Dirty Girl Romance: ☆Ultimate List of Dirty Talking MMA fighter books☆

Last week on our FACEBOOK page I asked you guys what kind of book recs you'd like to see and was given one of the most delicious suggestions there is: 

  • Dirty Talking MMA fighters

Now you don't have to ask me twice, considering this is a favorite of mine...and let me just tell you, I've read my share of some HAWT MMA books. So below is a list of just some of my favorites that I've read.

Some of these books have been published and some will be published soon, but all of them have one thing in common: they're fucking AWESOME! (If I do say so myself) I'm sure that I'm missing some, since I'm only listing the ones that I've read so far so I would love to hear some of your favorites in the comments section. Let's show these bad boys of MMA some love shall we? 

These are listed in no particular order, but I will list a series in order:

Lori Foster's SBC Fighters:

This was THE series that first introduced me to MMA. Lori is a huge fan of the sport herself, and it's evident in her writing. The woman can write the hell out of a hot as sin fighter. These are not erotic, but they are definitely verra steamy (my personal favorite being the dirty talking Drew from Back In Black)

Kele Moon's Battered Hearts & her new Untamed Hearts series

Surprisingly not many people have heard of this incredible author and her super steamy books. I have been a huge fan ever since my first book by her, Beyond Eden which was a scorching hot MMF romance. Then going through her backlist I discovered her Battered Hearts series and I've been a goner since. Her new spin-off, Untamed Hearts will be starting with The Viper, which is set to be released Aug 19. I just finished this book tonight and let me tell you, Marcus is EVERYTHING!

Cara McKenna's Willing Victim

Holy. Mother of all dirty talk and even dirtier sex. This novella is a shortie but hell does it pack a punch. And when I tell you it's hot, I mean It. Is. HOT! It is a bit on the risque end with some rape play, so it may not be for everyone. But this dirty girl devoured it. Flynn is a hot as fuck, dominant, dirty talking MMA fighter. What else do you need?

Amazon / Barnes & Noble

Some Brazen goodies:

Gina Maxwell's Fighting for Love series. 

Read it. That is all ;)

Elle Kennedy's After Hours series. 

The first book is available for pre-order and is being released on Aug 4 for only $.99. Now take a look at that title...good. Now take a look at that cover...great. The book is everything the cover and the title promise and then some ;)

Katy Evan's Real series

I'm sorry, did this even need a reason or an introduction?

Cari Quinn's Tapped Out series

What's better than a hot MMA fighter hero? Make the heroine an MMA fighter too. This book had everything; steam, angst, and so emotional it even managed to bring a tear to my cold and black little heart. Besides, it's only $.99. A serious steal for a book this length.

Vi Keeland's MMA Fighter series

I LOVE this series. HARD. Best part? Each book just gets better and better. I'm now anxiously awaiting the release of book 3, Worth Forgiving, which is being released on Aug 21.

Abbi Niles' Love to the Extreme series

While I can't say that I LOVED the first book, I did likey a lot. And with each book it just gets better and better, book 3 being the best. First 2 books are available now, with the 3rd being released on Aug 26 and available for pre-purchase now :)

Amazon / Barnes & Noble

Elizabeth Reyes' 5th Street series

This is NOT an MMA series, but Hector was a sinfully sexy boxer, so I wanted to include him in my list. This is NA but still steamy and one of my favorites by this author

JB Salsbury's Fighting series.

This series already has 3 books out, but since I've only read the first I won't include the rest. I do hear they're even better than the first, so I'll definitely be reading soon. But this one? Bad boy MMA fighter meets the virgin daughter of a Vegas pimp. Yep. You read that right

M.A. Stacie's Beneath the Surface

This series is also not an MMA series, but this book was. Bad boy millionaire by day, underground fighter by night. Oh and a whole lot of scorching hot sex ;)

Bethany Bazile's Fight for Me

As far as I know, this is a standalone, and is a verra steamy one as well ;)

Like I said, this is a list of just my favorites that I've read, and I'm sure there's many that I'm missing. I'd love to hear from you guys about any of the ones I've not included here in the comments section below. And before you jump down my throat about not including our favorite fighting bad boy, Travis, from Beautiful Disaster, there's a reason to my madness. While that book continues to be one of my New Adult favorites, I didn't think it was either steamy or filled with dirty talk. I loved the hell out of it, sure, but just didn't feel it fits the theme here ;)

