R E V I E W ➠ Dangerous Temptations by Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer



GOODREADS AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE -> KELLY / KRISTIN

Mike Murphy is the new cop in town.
He makes me crazy in all the right ways.
So crazy that I lose mt filter around him, not to mention by ability
to function like a normal person.
The attraction between us is undeniable and something we can’t
ignore.
But there’s a secret that threatens to come between us. When we
uncover more than we should, things become dangerous.
Will we be able to walk away, or will the quest to find the truth be
too tempting?

“…Come by the clinic sometimes if you ever need a vet.” What. The. Hell? If you never need a vet?

-Sydney

Oh, just Mr. Sexy Pants sizzling my bacon. Again with the bacon?

-Sydney

“I’m amazon. I’m wonderful. I’m blissfully happy. I hope this isn’t a dream.”

Not my first read by both author’s and they both are one of my top favorites!! So I will say this, if you want fun & adventure with a lot of swoon and romance….this is it!!!!!

Sydney is a successful Vet, who is living her life…even if it’s alone. When I say alone I mean alone, she lost her parents a couple years before and now here she is spreading the ashes of the last family member to have around. Her beloved grandfather, someone she looked up to and counted on especially after her parents passed. She is upset that she couldn’t make it down earlier to live their dream of practicing together, but she vows to upkeep his legacy and so she moves back home to the small town that holds so many secrets.

This is where Mike; Office Murphy comes in, one night while standing in front of the practice, he scares the life out of her. He has been keeping an eye on her grandfathers place and no one was expecting her back early. Their meet is one for the books!! Sydney is a unique woman, quirky in the cutest way ever and sort of has no filter on her mouth. What she thinks is unattractive to Mike (because of her past experience) she is surprised when she keeps seeing him around town. Aside from Mike there is Wesley her childhood long time best friend she hasn’t seen in a while. She is just glad to be back in known land and honestly, a fresh new start is something she has needed.

Characters
Sydney: smart, funny and beautiful..so beautiful she has no idea. She is unique as in quirky and sometimes tends to say what her mumbled brain thinks.
Mike: Strong, very smart, handsome, sexy and SO SWOON WORTHY! Gah!! He is really dreamy guys, perfect combo!

When Sydney is given something her grandfather left behind, she is of joy because even as a child she and her grandpa always loved a good scavenger hunt! And this is no different! Except it is in every aspect of the way. What happens next is the adventure of a life. Throw in some funny parents who are very open with their son, lot’s of danger and some magically beautiful romance and you have this master-piece! Nothing is as it seems, pay attention and try to solve it yourself…at the end, you’ll realize that what you thought was ISN’T and there is so SO MUCH MORE!!

Kaysen and I are happy with our no-strings-attached relationship even though he‘s my boss.
Or so I thought.
Now he wants more.
I’m not capable of giving more of myself, but I’m afraid to lose him.
He’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of but wouldn’t allow myself to have.
I don’t deserve him.
Kaysen doesn’t agree.
If I’m honest, we’re perfect for each other in every way.
And that complicates everything.

RELEASE DATE: September 9, 2019

That was what made us perfect for each other in every single way. It was what made us…complicated.

-Wynter

There was hope. As long as there was hope, we had a chance.

-Kaysen

Not my first read by author & will never be last. She has become one of my top favorite authors and I’ll pretty much read anything by her! Although I have read Book in this and so am excited for Kaysen & Wynter’s story!! I have to say that I was NOT READY for this at all, it is something new to me from the author & very refreshing!

Wynter has never had the best childhood, so when she turns 18 and is finally happy and in love with her rich boyfriend who also hasn’t had the best childhood (all parents related mostly) nothing can go wrong, right? It went wrong, in so many levels that I wasn’t sure on how to feel about it. It kind of went in, did a hurricane things and then spit me back out! Then you fast forward many years and you think it will start or continue one way but BAM! it doesn’t in a sense of I can’t tell you much because it would ruin it. But I will say that what I though and happened totally like night and sky. In a good way of course.

