Christmas Wish by Amanda Siegrist

Completely captivating! From the very first moment I read the first paragraph, I was a one hundred percent all-in happy reader and gah-glued to every page of this book; tearfully and totally wrapped up in this cozy-romantic winter wonderland and the terrific characters. A brave, selfless firefighter saving a golden retriever puppy for a little girl who’s house is burning down right before Christmas ... oh sweet lord, what a man! I’m in love with this heart gripping story ... In love!! Christmas Wish by Amanda Siegrist is absolutely dreamy!

amandasiegrist_christmaswish.PNG

Bentley Wilson is the nicest guy I’ve ever read! Brave, kind and handsome ... he’s so thoughtful and goes out of his way to be helpful and nice to everyone. Even when the woman he’s crushed on for over two years is getting married to someone else on Christmas, Bentley still has a smile and a goodness shine through when he sees her ... until he sees Emma Brookes one night. All the things he thought he knew or felt in the past, fades away as he looks into her troubled green eyes. Bentley admires her feisty attitude and strives to win her over ... even if they are like oil and vinegar most days ... Bentley knows the woman of his dreams when he sees her, and that’s gonna be Emma forever, if he gets his Christmas wish.

Emma Brookes is at the lowest of the lows this holiday season. Worse than broke, worse than homeless, she’s all alone. No family, no job, and no friends, all because everything fell apart when her father suddenly died ... leaving her not just penniless and alone, but now the keeper of his secrets. Looking up an old friend of his puts Emma on a path she may regret, but it also could put her on the road to happiness. Everything Emma has ever wanted is right in front of her, grinning and looking so amazingly handsome. So why does Bentley Wilson bring out her claws like a tussled, hissing cat looking for a fight? Maybe he’s too perfect, too nice and it’s all phony ... or maybe he’s not too good to be true and Santa really does deliver Christmas wishes to girls desperately looking for love.

Christmas Wish by Amanda Siegrist is thee perfect holiday read! I honestly think it’s the best Christmas romance novel I’ve ever read!! Truly enchanting, wonderfully heartwarming and beautifully writen all the way through. It’s absolutely a must read for the holidays ... especially if you love to read opposites-attract-angsty romance with a heartmelting ending!! It’s a keeper!

 

Shouldn’t Want You (Cataclysm 2) by Jerica MacMillan

All the swoons! Oh what a brilliant story! The girl-next-door nanny and the single-dad rock star! Wow! It’s the best! I’m obsessed with this new book, Shouldn’t Want You, by Jerica MacMillan!

jericamacmillan_shouldntwantyou.PNG

Ava and Danny are magnetic and magnificent together! All their differences and all their similarities just match up like the perfect puzzle pieces to make each other whole. I love how the story flows, changes, grows, and twists to slowly, deeply and passionately develop a swoony love connection for Ava and Danny. The storytelling and writing is engaging and enchanting, with all the heart-throbbing bells and swoony whistles from beginning to end!! An absolute delight to read!! Ava and Danny and Eli just captured my heart!

Ava’s life is not following her ultimate plan ... so many hopes and dreams just evaporated when one seemingly great decision changed her life outlook forever. Once a college coed on full scholarship with family adoration, she finds herself an outcast from everyone, no more job nor school, and unable to finish her degree. An ad on a help wanted site seems like her only opportunity to earn some money and get a roof over her head. Nailing the live-in nanny gig may be a dream come true in these desperate times, but meeting the gorgeous walking, talking, single dad, rock star dream man puts up all the be-wary-red-flares in Ava’s heart. She’s here for the adorable two year old, not the fantasy man she now has to live with.

Danny has had a whirlwind life and that doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. The new cute nanny calms his weary rock star soul, but she seems as walled up as he is. Lessons learned the hard way as they say, and he has now learned the hardest of all, fatherhood. Thank the stars for his parents raising his two year old up till now, and he has a long tour ahead. No more life of parties and groupies and no more sex with strangers. Fool me once, etc ... but Ava seems different, looks different and acts different. She didn’t even know who he was or that he is a lead singer and guitarist for his band, Cataclysm. That’s a breathe of fresh air. A woman here to do her nanny job, not a flirty-get-in-my-pants job. Only, why does he want to spend time with her, get to know her, make her laugh like she does with his son Eli? What is it about her that draws him in like a moth to a flame? All his beware-flags are flying and he will not make that mistake again, no matter how much he loves the feelings of the sensational connection they have, like she’s the one. But that’s just a fantasy in his love songs, right?





Misadventures With A Rookie (Misadventures #11) by Toni Aleo

Hello Hockey Season! How utterly fantastic is this series! All the amazing authors! All the sexy stories! I can’t get enough ... and now I’m all about the hot hockey romance Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo. What a terrific contemporary story about a girl wanting what she shouldn’t ... but he has other plans, very sexy plans.

tonialeo_misadventuresofarookie.PNG

This guy is a conceited, cute, hunky defense man with a dazzling smile and a cocky attitude to match. In other words, Gus “The Bus” Persson is trouble. A sinfully sexy bundle of trouble and Bo St. James knows all too well what all that egotistical hockey hotness can do to a woman’s heart. So how can a girl resist the irresistible ... she can’t!

All the steamy struggles to reject such a gorgeous, adorably obnoxious man, and all the verbal sparring just builds all the sexual tension and turns my heart to mush. It’s all smooth words and smoldering looks, Gus pours on the charm, but with kissing blowing sincerity ... and it seems that he isn’t about to give up on Bo so easily.

