R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Beefcake by Krista Sandor

(Nanny Love Match #3)


The world knows Erasmus Cress as a British boxing champion and a single dad, but what they don’t know is that he’s also an O thief. Yep, that O. The OMG, don’t stop, please, don’t stop, O.
The infuriating beefcake rendered yoga instructor Libby Lamb an off-balance O-deprived mess with one arrogant glance, which turns out to be an occupational hazard when her job is to remain calm, cool, and collected.
She never expected to become the boxer’s nanny, but she’s got bills to pay and brothers to support. Not to mention, the beefcake’s ripped physique might be the key to reclaiming her O and restoring her inner peace.
Here’s the deal. She’s out of options, and so is he.
He’s training for the fight of his life, and he needs someone to care for his son.
He says he doesn’t do relationships. But when their eyes meet, and the gloves come off, there’s no denying his yang is hot for her yin.
They clash at every turn, but Erasmus soon learns that the fight that matters the most might not be the one in the boxing ring. When it’s all on the line, the true battle will be the fight for Libby’s heart.


Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous books in the series. This one I was excited about and it’s a big boy! In all honestly I don’t think it needed a couple of scenes in the book, they were slow for me so it dragged a bit. Other than that there is a lot of action and scenes happening here, lot’s of side characters and life happening. It’s part for me where the ‘romance’ got lost and I was clinging to that little bit when it was between the H&H. It was still enjoyable to read, took me a couple of full days to read & am looking forward to the next one.

This is a heavy rom-com mixed with enemy-to, friends-to, single dad, alpha hero and very expressive out there heroine. I enjoyed the hero & heroine, each in it’s own. I had a few dislikes to the heroine only because she was heavy on the chi and the yoga, it went a little too much into detail for me on that. Laughed out loud many times in the book. The hero is a boxer who is in need of a nanny, has a chip on his shoulder and is a big man with an even bigger heart. They are paired very well, also the hero’s little son is the sweetest and just everything flowed so well. Even if the romance was missing the sizzle was there and worth the wait! I can’t wait for more in this series and hope to go din my next lifetime I get to have this Hero in real life please. Krista make it happen please & thank you!

R E V I E W ➠ Twisted Hate by Ana Huang

(Twisted #3)


He hates her…almost as much as he wants her.
Gorgeous, cocky, and fast on his way to becoming a hotshot doctor, Josh Chen has never met a woman he couldn’t charm—except for Jules f**king Ambrose.
The beautiful redhead has been a thorn in his side since they met, but she also consumes his thoughts in a way no woman ever has.
When their animosity explodes into one unforgettable night, he proposes a solution that’ll get her out of his system once and for all: an enemies with benefits arrangement with simple rules.
No jealousy.
No strings attached.
And absolutely no falling in love.
Outgoing and ambitious, Jules Ambrose is a former party girl who’s focused on one thing: passing the attorney’s bar exam.
The last thing she needs is to get involved with a doctor who puts the SUFFER in insufferable…no matter how good-looking he is.
But the more she gets to know him, the more she realizes there’s more than meets the eye to the man she’s hated for so long.
Her best friend’s brother.
Her nemesis.
And her only salvation.
Theirs is a match made in hell, and when the demons from their past catch up with them, they’re faced with truths that could either save them …or destroy everything they’ve worked for.

Twisted Hate is a steamy enemies with benefits/enemies to lovers romance. It’s book three in the Twisted series but can be read as a standalone.

RELEASE DATE: January 27, 2022

Not my first read by the author & not my last. I have read the other 2 books in this series and let’s just say they both ended up on my TOP MUST READ list! This one was a little different for me, I felt like the author leaned more towards the younger gen read (I don’t really know how to explain this to anyone aside from it felt more NA YA to me) Don’t get me wrong, it was still steamy and alpha just different form the first two books.

This is a heavy side of enemy-to style and while I do love that trope it felt very much the whole time in this. I think what I just couldn’t connect with, with this trope in this book is the ‘make him or her jealous’ styles. But this is all person preferences for me of course. Other than that, this book was dynamic, long and satisfying. I do have to say that I LOVED the hero more than the heroine, they really fit well together but at times Jules felt very over-powering to me. The hero has the biggest heart and can be rough in the right places and sweet in all the rest. Their banter was fun to interact with also. GREAT ADDITION TO THE SERIES!

