Review – Bait by Jade West


Review graphic

Bait is a must read!

Dark and twisted. There was no putting this down once I started. Jade has written some of the dirtiest, kinkiest books I have ever read. But with this story, she has truly shown some incredible talent. Bait had me turned around, flabbergasted and craving more with each turn of the page. Leo and Abigail’s tale is not one for the faint of heart. This book will either draw you in completely or have you running as far away as possible. I chose to fall in with my mind and heart wide open, both feet totally jumping in for one of the best reads of the year.

Leo and Abigail both have a past filled with horrible losses. Both have an empty place in their hearts that can only seem to be filled by fulfilling their darkest needs. One desires to be prey. The other to be the predator. Abigail ran from the pain of her past but has always dreamed that she is being chased by the dark monster, one who uses her for his own dark desires once she is caught. Abigail believes that until she has the wish fulfilled she can’t move forward and sets a plan in motion to make her nightmare a reality. Leo, the Phoenix, is a single father with a child that refuses to speak after the loss of his mother, a brother who is a thorn in his side and a demon inside him. He is the dark monster. A past filled with angry unanswered questions has made him so. A chance meeting online with Abigail will change the course of his life in ways that he never dreamed.

Leo is big, tatted… just a beautiful man wanting to take care of his son, his sister and his business. He’s never been able to let go of the past, and he has the scars on the outside to prove it. Abigail is fragile and torn a part after her image of love and family was scattered into a million pieces. Her heart and mind have been damaged. I saw Abigail trying to get through the day, faking her way through her life until she could finally feel something. The emotions between these two are so real, so heartbreakingly close to the surface. Their story, their coming together so enthralled and captured me.

This is a fantasy unlike any that I have read in a very long time. It was brilliantly written, breathtaking and exciting. There was no staying away from this story. I had to see it through to the end. This was Jade West at her best. I was blindsided by how much I enjoyed this suspenseful, heart pounding tale of two people and their desire to find peace in the chaos, fulfillment in the emptiness of their pain and resolution so that they could move forward together. An amazingly powerful read! Absolutely stunning!

Six Dark Love Stars!




A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.

Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

Review – After Our Kiss by Nora Flite



After Our Kiss by Nora Flite

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The giddy delight I get when I meet a new or new-to-me author’s words is BOOKWORM BLISS! That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I just popped my Nora Flite book cherry that was more of an explosion because HOLY ADRENALINE-FILLED ADVENTURE!!! After Our Kiss is HAUNTING and HEART-POUNDING, a hard-fought love story that will render you BREATHLESS!

The After Our Kiss Prologue broke my heart, sending it and me into a black hole in a story that sank into my soul from the start. As a mother, I was petrified. As a reader, I was utterly enthralled. As a romantic, I was hopeful.

This the tale of a man labeled a monster and a kidnapped girl who are thrown together, perhaps by fate, as they battle good and evil while wading through the dark to see the light. 

I sensed his self-hatred. I recognized it because I’d worn the same uniform for years.

I broke for both a boy and girl robbed of a childhood….robbed of a family…robbed of innocence. 

If I did end up in Hell, at least I’d find him there.

Insanely inked and muscular, hot, raw, caring, and devoted, Conway is a fusion of sinner and savior. He is all alpha. Intense and intoxicating, Conway is a force that filters dark with the light. 

“You’re a monster.”

“Yes,” he said calmly. “I know.”

I wanted to loathe Conway, but I could not help but love this mixed-up man.

A collision of chemistry cements with a kiss between the an abductor and his abducted. A kiss that says what words can’t. A kiss of hope and heart. A kiss I felt slice through me.


Conway made me BURN!!! A fire lit inside of me by his smoldering kisses and words while this broken boy-inside-a-man’s heart called to me. This fallen alpha is possessive and passionate, and oh did Conway POSSESS me!!! I was owned by this devastatingly beautiful and broken hero. I WAS HIS!!!

“Nothing changes! Nothing can change. Do you get that?”

“It’s too late.”

After our kiss, everything had changed.

Conway may be Georgia’s worst nightmare or her biggest salvation. A wolf disguised in sheep’s clothing or a saint to set her free. 

“You’re going to ruin me.”

