Love Always by Yessi Smith
**This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn't suitable for readers under the age of 17.**
In love with a man on the brinks of greatness, Dee has her life figured out. The love they share is comparable only to the love they feel when they find out Dee is pregnant. Josh and Dee welcome their future together with eagerness as they plan a wedding, baby, and the upcoming tour for Josh’s band Wasted Circle. Big things are finally happening.
During Wasted Circle’s first big show, tragedy strikes leaving Dee alone. The life her and Josh planned for ends up being nothing but desolate promises. Unable to watch his best friend’s girlfriend drown under her own despair any longer, Adam steps in to help Dee cope with her loss and the upcoming birth of her baby. Adam is patient, kind and unrelenting. He stands by her side, never faltering despite his growing desire to be more than Dee’s supportive shoulder and the idea that he is betraying Josh. He refuses to give up on Dee and remains loyally by her side even when she admits herself into a psychiatric ward and he is left to father Josh and Dee’s baby.
But even sweet and sturdy Adam has his limits.

I was sucked into this story from the beginning.  And my heart was immediately broken!  I really thought this book would be a traditional rock star book, but it isn't.  The band is really just a background to the main story, which is the evolution of Dee and Adam's relationship.  Adam was an amazing character that stepped up and totally took over.  I loved him.  I felt for Dee, and I wanted to hug her, but there were several times when I wanted to scream at her.  We had an inside view into Dee and Adam's turmoil, and I just wanted to yell at them to just talk to each other!!!
This story had love, heartbreak, angst, and it was sexy too.  It made me cry and laugh.  I really enjoyed it.

by SE Hall and Erin Noelle
I have loved everything by both of these authors, and I was really excited to read this co-authored book.  
Graham is Bryce, Bryce is Graham, and his brother Devon...is dead.

Jocelyn Craig was never a part of the plan in his search for answers, and neither was what they find, together.

Love, freedom, truth...will she choose what has always been or what could possibly be? 
This book sucked me in from the beginning.  I loved both Bryce/Graham and Jocelyn.  Bryce/Graham was sexy and a little arrogant.  Jocelyn was smart, funny and beautiful, and not afraid to go after what she wants.  This book also had great supporting characters that I immediately adored. 
The story keeps you on the edge of your seat.  You can tell as the story goes that everything isn't adding up, and I couldn't wait to get to the conclusion.  I liked that this wasn't a typical romance novel.  It wasn't all sex and mush, it actually had a great twist, but it still managed to be sexy and hot.

I definitely recommend this book!  It was a 4.5 star read for me, with great characters and a little mystery to keep you going!!  Both of these authors can create amazing characters that stick with you long after you have finished the book.

Schooled 4.0 by Deena Bright
I am a huge fan of Angelisa Stone, and Deena Bright is one her pen names, and this is her new book, and I am super excited to share it with you!

Displaying SCHOOLED 4.0 FULL JACKET.jpg 
This book looks sexy and hilarious and I can't wait to get my hands on it!!

Here is the synopsis, should be released sometime around the end of September!!!

Schooled 4.0
The “SMUT-TACULAR” Teachers’ Edition
Four Books in One
“How far will you go for an A?”
The horrifying shock of witnessing her husband banging his skank-whore secretary spurred this ever-wholesome and rule-following teacher to seek some new lessons of her own.  A young teacher learns about sexuality, pleasure, and satisfaction from rather unlikely and forbidden teachers, her former students, now recent college graduates.  Not only does she get SCHOOLED by the beautifully-built, all-American football player who struggled to pass her class, but she also learns a few tricks from the innocent, well-read, and thoroughly sexy bookworm.  Both men teach her that not all curricula worth learning comes from a book.  But when it’s time to make THE FINAL LESSON PLAN, the newly-sexualized teacher must take the curriculum further into the bedroom and even closer to her heart in order to decide which scholar will graduate “cum lade.” 
But while the teacher is working on her lessons, her friend is making some heat of her own in CHAR GRILLED JASPER, burning up the pages with sexy secrets and sizzling sensuality.  Meanwhile, a “girls only” class is experimenting in the sciences with a focus on chemistry, physics, and of course anatomy in ALL GIRLS’ SCHOOL.

