Review: Ruled by Elle Kennedy

The latest novel in the series with the “sexiest, baddest, hottest”* outlaws around, from the New York Times bestselling author of Claimed.
 
In the latest novel in the series with the “sexiest, baddest, hottest”* outlaws around, one woman must choose between the two men who want to claim her...
 
...Or does she?

Despite his magnetic personality, Rylan can’t seem to seduce Reese, the deadly leader of their town of outlaws. Winning her over is a welcome challenge, but her indifference isn’t the only thing standing in his way. If he wants Reese, Rylan must also win over Sloan, her stoic protector...

Sloan has always loved Reese, but their painful past has stolen his chances of a future with her. Rylan’s interest in Reese only intensifies the tension—until Sloan begins to wonder if the reckless man might be the one person who can bridge the distance...

The last time Reese fell for the wrong man, she had no choice but to kill him. Now, she desperately wants to take what both Rylan and Sloan are offering. But if she makes the wrong call again, she risks losing them both.

They're baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack and hotter than ever!!!!

This sexy, misfit, motley crew of Outlaws have returned to turn my life upside down and inside out! Holy. Crap! You guys!!! This installment in the Outlaws series is beyond hot! It's downright filthy and action packed... in and out of the bedroom *wink* Who knew Dystopian could be erotic and so devour-able?! Not, I. Says the girl who doesn't read this genre. At all. As I've said before, Elle Kennedy has opened my eyes to a whole new reading world! She can write anything she sets her mind to, making it completely addictive and leave you wanting more. When it comes to raw writing talent, Elle has it in spades!! Her book hangovers hurt. A lot.

Ruled is packed full of nerve wracking story line, twists and curve balls, ever moving the plot along at almost warp speed. Or, maybe I just read certain parts way too fast lol
OH MY NERVES!
Enforcers, the Global Council and Outlaws, everything is coming to a brute head! War is so close I can almost smell it. I can almost taste it. Like Addicted, I feel like I lived this book. The Colony/township of Foxworth is so realistic in my mind. The town square, Reese's bedroom (lol), and those damn pesky gates. Such vivid depiction making everything about this book and series carnal and raw.

I came.
I read.
I conquered.
And GD it! I still never got the t-shirt!!!

'Because it all came down to her. Her word. Her plan. Her decisions...'

Reese is a feisty force of a woman to be reckoned with! Always armed with a game plan in mind. Survival is the name of the game in life. With little time to think of herself, her wants and needs. It's not long before she's blindsided by not one, but two sexy beasts of chiseled man meat. Ruled is Reese's story and you better strap yourself in. Shit gets real and raw quick. Life is no joke when you're an Outlaw. Barriers will be smashed, hearts set a fire on this journey of trust, vengeance, survival and love.

'It was almost more threat than promise, but in this untamed land, wild souls needed fierce promises.'

Review: The Goal by Elle Kennedy

She’s good at achieving her goals…

College senior Sabrina James has her whole future planned out: graduate from college, kick butt in law school, and land a high-paying job at a cutthroat firm. Her path to escaping her shameful past certainly doesn’t include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all she’s willing to give John Tucker, but sometimes, one night is all it takes for your entire life to change.

But the game just got a whole lot more complicated

Tucker believes being a team player is as important as being the star. On the ice, he’s fine staying out of the spotlight, but when it comes to becoming a daddy at the age of twenty-two, he refuses to be a bench warmer. It doesn’t hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrina’s heart is locked up tight, and the fiery brunette is too stubborn to accept his help. If he wants a life with the woman of his dreams, he’ll have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

5 "No big deal. It was just the tip." Stars


I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!

Once again, Elle Kennedy has made my booknerd heart complete with another installment in her crazy addictive Off Campus series. These men and their sticks *happy sigh*

First it was Garrett who stole a piece of my heart.
Then along came Logan, who stole a piece for himself.
And then there was Dean...BIG DEAN, little dean, allllll the Deans...who unexpectedly came crashing in and took what belonged to him... I really did hate him once upon a time.
AND NOW!
NOW, John freaking Tucker has swooped in with all his sweet, gentlemanly Texas charm and swagger...and that beard and took what's left of my heart and then proceeded to swoon the panties off me, so Sabrina really didn't stand a chance lol. You really do need to watch out for the quiet ones!

