Review – American King by Sierra Simone

American King AMAZON

Review graphic

There are no words that will ever fully satisfy me to use to describe this book. No, this entire series.

Nothing can describe the pain of loss and separation, the angst and misery of acceptance for circumstances beyond the King’s control, the elation of three people who are simply destined to be together and love each other beyond the conventions of society and its ideals of what love is and how marriage should look.

Nothing prepared me for the overwhelming push of emotion, the tears that came from some of the most beautiful words I have ever been privileged to read. Are there words to convey the sensuality and sexual pull between two of the strongest men and the drive they have between them to push each other to have more, to be more and to accept nothing less than everything? Mind, heart, body and soul. All or nothing. How do I describe Greer Galloway in this final book of the series – her supreme grace under tremendous pressure, her love for her King and her Prince, her fireball of naughtiness. And a back bone. She was regal, every bit the queen that Ash and Embry called her.

I loved these three incredible people so much. Just so very much.

The respect that I felt for President Maxen Ashley Colchester because he was true to himself, his feelings, and his convictions. He didn’t care about societal norms and the fact that he loved two people. He loved his country. He simply wanted peace for his people and in his own home. Ash was power, prowess and dominance. He elevated the room with his presence and he brought a queen and a prince to their knees with his love. The decisions that he had to face are not ones that should be wished upon anyone, but he commanded with brilliance, working behind the scenes to do what was best, not looking for any praise or a pat on the head. This role was Ash’s destiny.

I could say so much more about this series. I could talk volumes about the connection to Arthurian legend, the amazing secondary cast that is vital to this trilogy, or the politics of the story and how those politics mirror what is going on in our world even as I write this. I will simply say this. This series – and definitely American King – is not just the retelling of a legendary tale with a modern twist. It isn’t just a story full of some of the very best sex scenes ever written. It isn’t just some regular love story. This was an experience, one that must be fully embraced, devoured and held close to your heart. It was thought provoking, heartbreaking, absolutely astonishing. It was sinful, decadent and breathtaking. The New Camelot series is without fail the very best series that I have had the joy to read.

Bravo, Sierra.

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth.  And here I am.  My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal.  And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return.  I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Review – Personal Escort by Ainsley Booth

Personal Escort cover

Review graphic

Oh, Cara and Toby! Your best friends to lovers romance is just as wonderful the second and third time around…

When I first read Personal Escort in Love In Transit, I fell for these two immediately. It was easy to love the determined scientist and the man who was her brother’s best friend. From the beginning, there was a spark and a changing relationship built on affection and the strongest friendship. Toby has always felt a warmth and fondness for Cara. He wanted to protect her, give her her wings and support her in anyway that that he could. He never expected his best friend’s little sister to grow up and well, GROW up.

Cara knows the moment that her life changes and it’s not when the meddling Nana Rosso demands that she find a husband and take her place in the family business. It’s the first press of her lips to Toby’s lips. The deepening of the kiss and the hold it takes on her heart, mind and body. A kiss leads to more intimate chats, a friendship that grows and becomes the best part of her life. Love creeps up on these two and neither of them see it coming.

This was GLORIOUS! Cara and Toby’s relationship was so easy… effortless in its evolution. The years between them was no matter. The distance between them – Cara in Toronto, Toby in California – only made their attraction burn hotter. Toby is a true romantic at heart while Cara simply wants to pursue her career in peace. Still it wouldn’t hurt to have this man at her side. The romance between them is swoony, sensuous and just plain perfection. There is no one quite like Tobias Alexander Hunt. A sexy co-conspirator with a wonderful sense of humor, protective and a best friend unlike any other. Don’t forget alpha. When Toby says surrender, you do.

Personal Escort was delightful read! It only got better every time that I read it. I only fell harder for this amazing billionaire whose best friend’s little sister slowly became his entire world. Toby’s willingness to do all that he could to make Cara happy even going along with her crazy schemes made me laugh and sigh. Cara’s fight with her own insecurity and meddling from her family made me understand her need for independence. The slow satisfying burn between them was fantastic! I just loved this!

FANTASTIC, Ainsley!  Five Toby is Everything Stars!

Review – Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds

falling fast cover

Review graphic

This was another amazing story from Aurora Rose Reynolds!

When we first met Gia Caro and Colton Allyster back in Until June, it was easy to see that these two had a something so worth reading more about. Colton was clearly in command and had no problem letting Gia know that she was his and would not stop until she could admit with her mouth what was in her heart. Watching them develop their own BOOM in Falling Fast was a fun, emotional roller coaster ride full of sass, steam and one seriously sexy alpha.

