Synopsis:

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Emma's Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire (Burlap and Barbed Wire Series Book 6)Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book six in the Burlap and Barbed Wire series is finally here! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book specifically. I truly enjoyed all the prior books in the series but from the moment I met Emma, and the constant mentions of Zach, I knew there was a good story there. Well, this book was worth the wait. I absolutely adored both Emma and Zach. Especially Zach. While he is a sexy rodeo cowboy, he is also a gentleman. Zach was kind, sweet, loyal and loving. Without going into too many details, I’ll say I was sad for all he missed. You know, those awful misunderstandings and assumptions we love to hate in our romances? Well this book has that. I’m just so happy everything worked out.

Ok, I will also say that while their circumstances were nothing I’ve ever read before, I thought it to be a bit unbelievable when first mentioned. But as the book goes on, the author does a good job of helping me to believe something so unbelievable could truly happen. And that is all I will say about that, lol.

Emma and Zach are reunited after six years. As you know from the blurb, there is also a little person in the scenario now. I enjoyed the whole dynamic of Zach, Emma and Tony learning how to be a family, how they could make it work. There are a few obstacles in their road to Happily-ever-after. But their love is strong. It always was and that was all they needed. This book is low angst and enjoyable to read. I’m very happy I got to read this series. I definitely recommend the Burlap and Barbed Wire series from Shirley Penick.

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

NEW RELEASE: Title: Pretty Thing, Author: JA Huss, Genre: Contemporary Romance (Brother’s Best Friend)

 

Title: Pretty Thing
Author: JA Huss
Genre: Contemporary Romance

(Brother’s Best Friend)

Release Date: April 15, 2019
Blurb
My best friend made damn sure I knew the rules. His sister was strictly
off limits.
UNTIL NOW.
KALI
Growing up it was always the three of us. Me,
my twin brother, Kyle, and our best friend, Aiden. We were inseparable all the
way through high school.
Did I picture myself with Aiden from the first
moment I laid eyes on him back when we were eight? Hell. Yes. I fell in love
with his soul that day. But he was always more Kyle’s friend than mine. And
Kyle made damn sure we both know the rules.
I was strictly off limits. Forever.
But now Kyle is gone. Dead from a freak
accident. And Aiden is still here. Looking hot as hell in his grown-up body.
Looking sexy AF with those tattoos all over his muscular chest. Sad and in need
of comfort.  Just like me.
AIDEN
Every time Kyle caught me lusting after his
twin sister, Kali, he reminded me of the rule. “You were my friend first.”
If you want to get technical about it, I was
Kali’s friend first, not Kyle’s. But that’s not how he saw it. One rule. That’s
all we had between us. Just one. Stay away from my sister.
All these years I’ve honored that. I never
broke his trust. Until now.  Because he’s dead. He left us. And being
with Kali is the only thing that makes the pain go away.
I want Kali. I want to marry her, and have kids
with her, and keep her in my bed forever.
But I want Kyle’s blessing too. And that’s
something I’ll never get.

Excerpt

Kali sighs a little. Her shoulders slump and her head lowers
with them. “I’m not using you,” she says.
“Good,” I say. “Because I’m not using you either.”
“I’ve always liked you. And if you’d like to talk about that
someday, we can. But…” She looks at me. Places her hands on the sides of my
face. Blinks twice. “Not tonight, OK? Can we just not think too hard about it?”
It, meaning the sex. Or maybe the funeral. I’m not sure.
I decide to say nothing in response. I’m drunk, I’m sad, I’m
horny, and I’ve got Kali Anderson sitting in my lap.
And we’re naked.
“Come here,” I say, placing my hands on her head. “I want to
kiss you for a while.”
She smiles into the kiss that comes next. It’s a nice kiss.
A slow kiss. One where our mouths fit together perfectly, and move just the
right way, and there’s nothing awkward or distracting about it. It’s just nice.
After a little bit of that I find myself thinking too hard
again.
Maybe slow and careful is a bad thing? Maybe what we really
need tonight is something hard, and angry, and quick?
She reaches down between her legs and begins playing with
herself again. Rubbing her pussy with the flat tips of her fingers as she
stares into my eyes.
Yeah. Slow and careful is for another night.
I reach down and take my cock in my hand. Pulling and tugging
on it. I’m already fully erect but there’s something intimate about
masturbating in front of someone. And doing it together is even hotter.
Her other hand rests on my shoulder and a chill rises up my
spine.
This girl. This pretty thing I’ve known almost my whole
life. She is the dream girl. She is the one I’ve always wanted. She might even
be the one I’ve always loved.

