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!!

Filthy English
by Ilsa Madden-Mills
 
I was a huge fan of Dirty English so I was super pumped to read about Dax.  This book can be read as a stand alone.
 
Synopsis:
A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…


Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancĂ© drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party. She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime. 
 
This book sucked me in immediately.  This book was full of angst and tons of sexual tension.  Dax was a super sexy British bad boy, and Remi (such a cool name) was sassy and fun!  I love a second chance romance, and this had all of that and more.  I wanted to scream at Dax and Remi occasionally, but I loved them both!
Filthy English is available now, and for a very limited time it is on sale for $.99!  I highly recommend this book, it's full of angst and I adored it!  And the cover is smoking HOT!

Hitched
by Kendall Ryan
 
 
Synopsis:
 
Marry the girl I've had a crush on my whole life? Check.
Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.

Produce an heir... Wait, what?

I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There's only one problem--she hates my guts.
And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.
She can't stand to be in the same room with me. Says she'll never be in my bed.  
I have always enjoyed this author, her book are usually fun light and sexy reads.  This one was a little different.  After reading the synopsis, I was pretty sure I knew what would happen.  Boy loves girl and convinces her to marry him and they fall in love and live happily ever after.  That is not how it goes however.  The characters are fun, Noah was cocky and sexy, and funny.  Olivia was a little harder for me to get on board with, but eventually we got to know her and I felt like I could relate to her.  
 
This is the first book in the series and the end is a cliffy!  The next one comes out on 7/19 though, so not a super long wait!

Everything
by Erin Noelle
 
If you were a fan of The Book Boyfriend series, you need to read this book!  Although, it can be read as a standlone.
 
Synopsis:
Music was part of my DNA, pumping hard through my veins, resonating deep within my bones. Not surprising, considering my dad was a global rock star and my mom had the voice of a fallen angel.

With my twins sister by my side in our indie-rock duo, Singed Wings, we were ready to finally see our name in lights when we opened for the hottest act to sell out stadiums - Jobu's Rum Summer Reunion Tour.

The life I'd always wanted was finally within my reach. All I had left to do was finish out my last semester of high school.

But there was one problem: MS, Sloan, the new art history teacher.

The same Ms. Sloan I'd met as Belle, the sexy little pixie who'd captivated me at a New Year's Eve concert.

The same Ms. Sloan who'd owned nearly every one of my thoughts since that night.

With.   my dream gig dangling just on the other side of that cap and gown, all of my focus should've been on my school work and improving my music as I prepared for my big shot to rock the world...

But I never expected her to rock mine first.
And to change Everything.
 
This story was a teacher student romance with a twist.  I really wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I really did.  Everett is a sexy rock star, and I am always a sucker for that.  And Belle was a sassy heroine.  
  
This was one of those stories where I really wasn't sure it could all work out.  It was super sexy and full on angst.  This story was better than good!  There is going to be more books in this series and I am super excited!  I highly recommend this!!

Say You'll Stay
by Corrine Michaels
 
I had no idea what this book going into it.  I have loved everything I have read by this author, so I was excited to read this one, and it did not disappoint.
Synopsis:
One word.

Stay.
It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.

That was seventeen years ago.

I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.

Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.

This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . . 
 
This book is absolutely heart breaking from the very beginning! The whole first half of this book was so sad, and made me want to hug Presley.  And we really don't get the whole story about her and Zach until pretty far in.  This second chance love story had so emotional.  I had all the feels, I could not put it down.
Obviously, I loved Zach the hot cowboy.  We also see Presley moving on and healing.  I loved all the characters in this story and I can't wait for more.  There are 4 Hennington bros all together, so I am hoping they all get a book!!!
 
This is definitely 5 stars for me and I highly recommend it!!
