R E V I E W ➠ Fateful Fighter by Kathy Coopmans




“I want a divorce.”
No woman wants to say those words. No woman who is still in love with her husband anyway.
Our marriage has been tested, repeatedly.
It’s been dragged through tabloids and rumors and fans that just won’t let us be.
Through it all, we’ve remained unbreakable.
We didn’t have the perfect marriage because perfection doesn’t exist.
But we had love. We had trust. We had chemistry that to this day sets everything inside me
on fire.
Then one life-threatening statement creates a chain of lies that leaves me no choice but to say those horrible words.
I never thought I’d say them.
I never thought my husband would ignore me when I did.
I never thought the man I love would sever the vows we took.
I never thought I’d pack my bags and move from our home in L.A. to our getaway cottage in Hermosa Beach.
Then again, I never thought he’d choose the fate of his life over his fate with me.

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

Not my first read by the author, but I have only read one book by her. So I was kind of familiar and from the blurb that this would be a doozey, and that it was. The hero and heroine are already married and I really can’t say too much because I don’t want you to miss the chance to experience it all as I did. The hero is AMAZING i mean i fell in love with him and the heroine, my heart, you will feel all of her. Definitely glad I gave this a chance and you will be in for a ride and a fight worth fighting for!

R E V I E W ➠ The Trade by Meghan Quinn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?
I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.
I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.
Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.
Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.
I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.
I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.
So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah . . . she’s married.
At least, that’s what I was told . . .

RELEASE DATE: March 12, 2020

Not my first time read by the author, and I have read book #1 and now this one in the series. I was a little nervous about the whole heroine being married part but glad I gave this a full shot. I honestly can’t say I disliked anything about this book!!

This is a story of two people and wrong timing. Then fast-forward to a second chance meeting and not only do sparks fly but the chemistry between them, the way they are around one another, you just can’t help but pull to them. They both battled their own daemons and had their own struggles, but when they were together, EXPLOSIVE! Now the only question is, if they can heal one another or just take it as it was and move on?!

Beautiful BEAUTIFUL story, definitely one of my favorite reads in this series! Cory was the swooniest hero and so so sweet, tough, alpha and smart! Natalie, bless her heart, I felt for her with every word. They really made the perfect pair!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Tease Me by J. Kenner



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Entertainment reporter Jamie Archer knew it would be hard when her husband, Stark Security Chief Ryan Hunter, was called away for a long-term project in London. The distance is difficult to endure, but Jamie trusts the deep and passionate love that has always burned between them. At least until a mysterious woman from Ryan’s past shows up at his doorstep, her very presence threatening to destroy everything that Jamie holds dear.
Ryan never expected to see Felicia Randall again, a woman with whom he shared a dark past and a dangerous secret. The first and only woman he ever truly failed.
Desperate and on the run, Felicia’s come to plead for his help. But while Ryan knows that helping her is the only way to heal old wounds, he also knows that the mission will not only endanger the life of the woman he holds most dear, but will brutally test the deep trust that binds Jamie and Ryan together.

RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2020

“Mostly, I love you, Jamie Archer.”
“Jasmie Archer Hunter,” I correct.
“And thank God for that,” he says.

He pulls me close and kisses me, sweet and tender, as if sealing the vow between s all over again.

-Jamie

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my firs reads along with being a top favorite author. That said, yes I have read all of the Stark books from one to lasts. This is Ryan and Jamie story, well another one hehe. And with that I will say this can not be read as a standalone since this couple is already established. It’s a fun and exciting story about a part of their life. Which by the way I love about all this, we get glimpses of their lives after the fact.

It jumps right in of course. When a past of Ryan’s re-appears it really does shake everything up. After a spontaneous trip that Jamie takes, turns into a un-forgetting adventure filled with sizzling moments, mystery, danger, past and trust. Really intense and after my Bestie Amy talked me down with me threatening to throw things at people at the gym if it was what I though it was, I really really enjoyed it.

R E V I E W ➠ Down And Dirty by Kendall Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Remember that time you accidentally woke up in Vegas married to your hot younger guy friend?
That’s basically my life right now.  
Mistakes were made, okay?
He’s too young for me. Twenty-three to my thirty. And he’s saving himself for the right girl.
Yup. Apparently I’ve married the last alpha-male virgin on the planet. And my stubborn, oddly traditional, new husband doesn’t want a divorce.
He wants me.
Complicated doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Down and Dirty is a sexy romp with a hero you’ll melt for and a relatable, sassy heroine you’ll love. If you’re a fan of steamy romances with laugh out loud moments, grab yourself a copy– you won’t regret it! 

RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites! I have also read all the others in the series & LOVED!!

This was a bit unconventional as in reverse roll type. The heroine is 7 rears the hero’s senior. The hero might be younger but definitely not not alpha haha that made sense to me in NY head. It’s a sweet story of two people that arose from a “mistake” and found that being together had its perks, being around one another wasn’t a hardship. Like i said i really doubt want to give out too much, but still the sports romance, older heroine, unconventional hero, all wrapped up in fate.

