R E V I E W ➠ Southern Sunrise by Natasha Madison




Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
Emily
I fell in love with him when I was fourteen. Under the stars, he told me he loved me, and under the stars we promised to love each other always. But under the stars, he broke my heart by walking away.
He left me without a second glance. I was just an afterthought.
Now he’s back, but this time, I’m not falling for his Southern charm.
Maybe.
It’s time I get my happily ever after, even if part of me wishes he was still mine.
Ethan
I found out on my twenty-first birthday that everything I thought I knew was a lie, and the man I had grown up thinking was my father wasn’t.
The pain I felt blinded me, making it impossible to hear what anyone said.
I left them all behind, including her, my best friend and the woman I was going to marry.
Five years later, I’m back, only to find the woman I still love has another man’s ring on her finger.
She’s going to marry my best friend unless I stop her. And this time, I only have until sunrise to change her mind.

RELEASE DATE: July 7, 2020

Not my first read by the author and not my last. I have read almost every singe book by her and of course have read the other books in this series!

Okay, okay, okay…what just happened? I started reading this around 8pm and its almost 1am i am now finished and I’m…I have just cried on and off for hours. Have your tissue handy because this ones a heart-breaker. So by now we all know this is the love story of Ethan who is Savannah’s son, i feel like by this point you probably don’t want to start the series with this book so we all know who he is. I want sure what to expect to be honest, then i thought i knew what to expect then i was broken into pieces, felt every single word and cried right along. Sometimes trying to find yourself or who you are comes at a cost, and Ethan paid BIG! Emily, beautiful Emily… forever will love her, i felt every single break of hers, every year gone by alone, gah just so tragic but beautiful. 


If you want angst mixed with heartbreak, throw in some curves on the road AND then have it all try and find the same path… this is for you. I am so glad Ethan and Emily got their story, probably a critical and important one at that.  not the end but I’m throwing this into my “when I’m feeling sad’ pile so i can extra FEEL it when i re-read!

R E V I E W ➠ Hot and Heavy by Lacey Black


(Some Like it Hot Book 2)


He swore he wouldn’t touch her, but she’s about to test his restraint.
Prim and proper secretary Melodie Turner has been in lust for her boss for years . . . and she’s finally going to do something about it. P.I. Cole Sommers might be able to barely resist her sexy new attitude and flirtatious behavior, but when she takes a cue from his current case and decides to seduce Cole’s mind with highly provocative letters, she knows his body won’t be very far behind . . .
Cole is definitely in over his head. He’s got more cases than he can handle, but all he can think about is taking his secretary to bed, turning her over his knee, and showing her what happens to naughty girls who don’t behave. At every turn, Melodie is there, taunting him, teasing him, making him burn with a deep, undeniable need. But Cole promised her father that he’d protect her—even from himself—which means she’s off-limits.
Only he hadn’t counted on being the target of Melodie’s irresistible sensual assaults. Nor had he planned to lose his hardened heart in the battle . . .
Originally published as A Shameless Seduction by Janelle Denison.

RELEASE DATE: June 23, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have not yet tread book #1 in this series. But the blurb in this one really caught my eye, and yes this may have been on the shorter side but the SIZZLE was turned up WAY up!

Melodie and Cole are a couple that sizzles then calms but sizzles back up. It was so much fun to watch Cole confusing himself on his feelings and Melodie was the prime heroine. I am glad I gave this a try and I want to give out more but honestly don’t want to spoil it since it is such a shorter read! Always excited to read a Erika Wild book and looking forward to more.

R E V I E W ➠ Power Surge by Kennedy L. Mitchell




Now what?
Everything has changed, and not for the better. The not-so-perfect life I had as VP is gone, along with the team that’s been by my side each step of my political journey. Every move I make, every breath and thought, now affects millions, and the weight wears me down without Trey as a welcomed distraction.
They tell me war is coming, and I’m the one who has to stop it. But how is the question no one can answer. Past enemies lurk in the shadows while new ones hide in plain sight, stalking, watching, and waiting for the right moment to take me out. I need Trey back. I need them all by my side and ready to fight for me.
Can I undo the mess that my predecessor left in his wake, or will I break under the burden to save the world?
No pressure, right?

RELEASE DATE: June 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE me some Kenndy books. I also have read the previous 3 books in this series and am very anxious for book #5 the conclusion because this one took me by surprise!