R E V I E W ➠ Tripped by Love by LJ Evans


He’s a broody bodyguard with secrets he can’t share.
She’s a busy single mom with a restaurant to run.
They’re just friends until a little white lie changes everything.

Marco Hernandez is the somber trainer here only to bend my body into shape, but when the perfectly sculpted man holds my son in his arms and smiles, I’m a goner. Weak legs. Pounding veins. Too bad as my brother’s bodyguard, he’ll never look at me the way I crave. Too bad I don’t have the time between the café and my baby boy to persuade him otherwise.
Cassidy O’Neil has looked like an angel from the moment I met her…an angel I can’t touch. Not only because she’s my boss’s sister but because I’m still trying to redeem myself for the sins of my past. The tantalizing mirage of “family” she represents will remain just that―a dream-like apparition.
Until her ex returns trying to claim the son he never wanted, and I’m the one who shows him the door. The lie that falls from my lips while trying to protect her threatens the tenacious balance we’ve established.
Once it’s Cassidy’s heart on the line, how will I defend her? Especially if I’m the one putting it at risk.

Inspired by Ingrid Andress’s “We’re Not Friends,” this achingly tender, slow-burn, small-town romance from award-winning author LJ Evans has loveable characters, deep emotions, and a windy path to creating a family.


Not new to me author. I have read a few other books by her and enjoyed them. I was excited to get this one, wanted to see how this relationship would play out them being more of friends than.

Hero is broken. He is the kindest man, protecting everyone and helping when he can. The heroine is the sweetest and well has wanted the hero for a very long time but never thought the same feelings would be coming from him. This is a very slow burn just to warn you, it’s sweet, homey feel, fun, laughter, broken souls and amazing side characters that really bring in the story. AAAAAND the hero calls the heroine Angel (yes i know a lot of hero’s do) but this is too sweet and you’ll see why. This is a longer read and I am not going to be giving out a lot because I could go on and go for pages about this. Imagine wanting someone but only to sabotage yourself when getting close to what you want. It’s a complicated story and I’d say that you can totally read this as a standalone. Be ware you’ll get hooked and then want to go back and read all of the author’s other books! There is a lot of feelings and heart in this story not just between H&H, but just a feeling of being part of a world. The author does a great job bringing you in and describing the scenes so they are playing like a movie in your head. Thank you to the author for providing me with a ARC and as always I keep my review’s honest. I look forward to reading more by you!

R E V I E W ➠ Mine to Keep by Kennedy L. Mitchell

(Protection #4)


An unlikely friendship, a stalking ex, and a serial killer on the loose.
FBI profiler Charlie Bekham prides himself on three unique talents: hacking any database, making women swoon with a cocky smirk, and letting no one see the desperate man buried deep. When a string of murders in Louisville, KY, requires extra help, he’s forced to partner with the brilliant yet shy Special Agent Rhyan Riggs to hunt the killer. Long nights of working the case fan the growing attraction between them, making Charlie question if “just friends” is enough.
Special Agent Rhyan Riggs is running from her past—a narcissistic ex, to be exact. Determined to move on from the terrible breakup, she focuses solely on her career… until him. Special Agent Charlie Bekham. Covered in tattoos, cocky as hell, and bad-boy hot, he’s exactly the type she should avoid at all costs but can’t seem to stay away from.
With more victims and at a dead end, Rhyan does the unthinkable—she puts herself in the killer’s sights. When the killer takes the bait and disappears with the woman Charlie’s fallen for, can he piece together the remaining clues before Rhyan becomes the next body found?

Mine to Keep is the fourth book in the interconnected standalone Protection Series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but because of character crossover, reading from book 1, Mine to Protect, is suggested. Due to foul language, discussion of emotional abuse, mention of suicide, and detailed intimate scenes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

RELEASE DATE: December 13, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the previous books in this series.

Special Agent Rhyan Riggs is a very strong heroine that looks at herself a lot harder than needed to. She is definitely learning on how to forgive herself and love herself more. That’s my favorite part about all this, aside form the fact that the hero is SWOONY over the top in the best way and is a patient man when it comes to our heroine. They really seem different but are very much alike and fit so well together! I think what I loved is how the hero loved the heroine for all her quirks.

