There’s a girl asleep by my bed. Her name’s Sophie and she’s the love of my life.
She doesn’t know that. I’ve never told her, nor given her any clues. I’ve been careful. I’ve been diligent. I’ve been the biggest asshole the world has seen.
To her. And to everyone.
But after I fell sick, she came back and she’s still here. I don’t know why, if it means anything, what she wants from me.
I know I want everything from her but I can’t ask for it.
Because I fucked up, I’m probably dying, and it’s too late for second chances… right?

This short novel is a standalone story in the Wild Men world (companion to Dark Child), and will release in October as part of the Cards of Love 2018 series.

StrengthStrength by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars
Oh wow! This was another amazing book by one of my favorite authors. Jo Raven has a talent for writing that is so unique. No other author I have read, tortures their heroes like she does. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to watch a character suffer and be able to do nothing but read faster to get to the HEA. Jo raven writes from the heart and amazes me constantly.

If you’ve read Dark Child then you know of Griffin and Sophie. And while you do not have to read that book prior to Strength, I recommend you do because there are quite a few mentions that might make the book even more enjoyable for you.

Griffin is going through dark times. Not only does he suffer from PTSD, there is an issue with his health. My heart broke for this man over and over. In addition to his self-loathing, Griffin believes himself unworthy of Sophie’s love. Sophie was an amazing, strong character. She was just what Griff needed to help him heal. Sophie would teach this tortured man how to love as well.

I can go on but that would mean I’d have to give you details and since I refuse to ruin this book for you, you will have to read it on your own. I promise if you are already a fan of Jo’s, she won’t let you down. And if you haven’t read anything by her yet, I absolutely recommend that you do!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Notes of the Heart

by Charli B. Rose


Genre: New Adult Romance

Series: Lyrical Odyssey Rock Star; Book 2


Their hearts were in harmony … until the music faded away.


Since childhood, our relationship grew from a single note to a full symphony. Two years ago, when I needed him most, he went radio silent. Starting over and rearranging the lyrics with someone new just hasn’t been the same. Beckett has my trust and friendship, but not what he wants the most: my heart. I have a second chance at love, if only my heart can change its tune. But before it can, that old song resurfaces …


Falling in love with my best friend was wonderful. Until I lost her as I chased my dreams. My dreams have become my reality, and I have it all, except the one thing I want: Izzy. Every song I perform is a reminder of what she inspired. Without her, the music that used to flow freely has died. If I can convenience her to be my song, my heaven, my everything once more, then maybe I won’t feel so lost. But her heart is singing a new tune, and I may be too late.

Can Dawson make Izzy see the classic anthem was better than a one hit wonder?

NOTE: This is a part TWO of Dawson and Izzy’s story. Part ONE of their story can be read in Beats of the Heart and is available HERE for 99 cents until 1/16/19!

Title: Taking Back His Bride

Author: Madison Faye

Genre: Standalone Second Chance Romance Novella
Release Date: January 14, 2019


We vowed forever. What we got was two years.
But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.
She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.
A filthy oil-rig
roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty
little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my
everything. My heart. My obsession. And one year ago, they told me
another man took her away from me.
…I just found out
that was bullshit. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.
Her family never
thought I was good enough for her. The wrong side of the tracks, and too rough
and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her,
and her from me. But now that I know the truth?
Well, now I’m coming
back for what’s mine.
I’m twice the man I
was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer?
Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to
our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all
away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.
The bastards that
took her from me think they can keep us apart.
…They’re dead
fucking wrong.
A year ago, I
thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking
back my bride.
And I’ll burn the
whole world down to get her if I have to.
Looking for a
ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one
and only? You’re in the right place! This one’s equal parts sweeter than
sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up
As with all my
books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

“Oh really…I’m young and dumb now, huh? Well, you’re old
and a dick.” She shrugs, pulling the sheet a bit more to wrap around her to
stand. She’s so damn mouthy, and towards me of all people. If I were a lesser
man I’d have her gagged for such disrespect.
“Where are you going?” I push, egging on an unnecessary
argument. Watching her attempt to get away from me even quicker has my Vendetti
temper flaring. The Capo rears his ugly head at not having his whim met
“I’m not laying here while you decide to talk down to me
after I gave my body to you freely.”
“Who will you run off to next, then?”
“You’re unbelievable!” She scoffs and I rip the sheet out of
her hands, wanting to hold her body to mine. Rather, she lets it go and
practically hops away.
The growl rumbles free, as I toss the vacated sheet off to
the side. “You’re not going anywhere,” I command, on the cusp of raising my
voice. It’s so unlike myself, I feel as if I’m spiraling…I don’t raise my
voice, I don’t ruffle, or even give a fuck. I demand, I take, I conquer- I
claim what’s mine.

📝My Review📝:

 Ice Hot (New York Nighthawks, #1)Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin!
This is a great start to what I believe is going to be a great series. Hockey romance is my absolute favorite of the sports romance genres. To me, there is nothing sexier than a hot shot hockey player. Additionally what makes this book an even better experience for me is I have found a new author to add to my TBR. Tracy Goodwin is definitely an author whose name I have seen before. Why I haven’t read one of her books before this, is a mystery to me. So I want to thank NetGalley for this recommendation. I will definitely be on the look out for the next book in the series. The author not only gave a great story with this books’s protagonists, but she gave us a good amount of inside on some of the other team members. I will also mention that Ice Hot has some of the most entertaining, loyal secondary characters I’ve read recently.

Christian and Serena…….
Christian is the new captain for the New York Nighthawks, NFL’s newest expansion team. Christian’s addition to this team and his recent two-time Stanley Cup wins makes him an asset the coaches and managers hope will lead the Nighthawks to their own trophy. Christian has had a tough childhood, with no support from his only living parent, his father. Since he came from nothing, he does his best to take nothing for granted. He is gorgeous, popular with women and fans but he has a side to him which is genuine. I think you should unravel the sexy enigma that is Christian on you own. Learning where he came from and how he got to where he is now, was a part of the book that the author used to really give us insight at what makes him tick. I will tell you, Christian is not all he seems. He was a gentleman. Was he perfect? No. Did he make mistakes? Yes, one in particular that had me wanting to kick his butt. Did he redeem himself? Hmmm…you’ll have to read to find out. I do promise you one of the happiest endings.

Serena is one of those heroines that I have crazy respect for from the first page. She is beautiful inside and out. But her most important attributes are her determination to be successful on her own terms. It was her determination, kindness, loyalty and take-no-nonsense attitude that made me her biggest fan. Okay, well second biggest when you consider how much Christian wanted her.

I won’t go into the detail of their relationship dynamic because you will enjoy reading that on your own. I will say there are insecurities among other hurdles that Serena and Christian will have to get over before their HEA. But when they do……One of my favorite happily-ever-afters!

This is definitely a must read. If you are a hockey romance fan, you can add this series to your TBRs. You won’t be disappointed. This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