What I want ot say so far is that yes each book is based on the same hero and heroine but you get so much action and the ride along with it…will have you wanting more. This is a political romance, so the only disclaimer I had so far was the romance part that exists but me being a die hard romance lover I always crave a lot…which the author did give me in book 3 I’ll never forget that and absolutely LOVED it…that said I also loved the beginning and in between…this book starts off with a BANG and I wasn’t sure where it was going to go, in which all I never know it’s more a TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE type of books..the good kind of surprise. I don’t want to give out too much because this is a you SHOULD READ FROM BOOK 1 type of read because well you want that build of relationship between the hero and heroine. This one is a little less romance and a lot of action, it has some beautiful romantic moments that will have you swoon right out of your panties! These two are a magnet for one another, when life throws them every curve possible, they not only maneuver it but also always end up at the same path. Just plain beautiful the hero and heroine’s relationship, the events…BE PREPARED!

I am SUPER READY FOR BOOK #5 the conclusion!!

R E V I E W ➠ Awakening by Evelyn Montgomery




Justin
A dark past.
A secret identity.
A future ruined by the one thing I can never control.
My curse.
I swore to protect them.
I promised to always stand by her side.
But how can I do that when all I have ever run from
comes crashing back into my life and steals away
all the hope I had for a future.
I swore to protect them, and I will.
I will do all I have to do to keep them safe.
Always.
Even if in the end,
it is over my dead body.
Rose
Fear.
Regret.
Voices I fear I will never overcome.
The final battle for my soul rages inside
and I am suddenly paralyzed from stopping it.
But I finally see the light.
The truth.
Find my strength.
The enemy doesn’t stand a chance
when the victim finally chooses to survive.
When I finally learn
it has no power over me.
My will is stronger now with him by my side.
Always has been. Always will be.
Forever.

RELEASE DATE: June 19, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have had the chance to read Book #1 already been looking forward to this one…was ready to see the conclusion. Justin and Rose’s story was a fast and beautiful one so the conclusion was a BLAST! I gotta say that the author has a way of twists and I mean hell I didn’t even know where this was going to go. I will say that the heroine is what I fell in love with more in this one she grew stronger and more secure of herself. The hero Justin…let’s just say really prepare. This is a type of book where I don’t want to give out too much because it’s worth the rush reading through this. Obviously I suggest reading Book #1 to start the adventure.

R E V I E W ➠ A Little Bit Wicked by Melissa Foster




What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.
Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?

RELEASE DATE: June 17, 2020

Justin, she said apologetically. “You know I swore off dating bad boys a long time ago.”
“That’s what you keep saying, but you have no idea how good bad can be.”

…It was her favorite country song. She couldn’t believe her ears. “Justin…?”

Not my first read by the author and not my last, MF is actually one of my top 5 favorite author’s and also one of my very first reads…so if you asked me how many books I’ve read by her…my answer would be ALL! This was an exciting NEW something from MF!

This is a TRUE LOVE story, paved with lot’s of obstacles and barriers and two opposite VERY opposite people who fit each other in every way possible. We have Justin the hero who is very manly but the biggest heart and the sweetest but in just a alpha and sexy way. Their flirting at the beginning and catching each other, IN LOVE with the process. This is slow burn but a very fun one! Both hero and heroine come from a troubling and broken pasts but I have to be honest the way they both come together isn’t just beautiful but inspiring and sweet and sexy and sensual. Like I said you will fall in love with JUSTIN continuesly through out the book!

In here you will get fun, laughter, sweetness, love and passion…the kind of passion in all aspects (family, relationship and actions). Truly an amazing start to a new series. Can’t wait for more!!

R E V I E W ➠ Agony by Kaylee Ryan




Reese
Cooper Reeves was the boy-next-door. Every milestone, every memory of my youth was entangled with his.
We were inseparable… until college.
It wasn’t his friends, girls or even sports that came between us— it was me.
Tired of being in the friend zone, I finally made a move. Turns out it was the wrong one.
Cooper walked away to play his first year of professional football and left me behind with a broken heart.
Cooper
It’s always been her. Even before I really knew what love was, Reese Latham was by my side, making me swear we’d be best friends forever.
And we were… until one night changed everything. I knew how she felt because I felt it too, but I pushed her away to save our friendship.
The longer we’re apart, the more I realize she’s not only my best friend, Reese is the love of my life.
I was kidding myself thinking I could let her go because now I know that living without her is the worst kind of agony. 

