It’s here!!!!!! ONE WILD NIGHT is LIVE!

I had an absolute blast writing this collaboration with one of my very best friends, Rebecca Shea, and we’re so proud to bring it to you. It’s a departure from what we typically write, but there is something about it that just hit the spot 😉

I hope you love Paxton and Kaylee’s super fun, sexy story ❤

Blurb:

A flirty, sexy contemporary romance from bestselling authors, A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea . . . 

Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies.

Living in L.A. her entire life, she knows the glitz and glam of Hollywood is just an illusion.

That is until she stumbles head first into the arms of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor.

It was just another day for Paxton Myles on the red carpet until the blue-eyed beauty literally stumbles at his feet.

A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her.

After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quite life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.

When Kaylee’s world comes crashing down, can Paxton convinceher that their one wild night could turn into forever?


My Review

“It was as if she held the entire world in the palm of her hand. Every room she walked into, she owned. Every conversation,  she commanded. All of it with a flick if her hand and a twitch of her smile. Magnetic.”

“It takes three steps to get to her. Three steps before her bright blue eyes look up at me. Three steps is all it takes for me to decide this girl is going to be mine.”

“Everything about her is beautiful and has me wanting her. I want to know this woman inside and out. The nervous look in her eyes, the vulnerability written across her face…and the way her body reacts to me, tells me she’s scared, but she’s trusting me. Everything about her is perfect. “

“No man had ever affected me the way Paxton Myles had. He ruined me in the best ways. I honestly doubted another could compare. And there was just something about him…something more than that megawatt smile and his mind-blowing kisses.”

One Wild Night is the story that I have been waiting for. From the moment I heard that A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea were teaming up to write a novel together, I have been anxiously waiting to get my greedy hands on it. And let me tell you, these ladies do not disappoint. Their writing is flawless and blends seamlessly. Their unique writing styles shining through, providing me with one incredible romance.  One Wild Night was all that and a bag of chips. This book left me with the most ridiculous smile on my face and a totally full heart.

One Wild Night is a quick and sexy read. It was fun, flirty and so full of heart and of coure swoon worthy. This romance hit the ground running and completely stole my heart. Paxton and Kaylee were so easy to fall in love with. They were two people from two totally different worlds who were just destined for each other. They just fit and things were just effortless between the two of them. Their connection was instant and their romance a total whirlwind, but I honestly couldn’t get enough of these two together.

I loved everything about this story from beginning to end and fell helplessly in love with Kaylee and Paxton. I couldn’t help but have a smile on my face and root for their happily ever after. Kaylee and Paxton’s story was the perfect romance to spend the afternoon getting lost in. All I can say is give me more. I can’t wait to see what these two bring to the table next.

Review: Double Score by K.L. Grayson

Posted on

There’s nothing I love more than scoring.

I know what you’re probably thinking, but I’m talking about goals, not men. My entire life revolves around three things: soccer, and my two best friends, Ryan and Grant.

I’ve loved them since they were rowdy boys tearing up the town. Growing up, we shared everything from popsicles and toys to hopes, dreams, and the occasional jail cell. Now that we’re older, they’ve been known to share women.

But they haven’t shared me.

Never me.

Until now.

College is over. So is soccer. And I only have one goal in mind…scoring double.

Buy on Amazon


My Review

Known for her emotionally driven and all consuming love stories, K.L. Grayson has a naughty side that she has unleashed upon her readers. For quite some time now,  K.L. Grayson has teasing us about a naughty little short story she has been working on and boy, does she she ever pull out all the stops with Double Score! Double Score is unlike anything K.L. Grayson has ever written before.

Double Score is a well written, quick and completely sexy read. I mean this book is crazy sexy and scorching hot….And boy do I ever mean scorching. This book is so hot, it will have you fanning yourself and leave you blushing. Definitely a book to lock yourself away in your room with.

