Review – Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

Buried-Alive SMASHWORDS

Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If there is one constant in reading for me it’s 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 Stacey Marie Brown book cherry with BURIED ALIVE that was more of an explosion because HOLY HEADY, HOT, and HEART-HITTING READ!!! From the very first page, Buried Alive was my FIX and I could not get enough!!! Life was on hold as I. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down!

A broken hero and heroine drawn are together.

Broken sees broken.

His eyes drifted over my head, a scary blankness in his eyes. I recognized that expression. It was one I saw in the mirror every day. Vacant. Numb.

Darkness sees darkness.

”We both live in the darkness.”

Like sees like.

The longer I was around her, the lighter I became.

Rhys and Hannah are HERO AND HEROINE PERFECTION!!! Rhys is one hot, heartfelt, intense, dark, and super star snowboarder—the ULTIMATE ALPHA! Hannah is stunning and strong—a pillar of strength! Hannah and Rhys’ humorous and heated banter was INTOXICATING!!! I loved these kindred spirits so much who MELTED ME with their darkness mixed with light! These two imperfectly perfect and shattered souls made each other whole.

All I could do was hold on as he consumed me. Breathing me in whole.

Like a shard of glass, Buried Alive glitters and shines, then cuts deep. Humming with adrenaline-inducing action and paralyzing with emotional intensity, this story of two broken souls fused by fate will sear itself into your memory long after the last page. This story SLAYS demons and souls. This story is healing after heartbreak. This story is life and living. This story is ALL THE FEELS!!! THIS STORY IS EVERYTHING!!!

He was here to destroy me.

Amusing. Arousing. Adrenaline-filled. Addicting. Awe-inspiring. An electrifying and emotionally-rich roller coaster of a sports romance, Buried Alive is an ADRENALINE RUSH OF FEELS until the end!!! It twists and turns like pro snowboarder, Rhys, conquering the slopes. My feels were free-falling through this story. I felt every word I read in Buried Alive. This romance is HARD-FOUGHT LOVE at its best!!! Buried Alive is still BEGUILING ME!!! This heart-pounding and heartwarming romance still holds my heart.

”You made me feel alive again.”

The moment Hannah walks into his room, he knows something is different about her. Drawn to her, he can’t seem to stay away from the mysterious, guarded girl. They are two heartbroken souls who both understand the darkness.

Little does he know she lives in lies and carries secrets that will bring his universe to its knees and secrets that will bury them both alive.

Review – Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn 


 5 out of 5 stars

 What  a whirlwind adventure this book was. Both of the main characters had been facing hardship of a different kind, but that all changes the night Teagan rear ends Portland’s most eligible bachelor.  Neither knows at the time, but both of their lives are  about drastically change. 


Teagan gets laid off only to come home and did her boyfriend of 7 years banging a blonde in her own bed. She has nothing. She is now stuck in a car with all of her belongings, not knowing what to do next. Then fate answers for her when she rear ends Corbin.  Gee, what else could possibly go wrong. Or not??? 


Corbin has just found out that the land he wanted of his  grandmothers  has stipulations that he never saw coming. He must be married for 2 years before the property is his free and clear. Fate just so happens to drop Teagan in his life  by way of fender bender!  Lol. 


He thinks he has it all figured out. Get married as soon as possible  so he can get the divorce done and over, but fate may have other plans for the two who don’t trust so easily. What a great read. I highly recommend it. 


 Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: January 9th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.

 

Sterling: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.

 

Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Sterling Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.

  Prologue

Teagan

I stare at the man, the absolutely beautiful man, across the table from me, completely disbelieving what he’s just said.

I had to have misheard.

He couldn’t have just offered me what I think he did.

Perhaps when I slammed into the back of his Mercedes forty-five minutes ago I gave him a concussion. Maybe the accident gave me a concussion.

“Are you serious?” Propping my elbows on the table, I lean forward to hear him better. “You can’t be. We should get you to the hospital. I think when I rear-ended you it gave you a concussion. Are you sure you didn’t hit your head?”

Corbin Lane relaxes against his chair at our table at Le Chat Noir. His golden-brown hair shines, a bit wavy, long on top but still short enough not to cross the line from professional to hipster. His cornflower-blue eyes haven’t veered from my direction for the last hour.

A typical man would have yelled at me, threatened me with a lawsuit, demanded my insurance information, and returned to his day, doing whatever playboy billionaires do.

