Synopsis:

Heartbreakingly beautiful and devastatingly annoying, Timaeus Lambros, a deaf, former military translator, has just been assigned as my co-teacher for the rest of the school year.
His stupid-hot face gets on my nerves.
So does his well-fitting jeans.
Charming and gorgeous men like him should not be teachers. They should be locked away in a storage closet… with me.
But that’s just a teachers’ lounge fantasy with a big dreamy sigh attached.
Tim and I can never be a thing. He’s broody and closed off, while I’m the new owner of a one-way ticket back to Costa Rica, thanks to budget cuts.
But my Abuelita always said life wasn’t a fairytale. So even if Tim does have a magical tongue and a dreamy body, we still might not get a happily ever after.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Interpreter (Commander in Briefs #4)Interpreter by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every book in this series keeps getting better and better! Interpreter is book four but if you’ve read the series from the beginning, then you’ve already met Tim. There are so many amazing characters in this series. I’ll be honest, while I loved all the books, so far Interpreter is my favorite. Tim has had my attention for a long time and I was so impatient for his story. I’m also eager for Vic’s story too.
Kristy Marie has an incredible talent when it comes to putting pen to paper. Her books are angsty, emotional, sexy, and humorous. I truly appreciate the humor in her books because the premises are dark and even sad. Her balance of all the emotions is perfect. The attention to detail and the research that went into this book was so appreciated. I was heartbroken at times. Tim was such an intense hero. He had been through so much and his story is downright heart-rending and distressful. Tim is a strong-minded man. Also, stubborn. When he meets Milah, Tim slowly realizes that he is missing out on life by hiding away.

Milah, was the perfect heroine for Tim. She was beautiful inside and out. She instinctually knew what Tim needed and when. Rarely do you read about a heroine so attuned to her hero. They were soul-mates. Perfect together in every way.

I am so glad I got a front row seat to Tim’s happily-ever-after. It was so worth the agonizing wait! This is a series I highly recommend. Yes, Interpreter can be read as standalone but because of all the interaction with secondary characters, you’ll be eager for their stories. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

I’m sorry for not giving more details about the premise of this book but I feel you would appreciate reading all this perfection on your own.

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

Blurb
A
billionaire who wants a perfect wife…
At
thirty-five, Marcus Carelli has it all: wealth, power, and the kind of looks
that leave women breathless. A self-made billionaire, he heads one of the
largest hedge funds on Wall Street and can take down major corporations with a
single word. The only thing he’s missing? A wife who’d be as big of an
achievement as the billions in his bank account.
A cat
lady who needs a date…
Twenty-six-year-old
bookstore clerk Emma Walsh has it on good authority that she’s a cat lady. She
doesn’t necessarily agree with that assessment, but it’s hard to argue with the
facts. Raggedy clothes covered with cat hair? Check. Last professional haircut?
Over a year ago. Oh, and three cats in a tiny Brooklyn studio? Yep, she’s got
those.
And yes,
fine, she hasn’t had a date since… well, she can’t recall. But that part is
fixable. Isn’t that what the dating sites are for?
A case
of mistaken identity…
One
high-end matchmaker, one dating app, one mix-up that changes everything…
Opposites may attract, but can this last?

Synopsis:

Meet the infamous Ross, black sheep of the family and bully extraordinaire.
I drink too much, smoke too much, screw around. I’ve hurt people, been in and out of prison. I’m a bastard, a beast.
I’m a goddamn bundle of joy.
I mean, my own dad tried to kill me, what does that tell you?
Then again, my dad did kill my mom, so maybe it isn’t just me. Who the hell knows.
The world sucks and I’m giving it the finger in every damn way, except…
Except there’s a girl. Pretty. Hot. Clever. She didn’t get the memo – that she should hate me, shun me, kick me when I’m down. That the world screwed us all over. She believes in the future – and sometimes she seems to even believe in me.
Big mistake. I’m bad news. I made her suffer in the past, and nothing has changed. I’m not an angel, not a saint. No good.
But for some reason I don’t get, I can’t let her go down with me. I find myself trying to be better for her, pretending to be someone I’m not.
And if that doesn’t ring some damn big alarm bells regarding my sanity, well… then I’m done already.

* This is the story of Ross, half-brother to Octavia, Gigi and Merc, set in the Wild Men series *

📝My Review📝:

No SaintNo Saint by Jo Raven

Between 4 & 4.5 Stars.
I have been a huge fan of this author for a very long time. It needs to be said because I might be a little biased. She hasn’t written a book that I didn’t love. Her heroes are so damaged and broken. Their pasts are some of the most horrific I’ve ever read. Jo Raven is not afraid to cross boundaries. Her books are not for you if you’re looking for a sugary read. I guarantee your heart will break and you will be so angry. So, so angry for what her heroes have suffered. And in No Saint, that applies in excess. You have to wonder how these young men survive the lot life has dealt them. They survive because they are strong heroes with strong heroines who will support and love them unconditionally.

