Review Blitz: Take Me Back by Meghan March


TakeMeBack_FrontCoverWe fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.
It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

My Review

“We only get one ride, Kat, and I think you’re meant to be part of mine. Say yes, and I promise you won’t regret it.”

Take Me Back takes you on an extraordinary journey. A journey of what really happens after you say I do. The happily ever after isn’t always easy. Life and circumstances sometimes take you in a direction you never expected. A direction that can either leave you fighting for your love or taking the easy way out.

Take Me Back is a quick and easy read. This story is incredibly well written and takes you on an emotional and thrilling ride. This story evokes a variety of emotions and feels. It will have you questioning and wondering how you would deal with things if you were in a similar situation. Just how far would you go for love?

Take Me Back will open your eyes.It will make you see what is truly in front of you; to see the things that you may have taken for granted.There will be twists that will not only surprise you, but keep you utterly captivated.

I know I’m being pretty vague with this review, but I promise, once you read this book, you will get it. This is a story you need to experience and go into blind. I promise, in the end, it will be totally worth it.

Release Day Blitz with Review: Notes of the Past (Lightning Strikes #2) by Jodie Larson

Title: Notes of the Past
Series: Lightning Strikes #2
Author: Jodie Larson
Release Date: March 20, 2017
Add to TBR

I love women. And it’s easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country’s hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don’t do complicated. Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That’s when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I’ve ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn’t just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I’ve built? We’re connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

*May be read as a standalone*  

My Review

“Hard truths aren’t always easy to swallow.”

“You’re the song of my heart, the lyrics of my life. Every note I play is for you.”

Ever since I finished Serenading The Shadows, I have been hoping that we would get Myles story. Despite having some epic douche worthy moments, I knew that he had a story to tell, and if we got a chance to read it, it would be totally worth it. And boy am I glad that Jodie Larson decided to tell Myles’ story.

Notes of the Past is told from dual points of view and is the much anticipated story of Myles.  Myles is an asshole; a total jerk. He loves woman and always has a new one in his bed. Besides music, women are his next love. That being said, the women in Myles’ life never get more than one night. He doesn’t do strings or complications. You see, he’s been burned by the love a good woman in the past and he let that hurt turn him into the man that he currently is. Now, many and I mean many years later, his past is about to collide with his present, knocking his entire world off of its axis….Tatum has only loved one man her entire life, but she let fear get the better of her, ruining the best thing that ever happened to her. Now, many years later, fate has brought Tatum and Myles back together. Tatum regrets the actions that separated her and Myles and would give anything for another chance. Will Tatum be able to break down the sky high walls that Myles has built and get him to listen? There is only one way to find out…

Notes of the Past is a fantastic rockstar/ second chance romance. I loved Myles and Tatum’s story. From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked in and desperate to see what made Myles the way that he was. I just knew that there had to be more to him than meets the eye and as much as his behavior and actions pissed me off, I really wanted to see him redeem himself. Because, let me tell you, the more time I spent with Myles, the more I wanted to see him become a better man. Sure Tatum wasn’t perfect. She made some epic mistakes, but she was young and handled things as she saw fit. It takes a big person to own up to their mistakes and to try to make them right. And let me tell you, just being around Tatum and Myles…You just knew these two had some unfinished business. The tension between the two of them was not only intense, but an inferno just waiting to explode…If only they could move past the past….

Notes of the Past is one of those books that you can’t help but devour in one sitting. The characters are well written and are perfectly flawed. You can’t help but get caught up in their story; one minute frustrated to the point of wanting to throw your kindle and in the next moment, holding your breath, hoping that these two could find a way to get to their HEA.

Myles’ story was everything that I could have wanted and then some. This is a story of mistakes and second chances. This is a story about true love and redemption. This is a story of grabbing on to your second chance and not wasting a single moment. It was just the book I needed and a great addition to the Lightning Strikes Series.

Book Tour with Review: The Play Mate (Roommates #2) by Kendall Ryan


the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

My Review

“Like a key fitting into a lock. The last of the darkness faded away, and the loneliness that had become the norm for me lifted, leaving behind a happiness I hadn’t felt in years.”