Not this guy. He asked for my insurance information, and when he saw the tears streaming down my cheeks, the clothes and boxes strewn all over my cramped backseat, he asked me if I was okay. Then he escorted me to this nearby restaurant, asked me a million questions, and then this . . .

This . . . proposition, as he called it.

“I’m not joking. I think this solves both of our problems.”

I drink the rest of my wine and set the glass aside. The alcohol has made me tipsy.

Corbin smiles again. I’ve seen that smile plastered on the gossip pages and on the news for the last five years, ever since I moved to Portland. So sexy he makes girls stupid, he’s an heir to the Lane Holdings fortune, a great-grandson of one of the Oregon Gold Rush families, and son of the CEO of Lane Holdings. When his father retires, Corbin is poised to run the multibillion-dollar company.

“I think you’re going to have to explain it to me again.”

“It’s simple, really. You need a place to live and I’m offering you one. You need time to find a new job, and I’m providing financially for you to do that. We can iron out the details later, but this needs to last at least two years.”

Two years. Two years of my life spent in close proximity to one of Time magazine’s top-ten sexiest and wealthiest bachelors in the world. Three years in a row.

Yeah, I’m a fangirl.

Shit.

Two more years of life wasted.

Although the money he’s offering will definitely help me set up my dream when it’s over.

“Listen, Corbin—”

“Consider it. Take all the time you need.”

“I’m still not sure I understand what you get out of it.”

Beautiful, luscious lips tip into a full-blown smile and I’m almost blinded by the brightness of his teeth. “Me? I get a wife.”

Review – Dirty Deeds by Stella Rhys

Dirty Deeds by Stella Rhys 

This year I promised myself that I would start reading some new authors, and in all honesty I’ve have had my eye on Stella for a while and thought NOW IS THE TIME I’M GOING IN. I mean after seeing that cover how could you NOT want to read this book! The cover is perfection and now that I’ve read the book, I realise it’s even more perfect! And so my first foray into Stella Rhys was Dirty Deeds and it will not be my last! 

From the very start this book was addicting. Hotter than hot. And just SO FREAKING GOOD! 

I think this is one of the hottest books I’ve read in a while. The connection and tension was HOT. The foreplay and build up was HOT. Everything was HOT. But this book also has lots of hidden depth, lots of emotion and feeling. I fell in love with Emmett. He was just ugh, a loveable, cocky, dirty, hot asshole with the sweetest, most caring side to him that made me swoon & melt. Just everything he did and does is just pure magic and sweet and sexy and just WOW. 

Aly was a great female character with sass and wit and passion. My only one problem with Aly was, I felt she was sometimes too in her head and so quick to blame Emmett. My feeling towards Aly may be stricter because of how much I loved Emmett. He clouded my vision. Stella writes her hero’s SO WELL. LOL.  

I am thrilled I picked Stella as my first new author of 2018. I cannot wait to read more of her work, I’ve even gone back and clicked some of her older work!

4.5 dirty but so, so good stars! 

Growing up, we hated each other.

Now, we’re f**kin’ roommates for the summer.

ALY
It’s been twelve years since I’ve seen him, but loathing Emmett Hoult still runs in my blood. Thanks to the hell he wreaked on my teenaged life, I’ve avoided the prick like the plague. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and after a fire destroys my apartment during the most important week of my life, I’m suddenly as desperate as they come.

Hence the roommate situation.

It’s his summer home. His family said he wouldn’t be around. They said I’d never run into him.

But oh, did I run into Emmett Hoult.

And in the worst way possible.

EMMETT
I didn’t expect to see her ever again, let alone the way that I did.

But now that she’s back in my life, I’m not screwing things up. She still hates me — I know that — but it won’t stop me from chasing the only two goals I’ve made for this summer.

Making things right.

And making her mine.

Review – Rocco by Sarah Castille 



 6 out of 6 stars but worth so much more

 7 stars
Seriously, can anyone write a better mafia book than Sarah Castille?  That would be a big fat no!!  This woman has mastered her craft. When I see a new book coming, I’m on pins and needles until it lands on my kindle. It’s really hard to pick a favorite out of Nico, Luca, or Rocco. It is a seriously close tie because they all are most beastly beautiful men that couldn’t love their women more. If you don’t read this story, you’re seriously missing out on one hell of a read. I don’t say that lightly. 
Rocco and Grace’s relationship goes back to childhood. Stolen moments that got more and more intimate as the years went on. When the unthinkable happened, Grace couldn’t handle it and ran. Now years later, she has run back into Rocco, the man of her dreams. The man that will forever own her heart. 
This doesn’t come without trouble. When I say trouble, I mean TROUBLE!!!  The chaos that ensues is insane. So much treachery and backstabbing. Forces that wouldn’t normally come together have no choice if they want to save them all. 
I finished this with tears of happiness and the fact that so much good and sweetness could come out of such a violent situation. Sarah has once again proven why she will forever be a must read author for me,  and she should be for you too!

