Review – He Loves Me Knot by RC Boldt 

6 out of 5 stars 

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

 Sometimes love needs a second chance…

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

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

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

He loves me…KNOT.



  RC Boldt is the wife of Mr. Boldt, a retired Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of many students. She currently lives on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing karaoke. If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.

Review – American King by Sierra Simone

American King AMAZON

Review graphic

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bravo, Sierra.

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

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

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Review – How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney


The Learning Hours by Sara Ney

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

The old adage states: “Never judge a book by its cover.” Often a cover makes you stop but the words make you stay. If you literally eye-stalk the three book covers from Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series, you’ll think they are hot, sexy stories that may make you blush. Once you meet Sara Ney’s words inside, you’ll be completely WOWED!!! How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is as stunning as its cover, a book even more beautiful inside than out, a book that BROKE ME in the best way!

I was CAPTIVATED and so WHOLEHEARTEDLY CONSUMED from the start, as Sara Ney’s words drew me in like a moth to a flame. I. COULD. NOT. PUT. THIS. SPELLBINDING STORY. DOWN!!! How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours was my drug, and I could not get a big enough hit of this heady fix. The push and pull made me BREATHLESS! I felt the RUSH of this romance … so raw … so relentless … so WOW!!! 

I love a good challenge, and he’s giving me one whether he intends to or not.

This Douchebag is DIFFERENT than the rest. How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is UNIQUE with a powerful plot that will penetrate your heart from the start. You’ll instantly fall in love with the beautifully broken hero, one you’ll want to hug so hard. You’ll love the gorgeous and spirited heroine too but it may take longer to warm up to her as she will have to win you over first. You’ll love every piece of this POWERFUL TALE.


How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours started out slow but a burn built that beckoned me right into the flames as my heart caught fire, a slow burn seeping into my soul. This SLOW BURN bleeds angst! The sexual tension is TOTAL INTOXICATION!!! I was so IMMERSED with this hero and heroine that I felt their frustration too, and it just made me crave more…all the delicious angst! 

I slowly slide my skin across his. Flesh to flesh. My pulse quickens at the contact. Our eyes connect; I know he feels it too.

This hero and heroine are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry hot and heady! I felt their palpable connection. I felt the sensuality smoke through me. I FELT IT ALL!!!

“You should see yourself,” she whispers on a whimper. “You’re gorgeous.”

And in this moment, I believe her. I have to.

These words?!? They penetrated me like a knife, twisting and turning around my heart. I SWOONED and SHATTERED!!! This hero tore my heart apart—this broken beauty—and my heart hurt like his. I LOVED this perfectly imperfect man!!! I FELL so hard for both the beautifully broken hero, and the stunningly gorgeous and confident heroine. 

I’m not out of his league; he’s out of mine.



I LOST MYSELF in this last series book, How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours, vanishing into this life-altering story—UTTERLY SPELLBOUND—as it seized every part of me: body, heart, and soul. This love story is an ALL-CONSUMING CLINGER that clung to my heart so hard; I could not and did not want to let go!!! I don’t want to let this humorous, heated, and heartfelt series go! Oh how I already miss these Douchebags, all so different but all endearing!!! These characters centered around a college wrestling team still feel like family and I’m not ready to bid them farewell.

How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is so HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! Beauty is found best from within and this book BLEEDS BEAUTY in a love story that is incredible, inspirational, and PERFECTLY IMPERFECT. Fierce, flawed, and feel-worthy, this fractured fairytale of a romance is ALL THE THINGS!!! ALL THE FEELS!!! ALL THE LOVE!!! ALL THE STARS for a story that SLAYS ALL OF THE SOUL!!!

How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours is another top 2017 read!!! 

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 but worth all the soul-slaying stars

He’s not a douchebag; but that doesn’t stop his friends from turning him into one.


So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?
Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.


One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up–they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.


He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair.

He’s slouching, hunched over his table.

Defeated. Tired.

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.
Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading.


“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air.

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument.

Twenty feet.





No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance.

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…

Review – Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland.

