Review – Rock Solid by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

CPEWRockSolidCover5x8_BW_MEDIUM

Review graphic

Wow, the amazing duo of Phillips and Wilde has written another brilliant series that makes me beg for just one more story. Just one more, ladies! But if the Book Boyfriends have to end, what better way to go out than with the delicious Connor Prescott!

No one ever wants to be stuck in an airport due to inclement weather. Especially on a holiday. So when Connor finds himself stranded in the Denver airport he decides to make the best of his situation. He never expected to be spending his night with a beautiful stranger who he feels an instant connection to. The beautiful girl with the sad eyes and a sorry excuse of an ex-boyfriend. His loss was certainly  Connor’s gain,  at least for Valentine’s Night. Katie Kaswell never expected a surprise trip to Denver would leave her not only brokenhearted but stranded at the airport. But a seriously sexy stranger may just be the cure for the blues. One night of sensual surrender — no last names and no strings attached. But much like Connor, Katie feels a connection so immediate and so strong that it scares her. The morning sun finds Connor alone and Katie running as far and as fast as she can from the beautiful stranger.

Fast forward three years and who would have guessed one night of nameless passion could change two people’s lives forever when one very special little girl named Valentine makes her way into Connor’s life?

This second chance romance with a side of the best surprise ever was a fun, heartwarming read. Of all the Book Boyfriends, Connor was the one that I was most eager to read about and know his story. He’s protective and a bit of a unicorn – he’s a one woman man. For three years he’s held onto one perfect evening. Nothing could quite hold a candle to one Valentine’s Night in Denver. Katie has had her fair share of heartbreaks, insecurities and loneliness. In her life she has had only two things that mean everything – her daughter and Connor. Their love story was rocky but worth the pain and gives you the hope that insta-love can happen and that a once in a lifetime chance can end so beautifully.

Another GREAT series! Bravo, Carly and Erika!

synopsis.jpg

Connor Prescott doesn’t do one night stands (yes, ladies, he’s an anomaly) so when he meets a beautiful woman during a snowed in night at the airport who wants to forget her heartache, he makes an exception. Their night together is incendiary, and by morning Connor wants more . . . except his sexy stranger is gone. He’s pretty sure he’ll never see her again, until three and a half years later she finds him, and changes his entire world with three little words . . . You’re a daddy.

Review – Perfect Match by Lila Monroe

Cover

Perfect Match by Lila Monroe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lila Monroe has created the perfect light, laugh-out-loud, and oh-so-lovable romance again! Sex in the City meets Match.com in Perfect Match, a fresh and flirty romantic comedy that is as sweet as it is sexy. This is a guaranteed smile-on-the face story!

The hot and heartbreaking hero, Jack, is one you’ll both love but loathe at times. Hot, arrogant, shrewd, compassionate, and caring, kind, and temperamental, this is one billionaire Brit you still have to LOVE!!! Who doesn’t appreciate a hot bloke with a British accent?!?

Jack was fine with playing the field until a beautiful matchmaker encroached his territory. 

He’s got a Sexy British accent— -of course he does. Why shouldn’t he hit every “panty-melting” criterion there is?

Beautiful McKenna is out to prove she has what it takes to elevate her revolutionary matchmaking app, one that could knock the dating world off its axis. I adored and admired this heroine as McKenna is tough and tenacious.

When Jack and McKemna end up partnering together, sparks fly. Their intense connection is PALPABLE, their banter both playful and passionate. Together, they were MAGNETIC!!! 

“It’s that moment when you look at a person, and they look back at you, and you know they’re in that moment with you.”

This SLOW BURN of a story had me ON EDGE, awaiting a love connection with angst and anticipation. The push and pull was HEADY, a force that made my head spin. The sexual tension lit me on fire. I wanted to shove this heroine and hero together so many times! 

Desire. He feels it too, right there in the air between us.

When a hero is about to bolt but does a one-eighty, changing his mind, and takes that risk, kissing her in a kiss with the power of a thousand winds, that is HERO GOLD!!! Freaking kryptonite!!!

“F**k it.” Before I can even react, he closes the distance between us and kisses me, hard.

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

“I can’t wait to hear you come for me.”

Holy hot!!! You can’t help but think this hot Brit’s blazing and breathless-inducing words are for you. That mouth on Jack…just YES!!! 

“Let go. I’ve got you.”

