Review – Racer by Katy Evans

Racer by Katy Evans

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

You’ve got to be closer to the edge than ever to win. That means sometimes you go over the edge, and I don’t mean driving, either.
~Dale Earnhardt

When I turned the last page of Legend, I bawled my eyes out. Tears of sorrow fell for this top 2016 read and the end of the all-time favorite Real series. Then the incredible Katy Evans blessed readers with another book and Racer was born. Oh did Racer stay true to the beloved Real series. I still can’t get over this BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL BOOK!!!

Here I sit, days after reading the final story in Katy Evans’ riveting Real series, SO SMITTEN, still flying from the FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE called Racer.  Racer did not even have to hijack my heart; I willingly surrendered it to this SPELLBINDING STORY. This love story lifted me up to Cloud Nine where I floated on air in the best book haze, still SWOONING long after the last page. My heart continues to spin around the track, still stuck in this story that STOLE EVERY PART OF ME. Racer is POTENT PASSION mixed with COMBUSTIBLE CHEMISTRY spiked with ADDICTING ADRENALINE woven with FOREVER LOVE. I didn’t have to read this story to already know that I would love it…love him, Remy’s boy, Racer. I COULDN’T LOVE RACER ENOUGH!!!

From the minute I dove into this book, Racer was my DRUG and I couldn’t get enough of this FIX. This is a tale that twists around you where you’re fully immersed and HIGHLY INTOXICATED. This romance is a HOT, HEADY, and HEARTFELT HIT STRAIGHT TO THE CORE. I DEVOURED this tale like a hungry lioness, eating every page alive. Every page of Racer made me FEEL ALIVE. Every page buzzes with energy. Every page burns with smoldering heat. Every page combusts with chemistry. Every page is everything. Racer is EVERYTHING!!!

The moment I got that pedal, I’m alive … drunk with it.

Katy Evans paints a vivid picture of Racer, transporting the reader to the Formula One track, where the heart will race, feeling right along with these characters who are family. This romance is so RAW that Racer felt REAL. I lived and breathed these characters that came to life before my eyes.

Racer, oh Racer, where do I start?!? This racing god is fire-hot and fearless. Racer is so sexy … so stunning … so alpha … so male … so WOW!!! The gorgeous son of Remy with dark hair and sea-blue eyes channels his father but Racer shines bright in his own spotlight. I was helpless to his spell. It was INSTANT LOVE! Racer had my heart from the start. Racer owned every ounce of me. This man is PURE PERFECTION!

A beautiful gal crashes into Racer’s life, an addiction he never saw coming. 

I’m Racer Tate and this girl is mine.

I could not get enough of this delicious man!!! Racer exudes sex and smolder but sweetness too. I MELTED at his touch through his dominant words.

Lana, the honey-blonde beauty, oh how I ADORED HER. She grew up around men and is as bold and brilliantly as she is beautiful. I admired this heroine’s drive, determination, and devotion to her family. Lana is powerless to stop the force named Racer.

“Do you do that on purpose?”


“Stare at my like that.”

He stares at me like a predator—quiet. Waiting.

Racer is the predator and Lana’s the prey. GAH. I the prey too. 

I’m trapped—helplessly and totally—in Racer Tate’s irresistible fire.

Racer and Lana are the perfect match! Their chemistry is ELECTRIC, a strong force felt through the pages. 

“I want to lick you up head to toe until I’ve tasted every inch of you, and then I want to do it again.”

Oh. My. HOT!!! Racer’s hot mouth heated me, blazing me where my body was on fire. My thighs could not help but clench. Racer’s sinfully sexy spell bound me to him where I was helpless to let go. I couldn’t SOAK IN THESE SEDUCTIVE WORDS enough.

Racer and Lana are MAGICAL together, and I was mesmerized by this magnetic couple. Their relationship is full of fire fueled by love. I LOVED them both so much! 

Can you love someone so hard that every part of you feels it?

