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?”



“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.”


“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 – 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 – 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.”

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 reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.

Review – Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker 

Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I’m about to meet a new or new-to-me author’s writing for the first time, it’s a HUGE HIGH. The anticipation … the wonder … the unknown … it’s all such a RUSH!!! I finally met KA Tucker’s words in Until It Fades, and was WOWED by the depth and dominance of her writing. I REVELED in this story’s POWER. ALL-CONSUMING and AWE-INSPIRING, Until It Fades is a Cinderella story that casts a spell on the heart and soul.

I DEVOURED Until It Fades in a day. Hours was all it took to breathe in this book, inhaling the words like air, my feels the fumes that floated around me. This romance is a SLOW BURN and oh did I burn for this book!!! I was CAUGHT as the words pulled me in, CLAIMED by both a brave hero and heroine who I loved right away, and CAPTIVATED by this story that struck my soul and held my heart in its hands.

“Consider this your second chance. A way to redeem yourself, if you feel like you need it.”

If you had a second chance at love and life, would you take it? If you made mistakes, would you want redemption? A second chance is a gift to be spent on building a better life, and that’s what the fierce heroine in Until It Fades set out to do.

I ADORED and ADMIRED one of the strongest heroines I’ve ever read in Catherine. Like her Greek name, she is a warrior, a goddess of strength. Catherine puts the ‘hero’ in heroine, a young woman who made mistakes in her past and lives with them daily, but unexpectedly finds redemption one night when a stranger’s life collides with hers. Catherine goes from ‘Scarlett letter-stamped’ to savior in one night to a strange man who, perhaps, was not her accidental meeting but her fate.

Does he feel what I’m feeling, too? Is his heart racing right now? Or is it just me?

Brett, hot and humble hockey captain, is PURE PERFECTION. I LOVED this alpha with a huge heart!!! This man is a knight in shining armor but his hero is no damsel in distress.

With each encounter between Brett and Catherine meet, it’s a collision of chemistry.


I’m having a hard time breathing.

“Tell me you believe me.”

“I believe —”

He steals my last word with his mouth.

I could FEEL their MAGIC, this blend of smolder and sweetness, and it was one POTENT MIX. I morphed into lava, the beauty in these words made me FEEL them too. This prince and princess who have battled the odds need to ride off into the sunset together.


“I’ve never wanted anyone as much as I want you.”


Until It Fades is a fierce FAIRY TALE of FEELS that you can’t help but LOVE, a story that steals the heart from the start! KA Tucker instantly moved to my list of TOP AUTHORS. This author is a new top writer of mine, and I’m a fan for life. I can’t wait for more by KA Tucker!!!

This Cinderella tale with a twist was my happy, my heart, and my hope. Until It Fades is MAGIC in WORDS, words that MELTED ME. I fell in love over and over again while reading this STARS-IN-YOUR-EYES STORY of strength, survival, and second chances at life and love. I can’t stop smiling from this slow burn of a book that rendered me HOPELESSLY SPELLBOUND. I’m still FLOATING ON CLOUD NINE!!!

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.

For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?

Review – Wicked Grind by J. Kenner

Wicked Grind by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Second chance romances are my weakness. J Kenner’s sensual and sweet second chance romance, Wicked Grind, was MY KRYPTONITE.There is nothing as passionate and powerful than two former lovers rekindling that flame and two broken souls becoming whole again. Shiver-me-sexy meets sugary-sweet in Wicked Grind, a second chance romance that SEDUCES with every word.

I DEVOURED Wicked Grind that quickly became MY SWEET ADDICTION. Wicked Grind hums with DESIRE. This COLLISION of childhood lovers was my SWEET ACHE and I could not turn the pages fast enough. I LOVED the hero and heroine, and their UNDENIABLE attraction so much!

Wyatt is a tall, dark, built, and sexy world famous photographer whose work is edgy and enticing. Wyatt is fire-hot and I could not help but MELT!!! When his work collides with his personal life in the form of beautiful Kelsey, his childhood sweetheart, it’s one crash that may cause one or both of them to get burned.

I SMOLDERED as the fireworks ignited from these former flames as the words fused with fire. This couple is the perfect match. I felt their connection surge through the pages. The sexual tension and poignant past between Kelsey and Wyatt GRIPPED ME HARD where I was GLUED to their sizzling story.

“Can you handle knowing I’ll see you raw and vulnerable? And not just see you. Do you understand that I’m the one who’s going to take you there?”

I SWOONED as the sorrow mixed with sweetness hit my heart hard.

“I’m invisible.”

“You’re not invisible to me.”

I SWEATED from the powerful push and pull of this story that tugged my heart in every direction.

“You know my conditions. Now ask yourself what you want. And then ask yourself how much you want it.”

