R E V I E W ➠ Southern Sunrise by Natasha Madison




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!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Surge by Kennedy L. Mitchell




Now what?
Everything has changed, and not for the better. The not-so-perfect life I had as VP is gone, along with the team that’s been by my side each step of my political journey. Every move I make, every breath and thought, now affects millions, and the weight wears me down without Trey as a welcomed distraction.
They tell me war is coming, and I’m the one who has to stop it. But how is the question no one can answer. Past enemies lurk in the shadows while new ones hide in plain sight, stalking, watching, and waiting for the right moment to take me out. I need Trey back. I need them all by my side and ready to fight for me.
Can I undo the mess that my predecessor left in his wake, or will I break under the burden to save the world?
No pressure, right?

RELEASE DATE: June 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE me some Kenndy books. I also have read the previous 3 books in this series and am very anxious for book #5 the conclusion because this one took me by surprise!

What I want ot say so far is that yes each book is based on the same hero and heroine but you get so much action and the ride along with it…will have you wanting more. This is a political romance, so the only disclaimer I had so far was the romance part that exists but me being a die hard romance lover I always crave a lot…which the author did give me in book 3 I’ll never forget that and absolutely LOVED it…that said I also loved the beginning and in between…this book starts off with a BANG and I wasn’t sure where it was going to go, in which all I never know it’s more a TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE type of books..the good kind of surprise. I don’t want to give out too much because this is a you SHOULD READ FROM BOOK 1 type of read because well you want that build of relationship between the hero and heroine. This one is a little less romance and a lot of action, it has some beautiful romantic moments that will have you swoon right out of your panties! These two are a magnet for one another, when life throws them every curve possible, they not only maneuver it but also always end up at the same path. Just plain beautiful the hero and heroine’s relationship, the events…BE PREPARED!

I am SUPER READY FOR BOOK #5 the conclusion!!

R E V I E W ➠ Forever Only Once by Carrie Ann Ryan




Hazel Noble has survived horrors she wouldn’t inflict on her worst enemy. Since then, she’s healed, found herself, and connected with a group of women she’s proud to call her friends. However, when they make a pact to start looking for love, Hazel finds herself not only up first but also forced to face a past she thought she’d escaped.
Cross Brady has no need for a relationship. As the oldest of five, he’s always been the one his family can rely on. Now, all he wants is to work in peace and live his life. His priorities shift dramatically, though, when Cross finds himself in Hazel’s path.
Though the two initially fight their connection, they soon learn that it’s safer to fall for each other than keep running from what’s holding them back—not to mention, who wants them dead.

RELEASE DATE: June 23, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read almost all of the contemporary ones, so this NEW series was a surprised and exciting welcome. I mean I couldn’t fall in love harder with both hero and heroine if I wanted to! Just plain loved it ALL!

This is a story of two human that HAD meet-cute but refused to see it. The heroine is a woman that has escaped but still living in fear. The hero is a man who seems to have it all but is still missing something. When these two come together accidentally, it’s the most beautiful way they are together. Cross is the sweetest hero, he is patient, kind, sweet, sexy and alpha. I loved them together, even in the not so good times…it was great. This will pull you into the real version as I call it, basically it feels more real because of the feelings and actions from the hero and heroine. I love that they both were so vulnerable to new and to one another that their honestly to each other is kind of what made them work. Definitely recommend this beginning to a new series!

R E V I E W ➠ A Little Bit Wicked by Melissa Foster




What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.
Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud.

But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?

RELEASE DATE: June 17, 2020

Justin, she said apologetically. “You know I swore off dating bad boys a long time ago.”
“That’s what you keep saying, but you have no idea how good bad can be.”

…It was her favorite country song. She couldn’t believe her ears. “Justin…?”

Not my first read by the author and not my last, MF is actually one of my top 5 favorite author’s and also one of my very first reads…so if you asked me how many books I’ve read by her…my answer would be ALL! This was an exciting NEW something from MF!