I FELT these words clutch me … caress me … captivate me … CONSUME me! I felt this story course through me. I felt the tears as the story struck my soul. I felt heartbreak. I felt hope. I felt happiness. I FELT ALL THE FEELS. I WAS FLOATING IN FEELS THE WHOLE STORY!!!

“You’re so screwed,” I rasp in her ear. I’m going to ruin you for everyone else your whole life.”

“I’m counting on it,” she breathes.

Oh SWEET SIGH. Racer has RUINED me in the best way as this romance OWNS ME!!! Racer has this UNPARALLELED INTENSITY that made me inhale every word as if it were my last breath. This book BUZZES with enticing energy where I was rendered BREATHLESS. Racer is as sweet and swoony as it is hot and heartfelt. I never thought I’d love Racer like Remy, but I loved him even more—a lethal mix of tough and tender for one incredible alpha! I LOVED IT ALL!!! Racer is HOT, HEADY, and so full of HEART that I MELTED while reading. I was a GONER!!!

GAH!!! What did you do to me, Katy Evans?!? I’m still trying to come off the HIGH I chased and raced called Racer! The perfect complement and conclusion to the Real series, Racer is a story that STAYS FOREVER!!! I still FEEL this thrilling and tender tale coursing through me. Passionate … potent … powerful … Racer is HEART-POUNDING PERFECTION, the perfect end to the Real series! Racer is a ROMANTIC RUSH I want to feel forever.

“Tell me you want me, all of me.”

There aren’t enough stars for this story and series…a new TOP 2017 READ!!!! RACER is simply IRRESISTIBLE!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-racing stars

Racer, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is LIVE!!!

A bad boy with something to prove.

A woman with a mission.

The race of their lives.

The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…

but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.


I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.

I don’t know what to say.

This guy has left me sort of speechless.

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.

Oh god.

Why am I licking my lips?

It only made his eyes narrow and darken.

           I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?

“This is illegal,” I state.

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”

I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”

“So are you, Alana.”

“It’s just … Lana.”

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”

I lose my breath.

My eyes wide.

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.

“And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”

Review – How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney


The Learning Hours by Sara Ney

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

The old adage states: “Never judge a book by its cover.” Often a cover makes you stop but the words make you stay. If you literally eye-stalk the three book covers from Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series, you’ll think they are hot, sexy stories that may make you blush. Once you meet Sara Ney’s words inside, you’ll be completely WOWED!!! How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is as stunning as its cover, a book even more beautiful inside than out, a book that BROKE ME in the best way!

I was CAPTIVATED and so WHOLEHEARTEDLY CONSUMED from the start, as Sara Ney’s words drew me in like a moth to a flame. I. COULD. NOT. PUT. THIS. SPELLBINDING STORY. DOWN!!! How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours was my drug, and I could not get a big enough hit of this heady fix. The push and pull made me BREATHLESS! I felt the RUSH of this romance … so raw … so relentless … so WOW!!! 

I love a good challenge, and he’s giving me one whether he intends to or not.

This Douchebag is DIFFERENT than the rest. How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is UNIQUE with a powerful plot that will penetrate your heart from the start. You’ll instantly fall in love with the beautifully broken hero, one you’ll want to hug so hard. You’ll love the gorgeous and spirited heroine too but it may take longer to warm up to her as she will have to win you over first. You’ll love every piece of this POWERFUL TALE.


How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours started out slow but a burn built that beckoned me right into the flames as my heart caught fire, a slow burn seeping into my soul. This SLOW BURN bleeds angst! The sexual tension is TOTAL INTOXICATION!!! I was so IMMERSED with this hero and heroine that I felt their frustration too, and it just made me crave more…all the delicious angst! 

I slowly slide my skin across his. Flesh to flesh. My pulse quickens at the contact. Our eyes connect; I know he feels it too.