Perfect Match is fun, flirty, fire-hot, and a feel-good romance guaranteed to make the heart dance.This story is so well-written—witty writing infused with humor and heart in all the write places—with a natural feel that sucks you in and keeps you wanting more. Perfect Match is a match made in heaven.

synopsis.jpg

I have sixty days to make this maverick billionaire fall in love… with somebody else!

Jack Callahan has the hottest smile in tech. And as for his ass…ets – well, there’s a reason he’s the biggest playboy in town. But thanks to douche-bro investors and my snake of a college nemesis (don’t ask), he’s also my last shot to take my new dating app from kick-ass idea to world-conquering, million-dollar reality.

There’s just one problem: he doesn’t believe you can make a program for love.

With my future on the line, I set him a challenge: if I can use the app to find his soulmate, he’ll invest in my company. Simple, right?

Wrong.

It turns out, Jack’s cocky attitude pushes my buttons – in all the sexiest, most infuriating ways. My research tells me he’s the absolute worst guy in the world for me… so why can’t I keep my hands off him?

And with my deadline approaching fast, how will I choose between my big break – or a broken heart?

Find out in the latest laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

Review – The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

1001 Dark Nights cover The Bed Mate

The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes the best things come in small packages. Sometimes what lacks in length may be full of depth. Sometimes a little story delivers a lot. Kendall Ryan’s latest sensation is a short story, The Bed Mate, but oh did this little tale DELIVER BIG-TIME! The Bed Mate is a FEEL-GOOD friends-to-lovers romance that makes the heart dance all the way to Cloud Nine!!!

Hands down, when I began The Bed Mate, it was INSTANT LOVE!!! The witty writing, believable plot, compelling and charming characters, and overall fairytale feel of this romance were EVERYTHING!!! I was BEGUILED!!! The Bed Mate latched onto my heart and never let go.

Gorgeous Sam and beautiful Maggie are best friends, always there for one another. Anywhere. Anytime. Any place. Until one weekend. Until one weekend crosses the friendship line and the friend zone is an open field of pent-up passion and possibilities.

Okay, so yeah, he was sexy. That was a no brainer.

A handsome man with a good muscular build putting his shirt on

GAH!!! Hot. Sexy. Sweet. Caring. Protective. Sam is the ULTIMATE PRINCE CHARMING!!!

Perhaps when the stars align and Sam and Maggie find themselves suddenly single, these friends were meant to be more.

We just fit together. We always had. Like we were fated to be.

Picture2

The Bed Mate is a friends-to-lovers fairytale fused by fate with FIRE and FEELS!!! This hero and heroine are magical together! I was ENRAPTURED with this love story. SO UTTERLY DREAMY!!!

Don’t judge this book by its steamy title as The Bed Mate is so SWEET and SWOONY! The off-the-charts chemistry, the pent-up passion, the promise of more, the love that was buried but brought to life, the sweetness, the swoon, and heart and soul make The Bed Mate the PERFECT ROMANCE. ROMANCE BLISS!!! Just YES!!! Kendall Ryan has written her most ROMANTIC ROMANCE yet!!! ALL THE SWEET SIGHS!!! ALL THE SWEET STARS!!! 

”What do you want, Maggie?”

“You, Sam. Always you.”

💋💋💋💋💋 feel-good kisses

synopsis.jpg

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Room Mate series… 

I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life’s been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.

Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy’s skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before. 

She’s beautiful and doesn’t know it, she’s funny without even trying, and now she’s suddenly single for the first time in forever. 

Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my … other parts … all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie’s torn. 

Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I’ve ever had for a shot at something more?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

FB_IMG_1494244623114

I said a silent prayer of thanks to Ben, Jerry, and Jose Cuervo as I blearily made my way to Sam’s bedroom. He hadn’t bothered to make his bed before he left this morning, but I didn’t mind.

Instead, I snuggled into the space where I knew he slept, breathing in deep so I could smell his shampoo on the pillow, and closed my eyes. Sam would never do what Trevor had done to me.

Never.

I drifted off to sleep for what felt like roughly three seconds before I woke up to find my thigh vibrating and the late morning sun streaming through the window.

“What the…” I sat up, rubbing my eye with one hand as I grappled down into the sheets where my cell phone rested. I found ten missed calls—seven from Trevor, three from Sam.

Sliding my thumb over Sam’s name, I called him back and pressed the phone to my ear.

“Hello?” I asked, my voice cracked and groggy.

“It’s eleven there,” he said.

