Respect by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Light is easy to love. Show me your darkness.~ R. Queen

I love books bathed in darkness with a sliver of light, as they dig deeply into the depths of hell but somehow find a bit of heaven. Jay Crownover is a mix master of black, shadowy stories that still shine like gold. This master storyteller makes you love the ‘baddest’ of bad boys in her powerful series called The Point and The Breaking Point where the men who sway from criminals to heroes, the boyfriends that mothers would hide from if you brought them home, the boys you should probably run from too. But you can’t help but adore these saints and sinners that snag your heart.

Respect is the story of a broken-hearted but brave princess who has to flee the corrupt kingdom because she thinks the big, broken and bold prince doesn’t see her beyond a young friend. Oh how wrong this heroine is; the powerful prince sees her but does not want to corrupt her. Neither realize the power of fate. Fate has other plans and is the real ruler of this kingdom.

Time was supposed to heal all wounds, but mine felt like it was still wide open and bleeding all over the place.

Scorching, spine-tingling, and oh-so strong, Respect is the perfect fusion of light and dark, heaven and hell, and sin and salvation. Gritty with bits of glam. Dark with bits of light. Dangerous and daring. Respect is a HEADY HIGH! I was ADDICTED to Karsen and Bookers’ journey that is as emotional as it is explosive. I LOVED being back at the Point! I can’t help but become fully vested in these characters—the baddest and bravest boys with the biggest hearts and the bold heroines who stand beside them. From Bax to Booker and Dovie to Karsen, I’ve fallen for every one of the heroes and anti-heroes of the Point.

”Don’t regret this later, Karsen. If you do, it might kill me.”

Fire-hot, formidable, and full of feels, Respect is a fresh spin on romance. Jay Crownover always brings a uniqueness to her words that I’ve called ‘Crownover Crack’ since meeting Rule years ago. From Better When He’s Bad to Respect, The Point and The Breaking Point series are perfectly imperfect stories that slay with strength and soul. Respect is the perfect farewell. A HIGH-OCTANE, HEART-POUNDING ROMANCE that delivers all the way.

”The only person whose touch I ever needed was yours.”

What a powerful finish to a powerful and poignant series! I so don’t want this series to be over. Jay Crownover rocked all of these brilliant bad boy books out of the park! The addicting anti-heroes—villains fused with victors—of the Point will mark your soul, grab your heart, and stay with you forever. Bad has never been so good!!!

It was a place that was so bad, so dark, so lost in crime and violence it didn’t have a name…we simply called it the Point. It was the ending point, the breaking point, the point of no return…it was simply a place where only the strong survived and anyone else was bound to die trying.

A MUST-MEET ROMANCE & SERIES!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-racing ‘all the respect’ stars

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.  

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.  

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn’t the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she’d given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.  

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind.  She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.  

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn’t feel like surrender… but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It’s a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.    

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She’d much rather go out and build her own.

~Karsen~

I had no plans to leave the Point. It was ugly, mean, hard, and unforgiving, but these streets were home and I couldn’t imagine being happy anywhere else. This place had long since made my hands and the edges of my soul dirty. It was something I would be hard-pressed to hide should I go anywhere else. I’d have to spend my days trying to camouflage the filth I was so familiar with. Here, no one looked twice at the pretty teenager with shadows in her eyes and blood on her hands. I was one of many.

I wasn’t interested in leaving behind my sister or her fiancé, Race. We were an odd, dysfunctional family, but we made it work.

I didn’t want to be too far away from my mother, who was living in a group home as she slowly, painfully tried to recover from her alcoholism and PTSD from an accident she caused that ended up taking the life of a young mother and her child.

But more than anything, I absolutely didn’t want to leave him.

