GOODREADSAMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.
Before she owned me.
Hated Me.
Needed me.
Before I hated her…
Things were simple.
We had an understanding.
Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.
Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.
I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.
She was mine.
Always had been.
Always would be.
Nothing altered that.
Not how much I hated her.
Not how much she hated me.
Especially, not how much I hated…
That I LOVED her.

RELEASE DATE: September 17, 2019

I wish I could say I learned my lesson that night, I didn’t. Not in the least. What happened next proved that theory.

-Jackson

Not my first read by author and I have to say throwing myself into a cliffhanger is probably not a wise idea but here I am. This is a due therefore I am ready for it but also am not ready for it! *face palm*

Harley has been fighting with Jackson since they were little kids. Always competing, always fighting…hating each other. After all Harley was the biker princess…her father THE Creed Jameson! Through all the teenage years, there was always something between them two, even during their first kiss for one another with one another, it was fun reading for sure. But not all things can stay innocent and fun…sometimes you have to grow up. In their case, it comes a lot sooner then expected!

This will take you on a journey of two people who have been around one another, been through everything and back with one another…yet when it came down to the needy giddy…they couldn’t figure out how to make this thing called life work. I really enjoyed the younger years flash backs…the older they got the more they are trying to realize for one another. Like I said this takes you on a journey and all I can say is…HANG ON! Also #CLIFFHANGER alert….i mean it about killed me, so prepare! I can’t wait till November for Book 2!

R E V I E W ➠ Forever My Saint by Monica James



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

All hope was lost until Zoey Hennessy walked back into my world, shaking it up beyond repair when she uttered two simple words.
He’s alive.
She speaks of her brother, my Saint, the man who lost everything to set me free.
I believed he was dead. I saw it with my own two eyes. But when Zoey proves he’s alive and being held captive by a monster, I know what I have to do.
It’s time I saved him.
The plan is dangerous, and there are no guarantees I will survive. But if this nightmare has taught me one thing, it’s that I don’t cower in fear. I am a woman hell-bent on getting back the man she loves, and nothing, no one will stand in my way.
However, what I uncover can only be described as hell on earth. The darkness has finally won, and Saint is lost to me forever.
Or so I thought.
Aleksei Popov is anything but a hero, yet in this story—he’s mine. Everything I believed in is about to be turned upside down, and with freedom within my grasp, I wonder how far I will go, and who I will sacrifice in order to set myself free.

“You once said my demons dance with yours. And you’re right. They always have. Out love wasn’t perfect, but it was ours. And it was worth every single imperfect moment. You are worthy of life, Saint…

-Forever My Saint

Not my first read by author and I have been following (reading) all the books in this trilogy!! To say I have been waiting for this since probably middle of the first book is pretty accurate haha! Glad I am finally here, with that said I will RECOMMEND you read Book 1 and 2 before!

I want to touch base on book 1 and 2, I have full reviews of them of course but will say that I kind of just WENT FOR IT when i first signed up for book 1 thinking we will see…hell not even in the middle of it I KNEW I HAD TO read all the rest, so it’s been a game of I know this will be amazing but I also know there are 3 books to it. IT was worth it all the way! The first one kind of eases you into it in a way then book 2 pretty much threw you around like being stuck in a hurricane. FANTASTIC!

Book 3- well, I don’t really know where to begin honestly without giving too much away since it is a trilogy. It starts off where Book 2 left I will say that, at the end of Book 2 there was a huge BOOM and a hint then you come back to the heroine trying to go off a hunch to reveal the truth. A truth that is very crucial to her. The rest of the books you think will be all flowers and ends up being roses with thorns. It’s beautiful but does tear your heart out and bring out all the emotions for an ending that will have you feeling staggering and happy, and sad, and just want to re-read the entire series now that all three are out! Which by the way IS GOING TO HAPPEN to me at least! A MUST READ!

They warned me not to take this job.
They said you were ruthless, impossible to please…
I said I was better than them.
I wouldn’t fall for your charm, your arrogance, or how sexy you fill out that suit.
I wouldn’t fall for your deep brown eyes or the way that muscle moves in your square jaw when you’re pissed.

I said I could resist you.
I was wrong…

Why didn’t anyone tell me how insanely hot this devil is?

-Raquel

“I want to sleep with you.”
Her brow quirks, and a naughty smile curls her lips. “Can we do more than sleep?”
“You said I’m the devil, right?”
“So I’ve heard.”

I catch her bare ankle, pulling her closer. “Then definitely.”

Not my first read by author and will probably never be the last hehe. I have loved Tia’s books for a while now and she quickly became a top favorite author of mine! I may or may not have screamed when I got the ARC, gah! I love anything by Tia so don’t hold it against me!! What a start, jumps right in the line of duty so to speak. My heart was racing.

When Raquel “Rocky” decided what to do with her life after grad-school, she hopped right on the same train as her sister. Work wise that is. Her first day not only does her new boss she was warned of insult her but also is mean. They called him THE DEVIL and to her recollection that suits him just fine. Few days into work and they managed to spew off hate at each other, ignoring the sign that says otherwise. The chemistry between Patton and Raquel is undeniable, even the co-workers notice. One company picnic changes it all!

Characters
Raquel: She is so strong, sensitive, upfront and loving. Beside the fact of being gorgeous. Will do anything for her sister. When I say STRONG i mean STRONG, even after losing her parents.
Patton: Sexy, smart, handsome, caring the weight of the world on his shoulders, rugged, mean…but a heart of gold! Former Military, can’t get over what happened therefore pushes himself on to helping his brothers.

