Review – Truth Revealed by KD Robichaux

Truth Revealed Ebook Cover

Review graphic

My heart wasn’t ready for this.
My soul wasn’t prepared to be shattered.
This journey with Vi and Corbin was not easy for me…. but oh. Oh, it was worth it. Every laugh. Every sobbing tear. Every swoon worthy scene. Every utterly sexy word and command from Corbin’s mouth. Every show of strength and tenacity from Vi.

It was worth it. Truth Revealed is perfection.

It’s been a decade since Vi and Corbin have divorced. Ten years since a lie destroyed everything that ever mattered to the both of them. They have both managed to move on. But while some things have changed, some things have stayed the same. Corbin and Vi can’t let each other go. They aren’t far from each other’s thoughts. So have they really moved on? It seems they haven’t. Clearly for Vi there can never be anyone that compares to the truest love of her life. Corbin still claims his little wife. He seeths at the thought of anyone touching her.

Opportunities arise. Things are about to change and they will never be the same once the truth of the last ten years is revealed.

I read Truth with my heart in my throat. There were plenty of late nights with Vi and Corbin. This book is so full of angst, heartbreak, loss… all of that, yes. But there is tremendous healing, strength and powerful enlightening moments. True love still shining just as bright as ever. The story is so well paced, so incredibly moving. I have never known a couple like these two. Their love story is so real. This isn’t just a story… could be me or you. So many touching moments, still so many belly laughs. And holy smokes! Corbin is the master of his sexual prowess. That hasn’t changed in ten years. If anything it’s even hotter! Even sexier. This man sent chills up my spine and had me running for a fan! He is sex walking. Then there’s Vi. So strong, so resilient. She’s a survivor and managed to take her horrible ordeal and turn it into something that empowered her. Damn if she didn’t make me cheer out loud for her throughout this entire story. She is Belle, Wonder Woman and Lois Lane all rolled into one!

I cannot begin to tell Kayla how much this book – in fact, this duet – meant to me. It is beautifully written, lovingly researched. It shows in every word that I read. It shows in how Vi and Corbin are still with me and how I still message Kayla to tell her how much I miss them. This is one duet you cannot miss. It is a must read! Thank you, Kayla, for letting me be a part of Vi and Corbin’s story.

Six Incredible Stars!


Truth Revealed Teaser 1


It’s been a decade since I divorced the love of my life, after her confession while I was deployed.
Ten years since I spoke to Vi, my soul mate, the girl who had brought me to life only to stab me in the heart, sending me into an even darker state than where I was before I met her.
Ten years, I’ve been watching her from afar, keeping tabs.
After a decade in the Army, two Purple Hearts and a Medal of Honor under my belt, I was kicked out with an honorable discharge, knowing no other skill than One Shot One Kill. Two years later, I’m part of a group of mercenaries who carry out justice. Criminals who hide behind their fancy lawyers and power—we take care of them and make it all look like karma. And with intel from our founder, Dr. Walker, a therapist with a long list of predators whose victims were too scared to turn them in, work is plenty and fulfilling.

Until Vi begins her sessions and I discover the reality I’ve lived the past ten years was nothing but a lie, when the truth is revealed.

Review – Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

DFRM Cover

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes you have to play dirty, and oh did Laurelin Paige take me on a deliciously dirty ride with Dirty Filthy Rich Men! Dirty Filthy Rich Men dances in the darkness but leaps towards the light, a magical mix of good and evil laced with sex and sin. This romance rages, smolders, and stings from start to finish, a tingling tale felt everywhere. Dirty Filthy Rich Men is a riveting roller coaster of a romance of tantalization and thrills…pure adrenaline-fueled addiction!

The outside world closed around me, ceasing to exist, as I was captive to the best Dirty Filthy Rich Men. I was tangled and twisted in every part of this thrilling tale from the start!
Pulse-pounding, breath-bating, mind-mesmerizing, heart-hitting, and soul-searing, Dirty Filthy Rich Men is not just a book; it’s an entrancing, electrifying and emotionally-entwined escape into another world…MY WORLD!!! I could not get enough of this deliciously dirty romance that raced through my head, as I raced to turn the pages, where I became dirty too. Dirty Filthy Rich Men was my angst…my ache…my addiction…my ALL!!!

He was a special kind of catnip.

This romance was my catnip. Dirty Filthy Rich Boys was my dark, dirty, and delicious drug…one I did not only want but NEED. I needed this story like air to breathe, as Dirty Filthy Rich Boys became my breath, branding me.

After ten years, Sabrina Lind is reunited with the dark and devilish man who stole her body and still dances in her dreams after so much time apart. Dark-haired, green-eyed, tall, and muscular Donovan Kincaid is both sinner and saint. Deliciously dirty and super rich, Donovan is the ultimate player. I did not want to like this mysterious man, but I could not help but fall hard and fast for this bad boy…scorching HOT in every way.

“The problem is that the thing you really want to stop isn’t me, it’s how you react.”

Donovan’s dominant words possessed me, lighting a fire that burned from head to toe where I MELTED like molten lava.

