Review – Unconscious Hearts by Harper Sloan

UnconsciousHearts_FrontCover

Crystal's review

She has given us security corps, sexy strippers, hot rockers and cool cowboys. Then she comes along with him. Thorn Evans. Oh, Harper. How can we ever thank you for gifting us with one of the most alpha, sexiest, most demanding heroes that you have ever written?

He’s a dream in tight tee shirts and jeans but makes a dress shirt and slacks look like a tuxedo. He grumpy, direct and to the point. His words left not only his girl swooning and sighing. I did too! But it isn’t just his smoldering looks or his commands that make Thorn incredible. It’s his heart. It’s the vulnerable behind the bluster… the way this man holds himself back because he’s seen so much and hurt that much more. He captivates from the moment he steps onto the pages and before I could turn those pages, he had my heart and to this day hasn’t let go.

Ari Daniels has had her share of heartbreak. Her past is filled with tragedy. One single act of betrayal changes her world. She is at a place in her life where she seems to be simply surviving instead of truly living. Ari isn’t prepared for this giant of a man who enters her life and for the first time in seven years makes her feel again. He batters and fights and won’t stop. He’s a hurricane with his sights set on destroying anything and anyone who stands in the way of his beauty… his more. What I loved so much about Ari is how she embraced her pain, looked it right in the eye and gave it the finger. And then she not only lived… she thrived. I cheered her on, applauded her strength and was jealous. That’s right. Absolutely jealous this woman had an amazing man like Thorn to awaken her senses and share her new experiences.

The secondary cast of characters in this story are just as vital as Thorn and Ari. They weaved their magic and made me laugh out loud. Thorn’s very best friend Wilder and Ari’s truest friend Piper have their own amazing story to tell. And just from the brief glimpse of them, theirs will burn hot and very heavy.

Unconscious Hearts is a tremendous love story. It is a story about courage, forgiveness and family and not just family by blood, but family by choice. It’s an emotional twisty roller coaster ride from heart stopping devastation to mile high elation. It’s the story of two scattered souls finding beauty and more. I hated when it ended but loved it at the very same time. Ari and Thorn’s story was sexy, sensual and real. So real. I was with every page I read and still am blown away.

This is truly Harper Sloan at her very best. Bravo, Harper! FANTASTIC!

Ari Daniels didn’t count on her whole world tumbling down around her in a mess of shredded promises, broken love, and unbelievable heartbreak. Alone and stricken with grief, she shouldered the blame and eventually closed her heart off, refusing to open it for another.  After all, anytime she tried, guilt and regret were waiting in the wings to remind her how painful it was.

A bet and one steamy night with a stranger force Ari to confront all she’s been hiding behind.  She tries to move on, but he refuses to stand down, wanting what she is terrified to give—herself.  This man may very well destroy her in the end, especially when it’s clear he has his own demons.

What happens when two broken souls come together, finally allowing themselves to believe in the beauty of love … only to have to fight harder than ever to keep it.

His eyes get hard for a beat before his features smooth back out.  “Yeah, beyond sure.  No one to pass this shit down to, and even if there was, I wouldn’t be givin’ someone ideas of materialistic bullshit if I did.  More to life than all this shit.”

“Okay, well, in that case …” I cough, not wanting to fight with him about our views when it comes to expensive wants versus needs.  Last time I tried to argue the benefits of learning to care for and value something you work hard to buy, I had a black eye for almost two weeks.   “In that case, I’m prepared to offer you a lump sum as a buyout for the whole collection, but I also want to mention, again, that consignment would be a more lucrative approach.  Our buyout is just a standard percent of resale value, but consignment would allow us to mark up each to give you a larger profit.”

“Told you, babe, want it gone.  I don’t give a shit about making it more lucrative.  Look around you, hardly hurting.”

“Still, it’s my obligation to make sure you’re informed.”

“Consider me informed.”

“Okay … so I can offer a tentative amount of three million.  I would need more time to inspect each item in depth for any defects that could affect the value and also to research a few pieces I feel may be limited editions so that could also affect the value.  Meaning that amount could go up or down, but I wouldn’t expect it to be less than two point five or more than four point seven-ish.  I wouldn’t need but maybe five days tops, and I can come during the day if that works better for your schedule.”

“You get this gone in two days, and I’ll take one mil.”

My whole body jerks back as if I had been slapped, staring at him like he was absolutely insane. 

“That’s absolutely insane,” I tell him, voicing my thoughts.

