The Impossible Vastness of Us
by Samantha Young

I am a huge Samantha Young fan, as well as a YA fan, so I was very excited to read this one.



Synopsis:
India Maxwell hasn’t just moved across the country—she’s plummeted to the bottom rung of the social ladder. It’s taken years to cover the mess of her home life with a veneer of popularity. Now she’s living in one of Boston’s wealthiest neighborhoods with her mom’s fiancé and his daughter, Eloise. Thanks to her soon-to-be stepsister’s clique of friends, including Eloise’s gorgeous, arrogant boyfriend Finn, India feels like the one thing she hoped never to be seen as again: trash.
But India’s not alone in struggling to control the secrets of her past. Eloise and Finn, the school’s golden couple, aren’t all they seem to be. In fact, everyone’s life is infinitely more complex than it first appears. And as India grows closer to Finn and befriends Eloise, threatening the facades that hold them together, what’s left are truths that are brutal, beautiful, and big enough to change them forever…

I really enjoyed this story, and the characters were awesome.  While there are some romance aspects in this story, it is really more about growing up and building relationships.  This is a great coming of age story about deciding who you are and what you want to be. 
I loved how the relationship developed between India, Eloise, and Finn.  I also wanted a little more at the end.  This was a great story, but it ended a little abruptly for me. 
This book is not out yet, but comes out next week and is available for pre order now.  Pre Order Link

Eight
by ES Carter

This is book 6 in the Love by Numbers series, but can be read as standalone.  We met Josh and knew a little of his story in previous books, and I couldn't wait to read more. 


Synopsis:
I'm sorry for your loss.
Why do people say that?
When someone you love is taken from you, when a part of you dies along with them, you haven't lost them like you would your car keys or mobile phone. They aren't stuck down the side of the sofa or left in the ignition of your car for you to find later. You haven't absentmindedly put them somewhere and forgotten. You will never lose them because they live in you.
The soul crushing hurt that burns your lungs with every breath you take comes from knowing where they are and not being with them.
The ugly and real definition of grief is being left behind.
I'm sorry they left you.
I'm sorry you are alone.
I'm sorry it hurts to breathe.
Loss; it doesn't even compare.
She was my first love.
She is my last love.
I am an empty husk who pretends to be filled with enough love for those of us she left behind.
Our little girl and newborn son need me.
I am both mother and father now.
I am hollow and empty.
I am a shell.
So why does the girl with the face of an angel and eyes that mirror my emptiness, look at me like I'm her everything?

This was an incredibly moving and heartbreaking story.  This book picks up right after Josh's wife dies, and it was so so sad.  I have read many books about grief, but this one was so touching.  Josh basically shuts down after Laura dies, and basically shuns his whole family. Until finally, almost a year alter, he realizes that he has to get his life together, and he moves the family to Ibiza. 
And then he meets Halle.  Halle is drawn to him, but at the same time, he is a bit of a jerk to her.  The inner turmoil Josh feels as he starts to have thoughts and feeling for Halle is saw real and raw.  Watching the relationship grow, and seeing Josh come back into himself was such and incredible journey. 

This book is available now, and I highly recommend it.  It is an incredibly well written, heart breaking story about grief, and moving on.  Grab it now!!!

Roommates with Benefits
by Nicole Williams

I am a huge fan of Nicole Williams, and I was excited to read this one!!

Synopsis:
Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls wouldn’t mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.

We have nothing in common . . . except our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

This is a sweet friends to lovers story.  Hayden was a strong independent girl, who changed her whole life to chase her dreams.  She was a little naïve, but I really liked her.  Spren cracked me up.  He said what he was thinking, even when he shouldn't.  And he always apologized to her when he was in the wrong, which doesn't.  I wanted to scream at both of them at different points in the book. 

This was a sweet, sexy story, with just the right amount of angst.  I loved the characters, even the supporting ones.  Nicole Williams writes such a great story that completely sucks you in!!!

This is live and available now and is a complete stand alone.

Wicked Favor
by Sawyer Bennett

Sawyer Bennett is an incredibly versatile author, she writes so many sub genres.  This one is a spin off an earlier series, but I have not read that one.  So you do not to have read that to read this one.  It is very sexy, with all kinds of twists and turns. 