In No Saint,Ross Jones is just surviving his days and nights. This isn’t easy to do when he is constantly tormented. The bully is being bullied. We met Ross early on in the Wild Men series when we were first introduced to Octavia. This book can be read as a standalone, however, I highly recommend you read the previous books. Ross has been an important and complex part of each and knowing about who he was will help you understand him. Maybe forgive him too.

Without giving you details, I found a few circumstances in this book to be unrealistic which is why I’m between 4 & 4.5 stars. But this is just my opinion so please take this lightly and decide for yourself. In addition, I wanted to see the antagonists in this book get what they deserved on the pages and not just an afterthought at the end.

Can bullies be forgiven? Can I forgive Ross for all the suffering he has caused? I wasn’t sure that I could. Fortunately, the author painted the pictures of Ross’s past which put me front and center at his own suffering. God, I wanted to hold him and hug him to me tightly. Fortunately, Ross had Luna and after she dealt with her own anger in regards to Ross’s bullying, she helped him to heal. She became his support. Support which he desperately needed. One of the aspects I appreciated was how the author grew and developed Ross and Luna’s characters. There was a lot of pain, a lot of history between them. It took a while before Luna could forgive Ross but not before she understood him.

This book is dark and intense. Very passionate, very sad and sometimes violent. But I promise, you will sigh with great relief and happiness in the end.

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

Excerpt

“Look.” I
point at the recipe. “Flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest,
salt, almond milk, canola oil, vanilla, lemon juice, and fresh blueberries. The
streusel on top has some vegan butter in it, but that’s everything.
Promise.” 
He leans
close enough that I can smell the sharp clean scent of his body wash and
expensive aftershave. 
“Huh. Well
they’re way better than the last ones.” He practically inhales another one.
My teeth
sink into my lower lip and tug. “Um, yeah. I over-mixed those. And I didn’t
know you were supposed to mix your wet and dry ingredients separately. My mom
gave me some tips this time.” 
His eyes
drop to my mouth but I’m not sure why. Jonah doesn’t see me like that. He never
looks at my mouth. Maybe the way to his heart really is through his
stomach. 
“Can I keep
this?” He retrieves the recipe from the countertop. “I might have Erma make a
big batch for some friends of mine.”
“Mmhm.” I’m
temporarily stunned from the way he’s openly watching my mouth. Our faces are
close enough to touch. 
Erma is his
housekeeper and she’s an amazing cook. I’d be jealous of her but she’s sixty
and looks like Mrs. Doubtfire so I don’t think she’s Jonah’s type. 
“Thanks.
Don’t give the dogs any of my muffins,” he teases. 
Zeus gave
up long ago but Achilles is still staring longingly at the muffins.
He moves to
exit the kitchen and my brain resumes full function once he’s out of my
personal space. 
“Jonah, wait.” 
He turns,
his hip bones doing that sexy V thing that make my mouth water. 
“I actually
need that recipe back.” My body shifts into panic mode as he regards me warily
with the recipe in his hand. “I’ll type you up a better copy. I need to make a
few adjustments anyway and I can’t remember what website I got that one
from.” 
My heart is
racing and my words are coming out on top of one another.
Jonah’s
expression says I’m acting as crazed as I feel. 
He doesn’t
make a move to give it back. 
“Jonah,
seriously. I need that one. Please.” 
I have no
poker face. I’m practically begging and that is not like me. 
“You need it?” He cocks his head to the side,
amusement dancing in his eyes. 
For a few
seconds, I worry he’s going to pull some big brother crap on me—hold it over my
head and make me jump for it or something. I get enough of that from Mikey and
Tony. I definitely don’t need it from Jonah. 
Thankfully
he just shakes his head and starts to hand it back. 
Until his
eyes catch the writing on the back. 
“What’s
this?” He glances at me then back at the list. “Your Christmas wish list on
here, Rossi?” 
“Give it
back, Jonah. I’m serious.” I can’t breathe. 
I reach for
it and he steps backward. “Hang on a minute. I need to know what to get you for
Christmas.” 
His
eyebrows shoot up as soon as he makes out the words. His lips move as he reads.
I never noticed that before. 
I give
myself a mental slap. I’m losing sight of what’s important here. 
“Adult
toys, lingerie, and law breaking?” Jonah nods appreciatively. “Aren’t you a
busy little elf this holiday season?” 
“Shut up.
My sister-in-law wrote that. She thought it would show you that I deserve the
job.” I sigh heavily. “You’ve had your fun. Now give it back.” 
He hasn’t
made it to number six yet. 
Please, sweet baby Jesus, don’t let him make it
to number six.
“Hang on,”
he says, reaching out and keeping me at arm’s length. “What else have we got
here?” 
“Jonah!” I
make a grab for the list, swiping my hand wildly, hoping to at least tear
it. 
I miss,
catching his towel instead. 
In one
split-second, my entire universe takes a hard left. 
Jonah’s
towel falls and he is naked, holding a piece of paper that suggests I sit on
his face.

