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 SetUp by Meghan Quinn




I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act.
An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure as a twenty-year-old man I’ll ever recover. Brace yourself, because what I’m about to tell you might have you gasping in secondhand horror.
Ready? Here it goes . . .
I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom.
Yes . . . A MEDDLING MOM–who’s been trying to set me up all summer.
Now, I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but when she makes it her relentless MISSION, the heinous act should be classified as a misdemeanor at least.
Of course, my mom, the evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings, made her final stab at finding a girl for me days before I went back to college.
And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last.
A titan in black skinny jeans.
A boss of nonchalance.
And a girl who would not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous around campus, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort.
Thanks, Mom. 

RELEASE DATE: September 10, 2020

Not my first read by the author by far, I have read enough to know her writing style and love it. That said I have also been following these series of stand-alone’s and have read them all. This one was fun as all of them are but also broke my heart all at the same.

When the hero’s mother meddles and tries to set him up with a woman that not only is gorgeous but also WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM. It was the best and funniest thing ever, I loved LOVED Indie oh man did I love her but equally Lincoln as well, they really just kind of fit well together and their banter, sweet moments and heartbreak was something I didn’t think I would need but glad I received from this fun, sexy rom-com that turned my heart upside down.

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!

R E V I E W ➠ Faithless by Megan Green




When life gives you lemons…
You better shield your eyes, because you’re about to get sprayed right in the face.
The day my wife sat me down and told me she wanted a divorce, I was certain things couldn’t possibly get any worse. Forty-eight hours later, I’d find out just how wrong I was.
Now, instead of being a divorced father of two, I’m a widower, left trying to pick up the pieces of my wife’s affair.
The last person I should turn to for help?
My wife’s estranged sister, Kate.
Kate is everything Felicity wasn’t. And no matter how wrong I know it is, I can’t help the attraction that sparks between us.
Felicity destroyed my faith in love. Will her sister be able to restore it?

Faithless is an emotional new standalone romance set in Corinne Michael’s bestselling Salvation Society world.

RELEASE DATE: September 6, 2020

NEW to me author and books! I was drawn to this by the blurb and of course the cover is pretty awesome too!

This one was SUPER emotional and the angst, pain but so sweet at times and romantic. The hero Shane is actually married in this, his wife not only tells him that she wants a divorce but also leaving him for another man. The worse part of all this isn’t so much the pain from that but the pain from losing her all together, from a car accident. I was a mess with all this. All the questions he had will forever be left unanswered. The heroine is the estranged sister of his dead wife, Kate. I can’t explain how I felt about her, it was a 50/50 something I couldn’t fully connect with her. Needless to say these two were very REAL and the events, something that you will keep reading faster to find out what happens.

Courage, faith, loss, grieve, second-chance and passion in all the senses. I would warn you that this is SLOW BURN and a painful one at that. Single Dad / Widower trying to figure out how to love again, how to give his heart.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I am a huge fan. Have read almost all of her books and of course have read Book 1 and 2 in this series which really blew me away but this one broke me SO BAD in all the good ways!

So I was kind of prepared a bit for these two because of the previous books, so to say I was prepared HA i was NOT ready at all. This book broke me from the beginning, the anguish, the pain…but then you get hints of the beautiful and sweet and good days and you get that little hope inside you to get you through. The feeling in this, Amy really gets deep with words and when you are reading, you are feeling every single letter! As heartbreaking as it is, it’s also beautiful, full of life, mysterious, angsty…and romantic. Their bond is a little dfferent than the rest and when you fidn out why, you’ll swoon and melt like I did!

Dual POV, action, angst, passion, secrets, romance, previous books characters, truly an experience when reading.

