Review- Wedlocked by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine


My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

I am so happy to see Ace and Dylan get their happy ever after, but I am going to miss them so much. They have truly weaves their way into my heart and will forever reside there. This was a fantastic and heartfelt ending to a new beginning for them both.
This book was the perfect blend of everything. It was hot, but duh, because Dylan and Ace! It was also funny.. But most of all it was full of complete heartfelt emotion that I did admit made me cry a few times (happy tears).
All of our favorite characters from.the past come together to celebrate the joining of this absolutely perfect couple. It truly doesn’t get any better than this. My heart just feels pure joy right now. That ending completed me too. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.

As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.

“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”

“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.

Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”

Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”

A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”

“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”

His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”

“It’s more fun watching you.”

“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”

I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”

“If you’re lucky.”

I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.

“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”

“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.

“Yes?”

“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”

I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.

“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”

“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.

“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.

“Maybe a little.”

“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”

I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.

“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”

As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.

“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

Review – Catching Carly by Emma Hart

Catching Carly by Emma Hart

Here’s the thing..

I LOVE Romantic comedies.

I LOVE friends to lovers.

I LOOOOOOVE enemies to lovers even more.

I LOVE angsty hate, filled with humour and lust.

I LOVE to FEEL, to SWOON and to FALL IN LOVE.

And when I find a book that has all of the above and then even more too, I really LOVE it as well.

So, it’s safe to say that I freaking LOVE Catching Carly by Emma Hart.

Catching Carly is so much fun. It’s romantic comedy at it’s finest. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard while reading a book in ages. Carly is freaking hilarious. So witty and refreshingly honest. The honesty is what cemented my love for her! She’s undeniably sexy and sassy and just oozes “woman power”. I’m so glad Emma gave her a story and matched her to Zeke.

ZEKE ELLIOT. *falls to knees and praises Emma Hart for her creation*. Holy crap! There ain’t any doubt in my mind that Emma writes THE BEST hero’s. THE. BEST. And amazingly, she makes all her men different to the ones before. I mean yes, that are all hot alphas who are dirty and ridiculously sexy. And they ALWAYS know what they want and LORD do they get it. But each and every one has a different aspect to them. Zeke’s was his insecurity. It made him so much more swoony. Trust me. The man is deadly. And he ruined me ten times over!

With each Emma Hart book I read I find them harder and harder to review. Because they just hold such a high standard. I honestly struggle to find any negatives. Because there are none.. Emma nails story line, every time.
Emma smashes character connection, every time.

Emma kills it with feels, passion and love, EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Emma seduces her readers and captivates them entirely though every damn book. I’m in awe at everything the woman does. Her mind is a tremendous tool and it shows itself in every single book.

I’m captivated, consumed and well and truly caught up in Carly and Zeke!

From New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes another hilariously wild romantic comedy about being the third wheel in your friendship and, um, accidentally having sex with your best friend’s brother…

My name is Carly Porter… And I’m really good at bad decisions.

How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb…
I had sex with my best friend’s brother.
Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.
And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.
Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?
Right.

Review – Rise by Dylan Allen

Rise by Dylan Allen

From the moment I saw this cover I was intrigued. It’s STUNNING. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

Then I got it, and all I can say is wow! I am pumped from reading Rise, I happen to love EVERY SINGLE thing about it. And it’s a DEBUT! Like holy crap, if this is how Dylan starts her writing career I cannot wait to see how she builds on it.

Rise was brilliant. The story progressed in a really stunning way, I felt the pull between Addie & Simon almost instantly.

It was beautiful adventure through Addie’s loss, family pain and the control she’d sought from the moment everything went wrong. My heart broke for her in her periods of loneliness and while I can’t say I always connected to her I did UNDERSTAND her. I got her need for control and her need for making herself better.

Simon, was just GAH *cue heart eyes*! Despite being clouded by his own past and heartache, his passion and intensity definitely made me swoon. His personal strength shone bright. He was perfect.

Together, I got them, felt their connection and loved every single moment shared.

Rise, from start to finish, had me hooked. It excited me, it made me FEEL and love.

5 imperfectly beautiful stars.

As a little girl, I saw my father destroy the family he claimed to love. I watched my mother waste her life dreaming of a man who left her without a second glance.

