#ReleaseDay – Falling Hard by Lexi Ryan


Title: Falling Hard
Series: The Blackhawk Boys #4
Author: Lexi Ryan
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: May 23, 2017




An NFL player with a secret past, and the one woman with the power to turn his world inside out…
Former actress Emma Rothschild is partying in Vegas in disguise. But I’m not fooled. Five years ago, I knew that body better than my own, and I haven’t forgotten a single detail—not the curve of her hip beneath my hand or the hitch in her breath when I kiss her neck.
When Emma’s unexpectedly left alone in Sin City, I agree to spend the weekend with her. As friends. Why not? If I can knock down the toughest guys in the NFL, I’m strong enough to keep my hands to myself, even if she is the sexiest woman I’ve ever met.
Emma is part of my past—years so shrouded in secrets that not even my best friends know the truth about who I am. I’m a single dad now and not interested in revisiting my old ways or trying to win back the only woman I ever let close enough to break my heart.
But this is Vegas, where all bets are off, and with Emma, nothing ever goes as planned…

“You’re too beautiful,” I tell her. I run my thumb along her jaw. “Too fucking beautiful.”“I’ve missed you. You’re the best man I’ve ever met.”

My stomach clenches and I shake my head. “Don’t think that. It’s a lie. It’s what I wanted you to believe. Don’t bring that lie into tonight.”

“How was it a lie?” She grins up at me, and I know a full confession would erase all the happiness from her face.

“When we were together before, I wasn’t the man you thought I was. I wasn’t good.” It’s the closest to the truth I’ve ever given anyone about my past.

“So you don’t want me believing you’re good?”

I pull her hips tightly against me as I exhale in frustration. She still thinks this is some kind of joke. “I’m different now, but then…”

She lifts onto her toes and flicks her tongue against my ear. “Don’t be so different. I like you a little bad.”

I groan and stop dancing. I don’t know how much longer I can do this without diving over the line. “Is that permission to stop being your friend?” I’m obsessed with knowing if she tastes as sweet as I remember. And if I swipe my tongue over the sensitive spot beneath her ear, will she gasp like she always did?

She shrugs and grins, and the dance floor tilts off balance. It’s crowded, and we’re surrounded by writhing bodies, cocooned in the crowd. I turn her in my arms so her back is to my front and settle my hand against the soft skin of her midriff. She arches her back and rubs against me.

I sweep her hair to the side, and when I press my lips to the long, smooth column of her neck, she trembles against me.

“Are you okay?” I ask against her ear. “Is this okay?”

“I—I’m not sure…”

“Tell me what you want. Not five years ago. Not tomorrow. What do you want right now?”

She reaches back and threads her fingers through my hair to guide my mouth back to her neck.

I don’t hesitate. I kiss and suck on that tender skin while we move to the beat.

The rest of the room fades and one song blurs into the next. A waitress comes by selling shots, and I buy two, one for each of us, and we lock eyes as we throw them back. At some point, I’m vaguely aware of Bailey checking on me, but my focus is one hundred percent on Emma, on this night that takes me back to when I was eighteen and so fucking in love it hurt. Tonight, Emma isn’t the woman who once broke my heart. She isn’t the girl who wrote me off with a simple goodbye note and apologies I didn’t want. Tonight, she’s a dream, my fantasy in the flesh, my reward for surviving the hardest year of my whole life.

When her face begins to blur, I realize I’m way more drunk than I ever intended. I need to sober up or I’m not going to remember a minute of this night. “Want to get out of here?”

She nods, takes my hand, and leads me out of the bar and down the hall to the elevators. My watch reads a quarter past two.

“Let’s get some food,” I suggest, but at the same moment, an elevator dings and the doors slide open.

Emma grabs my hand and drags me inside. “I don’t want food,” she says, punching a button.

I spin her around and press her against the wall. “What do you want, Em?” I drop my hand to her side to skim my knuckles over her skirt, and she widens her stance to part her thighs. “Fuck,” I whisper. I shouldn’t do this. Not here, not when any moment someone could join us on the elevator, not when we’re both so damn drunk it’s a wonder we can stand upright. But shouldn’t is so much weaker than want, and I want to touch her more than I want anything right now.

I’m faintly aware of the soft beeping of the passing floors as I slide my hand up her skirt and cup her between her legs. She gasps, and I rub my fingers over the damp lace of her panties, teasing her swollen flesh.

