Review: Falling Into You (Falling Stars #3) by A.L. Jackson

Richard Ramsey is the guitarist for the world’s hottest new band.
Gifted. Charismatic. Hot as sin.
Lend your ear, and he’ll steal your heart.
Nah, you can’t have his considering he left it in his hometown years ago.

He knows better than going back. But it’s his younger sister’s wedding, and there’s no way he can say no to that.

He should have known she would be there, invading his senses and making him thirst and hunger for what he wants most.

Violet Marin hates him for what he’s done. He left her emptyhanded with their wreckage strewn all around. She’s picked up the pieces and is living her life the best way that she can.

But their connection is fierce.
Their attraction unending.
It only takes one glance for their worlds to collide.
One touch to set them on fire.

But she doesn’t know the dark secrets he keeps. If he had understood the true price of fame, he would have known he’d sold his soul and this debt is something he cannot repay.

Letting her go is impossible, but will loving her cost it all?

A sensuous, captivating contemporary stand-alone romance in the Falling Stars series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L. Jackson . .

MY REVIEW

“Maybe I shouldn’t have given him that trust. Maybe I shouldn’t have given him the chance to lie. Maybe I should have known I would regret it all over again when I saw the guilt flash across his stunning face. But I was finished running.”

“I might have been the one who’d backed her against a wall, but she was the one that had me chained.”

“I think you might be every line I’ve ever written. Interwoven in every song. There before I even knew you existed.”

“She was the forever that had been written on my heart.”

5, You’re every song I’ve written, Stars!

Slay. Slay. Slay. A.L. Jackson’s words absolutely slay me. Falling into You is an incredibly well written and consuming love story. I am overwhelmed by the love and emotion this book has brought out in me. This is the kind of love story that you just know will be a part of you long after the end….

Falling into You is the exact definition of a second chance romance. I mean it delivers in spades.

A story of devotion ✔

A story with heartache ✔

A story with redemption ✔✔ 

Falling into You hit all the marks I was looking for and I am just completely blown away. Words can not even begin to express how I’m feeling right now. I feel like a jumbled mess as I try to write words to convey my feelings….

Here’s what I can tell you about Falling into You. Falling into You is EVERYTHING. I mean, absolutely everything. I trusted A.L. Jackson with my heart and her soulful writing does not disappoint. Richard and Violet will pull you into their story instantly. These two beautiful characters are real, flawed, and yet completely perfect. Their story is one of romance and pain, heartache and secrets, devotion, and redemption. It’s a story of choices; even if they’re the right ones at the time, they’re also the ones that end up breaking your heart. It’s a story filled with unexpected moments and twists that will leave you on the edge of your seat and completely breathless.

A.L. Jackson has woven a story that has left me spellbound and utterly consumed. It has invoked a buffet of feelings and has left its mark on my soul. Falling into You is unforgettable and is easily one of my favorite reads for 2020. It is a must-read for angst and second chance romance lovers.

Review: A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire (Blood and Ash #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice…

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

MY REVIEW

“The Dark One wasn’t someone most would dare to anger.”

“And that was another lie, another fact exposed to everyone who stood here now. I immediately knew yet another truth.”

“Let me help you replace the fear and helplessness. I can erase it. I promise.” “Let me be enough, at least for tonight.”

“I chose him because he made me feel like I was something other than the Maiden, and he saw me when no one else ever really did. He made me feel alive. He valued me for who I am and didn’t try to control me. And then it all seemed like a lie once I realized the truth of who he was and why he was a part of my life.”

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire picks up right where From Blood and Ash left off and left me utterly glued to the pages. Immediately we are thrust back into the story of Casteel and Poppy. Everything Poppy thought she knew was a lie and Casteel proves to be someone other than he seems. In spite of everything, Poppy and Casteel can not fight the pull they feel towards one another. Casteel’s plans for Poppy have changed and it will take a miracle to get Poppy on board. Will Poppy be able to trust Casteel’s motives? Will Poppy and Casteel give in to their feelings and make a real go of it? Will Casteel make his way home before all is lost? There’s only one way to find out….

