(Riggins Brothers #5)


Being a single mom is not how I envisioned life would turn out. But after my happily ever after ended way too soon, I’m doing my best and taking each day as it comes. Life is full of surprises, though, both good and bad… like Marshall Riggins coming to my rescue in the pharmacy line.
The gorgeous Riggins brother has a heart of gold and looks mighty fine as a knight in shining armor, but I don’t need a handout nor the distraction. Too bad my heart doesn’t get the memo.
Suddenly he’s everywhere I am. With his stubborn smile and dark blue eyes, he sees way more than I wish he would. He looks beyond the broken fragments of my being and still wants me. I can’t help but think maybe he’s my second chance at a happy ending.
After watching my brothers find their magic and settling down, it’s time to admit I want what they have. It’s not just about the passion but the soul connection. The beautiful brunette fumbling through her purse in front of me in line doesn’t just catch my attention. She steals my heart.
Wren Wheeler is as stubborn as the day is long. The gorgeous single mom doesn’t want to accept my help… or my friendship. But her adorable baby girl doesn’t agree. In fact, she loves me. And the longer I spend with both of them, I know walking away isn’t an option.
She’s afraid of having her heart broken again, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve slowly fallen for Wren. And beat by beat, I think she’s falling too. 


Not my first read by the author and she is one of my favorites as well as a INSTA-READ one! I have read and re-read all the previous books in this series and was so excited when I got this! I knew Marsh was going to be special!

Marshall is the youngest Riggins Brother but the very smart one. He is thriving in the business, has a big heart and is sexy. What more can a man ask for? Well how about a Mom at the pharmacy store not having enough money to pay for her daughters meds. That melted my heart the way he helped her even if she tried to refuse is many times, not only that but he left her a little something and when the heroine Wren shows up at his office a few days later, it’s not for the reason one would think. I really loved Marsh’s heart so much! The heroine comes from a lonely background, after losing her husband who left her the best gift ever, the most adorable little girl *heart eyes* she isn’t really excited to be on any man’s radar. But Marshall doesn’t give up and when a Riggins brother wants something, he works hard for it. Boy did he ever! But when you see Marshall and the little cute babygirl, you will melt! Super sweet story, as always I loved this series and I am sad that this is the end but this series is a re-read through and through!

R E V I E W ➠ Fated Hearts by Kelly Elliott

(Southern Bride Book 8)


It was only meant to be a short trip—up to Chicago for two days and then back to Texas. At least, that was the plan until a massive snowstorm leaves me trapped in Chicago at a local hotel with no definite timeframe of when I can go back home. If that wasn’t a crazy-enough turn of events—I wake up to a beautiful princess standing in my hotel room.
She was definitely a sight to behold, but she’s not the least bit thrilled to see me—think Momma Bear finding Goldilocks lying in her bed type of annoyance.
You see, my princess turned out to be a tired and angry traveler who had been double-booked…in my hotel room. With no rooms left anywhere in the city, we are forced to bunk together to ride out the storm. Now all that’s left to determine is will we survive each other.
After a rocky start and some much-needed rest, Analise and I soon forge a friendship that turns into a no-strings-attached fling.
When the fairytale we got lost in melts away, we have an even bigger storm to weather that we never saw coming. The one where I’m faced with the uncertainty of having to walk away from the one woman who has opened a part of my heart I had thought was as frozen over as the city we found each other in.

Fated Hearts is a stand-alone novel and the last book in the Southern Bride series.

RELEASE DATE: September 28, 2021

“Are you asking me to sleep with you?”
He let out a soft laugh. “We did that last night, Anna. I’m asking if you want me to fuck you and show you just how good we could be together.”

Not my first read by the author and not my last. I have loved this series so much and sad to see it come to an end. I really want to scream that I loved it overly so much but our hero here gave me too many vibes that I really wanted to still smack him upside the head even after the HEA. It is a 50/50 love with him.

The hero here has a past, a not so favorite past of one night stands and no relationship type of nights. When he meets the heroine, he happens to be naked and in the same bed she was hoping to relax in after the airline debacle. Yes these two got stuck in the same hotel room after being stuck at the same airport. Needles to say, it was a hate-to-love relationship. They had their fun during that time, competing, the angst, the looks and finally the best part where all the pent up frustration form both meets. I will give the hero this he was honest the whole time with the heroine on his intentions so I give him credit for this but this execution’s at times, god NO, smack smack smack! Even knowing his past and the reason why, there were moments where I myself would have walked away and never looked back so the heroine was a better person than I would have been. She has back bone and spice but I felt for her at times, my heart broke for her. That said, as much as this frustrated me at times it also made my heart bloom. It felt like a game of tug of war for me.

