  Identity (A Villainously Romantic Retelling Book 3)

the tough choices are what makes life

Years ago, I was the scape goat for a very powerful man and his six sons. I managed to escape and build a quiet life for myself. When the opportunity arose to help others in similar situations, I took it. Now, I’m known in the streets for my talented hand in forgery among other things. Almost anybody a person wishes to become, I can make it happen, well, with the help of my two best friends.

Arsuilla. Survivor. Savior. I answer to them all. Oh, and voice stealer. I swear, throat punch a guy one time and it’ll stick with you for a lifetime.

Life is looking up until the six sons find me. At first I fear they’ve been sent by their father to drag me kicking and screaming back to him. But I soon come to realize, I’ve got more to fear from Anderson, Alejandro, Abraham, Atlas, Alek, and Aric. Like losing my heart to the six brothers.

This is a Villainously Romantic WhyChoose Retelling with some chuckles, several fearless stunts, and enough determination to rival the sea.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

*Clapping*  The Little Mermaid was my girls favorite Disney movie so I was super excited to read this book.  I mean everyone hates Arsuilla AKA Su.  She has left everyone she loves and everything she knows to keep the ones she loves safe.  She is now helping others who left with nothing on their backs.  She says she wished she had someone helping her when she escaped so she is returning the favor with her talents. When the guys some back Arsuilla freaks but soon starts to remember and fall for the brothers.

The scenes with the br0thers are Bow Chicka Wow Wow reads for sure.  ANNNND Of course since it’s a RH series you can’t pick just one and thank God you don’t have too.

This is a great addition to the series of anti-hero books!!

#NewRelease #RH #AntiHero- Cruelty (A Villainously Romantic Retelling Book 2) by K.B. Everly

Cruelty (A Villainously Romantic Retelling Book 2)

The devil is in the details.

At least, that’s what I, alternative clothing store owner and animal activist, Ella Devlin, have always believed.

What should’ve been a simple B&E into the corrupt kill shelter to release all the animals, turns out to be not as simple as I imagined. Everything becomes a bit spotty.

Not only do I now have a pregnant Dalmatian refusing to leave my side, but I’m also facing the wrath of the shelters owners, Nita and Robert Darling, who will stop at nothing to retrieve every last animal released.

I can’t let that happen.

I may have grown up with the label of the heartless bitch, since I’ve never had the best of attitudes and tended to avoid people like the plague. But no one has ever gotten to see the real me hiding beneath.

With the help of my hot—yet womanizing—partner in crime, Theo, and my sinfully, sexy exs, Luca and Rollins, who run the animal sanctuary that’s aiding me, maybe I can succeed in stopping them. And in the process, show the world that just because the word Cruel is on my clothes, doesn’t mean it’s on my heart.

*This is a Villainously Romantic WhyChoose Retelling with tons of laughs, lots of lust, and quite a few spots*

I loved this book.  Look I am a dog loving chick so I have never EVER like Cruella but this book made me rethink my hate!  LOL  I mean who thinks its ok to wear dog fur as a coat??  Uhm EWWWWW

Ella and her crew are a great sexy read for anyone to set down with on a cold night *wink*.  I love how by the end of the story it made me look at her in a different way.  The novella was too short because I could have enjoyed a few more chapters. I love the way KB changed my opinion of Ella and her story.

She can be found (or not found) hiding from her tiny human so she doesn’t have to share her snacks. Usually it’s in the closet. What free time she has is used fighting with Malegficent, her prosthetic leg, or stuffing her face with copious amounts of coffee and candy as she types away on her next book.

Then Comes Marriage: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 4)

I’m so close to the finish line…but will my future be everything I hoped for?

We’re down to the last two men vying for my hand, and what had seemed to be every woman’s dream has become a wretched nightmare. These men who’d seemed perfect for me, compatible in every way, are deeply flawed, and now I’m questioning if I even want to spend a lifetime with them.

But now it’s too late. I’m locked in, and so I now have to hope for the lesser of two evils and pray that I can turn it into a match made in heaven…

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Holy wild ride for us and Claire!!! SO this book ends and we are not sure who is staying in the final 2 guys or who is out…..I am kinda stunned actually by the 2 who remain and the one who was voted out because I SURE would have dumped one over the other.

Claire has a LOT happening in this book.  She goes on mini dates, a trip away date and 2 final dates while all wondering “WHAT IS GOING ON???” and “WHO WILL AMERICA PICK?”  I mean even I was stunned at who America was picking….

We learn a lot about our final two suiters…one thing for sure…neither can keep their pants up for long when Claire is around *Snickers* Ya’ll this is national TV!!!!??? Your mother is watching!!!

When the book is ending, Claire gets some “NEWS” and well, yeah, her opinion about things is soon twisted and leaves her feeling not so happy with the show.

I loved how we get to see the rational for the people who were cut when they were cut.  It made me and Claire understand the why for most everything.  Most of all, I loved the final scene!!!  I loved who she ended up with even if he wasn’t my 1st or 2nd pick!!  He was truly the BEST pick for Claire.

