Synopsis:

Holly Thompson was struggling to get by. Between trying to pay her bills and taking care of her six-year-old niece, she worried if she’d have enough money for their next meal.

But when she saw an ad in the paper, she realized maybe there was light at the end of the tunnel.


Bryant Sommers was a hotshot NHL player. He had everything anyone could want, even though he had no one to share it with. And he was happy with that.

But he had to prove to his manager that he was committed in all aspects of his life—including being in a relationship.

That’s where Holly came in.

What started out as a business arrangement turned into so much more.

And now all he could think about was claiming Holly.

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📝:

Eggnog Makes Her Easy (Boys of the Big Easy)Eggnog Makes Her Easy by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars
I have been reading this author for a while now. I’ve always loved her books. As far as talent goes, she is a wonderful storyteller and always has me engaged in her books. This was actually my first book in the Boys of the Big Easy series. I definitely want to read the rest of the series. There are so many wonderful characters.

This story was so adorable and sexy at the same time. Lindsey and Matt have been married for ten years and have two young children, both boys. Matt is actively enlisted in the military, and the truth is he is away more than he is home. I’ll say right here that Lindsey is a one-in-million heroine. Not many women would be able to handle the absence of the man they love for most of the time they’ve been married. Lindsay never knows when Matt is going to be home or how long he is able to stay. I truly felt bad for Lindsey. This was not your typical romance. And I’ll admit, I expected more with the ending of this book. So, yes, I was a little disappointed after reading the last page. I just wanted more of the book and more for Lindsey and Matt as a couple. I don’t want to say much more; you’ll just have to read for yourself. I would like to add that my feelings about how the book ended is 100% a matter of preference and not based on the author’s talent for writing.

Because this is a fast-paced novella, I don’t want to give any details away. You can easily read this book in under a couple of hours. One more thing I would like to add, is after I finished reading this story, the characters stayed in my thoughts for very long time afterward. I just wish things would have been more easy for Lindsey and Matt. But one thing is for sure, their love was realistic and believable. I absolutely adored them as a couple. I respected them as well!

As I said earlier, I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I absolutely recommend Egg Nog Makes Her Easy as a must read for the holidays. It will fill you with such emotions; your heart will be bursting with so many different feelings.

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

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Title: Cards of Love: Queen of Wands, Author: Suzanne Halliday, Genre: Romance (novella) ~ Available Now!

Title: Cards of Love: Queen of Wands
Author: Suzanne Halliday
Genre: Romance (novella)
Release Date: October 26, 2018
Life is unpredictable and what the cards read for each of us changes like the weather forecast.
When David Allyn’s daughter asked him to stop at a specialty store for her, he thought it would be a simple errand. Fate had other plans.
 
Clueless about mysticism, magic, and fantasy; he wasn’t quite sure what to make of a store that carried tarot cards, cupid sprinkles, and mystical looking decor. The Queen of Wands store was only half as fascinating as it’s owner, Micki Davies.
Gold Star widow Micki Davies is the breath of fresh air David didn’t realize he needed. The quirky, free-spirited shop owner fascinates him like no one ever has.
 
Humor, instant attraction, and the kind of desire that leaves them both weak in the knees join together with destiny to weave a charming tale of love at every age.

Trusting his instinct, he picked up one of the Egyptian looking bottles and peered at the hand-letteredtag dangling from a ribbon tied around the neck.
“Horny Toad,” he murmured softly.
He felt the soft giggle before he heard it.
A mellifluous voice hypnotized his senses. “Horny Toad. Interesting choice. Complicated formula. Has to be brewed on the night of the new moon.”
David moved in slow motion, turning his head toward the voice. The hand that held the bottle froze in midair.
“I’d have figured you for this.” An elegant hand with dark red nails reached into the tower and extracted a squat bottle with a yellow top. “Cupid Crystals. Sprinkle in some coffee and see what happens!”
She was standing so close he could hear her breathing. Their eyes met, and the planet stopped spinning.
The hippie woman from earlier had bright azure blue eyes beneath real eyebrows—not that stuff women drew on.  She was smiling. Laugh lines suggested a woman who appreciated life.
Feeling tongue-tied, he was momentarily overcome by the unfamiliar reaction.
“It’s sugar-free.” She laughed.
He found his voice because the sound of hers was enough to make him agree to walk like an ape-man if it meant she’d keep talking.
“Vegan?” he asked with an arched brow.
She cracked up laughing. Hefelt like Judd Nelson at the end of TheBreakfast Clubwith a triumphant fist in the air.
“May I offer you a hand?” she asked. Her voice held a gentle, soothing softness. “I can take those things up to the register if you’d like.”
He blinked. That was it.
“It’s okay,” she assured him with a chuckle. “This is my store.”
“You’re the Queen of Wands?” he asked.
Her whole face brightened. The eyes regarding himhad sweeping lashes. Azure sparkles shot from her expression.

 

“Yes! That’s me.” She curtseyed like a lady-in-waiting, and he was charmed beyond belief. “I’m Michele Davies, Head Wand Mistress,” she said with her hand out in welcome. “Micki to my friends.”

