5 out of 5 stars

Alex Grayson stuns again! This is a must read that is emotional, dark, gritty and raw. It will consume you completely so that all you can think of is how quickly you can turn the pages because you can’t get enough.

Alex never disappoints and she owns me with her words that suck you a vortex so strong that there is no escape. Over and over again she proves why she is a must read author for me. I don’t even need to read the synopsis, I just know if Alex wrote it then I’m reading it!

You will feel every emotion that these characters go through. She pulls you into the story so you feel connected completely with the characters. Wow. Just wow. Thank you Alex for constantly blowing my mind every time!

Four men, irrevocably bound together by their horrifying past…

Trouble and his brothers escaped from Malus, Texas as kids. In the dead of night, they left behind a Hell so ominous, it made National news.
When they returned as adults, it was to seek revenge and justice. Malus is theirs now. They own it, they rule it, and they protect it. By any means necessary.
Trouble carries demons inside him. The need for blood and vindication runs deep in his veins, and nothing will stop the darkness within him from shining its evil eyes.
When Remi arrives, pregnant and in need of help, she has no idea she’s come to the one place she should have stayed far away from. Something dark surrounds the town. A malevolence she has no hope of surviving.
Will Trouble drag Remi into the dark pits of Hell? Or will she be the ultimate downfall of the devil himself?

A whoosh-whoosh fills the silent room as soon as I touch the transducer wand to her stomach and a real smile forms on her face. I spread out the gel and wiggle it around, getting a good look at the baby, which is most definitely a boy. A very frisky one at that. A chuckle slips past my lips before I can stop it.

“What is it?” she asks, and I look at her. Her eyes run from me to the screen and back again.

I point to the screen. “You see this right here?” She nods. “Well, it seems your boy has started early in twiddling his diddle.”

She frowns, and her face scrunches in confusion. “I don’t—” She stops abruptly, and her eyes widen. “What the….” She tilts her head to the side and leans closer to the screen. “Is he…?”

“Yes. He’s flicking his wick.”

“Oh, my God!” she groans, and I laugh when she covers her red face with her hands. “My son is a pervert!”

“Nah, he’s just a curious little guy.”

Her hands drop to her sides and her pert nose wrinkles. “He’s a dirty little guy.”

I chuckle and move the transducer to get a good look at his heart. A steady rhythmic beat comes over the speaker at the same time it appears on the screen.

“His heartbeat is good.” I check over a few more things. “Everything seems to be fine. His measurements are spot on for thirty-four weeks. Would you like some pictures?”

“Yes, please.” Her smile is back in place, and it only makes her look prettier.

I slide the wand over her stomach, getting images at various angles. Just because I have a warped sense of humor, I make sure to get one of the little guy still dangling his diddle. I also manage to get a good one of his face.

While the machine prints off the pictures, I grab a tissue and wipe away the gel from her stomach. Unnecessarily, because she can do it herself, but I find I like to torture myself by touching her, I slip my fingertips beneath the waistband of her leggings and gently lift it over her stomach. When I lift my eyes to her, it’s to see her startling blue ones on me. Her chest isn’t moving, so I know she’s holding her breath. Because I just don’t know when to stop, I hold her eyes as I grab her shirt that’s still tucked beneath her breasts and pull it down. My knuckles graze the soft material of her bra, and I’m not sure if it was intentional or an accident. Either way, her breath hitches.

I clear my throat. “You’re all cleared and free to continue your trip to Colorado. Although, I would suggest taking it easy and making sure you’re well prepared. There’s long stretches of Texas where there aren’t many places to stop.”

When she stays quiet, I look over my shoulder at her. She has her thumb at her mouth, biting her nail. When she spots me looking at her, she drops her hand.

“Uh, about that. It looks like I’ll be staying a while.”

“Why?” The question comes out a bit harsher than intended, but I do nothing to set her at ease when I see her jolt.

She’s sitting up on the bed now with her hands planted on the top of her rounded stomach. I feel like a jerk when she speaks next, because there’s no mistaking the hesitancy in her voice.

“The mechanic said it would take a while to get the parts for my car. Apparently, there was more wrong with it than just my AC.”

A muttered curse slips through my lips, and her eyebrows jump up. I roughly rake a hand through my hair. “I’ll talk to Mick and see if there’s anything he can do to get it fixed sooner.”

The woman needs to leave Malus, and she needs to do it yesterday. She’s been here long enough already. With The Finishing tomorrow, she definitely doesn’t need to be anywhere near here. Citizens aren’t allowed near The Finishing, but it makes me really uneasy knowing an outsider is in town. If she were to get wind of it, there’s no way we could let her leave here to alert the authorities.