This hero and heroine are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry hot and heady! I felt their palpable connection. I felt the sensuality smoke through me. I FELT IT ALL!!!

“You should see yourself,” she whispers on a whimper. “You’re gorgeous.”

And in this moment, I believe her. I have to.

These words?!? They penetrated me like a knife, twisting and turning around my heart. I SWOONED and SHATTERED!!! This hero tore my heart apart—this broken beauty—and my heart hurt like his. I LOVED this perfectly imperfect man!!! I FELL so hard for both the beautifully broken hero, and the stunningly gorgeous and confident heroine. 

I’m not out of his league; he’s out of mine.



I LOST MYSELF in this last series book, How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours, vanishing into this life-altering story—UTTERLY SPELLBOUND—as it seized every part of me: body, heart, and soul. This love story is an ALL-CONSUMING CLINGER that clung to my heart so hard; I could not and did not want to let go!!! I don’t want to let this humorous, heated, and heartfelt series go! Oh how I already miss these Douchebags, all so different but all endearing!!! These characters centered around a college wrestling team still feel like family and I’m not ready to bid them farewell.

How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is so HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! Beauty is found best from within and this book BLEEDS BEAUTY in a love story that is incredible, inspirational, and PERFECTLY IMPERFECT. Fierce, flawed, and feel-worthy, this fractured fairytale of a romance is ALL THE THINGS!!! ALL THE FEELS!!! ALL THE LOVE!!! ALL THE STARS for a story that SLAYS ALL OF THE SOUL!!!

How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is another top 2017 read!!! 

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 but worth all the soul-slaying stars

He’s not a douchebag; but that doesn’t stop his friends from turning him into one.


So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?
Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.


One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up–they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.


He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair.

He’s slouching, hunched over his table.

Defeated. Tired.

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.
Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading.


“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air.

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument.

Twenty feet.





No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance.

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…

Review – Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

STUD_FINDER_cover_Lauren Blakely

Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Warning: You will get addicted to the DRUG that is Lauren Blakely’s writing!!!

Here’s how I read a Lauren Blakely book: First, I sometimes skip the blurb as I don’t even need to read it to know I’ll love whatever crack this author churns; I get high on it all! I proceed with zero caution, diving in, and then devouring as if I am out to get drunk, downing each word like a smooth shot of fine whiskey.

Stud Finder. I don’t need the cover or the blurb to lead me to read because HELLO HOT-AS-HELL TITLE! Off to find a stud! SOLD!!!

This love story is even more spectacular than its clever and self-combusting title. This love story is so SWOONY and SWEET. This love story—this Stud Finder—SWEPT ME AWAY!!!

I was so CHARMED by this flirty fairy tale … HOOK, LINE, and SINKER!!! Sink her…YES, I sank so hard into Stud Finder that I could not and did not stop reading until the end! PURE ADDICTION!!!

Once upon a time beautiful Princess Evie, could not find a prince because she was helping other princesses find their princes. This beautiful princess loved helping others find love but had given up on love for herself. Until she helps the very handsome Prince Dylan, her best friend’s brother, find a princess.

I SMILED at the flirty and witty banter between this hero and heroine. 

“C’mon, Evie. Go wild with me.”

The way he says those words are part-goad, part-flirt, and there’s something about him I can’t resist.

Stud finder RDL teaser 1

I LAUGHED at and LOVED Dylan’s obvious ogling and deliciously dirty mouth!!! 

I nearly whimpered at her downward dog in front of me. I am a dog as I stare at her ass.

I SWOONED and SMOLDERED as Stud Finder’s alpha in hot nerd packaging made me weak in the knees!!! One of my kryptonite story scenes is when the hero says, F-it, takes the risk, and shocks the heroine speechless with a kiss. When Dylan delivers this take-charge kiss, I WAS DONE!!! A hero who COMMANDS, cupping the heroine’s face, as he plants a sensual, full-body kiss on her is so FREAKIN’ FIRE-HOT and HEADY!!! I am still melting from this scene…JUST YES!!! 