Double Trouble is a consuming love story between three friends. Their story is intense, filled with insta-love and is 100% naughty. There truly are no words for the sexiness that K.L. Grayson has brought to this story. Even with all the sexiness, K.L. Grayson still delivers a romance that is filled with a lot of heart and that will keep you begging for more. Now, I will warn you this book might not be everyones cup of tea, but if you’re a fan of K.L. Grayson’s writing and are looking for something different and a whole lot of spicy, then I definitely think you should check this book out. Double Trouble is loads of fun, a bit naughty and totally sexy….

Review: The Prophecy (Titan #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

History is on repeat…

Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that’s standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them — without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him — everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.

A price must be paid…

Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best — and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she’s not fighting just for herself — she’s fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled….

My Review

“What I feel for you increases every waking moment and sometimes that scares the hell out of me, but I love you. Yesterday. Today. A thousand tomorrows from now, I will be in love with you.”

“Sentinels weren’t suicidal. They were just dangerously brave.”

I can not believe it’s over!!! When I first began this journey many years ago and met Seth in the Covenant Series, never in a million years did I think I would love his character as much as I do. He was smart mouthed, annoying and at times, a total jerk. But, as I read The Titan Series, I really got to know Seth. I got to see who he truly is and despite my original thoughts about his character, I couldn’t help but root for his happy ending. And with each book, I fell deeper for Seth. His & Josie’s story was everything and then some. I loved that he proved me wrong. I loved that he met his match in Josie. I’m glad I took this journey and gave his story a chance. If not, I would have missed out one epic and amazing story. A story of love. A story of loss. A story of sacrifice. A story that would have you on the edge of your seat, right until the very end…

The Prophecy is the fourth and final book in the the epic Titan Series. This is it. Every single moment has all come down to this. The Prophecy was everything that I could have possibly wanted and asked for in an ending to a series. It was action packed. It was thrilling. I was on the edge of my seat and there was no way I was going to put this book down. I couldn’t help but devour the words, yet want to savor it all at the same time. I feel as though I was holding my breath the entire time I was reading this book.

The Prophecy was filled with lots of danger and suspense. There was action and unbelievable twists. There were turns that blew your mind and moments that broke your heart and had you wanting to throw your kindle. There were moments when your heart just felt so full and you didn’t think you could possibly swoon any harder. I am telling you, this book had it all. Add in some cameos from some old friends and new ones made along the way, and you’ve got the perfect story.

The Prophecy is filled with addictive writing and characters that will consume your every thought. This story brought out so many feels and emotions, I just can’t believe that it is over. The love and strength that Seth and Josie have is unforgettable. Everything that they went through was completely worth it and even though their story is coming to an end, I know they will never be forgotten.

The Prophecy took me on one epic, thrilling and unforgettable ride and as sad as I am to say goodbye, I for one can not wait to see what adventure this author has lying ahead for us next….

Review: On Hart’s Boardwalk (On Dublin Street #6.7) by Samantha Young

Posted on

One of New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young’s most beloved couples returns for the first time in a brand new novella set ten years after her blockbuster bestseller Before Jamaica Lane…

Nate and Liv have a great life together but they miss the spontaneity and freedom they enjoyed early on in their romance. Careers and their children have inevitably kept them busy, so when Nate discovers Liv is feeling disconnected from him, he plans an anniversary trip to the idyllic seaside town of Hartwell, Delaware. There he hopes they will have the opportunity they’ve been craving—a chance to reinvent themselves and fall in love all over again.

With each new day comes a new adventure, from wedding crashing at the five-star boardwalk hotel to pretending they are two strangers having a chance encounter at the boardwalk bar. In the midst of this daring, sexually charged game of romantic rediscovery, Nate and Liv discover the only constant they need is each other.

My Review

“I wanted him to be beyond all reasoning and take me how he wanted to take me. No thought. No care. Just fuck me like he couldn’t breathe another second in this world if he didn’t.”