From the very first page, After Our Kiss is a RIVETING RUSH OF A RAW READ! The INTENSITY cuts like a knife! This story split me wide open, tearing my heart apart and shattering my soul, where my emotions bled everywhere. The push and the pull built me up and then broke me again and again. Heartbreak … hope … happiness rotated like a Russian roulette wheel. The angst bled over the pages, bleeding over me, and I LOVED every tortuous and tender minute! I only wish that Georgia and Conways’ story was a longer as I needed more background before they met and a longer ending as it was abrupt with the closing coming too soon.

After Our Kiss PUSHES EVERY EMOTION TO THE EDGE in a dark roller coaster of a romance that soars straight to the heart. Scintillating and smoldering, After Our Kiss is the SWEETEST TORTURE!!!Hot, heady, haunting, and hopeful, you must get touched by After Our Kiss. This kiss of a romance leaves its mark everywhere.

“If you searched every star in the sky, you couldn’t find one more glorious than you. Not if you looked for a thousand years.”

💋💋💋💋 deliciously dark kisses

I was thirteen when I was kidnapped.

Fourteen when he helped me escape.

Twenty-three before I ever saw him again.

His face is all over the news: he’s a wanted man, now. Maybe my memory played tricks on me… but he looks so different. The boy who saved me years ago had a shy smile and dark, soulful eyes full of secrets.

This man has a hard jaw and a harder mouth. Lips that could never whisper sweet promises.

I knew him as a hero—my savior. I refuse to believe he could become a villain.

Not him.

Then he abducts me, proving me wrong.

He tells me he’s going to take me apart and put me back together again. Make me what he needs me to be: a plaything for a monster.

It’s the fate I escaped when I was fourteen. And that’s when I finally understand.

He was never my hero.

He’s the man who’s going to break me.

Review – Clandestine by Ava Harrison 

Clandestine by Ava Harrison 

“In my weakness, I find my strength.” – Olivia, Clandestine by Ava Harrison


Five hours it’s taken me to write this review. Five hours of thoughts, words & emotions that are wildly thrashing around inside me. I always find it a struggle to review the books that knock me off my feet and affect me deeply. Clandestine by Ava Harrison did just that. I was not expecting this book to role the way it did. I was not expecting this book to hit me as deep as it did. I am a whirlwind of EMOTIONS! I’m just OVERWHELMED. 

Clandestine is hands down Ava’s best book yet. This is not a happy dancing rom-com and I wasn’t expecting it to be. With Ava you always know you will get your soul smashed and your heart broken, in the best way possible of course, but there was something about Ava’s writing in Clandestine that just draws you in and consumes you. I don’t think I’ve felt so connected to a female character in a long time! And I am SO IN LOVE with this male character that I feel like he’s printed on my marrow. 

Olivia made my heart ache. The way Ava wrote her was sublime. Every woman will relate to Olivia in some way. Every woman will understand her, even if it’s just one part of her, she will connect with you somehow. All of her feelings and emotions are REAL. And they hit deep.

Spencer is a beast! He’s raw and powerful, cocky and ambitious, sexy and hella sinful, but he too is broken. Without even realising I fell hard for this hero super quickly. His sinful, swoony ways made it easy and as the book progressed I just couldn’t help myself. 

But together they are intense, passionate and HOT. A raging inferno. Ava NAILS their connection from the very first time they meet. 

Character aside, Ava delivers a hard hitting, emotional story that written so precisely. Ava handled all the topics this story touches on with dedication and care. The raw, intensity of Ava’s words made this already beautiful novel even more so. Clandestine is forever embedded in my heart. 

5 captivating, all consuming stars.

One night. 

No names.

No commitment.

That was our agreement.

But Spencer Lancaster was addictive.

And I was high.

High off his taste, starved for his kiss, and desperate for his touch.

So when he asked me to stay, to enjoy his company for more nights than I knew I should, I wasn’t in the right mind to say no.

Everything was perfect. A dream come true.

But half a world away there were secrets.



All of the truths that could tear us apart.




Review – Auctioned To The Billionaire by Kira Bloom

Auctioned Billionaire Ecover

Review graphic

What words to use to describe Jackson Cade? Bossy, arrogant… a total jerk. Demanding, foul mouthed and brutally honest. I absolutely loved him! With a capital L!