He parts his lips to speak, then mutters, “Fuck it.” He cups my face in his hands and dips his mouth to mine.

Laugh-out-loud funny meets slow-burning love in Stud Finder, a fairy tale guaranteed to make you smile and swoon! Charming characters, combustible chemistry, imaginative and engaging writing, sugary sweetness, and a plot that pulls the reader in make Stud Finder the PERFECT FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE! I ADORED this SWOONY and HEART-HAPPY LOVE STORY! Stud Finder is a match made in romance heaven…the perfect find…the perfect fairytale!!!

“I want you to match me with you.”

Young couple in love, hugging on the street. Selective focus.

P.S. #TeamTeaAlways

💋💋💋💋💋 melt-worthy ‘perfect match’ kisses

Man seeking woman: Hot, rich, smart, witty, self-made multimillionaire Internet genius seeks classy, intelligent, sexy, fun-loving woman who’s interested in settling down and sharing all the good things.

There. Best. Ad. Ever.

I will absolutely find the woman of my dreams, someone who’ll love me for me. Even if my sister thinks I need help dating, I’m confident I can pull this off, courtesy of the great worldwide web.

Let me just hit the upload button right now…


No. Just no. As a woman and a professional matchmaker, I can’t let Dylan Parker run this ad. He’s the catch of all catches. That’s why his sister has asked me to help her ridiculously good-looking, insanely rich, but socially clueless brother find a woman. As a broker of happily ever afters, I’m known as the Stud Finder since I make a great living pairing wildly successful women with men who won’t fleece them but will adore them. After all, what woman in her right mind wouldn’t fall in love with Dylan?

I mean, besides me. It totally won’t be me.


What am I doing?

Dylan is my client’s brother.

Dylan is now my client.

I’m not interested in a match for myself. I’m not looking for love. I’m focused on work, and Dylan is my work.

The trouble is, my work turns me on more than I expected, and that’s for one elemental reason—I like him.

I like him so very much.

That’s why I jerk this conversation back to the purpose of these get-togethers—prepping him for his princess charming, whoever she may be.

I brush one palm against the other. “The big question is—are you ready for me to set you up on your first date? Or do you think the fall in yoga has set you back?” I wink.

“You think falling in yoga means I’m not ready to date?”

I laugh. Nervously. “Well, not entirely. But it did remind me what we talked about before we had tea. That we all have a bit of dork in us. So, I didn’t know if you wanted to walk through all the potential topics, moments, pitfalls, and so on.”

“Like a pre-date prep? Or maybe even a practice session?”

“Sure, we can practice now if you’d like,” I offer.

He doesn’t answer right away. When he does, he takes his time, like he’s making an offer. “Or maybe we can practice in a true date simulation.”

Tingles race over my shoulders. “Like a practice date?”

His eyes twinkle like stars. “I need a practice date badly. Can I take you on one? It would be so helpful to review everything. Make sure I’m ready.”

When he puts it like that… “Yes, of course.”

I want him to put his best foot forward. I didn’t say yes because I want to date him. I wouldn’t do that, even though when he walks away, all I can think is how on earth did I wind up with a pitter-pattering heart for a man I’m handing off to another woman?

There are books that you start reading and you just know will consume you, steal your breath, make your heart pound, cry big fat ugly tears, soothe your heart then make you cry all over again with sheer happiness. Well Ms Elliott you have done each and every one of those things to me with this book, I’m not sure what to do with myself. 
The second instalment in the Cowboys and angels series and lord have mercy do they just keep getting better, The Parker family have stole a forever piece of my heart, I could honestly read about them all day. Amelia may be the baby of the family but that girl has sass and determination along with the finest. Wade is a character that right from the start you just need to Love. The story flows with effortless perfection, consuming you and everything around you stands still, nothing else matters, you don’t even realise your sat holding your breath at times or how deep you have fallen into the story until the tears start to roll down you face. 
A 5 star and keep on going stars. 


