R E V I E W ➠ Crash Into You by J.H. Croix


(Dare With Me #1)


A hotshot pilot and a Southern princess looking for a fresh start collide in the wilds of Alaska
The first time I met Daphne involved three things: a cute skirt, a bear, and mud. Lots of mud
Daphne is everything I don’t need, and she makes me crazy in all the wrong ways. This princess does not belong in the wilderness. Or, so I think. But then, thought is hard to come by around Daphne
Between flying tourists all over Alaska’s skies, hotshot firefighting on the side, raising my sixteen year old sister who has enough attitude to run the world, and fending off demons from my days in the military, I don’t have time for women
But time’s been laughing at me ever since Daphne showed up. I can’t get her out of my mind, and my control has fled the building. Oh, and I’m her boss
One night, just one night, I let things go too far. Now, all bets are off.

RELEASE DATE: October 13, 2020

NEW to me author, I do have a couple books on my TBR from the author but this was the first time I dived in. The blurb is what caught my attention. I am so glad I gave this a shot. I fell in love with the author’s writing, characters and style.

This story caught me from the beginning. We have this super cute, put together, very proper heroine who is OUT IN THE WORLD if you will. She runs into the most handsome man alive, he just happens to be a pilot and owner of where she is staying for the month. This adventure really takes you for some fun, sweet and sexy rides. I really try and not to give out too much of the story line because honestly when I click with a book and enjoy it, I want my reader friends to dive in and experience the same. The story line really was smooth, actions was sexy, the sweet and swoony moments on point. Honestly, I will definitely be reading more form this author especially this series.

R E V I E W ➠ I Promise You by Ilsa Madden-Mills




Dillon McQueen: Babe. I promise. You want me.
Serena Jensen: Um, who are you?

There’s a legend at Waylon University: the first girl you kiss freshman year at the bonfire party is the one you’ll never forget. She’ll crawl under your skin and never leave. She’ll spark a passion so fierce you’ll burn the world down to possess her.
You might even put a ring on it.
As in all things with fate, timing is everything. That kiss can go horribly wrong. She might run in the opposite direction. And boy, did Serena run.
Dillon is Waylon’s hotshot quarterback with something to prove. All he wants is to graduate and make it to the NFL. What he doesn’t need is to finally meet the mystery girl he kissed at the bonfire freshman year. Isn’t it enough that she’s haunted his dreams for more than a thousand nights?
Fate laughs in his face when he runs into the quirky girl at the Piggly Wiggly. Surrounded by his entourage, he’s got all the Oreos in his cart; she gets revenge by buying every six-pack of his favorite beer.
Obviously, that legend is a curse. She’s not his type. She hates him. Worst of all, how can she not remember him when she left a Serena-shaped hole in his heart for the past three years?
So why can’t he stop trying to win her?
Will this quarterback score the girl or make the biggest fumble of his life? 

RELEASE DATE: October 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the previous in the standalones.

This was a definite new adult, meaning it’s been a while since I’ve read the other’s in the stand alone’s hehe I really loved the heroine because she did not give in. These two were fire crackers together…but he calls her Dandelion and I just loved them together in all the aspects. Really sweet together, Serena like I said did not give in she was strong and fierce but so damn sweet and Dillon for being who he is and with his past, he made me SWOON ALL OVER THE PLACE! One of the best parts of this aside form those two is the side characters, each one was wonderful and fit well together. I really am trying not to give out too much here haha because it’s really worth diving into and I got to tell you, this made me want to re read I BET YOU. This has my vote, dive right in!

