I started reading when the fifty shades phenomenon happened a few years ago. I have read hundreds of books since then and a story playing around in my head for quite a while. I finally got it out and published and I’m so proud of my first baby. It has many flaws, but it was my first. I’ve written four since and with each one I’ve grown. I’m more proud and in love with the characters and their stories. There will be many more to come. I love writing!

Synopsis:

Summer Attwood has been hiding in baggy clothes and ugly glasses for nearly ten years. When the town hottie asks her to be his faux girl-friend for a couple of weeks she decides it’s time to put away the disguise and shine.

Cade Kipling can’t believe the beautiful woman that emerges from the cocoon of overalls and over sized glasses. If he wasn’t dead set on taking a few months to get his head on straight, after his long time abusive girl-friend dumped him, he’d be after Summer in a heartbeat.

Two weeks of dating will either kill them or change their lives forever.

📝My Review📝:

Roping Cade: Burlap and Barbed WireRoping Cade: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Roping Cade has a different feel than the previous books in this series. The author touched on a couple of types of abuse. I won’t go into details on that because you’ll want to read it on your own.

As with the prior books, this one flowed nicely and I did find myself eating up the pages to get to the HEA. That said, I was a bit disappointed in the main characters for different reasons. Cade had been in a previous relationship where he was on and off with the woman for nearly twelve years. I tried very hard to understand his feelings regarding why he stayed so long with his ex and just couldn’t justify why. His ex walked all over him and he never stood up for himself. He believed he had a good reason for his putting up with his ex but I couldn’t see it. Sadly to say, Cade was not portrayed as a strong male lead. That said, I still adored him and rooted for him to have a happy-ever-after. He was a very likable character.

Summer had her own issues. She had secrets and I understood why she kept them. Summer had been hiding her true self for ten years. And when Cade asked her to pretend to be his girlfriend for a while, Summer practically leaps out of her shell. Cade gave her the confidence she needed to be free of her past. And Summer helped Cade to heal from his.

There are definitely bumps in the road for these two. But once both Cade and Summer can believe in themselves, they are able to move forward with each other and with new goals. I enjoyed reading this book and I am curious as to which of the remaining two siblings will get a book next. I just hope the author doesn’t keep us waiting too long.

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

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Title: Forgiveness, Series: Nomad Biker Romance Series, Author: Chiah Wilder, Genre: MC Romance, Release Date: February 26, 2019

Title: Forgiveness
Series: Nomad Biker Romance Series
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2019
Nomad biker: a solitary life, riding from place to place. 

 

 

 

Flux once wore the Insurgents MC patch and his territory was Colorado. Now his bottom rocker reads Nomad. 
 
The open road is Flux’s therapy and facing a 1500 pound bull in the rodeo ring is the way he blocks out the memories. One-night stands, booze and plenty of weed have done a damn good job at keeping his heart locked up.
 
Until he meets a sassy barrel rider. 
 
The golden hair vixen runs rings around him faster than she rides her horse in the arena, and he can’t keep away from her. For the first time since the unspeakable tragedy happened, something stirs inside him.
 
But he has a long iceberg of guilt that he doesn’t want to get rid of. He’s chosen to live with it as a reminder of what has happened. Couple that with a bunch of inner demons that don’t play nice and he’s nothing but a shell of who he once was.
 
Maggie Haves hasn’t known anything except the discipline of practice. Touted as one of the best barrel riders to hit the rodeo circuit, Maggie doesn’t have time for anything that will veer her off the pro rodeo trail.
 
Rugged, tatted and muscular Flux is a very big distraction. Not to mention complicated beyond belief.
 
Flux has lived on the wild side most of his life, whereas Maggie has always played it safe. She knows the biker is danger in leather, but she’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Something about him keeps luring her, and she’s willing to take a chance on love with this imperfect man even if it destroys her. 
 
Will Maggie be the one to show Flux that he deserves to live again … and forgive himself, or will his demons devour her before he throws her away?
 
Can two unlikely people find love in the midst of so much darkness?
 