“Yeah, yep. I knew that,” I said, trying to make my voice sound less like it had just gone through a wood chipper.

“So why are you still asleep?” he asked.

“I’m not allowed to sleep in?” I asked lightly, the pounding in my head making me a little nauseous with its intensity.

“No. You never do. What’s going on?”

He sounded suspicious and for a moment I fought with myself over whether to tell him the truth. One way or another, he was going to get it out of me; he knew me too well for me to lie to him for long.

“Look, could I stay at your place while you’re away?” I asked.

“What? Why? Did something happen to your apartment?” he demanded, the worry clear in his voice.

“No, nothing like that. I just… I need a break for a couple of days.”

“That’s not cryptic or anything,” Sam scoffed.

I sucked in my cheeks. Okay, here we go. Like a Band-Aid.

“I need to be someplace where Trevor can’t find me.”

Review – Crank by Adriana Locke

Crank Ebook Cover

Review graphic

Oh, Adriana Locke has done it again! How she makes us fall head over boots for these incredible families the world may never know. If Crank and Walker Gibson are any indication The Gibson Boys are very seriously going to give that family from Savannah — I think they are the Landrys? — a run for their money as a fan favorite. So so sorry Lincoln. Nah, not sorry at all!

Walker is a hard working blue collar guy. He’s a mechanic, a man of his word. He loves his family and takes pride in his business. Still Walker is a broken man doing his best to hide his hurt, anger and pain behind a stoic attitude and a shuttered soul. All that changes when a girl from Savannah decides to use his truck for batting practice. His life will never be the same after Sienna Landry enters the doors of his auto shop, Crank.

Sienna Landry is considered Savannah royalty coming from a politically powerful family. Still she never felt that she fit in with the high achieving Landry clan. A talented designer and risk taker, Sienna packs her bags and heads to Illinois to take a chance on a dream and move out from the shadow of her overprotective family. Never would she have expected that trying to fix a mistake would lead her on the road to a soul deep love, heartbreak, a healthy dose of angst and another amazing family that she could call her own.

Walker and Sienna are poplar opposites. She’s Manolo’s and he’s Timberland’s. She’s five star meals and he’s burgers and beer. She’s spend now and he’s frugal because he has to be. They are perfect for each other. Still their love and relationship is not without struggles, doubts and insecurities. The past was never far behind and it had the potential to destroy something that could be everything. But these two have a chemistry that burned from their first meeting and only got hotter as their story developed. I couldn’t help but to fall in love with the sexy mechanic and his brooding soulful self. Sienna reminded me that just because the girl came from royalty didn’t mean she had to wear the crown. Being a commoner isn’t so bad when the prize is Walker Gibson.

This story had me from the very beginning in much the same way that Written In The Scars did. The Walkers are the real people. They are the family in your own neighborhood. Hard workers. God, family and Sunday dinners at Grandmother’s house. They share their hurts and worries and cheer on the high school football team at state championships. I felt this story in my heart and it reminded me that I am that small town girl trying hard to make the community proud. Crank is a wonderful beginning to another series that I’m going to love and devour from Adriana. This is family with all its beauty and frailties, amazing best friends, and a Nana that makes the best comfort food ever.

Fantastic, Addy!

Crank Teaser 1

synopsis.jpg

This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of.

As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.

The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.

He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in?

The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.

Crank is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

“Have you forgotten already?” he whispers.
“Forgotten what?”
“That I’ve been inside you.”
I grip the wooden rung screwed into the tree as if I’m ready to climb. It’s really so I don’t sag against him. His words fire through my veins and singe my vessels, landing in one contorted mass at the apex of my thighs.
“And we saw what happened after that,” I volley back. 
He bristles beside me. Clean, un-Walker-filled air swallows my personal space and I instantly hate it. My body begs to fall back towards him, to feel the energy that buzzes between us when he’s near, but I don’t dare.
Instead, I put one foot on the bottom rung and look at him over my shoulder. He’s watching me with intense, broody eyes, his bottom lip pinched between his teeth.
“Close your eyes, Gibson. I’d hate for you to see what you’ve been missing.”
With a light head and clattering heart, I work my way up the pseudo-ladder. I don’t look down. I show no fear. And even more importantly, I show no weakness.