Hook Magnet New (1)

Copy of HookTeaser1 (1)

Synopsis:

Journey back to Neverland, NC with NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author Gina L. Maxwell as she turns your favorite villain into the hero you never knew you needed.

THEY CALL ME HOOK

I’m Captain of the Pirates; a villain by design and a loner by nature.

I don’t need anyone. More than that, I don’t want anyone. Especially Officer John Darling who insists on seeing the good in everything, including me. If there was ever any good inside of me, it was snuffed out long ago.

I’ve avoided him for years, but now I need his help to save my brother’s life and take down Fred Croc, the monster from my childhood and my current employer.

Now Darling is undercover in my crew, living in my loft and forever working out shirtless. Taking Croc’s operation down from the inside is dangerous as hell, but Darling’s probing gaze and the natural way he defers to my dominant side might just be the end of me.

But I’ve lived in the dark for too long, and no amount of light can save me. Not even one as bright as Johnathan Darling.

HE CALLS ME DARLING

I’m a Task Force Officer with the FBI; a protector of the innocent and a man in love with a villain.

Before I was even old enough to understand it, I had a crush on the broody teen called Captain Hook, following him around like a puppy and hoping he’d show me the slightest bit of attention.

He never did, though, not for years. Not until I became his only viable option for getting his crew member back and throwing Croc behind bars. Now he can’t ignore me, and he can’t hide the desire burning in his eyes when I sink to my knees, eager to serve my Captain however he needs.

But secrets are hard to keep in close quarters, and when I discover the darkness lurking in his past, eradicating the evil in Neverland is no longer my only mission. Come hell or high water, I’ll make Hook see that he’s never been the villain of this story…he’s the hero.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hook (Neverland #2)Hook by Gina L. Maxwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hook by Gina Maxwell was a very dark, intense and disturbing read. I will warn you….. for those of you who are triggered by child abuse of a sexual nature you may want to be extra cautious. While there is no current abuse, there are flashbacks. That said, the flashbacks are not all explicitly graphic, however the author is very talented at painting the picture regardless. There will be no mistaking what you’re reading about.

I praise Gina Maxwell for the boundaries she crosses in her writing. These details are not easy to read, so I know that are even that much more difficult to write. that being said, I read a review copy but I understand in the original finished copy has an alternate chapter.

This book brought forth many emotions the most prominent being anger, and heartbreak. So, you are probably wondering why I read such a book? Life isn’t always painted with blue skies and butterflies. Sometimes we need reminders that this world isn’t perfect. Books like Hook bring that reality into perspective. And when we are given a beautifully written, believable happy ending our feeling of joy and elation will be that much more appreciated. I praise this author for writing realistic and believable text.

Hook is one of my favorite MM romances. Hook was a character whose whole purpose in life was to protect those around him. No matter how high and despicable the cost. Hook is a criminal by trade but not by choice. He is careful not to let people too close knowing the end will result in more despair for him and those he loves.

John Darling had a connection with Hook since they were children. But it wasn’t until more than a decade later these two amazing men would be able to explore a relationship, albeit extremely carefully. I don’t want to give any of the story away. This is a book you’ll want to read without any spoilers. I don’t even want to comment on the last chapter; the ending. I will say that while I was pleased how things are going well for John and Hook, I am anxious for the next book in this series to assure me they are still going strong.

Hook is book two in Gina L. Maxwell’s Neverland series. The first book titled, Pan is Peter and Wendy’s story. It is also where we learn the dynamic of the Lost Boys, Hook and his pirates and the evil that is Fred Croc. Hook is a standalone but I think you’ll get more out of the story if you read Pan as well.

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

Don’t miss PAN, Neverland Novel #1

Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Kobo
From NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell, comes a brand-new series with a fresh twist on an old classic.

Once upon a time, in Neverland, North Carolina–I fell in love.

I was twelve when Peter first climbed up to my balcony.
Thirteen when I sneaked out to see him at the School for Lost Boys.
Seventeen when his touch made me fly,
And eighteen when his words made me cry.

We were magnetic, drawn to each other from that very first night, and what I thought would be forever. But when it came time for me to leave, he wouldn’t come with, soI left town with a map for my future and a shattered heart.

