R E V I E W ➠ Vow of Worth by Emma Renshaw


(Vow Series Book 6)


She’s always existed in someone else’s shadow.
Caroline never thought she was good enough, always believing that little voice in the back of her head.
For the first time, Caroline is determined to ignore those feelings. She’s living for herself, loving her job as a vet, making a difference. Her simple and easy life is everything she could want, except for one thing…
He’s never let anyone see beneath his carefully crafted façade.
Kiernan has always been the life of the party. But he’s tired of no one expecting more from him than a good time. He’s ready for a purpose, to do some good in the world.
From the moment he walks into Caroline’s clinic, she knows who he is. The high school crush who never had a clue she existed. His handsome face threatens to resurrect all her self-doubt. But that was the old her.
When Caroline is threatened, she knows exactly whose doorstep to turn up on. Kiernan vows to protect her but, from the beginning, it’s more than a job.
She is his purpose. He is her missing piece.
But before they can discover everything they’ve been missing, a killer may take it all from them… 

RELEASE DATE: October 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the other books in this series! This one somehow took it for me! There is something about a broken heroine and a hero that has it all but is just missing.

I can’t express enough how much I LOVED THE HEROINE in this. She was an equal amount of strong and vulnerable. Beautiful but doesn’t know it and very smart and SO SO SWEET. The hero you will love equally because he was swoony, sweet, fun and uber sexy! This is a not really second chance but the hero and heroine do know each other. Their meet cute was epic, there is this little puppy named Pepper Jack that is a little devil in disguise with big brown puppy eyes that the hero couldn’t resist. Yes, the heroine is a VET and the hero works at the SECURITY firm that is part of the series. Everything about this is appealing, from the beginning the fun and laughter to going through the pains with the heroine while her family sucker punches her verbally to the hero making her feel like the sexiest woman alive. There is danger, mystery, some best friend fun who is a romance photographer and YES the hero models and it’s the sexiest thing ever…I am pretty sure all of our dream jobs (you’ll see what I mean) That said this really took me from the start, kept me engaged and wowed me through the end!

R E V I E W ➠ Piece by Piece by Kaylee Ryan




Layla
Owen Riggins is too good to be true. The best things in life usually are. He’s good looking, generous and interested in me. Too bad someone like him and someone like me aren’t’ meant to be together
He’s used to the best things in life, and I’ve grown up with the worst. Building a better life means working hard and staying on track, not falling for some sexy suit with a brooding stare who is just passing through
Life has taught me not to trust, and even though I want him more than anything, I don’t need his charity or his love
Owen
When a friend sends me to Florida to scout out a hotel, it’s the gorgeous waitress with a shy smile and worn-out shoes I can’t take my eyes off of
Layla Massey is quiet, beautiful, and in need of a little help- even if she won’t admit it. A generous tip was meant to buy her some suitable shoes, not to buy her love. I want to earn that all on my own
I’m used to women throwing themselves at me, the name, the money… but she wants neither. It makes me want her all the more
Little by little, she opens up and piece by piece, she’s taking my heart.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE this author and have read all her books. She is a INSTA-READ for me and this series, I have loved the Novella and Book 1 and this one was equally amazing!

I want to explain that this is definitely a INSTA-LOVE. We have the hero who is the 2nd oldest of the brothers but also the quiet and thinking one. He is not a man of many words but what he says is very important and honest. The heroine is a woman that was dealt a shitty hand in life from birth due to her mother. She ran away when she turned 18 and never looked back. She is just getting by but that’s happy for her and she is proud of herself and what she does. When they meet they have no idea about one another, the hero may come off as pitying her but the way it goes is that he is just a man that when you know you know. What happens next is a fast ride but a beautiful sweet one, and a tragic event leading to a HEA. Beware the hero here is UBER-SWOONY is the only way I can describe it. I can’t wait for the next brother, Grant!

R E V I E W ➠ The Gritty Truth by Melissa Foster


(The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor #7)


Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since
Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there’s Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months
Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

RELEASE DATE: October 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author. She happens to be my top 5 favorite of authors and a very early read many moons ago. That said I have read enough of MF’s books to know that I LOVE her writing style and always look forward to her books! Also have rea d the other 6 previous books in series! This is MY FAV SERIES!

Oh my hear ton this one. I knew it was going to be emotional but I didn’t know how much. So to help out a little the hero in this is Tru’s brother from book #1. He is not only broken but lived through it. Meaning after everything both him and Tru have been through, unfortunately Quincy took a wrong turn and spend many years in his own hell.

Roni on the other hand, wow I mean she is strong, hurt, passionate, loving, smart and so sweet makes you want to blush with her. I absolutely loved both characters but Roni, she was something else. Coming from a broken home, she knows what it means to have lost. When these two get together it’s not just the chemistry but ALL THE FEELINGS! This heartbreaking story will put back and heal you, every feelings between Quincy and Roni is felt, make sure to have some tissue because it will get emotional.

