Mad Love 2
by Colet Abedi
I read Mad Love 1 forever ago and I had accidentally stumbled onto it.  I fell in love with the characters, but the end was quite the cliffy and I have been anxiously awaiting the conclusion.  
Heartbroken by the handsome and enigmatic Clayton Astor Sinclair, Sophie Walker has put her whirlwind romance with him in the Maldives behind her and is determined to focus on her career as an artist.
But when her new job in the south of France turns out to be too good to be true, she can't help but wonder if she is making a mistake. Their passion cannot be denied, but when Clayton shuts her out after a family tragedy, Sophie is determined to fight for what is right.
She must defy all odds to find her own happily ever after.

The end of Book 1 made me crazy so I was very glad that this book picked up where the last one left off.  I felt like in this book Sophie really grew and matured, and made me respect her even more.  She realized who she was and fought for what she wanted.  So this time when Clayton shuts her out, she doesn't let him get away with it.  This book found a bit of a reversal for me, and I was mad at Clayton for a good portion, whereas last time I was mad at Sophie!!!  
This was a 4 star read for me.  The only reason it wasn't a 5 star read is because I wanted more at the end.  I think it needed an epilogue, maybe a HEA.  I highly recommend this series though and both books are available now.

The Dark Ones
by Rachel Van Dyken
It is no secret that I am a huge Rachel Van Dyken fan.  I do not normally read paranormal books, but for RVD I was willing to give it a shot.  And I am so glad that I did!  I loved this book from the very first page.
To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I've been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It's always been theirs.
This book is about a group of immortals who cannot breed with other immortals so they must mate with humans.  This is going to be a series, so each immortal will have a book, which is good.  We meet all of them in this first book and I loved them all.  As with all RVD books, the characters are awesome.  This book is about a vampire named Ethan and Genesis.  Ethan was hot, sexy, and a little funny at times.  Genesis was sweet and sassy, and a little vulnerable.  I was sucked in from the first page!!

My Kind of Forever
by Heidi Mclaughlin

This is the last book in the Beaumont series and it is live today!!  This is a new part of life for Liam and Josie and I can't wait to read it, but I am sad the series is over.  
Liam Page knows music and a life of solitude, but that all changed when he returned to Beaumont.

The once notorious bad boy lead singer of 4225 West is now living the domesticated life with his wife and high school sweetheart, Josie, and their son, Noah.

Life is good for the Westbury family, until Liam is called back to Los Angeles and the place where it all started for him.

Liam and Josie’s story continues in this last installment of The Beaumont Series.

The way the mirror on my dressing table is angled gives me the perfect opportunity to watch Liam undress. This is my favorite ritual, morning and night. I’ll take the chance anytime I can to watch him methodically peel off his clothes. He’s a man who unties his shoes first, placing them back on the shoe rack. His socks are next, followed by his shirt. My peeping tom ways are often rewarded when he’s wearing a dress shirt. Not only do I get to watch the muscles in his back flex as he pushes each button through the ridiculously small hole, but his undressing is prolonged. He takes his t-shirt off the same way every time and when he pulls the collar from behind and the shirt slowly lifts inch by inch, my mouth waters. My lips become dry and my knuckles ache from my hand clutching my hairbrush. The clank of his belt buckle and the almost too silent pop of the fabric from his button down jeans have me staring intently into the mirror. My make-up is only half off, my mouth wide open and I’m the picture of someone who needs serious help. And let’s not get started on the way he gets dressed...
He knows I watch him. This is a game to him. He could sleep in or stay up late, but he doesn’t. Liam gets up with me in the morning and goes to bed when I do at night and I’m starting to think it’s because his intention is to have me committed. I may or may not have a drooling issue when it comes to staring at my husband. You’d think that after watching him grow up that I’d be used to his body, but the truth of the matter is, he didn’t fully grow until he left Beaumont. I missed the transformation from teenage boy to man. Sometimes I think I’m happy that I did, but other times, I think about all the other women out there that have experienced his transformation. I hate them all. I’m jealous of them and I don’t know why. I have him now. He chose me.          
His jeans drop to the ground and he kicks them aside, depriving me of the chance to watch him bend over to pick them up. I find myself leaning into my vanity to get a better look as his thumbs dip into the waistband of his boxer briefs. Men find women's lingerie sexy and appealing. It turns them on. The look and feel teases them and they love it. I never thought about men in their underwear until I saw Liam in his. Over the years he’s maintained his muscles, yet has a more defined physique. His boxers aren’t sagging in places they shouldn’t. My husband could be an underwear model with his form fitting briefs, although I don’t know if I’d want the world to see what he only shares with me. The cotton fabric pools at his feet. He steps out of them and turns around, showing me his naked body... a body only for my eyes, my hands, my lips and any other part of me.  
“How long are you going to stare at me?” I swallow hard as my eyes flash to his and a wicked grin plays across my lips.
“Until my eyes no longer work,” I tell him. “Or until you tell me to stop.”
“Hmm that’ll be never,” he says as he walks near me.