We have this hero who is honest, fun, smart and sexy. Then you have a heroine who is living life, knows what she wants and so beautiful looking just like Cinderella herself. When these two came together it wasn’t all sugar and nice…but definite SPICE. I really just was hung up on how the hero treated the heroine at times, and it felt a little overly harsh on my end and I wasn’t expecting that so I held a grudge on the hero for a little. In my defense I really just wanted him to let her help him, but I did understand his feelings.

Expect angst, fun, laughter, spice, romance, heartbreak and pain! Again I am sad to see this series end but it has been a beautiful ride through out all of them!

R E V I E W ➠ Alpha CEO by M. Robinson


I came from nothing and made something of myself. I’ve only ever loved two things. Cars and her.
I took that passion and built an empire.
Now I’m the CEO.
The alpha.
On top of the world.
I’m not the carefree man she once knew.
That was the problem with being one of the richest men in the world—everyone thinks they know me, but they only know what I want them to.
I’m demanding.
My company thinks they can change me. Soften my image. Make me more appealing to the public.
Little do they know, the woman they hired was my best friend’s little sister, and the last time I saw her…
I broke her heart.


Not my first read by the author but sadly will be my last. All personal preferences and after reading romance books for over a decade, it just is not my style. I did give this author a lot of tries, but as a reader we know that once something just isn’t clicking to step away. I do wish the author the best. I will say that I was very ad because I LOVE LOVE the cover and the blurb got me hyped up.




The first 15%:- The word KID alone makes me cringe in any romance book used as an endearment but especially from someone under 10 years older than the heroine but especially when it just comes off more annoying than sexy. The hero & heroine jump right to fighting for dominance, especially the heroine, walking into The Alpha CEOs office with her business and speaking very highly of herself. I’m all for strong woman but to me she came off as arrogant in a naïve way. Then we have Alpha CEO who is more of a arrogant person himself except every time he calls her KID I cringe. That word just, to me doesn’t work. So the hero cheated and left on the heroine when she was 18 and they were together and the heroine now tells him that he could have still had a relationship with her parents and brother and his answer is: if i heard anything about you with another guy I’d have flown right back…yada yada. Um alright, that’s not really a reason to leave just a plot with words and very clique but yeah.

So I skipped a few chapters wanted to see what I was suspicious of. And of course, she got prego when they were younger and he left her. Forward to now when he finds out, threatening her with custody papers, I honestly thought he was going to actually hit her, the heroine being childish about her answer about his daughter and her saying ‘…and a baby you didn’t want?” makes no sense since he never knew in the first place. And it only got worse from then on, the heroines childish behavior I WANTED TO SLAP HER SO HARD.
That’s as far as I got. From the beginning where he tells her he fucked another girl while they were together to the first official start of this Office Romance the heroine explicitly explains her night before endeavors with another male. 

This may be someone’s taste but I don’t like it, makes me cringe & the drama in this was unnecessary, it only got worse after The Hero found out he had a daughter and that’s when I started disliking them both more and more.
DNF 52% Such a shame I fell in love with the cover & from the blurb was excited for this.

R E V I E W ➠ Untamed Devil by Melissa Ivers

(Nashville Devils #2)


I’m not ready to be a single dad…
I had my life all figured out.
Hockey. A revolving door of women. No strings. No worries.
Until my sister runs off with a man she’s just met and leaves my nine-year-old niece in my living room with nothing but a backpack, a stuffed snake named Leo, and a broken heart.
I need help.
Elle Hurst was only supposed to be in my life for one night–a curvy distraction with a big heart and a wicked sense of humor. But she’s volunteered to watch Chloe while she’s in town, and I have no choice but to let her.
It can’t last.
She has an expiration date, a life to get back to in Savannah, and I don’t do relationships. I know people don’t stick around no matter how much you want them to–it’s a lesson I’ve been taught my whole life.
I won’t risk losing my heart…or will I?

