MY REVIEW

“I don’t always do what’s best–sometimes it’s downright wrong. But I do what I believe is right for the sake of those involved. That includes you.”

Lies is the epic second book in the Web of Sin Series and will leave you spellbound right until the very end. Just like in the first book, Lies hits the ground running and takes you on another crazy ride. Questions will be answered. Chemistry will be off the charts. Questions will once again be asked and in the end you won’t know what’s up or what’s down.

I loved seeing all the puzzle pieces come together through the web of lies and deception. And just as we are given answers and things are finally starting to make sense, we’re through for another loop that will leave us begging for more. Lies is sexy, smart and utterly delicious. It’s filled with lies and truths, twists and turns.

There is so much I wish I could say, but I just can’t!!! Ugh! You’ll just have to take my word for it and trust me when I say this a ride you won’t want to miss out on. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from begging to end. I was once again hooked from the very first page and just could not put this book down. I was completely and utterly glued to Sterling & Araneae’s story. And man! That ending!! All I’m gonna say is that Aleatha Romig sure knows how to leave us dangling and dying for more. I can not wait to get my hands on Promises and see just how this story is going to unravel. For now, I’ll just be sitting here counting down the minutes until we all of our questions answered….

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Release Blitz with Review: Hotshot Doc by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, HOTSHOT DOC, is available now! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy today!

About HOTSHOT DOC

Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.

I try to avoid him and his temper at all costs. It’s just as easy to admire his sexy, grip-it-while-he’s-ravishing-you hair and chiseled jaw from a healthy distance, preferably from the other end of the hallway…half-hidden behind a plant.

Unfortunately, my plan crumbles when my trusty ol’ boss decides to swap his white coat for a Hawaiian shirt. His retirement leaves me with two terrible options: switch specialties and spend months retraining, or take an open position as Dr. Russell’s surgical assistant.

That means I have to stand near him in the OR for hours on end and anticipate his every need without letting his biting words and bad attitude intimidate me. Oh, and as if that’s not difficult enough, my silly crush on him—the one I’ve tried to stomp on until it disappears—might just be reciprocated.

It’s fine.

I’m fine.

I take my job seriously. There will be no smoldering bedroom eyes across the operating table, no angry almost-kisses in the storage closet. (Well, no more of those.)

What’s the phrase? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?

Maybe I should go for a whole damn bushel.

MY REVIEW

“His eyes are locked with mine and there are a thousand words passing between us: longing, need, desire, want, jealousy, rage, and finally….impatience.”

“I’m shaking as if he has me on the edge of a cliff. One single finger could push me over. I’d tumble down, and right now, there’s no way to know what awaits me at the bottom. Pain, love, heartache,  elation-each as likely as the last and I cant willingly do this to this to myself. I cant give myself over to a man who has the power to upend my life so easily. ” 

“We kiss until my lips are sore, until I have to break away and grasp for breath, until i feel lightheaded and dizzy with need. If i had a bottle of water within reach, I’d dump it on my head. Everywhere he touches, it feels like he’s dragging a flame across my skin. It swears. It ignites. It turns me on to the point of close-tearing, nail-dragging, teeth-biting insanity.”

Hotshot Doc is a fun and entertaining read. It’s flawless writing will have you hanging on every word and begging for more.

From the moment I started reading Hotshot Doc, I was absolutely hooked. I fell in love with the characters and couldn’t wait to see how their story would play out. Bailey is the kind of woman you want in your corner. She’s smart, great at her job, devoted and someone you can count on. She’s given up a lot in life and found herself to be the guardian of her little sister at a young age. She’s doing the best that she can, but that devotion doesn’t leave much time for a social life. However, fate has other plans. When the Doctor Bailey works for suddenly retires, she finds herself forced to work with the hospital’s most feared doctor…Matt is feared by everyone he crosses paths with and has been known to make his surgical assistants cry. When his latest assistant quits, he’s on the fence about bringing on someone new, but can’t resist giving Bailey a shot. And let me tell you, Bailey is a forced to be reckoned with. She isn’t just going to stand there and tolerate Matt’s intense, brooding behavior. She challenges him at every turn and the breath of fresh air he never knew he was looking for. The tension between Matt & Bailey is off the charts. They should hate each other and stay away, but the fire between these two might just prove to be too hard to extinguish……

Hotshot Doc was such a fun read. I loved the setting and the story-line. I got a kick out of all the Grey’s Anatomy references and fell head over heels for the characters. I adored Bailey and respected how hard she worked and how devoted she was to her little sister Josie. Their relationship was so sweet. You could tell that these two looked out for each other’s best interests and they were more like best friends than sisters.

