R E V I E W ➠ Gunner by Megan O’Brien


(Ride Series Second Generation Book 4)


As her older brother’s best friend, Gunner Pierce has been part of Emmie Jackson’s life for just about as long as she can remember. The often arrogant, always annoying Gunner keeps his distance – except when it comes to demanding she cover up or chasing away every man who expresses the slightest interest
When Emmie is kidnapped and confronted with a life or death situation, for the first time, Gunner seems ready to acknowledge what’s been between them for longer than either would ever admit
If he can keep her alive
As Gunner’s past becomes the present, what’s important in life comes into sharp focus. Now he’ll need to convince Emmie that a future with him is worth living.

RELEASE DATE: October 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author. Little note: I read this author before I started any of this bookstagramming and blogging and fell in love with her books from books one. I can safely say that I have re-read her books enough times for me to tell you exact details in them. So was I excited to get Gunner & Emmie’s story? HECK YES!

Little background, Emmie is the daughter (adopted) from the book CAL and well that’s all I am saying for that, and Gunner has been around in since she can remember herself. That said these two were a time bomb waiting to happen. It’s a full on BIKER romance, where the hero is part of the club, patched in, important, and Emmie just happens to be shown in as they say because she was so little when she was adopted that that’s all she knows and loves. Gunner is a rough around the edges, older, closed off and has given Emmie shit since she remembers. Emmie is a woman that might be youngER but very smart, put together, mature and so sweet. After some horrible events that leave her a little dazed Gunner realizes that all this time he should have just done what his mind and heart wanted…but after more danger…will he be able to prove himself?!

This is a I would highly recommend reading the first generation books if anything at least read CAL before this because it will make much more sense in a for you put two an two together. After all this is the second generation series the kids. I was so happy for these two and can’t wait for more as always!

R E V I E W ➠ Naughty Neighbor by Jeannine Colette and Lauren Runow




As a romance novelist, I’m facing my worst nightmare—writer’s block
No matter what I write, I hit delete, knowing it’s not worth publishing. The future of my career rests on the success of this new book
So, here I am, looking at Tumblr, desperate for inspiration, when I hear a thumping. Annoyed by the music blaring through the walls, I barge into the hall and bang on my neighbor’s door
My very hot, very naughty neighbor, Jake Morreau
Jake is romantic, charming, and the bane of my existence. I need to work, yet he refuses to let me
When he greets me in the hallway, ideas of a sinfully hot hero come to mind
When he takes me out on the town, the words flow as soon as I come home
The more time I spend with this entertaining and quick-witted man, the more I’m able to write
My neighbor is my muse, and before I know it, I slowly become the heroine of my own story, but I don’t know how to end it
As I write the epilogue, I’m afraid our romance won’t pan out as I’ve written
Jake Morreau is my hero.
hen again, in my life, heroes don’t exist.

RELEASE DATE: September 23, 2020

Not my first read by the ladies. This one I was excited for because any time a neibgor fun romance is involved I’m always game.

This is exactly what it was, fun but not in a overly enemy-to type of fun. Lacey is a writer, a romance writer to be exact and well she is in a pinch. Her book about the youngest brother hero is not speaking to her. She is definitely experiencing writers block. But what’s the best part about her one of them actually is her personality, it’s just plain beautiful just like her. In comes Jake now Jake is a bold shameless and fun hero. There is just something to love about him, his outgoing-ness is not annoying or overbearing but more in a fun laid back sexy way! Truthfully you’ll fall in love with both characters equally! p.s. the hero is a deep down hopeless romantic.

I enjoyed both characters, the side characters, events, story line and the fun in reading because ti all felt so real and I was on the edge for theri first everything!

R E V I E W ➠ Perfect Wreckage by Catherine Cowles


(Wrecked #2)


My past taught me to play it safe.
To stay far away from handsome men who promised it all.
My life was good without them. Stable, secure, predictable
But one kiss showed me that I’d been playing it safe for far too long.
One night, and all I wanted was more of his wildfire.
One challenge and my carefully constructed walls tumbled down
Amidst the rubble, I realized there was more to this man than I ever dreamed.
When everything fell apart, he showed me what it meant to stay.
How to truly live.
But when my demons return, that life might end up shorter than either of us expected…

RELEASE DATE: September 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous book in this series also! This author does the best SMALL TOWN romance!

