Love at first sight.

That’s what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends.

When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart.

I want to hold out hope that he’ll change his mind.

Instead, he moves on.

The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn’t slay me.

So, I say yes…to the man I love. But he isn’t the man I’ve been in love with nearly my entire life.

MY REVIEW

“Sometimes you have to cut the strings to make room for what truly belongs to your heart.”

“Every time you looked into my eyes, I felt it deep within my soul.”

Love At First Sight is the first book in an exciting new series from author Kelly Elliott that delivers all the feels and will leave you breathless.

Love At First Sight follows the story of Rip and Chloe. From the moment I picked up this book, I was giddy with excitement. I was instantly hooked and could not wait to see what Chloe’s story would bring to the table. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed at all. As someone who is a total sucker for friends to lovers romances, this one checked off all of my marks and completely exceeded my exceptions.

Chloe and Rip had a friendship that was built to stand the test of time. Over the years, there were so many times where they got close to becoming more, but let fear dictate their actions. Everyone and I mean everyone, knew these two belonged together and I couldn’t wait for these two to open their eyes and take the leap….

Love At First Sight has the ultimate push and pull. It has those will they/won’t they moments that just leave you breathless. Yes, Rip and Chloe had their frustrating moments…moments where you just wanted to yell at them and make them open their eyes. But, their journey to happily ever after was so worth it. Sure there were a couple bumps in the road along the way, but every romance has its obstacles. And I just loved watching these two try to figure things out…to finally fight for what’s important and never give up.

The love between Chloe and Rip was epic and unforgettable. Their story is exactly what I want from a romance novel. It’s filled with tension and love. It’s light on the drama, yet more than delivers on the angst. The story tugs at your heart and leaves you begging for more. And that just makes the steamy and swoon-worthy moments all that more worth it.

Love At First Sight is a fantastic start to the Southern Bride Series and I for one, can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Kelly Elliott, you have blown me away, and I can’t wait for more!

Release Blitz with Review: This Is Wild (This is #2) by Natasha Madison

Posted on

Zoe
When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I was never going to settle down with one.

Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City.

I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way.

First, he was my client and then he became my friend.

Viktor
My parents told me I skated before I walked.
When I was eighteen I was drafted into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams.
What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.

Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab.

There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better.
There wasn’t another option.

One of the rules of recovery was ‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every single way.

Until it was too late

One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.

When push comes to shove, I’m only certain that, This is Wild.

AVAILABLE NOW
Amazon US |  Amazon CA | Amazon UK | 
Amazon AU  | Apple Books | Nook 

MY REVIEW

“The house of cards is going to fall soon, and I don’t want you to get crushed by it.”

“One time. One kiss. And I know it’s a kiss that I’ll be looking for, for my whole life.”

This Is Wild is absolute perfection. I mean, this book slayed me in all the right ways. I’m talking cue the tears and hold my heartstrings because I just couldn’t get enough of this angsty story.

From the moment I started reading This Is Wild, I knew this book was going to be special. Viktor and Zoe captivated me instantly. Their story is real, raw and oh so satisfying. Zoe is the total package. She’s beautiful, smart and sassy. She has a huge and generous heart and doesn’t date hockey players. Then we have Viktor. Viktor was on top of the world in LA. Living the life and partying. Five years later, all that partying will catch up to him and before he knows it, he’ll find himself at rock bottom. His world has been turned upside down and changes will need to be made. He’s been offered a second chance. He’s just got to pull himself out of the dark and take it…..

This Is Wild is an emotional second chance romance. This emotional read will put your emotions through the paces and deliver all the feels. This story is intense at times and deals with some very real, very raw subject matter. Viktor’s fight is not for the faint of heart, and I couldn’t help but be in awe of his strength and determination. He wasn’t perfect, but was determined to become a better man. I loved the way he felt about Zoe. He liked her, but knew that his recovery needed to come first. He didn’t want to make promises that he couldn’t keep. The chemistry and pull between Viktor and Zoe was just everything. I loved watching their friendship develop and see their journey unfold.

This Is Wild is the kind of story that will leave you breathless and begging for more. Viktor and Zoe’s story is consuming and will have you devouring all of the words. This Is Wild was a wonderful book to spend my day getting swept up in. I loved every second of Viktor and Zoe’s story and I know that it’s one that will be staying with me…

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers
flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals.
You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or
possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her
characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review: The King (A Wicked Trilogy #3.6) by Jennifer L. Arementrout

Posted on

From #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes the next installment in her Wicked series.

