Release Blitz with Review: The Right Side of Forever by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30

For better or for worse,’til death do us part . . .

The better captured me; she’s who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away–kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse–even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, ’til death do us part.

The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.



My Review

“It’s funny how much one person can impact your status quo.”

“Life is fucked up and doesn’t work like the fairy tales we used to watch as little girls. Life is complicated, a roller coaster of emotions that strips us bare and exposes all of our insecurities.”

“Just like there is a right and left side of perfect, there is a right and left side of forever. The left side of forever represents the relationships that come and go in your life but have never had an impact on the person you’ve become. The right side of forever provides the relationship that stays with you, the relationship that’s imprinted itself so deep into your bone marrow that you live and breathe for that person. You’re my right side of forever, baby.”

After finishing The Left Side of Perfect, I couldn’t help but immediately dive into The Right Side of Forever. And let me tell you, I was hooked, 100% addicted. I could not put this book down. I mean I devoured this book in just 3.5 hours. That’s right 3.5 hours. I was so invested in these characters and their story. I had to know how it was all going to play out. If I thought The Left Side of Perfect had my emotions all over the place, I definitely hadn’t seen anything yet. The Right Side of Perfect had my heart beating furiously out of my chest and left my emotions in chaos. The angst and tension of this story so palpable it was as if I was experiencing this story right along with the characters. So many times I found myself tempted throw my kindle, yelling at the characters, telling them to open their eyes before they blow it…..

The Right Side of Forever picks up right where The Left Side of Perfect left off and all I’m gonna say is get ready. Once again, go into this story blind. I know spoilers are tempting, but I promise this journey will be so worth it. From ups & downs to the good & bad, to an forgettable and at times heartbreaking love story, The Right Side of Forever is absolute perfection and is not to be missed. Colby’s story takes your heart on one unforgettable ride and leaves you with the most satisfying ending….

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review: Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow & Corinne Michaels

Posted on

From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.

Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.

He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.

I’ve always loved to loathe him.

I never planned to need him.


London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.

Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment.

Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.

My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface.

Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close.

My Review

“Men are fixers, Son. Men are strength. Men don’t let anyone see vulnerability. When someone hurts your mother or sister, you’ll fight. If someone you love is in pain, you fight, got it?”

“Ian is the gasoline and I’m the match–when we connect, we could start a forest fire.”

“London is the sun, the stars, the light at the end of the tunnel that I’m so desperate to reach, but know I’ll never touch.”

“Loving Ian was never really a choice, though. He’s always been the guy for me. I just wish my heart knew he was the wrong one.”

What do you do when your two favorite authors co-write a book together?? You drop everything and get your greedy hands on it, of course! Now, let me tell you, when it comes to these two authors, my bar is already set high. I mean, I have loved and adored everything that they have written. So, when I heard that they were co-writing a book together, I screamed, did a little happy dance and anxiously awaited getting my hands on this book. I couldn’t wait to see what these two had in store for us and let me tell you, these two do not disappoint. If anything they’ve gone and set the bar even higher.

Hold You Close is heartbreaking and addictive second chance romance. From the moment you start reading Ian and London’s story, you might as well forget whatever you’ve got going on for the day because this is a book that you will not be able to put down. It’s an enemies to lovers story that will take you on one emotional ride. From ups to downs, to soul crushing loss to doing what you think is right and taking a chance on the one that hurt you, this book has everything an angst lover could want.

Hold You Close is incredibly well written and has an addictive plot. The characters suck you in instantly and will have you begging for more. London is the girl who wants it all: love, career, family. She’s smart, loyal and dependable. And Ian is the guy that has heart-breaker written all over him. He is sexy and completely unattainable. He’s living the life and makes no excuses for the man he is. He isn’t perfect, but underneath his player exterior is a man with a huge heart. A man who will do anything for those he loves. A man that will give up his happiness for the happiness of others. Together London and Ian are an explosion just waiting to happen. Their past and their chemistry lends to some insane tension. The push and pull will leave you begging for more and dying for these two to just give in to what they truly want.