Sabrina and Donovan’s cat-and-mouse game was amplified, more racy and risky than ever. So THRILLING where I could not stop the surge of power from this story that permeated through me. 

I had the impulse to slap him, but it was lost when his mouth crashed against mine. Then I couldn’t think about anything but him—his hands, his body, his victory over me. It was such an easy surrender.

I could not help but combust from this fire-hot kiss that raked over my body as if I were floating over hot coals…so heated…so hot! The push and pull had me panting…wanting…needing more. The connection with Donovan and Sabrina was INTENSE, I felt it through my bones—a shiver through me—as their link was so strong that even if these two opposites were separated, the connection would be felt in spades. 

We were a set, bound together by Cellophane. It smothered, making it hard to breathe.

A thrilling and tantalizing tale of deliciously dirty players, Dirty Filthy Rich Men is a cat-and-mouse game of epic proportions, a HIGH felt all the way to the sky! Hudson may have to make room for Laurelin Paige’s most intense alpha yet!!! Donovan delivers the dark and dirty, and I want to bathe in his delicious darkness covered in dirt!

Dirty Filthy Rich Men is intense, intoxicating, and invigorating, a rush of adrenaline and angst straight to the core! This scintillating story SEDUCED ME…everywhere. I could not help but feel every word I read and live every part of this delectable and daring adventure. I LOVED this brilliant book so hard! Dirty Filthy Rich Men blazes with fire—bleeding angst— and oh did I get BURNED in what is Laurelin Paige’s best book yet!!! I still need another hit or ten of this delicious drug.

Oh Laurelin Paige! I am so addicted to this scintillating story and series that OWNS every ounce of me! So incredibly good! I could not devour this heart-stopping sexy and strong story fast enough. The plot is powerful, the characters are combustible, and the writing is off-the-charts incredible, flowing with a heady mix of feels and fire. Laurelin Paige has brought her A-game out to play in Dirty Filthy Rich Men, a gem that is as stunning as it is dirty. Oh did I love getting dirty!

★★★★★★ scintillating super stars

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.

Review – Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels

SIY Cover

Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes you read a book that is so beautiful that you’re left in a haze, floating in the air where life is more precious from above. I finished Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels days ago but it feels as if I’m still stuck in this story. Say I’m Yours rendered me in a dreamy daze—a story stupor—where I’m in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, drifting, going through the motions while my emotions are still entangled around these beautiful words. Passionately poignant and breathtakingly beautiful, Say I’m Yours hits the heart hard and slays the soul. Oh was my SOUL SLAYED!!!

Have you ever read a story that stole your soul and broke your heart on the very first page?
One page and…
Say I’m Yours hijacked my heart…breaking it…BREAKING ME.
One page and…
Say I’m Yours consumed me, claiming every part of me, commanding every feel.
One page and…
I was ALL IN…body…heart…soul…everything.
One page and…
I sank so fast where I was drowning in these words that crashed into me like big waves.
One page and…
I was screaming, “MINE!”

I knew the oldest Hennington brother’s story would break me and that it did. Trent was the Hennington that hijacked my heart the most, the one who may never leave me. Gracie has given 20 years of her life—along with her whole heart—to a man who won’t give all of his heart to her. Trent has always considered Gracie the only woman for him, but has let his fears come first, treating Gracie more like silver when she is nothing but pure gold. 

“If you ever loved me, even a little bit, you’ll let me go.”

SIY Teaser 3

Beautiful Gracie with her dark hair, blue eyes, and huge heart loves her childhood sweetheart, Trent Hennington, but she is done waiting for him to make her wholeheartedly his. I loved this gal, so sweet and strong!

“You forgot the part about where I want to be someone’s world.”

“You forgot the part where you already are.”

I held on, trying to stay strong, but tears trickled down my face, raindrops of sorrow and salvation.

Say I’m Yours has ALL of the ANGST!!! The PASSION POUNDED into me! My soul spun and my heart melted, a mix of sorrow and swoon, where I FELT ALL THE FEELS. These words shot sparks to my soul. These words made my heart beat out of its chest. These words WERE EVERYTHING!!! Say I’m Yours WAS EVERYTHING…MY EVERYTHING!

Oh Trent! Gorgeous blond-haired, blue-eyed, tall, muscular, and all-alpha Trent, I knew this man would be the most complex and broken brother, the one with a huge heart hidden under years of fears and layers of pain. I LOVED this sweet but stubborn man!

The passion penetrated between Gracie and Trent, as their love was raw. I FELT THEIR IMPENETRABLE CONNECTION, so caring and combustible. I LOVED Trent and Gracie together, and LOVED their story soooo hard! This couple felt REAL with their situation and happenings RELATABLE, as if their story could really happen, and that made Say I’m Yours even more special. This childhood love, the kind from soulmates, the one you root for to last forever had me rooting for this couple to last a lifetime. If only Trent would see the light through the dark, the light that is Gracie, his shining star who has guided him for a lifetime.

“It’s only ever been you.”

