R E V I E W ➠ Piece by Piece by Kaylee Ryan




Layla
Owen Riggins is too good to be true. The best things in life usually are. He’s good looking, generous and interested in me. Too bad someone like him and someone like me aren’t’ meant to be together
He’s used to the best things in life, and I’ve grown up with the worst. Building a better life means working hard and staying on track, not falling for some sexy suit with a brooding stare who is just passing through
Life has taught me not to trust, and even though I want him more than anything, I don’t need his charity or his love
Owen
When a friend sends me to Florida to scout out a hotel, it’s the gorgeous waitress with a shy smile and worn-out shoes I can’t take my eyes off of
Layla Massey is quiet, beautiful, and in need of a little help- even if she won’t admit it. A generous tip was meant to buy her some suitable shoes, not to buy her love. I want to earn that all on my own
I’m used to women throwing themselves at me, the name, the money… but she wants neither. It makes me want her all the more
Little by little, she opens up and piece by piece, she’s taking my heart.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE this author and have read all her books. She is a INSTA-READ for me and this series, I have loved the Novella and Book 1 and this one was equally amazing!

I want to explain that this is definitely a INSTA-LOVE. We have the hero who is the 2nd oldest of the brothers but also the quiet and thinking one. He is not a man of many words but what he says is very important and honest. The heroine is a woman that was dealt a shitty hand in life from birth due to her mother. She ran away when she turned 18 and never looked back. She is just getting by but that’s happy for her and she is proud of herself and what she does. When they meet they have no idea about one another, the hero may come off as pitying her but the way it goes is that he is just a man that when you know you know. What happens next is a fast ride but a beautiful sweet one, and a tragic event leading to a HEA. Beware the hero here is UBER-SWOONY is the only way I can describe it. I can’t wait for the next brother, Grant!

Riggins Brothers Series

R E V I E W ➠ Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow




When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing
I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I’ve got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful
Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my broody exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself
For exactly one night
If only she weren’t so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying–at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel
But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince
So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go
No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.

RELEASE DATE: August 24, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read all her books. I was so excited to hear she is giving us something new, so to say I was excited to get an ARC is an understatement. Heads up, this does INVOLVE Cloverleigh Farms in ways 🙂

I am not going to lie but when this started I thought it was going to go one way but the heroine surprised me through out the beginning. I thought it was going to be another, damsel rich girl running away to start her own life and bad dirty mechanic who has to work for everything and work hard that is. But even from the beginning she turn a turn, a good turn and I was intrigued. I will say off the bat that Melanie NEVER disappoints when it comes to sexy scenes. WOW who turned up the fire?!

This was original with a twist, I loved all the characters, even the heroine got to me fast enough, the story line, the events…it’s was beautiful, cute, haunting at times and romantic! The hero was a lot more romantic than he gives himself credit for. I can’t wait for book 2, that one should be interesting!

R E V I E W ➠ Mr. Knightsbridge by Louise Bay




Dexter Daniels prefers gems over women. Emeralds over girlfriends. Diamonds over marriage.
He might be the most successful jeweler of his generation, a loyal friend and some say the most handsome man in London, but his past means he doesn’t deal in love.
When Hollie Lumen enters the ballroom where exquisite royal jewels are on display, she brings Dexter’s world to a screeching halt. Despite her hand-me-down dress and borrowed shoes, Hollie is even more stunning than the jewelry. Feisty, funny and ferociously independent, she’s all Dexter can see.
Hollie Lumen can’t catch a break. She thought an internship in London was her chance to escape her responsibilities back in Oregon and for her dreams to come true. When she’s fired only a few weeks after touching down, she’s ready to give up and go home. Hollie never asks for help. She knows the only person she can rely on is herself.
So what’s she going to do about the tall, dark, handsome stranger who keeps rescuing her?
She’s going to rescue him right back.

RELEASE DATE: July 7, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I just want to say that these covers are always so amazing starting with this series. Now I have not read book #1 in this series but that was okay because I got enough from this book to get me by! Glad I gave this a chance because this was a SWEET READ!

The favorite part of this for me was the flow of the story and book, the banter between friends, the different lifestyles but deep down same souls, the characters. Dexter comes from a gold spoon if you will and lives a different kind of life, but works really hard and that’s one of the characteristics I loved about him. Hollie couldn’t be more opposite but this is where when I said same souls, they really both have a lot in common just at different levels. I really loved them together, their chemistry, they just fit so well. And I gotta say, I haven’t read a lot of books by the author but this one with the hot steamy scenes, phew hot as fire guys, romantic enough but with a alpha/sexy kick! All in all I am glad I gave this a chance and most likely will be reading Book #1 even backwards yes but I definitely need to!