Lori Wilde

Genres:  Romance; Christmas Romance

My Rating:  5

Cover:  4

Publication:  October 16th 2016

Kindle:  384 pages

Series:  Twilight Texas

POV:  Third-person dual perspectives  

Synopsis:

The whole town is ready for the holidays: The Cookie Club is baking, Main Street glitters with lights, the carolers sing… There’s even a Christmas wedding.

When bodyguard Ryder Southerland sees his best friend’s sister Katie at an L.A. Christmas party, he mistakes the slinky blonde for a celebrity stalker and tackles her. Then they tackle each other… at his place. The next morning, Katie’s gone, and Ryder tells himself it’s for the best. It isn’t.

My Review:

A Wedding for Christmas (Twilight, Texas #7)A Wedding for Christmas by Lori Wilde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to A Wedding For Christmas (Twilight Texas #7) by Lori Wilde.

The Twilight Texas Series by Lori Wilde is one of my all time favorites. What make the series even better is when Christmas is added. Christmas in Twilight is a magical time of year. While I have read all the books in this series in order, you can definitely read this one as a standalone. But if you have time, I recommend you add the whole series to your TBRs. Lori’s writing style is smooth and each page flows into the next with the perfect pace, making this book just as engaging as all the others.

Ryder and Katie…….
So here we have the brother’s best friend trope; one of my favorites. Ryder is a few years older than Katie but when they were growing up as kids together, the age difference would have made any relationship inappropriate. Not only that, but because of issues with his family, Ryder was taken in my Katie’s parents and he refused to do anything that would disrespect them.

When Katie was 15 and Ryder 18, he left Twilight to join the military. After he served his time there, he settled in Los Angeles, working security for celebrities. It is at a holiday event, a decade later, that Ryder unexpectedly runs into Katie. Immediately sparks fly. That said, they spend one glorious, unforgetable night together and then don’t see each other until a year later.

Katie does not want her heart broken again so she tries to avoid Ryder when he returns to Twilight to be the best man in her brother’s wedding. But Ryder doesn’t let Katie push him away. The romance and chemistry between these two is scorching and they are amazing together. I loved how tough, sexy Ryder melted anytime he was with Katie. Katie is a strong character. While she tries to hide her feelings, Ryder can see through her and because of this, he decides to make some changes in his life. He wants to be a man worthy of Katie’s love. He won’t let her hide from him.

I enjoyed this romance so much! I can’t wait to read the next Twilight book which is also a Christmas romance. Being in Twilight Texas for the holidays is magical. Again, I recommend this wonderful series to you.

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

Synopsis:

They call me a playboy.

Sure, I like to have fun with the opposite sex, but hey, in my line of work, who wouldn’t?
My name’s Jonah and I work for Bunny Hunnies, a swimsuit magazine. Calling the shots, and taking pictures of gorgeous women is every man’s fantasy, including mine.

That is, until Chelsea Sincock walks onto the set of one of my shoots.

I’ve known Chelsea since before she was this hot as hell vixen wearing nothing but a bikini.

What is she doing here?
Does her brother, Declan, know?
Did I mention he’s my best friend?

This is going to be hard, I mean difficult, to work with her. And the more I gaze at her from behind the lens, the more I realize I’m in way over my head.

My Review:

PlayboyPlayboy by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book was great! Short, sexy and sweet.

5 Stars to Playboy by Logan Chance.

As usual when Logan Chance releases a new book, I’m all over it! Having only discovered this author this past year, I can easily state he is a favorite.

Playboy is another well-written addition to this author’s list of already amazing books.

Jonah & Chelsea…….

Jonah and Chelsea haven’t seen each other for years; since Chelsea’s parents divorced and she moved away. But now she is back and looking to make a place for herself in the entertainment world as an actress. But until she gets her big break, she’ll settle for a modeling job.

Jonah is a professional photographer. He loves his job and especially the perk of being around beautiful women all the time. But one day when he is asked to photograph a new model, things quickly become complicated.

Since this book is a fast-paced read, I won’t spoil the details for you with a summary. I will tell you there is angst, great tension, steamy sexy moments, and an awesome cast of characters. I loved this book and absolutely recommend it. If you’re already a Logan Chance fan then I know you’ll love it. If this is your first book by this author, you’ll soon see what I mean.

Happy Reading!!

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