R E V I E W ➠ Reckless Memories by Catherine Cowles


I loved him before I knew what the word meant.
From skinned knees to first dates and everything in between.
But he was never mine to love.
I settled for friendship, even though I always wanted more.
That was before.
Before he ripped my world apart and didn’t bother sticking around to help me pick up the pieces.
I knit every last shred back together all on my own.
And I’ve all but forgotten his name.
Now, he’s back, and everything is torn apart once more.
But he’s not the only one doing the tearing this time.
And there might be no stopping the person who has it out for us both.

I’d miss her like a lost limb, ghost pains and longing for something that no longer existed plaguing me daily.

Not my first read by the author, she is a new-ish author to me. I have read one previous book by author and LOVED IT! So this I was so excited about since it’s also a new book and series! That said I am always honest in my review’s even when it’s something that I dislike to read or about the characters, the issue I had with this was and AGAIN this is how I feel about that type of style and situation…I can’t even explain/express it fully because I don’t want to ruin the book, but I don’t very much like the idea of the hero belonging to someone else, close or not. That’s as far as I am able to go because I don’t do spoilers but I had to get that off my chest because it’s just something that I dislike to read or even think about, so personal preference. That also said, it did not ruin the book for me, after I got over my little dislike in every book i’d have read, I absolutely couldn’t get enough of the story line and everything that was happening.

This story really tugs at your heart strings…I had a little bit of issue getting over a tiny little bump at the beginning but aside form that I really was not ready for what was to come. This author has a way with words that you don’t feel like you’re reading but it’s just happening. There is a lot of slow-burning angst here that will keep you on your toes. It’s full of heart and emotion, at times funny, the banter and tension…and SWEET slow burning sensation!!!! And in the end I CAN’T WAIT for more in the series!!

R E V I E W ➠ Unforgettable by Melanie Harlow

Back then, I had it all.
Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.
(And believe me, I knew how to score.)
My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.
Point is, I was invincible.
Until one day I wasn’t.
After tanking my career—during the World Series, no less—the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm.
So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.
Then I run into April Sawyer.
In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her—the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye.
It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around—and I don’t want it to end.
But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.

RELEASE DATE: May 4, 2020

First of, I can;t believe this is THE LAST BOOK in the series *crying* noooo! Also I have read almost all of the author’s books including every one in this series! Still crying because there won’t be anymore, but what an ENDING! *still crying*

First off the hero is Sadie’s big brother, our heroine April used to babysit Sadie back in high school where she also tutored the hero, so they all have history. Now I do not want to spoil any part of this story because it’s rather important and big for the conclusion of this series. If you’ve read the whole series you MIGHT get an idea, but I gotta say I did not expect that ending…and can we talk about that before all? WHY DID IT HAVE TO END?! Ugh, makes me want to re-read the whole series now!

That said, this is something sweet…dark but sweet. I loved April in the previous series book when she’s around and mentioned and so I did not expect anything less of a BANG for her book than this. Things aren’t as they see, watch out for slight curves and grab a couple tissues you might need them at a time or two. It just felt HONEST, like relatable and just real. I am so happy I had the chance to review this, and really wish there was more!!

R E V I E W ➠ A Secret for A Secret by Helena Hunting


My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars.
Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.
I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.
Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.
She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.
Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.
And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.

RELEASE DATE: May 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author (she is one of my favorites) and I have read all the previous books in this series which I was in love with every single one of them!! So, you can say I was a bit excited for this one also!

Well this was a pleasant surprise,  I wont lie and say that a little into it I though: oh, this is kind of a familiar trope and story line…but then I got to know King & Queenie…wow these two couldn’t be any more polar opposite. While King is the level headed, smart, concentrated and conservative type…Queenie is the rebel, act first think later, beautiful and fun woman. They came together…wait for it, NOT in a night of heat and passion…why you ask? well, if you asked the hero and heroine, THEY wouldn’t be able to recall all of it themselves. There is something about Ryan (King) Kingston that moved me, in all the funny and sexy ways. He comes off different, proper but naughty and yet still alpha and protective…you can’t not love him, honestly. Now Queenie, she is definitely reckless, but I was not prepared for that bomb. This is not a story line to take for granted, i was wowed the whole rest of the time and couldn’t get enough of it. Not your typical hockey romance with a not typical hero, you’ll love even if he’s a bit quirky.