I am not a fan of work-romance anymore, I think a heavy doze of it it gets a little too much for me. This is a heavy doze of action and suspense, and as much as I love it from this author, it’s been a personal struggle to keep up with that trope type. This has nothing to do with the writing because the author is AMAZING at suspense. That said, I enjoyed the connection these two characters made, the road to it, and all the in between like the banter and funny you get. I won’t get too much into it because it involved the side characters (which by the way I also enjoyed very much).

R E V I E W ➠ Covert Vengeance by Kennedy L. Mitchell

(SEALs and CIA #2)


He’s desperate for revenge… and her.
Navy SEAL Tony “Flakes” Hackenbreg’s career and sanity ride on the upcoming mission to hunt and capture a known ARMs dealer. Being forced to partner with the dangerously beautiful CIA agent Elliot Smith is the last thing he wants or needs. With her love for explosives, sassy mouth, and a body most men would kill for, Elliot is everything he never knew he needed. Nights and days forced together the two shift from enemies to partners before morphing into a sizzling attraction that neither try to resist. But keeping Elliot protected during the covert mission proves to be the hardest challenge of Tony’s career.
She’s willing to kill anyone who stands in her way… except the one SEAL whose commands she’s eager to obey.
Elliot Smith’s last operation to Colombia cost her everything: her flawless mission reputation with the CIA, her partner, and nearly her own life. With vengeance on her mind, she doesn’t want or need a mouthy, dominant SEAL monitoring her every move like an overprotective babysitter. But when he sneaks past her defenses, making her open up about her past and hopes of a future, Elliot wonders if she’s finally met her equal.
When tension turns to passion in the middle of a covert mission they miss the signs of a trap, putting Elliot’s life in the evil hands of their shared enemy. Can Tony find her before the ARMs dealer slips away with the only woman he’s ever loved or will Elliot be lost for good?
Covert Vengeance is a standalone, no cliffhanger, SEAL romantic suspense novel. Each book in the SEALs and CIA Series can be enjoyed on their own; however, because of character crossover, reading the series in order is recommended. This series is suggested for mature readers due to detailed intimate scenes, discussion of abuse, violence, and foul language.

RELEASE DATE: November 19, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and I have not read Book #1 in this series. Mainly because I am a 50/50 on suspense action books. I have read Kennedy before and I have enjoyed her style and writing, and when I say she is really good at suspense I MEAN IT! I think for me not just with her books but in general with that is I usually miss the romance the overly-top just plain romance and Kennedy has also done a great job incorporate that into a lot of her suspense books but this one I was just missing it more I think. The action overtook it for me. But that’s just my personal preferences. Over all the suspense, action, characters in this was on point.

In the beginning I was confused on who the hero was going to be only because of the circumstances, which is why I DMed the author asking freaking out hehe that said once I got to the point of what was really going on in the beginning my heart broke a little for all of them. SEAL Tony Hackenbreg and CIA agent Elliot Smith are both strong characters and together it was a wild and real journey is the best I can describe this without giving too too much away. One thing I will say was wow besides the writing style and words is the remarkable research done on military and everything around and in between. You can truly see that the author went thoroughly on details. These two characters join forces and the story that unfolds is a thrill!

Romantic comedy screenwriter, Lily Dunn, watches her life go from happily ever after to crappily ever after when she gets dumped on live television.
Facing her overprotective family at her cousin’s wedding is not ideal. They think she’s not cut out for cutthroat Hollywood. How can she prove she’s moved on? Pretend to have a new man, of course. The only rule is: keep it fake.
But the chemistry with her former high school crush burns hotter than an open fire. Can two bruised and battered hearts find the kind of love that only happens in the movies?


NEW to me authors. I got to be honest as always and say that I do not remember why I requested for this ARC, I must have been in the mood but I am glad because I really enjoyed these two sweet short stories. The other things that I kind of messed up on is the fact that I did not read any of these author’s original books I THINK I am not sure though if these are on it’s own stories or from previous characters, so I was wondering the whole time about that.

