R E V I E W ➠ Wait For Me by Tia Louise



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Dear Taron,
I should have told you this a long time ago…

Dear Taron,
Is there a time-limit on forgiveness?
If there is, I haven’t reached it…

Dear Taron,
I still love you…

A letter never sent.
Heck, I never even finished it.

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.
He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming…
Strong, tanned arms and blue-green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin…
Did I mention his tight end?
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…
I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his blue-green eyes.
Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen —pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker.
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.
Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope.
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…

(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

RELEASE DATE: December 16, 2019

Heaven is finding the thing you can’t live without and being able to hold it. Hell is knowing you’ll have to let it go.

-Taron

Not my first read by the author and since I have discovered Tia I have read every single book she has put out since. This BLURB alone will get you, just wait until the story,
ALL THE EMOTIONS! It’s a beautiful story of YOUNG LOVE and over-comings.

Taron & Noel meet at the worst and yet best time ever! After spending a short amount of time together, they fall head over heels in love. When Taron leaves along with Noel’s brother, it’s a hard one…the first leaves are always the hardest. The in between is beautiful and emotional, it’s so much love…reminded me kind of like a 50’s when man meets woman and leaves for the war and she waits for him…it’s just young love is all I will say. But as hot as it burns, it crashes even harder. You really will FEEL this one!

Then you get your heart ripped out and placed back! It’s a ride I wasn’t prepared for, this second chance romance is on another level. It’s a little of known and a lot of new. Having read a lot of books by this author, I am familiar with her style so that’s where the KNOWN comes in and the new, is just a few things that really took me by surprise! Emotional, beautiful and romantic. You get a little of everything & all in Tia’s amazing writing style.

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Rebellion by Evelyn Montgomery



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Brittany
Solo. Private. Detached.
I’m used to going through life alone. I’m used to running my own show and work best under pressure. My past is best kept hidden. Buried inside so I can keep up my disguise. My mask. My veil hiding my truth from the rest of the world. A bubbly exterior that covers up my secrets perfectly.
But he breaks down my walls. He forces himself into my heart and drives me crazy with need. Want. Desire. Our passion is fueled by destruction. Our chemistry interferes with my every move. But there is one secret I don’t tell. One truth I keep hidden.
I never let myself get distracted. Until now, when I show up for my next job and find out the man I thought I’d escaped is suddenly my new partner. And hell if I can avoid the pull he has on me. But there is one problem, he’s just as broken as me. And together, we might just meet our end.

Dylan
Damaged. Ruined. Self-destructive.
At least those are the words my ex-wife used to describe me. Right when I hit her with a restraining order and took full custody of our only child. I won’t let anyone close. I promised myself to never fall in love again. My son is my only priority. That and my next big job at the bureau.
But then she shows up out of the blue, twelve days before Christmas, and is suddenly my new live-in roommate for the next two weeks. I tell myself to stay away. I tell myself to not get involved. But the damn pull she has on me makes me take her anyway, if only for one night when we both agree it can be nothing more.
Parting ways, I am left with an emptiness I wasn’t expecting. A hole I’m afraid will never be filled. Chumming it up to just one amazing night with a woman I let closer than anyone ever before, I try to lose the thought of her in my next job. Attempting best I can to block her memory out, I quickly realize that won’t be easy when I show up for work and meet my new partner. My match. My equal. My whole world, and damn it if I can let her go twice.

RELEASE DATE: December 13, 2019

Not my first read by author & I was so excited for this one because the Blurb caught me right away!!! So to say that I enjoyed this is an understatement, great job!!

Brittany and Dylan are MEANT TO BE characters. This book contains a lot of action suspense and danger! The romance part of it here is insane, I fell in love with both the main characters off the bat. Brittany was so reletable and lovable and Dylan, pure pure SWOON!! I really have to say that this author is getting better and better for me each time. The twists and turns here are…you will not know what coming. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!