As a woman, I don’t dream, I work. I don’t fall in love, I focus. I would never let anything as frivolous as love distract me.

Until I meet Simon. A gorgeous, brilliant young architect with dark eyes, a sweet smile, and a dirty, dirty mouth. He sets me on fire, and suddenly all I can do is dream…of his hands, his lips, his body. Of a heart good enough and a love strong enough to make me believe in happily ever after.

But Simon has secrets that are even deeper than mine. Will our pasts destroy everything we’ve worked for? Or will we find the courage to rise to the challenge and fight for the love we share?

Review – Royally Matched by Emma Chase 


¦¦rm-cover

Royally Matched by Emma Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. And you ask, “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, “What if you fly?” ~Erin Hanson

Our lives may not always be fairy tales, but we can experience them in books every day. Some books make us fly, carrying us to destinations unknown, daring us to dream. Oh did I dream in Emma Chase’s newest romantic delight. Royally Matched made my soul soar and my heart dance in a dreamy delight of a romance that is PURE HEAVEN.

Feeling like a Disney Princess, I dove into the delicious Royally Matched. I wanted to take my time, sprinkling myself into this dream like fairy dust, where I could bask into the glow of wonder. Reality: I swallowed this story nearly whole on a packed tour bus in route to the Czech Republic. When a book begins with the word, ‘BALLS,’ you can’t help but roll in laughter at the ensuing humor that follows.

Oh did I immediately chuckle like a drunk in that bus full of people who likely wondered if my water bottle was filled with vodka. That’s okay…I love books that begin with a BANG…of humor. Royally Matched made me giddy like a school girl! 

I like my sports the way I like to f**k—wild, loud and dirty.

I was insanely captivated and catapulted onto a stage filled with hot and humorous Henry, lighting me up with laughter and lust. Henry is pure heat. His dirty mouth is delicious!

Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco. GORGEOUS. Dark blond locks, emerald green eyes, a mouth and body of sin. Rebel rogue, the royal who marches to the beat of his own drum, and oh is it loud. Next in line to be King of Wessco, thanks to older brother screwing him over by marrying a commoner. Newest reality show star of Matched: Royal Edition where he gets to crown of 20 blue-blooded beauties as his princess.

Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum. BEAUTIFUL. Brown hair, brown eyes, glasses, and hour glass figure. Bookworm but looks like a naughty librarian. Librarian for real too. Sweet and shy but wants to be brazen and feel as beautiful inside as she does outside.

Henry only has eyes on the shy beauty in the corner who’s not on the reality show but tagged along with her sister who’s a contestant. 

“You’re pretty. Hasn’t anyone every told you that?”

“Not really.”

“They should have. You should’ve been told every day how pretty you are – inside and out.”

 

I MELTED!!! My body morphed into lava, a puddle of goo as Henry WOWED me in every way. This magical prince made me SMILE, SMOLDER, AND SWOON. Henry went from making my body melt with heat to melting my heart with words that uplifted this shy lass to the beauty she is inside and out. Sarah prefers to be in the background but Henry wants her front and center! He is giving Sarah her wings so she can finally fly. Oh did my FEELS FLUTTER!!!

This prince is a bit broken, a bit like Sarah in that they both need encouragement, someone to lift them up, hold them tight and tell them that they are worthy. Sarah is also giving Henry wings or perhaps the crown, the courage to be king and own that crown. 

This beautiful, broken, pitiful prince. Was Henry ever told how brilliant he is? Kind and strong, generous, and good? I don’t think he was and they should’ve told him. Every single day.

Oh did these sentiments of kindness and strong words of wisdom wrap themselves around me, making me FEEL EVERYTHING!!! Tears trickled down my cheeks as I felt for this prince who doesn’t feel king worthy. Prince Henry needs Sarah, this sweet and sensational gal who is making him feel like he could conquer the world. 

Her words make me feel. Like I’m a hundred feet tall and a thousand times as strong. Like I’m a superhero or a god. Like…I’m a king.

Henry and Sarah are each other’s saving grace…MINE TOO. 

I’m starting to think of it as the Henry Effect, because he makes me feel so many…things. Safe and wild and maybe just a little bit mad at once. Henry makes me want to take a chance. On new experiences. And on him.