Felicity York dearly loves her father and the restaurant that he started with his late wife. It is home to her and the people that work for her father depend on them to survive. She will do whatever it takes to save the struggling business, even go groveling to the man that holds her father’s $20,000 debt – Jackson Cade. No matter how she tries to negotiate with the bullheaded pig of a man, he won’t budge and plans to call the debt in. Jackson can’t deny the attraction that he feels for Flick but he has to stick to his guns and run the business better than his filandering father ever could. That means he doesn’t let things slide because of friendship.

My, my, my…. how things can change when Mr. Cade discovers Flick doing what she has to to save her father’s business. One auction and one deal later, thirty days in Mr. Cade’s company will definitely be a challenge and a game changer for Felicity as well.

Jackson Cade is… well, wow. Totally alpha, commanding and dirty. He’s absolutely divine! Sweet when I least expected him to be. The man is as passionate about his business as he is about Felicity. She’s his – no one else’s – and he sets out to make her understand this. Flick is as brave as she is beautiful. Selfless and loyal to a fault with an indepedent streak a mile wide. I admired her strength and her ability to stand up for herself and what she wanted. She is such a positive influence on Jackson, slowly changing the hardcore businessman into someone that she not only loves but likes. These two together are sinful, steamy and sultry! Their story made me breathless. More than once I sat back from my kindle and if I smoked, I would have grabbed a lighter and an ashtray.

This was one FANTASTIC debut from Kira Bloom! Auctioned is amazingly written and grabbed me from the beginning. The writing duo have created such great chemistry in this book and strong characters that I wanted to know. When I finished I wanted more from Jackson, Flick and the people around them. I’m excited to see what this duo has next up their sleeve. Wonderful read that I highly recommend!

Five VBay Stars!


Auctioned Billionaire GQ teaser


I’ve got one month to come up with enough to help my impulsive father pay off his debt to the Cades.
Twenty thousand dollars in thirty days.
My roommate has a plan—scratch that, she’s already followed through with her plan.
Auction off my V-card.
It’s a tale as old as time, but there’s just one problem: Jackson Cade just placed the winning bid … of 200,000 dollars.
And there are no refunds.

The moment I saw her on that site, she was mine.
The second she laid eyes on me and realized who I was, she hated me.
Felicity should thank me—I’ve just settled her father’s debt and fucked myself ten times over because I want her.
She claims she’ll never sell out.
She already has.
She asks why I’d pay so much, but it’s fucking obvious.
I wanted to be her first.
She just doesn’t realize I’ll be her last.

Review – Mr. Big by Delancey Stewart

Mr. Big by Delancey Stewart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first met Mr. Big, I thought it would be the typical super sexy story of an employee-boss romance. I was wrong…totally wrong. Delancey Stewart wrote SO MUCH MORE! Mr. Big is a love story of TRAGEDY and TENACITY, FEELS and FATE, and DREAMS and DESTINY. This romance wholeheartedly CAPTIVATED ME, calling to my heart and soul, CONSUMING ME from beginning to end. Mr. Big is a fierce fusion of smolder, sweetness, sass, sadness, strength, and swoon.

The hot and heartbreaking hero, Oliver Cody, is one you’ll both love and hate. Arrogant, brooding, kind, and temperamental, Oliver is a high-profile sports company CEO. This talented executive is battling demons in and out of the office. Oliver is one walking storm, a mix of dark and light.

Until light eclipsed his shade known as beautiful Holland O’Dell, a name and woman as stunning as the country….

Holland O’Dell was the first spot of color I’d seen in two months.

Beautiful Holland is out to prove she has what it takes to be a smart and powerful woman in a typical man’s world of sports. Though part of her plans don’t involve falling for her hot boss. I loved this heroine, admiring her drive and resilience.

“You saw me.” He stares into my eyes for a second. “Even when you hated me, you saw me.”


I MELTED from these sad and swoon-filled words where I FELT ALL THE FEELS!


This kiss wasn’t gentle and soft, it didn’t ask for permission. It felt like he was staking a claim, as if he sought to possess me.


This kiss POSSESSED ME, blazing and burning, lighting me on fire. I felt the passion and promise permeate the pages.

“No one ever chose me.” Her eyes shut and the tears squeezed past her lashes.