Review – Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

23130590_1501119449985118_1288414903612263740_n

Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first met Amie and Lex in Shacking Up and again in Eye Candy (Hello, Gladiator Lex), I knew their story was one I NEEDED like air to breathe. The initial flirting, playful banter, and sexual tension was an instant HIGH. After a small hit, I had to have MORE. I also had to know if justice would be served to the A-man with the small pencil down below. Spoiler alert: The sweet justice dished out to the anti-hero A, was the icing on the cake.

Like little brother, Bane, Lexington ‘Lex’ is ALL ALPHA. A god. He so smokin’ hot and with a big heart!!! This melt-worthy man OWNS ME for life. Just YES!!! Lex is HERO PERFECTION, a lethal mix of hotness and heart that will have you wishing for a hook up with him.

”It’s okay, baby, I get it. know I’m irresistible.”

Amie is back and not the controlled and refined woman she was before. She is a full-on firecracker ready to take back her life! I ADORED her!!! Amie is a sassy and smart beauty, a heroine you’d want as your bestie.

Still nursing wounds from a wreck of a relationship, Amie is out to rediscover herself, recover the old Amie who valued herself most and lived, laughed, and had fun.

One night and it could have been Lex. It always should have been Lex. It should have been the man made for Amie. 

I missed my chance before but maybe now I can be part of what helps put her back together.

Collision after collision has Lex and Amie together again. It’s as if a force is pulling them, a strong tide. A force of fate.

”I can only behave myself for so long.”

Maybe I don’t want you to behave.”

23270308_1504159183014478_8575864469408181648_o

This hero and heroine EXPLODE TOGETHER!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE. Their passion is PALPABLE. Their union is UNSTOPPABLE!!! I felt their chemistry steam off the pages, a blaze of fire that burnt me everywhere!!! 

I crush my mouth to Amelie’s…It’s not a very coordinated kiss. It’s messy and teeth-clashing. It’s want and need. It’s possession. Hers and mine.

Together, Lex and Amie were so MAGICAL!!!This hero and heroine are fused by FATE, making their story even more special. These two were created for each other. I loved them both so much!

”Tell me you don’t feel this pull.”

Hooking Up is heart-stopping sexy meets saucy and sweet—a romance you’ll want to hook up with NOW!! This story is a sensual SLOW BURN that blazed though me everywhere! I was ENRAPTURED!!! Hooking Up HIJACKED ME from the start, quickly becoming a HIGH, one I felt the whole time reading. I LOVED this romance fused by fate, bathed in blazing heat, and felt with love. I felt the POWERFUL PULL of Hooking Up so hard, a story I couldn’t put down. Hooking Up is ALL THAT and MORE!!!

💋💋💋💋💋 hot and heartfelt ‘Sexy Lexy’ kisses

synopsis.jpg

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

Review – Scandalous by LJ Shen

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Forget the top read of the year.
Forget the top read of the month.

Scandalous by LJ Shen is the TOP READ of my LIFE. 

I have never read a book like this before. I have never been so addicted to a book before, while it engraved itself in my BLOOD. Scandalous swam through me, pulsed through the deepest parts of me and sent me to a WHOLE other world. 

THIS is how a book should be written.

THIS is how a book should be delivered. 

THIS is how a book should make you feel. 

THIS is how it’s fucking DONE! 

The Sinners of Saint series is without doubt one of the best series out there. LJ has a way with words that just attack the mind, body and soul. She’s also the BEST at writing really hot, alpha males that we shouldn’t really like very much, aka Hotholes. In Scandalous though, for me, she wrote one of her most formidable HotHoles yet, with her BEST writing to date.

I felt WAYYYY too much reading this book, so much so, that it’s impossible to put WHAT I actually felt into proper words that make sense, but I’m gonna try. It made me CRAZY. ADDICTED. OBSESSED. As words coursed through my veins, emotion clogged my throat, and angst, angst ripped apart my heart and demolished my soul. Cover to cover my whole body was TINGLING. My stomach was TIGHT and yet, somehow, FLUTTERING, uncontrollably. My heart, SCREAMING, ACHING, POUNDING. OWNED. 

Scandalous, is raw, gritty, fierce and chock full of filthy, forbidden lust, hottttt, intense passion and need. #thatfirstkisstho! Trent and Edie are ugly and raw and filthy, yet somehow utterly irresistible. (Yes I borrowed a line, it makes so much sense). Their connection is OFF THE CHAIN. They are an explosion, their push and pull, dangerous but all consuming! I fell for them both, together and as individuals. They rocked my world.

