Review – He Loves Me Knot by RC Boldt 

6 out of 5 stars 

Pardon me while I enjoy one of the best book hangovers I’ve ever had! I’ve been a fan of RC since the first book I’ve reviewed for her. I’ve loved every book immensely,  but this book…. It’s on a whole nother level. I wanted to lay down and go to sleep because the migraine I had prior to starting kept getting worse from the brightness of the kindle. There was just one problem. I COULDN’T PART WITH THIS STORY!!!  There wasn’t a chance in hell that I was going to put this book down. I was in a trance from the very beginning and there was just no stopping. 
Second chance romances are my favorite trope ever. I have to say that RC completely perfected this one. It was balanced with that humor I’ve come to love from her but it wasn’t the main focus of this story. This story was nothing but a long emotional journey of two souls who didn’t get it right the first time,  but fate would see to it that they were brought together to mend each other’s hearts. 
I absolutely fell in love with Beckett too and am so glad that he will be getting a book. I know that I am going to get to see that big,  goofy,  lovable man get his HEA. And also know we will get to see more of Knox and Emma Jane. This has to be added to your TBR. It was definitely a top read this year. This book will have a space in my heart forever.

 Sometimes love needs a second chance…

I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.

Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.

Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?

He loves me…KNOT.

If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.

Review – Misadventures On The Night Shift by Lauren Rowe 

6 out of 5 stars 

 Lauren Rowe hits yet another home run in a book filled with humor, wit, emotion, and 100% sexy.  This book will draw you in with it’s heat and witty banter but then keep you mesmerized as it gets a lot deeper emotionally.  
I really don’t want to give a detailed review of the plot because it’s an adventure in and of itself. The last half of the book had me on edge and almost in tears (I won’t say good or bad. Sorry not sorry).  My heart was pounding and I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it all would end. An absolute must read!


Lauren Rowe



Hotel clerk Abby Medford has always enjoyed the quiet solitude of the night shift. The long, boring hours allow her time to study her law books. But when bad-boy-rocker Lucas Ford checks into the penthouse suite one night and demands Abby personally deliver his room service request, her formerly quiet nights are quickly filled with Lucas’s erotic games.

But as Abby soon learns, if she thinks she can indulge her innermost desires with Lucas without giving him her heart, she’s dead wrong.

Review – Most Eligible Bastard by Annika Martin 

6 out of 5 stars

 6 stars 
Where do I even start?  Talk about a book hangover. This book had me drawn in, hook, line, and sinker. It was like a moth to a flame or an addict to his drug. I just couldn’t stop reading. It had the perfect blend of angst, heat,  and humor mixed with tons of vulnerability.  By far,  my favorite book by this author. 
Vicky is not what she seems. She is scarred from a past that has her hiding from the rich jerks who wronged her publicly worldwide!  She has a serious problem with anyone that has money and refuses to be pushed around. She has a backbone that I admired and absolutely loved how she used the dog to evoke humor into the story. She definitely showed her sassy side,  and I loved every minute of it. She didn’t ask to be the leading board member of a billion dollar corporation, but she refuses to be pushed around by rich people once again. She makes them sweat and damn if I don’t love that fire she shows. 
Henry is absolutely appalled that his mother would leave the family company in the hands of a con artist dog whisperer. He threatens  her  with things that would make lesser people crumble, but he has no idea who Vicky really is and that he basically just threw down a gauntlet by threatening her. He and his cousin decide good cop bad cop will be the way to take her down. The plan backfires right in his face though when he finds our the real story. And damn if he doesn’t fit the title of this book perfectly! 
I’m gonna kill to say this is one of my favorite reads this year. It just had an alluring quality that the author absolutely perfected! 

 Title: Most Eligible Bastard

Author: Annika Martin

Genre: Romantic Comedy  

Most Eligible Bastard, an all-new standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Annika Martin is LIVE!

He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.


I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.

Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.

Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…

He’s arrogant and infuriating.

He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.

He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.

Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I’m so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.

No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.

