Review: Rewrite by Stephanie Rose

Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after.

But our story was never that simple.

I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later, he was back—and wanting me the way I’d always longed for him. Except now, I belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn’t alter the past.

I didn’t want to rewrite my future.

Brianna was always more than my best friend. She was the shining light in my black hole of an existence, and I loved her with every cell and bone in my body. I wasn’t good enough for her, though—more the villain than the hero in our fairy tale. When I had to leave, I vowed to come back a better man—for her. But when I finally did return, she wasn’t waiting for me anymore. She had someone new, her very own Prince Charming. Did that mean our story was over? I couldn’t change our past.

It was time to rewrite our ending.

My Review

“I met the love of my life when I was five years old.”

“Second chances and opportunities aren’t meant to be squandered just because they aren’t easy.”

“This was how it always should have been. I wished I could rewrite our story. I’d fix it so I’d never lose him in the first place, and we’d never hurt anyone on our way back to each other.”

“There was never a single second I didn’t belong to you.” “All I ever wanted was  you.”

Stephanie Rose is the master of swoon worthy words and unforgettable second chance romances. The bar for this book was set high and I couldn’t wait for Stephanie Rose to bring on the feels….And boy did she ever deliver.

Rewrite is everything that you could possibly ask for in a second chance/friends to lovers romance. From the moment we were introduced to Josh and Briana, I was a total goner. I just knew their story was going to be epic and was going to tug at my heart. Josh and Briana had the relationship that everyone dreams about: Best friends since children, and a love that slowly develops over time. Their journey is not an easy one. It is one filled with many years of hurt and yearning. But, the one thing that remained, no matter how fragile it was, was their friendship. Josh and Briana had a connection that most would never understand. Their love defy’s everything and has you wishing for the best possible outcome. With so many missed chances and opportunities, I couldn’t help but be glued to the pages to see just how Briana and Josh’s story would play out.

Rewrite is beautifully written and will give you all the feels. This story is incredibly sweet and one that you can’t get enough of. There is so much heart and pain. So much love and hope. This is a story of the forever kind of love that you will do anything to protect and will fight with your last dying breath.

Stephanie Rose has an incredible way with words. With relateable characters and strong emotions, she makes you feel as though this story is just for you. The emotions are real and the story will just leave you breathless. I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end and would definitely recommend checking this story out.

My Review

“He’s not a ghost. He’s worse. He’s the frigging boogyman, whispered about in the shadows but never mentioned in polite company, almost as if saying his name will make him appear. And no one wants that.”

“I’m ruthless, not arrogant, and you’re about to learn the difference.”

“Nothing is what it seems. Or maybe everything is exactly what it seems.”

Holy Hell! What an exciting read. Meghan March promised her dirtiest and darkest read to date and boy did she ever deliever! Ruthless King was fantastic, thrilling and an utterly captivating read. This story is fast paced and will suck you in from the very first page. From the moment you meet Keira, you will be hooked on her story. Keira is smart mouthed, devoted to her work and isn’t the kind of girl to bend to anyone’s will. When Keira finds herself suddenly indebted to Mount all bets are off…. Mount is ruthless, powerful, 100% alpha and is the kind of man that always gets what he wants. Everyone fears him and no one dares to tell him no. And Mount is about to turn Keira’s life totally upside down.

Together, Mount and Keira are a force to be reckoned with. The sparks and chemistry just burn up the pages. Mount will push your limits and leave you wanting a connection you never knew you needed.  Mount’s filthy mouth and Keira’s fiery attitude add to the incredible push and pull and will leave you salivating for the next encounter.

Ruthless King is dark, exciting, and one hell of a start to the Mount Trilogy. This book is sexy as hell and will have you devouring the pages unable to do anything else, but read this book. I was totally consumed by Keira and Mount’s story. The story-line captivating me and keeping me on my toes.

Ruthless King will shock you, surprise you and leave you desperately waiting for the next installment. I for one can not wait to see what will happen next!