“I can’t lose you, babe. You’d take my soul with you.”

More On Dublin Street? Sign me up, please! On Dublin Street is one of those series that I can never get enough of and will never, ever tire of. So, when I heard that Nate and Liv were getting a novella, I couldn’t wait to dive into it.

Nate and Liv have the life they’ve always dreamed of: perfect family, loving marriage and busy jobs. But, somewhere along the way, these two started to drift. The idea of being disconnected terrifies Liv and makes her doubts. So, when Nate surprises Liv with a romantic anniversary getaway, this might just be what these two needed to reignite their fires…

On Hart’s Boardwalk was a quick and easy read for me. Since it is a novella, I had no problem devouring it in just a few short hours. From the moment I picked this book up and started reading, it felt as though no time had passed. I easily fell into Nate and Liv’s story. One of the things that I really loved about Nate and Liv was how easy they were to relate to. The problems and fears were real and are close to what a lot of couples go through. Romance isn’t always hearts and flowers. There will be tough times, and I for one really enjoyed seeing how Nate and Liv would tackle the heard times.

On Hart’s Boardwalk was well written and entertaining. I loved how it mixed the On Dublin Street Series with the Hart’s Boardwalk one. I thought that the two blended very well together and I enjoyed visiting with the characters form Hart’s Boardwalk.

On Hart’s Boardwalk might be a quick read, but I promise you, Samantha Young does not disappoint. In this novella, she has managed to give us a heartfelt and realistic story that is filled with heart, love, angst and fight. It hit all the marks for me and left me begging for more. On Hart’s Boardwalk is a wonderful quick read to spend the afternoon getting swept away in.

ON HART’S BOARDWALK by Samantha Young

Excerpt

Although Nate had agreed to wait to have sex until we played out our little strangers in a bar fantasy, I could tell he was disgruntled. For some reason his irritation made me want to torment him even more. After we showered (separately) and dressed, I grabbed his hand when we walked down to breakfast, trailing the fingertips of my free hand over the skin on his forearm exposed by his T-shirt.

Walking down the stairs he frowned at me. “You’re doing that deliberately.”

“Are you saying I don’t get to touch you at all until tomorrow night?”

“No.” He suddenly stopped and pressed me up against the wall of the stairwell, his mouth inches from mine. His hand, the one not holding mine, slipped under my sundress, his fingertips caressing their way up my inner thigh.

“Nate,” I gasped, looking down the stairs to make sure the entrance was empty.

“You tease me, babe…” His hot breath whispered against my lips. “I tease you tenfold in return.”

I fought with the desire flooding me and the concern over disrespecting our very nice inn owner. My concern won out and I reached for his wrist under my dress and forcefully removed his hand with a flash of ire in my eyes that made him smirk in triumph. “Not here.”

“Just playing your game.” He stood back and then began leading me down the stairs like nothing had happened.

There was only one other couple in the dining hall that early in the morning, an older couple who smiled warmly at us and greeted us ‘hello’ as we grabbed some coffee from the buffet area.

We’d just taken a seat at a table when Aydan came out of the kitchen and beamed at us. “You two are up early. Jetlag?”

“Yeah,” I said, fighting off a yawn. “I’m still kind of feeling it actually. But this will help.” I raised my coffee cup.

“So will some food.” She handed us each a menu. “I’ll be back in a minute to take your order.”

We were looking over the small menu and I was trying to decide between scrambled eggs, potatoes, and bacon; pancakes, maple syrup and bacon; or waffles. “I forgot how good breakfast is here.” I glanced over at my husband, who seemed less excited than me about breakfast. “You’re getting the egg white frittata, aren’t you?”

Nate used to indulge more food-wise but he’d found, as we all found, that he couldn’t metabolize crappy food as well as he used to. So, he only indulged every now and then.

“Aye.” He nodded, his eyes twinkling with amusement. He knew it bugged me that he had more willpower than I did.