Mannnn, why must Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland be SO FREAKING GOOD? I mean I’m legit running out of good things to say about these two and the magic they write together! Like, this book, features a HOT British Dr who is pure SIN & SWOON! I can’t even!!

In all honesty, I am actually stuck on what to say. I just want to shout that this book was amazing and beautiful and perfect and awesome and everything. Because it was. It was all that and more.  

The writing was seamless. The story line, perfection. The connection of the characters was instant and intense and so believable. I was addicted from beginning to end and devoured it in one sitting. 

Penelope & Vi are unstoppable! I adore them together and apart. Never stop writing ladies, NEVER. #thisbritlovedyourbrit ❤

From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 

No questions asked. 

Think about it. 

Or don’t. 

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

Review – Breathing You In by S. Moose

Breathing You In cover

BBB Keeana review

Heart shattering, beautiful, brilliant and gut-wrenching! This story has stolen both my heart and soul. I could not put it down. S. Moose just has a way with words. Her words are so beautiful and masterful!!

This book OWNED ME. I could not put it down. It had me spellbound! S. Moose’s words are beautiful and shattering. This book will have you on a rollercoaster of emotions. It will rock you. Keep some tissues handy… you will need them, trust me! Get those one-click fingers ready! This book will tear you apart and then maybe put you back together!  You have to read to find out!

Review graphic

This incredible story is one that shook me. It is a story about regret, loss and a grief that encompasses every aspect of life and steals its joy. This is a story of a man who many of thought is a total jerk, a lost cause. Some have even called him a cheater. Reading Logan’s story and then re-reading in parts, I see Logan as a man who is deeply devastated, riddled with guilt and trying everything he can to cope. Even if that means he beds and leaves, drinks to dangerous levels, treats everyone around him with contempt and keeps people at a safe distance.

Grief has no rhyme or reason. It has no timetable. There’s no manual to follow to ease the unbearable sadness. This story is Logan’s way to speak his pain. His way is destructive, cruel to those who care for him. Shannon was the love of his life and their parting was not pleasant. Meeting Hannah finally is a step toward healing his heart and mending his soul. After two years, he finally feels something and in Hannah, he finds a kindred spirit because she has been grieving, too.

Hannah has suffered the loss of not only her brother but the loss of a relationship that she felt would help her move forward. Graduating from college, moving away from a home filled with memories and starting over is just what she needs. Meeting Logan and connecting with him changes her life in such a short period of time. She accepts that Logan is in pain, that he’s not ready to move on but she knows that she wants him and that she wants to be a part of his life. Still, how much can one person take when you’re constantly being pushed away? Still Hannah is a fighter.

Breathing You In is filled with such emotionally riveting moments, powerful realizations and steamy chemistry. When I read the last pages, I had tears running down my face. S gave readers so much in this story, from soaring highs to heartbreaking lows. I saw Logan’s triumphs as well as his setbacks. I felt Hannah’s confusion and her love for this tremendously wonderful but complicated man.

I loved every single moment. Well done, S!


Breathing You In Teaser 1


Tragedy brings them together.

Life may tear them apart.

Two years after losing my wife and unborn child, I’m at rock bottom. I blanket my life with addictions to ease the pain.

Until life takes me on a detour, guiding me for a path I never expected.

Meeting Hannah Harris and those enticing deep emerald eyes makes the darkness shimmer and the oxygen in my lungs flow whenever she’s near me. When I’m with her, everything falls easily into place and she relieves the pain, making it easy to live. I’m clinging on to her for solace and salvation.

But how do I find a way to breathe in a new life and love while learning how to exhale the agony of my past?

Review – Play On by Samantha Young


Play On Cover

Play On by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here I sit with my head still stuck in the clouds, stuck in a story that stole me away to another world. I’m still floating on Cloud Nine. Tears are still etched in my eyes, a soulful mix of swoon and sorrow. The feels won’t stop flowing. My soul is still stripped bare from this book. My heart still beats for a book that lifted me up from my everyday life and thrust me to another life across the pond…another world in Scotland. I’m still basking in the beauty of a book that held my heart hostage: PLAY ON by Samantha Young, a romance perfectly synched to my soul with a constant beat of the heart.

