R E V I E W ➠ Kickstart my Heart by Lacey Black

(Burgers and Brew Crue #1)

There’s nothing better than a packed house on a Saturday night, and co-owning the hottest restaurant and bar in town with my best friends, isn’t so bad either. We put everything into Burgers and Brew. My job is to keep the alcohol moving and the patrons coming back for more. I won’t let anyone break my focus.
That was until I saw her.
As much as I try, I can’t fight it. Mallory makes me crave a future I never wanted for my own.
Now, I want it all.
When I started my new job at a local specialty burger restaurant, I wasn’t expecting to find a tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome distraction in the form of Walker Meyer. He’s one of the owners, which means hands off. Only problem, it’s a lot easier said than done.
Especially when he’s so good with my daughter.
I try to keep him at a distance, but he’s insistent, slowly breaking down every one of my walls. He’s fighting to convince me I can trust him with not only my heart, but my daughter’s too.
I pray he’s right.

RELEASE DATE: February 9, 2021

Not my first read by the author and I do love her writing style so when I saw something NEW coming, I jumped right in without even reading the blurb or anything. This author is definitely my one-click author.

I don’t know where to begin again because this turned into a FAVORITE real fast. I loved everything about the characters and the side characters. We have a single-mom to a adorable 3 year old and starting over, and a single-bachelor and co-owner of the most popular pub/bar that has it good, he is successful, handsome and every woman turns her head when he walks by. Their relationship is an insta-love but in the best way possible, there isn’t so much strain on the working together issue which I enjoyed, just flowed well. The heroine is smitten as much as the hero is with her, then he finds out she has a 3 year old adorable little girl and everything changes, she basically has him and the rest of the men wrapped around her little finger. It was really sweet to watch them together. Little bit of drama towards the end, which is expected…all in all it’s just very sweet, right and flowed well, loved every page, ENJOYED every page & I can’t wait for me. This is the type of book you re-read!

R E V I E W ➠ Until Cece by K.D. ROBICHAUX

“Never lose yourself while trying to hold on to someone who doesn’t care about losing you.”
 Advice I heard over the years while acquaintances had gone through breakups and divorce, but I never thought I’d one day be applying it to myself.
 The past decade spent being the perfect stay-at-home mom and doting housewife, I never pictured my husband coming home from work one night and admitting to having an affair.
 But without him and my place at home, who am I?
 With no college or work experience to speak of, what will I do?
 Step One: Call in reinforcements—my sister Mia.
 Step Two: Find a job to support me and my three little girls.
 Step Three: Start finding myself again.
 “The fastest way to get over someone is to get under someone else.”
 More advice I side-eyed over the years. My ex is the only man I’ve ever been with. The thought of being with someone else is both terrifying and… exciting.
 But that man should most definitely, a hundred percent certainly not be my savior, my real-life hero, my boss who took a chance on me at my all-time low.
 Rebounds are bad news. Everyone knows that.
 But Winston doesn’t feel like a rebound.
 He feels like home. He makes me feel things I’ve never even imagined before.
 It feels like our timing is just… off.
 Especially when I realize the ultra-delicious chef and bar-owner dad has baggage of his own.

Until Cece is part of the Aurora Rose Reynolds’ s Happily Ever Alpha World. If you loved Until Talon, then you will want to read Until Cece.

RELEASE DATE: February 19, 2020

I’m not even sure where to begin because I just want to say it all at once. Little background Until Cece is in association with Until Talon which happens to be a top favorite,  I say top because all of Auroras books are my favorite. That said, Cece is Mia’s Sister and ever since i read Until Talon I have been dying over and going Cece and Winston would get their story. It’s an unusual one because we already get so much of them in Until Talon. I want to touch on the fact that the story line lines up perfectly, and i couldn’t read fast enough to see what will happen. 

Cece is a mother of 3, devoted wife of 10 years… when her husband just blurs out that he slept with someone else, it comes to a shock to get but not get husband Mike. Unfortunately she has been making excuses in her life for Mike because well 3 kids is a lot to handle in a daily base. She was a homemaker and when everything fell apart, she had to start over at her age. 

Winston, oh where do I start with this hunk of AMAZINGness. I loved Winston from Until Talon and I knew he would be the knight in shinning armor that i imagined.  He’s been living with a problem if your will for many years now with no end in sight. When he meets Cece it’s love at first sight for sure. These two truly belong together, and I loved their interactions in every page. 

Cece going through a separation/divorce and Winston trying to do his best not to lose it all even though he wants to buy Cece would never allow that… there’s so much I want to give out but won’t. It’s quiet a rude with taking. The stolen looks, the chemistry, the first kiss, the need, passion, the swoon, the kids…everything flowed so well together. I highly recommend reading Until Talon then diving into this, I am so happy that this turned out to be SO AMAZING l was I hoping would be. This is the second time I’ve read K.D. Robichaux in relations to the Aurora world and I LOVE now both!

R E V I E W ➠ Still Standing by Kristen Ashley

(Wild West MC #1)

When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal.
All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them.
And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC.
Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean.
She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand.
But does he?
Welcome to the first novel in the Wild West MC series which will tell the stories of the brothers of the Aces High MC, the Resurrection MC, and the Chaos MC…and the women who love them.

