Review – The Boy Next Door by Ella James

The Boy Next Door cover

Review graphic

Ella James, in all of her amazing talent, has given us twists on fairy tales, vices, and a celebrutante and her haunted prince. With The Boy Next Door, Ella is back and to say she has grown in her talent and found a beautiful voice is an understatement. This story is unlike anything she has ever offered. This is a second chance love story filled with angst, twists and turns and two people trying to let go of the past and move forward together. Still the past is never far away when Dash and Amelia are together.

He was the boy who saved her life the first day he met her at age six. He was her first love and the boy who left and never came back. One special night together. That’s all there was. There is no heartbreak like that from the one person that you believed would be always be by your side. Ammy grows up, graduates from high school and eventually lands a summer internship while in college. It’s when her boss turns around in his chair that Amelia’s life changes again – Dash is her boss. The boy next door is back.

Dash and Amelia’s story had me so completely engrossed. They clearly love each other. Even if Dash has felt that he needed to stay away from Amelia, his heart has always been with her. Amelia is angry, lost and bewildered about why Dash has forgotten her but her heart belongs with Dash. Their chemistry simmers but the romance is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. Dash is as swoony as he is haunted and riddled with guilt and life altering secrets. Though she tries to deny what she feels, Ammy knows what her heart wants but she’s scared to believe she could finally have everything she has ever wanted with Dash.

There are no words to describe how incredible Ella’s book is. It is absolutely stunning. I laughed and I cried – a very ugly cry at that. The Boy Next Door is brilliant and beautiful and I’m mad that it’s over. Dash and Amelia held me hostage. The love they share is one built on youth, first love, shattered dreams and secrets. The secrets floored me. The secondary characters… especially Dash’s sister… are vital to this amazing tale. I fell into this book and was so gripped by it. Truth be told I still am.

Simply amazing! Congratulations, Ella!

SIX Beautiful Dove STARS!

The Boy Next Door teaser Dash

The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier—my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.

No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.

Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.

He’s not the boy next door. Not anymore.

I’m guarding my heart this time.

But Dash has secrets that could break us both.

Drown the memory

FB_IMG_1494244623114

He runs a finger over my lip, giving me the saddest look. A look that I can’t handle, so I kiss him hard—to hurt—and am rewarded with a bark-groan sound. Then we’re in his car; I’m spread out on the back seat, Dash is lording over me, his body crowding the small space, his mouth and hands more frenzied than usual.

He makes me come hard, twice, and then he kisses my cheek, helps me put my clothes to rights, and pushes the car door open. One look at his tented pants, and I want to do something about it…

But I get in the front seat anyway.

“Your eyes look nice,” he says as he backs out. “I always loved your glasses, but your eyes are even better.”

I give him side-eye at the use of the word “always.” Dash has the good grace to look down, then at the road. When we get back to our building, he walks around and opens my door. I get out, laughing when I notice the party in his pants.

“Looks like you’re having a hard time there.”

“Har har.”

“Maybe you should carry me inside. Sort of in front of you?” I giggle.

I shrug, and Dash throws me over his shoulder. He carries me all the way to the elevator, and when we reach the seventh floor, he picks me up again. He’s still hard when he drops me on my doormat.

I eye his impressive tent. “Pretty sure there’s something in your pants there.”

“You think?”

I nod slowly. “Definite trouser snake. Too bad you can’t get someone to help you…let it out.”

“Can’t I?”

Then his mouth is on my neck; my key is in the door; the two of us are on my foyer floor…and Dash is in my mouth.

He's My Boss

Review-Tease by Ella Frank

My rating is 6 out 5 stars

Holy mother of God. Who doesn’t want more Logan and Tate?? These two have an extremely special place in my soul and I was so thrilled that this series was getting 3 more books. This book was beyond my wildest dreams. 
Tate and Logan have both finally built a foundation that no one can break. To see them so extremely happy and in love, made my day.  
Ella is my hero. She sucks you into her world and you feel the way these characters do. If they hurt, you hurt. If they smile, you smile. If they get down and dirty, you get the picture 😉 !
I couldn’t have been happier with the progression of these two and will be anxiously waiting for book 5. Even if it came tomorrow, it wouldn’t be soon enough!!

“The Temptation Series by Ella Frank was proof that if we open our minds and our hearts to love without boundaries, the result is nothing less than extraordinary.”

— Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Tease, the sexy new installment in The Temptation Series by Ella Frank is available now!!!

Tease (Temptation #4) by Ella Frank

Four years ago I met a man

who forever changed my life.