There isn’t really anything more I can say at this point bar, read it! If you’re looking for a book that will hook you, grip your heart and soul, steal your breath, while it sets you on fire, then this is your book. If you’re looking for a book written stunningly with seamless perfection, and so much creativeness, this is your book. If you’re looking to be owned and all together consumed by the best book EVER, then this, THIS RIGHT HERE, is your book! There will never be enough stars to ever do this book justice. They simply don’t accommodate for books as breathtaking and as brilliant as this. It’s most definitely, one of a kind!

They call him The Mute for a reason.

Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.

When he does, it’s with disdain.

When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.

When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.

He is thirty-three.

I am eighteen.

He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.

I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.

He’s emotionally unavailable.

And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.

Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.

And yet, I can’t stay away.

A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.

And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.

Review – The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

My rating: 6 of 5 stars


”The harder you love, the harder you fall.”

Sometimes you don’t have to read but a few lines or pages of a story to fall hard in love. When you end the first and last chapters of a tale in tears, tears that remain etched in your eyes the whole time reading, you know you’ve met your emotional match. Meghan Quinn’s The Other Brother was MY EMOTIONAL MATCH. Edge to edge. Feel to feel.

I have a WEAKNESS for second-chance love stories and I didn’t have to read but a few minutes for The Other Brother to OWN ME!!! Heart. Soul. Mind. All taken by this thief of a story. The Other Brother, this second-chance romance full of fire and feels, was my soulmate. My kryptonite. So perfect. SO PERFECT FOR ME.

From the minute I was reunited with Aaron, AKA ‘Smalls,’ in The Other Brother, he HAD ME…ALL OF ME. This gorgeous man, so beautiful and broken, broke me while holding my heart in his hands. Aaron is the perfect man—gorgeous, witty, sweet, brooding, broken, sexy, strong, and so caring. What I love the most about this hero is his vulnerability. I fell so HARD for this amazing alpha whose heart is as beautiful as the man himself.

Sometimes couples need to grow separately before they come back together. 

She was my rock, the one solid feature in my life. She was also my downfall.

Amelia is beautiful, sassy, and smart. When she returns to her hometown, she never expected to collide with her first love, Aaron. Aaron broke her heart once and she finally put the pieces together.

”I’ve chosen to forget about it . . . forget about you.”

These words CRUSHED ME, bursting hope like a popped balloon, as I hoped these soulmates would reconnect.

Can she feel how fast my heart is beating? Can she tell how much she still owns me?

I SHATTERED, breaking from these heartbreaking words. Words that pierced my heart. Words that shot straight to my soul. Words that meant so much. Aaron TOOK MY TEARS and STOLE MY HEART!!! I felt his heartbreak, emphasized with his struggles, and knew this man was everything!!!

I never got over him. I don’t think I ever will.

Sometimes love wasn’t sure to sustain the first time. Sometimes love needs a second chance as it wasn’t ready the first time. 

”I feel this pull between us. It’s real.”

I felt this pull too, this hero and heroines’ IMPENETRABLE CONNECTION, so caring and combustible. The passion penetrates between Amelia and Aaron, as their love is still raw and real. A love that never died. 

”You’re so confident,” I state, trying to calm my racing heart.

“I am. For once in my life, I’m sure of one thing. You’re mine.”

Oh Aaron! This is a hero who life constantly knocks down but keeps persevering, never giving up and I greatly admired his perseverance. Aaron has a beautiful soul, one as stunning as he is inside and out. If only Aaron would see his value, the light through the dark, the light that is Amelia, his shining star who has guided him for a lifetime.

”I’m not very good at seeing my worth.”

“I see the worth in you.”

I LOVED Amelia and Aaron together, and LOVED their story soooo hard! This couple felt REAL and their story is RELATABLE, as if their story could really happen, and that makes The Other Brother even more special. This tale of first love, the kind from soulmates, the one you root for to last forever, had me rooting for this couple to last a lifetime.

Megan Quinn has, hands-down, written her BEST BOOK YET: The Other Brother !!! This is one of my FAVORITE SECOND-CHANCE ROMANCES EVER!!! The Other Brother’s writing is PHENOMENAL: a magnetic mix of swoon and sorrow infused with hits of humor in a second-chance story woven in love. HEARTFELT MAGIC!!! I’m sorry Racer and Tucker, but Smalls delivered the biggest!!! With a broken hero with a beautiful soul and the strong and stunning woman who heals him, this story is a storm that strikes the soul!!! The hero and heroine were carved for each other like this soul-slaying second-chance romance was for me.

