Publisher's Summary

I cheated on my boyfriend. Am I sorry? Not one bit. Every moment I spent with the beautiful Navy seaman I call Adonis was worth it. Am I riddled with guilt? Without a doubt. I have to say, though, it was the kick in the pants I needed to change my life. But now, I have to go home and face the fire, and it's going to be a hot one....
Lynne's life took a tumble into a passion so searing, so scandalous, she never wanted to leave. But, for the beautiful, young, college art student, coming home from her unexpected, blurred lines, erotic tryst with Adonis means coming home to stark reality.
The Navy soldier left her marked, as if he branded her with the fury of their connection. Yet, every intention she has to break up with her longtime live-in guy flies out the window when her cheating boyfriend becomes jealous, violent, possessive, and out of control. Only scorching memories of her time with the sizzling seaman keep her going. What seemed like an easy breakup turns into the fight of her life.
Tara's determined to change...steadfast in her quest to free herself from her horrid circumstances. When she can't find a means to contact Adonis, she reluctantly agrees to join forces with the dashing motocross racer and freestyle rider she's known since high school: Matt Mitchell. She takes off on a journey that speaks to her courage and her desire to make something of her life. In the process, she finds a love she never dreamed possible...and thought she'd lost forever.

Keep Up, Its Confusing With The Pet Names


First the bad: I could not keep up with which character was which as they had given one another nicknames but only the lovers new nicknames. I finally caught on to it about halfway through and then everyone started calling them by their given names, which confused me all over again.

By the end of the book I think I had everyone straight in my mind.

Now the good news: This was an intriguing book about a woman who is in a poor relationship and treated as such. One weekend she decides to go away and meets up with a sailor for a one night stand – no problem, right?

The Navy man, it's actually a submarine guy, I think the term used in this book was submariner. As soon as the one night stand was over he was sent on assignment. They are unaware of each others whereabouts.

The characters in this book seem to be very simple, as in simpleminded. They were rather enjoyable and it was only toward the end I realized that this is the fourth in the series. While *I was given the chance to listen to this book in exchange for my review, I really enjoyed it and I am going to look for the rest of the series on Audible and put them on my WishList.

The narration was a bit difficult to understand at times but overall was very good. The narrator had to perform both men and women, young and old while explaining what's going on in the busy story. She definitely earns four stars

Notes: mature situations, strong language, and a bit of violence
If I were to rate it like a movie, it would probably be PG-13 or R

Love Triangle - May the Best Hero Win

Sassy Aphrodite and Her Sweet, Dirty Mouth continued Tara Lynne and Zack Brannon's story. Tara has traveled back to L.A. from San Diego. She knew she's going to leave her boyfriend Justin except she doesn't know when. Her resources are limited as a art student and that she hasn't work while leaving with Justin.

Justin's behavior to Tara has been demeaning. Even his friend Matt Mitchell is disgusted with Justin's behavior to her. Justin has made several excuses in being with his female biker groupies. When Tara is with Justin and his friends, he starts to get jealous when Tara talks to his friends.

When Tara caught Justin's cheating on her, Tara knew everything that Matt told her is true and that even her own suspicion is validated. Tara escaped with Matt to Portland, Oregon.

Zack "Adonis", is having his own issues. His PTSD is taken hold of his life. His Commanding Officer, his injury, and his ex-girlfriend are taking a toll on his mental and physical health. The only thing that kept him going is Tara and that one night that he spent with her. As his ex-girlfriend pushed him to his limit, he realized too late that he has destroyed his phone which is the only way his only connection to reach Tara.

Fate doesn't keep Tara and Zack apart. Just as Tara realized that she will never be able to contact Zack, she was going to plan her future with Matt. As much as Tara loves Matt, she doesn't love Matt the same way she loves Zack. There are time that I wanted Matt to be the one but Tara and Zack do belong together. I do feel sorry for Matt but Matt has decided to be Tara's best friend if he wanted to Tara to stay in his life.

Sassy Aphrodite and Her Sweet, Dirty Mouth really came through after the first three books in Blurred Lines series. I really love the ending of the Tara and Zack's story. I would love to hear Matt's story and hope he finds his happily after ending.

I do recommend that the readers/listeners read/listen to the first three books in the Blurred Lines series first to understand the dynamics of Tara and Zack's relationship. Without knowing their background information, readers/listeners can easily assumed the wrong conclusion of their relationship.

The narrator, D. Rampling does a wonderful job narrating this story. I love that the narrator reflected through her narration of Tara's growth as a person from someone who has always been dependent for someone to take care of her to getting her independence to get care of herself. Zack may be stuck in his turmoils but he also learned to seek help from his work resources and from Matt.

I was given this audiobook by the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange of an honest review. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.
