Review – Trust by Kylie Scott

Trust by Kylie Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When you read a book that BLASTS through you like countless cannons catapulting your heart, you want to scream it…it being Trust by Kylie Scott…to the world. I’m SCREAMING: “Trust me, you NEED to become one with Kylie Scott’s latest phenomenon, Trust! This book is so brilliant and bloody badass (I’m not a Brit but that sounded cool.) and, dare I say, divergent that I applaud this author for delivering the different.

Trust is UNIQUE…unlike any book I’ve ever read. This is not a story but an EDGE-OF-YOUR SEAT EXPERIENCE. Trust is an ADRENALINE-FILLED ADVENTURE where I ate up every word while feeling every emotion. 

Beautiful Edie has survived several forms of hell as a teen, her young life full of obstacles that would set most teen girls back. 

I had no fucks to give.


Bold, brave, and badass, I adored this young woman who is a survivor thanks to a gorgeous dark knight, John.

One night took an 18-yr-old boy and a 17-yr-old girl from strangers to fated friends.
One night altered their lives’ paths.
One night almost resulted in their end.
One night changed them forever. 


There was something inevitable about his presence, as if we were bound somehow.


John, high school heartthrob and troublemaker with a capital T, I pictured this young rebel as James Dean. Oh did I love this hot guy with a huge heart!

He was beautiful and I … I was nothing.


I BROKE!!!! My heart sank for Edie who thinks she is not beautiful or worthy of John. Edie and John’s connection starts as friends brought together by fate, but their union is deeper…bigger. They are MAGICAL together, with a MAGNETIC PULL deeper than chemistry…so much MORE.

He kissed me slow and sweet. It seemed endless, as necessary to life as breathing.


John make me MELT like an ice cream cone on a hot summer day!!! Edie and John forge a BEAUTIFUL BOND, one of two bold and big-hearted young adults, thrown together by tragedy but likely destiny.


“You’re here?”

“Yeah.”

“Why?”

“Because this is where you are,” he said, as if it were obvious.

I had nothing.



Trust ENAMORED ME, this WHIRLWIND of POWER and PASSION wrapped itself around me where I couldn’t stop reading. I was BREATHLESS from this book that buzzes with excitement and emotion. I could not help but be ALL IN…FULL THROTTLE!!! Trust quickly morphed into a romance-thriller movie playing in my head. The writing is woven with detail so deeply that I FELT EVERY WORD … oh did I FEEL!!! Trust is a story NOT JUST FELT but LIVED. You can’t help but live this story along with the characters Kylie Scott so vividly brings to life.

Trust is an EXHILARATING and EMOTIONALLY-ENTWINED love story. Trust is bravery and beauty both inside and out. Trust is IMPERFECTLY PERFECT. Trust is SO MUCH MORE.

Like books, we often judge people by their covers. Too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, too light, too dark. We look at the exterior without getting to know the far more superior interior. Trust is about what’s inside. Trust is about saying f**k judgement, f**k what others think, just live life right and just be you. Rise above but never let those treat you like you’re down below.

If I could describe Trust by Kylie Scott in one line, it would be THIS!!!

>>> As tender as it is thrilling, Trust is a raw and riveting roller coaster of a romance, a story of love, loss, and life. <<<

UNSTOPPABLE. UNPUTDOWNABLE. UNFORGETTABLE. Trust is not ordinary but EXTRAORDINARY. I LOVED every ounce of Trust!!! Trust is a story that hits the heart and stays with the soul long after the last page, a romance where love is inevitable and life is valuable. ❤️

“That’s not how this works.”

“You know how this works?”

“Yeah. We keep trying,” he said simply. “If we really want it, then we don’t give up. That easy.”




💋💋💋💋💋 ‘meant to be’ kisses 

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.
After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. 

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.  

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”

“Bastard.”

“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”

Review- Dr Stanton by TL Swan



My rating is 6 out of 5 but no number is enough!!

There really aren’t enough stars for this book. By far this is the best book I’ve read all year, and I dont say that lightly.