His wicked…devastating…impossible-to-resist smile.

Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

 She glares at me now. “I can’t believe you tried to strip poor Smuckers of his vote. Do you have no decency?”

“When it comes to protecting this company?” I say. “No.”

Her gaze intensifies. “Just no?”

“None at all,” I say. “No decency whatsoever. Nada, if you will.”

Her pretty lips part. It’s shock. Maybe a little bit awe.

I give her an amused smile, adjusting my jacket sleeve over my cuff just so. The suit was tailored by a man who charges three hundred bucks an hour and is worth every penny.

“Uh,” she says. “You think you’re all that? You’re not.”

“Oh, I am all that,” I say. “I very much am. And for the record, I will crush you in the end.”

“Smuckers had this medication once,” she says. “We tried to hide it in his food, and he spit it out. No matter what we did, he’d spit it out.” She puts one finger on the paper with the new amendment and slides it back across the desk. “Smuckers doesn’t like when people try to fool him. That’s his message for you.”

“I have a message for Smuckers.” I put my finger on it and slide it back across to her. “Smuckers needs to know that we have a private investigator on this case. Smuckers might not have very nice food to eat if you ended up in prison.”

Finally she looks scared.

Brett swoops in. “I say we settle this. One-time offer from me personally.” He writes the number—$4,500,000.00. “This offer expires in two minutes.”

My heart pounds. She needs to take offer. We’ve shown how close she can come to losing everything.

She looks at the paper.

She’s all alone caring for that sister of hers. She’s poor—we have her banking information; we know it for a fact. She has every reason in the world to take it. Yet she hesitates.

“This is our last offer,” Brett says. “After this, we’ll take the company from you, and you’ll get nothing.”

She raises her brown eyes to me. It’s me she’s really dealing with. I like that she knows that.

“You know what Smuckers hates even more than being fooled?” she says.

My heart pounds. She almost lost everything to me, and now she’s going to tell me a dog story?

“He hates being threatened,” she says. “And bullied. He really, really hates it.”

“Well he’s going to have to get used to it,” I hear myself saying. “He’s used to bubbles and bows and sunny parks but he’s in the jungle now. There are animals who are faster and stronger and smarter than he is. Animals who will dominate him easily—savagely, even.”

“Then you don’t know Smuckers very well.”

“Oh, I know all about Smuckers, and I’d suggest he practice rolling over. Baring his belly for the superior predator.” I lower my voice. “Begging sweetly for mercy.”

The color heightens in her face. This shouldn’t be fun.

But oh, it is.

I keep going. “Smuckers may think he can request packets and bylaws and get up to speed, but he can’t compete here. He doesn’t have the skills.”

“Smuckers thinks owning fifty-one percent is the best skill to have,” she says.

Review – Scandalous by LJ Shen

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Forget the top read of the year.
Forget the top read of the month.

Scandalous by LJ Shen is the TOP READ of my LIFE. 

I have never read a book like this before. I have never been so addicted to a book before, while it engraved itself in my BLOOD. Scandalous swam through me, pulsed through the deepest parts of me and sent me to a WHOLE other world. 

THIS is how a book should be written.

THIS is how a book should be delivered. 

THIS is how a book should make you feel. 

THIS is how it’s fucking DONE! 

The Sinners of Saint series is without doubt one of the best series out there. LJ has a way with words that just attack the mind, body and soul. She’s also the BEST at writing really hot, alpha males that we shouldn’t really like very much, aka Hotholes. In Scandalous though, for me, she wrote one of her most formidable HotHoles yet, with her BEST writing to date.

I felt WAYYYY too much reading this book, so much so, that it’s impossible to put WHAT I actually felt into proper words that make sense, but I’m gonna try. It made me CRAZY. ADDICTED. OBSESSED. As words coursed through my veins, emotion clogged my throat, and angst, angst ripped apart my heart and demolished my soul. Cover to cover my whole body was TINGLING. My stomach was TIGHT and yet, somehow, FLUTTERING, uncontrollably. My heart, SCREAMING, ACHING, POUNDING. OWNED. 

