📚Review: The Bohemian and the Businessman (The Story Sisters #1) by Katy Regnery – ONLY 99c thru Sunday!!

The Bohemian and the Businessman by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved every Blueberry Lane character Katy Regnery has brought to life with her beautiful storytelling, but I don’t think I could have adored any of them more than I did Priscilla Story and Shane Olson.

I’ll admit, I didn’t even pay attention to the blurb. If it’s from Katy Regnery, it’s an instant buy. I have yet to read a story from her that I just didn’t love. So when I started reading The Bohemian and the Businessman I didn’t know what was in store for me. And in my opinion, that’s just the best way to go. Sure the blurb gives the premise, but going in blind is so much more enjoyable. At least it is in my opinion.

Anyways, throughout the series, we’ve heard a little about the Story sisters and I was so pleased to finally get to know the Story family. I kind of feel like Priscilla Story is my spirit animal. She was so free-spirited person and stuck out like a sore thumb in her uptight family. I was just as amazed as Shane was that even with the distant relationships with her siblings and the mysogonistic cretan she calls father, she’s managed to remain so bright. Even having been hurt in the past, she still looks at the beauty in the world with eyes wide open. It was so refreshing.

Shane Olson couldn’t have been more opposite if they from different planets. Her laid back, come what may attitude was something he had no room for in his life. He had a mission. His only goal was to work his way up the ladder and become CEO of Story Imports. He’s worked hard over the years toward that goal. He had tunnel vision when it came to his ambition. He wanted the security and luxury all that hard work would grant him. Coming from a dairy farm, he knows what tough times feels like and there is no one that will get in his way of striving for a life completely opposite from the life he left behind.

Oh, could he have been so wrong. Seeing those two together was just… awwwww! I don’t know how many times my heart melting when they had their moments when all pretenses were gone. They may have been completely different on the outside, but it was like they shared the same soul. Their wants and needs may have manifested differently throughout their lives to make them who they were, but there was no denying they were perfect for one another.

I don’t know how she does it, but every time I read a story by Katy Regnery I feel physically feel it in my heart. The flutters, palpitations, the warmth. I honestly have a physical reaction to her characters and their journeys.

This story was absolutely beautiful, sweet and charming! Another WIN in my book.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
Priscilla was primal – a storm, a tornado, a wild thing, the very definition of distracting. She wasn’t sensible. She wasn’t predictable. And she definitely wasn’t convenient.

“I barely know you, Priscilla, but what I do know feels…wild. Too wild. Agreeing to anything having to do with you feels reckless. In too many ways to count.”

Had she misjudged him? Underestimated his experience? Was he a stiff businessman by day and some sort of closet sex fiend by night?

He was-just as he’d been the first night she saw him again several weeks ago at Forrester- an anchor in her stormy world.

He wondered if the sun set inside of Priscilla every night, safe there until morning, making her vibrant and warn from the inside out, leaving enough of its powerful rays behind so that she could shine all day long.

He’d never really seen her coming…and then, one day, he woke up and she was his everything.

📚Review: Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wasn’t like them. What I did was different. I didn’t take only what was meted out to me. I decided who and when and how. I wasn’t encouraging promiscuity. I was promoting personal choice. No one should be judged for their preferences, whether you were a rap duo into threesomes or a drummer who preferred to be in charge.

The moment I read the blurb for Rock F*ck Club, I immediately added it to my TBR. It gave me thrill to see that the character was going to turn the tables and reclaim her control by doing what men do all the time, without judgement. But nothing could have prepared me for what this story actually delivered. There’s no way I could have predicted the direction this story takes or how it would have left me feeling when I made it to the end.

Michelle Mankin wrote a story that touched on feminism, strength, independence, sexual adventure and self-discovery. Raven Winters’ journey took me on an incredible adventure. What started out as a way to get back at her cheating boyfriend turned into a viral movement that nearly spins out of control yet puts Raven on the path she was meant to take.

Rock F*ck Club was filled with lessons learned, love, passion, friendship, family and growth. I’m still a bit numb from the story…only because I can’t exactly put into words how I feel right now. But it left me with a sense of freedom, elation and peace. Kind of how I’d like to think Raven would feel if she was three dimentional.

I’m not going to go into any detail regarding the road Raven travels, becuase I truly think you should experience it for yourself. But don’t be deterred by the percieved premise of this story. I’m sure, like I did, you’re thinking it might be a raunchy yet fun rockstar romance like others out there but it wasn’t anything like that. YET, there is still plenty of heat and steam to keep your sheets warm and panties damp. I definitely recommend this book!!