These two have had their fair share of loss, anger and hurt. They shared more in common than they knew when they began their relationship. Gia had been lied to, abandoned and left with a stepmother who tolerated her existence after her father passed away. The one person that could have eased the grief of her father’s death was the grandmother who was her bridge to her mother. Lies kept them apart. Colton was left with a broken heart and an empty soul after being abandoned in his darkest hour by a woman he thought he would share his life – in sickness and in health. He fought and almost died for his country only to lose everything that mattered during his recovery.

Something so very important these two shared was a love for family and all the messy bonds and sacrifices that come with it. It was nothing for Gia to drop everything and return to the small town in Tennessee to be with her ailing and slowly deteriorating grandmother. It was nothing to be the one to care for her and to try to fit ten years of separation into what little time was left. It was that family bond that meant Colton would take his place in the family business, care for his mother and listen intently to the good advice given to him from his father. As surely as it was not expected, love would change everything for Gia and Colton after one chance meeting.

The attraction between these two burned so bright, intense and needy. But what a great ride it was! Colton was so alpha and commanding like those Mayson men that we are all fond of. Gia was determined to not fall under Colton’s dominating allure, only to fall harder than she ever imagined. This story was a feel good, laugh out loud, swoon and sigh read that I loved from the first page to the last. Colton and Gia made me love them wholeheartedly and cheer for two lost and broken people who fought and found all that they needed in each other, learning to leave the past in the past and working for something beautiful and worthwhile together.

This was amazing! Just amazing and I cannot wait to see where this series will go next!

FANTASTIC, ARR!

Falling Fast teaser

Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Review – Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00025]

Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lauren Blakely continues to captivate readers in a rom-com collaboration that is LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY meets LUST-FILLED LOVE with a cast of charming characters who feel like family, making these interwoven stories come to life. A FUN, FLIRTY, and FEEL-GOOD friends-to-lovers tale, HARD WOOD is as HEARTWARMING as it is HOT—achingly sweet and addictive like s’mores.

This story is one you’ll read with a permanent smile painted on your face. You’ll do a Hard Wood happy dance when characters so perfect for one another come together in the most magical of ways!

Patrick is a MAN’s MAN: one tall, fit, and HOT Tour Outdoor Guide Extraordinaire. This hot god is mega crushing on his friend, Mia. If he crosses the friendship line of no return, he will have to contend with his good friend who is Mia’s big brother. What a HARD dilemma Mr. Outdoors Man God, Patrick, is in … so hard.

I won’t be satisfied with snacks of Mia. I’ll need the full meal.

Mia is as smart as she is stunning, so sweet and independent…the perfect catch. Her brother’s friend doesn’t feel so friendly anymore as it is something more that could backfire.

The SWOON factor is HIGH…

”Everything crackles when I’m with you.”

The SIZZLE is even higher…so HOT!!!

”Get on me now.”

Hardwoodteaser8affectme

Patrick is pitching a different kind of tent down under with a frequent hard wood situation that is also HOT…FIRE-HOT!!! Petite beauty, Mia, hot bearded beast, Patrick, are are made for each other!!! I ADORED them both and lovable fur ball, Zeus, too!!!

”I don’t know how to stop wanting you.”

This Big Rock series can’t end!!! I’m not ready to say goodbye to these spellbinding characters who I’ve grown close to, who feel like friends, whom I LOVE SO MUCH!!! This series is one of my top rom-coms, as it has all the laughs and all the love!

Hard Wood is FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE!!! This story sizzles with smolder and swoon!!! With its FLAWLESS FUSION of heat, humor, and heart, Hard Wood is the perfect ROM-COM!

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch– good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she’s in town.

I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn’t work out. 

And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I’m ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What’s a few thousand miles when love’s involved? But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my adventure tour company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I’m about to find out, and I have a feeling I’m going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

FB_IMG_1494244623114

I let go of her hand and thread my fingers through her hair. “Get on me.”

Then I grab her hips and move her so she’s straddling my lap. She gasps, a sexy noise that turns into a moan as she sinks down on my hard-on.

I hiss because it feels so fucking good.

“I wanted to come over the other night. After dinner. After the elevator,” she blurts out.

“Yeah?”

She nods. “Dinner ran late, but I couldn’t stop thinking about you.”

“What were you thinking?”

“That we didn’t get to kiss, and I wanted to so badly.”

“I can fix that problem right now.”

I take her face in my hands and bring her to me. Then the world spirals away as I kiss Mia Summers for the very first time.

It’s extraordinary. Her lips brush against mine, and she wastes no time. She slides closer, rubbing on my dick as she presses her chest to me. It’s as if she’s climbing me, and God, how I want this. How I want her like this.