RELEASE DATE: August 26, 2021

NEW to me author and books. I’ve had a crazy year this year so I did not remember if I requested this ARC but it showed up either way, so I gave it a try. I am glad I did, I fell in love with both the Hero & Heroine.

Tag is a single-dad but in a little bit of a different way. He is a hockey star and well his life isn’t as easy as one would think. I fell in love with the hero from the start, I can appreciate why he had his walls up because of his past but he stood no chance with Chloe. She was just so adorable, sweet, beautiful and real. Their chemistry was not only physical but just an over all, and I loved watching them dance around one another and when we got to the beautiful moment, I was swooning and blushing in the same.

Very sweet story, love the sport romance vibe & the characters.

R E V I E W ➠ Risque by Elena M. Reyes

(Beautiful Sinner #5)


I’m the new KING of London, but it’s her body I crave to CONQUER.
Her enemies have become my own. Her body is my favorite toy.
We were never supposed to meet, but then there she was across the bar sitting beside my cousin’s newest obsession. A small little beauty with a grin on her sweet lips and a low-cut top meant to tease—to destroy a man’s self-control. She didn’t see me, but I took in every sensual inch while placing a target on her head.
Our paths will cross, and she’ll fight, but I’m a man of my convictions. My vow is unbreakable.
I’ll be back for you, my Venus. 


“Come for me, Venus. Feed me what is mine.”

Not my first read by the author, and def not my last. I have read all of Elena’s books and fell in love with each one. This one was exactly what I was hoping for, she has a knack for giving us The Mob Boss Alpha Scary Dark Romance Hero that is all about his heroine & I absolutely LOVE that about Elena’s books. It’s such a turn on everything she writes and the Romance kills (no pun intended 😉

Dark Romance to the core. Killing & Blood so beware. The moment the hero saw his heroine, it was meant to be. From him checking her out and having her followed as well as investigated, down to the first date he demanded. The heroine is no weak bone, she def gives him a run for his money. She is sweet, strong and beautiful. Sweet because her heart is huge, Strong because of who her father is and the life she’s lived in that family & Beautiful but she doesn’t even know how beautiful. This is not a pretty world, but Callum will do everything in his power to MAKE IT that way for his Venus. Aliana has lived a life of fortune yes but at the highest cost, she isn’t self centered, cold hearted or brutal like her father but she does know how to stand her ground and fake it till you make it. When she plays a dangerous game with Callum, she finally feels wanted, free and adored. She hasn’t felt alive in a very long time and with everything happening she can’t help but smile at the big mean looking man that calls her HIS VENUS!

What I loved about this aside from the whole Hero is all about his Heroine, is their chemistry. The way these two are with one another, the fun but sexy feeling at all times. I truly felt every one of them. I can’t wait for more & hope Elena never stops giving us amazing reads like this!

R E V I E W ➠ The Aristocrat by Penelope Ward


The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

RELEASE DATE: August 30, 2021

Not my first read by the author but may be my last. Uuuuh, I am so disappointed and mad I had to write this review first before I did anything else. This is all in a personal preference in books and story styles, but this one absolutely contained everything I disliked. This also was really hard for me to write because I always do HONEST REVIEWS and this hurts equally for me too especially when it’s a favorite author, but I am true to my heart and feelings and reviews so honesty is what you will always find in them, no matter how hard they are to write or say.

Now I will not be able to explain the WHY because it would fully spoil the whole book so it makes it even more harder to write this. I will say that I gave this a 3 instead of 2 star because of Sig the Hero’s cousin (actually wish he has a book instead, even if the ending may be not something anyone would want, I would have enjoyed it more I think.) My issue with this book is that in contained a number one pet peeve of mine as well as dislike. It’s one thing to have a book relate to real life but another when it’s more like a real life, things I IN REAL LIFE stay away from and dislike very much. Hence my personal preference dislikes. Let me say dislike one more time, I am so angry because I love this author I do but lately I think I just need to pull myself back. I have been giving it chances I really have but I guess it’s only fair to the author and myself that I move on because it doesn’t seem like it will change. So basically my whole Sunday is now ruined after all this because I am mad and sad at the same time. Needless to say, I might come back after the book releases and list my dislikes and the reasons so someone who reads my review understands that for some it may be something they enjoy but for someone who doesn’t like this sort of deal, all it does is make me hate read and end up hating in this care THE HERO. I will say that Sig, oh my little heart, I love him and well what he did…forever a hero! I will wait a few days after release to come back and actually post the WHY below!

