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. 🙂

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 fairytale. 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.

 

*This is a guaranteed HEA, no cheating, hot baby daddy action. It’s a
standalone novella part of a duet. Due to adult situations and sexual
content, it’s recommended for readers over the age of 18. I hope you enjoy
this lighthearted romcom.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

books with sexy times and loves writing them even more. Nicky is a ninja,

candy then Nicky is your girl.

Synopsis:

We vowed forever. What we got was two years.
But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.
She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.
Again.
A filthy oil-rig roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my everything. My heart. My obsession. And one year ago, they told me another man took her away from me.

…I just found out that was bulls**t. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Her family never thought I was good enough for her – the wrong side of the tracks, and too rough and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her, and her from me. But now that I know the truth?

Well, now I’m coming back for what’s mine.

I’m twice the man I was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer? Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.

The people that took her from me think they can keep us apart.

…They’re dead f-ing wrong.

A year ago, I thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking back my bride.

And I’ll burn the whole world down to get her if I have to.

Looking for a ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one and only? You’re in the right place!

This one’s equal parts sweeter than sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up ;).

As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

📝My Review📝:

Taking Back His BrideTaking Back His Bride by Madison Faye

3.5 Stars
This book was short, sexy, sweet and to the point!
Since I’ve been reading a lot of romantic suspense lately, I was looking for something short with a sexy, possessive alpha. I totally found that with Taking Back His Bride. Just be warned there is no substance to this book other than a man obsessed with getting back his wife and a whole lot of dirt. But it was just what I needed at the time.

Because Brooks has been overseas on a drilling rig he could do nothing when he got the news that his beautiful wife, Leanna, divorced him. After a year goes by and Brooks had made a fortune, he comes back for his wife. Of course when he finds her, and all is revealed, and much manipulation and deceit are the culprits. I won’t give details because like I said, this book is a super quick read. But I will say that while this book contains a dirty talking, possessive alpha, I thought Brooks was so sweet too.

I do wish we got to see Leanna and Brooks when they met and married instead of jumping three years but still, a good book.

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

📝5 Stars📝
Oh wow! This was another amazing book by one of my favorite authors. Jo Raven has a talent for writing that is so unique. No other author I have read, tortures their heroes like she does. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to watch a character suffer and be able to do nothing but read faster to get to the HEA. Jo raven writes from the heart and amazes me constantly.

If you’ve read Dark Child then you know of Griffin and Sophie. And while you do not have to read that book prior to Strength, I recommend you do because there are quite a few mentions that might make the book even more enjoyable for you.

Griffin is going through dark times. Not only does he suffer from PTSD, there is an issue with his health. My heart broke for this man over and over. In addition to his self-loathing, Griffin believes himself unworthy of Sophie’s love. Sophie was an amazing, strong character. She was just what Griff needed to help him heal. Sophie would teach this tortured man how to love as well.

I can go on but that would mean I’d have to give you details and since I refuse to ruin this book for you, you will have to read it on your own. I promise if you are already a fan of Jo’s, she won’t let you down. And if you haven’t read anything by her yet, I absolutely recommend that you do!

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

SYNOPSIS:

The holidays are not jolly this year. After losing my job, they’re downright depressing. It’s all good, I take that big lump of coal, and turn it into an opportunity to get my homemade soaps into Mountain Goat Resort. I just need to convince Graham Steele, the owner. If I can nail this deal, everything will be merry and bright. Things veer out of control when I end up nailing a sexy stranger at the resort the night before my big meeting. Before I know it, I’ve got a fake fiancé and twelve days to spend pretending with his family. I’m definitely going on the naughty list this year, and Graham Steele put me there.

📝MY REVIEW📝:

Graham: A Holiday RomanceGraham: A Holiday Romance by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars! Wow! I loved this book so much! It was way too short and I was not ready to say goodbye to Graham and Zoe. Their story needs to continue. *Note: There is a happy ending!

