R E V I E W ➠ Just Ten Seconds by Jeannine Colette


Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for my life to change forever.
I left my posh life in Manhattan and escaped to the Hudson Valley in hopes of a fresh start. It wasn’t until I happened upon a bereavement group when I finally found a place I felt understood. I told them my husband was dead when, really, I was the one who had died inside. It was also where I saw the smoldering gaze of Dean Delgado, the single father whom I’d helped just days before.
Just Ten Seconds
That’s all he wishes he had with his late wife.
Despite Dean’s widowed status, he has a robust thirst for life. He’s a protector and a giver. A man who fixes things with his hands, is devoted to his child, and wants to spend his days with me. I try to avoid him, knowing a woman with my past has no business being in this man’s life. With every run-in, he makes me laugh. With every touch, he ignites me. And with every second, he makes me feel like myself again.
Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for me to fall in love with Dean Delgado.
I’m in too deep and my secrets are about to be exposed. I only hope he can forgive me for the lies I never meant to tell.

RELEASE DATE: October 22, 2019

I was a pawn in the game of life. I just didn’t know I was playing.

“I had hope, and you appeared, My esperanca.”


Not my first read by author, I do believe it is my first the author alone review, the other’s were where it was joint. So, I was super excited for this. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I really like the Blurb so I went for it, and flipping A..this made it on my TOP 2019 list and if I could place it there three four times I would! *sigh* my heart with this.

Mara is a woman who is lost, not just your basic lost but deep down lost. The event she went through that brought her is something you’ll never expect. There is a mysterious factor to this plot and when you hit end of chapter 17 BOOM you’ll be saying ‘what just happened’. The twist and turn to this slow burn is amazing! The way she meets Dean and his beautiful daughter might have been a play of fate but everything after that was all Mara…until one day she finally realizes that, she screwed up. I can’t say how, when and what because let me tell you, you don’t want it spoiled. This heartfelt story will pull at the heart strings and play with your emotions while being SWOON ROMANTIC. Dean is *sigh* Dean is a man that comes around only once in a lifetime. He is handsome, tall, dark, half Italian-Portuguese and the best dad there could be. The way he is with his daughter…SWOON SWOON SWOON!

But this story is so much more in depth on all the levels. Not going too much into it to give anything up but the angst is higher from the experience. One experience that is shared with the other, yet a lie of omission is still a lie. The feelings this book brought out in me were unreal, I swooned, and felt the pain, laughed and cried. Just plain beautiful, all of it! I LIVED for the extended Epilogue YES! Can’t wait for more from the author! *this is from the heroine’s POV only.

R E V I E W ➠ The Love Trap by Nicole French

(Quicksilver #3)


A vow. A contract.
A marriage of fire and ice.
But just when Eric de Vries and I found our forever, the entire world conspired to keep us apart.
A kidnapping. A trial.
A madman bent on revenge.
Now caught in a web of our own passion and a father’s obsession, the harder we struggle, the tighter we’re caught
They say love conquers all, but it feels like we’re the conquest.
As the walls close in, I have to wonder…are we really meant to be?
Or is this love just a trap?

RELEASE DATE: October 10, 2019

Not my first read by author and I also have read the first 2 books The Hate Vow & The Kiss Plot in the series! This couldn’t have come sooner!! I really enjoyed the first two so the conclusion…MUCH NEEDED!

I don’t know where to start with this AMAZING trilogy without giving you a little of Book 1 & 2…which I won’t so I will give you a little of here…don’t want to ruin it for someone who hasn’t read the trilogy yet. That said, I would highly recommend reading Book 1 THE HATE VOW before diving into this!

Erin and Jane couldn’t be more perfect for one another even in the worst. Their story through out book 1 and 2 is mesmerizing, deep down CAN’T PUT THIS DOWN type of reading! This conclusion, nothing less of amazing but MUST MORE! You finally see it all come together, not saying that there is no action here THERE SURE IS, just a different kind of conclusion. The kind where it will make you believe in love again, make you realize that all the obstacles that come can’t keep away souls meant to be. Also helps that the author is equally amazing with her words, style and all. A MUST READ Trilogy for sure!

