Synopsis:

What happens when a woman falls in love with her stalker?

I’m not the type of woman who actually inspires passion in any guy, much less one who makes it a habit to watch me because he’s obsessed.

I’m a curvy, plain Jane. I like my chips, chocolate, and junk food, and it definitely shows.

I’m an educated geek who would rather have my nose in a computer instead of a fashion magazine.

But none of those things seem to matter to Stalker. He sees something in me that I don’t see in myself, and I don’t know why.

I’m terrified, yet I’m inexplicably intrigued.

I’m cautious by nature, but something makes me want to know who he is, and why he gives a sh*t about somebody like me.

I know falling for a man I’ve never seen in the light of day is dangerous.

Does he stalk me because he wants to own me, control me, and make me into the woman he thinks that I am?

Does he want to hurt me, or is he just a lost soul like me?

And why did it feel so good to touch him under the cover of darkness?

Is he my nightmare or my dearest stalker?

Getting to know him might be foolish, but for some reason, I just can’t walk away…

Author’s note: This is a red-hot, sexy, curvy girl serial romance with an obsessed, alpha male stalker. Read at your own risk. The stories will come out in quick succession so you won’t have to wait long for the conclusion.

📝My Review📝:

Dearest Stalker: A Complete CollectionDearest Stalker: A Complete Collection by Lane Parker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars
The boxset of Dearest Stalker contains four parts. Having this available in this form is great because you have all four parts of the book in one place. When I first learned of Dearest Stalker, only parts one and two were available so I decided to wait on the completion of the story. I am not a fan of cliffhangers and avoid them usually. I kept checking this author’s Goodreads page to keep on top of when the last two parts were released. And oh, what I happy day it was to get an email from Parker Lane’s PA who asked if I would be interested in reading the box set. Well…duh…no brainer there.

Each of the four parts is around 50 or so pages long. When I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. The pace of the story is pretty fast. In addition to that fact, I devoured the story so eager to get to the end. After the first part, the rest of the story was predictable with the one exception. I knew the s*it would hit the fan, but wasn’t sure how the author would take us there.

Kate has a stalker. She has had a stalker for the four years she was in college. Working on a degree, Kate wants to work in technical engineering. Her dream job is to one day work for the Blackwood company and be part of the technology that successfully creates robotic surgery. Kate’s stepbrothers are Blackwoods. Since she was estranged from her father, she does not know her stepbrothers very well. As the story progresses with each part, Kate becomes closer to the Blackwoods AND her stalker who is always there watching. I will tell you now that this is not a creepy stalker story. As I said earlier, I don’t want to ruin any of the story so you’ll just have to read it on your own. I definitely recommend this boxset.

The characters are wonderful. All of them. There is a complexity to both Kate and her stalker. Also, there is definitely character development. Also, this book is angsty and emotional. It’s sexy and intimate and you can’t help but to love everything about it. I really enjoyed this gem.

Even better……at the end of the book we get a glimpse of the next book which will feature Ben Blackwood and Kate’s friend, Ariel. Can’t wait for that one. At this point I’m not sure if it will be one book or in parts. If it is in parts, I guess I’ll just have to be patient, lol.

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

Love couple in bed

Synopsis:

“You may be faking the relationship, but you’re not faking the orgasms.”

Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood bedroom in the town she couldn’t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year. Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students? Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principal’s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibi—for a price. The Deal: He’ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship. Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But it’s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. There’s too much history. Rock bottom can’t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it? Warning: Story also includes a meet-puke, a bouffanted nemesis, a yard swan and donkey basketball, a teenage-orchestrated makeover, and a fake relationship that gets a little too real between the sheets.