I thread my fingers through her hair, pulling her closer, kissing her deeper. Tasting her. Her mouth is soft and sweet, and she makes these little sounds—whimpers, sighs, gasps—that make me nearly lose my mind.

I’m kissing Mia. I’ve been crazy for her for so damn long, and she’s on my lap, rubbing against my erection, kissing me as if her every last breath depends on it. Her tongue tangles with mine, and in a hot second, the kiss become furious. Greedy. Like two people who are mad about each other. I curl my hands around her head, wanting to get as close as I can, but she bats them away.

I break contact for a moment and raise a questioning eyebrow.

“My turn.” She lifts her hands, cups my cheeks, and then she strokes my jaw. Reverently. Hungrily. And I know what she’s doing. She’s feeling my beard. She’s touching my stubbled jaw with eager fingers, as if she’s wanted to get her hands on me for as long as I’ve wanted to touch her.

I don’t stop her. I drop my hands to her hips, and I guide her along, moving her so she grinds against my cock, and she’s gasping and murmuring as she kisses me.

We consume each other. We are ravenous. My brain turns to static, firing pleasure signal after pleasure signal to every nerve in my body. I want to live in this moment for the rest of the night. I don’t ever want to forget how good it feels not only to kiss her, but to be kissed by her.

She rocks harder, goes faster, murmurs louder, then she separates and looks at me with desperate eyes. “You have no idea.”

I shake my head. “I do. I have every idea.”

Review  – Brash by JC Valentine 



5 out of 5 stars

 I didnt realize until just now that this was book 4 in the series. That being said,  I would’ve never known had I not just came to write this review. It makes sense now that I think about because there is a lot of history there, but I read through the story without feeling lost in anyway.
 Each chapter was different characters other than Taco and Bambi which fills you in completely on the story taking place. I definitely free a need to go back and read the first 3 books now. 
Bambi and Taco had a rollercoaster ride of a relationship. Fireworks definitely exploded in so many ways. I’m not talking about just in the bedroom. Secrets are uncovered and hearts are bared.  I definitely will be waiting for book 5.



 USA Today and International bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

She has a secret she’s desperate to keep…

With danger looming on the horizon, former FBI agent turned bunny, Bambi Lane, isn’t taking any chances. Taking refuge in a nearby town, she builds a new and comfortable life under the radar, but when trouble comes knocking on her door, she finds that the one thing she’s worked so hard to protect is about to be exposed.

He has a desire that won’t be denied.

Curtis “Taco” Nash, the Spartan’s road captain, has always marched to the beat of his own drum, his only loyalty to that of his brothers and the club. Only one person has ever successfully clawed their way under Curtis Nash’s skin, and when she disappeared from his life without so much as a goodbye, he wrote her off—at least, he tried to. One mention of the one who got away, and he’s consumed with desire—and anger. He wants answers. He wants her. He’s about to get a lot more than he bargained for.

As the war between the cartel and the Spartans heats up, Taco has to decide if he’s going to protect his brothers or the new life that’s waiting for him. When everything hangs in the balance, one thing is clear: No one is safe. Will Bambi and Taco be able to come together and find the strength to take a leap of faith before time runs out?

 EXCERPTS: BRASH, A Spartan Riders MC Romance by J.C. Valentine

EXCERPT #1

Lucina Cruiz was the devil. Wow, how many times had she heard that sentiment before? It always made her laugh though. She so enjoyed the fear in a man’s eyes before she cut them out. Even more, she enjoyed their screams, especially those last frantic pleas for mercy. The only thing she loathed was the constant lack of creativity.

One would think that staring death in the face would inspire some originality. Hell, it always inspired her, but then, she was the one doling it out, so maybe that was the difference. Still, she was a little bored with the whole “devil” nametag. It was becoming…cliché.

Perhaps she could hold a seminar about it.

Dressed in a brand new white satin negligée, Luciana stood over Manuel’s sleeping form. In her hand was the push dagger he kept in the top drawer in the table beside the bed. He had another under his pillow and a gun to go along with it.

Manuel had toys stashed all over the house, and she knew where every single one of them were hidden. No one did anything under her nose without her knowing about it.

As she did almost every night, Luciana waited for Manuel to fall asleep, and then she took out that dagger and stood over him, watching him sleep as she wondered how and when she’d do it. Kill him, that is.

It was on her to-do list, so it would happen. It wasn’t a matter of if, but when.

Just as she did every night, she lost track of time. Hours passed while she stared at him, memorizing his lithe form, those thick, muscular thighs and tight abs. He had the most beautiful face she’d ever seen on a man, but he was a killer. Just like her.

