Darren Bridge is living a bachelor’s dream. When he’s not running into burning buildings with his crew, he’s training the flavor of the week at his brother’s gym.

Overworked with no end in sight, Vanessa Hawkins hasn’t had a vacation in nearly two years. When Cameron and Maya’s destination wedding takes her out of the office for a much-needed break, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to the best man.

Review – Cherry Popper by Jade Sinner 


Cherry Popper by Jade Sinner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sometimes there is a pesky itch that can only be scratched hard with a steamy quickie. Something fast, fire-hot, and fantastic. A super sexy session in the sheets that is short but oh-so-satisfying. Or a short story that you can rapidly devour like a delicious and decadent dessert. Cherry Popper is that dessert with whipped cream, sprinkles, and, of course, cherries.

If I want an enticing escape in mere minutes, I can count on Jade Sinner to deliver fast fulfillment with pages that peel off panties and penetrate the heart, climaxing right to that sweet spot, and finally basking in the glow of a happily ever after. Cherry Popper is pure pulse-pounding pleasure packed in a sweet and sexy short story that satisfies in a heartbeat. Instant gratification guaranteed.

There is nothing more special and sweet than a friends-to-lovers romance. Add the forbidden element of the older brother’s best friend as the lover and it is even sweeter. Cherry Popper has ALL the story succulence: friends-to-lovers, forbidden, sexy, and sweet! It’s perfect balance of edge and emotion mixed in with history. 

Ben has had a crush on his best friend’s little sister, Emma, for as long as he remember. 

“Emma Briggs. Within my reach yet completely unobtainable.”

This man is super HOT! Dark-haired, dark-eyed, tall, and muscular with the V that points to his big D. Ben is ALL man. Sex-on-a-stick deliciousness. 


Ben’s dirty and delicious words when imagining just how he would pop Emma’s cherry gave me a head-to-toe fever. SCORCHING! 

“I spent all night imagining her legs wrapped around me while I pound my cock into her tight, wet pussy.”

Beautiful Emma with her long dark hair, blue eyes, curves, and mile-long legs has been waiting her whole life for Ben to finally notice her as more than his best friend’s little sister. 

“Ben Westbrook. I have loved that man my entire life.”

SWOON!

Ben is ready to pop Emma’s cherry so hard that it bursts with the Ben effect. 

“Desire is telling me to do it—to pop her cherry. It would be so easy to give in and take her because she’ll feel so good.”

Though obstacles like age, Emma’s older brother who also Ben’s best friend, and more threaten to stop his cherry popping parade. 

I only had a short book date with Ben and Emma but they won me over quickly. The all-consuming alpha and reformed man whore, Ben, and the adoring Emma. Their chemistry is electric and there is so much heat and heart between them.

Two romance authors bled into one power pack called Jade Sinner. Who is this Jade Sinner who’s hit the romance world like a storm with spicy and seductive little numbers that work quickly to penetrate with passion and pure pleasure?!? This dynamic duo has banged out a short story packed with steam, and it would be a sin not to meet this team’s wonderful work.

My best friend’s little sister. That’s all Emma Briggs is to me. 
I keep trying to convince myself that statement is true but it’s a lie. 

It’s her face I see every time I close my eyes. 

It’s her touch I yearn to feel. 

It’s her lips I long to kiss. 

It’s her cherry I want to pop. 

We were separated by time and distance, but now she’s back in my life. And everything has changed. 

Every. Thing. 

She’s no longer that kid tagging along behind me. The special bond I’ve shared with her—for as long as I can remember—has become something so different. Something so forbidden. Something so hot. 

Desire is telling me to do it—to pop her cherry. It would be so easy to give in and take her because she’ll feel so good. 

My best friend’s little sister is all grown up. And I want her. 

She. Will. Be. Mine.

Each novella in The Reckless Series is about a different couple and can be read as a stand-alone, although reading in order is highly recommended. You will find spoilers in the epilogues if you choose to read out of order.