“I do,” I whispered into her hair. “I choose you.”

The excitement had me ON EDGE, biting my nails in both angst and anticipation. The push and pull was HEADY, a force that made my head spin. The torment was the perfect mix of sweet and sexy. The sexual tension lit me on fire. I wanted to shove this heroine and hero together so many times!

ENCHANTING and EMOTIONALLY-CHARGED, Mr. Big makes your head spin and soul soar in one heart-pounding whirlwind of an employee-boss romance. You’ll adore the heroine, and both love and loathe the hero in one spellbinding story of surprises. A slow burn of a romance, Mr. Big is PASSION MEETS PROMISE, a push-and-pull of angst-ridden goodness. Mr. Big is BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN, a tale that can’t help but twist around your heart.

“Sometimes we’re ready for things when we don’t think we are.”

💋💋💋💋 big and beautifully broken kisses

View all my reviews

Once upon a time, I had everything: money, power, a multimillion-dollar company, a loving family. Well, at least I thought I had everything. Then my parents died, and I found out my whole life was based on a lie. That’s pretty much the moment when I went numb. Told the world to f*** off and went on a bender of epic proportion, just to see how far I could fall before I hit rock-bottom.

Now I’m back and all I want in this world is my morning—okay, afternoon—coffee. Then one of my employees has the nerve to call me out for cutting the line at the coffeehouse at the company I own. Sure, I’m a little scruffier than usual, but come on, bitching out the CEO? Not a smart career move. Just who does this smart-mouthed ball-buster think she is? And more important, what do I have to do to get her number?

Holland O’Dell may be uptight, but I wouldn’t mind taking her back to my place and ripping off that business-casual blouse/skirt combo and burying myself in her curves. She pushes my buttons, but at least I’m feeling something. And whatever it is, I won’t stop until I get more.

Jonah cannot believe it when he sees Gideon catering the synagogue event. He tries to get Gideon’s attention.  Gideon does everything in his power to break down his walls until he let’s him in






NARRATOR: Derrick McClain


After 10 years away from home, bad boy caterer Gideon Marks has a lot to prove. Getting the holiday catering job at his childhood synagogue is the first step in demonstrating to everyone he didn’t turn out to be the failure they predicted. What he doesn’t count on is Rabbi Jonah Fine, his high school nemesis and secret crush, stirring up old feelings Gideon thought long gone and secrets he’s buried deep for years.

An unexpectedly passionate encounter shocks Gideon, but he pushes Jonah away, convinced he isn’t good enough to be in a relationship and would never be accepted by Jonah’s father. But Jonah hangs tough – he won’t allow Gideon to hide or run away from life again. And when it comes to love, Gideon learns the most important lessons aren’t always taught in school

“How did you know where to find me?”

“I didn’t. But when I went to your apartment and discovered you weren’t home, I thought to myself, ‘Where would a chef be early on Saturday morning?’”

Pleased he’d thought so carefully about me, I bit my lip to keep from smiling, then muttered with my head down, “Lucky guess on your part.”

“I’d like to think so,” said Jonah, his voice as soft as the breeze. My eyes met his, the hurt from our last conversation shimmering bright in their depths, causing a throb within me of a longing I’d never known existed. “Or maybe it was fate.”

He smiled then plucked the paper bag of rugelach out of my clutches, rummaged through it until he found an apricot one, and bit off half.

“Well, if you’re that hungry, I guess you can come home with me, and I’ll make you an omelet,” I grumbled but couldn’t stop the small grin tugging at my lips. “But I planned on browsing a bit more through the market first.”

“I’d like that.” Jonah walked beside me, and we meandered past the stands piled high with colorful peppers and squash. We strolled in silence, but every few steps I’d sneak a glance at him, expecting Jonah to speak. Instead he remained irritatingly, cheerfully silent.

I sampled some hot mulled cider and licked my lips. Spending so much time with Jonah gave me new insight. I’d always thought him superior and judgmental; perhaps I had been wrong in my assessment. He captivated me with the humor in his speech, warmth in his smile, and that unmistakable flare of desire in his eyes. Goddamn it, I wanted him.

I extended the paper cup. “Do you want a sip?” Its heady cinnamon scent remained one of my most favorite things about the fall season. To my shock, instead of answering me, he bent down and kissed me on my lips, lapping at their sticky sweetness. He stepped back, but I put a restraining hand on his wrist.