📝My Review📝:

Rock Bottom GirlRock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever read a book that you could relate to so well that it gave you anxiety? Rock Bottom Girl did that for me. I believe there are four types of high school experiences. One being you loved high school and everything about it. The second being you absolutely hated it. The third being you pretended you loved it when you actually hated it. And finally, the fourth being you have both good and bad experiences. That’s me. I fall into the fourth category with a touch of the third. High school was not great for me in freshman year. I wasn’t bullied but I had a hard time trying to find my place. I ended up making friends that were not great in the way of role models. But thankfully, by my sophomore year, I knew who I was and who my true friends were. Unfortunately, there were not many of those. That said, I watched so many kids being bullied. Marley was familiar. There were so many Marleys in my high school. Unfortunately, there were more Amie Jo’s than I could count. I was more than thankful to not be on their radars.

As I read through this book, the angst just kept building. I really didn’t know how Marley’s life would turn out. And while she was very stubborn in her way of thinking, I understood her. There were many predictable moments that made me cringe and laugh at the same time.

Marley was that bullied girl in HS. I seriously don’t understand how she remained a decent person after all she had been through. I loved her character. She may have thought herself weak but Marley was anything but. When she moves back to her hometown after losing yet another job, broke and broken up with her boyfriend, Marley is at that place we call
“rock bottom.” Sometimes we need to hit that place in our lives to find a new perspective. Marley will take a temporary job as a gym teacher and soccer coach. Warily accepting this job, Marley will soon find out that this was the new direction her life needed. Nothing will come easy though. Marley admits to being afraid to return to HS even if she is an adult now. And sadly, she will have to deal with the school bully once again as this antagonist is a fellow teacher.

Of course, the bad boy of her youth still gets her blood pumping. There is also a story there but I won’t go into details. Marley’s journey, while angsty, is pure hysterics. Gosh, I laughed so much and so often through this book. My daughter thought I was crazy because of my loud bouts of laughter.

While this book brought back some less than pleasant HS moments, the author did a magnificent job in giving me new memories. Even if they aren’t mine, I got to experience them. I can’t say enough good things about this book and I’m so afraid that I haven’t done it justice in my review. This was actually the first book I ever read by Lucy Score. I am a huge fan now. If she writes all her books with this many feels, I am going to be a very happy reader!

I highly recommend this book to everyone. There is love, romance, a fake relationship, a hero donkey, and more laughter than my stomach muscles could take.

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

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. 🙂

Synopsis:

Project Runway meets Mulan in this sweeping YA fantasy about a young girl who poses as a boy to compete for the role of imperial tailor and embarks on an impossible journey to sew three magic dresses, from the sun, the moon, and the stars.

Maia Tamarin dreams of becoming the greatest tailor in the land, but as a girl, the best she can hope for is to marry well. When a royal messenger summons her ailing father, once a tailor of renown, to court, Maia poses as a boy and takes his place. She knows her life is forfeit if her secret is discovered, but she’ll take that risk to achieve her dream and save her family from ruin. There’s just one catch: Maia is one of twelve tailors vying for the job.

Backstabbing and lies run rampant as the tailors compete in challenges to prove their artistry and skill. Maia’s task is further complicated when she draws the attention of the court magician, Edan, whose piercing eyes seem to see straight through her disguise.

And nothing could have prepared her for the final challenge: to sew three magic gowns for the emperor’s reluctant bride-to-be, from the laughter of the sun, the tears of the moon, and the blood of stars. With this impossible task before her, she embarks on a journey to the far reaches of the kingdom, seeking the sun, the moon, and the stars, and finding more than she ever could have imagined.

Steeped in Chinese culture, sizzling with forbidden romance, and shimmering with magic, this young adult fantasy is pitch-perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas or Renée Ahdieh.

📝My Review📝

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I loved this book. It was fresh, original, unique, and nostalgic of other tales. Spin the Dawn is the amazing story of Maia Tamarin and how she fights to become the Imperial Tailor and the amazing journey she goes on to create the dresses of legend. The plot was constantly intriguing, I never wanted to put the book down. This book is a Mulan inspired retelling but other than the fact that Maia has to disguise herself as a boy the similarities stop there. Spin the Dawn was its own original tale but like I mentioned some aspects of it reminded me of other stories. The plot was consistently moving, it was a nonstop battle to the finish. My only critique is that I think the romance leaned towards insta-love and that is not my favorite trope at all.