Scandalous, is raw, gritty, fierce and chock full of filthy, forbidden lust, hottttt, intense passion and need. #thatfirstkisstho! Trent and Edie are ugly and raw and filthy, yet somehow utterly irresistible. (Yes I borrowed a line, it makes so much sense). Their connection is OFF THE CHAIN. They are an explosion, their push and pull, dangerous but all consuming! I fell for them both, together and as individuals. They rocked my world.

There isn’t really anything more I can say at this point bar, read it! If you’re looking for a book that will hook you, grip your heart and soul, steal your breath, while it sets you on fire, then this is your book. If you’re looking for a book written stunningly with seamless perfection, and so much creativeness, this is your book. If you’re looking to be owned and all together consumed by the best book EVER, then this, THIS RIGHT HERE, is your book! There will never be enough stars to ever do this book justice. They simply don’t accommodate for books as breathtaking and as brilliant as this. It’s most definitely, one of a kind!

They call him The Mute for a reason.

Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.

When he does, it’s with disdain.

When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.

When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.

He is thirty-three.

I am eighteen.

He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.

I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.

He’s emotionally unavailable.

And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.

Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.

And yet, I can’t stay away.

A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.

And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.



Review  – No Filter by Nora Phoenix 

6 out of 5 stars

 To say  that I loved this book is an understatement. You do have to be open-minded while reading because of relationship dynamics that are unconventional, but there is absolutely no cheating involved. Plain and simple this is a love story filled with heartache, past pain and regrets, and 3 strong but broken men. Their story just completely sucked me in and left me hanging on every word. I turned pages so fast that I thought I’d break the kindle. 
I had no idea this was a debut novel for this author. She definitely showed her strength in writing this absolutely beautiful book. I will be counting down the clock for book 2.

 No Filter

No Shame Series Book 1

Nora Phoenix

M/M Romance

October 26, 2017

Cover Design: Sloan Johnson/Sloan J Design


Indy will do anything to prevent his mobster ex from finding him. Their last encounter left Indy recovering for months in the hospital, and ever since he’s become an expert at hiding in plain sight. Determined to stay under the radar, he takes on a new identity and moves from place to place. His life has no room for friendships, let alone love, so he keeps his heart firmly closed. After all, he has nothing to offer but a damaged body and a broken soul. Plus, he’s so done with men. Until he meets the man who breaks through all his defenses.

Former Army Medic Noah came back damaged from his last tour—in more than one way. Between supporting his best friend who’s struggling with PTSD, dealing with his own issues, and the stress of his job as a physician assistant, rebuilding his life seems impossible. There’s little time for what Noah needs, let alone for what he wants. When he meets Indy, Noah discovers what he wants more than anything: for Indy to stay.

Indy never expected the strong, confident Noah to be as damaged and broken as himself. But what will happen if he starts letting Noah in? Indy knows he should run to protect himself and Noah.

Noah needs Indy to stay more than anything. But will what little he has to offer be enough to make Indy trust him and stay?

No Filter is a steamy M/M romance that ends with a HFN, but with the promise of a HEA. It’s the first book in the No Shame Series, and is not a stand-alone novel. It contains hot sex, a hint of a ménage, lots of talk about hot sex, flashbacks of said hot sex, and…Oh well, you get the idea. Also: trigger warning for mentions of sexual abuse.

 Dressed in a T-shirt and flannel PJ bottoms, Indy made his way downstairs. Autumn had started, setting the trees in the yard on fire in an explosion of red, orange, and yellow, and bringing cold nights, but downstairs it was comfortably warm. Noah was reading the paper in his usual spot, but Josh was nowhere to be seen.

“Morning,” Indy said, always a bit shy at first when it was only him and Noah.

“Hey. How are you feeling?” Noah never failed to ask Indy this, and it wasn’t a polite question.

“Good. Haven’t my felt my ribs in two days, so I’m officially pain free.”

Indy grabbed a bowl from the cabinet.