Two killers, both with ambitions, couldn’t coexist side by side. One day, it was going to come down to survival, and Lucina was determined to come out on top. She wasn’t called the Mantis for nothing.   

EXCERPT #2

Who the fuck was this douche canoe? Taco had been sitting outside the little ranch-style house with the ugly box hedges and stone and weed planter boxes debating what to say once he saw Bambi when Khaki Man came strolling up the walkway.

At first, Taco thought he was a salesman, but it became quickly obvious that he was there for something more personal. Maybe it was the grocery store flowers and the bag of goodies that tipped him off. Taco was observant like that.

Douche canoe must be the new boyfriend, he thought with disdain as he watched him barter, and knowing Bambi, he had been certain the next course of action would be seeing Mr. Khaki do the walk of shame.

But she’d welcomed the fucker inside.

That had made Taco’s blood boil. He didn’t like the idea of her with another man, and he sure as shit didn’t like seeing another man with her. That he was in her house at all sent Taco’s thoughts spiraling down into a dark place.

He had to exercise every ounce of patience to make himself stay planted in his car, a newly rebuilt IROC. He’d figured it would be better to roll up in a car than on a motorcycle, especially if she had a kid. Made him look more responsible.

Shit, why did he even care what she thought? It wasn’t as if she was waiting around for him, pining away. She had a fucking man in her house, and he was the one sitting outside like a damn stalker.

Taco had his hand on the key, about to start the car and get the hell out of there, when Khakis came strolling out carrying a car seat in one hand and a baby in the other. Bambi was hot on his ass, and she was glowing.

She was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a pink, V-neck T-shirt that showed off a lot more cleavage than he remembered her having. Taco looked her over a little closer, noting that her hips seems a little rounder, her stomach a little softer, and her thighs a little heavier.

Damn, she looked good. She’d always been sexy, but now she was…hotter. Sexier.

“Shit,” Taco hissed. No way was she just babysitting that kid. All those new curves? Those were from pregnancy. She’d run off to have a fucking baby.

The question now was, whose kid was it, his or Mr. Rogers?

EXCERPT #3

He wanted his answers—now. Grabbing the handle, he twisted the knob and went inside.

Bambi was laying the baby down in a white, lacy bassinette beside the bed. When she looked over her shoulder at him, it was with pure malice. “I just got him to sleep. Don’t make a sound. Don’t even breathe,” she whispered.

Taco wasn’t sure what to do. He suddenly found himself out of his element. He’d been around kids before, of course. They were crawling around the compound like cockroaches every weekend, especially during the daylight hours. He always tried to steer clear of that chaos. He didn’t dislike kids, not at all. But he didn’t have an affinity for them either.

Bambi backed away slowly, as if she were trying not to detonate a grenade. She moved so slowly and carefully, Taco rolled his eyes in exasperation.

“We need to talk,” he told her.

The instant his voice hit the room, the kid started shifting around, and Bambi froze in place. Taco didn’t see what the big deal was. He stepped farther inside and took a closer look at the wiggling person.

Bambi’s arm shot out. “I told you not to make a sound.”

“What’s the big deal?”

Then the kid started squirming in earnest, little mewling sounds squeaking out here and there, gaining in frequency and momentum until it was outright fussing, verging on a full-on tantrum.

“He’s a light sleeper,” Bambi said, her voice thick with irritation as she went back to the bassinette and tried to soothe the baby with a gentle hand on his belly. It wasn’t working. The more she tried to soothe, the more it squirmed.

“I don’t think it’s working,” Taco told her helpfully. Except the look she shot him told him his input wasn’t appreciated.

That’s when the baby started crying in earnest. “Thanks a lot,” she snapped at Taco as she scooped the baby up into her arms. “Do you have any idea how long it takes me to get him down for his nap?”

“Should I?”

Her mouth opened, but whatever she was going to say, she didn’t. Instead, she stormed up to him and thrust the red-faced human at him. “Here, I need to go to the bathroom.”

Taco’s reaction was to step back several paces. “What the hell am I supposed to do with it?”

She came at him again, matching each of his steps until they were back in the living room. “You hold him. That’s what you do.” She shoved the kid at him again, forcing it against his chest, and the look in her eyes said she wasn’t going to relent until he did.

Hesitantly, Taco’s hands slowly rose and latched onto the baby’s waist. It was solid and squishy, squirmy like an earthworm, and it was very, very unhappy. “Is it supposed to look like that?”

It is a boy, and he’s just upset. He’ll calm down in a minute. He just needs to be held.”