I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.


A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.


Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?


Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Review – Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner


Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From my years of devouring this amazing author’s work, I’ve learned several things: A J. Kenner romance is not a story but a SHEER SEDUCTION! As such, this writer’s words always make me sink into her stories. I will ALWAYS ADORE and FOREVER DEVOUR the Starks and their empire of friends and family. I’m devoted to this Stark network of which I’m hopelessly in love.

J. Kenner best summarizes the meaning of the Stark family—and all who cross their path—in her latest sensation, Wicked Dirty:

Honestly, these people are a bit like a puzzle, their lives crossing and overlapping and all of it woven together in a tapestry of friendship and family.

Wicked Dirty CLAIMED and CONSUMED every ounce of me from the very first page. Mind racing. Pulse pounding. Breaths bated. Feels flowing. Eyes wide in anticipation. Heart beating out of my chest. I felt the current of Wicked Dirty flow through me. I was DRUNK on this book that was my fine whiskey, so smooth and spectacular, and could not get enough of this Wicked Dirty drink.

A broken hero and heroine collide, a combustion of chemistry, where barriers are broken and trust is on the line. I LOVED the hero, Lyle, and the heroine, Sugar, both broken and beautiful. 

He touched me—and despite all my defenses, I fell.


Beautiful Sugar is sweet like her name, a strong and sassy heroine who I quickly admired. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Sugar wasn’t looking for a broken Prince Charming, Lyle, to rescue her, but the dark knight wasn’t looking for a damsel either.

Lyle is tall, built, and utterly gorgeous. I LOVED Lyle along with his dirty-talking mouth and huge heart! A Hollywood actor, Lyle, is used to disguising himself, wearing an acting mask like a safety shield.

Until one woman sees beneath the mask…

I feel so twisted up inside. Like I can feel his pain—and there’s so damn much of it.

One woman tests his limits…

“What do I want?”

He traces his fingertip along the neckline of the bodice, making me shiver.

“Isn’t that a loaded question? So much. But I can’t have any of it.”

One woman makes him want and feel…

“I want you, Sugar…I want to lose myself inside your heat, and I want to make you come like you never have before.”


HOLY HOT!!! These deliciously dirty words made me WANTON!

Reality and fantasy collide, and it may be the end for the broken prince and princess….

We’re walking a very thin line, he and I. And I’m not at all sure where pretending ends and reality begins.

Wicked Dirty by Julie Kenner wasn’t quite what I expected: it was SO MUCH MORE!!! This love story thoroughly SEDUCED my body, heart, and soul. I shivered in excitement and smoldered in need, as Wicked Dirty made me BREATHLESS! This book BUZZES with energy, as this is a romance YOU’LL FEEL with each seductive word.

Wicked Dirty is hot, heady, heart-pounding pleasure!!! This story is a sensual slow burn that blazed though me everywhere! I was ENRAPTURED with every enticing word. Wicked Dirty is a diamond that is a little dirty at first glance but oh so FLAWLESS!!! INTENSITY and INTOXICATION merge with PASSION and PLEASURE in Wicked Dirty, a ROMANTIC RUSH you won’t want to end.

One of my new favorites by J. Kenner…PURE PERFECTION!!!

💋💋💋💋💋 sensual, soulful, and seductive kisses

Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.

But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.

Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.

But sometimes love has a price.

And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?



My blood pounds through my body, my heart beating so hard that I can feel the pressure not only against my ribs, but against the wall behind me. My lips are parted, my breath coming in shaky gasps.

He’s only inches away, so close I could reach out and touch that famous, gorgeous face. His eyes, as deep and blue as the summer sky, roam over me. He eases closer, moving slowly, his face reflecting a hunger that sends shivers through me.

Once again, my mind conjures the image of a hungry wolf. Only now I’m thinking that maybe getting eaten wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Besides, I’m here. Might as well enjoy it.

