R E V I E W ➠ Finding His Redemption by Melanie A. Smith


Kristoffer “West” Westberg is just out of rehab and ready to reclaim his rock-god status. But when his return to fame is threatened by a former fan turned rock magazine writer — and huge critic of him and his band — West is forced to reckon with the reality that he’ll need to prove himself before earning his redemption.
Max Marshall is feisty, a little too honest for her own good, and so not here to babysit a fallen rock star. And nobody has fallen farther in her mind that Kristoffer Westberg. So when she’s forced to catalog his so-called “apology tour,” she has little hope that it’ll be anything but a headache dealing with the entitled, washed-up rock star she used to worship before she knew better.
If West hopes to have a snowball’s chance in hell of changing Max’s — and his fans’ — minds, he’s got some serious groveling to do. Will he manage to fake it till he makes it, or will he be exposed as the lost cause everyone is convinced he is? And will he learn the real meaning of redemption in time to win Max’s trust and her heart?

Not my first time reading this author but I have not read a lot to get the vibe yet, now I have with this beauty. I was a little scared to read this only because I am not huge on Rock Star romances, haven’t been able to get into the groove of that. I really did enjoy this one and might even give more of it’s kind a try.

This was a rock star romance trough adn through. Party, Sex, Drugs…all of it. When it all came crashing down and West ends up in rehab, once out he is ready to redeem himself. It’s going to be harder than he thought, after meeting Maxi, he is more determined to redeem himself, she sure make him work for it, part of why I really fell in love with her. Their story isn’t easy but it’s a beautiful one with roads that both characters have to chose to lead…and in the end will it meet the other? I think my favorite part about this book is the whole feel of it, realistic, passionate, emotional and still fun and romantic.

R E V I E W ➠ Fearless by Kaylene Winter

(Less Than Zero #3)

Family is everything, I protect mine with my life..
Connor McGloughlin had it all, a great family, a college scholarship and music.
Tragedy forced him to grow up too fast.
When his life finally is on track, Ronni Miller appears like a dream.
Kindred spirits in the most unlikely of circumstances.
There’s only one thing in the way—
Her dark past he’s determined to protect her from.
When your innocence is stolen, trust is a precious gift..
Actress Ronni Miller tasted fame at a young age.
But her path to stardom was riddled with tragedy.
She never imagined falling for Connor McGloughlin, a rogue, Irish rock star.
The thing is? Ronni’s got revenge on her mind.
Regardless of the risk or the consequences—
Or losing the one thing in her life that makes her feel alive.
Connor has only ever asked Ronni for one thing: her heart.
But when her bravery is couched in lies?
She risks losing the man who would do anything for her.
Will she realize being fearless means trusting true love?


“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

NEW to me author and books. I read the blurb to this and was captured.

Unusually I am not too big on rock-star romances (only a select few I would read) but this blurb alone really got me, and I am so happy I gave this a go! I will most definitely read more by this author and well going back to read Book 1 & 2 in this series! This book has so much depth, corrupted career incites, romance sweet sweet romance, action, life changes…I mean it had a lot of variety and the author does a fantastic job expressing it all.

Connor is a man who had to give it all up, for good reasons that is but many years forward when he is able to peruse his life dream (music) he now is part of a very successful and popular band. Ronnie has been “in the business” if you will since she was a child. The actress world is not what it really seems to be form the outside. This is where you get some incite and it will get shocking. That said, these two actually since it’s a slow burn, took a while to really connect because of their career paths. But their together path was JUST SO DANG BEAUTIFUL! That’s the best way I can express it, they each have their own lives but together they have to overcome so much to get to their HEA! Highly recommend!

