Hola Carino….  Welcome to the mindfuck!

Holy Hell… Ms. Robinson effen did it…made me fall for El Diablo!  FUCK!

This book is going to leave you breathless… out of breath because you are so mad you can’t breathe…

Out of breathe because the pain you feel for this broken man is heartwrenching.  Breathless and unable to get oxygen to your brain because of the twists and turns that leave you upside down and inside out.  And definitely breathless by the Hotness of Martinez and Lexi…

Big girl panties for this one babe.. it’s hot and evil… but what else would you expect from El Diablo?

The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a standalone story about finding love where you least expect it…  Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father’s shadow.    Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.   Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

OMG!!!! K. Bromberg Gives us “Zander’s” Story!!!!
Oh how little Z stole my heart in the Driven series. Such a broken little boy, who was in so much pain until Colton appears in his life and gives him his voice! His tortured soul was loved and cherished by Colton and Rylee, and I just knew his future was bright! But the pain that darkens your heart and soul, never really goes away, and Z definitely has to battle his demons before he loses everything!

This story was beyond beautiful. I read it in one sitting and I just loved everything about it.

It’s one thing to donate money to a cause.
What about your time, heart and soul? How much should you be expected to give?
If a stranger asked, could you be an end friend?

I love Angie Brasiers writing… her Chubby Chasers Inc series is insanely original and erotically twisted… so when I read the synopsis for Dots… I thought… ok.. this is different.  But knowing Angie, I just knew that it was going to take me to another side of her brilliant brain…  And she rocked it!

So word of advice… don’t trip up on the first line of her blurb…

This is a story about two strangers with nothing but grief in common.

Yes, you will deal with grief… but honestly, I see this story being about life.  All the nitty gritty, raw, painful and beautiful grab it will all you’ve got, life.

You get Mason, ok.. well YOU don’t get Mason.. he’s mine… but you will get to read all about the amazingly yummy inside and out, Mason.  He is an intelligent and successful businessman… but he is also a man who has suffered, is figuring out how to survive that pain, and in the process, becoming an amazing human being with a heart of gold.  He is an entrepreneur, who is using his mountain of money and created a unique website, for people to connect.  Ok, thats all the info you are getting because Angie came up with a brilliant idea, and I really wish it existed..

So, with Mason’s brainchild, you will see how his connection to Chloe begins…

Ohhhhh… Chloe, Chloe, Chloe….. How you made my heart soar and bleed.  This story is her journey, her amazing heart and soul completely bared and it will consume you!  She is following her path.. her destiny, by connecting the dots in ways you will be amazed at the picture they make…

Dots is truly a poignant story… I really loved the ending… well… after dropping to my knees and crying… i came to terms with how beautiful it really was!

Recipe: 1 Porn Star, 1 Step Sister, 1 Wealthy Father, 1 Flighty Stepmother Take one trust fund baby porn star, a stepsister in need of money, and a wealthy father the flighty stepmother stole from. Add in a lot of sex, a huge dose of tragedy, a load of betrayal, a pinch of revenge and a heap of arrogance. Mix them together and shake shit up for a few weeks. The result? One VERY Dirty Boy. 

Series: The Dirty Series #1

Wow… when I read the synopsis…. I thought… well this is different and it will just be lots of fluff about sex.

Holy cow was wrong.. well right, but wrong..lol  There is a lot of sex.  I mean, it’s about the porn industry and players.  But it’s also about Family, about love and loss, about a young girl on her very bumpy journey through life and dealing with the cards dealt to her.  And it’s about a broken man, who goes out of his way to break a girl, and instead, even though he fights it with everything he can to the point of ruining his future, he ends up healing.

Really an interesting read.  Not at all what I expected.  And thats a very good thing!

Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.
The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.

small frame review

This story continues the True Mc Series with the story of their MC President, Reb.

We begin with the story of good girl Emily Clark.  She happens to be a librarian trying hard to live her life well although struggling without luxuries so she can live a fuller life once she is out of debt.

She is living in a not so “wow” apartment where she has befriended a neglected little boy, who just happens to the Reb’s son.  Unbeknownst to her, one night when she can’t take his neglect anymore, and she hunts down Reb to give him a piece of her mind, and that sets off an adventure she did not know she wanted!