Kaysen comes in the sense of he is Wynter’s best friend and boss. They have been a round one another for a little over 5 years now, and it’s just…it’s a complex story at the least. Wynter is a difficult character because she also is complex, not ever having had gone through what she did and had to do or rather chose to do, I can’t understand her hesitations and feelings…it really made me focus on her a lot. Kaysen is in the same boat, dealt a hand earlier in life that stuck with him for good. Are they both too broken to be together? Or, will they be able to overcome their fear and past…to be able to have any kind of future together.

Both POV’s provided. Unique and a little different then I am used to from author so stick with it, promise there is a HEA!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Her Dirty Secret by Melanie A. Smith


(The Safeguarded Heart Series Book #4)

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Emily Hoyt is often referred to as a “free spirit,” but she knows that’s just a nice way to say “flake.” Thick-skinned and stubborn, she doesn’t let it bother her — she simply does what makes her happy. It’s a hard thing to pull off living in the shadow of her perfect big brother, who does everything right. So when big brother Bryce unexpectedly announces he’s married his perfect match, Emily once again feels the pressure to be more than the meandering musician she is.
At exactly the moment she needs it, an opportunity presents itself in an unforeseen way. Alessandro Giordano is the lying, selfish bastard who once hurt her brother’s now-wife. Emily had him pegged as bad news. But when they meet at the engagement-turned-wedding celebration, they’re both looking to escape, and the instant chemistry they have pushes them together.
Is their attraction just a diversion, or could it really be more? Is Alessandro truly capable of the selflessness committing to one woman requires? And will that really be the deal-breaker for Emily, or is it the idea of being tied down that will get in her way? The pursuit of love can devastate us, or it can liberate us — if only we can get out of our own way.
Note: This is a novella and the fourth book in a steamy contemporary romance series. This book includes mature content, and as such is not recommended for readers under 18 years of age, or those who might be offended by such material.

“You have a fire in you,”

-Alessandro

Officially my first read by the author but I do have the previous books also, which I am getting to. So, yes I am jumping ahead but I think it’ll be fine. Also, this author has been a long time follower of all my everything’s and I want to thank her for always being there and this ARC!!

This was rather short obviously being a Novella so one sitting read and it was really steamy. Started off with Emily feeling like things in life may not happen to her…the relationship and marriage type. When she attends her brother’s engagement party she runs into the infamous Alessandro and things kind of just GO from there on. From thinking of him of all the things she has heard and see her soon to be sister in law go through, she had him pegged one way and to a delightful surprise he was nothing like.

When Alessandro takes her home and doesn’t follow what she is offering a IN THE MOMENT happens where she ends up going to Italy with him on a whim. Then the ADVENTURE begins! It’s a short but sexy story and for it being my first read, it was very enjoyable. Like I said at the beginning I do have the whole series to catch up on too!!

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

You are cordially invited to the worst wedding of the century.
Sydney Evans is no stranger to hard work. It’s the one constant in her life. And with no family or friends to speak of it’s been easy to pour everything she has into her career as general counsel for Blackstone Holdings.
She wants for nothing. Until her boss offers her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All she has to do in return is marry his good-for-nothing son.
Scott Blackstone used be a party whore. Pardon, party animal. He hasn’t been that guy in a long time though. Not since he moved to Wyoming, bought a failing cattle ranch, and turned it into a profitable business.
All is good. Until a phone call from his father threatens the quiet, simple life he’s built. Marry or lose everything. And to a woman who can’t stand him, no less. Well, Scott is not going down without a fight. He’s never going back to Manhattan. Not if he can help it.

I had a feeling I’d be dreaming about cowboys tonight.

-Sydney

How hard could this be? What were three years in the grand scheme of things? Nothing.

-Sydney

Not my first ride with the author, to be honest I have read every single of her books, every time it comes out I AM ALL ABOUT IT!! So far, she is becoming one of my favorite new to me authors!

Sydney had a normal day. work work work oh and some more work. keeping busy as she has a very important role in the company. when Franklin her boss also the owner calls her in his office, shit goes from 0 to 60 real fast. she is dealt some terrible news and that wasn’t even the worst part of it either.