What else can I say other than I loved every word of this story. From beginning to end, I was completely swept up in Ian & London’s story. I was captivated, heartbroken, frustrated and totally in love. This book was angsty and filled with just the emotion I was waiting for. It was Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow to a T. You couldn’t tell where one authors writing began and the others ended. It was completely flawless and just the book my heart was looking for. Simply put, I loved it. I loved it. I loved it. This duo knocked it out of the park with Hold Me Close and I can not wait to see what this duo brings to the table next.

Review: The Prince (A Wicked Trilogy 3.5) by Jennifer Armentrout

Posted on

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new story in her Wicked series…

She’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….

**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

“Being consumed with vengeance was something I never thought I’d experience, but I was knee-deep in it and I wasn’t coming out anytime soon.”

“You’re not a ghost. You never could be one, not when you burn as brilliant as the sun.”

“I saw you smile once and it was like the sun finally rising.”

Man, oh man, was it good to be back in the Wicked World again! It honestly felt like no time had passed at all. I was immediately brought back to the magical world that Jennifer Armentrout has created and couldn’t wait to see what this novella had in store for us.

The Prince is fast paced and takes you on one thrilling ride. This story might be a novella, but it certainly packs a punch. It hooks you from the very beginning and you won’t be able to put it down. You’ll find yourself devouring each and every word…

The Prince picks up shortly where Brave left off. With the Queen out of the picture, everyone is just trying to move on. But, of course, moving on and having a happy ending is easier said than done. Tragedy strikes Brighton and turns her world totally upside down. She should be dead, but somehow she is not. Now, two years later, Brighton is out for blood and has a thirst for vengeance. Her plan isn’t perfect, but she’s determined to make things right. All is going well until the Prince enters the picture. He’s got plans for his own vengeance and tries to deter Brighton. That proves harder to do than the Prince anticipated. He’s haunted by his past and fighting the intense pull to Brighton. Will Brighton and the Prince get the vengeance they both desperately seek? Can the Prince walk away from what he feels for Brighton? There’s only one way to find out….

The Prince took me on one wild and crazy ride. I loved the danger and suspense of the story. I was 100% hooked and couldn’t wait to see how Brighton and the Prince’s story would play out. From action to suspense to excellent sexual tension and a really crazy twist, this book leaves no stone unturned. The Prince left me breathless, on my toes and that ending just left me begging for more. The Prince is a fabulous addition to Wicked Trilogy and I for one can not wait to find out what will happen next.

Review: The Chase by Elle Kennedy

Posted on

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

My Review

“Some kisses are a prelude to sex. Some happen out of boredom. Some make your body tingle, others might leave feeling nothing at all. But what all those kisses have in common? They’re just kisses. They’re not THE KISS. The one that lingers in your mind for hours, even days, after it’s over. The one that has you randomly touching your lips and breaking out in a warm, fluttery shiver as you remember the feel of his mouth on you.”

“Loving yourself is hard enough. Silencing the inner critic borders on impossible.”

“I want a man with clear intentions. A man who makes an effort and is excited to spend time with me. A man who actually wants to want me.”

Man! Oh, man! Have I ever been dying to get my hands on this book. The Chase is the first book in the exciting new Briar U Series and let me tell you, this story does not disappoint. Brair U is a real treat that will captivate you and keep you begging for more.

From familiar faces to brand new ones, there is so much to love about this story. The characters are fantastic and you are going to want to know all there is to know about each and every one. Fitzy and Summer won me over from the very beginning. At first glance, Summer is the girl that you think you know everything about: spoiled, beautiful, clueless, the life of the party. And Fitzy couldn’t be more her opposite: Hockey player, intelligent, artsy, a total introvert. But, let me tell you there is so much more to these two characters than meets the eye. Summer is definitely beautiful and is always down to party. But, she’s also very smart and sensitive. Things don’t come naturally for her despite what others may think. And even though Fitzy is totally out of her league, she can’t help but want him…

Fitzy and Summer were everything I wanted and then some. Their push and pull was off the charts and led to some seriously fantastic angst. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. I gobbled up all of the will they/won’t they moments and held my breath while watching them try to figure things out. They had me twisted and tied up in the most delicious knots.