I couldn’t imagine a day going by without catching a glimpse of Noah Booker. I mean, he was impossible to miss. Six-and-a-half-feet tall, body built like a professional athlete, dark and brooding with the prettiest gunmetal-gray eyes, he was the entirety of every one of my teenage fantasies. I barely noticed the jagged scar dividing one side of his face. White and raised, it cut one of his black eyebrows in half, slashed over a high cheekbone, and ended somewhere under the chiseled edge of his hard jaw. He never talked about it, but Race, Booker’s boss, let it slip that Booker got the scar when he was locked up. Or maybe it wasn’t as much of a slip-up as a thinly veiled warning. Race never kept it much of a secret that my infatuation with his massive, dangerous, ex-con enforcer made him extremely uncomfortable. He’d warned me over and over again that Booker wasn’t for me. And he’d made it clear to the man who broke knees and smashed heads for a living that he was to stay as far away from me as possible.

They called it puppy love. It wasn’t.

To me, it was a vicious kind of love, filled with teeth and claws that I could feel digging at my insides every single time someone patted me on the head and told me how young I was, how much life I had yet to live. This love was rabid, and I was tired of having it on a leash. I wanted to let it free, wanted to let it sink its razor-sharp fangs into the man who had awoken the primal need inside of me. It was only fair he felt the same kind of crushing bite and painful pressure around his heart that I did every single day.

I was solely focused on getting to Booker. It barely registered I was done with high school and had new doors opening all around me. I couldn’t care less about getting my hands on my diploma. A piece of paper with Karsen Carter written on it in pretty calligraphy meant exactly nothing to me. The only thing I was focused on was the fact I was finally old enough to make my own choices. And I’d always picked Booker. Over and over again he was my number one priority.

Review – As Dust Dances by Samantha Young

As Dust Dances Cover

As Dust Dances by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Music is the outburst of the soul.

There is nothing more moving than a tale threaded with music. Music that complements and completes the story. Music that makes the story. Music is the key to the heart and soul, and Samantha Young unlocks and unleashes a musical concert of feels in As Dust Dances. From beginning to end, Samantha Young paints a stunning story in vivid detail that hits the heart and sings to the soul. So broken. So brave. So breathtaking. So beautiful.

I was CONSUMED with this romance that’s so raw, so real, and so riveting. Samantha Young brings the reader in—not just with the compelling characters—but with pointed questions, adding another layer of realism to this tale. This heartfelt tale held me captive. An addiction I couldn’t put down. A story I couldn’t let go . . . wouldn’t let go. I ignored real life as I was sucked into a heartbreakingly beautiful world of broken characters, moving music, and a love story of strength and survival with all the feels.

I can’t find all the pieces that used to be me.

Set in Scotland, As Dust Dances is the slow-burning love story of a former pop-rock star who fled America to escape—merely exists as shattered pieces of herself—and the music producer who helps make her whole. Killian and Skylar are perfectly imperfect but perfection together. I felt their story as if it were my own.

I’d never met a man who actually smoldered until Killian O’Dea.

With broken and beautiful characters with off-the-charts chemistry, a moving and musically-threaded storyline, fire-hot and fiery angst, and words so full of feels, As Dust Dances is a journey of the heart and soul. A slow burn of heat and heart. A story of two broken characters stuck in a dark, black and white world, who finally see color. A story of strength and survival. A story of heartbreak, hope, and healing. A story of rising after falling. A story that’s EVERYTHING.

”You’re mine, Skylar Finch. I think somehow I’ve always felt like you were mine.”

This story spoke to me like a song where I felt every word—so broken yet so beautiful—as it sang to my soul. My heart was hit so hard that it both shattered and soared. As Dust Dances is an EXPLOSION of FEELS that I felt everywhere. I felt every word. I FELT EVERYTHING! This broken and beautiful musically-threaded tale MOVED ME SO MUCH!

”I know I don’t yet, but I’ll do everything in my power to try to deserve you.”

As Dust Dances is so powerful and poignant. PURE MAGIC. This heart-stopping romance brings all the feels. I felt every word!!! I cried tears of sorrow, tears of hope, and tears of joy in a tale that touched every part of my heart. My heart was so full that it exploded! I LOVED this story so much! As Dust Dances is still dancing in my heart and singing to my soul.

A MUST-READ romance!!!

Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map.

Eighteen months later she’s sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow’s ambitious A&R executives.

Killian O’Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland’s most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian’s upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn’t for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it’ll set everyone else’s alight.

Skylar makes it clear that she doesn’t want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn’t want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he’s ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible…

Audio Tour – Someone To Call My Own by Aimee Nicole Walker

5 out of 5 stars

Aimee strikes again with another 5 star read that captures your heart and soul. We’ve met these characters in the Curl Up And Dye series, and, as with all Aimee’s book, you fall in love with the secondary characters and are ecstatic for them to get their own story.

Two broken souls on a winding road on the path to each other. The only problem is they both have to be on board for a relationship to work. We get to go on the rollercoaster of emotions as we watch this romance evolve. It’s worth every single second!

I have both read and listened to the audio book. I have to say, that the book is excellent to read, but the narration really brings the story to life. The he narrator can make or break an audio book, and it’s safe to say Joel Leslie nailed it as always!

BLURB

Psychic Emory Jackson and former black ops specialist Jonathon Silver are men from two completely different worlds with one thing in common: heartbreak. Emory still mourns the loss of his husband five years prior, and Jon is reeling with grief from the recent death of his twin brother.

Sparks fly when mutual friends introduce them, but it’s so much more than basic attraction. There’s an undeniable awareness and a sense of belonging that neither man can deny. Despite Emory’s premonition of a future with Jon, he has vowed never to love again. Jon is convinced that his tainted soul is the reason he will never have someone to call his own. What if they’re both wrong?

Maybe these broken men with their jagged edges could somehow align perfectly to form something whole and beautiful. But will that realization come too late for them?

“What are you doing here, Emory?”

“I think you know.”

“I have a pretty good idea, but what has changed since I left Blissville forty minutes ago?”

“Nothing,” I answered honestly. “I don’t love you, Jon.”

“Yet,” he corrected. “You don’t love me yet.” He reached for my hand and slid his fingers in between mine. “If you walk across that threshold with me, I’m going to push you up against the nearest surface and fuck you. Probably more than once. Can you live with that?”

His words sent an electrical current racing through my body. My dick hardened fast and almost painfully beneath my tight briefs. No one had ever talked dirty to me or tried to dominate me, but it ignited something inside me like he was holding a lit match near gasoline fumes. In Jon’s eyes, I saw the raw need that burned through him just as strong as it did me.

“Take me inside.”

Jon didn’t ask me if I was sure; he gripped my hand tightly and pulled me up the broad, stone steps to the front porch. I expected him to drop my hand to unlock the front door, but he hit a few numbers on a keypad with his left hand before twisting the knob to let us inside.

I had caught a brief glimpse of the living room beyond the foyer before Jon turned to me. He didn’t even bother shutting the door before he backed me up against the foyer table. Jon’s hands immediately went to my neck to loosen my tie while he swooped down and captured my lips in a hard, demanding kiss. He released a torrent of emotions he’d repressed since we met, and I tasted each one on his tongue.

I am a wife and mother to three kids, three dogs, and a cat. When I’m not dreaming up stories, I like to lose myself in a good book, cook or bake. I’m a girly tomboy

who paints her fingernails while watching sports and yelling at the referees.

I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever-after. Love inspires everything that I do. Music keeps me sane.

Review – Rock Legend by Tara Leigh

5 out of 5 stars

Tara Leigh struck again with another home run read. I love second chance romance. Pair that with a rock star, and you’re in for one heck of a ride! Tara’s words suck you into another world as you feel like you’re riding this roller coaster ride of emotions! I would definitely recommend setting aside enough time to read the whole book because once you start, there’s no putting it down!

Landon had a rough past. With all that he went through as a child, it’s not surprising all the baggage he carries around. He’s that bad boy that you can’t help but love.

From book 1, I didn’t like Piper at all. She totally redeemed herself in this book though. The ups and downs she experiences with Landon really makes her deserving of a life of happiness.

