that woman. Yet, when tragedy strikes, Izzy is there when Cooper needs her the most, and love has a way of getting what it wants, no matter the circumstances.

~*~*~*~ My Review ~*~*~*~

Crashing the Net (Game On in Seattle, #3)Crashing the Net by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good sports romance and this series by Jamie Davenport has been a very enjoyable experience, Crashing the net continued to entertain me while giving me the touch of romance and action that I love in a novel.

Cooper was not my favorite hero in a book, as a matter of fact I didn't really like him much at all most of the way through the book. I thought a few times that he was a total jerk and Izzy should kick him to the curb (hehe)... That being said I think Jami did a good job of turning him around and setting him straight :)

Hope you enjoy this one also!!