Fine, she was a grown woman who may not have had the best teenage-hood and was not accepting that work is going to be her real marriage, so what’s to marry Scott the party-whore and get what she always would have dreamed off along with making Franklin happy. Well she was singing a different tune when she was standing at the alter in Vegas and not only was Scott late but showed up plastered drunk. To think she had hopes even slightly that he was a changed man.

FROM THE BOOK:
“A worthy white lie. What’s few more for the greater good?”

-Scott

CHARACTERS
Sydney: mid 20s, tall, beautiful and restricted. She aches for love but has her GAME FACE on for so long in her life that no one has even tried to break through.

Even if he was given a reputation he caused in his early years, Scott is a changed man, doing something he loves and cherishes. But no one really knows that, he is still portrayed as the man-whore party asshole. He sure met his match!! And that forsaken CABIN haha as Sydney said: ‘Cabin fever is a real thing.’

This book gave me ALL. THE. FEELS. Stop in your tracks keep reading faster but also.slower because you don’t want it to end.

R E V I E W ➠ Make Me by Lani Lynn Vale


KPD Motorcycle Patrol #4

GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.
Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.
It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.
Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.
But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.
All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.
Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.
By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.

RELEASE DATE: September 10, 2019

That was because the wall of muscle was…beautiful.

-Royal

“They’re just boobs, Justice.” She laughed.
“They’re my boobs baby,” I said, cupping them. “All mine.”

Not my first read by author and she happens to be one I read before all my hoopla and bookstagramming, so I have been a many years reader of hers!! And let’s just say something about her books always keep me coming back!!

Well talk about bringing some tears and feels right at the beginning. Royal St. James is a woman with no dreams. She grew up in a household where everything had to be perfect, tight and right. As a woman now, she loves to rile up her father, so being a welder at a shop is just the way to do it. She actually enjoys doing it, until her brother get’s into some big trouble and she goes snooping. IN THE WRONG PLACES that is. That’s when she meet’s JR or Justice. What she thinks is, ISN’T and so Justice does the only thing he is really technically meant to do, but with a girl like Royal, he isn’t sure of who is doing the saving!

Characters
Royal: Mid 20s, short with curves, beautiful, very smart and loyal! She hasn’t had the best up bringing being the daughter of a Judge. What she really craves, is to be loved but incapable of returning the words.
Justice: Handsome, sexy, big and muscular, protective and funny. Saving the girl might just be his biggest deal he has ever done.

What I loved about this book is that it’s not conventional, usually the author’s book are unique in their own and again, this is one of them. The hero is still dream worthy but just so much more, where the heroine’s can vary and in this case we get a woman that is strong but soft on the inside. I LOVED Jimmy (the brother) and my heart goes out to him, but their relationship is still just like any other brother-sister duo. What also killed me inside a little is the hero, so strong yet medically broken since childhood but always pushing through in life. Actually I really liked all the side characters aside from the villein of course and stupid father of Royal. p.s. beware of the EVER SO SEXY and HOT sexy scenes!! *fanning myself*
The story line is adventurous, dangerous, funny and romantic!!

A MUST READ!!

RELEASE DATE: September 8, 2019

And sweet mother of all things Calvin Klein underwear model. He was Michelangelo perfection in his white boxer briefs. Mark Wahlberg has nothing on Gage James.

-Rocky

FROM THE BOOK:
“I like when you wear your hair up.” He whispered the words as his lips trailed down the curve of her neck, setting off shivers in their wake. “It gives me east access to do this.” His teeth bit down on the tendon of her neck, marking her like an alpha would his mate. If she wasn’t already sitting, her knees surely would’ve given out and her ass would have been on the floor, melted into a puddle of desire.

New to me Author & books, but my bookwifey #2 (Britney) told me a little about it and I needed to read it, also the BLURB caught my eye! Glad I gave it a try, wow this book! I have always had a thing for MMA fighters and in books, even better!! Gage & Rocky were something else, in the best way!!

Rocky is one bad-ass woman. She works at her family’s training gym. She is very independent, very loyal and loud! All the woman in the group are, but Rocky to me seems a little lost as in, she really just want’s to be loved. So when she meets her crush-celebrity on a night out, she is smitten and also in shock at the fact that the next time she sees’s Gage is at her work. Let the cat-and-mouse games begin. It’s rather sweet, Gage may be a big scary fighter but deep down a heart of gold and Rocky may show she has it all together but sometimes even the bad-ass girls need a hand.