Review – Jared’s Fulfillment by Riley Hart 



 When I read book 1,I loved it but felt like something was missing. After finishing book 2,I realize that it had to be that way because of the progression of Jared and Kieran’s relationship in book 2. You will finish with a sense of fulfillment. 
The way their relationship blossomed can only be described as beautiful. I know that not everyone can get into BDSM,  but this series was so much more than that. We got to watch two broken people heal with the help of each other. It didn’t matter which role they played in their relationship, they both brought out the best in each other. Watching them grow together was heartwarming. 
Riley really proved how diverse she is in writing a beautiful duet that is different from her norm. I hope that you all take a chance on this beautiful story and enjoy it as much as I did.

Kieran

My relationship with Jared has lasted too long. He’s mesmerizing, beautiful in his devotion, pure in his need. He reaches parts of me I thought no longer existed, places I’d never known were there. His submission is a gift. His cries of pleasure and pain call to the most primal parts of me. I want to inhale him, own him, mark him as mine. He’s my boy and I need to be his Daddy, but my fear holds me back. I’ll fail him like I’ve failed everyone else I’ve loved. Before that happens, I’ll walk away.

Jared

I’ve never known security, love, or true pleasure before Kieran. With every touch, every command, every second of blissful, torturous pain, my heart grows and my soul is at peace. He protects me, spoils me, gives me what I need. Still, in some ways, he’s closed off and won’t let me in. But Kieran’s given me strength. I’ve evolved, and won’t accept less than I deserve…and I won’t let Daddy accept less than he deserves, either.

It’s a delicate balance: give and take, pleasure and pain. Together we can break each other down to our purest forms and build each other up again. Kieran always says I’m stronger than I think, but I know that together we’re invincible…if only he’d believe me.

We have two choices: say goodbye or fight for what’s always been out of both our reaches…fulfillment.

Warning: Jared’s Fulfillment contains BDSM elements, domestic discipline, spanking, and daddy kink–without age play–between consenting adults. If any of those things offend you, reading this book might not be a good idea.

Jared’s Evolution and Jared’s Fulfillment must be read in order.

Jared’s Fulfillment is part of the Desires Unleashed collection. Some books in this collection will have darker themes. Please be aware Desires Unleashed are er*tic and not your typical Riley Hart romance. You can expect the mental and emotional journey to be led by the physical/s*xual moments–which will be intense, frequent and kinky.

 “Come here, boy. Your tie isn’t straight.”

I walked over to Kieran and tilted my head up so he could fix my tie. It was silly how good it made me feel, since it was such a simple thing to do for someone, but I loved it when Kieran did the small things. Sometimes, I didn’t think people realized how much the small things mattered, but he did. Kieran thought of everything.

I smiled because I knew it brought him joy too.

“What are you grinning at?” he asked as he finished.

“You,” I told him, and then added, “Thank you, Daddy.”

“So beautiful when you say that to me.” He rubbed his thumb across my bottom lip. “I love to watch your mouth when you call me Daddy.” He cupped my cheek, leaned in and pressed a soft kiss to my lips. I savored it, nearly melting into him. Kieran reached me on a bone-deep level. My body had a visceral reaction to him any time he was in the same room. And the reaction had grown over the last month, since the night of the play. It was then when I’d quietly decided to show Kieran how much I loved him, with my service to him. When I’d decided to secretly fight for us, the best way I knew how.

“Finish getting ready. I’ll put bagels on,” he told me, pressing another quick kiss to my mouth.

“Thank you,” I replied, before watching Kieran walk out of the room. I loved the way he moved—the power in the way he held his body. The dominance in him. He filled me in ways I never knew I needed, in ways that left me forever changed. He was everything to me and I couldn’t deny that. I didn’t want to. I wanted to bask in it because, for the first time in my life, I truly understood what it was like to be happy. Secure. At peace. Protected.