R E V I E W ➠ Double Dog Dare You by Lacey Black




Quinn
One simple text message can change everything. I found that out the hard way. One minute I’m complaining about a horrible picture of a guy’s you-know-what, and the next, I’m having conversations with a stranger. A gorgeous, rebel of a man who makes my heart skip a beat and does a number on my panties.
The only problem is we’re not looking for the same things in life. I want stability and a family, while he always has his eye out for the next good time.
Royce
She may literally be the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Funny, it all started with an accidental text message. About unwanted male member photos, actually, and from that moment, I was hooked. She’s the perfect woman really, except for one tiny little flaw. She’s looking for the one thing that makes me want to run for the door. Forever.
Yet, somehow, I can’t seem to let her go. She might be the one dare I actually fail. 

RELEASE DATE: September 15, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I read the blurb to this and that’s what caught my eye. What a fun start, wrong number, dick pics, SWEATPANTS pics and wrong names, Tami with an I 😉 (you’ll understand when you read)

This was so much fun and so sweet to read. The hero is a late 30’s bachelor thinking that he really just needs that, the bachelor life. The heroine is the sweetest woman alive I swear I fell in love with her before him for sure. Their cute-meet was when the heroine texted her BFF from her new phone thinking she memorized it correctly, only she ended up texting someone else. That someone else being is our hero who played along only for a little before putting her out of her misery and telling her that she texted a stranger, but not before he declares that they are going to me BESTIES now. It was just the cutest and sweetest way they were with one another before they ended up meeting accidentally.

Lots of laughter, fun, sweetness, swooning, an adorable pup, some tequila and a zip line! It really has a lot of heart too, HIGHLY recommend!

R E V I E W ➠ Penthouse Prince by Kendall Ryan




A delicious new single dad standalone romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan!
Lexington Dane was my brother’s best friend growing up.
We did everything together.
He taught me how to throw a punch, how to change a tire…and he taught me how to kiss. I fell hard and fast, and gave him all my firsts.
I promised I’d wait for him…
But I’m done waiting, because he went off to college and never came back. He took his fancy business degree and moved to New York City, where he promptly became a real estate mogul—turning every penthouse and apartment project he touched into gold.
It’s been ten years, and now he’s back and needs a favor…someone to watch his little girl. That’s right, the cocky penthouse prince and heartbreaker extraordinaire Lexington is back with an adorable two-year-old daughter. Guess who he wants to watch her?
I’ve never been able to say no to him. I might agree to be the nanny for his precious little angel, but there’s no way in hell I’m falling for her hot-as-sin daddy.

RELEASE DATE: September 1, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read a lot of her books and love her writing style. This one was sweet, sexy and just so SEXY! The hero was every single-dad dream you can think of.

I love Kendall’s Hero’s but this one was super extra. Not only a single dad but handsome and so alpha in a sweet way, the way he melts for his daughter melts your heart. And when the heroine came in the picture it was odd at first because she stood her ground but I guess I would give in too if it was this hero. Their normal Nanny/Employer relationship blurs when the hero realizes what he missed out on by leaving the heroine so many years ago. Hiding back then from the brother and then leaving her the way he did, he truly is remorseful and it’s super sweet. I just swooned left and right with him. When they did get together it was so magical and sexy, everything they did was on point and again SWOONED all over the place. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this!

R E V I E W ➠ The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward




At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.
Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.
But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.
As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.
So, finally it was my turn.
When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.
Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.
Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.
After that night, we became friends.
He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.
But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.
Until one night we crossed the line.
Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.
I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.
I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.
He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”
Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him? 

RELEASE DATE: August 31, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read every single one of her books. I was honored to receive a ARC and review this beauty. I will say that from the title and a couple reviews I read I was a little skeptical due to me having a ‘reading block’ issue when it comes to Hero’s that are man-whores or sleep with other people, there was one of two parts where I kind of read little faster and bypassed it because I really wanted to give this a full shot and thank gosh I did because once I went over that tiny bump this book BLEW ME AWAY! This single man who comes off as rough, player and everything that the heroine hated, has one of the biggest hearts and when he held her daughter Sunny and showed her part of his heart, mine grew ten times bigger for him! This Angsty-Single-Mom SLOW BURN was the right amount of all,

Carys and Deacon from the beginning were like water and oil, one a single mother trying to make it day by the the other a man-whore who’s “entertainment” was something she would have rather not ever heard. It went from player to the connection and friendship they form, I can’t explain it but I wanted them to just be together so bad and the slow burn was almost unbearable but perfect in the best ways. I -ave to say that this book is a MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Taunting Callum by Kristen Proby


(Big Sky Royal #3)