I’ve always loved Toni Aleo’s hockey romances. The writing is so detailed, so emotional, so freaking hot sexy, it puts me right in the middle of all the exciting action, on and off the ice!! These two characters have so many hidden depths with all the heart baggage that keeps all that ice-melting sparks flying right into happily ever after.


The Governess Game, Girl Meets Duke 2, by Tessa Dare

I’ve fallen in love! Completely, totally and absolutely in love with The Governess Game by Tessa Dare. I’ve also come to a happy realization too. For as much as I admire and even lust a little for all the heroes in Tessa’s books, I’ve got a bit of a girl crush on her heroines more.

tessadare_thegovernessgame.PNG

I honestly keep reading book after book by Tessa because I admire and adore the heroines so much. Not only are they courageous and kind, but sweet, strong, sincere, and smart. I love that the women are relatable, real and rebellious for their time. But mostly I love how each woman in each story accepts herself, just as she is, and relishes in her own quirky uniqueness. Each story I read like this one, inspires me with all its witty humor, touching heartache and of course, the eventual, extremely romantic, happily ever after when the girl gets her Duke.

The Governess Game is more than poor girl meets wealthy man and they fall in love ... it’s more, it’s how they come to that point, that one magical memorable moment when they crash into each other at the bookshop and then their eyes meet. It’s all stammering and stuttering by the mesmerized Alexandra Mountbatten and all sly wolfish flirty grins by the green eyed handsome Chase Reynaud. A moment in time each assumes the other would forget easily enough, if it weren’t for the books getting jumbled and Chase leaving with Alex’s astronomy book.

The moment makes Alex start new dreams and new hopes, only to doubt that she would ever be in a position to have a man like him in her life, but she resigns her thoughts to at least have that dream tucked away as Alex goes on about her clock business until the day she finds herself needing to be in the green eyed devil’s employ.

Chase on the other hand, seems as if he flirts his way through life with every woman, no matter her status, and although quite true, it’s also quite a rouse. The soon to be Duke believes himself to be unworthy of affection, unworthy of family and definitely not worthy of any admiration. He is a rake, a rogue, and possibly the last man on earth worthy of his new Governess ... unfortunately, that won’t stop him from wanting her.

Both Alex and Chase has amazingly touching pasts, filled with thrilling adventures and heartbreaking loss. I love the complexity and the engaging layers of their personalities ... Neither Alex nor Chase are truly as they seem. Alexandra Mountbatten is a multi-faceted diamond, beautiful and strong with hidden gifts. While Chase Reynaud is a self deprecating rake and seemingly selfish beyond reason, in spite of his looks, or maybe because of them, he has a very caring heart and a giving soul hidden deep, waiting for the right person to truly see him.

I just wish I could actually live in Tessa Dare’s book world ... I never want to put her books down! Absolutely thee most wonderful reading!



Boots by Megan Erickson

Can I just say, WOW! What a mind blowing love story! I was reeling and riveted by all intensity, emotions, and the pure unadulterated passion between Tara and Lance that sizzles off the pages in lusty heat-waves! Boots by Megan Erickson is intoxicatingly erotic with powerful characters, refreshingly sexy and a heart-teasing love story! I was enthralled and mesmerized, never putting the book down until I found out Lance and Tara’s fate. The writing is brilliant, tender and thrilling at the same time, and I recommend reading with a box of tissues, it’s truly an ugly-cry- tear-jerker story with a cheer-worthy HEA!

meganerickson_boots.PNG

So much goodness to say and not enough words pop into my head to say it, but here goes ... I LOVE this book! (Ha, that wasn’t so hard) The chance meet up of Tara and Lance is perfect! Lance’s seduction is bold, daring and dark. Their insta-lust, their ballsy unfiltered honesty, and their need to forget their messed up lives in each other’s arms, even if it’s only a one nighter, has an addictive wow factor.

For me, it was all about the boots and how that became the title, triggering a wild fascination. Like how they both wore and needed the boots, and how the well-worn boots symbolize so much of their lives and personalities. Tara’s boots are part of her tough attitude but also hides her vulnerability from a harsh life on the run. Lance’s boots seem to keep him grounded, focused, a reminder of his past and on his inevitable revenge ... but when Tara slips on his boots the morning after the hook up, Lance sees Tara in a whole new light. Like maybe she could be a good fit, or as a welcome warmth to fill his life with hope, lifting his fog of hate. Lance’s endearing promises, his inner demons, and the way Lance and Tara have a hard choice to make is absolutely gripping! Will they let the past go, and move on together or sacrifice happiness for their brother’s mistakes.

This thrilling story had me guessing at every turn! I’ve always enjoyed Megan Erickson’s books, but this emotional roller-coaster-Romeo-and-Juliet-like read embedded itself wonderfully deep with so many feels, keeping me on edge and craving more little mentions of the special boots. I will be reading Boots over and over for years to come for shooting a big arrow in my direction and getting a direct hit in the five-star-bulls-eye of my heart!

