Rebel: The Biker Next Door by Jamie Fuchs

f you're a fan of alpha biker books, you're going to LOVE this one! 

Mr. Cook has lived next door for about as long as I can remember. Covered in tattoos and the proud owner of a Harley Davidson, he’s never been well-liked around here by anyone but me. I never understood all of the hatred. 

Only days after my birthday, he approached me with word of a surprise birthday present. Curious, I followed him toward his house and onto his roaring bike..

My Review

This is a very exotic and sexy short read. Just long enough to get your blood pumping and to make you want more of that sexy biker next door.

A Major Seduction (Good To Go #2) by Marie Harte


Major Mike Cava has done his best not to see Maria Thompson as anything but his baby sister’s best friend. Not an easy feat when Maria’s done her best to throw herself at him for years. But now that’s he’s returned to the East Coast and with his family again, he feels easier about handling little Maria.
Except in the two years since he’s seen her last, Maria has grown way up. Good God, she’s stunning. But now that he’s really seeing her, she isn’t seeing him. No more jumping into his arms or smiling and flirting. A bland hello and she’s leaving to go hang out with some other guy. Oh hell no.
Maria spent the past fourteen years mooning over a man who never saw her as anything but a little girl, and she’s done. Or so she tries fooling herself. She’s twenty-four years old, and it’s past time she grew up and over him. But now Mike’s giving “those” looks. He’s acting jealous. And she realizes that she’s not over him yet, and maybe one of her old plans to stir his interest might work this time around.
With the help of her best friend—Mike’s sister—and his younger brother, she’ll prove she’s more than woman enough to handle him. His dominance, his kink in the bedroom, his huge, hot body. But just when she thinks they can make a go of it, he pulls back. She can’t do it anymore. Loving, being hurt, loving, being ignored. This time if Mike wants her, he’ll have to prove it. She’s done. 
And he’s just realized he might have made the biggest mistake of his life in pushing her away...

My Review:

***Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.***

Maria is what you could call almost obsessed about Mike and even though it is cute, in the beginning it is a little creepy lol. I do love how she goes about doing things though and find her enthusiasm refreshing. You also have to give kuddos to the bff who not only helps her with her plans all the time apparently but also supports Maria when she needs picking back up. The book begins with the two ladies being teens and picks back up when Mike has returned home and Maria is older. Maria has it in her mind that she is going to be over Mike. Why want someone that doesn't want you back...right? Then there is a family dinner and things begin to change. Mike has always tolerated Maria having a crush on him, he thought it was cute, but now that she seems indifferent to him, he is beginning to see her in a different light. When he overhears a very steamy conversation between Maria and her date he almost blows a gasket. 

This is where the book begins to get steamy and sexy and oh so hot!! I always love Marie Harte's way with words in her love scenes. Those alpha males are usually so typical and yet with her books she gives it just that bit of edge that is different and sexy. I love these characters and the way we have a glimpse into their lives, and I cannot wait to read the next book. After a glimpse at what is to come I am almost quivering with anticipation. Overall I would rate this book in at Four Stars!!!

Against The Cage (Worth The Fight #1) by Sidney Halston

In her Loveswept debut, Sidney Halston turns up the heat as a sexy cage fighter shows a former bookworm how delicious a few rounds between the sheets can be.
For Chrissy Martin, returning to her Florida hometown always seems to bring bad luck. The day starts with a breakup text, followed by a jailhouse phone call from her troublemaker brother. Now a routine traffic stop has ended with her accidentally punching an officer . . . in a delicate place. Then Chrissy realizes that the hot cop on the receiving end of her right hook is none other than the man from her teenage fantasies.

Jack Daniels knows how to take a hit. After all, when he’s not chasing reckless drivers, he’s kicking ass in a mixed martial arts ring. So what takes his breath away isn’t the low blow, but the woman who dealt it: a gorgeous knockout with legs Jack wouldn’t mind being pinned under—who just so happens to be his best friend’s nerdy little sister, all grown up. Soon their instant chemistry leads to a sizzling affair, but Jack and Chrissy are fighting an uphill battle if they want to make love last beyond the final bell.

My Review
I loved the beginning of this book lol. Not only was I laughing my butt off but you could already feel that yummy chemistry building. Although I must throw in right away how ignorant I feel that Chrissy's brother is and overall I didn't care for him until the end....which may have been the author's intent. I love MMA and all that alpha maleness that leaks out when you watch the guys fight. I wanted to read this book as soon as I read the tite of it. I was highly upset with Jack for his little white lie, which I will not go into details about, but when you read it you will know what I'm talking about.  I really wish the book could have been longer because I know for sure I would still be reading it just to get more. I didn't want it to end. I loved the characters and the story that was layed out for us. I would love to read more by this author and in the future I am sure I will. Overall I would rate this book in at four stars!!!

But with her Hawaiian honeymoon fast approaching, she has to face her biggest fear...water. She can't swim. On her way to her first swimming lesson, however, she veers left instead of right and nearly runs over her hot, new swim instructor. 

Caution: Rising Waters...

Liam Caldwell has put his life on hold to look after his sick mother. The last thing he needs is the hit-and-run brunette who ruined his motorcycle disrupting the adult swim class.

No U-turn...

With each lesson, Becca discovers that what looks good on paper isn't making her happy. Should she play it safe in the shallow end with her career and fiance'? Or should she dive into the deep waters with a man who offers passion and freedom like she's never imagined?

