Life moves on.

Only people who have never lost anyone they loved with all their heart can blindly believe those words.

What if I didn’t want to move on? What if I wanted to wake up every morning with that familiar ache in my chest, knowing I’d never see her again?

But, life can change in a moment.

I knew that better than anyone … So, when I couldn’t get those mesmerizing green eyes out of my head, I decided to do something about it.

Would one night with her be enough, or would my heart decide it was finally time to move on from the past?

Release Blitz with Review: Stripped by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Posted on
 
Title: Stripped
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Romantic Comedy Standalone
Release Date: March 29, 2016 
Stone Wright is Foreplay’s hottest act. While entertaining at the popular L.A. strip club known for catering to the feminine wild, the fever-inducing Aussie with the sex-saturated accent and moves to match is preparing for the audition of a lifetime on the sensational hit reality show Then Prove You Can Dance.
 
When retired principal dancer and ballerina Emilie Cartier stumbles into his dressing room, she’s still reeling from the one wrong spin that altered her entire life and obliterated her dreams.
 
After a humiliating public, albeit meteoric, orgasm—the kind so desperate to escape, it took over her body without her brain’s permission—and a second, more intimate and deliriously deliberate one, Emilie makes a deal with Stone: he helps her get her dancing mojo back and she readies him for his national audition.
 
But she insists he keeps his wily, wandering hands to himself and his dirty mouth shut. Of course, that’s going to be an extremely hard challenge—one of herculean proportions.

Emilie is not prepared for Stone—the way he spins her mind dizzy, rocks her body into sweet oblivion or dirty dances into her every daydream—and falling in love with him is so definitely not an option.
 
The closer Stone gets to Emilie, the more he realizes he’d do anything to make her his own. Problem is, he’s a real f*ck-up with relationships. And that means he’s dangerously close to becoming her next major f*ck-up.
 
What happens when all of the emotional layers—along with the stage props, their dancewear and every last shred of their clothes—are ultimately stripped?

My Review

Told from dual points of view, Stripped follows the story of Emilie and Stone. Emilie is at a crossroads in her life. Ever since experiencing a career altering injury, Emilie doesn’t know what to do with her life. So, she’s taking some time out and spending it with her best friend in LA; hoping that she’ll be able to figure things out. What she wasn’t prepared for was Stone. You see, Emilie has been hiding in her friends apartment and he friend decided, enough was enough. They needed to have a girls night out and what better way to spend girls night, than at a strip club. She had no idea that, that night would be a game changer. Meeting Stone, even by accident, has brought Emilie back to life….Fate keeps bringing these two together, and an unlikely friendship begins between the two them. They make a deal. Emilie will help Stone try to achieve his dream and Stone will provide Emilie with some hot, no strings attached, sexy times.  Will these two be able to keeps things strictly casual? Will Stone be able to obtain his dream? You’ll just have to read to find out.

Overall, I found Stripped to be a really enjoyable story. The story-line and characters were a lot of fun. I was intrigued by what was going on and couldn’t wait to see how everything would play out. I loved the dancing aspect to the story and really enjoyed getting to know Stone and seeing that there was so much more to him than what meets the eye. I loved Stone and Emilie together. Their chemistry was scorching. You could feel it just oozing off the two of them. And boy, Stone had one dirty mouth on him.

Stripped was a quick and easy read for me. It is sexy and very entertaining. This is my first book by this author and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from her in the future.

She doesn’t wear my ring.
We never stood before a preacher.

My Review

“Growing up, Mama always reminded me that love keeps no record of wrongs. I didn’t know until now that true love, pure love, the right love, doesn’t keep that record because it can’t. I can’t.”

“Who needs words when we have this? This living, panting thing that ignites every second we’re together. Lust and love rub against each other vigorously like two sticks making sparks fly, the first sign of fire.”

“I claim him with the pads of my fingers, with the palms of my hands. He is mine and I am his. Our darkest secrets, shared. Our deepest places reached. We are completely known. Completely loved down to our very souls.”

Kennedy Ryan. Kennedy Ryan, you have blown me away. This book was simply breathtaking. It took my emotions on a roller-coaster ride and demanded that I devour it. It was everything and so much more. From the moment I picked this book up, I knew I was about to go on an amazing journey, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I am still at a total loss for words; it was that good….

Down To My Soul is beautifully written and captivating. Told from dual points of view, this book picks up right where My Soul To Keep left off and will take you on one heartbreaking, emotional ride.