Synopsis:
As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

This book is incredibly sexy, but it is not smut at all,  There is a ton of story and great characters.  I love Jerico and Trista.  Jerico is a sexy, broken alpha.  In the beginning, he's cold and a bit a jerk.  But as we learn his story we know why he is that way and he starts to warm up, and I ended up loving him. 
Trista is an innocent sweet girl when we meet her, but she is interested in the sex club.  Jerico introduces to the sinful world of the sex club.  The chemistry between Jerico and Trista is instant!!   
This story in insanely sexy, with all kinds of twists and turns, and great characters.  There is going to be another book soon!!

The Foxe and The Hound
by RS Grey

I love RS Grey, so I was so excited to read this one.  She writes the best light hearted romantic comedies.

Synopsis:
When your life is a hot mess at twenty, it’s cute. At twenty-seven…well, not so much.

It’s just that my lofty dreams—making it as a real estate agent, paying rent on time, showering daily—have stayed just that: dreams. Oh, and love? I’ve decided love might be a little ambitious for me at the moment. Instead, I’ve settled for the two guys who will never leave me: Ben & Jerry.

That is, until Dr. Adam Foxe takes up residence as the town’s new vet.

With his strong jaw, easy confidence, and form-fitting scrubs, it’s not long before every housewife in Hamilton is dragging neglected tomcats in for weekly checkups.

Like everyone else, I’m intrigued. Even after I spoil my chance at a good first impression, he still offers me a proposition I can’t refuse: play his girlfriend at a family function and he’ll hire me as his real estate agent. Welcome to love in the 21st century.

It’s too bad I underestimated Adam’s irresistible charm and the undeniable attraction that burns between us. The day he pins me to the wall and silences me with a kiss, the line between reality and ruse begins to blur. Every teasing touch brings me to my knees. Every kiss promises more.

It looks like my hot mess of a life is about to get a little hotter.

I love RS Grey, her books are hilarious.  I fell in love with Madeleine from the beginning.  She was so real, and I could totally relate,  Her life was a mess, and I wanted to scream at her, and at the same time hug her.  And Adam Foxe was so swoony, but also a bit of a mess.  He was the king of mixed signals, but he was also so loveable.  And he's a vet!!  I am a dog lover, so all the stuff with the dogs was so fun!!   

This book is live and available now!  It is a complete stand alone, and if you are looking for a well written, light, romantic comedy, this is the perfect summer read!!

The Clover Chapel
by Devney Perry

I discovered Devney Perry recently when I read her first novel, The Coppersmith Farmhouse, and I fell in love.  Her story sucked me in immediately, so I was very excited to read this next book.  Technically this is book 2, but can be read as a standalone.

Synopsis:

She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.
 After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.
Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

I fell in love with this book from the beginning.  This is a story about redemption and second chances.  My heart broke for Emmeline throughout the book.  When Nick leaves her, and her horrible family, just made me so sad.  But she was strong, and kept going, and I loved her so much.  And Nick is a great alpha male.  He is sexy, and sweet in that alpha way that I just swoon for. 
This is a sweet second chance romance and I loved it.  I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet alpha, second chance romance.  It is incredibly well written and I absolutely adored it!!!


The author is also having a giveaway!!  She is giving away 2 $50 Amazon GC's and a signed copy of The Clover Chapel, so make sure and enter!!

Ruckus
By LJ Shen

I loved Vicious, and I could not wait to read this one!!  We met Dean and Rose in Vicious, and I was so excited to get into there story. 

Synopsis:
Rosie
They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.

Dean

They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

LJ Shen has a way of sucking you in completely.  The characters are so flawed, but so great at the same time.  Dean really started out as an A Hole!!  He was a jerk in the previous book, but he took it to a new level in this one.  And as we got more insight into Dean and his story, it was truly heartbreaking.  
When we met Rosie in the previous book. we knew she was sick, so I wasn't really sure how this book would go.  But I truly admired her!  She is so strong, and knows who she is and what she wants.  Her relationship with her parents about killed me and I was so mad at them.  This book definitely invoked a ton of emotion, I was mad, I was sad, I smiled.  It covers all the bases for sure!!

This book is live and available now, and it's on sale for $.99 right now, so grab it.  This book is heartbreaking, sexy, and full of angst.  I loved it!!!

A Girl Like Me
by Ginger Scott

This is the second book in the Like Us duet, following A Boy Like You, this cannot be read as a stand alone.  A Boy Like You had a crazy cliffhanger so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. 

Synopsis:
I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.


