Synopsis:  

When Lizzy Roberts agreed to go on a blind date she never imagined it would turn into such a nightmare. Thankfully she’s rescued by a dark knight named Rocco, but his heroic act is seen as a violent attack after the judge is bought off and Rocco is sent to jail.

Rocco Lang took one look at the blonde and knew he had to save her. But when his anger got the better of him he ended up behind bars. He doesn’t regret his actions, just that they took him away from her. Now all he’s got are her letters to keep him warm at night.

Can they fall in love with just a pen and paper and their hearts on the page? You’re damn right they can!

Warning: This alpha might be behind bars, but he’s still running the show. Grab your jumpsuits and cozy up because this prison romance is everything your Valentine’s Day needs!

📝My Review📝:

 Locked Up LoveLocked Up Love by Alexa Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
I haven’t read a book from this author duo in a while. Matter of fact, I can’t remember which book of theirs I read last. For no other reason than my lack of time is the culprit. That said, I enjoyed Locked Up Love very much. Just as I remembered the style of writing by this author duo, I felt right at home. It was fast paced, sexy and delightfully over-the-top as is usual with their alpha heroes.

Before they could even develop a natural relationship, Rocco is sent off to jail. I won’t go into details because you’ll want to read this on your own. Regardless of the fact they barely knew each other, in addition to the fact that he was in prison, Rocco and Lizzy managed to connect on an intense level. These two were made for each other before they even had the chance to officially meet. While in prison, these two managed to grow a relationship that started with writing letters. That relationship was strong, bonded in love and yes, protectiveness and possessiveness; another Alexa Riley trademark.

So, again, no more details from me. I will say that I enjoyed this book and am very happy to have read Rocco and Lizzy’s story. While it was over-the-top instalove, it was also sweet and endearing.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you 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. 🙂

My Review:

Claiming HollyClaiming Holly by Mila Crawford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!
Cute, sexy story featuring an OTT possessive alpha.
This book was pretty short and one that I gobbled up pretty quickly. Holly was a down on her luck single mom, just trying to afford life. I liked Holly a lot. Despite her unfortunate circumstances, she was strong and independent. Her daughter was sweet and adorable and her character added some depth to the story. Bryant was not my favorite. Unfortunately, because of his dominant, possessive persona, it took some time to warm up to him. Eventually he grew on me because of how he treated Holly and her daughter. Just like with any OTT alpha, Bryant was intense but he treated Holly with tenderness.

Holly interviews for a position which will force her to spend a lot of time with Bryant. He needs a hired girlfriend to prove to his boss he can be a family man. Bryant is a pro-hockey athlete and striving for the captain position for his teamHis manager convinced him that hiring a girlfriend will make him look better to managment. Of course, Bryant does not intend to keep a girlfriend once he gets the captain position. Ha! Once he set eyes on Holly, his attraction is instant and strong. Bryant has no intentions of letting her go. Ever!

As I said, this was a quick, fun and sexy read. A perfect addition to my holiday reads thus far.

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

📝My Review📝:

Brantley's Way (The Running M Ranch #1)Brantley’s Way by K.L. Donn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

This was definitely a book I had a hard time putting down! Too much going on and I was so engrossed in needing my happy ending. Brantley’s Way is not your typical cowboy romance. That just means the main focus in this book was not ranch life. While Brantley himself is a possessive and protective alpha, Adilynn is strong and protective as well. Unfortunately, while Ady takes care of others, there is no one taking care of her. Ady needs caring just as much as the younger brother she adores and protects as well as the horses she cares for. For all her weaknesses, I found Ady to be a remarkably strong, young woman. I admired her spirit and loyal, loving, caring personality. I hated the horrific situations she was forced to endure and I hated her mother a hundred times more. My only disappointment in this book was that I didn’t get to see karma bite Ady’s nasty mother in the a**!

There is a good deal of characters introduced in this book and I can only hope the author will write about them. Another reason I loved this book was because of my love for horses and all things cowboys. Yeah, I admit it, this is my favorite romance trope. One more plus for me is that I found a new author to stalk. While I have seen KL Donn’s name all around the book-loving community, Brantley’s Way was my first read by her. She has over twenty available books to chose from. Actually, I already know what I’ll be reading by KL Donn next. You’ll just have to wait for my next review to find out. 😉

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

My Review

5 Stars

I loved this book so much! From the blurb you have a good idea what is happening and I loved the premise of this story. It’s one I don’t think I’ve read before. At least I don’t remember if I did. This was a well-written novella with a fast pace. It took me less than two hours to read it. I couldn’t get to the next page fast enough. The main H/h were both lovable. Each had a distinct personality completely different from the other. They were opposites in many ways; Ella’s submissive to Knox’s dominant and possessive persona meshed very well. Additionally there was respect and tenderness between them. They were completely made for each other.

