Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down throug h the valley of my breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were alway s supposed to be.”
I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted.
He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel l ike him.”  
Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrap ped high around his chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this m agical place where twilight touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows.
He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my d ress and ripping it free, my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, h ands racing across his chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the strugg le that whimpered from his spirit.
He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nip ped as he held my face steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with t his murmurs of kisses at my jaw and ear and neck.
“Zachary…please.”
I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me.</ div>
His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jump ed and ticked and flexed, as if the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, search ing for a way to be released.
My gaze traveled across the tattoo on his chest.
Relentless.
“Fight for me,” I begged.

Review: THE HOUSE MATE by Kendall Ryan!

    AN_banner_WEB  

My Review: Kendall Ryan is one of those authors that I discovered through the different review and PR groups I belong to.. and I'm so grateful for it. I hate to think I would have missed out on some awesome books if I hadnt started reviewing her work. And now, I list her as one of my go-to contemporary romance authors when I need a guaranteed, satisfying HEA.

Now, speaking of HEA, my one complaint about The House Mate is the ending. It was a great one, for sure, but I just felt like everything happened too fast. The big climax at the end felt like a lot of lead up, but then a swift conclusion. I would have loved to see that stretched out a bit more. But this is still a great book, and I couldn't put it down. Going back to work after my lunch break was harder than normal today because I didn't want to put this book down.

Cover Lovin': Oh my! Two thumbs up.

Recommendation: Each book in the Roommates series can be read as a stand-alone.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! Great read - I wish the ending could have been more of a slow burn - but that doesn't lessen the book's charm.

Happy Reading!

    house mate_amazonWhat’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together. Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life. His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot. The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?   This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

Release Blitz: PROVACATIVE by Lisa Renee Jones!

LRJreleasebanner

Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: April 18th Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM
Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

Review: THE PLAYER by K. Bromberg!

 
 
My Review: Let me start by saying... THAT ENDING, AHH! Like everything I have read by K. Bromberg, The Player was a one sitting read for me. I kept thinking I'd put it down after just one more chapter so I could get some chores done.. but then I would finish a chapter, and I'd have to keep going. I was just that hooked.

I loved Easton. He's a legitimately sweet guy, and he doesn't deserve all the pressure placed on him. I just wanted to hug him and make it all better. Trust me, Easton has moved to the top of my book boyfriends list. I should have known there was too much going on to be solved in just one book, but I am heartbroken all the same because I have to wait until July to find out what happens?! Noooo!

I highly recommend this book, and this author in general. K. Bromberg writes a seriously awesome story, and she never let's me down. The Player was awesome, and I'm currently in "force everyone to read it" mode, so I can talk about it with someone.

Cover Lovin': Yum!
Recommendation: Book one, no prior knowledge necessary!
Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)! I couldn't put it down and I need more now!!! 

Happy Reading!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.
Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything. So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him. Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on. And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play. But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Review: PAPER FOOLS by Staci Hart!

PaperFools_banner_RD

My Review: I love, love, love mythology. And as much as I love the original myths, I love modern versions or contemporary spins on them even more. So of course, when I saw this book mentioned, I had to hunt it down. And this story is a mix of everything I enjoy - one part Greek mythology, one part contemporary love story where two broken people come together. 

This was a very well-written story. I was hooked very early on, mostly because I love how this author modernized the Greek Gods, especially their feuds. But even though they're not thousands of years older, it doesn't mean they don't still have the same faults - and Staci Hart did an exceptionally good job making these larger-than-life characters believable and almost.. human. And on top of that, she made Dead and Lex equally as believable, and likable - despite their flaws. 

I can't wait to see where this series goes in the future!

Cover Lovin': Very awesome cover!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! Can't wait for book two!

Happy Reading!

Today we have the release blitz of Paper Fools by Staci Hart! I am so excited about this first in a new series from Staci. Check it out and grab your copy today!

Hearts & Arrows

Title: Paper Fools

Author: Staci Hart

Release Day: April 17th

About Paper Fools:

Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess. Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match. Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her. It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart. Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk. The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice. If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses. *Formerly titled Deer in Headlights, Paper Fools has been rewritten and reedited for your enjoyment.*

About Staci Hart:

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.   From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.

Review: THE MITUS TOUCH by Stoni Alexander!

Release Date: March 2017

Type: Series, Book 1, Contemporary Romance, Intrigue, Mitus Can Touch Me Whenever He Wants

About the Book: She’s desperate for the one man she must avoid at all costs…

Wealth manager Brigit Farnay despises Colton Mitus. And with good reason. He ripped away her family’s company during the most painful time in her life. Forced to work with him, she can’t deny that Colton is gorgeous, brilliant, commanding. And the enemy. Her traitorous body craves his touch every moment of every day. And then she finds out about the erotic games he plays…

Corporate raider Colton Mitus is success and power personified. He demands control in the boardroom and in the bedroom. So he shouldn’t be tempted by the newest member of the Mitus team. But he is. Brigit challenges him and frustrates him, but also quiets the demons that haunt him, especially as she agrees to be drawn into his secret, sinful world.

The most lucrative deal of Colton’s career places Brigit’s family’s company in jeopardy. When old enemies return hell-bent on ruining him, Brigit is the only person who can save him. But she’s been keeping secrets that could destroy everything… [Description from Goodreads.com]

My Review:

This was awesome! I started reading an hour before bed, thinking I’d get some read before passing out for the night - but no, I had to stay up until I finished it. Normally, I enjoy reading romance because, well… to be honest, I really enjoy the smut. But in this book, the smut just added to what was seriously a very intriguing story. I couldn’t put it down. The story itself is classic - a woman with a secret she needs to keep hidden from the man she’s falling for - but author Stoni Alexander gives it her own spin, making this book unique.

This is one of those cases where I’m so glad this was offered to review, because I’m not sure I would have ever heard about it otherwise. And I would have been really missing out. I can’t praise this enough, it was just that good. This is the only book the author has written, which breaks my heart a little because I’d love to read more by her. But fear not! There will be another book in the Touch series coming later this year, featuring some different main characters. I can’t wait!

Cover Lovin': Two thumbs up!

Recommendation: Book one, no prior knowledge necessary - but you'll be desperate for more by this author!


Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars! I couldn't put this down, and I cannot wait for more.

Happy Reading!