Protecting the town and its inhabitants is our top priority, no matter the cost. The pretty pregnant woman would have to be dealt with. The premise behind Malus is to ensure the innocent stay innocent and safe, by any means necessary.

“Can you really do that? I mean, will he listen to you?”

The question is almost laughable. She obviously has no clue how this town is run. This is my brother’s and my town. The townsfolk don’t necessarily fear us, but they do listen, because it’s us who provides the protection they crave.

“He’ll listen.”

By the tone of my voice and the hard look on my face, Remi has no choice but to believe me.

“Okay. Thank you. As nice as it’s been here, I’d really rather get on my way to my brother’s.”

“Expect a phone call from Mick this evening.”

She nods and makes a move to climb from the bed. Seeing her struggling, I walk over and grab her elbow to help her down. Once she’s on her feet, a lock of hair falls in her face. I lift my hand to push it away, but before I get a chance, she blows it away herself. My hand falls limply by my side.

I take a step back from her, because I’m way too close and her scent is driving me mad. Remembering the sonogram pictures, I reach over and grab them from the machine and hold them out to her.

“Thanks.”

Her face lights up beautifully as she looks down at the images. She flips from one to the other, until she comes across the one of the baby’s face. Something dark momentarily wipes away the contented look. I want to ask her what’s going on in her head, but it’s not my business.

When she gets to the picture of the baby playing with himself, a laugh escapes her lips. She holds the picture closer to her face before looking at me. Mirth twinkles in her eyes.

“I already can’t wait to show this to his future wife,” she says with a giggle.

I chuckle and shake my head. “I feel sorry for him.”

She shrugs. “He’ll live. It’s a rite of passage for parents to embarrass their kids.”

The smile slips from my lips, and I turn away from her toward the door. Having normal parents is one thing I wouldn’t know about.

Pulling the door open, I turn back. “Mick should have the parts in a couple of days. Have a safe trip.”

She opens her mouth to say something, but I’m already walking away. The more time I’m around the woman, the more my body reacts to her.

Thankfully, this visit is the last I should see of her.

My legacy.

Jolie Chapman.
I thought I was entitled to her, too.
My love.

In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost.
My legacy. My love.
Everything.

I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption.
Stripped of everything I’d been raised to consider my birthright.
Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all.

They’ve been earned.
Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too.

When You Became Mine by A.S. Teague

5 out of 5 stars

OMG! I feel like I’ve been waiting so long for another A.S. Teague book. I absolutely love her writing. This book just further proves why I love her love her writing so much.

A childhood crush that finally gets to play out years later, this book takes you on a journey through the years and how true love can overcome anything. I absolutely love Lawson. He stole my heart. I wanted to see him get his happy ending so badly.

Piper never noticed Lawson growing up. She had eyes for his brother, but he had eyes for Piper’s brother. Can you say oops? Lol. They stayed best friends and roommates until one day fate finally steps in and gives Lawson the chance to finally get his chance.

You will fall in love with these characters immediately and you will be glued to your kindle until the last word. Another amazing book by A.S. Teague! I highly recommend this one!! ❤❤

I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.

The night of my college graduation party, I finally made my move, but Piper only had eyes for one man—my younger brother.

With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved once again that it had never cared about my plans.

Now, I’m back home, and determined not to fall into the same trap I spent the majority of my adolescence trying to escape.

But when Piper finds herself at the risk of losing her medical license, I realize just how far I’m willing to go to protect her.

I was twelve when Piper Kelley became mine.

It’s time I let her know.

Unchained by Helen Hardt

5 out of 5 stars

Fangtastic

I loved this book for so many reasons. #1-completely different from the rest of Helen’s books #2- wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Oh I definitely knew that it would be a whole new series that takes over my life; and I was 100% correct. Helen dives into the paranormal world of vampires and makes it her own. You won’t be reading anything like you’ve read before. I guarantee that! Helen is unique, truly one of a kind.

I don’t want to really give any plot details away, so I’ll keep this part brief. Just know that you will absolutely see vampires in a new light and you WILL fall in love with Dante! Seriously, he’s mine! He has so much to overcome and one saucy ER nurse is just the person he needs. The rest you have to read to see.

It’s a quick read, so you can just relax for a while and jump into the paranormal world of Helen Hardt!

