Saturday's Series Spotlight: Midnight Series by NJ Cole



Midnight Caller #1
Summary:
Rebecca Summers enjoys pleasing herself with the curtains open. When a mysterious stranger calls to tell her that he is watching, fantasy becomes reality as she begins to perform for him. Following his instructions over the phone while he watches from afar, she finds herself craving more.
Oliver Durant has always been drawn to humans to exert the dominance and control his kind needs to feel alive. While secretly observing her and calling nightly, he can’t seem to get enough of Rebecca, whom he refers to as butterfly. His urges with her are stronger than the need to dominate, as he is driven to possess her in every way.
Both of their worlds are turned upside down when they finally meet and she agrees to enter into a Dominant/submissive relationship with her Midnight Caller.



From the first page to the last this book never slows down.  From Sir’s first phone call, “That was beautiful, butterfly.” to Sir’s identity reveal and the repeat of the words that started it all, the passion and excitement never lets up.  

Rebecca and Oliver bring us into a world that very few of us will ever experience.  I’m not just referring to the BDSM lifestyle or the sci-fi element either, but one of complete and utter trust in another person.  We all have those in our life that we trust but as you read the developing relationship between butterfly and Sir, a whole new level of trusting emerges.

We meet Oliver and his family and learn how his kind blended in to life on Earth. We also meet Rebecca through Oliver's eyes at first and then through her own point of view. A true read of trust and desire that evolves into love and passion. Even though “trust” is a huge factor in this story, so much so that it could almost be considered a character in itself, we also see friendship, humor, and more importantly how what started out as sex and exhibitionism evolved into passion and love.

You may not want to take this book to the beach with you, as it's hot enough by itself, but you definitely will want to read this incredible journey into the minds of both the Dominant and Submissive of this budding partnership.

Midnight Eternal #2
Summary:
In this sequel to Midnight Caller, Oliver Durant finally feels complete. With his butterfly now wearing his collar, he has invited her to share in the world of his unconventional family, as well as in the masterful scenes at his BDSM club. As their bonding rapidly progresses, butterfly feels safe and welcome with his kin and kind. The longer they are together, the more she starts to become like him, offering Oliver the hope that he will have his mate eternally.
While Rebecca Summers is new to the BDSM lifestyle, she adapts quickly and serves her Master well, pleasing and giving him everything he asks for. Additionally, she loves spending time with his family, who have given her the sense of belonging she’s yearned for since her parents’ tragic deaths. She can’t imagine denying Oliver anything, and even asks to undergo the genetic transformation to become one of his species.
Seemingly, all the pieces are in place, paving the way for their perfect life until days before the event when they are given some news that changes everything. Can these two find their happily ever after? Or does fate have other plans?


I went into this story knowing it would be an entertaining read because I've loved every word written by this author, however, I didn't really expect it to surpass Midnight Caller, but it has. In all aspects, character development, emotions explode all over the place, and of course the hotness level has completely blown the thermometer off the wall.  Now I will say that this is not for everyone, it is a Dom/sub story throughout and I know not everyone enjoys or understands the lifestyle. Also, as good as ME is by itself, you really do need to read Midnight Caller first.  Quite frankly, if you haven't read MC yet, what are you waiting for?  Oliver and Bec are definitely worth a look, or two, or three, or . . . well, you get the idea.

Midnight Caller
     I knew it was just a matter of time before I would claim this woman as mine, and what’s more, she would beg me to take her.

Midnight Eternal
     “Am I hurting you?” he whispered. I shook my head, maintaining eye contact. “Then what is it, my butterfly? What is it you need? Speak.”
     I blinked once, then slowly opened my eyes, looked directly into his, and moaned, “More. I need more.” He gave me what I wanted. Pulling all the way out, he entered me again quickly and with much more force.
     “Yes,” I groaned, my eyes rolling back in my head. “Mmmmm, yes.”

Landslide & Second Chances by NJ Cole

Landslide
Summary:
Senator Maxwell Joseph has it all—money, power, and good looks—the trifecta when it comes to attracting the ladies. He even has women willing to be tied up, spanked, and completely at his mercy, all while calling him Daddy, fulfilling his secret fantasy. On the night of his thirty-fifth birthday, Max finds a goddess waiting for him in his hotel room. She is beautiful, sexy, and very willing, yet the fruit she offers is very forbidden. Not only is she barely legal at nineteen, but she also happens to be the daughter of his best friend and political advisor. Mackenzie Wade has had a crush on the senator for years. When an overheard phone call affords her the opportunity she needs to make her fantasies a reality, Kenzie jumps at the chance, offering herself as a birthday gift. Throwing caution to the wind, Max gives in to temptation and gives them both what they have been yearning for—a night filled with ropes, floggers, and toe-curling sex. Although satiated, one night of passion isn’t enough for either of them, and they begin a clandestine affair. For Maxwell, the solid ground on which he’s built his career starts to shift as his hopes and dreams for the future begin to change. In what can only be described as a landslide, Max holds on tight to the only thing that he can—Kenzie. He goes on the ride of his life, knowing all along that in the end, he may have to make a gut-wrenching decision between the woman of his dreams and a path to the White House.