He dared me to try.

I dared him to love.

And while that’s where our story began, it’s certainly not where it ended.

-Tate Morrison

“Hello, counselor. How’d the big case go today?”

Tate had been eyeing the clock all afternoon waiting to hear the outcome of the Berivax trial, and while he was happy it was finally going to be over, he also hoped all of Logan’s hard work had paid off.

“When was the last time we had sex?” Logan’s question was so blunt and unexpected it had Tate stumbling over his response for a second, and when he didn’t answer, Logan continued, “You don’t know, do you?”

The side of Tate’s mouth twitched at Logan’s disgusted tone. “Well, to be fair, you caught me off guard. I had to think for a minute.”

“And now that you’ve had time to think?”

“Umm…”

“Oh my God. You can’t remember,” Logan said, and Tate couldn’t stop his laugh then. “That’s fucking shameful.”

“We’ve just been—”

“Don’t say it—”

“—busy.” Tate headed over to the door that separated the bar from the tiny foyer and stairwell that went up to their loft, shut it behind himself, and took a seat on one of the steps. “Well, we have been. This case of yours has taken up most of your time, and with the bar hours we just got…busy.”

“Yeah? Well, that shit needs to stop. Right now.”

Tate leaned his shoulder against the wall and shut his eyes, picturing Logan with his jet-black hair, those piercing blue eyes, and that full, sensual mouth. Tate had barely had time to say goodbye to him this morning, and no matter how much he was laughing it off, Logan was right—this not seeing one another was bullshit. They needed to sit down and work something out, now that Logan’s schedule would be returning to something more manageable.

“Agreed,” Tate said. “Something needs to change.”

“Good. How about we discuss it at dinner?”

Tate winced. “I’m here until one.”

“Can’t you beg Amelia to stay and come meet me?” Logan asked, and if he hadn’t sounded quite so desperate, Tate might not have caved.

“Depends.”

“On?”

“What am I going to get if I come to you?”

Logan’s voice lowered to a tone that never failed to make Tate hard. “Me. All night. And maybe again in the morning. I’m in a giving kind of mood.”

Tate swallowed and stretched his legs out in front of himself, suddenly needing a little more room in his jeans. “All night, huh? It’s been a while since that happened.”

“It has. So come find me and I’ll rectify that little issue you’re having with remembering our weekend away at the cabin. That was the last time my cock was inside you.”

“Jesus, Logan.” Tate pressed a palm to his erection, recalling the weekend trip they’d made around three weeks ago. Or maybe it was four. Shit, okay. They did need to work something out if he was having trouble remembering that. “Let me get things settled here and I’ll be at your office in”—he checked his watch—“an hour? Hour and a half?”

“Perfect,” Logan said. “I’ll be waiting.”

Hiring my brother’s best friend was not on my to-do list.
Neither was he.

Expanding my dirty cocktail bar into food was supposed to be easy, except finding a chef in my little town of Whiskey Key is anything but.

Until Parker Hamilton comes home—bringing his Michelin starred chef’s hat with him.

He has no work. I need someone like him in my new kitchen.

I’m bored. She needs what I can give her.

“I still don’t understand why you have those vulgar cocktail names.”
I raised my eyebrow. I knew her bar was called Dirty, but I thought that was just because she could make a mean martini.

Her cheeks flushed light pink. It was barely noticeable through her tanned skin. “Because it’s different,” she replied. “It gets people talking, and that brings business. Not to mention that three-quarters of my menu is original, and people love that.”

“Yes, but what’s that new one you just added?”

Ryan grinned. “The Slutwhisperer.”

I smirked. I couldn’t fucking help it.

“It’s a horrible word,” Alexandra sniffed.

“I’d like a slutwhisperer.” Raven and Ryan’s grandfather shuffled out onto the porch. “Do you think it would spice up my life?”

“Maybe,” Raven answered. “But I’d wait until the reunion is over. You know Great-Aunt Maria gets rowdy after a drink or two. It’s probably best not to give her an opening, Grandpa.”

He grumbled something as he settled into his chair. Something that sounded an awful lot like “Fuck that shit,” and made Raven choke on her laughter.

“You have a cocktail called The Slutwhisperer?” I asked her, hiding my smile behind my glass of water. “Where did you come up with that?”

She tapped her finger against her temple and reached for her own water. “That’s probably one of the best names. Although, some of the others are pretty epic.”

“Now, I feel the need to come and find them out.”

“Imagine my bar is a church and you’re a demon,” she said. “I’ll be holding the matches.”