4 STARS -> WEDDING WONDERLAND by Samantha Chase: This one was a very themed and super cute story about the Hero & Heroine and the time of the wedding. The groom has some strong words on waiting and the bride wants to make her groom happy but also is stressed about planning a wedding so soon. What follows is a fun adventure on two souls that are meant to be and all the obstacles they have to overcome to get their official happily every after.

5 STARS -> DESTINED FOR FOREVER by Stefanie London now this one took my attention from the start, I liked the author’s writing style and everything. The characters were fun to read and complex enough to keep my attention. The story line is a common one because the heroine just got broken up with and is going to her cousins wedding and the hero is her long time from childhood crush attending the same wedding, they make a pack during the flight and what follows is a sweet, snowy, Christmas feel romance filled with cute scenes, romance, laughter, heartache, realness and THE FIRST KISS *swoon*

R E V I E W ➠ Beautifully Broke Redemption by Catherine Cowles


She’s hiding secrets.
For Anna, keeping her deepest scars hidden from the world has always been a necessity—from the bruises of her childhood to the mistake that nearly cost her everything. To keep herself safe, she must keep everyone around her at a distance—especially the man who has tempted her since the moment they met.
His demons are taunting him.
Mason has done his best to bury the past by achieving more than he ever thought possible. But even with all of his success, his life feels empty.
When tragedy strikes, Anna is left fighting to protect the only family she has left. And Mason will do anything to keep her and her loved ones safe—even if that means the ring of wedding bells.
But as a new spark ignites between them, someone is watching.
And they’ll do whatever it takes to snuff out that light for good.


Not my first read by the author and I have read some of the other books in this series. This one I was nervous for because I kind of hand an idea what was coming. It was very intense and action packed with scenes, I think I was missing the romance + heat a little in this one. Under the circumstances of the story I do understand it but that’s just my personal thought on it.

The hero here is the sweetest man alive, he is generous, smart, sexy, handsome and just all around the best guy can be. The heroine is a woman that comes with a past that’s tainted and complicated. These two have actually known each other for a couple years before anything proceeded. The heroine is the ‘big boss’ at the safe house in town and the hero happens to volunteer there on top of his actual job. When a situation occurs, the hero does not hesitate to be there for the heroine. Now this is where it gets complicated I think, because the heroine past is really a rather dark one (not that the hero’s isn’t. they are equally both tainted in their own color) but hers happens to come up from the dark and try to not only ruin the life she has build but also take away people who mean the world to her. A offer happens to slightly save the situation until everything and I mean everything goes against them, will they be able to stick it through or will their own personal darkness ruin it all?

I really think that this was something I was not expecting, the feelings it brought out in me, the story over all. As much as I was fascinated, I also wanted to throw things, be angry with them, smile and feel the first real kiss…I was all over with my emotions in the best way of course. I will be going back to see which ones I have not read in the series and definitely read them.

R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Hothead by Krista Sandor


Charlotte Ames despises hotheads. You know the type. The growly, perma-scowling bully who blows his top at the slightest inconvenience. And her former boss, Top Chef Mitch Elliott, is the king of all hotheads.
How big of a jerk is he? Big enough to make her hurl a salad at the guy.
Those vegetables didn’t ask to be strewn across the floor. But Mitch deserved it!
Is he devastatingly handsome when he loses his cool? Could his stormy blue eyes, flashing with passion, melt the panties right off a gal? That would be a yes. Still, she can’t stand him. And she’d thought she’d seen the last of the culinary creep.
She was wrong.
On the cusp of eviction and with five bucks to her name, she needs a job.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make some real cash.
Sounds great, right? Wrong again!
The universe has one messed-up sense of humor. When she wakes up after a margarita bender and learns she’s become the hothead’s nanny, life goes topsy-turvy! But when the nanny dust settles, she sees another side of the man. A man who might be more than a hothead. A man who gazes at her with such intensity, she can barely keep from combusting.
Don’t fall for the hotheaded chef.
Her head knows what to do. If only she could convince her heart.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it get too hot in the kitchen for the nanny and the hothead?

RELEASE DATE: October 14, 2021

Not my first read by the author and not last, I have officially read every single book she has put out and this series is one that you will get hooked on to fast!