Samantha Young’s writing SUCKS YOU IN and makes you stay. Play On captivated me from the start. I was UNEQUIVOCALLY CONSUMED by this romance that penetrated every part of me. Play On is an MESMERIZING and MEANINGFUL MASTERPIECE, one I SAVORED like a fine wine, cherishing each drop. Play On, so HEARTFELT and HEADY, was MY DRUG and I was thoroughly ADDICTED. I WAS ALL IN…body…heart…soul…EVERYTHING!!!

Samantha Young crafted a PERFECTLY IMPERFECT hero and heroine with strength in spades, characters with whom I fell in fast love and ones that instantly claimed my heart. Both Nora and Aidan are beautiful inside out. This hero and heroine are beautifully broken but so perfect for each other, two broken halves that make a whole, so raw that they felt real.

Beautiful Nora O’Brien at a young age has had a tough life…to hell and back. A warrior woman, Nora forges on, gaining strength after each battle life bestows upon her. I greatly adored and admired this heroine!

Nora has been burned and is not looking for a relationship, but sometimes fate has other plans.

And I saw it. What I’d been trying so hard not to see. I saw that he wanted me … like I wanted him.

Aidan Lennox is tall, dark, and utterly handsome. He is a player, a music producer who travels the world with no time for relationships. I LOVED this complex alpha! 

“What am I to you?”

“You? You’re everything.”

Play On Teaser 2

These words were EVERYTHING, so beautiful that I melted all over inside. I SWOONED so hard! I felt ALL OF THE FEELS!

Nora and Aidan don’t make sense together but like a moth drawn to a flame, they are drawn to one another. Two broken souls searching for solace. Two broken hearts longing to become whole. Two beautiful souls connected by feels and fate.

“Why are you fighting this when you want it?”

“Because—” His mouth crushed down on mine, silencing me.

The chemistry between Nora and Aidan is combustible and unstoppable! I felt the hero and heroines’ pull through the pages, a magnetic attraction. 

“I don’t have stubble burn on my cheeks, do I?”

“No. But you’ll most certainly have it between your thighs by tomorrow morning.”

HOLY HOT!!! Aidan’s magical mouth with heated words made me wanton! I was on FIRE along with the hero and heroine! 

Aidan Lennox was going to leave me in pieces.

Play On Teaser

Play On POSSESSED every part of me, penetrating straight to the heart! The push and pull…the angst that bled had me ON EDGE—so ENTANGLED IN EMOTIONS—where I felt everything this hero and heroine did. I felt the unparalleled intensity and intimacy of this romance with the quick rise and fall of my chest, the way my breaths bated, my pulse pounded, and my heart beat out of its chest. 

“If you’re to be mine, I need you to be mine, because all of me is yours.”

Play On is a book that is HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! Play On’s powerful and poignant words SHREDDED MY SOUL—where I felt stripped bare—as my emotions belonged to this beautiful book from beginning to end. This love story woven in fate and feels struck me so hard as it held my fragile heart in its hands, shattering it to pieces, and then sewing it back together so many times. I BROKE IN THE BEST BEST WAY!

A union of the heart, mind, and soul, Play On is PERFECTION…Samantha Young’s best work yet!!! The beauty of Samantha Young’s writing shines through this book, so full of life, love, and loss. Play On is a love story but SO MUCH MORE; it’s a story of self-discovery, unbridled strength, fate, and hard fought and forever love.

PLAY ON…oh did this STUNNING STORY play me like a beautiful harp—a MOVING MELODY that moved me so much that I still feel every word…every character…every sensation…EVERYTHING!!! This is a love story with so much heart and soul that you’re guaranteed to feel ALL OF THE FEELS!!! I dare you not to feel every word as this romance—so POWERFUL and POIGNANT—plays you in the best way. I FELL IN LOVE…SO MUCH LOVE…OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!💜

“Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are the messiest.”

Nora O’Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret.

Until Aidan Lennox entered her life.

Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow, in each other, they found the light they were looking for, the laughter and the passion—the strength to play on despite their past losses.