What do you do when actions bring devastation?
How do you pick up the pieces and keep moving forward?
One breath.
One second.
One minute.

One day at a time, you learn to live with your unexpected fall.

RELEASE DATE: October 10, 2019

These are my people and I need them more than ever.


Not my first read by author and I also have read Book 1 & 2 in this series which I loved too. So now it’s Dawn & Mark’s story and boy was I not ready for this one! What a complex romance with twists and totally unexpected!
Prepare to cry your eyes out in the beginning…oh my heart! Actually this entire book just be prepared to SWOON & CRY! Pretty much the sweetest with a twist of sexy stories you’ll get! I loved it from the beginning to end, which I didn’t want it to end! I mean the hero calls the heroine HIS PIXIE! It’s super adorable and the fact that he is 6’4 and she is a foot shorter…it’s just…GAH I LOVED IT ALL!

Mark is a man who kind of has it all, he is happy, has friends and family…also has Dawn he has been seeing for a while now. Dawn is best friends with Mark’s brother’s wives! So this is where I’d say YOU SHOULD read Book 1&2 but don’t have to. Them two they are beautiful together. Their relationship wasn’t something traditional, hidden maybe but not traditional. When things seem to shift, a life changing event occurs for Dawn…and THEY JUST KEEP ON COMING. Seems like every time Dawn tries to take control of her life, life hits her with a warning. But Mark, the sweetest most sexiest man on earth…want’s to be there for her…only she isn’t sure how to let anyone in when everything seems to always fall apart for her.

It’s such a beautiful love story and SO ROMANTIC! This is a re-read type of book for sure! The entire series but this one took the cake for me. Just beautiful!

R E V I E W ➠ Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely


Never have I ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.
They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.
The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney.
Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.
And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.

I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple — fight till the end for my clients, and my family.
The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with…except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years.
Second chances don’t come around for guys like me…or do they?

Falling for the enemy has never been so deliciously complicated in this standalone romance where a sexy single dad meets his unexpected match! Get ready for all the feels!

RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2019

“Never have I ever….


Not my first read by author & I have read one previous book in the series, see this is a multiple book series. There are 4 others before this, two of which are novellas. Now I enjoyed INSTANT GRATIFICATION BUT this one took the cake for me.

What happens when you pair a Divorce Attorney & a Wedding Planner? You didn’t guess it if you thought enemy-to-lovers…it’s a complicated combination of EVERYTHING I’d say! Zach & Pipper…a single dad and a woman who is head-strong and competitive. When they are paired together to plan their best friend’s engagement party…all bets are off! Pipper didn’t expect to be falling for his children, or for her to see a side of Zach maybe no one has, while Zach the man who worries about his children day in and out, is not sure what to do with feelings he hasn’t felt in a very long time. As much laughter and fun this was, it was so much more in depth. The romance is shattering!

Not everything you see in a person IS the person! There are many reasons people hide behind a persona, and many reasons people don’t confirm nor deny when someone is speculating about them. What was so beautiful in this the chemistry and actions between hero and heroine! It was romantic in the realEST! I don’t know how else to express it, yes the children played a huge deal to me too…absolutely heartbreaking and so beautiful the way Pipper is with them…this one just came together so well!

R E V I E W ➠ White Knight by Meghan March


I never expected to be anyone’s white knight. That’s not a role I’ve ever played.
But when the Casso crime family shifts into uncharted territory, they’re looking for a new hero, and they’re looking for me—Cannon Freeman, the black sheep.
But my time in disgrace is at an end.

More than anything, I will not let her fall.

RELEASE DATE: Ocober 1, 2019

“Baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to protect you. Just fucking let me.”


Not my first read by the author and YES I have read Book #1 Black Sheep! And I can’t express enough how much I loved both the books! This duo is going under my TOP 2019 must reads because, truly it’s amazon! Meghan March outdid herself!

Book 2 starts of with a bang that was left behind in end of Book 1! I don’t want to spoil too much though, but the sheer devotion of Cannon in this is SO BEAUTIFUL! I was shocked in the beginning, then angry, then the suspense…it’s just EVERYTHING i needed for a book 2 of a duo.