“What’s going on? Why are you really here?”

The honesty in Jonah’s face took my breath away.

“Do you really have to ask, after the last time?”

My body refused to listen to the war inside my head, kindling a deep need I couldn’t understand. I took a step forward, but unlike me, Jonah didn’t retreat. He stood firm, and I stood close enough to almost touch. Close enough to smell him.

“I’m not who you want; can’t you see that?”

“You don’t have any idea what I see when I look at you, Gideon.”

I wanted to yell back at him, No, you have no idea who I am, but I couldn’t bring myself to ruin the moment. I had no clue who Jonah thought I was, but I wanted to be that man if only to be able to have him always look at me like this. Like I was special. Like I was his. The sun beat hot upon my shoulders, and I held his gaze while contentment poured over me like a warm summer rain.

Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.

But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back.

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Review – Nate by Celia Aaron

Nate Ebook Cover

Review graphic

Hot! This book is a MUST READ!

First the first page to the last sentence, NATE had me by the throat and would not let me go. I turned the pages of this naughty little read until there were no more words. One incredibly alpha mafia boss, the young girl that he saved and the attraction that should be off limits between them. Sounds like a story you’ve read a million times, yes? Don’t judge this man and this story by other cliches. If I had, I would have missed out on one ridiciously incredible read!

Nate Franco is not your regular hero. He’s cold blooded, commanding and at times, just plain scary. He’s loyal to men under his rule. They are his family and the underground syndicate of Philadelphia is his to rule as he sees fit. When he saved a young girl who was almost killed in a hit on her family, he took on another role – protector and hero to Sabrina. She becomes his ward and he does what he must to keep her safe from those who would see her dead. He never planned for Sabrina to go from that scared thirteen year old girl to a beautiful young woman of eighteen with her own plans and ideas of what she wants for her life.

And Sabrina wants Nate.

These two have amazing off the wall chemistry. From the moment he sets eyes on Sabrina, the attraction overwhelms Nate. She’s wise beyond her years. Smart and determined to have everything. It was hard not to admire her and I found myself cheering her on in her quest to get her man. Still Nate’s life is a dark one, filled with underhanded schemes, illegal activities and death. No matter how much he wants Sabrina away from his business, Sabrina has her mind made up. She wants Nate and everything that being his entails.

Oh, this was a wonderful change of pace for me and my first read from Celia. It most definitely will not be my last! The story was flawlessly written, flowed beautifully and kept me happy all the way through. Nate and Sabrina were just amazing together, and after a few chapters it didn’t remotely matter that Sabrina was very much younger than Nate. I very much hope that brothers Peter and David as well as Irish intern Angus get to tell their stories soon! The secondary characters made this book and had me wanting more pages, more history, just more!

Fantastic, Celia! You just got yourself a new fan!

Five Dark Protector Stars!


Nate Teaser 1


I rescued Sabrina from a mafia bloodbath when she was thirteen. Doing right by her became a priority for me, even while I was busy as the new head of the Philly syndicate. I sent her to the best boarding schools and kept her as far away from the life as possible. It worked perfectly. Until she turned 18. Until she came home. Until I realized that the timid girl was gone and in her place lived a smart mouth, a wicked imagination, and a body that demanded my attention. Who am I? I’m F*cked. Nice to meet you.

Review – Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes you can’t merely read a book; you have to live it. I LIVED THROUGH Rebel by Rebecca Yarros. The last story in the phenomenal Renegades trio, Rebel is a romance you live…breath…feel…experience. Oh did I experience everything! I FELT Rebel race through me…every single word!

Rebel is a HEADY HIGH, one I FELT the moment I began reading. This book made me BREATHLESS!!!There is no other way to read this stirring story except to do a deep dive, so I sank in until I could only feel the words. I plunged ALL THE WAY INTO this thrilling and tender tale, and loved every minute!

I’ve never been a toe-in-the-water kind of girl. I was a dive-headfirst-and-see-what’s-at-the-bottom girl.

I lived and breathed these characters that came to life before my eyes.

