REVIEW: Love You Now By M. Robinson

REVIEW: Love You Now By M. Robinson

SYNOPSIS

I should have told her everything.

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. 

MY REVIEW

** 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!

REVIEW: Meant For You By Sherilee Gray

REVIEW: Meant For You By Sherilee Gray

SYNOPSIS

At twelve years old, I was torn from my family.

At fourteen I met her: my reason to draw breath.

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.

MY REVIEW

**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.

I will gladly give this 5 Stars!

COVER REVEAL: Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny By Piper Rayne

COVER REVEAL: Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny By Piper Rayne

THE BAILEYS #6
Release Day: January 7

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.

REVIEW: Strip For Me By Georgia Coffman

REVIEW: Strip For Me By Georgia Coffman

SYNOPSIS

A story that starts with “Once upon a time in Vegas…” isn’t supposed to end with “happily ever after.”

Sebastian

I know this better than anyone, and I can’t let history repeat itself. This is why I have rules, and at the top of that list is no fraternizing with audience members after shows. But my rules mean nothing after my instant connection with Kendall. Her southern accent suggests a certain charm, but her sharp tongue says otherwise. Which is why I can’t help myself—she’s a mystery I need to solve. The more I get to know her, the more I start to believe she could be the one.

Until my past comes barreling in and makes me wonder if my one night with Kendall was real or all a cruel game.

Kendall

Although I live in LA, my conventional family loves to remind me of my small-town upbringing. They’ve never approved of my life choices—dropping out of college, moving across the country, and dating around, to name a few. Getting involved with Sebastian will be yet another decision they disapprove of—how much more of their disappointment can I take?

After all, he’s a stripper for Vegas’s hottest male revue show. He can’t be my forever.

The odds are against us, but then again, anything can happen in a story that starts with “Once upon a time in Vegas…”

*Strip for Me is Book 1 in the Naked Heat series. Each book is a standalone contemporary romance. 

MY REVIEW

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

This book was sweet, Sassy and sexy.

I saw the synopsis and was on the fence about it, because I have my certain kind of books and authors I stick close to. Like Sports, mainly Hockey, Baseball and Football, then My MC books, and then the single parent books. This is was one that I stepped out of the norm for me and I was not disappointed in the least.

I love how strong Kendall is, but when things are provent that they are not as she sees them, she kind of falls apart in a way that I see as weak and childish. She has a lot of self confidence issues that play into that at the same time I believe and what she finds with Sebastien helps her open up in the way that she needs to.

Sebastien has a few self confidence issues as well although they are not as obvious as Kendalls and they are deeper down. I think that is why I loved this book a lot, it helps you see the beauty in everything including yourself.

I do recommend this book to anyone and every one struggling a bit, there are people who believe in you.

Plus the sexy times are pretty steamy.

RELEASE BLITZ: Holi-Date By Monica Murphy

RELEASE BLITZ: Holi-Date By Monica Murphy

“Absolute Christmas magic. If Hallmark doesn’t make this movie I may go on Christmas movie strike!” #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

Holidate, an all-new standalone contemporary holiday romance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Monica Murphy is LIVE!

Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?

Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

REVIEW: Falling For My Brothers Best Friend By Piper Rayne

REVIEW: Falling For My Brothers Best Friend By Piper Rayne

SYNOPSIS

Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.

Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.

Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.

Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.

Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)

Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.

Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.

Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

MY REVIEW

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

The long wait is over! After month of speculation and hopes of what will go down with Savannah and Liam I was not left disappointed!

Liam has this kind heart that really isn’t hidden under anything, he actually wears it out on his sleeve when it comes to Savannah, who saw him as her younger twin brothers partner in crime. But as they all grew up her attraction grew to him. But seeing herself as the matriarch of the Bailey children, the one who needed to be responsible and a positive, strong female role model for her younger sisters as well as the other young women of Lake Starlight, she forgot how to be anything but that. She forgot to take care of herself and let herself relax and have moments to remember who she was.

But Liam was watching this, and was not boustrious about this fact about her but he wasn’t exactly silent about it either. He was determined to prove that he was not the trouble making friend of Savannahs younger brothers, that he was a strong man, who was worth her time. While doing that he built up this air of self confidence that masked a softer side that worried about what others thought, about him, his art and his life’s choices.

With Savannah, he let those walls come down, but will she let hers come down as well?, Well you will have to read the book to find out!!!

This was a book worth the wait in so many ways! I highly recommend it!
It is my first 5 STAR Review of October!!