No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.
A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the
beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an
underground prison to die.
They failed. I survived.
Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.
Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold,
merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.
Then she drifts into my life.
Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my
enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.
Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.
Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what
has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.
For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness,
an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast
plan backfire.

“damn tit-slinging ninja.”

Had me giggling like a school girl. The dark elements were gritty. The sex was undeniably hot and erotic.

Review: Backfire by Keri Lake

Backfire AMAZON

Review Graphic

I have been a fan of Keri Lake since I read Soul Avenged years and years ago! I love how she can turn dark and gritty into a beautiful, perfect love story. Backfire was no different and I immediately fell in love with the characters, the story, and the setting. Backfire was dark, gritty, romance perfection. Keri Lake weaves a story that is unapologetic with a beautiful darkness that will leave you breathless, on the edge of your seat, and begging for more and more. I. COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN!

“Shit thing about life is, when you throw an immovable object into the path of a bullet, it doesn’t follow any laws or principles. It backfires.”

Lucy is a beautiful, intelligent woman who dropped out of college after her mother’s death. She works for an underground newspaper and has a job at a strip club doing graphics for their advertisement. Doing what she needs to do to get by day by day and pay the bills. Lucy is into thrill seeking photography called urbex. When Lucy is out shooting a desolate, run down, abandoned building she is witness and records a gruesome crime. Little did she know, the thrill seeking had just begun.

“When I was seven, my mother told me that there were devils cloaked as angels, and that I would learn to see beyond their masks. Fifteen years later, though, and I could still be fooled.”

Jase is a panty-dropping, hotter than sin, bad boy. He’s had a rough childhood….a rough life all around. After being thrust into a salt mine prison for over a year, he is released by an unexpected adversary. Jase has a thirst for blood. He was to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him and taken those he loved from him. His first task though? Find the one behind the camera who ratted him out in the first place. The one, who was responsible for him being imprisoned.

……but he has a time limit, or he could be the one who ends up dead.

“Five weeks to hunt down the men who destroyed my life. Five weeks to exact my revenge.”

While Keri Lake has a natural talent for bringing the dark, and gritty elements to her stories she also has some humor thrown in as well. Things such as…

“damn tit-slinging ninja.”

Had me giggling like a school girl. The dark elements were gritty. The sex was undeniably hot and erotic. The building of the relationship between the hero and the heroine was perfect. The slow gradual build of trust was exactly as is should be. Their was a familiarity between the two characters that neither one could put their finger on. The push and pull between the two of the made me want to yell at them! They both fought their attraction, their connection to each other, until they could fight no more.

“I didn’t want shelter or safety from his storm. I wanted to be swept up and taken away, spiraling out of control with him.”

I have been a Keri Lake fan for a long time and will continue to love and support her phenomenal work! She never disappoints! This book had everything I love and more! The dark, the romance, the sex, the ups and downs and twists and turns that you never see coming! Backfire had me on the edge of my seat, flipping page after page wondering……WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?! This book had me biting my nails with the suspense and anticipation of what was to come. Keri Lake definitely delivered with this phenomenally written, beautifully dark book! I can’t wait for what comes next!!

“When you want something bad enough, you can’t be afraid of the fall.”

Dual Review: Strange Magic & Dream Magic by Michelle Mankin

Dream Magic5

Dream Magic

Review Graphic

What a fun read, such a wild ride of twists and turns that I never wanted to end! Michelle outdid herself when she wrote Strange Magic and completely surpassed my expectations with Dream Magic! This story had me turning page after page until I was finished!

Beautiful, Courage, Strength, Love, Loyalty. All words that describe the heroine in Dream Magic. She loves fiercely and would do anything to protect those she loves. Cecelia (CiCi) has been dealt a tough had by fate. She has become the prisoner of a cruel man who forces her to Prophesy, draining her energy from her. She has come to terms with her fate. No one will be able to rescue her. She’ll never be free again. She’ll never find love.