“Perfect. We’ll cut off your cast today. I didn’t think you’d want to do an official hospital visit for that, right?”

Indy shook his head, carefully cutting a banana on a cutting board with one hand and putting it in the bowl. He took yogurt from the fridge. “Not if I can avoid it.”

“Well, you’re lucky you have a highly skilled medical professional at your disposal, who’s willing to do a house visit.”

Indy grinned as he sprinkled crunchy granola on top of his yogurt. “Don’t know about the highly skilled part, but at least he’s free.”

“That hurt.” A smile tugged at the corners of Noah’s mouth. “My price just went up.”

“Double times nothing is still nothing, you do realize that?” Indy took a bite of his breakfast. He loved these verbal matches with Noah almost as much as not having to worry about what to eat for breakfast every day.

“Who says it was free to begin with? I only offered my skilled services, never said they were free.”

“So what’s your price?” Indy asked, expecting Noah to launch another joke.

“I want you for the entire day,” Noah said.

Indy frowned, quickly chewing to empty his mouth. “What do you mean?”

Noah reached out and circled Indy’s good wrist with his right hand, gently pulled until Indy was standing between his legs. “It’s my day off, and Josh has some special therapy session, so he’s gone all day. I want to spend the entire day with you, and you have to do exactly what I tell you.”



 When she was a little tot, Nora’s mom got a library subscription for her. That, as they say, was that, and a lifelong love for books was born. Nora never stopped reading and doesn’t exaggerate when she says she devours books, rather than plain reads them. She started writing stories as soon as she could hold a pen, and wrote her first full book as a teen (on a typewriter!). It took her waaaay too long to follow her dream to become a romance author.

Nora writes M/M romance, because hello, sexy boys, and likes her men flawed, strong, and a tad broken. She appreciates a little kink, but insists on a happy ever after.

Review – The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn


The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

”The harder you love, the harder you fall.”

Sometimes you don’t have to read but a few lines or pages of a story to fall hard in love. When you end the first and last chapters of a tale in tears, tears that remain etched in your eyes the whole time reading, you know you’ve met your emotional match. Meghan Quinn’s The Other Brother was MY EMOTIONAL MATCH. Edge to edge. Feel to feel.

I have a WEAKNESS for second-chance love stories and I didn’t have to read but a few minutes for The Other Brother to OWN ME!!! Heart. Soul. Mind. All taken by this thief of a story. The Other Brother, this second-chance romance full of fire and feels, was my soulmate. My kryptonite. So perfect. SO PERFECT FOR ME.

From the minute I was reunited with Aaron, AKA ‘Smalls,’ in The Other Brother, he HAD ME…ALL OF ME. This gorgeous man, so beautiful and broken, broke me while holding my heart in his hands. Aaron is the perfect man—gorgeous, witty, sweet, brooding, broken, sexy, strong, and so caring. What I love the most about this hero is his vulnerability. I fell so HARD for this amazing alpha whose heart is as beautiful as the man himself.

Sometimes couples need to grow separately before they come back together. 

She was my rock, the one solid feature in my life. She was also my downfall.

Amelia is beautiful, sassy, and smart. When she returns to her hometown, she never expected to collide with her first love, Aaron. Aaron broke her heart once and she finally put the pieces together.

”I’ve chosen to forget about it . . . forget about you.”

These words CRUSHED ME, bursting hope like a popped balloon, as I hoped these soulmates would reconnect.

Can she feel how fast my heart is beating? Can she tell how much she still owns me?

I SHATTERED, breaking from these heartbreaking words. Words that pierced my heart. Words that shot straight to my soul. Words that meant so much. Aaron TOOK MY TEARS and STOLE MY HEART!!! I felt his heartbreak, emphasized with his struggles, and knew this man was everything!!!

I never got over him. I don’t think I ever will.

Sometimes love wasn’t sure to sustain the first time. Sometimes love needs a second chance as it wasn’t ready the first time. 

”I feel this pull between us. It’s real.”

