How much I loved her. How much I’ve always loved her. But I didn’t. I couldn’t. I just wasn’t made that way.
Instead… I claimed her. Teased her. Taunted her. Worshipped her. Until… I broke her.
My best friend. My savior. My girl.
From my mind to my heart, to every single bone in my body. She owned me. I was hers.
Every look. Every kiss. Every touch. Every tear.
It was always her.
The only thing I feared more than losing her was forgetting her. I hated how much I needed her.
She was mine. Always and forever.
I hated her then.
But Harley Jameson was about to find out how much…
I LOVED her now.
** I WAS GIVEN AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW **
If I thought I had a book hangover from “Hate You Then” the first book in this Duet, it was nothing to the feels and emotions I felt in this one. The first book was setting the tone for the anguish and what is really going on in this part of Jackson and Harleys journey, and it makes me love them even more on so many different levels.
I love how there is so much more depth in this story and the twist and turns keep coming and they do make it an amazing read.
There is so much I want to talk about, but if I do I feel I will give away everything and anything…. Uhg!
I Will say that I love how this details how past mistakes from childhood can come back and rear their ugly head. It also shows really how people do grow up and change, priorities are different as you grow and you really see what is important in life.
I love this book, and I love that it is true love, soul mates and just an amazing Story for everyone to read!
One look into Everly Williams’s big brown eyes and I knew I’d do anything to protect her. And for eight years I did. She was my world. My best friend.
But afraid I’d lose her, I held on too tight. Became a dark cloud blocking her sun. So I did what I needed to, and walked away. I hurt us both.
Now I’m home, and need Everly back in my life. Only everything is different. We’re different. My body burns for her when she’s near. And after one explosive kiss, I know she feels it too. I’ll do whatever it takes to earn her trust again.
Because I don’t want what we had before. I want it all…for a lifetime.
A best friend’s to lovers romance in the sexy new Rocktown Ink series.
**I WAS GIVEN AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW **
I am a sucker for friends who turn in to lovers because there is that established sense of love and devotion to one another. I like the spin on this one that there was not one that was pining the whole time for the other. There was a natural love that grew, there was conflict that made my heart break for Everly, she truly did feel abandoned by Dane, who was doing what he thought was best, because she was his best friend, his world. He lived to protect her and make sure she was ok at all times. Even if he over stepped the limits of what was really needed.
Dane is a sweet and broken man, who has watched over Everly for years, when an incident involving one of her less desirable dates at the time, caused Dane to make a call that broke him almost as much as it broke Eves. Who now felt abandoned by EVERYONE who ever loved her, she had to start over again and then after 18 months, Dane was back and wanted so very much to get his best friend back.
She agreed if he taught her how to date, and one kiss was all that it took for him to want more than just to be her friend, and was ready to work slow and hard to get her on his level.
Dane and Everly are not my favorite dream couple, I was sad to see it come to an end.
NOW, it is only September 24th, and I have read 21 books!! SO, instead of Listing them all…. I am going to share the Top 5 books…. But there is already a Cheat… One “Book” in this will be a trilogy and YOU will READ it and YOU will LIKE it!!
Here is my Beautiful List!
ONE: All The Forbidden Things By Lesley Jones
When all that you want, is all that’s forbidden…
I’ve known him my entire life. Before marriage. Before fatherhood. Before betrayal. Now, he’s one of rock’s bad-boys trying to be good. Trying to be the best father he can for his daughter. He’s my brother’s best friend. He’s my boss. He has a wife. Max isn’t mine to have, but I want him all the same. And I haven’t survived all that I have to not go after what I want.
Her story is a tragedy, mine’s a publicity disaster.
Just when I needed her most, she walked back into my life, and the timing couldn’t be worse. With a newborn baby, a divorce, an album to record, and a world tour to plan, I don’t need the distraction. She’s off limits. She’s my best friend’s little sister. She’s my nanny. Billie’s a golden drop of sexy sun on a grey autumn day, tempting me into the light and a life full of possibilities. A life not meant for us.