Here is my issue with this book: the hero and heroine actually meet and hit it off, I fell in love with them together. It has a shocking end and then fast forward 5 years. The hero ends up marrying someone else, and it’s a true marriage, fast one but still true. The heroine isn’t my issue in all this until the end, but to me she just kind of went with the flow whatever the hero decided to do in the life changes. My biggest issue is the fact that when they see each other again, he jumps to her but yet is actually still fully married to someone else. Even if his wife knows the history of the heroine and how he was still in love with her when they married. The fact that they were married and moved on in a sense, drove me FUCKING NUTS when he just jumped after the heroine. To me that’s a real life drama BS i would avoid and hate to hear about and DISLIKES in all senses. I don’t care if you are in love with someone else you dedicated your life and marriage to one person and to me that’s cheating even if the hero doesn’t jump to the heroine when he sees her again and they have sex. To me this was the worse kind of cheating. The fact that the hero after “some time” gets a divorce with his wife, it’s only because he wants to let her go to find the love that she deserves. To me that’s a coward was to leave someone just because you want to be with another person. I wanted to burn the hero, and was disgusted with him in every way. Everything after that, the heroine being like a doormat to me, playing along with whatever…it just went down hill and i ended up skip reading the end of it knowing how much I was going to hate it. So that is why the star rating which honestly if I could go without giving it any stars like not having to rate it star wise and just write a review, would be better.

And Penelope if you ever see this or read it, know that I truly have been a huge fan of yours from your first book, but am very sad to have to part with your books, and I know you can’t write books that everyone loves and this is something coming from you so I’m not mad about that, I guess I am just disappointed in the situation that I have to part…but the good news at least, I can always still re read your books again that are safe for me 🙁

R E V I E W ➠ Running on Diesel by Melissa Foster

(The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor #9)


Desmond “Diesel” Black is a Nomad with the Dark Knights motorcycle club. He protects others with his life and always rides alone. Tracey Kline left the only family she had for a man who broke more than her spirit, leaving her untrusting and on her own. When a twist of fate reveals pieces of the other no one else sees, will they be able to help each other mend their past hurts and learn to trust the chemistry and connection that’s too strong to deny?


Not my first read by the author, she is one of my very top favorite and insta-read authors. Not only have I read almost every single one of her books but I also own more than 40 in paperbacks alone. Aaaaalso, this series is one of my favorites from her! I am and forever will be a WHISKEY FAN!

This one is a enemy-to because even though the heroine and hero have know each other for a while, the heroine comes from a hurtful past. Diesel has been protecting Tracey for a couple years now, keeping his distance but also keeping anyone from getting near her. What I love about these two is that the tension was so intense I was on the toes waiting for the blow up, and when it finally happened it was so raw, passionate and in need! Okay I will only say this because it’s a dislike of mine (personal preference) but the heroine does go on a date with another man even if he was a good guy and I actually can’t wait to read his book also but I had to skip that portion, I tend to read with all my feelings and knew if I fully read the date part because it wasn’t a bad date per-say there is a kiss involved, but the heroine did not feel anything for the date. They def were not meant to be but just because it’s in here in detail, I had to stop, skip that part and continue. That said, it’s that date that actually pushes the heroine over the edge and the beautiful explosion happened!

I have to say that Diesel is beyond SWOONY in a dark and grumpy way, but once you find out the hurt behind his grumpiness, you will cry rivers. It’s beautiful to see the heroine stand up for him, and want to be part of his life, be honest with him, connect. Everything about these two was beautiful even when painful!

If you want enemy-to with a lot of sexual tension build up that will have you explode, a grumpy, big, handsome and swoony hero, a strong heroine that has been hurt in the worst way possible and a love that you see coming from a mile THIS IS YOUR READ! I would highly recommend this whole series, the Whiskey Series is something you will want to re-read in the years to come. p.s. the title makes so much sense I can’t! The shock surprise in this will have you in tears and wishing you could go back! Heartbreaking but so damn beautiful!

p.s. Melissa just keep going forever on this series please because WE NEED MORE!

