R E V I E W ➠ Fighting For Us by Bella Emy


Worth Fighting For Series


LORENZO
I had it all.
A wonderful family with a loving wife who was my world and a beautiful baby girl.
I didn’t need anything more to be rich in my eyes.
Then one day, everything changed and my world was ripped apart.
My wife, my everything, was taken from me, and I was left alone to raise our baby girl.
I was forced from late night sessions at the gym to changing diapers all by myself.
Thank God for the help I received from my parents and siblings or I would have been lost.
I accepted my fate of being alone with my baby girl and living life with just us two…
Until the day I met her, and she became everything worth fighting for.
CARISSA
Life was so perfect.
A loving fiancé, wonderful friends and family, and a job I adored.
Until one day, my world was turned upside down and the man I loved threw the promise of forever down the drain and walked out of my life.
The day he walked out of my door, I knew that everything I had ever grown up to believe in was a lie.
Love is unconditional but love sure as hell doesn’t last forever.
The vow to love me for the rest of our lives ended quickly as he pulled away from me, and buried himself in the arms of his ex.
I was left alone, cursing the male species and everyone who had found their happily ever after.
My sister and my best friend were the only ones there for me…
Until the day I met him, and he became everything worth fighting for.

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

(The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor #7)


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.

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 ➠ False Start by Shanna Swenson


(The Gods of the Gridiron, #2)


Almighty Zeus , thrower of thunderbolts… Ha
Brett “Brickhouse” McFadden may be called Zeus on the Gladiators football field, but when the man who’s been his best friend and favorite receiver for over a decade gets killed instead of him, he’s completely helpless and left to pick up the pieces Hunter “Hermes” Thomas left behind
The one and only constant in Brett’s life has always been his hidden love for his first best friend, Madison Thomas, the perfect girl he fell in love with at seven—yes, seven—years of age, who also happens to be Hunter’s widow. Love is complicated after all
Now that Hunt’s gone, Madi needs him more than she ever has, and Brett feels utterly blessed to be given this second chance, but will the shameful guilt be enough to kill him too
Madison Thomas, CEO and VP of the Atlanta Gladiators, thought her life was well-established, until the unimaginable happened; the abrupt death of her husband, Hunter. Her overdependence on her best friend, Brett, begins to intensify as the darkest days of her life follow and she finds herself bombarded with the regrets of her past…and the unavoidable attraction she’s always felt for the perfectly-sculpted “king of the gods”
As new revelations come to light, Madi starts to see that Hunter wasn’t the husband—or man—she thought he was. Now, she must storm past the FALSE START she was given and embrace the possibility of a do-over with the one she’s always wanted—Brett McFadden
Will the “god of thunder” prove to be the better contender for Hera’s heart or will this long-suffering Olympian forever remain fourth and inches from his ultimate goal line?

RELEASE DATE: September 25, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read Book 1 in this series also.

This is the second book in the series featuring Brett as the hero and Madison the heroine. I am always a fan of second-chance romance and this was a beautiful one. Bret’s guilt for what happened to Hunter really guts him and always hits him hard…Madi my heart breaks for her, she lost someone she loves so close to her heart, he was everything to her. So imagine the pain both hero and heroine feel going on with life, trying to move on. This was so heartbreaking in all the levels because both have suffered a loss heck Madi suffered it double it feels…so it takes time, time to heal right! Together is the key word here, together they heel one another, it’s a slow burn but a sweet slow burn of two people who find solace in one another and when they become one, it’s so beautiful will make your heart soar.

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.

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!!!!!
