Alrighty then!! It has finally come to a close and I must say even though the story has substance and a good storyline I am happy it's over. It was a whirlwind of emotions and attitude as well as so much drama that wasn't even nesessary. I still do not care for Alice and I feel like she is a total bitch most of the time.  Mick has grown on me but still has problems expressing himself. I honestly feel that if they were real and in a real relationship they would combust in a matter of months. There is no way that relationship is going to last,  there are too many misunderstandings between them for it to work. Anyway. ...I have fished the trilogy and am excited to begin something new.  Overall I'm rating this in at three hearts.

Mick can’t figure out where he’s gone wrong. Alice needs something that he still can’t figure out how to give. And when it matters most, will Mick find a way to be there when she falls?

Alright...things have become clearer since the first book. This book is dedicated to filling is in on what happened to cause the break. I am not so confused anymore I am happy to say lol. I also have to say now that I think Alice is a drama queen and Mick is a bit of a dick! She kind of overreacted to something he did then he made it worse by not talking to her and when she finally called him he didn't answer...causing the major rift between them. However I still say she's being a bit of a drama queen about the whole thing. I do understand that when she needed him he wasn't there, but he didn't hear his phone so maybe she should have called someone else to get him or just to get her. The whole situation just blew up I'd say. Overall I'd rate this one in at three hearts .

Don't Deny Me: Part One by Megan Hart


He’s back, and the heat between them cannot be denied…

Part One of Don't Deny Me, the passionate new e-serial novel from bestselling author Megan Hart.Alice and Mick had it all: the happy days, the heartfelt evenings, the hot, slow nights. But Mick couldn’t give her what she needed, and in a moment of crisis, they lost everything. Torn apart, Alice tries to pry him out of her life and move on—until a not-so-chance meeting at an old friend’s party brings them face-to-face once more. Now they’re talking again, Alice can’t escape the burning in her chest whenever he’s near, the way his eyes still follow her around the room…but she won’t repeat the mistakes of her past. Passion alone is nothing to build a life on. Or is it?

Ok....I was so confused while reading this that I almost put it down and said forget it!  I finally got through it and even though I'm still a bit confused I have to admit to more than a little curiosity as to what the heck happened in the past!! I'm not sure that I like the little note sections from Mick to Alice and visa-versa, because I believe that added to my confusion.  I can see sort of where the story is going so I'm going to rate it in at three hearts.

Starstruck (Bluewater Bay #1) by L.A. Witt


Hollywood is full of dirty secrets, but Carter refuses to be Levi's.

Retired action star Levi Pritchard has made a quiet life for himself in the sleepy logging town of Bluewater Bay, Washington. But then Hollywood comes to film the wildly popular television series Wolf's Landing, and Bluewater Bay isn't so sleepy anymore. His retirement doesn't stick, either, because he's offered a part on the show-exactly the kind of complex role he'd always wanted, one that would prove him more than a glorified stuntman. The only catch? He has to stay in the closet-no matter how attractive he finds his costar.

Carter Samuels is the critically acclaimed male lead on Wolf's Landing. And now, the man who inspired him to take up acting-and made him realize he's gay-is joining the cast, and sparks fly between them instantly. But Carter is out and proud and determined to stay true to himself.

Remaining just friends is the only thing to do, as both the studio and Levi's disapproving, dysfunctional family keep reminding them. Except their friendship deepens by the day, tempting them with what they can't have but both desperately need.

My Review 

* * *  I received this copy from NetGalley and the publisher in return for my honest opinions. * * *

I love coming out books when done right and done with a good storyline.  This was a cute story and I was glad when things turned out the way they did. 

We start out with our main character Levi and we meet the horrible man named Finn who is trying to get Levi to sign a contract to be on a show. At first he doesn't want to but he is reminded this was a part he would be proud to play. While touring the set he sees Carter and when they meet face to face later it practically seals the deal for Levi. 

Carter had been crushing on Levi since he was younger and when he lets Levi know that sparks fly. But while their friendship is just beginning Levi is basically told if he comes out his career is over. Not sure what to do he pushes Carter away and is heartbroken when Carter meets someone else. 

I personally loved how the book turned out in the end, even though I would love to see Finn put in his place. The author should add a bonus scene with that lol. Overall I'm rating this in at four hearts.

Stepbrother Billionaire by Colleen Masters


I’ve hated him since middle school. 

The effortlessly popular, lacrosse superstar, beautiful, blue-eyed nightmare Emerson Sawyer. Funny thing is, he didn’t even know I existed until our senior year, when his mom started hooking up with my dad. 

Now he torments me in the hallways, calling me “Sis” whenever he gets the chance, relishing in the fact that I can’t hide my blushing whenever he’s around. Even though I can’t stand him, my body betrays me—and he loves it. 

Emerson and his mom just moved in with us, and as if crushing on him wasn’t weird enough, now our bedrooms share a wall. 

The sexual tension keeps building between us, but I know nothing can ever happen…especially now that our parents are engaged. I try to tell myself that I hate him, that he’s wrong for me, that we’ll never be together… 

So why did I agree to play Seven Minutes in Heaven at his girlfriend’s high school party? 

