Review- Girl Forsaken by Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers

5 out of 5 stars

I’ve been a huge fan of Graceley Knox from her very first book. It’s very exciting seeing her journey on and continue pumping out one amazing book after another. Seeing her pair up with another author, D.D., is just amazing.

This is a continuation of book 1. You must read book 1 before starting this one. Sasha is still kickass and caught in a triangle. I love triangles. I know a lot of people don’t but I love the mystery behind them.

Action packed and fast paced, you’ll read this book in one sitting. Be careful for that cliffy😉😉. Book 3 is coming soon. What will the future bring?

Every betrayal begins with trust . . .

A lot has happened since the brutal attack that transformed Sasha Keleterina into one of the undead. She’s left Arsen and the Draugur vampires behind but dealing with Niko and his advances almost sends her crawling back. Though Arsen continues to beg for her forgiveness, she’s still too raw from his betrayal to be near him.

When Jackson learns the truth about Sasha’s attack, Sasha is once again conflicted about where her loyalties lie and who her true friends are. The clock is ticking, and with an all-out war on the horizon, Sasha desperately fights to find a cure to save not just the vampires . . . but herself.

Who knew being a vampire would be so tough?

Review – Unconscious Hearts by Harper Sloan

UnconsciousHearts_FrontCover

Crystal's review

She has given us security corps, sexy strippers, hot rockers and cool cowboys. Then she comes along with him. Thorn Evans. Oh, Harper. How can we ever thank you for gifting us with one of the most alpha, sexiest, most demanding heroes that you have ever written?

He’s a dream in tight tee shirts and jeans but makes a dress shirt and slacks look like a tuxedo. He grumpy, direct and to the point. His words left not only his girl swooning and sighing. I did too! But it isn’t just his smoldering looks or his commands that make Thorn incredible. It’s his heart. It’s the vulnerable behind the bluster… the way this man holds himself back because he’s seen so much and hurt that much more. He captivates from the moment he steps onto the pages and before I could turn those pages, he had my heart and to this day hasn’t let go.

Ari Daniels has had her share of heartbreak. Her past is filled with tragedy. One single act of betrayal changes her world. She is at a place in her life where she seems to be simply surviving instead of truly living. Ari isn’t prepared for this giant of a man who enters her life and for the first time in seven years makes her feel again. He batters and fights and won’t stop. He’s a hurricane with his sights set on destroying anything and anyone who stands in the way of his beauty… his more. What I loved so much about Ari is how she embraced her pain, looked it right in the eye and gave it the finger. And then she not only lived… she thrived. I cheered her on, applauded her strength and was jealous. That’s right. Absolutely jealous this woman had an amazing man like Thorn to awaken her senses and share her new experiences.

The secondary cast of characters in this story are just as vital as Thorn and Ari. They weaved their magic and made me laugh out loud. Thorn’s very best friend Wilder and Ari’s truest friend Piper have their own amazing story to tell. And just from the brief glimpse of them, theirs will burn hot and very heavy.

Unconscious Hearts is a tremendous love story. It is a story about courage, forgiveness and family and not just family by blood, but family by choice. It’s an emotional twisty roller coaster ride from heart stopping devastation to mile high elation. It’s the story of two scattered souls finding beauty and more. I hated when it ended but loved it at the very same time. Ari and Thorn’s story was sexy, sensual and real. So real. I was with every page I read and still am blown away.

This is truly Harper Sloan at her very best. Bravo, Harper! FANTASTIC!

Ari Daniels didn’t count on her whole world tumbling down around her in a mess of shredded promises, broken love, and unbelievable heartbreak. Alone and stricken with grief, she shouldered the blame and eventually closed her heart off, refusing to open it for another.  After all, anytime she tried, guilt and regret were waiting in the wings to remind her how painful it was.

A bet and one steamy night with a stranger force Ari to confront all she’s been hiding behind.  She tries to move on, but he refuses to stand down, wanting what she is terrified to give—herself.  This man may very well destroy her in the end, especially when it’s clear he has his own demons.

What happens when two broken souls come together, finally allowing themselves to believe in the beauty of love … only to have to fight harder than ever to keep it.