R E V I E W ➠ Working For It by BJ Harvey

(Cook Brothers #5)

It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming:
“I’m pregnant.”
Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn’t need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him.
Career-focused Gilly never imagined she’d be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she’s been looking for has been in her bed all along.
If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park…right?
Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. Working For It is Ezra Baker’s story.

RELEASE DATE: May 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author & I have read all the books in this series so I am familiar with the crew and writing style of course. I am a forever fan of BJ…she really writes sweet, sexy and funny books! This one was romantic on a whole new level!

Ezra has got to be one of my favorites in this series, I knew we’d get something else form him from the previous books but my gosh did I fall in love with him…actually with Gilli as well…not only is she strong, independent and beautiful but has the biggest heart and isn’t afraid to show her emotions. Ez is a sweetheart but in a alpha sexy way, I really REALLY LOVED HIM! This has a mixture of fun, surprise, sexy and let’s not forget this whole series has a lot of rom-com and this did not disappoint it. You get to watch two people navigate something that could have gone differently but they both chose the right path for themselves…now the question is can they overcome everything being thrown in at once?!

Not my first read by the author & I have read every single book she wrote! I was excited to see something something from Krista on a book-let like this. The first few pages alone were SWEET & exciting!

This was a shorter but oh so sweeter read! I wasn’t sure what to expect but did see it coming, just not the way it played out. Here we have a heroine that runs into some bad luck….most her life, all because of a curse. And a hero that promised he’d never let himself feel again. But there is a huge twist, I can’t say because well spoiler free and all but these two may have a lot more in common than they think. It’s bitter sweet for the hero once he finds out and everything then will seem small co pared to the bigger picture.

R E V I E W ➠ Blowback by Monica James

(The Monsters Within Duet #2)

This was supposed to be simple. Vengeance was mine. But I should know by now that nothing in life is easy.
My endgame has changed all because I met someone who wishes I was dead. Yet her hatred is the only thing saving her from The Big Bad. My lies protect her, so the harder she hates, the safer she is.
The thing about love and hate—it skates a very thin line. I need to stay away. It’s better for everyone if I do. But fighting this is like fighting nature.
Our paths crossed for a reason, and my Tiger isn’t fooled. Once the smoke clears, she will see every player, including me. I don’t deserve a second chance. But I want one…because I want her. The question is, what happens when the truth is finally revealed?
With the end in sight, I can promise you there will be nothing but violence and mayhem.
Oh yes, blood will be shed. 

RELEASE DATE: May 7, 2020

Not my first read by the author and won’t be my last. I have of course read Book #1 which at this point I don’t need to say would be a great idea to read first, I mean if you want to go backward…by all means to each it’s own, no judgement…but read Book #1 🙂 That said I sadly can not give out too much because it really really would ruin the story line…and since I am a SPOILER FREE review’er I will do my best! MIND-BLOWING is one word I can describe this DUO…all in all Monica really knows her words and her dark romance is right on that line…

This conclusion was everything you would want from the book 1 WORLD we got…I don’t know how to explain it besides that I felt like I was part of the world, like on the sideline and this is being filmed but in real life. The dark, the deception, the hurt, the pain…it all felt real as did the sexiness of this, both characters volubility, their strength…alone they may have been broken but together not only strong but they didn’t even know themselves HOW strong together they were. Pull and push, angst, just plain beautiful! When it came down for revenge…this twist and turn conclusion will have you on the edge of your seat!

R E V I E W ➠ Road To Fire by Maria Luis

(Broken Crown Trilogy #1)

“I’m not scared of you.”
I meet her gaze. “You should be.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.
Defender of the Crown.
To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.
And then she appears.
Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to bus tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.
“Hire me,” she begs.
Won opposite sides of this war. Enemies from the start.
Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.
A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.
And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “I could use you.”

RELEASE DATE: April 30, 2020

The palest green eyes I’ve ever encountered fixate on me. Fixate, and don’t waver, as though that one glance has gifted him the opportunity to bare my soul and steal every last one of my secrets.


“I don’t get into cars with strangers.”
“I saved you.”
“You want to sack me!”

I don’t know where to begin but with a WOW! simply I am taken back by this style and words and everything coming from Maria. Absolutely couldn’t stop reading from page 1. I am a fan of WELL DONE DARK ROMANCE and she just knocked it out of the park. Holy molly was i captivated!!!