ARC Review: ☆Looking for Trouble☆ by @VictoriaDahl

A good reason to be bad…

Librarian Sophie Heyer has walked the straight and narrow her entire life to make up for her mother's mistakes. But in tiny Jackson Hole, Wyoming, juicy gossip doesn't just fade away. Falling hard for the sexiest biker who's ever ridden into town would undo everything she's worked for. And to add insult to injury, the alluring stranger is none other than Alex Bishop the son of the man Sophie's mother abandoned her family for. He may be temptation on wheels, but Sophie's not looking for trouble!

Maybe Sophie's buttoned-up facade fools some, but Alex knows a naughty smile when he sees one. Despite their parents' checkered pasts, he's willing to take some risks to find out the truth about the town librarian. He figures a little fling might be just the ticket to get his mind off his own family drama. But what he finds underneath Sophie's prim demeanor might change his world in ways he never expected.

4 Stars
If she were timid, he wasn't sure he'd ever have noticed her. If she'd hidden behind her glasses and sweater, his eyes would have skipped right over her, letting her red hair and brown eyes blend into the crowd. But she wasn't hiding, she was...waiting. And Alex was perfectly willing to step up to the plate.
Sophie Heyer is a good girl with a dirty little secret. She may be the prim and proper little librarian in a small town, but underneath the modest clothes hides a bad girl that can't wait to get out.
But being the daughter of the woman that was the center of the town's scandal 25 years ago is not easy. Especially not when she looks exactly like her. After all, when your mother leaves her husband and 2 young children to run off with a married men, the rumor's won't be good. So Sophie tries her best to go against her mother's image. She's a good girl. She walks the straight line, and she's not looking to deviate from that...especially not for a bad boy.
Alex Bishop is a bad boy. Covered in tattoos, riding a motorcycle and not staying in any place too long is what he's about. He tried a relationship one, but let's face it, with his constant travel for work and everything else, he's not cut out for them. But he's not opposed to a little fun between the sheets. Especially when a certain little redhead catches his eye.

He's been away from the little town for years, and he's not happy to be back. He may not know who Sophie is...but Sophie certainly knows who he is. He just so happens to be the son of the married man her mother ran away with all those years ago. The son of the woman that hates Sophie and everything she reminds her for. Too bad that doesn't stop the scorching hot chemistry they have between them. Sophie may try to be good, but Alex makes her want to be oh so bad.

If you've never read a Victoria Dahl book, you're definitely missing out. I love her sexy combination of romance, humor, scorching sex, and endearing characters, and this book was no exception.
Need something?" she asked.
Alex groaned. "I had to crawl to the shower. Are you trying to prove your superiority? I give. Uncle."
Sophie laughed. "What'd you come out here for?"
"I don't remember," he said. She felt him growing hard against her. "Jesus, you're a witch. The kind that can raise the dead."
"Maybe you're ore of a man than you thought."
He groaned again. "I'll punish you for that later."
"No. I probably won't have the strength."
I really enjoyed this book. I'm not a fan of mousy heroines, so I was so happy to see that Sophie was hiding her true personality behind her demure mask. And Alex? Did I mention tattoos, a motorcycle and a dirty mouth? What else do you need? How bout a great story on top of everything?

Looking for Trouble was a great start to what looks to be a very promising series and I can't wait to see what else Miss Dahl has in store with the next books. I do wish that we did an epilogue or a little bit more from that ending, but it was still satisfying and fitting to the story. A very solid 4 star read.

Fans of sexy contemporary romance will really enjoy this one.

Book Blast, Excerpt & #Giveaway: ☆Once in a Blue Moon☆ by @DelilahDevlin

Beaux Rêve Coven, Book 1
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
eISBN: 978-1-61921-769-0
Format: Ebook
On Sale: July 15, 2014
When testing an enemy for weaknesses, prepare for things to get hard.

Bryn Cavanaugh and her coven like that the community they live in is isolated thanks to a storm that destroyed the bridge between them and the outside world. Now the state wants the bridge rebuilt. When the construction crew checks into the inn, Bryn begins to suspect something about the crew’s boss isn’t quite…human.