This is the last book in this series, but the author has said that all the kids in the series will get books!!  So exciting

By Rachel Van Dyken

I love everything that RVD writes, and this was no exception.  This is a new stand alone novel that is has a combo of Seaside and Ruin characters. 


Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.
But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.
Dani lives anything but a normal life.
Her sister is married to one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Her best friends are rockstar duo AD2.
And she has more love around her than most people experience in a lifetime.
But that doesn't change the fact their parents are dead.
Or that it's her fault.
It seems her new normal is being a mute, living on the inside, unable to actually
communicate on the outside.
That is until Hollywood’s newest heartthrob Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant for
the summer.
He's gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.
But that doesn't stop her from wondering...if things were different...would he want her?
If she was whole, would he be the other half?

I loved the characters in this story.  I already loved the Seaside and Ruin characters, but I loved Lincoln and Dani as well.  Lincoln was sexy and sweet but also a little dorky, which made him loveable to me.  Dani was only seventeen but she was smart and funny and sarcastic.

Rachel's books are always funny, sexy, and sweet, and this one was no different.  The characters are so great and I love them all.  We also meet Zane in this book and he was amazing!  I can't wait to hear the rest of his story, and his book is next!!  
Capture is LIVE and available now!!  It can be read as a stand alone, but I loved the Ruin series as well as the Seaside series, they are great reads and totally worth it.

by TM Frazier
This is the followup book to King and I have been anxiously awaiting it's release!!  The end of King was a huge cliffhanger so I couldn't wait to see how it was resolved.  
I. Remember. Everything.
Only now I wish I didn’t.
When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.
But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed.
Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.
I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.
I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.
He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.
Even if that means marrying someone else…
At the end of King, King has sent Pup back to her family in exchange for his daughter, but we know right away that's not what happens.  
This book picks up right where this one ends, and so much happens.  We learn who Pup really was, and all the things that led her to be at King's house to start with.  As her memories return, she realizes all the terrible things that had happened.  There are so many twists and turns in this one, and I really enjoyed it.  Everything was tied up in a nice bow at the end.

Getting Hot
by Mia Sheridan
Getting Hot is book 2 in the Jail Bait series, but can be read as a standalone.  I really enjoyed this one and it inspired me to read the other books in the series.
Rules of engagement:
1) You have the right to use force to defend yourself.
2) Fire may be returned to stop a hostile attack.
3) You may not seize the property of others to accomplish your mission.
4) Detention of civilians is authorized in self-defense.

Delilah Morgan and her older sister Destiny have been on their own for two years, since their parents burned down the family home and went to jail for cooking meth. She’s street smart and tough. Nothing about her says sixteen, and she’s not about to tell anyone, especially Bran, the hot ex-marine bartender Destiny has her eye on. He’s stable and successful and everything her sister needs to keep them off the street. The only problem, something about Bran inspires her and suddenly she’s writing the best music she ever has. About him.
Branson Silo knows what it means to be in the line of fire. Home for a year from his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, he thinks he’s safe…until he meets Delilah. Despite her sharp tongue that makes him want to take cover, he can’t deny the attraction. But when he hires her to play weekends at his family’s saloon, he finds out she’s more than he can handle…which is saying something considering he used to blow things up for a living.
When the grenade finally explodes and the shrapnel flies, will Bran be left standing? Or has he survived years at war only to be taken down by Jail Bait?

I had no expectations going into this book and I was pleasantly surprised.  I  loved Branson and Lilah.  Lilah's sister Destiny made me mad though.  This is also one of those books when you want to scream at the characters for a good portion of the book!!  But I loved the story and it was really hot!!

The Moment of Letting Go
by JA Redmerski 
This book is LIVE today and I really enjoyed it!!
Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved--until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.
Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can't promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be.
This was a great book about overcoming fears and I devoured it.  I loved Luke and Sienna.  Luke was sexy and fun, and also a little sad.  Sienna was strong and serious, and was learning how to let things go.  I really loved this story, it reminded a bit of The Edge of Never, by this same author.
