About the Author:
A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.
After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.
The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

📝MY REVIEW📝:

 Drifter (Commander in Briefs #3)Drifter by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars from page one! This is one of my favorite books, ever! Thank you Kristy for giving us the perfection that is Connor Hayes!

When I met all these amazing veterans in the first book, Commander In Briefs, I couldn’t wait to read each of their stories. Drifter is book three and I can honestly say my favorite so far. I say so far because each book is better than the last.

Over a year ago, a book friend (That’s you Jessica) ask me to read for this author. Her name is Kristy Marie and she was new. Well after reading Commander In Briefs, I would have never guessed she was a new author. Her writing was on point, descriptive and every page was engaging. Her characters were all alphas in need of some emotional healing. Their stories are heart breaking. But they get a lot of support from secondary characters. That said, this book, as well as the others, have all the feels. But don’t worry because there is humor too. A lot in fact, which is another aspect of this author’s writing that I loved.

Connor Hayes is amazing. He is sexy, cocky and adorable. In addition, Connor is protective, loyal and dealing with his own emotional demons. Bianca was a perfect match for Connor. From the first pages, I liked her despite what she was planning to do. Bianca and Conner’s relationship grew slowly. While Conner knew Bianca had some dark issues she herself had to deal with, he believed her to be a kindred spirit and he wanted to know everything about her. Connor was patient and kind and a gentleman. He was determined to earn her trust. Gosh I love him so much! He is my favorite hero from this series so far. But alas, there are still several more vets to get their healing.

There is some suspense, angst, and sad moments. But as I mentioned, there is humor to balance it all out. Kristy Marie has quickly moved to the top ten of my favorite authors list. If you have yet to read any of her books, I highly recommend you do. All the books in this series are standalones, but I suggest you read them in order to have an even greater reading experience.

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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars..
Loved this book! What an adventure! You rock Christine😍

Oh. My. God! She did it again. I thought the first book was crazy fun to read, however this one is just as amazing. once again, the girls get themselves into the most unrealistic but at the same time, completely believable situations. At least it’s believable when it comes to these three. The girls are going on a cruise they won from a sex shop giveaway. That fact alone should have given some indication that their next vacation would not be typical.

I couldn’t stop laughing. While I was reading, everyone around me wanted to know what was so funny. I must have looked like a dork; I couldn’t stop laughing or smiling throughout this whole book. Ok, so, yes there were a few intense moments of suspense, but even then, the girls made me laugh over it.

While I would definitely call this book a comedy, there really isn’t too much in the way of romance until the last part of the book. And that was fine. The romance wasn’t what engaged me. Lisa, Jodi, and Darcie were amazing. The love and loyalty they have for each other is priceless. If you mess with one, you will get the wrath of all three “sisters.”

Seriously, I highly recommend this book as a must read. Not only can this author make you laugh, she will have you begging for more. Seriously, if you haven’t yet already, I highly recommend reading the Badcock Tour series. This book is truly the funniest I’ve read this year!

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

📝My Review📝:


Rebel HowlRebel Howl by Michelle Corchis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars to Rebel Howl by Michelle Corchis.

Oh my! I love paranormal romance; wolf shifters being my favorite! Lincoln Cruz is the alpha of his small pack. He is also a rockstar. And Lincoln epitomizes the rockstar lifestyle. Lincoln drinks heavily and is a womanizer. I admit, it is not easy to like him in the first chapters of the book. Not only is he arrogant, I didn’t like the way he treated his pack. His MO was basically, “my way or the highway.” His band/pack members seem to despise him and the dynamic among them was tension filled. Of course all the ladies love him; until their night is over.

There are several secondary characters in this book. I am hoping the author will write some of their stories as well. Especially Max and Gunner.

Savannah was an independent, take no nonsense, heroine. It took her a while to come around to Lincoln. She did not trust him at all! I enjoyed watching Lincoln discover his mate. Another aspect of the story I loved was that Lincoln had to work extremely hard to win over Savannah’s trust. For him, a man used to having his way with the ladies, this was difficult and not something he ever experienced.

Savannah is not only responsible for herself but she has an adorable little girl named Shay and a sassy, protective younger sister who added depth to this angsty story. I would like to see Lacey and Max have a book.

I know I mentioned this before but I want to say again how much I loved watching Lincoln change from a jerk to a man determined to love and protect.

There is some suspense going on that kept me on the edge of my seat. There are also some pretty nasty antagonists in this book. All in all I enjoyed Rebel Howl. If you are a fan of shifter romances with strong heroines and even stronger alpha heroes, I recommend this book.

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

Love On The Ranch Synopsis:

Elizabeth McKinnie will no longer accept men ruling her life. After the Civil War devastated her family home, and having no way to survive, Elizabeth accepts one of the mail-order bride proposals presented to her and her sisters. She chooses a man who promises to treat her as an equal. Her sister convinces her to switch suitors, proclaiming the weather in Texas would be more suitable for Elizabeth’s weak lungs. Agreeing, she heads west to meet the mysterious cattle baron she knows little about.