Now, I’m not going to say too much about this beautiful book, because this book is meant to be experienced and not spoiled. What I can tell you is that this book was worth waiting for. This book captivated me from page one and it refused to let me put it down. Kai and Rhys story pulled so hard at my heart and demanded that their story be told. Their story brought to light the true meaning of love and sacrifice and forgiveness. Yes, our two beloved characters shared a lot of ups and downs; their road to HEA was not an easy one. But, that’s what made them so real; so easy to connect with. They both made mistakes and took things for granted, and had to learn from those mistakes. The love these two share was so strong, so real. You knew they weren’t just going to give up without a fight. What they had was worth fighting for and the journey…the journey was so worth it.

Simply put, Down To My Soul was an amazing read. I devoured it in one sitting. This book gave me everything that I could possibly ask for and more. And the ending….Yeah, that was absolute perfection; it even brought a few tears to my eyes. This is definitely one of those books that will burrow its way into your heart and stay with you. I don’t know what else to say. I just loved Rhyson and Kai’s story and I hope that you will take a chance on this series and fall in love with these characters just as I did.

“Rhys?”

His name rushes from my mouth on a breath, and I’m off the bed, hurling myself at him top speed. Somehow my legs wrap around his waist and my arms tangle behind his neck. I couldn’t hold back and play this cool if I wanted to. Every part of me that’s been fighting to stay focused, to keep working, to be on, collapses against him. Surrenders to the feel of him in my arms and the smell of him. My fingers lace through his hair. I scatter kisses across his face, the sharp angles and taut skin warm beneath my lips.

“So I take it you’re happy to see me?” He chuckles, pressing his forehead to mine, hands squeezing my thighs.

“Happy?” I release something that’s half a sob, half a laugh, pulling back a few centimeters to let him breathe. “What gave you that idea?”

We stop grinning at the same time, laughter dissolving, our bodies exchanging sensual information. My breasts flattened to his chest. His erection growing and hardening against my core. Our breaths mingling and hearts tattooing beats through our clothes and into the other’s skin.

I move first, leaning in to capture his bottom lip between mine, sucking and pulling between my teeth. Licking into his mouth like there’s honey hidden inside. He groans into the kiss, walking backward until we reach the bed and dropping me so I bounce a little, his eyes roving over me head to toe.

“Pep, what the hell are you wearing?” Humor and desire tussle in his eyes.

I look down, laughing when I see the young Jackson brothers emblazoned across my chest, my legs ending in the footed bottoms.

“If I’d known you were coming, I could have made sexier arrangements.”

“Arrangements?” He quirks a dark brow, placing a knee on either side of my legs, hovering over me like a promise. “Lingerie would have been nice. Other rock stars have girlfriends who wear lingerie.”

“Oh, are you referring to yourself as a rock star now?” I grin up at him, feeling whole for the first time since he kissed me goodbye a week ago. “That’s not egomaniacal at all. Is there a club? You guys have rock star meetings? Does one of you take rock star minutes?”

“You are sitting in here listening to my music in the dark.” He leans forward to tug at the zipper beneath my chin. “Maybe you’re actually one of my crazed fans. Or a groupie. I might even find a Mrs. Rhyson Gray t-shirt around here somewhere. My girlfriend doesn’t like those.”

“No, she doesn’t.” I shake my head, eyes never straying from his.

A small frown jerks his brows together. He tugs again at the zipper, but it doesn’t budge.

“Pep, it’s stuck,” he says.

“Sometimes it does that,” I answer easily, enjoying the frustration spreading over his expression as he keeps pulling and it keeps staying.

He places my hand over his cock, hard and poking through his jeans.

“Well, it’s not exactly a good time for it to do that.”

I laugh, grasping my zipper and tugging. Wow, it really is stuck. These are vintage PJs, older than I am and threadbare in places. I’m surprised the zipper hasn’t rusted before now. I sit up, bringing our bodies closer as I jiggle the little hook a few times. Nothing.

“Just how attached are you to this Jackson Five onesie?” His glance burns hot across my subtle curves visible through the thin flannel, telegraphing his intentions.

“Well this is Michael’s original nose.” I release a fake exasperated sigh. “But I do have my sewing kit.”

“All I needed to hear.”

Sorry, boys.

He grabs the two ends of the collar separated by the zip line and pulls until there’s a ripping sound, the panels falling back to reveal my naked breasts and my panties. A wicked grin spreads across lips.