Rafael Silva
The Spanish God that I just spilled my coffee all over in the elevator, strides into the room, knowing every woman in this office is picturing him as her lunch, I know I am. Until he winks at me with that arrogant smirk and I steel myself. The memory of that smirk all summer my senior year, spending every waking moment with my father’s exchange student intern hits me. Mother f–
Competing against the asshole that ten years ago, taught me things that would make a stripper blush? Done. Pretending that him high tailing it out of here, never to be heard from again didn’t break me? Doable. Avoiding the desire to lick him from head to toe? Working on it. Doing it without falling into his bed? Not so much.
Rochelle Saddler

When she dropped to her knees in the elevator, furiously rubbing the coffee off my pants, I almost lost my self control. Working alongside her again, competing against her is what I’ve waited for all these years. I may have left the first time princesa, but this time I’m staying…for good.

RELEASE DATE: December 12, 2019

Not my first read by author, she is my #bookwifey and I have read all her books! Been excited for this one actually and NO I don’t know much ahead of time and also I don’t beta read for her, I like to be surprised with the awesome ARCs which I always am thankful for to Nikki.

Okay, I know I’ve said it before but I LOVE THIS ONE! It’s a perfect enemy-to-lovers romance!! Rochelle and Rafael are both so strong with a lot of history between them. A lot of sizzling history that is. Rochelle is very VERY headstrong and outspoken, and won’t repeat her mistake again and be hurt. While Rafa carries so much on his shoulder and is equally stubborn. This story is not for the faint of the heart because *sigh*

I will say that at the beginning it was a little hard to connect with Rochelle but here is the secret, to me Rafa tames her and somehow him being him, makes Rochelle even more better. She is still very tough, strong and outspoken but Rafa just brings out so much more in her. That said this is definitely one of my favorites of Nichole’s books!

Well, definitely NOT my first read by the author and YES I was lucky to have already read Book #1 and couldn’t wait for this!! The little wait was SO WORTH IT!

Just like with Book #1 I COULD NOT PUT THIS DOWN! It picks up right where it was left off, and YES starts with a bang too. Meghan March seriously knows how to suck you right into the story. The chemistry the scenes the actions, suspense, love and the sexy everything! The chemistry between Scarlett and Gabriel is something you can only dream to have. In this book it only gets stronger as the bond with Scarlett and her girlfriends! GOALS! You won’t ever find another connection the way these two are, I can’t express the feeling you get when you get sucked in and live through Meghan’s writing!

I do have to warn you again, aside from the amazing continued story between these FANTASTIC characters, the cliffhanger on this one: YOU WILL NOT BE READY, OR EVER FOR THAT MATTER AND HOLY MOLLY WHY?!

R E V I E W ➠ Devious Intentions by Kelli Callahan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

“Nothing will ever come between us, Leigh. I won’t let it…” -Damien Sinn

I met a man that was truly amazing.
I never believed in love at first sight until I saw Damien Sinn looking at me.
To say he swept me off my feet would be an understatement.
It was pure, beautiful, and a dream come true.
Little did we know, our worlds were always destined to collide.

Just not in the way we expected.

They say some things are too good to be true.
I had to learn that the hard way.
Was it possible for our love to survive,
When everyone around us had devious intentions?

A scandal could be the least of our problems… 

RELEASE DATE: December 6, 2019

If this is a dream, I’m not sure I want to wake up.

NEW to me author & books! The blurb and of course cover is what caught my eye on this! I also wanted to try something new and I also have been hearing about this author as well.

Damien is a man that is not only carrying a huge burden but older and jaded. Everything after and thus far has been just to be alive and live. When he met Leigh, a fire that was long out sparked again. Their first kiss was beautiful, accidental but ever so beautiful and sweet. Damien wants to let go but had a hard time distinguishing the past to future as well as thinking he is good enough for Leigh. And Leigh is the type of woman that may be sweet but she has one of the biggest hearts. Watching these two go through a lot separately and then together, it’s really how chemistry between two people should be. Natural and takes your breath away type.

For this being my first read by the author I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it very much. Little different writing style but that’s natural with it being my very first, and I have to say that I will be reading more by this author.

