Good Lord. Carnal Ecstasy is HOT! When bad boy, Dallon sets his eyes on sweet Carrie, he finds that he can’t stop thinking about her. What’s not to like? She’s got the curves and the innocence and Dallon finds Carrie’s purity intriguing.

The two have never been more different. Dallon is a sexy bad boy bartender and Carrie is a sweet and naive woman who has lived a sheltered life. But when Carrie quits her job and comes to the bar seeking Dallon out, Dallon can’t fight the temptation of turning this sweet girl into something naughty. When Carrie tries to break out of her sheltered dome and find herself, Dallon is right there beside her every step of the way ,teaching her things she wouldn’t have learned on her own.

I thought there was a very good mix of romance and drama. I would have liked to see Carrie stand up to her parents in a more assertive way, but that would be a bit out of character for her. Although Vinter is still my man, I thought Dallon was pure sex in its most potent form. And ladies, watch out because Ms. Matthews definitely steams things up in this one.

Be warned, readers. What Dallon does with common objects in this one is definitely illegal!! Sexual appeal that potent is a crime! But I guess, rules are meant to be broken, right?

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