But when life dealt Aidan another unlucky hand, instead of reaching for her he disappeared. The agonizing loss of him inspired something within Nora. It fired her spirit— the anger and hurt pushing her forward to take control and reach for her dreams.

Finally pursuing a career on stage while she put herself through college, everything is how Nora wants it. She’s avoiding heartbreak and concentrating on her goals.

Sounds easy but it’s not. Because Aidan is back. And for some reason he hates Nora.

He’s determined to be at war with her. And she has absolutely no idea why.

Review – Long For Me by Stacey Lynn 

HOLY HOTNESS!!!  Stacey has written the hottest story yet.  While it does contain BDSM,  there is so much more to the story. I guarantee you won’t put it down until you finish. 
Rebecca grew up around abuse.  Her father user to beat her mother and then her.  This makes her hold back in relationships with men.  She simply can’t trust  that they will not hurt her. 
Bennett is not only her boss,  but soon to be dom.  After pleading from her best friend Miranda,  to join her and her man at Luminous for new year’s Eve .  She has no problem putting her foot down to refuse.  In the end,  she gives in but never expected to see her boss on stage doing a scene.  He makes eye contact across the room,  and the rest is history. 
Watching these two go through the ups and downs of this relationship was completely mesmerizing.  This definitely a must read for steam and emotions. 

Long for Me by Stacey Lynn
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: September 4th, 2017


My boss already controls my days; do I want to give him my nights, as well? 


I’ve seen what happens when you give everything to a man. That’s not what I want. I won’t have my heart crushed in anyone’s fist.

Then he changed everything.

Him. Bennett Ashby. My boss.

Seeing him at Luminous, dressed in leather pants and wielding a whip…

Do I crave this? 

My mind says no, but my body is starting to have very different ideas.



I knew Rebecca Morales would be the perfect assistant. That’s why I hired her.  

I didn’t know that working with her every day would lead to temptation—to own her, to possess her.

When she walked into Luminous, I knew I was screwed. Dipping your pen in the company ink is never smart, but we both agreed what happens at the club stays there.

One night and then it’s back to business tomorrow.

Except I don’t want just one night with Rebecca. I want them all.

Review – Drumline by Stacy Kestwick

Drumline Cover

Drumline by Stacy Kestwick

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

If there is one constant in reading for me it’s the potent and pleasurable high, the giddy delight I get when meeting a new or new-to-me author’s words. That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I just popped my Stacy Kestwick book cherry with Drumline that was more of an explosion because HOLY HOT and HEADY READ!!!

I rarely rate a new-to-me-author the highest for my blog—six stars—but HOLY WOW!!! Drumline was THAT GOOD! From the very first page, Drumline was my DRUG and I could not inhale this tale fast enough. Amusing. Arousing. Angst-filled. Addicting. Awe-inspiring. I was so CAPTIVATED and CONSUMED that I devoured—more like demolished—this romance in one night!!! After just a few pages, I six-starred this spellbinding story. One new-to-me-author … one book … one night … one sitting … and my world was ROCKED!!! Where has Stacy Kestwick been all of my book-loving life?!?

Oh where do I start with the hero and heroine who both stole my heart from the start?!? I adored and admired this cast of strong and captivating characters who felt real, characters Stacy Kestwick flawlessly brought to life. The hero and heroine are absolute PERFECTION together!

Laird. First let’s take a moment of silence in appreciation of that SUPER SEXY, Viking-God-like name: LAIRD. JUST hot…SO HOT!!! Green eyes, tall, cut, stubble, AND ink?!? SOLD to the blonde with matching green eyes licking her lips! (That’s me.) Laird had me at green eyes, the color of my own that I happen to love! This captain of the college Drumline team is not only melt-worthy in looks but his flirty and dirty-talking demeanor seals the deal! Just toss my ovaries in Laird’s lap now please!

Stacy Kestwick has written the perfect hero in Laird: a tall, inked, muscular, sweet, sexy, swoony, and dirty-talking alpha who is hot with a huge heart. PURE PERFECTION. Just YES!!!

One lucky gal has Laird saluting everywhere in attention: Reese. Beautiful, tall, and new recruit to Laird’s Drumline team, Reese, is totally off-limits. 