“She isn’t kidding,” Ryan muttered.

“Do you still do that screwdriver twist one?” Their grandpa asked.

“Reg,” Alexandra groaned.

“You know the one,” he continued, oblivious to her discomfort. “With the orange juice.”

Raven cleared her throat and looked down at the table. “You mean the Dirty Screw, Grandpa.”

“Yes!” He thumped the table with his fist. “I’m coming for breakfast. I need a Dirty Screw.”

“What the hell is a Dirty Screw?” I looked at Raven.

She glanced over at her mom, biting the inside of her cheek and fighting a smile. “Exactly what it sounds like.”

“If I order one, how happy will it make me?”

“Not very. I’ll probably throw it over you.”

“I’ll take my chances.”

“Fool.”

Review- Oliver by FG Adams

My rating is 5 out 5 stars

Another amazing 5 star read from FG Adams. This book will suck you into its vortex and not let you go until it’s over. Each nook in this series gets better and better.

Just imagine being on.the run for so many years not only for your life but the life of your family. I can’t even imagine. She is a strong heroine, and I admire that so much in my readings.

Oliver has had his fair share of awful things in his life. His only mission now is to find the girl and NOT fall in love. Oh boy. That’s gonna be a tough one. Lol. We all know how that works out. You can fight the pull all you want, but if its meant to be, there is nothing you can do about it.

Amazing book. Action packed. Heart gripping. Emotional. Highly recommend.

Soulmates destined to collide.

Six years after surviving a tragic loss, a photograph of a young woman turns Oliver Bishop’s world upside down. He’s on a mission, tracking her from state to state. Each stop bringing him closer to finding her. Will his search find the ghost vixen, or will the madman stalking her get to her first?

After fourteen years of running from a nightmare, Fallyn Blackwood barely escaped her stalker’s clutches in Washington. When a sexy stranger walks into Ray’s Diner, her entire world shifts on its axis. Scared and determined, she finds herself fighting his protective nature—and her desire. The problem is, she’s not looking to be saved.

He’s come too far to back down. He found her, and he won’t let go. Freedom from the past is within his grasp, and he’ll fight for her love.

By the time I’ve showered and changed, the delectable aroma of pizza permeates the room. Oliver is perched on the bed, taking up most of the space, with a piece of mouth-watering heaven in his hands. His hair is wet and he has a new change of clothes on. Where did he shower? Do I really care? He looks good enough to eat.

Just then my tummy grumbles, reminding me of another hunger. I lift the box. When I notice what he’s ordered, I freeze in my tracks.

“You don’t like chicken and jalapeño pizza? Ever since trying it in Texas, I don’t want another flavor. I’m obsessed.”

He snorts, takes a bite, and points to a corner desk.

“I ordered a salad and chicken tenders if you would rather have that.”

“It’s not that. It’s my go-to pizza of choice. Harper devours mine at least once a week.”

He stops chewing and stares quizzically my way.

“You don’t say?”

I wonder what else we have in common. Is he the yin to my yang, the Tom to my Jerry, the warmth needed to melt the ice in my heart?

Before I have time to respond, he asks, “Beer or wine?”

“Beer, of course,” I answer immediately.

“Football or baseball?”

“Football. You know I’m from the south. We love our teams.”

“Gator or Nole?”

“Florida Gator all the way, baby. Before all this happened, I planned on going to college in Gainesville.”

I shrug, push the haunting memories back, and focus on enjoying the game we are playing.

“Chocolate or vanilla?”

“Neither. Chunky Monkey.”

“Really? Okay. What about river or beach?”

“Depends. Do we fish or swim?”

“Fish.”

“Then river. Okay, stud, my turn.”

From out of nowhere, a devilish grin appears. He inclines his chin then sinks his teeth into the steaming pie.

“Sunrise or sunset?”

I chew a jalapeño and wait.

“Sunrise.”

“Ford or Chevy?”

“Ford.”

“Country or rock ’n roll?”

His forehead crinkles deep in thought before he answers.

“Nope can’t choose. Love ‘em both.”

Mouth full of yumminess, I reply, “Fair enough, Ollie. I totally agree with you. Spring or fall?”

“Well, since that’s when I kissed you, fall is my preference, baby.”

I stutter, shocked by his answer, and whisper, “Hipster or bikini?”

“Commando.”

He smirks.

“Then I won’t tell you what I’m wearing under these clothes,” I playfully banter.

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.”

About Brooke Blaine: 

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series. 
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.

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.