Ten years later, I’ve returned to Neverland, hoping to find a man in place of the boy.

Peter was partially right, growing up is no fun. After quitting my fancy career that sucked the magic out of life, I’m now organizing the fundraiser of the year. In a move that could make or break the event and my new company, I’ve hired Peter, master mechanic and owner of LB Automotive, to help me pull this off–trusting him to rebuild a classic car for the auction that could help hundreds of foster kids in need.

I thought I was prepared, but the boy who refused to leave is now a man hell-bent on getting me to stay, and as sparks fly between us, that undeniable fire flares back to life, deeper and hotter than ever.

But that ripped body doesn’t mean Peter’s matured enough to make us or this event work, and not everyone in Neverland is happy about my return.

Not every wound heals.
Not every heart can be fixed.
Not every boy grows up.

And after all this time, the love we found might be lost to us again…this time, forever.

Pan is an adult contemporary romance retelling of Peter Pan, complete with Wendy, Hook, Tink, and all the Lost Boys. There are no fantasy elements in this world, other than the “magic” that happens between the sheets. 😉


Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and the New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since.

When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at games to her high school sweetheart, hanging out with their adult teenagers as they learn to fly on their own, and dreaming of her move to someplace warm once they finally do.

New Release: Taboo (Secret Seductions Book One), Genre: Steamy Victorian Historical Romance by Kathleen Lawless is Available Now!

Title: Taboo
Series: Secret Seductions Book One
Author: Kathleen Lawless
Genre: Steamy Victorian Historical Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2019
Bridgeman had nothing better to do for the week than be auctioned off among a group of wealthy socialites, all of whom are no doubt as bored as he is. 
Blindfolded, he is transported to the country home of to an aloof and repressed widow.
He’s her plaything for seven days— in any capacity she chooses.
When Fallon starts to paint him, the experience catches them both off guard. 
Not only does her subject rekindle Fallon’s creativity and passion, his presence stirs up other, more primitive passions. Passions and fantasies which he is happy to indulge. Passions that refuse to subside with the final strokes of her brush or the final hours of their time together.
 
As each day ticks by, they both realize one week will never be enough. And theirs is a future than can never be.

Kathleen Lawless blames a misspent youth watching Rawhide, Maverick and Bonanza for her fascination with cowboys. Historical or contemporary, cowboys continue to resonate with her today and inspired her new historical romance series, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. 
 
Steele, in A Hard Man to Love, is a modern-day cowboy, so when she was dating on-line and met a man called Steel— While he’s not a cowboy, he is an Alpha ale and her forever hero. Which is why all of her stories end Happily Ever After.
 
Not that she can ever stick to just one genre. So many stories to tell—never enough time.
 
With close to 30 published novels to her credit, she enjoys pushing the boundaries of traditional romance into historical romance, erotic romance, romantic suspense, women’s fiction and stories for young adults.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

End GameEnd Game by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a story of young love and how a variety of obstacles are prominent in getting in the way of a happily-ever-after. End Game is separated into three parts with two epilogues. The first half of the book is full of teenage drama. I swear, I felt like I was back in high school. In my mind, I was laughing because there were quite a few connections in this book for me during that first 45%. No, I was never lucky enough to catch the attention of the star quarterback however, my true connection was with Paisley, Hailie’s friend. While this book is Connor and Hailee’s story, we get a lot of Bran and Paisley as well. Just wondering if there will be a book in the future about them after college years.

So anyway, Hailee is the daughter of a retired military man. She has two wonderful parents and two protective brothers who will do anything for her. New to town, Hailee has grabbed the attention of Connor, the handsome, popular quarterback, who just so happens to be her neighbor. I want to mention that this book is a love-at-first-sight trope. In addition, Connor is an intense, over-the-top possessive hero. First friends, the growing relationship between Connor and Hailee is extremely intense. They were both possessive of one another and overly dramatic in several ways. While the sexual tension is a steadily growing burn, Connor and Hailee take things slow.

I don’t want to say anything about how the story unfolds because as I said earlier, there is quite a bit of teenage drama and the first half of the book was a little frustrating and monotonous at times. Because of the passion and heart of the H/h, I eagerly read on and truly enjoyed the second half of the book. As the few years passed since Connor and Hailee met, new obstacles brought out their maturity and the story became more endearing to me. Less over-the-top dramatic and more real life experiences. Once you finish reading, you won’t have a single doubt that these two absolutely adore each other. Their love for one another was so powerful and I was so happy with the ending. I especially enjoyed the bonus epilogue. It gives hope when there is darkness and fear for the future. Connor and Hailee learn that time is precious and they plan to live every day to the fullest.

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