FAVORITE QUOTES:
“From this day I voe to be uptight no longer. I’m going to ‘Kumbaya’ and give into my wild side, and you’re going to document it. It’s time to shake things up. It’s time for a new way of doing things. It’s time for women to be the ones in control.”

“Please think carefully before you make your choices. Sometimes control isn’t all it seems to be. Sometimes it’s just a matter of knowing who you can trust to get you safely home again.”

Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. His eyes beamed like twin spotlights exposing all my deepest darkest secrets.

“Raven,” he made my name a puff of air before he pressed his lips to mine and set my entire f*cking world on fire. Cold to combustible. Ice to Inferno. A blaze that he stoked as he moved his mouth persuasively over mine. Clinging to him, my hands over his, I decided that all the kisses I’d had before had been executed by amateurs.

An emptiness inside of me longed to be filled. To be taken. To surrender to this madness between us, and let it consume us both.

“Mark me.” I lowered myself to my knees on the carpet watching him in the window. He stood behind me like some kind of primordial god.

📚Review: Dirty Thief (Dirty Players #4) by Tia Louise

Dirty Thief by Tia Louise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dirty Thief was a wonderful addition to the Dirty Players series. I really enjoyed getting more Ava. She wasn’t as prominent in the series as Zelda, so see her growth and maturity in this story was great.

With suspense brought by Ava’s returning past and duties expected of the Quenn Regent, Ava has quite a bit on her plate, but she loves it. Having spent her childhood dreaming of being a princess or being saved by a prince, she’s living her dream life and couldn’t be happier. From the previous books, she was always being protected by her sister, Zelda, and came across as fragile. In Dirty Thief, she was able to shine on her own and show her true inner strength. It was brilliant.

What I enjoyed most was that no matter what duties awaited, Rowan and Ava managed to keep the heat level in their lives turned up to max setting. Her innocent, sweetness kept Rowan extremely turned on and by just her mere presence, he was set to blow. Ava’s submissive side was eager to please and she was always willing to ease Rowan’s stress from the day. She was a great wife.

I enjoyed the suspense, but I didn’t quite understand how the events played out. Rowan and Ava were the monarchy of Monagasco, so why mere threaths to Ava’s security weren’t treated as such just baffled me. There were moments where I just pictured Rowan, Ava, Zelda and Caleb as the Scooby Gang. They way they planned out ways to try and catch the villian just seemed a bit pointless. Nonetheless, it all worked out and I really enjoyed the story.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
I’ve found my happily ever after, and I’ll be damned if I let some lowlife asshole take it away from me. The fist of anger, the survivor will of iron that has always been inside me roars to life.

Warm fires of love and bonding flow between us. She’s passionate and perfect. She’s my fire and ice.

📚Review: Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5) by Tillie Cole

Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I get when my precious Hangmen return. Each story is gripping. Filled with emotion, passion and plenty of action and suspense, I get everything I could possibly want in a story. I couldn’t have imagined what I would get from AK’s tale and the emotions that flooded me were truly intense.

AK or Xavier Deyes started out as a bright eyed boy that looked up to his big brother and wanted to follow in his footsteps. After years in the military, he finds his way to the Hades Hangmen MC. Just like the other men of the club, he too, has a past that haunts him, but he’s always been one of the jovial ones that keeps the mood light. But everyone has their days and he’s approaching his.

Determined to save the red head, Phebe, we met toward the end of Rider’s story in Deep Redemption, he finds himself revisiting all the pain of his past as he helps Phebe recover from the life she lived and the trauma she endured.

With new foes and an even more twisted villain, the Hangmen have their work cut out for them; but to see AK and Phebe both support each other as they heal from present and past wounds, it was absolutely beautiful.  The connection they shared wasn’t just in the attraction and pull but it was also a shared sense of guilty.  Not having been able to protect the ones they loved dearly. That failure has left a mark on them that they recognize in each other.  It was sad, yet beautiful.

Each story progresses in the timeline for the Hangmen while giving us a new and refreshing look and the guys and their women. Tillie Cole even gives us a peak and Flame and his growth; which is exponential from his story in Souls Unfractured. I can tell that there is so much more to come from these guys and the bad guys they come up against. I just know it’s going to be even more amazing and nail biting.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

For the first time in a long time, I didn’t feel so f*cking alone. All because of Red.
Red and her f*cking face of freckles.

“AK . . . I want you . . . to ownme.”

“I am at peace.” Her eyebrows furrowed. “Does that make sense? That you bring me peace?”
“Yeah,” I said and, as I watched her face, I realized she did the fucking same to me. “You give me peace too.”

