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.

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!

R E V I E W ➠ Master Manipulator by Nicole S. Goodin




From International Bestselling Author, Nicole S. Goodin, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
He was infuriating, arrogant and conceited. He was also my new seatmate.
Fifteen hours stuck next to the definition of tall, dark and handsome, and the only thing on his mind on our trip from California to Sydney… was me.
Ky Bateman made no secret of the fact he wanted me, and I made it clear he drove me crazy.
When my resolve finally wavered, we made a bet. I lost, he won, and I found myself on the back of his motorcycle, on the adventure of a lifetime.
I never intended to fall for the master manipulator, especially when I knew I was keeping secrets that could destroy everything between us.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Author note – Master Manipulator is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. 

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

New to me author and books, so I was kind of jumping in blind and wasn’t really sure what to expect. I have to say that this was a 50/50 mixed feelings for me. Even though I enjoyed their banter and the cat and mouse game, this was a lot more deeper than that, the secrets the manipulations but also the love…plot twist for sure. Also this has to be one of my shortest review’s because honestly I wasn’t sure how to take this in, or to write about it without giving it all away. I enjoyed both hero and heroine, the heroine a little bit more and their together, was just so beautiful but everything to that was….unexpected!

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I’ve read a a lot of them, so I really wans’t sure what to expect going in this and I gotta say she definitely kept to her type of writing style.

This is a twisted story if you will, Whiskey is definitely the hero but the villain too, this is a usual type of writing for the author and so I was expecting that but he was cruel at one point or another, if it wasn’t for the heroine I’m not sure i could really click with the book. She was very strong and took no shit.

R E V I E W ➠ Pin-Up Pilot by Claire Raye




Alexa Purdy has sworn off men and he’s her worst nightmare.
Arrogant and flirtatious, and now International Airlines’ newest pilot, Jake Campbell has a panty-dropping smile and a body to match. But he’s no match for Alexa’s cold heart.
Plagued by a bad reputation and a bitter divorce, Alexa is determined to make a name for herself outside of the bedroom. As International Airlines’ only female pilot, she’s had to work twice as hard and she won’t let someone like Jake bring her down.
But she’s surprised to find he’s nothing like she expected him to be. Even more surprising is her growing attraction to him and his obvious attraction to her—an attraction that causes her to question whether swearing off men is such a good idea after all.
But when Jake’s past resurfaces, she realizes getting close to him may be her biggest mistake of all.

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

You are the crayons to my coloring book…

Not my first read by the author, although I haven’t read many but the ones I have, I enjoyed. This was a little bit different for me, I usually do not like overly-strong heroines but this one was a mellow one for me. Now a little about my isse with overly-strong heroines they usually come with weaker hero’s and that’s a turn off. That said, that’s my personal feelings, doesn’t mean you or anyone else will not love it. That also said, the original PlayBoy Pilot wasn’t my absolute favorite to begin with.

The heroine Alexa is a very strong heroine, that knows what she wants and fights for it. Jake is a handsome but very cocky man with the sexiest accent. They both bud-heads they both have strong personalities and even though they clash but together they are fire! It’s a story of a fight, a fight for both of them together but for themselves and what’s right!

R E V I E W ➠ Lucky In Love by Kelly Elliott




When it comes to luck, I’m on the wrong end of the good side with more mishaps than I care to remember. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a happy guy: single, decent looking, wealthy, with a waiting list of people who want me to make their kid’s dreams come true with my custom-designed playhouses.
My life was exactly how I wanted it to be. That is, until Saryn Night walked back into my life with the intention of firing me. Good luck with that. One strong-headed, opinionated woman with a three-year-old little girl had turned my world upside down within five minutes. The moment they stormed into my office — bright blue eyes, curly brown hair, and a smile that would make any man fall to his knees, and that was just the daughter — I knew I was in for one wild ride that was guaranteed to turn my luck completely around.
Now, for once in my life, I found myself thinking that maybe, just maybe, I could finally be Lucky in Love.

RELEASE DATE: June 9, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous series books.

This was a hard book for me to read because it contained MY TRIGGERS and a pretty big one, so to say the start was pretty hard is very right. I will only say this about this trigger, it’s a hard feeling i get and i invest myself in all my readings. that said, the idea of the hero or heroine having relations with other people and it goes a little into detail and or they admit it, rubs me the wrong way. This is my personal way, doesn’t mean its negative i just can’t feeling wise turn it off. So yes it was a hard read but i very much enjoyed it because of the heroines little girl. Towards the ending of course also.
The hero is a well known playhouse builder and the heroine is a divorcee who moved back with her family afterwards.  Her mother hires the hero in hopes to hook them up but unfortunately that backfired. It’s a cat and mouse game with these two and the sweetest part of it all is the hero with the little princess. I’m glad I gave this a shot even with the beginning hick up.