Review: Bourbon Kingdom (Bourbon #3) by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything.
Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.
They’re everywhere.
Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.
But how can I believe her?
Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart.
In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

My Review

OMG! OMG! OMG! Just when I think my poor heart can’t take anymore, I get my hands on this book. After the crazy ending to Bourbon Deceit, I just had to start Bourbon Kingdom right away. I was shocked by the way things ended in the last book and was desperate to see how things will play out. And let me tell you, you think your emotions went on a crazy ride before….well you haven’t seen anything yet.

In the final chapter of Jett and Goldie’s story, the author pulls out all the stops and takes you for the craziest ride yet. I was hooked on Bourbon Kingdom from the very first page and could not read the pages fast enough. I was utterly captivated and had to see how Jett and Goldie’s story would end.

Bourbon Kingdom shocked me and frustrated me. The angst pulled at my heart so hard and had me yelling at my kindle. This book was filled with so many unexpected surprises and great twists….Ugh!! I just couldn’t get enough. Bourbon Kingdom is the epic and satisfying conclusion to this series and let me tell you, it has it all!! From drama to angst. To sexy and intense moments. To crazy and unexpected twists. This book will have you holding your breath and I promise, you won’t be able to put it down. I loved everything about this book from beginning to end.

Review: Bourbon Deceit (Bourbon #2) by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.
Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure.
And I own every last part of it.
But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart.
My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us.
There are people trying to bring me down.
Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all.
It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl.
I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.

My Review

“I wasn’t looking at the strong man who dominated the bedroom and exuded confidence everywhere he went, no, instead I was staring into the eyes of a confused and lost man who looked like his heart was breaking in half.”

“You have my gut and mind all twisted together from the way your breath caresses my skin. You make my heart beat faster and my brain slow down, Jett. There is not stopping it when you’re around me.”

Ahhh!!! What a terrific read!! Bourbon Deceit picks up right where Bourbon Sins left off and boy does it ever take you for a crazy ride. Bourbon Deceit is fast paced, sexy and intriguing as ever. There are secrets and lies and danger in the air. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I was powerless to keep from devouring it.

Jett and Goldie have stolen my heart and I know I will never get enough of the two of them. Their pull and connection is intense. They are devoted to each other and Jett will do anything to protect Goldie. Jett and Goldie have a lot of obstacles to overcome on their journey to happily ever after, but I for one can’t help but root for these two lost souls. I just love the two of them together. I love how Goldie has thawed out Jett’s black heart and I can not wait to see where their story is going to go….

My Review

“She was the kind of woman who could make a grown man stumble on his feet. Stunning. Gorgeous. Too sexy for her own damned good. Or maybe mine”

“All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed.”

“In my experience, joy is a choice. Life is rough. Don’t expect it not to be. But if aren’t laughin’, we’re crying. Choose to laugh. Choose what brings you joy. And when you choose you path, it may not always be the easiest one, but it’ll always be the right one.”

You will find it impossible to put this down and if you’re like me, wild horses won’t be able to take you away…

Told from dual points of view, Show Me the Way is the first book in an all new series from author AL Jackson. From the moment I first encountered Rynna, I was sucked into her story. I was desperate for more information and could not wait to see how her story was going to play out. In no way was I prepared for the journey I was about to experience. It’s books like this that remind me why I love AL Jackson’s writing so much. It’s not just words written on a page, but is a story that embeds itself into your soul. From lyrical writing to a breathtaking story-line to broken characters, Show Me the Way is a story that will grip onto your heart and will hold on to it with everything it has.

Show Me the Way is powerful, emotional. A story of the truest love. A story of pain and heartache. Of betrayal and devastation. A story of taking chances, letting go of the past and fighting for the love that you deserve.

Show Me the Way is so much more than I ever saw coming.There are so many moments, passages and quotes that I’ve highlighted; I don’t want to forget a single thing. This story touched my heart in ways that I can’t possibly put into words. AL Jackson’s writing has once again slayed my heart, taking me on another unexpected journey. The writing captivating me, making me feel as though I am a part of the story and pulling such strong emotions from me. This series is off to an unforgettable start and can not wait to see what this author has in store for my heart next.