R E V I E W ➠ Flirt With Me by Kristen Proby

(The O’Callaghans #4)


There are two things Maeve O’Callaghan values more than anything else: her family and her career. Being the eldest daughter in a large, close-knit and somewhat chaotic Irish family means spending most of her nights in the family-owned pub, serving drinks and food, always accompanied by a smile. During the day, she’s a superstar real estate agent, selling homes on her beloved island just across Puget Sound from Seattle. She doesn’t have time for much else, and she’s perfectly okay with that.
Enter Hunter Meyers. He’s looking for a new place to call home, somewhere out of the city, and believes life on the island could be just the thing for him and his troubled teenage daughter. While in search of finding the perfect house, his sexy realtor catches his eye, making him feel things he hasn’t in years. But with the added baggage of a surly teen and a past that will never be forgotten, how can he make something permanent with the gorgeous Irishwoman who tempts him like no other?
Maeve isn’t just attracted to Hunter with his killer grin and muscles for days. The teenager that tries so hard to push her away also pulls at her heartstrings. Maeve understands the importance of family, and can see herself making just that with Hunter and his daughter. But when his past comes back to haunt him, will their love be strong enough, or will they be ripped apart forever?

RELEASE DATE: August 17, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the previous series books as well. I was excited and ready for this one!

AND OMG! I don’t know where to start but to say that Hunter SWOON SWOON DREAM BOOKBOYFRIEND! This is a combo of a Single-Dad Fighter that is all about the heroine! I can’t say I disliked any page! MUST READ!

After Hunter retires, his main focus is on his 15 year old daughter. She is a handful but lately seems to be more of a pain in the ass. But he is dedicated to her and would do anything for her. Even if she might hate him if they move to a small island. When Hunter arrives to his soon to be new home, he goes to a pub and meets the most gorgeous woman with red hair and emerald eyes. Little does he know, he will be seeing her a lot sooner than he planned. The heroine is perfect! Not just because she is beautiful but because she is real down to earth sexy woman. Realtor by day and a sassy sexy waitress by night for her family’s pub, she didn’t expect to see the handsome man that asked for her number this soon. She also didn’t expect to have to get him to hate a house that is perfect for him. Things may seem to go very fast, but the type of chemistry these two have and maturity, I was so happy to see it go this way. You get romance, SWOON, fun, danger, passion and heart! Oh and a very very SEXY ex fighter with arms of a god!

R E V I E W ➠ Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson


Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.
A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this.
She’d get ripped to shreds.
Most likely by me.
There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.
Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.
So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak.
He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss.
When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance.
But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.
One glance, and our hearts race.
One touch, and we’re aching for what we can’t have.
One night, and we’re falling fast.
Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong.
It doesn’t matter.
Eden Murphy is mine.

RELEASE DATE: August 30, 2021

Little Temptress. And I was just the fool who might get lost in her siren’s song.


“You are perfect, Trent. You’re perfect in your flaws. Perfect in your strengths. Maybe you believe you’re all wrong, that you don’t have anything to offer, but I can’t help but believe you’re perfect for me.”

NOT my first read by the author and I have read all of Amy’s books and am a HUGE HUGE fan! She is one of my perfect safe author’s that I would read anything from! Her writing is unique and captures the beauty from the pages!

Let’s get started with this beauty, first off I want to say that I couldn’t have more excited to get a new series from Amy but one of my favorite combo’s too! Trent & Eden were addictive…from page one! There was something so beautiful in all the broken that I couldn’t stop reading.

Story: Eden is a woman just trying to help her father keep his dream in hence hers as well. After her sister’s betrayal she will do anything to keep her life going, even if it means throwing herself into the lions den. That being Trent’s nightclub, the minute he walks in and spots her, he KNOWS she not only doesn’t belong there but looks like a dream. A bright dream he doesn’t deserve. After a little banter and the heroine showing her backbone, the hero is surprised but also intrigued. After all, she is something he wouldn’t even dream of trying to have. The heroine starts working at Trent’s club for the extra money, little did they both know fate had a big hand in this in all the ways. They may look different and have grown up differently, one light one dark…their souls were meant to be.

This story includes angst, passion, love, danger, hurt, laughter and HEART! I was ready so fast I needed to slow myself down. I loved everything about each character but especially Trent the SINGLE-DAD who would give anything to protect the ones he loves. His adorable little son, his brothers and the deep passionate love he has for Eden. It’s so beautiful, painful, sweet, romantic, sexy, dangerous…everything you need! I can not wait for more! I have a feeling this whole series will become my TOP 2021 MUST READs easily!

