R E V I E W ➠ Everything’s Better With Lisa by Lucy Eden



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Lisa Betancourt has been my neighbor for months, but I didn’t know she existed until the night she threatened me with a baseball bat. To be fair, I kinda had it coming. That was also the night my entire life changed—my biological mother passed away suddenly and mysteriously, leaving behind a surprise baby. The moment I laid eyes on CJ’s chubby face, I knew I would do anything for him. What I didn’t know was how to take care of him. Fortunately, Lisa turned out to be my salvation in more ways than one. She stepped in and changed everything. The more time I spend with her, the more I hope the change can be permanent. Unfortunately, the pressure at work and unraveling the mystery of my mother’s past makes me wonder how that could be possible…
Cole Simmons lives in the brownstone next to mine and was an insensitive jerk, or at least I thought he was until he got custody of his baby brother, who’s just as adorable as he is. As the oldest child in a big family, I couldn’t resist stepping in to help when I realized my handsome neighbor was in over his head when it came to babies, though I’ve learned the hard way that handsome men can’t always be trusted. I moved to New York to start a new life, adjust to my new normal and heal from heartbreak. Unfortunately, my heart didn’t get the memo, and the more time I spent with Cole and the impossibly sweet CJ, the more I start to wonder if Cole isn’t the only one in over his head…
This full-length novel can be read as a standalone but is the third book in the Everything’s Better series. You’ll see friends from Everything’s Better with You, Everything’s Better with Kimberly & Cherishing the Goddess. Cole & Lisa’s love story is chock full or Enemies to Lovers, Single Parent, Secret Baby (or two), Nanny (no power imbalance) & Fake Engagement goodness and is safe with NO cheating.

RELEASE DATE: November 25, 2019

Not my first read by the author and I also have read Book #1 & #2 in this series!

Cole and Lisa had one of the most fun and funny meet. It really set the mood for me for the book. This author really knows how to address the heavy life topics with a beautiful story where the characters bosom together and the romance is just so BEAUTIFUL! I will say that have tissues ready and also expect all the issues to be address with respect and accurately, that’s a huge things to me, where if there are triggers I want them to be addressed in a way that explains and processes. Aside form that this was another very sweet, fun and romantic STORY that will have you falling in LOVE with Cole and Lisa!

R E V I E W ➠ DISARM by Karina Halle



GOODREADSAMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.
Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret—a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger—from his own family.
As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

RELEASE DATE: November 19, 2019

She’s not telling me to stop. She has a war inside herself too.

Not my first read by author, and I have read Book #1 DISCRETION in this series, which I would recommend reading first and I enjoyed very much!
In this book I had a harder time connecting, I don’t know if it was the characters together or the story but it just felt off a little for me. Little disappointed since I loved Book #1 very much.

This slow-burn, taboo, enemy to lovers was not what I expected, there were lot;s of parts where I was on the edge reading but other parts where I got little lost and read off. This is a VERY SLOW-BURN or rather foreplay notion between the hero and heroine. This is where I would recommend reading Book #1 for it to really make all the sense. Lot’s of drama and suspense too. The epilogue is little short, wish there was more and like I said earlier, great read I just…felt little off for me. Not your normal plot line. I appreciate the chance to have gotten an ARC from NETGALLERY for this!

R E V I E W ➠ Blindsided by Amy Daws



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?
Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.
Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorably-freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.
Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.
However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.
Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.

RELEASE DATE: November 21, 2019

“Now ride me hard and fast, treasure. Ride me like you mean it.”

-Mac

Not my first read by author and the blurb got me on this but then she came out with the cover and HELLLLOOOO THERE!!!!! After reading some heavy books in a row it was nice to jump into a fun and sweet rom-com.

Freya, there is something so innocent and sweet but full of sass and backbone about her. I instantly fell in love with her. A woman that has put herself in a class and just living through life, when enough is enough and she wants to do something about it. That’s where Mac comes in!! Also it’s the best when Freya calls sex “the sex” haha!