Sweet, shy, and stunning Sarah is coming out of her shell. The beauty in the corner is slowly believing that she’s incredible, and it’s all because of one magnificent prince…sexy as sin and sweet as pie.

Speaking of pie…I’m suddenly HUNGRY.

“I’ve been thinking about this all day.”

I MELTED INSIDE.

It’s only when I speak that I realize I’m breathless. “About what?”

I WAS RENDERED BREATHLESS, as my heart beat out of its chest. 

And the man who will be my king sinks to his knees before me.

 

That image of the man to be king on his knees is POWERFUL, and image that nearly brought me to my knees.

“About tasting you. I’m going to lick you until my tongue gives out. Any objections?”

description

Oh…my…HEAT!!! I was on fire, my body blazing in need, thighs clenching hard. Every part of my body…ALL OF ME…was ACHING…aching for this prince…aching for this addicting story that scorched me EVERYWHERE. Reminder: I was still reading—a now slightly uncomfortable story because of location—on a tour bus full of people who hopefully did not think I was a pervy princess….though inside I was…am…I so am.

Oh God…His lips slide into an adorably crooked half-smile.

“Speechless, love? Was it something I said?”

Oh Henry, I bow to you and your magical tongue with its sweet words and its even sweeter touches to the princess promised land of the lower region. I wanted to be Henry’s princess badly. 

He could crush me; the foreshadowing is clearly written. It’s a tale as old as time: the inexperienced bluestocking and the bed-hopping rogue. Bloody hell; I’m a trope.

Royally Matched crushed me, crashing into me with a force I never saw coming. 

I’m not going to fall. I can’t. Because Henry has shown me how to fly.

Henry has made Sarah see the world through new eyes where she wants to take that leap with him, sprouting the wings he gave her to fly. 

And I feel like I’m falling after all—like my wings have been clipped.

However, with flying, there’s a risk of falling…falling in love and even falling down on your face when your wings break by the one who gave them to you.

Royally Matched gave me wings, and I am still flying so fast from this fairy tale, my soul soaring high like an eagle in the sky. But I’m still falling too…falling in UTTER LOVE with this brilliant and beautiful book…falling in love with a prince who still has my heart. Prince Henry had my heart before this book. There’s more to this playboy prince than meets the eye: a huge heart waiting for the right woman to unlock it and hold it as her own. This prince held my heart in his hands…owning it…OWNING ME. Royally Matched UNEQUIVOCALLY OWNED ME.

After reading Royally Screwed, I knew Henry would be my favorite prince and oh was HE ALL THAT AND MORE!!! This prince doesn’t follow the crowd, he leads them…sometimes in a t-shirt, jeans, and combat boots. Gorgeous inside and out, Henry is both rogue and regal, a lethal combo for a powerful and passionate prince. A prince who went from callous and cocky playboy to caring and confident man fit for a king. Although Sarah is Henry’s polar opposite, their connection is commanding; she completes him in every way.

The laugh-out-loud humor, off-the-charts chemistry, passion, smolder, strength, sweetness, swoon, soul, and sooo much heart…Royally Matched was EVERYTHING!!! Royally Matched royally exceeded my expectations!!! I did not expect this story to twist and turn itself around me where I FELT ALL THE FEELS. I did not expect to CRY sad tears along with my happy ones. I did not expect to swoon, but oh did I SWOON IN SPADES. I could not help but FALL IN UTTER LOVE with this rom-com that is a fierce and feel-worthy fairy tale but SO MUCH MORE.

Royally Matched blew me away! This book is bloody brilliant and a top 2017 read already!!! I fell in UTTER LOVE with this soul-searing and swoon-filled story!

I may have been late to jump on board the Emma Chase Fan Girl Train, but oh am I a passenger for life! Emma Chase has quickly climbed to the tier of my all-time favorite authors. Her imagination, humor, and heart are poured into every beautiful and brilliant word she writes, words that sparkle like diamonds, and books that are PURE GOLD. Emma Chase doesn’t simply write stories; she pens escapes from reality, adventures where I free-fall so hard that I don’t want to surface for air; I don’t want to stop dreaming.