This book is full of angst, heartbreak, tears, and scorching hot scenes. It’s a perfect read that you must read! You can read it without book 1 but I sincerely recommend reading book 1 at some point. Tara has once again proven why she is a must read author for me.

Fans of Kristen Callihan, L.J. Shen, and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I’m no Prince Charming.

Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I’m also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, “The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet.” Apparently, I’m a legend.

Am I surprised? Hell, no. It’s a reputation I’ve earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune… and spent every damn day since pretending I don’t regret it.

Now fate’s dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it’s a second chance for me – for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can’t give Piper a future.

Because there’s a difference between a legend and a fairy tale…
Only one of them ends happily ever after.

When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper.

Review – Billionaire Wake Up Call Girl by Annika Martin

5 out of 5 stars

Annika Martin has done it again. Her versatility of switching between dark and romcom is amazing. She’s one of my favorite authors and she proved why with this book.

You will laugh, cry, get angry, and so hot that you need a cold shower. I love the way Theo and Lizzy banter back and forth and slowly builds into full blown explosions!

He is determined to find the mysterious wake up caller, but she can’t let him know who she really is. Lucky for us Theo is the ever domineering alpha who ALWAYS gets what’s wants. And what he wants is that “operator. ”

This is another absolute must read from Annika Martin! You’ll be glued to your kindle until the end.

When my manager assigns me the task of finding a new wake up call service for our CEO, I think, how hard can this be?

Answer: practically impossible. It turns out that no wake-up call company in the world will take him on as a client. They’ve all had enough of his surly personality.

So in an effort not to lose my job, I secretly start making the calls myself, every day at 4:30 am sharp. OMG yes you read that right—four freaking thirty in the morning.

Confession: I’m not the nicest wake-up-call girl at that hour. Hello! Who wakes up before the roosters are even crowing? Luckily he doesn’t seem to mind my get-your-ass-out-of-bed attitude.

Day by day we’re becoming closer, and the calls start turning hot, like pay-by-the-minute hot and oh-so-wild. Snuggled under the covers with the moonlight streaming in the windows, we divulge our secrets to each other, but the one thing that he can never find out is that the sexy vixen who wakes him up every morning is just the lowly assistant who wears frumpy dresses. I can only imagine his disappointment.

Now he wants to take me out on a date and he’s scouring Manhattan to find me. He’s an overachieving billionaire bent on a mission. How much longer can I keep up this charade?

Lizzie hasn’t even met Mr. Drummond yet, but she can already tell you all about him:

I’ve never met the notorious Mr. Drummond, but evidence of his assholery is all around.

The employees here are fearful, as though they’re expecting to be fired at any moment, or maybe beheaded. The environment is sleek gray marble and steel, like an elegant and slightly futuristic prison. No outside decorations are allowed, not even in the deepest recesses of your cubicle.

Even the outside of the building is unforgiving—a mod gray concrete bunker with rectangular windows arranged in straight rows. A study in harsh geometry.

Mr. Drummond doesn’t like decorations, my manager Sasha told me once. Vossameer is about lifesaving solutions, not party streamers.

I’d brought a giant tub of home-baked frosted cookies to share my second day, and people nearly fell out of their chairs. It turns out we can’t bring treats to share. Ever.

This is a workplace, not a potluck, Sasha said.

I’ve gotten good at sensing the jerky DNA of Mr. Drummond’s statements, and I’m pretty sure that was one of them. Same with the party streamers comment. It’s something about the sheer jerkiness of it, and also, how Sasha changes her voice to sound breathless and intense.

Everyone here is obsessed with Mr. Drummond. They seem to regard him the way the ancients regarded the gods that controlled the weather and plagues. Angry and vengeful, yet glorious. Never to be spoken ill of.

Also, nobody talks about Mr. Drummond without using the word “amazing” at least once. Maybe that’s in the employee manual somewhere.

Sasha’s obsession goes way further—more into awestruck love territory.

She speaks his name like she’s whispering hallowed secrets to the Greek oracles atop Mount Olympus—Mr. Drummond this, Mr. Drummond that. Amazing Mr. Drummond.

