๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

This book was sweet and emotional. My heart was heavy for what was happening. Even knowing there would be a happily-ever-after, I still was worried. Faithful is book ten in The Mountain Man’s Babies series. And sadly, it is also the last. While I haven’t had the pleasure of reading them all, I have read several and enjoyed them.

I won’t go into much detail because I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for you. Jonah returns to Miracle Mountain from being in Alaska for the last year and a half. He feels it’s time to settle down. He wants what all his fellow mountain friends have. Love of a significant other, and family. Jonah is not expecting to find that so quickly but he does. And when that happens, he holds on tight and never lets go. Here is where I can’t tell you more. Not only is it emotional and quite sad, but what happens, no matter how awful, it only adds to the sweetest ending.

I have to say, as is usual for me with Frankie Love novels, I adored these characters. That said, because nothing in life is perfect, there were times I was frustrated and not a little angry at some aspects. Of course that is par for the course so I expected it. As I said earlier, my grief was non-existent by the end. I truly wish that men like Jonah existed. I think this world would be a better place. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

Going deep: In football it means running down the field for a long pass. Youโ€™re serious. Committed. Unstoppable. As a wide receiver, itโ€™s a term Iโ€™m all too familiar with. Itโ€™s who I am, at least when it comes to my career.

For the past decade, football has been the only thing Iโ€™ve allowed myself to commit to. That is until a beautiful, blue-eyed temptress steps into my limo to escort me to a charity function.

Sheโ€™s strong, independent, and quick witted. Everything I want in a woman. Thereโ€™s just one problem. Sheโ€™s not mine for the taking. But thatโ€™s not going to stop me from winning her heart.

Iโ€™m in deep with this woman. Iโ€™m running down the field with my arms and heart open, ready for the catch. Now all I need is for her to throw the ball.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

Going Deep (Imperfect Love #2)Going Deep by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!
Nikki Ash is amazing! She has quickly found a permanent place on my top ten favorite author’s list. I have never came away from one her her books disappointed. If anything, after reading her books, I want more.

So……while I absolutely loved this book, the H/h were not easy to like in the beginning chapters. Both of them treated the other horribly. Mean things were often said and many assumptions were made. Killian and Giselle are the epitome of the love/hate relationship only they didn’t know it. There is a slow development of their relationship as it grows from animosity, to tolerance, to friends to more. Of course the more is my favorite.

Killian is a pro football player and Giselle is interning at a prestigious interior design firm. While Killian is in a good place, he is not looking for a relationship. He has a story that will break your heart and give you that justification of why he acts the way her does. Killian is loyal and generous. He is sexy and and every woman’s dream man. I actually liked him better than Nick from the previous book, The Pick Up. And that says a lot because Nick is an amazing character.

Killian will become the hero that Giselle claims she doesn’t need or want. Once she lets Killian inside her heart, Giselle can finally find peace with her life and find love. Without going into details, Giselle has been going through a very difficult time in her life. She has had to make some decisions that I personally did not like. Thought I understood, and did not judge her because of it. Thankfully Killian didn’t either.

This book was really amazing and I don’t want to say too much more about it. You should enjoy it on you own. I will say that if you haven’t read this author yet, You are truly missing out on some very talented writing.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thant you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

What happens when a woman falls in love with her stalker?

I’m not the type of woman who actually inspires passion in any guy, much less one who makes it a habit to watch me because he’s obsessed.

I’m a curvy, plain Jane. I like my chips, chocolate, and junk food, and it definitely shows.

I’m an educated geek who would rather have my nose in a computer instead of a fashion magazine.

But none of those things seem to matter to Stalker. He sees something in me that I don’t see in myself, and I don’t know why.

I’m terrified, yet I’m inexplicably intrigued.

I’m cautious by nature, but something makes me want to know who he is, and why he gives a sh*t about somebody like me.

I know falling for a man I’ve never seen in the light of day is dangerous.

Does he stalk me because he wants to own me, control me, and make me into the woman he thinks that I am?

Does he want to hurt me, or is he just a lost soul like me?

And why did it feel so good to touch him under the cover of darkness?

Is he my nightmare or my dearest stalker?

