THE LEGEND TRILOGY

R E V I E W ➠ Come Back For Me by Corinne Michaels



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.
No names.
No promises.
Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.

In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.

When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I’ve fought to forget.

And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.

Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again. . . 

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

Night after night I would replay it in my head, dreaming of my angel who came down from heaven, making me want to keep fighting.

-Connor

Not my first read by the author, she actually is one of my very first reads. When I say that I mean, I started reading Romance back in 2010/2011 and so her books even many moons ago have been a favorite of mine. This I was super excited from the moment I read the blurb and knowing Corinee’s style, eeekkk I was giddy!

What a ride this was, I was not prepared for the emotional and heartbreaking in the beginning, then when you think you’re slightly thinking you got this..BAM, another secret comes out and you get sidetracked. This had it all, romance, betrayal, mystery, little bit of suspense, heat and so much cuteness. Again, I never do give spoilers and therefore will not say too much but this will bring it all out in you. The heroine and hero meet and have one of the most magical night together, what happens after that is…un-explainable, but I will say that you will lose yourself in this and LIVE IT!! Watch out for that #bookhangover

R E V I E W ➠ Out Matched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITES Kristen Samantha

What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact. 

RELEASE DATE: November 19, 2019

Okay, so I could admit that he was attractive in that caveman, overtly masculine, alpha-male kind of way that some woman found appealing. I wasn’t one of them.

-Parker

She melted into me. Perfect. A fucking gift in the middle of chaos. I kissed her and the world slipped away.

-Rhys

Not my first read by both author’s, actually I read Kristen before any of this and of course Samantha young as well. These ladies are a POWER-HOUSE seriously with this book, I started this at 9pm on a night and stayed up till 2am because I couldn’t put it down.

It was fun, quirky, sexy and romantic! A big strong tough fighter vs. the little pixie powerhouse. Parker Brown may might short but she is fierce, smart SO SMART and caring, even about the universe. Their first meet might have been under false pretenses but what happened after was a BEAUTIFUL MESS!!

Rhys and Parker are MAGNIFICENT TOGETHER, the enemy-to-lovers is right on spot, the chemistry between them, the banter, the EVERYTHING! Rhys has grown up with expectations to fulfill all his life. After the loss and living to save something that from the past, he doesn’t know anything else. Parker, trying to make it in the world of men, is strong yet vulnerable at the same time. These two teach each other a thing or two, mainly how to feel again.

p.s. Rhys’s kisses are stealthy.

R E V I E W ➠ The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

Rita Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all? 

RELEASE DATE: November 18, 2019

“I would have moved heaven and earth, bought heaven and earth, to get you back.”

-Maxim

Not my first read by author and yes I was lucky enough to also receive the Book #1 ARC. Not to mention that I was even considered for this one, super excited and honored! I love this author!! Now I don’t want to get too much into Book 1 again because the ones that have read it understand of course and the ones who haven’t I wouldn’t suggest starting with a BOOK #2 in a duet! Just sayin’

Book #2 jumps right into the left over action, so basically I was hanging from that cliff and then still hanging until I got pulled up. INTENSE right off the bat…the love between these two just PULLS YOU RIGHT IN! The hero and heroine have a way of bringing out the best and worse of one another, in the bedroom…I seriously though my kindle was going to burst into flames. HOLY HOTNESS!! I don’t want to give out too much but this combo is fucking fantastic!

I was not ready or prepared at the beginning but then you hit the middle and on and BOOM! Twists and danger! Seriously was on the edge of my seat reading this. Not your conventional ending either, the author made sure to finish it the way it started, AH-MA-ZING!!

R E V I E W ➠ Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward


FREE on Kindle Unlimited

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.
Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.
Until one day it did.
Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.
Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.
Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.
But what I found could change everything.

RELEASE DATE: November 5, 2019

I felt like I could rule the world. At least, Griffin made me feel that way.

-Luca

Not my first read by the author’s and haha would NEVER be my last! I have read every single book that they have & the ladies are my ONE-CLICK reads!

