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

Oh sister wife!!  Another great read from your nomads.  Plus seeing Rex and Shooter….yup I loved it!!

Judge has done what he thought was the right thing for his woman his whole life.  He stayed away so she could live and not be worried. He has missed her his entire life but thought this was for the best.  He has been miserable but he wanted her happy.

Tamalyn AKA Mandee has hidden.  She was delivers by Judge to a safe place but after some spidey senses alerted she took off.  She misses her family and her cousin but she knows she should keep moving to keep everyone, including herself, safe.  She misses and curses Judge for leaving her and not loving her enough to stay.

When Judge faces their past and finds out what all haunted Tamalyn, he was not a happy man and it makes him even more driven to fine his woman.  After a realization from her cousin, he needs to claim her and keep her by his side forever.

When the guys stroll into Tamalyn’s bar she is beyond excited, relieved and scared.  But seeing Judge sends her heart into over dive.  Does she love him?  Can she trust him?  Who the heck is this Trapper guy??  LOL  I mean Trapper…I love him so much!!

I am super excited for Rowdy but Trapper…yeah his book is going to be something else!!

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

I so love Chelsea’s men and their women.  I tell you I feel like I am right there in the mix of things with them.  I never want to set her books down I just want to devour them and still need more.

What happens when the people you are supposed to trust the most to take care of you and protect you are the evil of all evils?  You lean on and trust your best friend but what happens when they get you away from the evil and leave you even if they believe this is the best thing for you. This is what happened to Tamalyn Andrews. She did not let is slow her down she had gut instincts that when she knew the past was on to her she ran to keep safe. That is until the one that left her behind finds her.

Bladen Jones (aka Judge) always keep an eye out for his Tamalyn. When the time was right he was able to get her to safety. When the time came he went looking for her again and was determined to never let her go or leave her behind no matter what the cost.

These two are such a complement to one another. This is one of my favorite second chance friend to lover story. The friendship that Tamalyn was able to have with her cousin was amazing knowing the trust issues she has. The twist and turns in this book had me gasping and saying NO WAY! Talk about keeping me on edge while taking me on a hairpin kind of ride. I cannot wait to see what Chelsea has in store for us next.

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

 

#3Review- Taking a Gamble by Britni Hill

Title: Taking a Gamble
Author: Britni Hill
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 6, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Taking a Gamble is a flirty and funny romantic comedy about what happens when your life takes a turn and your best friend’s twin starts hitting on you.

Who knew a weekend in Vegas could change everything about your life?

Not me. I went to there to get married.

Kind of.

That was the plan. Until it wasn’t anymore.

I had the perfect dress, an awesome venue, and my closest friends with me.

What was missing?

My groom. That’s right. He bailed.

It’s all going to be okay. Some things are just meant to be. What better city than Vegas to leave it to chance?

Maybe that’s how I woke up as Gabby Thomas and went to bed Mrs. Brennan …

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

Shut up already! I loved this sweet and sexy read!!  I loved Luke and Gabby’s fun and untraditional romance.

Gabby is going to Vegas with her friends and family to marry her long-term boyfriend Trevor buuuut wakes up not married to Trevor!!  OH SNAP!!!  We don’t know the person she is married too until a few chapters later buuuut come on you totally can see the chemistry between Luke and Gabby as do their friends.

Luke has loved Gabby from afar for so long and now that he has a chance with her, he will not blow it.  Luke gets and understands Gabby because they have grown up together and are good friends.  Best friends even you might say.  So when he asks her to take a chance…..YES YES YES!!!

I totally hope we get more books from the side characters.  Ian and Brock plus Lila and the other girls are fun characters and I want to know more especially with the morning after scene we were witness too…..LOL Ian is a scream!!!

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

What is a girl to do when everyone has plans to go to your wedding in Vegas but you know there will be no groom? Well you have everyone come and try to make it a party. That is exactly what Gabby did.