R E V I E W ➠ Baiting Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

ARC from NetGallery via Montlake Publishing

Chrissie doesn’t have time for guys, hot or otherwise; most days, she barely has time to sleep. With a thriving bakery that demands her attention and plenty of proof that relationships aren’t worth the trouble, she’s content to go it alone. Too bad she’s unwittingly baited Mr. Tall, Dark, and Way Too Gorgeous—and he’s just waiting for a chance to bite.
Gaston is used to getting what he wants, but he also knows nothing good ever comes easy. From the moment he meets Chrissie, he realizes that this woman who makes him laugh, smells like cupcakes, and looks like a tasty snack is going to be his greatest challenge. And if he’s lucky, she’ll be his biggest reward.
But someone else wants to catch Gaston at all costs—even if it means endangering the lives of the people he loves. Somehow Gaston must thwart danger and convince Chrissie that he’s the perfect catch.

RELEASE DATE: January 14, 2019

“This is LeFou.” he tells me, coming closer to where I’m standing.
“You’re kidding? You named your dog Lefou–LeFou as in Gaston’s sidekick from Beauty and the Beast?”
“I didn’t name him. My mom did before she delivered him to me as a birthday present. At that point, I couldn’t change his name, since he wouldn’t respond to anything else.”

Not my first read by this author, she is one of my top 3 favorite and first read authors also! AND I have read every single book by Aurora!! Book 1 was FAN-TAS-TIC and this one did not disappoint, the first one sets the tone and this one fits right in. Absolutely loved everything about it, the lightness or the read, the ROMANCE, the characters and even a little but of danger, everything went well together in a beautiful package.

Chrissie is a sweet character, as the heroine she really lives up to it. When she is out with her girls and ends up meeting a tall dark and OH SO SEXY man who she has no idea is…things start off a little FUNNY. She basically tells him TO LEAVE. But Gaston YES YES YES like the character from Beauty & The Beast is not a quitter or a man to shy away from things he wants. And he wants Chrissie who is a curvy, gorgeous and a spitfire. On the road to winning he rover there is a lot of beautiful moments, sexy moments, lots of laughter and heart and not to mention LeFou THE DOG!

R E V I E W ➠ Six Weeks Of Loving You by Karli Perrin



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

The news reporters called it a disaster.
The doctors called it a miracle.
I could still walk. I could still talk. I could still remember every little detail about the train crash.
Until I couldn’t.
Six weeks later, I lost my memory.
I woke up believing that it was the morning of the accident.
Six weeks after that, it happened again.
I have retrograde amnesia. I’ve damaged a part of my brain which allows me to recall the recent past. In other words, I have an extremely limited short-term memory – six weeks to be exact.
The train derailed eighteen months ago.
I’ve relived that morning twelve times.
When I meet Spencer Hale, I put up a huge fight.
I won’t let him in. I can’t let him in. But with each day that passes, my walls begin to come down.
I get one step closer to loving him.
And one step closer to losing him.
Welcome to the train wreck that is my life.

RELEASE DATE: November 26, 2019

This is a NEW to me author & books. I was asked by the author to read & review. And I have to say with NEW author’s I get a little skeptical, I don’t tend to like going in blind but gave this a fair chance for sure. It is something different than what I read and so it did take me a little to get into the story and characters.

The heroine’s name is Cora and after a horrific accident left her with amnesia, her brain basically resets every 6 weeks. So she lives her life on, on her own because she could never put someone through this, especially a loved one. Everyday Cora goes to the local coffee
shop and writes. Her best friend Roxy also works there until one day there is someone new. Spencer is handsome and cute. But Cora’s idea of a relationship now is NON-EXISTENT. How would be begin to explain her condition yet alone bring that burden onto them. But Spencer really is the ultimate bookboyfriend because he is kind, sweet and does not give up. That’s where you get the whole IT’S BEAUTIFUL part because despite her condition, Spencer see’s her for HER! Sadly I don’t have, well I am 50/50 on the heroine because as much as I can understand her reasoning, she drove me nuts in a lot of places and made me somewhat dislike her so it was a little dread reading her parts. She had good moments but for me, I’d have chosen the Hero as a favorite in this.She is ultimately why I gave this book a 4.5 star rather then and 5

That said, this is a beautiful story with a message and meaning,
love CAN conquer all!