“Mr. Drummond is not the most sociable person in the world,” Sasha breathlessly informed me the day I started. “He has extremely high standards—for himself and for his employees—but his amazing breakthroughs save lives every day. The work we do to support him makes that possible.” And then she’d looked me deeply in the eyes and said, This is the most important job you’ll ever have.

I’d just nodded while making a mental note to stay away from any brightly colored liquid.

Review – Knowing You by Rebecca Donovan

Knowing You -highres

Knowing You
by Rebecca Donovan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rebecca Donovan’s Cursed series has quickly become my KRYPTONITE, continuing to catapult me like canons to my heart, first with If I’d Known and now with Knowing You. If I’d Known is so good, but its sequel is even better! Knowing You is an intricately-woven, edge-of-your-seat young adult journey of self-discovery, parallel paths, destiny, love, and the virtues that weave them together. Knowing You is the best marriage of YA, romance and suspense! Dark spun with light, as virtues of good and evil floated like lingering ghosts, haunting and hitting my heart. My mind and body had the best workout where my heart raced, my pulse pounded, my soul shattered, and my mind chased everything . . . everywhere. I was so CONSUMED with this story!


I’m being suffocated by secrets. And most aren’t even mine.

With an intrigue factor that’s off the charts and a burning intensity that’s its own rush, Knowing You plays as a Cruel Intentions-like movie in your head while reading. An adventure in words set in a wealthy boarding school for struggling young adults, Knowing You is told through a troubled but truthful teen girl and her circle of equally-troubled but true friends. The cast of charismatic characters in this spellbinding saga are simply striking—so full of life—that you can’t help but fall under their spell. You can’t help but fall hard for Knowing You’s masterfully-crafted storyline that’s a complex web of suspense wrapped in virtues, one that delivers a satisfying, but shocking twist ending.


”The moment I met you, it was like you’ve always existed in my life.”

Knowing You is an ENTHRALLING and EMOTIONALLY RICH coming of age journey woven in virtues. It’s a lesson of love and the power of friendship to help heal lifelong wounds. It’s bits of ugly woven with bits of beauty and all the angst. It’s darkness mixed with light. It’s deception meets devotion. It’s one of those WOW stories—so raw that it screams real—that bares you open, as it bares itself to you, where you’re a character in this adventure too. It’s a THRILLING and TOUCHING tale of truth amidst the twists, turns, and terror.


”I want to hear your truths.”

Secret after secret. Lie after lie. Truth upon truth. Knowing You is haunting, harrowing, and heartfelt. Rebecca Donovan took me on a tantalizing trip into the teenage mind where I rode an emotional roller coaster of thrills, twists, and turns that made my pulse pound and my heart soar! This YA adventure of virtues is intriguing, intellectually rich, and intense. Knowing You is a twisted and tender tale that talks to the soul. It’s UNIQUE. It’s UNFORGETTABLE. It’s EVERYTHING. I’m still stuck in this story and may never leave.


”Love never hurts. Not ever.”

💋💋💋💋💋 haunting, heartfelt, and honest kisses

Review – The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young

The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something special in a young adult romance. That angst from the uncertainty of being not quite a child but not quite an adult either. That bit of childhood innocence resonating through the story. That trip down memory lane it takes to those teenage years, sparking good and trying times. The glue that usually cements YA stories—with tough topics, frustrating feelings, smoldering and sweet scenes, and lots of depth—together is hope. Who doesn’t need a little hope in their life?

”How do you conquer each moment, when you have no one on your side?”

Hope meets heart in The Fragile Ordinary in one STAGGERING EMOTIONAL JOURNEY. The fierce and fiery angst of this teen romance made my pulse pound and my heart beat out of my chest. This beautifully broken book brought tears to my eyes as I broke for a broken girl in a broken family. I felt the angst. I felt the heartbreak. I felt the hope. I felt the heart-fluttering love. I FELT EVERYTHING in this stunning story that speaks to the soul.

To thine own self be true. Be true to yourself.

