Synopsis:

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Making Up (Shacking Up, #4)Making Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another incredible book from this author. Since I first started reading books by Helena Hunting, I have yet to be disappointed. All the emotions are there and all the boxes checked. Her heroines are smart and strong-willed as well as relatable and likable. Her heroes are always sexy and sinful, but gentlemen.

In this story, the oldest brother of the successful hotel mogul family finds his happily-ever-after. When he and Cosy meet for the first time, I was enamored. In just a few pages, I learned a great deal about Griffin. His shyness and vulnerability were endearing. I knew this man had a background I wanted a front row seat to. In addition, watching him with Cosy was like watching him truly experience life for the first time. Another aspect I loved about Griffin was the fact that while he is incredibly wealthy and not shy about spending his money on Cosy, he was not pretentious.

Cosy, is quite a bit younger than Griffin but that didn’t seem to be an issue once these two got to know each other. There are several bumps in their road to happy-ever-after and a good amount of angst in the book. But every bitten nail was worth getting to the end. I won’t get into any other details so you can enjoy this sweet story without spoilers.

This is definitely a must read. I just love how light hearted I always feel when a finish a Helena Hunting Book.

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

Synopsis:

Failing wasn’t an option, but apparently falling for my professor was.

Attending the prestigious King University is one of the many things I must do to keep my parents happy and my trust fund secure.

Having a stellar transcript is another. Unfortunately, my grades are slipping and the only available option is setting up extra help with my professor.

After the first study session I know I’m in trouble. Her tempting lips and the honey scent of her perfume tests my resolve until it crumbles. One shared kiss and I’m willing to risk it all.

Professor Martínez may be my downfall, but falling never felt so good.

DebaucheryDebauchery by Remy Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this one!
I admit I was wondering to myself how much I would enjoy this book. I have never been a big fan of the older woman/younger man trope. It’s just not something I connect with. However, I will also admit that this author has written two books in this trope which I enjoyed. Especially this one. First, I’ll say, I appreciated how the H/h didn’t just jump into anything. Both tried to fight it and the sexual chemistry and tension rose and burned at the perfect rate. Each of the main characters were dealing with life issues and just trying to get through each day, that would bring them closer to the resolutions they needed. Unfortunately, Harper and Connor could only keep away from each other for so long. The great aspect about that for me was that when this couple did connect for the first time, I believed it. And having both Harper and Connor’s perspectives helped a great deal with that. Both of their inner struggles made this book more complex, more honest and more enjoyable.

That said, while the relationship was simmering, the writing pace was perfect. Most of you know that Remy Blake is two authors. Another great aspect of this book is that you can’t tell there are two completely different author perspectives in this story. Every word flows perfectly into every sentence, then every page and chapter. Seriously, Debauchery is a great read that I highly recommend. This was book three and my favorite of the King University series. There are quite a few secondary characters in this book; especially Harper’s older brothers. I hope that some day, we might get books for them as well.

Another great five star read!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

It's Not Over Teaser 1

Synopsis: 

Gwen

Lately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man, I’ve ever loved.

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.

Harrison

Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me. She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized, that I would do anything to change the past. I have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that, it’s not over.

It's Not OverIt’s Not Over by Kaylee Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing! Totally Swoon-worthy!
Incredible, fantastic read!

This book tugged at all my heartstrings. From the very first page I was invested. I needed to see this amazing couple get there happily-ever-after. They deserved it so much!

Harrison and Winnie were happily married at one time. But lately, Harrison let his job come first. He didn’t mean to, though. All Harrison wanted was to create a future for him and his precious Winnie. They had made so many dreams over the decade they were together. And when that all came crashing down, it not only broke both their hearts, but mine was hurting too. And that right there is one of the many reasons I loved this book. This author duo had me engaged and eagerly awaiting for Winnie and Harrison’s happy-ever-after. They made me feel everything!

It’s not often I come across books where the H/h are already married. And even though there were only glimpses into their past together, I believed their relationship was special. I felt their love on every page. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that Winnie and Harrison belonged together.

I won’t go into details because I don’t want to ruin the experience of this amazing book for you. I will say that It’s Not Over is angsty and emotional with a good amount of suspense. In addition, there is a cast of secondary characters that bring even more depth and believability to the story. This was a book I immensely enjoyed. I believe there is going to be a book featuring Harrison’s best friend, Chase and Winnie’s sister Gabby. I am looking forward to that book!