R E V I E W ➠ Body of Trust by Jeannine Colette




In the dark, winding hills overlooking the New York Harbor lay the city’s most exclusive club. A mansion that offered a glimpse back to the days when the mob had ruled New York
I took my seat at the bar and flirted with the man behind it—the one who made me weak in the knees yet kept his personal life a veiled secret
It started off like any other, except, that night, Jesse Grant and I shared a moment
And then all hell broke loose
As gunfire rained down, I fell to the floor in fear, only to be shielded by a man who was risking his own life to save mine
Jesse led me away from danger that night. While traipsing through the underground tunnels of the city, I learned my family wasn’t who I’d thought they were and no one could be trusted … including Jesse
He devoured my body and stole my heart. Then, he left in the shadows of the night, leaving me to wonder if he was really who he had said he was
Discovering dark secrets, intense attraction, and a plot where everyone’s life was on the line … my once-boring life morphed into that of a crime drama
And there was only one man I was willing to give my trust to. I just prayed that he was worth the risk.

RELEASE DATE: October 10, 2020

“I’ve waited months to kiss you. I’m not missing out on any more chances.”

-Jesse

Not my first read by the author, and I have enjoyed all of the ones I have read. This was something else and different form the author so it took me a little to get used to it. I don’t know if I just wasn’t used to this type form the author but I couldn’t get into it fully or fast enough. I was fighting myself between Dark Mafia Romance the full on effect and this which to me seemed a in between so that’s probably why I was battling between it. That said the romance part of this was amazing and I loved it from Jeannine because she really does that well but the mafia and suspense was not there fully for me. The heroine was a 50/50 but I really did enjoy the hero, he kept me going to be honest. I am glad I had the chance to review and read something different I am used to from the author.

RELEASE DATE: October 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the other 2 book ins the series.

This playboy HAS A BIG HEART! I loved watching these two skirt around the idea of them actually together but a means to an end. Jaxson and Macy were great together, they fit well together in all the aspects. I wasn’t AS feeling them two as the other books in the series but you can’t have it all am I right. That said this story line was smooth, easy transitions, steamy, sweet and romantic. You will fall in love with both the hero and heroine!

R E V I E W ➠ Vicious King by Bella Emy & S.S. Richards




The rise of an empire is here…
Even angels cannot be trusted.
I’m the devil, and she’s the angel.
It wasn’t hard for me to get to her.
She came to me so easily.
My charms combined with a little wining and dining, and the woman fell into my arms like a leaf on an autumn day.
She should have run away.
She shouldn’t have trusted me.
But she did.
And now, it’s time for revenge.
I’ll stop at nothing until her crimson-red blood is coating my hands.

RELEASE DATE: October 8, 2020

Not my first read by both author’s! When I saw they joined forces I was excited!

This was a perfect combo of both authors, well put together and lots of twist and turns. I do have to say off the bat that it was a 50/50 for me. There was something that rubbed me the wrong way about both characters and I can’t put my finger on it. I am just saying the taste of them together, just something off for me. The characters were a little younger to my liking and by that I mean the heroine, she just, I get where she was coming from and the situation but she was very simple but naïve. That said, I did enjoy the story line and situations, Lot’s of heart in it.

A great experience to get both author’s in one book, glad I was able to read/review this.

RELEASE DATE: November 1, 2020

Not my first read by the author but I haven’t read a lot so this was just an add on to continue getting to know the authors style.

I was definitely not ready for Lorenzo. My heart went out to him, from everything he has been through to the man he was today. Single-Dad no Single-GREAT-dad alert because gosh he will have yo melting. The love he has for his child, from that moment you can just imagine what kind of love he can give to a woman. In comes

Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since
Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there’s Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months
Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

RELEASE DATE: October 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author. She happens to be my top 5 favorite of authors and a very early read many moons ago. That said I have read enough of MF’s books to know that I LOVE her writing style and always look forward to her books! Also have rea d the other 6 previous books in series! This is MY FAV SERIES!

Oh my hear ton this one. I knew it was going to be emotional but I didn’t know how much. So to help out a little the hero in this is Tru’s brother from book #1. He is not only broken but lived through it. Meaning after everything both him and Tru have been through, unfortunately Quincy took a wrong turn and spend many years in his own hell.

Coming from a broken home, she knows what it means to have lost. When these two get together it’s not just the chemistry but ALL THE FEELINGS! This heartbreaking story will put back and heal you, every feelings between Quincy and Roni is felt, make sure to have some tissue because it will get emotional.

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!
