My Review!

5 Hot Mafia Stars!

This is my 5th Rachel Van Dyken book and my 5th 5 star 
review for her. To say I am a huge fan is an understatement.
This series is fan freaking tastic. It is so much like reading 
The Sopranos and I friggin love every minute of it. I am 
completely smitten with Nixon.

I started this book off with Flo Rida's tune in my head. "You 
spin my head right round, right round" because I was like, 
why in the hell in Nixon watching Trace with Chase? What? 
It didn't take but just a minute to jump right back in. Elect 
(book 2) picks right up where book 1 left off. It is fantastic!! I
started this book and could not put it down! 

So,..team Chase or Team Nixon? For me, I am Team Nixon. 
Reason? Well You have to read this one and you will find out
that there is a certain someone that I think might just be 
Chase's one. And I think it is going to be fun as hell to read 
about. Nixon is her soul mate, man. You just don't get any 
better than that. But, I lurvvvve Chase. I do, I do. 
Gah, this series is so good. Just go read it. I don't want to 
ruin it!!

Crash Into Me

Crash Into Me
by: Tracy Wolff
Crash Into Me (Shaken Dirty, #1)
 
Blurb:
Jamison Matthews has lusted after Ryder Montgomery since she was a preteen. But now that Ryder and her brother's band, Shaken Dirty, has made it huge, she's just one of many pining for the brooding lead singer. Too bad Ryder still sees her as a little sister. Not that it matters. Her brother would never allow it, and the last thing Jamison wants is to be another notch on a rock star's bed post. Even if it's Ryder's.

Ryder doesn't deserve happiness. After his fame destroyed his last girlfriend, he swore he'd never fall in love again. So when Jamison, the girl he's been in danger of loving for years, joins the band on the road, he'll do anything to deny the sparks between them--even after one hot night together. But Jamison is determined to show Ryder that he's worthy of love--her love--and that she's all grown up and ready to play.
 
*******************************
4 Hot Rockstar Stars!!
*************************
My Review:
 
This is Jamison and Ryder's story. I loved this book. I literally started reading it and devoured it whole. I love me a good rockstar book and was so glad this one didn't dissapoint.

Jamison has been crushing on Ryder for forever. She has watched him and her brother's band grow into the successful band they are now and her crush has grown right along with it. Unfortunately, Jamison is the best friend's sister and totally off limits. Ryder seems to have this under control, but Jamison doesn't. I love Jamison. She is so sweet and sassy and always there for Ryder and I love stories that are about a long time crush and the other person finally "gets it". It worked in a big way.

This book reminds me a lot of Olivia Cunning's style and I couldn't be happier. I loved the side stories going on and the angst and drama. This one was great. If you love your rocker, badass boy stories, don't miss this one.

Before We Fall

Before We Fall (Beautifully Broken #3)
by: Courtney Cole
Before We Fall (Beautifully Broken, #3)
 
Blurb:
Sometimes, one dark moment is all it takes to turn your world black...

For 24-year old Dominic Kinkaide, that moment took place on the night of his high school graduation. One dark incident changed him forever. He's a hardened actor now, famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured in his own. He doesn't care about much of anything, except for losing himself in the roles that he plays.

23-year old Jacey Vincent doesn't realize how much her father's indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn't one specific moment that wrecks a person, but rather it's an absence of moments. She's like a bird with a broken wing-strong yet fragile, as she tries to float through life, finding acceptance in the arms of random guys, one after the other... to fill the void that her father left in her.

Until she meets Dominic.

After jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, his secret and her issues create a dark and damaged energy that will soon turn their attraction to each other into an explosive storm.

Even though when the clouds have cleared and the dust has settled, both of them are almost obliterated... they've learned a priceless lesson.

Sometimes, before we fall... we fly.
 
*******************************************
4.5 Angsty Dominic Stars!!
**********************************
My review:
Wow. This series has got me hooked. If you thought Pax was an asshole, wait until you meet Dom. He is King Asshole. Up until halfway through this book I didn't care for him at all. He was an arrogant womanizer. If you've read the first 2 in this series, you know that this series isn't light hearted. It's based on darkness involving drug addictions, womanizing, dark secrets, etc. Cole has a way to completely consume you once you get started reading and this one was no different. I found myself unable to put this book down until it was over. Even now, I am left reeling and wanting more.