Unchained (Blood Bond Saga Vol 1)

Also Available Now – Blood Bond Saga 4 & 5

by #1 New York Times Bestselling author Helen Hardt

Release Date: 2nd October

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Part one:

Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.

Part two:

Dante Gabriel is angry. Someone has violated the woman whose scent has left him emotionally paralyzed, and he’s become unhinged. He vows to protect Erin Hamilton—mostly from himself.

Erin has other ideas. She’s determined to figure out the strange man who keeps leaving her aroused and unsatisfied. When she pushes Dante for answers, he goes looking for them himself. What he uncovers could put Erin in mortal danger, with him as her only salvation.

Part three:

Now that Dante Gabriel recognizes the blood bond Erin Hamilton has formed with him, he has unwound a little. Still, he must find a way to convince her that she must complete the bond for both their sakes. Vampires are rapidly dying out, and humans have long considered them nothing more than a myth. How can he make her understand?

Erin has fallen in love with Dante, but she’s still confused and angered by his behavior. To keep her mind occupied, she immerses herself in a mystery that has evolved at work. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin begins to wonder if one of the ER doctors might be involved.

Part four:

Vampires are real. That fact has Erin Hamilton thinking she’s headed for crazy town. Still, she can’t deny the intense emotion she experiences when Dante Gabriel sinks his teeth into her neck to take her blood. She’s in love, and her body responds to his bite in a way she never could have imagined.

Once Dante tastes Erin’s blood, he’s addicted forever and cannot live without it. He’s heartbroken when she demands that he leave and never return. But neither can live without the other now, which puts them both at risk.

Part Five:

Once bonded, never broken. The words give Dante Gabriel hope…until he remembers where he first heard them. The information he needs is hidden in the ancient Vampyre Texts, but he encounters obstacle after obstacle while trying to decipher them, even when someone from his past returns to help.

Though she tries, Erin Hamilton can’t resist Dante. When he comes for her, she always submits willingly, despite her best intentions. She loves him but still can’t bring herself to accept him as vampire…even as other vampires, lured by her arousing scent, begin to close in on her.

Hardt & Soul

Review – Faux Pas by Natasha Madison

5 out of 5 stars

Natasha continues to rock my world with every single book she releases. She is versatile and can write extremely emotional to ROM com, to sexy and witty. This book was a breath of fresh air that made me swoon, laugh, cry, and stay glued to my kindle. Let’s not forget about the STEAM factor!!! You will need some air conditioning to cool you off. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

These characters will draw you in and have you head over heels in love with both of them. What starts as a short fling turns into so much more, and Natasha nailed this one (no surprise there). Perfect book and just what I needed to get me out of my reading funk.

Meghan

Five days in Paris sounded like a great idea for three friends. Especially when amazing wine was in play.

It didn’t matter that our rented “apartment” only had one bed, and barely enough space to breathe. We were in Paris and our motto was c’est la vie.

Nothing would faze us, not even the rude waiter at the first restaurant we went to, or the insanely hot manager who was insulted when a bottle of wine was returned.

Nothing could bring me down or knock me off my path to the best vacation of my life.

Alex

I had six days in Paris and then I’d go back to my wine vineyard. It was smooth sailing until three “Americans” came into the restaurant and returned my newest full-bodied, savory creation.

I ignored her until she stormed out of the restaurant looking for a taxi at one in the morning. I couldn’t leave her wandering around the streets of Paris, could I?

I’d give her a ride, make sure she was safe, and my duty would be done. Except, was it?

Something about her pulled me.

This could be a vacation fling. After all, there is no real reason for her to know my interesting secret.

I’m France’s most eligible bachelor.

This faux pair is almost a faux pas…

He makes his way through the tables, straight to ours. “quel est le problème?” What is the problem, his voice comes out gruff, the smell of his musk hitting my nose.

“Le vin n’est pas bon,” The wine isn’t good, I start saying, and I look at his eyes that look almost black. I’m not sure if it’s his natural color, or if the restaurant is dimmer now than before, or maybe it’s just his form blocking the lights. “il a un goût de vinaigre.” It tastes like vinegar, and I’m not sure it was the right thing to say or not. He stares at me, not saying a word. “Taste it.” I give up on my French and switch to English. “You’ll see.”

I’m waiting for him to say something back, but he doesn’t. Instead, he turns around and walks away from the table, going into the back. “What the fuck just happened?” Diana says in a whisper. We all turn to see where he went, checking to see if he is going to storm back in.

“She insulted his wine,” Kate says, leaning in and speaking softly.