Gabby was determined to have fun in Vegas what she didn’t plan on was leaving Married. You see her best friends twin brother, Luke, has had feelings for her for a while but Gabby was unavailable. So what is a guy to do when they find out the girl is not getting married and they are in Vegas? That’s right he went out on a limb and hoped she would meet him.

I enjoyed Gabby and Luke’s chemistry you could tell from the get go they shared a special something. This was a fun, sexy, light read with a great bunch of friends.  I hope there will be more I enjoyed all the characters and would love to know more about all of them.

Review by Jordan

Review provided by the author

Witty, sexy, and all around hilarious. I was pulled in immediately and could not put this book down. I could see this story playing out like I was watching a movie screen. The characters came to life and are full of personality. The only downside is that I wanted more.
What was meant to be a wedding weekend turned into something that no one could have predicted. I was instantly drawn in and left wanting more. You won’t be sorry you picked up this book!

#Review #ReleaseTour – The Demon Who Loved Me – by: Jessie Lane

 

Title: The Demon Who Loved Me
Series: Big Bad Bite Series #4
Author: Jessie Lane
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release: May 28, 2017


He’s a gambling man…

One brunette bombshell with a devious mind and a potty mouth has thrust Kent smack dab in the middle of where he never wanted to be—his family. He’s spent most of his life avoiding his familial responsibilities, especially the one that required him to join the Ninth Circle Council—the demon society’s equivalent of judge, jury, and executioner. Then one lost bet with a little Amazon flips his entire life upside down. With worries about retaliation from the remnants of a rogue pack of wolves in Germany, he doesn’t have time to deal with his family, or his obsession with Chloe Demos.

And she’s the biggest risk he’ll ever take…

After her mother’s death, Chloe’s world crashes down around her. A secret Amazonian heritage. Aunts and a long lost brother she never knew about. Supernatural beings. With all of the sudden changes, she’s decided it’s time to step out from behind her façade of an air-headed, materialistic bimbo and show her sisters she truly does love them—she only hates their wardrobes. What better way to show she cares about her family than to help prove someone close to one of them is innocent of the bogus murder charges from some ridiculous council? Chloe has no scruples about calling in the marker the demon Kent owes her in order to do just that. It’s only too bad she’s underestimated Kent’s intelligence, and his playboy charm.

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

I have wanted to know Kent’s back story for a while.  The way he looked after his partner and the dedication to his job I knew there was good in the Demon.

Kent was the playboy that never hung around long enough to fall for a woman. He was also dodging his duty as a Demon. That is until a certain Amazon walked in taught him a lesson and could turn the world as he knew it upside down.

Chloe was the fashion diva and portrayed the roll of the airhead. But when secrets come out about her family and one is in trouble she knows it’s time to let the real Chloe out. She uses her whit to get Kent to help her not realizing what it will cost Kent in the end.

The chemistry between Kent and Chloe is great with Chloe pushing to protect her heart and Kent pulling trying to show Chloe his isn’t what she and everyone else thinks they know. Can I say I can relate to Chloe’s sister Elena I find myself acting similar to her when spiders come around only I which I had a flamethrower lol.  I did have tears when Chloe, Elena and Gage went to see the psychic and learned what was coming their way. I loved how Jessie incorporated all the past characters of the Big Bad Bite Series.

Jessie Lane is a best-selling author of Paranormal and Contemporary Romance, as well as, Upper YA Paranormal Romance/Fantasy.


She lives in Kentucky with her two little Rock Chicks in-the-making and her over protective alpha husband that she’s pretty sure is a latent grizzly bear shifter. She has a passionate love for reading and writing naughty romance, cliff hanging suspense, and out-of-this-world characters that demand your attention, or threaten to slap you around until you do pay attention to them.

She’s also a proud member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA).

Don’t miss The Watcher by Bella Jewel!

Goodreads

Amazon US

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via netgalley for an honest review.

Holly crap…this was a great page turner for me.  First of all I don’t usually read anything that is scary but when it’s Bella Jewel I have to read it. If I thought 72 hours was dark and suspenseful wow did Bella crank it up a notch for The Watcher.