This is just another great read in this series and I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. Way to go, Courtney Cole. Bravo.

Night Moves Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway!! Honk Honk!

Night Moves (G-Man #3)
by: Andrea Smith
Night Moves (G-Man, #3)
 
Blurb:
 
There's a new Alpha in town . . . and he's a Brit!

Darcy Nicole Sheridan, is 22 years-old, beautiful, single, spirited, sexy and - spoiled. She knows that about herself. Raised by wealthy (and doting) parents as an only child, Darcy pretty much coasts through life until her heart was inexplicably broken by her boyfriend, Darin.

To ease the pain, Darcy flies to Belize over the holidays fully intending to wallow in self-pity and distance herself from her ex. Her pity party is short-lived however, after observing a very handsome, very intriguing man on the beach. Darcy becomes the focus of the smokin' hot, wealthy and somewhat mysterious 'E.J.'

Soon she finds herself entangled with an alpha like no other… Her world is rocked by a series of events that will forever change the course of her life, showing her what love is all about; and forcing her to come to terms with hidden sexual pleasures only one man could fulfill…
 
*****************************************
5 Oh My God, Andrea is THE SHIT stars!
********************************
 
My Review:
Well, hell. Andrea Smith can write! That bitch is bad ass! She is by far one of my favorite authors, ever. When I hear she is about ready to release a new book, I get so giddy I can hardly contain myself.
 
This is Darcy's book. After reading G-Man #2, I could not wait for Darcy's book. I was hoping and praying she was next! Darcy is a spoiled, born with a silver spoon in her mouth girl who knows it. That doesn't make me love her any less! She is promised a very good position with her daddy's company, but one day he decides, nope, it's time Miss Darcy learns to earn her keep. He up and sells half the company to Easton.
 
 Easton, aka EJ, is a gorgeous, sexy Brit who can melt your panties right off. Easton is very controlled and doesn't even believe he is capable of love. But, ho ho ho, he is about to meet his match! He is set to mentor Darcy and help her earn her way up. He mentors her alright, in and out of the boardroom. Why, you've got a kinky side there Mr. Easton. Love it!
 
After all this we got going on, guess what else we get. Yes, folks, we finally meet back up with Lindsey and the Rat Bastard. And this meeting will have you on the edge of your seat about ready to gnaw your friggin' nails off!
 
This is truly a smutworthy, award winning book and I cannot wait to see Andrea Smith sky rocket straight to the top. Don't forget the little people, girl! Buy this book!

***************************************
And now.... a little teasy poo for ya!
I awoke with a start; my wrists were painfully sore. Then I remembered. I felt a smile play on my lips as my fingers massaged the tender flesh on one wrist, soothing the skin that had been chaffed by the handcuffs My ankles had been bound together tightly with leather straps which in my mind had been worse but I'd understood the necessity of it. Easton had been about inflicting pain last night, not pleasure. Well that's not altogether true; the pain had brought me pleasure not that he'd intended it to but it had nonetheless.
I snuggled back against him, feeling his arms tighten protectively around me. He was stirring and I knew he hadn't slept well last night. He'd tossed and turned, repositioning himself a half dozen times around me asking me if I was okay. I knew he'd been apprehensive about how I'd react to my punishment; concerned that he'd crossed the line with me or maybe with himself, but I'd leapt across that line, hands and feet bound tightly together into his world of discipline and respect and I understood the rules now; I comprehended this man.
I rolled over to face him, looking up into his smoldering gray eyes that were studying me intently. Was he concerned I'd flee from his bed? Not a chance. I was still naked beneath his sheets. I could still feel his cum dripping from me. My God! We'd fucked most of the night - after the punishment had been dispensed with that is. I'd never been with a man that had a sexual appetite comparable to Easton's. It was as if he'd been on a mission to bury himself in me, and despite my reddened behind and sore wrists and ankles, I hadn't wanted him to stop.  
He lowered his mouth to mine, kissing my lips softly.

