R E V I E W ➠ Egotistical Jerk by A.K. MacBride




I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker.
He was an award-winning physician in his field of medicine.
A genius who could diagnose you with the barest of symptoms.
The best of the best.
Too bad he turned out to be an egotistical jerk.
Mere hours into my first day, I realized that the man I had idolized for years didn’t live up to the hype.
He was rude, arrogant, and totally full of… himself.
It was clear that my presence bothered him, that I was nothing more than an irritation.
So, why did I want to melt into a puddle whenever those dark eyes were trained on me?
And why didn’t I listen when my head warned my heart that he’d break it in two?
I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker, not fall in love with him.

RELEASE DATE: August 16, 2020

NEW to me author and books! Now this author is the sweetest and after reading the blurb I KNEW i had to give this a go. I was so pleasantly surprised and in love with this!

Usually you get one or the other when it comes to the medical field but in this case both hero and heroine are doctors, stubborn and each with a heart of gold that not everyone may know about. Oh Dr Sebastian Ryker you sexy handsome and swoony man, this was so much fun to watch unfold when Dr Mia Phillips flips his world and thoughts around. Love me a confident and feisty heroine that isn’t over bearing but enough to grip you in. The hero and heroine together were beyond words, something about them grabbed you in and made you want more, read faster, try to figure it out but what you got it that yes but also you got to go on for a ride that was fun, sweet, sensual, sexy, lots happening but in a good way. I don’t want to give out too much because this really is a beautiful addition to the Cocky Hero Club and I would most definitely read more by this author, if she say wants to I don’t know just give us more of Mia and Sebastian please! There wasn’t too much debacle, just enough heat and sweet, their banter, their heated looks, GAH really these two were made for one another and I had so much fun watching them realize it.

R E V I E W ➠ Any Day Now by Lani Lynn Vale




Amelia loves her good friend, Avery. So much so that she agrees to do the stupidest thing ever
A stranger photo shoot
You know the type. The photographer takes photos of two individuals. Two individuals that, until that day, have never met in their life
The moment she shows up at the photo shoot, she knows that she made a terrible decision
Why? Because the total stranger about to be in an intimate photo shoot with her is the hottest thing that’s ever walked the streets of Kilgore, Texas. If not the entire US of A.
Adam wasn’t sure why the hell he agreed to something so stupid
Call it temporary lapse of sanity
When the photographer who shot his photo for the Kilgore Police Department’s benefit calendar asked him for a favor, he couldn’t say no. Not without looking like a jerk seeing as it was benefiting the Fallen Officer Foundation that he played a rather large part in
Whatever it was that made him agree, he quickly realizes that it’s not worth it. Not when he walks into the studio and sees the massive bed with blood-red sheets dominating the middle of the room
So uncomfortable he is at the sight, he’s about to head straight out the door and not look back when she walks in.
Amelia steals his breath away with just one glance, and all of a sudden, getting this stranger into his arms with his mouth on hers sounds like the best idea ever.

RELEASE DATE: August 11, 2020

Not my first read by he author, I am a huge fan and have read a very good amount of all her books. She is also one of my very firsts reads, back in the day authors. This one the blurb really caught my eye, if you know Lani she is well known for her unique characters and story lines.

Of all the books I have been reading of Lani, this one has to be a top top favorite. This INSTA-LOVE had me wanting more, reading faster, experiencing every feeling…Adam and Amelia are the perfect character couple! This is sweet, sexy and fun too because the theme is Stranger Photo Shoot and it did not disappoint! Adam has you failing in love with him SO FAST, his alpha side, his big heart and the SWOON turn that shit up because it’s unbelievable in this story! Amelia, sweet sweet Amelia, I say that lightly because she is a HOOT. Outgoing, fun, firecracker…after all she does come from a fun family. That said, when you put these two together, you get funny laugh out loud moments, swoony make your heart melt moment and fire-y need to change sexy moments! Loved everything about this!