Emily has some serious skeletons in her closet, and is trying to stay safe while healing the hurt in her heart… Reb just doesn’t realize the seriousness of her past.  And then his present leaks into her future and this becomes a hell of a ride!

Really a great continuation of the stories and I can’t wait to read more!

A TRUE STORY told through the voice of New York Times Bestselling author E.K. Blair.
She’s an author.She’s a mother.She’s a wife.She’s a fraud.
A woman marked and bound by her own deceit, this is the astounding tale of how one choice knocked her world from its axis forcing her to battle through a year of scandal and betrayal, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy.
This is an intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone true story tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition.

Author Anonymous is a raw and completely frustrating story that made me want

too fling my kindle against the wall several times.

Made me skip parts and shut off my kindle and walk away pissed…

exasperated, shocked and amazed…

only to run back to the story and read everything I skipped,

and then I couldn’t put it down… it consumed me.

It has taken me days…. DAYS!! to get my head wrapped around this story… I have had the hardest time putting into words the tilt-a-whirl of emotions I felt reading it… HELL, I am still feeling them.

I can honestly say… I have no clue if I loved it or hated it… and that shocked me… How can one story make me this insane… make me get really really upset… think hurtful thoughts like wanting to junk punch this chick and hug her at the same time to heal all her wounds.  After letting it simmer, I think I have a better handle on it.  Let me explain… I love dark, difficult angst filled books… my heart beats to the beat of bleeding hearts and souls in books…. I am not normal.. I know…  But here is the thing… Although I have read some really twisted dark stories… they are stories… they are fiction… I can separate (compartmentalize… whatever…lol) my feelings into knowing the fact that this human being who wrote this amazing story with their brilliant brain, made it fiction… fake… does not really exist!

Ohhhhh… but in this wicked story by the always brilliant E.K. Blair… I am shattered… no wrapping up this story in a neat little bow, because it is true… it is real… it is raw, hurtful, hateful and beyond scary.   Now that I am being so very honest… My gut deep feelings about the horrible, horrifically selfish choices she made, at some very secret level, made me realize the reality that is if the majority of the women/wives/partners I know, (including myself) were in the very same situation, living this out as their real world… How many would not have done the same thing… lived out this life, no matter how messy and how bloody the battlefield of causalities it left behind…  Be honest… I would think that most of us might have just made some or maybe even all of the same choices…  and that my friends is the pang of pain I feel.  It is not that I hate this story.. it is that I hate that it could easily (too easily) be me… or you….

Ok.. take a moment to swallow that…

So knowing that this is based or is 100% the honest truth of a real life scenario…someone’s true world that does not have a song track or a safety net. And it absolutely does NOT have a pretty little happy ending wrapped up in a fancy bow, where all wrongs are righted and everyone lives happily ever after… that right there gives you a must read book… and BRAVO E.K. Blair and whoever you are Author Anonymous for pouring your heart and soul and letting it bleed out all over the pages…. all over this messy thing called life.

It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Fall...
The club comes first.
I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.
Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.
I’m coming for you, Tinker.
Soon.

Ohhhhhhh Joanna, Joanna, Joanna… how I love thee!!

OMG, I have been waiting for this story!!!

This is Gage and Tinker’s story!!

And hot damn is it an amazing one!!

We have Gage… well he is just amazing who just about makes me fall to my knees with unrequited love.  He is loyal… and I mean LOYAL to his club… to his friends.. to his heart and soul.

We get him in a not so ideal situation, where he must behave and follow through although it may just shatter his heart and ruin any happy future he may have had.  But he follows through… dealing with things while at the same time trying to keep Tinker safe.   So lets get to Tinker… she is a strong woman, who has a huge heart.  She is in a new chapter of her life, having just barely survived a horrible loss and a bastard of a husband.  She is dealing with trying to live her life, continue her business while taking care of her ailing dad after losing her mom as well.  How she is keeping her head above water is beyond me.  And then you get Gage and the BS he is having to live right in the mix and you get a really complicated set of events that Joanna just writes to perfection!