A compelling coming of age love story laced with Hamlet, The Fragile Ordinary’s underlying themes of being true to oneself and daring to be different strike straight to the teenage soul. Told through a struggling but strong teen girl who is beautiful inside out, The Fragile Ordinary shows the value of life and love, and what it means to truly be loved and really live. The characters are full of fire with a story so heady, so harrowing, so hopeful, and so heartfelt. Broken sees broken, and Comet and Tobias are two kindred spirits with beautiful hearts who are perfect together. A slow burn of two broken souls becoming whole, The Fragile Ordinary is an in-depth dive into the teen heart and soul felt everywhere.

”And . . . What if what I really want is you?”

“Then you have me.”

The Fragile Ordinary. Fragile because the human heart is delicate with the teen’s heart the most delicate of all. But ordinary?!? Not at all. Heartbreakingly beautiful and passionately poignant, The Fragile Ordinary flawlessly captures the delicate teen heart and the depth of resulting emotions in a devastatingly stunning story that is nothing but EXTRAORDINARY. Samantha Young has written another heartfelt and harrowing love story that belongs on every young adult shelf.

”The real beauty of life is in the fragile ordinary.”

View all my reviews

I am Comet Caldwell.

And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name.

People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she’ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky.

But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away.

When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet. Targeted by bullies and thrown into the spotlight, Comet and Tobias can go their separate ways…or take a risk on something extraordinary.

Down Deep by Kimberly Kincaid

5 out of 5 stars

You say firefighter, I say yes please! Kimberly Kincaid definitely won me over with this one. Two strong main characters with secrets buried literally down deep. It will wind up explosive, literally and figuratively.

The two are definitely headstrong. There is a definite sizzle between the two and things are about to heat up quickly, but not in the way they hoped. When Gamble smells fire, his instincts kick in and all he can think of is getting Kennedy to safety. Once safely outside, he realizes this is more than just a fire and Kennedy is holding tight to some secrets that he needs to pull from her.

I genuinely enjoyed this story and am truly looking forward to more from the author. I was sold at a marine turned firefighter! Who wouldn’t be? 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Are you ready to go deep and feel the burn?

From USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Kincaid comes DOWN DEEP, the next standalone title in theStation Seventeen series, releasing June 18th! Grab you copy today!

Ian Gamble has a past he’d rather forget—which is exactly what he’s doing at The Crooked Angel Bar and Grill when the place catches fire. Between his active duty in the Marines and his experience as a firefighter, his instincts get him and hot, headstrong bar manager, Kennedy Matthews, to safety. But those same instincts kick into high gear when the fire is ruled an arson, and he discovers Kennedy’s got secrets of her own.

The only thing that matters more to Kennedy than her bar is her brother. When she finds out he’s in over his head with a dangerous arsonist, she’ll do anything to keep him safe—even if it means teaming up with Gamble, who’s too sharp-eyed and hard-bodied for his own good. With every step, their attraction flares hotter and the risks grow more dangerous. Can Gamble and Kennedy face their fears—and their secrets—to catch a terrifying enemy? Or will they go down in flames?

Kennedy exhaled for the first time in ten minutes. When faced with fight or flight, she’d go with fight every single time and twice on Sundays. That still didn’t change the fact that the adrenaline was a bitch to manage. Add to it that she hadn’t needed to forcibly boot anyone from The Crooked Angel in over a year—even then, Javier had done the actual handiwork—and she was definitely out of practice with the defenses that had once been daily survival skills.

You sure you’re not going to get soft on me if you move out of the neighborhood, sis?

Setting her shoulders despite the ache that was making a comeback now that her nervous system was (sort of) returning to business as usual, Kennedy spun toward the pass-through at the far end of the bar. Gamble followed her to the customer side, taking a decent-sized draw from his water before putting it out of the way, shrugging out of his leather jacket, and grabbing the nearest bar stool. She had to admit, having him stick around and walk her to her car was smart from a strategic standpoint, and his quiet, steadfast presence calmed her down.