J. Kenner is the queen of seduction and oh did Wicked Grind SEDUCE EVERY OUNCE OF ME!!! With writing as smooth as silk with strength in spades, a sweet and sexy hero, and a soulful second-chance romance, I was a GONER!!! I was so sunk into this love story…hook…line…sinker!!!

With its undeniable chemistry and unparalleled intensity, Wicked Grind is PURE INTOXICATION. I LOVED this ENTICING ESCAPE!!! While this story is tied to the spellbinding Stark world, Wicked Grind is fresh and fiercely stands on its own. Wicked Grind is one WILD RIDE! This love story is POWER and PASSION in words, and I am panting for more.

Even in my fantasies, I can’t bring myself to give us a happily ever after.

Sometimes it feels so damn good to be bad

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well why their relationship ended all those years ago.

Determined to break free from her good girl persona, Kelsey wants spice. Adventure. And she’s certain that Wyatt is just the man to help.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

All Wicked novels stand alone

Review – Country Nights by Winter Renshaw 

Country Nights by Winter Renshaw 

Country Nights by Winter Renshaw was nothing like I expected it to be. If anything it was so much more! I couldn’t possibly tell you if I devoured this book or it devoured me. I was totally captivated by this story from start to finish.

Winter’s books are absolutely fantastic, I swear they bring out so much emotion and passion and I have loved every book of hers so far but I actually think this one is my favourite. Hands down. 

Without a doubt Winter is one of the BEST at writing men that are hard, closed off, broken men. She’s also one of the best at writing women who kick these men into touch and turn them into protective, love sick alphas. And it’s ALWAYS a dream to read. 

Country Nights follows Leighton & River. These two are super hot! From the moment they meet an electric current begins to sizzle  and it slowly builds up into an all connection that consumed me, heart and mind. 

5 captivating, consuming stars!

Sixty country days and sixty country nights—that’s all I wanted.

I needed to get away from the city, away from the hot mess that had become my life.

When I stumbled upon my childhood home on, I took it as a sign, cleaned out my life savings, and hightailed it to the only place that ever meant something to me, a place I hadn’t seen since a lifetime ago.

Only when I arrived to the familiar South Dakotan farmhouse, I was met by a brooding, we-don’t-take-kindly-to-strangers cowboy by the name of River McCray, who insisted this was his house and most definitely not a rental property.

I’d been internet scammed.

And that cocky, smart-mouthed stranger had the nerve to make me a humiliating offer: I could stay in his house for the next two months rent-free, but I had to work for him.

He’d be my boss. And my roommate.

With no money and nowhere else to go, I agreed. But nothing could have prepared me for the tension, the attraction, and the bombshell revelation that changed … everything.




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

The Studying Hours by Sara Ney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Why did I wait so long to meet the ADDICTIVE WRITING of Sara Ney and her BOOK CRACK called How to Date a Douchebag?!? Count me in as a FANGIRL for LIFE!!! I bow to this author!!! Sara Ney’s words SCREAM: I. DARE. YOU. NOT. TO. FEEL. ME!!!

How to Date a Douchebag is WHOLEHEARTEDLY INTOXICATING!!! After a few pages, Sara Ney propelled to my list of TOP AUTHORS!!! After a few pages, I was HOOKED as I fell HEAD-OVER-HEELS IN LOVE with Sara Ney’s words and one completely cocky and deliciously dirty douchebag. After a few pages, I was a GONER, so SUNK into this story!!! I had to force myself to put my kindle down.

This guy? He’s a douchebag—one with a capital D.

The incredible man I wanted to hate but had to love, Oz, OWNED every OUNCE OF ME!!! Oz is gorgeous, cocky, and pure alpha perfection. That mouth on Oz is a sin. He owned my panties and heart. I’ll date this Douchebag anytime!!! 

She’s a nobody, and I don’t screw nobodies.

James is smart, sassy, and a beautiful firecracker of a female heroine. Both Oz and James SHOCKED me in a great way, as there is so much more to both than meets the eyes.

“A little friendly advice?” Her pouty lips part and I’m drawn to them as they mutter, “Never judge a girl by her cardigan,” just loud enough for me to hear.

Oz and James’ banter was on fire and so was I!

“You could turn a tidy profit selling that body of yours.”

“That sounds oddly like a compliment. Do you want to be my first paying customer?”

The audacity of Oz is highly entertaining. James puts him in his place and I sucked every shot of sass down like shots on a night out clubbing. James and Oz are just MAGICAL together.

“Wonderful and awful. Beautiful and forgettable. That’s how you make me feel, all at the same time.”

I laughed and lusted like a loon. I smiled and swooned like a romantic. I blushed like a school girl. I bled tears like a broken heart holder. My ovaries and hands both applauded this romance that I LOVED so HARD!!!