“Lighting. That’s what it felt like, kissing Evie.”

“Life could be a grind sometimes, but tonight had been a rare gem. An oasis of perfection. No way was I going to ruin it.”

The Play Mate is the second book in the Roommates Series, but can read as a stand alone novel. Told from dual points of view, The Play Mate follows the story of Evie and Smith. For as long as Evie can remember, she’s had a crush on Smith. In her eyes, Smith was the total package. He was smart, sexy and he understood her. Like I said, the total package. Now that Evie is all grown up, she wants to have a do over and she wants Smith to be the man that makes all of her dreams come true between the sheets….Smith loves the life that he lives. He’s intelligent, rich, confident and knows the effect that he has on women. However, there is one woman that he wants more than the air he breaths, but she is off limits to him. You see, Evie is the little sister to Smith’s best friend. He knows he can’t and shouldn’t go there, so he tries his hardest to keep away from her, but that is easier said than done. Even harder now that the two of them will be working together. The chemistry and sparks are intense. Their desire so undeniable that it will only be a matter of time before these two give in…

The Play Mate is the perfect friends to lovers romance with a forbidden romance quality to it. From the moment you meet Evie and Smith, you are pulled into their story and will quickly be swept away. I loved everything about their story. From the forbidden flirtations to the entertaining banter. I could not get enough of these two. Their push and pull was so palpable. You could feel the tension oozing from the pages. Not only did these two have an amazing friendship and unbreakable bond, but the tension between the two of them told you that what they had was the real deal, they just had to be ready to the leap.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It was a fast paced and sexy read. The characters were a ton of fun and so easy to relate to. Their story was fun and engaging. I couldn’t put this book down. The Play Mate had just the right amount of sexiness, forbidden romance, angst and of course a little bit of drama. If you are looking for a fun and sexy read with a bit of forbidden/off limits flare to it, I’d definitely recommend checking this book out.

BLUSH FOR ME - header banner

From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a steamy new standalone romance in her bestselling Fusion Series




New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland’s hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn’t afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she’s forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

My Review

Blush for Me is the third installment in the Fusion Series and follows the story of Mac and Kat. For wine bar manager, Kat, there isn’t much that scares her. Between her strong and impressive IQ and devotion to her friends and job, she is a total no-nonsense type of gal. But when Kat finds herself on a flight for a wine tour, she quickly discovers that there is one thing that could bring her to her knees….Flying. As luck would have it though, she was graced with the best possible flight mate, Mac. He calms her down and gives her the strength she needs to make it through the flight. Before they know it, the flight is over, leaving them parting ways…Of course, fate had other plans for these two. When they find themselves on the same wine tour, they spend an unforgettable, no strings attached week together. Their connection is intense and undeniable. Neither one of them can get the other out of their heads and when fate decides to intervene one more time, Mac and Kat can’t stay away from one another leaving them with no other option but to see where their amazing chemistry will take them….

Overall, I think Blush for Me is a wonderful addition to the Fusion Series. This story is incredibly well written and entertaining. The characters are a lot of fun and they just feel like you’ve known them forever. You can’t help but fall for them the moment you meet them and just see where the story is going to go. I loved spending time with Kat and her friends. They are the type of girlfriends that any woman would be lucky to have in their life. And of course, I loved Kat and Mac. Their chemistry was solid and strong. They were the perfect balance and I just couldn’t get enough of the pull between the two of them.

Blush for Me was a fabulous read, from beginning to end. The story was captivating and filled with the sexy and sweet romance that I have come to love from this author. It was perfectly balanced with a little bit of suspense and mystery along the way. Blush for Me gave me everything that I was looking for and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!

“You look like you’re feeling better.”

                Mac. That’s Mac’s voice in my ear. A shiver runs through me as I turn around and look up, way up, into his green eyes.

                “I am,” I reply and take a sip of my wine. Was he that good looking on the plane? “I didn’t realize you were attending this conference.”

