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



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

With the campaign over, a new devious challenge awaits.
 
I thought the toughest part was behind us. Stupid me. Now I have to live with the consequences of winning, some that make me regret ever stepping foot in this city. Day one in office I learn of the president’s true plan, one so manipulative I can’t allow it to come to fruition. But with zero allies to call on, I’ll need to work with my enemies to stand a chance at stopping him.
 
At least I have Trey, even if our scorching-hot affair can only happen in secret. Until the best part of my new life makes his own deal with a devil, I’m forced to make a choice. I can’t have it all in this power game they’ve woven, and watching me flounder is just part of their sick fun. Or can I play the game, change the rules, and have everything in the end?
 
Too bad for me, luck has never been on my side. It’s sink or swim here in DC, and I’m the idiot wearing cement shoes to the party.

*Power Twist is the SECOND book in the five-book Power Play series offering more twists, turns and HEAT. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

RELEASE DATE: February 18, 2020

This pull, her smell, her voice–everything about her calls to me.

-Trey

Not my first read by the author and I am lucky enough to have already read Book #1 and have been hanging on this cliff for not too long, love love love anything Kennedy books so, let’s just say that I was stoked to receive Book #2 this early! I would like to say at this junction that KYLE needs to be killed off, pushed, ran over, eaten by sharks…any of those above. Sneaky, slimy little shits!

Randi our heroine keeps her head held high, after all she came this far, but she is not out of the woods yet, the worst has only become, from glares to talks behind back and much more. This book will test our heroine in the best ways possible…all while having to fight her own will and heart for Trey. It’s heart breaking and empowering this whole book, but I was reading fast trying to get to…well I don’t know not an end but somewhere to know what’s going to happen, when and who…the tight leash Randi is being held in all this…is EXPLOSIVE…there is only a woman can take so much! It’s a slow burn of all slow burns…painfully you will feel each with her. But this girl, this woman who has faught her whole life has some fight still left in her…Kyle she is coming for you.

This is a thriller I tell you, political romance never usually kept me interested until this series. The plot, the words, the characters, danger, suspense and romance…it’s a perfect combo. I will be hanging here again on the cliff, waiting for Book #3 because this one almost killed me….the ending will leave you guessing…

THE LEGEND TRILOGY

R E V I E W ➠ Come Back For Me by Corinne Michaels



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.
No names.
No promises.
Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.

In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.

When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I’ve fought to forget.

And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.

Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again. . . 

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

Night after night I would replay it in my head, dreaming of my angel who came down from heaven, making me want to keep fighting.

-Connor

Not my first read by the author, she actually is one of my very first reads. When I say that I mean, I started reading Romance back in 2010/2011 and so her books even many moons ago have been a favorite of mine. This I was super excited from the moment I read the blurb and knowing Corinee’s style, eeekkk I was giddy!

What a ride this was, I was not prepared for the emotional and heartbreaking in the beginning, then when you think you’re slightly thinking you got this..BAM, another secret comes out and you get sidetracked. This had it all, romance, betrayal, mystery, little bit of suspense, heat and so much cuteness. Again, I never do give spoilers and therefore will not say too much but this will bring it all out in you. The heroine and hero meet and have one of the most magical night together, what happens after that is…un-explainable, but I will say that you will lose yourself in this and LIVE IT!! Watch out for that #bookhangover

R E V I E W ➠ Biker Beloved by Audrey Carlan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

The day I found out I was going to be a father was the scariest, most shocking moment of my life. Worse, my brand new baby girl was dropped off in the arms of my motorcycle club, abandoned by her mother while I was fighting in Afghanistan. Of course, I did what I had to do, and returned home as soon as possible. At this point in my life, women were the last thing on my mind. I could easily pick up one at the bar or partake of the many club girls vying for The Pride’s attention.
Then she entered my sights.
Anya Markova.
It was her eyes I noticed first. Bright blue and haunted. They spoke of a sadness I wanted nothing more than to whisk away. My first attempt at wooing her didn’t go well. Anya wasn’t the type of girl I could just pick up. She was the type I’d need to court…relentlessly.
When I found out Anya was my daughter’s much-admired ballet teacher, I knew exactly what I had to do—and I wasn’t above using my daughter’s love of her new teacher to make it happen. Because throughout my years in the club, serving my country, traveling the world, I’d never met a woman who made my soul sigh the way she did.
Now, I’ll stop at nothing to make this stunning ballerina my old lady.