Covet (Vegas Sins 2) by Rosanna Leo

Covet is out now! A fresh, contemporary, sexy-sexy read by Rosanna Leo. Not only is she one of my automatic-one-click authors, but I truly adored all her wonderful words in this amazing romance! Rosanna’s book Vice, Vegas Sins 1, was a totally awesome read, and now in Covet, Vegas Sins 2, Rosanna Leo has wowed me again! Sexy, Russian millionaire looking for love, yes please! Covet is absolutely unputdownable!

rosannaleo_covet.PNG

I’m completely gah-gah over Alex Markov! The insta-connection Alex feels for Dana is fantabulous! That lusty build- up between Dana and Alex, from a strangers hook-up in a dive bar to a chance encounter at the hotel that let’s all the spark-filled memories of that one night sizzle them up again is just spectacular! The range of feelings these two characters go through, and how perfect they seem on the outside but so broken and sorrowful on the inside is such a great storyline full of twists and secrets, danger and heartache. I adored the story within the story, and how relatable it is with the bad ex-relationships not pushed into the “oh this happened” background, but weaved into the present and shared equally with each other to help each other heal. I love how Alex’s past is hounding him, putting him on guard while he still deals with his guilt and regrets, as Dana’s ex is haunting her emotionally, making her feel inadequate for anyone else. Each of them is stuck in the past and focused on all the wrong things, but soon realizing the fresh start of a new life staring them in the face of the fabulous person standing right in front of them now ... its just amazing writing that had all my attention and all my heart on every page.

The simmering, undeniable attraction that Alex has for Dana is just dreamy. Alex Markov may be infamous, may be beyond wealthy, may be unbelievably gorgeous and may be a paparazzi target for a crime he didn’t commit ... but deep down, Alex is just a man. A deeply hurting man, who would love to find real love and have a happy life. Meeting Dana seems to be an answer to his unasked prayers, but he shouldn’t drag her into his mess, and he’s too fascinated by Dana to let her go. No one has ever made him feel so free to be himself, and now he is simply addicted to this wonderful woman.

Now Dana Hamill has a new life to choose as well, accept herself just as she is, defects and all, or settle for less than she deserves or needs ... the choice is hers for the taking. That sounds easy, but Dana has always been the reasonable one, the responsible one, the giving one ... always the planner and always sticking to the plan. Still licking her wounds from medical news and a sudden break up with her fiancée, Dana lives in Vegas, works in Vegas and now has to plan a party to cheer up her sister, while reeling in her own pain. Bumping into her one-nighter hook- up mystery man at the Vice Hotel lobby just made this week a whole lot more interesting, times ten. Turns out, he’s not just a random hot guy nobody in a tiki bar bathroom, oh no ... he’s thee Alex Markov, thee famous Russian multimillionaire of oodles of hotels and casinos, and he seems to want her, any way he can have her ... oh my! Yes! Yes! and Yes!

Must Recommend! Must Read! Must Get!

 

Dr. Strange Beard (Winston Brothers book 5) by Penny Reid

I am addicted to this Winston Brothers Series! The new sexy, sentimental journey of Roscoe and Simone is an excitingly angsty second chance romance in Dr. Strange Beard by Penny Reid! This story truly moved me to a new level of feels with all the sad and all the happy! It’s heartbreaks, heartaches and heart-tugs with a splash of secrets and a sexy reunion for these former high school best friends, now all grown up and discovering why they could never move on from their past.

pennyreid_drstrangebeard.PNG

A multitude of memories of unrequited love catapults Roscoe Winston from past to present constantly when Simone Payton comes back to Green Valley, driving Roscoe to do the only thing he can do with an incredibly exacting remembrance-brain ... he’s avoiding her and her bakery at all costs, even if he wants her doughnuts more than his next breathe. Unfortunately, sometimes the past just doesn’t want to stay where it belongs, and sometimes that’s not such a bad thing after Roscoe sees the woman Simone has become. Now Roscoe reckons he just needs to make new, happier memories with Simone, so the past ones won’t haunt him as much ... and just maybe Roscoe can convince Simone that this forever love thing is a chance worth taking ... but only with him, and only if forever.

Simone Payton had always had big goals to achieve and crime solving dreams since she was young, and one big heart hurt to overcome. Roscoe Wilson was her very best friend once upon a time ... then he just ghosted her in high school. Ten years later, he’s now a well respected doctor, a veterinarian, and a master at avoiding her ... but not for long. She’s been back home for sometime, undercover for the FBI, and it’s her job to get close to Roscoe to get to his no good father, but unwillingly, she’s a scientist not an operative. Simone knows deep down Roscoe is the love of her life, her one and only, but she’s just too scared and too proud to admit it ... but Roscoe is so damn fine, so damn sweet, so damn kind and so damn sexy, Simone can’t resist, especially when the gorgeous man stands there holding so many puppies! Her heart is all in. Her body is voting “yes, please” right along with her heart, but it’s those damn obstacles mucking everything up. How in God’s Green Valley is she suppose to do what she has to do and not break Roscoe’s heart again?

I simply adore all the heart felt angst and tear-filled push-pull sexual tension between Roscoe and Simone throughout the story. I couldn’t get enough of their heated misunderstandings, their funny flirtatious sides, and all their struggles trying to bat down all the feelings surfacing again after so many years apart. I thoroughly enjoyed how both of their special quirky gifts compliment and enhance each other, making Roscoe and Simone authentic, engaging and intriguing characters, just absolutely uniquely unique as only Penny Reid can imagine them and get it all down on paper for all of us to savor her special snappy sassy flare!

Fabulous writing!
Fabulous characters!
Fabulous love story!
and a Fabulous must-experience book series!