It’s unbelievable how much I relate to Luca in the medical field department. She is a agoraphobic person and someone who eight years ago, made a huge HUGE mistake, even though the incident occurring shouldn’t have stopped her. Years later when she reads THE LETTER she want’s to kick herself in her ass because she failed, big time. Just from the first few chapters you can tell the characters personalities. Luca to me was a woman who had a hardship and it turned more into a years f building up anxiety that only got worse. Still a strong person, very genuine and sweet, and best part: outspoken. It’s just all so mysterious and familiar in the beginning….

This was such a complex story to read because in one way, you can relate very much and in another you’re so caught up in the story that you have no idea you’re sitting somewhere reading. It’s like being pulled in and out of a haze, in a good way of course. The ladies have a way of transforming you into the story that not only do you not want to leave but they always leave you wanting and needing more. It’s what I lost most about this power couple, I’m 100% sure I’d read anything from them!!

God my heart from this book, I am a serious mess and not sure I can read anything for a little while. WOW! I am crying and writing this, the best BEST ENDING SURPRISE EVER!! Actually I am writing and composing all this while enjoying the SURPRISE! It’s so beyond perfect for JUST EVERYTHING! I couldn’t recommend this book any more than I already am, GO AND READ IT! The beauty, sacrifice, beautiful souls, pain and just plain LOVE…it’s mesmerizing!!

R E V I E W ➠ This Is Love by Melissa Foster



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

has everything money can buy, but her bodyguard is all she wants—and together they’re exactly what each other needs in this heart-racing romance by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of Call Her Mine.
Actress Remi Divine is sick of bodyguards, sick of stalkers, and sick of feeling like she is always under a microscope. But this movie star isn’t helpless by any means. She’s got a rebellious streak, and she knows how to use it. First order of business: getting rid of the overbearing bodyguards who are sticking to her like glue.
Mason Swift has made protecting others his life, and when Remi ditches his two best men, he takes over and gives it everything he has. Having grown up in the foster-care system, and as a former special operative, he knows all the tricks. Nothing gets by him, especially not gorgeous, sneaky Remi.
He thinks she’s a diva. She thinks he’s arrogant. But when sparks turn to flames and their walls come down, their true hearts are revealed, and their connection is unstoppable. And when tragedy strikes, Remi realizes that being protected isn’t the worst thing in the world—but losing Mason just might be.

RELEASE DATE: December 3, 2019

He had plenty of scars on his body. He’d proudly wear the marks of the first woman to stir something inside him that he’d never known existed.

-Mason

She tasted sweet and hot, like sunshine and whiskey, and holy fuck, he wanted to get drunk and live in the sun.

-Remi

Not my first read by author, very familiar, top 5 of my favorite author’s and yes I have read almost every single book by her!! I couldn’t wait to read this, so I read it a month or so in advance hehe 🙂 another TOP 2019 MUST READ from this author for me for this year!!

I will say that I usually do not like celebrity romance, because the actions and fame kind of tend to get in the way of the romance, this ABSOLUTELY PERFECT way to have a Celeb Romance!! It was everything you need, the star heroine, protective bodyguard…fun, romance, danger and suspense. I seriously couldn’t put it down, was up till 3am finishing this!!

Remington Aldridge is a well known, famous and amazing actress. Got into the business well before her teens and just blossomed into it. Now she is contempt at where she is in life…wrong! She not only has no privacy but is now having to have bodyguards on her 24/7 per her scary protective brother. She has every right to be worried because not too long ago some lunatic broke into her home and she is still receiving threats. When Remi attends a function and see’s the most attractive and sexy man on earth, it falls short when she looses sight of him. Only to run into him, literally a little later. When they have a rather RUDE encounter, she finds out that the rude sexy man is her now only bodyguard and the owner of the company being hired to provide the protection. What’s a girl to do? Cause mayhem, trouble and give him the slip. But not on Mason Swift’s time. It’s really sweet when he catches her.

