📚Series Review: The Pandemic Sorrow series by Stevie J. Cole

Pandemic Sorrow Series by Stevie J. Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series was way more than I could have expected. I don’t think I’ve ever met characters so broken. Jag’s story was filled with so much pain it literally shattered me. Rush’s story was much different than Jag’s yet so similar. Where Jag tried to numb life, Rush tried anything and everything to just feel something. Stevie J Cole gives fair warning. These novels do describe lots of drug use…but that’s what made the stories so real for me. It may not be for everyone, but these characters would not have been so amazing or their HEAs would not have been as fulfilling without experiencing their struggles along with them.

Roxy’s story exhibits a lot of strength for having grown up around drug abusers which made her the perfect person to help Jag find his way. Her story gives more of her background for those that want to understand her better. Personally, I feel the author did an amazing job in bringing so much life to her in the first book, that I totally understood her and where she was coming from. I adored her tough facade and completely related to her lack of desire to be around people, her preference to isolation.

📚Review: The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely [Enter Lauren Blakely’s HUGE Giveaway]

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes a new and sexy romance…THE KNOCKED UP PLAN! A standalone romance told in dual POV, THE KNOCKED UP PLAN is about all of the fun, hotness, and heartfelt emotions that come when a single woman asks her gorgeous, jaded, sworn-to-be-single-forever good friend to get one particular job done. What happens next when he agrees to provide the bun for her oven are lots of hot sexy times and heartfelt moments.

The Knocked up Plan by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ahhhh! Lauren Blakely never disappoints. I fall in love with her characters so easily. Her stories always make heart pitter patter, awe and swoon! The Knocked Up Plan was no different.

The premise itself was enough to intrigue me and once I started I couldn’t stop (I even fell asleep on my couch around three in the morning because I didn’t want to pause my reading). Nicole and Ryder shared such amazing chemistry and I enjoyed every bit of their time together.

Co-workers and practically “sexperts” with their own radio shows, they each have their own take on relationships and sex. Of course, it’s completely opposite. Nicole hasn’t felt the sparks of love and Ryder was burned by it, so the advice they give their listeners is on opposite sides of the spectrum but it fit perfectly with their personalities. What adds so much to the story is the friendship they share. Nicole and Ryder get along very well and hang out together like buddies. She’s sexy but also the kind of girl the guys love to hang out with and Ryder is gentlemanly and pretty hot to look at.

So when Nicole thinks it’s a great idea to use Ryder as a sperm donor instead of the faceless names on a list they both figure it’s a great idea. Ryder is all for it. He can finally give in to the attraction he’s had for her and won’t be tied down once it’s all said and done. Of course we all know that’s not how it works out.

I just adored this story and it’s characters. They made me laugh and melted my heart. They both had so much depth that made them that much more real to me. That’s something I get with every Lauren Blakely book I read. Word after word is pure entertainment and fills this reader with absolute joy!

Review: Love Sprung From Hate (Dark Romeo #1) by Sienna Blake [Enter the Release Day Mega Giveaways]

Love Sprung From Hate by Sienna Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was such an amazing modern twist on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. With the bit of a mafia feel to it, it reminded me a bit of the 1996 movie version. It was such a great story that pulled me in from the start. Sienna Blake put such a modern twist on such an incredible classic and then topped it off with bonfire level heat.

Roman Tyrell was born into a one of the most powerful families of Verona and it’s underground (allegedly), but he’s much more than his family name and its reputation. He won my heart from the get-go. I just wanted to hold him, kiss him and keep him…never let him go. He was sexy and dominating but there was a gentleness in him that lies deep beneath the surface. He’s plaqued by his family and reputation and meeting Julianna was like a light at the end of the tunnel that gave him hope.

Julianna Capulet has a career she loves. It’s he whole life. By following in the footsteps of her father into law enforcement, she’s set on making her dad proud by being the best detective she can be. So after unforgettable time spent with a man that rocked her world and left his impression on her soul, she’s at a cross roads. To find out that man is a Tyrell…well, she’s in a tough spot which just add so much to the story and keeps you reading to find out what happens next and how it’s all going to end for them.