I fell in love with these characters in A Boy Like You and I couldn't wait to find out there ending.  The end of the previous book left me with so many questions.  This duet is very different.  It started to lean a little paranormal, and I really wasn't sure where it was going. 
Watching Wes and Josselyn come develop was such a great ride.  Josselyn went from a lost and broken girl into such a strong inspirational character, I loved her.  And Wes was a sweet swoony boy that helped her along the way. 
This is a inspiring story that has all kinds of funky twists and turns.  It's about moving on and finding out who you are, and writing your own ending.  I loved every second of it 

Both books in this duet are available now, and everyone should absolutely read them!!

Cheaters Regret
by Rachel Van Dyken (RVD)


I have been anxiously awaiting Thatch and Austin's story since we met them in Cheater!! 

Synopsis:
Austin Rogers’s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her—as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex’s downfall—but so does kissing him.
Thatch Holloway, a plastic surgeon straight out of residency, knows he ruined the best thing that ever happened to him. But not all cheaters are created equal. He got himself into this messed-up situation—true—but he has his reasons for what happened, and he’d do it all again to protect Austin.
He’s not over her. And she’s not over him.
Austin wants closure, but since Thatch refuses to give it to her, she takes matters into her own hands. She needs to write a human-interest piece for her MBA, so she demands the full plastic-surgery experience. Sparks fly as they’re forced to work together. But Thatch isn’t afraid to play dirty in return. And he’s still hiding something—something that has the power to destroy not only Austin but their second chance at finding forever…

We met Thatch and Austin in Book 1 of this series, but we don't much about them.  When this book starts out, Thatch has broken Austin's heart and he was quite the jerk.  I really hated him for a good part of the book!!  We know there is more to the story, and as that unfolds, I started to feel bad for him, and eventually, I ended up loving him!!
I loved Austin from the beginning, she is sweet and adorable and hilarious.  Her junk food obsession cracks me up.  And as always with RVD's books, the supporting cast is amazing.  I loved getting more of Lucas and Avery. 

This is a sexy, light hearted read and I loved it!!  It is available now, and Book 1 is also on sale!

Until Sage
by Aurora Rose Reynolds

I am a huge Aurora Rose Reynolds fan.  She writes great alpha males, with fun female characters, with just enough angst.  And this one fit right in!


Synopsis:
Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

We met Kim and Sage in Until Ashlyn, but this book can be read as a standalone.  I fell in love with Sage from the beginning, and Kim was a sweet and loveable girl.  Sage had the right amount of Alpha, without being a jerk.  This sucked me in from the beginning and I devoured it.  I can't wait for more!  Another BOOM!!
This book is part of a series, and I love the whole thing, but this can be read alone.  There was the right amount of drama and angst, and it kept me completely enthralled.  This is live today and I highly recommend it!!

Lost Rider
by Harper Sloan


Lost Rider is the first book in a new series by Harper Sloan.  I am a huge Corps Security fan, so I was excited when I heard about this one. 
Synopsis:
In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

This is definitely a western romance.  I adored the characters from the very beginning.  Leighton was fun and sassy, and she cracked me up.  But also broke my heart just a little bit.  And Maverick was sexy and troubled, and he came across as a douche in the beginning, but I quickly fell for him.  This is a great second chance romance with tins of back story!  This story has all the fells.  Tons of heartbreak, and new beginnings.  It also introduces us to several new characters I can't wait to get more of!!! 

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for more in this series.  It is sexy and fun, and lots of swoon!!  This book releases tomorrow, and is available for pre order now!

The Hot Shot
by Kristen Callihan

I love this whole series and I couldn't wait for this book, all the books in this series can be read as a stand alones. 


Synopsis:
First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more... 
What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn't my usual type. She's defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I'm with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea. 
Chess is looking for a relationship. I've never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We're roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it's getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she's becoming my everything.

Trick is... Now that I've made her believe I'm a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

I loved this book!!  I was completely sucked in from the beginning.  I loved the development of the relationship, from friendship to more.  Chess was such a different character, she was stubborn and sassy, and she cracked me up.  Finn Mannus is super swoony, but somewhat frustrating!!  There was a huge portion of the book where I wanted to scream at both of them.  I also loved getting a little bit of Dex and Fiona from the previous book.  This book is a great blend of sexy, sweeet and angst!  I highly recommend it.

This book is live and available now.

The Player
by K. Bromberg

I am a huge fan K Bromberg fan, so I was super excited to read this one.  This book made me swoon hard, reminiscent of Driven. 