I’d already beaten thirteen guys at a game they didn’t think I could play.

Bold and badass to the bone, I was in awe of this tough heroine. Reese is winning at life!!! 

“Give me the words, Reese. Tell me off the field, I can have you. That you’re mine.”

“I can’t.”

“Can’t? Or won’t?”

The electricity that surges through Laird and Reese was INSTANTANEOUS, an intense attraction at first sight. Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE, an inferno waiting to ignite. The sexual tension is PALPABLE. Like a teacher to a student, they are off limits. 

“When I touch you — and make no mistake, it’s a when, not an if — you’re going to remember every fucking second of it. And it’ll be because you want it as badly as I do.”

Holy HOTNESS! Laird’s deliciously dirty mouth was a shot of sexy straight to my core. This ALL ALPHA OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME!!!

His mouth needed to come with a warning label. Danger. Highly flammable. But it was too late. I’d had a taste and I liked the burn.

Oh did Laird make me BURN everywhere! I was on fire, blazing at the heat that poured from this hot hero’s mouth. 

“I could eat you all day, every day and never get tired of your taste.”

HOLY HOT AGAIN! My e-reader was on FIRE and so was I!!! I could not take anymore of Laird’s panty-melting mouth! My involuntary thigh clenches were out of control. This sexy and swoony hero, Laird, RUINED ME!!!

“Tell me you don’t want this.”

Hot breath fanned over my cheek.

“Tell me your heart isn’t racing as fast as mine.”

“Tell me to stop,” he dared me.

Drumline Teaser 5

Don’t stop! Oh wait…I’m not the heroine here but I wanted to be! I wanted to climb into the story and climb on…well…I better stop. Let’s just say: If Laird were real, he would have so been my hall pass. 

At least if we’d crashed and burned, I’d have given it my all, no regrets.

I did not expect this college romance to WOW ME SO MUCH! Drumline is as SEXY as it is SIGNIFICANT. This romance is full of smolder, but the tender and tearful moments touched my heart the most. My heart shattered and soared, pounding through my chest like the beat of the Drumline. In a love story that is the sweetest of SURPRISES, Drumline simply BLEW ME AWAY!!!

Stacy Kestwick is my new author hero!!! She’s a super star writer who possesses the power to write the perfect humor-heat-heart trio. This author’s storytelling skills are SUPERB! Drumline‘s writing is perfection, a story I sank into like a warm bath … INTENSE, INVITING and INTOXICATING. With its laugh-out-loud humor, off-the-charts chemistry, passion, smolder, strength, sorrow, sweetness, swoon, soul, and sooo much heart…Drumline has everything you’d want in a romance…EVERYTHING!!!

Drumline is FIRE fused with FEELS!!! 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 feel so much. I FELT this love story stream through me, sweeping me away. I FELT the passion mixed with promise for this heart-worthy hero and heroine. I FELT every emotion: heartbreak, happiness, humor, and hope. I FELT IT ALL … EVERYTHING!!!

Heart-stopping sexy, pulse-pounding, and passionately poignant, Drumline is a romance that stays with you … simply UNFORGETTABLE and UNPUTDOWNABLE. I LOVED EVERYTHING about DRUMLINE!!! Fresh … fierce … and ALL THE FEELS! Drumline is all that and MORE!!! I need an encore now! ❤️

Traditions are important. Especially in the South.
College football. Rivalries. Tailgating. Halftime shows.
Some things just don’t change.
Until Reese Holland shows up with her long legs and no-bull***t attitude to audition for the prestigious all-male Rodner University snare line.
It doesn’t matter how much hazing she has to endure from Laird Bronson, with his narrowed green eyes and arrogant smirk. She wants that damn spot, and she’s more than good enough to earn it.
She expects there to be tension. Even friction.
But not sparks hot enough to burn the entire campus down.


The door opened. Laird’s scent reached me first, soap and bad ideas and fairy tales all mixed up in a pheromone cloud I was powerless to resist.