When the elevator stops and the doors slide open, she grabs my wrist and holds me still. “Please,” she whispers in my ear. “Please. Don’t stop.” Then she tilts her hips and rocks against my hand. I couldn’t refuse her if every person in the hotel was watching us.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken returns with a smoking-hot story about the satisfaction of plotting revenge on your ex—until he turns your world upside down again.

Austin Rogers’s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her—as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex’s downfall—but so does kissing him.

I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.
Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once. In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.
That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone. I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough.
I was strong and determined. 
I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.
But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.
How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right. 
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Tempted by the Wolf (Fated Mates 6) by Alicia Montgomery

***In the exciting conclusion to the True Mates Series, Lone Wolf Meredith and powerful warlock Daric fight their growing attraction for one another. ***

Lone Wolf shifter Meredith is trying to make the next ten years of her life pass by quickly. After being caught trying to steal from the New York clan, she’s sentenced to servitude to them for the next decade to make up for her crimes. But, when she gets assigned to guard their prisoner, the handsome but dangerous warlock, Daric, things suddenly become complicated. She knows he’s their enemy, and possibly evil, but she’s having a hard time controlling her attraction to him.

Now that he’s is finally free from the evil mage Stefan, Daric has one single goal: the destruction of his former master. He’ll do anything to kill the mage who ruined his life, even if it means working with the New York clan and their alpha. However, his desire for his beautiful Lycan bodyguard is a distraction, one he can’t afford. The she-wolf is proving to be too alluring, and he’s craving for a taste.

When Meredith’s past comes back to haunt her and she’s left hurting, Daric can’t help but offer his comfort and assistance, especially when all roads lead back to the mages. Will he lose his head and his heart to Meredith, or will she prove to be the one weakness that could destroy him?

Tempted by the Wolf is a full-length (75,000++ words) werewolf paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series. Though not necessary, I recommend you read the rest of the books to understand the world and the main plot.

True Mates Series Reading Order:

Fated Mates (Book 1)
Blood Moon (Book 2)
Romancing the Alpha (Book 3)
Witch’s Mate (Book 4)
Taming the Beast (Book 5)
Tempted by the Wolf (Book 6)

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

I hate to see a great series come to a end and unfortunately this is it for the Fated Mates series. If anyone could end this series with a bang it would be Meredith. When we first met her she was breaking into the Fenrir corporation and Grant, as the New York alpha, had sentenced her to 10 years under his command instead of sending her to the lycan prison. As a lone wolf she was not happy to be stuck in one place for so long, but she would take it over prison.
She became besties with Jade, the super smart lycan scientist who found her fated mate in Taming the Beast, and Lara, a super powerful witch who found her mate in Witch’s Mate, both employed at Fenrir. She is a total smart a**, has no filter on what comes out of her mouth, and I love her!! I want to be besties with her!!!
Daric is a warlock who is working with the evil mage Stefan. He was in on the kidnaping of Cady Vfrost. He was captured and held prisoner at Fenrir, but has proven he isn’t that he isn’t really with Stefan by trying to kill him. He really had no choice but to follow him as he was holding his mother prisoner to get Daric to do his bidding.
I forgot to mention he a chocolate smelling, man bun wearing, hunk of a man too!!!
Meredith and her mouth have been assigned to be Daric’s guard while he works the group to bring down Stefan and his mages once and for all. Revenge is all that he has on his mind, revenge for what Stefan has done to his family, for the years that he has used Daric’s mother to insure his cooperation. However, there is something about the foul mouth lycan female that keeps pulling him to her and takes his mind somewhat away from that.
We are introduced to Meredith’s lone wolf brothers when they come to tell her that their adopted father is dead. Brother’s that are drop dead yummy!!!
What happens next is total craziness!! A traitor within the council, more kidnappings, hilarious bff conversations, unicorn underwear, Disney princesses!!! All the craziness is worth the beautiful ending though.
Oh, and just as I was thinking I will miss these characters and wish that we learned more about Mer’s brothers, there was a lovely surprise that I don’t want to spoil, but it’s AWESOME!!!!!
Thank you Alicia Montgomery for writing a great group of shifters!!!

#Review – From a Distance from LM Carr

From A Distance

After an intense whirlwind romance, Karrie Parker thought she had it all: a sexy husband, a loving family, a great career and a beautiful home.

Together they lived a life fit for royalty.

But when tragedy strikes, Karrie is devastated and left to face the consequences of her husband’s deepest, darkest secrets. Discovering the strength to carry on while making important, life-changing decisions, she finds herself desperate for answers. And holding the key to the puzzle is the one man she loathes immensely.

