R E V I E W ➠ Take Me Away by Kelly Elliott


(Southern Bride #6)


When I’m not a test pilot flying for the U.S. Air Force, I can be found risking my life in other ways.
Skydiving. No problem.
Bungee jumping off a bridge. Like a pro.
Paragliding in Switzerland. Time of my life.
Zorbing in New Zealand. Fun as hell.
You see…all these life-risking adventures are not just a hobby for me, not just a way to pass the time. I need the adrenaline rush like I need my next breath. I’m addicted to it. It’s the only thing that allows me to bury my painful past—even if only for as long as it takes for me to come down from the high. All that matters is that I’m able to forget. And every heart-stopping moment of it was working…at least, until she appeared back in my life.
Both my worst nightmare and my wildest dream all wrapped up in one beautiful woman…a woman I was still very much in love with.
And that’s not the worst part…
Linnzi Cunningham has no idea who I am. She has no idea how intertwined our terrible pasts are—and for that, she is lucky.
She doesn’t remember the night when everything important in her life, everything that she lived for, was taken from her by the man who promised he would always protect her.
That man was me.
To love her is to forget she ever existed in my world.

RELEASE DATE: December 22, 2020

My mystery man.
The only man who had made me feel something for the first time in years.
The man I was finally able to put a face to in my nightly dreams.

-Linnzi

Not my first read of the author, and I have read all the books previously in the series. I absolutely LOVE this series! This one will hit you in ALL. THE. FEELS.

So the hero and heroine in this one has a huge history together, and I mean huge. That said, I don’t want to give out too much but just when you think you had it figure out, YOU DON’T. Believe me when I say that. Nolan the hero is the sweetest best man alive, I mean dream man…and Linnzi the heroine…was mature, sweet, beautiful and so lost. I knew they would break my heart in this but I didn’t know how much. From the build up to the peek, to everything in between and after…all the feelings. Their tragedy might be shared but their heart had complete different takes and ideas. It truly is a book to just dive into to and get lost with.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

(Ryker Ranch Book 3)


They call me the wild one.
The Ryker brother who’d rather have more notches on his bedpost than rodeo championships.
I’m good with horses, even better with women. I’ve been warned that sowing my oats might have consequences, but I’m always careful. And there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun.
But the truth is, I want more than fun. I want it all. With the right girl.
So when the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen shows up at my ranch, it should all fall into place. Except she’s got a big surprise for me. She’s pregnant, and the kid is mine, but she wants nothing to do with me.

RELEASE DATE: December 2, 2020

NEW to me author and books. I originally saw this as a sign-up and recommended it to my Book-Friend Britney to read because she loves Cowboy Romances, and after she read it and told me a little about it I wanted to give it a try.

This is a backwards game, Tristen and Hazel are starting it off a little backwards. When Hazel decides to let loose for one night, after learning news that new ex-bf of 5 years not only moved on after a hot minute but also got engaged then is getting married even faster…well things don’t go as planned. Oh the romance and sexy times portion was spot on and perfect, but Tristen the sexy cowboy that calls her Darlin’ left behind a little more than they both bargained for. After searching to find him again, because well they both didn’t bother more than first name bases on the one night they spend together, she finds out more about the sexy cowboy a.k.a her baby-daddy. And what she finds is beautiful, romantic, sweet and just plain Tristan. But she’s been burned before, she spend 5 years with a man who was always looking for the next best and new things…these two take a ride of adventure and love.

I will say that the peek of the story line, I guess there wasn’t a big build up to it as well as the aftermath, but I enjoyed the story very much and the ending has me wanting to continue these brother’s stories!

