R E V I E W ➠ Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward




My love story all started with a letter.
Only it wasn’t from the man I’d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter.  A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell who’d written to the magazine that I worked for.
You see, once a year, my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didn’t start up again for months.
So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmless…so I thought. Until one day I took things too far.
While anonymously granting yet another of Birdie’s wishes, I got a look at her father. Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father. 
I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldn’t help myself.  I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally.
Like showing up on their doorstep.

But I wouldn’t mind climbing that man like a tree.

-Sadie

Not my first read by the author’s and by gosh this one took my heart! It gripped me from the beginning, kept me on the whole time. I read slower because I didn’t want it to end. It was heart wrenching and beautiful, with some twists that will make you go OOh. Loved every page of this!

I will not dive too much into this but give you the grist because this experience is worth taking. The heroine Sadie is w magazine journalist with various columns that she takes care of and writes. The hero is a business owner of a successful restaurant. These two aren’t who you will fall in love first with, Birdie is who will capture your heart, then you get thrown into a side dog business, little white lies, big dogs, butterflies, letters and mystery! The way the hero and heroine actually meet is unconventional but fun, the mystery behind everything will pull at your heartstrings. The outcome of the story line will have you gasping because ugh I can’t say too much but I was surprised and happy and excited and nervous all in one. It’s beautifully put together with so much heart!

I would HIGHLY recommend this read!

R E V I E W ➠ Wild Fire by Kristen Ashley


(Chaos #6.5)


The Chaos Motorcycle Club has won its war. But not every brother rode into the sunset with his woman on the back of his bike.
Chaos returns with the story of Dutch Black, a man whose father was the moral compass of the Club, until he was murdered. And the man who raised Dutch protected the Club at all costs. That combination is the man Dutch is intent on becoming.
It’s also the man that Dutch is going to go all out to give to his woman.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

RELEASE DATE: September 22, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be my 3rd read ever many moons ago. I fell in love with this series and Kristen’s writing so I love her work!

Okay, at the very very beginning I was little skeptical of the heroine and you’ll see why but I gotta say that changed so quick and I absolutely udderly love the hero in this I’ll explain why but I fell in love with Georgiana just in love. Now the reason why I love this Hero Dutch because he is the son of Graham Black who unfortunately got killed when he was five and you met him in the Chaos Series, so when I saw this i about screamed i always wondered what will happen. I also have to say that this is a first time a NOVELLA made it in my TOP 2020 MUST READ.  Also good news but Jagger his brother gets a story too so happy days!

Okay so Jag asks Dutch for a favor, to go pick up his on/off girl’s sister from the airport because they both were stuck doing other stuff. Reluctantly Duck does him a solid. But he was no prepared for a woman that had a LONG AF opinion on overhead baggage bins. Looking back now that was hilarious and overly dramatic. That said because I don’t want to ruin this shorter story and will say that to me I wouldn’t suggest reading it alone, the Chaos series is something else on its own. But if you must this gives you enough information to go by. THAT said, this really shows when 2 characters are so many to be, that your heart flourishes with them. I loved their banner, their honestly, their fucking amazing connection and mostly because our heroine here is a very confident curvy gorgeous woman that the hero admires throughout. It’s sweet, fun, romantic, suspenseful, mystery, action and SO ROMANTIC! The heart on this level 15!! *sigh happily* because I already want to re read and have more please!!!!!

R E V I E W ➠ Tempted by Love by Melissa Foster


(The Steeles at Silver Island #1)


Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go
Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does
As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

RELEASE DATE: September 9, 2020

First off MF is not new to me in any way. She’s been one of my very first many moons ago and I’ve read enough of her books to be filly invested. That said, I was scared to read this because I just had a feeling it was going to be very emotional. Once I dived it I couldn’t stop, beware right away that you probably want to have tissue near because I cried my little eyes out. What a heartbreaking story of two people who have over come so much differently yet same pain.