That is until my brother, Rogan, presents me with the opportunity of a lifetime. The Summer of Love, a secret pen pal program in Port Snow is looking for applicants and I’m the perfect fit
I couldn’t sign up fast enough
I found myself quickly falling in love with a pair of red lips at the bottom of a letter. Just like in the movies . .
Life could not have been better, that was until I started hanging out with Ruth Barber. Starting a new business right next to my shop, I found myself gravitating toward her. Her smile, her humor . . . her tea sandwiches
My attraction for Ruth came in full force, leaving me dazed, confused, and *ahem* excited
As new feelings for two women come to a screeching halt, I have to figure out who to choose. But when I discover my pen pal is Ruth, it might be too late
All I want in life is to experience that swoony feeling . . . but I think I might have just missed my chance.

RELEASE DATE: August 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and not my last. I have fallen in love with this series from book one, and I have been waiting for the youngest brother’s story and it did not disappoint! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this series & this book!!

WOW. I was not expecting that, I mean Brig is the youngest brother of them and the most ‘I WANT TO FIND LOVE’ silly, sweet, big heart and still very handsome and sexy in his own way. Ruth is, she surprised me each time, my heart fell for her at every corner fallen and by gosh, can you live through a character? Because i sure as heck did with Ruth. She’s had a secret for a long time, the secret being only to Brig who is a clueless idiot. Talk about a town effort. Yes, you will get lots of laughs here but also sweet moments that will keep you wanting to read more and need more. I was very captivated by this one, I even cried my eyes out. I really wish there is it will be more because I don’t want it to end please. And I am saying this because of the way this book ended, I’m kind of hanging there….

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


Part One


I was feared.
Respected.
Worshiped.
But all of that changed when the impossible happened—I fell in love. Only those feelings weren’t reciprocated, because who could love a monster like me?
My empire crumbled. People died. I went from being a victorious leader to lurking in the shadows, planning revenge on my half-brother who now reigns in my place.
An orphanage is where I find sanctuary, but when she walks into my world and evokes a yearning I thought long dead, my demons are awakened and want what they can’t have—her. Sooner or later, I knew I’d need to feed the darkness inside me.
Mayhem, power, and control course through my veins. I will use them to regain my crown, my throne, and then claim her, despite what solemn vows she might’ve made.
I will break them…and her.

**All The Pretty Things Trilogy Spin-Off**

RELEASE DATE: July 21, 2020

We’re like desperate, starved animals pawing at one another, wanting to rip the other apart.

Aleksei

Not my first read by the author, and I am a huge fan of her dark romance and well all her books but the dark, she does it well!! So happy and honored to be on her ARC team and received this first hand! I dived right in with no expectation BECAUSE I have a love.hate deal with Alek (please ALL THE PRETTY THINGS Trilogy) I can’t say it fully because it will ruin it. But because of that, I’ve bene on the fence about Alek…

Alek is ruthless and I mean that in all the forms in EVERY form, but even from the trilogy I learned something about him…his heart (or a piece of it that’s left) is HUGE! I don’t care what you say but his weakness may be common in someone eye’s but beautiful to me. Definitely have a weak spot for him, aside from all his bad-ness! This was sinfully delicious! And I say that with respect to “HIM” but talk about being all kind of ways of fucked up after this…

This is all I am going to say about it because I just finished and I like writing my reviews just as I finish so it’s fresh in my mind and my emotions. I was a MESS. An utter mess by the end, what’s worse is HOW DOES ONE WAIT TILL SEPTEMBER for more? As tragic as it was, dangerous, sexy, sinful, deadly…in a way Alek’s story truly is a forbidden act. I am leaving it at that, it’s a cliffy so yeah!

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
Emily
I fell in love with him when I was fourteen. Under the stars, he told me he loved me, and under the stars we promised to love each other always. But under the stars, he broke my heart by walking away.
He left me without a second glance. I was just an afterthought.
Now he’s back, but this time, I’m not falling for his Southern charm.
Maybe.
It’s time I get my happily ever after, even if part of me wishes he was still mine.
Ethan
I found out on my twenty-first birthday that everything I thought I knew was a lie, and the man I had grown up thinking was my father wasn’t.
The pain I felt blinded me, making it impossible to hear what anyone said.
I left them all behind, including her, my best friend and the woman I was going to marry.
Five years later, I’m back, only to find the woman I still love has another man’s ring on her finger.
She’s going to marry my best friend unless I stop her. And this time, I only have until sunrise to change her mind.