As Caden and Brighton’s attraction grows despite the odds stacked against a happily ever after, they must work together to stop an Ancient fae from releasing the Queen, who wants nothing more than to see Caden become the evil Prince once feared by fae and mortals alike.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

MY REVIEW

“He kissed–God, he kissed like a man starving. He kissed as if he were going to devour me, and I wanted that. I needed it. It was all I could think about. Or maybe I wasn’t thinking at all. Instead, I was feeling. I was just letting myself feel.”

“Now, you’re seen, and you’re heard. You stand up for yourself. You’re living. They did take a lot from you, Brighton. Your mother. Your contentment. But it also seems like you gained a lot. Not from them, but from yourself.”

“You are my strength. My sun. You are my heart.”

Man, oh man, was it great to be back in this world again. The King picks up right where The Prince left off and there is never a dull moment. Yes, this book hits the ground running and just totally sucks you back in to The Wicked World. Now, don’t be fooled by the fact that this book is a novella because let me tell you, this little novella packs a punch. It will easily consume you and will leave you hanging on each and every word.

Since this book is a novella, I’m going to keep my review short and sweet and just say I LOVED this book!! I loved it. Within seconds of starting this story, everything from The Wicked Series came rushing back to me. I remembered why I originally fell in love with this series and all of the characters. The King is easily a novella that you can finish in just a few short hours.

The King is sexy and smartly written. The characters pull you into their story immediately. There is humor and angst. There is drama and moments that will leave you holding your breathe. There are moments where you’ll find yourself screaming at your kindle and ferociously flipping the pages to see how the story will play out. The King had it all and then some.

The King was a thrilling ride from beginning to end. From will they/won’t they moments, to lots of delicious tension & steam to danger around every turn…. I just couldn’t get enough. And with an ending I never saw coming, all I can say is when do we get our hands on the next book???!!

Review: The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

HAVE YOU HEARD THE RUMOR AROUND CAMPUS ABOUT THE LOCKER ROOM?

If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. Basically one rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

TRANSLATION: BASEBALL PLAYERS ARE STUPIDLY SUPERSTITIOUS AND BELIEVE THE LOCKER ROOM HAS MAGICAL POWERS.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

THE ONLY QUESTION IS, WILL SHE ACCEPT?

MY REVIEW

“A man never reveals his true feelings after the fourth encounter. Don’t you know anything about love arcs.”

“I’m invested in Emory Ealson. From the moment her map slapped me in the face, I knew this girl was something special, and I plan on showing her that.”

“Friends forever. That’s what we promised each other. But sometimes, promises were made to be broken.”

“It was like I’d been holding my breath for eight years, and I finally let it out.”

The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn is by far and away one of my favorite romantic comedies/sports romances of 2019. This book completely exceeded my expectations and took my heart on the most incredible journey.

From the moment I picked up The Locker Room, I was instantly sucked in. I was immediately drawn to Emory and couldn’t wait to see her story unfold. When we first meet up with Emory, she’s in desperate need of a fresh start. Her focus is on her friends and her studies and she isn’t about to let anyone get close to her heart. All that immediately flies out the window when she crashes into Knox. Knox is a force to be reckoned with. He’s like sunshine on a cloudy day. Everyone and everything just gravitates towards him and when his sights get set on Emory, all bets are off. There is just something about her and Knox can’t help but want to know more. Emory’s not going to make it easy, but Knox is in for the long haul and is ready to pull out all the stops. Will Emory fall for Knox’s charms and break down her walls??? There’s only one way to find out…..

Man, oh, Man! I just loved The Locker Room. This book was not at all what I expected. I totally didn’t see Knox and Emory’s story coming and I just loved every single second of it. The writing was flawless and the plot was a ton of fun. The characters were real, flawed and easy to relate to. Knox was ridiculously charming and you just couldn’t help but be in a good mood when he was around. And while Emory might seem reserved, she had a great sass to her and gave it to Knox just as good as he dished it out. I loved watching these two together and seeing their friendship develop. Their banter was electric and consuming. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. One minute they had me laughing my butt off and then the very next, the sexual tension was just oozing off of the pages. They had the most incredible slow burn that made all of those will they/won’t they moments so worth it. Seriously, I just loved getting lost in these two.