SIY Teaser

Trent TOOK MY TEARS!!! I felt his heartbreak, emphasized with his struggles, and knew this man was everything GREAT!!! I SWOONED HARD as these soul-wielding words clamped down on my heart, squeezing so many emotions out as I fell even more deeply in love with this story and this beautiful couple. Emotional ecstasy. Say I’m Yours was EMOTIONAL ECSTASY!!! I breathed every bit of Say I’m Yours in, some breaths bated, wanting it to last forever.

I gave my heart to Say I’m Yours, my whole heart, where it still remains long after I turned the last page. I gave my soul to this story—as if I had a choice—for it to be sucked in like a song, dragging me in, pulling me under, like a big wave. This soul-searing story struck me like a storm, fast and furiously, where I could only succumb to the words that were my world. Words…mere WORDS…rendered me so full of FEELS where I still felt and am feeling everything long after the story has stopped.

Say I’m Yours SLAYED MY SOUL. Say I’m Yours HIJACKED MY HEART. Say I’m Yours had my heart in its hands, shaking it, willing it to shatter, and shatter it did in spades. Say I’m Yours BROKE ME. Say I’m Yours BLEW ME AWAY!!! Say I’m Yours became MINE.

Say I’m Yours is not simply a broken and beautiful romance; it’s a story about LIFE AND LIVING. It’s about taking that LEAP OF FAITH…LIVING FOR THE MOMENT…LIVING LIFE NOW. EVERY WORD MATTERS that Corinne Michaels pens to life, so beautiful and brilliant. This author writes with all of her heart and steals readers’ hearts along the way. Say I’m Yours stole every piece of me in a story that is a top 2017 read and story I’ll fondly remember for life. Penned like paint to a canvas, so vivid and valuable, Say I’m Yours is one of those books that THAT SLAY YOUR SOUL AND OWN YOU FOR LIFE.

This love story is MAGNETIC, so MAGICAL that you can’t help but MELT, falling in love with every word in Say I’m Yours. My heart is still reeling and racing. These characters won’t stop dancing in my head. This tale took my tears, still imprinted in my eyes. This story stamped itself all over my soul, slaying every ounce. Say I’m Yours took everything out of me because this heartfelt story was MY EVERYTHING! My soul is still soaring high, as Say I’m Yours made itself MINE, claiming me from the first page in a heartfelt romance that will OWN ME for life. ❤️

★★★★★★ ‘I’m Yours’ Stars

From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new second chance standalone romance.

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.

Review – The Brave Line by Kate Stewart

The Brave Line by Kate Stewart 

My heart is pounding.

My palms are sweaty.

My skin is tingling.

My soul is singing.

Everything inside me is on fire. 

I am ridiculously happy. Floating high on a mighty blissful cloud of EPIC bookworm feels! I’m struggling to find words. I’m struggling to fully describe how perfect this story is. I don’t know how to really make sense of all my feelings in a way where people will understand. I’ve read all of Kate Stewart’s books and this book is without doubt her best yet. The Brave Line is OUTSTANDING

Everything about The Brave Line will just burn you to the core. It will cover every base, tick every single box and steal every part of your heart. I kid you not, you will FEEL IT ALL. There is no emotion you will not experience. When a book can be heart breaking but heart warming all at the same time you just know you’ve got yourself a winner. 

The Brave Line follows Michelle and Rowdy. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing these two are as individuals AND together. Both are incredibly broken, heavily influenced by very different pasts. Yet they are sensational in every way possible.

Michelle was a surprise to me. I never expected a character with such depth. Michelle stole my heart, almost immediately. I didn’t care that she wasn’t always perfect. I didn’t care that she had flaws and she wore them on her sleeve. I simply didn’t care because to me, Kate wrote her in a way that was understandable. We follow Michelle, we learn her past, we learn her pain and it made me FEEL for her, love her. 

I’m not sure where to begin with Rowdy. Everything I want to say about him would probably mean I was here until the end of time. I loved him that much. The guy attached himself onto my soul and wouldn’t budge. But then I wouldn’t want him too either. Rowdy is beautifully broken, built from devastation and pain. His hard exterior mixed with his want and need for better made him undeniably perfect. Rowdy rocked my world with his wicked ways and sinful mouth. Imagine my delight when the hot cop was also a dirty one. *praise hands* Even when Rowdy was being a total royal pain in the butt I adored him. Like Michelle I was drawn to him. And will remain drawn to him indefinitely.

Together though, together they consumed me. Together they wrecked me. Together they made me so happy. Nothing came easy for them, yet they worked. This book didn’t need any unnecessary drama from outside sources, Rowdy and Michelle had enough personal roadblocks to deal with and here is where Kate played on the passion and intensity of the characters. The relationship between them is tense and raw while being incredibly hot, but it’s also devastating and I spent so much time WISHING, FEELING, getting wayyy too emotional over the fact that their heartbreak was stopping them from finally being happy.
But by the end, the powerful, heartbreaking journey that I’d been on ended on the most blissful high. I’m not sure whether I devoured this book or it devoured me. My heart and soul have been tugged around, broken and rebuilt impeccably. I am so in love with this book that I don’t want to pick up another. I’ll happily remain in hungover state for a while. And no, I won’t feel bad about it, because The Brave Line is flawless perfection and will undoubtedly be one of my top reads of 2017.