Recipe for Attraction

Recipe for Attraction (Madewood Brothers #2)
by: Gina Gordon
Recipe for Attraction (Madewood Brothers, #2)
 
Blurb:
Bad boy Neil Harrison may have sexy body and an even sexier smile, but there’s no way in hell architect Carson Kelly is falling for the elusive bachelor. For starters, he’s her boss, and getting intimately involved with the infuriating alpha male could be a career-killer. And secondly, he’s battling personal demons in one of the most dangerous ways possible: illegal street racing. After a friend’s tragic death years ago, Carson swore she’d never get involved in that life again.

Neil knows Carson’s keeping secrets and he’s determined to uncover all of them…even if he has to seduce them out of her. But as their antagonistic work relationship ignites a passionate affair, Carson must decide if protecting Neil from his need for speed is the perfect outlet for her own restless desire, or if they’re on a one-way path to destruction.
 
****************************
4 Solid Hot Madewood Boys Stars!!
************************************************
 
I absolutely loved this book! You can totally count on the Brazen series to give you a hot, sexy read. I literally devoured this book. I could not get enough. Neil is a broody, obnoxious, stubborn, son of a b*tch and I love it! Carson is a badass biker chick who knows exactly how to handle Neil. While they should not be involved since Neil is basically her boss, the attraction is too strong and they cannot fight it.
 
Carson has her hands full trying to prevent Neil from street racing and her methods are hot as hell! She's basically using sex as a way to keep Neil from potentially harming himself. This book is full of drama and angst and will give you heartburn, for sure. But, it is oh so good!
 
I didn't read book 1 of the series, but I am definitely going back to now. Those Madewood boys are hot! This is definitely a series to keep my eye on!

Searching for Someday

Searching for Someday

Searching for Someday (Searching For, #1)
 
Blurb:
Kate has given up on love—at least for herself. She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people—a gift that her family passed down for generations. When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.

But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself. Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love. Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love...only to find herself falling for him along the way.
 
******************************
4 Kinnections Stars!!
*********************
My Review:
You want to know something about Jennifer Probst? Let me tell you. You can rest assured that when you pick up a book by this author, she is going to deliver. This one did not disappoint.
 
My first book by Jennifer Probst was one of the ones from the Marriage to a Billionaire series. I love how we get little snippets from that series in this book. This is Kate's story. Kate has her own Matchmaking company and uses her "gift" to find the perfect match for others. As for finding romance for herself, she lives by Sweet Brown's motto, "ain't nobody got time for that!"
 
Well, she didn't have time for that until we meet Slade. Sexy smexy Slade. I mean, with a name like that, what do you expect? Slade storms in on a mission to prove the business is a scam and to protect his not so vulnerable sister dearest. In order to prove it's not a scam, Kate has to find Slade's match. Bet you never will guess who his match is!
 
Ha, you have to read to see. This book is just another great addition from Jennifer Probst. I already can't wait for the next one from her.

Working It Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway!!

Working It (Love by Design #1)
by: Kendall Ryan
 
Blurb:
Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City’s fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the notorious Fiona Stone is a nightmare, but there’s one distinct perk: ogling the ridiculously hot male models who parade through the office—particularly rising star Ben Shaw.

Ben is everything Emmy’s not: exquisitely gorgeous, highly paid, and well-traveled. He’s also got more issues than Vogue. Emmy looks after Ben on photo shoots, but she refuses to become another one of his lusting groupies. Ben finds Emmy’s refreshingly real attitude to be surprisingly attractive.

Against a backdrop of the most fashionable cities in the world, casual flirting turns into an illicit affair, but when Ben’s twisted past is revealed, and the bitter Fiona catches wind of their relationship, their careers and hearts are threatened.


Note: This book is intended for mature audiences. It contains sexual encounters and graphic language, including a m/f/m encounter.
 
*******************************
My Review: 4.5 Sexy Smexy Stars!
******************************
I really, really enjoyed this book. It's probably my favorite Kendall Ryan book so far. First off, the cover is amazeballs, but we expected nothing less from this author.
 
I really liked Emmy. She is a sweet and down to earth southern girl trying to make it in the Big Apple with a bitch of a boss in a The Devil Wears Prada sort of way-ish. She is going along doing her best when she gets  a full eye of one Ben Shaw.
 