Then, of course, I remember exactly what it is.

Oh, God.

His fingertip brushes my forehead, and I almost jump out of my skin. I meet his eyes, see something that looks like irritation, and want to kick myself. I need to focus, dammit.

“You were somewhere else.” He speaks flatly, as if he’s working to keep all emotion out.

I shake my head, conjuring a lie. “I’m right here.” And then, because I’ve seen movies with call girls, I put my hand flat on his chest, trying to seem seductive. He’s wearing a gray T-shirt, and I can feel his heart beating beneath the planes of his muscled chest.

I read somewhere that he was getting in shape to play a superhero in an upcoming movie. And kudos to whoever’s orchestrating that transformation, because this guy is rock solid.

He’s still looking at me, and I fist my hand in the material of his shirt, needing an anchor against the storm of emotion I see playing out on his face. Desire. Hunger. Longing. Regret.

And pain. I see so much damn pain that I have to fight the urge to cup my palm against his cheek and tell him that whatever it is, it’s going to be okay.

Instead, I simply whisper, “Lyle?”

I’m not sure if it was the wrong thing or the right thing to say, but I know that it was unexpected. And before I can apologize or cover or say anything else at all, he is on me. One hand at my throat, the other hard on my breast. I’m pinned against the wall, helpless, as he claims my mouth again. Wildly. Brutally.

I try to think what I’m supposed to do—try to respond. But I’m trapped. I’m not Sugar. I’m not Laine. I’m not anyone. This isn’t about sex. It’s about pain and need and that storm of horrors I saw on his face. I might as well not even be here. And as his hand squeezes tight on my breast—as his mouth clashes so hard against mine that he draws blood—my only thought is that I shouldn’t have come at all. That this was stupid. Foolish. And that this night is going to leave me scarred.

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to be what he wants. A warm body. An anonymous female.

But I can’t do it. I can’t do it at all.

All I can be is me. A woman desperate enough to have sex for money. A girl trying anything and everything to save her house. To protect her family’s memory.

I can be that girl.

But I can’t be nothing. I can’t be no one.

And as his hand tightens in my hair—as he kisses me violently—as his body presses hard against mine and I feel the steel of his erection—I know that I’ve made a terrible, horrible, awful mistake.

Review – Rock Me by Carly Phillips

Rock Me cover

Review graphic

Oh, Carly’s books just make me HAPPY!

I’m a such a sucker for second chance romance. This was perfect and introduced to another set of fantastic characters in this new series. This series is going to burn, burn, burn the pages if Ben Hollander and Summer Michelle are any indication of what is coming!

Ben and Summer met when he worked security for the TV musical competition that Summer was a contestant for. Beautiful, talented and just down to Earth, Ben finds himself falling for the small town girl and Summer certainly fills the same. Still petty jealousies from another contestant find Summer and Ben’s relationship outed and Ben finds himself without a job. As much as she wants Ben and is willing to leave the competition to be with him, Summer wants a shot at the career she has always dreamed of. Ben leaves and tries to find a way to put his past behind him.

But the past is never far behind.

When Summer begins receiving death threats while on a promotional tour, Ben finds himself face to face with the beautiful star that broke his heart but still has it in her hands. He’s determined to keep to business and keep her safe. Nothing more. Let the fireworks begin! Oh, Ben and Summer are so good together! No matter how much they want to keep things professional between them, there’s no fighting chemistry between these two. There’s also no way to deny just how much danger Summer is in.

This was sexy and fun! A great read and a wonderful beginning to another amazing series. After getting a brief glimpse into the group of bodyguards that Ben calls family, this series is certainly one we don’t want to miss.

Fantastic, Carly!

Bodyguard Bad Boys… Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!

Review – Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland.

Mannnn, why must Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland be SO FREAKING GOOD? I mean I’m legit running out of good things to say about these two and the magic they write together! Like, this book, features a HOT British Dr who is pure SIN & SWOON! I can’t even!!