The Chase reminded me exactly why I love NA books so much. The plot was fun and entertaining. The characters were easy to relate to and had you dying to get to know them. The sexual tension was intense and burned up the pages. The friendships were just what everyone could want and hope for. Add in some drama, a sleazy professor and some seriously funny moments, and you’ve got all the elements for a terrific read. I loved every single thing about this book and could not be more excited to get my hands on the next book in this series. I totally recommend giving The Chase a try.

Review Tour: The Downside of Love by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

My Review

“I walk until my bare feet feel torn and battered and the irony isn’t lost on me. How many years have I figuratively walked alone like this? Feeling like my heart was ripped into pieces. How many times have I shut out the world and hidden alone in my hatred? And yet here I am at twenty-three years old, still on my fucking own.”

“Heat consumes me, desire ripping through me, the need to pull her against my chest taking over my entire body. Everything pauses around us, both our breaths labored, our eyes bouncing back and forth, anger brewing, need consuming me. I want her. I want to claim her. I want to make her mine. Just a few inches, one swipe of my arm around her waist and she’s mine.”

“I feel I’m being given a small glimpse into his soul. It might not be a conversation, or an intro to his past and the ghosts that haunt him, but it’s something, and that something is monumental in my book.”

Wow! Wow! Wow! I don’t even know what to say. I have been waiting on pins and needles, anxious to get this book in my hands. I was dying to see where the story was going to take us next and I gotta tell you, I was not disappointed. This book totally knocked my world off its axis and took me for one wild ride.

There is so much I want to say and just gush over this book about, but I can’t. This is the hardest thing ever, but I don’t want to spoil anything. I do want to ruin the journey. So, here is what I can tell you. Don’t read any spoilers. Go into this book blind. Take a chance and open your mind. The Downside of Love is brilliantly written and consuming. It’s the perfect example of love; how it’s not always what you’re expecting. It can be messy, yet beautiful all at the same time.

When I picked up this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. My emotions were all over the place. I was up. I was down. I was swooning. I was raging. I fell so deeply in love with this story and the characters. I allowed my heart to open up and get totally swept away. This story was absolute perfection in my eyes and I couldn’t have asked for a better ending. I’m so glad I took a chance on this series. I’m so glad I went on this journey. It was everything and in the end it gave me all the feels and a happiness I never knew I needed.

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

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Blog Tour with Review: Disgrace by Brittainy C. Cherry

Posted on


Disgrace, an all-new romantic and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available NOW!



Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

My Review

“Love was a messy emotion that didn’t walk a straight line. It worked in waves and loops of ups and downs. It was a screwy emotion that could somehow still exist amidst the ultimate heartbreak and betrayal.”

“Sometimes, all a person needed was another to listen to their uneven heartbeats.”

“I’ve never seen something that made no sense yet complete sense until I laid my eyes on you together.”

“He kissed me slowly, gently, and filled with love. He didn’t have to say it, but I felt our love. I felt it shoot through my body as his lips pressed against mine. Our souls intermixed and our flames were infinite. It was simple, the way we loved…”

Well, I’ve done it again. I’ve found another book to work its way on to my top reads of 2018 list. Disgrace didn’t just exceed my expectations, it blew them out of the waters and it brought me to my knees. Disgrace is hands down one of the most powerful reads I’ve encountered this year and is one that I know will be staying with me long past THE END….