R E V I E W ➠ Filthy Firefighter by Emma Louise




He looks like he belongs on stage, stripping out of his firefighter uniform, not running into a burning building to save me. But thank God he did.
When the smoke clears and my eyes focus on my savior, one look at his gorgeous face and tattoo-covered muscles, I know he’ll be too much for me to handle. It’s a good thing I never have to see him again, right?
Except, losing my home in a fire means finding somewhere new to live, and guess who just happens to be my new roommate? Hayden Flynn. The filthy-talking firefighter who’s been front and center of all of my dreams lately.
Our attraction is undeniable, but it’s the adventures he takes me on that has me falling for him, each new experience chipping away at the wall I’ve been hiding behind.
He wasn’t supposed to see past my scars.
He wasn’t supposed to break me apart piece by piece, then put me back together again.
He was just supposed to be a firefighter. I didn’t expect him to end up saving my life, in more ways than one.
Filthy Firefighter is a standalone story- inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s Cocky Bastard. It’s published as part of the Cocky Hero Club world, a series of original works, written by various authors, and inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling series.

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

Not my first read by the author but it has been a long time since I’ve read one of her books. This was one where I had mixed feeling about. And here’s why:

I know this was from just the beginning but it rubbed me the wrong way. The heroine is in a happy and actually seemed beautiful relationship with not hero and she ends it just because actually I wasn’t sure how to take her leaving him. It just started off wrong for the for the rest of the book. I will say that this book was pretty deep, some emotions will be brought out and the hero is very handsome and brave and everything…just couldn’t get myself into the book fully!

R E V I E W ➠ Wicked Bedmate by Jenika Snow




Getting fired and humiliated in front of everyone at my newly acquired secretarial job at Morgan Financial Holdings wasn’t how I’d seen my day going.
And then chaos—or maybe luck—ensued.
I was set up on a blind date, shocked that my former boss was giving me a month’s severance, and had the perfect interview lined up
Maybe things were looking up for me after all. And although finding a man should have been on the bottom of my to-do list, I couldn’t get Jason—the uber-sexy blind date—out of my head. Sexy and confident—or maybe arrogant—he had me yearning for more with just a smoldering look and a smirk of his lips.
But when a night of drinking led to getting in bed with him and having the wildest, most intense night of my life, I didn’t know if I should ask to see him again or do the good old walk of shame.
And it was when I walked into my interview the next day and came face-to-face with my prospective employer that the reality of my situation sank in.
Because there, sitting across from me with that devilish smile on his face, that knowing expression of what we’d done the night before, was the one and only Jason, my supposed one-night stand. Looked like my humiliation wasn’t over just yet.

RELEASE DATE: May 17, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I have read plenty to understand the witting style and in this one was a little bit off for me. It felt rushed at times where I maybe would have loved to see a little more development.

Jason the hero is a sexy, handsome and very level headed man, he is calm and in control. Except when to comes to Linda.

It’s in our blood.
Hard work, hustle, and a little Hennessy is the Reid motto.
He taught me to fight for everything I wanted in life.
Take down those who threaten the dream.
My dream is to marry the perfect man.
That man is my father’s best friend and I won’t stop until I have him.
And at Daddy’s wedding in Costa Rica, I plan to make that dream finally come true.
Then, my life will be smooth sailing.
Until a chance flight with an arrogant pilot throws me off course.
Literally.
Camilo’s decisions affect my future, and I can’t allow anything—not even a cocksure, ridiculously hot idiot—to stand in my way.
Problem is, he fights back.
Every battle I’ve won in life, he shoots down and exposes me for the fraud I am.
Trapped in paradise with my devilishly handsome nemesis seems like one of the seven circles of Hell…and, boy, is it getting hot around here.
He’ll strip me of my armor.
Remind me of my past.
Force me to rethink my future.
And help me live in the moment.
Will he steal my heart too?
One thing’s for sure.
This girl won’t give up without a fight.

RELEASE DATE: May 17, 2020

I have read the author before but only 1 or 2 books, so gong into this again I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have to say that this was not my style of characters. The heroine was a little bit too strong in the sense of a bitch and mean, but yes she does try and want to turn it all around to be a better person and just be better in general but her harshness lingered with me the whole book. The hero is more lovable and I enjoyed him the most, he is easy going, fun and cocky! But one plane ride will change everything for the both of them!

When our world fell apart, I thought our love would be the thing that held us together.
She was the love of my life. But she abandoned me when I needed her most.

She knows it.
She says she wants to help me serve my version of justice on the people who hurt me.
I’ll let her.
She probably thinks it will save her from me.
It won’t.

RELEASE DATE: May 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be one of my firsts many moons ago. So I am very familiar with her style but HELLO was I shocken with this. I did not know that enemy-to and ANTI-HERO came from the sweet Samantha! Okay, I kind of am not suprised but it was really really good. I haven’t read her books in a while therefore this was a good shock for me. I will note that I have not read Book 1 & 2 in this series but I have read the 2.5 Book Hold On.

What captures me the most in this story is that it was so relatable that I didn’t even know I was just reading at times, the events and actions…it was…it broke my heart but I was still lusting after it. First you get hit with the before, and it’s fierce young love then you get hit with the ugly and real…and then finally the present. I don’t do spoilers and if I don’t want what I type I might blur something out…it’s really one of those books that you do NOT want the spoilers because it’s that amazing! All I will say is don’t always believe what other’s say!

Not my first read by either author, I read Audrey’s book when I first started many moons ago and Kylie wasn’t too far after that so i am familiar with their writing style and all. And yes I have loved every book I’ve read by them!

What a sweet and fun story! I was hooked from the get-go. Everything actual happening was right on spot and the rest just flowed very well. The combo of author’s here is unreal because they both are very different but when together you get the best of both worlds. I really hope we get more from the ladies!!