In all honesty, I am actually stuck on what to say. I just want to shout that this book was amazing and beautiful and perfect and awesome and everything. Because it was. It was all that and more.  

The writing was seamless. The story line, perfection. The connection of the characters was instant and intense and so believable. I was addicted from beginning to end and devoured it in one sitting. 

Penelope & Vi are unstoppable! I adore them together and apart. Never stop writing ladies, NEVER. #thisbritlovedyourbrit ❤

From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 

No questions asked. 

Think about it. 

Or don’t. 

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

Review – Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Juliette Poe

Barking Up The Wrong Tree FOR WEB

Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Juliette Poe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With each book Juliette Poe brings us in the Sex and Sweet Tea series, I fall more in love!!! Maybe it’s because I lived near the real North Carolina area of this story’s setting but Whynot feels like home. Its residents, these characters that Juliette Poe magically brings to life, feel like family…my family. Juliette Poe transports you to the sweet, small town South where tradition, history, grace, manners, and more rule. Barking Up the Wrong Tree is the perfect light-hearted love story—SASSY and SWEET SOUTHERN GOODNESS!!!

This love story of a Southern gal meets a Yankee guy SWEPT THIS SOUTHERN GAL AWAY!

Beautiful Laken Mancinkus is down-to-earth, a Southern gal full of sweetness and sass! This caring vet has a huge heart but shields it so it doesn’t shatter again. I adored Laken and could be this heroine’s bestie!

“City boy…not sure you belong down here.”

Jake McDaniel is tall, dark, built, and handsome! This former pro football player stands out in the small Southern town, a Yankee with big bucks. Oh did I love Jake!

Laken and Jakes’ paths cross when she comes to his rescue, the vet making a home visit, and its instant fireworks for this couple. 

“You’re flirting with me? I hadn’t caught that.”

“I’ll have to up my game then.”

This Yankee and Southerner MELT when they collide and are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry, one palpable connection! 

“I told you we weren’t dating.”

“And I told you it was fine if you keep telling yourself that.”

Jake is determined to break the barrier to Laken’s heart along with other obstacles that stand in their way.

I’m a determined man who always goes for what he wants.

Completely charismatic and charming, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is a captivating read! It’s a little playful and a lot of fun. Refreshing like cold lemonade on a hot summer day, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is sweet Southern romance…no drama…just small town swoon. ENCHANTING and ENDEARING, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is the perfect flirty and feel-good love story that’s smooth and satisfying! 💜

💋💋💋💋 sweet Southern kisses

View all my reviews


Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.

Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.

Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.

Review graphic

This incredible story is one that shook me. It is a story about regret, loss and a grief that encompasses every aspect of life and steals its joy. This is a story of a man who many of thought is a total jerk, a lost cause. Some have even called him a cheater. Reading Logan’s story and then re-reading in parts, I see Logan as a man who is deeply devastated, riddled with guilt and trying everything he can to cope. Even if that means he beds and leaves, drinks to dangerous levels, treats everyone around him with contempt and keeps people at a safe distance.

Grief has no rhyme or reason. It has no timetable. There’s no manual to follow to ease the unbearable sadness. This story is Logan’s way to speak his pain. His way is destructive, cruel to those who care for him. Shannon was the love of his life and their parting was not pleasant. Meeting Hannah finally is a step toward healing his heart and mending his soul. After two years, he finally feels something and in Hannah, he finds a kindred spirit because she has been grieving, too.

Hannah has suffered the loss of not only her brother but the loss of a relationship that she felt would help her move forward. Graduating from college, moving away from a home filled with memories and starting over is just what she needs. Meeting Logan and connecting with him changes her life in such a short period of time. She accepts that Logan is in pain, that he’s not ready to move on but she knows that she wants him and that she wants to be a part of his life. Still, how much can one person take when you’re constantly being pushed away? Still Hannah is a fighter.