“I love you, Xavier Deyes. I love you more than I knew was possible. You are my grace. You are my redemption.”

“The devil’s man with the angel eyes.” I breathed. He breathed. We kissed. Broke apart. “The damned souls who together found grace.”

Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, April 25th)

EXCERPT
It was one of Maverick’s favorite dreams.

He and Alexa had gone up to Swallow Falls in Western Maryland for a weekend getaway and were staying in one of the mini cabins at the state park. After a day of hiking and swimming and picnicking outside, they’d come back to their cabin tired and ready to crash, but getting naked for showers had sidetracked them for hours. And even once they finally fell asleep, Maverick was hard and ready every time he woke up, and he took her again and again, falling asleep still buried inside her . . .

And fuck if he wasn’t ready right now.

He burrowed his face in Alexa’s soft hair and banded his arm around her stomach. His hand filled with the soft mound of her breast. He pulled her back against his chest and ground his erection against the swell of her ass.

“Maverick,” she moaned.

Hell, yeah. He nuzzled her neck, kissed her there, tasting and nipping and sucking. God, he needed in her. “Fuck, Alexa,” he whispered.

Her hand gripped his. “Maverick.”

He rolled her under him and crawled on top of her, his body falling into the cradle of her spread thighs.

“Uh, Maverick.”

He frowned and kissed her jaw, her cheek, her mouth. It was the kiss that did it. Something wasn’t right. The memory playing out in his sleep-fogged mind didn’t feel like the reality confronting his physical senses. His eyes blinked open. And he found himself lying on top of Alexa. Not in the cabin at Swallow Falls years before. In the gray morning light of his house. Her wide hazel eyes stared up at him.

He reared off of her in an instant. “Fuck,” he said, coming to stand by the couch. Alexa looked stunned—and so fucking sexy that Maverick barely resisted crawling back on top of her. She lay on her back in his clothes, on his couch, her knees drawn up and falling out, her hair sleep-mussed and sexy. Jesus. He adjusted himself, unable to hide his raging hard-on, and scrubbed at his face. “Goddamn dream. I’m sorry, Alexa. I didn’t mean to do that.”

“You . . . you were dreaming. Of me?” she whispered.

His gaze narrowed. “Don’t ask a question you don’t want the answer to.”

📚Review: LEGALLY CHARMING (Ever After #1) by Lauren Smith

A workaholic lawyer comes home during a Halloween party and finds a princess sleeping in his bed. Find out what happens next in LEGALLY CHARMING, first in Lauren Smith’s newest #contemporaryromance #newadultromance series, Ever After!

✯✯✯✯

A charming and sweet romance!

Felicity Hart and Jared Redmond are from different worlds and at different point in their lives. Felicity is an Art History Grad student with dreams of being an art curator in a well known gallery/museum. Jared is a workaholic attorney working on the partnership path.

But one night he finds a princess in his bed and it all changes for the both of them. They have great chemistry and find a comfortable ease with the other person that allows them to release and be themselves where they aren’t able to otherwise. Felicity helps Jared enjoy a slower pace in life. He love of art opens him up to new things and teaches him to enjoy those things he would have normally ignored. For Felicity, having him in her life gives her a boost in confidence. Being young and having spent her every available moment studying and working, the nerd in her finds a new zest for life when she realizes that sexy Jared has his eye on her.

Aside from building a fast and easy friendship, they find that their attraction is something that is propelling them in to uncharted territory. Jared has never had to juggle work with a personal life and Felicity’s young and fragile confidence has trouble accepting their budding relationship.

I found it a bit hard to connect with the characters on a level beyond surface appreciation for their story, but it was an enjoyable romance. It follows a similar format as many contemporary romances, but was a good story to enjoy when dealing with a book hangover or looking for a quick read. I’ve been a fan of Lauren Smith’s other works and this one was much “softer” than the others I’ve read. It was different but was just well written as the others.

ABOUT THE BOOK

THE RIGHT DRESS CAN CATCH THE EYE OF PRINCE CHARMING…

Felicity Hart has one goal: Completing her masters in art. Falling in love isn’t part of the plan. She reluctantly agrees to attend a Halloween party with her best friend. After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen. Eyes that belong to the one man who could turn her well organized world upside down. When he flashes that wicked, panty-melting smile at her the vow to not fall in love seems impossible…

EVERY PRINCE IS LOOKING FOR HIS SLEEPING BEAUTY TO KISS…

Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy.

WHEN MIDNIGHT STRIKES AND COACHES TURN TO PUMPKINS…

Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been?