There are moments in each one of our lives that will test us. Moments that will bring us to our knees and moments that will have us questioning just how much more we can endure. And for Gracelyn, she is about to that test. You see, when she married, she married for keeps. She wanted nothing more than to be the perfect wife and give her husband the life he always wanted. But, life had other plans and when things were bleak, her husband turned to another, destroying Grace in ways she could never imagine. And when Grace returns to her childhood home, she still has hope that her life can be fixed. And then Jackson entered her life. Jackson was everything that Grace should stay away from. If the rumors were to be believed, no good could come from associating with Jackson. But, beneath the rumors and his rough exterior stood a man worth getting to know; a man worth fighting for. Jackson wasn’t supposed to make her laugh. He wasn’t supposed to make her smile. He wasn’t supposed to piece her back together. But when Grace’s heart begins to beat again, all bets are off….

Wow. Wow. Wow. I am at such a loss for words. I was prepared for an emotional read, but boy did I not see this book coming. I was consumed by this story from the very first page. My heart ached for Grace and all that she lost. Her story is not easy. It’s painful and filled with betrayal. And when she returns home to heal, the small town gossips run wild. With a smile on her face and a big heart, Grace tried to do what was best. She tried to do the right thing, to be the perfect person, but everyone has a breaking point. And for Grace, I think her breaking point was the best thing to ever happen to her. It woke her up. It made her take chances. It forced her to discover who Grace really was. It opened her eyes to the ugliness of rumors and made her stand up for herself. And just when Grace was about to give up on love, she was presented with Jackson. Now, Jackson is the kind of man that your parents warn you about. He’s gruff, moody and has a terrible reputation. He’s known as the town monster. But, let me tell you, there is so much more to this man that meets the eye. He is the kindest, sweetest, most swoon-worthy man ever. You just have to break down his walls in order to see it. Together, Jackson and Grace shouldn’t work. They are so opposite, but somehow they just mesh. Their broken souls call out to each other and their connection is one that can not be denied. I love, love, loved watching these two navigate their way to a hea. I loved watching them grow and fall in love and be who they were always destined to be. Their path to hea definitely wasn’t an easy one, but man was the journey ever worth it. I just couldn’t get enough of their story and couldn’t help but hold my breath as I was reading through the pages.

Disgrace isn’t just a story about love or second chances. It’s a story about growth and self discovery. It’s a story of pain and loss. It is a story of betrayal and healing. It is a story that will work itself into your heart and will hold on tight. It is emotional and heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time. It is a story that will bring tears to your eyes and that will have you hoping you wore waterproof mascara that day. It is a story that once you start it, you won’t be able to put it down. A story that will have you rooting for second chances, true love and happily ever afters. A story that will stay with you long after THE END.

I have never connected with a story or characters the way I have with Disgrace. I hope that you will take this journey and that you will fall in love with Jackson and Gracelyn as I have.

“I’ve read about boys like you in books, ya know,” she whispered, her fingers slowly spinning spirals on my chest.

“Oh, yeah? What did those books teach you about boys like me?”

“Well…” She bit her bottom lip, and with a small inhalation, she whispered, “They taught me to stay away.”

“Then why are you so close?”

She tilted her head up, looking me straight in the eyes. “Because in those stories, the heroine never ever listens.”

“And then there’s trouble?” I asked.

“Yes, and then there’s trouble.”

From the way she said those words, I knew trouble was exactly what she was in search of. We were the classic cliché. She was the good girl next door, I the monster from around the block. We were perfect opposites for the perfect storm, and she was asking me to be her next flaw, her greatest mistake.

And, well, who was I not to live up to her request?

“I could destroy you,” I warned.

“Or save me.”

“Is it worth the risk?”

“Isn’t it always worth the risk?”

The more she touched me, the more I wanted to touch her back. I wrapped my hands around her wrists flipping us around so she was now against the wall with her hands above her head. “I have rules.” I leaned in closer, lightly brushing my lips against her neck. God, she smelled good, like peaches and my next sin. “You can’t break these rules, either.” My tongue rolled from my mouth and circled against her neck before I gently sucked her skin.