I can’t give you much on the book because i don’t do spoilers but i really don’t want to spoil one bit of this, but I’ll try my best to give you a glimpse. First of its action packed from the beginning, goes in strong. its a international-romance in the world revolving the king & queen. An organization sworn to its duty, a woman with a secret and a man so dark, brutal, cold…that you’ll be so proud of the heroine. For all her faults and weaknesses, HIM is not one of them!

Truly truly Wish i had book 2 and 3 to continue reading back to back. I’ll go as far to say that this should definitely be a movie, one which even my non-romantic husband would watch. It kind of has everything from deception, action, captivating story line and plot, unique and amazing characters, romance, sexiness, darkness and even heart. Simply plain a top 2020 must read & I am looking forward to the remainder of this trilogy. p.s. that ending, was not expecting that AT ALL!!

R E V I E W ➠ The Hating Season by K.A. Linde


Court Kensington is a thorn in my side.
I’m hired to clean up his badboy image, which would’ve been easy if my life wasn’t falling apart.
First, I catch my movie star husband having an affair with his co-star. Then when I return to work, my job is at stake, because Court has gotten himself into trouble…again.
Instead of getting him back in line, I find myself falling for his charm. And into his bed. And against the wall. And, and, and…
Except Kensington charm shouldn’t work on me. Not when I’ve sworn to never ever sleep with a client.
I had good intentions.
I really did.
But we all know the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

RELEASE DATE: April 28, 2020

Not my first read by the author but my first official review. I have not read Book #1 in this series, I jumped right into this one. What caught my eye was the cover & blurb!

Since I am not familiar except one or two books a long time ago with the style and tone, I was little disappointed that I did not like the tone and characters. The story line was good and the flow was easy but something about the hero and heroine. Here is why: the heroine was strong yes but she was more aggressive strong which to ME is a slight turn off, she was very pushy I don’t know how to express it. I felt emotion for her when her movie star husband cheated but the way to all went about was a little ‘whoa’ for me, little too strong upfront. She is a publicist and so the hero happens to be one of her clients, hired by his mother who was running for governor in the state of NY. The hero rubbed me the wrong way, it was more arrogant preppy type than alpha hero. Everything about their dynamic was off TO ME. That said, this is the reason for my rating, I very much appreciate the writing which was amazing and the tone though. This also said, I hope whoever is reading my review understands that I love what I love as far as it goes in a book, so just because this book wasn’t fully my cup of tea doesn’t mean that the next person won’t love it…that’s the beauty of being a reader…we are all different.

R E V I E W ➠ Get Bucked by Lani Lynn Vale


Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.
The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.
See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.
Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.
Enter Waylynn Jennings.
Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.
She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.
She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.
Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?
There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. Darby Valentine protects what’s his. No matter what the cost.

R E V I E W ➠ Here With Me by Tia Louise


Sawyer LaGrange.
He’s my best friend’s older brother.
He’s quiet, brooding, sinfully sexy 
Dark hair, a scruffy square jaw, and deep lines of muscle I trace my fingers along slowly, followed by my lips…
He always does what’s right.
Until me…
They say you get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Well, I’m brave.
And I want him.
Everybody has them.
Big, small, innocent… forbidden.
Mindy was a line I should never have crossed.
But I did.
She was beautiful… sassy and tempting,
And rules were made to be broken.
We broke them all.
Now I’m home, released from service with hidden scars.
Now my secrets are the demons that grow stronger every day.
I try to send her away, but I can’t let her go.
She’s my reason to fight, and I’ll walk through hell to be the man she deserves.
To give her a reason to stay here with me.

(HERE WITH ME is a STAND-ALONE best friend’s older brother, second-chance, military romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read almost every single one of her books! Every time she comes out with a book I get excited to read!! First off this hero is the brother of the heroine Noel from Wait For Me and the heroine is Noel’s best friend Mindy. So get ready for second chance romance with a twist!

Our hero here is not your normal broken this and that, he is much deeper…and to be honest when reading his thoughts and words…makes you understand him so much yet want to reach in and help. The heroine is the sweetest, she has always been in love with the hero, but never the right time. She is smart, so talented, beautiful, fun and the biggest heart…but them together is kind of like a magnet, you know they belong together but sometimes slip off. If I had to pick a tiny slaw it would be the heroine playing small little games at times, I understood but to me it was that tiny little thing if I had to find it. Aside from all that, this sis a beautifully broken story that will tear you apart and put you back together by SAWYER himself…so sweet and heartbreaking to watch him fight and fight for her!