This was a great story with amazing heat and I can’t wait for July 13th to find out what comes next. Love Sprung From Hate is a great start to this suspensful series!

FAVORITE QUOTES:
The second we’d touched, it sealed her fate.

I wanted her like I’d never wanted a woman before.
I would have her.

He was more beautiful than I remembered. A dark god among mortals.

She had made me feel like I could be different. Because when she had gazed up at me, her honeyed hair spread across the pillow, her soft body naked and open, she gave me a reason to be different.

“You’re playing with fire, little girl.”
“I like the flames.”

📚Review: Going In Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys #4) by Carly Phillips

Going in Deep by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have been waiting for Julian and Kendall’s story since the beginning. This made me so happy!!!

NOTE TO READER: Going in Deep would be more enjoyable if you’re familiar with Jualian and Kendall from their time together in Kade and Lexie’s story, Going Down Easy.

I have wanted this book since meeting Julian and Kendall in the first book of the Billionaire Bad Boys series. There was just something about them that stood out for me. They were both troubled amd made plenty of mistakes that ended up hurting people they cared about, but I knew deep down there was so much more to them and why they were the way they were at the time. The more appearances they made in the following books, the more I could see that their story wasn’t over. I could feel that longing from them both.

I knew, I just KNEW they were bound to get their happy ending and as Kade, Lucas and Derek each got theirs, I prayed and hoped that I would get to see Julian get his. I wanted him to find his redemption and get that peace he so wanted. And sweet Kendall. She deserved so much after having struggled for most of her life. She was bound to land on both feet and find her path in life. I can’t even tell you how happy I was to see them find their way back to each other and rekindle the feelings that were underneath all that turmoil and pain that was left in the wake of their first go around. They both showed so much growth and it was evident they were ready to start over and be the person the other needed them to be. The support, forgiveness and understanding they gave to one another was just beautiful.

Going in Deep gave me the ultimate closure.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
Apparently it had taken one brown-haried, blue-eyed vixen to get under his skin, make him look in the mirror and come to terms with the man he’d become.

“We all make mistakes,” she insisted, her pretty blue eyes begging him to believe.
“We all make choices,” he immediately correcter her.
She inclined her head. “Whatever you want to call them, we’re still entitled to forgiveness.”

“I didn’t think we’d be back together like this,” he said in a gruff voice. One that held a hint of gratitude, too.
“Me, either.” She sunk her hands into his hair at last.
“I won’t take it for granted.”

“Maybe it’s Karma reaching out to bite me in the ass,” Julian muttered. “I used her, hurt her, and now that I can’t live without her, I might have to.

📚 Review: Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay

Duke of Manhattan by Louise Bay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I became a Louise Bay fan after reading King of Wall Street. Since then I have fallen madly for each of whom I’ve dubbed her Big Apple Hottie. Each male character has made my panties melt with the confidence and power they just ooze. Their alpha tendencies head my blood and each book has provided me with a rush that just turns me on.

All that said, Sam nor Max held a candle to how much Ryder affected me. Maybe it was the British accent. That alone would cause my undergarments to instantly desintegrate. Maybe it was his cool and calm demeaner that just screamed sexy without him even trying. Or maybe, just maybe it was the passion he had for his company and the love he had for his family and that he was willing to do the one thing he swore he’d NEVER do to save it all; which turned out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to him.

Scarlett was so easy to like. She was a girl’s girl and so confident, intelligent and had no fears in the bedroom. She owned her sexuality without ever being slutty or fake. Her sexiness was so natural it made it difficult for Ryder to ignore and resist the easy and comfortable connection between them.

Ryder wasn’t looking for love. He enjoyed the variety of women that have been around all his life. He loved sex too much to settle for just one woman his whole life. But being around Scarlett was so easy that his usual facade would practically disappear (just like my undies). The transformation in Ryder was so gentle yet exponential. He was always a good guy, but Scarlett made him that much better.