Synopsis:
Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on. 
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.
But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?

I fell instantly got Easton.  He was incredibly relatable and I loved him.  His struggles and how he deals with everything thrown at him, makes me want to hug him. I felt like Easton and Scout were a great match, they are both trying to live up to there fathers legacy.  I loved seeing the relationship progress and both of them figuring out who they really are. 

This is book 1 in a duet and it does end in a cliffhanger.  I loved this book and cannot wait for more, the end almost killed me!! 
The Player is available now!!  Purchase Link

Ain't He Precious
by Juliette Poe (Sawyer Bennett)

This is a sweet southern story that I really loved, Sawyer Bennett wrote this under the pen name Juliette Poe.  At first I didn't understand that, but I can honestly say it was like reading a book by a completely different author.

Synopsis
Welcome to Whynot, North Carolina, population 3,872. It has one stoplight, one bar, and the one-and-only Trixie Mancinkus.

Eleven years ago, Trixie graduated Harvard Law, turned down a job offer from one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston, and headed home to Whynot to open her own firm. Not only did she leave behind the big city, but she also left her boyfriend of three years. And just so we’re clear… that would be me.

So what am I doing in Whynot at this very moment? It seems Trixie needs help with a legal case and for some insane reason, she called on me for assistance. I’ve been in town for five minutes, and I’m every bit as out of place as I feel. Trixie is all sweet, southern curves to my tailored suits and high-priced haircuts. It’s a culture clash of north versus south and about the only thing we have in common is our physical attraction to each other.

But I have a new motto since coming to Whynot: When life hands you lemons, all you need is a little sex and sweet tea to make things better.

This is a sweet second chance story.  I loved all the characters.  Trixie is the epitome of southern belle.  And Ryland was a big city boy who never got over Trixie leaving him 11 years ago. 
If you are looking for a sweet second chance romance, this is a great one.  I can't wait for more in this series. 
This is available now.  Purchase Link

by Corrine Michaels

I am in love with Corrine Michaels and I have loved all of her books, and I couldn't wait for

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I'm done being invisible.




It's time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He's kind, sexy, and attentive―everything a girl could want.

That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from

We met Grace and Trent in previous books, but this book can be read as a stand alone.  I loved the characters, and I loved that we got a little of the characters from the previous books.  I love the Hennington brothers, and I loved getting more of them.  Trent is definitely going to make it into my book boyfriend shelf.  I loved seeing Grace and Trents relationship progress, and seeing how they came together.  There was some heartbreaking parts, and some angst that made me want to scream at them both!!

A Boy Like You
by Ginger Scott

I adore Ginger Scott, and I loved this book from page 1. 

Synopsis:
They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me.

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared.

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream.

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it feels…familiar.

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.

This story was heartbreaking, and sweet, and totally confusing!  With each turn of the page I thought I had it all figured out, and then something else would happen.  I loved Wes/Christopher.  He challenges Jocelyn to be a better person and pushes her to be more.  And Jocelyn is troubled, but strong.  I loved how the relationship developed, and watching them both come into there own.  This story is heartbreaking at parts, and made me so sad.  This book made me feel the whole gamete of emotions, happiness, sadness, frustration, and confusion.  

This ends on a cliffhanger, but it does end with hope.  This is the first book in a duet, and I can't wait for the next book.  This is a YA book, so it's very innocent, but it invokes so much feeling.  This is live now!!

Cole
by Tijan

Cole is a spin off of Carter Reed, but can be read as a stand alone.  I am a huge fan, so I couldn't wait to read this one. 

Synopsis:
I shouldn’t have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Cole Mauricio.


I am a sucker for a dark mafia romance, so this one sucked me right in.  Addison broke my heart from the beginning.  Grief stricken from the death of her husband and just trying to move on.  Then she meets Cole, he is mysterious and dark, and she is drawn to him.  I love the twists and turns in this story.  Tons of surprises, and I loved the supporting cast as well.  The development of the characters is spot on, and completely consumed me.   

This book is available now, and I highly recommend it.  If you like dark, gritty, mafia romances, this is a great read.

Blush For Me
by Kristen Proby

I am a huge Kristen Proby so I was so excited to get my hands on this one.  This is the third book in the Fusion series. 