Ben is it. He's one of the top models and finds himself swooning over Emmy. Problem is, Fiona has her hooks in him. He tries to fight his feelings for Emmy, but it's no use.  Once they all go off to Europe, the shit hits the fan. This book is hot. The scene with Brayden....uhh someone get me a fan.
 
Be sure to grab this one, ladies. I think it's Kendall's best work yet!!

Undeniable

Undeniable
by: Shannon Richard
 
Blurb:
THEIR LOVE WAS UNDENIABLE
Grace King knows two things for certain: she loves working at her grandmother's café and she loves the hunky town sheriff. She always has. As she bakes him sweet treats, Grace fantasizes about helping him work up an appetite all night long. But whenever she thinks she's finally getting somewhere, he whips out some excuse to escape. Growing up, he never looked twice at her. Now Grace won't rest until she has Jax's undivided attention.

Jaxson Anderson can't deny that his best friend's kid sister is the sexiest woman in Mirabelle, Florida. Unwilling to burden Grace with his painful past, Jax keeps the sassy blonde at arm's length. Yet one heated kiss crumbles all of his carefully built defenses. But when a town secret surfaces, threatening to destroy everything they believe in, can the man who defended Grace from bullies as a child protect her now?
 
 
******************************************************
4 Let's Hear it for Friends to Lovers Stories
******************************************
My Review:
 
4 Good, Solid stars from me. I absolutely adored this book. It was such a pleasant surprise. I love Grace and Jax! They are just so darn cute together. What's not to love about a friends turn lovers book? They totally make the best romances!

This book is sweet, cute, funny, and down right addicting. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down! This is my first Shannon Richard book and will not be my last. This is book 2 in a series, but it is definitely okay as a stand-alone. I haven't read book 1 yet, and in no way did I feel like I missed anything. I am, however, going back to read book 1.

Jax about drove me up the wall with his self doubting! Poor Grace, she never doubted and stayed right there and took it like a woman until he was finally able to admit it to himself. I like the secondary story going on with the burglary and thefts. It really added that extra drama to the story to keep it going.

Really good book and glad I stumbled across this author. I like her writing style!!

Honk Honk! Thief Blog Tour Stop!

 
Blurb:
Note to Self

Love is patient; love is kind.
Love doesn't boast or brag.
There's no arrogance in love;
it's never rude, crude, or indecent-it's not self absorbed.
Love isn't easily upset.
Love doesn't tally wrongs.
Love trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what.
Love will never become obsolete.
I'll fight for her.

Thief


Caleb Drake never got over his first love. Not when he got married. Not when she got married. When life suddenly comes full circle Caleb must decide how how far he is willing to go to get the aloof and alluring Olivia Kaspen back. But for every action in life there is a consequence, and soon Caleb finds out that sometimes love comes at an unbearably high price.
 
***************************************
5 Holy Shit I need a nerve pill stars!!
*********************************
My Review:
 
First of all, I cannot stop thinking about Pink's song when I think of this book. Honestly, for me, it about sums this book up:
 
Right from the start
You were a Thief, you stole my heart
And I, your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch
You fixed
 
Just give a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
 
 
This book was phenomenal. Tarryn Fisher has a knack for frustrating the ever loving shit out of her readers...in the best way possible, I mean :)
 
I sat through this book so frustrated and I wanted to scream and shot and let it all out. I am so, so glad we got Caleb's point of view. I absolutely adore him now. I loved him before, but I just wasn't 100% sure of his love. There is no doubt now. Also, this book just confirmed even more that I despise Leah's dirty red ass. She is a cunt, plain and simple. Dragging Stella in it was just lower than low. She is a thief, herself!
 
I absolutely hated to see this book end, but honestly, I am not sure my nerves could've taken any more. This book is phenomenal, ladies! If you haven't read it, I highly recommend stopping everything you are doing and getting started on book 1.
 
