His impossibly improbable act set off a chain of events I couldnโ€™t make up if I tried, each one stealing a little more from me.

New to me author and books, so I was not sure what I was getting into. This was a very sweet slow burn. This was a huge twist from Mister Moneybags, which I will say right now I enjoyed very much. Jay and Valerie were not what I expected and it was sweet to watch them try and build together. Their chemistry together felt more real and realistic down to the sex scenes. A very sweet read for sure!

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




Alexa Purdy has sworn off men and he’s her worst nightmare.
Arrogant and flirtatious, and now International Airlinesโ€™ newest pilot, Jake Campbell has a panty-dropping smile and a body to match. But heโ€™s no match for Alexaโ€™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 Airlinesโ€™ only female pilot, sheโ€™s had to work twice as hard and she wonโ€™t let someone like Jake bring her down.
But sheโ€™s surprised to find heโ€™s nothing like she expected him to be. Even more surprising is her growing attraction to him and his obvious attraction to herโ€”an attraction that causes her to question whether swearing off men is such a good idea after all.
But when Jakeโ€™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 Alexaย is a very strong heroine, that knows what she wants and fights for it. Jakeย 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 โž  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 heโ€™ll be too much for me to handle. Itโ€™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 whoโ€™s been front and center of all of my dreams lately.
Our attraction is undeniable, but itโ€™s the adventures he takes me on that has me falling for him, each new experience chipping away at the wall Iโ€™ve been hiding behind.
He wasnโ€™t supposed to see past my scars.
He wasnโ€™t supposed to break me apart piece by piece, then put me back together again.
He was just supposed to be a firefighter. I didnโ€™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 Wardโ€™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 โž  Layover Lover by Jeannine Colette & Lauren Runow




Flying the friendly skies has been more than just a job to me. Itโ€™s my home.
Ten years ago I ran away from everything Iโ€™ve known and vowed never to return. That is until my flight is canceled due to weather, and Iโ€™m stuck in San Francisco.
Fate is not on my side when I end up in an Uber rideshare with the one man I thought Iโ€™d never see again.
Zack Hunt was my high school sweetheart, and the boy I walked away from without a note saying goodbye. Except, heโ€™s no longer a boy. No, this man is gorgeous, intense, and heated at the sight of me.
The anger searing off him is nothing compared to the way my heart pounds from seeing him again. Words are said. Feelings are crushed. But when he invites me into his bar to hash out our past, I find myself following him in, desperate for more.
The line between past and present is blurred when Zack challenges me to a dareโ€”come back home with him to see what I walked away from.
Call me a glutton for punishment, but I do.
Then I challenge him right back to live a day in my shoes.
We drive home to rediscover the past
We fly abroad to live in the present.
When we stop moving, we realize we may never have a future.
Layover Lover is a second chance romance, aligned by fate. Can two lost souls really find love again on a layover? Or do they need to keep flying?

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

“You’re a goddamn sire. A temptress. And I have no control.”

-Zack

Not my first read by either author and I have to say that I have loved everything I have read by them together or alone. So it comes with heavy heart when I have to say that this was not my cup of tea, and I’ll explain why.

I want to start off by saying that i am not a big fan of the hero pinning after the heroine in any type of shape or form, that said this unfortunately was not my cup of tea if you will. I have huge respect for the authors and have read their books before but I just could not get into liking the heroine here is why: she did not budge not even a milometer…it made me feel sorry for the hero and that’s a turn off. I get that she is a flight attendant but there was no budging even after the hero gave a lot AND HE GAVE A LOT, ALWAYS! Not a bad thing just my personal opinion and feelings. I wish the authors nothing but the best always.

R E V I E W โž  Southern Storm by Natasha Madison




Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
Savannah
Iโ€™m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.
Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town’s golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.
Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.
Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.
So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.
It was going great, everything was working out till my lie got out.
Beau
I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.
Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.
My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.
The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.
I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.
Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.

RELEASE DATE: May 19, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read every book in this series. Also Natasha happens to be one of my favorite author’s. I knew from Book #1 that if Savannah would to get a story how it would kind of go but I have mixed feeling about this one.