THIS BOOK!!!! A MUST-READ!!! BEST. DOUCHEBAG. EVER!!! How to Date a Douchebag is laugh-out-loud funny, hot-as-sin-sexy, and soul-swooning goodness.This douchebag romance by Sara Ney SWEPT ME AWAY with writing that SLAYS humor and heart. This book BUZZES with excitement. Sara Ney’s writing is serious SORCERY that casts one SPECTACULAR SPELL!!! How to Date a Douchebag is ALL OF THE THINGS!!! UNPUTDOWNABLE. UNFORGETTABLE. UTTERLY PERFECT. ❤️

He’s everything I don’t want. And yet… Somehow he is.

No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.


Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.

She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected.

The plane ride had been over five hours so far, and it felt like the longest of my life. I didn’t know what was going on with Marcy and Kenzie, and worse, I had no idea where my son was, and that was killing me the most.

Twitch was doing his nervous twitchy thing and it had me on edge. “What’s the matter, brother?” I asked warily.

“I got a bad feeling about this.”

“Shit. Really?” I got up from my seat. I knew better than anyone what Twitch’s feelings resulted in. He had an uncanny sixth sense when things were about to go bad and fast. I couldn’t sit still any longer.

“Mac, it’s going to be okay, we will get him back,” Tasha said vehemently.

I nodded but continued pacing. There was nothing else I could do until we landed and saw what the situation was. Tasha was upset too. Marcy was her friend and Tasha’s dad, Barnes, was responsible for this mess. We all knew he was behind it, but we didn’t have one fucking detail yet.

The worst part of this whole shit show? That I was still pissed at Marcy, and I was feeling completely guilty about that. How could I be so angry with someone and still love her at the same time? It had been twelve years since she left me, and yet I still thought of little else. I should have fought harder. I should have stayed in Baltimore and made her talk to me.

The flight attendant came out and told us to put our seat belts on in preparation of our descent, so I sat down next to Tasha. I never stopped moving though. My knee was bouncing up and down burning off my nervous energy.

“You still love her don’t you?” Tasha placed her hand on my knee.

“It doesn’t matter.”

“Sure it does.”

“No, Tasha. It really doesn’t. She made her choice. She knew what her decision would do to me and she did it anyway. She knew how important having a family was to me and she stole that from me. So, no, the fact that I still love her makes no difference because she obviously never loved me.”

Tasha glared at me for all of five seconds before her tirade began. “That’s bullshit Mac and you know it. I could tell when you all rescued us from Doug’s basement that she was still in love with you. I could tell the day that Twitch proposed to me and she screamed in my face about Twitch ruining everything that she felt guilty for what she had done. I had no idea what it was at the time, but I could see it. You both need to get over your hang ups, stop being stupid, and just be together because everyone can see that’s what you both want.”

“Okay, babe,” Twitch said softly, seated on the other side of her. “That’s enough.”

She looked angry and I had no idea why. I had heard Marcy had freaked on Tasha that morning but I wasn’t sure why.

Even if I hadn’t found out the way I did, I would have found out eventually, especially now with all the craziness. I thought about that in silence the whole drive to Brock’s compound.

“Shit, is that smoke?” Griffin asked when we were about a mile away. Everyone started yelling at once.

“Go, go, go. You have to go faster,” I yelled at the same time Tasha said, “Holy fuck, holy fuck, that’s Brock’s compound.”

“Tasha, it’s okay. I’m sure they are fine. Brock has cameras everywhere. They saw it coming.” Twitch attempted reassurance while rubbing her shoulders. “They had to have seen it coming.”

He added the last part mostly to himself, but he looked at me with a grimace. I knew he was as worried as Tasha, but I was jumping out of my skin. Marcy had to be okay. She just had to be. There was no other option. I was not losing them both.

The gate was a twisted pile of burning metal and I thought the worst. The thick column of smoke got thicker and hung heavier in the air the closer we got to the house. Griffin was driving as fast as he could, but there was very little visibility. If we weren’t careful the smoke would cause an accident and we might never make it to Pix.

The bright orange flames engulfed the house. My heart nearly beat out of my chest when I saw it.

“Shit, what do we do?” Trey asked, panicked.

“Get on the phone with emergency services and leave an anonymous call about the fire. We will search the surrounding area for any sign of them,” Griffin commanded.

“If they were in the safe room, there is a possibility they are still in the house. How do we get in there to check?” I asked completely irrationally.

“We don’t.”

“Fuck that. I’m going in there and you’re not stopping me, Griffin.”

I jumped from the SUV and went around to the back. Grabbing my bag, I rifled through it and found a small hand towel and a bottle of water. After pouring some on the towel, I dumped the rest on my head.

“Bro, you can’t go in there,” Twitch said from behind me.

“Yes, I can, and I am.” I shoved past him towards the house.