One Dance With A Duke by Tessa Dare

How lovely to be in this regency romance world! I adore this story! Secrets, scandal and sumptuous sexiness on  every page!! One Dance With A Duke is fantastically romantic and the first in a series, but can be read as a stand- alone too. Tessa Dare has out done herself in this one ... it’s completely captivating!  

tessadare_onedancewithaduke.PNG

Lady Amelia D’Orsay is a delight! I love how she has happily resigned herself to being a poor spinster society lady, more interested in baking and party planning than getting married at this point in her life, but she still makes the effort to be social, all be it, a wallflower, at every societal occasion. She is funny, strong and so caring. I love how she makes logical decisions and yet impulsive to remedy all her family problems. On one special evening, Amelia is on a collision course with a destiny she would never expect ... her wild brother is indebted to a certain Duke that only shows up at Midnight, dances one dance, then disappears mysteriously ... well, Amelia will make sure the Duke’s one dance is with her, even if she’s the one initiating ... can one dance with the Duke change Amelia’s life? Yes!

Spencer Dumarque, the fourth Duke of Morland is the perfect brooding, handsome, mystery man. He’s quiet, secretive and commanding. The Duke hates crowds. Hates social events. Hates people, well most people. Spencer would rather be with his beloved horses, and not surrounding himself with desperate, shallow girls trying to enslave him into marriage, but he has to keep up the image of a Duke for his family’s sake. One dance, one bow, and out of the ballroom. It’s basically all his nerves can handle. On one final occasion of the season, it’s midnight and all eyes are on him, all ladies are vying for his attention ... then she happens ... Lady Amelia asks him to dance, demands more like it, and she leads him to the dance floor. Now Spencer has no idea what to make of any of this impertinence, as his world starts to tilt, spinning out of control and he has no one to blame but his untamed heart and the wretched Stud Club he was forced to join in order to keep his promise to his beloved horse. Now how to gain the last of the tokens, Osiris, and Amelia’s heart before his world collapses is anyone’s guess.

What a whirlwind read! It’s enchanting, engaging and exciting all the way through! So many unexpected events that take these two characters on so many new adventures ... the most surprising one is love!

 

After Care and Midlife Crisis by L.B. Dunbar

I have a delightful double dose of deliciousness today! I have a new book love and its name is the over forty finds love in this amazingly addictive, super sexy romance series, After Care and Midlife Crisis by L.B. Dunbar.

lbdunbar.PNG

Both books are written so beautifully. The storylines and the characters are just so unique, layered, engaging and so relatable. Simply the best over forty romances I’ve ever read. Reading these books was a nice change and so refreshing. I love all the romance genres, but I really loved how genuine and magnetic theses two older, over forty guys are ... so interesting, angsty mature and impossibly imperfect in these two stories, as are their attractive soulmates who are also over forty, battling their own life experiences themselves. I really loved how these books portray love having no rules, no barriers and definitely no age limit when forever-love walks into your life. These two books have all the feels, all the drama, all the overwhelming-overthinking and then all the inner strength that it takes to leap into love again after life leaves you in a heartbreaking lurch ... being over forty and single is my definition of the underrated tweenage years for adults, but these books are incredibly inspiring for a happily ever after at any age.

AfterCare

How could one celebratory Hawaiian vacation change the whole trajectory of Edie Williams’ life? Easy. And his name is Tommy Carrigan. Big, tall, commanding, ex-rockstar and now band manager for a famous rock band. Edie can’t believe her eyes. All that hot, muscley tattooed man and he wants to spend all his time with her. Her. A forty three year old divorcée with two grown kids and a tentative second chance at life that she never ever dreams would happen. Now all she needs is the courage to go for it, or as the kids say “YOLO”.

Tommy Carrigan feels like the wind just got knocked out of him when he sees the gorgeous woman by the pool. Years of groupies and hang ons, fame and fortune, fakers and takers, have hardened his old heart. Tommy doesn’t believe in love, only because he’s never seen it or felt it ... but there’s just some special spark that singes his chest when he looks at the big beautiful eyes of the enchanting Edie. She’s a sweet mystery Tommy is more than willing to investigate, many times over. There’s no time like the present, and Tommy loves presents. He may be a bit grey and crusty on some of his edges, but he knows a great thing when he sees it, and Edie is the one who will not get away so easily.

Midlife Crisis

Midge Everette is single. Not just single, over forty with kids and divorced single. A total fish out of water as she navigates a new life, a new city and new people. Her sons keep her on her toes, but all that changes at a school fundraiser when she sees a tall, dark and handsome silver fox oozing charm ... Hank Paige must be the original bad boy that’s been playing in her fantasy dreams for decades, now come to life. There’s no way on earth he’d ever be interested in her ... right?

Hank Paige likes his life. It’s low key, uncomplicated and groupie free. Maybe he’s getting rusty in the lady department but he could swear he just met his soulmate, Midge. An unusual name for a very unusual lady, and what a beauty. It’s too bad he decided long ago that he’s too messed up for a good woman to put up with him, but he could still have a friend, and maybe some fun with Midge too if he plays his cards right ... one unexpected sexy meet up in the powder room and all he knows is that Midge is one hell of a woman he needs more time with ... so much more.

So there you have it ... two very amazing books to sink your hopeful romantic hearts into! Heart Hugs All Over!