R E V I E W ➠ Gen Pop by Lani Lynn Vale

(Souls Chapel Revenants MC #6)


Hangry: adjective—feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry.
Sometimes, Crockett felt that in her soul.
And, of course, the one time that she’s being ‘irrationally angry’ would be the time that the hottest guy on the continent walked into her place of business dressed in prison orange.
She should’ve been afraid.
She should’ve taken one look at him and walked the other way.
But, she didn’t.
Crockett Archer, better known as a doormat extraordinaire, didn’t walk away from the people she knew needed her. She’d never been able to do it with a father that didn’t love her, and she wouldn’t be able to do it with a man that didn’t think he deserved a chance at love.
One look is all it takes for Zach Caruso to know that Crockett could be his.
All he would have to do is snap his fingers, and she’d fall right into the palm of his hand.
Which is why Zach turns around and walks far, far away.
He tries not to look back.
He tries to leave her be.
But then he sees how she’s treated by the people that are supposed to love her, and all cognitive thoughts seem to flee his rational brain.
One second, he’s running in the opposite direction. The next, he’s playing her knight in dingy armor.
God help her.

RELEASE DATE: August 10, 2021

Not my first time reading the author and I have read the previous books in this series. This one was not too much of a favorite to me but I still very much enjoyed it.

Crockett and Zach are one in a pot. After Zach got send to prison for in my eye doing something good…after getting out early his first trip is to a dinner for a first real meal. That’s where he meets Crockett, and what a meet…everyone in the dinner except the heroine was staring at the hero…because he was wearing his prison uniform still. Crockett, my heart goes out to her for all the abuse she is getting from her own family, her grandfather is the only good thing in her life…until Zach. That’s where I took a turn because the hero was ONE OF THE BEST HERO’s because of his heart and what he does and gives the heroine. I think the harsh treatment and the heroine letting herself be a doormat made it hard for me to fully get into it but truly it does happen in real life and just because I don’t understand it, it was a little different for me. I still enjoyed watching these two come together. I love Lani’s writing because it’s real life issues and the characters are always unique.

R E V I E W ➠ Beneath the Fallen Stars by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black


I’ve never had anyone look at me the way he looks at me, like I could be his whole world.
Ford is different from other guys. For starters, he doesn’t know about my troubled past—the one this small town won’t let me forget, no matter how hard I try. Being with him, I can be myself. Without judgment. Without pretending. He’s unlocked a part of me I wasn’t sure still existed.
Just as quickly as we find each other, it’s time to say goodbye. Ford might feel a world away, but reading his letters and sharing starry nights with him keeps us close until I can be back in his arms.
From the first moment I laid eyes on her, I knew I needed more time.
While on leave with my best friend from the Army, I finally meet his cousin, Shayne. She’s unexpected—in the best of ways. I quickly realize she could be exactly who I need her to be—my everything.
As long as my life belongs to the military, I can only offer her promises and distance. Maybe getting in involved while enlisted is a mistake, but I’m not ready to let her go. From afar, we find something neither of us was looking for, and it’s all possible beneath the fallen stars.


Not my first read by the ladies and I have been looking forward to this very much. To my fellow readers who have similar dislikes, this is a TOTALLY SAFE read. Very HEA and I enjoyed every page.

Hero and Heroine get a chance meet, and when they do it’s instant sparks. The heroine comes from a past where she never had a real mother figure but thankfully her Aunt and Uncle were there for her. She now works at the local pub, really just living day by day. After an incident in town left her always having to look over her shoulder, or hide in shame…she really never knew what she wanted. The Hero is a younger Army enlisted handsome, sweet and sexy man, who decides to go home with his best friend for a week on their 2 week home stay. He never thought that the heroine was a she yet alone the most beautiful woman he’s ever met. A little older than him but only by a couple years, he realized that the beauty is his buddy’s cousin. The instant he saw her, he couldn’t not pursue her. Wasn’t fair because he was only there for a week but he did it anyways. Their love came strong and their desire for life together even stronger. But the hero did have to go back and the heroine would be left behind. Heartbreak comes but this one was really heart breaking and I cried so so much. But their love for one another can conquer it all.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but this sweet HEA was a happy surprise. I hope we get more, like the Hero’s Best Friend and the Hero’s Sister!
