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.

Enter to Win a SIGNED Paperback of THE DISTILLER’S DARLING, a tote bag, and an artistic surprise

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?

Review – Rock King by Tara Leigh

5 out of 5 stars

Tara once again takes my expectations and smashes them to a million pieces. I knew this was going to be an amazing book, but it soared beyond what I ever expected. You will read this book thinking you’re reading a book by an author whose been at it for many years. It still blows me away that Tara is relatively new but I never knew until she told me herself. I still had trouble believing it.

First off, who doesn’t love a rock star romance? Well forget what you’ve read, Tara is in a class of her own. This book had me flying high and feeling the angst and brokenness of both characters. We know they both have a past which they are hiding from each other and the world. It makes this story that much more emotional.

Watching the evolution of these two souls is so beautiful and at times heartbreaking. I feel that this is a book everyone needs to read whether rock stars are your thing or not. Tara will make you a believer! She will have you thirsting for more! Keep your eyes peeled for Rock Legend coming July 17th.

Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I’m not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that’s what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money – and women – than I know what to do with. But what you don’t see is the wreckage I’ve caused. The memories and pain I can’t escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn’t work. It hurt me and – worse – it hurt my band. That’s the last thing I want to do, so I’m cleaning up my act… starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice – Delaney is the perfect “girlfriend.” When I’m with her I don’t have to pretend. It’s like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that’s dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn’t actually exist. He’s a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it’s impossible to love a lie, right?

Review – Misadventures With A Rock Star by Helen Hardt

5 out of 5 stars

OMG Helen!! This book was so mind blowing my addicting that I never wanted it to end. This book is so different than what I’m used to from you, and I loved it just as much.

Really the best word to describe this book is SCORCHING!!! I seriously thought my tablet was going to go up in flames. This was by far the hottest book you’ve ever written, but I love that you still had that beautiful signature Helen Hardt storyline that made it complete.

You know I love your Steele boys, but I gotta tell you, I REALLY REALLY want my own Jett Draconis ASAP! This book was a pure testament to the amazing writing and creativity uniqueness that I have come to love from Helen. She truly can write about anything and turn it into gold!

#MisadventureswithaRockStar

Synopsis:

Heather Myles isn’t exactly thrilled to accompany her groupie roommate to an Emerald Phoenix concert. The aspiring screen writer would rather be home with a good book. After Susie pleads with her, though, Heather relents. What the heck? Maybe a change of scenery is just what she needs to combat her desolation over getting turned down by yet another small production company.

After the performance, Jett Draconis, lead singer and guitarist for the band, isn’t up for the party scene. He’s grown tired of being mauled by horny devotees…until an auburn-haired goddess catches his eye. Though she initially rebuffs his advances, he’s determined not to take no for an answer. Sparks erupt between him and Heather, but Jett knows better than to fall in love. A secret from his past could destroy him—and everyone close to him—if he does.

Review- Julien by Ella Frank

5 out of 5 stars

Once again Ella delivers on a highly anticipated book. I was drawn in since book 1 and was so hooked that I counted down the days til book 2 .

We delve further into emotions in this book. We learn more about Julien, Priest and Robbie which makes us fall in love with them even more. Secrets are confessed, sheets are burned up, and their relationship only grows stronger. I can’t wait for book 3!

Confessions: Julien, book two in the steamy contemporary MMM Confessions Series from Ella Frank, is available NOW!

Synopsis

People are complex.

Love a double-edged sword.

And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time…

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about.

To the outside world, he has it all.

A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life.

But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It’s a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn’t know what he’s helping Julien to fight. He doesn’t know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister’s death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out.

And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did?

Only time will tell.

Chapter One

CONFESSION

Those who are meant to be yours

will always find you.

“WE MEET again, Mr. Thornton.”

A shiver of awareness raced up Julien Thornton’s spine as he stood in the jail cell of a downtown L.A. police station where he’d been thrown around an hour ago for public intoxication.

He didn’t need to turn to know who was on the opposite side of those steel bars. That voice was the one he’d been hoping to hear when he’d made his “one call” and left a message after a generic voicemail. That voice? It had been on his mind since the last time he’d heard it, nearly two weeks earlier when he’d met—and attempted to steal the car of—a man who called himself Priest.

Julien pivoted on his heels, and when he did, he realized that he’d grossly underestimated the impact that Joel Priestley had had on him the first time around.

Oui, he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about him, that was true, and oui, he might’ve purposely provoked the police officer tonight hoping he’d end up needing a lawyer. But Dieu, he’d forgotten the way Priest made his body respond. Like an inferno was licking through his veins.