This was such a fun book to read, I think I laughed more and swooned and worried…all in one. Krista really brought it with this book but also this series! Mitch was def a hothead and with all the sudden happenings, and him becoming a single parent fast he needs help. In comes Charlotte to the rescue, but she has to bargain a lot more than a babysitting job. The heroine here is actually a aspiring photographer and is hoping to get an in with a company and a job she can call her career. What I love about the heroine is that not only is she good hearted and loved Oscar but she also reaches the hero how to be a family and have a bond with his son. This is a fun, exciting, laugh out loud, romantic, swoony and beautiful story!

R E V I E W ➠ To Touch You by Bella J.


I wasn’t supposed to kiss a stranger. But I did.
I definitely wasn’t supposed to like it. But I did.
And now I’m all caught up in the excitement of it.
The thrill and the anticipation of experiencing it again…with him.
Noah Alexander.
But there’s a whole list of reasons I should stay away from him,
One – he works for my father.
Two – he’s much older than I am.
Three – he told me to.
Yet there’s only one reason I shouldn’t… because I don’t want to.
I’m addicted to the fire that burns between us whenever we’re close. I’m addicted to the way he looks at me as if he desires and hates me at the same time. Call me a masochist, but the sound of his voice when he tells me all the things he wants to do to me right before he asks me to leave—it’s thrilling.
No matter how many times he warns that he’ll hurt me, I can’t stay away.
I won’t. 


Not my first read by the author, she is still a little NEW to me so I am getting used to the style. This is most def a DARK ROMANCE with twists. Also this is a cliffy in which I did not pay attention or bother to research so it was a surprise cliffy to me. I don’t usually mind them but they are not my favorite and I should have known since this author is known for them.

Before I get into the the rest I want to call out the heroine and say that it took me a while to get used to her. She is 20 and immature at that age on certain scenes and action, I was hoping for a more stronger heroine in a sense of acting older than her age but it did work out in it’s own. Just had a hard time feeling her fully. She is very verbal, foul mouth and acts tough that might have played a part that annoyed me about her.

To me this was a dark romance with a twist and the twist being that it could very well be a not dark romance just a age-gap steamy romance, but the circumstances made it dark. You wouldn’t put a construction worker as a dark hero but boy was he dark. His past was equally exciting as hurtful. I really don’t want to give out too much but will say key words like ‘kink & bdsm fire hot sex’ that’s all about that. There is a lot to this and I can’t wait to read the rest and hope they get a happy ending a delicious romantic sexy ending that is because these two together are CHEMISTRY OVERLOAD loved loved loved them together! It’s got danger, angst, spice and realness to it, again can’t wait to read more of these two!

R E V I E W ➠ Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn

(Last Man Standing #1)


Top three lies about mama’s boys:
1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.
2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.
3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.
Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

RELEASE DATE: September 27, 2021

It’s been a minute since I’ve truly dived into a book by this author, she is not NEW to me but it’s been a while. This is a new series and I just knew I had to get on board. Both the blurb & cover is what caught my eye!

Fiona and Dixon were so down to earth real type of characters I forgot I was reading but felt more like I was living the story. When a bet is set Dixon the hero is determined to be the ‘last man standing’ well little did he know fate had other plans and those plans are called Fiona in a form of beautiful, smart and funny! The chemistry between these two, the banter, the romance, the looks…everything just flowed to right and so smooth! I loved watching them go around one another, stick to their guns and also fall for…that was the sweetest and just purest moment.

R E V I E W ➠ Inmate of The Month by Lani Lynn Vale

(Souls Chapel Revenants MC #7)


A porn video changed his life.
One second, he has an ex with an ax to grind, and the next, he’s internet famous—and definitely not in a good way. In an, it’ll ruin your career, kind of way.
Only, Laric didn’t know that he was internet famous.
Not until a black-haired beauty walks into his life, and stumbles over every word that she says because all she can picture is him doing the unthinkable for the world to see.
Sadly, that’s not the only thing wrong in his life. His world is messed up, and he likes it that way.
There’s no room for a woman that wants to fix him.
Because fixing requires intimacy, and intimacy isn’t something that Laric does. Not after the life that he’s lived, and the things he’s done to survive. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that he’s a felon, and he has no regrets about how he got that title.
The last thing he needs in his life is a woman that has her head in the clouds and thinks this world is made of butterflies and confetti.
However, Catori isn’t who she seems.
The day she meets tall, dark, and handsome, he saves her life. And then never leaves—though not for his lack of trying.
Not that she’s complaining about the way they’re thrown together, time after time. She’s more than willing to have a man like Laric around. Mostly because she’s already seen the good in him that he refuses to admit that’s there.
He may be a biker that does questionable things, but in her heart, she knows that he does those bad things for good reasons. And she’s not about to throw away the chance at happiness just because he thinks he knows what’s best for her.
Plot twist: she knows what’s best for her. And that’s him.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2021

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the books before in this series! I must say this one was intense, I was hanging on the seat of each page!