Bold, brave, beautiful, and badass to the bone, Penna may be my favorite heroine yet! Rebel is her name and it fits her like a glove! Penna holds her own in extreme sports, rivaling men in sport, smarts, and sass. Rebel has lady balls the size of balloons and I bowed to her! She gives as good as she gets and then some! I ADORED and ADMIRED this heroine so much!

I’ve never given a shit about rules. They called me Rebel for a reason.

I was IN AWE of everything Rebel! She was my idol!

I don’t go soft and doe-eyed for boys because I worked too damn hard to get where I am to be a piece of ass for some guy on the circuit.

Rebel has never had a man catch her eye until she meets gorgeous Cruz in Vegas one night where their attraction was unstoppable. Cruz is a gorgeous alpha and the perfect man fiery enough to capture this rebel gal, Penna. They would be perfect together if they weren’t teacher and student…off limits in every way.

“You’re everything I can’t have. Don’t you get that?”

The sexual tension is high. The pull is too palpable, too strong to ignore. I loved this most delicious angst!

If all I got was this one time to kiss him, to feel like he was mine, then I was taking advantage off every second. I kissed him back with everything I had.

That kiss was hot…on fire! It spoke so many words. That kiss was possibly the last. That kiss was EVERYTHING!

She was a magnet and I was a compass, my north facing wherever she moved to.

I MELTED from these oh-so-romantic words. I SWOONED so hard! Sweet and sensual are a lethal combination, one that hit straight to my core.

I thought Pax’s book was IT for me in this series until I met Rebel. Rebel was my KRYPTONITE, my ADRENALINE, my EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION, my EVERYTHING!

Maybe it’s because it was the last book, the last Renegades romance.

Maybe it’s because the Renegades, this family, felt like my family too.

Maybe it’s because of Rebel, truly a badass heroine among the best of the best!

Maybe it’s because the Renegades made me LIVE, leaping off cliffs into the unknown in a story and series that felt like a HUGE HIGH that never left.

Maybe its because that as I lived through this story, I felt so much too.

No…not maybe at all…but YES!!! YES to all of these and more! An all-consuming, adrenaline-filled adventure meets forbidden romance, Rebel hits the heart and slays the soul. Hot, heart-pounding, heady, and utterly hypnotizing, Rebel is the highest of highs meets the lowest of lows. Rebecca Yarros has outdone herself in a riveting ex-soldier/ teacher and an extreme sports superstar/student romance that ROCKED MY WORLD!!!

Rebel is a RUSH OF FEELS! Pulse-pounding meets passion in one sensual super star of a story! I felt this tale take me. I felt the angst tug at my heart, pulling me under. I felt the bitter sting of rejection. I felt heartbreak. I felt hope. I felt happiness. I FELT EVERYTHING!!!

We’d always been a family—able to conquer every fear, land every trick, and generally do the impossible when we were together.

I’m not ready to release the Renegades, these extreme sports daredevils who were my family. I am sad to say goodbye. If I were Rebel, I’d demand that Rebecca Yarros give us more Renegades because I’ll never get enough of this high. This free-fall of feels felt real, and I’m not done falling and feeling.

“That’s why you have me—to show you the parts of yourself that you can no longer see.”

She’ll defy his every expectation.

She’s Penna Carstairs.

The Renegade they call Rebel.

FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year.

There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken,

No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.

She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas.

The woman I illegally BASE jumped for.

The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with.

But now I’m screwed.

Or rather…not screwed.

Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again.

I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus,

And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.

Review – Hate to Love You by Tijan


Hate to Love You by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know you’ve read a book that rocked your world when you don’t want it to end. Tijan Meyer writes such raw and riveting stories that FEEL SO REAL, and I am always left wanting…NEEDING MORE. Hate to Love You is a HEADY HIGH, an edge-of-your-seat, emotionally-entwined, delicious drama-infused love story! This tale HITS DEEP with a few punches—touchy situations you may not see coming but ones that will TOUCH YOU and ones you will FEEL! Heartfelt and hypnotizing, Hate to Love You is a romance you’ll feel while reading, and oh did I feel Tijan’s words take hold of me!

Hate to Love You INTOXICATED ME where I was fully immersed into the college world. These charismatic characters quickly became my classmates and my friends. My college days flashed before my eyes as I was taken back to a care-free time of university life with classes, books, frat parties, and young love. I lived and breathed this book as Hate to Love You became me.