R E V I E W ➠ Can’t Fight It by Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black




Colton
From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same. I felt it deep in my soul that she was going to change us forever. I didn’t know how, but I knew she was important. I tried to maintain the distance between us, but it was too strong to fight.
With each passing day, I saw a future I never planned flash before my eyes—one with a fairytale ending. The only problem is that someone wanted to take that away from me, away from us. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go that easily. Hollis is family, my family, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.
Hollis
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected. I was in desperate need of a fresh start, ready for something new, but all it took was one look at those intoxicating blue eyes for me to reevaluate everything. I tried to stay detached, but something about him just called to me.
It took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man I share a living space with, but also his son, Milo. The problem is my past is not too far behind, trailing behind me and slowly catching up. When it finally does, I have a choice to make—run away, leaving them behind, or stay and fight, potentially putting them in danger. Either way, I could lose it all. (

RELEASE DATE: July 30, 2020

Not my first read by the author and i have read all of Kaylee’s books and a lot of Lacey’s as well books including every book in this series. I was SOOOO excited about this one.Ii didn’t know how knocked odd my boots I’d be with this single dad *swoon swoon swoon* just so sweet and romantic…with a little bit of suspense. 

So in book 2 we find out that the hero here Colton is the father *Que the dramatic music* and since becoming a single dad he is doing everything right! In comes the knew tenant that was supposed to be a he and she is definitely a she, a gorgeous she. While the heroine is running away from something, is she also running TO something? I loved these two, this series is a *make you want to have a baby or a daddy * either way it’s so swoony and romantic.

R E V I E W ➠ The Player Next Door by K.A. Tucker




Scarlet Reed has returned to Polson Falls, convinced that twelve years away is long enough to shed her humiliating childhood identity as the town harlot’s daughter. With a teaching job secured and an adorable fixer-upper to call home, things in her life are finally looking up.
That is, until she finds out that Shane Beckett lives next door.
Shane Beckett, the handsome and charismatic high school star quarterback who smashed her heart. The lying, cheating player who was supposed to be long gone, living the pro football dream and fooling women into thinking he’s Prince Charming. Shane Beckett, who is as attractive as ever and flashing his dimples at her as if he has done no wrong.
Scarlet makes it abundantly clear that old wounds have not been forgotten. Neighbors they may be, but friends they most certainly are not. She won’t allow herself to fall for the single father and firefighter again, no matter how many apologies he offers, how many times he rushes to her aid, or how hard he makes her heart pound.
But as she spends more time with him, she begins to fear that maybe she’s wrong. Maybe Shane has changed.
And maybe this time she’s the one playing herself—out of a chance at true happiness. 

RELEASE DATE: June 16, 2020

This is a new to me author and what caught my eye was the blurb, something i was excited to read. that said, it being a new to me, I wasn’t sure of the style of writing…it’s always works out or not when it’s a new author and can’t blame anyone when a reader can’t connect with anything regarding the book. Unfortunately i was not able to fully connect with the heroine and hero himself. It came down to the style of writing and over all characters for me. Nothing in particular just the overall. Now that said, the plot was great, little predictable but teacher romances can happen like that.  It’s a second chance, little enemy to then friends to lovers, single dad, forbidden relationship. The hero and heroine dated for a summer in HS, after having her heart straight up broken she moves away in hopes of better and for 12 years she did. i forgot to mention that heroines mother was a harlot. It’s complicated. 
the hero kind of reminds me of the everyday jock that has it all, grown up but still tendencies and actions of a young adult type. Just could not connect with them and some of their actions. the story line definitely knew what was coming for most of the book, transitions were smooth. I’ve wanted to read this author for a while now and glad i gave it a chance.

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 ➠ Catch Me When I Fall by A.L. Jackson




Sometimes trying to catch a star will light your whole world on fire….
Emily’s entire existence is wrapped up in touring with her up-and-coming country rock band Carolina George and trying to build them into a music legend. Her passionate night with a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy was the result of too much time on the road, too much tequila and combustible physical chemistry. It was never supposed to follow her into the light of day, much less threaten everything she and the band have worked so hard to create.
Royce’s night with the lead singer of Carolina George was the worst mistake of his life. He needs the band to sign on to his record label or his family will pay the price. But will his irresistible attraction to Emily destroy his carefully laid plans?
Royce’s past is littered with mistakes and heartache – will his love for Emily be just one more tragedy?