She is a five foot seven long list of things he can’t have.

He is a determined cop, desperate to keep his heart sealed behind his badge.

Michelle is a survivor. With a fresh perspective on life, she trades her tragic past in California for the coastal waters of Charleston. Fueled by a new career as a dispatcher, she’s determined not to let her scars weigh her down. She apologizes for nothing, especially her insatiable need for a certain police officer.

Rowdy is a newly minted sergeant dedicated to his job, but the life of a Charleston police officer has never been more dangerous. With his need to take order of a city spiraling out of control, the last thing he wants is an entanglement with a mouthy dispatcher. But, there’s just one problem. He can’t get enough of her.

As the heat rises between the unlikely pair, so does the tension.

Three months of summer was all it took to shake their foundations, rattle their walls, and bring them crashing down.

It was lust.

It was love.

It was real.

And it would have been perfect . . . if it wasn’t already over.

Note to reader:

This book has several elements and explores topics that some may consider triggers. For mature audiences only. Explicit sex, violence and language.

Review – Hero Hair by Rachel Robinson 

Hero Hair by Rachel Robinson 

Holy Moly. I don’t know how Rachel Robinson does it? Hero Hair was nothing like I’d thought it would be. I wasn’t expecting my heart to pound as hard as it did. I wasn’t expecting my mind would spin as much as it did. I wasn’t expecting the halts in my breathing. I was not expecting to FEEL as many different emotion that I did. 

In Hero Hair the player gets played. And I’m not even talking about the hero. The heroine is as big a player as our lead guy. And I LOVED that!! It was refreshing to have two characters who were exactly the same, in life, with love and at playing the game.

The dynamic of our lead character’s relationship is set out flawlessly. I couldn’t have asked for better. The whole story line flows so perfectly that I was swept away in a blossoming romance that was light and fun but oh so freaking hot. I mean, HOLY WOAH! Macs & Teala are hotter than the burning flame. Their connectivity and intensity blasts out the pages and just catapults itself all over your body, causing heat prickles and tummy sloshes OF THE BEST KIND. They are filthy, dirty, raw, smutty creatures and I LOVED EVERY SINGLE PART OF IT! 
At 66%, something flipped in the story and my love for it solidified. Don’t get me wrong, I was already in love with Hero Hair but at this point, at 66%, I fell head over heels, into deep, intense love with it. 

This was also the point where Rachel flipped everything on its head and just made it MORE. All of a sudden it was even more consuming, I mean it killed me to stop reading to update my Goodreads progress! All of a sudden everything was more intense and more heart poundingly, brilliant. The suspense and rawness of what was happening held me on the edge of my seat. Everything in my body flamed hotter, my tummy continued its onslaught of even bigger sloshes and my emotions WERE A MESS. 

Hero Hair took me on a brutal, breathtaking adventure. One that caused me to shut everything else out because I literally couldn’t drag myself away. Everything was executed with perfection and brilliance. Everything was executed with passion and sincerity. Hero Hair was EVERYTHING. I can’t rate higher than 5 stars but if I could, Hero Hair would definitely take 10!

Everyone knows there is no “I” in team, but to Macs Newstead–orgasm-gifting, muscle-filled Navy SEAL hero–there are more important words than team. Words like victory and vanity and selfishness. People say those words like they are a bad thing, but to Macs, they’re simply tools in his highly effective arsenal. When a man’s entire existence revolves around the necessity to end lives, silly, mundane things like second dates or monogamy seem worthy sacrifices. 

Downward facing dog or doggy-style–it’s all the same to Teala Smart, a whip-smart yoga instructor. She owns her studio like she owns her life–with focus, positive energy, and pure devotion. That devotion, however, does not trickle into her love life (or more accurately, her lust life.) Relationships are a roadblock to her success. They get in the way and tangle up emotions more than the lotus pose tangles up limbs. Men are best kept just for a night and then released into the wild before feelings get too messy. 

HERO HAIR, the second novel of International Bestselling Author Rachel Robinson’s THE REAL SEAL SERIES, is the account of an life-altering journey detailing the awakening of two hollow hearts, both set on taking their own pleasures without any emotional attachment. The ruthless SEAL finally meets an enemy he can’t defeat, and both Macs and Teala find, against their wishes, and despite atrocious circumstances, a chemistry so explosive it leaves nothing but deconstructing love in its wake.

Review- Stay Awhile by Gia Riley

My rating is 6 out of 5 stars

Gia, I am literally a sobbing mess right now. What you did with this book was just off the charts incredible. I laughed. I cried. I fell completely and utterly in love with Garrett from square 1. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a man like him. He is in his own special class. No one can even come close to how he overtook my entire heart from the start.