The hero in this is a ex-con who was at the right place at the right time. Or so he thought, when there are shots fired he springs into action. The heroine is really fun, outgoing and beautiful. When she watched something for her best friend, it turns out to be the same man that not only occupies her dreams but now is right in front of her. What happens when a heroine sees the hero in a uncompromised intimate way but the hero doesn’t even have a clue what’s going on? Well a whirlpool of fun, danger, smiles, laughter, passion and love!

R E V I E W ➠ Perfect Secret by Molly McLain

(Mason Creek #12)


A fake relationship with a sexy cowboy in a small town is never a good idea…
After high school, my plan was to leave the small town of Mason Creek and never look back. I thought I’d work my way through college while my long-time, bull rider boyfriend chased his rodeo dreams and took me along for the ride.
My own dreams of becoming his publicist and living the high life together on the ABR circuit were crushed when it became clear that my eight seconds was up. The buckle bunnies were suddenly more appealing than the girl with her nose buried in the books.
I’ve sworn off men, especially cowboys and bull riders.
That is, until I walk in on one in my shower, naked, wet, and built like he could break my heart… and my bed.
The rodeo has been my whole world, and all it took was one false accusation to bring it crumbling down. I cleared my name, but the organization I’ve given my life and my body to for the past seven years doesn’t give a damn. They don’t want the drama and right now they don’t want me.
That’s how I ended up in Mason Creek, hiding from the cameras while the dust settles and I can reclaim my reputation and my rank in the ABR. The last thing I need is to get messed up with a local girl, especially one who hates cowboys–bull riders in particular.
Our relationship may be just for show, but I see the opportunity for what it is…The chance to keep my secret a little longer and prove to Alana that maybe her problem with bull riders is simple…
She hasn’t ridden the right one yet.

NEW to me author and books. I have read many in this series, and have been looking forward to this one!

What a way to end the series. I LOVED Holden so much, who wouldn’t with a hot, sexy, smart and SWOONY hero but I really enjoyed him as a character. Alana was a different character for me only because this is a new to me author so I had to adjust, but I did get to liking her pretty fast. She’s got spunk and is funny and sweet! I did really love them together, fake or not their chemistry was SIZZLING. I honestly at one point forgot who Holden is to begin with then I had to prepare myself once it all cones out. So the mystery to the heroine and secrets of the story, had me on the edge.

I can’t get over how much I started loving the H&H after I got more connected with them, I loved their chemistry I loved how the hero calls her ‘darling’ the hero was most deff SWOONY! I am sad to see this fun series go but will be reading more by the author!

R E V I E W ➠ Hard to Love by K. Bromberg

(Play Hard #5)


He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly.
Finn Sanderson.
Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move.
Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little?
But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call.
Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan?
Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning.
Stevie Lancaster.
Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem.
The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble.
But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye.
Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

“For the record,” he growls.
“I wasn’t quitting on you. I was saving you from me.”

Not my first read by the author, I have read the previous series books. I am always honest and I have to say that the first one in this series I enjoyed but the rest after including this, just was not my jam.

The final instalment of the series and was it one. Finn Sanderson and Stevie Lancaster are some amazing characters with their own faults and good. Fin is a successful. handsome and sexy agent. Stevie is well aside from beautiful she really is just in the downs. She lost her father and her career is hanging on by a thread, it’s a difficult time for her in life. In comes Fin to save the day. This book was actually really emotional, aside from everything I got hooked because KB really knows how to write words that hit you in the feels. Needles to say these two definitely walk the fine line of pleasure and business and well sometimes you have to bet it all or nothing!

R E V I E W ➠ Beat by Beat by Kaylee Ryan

(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!