“No, that’s me not giving a shit and wanting it gone so I can get out of this place and sell it and all this shit some hand with care placed around each room.  Woulda left this shit in and sold it with the house, but for some reason I’ll never understand, you’re here, and I still just want it gone.  You don’t need five days when I’m taking a two mil hit, babe.  That would waste your time and mine, and I’m not a huge fan of wasting my time.  Way I see it, you win, and I get a cold mil for some shit I didn’t buy nor care about.  So you get this shit outta here, and all I need is that.”

“Thorn, I can’t in good conscience accept that.”

“Then dirty that conscience up and laugh your tight little ass all the way to the bank.  Don’t give a shit as long as it’s gone, and I don’t have to do anything to make it that way.”

“This is insanity.”

“Insanity would be tossing it all at the Goodwill drop-off.  I’m making money.  You’re making money.  Only thing sweeter than making money is doing it while I’m getting my cock wet, and babe, that only happens when my stock rises at the same time my cock does.”  He steps closer, and I back into the island, my chest burning as I hold my breath.  “Course, never had four mil worth of shit to sell to a woman who makes my cock rise without even trying.”

“Thorn,” I whisper, placing my hand against his hard chest with the intention of pushing him back.  Only, the second his warmth burns through his shirt and hits my skin, I can’t move an inch.

“Ari,” he mocks, his eyes bright.

“I, uh, the paperwork …” I close my eyes and focus on my breaths and the words my mouth can’t seem to form.  When my heart slows enough that I won’t die of a heart attack right here in heaven, I look back up at him.  “You’re breaking my brain, Thorn.  Please step back so I can think clearly without my body trying to die on me.”

The corners of his eyes crinkle as he continues to gaze down at me, but he does step back.  My arm falling down to my side.

“As much as I wish I could have this room cleared out for you tomorrow, it will take at least until late Monday.  I’ll need to meet with you beforehand to have some legal paperwork signed for the sale due to its size.  But my lawyer is an old family friend, so I can have that by tomorrow around dinnertime, if you wouldn’t mind meeting me to take care of that.  I won’t be able to get the cashier’s check until after those are signed, so late Monday is the best I can offer you.”

“Want this shit gone, but it’s hardly a hardship to wait a few more days if that means I’ve got a few more opportunities to try to make you want me as much as you want this shit around you,” he says, his deep voice thick with desire.

“Good heavens, you don’t stop, do you?”

“Not unless you beg, babe.”

“I think it’s best we went back to keeping things professional, Mr. Evans.”

This time, it isn’t a ghost of a smile on his lips.  Oh, no.  Not this time.  If I thought he was handsome before this moment, I was a fool.  Because Thorn Evans giving you his full, unhindered smile and a gaze so thick with unspoken promise as it washes over you and creates a fire of the desire you already felt … well, that expression on him turns him from sinfully hot to heart-stopping and irresistible instantly.

“It would take me five minutes to get you to beg me for it, Ms. Daniels.  Admit it.”

Offended at the thought that I’m easy, I narrow my eyes.  Finally.  At least anger is an emotion I’ve had plenty of practice dealing with.  “I’m not sure what kind of women you’re used to, but I promise you, I am not that type of woman.”

“Maybe three,” he oddly says, ignoring me.

“Three, what?” I snap.

“Minutes, sweetness.  Three minutes and you’d be begging me for all this shit and my cock.”

My mouth flounders, and I gasp.

“Though, pretty sure I could get that in less than a minute and get you doin’ all the work while I watch from my back.”

My arm is up, palm cracking against his cheek before I have the ability to do anything to stop it.  “I think we’re done here.”

I walk around him, ready to find my way out and let him find someone else to take all of this off his hands even if it kills a little part of my lux loving soul.  When his hand curls around my bicep—not painfully, but firm enough to make me stop—I look over my shoulder with a frown.  For a man who was just slapped, he looks almost gleeful.

“One minute, Ari.  Give me a minute and if you aren’t ready to beg me for it, when those sixty seconds are up, you can take this shit and not give me a penny for it.”

Walk away, Ari.  Walk.  Away.  No amount of money is worth being some man’s whore.

Spinning away from his hold, I jerk my arm free and step toward him with a roll up to my toes, getting my face as close to his as I can.  His scent overwhelms me. The subtle notes of his cologne fog my rational thought, making me drunk with need, and I sway slightly before correcting myself.

“Thirty seconds,”  I retort, my jaw tight with stubbornness.  

I’m not sure who I shocked more—him or me.  I have my answer, though, when I see victory flash in his eyes.  Oh, my God … what have I done?