This book was perfect in every way. Am I surprised? NO!  because this author is amazing and I expect nothing less.
Emotional, angsty, sexy, anger, sadness, hate, love. These words describe this book. I literally had pains in my chest at many points throughout this journey. Make sure to have tissues because I ugly cried several times throughout and I don’t do that often. Make sure you have time to sit and read the whole book because I literally just read this rather long and thorough book in one sitting.
Ashley winds up on a date from hell and when a sexy man happens to walk by he is all of a sudden her husband. So they seal the deal many times overnight. She gives him her number and he promises to come to New York next weekend. Those plans are foiled and he loses her for years. Neither of them knew each others names to try to locate each other.

5  years later Ashley make the move to do her final internship under a well known and respected surgeon. What she doesn’t bargain for is that man to be the Dr. Stanton. Now all of her secrets are about to bite her in the butt.

That is all I will give you about the book because there so many twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting. It really is an amazing story.


Cover Design: Hang Le

Release Date: July 20, 2017

Synopsis

If happiness is a gift.

Then Cameron Stanton is my Santa Clause.

I can’t tell you the exact moment I fell in love with him.
Only that I did.

With every glance, every touch, every minute…. he stole a little more of me.

They say that all men are created equal.
Well that’s a blatant lie!

I know because I met Gods gift to women in Vegas,
I pretended he was my husband to get rid of another guy.

He took our fake marriage seriously and it became his personal goal to consummate.

He spoke to me in French and I lied to him in German.
His laughter was addictive.

But I thought what happens in Vegas would stay in Vegas.

Until it didn’t.

Dr. Stanton turned up where I least expected and my lies came back to haunt me.

The attraction is palpable.
The secrets unchangeable.
I need him more than air.

Review – Firefly by Molly McAdams

Firefly by Molly McAdams
My rating: 6 of 5 stars


“Without love, there would be no reason to stand back up and fight. Without love, there would be no reason to live.”



Here I sit hours after reading, still STUNNED SPEECHLESS from Firefly by Molly McAdams, a STUNNING STORY that stole, stripped, and shattered both my heart and soul. It’s as if this story was my perfect match, my soulmate in words. Firefly felt like it was made for me: MY PERFECT STORM.

This story stole my breath, where I was left gasping for air. This story stole my soul, a soul that equally shattered and soared. This story stole my heart, helpless from the words that squeezed out every emotion, but a heart that bled for and beat for this book. Actually, this story didn’t steal a thing. I SURRENDERED my body, breath, heart, soul, and every emotion to Firefly.

>>> TRUTH OR DARE ? <<<

TRUTH: Three lines. Just three lines of this story had me in tears.

Firefly gripped me immediately, chasing my heart and soul like a fierce fire where I fell to the flames. This firestorm of feels was a fight I would not…did not want to win. Firefly lit me up with life, one where every breath matched every breathtakingly beautiful word. Light to light. Dark to dark. Beauty to beauty. Feel to feel. I FELT FIREFLY EVERYWHERE.

>>> TRUTH OR DARE ? <<<

TRUTH: When I ‘met’ the hero and heroine, it was INSTA-LOVE. The characters made me fall in love with them immediately where I rooted for their forbidden romance to fold into love. I felt Lily and Dare’s story where it became mine too.


She glowed so damn bright … and when we were together, it was like setting a dry forest on fire in the dead of night.

Lily is as equally brave as she is beautiful. She is a light in a dark world, one where she doesn’t belong. I loved her strength and admired her courage to risk it all for love.


This connection … it felt as if my soul was screaming — begging — for me to recognize its mate was within reach.


Dare, this dark hero with a huge heart stole my heart! This alpha was my addiction. His pain was mine. Dare set me on fire! My body was on fire while my heart bled. Dare made me SMOLDER and SWOON!!!


“I was made to love you. I just found you in the wrong life.”



I was GUTTED with words that both gripped my heart and tore it apart!!!

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


“How do I feel? Firefly … I’m fucking terrified.”

“Of what?” I asked when the silence became too much.

“You.”


These words stole my breath, bearing down on my heart where it beat and bled for this book.

>>> TRUTH OR DARE ? <<<

DARE: I dare you not to feel this story while reading.


“I would stay until it ends.”

I knew how this would end. We were like fire, but fire never lasts. And when it’s over, devastation is left in its wake.



Firefly is devastatingly beautiful, a book that bleeds heart and hope. I cried a mix of sorrow and swoon. My HEART BLED for this book while my SOUL SHATTERED and SOARED.

My emotions were entangled around every word.