They both try to fight against their pull to one another, hard and everything in between to the sweet…is AMAZING, the scenes, the story line, the words…gah, I couldn’t seriously put it down. I will warn you this is in a 3rd person which I am used to from the author so I enjoyed it very much. I can only read in 3rd person by MF it seem’s, she just puts it all together so well, it flows and makes you want to live through the story.

Mason Swift, a little about him because he is the ultimate BOOK BOYFRIEND bodyguard. He is tall, handsome, strong, beautiful heart, gentle but rough…JUST PERFECT! The cover also fit him so well because that is exactly how I saw him play out in my head. He has the hardest time to control himself when little temptress keeps him on his toes. He has had a rough time during his childhood, and has closed himself off for so long he isn’t even sure that anyone could climb that wall. Enter Remi, the brave, beautiful, broken and sassy woman. I really LOVE them together, they are like salt and pepper, when put together it’s the most delicious combo and separate they have their own lives but always are in need of one another.

When lines are crossed, all bet’s are off. Mason will do anything to protect Remi. After all it kind of is his job. Danger seems to be just around the corner but that doesn’t stop them two from forming a bond I’m not sure I would ever want to see disappear. It was just so beautiful, pure and so MUCH HEART! I just loved every moment of these two. And I really hope that Remi’s older brother Aiden is next!!

R E V I E W ➠ Leave Me Breathless by Jodi Ellen Malpas



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn’t only surprised, he’s also instantly intrigued.
Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.
Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store…and hiding too many secrets. It’s why she won’t let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn’t even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.

RELEASE DATE: November 5, 2019

The second our tongue touch, my upside-down world starts to spin, the rain pelting down on us, the thunder rumbling, and the lightning cracking, all drowned out by the sweet feeling of acquiescence.

-Ryan

Not my first read by author and you can safely assume she is one of my top 5 author’s ever!! I have read every single of her books so far & I can’t express enough of how much THIS ONE HIT ALL THE RIGHT SPOTS! I haven’t had this much fun and excitement reading a book where I had to put it down to either laugh or place a hand over my heart because it hurts! p.s. you get a little glimpse in the life of JAKE SHARP! *you’re welcome and now let me disappoint you a little and say NO EPILOGUE! *dramatically saying NOOOOOO*

Where do I start with this? Aside from the fact that I never wanted it to end? Little story then Ryan is a partner with Jake Sharp (remember him, ooh yeah) so aside from being partners they are also best friends. We get a little of him in The Protector. So, the fact that he got a story I SCREAMED at that alone, this was very different from Jake’s story and the best on it’s own. Really HAPPY and GLAD that Ryan got his own, except I’m not crying until we get another book or an EPILOGUE to satisfy my hunger for these two!!

Story:
Ryan was getting restless, he was missing something. So he made a choice he though was best…until he rolls into town and technically runs a woman over. Yep, straight up runs her off the street (poor Hannah was on her bike) a bike she very much loved. When Hannah first spots Ryan it’s like nothing else existed, literally because she was so tongue tied and extra clumsy that she runs off. That left Ryan in a who is she? what just happened? type of state. Their first meet is epic! Their little world soon kept building, missed almost kisses later, the first kiss was breathtaking! Gah, the SWOON is almost unbearable but you get swept up in the description it will play out in your head like a movie!! I am still swooning over that. Single-Dad, Secret Agent/Bodyguard and Lumberjack sexy as sin Ryan, doesn’t know what hits him in the form of Hannah. She is nothing like anyone to him and he finds himself so easy to be with her. It’s fun, beautiful, sexy and spunky…their love may have come form the left field but with every hit it just got better and better. The LIE AND SECRET in this will drive you nuts, make you want to read faster to find out, not before you speculate every scenario possible. *Note that you will INSTANTLY fall in love with Ryan’s daughter Alex a.k.a Stinky Cabbage, for a 10 year old she is smart and well over her age, entertaining to the core, funny and super sweet! Really really fell in love with her from the start.