I really loved the characters. Maia is a wonderful female protagonist. She consistently worked hard no matter how many people undermined or teased her. Her talent as a seamstress knows no bounds. I think she got in her head a lot of the time but she was always strong enough to pull off the tasks required of her without Edan’s help. Now let’s talk about Edan! His character archetype is what I like to call the “Nikolai Archetype,” meaning that his character personality and actions are similar to that of Nikolai from the Grisha trilogy. These characteristics include sarcastic, snarky, never takes anything seriously, fun, sly, secretive, very attractive, has some type of eliteness to them, mischievous, evasive of questions, usually lonely, and lastly has a 99.9% chance of being my favorite character in the book. Another character like this who Edan reminds me of in River Shara from Even The Darkest Stars. He was a wonderful character and as the Lord Enchanter there was no shortage of antics from him. He loved to tease Maia but also supported her along the way. Lady Sarnai is the character I am most interested in. I think she has a big role to play and I want to learn more about it. She acts cold and vicious but it is obvious to see that she is just a girl upset over being given to the emperor as a way to barter peace. More is going to come out of that storyline and I cannot wait to learn more about it. Emperor Khanujin is interesting and I can’t really figure him out. He seems calm and peaceful but I can see those hints of his thirst for great power. I wonder what will happen with that.

Spin the Dawn is perfect for fans of Renee Ahdieh, Naomi Novik, and Heather Fawcett. Specifically fans of Uprooted and Even The Darkest Stars. I really loved this book and I cannot wait to read more. Even if this book doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, I encourage you to try it out. I am sure that you will find it worthwhile. I certainly did.

Synopsis:

I just published my first novel: Love Doctor. There’s one small problem—besides the fact it isn’t selling—my boss from Hell, Dr. Declan Sincock, Sex Therapist, was my muse. Let’s just say, I took some creative liberties with him…
I never thought he’d know about it.
And never in a million years did I think he’d read it.
But he has, and he’s not happy.
I should just quit, find a new job, but now I have another plan. Write what you know, right? Dr. Sincock is going to educate me on how to write hotter sex. He just doesn’t know it yet.

 Love DoctorLove Doctor by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was an absolute breath of fresh air. To tell you the truth, I am not at all surprised that I loved it. This particular author is one of my favorites for a very good reason. Logan Chance always entertains me. Love Doctor in particular, took me on a versatile, literary journey. I know that sounds cliche, however it’s how I feel. I started off laughing and ended the last page with a goofy smile. Another aspect I was impressed by was how obvious it was that the author did his research. Not just medical research. Each chapter began with a notable author’s quote. In addition, I loved the added bonus of “writing within writing.” This book was written with care and love. The author made that obvious.

Rose works for Declan as his assistant. Declan his a sex therapist and is very good at it. Is that profession his true passion, what makes his happy? Does he feel fulfilled in his life? You’ll have to read to find out exactly what makes his heart beat faster. Declan is cocky and confident. He is gorgeous and intelligent. He can also be a pain in the butt; Declan feels the same about her. Do you want to know my favorite aspect of Declan’s persona? It was his vulnerability. I can’t say enough how much I loved Declan. I am so thankful for the dual character perspectives. Being inside their heads, knowing their most private thoughts mad this book believable.

Rose is an aspiring writer. She is currently working on her first novel but criticism from a peer causes her to make some courageous decisions in order to better her writing. Apparently, her intimate scenes are quite lacking. I wonder who she will ask for help?

I’m not going to say any more, or give any more details. I can promise you, you’ll love this adorable, sexy, sweet, endearing story. I absolutely recommend this book and if you haven’t checked out this author yet, you’re missing out on some wonderful storytelling.