On a special note, my photo above of the two paperbacks I’ve been reviewing today is not just a great picture of two books I own ... nope. These two gorgeous books are an especially thoughtful gift from my most wonderful friend, and an awesome author herself, Leslie McAdam, who was at a book signing event for her own spectacular books, and met this terrific author L.B. Dunbar! Then Leslie surprised me by sending me these two lovely paperbacks signed by L.B. Dunbar herself! I am so beyond thrilled to hold these books in my hands!! #DayMade #LoveHard #EatCupcakesEnjoyTheFrosting #LuckyBookGirl Thank you Leslie, you are such a kind and generous friend ... and Thank you L.B. Dunbar for the amazing hotties that are Hank and Tommy! I can’t wait to read more stories in this series!

Love & Ink by J.D. Hawkins

Secrets, scars and second chances all rolled up in one sexy, sexy romance! Love & Ink by J.D. Hawkins blew me away! It’s excellent! Young love blown apart, harsh truths and horrible secrets, only to come back seven years later with even more pain and more cover ups. Ash and Teo has the kind of love that lasts a lifetime ... even if that means never being together to protect it. Teo’s self-sacrificing is sensational and heartbreaking! All the tension and unsaid feels between Ash and Teo is the best ... Loved it!

jdhawkins_love&ink.PNG

All the books I’ve read of J.D.’s are fantastic, exciting and so emotionally enjoyable in so many ways, and this story is just as wonderful! J.D. really has a way with words and making everything feel so real with his characters, his writing style is addictive. His attention to detail is fantastic! It’s like I’m walking around in L.A. seeing everything and just being in Teo’s head and heart. I love how the book kept me guessing about all the things that kept Ash and Teo apart for seven years, but I really loved when they finally get back together ... sextastic!

All Ash’s heartache and frustrations, passion and insecurities come alive in the pages as she struggles with bumping into the love of her life at his Tattoo Shop. So many things she dreamed of saying to him if she ever saw Teo again after all these years, fly right out of her head as she swoons and stares at the man who still has her heart in the palm of his hand ... will he crush it in one final squeeze, or cradle it, holding her close so he can restore their love back and the future she’s always dreamed of with him.

For years, Teo has tried to reinvent himself, escaping his past and barely surviving most days until he discovers his love of art and tattoos. Now a big deal tattoo artist in L.A. with a wait list months long, Teo feels at peace with himself, mostly. Only one thing is gnawing at his soul .. Ash. The love of his life he stood up at prom and left her high and dry without a word, not even a goodbye. Teo still feels he did the right thing, for himself and for Ash, but seeing her again, now, he’s not so sure. Maybe honesty is the best policy with Ash ... as he tries to justify his past and thinks about a fresh future, maybe he does deserve a second chance with the only woman he will ever love ... or maybe he should just keep walking, because can anyone truly go home again?

This story has just the right amounts of sweet and sexy, with lots of angst and romance blended in perfectly! What an awesome read! You’re gonna LOVE Teo!

I’ve always been a huge Alexa Riley fan and always will be! Sometimes a girl just needs a quick and dirty read ... and this one hits all the spots! This wonderfully romantic, over the top sexy story did my heart good! Loved it!

 

Sergio by Natasha Knight

Heartbreaking and haunting at the same time ... Sergio by Natasha Knight was unexpected and amazing! All the dark Mafia storyline and intricate characters I’ve come to enjoy in Natasha’s books, but this one has a special sharp edge like a blade slicing through all the darkness and bringing me to tears ... Brutally beautiful.

natashaknight_sergio.PNG

Edgy and exciting, sexy and scary, devastating and dangerous, this dark mafia romance has it all. This story is unlike any other dark romance I’ve ever read. Sergio and Natalie have their two worlds colliding and spinning out of control ... wrong place at the wrong time ... fate or destiny, it doesn’t matter anymore, their lives are intertwined forever and nothing can stop the inevitable ... Time is a luxury, love is a gift and family is everything ... Sergio knows the clock is ticking, everything is closing in, he has too much blood on his hands, he is losing control and he will pay the ultimate price ... but for a small fleeting moment, Sergio takes what he wants. He desires love, craves closeness and needs Natalie above all else ... no matter the cost. Sergio just needs to have a fleeting bit of happiness, and needs to leave his mark on his family before it all fades into the blackness ... For all good things must come to an end.

I’m wrecked. Tear stained and heartbroken. This whole story drops hints all along the way ... I knew deep down, I felt all the shadows creeping in on every page, but I just went into denial, hard ... I have never read a book with an alternative HEA like this ... Never in all my darkest dreams would I have imagined Sergio’s story going the way it did. But live by the sword ...

Natasha Knight writes from her heart and her soul and goes wherever they lead her ... it’s awesome, it’s unexpected and it’s a spectacular reading escape into her dark erotic mafia worlds ... I always love where her words take me, no matter how many tear filled surprises may torment me along the way ... because Sergio did break my heart and I will be haunted by his unforgettable, beautifully brutal story forever.

 

Must Read! Billionaire For Hire (For Hire Series) by Cat Johnson

As always, Cat Johnson captivates! I love this new series! A sexy spin off from the Navy Seals series, Billionaire For Hire is just as exciting and just as sexy! I love Brent Hearst and his POV is fun loving, easy going, with a brilliant billionaire attitude. He has too much time to kill, too many charity events and too many woman on his hands, sometimes simultaneously. This story is funny, action packed and full of surprises!