So many twists. So many turns. So much heartache. So much utter despair. One man who can soothe a little girl more than her own father. He is no alpha, which makes this book so much different than most books. I know alphas are usually but we all want, but Garrett may have just  created a whole new breed of the perfect man.
My heart goes out to Megan and Laney for all the hurt they’ve had thrown their way over and over. One can only take so much before they break.Laney is one sweet precious angel that stole my heart. 

You think you know what’s going on and then the whole script is flipped, and I found myself grabbing my throat and gasping so many times. There’s no.other way to write this review than to describe the emotional journey you’re about to embark upon when you start at page 1. The ending just had me reading with my jaw dropped to the floor. I hope their will be a new story formed out of that ending and that’s all I’m saying.
This writing was impeccable. Easily a 6 star review. Definitely one of my top reads this year. You all are gonna want to jump on this one immediately. I promise you its worth every single second.

Life can change in the blink of an eye.

And every choice can unravel more of the truth.

One split second decision after a lifetime of lies, has created a world so confusing, happily ever after isn’t guaranteed. Not even when the stars align and the pieces fit perfectly into the puzzle.

This time, she’ll have to fight for love with a vice clamping her heart and a gaping hole swallowing her soul––absence won’t make the heart grow fonder.

Lies and deceit.

Broken promises and disappointment.

Megan Campbell knows them all too well.

So far, the pain has won. But the pain doesn’t have to be permanent.

Review – Devil You Know by L. A. Fiore

Devil You Know by L.A. Fiore

There are times when I pick up a book and read it, immerse myself in it and then get really, fricking annoyed with myself. Because after reading a book like this, I wonder why I’ve never met this author’s work before, why I’ve never drowned in her words before. I will forever read ANYTHING this author puts out going forward. This one book, Devil You Know has solidified my love for all things LA Fiore.

I’ve seen this book shared around lately, it caught my eye for sure but it wasn’t until a very trusted book friend raved about it that I decided I just HAD to pick it up. And now, I totally understand what she’s raving about because this book is PHENOMENAL. I honestly don’t think anything I write in a review will do the book justice. Just know that this book enveloped me, consumed me, broke me, healed me and above all else FUCKING OWNED ME! 

Devil You Know is laid out so perfectly, so flawlessly. Everything about it is just EPIC. From the delightful, swoony butterflies that root themselves deep inside to the raw, intense, heart pounding suspense, to the overwhelming love that sizzles underneath it all, I was DONE FOR. Hooked so hard, pulled in so deep that I couldn’t come up for air. I didn’t even want to.

Damien and Thea have an undeniable pull. A connection so deep, it was hard not to get wrapped up in them, with them. They were everything I wanted and NEEDED them to be. The angst and tension that oozes from this book and it’s characters was STRONG. BREATHTAKING. And I LOVED IT. 

Devil You Know will undoubtedly be up there in my TOP reads of 2017. Infact, it’s up in my TOP reads, period. I want to rebel and not give any star rating because IT DESERVES MORE than I could ever give! L.A. Fiore has a new fan FOR LIFE!

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length. 

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me. 

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Review – American Prince by Sierra Simone

American Prince cover

Review graphic

When I finished American Queen, the only word that I could use to describe how I felt was stunned. Utterly and completely stunned. And then I waited with anticipation to learn would come next. What would be the outcome… the next act in this tragic love triangle between a queen, her king and her prince.

As I finished American Prince at 3:07 this morning, the only thing that I felt as I read the last words of this emotionally riveting, brilliantly written epic was… devastated. I am absolutely devastated. Seeing this unconventional, socially unacceptable relationship through Vice President Embry Moore’s memories – his hopes, his pain. The lies, secrets and misdirections. The masks that he had to wear in public that fell and cracked so easily in the light of the truth behind closed doors and in the privacy of the Presidential residence. His all consuming love for Greer and Ash. His sacrifices for that love. Watching all that bleed into the present and feeling the impact of decisions that had to be made.

I am so gutted and so speechless. So speechless.

I was drawn in from the first word. Captivated and breathless. There were moments in this book that were so filled with angst and pain that I felt it all over. Embry is so troubled at times, so clear in others. He is wounded to his soul but is so completely enamored with Maxen Ashley Colchester that his whole world, his whole being is the President. Ash was his best friend, his commander, his truest love. His King. The same could be said of his love for Greer. She was his connection to Ash, the glue that bound them. Still she was more. She was a fire in his soul. She bought out his dominant alpha side that commanded her total obedience with her beauty and grace, but she also brought about his tender, nurturing nature. She was his light, his lover… his to protect at all costs. His queen.

Just as Embry is enthralled with Ash, I was enthralled with Embry. Completely. The white hot addictive chemistry between him and Ash curled my toes. The scenes between them are raw and sensual, but heartbreaking and soul shattering. His moments with Greer are just as powerful except he seems to hold the control in the dynamic even if in the end it is Max who holds the ultimate power over him and Greer. Embry needs these two the same way you need air to breathe and water to drink. Sadly though, he can see the bigger picture. Their future is something that Embry cannot control, but he knows his role in it. He wants nothing more than to belong to Max and cling to Greer. I have never felt such a connection to a character and hoped so much for his happiness only to know it’s not in the cards for him. And there’s nothing that can be done. In Embry’s painful words, “It’s better this way.”