Firefly is a movie that plays in your head while reading. Firefly is a Romeo and Juliette romance with a modern day twist. It’s forbidden love. It’s messy love. It’s PERFECTLY IMPERFECT LOVE. It’s so much love. Oh did I love thee so much!!!

A book that bared its soul to me, Firefly is a TOP 2017 READ!!! Romantic suspense fits Molly McAdams like a glove, so PERFECT! Firefly is FLAWLESS!!! Molly McAdams’ words are poignant poetry that glide across the pages, so smooth and soulful. This incredibly talented writer writes from the heart and you can tell her heart is poured into every beautiful and brilliant word. Her heartfelt writing hits my heart hard like a hurricane EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. EVERY WORD MATTERS. Meaningful. Mesmerizing. Magnificent.

Firefly makes all senses come to life where you can’t help but FEEL ALIVE while reading. Passionately poignant and heartbreakingly beautiful, Firefly lights every feel on fire while slaying the soul. Oh was my SOUL SLAYED by a story that OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME!!! My soul sparked to life like fireflies from the soul-searing story called FIREFLY by Molly McAdams. I was a moth drawn to a fierce and feel-wielding flame; the flame was Firefly. I DARE you not to feel this FIREFLY!!!


I would let my heart be destroyed a thousand times if it meant a thousand more days with him.



🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ‘dare you not to feel’ stars 

View all my reviews

As the Princess of the Irish-American Mob, there’s no shortage of men ready to help guard and protect me. To slowly suffocate me to the point of seeking freedom—a place where I can breathe.

Kieran Hayes has been saving me for as long as I can remember. It’s in his blood, and one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. Until my favorite trait became his biggest flaw, making me resent the man I love. An unwavering warrior, his love for me has been shrouded by those instincts.

Save Lily. Protect Lily. Hide Lily. Cage Lily.

What I wasn’t prepared for was Dare—the man who would set my world on fire with just one touch. He saw straight through to my soul, as though he knew I was desperate for freedom, and silently demanded my heart from the beginning.

And I didn’t expect Dare to be Demitri Borello—the reason for so many deaths in my family. A man who will take my life the moment he finds out who I am.

Despite it all, I’ll love him until that moment comes.

A fire will die if there is no oxygen for it to consume. Ours is rapidly stealing every last breath we can sacrifice to it.

***The Redemption series is a series of romantic suspense standalones***

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.

Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”

I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”

“I think I’m in danger from you.”

My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”

She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”

A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.

There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.

Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.

My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.

And there hadn’t been a girl since.

Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.

Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.

But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.

Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.

Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.
My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.

But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.

And this girl burned so damn bright.

Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.

I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”

Review – Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland 

Well, I’ve sat on my review for a day now. I’m not sure I can ever put into words how mind blowing Beautiful Mistake actually was. Once again I’m IN AWE of Vi’s words and lyrical talent. 

Beautiful Mistake is a MASTERPIECE. I honestly do not know how Vi repeatedly writes books THIS GOOD. I mean each and every book captivated and consumes. Each and every book feels fresh and flows perfectly. However, this book excelled all those previous to it. It eclipsed her previous works for me. Vi made this book SO MUCH MORE. Beautiful Mistake is like a symphony. As we progressed deeper and deeper into the book the beat of my heart gradually began to beat faster, my breaths came harder, with each and every build of the masterpiece Vi stole my heart. 

Beautiful Mistake touches on a student/teacher romance. There is no huge age gap and it’s more a Professor/TA romance but it still managed to have that forbidden aspect that made this book sizzle and burn. Throughout we get flashbacks of a past that pulls at every emotion, flooding the senses with a desperate need to know what happened. The suspense that weaves through this book was intense and addicting. As with all Vi’s books, there was trademark comedy, laugh out loud one liners and scenarios that left me giggling and falling deep in love with our hero and heroine. 

I looove Caine West. I’m 100% infatuated with him. He’s something else people. His words made my burn up and turned me to goo AT THE SAME TIME. He’s dirty, so dirty, but so raw, swoony and really romantic. Vi seriously does write some of the best hero’s EVER. Coupled with Caine was the fantastic, Rachel. Rachel was the PERFECT heroine for Caine. Super sweet, so funny and incredibly sexy. They matched together perfectly and stole my heart, while they fought for each others.