“I’m not sure about this. Can’t you just…take him with you?” The kid was looking at him, eyes all red and watery, lips pouty as he tried get a hold of himself.

“Well get sure. I’ll only be a minute.” Bambi stalked off, and for some reason Taco was pretty sure that she was going to take her sweet time.

When she was out of sight, he looked at the kid again. Held at arm’s length, they stared at each other, one stoic while the other did that sniffle-hiccup thing. “Yeah, I feel ya, buddy. I kind of feel like crying right now too. But ya know what? It looks like we’re stuck with each other for a few, so you gotta man up. This world isn’t made for criers.”

The baby just stared at him, but he was pulling it together, his face returning to its normal peachy color, eyes the same shade of blue as his own clearing.

“Glad to see we understand each other.”

EXCERPT #4

She’d witnessed the good, the bad, and the ugly of club life, and she’d gotten close enough to the flame to get burned. She should know better by now not to put her heart on the line, but it was already too late for that.

Hips flexing involuntarily—or maybe completely on purpose—Curtis didn’t even try to hold back his pained moan. “I want to fuck you so goddamn hard.”

“Then do it,” Bambi urged, surprised at herself for encouraging him when there was no way this could end well. They had so much water under the bridge, broken trust being among the biggest of their problems. But she wanted him. God help her, she wanted him so bad. It was as if all of those nights she’d tossed and turned, dreaming of this moment had finally come true. How could she turn him away now, when it was within her grasp?

“I don’t think you understand,” he said darkly. “I want to ram my cock in you so hard, you see stars. I want you to scream in pleasure and in pain. I want to hurt you, dollface, just like you hurt me.” He squeezed her breast again, releasing a warm rush of milk that soaked his hand and her shirt. “I want to see your pretty face stained with tears while you beg for more.”

Yes! God yes, she wanted it. She wanted his rough hands on her body, his harsh words in her ears. She wanted this man and all his brutality. She welcomed the punishment, needed it.

“Is that what you want? Because if it’s not, say so now, and I’ll walk back out that door.”

Her eyes widened in panic, remembering when he’d left early and how much that had hurt. She didn’t want that to happen ever again.

Review – Cuffed by K. Bromberg

CUFFED_K_BROMBERG_ibooks

CuffedbyK. Bromberg

My rating:5 of 5 stars


We forget the memories and just chase the moments.

When you read a story and you can feel the author’s heart in her words…well…it’s the best feeling in the world! K. Bromberg can make you FEEL ALL THE THINGS! I FELT K. Bromberg in CUFFED, her latest romance entailing a hot cop hero with a huge heart and the woman he forever saves.

I fell in love with Cuffed from the Synopsis alone. I had not even sunk myself into the story but I KNEW it would be a heart-thrashing hit. Then the Prologue both melted and shattered my heart, and I was a GONER!!! After the Prologue, I realized: Cuffed is not simply a hot cop story with a little heart; it is a heartfelt and heart-wrenching tale with ALL THE HEART!!! My emotions took wind of their own and flew where I lost control, control of which I would have willingly surrendered.

HEAD UP. WINGS OUT.

Through her emotionally-woven stories like Cuffed, K. Bromberg drags readers through the dark and then shines the light, so PROMISING and POWERFUL.She portrays the good that grows from bad that triumphs over evil. It’s the strength in spades from this compelling author’s characters who survive severe storms, breaking free from the pain of the past to finally stay in the sunshine, which RESONATES long after the last page. With heroes and heroines who are as bold as they are beautiful, K. Bromberg’s characters in Cuffed and her other work are like her words: as MESMERIZING as they are MEANINGFUL.

Beautiful and broken, Emerson has been knocked down in life, her spirit and soul shattered. Her heart is practically encased in armor, protecting it…protecting her. Emerson has lost trust in the world, one that has constantly let her down. Oh did I want to hug this heroine whose heartbreak became mine, a heroine I quickly adored!

Emerson’s wings are broken until one hero swoops in from her childhood…

”I don’t need a hero.”

Hero Teaser

A persistent hero who helps her fly.

HEAD UP. WINGS OUT.

Officer Grant Malone is one HOT cop with a huge heart! He is fierce, flirty, and oh-so-sexy! Grant is a hero in every way who does the right thing, even if it risks his life and puts his job on the line.

This collision of past with present, dark with light, and a whole lot of fate was INEVITABLE. 

”So sure of yourself, are you?”

“You’ve never been able to say no to me, Emerson.”

The banter BURNED me!!! Grant and Emerson possess the perfect of amount of passion and playfulness that had me HOOKED on them! Just MAGICAL together!!! This story SPARKS to life!!! 

”You make me feel when I don’t want to feel.”