R E V I E W ➠ The Perfect Pitch by Samantha Lind



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Derek
The sound of the gavel crashing down,
Has my life flashing before my eyes.
Learning to play ball.
Falling in love,
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.
Everything I ever wanted… Until I struck out.
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,
Took it all away.
I’d do anything for a second chance,
Even throw the perfect pitch.
Jillian
A signature on a piece of paper…
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.
It broke my heart to file the papers.
Gutted me to sign them.
But this isn’t the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change.
Now he wants a second chance.
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?

RELEASE DATE: February 20, 2020

NEW to me author & books! I honestly received the Givemebooks emails about the cover reveal of this beauty and read the blurb and had to read it, it really caught my eye! Also the cover might have helped a little too!

So going into this I knew from the blurb that this will be starting off with the hero and heroine getting a divorce due to reasons. It started off good for me, until closer to the 50%, this is a VERY family based book and as much as I love those very much, to me it felt a little too much. The events that occur up until 50% are all just the family based…after-all this is a sports-romance so I was also expecting some interaction, which you do get around 60%. I guess it just went a little slow for me, there were times I thought something was going to happen but luckily they didn’t do that way. It’s about two people who know one another and are learning everything about each other all over again. It’s really BEAUTIFUL, the dedication, the sweetness of it all.

R E V I E W ➠ You’re The One by Layla Hagen



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Hot. Flirty. Romantic.
It all started as pretend…
My best friend, and one of the most powerful men in New York, needed my help.
Our first kiss was unexpected—but it still made my skin sizzle, my knees go weak.
The next one was in front of his tight-knit family. We had to be convincing. But it was so wicked hot, it almost convinced me too.
On our first night together, he told me that I had to keep us both in check, because he didn’t know how to keep the lines from blurring…
He touched me like I was precious, and held me close… barely stopping his fingers from pushing down the straps of my dress…
On our second night, our banter turned to flirting. Hunter—my best friend was now Hunter—the man. Intense. Alluring. Sexy as hell.
How was I supposed to not fall in love?

RELEASE DATE: February 4, 2020

“Know me so well, do you? What do you think I want?” “I think you want me to push and push until you have no choice but to give in.”

Not my first read by the author and this is stand-alone. I’ve read enough books by this author that I knew I’d enjoy it. This is a friends-to-lovers and an interesting one at that.

Hunter is a wealthy and successful man, a man that started from the bottom, a man that well hasn’t been paying attention to his work-visa. He has lived in the states since he was a baby but push forward many years and well, should have paid more attention because now he is in a pickle.
Josie is a successful lawyer who has always worked hard in her life. She is a woman that knows what she wants and speaks her mind, she is also the best friend of Hunter. These two, I have to say even at the beginning after the “arrangement” was accepted, lines were starting to blur, but neither one of them know of each other’s feelings. So naturally they both ignore it and move on as this was just another time together. It’s really sweet to watch them titter-totter around one another. Sadly one doesn’t believe in actual marriage while the other hopes to have it all, husband, house and 2.5 kids.

The only thing that bothered me was the climax. I wont lie but through out the whole build up, i had no indication something was coming until when it did, it just didn’t seem right for the action. i don’t want to give it away but it kind of brought me back a step, and i wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, that’s all I can say truthfully. Threw me off just a little.

She’s risking it all, gambling with her heart.
Deciding to give their instant marriage a chance, Zoey moves from her big city life to a small town Texas ranch. She has to know if their connection is based on more than just a wild one-night stand before announcing to her family that she got hitched.

Not my first read by author, and the Fox ladies always bring the bang even in a standalone! This one was really sweet, characters are based on a early 20s age but VERY SWEET, fun, sexy and romantic!! Also, COWBOY that’s all I need to say!!

Riley and Zoey’s story is a whirlpool of emotions. It started off with, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?! Yeah, they might be bringing back a little more than souvenirs. It all happens so fast but when you know you know. And these two have a magical pull to one another, it’s beautiful, young and sweet. Every touch every look, just SWOON SWOON SWOON!! It was great to get the previous books characters all now older, so Diesel who is his best friend is next. Diesel & Rowan who is the sister of Riley!

All hope was lost until Zoey Hennessy walked back into my world, shaking it up beyond repair when she uttered two simple words.
He’s alive.
She speaks of her brother, my Saint, the man who lost everything to set me free.

It’s time I saved him.
The plan is dangerous, and there are no guarantees I will survive. But if this nightmare has taught me one thing, it’s that I don’t cower in fear. I am a woman hell-bent on getting back the man she loves, and nothing, no one will stand in my way.
However, what I uncover can only be described as hell on earth. The darkness has finally won, and Saint is lost to me forever.
Or so I thought.
Aleksei Popov is anything but a hero, yet in this story—he’s mine. Everything I believed in is about to be turned upside down, and with freedom within my grasp, I wonder how far I will go, and who I will sacrifice in order to set myself free.