R E V I E W ➠ Beneath The Stars by A.L. Jackson

(Falling Stars #4)

Maggie Fitzgerald is the last girl I should think about taking to my bed.
On the cusp of turning 21, she has her whole life waiting out ahead of her. Sexy AF while still radiating an innocence that I know better than to taint.
And here I am, itching to reach out and touch a girl who is so forbidden that just thinking about her feels like committing a mortal sin.
Thing is, I love playing with fire.
Rhys Manning is everything I shouldn’t want.
Country-rock’s newest superstar.
Fun. Wild. Ready to show the world a good time.
He’s so off-limits it isn’t even funny.
So out of reach he might as well be a poster tacked on my wall.
Too bad every time he looks at me, my heart races out of control.
Now, I’m stuck living with him for the entire summer…
We’re only supposed to be friends. Still, I should have known it was a terrible idea when I started sneaking into his room. Especially when it’s clear he’s keeping secrets.
Secrets that might destroy us both.
One touch, and I want more.
One kiss, and I’m spiraling out of control.
I know it’s reckless to start dancing in the flames.
But in exchange for getting to spend one night with this brooding bad boy? I might be willing to get burned…

RELEASE DATE: February 22, 2021

Every once in a wile, God makes someone exert special. Someone who is more vulnerable than others, and it’s out job to protect them.

Not my first read by the author, and I do LOVE Amy’s books, I’ve read the previous books in the series and have been WAITING for this one. I don’t know why but I think Amy is the only author I’ve read where her heroine could be age 20 and so mature and awesome that I overlook the age (usually the younger heroines are immature and winey annoying) this is far from it and I love her writing style for it. Also I AM MENTALLY DRAINED after reading this, might need a day or two to move on! WOW!

This book simply BLEW ME AWAY. From page one to the sweet sweet end. I don’t even know where to start. It’s a forbidden, age-gap, rocker romance with a brother’s best friend and all the FELLS in the world. One thing I will always touch on is Amy’s writing, it’s poetic with big words that make you dream! That’s the best way I can describe it. This one contained mystery and suspense which heightened the appeal of it all. Rhys and Maggie are like the DREAM COME TRUE HEA because their love may have crept up on them but something between them has always been there. The sweet innocent smart beautiful Maggie and the big tough rugged playful Rhys that was harboring a much deeper secret and chip he was carrying on his shoulder. Even though Maggie had her own set of problems happening, she was just amazing, a favorite heroine for being so stoic and sweet and just all about the hero but still fun and young. I am not going to give out a lot but will say that THERE IS A LOT! You will be whirled away into a life that you can only think of but Amy brings that alive in your imagination, just was fantastic!

R E V I E W ➠ Call You Mine by Claudia Burgoa

(The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers #4)

I’ve been best friends with Beacon since we were kids. We shared everything, even our first kiss.
Now that we’re adults, Beacon’s been cockblocking me on my quest to find Mr. Right. No matter how hard I try to find love, he’s always getting in the way.
My shy, awkward exterior doesn’t help. After all, Beacon’s the cool one, not me—I play the cello at Carnegie Hall, and he’s a heartthrob.
The famous frontman of the band Too Far From Grace. Every woman wants him, every guy…either wants to be like him or wants him too.
I decide to play devil’s advocate, and hire Beacon to teach me the dating ropes. Maybe if we work together, we can find me a guy we both approve of.
Except, moving to Baker’s Creek to work on this experiment isn’t working the way I planned. Seems like he’s doing everything to convince me that I don’t need a man. After all, I have him.

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga packed with the perfect mix of angst, tears, and laughs. If you like strong heroines & alpha males, steamy romances, and witty love stories, this series is for you!

RELEASE DATE: February 2, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I read the blurb of this and knew I needed to read it. It’s a best-friend-romance with a slow burn!

This was so beautiful, two best friends brought together by or for one passion. These two best friends who once ‘tried it’ are in for a surprise because they can’t seem to forget or want to…they keep going back and forth but the friendship…that’s the most important part about them and neither wants to ruin it. I don’t want to give out too much but Grace the heroine she is looking for connection, someone to share with…just something to complete her. When Beacon the hero realizes his sweet Gracie has a list, things to check off (that yes include sexual) he jumps on the chance to “teach” her in hopes to maybe make her realize he is the one for her. But the strange part in this is that they DID TRY IT and Beacon was the one to pull the plug. So it’s an interesting turn of events through out the whole book. I was hooked on these two, had so much fun watching them around one another, fun, sexy, sweet and adventurous. The best part of all this is THE SECRET that brings out a whole new level of things, like I said I am not giving out too much but definitely recommend diving in.

Not my first read by the author and I am a huge fan. Have read almost all of her books and of course have read Book 1 and 2 in this series which really blew me away but this one broke me SO BAD in all the good ways!