Young beautiful pair of lovers hug and kiss

Grant, this hot cop and heartfelt hero, POSSESSED ME!!! Grant helps Emerson mend her wings that were destroyed, and I LOVED how he helps Emerson save herself. I LOVED everything about this alpha with all the heart! I was SMITTEN with Emerson, so beautiful and brave, with strength in spades. I LOVED this heroine as much as the hero! 

”You always say I’m the hero, but you’re the one who saved me.”

Cuffed is not simply a hot cop romance; it’s so MUCH MORE!!! This SOUL-SHATTERING story shows that beauty can bleed from the ugly. It’s a tale that tackles tough issues—so thought-provoking—that forever remain. It’s a story about hope after heartbreak and happiness after hope. It’s a story of STRENGTH and SURVIVAL, one that stomps on your heart and steals your smiles along with your breath.Cuffed is about taking that leap of faith…living for the moment…living life now.

”You have to be all in or get all out. There is no halfway when it comes to love.”

Cuffed lightens with banter while bringing battles to life—conquering demons deeply within—in one HEAVY and HEARTFELT story. Sexy yet sweet. Dark yet light. Turbulent yet tender. Broken yet beautiful. Cuffed is a fusion of fire and ice, a riveting romance that hits and holds the heart until the end. Oh was my heart hit!!! My soul shattered and soared!!! This story stole my breath and took my tears. I felt it all in this HEART-POUNDING JOURNEY, one that leaves a permanent mark on the heart!!!

HEAD UP. WINGS OUT.

I’m still flying…SO HIGH!!!

Review – Throne of Secrets  by Graceley Knox 



6 out of 5 stars

 At this moment I’m shocked speechless. This by far is the best most fast paced books in this series. It furthermore confirms that this will forever be my FAVORITE Fae series EVER!  Graceley has gone beyond my wildest imagination and planted me so far into the story that I felt I was a part of it. 
Extremely vivid details make you feel like you are there in the midst of all the action taking place. And let me tell you,  there is so much that goes down in this book that I couldn’t even put it down for a bathroom break. I could care less that my bladder feels on  the verge if exploding. I couldn’t stop until the very last word. 
You will be hanging on the edge of your seat  and going on the ride of your lives as you go on the journey to save the lives of many. Ever really steps up her game and her relationship with Dare is absolutely perfect. I love how their relationship has blossomed and I was particularly happy with a little twist thrown in there that I can’t wait to see play out. 
I’ll definitely be waiting with baited breath for the next book to find out how everything is going to turn out. Graceley Knox has proven to be a talented author who will quickly climb the ladder in the literary world to the top!

Review  – Ten Year Dance by Ara Grigorian 


6 out of 5 stars

 I was approached by someone to see if I’d be interested in reviewing a book from an unfamiliar author. Me being me,  said absolutely. I love meeting new authors and discovering so many different styles of writing.   I am so glad it’s over said yes. 
This book was so well written and perfectly executed. Your heart will run the gamut of emotions. One minute it’s sadness,  then happiness, then you want to slap the characters in the head and tell them to get it together already. It was the perfect slow burn and so uniquely different than the majority of the books I normally review.  
I will absolutely be on the lookout for anything new coming from this author,  and definitely will be going back to read previous books. This book is definitely deserving of 6 stars. 


 Best friends since sixth grade. A ten-year high school reunion. A truth they’ve danced around for a decade.


Unlucky-in-love Sophie Perez knows her divorce won’t be easy—but she doesn’t expect it to be dangerous. So when things get ugly, she agrees to move in with Pete Nicos, her commitment-phobic best friend since childhood. Pete has always been there for Sophie, just like she’s been there for him. At first, taking her in seems like the best option, but soon her tantalizing proximity blurs the lines of friendship. With their high school reunion on the horizon will they find closure, forgiveness, and new beginnings?

Ten Year Dance is a contemporary love story, rich with engaging and relatable characters trying to find themselves and each other. Ara Grigorian’s latest will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

Jump into Ten Year Dance and fall into this heartwarming story of second chances today!

“Ten Year Dance is a captivating story of second chances that pulls you in from the first page…and doesn’t let go until the very end.” ~Diana Gardin, critically-acclaimed author of Rescue Ops and Battle Scar series

“Ara Grigorian does it again! Ten Year Dance is a delightful and engaging romance about two best friends who may or may not realize they are soulmates. Like When Harry Met Sally, you will root for Pete and Sophie to find each other before it’s too late!” ~Janis Thomas, critically-acclaimed author

“Grigorian’s style is easy-going and intimate, with a deft touch for emotion and character interaction. … Both marriage-phobic Pete and soon-to-be-divorced Sophie’s separate yet intertwined emotional journeys are skillfully depicted over the course of the novel, with the resolution coming as a worthy payoff for readers.” ~Publisher’s Weekly BookLife

Review – Dignity by Jay Crownover

Dignity AMAZON

Dignity by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


”The things we have to work for are the things we appreciate the most.”