Now, the road to happily ever after for these two is not an easy one. There are lots of good times, but heartbreaking ones too. I’m not kidding when I tell you that Knox and Emory put my heart through the wringer. I felt each emotion right along with these characters. Some of their actions broke my heart and made me rage. I knew why certain things had to happen, but that didn’t make it any easier. But, for a girl who loves herself some angst, I obviously couldn’t get enough. From the heartache to the misunderstandings to the weak moments and ones that make you swoon. Emory and Knox were so perfectly matched and I couldn’t help but root for these two to figure things out and fight for their happily ever after.

The Locker Room is a second chance, romantic comedy, sports romance all wrapped up in a terrific read. I loved every single minute of this story from beginning to end. I loved all the main and secondary characters. I loved getting wrapped up in Emory & Knox’s romance. I lived for the moments that had me laughing so hard my sides hurt and then those moments that just tugged at my heart. Simply put, I LOVED this book!!

Release Blitz with Review: Coldhearted Boss by R.S. Grey

Posted on

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, COLDHEARTED BOSS, is available now – be sure to grab your copy today!

About COLDHEARTED BOSS

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

MY REVIEW

“I realize I was wrong before. This one’s not the prince in the fairytale. He’s the dragon.”

“We make a striking pair: dark features perfectly matched, brown eyes of such varying shades they shouldn’t even be classified as the same color. We’re two beautiful people about to make some very bad decisions.”

“This isn’t a man you use for a night. This is a man you turn your life upside down to be with, one you crawl on hands and knees to please, one who touches you once and brands your soul forever.”

Holy angsty goodness!! Coldhearted Boss is the latest romantic comedy from author R.S. Grey and it is sure to runaway with your heart and leave you with a huge smile on your face.

When we first meet up with Ethan and Taylor, Taylor is down on her luck. Life just seems to be delivering hit after hit. Taylor has almost reached the point of no return and when a sexy man in a suit, pays her some attention, she can’t help but want to forget her problems even if it’s just for one night. It all sounds good in theory, but Taylor knows that her problems won’t magically disappear….Flash forward a month in time when a job opportunity comes her way. Taylor has no clue what she’s doing, but she’s desperate for some good cash. The only problem, is that the guy she’s working for turns out to be Ethan, the man from the bar. Like I said, Taylor is desperate and will do anything to keep her job, even if that means working for a man who can’t stand her and that is beyond arrogant. Each day together is a battle of the wills to see who will break. The tension and sparks between this two is a lot more than just hate and only time will tell if these to enemies will become more than the status quo…..

Coldhearted Boss was just the book I was looking for to pull me out of my book funk. Ethan and Taylor had me hooked from their very first encounter. Their interactions kept me on my toes and I loved every single awkward moment. These two had push and pull like no other and took their hate to a whole other level. I for one could not wait to see what would happen next. The tension between Ethan and Taylor was so explosive, their chemistry just begged for them to submit to it and I had the best time getting to see their story play out.

Coldhearted Boss was a fantastic read from beginning to end. I loved Taylor and her dedication to her family. There is nothing she wouldn’t do for them, even if it meant working with someone she couldn’t stand. I’ll be the first to admit that Taylor didn’t always make the smartest decisions, but at the end of the day, her heart was in the right place and she really just needed someone who was willing to go the distance for her. And then we have Ethan…Ethan who works too hard, is arrogant and isn’t afraid to put Taylor in her place. He thinks he’s got her number, but couldn’t be further from the truth if he tried. What I loved about Ethan though was that under his cold facade, was a sweet, swoon worthy hero who was just begging to come out. Taylor challenged Ethan and wasn’t afraid to give back to him just as much as he dished out. Together these two were the perfect match, they just had to be willing to open their eyes and move past all of the hate.

Taylor and Ethan’s story was light-hearted, sweet enemies to lovers romance. I know that description doesn’t sound like that’s how an enemies to lovers story should be, but you’ll just have to trust me on this. R.S. Grey delivered her signature humor and angsty romance that I just couldn’t get enough of. Ethan and Taylor got under my skin in the best way possible and I never wanted their story to end. Coldhearted Boss captured my heart and kept me glued to the pages. I loved every single moment of this story. From the angst to the drama, to the romance and sexy good times, to the misunderstandings that pulled at my heart…..Ugh….Such a terrific story. I just loved it.