So I was kind of prepared a bit for these two because of the previous books, so to say I was prepared HA i was NOT ready at all. This book broke me from the beginning, the anguish, the pain…but then you get hints of the beautiful and sweet and good days and you get that little hope inside you to get you through. The feeling in this, Amy really gets deep with words and when you are reading, you are feeling every single letter! As heartbreaking as it is, it’s also beautiful, full of life, mysterious, angsty…and romantic. Their bond is a little dfferent than the rest and when you fidn out why, you’ll swoon and melt like I did!

Dual POV, action, angst, passion, secrets, romance, previous books characters, truly an experience when reading.

Royce’s night with the lead singer of Carolina George was the worst mistake of his life. He needs the band to sign on to his record label or his family will pay the price. But will his irresistible attraction to Emily destroy his carefully laid plans?

Not my first read by the author and ot my last, AMY happens to be one of my top favorite author’s and I have read all her books. I have also read all the books in the series and want, no, need more!

What a heart-wrenching twist of fate. wow. i had to stop myself repeatedly from reading too fast because I didn’t want to miss a beat. talk about having your heart beat out of your chest feeling.
This was truly and oh-so-heartbreakingly beautiful. The hero and heroines lives so intertwined yet so far away. Neither wanted to happen what they couldn’t deny, but when the truth came out…IT. WILL. BREAK. YOU. That’s all i am going to say. Be prepared. You can assure that the hero and heroine are the type you fall in love and get so caught up with you forget that you are reading and not living through them. It’s a slow burn, but a sweet one, two souls TWO BROKEN SOULS that are meant to be but having a hard time finding their joint path…when they do, it will both break them.

RELEASE DATE: March 5, 2020

Not my first read by author and I have read enough books by her to know the writing style. This one captivated me because of the whole ‘hero and heroine’ were left behind to take care of a siblings baby. That said, I was rather taken back for the first few chapters. You really have to pay attention, and of course I had to remind myself a lot of the previous book(s) because it really jumps in and takes you back 2/3 year span but like a sling shot. Once i Reached about 25% it started to make more sense to me. There truly was a lot happening and Like I said, I’ve read the other books and I was lost for a little there. So here is my take on it, with me being confused because it was a lot at the beginning then you have the hero and heroine meet and interact first time after that, to it turning into “later time” and now I’m at the part where the heroine is in an actual relationship with another ma . I’m sorry but lately I have been reading this type of story and came to find out that I do not enjoy it. It takes the sweet romance out for me, reminds me that cheating is very close by and breaking it off with a person then right away being “attracted” to the hero and vise versa, doesn’t do it for me. again, maybe its just me but I really just, it rubs me the wrong way. And I am kind of off put by the whole ‘I have a boyfriend but think about the hero, or say things like: i don’t care about him’ when clearly she has it for him. I just could not connect with the heroine Sage, here. Sadly so far I have not had them interact (hero & heroine) aside from Sage hating Tucker all while still thinking about him and that’s that, Tucker being a funny, sexy and sweet but to be honest I am close to 60% and she is still dating another man, so sorry to say I got fully turned off and will leave it at that.

The bok does have a lot of heart, really shows a bond people can have and not be related by blood. The hero does get swoonie but towards the end. Really wish it was like that through out, therefore that is the reason I am giving this a 4 star and not a 3.5star.

“I’m no savior. You can be sure of that. But I’ll gladly stand in the flames if it means keeping you from the fire.”


His kiss was like candy. Crystallized brown sugar. Shark as a knife.


Not my first read by author, she is one of my favorites & I have read all her books! I love LOVE her stand alone’s as much as her series! So I was super excited for this one, the blurb blew me away!! And the beginning…honestly, top favorite meets of hero and heroine!

