REVIEW: Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny By Piper Rayne

SYNOPSIS

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business.
I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

MY REVIEW

** I RECEIVED AN ARC COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **

This is another case of I was excited to read this book but was unsure of how I would feel because the lead up to Phoenix was hard for me to relate to her and her spoiled attitude, but there was something that changed between Denver’s story and hers. She grew up and honestly I loved her story!

I have this sever love of the single parent tropes, and Griffin and his son honestly remind me of \a mixture of all the best qualities of al the single dads in the “Single Dads Club” Series (I know that because I am listening to the audiobooks again at work). Maverick brings out all the best of Phoenix and the growing she did in a short amount of time really did resignate with me because when I was 22/23 I was also lost and unsure of where I should be going in life and a chance job set me on a path that has made me happy.

I love the insight on what the family has been going through and the slight peeks into past couples and what they are going through currently. \my heart went through so many emotions I can’t even put into words. Because they are dead giveaways and clues that would ruin the book. But I do recommend this book o so many people!

REVIEW: Resilience By Amanda Shelley Book 1 Of A Duet

Book One

SYNOPSIS

Samantha never saw Enzo coming.

As the dust settles from her divorce, her life is full. She doesn’t have time for distractions. She’s too busy running her own company and checking off numerous items from her kids’ demanding schedule to have a life of her own.

Then he walks into her kitchen with his breathtaking green eyes and a mischievous grin. He’s there to surprise his father – her contractor, but his presence makes everything off kilter.

Enzo’s perfectly content with his adventurous life as an elite rescue pilot, until a harmless prank turns on him. Instead of surprising his father, he finds his world thrown off course by the beautiful woman with a sexy smile, wicked sass and the mouthwatering ability to keep him on his toes.

With his limited time on leave, is she worth the risk to his heart? 

MY REVIEW

** I WAS GIVEN AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW**

I love Single parent tropes and I love realistic but not stale interpretation on those relationships and how they grow. 

This is my first Amanda Shelley book and I fell in love!! This book is sweet, instalove, and amazingly steamy! He had his heart broken and never felt that connection again.

She was still recovering and finding herself after a marriage that created 3 beautiful and funny kiddos! 

Then the decision to add more chaos to her life and renovate her kitchen, was one of the best she ever made. 

Sam is who I wish I could be as a single mom (I am a mom just not a single one), she is strong balanced and generous. She does have a mildly shaky relationship with her ex, but is strong enough to rise above all their issues and pettiness so her kids can have an amazing relationship with their dad. 

Enzo is in his late 30s and just discovering who is he is after 20 years of bachelorhood and military life stationed so far away over seas disconnected from family and hometown friends. His time is coming to a close should he choose, but will that help him find himself, or settle down like his Mom and Dad want, or will he find adjusting to civilian life to hard to manage. 

Enzo is slowing overtaking all other boyfriends in my Book Boyfriend List, and I really want to be mommy friends with Samantha so she can teach me the balance she has found. 

This is my very first 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review of 2020!! 

I cannot wait to see what book two of this duet hold in store!!!

Seriously…. I cannot wait! Lol

COVER REVEAL: You’re The One By Layla Hagen

COVER REVEAL: You’re The One By Layla Hagen

Very Irresistible Bachelors #1
By Layla Hagen
Release Date: February 4

Hot. Flirty. Romantic.

It all started as pretend…

My best friend, and one of the most powerful men in New York, needed my help.

Our first kiss was unexpected—but it still made my skin sizzle, my knees go weak.

The next one was in front of his tight-knit family. We had to be convincing. But it was so wicked hot, it almost convinced me too.

On our first night together, he told me that I had to keep us both in check, because he didn’t know how to keep the lines from blurring…

He touched me like I was precious, and held me close… barely stopping his fingers from pushing down the straps of my dress…

On our second night, our banter turned to flirting. Hunter—my best friend was now Hunter—the man.

Intense. Alluring. Sexy as hell.

REVIEW: Rider By L. Wilder

SYNOPSIS

I’d spent years trying to put the past behind me. I wanted to forget the mistakes I’d made, the dreams I’d lost, but they were a part of me. They made me the man I’d become–a brother of Satan’s Fury MC.

I wore my cut with pride. It was a constant reminder of how far I’d come and who’d helped me get there. I thought I had my life figured out until the day Darcy Harrington came walking into the Satan’s Fury garage. 

I’d grown up with the strong-willed, foulmouthed beauty, and even back then, I wanted to make her mine. But she had her guard up, never letting anyone get too close, including me. 

That was about to change. Come hell or high water, I was going to break down her walls and prove I was a man she could trust.

I’d learned to fight for what I wanted, and I wanted her.

MY REVIEW

** I RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW **

I have been waiting for this book for a while, I was excited to see what was coming after Gus, and Rider did not disappoint in the least.

Rider was a sweeter kind of book, past friendships that come to the front, former crushes that is slowly turning into more, there is a slight slower burn in this book, the lead up and the learning more about his past and why he is who he is. I love learning the origin of how these guys join a 1%er MC, because it’s not a decision that people would not take lightly.

Seeing the dark and scary place he came from, where his mind was and how far he has come to make himself better. But how far he still has to go and what happened in his past to lead him down this road.

I love the old love / crush coming back into the lives and showing how everyone has grown, but stayed the same in the ways that matter.

I highly recommend this book, and this series if you are looking for a GREAT MC Series.

REVIEW: Joy By Lilly Atlas

SYNOPSIS

Life, death, trauma, healing; the Hell’s Handlers have been through it all over the past year. They’ve conquered old enemies, acquired new ones, and struggled through devastating upheavals. So far, they’ve come out on top, knocking down challenges by focusing on one essential ideal: family above all. With Copper at the helm, the Handlers are a patchwork family of bikers who will fight to the death for what they’ve created.

And after all they’ve survived over the past three hundred and sixty-five days, the Handlers are ready to lay down their weapons, pick up their drinks, and coast through the holidays with nothing but joy in mind. But as often happens with life in an MC, Christmas takes a back seat to club drama.

As the year rolls to a close, the men and women of the club will experience new life, new chapters in love, and plenty of new beginnings. But not everything is sparkly and bright as dangerous enemies threaten the tight-knit group of rough and rowdy bikers. Will twenty-nineteen end in tragedy, or will the club once again emerge victorious in time to find a little joy for the holidays?

MY REVIEW

** I WAS GIVEN AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW **

I have been Lilly Atlas fan for a long while, she was the one who introduced me into the wonderful world of MC Romance books.

I love Joy because it is a nice wrap up of stories that were started long ago as well as opens the door for more things to come.

I am a huge fan of Copper and Shell, as well as Jig, and this book allows us to explore their lives after their book has been completed, from their point of view. I like that as it is a carry on and completed the story for a few of our favorite couples, but it also shows us how they have grown as well.

Thats is why I love Lilly books because her characters are ever evolving and growing, like real people. I like that and I also like that it isn’t like other wrap up books, where it just completes the small open story lines from the main books, but this one creates a whole new story line that we can see from multiple angles and viewpoints.

I also like that there is this new villian that we can work with and wonder what is going to come through in later books.

I do recommend this book!

Author Bio:

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.

Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

Samantha never imagined she would fall so hard for the man who broke through her defenses and took her world by surprise. She’s looking forward to their carefree vacation. However, fate has other plans, which potentially will bring them closer together or rip them apart.
