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.
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.
One word.

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!!
Filthy Foreign Exchange 2
by SE Hall and Angela Graham
I really enjoyed Filthy Foreign Exchange 1, but it ended on the quite the cliffhanger, so I was very anxious to get my hands on this one!

When Echo Kelly is invited on a backpacking trip throughout the UK, she jumps at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, refusing to let one fleeting past exchange stop her.
At least, that’s what she’s convinced herself of, until the moment she sees him again. It’s not the one-time “run-in” she was expecting, and therefore prepared to handle.
Instead, it’s an announcement she never saw coming…he’s the tour guide.
She’s got no backup plan for that.
I thought this was a great conclusion to Echo and Kingstons story.  We got answers to questions that were left open in the first book.  And we see Echo come into her own a little bit too.  I was already in love with Kingston, but this solidified that as well.  He was so sweet and sexy!
I really enjoyed both books in this series.  Other books that I have read by these 2 authors, have been very heavy on the sex, and that's not always bad.  But this one definitely develops such a great love story.  I highly recommend them!  Both books are available now!!And Filthy Foreign Exchange is on sale for $.99 and free in Kindle Unlimited
The authors are also having a giveaway for signed paperbacks!!

by Kristen Callihan
Idol is the first book in a new series by Kristen Callihan.  It is a sexy rock star story and I really liked it!!

I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?

As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse —and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything
Libby is a super fun sassy character and I loved her.  She cracked me up, but she was also a little vulnerable and I wanted to hug her a lot of the time as well.  Killian was a sexy rock star and I am always a sucker for those!!  They were a very unlikely couple, she was a country girl and he was a rock star extroidinaire.  They hit it off immediately and I loved watching them develop.  There was plenty of angst and I wanted to scream at both of them at times.  
I was a huge fan of Kristen Callihan's series Game On series, and this new series is off to a great start!  I can't wait for more!!

All The Rage
TM Frazier
I am a huge fan of this author so I was very excited to review this book!

They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I'm a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
Until him.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...

This book is a stand alone, but we do get glimpses of the characters from her previous books.  Rage was a very different female character, and honestly, it took me a while to start to like her.  She's very dark, and a little twisted.  But once we get some insight into her, you really start to understand her, and I cam around.

I instantly liked Nolan, and of course, as always, there was a few twists and turns I didn't see coming.  I loved Nolan and Rage's relationship, she always felt she wasn't normal, and he loved her for that!  
This book is dark and gritty, so be prepared, but I loved it.  It is a HEA and I highly recommend it.  

All The Rage Purchase Link 

by Jay Mclean
Coast is the followup to Kick Push, and must be read in order.  I loved Kick Push and couldn't wait for the conclusion of Josh and Becca's story.  Kick Push was quite the cliffhanger so I have been anxiously awaiting this one!
One life-changing summer. One boy. The boy. The boy who offered me safe touches and heart-stopping smiles - smiles he shared with his son. We filled our days with porch-step kisses, filled our ears with laughter, filled our hearts with love. Deep, soul-aching, desperate love. But love is misleading. It's an invisible, fleeting moment. Somewhere between false adoration and pure hatred comes an emotion, a vulnerable need, a single desire. It lives within the ones who miss it, who crave it, who know better than to expect it. Love is relentless. Even when that love turns to hate, turns to loathing, turns to pain. Love should heal you. But it can also break you. Believe me, I know... Because I'm Becca Owens - a broken girl... ...And he's Josh Warden - the boy who broke me. 
I love Josh and Becca!  There story was heartbreaking at times, and I was really not sure we were going to get a happy ending!  Josh is such a great male lead, he is sexy, sweet, funny, and an amazing dad!  I love his interactions with his son.  And Becca is somewhat broken, but also incredibly strong!!  
Coast is available today, and Kick Push is currently on sale!  I highly recommend these books, and you should grab them now!

by Rachel Van Dyken
Rachel Van Dyken has done it again.  Every time a new book comes out in this series, I always think there is no way it will surpass the book before, and I am always wrong!  
I have lost everything.
My purpose.
My love.
My soul.
Death knocks on my door, I want to answer, but every time I reach for the handle--the promise I made her, brings me back.
So I breathe.
I live.
I hate.
And I allow the anger to boil beneath the surface of a perfectly indifferent facade.
I am broken, I dont want to be fixed.
One last trip to New York, one last chance to redeem a lost part of the mafia family. The Empire is crumbling and it's my job to fix it, my job to mend the pieces that were scattered over thirty years ago.
The only issue is, the only way to fix, is to do something I swore I'd never do again.
An arranged marriage.
Only this time.
I won't fall.
Or so help me God, I'll kill her myself.
My name is Sergio Abandanoto, you think you know my pain, my suffering, my anger, my hate--you have no idea.
I am the mafia.
I am the darkness.
Blood in. No out.

Unlike other books in this series, this one cannot be read as a stand alone.  You must read Elude before you read this one.  Elude broke my heart, and I was so mad at the author.  And for a huge part of Empire, I was sad, and also mad at Sergio!  Valentina was a such a sweet and innocent girl, and I wanted to hug her so many times!  

Of course, as Rachel always does, Sergio came around and I loved him!  There were so many twists and turns in this story, and I love that!  Some I saw coming, some I did not.  I love seeing all the other characters as well.  They are so fun!  

This book is available now, as well as Elude!  I love this entire series and I highly recommend all of them!