R E V I E W ➠ Ember by Emma Renshaw


One night changed an entire town.
Ten years ago, I left Hawk Valley.
I never planned to return. Not to the regrets. The bitter memories. The guilt.
My baseball career gave me both the excuse and the money I needed to start over. Then my mom called, and I found myself headed back to the one place I swore I wouldn’t step foot again.
Meeting Delilah wasn’t part of the plan. Falling in love with her adorable son was even less so. And yet, what’s brewing between us is too intense to be denied. The unexpected passion is almost enough to distract us from the crumbling of both our worlds.
But even as the sparks fly, someone is waiting in the shadows to burn it all down. 

RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2020

From cradle to grave.
From sandbox to the pine box.
From home plate to center field.

I inched closer to her even though I was denying what I wanted to do, which was sweep her into my arms and kiss the living daylight out of her.


Not my first read by the author, she was a new to me a little ago but I read one book and then I had to read all of her books. This one, not so different. Have you ever started a book and it’s so damn good that you had to stop yourself from reading because you didn’t want it to end? Well, this is that type for me!

The book stars off with you needing tissues, because not only do things happen fast but also in doubles. But you will instantly fall in love with Gunner, right off the bat! Both hero and heroine are put in difficult situations, very different form one another meaning they carry the same amount of guilt and worry on their shoulders but worlds apart. Typing this reminds me of how I could have used another 5 or 6 books of continued stories from just this one book.

Gunner is the perfect hero, caring, strong, sweet, sexy and a baseball player…that’s all I need to say. He lost something a very long time ago but it hung on him for years, now that he is back in town for his mother…he can’t seem to get away from the memories.
Delilah is a woman that let’s just say had to grow up pretty fast. Going through life cooking one meal after another, by the way she is a fantastic chef…and her son is the main thing in her life at all times. I absolutely, if you don’t fall in love with Gunner by himself at the beginning you will once you meet him and Tucker *swoon swoon swoon* after all this book gave me all the feels, emotional, beautiful, haunting, captivating and all the romance and sexiness you need! I can’t wait to read more…p.s. secretly looking and hoping Colt Delilah’s brother gets a story!

R E V I E W ➠ She Loves Me by Melissa Foster


What are two besties willing to risk for something more? The New York Times bestselling author of This Is Love has the answer in this fun, sexy, and emotional romance about friendship, family, and giving love a chance.
Something is off in Piper Dalton’s life, and she has a feeling it might just be her. All her siblings are blissfully settled with their forever loves. But while her sisters were dreaming of white weddings, Piper was left heartbroken and commitment phobic by her first love, her best friend’s younger brother. As a woman dominating the male-driven construction industry, Piper has no interest in turning in her hammer for an apron—even if hot and hilarious Harley thinks otherwise.
Burly bar owner Harley Dutch has a bum ankle and two preteen nieces to take care of, and having his best friend, tough-as-nails and sexy-as-sin Piper Dalton, come to his rescue is just the remedy he needs. Piper is her snarky self, and she kind of sucks at caregiving, but she’s owned his heart for years, she’s got a way with the girls, and Harley would sure like to have his way with her
As things heat up between Piper and Harley, she warns him not to fall in love with her because she’ll only break his heart. Harley is the right man for that challenge—until he makes the biggest mistake of his life, and they begin to wonder if true love really can conquer all.

RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is a top favorite one as a matter of fact. I also have read the other books in the series. I was little skeptical about this one, because it’s Piper the strong, tom-boy, self sufficient, funny and again STRONG heroine. Those tend to turn me off, sadly it did but only for a few pages, I knew the way MF writes heroines that they are the good kind of strong. So, I absolutely devoured the book after a few pages!.

I really loved them together. Their banter, easy going friendship and sizzling feeling they were both trying to deny for one another. Stolen moments is what this book is all about for me, it feels a little forbidden and new and exciting, I loved watching them dodge each other all while really wanting to explore. My heart melted with this one, when there is so much happening Piper *sigh* her big heart will make you fall in love with her from the bat and Harley, as much as a jokester he is, when he lets go…absolutely BEST BOOKBOYFRIEND. Everything about this book, and I know I’ve said this before about one of her books but this is how amazing she is…about every single book I’ve read by MF I have loved! This one is just special, beautiful, sweet, SWOONY, romantic, fun and sexy! Everything you’d want in a friends to romance book!