I felt this pull too, this hero and heroines’ IMPENETRABLE CONNECTION, so caring and combustible. The passion penetrates between Amelia and Aaron, as their love is still raw and real. A love that never died. 

”You’re so confident,” I state, trying to calm my racing heart.

“I am. For once in my life, I’m sure of one thing. You’re mine.”

Oh Aaron! This is a hero who life constantly knocks down but keeps persevering, never giving up and I greatly admired his perseverance. Aaron has a beautiful soul, one as stunning as he is inside and out. If only Aaron would see his value, the light through the dark, the light that is Amelia, his shining star who has guided him for a lifetime.

”I’m not very good at seeing my worth.”

“I see the worth in you.”

I LOVED Amelia and Aaron together, and LOVED their story soooo hard! This couple felt REAL and their story is RELATABLE, as if their story could really happen, and that makes The Other Brother even more special. This tale of first love, the kind from soulmates, the one you root for to last forever, had me rooting for this couple to last a lifetime.


Megan Quinn has, hands-down, written her BEST BOOK YET: The Other Brother !!! This is one of my FAVORITE SECOND-CHANCE ROMANCES EVER!!! The Other Brother’s writing is PHENOMENAL: a magnetic mix of swoon and sorrow infused with hits of humor in a second-chance story woven in love. HEARTFELT MAGIC!!! I’m sorry Racer and Tucker, but Smalls delivered the biggest!!! With a broken hero with a beautiful soul and the strong and stunning woman who heals him, this story is a storm that strikes the soul!!! The hero and heroine were carved for each other like this soul-slaying second-chance romance was for me.

The Other Brother, this love story with all the heart that stole my heart, is EVERYTHING!!! This tale of broken love TOUCHED ME SO HARD!!! Words…mere WORDS…rendered me so full of FEELS where I still felt and am feeling everything long after the story has stopped. There are not enough words and not enough stars to capture my love for this emotionally-woven, second-chance romance…MY KRYPTONITE. The Other Brother is HEART-POUNDING PERFECTION!!!

A TOP 2017 read!!! 

💋💋💋💋💋💋 all of the first-love kisses

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?



Right on time, I’m impressed.

She doesn’t get out of her car right away, so I give her a second but then realize maybe she’s not exiting the vehicle because I have the key to the house and she has nowhere to go.

Wanting to make a good impression and seem approachable since I’m the property manager, I run my hand through my hair and adjust my jeans. I’m not wearing any fancy shit, but at least I don’t have holes in or paint stains on my clothes. I hop off my front porch and make my way toward her car, slowly, not wanting to scare her.

There is muffling coming from her car, voices I can’t quite hear, but I get the idea she’s finishing up a conversation, so I slow my pace drastically. That’s when I see her tilt her head down and look at me. From the reflection of the light off her windows, I can’t make out her features. I can only see a silhouette.

I lift a friendly hand in her direction to let her know I come in peace and make my way to her driveway. There is no wave back, but I do hear the telltale sound of her opening her car door. She steps out and when I round the vehicle, I catch the sun off her driver’s side window, temporarily blinding me.

Blinking my eyes a few times to calm my retinas, I bring her into focus.

“Aaron . . .”

Every hair on my body sticks straight up and my body goes still from that voice, that unmistakably sultry voice.

When she finally comes into view, I am met with a pair of hazel eyes I haven’t been able to get out of my head since the day she left town for bigger and better things.

“Amelia.” I clear my throat and take a step forward. “Wow, I uh . . .” Tongue-tied, that’s exactly what I am right now. “Didn’t expect to see you get out of that car.” I laugh nervously while I pull on the back of my neck, trying to comprehend what’s going on. I point with my thumb toward the house and ask, “You’re the new tenant?”

She nods and looks me over, taking her time with her perusal, her eyes burning a hole right through my clothes like they used to. When her eyes meet mine again, she asks, “You’re the property manager?”

I nod and swallow hard. “And neighbor.”

She presses her lips together, thinning them out. “What are the chances?” She laughs nervously.