After walking over to Kieran’s dresser, I plucked a pair of socks from the top drawer, pulled them onto my feet, and then slipped on my shoes before I met him in the kitchen.

“You’re going to lunch with Marco today?” he confirmed. Marco and I had begun spending quite a bit of time together. He was funny and understanding. He always answered my questions and freely shared his own stories with me. I truly liked him and was thankful for this new friendship.

“Yes.”

I walked over to help but he said, “Sit. I’ll take care of it.”

Another smile pulled at my lips; I loved the feeling of Kieran caring for me…of him telling me what to do. It made my head spin in the best sort of way. It was amazing, really, the way this lifestyle had changed me. The way it had grounded me—strengthened me. It’s not something I would have believed before my relationship with Kieran. It’s not something most people could likely understand but then…why did anyone else have to understand it? It was the way we chose to live. People often forgot that because something was wrong for them, it didn’t mean it was wrong for everyone, or hell, that it was wrong in any way.


 Riley Hart is the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. She’s a hopeless romantic, a lover of sexy stories, passionate men, and writing about all the trouble they can get into together.

She loves reading, flawed characters, and hanging out with her husband and children, who she adores. She and her family live in Southern California, soaking up the sunshine while also missing seasons. Not a day goes by that she isn’t thankful she gets to wake up and do what she loves.

Life is good. Riley also writes young adult and new adult under the name Nyrae Dawn.

Review – Ashes To Ashes by Rebecca Norinne 



 Hold on for just a second while I put out the flames from this scorching hot and absolutely beautiful story. This book is very different from Rebecca’s previous works. While her other books don’t lack in the heat department, this one turns it up about 10 notches while still delivering the most beautiful love story. This book will slither it’s way into your heart and soul and make you feel so satisfied. 
Let’s start with Rae. Rae is a tough cookie. She may have gone down a bad path in dealing with how her ex-husband treated her, but make no mistake about it, she is one tough chick. She is fed up with being treated like dirt and has no problem standing up for what she now wants in life. Her happiness is her priority and I so admire that in a strong woman. 
Now onto Ash. Oh Ash. I freaking LOVE Ash. He is a badass alpha male with a dominant side and a need to be loved that he can’t see. He’s been through a lot in his life, like Rae, though they’re stories are significantly different. He is her rock way before the two of them even realized it. 
When these two are forces back together after a one night stand, both are left facing the hidden feelings they’ve harbored all this time. The chemistry is off the charts explosive. The way they emotionally connect though, that takes the cake. Rebecca has seriously stepped her game in a big way with this book, proving the immense diversity she possess with her writing skills. Every book she has released has been nothing short of 5- 6 stars, and I don’t forsee that changing anytime soon with the talent she repeatedly shows us. 

 I had it all, or so I thought. Until my husband betrayed me and my entire world came crashing down. I turned to alcohol and sex to numb my pain—a different city each night, a new man in my bed. But I’m sober now, and I’m working my way back up the country music charts. 

 
But then the death threats started and I needed protection. When my new bodyguard walked in the room, I couldn’t believe my eyes: the one man from my long spiral down who I never forgot. The one who played my body like an instrument.
 
Now we’re on the run from a madman and all I want is to forget about everything. To pretend this isn’t my life. To lose myself in him. So I let him take control.
 
I tried telling myself it was only sex, but I’ve done the unthinkable: I’ve fallen in love with a man who can never love me back. Because Ash has demons of his own—ones he never talks about and never will. I know I should walk away before it’s too late. But I’m an addict, and I need him. 
 
How do you give up something you love, even when you know it’s bad for you? How do you walk away from a man like Ash Devereaux?

Review – If I’d Known by Rebecca Donovan

If Id Known eCover

If I’d Known by Rebecca Donovan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

”Act the way you want everyone to see you, no matter how you’re really feeling.”

Sometimes you read a book that BLASTS through you like countless cannons catapulting your heart, a heart that pounds out of your chest, where you want to scream it—it being If I’d Known by Rebecca Donovan—to the world!!! I want to scream about this story that struck me hard. My mind is still stuck in this story, wrapped up in this mastery of words that OWNED ME. If I’d Known still OWNS every ounce of me.

Trust, Kindness and Boldness. They sound like the best characteristics to possess. Except they’re the reason for just about everything that’s ever gone wrong.