They play around, building that sexual foreplay and boy, this may be a slow-burn in a sense but when it’s there IT BURNS big and bright! *sizzling* sometimes things that burn so bring, burn-out but will either tap-out before the sizzle get’s too hot?
To me this whole everything was a lot of fun to read, getting to know all the side characters, their duo and more. Fun, exciting and sexy read!!

R E V I E W ➠ The Hardest Hit by A.S. Teague



GOODREADS AMAZON [FREE IN KU] – AUTHOR WEBSITE


My friends used to tell me ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.’ Clearly they lied, because there was no way the chemistry I had with Mel could ever be left behind.
However, my children, her career, and nine hundred miles between us meant that for seven years, Melanie Holstein was the one who got away.
I was Aiden Shaw, first-round draft pick turned the best quarterback the league had ever seen. I worked hard to secure my position in football history while balancing life as a single dad. Through it all, my Vegas spitfire was never far from my mind.
And considering her best friend was now with my best friend, it was pure and utter torture.
When my career took a devastating turn, Mel was the first person at my side. I was broken and defeated, but that stubborn woman was determined to piece me back together.
I liked to pretend Mel and I were destined for greatness, but Lady Luck had never been on our side. And the tragedy that followed might have been the hardest hit of all.

RELEASE DATE: September 5, 2019

This is a NEW to me author & books but the BLURB is what caught my eye! So I was kind of going in blind as I say!!

This was a fun start, Mel and Aiden met in Vegas. And NO the ‘what happens in vegas stays in vegas’ term did not apply to Aiden because he couldn’t get enough of Mel. They spend a beautiful night together and when parted, Aiden pushed to keep Mel in his life. Mel is 8 years older than Aiden and so she feels like she should have her shit together and get this right. Something always went wrong, where Lady Luck was not on Mel’s side, ever! When Aiden is dealt some terrible news, Mel is determined to be there for him, help him through this.

This is a slow burn, friends-to-lovers romance with a twist. It is a lot more complex then it seems, in the good way of course. I feel for both of there characters and what they endure, now I am usually not a big fan of ‘older’ than Hero Heroines, so to my surprise it was refreshing. There were times she was a little over-powering for my taste but all in all I had a great time reading this and felt every single FEEL of this book!! Go find out if lady luck will finally set Mel free!!

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



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

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.

-Heroine

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.

Characters
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.

GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

Vengeance has a name, and her name is mine. 
My role is to take action against the darkest men I’ve ever come across.
To kill them one at a time. 
Until my list is complete. 
And in doing so, I’m going to use my most powerful weapon—my body. 
They ruined my life, and now it’s my turn to destroy theirs. 
Even if it means a death sentence for me, each drop of blood will be deserving. 
Each kill will be worthy of the price I may need to pay. 
My name is Isadora, and my target is the Moretti Mafia.

RELEASE DATE: September 3, 2019

“I’m a good girl, but I’ll be bad for you.”

-Isadora

He smells so good, like a man that knows he has it all. He smells of the ocean and damn hard work.

-Isadora

“You’re hiding something, but I’m not sure what it is. But I do love to solve problems, and what better way than to have you in the meantime. I like the taste of something sweet and deceiving.”

-Jasper

I’m not a nice man, Isadora, and those who disobey me don’t usually like the outcome. I have eyes and ears everywhere. Stay where you are, and be a good girl. Do you understand?

-Jasper

Not my first read by author, although it’s been a while since I have officially reviewed! This is a DARK Romance to which I chose carefully which I read, I am and am not into it if it makes sense, I read too many that turned me off of it due to them not being my style but I knew I’d be safe with this author because I am familiar wit her writing style! Here is to one BAD-ASS BOOK!

This is a POWER TO THE HEROINE type of book, she is bad-ass kick-ass and freaking amazing!! I’ll say this is the reason I trust this author when I want to read Dark Romance. Anyways, Isadora is on a one woman mission. Kill the Moretti Mafia and nothing will stand in her way, even using her body to finish the task at hand. Meaning the job she does is only for cover, the things she does is only for cover but the revenge will be for taking away the only that she loved and cared for!

