Blog Tour, Rachel's Review: The Scandalous Senator by Ashley Beckem


Scandalous Senator
by Ashley Beckem
Genre: Erotica



“Scandalous Senator” Alexander is a Senator in Washington, D.C. and his main focus is on his rise to the top. 

He takes no prisoners, especially his relationship and marriage to his wife Brooke. Little does he know that Brooke is willing to do anything to make him President of the United States of America (POTUS) and most importantly First Lady. 

Seduction is part of the game and no one is off limits especially if it will enhance their chances for this aggressive power couple. 

Come along for this journey. 

***Warning!! Cheating, backstabbing, power, you name it we have it all and of course a cliff hanger as this is a multi-part series. 

Rachel's Review~
The sex is great.  The idea of a secret room, complete with recording equipment from outside cameras and bondage basics...makes me want o find a house just like that!  Along with a man like Xaner of course, that will enjoy it with me.
This was my first book by Ashley Beckem so I didn't quite know what to expect.
The storyline was right there, unfortunately for me I couldn't connect with it.  It's j ust not the writing style I prefer.  
As I was reading, instead of letting the story move through me, it was more like reading transcripts of conversations, sometimes even having to read it through a couple of times to even figure out for sure who was doing the speaking.  It's all about becoming President and the First Lady...seemingly to the detriment of everything else around them.  While I don't need my books wholly realistic there has to be some semblence of normalcy to connect with.  I just can't see me telling my husband to sleep with your manager since it will further your career..and I'll sleep with someone to get them to donate money...and you sleep with...and I'll sleep with..but don't worry we'll still love and respect each other when we're done.
Even though I had a hard time finishing...I'll have to grab the next book because there's a cliffhanger and I can't NOT read it...what if I were to miss something important...or something that changes my mind about the story..So,
I'll go with 3.5 stars because I have to read the next one.
While this wasn't really my cup of tea..I have seriously high standards since my time is important..So if you're looking for something to read, and you like politicians and hot sex...PLEASE, grab this one and give it a whirl.
Just make sure you can handle cheating and voyeurism. (and really, if you're reading in this genre I'm pretty sure neither is a problem) LOL.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00030]

Dane Prescott spends his days staring at perfect holes, and knows how to use his stiff shaft to get there. He’s as hot as he is good at the sport he loves more than breathing. 

Dane has one goal and one goal only, to be on the professional golf tour. It’s who he is and what he lives for. Women, although fun, aren't in his long-term plans. 

Beverly Whitfield didn’t start off as the confident woman she is today. Teased mercilessly as a child and always feeling second-best, she set out to change her future and is finally putting herself first. Never in her wildest imagination did she think she’d fall for a man with stunning good looks and sex seeping from his pores. And, oh yeah, he plays golf. 

To those who say golf is complicated and frustrating, Dane says, “No, that’s love.”

**Intended for readers over the age of 18**

What a fabulous 4.5 star read!
Seriously...do you know how many times I've fallen asleep to the sound of the quaint golf clap? well, Dane Prescott, the Nameless Wonder, brings life to the links, literally, women flock when he appears... Joanne Schwehm has given golf a new name (ok we all know Adam Scott has, really) but Dane and Beverly bring the sexy.
Dane is serious about golf...to the exclusion of all else..nothing is as important to him as his up and coming golf career...Beverly can give a rats you know what about golf. She's soooo tired of hearing about it...it's all her parents want to do..golf, golf, golf...So she's not interested in ANYTHING to do with that sport...until she spots DANE...
With excellent writing, super sexy scenes, and fantabulous characters you can't go wrong with this Prescott story.
The chemistry between Dane and Beverly is amazing. I promise!!! You'll love it...
4.5 stars

Cover Reveal: Ulterior Designs by Ella Dominguez




Long Story Short: 

Book one in a new-adult romance duet.
Warning: This book is designed for readers 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

A blueprint for desire.
With a shared passion for breathing life into an unconventional dream home, the attraction between a struggling new grad of interior design and an award-winning architect with eclectic sexual tastes is irresistible. But with a cloud of lies and loss hanging over him, the only arrangement Logan wants is one of indulgence and pleasure. However, fate seems to have another design plan in mind for them—a plan that ultimately leads them down a path of desire and discovery.
When the man obsessed with creating his unusual home sets his sights on the woman who keeps unknowingly navigating her way back to him, lust clouds his judgment and he makes an inappropriate proposition. After nearly blowing his chances with the talented and alluring beauty, he readjusts his plans, because it just so happens that his sexy ulterior motives go hand-in-hand with her expertise in interior design.
Though Chloe may be young and naïve in Logan's eyes, she sees him for who and what he is: a man with severe commitment issues. But she's optimistic—maybe too optimistic. And she isn't easily deterred or scared away either, not even by the unusual nature of his design plans or his eclectic sexual tastes. In fact, she's intrigued by them. Faced with a man who can give her not only the experience she needs to propel her career, but everything she's ever fantasized about, she hopes that their physical and intellectual compatibility can prevail over his fears. And more importantly, that they can move forward to become not only design collaborators, but partners on a deeper level.
