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 ➠ 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 ➠ 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.

R E V I E W ➠ See Me After Class by Meghan Quinn




“Did you have relations with my brother . . .
Good question
I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother
My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago
But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office
Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league
And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time
Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author and not my last as always I love Meghan’s books! This one was a good and then a slight bad at the end for me, hence the 4.5 stars rating. Nothing actually bad just personal preference.

A fun heroine, loving and loves her job, and a hero that is very straight forwards, serious and on point…this was so much FUN to read. As Meghan’s books usually are, but this one I was laughing out loud through out the book. The attraction between the two was ADDICTING…the hero was enough grumpy, alpha, sexy…and the heroine, gosh i enjoyed her, she was the type that wanted to move on and make it a better one if you will. Co-workers that has such strong chemistry are bound to tip over the line, this adventure was done in a fun, sweet, sexy and exciting way!

The ending is the only thing that bothered me, and both I and my bookbestie both talked about and agreed, it just kind of…ends. That’s all I am going to say.

R E V I E W ➠ Preacher by Christopher Harlan




My preacher absolved no sins, because he was the sinner.
Lyric:
They say that you should give your heart away to the right guy, but mine was taken from me ten years ago, the moment Preacher moved into town and sent a blast wave through my life. He was my walking contradiction—gentle eyes set in a hardened face, an angel and an uncaged beast, mesmerizing good looks and terrifying ferocity, my savior and my destroyer.
When he disappeared senior year he broke me like so much fragile glass. I thought I’d moved on from what happened between us, but now he’s reappeared out of nowhere, upending my life and reminding me that I can never break his hold over me.
Preacher:
I was trouble with a capital T—the guy your mom warned you to stay away from because he’d ruin you. She was right. I had no business being with a girl like Lyric—it was against all the rules—but when the hell have I ever followed other people’s rules?
Never.
She was beautiful, delicate, and oh so breakable. I was forceful, aggressive, and cocky as hell. Ten years ago fate split us apart. But now I’m back, here in New York, to remind Lyric of what she knows deep down but has always tried to deny.
That she’s mine, and she always will be. 

RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2020

NEW to me author and books. After reading the blurb I was very intrigued to read. This was a rather interesting book, had me going back and forth between love and dislike. The only reason for the dislike honestly is because Preacher was a PRICK at times in a I don’t like him very much way, yes he redeems himself but there were a couple of times I had to put my kindle down and just put it down hehe.

The best part about this is what we get it all, the story, the before after, in between. I enjoyed all the characters, more the heroine so but all of them fit well together. This second chance had me grasping he kindle to find out what is going to happen and at the same time wanting to throw it across the room. Great start for my new AUTHOR and BOOKS and after this I will say that I will read more by the author.

R E V I E W ➠ Only One Chance by Natasha Madison


(Only One #2)


Mille
They called me the pretty boy on and off the ice. Hockey’s most eligible bachelor
When my teammate asked me to donate one date to his charity, I figured why not. Worst case, I’d spend the night with a fan. Best-case scenario, she would be hot. What I wasn’t expecting was for my dream girl to be the highest bidder
For years, she brushed me off, and now, I finally had a chance to take her out and show her who I really was
With only one shot at this, I really hoped I didn’t mess it up
Layl
At the top of my career, I was riding the wave of my sports talk show having the best rating on the radio
I also made it a rule to never date any sports players
It was my one rule, and I was sticking to it until I bid on the only man who gets under my skin
All it takes is one touch, one night, one kiss, and only one chance.

RELEASE DATE: October 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author! I have read the first book in this series too and will say that I can’t wait for the next story, Manning.

I have mixed feelings over this story and I will try and be short because if I went fully in depth I’d give away the story but I just mixed feelings about the heroine. At times it was a little slow for me and dragged a bit. The characters, well the hero is a fun outgoing player type of hockey player and the heroine is she is wild and out there and upfront but something just I can’t explain it but something didn’t fit with me for them. They both have the biggest hearts and when you get the sweet of both of them, it’s really sweet and your heart will melt but the in between and actions, and occurrences…I don’t know it felt off that’s really the only way I can explain it. I loved it but at the same time was like hmmm…

That said, there is a lot of fun in this, a CRAZY AF GRANDMA that is wildly inappropriate in all the levels, 25K and flipping GOOGLE haha! I can’t say I didn’t have fun reading it, the ending really grabbed me and two epilogues so I WAS happy and really ended on the sweetest note…minus Manning!

R E V I E W ➠ Every Sweet Regret by Lexi


(Orchid Valley #2)


For as long as I can remember, Kace Matthews has been my brother’s best friend and my not-so-secret crush. But I knew nothing would ever happen between us. The successful single dad doesn’t fall for the hot mess party girl. Kace + Stella exists in the doodles in my high school notebooks and in my dreams. Never in real life.
Until he finds me on a hookup app and starts flirting shamelessly.
It turns out high school Stella was not prepared for Kace Matthews. Adult Stella isn’t much better, but I manage to break down the walls to show Kace the real me—not just the life-of-the-party exterior, but the vulnerable pieces I hide from the world. Combine that with the combustible chemistry we have in real life, and I’m a goner.
Too bad it takes me so long to realize Kace doesn’t know I’m the girl he’s been falling for online. Telling him the truth now that he knows my secrets could mean losing everything, and that’s one regret that could break me.

RELEASE DATE: October 13, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have not read any of the other books in the series.

Stella Jacob and Kace Matthews were explosive in a not so great way. Messy and complicated is how I would call these two. I won’t lie but I didn’t LOVE the heroine. Stella is the best friends little sister, a wild child, party out there girl that really doesn’t chance too much. Kace is a man that is going through a lot, divorced, single dad, and truly going through a lot personally too. These two together were just I don’t know how to exactly express it but it was a little like water/oil.

There really is a lot that goes on here. Side characters, secrets, flirting, mystery, ex’s, family and friends…but here is the kicker Kace has a huge dilemma…chose the woman that he has been talking to online that is a great listener, sweet and gives great advice or the woman he has been secretly wanting for a long time but a bit of a wild card. What comes of this is a lot of Kace trying to find himself and Stella being messy but still deep down is a woman looking to belong. Great story, keeps you engaged and lot’s of adventure. I was going back and forth between 4 or 4.5 stars, in the end because of the ending I chose 4.5!