Here's the reading order:
The Opportunist (Love Me With Lies, #1)Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies, #2)Thief (Love Me With Lies, #3)
 
Here's a little teaser for you:
“What is it, Caleb? You’re scaring me.” “I need to talk to you about something,” I tried again. “I need to talk to my mother about something. Can you do that without being…” “Bitchy?” she offered. I nodded. “Should I be afraid?” I stood up and walked to the window, looking out at her precious roses. She had every shade of pink and red. It was a mess of thorns and color. I didn’t like roses. They reminded me of the women in my life; beautiful and bright, but if you touched them they made you bleed. “Olivia is getting married today. I need you to talk me out of going to the church and stopping her.” The only indication that she’d heard me was the slight expansion of white around her irises. She opened her mouth and then abruptly closed it. “I’ll take that as your blessing.” I strode toward the door. My mother jumped up and blocked me. She was pretty stealthy in heels. “Caleb, honey … nothing good can come out of that. You and Olivia are-” “Don’t say it.” “Over,” she finished. “That was my non-bitchy version.” I grimaced. “It’s not over for me.” “It’s obviously over for her. She’s getting married.” She reached up and cupped my face in her hands. “I’m so sorry you’re hurting.” I didn’t say anything. She sighed and pulled me down on the couch to sit next to her. “I’m going to put aside my extreme dislike for that girl and tell you something that you might find useful.” I listened. If she was putting aside her dislike, I potentially had mind-blowing advice coming my way. “Three things,” she said, patting my hand. “It’s okay that you love her. Don’t stop. If you turn your feelings off for her, you might turn everything off. That’s not good. Second, don’t wait for her. You have to live your life — you have a baby on the way.” She smiled at me sadly as I waited for the grand finale. “And finally … wait for her.” She laughed at the confused expression on my face. “Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you. Love is mean, but it’s good. It keeps us alive. If you need her, then wait. But, right now she’s getting married. It’s her day and you can’t ruin it.” Love is mean. I loved my mom — especially when she wasn’t being a bitch.

Switch It On

Switch it On
by: J.H. Craig
Switch It On (Switch Stories)
 
Blurb:
Warning: This is an adult book, discussing adult themes. If you are not an adult, or have ever
referred to your fun zone as "down there", this is probably not the book for you! Contained herein are graphic descriptions of sex, bondage, discipline,dominance and submission, and the language is honest, not sugar-coated. You'll find fetishes with which you may be unfamiliar, including Mommy-son play, and
forniphilia (using people as furniture). You'll find dirty talk, crude language,and lapses into the poetical. There is also brief mention of mental illness and medication for same. Oh, and love. You'll find that, too. I wish I'd been
warned it would come up! If it were a movie, Switch It On would definitely have to be rated NC-17.


Working as a Dominant at The Basement, I could tell you some stories! None of them are as twisted as the one I'm going to share with you. You see, Miss Madeline's got a secret.

It would surprise my clients, those who pay me to dominate them. It would surprise Ian, my sleazy boss, who loves to cheat me out of my pay and handle the help, if I let him get away with it. It would surprise my assistant, Trey, who desperately wants and needs my protection. It would surprise Murray, the scummy promoter who profits from my creative efforts in my fetish shows.

The only one not surprised? The one who holds the secret, my lover, artist Jason Merrin. He knows I don't always need to be the boss, that when I come home, sometimes it's the last thing I want. He can step up and keep me in line whenever I need it.

But when Ian threatens Trey with termination, I have to make a decision. I can't stand by and let Trey submit to this sexual harassment. Can I offer Trey my protection? And what will Jason have to say about it? Find out in Switch It On!

4 I love it when a book starts with a warning Stars!!
**********************************************
 
My Review
First off, when a book starts with a warning, my blood gets pumping! Wow, what a spicy little quick read! This book was short, sweet, and to the point and I loved it. I normally shy away from shorts reads because I am more of a full-length novel kind of girl. When the author contacted me to possibly review this book, I had to do it. I am so glad I did!

This is my first J.H. Craig book and it will not be my last. The book was well written and seriously steamy. I am not a hard-core BDSM lover, and luckily this one had a story line with it. It was like soft BDSM. :)

If you like this kind of thing, give it a try. Be sure to keep an open mind, as you will need it! Great read!!

Broken Beauty

Broken Beauty (#1 Broken Beauty Novella)
by: Chloe Adams
Broken Beauty (Broken Beauty Novellas #1)
 
Blurb:
**Contains graphic content and the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath. Not intended for teens under the age of 18.**

Sometimes bad things happen to beautiful people.