The heroine is a single mom not only kind of starting over but more importantly, starting over after not only her heart was broken but for her daughter. To be with a man that did that to her and her child, BROKE MY HEART. The hero, my gosh the hero I loved through and through, he wasn’t broken but u fixable, every time he ran from the heroines little daughter my heart was torn, when I found out his past and to why he is the way he is NO ONE should ever suffer through that. The pain he endured is unimaginable, yet he was still living day by day, maybe not so much living but alive and taking it day by day. When these two collided it’s been a year and more in the making. Watching little Hadley with her Dock (Hero’s name is Jack but the man he took care of called him Jock for the hecks of it and it kept in honor of him) but little Hadley the heroines daughter calls him Dock. It’s the sweetest thing in the world. The fun part about all this is that both hero and heroine come from being twins. This beautiful story broke my heart over and over. I hung to every page, anticipation, the kisses, the little girl with her big broken man…heartwarming and I deem this book on my TOP 2020 MUST READ list!

R E V I E W ➠ Flirting with 40 by K. Bromberg




RELEASE DATE: September 15, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have to be honest I was a little worried about reading this because I really do not like the hero to be the younger one. At the beginning I was set to put it into a category but the more I read the more I freaking fell in love with Slade. My god did I fall hard!

This is not your typical hero younger heroine older romance because it’s so much more. Not only does the heroine in here gain everything back mainly herself thanks for the hero but she teaches him a few things along the way. The hero is a 31 year old that is a new Cardiac Surgeon and the heroine is a 39 year old woman working for the came company looking for that promotion, a company that wants to take it back or rather forward tot he youth. She is a divorcee to a man that not only didn’t know her but also left her for a younger woman who is her identical twin almost. When she ends up in a bar alone trying to nurse her no not broken heart but the new manager hired, who is out to get her…Slade slides in just as he belonged there from the beginning. Their conversation is not to typical and when she meant to blow him off to leave her alone because why would a younger very sexy man want to be talking to her old grumpy ass she is surprised to learn quick that Slade is not a push over and a man who is genuinely a good human being. These two get into all kinds of trouble and the main kind of it all, the love trouble. I can’t say more because honestly this is a book to live through…I promise you that you will LOVE this no matter what type of reader you are. It’s fun, flirty, genuine, romantic, funny, heart breaking, sweet…it has it all. I am so happy I gave this my all because I got all from it. p.s. beware of their stolen kisses, stolen touches and the real real feeling of two people genuinely interested in one another and the BUTTERFLIES!

My ex, the new prosecutor, complicates things; especially when the animosity between us infects the whole courtroom.
Then I meet Callum—my brother’s friend, a bounty hunter, and the accused in my new case.
The charge—sexual battery.
The supposed victim—a bail jumper he’s been chasing halfway across the country.
My instincts tell me he’s innocent, which I set about proving, but I didn’t expect to fall for him in the process.
Our mutual attraction becomes a tempting complication neither of us can resist.
When a body turns up, Callum and I realize a war is raging around us; and one of us is the target. With an ex-husband eager to take me down, and a woman determined to ruin Callum, we need to figure out who the perpetrator is…before time runs out.

RELEASE DATE: September 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author, little secret but I’ve been reading this author for years and loved all her books I’ve read. So when I saw she was giving us a (The Salvation Society) book I jumped right on it, I really liked all the books of hers I’ve read her writing style a lot and so I just signed up didn’t look at anything 🙂

I fell in love with this from page one, I kind of knew because again I really love this author’s writing style. These characters were mature, sexy, smart…they fit well together and the story line was fantastic lots of suspense and action mixed with a whole lot of romance. Romance between two adults hat have put their careers first hand and okay with that, until they ran into each other…literally. It kind of all went from there, Callum is a bounty hunter and accused of sexual harassment on accounts from someone he brought in and Reagan our heroine is GAH loved her, she is a criminal defense attorney and also they both have someone in common, the heroine’s brother is friends with the hero. So all mixed together you get lots of actions, real REAL romance and everything in between. I would highly recommend this book, can not wait to get a paperback of it and re-read this!