His eyes get hard for a beat before his features smooth back out.  “Yeah, beyond sure.  No one to pass this shit down to, and even if there was, I wouldn’t be givin’ someone ideas of materialistic bullshit if I did.  More to life than all this shit.”

“Okay, well, in that case …” I cough, not wanting to fight with him about our views when it comes to expensive wants versus needs.  Last time I tried to argue the benefits of learning to care for and value something you work hard to buy, I had a black eye for almost two weeks.   “In that case, I’m prepared to offer you a lump sum as a buyout for the whole collection, but I also want to mention, again, that consignment would be a more lucrative approach.  Our buyout is just a standard percent of resale value, but consignment would allow us to mark up each to give you a larger profit.”

“Told you, babe, want it gone.  I don’t give a shit about making it more lucrative.  Look around you, hardly hurting.”

“Still, it’s my obligation to make sure you’re informed.”

“Consider me informed.”

“Okay … so I can offer a tentative amount of three million.  I would need more time to inspect each item in depth for any defects that could affect the value and also to research a few pieces I feel may be limited editions so that could also affect the value.  Meaning that amount could go up or down, but I wouldn’t expect it to be less than two point five or more than four point seven-ish.  I wouldn’t need but maybe five days tops, and I can come during the day if that works better for your schedule.”

“You get this gone in two days, and I’ll take one mil.”

My whole body jerks back as if I had been slapped, staring at him like he was absolutely insane. 

“That’s absolutely insane,” I tell him, voicing my thoughts.

“No, that’s me not giving a shit and wanting it gone so I can get out of this place and sell it and all this shit some hand with care placed around each room.  Woulda left this shit in and sold it with the house, but for some reason I’ll never understand, you’re here, and I still just want it gone.  You don’t need five days when I’m taking a two mil hit, babe.  That would waste your time and mine, and I’m not a huge fan of wasting my time.  Way I see it, you win, and I get a cold mil for some shit I didn’t buy nor care about.  So you get this shit outta here, and all I need is that.”

“Thorn, I can’t in good conscience accept that.”

“Then dirty that conscience up and laugh your tight little ass all the way to the bank.  Don’t give a shit as long as it’s gone, and I don’t have to do anything to make it that way.”

“This is insanity.”

“Insanity would be tossing it all at the Goodwill drop-off.  I’m making money.  You’re making money.  Only thing sweeter than making money is doing it while I’m getting my cock wet, and babe, that only happens when my stock rises at the same time my cock does.”  He steps closer, and I back into the island, my chest burning as I hold my breath.  “Course, never had four mil worth of shit to sell to a woman who makes my cock rise without even trying.”

“Thorn,” I whisper, placing my hand against his hard chest with the intention of pushing him back.  Only, the second his warmth burns through his shirt and hits my skin, I can’t move an inch.

“Ari,” he mocks, his eyes bright.

“I, uh, the paperwork …” I close my eyes and focus on my breaths and the words my mouth can’t seem to form.  When my heart slows enough that I won’t die of a heart attack right here in heaven, I look back up at him.  “You’re breaking my brain, Thorn.  Please step back so I can think clearly without my body trying to die on me.”

The corners of his eyes crinkle as he continues to gaze down at me, but he does step back.  My arm falling down to my side.

“As much as I wish I could have this room cleared out for you tomorrow, it will take at least until late Monday.  I’ll need to meet with you beforehand to have some legal paperwork signed for the sale due to its size.  But my lawyer is an old family friend, so I can have that by tomorrow around dinnertime, if you wouldn’t mind meeting me to take care of that.  I won’t be able to get the cashier’s check until after those are signed, so late Monday is the best I can offer you.”

“Want this shit gone, but it’s hardly a hardship to wait a few more days if that means I’ve got a few more opportunities to try to make you want me as much as you want this shit around you,” he says, his deep voice thick with desire.

“Good heavens, you don’t stop, do you?”

“Not unless you beg, babe.”

“I think it’s best we went back to keeping things professional, Mr. Evans.”

This time, it isn’t a ghost of a smile on his lips.  Oh, no.  Not this time.  If I thought he was handsome before this moment, I was a fool.  Because Thorn Evans giving you his full, unhindered smile and a gaze so thick with unspoken promise as it washes over you and creates a fire of the desire you already felt … well, that expression on him turns him from sinfully hot to heart-stopping and irresistible instantly.