“You’re on,” he agrees, his eyes alight with the promise backed up by his devilish grin.

I nod, incapable of anything more.  I stand there in shocked silence as he takes my phone, his thick fingers moving quickly over the screen.  I vaguely hear a chime from his pocket and before I can so much as blink, he’s handing me my things.

“Tomorrow, I’ll text you.  Paperwork first, then you beg.”

I gulp, jerk my head in what I hope resembles a nod of agreement, and then … I flee.

Review – I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU! Smoldering, sharp, and sweep-you-off-your-feet sweet, I Flipping Love You hooks you in from the very first page and never lets go. You’ll try to savor this one like fine wine but you’ll end up downing it like a shot of fine whiskey because I Flipping Love You is that ADDICTIVE. It’s a little combative, a lot combustible, and completely captivating. It was my GUILTY PLEASURE.

With its witty writing, addicting angst, smoldering heat, and sweet-as-pie swoon, I Flipping Love You is the PERFECT FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE. Simply SPELLBINDING! I needed a fire extinguisher, a fan, and the most freezing ice to put out the flames. This MELT-WORTHY love story had me practically shoving this charmingly stubborn hero and heroine together. The delicious sexual tension heated every ounce of me as the slow burn drove me wild. I Flipping Love You is as ENDEARINGLY SWEET as it is ENTICINGLY HOT.

“There’s a fine lime between hate and lust.”

You’ll fall hard for Rian and Pierce along with the charming secondary characters too. This hero and heroine are made for each other and their relationship was my beachside margarita: potent, powerful, and perfectly sweet. Pierce and Rian just melt together!!! I LOVED this romance centered around family with an unbreakable bond I greatly admired.

We’re like two trains on the same track, heading for each other. A collision is imminent.

I Flipping Love You is the IDEAL SUMMER READ. It’s SWEET. It’s SWOONY. It’s SIZZLING. With an alpha hero and a sassy heroine who have chemistry that penetrates the pages and a powerful plot that keeps you turning the pages, I Flipping Love You is the perfect rental for your heart. IT’S DOWNRIGHT PERFECTION! I ADORED this HOT and HEART-HAPPY LOVE STORY that’s a MUST-READ ROMANCE for the die-hard romantic. I FLIPPING LOVE this love story!!!

”I promise I’ll take good care of your heart.”

A MUST-READ ROMANCE!

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

Review – Folsom by Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster

Folsom by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

I don’t do dystopian books. The last dystopian series I read was Divergent in 2012-2014. I don’t do dystopian. Futuristic world settings and characters aren’t my thing. I don’t do dystopian or didn’t much … until now. Until Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster knocked me off my axis into the delicious dystopian world of FOLSOM.

With YEARS since my last dystopian, I had no idea what to expect with this unconventional romance. Nothing. So I went in with an open mind. I picked up Folsom, challenging myself, stepping so far from my story comfort zone that I wondered who I was, and dove into this oh-so-different-for-me book. Different is an understatement. Folsom is DARINGLY DIFFERENT. It’s unlike anything I’ve read before and so unique that it’s in its own UNIQUE UNIVERSE.Folsom is so different that I were to describe much, I’d ruin it for readers.

This is the way it should be. Men allowed to hunt.

Once I started Folsom, I didn’t want to … I wouldn’t … couldn’t stop reading. I couldn’t help but notice that this story authored by two authors was meticulously made. This author duo of Fisher and Asters write so seamlessly together as one solid voice, so seamless that you’ll be hard-pressed to tell where one starts and the other stops. I couldn’t put down this DELICIOUS DYSTOPIAN DELIGHT that became my far-out realm and reality. Its powerful and passionate plot of a female-dominate world with male pollinators DOMINATED ME. The strong and smoldering hero and heroine melted together and made me fall in love with them fast. This raw and riveting romance set in another world suddenly became my world.

The moment I saw her, I knew. A feeling, a draw, the smallest spark of kindling.

Thrilling, tender, and thought-provoking, Folsom takes you so far to the edge that you’ll be powerless to stop the fall of feels. This BOUNDARY-BREAKING BOOK beguiled me the whole time reading! Bold, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, Folsom is UTTERLY UNFORGETTABLE. I FELT this Folsom fantasy world as it were my reality. Folsom UNEQUIVOCALLY OWNED every ounce of me. Every thought. Every feel. EVERYTHING. Folsom is EVERYTHING!

”I’ve been living without feeling anything and now I feel everything.”