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire delivered everything that I was hoping for in a follow to From Blood and Ash. Jennifer Armentrout has once again knocked out of the park with her fascinating characters and an intriguing plot. Her world-building with this series is off the charts and has me desperate to learn more about the lands and people that inhabit this area. The characters are real, flawed, and easy to connect with. Every single one of them adds to the story and keeps you coming back for more.

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire is gripping, engaging, and will leave you on the edge of your seat. There’s romance and secrets. Betrayal and oh, so many questions. Truths will be questioned and loyalties will be tested. War is coming and it’s only a matter of time before you have to make the choice as to which side you are on. And romance….OMG! The romance. It is oh, so sweet and was exactly what I needed to take my mind off the more nerve-wracking parts. If I thought I was in love with Poppy and Casteel before, they both took it up a notch in this book!

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire delivered on all fronts and was exactly the read I was looking for. Jennifer Armentrout has given us a fresh and exciting fantasy world with characters I can’t get enough of and an ending that will leave readers talking for quite some time. Once again, I have a million and one questions that I need to be answered asap!! One thing is for sure, I will be dying to get my hands on the next book and seeing how everything will come together in the end. And if I know Jennifer Armentrout, it’s going to be another wild, thrilling, and epic ride….

MY REVIEW

Devney Perry has knocked it out of the park with Wild Highway. When I think of second chance romances, I think of romance, angst and heartache. Wild Highway hit all those marks and took me on a journey I never saw coming…

Wild Highway is the second book in the Runaway Series and it follows the story of Gemma and Easton. From the moment you meet these two characters, you will be utterly consumed by them. I mean, you might as well cancel all of your plans for the day, because you’re going to want to just devour their story.

Gemma’s life has never been easy. Her home life was toxic and it forced her to leave home at a young age. Ever since she left home, she’s fought and worked hard for everything in her life. She’s tried to make something of herself and tried to find her place in the world. But, no matter what Gemma does, she always feels like she’s spinning her wheels. She’s never truly found her place, so when the opportunity to take a road trip to California presents itself, Gemma can’t turn it down. What started off as a road trip to clear her mind, ends up with a detour that turns her life completely upside down……

Wild Highway is literally everything that I could want and need in a second chance romance. The characters are real, flawed and filled to the brim with emotion. They are easy to relate to and the more you spend time with them, the more you want to see their story come together. Gemma & Easton had me hooked from the very first page. The chemistry between them was scorching and impossible to miss. They had the enemies to lovers vibe going and when you add their past to it, it only made things more intense. Gemma was strong and fierce. She had been through so much and just wanted to find her place in the world. And while Easton appears to be this gruff, broody man, there is more to him than meets the eyes. He’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders. He’s got major feelings for Gemma, but is afraid of letting her get close again. I loved watching these two try to figure things out and see if they could find their way back to one another again.

Wild Highway consumed me. It filled me with so many emotions and I couldn’t help but devour this book. Gemma and Easton were a force to be reckoned with. Their story proved to be everything that I wanted and wished for. It’s the kind of story that knocks you off of your feet and will keep you begging for more. It’s a story filled with love, angst and heartache. It’s a story of forgiveness and hope. It’s a story that will leave you with so many feels and the biggest smile on your face.

Wild Highway was a fantastic read from beginning to end and I just loved every single second of it. I am completely in love with the Runaway Series and can not wait to see what journey this author will take my heart on next!

EXCERPT

I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.
“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.
The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.
I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.
Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.
He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.
“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.
“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.
He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.
Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”
“Yes.”
“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.
I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”
His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”
Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.
But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.

Release Blitz with Review: Love The One You Hate by R.S. Grey

Posted on

R.S. Grey’s new standalone romance, Love the One You Hate is out now! Check it out and grab your copy today!

About Love the One You Hate (OUT NOW!)

Nicholas Hunt is the man I hate.

For good reason.

His opinion of me is tainted by prejudice even before my arrival at his grandmother’s estate, and my first impression of him is just as abysmal.

His arrogance and icy demeanor make it clear that he’s the type of man who’s best handled at a distance.