For up and coming motorcycle drag racer Tyler Strong, keeping painful secrets was never part of the plan. Racing motorcycles and winning was all he ever wanted to do, but when his best friend’s lies begin to unravel, Tyler is sent into a tailspin when he’s forced to come face to face with the one woman he vowed to stay away from. The woman he refuses to speak to, the woman he avoids, the woman he watches…from a distance.

As the truth becomes clear, will destiny bring these two unlikely souls together or tear them apart forever?



From a Distance by LM Carr

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

WOW!!  What happens …that is kinda the theme here….what happens when the man you loved and thought you knew…well ya didn’t know.  What happens when the man you thought hate you don’t….well this is the new truth the our girl Karrie.

Karrie was married to a man and it turns out he was not who we thought him to be.  When she is shattered, she turns to find his friend and her enemy, Tyler, is there.  The couple are thrown together to figure out life after Alex when they find that they have a burning desire for the other.

The book had me saying WOW and OH Snap a few times but because I don’t want to spoiler this book I can’t tell you what the heck is going on…but just be warned, you will hate and love the author all in one chapter!!  LOL

The twists and turns will have you throwing you kindle, crying or just screaming like a lunatic but the book is so worth the read.  If you are an angsty reader then one click this immediately

L.M. Carr, author of the Giving Trilogy, the Stones Duet and a new stand alone novel, is a wife, a mom, an educator, a reader and a writer who lives in central Connecticut with her family. When she’s not sitting at her computer writing, she loves to read or spend time with family and friends.

After self-publishing the trilogy in 2015, a suspenseful romance tale about Mia Delaney and the sexy, arrogant Adam Lawson, LM penned the Stones Duet. This story is a spin-off from the trilogy in which Shane Davis moves to Boston for work. Jaded and cynical after his time in the Army, he meets a girl who changes his perception on the world around him.

Set to release on February 27, 2017, is a hot, new sexy romance about a motorcycle drag racer and his quest to hide secrets from a woman while the truth unravels before his eyes.

Looking to expand past the Contemporary Romance genre, L.M. is considering co-writing a Young Adult novel. Also in the works are several New Adult titles.

L.M. Carr is a lover of “Happily Ever Afters” because the world is filled with enough sadness. Reading is an escape in which anything is possible. But like in reality, stories sometimes take you on a journey through Hell before you can reach Heaven.

Follow along as we begin this journey together.


#REVIEW – Logan Kade by Tijan

You think you know me?
Manwhore. Partier. Fighter.
You know what? You’re right. I’m all those things. F*ck with mine and I’ll f*ck you ten times harder. Suspensions. Arrests. You think I care?

So yeah, I may fit the bad boy image, but there’s so much more you don’t know.

I’m loyal to a damned fault. I’ll never leave your side. The real Logan Kade isn’t a manwhore. When I love, I love hard and completely.

Taylor saw that side of me. Inside of me. She saw my darkness and pain, and the second she did, she owned me.

You may think you know me…
…but she’s the only one who sees me.

**Standalone for new readers, but does fit in the Fallen Crest Series between Fallen Crest University and Fallen Crest Home.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Holy crap on a cracker. I don’t even know where to begin! This book consumed me. From beginning to end, I was in love with all things Logan Kade. He’s been a favourite since the very first book in the Fallen Crest series but now that I got inside his head, he’s my number one.

Taylor Bruce reminds me of Sam so much. She’s strong, determined but broken and shattered in side. She loves with all of her, every single inch. She had a difficult past after being witness to a tragedy but she doesn’t let that get in the way of her loving hard and fierce. When she first stands beside Sam’s side, ready to fight, I knew she would be one of my favourite heroines. Tijan knows how to create a strong female, one we can all relate to. And while I may not be in college and a little older than these characters, they’ve become a part of me and my life. Every now and again, I’ll think of them and I know when the last book comes, I’ll be back to starting from the beginning. I will never get enough of these characters, this family.

Logan Kade is what I expected and more. Near the ending, my heart was breaking but I understood. I didn’t like it but I got it. I’m just glad that he finally pulled his crap together and went for his last girl. We’ve all seen his story, getting snippits here and there. He put on a good front with the women and alcohol but finding out about the real him, that’s what I enjoyed most. His humor, his quick wit and his sexiness, oozed off of the pages.

Taylor and Logan, along with Sam and Mason, are two of my favourite couples in romance.

Thank you Tijan for bringing us into this world.

Now onto Fallen Crest Home.