“I’m getting the waffles,” I immediately decided.

Nate laughed and leaned over to caress the top of my ass, which thankfully was hidden by the back of my chair from anyone else’s few. “You eat whatever you want, babe. We’ll both enjoy the fruits of that labor.”

I should have glared at him for feeling me up in the breakfast room of this quaint inn, but I couldn’t, because it felt like I had my old Nate back. The guy who made me feel sexy and wanted no matter what. So instead I gave him a soft smile.

For some reason my reaction made his gaze turn liquid with heat and he impulsively leaned over, cupped my face in his hand and kissed me. Hard. Deep. Quick.

When he let me go I couldn’t even think long enough to be embarrassed that he’d just Frenched me in front of an elderly couple who were trying to eat their breakfast. I could only blink, dazed, my lips wet and waiting for more. “What was that for?”

“Because I love you.” He shrugged, like it was most obvious answer in the world.

Before I could say anything else the sound of Bailey Hartwell’s raised voice met our ears from somewhere near reception. “It’s ridiculous that’s why!”

Nate and I shot each other amused looks, and pretended to peruse the menu even though I knew were both listening in. Nosy buggers.

Her voice was lower now, and the fact that we hadn’t heard another voice reply suggested

she was on the phone. “Vaughn, we have a house,” she hissed. “We don’t need another… why would you sell it? It’s beautiful… we don’t need to buy a house together to be together… it’s a waste of money…” there was a longer stretch of silence. “Okay, if you’re that intent on wasting money why don’t we just strip the house out and make it the way we both want it… it sits right on the water…. Stop being romantic when I’m trying to be practical, you know it confuses me… Stop it, I’m at the inn.” Her voice dropped even lower. Her breath seemed to catch. “You’re going to pay for that, Tremaine… no… no… Vaughn… okay, fine…. I love you too, you, handsome bastard.”

That seemed to be the end of the conversation, and I turned to Nate, laughter bubbling in my throat. “That sounded familiar.”

He grinned. “Didn’t it.”

“I don’t think our inn owner is going to Scotland anytime soon.”

“No?”

“No. If she’s got what I’ve got, she’s staying put.”

Release Blitz with Review: Justice (Creed Brothers #1) by K. C. Lynn

JUSTICE: CREED BROTHERS BOOK ONE

AUTHOR: KC LYNN

RELEASE DAY: FEBRUARY 21, 2018

BLURB:

Fate made us brothers, loyalty made us family.

A bond that runs deeper than the Mississippi, my brothers and I might not have the same DNA but what we share is far more powerful. Our loyalty to one another and the man who made us a family is stronger than those bound by blood.

The most sought out sharp shooters in the country, our paths were certain, before one woman changed my life and altered the relationship I have with my brothers.

Ryanne Lockwood disappeared without a trace but her memory never faded, torturing me on the darkest nights. Until a twist of fate leads me back to her, sending our worlds to collide once more, and this time, there will be no escaping me.

***

Justice Creed’s bad boy appeal caught my attention from the moment he rolled into town. For years I watched from afar, swallowing up the rumors that surrounded him.

Until we shared a night of forbidden passion. One that destroyed my heart and reshaped my soul, and it sent me fleeing from the only town I’ve ever known.

Now, years later, he’s barged back into my life, uncovering a secret I’ve worked so hard to keep and it’s one that will change our lives forever.

My Review

“He yanks me  against his hard body and takes my mouth in a fiery kiss. Demanding–dominating–and I completely give into it, drowning in my own forbidden desire. “

“There’s no fighting it. This need, the magnetic pull between us is stringer than us both and I succumb to it, letting it drown me in my own desire.”

“Love is blind and knows no color.” ” We are family and nothing will ever change that “

“Family is what we make it and whom we make it with. They aren’t always blood or the people that brought us into the world, but they are always loyal, true and love without fault.”