This book shone in beauty and brilliance like a diamond, lighting me up. Royally Matched CAUGHT ME…CLAIMED ME…CROWNED ME in BOOK BLISS. My heart is still chasing the high of Royally Matched, a hypnotic and heartfelt tale that hit me like Cupid’s arrows, dart after dart, straight to the heart.

Royally Matched was my humor…my heat…my heart…my heaven. Royally Matched was a MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN!!! With a SWEET SIGH and permanent smile etched on my face, I’m still floating on Cloud Nine where I feel like Cinderella, royally hitched to this fairy tale forever. I’m still dreaming too…DREAMING BIG.

“My story hasn’t been written yet, but I know it begins with you.”

synopsis

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him “space”—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit… and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

excerpt

Sarah stands up and presses her lips against mine. And it’s so unexpected, so surprising—I freeze up. But only for a moment. As her mouth gently moves over mine, I begin to thaw. She’s so fucking soft, her taste so very sweet. The kiss is almost chaste—at least it’s the most chaste I’ve ever had. Unpracticed.

    And yet, it still manages to make my heart pound against my ribs like an animal in a cage.

    “What are you doing?” I whisper, when she pulls back just a little.

    “I’m distracting you.” She looks up at me uncertainly. From behind those ridiculously prim little glasses with those big, dark eyes that could bring me to my knees. “Is it working?”

    My tongue traces my lower lip, craving more of her.

    “I’m not sure. Keep trying—I’ll let you know.”

    She smiles quick and relieved . . . and then she reaches back up, wraps her arms about my neck, and kisses me.

    Her two lips envelop my lower one, then the upper, all eager, pleasing sweetness. My hands find Sarah’s lower back and I pull her in close, tight against me. Slowly, I open my mouth and she mirrors my movement, opening for me. And it’s good. So very, very good.

    It’s like my blood has turned to gasoline, and the touch of her wet, warm tongue is the spark.

    I delve deeper, kiss her harder—more demanding—taking the lead. I cup her head in my hands, holding her still while I plunge and devour. A moan seeps from her lips and I devour that too.

    But then, breathing harshly, I tear my mouth away.

    “Sarah, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should just—”

    “I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I’ve wanted this for a long time. I want . . . you.” It’s only then that hesitation dims her eyes. “Do you want me too?”

    I grip her arms. “More than I’ve wanted anything or anyone in my entire life.”

    She takes my hands in hers, lifts them and presses my palms to her breasts. They’re soft and full and absolutely perfect.

    “Show me.”

    Beneath her robe, her bedclothes are paper thin. I trace my thumbs across her nipples, feeling them harden and peak. I want to suck on them until she’s mindless. I want to lick every inch of her skin and watch her flush with desire.

    I wrap my arms around Sarah and lift her right off her feet. With a groan, my mouth is back to hers. Her small pretty hands cup my jaw as I carry her toward the bed. I stop against a wall on the way, knocking a frame sideways, lifting her leg in one hand and wrapping it around my hip so I can thrust against her.

    There’s so much I know—deviant, filthy, lovely moves. And I want to teach her every damn one.

Review-Tru Flame by Edie Danford


My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

This book knocked me on my as* from the start. I was in no way expecting what hit as soon as the book started. Tru and Jones had their fair share of struggles in this book and my heart broke for them, but watching them slowly break down the barriers to happiness made my heart so full.


So, the book starts off with Sandra disappearing and then calling and letting the guys know that she is leaving and the baby now belongs to them. Imagine the stunned shock that shook Tru and Jones to the core. Jones was more on board and determined to make the most of it, while Tru struggled. 
Tru never wanted  children since his experience with parents were less than stellar. It caused a lot of contention between Jones and Tru. I was truly concerned for where their relationship was headed with how Tru was handling things.


In the end, everything is perfect and just the way it was meant to be. A happy ending for all. I absolutely loved going on this journey with Tru and Jones. I will definitely miss them.



In the final chapter of the Ember Peak series, Tru and Jones face an unexpected challenge on their road to happy ever after.

Tru and Jones never expected riding off into the sunset to be easy. Their relationship’s script has never been silver-screen smooth or shiny. But dealing with life’s boulders, washouts, and irksome little details is no problem now…because they’re facing each bump in the road together. 