Crosby is a man that lives care free, gives it it’s all. He is a attorney that is great at what he does. Kenna the heroine is a persist woman, in control, needs structure, the woman’s he has become is all due to her past and let’s just say that it’s heartbreaking…she mainly hides from the world and tries to stay out of things if you will. Their meet is unusual and an agreement is made which forces them to be in one another’s life. These two truly help one another, while the hero helps the heroine live a little bit, what the heroine brings out in the hero is just so plain beautiful. This book truly incorporates the hero and heroine in a beautiful, slightly twisted, sexy and heart wrenching romance. Not only does the author write beautiful words but her story lines always pull at the heart strings.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

R E V I E W ➠ Follow Me Darkly by Helen Hardt


(Follow Me #1)


I’ve always been a control freak. But he makes me crave submission
Working for a hotel heiress and social media influencer may not be my dream job, but at least it allows me time to do what I really love—take photographs. Pretty good for a wholesome farm girl from Kansas trying to make it in Boston. Life may not be easy working for a diva, but at least I know what to expect
Until blue-collar billionaire Braden Black strides into the office. He’s beyond handsome and sexy, but also domineering with a definite hard edge. I’m not sure why he’s interested in me, but within a few weeks, he’s showing me a world I never knew existed
He’s opened up a side of me I can only face in the dark, and it’s quickly becoming an obsession. How can I give up something this addictive—even if his secrets could ultimately destroy me?

RELEASE DATE: September 29, 2020

Not my first read by the author but sure has been a while since I have read her.

Braden and Kansas are polar opposite. I mean really opposite in everything but control. Where Braden is a alpha Kansas is a woman that thrives of control n her life. When these two come together it’s a heat explosion. They way they come together is that Kansas job as a assistant to a influencer, and Braden ends up commenting one something she has overlooked and it happened so fast from there. The moment Braden saw Kansas he just KNEW! What’s fascinating about this is the bedrooom, because both are in need of control and well let’s just say that it’s NOT what you expect.

That is all I am going to say because I rather not spoil it and this is something you want to experience. It was unexpected, sexy, emotional, real and let me just tell you about Braden…the hotness level is over the top. P.s. I had the privilege of receiving a beautiful package with the PAPERBACK ARC and I loved it!

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


(Power Play #5)


Everything we’ve fought for grinds to a halt with the attack—our future happy-ever-after now a lost hope as I’m abducted from the wreckage.
There’s a traitor in our midst who’s working alongside my long-term enemy, eager to destroy it all. He wants me to give up, to hand the life I’ve fought tooth and nail to achieve over to him. If I do, the pain will end, but others will suffer.
How much can I take before Trey saves me from the terrible fate they’ve promised if I don’t comply?
This is it, the moment where I have to make a choice.
Me or the millions who will suffer under the sociopath’s hand if I give him what he wants.
I might have been raised poor trailer trash, but that’s not who I am now.
My name’s Randi Sawyer, and I’m the president of the United States.
I will not bend. I will not break.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read plenty where I am familiar with her writing. That said this is Book #5 in a 5 book series, yes these books follow the same Hero and Heroine so I would not recommend skipping.

WOW! Talk about being on the edge the whole time. This is high on suspense and action but it does not lack the romance. This is the final conclusion to the 5 book series that follows the same hero and heroine. Obvious reasons I would not suggest reading out of order. I am debating if I want to give a lot out but I honestly don’t want to because this is much needed after the 4 books. Nothing is what it seems, on the edge scenes, mystery, action, little dark vibes, pretty much had it all. The HEA will have you swooning, crying and feelings ALL the feels. Highly recommend this whole series!