“It would take me five minutes to get you to beg me for it, Ms. Daniels.  Admit it.”

Offended at the thought that I’m easy, I narrow my eyes.  Finally.  At least anger is an emotion I’ve had plenty of practice dealing with.  “I’m not sure what kind of women you’re used to, but I promise you, I am not that type of woman.”

“Maybe three,” he oddly says, ignoring me.

“Three, what?” I snap.

“Minutes, sweetness.  Three minutes and you’d be begging me for all this shit and my cock.”

My mouth flounders, and I gasp.

“Though, pretty sure I could get that in less than a minute and get you doin’ all the work while I watch from my back.”

My arm is up, palm cracking against his cheek before I have the ability to do anything to stop it.  “I think we’re done here.”

I walk around him, ready to find my way out and let him find someone else to take all of this off his hands even if it kills a little part of my lux loving soul.  When his hand curls around my bicep—not painfully, but firm enough to make me stop—I look over my shoulder with a frown.  For a man who was just slapped, he looks almost gleeful.

“One minute, Ari.  Give me a minute and if you aren’t ready to beg me for it, when those sixty seconds are up, you can take this shit and not give me a penny for it.”

Walk away, Ari.  Walk.  Away.  No amount of money is worth being some man’s whore.

Spinning away from his hold, I jerk my arm free and step toward him with a roll up to my toes, getting my face as close to his as I can.  His scent overwhelms me. The subtle notes of his cologne fog my rational thought, making me drunk with need, and I sway slightly before correcting myself.

“Thirty seconds,”  I retort, my jaw tight with stubbornness.  

I’m not sure who I shocked more—him or me.  I have my answer, though, when I see victory flash in his eyes.  Oh, my God … what have I done?

“You’re on,” he agrees, his eyes alight with the promise backed up by his devilish grin.

I nod, incapable of anything more.  I stand there in shocked silence as he takes my phone, his thick fingers moving quickly over the screen.  I vaguely hear a chime from his pocket and before I can so much as blink, he’s handing me my things.

“Tomorrow, I’ll text you.  Paperwork first, then you beg.”

I gulp, jerk my head in what I hope resembles a nod of agreement, and then … I flee.

Review – Misadventures With A Rock Star by Helen Hardt

5 out of 5 stars

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

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

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

#MisadventureswithaRockStar

Synopsis:

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

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

Review – I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A MUST-READ ROMANCE!

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

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

Turns out it’s neither.

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

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

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

Review – Memphis by Ginger Scott

28056735_10215691846235030_492785339747001050_n

Memphis by Ginger Scott

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars


Lost souls find each other sometimes.

I’ve fallen in love with another fighter and it’s all because of new-to-me author, Ginger Scott! A master storyteller, Ginger Scott immediately ensnared me in her trap of words. Like a fighter on the mat, I was hit hard. MEMPHIS, this tender and thrilling tale, UNEQUIVOCALLY OWNED ME and was UTTERLY UNPUTDOWNABLE! I was CONSUMED by Memphis from the very first page, as every word made my HEART FLUTTER and my SOUL STIR.

Memphis, the man, oh where do I start?!? This man is gorgeous inside and out. Fire-hot and fearless. Memphis is so sexy … so stunning … so sweet … so WOW!!! I was under his spell. Memphis had my heart from the start. Memphis, the hero, is the ultimate champion of the heart … my heart … PURE PERFECTION!

There’s just something about the way he moves…like a ghost. Like a fighter.

Liz is as beautiful as she is bold but oh is she broken. I took a while to warm up to this sassy and closed-off heroine, but grew to adore her. Liz has been burned, her flame extinguished. Until Memphis ignites a fire that can’t help but burn between them…

I feel like the gladiator protecting the maiden from a storm.

The chemistry between this broken beauty and fierce fighter is COMBUSTIBLE. I felt their pull through the pages. This slow burn that enflamed.

”I want you because when I touch you I feel it in every square inch of my body.”