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

📝My Review📝:

Dear Sexy Swimmer (The Matchmaker Series)Dear Sexy Swimmer by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wished this little gem was longer. One of my favorite aspects of this novelette was the letter writing between Pike and Maia. They first met as pen pals via a matchmaking service. The letters they wrote to each other were so sweet. Through their letters, both Maia and Pike became so much more to each other before they even met face to face. And when that moment happened, I was smiling so hard. Because this book is so short, there is no character development. This short story centers solely around the love between Maia and her sexy swimmer. That said, I enjoyed it for what it was. A super short, super sexy and sweet read!

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

A Valentine’s Dream

Synopsis:

A Valentine’s Dream – A Curvy Girl Valentine’s Day Romance

Amy:

February 14th is just another day to me.

I don’t really believe in hearts, flowers, romance, or happily-ever-afters. And I certainly don’t think there’s a dream man for a curvy woman like me, even if my little sister had found hers over the holidays. I’m more realistic. Or at least…I was…until I met Levi Gillette during my sister Hayden’s wedding rehearsal dinner The man seems to have an annoying ability to make me lose my cool and calm facade. Yeah, he’s definitely hot, but my sister’s brother-in-law-to-be was also arrogant, infuriating, presumptuous, bossy, and most likely one big player because the man could be charming when he wanted to be.

No thanks! Been there, done that, and I’d had more than enough of men like Levi Gillette. But when I start having amazingly erotic, intimate dreams about him, it’s almost impossible to ignore him in the flesh.

In my dreams, it was like I’d known Levi forever.

But in person, I barely knew him, and he challenges everything I’d ever assumed about myself. We don’t even like each other, yet he feels so…familiar.

Finally, when the lines between dreams and reality start to blur, I have to wonder whether I can trust a guy like Levi with my heart.

I knew he was hiding something. There were things I didn’t know. I could feel it.

So when Levi finally reveals some hidden truths, I’m not sure whether to believe him, or run away as fast as my sneakers can put distance between us.

How can a woman like me, a female who has never had much faith in romantic love , suddenly believe in a A Valentine’s Dream?

Author’s Note: This isn’t your average, sweet Valentine’s romance. It’s an erotic, romantic fantasy sprinkled with some insta-lust/insta-love. But it IS a safe story. Guaranteed HEA, no cheating, and enough sweetness and heat to melt your Valentine’s Day chocolates. If you’re looking for a steamy, fantastical, curvy girl romance….read on. : )

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Levi and Amy’s story…..
One thing I can say for sure is the premise of this book is one I haven’t come across before, with the exception of the prior book which is about Amy’s sister Hayden and Levi’s brother Jackson. Unfortunately, I cannot in good conscious explain the premise to you because that would in fact spoil a whole lot of this book for you. I can tell you that dreams do come true.

This book, was an enjoyable read. I liked Levi and Amy, especially watching their relationship grow. While they did have a history of sorts, they definitely needed time to figure out how to move forward. Levi was genuine. He was a gentleman and most importantly, I believed him. As different as the premise is, Levi made me a believer. Amy was a good heroine even though she frustrated me from time to time. That said, I understood her hesitation and wariness in giving her heart to Levi.
A Valentine’s Dream was a sweet and steamy read. The slow burn, scorching chemistry, and intense feelings were believable to me. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it because not only is it sweet, it’s original.

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

Synopsis:

I have a crush on Nolan Archer, Boston University’s freshman running back. He’s the definition of tall, dark, and swoon worthy. My knees weaken every time our eyes meet. There’s only one problem… he’s a virgin.

As much as I try to convince myself he’s too young for me, or that I prefer experienced guys, I can’t deny the flames of attraction flaring between us.

When his fraternity brothers decide to auction off his virginity, it forces me to make a decision.
Should I forget about Nolan once and for all, or place the winning bid and be his first score?