“Yeah, especially since I thought your life was in the city.” I didn’t mean for that to come out rude, but it did. Gentling my voice, I ask, “What brings you back home?”

Staring at the ground, clutching her purse to her side, she says, “My dad. He’s, uh, not doing well.” Duh, Mrs. Ferguson mentioned something like that. I’m so damn overwhelmed and shocked right now though, that entire conversation I had with Mrs. Ferguson is not registering in my mind.

“Oh no.” My brow pinches together in concern. “What happened?”

She waves me off. “Nothing you need to worry about.” And just like that she shuts me down. Honestly, I’m surprised she said that much to me after how we ended things between us.

Yes, there was an us, a perfectly beautiful, love-filled us. Amelia Santos was the best thing to ever happen to me, and yet, she was also the worst. During a time where my heart broke from every uncaring glance from my mom, Amelia resurrected me from the ashes I would have otherwise drowned in. She was my rock, the one solid feature in my life.

She was also my downfall.

She was going places, and I wasn’t. She had opportunity, and I had none. She wanted me to move with her, and I couldn’t, but no way in hell would I hold her back. I barely made it out of my mom’s house. There were many days when I tried hard to earn a buck so I could find a place to live other than the homeless shelter where I spent many lonely nights. Amelia deserved better than that, so I pushed her away to achieve her dreams. Little did I know, breaking up with her would send me in the biggest downward spiral of my life. The only reason I’m the man I am today is because after hitting rock bottom, I knew things needed to change, and it was up to me to make something of myself. So I worked my ass off. And now at thirty, I can say proudly that I’m a co-owner of an up-and-coming construction company as well as the proud owner of a house in the heart of Hillcrest, a beautiful two-story house. I’m doing well for myself . . . at least that’s what I thought until Amelia stepped out of her car.

Now I’m questioning every little thing about my life leading to this point.

Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.

 Cora had such an easy way with Ben. With both of his kids, really. God, Slider admired that about her. Especially when nothing about him was easy, and hadn’t been in years.

Ben yawned and peered up at Slider. “You’re gonna stay with me, aren’t you? “

“You better believe it, Benji. And remember what we talked about. Nurses are going to come in a couple of times throughout the night. Just to check on you. I’ll be here the whole time,” Slider said, leaning over the boy so he could look him in the eyes. There was nothing like the unconditional love and admiration of a kid. But that didn’t mean Slider shouldn’t have to earn it. And he hadn’t done nearly enough these past few years, had he? He pressed a kiss to his son’s cheek. “Now shut those peepers.”

Ben giggled. “Your whiskers tickle Dad.” Slider ran his hand over the facial hair on his jaw. One more piece of evidence of the mess he’d become. But at least it made Ben laugh. The boy looked up at Cora next, his hand snaking into hers and tugging her closer. “You’re staying too, right?”

“Wild horses couldn’t tear me away,” she said, squeezing his hand.

Ben made a face. “There are wild horses here?”

Cora chuckled and Slider shook his head. “Peepers. Closed. Now,” he said.

The boy was asleep in an instant.

After not sleeping much today himself, Slider probably wasn’t far behind him. Still, he nodded at the small sleeper sofa and quietly said to Cora, “You can take that. Nurse said there are pillows and blankets in the closet.”

She shook her head. “No way. You haven’t slept. And I’m kinda attached here,” she said, glancing at where Ben still clutched her hand. “Seriously, Slider. Get some sleep while you can.”

Frowning, he pulled out the sleeper, which was only a little wider than a twin-sided bed, found the bedding, and lowered the lights. “How ‘bout this. We’ll take shifts.”

She smiled. “Sure.”

On a bone-deep sigh, Slider sat on the bed’s edge and kicked off his boots, and then he went horizontal still wearing his jeans and T-shirt. Cora laid her cheek against her arm, her face turned away from Slider toward Ben, her blond waves a soft cascade against the white hospital blankets.

And damnit all to hell, but it played with uncomfortable things inside his chest to see her like that. Things he didn’t want played with. Not ever again.