Truly and honestly I can say that (Jodi please don’t kill me) but I am TEAM RYAN WILLIS now (SORRY JAKE) but Ryan stole my heart. Couldn’t get enough of this story, the characters, plot everything and I hope in the future we get a little more of these two *hint hint*

R E V I E W ➠ The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

𝙋𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧. 𝙋𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣. 𝘽𝙚𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙮𝙖𝙡.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2019

“We get whatever the fuck we want,” he says, dropping his eyes down the length of my body. “And I want you, Lennix Moon. I want the girl who chases stars.”

Not my first read by author and by all means the cover alone got me hooked then you read the blurb and realize that HELLO this is Kennedy Ryan we are talking about and you KNOW this is going to be epic! And EPIC it was, I couldn’t get enough of it.
For starters I want to say that this was FANTASTIC from the few pages already, and it only got better and better. The story line, the characters, side-characters, plot…EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS was FLAWLESS!

Part I:
Lennix & Maxim are a two souls meant to be but met in the wrong time. Not the wrong place, I believe Maxim was meant to be there that day, even if the day ended in one defeat and one loss…the loss being Lennix’s.

Part II
When their paths cross again it’s later in life and when Maximus see’s Lennix he would never forget a face like hers. After all HER is what kind of shaped his path. And it’s kind of funny how they cross path’s again, unfortunately AGAIN, right people wrong time. It’s get’s a bit sizzling here and a beautiful adventure. Until Maximus does what he told his brother Owen, no distractions. Two people ages apart in the same world wanting to change and conquer. *sigh*

Part III
Ummm Lennix is RUTHLESS!! Being in the Political world herself now MANY years later, she is set out to help the candidates win and move forward. It’s why I fell in love with her some more here, yes I think she shouldn’t have been that HARD on Maxim but honestly what he did, I’d do and think the same. When Maxim and Lennix path crosses again it’s not really fate that does it, but good old power and money. Only now they are both older, wiser and just MORE. I gotta say I’m not a big fan of Maxim here….*shameless hussy* ugh men!! But it’s a chain of events that are like a roller coaster, times your enjoy and love and times you fear and hate. However, the ending to this *which yes it’s a cliffhanger* my god I can’t wait for Book 2, this will be torture!!!!!!!!! PREPARE!

R E V I E W ➠ Just Ten Seconds by Jeannine Colette



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for my life to change forever.
I left my posh life in Manhattan and escaped to the Hudson Valley in hopes of a fresh start. It wasn’t until I happened upon a bereavement group when I finally found a place I felt understood. I told them my husband was dead when, really, I was the one who had died inside. It was also where I saw the smoldering gaze of Dean Delgado, the single father whom I’d helped just days before.
Just Ten Seconds
That’s all he wishes he had with his late wife.
Despite Dean’s widowed status, he has a robust thirst for life. He’s a protector and a giver. A man who fixes things with his hands, is devoted to his child, and wants to spend his days with me. I try to avoid him, knowing a woman with my past has no business being in this man’s life. With every run-in, he makes me laugh. With every touch, he ignites me. And with every second, he makes me feel like myself again.
Just Ten Seconds
That’s all it took for me to fall in love with Dean Delgado.
I’m in too deep and my secrets are about to be exposed. I only hope he can forgive me for the lies I never meant to tell.

RELEASE DATE: October 22, 2019

I was a pawn in the game of life. I just didn’t know I was playing.

“I had hope, and you appeared, My esperanca.”

-Dean

Not my first read by author, I do believe it is my first the author alone review, the other’s were where it was joint. So, I was super excited for this. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I really like the Blurb so I went for it, and flipping A..this made it on my TOP 2019 list and if I could place it there three four times I would! *sigh* my heart with this.

