 Title: Rocked Senseless
Author: Alyson Hale
Genre: Friends-to-Lovers/Rock Star/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 15, 2019

 

 

When people talk about “falling” in love, they usually don’t mean it literally…
 
After a stage dive gone wrong, I woke up with a gorgeous, tattooed stud sleeping at my bedside. When he opened his deep, dark eyes, I felt something I’ve never felt for any man before.
 
Too bad I didn’t realize the beautiful, brooding man was Logan Young, my drummer and best friend.
 
Not only could my feelings destroy a fifteen-year friendship, but his girlfriend’s father holds our fate as musicians in his hands. One false move, and our careers are over.
 
Is that a risk we’re both willing to take? Or will the duet of our love song remain a solo?

Guitarist Chad Wilcox’s life isn’t going according to plan. 
At thirty, he never thought he’d still be unmarried and living with his parents. And with the added stress of his poor health, he’s convinced the only thing within his control is the success he’s found as a rockstar.
 
After reconnecting with his childhood best friend, Chad sets into motion a new plan to regain control over his happiness, and things start looking up. But when he finds himself diagnosed with a potentially debilitating chronic illness, he begins to wonder…
Is this as good as it’s going to get? Or is it at all possible for a guy like him to get everything he’s ever wished for?

 

 

 

“What’s that look for?” she asked with a giggle, as she reached around to secure her bra.
 
I shook my head as a smile stretched over my lips. “Nothin’. Just …” I swallowed at the warmth crowding my heart and my lungs. “You’re my best friend.”
 
She tugged a tank top on and sighed, her exhale lingering in the air. “You’re mine.”
 
Mine. The word was simple and yet held the world. It was an agreement, it was possession. It was an invisible contract that lingered between us, and I would’ve gladly used my own blood to sign on the dotted line.
 
But instead of pricking a finger and sealing the deal, I simply nodded, as only two words left my mouth.
 
“I’m yours.”

Now Available! Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie Duet Book One, A Friends-to-Lovers Roommate Romance. Read below the post for my Review! 👇

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

Truly Mine, Book 1

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. 
 
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, and I was no saint.
 
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs. 
 
Friends. It’s all we can ever be.

 

 
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me. 
 
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches. 
 
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie, #1 (Roommate Duet, #3)Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie, #1 by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, oh wow! Thank goodness I have more than nine lives because this author duo kills me every time. In a good way, of course.

Yep, you guessed it……cliffhanger!

So, that being said, there isn’t a whole lot I can tell you regarding details. But if you are familiar with this author and their duets, then no explaining is necessary. If not, then hang on for an emotional, angsty ride. Kennedy Fox can weave a tale of romance, angst, suspense and love every time. I always look forward to what comes next in their literary line up.

I can tell you this…..Mason and Sophie were introduced in the first duet of this amazing series. We know there is chemistry and something stronger between them. Even though we have never seen them on the pages together in any intimate circumstance, their attraction is so obvious. But why haven’t they acted on it? That is what you will finally find out in Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie.
I loved meeting Mason all over again with his own perspective. I really liked him. Of course I loved him too; he is a sexy man. But the fact that I like his character and the protective instincts he displays and the reasons he tries to distance himself from Sophie make him a gentleman as well.

As I said earlier in my review, I can’t say much because I won’t spoil this book for you. But I will say that it is amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on book two, which is thankfully coming soon otherwise I’ll be having too many sleepless nights waiting to find out what happens next. Oh, and that cliffhanger? It’s a big one! 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the tie 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. 🙂

 Waiting for You (The Holbrook Series #1)Waiting for You by Jasmine Stevens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

What a fabulous book given this is a debut novel. Before I get into my review, I want to mention that this author took nearly six years to get this book to us. I read the author’s note at the end of the book. Truthfully, after reading that, I could appreciate this book even more. While you are reading, you will feel this is a seasoned author. Jasmine Stevens poured her heart and soul in this novel, that fact being very obvious. Great word building, extremely complex and flawed characters and a happily-ever-after that was worked hard for. Lottie and Will’s story is poignant, complex, heartbreaking, tragic, and thankfully, the author threw in some humorous moments to give the reader some balance of emotions. Definitely has all the “feels.”

A childhood tragedy tore two best friends apart. Lottie and Will would be separated for eighteen long years. And truthfully, if it wasn’t for the fact that Lottie had to take care of the disrepair of her childhood home, she would have never come back to her home town of Holbrook. Her reasons were justified, although I will say that Lottie frustrated the heck out of me. To be honest, it took quite some time before I liked her. Will, I adored from the beginning. Lottie treated him poorly for most of the book, all in the hopes of protecting her heart. Will was persistent, though. He wanted to be with Lottie. As a child he loved her the only way best friends could. But seeing her as an adult changed his perspective. I want to tell you, there is a sad story here for these two. That said, at this moment, I can’t think of two characters that are so well deserved of a happy ending. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Though there were times I worried it wasn’t going to happen.

This book is angsty. And while there is great chemistry between Lottie and Will and a huge amount of tension, their intimacy was sweet. I wouldn’t call this a clean romance, but it was a tame one. Also, while the writing flowed nicely, I found some of the story to drag in places. Of course, I was getting impatient for my happily-ever-after, so it could have just been me. Regardless, I loved this book, I recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and I will definitely be looking for the next installment in Jasmine Steven’s Holbrook Series.