Beautiful and badass Kennedy Clarke was burned in the past but is ready for a fresh start in college, hoping to learn from her high school mistakes and avoid all the hot boys and all the drama. Sarcastic, smart, and sassy, Kennedy is my spirit animal. She marches to the beat of her own drum and is a leader rather than a follower. I ADORED and ADMIRED this heroine so much!

It was better to start swinging first then to get hit by someone else.

College Quarterback, Shay Coleman, is a HOT with a HUGE HEART! It was INSTA-LOVE! Shay is a Viking God who OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME! I could not get enough of this perfect man! 

“That’s called charisma and perhaps map animal sexiness. It oozes out, and you are affected…I know what’s good, Clarke, and it’s definitely me.”

When Kennedy and Shay connect in class, it’s one CHEMISTRY-FILLED COLLISION! This hero and heroine’s chemistry is intense and insane. The sexual tension is off-the-charts! 

“We hate each other. Fine. But not right now.”

His lips nipped at mine. I felt them smile as he murmured,

“I don’t hate you right now at all.”


I MELTED at words that are PURE MAGIC, ones that pulled me in deep! 

His lips met mine, and he whispered against them, “I don’t play fair. Ever.”

Hate to Love You rains with kisses…so many sweet and sexy kisses between a heroine who has lost faith in men and a hero who makes her believe again. These kisses said so much! I loved Kennedy and Shay together!

Oh. My. SWOON! My head was full of swoony sensations and so much goodness! 

“No thinking. Just . . .” He bent down, his lips over mine. “Feeling this.”

I felt Hate to Love You PENETRATE ME! The passion…the promise…I FELT EVERY WORD I READ! The push and the pull was my DRUG that I both hated and loved. Hate to Love You twists and turns around the heart in a romance roller coaster of feels, and I FELT IT ALL!

Words reached inside and grabbed my heart hard, tugging it the whole way where it stayed stuck in this story. Hate to Love You broke me with a heavy hit to my heart where my tears bled onto the pages. Happy tears. Heartbreaking tears. Hopeful tears. In a HEART-WRENCHING and HEARTWARMING romance, Hate to Love You made my heart both shatter and soar.

Hate to Love You is a SLOW BURN of a romance that oozes smolder, sweetness, and strength. Kennedy and Shays’ love is hard-fought love at its best, and their story seems far from over. As always, Tijan Meyer has WOWED ME and left me panting for more! I did not want Hate to Love You to end, this most delicious of dramas meets potent and passionate romance. I fell in love with this soul-searing story over and over again, one where the feels remain long after the last page. 

“You can let me in.”

“You’re in. You’re so far in that I don’t know what I’d do if I lost you.”

“Then I’m in, and you’re in, too.”

💋💋💋💋💋 sweet and smoldering ‘hate to love’ kisses

Rule #1: No hot guys.

It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.

No one would know me at college.

Rule #2: No drama.

I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.

Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.



And all because of Shay Coleman.

Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .

. . . and he was about to break all my rules.

Review – Broken by JL Drake 

6 stars.  🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
JL Drake has just consumed my whole world with this series. I am thanking God that I can move on right away to the next book because this is one of those drop EVERYTHING and read straight through  series. 
 This author caught my attention  when I read her book Trigger.  I knew then that she took up a resident spot on my must read list.  As much as I loved that book,  this one has grabbed  my heart and mind and is holding them captive. 
I’m not going to write about anything that goes on in the story because you will be kept on your toes throughout and I wouldn’t dare ruin that go anyone. All I can say is this is a 6 star must read,  and the good part is you can finish the series because it’s already complete. 
Excuse me while I enjoy an extreme book hangover.

My name is Savannah Miller.

My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known. 

I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.

Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:

One—Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…
Two—Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week. 

I chose option one. 

As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.

This is my story…

When she’s not writing, she loves to spend time with her family, travelling or just enjoying a night at home. One thing you might notice in her books is her love for the four seasons. Growing up on the east coast of Canada the change in the seasons is in her blood and is often mentioned in her writing. 

An avid reader of James Patterson, J.L. Drake has often found herself inspired by his many stories of mystery and intrigue. 

She hopes you will enjoy her stories as much as she has enjoyed writing them.