The Nomad Biker series are standalone romance novels. This is Flux’s story. This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

 

The screech of rubber caught his attention, and he side-eyed over to the commotion as a cherry-red pickup truck pulled into a spot, spitting gravel in the process. The ignition jerked off with an audible hitch that bounced across the parking lot, and Flux weighed the idea of heading out to the bar now. The truth was, he wanted to get back on his Harley—even the smallest ride cleared out his skull for a couple seconds. His fingertips were already itching to clutch the vibrating handlebars as he sat there turning it over in his brain.

 

 

 

His attention got shot to shit when a curvy blonde hit the pavement from the pickup’s driver’s seat and slammed the door. Flux homed in on the lucky SOB who got to stare at the chick’s tight ass in those jeans when he came out of the other side of the truck. The man, who was wearing cowboy boots and a hat, hissed something barely audible—a faint echo across the air. But whatever he said must’ve had something to do with Blondie because she squared her shoulders and threw the cowboy a death stare. After a few seconds, the chick sashayed around the car in sky-high heels, which made her wavy hair sway back and forth across her back.
 
A low growl came from the back of Flux’s throat. Come on, baby. Turn around so I can see the rest of you. The woman pointed a finger at the man, and even though Flux couldn’t hear their argument, there was no doubt it was heated. Blondie was right up in the dude’s face, and she was giving it as good as he was—which was impressive considering Cowboy had a good foot on Blondie. When the dude raised his arm with his hand clenched into a fist, Flux straightened up as a shot of adrenaline surged through him. If this jerk had any idea of hitting this chick, Flux would make sure the asshole would spend the rest of the night in the emergency room. No matter what the situation, Flux never tolerated that shit, and he wasn’t about to make an exception now.
 
Chiah Wilder writes about rough, sexy men who know how to treat their women.Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner.

Her love of reading has always been center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her books. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, romances with tough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons.

Welcome to the family…


This collection includes the first three complete novels in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets contemporary romance series — Eric, Brier, and Daveigh— as well as previews of the full first chapters of Miss Cavanaugh, Cavanaugh, and Adam.


Eric
Eric is the only quint who has life figured out. College. Work his way up the ladder in the family construction business. Marry Ginny, the girl with the heart of gold.

But for as much as Ginny’s told Eric she loves him, she hasn’t confided a secret that will throw a wrench in Eric’s plans.

When Ginny admits the lengths she’s gone to keep Eric, will her deceit tear them apart?

Brier
Brier’s defiant streak kept that hurt at bay. She left Kingsbrier unwilling to let the man she loved stop her from pursuing her dreams. Now, despite a fulfilling career, Brier knows something is missing from her life. When circumstances bring her back home, Brier confronts the one person she’s avoided for years.

Drew Newhouse has never backed down from a challenge. He’s let his childhood sweetheart push him away because he knows they have always been meant to be. This time, he’s playing for keeps.

With the help of the other quints, will Drew win Brier’s trust? Can Brier put her heart on the line and give Drew the chance they both deserve?


Daveigh
Cris Sanchez prefers to admire Daveigh Cavanaugh from afar. He’s a widower with a young son. She’s the boss’s daughter. The eight years that separate their age—and time that Daveigh has been away for college and vet school—should have sealed their fate.

Instead, Cris’s dedication to the family business and Daveigh’s love of animals draws them close. Now the pair must contend with the impending loss of a confidant they’ve shared for close
to a decade.

Daveigh returns to Kingsbrier harboring a secret, but none that cuts as deep as the one Cris has held onto. After allowing herself time to heal, will Daveigh find strength in their friendship to return to her studies? Or will she settle for half her dreams for the chance to be with the man she’s always loved? After admitting to his responsibility in his wife’s death, can Cris relinquish the past that haunts him? Or will he and Daveigh continue down separate paths?



Novels in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series are interconnected standalones, each with an HEA. Additional books are essential pieces of the overall story arcs as ongoing storylines develop throughout the series. Reading them in order is not necessary, but recommended by fans.

Jody’s husband asked what she’d been doing all day. After five years she finally confessed, “When no one is around, I write.”

Okay, It was more like trying to get out of saying a thing. Jody’s a writer. You want it pretty. Let’s compromise.

“Just finish one,” he said, challenging her to complete a story and share it. Little did he know that those words of encouragement meant they’d return from a family vacation with a wild and defiant set of quintuplets stumbling their way into adulthood. Wasn’t raising their three sons enough?