I had a lot of fun getting to know Matt & Bailey. I loved their pull and how much they challenged each other. Their chemistry was amazing and kept me dying for more. Matt & Bailey’s story is the kind that you want to just read in one sitting and that you won’t want to put down until you reach the end. It’s filled with lots of laughs, scorching chemistry, a lot of will they/won’t they moments and some delicious sexy good times. I really enjoyed how well Matt & Bailey just worked together and had a lot of fun seeing their story unravel.

I fell head over heels for Hotshot Doc from the very first page. It was everything I was looking for in a romantic comedy. With light drama and little angst, Hotshot Doc is a straight up love story that will give you all the feels and leave you with a huge smile on your face. I really enjoyed spending my day getting lost in these characters.

Review: All of Me (Confessions of the Heart #2) by A.L. Jackson

A forbidden stand-alone romance in A.L. Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart Series.

“This is without a doubt my top read for 2018.”~A Book Lover’s Emporium Book Blog

My loves!

I am so proud to bring you ALL OF ME!! I am MADLY IN LOVE with this story – Ian and Grace absolutely seeped into my soul and became one of my very favorite couples I’ve ever written. This book…it’s EVERYTHING! I am so excited for you to fall in love with it the way that I did!!

⋆Sexy Attorney

⋆Forbidden Romance

⋆The one woman who will make him question everything

DETAILS: 

TITLE: ALL OF ME

SERIES: A Confessions of the Heart Stand-Alone Novel

RELEASE DATE: December 3rd, 2018

People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.

I call myself tenacious.

One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.

Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.

One touch.

One night.

It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.

Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.

Too bad I already did.

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again…

All of Me – a Confessions of the Heart forbidden, stand-alone romance

MY REVIEW

“I warned you who I was.” Selfish. Greedy. Incapable of love. The devil.”

“I learned at a young age that I was the sun. It was up to me to make the world gravitate around me.”

“I felt it again. An overwhelming surge of heat washed over me from behind. Something dark, almost sinister, an open invitation to step into his expensive brand of sin.”

“When she looked up at me with a river of mascara running down her cheeks, I fucking forgot everything. My mind. My sanity. My reason.”

As much as I want to say I was ready for Ian’s story, I can honestly say that no way was my heart ready for it. Ian and Grace’s story was nothing like I thought it was going to be. Was it forbidden? Yes. But it was so much more. It was a story of two lost souls trying to make the most out of the cards they’ve been dealt. A story of second chances and dreams that you never thought would come true. A story of love that will capture your heart and will definitely get under your skin.

Ian has had a tough life. He’s done and seen things that no one should have to. He’s cocky and arrogant. He doesn’t let many get close and doesn’t do relationships. The only thing he’s looking for is power and a good time. The one thing he never saw coming was Grace. Their attraction was instant. From the moment he saw her, he just knew she would be a game changer. He perused her unlike any other woman. One night of passion will never be enough. But, when Grace wants to hire Ian as an attorney, everything changes. Ian & Grace find themselves in a battle of a lifetime. There’s so much to lose, but neither one can stay away…..

All of Me grabbed me from the very first page and had me hanging on to every single word. In true A.L. Jackson style, the writing is captivating and will just slay you. The story weaving its way deep under your skin and leaving you absolutely breathless. The characters are absolute perfection. Both lost and damaged, yet completely perfect for one another. Her wanting the dream that any woman would want. A good man. Someone to fight for her. Someone to love her. Someone to take a chance on HER. And him…he never believed he was good enough. He sees himself as the devil for the choices that he’s had to make. Feeling as though he doesn’t deserve any kind of love and happiness. His demons so hard to battle, but Grace waking up things in Ian that he was so utterly unprepared for. These two made me want to believe in love. They made me want to believe in second chances. I wanted them to take a chance on what they wanted. I wanted them to find peace. I wanted them to find happiness. And boy oh boy was I rooting for them to find their happily ever after.