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point? (

First Comes Loves: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 3)

Can one woman possibly fall in love with more than one man at a time?

My name is Claire Seaburg and I’m an aspiring actress. You haven’t heard of me yet? Just wait. You will soon. You see, I’m in the third week of the new reality television show Matchmaker. It’s getting tough, because we’re down to three men—and I’m afraid I’m falling in love with them all. Will the man I end up with truly be the right one for me?

Or will I wind up in hell with the wrong guy?

Watch me as we get one week closer—and I do a few naughty things I just might regret…

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

ANNND Another one bites the dust.  Was I sad to see my favorite guy go?  YUP but doesn’t that always happen in those damn reality TV shows.

So we are now down to 3 dudes and TBH they gotta work for Angie to be all #TeamNewDude…LOL

SO Claire is a bit sad to see my boy go and the other 3 guys start to put the moves on for her attention.  ALL of the guys sneak some alone time with Claire in their own ways and can I just say…one of the ways is super hawt!!!

The host, Cat, I have my eyes on and I am curious what the guys say during their confessionals that Claire isn’t allowed to see that makes the TV audience vote the way they do.

Cat gives the guys a test and we see right away who is really listening to Claire and who is just trying to get her attention with muscles and flirting.

As always we are left wondering who is going to be cut in the final round and who will be the final 2 guys.  Since the last book will have the winner, I am super excited.

My thoughts on the final guys….

1 He is in it for the money the guys win

  1. He is in it to “Win” the competition. Claire is just a prize at the end.
  2. I am not sure but MAYBE he is my new #Team but he has some issues to work on

Man Oh Man.  #TeamGray alllll day long ladies!!  I claimed him in book #1 and I am still all day long loving him.  After reading this book if you are not on #TeamGray them I don’t think we can be friends…I mean…I totally dreamy sighed at him in a scene in the story…..yup dreamy signed.

Gosh so I don’t know how to do this review without giving away the spoiler of the guy who got cut …so I am gonna be a little vague on some of the specifics.

Spencer is still a raging dick and I hate him. I kinda wonder if Cat the producer is banging him anyway…..gross.

Gabe who I thought might be a cool dude kinda shows some not so good qualities about himself……????  Master Manipulator kinda like Spencer??

Thomas…still a raging douche canoe and I can’t stand him….Yeah when you get more info about him…gross and no thanks…..

Darius….Well Mr. Tall Drink of Water…..I really am wondering why he holds his cards to close to his chest and yet I really like him.  But I got the spider tingles at times and wonder what is really going on there???

*Que the birds chirping* Gray……Yup he is my pick,  If Jade tricks me and makes him some major under the covers asshat, I will be sending her major text messages and threaten to no longer be her friend!! LOL

Claire loses a guy in this book, guys have a challenge, and she goes on dates with the guys again.  When the books ends we are finding out who will stay and who might be leaving in the reality show………..

Seriously I loved this next book and m dying to see who stays and who goes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I received this book from the author f ran honest review.

WHUT!!  Jade is writing a RH.  When did this happen and how did I NOT KNOW? Those were my first questions when she asked me to read this book for her.  I LOVE RH.  I know they aren’t for everyone but hey that’s cool.  I am a HUGE fan and was totally stoked to jump right in.

So raise your hand if you like The Bachelor or the Bachelorette? Well them this my friends will be something you will also love to read.  Claire is an actress who agreed to be on this kinda dating show.  She will be living with 5 men for 4 weeks and at the end, hopefully she will have a hubby, dream house and career in Hollywood.

We get to meet all the guys right away when they have dinner in the house.  Lemme say, I have my favorite already and ones I can’t stand already…..#TeamGrayson alllllll day long!!  #TeamCutSpencer allllll day long.  We are jumping right into challenges to win time with our single lady Claire.  When the winner is crowned she still gets alone time with the other guys but in a much shorter time span.  We see all the guys and love each one for a different reason…ok I didn’t love them all but yeah that is just me.

Right when we THINK we know what is going to happen we are given news that the “winning” guys gets cash?  HRMMMMM???  But the biggest WTF moment was when we learn Claire doesn’t get to “give a rose” to the dudes she wants to keep…no my friends the studio audience picks! GASP!  So crazy!!  But I will add I have serious concerns about our TV Host Cat.  I see Shady town written alllllll over her face!!!

I can’t wait for the next installment of the series!!  I have my fingers crossed that the studio audience hears my cried of #CutTheDB about Spencer.

#WOTR20 #Review #NewRelease #RH #PartOfASeries #Novella – Logan (White Trash Trilogy) by Brandy Slaven

Logan (White Trash Trilogy)

Logan Rowe has had his fair share of waiting. Between age differences and growing up, he’s been as patient as love is supposed to be. After years of chasing Ryleigh, the time has come. She better buckle up for the ride, because he’s not stopping now until he finally claims her. Heart and Soul.
This is the first contemporary novella spin off from the RH White Trash Trilogy, which does not have to be read first, though the character cameos will make better sense if it is.

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

SHUT UP!!   GAH THIS BOOK!!