Fortunately, space shouldn’t be an issue inside this Gilded Age mansion and its lush gardens. If I stick with the servants and he keeps to his sailboat and vintage Porsche, we should hardly cross paths at all. Unfortunately, at Rosethorn, I find that all roads eventually lead to Nicholas Hunt.

Sparks fly as we spar at the dinner table. Fighting words are flung in the shadows of the palatial halls.

We hang suspended in our hatred of one another, painfully oblivious to the heat and tension that build with every moment we’re left alone. We’re liable to kill one another, I think…right up until my eyes land on his lips and a new feeling grips hold of me: lust.

What’s worse?

He knows it.

They say you should keep your enemies close, but when Nicholas tightens his grip on my waist and draws me near, I’m not sure if it’s out of loathing or love.

One thing’s for sure—I intend to find out.

MY REVIEW

“Touching Maren feels like that, like I’m defiling an angel, kissing my way straight to hell.”

R.S. Grey has done it again!! I fell totally, completely, absolutely head over heels for Nicholas and Maren. Love the One You Hate is definitely a favorite read of mine for 2020!

Love the One You Hate follows the story of Maren and Nicholas. When we first meet up with Maren, she is down on her luck. She’s working a thankless job where she has been accused of things due to her past. Maren’s life has been anything but easy, but she doesn’t let her past get her down and does the best that she can. Maren’s luck begins to change when she meets Cornelia. Cornelia has a proposition for Maren that seems too good to be true, but Maren would be stupid to turn down. As Maren spends time with Cornelia, she not only finds happiness, but discovers things about herself that she never expected. All is going well, until Cornelia’s grandson comes into the picture. Nicholas is arrogant and rude. He thinks he’s got Maren all figured out, but he couldn’t be further from the truth. The tension between Nicholas & Maren is sky high as sparks fly with every encounter and Nicholas & Maren will leave you hanging on every word, waiting to see what would happen next…..

Love the One You Hate is the kind of book that once you start, you won’t be able to put it down. Maren is such a likable character. Her character grows and blossoms so much. I loved seeing her transform and figure out what she wants out of this thing called life. And then we have Nicholas. In the beginning, he was rude and standoffish. He gave Mr. Darcy a run for his money. Yes, he had his reasons for the way he was. He wanted what was best for Cornelia and was afraid of people taking advantage of her. And let’s just say he made this story definitely rock a Pride and Prejudice vibe. Together these two had a lot of tension and brilliant chemistry. I loved the slow burning romance romance between them and the push & pull left me begging for more. I honestly couldn’t get enough of their story and couldn’t wait to see how things would play out.

Love the One You Hate is a fantastic read from beginning to end. Nicholas & Maren will have you falling head of heels in love with their story. Cornelia is a force to be reckoned with and is hands down, one of my favorite secondary characters. She’s real, honest and is the kind of woman that everyone needs in their lives. Love the One You Hate is a story of romance, angst and self discovery. And I loved every single second of it…..

MY REVIEW

“You decide what kind of life you want, and I’ll figure out how to give it to you.”

Review: From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.

A Maiden…

Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.

A Duty…

The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.

A Kingdom…

Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

Purchase on Amazon

MY REVIEW

“From Blood And Ash We Shall Rise.”

“I don’t care what you are.” “I care about who you are.”

“Some truths do nothing but destroy and decay what they do no obliterate. Truths do not always set one free. Only a fool who has spent their entire life being fed lies believes that.”

Poppy’s life has never been her own. As a maiden, she lives her life mostly in solitude waiting for the day that she will ascend. Unlike most maiden’s Poppy would rather spend her days training and learning to fight, then trying to be worthy of the “gods”. If only she was allowed to think or make decisions for herself….Hawke has sworn his life to protect the maiden as her royal guard. He drives Poppy crazy and makes her question everything she ever thought she knew….