So he closed his eyes. And woke up two and a half hours later when the nurse came into the room to check Ben’s vitals. The kid hardly stirred, but Cora was still awake and making small talk with the woman about how her night was going.

“Your turn to get some sleep,” Slider said when they were alone again.

“Don’t worry about it. Go back to sleep.”

“We had a deal,” he said, his voice like gravel. Years of exhaustion did that to a man.

“Later,” she said, her expression soft with sleepiness. He forced himself into a sitting position, his stiff movements making him feel ancient. “You need it more than I do.”

He shook his head and pushed to his feet. “I’m not hogging the bed all night while you sit up in that hard chair.”

“Don’t be stubborn,” she said. “Sleep.”

He arched a brow. As much as he wanted to lie back down, he wasn’t doing it at her expense. “It’s your turn.”



She sighed. “I’m trying to take care of you, too.”

Review – American King by Sierra Simone

American King AMAZON

Review graphic

There are no words that will ever fully satisfy me to use to describe this book. No, this entire series.

Nothing can describe the pain of loss and separation, the angst and misery of acceptance for circumstances beyond the King’s control, the elation of three people who are simply destined to be together and love each other beyond the conventions of society and its ideals of what love is and how marriage should look.

Nothing prepared me for the overwhelming push of emotion, the tears that came from some of the most beautiful words I have ever been privileged to read. Are there words to convey the sensuality and sexual pull between two of the strongest men and the drive they have between them to push each other to have more, to be more and to accept nothing less than everything? Mind, heart, body and soul. All or nothing. How do I describe Greer Galloway in this final book of the series – her supreme grace under tremendous pressure, her love for her King and her Prince, her fireball of naughtiness. And a back bone. She was regal, every bit the queen that Ash and Embry called her.

I loved these three incredible people so much. Just so very much.

The respect that I felt for President Maxen Ashley Colchester because he was true to himself, his feelings, and his convictions. He didn’t care about societal norms and the fact that he loved two people. He loved his country. He simply wanted peace for his people and in his own home. Ash was power, prowess and dominance. He elevated the room with his presence and he brought a queen and a prince to their knees with his love. The decisions that he had to face are not ones that should be wished upon anyone, but he commanded with brilliance, working behind the scenes to do what was best, not looking for any praise or a pat on the head. This role was Ash’s destiny.

I could say so much more about this series. I could talk volumes about the connection to Arthurian legend, the amazing secondary cast that is vital to this trilogy, or the politics of the story and how those politics mirror what is going on in our world even as I write this. I will simply say this. This series – and definitely American King – is not just the retelling of a legendary tale with a modern twist. It isn’t just a story full of some of the very best sex scenes ever written. It isn’t just some regular love story. This was an experience, one that must be fully embraced, devoured and held close to your heart. It was thought provoking, heartbreaking, absolutely astonishing. It was sinful, decadent and breathtaking. The New Camelot series is without fail the very best series that I have had the joy to read.

Bravo, Sierra.

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth.  And here I am.  My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal.  And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return.  I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Review – Cuffed by K. Bromberg


Cuffed by K. Bromberg

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

We forget the memories and just chase the moments.

When you read a story and you can feel the author’s heart in her words…well…it’s the best feeling in the world! K. Bromberg can make you FEEL ALL THE THINGS! I FELT K. Bromberg in CUFFED, her latest romance entailing a hot cop hero with a huge heart and the woman he forever saves.

I fell in love with Cuffed from the Synopsis alone. I had not even sunk myself into the story but I KNEW it would be a heart-thrashing hit. Then the Prologue both melted and shattered my heart, and I was a GONER!!! After the Prologue, I realized: Cuffed is not simply a hot cop story with a little heart; it is a heartfelt and heart-wrenching tale with ALL THE HEART!!! My emotions took wind of their own and flew where I lost control, control of which I would have willingly surrendered.