Prologue


Lillian
 
After
It’s finally time.
I grab one of the dull pencils from the tray and a piece of paper from the stack and place it down in front of me. Biting my lip, I stare wistfully at the sheet, wondering what I should write. If I should even write anything.
There are so many things I want to say, so much I have to explain, but none of the words in my head will suffice. She’ll never understand. She’s too innocent to know the truth.
So I opt for something else instead. Something familiar and loving, so she’ll know how much I care.
“Are you gonna start or what?” the woman across the shoddy table says while glaring at me.
I look up from my paper and gaze blankly ahead. “As soon as I know what to write.”
“You don’t get much time, y’know,” she adds, shrugging. “Suit yourself.”
I nod a few times. Advice is best not taken for granted, so I pick up the pencil and rub my lips together.
Dear Daisy,
You’ll probably never read this letter, but I want you to know that at least I tried. I’ve told your auntie Dana to hold onto the letters I send her until I get the chance to hand them to you myself. As much as I want to, I can’t be with you right now. But I promise it won’t be long. I’ll be with you again soon. Before you even know it.
I know you’ll be good. I know you’ll do great out there in the world.
And you know … I will find you again.
Love,
Mommy
Smiling, I read over the words again before my letter and those of all the other women next to me are taken by the guard as she passes us.
They’ll read the contents and decide whether it’s suitable to send.
This is how it always goes … here in prison.
There’s no choice to make, no autonomy whatsoever. Nothing but sleep, eat, work, and wait.
Wait until your time is up.
Until you can see your baby again.
But I knew the consequence when I did what I did. That I’d end up sacrificing precious time I could’ve spent with her. But it was the only choice I could make, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I had to.
It’s no one’s fault. Not mine or his.
Circumstances brought me here, and I accept that wholeheartedly.
Love … is what brought me here.
I made the ultimate sacrifice for my little girl.
For a man I couldn’t stop loving even when that same love ripped her away from me.
For both … I’d willingly hang.

Crystal Cove Can Make It Scary To Be Single

Cari King isn’t exactly afraid to be alone–it’s all she knows after all. Despite an idyllic setting where romance blooms, her leading men are limited to the slasher heroes in her favorite horror flicks. At least Freddy, Jason and even Michael can’t slash her heart to pieces.

Mason Myers has other plans for her heart–like owning it. They flirt like fumbling teenagers each time Cari comes to rent movies from his video store. Halloween is their favorite holiday so Mason plans an epic movie-a-thon. Scary movies and popcorn with just the two of them. Every night. All month long. Scary Smart.

📝My Review📝:

Scary Single (A Crystal Cove Holiday #9)Scary Single by Dee Ellis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…
Such a short, sexy, sweet and dirty feel good story!
Oh this book was adorable! As I think about it, I don’t know how I can say it’s adorable when there are some incredibly steamy scenes in there. So hot, I was blushing. That is when I wasn’t smiling and giggling. Yes, I said giggling. Don’t know if the author categorizes this book as a romcom, but I found many moments to be refreshing and amusing.

Mason and Cari…..
Mason and Cari grew up together and spent a lot of time at the movies watching their favorite genre of horror flicks. As friends. They had a special bond from the very beginning. Unfortunately this is one of those stories where either character was afraid to admit their true feelings concerned they might ruin their relationship dynamic if the other didn’t feel the same.

Mason’s heart broke when Cari left Crystal Cove for college and to pursue a career in filmmaking. He regrets not asking her to stay, or asking if he could follow her. Years pass and Cari returns to the magical, romantic town of Crystal Cove. Will Mason finally make a move?

When Cari starts to spend a lot of time in Mason’s store, he wonders about what could have been. With a little push from his brass, take-no-prisioners cousin, Shelby, Mason asks for a date. But it’s not just any date. They will have a horror movie marathon each night leading up to Halloween.

There are some bumps in the road for these two sweet characters and even a miscommunication here and there. But they work it out. And the epilogue is perfect!

Scary Single is a short and quick read. Literally, I finished this book in a couple of hours. That said, this book is hot and dirty and the intimacy between Mason and Cari is scorching. Because it is so short and straight to the point, there really isn’t a lot of complexity or character development which I expect in novellas. That said, this is one of my favorite books in the Crystal Cove Holidays series. I highly recommend this sexy, spooky little gem.

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. 🙂

Knox Kinkaid is all about the visuals. How his growing hotel empire looks, how he looks in the mirror and yeah, how he looks pleasing the women in his life. Too bad proof of such visuals–his phone filled with selfies and yes, videos–gets lost. Or so, he thinks. After Ella offers to return it, he does not expect to find the visuals she leaves him.

Once he does, Knox knows he has to have Just One Night with Ella.

**Warning this is a super steamy one-night-stand becoming something-more romance novella. Quick, fast and hard. Panty melting. Kindle igniting. You have been warned!**

MY REVIEW:

 Just One Night (A Tantalizing Trope Novella Book #2)Just One Night by Dee Ellis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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. 🙂