R E V I E W ➠ Wild Fire by Kristen Ashley


(Chaos #6.5)


The Chaos Motorcycle Club has won its war. But not every brother rode into the sunset with his woman on the back of his bike.
Chaos returns with the story of Dutch Black, a man whose father was the moral compass of the Club, until he was murdered. And the man who raised Dutch protected the Club at all costs. That combination is the man Dutch is intent on becoming.
It’s also the man that Dutch is going to go all out to give to his woman.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

RELEASE DATE: September 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be my 3rd read ever many moons ago. I fell in love with this series and Kristen’s writing so I love her work!

Okay, at the very very beginning I was little skeptical of the heroine and you’ll see why but I gotta say that changed so quick and I absolutely udderly love the hero in this I’ll explain why but I fell in love with Georgiana just in love. Now the reason why I love this Hero Dutch because he is the son of Graham Black who unfortunately got killed when he was five and you met him in the Chaos Series, so when I saw this i about screamed i always wondered what will happen. I also have to say that this is a first time a NOVELLA made it in my TOP 2020 MUST READ.  Also good news but Jagger his brother gets a story too so happy days!

Okay so Jag asks Dutch for a favor, to go pick up his on/off girl’s sister from the airport because they both were stuck doing other stuff. Reluctantly Duck does him a solid. But he was no prepared for a woman that had a LONG AF opinion on overhead baggage bins. Looking back now that was hilarious and overly dramatic. That said because I don’t want to ruin this shorter story and will say that to me I wouldn’t suggest reading it alone, the Chaos series is something else on its own. But if you must this gives you enough information to go by. THAT said, this really shows when 2 characters are so many to be, that your heart flourishes with them. I loved their banner, their honestly, their fucking amazing connection and mostly because our heroine here is a very confident curvy gorgeous woman that the hero admires throughout. It’s sweet, fun, romantic, suspenseful, mystery, action and SO ROMANTIC! The heart on this level 15!! *sigh happily* because I already want to re read and have more please!!!!!

R E V I E W ➠ The Devil’s Crown Part II by Monica James


(The Devil’s Crown #2)


With the enemy dead, my throne awaits my return. But the reason I’m still standing is being held captive by another foe.
I’ll move heaven and hell to find her, but when I do, everything changes forever. Ella is broken, broken because of me.
The only way to save her is to return to the ruthless leader I once was.
A war has been waged, and to win, I need to kill every last traitor and rebuild my kingdom to make her feel safe once more.
However, this war is like no other. And my enemy won’t stop until one of us is dead. But he doesn’t stand a chance. None of them do.
I’m a bad man. And I’m okay with that.
This is my world.
My rules.
I’m the goddamn king, and it’s time to adjust my crown.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

His kisses are nothing I’ve experienced before.
He takes my breath away, but I’d happily expire because I can never get enough of him,

-Ella

Not my first read by the author and I have read plenty to say that I love her works. Her Dark Romance way is on another level. That said I love you Monica but my god was the first 20% of this HARD for me to read. I won’t lie but I am kind of sick of Willow and Saint in all this and was hoping they’d fade away and not have to be involved especially her like she did. It truly to my bone made me sick, I’m sorry to have to say all this but it’s the truth and I absolutely hate anything related to the hero or heroine willingly and in front of one another be with other people, I know it’s a dark romance but I won’t lie when I was expecting less of that in this book so the first 20% was hard to swallow down and I had to take a break from reading for me to calm down. Maybe I invest too much in the characters but that type of stuff is a HUGE HUGE HUGE turn off for me. That was so not necessary in my mind. I’m going to need a hot minute to be able to continue but I pray that it doesn’t get bigger into THIS than it did.

Okay at 30% and I take it back what I saw was horrific but what happened to Ella in that bedroom, I think I actually threw up in my mouth, that was utterly disgusting. I don’t even know if I want to go on after this…I’m sorry after she realized her plan backfired I would have blown my cover or I don’t know tried harder but that THAT was fucking disgusting to read in all the levels, I felt bad for her but I was more disgusted!