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

Devilry Teaser 1

Synopsis:

Attending King University was at the top of my bucket list. Falling in love with my professor wasn’t.

Earning a full scholarship to King University was my hard earned ticket out of hell. I’m happy to be away from the small town I grew up in and all the equally small minded people who live there.

King was going to be my safe haven. A place where I could leave the old me behind and finally grow into the young man my family had desperately tried to hide away.

Diving head first into new experiences, new friends, and parties, I didn’t expect to run straight into the one thing I wasn’t ready for.

His arms are welcoming, his body is addictive and his lips are heaven. Cole Huxley is everything I could fall in love with, except for one problem… I never wanted to fall for my professor.

Devilry is part of the King University Series, but can be read as a complete standalone.

Devilry (King University #2)Devilry by Marley Valentine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I immensely loved this story. Everything about it touched my heart. Devilry was very well written and you can tell the author put her heart and soul into every word. While there are plenty of scorching moments, I found the relationship developing between Elijah and Cole most prominent in the story. do read quite a bit of MM romance. That said having different authors perspectives on this genre I know what I like, I know what I enjoy reading. And this book had all the feels I look for in that perfect read. In addition I want to say that this story was very believable. Some of the emotional aspects broke my heart, but there were so many moments that made me smile and swoon. Cole was the older in the relationship however Elijah was very mature. There were times where if I didn’t know better I would say Elijah was the older in the relationship.

Another great enjoyment of this book for me was all the secondary characters. They really all were an integral part of the book. In fact, the author has me curious if there will be any spin-off novels coming.

This is not the first book I have read by this author. I’ve enjoyed most every book I read by her. She is a talented storyteller. I also want to say that whether or not you are a fan of this genre, You’ll enjoy it regardless. It’s deep, angsty, emotional and the happily-ever-after was perfect. Don’t let me forget to mention the epilogue was incredible too. This was the second book in the King’s University series. I can’t wait to read the third! I recommend this as a must read especially if you love a book that will pull at your heartstrings.

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

Synopsis:

People see what they want to see. They only view what’s on the surface, and they’re easy to fool. I let them see on the outside that I’m a successful businesswoman. My clothes are designer, my makeup flawless, and I live in a high-rise condo in Lennox Hills. They see perfection, not what lies beneath the surface.

The real me, the one I keep hidden is a broken-hearted woman who uses the makeup to hide her tears. The expensive clothing covers a heart once shattered by love. The walls of my expensive home shelter a lonely woman who hides the fact that deep down she wants to be loved. A woman who is too scared to risk her fragile heart.

For ten years, I’ve managed to hide behind the image of perfection. Only letting people see what’s on the surface.

Until I ran into him.

Now, every raw emotion, every shattered piece of my heart that I buried long ago is exposed outside the protective walls of my high-rise condo. No matter how hard I try, I can’t keep the walls from crumbling. He sees me beyond the image that I’ve created. He says he can handle what’s below the surface, but can I?

On The Surface is book three in the Imperfect Love series but can be read as a complete standalone.

On the Surface (Imperfect Love, #3)On the Surface by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Nikki Ash just keeps on impressing me! I loved this book so much! You can tell that this author puts her heart into every story.

Ok, so I’m not going to lie…..when we met Celeste in Nick’s book, The Pick Up, book one in the series, I did not like her. Not at all! Then we are given more of her in Killian and Giselle’s book. There I can admit I still wasn’t on board with the “Celeste” train. She just was not a likable character. And do you know what? I’m glad the author kept her backstory from us until her own book. Celeste is a very complex character. There are many sides to her. But as the title implies, Celeste is just one persona on the surface. There is so much more to this woman. My admiration and respect for her grew expotentionally in my mind and in my heart. No, Celeste was not perfect. She did frustrate me now and again. But this time I understood where she was coming from. Fear is an emotion that has the potential to destroy us. I’m just glad that by the end of the book, Celeste decided to overcome most of her fears to have her happily-ever-after.

Now, Jase, swoon-worthy all the way. Even Jase is more that what you see on the surface. I loved his character from the moment we met him in the past. He was so perfect. If I had to dig deep to find any flaws he might have, I’d be unsuccessful. He was just everything I love in a book boyfriend.

Going into the book, you know these two have a past. And while it was a short one, there were very strong feelings involved. Unfortunately, something happens that separates them for ten years. So much time has passed but the hurt never left either. I’m not going to say they made up quickly because that would make this story a disappointment. The regrowth of their relationship was a slow one. Yes, they had hot chemistry and a few hot moments, but when it came to committing, there were issues that had to be dealt with.