This book is a great continuation of one of my fave series ever….

I can’t wait for more from Joanna Wylde!!

From the internationally celebrated author of the Original Sinners series comes a brand-new tale of betrayal, revenge and a family scandal that bore a 150-year-old mystery
When Cooper McQueen wakes up from a night with a beautiful stranger, it's to discover he's been robbed. The only item stolen—a million-dollar bottle of bourbon. The thief, a mysterious woman named Paris, claims the bottle is rightfully hers. After all, the label itself says it's property of the Maddox family who owned and operated Red Thread Bourbon distillery since the last days of the Civil War until the company went out of business for reasons no one knows… No one except Paris.
In the small hours of a Louisville morning, Paris unspools the lurid tale of Tamara Maddox, heiress to the distillery that became an empire. But the family tree is rooted in tainted soil and has borne rotten fruit. Theirs is a legacy of wealth and power, but also of lies, secrets and sins of omission. The Maddoxes have bourbon in their blood—and blood in their bourbon. Why Paris wants the bottle of Red Thread remains a secret until the truth of her identity is at last revealed, and the century-old vengeance Tamara vowed against her family can finally be completed.

This story is soooooooo freaking original, and elegant… and HOT! lol

This book takes you back and forth between intertwining lives from the far past to the present to present you with a story that is super twisted, shocking and refreshing all at the same time.

I honestly do not want to give anything away… you just have to experience the amazing writing that is Tiffany for yourself!!  I know its a standalone, but I just want more… I don’t want this story to end!

Too fast, too furious-and way too hot to handle . . .
Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie's skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she's racing against Hayden.
As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense--and strictly forbidden--attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind...

Are some secrets meant to stay buried?
Three months have passed since Jason “Grizz” Talbot was put to death by lethal injection for crimes he committed. His former wife, Ginny, whom he had abducted from a convenience store when she was a teenager and became the love obsession of his life, has spent more than the last decade trying to carve out a life of normalcy in the bustling suburbs of Fort Lauderdale—including a thriving and happy marriage to Tommy "Grunt" Dillon, a former member of Grizz’s gang.
Tired of the secrets and the lies, Ginny and Tommy thought the final piece of their past could be left behind forever with Grizz’s execution. However, the past comes crashing around Ginny and Tommy when a newly discovered secret threatens to destroy their marriage. When tragedy strikes, Ginny is forced to reach into her heart and decide, once and for all, what she really wants.
​In this third book in the Nine Minutes trilogy, A Gift of Time takes readers from the busy tropical metropolis of South Florida into the serenity of the North Carolina Blue Ridge mountains as Ginny chases down the answers she needs.
Will she have the strength to confront the secrets of her past…and her heart?

Don’t get me wrong though, although you get a lot of insight.. prepare for some pain as well… unexpected soul searing pain of the present and the future.

I'm running rogue. Hell bent on both revenge and redemption. Whatever it takes, I'm going to finish a job that began nine months ago. An unauthorized assignment that turned horribly, devastatingly wrong. My miscalculation. My fault. My heart left shattered into incomplete pieces which will never wholly fit back together again.
But first I have to outsmart my former organization and the hired killer they've sent after me; a killer who knows my every move, who’s been inside my head, my heart, and my dreams.
I'm the traitor, Kylie. The rogue mercenary. Jaxson's newest assignment. And this is our love story.

This is my first read from Michele Mannon.

I really enjoyed this book! It is really fast paced and original.

We get the story of Kylie. A young girl who is surviving a tragedy. She is surviving this tragedy by planning revenge!! Coincidentally, this revenge is going to include a top secret mercenary group that is also taking roots in her town along with the bad guys. With all of this she is also dealing with her mothers illness and trying to protect her sister.

This is a story of suspense and love both found unexpectedly… but both very intense! Especially when the love of your life believes you became a traitor, and is set to hunt you down and terminate you!

At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.” *** Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday. She had everything planned out. A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence.

Pennie$ is the painful story of Tasmin.  She is a privileged girl, her mother’s puppet.  She is raised to behave a very certain and appropriate way.  So technically, she has never lived.  She just exists.