Electrifying, emotionally complex, and heart-hitting, Memphis is a CHAMPION of a read. This fighter romance is full of FIRE and FEELS but it’s so much MORE!!! Ginger Scott flawlessly turns hope to hopeless and merely existing or living to life in a story threaded by unexpected but unconditional love. Memphis is the story of lost souls finding each other. Memphis is blood that becomes bad and friends who become family. Memphis is survival after shattering. Memphis is EVERYTHING!!!

”I don’t think anyone else will fit you like I do, Liv … I know it because I don’t think anyone else will fit me either.”

Memphis BURNS with a PARALYZING INTENSITY felt EVERYWHERE! EMOTIONALLY EXPLOSIVE and BLISTERINGLY BEAUTIFUL, Memphis pounded its way into my heart. This raw, rush of a read made me FEEL SO ALIVE! I LOVED this fighter romance! Imperfectly perfect, Memphis was perfect for me.

I’ll fight for us.

4.5 heartwarming and heart-pounding ‘champion’ stars

synopsis.jpg

My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved. 

The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict.

I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney. 

At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle until his very last breath. 

He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and I’ve lost so much of myself already.

But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and trust stripped away from life. 

I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.

Review – Unraveled by Helen Hardt

5 out of 5 stars

Wow. One of the best series I’ve ever read has come to an end. I don’t want to say goodbye. Helen has me addicted, and I may just need rehab to get over the withdrawals. Action packed, high intensity thrills is what this book is all about. I thought my heart was going to stop from going into overdrive for so long.

The suspense will have you on the edge of your seat as everything comes to a head. I admit, Helen kept blowing my mind at every turn. I never knew what was going to happen next. I love when books are unpredictable. The twists and turns are around every corner which prevents me from going into any detail of the book. I would never ruin such perfection for anyone. It will be super hard saying goodbye, but I know whatever Helen gives us next will be equally as amazing.

Review – Twisted by Helen Hardt 



 6 stars
Holy mother of Steele books!  This book takes the cake, hands down. Before I could grasp what had just happened even more twisted information pops up. Helen really worked overtime to keep our minds in overdrive following this one. 
I must apologize to Talon. I loved Talon from the start and never in my wildest dreams thought he could be replaced, but Ryan certainly pulled it off. I am going to have naughty dreams of all the filthy things Ryan can do to me, not to mention that alpha hot head streak that can’t be contained. Do not mess with someone he loves if you value your life. That’s all I’m saying. 
This book really starts to get further in depth of uncovering all of the secrets that were being slowly unraveled. I have to say,  this book seriously turned uo the intensity factor about 10 notches. It’s  on now. The end is in sight. Now we have to cross our fingers and toes that everyone makes it out unscathed. 
This is hands down the best book Helen has released yet. I never thought I would say those words because of the strong affinity I developed for Talon from the start but you don’t even know the half of it. Kudos to Helen for continually delivering a series that only exponentially gets better and better. Unraveled can’t get here soon enough. I can’t wait to see how this all plays out.

Review – Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first met Amie and Lex in Shacking Up and again in Eye Candy (Hello, Gladiator Lex), I knew their story was one I NEEDED like air to breathe. The initial flirting, playful banter, and sexual tension was an instant HIGH. After a small hit, I had to have MORE. I also had to know if justice would be served to the A-man with the small pencil down below. Spoiler alert: The sweet justice dished out to the anti-hero A, was the icing on the cake.

Like little brother, Bane, Lexington ‘Lex’ is ALL ALPHA. A god. He so smokin’ hot and with a big heart!!! This melt-worthy man OWNS ME for life. Just YES!!! Lex is HERO PERFECTION, a lethal mix of hotness and heart that will have you wishing for a hook up with him.

”It’s okay, baby, I get it. know I’m irresistible.”

Amie is back and not the controlled and refined woman she was before. She is a full-on firecracker ready to take back her life! I ADORED her!!! Amie is a sassy and smart beauty, a heroine you’d want as your bestie.

Still nursing wounds from a wreck of a relationship, Amie is out to rediscover herself, recover the old Amie who valued herself most and lived, laughed, and had fun.

One night and it could have been Lex. It always should have been Lex. It should have been the man made for Amie. 

I missed my chance before but maybe now I can be part of what helps put her back together.

Collision after collision has Lex and Amie together again. It’s as if a force is pulling them, a strong tide. A force of fate.