Review: Well Suited (Red Lipstick Coalition #4) by Staci Hart

Posted on

Well Suited, the final standalone in Staci Hart’s Red Lipstick Coalition, is LIVE! It is the bittersweet end of an amazing series and the ending could not have been better!

Well Suited Red Lipstick Coalition #4 Staci Hart Genre : Romantic Comedy Publication Date : May 2, 2019

Chemistry is my love language.

I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

When: approximately five weeks ago. Who: one night stand. How: prophylactic malfunction.

The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.

I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

Grab your copy of Well Suited today on Amazon!

My Review

“She smelled like rain and fresh-cut flowers, like desire and unspoken promises. She smelled like my last meal, like a color I’d never seen before. Like a sense I hadn’t known I had was awakened simply by the proximity of my lips to her skin.”
“You make me feel like I’ve been starving my whole life, and I thought my deprivation was just the way life was. That living in a constant cycle of exhaustion and retreat was just how relationships worked. That’s the best I can  explain it–I was starving, and you are a feast. You even engage my salivary glands.”
“A truth that had been right there, right in front of me all along. His name on my lips, written on my heart, etched on my soul. I’d never believed in fate, never subscribed to soul mates. But if ever there was a man who was my exact match, my most perfect equal, it was Theo. And if that wasn’t love, I didn’t know what was. That word was defined by his existence.”
Beautiful, angsty and just freakin perfect is how I would describe Well Suited. Well Suited is the kind of book that begs to be devoured and will give you all the feels.
 
Well Suited is the fourth book in the Red Lipsitck Coalition and follows the story of Theo and Katherine. Right off the bat, I was captivated by these two. They couldn’t be more different if they tried, but their chemistry was way off the charts. I just knew they’d be explosive together and I was not disappointed. Theo and Katherine shared one perfect night together and if Katherine had it her way, that would be all there was, but fate had other plans for these two. In a matter of moments, two blue lines will turn Katherine and Theo’s world upside down. It’s terrifying. It’s scary. It could be hands down the best thing to ever happen to these two…
 
Well Suited is an emotional and heartwarming romance that just tugs at your heartstings. Katherine likes her life to be filled with order and rules. She likes her space and rarely lets anyone get close to her. She is strong and fiercely independent. Theo is her complete opposite. When it comes to love, Theo wants it all. His perfect match, his soul mate, the one that fate intended. But, Katherine doesn’t believe in any of that. Love is a word she doesn’t understand, but if Theo has it his way, she’ll soon discover that being in love is the best possible thing. It won’t be easy conceiving Katherine that there is more to their relationship than the life they’ve created. But, Theo has the patience of a saint and won’t back down from what he wants….
 
Well Suited was everything that I was looking for and then some. I couldn’t put this book down and even wild horses couldn’t stop me from devouring Theo and Katherine’s story. Their story filled with so much emotion, you could just feel it oozing off the pages. By the time I got to chapter 28, I was a mess. My eyes couldn’t stop tearing up and didn’t stop until I reached the very end. Theo & Katherine were just so perfect for one another and I loved every single second of their story. Staci Hart has certainly outdone herself with Well Suited. I laughed. I swooned. I raged. I teared up. I am so full of emotion and am just loving every single second of it. It was such a joy to get lost in these characters. To see them grow and change as the story went on. To see them fall in love and fight for what they wanted. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for Theo and Katherine, but the journey was so worth it.

Review: Just My Type by Tara Sivec

Posted on

A new standalone, romantic comedy from Tara Sivec!

Live in the best small town in the world? Check.
Have the greatest job ever working on my family’s pumpkin farm? Check.
Marry the town pharmacist and have a nice, quiet life with our son? Check-check.

“Oh, I’m sorry. Did you say you were happy? LOLOLOLOL!” ~ Life

Ember Hastings never thought she’d be dragged away from White Timber and everything she loved, thrust in the middle of a big city she hated, or have her husband of nine years say, “I can’t do this anymore,” all within the span of three months, yet here she is.

She misses her family, she misses the farm, and she misses having a backbone and caring whether or not the stain on her shirt is chocolate or shit. She works from home doing transcription. Does she really need to shower or leave the house?