Then, when you think your life is not all that great… it gets worse… and I mean it gets to the point where you wish for death.  Pepper takes us through her kidnapping and existence with great tact and finesse.  She does not dwell on the details of the hell Tasmin is living in.  She cleverly presents her story with letting your imagination fill in the gaps of those details.  Brilliant!  Your mind can be soooooo much more detailed in imagining the horrors Tasmin is living through.

I will not go into details of this story… just know this.  It is a love story.  A very twisted and unconventional love story.  But what else would you expect from Pepper’s dark mind??? lol

Can’t wait for the rest of the series… I have a feeling the journey is going to be amazing!

Pre-Order the rest of the series HERE!

These Royals will ruin you…
From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.
Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.
What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.
Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.
She might be right.
Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.

Broken Prince starts where Paper Princess ended…. yeah… you know that cliffy of all cliff-ies of all time ending of Broken Prince!

Ella is gone, and Reed has a lot of explaining and fixing to do to get Ella back…even just back home not even back with him….

Erin Watt takes us through 1000 times more angst, twist and turns with this second book!  Seriously you have no clue… omg… you just need to hang on for this ride!

You will hate Reed… omg.. seriously.. you will bleed for the Royals… You will cry with Ella and cheer for her strength… You will oooohhhh and ahhhhhhh and take a cold shower!  But most of all you will die at the end.. and pray for the next book!

Zoey
Turning thirty is overrated. Who said you had to be married with a fabulous career and three kids? I had a great life. Single, freedom to do whatever I please, and best of all, stay home on a Friday night in my sweats, eating pizza while listening to the best of the ’80s.
I’m fine.
Drew
When a woman says she’s fine, she’s not fine. Zoey had it all. Stunning looks, ambition, the whole package. Then he fucked her up. He broke her.
And now I’m left picking up the pieces…again.
Zoey Richards, strong-willed and driven, settled on the geeky struggling med student to share her apartment with, not the perfect-in-every-way stud who would just distract her and undoubtedly break her heart.
When her ex comes back into the picture, Zoey seeks revenge and enlists her roommate’s help. All Zoey and Drew need to do is pretend to be a couple for one night. But one night can change everything. Refusing to break their “roomie code,” and in an effort to deny their feelings for each other, a war erupts between Zoey and Drew.
She lives in the past; he, for the future. If opposites attract, will these two gamble their friendship for a chance at love?

4 Crowns

Roomie Wars is a standalone romance and is not related to any other books written by this author.

Zoey is just about to turn 30, is in a job that seems to be going nowhere fast and is nursing a crushed heart following the break-up with the latest bad boy. Much to her roomie’s disgust, she has spent too many months sitting on the couch and gorging on crap t.v, 80’s music and junk food. To top it off, she also has the pleasure of watching her roommate and best friend parade an endless amount of hook-ups through their apartment. Who knew 4 years ago that the chubby nerd called Andrew would become a chick magnet, health freak now going by Drew.

Drew has watched Zoey go from an ambitious hot young woman into a broken hearted slob. Gone is the strong-willed woman he met 4 years ago and it is all down to a man that never deserved her anyway. Like always he is there for her, encouraging and being the best friend he can be. But when the chance of losing her becomes too real, will he be honest about his feelings? Or will he deny them to keep their friendship intact?

PEm circle 200

They have worked as roommates for so long because they have never broken the rules they set and stuck to from the start. But when Jess makes a re-appearance, Zoey asks Drew a huge favour. Lines will get blurred and their friendship may or may not suffer. Will they follow the roomie code or will they break them all?

Another great read from an author that is fast becoming a favourite of mine. Once again, as with her previous read #Jerk, Kat has wrote a book that is in essence a romantic comedy, but a rom-com that has a little bit more heart to it. I laughed, my heart broke and of course, as with all her books, expect there to be the angst factor.

I totally related to Zoey. Her life is at a crossroads and she can’t choose the best direction for the fog that blinds her. The only beacon is Drew, but the feeling that he has begun to stir are a struggle for her because he is the only person in her life who she trusts. As for Drew, well he is hot and yes he knows it. A total man-whore, but one with a heart and one that cares deeply for Zoey. When he is faced with losing her, his true feelings surprise him. In his heart he is still the boy with lingering abandonment issues and he is unwilling to risk their friendship because of any unrequited feelings he may have.