Through her emotionally-woven stories like Cuffed, K. Bromberg drags readers through the dark and then shines the light, so PROMISING and POWERFUL.She portrays the good that grows from bad that triumphs over evil. It’s the strength in spades from this compelling author’s characters who survive severe storms, breaking free from the pain of the past to finally stay in the sunshine, which RESONATES long after the last page. With heroes and heroines who are as bold as they are beautiful, K. Bromberg’s characters in Cuffed and her other work are like her words: as MESMERIZING as they are MEANINGFUL.

Beautiful and broken, Emerson has been knocked down in life, her spirit and soul shattered. Her heart is practically encased in armor, protecting it…protecting her. Emerson has lost trust in the world, one that has constantly let her down. Oh did I want to hug this heroine whose heartbreak became mine, a heroine I quickly adored!

Emerson’s wings are broken until one hero swoops in from her childhood…

”I don’t need a hero.”

Hero Teaser

A persistent hero who helps her fly.


Officer Grant Malone is one HOT cop with a huge heart! He is fierce, flirty, and oh-so-sexy! Grant is a hero in every way who does the right thing, even if it risks his life and puts his job on the line.

This collision of past with present, dark with light, and a whole lot of fate was INEVITABLE. 

”So sure of yourself, are you?”

“You’ve never been able to say no to me, Emerson.”

The banter BURNED me!!! Grant and Emerson possess the perfect of amount of passion and playfulness that had me HOOKED on them! Just MAGICAL together!!! This story SPARKS to life!!! 

”You make me feel when I don’t want to feel.”

Young beautiful pair of lovers hug and kiss

Grant, this hot cop and heartfelt hero, POSSESSED ME!!! Grant helps Emerson mend her wings that were destroyed, and I LOVED how he helps Emerson save herself. I LOVED everything about this alpha with all the heart! I was SMITTEN with Emerson, so beautiful and brave, with strength in spades. I LOVED this heroine as much as the hero! 

”You always say I’m the hero, but you’re the one who saved me.”

Cuffed is not simply a hot cop romance; it’s so MUCH MORE!!! This SOUL-SHATTERING story shows that beauty can bleed from the ugly. It’s a tale that tackles tough issues—so thought-provoking—that forever remain. It’s a story about hope after heartbreak and happiness after hope. It’s a story of STRENGTH and SURVIVAL, one that stomps on your heart and steals your smiles along with your breath. Cuffed is about taking that leap of faith…living for the moment…living life now.

”You have to be all in or get all out. There is no halfway when it comes to love.”

Cuffed lightens with banter while bringing battles to life—conquering demons deeply within—in one HEAVY and HEARTFELT story. Sexy yet sweet. Dark yet light. Turbulent yet tender. Broken yet beautiful. Cuffed is a fusion of fire and ice, a riveting romance that hits and holds the heart until the end. Oh was my heart hit!!! My soul shattered and soared!!! This story stole my breath and took my tears. I felt it all in this HEART-POUNDING JOURNEY, one that leaves a permanent mark on the heart!!!


I’m still flying…SO HIGH!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-soaring stars

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?


I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Review – Throne of Secrets  by Graceley Knox 

6 out of 5 stars

 At this moment I’m shocked speechless. This by far is the best most fast paced books in this series. It furthermore confirms that this will forever be my FAVORITE Fae series EVER!  Graceley has gone beyond my wildest imagination and planted me so far into the story that I felt I was a part of it. 
Extremely vivid details make you feel like you are there in the midst of all the action taking place. And let me tell you,  there is so much that goes down in this book that I couldn’t even put it down for a bathroom break. I could care less that my bladder feels on  the verge if exploding. I couldn’t stop until the very last word. 
You will be hanging on the edge of your seat  and going on the ride of your lives as you go on the journey to save the lives of many. Ever really steps up her game and her relationship with Dare is absolutely perfect. I love how their relationship has blossomed and I was particularly happy with a little twist thrown in there that I can’t wait to see play out. 
I’ll definitely be waiting with baited breath for the next book to find out how everything is going to turn out. Graceley Knox has proven to be a talented author who will quickly climb the ladder in the literary world to the top!