I can’t recommend Folsom highly enough! There aren’t enough stars for this out-of-this world romance! A TOP 2018 READ!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 daringly different and delicious stars

The nation as we know it is a thing of the past.

With the male species on the verge of extinction, a society called the End Men is formed to save the world. Folsom Donahue is one of twelve men whose sole purpose is to repopulate the Regions. The endless days spent having sex with strangers leaves Folsom with an emptiness no amount of women, money, or status can fill.

Until Gwen.

Gwen has wanted a child for as long as she can remember, but when she finally gets a chance to have her own, she uncovers a long hidden truth. The injustice she sees moves her to help save the men whom no one else believes need saving.

A forbidden love, grown in a time of despair, ignites a revolution.

Folsom and Gwen, torn between their love for each other and their sense of duty, must make a choice. But some will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Review – All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire

All the Little Lights

All the Little Lights
by Jamie McGuire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



”It’s good, you know, for things not to come easy. You appreciate them more.”

WOW! Jamie McGuire took my emotions on a romance roller coaster of thrills, twists, and turns that made my pulse pound and my heart soar! All the Little Lights was MY ADDICTION, and I was glued to every word of this thrilling, twisty and tender tale. The PARALYZING INTENSITY pulled me in—dark spun with light—piercing me everywhere. I equally swooned and sat in a sea of shock. All the Little Lights is a STUNNING STOTY of suspense, salvation, and soul that’s UNIQUE and UNFORGETTABLE.

”You can’t save everyone.”

“I just want to save her.”

I dove into this book blindly and wasn’t sure of my feelings for All the Little Lights at first. In fact, it was four stars for the first half of the story and then it soon became five. In a small-town Oklahoma setting lives an extremely unusual family and friends, a group of eccentric, extremely complex, and emotionally-challenged members. Told through the perspective of a teenage hero and heroine, All the Little Lights takes a deep dive into family dynamics and darkness, uncovering secrets and setting the truth free. It is young love at its best and all of the challenges that come with two teenagers growing together as one. As Catherine and Elliotts’ journey unfolded, complex and captivating layer by layer, its words wrapping around me tightly like me a bear hug, I became BESOTTED. This hero and heroines’ tale of young love—fierce, foreboding, and full of complications—stole my heart and became a part of me that I couldn’t and didn’t want to let go.

”You make me feel beautiful when you’re the beautiful one.”

Through her powerful and poignant words, Jamie McGuire courageously uncovers social topics and serious issues like depression, bullying, and racism. She brings light to darkness, tackling tough matters rather than brushing them under the rug. I can’t help but admire writers like Jamie McGuire for slaying serious subjects through their writing—meeting them head on—and making them their muses.

”Pain is beautiful?”

“Pain . . . Love. Can’t really have one without the other.”

The best suspense stories are like All the Little Lights—those that crawl so deeply into your head—where you’re not merely reading a book but living it too. With its keen level of detail, dark premonitions, and elements of danger, All the Little Lights leapt to life so vividly, as if I was watching a movie in my head. All the Little Lights appeals to the thrill seeker, the mystery solver, and those who love excitement with their romance. This adventure left me ACHING FOR MORE.

”I probably don’t deserve you, but I know I will love you more than anyone else will.”

All the Little Lights is a family and friends saga threaded with a coming-of-age love story, one I LIVED … FELT … LOVED. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their struggles and their devastatingly beautiful love story were MINE. All the Little Lights is a MASTERFULLY TOLD mystery meets thriller threaded with romance, a tale that TOUCHED MY HEART and SPARKED MY SOUL. I am not ready to let All the Little Lights go. All the BIG LOVE for All the Little Lights!

”We could save each other.”

Review – One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


”Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and live in the moment.”

I’m just a girl crying tears of love into her kindle from Meghan Quinn Author’s heart-hitting hockey romance, One Baby Daddy, a roller coaster of ROMANCE BLISS. SWEET SIGH! One Baby Daddy MELTED ME. This book made me BREATHLESS as it CRASHED INTO MY HEART. One Baby Daddy is an IRRESISTIBLE tale of heart meets heat—a written treasure—and I could not help but FALL HARD for this love story.

Hayden Holmes, where do I begin?!? This hot hockey hero with a huge heart stole my heart. Mr. Romance felt real! I’ve always been #TeamJock and Meghan Quinn wrote Hayden to perfection. Hayden is HERO PERFECTION!

”I’ll be damned if I don’t try to earn your heart every day for the rest of my life.”