I’ve seen it face to face. He says I’m his light. But if our love is going to last, I’m going to have to be more than his princess. I need to become a Queen.
THREE: Neat By Kandi Steiner
My life is over.
I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.
It can’t be that bad, I thought.
Until I realized my new boss was Logan Becker.
The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason.
The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee.
But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear.
Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over.
And Logan’s will be, too.
FOUR: Hated You Then By M. Robinson
From Wall Street Journal & USA Bestselling Author M. Robinson. A coming of age, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance filled with angst and all the feels.
I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.
Before she owned me. Hated Me. Needed me.
Before I hated her…
Things were simple. We had an understanding.
Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.
Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.
I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.
She was mine. Always had been. Always would be. Nothing altered that.
Not how much I hated her. Not how much she hated me.
Especially, not how much I hated…
That I LOVED her.
FIVE: Love Me Tomorrow By Maria Luis
They call her America’s Sweetheart. And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.
I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.
Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.
If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way. If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be… but I’m not.
Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.
All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”
I’m no gentleman. But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.
Love Me Tomorrow is the third book in the highly anticipated series, Put A Ring On It, and can be read as a complete standalone.

Club life isn’t for everyone,
but for me—it was everything.
I was a man who’d always
demonstrated loyalty, pride, and grit. My brothers and those around me knew I
was someone they could trust, that I would always hold true to my word. They
knew I’d never waver or show signs of weakness when it came to my commitment to
the club, and as the new president of Satan’s Fury Memphis, I knew exactly what
I had to do.
Then, I met her … Samantha
Travers—a woman who consumed me and I knew there would never be another.

I loved how he made me feel
so wanted, so desired. We were both quickly getting carried away, forgetting
that we were out in broad daylight, until a car drove by only a few yards away.
While I found it doubtful that they could see anything, Gus pulled back from
our embrace and said, “It’s time to go.” “What?” I gasped. “I thought we had
all afternoon.” “We did.” He eased me off of him and quickly started to stand.
Once he was on his feet, he extended his hand to me and said, “But, then you
went and kissed me like that, and now, we have to go.” “We do?” As he pulled me
to my feet, he answered, “Yeah. We do.” “Why’s that?” I teased. “Cause I need
to bury myself inside my woman, and I have no intention of doing that out here
where God and anyone else can see.” He placed his hands on my hips and pulled
me close. “What you have going on is for my eyes only.” “Oh.” “Now, get that
sexy ass of yours on that bike,” he ordered with the sexiest smirk I’d ever
seen. I nodded, grabbed the blanket off the ground, and rushed over to his
motorcycle. I was about to put on my helmet when Gus came up to me and said,
“You know what?” “What?” “I’m pretty crazy about you.” I’d heard him say those
words to me many times , but there was something in his tone that made my chest
tighten, like a hot dagger had just impaled my heart. My voice trembled as I
repeated his words back to him. “I’m pretty crazy about you, too, Gus.”
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
I am here with a long list of awesome! Parenting, Wine, being a wife, and a lot about books! I love books and I love reading those smutty modern day harlequin Romance novels, that I affectionately call ‘Mom Porn’. It is my break from reality, it where I can read about a dirty Biker who wants nothing more than to rip my clothes off and have his way with me, but treats me like the queen I think I am! Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband and he treats me amazing, but nothing beats a little extra dirty in your brain before you bed that husband of yours.
I also am a mom of a special needs little man, and he is hard on my heart and my head but I wouldn’t trade him for all the wine in the world. He was born at 24 weeks and 2 days, we spent 157 days in the NICU and 33 days in the Children’s hospital, he is now 5 years old and starting kindergarten with an ADHD Diagnosis in September. I am so proud of him, he shows me how smart and curious he is every day, he started reading on his own at 4, I have and illustrated copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, he loves reading that with me and to his sister!
My Daughter is 3 years old, full term little demon who wants food more than literature, she is my little chub-ins, I struggled with my weight as a kid all the way into now, and I love working with her on healthier options because she is far from a picky eater! She is my girly girl who loves dresses and crowns, getting her hair done, when I paint my nails I have to paint her nails as well. She wants to grow up so fast and go to school with the big kids, but I just want her to stay little a little bit longer!
I am married to my best friend, and he treats me great. We fight hard, we love hard and we are not afraid to tell each other what it is because that is just how we work. He enjoys mocking me, I enjoy mocking him, but we work so well and we parent like a damn together. Yes, he is the good more than me, but they love us both the same.
This wont be a family friendly place, I will be posting about dirty fun awesome books, I will have a potty mouth, and I will be complaining about my hubby and kids in a way, but I will do it all with love and respect. Anything about my husband he will have final approval of, he will also be known at D3 or Hubby, and my kids will be known as only D1, D2, Spud and Princess Tally-Poots. I want to share our lives but I also want to protect them in a way as well.
I hope to hear from you all, and let me know what you think about my awesome little space here.