R E V I E W ➠ My Brother’s Roommate by Kendall Ryan


(Frisky Business #2)


There are a few things you should know about my brother’s roommate
Wolfie Cox is . . . complicated. Terminally sexy, and more importantly, he has an impressive stick lodged so far up his ass, he’s about as emotionally available as a chinchilla. Actually, that might be an insult to the chinchilla community
So, naturally, I want to ride him like a bicycle
He thinks I hate him. Mostly because I’ve led him to believe this. It’s easier than admitting the alternative
And while Wolfie is about as soft and cuddly as a fork, I’m the opposite. A good girl. Reliable. Conscientious. Oh, and completely panicked about an upcoming work conference
Wolfie’s usually allergic to altruism, so when my brother volun-tells him to help me out by escorting me to said conference where everyone else will have a plus-one . . . I say thanks, but no thanks. Surprisingly, Wolfie is unflinching about this. And that’s the story about how I got stuck in a hotel with my brother’s hot (grouchy) roommate
Thank you for coming to my TED talk
In all seriousness, this isn’t a game to me, and hormones aside, I need to impress my boss this week so the promotion I’ve worked hard for doesn’t get handed to his spineless nephew. But with Wolfie and me sharing a hotel bed, things get confusing quickly.

RELEASE DATE: December 1, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read a lot to love her style. I have been looking forward to this one, something about the blurb really caught my attention. I have not read Book 1 in this series yet.

This was a little something different I’ve read. Yes it’s the best friends and roommates little sister ordeal sure, but with a Hero Twist. I won’t say what of course but definitely different and not expected. The hero is grumpy, reserved and broody…but when you find out about his past, it’ll break your heart and make you think twice as a female reader. Definitely interesting. The heroine I’m 50/50 on to be honest, I wasn’t feeling the full connection between them, but mostly my connection to her. The story line is straight road type, little predictable but still enough to keep you engaged.

R E V I E W ➠ Make Me Yours by Melanie Harlow


(Bellamy Creek #2)


He’s my brother’s best friend
The hot single dad next door
And one accidental sext later, my massive crush on him is no longer a secret
It’s my own damn fault. I’m thirty years old, for heaven’s sake. I’m a kindergarten teacher and a (reasonably) responsible adult. I should know better than to get tipsy and draft a fake text listing all the dirty things I wish Officer Cole Mitchell would do to me
I wasn’t supposed to hit send
He wasn’t supposed to see it
And he definitely wasn’t supposed to text back telling me to go on . .
Because after that, things escalate quickly
Cole is everything I’ve ever wanted. He’s sexy and protective. A devoted father to his little girl. A dedicated cop the whole town adores. The kind of guy you can trust to keep his hands to himself, even when you’re desperately hoping he won’t
I’m not the girl he thought he’d end up with, but after all this time, I might finally get the chance to say the words I’ve always dreamed of . . . make me yours.

RELEASE DATE: November 23, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is a favorite and I have loved all her books thus far! This series UGH i couldn’t wait for more, meaning I have read book 1!

I want to say that I really had high hopes ad expectations for this book because of the first one. And I am always honest in my review’s good or the not so good. That said, sadly the only reason this god a 4.5 is because I love and respect Melanie. Hear me out, up until 60% I was cruising on the love boat, excitement, the chase, the game, the pain, ALL. THE. FEELINGS. then somehow it just all went WEIRD for me. That’s the only way I can describe it, few scenes felt repeated, the FEEL of the whole relationship just felt off, the heroine turned into a ‘love sick puppy’ kind of love but a little too much. Just felt off, maybe it’s just me and I wasn’t going with the flow or off, but I was in a good mood reading loved it, then it just got WEIRD. Just didn’t feel right on the conclusion part and the resolution as well for me. I appreciate all the words because it was well written, little predictable story line but enjoyable. It got me off of the good and that’s why you are reading this going, oh this is mostly the not so good but let me tell you bout the good.

The starting relationship of hero and heroine was sweet, they have known one another for most of their life. Cole and Cheyenne really are true friends, and well Cheyenne has had a huge crush on Cole from teenage years but Cole lived on, married, had a baby and then lost the love of his life. Which really scarred him, his daughter thought she is the sweetest and cutest you’ll love her! Their over all feel is best friends little sister can’t go there and secret crush still but I can’t make him want me. It was really emotional, i felt everything for Cheyenne and well let me warn you about the sexy scenes in a good way, haha fantastic! Cole by the way is the Single-Dad Police Officer, I will say that I kind of missed maybe seeing about his work, it doesn’t go into detail at all, just that he is a police officer that’s about it. Over all I enjoyed the book.