Bittersweet Catastrophe (Second Chances 2.5)
by Maureen Mayer
This book is the third in a series, and it was only supposed to be a novella, but it's almost 200 pages, and a ton happens!!!  This is the continuation of Shayne and Liberty's story, who we meet in book 1.  I have really enjoyed this series, and this one didn't disappoint. 
For•ev•er (fɔˈrɛvə; fə-): without end; everlasting; eternally
It might have taken twenty-two years to find Liberty, but now that Shayne has her, he’s not willing to let her go without a fight.
Shayne and Liberty finally found their forever, leaving Shayne’s past indiscretions behind and moving forward to start a life together. But what if forever wasn’t truly in the stars for them?
What should be one of the happiest times in their lives as newlyweds quickly turns into a race against time. Liberty must choose between accepting her fate and protecting her family, and taking a risk that could ultimately end in more heartache.
Liberty’s decision will test the strength of their trust, but is it enough to keep Shayne from breaking down altogether and losing the woman he loves? 
I loved Shayne in Relinquishing Liberty, and that just grew in this book.  He is a little bit of a bad boy, but with a huge heart, and he LOVES Liberty with everything he has.  Liberty frustrated me a bit in this story, but without giving too much away, I think I would have done what she did, had I been in her position.

This book was sexy, and heart breaking at times.  I wanted to scream at Liberty and hug her also.  I loved that we got Shayne's POV in this story, I loved getting into his head.  This book made me laugh, but also made me sob like a baby.  I experienced every heart break with Shayne and Liberty and it completely sucked me in.

I really liked this continuation of Shayne and Liberty's story and I can't wait for more.  There is one more book in this series coming, and I can't wait.  The first 2 books in the series are on sale for $.99 right now, so if you haven't had the pleasure of reading them yet, now is the time!

Cover Reveal for Raced
Driven is one of my all time favorite series, and Raced is a novella from Colton's POV and it comes out in September.  I am ecstatic!
Here is the cover, synopsis and a blurb from the book
Colton Donavan lived life in the fast lane, but it took Rylee Thomas to teach him what racing was all about.


You think you know me?

Think again.

*Raced is not a complete re-write of the Driven Trilogy. This companion explores pivotal scenes as well as some new ones written in Colton Donavan’s point of view that were not previously published in Driven, Fueled, and Crashed. Hear his thoughts, experience his inner-turmoil, and laugh with him on his journey as he overcomes his demons and accepts what it means to love.  

This novella is for the devoted readers of the Driven series. It is recommended that this companion be read after Driven, Fueled, and Crashed.


“Well, according to you, I took the checkered flag last night, Rylee...” I say as I take a step toward her trying to snap my thoughts in line, make up a reason for being here besides the need to make sure she’s okay when I could have just picked up the fucking phone. I resist the urge to reach out and touch her because I know if I do, my dick will rise to the occasion and do the talking for me. And fuck if I know what it will say.
She licks her lips, dick beginning to win the internal thought process when I suddenly figure out my angle – my in – my stupid ass excuse for showing up the morning after like some pussy-whipped douchebag. Because fuck, you can’t get pussy-whipped after just one taste. Shit like that takes time to acquire.
Or so I’ve heard.
This man might be drawn to the pussy palace but fuck if its queen will hand out orders that I’ll obey.
I take another step toward her, still undecided about my excuse for being here when I glance down momentarily and see her nipples harden through her tank. Well at least I know she’s still attracted to me. Let’s see if I can make her like me again. Give me another chance.
Bingo. Truth shall set me free. There’s the answer. I just want another chance when I’ve never wanted one before.
And therein lies the second question, another chance at what though?

Colton is one of my all time favorite book boyfriends, and Rylee is probably my favorite female character.  I can't wait to get more of these two.  Pre order is available for this book now, and also Becks and Haddie have a book coming out early next year.