Mac suggest a great idea because they are best mates and nothing can go wrong. WRONG! Everything went wrong in all the sense. When lines are blurred and crossed, are these two going to be able to hold strong? This is a whole new level of SCOTTISH talk and sexy Scottish talking!! It’s really a light-hearted read but with so much deepness to it, it touches on a lot of basic but important issues.

BEWARE OF THE CAR-WASH *smirk* and Plus size Cat PJ’s!
The sweetest HEA!

R E V I E W ➠ The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

Rita Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all? 

RELEASE DATE: November 18, 2019

“I would have moved heaven and earth, bought heaven and earth, to get you back.”

-Maxim

Not my first read by author and yes I was lucky enough to also receive the Book #1 ARC. Not to mention that I was even considered for this one, super excited and honored! I love this author!! Now I don’t want to get too much into Book 1 again because the ones that have read it understand of course and the ones who haven’t I wouldn’t suggest starting with a BOOK #2 in a duet! Just sayin’

Book #2 jumps right into the left over action, so basically I was hanging from that cliff and then still hanging until I got pulled up. INTENSE right off the bat…the love between these two just PULLS YOU RIGHT IN! The hero and heroine have a way of bringing out the best and worse of one another, in the bedroom…I seriously though my kindle was going to burst into flames. HOLY HOTNESS!! I don’t want to give out too much but this combo is fucking fantastic!

I was not ready or prepared at the beginning but then you hit the middle and on and BOOM! Twists and danger! Seriously was on the edge of my seat reading this. Not your conventional ending either, the author made sure to finish it the way it started, AH-MA-ZING!!

R E V I E W ➠ Never Enough by Kelly Elliott



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Longing to forget the pain of his wife’s death, Brock Shaw has immersed himself in the one thing that lets him escape the guilt. Bull riding. But life on the road means leaving his young son at home with his parents. They want him to give up his career and be a father to his child, but Brock needs the adrenaline to get through each day…or so he thinks.
Lincoln Pratt needs a fresh start. As a top interior designer in Atlanta, she has everything she could ever want, but she’s always at her father’s mercy. Something’s missing, and Lincoln knows she’ll only find it somewhere far away—like the rolling pastures of Hamilton, Montana, where she meets the irresistibly mysterious Brock.
In Brock Shaw, Lincoln sees the part of her that’s missing. In Lincoln Pratt, Brock sees the part of himself he thought he’d lost. But the pain of his past binds him. Can he let himself love again?

RELEASE DATE: December 10, 2019

Convo between BFF Kaylee & Lincoln
“Shut up! Do you see how hot that guy is? Like, look at him. His chest is huge!”
When I saw her wipe her mouth, I couldn’t help but laugh. “Horny much, Kaylee?” “My goodness. Save a horse and ride a Montana cowboy.”

She gave me a warmth I hadn’t experienced in a very long time. A feeling of desire that I don’t thin I’d ever experienced before.

-Brock Shaw

Not my first review by the author & she happens to be on my top favorite authors list so, I was super excited to receive this early ARC! I can’t express how much I LOVED THIS BOOK!! It had everything, enemy to lovers, sizzling romance,sassy heroine, most adorable kid, mystery, twist and the ROMANCE *sigh* not to mention a sexy and rugged cowboy!

Their first meet doesn’t really..yeah I wouldn’t call it romantic but it was equally memorable. Something about when two souls that are meant for one another meet but the brain hasn’t caught up with the memo yet. It was funny, sweet and dark. City girl meets Country Boy! There is so much going on in this bok but everything fit right and flowed smooth! You have the heroine Lincoln who is a city girl but a country girl at heart, not afraid to work and get dirty but even though she left the city to start new, she was still missing something. Then you have the hero Shaw who is beyond broken in all the ways possible. A professional bull-rider and deep deep country boy at heart. He comes with an adorable 5 year old son which I won’t say too much about because you have to read to feel him! The story line is perfect, every single chapter and scene. The side characters like the other brother’s of Shaw and Lincolns best friend Kaylee which YOU. WILL. LOVE. it’s all put together so well and perfect. Hands down my favorite COWBOY ROMANCE of the YEAR! There is so much depth in here, the meaning behind the story is heartbreaking because you have a lot of complex in it but the outcome…may be beautiful but came at a price for sure. Realistic, sexy, mysterious, enemy to lovers but also a little friends to lovers too, slow burn but sizzling and action packed!