I loved Adalyn as much as Hayden. She’s beautiful, super smart and full of snark. This heroine pulls no punches and I found myself nearly applauding her a few times for her bold and brash words, some delivered as zingers that I had to admire. This hero and heroine were magical together!

”You’re the man I want but can’t have.”

Meghan Quinn wrote the ULTIMATE LOVE STORY. One Baby Daddy checks off all the romance boxes: hot and huge-hearted alpha of a hero paired with a strong heroine, delicious sexual tension, wonderfully witty and full of butterfly-fluttering feels. It may just be my favorite book of this author’s to date. This slow burn of a romance made me SMOLDER and SWOON so much! One Baby Daddy is so PUCKING GOOD!

Game on. Adalyn will be mine.

Coming off an abrupt end to his season, Hayden Holmes wants nothing more than to forget about the dramatic season-ending game and get lost. So he returns to his hometown, Binghamton, New York for some relaxation, never expecting to meet a fiery yet funny nurse who takes his breath away.

They fall fast and hard for each other but with one life-alternating phone call, a massive bump in the road is firmly planted in front of them—and I’m not talking about a baby bump.

Hayden if left trying to fight for his relationship with Adalyn, but during the process, he never knew he was going to get Adalyn pregnant, and he sure as hell didn’t expect to have to fight for her affection either.

He’s there? Tiffany mouthed to Cam, who lifted his brows in acknowledgment and sipped his water.

Tiffany’s pulse, which had calmed down, kicked up again.

“Looks good,” Eric said, eyeing the food as he put the pitcher of Pinot Punch—a mix of pinot grigio, orange juice, peach schnapps, frozen peach slices, and Sprite—on the table.

“Thanks for doing that,” Tiffany said. “And sorry again for being such a klutz.”

“Yeah, well, at least you’re a pretty klutz.” He held her eyes for a heartbeat, then looked away, almost as if he’d startled himself with his own bravado.

As if sensing the need for intervention, Mina asked Eric what he was doing later. Spring Break officially started the next day. “You don’t usually have a day off after a shift, do you?”

“Nope,” Eric said. “But I also usually work until closing. I’m only on the clock for five hours tonight. Off at nine. Reece said he’d come in and cover for me.”

“Hot date?” Cam asked, and Tiffany kicked him under the table.

“Not exactly. Pretty much everyone in my apartment complex either goes to UT or recently graduated. So there’s a party tonight in the courtyard. When I mentioned it to Reece, he offered to cover for me. To be honest, I wasn’t planning on going, but when your boss tells you to go to a party…” He trailed off with a shrug.

“Sounds like fun,” Mina said. “Why weren’t you going to go?”

He shrugged, his eyes cutting quickly to Tiffany and then back to Mina. “I’ve only lived in this apartment for a few months, so I don’t know many of them yet. Guess I wasn’t in the mood to go stag.”

“So take someone,” Cam said.

“Sure,” Mina added. “Why don’t you take Tiffany?”

“What?” Tiffany said.

“Yeah?” Eric shifted to look at her. “I’d love the company if you’re up for it.”

“I—” She looked helplessly at Cam and Mina, both of whom were urging her on with their eyes. “Well, yeah. That sounds fun.”

Eric’s wide smile lit up her heart. “All right, then,” he said. “It’s a date.”

“Yeah,” Tiffany repeated, her voice raised above the cacophony of hooting and hollering going on in her head. “A date.”

Review – Fortuity by Rochelle Paige

Fortuity - eBook

Crystal's review

I have heard amazing things about Rochelle Paige and her great stories. I have never had the pleasure of reading her. I could not have picked a better introduction to Rochelle than this book. It truly blew me away. Faith and Dillon’s love story is beautiful, emotional and it seems that these two were fated to be together, to heal each other and to find the happiness that had eluded them both for quite some time.

I’ve read a lot of strong women characters. Their stories have ranged from as fantastic as healthy relationships to the worst possible abuse. Faith’s story as a young child in the foster care system slayed by heart and battered my soul from the moment I met her. Neglect at the hands of her mother and a foster family, Faith finds herself at death’s door but is given a second chance when she receives a transplant. Grabbing her life with both hands she taps into her inner strength and makes her life count. She left me so stunned and so grateful for my own well being. I rooted for her and demanded her happiness with every word that I read.

Dillon has had his own losses and engages in very high risk behaviors to cope. When his mother and father rescue him once again, the deal made brings a former foster kid into his life and changes his life in ways that he could not imagine. Thanks to Faith, Dillon begins to understand how precious life is and how the things he has taken for granted can change everyday life for Faith. The bond and the chemistry between these two was incredible. This time and experience he has had with her is simply eye opening. Not only for him but for me as well.