What an incredible read! Angsty and heart gripping, this is an emotional roller ride spanning 14 years filled politics, war, denial and the most intense love I have ever experienced in a book. There’s no words for this. No way to explain how affected I was by this beautifully written epic tale. Amazing. Truly breathtaking. American King has much to live up to. Sierra, your talent is astounding. This is way more than six stars. It is one of the BEST of 2017!

Utterly fantastic! Let the anticipation begin.

Six Patroclus Stars!




I’ve been many things.

I’ve been a son and a stepbrother. An Army captain and a Vice President.

But only with Him am I a prince. His little prince.

Only with Maxen and Greer does my world make sense, only between them can I find peace from the demons that haunt me. But men like me aren’t made to be happy. We don’t deserve it. And I should have known a love as sharp as ours could cut both ways.

My name is Embry Moore and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States…for now.

This is the story of an American Prince.



In an instant, he was on me, straddling my thighs, one hand yanking my head back so I had to look up into his face.  “Don’t play games with me,” Ash warned in a low voice.  “Not tonight.  Not after what you did.  You don’t even want to know the things I’m thinking about right now.”

I could barely breathe.  Pain sang out from my shoulder and hunger sang out from my thickening cock.  I was at the mercy of a monster—in the hands of an angry god, as they say—and I’d never felt more alive.  It was like kissing his boot, like that first moment I’d been shot at in the trees—the whole world came to life, the forest thrumming and the leaves rustling and my blood and heart all part of this incredible symphony of magic and music that was playing all the time, if only I had the ears to listen.  Being with Ash was like my battle high, the fragility of life so apparent, the thrill of surviving it so exhilarating.  Surviving him.

“Take it,” I said, my fantasies from all those years ago coming back and making me stir underneath him.

“What?” he asked quietly.

“Take what you’re owed.  Take what you deserve for saving my life.”

His lips parted, his eyes hooded, and he pulled my head back even more, exposing my throat. “And what exactly do you owe me?” he asked.  “What exactly do I deserve?”

I met his eyes, which were almost black in the dark.  “Whatever you want.”

“What I want will have you flat on the ground with tears in your eyes.  You think you want to give that to me?”

“No.”  I swallowed.  “I want you to take it from me.”

He went still.

“Let me thank you,” I begged.  “Let me make you feel better.  Use me.  Use me how you need.”

“Oh, that’s what you want, is it?” he breathed.  He leaned in, his thighs on my throbbing erection, and I felt his own, an iron bulge pressing into my stomach.  It was massive.  He’d tear me apart with it.  “You won’t let me have you any other time, not with kisses or love letters, but when you’re bleeding and I’m furious, that’s when you’ll open yourself to me?  That’s when I get to have this?”

How could I make him understand?  That it had to be like this?  That I had to be conquered, not wooed?

Review – What I Need by J. Daniels

What I Need Cover

What I Need by J. Daniels

My rating: 6 of 5 stars


God. Is there anything hotter than the way he says that one word? All smooth, southern drawl and sweet to my ears.

Maybe it’s because I’m a Southern gal.

Maybe it’s because I love country music where Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line, and others sing to my Southern soul.

Maybe it’s because the word, darlin,’ does things to me like make turn into mush and is my favorite Southern term of endearment…my kryptonite.

Maybe it’s because of J. Daniel’s words catapult themselves into my heart and mind with a force I’m powerless to stop.

Maybe it’s all of these things.

Actually, there is no maybe because I have to scream, YES!!! YES to What I Need by J. Daniels, YES to this Southern story that made me feel my roots, YES to all of my love for CJ and Ry, YES to this romance that made my heart dance, and YES to all of J. Daniels achingly-addictive words!

When you sport a sappy GRIN nearly the whole time where you’re swimming so deep in the land of swoon, you know the story is a keeper. I conquered What I Need by J. Daniels with a BIG SAPPY SMILE on my face, swimming so deep in the land of swoon, swooning all the way to Cloud Nine. This story SPARKED TO LIFE, and oh did I feel every flame…every tremor…every word…EVERYTHING. CJ and Ry together were EVERYTHING. What I Need by J. Daniels was EVERYTHING!!!

What I Need held my heart soon after I turned the first page, and it never let go…I never let go. What I Need sparked to life as magic poured from the pages, melting every part of me. Oh that SPARK! What I Need had ALL OF THE SPARK…ALL OF HEART…ALL OF THE SOUL. All of MY heart. All of MY soul.

This story from the start was my addiction…my angst…my ache…my ALL! What I Need is a whole lot of sweet sprinkled with a little bit of sorrow and angst. What I Need quickly became what I needed because I NEEDED THESE WORDS…these intense, intoxicating, thrilling and tender words were ones I needed like air to breathe. Oh did I breathe this book, every breath was for What I Need, and every heart beat was for this book.

Beautiful, blonde, and blue-eyed Riley ‘Ry’ Tennyson is done with men.

