R E V I E W ➠ Falling With You by Carrie Ann Ryan


NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.


I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

And her.

Only Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.


“He wasn’t mine. He had never been mine. And the sooner I got that through my skull, the better for both of us.”

Not my first read or review by this author, although I will say that I have read a lot fo her books BB (BB=Before Bookstagramming) so I am familiar with her writing style and I haven’t read Book 1 & 2 so I am skipping ahead. OPS, but I couldn’t pass the chance because of the blurb that got me and the cover photo.

I guess you can say I must be a sucker for tear jerker’s. Ones where a loved one is gone *sigh* here we are again. The beginning alone got me, when Sienna get’s into trouble and a certain someone comes to the rescue, all kind’s of things go wrong…and not just with the incident. My heart goes out to Sienna who is trying to figure it out herself too. After a HUGE TRAGEDY that left everyone confused and with questions…one things never changed someone, well it changed just Sienna isn’t sure why and how her “crush” on Aiden got stronger.

The story does have some GO BACK’S as i call them, from previous years history which are great, I do love those. This is definitely a ENEMY-TO-LOVERS-ROMANCE and you’ll see what I mean. Aiden is not your typical hero, he is all man and alpha yes but also carries a huge chip on his shoulder…my heart only partially goes out to him because there were a lot of time I just wanted to smack him so hard! *face palm* stupid men!

I want to address the cutest and most *swoon* scene in this that involves a rough, big, handsome chef and a cute adorable little kitten named Diego that meow’s! *stop me someone* this made my heart flutter. *p.s. he is a little devil*

I also have to say that you should prepare, this entire story pulled at my heartstrings…bad! I can just feel the anger, grief and loss…*sigh* that is why Aiden and Sienna’s relationship makes it so much harder. How do you move on from something like that? I mean they equally shared a person, friends wise of course, but it’s never an easy loss that way. The hardest part is, Sienna know’s there wouldn’t be an “US” because Aiden…he just couldn’t get over it. Too soon, too much and too fast. *god, my heart*

To say I got a little emotional in this book, is an understatement. It really brought out all the emotions for me, why I love the author’s books. Each book is a new adventur, this one just happens to be a heartbreak one. I won’t say anymore but HIGHLY UBER-HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book! I am getting the paperback when I need to feel ALL THE FEELS in the future!

Fractured Connections Series [Book 1, 2 & 4]

R E V I E W ➠ Love At First Sight by Kelly Elliott


Love at first sight. 

That’s what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends. 

When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart. 

I want to hold out hope that he’ll change his mind. 

Instead, he moves on. 

The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn’t slay me. 

So, I say yes…to the man I love. But he isn’t the man I’ve been in love with nearly my entire life. 

“He won’t ever be able to love you like I love you. No one will ever love you like that.”

“Les mots ne peuvent pas decrire mon amour pour toi.”

Words cannot describe my love for you.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Kelly Elliott is one of my top 5 favorite authors and reads. I have read every single of her books and am very familiar with her writing style. This is a stand-alone and I was over the moon excited to give into this!

This story starts with the back-story of it and my heart, even though we are talking high school level back story! Lovers circle is when you’ve been around a person so much and they are your everything just aren’t your EVERYTHING! This was hard for me to read because I can familiarize with the story a lot and plus the tug-and-pull in this…will play with your heartstrings.

Can’t really say too much because it will give it away but guys, this is such a sweet and loving story. A true boy meets girl in kindergarden and they fight for their life…together. The hard moments were intense and let me tell you Chloe Cat is not a cat at times, more like a Lion cat. I was super mad at Rip for the longest time but boy did he redeem himself, phew *SWOON CITY*

I don’t get to read sweet stories like this often but every time I do, it’s always a perfect fit of sweet and action from Kelly Elliott. I don’t know but her books are never the same and always something surprising. Be prepared for gushy on this one, lots of action, crying scenes and a beautiful HEA!

R E V I E W ➠ All Grown Up by Vi Keeland


When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to. 

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties. 
But…he looked so familiar
As I got closer I realized why. 
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home. 
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man. 
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me. 
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

-Mark Twain

A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.

“You’re so incredibly beautiful, Valentina. I’ll remember this summer forever.”

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Definitely not my first read by the author, she is one of my very favorite top authors! I was a bit tiny bit skeptical about this one because it involves a younger hero than the heroine. So here we go….

Valentina well she is something else, her friend though Eve haha I really liked her a lot, along with Valentina, she isn’t the older heroine that is childish, it’s always refreshing to read that. Also could be the fact that that’s how Vi writes, not sure…I am very familiar with her writing style and this was a perfect fit for the heroine. Anyways, I kind of fell in love with both of them right from the start. Can’t say that about Ford.

Ugh, men are pigs in all senses, and who hires a french assistant anyway *rolling eyes* aside form being a “man” Ford is actually charming in a sexy broody type of way!
Match.com though, that was the kicker, I love the reason he messaged her or I think send her something showcasing he liked her profile. Because she looked like the woman who cared more about having the fun than hair and make-up. It was sweet! p.s. little secret she is 37 and he is 25! You’re welcome!!

So here they are spending a week…ONLINE?! Yes, online, chatting ONLY as per Valentina! Their meet hahaha was freaking priceless, my anticipation was of the roof and then their realization of one another *face palm* haha

From The Book:
Instead of responding, I went to my contacts and edited Donovan to Ford — a gentle reminder that Donovan wasn’t a man I could ever be attracted to; he was simply Ford, the boy next door

What do you do when you’re stuck with the ‘boy from next door’ in the same summer next door houses during the whole summer again? Well, that is the question 😉 Their first date was so sweet, Valentina was so nervous and Ford was the ever so YES 25 ONLY but god was he all man and just yummy.