This was a sexy, addictive, action-packed, fun and enjoyable story! Little bit of fun, lot’s of enemy-to-lovers and SIZZLING! Rocky and Patton are the perfect couple, their chemistry is off the charts. The story falls in line and as always Tia’s writing needs no words but amazing! I will have to say that at one point I was not too sure about Rocky’s sister BUT see it through because it will make full sense at the end. And what a beautiful HEA! *swoon* Watch out ladies PATTON is the new Devil!

Lot’s of suspense, adventurous, secrets, swooning and romance. This is a perfect example of all of the above. AND an Alpha hero with a FEMALE bodyguard!! The writing was smooth, transitions clean and every character was connected and fun to read about. This is a MUST READ!!

R E V I E W ➠ Wylde Fire by Sarah Robinson



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Sam Wylde is ready to prove he’s more than just the privileged son of a wealthy Southern dynasty.
Wyldefire Whiskey is poised to take Nashville by storm—and with any luck, overshadow the scandal of his cheating ex-girlfriend marrying his brother. The only problem? This gruff country boy has no idea how to throw a launch party that will get people talking.
The answer to everything might just be Holly Glen.
A party wrapped up in one tiny woman, Holly is tattooed, tempting, and exactly the event planner Sam needs to liven up his brand—and his life. He can give her what she needs, too.
All it will take is a ring on her finger.
Falling in real love with his fake wife was not part of the plan—but one shot of Holly isn’t going to be enough.

He needed to kiss her. Every part of his whiskey-filled brain begged for it, and yet, something kept him from moving farther.

-Sam

STEVE

“You’re quite convincing.” Sam chuckled. “It’s a gift.”
“Your tongue certainly is.” Holly winked.

Not my first read by author & heck the blurb alone caught my eye and then you have that sexy cover too!

What an interesting BOOM to this book. Starts off with the best meet between Holly and Sam that leads to an amazing opportunity for Holly which leads to the craziest yet most efficient by Sam. This really kicks of with a bang and continues on through out the story. Holly has had a crush on Sam since high school and Sam is trying to figure out if he’s truly over the fact that his brother and ex-girlfriend are getting married….so all the crazy ideas come out. From the both of them.

Characters
Sam: tall dark and handsome, hard worker, cowboy, sex in a suit, very smart and bossy.
Holly: quirky in the best ways, bold, smart, fun and gorgeous!

This is rather a fast pace happening, in a good way that is. Sam and Holly kind of play around with one another but don’t deny their feelings, questions yet but deny, noooo that’s why the sexy scenes are sizzling steamy! But old wounds never really heel and when an incident re-opens that for Sam, will he be able to look past the hurt and realize what REALLY happened?

This is definitely a fun and exciting read, something new-ish for me and I rather enjoyed it very much. The way the hero and heroine were, their chemistry off the charts and behavior to one another, loved it!! The hero is an interesting one because he is a little country with all the sexiness from it and very much a sexy suit as well, great combo if you ask me! Will look forward to more from author and this series!

Not hearing from him was only the first in a long line of hope-shattering, confidence-busting blows. Ten months later, Harper is done with men and done with LA. She pulls up her big-girl panties and heads home to Cape Cod to start over.
On the surface, interior designer Gavin Wheeler has it all: a successful business, a loving family, and a close-knit group of friends. But Gavin once endured a heartbreak so painful, he was sure he’d never feel anything for a woman again. A chance encounter at a music festival with a gorgeous, down-to-earth blonde proved him wrong, but when morning came, the woman who made him crave more was gone.
A serendipitous evening reunites Harper with her devastatingly delicious one-night stand, and the connection is just as intense as she remembered. Harper’s life is too unsettled for a relationship, but Gavin is determined to help her find her way, especially if it leads straight to his heart. Moonlight conversations lead to steamy kisses, and as romance blooms, it stirs a love too real to deny. But when Gavin’s past collides with the life they’re building, it has the power to ruin everything.

GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

The first time I met Oliver Tanner he was five years old.
I was four.
That day he was entrusted to my keep.
He was as large and loud as a church mouse.
That day I taught him how fireflies were magic with the persistence of a person.
That’s what I loved about them.
No matter how far they strayed,
they remembered where they came from and who their family was.

After high school, he joined the army and left Knox Ridge.

Years later, the town had changed.
My dreams were shattered.
We had nothing left.
I had forgotten all about the magic of the fireflies.
Until he came back to town.
Everything about him was comforting.
He brought some light to my darkness,
But I knew the light could only last for so long.
Fireflies only stay for the summer.
He had outgrown our small town.
It was time for me to stop chasing fireflies.

Don’t miss out on this stunning, second-chance friends to lovers romance.

I finally recognize her. Kaitlynn. I hold my breath when she smiles at me.

-Oliver

Not my first read by the author, I have already read this from the Cards Of Love collection but now it states there is more and it’s been edited. So I was excited to see it all!
This is a captivating and beautiful story! The author has a way with words that draws you in and you forget where you are. One of the perfect second-chance friends-to-lovers books!!

Kaitlynn  and Oliver has know each other since they were five years old. She always seemed to be very protective of Oliver, even if she was younger. When they started growing up, things changed of course. Olive did not like a girl fighting for him, kids grow up and shift and drift apart. It’s a story of a girl who had a mom and dad and a loving home and a boy who had a broken family. Beautiful and painful all in the same. Little Kit Kat and Ollie-pop!

As they grow up there are various stories at various times. Different life achievements and incidents…it’s quiet exciting reading about them all. It’s a very long FRIENDZONE situation between the two, always wrong timing, wrong place…it seems even after 12 years when are back in the same place things can’t seem to fall into place. Are they going to be able to use the background they have as good and finally make it?

Captivating shorter read! Lot’s happening but will keep you on your toes! Beautiful story!!