And why does Emerson suddenly have my panties in his hands? 

Stepbrother Billionaire is a Stand-alone novel. It contains adult themes, harsh language, and graphic sexual content.

My Review  

The description  of this book grabbed my attention  enough for me to request  a free copy to review. I was lucky enough to receive  one and I immediately  began to read it. I loved how the story began but in the beginning  I felt like Emerson  was a dick lol. I wasn't sure he was  going to be a character  I would come to like. Now while this description  does do justice  to the beginning  of the book it doesn't even begin to touch on what the rest of the book is about. I do wish they would rewrite  that a bit, but otherwise  it's ok. 

Now on to Abby....I'm not a big fan of  her character  but I understood  her to a point, I just really wanted her to grow a backbone! There was one point when she is talking to family I was seeing red  and yelling at my Kindle lol. Then finally some backbone  came out and I almost cheered lol. She seemed to come around the last chapter though. 

Overall I enjoyed  the book, even though my connection  wasn't that great with the characters   and I am rating this book in at three hearts.

Never Close Enough (The Never #1) by Anie Michaels


The last thing Ella Sinclair needed on her birthday was a cheating boyfriend, a broken heart, and a dead car battery in a remote beach town. At her greatest moment of need, a protective and sexy Porter Masters comes to her rescue. Ella takes a holiday week at the coast to discover herself and finds her attraction to Porter potent and undeniable. Uncertain of their future together, Ella struggles to open her heart to trust again. 

Porter Masters takes care of his own: his single mother, his company, and now he’s compelled to protect the beauty that walked into his world. Never one for relationships in his past, Porter discovers that he was waiting all along for Ella. As their time together comes to an end, will Porter fight for the woman who stole his heart? Porter will find a way to keep her, despite the obstacles.

My Review 

I had never read any of Anie Michaels books before, when the other day I saw she was doing a takeover on a FB page I follow.  While reading about her and watching her interactions between readers and non readers I found I really liked her. When I saw she gave an opportunity for those who had not read her books to read one for free I signed up excitedly.  After receiving said book I began reading...and reading....and reading..and...well you get the picture lol. I absolutely fell in love with the characters!  

When Ella finds her boyfriend with the yoga slut I wanted to punch the crap out of that idiot, when she left I cheered her on. When she met Porter I think my panties melted a bit lol. Granted their first encounter was a little different than I was expecting, I really liked their banter. When things heat up and her sister starts saying she is wrong I was like.." Um excuse me? You know what now?" I was ready to dislike the sister but eventually I changed my mind.

I really don't want to give away too much but I have to say if you don't like major cliff hangers don't read!!! I totally was unprepared for this one however I loved the book! I will certainly be reading more by this author and I'm super excited I got the chance to read her work! I'm rating this book in at Five Hearts!!

Never a Gentleman ( The Hunt Club 5) by Heather Boyd


Victor Knight has never been able to juggle his work and love life to anyone’s satisfaction. A hardworking investment banker in London, he’s obsessed with maintaining his clients’ privacy and profits, and cannot understand why those same clients are withdrawing funds when he’s making them a good profit. When a dull evening supper at the Hunt Club ends in a blunt invitation to have sex with the Earl of Beecroft, he welcomes the distraction on the proviso they never discuss his business affairs. 

Daniel Wellham, the Earl of Beecroft, has long admired Victor Knight. He even understands and admires the banker’s preoccupation with work. Their night together is everything he hoped it would be and while he longs for permanence, his secret life as a spy means he can never reveal too much of his own history. Unfortunately, when he realizes that all is not right in Victor’s life, those promises he made to keep his nose out of the banker’s business means he cannot offer to help or explain that his latest mission might take him away forever. How can love and trust be possible when duty and responsibility prevent total honesty? 

My Review 

* * * I received this copy from NetGalley and the publisher in returnfor my honest opinions. * * * 

This book was completely different than I was expecting but in a strange turn of events I actually liked it lol. I love Victor's personality and Daniel is so exiting!  The story has some excitement and adventure in it you wouldn't suspect so get your copy today and get to reading! I'm rating this in at three hearts.

Don't Close Your Eyes (Bryant Brothers #1) by Hilary Storm


My life ended the day I answered the door and found out James had died. Writing has become my only release and secluding myself from the people who constantly judge me for my way of grieving has made me famous. I'm not ready to love again, in fact it's not even a thought. 

Someone needs to tell that to Liam. He's breaking through all of the walls I've worked so hard to create. How can one man be so intriguing? He just gets me, maybe a little too well.

My Review 

***I received this ARC from the author in exchange for my honest opinions. ***

I was super excited to receive this copy from the author,  I have every book by her and love her Rebel Walking series, so when I heard of a new series I could barely contain my excitement!  She has continued with the great work by introducing us to the sexy Bryant Brothers, they are hot, they are strong and they protect those they love....what more could you want! 