Justice. Justice. Justice. Oh, how I have been waiting for you!!! I didn’t think it would be possible to love another series as much as I loved KC Lynn’s Men of Honor, but let me tell you, KC Lynn has knocked it out of the park with Justice. The creed brothers have taken my heart and have given me a run for my money. Justice is an emotionally driven and powerful second chance romance and one that I highly recommend checking out asap!

Justice is darker and a bit more intense than what I’m used to from this author, but it is no less amazing. This story is well written, intriguing and will capture your heart from the very first page. This book is the most unconventional of stories. A bond of brotherhood that only the Creed brothers can understand. A family that was made out of choice and not with what they were given. A romance and chemistry unlike any other. A story that is destined to make you feel everything and put your heart through the ringer…

From the moment I met Justice and Ryanne, I was 100% hooked. I fell in love with Justice and Ryanne’s friendship; the innocence and sweetness of it. I loved their interactions and waited with baited breath for the moment that these two would become more than just friends. As the years progressed, the fire between Ryanne and Justice only burned hotter and when these two did finally come together….it led to some sinfully hot moments. I mean moments that will have you blushing and fanning yourself. Justice takes alpha to a whole and I mean a whole other level and is probably one of the most sinful men I have ever encountered in a book. And Ryanne…She was nothing like I expected. Sweet. Innocent. She loves with everything that she has and is fiercely protective of those she lets into her life. Her life has been anything but easy, and she was everything I could have asked for in a partner for Justice.

Justice is one of those stories that you just can’t help but fall in love with. It’s dark, yet heartwarming. It’s captivating and intriguing. It’s filled with love and pain, hope and despair. It is a story of family and finding where you belong. It is a story of forgiveness and sacrifices made in the name of love. It is a story of love; real, messy and perfect love. It is a story that will make you feel everything and leave you begging for more.

Justice has completely stolen my heart. I am just filled with so many emotions right now and am so in love with this book that I have just read. I loved every heartbreaking, angsty, pull at your heart, melt your panties off moment. KC Lynn has once again outdone herself with another phenomenal, breathtaking, yet complex love story. The Creed Brothers Series is off to one heck of a start and I will be sitting here waiting impatiently to get my hands on the next book in this series!!

Release Blitz with Review: Living Out Loud by Staci Hart

LIVING OUT LOUD, the next in Staci Hart’s Austen Series, is LIVE! I adored this modern love story inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility. Everything about this book had me smiling and swooning! Hart takes us back to the world of Wasted Words and gives us a love story you will not soon forget!

Living Out Loud
Staci Hart
Publication Date: February 1, 2018
Cover Photo: Perrywinkle Photography
Cover Design: QuirkyBird Designs

When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.

Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.

See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Stand in the middle of Times Square: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.

Two things not on her list: Greg Brandon and Will Bailey. And just like that, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.

List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.

*Standalone contemporary romance Inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.*

My Review

“My life was just a single heartbeat in the life of the universe.”

“I was fucked, and in the moment, I didn’t even have the good sense to realize it.”

“Mine. It was stupid and archaic, savage even, but the instinct was deep and automatic. That single word sang unbidden from my heart at the mere thought of her with another man. Maybe it was because part of me was already hers. Any choice I had to the contrary had long passed, if there had ever been a choice.

More Wasted Words?! Yes please! Ever since Greg’s character was introduced, I have been waiting for him to get his own story. He is one of the sweetest, best guys ever and I couldn’t wait to see him get his happily ever after. So, when Living Out Loud ended up on my kindle, I dropped everything and dove head first into Greg’s story.

Living Out Loud had me from page one. From the moment I dove into Annie and Greg’s story, I just knew it was going to special, I mean hello, it is a part of The Wasted Words Series!! Of course it was going to knock my socks off. And let me tell you, it totally did. Living Out Loud is a book of firsts and of second chances. It is a story of living and making most out of your time. It is a story of letting go of your fears and experiencing new things; of not being afraid to live out loud.