All of Me is a beautiful and heartbreaking love story that will just take your breath away. It’s sexy. It’s sinful. It’s forbidden. It’s a story filled with pain and passion, hurt and longing, hope and fear. This story took me on a journey that I never saw coming and yet I loved every single moment of it. A.L. Jackson has once again taken my heart for an incredible ride and I loved getting lost in Ian & Grace’s story.

Review Tour: Tragic by Devney Perry

Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.W

Alone.

So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.

But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.

Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.

READ THE PROLOGUE FOR TRAGIC HERE

My Review

“She needed  strong partner. Someone sure. Someone as sturdy as the wood slabs in my shop. Not because she couldn’t stand on her own, but because a weaker partner would pull her down. She needed someone to lift her higher. Someone like me?”

“I was falling in love with my grouchy, tormented neighbor. I was falling for a man who was sweet and kind. I was falling in love with a man who had a little magic of his own.”

“I always maintained that line in the sand. There were no lines anymore. I would cross them all. Piper Campbell had broken past all my walls and made me fall in love with her. She’d work her way into my broken heart, filling the black holes with light.”

“Somewhere along the line, you stole my heart, I’m going to steal yours in return. Just wait and see.”

Tragic is a beautiful and emotional second chance romance. It is a story that is sure to tug on your heart strings while giving you all the feels.

Told from dual points of view, Tragic follows the story of Piper and Kaine. Fresh from her divorce, Piper wants nothing more than a fresh start and to put the past behind her. She’s not looking for anything serious, but a fling might be just what the doctor ordered to mend her broken heart…..Kaine wants nothing but to bury the ghosts of his past and deal with his grief in his own way. He’s found solitude in the mountains of Montana and is happy with the status quo. All is going according to plan until a new neighbor moves in. When his gruff exterior doesn’t scare Piper away, a fire is ignited in Kaine. Feelings he thought were buried have been put to the forefront. Passion is ignited and lines will be crossed. Will a no strings attached fling be what the doctor ordered or will it turn Kaine & Piper’s world upside down….

Tragic is the kind of story that just grabs you from the very first page. The prologue just tugged at my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I was instantly hooked and couldn’t wait to read more. Piper and Kaine’s story is the kind that I just love to get lost in. It’s consuming and makes you feel so many emotions. It’s the kind of story you can’t help but devour because you don’t want to put it down. And honestly, there’s nothing better than a second chance romance that digs its heels into your soul.

Piper and Kaine had me from their very first encounter. Kaine’s pain and heartache was so palpable. He was so closed off. In fact, he was quite the jerk at times. He just had so many demons he was trying to keep at bay. But, I just knew under all that gruff exterior was an amazing man. I lived for the moments when he would let you in. Those moments when he was unguarded and real. He was a truly sweet and passionate man. And when he fell in love….oh, boy! All bets were off. And Piper….Ugh! Her story was heartbreaking as well. She had such a big heart and had so much love to give. She could have let her divorce destroy her, but instead, she had this amazing outlook. She wasn’t going to give up. She had a calming way about her and was just the balm that Kaine needed in his life…He just didn’t know it yet.

Together Kaine and Piper were an unstoppable force. Both looking for peace and solace and instead found an all consuming love that they never expected. I loved their passion and determination. Life threw so many obstacles at these two. Both of them hurt and betrayed by the ones they loved. Kaine’s demons really struck a chord with me and I can’t even count how many times my heart broke for him. It was no wonder that he had a hard time dealing with his emotions and didn’t know how to handle the feelings that Piper brought out of him. I just ached for the moment when everything would be ok and those demons would finally be laid to rest. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for these two, but I truly enjoyed every moment of it. The good. The bad. The ugly. The parts that hurt. Kaine & Piper didn’t just save themselves, they saved each other.

Tragic is a beautiful and heartbreaking story. It’s a story of two broken and lost souls just trying to find their way in the world again. It’s a story of healing and forgiveness. A story of escape and learning to move on. It’s a story of taking that leap towards love and fighting for what you want. So many times I found myself with tears in my eye and in the next moment I was swooning over Kaine. Yes, that broody, gruff man knocked me off my feet and I just swooned over the love he had for Piper.