So I don’t know if this will ruin it fi you haven’t read book one but I hope you’re not starting with Book 3 since they are intertwined, so Savannah is from Book 1 where after watching Beau her love of her life (but he never knew) date around and be with other woman makes the biggest mistake of her life, and sleeps with his brother…his horrible POS brother LIAM. Anyways, what happens is that hero Jacob from book #1 who is the best friend of Beau, takes the responsibility on and say that it was his kid with Savannah. They lived with the lie for many years until at end of Book 2 the cat gets spilled out of the bag. Book 3 starts off with a bang and Beau finally finds out the truth and is livid. He hurts Savannah where honestly I think she deserved it, and more. I didn’t like Savannah from book 1 and having to come to term that this is her story i had mixed feelings. On one hand i wanted to like it but then I remembered she tore apart one brother’s relationship, and tore two best friends apart (for a while) it just rubbed me the wrong way. I couldn’t feel pitty for her in any sense. The ending mellowed me a little but not enough for me to really LOVE this book.

R E V I E W โž  Fight For Me by Corinne Michaels




I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.
At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever.
When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.
After my father’s death, Iโ€™m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. 
When weโ€™re together, itโ€™s as though time never stopped. Sheโ€™s still the one I want, but I donโ€™t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, itโ€™s her turn to leave me. 
Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want โ€ฆ

RELEASE DATE: May 19, 2020

Her head is in my hands, and my heart is at her feet. She has no idea how badly I want to be the man she still sees.
-Declan


Not my first read by the author or last, I’ve been a huge fan for many years. I was WAITING FOR DECLAN gah *sigh* absolutely everything about it kept me captivated through out the whole book. What a start…and then I finished it and I am now asking myself what in the heck just happened? Wha…why? *breathing*

Well this will be really hard to keep spoiler free but I shall. If you’ve read book one you know this was going to be a second-chance and if you didn’t, now you know. It was so intense to a point I wanted to throw my kindle, then it just took a turn and BAM, I was balling my eyes out into my chips I was eating. It feels like I just got off a roller coaster ride and wasn’t sure that I ever even got on one. It was intense, heart-breakingly beautiful, angsty, sorrow and romantic in it’s own way! You kind of come out breathing little faster, but by gosh did it mend my heart! You don’t want to miss Declan and Sydney’s story…one for the books!!

R E V I E W โž  Clutch Player by Nikki Ash




Clutch player: an athlete who is good under pressure and performs highly impossible plays in a quick and almost impossible amount of time.
Harper
I fell in love when I was sixteen. Landon was my entire world and I thought he would be my forever. But I was young and dumb, and with one error in judgement, I destroyed any chance of a future we couldโ€™ve had together, along with our hearts.
Twelve years later and Iโ€™m going through the motions of life, but not actually living. Which is why I let my friends, Bridget and Simon, set me up on a blind date. Turns out, itโ€™s not so blind after all. Because the man sitting in front of me is the same man whoโ€™s held onto my heart all these years.
Landon
They call me a Clutch Player because Iโ€™m good under pressure and quick on my feet. I was also quick to fall in love. The first time it was with baseball, the second was with Harper. And for a short time I had them both.
Until I lost Harper and all I had left was baseball.
For years, I focused on my career. I had accepted that baseball was my one true love.
Until I saw her again. I never imagined weโ€™d ever get a second chance, but now that sheโ€™s sitting right across from me, I know thereโ€™s no way in hell Iโ€™m going to let her go again.

RELEASE DATE: May 17, 2020

“It’s us, Harp. It feels like this because it’s you and me.”

Not my first read by the author but it has been a while, I really really loved this one too. The romance on this was off the roof, you will fall in love with the hero instantly…this is a heartbreaking story of mistakes being made, misunderstanding and priorities being thrown around instead of organized. Sweet, beautiful, sizzling and captivating. It went really well with the Cocky Books and your heart will melt with the epilogue!!