With auburn hair, stormy eyes, and a presence that Julien gravitated toward like a magnetic force, he didn’t think anything could prepare a person for the powerful energy Priest exuded. Not to mention that cool, judgmental stare of his.

But Julien had no one to blame for that judgment but himself. Maybe if they didn’t always meet at the end of one of his week-long benders, he could have the upper hand with this man for once. And wouldn’t that be délicieux, he thought, as he looked at the lawyer who’d dropped him home two weeks before, instead of at the police station like he’d originally threatened.

Priest was as put together now, at three in the morning, as he had been that afternoon in the alley. Suited up in a tailored navy number that framed his broad shoulders and emphasized the rich color of his hair, he looked sharp, controlled, and dangerous to Julien’s already unstable state of mind as he stood there sizing him up with an unreadable expression.

“I’m curious,” Priest finally said, as he clasped his hands behind his back and took a step closer to the cell where Julien had spent most of the night sobering up. “Did you not understand me the last time we spoke?”

Julien clenched his jaw and wondered if Priest realized how condescending he sounded when he spoke—or just how much it turned Julien on. “Non. I understood just fine.”

“Then what part of ‘I won’t be so lenient next time’ made you think that calling me to bail you out of here was a good idea?”

Julien was still trying to work that out himself, but thought it might have something to do with the fact that he was drawn to this man. There was something about Priest that made him feel alive, when all he’d felt for months now was dead inside.

When Julien didn’t respond, Priest cocked his head, studying him closely, the disapproval rolling off him in waves. “Are you that hard up for a date that this was the only way you could think to get one?”

Putain, the man was arrogant. But for reasons Julien couldn’t explain, that seemed to make him all the more appealing. “You’re the one who gave me your card the last time we met. Perhaps it’s you who are hard up for a date, monsieur. Giving your number out to—”

“Criminals?” Priest frowned. “No. That’s called smart business acumen, considering I’m a criminal attorney.”

Julien scoffed. “I’m hardly a criminal.”

“Really?” Priest said, and took his time examining the six-by-eight space Julien currently stood in. He then leaned forward and said in a lowered voice, “Your current situation tells a different kind of story.”

Despite his “current situation,” and the reason he’d gotten himself into it, Julien felt his lips curve, and he realized exactly why he was drawn to Priest. He possessed the one thing that Julien had been looking for—the ability to take his mind off the black hole his life had become. “Maybe it’s le destin.”

“And what does that mean? Destiny?” Priest straightened and brought his arm around to check the time. “I doubt destiny has anything to do with it. A more likely scenario is that I was your only option.”

“Even if that’s true,” Julien said as he wrapped his fingers around the bars, “you came anyway.”

“As I said before, it’s my job.”

“At three in the morning?”

“At any hour of the morning,” Priest said, and then looked down the hallway that was devoid of anything other than dreary off-white tiles and horribly bright fluorescent lighting. “I’m going to go and see if I can get you out, and then you and I are going to have a talk.”

Something about the way Priest said you and I made Julien’s pulse race, and as Priest went to walk away, Julien whispered, “J’ai vraiment hâte,” and the ever-so-serious lawyer stopped in his tracks and looked back.

This time when those eyes roamed over Julien, his breath caught. There was nothing cool about that stare now. There was heat, interest, and an intensity that made Julien’s fingers tighten around the bars before Priest cut the connection and walked away.

Julien watched him go until he disappeared around the end of the hall, and then he released his breath on a rush. Merde. He’d never been so attracted to someone in all his life, and as he stood there waiting for Priest to save him yet again, Julien knew he needed to stop what he was thinking.

There was no way in hell he deserved someone like that. Non, no way at all. That didn’t, however, stop him from counting down the minutes until Priest returned to him…

Review – I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A MUST-READ ROMANCE!

💋💋💋💋💋 flipping hot and heart-happy kisses

View all my reviews

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

Turns out it’s neither.

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

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

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

Review – All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire

All the Little Lights

All the Little Lights
by Jamie McGuire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



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

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

”You can’t save everyone.”

“I just want to save her.”

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

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

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

”Pain is beautiful?”

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

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

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

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

”We could save each other.”

All the Little Lights 2

Review – Fighting For Everything by Laura Kaye

5 out of 5 stars

Once again Laura gives us a book that is way more emotionally in depth than you expect. I absolutely love her ability to truly give you a real glimpse into the life of soldiers coming home with PTSD. She absolutely nailed it!