#Review #TwinsiefortheDayJordan – Cross Checked (Shots On Goal #2) by Kristen Hope Mazzola


Cross Checked (Shots On Goal #2)

One accident – a freaking car crash. That’s all it took to send my life into a tailspin.
Little did I know that out of the wreckage, everything would fall into place. I would get everything I had ever worked for.
Little did I know that I would find the woman who would cross check my life, flipping everything upside down.
Even though she’s melting the ice that surrounds my heart, I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will I ever be able to find my footing or am I destined to stay pinned against the boards?

Note: Cross Checked is the second book in the Shots On Goal Series. It can be read as a standalone, has a happily ever after, and does not have a cliffhanger. There are character crossovers from Hat Trick (book one in the series) which is also a standalone with a HEA and no cliffhanger.



Review by Jordan

Karla and Brayden have both been dealt shitty hands when it comes to their lives. From foster care or abusive parent, they both built lives for themselves. When Brayden’s sister is injured, Karla is the nurse on duty to keep Brayden from flying off the handle. Two years later the meet by chance and life seems to just fall into place for the two of them. 
This romance was funny and sweet, regardless of the rough beginnings both endured. I pulled for the characters to end up together. And I had hoped that Karla would change her mind about marriage. Thankfully it all ended with a happily ever after with both of them being happy and content with their unique relationship. 

Hi! Thanks for dropping in…

You want to know more about me? Well, let’s see…
I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

#Review #Historical – The Danger of Desire (Dartmouth Brides #3) by Elizabeth Essex

The Danger of Desire (Dartmouth Brides Book 3)

An Unlikely Partnership and an Uncontrollable Desire. . .

Naval Captain Hugh McAlden is accustomed to taking on deadly, high-stakes assignments–and being rewarded handsomely for his success at them. But to accomplish his latest mission, he’ll need someone more inconspicuous among his own ranks. Someone like the larcenous beauty who just relieved him of his pocket watch under his very nose. . .

Meggs Tanner’s livelihood–as one of London’s stealthiest thieves–depends on her remaining un-tethered and unnoticed. But when she is caught by an icy-eyed Scottish officer with an unusual proposition, she sees a chance to escape her life of crime forever. Ever wary, she accepts the job even as she plots her exit strategy, ready to cut and run at a moment’s notice.

But as Meggs and Hugh come nearer to the danger of their shared mission, thoughts of betrayal and distrust begin to dissolve. . .overshadowed by a passion worth any risk. . .




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

Megg is a thief but she hates it.  She hates everything about it.  She hates her life but she must steal to fill her belly.  This is her life.  PERIOD.  She refuses to be a prostitute so theft is her only option left.  Meggs and her brother are very good at stealing on the streets and have grown very accomplished at it since they have been living in despair.  One day they steal from the wrong person.  They stole a purse and watch and it changed everything!!

Hugh has lived on a ship for a long time.  He is hoping to gain a knighthood from Admiral Middleton if he can successfully catch a thief.  Well luck was on Hugh’s side.  He catches Megg stealing and decided that she will be the perfect person to catch the thief on his ship.

I loved the story because who doesn’t love a good romance between a soon to be knight and a thief right??  I love how sassy Megg is and tells Hugh pretty much what he can do at times in the novel.   I love how feisty Megg is!!  #GirlPower

Hugh was a good guy but at times I did want to hit him with a brick.  But that is why we love alpha’s right??  They are super annoying but loveable too.

The story was a good one and if you like historical you will not be disappointed in it.


When not re-reading Jane Austen, sipping tea or mucking about her garden, Elizabeth Essex can be found at her computer, making up wonderful stories about people who live far more interesting lives than she.
Elizabeth Essex

It wasn’t always so. Elizabeth graduated from Hollins College with a BA in Classical Studies and Art History, and then earned her MA from Texas A&M University in Nautical Archaeology, also known as the archaeology of shipwrecks. While Elizabeth loved the life of a working archaeologist, after writing and reading all those dry, dusty reports on ship construction, she would daydream about how lovely it would have been if only someone had fallen in love on just one of those ships. And so now she writes stories about just that.

Elizabeth lives in Texas with her family, in a house filled to the brim with books.


#ReleaseDay #Review – Dead Bodies Everywhere, Nicki Sosebee Series #11 by Jade Jamison

Dead Bodies Everywhere (Nicki Sosebee #11)

Nicki Sosebee is getting closer to something. She just doesn’t know what.