THIS. HAS. IT. ALL.

R E V I E W ➠ Blossom In Winter by Melanie Martins



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Petra, a seventeen-year-old Dutch-American and the only heir of finance tycoon Roy Van Gatt, has always had her life rigorously planned and supervised by her strict father. From her internship at his hedge fund firm on Wall Street to her degree in economics at Columbia University, Petra is all set for a bright future in finance.
But everything falls apart when she develops a dangerous relationship with her father’s business partner and utmost confidant, Alexander Van Dieren. A Dutch nobleman, known as an unrepentant heartbreaker, twenty-three years her senior, and who is, above all else, her beloved godfather.
A twisted obsession for some, unconditional love for others, but one thing is sure: it’s a relationship that might cost them everything…

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2019

“If my father is known to have a devoted network of friends and minions at his service, I seem to be the one working the hardest to avoid his displeasure.”

New to me author and books, very appreciative to the author for my ARC! This is a dark, forbidden, erotic and age-gap romance, but so much more! This book is more reality than the fairy tale type of image. It’s raw, real, passionate and PLOT TWIST. Just when I thought I got it, I didn’t and will say that I was not expecting the outcome of the book.

This is something where the hero is not your every day type of hero, there are secrets here, little mystery, lot’s of erotic and forbidden, which if you love this will be it for you. The heroine will come off as a semiprecious girl but in all honestly when you find out the ending, it will all make sense. It’s something I am not used to ready on a normal base so it was rather refreshing and there is a book #2 coming that I will definitely be looking into. I don’t do spoilers so no more from me that hasn’t already been said in the review’s but will say that this is not a regular romance!

R E V I E W ➠ Trying To Score by Kendall Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive … Double check.
I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.
But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn’t have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.
Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?
Is me.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2019

Lipstick stains on my skin, kiss marks along my thigh and, oh fuck, on my cock. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get this visual out of my head. Not that I’d ever wanted to.
I’m gone for her–big fucking time.

Not my first read by author & I have read every single book in this amazing series!! Needing more of course I was super excited for this one too!! And am SO GLAD I got a chance to read and review this one, A MUST READ! ABSOLUTELY LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!

This is the story of Teddy and Sara, Teddy who has been in the previous books and the one I kept thinking WILL HE HAVING HIS OWN BOOK and boom, prayer answered. Something about him, young at heart and just so beautiful, handsome and sexy. Just something about him, even though he is a little wild and crazy, deep down the love her hides and has…breathtaking! Until that one time in the bathroom and a video, Teddy is kicking himself and hoping he can be spared. But no luck, Sara is the lucky lawyer who is tasked with helping Teddy out. She is determined, beautiful, smart and catching. No time for anything but her work, that focus of her’s is admirable. When the two combine it’s like putting oil and water together. What’s beautiful about this is the rawness of both the main characters.

I can safely say that this is one of my favorite’s of Kendall Ryan!!

A MUST READ!

I should have told her everything.
How much I loved her.
How much I’ve always loved her.
But I didn’t.
I couldn’t.
I just wasn’t made that way.
Instead… I claimed her.
Teased her.
Taunted her.
Worshipped her.
Until… I broke her.
My best friend.
My savior.
My girl.
From my mind to my heart, to every single bone in my body.
She owned me.
I was hers.
Every look.
Every kiss.
Every touch.
Every tear.
It was always her.
The only thing I feared more than losing her was forgetting her.
I hated how much I needed her.
She was mine.
Always and forever.
I hated her then.
But Harley Jameson was about to find out how much…
I LOVED her now.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2019

Not my first read by author and I have read Book 1 in this duet. I must say I was very curious to what was going to happen, and was so not ready for what was to come in this book!!