But in the end, I couldn’t have asked for a better “wrap-up.” I’m not ready to say goodbye to these characters. I absolutely can’t wait for Quinn’s book. She is Jase’s sister. I already know her story is going to be great.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. But trust me, you’ll want to read the two books prior for a better reading experience.

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

Synopsis:

They say that its only just before you die that you truly see what’s important.

Nick Sloan can vouch for that. After being shot in the line of duty and barely pulling through, he knows that his dream job of working SWAT in the big city isn’t the dream he should be chasing. No, when he was lying in that hospital bed, it wasn’t the badge that he thought about, it was her.

Kady Shaw never thought she would see him again but then he turned up, out of the blue. The man she’d loved. The man she’d thought she would spend the rest of her life with. The man that had shattered her heart when he’d chosen a promotion over their engagement. But all of a sudden he’s back in Fate, Texas, back in their small hometown, back and swearing that he’s going to win her back as well.

Can Nick convince her that he can be trusted with her heart again? Is there anything left of Kady’s heart to give? Or is a life tied to a man that will always put himself in danger to save others too much to ask of her?

Out of the BlueOut of the Blue by Jess Bryant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Out Of The Blue by Jess Bryant was a five star read for me!

Oh, I loved this second chance romance! If you are looking to swoon, this is your book! Another great aspect of this book for me was the groveling the hero had to do. Nick Sloan messed up so bad. He left his true love thinking he could pursue his dreams and not miss her. But when a near fatal shooting happens, Nick realizes just what his dreams really are. But is he too late to fix the damage he caused to Kady’s heart? Kady was devastated by Nick but she is strong enough to not give her heart away so easily again. Especially to Nick. Nick really had to work for her forgiveness. I truly love when a heroine does not give in easily. This book was perfect in that regard.

This author has everything I love in her stories. All the feels, a perfect reading pace and I always stayed engaged in the story from the beginning. Actually, if I had one complaint about this book, it would be that I wanted more. I don’t want to say anything more since this book is short and a quick read. You’ll want to enjoy it all on your own.

Do you love small-town romance with fun, loyal secondary characters? That is another reason you’d love this book. Because this author has such a great talent for storytelling, I remember all her books like I recently read them; Jess Bryant leaves an indelible impression on my heart. Lucky for me there are still a few that I haven’t read yet.

I absolutely recommend this and all the Fate, Texas books in addition to all this author’s works. You won’t be disappointed, I promise!

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

Synopsis:

One tall, dark, and broody professor + One overachieving college student = Chemistry they can’t erase.

When I was asked to babysit for a single father, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Two months with Mr. tall, dark, and broody didn’t seem like a bad trade-off for the money he would pay me.

As the weeks go by, our attraction grows and I realize what a concerned and caring father he is. And he learns that not every woman is untrustworthy like his ex-wife.

We both agree to walk away from our fling when I leave for college at the end of summer.

And reluctantly, we do.

Until my first day of classes when he crashes back into my world.
“I’m Professor Decker. Welcome to King University.”

Depravity is part of the King University Series, but can be read as a complete standalone.

Depravity (King University #1)Depravity by Jacob Chance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One of my favorite tropes is single father romance. There is just something about the way they love their child. In addition, the vulnerability a single parent has is precious. Of course most, if not all, decisions in their lives are made with their child at the forefront. I can totally appreciate the way a single parent sacrifices their own needs/pleasure in life for their child. This book was great in that aspect. Of course, I will admit that while I do appreciate the previously mentioned personality traits, Miles was a bit gruff. He said the rudest comments. And often. I’m so glad that Sophie was mature because otherwise, I don’t think their relationship would have worked. She was thoughtful enough to understand his emotions, even if they frustrated her at times.

Miles and Sophie’s story is angsty. A quality I also appreciated was how believable their relationship was. The age gap between them was pretty big but that was not a problem for me. Their maturity was what I felt the most rather than the gap in age between them. I won’t say much more because this is a book you’ll enjoy reading on your own. However, I would like to add how much I adored Joey. He was the star of the show so many times. I just adored that little boy! Again, I absolutely love single fathers in romance!

I definitely recommend this book. I can’t wait to read what is coming next in the King’s University Series.