I turn into the kitchen. She pulls a tray from the oven and smiles. She still wears the date outfit, but the heels are gone. She’s adorable in her fancy dress and bare feet.
“Date ended early?”
She nods. “When he invited me to see his gerbil, I thought it was time to go.”
“That doesn’t entice you?”
She shakes her head. “Had he said ferret, perhaps. Alas, with gerbil I’m a firm no.”
“Was it in his pants or a cage?”
“We didn’t get far enough to find out. I said thanks, I need to water the plants, and I got the hell out of Dodge.”
I curl up the side of my mouth. “Guess that explains why Trish didn’t invite me home, either. I tried the hamster line on her.”
She smacks me with a panda potholder. “I suppose I should have known better, though. Earlier in the date, he made a ton of masturbation comments.”
I lean against the kitchen counter. “And that concerns you, since you never do that, right?”
As she slides the spatula under the dessert, she gives me a side-eye stare. “Exactly, Chase. I never rub one out. Never.” She waves a hand over her crotch. “Total hands-free zone.”
I take her comment seriously. “Fine. You use toys. I get it. What kind?” I ask, because I can’t help myself.
She rolls her eyes. “Not telling you.”
I harrumph and grab for a bar from the pan. She swats me with the spatula.
“Ouch,” I say, yanking back my hand.
“That didn’t hurt. And you should know better than to steal my dessert before it’s ready.”
“You should know better than to hit my hands.” I hold both up in the air.
With a quickness I don’t see coming, she whacks me again with her utensil. This time on the other hand.
“That’s it.” I charge her, tickling her waist. “Tell me what toys and I’ll stop.”
She cracks up and flails her arms, knocking me with elbows and hands and the spatula, too, until I give in to her cries for mercy.
I stare at her in our tiny sliver of a kitchen. “Waiting.”
“You really want to know?”
I nod eagerly. I’m playing with fire, but I can’t resist. The desire to know outweighs all else.
She works the spatula under the bars again, shaking her head. “I can’t believe we’re having this conversation.”
I hold out my hands. “C’mon. We talk about all sorts of stuff.” Then, an idea strikes me. I open the kitchen cupboard, grab a bottle of Patron, and hold it up. “This will help all that shyness.”
She stares at me with narrowed eyes. “I’m not shy at all.”
I grab two shot glasses and pour. “Better safe than sorry, Miss Not Shy At All.”
I hand her one, and she takes it. Then I raise my glass, and the drink goes down the hatch with a burn. She follows suit, swallowing it quickly, then sets her glass down. I do the same.
I rub my palms together. “Toy confessional time. What have you got?”
She arches an eyebrow. “Really? You really want to know?”
I narrow my eyes. “What part of your roommate being a dirty bastard do you not understand? Obviously, I want to know. I’m a guy. This is like Christmas morning. But if this helps . . .”
I pour two more shots then slide her glass over to her. Once more, we down them.
She draws a deep breath. “Since you asked . . . I have a few toys. A little silver bullet. A bigger dolphin. And I have a waterproof finger vibrator.”
And the temperature in me shoots through the roof. I tug at the neck of my shirt. “For the shower?” I croak out.
“Seeing as we don’t have a bathtub, yes, it would have to be for the shower.”
“You masturbate in the shower?” I ask, and the visual is so fucking clear in my mind—Josie under a hot stream of water that slopes off her breasts, a finger vibrator working between her thighs.
She nods as she slides the bars onto a cooling rack. Just then I remember she promised me seven-layer bars when she freaked out the other night. And she delivered. Fuck, I think she might be perfect, what with her desserts and her shower hobby.

ABOUT THE BOOK
ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas**

There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister sleeping with his mother.
Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.
Bear North, ALFA’s resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy’s mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.
When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?

Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas.

divider line review logo★★★★
DAMN!! Bear and Fran proved that age is just a number. They could give the younger peeps a run for their money. They were fricking smokin hot!!!

Bear lost his only love years ago and spends his days working at ALFA PI and nights with random women. He has a past and a reputation that follows him, so when he volunteers to help their current investigation by questioning Morgan’s mother, Fran… Morgan is none too happy. He doesn’t want the man anywhere near his mom and warns him at every turn. Though Bear assures him that all will be on the up and up, he can’t get rid of the fact that deep down, he’s always been curious what Fran hid beneath her daily tracksuits.

Bear and Fran showed me that at their age, they could go at it just as much and as fiercely as the young couples I read about. Bear had serious stamina and beneath the grandma style Fran hid behind, she was a sex kitten with an insatiable drive that Bear was all to willing to assist her with.

