Rockstar Romance Boxed Set

This was an awesome collection of books, who doesn't like the bad boy? To add to it they are all rock stars! What a combination for the mind. All of the authors took the time to make you want to be in the stories, they really know how to draw you into it and also they know how to leave you  hanging! There were so many of the stories that I wanted to keep reading or even read a sequel to! There is also a lot of hot and steamy sex scenes in every book!  Overall I rated this book at four stars simply because there are so many books in the series and the theme of them all. 

The Deadly Series Boxed Set

From the very beginning I was in love with this series, it held me riveted in spot unable to move for fear of missing something important. When I read a really good book it's like I'm watching a movie, I can see the characters, the places and everything that befalls them if it's written well. This series was fabulous, it was like I was at a marathon movie premiere. I couldn't get enough, each book had it's own villain and the hero was always dangerously sexy. There were a couple of times in one of the books that I just got so mad that I didn't want to finish that book , but I forced myself to and in the end it worked out. It is because of that book that I give this series a four star review, I feel that the author did an incredible job and i cannot wait to read more by her.

Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas

I really loved this book, it really took me someplace special. Pretty, wild Dina meets rich bad boy and falls in love. After some time she realizes she pregnant. The book takes place ten months after her wild time with Virgil and she has a ten month old son. It's almost Christmas time and she wants for her son to have a good Christmas and so she has picked up everything to confront Virgil who took off after learning she was pregnant. When she arrives at the  mansion it's to find Ben not Virgil there with some horrifying news. Dina's son Dash worms his way into Ben's heart and soon Ben does the same to Dina. Their story is just what everyone needs to be reading for the upcoming holidays! I told all my friends about this book and know they will love it as much as I did.

Spotlight on Love

I didn't like this book, Indy got on my nerves from the very beginning with her casting auditions, how can she really be that stupid as to not know her agent sucks. Then she acts all high and mighty when she meets Luke, who turns out to be an awesome guy, but I'm surprised he even begins to like her the way shes a ditz. The book does have you guessing as to what could happen when the queen bee starts up the drama and then leaves. I can't believe how stupid everyone is for falling for it. The ending was ok, but the whole book was just a mess for me.

Carved in Stone

I want to start out saying I have read numerous books by Kate Douglas and I have loved most of them, this was one that I just couldn't get into for some reason though. There was just something about it that put me off, I'm not sure what it was, because honestly there really isn't anything wrong per say with the book. It just didn't  interest me in the way I would have liked. I rated the book with two stars and for that I'm sorry I only wish I could have rated it more.

Cover Me

 I have to begin this review with a big HELL YEA!!!! I loved this book!!! From the first couple of pages to the very last of the book I was enthralled with the characters and the story.  Allie is a former model, she was a big deal and everyone knew her name. She quit the business two years ago with her boyfriends encouragement, and is now regretting it. Not only did her boyfriend dump her, but he spent almost all her money and just left her high and dry for another model. Trying to get back into the business isn't easy as she is told by everyone. Because she was such a big name they are willing to give her a chance though but they tell her it's going to be hard work. They set her up with a private trainer to be with her all day long to make sure she exercises and is eating right to lose the extra weight she has gained in two years. His name is Ray and boy is he a hottie, but she doesn't have time for anything if she want's to make it again. We follow Allie through some modeling jobs that make her feel terrible and through training that just makes her sick. Ray and Allie do begin to have some feelings for each other but there is something between them that can also disrupt her career path. Things start to fall apart with a missing thong worth a ton of money that Ray is accused of stealing and it only gets better from there. I loved the detective work the author put in, it was sweet and cute at the same time as being dangerous! I have rated this book at five stars due to the excitement and wonderful storyline. I would read more books by this author in a heartbeat!!!

Play by Play

This was a cute, but short book. Jake Dublin is a sports writer and a blogger, he is divorced and feels he just isn't good at relationships. When he meets the beautiful Sophie on the elevator in his building one day he knows he wants to date her but isn't sure about her being interested in him so he takes it to his blog. He begins posting things about " Elevator Girl" in the hopes of getting advice on if he should ask her out and what her cryptic remarks might mean.  When he finally gets to know her somewhat he learns she isn't that into jocks, so he decides to not tell her what he does for a living and sure as hell not tell her about the blog on "Elevator Girl". Even his followers are telling him what a bad idea it is that he is posting things about her without her knowledge, but he ignores it. When he finally meets her family he is shocked and dismayed as to who her family members are and that they know about the posts on "Elevator Girl"! That is when everything falls apart and we want to read more and more to see how he is going to fix this mess. Overall I rated this book at four stars, but it was more of a three and a half for me. I find I'm just not that big on books with continuous blogs, emails, texts...etc.

The Virgin: Revenge

"I was seventeen when I met Drake Gallagher. Seventeen, naive, foolish…and in love. Or so I thought. That summer, and the months that followed, set the course of my life.
Ten years later, I’m still struggling to put the pieces of me back to together.
It’s time to stop struggling. It’s time to take control…and maybe, it’s time for a little revenge.
He doesn’t have time for naive little virgins?
Well, I’m not naive anymore."

When  I read this description I just knew I had to read this book. I just knew I was going to love the main character without a doubt and couldn't wait to be approved to read it. When I was approved I began reading so fast it was like I was inhaling it. Even though I did like the book, I wondered about the main character I was convinced I was going to love, there is something totally wrong with this girl. Ok so as a teen she falls for Drake and yea, he is a little rude and all that when he says what he says about virgins, but come on ten years later she is STILL upset about this incident? When I read the description I was under the impression he had hurt her by taking her virginity then dumping her by saying what he said, but no that wasn't the case.  I think girl needs to move on with her life. She goes out of her way to get a job at his company for the sole purpose of revenge...I mean really, get a life.  There were some plus sides to the book, the story does keep you entertained and you do want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen. The problem I had was I just didn't connect with the book nor did I care for the way the characters acted in the book. Overall I would rate this book two and a half stars if I could do halves.

Playing By The Rules

Even though this book was fast paced and way too short I absolutely loved it!!! Kate does have a tendency to get on my nerves a tiny bit but that can only be expected when we find out she has a plan and if life doesn't go by the plan she feels like it's all her fault and the end of everything. That is a teeny bit dramatic and that is only complaint I have with the story. The characters are amazing and very lifelike. I love Josh, who is Kate's best friends brother. She knew him years ago and had a crush on him and now when she is in town for her school reunion and alone since her boyfriend dumped her for another friend she finally gets her chance. However, she almost ruins everything with her plan mentality and I was so happy with the way it ended because if it had ended any other way I would have had to jump in that book and beat the tar out of her lol. Love the book, love the way the author draws you into the story, would love to read more by this author. Overall I am rating this cute little story with four stars.