“Every scar tells a story, It’s a stepping-stone in one’s journey. Maybe one day you could show me yours.”

Not my first read by the author, and I have to say I have so far only read the darkER version of her words and so I was a little scared going into this one, aside form the author saying this was very different and personal, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I definitely, was not what I was expecting or ready for. IN A GOOD WAY!

This book grabbed me by the throat and did not let up, it was something different and real and just…captivating!  Jude and Victoria were so BEAUTIFUL together, helping each other without even knowing it. That THAT is what I call a soul mate, even with everything that they HAVE gone through are WENT through together…just so beautiful, like a butterfly blossoming! Make sure to have tissue handy because this will break you…HARD…before it puts you back together. Simply exquisite!

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



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

There’s no turning back. I can’t go home a failure–again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying.  
Randi Sawyer 
It started with a shady business proposal I should’ve turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I’m not, and bonus, I’m at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC’s seedy political scene the more I realize I can’t trust anyone if I’m going to make it out alive. Until him. Secret Service agent Trey Benson is bitter, jaded, and oh so hot with his mischievous smirk and cocky attitude. He hates me, just like everyone else, but he might just be who I need to survive this mess I’ve landed myself in. 
Trey Benson 
Forced onto her protection detail, I’m certain she’s just another Political Barbie in this city. I should know–I’ve dated most of them. Except she’s not. Funny, foulmouthed and crazy as hell, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, Randi Sawyer just might be the one person who can make a difference in DC–and in me. Too bad the boss says she’s off-limits, that it’s too risky for her career and mine. Good thing I’ve never been great at sticking to orders. 

Power Play is the first book in the five-book Power Play series. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

RELEASE DATE: January 20, 2020

Stuck with a dangerously hot man nearly around the clock is tonrture in itself.

-Randi

Not my first read by author and I am very honored to have received this ARC very early!! I can’t wait to see more in this series because after this one I AM NOW HOOKED!! Also little about the author from how I perceive her: her books are different, in a REAL sense, so it’s not your typical romance and it’s always real to a point you forget your reading. So, this is a political-real-life-romance, enemy-to-lovers, angsty, suspenseful, mysterious, action packed, funny and sweet at times also. Slow burn for sure, but with some teasing! When hero and heroine meet it’s under not so good circumstances. What’s worse is that Randi was shocked by the man’s size and beautiful eyes, until the harsh words that come out of his mouth. How do you change someone perception of yourself when it’s a lie to yourself too.

Trey Benson is part of Randi’s security detail, and the man is a grumpy one. Sexy, but grumpy! Considering he got himself and his team in the situation they are in in the first place. I think it’s funny that he already made up him mind about Randi, but he has NO IDEA!! Trey and Randi are more intertwined than they know, small world if you will. Beware and that’s saying it light of K Y L E! Oh my gosh, did I want to stab him then suffocate him with his own pillow a few times! *grrrr* This is a VERY REAL LIKE political life, and boy did the author do some good research which ever way!!

Two people whoa re polar opposite, lies, wrongs, deception and real life. It’s when Trey realizes a little who Randi really is, every day it’s something new and he can’t believe his eyes because, not a minute ago she was this polished, clean beautiful and shark woman in a world of powerful men. This is a DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER through and through. I really really flipping fell in love with Randi, her past, her upbringings, her push through life…it’s admirable and not believable at times but in here you will understand that, really not everyone is as they seem. But throughout all this, she stays true to HERSELF even if the rest of the world sees her as this perfect Political Barbie!

While these two try and figure out WHO THEY ARE to themselves, while living this life of polar opposite yet so very much alike…it’s a on the edge of the seat, glued to your book type of story. As much as the political world is arrogant, there is a way to navigate, the question is will Randi trust her new found friend Trey to help her with that, and will Randi put himself back out there for someone he essentially had pegged already?!

Prepare for that ending & thereafter…seriously, a fight to the end?

A MUST READ!