RELEASE DATE: July 7, 2020

Not my first read by the author and not my last. I have read almost every singe book by her and of course have read the other books in this series!

Okay, okay, okay…what just happened? I started reading this around 8pm and its almost 1am i am now finished and I’m…I have just cried on and off for hours. Have your tissue handy because this ones a heart-breaker. So by now we all know this is the love story of Ethan who is Savannah’s son, i feel like by this point you probably don’t want to start the series with this book so we all know who he is. I want sure what to expect to be honest, then i thought i knew what to expect then i was broken into pieces, felt every single word and cried right along. Sometimes trying to find yourself or who you are comes at a cost, and Ethan paid BIG! Emily, beautiful Emily… forever will love her, i felt every single break of hers, every year gone by alone, gah just so tragic but beautiful. 


If you want angst mixed with heartbreak, throw in some curves on the road AND then have it all try and find the same path… this is for you. I am so glad Ethan and Emily got their story, probably a critical and important one at that.  not the end but I’m throwing this into my “when I’m feeling sad’ pile so i can extra FEEL it when i re-read!

Sometimes trying to catch a star will light your whole world on fire….
Emily’s entire existence is wrapped up in touring with her up-and-coming country rock band Carolina George and trying to build them into a music legend. Her passionate night with a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy was the result of too much time on the road, too much tequila and combustible physical chemistry. It was never supposed to follow her into the light of day, much less threaten everything she and the band have worked so hard to create.
Royce’s night with the lead singer of Carolina George was the worst mistake of his life. He needs the band to sign on to his record label or his family will pay the price. But will his irresistible attraction to Emily destroy his carefully laid plans?
Royce’s past is littered with mistakes and heartache – will his love for Emily be just one more tragedy?

Not my first read by the author and ot my last, AMY happens to be one of my top favorite author’s and I have read all her books. I have also read all the books in the series and want, no, need more!

What a heart-wrenching twist of fate. wow. i had to stop myself repeatedly from reading too fast because I didn’t want to miss a beat. talk about having your heart beat out of your chest feeling.
This was truly and oh-so-heartbreakingly beautiful. The hero and heroines lives so intertwined yet so far away. Neither wanted to happen what they couldn’t deny, but when the truth came out…IT. WILL. BREAK. YOU. That’s all i am going to say. Be prepared. You can assure that the hero and heroine are the type you fall in love and get so caught up with you forget that you are reading and not living through them. It’s a slow burn, but a sweet one, two souls TWO BROKEN SOULS that are meant to be but having a hard time finding their joint path…when they do, it will both break them.

R E V I E W ➠ Fight For Me by Corinne Michaels




I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.
At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever.
When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.
After my father’s death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. 
When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me. 
Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

RELEASE DATE: May 19, 2020

Her head is in my hands, and my heart is at her feet. She has no idea how badly I want to be the man she still sees.
-Declan


Not my first read by the author or last, I’ve been a huge fan for many years. I was WAITING FOR DECLAN gah *sigh* absolutely everything about it kept me captivated through out the whole book. What a start…and then I finished it and I am now asking myself what in the heck just happened? Wha…why? *breathing*

Well this will be really hard to keep spoiler free but I shall. If you’ve read book one you know this was going to be a second-chance and if you didn’t, now you know. It was so intense to a point I wanted to throw my kindle, then it just took a turn and BAM, I was balling my eyes out into my chips I was eating. It feels like I just got off a roller coaster ride and wasn’t sure that I ever even got on one. It was intense, heart-breakingly beautiful, angsty, sorrow and romantic in it’s own way! You kind of come out breathing little faster, but by gosh did it mend my heart! You don’t want to miss Declan and Sydney’s story…one for the books!!