Sombra, Love In Translation 2 by Leslie McAdam

What can I say? Tavo is all mine, I’m calling dibs! Sombra by Leslie McAdam moved me in so many, many heart melting moments from beginning to end! All I could think about is this gorgeous Spanish man, with his luscious accent, whispering sweet sexy words, and doing dark, naughty things, slowly, passionately and so sensually ... it made me shiver all over ... Gasp-tastic!

lesliemcadams_sombra.jpg

I was thrilled by all the drama, and authentic emotions Tavo and Kim have of being honest about their shadowy-selves and how all the character’s secret desires came into the light ... what a love triangle this story weaves!

I love how Leslie McAdam writes. It’s deep, it’s personal, and she expresses everything with so much meaning, and with so wonderfully multifaceted characters ... this story is so much more than just a sexy, fun romance of hot guy meets dream girl ... it’s a relatable revelation. An emotional, touching, beautiful journey of self discovery and self acceptance, and of two soulmates with a new found freedom to find themselves as they find true love. I laughed, I cried, and I swooned all the way through, but mostly it made me think ... Do I want to release my dragonfly, confronting and freeing my own inner shadows that are holding me back from flying to new, exhilarating heights in my life? Yes, yes I do!

Gustavo De La Guerra Cantor is frustrated. Spain born and Spain raised, Tavo loves his ancestral home, his family, his friends, his farm and his life in general, but not his future ... something’s missing. His heart yearns to sing, play guitar, travel to America and be free. Tavo’s family on the other hand needs him to stay in Spain, carry on the family’s olive oil business and marry the neighbor’s daughter to seal their fate. Not his future, not his dream, and not the love of his life. Honor and loyalty pulse through Tavo’s veins like molasses, but his heart yearns for the one woman who can see all of him, every shadow, every secret, and yet embrace him, love him and cherish him, no matter what. One minute at the airport changes everything ... seeing the vivacious, American girl that will be living with his family while she attends college, makes his heart rejoice and his body come alive ... This Kim Brown is his dream come true, he will capture that little dragonfly and never let her go.

Kim Brown is frustrated. Iowa born and Iowa raised, Kim is in a rut. She loves her family and friends but does not look forward to a planned out future ... she now has an amazing opportunity to travel, to learn, to explore, and not just Spain itself, but also in herself. Kim’s life is the same everyday. Her life is routine, never changing. This trip abroad will be her true coming out. Kim has decided to find out who she really is without everyone telling her who she is ... Spain will either be her destruction or her salvation, but either way she’s happy to be doing something out of her comfort zone ... she can be free to be whoever she wants to be, with no repercussions. Getting off the airplane, getting her passport stamped for the first time, excited, nervous and scared, then seeing the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on, stirs her inner dragonfly ... she ignites all over, inside and out like she’s been lit on fire by sparklers on the Fourth of July ... Gustavo De La Guerra is everything she’s been dreaming of in one sexy, sensual, spectacular package ... overwhelmingly perfect, but maybe too perfect. Maybe a dream is just that, a dream.

Sombra is an insightful reading experience, an engaging contemporary romance, and a tender erotic d/s story ... Spicy-Sexy, yes. Romantic, yes. Drama, yes. Surprises, yes ... but it also has a whole new level of extra- special love-layers in this love story like in no other book I’ve ever read. Sombra will just make you feel all the amazing feels ... Extraordinary!

I'm a huge fan girl of Leslie McAdam's books because every story she tells comes from a deeply moving personal place that reaches out, hugs me and brings me into her world with open arms and an open heart.  Sombra makes me swoon, makes me gush and makes me dream ... it's fantabulous!  So just get Sombra ... and all of Leslie's books while you're at it!

Surf’s Up!! Serendipity has never been sexier! The book stars aligned and I insta-loved No Pants Required by Kim Karr from the very first chapter! It’s funny, fresh and fantastic! My very first contemporary romance by this author and her writing voice, the storyline, the characters just drew me all in ... and the many, many, hot love scenes are all sexcellent!

All the emotional drama and all the coincidental chaos Cam and Makayla find themselves in the middle of is absolute funness! Two New York City transplants, striking out, being brave and now living in Laguna Beach California, both trying to find themselves and escape all the pressures of what’s expected. The whole story had me laughing and sighing all the way through and all the sexy awkwardness is ahhh-dorable!

Also, this book should come with a you’re-about-to-swoon warning and A/C! Lots of A/C, It’s so HOT!! Confession time: I only bought this book for the cover ... yes, it’s true, because this cover model is one of my absolute favorites and I buy all the books with his gorgeousness on them!! But then I started reading and I totally fell in love with the story! I love how Cam and Makayla just click ... how they talk about everything, laugh together at inside jokes, just understand each other on many levels, plus their sexual connection is not only passionate but so fresh and fun and definitely there’s no Pants Required for all this awesomeness! What a great book!

Camden Waters has it all ... or so it seems. Living the dream in So Cal as a life guard, and trying to get a grip on his life, Cam comes across as a bad boy manwhore but everything about Cam is mysterious ... He is definitely a deeply layered man with many, many talents. A fun, flirty, encounter in the first class section on the airplane from NY to Cali, makes Cam rethink his womanizing and not stop thinking about the amazing seatmate who rocked his world ... well almost. It’s wonderful how fate loves him, and always seems to vote Cam’s way, because now he has a chance to finish what he started with the mystery girl on the plane ... she’s his new neighbor and Cam is nothing if not neighborly ... very neighbor friendly.