I throw my hands in the air. “It was shit,” I say louder than I wanted to. “You guys said it yourself.” Looking around, I see that a couple of the tables are looking at us, but the majority of the tables are deep in their own conversations and not paying attention.

We don’t say anything else when we see the waiter come back with a new bottle in one hand and a new wine glass in the other. He uncorks the wine, then pours a touch in and waits for me to taste it. I don’t say anything to him; I just nod my head, and he puts the bottle in the middle of the table. “I guess I will pour the wine,” Kate says, picking up the bottle and pouring it in everyone’s glass. I pick up the glass of wine and bring it to my lips. The cold glass is resting on my lips when I feel someone staring at me. I look down and take a sip, then look around, and I guess it’s just me because no one is looking in my direction.

By the time we finish dinner, we’ve drunk two more bottles. and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The food was amazing. “We need a taxi,” I say. Getting up, I grab my jacket, shrugging it on.

“I think we can walk to the corner that way,” Diana says, pointing at the sky, “and flag one down.”

“If we go that way,” Kate says, pointing at the sky, “we need to call NASA.” We all laugh out loud while the waiter comes to take the bill from us.

“Merci.” We smile at him as he walks away, still not saying a word.

“Yes, thank you for my glass of ice cubes that you only brought me one of even though I asked for seven,” Kate says, laughing while trying to whisper. “And thank you for pouring our wine.”

“Okay, let’s go,” I say, walking to the front door.

“I’m going to ask him for a taxi,” Kate says, going to the waiter who stands at the hostess counter and asking him for a cab.

I watch from the front door as Diana stands behind her while I look in my bag and pull out my lip gloss.

“Pardon.” I hear Kate say loudly, and I look up.

“Vous pensez qu’après tout ce que vous avez fait ce soir vous méritez que je vous appelle un taxi ?” I stand here with my mouth open in shock when he answered her. Do you think after everything you did to me tonight that you deserve that I call you a taxi?

Kate starts. “What did I do? Expect you to do your job?” she says, and Diana grabs her arm, pulling her to the front door.

“Did he just say …?” I ask her when we are standing outside in front of the restaurant, the wind blowing my hair in front of my face. I turn my head, making it fly back the other way.

“So it’s safe to say,” Diana starts with a laugh, “we aren’t coming back to this restaurant.”

“Take a picture of it, and tomorrow we can go on Yelp and leave a bad review,” Kate says, grabbing her phone from her pocket.

“Let’s just go,” I say, and the three of us look around at the desolate street.

“What time is it?” I ask and take out my phone. “Shit, it’s one a.m.”

“Yeah,” Diana says. We look right down the dark street and see some traffic coming from up ahead. “We should walk to that street and flag down a taxi.”

We all nod and start walking with Kate in the middle. “He was such an ass,” Kate says, “and the boss or manager was an even bigger ass.”

“Seriously,” I say, turning to them. “It’s like it was my fault his wine was shit,” I say, and then we all stop when a white four-door Audi stops next to us, surprising us.

“Get in.” The voice sounds familiar, but the street is so dark it doesn’t help. I lean in a bit to see his face, and I’m shocked when I see it’s the manager from the restaurant.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review – Guilty As Sin by Meghan March

5 out of 5 stars

Oh Meghan Meghan Meghan! You are seriously a rock star! Continuously you surpass your perfection with each book. I don’t know how that’s possible, but it’s the only way I can describe how truly amazing each book is. You somehow surpass perfection. I don’t know how you do it. You are the queen of cliffhangers, and you made me love them. I never thought I would say that but you perfectly end each book with my jaw dropping to the floor and a gasp.

This book is full of twists and turns that keep you on your toes. You will go through all the feels. EVERY SINGLE ONE!!! I know you’re probably thinking hey give me details. I absolutely will not because I will not spoil pure perfection for anyone. Just one click and get comfortable because you won’t be putting this one down til the last word, and even then you won’t want to part. Talk about a book hangover. I got a book COMA!

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

RICHER THAN SIN – BOOK 1 AVAILABLE NOW

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Review – Fighting For What’s His by Laura Kaye

5 out of 5 stars

I really don’t know what to say right now. I mean, Laura has left me in a book hangover of epic proportions. Every emotion is felt in this book from happy to heartbreaking to complete bliss!

One of my favorite things about Laura’s writing is that she truly brings light to what veterans go through when they adjust back to the civilian world. It’s not as easy as people think. You can tell that Laura does her research and delivers one absolutely perfect book after another.