The ending of this book floored me! I sat and shook my head in disbelief and I am so anxiously awaiting Serenity to hit my kindle so I can finally see how the love story between Faith and Dillon ends. This duet is set to be one of my favorites this year! Rochelle Paige is so wonderfully talented. Her words are incredible and I’m just sorry that it has taken me this long to discover her. But since I have messaged her a million times while reading Fortuity, she’s got to realize she has a new fan in me!

FANTASTICALLY DONE, Rochelle!

Fortuity - Teaser 2 (1)

FB_IMG_1494244628116.jpg

The only kinds of luck I knew were bad and worse…until my life hung in the balance. I finally caught a break in the form of a second chance.
I vowed not to let it go to waste.
To make a difference.

But I didn’t start really living until I met him.
Dillon Montgomery.
My complete opposite—except for our matching tortured souls.

I couldn’t resist him for long.
How could I when his smallest touch made my heart race?
When it felt like we were destined to be together.

But sometimes luck and sorrow are intertwined…

Fortuity is the first book in the Fortuity Duet.

Fortuity - Teaser 1

img_0285-9

Dillon twisted his neck and flashed me an apologetic grin over his shoulder. Unwanted butterflies swirled in my belly, and I quickly yanked my hands away from his shoulders and took a step backwards. His eyes flashed with male satisfaction and his grin grew wider. Determined to ignore the impact he had on me, I shifted my focus to the students. “Your test date is coming fast, so you’ll need to squeeze in as much extra study time as you can without neglecting your regular coursework. Maybe set aside some time during Thanksgiving break when you don’t have as much homework.”

“Ugh. Studying over break sucks,” one of the girls complained.

“Yeah, but you guys are in the homestretch. This test score is one of the last things you need to get into college. Trust me, it’ll be worth the extra effort.”

“I guess if you could get into college while recovering from a transplant, then the least I can do is a little bit of studying over a holiday break that isn’t even that big of a deal since I don’t have a family to celebrate it with anyway.”

The other kids nodded in agreement, and I snuck a peek at Dillon while everyone finished packing up. His brown eyes were wide with shock. I quickly looked away before he could ask me anything, and focused on saying my goodbyes as the kids all headed out. We both kept quiet—for which I was incredibly grateful—as Dillon helped me clean up the room. When we were back on the road, I turned to him and asked, “Were you really teaching my kids how to count cards?”

His lips tilted up at the edges. “Maybe just a little.”

“It’s a good thing none of them have any money to gamble or else they might learn to enjoy blackjack as much as you do.” His lip tilt turned into a full-fledged grin, and I glared at him.  “I don’t know why you’re grinning at me! Look at what your affinity for gambling got you.”

“What?” He pointed at his face. “The black eye?”

“Yeah, for starters.”

His grin grew into a blinding smile. “It was worth it.”

“What? Why?”

“Because it’s the reason I met you.”

Shit. Those damn butterflies took flight in my stomach again.

Review – When Stars Burn Out by Carrie Aarons

When Stars Burn Out

Crystal's review

With each and every book that she writes, Carrie Aarons just astounds me. Her talent is growing by leaps and bounds and her ability to make me want to climb inside her worlds and simply just be and never leave shows just how she has become one of my favorite authors. When Stars Burn Out is one magnificent second chance love story.

We all do things in college that we regret. We go to the wrong parties. We hang with the wrong people. We lust after people who are so very bad for us. We get our hearts broken. We trash our reputations. And then college ends and we have to go forward, strive to be the people we are meant to be. Learn from the past and endeavor never to be who we were before. All of that sums up Paxton Shaw and Demi Rosen.

He was the all star football player headed to an amazing NFL career. She was the girl pulled into his world but he only wanted her when he wanted her. To say he was a user and a complete jerk (I would use a much stronger word) is an understatment. But to Demi he was everything. When he called, she came running and the harder she tried to bring him closer the more he pushed to stay away. Until one day he left without a word, ignored the texts and became the NFL’s hottest and most beloved player. Fast forward eight years and Demi Rosen has reinvented herself. She has become a very successful businesswoman. Her specialty? Granting the wishes of severely ill children and low and behold, one very special boy with one very special wish brings Pax and Demi back together again. Only this time, Pax knows he has everything to lose if he messes up his second chance to get the girl.