You learn more about the twisted family tree of Cannon and Memphis learns what it takes to be with a man like Cannon! The secrets, lies, suspense…I really really loved the duo in this, something about working together and the way Cannon is Romantic is off the harts…alpha, sexy and sweet all in one. He truly is the perfect bookboyfriend. And Memphis only rises in this one…you’ll understand after reading Book 1! I will warn you the twists in this…I was freaking out then reading faster to get the truth then slowing down because I didn’t want it to end. It was a roller coaster I never wanted to get off from! FANTASTIC READ! I will be re-reading this duo very soon! Meghan you are simply an extraordinary writer!

R E V I E W ➠ Forever My Saint by Monica James


All hope was lost until Zoey Hennessy walked back into my world, shaking it up beyond repair when she uttered two simple words.
He’s alive.

However, what I uncover can only be described as hell on earth. The darkness has finally won, and Saint is lost to me forever.
Or so I thought.

“You once said my demons dance with yours. And you’re right. They always have. Out love wasn’t perfect, but it was ours. And it was worth every single imperfect moment. You are worthy of life, Saint…

-Forever My Saint

Not my first read by author and I have been following (reading) all the books in this trilogy!! To say I have been waiting for this since probably middle of the first book is pretty accurate haha! Glad I am finally here, with that said I will RECOMMEND you read Book 1 and 2 before!

I want to touch base on book 1 and 2, I have full reviews of them of course but will say that I kind of just WENT FOR IT when i first signed up for book 1 thinking we will see…hell not even in the middle of it I KNEW I HAD TO read all the rest, so it’s been a game of I know this will be amazing but I also know there are 3 books to it. IT was worth it all the way! The first one kind of eases you into it in a way then book 2 pretty much threw you around like being stuck in a hurricane. FANTASTIC!

Book 3- well, I don’t really know where to begin honestly without giving too much away since it is a trilogy. It starts off where Book 2 left I will say that, at the end of Book 2 there was a huge BOOM and a hint then you come back to the heroine trying to go off a hunch to reveal the truth. A truth that is very crucial to her. The rest of the books you think will be all flowers and ends up being roses with thorns. It’s beautiful but does tear your heart out and bring out all the emotions for an ending that will have you feeling staggering and happy, and sad, and just want to re-read the entire series now that all three are out! Which by the way IS GOING TO HAPPEN to me at least! A MUST READ!

R E V I E W and G I V E A W A Y ➠ Butterfly In Frost by Sylvia Day


Once, I would never have imagined myself here. But I’m settled now. In a place I love, in a home I renovated, spending time with new friends I adore, and working a job that fulfills me. I am reconciling the past and laying the groundwork for the future.
Then Garrett Frost moves in next door.
He’s obstinate and too bold, a raging force of nature that disrupts the careful order of my life. I recognize the ghosts that haunt him, the torment driving him. Garrett would be risky in any form, but wounded, he’s far more dangerous. I fear I’m too fragile for the storm raging inside him, too delicate to withstand the pain that buffets him. But he’s too determined…and too tempting.
And sometimes hope soars above even the iciest desolation.

Emotional and heartrending, Butterfly in Frost marks a brilliant return by global sensation Sylvia Day, the #1 international multimillion bestselling author of the Crossfire saga.

Not my first read by author, I actually don’t know many if any people who haven’t..scratch that my friend Sam from @cool_moms_who_read hasn’t read Sylvia Day *tsk tsk tsk* anyways, I have read all her books and have been excited to hear she was putting something out again even if it was a shorter read (199 pages). Boy was i messed up after this, total #MindF*ck sorry for my language but you’ll see when you read it! I was able to read this in one sitting, and of course I finished at 130am with no clue what to do next!! Now this book does pertain a little to the Cross Series, that’s all I am saying!! I also have already heard from people reading it that they didn’t like it, again, to me it’s different because I am not expecting it to be AS the Cross series but going in with an open mind.