My Review

***I received a copy of this book in return for my honest opinions***

This was such a cute book. I love the main female character and the things she is willing to go through to learn how to conquer her fear and learn to swim. I wish back in the day when I learned how to swim I had someone as good looking as she does though lol. From start to finish the book keeps you entertained with the conversations between certain characters make you laugh, and get angry on their behalf. I have to admit that this book was just the cutest thing I have read in such a long time and that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am rating it in at four stars because of some of the things that happen between certain people that shouldn't happen until there is a breakup no matter how much it was much deserved.

The Park of Sunset Dreams (Dare Valley, #6) by Ava Miles


USA Today Bestselling Author Ava Miles of the #1 National Bestseller NORA ROBERTS LAND presents a fun, emotional, heartwarming romance about finding happily ever after…in a dog park.

“I am adding Ava Miles to my list of always reads like Susan Mallery, Jill Shalvis, Kristen Ashley, and NORA ROBERTS.” Marjay's Reading Blog

Jane Wilcox has a secret. She’s been the incognito poker scout to a rock star poker player dressed as a smoking hot poker babe. Now that role is over, and she’s living in small town Dare Valley, working as a dog walker—or so everyone thinks. Without her Jimmy Choo heels and Prada gowns, she’s trying to find her new sexy Inner Swan and a fairytale romance, but she’s afraid she might have turned back into “Plain Jane” until she meets Matt Hale in the dog park.

The sexy lawyer has a rambunctious dog that needs her Dog Whisperer skills and slowly they move from friends to lovers. Matt is one of the good guys, a hero, totally boy-next-door material. He’s returned to his hometown after experiencing a tragedy. He was unable to find justice for the woman in his last legal case, and now she’s passed away and given him her dog. He’s vowed to give Henry a good home and right the wrongs in the system, so he’s running for mayor of Dare Valley.

Jane and Matt fall in love during sunset walks in the dog park, but soon Jane’s secret past comes back to haunt her and harms Matt’s bid for mayor. Can Jane and Matt’s love survive the controversy?

My Review

***"I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own."***
I have read some of Ava Miles's books in the past and although I have enjoyed them I never loved them really. After reading this book though I love her. I'm one of those readers that have to get into what they are reading and feel some kind of connection to the characters. I felt that right away with Jane, she has given up her alter ego and her slutty looking clothes that went along with the job she was doing with her friends. She and her best friend work with a professional card player to analyze other players and the way they play. During this job she and her friend dressed up to look completely different to appear as no threat. Still watching the dogs that belong to her former boss she meets Matt and his very rambunctious dog. He has noticed her before but when she uses her Dog Whispering powers to help him out he begins to see her more. When she finds out he is planning on running for political office she freaks because that could mean her past will come out to be known. Even though she has come to love him will she be able to deal with this whole mess? Read it and see!!!! 


Holden Walker has put his personal life on hold to help Rebel Walking with security on tour. His ‘all work and no play’ attitude has him in trouble with some of the new female family members in his life.
Lainey Douglas couldn't pick a good man if her life depended on it. She’s been burnt one too many times and isn't thrilled at all when she's tricked into a date. Her attempt to run him off almost works—until he has to save her from danger.
What happens when Holden meets the most frustrating woman in his life? Will Lainey stop pushing him away long enough to see that he's not like all the other guys? Can she open her heart after everything she's been through?

My Review

*** I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest opinions***

Normally I can get into BDSM, not in my personal life, but reading it I get the attraction to it. I have read the Inside Out Series that go along with this and I really enjoyed them. These stories in the journal are very seductive and erotic. I loved reading things from her point of view as well as the bonus that is in his point of view. It took me awhile to read all of this but it didn't take me long to get into it. Although I did enjoy it there were times I didn't feel the connection I need to feel to really, really enjoy it. There really isn't much I can tell you about the book that isn't in the description, it really is just something that needs to be read on your own. Overall I would rate this book in at three and a half stars so i'm going to round it up to four stars. 

Forbidden Surrender ( Surrender #1) by Priscilla West

First off before everything, I wanted to apologize for not having my reviews up when they were supposed to be up. I have been having laptop troubles and have just now gotten it back in semi-working order. I will be posting my backlogged reviews and trying to make amends to everyone who has been waiting for them! Excuses are unacceptable but some things cannot be helped. Thank you!


"What gives you a thrill Kristen?"

The minute I saw Vincent Sorenson, I knew he was trouble. Billionaire. Bad boy. And dangerously sexy. He was everything I craved, and nothing I needed. 

Unfortunately, I couldn't just avoid him. The higher ups at my company decided they needed his business, and I was on the team to bring him in. Vincent Sorenson didn't seem as interested in business as he was in me, but I knew that was a door better left unopened. If I got involved with him, it would only unearth the pain I spent years trying to bury. 

I thought I had it under control, but I seriously underestimated Vincent's seductive charm and silver-tongue. I would soon find out how delicious it would feel to let myself fall into this forbidden surrender.

My Review

***I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest opinions***
Starting at the beginning I really enjoyed the banter between the two characters, I had a serious dislike for Richard and the way he treats people...makes me wonder how he even has clients. When Vincent and Kristen meet there is instant chemistry that she fights since she is there on business, but it is hard for her to deny the way he feels when she is suddenly held in his arms after a clumsy fall. I must admit that he is very persistent and doesn't take the word no seriously.  He has it in his head that she shouldn't be so concerned with him being a client and just go with it and even offers to show her what she is missing out on lol. I love her best friend Riley, she is a hoot. When she finally agrees on a date with Vincent I was smiling wondering what was going to happen.  I'm not sure I liked the way it ends, but I know it is just leaving it open for the following book. Overall I would rate this book in at three stars.