Getting to know him might be foolish, but for some reason, I just can’t walk away…

Author’s note: This is a red-hot, sexy, curvy girl serial romance with an obsessed, alpha male stalker. Read at your own risk. The stories will come out in quick succession so you won’t have to wait long for the conclusion.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

Dearest Stalker: A Complete CollectionDearest Stalker: A Complete Collection by Lane Parker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars
The boxset of Dearest Stalker contains four parts. Having this available in this form is great because you have all four parts of the book in one place. When I first learned of Dearest Stalker, only parts one and two were available so I decided to wait on the completion of the story. I am not a fan of cliffhangers and avoid them usually. I kept checking this authorโ€™s Goodreads page to keep on top of when the last two parts were released. And oh, what I happy day it was to get an email from Parker Laneโ€™s PA who asked if I would be interested in reading the box set. Wellโ€ฆduhโ€ฆno brainer there.

Each of the four parts is around 50 or so pages long. When I started reading, I couldnโ€™t put it down. The pace of the story is pretty fast. In addition to that fact, I devoured the story so eager to get to the end. After the first part, the rest of the story was predictable with the one exception. I knew the s*it would hit the fan, but wasnโ€™t sure how the author would take us there.

Kate has a stalker. She has had a stalker for the four years she was in college. Working on a degree, Kate wants to work in technical engineering. Her dream job is to one day work for the Blackwood company and be part of the technology that successfully creates robotic surgery. Kateโ€™s stepbrothers are Blackwoods. Since she was estranged from her father, she does not know her stepbrothers very well. As the story progresses with each part, Kate becomes closer to the Blackwoods AND her stalker who is always there watching. I will tell you now that this is not a creepy stalker story. As I said earlier, I donโ€™t want to ruin any of the story so youโ€™ll just have to read it on your own. I definitely recommend this boxset.

The characters are wonderful. All of them. There is a complexity to both Kate and her stalker. Also, there is definitely character development. Also, this book is angsty and emotional. Itโ€™s sexy and intimate and you canโ€™t help but to love everything about it. I really enjoyed this gem.

Even betterโ€ฆโ€ฆat the end of the book we get a glimpse of the next book which will feature Ben Blackwood and Kateโ€™s friend, Ariel. Canโ€™t wait for that one. At this point Iโ€™m not sure if it will be one book or in parts. If it is in parts, I guess Iโ€™ll just have to be patient, lol.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love couple in bed

Synopsis:

โ€œYou may be faking the relationship, but youโ€™re not faking the orgasms.โ€

Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood bedroom in the town she couldnโ€™t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year. Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students? Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principalโ€™s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibiโ€”for a price. The Deal: Heโ€™ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship. Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But itโ€™s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. Thereโ€™s too much history. Rock bottom canโ€™t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it? Warning: Story also includes a meet-puke, a bouffanted nemesis, a yard swan and donkey basketball, a teenage-orchestrated makeover, and a fake relationship that gets a little too real between the sheets.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

Rock Bottom GirlRock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever read a book that you could relate to so well that it gave you anxiety? Rock Bottom Girl did that for me. I believe there are four types of high school experiences. One being you loved high school and everything about it. The second being you absolutely hated it. The third being you pretended you loved it when you actually hated it. And finally, the fourth being you have both good and bad experiences. That’s me. I fall into the fourth category with a touch of the third. High school was not great for me in freshman year. I wasn’t bullied but I had a hard time trying to find my place. I ended up making friends that were not great in the way of role models. But thankfully, by my sophomore year, I knew who I was and who my true friends were. Unfortunately, there were not many of those. That said, I watched so many kids being bullied. Marley was familiar. There were so many Marleys in my high school. Unfortunately, there were more Amie Jo’s than I could count. I was more than thankful to not be on their radars.

As I read through this book, the angst just kept building. I really didn’t know how Marley’s life would turn out. And while she was very stubborn in her way of thinking, I understood her. There were many predictable moments that made me cringe and laugh at the same time.

Marley was that bullied girl in HS. I seriously don’t understand how she remained a decent person after all she had been through. I loved her character. She may have thought herself weak but Marley was anything but. When she moves back to her hometown after losing yet another job, broke and broken up with her boyfriend, Marley is at that place we call
โ€œrock bottom.โ€ Sometimes we need to hit that place in our lives to find a new perspective. Marley will take a temporary job as a gym teacher and soccer coach. Warily accepting this job, Marley will soon find out that this was the new direction her life needed. Nothing will come easy though. Marley admits to being afraid to return to HS even if she is an adult now. And sadly, she will have to deal with the school bully once again as this antagonist is a fellow teacher.

Of course, the bad boy of her youth still gets her blood pumping. There is also a story there but I won’t go into details. Marley’s journey, while angsty, is pure hysterics. Gosh, I laughed so much and so often through this book. My daughter thought I was crazy because of my loud bouts of laughter.