Mara is a woman who is lost, not just your basic lost but deep down lost. The event she went through that brought her is something you’ll never expect. There is a mysterious factor to this plot and when you hit end of chapter 17 BOOM you’ll be saying ‘what just happened’. The twist and turn to this slow burn is amazing! The way she meets Dean and his beautiful daughter might have been a play of fate but everything after that was all Mara…until one day she finally realizes that, she screwed up. I can’t say how, when and what because let me tell you, you don’t want it spoiled. This heartfelt story will pull at the heart strings and play with your emotions while being SWOON ROMANTIC. Dean is *sigh* Dean is a man that comes around only once in a lifetime. He is handsome, tall, dark, half Italian-Portuguese and the best dad there could be. The way he is with his daughter…SWOON SWOON SWOON!

But this story is so much more in depth on all the levels. Not going too much into it to give anything up but the angst is higher from the experience. One experience that is shared with the other, yet a lie of omission is still a lie. The feelings this book brought out in me were unreal, I swooned, and felt the pain, laughed and cried. Just plain beautiful, all of it! I LIVED for the extended Epilogue YES! Can’t wait for more from the author! *this is from the heroine’s POV only.

Not my first read by author and I also have read Book 1 & 2 in this series which I loved too. So now it’s Dawn & Mark’s story and boy was I not ready for this one! What a complex romance with twists and totally unexpected!
Prepare to cry your eyes out in the beginning…oh my heart! Actually this entire book just be prepared to SWOON & CRY! Pretty much the sweetest with a twist of sexy stories you’ll get! I loved it from the beginning to end, which I didn’t want it to end! I mean the hero calls the heroine HIS PIXIE! It’s super adorable and the fact that he is 6’4 and she is a foot shorter…it’s just…GAH I LOVED IT ALL!

Mark is a man who kind of has it all, he is happy, has friends and family…also has Dawn he has been seeing for a while now. Dawn is best friends with Mark’s brother’s wives! So this is where I’d say YOU SHOULD read Book 1&2 but don’t have to. Them two they are beautiful together. Their relationship wasn’t something traditional, hidden maybe but not traditional. When things seem to shift, a life changing event occurs for Dawn…and THEY JUST KEEP ON COMING. Seems like every time Dawn tries to take control of her life, life hits her with a warning. But Mark, the sweetest most sexiest man on earth…want’s to be there for her…only she isn’t sure how to let anyone in when everything seems to always fall apart for her.

It’s such a beautiful love story and SO ROMANTIC! This is a re-read type of book for sure! The entire series but this one took the cake for me. Just beautiful!

R E V I E W ➠ Love Me Tomorrow by Maria Luis



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

They call her America’s Sweetheart.
And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.

I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.
Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.
If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.
If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be… but I’m not.
Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.
All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”
I’m no gentleman.
But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

Love Me Tomorrow is the third book in the highly anticipated series, Put A Ring On It, and can be read as a complete standalone.

RELEASE DATE: September 26, 2019

Catching me completely off guard, he steps in close, demolishing the distance between us, and hooks an inked finger under my chin. My chest caves with need, lust, awareness. Although I’ll never admit it out loud, my knees quiver, too. Quiver!

-Savannah Rose

She tastes like promise. Like desire. Like sin.

-Owen Harvey

Not my first read by author but I believe it is my first OFFICIAL review & all! Something about this blurb really caught my eye. Yes, I have not read the previous 2 books in the series but this can be read as a stand-alone too and BOY WAS I GLAD I SIGNED UP FOR THIS ARC! In love with the story and characters is an under-statement! I loved everything about it, the angst the dirty…this might be a short review BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO SPOILER ALERT anyone, but let me just say that it is on my TOP 2019 for a good reason!

So much I want to say BUT CAN’T!!!!!! Ugh! I will say that everything is intertwined! Savannah is miss-understood, actually she is not understood at all, what she has ever done and doing is all for her family. Lines can’t be crossed because well BECAUSE [parts of why i can’t say anything because of spoilers] but I will tell you that whatever people HEAR is not what they see. I feel for Savannah and the choices she is only left to take. Will she be able to stand on her own, for herself? Owen is a man that may have missed out but isn’t about to make that mistake again, but when lies, secret BIG SECRETS and little bit of danger threaten everything…will they both be able to become who they are together?!

This deserves so much more than 5 stars, I may not have read every single book by this author but the one’s I have, I have loved. This one tough takes the cake through and through! You get both POV, chemistry, all the feels, laughter, SWOON ROMANCE, suspense…it has it all!

R E V I E W ➠ Enchanting Sebastian by Kristen Proby



GOODREADSAMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Turning thirty-five doesn’t mean much to most men. For Sebastian Wakefield, it’s the end of life as he knows it.
When your father is the King of England, thirty-five is the year that a marriage will be arranged, a suitable bride cementing a future you didn’t choose. The obvious solution for escaping the archaic laws of the throne is for Sebastian to leave the country. And where better to go than America?
Nina Wolfe has spent her career avoiding scandal. As a Hollywood publicist and minor celebrity in her own right, she knows exactly what it takes to keep the media at bay—and what will send them into a frenzy.
Prince Sebastian hiding out in Cunningham Falls, Montana is an unlikely story. Ending up in his bed, even more so. And keeping their arrangement out of the press might just be impossible. The ring on her finger is about to spark a firestorm that will change her life, and no professional spin will help Nina fit into the world of royalty.
Only love could write an enchanting new beginning—if they’ll let themselves fall.


RELEASE DATE: September 24, 2019

SHE’S BLOODY INTOXICATING.

-Sebastian

“Your skin is beautiful under a full moon.”

-Sebastian

Not my first read by author and heck I read her before I even started any of this bookstagramming and blog stuff! The cover alone in this is MAGNIFICENT, i mean look at the full cover too, SO GORGEOUS!! Safe to say I will be getting a paperback, haha!

CAN I JUST SAY HOW MUCH I FLIPPING LOVED THIS BOOK!!!? Their first meet was priceless and perfect, Nina is MY kind of girl!! She is the girl that doesn’t mind eating alone, or being alone for that matter. Doesn’t believe in romance because well she’s never experienced it so why believe in something you only hear or read about? She’s just a woman trying to find a place in the world, something for herself to keep occupied, not looking to meet a prince and end up marrying him haha that would be silly,wouldn’t it! *smirk*

This is not your traditional love story at least to me it is because the hero and heroine can’t keep their hands off each other once it’s there. Not a slow burn but a build up for sure. They are just so perfect together that it will just flow…that’s how i felt about this whole story it flowed well, events occurred just as if you were there. A lighter side of the read. Kristen really did a good job here getting the details in and having the main characters be so in sync, lots of laughter, love and just life! This is Book #1 of the series and I can’t wait for more!

GOODREADSAMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

An anonymous chat forum. 
Two lonely people. 
And the summer everything changed.
Camden Bergen is Colorado royalty. An heir to the Bergen Mountain Sports empire, he could have the world at his fingertips. Instead, he’s shouldering the pain of his past, across the ocean, hidden away from everyone but his anonymous online friend known to him only as Mountain Daisy. 
But that’s about to change.
Cadence Lowry doesn’t have time for distractions. Between teaching full time, raising her young son, and renovating two historic homes, her only escape is corresponding with her chat forum friend, Mountain Mac. 
Love isn’t on her radar until Camden mysteriously returns to Denver after a decade long absence and moves in next door. 
It’s only for the summer, but things don’t stay neighborly for long. 
Surrendering to an attraction they can’t deny, they agree to a no strings attached steamy summer fling. 
But when their hidden identities are revealed, will it be too late to salvage a love always meant to be?

RELEASE DATE: September 30, 2019

Her touch was shelter. Her scent, the air, fragrant with wildflowers.

-Cam

“What kind of smile do I give you?”
The kind I could wake up to every day for the rest of my life. The kind that’s brighter than the sun. The kind that deserves the man I could never be.

Not my first read by author, she happens to one of my very firsts when I started my BOOKSTAGRAMMING world. I have loved and read every single book she has put out and this one, *sigh* might take the cake!!

