Review & Giveaway - A TOUCH OF LILLY






A Touch of Lilly
by Nina Pierce


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


Ex-Chicago detective LILLY D’ANGELO has a secret she doesn’t share with anyone. A master of the one night stand, she’s given up ever finding a soul mate and thrown herself head first into her career. That is, until she captures the wrong alien. Kidnapped and sold into the sex slave trade, she’s shipped into deep space. Barely escaping with her life, Lilly now travels the galaxy working as a bounty hunter using her secret talents to bring down criminals and seeking revenge on the one male who ruined her life.  


Agent DALLAS SAWYER works for deep space’s version of the FBI. After a disastrous mission that left several of his team members murdered, a president executed, and Dallas near death, he’s determined to take down the assassin targeting government officials. When a sexy human female gets between him and his goal, Dallas and his alien partner find themselves on the receiving end of a passionate night they won’t soon forget and a proposition that may very well blow up in their faces.


Because in deep space … true love can happen with just a touch.

Excerpt :


He maneuvered them through the growing throng of the tavern figuring he could enjoy a quick romp and get the human as far from this place as he could before all hell rained down.


“I don’t even know your name,” she said.


“My friends call me Sawyer. You can call me Dallas.”


“Like the planet? Dallas Eight?”


“No the city.” He pulled open the door and motioned her onto the street.


The woman scrunched her face in that cute habit she had. Maybe she’d never been to Earth. It wasn’t so farfetched. Since the first wave of humans left Earth nearly sixty years ago, hoping to find uninhabited planets to ease Earth’s overcrowding, they’d managed to reproduce on all dozen planets in the Nebulae Galaxy. Dallas knew there were at least two generations of humans on Reigis Alpha who had never set foot on their planet of origin.


“As in Texas?” she asked.


He stopped short just outside the tavern. “You know Earth?”


Even in the blue wash of the unnatural lights lining the bustling street he could see the color flooding her cheeks. “I’m human, aren’t I?” She planted her hands on her hips.


Yep, he’d screwed that up. Her color was indignation, not embarrassment.

~~~~MY REVIEW~~~
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wowzaa this book was so hot it singed my kindle!!!

Lilly is a spunky independent gal with tons of sass! Just the kind of girl I live to read, she kicks serious butt! And talk about using her feminine wiles, you go girl! She was a really strong and self reliant character even when facing adversity.

Dallas is delicious with all his tortured Alpha tough guy attitude. Live a man of mystery! Totally lickable hero with a white knight complex.

Thaegan had a rough start for me. I had a moment where I did not like him very much. But he made up for it later, big time!

A really great story that moved at a quick pace. I really dig a sexy scifi with delicious aliens! The side plot was really well thought out and kept the story flowing. I was with them from the beginning to the end. The whole world was fascinating and I can only hope this is the beginning of a steamy series!

The steam factor was off the charts!! Duo and ménage action making the hot and heavy threaten to burn my circuits! Every scene was better than the last and by the end I needed a cold shower! Kudos!!

I am definitely going to be picking up more of Ms Pierce's work. If they are all as scrumptious as this one I may not stop until I have devoured her whole backlist!!

    1. You have been on my TBR list for awhile and this finally gave me a chance to read you! Now I need to win some Amazon cards so I can get your other books! Really enjoyable read. Although, I like the EC cover a little better. Makes it easier to tell it will be a menage.

      Any hopes of this being a series? I dig a little alien action! LOL

    2. Thanks so much Melissa and Nina!

      I never know if I write enough in my reviews. I am not the kind of reviewer who rewrites the book blurb or gives a synopsis of the book. I also hate spoilers and try to avoid them at all costs.

      Mostly I write my thoughts and what I would want to know about the book. It is great that folks appreciate that! Glad to have made your days!

      Now back to my reading!!

    3. It is a tightrope to walk for sure ... offering enough without giving too much away. Since I write suspense, I do cringe when a well-meaning reviewer hints at the mystery.

      Your review is lovely. Thank you again.