Nicki’s sleepy hometown of Winchester, Colorado, is the kind of place that deals with two or three deaths a year, not two or three a month, but a serial killer is brutally murdering young adults in the most gruesome ways. With the help of her friend, investigative blogger Janice Breaker, Nicki feels like they’re close to solving the mystery. Instead, she discovers that the corruption in her town reaches far and wide. As she gets closer to discovering the answer to all the dead bodies in her beloved town, she has to decide if she needs to stick to her guns or if it’s better to walk away and leave the headline for another day…


An officer in uniform approached the yellow tape that acted as a pathetic barricade to the middle of the alleyway, ready to turn Nicki away. Before she could reach in her purse to find her press credentials, Detective Nathan Wright appeared. “Aw, Sosebee. You do love me. You remembered the coffee.”

The uniform nodded slightly before stepping away, and Nathan raised the tape with his hand so Nicki could duck under it. “Don’t say I never did anything nice for you.”

Nathan was sneering, one eyebrow cocked. “I take it back. You don’t love me. You brought me convenience store coffee, not real stuff.”

“It is real. Smell it.”

“Yeah…real old. If I’d wanted convenience store coffee, I could’ve walked around the corner before you got here.”

“That place is still open?”


“I didn’t have many choices, considering I promised to be here in half an hour.”

“Guess I’ll cut you some slack then.” He ripped open the two sugar packets and sprinkled them in before replacing the lid and taking the coffee cup out of the tray, leaving it in Nicki’s hand. Rather than give him shit about it, she walked the few steps to the dumpster and lifted the lid to toss the trash in—and then she saw the body without any warning or preparation.

Nicki swallowed hard and turned quickly to look at Nathan. “Sosebee, you look like you’ve seen a ghost.” She wasn’t surprised—she could practically feel how the blood had drained from her face. Nathan started laughing then. “I guess you have seen a ghost.”

Nicki felt her eyelids lower. “That’s a bit gruesome, even for you, Detective.”

He shrugged. “Gotta find humor where we can.” He took several steps toward her but kept walking until he was right next to the lifeless body sprawled on the gravel next to the dumpster. “So I’m pretty convinced this is the same killer as our park killer. Wanna know why?”

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

Finally, our Nicki is back!!

I am a huge fan of Nicki.  She is feisty.  She is real.  She is a girl who had had her eyes opened to the crime all around her thanks to her job as a reporter and her on again but currently off again boyfriend Sean……MMM Sean ladies!!

K so this is a series and can’t be read as a standalone in my opinion. You could but TBH you won’t get half of the story or the angst of Jesse-Nicki-Sean so just start at book one please and thanks!

So, this book Nicki gets a lucky or not so lucky break reporting on a dead body and then bodies in her town.  She and Detective Wright spend a little too much too much together and we also start to wonder what his motives are with Nicki and the city???  Maybe Sean and his pessimistic ways are beginning to rub off on me??

Along with the investigation, Nicki and Sean are dealing with their relationship.  My hearts happy with what happened at the end and fingers are crossed for MORE in the next book.  Jesse and Nicki also seem to get some relationship closure which was much needed after how things ended with them.  Nicki and Jesse are forced to spend a lot of time together since she moved in with him…wait wait wait..platonic and yes Nicki can do platonic with him because we all know where her heart lies!

The story of the murders is left open but we know where the investigation is headed plus we have some new players to consider if we can only put a face with the name!!


Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is the first in the Branches of Emrys series.  Brandy has a wonderful way of building a story and drawing me in. this second chance love story of sorts had me turning pages and wanting more.

Savon Roantree had the man of her dreams they were supposed to be together forever or so she thought until the day he broke his promise to return to her. She didn’t know if he was alive or dead so she tried to move on by leaving and never coming back. Nate loved Savon and never planned to hurt her but his father jumped in his way. The only way Nate could be with Savon was to follow her in her dreams. Savon brother convinces her to come back home and now Nate has a chance of winning her back.

The chemistry between Nate and Savon was explosive. The mix of drama, suspense, secrets, betrayals, and twists in this new series was incredible.  I loved the way some of the characters from Others of Edenton make appearances in this book. Seeing Preston, Trem and Robert was the best oh how I love Preston. The way Brandy entwined these characters was awesome but at the same time if you have not read the Others of Edenton series you still knew who they are, what they do, and how they are an important part of this book. I cannot wait for more of this series.

Here are a few of my favorite lines:

“Just need your body against mine. Give me this and I’ll be content to wait forever.”

“I’ve spent years in there with her. I know her mind better than I probably know my own. Which is why nothing is going to stop me.”