Annie is one of those characters that just steals your heart instantly. She is so fun and has the best outlook on life, despite the cards she has been handed. Her happiness is contagious and you can’t help but want to surround yourself with her light. You just want to try to make all of her dreams come true. And Greg….He didn’t stand a chance when Annie ran into him. He is one of the best guys you will ever meet and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for those he cares out. He tried to fight the feelings had for Annie, but a connection like theirs was meant to be explored. I adored their friendship and the burn between them. All the small and big moments made their story completely worth wild.

Living Out Loud was a fabulous read from beginning to end. Staci Hart is the queen of swoon worthy and unforgettable words. No one and I mean no one does romance and Jane Austen retellings quite like this author. And Living Out Loud is no exception. It was well written and entertaining. It is a story about putting others happiness ahead of your own. It is a story of love and friendship. It is a story of moments and how they have the power to change everything….

Living Out Loud is an amazing addition to the Wasted Words Series and was totally, 100% worth the wait!

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Review Tour: Bad For You (Dirty Deeds #3) by J. Daniels

“If you’re a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book.” -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word

He didn’t want to be bad. He just didn’t have a choice…

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it–she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected–especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most…is to let each other go?

“The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!” –Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word

My Review

“This man had a stare unlike any stare. Equal parts intense and intimidating.”

“Rejection was one of the worst pains one could ever feel. Scars healed. Bruises went away. Rejection was lasting. It was a memory you could conjure up at any time and hurt from, over and over again. It never left you.”

“You put food in front of a starving man, he’s going to eat it. No matter what he thinks he deserves or not. It was about survival. And Shayla was keeping me alive.”

“I wanna be yours” “You at my back, stickin’ up for me, and there when I’m fuckin’ terrified…I wanna go to you and I want you tellin’ me I can. I wanna be your, Shayla.”

Wow! What a way to kick off 2018 than with a book that totally knocks your socks off! I never saw this book coming. Not for one single minute. It snuck up on me and grabbed me from the very first page. I was completely, 100% consumed with Sean and Shay’s story. My eyes were glued to the pages and I didn’t want to put this book down……

Bad For You is incredibly well written and is a beautiful second chance romance. This story is one of redemption and it will steal your breath away. As I’m sitting here, trying to type up this review, I am at a total loss. I have no words. I am speechless in the most amazing way…..

From the moment I met Sean, I was dying to know more about him. He was quiet, hard, and didn’t let anyone get close or in. But, I just knew there had to more to this man than meets the eye and boy was I not wrong. Sean’s life has been anything but easy. He has lived through and done things that no one ever should have. This is the kind of man that upon meeting, you just want to protect him with everything you have and bring a smile to his face. He is not perfect, but his motives came from a good place. This man with his tough exterior had the biggest heart. He pulled at my heartstrings and just made me ache. Ache for the life he had. Ache for all that he lost. Ache for all he should have. And Shay was the light Sean desperately needed in his life. Shay is full of life and love. She is hard-working, devoted and will fiercely protect those who are in her life. Shay is definitely the kind of woman you’d want taking your back. She sees the good in everyone and when she meets Sean, she can’t possibly stay away.

I love, love, loved the slow build between Shay and Sean. Their feelings and interactions were so real and and genuine. They didn’t jump into a relationship straight away. They got to know one another. They built the foundation. There was no rushing it. They waited until just the right moment, and then all bets were off. These two together were just magic. They got each other in a way that no one else could possibly understand. Their chemistry was scorching and the pull….UGH!! I just couldn’t get enough. I loved watching their story unfold and seeing them handle all the hurdles along the way.

Bad for You was an amazing read from beginning to end. It stole my heart and turned my world upside down. From sad moments, to funny ones, to moments that had you bursting with joy and swooning so hard, you thought your heart was just going to burst out of your chest; this book had it all. This book was so much more than I ever expected and is a story that will remain with me for a long time to come.