Morpheus, we all know and love, from Strange Magic is our hero in this book. He’s still a sexy as hell Falcon, and the fastest supernatural alive! He sets out on a journey to recover something that was taken. The only way they can find it, is with the Oracle’s help. Morpheus gets the shock of his life when he realizes…..

….he and CiCi are Fated!

With CiCi being a prisoner, what will happen?

In Dream Magic, you are reunited with the characters that we fell in love with in Strange Magic. Thyme, Billy, Arla, and Shane!

Michelle Mankin did a phenomenal job with her world building. I was all consumed with this book, the unique story line, and the characters. I fell in love all over again with the previous characters and fell just as hard for the new characters I was introduced to (CiCi, Amelia, Fiori, Stone). Dream Magic had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I had to know what was going to happen next! I didn’t put it down until I was finished! I was left with my mouth hanging open and a wtf expression on my face I’m sure cause……I DID NOT see that coming! I need the next book like, now!

Michelle as a beautiful talent for writing unique stories with romance, and twists and turns that will leave you breathless and begging for more! I can’t wait to see what stories she dreams up next for her readers! I can’t wait!

5starlips.jpg

5 Magically Thrilling Stars!!!

Dream Magic1

synopsis.jpg

The dreamscape is a place of magic and mystery and meaning. In that nocturnal realm, ideas, images, sensations and emotions drift on the currents of the unconscious mind.
Morpheus the Dream Falcon is most at home in that domain. By night, the one of a kind winged immortal soars on those winds, observing and sometimes even entering the slumbering thoughts of another. By day, he is a highly sought after mercenary feared by his immortal kin for both his unmatched ferocity and his wicked obsidian talons. None of his prey escapes him.
Cecilia Ramirez y Aguilera is the one he truly wants. But the striking oracle of the Court of the Light Immortals is closed to the handsome outlaw, even in her dreams. Broken by unimaginable losses, the seer is but a slave, subject to the whims of a master who is mad and without mercy.
Drawn together by fate, their impossible passion ignites. But will that be enough given the dangerous secrets each keeps from the other? Or will mistrust and the desire for revenge threaten to unravel the powerful magic that binds them?

Review Graphic

Romance. Action. Angst. Strange Magic had it all, and more! I loved this book! As soon as I began reading it, I was completely immersed in the story line. Michelle Mankin is phenomenal author. Her words made me feel as if I were there with the characters. It was like I was watching a wonderful movie that I didn’t want to end!

Thyme Bellrose is a beautiful young woman, raised by her grandmother most of her life. She lived a quiet life working in their ice cream shop, helping out neighbors, and dating the love of her life. She was just a normal girl

….or so she thought.

Billy Blade is a sexy famous musician. He lives his days playing music, drowning his sorrows in a bottle of whisky and having random girls warm his bed at night. He has a supernatural gift that scares him and he doesn’t think anyone will believe him.

Both Thyme and Billy are tortured souls for very different reasons.

When they finally meet, it’s beyond obvious that they are meant for each other.

….but how can that be, when Thyme is……a Ghost?!?

This story was packed with so much action, romance, and twists and turns that I couldn’t put it down. It was a phenomenal read and I can’t wait to see what Michelle Mankin will deliver next!

Strange Magic2

5 Magical Stars!!!

synopsis.jpg

Billy Blade is a hardworking, hard living, razor sharp musical force. Mysterious behind his dark shades, the rough around the edges Texan mesmerizes with his haunting harmonica and tantalizes with his dangerous looks and smooth country charm. His latest album is topping the charts. He’s the newly crowned King of the Bacchus Krewe. He’s definitely living the rock star dream.
Exotic Creole beauty Thyme Bellerose couldn’t be more content. She has it all. An adoring grandmother. A handsome Tulane medical student beau. A satisfying job in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Her life is as rich as the ice cream she creates. She’s got everything under control.
But control is an illusion. Dreams can turn into nightmares. And now during Mardi Gras, otherworldly powers stand ready to shape their destinies in ways they could never imagine.
Shadow and light. Magic and mystery. Reality and myth. All come together in a place where rules bend and lines blur. Even those between life and death.

Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

A fun read! With sweet romance, angst, hot brothers, a feisty southern belle, and two adorable giant dogs! Ahhh I loved this book! What can I say? This is a story of hate turned love! It was wonderful! Probst had me flipping page after page to find out what would happen! I couldn’t put it down! Forget Property Brothers; give me Pierce Brothers!

Cal Pierce has been running Pierce Brother’s Construction alongside his dad for as long as he can remember. He and his brothers have been estranged, not speaking for 5 years, after unfortunate circumstances occurred. His fathers passing brings them all back together. Why? Because their unloving, likes to have the last laugh and word, father put the stipulation in the will: no one will get Pierce Brother’s unless they all agree to work together. One year working together. One year living under the same roof. Tension and emotions run high between these insanely hot brothers. Can they fix what broke their bond in the past?

Morgan Raines is a sexy, feisty southern belle. She’s a professional interior design consultant to famous people. She is the point of contact between builder and client when they want a house built and she has never failed at delivering the perfect house, with the perfect design to her clients. When the “darlings of Hollywood” hire her to build them a house in Harrington, she has to have the best construction company around! That company……Pierce Brother’s Construction!

When Cal turns down her job offer, it doesn’t deter Morgan. She’s dead set on getting what she wants. She’ll do anything, even manipulation.

I truly loved Everywhere and Every Way. It’s a wonderful start to the Billionaire Builders series and I can’t wait for the next release! The gradual growth of respect and then love between Cal and Morgan was heartwarming. Probst nailed it with this book!

Review – Wednesday by Kendall Ryan 


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wednesday is a sweet, smoldering, and spellbinding story of second chance love that hits your heart like a hurricane—hard and unexpected—where you’re flowing in feels. Body blazing. Heart hurting. Soul searing. Your body melts but the heart does too…maybe more. Kendall Ryan has written a story that smells like sex and sin, but its core is so much more. Wednesday is a sweet surprise, one that’s a breathtakingly beautiful story of love against the odds.

When I first saw the scorching cover and read the synopsis for Wednesday, I could not wait to dive into this erotic adventure. So steamy that panties would be tossed immediately because they would not be necessary due to too many changes required. 

Then I saw Wednesday’s warning: 

“Proceed at your own risk.” 

Warnings are automatic must-reads, and I want to read Wednesday ten times more. This warning made me contemplate seeking the hubby for a little read-along, a deliciously dirty date where I may even blush.

Despite the super sexy cover, synopsis, and heated warning, I was WRONG. Off-the-charts incorrect. My romance radar: EPIC FAIL. Wednesday is so utterly unexpected. Oh, and that warning of a risk? It’s not merely a risk about high-octane-super-steamy-sexy sex. The big risk is to your heart, as it will bend and perhaps break.

The pleasantly unpredictable Wednesday tore into me like a Saturday, full of life and love, and I LOVED IT! This story is full of sweetness born from a love so pure and one stemmed from childhood. The kind of special, once-in-a-lifetime love that lasts for an eternity. Wednesday touched me like a sweet and sappy Nicholas Sparks story but with lots of steam.

Chloe and Shaw were childhood best friends and secret crushes who grew apart. 

“I taught him to climb trees and catch lizards, and he taught me how to kiss.”

When Shaw loses his wife in a tragedy, he seeks out his best friend to ease the pain. Though instead of wanting her friendship, it’s her body he wants to use as a vessel to forget. Dull the ache. Feel good for a little while. 

“Chloe was the golden-haired little girl I’d taught to fish…the first girl I kissed…my best friend since I was a little kid—and now she was my f**k toy.” 

Beautiful, blue-eyed and blonde-haired, Chloe, will do anything for her best friend, despite the distance between them for the past few years where they grew apart. Even if the ‘anything’ is giving her body to a man, her best friend, who needs her physically to snuff out his emotional pain. 