You will love the dynamics between these two. They don’t have it easy, by any means but they find a way to come out with the best ending. Twists, turns, emotional roller coaster rides- we get them all. In short, this was another absolutely perfect book by Laura Kaye. One perfect book after another. Can’t wait for what’s next!

What has a sexy, bad-ass veteran hero…
A feisty and independent heroine who won’t hesitate to stand up for herself…
A forbidden, best friend’s younger sister conflict…
And a forced-proximity roommates-to-lovers situation that creates all kinds of sexual tension?

FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS—the second standalone title in New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye’s Warrior Fight Club series! FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS is now available! Grab your copy and join the Warrior Fight Club world today!

About FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS (Warrior Fight Club #2, 9/7/18):

This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…

Resisting her only makes him want her more…

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, she’s grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can’t wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she’s there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can’t have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what’s his.

Shayna saw Billy through the windows to the gym with the fighting rings where his club met. He was on his knees facing another fighter—a woman with a long black braid—while a bigger group knelt around the two of them. Shay had just enough time to appreciate that the club included women veterans before the woman attacked him.

For a long moment, they grappled with each other until Billy managed to flip the woman and pin her to the ground.

Three visceral reactions rocked through Shayna.

An almost animalistic appreciation of Billy’s brute strength.

Arousal at the memory of Billy pinning her against the wall.

And jealousy that another woman was experiencing the feeling of the weight of his body instead of her.

Shayna’s heart tripped into a sprint as she stood there, slack-jawed and wanting…

Suddenly, Billy sprang into a kneeling position again as the woman got up and moved to the outer ring of people, and it was clear that some sort of trash-talk being thrown between them from the looks on their faces and the way the others were laughing and clapping.

And then Mo moved into the center with Billy. As big as Billy was, Mo…Mo was like a mountain. His ready smile and deep laugh had earlier put Shayna at ease and allayed any concerns she’d had that she might be invading a space where she wasn’t wanted. But now Mo looked nothing short of intimidating as he stared Billy down.

The men seemed to lunge at the same time. They slammed into each other and worked to pull each other flat to the ground, and then finally they both went down. Shayna couldn’t see who had the advantage around those cheering the two men on, and she realized that she was straining and moving to the side to get a better view.

Whatever was going on, it was much longer before the fighters traded out, and this time it was Billy coming out of the center to join those on the side. A few of his teammates shook his hand before he moved outside of the group to grab his water bottle. And then he tilted his head way back to take a long drink.

And, holy mother of sweaty hot men, Billy Parrish was freaking gorgeous.

Muscles glistening. Shorts hanging dangerously low on his lean hips. Dark blond hair made even darker from sweat. Even the fingerless black gloves he wore were sexy as fuck. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he drank.

Shayna swallowed hard herself.

He wiped his mouth on the back of his glove and capped the bottle again, and then he did a double take as he noticed her standing in the window.

Heat absolutely roared over Shayna at having been caught so blatantly ogling him. And there was a smugness to the almost-smile he wore. But he gave her a little wave and nodded his head as if to invite her inside.

The gesture should not have made any part of her feel gooey, but it seemed her crush on her brother’s best friend had resurrected enough to indeed cause gooeyness. Whether she wanted that to happen or not.

Laura is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty books in contemporary and erotic romance and romantic suspense, including the Blasphemy, Hard Ink, and Raven Riders series. Growing up, Laura’s large extended family believed in the supernatural, and family lore involving angels, ghosts, and evil-eye curses cemented in Laura a life-long fascination with storytelling and all things paranormal. Laura also writes historical fiction as the NYT bestselling author, Laura Kamoie. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters, and appreciates her view of the Chesapeake Bay every day.

Review – More of You by A. L. Jackson

More of You Cover

More of You by A.L. Jackson

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

When you begin and end a book in tears, you know it’s one that spoke to your soul. More of You by AL Jackson spoke to my soul. Sang to my soul. Shattered my soul. Slayed my soul. This story was my soul. So STUNNING! I LOVED IT!!! Second chance romances are my weakness, and More of You was my KRYPTONITE. PURE ROMANCE GOLD.



”You are beauty looking back at me.”

More of You is so much more than a romance. MORE of EVERYTHING. It’s poetry—dreamy lyrics that come to life. It’s a story of regret and retribution, sacrifice and selflessness, and faith and forgiveness. It’s an emotional journey of fated friends and forever soulmates who lost their way. It’s a stunning, suspenseful, and soulful second-chance romance that grabbed me from the first page and never let go. I never let go.