With each story that Jay Crownover pens to life in The Point/Breaking Point series, I FALL HARDER IN LOVE!!! With each story, I sink so far into this saga that is the best fusion of villains and heroes! With each story, the line is blurred among the Marked Men and those dark heroes of The Point where I am almost hard-pressed to choose a favorite.

Dignity struck my soul like a match, lighting it on fire, as I burned in anger as much as I bled tears. This broken hero and heroine made me break, shattering into pieces, where I wanted justice for them. I wanted revenge. I wanted to avenge … every wrong … every piece of past and present pain that hit these characters … EVERYTHING!!!

Stark, this dark hero supposedly without a heart, stole my heart! This hot nerd has all the intelligence and power. His pain was mine. Stark set me on fire! My body was on fire while my heart bled. This alpha was my addiction. 

No one was ever really sure if I was friend or foe.

Stark tows the line between hero and villain. His heart is made of ice until one woman made it melt.

”Sometimes you find the person who makes you want more, and you have to decide how much you’re willing to give.”

Noe is as equally brave as she is beautiful. This heroine has strength in spades but her smarts stand out most of all. I loved her strength and admired her courage to risk it all for justice like the superhero she has become. 

The guy was a monster and I loved everything about being pinned and held against all that strength.

A fight for justice mixed with a quest for survival bring Now and Stark together. United against evil. 

”What makes you think this is a fight we can win?”

“Because I can’t afford to lose again.”

Though it’s the fire that burns between Noe and Stark that is impossible to ignore. Their intelligence ignites as much as that fire where I felt an UNDENIABLE PULL between this hero and heroine. 

He became the only thing I could see. The only thing I could feel. The only thing I could think about.

RDL_Teaser_Dignity2

Together, Noe and Stark are mesmerizing … just magical! This is a couple fighting fate and all the odds. I loved watching them conquer their demons! Stark and Noe have a shared bond that neither can grasp nor get….one not of merely lovers but of intelligent and powerful equals…one of perhaps soulmates. 

”I don’t have much … but I want to give all to you.”

Dignity is a deep dive of mind and matter where every word matters!!! Brains are even sexier than beauty and brawn. I loved the ultra smart hero and heroine who were even stronger superheroes together. In this SOUL SLAYER, intelligence rules and is a weapon of reckoning that wrecks havoc in an ALLURING world where heroes are and villains are heroes.

RDL_Teaser_Dignity1

Bad has never been so good!!! Jay Crownover makes you love the ‘baddest’ of bad boys in her powerful The Point and Breaking Point novels, the men who sway from criminals to heroes, the boyfriends that mothers would hide from if you brought them home, the boys you should probably run from too…but you won’t, as you can’t help but adore these saints and sinners.

Jay Crownover’s writing reaches inside deeply, grabs your heart, holding it in its hands, and then both hits and hugs it so hard. Her stories—as insightful as they are emotional—make you THINK as much as FEEL. This visionary writes words that delve deeply into complex characters that are always so much more than their names, reputations, pasts, and more.

People were always something more than a simple label.

With each story Jay Crownover brings to life, I fall deeper into her spell that I’ve dubbed ‘Crownover Crack’ since meeting this author’s first masterpiece, Rule, years ago. This author opens your eyes with her words where you will find yourself quickly removing any preconceptions you may think or feel. I’ll never stop loving the best blend of black and white that Jay Crownover writes.

Dignity is ELECTRIC—an EXHILARATING RUSH of a romance that bleeds black and white into the perfect shade of gray. This SOUL-THRASHING story leaves judgement at the door and shows the finest of lines that exist between good and evil. Dignity hit my heart hard, wrecking it—wrecking me—in the best way!!! I LOVED this romantic thriller!!! Both haunting and heroic, Dignity is a HEADY and HEART-POUNDING JOURNEY worthy of its title and more!

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter—my mind being my greatest weapon and my biggest weakness.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I had shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of, you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me there is more than anyone ever bargained for.

FB_IMG_1494244623114

Protective and possessive instincts coiled around my gut and rage felt like it was going to choke me. I was so used to being cold and numb, I didn’t know what to do with the fire that was licking at my insides.