This story is sexually charged, at times kinkily and other times lovingly and then again sometimes they’re combined in ways that most of us probably only dream about.  When you throw in the dangers of political scandals and age differences, not to mention the girl in question being your best friend’s daughter, NJ has taken us on a trip that only she could tell.

Will the good Senator be able to move on after sampling his birthday gift? Or will he find himself craving more and more?
Leaning down, I kissed her lips softly. Our first kiss. It wasn’t driven by sexual
need; we had both been satiated enough. No, this kiss was more. It was a way of
expressing our thanks for giving each other what we needed. It was soft and sweet, long
and deep.
When we finally broke apart, I decided I was going to do something I had never
done with any of the girls in the past. I was planning to ask her if she would like to stay
the night. Before I could say anything, though, she spoke.
“Thank you, Senator Joseph,” she said, getting out of the bed. “I really hope that
you enjoyed your present.”   
Will Mackenzie be able to put her childhood crush behind her after finally having a taste?  Or will she never get enough?
Before he could say a word, I left his room and slipped out the back of the house.
I had considered calling Mark, who’d asked me to go to a party with him, but in the end, I didn’t.
I didn’t blame Senator Joseph, but I couldn’t handle the rejection again. Going
back to my original plan from the Fourth of July, I vowed that if he wanted me, he’d have
to be the one to initiate our next encounter.
There are so many amazing moments in this story, erotic, romantic, and dramatic.  I have to say one of my more favorable and memorable quotes from the book is from the inner monologue of Senator Joseph regarding a third party wrench trying to throw herself into the fine tuned contraption we call Love.
Everyone could see what was under her dress—with what little of it there was. It was
 strapless, hot pink, and barely covered her ass. Honestly, it looked like a bottle of
 Pepto Bismol threw up on a strip of material. Her breasts, which were clearly fake,
 were pressed up and together, and I wasn’t sure how her nipples weren’t showing.
A truly sexy read, political possibilities, and romantic journey. It sucked me in and I just couldn't let it go!!

Second Chances
Summary:
Calla Moretti married her college sweetheart, Bill. Married life was great at first, but as his career had her dropping out of college and moving away from her family and friends, Calla struggled with her role as a wife and homemaker. Stress, due to infertility and Bill’s affairs, had the marriage on the brink of failure.
When she drives home in the middle of a thunderstorm and spots first a broken down motorcycle, then the sexy rider, she decides to take a chance and offer him assistance. Realizing fate brought her together with a man who could give her the one thing her husband couldn’t—a baby—Calla decides to take a chance.
One romantic night, one big lie, will it save her marriage or fill her heart with more emptiness? Will this be the answer to her prayers? In life, are there truly second chances?


We follow Calla who really wants to have a child and thinks that doing so could be able to save her marriage to the local Chief of Police Bill.  Will fate give her desperation the kick in the right direction to save her marriage or save herself?

The characters grab hold of your hearts and you just can’t help but cheer for them and maybe  jeer for a certain policeman.  You want to see them get what they deserve, what life has so far kept just out of reach.

It's pretty easy to see what the end result for Calla will be but for me it was more fun seeing how she got there not just where.

Landslide
There were a million reasons I shouldn’t do this. She was barely legal. She was the daughter of my top advisor...and best friend. I wasn’t prepared. We didn’t have any sort of contract. I had no clue what her limits were. It just seemed wrong, yet all of that flew out the window when she looked up at me and licked her lips.

Second Chances
Last night was wonderful, but I can’t stay. I’m sorry.~ C

Author Bio:
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Sottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.
Although, she never sought out a writing career, her desire for the written word grew the more she read. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn. The Guardians of Scotland series continues this winter with Highland Storm.
Now, Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Living in paradise, being a stay at home, and to be able to share her stories has been a blessing.

Olivia is a newbie to the industry, but she hasn’t stopped writing since she found her literary voice all those years ago. Jaded Hearts, her first published novel, mixes her big personality, with a sexy yet humorous tone.

LeTeisha Newton is the author of a plethora of novels ranging from hot Interracial Erotica, Paranormal biters, Fantasy, and Urban Fantasy genres. She’s known for her extensive knowledge of shifter cultures, even outside of the generic werewolves and vampires, crazy world-building, and making shapeshifters feel like they are living right next door. That has led to her being dubbed the Shifter Queen. Some of her series include the best-selling Claimed and Taken Series.