The Other Brother, this love story with all the heart that stole my heart, is EVERYTHING!!! This tale of broken love TOUCHED ME SO HARD!!! Words…mere WORDS…rendered me so full of FEELS where I still felt and am feeling everything long after the story has stopped. There are not enough words and not enough stars to capture my love for this emotionally-woven, second-chance romance…MY KRYPTONITE. The Other Brother is HEART-POUNDING PERFECTION!!!

A TOP 2017 read!!! 

💋💋💋💋💋💋 all of the first-love kisses

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

 

FB_IMG_1494244623114

Right on time, I’m impressed.

She doesn’t get out of her car right away, so I give her a second but then realize maybe she’s not exiting the vehicle because I have the key to the house and she has nowhere to go.

Wanting to make a good impression and seem approachable since I’m the property manager, I run my hand through my hair and adjust my jeans. I’m not wearing any fancy shit, but at least I don’t have holes in or paint stains on my clothes. I hop off my front porch and make my way toward her car, slowly, not wanting to scare her.

There is muffling coming from her car, voices I can’t quite hear, but I get the idea she’s finishing up a conversation, so I slow my pace drastically. That’s when I see her tilt her head down and look at me. From the reflection of the light off her windows, I can’t make out her features. I can only see a silhouette.

I lift a friendly hand in her direction to let her know I come in peace and make my way to her driveway. There is no wave back, but I do hear the telltale sound of her opening her car door. She steps out and when I round the vehicle, I catch the sun off her driver’s side window, temporarily blinding me.

Blinking my eyes a few times to calm my retinas, I bring her into focus.

“Aaron . . .”

Every hair on my body sticks straight up and my body goes still from that voice, that unmistakably sultry voice.

When she finally comes into view, I am met with a pair of hazel eyes I haven’t been able to get out of my head since the day she left town for bigger and better things.

“Amelia.” I clear my throat and take a step forward. “Wow, I uh . . .” Tongue-tied, that’s exactly what I am right now. “Didn’t expect to see you get out of that car.” I laugh nervously while I pull on the back of my neck, trying to comprehend what’s going on. I point with my thumb toward the house and ask, “You’re the new tenant?”

She nods and looks me over, taking her time with her perusal, her eyes burning a hole right through my clothes like they used to. When her eyes meet mine again, she asks, “You’re the property manager?”

I nod and swallow hard. “And neighbor.”

She presses her lips together, thinning them out. “What are the chances?” She laughs nervously.

“Yeah, especially since I thought your life was in the city.” I didn’t mean for that to come out rude, but it did. Gentling my voice, I ask, “What brings you back home?”

Staring at the ground, clutching her purse to her side, she says, “My dad. He’s, uh, not doing well.” Duh, Mrs. Ferguson mentioned something like that. I’m so damn overwhelmed and shocked right now though, that entire conversation I had with Mrs. Ferguson is not registering in my mind.

“Oh no.” My brow pinches together in concern. “What happened?”

She waves me off. “Nothing you need to worry about.” And just like that she shuts me down. Honestly, I’m surprised she said that much to me after how we ended things between us.

Yes, there was an us, a perfectly beautiful, love-filled us. Amelia Santos was the best thing to ever happen to me, and yet, she was also the worst. During a time where my heart broke from every uncaring glance from my mom, Amelia resurrected me from the ashes I would have otherwise drowned in. She was my rock, the one solid feature in my life.

She was also my downfall.

She was going places, and I wasn’t. She had opportunity, and I had none. She wanted me to move with her, and I couldn’t, but no way in hell would I hold her back. I barely made it out of my mom’s house. There were many days when I tried hard to earn a buck so I could find a place to live other than the homeless shelter where I spent many lonely nights. Amelia deserved better than that, so I pushed her away to achieve her dreams. Little did I know, breaking up with her would send me in the biggest downward spiral of my life. The only reason I’m the man I am today is because after hitting rock bottom, I knew things needed to change, and it was up to me to make something of myself. So I worked my ass off. And now at thirty, I can say proudly that I’m a co-owner of an up-and-coming construction company as well as the proud owner of a house in the heart of Hillcrest, a beautiful two-story house. I’m doing well for myself . . . at least that’s what I thought until Amelia stepped out of her car.

Now I’m questioning every little thing about my life leading to this point.

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
FB_IMG_1494244628116

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.