Score by Jacob Chance

This is book six in the Boston Terrier series by author Jacob Chance. I believe this is the last book in the series and that makes me sad because there’s still more characters on the football team that I wish would get a happily ever after. However the author will be giving us a new series with BU’s hockey team players. You’ve already met a couple of those guys, specifically Clancy. I am really looking forward to his story. Not to mention the fact that I love hockey romance.

This book was a little bit different than the others in the series in the way that it takes place post football season and during the university’s Christmas break. However this is not categorized as a Christmas romance. While The playing of football is primarily absent in this novel, we got to watch a group of the guys having fun and just letting go. There was no drama. And for me, that was a treat.

Nolan is a starting receiver for the Boston Terriers and is a freshman. Personally I thought Nolan was a great character. He was sweet, loyal, hardworking and a considerate young man. A gentleman Despite being inexperienced and a little bit shy around Perry, Nolan knew how to treat people with respect while having fun and making the people around him happy.

I’m not going into details because you’ll want to experience all that is Nolan Archer on your own without any spoilers from me. I am going to say that the author did such a wonderful job scene setting. I felt like I was experiencing a winter playground. Nolan, Perri, and some of the guys got to play and just have fun without the stresses of classes. They were all having fun and I couldn’t stop smiling. One of the secondary characters, in particular, had my attention for sure. Flynn. Since I think this is the last we’ll see of the Boston Terriers football series, I felt a bit of disappointment that we won’t get a book for him.

The last chapters of the book were perfect. While I predicted most of what was going to happen, there was a nice surprise thrown in that I didn’t see coming. Do I recommend this book? Absolutely! In fact, this author has not written anything that I didn’t love. If you haven’t read anything in this series, you should. It is a perfect binge-read series.

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

Oh, BABY teaser1

Synopsis:

Oh, baby. I’ve done it now. 
This isn’t one of those stories where the woman meets her forever man, has a passionate night of sex and then becomes pregnant with his baby and is thrilled about the start of a family. No. Real life isn’t a fairy tale. I stupidly had a one-night stand with the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on and became pregnant. 
It’s not one of those beautiful pregnancy test commercials with the happy couple on the bathroom floor rejoicing. No. Mine is more like a commercial geared toward teenagers about abstinence. 
Not to mention, I’m a prominent internet personality. Now, I can’t do videos from the neck down. My breasts are swollen bigger than ripe melons. I spend most of my time huddled on the bathroom floor. And the man? He doesn’t even know. I didn’t get his last name. Fate really isn’t on my side. Who do I happen to bump into while swollen and waddling, but my one-night stand, who I find out is a freakin millionaire. 
You’d think that I’d jump up for joy about that wouldn’t you? No. His last name is pretty much the most slandered name slashed across the media. I don’t want to be photographed within a mile of him, let alone connected to him in anyway. The notorious reclusive, Mr. Knox is my baby daddy. 
Now, he knows that the baby is his, he’ll stop at nothing to be with me. My career is in the balance and my body is out of whack. My life is pretty much down the toilet. This is just the beginning . . . soon it will all come crashing down around me.

📝My Review📝:

Oh BabyOh Baby by Nicky Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars! Yes! I loved this book so much! I’d been seeing it around after the cover reveal and knew it would be a book I’d love! It had the perfect amount of steam and sexiness without being crass. Don’t get me wrong I love dirty talking in books just as much as anyone but sometimes it can be over done and I find myself rolling my eyes. While this book is short and can be read in under a couple of hours, I found it had substance and characters that were likable and most importantly, believable.

Abby and Knox spend a night together. And even though they are still together come morning, circumstances and miscommunication separate them for a bit. When they finally reconnect, their chemistry is still as hot. But what I really loved about this book was the fact that they really liked each other from the very beginning. It wasn’t all lust. This book has some angst, a good pace and an engaging story. Again I’ll say, I truly loved this book and absolutely will read more from this author.

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