I felt do sorry for poor Olivia and the loss she feels for her deceased husband.  When she meets Liam it's quite amusing the way things begin. After they have an incredibly explosive meet up,  that was when things started getting really interesting.  Her friend Michael starts getting on my nerves with all his questions and then Liam confuses me with the way he acts...At first I wasn't sure if I was liking the way things were going. Then the bomb dropped and I couldn't stop reading and wouldn't have even if my house was on fire lol. Let me just say wow!! I may not have seen things coming the way they do, but I will say it made for an extremely great book! Overall I'm rating this in at 5 hearts!!

Destroying Beauty (Hell Hounds Motorcycle Club): Vegas Titans Series by Celia Loren



I’m only 25 years old, too young to have already been married and divorced—hard to believe it’s been a year since my piece of shit ex-husband left me, my soul broken, my bank account empty…at least his family’s lawyers let me keep my beat up old Corolla. Just when it seems like my life can’t get any worse, and my heart can’t possibly take another ounce of pain, fate comes crashing down on my head. The last thing I need is to get involved with another dangerous man… 

The wrong place at the wrong time is an understatement. I just witnessed two men get shot in the face—for no reason—and I can’t go to the cops because they’re in on it. I’ve never been more scared in my life, I have no money to run away, no family that can help. I’m the sole witness to a double murder, and I’m all alone except for him … 

One of my psycho brothers just executed a member of a rival MC and an innocent shopkeep in plain sight, and didn’t even bother to check the place for witnesses. At least he was smart enough to grab the security tapes, problem is there was a smokin’ hot little thing huddled at the end of the aisle, and I’m sure she saw everything. 

This girl may be the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on, and her body…fuck me. But there’s one problem, she can bury me and my club, and I can’t let that happen. Women are a dime a dozen, and I’ll never let a good lay get between me and everything that I live for. So I’ll do what I do best—make her beg for it, make her need it… 

And then I’ll put a bullet between her eyes. 

**This Contemporary Romance Novel contains adult themes, violence, and sexual content. Fifth Book in the Vegas Titans Biker Romance Series. **

My Review 

**I received this copy in exchange for my honest opinions. **

The book started out with so much action and excitement at first I was shocked then I was so enthralled by the story I couldn't put it down. When Jo witnesses the crime, she is so scared and didn't know what to do. I felt like given the situation she sis the right thing. When we learn the MC is involved in a way and Holt has to get info from Jo I knew things were going to get crazy! 

First of all I have to say I am so addicted to MC books, I just love reading about the lifestyle.  This book was almost calm feom half the books I've read on it lol. I loved it though, all the characters are awesome. ..even the bad guy lol. I love the names so of the guys have so inventive on the authors part. I will be reading more by this author soon I'm sure.  I'm rating this in at four hearts! 


Christmas With The Laird by Scarlet Wilson


It's official - for Juliette Connolly Christmas is a bust and she's definitely not in the Christmas spirit. She's been dumped by her boyfriend and replaced by a younger model. Then a clause in her contract means she and a mysterious colleague have to work over Christmas. But there's much more to Andrew Campbell than meets the eye. Especially when it turns out he's the Scottish Laird of the haunted house they're filming in.

And it seems like there's magic in the air in the remote snow-filled setting. The local village contains a cast of Christmas characters and even though the boiler in the drafty house is broken the temperature is definitely rising.

Maybe Andrew and Juliette are about to be sprinkled with a little Christmas fairy dust?

My Review 

***I received this copy from NetGalley and the publisher in return for my honest opinions. ***

This was such a cute read! It had such a wonderful storyline that at times really touched my heart.  I only wish it had been longer lol. I really live the work they do, I find myself watching those kinds of shows frequently in fact and I never know if I believe it or not. I know there is something out there but sometimes those shows just seem to freak each other out and make more out of something than there is. I really loved the moment Juliette had in his brothers room with him as well as by herself.  It was cute watching them forming the connection they gave with each other. I'm rating this in at four hearts!!


Caress of Darkness: A Dark Pleasures Novella (1001 Dark Nights #12) by Julie Kenner


From the first moment I saw him, I knew that Rainer Engel was like no other man. Dangerously sexy and darkly mysterious, he both enticed me and terrified me.

I wanted to run–to fight against the heat that was building between us–but there was nowhere to go. I needed his help as much as I needed his touch. And so help me, I knew that I would do anything he asked in order to have both.

But even as our passion burned hot, the secrets in Raine’s past reached out to destroy us … and we would both have to make the greatest sacrifice to find a love that would last forever.

My Review

***I received this ARC from the author in exchange for my honest opinions. ***

I was lucky enough to receive this ARC from Julie Kenner and couldn't be more thrilled!! I love this author and have all her books. When I started the book I had high expectations and she didn't disappoint. From the beginning Raine’s and Callie have an explosive chemistry that draws you in and keeps you guessing at what could happen next. When we meet Raine he has come to Callie's fathers antique shop looking for an amulet.  When Callie sees him she feeld more of an attraction to him than anyone she ever has before. When he first sees her he feels the connection in a major way and when he hears she knows nothing of this amulet and her father has had a stroke he is concerned for's really sweet lol. I don't want to tell you anymore because I don't want to give anything away but I will say the first major encounter between them is so freaking hot you will need to fan yourselves. The story line is so interesting you won't want to put it down.   Overall I'm rating this in at 5 hearts!!!