FROM THE BOOK:
Vengeance comes in many forms, and in my case, it’s worth paying the ultimate sacrifice to achieve.

Characters
Isadora: Aside form having a beautiful name she is fearless, beautiful, smart and loving. From the moment she was born she was destined to do and be where she ended up. Growing up with no parents was hard and to come to understand why she did what she did, painful…so painful but Isadora lives it. She really is a perfect mix for the Dark Romance meet’s Enemy-To-Lovers heroine!
Jasper: RUTHLESS!! When you think of the mob, and imagine someone so HANDSOME, SEXY, BIG, RUGGED…he is all that and some. He really is ruthless, and his childhood did not help, BUT he was born into the world. His character is complex but soft in places, it’s rather beautiful!
All the side characters fit well and smooth, equally will play a great part! Watch out for little Heather!

The story might be DARK but it has romance well incorporated in it. Isadora and Jasper go head-to-head in many scenes and both thrilling and dark. Amazing!! I did shed a few tears, after-all this was a emotional book along with the trill. So basically all the feels. I wish there was more & after crying to the author on IG DM she informed me that I’m safe! *crisis averted* I don’t know about you but a good Dark Romance without the sexy scenes being right, isn’t one to me, so safe to say THIS IS SPOT ON even the dark scenes!

For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her … under me. Now that I had her, I wasn’t letting her go. I thought we were on the same page.
I thought we were building something great.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I’d walk away.
She was wrong.
Now it’s time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have … This Is Love.

RELEASE DATE: September 3, 2019

“He kissed me,” I tell her.
“Okay,” she says. “You’ve kissed other men.”
“Yes, but this one was different. My stomach did a thing.”

Under The Sea

FROM THE BOOK:
The second mt head hits the pillow, I’m out like a light, and he’s there, waiting for me in my dreams. His smile, his touch, everything is there, and when my phone rings, I feel like I’m in that movie Groundhog Day.

Not my first read by author and I have read the first 2 books in the series which I LOVED! I don’t know where to start with this BEAUTIFUL book! I mean the more I read the author’s book the more I fall in love not just with the writing but with all the characters, especially this series!! Hand’s down the TOP FAVORITE of mine from this author!!

This is the story of Mark & Vivienne who is the best friend of Karrie married to Matthew who is on the same hockey team ask Mark. So she appeared in the previous books and I have always loved her in them, something about her. When I realized she would be getting her own story I couldn’t wait.

About the characters:
Vivienne: She is french but living in the states and called the states her home. She is rich but also works for a new paper column that no one but her best friend knows about. She is a woman who has it all but is in pain. The memory of what she went through shaped her into the woman she is today. A no more than 4 sexual encounters or it get’s to complicated. She likes to flavor and isn’t afraid to speak her mind and be up front [my kind of woman].
Mark: Mark is the Hockey Team’s Goalie but also a business man, meaning the man is richer than God it seems. He has been making smart money decisions since day one and today he stands to have whatever he wants, and that whatever is Vivienne [the un-touchable]. Mark is from a Greek family and half Italian, so bet your ass that he is not only tall and handsome but gorgeous, sexy with a beard and a heart of gold. The “traditional” man sense. [Also MY type of man]

The story starts of with a heartbreak and all the painful feelings you can imagine. Vivienne is the receiver of this pain, again shaped her who she is today. When she run’s into Mark LITERALLY he doesn’t hesitate to ask her to out. She figures since it’s been a while for her, she would just jump on it and leave. One night with PM [Private Mark] and she thought it would be enough, their kiss was MAGICAL and their night, something only one can dream of. But she would never say that out loud, she has never felt this way before and wasn’t sure what to do. Hell she though she was dying. What’s a girl to do? Well scratch her itch and call it good!! Mark had other plans!!

The other plans Mark had only lead him to heartbreak, well heartbreak for everyone you see, PM had one thing in mind while Vivienne had another…or so she told herself at least. When push comes to shove will Vivienne be able to let go finally?

A MUST READ!