They were adorable for a mature couple and just as sexy as any other Hero and heroine I’ve come across. Their story was a great addition to the ALFA PI series and I look forward to so much more. Especially the way it left off.

📚Review Spotlight of JADED HEARTS (Loaded Replay #1) by Harper Sloan

todays spotlight read
jadedhearts_frontcover_loresJaded Hearts by Harper Sloan
Loaded Replay #1
Release Date: December 13, 2016

ABOUT THE BOOK
Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world.
It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.
Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.
Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.
Happiness…that feeling is a joke.
In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.

Jaded Hearts will kick off the Loaded Replay series – which will be a series of interconnected standalones. The cast and crew of Jaded Hearts was introduced to us for the first time briefly in Unexpected Fate. You do not need to read that book in order to fully enjoy Jaded Hearts. Happy reading!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

1-im-wrenlee-d-final

Jaded Hearts was a wonderful start to Harper Sloan’s new series, Loaded Replay. An alpha security expert and a fiery, feisty rockstar… What more could I ask for??

Jaded Hearts captivated me the moment I read the Prologue. By the time I began Chapter One, I knew what I needed to know to start the journey Penelope was about to embark on.

modernrock_loresWrenlee Davenport is the pixie lead singer of Loaded Replay, the band that is filling up stadiums around the world and only growing bigger in popularity with the masses. With her twin brother, Weston, and their two long time friends, Luke and Jamison, she makes music and lives life on the road touring and performing the music they love. But she’s reached a point that no matter how many people she’s surrounded by, she’s still lonely. The allure of he state and audience no longer holds that sparkle and rush she loved so much. But when her very protective and loving brother Wes, brings on extra security, Chance Nash brings about what is missing her life to bring that all back.
2-insane-life
Chance was introduced to us in the Home Town series as Cohen’s roommate and best friend. With Jaded Hearts, he gets his chance at love. A former special ops marine, he was hired into Corps Security back in Atlanta. Guilt from failure, in his eyes, he jumps at the chance to take on a job that will take him out of town and away for some change in his life. And the moment he steps into the same room as Wren, that change is evident and strong.

I loved Wren’s feisty boldness. She was so adorably cute and loved by her brother and band mates. She was humble and funny and was exactly what Chance needed to counteract his rough, military edges. There was a definite transformation from his first appearance to the ending but never lost his alpha tendencies and extreme protectiveness.3-chance

Jaded Hearts was a GREAT start to a new series and Harper Sloan has always been one of my automatic oneclicks. She fails to disappoint in her storytelling abilities and Chance and Wren are just two more characters I have fallen in love with. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Review Spotlight of WATCHER (Rebel Wayfarers MC #9) by MariaLisa deMora

todays spotlight read review logo ✯✯✯✯✯

I’m not even sure how I can articulate my feelings after reading this book. Each story in this series continues to leave me at a loss for words. Maria deMora doesn’t just tell me a story, her writing allows me to LIVE the story.

One thing you can never say about one of her novels is that she lacks character development and growth, but her knack of encompassing an entire life story within the pages of each novel allows for me to not only fall in love with her characters and their story, but embeds them into my heart…permanently.

Watcher took me on a trip to the backwoods of Kentucky and allowed me to watch a young boy turn into an honorable, well respected man that would be a devoting and protective husband and father. Someone that everyone looked up to and earned the respect of every man he met.

The road through Watcher’s life was filled with loss, heartache, sadness, love and passion. What this man went through and overcame nearly broke my heart. I just don’t even know how to properly convey the emotional roller coaster I experienced. And it’s not surprising to me. This author has a talent for leaving me speechless after reading a RWMC novel.

I love this characters, their stories and more importantly their bond with one another. They not only grow in strength as individuals, but as a club. Their ever growing story line with that is woven within each of their stories connects them all on such a deeper level.

Though it’s possible to read them alone, you truly won’t experience their stories on a level where you can truly enjoy them if you don’t read them in order. I HIGHLY recommend reading them in order so that you can follow the entire story.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Watcher is known in the MC community as a man with strong beliefs. His sense of honor has been built in him from childhood, forged in the mountains of Kentucky, rooted there by family and circumstance. In the ever-changing world of outlaws, he’s made a place for himself, winning a seat at the table for negotiations and decisions that impact not only his club, but those around him. Powerful men ask for his counsel, revealing a trust and respect that can only be earned. His family loves and supports him, too, and he protects his wife and children with a fierceness that consumes. Enemies loom on the horizon, because for every man he calls brother, there are those who would take everything from him.