She shivered at my touch. “What are they?”

“Rule one,” I whispered, my mouth moving across her collarbone. “You never stay the night.”


“Rule number two,” I said, dropping her left arm to the side. Taking my hand to the bottom of her blouse, I slowly raised it up and massaged her skin. “You never develop feelings.”

“That’s easy enough,” she replied, her breaths uneven as I teased at the top button on her jeans. “I don’t believe in feelings anymore.”

I didn’t know why, but that made me sad for her. I, too, didn’t believe in falling for people, but that was my norm. Grace seemed the type to believe in something bigger than love, so the fact that her belief was completely gone was a bit surprising.

Maybe we had more in common than I thought.

“Rule number three…we don’t talk about my life.”

“Like ever?”



“And lastly, rule number four…” My mouth brushed against hers, and I slid my tongue slowly across her bottom lip. “If your favorite pair of panties get ripped, don’t expect me to replace them.”

Review: Moonlight Seduction (de Vincent #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel…

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up… and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman… one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

My Review

“She needed to tell him to stop, because she knew that whatever was happening right now was going to change everything between them, and she knew this time there wouldn’t be any repairing of the damage it would wreak on their friendship….and possibly her life.”

“It was just a kiss–their first kiss–but Nikki knew the moment his mouth touched hers, she knew she’d never been kissed like this.”

Moonlight Seduction is sexy, sinful and down right addictive. This story will suck you in from the very first page and will leave you utterly captivated. You will be 100% hooked on each written word and will find yourself unable to put this book down.

Moonlight Seduction is told from dual points of view and picks up pretty much where the last book left off. Only this time, we get Gabe and Nikki’s story…..The last place Nikki ever thought she’d find herself was back at the de Vincent home. But, when her mom gets sick, she has no choice but to return home and help her mom out. Filling in for her mom should be easy, but seeing Gabe again brings a whole set of challenges to the surface.

And when a new threat presents itself, Gabe’s devotion will be put to the test…..

Man, Oh, Man! This series is a total new favorite for me by this author. It is additive, consuming and completely captivating. The writing is brilliant and the story-line is just so intriguing. I mean, how can you not be fascinated by the de Vincent family?? The money. The stigma. The lies. The deceit. The curse. I love learning more and more with each book. And if that wasn’t enough, you have the de Vincent brothers. They are a lethal combination in more ways than you could imagine. Mysterious. Cold. Rude. And Sexy as ever. They are perfectly imperfect and you won’t find a more devoted family. They will protect one another, no matter the cost…

And that brings us to Gabe. He frustrated me like no other. He was everything you could want in a bad boy. He definitely wasn’t perfect and always seemed to say the wrong thing. But, when he messed up, he more than made up for it. He was passionate, determined and just the guy to turn Nikki’s world upside down. And Nikki…She has such a big heart and the patience of a saint. She tolerated a lot more than I would have, but definitely knew how to play the game. She’s the kind of girl you’d kill to have in your corner.

I just loved Nikki and Gabe together. Their chemistry was explosive. You could tell the connection and feelings these two had were genuine. I loved their pull and the would they/won’t they moments. Nikki fell hard and fast for Gabe when she was just 16 years old and despite how much she wished it was different, those feelings never faded. Their journey to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one. Not only did Gabe make things hard for her, but this is the de Vincent family!!! You know there would be crazy things thrown their way. All I can say is just sit back and enjoy. You are about to be taken on one heck of a ride!!

Moonlight Seduction was a thrilling read from beginning to end. It had me on the edge of my seat and kept me begging for more. From mystery and intrigue to danger and some seriously sexy good times, this book had it all. The story-line is captivating and will just leave you breathless. I am positively hooked on this series and can not be more excited to get my hands on Moonlight Scandals. I have a feeling that one is just going to knock me off my feet.