When socialite party girl Mia Abbott-Renou wakes up in a garden she has little recall of the previous night -- except that she is naked...hurt...terrified. Not only has she been raped, but she knows one of her assailants: the son of a wealthy politician who happens to be her own father’s political ally.

Mia wants and needs justice. Except this privileged boy has an alibi and her father forbids her from going to the police. It’s a critical election year, one that his party might lose if his image as a doting father is soured due to Mia being labeled a lush or worse, promiscuous.

Devastated at not having the support of her family, Mia finds herself in a tug-of-war with her conscience over what to do, especially since she can’t remember exactly what happened that night. Worse, the men who attacked her have hurt several other girls, and Mia may be the key to stopping them.

Mia tries to forget, until the unthinkable happens, and she’s left reeling once again, faced with a new challenge that will force her to take more control of her life.

My Review:
Oh my God. This book ripped my heart out and smashed it. Wow. This book is just, wow! I adore Mia. I just wanted to reach in and hold her. What she went through was horrific. And for her parents to not be there and be more worried about their status than their daughter. And for her to be so young. I had tears in my eyes for most of the book.
 
I think I need a drink after this book. And I definitely need more. I can't wait for the next one. I can't imagine what the author must have went through even writing the book. My heart reaches out. Great book!

An old flame rekindled . . .

Zara Cinders always knew Ham Reece was the one, but he wasn't interested in settling down. When she found someone who was, Ham walked out of her life. Three years later, Zara's lost her business, her marriage, and she's barely getting by in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. As soon as Ham hears about Zara's plight, he's on her doorstep offering her a lifeline. Now, it will take every ounce of will power she possesses to resist all that he offers.

Ham was always a traveling man, never one to settle down in one town, with one woman, for more time than absolutely necessary. But Ham's faced his own demons, and he's learned a lot. About himself, and about the life he knows he's meant to live. So when he hears that Zara's having a rough time, he wants to be the one to help. In fact, he wants to do more than that for Zara. A lot more. But first, he must prove to Zara that he's a changed man.

My Review
 
This one gets a good, solid 4.5 stars from me. I am a HUGE KA fan and have loved every thing I have read of hers. I can't say that this one is my favorite, but it is definitely a great book and will be added to my reread pile over and over!

I was so stoked to receive my very first KA ARC! Thanks so much to Netgalley and KA herself!

I don't want to give any details on the book and spoil it for anyone, so I'll keep this short. Ever since we met that gorgeous, sweet Reece in Feb's book, I could not wait to get his story. It's amazing how even though his role was small in that book, KA gets you hooked. This one did not let me down. I feel like it was classic KA, and I see others b*tching because it is, saying she's predictable, yada yada. Well, it's her style and for me personally, I LOVE it! I wish we would've seen some of my faves from the series, but I was happy with what I got. I love catching up with my KA gang!

Loved it and I cannot wait until the next KA book comes out! Keep 'em coming, girl!

Tempting the Cowboy by Elizabeth  Otto
 
Blurb:
 
After taking a job on a quiet Montana dude ranch, ex-cop Rylan Frederickson finds herself surrounded by unbelievably sexy cowboys. Too bad the one she wants is her boss...and the single dad of a four-year-old. It doesn’t matter anyway, because after a recent tragedy, there’s simply no more room in her heart.

Letting a new woman into their life is the last thing Cole Haywood wants for him and his daughter, Birdie. But as Rylan’s presence at Paint River Ranch breathes new life into his family he can’t ignore his growing attraction.

When the sparks between them turn into fireworks in bed, Rylan’s torn between the family she’s lost and the one she may have found. Now she must decide if something that feels this good is worth the risk.
********************************************
4 Save a horse, ride a Cowboy Stars!!
*************************
My review:

I really enjoyed reading this book. This is one of those that once you start, you can't stop until the whole darn book is over. I love Rylan. Thank God I have never experienced the loss of a child, but I can only begin to imagine the pain a mother must go through. I felt my heart breaking over and over with every interaction with Birdie. Poor thing.