Marlie Jacobson was kidnapped and tortured several years ago. She was able to get away from her kidnapper.  Her mother capitalized on her nightmare and published a book tossing Marlie into the spotlight everywhere she went. Now her sister is missing only no one believes her when she says there is foul play involved.

Marlie hires Kenai Michelson a private investigator to help her find her sister. Even though he believes her sister is a runaway agrees to help find her.  To see Marlie and Kenai go on this cat vs mouse type of chase and see how they get to know each other was a great story.  Both have their past they are trying hard not to let the other in on. Marlie holds her past in and never truly told anyone what all she endured with The Watcher.

I loved Marlie she was a strong never give up type of woman. She was able to outsmart The Watcher overcome what she endured and was a stronger smarter woman for it. Kenai was so frustrating to me in the beginning I wasn’t sure if I was going to like him but in the end he won me over.  To see Kenai transform from the cold standoffish brooding man to one that was understanding and protective was amazing to see. This story took me on so may twist and turns just as you thought they were on to something there was something else that would be exposed that blew that thought out of the water. I have to say some of the scenes tested my gag reflexes and Marlie was a strong woman to be able to overcome all she endured.  All in all I have to say I cannot wait for another dark suspenseful mystery from Bella Jewel.

Bella is a fun loving australian and a multiple USA Today bestseller. She spends her days in sunny north QLD with her husband and two adorable daughters. She’s been writing since she was fifteen, and after her success with her debut novel, Hell’s Knights, she has been head down, bum up creating new stories.

#WOTR #Review – Scarred (Ruthless Rebels MC, #3) Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele @chelseacamaron @Ryan_Michele

Both are attending authors

Title: Scarred
Series: Ruthless Rebels MC #3
Author: Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele
Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: May 19, 2017

Whitton ‘Skinny’ Thorne– scarred skin only covers a beautiful soul.
Bitter with a capital B.
Life has been hell from the beginning when Whitton was burned as an infant, yet as much as he pushes me away I’m always coming back for more.
When I finally let go, he wants to let me in, how do I survive when we’ve both been scarred?
***Each book in the Ruthless Rebels MC is a new couple, but are best read in order. This is a biker book so please expect violence, foul language, and sexual situations. Do not buy if any of this offends you.***
I received this book for an honest review.

I fall more and more in love with these Ruthless Rebels with every book.  I have been curious about Skinny and his twin TT. You know these two have not had the greatest time growing up but to hear Skinny’s story is heartbreaking.  My heart went out to Roelyn she found the good in her life only to have it walk away.

Roelyn and Skinny were the light to each other’s darkness but were torn apart when Skinny’s bond to his brother torn him away from Roelyn.  Ten years later the funeral of foster parents brought them full circle. Causing Skinny to see Roelyn again and he is determined to not let her go this time.

Roelyn is a caring and loving woman who is ready to junp in and help at any moment when needed. After she sees Skinny she doesn’t think her heart can survive being shattered by him.

I absolutely love this second chance story. The history that these two have is more than heartbreaking but was able to overcome most together. I loved seeing Skinny’s protective side come out when Roe finds herself in trouble.  Now that I know Skinny’s story I feel the need to know more of TT.

 

 

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

OH Skinny!!  Man oh man.  I was a bit curious about you and your history but mothering really prepared me for all of it.  The life you lead and the support you had from Roe was the only thing good in your life other then your brother.  When you were forced to leave her, you lost a bit of yourself in the process.  10 years later you refuse to make the same mistake again.

Roe….your kind heart and willingness to help people is what drew you to Whitt/Skinny.  When he left you, you were so alone but forged on and made something of yourself.  When he returned it totally threw you for a loop.

The history of this couple and the why’s they were pulled apart were sad but the theme of family is strong in this book as in all the books by these two authors.  When fate gives them a chance to try and figure out a life, they are both so scared and unsure but once Roe’s life is in danger Whitt steps up and clams what is his and has been his for 10 years!

I loved the story but I really appreciated the set up for Schooled. I think TT’s story is going to be a tough one.  The guilt he carries is pretty dang heavy.