Ry arrives at her brother’s wedding steamed and newly single, drowning her sorrows in tequila until the charming CJ Tully makes her an offer she can’t refuse…one hot, no-strings attached night. Oh YESSSSS!

CJ with his golden-kissed auburn hair, blue eyes, huge muscles (hello biceps!), and tall and inked body is sex on a stick…an Adonis.

The night may get complicated if this passionate-powered and soul-searing kiss is any indication.

It’s the hardest, deepest, most incredible kiss of my life, and I just want time to stop right now or the world to end so this is the last kiss I’ll ever feel.

This kiss was EVERYTHING!!! I felt it surge to my soul through the pages, the passion penetrating my heart. 

And if it’s possible to look inside another person’s soul, I swear CJ doesn’t just peer at mine. He stares and studies it like I mean something to him. Like this is important.

These words…they SANG TO MY SOUL, a sweet melody that MELTED ME. My heart was…IS…SO FULL. Butterflies danced inside me where I felt as if I were walking on air. At not even ten percent in, this story stole ever part of me. I was powerless to the passion…the intensity of the words that intoxicated me…overcame me…became me…ALL OF ME!!! What I Need had my heart…my soul…MY ALL!!! THIS BOOK BLED INTO ME EVERYWHERE…OWNING ME. 

“Tell me a secret, babe.”

“I like you.”

“I like you, too darlin’.”

BEAUTY IN WORDS, OH HOW THEE SLAY ME! Oh beautiful is this man from inside out, CJ grabbed my heart that he’s still holding. This amazing alpha MELTED ME from inside out! I LOVED CJ SOOO MUCH! He can utter ‘darlin’ all day to me and I would likely have a wordgasm or ten. Tully totaled me…RUINING ME! I’m his forever!!!

Darlin’…that word…so sweet…so sensual…so Southern is my KRYPTONITE!!! I’m SLAYED…my soul IS SLAYED!!! I don’t know how much harder I can SWOON, as these words touched me…blazed me…burned me…lighting every part of me with love and life. 

“Just remember, you wanted this. So when the Tully charm doesn’t wash off, I don’t’ want to hear s**t about it.”

That no-strings night? Not that easy. Sometimes strings have loose ends or knots, and you can’t help but get attached. Oh did I get attached to What I Need.

CJ had me at darlin,’ a Southern gal’s kryptonite, and I never stopped loving this hero with a huge heart and delicious mouth. That Tully charm is twisted around me and I’m not ready to let it go; I doubt if I’ll ever be ready to relinquish this soul-searing and swoon-filled story.

This is only the second book I’ve read by J. Daniels aside from the last story before this one, Hit the Spot, and I’m embarrassed to call my hoarding self out now but will do so. I bought the first Bama book in this series way back in June 2014, almost three years ago, and REGRET NOT READING IT RIGHT AWAY!!! J. Daniels, you can bless my heart for that…I deserve it…I do!!! I swear…mark my words…I will make this series my priority, despite an ARC avalanche, and read these books soon because I NEED MORE BAMA!!! I need to ride this Tully train again too, but the right way this time: from the beginning like I almost always do with a series…start to finish.

I’m still lost in J. Daniel’s wondrous words, my head and heart still stuck in this story, my soul still swooning. I want more…need more…ache for more. I knew from the start that this story was SIX STARS because of my steady smiling and swooning. How could it be less when it made me this happy?!?

What I Need was my sweet…my smolder…my swoon…my soul…MY KRYPTONITE! This story has THE CLICK, that perfect match where everything feels SO RIGHT. The chemistry-clad characters with all the charisma, the sweetness, the swoon, the angst, the Southern setting, the endearing Southern words…I WAS UTTERLY ENTHRALLED WITH IT ALL! What I Need has all of the elements of a romance match made in heaven! This story is sooo SPECIAL, one I still feel deep in my soul.

Sweet, sexy, and swoon-filled sprinkled with angst, this story is HEART HEAVEN. What I Need is what just what I needed. I’m still basking on Cloud Nine, on board that Tully train, hearing ‘darlin’ in that Southern drawl, humming Sweet Home Alabama, and there is no sweeter or better place right now to be: a Bama girl for life.


Just darlin’. That’s it. And I realize that is all I wanted and needed him to say.

6 darlin’ hearts (because CJ)

From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.

Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.

At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.

Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.

Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.

Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?

Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.

Not with him sleeping down the hall…

Review – Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters

Throne of Truth Cover

Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

If two people are meant to be together, they will always find their way back.

Have you began and ended a story in tears? The first, last, and so much of the middle of the book render you a wreck, where the tissues are a lifeline, controlling those feels that flow like a river. Emotions are entangled so deeply where you feel EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

I began and ended Throne of Truth in tears, my emotions on edge, entangled and engulfed in this story, where I felt every EVERYTHING. Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters hit my heart hard and sank itself into my soul. ALL THE FEELS flowed fast and furiously, where I was immediately bound to this devastatingly beautiful book, where I would likely remain.