This story was so real for me. College was eye opening and as a twenty something, you live in your own head and in your own bubble never really thinking that want you say and do will change someone for good or for bad. Pax changed Demi. He broke not only her heart, he hardened it. He had work to do to get through Demi’s defenses. Their story captured my heart, enthralled me and made me root for their happy ending. I didn’t want to like Pax. He was the typical big headed jock that believed the world revolved around him, but wow… what a man he became once he got out of his own way. Demi is one of the strongest characters I have ever read. She knows her flaws. She recognizes her mistakes. She owns her life and her decisions. Through all of that she loves Pax. There’s no denying that.

Beautifully written and ridiculously romantic. Emotional, honest -sometimes brutally so – and just a love story that I wanted to read again as soon as I was done. I laughed and I cried, too. This is a story of redemption, forgiveness and finding your own special star. Well done, Carrie. Your star certainly shines in this tale.

5starlips-1.jpg
When Stars Burn Out Teaser 3
FB_IMG_1494244628116.jpg

Stars die in one of two ways.

So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.

But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.

And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.

She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

Review – Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

Birthday-Girl-EBOOK

Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



”Time passes by you like a bullet … Don’t doubt yourself, don’t second-guess, don’t let fear hold you back, don’t be lazy, and don’t base your decisions on how happy it will make others. Just go for it, okay?”

For three years, I’ve quietly hoarded Pen Douglas’ books on my kindle, books remaining in the dark, intending to read them, and, regrettably, never doing so UNTIL NOW. Until I decided to finally to bring Penelope Douglas’ words to the light. Until I picked up Birthday Girl and COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. Until I realized how the power of Penelope Douglas’ words pulled me in—line by line and feel by feel—where they tugged my heart and splashed my soul across the pages. Until I finally realized what I’ve been missing.

BIRTHDAY GIRL… JUST WOW, WOW, WOW! Birthday Girl is the most sumptuous of slow burns, A BURNING INTENSITY felt everywhere! It’s a HEADY HIT of FORBIDDEN PLEASURE that pierces straight to the core. MY BODY TINGLED at the tension that taunted me, holding me in its grasp, tension so thick you could cut it with a knife. I ATE UP that angst, every last delicious drop.

Birthday Girl Teaser

Fear and longing, turmoil and need.

We want it, but we know we shouldn’t.

I loved the slow-burning plot that was UTTERLY ENGAGING and paced to perfection. The characters have charisma in spades and were so compelling—drawing me into their story deeply—that I fell hard for them. This melt-worthy hero OWNED me. Pike is a hot god with a heart of gold. So sexy and all alpha. Just YES! Jordan is the perfect pairing with Pike, a beauty who is wise and witty. Their chemistry was palpable and the build-up of their romance had me on edge! I was almost UNGLUED. OH SO GOOD!

”I want you to want me.”

Birthday Girl Teaser 2

Heart-stopping sexy meets pulse-pounding pleasure in a tale that is TABOO TO THE MAX. Birthday Girl is one SCORCHING HOT HIGH!
This forbidden love story is a SLOW SEDUCTION in words. Oh was I wholeheartedly seduced! Hook. Line. Sinker. Penelope Douglas takes you on a tantalizingly taboo, thriller of a ride that bleeds angst and renders you breathless where you’re begging for more Birthday Girl. I was so DRUNK ON BIRTHDAY GIRL. I LOVED EVERYTHING about Birthday Girl, a BANG-UP BOOK! So much LOVE. I. NEED. MORE!

”If I know you want it, too, how will I be able to resist you?”

JORDAN

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.

I have to stop this. It can’t happen.

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one.

I am.

PIKE

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.

And her boyfriend’s father.  

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.

*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.

Pike and Jordan get back late from mudding and are hosing off in the backyard.

JORDAN

I drop the hose to my side and drag the fingers of my left hand down his abs, my heart pounding so hard it hurts. They tighten as my nails slide across the muscles, and I’m so afraid to look at him.

This is wrong. I know it’s wrong.

But God, he feels good. I can feel his eyes on me, and every thread of my bra is chafing my skin, and I just want to be bare right now. I want him to see me.

I close my eyes. Oh, God.

“Jordan…” He grasps my hand, and I can hear him breathing hard.

I nod, opening my eyes but still unable to meet his. “I know,” I breathe out. “I’m sorry.”

I’m parched, my eyes sting with tears and I don’t know why, and there’s a need between my thighs that is almost painful.