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

Synopsis:

No one needs that many hookups!
Not even soon to be major league pitcher, Theo Von Bremen.
So, I help him by routinely thinning out his contact list—because I’m the best roommate ever. And he’s optimal baby daddy material.
For me—not Amanda 1, 2, or 3.
But since the man can’t take a hint; I’ll continue to spray his sheets with my perfume and accidentally leave my panties in his laundry.
That has to be enough to break a man eventually. Right?

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Pitcher (Commander in Briefs #0.5)Pitcher by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic!
5 Stars!
Wow! Just wow!
First, I have to tell you this is the prequel to already published Commander In Briefs. Pitcher is not recommended to be read as a standalone. You can read it as a standalone if you want to, but you just can’t appreciate its greatness without reading Commander In Briefs as well. That said, I hope you will give this author a chance because she is an amazing writer. Literally, I am always impatiently waiting for her next release. I immensely enjoyed reading all her books.

Theo and Anniston…..
Ok, so to say these two have a complicated relationship is the understatement of the year! My heart kept breaking for Anniston. She needed Theo in her life and she would take him anyway she could. And while Theo needed Anniston as well, he wasn’t ready for the next step. I will say that Theo was selfish when it came to Anniston. He wouldn’t let himself have her, so no-one else would either. Their relationship was very intense. But I already knew that after reading CIB. In fact, Theo is probably the most intense, possessive, and impatient hero I have ever read.

I’m not going into details because I don’t really need to. This book is the introduction to how Theo and Anniston came to be best friends, then more. Trust me when I say, for a short book, all the “feels” are there. I’m going to admit, that while reading this book, I bit off all my finger nails! I even have bandaids on a couple of fingers. Thanks for that, Kristy, lol. ❤ This book is a must read for all you Theo and Anniston fans. I’d also like to mention that after finishing Pitcher, I started to re-read CIB. I need more Theo!

Amazing Kristy!!

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

Synopsis:

“Elskede, I just wanted to let you know how much I missed you today. I can’t wait to see you in my jersey sitting in the stands. So sexy. More than that, I can’t wait to see you wearing nothing but my jersey ;)”

What starts as a routine run becomes anything but ordinary for sexy NHL player, Jude Christensen, when he stops to rescue a yowling kitten in distress. He rushes the mauled kitten to Dr. Megan James, the most gorgeous woman he’s ever seen. Even though she seems reluctant to respond to their instant chemistry, Jude is used to working for what he wants.

A new town, a new beginning, and a new life put Megan at a safe distance from the man that nearly killed her. But when her past returns to threaten her once again, the Savannah Heat captain walks a fine line; Megan is suspicious. She is hyper-alert to the dangerous difference between a man’s natural desire to protect his loved ones, and the need to own and dominate. Once fooled is more than enough for Megan. Will Jude be able to make her safe without interfering with Megan’s need to fight her own battles?

Jude’s Sweet Fire is the first book in the Savannah Heat series. Boasting a real hero, a spunky heroine, fun and sassy friends, Southern charm and danger. The passion in this suspenseful romance will leave you breathless with satisfaction.

Jude's Sweet Fire: Savannah Heat Book 1 (Savannah Heat Series)Jude’s Sweet Fire: Savannah Heat Book 1 by Jessica McBrayer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn’t love Hockey Romance? This trope is my favorite of the sports genres. Jude’s Sweet Fire is the first book in a brand-new series from author Jessica McBrayer. While this book is sweet and has likable characters, there is also a suspense aspect which gives the book the push it needed not to be boring.

Jude is the captain for the Savannah Heat and Megan is currently a veterinarian. Jude is not the alpha you would expect from a hockey player. I would say his persona is more gentlemanly. He is a loyal, considerate and protective man. Jude loves his family and his attraction to Megan brings his protectiveness to the forefront. This book has some dark moments caused by the suspense going on. I don’t want to give anything away so I really can’t say more about that.

Megan is a sweet woman. She truly loves her job and her heart swells with love when it comes to the animals she cares for. This says a lot about her character. Megan has danger following her but luckily for her, she finds herself receiving the attention from a gorgeous, protective hockey player. And while experiences from her past are telling her to keep to herself when it comes to men and relationships, there is something safe when it comes to Jude in addition to making her heart soar. I will say that Megan was very lucky to have Jude come into her life when he did.

This book is written well and flows nicely. Because this is the first in a series, the author introduces us to quite a few characters. These secondary characters gave the book more depth and has definitely piqued my curiosity as to what is coming next in the series. I’ll definitely be looking out for more.

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