“I shouldn’t be here.” My voice sounded weak and a bit defensive as I looked at his neck, his chin, his nose—anywhere but his kryptonite green eyes.

“Wrong. This is exactly where you should be.”

His hand closed around my wrist and he pulled me out of the endless Alabama heat into the coolness of his townhouse, then crowded me against the wall. Before I could protest, before I could even take a breath, his mouth was on mine, desperate, hungry, and so damn hot. Rational thought fled my mind. My knees buckled and I clutched his shirt, letting his arm around my back support my weight.

“Right here. With me. In my arms.” The husky words hit me like bullets.

His tongue licked the seam of my lips, then plunged inside. A greedy noise spilled from my throat. I’d never get enough of the way he tasted, of the way my skin seemed to hum whenever he touched me. His other arm fell to my thigh, tugging my leg up to wrap around his waist as he arched my back. That dirty mouth of his wasn’t the only thing pressing against me.

I raised my arms to his wide shoulders, feeling his muscles bunch under my palms. My nails scratched along his scalp, and his answering groan had me shivering in wanton desire.

There was no spark, no slow build-up. This was an instant inferno of need.

“Laird.” I rubbed my cheek against his stubble, then tipped my head to the side as he trailed kisses down my neck. “We shouldn’t.”  It was my last attempt at logic, at sane reasoning.

“Says who?” His eyes bored into mine, snaring me in their frustrated heat. “You? You want this. I can feel how much you want it. Your nipples are already hard and begging, your mouth is swollen and pouting, and there’s no doubt in my mind, if I reached between those sweet thighs of yours right now, that you’d be wet and ready.”

He rocked his hips, his hard length obvious behind his zipper. “That’s just the start of what you do to me, Reese.”

Laird traced his fingers along my face, rubbing at the crease between my eyebrows with his thumb. “Tell me you don’t want to be here.”

Before I could open my mouth, he stopped me with a grunt and a sharp shake of his head. “No. Not whether you think you should be here, tell me you don’t want to be here. That you don’t want me to cook you dinner, and tell you how damn beautiful you look, and kiss you until you’ve been kissed every single way there is to kiss.”

Review – Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes you can’t merely read a book; you have to live it. I LIVED THROUGH Rebel by Rebecca Yarros. The last story in the phenomenal Renegades trio, Rebel is a romance you live…breath…feel…experience. Oh did I experience everything! I FELT Rebel race through me…every single word!

Rebel is a HEADY HIGH, one I FELT the moment I began reading. This book made me BREATHLESS!!!There is no other way to read this stirring story except to do a deep dive, so I sank in until I could only feel the words. I plunged ALL THE WAY INTO this thrilling and tender tale, and loved every minute!

I’ve never been a toe-in-the-water kind of girl. I was a dive-headfirst-and-see-what’s-at-the-bottom girl.

I lived and breathed these characters that came to life before my eyes.

Bold, brave, beautiful, and badass to the bone, Penna may be my favorite heroine yet! Rebel is her name and it fits her like a glove! Penna holds her own in extreme sports, rivaling men in sport, smarts, and sass. Rebel has lady balls the size of balloons and I bowed to her! She gives as good as she gets and then some! I ADORED and ADMIRED this heroine so much!

I’ve never given a shit about rules. They called me Rebel for a reason.

I was IN AWE of everything Rebel! She was my idol!

I don’t go soft and doe-eyed for boys because I worked too damn hard to get where I am to be a piece of ass for some guy on the circuit.

Rebel has never had a man catch her eye until she meets gorgeous Cruz in Vegas one night where their attraction was unstoppable. Cruz is a gorgeous alpha and the perfect man fiery enough to capture this rebel gal, Penna. They would be perfect together if they weren’t teacher and student…off limits in every way.

“You’re everything I can’t have. Don’t you get that?”

The sexual tension is high. The pull is too palpable, too strong to ignore. I loved this most delicious angst!

If all I got was this one time to kiss him, to feel like he was mine, then I was taking advantage off every second. I kissed him back with everything I had.

That kiss was hot…on fire! It spoke so many words. That kiss was possibly the last. That kiss was EVERYTHING!

She was a magnet and I was a compass, my north facing wherever she moved to.