Oh God Alek, you failed Ella so hard ;'( and poor Ella you plan backfired with life. *sad sigh*

This is not going to be a pretty review because I can”t emphasize enough how much I feel like this is just a 2 book continuance of All The Pretty Things because I was already annoyed with how much Saint and Willow were in part 1 and now this, this took it to another level. I get it I do but to be honest I was over Saint and Willow with their books and was okay to see them in Book 1 but did not expect them to be this much THIS MUCH in book 2 already, I roll my eyes every time he shows so much affection to Willow and that kiss, EW no I don’t care who you are but that was not necessary not was it in any way sad or accepted, to me that is. I am not a happy camper and only barely at 40% which sucks because I was really looking forward to the conclusion of ALEK & ELLA but what I got so far is I don’t know, I honestly don’t know. I jut can’t justify their love because I thought we were past that but keep coming back to it. I personally could not focus on Alek or Ella for the whole 40% of the book.

The worse part for me in all this is that right now at 56% I can’t form feelings for both of them, too much has happened and when i mean too much i mean A LOT and I just can’t how do I express it, I can;t feel the connection between Alek and Ella anymore…which to me makes it like i’m just reading words. That beginning really shook me and I am now here lost…as they seem to be. The boat situation was kind of slow going and I can’t get the romance feeling anymore which really sucks because I was SO LOOKING FORWARD to that here…all I feel right now if whiplash from the yacht situation.

Now getting loser to the end and I gotta say one thing I AM A EMOTIONAL READER I really invest myself into these characters that’s why my reviews are different, I tend to review as I read because of my emotions and this proves it. But I haven’t been disappointed in a while and it has noting to do with the author’s writing but the scenes, outcomes, characters…just plain was not ready for this and not in a good way. The scene on the yacht after the kids ordeal (you’ll see what I mean) really had me baffled due to the fact of what had just happened and on top of that what Ella told Alek and then the outcome to be what THEY DID, I honestly can’t say I felt the love, the compassion, the romance…nothing. It felt unreal to me just words and I hate it because the beginning really messed me up. The best part about this so far is that once they are THEM in a way I remind myself back to when they first met and their chase and their connection…some really trigger y moments in this and some personal ones, so that of course played a deal too. But I am going in to finish this and will be back with a last paragraph to conclude my review, sorry it’s so long I just WANT to feel it but can’t seem to get over it.

The last 25ish % were back to business, action, revenges, killing, blood shed, romance, darkness…it grabs you again or it grabbed me again, the plans the outcomes, it was all so familiar and I started to get the feeling again which of course was caused because of Alek and Ella of course. I did not see the outcome it was rather intense and definitely if you are not into bloodshed and the DARK it will be quiet a show. The fight for love may not have come easy or conventional to Alek and Ella but still breathtaking. To conclude it all now that I am so conflicted because the ending really got me really got me I even cried but the beginning messed me up so much, I am conflicted. I want you to know reading this review that this is with a heavy heart giving this a 4.5 stars but I am true to myself and to me this dark line crossed over a little too far for me at times. My opinions and feelings just expressing them, doesn’t mean it isn’t for you this is mere look into my feelings towards reading it from page one to end. P.s. there is no epilogue unless I missed it somehow, wish there was a little more of a conclusion unless we are also getting something additional.

R E V I E W ➠ The Game Changer by Samantha Lind


(Indianapolis Eagles #8)


Johnathan
The one word I didn’t think I’d have to accept so soon—retirement.
Never playing again was my new reality, along with all the other symptoms that came along with my career-ending injury.
Just as I’m learning to deal with my new normal, life throws me another challenge, but this one might just be the game-changer that alters my life for the better.
Jill
I’ve always been focused. School. Graduation. Opening my own business.
I didn’t see myself settling down anytime soon, I had an empire to build.
I definitely didn’t expect a newly retired hockey player would bulldoze his way into my life.
Maybe it’s time I focus on more than just my business.
The more time we spend together, the more I realize I can have more than one focus.
Sometimes, when one chapter closes, it makes room for another…

RELEASE DATE: September 17, 2020

Not my first read by the author but I am jumping in a little too late since this is book 8 but I have read one other book in this series. I read the blurb and the cover caught my attention and here we are.