I have loved reading the side story of Ry and Logan since the very first novel.  Those two are something fun and crazy.  They needed to finally stop pushing and pulling and just communicate.  Logan is ever the ladies man, or is he?  Seems he has been pretty twisted up over his sister-in-law’s bestie for a long while now.  Ry has been head over heels in love with her brothers friend since childhood but the cocky and arrogant guy just cant figure out how to win her heart.  Ry isnt a huge fan of cocky and arrogant!!  LOL

This novella was the perfect HEA to their story.  I gotta tell ya I loved it . Logan is a lot deeper than I think I gave him credit for and Ry is a lot more determined to have her own perfect love.  I sooo loved seeing Kendall and “The Quad” for a few scenes but the focus on the Rowe boys was perfect.  I am sssssuper excited for the other Rowe brother books as well.

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I am like a Monica super fan.  I love how she can turn classic lit into modern stories.  When I saw she published this naughty little number I grabbed it because I haven’t really ready anything of hers that is over the top naught plus its RH….SOLD!!

This story is about the love triangle of Caden, Winter and Aurelia.  Caden and Aurelia are the first couple to hook up but when we get Caden in the story it makes the duo a much stronger triumvirate.

The scenes are super hawt and very yummy to read if you want a sexy fun novella then this is it for you.

The 2nd story in the book is an addition to Aurelia’s harem of men with the addition of Abel.  He wasn’t the most honest of men when he approached our trio so when everything happens, we learn a lot more about this group then before.

I would love to read more from the story and hope Monica can write more.  Abel wasn’t in the boo klong enough and I REALLY want a Caden/Winter SCENE!  JUSY SAYING!!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

GAH!!!  This book.  I had no clue its paranormal and so when the elements hit I was like WHAT!!  How did I miss it?  #SlowBrain

Our girl Ariel has had a bad life.  A drunk, stripper for a mom who only cares for Ariel if she can get something from another or pour her another drink.  Honestly Ariel is more of an annoyance then anything.  When her mother moves her and Ariel to a new town to be a live in “Companion” she is forced to adjust to a small town where everyone knows your business.  The towns people are not too thrilled with her mom sooo the kids in High School are not too friendly with Ariel.

On her first day, she runs smack in to the town hottie with an attitude named Tyson.  The two are thrust into each other’s path all day long.  She leaves and is pretty much hating life.  One day two everything changes and Mr. Rude becomes Mr. Friendly.  The two form a strange friendship.  Their friendship is now joined by a pair of twins who happen to live with Tyson and his brooding uncle Quint.  Oh yeah and they happen to be Ariel’s neighbors.

As the story unfolds there is more to Ariel then just a pretty girl next door and her new friends are keeping some big, crazy secrets from her.  The guys attraction to Ariel is off the carts and so is hers to them but that isn’t normal, right?  I mean you can’t be attracted to them ALL can you?  Then there is the brooding and cranky uncle who is not that much older than her who keeps checking her out and her him…so as you can tell…LOTS OF CHEMISTRY!!!

This book was sooooo good.  I didn’t stop once I started.  The beginning of the story keeps you invested because you feel for Ariel but then as the story unfold, DUDE YOU CAN’T STOP!!!!!!!!

#WOTR19 #MMMF #RH #ReverseHarem – Sterling by Cheryl Dragon

Sterling New Year (Men of Alaska, #1)

Melody’s stuck in Sterling, Alaska over the holidays, sewing custom dresses for her friend’s wedding. She’ll do anything for her friends and is determined to be the best maid of honor she can be. There are just a few very sexy distractions.

Dale, Jason, and Ryan are lovers with an eye out for the right woman to complete their family. They’re happy to let Melody use space to make the dresses, but Dale especially doesn’t expect the perfect woman for them to show up in their small town. How are they going to explain Sterling’s unusual relationships. Even so, the trio is definitely interested in more than simply helping out with the wedding but can they win Melody over?

Melody has never been anywhere like Sterling—where group relationships are a tradition. She can’t pass up the experience of three hot men in bed but rearranging her life for them, or any man, is a ridiculous idea. Normal marriages don’t last and she’s had repeat wedding dress clients to prove it. What the quad has is more than sex but they have a lot of baggage to sort through for her to make it a Sterling New Year.

I bought this book.

I have found a new genre that I love called Reverse Harem.  SO when I saw this book and this author was listed as a RH series I jumped.

This book is about Ryan, Dale and Jason.  They are all in a relationship but looking for the right woman to fill out their needs.

Enter Melody to the little town in Alaska.  She is coming up early to help her best friend Isla before her wedding.  As soon as she steps foot in the town, the men are prowling but our trio has already put a claim on her.

The guys can see that Melody is the right woman with her sass and spirit but she is not about to be stuck cooking and cleaning for one man let alone 3!!  The guys take the time to get her to understand that they want her for her and not for her maid service.

They slowly begin to chip away her icy thoughts towards a ménage style life and look to the men to be everything she could ever want and more.

I liked the story and was able to sit and get it read in a couple hours.  If you are looking for a spicy afternoon, give this series a try.