But when Tru’s sister announces she wants—and desperately needs—him and Jones to adopt her baby, the new couple’s notions of family, home, their upcoming marriage, and even living at Ember Peak are flung into chaos. 

They’ve defined themselves as lovers, partners, and future husbands—but are they ready, and do they even want to be, fathers? If they are to form a forever family, Tru and Jones will have to help each other navigate a new path they never expected to travel.

Review-The Way To His Heart by Felice Stevens

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

This was short but sweet. I fell in love with Gideon and Jonah. Gideon has so many demons that he is doubting himself and everything in his life. 
After hearing that his dyslexia is probably not going to improve much more than it currently is. He feels worthless and it broke my heart. He also has to face the father who was never a real father to him. To forgive or not forgive? That is the question!

The love between these 2 reached out to my heart. I can always count on Felice to give me all the feels.


Love is going pretty well for Gideon Marks. He’s living with his boyfriend, Jonah, and his business is thriving beyond his wildest dreams. So why is he still worried he’s not enough, and all he holds dear will slip through his fingers?
Jonah Fine has everything he wants; he’s head over heels in love with Gideon and has finally stepped out from under the shadow of his father. Aware of Gideon’s continuing struggle with dyslexia, Jonah tries to reassure him that they are equal partners in their relationship by making their first Valentine’s Day one to remember.
Ghosts from the past reappear, sending Gideon into a tailspin. He must make the decision to either hold on to the anger he grew up with or forgive the pain he’s carried with him all his life. It will take all of Gideon’s courage, Jonah’s love, and a special surprise for Gideon to finally realize the one person he must learn to love is himself

EXCERPT

“Do you think I do that? Live with regrets until they’ve made me afraid to accept happiness and accept you loving me?”

I knew to choose my words carefully. “I think you’ve been alone so long it’s colored your outlook on life. And considering you’re one of the most fearless men I’ve ever met, I think it’s made you afraid to move forward. Your mother’s death and your father’s treatment of you left emotional scars. You have a hard time letting people in to help you.”

Gideon stood up, and I missed him immediately; I sat up and watched him pace the floor, holding his wine as he formulated his thoughts. My heart broke for him as I watched his inner turmoil break him down until he collapsed in the chair opposite me.

“I love you, Jonah. Thinking about being without you scares the shit out of me. I don’t want to be alone; I can’t anymore. But it’s not the being alone part that scares me. I’ve been alone all my life. It’s the being without you. I don’t want to lose you. Today made me realize how I could easily hurt you and push you away.” He gulped his wine then wiped his mouth on his sleeve and shuddered.

“It won’t happen.” I swung my legs off the sofa to go sit on the coffee table and face him. “I won’t let it.”

“I’m telling you. I’m perfect at ruining a good thing.”

“I’m not a good thing. I’m the best damn thing to ever happen to you.”

“I know that. But I don’t ever want you feeling like you have to stay with me because you feel sorry for me.”

I plucked the glass out of his hand and placed it on the table then stood and pulled him into my arms. “I feel many, many things for you—desire, absolute lust, but most of all, love. I’m with you because I love you, Gideon, and that’s never going to change.” 

The pain in his eyes slayed me. When would he realize he deserved to be loved?

A slight smile curved Gideon’s lips. “Absolute lust huh? I think I like the sound of that.”

Review – Casanova by Emma Hart 

Casanova by Emma Hart

EMMA HART. 

See that name. Memorise it. Read her books. Learn her words. LOVE her words. Because I guarantee that you will, LOVE EVERYTHING about this woman and her books.

I started Casanova with one thing in mind. DON’T FALL FOR THE ASSHOLE. I’m typically this person in real life so I thought okay, be strong. Try and reject a Hart Hero. (Trust me that ain’t no easy feat).

Let me tell you I got to 15% and I knew I was slipping. 

By 24% I was almost there. 

By 52% I had FAILED and LOVED this guy immensely. 

The way Emma writes her Hero’s is with carnal, raw, perfection. Honestly, I cannot find a negative thing to say about him. His cocky, dirty, sinful, arrogance gave me tingles. His swoony, delicious goodness gave me butterflies. He ultimately became my FAVOURITE HART HERO. I COULD NOT get enough. 