In the end, Tragic is one of those stories that I know will stick with me for a while. It’s so incredibly well written and it’s definitely one of those stories that I would recommend having tissues near by for. Kaine & Piper’s story captivated me and left me speechless. I’m still so full of emotions as I’m writing this review and hope that all of my feelings make sense. I just loved every single moment of this story from beginning to end. If I could give this story a million stars, I totally would. Tragic is definitely a top read for me from this author.

Release Blitz with Review: Seduce Me by Kelly Elliott

What happens when you’re forced to seduce the one person you vowed never to love?

You get screwed … in more than one way.

I walked out of Tucker Middleton’s bedroom seven years ago, leaving him hurt and angry. Now I need his help; the only way I can get it, is to make him think I want him back.

The only problem is we have silently vowed to hate one another for the rest of our lives. In order to get Tucker to help me—I have to seduce him.

Easy right?

Hell yes! I’m the CEO of CMI Consulting. If I set my mind to something, I make it happen.

Charleston Monroe is playing me for a fool. If she believes for one second I’m going to let her walk into my life to help her save the very job that ripped her away from me, she’s got another thing coming.

She thinks she can seduce me, and I let her believe she can. After all, I’m getting what I’ve always wanted.

Her.

My Review

“I had fallen for Tucker the first time he grabbed my hand and walked me into the movie theater with our group of friends. To him it was a friendly gesture…to me it made my entire body come to life. I knew then he was going to be my kryptonite.”

“Anything for you, Charlie. You’re my fucking weakness. Always have been, always will be.”

Seduce Me is the first book in an all new and exciting series from author Kelly Elliott. Seduce Me is fun, flirty with a great pull and a romance that I just can’t get enough of. This story is the kind that I just live for and can’t get enough of.

From the moment I picked up Seduce Me, I was hooked. I was totally, completely, 100% addictive to these characters. They were fun. They were entertaining. They made stupid mistakes, but at the same time were determined and knew what they wanted out of life. I loved getting to know Charlie and Tucker. You could tell from the beginning that these two had unfinished business and I for one couldn’t wait to see how their story would progress. These two might have been separated for 7 years, but the sparks and flame were still there. The passion and chemistry between them; undeniable. And I just loved their banter. I never knew what they were going to say next and I loved that they kept me on my toes.

The road to HEA for Charlie and Tucker wasn’t an easy one. Mistakes and hurt from the past definitely was a hard thing to overcome, but once the truth comes to light, there’s no stopping these two. Did Charlie and Tucker frustrate me? Yes, absolutely. I didn’t know if I wanted to strangle them or hug them. But, I gotta tell you, all that frustration….it just added to those incredible will they/won’t they moments. At the end of the day, you could tell these two cared for one another a lot more than they let on, but they let fear rule their lives. For me, it was a lot of fun watching them try to figure things out and fight for what they really wanted.

Seduce Me is the first book in the Austin Singles Series and boy does it kick off this series with a terrific start. I live and breathe for story-lines like Charlie and Tuckers. Their story was just filled with delicious angsty moments, a great push and pull, and a love that’s worth fighting for. Seduce Me gave me all the feels and took my emotions on one crazy ride.

I loved every single moment of Seduce Me from beginning to end. It was fun. It was sexy and full of steam. I loved the characters. I loved their drama. I loved their fight. And I just can not wait for more. This series is off to one amazing start and I’m excited to see who’s story this author will have me falling in love with next.

Review Blitz: Secrets (Web of Sin #1) by Aleatha Romig

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. ”

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

My Review

“In the midst of blistering heat, his menacing demeanor appeared calculating yet calm if not downright cold as he scrutinized me from head to toe. There was confidence in his disposition. It was as if instead of the temperature radiating from the sun, it was the heat of his gaze penetrating beyond my surface to me–the real me.”

“He expected more–my compliance to his every order.”

“My life is covered by a veil of secrets, and you have the ability to rip it off, to shed light on what I’ve never known.”

Secrets is a deliciously intriguing and spellbinding contemporary romance. This is the kind of story that grabs you from page one and will keep you on your toes right until the very end. We’ve been spoiled, seeing the lighter side of Aleatha. Well, I’m here to tell you that the darker side is back and I have been Aleatha’d and I can not wait for more…..