To the outside world, Sabrina James puts on a good show of being tough and impervious to it all, but in reality, she's vulnerable and sweet and precious.

Sabrina is a girl with a plan-THE end GOAL in sight, only a few years away. Between working two jobs and her studies, there's no time for relationships only a quick dicking every now and then.  And only with jocks...stamina and all that *wink* We all know her reputation from Dean's book-the unlikable, uppity b*tch. Soooo...yeah, I was caught a bit off guard with how quick I fell in love with her character. As the saying goes 'there's always two sides to a story.' And hers would be enough to break a lesser person.

I'm trashy. I live with trashy people. I belong in a trashy place. The question is, will I ever be able to rub off the stench of my past to belong at Harvard? I thought I could. But tonight, I honestly don't know.

The Goal takes on a bit more of a serious tone than its predecessors, simply due to it's content. Sabrina hasn't had an easy life like the majority of the characters in the series. Nevertheless, the hilarious and inappropriate banter we love between the guys remains and is perfectly placed within the book. And lets not forget the hot, sweaty, kinky times. Lots and lots of kinky times. Elle Kennedy did an amazing job balancing the serious with the fun, the highs with the lows and the sex with the reality of the 'matter'. Enthralling from page one to the very last word. You really can't go wrong by picking up one of her books!

"So money doesn't matter once you get down to it. It doesn't matter how thin or thick anyone's wallet is. We all hurt. We all love. We're the same. And your past, who you live with, where you came from, it doesn't have to matter. You're creating your own future, and I want to see where the road forward takes you."

It'll be a sad day when this series ends...perhaps now is the time to start begging for Fitzy's book??! Yeah, I think it is!!!!! Ooooooooh, ELLLLLLEEEEEEE!!!!!

Never in my life have I felt more at peace than in this very moment. "I love you." I whisper

I loved the glimpses of the other boys we saw throughout the book! The story flowed flawlessly and captivated me from the first sentence!!! Elle did not disappoint but now I want some Fitzy in my life!! Please Elle!!!

SQUEEE….John Tucker…ladies be prepared to instantly fall in love with this guy. He will steal your heart right in the very beginning, actually you’ll probably just end up handing it over to him. He was the total package! Sweet, honest, nurturing and HOT AS HELL!

I went into this book not liking Sabrina James. She has been in the other books and I just never really cared for her. But reading this story she might just be my new favorite heroine. She was strong, independent and not afraid to ask for exactly what she wanted.

I loved that this story was so real to life. I liked that the Author didn’t’ fabricate or overdo the plot of the story especially when THE BOMB dropped. Sabrina and John’s love grew slowly and it was very mature. They really had deep respect for one another and their caring for one another was genuine and melted my heart.

This was the perfect story about accepting responsibility for your actions. Falling in love and making the life that you want.

Review: Addicted by Elle Kennedy

From the New York Times bestselling author of Claimed comes the second enticingly erotic novel set in a world on the brink of chaos.
 
Lennox used to live in a paradise on earth with his best friend Jamie, in a place where visitors came and went, allowing their desires to run free. But everything changes when a deadly attack forces them to take up with Connor Mackenzie’s band of Outlaws. Lennox knows Jamie is hung up on someone else, but he’s always believed he’s the man for her—and won’t let her go without a fight.

Even though Jamie is well aware that Lennox is one hot specimen of a man, she refuses to let sex ruin the most important relationship in her life. But when the object of her interest spurns her, she indulges in a little pleasure-filled revenge with her very magnetic, very willing best friend. One thrilling night with Lennox is enough to awaken Jamie’s unexpected desires for him. And now that she’s had a taste, she’s not sure she can ever give him up...

 4.5 Addictive Stars

WOW!

Who knew a post-apocalyptic war ravaged world could be so sinful and downright dirty?! Not me, that's for sure! Elle Kennedy has opened my eyes and mind to a whole new genre and world of reading. Mind. Blown. After devouring Addicted I'm a bit obsessed. How long until Ruled is released? GAH! I need it now!