From Blood and Ash is a refreshing and exciting new story from author Jennifer Armentrout. This book blends all the themes of fantasy and paranormal romance and brings forth an unforgettable tale of romance and betrayal…

From Blood and Ash captivated me from the very first page. Author Jennifer Armerntrout created a world and characters that I just couldn’t get enough of. From the moment I was introduced to Poppy, I was desperate to learn more about her story. Her life seemed so perfect, like she was being tasked with this incredible honor. But, as you dive deeper into the story, truths will be exposed and you will see that Poppy’s life is anything but perfect. And when Hawke comes into the picture, all bets are off. Hawke is everything that is forbidden to Poppy, but no matter how much she knows she should stay away, she can’t fight the pull. Hawke and Poppy had some pretty incredible chemistry and I loved watching the two of them together. Even though nothing is what is seems, and my heart was all tangled up in knots, I still found myself waiting with baited breath to see what would happen next.

My immediate thoughts after finishing this book is “What in the world did I just read?” and “I desperately need more.” From Blood and Ash is fresh and exciting and will leave you begging for more. This story has some amazing world building and I loved all of the fantasy elements. Even if you are not a fantasy reader, I promise this as story that you can get behind and just devour. From action and danger, to romance and intrigue, to exciting twists and turns, From Blood and Ash left me on the edge of my seat and had my heart racing.

Jennifer Armentrout totally knocked it out of the park with this book and as the story comes to an end, I’m left with a ton of questions and I can not wait to have them all answered….

Posted on

But I’m a man on a mission, and I’ve got everything riding on this.

MY REVIEW

“Change is coming whether you want it or not. I know you like to dance with the devil, but watch yourself, girl. He always demands his due.”

“Brace yourself, Magnolia. Another hurricane is coming.”

“Once and for all, the winds of change are at my back and guiding me home. Guiding me to the future. Guiding me to her.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dying and I mean dying for Magnolia to have her story told. And let me tell you, Meghan March does not disappoint. Creole Kingpin was all that and a bag of chips. This book pulled out all the stops and left me begging for more. Meghan March stepped it up a notch with Creole Kingpin and weaved a story filled with romance and suspense that will have readers hanging on to each and every word….

Creole Kingpin follows the story of Magnolia & Moses. Magnolia and Moses’ story will suck you in from the very first page. Magnolia and Moses share a tumultuous past. It took Magnolia forever to move on from the state Moses left her in. He was the one that got away and broke her heart into a million pieces. It will be 15 years before these two will be reunited. Magnolia is nothing like the woman Moses left behind. Magnolia is strong, determined and 100% independent. Moses knows he has a battle ahead of him and will stop at nothing to win back the woman he loves. The road won’t be easy, but nothing worth having ever is…

Creole Kingpin is a captivating and suspenseful romance. The characters are everything and their story is utterly intriguing. There’s romance. There’s suspense. There’s a million and one questions that I am just dying to have answered. And the twists….OMG, the twists. They will really keep you on your toes. And if those twists weren’t enough for you, Meghan March leaves you with a cliffhanger ending that is sure to leave you dizzy. I mean, it’s like watching an accident in slow motion. You see it. You know it’s coming, but it still manages to shock you and knock you off of your feet.

Creole Kingpin was everything I wanted, needed and didn’t know I was looking for. Magnolia and Moses’ story will captivate, intrigue you and leave you begging for more. I loved everything about this book, from beginning to end and can not wait to get my hands on the epic conclusion to Magnolia and Moses’ story!

MY REVIEW

“We were swaying, swept up in this unstoppable dance that I never saw coming.”

“You are the true definition of it, Mia. Beauty. You stole my breath the first time I saw you. You are the creator of it. I won’t taint that.”

“Kissing you feels like kissing the stars.”

5 Soul Searing Stars!!

I feel like I’m always saying this when I read an A.L. Jackson book, but man, does she ever have a way with her words. The lyrical flow and power of her words just slay me.

Leif and Mia captured my heart from the moment I met the two of them. They were both beautifully broken, and undeniably drawn to one another.

Review: Riven Knight (Tin Gypsy #2) by Devney Perry

Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday. But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble.

Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge.

Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom.

And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.

MY REVIEW

“I just poured my heart out and he’d taken it in his hands and squeezed it to bits.”

“She was important. She was special and precious. And I had the power to destroy her.”

“Silence was my armor. Because if I cut myself open, I’d never be able to sew the wounds shut.”

