Unstable
by SE Hall
 
I am a big SE Hall fan so I was excited to get a new one from her.  And the cover is HOT!!!!

Synopsis:
After eight years, Henley Calvert is headed home. Back to the family farm and small town she left behind, never to be thought of again.

Too much regret and shame to bear.

But she’s the only one left to see to her family’s legacy, so she must return to Ashfall and face all the ghosts that haunt her.

****

Gatlin Holt, the family farmhand, awaits her arrival, and lends a hand—in more ways than one. He reacquaints Henley with the lay of the land while helping her heal her soul with a new outlook on life.

Yet every time she thinks some peace may be within reach, Henley hits another roadblock. The biggest of which is Keaton Cash—her childhood nemesis who owns the farm next door.

****

And no, it’s not a love triangle. That’s impossible when Henley’s heart is closed, incapable of love.  

I know this says it is not a triangle, but at first I really thought it was.  It doesn't take long to figure out it's not.  It took me awhile to come around to Henley.  She starts off very brash and rough.  Once we got some insight into her we figure out why she is that way.  This is one of those stories where you can't put it down because you have to know where it's going.  

   
 There is a sexy, dirty talking cowboy, and a super wise cowboy you just want to hug, but I'm not going to tell you which is which!  There is a crazy crazy twist at the end!!  I highly recommend this one.  I promise you will be surprised!

Spiralling Skywards
Falling Book 1
by Lesley Jones
 
I am a huge fan of this author so I was excited to read this new one.  However, she makes me nervous too, if you have read Carnage you know why!!  So this is Book 1, but it does not end in a cliffy.  
 
 
 
Synopsis:
It only takes one defining moment.
One look.
One dance.
One conversation.
Sarah knows from the second she meets Liam that their connection is more than just instant attraction. It’s deep, it’s consuming, and has the potential to be the real thing. But true love comes at a price.
Fuelled by Liam's past, Sarah's issues, and a messy web of family ties, business partnerships, and exes, the combined forces threaten to snuff out their new found relationship. Will that spark be smothered by outside forces? Or will they be carried like smoke from the ashes and sent spiralling skywards?

 
I have always liked the way that Lesley Jones writes.   Her writing is heartfelt, sometimes heart breaking, and funny.  She uses a ton of British/Australian slang, and I sometimes have to look them up, but I love it!  
Liam Delaney was a super sexy rugged Australian and I loved him from the start.  He fell for Sarah immediately.  And Sarah Carter was an innocent sweet girl that couldn't believe Liam wanted her.  
 
 
This is Book 1, but does end in a cliffhanger.  It is full of angst, and there is a character that you will hate.  I can't wait to see what she does with Book 2.  Book 2 will be out later this year, so not a super long wait!!

Wide Open Spaces
by Aurora Rose Reynolds
 
Synopsis:
That moment your life changes.
That moment that changes your life.
That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.
That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.
There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.

When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.

Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won't be a mistake he ever makes again.

Some things never change and love is one of them
 
I am a huge fan of this author so I was pumped to read this one.  the prologue sucked me in and completely broke my heartIt had me in tears before the first chapter.  I loved Zach!  He was a sexy alpha that thiis author always does so well.  I enjoyed the story and it was an easy quick read, however, I do feel like a lot of the issues were not dealt with.  It seemed super easy and lacking a little drama and angst.  But it was a sweet story and I really enjoyed it

 


This book is a complete stand alone and is available now!!

The Debt
by Karina Halle
I am a huge fan of this author and this series, so i couldn't wait to read this one.  This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone.  
Synopsis:
Jessica Charles shouldn't have even been in London when the unthinkable happened.
She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, having drinks with her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always.

But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever.

Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes.
That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again.

Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman.

Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her.

And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart.

He may have been a stranger to her.
But she's never been a stranger to him. 
This book sucked me immediately!  The prologue gripped me from the start and I wanted to just sit and devour the whole thing.  Jessica's story is heartbreaking from the beginning.  A tragedy that was unthinkable happened to her, and this is the story of how she overcomes that!  And Keir, swoon!  He is a dirty talking, broken Scots men and I fell in love with him immediately.

This book also painted such an incredible picture of Scotland and all it's beauty that now I want to visit.  The places and scenery described in this story sound incredible!!!
  
Karina Halle is an amazing writer that always has the ability to break my heart and put it back together and put it back together again.  She is an automatic one-click for me, she writes contemporary romance at it's best!  This book is available now, and I highly recommend it, along with all of her books!!  Grab it now!!

Wait
by AL Jackson



I am a huge AL Jackson and I loved this series, I was super excited to read this book.  I couldn't wait to see what happened to Austin

Synopsis:
She is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go. Edie Evans is gorgeous. Sexy. Kind. She’s also the definition of off-limits. But that didn't stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night. But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too. The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again. Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd. Austin Stone is dangerous. Alluring. Tempting. He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again. It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him. Our desire is overpowering. Our need unrelenting. She is my hope. He is my weakness. We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground. 

Wait is part of the Bleeding Stars series, it can be read as a stand alone.  I really enjoyed getting into Austin's head.  We met him in previous books, but we didn't really know his whole story.  This book really delves into his demons and why he is the way he is.  
Edie was a sweet sad girl, and her story was heartbreaking.  Watching her and Austin come into there own was beautiful.  
I love Al Jacksons writing.  Her writing in beautiful and heartfelt and it totally sucks you in.  
This book is live now and I highly recommend it.  


The author is also having an amazing giveaway!  She is giving away and Coach wristlet as well as signed copies of the entire Bleeding Stars series!!  Make sure and enter

Reapers Fire
by Joanna Wylde
 
I am a huge fan of the Reapers series, so I was very excited to review this one.  This is part of the Reapers series but I do think it can be read as a standalone.
 
Synopsis:
The club comes first.

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

I’m coming for you, Tinker.

Soon.  
 
I devoured this book.  I loved Tinker and Gage.  Gage was an uber alpha biker.  And Tinker was sassy and hilarious.  Her inner dialogue cracked me up.  I wanted to scream at Gage for a huge portion of the book, but I loved him!  And the cover is smokin HOT!
 

 


This book is live now and I highly recommend it.  It's sexy, funny, and a little mystery thrown in.  This is one of my favorite biker series!!

The Hard Count
by Ginger Scott
 
I am a huge fan of Ginger Scott so I was very excited to read this book.  This is a stand alone YA romance.  The romance really is secondary to the sports and private school politics.  I LOVED it.
Synopsis:
Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s a place where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love. But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid, where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wicked smoke flows from pipes.

West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at a time, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom always told him to run.

I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughter in the perfect family.
Life on top.
Lies.
My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best high school football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls. Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trump all. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us for years.

In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.
Quarterback.
Hero.
Heart.
Good.
I hated him before I needed him.
I fell for him fast.
I loved him when it was almost too late.

When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…it hasn’t met the boy from West End.

 
This book is an emotional sports romance.  I loved Reagan Prescott and her love of football and everything that includes.  She is loyal to her family, and her love of the game.  And Nico is a boy from the wrong side of town, but he has so much character.  I loved him!!  This story shows the emotion and politics of high school football and private school drama!  The relationship that develops between Nico and Reagan's father is beautiful.  



This book is live now and I highly recommend it!!