I love my characters flawed, and Noah fit that description perfectly. After losing half his hearing and vision, Noah is not the same man he used to be. He wants to be left alone, so when his bedtime friend since childhood, Kristin, shows up he knows he can’t taint her with his demons. Problem is his body and heart are warring each other for what they want.

Kristin just wants to be there for Noah just like always. She isn’t prepared for his hot/cold mood swings but is determined to stick it out because that’s what vest friends fo do.

The chemistry between these two builds and builds until it turns into a powder keg that explodes. When Noah discovered the fight club, he finds a way to release all that pent up hurt and emotion.

This is truly a fantastic read. I love Laura and her accuracy of describing what veterans go through once they come back from combat.

From New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye, comes the first standalone title in her brand, new Warrior Fight Club series, FIGHTING FOR EVERYTHING. Join the Warrior Fight Club world today!

About FIGHTING FOR EVERYTHING (Warrior Fight Club #1, 5/22/18):

Loving her is the biggest fight of his life…

Home from the Marines, Noah Cortez has a secret he doesn’t want his oldest friend, Kristina Moore, to know. It kills him to push her away, especially when he’s noticing just how sexy and confident she’s become in his absence. But, angry and full of fight, he’s not the same man anymore either. Which is why Warrior Fight Club sounds so good.
Kristina loves teaching, but she wants more out of life. She wants Noah—the boy she’s crushed on and waited for. Except Noah is all man now—in ways both oh so good and troubling, too. Still, she wants who he’s become—every war-hardened inch. And when they finally stop fighting their attraction, it’s everything Kristina never dared hope for.
But Noah is secretly spiraling, and when he lashes out, it threatens what he and Kristina have found. The brotherhood of the fight club helps him confront his demons, but only Noah can convince the woman he loves that he’s finally ready to fight for everything.

“I’m no good right now, Kristina,” Noah said in a low voice.

She shook her head. “That’s not true. You’ve been through something horrible. And you’re still recovering. Still hurting. That’s all understandable—”

“I am fucked in the head. You saw it yourself. Twice,” he said, his voice suddenly loud, bitter. Under her hands, his muscles tensed.

“You are not fucked in the head,” she said, anger and determination gathering deep in her belly. Not anger at Noah, but irrational anger for him. She hated that things had happened to him that left him feeling this way. So out of control, so sad, so unlike himself. “Sure, you have things you’re dealing with. And you will get a handle on them—”

“No,” he said, shaking her off and pacing in the narrow space behind the door. “You don’t understand. I’m…” Noah’s hands squeezed into fists at his sides. “…so goddamned angry. All the time. It feels like I could tear the world to pieces. And I want to.” He whirled on her. “Because the perfection of everything around me makes me feel so much more wrecked inside that I can barely breathe.”

Oh, God.

Tears pricked at the backs of her eyes, but she wouldn’t let them fall. She wouldn’t let herself fall apart. Not now. Not in front of him. Not when Noah needed to lean on her so damn badly. “The world around you is not perfect, Noah. It’s an illusion. And you are not wrecked—”

“I am.” He got right up in her face.

Kristina held her ground. “You’re not—”

“I am!”

“Noah—”

He grabbed her by the arms, not so much that it hurt, but with enough force that it surprised her. “Here’s your proof. I want to fuck you, Kristina. I want to bury myself in you and stay there forever. Just lose myself in you until I don’t know who I am anymore. I’ve been fantasizing about it, dreaming about it, imagining it. Having you is all I can fucking think about. Do you understand what I’m saying?”

Noah’s words unleashed a flash fire in Kristina’s blood. Her heart tripped into a sprint. Her breathing shallowed out. Heat roared across her skin. One heartbeat. Two. And Kristina knew what she had to do.

Acting on instinct, she pulled out of Noah’s grip and stepped backward. Away from his confession. Away from him.

Review – One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Game on. Adalyn will be mine.

💋💋💋💋💋 heart-crashing and breath-stealing kisses

View all my reviews

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

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

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

Review – This Time Around by Aimee Nicole Walker

5 out of 5 stars

Blissville is a series I never want to end. Aimee just sucks you into the book, making you feel like you’re right there in Blissville with the whole gang. I absolutely loved everything about this story. That’s nothing new. Aimee can write no wrong! I feel like I’m always in a constant state of bliss while reading her stories and love how each one deals with real issues in this world. The struggles that gay men have to face but come out stronger on the other side! She brings joy and hope that one day everyone will be so open minded, making this world a better place. For now, when I need happiness, I’ll sink myself into Aimee’s words and relax in bliss.