This is a TRUE LOVE story, paved with lot’s of obstacles and barriers and two opposite VERY opposite people who fit each other in every way possible. We have Justin the hero who is very manly but the biggest heart and the sweetest but in just a alpha and sexy way. Their flirting at the beginning and catching each other, IN LOVE with the process. This is slow burn but a very fun one! Both hero and heroine come from a troubling and broken pasts but I have to be honest the way they both come together isn’t just beautiful but inspiring and sweet and sexy and sensual. Like I said you will fall in love with JUSTIN continuesly through out the book!

In here you will get fun, laughter, sweetness, love and passion…the kind of passion in all aspects (family, relationship and actions). Truly an amazing start to a new series. Can’t wait for more!!

R E V I E W ➠ Agony by Kaylee Ryan




Reese
Cooper Reeves was the boy-next-door. Every milestone, every memory of my youth was entangled with his.
We were inseparable… until college.
It wasn’t his friends, girls or even sports that came between us— it was me.
Tired of being in the friend zone, I finally made a move. Turns out it was the wrong one.
Cooper walked away to play his first year of professional football and left me behind with a broken heart.
Cooper
It’s always been her. Even before I really knew what love was, Reese Latham was by my side, making me swear we’d be best friends forever.
And we were… until one night changed everything. I knew how she felt because I felt it too, but I pushed her away to save our friendship.
The longer we’re apart, the more I realize she’s not only my best friend, Reese is the love of my life.
I was kidding myself thinking I could let her go because now I know that living without her is the worst kind of agony. 

RELEASE DATE: June 18, 2020

Not my first by the author and I have read all her books and absolutely love the author’s style and words. That said, this is something a little bit different and new from her and so I was just jumping in. I will say that it does contain a slight trigger of mine, I say slight because I managed to get past it pretty fast and continue reading, without eeven blinking back.

Reese and Cooper are two people who have been inseparable through out their whole life, heck even their parents are best friends and in each other’s lives at all times. Their chemistry always is sparkling but Cooper does not want to do anything to ruing their friendship that means the world to him even if he might feel more for Reese and Reese doesn’t know how he feels the same for her. It’s basically a thin line that they both walk, because on one hand it would be so easy to fall into place and the other, no one want’s to risk losing a person. After all, their relationship is not just a friendship but a soul mate type of relationship in all the ways!

This will make you laugh, swoon and even fall in love with both hero and heroine but it will also break your heart, make you want to yell at them and mend it all together. For the first time I was not ready for the author to surprise me in the best way possible. This is a Cliffy and so be prepared because after Book 1 I am not sure which way it’s going to go. Very SLOW-BURN and I don’t want to give out too much but definitely need Book 2 already, like now!

R E V I E W ➠ The Change Up by Meghan Quinn




BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped.
Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it’s the reality of my current situation.
It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She got a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I’ve known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have her stay at my place for a while?
Ha! Total disaster.
Now instead of going out every night with my teammates, I’m couch surfing and sketching endless photos of my best friend . . . but that’s the least of my concerns.
The disaster, you ask? I’m rapidly falling head over cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan.
And she has no idea . . . 

RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read most of her books!! I was excited about this one because a mix of Meghan’s writing and rom-com…such a huge sucker for good rom-com’s and this one took the cake for sure!!

Maddox Paige is not what I expected, yes he looks like the bad boy, sleeping with a new girl every night type of man who has it all but he has the BIGGEST heart and when he is sweet, boy will your tooth hurt! I loved LOVED Maddox with Kinsley *sigh* and *swoon* their friendship is beautiful. Kinsley is the type of woman that will bat for you no matter what, she is loyal to the core and that’s why there wasn’t a single thing I did not like about her, all her actions are pure. Maddox’s past is heartbreaking, but Kindley really is there for him in all the ways possible. When their lines are blurred, things heat up and that slow burn will burn very bright! Like I said one of my favorite rom-com’s and hero’s!

R E V I E W ➠ Hooking Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds




Anna McAlister needs a new life. But that doesn’t mean she needs a new man. After leaving her fiancé and Chicago behind, she promises herself no dating until she finds what she’s looking for. But meeting one seriously hot and determined detective has her questioning herself.
Calvin Miller is that detective, and he’s been burned by women in the past. It’s easy for him to sleep alone and focus on his work, but the moment he lays eyes on Anna, he starts imagining sexy nights with her wrapped in his sheets. Maybe it’s time to get back out there.
But just as the attraction between them begins to sizzle, Anna’s past shows up to create trouble. And to make matters worse, a string of murders forces Calvin to juggle his new relationship and his career. His worst fear? That the two are somehow connected.
Can they find love together, or will her past and his duty sink their hopes?