RELEASE DATE: December 30, 2019

“You curse a lot.”
I smiled wide. “Yeah, babe. Maybe I need to posh prima ballerina to help me cure me of my nasty habit.”

Not my first read by author, she is one of my very early reads. That said I also have read Book #1 in this series and LOVED IT. They are on the shorter side but packed with everything you need. I just needed more, gah! SWOON & ALPHA on this one. Also you get a little of this in Book #1 and I would recommend reading that first but you can read this as is, just would ruin the first part for yourself.

Anya and Whip are polar opposite. One if a prima ballerina turned teacher and the other a former Military current biker badass. They first meet at Whip’s bar and from there on, he can’t get her out of his head. Fast forward to a few days and bam they meet again and it’s then Whip realizes who Mrs. M his daughter has been calling, is.

Whip is handsome,, rough and so beautiful with his daughter. He isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind and knows what he wants and goes after it. Anya on the other hand has always lived under her mother’s eye where she was prepped to be the next world ballerina, therefore she doesn’t have a lot of experience. So when you put those two together, it’s so polar opposite that it is BEYOND BEAUTIFUL.

R E V I E W ➠ Always Mine by Kennedy Fox



GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

College parties, beer, and one-night stands—that was my life.

Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no one’s asking, then I’m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I can’t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She would’ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasn’t looking to get thrown into jail.

In a twist of fate, we’re reunited, except she’s no longer underage but still equally off-limits. After ignoring her relentless advances, she starts to wear me down. I only have so much willpower when she’s around, running her smart mouth and showing off her impeccable dance moves.

Just when my restraint starts to crumble, my poor choices finally catch up with me, putting us both in danger.

There’s no easy way to explain why I betrayed her, but I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even if it means breaking her heart. 

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

Not my first read by the ladies & so far I have been trying to keep up with every book they put out since I started reading them. This one is a duet, the ladies are known for this. So, you know what that means!

The start of this is fast and also dies fast! In the end, I for one am glad that Maddie came to her senses and spoke up! And Liam, you little shit…can we please smack him for being too harsh!! Also this setting is when Maddie is very young and you get a glimpse of the young previous duo’s characters too. That said, I hope by now everyone that really follows my reviews understands that I have one main trigger and one trope I can’t seem to get into reading. This doesn’t have a trigger but it is more towards the YA romance and that’s just not for me. It’s beautifully written I just personally don’t enjoy that style.

When a year passes Maddie and Liam run into each other again and it gets hot, as in the arguing type of hot. Maddie is a strong young woman and want’s to for once in her life do what she want’s not what she is told. (she is also young and wild too) And Liam well he is the bad boy from the start who likes to party, have fun and a different woman each weekend, even if he couldn’t stop thinking about the girl who almost gave him her virginity, he knows she is way off limits even at her age now.

They both play a dangerous game of cat and mouse and Maddie is very good at it, leaving Liam to want to throttle her as well as fuck her. So there is that! It’s cute she calls him HULK and is a feisty little tiger that Liam doesn’t know how to tame. Maddie is the youngest in the group and of course she is Lennon’s little sister so if you’ve read the previous books, you get a gimps of her. She definitely knows how to be a bad girl but also a young woman with dreams and hopes and hurt too. Deep down this is a very EMOTIONAL book with some suspense, mystery and danger. There is a lot you will not expect to happen and I teared up at a few scenes, I just aside me having an issue with Maddie being young and immature because well she is young can’t blame her, I felt for her through it all.

NEW to me author and books! First of I want to say that this author is the sweetest human being alive!! That said me going into this was like having a blindfold while you’re reading!