“I wanted him to heal. I wanted him to be okay. And for those few hours every week, if he could lose himself in me, I was only too happy to oblige.”

 For Shaw, those Wednesday sex sessions with Chloe are everything, even if just a temporary fix. 

“She was so tempting, so sweet, and [dang] if I could resist her. She quieted the cloudy discontent that swirled in my brain. It wasn’t a question of desire. It was a need.”

For Chloe, these hot Wednesday romps mean someone is showering her with attention for once. 

“For those few hours, I mattered to someone.”

 Chloe’s best friend and crush wants HER. Needs her. However, like air to breathe, the physical intimacy is vital to her too. 

“He was my drug. Bold. Intoxicating. Addictive.”


They are bound to each other by friendship and physical desire that is hovering close to more.

These words…I’m swooning…HARD.

“I need you, Chloe.”


“So have me,”
I whispered to him.

The more Chloe gives Shaw her body, the less she feels she is healing him and the more she is losing herself. Hurting both of them. Playing with fire where she is starting to get burned.

“Our flings had crossed into a gray area that where instead of feeling like I was helping him heal, it felt like he was merely using me.”


Shaw thinks he is damaged goods. Only good for the physical connection. Emotionally broken. A bad choice for Chloe who deserves better than the monster he thinks he has become. 

“I wondered if she saw me for what I really was—the villain in our twisted story.”


The lines are blurred between protecting the heart versus throwing caution to the wind. The dark past and guilt keep looming like a thunder clouds and tornadoes of torture. Chloe must protect herself from getting hurt as she falls harder for the best friend and lover she will never call hers. 

“It wasn’t healthy to get my hopes up about something that could never be. He was my friend. And he was still grieving. And in twenty-plus years of knowing each other, he’d never expressed any romantic feelings for me.”

 What a sensational surprise! Wednesday is sweetness and sorrow wrapped in a sexy package tied together with hope. Kendall Ryan’s spur-of-the-moment story may be little in size but is big in emotion. Wednesday is heart, hope, and healing. Wednesday is the life and love of Saturday. Wednesday is what you must meet for it is simply brilliant, beautiful and breathtaking, a story that is not what you expect but so much more. You’ll leave this tale that twists itself around your heart wanting more too.

Hard core fucking.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It’d be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. Dark delicious fucking. But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

Dual Review Finding Me & Always You by Stephanie Rose

Finding MeFinding Me Cover

Review Graphic

Sweet, sexy, and endearing….this book was exactly what I hoped for and more! Stephanie Rose has done it again! She blew me away with Bella and Owen’s story. At first I was like “Oh no!” Do I want to see the sweet little Bella all grown up? Can my eyes handle knowing what “grown up” Bella will be doing? Cause in my eyes, she was still that sweet, just coming out of her shell, beautiful little 5 year old. The answer? YES! Yes I did want it! I loved this story, and completely fell in love with Bella, Lucas and Sam’s characters all over again. I definitely fell in love with Owen *swoon* so hard.

Bella has turned out to be as beautiful as her mother, strong, and smart! After a series of unfortunate events and rumors by twatwaffles being spread about her at school, she decides to go to college farther away from home. She didn’t want to deal with the humiliation.

…which, hello!? Turned out great for her, because she not only met Owen, she met her awesome roomy, Laura.

Owen is a hockey player. He’s a sexy Georgia boy with a southern drawl that will leaving you swooning! His sweet southern charm is every girls dream!

                          “You’re my stars, my sun, and my sky. You’re my whole damn universe.”

Owen’s seemingly cocky attitude leaves a bad taste in Bella’s mouth. She tries to deny her attraction to him, while Owen tries to break down her walls. He wants to show Bella who he really is. Not who everyone else says and thinks he is.

“I’m not going anywhere. I’m yours, whether or not you choose to believe that right now. And you will. I don’t quit easily, and when it comes to you, I don’t quit at all.”

“I tasted every part of her last night and I still hadn’t gotten enough–I couldn’t This girl was my drug, and I had an incurable addiction.”