Baker Matthews has been bringing everyone down lately with his grouchy attitude. His job is stressful, and sometimes depressing, but he wouldn’t change anything about it. When a glitch with the transcription company he’s using mistakenly sends him notes he wasn’t supposed to see, Baker finds himself laughing out loud for the first time in months.

He’s never met a woman who says whatever she’s thinking and doesn’t fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living. Until Ember Hastings comes barreling into his life, calling him Shit Mouth and asking if he has any balls.

But she wants to keep this professional. She made him pinky swear, and you don’t mess around with pinky swears. Baker will have to get creative if he wants to prove to Ember that he’s just her type.

MY REVIEW

“As soon as our eyes locked back at Starbucks, I knew it was him. I don’t know how. I just felt it. Which sounds stupid as shit when I say it in my head. But God, the way he looked at me. Like he recognized me instantly, appreciated what he saw, and would chew off the arm of any man who tried to talk to me. It was possessive and hot. Something that should have had me running in the opposite direction, considering it was coming from some guy whose last name I didn’t even know, who I met on-line. I didn’t run away. I walked right toward him like he was a magnet pulling me in.”

“Seeing you in person for the first time, being in the same room with you, listening to you laugh, standing close to you, and watching your face when you put me in my place took my goddamn breath away.”

“Baker’s foreplay is…him. Everything about him. He’s a goddamn weapon of mass sexual destruction.”

Tara Sivec has done it again! Just My Type is the kind of romantic comedy that everyone needs in their life. Baker & Ember are a total force to be reckoned with and their story is one that you are not going to want to miss out on!!!

Just My Type hooked me from the moment I dove into this book. From that very first encounter with Ember, I just knew this book was going to contain nothing but awesomness. You see, Ember’s life was turned upside down when her husband’s job forced them to move to Chicago. But, Ember didn’t let that get her down. She just rolled with the punches and tried her hardest to be the best wife and mother that she could be. Who knew that three short months later, her loser husband would be calling it quits after 9 years together??!! Turns out this change was the best thing that could have ever happened to her. Sure she missed her family and missed the home she grew up in. But, Ember was left with no choice but to just roll with the punches. And boy did she ever. While her life may not be what she was expecting, Ember was ok with that and just wanted to be the woman she was always destined to be. And Baker was the man she never saw coming and certainly wasn’t looking for. Baker & Ember were a match made in heaven and I just love, love, loved getting lost in their story!

When it comes to romantic comedies, Just My Type definitely lands at the top of my list. Not only was this book laugh out loud hilarious (my face hurt from laughing so much), but it also had some really wonderful, down to earth characters that just can’t help wanting to know more about. The banter and chemistry was off the charts. And speaking of banter, the banter between Ember & Baker was my favorite part of the whole story. I just loved how real Ember was with Baker. She didn’t sensor herself around him and just never held back. And Baker loved that about her. She didn’t treat him differently because of his past and what he was doing with his life. She just made him feel like a regular guy. And I just couldn’t get enough. I mean if the banter and interactions weren’t enough for you, the sparks between Ember & Baker were literally jumping off the pages. They just meshed so well together and made it look so easy and so effortless.

Just My Type wasn’t all sunshine and lollipops. There definitely were a few bumps along the way for Ember & Baker. Their story had a lot of heart and realness to it. And I just honestly loved watching them try to navigate their way though all the challenges that life brought to them. I just loved this couple so much that I could just read their story over and over again and never get bored. Ember & Baker are one of a kind and completely unforgettable.

Just My Type is the kind of story that just can’t help but totally immerse yourself in. The characters are one of a kind and totally unique. The story-line is a riot and will have you laughing out loud the entire time. Not only is this story filled with humor; but it’s smartly written, full of heart, has amazing friendships, and wonderful chemistry. It’s sexy and fun with just the right touch of drama. At the end of the day, Just My Type is the kind of story that you want to devour yet savor all at the same time.

n case you couldn’t tell, I absolutely adored this book. Just My Type was like sunshine on a cloudy day. It gave me all the feels, made my sides & face hurt from laughter and kept me dying for more. It was all of that and then some. I loved getting lost in these characters and never wanted their story to end. Tara Sivec has once again knocked me off of my feet and I for one can not wait to see what she has in store for us readers next!