R E V I E W ➠ Desperate Times by Emily Goodwin


(Silver Ridge Series Book 2)


I fell in love with Chloe Fisher when we were only kids. I knew then, just like I know now, there will never be another woman in the world for me but her. A silly childhood pack to marry each other if we were still single and thirty kept us together…until I messed up, hurting the only woman I’ve every truly cared about. I swore if I ever got a second chance, I would make things right, rove to Chloe I’ve changed, that I’m not the same guy who broke her heart years ago
History has a way of repeating itself, and now that Chloe is finally giving me what I’ve always wanted, I’m terrified that maybe we were never meant to be, that maybe Chloe will always be the one that got away. That maybe, just maybe, she’s entirely too good for me
I’ve never been one to give up, and I’ll keep fight for her—for us, even though the universe is doing its very best to keep us apart. It’s true what they say: desperate times call for desperate measures. And I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make her mine.

RELEASE DATE: November 17, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have also read Book 1 in this duo. I have to admit I had to kind of skim over and re read by Book 1 review because of the gap so I didn’t fully remember the ending and all. That said I am 50/50 so so on this conclusion, well so this is a Series but Book 1 and this one are the same hero and heroine. It was kind of a BOOM ending of book 1 so I had expectations.

Sam receives some rather hard news and well the truth in the ending of book 1 so now he is confused and unsure how to continue on with Chloe and everything. He is torn back and forth, there is some twists thrown in and because he’s so unsure and of the events I don’t want to name to give too much out, the store had times where it went in circles, the drama went up and down but still in circles of the same. It got little slow for me. What saved it all for me is the love between Sam and Chloe, when it was just them two, Sam was so handsome and sweet and sexy and Chloe being her awkward self..it really just worked for them two. New love but a long time coming!

R E V I E W ➠ Charming Co-Worker by Jeannine Colette and Lauren Runow




All I want for Christmas is Branson Ford
I’ve been starry-eyed for my handsome boss since the day I started working for him at Empire Media. Problem is, he doesn’t see me as anything more than his sweet assistant
I need help becoming a vixen. I need someone to teach me how to be sensual, how to be desired, and how to get the man I’ve pined over for the last two years. So, I enlist the help of my co-worker
My very sexy, very charming co-worker, Hunter Johnstone
Hunter loves the thrill of the chase. He’s spontaneous, honest, and just the man I need for a lesson in passion. When he suggests we start a fake relationship, I think he’s crazy, but who am I to question his jealousy-inducing ways
His little trick works—maybe too well. The line between friends and lovers is blurred, but maybe that’s because it was never really there. And just as I’m about to start seeing clearly, my Christmas wish comes true.

RELEASE DATE: November 23, 2020

Not my first read by the ladies! I have been excited for this one, a good rom-com is always something on my radar!

What I loved about this, yes it may have been part a rom-com but the SWEET in this was very high and I swooned equally. All Katie want’s is for her boos to see her more than the SWEET little assistant, so she sets out a plan or rather get’s some help/ In comes Hunter who is handsome, sweet funny, loyal and determined. I enjoyed every page, side characters and the story line of this. One sitting read!

R E V I E W ➠ Waiting On The Rain by Claudia Connor


(McKinney/Walker Brothers #3)


Being blind doesn’t hold Ava Bennet back in the least. With her work, her shopping, and public transportation within walking distance, she’s totally at home in the big city. But she’s not in the city now. Temporarily back in her small home town to help her father has her struggling in a big way.
 Luke Walker is done running from his troubled past. Finally home after years in the military, he’s ready to make amends with his family and set down some roots. But adapting to civilian life is much harder than he ever expected.
She has no intention of sticking around. He has no plans to run again. All they have is one month together. Will it be enough for Luke to prove he’s everything Ava needs—in light, in darkness, and most importantly, even in the rain?   