RELEASE DATE: February 2, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and I AM A HUGE HUGE HUGE FAN of Kristen Ashley, so yes I have read and re-read all her books over the years and YES they still feel new to me each time! So whoever asked for this style enough or WHATever got her to write this, BEWARE: THIS IS A OG KA (Original Kristen Ashley) and Beware in the best way possible because if you missed her MC romance, ooooh boy you’re in for a ride because I don’t even know myself how to express my review without giving it all to you but I will do my best!

I want to start with saying that this is a deja vu of Motorcycle Man Tyra and Kane (if you haven’t read that yet you won’t get it but basically it happens to be one of my absolute favorite books!) So the ladies whoa re big fans and have read her books you’re in for a beautiful treat. It actually took me back to the good ol’ days but also gave it something new. Even though it reminded me a lot of that book, it was new in it’s own and I will happily say that a couple past characters make an appearance. Let’s get into it.

Buck and Clara, what a duo, we have Buck who is the head of Aces High Motorcycle Club and Clara who is a woman who came form nothing, trying to make ends meets. Their actual meet started off right away, when Clara walks into Buck’s club to deliver a message. That’s when the fun starts because Buck is equally sharp and smart like Tack and this really brought back the butterfly-in-tummy feels. Like I said it jumps right into, it’s an adventure from the beginning to the end. Buck is a man’s man, single dad, fucked up past, fucked up present but a man who acts on his emotions. Clara is a woman that had it amazing, had someone amazing, until the day she did not. Shy, vulnerable but so strong librarian-looking woman meets tough biker boss. Where there is a Club there are club parties and there are bunnies, I am not going to get into that except to say that I was super super mad at Buck for a little while in the book that’s all I am saying (and will add that not everything is as it seems) I loved it all, the angst, the action, the ROMANCE it was really really sweet because nothing to me is sweeter than a MC’s romance!

*I want to touch on triggers because to me they may not have been significant but I know there is a lot of hurt in the world and some of the scenes and actions taken may be triggers for someone. If you’ve never read KA this’ll be a little shocking if you’re not in the understanding of the style and type. But if you’ve read KA well this also might be a little shocking slightly, you’ll definitely be defensive for the heroine. With understanding and reasoning but I was a’ taken back just a little.

R E V I E W ➠ The Invitation by Vi Keeland

The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city.
Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts.
I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.
Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail.
Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed.
Or so I thought.
Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.
Take one guess who found it?
This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

RELEASE DATE: January 18, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is a top 10 favorite and one of my early reads back in the day when I started reading romance. And yes I have read all of her books! This slow burn was worth the wait!

I don’t want to give out too much after realizing what the Blurb gives out, but will say that that is just the beginning. Stella is in a pickle, so a wedding crash is nor would ever be on her radar but her best friend has other plans. Live a little, it’ll be fun they said. Well when your lies get caught and you realize that the person who caught you is the Bride’s brother, things get interesting.
-Stella is a unique heroine, I won’t lie I fell in love with her form the beginning and just loved her. She was unique, quirky, out there, different, sweet soooo sweet. Her little stories, her little hobby, her profession…it just fit so well with her and I loved it. I especially loved her little chocolates she carried around to give out because it can make people happy even for a little.
-Hudson: I had a bone to pick with him for a little then when I found out why I forgave him but was still holding a small grudge against him. When he met Stella at the wedding before the lie and all the truth coming out, they had a moment, a really sweet moment and that’s when I fell in love with them both. He was not only handsome, sexy, smart and just a man who was burned in the worst way, common, but still painful. He did not harbor any hate, he really focused his life on other important things.

That said, I really want to emphasize that this is a SLOW BURN and the moments of sexy scenes are about 90% sizzling and sweet. There isn’t a lot of it but worth the wait. This is more of a story that flows so well together and is beautiful. Every detail, every scene…just plain beautiful. This is my 2nd 2021 MUST READ list item!

R E V I E W ➠ Repeat Offender by Lani Lynn Vale

(Souls Chapel Revenants MC #1)

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.
But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes.
Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.
One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.
Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.
The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.
The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.
First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating.
Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to.
Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.
Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned. She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud. Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal. At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him! Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

RELEASE DATE: January 12, 2021

The mayor was beating the crap out of someone, and my nipples were pebbled!


Not my first read by the author, she has been a favorite and I have read a great amount of her books. I was so excited for this one because well she wasn’t going to give us this story and a MC from Lani was everything I needed!

I don’t know where to begin, it was all so fantastic. Yes this is MC but with a twist, because the hero Lynnwood is the new mayor. Yeah, Lani gave us a hero that is MC hard, rugged, dangerous with the combo of a CEO Suit Wearing sexy head over heels man! I was drooling over the hero the whole time. I really LOVED the heroine too, she was different (a Lani typical) but in the best way, quirky, fun, her own woman and realistic! Everything about this was realistic and not dragged out, things occurred that maybe not fully happen in real life but better. These two meet officially in a little but of a pickle, when Six was just minding her own business and Lynn well being what he is best, ruthless.

There is romance with a sexy sexy sexy twist. I mean I was fanning myself with the sex scenes, naughty, dirty and sexy! Their love may have been coming fast but neither of them realized how fast, until tragedy strikes and Lynn is faced with a life or death, makes a man realize what he has and needs! I loved their relationship because Lynn accepted Six’s quirky weird ways, saying and actions without hesitation. There are twist and turns in this one but a gripping read that will have you staying up until 1am to finish it! CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE! P.S. age gap romance, and beware timeline might be little here and there but there is a reason for that!
