Bad at Love
by Karina Halle


Bad at Love is a brand new friends to lovers story.  It is a complete stand alone.

Synopsis:
She's bad at love, but he's even worse...
Marina is hot, blonde, and wickedly smart, but when it comes to men? She's hopeless. Between her quirks and her lack of filter, there isn't a man in Los Angeles that will stick around after the third date.

Her handsome, charming friend Lazarus has the opposite problem. Everyone wants to be the sexy Brit's girlfriend, but he gets bored and moves on quickly.

There's only one way to figure out why neither of them has cracked this love thing-- they'll date each other. On paper, it's the perfect experiment. But in reality, things between Marina and Laz get complicated quickly.

They might be bad at love, but they are even worse at being friends.


I fell in love with these characters.  Marina was sweet and a little quirky.  And Laz was a sexy, brooding and british hottie.  This was a sweet and sexy as well as angsty friends to lovers story.  They had such funny and awkward banter, they cracked me up.  But also broke my heart at certain times.  I loved these 2, and I loved every second of the journey, even when I wanted to yell at them both!!!  

Bad at Love is available now, and is free if you have Kindle Unilimited!!  This an epic friends to lovers story, and I highly recommend it!!

Spider
by Ilsa Madden Mills

Spider is a complete stand alone, we do meet Spider in another series, but this book can be read as a stand alone.  

Synopsis:

He calls himself Spider.

I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane.

I didn't know who he really was...British rock star...my stepbrother.

He kissed me because he thought we'd never see each other again. We would.

Everyone warned me about him.
They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he'd leave me with a hole in my heart.

Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.

They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that's true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.

He just had to figure it out before it's too late...

I was sucked into this story from the very beginning.  I both loved and hated Spider.  He had moments where he was sweet and sexy, and then moments where he was destructive and I wanted to punch him.  And Rose was so sweet and young, and parts of the story just killed me.  This is an emotional, sexy, and somewhat heartbreaking coming of age story.  I loved how the relationship progressed, but also, it made me so sad at times.  

This is an emotional, well written angsty read, and I loved it.  I highly recommend it, and it is available now!!  It is also on Kindle Unlimited

The Outpost
by Devney Perry

I loved this whole series, but this one might be my fave.   This can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the whole series.   

Synopsis:

Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn't expect to fall for his big heart.

Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.

Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.

I absolutely fell in love with Beau and Sabrina.  We meet Beau early on in the series, but we don't really know much about him.  He is amazing!!  He is sweet, and sexy and completely devoted to his job and his family.  I adored him.  And Sabrina was a mess, but in such a heartbreaking way.  I felt so much for her, and I wanted to hug her.  This story is definitely a slow burn, and I was completely sucked in!!  I loved how the relationship grew, and at the same time they broke my heart. 
This series has been one of my favorites of 2017!!  I highly recommend them all, and especially The Outpost.  They are all emotional, sexy, and incredibly well written!  And I know at least one more book is coming.  
The author is giving away 2 $250 amazon gift cards as well signed paperbacks, so make sure and enter!!  

This book is available now, as well as the first 3 in the series

Falling Fast
by Aurora Rose Reynolds

This is a brand new stand alone from Aurora Rose Reynolds.  I am a hige fan of hers, and this one did not disappoint!

Synopsis:
Colton and Gia are from Until June
Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancĂ©, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

We meet Colton and Gia in Until June, but this can be read as a standalone.  I loved this characters in this story.  Gia was a strong and sassy girls, and Colton was a sexy alpha.  There was some angst, but not too much, and it was super sexy.  Colton was the perfect cocky alpha, and this story sucked me right in.  This was well written and flowed very well.  
This book is live and available now.  If you are a fan of cocky alpha males, and a great story, this is a great one.

I loved this book!!  It was sweet and incredibly heartbreaking.  I loved seeing all the characters from the original series.  This technically could be read as a standalone but I think if you read the Beaumont series you will get so much more out of it.  This book had me sucked in from the very beginning.  It is incredibly well written and I had no idea how they were going to work everything out.  I loved it!!  And I cannot wait for more in this series.

Sweet Time
by Nina Lane

Sweet Time is the 4th book in the Sugar Rush series, but it can be read as a standalone.  I read this one without having read the previous books in the series, and I didn't feel like I was missing anything.  


Synopsis:
Stuck in a boring insurance job, vivacious Mia Donovan has spent the last few years searching for her life's true path. She fills her time helping plan the wedding of her best friend to the CEO of the Sugar Rush Candy Company.

Mia has also been trying to attract the impossibly rigid Sugar Rush security chief Gavin Knight. But for well over a year, the unyielding Mr. Knight has ignored her, despite her short skirts, tight sweaters, and patently obvious flirting. And when he finally approaches her, it's only to assess the wedding plans for potential security risks.

A former soldier, Gavin has intercepted hostile anonymous letters threatening the high-profile wedding. Determined to keep everyone safe, he's forced to work with the maddeningly sexy Miss Donovan of the thousand-watt charm and irresistible body.

Irked by Gavin's many months of disregard, Mia takes her teasing flirtations to a whole new level. But her coquettish ways are no match for the edgy, lust-fueled dominant he conceals behind his impassive exterior. And when Gavin exerts his full control, Mia discovers he can protect everything except her heart.


I really enjoyed this book.  I fell in love with the characters from the beginning.  Mia is hilarious and sassy.  And Gavin was super alpha and broody.  Watching them dance around each other was a ton of fun. 

This was a fun and sexy read, but also with a little suspense thrown in.  I did read this as a standalone, but I enjoyed it so much I think I am going to go back and read the first three books.  
This and the first three books are available now!!  And right now, the first book is free!

Exes with Benefits
by Nicole Williams

Nicole Williams has quickly become one of my go to authors, her stories always suck me in!! 

Synopsis:
The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce.

We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul.

When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanor, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . .

He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice.

He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.

I adored this book!  This is a great second chance romance, with some heartbreak thrown in.  I fell in love with Canaan from the beginning.  He made some mistakes, but he more than made up for them.  And Maggie made me a little crazy!  I understood her apprehension on some level, but I wanted to shake her a little too.  I loved learning about the past, and watching them move past it.   

This is available now, and I highly recommend it.  It is a stand alone, and so so good.