I MELTED from these oh-so-romantic words. I SWOONED so hard! Sweet and sensual are a lethal combination, one that hit straight to my core.

I thought Pax’s book was IT for me in this series until I met Rebel. Rebel was my KRYPTONITE, my ADRENALINE, my EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION, my EVERYTHING!

Maybe it’s because it was the last book, the last Renegades romance.

Maybe it’s because the Renegades, this family, felt like my family too.

Maybe it’s because of Rebel, truly a badass heroine among the best of the best!

Maybe it’s because the Renegades made me LIVE, leaping off cliffs into the unknown in a story and series that felt like a HUGE HIGH that never left.

Maybe its because that as I lived through this story, I felt so much too.

No…not maybe at all…but YES!!! YES to all of these and more! An all-consuming, adrenaline-filled adventure meets forbidden romance, Rebel hits the heart and slays the soul. Hot, heart-pounding, heady, and utterly hypnotizing, Rebel is the highest of highs meets the lowest of lows. Rebecca Yarros has outdone herself in a riveting ex-soldier/ teacher and an extreme sports superstar/student romance that ROCKED MY WORLD!!!

Rebel is a RUSH OF FEELS! Pulse-pounding meets passion in one sensual super star of a story! I felt this tale take me. I felt the angst tug at my heart, pulling me under. I felt the bitter sting of rejection. I felt heartbreak. I felt hope. I felt happiness. I FELT EVERYTHING!!!

We’d always been a family—able to conquer every fear, land every trick, and generally do the impossible when we were together.

I’m not ready to release the Renegades, these extreme sports daredevils who were my family. I am sad to say goodbye. If I were Rebel, I’d demand that Rebecca Yarros give us more Renegades because I’ll never get enough of this high. This free-fall of feels felt real, and I’m not done falling and feeling.

“That’s why you have me—to show you the parts of yourself that you can no longer see.”

She’ll defy his every expectation.

She’s Penna Carstairs.

The Renegade they call Rebel.

FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year.

There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken,

No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.

She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas.

The woman I illegally BASE jumped for.

The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with.

But now I’m screwed.

Or rather…not screwed.

Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again.

I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus,

And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.

Toying with her 

Wow another amazingly perfect, gripping, emotional read from Prescott.
Toying with her really captures the length you will go to for the One you love, I’m talking the love that takes over your entire being, the love that consumes every part of you, the love that stays with you for an eternity.
Sterling and Roarkes story will having you laughing out loud and blushing your way through the pages. 
Sterling is stubborn,feisty and more than capable of looking after all her needs, well who wouldn’t be when you have sterlings job, but for Sterling there is something missing from her world and she’s about to realise just what that is.
Roarke is enough to melt your heart, but typical male and stubborn to a fault.
The story flowed at a pace that kept you utterly captivated from start to finish and although there are times you would think wow that’s moved quickly, allow your memory to go back to the beginning and look closely at what’s been written, a fabulous second chance, follow your heart and dreams romance. 
 Can’t wait to see what is next from Prescott lane. 

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible.  Yep, that’s right.  That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child.  It’s aptly named Woman on Top.  And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.


So I’m headed home to my Southern roots.  It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more.  But Rorke Weston has other plans for me.  Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.  


It’s been said you never forget your first.  For me, that’s definitely true.  No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.


He’s turned into quite a man.  Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long.  And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.


Rorke wants his chance.  The one we never had.  But that was a long time ago.  When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters.  Even ten years later, I feel a pull.  And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.  


Do second chances really happen?  Or is my heart simply toying with me?


I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now.  We don’t even have to move from this spot.  I can take her right up against the door.  My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach.  The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her.  She grinds right back.  

“Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her.


We never just had a kiss.  We went from kissing to sex in the same breath.  And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer.  I want that more.  I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling.  


I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me.  I’m going to make it damn near impossible.


Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck.  Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly.  She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment.  


“Rorke,” she begs breathlessly.


I know she’s used to being in control.  Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be.  Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure.  But that ends right now.  When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it.  When you want a kiss, I’m your man.  You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”