While this book brought back some less than pleasant HS moments, the author did a magnificent job in giving me new memories. Even if they aren’t mine, I got to experience them. I canโ€™t say enough good things about this book and I’m so afraid that I haven’t done it justice in my review. This was actually the first book I ever read by Lucy Score. I am a huge fan now. If she writes all her books with this many feels, I am going to be a very happy reader!

I highly recommend this book to everyone. There is love, romance, a fake relationship, a hero donkey, and more laughter than my stomach muscles could take.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 itโ€™s time to put away the disguise and shine.

Cade Kipling canโ€™t believe the beautiful woman that emerges from the cocoon of overalls and over sized glasses. If he wasnโ€™t dead set on taking a few months to get his head on straight, after his long time abusive girl-friend dumped him, heโ€™d be after Summer in a heartbeat.

Two weeks of dating will either kill them or change their lives forever.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

Thereโ€™s nothing richer than a second chance in the steamy second book of New York Times bestselling author J.S. Scottโ€™s Accidental Billionaires series.

Aiden Sinclair was a commercial fisherman before he suddenly came into his billionaire inheritanceโ€”not that heโ€™s complaining. Being a Sinclair does have its perks. But things were simpler before the money. He may have been dirt poor, but he loved his job and fully intended to always come back from the sea to his girlfriend, Skye Weston, so they could move toward something more permanent. Or at least that had been the plan . . . until he returned from a two-month fishing trip to discover that she had moved away and was marrying somebody else. It tore his world apart.

Now Skyeโ€™s back in town after nearly a decade. Sheโ€™s a single mother and just as beautiful as ever. However, for some odd reason, she appears to hate him, when it should be Aiden who wants nothing to do with the woman who dumped him. Unfortunately, more than nine years of separation has done nothing to put a damper on their white-hot chemistry when theyโ€™re together. But even if those feelings are real, Skye has been keeping secrets. The truth of the past is about to come to light, and there is so much more at stake than just Aidenโ€™s heart.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

Entangled (The Accidental Billionaires, #2)Entangled by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say? This was a 5 star read for me. This author writes a lot of Billionaire romances. And from what I can tell quite a few of them are interconnected in some way. The Billionaires in this series are “accidental billionaires.” These Sinclair siblings grew up poor and struggled in many ways. I did not actually read book one prior to reading this one. Entangled is a standalone. That said, while you can definitely follow along, I did have some questions regarding the details of how this group of Sinclairs became billionaires. I will definitely be back-reading to get my answers.

So, this is a second chance romance with a lot of emotional baggage. Aiden and Skye were a couple for a very brief time when she was eighteen and he was 5/6 years older. Aiden left on an eight week fishing trip, looking forward to his return when he could work on his future with Skye. Unfortunately, Skye was gone when he returned and Aiden was heartbroken. Here is where I tell you that you will have to read this on your own. I can tell you there are misunderstandings, a lot of rampant emotions and a sweet happily-ever-after.

I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and flowed nicely. I definitely will read more from this author!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

Friends forever. Chase Kipling and his twin brother Cade have been best friends with Katie since grade school. They hang out together all the time, riding horses, playing cards, going to movies and sporting events. A fun friendship for all three of them. Until a new guy in town mentions what a sexy woman she is. Chase sees red at the comment, how dare some guy lust after his best friend. Sure, sheโ€™s beautiful and sexy and has a great laughโ€ฆ and now his eyes are opened and thereโ€™s no turning back.

Katie Jackson has known Chase since first grade, sheโ€™s had a crush on him since middle school, and loved him since, well, probably forever. But heโ€™s got her firmly in the friend zone and she has no idea how to change that. Or if she even wants to risk changing it. After all friends is better than nothing. Isnโ€™t it?

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

Tempting ChaseTempting Chase by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tempting Chase is book three in this series. As with the two previous books in the series, the author does a good job pulling you into the story. This book was a bit different that the previous two because the majority of the book takes place in town since that is where Katie lives and works. This book ha a bit of suspense but nothing to eventful or angst. In fact, I enjoyed the light suspense aspect in this book very much.

Chase and his twin brother Cade have been friends with Katie since childhood. Their friendship has always been platonic and both brothers are protective of her. But there has never been any romantic feelings. That is until a comment made by another man, shines a new light on Katie where Chase is concerned. After twenty years of friendship, Chase is seeing Katie in a whole new light. Predictably, he doesn’t know what to do with his new feelings. Katie has no problem showing him what to do. She has loved him for so long. When she finally makes the decision to “go fo it,” Chase is not prepared. I loved watching these two together. I believed their attraction. The chemistry between Chase and Katie was scorching and when they finally acted on their attraction, it was perfect.