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I am a huge fan. Have read almost all of her books and of course have read Book 1 and 2 in this series which really blew me away but this one broke me SO BAD in all the good ways!

So I was kind of prepared a bit for these two because of the previous books, so to say I was prepared HA i was NOT ready at all. This book broke me from the beginning, the anguish, the pain…but then you get hints of the beautiful and sweet and good days and you get that little hope inside you to get you through. The feeling in this, Amy really gets deep with words and when you are reading, you are feeling every single letter! As heartbreaking as it is, it’s also beautiful, full of life, mysterious, angsty…and romantic. Their bond is a little dfferent than the rest and when you fidn out why, you’ll swoon and melt like I did!

Dual POV, action, angst, passion, secrets, romance, previous books characters, truly an experience when reading.

RELEASE DATE: August 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and not my last. I have fallen in love with this series from book one, and I have been waiting for the youngest brother’s story and it did not disappoint! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this series & this book!!

WOW. I was not expecting that, I mean Brig is the youngest brother of them and the most ‘I WANT TO FIND LOVE’ silly, sweet, big heart and still very handsome and sexy in his own way. Ruth is, she surprised me each time, my heart fell for her at every corner fallen and by gosh, can you live through a character? Because i sure as heck did with Ruth. She’s had a secret for a long time, the secret being only to Brig who is a clueless idiot. Talk about a town effort. Yes, you will get lots of laughs here but also sweet moments that will keep you wanting to read more and need more. I was very captivated by this one, I even cried my eyes out. I really wish there is it will be more because I don’t want it to end please. And I am saying this because of the way this book ended, I’m kind of hanging there….

Is the Boom between Talon and Mia strong enough to weather the storm that’s coming? 

RELEASE DATE: August 4, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be my TOP 5 favorite authors and one of my first reads from many moons ago. To say I know this whole entire series like the back of my hand would be an understatement. Every time Aurora gives us another Until I SCREAM because truly I am SO invested in this wonderful series. And yes, you can ask me about any one of them and I can tell you in great detail about the characters and story line. #sorrynotsorry

I’ll begin to say that Talon is Nico & Sophies (Until Nico) Son and ugh I couldn’t wait for this one because not only did I love Nico but Talon is a replica of his father in many ways including being a big handsome sexy alpha man with tattoos! That said Talon and Bax his brother own their own construction company. Now the heroine is Mia, she moved to the small town to help her sister who recently is getting a divorce from her cheating husband. She thought she would be there a few weeks and 6 months later she finds herself at a car dealership working as a sales person, which she seems to be good at. A girl’s gotta work right! When a actual tornado that everyone said was only a alert occurs, the man she couldn’t stop looking at in the show room saves her, good thing because she was stuck and frozen to one spot in shock. Talk about a meeting!

I could probably tell you scene by scene but don’t want to ruin it for anyone especially my fellow UNTIL SERIES enthusiasts. You will most definitely get the BOOM in this one, all the feels, the sweet, the alpha and the OH SO SEXY! Be prepared for a little of mystery, danger and a man who is not only down to earth but so genuine and kind *swoon* The story fits the cover very well, and be on the look out to want a Cece & Winston story (which will come in the HEA World of Aurora)

R E V I E W ➠ The Devil’s Crown by Monica James


Part One


I was feared.
Respected.
Worshiped.
But all of that changed when the impossible happened—I fell in love. Only those feelings weren’t reciprocated, because who could love a monster like me?
My empire crumbled. People died. I went from being a victorious leader to lurking in the shadows, planning revenge on my half-brother who now reigns in my place.
An orphanage is where I find sanctuary, but when she walks into my world and evokes a yearning I thought long dead, my demons are awakened and want what they can’t have—her. Sooner or later, I knew I’d need to feed the darkness inside me.
Mayhem, power, and control course through my veins. I will use them to regain my crown, my throne, and then claim her, despite what solemn vows she might’ve made.
I will break them…and her.

**All The Pretty Things Trilogy Spin-Off**

RELEASE DATE: July 21, 2020

We’re like desperate, starved animals pawing at one another, wanting to rip the other apart.

Aleksei

Not my first read by the author, and I am a huge fan of her dark romance and well all her books but the dark, she does it well!! So happy and honored to be on her ARC team and received this first hand! I dived right in with no expectation BECAUSE I have a love.hate deal with Alek (please ALL THE PRETTY THINGS Trilogy) I can’t say it fully because it will ruin it. But because of that, I’ve bene on the fence about Alek…

Alek is ruthless and I mean that in all the forms in EVERY form, but even from the trilogy I learned something about him…his heart (or a piece of it that’s left) is HUGE! I don’t care what you say but his weakness may be common in someone eye’s but beautiful to me. Definitely have a weak spot for him, aside from all his bad-ness! This was sinfully delicious! And I say that with respect to “HIM” but talk about being all kind of ways of fucked up after this…

This is all I am going to say about it because I just finished and I like writing my reviews just as I finish so it’s fresh in my mind and my emotions. I was a MESS. An utter mess by the end, what’s worse is HOW DOES ONE WAIT TILL SEPTEMBER for more? As tragic as it was, dangerous, sexy, sinful, deadly…in a way Alek’s story truly is a forbidden act. I am leaving it at that, it’s a cliffy so yeah!

R E V I E W ➠ After All by Kristen Proby




The last sizzling novel in Kristen Proby’s Romancing Manhattan series finds a widower falling deeply in love again with a woman who has scars of her own.
When Carter Shaw’s wife died five years ago, he was left to pick up the pieces not only of his own broken heart but also that of his devastated eight-year-old daughter, Gabby—leaving him with no time for anything else, let alone dating. But recently, Carter has noticed women again and soon even begins dating. No one has stuck around for long, mostly thanks to one very angry Gabby.
Nora Hayes has worked as Carter’s assistant for years. Recently divorced herself, Nora spends many hours at the office and helping Carter with his daughter whom she adores. Despite loving her job and being wrapped up in the Shaw family, Nora’s never given her handsome, kind workaholic boss a second thought, especially in the romance department.
But then the snowstorm of the century hits, and Nora finds herself stranded at work with Carter overnight. And suddenly, she sees Carter in a whole new, sexy light. The sadness that’s lived in his eyes for so long has now been replaced with pure, unadulterated lust—and Nora isn’t quite sure what to do about it. For after the pain of her divorce, she never thought she would give love a second chance.
Carter and Nora have always believed in never combining business with pleasure. But how can they possibly deny the all-consuming chemistry between them…?

RELEASE DATE: July 14, 2020

“You don’t like to sweat?” “No. I don’t. It’s just…sweaty.” “So noted,” he replies. “I plan to feed you well, Nora. I plan to do a lot fo things well.” If that doesn’t send a zing down my spine and straight to my lady parts, I don’t know what does.

Not my first read by the author and not my last, I have read the other books in this series as well and I have to say that THIS ONE TOOK THE CAKE for me, TOP 2020 MUST READ from page 1 through end! I seriously loved everything about it, from meeting the characters, to actions, events…and Gabby the he’s daughter, I want a daughter just like her, sweet, smart, sassy and super adorable and funny!

Not your average office-romance because Nora and Carter have known each other for a very long time. She’s been working for him for a decade, and even was there through out his late wife’s death, and of course her own divorce. So the lines were always there but they were blurred until that one day where ‘THE KISS’ almost happened and Carter couldn’t stop thinking about it. This takes you on a fun adventure of actions, events and little bit of heartbreak and I will warn you this man will spark your panties right off you, wow on the love scenes HOT DAMN to be exact! The outcome is very sweet and I am so sad to see this series end! At least all three books are available to binge read!