*SWOOOOOON* who wouldn’t want someone to say such sweet and beautiful things to them!

I loved everything about this story! I loved Owen and Bella. I loved that we get to see Lucas and Sam again throughout the book. I even love the tension because in the end, it brought them so much closer together and showed how much love can conquer. I loved the “secrets” because in the end, you realize when you love someone and when you have a family that loves you, they’ll stick by you no matter what. They’ll always have your back and be there to protect you.

Finding me can be read as a standalone, but you do (like I said earlier) get to visit with characters from Always You. I highly recommend reading Always You, because it was just as phenomenal as Finding Me! This book was beautiful, sweet, and refreshing! I loved every second of this wonderfully written story. I couldn’t put it down! I can’t wait to see what Stephanie has in up her sleeve for her fans next!

When an unwanted ghost comes knocking on my door, my heartbreaking history threatens to repeat itself. But where do I turn if I lose everyone? And how do I find where I belong, when I’m still Finding Me?

Combustible, Scorching, Sweet, and Pulls at your Heart Strings. Always You is a Second Chance Romance. It’s a story about love, loss, reconnection, and friendship. Heartbreakingly Beautiful, Stephanie definitely wowed me with these character and the story line!

Samantha and Lucas met in College. They became close friends, but Samantha wanted more. She had been crushing on him since the day she met him. Lucas was a “known” playboy. Never settling down with a girlfriend. The last night Sam see’s Lucas, is at his going away party. She tells him goodbye and he walks out of her life to begin his career in another city.

6 years go by and a friend request pops up on Facebook. This friend request sets in motion numerous “friendly” get-together’s that quickly turn romantic. The sexual tension between these two is so hot……it’s explosive! I couldn’t help but root for Sam and Lucas to get their HEA!

       “I never stopped being yours. I’ll always belong to you. No matter how stupid you are.”

This book had so much feeling in it. The characters and story line completely captivated me. I was so emerced in Sam and Lucas’ story that I was flipping page after page until I reached the end! This was my first book by Stephanie Rose and she left me in complete, and utter blissful happiness! This will definitely not be my last book by this author. I am now, and forever will be……a Stephanie Rose fan!

Dual Review: Fallacy & Irrefutable by Kimberly Bracco

IrrefutableCover1Irrefutable Banner

Review Graphic

Heartbreakingly beautiful, sizzling hot, angsty–Irrefutable is all of these things and oh, so much more! This story had my emotions all out of whack at moments and then I’d feel all happy, swoony, or hot and bothered the next. Irrefutable is the conclusion of Alex and Quinn’s story. I was dying to get my hands on this ever since I finished reading Fallacy which left me breathless and begging for more with that cliffy!

This book picks up right where Fallacy left off. Quinn is planning a wedding. A wedding to a man who she isn’t in love with.

Alex is distraught. He can’t bare to see Quinn with another man’s ring on her finger.

Quinn has a difficult decision to make. Does she marry Jordan and be miserable? Or does she say no and ruin her career?

The connection is still so blatantly, obviously there between them.

“Just touching her, in the simplest of ways, starts a fire deep within my soul. A fire that only burns for her. A fire that hasn’t been lit in a very long time.”

This book pulls at your heart strings. These characters go through so much turmoil and heartbreak. Alex’s never wavering support of Quinn, regardless of her marrying someone else, is completely endearing. He’s there for her no matter what.

Quinn is stubborn as hell. With her being messed up from her childhood, she still refuses to acknowledge how much Alex loves her.

In Irrefutable you see Quinn and Alex grow by leaps and bounds. Not only personally, for themselves, but also in their relationship.

They learn to build a trust that is unbreakable. An unbreakable bond. They learn to give in to certain things, but never give up.

“After all the pain and struggle, I finally feel whole. The bond between us is irrefutable.”

I truly loved being in Alex and Quinn’s world. Their snarky banter had me laughing with (sometimes at) them. It felt like they had become friends of mine in real life. I’ll miss them for sure. I’ll have to pick them back up one day just to visit them.