I was pleasantly surprised at this. The hero and heroine were so honest and upfront with one another and it was refreshing. Jonathan was charming, broody, smart and just a man not sure what to do after his devastating news at the doctors. Jill is a woman after my own heart, strong, loyal, smart, funny, beautiful and just real. She makes it a point to be there for John but the way she does it is so just heartfelt and welcoming. So when they two start dating it may be new but their connection is mesmerizing to watch. You will get fully invested in these twoa nd the life they are trying to live on their own and build together, I am so glad I had a chance to review this…really fell in love with them two. Always love a meant to be hero and heroine because their banter, romance and pain just seems more real to me.

R E V I E W ➠ Edge of Tomorrow by Freya Barker


(Arrow’s Edge MC #3)


Solitude and motor oil meets soul food and wariness
I’m a grease-stained enigma.
A watcher, a protector, an ex-con, and a mechanic.
My name is Brick.
I’m old enough to know good things come to those who wait, and hungry enough to go after what I want.
I am a proud independent.
A nurturer, a cook, a casualty, and a grandparent.
My name is Lisa.
I’m cautious enough to keep my distance, and too wise to let a chance at love pass me by.
We seem unmatched—in race, in history, in lifestyle—but when tragedy leaves a baby in our care and a target on our backs, we discover the strength of family.
Unified.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I actually she’s been one of my secret hidden I LOVE her books author. I honestly have not read any books by her that I did not like, something about her writing style just appeals to me.

So the hero and heroine here are in their late 40’s meaning they are also grandparents. So the hero is a rough MC who is 50 and has had his share of life, the one daughter he does have he lost contact with many years ago. Two years is how long this man has waited to make his move only to be send into hyper speed of romance when the time does come. The heroine, she is super sweet, loving and smart. Taking care of her childs children, raising them since they were little enough…she doesn’t have time for anything else. She likes her job being the cook at the MC and that’s that. WRONG! She didn’t know what she was missing until that kiss. Since this is a MC you know you will get action, mystery, suspense, danger, dark..but what’s beautiful about this si the love between the hero and heroine, it’s not over the top no, but by gosh it’s so sweet makes you melt. Something about a big strong MC man to melt your heart when he calls you SUGAR!

Absolutely recommend her books to anyone that loves older characters, old school love, romance, passion, dirty sex but in the best way possible and just plain REAL!

R E V I E W ➠ Tempted by Love by Melissa Foster


(The Steeles at Silver Island #1)


Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go
Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does
As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

RELEASE DATE: September 9, 2020

First off MF is not new to me in any way. She’s been one of my very first many moons ago and I’ve read enough of her books to be filly invested. That said, I was scared to read this because I just had a feeling it was going to be very emotional. Once I dived it I couldn’t stop, beware right away that you probably want to have tissue near because I cried my little eyes out. What a heartbreaking story of two people who have over come so much differently yet same pain.

The heroine is a single mom not only kind of starting over but more importantly, starting over after not only her heart was broken but for her daughter. To be with a man that did that to her and her child, BROKE MY HEART. The hero, my gosh the hero I loved through and through, he wasn’t broken but u fixable, every time he ran from the heroines little daughter my heart was torn, when I found out his past and to why he is the way he is NO ONE should ever suffer through that. The pain he endured is unimaginable, yet he was still living day by day, maybe not so much living but alive and taking it day by day. When these two collided it’s been a year and more in the making. Watching little Hadley with her Dock (Hero’s name is Jack but the man he took care of called him Jock for the hecks of it and it kept in honor of him) but little Hadley the heroines daughter calls him Dock. It’s the sweetest thing in the world. The fun part about all this is that both hero and heroine come from being twins. This beautiful story broke my heart over and over. I hung to every page, anticipation, the kisses, the little girl with her big broken man…heartwarming and I deem this book on my TOP 2020 MUST READ list!