“You once said my demons dance with yours. And you’re right. They always have. Out love wasn’t perfect, but it was ours. And it was worth every single imperfect moment. You are worthy of life, Saint…

-Forever My Saint

Not my first read by author and I have been following (reading) all the books in this trilogy!! To say I have been waiting for this since probably middle of the first book is pretty accurate haha! Glad I am finally here, with that said I will RECOMMEND you read Book 1 and 2 before!

I want to touch base on book 1 and 2, I have full reviews of them of course but will say that I kind of just WENT FOR IT when i first signed up for book 1 thinking we will see…hell not even in the middle of it I KNEW I HAD TO read all the rest, so it’s been a game of I know this will be amazing but I also know there are 3 books to it. IT was worth it all the way! The first one kind of eases you into it in a way then book 2 pretty much threw you around like being stuck in a hurricane. FANTASTIC!

Book 3- well, I don’t really know where to begin honestly without giving too much away since it is a trilogy. It starts off where Book 2 left I will say that, at the end of Book 2 there was a huge BOOM and a hint then you come back to the heroine trying to go off a hunch to reveal the truth. A truth that is very crucial to her. The rest of the books you think will be all flowers and ends up being roses with thorns. It’s beautiful but does tear your heart out and bring out all the emotions for an ending that will have you feeling staggering and happy, and sad, and just want to re-read the entire series now that all three are out! Which by the way IS GOING TO HAPPEN to me at least! A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ You Can Have Manhattan by P. Dangelico



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

You are cordially invited to the worst wedding of the century.
Sydney Evans is no stranger to hard work. It’s the one constant in her life. And with no family or friends to speak of it’s been easy to pour everything she has into her career as general counsel for Blackstone Holdings.
She wants for nothing. Until her boss offers her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All she has to do in return is marry his good-for-nothing son.
Scott Blackstone used be a party whore. Pardon, party animal. He hasn’t been that guy in a long time though. Not since he moved to Wyoming, bought a failing cattle ranch, and turned it into a profitable business.
All is good. Until a phone call from his father threatens the quiet, simple life he’s built. Marry or lose everything. And to a woman who can’t stand him, no less. Well, Scott is not going down without a fight. He’s never going back to Manhattan. Not if he can help it.

RELEASE DATE: September 10, 2019

I had a feeling I’d be dreaming about cowboys tonight.

-Sydney

How hard could this be? What were three years in the grand scheme of things? Nothing.

-Sydney

Not my first ride with the author, to be honest I have read every single of her books, every time it comes out I AM ALL ABOUT IT!! So far, she is becoming one of my favorite new to me authors!

Sydney had a normal day. work work work oh and some more work. keeping busy as she has a very important role in the company. when Franklin her boss also the owner calls her in his office, shit goes from 0 to 60 real fast. she is dealt some terrible news and that wasn’t even the worst part of it either.

Fine, she was a grown woman who may not have had the best teenage-hood and was not accepting that work is going to be her real marriage, so what’s to marry Scott the party-whore and get what she always would have dreamed off along with making Franklin happy. Well she was singing a different tune when she was standing at the alter in Vegas and not only was Scott late but showed up plastered drunk. To think she had hopes even slightly that he was a changed man.

FROM THE BOOK:
“A worthy white lie. What’s few more for the greater good?”

-Scott

CHARACTERS
Sydney: mid 20s, tall, beautiful and restricted. She aches for love but has her GAME FACE on for so long in her life that no one has even tried to break through. She has always worked hard all her life, her upbringings were worse than imagined but she made it on her own. And no one will stop her, not even the over-barring-asshole-sexy-cowboy SCOTT!
Scott: Has always had an easy life, Late 30’s, Ladies man, gorgeous I MEAN GORGEOUS, arrogant, confident, changed man and a hard worker! Even if he was given a reputation he caused in his early years, Scott is a changed man, doing something he loves and cherishes. But no one really knows that, he is still portrayed as the man-whore party asshole. He sure met his match!! And that forsaken CABIN haha as Sydney said: ‘Cabin fever is a real thing.’

This book gave me ALL. THE. FEELS. Stop in your tracks keep reading faster but also.slower because you don’t want it to end. Everything was perfect about it, the characters, side characters, story line, transition and words. There was enough of everything what you wanted, few times I even shed a tear…but i felt every single word. This is one of those ‘the feeling I chase when I read’ THIS HAS IT!! You’ll fall in love with every twist and turn, when you think you know the outcome,.you won’t. Get ready because the author did the enemy-to-lovers romance, justice!! RE-READ WORTH FOR SURE!!

On my TOP 2019 MUST READ list!