Scarlett was such a tough cookie all on her own. She’s had a failed relationship and the only thing she loves is her company. It’s become her purpose and helped her move forward after her hearbreak. She holds just as much passion for her company as Ryder does which is a shared trait that adds to their connection and is why they were both willing to go along with the agreement.

What I loved so much about this couple was that things were so easy with them that they never really had to pretend when it came to affection. It was all so natural that they had to remind themselves that it was all fake but they were only kidding themselves. It was obvious to everyone else how NOT fake things were between them. They were just so freaking cute.

I can’t NOT mention their steamy moments. Those two had some seriously nuclear level heat between them. That bedroom action was H.O.T!… but I’ll leave it at that so you can find out for yourselves.

This was such a great book and I can’t wait to ready more from this author.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
The memory of her face, her hair, her body – it had all stayed with me in a way that I wasn’t used to. It was almost as if we’d known each other longer than just a few hours. She’d touched me like she knew me.

If I was going to fake-marry someone, I could have done a lot worse. Scarlett King was clever, beautiful and f*cking fantastic in bed.

“Clean enough?” I slid my food from his hand, braced my hands on the side if the bath and stood. “Because I want to get a little dirty.”

F*cking Scarlett King was my new favorite thing to do. The more sex we had, the better it got – and it had been pretty damn good to start off with.

“Whatever it is that you’re afraid of, I’ll stand between you and it my whole life,” he said.

“But I’m scared of us. Of me. Of my choices. Of losing you.”

“You’ll never lose me,” he said.

I’d never have a problem kneeling before my duchess, but there’d never be a time when I wasn’t in charge when it came to her orgasm.

From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood…for the best joy ride of your life.

But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She’s fiery, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous, and I’d really like to know what makes her engine hum.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

 NMST Review ←

Henley Rose and a hot car go together like peaches and cream, like fine Scotch and a long, dirty night. Which means working with her was like walking into the Garden of Eden every single day. It was a test of willpower because the woman could craft a car as if it were an erotic dance.

Not a striptease.

Not an in-your-face pelvis thrust.

But a beautiful fucking ballet of a woman seducing machine. Those hands, the way she wielded tools, the intensity in her focus—it was sensual, and it was sinful, and it was this man’s fantasy made flesh.

Imagine what it was like working with her for one, hard-on year.

I mean, hard year.

I survived the challenge because she had talent to spare. And I never treated her differently because she was a woman, or because I thought about her naked an obscene amount of the time. I treated her like anyone else—specifically, all the people I work with who I never ever imagine in anything less than full-on Siberian winter garb, complete with the thermals and Michelin Man coat.

“Black heart still intact.” I tap my sternum. “Same model as before.”

“I’d have thought you’d get an upgrade by now. Faulty parts and all.”

“No recall needed on the ticker. It works just fine in this cruel bastard.” I say, reminding her of the words she’d uttered the day she stormed out.

She arches a brow. “Shame. You should have let me replace it. I’m good at making all sorts of clunkers run better.”

Jesus Christ. She still takes no prisoners. “I’ve no doubt you have all the tools to fix anything, and if you couldn’t find the right one, you’d use a blowtorch.”

She adopts an expression of indignation. “There’s nothing wrong with using a blowtorch,” she says, taking extra time on the first syllable.

How the hell did I ever last with this woman? Before I can even fashion a comeback, she taps her toe against the tire on Wagner’s car. “I see you still like to make your cars with big, manly wheels.”

I roll my eyes then make a give it to me now motion with my hands. “All right, Henley. Deliver the punchline.”

She bats her lashes. “What punchline?”

“Big? Manly? You’re going to say it’s some sort of compensation thing going on. That’s what you always said about the guys who wanted the biggest cars with the biggest wheels.”

She smirks. “Was I wrong in my assessment?”

I laugh. “I don’t know. I didn’t check to see how that added up for them.”

“Nor did I. My focus was always on the work.”

“As well it should have been.”

“That’s what you taught me.”

“I’m glad you learned that lesson.”

“I learned so many lessons from you.”

📚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.