R E V I E W โž  That’s The Way I Love You by Carrie Aarons




Savannah
This town ain’t big enough for the two of us.
Which is why I left.
I was determined never to return to Hale, Texas. But when my new life in the Big Apple throws me a curve ball, I have to go back to tie up loose ends. One of those being him.
Jason Whitney was my first everything. Kiss, love, epic heartbreak. He shattered my world once upon a time, and apparently, heโ€™s not done yet.
With old demons lurking around every corner, hightailing it out of my hometown is at the top of my list. Complete my unfinished business, and I get to leave any memory of my country existence behind.
Only, with each day I spend in it, with each moment I spend with him, Iโ€™m turning back into the girl who laid in the tall grass and swam in the creek all those years ago.
And Iโ€™m not sure that who I was is ready to let me go again.
Jason
We drew a line down the middle, and neither of us has crossed it.
That is, until Savannah Reese blew back into our hometown.
The day my high school sweetheart left, she took my whole heart with her. We promised each other forever, made plans that only teenagers could believe in, and crashed and burned on the grandest of scales.
When Savannah last saw me, I was a disgraced high school athlete. All washed up, I took it out on the only person who loved me. Then her world really fell apart, and I was too selfish to care.
Now sheโ€™s back, ready to sell the only remaining thing tying us to each other. Iโ€™ve been breaking my back for the last ten years not to think about her, not to be reminded of the love we shared.
But now that sheโ€™s right here, itโ€™s impossible to forget how we used to be. Or let go of what we still are.

RELEASE DATE: May 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I have read enough of her books to understand and know her writing style so what I expected from this book is exactly what was delivered. She has a way of just sweetening up the story and characters in the best ways possible. This will make you feel warm all over!

I want to say right off the bat that I LOVED THE HERO Jason, oh my gosh I want to keep him forever please!! Countryman ALERT! I mean even from the get-go i just was drawn to him. Carrie really knows how to write bookboyfriends! Now the heroine I had a little bit of a harder time connecting to from the beginning, just from the type of person she came out to be as…it took me a little into the book to warm up to her more, after all she did turn into a sweet person after everything that she has been through had went through with the hero…i can say that through out the book she KEEP IMPROVING and improving herself the most! This was the sweetest-burn!

Itโ€™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 fatherโ€™s best friend and I wonโ€™t stop until I have him.
And at Daddyโ€™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.
Camiloโ€™s decisions affect my future, and I canโ€™t allow anythingโ€”not even a cocksure, ridiculously hot idiotโ€”to stand in my way.
Problem is, he fights back.
Every battle Iโ€™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 Hellโ€ฆand, boy, is it getting hot around here.
Heโ€™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 thingโ€™s for sure.
This girl wonโ€™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!

R E V I E W โž  Mother Clucker by Cat Johnson




They say opposites attract, but in this case, they might just combust . . .
HEATHER
Hermosa Beach seems to be the place for throwing together unlikely opposites.
My rooster Rowdy and his new crush, Pixy the goat.
Me and the obnoxiously cocky cowboy from Texas . . .
But unlike Rowdy and Pixy, thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™m going to fall for David Strickland.
Nope. Not gonna happen. I could never be with a man so completely opposed to everything I believe . . . no matter how hot he is.
DAVID
There couldnโ€™t be two people more different than the beautiful little tree hugger and rooster rescuer Heather and me.
We canโ€™t agree on anything, except that we disagree on everythingโ€”at some times more heatedly than other times. And believe me, things are starting to heat up between us, in more ways than one.
She’s the last thing I expected to find at an animal shelter in California. But now I found her, I have no intention of letting her go.
I just have to get her on board with that plan.

A man and a cock walk into a shelter…’

NEW TO ME AUTHOR & BOOKS! I was not sure what to expect going on since I’ve never read the author but I was glad I gave it a chance, it was a very fun read!

Heather and David really go at it from the get go, it was really enjoyable reading their banters and getting sucked in. And to this that a rooster is what made this all happen. I laughed and swooned in this one. If you’re looking for great chemistry, banter, fun and sweetness..this is for you!