As always, Emma wrote one amazing heroine. Without a doubt, there is no one better than Emma Hart, that writes a female character so strongly. All of Emma’s heroines are sexy, sassy, classy and know how to bring men to their knees. Lani has now become my favourite Hart heroine. She was so much fun. I loved her. 

What you get with Casanova though is so much more. Emma has seriously nailed the best friends to enemies to lovers trope with this one. She’s meshed love and hate together so fluidly that you cannot help but FEEL as the power of the words flows through your whole body. 
Strip back the ridiculously HOT cover, strip back the asshole, strip back the sassy brunette and what you get is a freaking amazing love story. Lani and Brett alone MAKE this book. Everything else, the secondary characters, which were fantastic, the crazy relatives, that were hilarious, are all just a big bonus. 

What I didn’t expect was to be so utterly consumed by everything Lani and Brett. They made me so emotional, that beautiful, breathtaking, angsty kind of emotional though. They made me HOT, like fan me down right now kinda hot. They made me laugh out loud. They pissed me off. And cry, dude, I cried. This book has it all, I kid you not, it HAS IT ALL. 

Casanova captivates, it consumes, it catapults itself into the heart, mind, body and soul and cements itself there. 
It’s my favourite Hart book to date. No amount of stars will ever cover this. EVER.

Once upon a time, I loved him.

He broke me and he didn’t even know it.

I ran from him.

He didn’t chase me.

He never needed to, because he knew I’d come back.

He was right.

Death brought me home to him.

Brett Walker.

Drop dead gorgeous and filthy-mouthed with a smile that turns saints to sinners.

A casanova to his core.

My ex-best friend.

And the bad boy whose reputation precedes him—the same reputation I’m tasked with turning to gold… Or so they think.

Revenge is a dish best served cold, after all…

Review – Friction by Emily Snow

friction-cover

Friction by Emily Snow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is a certain excitement that comes with the unknown…the unexpected. Trying something new is a risk but reward, a challenge and adventure. The giddy delight I get when I meet a new or new-to-me author’s words is BOOKWORM BLISS! That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I met my first book by Emily Snow after being a Snow stalker for a while, and it was incredible indeed! Friction is a heart-stopping sexy friends-to-boss-to lovers romance that bleeds angst and amusement, leaving you melting for more!

I fell in INSTANT LOVE with Friction that gripped me hard, holding me in its clutches, holding me captive, holding me…OWNING ME. The witty and wondrous writing—full of delicious inner thoughts, playful banter, and heat that burned up this book—was pure intoxication. I could not put this fierce and flaming tale down. Alluring. Amusing. All-consuming. I WAS ALL IN!

Beautiful dark-haired and hazel-eyed Lucy Williams has had a storm of bad luck, a cheating husband and then failed marriage, job losses, and the return to living with her mother. Her personal life is heading towards cat lady central. Lucy needs a good dose of lady luck.

Luck finally lands in the smart and sassy Lucy’s lap when she lands a new job at a company selling unique products. The owner and her boss happens to be her high school fantasy, Jace Exley. Sex-on-a-stick Jace is dark-haired, blue-eyed, inked, and muscular…an Adonis. 

“As of a few minutes ago, Jace Exley – former underachiever and object of my school girl fantasies – is my boss. And boss-related filthiness is at the top rung of unprofessionalism.”

One look from Jace is an instant thigh clencher. One touch is both heaven and hell.

“It’s not fair that the slightest touch from this man has the power to electrify my heart and body and mind.”

Lucy doesn’t want to crush on her hot boss and former school crush but she can’t fight that fire-hot attraction that surrounds them like an aura. Little does Lucy know that her boss has a heavy dose of Lucy lust. When boss and worker with off-the-charts chemistry collide or more like combust, it’s a frenzy of forbidden fireworks.

“The kiss catches me off guard. It’s bruising, almost punishing, as he spreads my lips apart with his tongue…He tastes as good as he smells, and I find myself unable to quit him or this.”

That kiss is molten lava, which melted me from head to toe. Jace’s dirty and delicious mouth melted me even more. Jace loves to get a rise out of the more conservative, cool, and collected Lucy, and oh is it HOT!