Jeb Clayton grew up as a poor son of a drunkard. He has worked his entire life to ensure he never starves again. He is a man who understands cows better than women, especially after watching the fairer sex manipulate his father into an early grave. Still, he begrudgingly agrees to marry a sturdy bride to produce sons who can help build his ranch into an empire. Yet, what he sees getting off the stagecoach is a whisper-of-a-woman with undesirable birthing hips.

When Elizabeth’s and Jeb’s futures are threatened will they join forces, or will their bitterness be their end?

Love on the Ranch (McKinnie Mail Order Brides Book 4)Love on the Ranch by Ciara Knight

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars..

There was a time in my life where I preferred reading historical romances over any other genre. That was around twenty years ago and my preferences have definitely changed. I love to read most genres now a days. But the truth is, there aren’t too many historical romances that have interested me lately. But that changed after I read the blurb for Love On The Ranch. I’ve always like the mail order brides trope but lets face it, they are overdone and it’s rare to find an original. That said, I wanted to read this book and I’m happy that I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Ciara Knight is a new author to me. I really enjoyed her talent for storytelling. While this novel is clean as far as intimacy goes, I felt the attraction and tension between Elizabeth and Jeb. She had a sassy, straight-forward attitude. She did not take threats from anyone. That includes the broody, rude and down right mean, Jeb Clayton. That being said, it does take nearly the whole book before these two declare their true feelings for each other. However, the slow build of their relationship did not frustrate me with the slower pace. Why? Because there was so much going on other than Elizabeth and Jeb’s relationship. This book has some angst and even a bit of suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will definitely be back reading the McKinnie Mail Order Brides series.

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

My Review:

Dark ChildDark Child by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…

So anyone who reads my reviews probably knows how much I love this author. I have been a devoted fan since she released her first book, Asher. Every single one of her books gives me heart palpitations. Jo Raven is amazing at writing books where boundaries are always crossed, hearts are torn to shreds and life is not pleasant. Her characters, specifically her heroes, are broken, emotionally and sometimes physically tortured. They have strong physical attributes but their hearts are heavy. What I love most is while she puts her characters through emotional trauma, Jo will always give you their healing. That said, Dark Child was another amazing book by Jo Raven. This author still sits at number one on my favorite author’s list.

The genre of this book states contemporary romance. In addition, this book is dark, angsty, suspenseful and passionate. If you’ve read Jo’s previous books, you’ll know they all interconnect in some way. Merc is Gigi and Octavia’s younger brother. And we’ve met him several books ago when he was just 15/16 years old. He is now 19 and a college student. He has a part time job at Matt’s (his brother-in-law) garage. I will say that Merc was an amazing character. There was nothing about him I didn’t like, except the emotional torture he suffered in this book. My heart was so heavy for him.

I don’t want to go into any details for fear of spoiling anything for you. I can tell you that Merc suffers from horrific nightmares. He tries to keep this to himself but ends up being something he can’t handle on his own. When he meets Cosima at school, he is instantly attracted but confused by her hot/cold behavior toward him and this only adds to his already rising stress level. But sometimes things aren’t always what they seem. Cosima was a perfect heroine for Merc. She was the calm in his trauma.

There were some predictable aspects in this book. I loved how Jo gave Merc his healing. It wasn’t quick or easy which made his issues believable. And I’ll add that the dynamic of Merc and his family is precious. They are loving , protective and loyal to a fault.

There are several new characters introduced in Dark Child. I know will be giving us their stories soon. Of course we get tidbits and hunts of the premises and I have my suspicions where she may go. Especially with JC. I absolutely can’t wait for those books!

Dark Child can be read as a standalone. However, I found that having previously read the other sibling’s books, make me appreciate the story much more. So if you haven’t, I recommend you check out this author’s other books.

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

Synopsis:

In life, you always learn one important lesson you won’t ever forget.
For me, it was to never have hopes and dreams.
They could shatter into a million pieces in a matter of seconds.
I’d managed to live by that one rule almost my entire life, until the day Harper and her little boy moved in next door.
One look into her guarded eyes and a flame of hope was lit.
Little did I know, her green eyes held more pain than my heart did. And breaking through the fortified walls she’d erected around hers would cause me more agony than I’d ever imagined possible.
I didn’t know if two broken and bruised individuals could come together and create something beautiful out of nothing but shattered pieces.
But I needed to find out.

My Review:

Shattered (Willow Creek Book 1)Shattered by A.K. MacBride

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…
Talk about all the feels! This book has it all. I experienced so much in this book. Love, heartbreak, angst, some suspense and even a bit of humor. All in all, a perfectly balanced novel. This is an author I most definitely want to read more from.