R E V I E W ➠ The Trouble With Gravity by K.K. Allen



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Kai’s life is a series of choreographed steps, each one shielding her from the tragic memories of her past. Audition, dance, paycheck, repeat. It’s a broken record, but it’s what keeps her world spinning.
When a tall mysterious stranger zooms into her life, effectively shattering her tightly woven cocoon, her safe and secure world quickly begins to unravel.
Sebastian’s theater production is a sinking ship. To add insult to injury he’s obligated to give it one final run.
The mission is simple—salvage what he can before they all go down with the wreckage.
But first he needs to convince the woman who despises him, despite her darkest fears, to join the cast.
Without her, his past will undoubtedly destroy his future. But with her… he may be opening himself up to more of a challenge than he bargained for.

RELEASE DATE: January 2, 2020

Not my first read by the author & every book I have read so far I have loved. This is a little outside of my reading zone because of the profession the hero and heroine are in. She is a dancer and he is a musician/producer, it’s definitely unusual (for my reading style) but in a good way. Definitely lot’s of angst and enemy-to-lovers which happens to be my top favorite tropes. I will warn you that the beginning will shatter your heart a little bit 😦 Oh Kai!

The way Kai & Sebastian met is..haha priceless, involving a motorcycle, sexy man on it & a puddle. Oh and of course a very important audition! So how it truly starts is that Kai is a dancer/actress and she gets an amazing opportunity to perform on Broadway, only if she knew who the producer was…she might have thought twice about this. Sebastian is a man who really enjoys riling up the pretty up-tight girls, being a musician he is sexy, talented and broken, but that last part no one needs to know.

This story has a “just like the play” feel. Meaning, the play that she is dancing out is kind of playing out in real life except it’s with 2 men and one woman (her) and you’ll understand what I mean once you start reading. (NO it’s not a triangle, calm!) But it is a CAT & MOUSE game that Kai & Sebastian are playing, a very sexy long foreplay. I mean the man is infuriating but also want to jump him. *sigh* I don’t want to say too much because honestly well I don’t do spoilers and also this book from beginning to start will have you hooked. The characters are fantastic, the story line fits and the transitions, SMOOTH! You get both POV’s and a very unexpected read for me, that slight skepticism at the beginning because of the professions changed really fast & I couldn’t have enough!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Gabriel’s Promise by Sylvain Reynard



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

When Gabriel and Julia Emerson first lay eyes on their newborn daughter, Clare, they realize life as they know it will never be the same. Gabriel has vowed to be a good father when he suddenly receives an invitation to give a series of lectures in Edinburgh, Scotland–an opportunity of high prestige–but that would mean leaving his wife and newborn child in Boston. Hesitant to bring it up, he keeps the opportunity from Julia as long as he can, not knowing she has a secret of her own. When a frightening situation arises that threatens to break their new family apart, both parents must make sacrifices. With the family in danger, the looming question remains: Will Gabriel pursue his lectureship in Edinburgh, leaving Julia and Clare unprotected in Boston, or will he abandon the chance of a lifetime in order to ensure his family’s safety?

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

“Thy love is better than wine,” he whispered in the darkness. “I’ll never get over my desire for you.”

Not my first read by the author & will not be the last. She was one of my first reads waaay back many moons ago and I have loved this series since the first few pages of Book #1 that said I DID NOT WANT TO READ THIS BOOK, why? Because if I do then it’s truly over, over for this series and I wasn’t ready to let it go haha!! It was a struggle! Also, this is Book #4 in a series and can not be read as a stand alone, you will ruin the series by reading this first, I’m only saying it because enough people I know have.

Alright, this starts of with you crying because it’s so so so sweet! The Professor is magical and sweet and just EVERYTHING! I personally don’t want to say why in my review because I think it would ruin the whole series too much, just know that the beginning of this is based on another being and it super sweet will melt your heart away! But as always nothing given comes without a price. For Mr & Mrs. Emerson this comes in a form of an e-mail. You get the old professor as well as the now new professor, same old beautiful, smart sassy and funny Julia (his Beatrice).