If I’d Known, this fast-paced young adult romantic thriller, is UNIQUE and UNPUTDOWNABLE. It’s CYNICAL and CRUEL at times. It has moments that are just CREEPY. Yet I found myself WHOLEHEARTEDLY BEGUILED, so BEWITCHED with this GOOSE-BUMP INDUCING BOOK, where I DEVOURED every word as if it were my air to breathe. This tale ENAMORED ME where I couldn’t stop reading.

Thrilling and tragically flawed, If I’d Known is a novel so compelling and well-told that it will appeal to older readers as well as young adults. If I’d Known details the life of a troubled teen girl highly attuned to virtues, and delivers a satisfying, but shocking twist ending. The cast of strong characters in this spellbinding saga are simply striking—so full of life—that you can’t help but fall under their spell.

Sassy, smart, and beautiful, the heroine, Lana, is charming without trying at all. She has survived several forms of hell, her young life full of obstacles that would set back most teen girls. However, this teen is wise beyond her years. I LOVED that she’s refreshingly real, brutally honest with sarcasm that is humorous. I admired her honesty and loved her spirit.

I’ve come to accept that, regardless of how honest or silent I am, the truth is fated to destroy my life.

Lana forges a strong bond, a connection full of chemistry, with gorgeous but rebellious Joey during the most unusual of adventures. This heroine and hero MELT together. Their MAGNETIC PULL is unstoppable.

I can’t breathe, but I don’t want to. I grip the front of his shirt, needing to get closer. Needing him. His arm tightened around my waist. I am lost in him, in this kiss.

One night out with friends was fun until it wasn’t.
One night and monsters surfaced from the shadows.
One night possibly altered their lives’ paths.
One night almost resulted in their end.
One night would burn in their memories forever.

This is one BANG-UP BOOK!!! If I’d Known is a HEART-POUNDING RUSH, a raw and riveting roller coaster of a romantic toe-curling thriller. I was BREATHLESS from this book that buzzes with excitement and emotion. Intense. Intriguing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. This story stimulates until the end.

If I’d Known is an aspiring young adult novel with an engaging voice, believable characters, clever plot and some sensational writing. Rebecca Donovan pulls you into the story with a PARALYZING INTENSITY where you can’t stop devouring the words until the last page. If I’d Known whets the appetite where you’re left hungry for MORE. Electrifying, emotionally complex, and blisteringly smart, If I’d Known is UTTERLY UNFORGETTABLE.

”Don’t lose yourself to anyone.”

💋💋💋💋💋 honest kisses

IF I’D KNOWN, the surprise first installment in a new, edgy contemporary YA series from Rebecca Donovan, the bestselling author of the Breathing Series is available now!

“What better way to amplify the anticipation than a surprise release—especially for a series filled with suspense and mystery.” – Rebecca Donovan

“We’re all cursed—every single one of us.”

Lana Peri isn’t afraid of telling anyone exactly what she thinks, even if it gets her into trouble—which it usually does. But the thing is, she can’t lie. Her unfiltered honesty doesn’t exactly make her many friends, although it does get her kicked out of class regularly. Lana knows the truth will eventually be her undoing. If only she’d known it would begin today.

It’s meant to be a night Lana and her best friends will never forget. And it is… for all the wrong reasons. Lana witnesses not just one, but two violent crimes committed by the same person. Except she can’t say a word. Not if she wants to protect her friends.

Lana’s silence will implicate her and inadvertently cover for him. But it’s not like she has a choice. He is powerful. Connected. Untouchable. And a friend of Joey Harrison—the guy Lana is uncharacteristically drawn to the moment they meet. Joey’s also the only one who is told the truth.

His lies will ruin her. Her silence will keep them safe. The truth won’t save any of them.

Optimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe that what’s supposed to happen… will! In that regard, I don’t know how to give up; it’s not part of my biological make up.

I’m a passionate (and some would say, overly enthusiastic) person. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times that I’d like to admit), but I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do – fail or succeed. 

I think this is evident when I write, leaving nothing behind and spilling it all out on the pages. I give it all to my readers – love it or hate it. 

The path I’m on is very often my own, veering off the beaten path at the sight of something more interesting or captivating, getting caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way…

Review – Villain by Samantha Young

Villain by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

”One moment of kindness can change everything.”