Bracco did a phenomenal job, not only with Irrefutable, but also with Fallacy. She brought the characters to life with her beautiful and unique writing. I can’t wait to see what she has to offer up to the world next!

FallacyCover1Review Graphic

Heart-pounding, steamy, angst, edge-of-your seat!…this is how I felt while reading Fallacy. This book had me so wound up flipping page after page wanting to see what happens next! Bracco delivered an phenomenal book that left me begging for more!

Quinn knows what she wants. She’s a beautiful, strong, independent woman who’s dead set on making CEO of her company and pushing her father out the door. She doesn’t have time for relationships. She prowls for men at night to satisfy her sexual cravings. One Hello. One Night. One Romp. One Goodbye. That’s all these poor men ever get from the career focused Quinn.

Alex is your typical man whore. He’s sexy beyond belief. He’s smart and he’s successful in his career. He’s not looking for a relationship. He fills his bed with meaningless sex and women who’s names they’re lucky if he remembers!

When Quinn and Alex’s worlds collide, they were both looking for the same thing. What they always look for. A one time romp in the sack with a hot sexy body. What neither realized at the time, was that one time together, would ruin each other for anybody else.

Alex is determined to win Quinn over. He wants her and no one else.

Quinn has a past. A past that has made her afraid. Afraid of relationships….afraid of commitment….afraid of trusting men.

Alex is kind and caring. He’s patient with Quinn because he knows something is holding her back. He doesn’t know what it is. Quinn gradually starts trusting Alex more and more. He can read her emotions like an open book. He always knows just what to say or what to do to keep her calm. Everything between them is going great…..until her greatest fear and her father rears their ugly heads and she breaks things off with him.

Alex tries talking to her. Tries to figure out what made her scared enough to run from him. She avoids him at all costs though. Seeing no other choice, Alex takes a job he was offered in Arizona.

Determined to keep on the track she’s been on for her career, Quinn goes back to her previous ways of “hit it and quit it”. No emotions. No second hook-ups. No man will get in her way of taking of her fathers company. She was finally on the right track.

Or so she thought.

2 years pass and Alex is returning to his home state. To his friends……to Quinn. Maybe? Hopefully? When he returns, he finds something he never imagined. Quinn is engaged to someone else. She’s changed. She’s not the same girl he left. He doesn’t recognize her and neither do their friends. She’s become the one thing she’s always hated. A cliché.

Will Alex find a way to change her mind? Will he be able to win her back?

Or will Quinn marry someone else and not give him a second thought?

Holy Wow! This book ended with a cliffhanger that had me spinning! Fallacy was hypnotic! It captivated me from page one until the very end! I’m now ecstatic that I don’t have to wait for Irrefutable to be released! I don’t think I could handle the turmoil going through Quinn and Alex that I was left with!

Fallacy2

5starlips.jpg

5 Hypnotic Stars!!!!!

synopsis.jpg

It was only supposed to be one night. One night of hot, no-strings-attached sex.

But what happens when one night turns into two years? Two of the best years of their lives… until it wasn’t.

Quinn Taylor doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters. Her heart hardened by the past. Despite Quinn’s inability to trust, Alex Conway knows there’s something worth fighting for.

Alex makes Quinn question everything she’s ever believed to be true about men. She doesn’t want to let him in but there’s no denying he’s under her skin.

Just when Alex thinks he’s broken down her walls, Quinn runs, breaking his heart, and he has no idea why.

After two long years without closure, Alex has finally had enough of wondering what went wrong. He’s determined to win Quinn back. The only problem… she’s engaged to someone else.

Can Alex figure out how to win back the love of his life before she breaks both their hearts irrevocably? Will Quinn realize that everything she’s ever believed is all a fallacy?

***While this series can be read without reading The Uninhibited Series, it is a spin-off that contains spoilers for the first series. It is suggested you read Inhibitions, Unrestricted and Freed first.***