Cole. Um, yum. What is not to love about a sexy, broody, did I mention sexy cowboy. He doesn't want another woman. He is too dang busy and has been too burned to even thing about going there, but there is something about Rylan that he can't let go of.

Birdie, oh goodness. I heart her. She is just beautiful!

Man oh man, is this a good book! Towards the end, with the incident with Birdie and Rylan, I cried my eyes out. I mean hiccuping, ugly splotchy face, tears. The way Rylan handled it, ugh. What a man! I wanted to punch him so badly.

Such a good book!! I got my eye on you Elizabeth Otto ;)

  Blurb:
 
Can't Let Go is a PREQUEL novella to Hard to Handle, a "before" the happily ever after...

A LOVE IN THE BALANCE NOVELLA

AN INSTANT SPARK
Sadie Howard would never admit there's such a thing as love at first sight, but she can't deny the connection between her and sexy Adonis Aiden Downey. She also can't deny she loves to kiss him-his mouth might be his most precious asset. Despite every promise to herself not to get involved any deeper than a first date, she can't keep from seeing more of Aiden . . . in more ways than one.

Aiden Downey had no idea the hot blonde from the club would trigger his protective, gentle nature, but the moment she drops her guard and he sees the real Sadie Howard, he's a goner. When a family crisis puts the brakes on their budding romance, can Aiden find a way to hold on to her? Or will he lose the best thing in his life just as quickly as he found her?

My Review:
 
So, I read Hard to Handle and lurved it! I fell completely in love with Sadie and Aidan, but I kept wishing I knew the whole story of what happened to them. Of course I know it was to care for his mom, but I just wanted more. Well, lo and behold, I had completely missed this little nugget here. Now, stuff makes sense. This is the novella that starts it all for Sadie and Aiden and it is hawt! Loved it!

I am now a huge fan of Jessica's and I can't wait to read more from her

Seducing the Enemy
 
Blurb:
After being injured in a tragic accident as a child, Marietta Edwards has lived a sheltered life. Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures that are entirely new to her, so she begins by seducing a sexy, mysterious stranger. Only after their one-night stand does she learn their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle and the man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.

The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison Damon believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta in Monte Carlo is just a fling, an escape from his responsibilities. Then he discovers she is an Edwards—the family he despises most. He can’t quench his attraction for her, but he won’t let her use it against him. He won’t let her manipulate him to win money from his family. No matter how much he wants her, he won’t let her seduce him again.

4 Solid Can I have Andrew since Harrison is taken Stars!
************************
My Review:
 
First of all, I devoured this book. Once I got started, there was no stopping. I absolutely adored Marietta. I adored her innocence and strength and wit. And Harrison. Ahh, swoon! Yes, I am swooning. Whether you are climbing the mountain in a tux or just there in casual clothes. Yum! I understood his reluctance to trust Marietta after he found out who she was. You know how it is, once bitten, twice shy. This was a classic case.
 
I loved the Damon family. Especially Andrew. Umm, yum. Please say he is getting his own book! We need more. I am so grateful that in the end, the right thing was done. Loved this book! Need more!

ONCE BURNED Sadie Howard never dates a guy more than once-but Fate has other plans for her when it comes to Aiden Downey, the one that got away. Aiden loved her, left her, and broke her heart. Yet suddenly she's bumping into him at every turn, driven to distraction by his wicked grin and rock-hard body. Now she can't resist finishing what they started-as long as she doesn't let herself fall in love . . . TWICE AS TEMPTING Aiden Downey threw away the best thing he ever had when he let Sadie go, and now he's determined to win back the woman he's always wanted. Sadie agrees to let him into her life-and her bed-as long as there are no strings attached. But Aiden's not about to make the same mistake again. Can he convince her to take a second chance on a once-in-a-lifetime love?
 
************************************
4 Hard to Handle Stars!
*******************************
My Review:
This was my very first Jessica Lemmon book and I have to say, I am impressed. I really loved this book. I loved Sadie. She was cute, witty, smart, and everything I love in a heroine. She fell for the super sexy biker Aiden once and was burned and she was bound and determined to not go there again.