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.”

Title: Broken Little Melodies
Author: Jennifer Ann
Genre: Contemporary Rockstar Romance
Release Date: June 26, 2017

Blurb:

Star-crossed lovers…

Deep among the Jeffrey Pines of Lake Tahoe, Isabelle Martin and Roman Stone find comfort in each other at a summer camp for musically gifted teens where their love grows stronger every year. But they couldn’t be more different. She’s an orphan from the West Coast running with the wild crowd, and he’s a rich kid from New York hiding the scars of an abusive home. When their worlds finally collide, the future they planned comes crashing down around them and Belle is forced to cut Roman from her life without any explanation.

Five years later…

Roman’s on top of the world. His successful rock band is preparing for their first headlining tour, but when he unexpectedly runs into Belle, old feelings for her come rushing back, and his new found bravado fails him.

Belle has learned that some things in life have the power to break your spirit, and trying to forget Roman has made her bitter—she’s merely a waitress headlining a bar-band, and he’s had everything handed to him on a silver platter. Seeing him again makes her question whether time can mend a broken heart.

Their struggles brought them together, and their differences tore them apart, but now that they’re together again, can they repair the broken pieces and get a second chance at love?

#WOTR #Review Cat Scratch Fever by Sarah O’Rourke

Cat Scratch Fever

Beau LaForte felt an internal pull to the beautiful, innocent Alexa Davidson. Oh, this was not the typical boy-meets-girl story. This was anything but typical. You see, Beau was a shifter – a panther – and the alpha of the pack. What his panther wanted, his panther got. And together, they wanted Alexa.
But when Alexa finds the pretty kitty lolling on her bed, she is determined to get him out — before he sheds more on her brand new sheets!
Instalove. Shifter romcom. 23K words. Novella.

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

This was my first Sarah O’Rourke book and it will not be the last.  What would you do if you found a large kitty cat in your bed on the morning of your 21st birthday? Well that is the exact predicament that Lexi found herself in.

Lexi tried her hardest to get the unwanted uninvited cat out of her bed I mean really all it was doing was ruining her new sheets. Then the moment she takes her eyes off the animal there stands the very handsome, very naked Beau. The same Beau that has been coming into her coffee shop and she has been crushing on for a while.

Beau is not a kitty cat as Lexi states but the Alpha of his Panther pack. Beau knew the moment he scented Lexi that she was his mate but he had to take it slow with her because she is human and knows nothing about his world.  On this day he could wait no longer she was his and he was pouncing.

This was a great short story I sure hope there will be more. We were introduced to a great number of characters that I would love to learn more about. The banter in this was great, there was some conflict or jealousy,  and seeing the family bond kept me turning the pages and hoping for more.

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

I am going to start this by stating that if you ladies don’t continue this series I might have to kick some butt!!

I loved this novella and (fingers crossed) start of a new series!!???  If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading these ladies you are totally missing out.  Their books are hilarious no matter what but they can write some killer heartache too.  Lucky for me, this book was all sexy times and funny banter.  Who doesn’t love that kinda read right???

So Alexa wakes up to a giant kitty cat….errr….sorry…panther in her bed.  All she is worried about is the fact it is ruining her new bed spread….LOL  after shewing the cat all of a sudden a customer from the coffee shop is in its place and LAWD is he a hot customer.

Beau is the alpha of the panthers who reside in the town Alexa works at.  He has been biding his time until today, her 21st birthday, to tell her that she is his. Period. The end.  WELLLLLL, Alexa isn’t so sure about this and kinds says “nope” which makes our shifter a bit nuts!!  Beau now realizes he is going to work hard for his mate and show her exactly what she is and who she is to him.

I loved the story and the banter.  I enjoyed meeting the rest of the shifters in his family and pack except…..welll read and you will totally know who I am talking about.  I loved the mythology of the shifters and who is in and who is out of the treaties.  But what I really loved, was the epilogue.  Again, this is where I sate they need to continue this series or this blogger will be not so happy with them.