There is also a giveaway available for signed books and a kindle!!!

Love, by George
by Robert Taylor
I was gifted this book by a dear friend because a friend of her's wrote it, and she contributed on a some of it.  Both story content and editing.  I had no expectations going in and I was pleasantly surprised.  
Love by George is the story of poet Hope and online dating mogul George. Both at risk of joining the terminally single, they stumble upon love the old-fashioned way - by chance - after being pulled for the same random drug and alcohol test. Struggling with the paltry income from her greeting card business, Hope accepts a position at Love by George, Chicago's premier dating service. She makes an immediate impression on George, the company's founder, a bachelor torn between the pursuit of wealth and feeling truly alive. On New Year's Eve, it happens: midnight passion, long in the making, caught on camera. The consequences of a single kiss were never weighed, let alone the PR ramifications of one after another after another. Now what? One thing is certain: With the Paparazzi lurking, George's next move will be no secret. Will their first intimacy be their last?
Love, by George was a fun light-hearted read, that I immensely enjoyed.  It was an innocent look at falling in love by chance.  The characters were funny, sweet and completely loveable.  It was romantic without being cheesy or sappy, which I appreciated.  The relationship between Hope and her family was fantastic.  They were quirky and loving, and I wanted to have a Holiday dinner with them.  We also had a character that we hated, which every good romance needs at least one.   This book is sweet and hopeful.
This story is innocent (no sex) but it is still a great read.  It is fun, sweet, romantic, and a little quirky.  This is Robert Taylor's debut novel and he did a fantastic job.  This book proves that you can have a great romance, without all the angst and sex.  This was a solid 4 stars for me.  I hope you all enjoy it!!

All That Matters by Michelle Congdon
She is a teen sensation and also the infamous daughter of a renowned rock star and a Hollywood starlet.
Eighteen-year-old Harper Hudson is spoiled, wild and troubled. Still dealing with the loss of her twin sister and surviving a horrifying event that she has kept secret, Harper relies on constant partying, alcohol and drugs to help her forget.
He is her cousin and a straight ‘A’ student trying to juggle football and a medical degree.
Adopted as a baby, there isn’t anything twenty-one year old Jackson Hayward wouldn’t do for the people who raised him. But the last thing on his mind is to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a doctor. And Jackson has a secret of his own. He isn’t the perfect son his family are led to believe.
A forbidden romance they never saw coming.
Sent away to live with her Aunty and Uncle in Australia, as punishment for her latest stunt, the last thing Harper wants is to be babysat by her over-achieving, do-gooder cousin, Jackson. He is moody and overbearing, but there’s something about him that Harper can’t seem to ignore.
Jackson didn’t mean to fall for the rebellious wild child. But seeing small glimpses of her true personality shine through made it impossible not too. He knows the secret she keeps is the reason behind her destructive behavior and he is willing to risk whatever it takes to try to help her. But can something so broken ever be truly fixed? And can someone with painful secrets of his own save her without getting caught up along the way?
When I started this book I was not a fan of Harper.  She seemed spoiled and hell bent on ruining her life, and those around her.  But the more we learn about her past and her family, the more loveable she becomes.  And Jackson is completely the good boy, we think.  But the more we learn about him, we learn he is hiding a ton and trying to convince everyone around him that he is perfect.  I wanted to hug him!!

I will admit that the cousin thing freaked me out a little at first.  But, Jackson is adopted, and they did not really grow up together.  As the story progressed, I definitely rooted for them.  
This story definitely sucked me in and had me feeling for the characters.  I wanted them to figure out the stuff they had going so they could have a happily ever after.  
Displaying FMR-AllThatMatters3 (1).jpg 
I really enjoyed this book and I definitely rooted for the characters.  It does contain some mature issues discussed.  A 4 star read for sure, you should all read!  And, it's only $1.99!  This is Book 2, but it can be read as a standalone, and is not a cliffhanger.