                “You had other things on your mind earlier,” he says smoothly and motions for the bartender. “I’ll have what she’s having, and another for her as well.”

                “What if you don’t like pinot?” I ask and tilt my head to the side.

                “I like it all,” he says with a wink.

                Oh my.

                “Do you know many people here?” he asks, nodding toward Sally who has moved on to chat with another group of people.

                “A few. I’ve not met most of them in person, unless they were up in Washington or Oregon. How about you?”

                “Same,” he says with a grin. “This is my first conference down in Napa Valley. And it’s off to a great start.”

                “Right.” I laugh and shake my head. “Dealing with a crazy chick on the plane is exactly the best way to start your trip.”

                “It is,” he says and looks me dead in the eye. “She wasn’t that crazy. She was scared. There’s a difference.”

                “Well, she’s fine now.”

                “I’m glad.” His lips tip up into a smile and my stomach clenches. He has a dimple in his left cheek.

                I want to lick it.

                I take a sip of my fresh glass of wine and smirk to myself. Perhaps Mac fits the sexcation bill.

                “What just went through that gorgeous head of yours?”

                “I’m not drunk enough to tell you yet,” I reply honestly. Mac’s eyes widen briefly, and then he simply smiles at me.

                “There’s a lot of wine in this place.”

                “Thank God for that.”

                A few hours later, after chatting with many people, new and those I already know, including Mac, he escorts me up to my room.


                But when we reach my door, he leans in and kisses my cheek. Just the cheek. I frown up at him.

                “This is supposed to be a sexcation, not a fucking dating game.” It’s a grumble, but I’m shocked to hear it actually leave my lips, rather than stay in my head where it’s supposed to be.

                “A what?” Mac asks.

                “Nothing.” I shake my head and pull my key card out of my handbag. “Good night.”


                “Yeah.” I look back at him and sigh a little at the sexy dimple in his cheek and the way his shirt pulls against his shoulders as he leans on the doorframe.

                “I’ll see you in the morning.”

                “It’s already morning,” I remind him.

                “It won’t be too long, then.”

Review Blitz: Royally Matched (Royally #2) by Emma Chase


Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

My Review

“There are meetings in books that stand out, that alter the course of the story. Profound encounters between the characters when one soul seems to say to the other, “There you are–I’ve been looking for you.””

“He’s bold and confident; I think that’s my favorite part. The way he moves, how he touches me and himself–how he’s sure of just what to do. And he knows it. It’s beautiful and thrilling at the same time.”

“I’ve never had someone who was just mine, body and soul–mine to protect and hold and love. And that’s what Sarah is…she belongs to me now. We belong to each other.”

Sweet. Swoon-Worthy. Utterly Romantic. That is how I would describe Royally Matched. Royally Matched is a fun and entertaining read that will consume your heart and leave you with a smile on your face.

Royally Matched is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Henry and Sarah. Henry has no clue or desire to be king. No matter how hard he tries, he always screws up. Needless to say, he’s not handling himself well. Since he knows his wild and crazy times are numbered, he decides to go all out with a bang…A royal reality dating show to be exact. Think the bachelor, but with a soon to be king twist. It’s all supposed to be fun and games…That is until Henry meets Sarah. Sarah is unlike any woman that he’s ever met. She’s real and shy to a fault, but don’t let that shyness fool you. She isn’t afraid of anything and doesn’t want anything from the prince. She is totally refreshing. The more time that Henry spends with Sarah, the more he is drawn to her. Before either of them knows it, they develop a connection meant for the books…..

What can I say about Royally Matched, other than I just loved this book. It was fun. It was flirty. It was sexy as hell and filled with swoon worthy moments. I fell for Henry straight away and loved every second of his story. One of the things that I loved about Henry was how real he was. He wasn’t the perfect prince. He knew he was flawed and despite himself wanted to be better. And when he loved, he loved with everything that he was. And I loved his devotion to Sarah, the way he cared for her and her needs. He never pressured her or tried to change her. And when Henry messes up, he really steps up to the plate and fights for what he wants.