The history between Andy and Milo is heartbreaking. The way things went down between them 12 years prior was awful on both accounts. They both turned to their own vices to cope, Andy’s just happened to be way more destructive. Watching him get himself back on track and stay there made my heart flutter. I was so proud of him and his dedication to be his best.

Milo was so angry at what went down 12 years ago. Andy never really knew what prompted that breakup over text, but when he steps into Milo’s coffee shop with determination, he will soon find out. Milo was rightfully heart and justified in keeping his guard up when Andy comes waltzing back into his life like a bulldozer. He’s not going down without a fight!

We essentially have a lovers to enemies back to lovers read on our hands, and Aimee nailed every single word! Watching these two navigate the rough waters and find themselves back where they belong was so beautifully eloquent! I could not ask for more. Aimee continues to prove why she is a top author on my list FOREVER!

THIS TIME AROUND

A ROAD TO BLISSVILLE STORY

AIMEE NICOLE WALKER

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 05.05.18

Design: Jay Aheer of Simply Defined Art

Photographer: Christopher John of CJC Photography

Model: Jeremiah

At the café Milo Miracle co-owns with his twin sister, coffee and pastries are served up along with his unique blend of sass and snark. Milo knows that small-town life often means that every day is the same as the one before, and excitement can only be found in the gossip that travels faster than the speed of light. When the dark-haired Adonis who broke his heart returns home after a twelve-year absence, Milo unhappily finds himself at the center of Blissville’s favorite pastime.

Andy Mason was practically a kid when he left home to pursue big-league ambitions, but the man who returns to Blissville is humbled by shattered dreams and secrets he’s not ready to share with Milo. Andy’s no stranger to grit and determination, and he’ll need both to win back Milo’s cynical heart.

Strong wills clash with stubborn hearts, triggering combustible passion once Andy starts renovations at the café. Milo would like to keep Andy’s hands busy doing something other than construction. Andy would like to suggest what Milo can do with his wicked tongue besides trade barbs with him. Neither man is willing to budge until they get a little shove from an outside force. Will Andy and Milo learn that trust is a two-way street, or will this time around end as disastrous as the first?

This time around is a witty, sexy, and endearing love story about two men who learn how to balance push and pull, both in and out of the bedroom. It is the fourth book in the Road to Blissville series but can be read as a standalone book. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults eighteen and over.

When Andy reached the top of the steps, he found a light switch on the wall. Only one socket had a bulb in it, so it wasn’t bright enough for Andy to see anything besides trunks and trunks of stuff stacked everywhere.

I turned my head slightly to the left and saw the outline of a woman’s silhouette out of the corner of my eyes. “Ghost!” I yelled, then dove behind Andy.

“Where?” Andy asked, turning in circles and swinging his flashlight to illuminate every corner of the dark, dusty space. “That?” he asked.

I peeked around his broad back and ducked my head under his armpit to see. In the center of the flashlight beam was one of those old-fashioned wire mannequins they used to hang dresses on. In fact, the mannequin sported a flowing, white dress that looked like something a woman wore in the eighteen hundreds. Of course, the white color of the gown in contrast to the dark space gave it a ghostly appearance.

“Seriously, Milo? I nearly pissed myself over a mannequin.”

“You almost jizzed yourself earlier.”

“Don’t pretend I didn’t feel your hard-on pressing up against mine, Milo.”

“True, but that wasn’t what I was referring to.”

“Then what the fuck are you talking about?” Andy asked, sounding angry all over again.

“Simon!”

“You want to talk about Simon, Milo? We’ll talk about Simon.”

“Fine, I’m going first. Since when does your uncle want to fix you up with your cousin? What kind of fuckery is this?”

“Paul isn’t my biological uncle,” Andy said. “He and my dad are best friends. Uncle was an honorary title I gave him when I was a kid.”

“Oh.” Yeah, that took the wind right out of my sails. “Are you going to take Simon on a date?”

“Should I, Milo? Is he good in bed?”

I gasped dramatically, of course. “Are you slut shaming me?”

“Are you acting slutty?”

“And if I was?” I demanded to know.

Silence. “You make me fucking crazy, Milo.”

“That makes two of us.” I realized what I said. “Wait. I meant that you make me crazy too. So crazy that I can’t even think. You rob me of my ability to snark.”

“You act as if that’s a talent,” Andy scoffed.

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.