Slowly, he tips my chin up. I finally raise my gaze, but he’s not looking at me, either. His eyes are cast down, and his brow is pinched in pain. “You’re just out of sorts,” he says quietly. “You miss Cole, and I just happen to be here. It’s okay.”

I remain still, my fingers still on his stomach and his hand still on my chin. His chest moves up and down, and for a moment, I think I’m going to turn tail and run. He’s making excuses for me. An easy one to hide behind. It would make sense I’m feeling lost and in need of someone else to escape into.

But what’s his excuse. I know he looks at me. I know he does it when he thinks I don’t see it, but I do.

My eyes sting, filling with tears. “That’s not why I was apologizing,” I tell him.

I raise my eyes, meeting his, and while I’m afraid, I have to dive. I can’t hold back.

“I’m sorry, because,” I whisper shakily, “this isn’t the first time I wanted you to touch me.”

And his gaze freezes on me.

He holds my eyes, unmoving except for the rise and fall of his chest, and I have no idea what’s going through his head right now, but I don’t think I’m sorry. No more excuses that this is about me being distraught over Cole.

The attraction was already there.

He slowly lets his fingers fall from my chin, both of his hands balling into fists, and he clenches his jaw, suddenly looking angry.

On reflex, I take a step back, but I don’t get any farther. Grabbing my waist, he hauls me into him, snaking an arm round me and gripping my jaw in his hand between his thumb and four fingers. I gasp, loving the feeling of his body hard against mine but scared, too, because he looks so mad.

“No,” he growls, baring his teeth and looking at me with fury in his eyes. “Do you understand? It’s not happening. You’re not getting that from me.”

Tears fills my eyes, and I can barely see him anymore as my body shakes with a silent sob.

His arm is like steel around me, and I can feel the heat of his rage coming off his skin.

He shakes me. “You wanna get laid, then you go hunt somewhere else.”

I suck in air and twist away from him, pushing his body away.

He’s right. What am I doing? Why would I do that? I feel so stupid, and I crouch down, quickly gathering up my shirt and shoes.

But I wasn’t imagining it, was I? There was something between us, and it was coming from him as much as from me. Did I just see what I wanted to see?

I want to scream. Tears stream down my face, and he still just stands there, glaring at me.

“Go to your room,” he orders.

I break out in a laugh, the bitter sound dripping with disbelief. “Go fuck yourself!” I stand up, hardening my voice. “I’ll find another bed tonight, thank you. Anyone will do for a slut like me, right?”

I whip around and run for the back door, but he grabs the inside of my elbow and hauls me back into the wall of his chest. I drop my shirt and shoes, and he forces us forward into the wall of the house. I shoot out my hands, crashing into the siding.

Jesus.

I shake, sucking in short, shallow breaths as my heart races and my blood runs hot under my skin.

What the…

He reaches around, taking my face in his hand and his hot breath in my ear. “Don’t threaten me with shit like that. If you want to act like a brat, then maybe you should get grounded like one, huh?”

I almost laugh through the tears drying on my face. “By all means,” I taunt. “I’m dying to see how you try to take control of me. You can’t even get Cole to do his chores, and when was the last time a woman got hot in your bed? You’re not even a man.”

He growls and slams his palm into the house in front of me.

I jump.

And the next thing I know, his hand is in my hair, and my head is being twisted to the side as his lips crash down on mine.

REVIEW – Needing Him by Kennedy Fox

Needing Him by Kennedy Fox

I just read my FAVE Kennedy Fox book so far!!!!

I legitimately LOVED everything about this story. It has super hot, intense chemistry. EPIC enemies to lovers, angsty feels and super sweet & swoony butterfly inducing moments!

Evan & Emily are INCREDIBLE. Seriously people the TENSION between these two is OFF THE CHAIN. The whole enemies to lovers vibe in Needing Him is one of the best I’ve read! Honestly Evan is an arse. But I LOVED HIM! He has that alpha dominance to him too that will make you sizzle inside. The connection with Emily is instant, but I’m not talking instalove, I mean just an intense connection that shoots from the pages and takes control of everything inside you. I can’t stop thinking about them and loving them and just wanting more!

These Bishop Brothers are TO DIE FOR. I love reading books within a series that layers everything together. Kennedy Fox are building a world here that I just LOVE to be in. The side characters and additional cast really add definition to this book and ultimately UP the story by 100%. All of it works insanely well. Each book is a standalone but for the full reading experience read in order. I promise, you won’t regret it!!!

Introducing book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor.
Hardass, brooding, and all business.

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor.
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor.

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night.

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.