Undeniably addictive, Addicted is action packed and highly erotic. A profound and captivating work of prose that will consume your mind and life in it's entirety. It's just you and the book, completely transfixed. Nothing else will matter until this sexy beast and been ravaged and devoured.
MmmMmm! My god, it's deliciously orgasmic! *wink*

Elle has the innate ability of vividly depicting such realism and imagery with ease, making this book play-out like a movie in my head. The steel walls and gate that provide protection to Foxworth- yep, I've been there and seen them. Unfortunately they were out of t-shirts that day, maybe next book,eh? The town center, the training events, to the library and infirmary- I've lived in their world alongside the dozens of characters that I came to know quite well, all while being a voyeur to the outrageously steamy, sexy times. OH.MY.GOD! Dirty, smutty and jaw dropping pages of sweaty sexual debauchery. Whoa! Baby! *begs- please Elle, can we have some more?*

A complex story line full of Outlaws, Enforcer Units and Bandits, Camps vs. Colonies, this is a tale of perseverance, survival, love and a few dozen multiple orgasms. I could not help but get sucked into this fictional realm. *fans self* Is it hot in here?!!?

Carnal and raw, the lust and sexual tension flowing between Lennox and Jamie will knock you on your ass. Two strong-minded characters with an unbreakable bond.
Alpha male vs. The strong willed heroine.
GAH!! The intensity of it all!
The sex.
The angst.

I loved everything about this book!
E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.
...especially the dirty sex!

Review: The Score by Elle Kennedy


He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

Dean, Dean, Dean. Dean Di Laurentis…he is one cocky, foul mouthed, man whoring, dirty talking hockey player. Yep that about sums him up! Some of the things that came out of his mouth were downright hilarious while others were sometimes hot as hell.


Allie (Allie- Cat) is a repressed good girl that gets in touch with her wild side after a hard breakup from a long term relationship. This wild side ends up colliding with Dean one night and let me tell you, sparks definitely ignite a flame.


This story has some hot sex in it. The characters back and forth pull and banter with each other is very amusing. I loved it! This was a great hot little read with a bit of drama and heartbreak in it but mostly funny, enticing and very entertaining.

5 Little Dean "stars" ;)


As a HUGE fan of the Off Campus Series, I couldn't wait to get my filthy little book whoreish hands on The Score! To be honest, I wasn't huge on Dean from the few glimpses of his character in the previous two books. BUT this series is SOOOOOO addictive and one of my top favourites...so... I had to give Dean a chance, right? And thank god I did! Because O.M.G! I love Dean! Little Dean, Big Dean, ALL.THE.DEANS that make up this complicated, mislabeled, sexy and swoony as hell man!


It felt like I took forever to get through this book, but it's not what you're thinking. I actually devoured it in a night. There were so many times I had to stop reading. The banter was killing me! In hysterics laughing to the point of crying and getting hiccups!!!! Twilight, imprinted pussy and Winston just about wrecked me LOL!! THEN OMG!!! All the swoony scenes I had to reread over and over and over aaaaaaaaaaaaand over again! ...cue the bedroom entrance scene, where all Dean says is "Baby." Hello, butterflies!! aaaand Swooooooooooooon! I seriously thought my face was going to break from the goofy grin I had plastered on throughout most of the book.

Watching the "King of casual hookups" fall in L.O.V.E with the most unlikely suitor was just... I can't even! It was perfect! Every single thing about this book. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect! The ups, downs and learning experiences of life and relationships were spot on!

Elle Kennedy definitely scored a hat-trick with the addition of this installment to the series!

Well hot damn I really didn't think Elle could top The Deal.... The off campus series is one of my all time favorite! But she did!! The Score was fanfreakingtastic!

Dean the man whore finally falls in love with the one woman who isn't trying to fall in love with him! Ms. Relationship Allie decides to have a little "fun" for once in her life and things get complicated... This book sucked me in from the first page and didn't let me go! I loved every minute of it except the minutes I had to put it down and do real life stuff like work....

There were times in this book when I had tears running down my face from laughing (ie Winston) and there were times my heart was in my throat about to cry... This book was seriously the perfect combination of humor, swoon, heart melt and heart break.

I loved every character and every scene and I hope Elle never stops writing! Everyone needs to read this phenomenal book! I have just one word for you TUCKER... We can only hope!