Makayla Alexander is upset, uptight, and upside-down now that her whole life blew up in a matter of months. No more job, no more family, and no more fiancé. After all the wallowing and sobbing, plotting and planning, Makayla puts on her big girl panties, flies to SoCal to try to start over with her best friend turned roommate and a soothing sunny beach to greet her everyday ... now all she has to do is keep her girly parts in check because the hot guy with the B tattoo keeps bumping into her life at every turn, first at the club and then on the plane ... and now he’s her neighbor! Holy hot heatstroke, it’s gonna be that kind of sunburnt summer and it’s her heart that’s gonna be needing all that aloe to help her keep that crazy hot lifeguard from sizzling her into bits!

 

 

One Taste of Sin #4 by Amanda Siegrist

Talk about exciting!! All the sexy romance with a heaping spoonful of suspense!! Fantastic! One Taste of Sin is book four in this series ... a stand-alone read, that’s so engaging, mysterious and full of unexpected twists and turns from beginning to end! Amanda Siegrist’s books always delight me, and this one did not disappoint! Like all her others, the characters are authentic and fun, while also being complicated and compelling. What a great read!

Stitch is a hot mess! A bad boy tattoo artist with a checkered past, who’s bad at love, bad at relationships, bad at holding his temper and who just so happens to push away anyone and everyone who cares about him. Lucky for him, a few friends are unpushable ... but when Stitch gets the twitch, he’s gone. Unfortunately, just when he wants to get gone, he falls in love with the most beautiful, independent, no bullshit, fierce woman he’s ever seen ... too bad she’s just a one and done ... and a cop. Susan’s way too good for the likes of this loser with a past ... But Stitch really, really wants her ... and Stitch usually gets what he wants and how he wants it.

Susan has one of the most amazing sex nights of her life with the hottest guy she’s ever seen, and he ghosts her ... now six months later he’s knocking on her door and all she can do is stand there babbling and drooling. But no. Not again. Stitch was just a sex itch that needed scratching at the time, and now is not that time. Susan’s working on a serial killer case, her best friend is pregnant and needs help, and her lonely but busy life doesn’t not need Stitch and all his lovely tattoos and gorgeous abs, and sweet words to be a distraction ... oh boy but what a distraction!  As the murder mystery comes to a head, all the ups and downs with Stitch, it all just makes her head spin ... too bad she’s falling for the asshole, and too bad she can’t get a read on the killer reeking havoc on her city.

I really was on pins and needles reading this, so suspenseful! I honestly couldn’t tell who the serial killer was and I wanted to knock Stitch upside his head every time he pulled a ghost move on Susan ... but what chemistry, what passion, and what a totally cool opposites attract contemporary suspense romance this is and it really kept me guessing right to the end.

Seriously awesome!

 

Reckless by Lex Martin

OMFG! What a great, great contemporary romance by the writing genius that is Lex Martin! Reckless is unbelievably, irresistibly, addicting! It’s been so, so long since I’ve had a book completely capture all of my attention to the point of making me say to myself, “I Can Not Put It Down And I Must Keep Reading Until The Very Last Page, but OMG, I have to go to work and do all kinds of adulting crap I don’t want to do because I MUST keep reading Reckless!!”

lexmartin_reckless.PNG

I just fell head over heals for the super storytelling and excitingly emotional feels on every single page! I’ll take hot, tattooed, single dad rancher for one thousand Alex!! Oh, and add all the crazy, heated, passion that’s off the freakin-charts-sexual-chemistry between Ethan and Tori ... it all makes this book a dream come true romance read for this reader!! Yaaassss!! I’m so slappy happy I read this book! My absolute favorite by this author so far!! It’s already on my must read over and over list!! Yes, it’s THAT good people!

Ethan Carter being all bossy, big, badass with boyish charm just buttered my biscuit ... and his sweet babies all yummy and adorable ... yes, I’ll take that nanny job and he wouldn’t even have to pay me just to get to look at all that manly man all day. Seeing all that grinning goodness would be payment enough!! What a super good guy!! The best kind of guy!! What a great character and so many layers to his desires, needs, hurts and his capacity to love is amazing!! What an awesome dad and rancher, taking care of his family and sacrificing so much for their happiness ... seriously, a great guy! **heart bursting** But when he sees his new nanny, and gets a load of all that luxurious dark long hair and that sassy mouth that needs to be doing a lot more than talking ... he’s a hooked-lined-and-sinker-goner, a one-hundred percent under her magic spell love puppy. There’s no place on earth Ethan would rather be ... too bad his divorce isn't final yet.

Tori Duran is a total balls-to-the-walls, kickass woman, with a heart of gold, so after an all consuming relationship incinerating her heart leaving nothing but ashes and turning off her unavailable-man-magnet for all eternity, she’s in desperate need of finances, friends and fun ... but not too much fun. Tori thinks she’s too quick to jump into things, especially hot guys, heart first and thinking later, so all that kind of crazy needs to stop. From now on she’s determined to be a grown up, a street smart dater, and to never get her heart stomped on ever again .... but then a job offer for the summer has her head spinning and her panties melting at the first sight of the sexiest, yummiest, hottest man Tori has ever seen in her twenty three years on the planet. Holy hubba hubba, Ethan Carter is the walking definition of a gorgeous unavailable man, and her new employer. All her bluff and fluster, all her tomboy attitude, and all her stand offish smart mouth quips can’t keep all her must-jump-his-bones hormones on the back burner for long. Tori wants this man, every single inch of this man, and she already loves his kids to pieces .... so of course, with her luck, he’s in the middle of a nasty divorce! Tori’s in sooo much trouble, but the best kind of trouble!