Beautiful Mistake consumed me. It became my addiction and I devoured this heartbreakingly beautiful romance. It undoubtedly became a favourite of mine and a top read of 2017!

A sexy new standalone from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.
Oops. My mistake.
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…

Review – Sexy Beast by Piper Rayne

Sexy Beast by Piper Rayne

Sexy Beast is just that. A sexy beast of a read that is EASILY Piper Rayne’s BEST BOOK YET! 
This book is super sexy. I loved EVERY MINUTE  of it. Garrett is my FAVE single dad yet! Lordy, that man was insanely hot, moody, broody, delicious and hella dirty! 

His relationship with Charleigh was EXPLOSIVE. The undeniable attraction and chemistry between Garrett and Charleigh was palpable. 

This story well and truly packed a punch though, with an intense slow burn, alongside a heartbreaking past that Garrett endured, my emotions were well and truly stirred up. Mix that with a forbidden aspect of best friends little sister romance and Sexy Beast was a WINNER! 

I absolutely ADORED these two as a couple and breezed through their story with blissful ease.

I loved this sexy, sinful romance and cannot wait for more Piper Rayne goodness.

It’s time.

Time to get a life.

Time to start over.

Time to move beyond the past.

The guys in the Single Dads Club would tell you it was time years ago, but until recently, the risk of hurting my little girl outweighed the benefit of getting a piece of ass.

Now that I have a tween daughter on my hands? It’s becoming more apparent with every poster hung on the wall, every fight over wearing make-up and every uncomfortable conversation about puberty, that at least one of us needs a female touch in our lives.

Jesus. I can’t even think the words ‘female touch’ without thinking of her.

Charlotte Rose. Charlie.

She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but someone needs to tell that to my damn libido because every time she’s around I have a constant case of blue balls.

There’s a list of reasons why I shouldn’t give into what I feel—she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s seen me at my most vulnerable, and the biggest one—she’s the first person in twelve years who has the potential to break me.

Review – The Unrequited by Saffron A Kent

The Unrequited by Saffron A Kent

Incredible. Absolutely INCREDIBLE. I’m speechless. 

That was the first line I wrote for this review and then sat for 2 hours thinking about what I could actually say. I’m still a little all over the place and lost for words. This book is ANGSTY PERFECTION. For me that was an absolute winner. But, that’s not all. This is a student/teacher romance *fist bump*. It’s taboo and raw and gritty. It’s uncomfortable in places then it’s simple and easy in other places. The flow and masterful mixing of all the subject matter is done with delicate precision. It’s so obvious to see that these characters meant so much to the author and she took her time making their story as true as it was. As brutal as it was. As breathtaking as it was.

“I’ll pour the gasoline, light the match, and watch you burn, Layla—and trust me, you’re going to love it. I’m going to ruin you for every other man out there and you’re going to love every second of it.”

I want to say that I shouldn’t have loved Thomas as much as I did. I shouldn’t have liked him at all. I won’t say why because I’ll give too much away but trust me I just shouldn’t have liked him. But, and here is where Saffron blew me away.. I slowly fell in love with a broken, beast of a man who shut himself off and pushed everyone away. I fell in love with his undying devotion to EVERY character in this book. It’s a contradiction I know, but, that push and pull from him alone was done so well, it’s where a lot of the angst came in and I loved it. I fell in love with HIM. And Saffron made that possible.

“Because I’m a girl who’s not supposed to be the love of someone’s life, not with my selfishness. I was meant to live in the shadows and secrets. I can be Thomas’ secret, for a little while, at least— until I absorb all of his pain and set him free.”

Saffron also made it possible for me to adore Layla. The crazy, messed up, beautifully broken Layla. This woman may not click with everyone, some may find her way too crazy. But the beauty of all this was in the way Saffron wrote Layla making her beliefs honest, so gut wrenchingly honest. 

Anyone who has been in love knows that love can make you crazy. Anyone who’s been in love and not had it returned can make you crazy. It’s a fact that love does make us crazy and while The Unrequited focuses on that crazy side of love and the raw, brutal journey it can take you on, it also focuses on the beauty, the hope and the strength that can develop from love. 

“The tiny words on the paper seem to have risen and attached themselves to my skin. I feel them everywhere, all the time, as if I know them.”