Synopsis:
As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

We met Kat in the first 2 books and I loved her.  She's funny, take charge and has a kick ass style.  Kat meets Mac in the first chapter, and he was amazing,  sexy, kind, and completely smitten with Kat.  Kristen's books are always a light and fun read with some drama thrown in, and this one fits right in.  It is fun and sexy, and I love getting to know all the characters.  Kristen is so good and making you love the supporting cast as well as the main characters.  I can't wait for more from this series!!   

Blush For Me releases on March 7, but is available for pre order.  And if you pre order you will receive an early excerpt!!

There is also a giveaway for a $50 GC to Amazon, so make sure and enter!!

The Wright Brother
by KA Linde

This is the first book in the new series by KA Linde and I loved it, I can't wait for more. 


Synopsis:
I'd dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

This book sucked me in from the beginning.  I loved Emery.  She is a smart no nonsense girl that knows what she wants.  And Jenson was sexy and arrogant, but he also pissed me off for quite a bit of the book.  However, he came around.  I loved the family dynamic of the Wright family.  The secondary characters in this story were awesome.  I can't wait to read more about the whole family.  And, the cover is smoking.  It is sexy without being tacky, I love it. 
This book is available now and I highly recommend it.  The next book in the series is called The Wright Boss and is die out in May!
  
Sweet Rivalry
by K Bromberg

This is a novella about new people we haven't met before.  This is a stand alone.

Synopsis:
Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. Thi
s time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

This is a novella, but she packs a lot of story into 120 pages.  I loved the banter between Ryder and Harper.  He is a sexy, bearded AND tattooed.  And she is confident and funny.  If you are looking for a light, fun and sexy read, this is a great pick!!



Sweet Rivalry is fun, and has the right amount of angst.  I highly recommend it, and it is available now!

Royally Matched
by Emma Chase

I am a huge fan of Emma Chase and I loved the first book in this series so I was super excited to read this one!



Synopsis:
Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit... and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

We meet Henry in book 1 where is he is forced into a position he is not at all prepared for.  At the beginning of this book, he is drowning.  I wanted to hug him!  Henry never wanted to be king, and he is struggling greatly!!  And Sarah is a sweet, innocent girl that automatically grabs his attention, even when he should stay away,
I loved seeing Henry and Sarah evolve and find themselves.  They both came into there own, not only with each other, but individually as well. 
I highly recommend this whole series.  Both books are sexy, funny, sweet, and moving.  You must read both books, and there is another one coming!!  I can't wait!

Fake Fiancee
by Isla Madden Mills

I am a huge fan of this author so I was excited for a new one from her. 
Synopsis:
They say nothing compares to your first kiss, But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience. Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL. He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up. He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed. Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs, He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate, And he’d never get another piece. A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . . And I was lost. I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée. I forgot we weren’t REAL. Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist, Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

I really enjoyed this book, and there is much more to the story than the synopsis implies.  I adored both characters.  Max is a hero, and sexy, and a bit of a douchebag.  And Sunny was strong and independent, and I loved her.  She was not afraid to stand up to the Quarterback.  There is a ton of history with these characters, and I highly recommend this book.  It is light and sexy and fun.  And I am probably in the minority when I say this, but I don't love the cover, so please don't let that sway you.  You should still read this book!! 

This book is live and available now, and is only $.99 right now, so grab it quick



Singe
by Aly Martinez

Singe in the first book in a new series by Aly Martinez.  I have loved her other series so I was very excited to read this one. 

Synopsis:
She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

This book was heartbreaking and sexy and I loved it.  It sucked me in from the beginning.  Jude and Rhion were such great characters.  Both flawed and a little broke, but also strong and destined to be together. 
Singe is fast paced and suspenseful with a little twist thrown in.  This is the first book in a new series, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.  There are so many great characters in this story, I am excited to get more insight into them. 

Singe is the first book in this series, but it is not a cliffhanger.  It is available now and you should definitely read it, I highly recommend it!!

Defy
by LJ Shen


Defy is the prequel to Vicious, the first book in the Sinners of Saint series.  This is a novella and can be read as a standalone. 

Synopsis:
My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it.

I fell in love with this book right away.  It is sexy and forbidden, and I loved the characters.  Jaimie was a dirty talker and Melody was funny, and a little lost, but she was also a strong heroine.  This is a novella, but it has a ton of story to it.  It is fast paced and super hot!  I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait for the other books in the series. 
Defy is available now and is only $.99 for a limited time, so grab it quick!