Shattered is written in first-person with both Harper and Logan’s perspectives; an aspect I love in a book. Both Harper and Logan have traumatic pasts. While Logan has learned from his past and is moving forward, Harper is still running from hers. As I mentioned earlier, this book has it all. I never felt frustrated with the pace and I loved both characters. In fact, I loved all the characters and can’t wait for Logan’s brothers to have their love stories written.

Harper is new to town having moved there recently with her little boy. Harper is a sweet, caring woman. However, she is very guarded, keeping only a few select friends. She works at the local vet which I believe is the perfect job for her kind and caring heart. Unfortunately, Harper refuses to give her heart away again. Past experiences have her keeping constant vigil on the walls she has built around her life. She is not letting her guard down. Ever!

Logan, who just so happens to be infatuated with Harper wants her heart. He knows that won’t be easy and she is hiding secrets. That’s ok because Logan is a patient man. I want to add here, that Logan was amazing. Yes, he’s attractive and sexy and all those things that makes your heart grow. But most importantly, Logan is kind, caring, generous and patient. The way is was with Harper’s little boy is nothing less than precious. He is a gentleman.

There is some angst and drama but I don’t want to give too much away. This book was so great and you should get to experience all the feels on your own without any spoilers form me. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have. I highly recommend Shattered as a must read!

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. 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. 🙂

Synopsis:

He’s a rockstar that can have any woman he wants,
but he has his sights set on his brother’s best friend.

Especially when the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen crashes his sister’s wedding and rushes into his brother’s arms. He wants her more than he has ever wanted anything and, brother be damned, he is determined to make her his.

Norah is in trouble. She has spent years perfecting a secret device for the government only to have it stolen. On a whim, she enlists the help of her best friend, Jameson. What she never expects is to meet her best friend’s brother and for him to offer more than just protection, he offers his heart.

My Review:

Coming Unplugged (Welcome to Carson Book 6)Coming Unplugged by Renee Harless

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

Holy heck in a hand basket! Yeah I said that. Have to come up with cheesy appropriate phrases these day so my reviews don’t get rejected. Pity, though because I believe true expression is important. But whatever.

This book! This series! This author!

When I discovered my first Coming To Carson book, it was exciting. I had never read this author and finding new authors to love is always a great experience. Renee Harless quickly became a fave for me to the point that I frequently stalk her pages. I have to make sure I don’t miss any new release info. An important aspect for me when reading is that I need the feels. I don’t have to have them all, but I do need a balance. A book with just tragedy and angst is not a “go to” for me. However, if there is a good amount of suspense as well as humor, I’m sold. And for me, that is what the Coming To Carson series establishes. I would categorize this series as romantic suspense with humor, a quirky, loyal small town, a mix of fun and serious secondary characters, plenty of sexy moments with the perfect amount of tension and an amazing HEA. Of course I will say that each new book is my favorite, lol.

While all of the books I have read by this author have a steady pace, I found Coming Unplugged had a faster pace. Once I picked up my Kindle, I could not put it down. Oh, no. There is so much excitement in this one that I had to keep reading until I got my happily-ever-after. The point I am trying to get across it this…..Renee Harless is an author you should add to your “must read” list.

Ryker and Norah…..
Ryker and his twin Jameson are the last of the Connolly family to have books. This is Ryker and Norah’s story. I believe Jameson will be next. And while that is the end of the family, there are a few citizens in Carson that I can only pray, Renee Harless will give attention to.

That said…..Ryker is a famous rock star who just recently decided, along with his band members, to take a break from touring. Ryker loves his career but lately, as he watched his siblings find love, he feels as if he is missing out. Ryker is very close to his family. That was another aspect I loved about this series. The closeness and loyalty between the Connolly family was amazing. Though Ryker is only 23 years old, he has a much older soul. He is very mature and his persona was realistic despite his young age.

Norah is more of an introvert. While I found her personality to be intelligent, independent and sweet, Norah was innocent in many ways. I enjoyed watching her fall in love with a rock star.

So I have to say this….the dynamic between Ryker and Norah is electric. I can best describe their attraction as instant love/lust. Truly, this book takes place over the course of several days. Ryker and Norah fell instantly in love. While this may be cheesy for some readers, I loved it. There was so much going on in the book, ie: danger, suspense, that I never felt their relationship too over the top. Hey, if I was Norah I’d fall in love with Ryker immediately as well. You should realize, that this is book six in the series and throughout the other books, we get glimpses into the other family members lives. So I already knew Ryker. I knew he was a great character and would be an even greater hero.

I could go on and on about this book and my love for this series. I won’t though. I want you to experience Ryker and Norah without any spoilers from me. This series does not have to be read in order. However I recommend it. You will love the quirky, protective town of Carson and it’s loyal citizens.

The burb will give you enough perspective to interest you so I won’t summarize this book in this review. All I can add here is that I loved it and I hope you will too. If you haven’t yet read this author, it’s time to change that.

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