Royally Matched is a fantastic addition to Royally Series. I loved getting swept up in Henry and Sarah’s story. Their story was everything that I wanted and then some. I just adored it.

Review: Roman (Cold Fury Hockey #7) by Sawyer Bennett


In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.

Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.

My Review

Cold Fury Hockey is quickly becoming one of my favorite series’ by author Sawyer Bennett. Each story has it’s own unique tale of an unforgettable romance. And Roman’s story is no exception.

Roman is the 7th book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series but can be read as a stand-alone novel. Roman is told from multiple points of view and follows the story of Roman, Lexi and Brian. Now, I will be the first to admit, I wasn’t really sure how I felt about having Brian’s point of view, but as I read the story, I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. l really enjoyed seeing his insight on things, and how certain events changed his life. I think his pov ended up adding a lot to the story.

Now for Lexi and Roman. Lexi and Roman were a lot of fun. I loved their connection and chemistry that they shared. From the moment these two met, you could tell that their relationship was going to be special. I loved how unique Lexi was. She was quirky, fun and just had a wonderful personality. And Roman was the total bad boy; troublemaker. He was used to having his way and doing things on his own schedule. But, there was more to this troubled man than meets the eye and I really enjoyed seeing the sides of him that only Lexi could bring out.

Overall, I really enjoyed Roman’s story. It was fun, entertaining and just a wonderful romance. It was well written and for the most part, pretty light on the drama. There was some nice angst and of course, delicious sexy times. I think this book was a wonderful addition to this series and I can not wait to see who’s story we’ll be getting next!

Review: Lost in Between (Finding Me #1) by K.L. Kreig

lostinbetweenWe all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

*If dirty-talking, dominant alphas are not your thing, move along. Mature, 18+ only. Book 1 in a 2-part duet.

My Review

My words are simple but ruthless. Said with purpose. They are intended to would. Cut ties.”

“Shaw’s presence  is commanding, absolute. A force to be reckoned with. So, I expect him to claim, own, invade. But he doesn’t. He takes him time, imprinting me instead. Slowly branding me as promised, drawing my bottom lip between his before doing the same to the bottom.”

“This is not about the rush of finally getting something just out of reach. She is different from any other woman I’ve met. There is just something about her that whispers to me. It sounds suspiciously like mine.”

Oh, man! What a fantastic read. From the moment you pick up this book and read the prologue, you are sucked in. Your curiosity is peaked and questions are already forming. Flash forward to the present. Willow is trying to start over with her life and take care of her mother. She would do anything for her family, even taking jobs that she doesn’t want to. The one thing she never planned on or saw coming was Shaw. From the moment Shaw crashed into Willow’s car, their path was forever changed. Despite the damage to her car, Willow couldn’t deny the pull she felt towards Shaw. And when an opportunity of a life time presents itself to Willow and Shaw, everything these two though they knew or wanted will fly out of the window.

I have to say, one of the first things that drew me into this story was the Pretty Woman esq story-line. I love, love, love fake relationship romances and I could not help myself from devouring this one. Lost in Between was written and captivating. I thought the story-line was executed well and found myself unable to put this book down. The characters were a lot of fun. They were real, entertaining and easy to connect with. I couldn’t get enough of Shaw and Willow together. Their chemistry was amazing and completely off the charts. I thought they had great push and pull and I loved the alpha side that Willow brought out in Shaw. Seeing Shaw fall was pretty fascinating to me. I loved seeing him go through the motions and fight for what he wanted.

Lost in Between is the first book in the Finding Me Duet and if this book is any indication of what is to come, I can not wait for more. I loved everything about this book from start to finish. It was filled with lots of delicious, naughty and blush worthy sexy good times. There was also no shortage of swoon worthy and romantic moments. But there was also a great story-line and characters that you wanted to know more about. And I loved the air of mystery that surrounded the story in the end. I can not wait to get my hands on the conclusion of this story and see how this story unravels itself. I have a feeling it is going to take me on one crazy ride.