The angst is a killer in this one, the passion, the pain and extraordinary characters and events. Book 2 starts off with a bang just like Book 1 left off. I mean, jumps right in with the OMG’s and bickering. When everyone find’s out the secret or so said, it’s like a huge bomb goes off everywhere and to everyone. Book 2 for sure is a PAGE-TURNER!

Look out for CURVEBALL, TESTS, TEAR JERKING ACTIONS, DECEPTION….it’s really nor anything I though it would be. I don’t want to give out much from this because Book 1 is a must read then jump right into this and enjoy your heart being thrown around like a ping-pong then soothed with their love.

R E V I E W ➠ Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward


FREE on Kindle Unlimited

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.
Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.
Until one day it did.
Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.
Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.
Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.
But what I found could change everything.

RELEASE DATE: November 5, 2019

I felt like I could rule the world. At least, Griffin made me feel that way.

-Luca

Not my first read by the author’s and haha would NEVER be my last! I have read every single book that they have & the ladies are my ONE-CLICK reads!

It’s unbelievable how much I relate to Luca in the medical field department. She is a agoraphobic person and someone who eight years ago, made a huge HUGE mistake, even though the incident occurring shouldn’t have stopped her. Years later when she reads THE LETTER she want’s to kick herself in her ass because she failed, big time. Just from the first few chapters you can tell the characters personalities. Luca to me was a woman who had a hardship and it turned more into a years f building up anxiety that only got worse. Still a strong person, very genuine and sweet, and best part: outspoken. It’s just all so mysterious and familiar in the beginning….

This was such a complex story to read because in one way, you can relate very much and in another you’re so caught up in the story that you have no idea you’re sitting somewhere reading. It’s like being pulled in and out of a haze, in a good way of course. The ladies have a way of transforming you into the story that not only do you not want to leave but they always leave you wanting and needing more. It’s what I lost most about this power couple, I’m 100% sure I’d read anything from them!!

God my heart from this book, I am a serious mess and not sure I can read anything for a little while. WOW! I am crying and writing this, the best BEST ENDING SURPRISE EVER!! Actually I am writing and composing all this while enjoying the SURPRISE! It’s so beyond perfect for JUST EVERYTHING! I couldn’t recommend this book any more than I already am, GO AND READ IT! The beauty, sacrifice, beautiful souls, pain and just plain LOVE…it’s mesmerizing!!

Declan O’ Sullivan.
He came like a tornado into our lives, swept me up in his strong winds and then spit me out, leaving me broken. So beyond broken. Our love was forever, or at least that’s what I thought when he was deployed with the air force, leaving me behind with his ring on my finger. I never imagined the domino effect heartbreak it would cause instead. I thought we could overcome anything, but we couldn’t. I had to make the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life, knowing it would haunt me, forever.
Valentina Saddler.
My soft, warm bed at the end of a stressful day. My sunshine in this dark, dark world. She destroyed me, annihilated my heart and I hate her for abandoning our love like it meant nothing. Getting an invitation to her older brothers wedding, might be the way to finally face her. Get closure and answers before I can finally move on with my sorry excuse for a life.
Although it’s been twelve years a love like ours never dies. Secrets are revealed, layers are shed and the flame we thought was extinguished gets a dousing of gasoline, burning hotter than it ever has before. Can we glue the pieces of our love back together? We may not have a choice.

RELEASE DATE: November 11, 2019

Valentina Saddler and Declan O’Sullivan had their start in Saddler’s Start, the novella. And it was a whirlpool of young love and beauty, but I was so curious to what happened and happens to them, this gave me that plus so much more. I was NOT ready for this at all!! EMOTIONAL lane, don’t merge!

Valentina is a woman who yes she is strong but also very fragile, and Declan OH DECLAN. All of this was hard for me to read because I put myself in Val’s shoes and to be young, in love, with a military man…only imagine and well you get to feel it through here for sure. I say put on your seat belt and hang on, because the author takes you for a emotional, beautiful, romantic ride!