 

A great pull and push friends to lovers romance, with lots of laughs, nostalgic 80’s music references and two characters that would rather go to war than risk rejection and the loss of a friendship. A really enjoyable summer read. Another book by an author I highly recommend.

*** Now Live! $.99 Release Special ***
I ran away from the glitz and privilege of my famous New York City family to this small-town Texas college to find myself. I didn't expect to find him...
...the muscular, tatted bad-boy who would soon become my obsession.
He was broken, lost, and voiceless ... just like me.
His eyes smoldered me with one look.His touch awakened the woman inside me.
And through his lips, his perfect, plush, kissable lips, he drew out the inspiration deep in my soul I did not know was there.
I needed to believe that he could save me. I wanted him to help me find my voice at last ... the voice that would set me apart from my tragically perfect family, the voice that would finally break me free ...
If only he could hear a word of it.
The College Obsession Romance series centers around a group of friends and the relationships they form during their time at a small-town Texas school. They are angsty, steamy new adult novels with HEAs and NO cheating. Although they are obsession-themed romances, there are no stalkers or psychos!

Daryl Banner Freaking Rocked this book!!!!!

Omg.. I was completely sucked in with the characters, the story, the feels!!!

Honest to god, this story rocked!  It is original and unique.  The main characters are engaging and completely knock your socks off with the HOTNESS FACTOR!!!

I have read Daryl’s fantasy series which in not my usual genre, and he hooked me with that, but his foray into the m/f romance genre is spectacular!  He completely brought the theater world to life and had me sitting on the edge of my seat to find out how all the twists and turns would turn out.

His intriguing characters, Desdemona and Clayton are by far one of my faves.  Definitely not cookie cutter at all!  The battle of heart and soul to trust themselves and each other is heart wrenching.  You are just team love the whole way!

I don’t want to give details about this story… it is definitely one too read and just know you will love!

Read it NOWWWWW!!

5 Stars

Lydia De Havilland is shocked when Brogan Ramsay suddenly reappears in her life. Several years before, Brogan was the son of her family's gardener, and the boy she hurt and betrayed. But Brogan is no longer the quiet, sensitive boy she remembers. Now he's a man—gorgeous, powerful . . . and seeking vengeance.

Brogan Ramsay can't let go of the memory of Lydia tricking him cruelly, leaving his heart shattered and his family penniless. And now he's back to destroy her family the way his was destroyed. There's only one problem . . . the girl who wounded him so badly years ago is now a woman who still has the power to render him breathless.

Ramsay is the story of betrayal and wrath, of the strength of regret and the power of forgiveness. It is the story of the thin veil between love and hate, and how more often than not, when we seek to inflict pain on others, the heart we wound is our own.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY ARIES. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

I’m nineteen.And I'm a killer.This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the s**t buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.Without dwelling on the past.Until him.It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.And my first love.I have to choose.The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...

Again… omg wow!  T.M. Frazier gives us another fantastic read!

Remember the crazy chicky that took care of Bears girl at her home in the orange grove??

Yeah!! This is her story!  And holy effen hell! Its insane, just like we love Ms. Frazier too be!

It starts off with little Rage and her best friend Cody.  Right off the bat you get the background of her Psyche… she is just wired differently.  Her parents are beside themselves trying to fix her.  Her best friend Cody is the only one who “gets” her… and he helps her “fake” being normal in many different ways….

As she grows up she starts growing into the real her, and no matter what they try, she must be who she is… and that starts a whole new life for her and Rage is born!

PE circle 400

So in this transitions, Nolan enters her life.  He is not what I expected.  I thought for sure he is just going to be some college yuppie all broken and weak..  NOPE!! He literally is match for match for Rage, but she doesn’t know it yet.

Their entanglement is intense… super hot!  and damn interesting!  I just couldn’t put the book down once it got into the unexpected nitty gritty!  With complicated characters like these you know the ride is going to be insane!  Just hang on and enjoy!