Little back story to whom Camden Bergen is, he is the youngest brother and also the one who fled the country right after their parents passed. He feels responsible for it, and therefore cut himself off and left to live just a simple life in Switzerland, where he worked odd jobs and just lived simply. Including not caring what his scruff or hair looks like. That’s why when I say he burst through that locked gate in front of his family, he looked like a hulk doing it. Rough, rugged and big! but sexy, ooooh very sexy!! Camden is about to the the ride of his life!

Cadence is a single mom, who is dedicated her life to raining him and renovating a 1930’s home. She doesn’t have time for dating or a love life, she is a teacher, mom and friend, that should be enough. Well she does have Mountain Mac her online ‘friend’ she has been corresponding with for a year now. But when he goes silent on her, she worries. Then when she offers the big mountain man a place to stay during the summer, what was she thinking?

This is a beautiful complicated love story. Where two souls truly are meant to be and are trying to find their way to one another. SERIOUSLY ROMANTIC AND SWOON WORTHY!! I know it’s the last one in the series and I am so so sad about it, but Camden was very very romantic and sexy…gah couldn’t get enough of the story. Wanting to re-read it already! A lot of fun, I laughed very much THOSE DAMN SQUIRRELS!! Honestly, a sweet, romantic, funny and sexy story!! Perfect way to end a Series!!

R E V I E W ➠ Dangerous Temptations by Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer



GOODREADS AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE -> KELLY / KRISTIN

Mike Murphy is the new cop in town.
He makes me crazy in all the right ways.
So crazy that I lose mt filter around him, not to mention by ability
to function like a normal person.
The attraction between us is undeniable and something we can’t
ignore.
But there’s a secret that threatens to come between us. When we
uncover more than we should, things become dangerous.
Will we be able to walk away, or will the quest to find the truth be
too tempting?

“…Come by the clinic sometimes if you ever need a vet.” What. The. Hell? If you never need a vet?

-Sydney

Oh, just Mr. Sexy Pants sizzling my bacon. Again with the bacon?

-Sydney

“I’m amazon. I’m wonderful. I’m blissfully happy. I hope this isn’t a dream.”

Not my first read by both author’s and they both are one of my top favorites!! So I will say this, if you want fun & adventure with a lot of swoon and romance….this is it!!!!!

Sydney is a successful Vet, who is living her life…even if it’s alone. When I say alone I mean alone, she lost her parents a couple years before and now here she is spreading the ashes of the last family member to have around. Her beloved grandfather, someone she looked up to and counted on especially after her parents passed. She is upset that she couldn’t make it down earlier to live their dream of practicing together, but she vows to upkeep his legacy and so she moves back home to the small town that holds so many secrets.

This is where Mike; Office Murphy comes in, one night while standing in front of the practice, he scares the life out of her. He has been keeping an eye on her grandfathers place and no one was expecting her back early. Their meet is one for the books!! Sydney is a unique woman, quirky in the cutest way ever and sort of has no filter on her mouth. What she thinks is unattractive to Mike (because of her past experience) she is surprised when she keeps seeing him around town. Aside from Mike there is Wesley her childhood long time best friend she hasn’t seen in a while. She is just glad to be back in known land and honestly, a fresh new start is something she has needed.

Characters
Sydney: smart, funny and beautiful..so beautiful she has no idea. She is unique as in quirky and sometimes tends to say what her mumbled brain thinks.
Mike: Strong, very smart, handsome, sexy and SO SWOON WORTHY! Gah!! He is really dreamy guys, perfect combo!

When Sydney is given something her grandfather left behind, she is of joy because even as a child she and her grandpa always loved a good scavenger hunt! And this is no different! Except it is in every aspect of the way. What happens next is the adventure of a life. Throw in some funny parents who are very open with their son, lot’s of danger and some magically beautiful romance and you have this master-piece! Nothing is as it seems, pay attention and try to solve it yourself…at the end, you’ll realize that what you thought was ISN’T and there is so SO MUCH MORE!!