”I can only behave myself for so long.”

Maybe I don’t want you to behave.”

This hero and heroine EXPLODE TOGETHER!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE. Their passion is PALPABLE. Their union is UNSTOPPABLE!!! I felt their chemistry steam off the pages, a blaze of fire that burnt me everywhere!!! 

I crush my mouth to Amelie’s…It’s not a very coordinated kiss. It’s messy and teeth-clashing. It’s want and need. It’s possession. Hers and mine.

Together, Lex and Amie were so MAGICAL!!!This hero and heroine are fused by FATE, making their story even more special. These two were created for each other. I loved them both so much!

”Tell me you don’t feel this pull.”

Hooking Up is heart-stopping sexy meets saucy and sweet—a romance you’ll want to hook up with NOW!! This story is a sensual SLOW BURN that blazed though me everywhere! I was ENRAPTURED!!! Hooking Up HIJACKED ME from the start, quickly becoming a HIGH, one I felt the whole time reading. I LOVED this romance fused by fate, bathed in blazing heat, and felt with love. I felt the POWERFUL PULL of Hooking Up so hard, a story I couldn’t put down. Hooking Up is ALL THAT and MORE!!!

💋💋💋💋💋 hot and heartfelt ‘Sexy Lexy’ kisses

synopsis.jpg

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

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!

Review – Drunk On You by Harper Sloan

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]

Review graphic

C’est un des livres plus chauds de l’année et donc la peine d’attendre! Oh, mon cœur!

Shane Kingston has to be one of Harper’s sexiest leading men. Stripper turned business partner, occassional bartender and spotlight dancer. The man is seriously alpha, a bit of a control freak and what he wants – has always wanted – is Nikki Clark. Only two things stand in the way, or rather two people. That would be their exes Lacey and Seth. These two just can’t seem to let go more than a year after the break ups. Nikki is ready to move on, let loose and learn to have fun. Shane wants to move on, let loose and have fun with Nikki. They’ve always been attracted to each other. Now they don’t have to deny what they want. After one SERIOUSLY sexy dance at Dirty Dog, these two make a deal that’s mutually beneficial and kills two birds with one stone. They get rid of their exes and thoroughly enjoy each others company. A fake relationship for the public but can that really work in private when these two have such a long standing burning attraction?

It’s hard not to love Nikki. She’s a dedicated teacher and friend. She’s beloved by all the Corps Security families and is seen as one of their own. When she gives, she gives everything. There’s no way that Shane can resist his draw to Nikki with her strong independent streak and her need to please and care for those that she loves. She is the perfect submissive compliment to his dominant nature. After a horrible breakup, Nikki wants to enjoy her life and part of that is indulging her needs with the dirty French talking, sexy hips wiggling bartender. It doesn’t take long for these two to see that what they have isn’t just a simply friendship with some great times burning the sheets. This is more and so much deeper than either expected with a lot more to lose. Suddenly what’s supposed to be fake becomes very real.

Insecurities arise and miscommunication takes its toll not only on Shane and Nikki but on their other friendships as well. Shane is a deep well of secrets and past hurts that demand that he have total control in all areas of his life. But what happens when once, just once, he lets it all go? Can Nikki give everything to Shane and finally have all that she’s ever wanted?

I finished Drunk On You with a smile on my face and immediately flipped back to read the ending another time. Then I flipped back to other scenes in the book that made me want more of Shane’s dominating personality and Nikki’s need for him. This trip to Hope Town has been my favorite so far. This book has a mix of everything that has made Harper one of my favorite go to authors – steamy sexy scenes, sweet heartwarming romance, a leading man that wears his alpha so well and a leading woman who I just had to cheer on as she fought for and then got her man. It was amazing to have Nate and Ember back as they supported their best friends in finding their own happy ending. Let’s not forget Shane’s little sister, Liberty. She’s a female version of her brother, strong willed and has deep hurts. I’m so excited to read her story on my next visit to Hope Town.

We may have been disappointed that we didn’t get this book earlier this year, but it was definitely worth the wait. My hat’s off to Harper and the absolutely divine Shane Kingston! Don’t miss this one. FANTASTIC, Harper!

Five Starboy and Mon Colibri Stars!

It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.

One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.

He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