“Mac, you can’t.” Tasha attempted to get in front of me.

“Don’t. He popped his shoulder out of place trying to get to you when you were locked in that basement.” I pointed wildly at my cousin. “He was a mad man when it came to looking for you. I will move you out of my way if I have to, Tasha.”

Thankfully, she stepped aside after that. The closer I got to the house the hotter it got. It looked like whoever had set fire to the house had busted the door down first. I got down low and held the towel over my nose and mouth and went inside. It was like a horror show in there. The heat was so bad I felt like my blood was boiling and my skin was searing off.

“Marcy,” I yelled through the towel over my mouth. “Marcy.”

Please God, let her be okay.

That was when I heard a slight tapping. A support beam had fallen and held the door to the saferoom closed from the outside. The tapping was faint, and I prayed that the room was air locked. If not she would have smoke inhalation by the time I was able to get to her.

The beam was on fire and blocking the door. Removing my jacket, I wrapped it around my hands and grabbed the only part of the beam that wasn’t burning and pulled. I used all my strength, but it refused to budge and I knew that I couldn’t continue my heavy breathing, or I would be dead in minutes.

A hand came out then, and grabbed another part of the beam. Trey and I lifted it together and moved it away from the door.

I pushed the door open and that was when I saw her. All five-foot-two beautiful Pixie laying on the floor. Her face was ashen, and I could tell she was barely hanging on. Picking her up, I cradled her to my chest and silently prayed.

Trey and I tried to move quickly, but the house was falling down around us. Every few steps, we had to dodge a board or a beam. The floor beneath was losing its integrity as well.

“Hurry Trey, or we’re gonna be buried alive,” I shouted just as the floor gave way beneath my foot.

“Mac,” Trey bellowed, not realizing what had happened. “Come on, man. We gotta go.”

“Take her and get out of here. As soon as I get my leg out I will be right behind you.”

Trey started to argue, but the look I gave him was lethal. He grabbed Marcy and headed stealthily to the door.

When they cleared the front door, I covered my mouth with the edge of my shirt to get a breath of air and then attempted to get my foot out of the floor. Every time I pulled, a searing pain shot through it. I gritted my teeth and tried again, but I was already coughing from the lack of oxygen in the room. I laid my head down to give myself a moment and try to catch a breath, but it was useless. Just before everything went black, I felt a pair of hands pulling me back towards the flames.

Review – The Director and the Don Juan by Katy Regnery

Director Cover

Review graphic

Oh, this story felt so good!

I have always like Alice Story. She’s a hard working, tough as nails broad who stood up to her sexist tyrant of a father and made herself a success. She loves her sisters and wants nothing more than to take care of her family. Even Elizabeth who has chosen for whatever reason to remain attached to her clueless father. The only person that Alice has truly had to turn to is her assistant, Carlos. This brave beautiful man chose to take a chance and left with Alice to begin her import business. Over the years of working so closely together, they have formed such a bond. They work well together, think in the same ways, see business the same way. Still, clearly they have way more than business between them, and fight though she may, Alice Story definitely wants Carlos to be far more than her executive assistant. Far more.

Carlos Vega is determined to have it all – career, family and Alice. This Latino Adonis has no doubts about his devotion Alice Story, and he firmly believes that he can make her happy. He knows that Alice has insecurities – the biggest being the seven years between them. To Carlos, though, the numbers mean nothing, and he proves it by doing what he has been doing everyday – taking care of Alice. Oh, Carlos is so sexy, so alpha! He leaves no doubt who’s in charge when reminds Alice that she may run the boardroom, but he is fully in charge in their bedroom. Wow! He had me with his romantic gestures, sexy Spanish and burning hot dance moves. His love of his family and his culture is so endearing. He is just one great guy.

My trips to Blueberry Lane make me wish for more always. This long running series just keeps getting better with each family that Katy highlights. It’s getting harder and harder to pick a favorite family. I don’t think I want to! The Director was a welcome distraction with a nice side trip to the Caribbean. Great job, Katy.

5 Latin Lover Stars!
From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a brand new series set on Blueberry Lane!

The Director and Don Juan is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based Story sisters who are all on the look-out for love.

Heiress Alice Story left her father’s company three years ago in a blaze of glory, inviting all of his employees to jump ship and join her, but only one accepted her offer: mail room clerk, Carlos Vega.

While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man — executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker.

And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other.

When Alice is offered a lucrative business deal in Puerto Rico, island-born Carlos is the perfect person to accompany her on her trip as translator. But as they travel together from Philadelphia to Santo Domingo to Ponce, two unlikely co-workers will discover that their feelings for each other have grown far deeper than they ever could have guessed.

And though business-minded, proper Alice will try her very best to ignore the longings of her heart, scorching hot, insanely sexy Boricua, Carlos, has no intention of letting her go.