Bridges are Ethan Thorne’s thing—after all, he’s a troll—so building a simple span over a remote canal in backwater Louisiana shouldn’t be this much of a problem. When he follows the pretty little innkeeper to a midnight rendezvous, he discovers why his crew keeps running in to trouble. Bryn and her coven are casting spells in the moonlight.

As a troll, Ethan feels the sting of his low place in demon hierarchy. But finding an unprotected coven of witches in the middle of the bayou could lead to all sorts of adventure. And it’s better to keep your enemies close…

Warning: Contains a handsome troll (Hey, it can happen!) who’s skilled at building sexual tension with his hands—and several other body parts, as well—and a witch who’s determined to protect her home, but forgets to shield her heart.

“Let me do this my way.”

His way meant she would be on hands and knees. His callused palms urged her downward, arranging her knees, sinking the center of her back to tilt her bottom upward.

She didn’t mind that he treated her like a doll, that he took charge, his body blanketing her as he set the width of her hands just so. He was warm and hard and surrounding her. His cock glided on the backs of her thighs, nudged her buttocks and slid along her wet folds.

And his cock was huge. A blunt instrument. Rock solid as the rest of him.

When he was satisfied, he moved away. Her head bowed toward the floor. She hoped he’d take her. Sink his many inches inside her. However, the first flick of his tongue against her folds sent an electrical charge through her.

She must have been wound too tight. Nearly on the verge of orgasm for it to affect her so. She steeled herself against the pleasure, not wanting to disappoint him by leaving him in the dust. He teased her with more flicks to her outer folds. Then he suckled there, drawing her inside his mouth for gentle nibbles. His whiskers raked her sex and inner thighs.

Not that she minded the abrasion. He could scour her skin off so long as he found her center.  Which he did, dipping his tongue inside her and swirling. A deep groan vibrated against her sex.
When he pulled away again, she whimpered. She didn’t need foreplay, she needed the main event. But the nips he gave her fleshy ass made her jerk, escalating her sensitivity to his every touch.

Fingers parted her then swirled around her entrance. They eased her open, stretched her, one finger added at a time until she was beyond full. He spent so much time preparing her for his girth, she began to wonder if she’d underestimated just as how large he was.

The moment he prodded her with the blunt knob of his cock, she knew. He spread her folds and pressed against her, apparently gripping himself to circle her entrance and ease himself inside with precision and insistent pressure.

She’d dreamed about the way it would feel. Now pleasure was edged with worry that he wouldn’t fit. But she was wet, and more liquid seeped from inside her to coat his heavy cock. At last, he breached her entrance.

She sagged, her arms already shaking. Her body was too tight, too excited for her to slow her heart or reactions. “Ethan,” she whimpered.

The pressure relented. He held still. “Am I hurting you?” His voice sounded as though he were grinding rocks between his teeth.

“Yes,” she hissed, but she didn’t want him to stop. She wanted the pressure and the pain. “More, please.”

His laugh was choked. He gripped the notches of her hips to hold her immobile and worked himself inside in shallow, pulsing waves, in and out, deeper and deeper—until Goddess, he was touching her womb.

She felt a pinch deep inside her. A quiver of core-deep delight. This could be the moment. If only he didn’t realize he’d taken her unprotected and pulled free at the last.

Bryn sank her chest against the cushions and reached far beneath her, past his cock, to his balls. She gripped them, massaging them, sending out a flash of witch’s heat.

“Fuck, Bryn. Don’t…” He dug his fingers hard into her fleshy hips, pulled back and then slammed forward.

She released his balls, certain he wouldn’t stop until she’d achieved her goal. She’d unleashed his passion.

His hips moved faster, his cock cramming deeply, whipping back and shoving forward again. The sheer fullness made her want to shout. Her back arched and she pushed backward, trying to break his hold, but he began to move her, bringing her back as he thrust, pushing her away as he withdrew. He hammered her. Jostled her. Roughly, so deliciously, she was on the verge of exploding.

And then he began to move his hands on her skin. He reached up one hand to grab her hair and force her back to arch more, gliding another on her skin, raising gooseflesh. Her hair was lifting and prickling on the back of her neck. Static charged the air, and her eyes widened. She knew at last why he’d been so attractive, why she’d been inexorably drawn to him. Why she’d craved this union.