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

Title: Dark Days: Semester 2

Author: Liz Meldon

Series: Dark Days Duet

Genre: Enemies-to-Lovers Paranormal Romance

dd cover 2

blurb

A vampire desperate for a brighter future. A wolf shifter eager to forget the past.

A killer closing in.

Still reeling from the events of December 31st, wolf shifter Emma Kingsley stumbles into the new year knowing that nothing will ever be the same. Her sanctuary—her territory—is falling to pieces around her. Danger in the forest. Danger in the village. Danger at her door.

This time of year, wolf’s in season.

The cruel promises of two rogue vampires cling to her like a second skin, but so does the possibility for something more with the vampire who saved her life. Despite her growing feelings, she knows in her heart that Calder is a part of this madness.

And when the truth comes to light, will she ever be able to trust him again?

Forced to unite for the sake of their beloved boarding school, two former enemies are torn between doing what is necessary…

And following their hearts.

The fresh start that vampire Calder so desperately craved is shot straight to Hell when the past comes back to bite him. Had circumstances been different, he would have fallen back on old habits—and run.

But now that Emma is involved, he knows the game has changed. A price must be paid, and if it keeps her alive, Calder Holloway will pay it a thousand times over.

Even if that means forgetting his feelings for the beautiful shifter. Every. Last. One.

Because those messy, messy feelings are what got him into trouble in the first place.

In the dark days of winter, an ancient evil emerges from the shadows. Blood will be spilled. Lines will be drawn. Lives will be lost.

Only one thing is certain: no one is safe.

Not even creatures of the night.

Dark Days is a standalone enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance duet. While Book 1 has a cliffhanger, all will be resolved with a supernatural happily-ever-after in Book 2.

excerpt

As soon as my hand settled over the nape of her neck, Emma bolted upright, shrugging me off. “You don’t have to… Just go, Calder, I’m fine.”

“No, you’re not.”

“Well,” she wiped at her cheeks, “that’s not on you to fix.”

“I’m not trying to.”

“Calder—”

Oh, fuck it. I wrapped an arm around her shoulders, dragging her out from under Sampson and straight to me. Emma fought back, just as I knew she would, but not as hard as she could have—and less still when the tears started up again.

“Calder, just stop…”

I maneuvered her easily, lifting the shifter onto my lap, her back to my chest, both arms snapped tight around her in an embrace she couldn’t break even if she tried. And she tried. Emma pushed at my arms, drove her elbows into my ribs—weeping. She fought until she broke, until she went limp against me, body wracked with sobs, her nails sinking into my forearms like a steel bear trap. Pain flickered at the indents. I ignored it, all of it, and just held her, my face buried in her hair, drowning in lavender.

Our hearts beating as one.

Liz is a Canadian author who grew up in the Middle East. She has a degree in Bioarchaeology from Western University, and when she isn’t writing about her own snarky characters, she is reading about other people’s snarky characters, babying her herb garden, loitering on social media, or taking care of her furbabies.

Liz dabbles in both paranormal and contemporary erotic romance. Her paranormals are usually dark and angsty, and her contemporaries are stress-free smutfests, but you’ll find both full of feels. Most of all, she loves writing realistic characters in fantastical settings.

Synopsis:

New Orleans firefighter, Caleb Moureu had to trade body shots and hot all-nighters for sippy cups and actual up-all-night fevers when his sister was killed, leaving his niece in his care. But two years in, he’s definitely got the hang of this fatherhood thing. Of course, he couldn’t do it without nanny-turned-friend and fellow single parent, Lexi. Because of her, things have always been pretty easy.

Getting pregnant and going it alone wasn’t in Lexi’s plans, but thanks to Caleb, she’s doing okay. He’s helped her out with everything from diapers to car repairs over the years. So, when she suddenly needs a place to live, of course Caleb steps up. After all, it’s only temporary. They’re just friends. It’s just a favor, like all the others.

But for now it really is, very, very nice.

Nice and Easy (Boys of the Big Easy, #3)Nice and Easy by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the second book I’ve read in this series. Of course I read them completely out of order but that didn’t matter. That only made me want to see how the other characters found their HEA. I found this novel intense and sexy. Caleb, the hero, was a particularly intense character Caleb was dominant in every aspect of his life; always having to be in control. There were a few times throughout the book where I was frustrated with his always having to be in charge. It was a good thing that Lexi loved him so. It also didn’t hurt that she was a submissive person and liked being taken care of. Truthfully, if she wasn’t so accommodating, I doubt she and Caleb would have made it. Don’t misunderstand me because Lexi was in no way a week character. I respected her and the author did a great job with helping me understand her.

Caleb has been raising his four year old niece for the past couple of years after his sister and her husband died in a car accident. Lexi is also a single parent. Both Caleb and Lexi have been helping each other out with taking care of the children while the other one is working. They have been doing this for a while now and it worked well. Until it didn’t. I won’t give anything away however I can tell you I loved watching their platonic relationship develop into something intense and magical. The author also does a wonderful job with taking Caleb and Lexi and letting us be able to watch then grow as a couple. I absolutely loved the slow burn, tension and intense chemistry between.

From start to finish I was rooting for Caleb and Lexi to find their happily ever after. The only complaint I had with this novel is that is was very heavy on monologue. Several times I had to reread because there was so much monologue between the dialogue and I couldn’t remember what the characters were talking about. I don’t mind a book with a lot of descriptive text, but I do need a balance between monologue and dialogue. Of course that is my preference and some of you may not mind it. Regardless, I enjoyed this book. I have always enjoyed this author and will continue to read her books.

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