From that point on, the story moves very quickly. Chase will make some mistakes in which a lot of groveling is involved. I actually loved that part. The grand gestures from flawed heroes are some of my favorite aspects of romance novels and this one did not disappoint.

Without saying anything more, I will tell you that I truly liked this book. Chase has been one of many favorite characters from when we meet him in the first book. His twin brother Cade’s book is going to be my next read and I can’t wait to see how that one turns out.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:

There are five brothers. Each one of them have killer good looks. One is engaged to her best friend. That leaves four to flirt with, four hot men, so why does she only have eyes for the oldest grumpiest one in the bunch. Rachel Reardon has to question her own sanity when sheโ€™s enthralled with a man she can hardly stand to speak to. A first-class jerk and sexy as sin.

Adam Kipling canโ€™t believe his bad luck when his soon-to-be sister-in-lawโ€™s best friend arrives. She is smoking hot and too damn young for him. He has responsibilities as the oldest sibling and they do not include flirting with young women.

There isnโ€™t enough land on this Colorado ranch to keep them far enough apart. An explosion of some sort is inevitable.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“:

ย Taming AdamTaming Adam by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute story.
This is the second book in this series. Just like book one, this was a steady paced book. The author does a great job with word building, scene setting, etc. I had a great picture in my mind of the ranch, mountains; all of it.

I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first, however the ending was not what I was anticipating; it was abrupt and lacked the grand gesture I assumed would be coming. I really expected more and when that ending came, I was disappointed. Other than those last few pages, I enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read the next brother’s story. The characters in these books are endearing and you just can’t help wanting to make sure they have their happy endings.

Rachel is visiting the ranch to help her best friend Alyssa plan her up coming wedding to Beau. In addition, Rachel will be photographing just about everything. Since she will be staying at the ranch for three months, she has plenty of time to take all the photos she wants. And there is also plenty of time to fall for the oldest Kipling brother, Adam. Adam was portrayed as a stick-in-the-mud, by -the-book type of guy. Despite being gorgeous, well-built and his smile could bring any woman to her knees, Adam’s attitude was not attractive. There were several moments where Rachel had to put him in his place. I enjoyed those moments very much.

I don’t want to go into any details because once Adam decides he can’t fight his attraction to Rachel any longer, things progress quickly, get a bit angsty, and then resolve quickly.

Do I recommend this book? I do. I especially recommend it to those that love cowboy romances. Taming Adam was a sweet story with very little in the way of angst or suspense. There were a few issues of suspense but they were resolved without drama. All in all, a cute story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Synopsis:
Lessons From A One Night Stand

If youโ€™re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new bossโ€”the school principalโ€”in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, hereโ€™s a few takeaways based on my experience…

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.

Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.

Lesson Three: Find out why sheโ€™s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

Lesson Four: Donโ€™t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when youโ€™re sent to the principalโ€™s office.

Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.

Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this oneโ€”itโ€™s the most important of them all.
Donโ€™t fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.

๐Ÿ“My Review๐Ÿ“: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

This just might be my new favorite Piper Rayne book! What great opener to this series!
I am so excited that this series has so many siblings. That just means more fun and flirty books! I have read almost every book from this author due and they never disappoint. Their books are humorous with a touch of angst and even a bit of suspense. While this book focuses on Austin and Holly, we are introduced to so many endearing secondary characters. I can’t wait for those books. Another aspect of this author is they don’t keep us waiting. There is never a long time lapse between books.

Austin is the oldest of the Bailey siblings. Nine years ago he put his baseball career on hold to come home and help raise his younger siblings along side his sister Savannah. Sadly their parents died and he needed to step up. Austin never regretted coming home and not pursuing his dreams of baseball. However, the last of the Bailey siblings will graduate at the end of the current school year and Austin wants to leave his hometown to pursue a baseball coaching position at a California University. This has been his dream for so long. But Austin will learn the hard way that dreams can change and he doesn’t have to leave town to pursue them.

Holly has moved to Alaska to take a job as principal at the high school Austin works at. It is only a temporary job but Holly doesn’t mind that because becoming the new principal was just the step she needed to find answers. You’ll have to read the book to find out all the details. I will say their first moments in the book were hilarious AND awkward. So great!

There is a lot of fun and humor in this book. But there are some sad elements too. Of course, there are miscommunications and some angst to balance the story out. In addition to having so much fun reading Lessons From A One Night Stand, it was believable. I never once doubted the chemistry and growing love between Austin and Holly. Even if they didn’t see it right away, as a reader I did!

Totally recommend this as a must read!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚ย
