We’re friends. Neighbors. Our lives are linked through disaster, fear and pain.
I love them all. Not sure I can live without them. Can we just stay friends?

I can’t choose.
Don’t want to choose.

My Review:

Broken CompassBroken Compass by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

This is honestly the best book I have read this year thus far! First, I will say I have been a die hard fan of Jo’s from her first release and I look forward to every new book she writes. Second, I will say that I have never read an author that even comes close to totally annihilating my heart the way she does. The best part is she puts my broken pieces back together. Jo has never, ever disappointed me and I know she never will. Her writing talent is just absolutely amazing. Jo will cross boundaries; she is not afraid to torture her characters. I have never read characters like hers. If you are currently a fan of this author, than you know exactly what I’m trying to say. If you aren’t, hold on for the literary ride of your life.

To all my friends…I would never steer you wrong. This book is amazing! This author is amazing!

While all Joe’s books are stand-alones, they all interconnect some how. There is always a familiar name or place mentioned.

Broken Compass is a new adult reverse harem. And while there are plenty of well-written sexy moments, this book is about so much more. The epitome of unconditional love and support. The development of their unconventional relationship is not rushed. That said, the tension and chemistry between these amazing characters is present on every page.

This book is separated into a few parts starting when the characters are sixteen years old and follows their circumstances for a few years. There are occasional time jumps here and there but nothing that left me lost or changed the steady pace of the book. As there are four main characters, there are four plot lines. While they are all tied together for a more than well deserved happily ever after, each character has their own suffering as well as their suffering and concern for the others.

Sydney, Kash, Nate, and West…..

Sydney is the glue that holds this bunch together. She was so young but at the same time, an old soul. They were only sixteen but years of abuse left them seeming much older. I’m sorry I can’t tell you more about what each character went through individually because I don’t give spoilers. However, if you have questions, you can message me because I can tell you there are many triggers. This book has many tragic moments. I promise there is a happy ending, so keep that in mind as you read. Even if you wonder how there can be a happy ending, I promise you Jo Raven does not leave you hanging.

West, Nate, and Sydney live in the same apartment complex and are friends. Kash moves in and their dynamic starts to slowly change. From the first page, I couldn’t get to the end of this book fast enough. With four main characters having their own issues you might worry about the author keeping your attention. Fear not! I couldn’t put this book down once I started it.

While this is my absolute honest review, I can’t claim it to be completely unbiased. Jo Raven is my favorite author and it is because her writing is absolutely amazing and every one of her books left me with the worst book hangovers ever.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review! 🙂

Review For: HIS (MMF Bisexual Holiday Menage Romance) by Chloe Lynn Ellis

33382453

Cover Rating:  3.5

Genres:  Romance, Adult, Erotica, MMF, Christmas

Published:  December 12, 2016

Read:  January 12, 2017

Standalone Holiday Novella 138 pages

Told in 1st person POVs by all three H/H/h

Synopsis:

Luke Anders. Possessive. Demanding. He always gets what he wants…

“A beautiful woman, blindfolded and gasping… it takes a very special kind of person to meet my needs. A person I can make utterly mine.”

Aiden Campbell. Guarded. Lonely. He’s been hurt before…

“He’s more than I ever thought I’d have. More than I deserve. He makes me feel safe and taken care of, like I’m worth belonging to someone.”

Ginny Lawson. Sexy. Single. She’s hard to satisfy…

“Oh my God, I’m actually falling for them. For both of them. Together, they’re everything I need. They’re perfect for me.”

No one should be alone at Christmas.

One man is looking for someone to make his own, two people want the kind of love that they’ve never been able to find alone, but it’s not until all three come together that they find everything they never knew they needed… each other.

My Review:

His: MMF Bisexual Holiday Menage RomanceHis: MMF Bisexual Holiday Menage Romance by Chloe Lynn Ellis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

HIS (MMF Bisexual Holiday Menage Romance) is by author Chloe Lynn Ellis.
My Rating: 5

So sad the holiday season is behind us. But that doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through the vast amount Christmas romances available. And I did just that with HIS.

This romance features three characters; all with different personalities, coming together in this sweet and intimate story.

Luke Anders…He is definitely an alpha with a gentle as well as domineering side. Luke has never been afraid to go after what he wants. Even if it falls out of the realm of conventional. Especially when these “things” bring him the utmost in satisfaction and pleasure. This is why he is intrigued when he meets a man and discovers he is attracted to him. Luke always thought of himself as heterosexual. Was he disturbed by this realization?

“I’ve always been one to indulge my curiosity, to seek out the best life has to offer. Why let a little thing like gender get in the way of that?”

In addition, Luke is equally attracted to a beautiful waitress, Ginny. Oh well…..the more the merrier. 😉

Aiden Campbell…He is a cautious and wary man thanks to a cruel and bigoted family. When a sexy, handsome man comes to the store Aiden works in and asks for help with his Christmas shopping list, he is more than eager to “assist.” But Aiden will keep a respective distance in fear of more rejection. Surprisingly when Luke befriends Aiden, he suspects Luke might be interested in being more than friends. It’s like a dream come true, to be wanted. Yet Aiden is still wary. I felt so sad for him. I wished I could jump into the pages and wrap him in a warm hug. Aiden was such a gentle character. He was sweet and tender and to Luke’s utter delight, submissive. And when Ginny enters the mix, Aiden is hopeful his dreams of being cared for and loved are within reach.

“My folks made it real clear that they thought I’d never get to see heaven. Now, with Ginny in my arms, Luke’s touch on my back, I’m already there.”

Ginny Lawson…a young woman with her own sad story. After losing her parents, all Ginny wants is someone to love and who will love her in return. She is looking for a special kind of man to meet her needs; one who is dominant and caring with intimacy and who is also gentle and kind. Ginny has all but given up hope that this man exists…until…she meets Luke and Aiden.

This story definitely has its sad moments. There were a couple of moments that brought out my own protective instincts as well as anger. But the best parts were sweet and sexy and oh so romantic. I can’t tell you enough how glad I am that I didn’t wait until next Christmas to read HIS. I will definitely look for more from this author. As this was my first book by Chloe Lynn Ellis, it won’t be my last.

Cale: Walk of Shame #3 by Victoria Ashley

25843415

Genres:  Romance, Adult, Erotica, Novella, Virgins

Told in dual POVs

The Blurb:

My name is Cale Kinley and I’m a fucking Virgin…

Well, with the exception of my tongue. The countless things I can do with my tongue are bound to leave you breathless and begging for more, but more… is something that I can’t give. It’s a choice. My choice.

There’s a reason for that. A very good reason, and that reason is her.

Riley.

She’s the only woman that I want to bury myself deep in. The one woman I have wanted since I was old enough to fuck.

I never got my chance though, because she left. She had no choice and it stung like hell. But I couldn’t let her leave without telling her how I felt. I wanted her to be my first and I didn’t give a shit how long I’d have to wait.

It’s been six years and now she’s back and sexier than all hell. Just the sight of her stops my damn heart from beating. I want her and for more than just having her as my first.

I’m determined to have her in every way possible. She thinks this is still a game; that I’ve already given myself to countless women. What she doesn’t know is that I have a lot of willpower.

When I want something as badly as I want her, I don’t let shit stand in my way. I’m going to prove that to her. There’s just one little problem I need to take care of…

Him.

My Review:

Cale (Walk of Shame, #3)Cale by Victoria Ashley

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars…

“Cale” Walk of Shame #3 by author Victoria Ashley.
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!!!

Cale and Riley…..

Of the three Walk of Shame 1st generation novellas, Cale’s is my favorite. Cale himself was my favorite hero. I admit I had a soft spot for him since his introduction in Slade and Aspen’s story, “Slade.” I predicted then he would be my favorite. He was the most sentimental, kind, and caring. And no less sexy and gorgeous. His story is within the trope of “best friends to lovers.”

Cale is just as sexy and intense as the other popular dancers/strippers at Walk of Shame. And he is just as talented at giving the shameless, countless women pleasure and even receiving pleasure himself. But Cale has limits as to what he will do with a woman. He is only going to have sex with one woman. His woman. The one he has saved himself for. The only one he is willing to lose his virginity to. Riley. But Riley had to leave six years ago to take care of her ailing grandmother in Mexico. Cale wanted to tell her he loved her before she left but he was afraid. So he would tell her when she returned. Now that time is finally here.

Riley…..Six years! She has been gone for six years! Riley is coming home and she will finally get to see her best friend again. Cale. She missed him so much. No one has ever been able to take his place in her heart the whole time she was away. He was the one she missed the most. Riley hoped she and Cale could resume their close friendship without any awkwardness. They are both older now, no longer teens. Riley is most afraid to show her real feelings for Cale. She has always wanted to be more than friends but like Cale, she wouldn’t cross that line. Not if it meant losing him.

Cale is no longer afraid to keep his feelings for Riley to himself. He waited six years for her to come back to him and she will be his. In all ways. Finally….

Even if she may belong to someone else.

Cale was the perfect hero. He was not afraid of going for what he wanted. No one was going to stop him from making Riley his. I thought Riley was one lucky woman to have a man like Cale in love with her. He waited so she would be his “first” and only. Riley was and will be the only girl for him.

Although the characters are intense, very sexual and thorough with dirty talk as in all three novellas, this one was more romantic. Cale and Riley’s story was not dark, no prior past demons but just a true friendship that was always meant to be more. A pure love.

Cale is definitely my newest “book boyfriend!”

Perfect by Dani Wyatt

32670713

Genres:  Romance, Virgins, Erotic, BBW

Dual POVs

The Blurb:

Homeschooled and under the stifling grip of an overprotective father, Talia Fielding’s life is pretty miserable. Playing her beloved ukulele and writing songs is as close as she comes to having fun. But that all changes on the night of her eighteenth birthday. She’s invited to her first party where she learns two things: girls can be very, very mean and Griffin Stanford kisses better than any fantasy she’s ever had.

To most of his friends, Griffin Stanford is the handsome football star. However, under those good looks lies the heart of a geek. His passion for numbers has ensured him a life changing job straight out of college. The contract he’s signed has him boarding a plane to halfway around the world the morning after he meets the girl of his dreams.

The obsessive draw Griffin feels toward Talia has him questioning his life’s choices. One night, one kiss and Griffin knows this may be his one and only chance to capture the perfect girl… How can he stop her from slipping through his fingers when the world seems determined to keep these two virgins apart?

Author Note: These two fall in love instantly. If you’re looking for a filthy fantasy fix complete with a Dani-style dirty talking hero topped with heaping helpings of swoony romance, you’re in the right place. This is a standalone novella, with Kindle melting heat, safe, no cheating and filled with virgins who magically know exactly what they’re doing from the very first kiss.

My Review:

PerfectPerfect by Dani Wyatt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Perfect” by author Dani Wyatt.
My Rating: 4 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

What a fun, quick sexy story! If you love a tall, dark, and gorgeous hero who just so happens to be a virgin, you’ll love this book!

If you love insta-love, insta-lust, between two likable characters, you’ll love this book!

And if you love a smutty, dirty-talking, possessive and protective, OTT hero with a sweet, innocent, curvy and lovable heroine, you’ll love this book!

And yes you guessed it…..I loved this book! In fact, “Perfect” is my favorite Dani Wyatt novel so far.

Griffin and Talia meet for the first time at a party. Griffin sees her and is instantly attracted. They only had a short time together but it was long enough for them to share a brief but sweet life-changing kiss.

Because Griffin has to leave the country for a job, the very next morning after they first meet, he is unable to pursue his need for Talia, to make her his. True that they are thousands of miles apart from each other, however their connection stills grows. Through emails and phone calls their relationship blossoms.

I won’t go into details. Not only because this is a quick read, but because you’ll want to experience their romance on your own to appreciate it.

I was excited to read this book after the synopsis was released. I was not disappointed. So if your looking for a short, sweet, and smutty story with a H/h that are “perfect” for each other, I recommend this intense but dreamy novel.

*I received and ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*

The Virgin Cowboy: Cowboys and Virgins #4 by Alexa Riley

32180913

Genres:  Romance, Cowboy, Erotica, Instalove, Virgins H/h, Novella

Dual POVS

The Blurb:

Dolly Jennings has wanted one man since she was sixteen, but he’s kept her at arm’s reach. Time has passed and she’s all grown up now, with a body that he can’t ignore.

Brandon Knight has wanted Dolly for longer than he should have, but he thought she deserved someone better. No longer able to control his desires, he’s giving up on staying away, and claiming his woman.

When Brandon finally gives in, can he prove himself worthy of Dolly? Will Dolly throw sass and southern sayings all over the place?

Absolutely!

Warning: This short story is packed full of big hair, big attitude, and big curves. Dolly holds her own, but the hero always ends up on top. *slow wink* Grab your boots and cowboy hat… We’ve got a couple of cherries to pop!

My Review:

The Virgin Cowboy (Cowboys & Virgins, #4)The Virgin Cowboy by Alexa Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“The Virgin Cowboy” Cowboys and Virgins #4 by Alexa Riley.
My Rating: 3.5 Stars!!!

Before I continue with my review I’m going to say I am not a huge fan of the “daddy” hero. Truth is I find it a bit creepy. However, if it is from one of my favorite authors, my loyalty compels me to give it a chance. Doesn’t mean I’ll like it but since I am open minded to trying out different tropes or genres, I will give it a chance. Fortunately this novella was not over the top “daddy.” That was probably likely due to the short length of the story. So I enjoyed it. Or let’s say I was entertained for the simple fact it was an AR book.

This is book 4 in the series and Dolly and Brandon’s story. Dolly is the youngest sibling of the Jennings. Her older brothers, Ty, Blake, and Trace had their HEA in the three previous books. We actually met our hero, Brandon, in, “Lassoing The Mail Order Bride.” There he worked on the McCallister ranch.

Brandon has loved Dolly for years. Dolly has loved Brandon for just as long. But she was sixteen and he is years older. Brandon knew he was too old for her. But now he isn’t and he’s decided it is time to stake his claim in that adorable caveman way that Alexa Riley is famous for. Dolly was always his anyway but now it was time to make it official. Dolly gives no resistance and what follows is dirty, smutty sex. Both Dolly and Brandon are virgins although you’d never know it by the way they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. They went at it like true pros. 🙂 LOL.

I liked Brandon a lot and he seemed to be lonely before Dolly. I was glad he finally allowed himself to have her. And I loved how alpha he was too. It was his way! And Dolly who was independent, had no trouble taking orders from her sexy cowboy.

“You’re going to marry me, Dolly, not because I’m asking-I’m not-but because there’s no other choice I will allow.”

The Wanted Virgin: Cowboys and Virgins #3 by Alexa Riley

32180906

Genres:  Romance, Instalove, Erotica, Novella, Virgins H/h

Dual POVs

The Blurb:

Trace Jennings was the brother who most enjoyed his time alone. He never thought about spending the rest of his life with someone, until he found her on his ranch.

Addison Becket is on the run. She’s finally eighteen and able to break free of her father’s control, but taking off on a stormy night landed her in a stranger’s bed.

Trace is everything Addison dreamed of and more, and neither of them has the urge to let go. Can love at first sight truly exist? And will it be enough to keep them together while others try to tear them apart?

Please. This is an Alexa Riley hero. She’s not going anywhere.

Warning: This short story is filthy good, with co-dependency at its peak! These two people are absolutely crazy, and it if wasn’t so sweet, it would be certifiable. Go ahead and suspend your reality while you float away with this cloud of ridiculous!

My Review:

The Wanted Virgin (Cowboys & Virgins, #3)The Wanted Virgin by Alexa Riley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“The Wanted Virgin” Cowboys and Virgins #3 by Alexa Riley.
My Rating: 3.5 Stars!!!

Truth is I always get excited when a new book releases by the duo that is Alexa Riley. I know I will get a fast paced, ridiculously unrealistic (which is why I love to read them), completely smutty story with an over the top alpha hero.

This novella is no different. We have a young woman named Addison. Her entire life she’s been under the rule of an abusive controlling father; she was hardly ever allowed the leave the house. Until her 18th birthday. Addison decided to break free from her father and his plans for her future. Plans she had no say in.

Trace, the quietest of the Jennings siblings. The one who treasured his solitude. He loved his family but he preferred quiet isolation, working his ranch. Most of the time he didn’t mind being alone. In fact, he was expecting to live a lonely life. That was until he found a beautiful young woman unconscious on his property.

From that moment on, Trace wasn’t content to be a lone anymore. Trace doesn’t want to let Addison out of his sight. Especially when he knows she is running from something. There is something about her that compels him to stay by her side. In fact, he’s decided, even before she wakes up, that she belongs to him. Enough said!

Good thing Addison has the same feelings for Trace. She wanted to stay with him and never leave. This was instalove at its finest! A fun, steamy, sexy, short love story with a H/h that are perfect for each other.

Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

31752057

Genres:  Romance, Erotic, YA to New Adult, Instalove

Alternating POVs

The Blurb:

It’s Lily Parker’s first day at a new high school. She’s a senior finishing her last semester, and all she wants to do is graduate and get out of town. Her home life is a secret hell, and she’s trying to find a way out. But everything changes when Ren says hello and sees right through to her truth.

Ren Hendrick’s succeed’s at everything he touches, including football. But he’s never been passionate about anything. He’s quiet and keeps to himself, which pisses people off. But he can’t find the desire to care. He’s lived a life without color, until Lily walks in and lights up his world.

Their story is one of sweet young love and finding your forever before you can even dream of what that is. It’s one of protecting what belongs to you and having the courage to follow your heart, no matter your age.

Warning: Call your dentist and schedule an appointment, because you’re going to get nothing but cavities from this sugary book. Ren and Lily start off so innocent, but by the time it’s over, you’re gonna need to hose yourself off. We’re talking two virgins who turn into maniacs. You’re welcome!

My Review:

Shielding LilyShielding Lily by Alexa Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So sweet and endearing. My Rating 4 Stars!!! to “Shielding Lily” by Alexa Riley.
At first I wasn’t sure about his one. The H/h are just 18 years old and I was worried about it being creepy. Nope! Not creepy AT ALL! It was loving and touching and yes Ren and Lily were new to love, but their relationship was beautiful. Rem was so swoon worthy…..

“I’m gonna kiss you, Lily Parker. Because you’re the sweetest and most beautiful girl I’ve ever met, and if I don’t I might die. But once I do, you’re gonna belong to me.”

This review will be short and sweet; just like the book.
Oh just wow! Every time I read an Alexa Riley romance, I can be seen with a big goofy grin on my face. Every damn time! These stories are so outrageous and cheesy you just gotta love them for what they are. Fun, flirty, and smut filled instalove. This is one of the many reasons I look forward to reading an AR novella.

Why oh why couldn’t I have had a “Ren” in my high school? Because most high school boys only think of one thing when it comes to girls and it isn’t love and marriage.