Now all Max can do is stay faithful to her memory, mourn her absence, lash out at anyone who says she’s dead and try to clear his name for Mia’s disappearance ... Holy Smokes what a guy!!

All seems hopeless years later as Max Hamilton barely lives each day, burying himself in work and determined to solve the mystery of his wife’s drowning ... but deep in his heart he feels her, sees her around every corner, and is haunted by all the unresolved issues that plague his mind from all the lost opportunities with Mia. “If Only’s” and “I Should’ve’s” beat on his brain like a drum, making him full of guilty regrets and forcing Max to see his life and marriage in a new light, a new truth. He vows that if he ever has another chance at love with Mia, he will be his true self, his dominant self, and his love will never be doubted again.

Mia was a poor girl who met the dream man every girl could ever hope for ... She’s trying so hard to be perfect and to fit into Max’s fancy life. But she never seems to be able to make him happy. All Max does is work. Sure the love making is nice, but she knows he’s holding back, not giving his whole self, so she tries even harder to be the perfect wife. When he’s gone again on another business trip that she’s not allowed to go on, she heads to her favorite spot near a cove to swim, but gets interrupted by a very jealous old flame who tries to kidnap her for ransom ... only things don’t go as planned and Mia is left alone, lost and searching for who she really is ... until something sparks her memory and she goes searching to find her life.

Gotta Read! Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Oh my god, where do I begin to tell you all how I’ve fallen madly in love with Truth or Beard by Penny Reid. Why haven’t I read her books sooner?! I’m so mad at myself for having this book sitting on my kindle all this time and not reading it till now! It’s an absolutely, positively brilliant book in every way! Truth or Beard is sweet, sexy, laugh-out-loud too funny, and I am absolutely, positively smitten with these bearded hotties, the Winston brothers.

pennyreid_truthorbeard.PNG

I love Penny Reid’s pure balls-to-the-walls boldness in her writing and her amazing, vivid imagination that makes the most beautifully quirky pictures with words on each page! All of her characters have the funniest down-to-Earth, off-the-charts unique personalities and have the most wildly inappropriate, did-They-just-say-that-out-loud-conversations that are the funniest I’ve ever read!

I just can’t sing this book’s praises loud enough ... it’s just fantastic! And big bearded good-hearted heroes will always be my book-thing!

Duane Winston has a rep. He’s a good guy, but kind of on the direct, blunt, and quick to rise to any occasion kind of guy. He has a twin, Beau, but other than being identical looking, they are pretty much opposites in the personality department.

Duane keeps all his emotions under a tight wrap, never wears his heart on his sleeve, and definitely doesn’t talk about feelings. He races cars, fixes cars and owns cars. Now that’s all Duane’s life goals in a nutshell ... except for the girl who could ruffle his feathers, tease him till the cows come home, and give as good as she can take faster and better than anyone else on the planet moves back to town. Now all Duane can think about is how to make Jessica James his sweetheart for as long as they both shall live, preferably right here in Green Valley. Now all he has to do is maybe pretend to be Beau, just for a few minutes, no harm in that right?

Jessica James has been gah-gah over the ultimate nice guy, Beau Winston, since forever, and his twin Duane has been her arch nemesis for even longer than she can remember ... but no one is going to squash her dreams of seeing the world and living the life she’s always wanted.

Well, Jess will travel just as soon as she can pay off her school debts to become a math teacher, and then she’s off to experience everything the planet has to offer. One single dreamy moment of being kissed like she was Beau Winston’s everything might keep a girl in Green Valley forever. Only one problem. That fantastic kisser who rocked her world and made seven minutes in heaven seem like way too short a time in the lust zone with all the hands and lips touching her all over then suddenly pumping the brakes, giving her that crazy 'you're up to something' grin she’s seen a million times on that face, is Duane “wow what a kisser” Winston. Not his twin. Damn that man! Now he’s gone and done it, making her fall madly in love with the big beardilicious aggravation!

Jessica and Duane are two of the greatest characters and my new favorites for so many reasons. They are warm, light-hearted and unique. Their sense of humor is refreshingly open and honest, sassy yet sincere, teasing and flirty all at the same time. I’ve never read a funnier comedic contemporary romance ever! It’s sexy, sure, but also just so darn sweet ... Duane won me right over, as soon as I stopped being so mad at him.

Duane Winston had me spitting nails one minute, and lusting after him the next, just like Jess! And Jessica was one big bundle of nervous energy whenever she was around Duane. Her heart ping-ponged around so many times I got a bit dizzy, but only in the best way. Great side characters too, like all of Duane’s brothers and Jessica’s best friend Claire, adding so many laugh out loud moments and heartfelt emotional hugs all the way through.

What an amazing, fun book to read in every way and I’m so sorry I took so long to read it ... so now that I’m thoroughly addicted to Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers Series, I’m going to have to read them all, I especially can’t wait to read all about Cletus!