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve LOVED fairytales. Fairytales allow you to dare to dream as you’re thrust to a magical land of princes, princesses, and happily ever afters. Samantha Young’s latest love story, Villain, is UTTERLY UNPUTDOWNABLE!!! Villain is an ENCHANTING and EXPLOSIVE FAIRYTALE that SWEEPS YOU AWAY!!!

This fairytale dared me to DREAM as my SOUL SOARED to the sky, feels flying HIGH!!! But this novella packs even more punch! Villain is not just a smoldering and swoony fairytale but a spellbinding suspense!!! I LOVED the mystery that instantly enfolded, drawing me in deeply to this story.

A beautiful and bit of a broken heroine, Nadia, intrigued me from the very first page. The smart broadcast meteorologist has had a string of men let her down so much in life that she’s rather be her own hero after kissing so many villains. I ADMIRED this heroine’s strength!!!

Until one villain becomes more…

Until power meets powerless, a pendulum that swings fiercely throughout this tale…

“If you’re not careful, that lack of fear could ruin you, Miss Ray.”

Henry, oh Henry, where do I begin?!? Henry is a hot playboy billionaire who melts all
women of all ages with merely a smile. He is as captivating as he is charismatic, a smart, sexy, and shrewd businessman. PURE ALPHA PERFECTION!!! I LOVED this Prince Charming hero!!!

What starts out as an assignment to gain information from the enemy, turns into a raging inferno of electricity that ignites when Nadia is near the infuriating gorgeous and insanely wealthy, Henry.

Lines are blurred between hero and villain…

“I’m growing on you.”

“Like a wart.”

Collision after collision has Nadia and Henry together again. It’s as if a force is pulling them, a strong tide. I FELT this force of fire and fate between the hero and heroine.

“I don’t want to never see you again.”

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.

The sexual tension is high. The pull is too palpable, too strong to ignore. I loved this most delicious of angst in Villain! The passion is PALPABLE between the hero and heroine. Their union is UNSTOPPABLE!!!

“I’m going to kiss and such and lick every inch of you.”

Oh. My. HOT!!! Henry’s deliciously dirty mouth made me melt into molten lava!!! This hero and heroine EXPLODE TOGETHER!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE. I felt their chemistry steam off the pages, a blaze of fire that burned me everywhere!!!

“You are all I truly see.”

SWOOON!!! When you’re still SMILING after a story is over, you know it’s a GEM and oh is Villain so so BRILLIANT and BRIGHT. This story is SWEET and SEXY with strong characters that captivate from beginning to end. With a hot and rich hero who is one knight-in-shining armor and a beautiful but broken heroine, these characters are POTENT TOGETHER!!! Henry and Nadia made me FALL HARD IN LOVE with them and EVERYTHING VILLAIN!!! I could not help but become BESOTTED with this fierce and feel-worthy fairytale!!!

Packed with humor, heat, and heart, Villain is the PERFECT ROMANCE. Samantha Young has written a FLAWLESS FAIRYTALE—one DREAMY READ—that will leave you not wanting but NEEDING MORE!!! With a SWEET SIGH and permanent smile etched on my face, I’m still floating on Cloud Nine where I feel like Cinderella swept away by Prince Charming, royally hitched to this fairytale forever. Villain is SIMPLY MAGICAL!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 sweet and steamy fairytale stars

The sexy and emotional companion novella to the New York Times bestselling romance HERO.

Nadia Ray is not just a broadcast meteorologist. She’s Boston’s morning television It Girl. Successful and independent, she’s put a past she’s ashamed of behind her and is forging a future she can be proud of. However, when her new boss discovers her secret he blackmails her, intent on using Nadia’s popularity to make them the number one morning show in Massachusetts. He wants her to be part of uncovering the city’s biggest scandal – a secret billionaire Caine Carraway is hiding.

Soon Nadia is thrown into the path of Caine’s best friend: sexy, wealthy bachelor Henry Lexington. But she doesn’t encounter the dashing high society gentleman Henry is purported to be. Instead she’s faced with an insulting and defensive villain who misjudges her at every turn.

When Henry finally realizes the truth, and decides to make amends, Nadia wants nothing to do with him. But she underestimates his determination and charm and soon they find themselves embroiled in an intense, passionate affair.

An affair Nadia knows must come to an end before their feelings grow any deeper and he discovers her secrets.

After all, Henry Lexington isn’t the only one who played the part of a villain once…

Review – He Loves Me Knot by RC Boldt 



6 out of 5 stars 

 6 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.

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.