This quote contains SO MUCH TRUTH. This book is under my skin, coursing through my veins. The Unrequited is not your sweet and flowery romance. It’s not boy meets girl, fall in love all sweet and swoony. No, this book is raw, it’s brutal, it’s gritty and uncomfortable it’s dangerous but it’s filled with intensity, explosive passion, heat, honesty and all consuming love. And it will stay with me for a long time and quite easily become one of my TOP reads of 2017.

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

Sydney hates liars, despises them really, so what is she to do when the man her heart wants most turns out to be the biggest betrayer and deceiver of them all?

 

Sydney never finds herself in trouble. She always listens to her parents, follows the rules, and does what is expected of her, but in one moment, that all changes. The day she meets a campus police officer and keeps their relationship a secret from her family, her life takes on a dark turn…

 

Now scarred and tormented by nightmares, Sydney hides her fears from everyone as she moves back home and takes over her mother’s bakery.

 

Just when she believes she has a handle on her life, a mysterious man waltzes into her shop and turns her world upside down. Behind the beard and silver eyes Sydney knows he’s hiding something, but is the attraction worth losing herself again?

 

Dylan Bennett knows he is in trouble the first time he lays eyes on Sydney. Behind her wavy blonde hair and flour-covered clothes he knows that she holds the key to his undoing, but he can’t risk it.

 

As an undercover agent, Dylan lives his life by strict codes and calculations. He knows one wrong move could put Sydney in danger, but something about her draws him in and that may prove to be the biggest risk he has ever taken. What happens when she finds out the lies behind those silver eyes?

 

Will the deception become too much for Sydney or will she fight alongside Dylan to bury the one person who brings her past back to the surface?

Review – Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher 


Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

In one night, I sucked down Tarryn Fisher’s words like they were my air to breathe, inhaling Atheists Who Kneel and Pray. Tarryn Fisher breathes life into a story that hits straight to the heart. I knew that only after a few words, this soul-searing story would be MY EVERYTHING and that it was.

I couldn’t bring myself to the end that night so I savored that last ten percent the next day….

Then I sat, STUNNED SPEECHLESS, as the full force of this storm of a story HIT ME, this hurricane in words. Tears streamed down my face, eyes that were etched for a while with the waterworks that fell hard from mere words…words that wielded PASSION and POWER in spades. This whirlwind of words took me under its spell and all I could do while reading … experiencing … feeling … was pray that I would survive this story.

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is a title as UNEQUIVOCALLY UNIQUE as the story itself, a tale so UTTERLY RAW and REAL. Tarryn Fisher’s words aren’t just part of a story you’re reading: They are an experience … a journey YOU LIVE and FEEL. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their hauntingly beautiful love story was mine. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is not just a story but a full-blown immersion where the heart, breath, and soul collide as they become one.

Gorgeous musician, David, needs a muse to give his songs that edge. Beautiful Yara is cynical, a non-believer of love, a floater from city to city. She is David’s perfect muse. The problem is that David believes in love.

The chemistry between Yara and David is palpable; their connection is passionate. I could feel their fire spark through the pages. Fire and ice is one fierce combination.

This was what it was like to be worshipped.


Real love is sacrifice and commitment.

Love was a leap of faith. Love was just a word until someone gave it a definition.


The problem is that love is not one-sided where one half worships the other; it’s reciprocal.



Don’t let it be too late.


I fell fast. I fell hard. I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING in Atheists Who Kneel and Pray. I don’t know why I waited so long to meet Tarryn Fisher’s wonderful and wondrous writing, but I was a fool to procrastinate. Tarryn Fisher writes from the heart where her heart is poured into those beautiful and brilliant words. I felt Tarryn Fisher through her words. I just now need to devour her other masterpieces so I can feel the rest. How could I not feel those too?

Passionately poignant, heartbreakingly beautiful, and spiritually soulful, Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is A STORY FELT not read. I devoured Atheists Who Kneel and Pray with tears streaming down my face, tears of despair and desperation, tears of heartbreak and hope, and tears for love that never dies. My SOUL WAS SHATTERED YET SOOTHED, as my HEART BROKE in the most beautiful way from this beauty in words. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is heartbreaking and heartwarming, the sweetest torture of a tale, MESSY LOVE AT ITS BEST.