“I saw him take her out of the trunk when they got to the docks. He moved like a cop. Not the kind who is there to actually protect and serve, but the kind who pulls you over for no reason and slaps cuffs on you to prove a point. I was locked up for a lot of years, boy genius. I know what a dirty cop looks like. He had a busted-up nose and stitches on the side of his face. Should be pretty easy for Titus to identify him.”

Titus King was Bax’s half-brother and the only law enforcement officer in the entire city any of us slightly trusted. He was one of the few men the Point hadn’t tainted. He was a good guy, trying to do right by the people in our city, and he wouldn’t hesitate to throw Goddard’s dirty cop under the bus. But I didn’t want anyone going after the Mayor. His sadistic ass was all mine.

“Do you think they made it out of the container after you hit it with the truck?” That had been my idea. Nassir was only sending in Booker and Benny to get Noe out, but I didn’t think it was enough fire power. Since he refused to let me go, even siccing Chuck on me as a babysitter until the job was done, I made Benny go over the plan with me no less than a hundred times until I came up with a better one. Knocking the container sideways with one of the big semi-trucks that littered the area would give Benny the time he needed to get Noe out and distract the outside security detail enough that Booker could do his thing. It was a risk because the people inside the container—including Noe and Benny—might have ended up injured when the thing flipped, but the odds of them making it out were much higher than if Benny tried to take on everyone on his own.

“If Benny made it out, we won’t hear from him again. That was the deal he made with Nassir. He would get your girl and then disappear, so he can go and live happily ever after with his. As for the rest of them,” he shrugged, “I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Your girl said someone had a gun, so if they were shooting at Benny, he would do whatever he could to make sure they stopped. He’s not about to catch a bullet for any of us. I know you want that asshole alive for your own reasons, but honestly, it’s better if Benny popped him.”

It was better, but it wasn’t what I wanted. A bullet between the eyes was way too easy for a guy like Goddard. People would bemoan how bad the Point had become, how Goddard had been a staunch supporter of crime prevention measures. He would die a martyr and a legend. I couldn’t stand the thought of that. I wanted who Goddard was, who he really was, out in the open. I wanted his mansion doors flung wide open and every skeleton inside the walls exposed and thrown out on the perfectly manicured lawn for the entire world to see. I hated people who hid behind the law. I hated when men in any position of power got off on using their elevated status to jerk the helpless and hopeless around. Death wasn’t the answer. Devastation was.

I closed my eyes and squeezed the cold, still hand that was clasped in mine. Failure weighed heavy on my shoulders and fury lit up my blood like popping and sizzling firecrackers.

“When do we ever end up with anything that’s better for us?” That wasn’t how the Point worked. That wasn’t how we worked.

Booker grunted and I felt him move behind me. “It happens. It doesn’t seem like better should be able to find a foothold in this place, but despite all odds, it does.”

Review  – Hurricane by Laramie Briscoe 



5 out of 5 stars

 I’m starting off by claiming Remy for myself. Laramie,  I told you that we before I even read the book. His character is one of the best MC member’s I’ve ever read. I love his demeanor and humbleness,  and most of all his heart. He is so extremely lovable from the start,  and my heart broke for what happened to him in his past. Despite it all,  he is strong and survives even though he’s lonely. 
Tatum is the daughter of the MC prez and is all Remy thinks about. Even a year after a huge mistake tore them apart,  he pines for her and won’t stop until he has her. Once he finally does,  his past comes back to haunt the both and could be the hurricane to tear them apart for good. 
This was yet another must read from Laramie and I’ll be anxiously awaiting book 2. I’m pretty sure I know who the characters will be and I can’t be more excited. This is definitely a one click read! 






 The Prospect and the President’s daughter finally get their HEA…..


Remington “Remy” Sawyer

For most of my life I’ve been the person who lived with the hand he was dealt. Not much in my life have I had a say in. Birthed by parents I don’t talk to, I was raised by the only person who ever cared for me – my brother, Cash. Under his guidance, I’ve become the person I am today.

Productive member of society, and patched brother in the Heaven Hill MC.

I don’t want for anything, other than Tatum Walker.

We had a shot, and we both screwed it up……massively.

Tatum “Tate” Walker

Being the daughter of the President of the Heaven Hill MC is a burden, but one I’ll face every day with pride. It’s hard for me to know what people like me for. Is it my personality, my looks, or are they trying to get close to the Club? There’s one person I’ve never doubted.

Remington Sawyer.

A year ago we had one night of almost passion – that ended with me walking away in tears – and him walking away in anger.

Some time away from each other has given us perspective. 

Now, instead of the storm of chaos that was our one attempt at a relationship, we’re both ready for calm.

And nothing, they say, is as calm – as the eye of a Hurricane.