Even if the way he’d trusted her to handle herself had revved her way up.

“So,” Gamble said, yanking her back from crazytown as he turned the stool in his grasp upside-down and put it on top of the bar. “How did a woman like you end up managing a place like The Crooked Angel, anyway?”

“A woman like me,” Kennedy repeated, treating the stool in front of her to an expert flip.

If Gamble had caught the steel in her tone, he didn’t show it by backing down. “Yeah. Something tells me they don’t teach hammerlocks like that at Remington University.”

She released her bar stool to cross her arms over her chest. “Are you saying I don’t look smart enough to have a college degree?”

“I’m saying you look like you have a story,” he qualified, and her muscles burned with a fresh shot of fatigue.

“Yeah, well, I’m not about to tuck you into bed with a glass of warm milk and tell it to you.”

Gamble flipped another bar stool over, the ink on his left arm dancing with the flex and release of his ridiculously well-defined biceps. “Why not? We’ve got a little time to kill while we finish up in here, right?”

“We do,” Kennedy said slowly, moving another stool to its proper place. They’d reached the end of the bar, where one last stool remained in front of four shots of tequila. Gamble’s eyes met hers, glinting briefly, and God, she wasn’t the only one with a story. But since she knew he wasn’t about to get all loose-lipped, and he was right about them having some time to kill while she finished closing the bar down, she figured what the hell. Her background wasn’t exactly top secret information, and it was less awkward than shooting the shit about something mundane, like the weather.

“I guess I ended up here the way most people end up where they work. I applied for the job and got it.”

Bypassing the shots of tequila and the last bar stool—at least, for now—Kennedy moved back to the pass-through at the other end of the bar with Gamble right behind her.

“Did you always want to manage a bar and grill?” he asked, mirroring her movements as she began restocking clean wine glasses in the racks behind the bar.

“Not always. When I was a kid, I wanted to be Wonder Woman.”

He rumbled out a laugh. “Not a bad pick, but something tells me there’s not a lot of availability for a position like that.”

Kennedy bit back the urge to tell him there had probably been an equal likelihood of her honestly working her way out of North Point as there had been of her becoming a superhero. “Exactly. And while office jobs work out great for a lot of people, they’re not really my jam, so I decided the restaurant industry was a good way to go.”

“Yeah, I’m not a nine-to-fiver, either,” Gamble said. “Not that I don’t respect those kinds of jobs. I just wouldn’t last more than two minutes doing one.”

Curiosity flickered in her mind, and she put it to words. “So, what did you want to be when you were a kid?”

“Race car driver,” he said, taking the last wine glass from the tray in front of them and putting it carefully in place. “But I decided it’d be safer to run into burning buildings instead, so here I am.”

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-selling author and a 2015 RWA RITA® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.

Review – The Distiller’s Darling by Rebecca Norinne and Jamaila Brinkley

5 out of 5 stars
Holy HOTNESS!! This book really kicked off with a banger, and I mean that literally. I thought my tablet was going to go up in flames. There is definitely no lack of heat in this book, proving that this author duo is is quickly becoming a powerful force to be reckoned with!
Take two independent, stubborn, sexy as sin people together and you’re asking for combustion. Neither are big on the commitment idea, Naomi even more so. Damn she us one stubborn woman. Lol. Iain is definitely dominate and set in his ways as well. Both are determined to do everything in their power to prove their parents wrong. With the burning chemistry between them, they decide to on a 3 month, no strings attached relationship, but the two of them are in for more then they bargained for.
It was nice seeing Noah and his crazy self making me laugh. I’m looking forward to more from this dynamic duo.

Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn’t going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.

Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.
But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

The Distillers DarlingExcerpt

Naomi opened her mouth to speak, then immediately closed it. She tilted her head to the side and studied him for a couple of seconds. Heres the deal,she said eventually, pulling her hand away and crossing her arms over her chest. I dont sleep with people I work with. Call me old-fashioned, but I never mix business with pleasure. You can either hire me to do your labels, or you can come back to my house and fuck my brains out. Your choice.She finished by raising one elegant eyebrow at him.