“Lucy, seeing your lips wrap around the word f**k makes me want to put my c**k in every hole in your body.”

Holy mother of molten heat! The heat, oh did it soar off the pages right to my body, sending it to such a scorching level that I contemplated a cold shower break.

“You can’t have me or don’t want to?”

Lines are blurred as the employee and friends-only relationships get rocky with this electricity too strong to fight. Friction is fierce and the forbidden is one titanic temptation. Will the former high school crushes forgo the employee-boss relationship and finally make a love connection?

Friction has THE CLICK—that connection to the characters and everything about the story from inside out—where I could not help but fall fast and furiously IN LOVE with the captivating characters, the combustible chemistry, the amusing and burning banter, the angst, the flawless writing, and more…JUST EVERYTHING! This story is sheer brilliance from beginning to end. New-to-me author, Emily Snow, delivered big time and completely WOWED ME. I’m forever team Snow all the way!

A fire-hot, funny, and forbidden romance, Friction is PURE INTOXICATION. Body blazing. Thighs trembling. Soul swooning. I could not get enough this fiery and fierce Friction that burned every part of me. I LOVED this raw, romantic, and refreshingly real read! Friction was unputdownable! I can still feel this fabulous Friction thrashing through me.

synopsis.jpg

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.

Recent divorce, check.

Pending lawsuit, check.

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.

It can’t get much worse, right?

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she’s positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she’s advertising is a little … unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she’s seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He’s also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.

And the friction between them?

Well, that’s the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at…

Review – Being Brooke by Emma Hart

I can’t breathe. I’m really struggling to take in a breath, because I’m smiling so damn big right now that it’s actually hurting my face. In fact if I’m honest I never stopped smiling through this book, from the first page to the very last Being Brooke has made me laugh, swoon, feel and love. 

There was something incredibly refreshing about this book. It wasn’t all brooding asshole alpha and hot sex but dya know what, it didn’t need it. The whole story is captivating. It’s one of those books that just implants itself in your heart and refuses to let go. It was funny and filled with laugh out loud humour and sarcasm. Everything about this book screams rom com, done so perfectly, it’s one of my faves of the whole year.

Brooke aka the Hot Mess was an outstanding character. I loooooved her so freaking much. She is one of the realist characters I have ever read, her personality was infectious. I want to be friends with this woman, she’s one of those characters that you just connect with. And Emma, as usual wrote her superbly, not that I ever doubted her, Emma writes the best heroines! 

And Cain, OMG Cain! Why, how, does Emma manage to write men that just RUIN every part of you? Because he will, every single damn part…RUINED. IN THE BEST WAY! There has not been one single Hart hero that I haven’t fallen head over heels with. And Cain! Cain! I actually have no words guys. Just YES! GAH! And ALL THE THINGS! Because he is, all the things! 

He is the best friend, the guy you have loved forever, the guy that you can’t ever let know how you truly feel. Yup. I’ve been there, done that, and so FELT EVERY DAMN WORD OF THIS BOOK! And that is what makes this book so damn special, because it’s TOO FREAKING REAL and you can connect to it all. Feel it all, bask in all its otherworldly goodness. 
I adore Emma, her books are addictive, her writing is flawless, everything about Emma’s writing is just perfection. Without a doubt she is one of my ultimate favourite authors. When her stories are THIS GOOD and just keep getting better how can she not be a? 

Being Brooke was an hilarious, refreshing read that stole my heart and exploded with real, breathtaking beauty.

From New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes a brand new standalone novel. BEING BROOKE is a laugh-out-loud, witty, sexy, and sometimes highly inappropriate romantic comedy about being in love with your best friend. And how much that freaking sucks.

My name is Brooke Barker…

And I’m a freaking disaster.

No, seriously. I’m a college drop-out working a dead-end job, my best friend Carly’s dog gets more action than I do, and I have more bad dates in my diary than there are movie remakes. 

Not to mention I’m completely and utterly in love with Cain Elliott.

The problem? He’s in a relationship. With a girl who’s so plastic she makes Barbie cry herself to sleep with jealousy. 

The second problem? He’s my best friend.

My shut-up-and-put-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend. 

And that’s all he can be, right?

Right.