A native of nowhere, Jody settled in New England for 17 years before agreeing to uproot her brood of boys and move to North Carolina. She spends most of her time reading, writing, and hoping that her ravenous children haven’t managed to eat all the ingredients before she cooks dinner.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twelve men
Twelve months
Twelve articles
Means twelve books

I really enjoyed Mr. Dos. After reading the first book, I was on the shelf with how this was going to play out. Would I like the fact that Anthea would be having mini relationships with twelve men? Is she actually going to fall in love with one? Also, I’m not super on board with her deceiving each man. I guess I’ll have to keep reading the series to find out how everything will come together in the end. I admit I am definitely intrigued by this premise.

Mr. Dos was a better candidate than Mr. Uno. This book had more character interaction than the first as well. Also, I found it humorous at times. Things heated up fast due to the fact this book was around 40 pages. Just as I got into it, it was over. I do wish they were a bit longer. I can’t wait to read about Mr. Tres next!

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

Author: Madison Faye

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Blurb
Vows sealed us together. The mob tore us apart.
But now this beast without his beauty is coming back to
take what’s his.
She’s mine. To love. To honor. To comfort.
And this time, to keep.
Forever.
To a rough, filthy,
savage mob fixer like me, she was an angel. My angel. The
beauty to tame the beast I kept inside. I was lost the second I saw her. Abby
was my everything. My second chance, the bride I never should have had.
…And then one day, I
didn’t.
The mob takes its
dues in blood, and I was their collector. And somehow, I let her get away from
me. Too many shadows. Too much blood on my hands. Too many nights away from the
only bed I wanted, warmed by the only woman I ever craved.
But tonight, I’m through.
Tonight, I’m taking back my wife.
I’ve been keeping
watch over her, and my desire has turned to obsession. It’s turned into a raw,
fierce need—to have her, to claim her once again. To take her
back and take her in our marriage bed. I’m through being the
mob’s mad dog, and this beast is about to tear their world apart to get back
his bride.
Months ago, I let
the only goodness I’ve ever known walk out of my life. But tonight, I’m taking
her back.
Tonight, I’m claiming
her all over again. Tonight, I’m going to remind her of the vows we spoke.
And I’ll storm
heaven and hell to take back my angel.

Synopsis:

There’s nothing richer than a second chance in the steamy second book of New York Times bestselling author J.S. Scott’s Accidental Billionaires series.

Aiden Sinclair was a commercial fisherman before he suddenly came into his billionaire inheritance—not that he’s complaining. Being a Sinclair does have its perks. But things were simpler before the money. He may have been dirt poor, but he loved his job and fully intended to always come back from the sea to his girlfriend, Skye Weston, so they could move toward something more permanent. Or at least that had been the plan . . . until he returned from a two-month fishing trip to discover that she had moved away and was marrying somebody else. It tore his world apart.

Now Skye’s back in town after nearly a decade. She’s a single mother and just as beautiful as ever. However, for some odd reason, she appears to hate him, when it should be Aiden who wants nothing to do with the woman who dumped him. Unfortunately, more than nine years of separation has done nothing to put a damper on their white-hot chemistry when they’re together. But even if those feelings are real, Skye has been keeping secrets. The truth of the past is about to come to light, and there is so much more at stake than just Aiden’s heart.

📝My Review📝:

Entangled (The Accidental Billionaires, #2)Entangled by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say? This was a 5 star read for me. This author writes a lot of Billionaire romances. And from what I can tell quite a few of them are interconnected in some way. The Billionaires in this series are “accidental billionaires.” These Sinclair siblings grew up poor and struggled in many ways. I did not actually read book one prior to reading this one. Entangled is a standalone. That said, while you can definitely follow along, I did have some questions regarding the details of how this group of Sinclairs became billionaires. I will definitely be back-reading to get my answers.

So, this is a second chance romance with a lot of emotional baggage. Aiden and Skye were a couple for a very brief time when she was eighteen and he was 5/6 years older. Aiden left on an eight week fishing trip, looking forward to his return when he could work on his future with Skye. Unfortunately, Skye was gone when he returned and Aiden was heartbroken. Here is where I tell you that you will have to read this on your own. I can tell you there are misunderstandings, a lot of rampant emotions and a sweet happily-ever-after.

I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and flowed nicely. I definitely will read more from this author!

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