Every moment Knox and Ella were together was intense and sinfully sexy with the added emotion of tenderness. I truly loved this book! I had so many favorite and memorable moments that will stay with me for a while. While there were many sexy and intimate moments between Knox and Ella, the moment that stands out as my favorite was their very first kiss. Hot damn that was hot. I felt that kiss all the down to my toes and back.

Knox is a wealthy hotel mogul while Ella is a dance teacher. They meet because Ella found Knox’s cell phone in a park. From their first text, they were drawn to each other. I felt their chemistry burning hot before they actually met face to face. Their relationship was on the side of unconventional but it worked for them. What they had together was what they both needed and it worked for me as a reader. I felt pulled in to the fictional world with them.

I won’t say much more because this book is pretty short but it definitely does pack a proverbial romantic punch. Totally swoon inducing. I have read all the books available by this author and I admit I have a few favorite heroes. Knox is definitely in the top 5. I loved this book and I believe you will as well! It’s short, intense, and swoon-worthy. ❤

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

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

Synopsis:

Fate can be cruel.

Luna DeLuca has lost everything except for her faith in herself. Kidnapped, tortured and threatened by a male that’s already killed half her family, she knows the only way to save the other half is by offering herself up to him. To save her sisters, she’s willing to do anything, even accept a claim from a male that isn’t her mate, a mark on her soul that will ruin her forever. But if this is what her family needs, what her pack needs, she’ll do it to save them all.

Fate can be twisted.

Michael Hudson thought his mission to save the neighboring Crescent pack was about helping out a friend. He thought it was about avenging an attack on his own. But the second he sets his eyes on the beautiful girl locked away in a dank basement he knows she’s why he was put on the face of this planet. She’s the reason he’s here. She’s everything. She’s his. His mate. His fate. His future. Only, she bears the scent of another and is nothing like what he imagined his fated mate to be.

But fate can also be kind.

As brave as she is, Luna’s wolf is submissive and submissive wolves aren’t meant to lead packs. They aren’t meant to be Queens. She knows that. So does Michael. But when he refuses to give up on her, refuses to walk away or back down, she begins to see why fate put them together. She softens him and he strengthens her and maybe, just maybe, if they believe in fate enough they can find their way to forever.

My Review:

Unbelievable Faith (Book 2 in the Fated Mates Duet)Unbelievable Faith by Jess Bryant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!!!!!

After reading book one, I could not wait to get my hands on Michael and Luna’s story! I loved the first book so much and book two was even better. If that is even possible! Jess Bryant is an amazingly talented author. I have loved everything I have read by her so far! The fated Mates duet is her first dive into the world of paranormal, specifically wolf shifters. I love shifter romances and have read many. So I can say with confidence that Jess Bryant is the author of two of my all time favorites. Yeah, I know…I’ll tone down the fan-girling, lol.

So we meet Michael in book one, Unbreakable Bond. That book was incredible, just saying. Michael is alpha to his pack. His brother, Rafe has returned from wandering for four years. Rafe finds his mate in Michael’s best friend Zoey. But Michael is not far off from finding his own mate.

And thank God he does! There are a lot of characters in these two books. There is a lot going on in the plot as well. I am not going to say anything that will spoil this book for you. Though I will tell you that when Luna and Michael meet for the first time, it’s not a minute too soon. He saves her. And from that moment forward, Michael will not let Luna go. The heat, chemistry and tension between Luna and Michael was palpable. It was intense and I felt it all. Damn this book was hot! Those two together were sinful but at the same time I found them adorable.

Michael Hudson is a total book boyfriend!

As I mentioned there is a lot going on. All the feel are present. Another aspect present for me was surprise. I didn’t see a few things coming and that fact only added to my enjoyment. By the way, Jess, I love where you went with Darius. That was so perfect! I wish there was more on that.

If I have any disappointment with this book, It’s that it ended all too soon. Luckily, the author has more planned for us with the Crescent Wolves in the future. I can’t wait!

If you are looking for a fast-paced, intense read within the paranormal genre, I highly recommend this duet. If you are new to paranormal, I highly recommend you give these books a try. You won’t be sorry.

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