“You naughty girl.” He runs a finger over the writing on the front of my calendar panties, carrying a current that simultaneously hitches my breath and gets me wet. “Wearing Monday panties on a Thursday. My little rebel.”

Title: Nate (A Texas Jacks Novel)
Author: J.B. Morgan
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Nate
When Nathan Jackson’s world shattered, and fell out from under him, his two best friends were there to help pick up the pieces. There’s nothing that Nate wouldn’t do for them.

It’s been a few years since then, and Nate’s life seems pretty content between his friends, work, and his love of dirt bike racing. When Nate’s out on the track, he can let it all go, be free, and finally feel at peace.

But when it comes to relationships, Nate’s not looking for anything long-term. He swears that love isn’t worth the risk—until she walks through the doors of Texas Jack’s.

Charlie
Charlotte Davenport knows that something has to give, or life will pass her by. It’s time to add a little excitement to her routine. Charlie isn’t expecting much, but with her friends at her side, she feels ready to break out of her shell. But something’s missing.

When she, and her friends, head out to Texas Jack’s for a night of fun, Charlie meets him — Nathan Jackson. He just might be the man to help Charlie overcome her shyness, and shake up her world.

But first, Nate must be willing to let his guard down and take a chance on Charlie. And if that happens, can Charlie open herself up enough to let him in?

 
 
 
 
J.B. Morgan resides in Oregon where she’s a wife and a stay-at-home-mother of two. When she’s not writing she can be found carting her kids everywhere, busy with volunteer work, or reading. She loves the NY Yankees, traveling, and her family.

When she was younger, she would make up hero-rescuing stories in her head, revolving around boys she had crushes on at school. She’s in love with the idea of love. 

About her stories: I love full length stories with a resolution at the end so -no short novellas or serials for me. I love my stories to have: humor, swoony romance, strong and sensible heroines, good-decent guys, realism, and happily ever afters. After all, don’t we read to escape reality? So why not read what makes you feel good on the inside and puts a smile on your face? This is what I strive to put in my novels
 
 

Review: This is Love, Baby (War & Peace #2) by K. Webster

Posted on

thisislovebaby

My War was over and I had lost. My captor reminded me I was nothing more than his pawn.
His strategy never changed…it was always me.

But what he didn’t know was that LOVE always wins.

In my War, I’d found not only peace
but LOVE as well.

I’d been through a battlefield with my War and LOVE was what brought us to the other side.
Our LOVE was beautiful and pure. Undying.

My captor thinks he has won this war. That I will LOVE him.
What he doesn’t know is this time, I’m the one with a strategy. I’m always thinking several moves ahead of him, my War taught me that.

I will outsmart him and find peace again.
This is a war I will win.
My LOVE will conquer all.

Warning:
This is Love, Baby is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence which could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. Terrible, terrible things happen to our poor heroine, so you’ve been properly warned. This story is NOT for everyone.


My Review

“She’s my center. My nucleus. My only reason. I can only exist fully with her. And I’m nothing without her.”

“War is worth the peace.” My words are honest and true. War is worth everything.

“Fate may be the evil bitch but it’s Love who is the stubborn one. Love doesn’t care if you think you’re undeserving or unworthy. Love doesn’t give a rat’s ass about your past or who you’ve hurt along the way. Love doesn’t care if you have blood on your hands. Love is selfish and she always gets what she wants. And Love is the one who’s teamed up with Fate. They, for some crazy-ass reason, think I deserve this beautiful life.”

K. Webster, you have done it again! If you think your mind was blown with This is War, Baby; think again. This is Love, Baby is the epic conclusion and it will take you on one hell of a ride. Once again, K. Webster has given us a book with a warning. She is preparing us that when we read this book, it’s going to be dark. It’s going to be intense. It is going to once again, push our limits and make us question everything. It warns us to listen to that warning. This book is not for everyone….

This is Love, Baby picks right up where the last book left off and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. Once again, you will be shocked and surprised. You will be taken out of your comfort zone and you will go on a wild ride. There will be lots of twists and crazy turns. You will finally know the truth and get the answers that you so very desperately seek. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and will have you devouring every singe word. It will be impossible for you to put down. You will not be able to look away. You will have to see how it all plays out. And I gotta tell you, I loved, loved the ending of this book. I could not have imagined a better ending for this story. It is absolute perfection and in the end, all I can say is well played, K. Webster, well played.

This is Love, Baby gave me everything I could have wanted in a sequel and more. Fans of this series and lovers of dark reads, this is a must read. You will not be disappointed!