Review: Love Profound (Cowboys and Angels Book 2) by Kelly Elliott

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Amazon: http://amzn.to/2wEwVP2


My Review

“Love will come when you least expect it, Meli. Just you wait.”

“Sometimes our dreams have been staring us right in the face, and we’ve chosen to ignore them for whatever reason. Your heart will never lead you the wrong way.”

“Our eyes were still locked. It wasn’t a stare. It was a connection that I couldn’t deny, and I was positive he felt it as well.”

“This man was everything. My knight in shining armor. The love of my life. The maker of my dreams. The keeper of my heart. Wade Adams was my happily ever after.”

Sweet, Seductive and Utterly Swoon-Worthy. There is just something so incredibly beautiful about Wade and Amelia’s story. Their story is one one that just lives and breathes romance. I just want to jump inside of their story and live it right along with them. My heart has never swooned so much. Wade is the very definition of romance and I could not get enough of Wade and Amelia’s story.

Love Profound is an incredibly beautiful and romantic story. From the moment I met Amelia, I just knew her story was going to take my breath away. She is a romance writer who lives, breathes and of course writes romance, but she’s never experienced true love herself. She’s come close, but has never gotten the “feels”. All that is about to change when Wade Adams enters her life. He is sweet with a secret alpha side. Handsome with a wounded heart. He is one sexy cowboy with a singing voice that would melt the panties off of any woman. He is the total package and he is about to give this romance writer a run for her money…

 

I am so, so in love with Love Profound and its characters. This story captured my heart from the very first page. From steamy hook-ups and naughty romance. To experiencing real love and being swept off your feet. To funny moments and light drama.  This book totally has it all.  Kelly Elliott has taken the swoon factor and  just knocked it out of the park. Love Profound is without a doubt romantic and will give you all the feels. I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end and can not wait to see what this author will have in store for us next.

Review: We Own Tonight by Corinne Michaels

From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.

I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.

However, that’s exactly where I find myself.

What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.

Someone forgot to tell him that.

Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.

He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

iBooks: http://apple.co/2wtgOop


My Review

“It’s reckless to be with a man that will never stay, but I don’t have the energy to care. Right now, he’s here. Right now, he’s real. Right now, he’s kissing me. And for right now, that’s enough.”

“We can’t worry about tomorrow, we can only own tonight. And tonight, I’m going to make sure you never forget how good we are.”

“My life has always been a series of misfortunes, but I’ve never allowed it to define me. I may feel like I don’t have a say in how things go, but I can decide how I want to deal with them. I’m a fighter, and I won’t let anything stand in the way of the prize.”

Waiting for We Own Tonight to hit my kindle was like waiting for Christmas morning. I was on pins and needles waiting to get my greedy hands on this book. And I’m here to tell you that it was sooooo worth the wait!

From the moment I picked up this book, I was swept away into a captivating world that only Corinne Michaels can create. Her words and brilliant writing, weaving their way into my mind, ensuring that I would devour, but not miss a single word.

We Own Tonight is impossible to not fall in love with. I loved the rock star romance story line and couldn’t get enough of Eli. At first he seems like your typical rockstar, but I am here to tell you that there is so much more to this man than what meets the eye. He is relentless, fun, demanding and sweet as hell. Being with Heather rocked him in the best way possible and made him want things he never knew were important. And Eli entered Heather’s life at the best possible time. She had the weight of the world on her shoulders and was a devoted sister, but never ever took time for herself. Being with Eli was the first selfish thing that she had done in 5 years. Try as she might, she tried to fight the pull between herself and Eli, but the pull was too strong. I loved watching Eli pursue Heather and I loved seeing Heather come back to life.

We Own Tonight is brilliantly written and is a heartwarming romance. It is a story about devotion and hope. It is a story of loss and heartache. It is a story about living and never wasting a moment. It is a story of forgiveness. It is a story about the epic kind of love that only author Corinne Michaels can deliever. It is a story that will remain long after you hit The End.