“Genevieve had the power to destroy me completely.”

“Isaiah looked into the mirror and saw everlasting broken pieces, but maybe my broken pieces would fit
with his. Together, maybe we’d make a whole.”

When I finished Gypsy King, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Riven Knight. I had a million and one questions about Isaiah and Genevieve and couldn’t wait to find out my answers…

Riven Knight picks up right where Gypsy King left off and took my heart for one wild, heart-breaking ride. Riven Knight follows the story of Genevieve and Isaiah. At first glance, their situation appears to be nothing more than a marriage of convenience, a lie. But there is so much more to Genevieve and Isaiah’s story than meets the eye. They did what they did keep each other safe and to hopefully put some ghosts to rest. But, what they didn’t count on was the very real danger Genevieve would be put in. They didn’t count on their walls being shattered and for feelings to stir. Will Isaiah be able to keep Genevieve safe? Will Genevieve break through Isaiah’s walls and bring him back to life? Will Genevieve ever find out who murdered her mother? Those questions and many more will be answered in Riven Knight.

Riven Knight is a well written and heart-breaking story. This book hits the ground running and never looks back. The characters are real and flawed and perfectly imperfect. Their story-line is captivating and will have you begging for more. There is romance. There is drama. There is danger and action. There are shocking twists and turns that will leave you hanging on every word. Riven Knight was everything I wanted, needed and then some. This book isn’t just a love story. It is a story of family. A story of hope. A story of forgiveness and revenge. Genevieve and Isaiah were both broken and hurt by their pasts, and I for one couldn’t help but root for these two to find their happily ever after.

There’s not much else to say about Riven Knight other than I loved it. From beginning to end, I just loved it. I had the best time getting swept up in Genevieve and Isaiah’s story and can not wait to see what Devney Perry has in store for us next.

Review: Shadows (Bayou Magic #1) by Kristen Proby

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Kristen Proby, comes an all new paranormal romance set in the mystical city of New Orleans…

I am never alone. Not even when I am alone.
I see the unquiet dead, the souls that wander through the French Quarter.
They can’t move on, and I can’t stop seeing them.
I wear malachite for protection, and I control what I let in. It’s the only way to stay sane. Everything changes the day Cassian Winslow joins my ghost walking tour and knocks my world off its axis with green eyes the color of the stone around my neck.
An unspeakable evil is loose in New Orleans, taking young women and leaving a bloodbath in his wake. More shadows lurking for me. More unhappy dead. There might be a way to stop it.
Open myself up to Cassian.
If I do, it could spell his death.
But if I don’t, it’s mine.

MY REVIEW

“I’m drawn to you in ways I can’t explain.”

“This man doesn’t merely kiss and call it a day. No, he kisses like it’s his damn job. Like kissing me is the only thing in the world he can think about. As if he’s wanted to kiss me for decades.”

Shadows is a haunting and intriguing paranormal romance that will have leave you on the edge of your seat right until the very end…

Shadows is unlike anything I’ve read from author Kristen Proby before. From the moment I dove into Cash & Brielle’s story, I was hooked. I loved the New Orleans setting and all of the creepy elements the city alone adds to the story. Not only do you have the perfect setting, but when you add 3 unique sisters to the plot line, you are destined for a treat.

Now, I’m not going to go into a ton of details, because I want you to be just as surprised as I was. Shadows is a thrilling and creepy paranormal romance. You may think you know what you’re getting into when you pick this book up, but I promise you Kristen Proby has a lot surprises in store for you. The characters are complex, yet so easy to connect with. The paranormal story-line was intriguing and captivating. It was fresh and unique and kept me glued to the pages. The romance and chemistry between Brielle and Cash was intense and off the charts. Cash was the ultimate book boyfriend. He was supportive, protective and oh, so swoon worthy.

I loved everything about Shadows from beginning to end. This book is the perfect Halloween treat. It’s well written and consuming. It’s sexy and thrilling. It’s filled with mystery and suspense and things that go bump in the night. It will keep you on your toes and it will keep you guessing right until the very end.

Shadows is the first book in the Bayou Magic Series and I can not wait to see where this series is going to go next!!
