New York Times bestselling author Marie Force writing as M.S. Force…

He’s a sexual dominant. She’s sworn off sex. There’s no way they can make a relationship work—or can they?

After surviving a traumatic event at age fifteen and the ensuing estrangement from her family, Natalie Bryant has worked for years to reinvent herself into the woman she is today—a happy teacher fresh out of college and enjoying her first winter in New York City with her faithful dog, Fluff, by her side. Natalie isn’t expecting her life to change completely during a routine stroll through Greenwich Village on a blustery January day. But when Fluff breaks loose and charges into a park, Natalie gives chase and crashes into her destiny. Only after Fluff bites and draws blood from the man who accidentally knocked Natalie down does she realize Fluff has bitten the biggest movie star in the world.

He has no business being enthralled by the gorgeous, young, innocent teacher…
Natalie captivates Flynn Godfrey from the first moment their eyes meet while she is lying on the ground and he’s fighting off her ferocious little beast of a dog. The only thing Flynn knows for certain is if he lets Natalie get away, he’ll regret it for the rest of his life. After only a short time in her presence, Flynn is prepared to change who he is to be what she needs. He knows he’s in big trouble when she says she won’t sleep with him and he doesn’t care if it means he gets to keep her in his life. But can he turn his back on the lifestyle that has defined him? Can he deny the desires that drive him to give Natalie the introduction to love and romance she so deserves? And most of all, can he keep his truth hidden from her long enough to have forever with her?

Join Flynn and Natalie as their story unfolds in three full-length books released three weeks in a row: VIRTUOUS, VALOROUS and VICTORIOUS. From New York to Los Angeles, from Hollywood to Las Vegas, Flynn and Natalie’s whirlwind love affair has it all—romance, passion, steamy hot sex, relentless paparazzi and a murder that could be their undoing.

If you hate dirty-talking heroes who put it all on the line for the women they love, who leave no desire unfulfilled, who will do anything it takes to protect what’s theirs…If elements of BDSM make you queasy, if smoking hot sex isn’t your thing, if cliffhangers make you rage, if you hate first-person points of view from the heroine AND the hero… this trilogy is NOT for you! You’ve been warned…

Virtuous (Quantum Trilogy, #1)

Let me start by saying that I am a die-hard Marie Force fan. In saying that, I was definitely curious about her new venture into the erotica genre. I found that I definitely am enjoying this new side of Ms. Force’s writing. This book was great! Natalie and Flynn are now one of my top book couples. I can’t wait until the next installment comes out tomorrow! Five big big stars!

Valorous (Quantum Trilogy, #2)

Oh my, I didn’t think I could love Flynn and Natalie any more than I did in book 1 but I was wrong. This book was AWESOME! I must admit that I cried more than once in this book. Reading Natalie’s story about her past and what she endured to only come out stronger on the other side was one of the most emotional reads I have found. Then reading Flynn’s POV and seeing just how much he loves Natalie and is willing to do whatever he needs to with his own personal needs just to keep her makes you feel everything he is feeling. I love that you get both POV’s in this book. And even though I knew the cliffhanger would be coming, holy moly, what a double cliffie it was. How will I survive the next week until the final book comes out???? Great work Ms. Force!

Victorious (Quantum Trilogy, #3)

Loved this final book of the series. It was the perfect ending for Flynn & Natalie’s story. The love they felt for each other seemed to jump off the pages and into your heart. This was also the hottest of the three books. As Natalie began to explore Flynn’s sexual world with him, the pages kept getting hotter!

Marie Force’s jump into erotica made for an awesome trilogy! If you enjoy Marie Force and if you enjoy erotica, then you don’t want to miss this series! I am certainly hoping that Mrs. Force can fit more Quantum books into her writing schedule in the future! I would love to read more Flynn & Natalie along with books for the other characters. Five big stars!

He’s a player in more ways than one…

College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants. For this hockey star, life is a parade of parties and hook-ups, but behind his killer grins and easygoing charm, he hides growing despair about the dead-end road he’ll be forced to walk after graduation. A sexy encounter with freshman Grace Ivers is just the distraction he needs, but when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he’s worth a second chance.

Now he’s going to need to up his game…

After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She’s not a charity case, and she’s not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He’ll have to work for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.

Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved it! John Logan was such a great character. I loved that once he fell for Grace, he never strayed from that. Even before he realized just how deep his feelings were for her. His family life provided a very interesting side story that really had you pulling hard for him. Great book!

After Madalina Maitland receives a small inheritance from her grandfather—$1,300 and a little knickknack shaped like a Chinese dragon—she heads to Vegas for a much-needed vacation.

Thanks to the author and NetGalley, I was allowed to read a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I love Danielle Bourdon’s other work so I was very excited to get my hands on this book. It did not disappoint. There were twists and turns that kept you on your toes the entire book. There was even one shocker that I never saw coming! Plus, Chase and Madalina had quite the intensity flowing between them. No matter what was thrown at them, they always had that sexual pull to each other. It was fun to read how their attraction grew during some of the rough times they faced. Danielle Bourdon has another winner with this book. Looking forward to more of these characters. Five Stars!