RELEASE DATE: June 1, 2020

Not my first read by the author and ot my last, AMY happens to be one of my top favorite author’s and I have read all her books. I have also read all the books in the series and want, no, need more!

What a heart-wrenching twist of fate. wow. i had to stop myself repeatedly from reading too fast because I didn’t want to miss a beat. talk about having your heart beat out of your chest feeling.
This was truly and oh-so-heartbreakingly beautiful. The hero and heroines lives so intertwined yet so far away. Neither wanted to happen what they couldn’t deny, but when the truth came out…IT. WILL. BREAK. YOU. That’s all i am going to say. Be prepared. You can assure that the hero and heroine are the type you fall in love and get so caught up with you forget that you are reading and not living through them. It’s a slow burn, but a sweet one, two souls TWO BROKEN SOULS that are meant to be but having a hard time finding their joint path…when they do, it will both break them.

R E V I E W ➠ Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young




To my siblings, Jane was a friend. A pseudo-sister, the girl we grew up with.
To me? She was everything.
Our passion consumed us.
When our world fell apart, I thought our love would be the thing that held us together.
She was the love of my life. But she abandoned me when I needed her most.
And I’ll never forgive her.
For years I’ve been planning my revenge against the people who took everything from me.
Jane won’t be an exception. I’m coming for her.
She knows it.
She says she wants to help me serve my version of justice on the people who hurt me.
I’ll let her.
She probably thinks it will save her from me.
It won’t.

RELEASE DATE: May 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be one of my firsts many moons ago. So I am very familiar with her style but HELLO was I shocken with this. I did not know that enemy-to and ANTI-HERO came from the sweet Samantha! Okay, I kind of am not suprised but it was really really good. I haven’t read her books in a while therefore this was a good shock for me. I will note that I have not read Book 1 & 2 in this series but I have read the 2.5 Book Hold On.

What captures me the most in this story is that it was so relatable that I didn’t even know I was just reading at times, the events and actions…it was…it broke my heart but I was still lusting after it. First you get hit with the before, and it’s fierce young love then you get hit with the ugly and real…and then finally the present. I don’t do spoilers and if I don’t want what I type I might blur something out…it’s really one of those books that you do NOT want the spoilers because it’s that amazing! All I will say is don’t always believe what other’s say!

Not my first read by either author, I read Audrey’s book when I first started many moons ago and Kylie wasn’t too far after that so i am familiar with their writing style and all. And yes I have loved every book I’ve read by them!

What a sweet and fun story! I was hooked from the get-go. Everything actual happening was right on spot and the rest just flowed very well. The combo of author’s here is unreal because they both are very different but when together you get the best of both worlds. I really hope we get more from the ladies!!

R E V I E W ➠ Working For It by BJ Harvey


(Cook Brothers #5)


It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming:
“I’m pregnant.”
Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn’t need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him.
Career-focused Gilly never imagined she’d be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she’s been looking for has been in her bed all along.
If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park…right?
***
Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. Working For It is Ezra Baker’s story.

RELEASE DATE: May 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author & I have read all the books in this series so I am familiar with the crew and writing style of course. I am a forever fan of BJ…she really writes sweet, sexy and funny books! This one was romantic on a whole new level!

Ezra has got to be one of my favorites in this series, I knew we’d get something else form him from the previous books but my gosh did I fall in love with him…actually with Gilli as well…not only is she strong, independent and beautiful but has the biggest heart and isn’t afraid to show her emotions. Ez is a sweetheart but in a alpha sexy way, I really REALLY LOVED HIM! This has a mixture of fun, surprise, sexy and let’s not forget this whole series has a lot of rom-com and this did not disappoint it. You get to watch two people navigate something that could have gone differently but they both chose the right path for themselves…now the question is can they overcome everything being thrown in at once?!