Mia the heroine is a interesting woman, she is shy, a little thing, beautiful beyond words, a mom and strong. After a failed relationship (by failed i mena crashed and burned, been there done that a few times and had the t-shirt to prove it)I have a love/hate relationship with her and her ex that’s all I am saying. Well while Mia is Lyrik’s little sister (he is the famous ever so singer or I should say rock-star) which bu the way YOU WILL ALSO LOVE. When danger comes knocking on her door, there isn’t anything more she can do then be close to the one person that has always been there for her and always protected her, her big brother. Moving her kids to Georgia, she can’t believe that she stumbles upon the mystery man she met at a LA party she attended at her brother’s. It was a dark meet, two strangers found themselves in the same room, same time, lost but looking for something. One with big daemons daunting him and the other likewise but in a different sense. It was really ‘dark romance’ type of meet I have to say, sensual, sexy, dangerous…she was running away from danger while running towards it’s all in the same.

Leif the hero actually is someone that Mia’s older brother has known for a while but he plays for and with another band. When Lyrik is in a bind, he reaches out to him for an offer Leif can’t refuse. He moves out to Georgia at Lyrik’s property to be close, only to come face to face with his illusion. Illusion because up until know, Leif though he had made her up, made up the scenario that occurred that night, the sizzle, the feelings. What hit him the most is, that she was a mom on top of being off-limits but then that. And you will get more in the story to why I said it like that.

Motherfucking Karma.
She’d moved into my room and taken a seat at the bar, holding her glass in the air in a silent cheer.
She truly was a bitch.


They both just wanted to…to…FEEL something. Aside from theri pasts and the danger, and everything swirling around them…both Lief and Mia can’t deny the connection they have, how the air is more crisp around one another. This truly is magical to read, the feelings and words between the hero and heroine, will give you shivers. But everything beautiful has it’s dark side and this comes in the form of both their past, secrets, little of mystery, suspense and twists. Which ALL are in here, I was so caught up with the book that nothing else around me seemed to exists. Truly an amazing book because Amy the author, is magic with her words. Really don’t want to spoil any more, will say that it contains the right amount of angst, passion and udderly beautiful romance.

R E V I E W ➠ Love At The Bluebird by Aurora Rose Reynolds & Jessica Marin


With a hit song sitting at number one on the country music charts, Gavin McNeer thought he finally had everything he ever wanted.
All it takes is one look from the mesmerizing woman sitting in the front row at one of his shows and a brief encounter to make him realize just what he’s been missing. Even though he’s been burnt in the past, Gavin puts his inhibitions aside and his heart on the line to earn the trust of the woman who could be his everything.
Working in an industry where relationships start and end in the blink of an eye, Alyson Dawson has made it her mission not to get mixed up with musicians, no matter how good-looking they are. Keeping her focus on her blossoming career and clients, Aly doesn’t even have time to date much less fall in love. That is until she meets Gavin, a man who changes everything with one smoldering look.
Just when these two begin to settle into their new relationship, Aly is asked to do something that may require her to choose between the career she’s building and the man she’s falling in love with. To make things worse, Gavin’s ex decides to add a touch of drama to an already delicate situation.
Will their love survive, or become just another sad love song?

RELEASE DATE: January 31, 2020

I turn my light off and settle into the covers, praying that a certain green-eyes devil doesn’t occupy my dreams.


You will never look at this song the same, so so in love with it all.

Not my first read by both author’s and I have to say when I saw that they did a collaboration, I was jumping of joy. You definitely get both the author’s in this book! It has an amazing rock star feel but with the UNTIL sweetness and alpha! Perfect combo!

You have Alyson Dawson our heroine who is a woman with a past, a woman determined to live life on without a man, after all the last one left a sour taste in her mouth. She works for a music company and has an amazing best friend we all would want. When she ends up at the same place the BLUEBIRD it was for other intentions but fate has other plans. Fate threw in Gavin the gorgeous, talented and smooth artists. When her best friend tried to set her up with a NHL player, Aly knew right away that that would never happen. But she didn’t want to seem too eager…so naturally she waited a 10 mins before calling Gavin after he gave her his card. I mean what’s a girl to do, they were staring at each other form across the room for a good 10 minutes. Honestly you could feel the words in this scene!

When these two get together it’s explosive, in a short amount of pages you can feel every single one of them but also fall instantly in love with both main characters. So to say this is packed isn’t enough. I love the feel of the whole book and really wish there was more, but you do get an extended Epilogue that will keep you satisfied but still wanting more of course! p.s. Hero is a country star singer and KEITH URBAN – Somebody Like You will never be the same!