This book contains the previous book characters, some new and a lot of mystery, suspense and romance and as always the most important which the careers of them both, curve balls and hurtle to overcome this time….oh and SEXY scenes, mmmhm yes please! It’s catching, keeps you going and the words, this author, if you’ve read her you know that every word of hers in well thought of and beautiful. To say that this killed me, is an understatement because again, I didn’t want it to end. Just wait till you get the familiarity along with the new, you’ll want to read faster! What a beautiful ending…wish it could go on forever but for now, farewell one of my favorite hero & heroine!!
Little warning: watch out for Cecilia *insert eye roll*

R E V I E W ➠ Skye by Kelsie Rae


(Signature Sweethearts #8)

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Skye
Walking down the aisle toward my arch enemy wasn’t exactly what I was picturing when I planned out my dream wedding as a little kid. 
However, as I take in his chiseled jaw and sexy smirk, I remember why I agreed to this sham of a marriage.
It’s because I’m a glutton for punishment and love a good underdog story, and the more I get to know Liam, the more I can see that he’s exactly that.
The underdog.
I just hope I’m not wrong about him.

Liam
Marriage is a load of crap and my dad knows it, which is why he insisted I find a wife if I ever wanted to touch my inheritance.
Little does he know, I don’t have a problem getting my hands dirty in order to get what I want. And if I have to use my little brother’s nanny to prove it, I will.
Besides, the girl drives me insane. It’s not like we have anything in common other than our mutual disdain for each other.
This’ll be a walk in the park.
I hope. 

RELEASE DATE: January 13, 2019

Not my first read by the author and the previous one’s I have read I have liked very much so, this one was right up my FAV alley because I love a good enemy-to-lovers romance!!

Sky is a younger woman who is a nanny to an adorable little man, who’s father is a very wealthy and well known man. When one day they get home and a unknown vehicle is parked in the driveway, Skye hopes it’s not the asshole-playboy older brother Liam. Sadly, it was him. Things only heat up between them from then on.

When Skye loses her mind and agree’s to a FAKE MARRIAGE to Liam, she has no idea that his intentions are anything but good. Liam, always being a man who is misunderstood and not listened to and trapped under his father, he will do anything to be free of it all. Even if it means stepping over the “nanny” and his little brother. After all, all his life his father has pegged him for a loser and low life.

But, when his little lie turns into the biggest one yet…will he lose it all?

This story is fantastic because the heroine is strong, firm, smart-mouthed and gorgeous, she is still vulnerable enough to want to be needed. Liam may be a little shit and mean at times, deep down he has his reasons and doesn’t know any better because he’s been like that…always. You get bickering, sexy moments, sweet uber SWOON moments and heartfelt scenes. Would highly recommend this one!

GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—I.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away. It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain. The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity. And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

“…the moment his hand left my skin, I felt like my soul did, too.”

-Row

This is not my first read by author, she happens to be one of my favorites and I have read very very many books by her. This is a new-ish series Book #1 meaning there is a SWAT 1.0 and this is the 2nd generation. To say that I wasn’t surprised it was going to rock, I JUST KNEW IT. Lani has away of writing books simple yet with so much that at the end you’ll want to read all her books because as same as they might come off, they are very different each book in the series with new things, problems, and character ways. It’s really fantastic, that combined with her witting and words…gold!

This is really a sweet story, a realistic and to heart. We have the heroine Rowen who is the daughter of a police officer and the hero Dex who is a police office in the same force as Row’s dad. They run into each other after a rather not so cool incident that occurred to Row at the end of her internship, see she just graduated law school and finished her first year. For good reasons and some dangerous, she moves back home and away from the craziness, only to end up moving next to the sexy (I’ve had a crush on him for a long time) Dex. It’s starts of as a slow burn but when it’s lit, bot does it burn and burn hot! It’s a sweet and just so realistic kind of burn, the kind that exists in real life. Row is a upfront and honest person, and Dex appreciates that very much. So much happening in this book, lot’s of fun scenes to keep you engaged and of course little bit of danger. Looking forward to more in this 2.0 Series!

A MUST READ!