Heroine: talented, smart, beautiful and well off. But so broken deep down inside that not even a look at Garrett reminded her. Deep to the soul!!
[From the book: Heroine]
Dressed only in black shorts and shoes, he is a visual feast of deeply tanned skin, intricate sleeves of tattooed art, and sweat-slicked, flexing musculature.
Garrett: A man on a mission. Strong, artistic, sexy-as-sin and missing. Not just missing a piece of himself but more.

I can’t really say too much about the story it will ruin it because when you get to the end and it all MAKES SENSE you’ll look back at the characters actions and realize how HEARTBREAKING it all really was. Garrett is such a beautiful soul and my heart for the heroine, broke so much! All I can say is that it may seem it’s going fast then here then there, it is well worth to finish when your mind will be blown.

Infatuation is a dangerous thing.
It devours you. Manipulates you. Owns you.
You can try to ignore it, try to move past it. But it’s more powerful than you. It won’t let go.
The day I first saw him, infatuation dug its claws into my soul. I couldn’t stop it. Everything faded. Except him.
My infatuation blinded me. Made me see what it wanted me to see. Now I’m lost within the lie. Caged by the beast.
In the end, he will have me.
Until then…I fight.

RELEASE DATE: August 28, 2019

Not my first read by author and I have read Book #1 Depraved, and that is something I would highly recommend reading before this!! Gosh, where Book 1 left off was painful to wait for Book 2, not going to lie. This one is EXPLOSIVE!

Alyx and Granite…not sure where to begin here because nothing changed. Alyx is still seeing Granite as the monster and Granite can’t not feel guilty about everything that has happened. They both can’t deny their chemistry and maybe even meant to be after all but things don’t go as smooth sailing, even when one would think THE GOOD is going to happen…prepare because it WILL HIT YOU!

Granite wants to really make it and as in PRESIDENT make it of the MC Club but at what cost? Hard decisions are made and people are hurt. Alyx is already unsure of herself and now after the incident, everything has gotten even more rocky. Does this mean it’s the turning point finally for the two?

THIS IS A ‘ALL THE FEELS’ type of book, as was Book 1 but this one specifically much more. You feel every single word down to the core, the betrayal, lies and hurt. For it being dark and very vivid it’s very enchanting, draws you in even in the bad. You still get the romance, passion and love…but for a price for sure! Emotional Price that is!! Watch out for the twist and I am so happy I got to finish Alyx & Granite’s story!!

American street kings series BOOK #1

R E V I E W ➠ Broken Knights by LJ Shen

All Saints High #2


Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.
Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
To live.
To love.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Release Date: August 25, 2019

“Moonshine,” he whispered.
“You fill up the empty, dark space–like the moon owns the sky. It is quiet. It is bright. It doesn’t need to be a ball of flame to be noticed. It simply exists. It forever glows.”

He looked cold as tombstone. I’d always thought of him as a cold-blooded creature.

Not my first read by author but my first official ARC review, and I have to say that I have not read Book #1 in this series Pretty Reckless, so here I go. Also I’d like to clarify that I usually and by usually I mean I really never read any YA romance, so this will be something new for me and an experience.

From understanding that Luna is the girl who is in love with Knight and vise versa even from very young age. It’s very sweet when they are at that vulnerable age and young love! Then you get the back story about her parents and HEARTBREAK. I can only imagine how they both feel. In some way I can relate to her social up-bringings, just heartbreaking!

From the book:
Oftentimes, he smelled of my heartbreak.

The untouchable and the nobody, I know it’s of young age but my heart really hurt for this. And so it goes on, a faker and a liar! Oh the young days, this sure reminds me exactly how well LJ Shen is with her words. This story sure took me for a ride, as painful as it was, it was like real life. I rather enjoyed it considering I do not do YA and was little nervous to try.

The reason my review doesn’t contain a lot of book information is because I don’t know how to review a YA yet, I am focusing on the positive therefore all I can say is that it will take you for a ride, break you and then break you even more before it remotely puts you back together. Also the whole timeline from them being 8/9 and then teenagers just barely up to 19/18 age, the parents pain, the high school pressure, it was all INTENSE! I’d like to mention that LJ Shen is the shit when it comes to words, even though this was not my taste because it’s YA i appreciate the story and words SO MUCH, she just has a way with them and it’s magical!