Ren and Lily were an adorable, inseparable couple. This story gave us the commonly used trope of popular, gorgeous football star falling for the shy, new girl. Its something we’ve seen many times and I still loved this one.
Ren and Lily were both quiet individuals. They both preferred being loners, being left alone. That all changed the moment they met, that poignant moment when they locked eyes on each other. Rem was possessive and protective instantly over Lily. There was some stereotypical cheerleader nonsense going on but it was nothing too angsty. Rem made sure no one bothered Lily. As over the top that his feelings for her were, Ren was gentle with Lily. Kind and patient; determined to take their relationship slow. Even though Lily was shy and hesitant, she couldn’t help but feel safe with Ren. He was a bit bossy but so sweet about it.

“I love you, Lily Parker,” I say, looking into her big blue eyes. She smiles at me so sweetly it makes my heart ache. “The second I saw you, I fell, babe. I fell hard and fast. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Loving you and becoming everything to you like you are to me.”

Oh my gosh…the epilogues (of which there were many)….talk about icing on the cake of an already sweet story?

“I’ve always thought I was brought into this world to find and protect you. To shield you from the ugly things out there. To not let any more darkness touch you. And I do still believe that. But I also think you were brought into this world to light up my life, Lily.”

One thing I am certain of when I read an Alexa Riley novella is that they are super cheesy, super short, and absolutely smutty! I love them!

Genres:  Contemporary Romance, Erotica, Novella (136 Pages)

The Blurb:

Decker Lawrence just opened The Monarch, the crown jewel in his chain of successful nightclubs. Surrounded every day by beautiful women, he’s never been tempted to sample the goods. That is until she stumbles in. With a quirky innocence and curves-for-days, May is about to change this virgin’s life forever.

May Morgan has riches beyond most people’s wildest dreams, but after her parent’s death, none of it will ever be hers. Bound to her upcoming arranged marriage, May dreams of escape. Her crazy idea to slip away and earn money by dancing at a hot nightclub seems like the perfect solution. Except, when the handsome club owner catches sight of her, he offers her far more than just a job.

If you want to lose yourself for a while with a happily ever after, no cheating and all wrapped up with an obsessed, alpha hero who will stop at nothing to make babies with his woman, then step inside, it’s steamy.

My Review:

Where She Belongs (The Forever Collection Book 1)Where She Belongs by Dani Wyatt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!!!!

“Where She Belongs” The Forever Collection Book One is by Dani Wyatt.

This was a fun, cheesy insta-love/lust romance with a virgin alpha hero and a ridiculously naive virgin heroine.

What a great short read! I loved both characters! Here we have the story of Decker Lawrence and May Morgan.

May is a sheltered wealthy young woman who has been kept from the real world by her guardian since the death of her parents several years prior. May and her sister aren’t allowed to leave the property. They were both still underage when they lost their parents in a tragic accident, which also injured her older sister. Their guardian could surely use lessons in honesty and good morals. He is manipulating May into an arranged marriage. May comes up with a plan to earn her own money. She will sneak out of the house at night and get a job as a dancer in a nightclub. She hopes to earn enough of her own money to support herself and her sister. Let me mention that May is nineteen and legally should not be under the rule of a guardian any longer. Her sister is a few years older. So why do they still have a guardian when they are both of legal age to take care of themselves? Hmmm…

Decker is the owner of several well established nightclubs but his main office is in his newest, The Monarch. Decker is tall, sexy, and totally an alpha. Oh, did I mention he is a virgin? In his late thirties!? Trust me, that did not stop that hot man from knowing what to do when it came to being with May.

Decker and May were cute together. There is some light suspense and foul play happening to give the story a slightly darker tone but it was definitely a fun read. And sexy, steamy!

This was the first in a series and my first book by Dani Wyatt. I would definitely like to read more from her. As a matter of fact, I am looking forward to the next in this series. I’m actually hoping it will be about May’s sister and Decker’s good friend and coworker.