RELEASE DATE: June 16, 2020

I think by now a lot of you know how much of a Aurora fan I am, I have read and re-read all of her books, and this was a bitter-sweet one because it’s the last one in the series. I really could use another 5 or 6 in the series. And Calvin, most favorite HERO this year.

Calvin took the cake for me. He is a handsome, sexy, tall, funny, loyal, alpha and sweetest man alive..oh an a Police Officer that has a soft spot for sweet heroines that are a bit sassy. Which out Heroine Anna is, they come from very different worlds yet all it took was one look. Calvin wants to understand Anna and Anna wants to shield him from her family and past. Little bit of drama, action and mystery in this one, sweetest moments…gah I loved everything about this and like I said wish there was another 5 or 6 more! I highly recommend this entire series!!

R E V I E W ➠ Loner by Harloe Rae




“Everyone deserves a chance to be rescued.”
That’s the mantra I’m repeating when a well-equipped biker pulls over to save me. One glance at the scowl Crawford Doxe is wearing proves he isn’t impressed with the task. My efforts to change his mind deflate faster than the shredded tire at our feet. But disgruntled or not, my so-called hero still agrees to fix my flat.
I don’t expect to see Crawford again, but he’s suddenly very visible in our small town. Avoiding him would be my preference. That’s not how this story goes. For whatever reason, my daughter finds an ally in the broody mechanic. Denying her is something I do my best to avoid. I can only hope Crawford’s shine wears off before he tarnishes what little trust still exists.
As if the odds are ever on my side.
Commitments are a foreign concept to him. He doesn’t make any promises to try. That should’ve been enough for me to steer clear. It most certainly isn’t.
What follows can only be described as a disastrous clash of epic proportions.
But one indisputable fact remains.
That lone soul has no plans of opening his heart.

RELEASE DATE: Jume 11, 2020

This is not my first read by the author but I haven’t read lot of her books yet. That said this one was a enemy to which is my favorite.

 I can always appreciate this authors writing and words, she definitely has a way with them.  I lived Millie, she was like a little cute adorable referee between the hero and her mama the heroine. It was really sweet! Overall once I got warmed up more to the heroine and hero, they really do not hold back and it’s beautiful all around. Glad I was able to review this, looking forward to more!

R E V I E W ➠ Cheesy On The Eyes by Teagan Hunter




Dating is hard. Dating in a small town? Impossible.
Leave it to my little brother to come back home announcing he knocked up his fiancée and the wedding has been moved…to next month.
When he tries to set me up with one of his football buddies, I tell him I’ll be bringing my own plus-one.
Only problem? I’m hopelessly single.
Enter Sullivan Scott, AKA my hero.
We strike a deal: he’ll pretend to be my boyfriend, and I’ll use my mechanic skills to help him fix his boat. That’s it. No funny business, and definitely no feelings involved.
Sully’s quiet and reserved, and I’ve been told I’m too much to handle on a good day. We’re opposites, and neither of us is looking for anything serious.
I’m certain we can keep this strictly platonic… 

RELEASE DATE: June 4, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have pretty much read every book of hers including all the ones in this series. And let’s just say I’ve been waiting for Sullivan’s story so hard! Best meet ever haha already loved this from the get go. Teagan has a talent for ROM-COM’s that have enough of everything else including romance that you will love it from the first chapter!

These two are opposite yet very alike. The heroine is a tom-boy that isn’t looking for a relationship and the hero is a easy-going smooth sexy man that isn’t looking for anything either. They were brought together by an incident and here they are living the lie that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Only when the lie get’s blurred for the both of them, they think they can keep it in check…but things never work out how you want them too.

I really loved these two together. The hero kind of fit so well with the heroine and her quirky ways. And I will not get yout oo excited about the sexy scenes because OH. MY. GOD. yes!! Another fantastic read!