Breathing You In is filled with such emotionally riveting moments, powerful realizations and steamy chemistry. When I read the last pages, I had tears running down my face. S gave readers so much in this story, from soaring highs to heartbreaking lows. I saw Logan’s triumphs as well as his setbacks. I felt Hannah’s confusion and her love for this tremendously wonderful but complicated man.

I loved every single moment. Well done, S!


Breathing You In Teaser 1


Tragedy brings them together.

Life may tear them apart.

Two years after losing my wife and unborn child, I’m at rock bottom. I blanket my life with addictions to ease the pain.

Until life takes me on a detour, guiding me for a path I never expected.

Meeting Hannah Harris and those enticing deep emerald eyes makes the darkness shimmer and the oxygen in my lungs flow whenever she’s near me. When I’m with her, everything falls easily into place and she relieves the pain, making it easy to live. I’m clinging on to her for solace and salvation.

But how do I find a way to breathe in a new life and love while learning how to exhale the agony of my past?

Review – Drunk On You by Harper Sloan

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]

Review graphic

C’est un des livres plus chauds de l’année et donc la peine d’attendre! Oh, mon cœur!

Shane Kingston has to be one of Harper’s sexiest leading men. Stripper turned business partner, occassional bartender and spotlight dancer. The man is seriously alpha, a bit of a control freak and what he wants – has always wanted – is Nikki Clark. Only two things stand in the way, or rather two people. That would be their exes Lacey and Seth. These two just can’t seem to let go more than a year after the break ups. Nikki is ready to move on, let loose and learn to have fun. Shane wants to move on, let loose and have fun with Nikki. They’ve always been attracted to each other. Now they don’t have to deny what they want. After one SERIOUSLY sexy dance at Dirty Dog, these two make a deal that’s mutually beneficial and kills two birds with one stone. They get rid of their exes and thoroughly enjoy each others company. A fake relationship for the public but can that really work in private when these two have such a long standing burning attraction?

It’s hard not to love Nikki. She’s a dedicated teacher and friend. She’s beloved by all the Corps Security families and is seen as one of their own. When she gives, she gives everything. There’s no way that Shane can resist his draw to Nikki with her strong independent streak and her need to please and care for those that she loves. She is the perfect submissive compliment to his dominant nature. After a horrible breakup, Nikki wants to enjoy her life and part of that is indulging her needs with the dirty French talking, sexy hips wiggling bartender. It doesn’t take long for these two to see that what they have isn’t just a simply friendship with some great times burning the sheets. This is more and so much deeper than either expected with a lot more to lose. Suddenly what’s supposed to be fake becomes very real.

Insecurities arise and miscommunication takes its toll not only on Shane and Nikki but on their other friendships as well. Shane is a deep well of secrets and past hurts that demand that he have total control in all areas of his life. But what happens when once, just once, he lets it all go? Can Nikki give everything to Shane and finally have all that she’s ever wanted?

I finished Drunk On You with a smile on my face and immediately flipped back to read the ending another time. Then I flipped back to other scenes in the book that made me want more of Shane’s dominating personality and Nikki’s need for him. This trip to Hope Town has been my favorite so far. This book has a mix of everything that has made Harper one of my favorite go to authors – steamy sexy scenes, sweet heartwarming romance, a leading man that wears his alpha so well and a leading woman who I just had to cheer on as she fought for and then got her man. It was amazing to have Nate and Ember back as they supported their best friends in finding their own happy ending. Let’s not forget Shane’s little sister, Liberty. She’s a female version of her brother, strong willed and has deep hurts. I’m so excited to read her story on my next visit to Hope Town.

We may have been disappointed that we didn’t get this book earlier this year, but it was definitely worth the wait. My hat’s off to Harper and the absolutely divine Shane Kingston! Don’t miss this one. FANTASTIC, Harper!

Five Starboy and Mon Colibri Stars!


2 i want shane


It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.

One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.

He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