R E V I E W ➠ The Rich Boy by Kylie Scott



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

I’m the type of girl who’s given up on fairy tales. So when Beck – the hot new busboy at work – starts flirting with me, I know better than to get my hopes up. Happily ever afters aren’t for the average. I learned that the hard way.
But how can I be expected to resist a man who can quote Austen, loves making me laugh, and seems to be everything hot and good in this world?
Only there’s so much more to him than that.
Billionaire playboy? Check.
Troubled soul? Check.
The owner of my heart, the man I’ve moved halfway across the country to be with, who’s laying the world at my feet in order to convince me to never leave? Check. Check. Check.
But nobody does complicated like the one percent.
This is not your everyday rags-to-riches, knight-in-shining armor whisking the poor girl off her feet kind of story. No, this is much messier.

RELEASE DATE: March 09, 2020

“FOR A CONTROL FREAK, I HAVE SURPRISINGLY LITTLE CONTROL AROUND YOU. IT’S DISCONCERTING.”

-Beck

This is not my first read by the author but a first official review. I have read Kylie’s book before I started all my bookstagramming! And I forgot how much I LOVE HER books!! ALTERNATIVE CINDERELLA STORY! I really did not want it to end, and sadly I have to report but no epilogue and I almost cried!

The heroine ALICE is a woman living life day by day, working, accepting where she stands and doing so to get by. She is a waitress in California. When a new staff comes on, she is intrigued but keeps her distance. The hero BECK is seductive, handsome, big, strong, sarcastic, real and just real. He is passing through but when his eye caught Alice, he knew he had to be near her if anything. They both hit it off right away and things kind of go fast…but as Alice thinks this is too good to be true, it really is because the ever so sexy and mysterious new boy that doesn’t want to “take things to the next level sexually” because he wants to get to know her…really is too good to be true. This is very steamy as well, it is a slow-burn but once it’s there, it’s blazing THEIR CHEMISTRY IS INSANE from the banter, to jokes, to Beck quoting JANE AUSTIN and being the right kind of sarcastic well they both are, to alike-ness GAH I loved both the characters!

I don’t want to say any more because this really will shock you because not only is it fast love, but the mystery, the truth….gah, you will never be able to figure out what’s to come next with this. I really was taken back and forgot how much I love Kylie’s books because her writing is something else. It’s something different AND REAL! Absolutely couldn’t get enough of this book!

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 ➠ Bad Liar by Lauren Rowe



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Swallowing lies has never felt so good.
Reed freaking Rivers. I wouldn’t trust a word out of the arrogant music mogul’s mouth if his gold-plated tongue were notarized. The Man with the Midas Touch would say anything to get me into his bed, and I know it. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want him to succeed.
Indeed, the moment I laid eyes on Reed while he was speaking at an on-campus event I’d crashed, my body physically ached to feel his golden fingers—and tongue—all over me. Unfortunately, though, I can’t give into my powerful craving to jump Reed’s cocky bones. Not until I’ve figured out my best strategy with him . . .
The truth is Reed has something I desperately want. Something my heart desires even more than my body craves one night of delicious fun with the yummiest man alive. Reed assumes he’s running this game of seduction. He thinks he’s a thirty-four-year-old big cat on the prowl, and I’m nothing but a blushing twenty-one-year old field mouse with stars in my eyes.
Yeah . . . no.
As Reed is about to find out, he’s not the only cat on the hunt in this game of cat-and-mouse . .

BAD LIAR is the first book of the standalone REED RIVERS TRILOGY. The full trilogy is BAD LIAR, BEAUTIFUL LIAR, and BELOVED LIAR, to be read in order.

RELEASE DATE: February 24, 2020

Not my first read by author, the reason I signed up for this truly because the blurb promised so much (also i love dark romances) but the cover as well, I mean you can’t go wrong with Joseph. Sadly from the first few pages it did not live up to the blurb for me already. I don;t know how to put it but the atmosphere for me was not pleasant. I don’t know how to explain the feeling but if you’re an avid reader you might understand when reading something that just rubs you the wrong way. It’s a story of a older man that had something, then lost it all so young only to work his way back up all alone and his hard work paid off. The heroine is a younger woman just graduating college, in the same field as the hero. They first laid eyes on one another when the hero held a speech at the heroine’s college.