RELEASE DATE: June 18, 2020

Not my first by the author and I have read all her books and absolutely love the author’s style and words. That said, this is something a little bit different and new from her and so I was just jumping in. I will say that it does contain a slight trigger of mine, I say slight because I managed to get past it pretty fast and continue reading, without eeven blinking back.

Reese and Cooper are two people who have been inseparable through out their whole life, heck even their parents are best friends and in each other’s lives at all times. Their chemistry always is sparkling but Cooper does not want to do anything to ruing their friendship that means the world to him even if he might feel more for Reese and Reese doesn’t know how he feels the same for her. It’s basically a thin line that they both walk, because on one hand it would be so easy to fall into place and the other, no one want’s to risk losing a person. After all, their relationship is not just a friendship but a soul mate type of relationship in all the ways!

This will make you laugh, swoon and even fall in love with both hero and heroine but it will also break your heart, make you want to yell at them and mend it all together. For the first time I was not ready for the author to surprise me in the best way possible. This is a Cliffy and so be prepared because after Book 1 I am not sure which way it’s going to go. Very SLOW-BURN and I don’t want to give out too much but definitely need Book 2 already, like now!

R E V I E W ➠ Loner by Harloe Rae




“Everyone deserves a chance to be rescued.”
That’s the mantra I’m repeating when a well-equipped biker pulls over to save me. One glance at the scowl Crawford Doxe is wearing proves he isn’t impressed with the task. My efforts to change his mind deflate faster than the shredded tire at our feet. But disgruntled or not, my so-called hero still agrees to fix my flat.
I don’t expect to see Crawford again, but he’s suddenly very visible in our small town. Avoiding him would be my preference. That’s not how this story goes. For whatever reason, my daughter finds an ally in the broody mechanic. Denying her is something I do my best to avoid. I can only hope Crawford’s shine wears off before he tarnishes what little trust still exists.
As if the odds are ever on my side.
Commitments are a foreign concept to him. He doesn’t make any promises to try. That should’ve been enough for me to steer clear. It most certainly isn’t.
What follows can only be described as a disastrous clash of epic proportions.
But one indisputable fact remains.
That lone soul has no plans of opening his heart.

RELEASE DATE: Jume 11, 2020

This is not my first read by the author but I haven’t read lot of her books yet. That said this one was a enemy to which is my favorite.

 I can always appreciate this authors writing and words, she definitely has a way with them.  I lived Millie, she was like a little cute adorable referee between the hero and her mama the heroine. It was really sweet! Overall once I got warmed up more to the heroine and hero, they really do not hold back and it’s beautiful all around. Glad I was able to review this, looking forward to more!

R E V I E W ➠ Wrecked With You by J. Kenner




It’s hard to get in—but it’s hell getting out.
He’s spent a decade chasing shadows. Ten long years tracking down the man who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. And finally, Antonio Santos has found him.
All he needs is access to the exclusive private island. A carnal wonderland that only the elite can enter. But to gain access, Tony needs two things. The significant fee. And a woman.
An experienced operative with deadly skills, Stark Security agent Emma Tucker has no desire to be Tony’s arm candy, especially when she’s still reeling from a breakup. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires him. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny that his skills top the charts in the bedroom, too.
Bit by bit, admiration leads to passion as the mission twists and turns. Soon, they become lost in this island playground full of lust, greed, and danger. Where they could both lose their hearts … or their lives.

RELEASE DATE: May 26, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my top favorite author’s and I have read ALL OF HER BOOKS! Yes I said all haha there is quite a few, but this Stark Series was something I was soooo excited about and glad exists. This was a bad-ass read because the heroine is Eliza’s Sister (Quince and Eliza from Book ) and she is pretty bad-ass, honest, sweet, smart and doesn’t take shit from anyone.

Anotnio and Emma are a power-couple duo, before they even knew what was coming, they were drawn to one another. He pushes her buttons and she drives him crazy, perfect work relationship combo don’t you think?! But what happens when the line is blurred and they find out that aside from being great at their jobs that together, they spark something inside that both are surprised even exists anymore.

Honestly, I have to say that it took me a little to get into the story. It’s a lot more action and less romance in this one, I think it has to do with the heroine being an agent and very..independent and more rough I guess. And not in a bad way just in a not fully my style, I can appreciate the strength she has and both of them have some deep issues that stand in the way. Once I got into it, I was glued to the story. The ending took me by surprise. This series is a definite MUST READ!