I dove into Throne of Truth, barely surfacing for air. This book was the drug and I was the addict. I shut out the world while Throne of Truth became my world. Dark bled with light. Wrong bled with right. Throne of Truth BECAME ME. This story swiftly was my air…my ache…my anguish…my addiction…my ALL. I was quickly lost in Throne of Truth and did not want to be found…EVER. I already knew that this story was MY EVERYTHING.

Beautiful blonde and blue-eyed Noelle ‘Elle’ Charlston has lived a fairy tale of a life with a caring father, powerful position as a young and wealthy CEO of her family’s retail company, and everything she’s ever wanted. She thought she found love but realized it was a lie. Now she doesn’t know who to trust. Who she though was a friend is now a foe. Now Elle must simply survive.

She gave me life, and she took my life.

Penn Everet is tall, dark, muscular, and handsome. Hero and villain. Angel and monster. Saint and sinner. Penn is a man of many layers and lies, but underneath the layers is a heart is gold, and oh did he hold onto my heart.

The truth shall set you free. Elle wants the truth and Penn is sick of the lies. Penn must reveal himself, as he has been a man of mystery, to Elle or she will flee forever. 

“How can I tell you? How can I make you see what you don’t want to see?”

THIS DARK HERO WAS MY DRUG…and I could not drink the dominant and delicious Penn enough. 

I was no longer a girl masquerading as a woman. I was all woman.

Elle was a girl in Crown of Lies but she’s a woman…a warrior…in Throne of Truth. She must protect those she loves along with herself. Like a butterfly, Elle has sprouted wings and is soaring high. So bold and brave, this confident and controlled woman is PURE POWER, and oh did I love this metamorphosis…this grown-up Elle. 

Her passion and affection electrocuted my heart. She gave me the power to keep fighting.

Fight is what Elle must do…fight for her freedom…fight for Penn’s…just FIGHT like the warrior woman she’s become.

Penn and Elle are PURE PERFECTION together. The fusion of hot and cold perfectly blend into magic that melts like molten lava. You can’t help but feel their chemistry-clad connection, two powerful people powerless around each other perhaps brought together by fate.

He exploded as if he’d ultimately die if he didn’t have me that very moment. We kissed until we were breathless.

Penn and Elle’s kisses are molten lava that melted me from head to toe. Their chemistry is combustible, but their connection is EVERYTHING!!! This is not just lust but so much more! I felt their passion through the pages. 

“It was you, Elle. I fell for you the second I met you.”

This saint and sinner made me SWOON, as I floated on Cloud Nine. This is a new side of Penn, one where is heart is no longer frozen but free.

Crown of Lies was the dinner, but Throne of Truth is the dessert. Crown of Lies was Penn’s show, but Elle owned the hell out of Throne of Truth. Elle went from meek princess to fierce queen, a queen who still wants Penn…her king. This is a tooth and nails fight for love! 

“I’m giving you a way out, Elle. Say the word, and I’ll let you go. It will f**king kill me. You’ll rip my heart out…Leave me, Elle. Don’t let me get away with stealing yet more of you.”

Penn’s past erupts, exploding around him like fireworks. To protect Elle, he must set her free. 

My heart cracked open, dying, gasping.

“Why are you doing this?”

“Because for the first time in my life, I need to do the right thing.”

Throne of Truth revealed itself, baring its soul to me, while stealing mine. This story stole my soul like a thief in the night, and all I could was submit to its power….its passion…its promise of more. INTENSE and INTOXICATING, I was indebted to every word…every page…every emotion that escaped, entangling around every part of me.

I felt every word I read in this pulse-pounding UNPUTDOWNABLE soul-searing story. I FELT EVERYTHING!!! This story struck my emotions like a match, setting them on fire where every feel was a burn. Throne of Truth took my tears, tears permanently etched in my eyes while reading. Throne of Truth nearly brought me to my knees where I WEPT from words that penetrated me with passion and power…heartbreak and hope.

Throne of Truth is deliciously dark, passionately poignant, and breathtakingly beautiful. Throne of Truth STOLE MY BREATH in a book that bled beauty and angst. I was ENRAPTURED by heart-wrenching and heartwarming tale.

I LOVED THIS STORY SOOOO HARD! Pepper Winters outdid herself again as I…gasp…loved Throne of Truth even more than Crown of Lies! Throne of Truth is easily one of my top February reads and 2017 best books too!

This book held my heart in its hands, where my heart bled and beat with every word. I’m still bleeding from Throne of Truth, a book that BROKE ME IN THE BEST WAY!!! Throne of Truth BLEW ME AWAY!!!

Throne of Truth is over but I am still basking in UTTER BOOK BLISS!!! My soul is sliced open and my heart is racing where I still feel Throne of Truth thrashing through me. My body, heart, and soul are still on fire…feels in flames…as this tale of truth has imprinted itself on me…perhaps forever.

Romance. It wasn’t paint-by-numbers or color within the lines. It was messy and scribbly and up to us to draw it how we wanted.

★★★★★★ ‘but worth 10’ gut-gripping gold crowns


View all my reviews


Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

For me to walk out the door.

For it all to be over.