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is DEVASTATINGLY BEAUTIFUL, a book that bares itself to you but strips your soul bare too. This romance BREATHES LIFE INTO THE PAGES in a touching and turbulent tale where you can’t help but feel something spiritual … something MORE. It’s as if Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is fueled by fate, stamped with a spirit, perhaps something supernatural, which seeps straight to the soul. I can’t help but still feel this soulful story swimming through me, crashing hard into my heart like the tide, my heart pounding from this roller coaster of a Tarryn Fisher ride, a ride I never want to to stop feeling…a ride I never want to end.

“Love is not a part of something else. It’s the only thing.”


A TOP 2017 READ & MUST-CLICK ROMANCE!!!

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.

She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.

David Lisey is in need of a muse.

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:

A broken heart.

David’s religion is love. 

Yara’s religion is heartache.

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice. 


Dear Yara,

The bands in London, November 12th. Want to catch up?

David

So casual. So nonchalant. You’d think we were only acquaintances, that we’d once sipped a couple of beers together instead of tattooing love on our skin and reciting marriage vows. I read the e-mail again and analyze the shit out of it. How can I not? I count out the words: thirteen. The punctuation: four. His name, my name. A flippant, casual turn of phrase: catch up. In the end, there’s only so much psychoanalyzing you can do to a thirteen-word e-mail. I move on with my life, feeling rather pathetic. But not before I e-mail him back. And okay, sure, I don’t move on with my life. What does that even entail? Forgetting? Forgiving? Being happy? Besides, I know what he wants to talk about. I know why he’s coming.

Hi David,

Yeah, sounds good. Let me know when and where.

Yara

My e-mail is a word shorter.

I’m that petty.

A MUST MEET ROMANCE!!!

Review – Jilted by Sawyer Bennett 

Jilted by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just died and went to ROMANCE HEAVEN, Jilted there by LOVE…so much LOVE for Sawyer Bennett’s latest love story!!! Second-chance romances are my weakness, and Jilted was my DREAMY DRUG. I am still HIGH on this romance!!!

This story…I did not expect it to UTTERLY CAPTIVATE and CONSUME ME from the very first page. Jilted paraded its pages in front me like Miss America, flaunting its Hollywood glitz and glamor while DAZZLING ME with small town charm. A Southern hero and heroine sealed the deal for this Southern gal, as like loves like. There is nothing sweeter than a small town romance, especially one of soulmates.

Eden, a small town-turned Hollywood starlet with one of my favorite names, is as beautiful as she is bold. This heroine is a mix of strength, sweetness, and sass. I bowed to her ‘take no prisoners meets Southern lady’ character.

Cooper is ALL-ALPHA PERFECTION: tall, built, sexy, smart, strong, stubborn, and sweet. This alpha is a Southern gentlemen by day and delicious dominant at night with both a dirty and sugary sweet mouth that is bound to make you melt.

A playboy, his one love got away when they were still young.

“I’ve been ruined for anything but Eden.”


When Eden and Cooper collide many years after their childhood romance broke apart, it is one fireball of an explosion of fiery tempers and nostalgic feels. The heat is off-the-charts combustible, a chemical storm neither can deny.

“I’m going to possess every part of you.”


HOLY HOT!!! I SMOLDERED at Cooper’s all-alpha words that POSSESSED ME.

“Please say you want me and you’ll stay.”


I SWEATED and PLEADED with the pages that this couple would finally find their way and stay…together.

“I believe I was put on this earth for the sole purpose of loving you.”


Hollywood glam meets the small town South in Jilted, an epic love story that is hot-as-sin sexy and sweet-as-pie swoony. I SWOONED, sunk into this second-chance romance, rooting for two halves of soulmates to become whole again. This story SWEPT ME AWAY!!!

Jilted is my new favorite Sawyer Bennett romance, as it’s the perfect blend of smolder, sweetness, and swoon.Jilted is an ENCHANTING ESCAPE. With its Sweet Home Alabama vibe, it’s like watching and reading this epic love story of soulmates. Prepare to MELT from the MAGICAL words of Jilted, a story heavy in heat and heart, as you bask in the glow of second-chance love. I’m still floating on Cloud Nine.

“True love always finds a way.”


💋💋💋💋💋 ‘first and last love’ kisses 

View all my reviews

Hollywood hath no fury like a woman scorned. In this fun, flirty second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, an aspiring starlet reconnects with her first love.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore.”—Violet Duke

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

A MUST-CLICK ROMANCE!!!