His Royal Highness Callum Wakefield lives a carefree, luxurious life. As the King of England’s youngest son, and thus not the heir apparent, he has more freedom and less royal responsibilities. He spends his days traveling the world, indulging in the extravagance afforded by his family name. But after years of hopping from one country to the next, the place that holds the most appeal is Cunningham Falls, Montana. And the only woman on his mind is a fiery redhead with an infectious laugh
The one who hates him
Aspen Calhoun is the new owner of Drips & Sips. It’s taken her many years to find a place to belong, and she’s perfectly happy living a quiet life. Or she would be, if a certain prince would stop coming to town
Aspen and Callum shared one incredible night together two years ago before he returned to his opulent life, subsequently forgetting all about her. Ego bruised and pride wounded, Aspen doesn’t know why he’s back. And she doesn’t care. She refuses to fall for his charms again
But Callum is determined to stay in Cunningham Falls and make it up to Aspen, no matter how long it takes. Because while she was out of sight, she was most certainly not out of mind.

RELEASE DATE: August 25, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the other 2 books in this series. I gotta say that I loved each book and including this one. This is the youngest Prince and boy was he ROMANTIC & SWOONY!

This was a different kind of romance, because the hero and heroine had history before where they shared something beautiful until couple years later and well, their re-meeting does not go very well. Callum though has always thought about Aspen, but years apart and a lot of happening, got him a little confused. What I loved about these two is that they seem REAL, when things that you would think to pause and focus on, they just live and talk through. Their chemistry was sizzling yes but something real and different. Really romantic and swoony, a hard background for the heroine and Callum…he is a breath of fresh air. The bad-boy Prince minus the hoopla!

R E V I E W ➠ Drive Me Wild by Melanie Harlow




When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing
I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I’ve got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful
Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my broody exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself
For exactly one night
If only she weren’t so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying–at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel
But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince
So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go
No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.

RELEASE DATE: August 24, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read all her books. I was so excited to hear she is giving us something new, so to say I was excited to get an ARC is an understatement. Heads up, this does INVOLVE Cloverleigh Farms in ways 🙂

I am not going to lie but when this started I thought it was going to go one way but the heroine surprised me through out the beginning. I thought it was going to be another, damsel rich girl running away to start her own life and bad dirty mechanic who has to work for everything and work hard that is. But even from the beginning she turn a turn, a good turn and I was intrigued. I will say off the bat that Melanie NEVER disappoints when it comes to sexy scenes. WOW who turned up the fire?!

This was original with a twist, I loved all the characters, even the heroine got to me fast enough, the story line, the events…it’s was beautiful, cute, haunting at times and romantic! The hero was a lot more romantic than he gives himself credit for. I can’t wait for book 2, that one should be interesting!

R E V I E W ➠ Blood Of Zeus by Meredith Wild and Angel Payne


(Blood of Zeus #1)


An ancient grudge. A forbidden love
The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny
Cursed with inexplicable strength and god-like stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course
Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Nothing about her makes sense, but everything about her feels right. Especially in the deepest strands of his DNA, which are still shadows of mystery to him—a mystery Kara seems determined to uncover
She’s Hollywood royalty. She’s forbidden fruit. And he’s pretty sure she could be the answer to everything.

RELEASE DATE: August 25, 2020

…I realize that I’m not breathing. There is something bizarre and forbidden and different about Kara Valari. But something warm and familiar and right too. So damn right…

-Max

Not my first read by both authors, though Angel I have not read in a very long time. Meredith’s books I’ve been in love with since my very first reads many moons ago so naturally I was excited to be able to try my FIRST PARANORMAL ROMANCE so that also got me excited. I really always wanted to try it and couldn’t think of a better author duo to dive into.

Not my first read by both author’s, I have read all of Meredith’s books and Angel Payne’s it’s been a while since I’ve read one of her books. WHAT A POWER COMBO they both are. This is my FIRST PARANORMAL romance though, and I mean REALLY FIRST…I’ve always wanted to try it and here I am. IN LOVE WITH THIS from the first page. Now, I don’t know what’s right or wrong or normal or not when it comes to this but from what I’ve read, I liked it ALL.

Professor Maximus is a man that has lived always wondering…always wondering, what happened, why him, what he is…what’s the truth?! Always in the back of his head but he found himself lost and able in books. Something he couldn’t hurt, and that was structured..with a happy ending. That’s all until Kara walks into his course. He isn’t sure what the pull is or fascination. When Kara walks into the course Maximus Kane teaches, she keeps to the back…better that way. Now this is where the part of I am not sure whats right how to word it but Kara is a Demon and she can sense and feel people, but Maximus gives off something else, something unknown to her but the pull is too strong to not want to explore it.

I don’t want to get into detail of the book because I still think you need to have that excitement I felt reading it. But I want to say since this is my first time reading paranormal, I don’t know if it’s the ladies and it was heavy on the Romance (which I love) but gosh, I couldn’t put it down. The Demon and her side of the family, hell, god like creature and so forth really just worked for me in this. This is a cliffy and well I’ll just be hanging over here waiting for Book #2 which I will be anticipating very much! So happy I gave this a try!