I don’t know but I was expecting a little bit more romance and not just an arrogant and asshole hero and a sex crazed immature young heroine. I really do get the idea and the whole thing but for me, not my cup of tea and I was really excited for this one. I know other people may enjoy this type of read, and I want to emphasize on MY OPINION not everyone’s that said, I wish i the best but I will not be seeking an ARC for book #2 or #3. The one amazing thing for me is the author’s writing, it was smooth transitions, beautiful words that flowed together, and I can always appreciate that.

Things that made me not enjoy the book:
-In the first pages the hero is young (meaning the previous) which is fine but he was rather engaged in other activities that obviously did not involve the heroine — so okay, I moved on past that.
-Then we get another woman who has meaning in hero’s life along with being an ex lover or current whichever way you want to look at it, and that one turned me off from the hero right away. And the fact that I got THAT before he even met the heroine.
-Let’s talk about the heroine, from the beginning I did not like her, she seems immature and sex crazed to me, I don’t like woman like that and it turned me off. Just not my cup of tea!

Not my first read by the author. I am used to romantic-suspense and so when I got this, a sweet more swooney romance, I was thrown by it a little. So prepare, this is something different from the author, in a good way. Get ready to have your panties swooned right off by Hunter!

This is a story of two lost souls that live two very different lives, from the beginning. When Hunter and Rochelle meet, it’s by accident or fate. Rochelle gives Hunter a run for his money, he has to work hard at even getting her to go on a date with him, when he succeeds it’s a slow-sizzling-burn…he just can’t get enough of her. But having come from different lives, how long can they both maneuver the obstacles now society throws at them for being so different and not meant to be in their eyes? Watch these two try to navigate it, all while holding on to themselves.

This was a very sweet, fast love, opposite attract, beautiful and painful romance. Hunter is very swoony and you’ll fall in love with him right away, Rochelle our heroine is a little here and there for me because she started off very very shy and she springs up form time to time which throws me off each time. But them together, is simply beautiful. Sports romance with a twist!

Only it’s a small town, and I was bound to run into the irresistible Porter Jones again.

“Tell me about it. All I wanted last night was some pizza.”
“And all you got was
a pizza this ass?”
Her face scrunches up. “I can’t believe you just said that. I can’t believe I slept with a person who would even think that.”
“You liked sleeping with me and you doughn’t regret it even though I just said something cheesy.

It’s been over twenty-hour hours since I last saw him but only a minute since I last thought about him.

-Dory

Not my first read by this author, she is one of my absolute favorites! I also have read Book 1 & 2 in this series, LOVED both of them!! Been excited about this one!! You know when you read Teagan that you will get to be like part of the story, she transforms you in it…and laughter…lot’s of laughter…oh and cursing hahaha! In this case you also get an amazing little girl who will win your heart over in just a page. Well, to be fair she won my heart over in Book #2!

Porter, the hero is funny, handsome, arrogant, broody, so sexy and a great man. You get a little glimpse of him in the previous book and that is why I was so excited for his story. He is a man that never had anyone stick…therefore when he uprooted his whole life to be closer to his friends he isn’t expecting to find a woman who gave him a night of his life and also an employee…..again!

Doris aka Dory (yes like the fish) is a young woman fighting in the big world. She has been having some bad luck until one night at her favorite pizza place she runs into a stranger, well not run more like she stared really hard at him until he called her out on it. One night. No feelings. No kissing under any circumstance. Just sex. And well a job, but not because of the sex I promise *smirk*

This is a story of two people who both don’t trust themselves but have a pull to one another that they consciously don’t ignore but still in the back of the mind, they know that this can only lead to heartbreak. I don’t want to give out to much, honestly it was such a fun read. I loved all of them and especially them three together. The daughter is probably one of my favorites in this series along with Porter, something about his grumpy-handsome-ness…and all! Just in love with all this, if you want lighthearted read with a lot of laughter, banter and romance (and also the sexy time, good gosh there is no disappointment here on that *sizzling*)

“Keep looking at me like that and I might take you up on that bathroom fuck,”

-Elijah

Not my first read by this author, and yes I have read all the previous books in this series! I am so happy to have the chance to read this early and get a glimpse of Elijah & Gwen’s story!! (BETA READING THIS) This is a story of a man who is lost after one of the worst things that can happen to a man. Starts of ‘real’ then hits you right away. Takes you far away into a beautiful place with two people who have the most amazing time in their life, just when everything seems to be falling apart, they found each other to keep whole.

I can’t say too much because ti will give out the whole book but I will say that there is a lot that’s going to happen and these same two people who once found each other, have to try and either find each other again or LIVE WITH letting one another go for the sake of a loved one. This has a lot of parts to it, it starts off with one way then turns into something sexy and beautiful…then it jumps a little ahead and then it’s a ride you won’t want to get off of! This book contains a lot of HEART!!