What fun to read this, this is what I love about Vi’s books, her characters are so likable in all forms even reading a book where no matter the age they are just perfect. Ford will have you feeling alive again, feel passion, feel yourself…Ford is a DREAM BOOKBOFRIEND! The epilogue will have you crying, so much LOVED!!

R E V I E W ➠ Flutter by Carrie Aarons


He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?

Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.

Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.

What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.

Release Date: July 11, 2019

“Funny, that’s not what you were saying the night of Keaton’s wedding. So, after I’m done with my deep dive on the computer system, maybe I can stop by the nurse’s office and do a deep dive on your network?”

Penelope is my taste, and now I want the entire restaurant. -Forrest

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author and I have read all in this series, I was a bit skeptical about Forrest’s story only because it involves a younger hero (him) and the heroine is not only older but a widow mom.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to connect when the hero is younger because if immaturity is involved, I get turned off a story BUT luckily my fears were put to rest…Forrest might be younger but the very much sexy, handsome and big hero. That said, Forrest is a Cop and Penelope is a high school nurse. Penelope lost her husband and became a young widow with three growing boys. Never easy but when she shacked up with Forrest at his brother’s wedding, well let’s just say that even didn’t give light of him in her eyes. She really hates his arrogant and cocky ways, hates everything about him but can’t deny the way he connects with her body! It’s a struggle, for real!

Forrest has had a crush on Penelope for many many years and when they first came together, it was like a dream came true for him. But, Penelope comes with a lot of baggage yes, lot’s of history, yes…will that stop Forrest? Hmmm!

Again, I was very surprised with myself how much I enjoyed this story, in spite of the whole age reverse difference. Both Forrest and Penelope run so deep, age doesn’t matter, when two souls come together. The pain, hurt and guilt Penelope carries are big. When they both come to an agreement to satisfy both of their wants and needs, when push comes to shove, Penelope isn’t really all keen about Forrest’s actions…even if she demanded it so. That’s where Penelope kind of annoyed me a little, i understand it from her point of view but it was persistent…like ‘we are fuck buddies and that’s that’ at all times. So you can say this is a enemy-to-lovers-romance for sure!

Forrest is corny, cocky and all male, not fully sure of himself yet but fully male. I really liked him as the hero, Penelope was a give and take for me to be honest. I enjoyed getting someone more of the previous book characters. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised I enjoyed this book, the ending I WAS NOT EXPECTING it at all, all in good of course. I am glad I got to see Forrest and Penelope’s story!

Billionaire workaholic Jasper Bergen calls the shots—and that’s just the way he likes it. Period.

As CEO of Bergen Enterprises, he’s dedicated his life to keeping his family’s mountain sports empire profitable. But sales have plateaued, and the company needs a jumpstart.

Enter Elle Reynolds.

She’s a bestselling travel writer whose celebrity adventurer status makes her the perfect choice to boost the company’s public image.

The perfect choice to everyone but Jasper.

Hired by the company’s founders, he has no choice but to work with the free-spirited author.

And while they clash at every turn, Elle can’t quit. Her accountant has swindled her out of millions, and she needs this job to get back on her feet.

But Jasper and Elle may have more in common than they think.

Thanks to their busy schedules, neither’s dated in ages.

Each is experiencing a sexual famine that can only be remedied by a feast— a MAN FEAST.

And these two opposites soon realize there’s a fine line between love and hate.

COMING: July 15th
ARC provided by: Author

Artists should pain this man. Sculptors should carve him out of marble. No longer clean shaven, Jasper Bergen with a little stubble was the definition of sexy on a stick. -Elle

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first read, I’ve had the honor of reading every single book this author has put out, well form the beginning, all 5 from the first series Langley Park and now this new series. That means I have already read Book #1, and will say that Krista has been one of my very firsts when I started bookstagramming, I enjoy her books so much I can’t wait for more!

Right off the bet, the book dives in. Where Elle is sitting in front of a high-priced attorney…not for the reason you may think. Her A-hole of a assistant did unspeakable things where Elle is not left with nothing to her name except what was paid up-front and is actually to her name. That doesn’t leave her much, so the deal she has with Bergen Enterprises she really can not miss out on that. It will help her, her mother and of course get her back on her feet.

Jasper Bergan, what do I say about this broody hunk of sexiness! Well that, and he is very responsible and hahaha Elle throws him off kilter. It’s the best thing ever! A big man like him, finally meeting his match in a lot of ways. Even though at the beginning he does a fantastic job of denying and putting his feeling or anything regarding Elle off.

The adventurous, the places, Krista is very good with details not too much and just enough to suck you right in a story. Her characters are always very well written, I think I enjoyed both of them in here. I always love me some broody sexy CEO man, duhh! Am i right?! Finally the stuffy suit wearing man let’s the carefree author show him what it feels to be carefree. Even their love making is unique, sexy yes but unique. He calls her by her full name and middle name which is so adorable and so Jasper. They are ALSO SWEET TOGETHER, he can really SWOON anyone, even if he is a stuffy-suit-wearing man. Their opposite attracts is magical! I think i really fell in love with that, not to mention the fact that they happen to have something so in common….*SIGH* no spoilers don’t worry!!

I really love these two together, something different and yet even the different sometimes the soul isn’t so much. If you want some fun, adventure, sexy and ALL THE FEELINGS, this is for you!!