I love a story that grabs you instantly and keeps you guessing. The plot to this story is spellbinding and will leave you utterly captivated. You’ll have a million and one questions and hardly any answers. The characters just as intriguing as you would expect them to be, barley revealing anything and yet leave you aching for more. Kennedy has been on the run for the past ten years. Living an identity that no one should know. Her true name, Araneae, never to be uttered. She is sassy, can hold her own and is a force to be reckoned with. She has a lot of fight, but in the end can roll with the punches when need be. And Sterling….right off bat I knew he was going to be the anti-hero that I wanted him to be. Calling him a jerk doesn’t even do it justice. He’s the kind of guy you want to strangle, but in the same breath, you find yourself rooting for him. He’s complicated. He’s used to always getting his way and doesn’t let anyone argue with him. He’s dominate, alpha and always in control. When he has his mind set on something, all bets are off. Together, these two are a raging inferno. They push each others buttons and have some seriously explosive chemistry. Their story is sexy, seductive and just riddled with suspense. I couldn’t wait to see just how their story was going to play out…..

Secrets is the kind of story that gives you a little, but likes to really keep you in the dark. I don’t know 100% what’s going on. I have some theories, of course. But, I can’t wait to see how this web of secrets and lies will unfold. Like I said, I have a million and one questions and am dying for answers. I need to know what’s going on. I need to know what will happen next. I need to know who can really be trusted and I need to know what lies ahead for Araneae & Sterling.

I loved every single second of Araneae & Sterling’s story. It’s fast paced, suspenseful and utterly captivating. Their story will seduce you and keep you asking questions. It will become your next addiction and will keep you hanging right until the very end. And boy does that ending leave you burning for more. Like I said in the beginning, I have totally and 100% been Aleatha’d and can not wait to see what lies ahead for us in book 2 in the Web of Sin Series….

Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.

My Review

“He just looked at me in a way that made me feel like I was some kind of jigsaw puzzle he couldn’t piece together. Our gazes collided and held. My breath caught. Something….something hot and unwanted flared to life between us.”

“Life without you is like a broken pencil. Pointless.”

“If I had to do it all over, I would. Without a fucking doubt, I would do it again, because the only other option would be that you wouldn’t be standing in front of me–pissed off, but breathing. Alive and so damn beautiful that it kills me a little each time I look at you.”

This book. As a fan of the Lux Series, I feel like I’ve been waiting my whole life for this book. Words can not even express how excited I was to hear that we would be returning to the Lux world. I was over the moon, excited and on pins and needles. Anxious to get my hands on this book and see what new adventure lies ahead. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed at all. From the moment I started reading The Darkest Star, it felt like I was home. Like I was with an old friend, but a whole new one at the same time. I was addicted and utterly captivated. Wild horses could not stop me from putting this book down.

The Darkest Star picks up a while after Opposition left off with a new story and threat to the world as we know it. It follows the story of Evie and Luc. Evie is seventeen and her biggest worry is getting busted underage at a club known for humans and Luxen to mix freely. Evie is awkward and out of place, but will do anything to support a friend, even if that means showing up at club despite what her instincts are telling her. The one thing she never planned on was meeting Luc. She feels an instant and unexplained pull to him. She tries to fight it and stay away, but before she knows it, she finds herself in a world she never expected to be a part of. A place where nothing makes sense and everything she thought she knew may not be….

The Darkest Star is a thrilling and entertaining read. To say I devoured it would be a total understatement. This book is totally one of those cancel all your plans, turn off your phone and lock yourself in your room type reads. You won’t want to put this book down. Trust me, I literally had to force myself to take a break and eat some breakfast; it was that good.

The Darkest Star gave me everything I was looking for and then some. From new friends to old. To a captivating plot with threats and danger around every corner. To delicious sexual tension and oh so many swoon worthy moments. The Darkest Star is fast paced and action packed. There certainly was never a dull moment. This is the kind of book that reminded me exactly why I fell in love with this genre to begin with.

The Darkest Star is hands down one of the best YA books I’ve read this year. It’s reignited my love for this genre and the Lux Series. I still have some burning questions and am super excited to see where this story is going to go next!