REVIEW: Neutral Grounds By Jiffy Kate

REVIEW: Neutral Grounds By Jiffy Kate

SYNOPSIS

First comes marriage, then comes…love? Divorce? Let’s pretend this never happened …

They say opposites attract and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to CeCe and Shep. But what happens when the two most anti-marriage people in the French Quarter start enjoying the act?

CeCe

I never planned on getting married. After my dad deserted my family the day before my tenth birthday, and I watched my mother fall to pieces over him, I decided it wasn’t worth the heartache. Then Shepard Rhys-Jones, who ghosted me two years ago, declares he needs to marry someone to claim his inheritance, and I drunkenly offer myself up as his wife.

He was the best I’ve ever had and now, he’s all mine… but only for the next year.

Shep

I never planned on getting married. It was one business transaction I had no desire to close. Yet, here I am… sitting in a bar in New Orleans… seriously considering making CeCe Calhoun my wife. If we can manage to stay married for a year, I’ll be one hundred million dollars richer and finally have the freedom to forge my own path, separate from the Rhys-Jones name.

She’s the only woman I’ve struggled to forget, and she’s finally mine. For now.

Is it possible for this fake marriage to be real?

MY REVIEW

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

Shep was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and the world at his feet. Cece has had to work hard for everything and anything in her life. Yet they both have such a skewed vision on weddings and marriage. They are very much the opposites in every social sense, but emotionally they were on the same level, and they didn’t even know it.

I love how they are together and how this plan was hatched, it was a bit harder for me to really get into it but only because I have been reading a lot of instant love books and this was a slow burn that took its time for the emotions to catch up to the physical. And there is a lot of physical there that leave you semi fanning your face, (Not Safe To Read At Work! LOL)

They have a great mutual friend group that adds so much to their story without taking away from it. I did feel that the book itself was slow to start, mainly on the emotional level, and it was dragged out longer than needed in certain aspects but skipped over others that didn’t really get an answer. Then it also felt very rushed out at the end, and even the epilogue didn’t really wrap up many of the unanswered questions I had… Not that they were really important, but it felt a little un finished.

I still recommend this book

REVIEW: Just Roommates By Charity Ferrell

REVIEW: Just Roommates By Charity Ferrell

SYNOPSIS

Our relationship starts as a game.
I sneak into his bar underage.
He kicks me out.
Repeat.

Maliki Bridges is the town’s hottest bar owner.
He thinks I’m the mayor’s troublesome daughter.
I think he has a stick up his a**.

Once I turn twenty-one, we become friends.
Nothing more …

Until my world is turned upside down, and he offers me his guest bedroom.
It’s a bad idea, moving in with him, but any opportunity I get to be around him I’ll take.
Consequences be damned.

Becoming roommates is the riskiest game we’ve ever played.

MY REVIEW

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

Sierra is one of my top favorite Female leads, but some of her thought processes annoy me to no end. Maliki is the strong stoic brooding type that is my weakness!!

This is my very first Charity Ferrell book, that’s right I just jumped in the middle of a series! It is how I roll these days it seems.

The banter between Maliki and Sierra is amazing and comical! How they became to be friends is a unique story that really does reflect on how their relationship and friendship runs its course. This slow Burn frenemies to Lovers is just to sweet to not share to everyone out there.

REVIEW: Single In Sitka By Katy Regnery

REVIEW: Single In Sitka By Katy Regnery

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times Bestselling Author Katy Regnery comes a sexy new series!

When Seattle journalist, Amanda, heads north to Sitka to research a story, she answers the Odds Are Good personal ad of single dad, Luke, hoping for some no-strings-attached fun. But could the sweet, widowered father of three—who just happens to be a smokin’ hot state trooper—turn out to be the man of her dreams?

MY REVIEW

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

This was a sweet and soft Romance, one with real organic chemistry that leaped off the page.

Luke needed help and he he didn’t even know it. Amanda thought she was broken, but she wasn’t. Then they are thrown together in a short but sweet meeting that twists and turns into something they didn’t know that they needed.

Luke is the strong stoic type, and since tragedy struck his family his life was more about them than himself. He was a single father of 3 over night, he didn’t focus on his grief, and just managed as best he could.

Amanda is thrust into a project, after dealing with personal heartbreak that doesn’t really feel like heartbreak should. She is watching all those around her move forward with their lives and create their own families, but where is she in that?

Her chance meeting with Luke shows her what she is missing, and shows Luke that there is always another chance at love.

I recommend this book for those with a soft heart, those who love the single parent books, and the slow burn but instant love. Sweet but sassy kids and a little bit of hero worship.