Aiden is hot. Smoking hot. All broody, tatted up biker. He burned Sadie, but he totally regrets doing it. And he burned her for good reason. He's been through a lot and he is on the road to recovery. He's taken a vow of celibacy until marriage and trying to wear Sadie down. Sadie wants no part in marriage after her engagement goes bad when her sister steals her man. Sadie just wants some sexy times with Aiden, no strings attached.

So, can Aiden wear Sadie down or can Sadie convice him to just have the sexy times? Oh, and wait til you hear Miss Sadie's secret. You go, girl!

Don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll stop. I think I need to go back and read Crickitt and Shane's book now. I totally loved them in this book!

Right Now

Right Now (Moments #2)
by: Marie Hall
 
Right Now (Moments, #2)
 
Blurb:
Sometimes in life....
Things were supposed to get better when Ryan met Lili. I was supposed to move on, get a life... but I'm stuck and lost. Things with my father are not good. There are demons in our closet, big ones. Ones I want to kill him for, I'm seeing a shrink, I'm trying to get better... but my life feels out of control, like I'm a raft adrift on the sea. I don't know where to look, how to get anchored again, and then I meet Zoe Stone. Something about her draws me out of my rut, makes me laugh for real, smile, and for the first time in years I want to be more. But what will she think when she discovers who I really am?

...all we have...

When Alexander Donovan, aka The Golden Adonis, walks into my tattoo parlor, I know I'll do anything to make that man mine. There's an instant connection, a need to know more about him. Everything about him. But there's also a mystery surrounding the guy, when people look at him they only see the man that laughs, that cracks jokes and makes the world think that everything's okay, but I see the truth... I see the darkness that lurks so deep inside few would ever recognize it. I want to help him, I want to be with him, now I just have to make him trust me enough to let me in.

Is Right Now


I leaned my head back and thought about the boy who was no longer really a boy.

Alex was a man.

And a tall, really tall, one at that.

The moment I’d seen him walk through the door, my heart had constricted. Painfully. It’d taken me a second to catch my breath. I’d dreamed about him all through high school, watched as he took one girl after another out around town.

I doubted he remembered the girl working the popcorn counter at the theater, but every weekend there was always a new girl on his arm, a new girl kissing him and rubbing her horny little body all over his, and it was a miracle my teeth hadn’t become filed points as much as I’d ground them together.

And maybe it shouldn’t surprise me that he didn’t have a clue who I was; I no longer looked even remotely similar to the girl who’d graduated valedictorian of J.J. Baines High.

My fingers twitched as I remembered the feel of his body in my fist. He was big, and so damn hard my thighs had trembled.
Fire and static and electricity and whatever other chemical combustion had detonated inside me. I’d gone from zero to horny in two seconds the moment he’d walked in.

His hair had glinted so many different shades of blond, from white to burnished bronze, and all I wanted to do was touch it, run my fingers through it, wondering all the while if it was as soft as it'd looked.

One look into eyes that made me think of a sky right after a storm and I could no longer control myself.

My Review:
 
I loved this book! Totally 5 stars for me! I cannot believe it took me so long to get to it. I started reading this book and kept thinking I was missing something. So, I went out to GR and realized, yep this is book 2. So, I stopped and went in search of Book 1, A Moment. It's a freebie on Amazon and B&N right now and started that one. And let me say, that was amazeballs and led me right into Right Now. And did I mention it was FREE!

Right Now Alex and Zoe's story. Book 1 is Ryan and Lili's story. As much as I loved Ryan, there was something about his cousin Alex that had me lusting. Maybe it's his Golden Adonis look or his playfulness, or his manwhore tendencies, or his love for Lili and Ryan and Javi. Okay, well it's all of that. Anyway, this book was just something else. I absolutely love Zoe. I love that she reinvented herself and she doesn't take any crap. I love that she is so far opposite of what Alex is, it isn't funny. I love her tats and piercings and style! And I love that she pushes Alex to face his demons. I cannot imagine going through what Alex went through and I fully understand that it messes with his headspace.

This book is funny, it's deep, it's loving, it's just everything I love in this New Adult genre that has taken over my bookshelves! I am 100% a fan of Marie Hall and hope there is a book 3...for Jamie and Tor, perhaps? I can't wait!