RELEASE DATE: December 31, 2020

She reached for the can, brushing her hand along his thigh as she did and jerked her hand back.
“Sorry. If you’re going to sit right beside me you run the risk of being touched.
Being touched? If she only knew how many times the thought of touching her again had crossed his mind.

Not my first read by the author. I actually found her before all my bookstagramming and blogging and fell in love from book 1 and I have read all her books since and always look forward to more. Her writing style is something I enjoy very much.

I don’t know where to start, I guess a little from the beginning. The hero LUKE is the 2nd oldest Walker Brother, also one of the twins. The Walker family is from Hannah who married a McKinley brother. So I have been waiting on Luke for soooo long and finally, it was EVERYTHING!

Luke is a former Army Ranger, in his early 40s and a man just existing but not sure if anyone really understands him. His broken is broken if that makes sense, he is just quiet sexy. He first sees Ava the heroine at his brother’s wedding, she was by the cookie table and looking a little…inebriated…or so he thought. When he approached her, it’s not what h would have guessed in thousands of years. Ava so beautiful, petite, long almost white blonde hair and the most palest blue eyes he has ever looked into. It was the sweetest meet ever, and I won’t tell you because you must experience it. Ava has a past that will have you shatter with her, I cried and then was angry…I may or may not have even suggested to Claudia to kill off a character “accidentally” there may be a lot of heartbreak in this but Luke’s SWOON moments mend that…I absolutely loved everything about this, my expectation for Luke’s story over exceeded, *sigh* I couldn’t get enough of it all. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

R E V I E W ➠ Illegal Formation by Shanna Swenson


(The Gods of the Gridiron #4)


Hell hath no fury… especially if you’re Hades—the god of death. 
TE, Quillan Layton, is settling into his role as the newest player for the Gladiators. He’s embracing his brooding and dark character’s namesake. Hell, it’s easy to be such when your life is as skewed as his is. After all, he’s a single dad and the widower of a former drug addict who’s not looking for love—not in the slightest.
Though when he sees bad girl, Veda Ryan, at Paxton’s Halloween party, he might just be eating crow. This tattooed, pierced, and cynical Irish “snake-charmer” has more up her sleeve than ink, and one scorching hot night with her isn’t quite enough to satisfy the ravenous god within just dying to be unleashed.
Veda, the sharp-tongued twin of Becca’s, is an unhappy cheerleader, reluctant stripper, and passionate model-wannabe with a determination as strong as her colorfully art-clad skin. She sees the tall, dark, and delicious half-Spanish sex god, Quillan, and knows immediately that she has to sink her teeth into him, come Hell or high water, and does so that fateful Samhain night in an ILLEGAL FORMATION of epic proportions.
But Quil and Veda are in for a rude awakening. The old saying goes that if one plays with fire, one is bound to get burned and burned these two lovers will be as they fight their sizzling attraction for one another tooth and nail.
Will a devastating secret be enough to bring them colliding together or will it doom Hades and his Persephone to a fiery pit of never-ending regret? 

**This book is a single dad/bad girl/forbidden romance with a dark side; it deals with abortion, violent sexual acts, death, suicide, and addiction. READER DISCRETION ADVISED. HEA GUARANTEED**

RELEASE DATE: November 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the previous series books! This one was a 50/50 to as really strong heroine usually are, they aren’t my absolute favorite type. So personal preference. I think it was just a mix of the hero being very very controlling and takes a while to understand and the heroine being very strong yet vulnerable and I don’t know it didn’t mix well for me. It is the darkest I’ve read from this author and touches base on some touchy subjects, personally it’s a very touchy to me, yet it was beautiful to read and watch.

even though I have mixed feeling on this one, the author’s words are what captivates you, the form and the story line. It grips you and keeps you hold. Am so glad to have had the chance to continue reading in this beautiful series.