Logan Chance does it again! I am never disappointed with one of his books. This time, he gifts us with a sweet, sexy Christmas romance depicting the fake fiancé trope. While there are no surprises in this book, I was still blown away by how much I enjoyed it. I said it before, I’ll say it again…Graham was too short and by the last page I was desperate for more. That said, there is potential to revisit with these characters should this author wish to do so.

Graham is a Grinch and Zoe is Christmas personified. When these two meet for the first time, it is very brief. The second time they meet results in a one night stand. From that moment on, Graham and Zoe find it difficult to keep away from each other. Without giving away anything more than what the burb states, Graham and Zoe end up engaged.

Even though it was easy to predict what was going to eventually happen, I still found myself engaged and loving every minute of this 98 page gem. I absolutely recommend this book. If you haven’t grabbed it yet, do it quick. You’ll enjoy it even more if you read it before the holidays are over.

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

Synopsis:

Hayden:

For the last decade, I’ve had the same crazy Christmas dream every holiday season.
It’s lovely, happy, sensual, and it’s total bullsh*t because there is no man like my dream man out there for me.
Luckily, the sexy dream only happens once a year, because if it happened more than that, it would be depressing, a constant reminder of what I have in reality.
In real life, I was just dumped by the latest loser in my life, a man who was just using me for my money, and a roof over his head.
Good riddance, right?
But things aren’t really all that simple.
Problem is, I don’t feel like I’m worthy of anything better because I’m a big girl, and I like my food if you know what I mean.
So I made a bargain with myself to stay away from men and dating completely for at least a year to give myself a break, and to try to find my self-esteem after dating a string of men who just didn’t want…me.
I thought that promise I made to myself would be easy to keep, and it was…until I met Jackson Gillette in Galveston while I was hiding out in my beach house licking my wounds from so many bad relationships.
Jackson is a gorgeous, drool-worthy kind of guy. In other words, he was trouble.
Men like him did not date women like me.
But when I realized that there’s so much more to Jackson than the eye can see, do I dare take a chance on realizing my Christmas dream?
After all, he might just be exactly what I want from Santa this year.

Author Note: If you’re looking for a traditional, sweet Christmas romance, you might want to move on. This is a sexy, panty melting, fantastical Christmas romance that’s heavily rolled in sugar sweet enough to satisfy your craving for Christmas cookies, with a big dose of Christmas magic. If that sounds like a great holiday reading to you, then dig in and enjoy!!

My Review:

A Christmas DreamA Christmas Dream by Lane Parker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!
Each Christmas season I excitedly add (more than I can read) Christmas romances to my TBR. Do I get through them all? Unfortunately, no. But that’s okay because the ones I don’t get to are usually first on my reading list for next time. The trouble I always get myself into is that I take on more than I can handle this time of year. I’m not only talking about reading, reviewing and blogging. You see, me and my family do up the holiday in excess. I find myself being stretched in different directions to please my family and meet my obligations. That said, I am so happy I had time to read this book now, rather than wait. While many aspects were predictable (and that is not a bad thing here), this book had something more. A premise I have never experienced and for that I commend this author. Of course, I can’t tell you anything because that would be just cruel on my part. I am not a spoiler. Thought I will absolutely tell you I highly recommend this precious, short, sweet and very sexy Christmas romance.

Lane Parker has a unique talent for her storytelling. I enjoyed her writing style and how easily the writing flowed. The pace was so smooth that the end of the book hit me before I knew it. I was definitely not ready to say goodbye to Jackson and Hayden. And hopefully, I’ll be able to revisit with them in the next book which I assume features Jackson’s brother and Hayden’s sister. I will definitely be looking out for that!

If you’re looking for a Christmas romance that is a breath of fresh air, unique and will leave you with a sigh and a smile…..I highly recommend A Christmas Dream by Lane Parker AKA JS Scott.

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