Having seen her work, Iain knew what he wanted his labels to look like. But he also knew no woman had made his pulse quicken and his blood run hot and furious through his veins the way this one did. There really was no choice at all.

He slid from the booth and reached into his back pocket. Pulling out his wallet, he dropped two twenty-dollar bills on the tableenough to cover their lunches, plus a hefty tip. Will losing my business impact your bottom line?

Naomi smiled up at him and licked her lips. Not even remotely.

Then lets get out of here.He turned and made his way to the exit, knowing deep in his bonesand elsewhereshed be right behind him.

Twenty agonizingly long minutes later, they stumbled through the door of a charming bungalow several blocks from the restaurant, their limbs twined around each other and their mouths fused together.

Iain kicked the door closed and hoisted Naomi up by her ass, her long, lithe legs wrapping around his waist before he backed her against it. He kissed a path down her jaw to reach the pulse beating violently in her neck. He sucked the dancing point into his mouth and then, moving lower, tongued the frilly lace edge of her bra.

Bedroom?he asked against her soft skin.

Down the hall.Naomi tugged on his belt buckle and then popped the button of his jeans before lowering the zipper. Reaching her hand down the front of his trousers, she cupped him over his boxer briefs and squeezed.

Iain groaned and dropped his head back to stare up at the ceiling while she continued stroking him. Fuck, that feels fantastic.He blew out a long breath, thankful he hadnt misremembered how talented Naomi was with her hands.

Then this will feel even better.She slid down the length of him to land on her knees, lowering his clothes as she went.

Iains head fell forward when she wrapped her slender fingers around his cock and angled it toward her mouth, her eyes trained on him the entire time. She licked him from root to tip, and with a hum of approval, swirled her tongue around his crown like it was a Teddys 99 on a hot summer day. Hed never look at ice cream cones the same way again. Christ, woman.

Naomi flashed him a wicked grin and then took him deep. Those were the last words out of his mouth until he came with a shout.

With his hands flattened against the door and his chest heaving in and out, he stared down at the beautiful woman on her knees in front of him. Youre fucking perfect.

I know.Naomi pushed to her feet, then grabbed his hand and led him through the foyer, past the eclectically-decorated living room, and into a darkened room dominated by a wrought iron four poster bed. She kicked off her shoes, yanked her pale blue blouse off over her head, slid her trousers down her long legs, and then climbed naked on top of the fluffy white duvet.

Iain eyed her greedily as she rested against the enormous pile of pillows at her back. Then she trailed her fingers down the expanse of her creamy white skin until she reached the small slope of her belly. He watched with rapt attention as she traced a light pattern over the flesh there until goosebumps sprouted.

And then they coasted lower and lower and lower.And now youre going to return the favor.

Hell yeah, he was.

Review- Girl Forsaken by Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers

5 out of 5 stars

I’ve been a huge fan of Graceley Knox from her very first book. It’s very exciting seeing her journey on and continue pumping out one amazing book after another. Seeing her pair up with another author, D.D., is just amazing.

This is a continuation of book 1. You must read book 1 before starting this one. Sasha is still kickass and caught in a triangle. I love triangles. I know a lot of people don’t but I love the mystery behind them.

Action packed and fast paced, you’ll read this book in one sitting. Be careful for that cliffy😉😉. Book 3 is coming soon. What will the future bring?

Every betrayal begins with trust . . .

A lot has happened since the brutal attack that transformed Sasha Keleterina into one of the undead. She’s left Arsen and the Draugur vampires behind but dealing with Niko and his advances almost sends her crawling back. Though Arsen continues to beg for her forgiveness, she’s still too raw from his betrayal to be near him.

When Jackson learns the truth about Sasha’s attack, Sasha is once again conflicted about where her loyalties lie and who her true friends are. The clock is ticking, and with an all-out war on the horizon, Sasha desperately fights to find a cure to save not just the vampires . . . but herself.

Who knew being a vampire would be so tough?