”You took my heart when you left.”

“And I left mine with you.”

This is the story of two fractured and fated soulmates who became lost along the way until a collision of past and present brings them together. Jace and Faith. Beauty and Beast. So perfect together. So meant to be. Faith is an old soul who has lived a thousand years, so gorgeous and so giving, a beacon of light in the dark. Jace, I fell for this broken and big-hearted man right away, a beautiful beast with a vulnerable side that shows as he finds his light, his Beauty. I felt the forever love of Faith and Jace. I felt the pain of these characters as if it were mine. A broken hero and heroine that broke me yet melted me. Again and again.

I’d been lost for years. And with her in my arms? The only thing I could think was that I’d been found. Rescued.

The element of suspense fused with the feel-worthy writing makes this story a force to be reckoned with—UNFLINCHING and UNSTOPPABLE. You’ll hang off the emotional edge. This tender and thrilling tale tears your heart wide open and shakes every emotion out of you until you’re exploding. An EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION. Your heart will shatter into a million pieces and slowly be pieced back together again—maybe a few times. You can’t help but be ALL IN. More of You makes you feel every word in a story that’s everything you’d want in a romance. Heady. Hypnotizing. Heartfelt.

”What do you see in me?”

“Everything.”

There’s beauty bound to the words AL Jackson pens to life, the kind that makes you take deep breaths and tear up with not just the sad words but all the words. Words that take my breath away. Words that hold all the emotion. So powerful. So passionate. So poignant. I get all teary-eyed when AL Jackson’s soul-clenching words fuse with my heart and soul; I can’t help myself. I read her words with tears of sorrow and swoon. Poetry on pages with the power to touch every emotion. Oh did More of You touch me so much!

”You’re ruining me. Ruining every single thing I’d forced myself into believing.”

“You ruined me a long time ago.”

More of You is so beautiful, so broken, so breathtaking, and so brilliantly told. This book broke me in the best and most beautiful of ways. Toward the end, I felt each word through the tears. Words that stole my soul, stomping on it with each breath My heart bled for this book. My heart beat out of my chest. My heart was hit so hard, it spun right into my soul. Sweetness and sorrow. A story that shattered me, made me swoon and swept me away into its world. A.L. Jackson has written another stunning and soul-shattering romance that shoots sparks straight through the heart. More of You, with its meaningful and memorable characters, is a story that stays with the heart and soul long after the last page. Sheer brilliance from beginning to end. So heartbreakingly beautiful. So EVERYTHING.

”I think I’ve loved you since the day I met you.”

Another TOP 2018 & LIFETIME READ from the amazing AL Jackson!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 but worth all the beauty and beast stars

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . . 

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.

Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance

Review – Timid by Devney Perry

Timid by Devney Perry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love a good small town romance! Devney Perry continues to wow me with her words and is quickly becoming a top go-to author. From the swoon-filled sweet sigh to the shrieking oh my, Devney Perry amps up the second super star in her Lark Cove series, Timid, with the most delicious twists that turn this sweet small town romance into one riveting roller coaster. This friends-to-lovers story bursts with love and light—a slow burn of swoon and soul. This book buzzes with beauty, hums with heart, and sings with soul. INCREDIBLE!

”You were my risk.”

It was so wonderful to return to Lark Cove! Ahhh . . . I could almost breathe in the fresh air as I inhaled Timid, a tale painted with incredible detail. Set in beautiful lakeside Montana, the story of a beautiful and beguiling heroine, a broken and breathtakingly handsome hero, a combustible connection, a forever friendship, and the force of fate that finally forges these soulmates together is SIMPLY STUNNING.

”I don’t know how to love you.”

I was ENTHRALLED with these charming characters with so much heart. I felt this simmering story of a broken hero, Jackson, and the beautifully-hearted heroine, Willa, the light to his dark who brings him back to life. This story slow burns to perfection.

”I’m standing up for you. I’ll fight for you.”

Like Tattered, Timid is IRRESISTIBLY CHARMING, a sweet small town romance that tears at the heartstrings and never lets go. It’s SWEET. It’s SMOLDERING. It’s STIRRING. It’s SUSPENSEFUL. It’s SPECIAL. The writing is pure ‘melt-your-heart’ MAGIC. SO HEARTWARMING! Timid embedded itself into my heart, and I LOVED every bit of this beauty!

”It’s always been you.”

A MUST-MEET small town romance!

💋💋💋💋💋 simmering and soulful kisses

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.
