Goodreads

 

MORE Please! I am loving Ryder and Riley!! Right from jump we are smack in the middle of Riley escaping from some bad people. Right from there, the author had me hooked. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put this book down and the author did not disappoint. Riley is full of sass, sarcasm, and wit. It’s the perfect combination for a strong female lead. But she soon has met her match when she meets Ryder…. Or has Ryder met his match with Riley? Ryder is more of a loner but has been around the block a time or two, just saying. When they collide sparks fly! Whew! I want to tell you more but I just can’t. And it’s killing me! There is never a dull moment with the characters or the story. The right amount of action, sarcasm, and sexy time! The bad pat about the story…is that it is over, lol! I do hope that we see more of this duo! Overall I recommend this book to everyone. Someone that wants some drama, love, sex, action, shifters…. here is something for everyone!

#review – Mountain of Truth: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #3) by Sarah Noffke

36352949

The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.

Terran has gone too far, poisoning the wells and streams of Virgo. Queen Azure must act fast in order to save her people from a deadly virus that steals their magic.

Only one witch knows the cure to the virus and no one knows how to find her. 

Azure and her ragtag crew set off for the Mountain of Truth in hopes of locating Mage Lenore, the oldest witch alive. They soon learn the problem isn’t finding the old witch. It’s surviving each other on the mountain.

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

A magical world tied to Earth, and nothing like it.

*NOTE: There’s cursing in this book because these witches and wizards are just rude like that. If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

This story starts where The Dark Forest ends. Phillip poisons Virgo’s water to weaken the witches and warlocks and taint the crops. Queen Azure and crew finds themselves traveling to the Mountain of Truth to find Mage Lemore and the Book of Branches to save Virgo. This will not be easy as the Mountain of Truth has some of its own obstacles for the Queen and her motley crew.

Sara does a great job of introducing us to new characters. SO enjoy seeing all these characters growing and each one is gaining a place in my heart. Oh my the little unicorn is one of a kind. As always Monet adds that extra comedic relief.

Sara has a way of pulling every emotion from me while reading her books and this was no different. Now I need to read Land Of Terran to see what will happen next.

Sarah Noffke writes YA & NA sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian. She is the author of the Lucidites, Reverians, Ren, and Vagabond Circus series. She’s been everything from a corporate manager to a hippie. Her taste for adventure has taken her all over the world. If you can’t find her at the gym, then she’s probably at the frozen yogurt shop. If you can’t find her there then she probably doesn’t want to be found. She is a self-proclaimed hermit, with spontaneous urges to socialize during full moons and when Mercury is in retrograde. Sarah lives in Southern California with her family.

#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease – Outcast, A Good Guys Novel by Jamie Schossler

OUTCAST

KAYLA
My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin—with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love.
Because if it wasn’t for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even know I exist.
Then I find his sketchbook.
And it changes everything.

EZRA
There are two certainties in my life: I’ve been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was fourteen, and I can’t have her.
I’ve spent years settling for a two-dimensional fantasy world, capturing her beauty with a pencil and paper. She’s kind, smart, gorgeous…
And she belongs to someone else.
Or so I thought.
An interesting turn of events makes me realize things aren’t always how they appear on the outside, and now I’ve got my chance to be the man she deserves.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called a loser. The cripple. An outcast.
But maybe—just maybe—this time the good guy won’t finish last.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

OH MAN!!  Ezra!!  I gotta say it.  This is my favorite book of the series. FAVORITE!!!  Ezra and Kayla are such a great read!!

Ezra and Kayla are both blind to the way the other feels about them.  He thinks he is the gimp with the limp and the squishy belly guy so no way would this beautiful girl like him let alone LOOK at him THAT WAY.

Sure Kayla is a popularish girl who is seen as another guys girlfriend but little does everyone know what is really happening between Gavin and Kayla.  Side Note: Gavin needs a book.  He needs some love Jamie!!!

Ok back to the review.  When Kayla discovers Ezra’s secret she decided to go after what she wants buuuut is stunned he pushed her away.  The couple spend the summer writing letters and forming an amazing bond that will help them when they go away to the same college in a few months.

Ezra is such a great guy.  He feels even though he has changed a bit physically he is still not enough for Kayla and makes a few stupid decisions…but I mean even he says Guys do stupid things…..

Kayla is such a sensitive person.  She really loves her people with her entire heart.  She doesn’t let a lot of people in but when she does, you are set for life with her.  Looking at all the people she helps in her life from Gavin to Paul shows the amazing character she has and strength to know when to do the right thing.  Shauna is also a great person for her to connect with and she will help her grow in her charitable contributions.

There is just so much about this story that I love and I wasn’t able to put the book down because I needed to know what would happen….how would the first kiss go?  How would the first of OTHER things go? *wink*  But I loved seeing the two grow as a couple and as individuals in the story.

Jamie Schlosser grew up on a farm in Illinois surrounded by cornfields. Although she no longer lives in the country, her dream is to return to rural living someday. As a stay-at-home mom, she spends most of her days running back and forth between her two wonderful kids and her laptop. She loves her family, iced coffee, and happily-everafters.

EXCERPT:

“It’s you.” I stand up from my chair and do a full perusal of Lilah’s body. My eyes dart down to her belly…her pregnant belly. I meet her eyes, expecting to see anger because of how I left her that night, but instead I see a flicker of something subtle before her face goes blank. “How are you?”

The muscle in her jaw ticks as she walks around me to the table and sets the folder down. “Mr. Meyers, I’m Delilah Mackenzie, the office manager. I need you to fill out these forms and then return them to the basket outside of my office. I’ll also need a copy of your insurance card, private investigator’s license, and driver’s license. Carrie can help you with that. Any questions?” She rests one hand on her belly and the other on her hip.

I don’t remember her being this sexy, but I can’t think of that now. “Is that…my baby?” Sweat dots my forehead and my pulse races. Throw me into a war zone and I’m cool, calm, and collected, but waiting to find out if I’m her baby’s father has me ready to freak out.

Lilah—no, Delilah—looks at me with fire in her eyes. “No, it’s my baby.” She’s out of the conference room, slamming the door behind her faster than I can say, “boo.”

I slowly lower myself into the chair and rest my head in my hands. It’s my baby, I know it is. The timing is just right for when we slept together.

That had been the most fun I’d had in a long time— the sex was phenomenal, and yeah, I knew she wasn’t that experienced, but I hadn’t had a clue how young she really was until I woke with her curled up against me. She just looked really young—too young for me once I came to my senses.

#WOTR18 #Review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – 24 Roses by Elena M. Reyes

 

24 Roses

24 roses.
24 days filled with declarations of love.
24 moments where life will mark her as mine.

I’ve loved Anahi Pratt since she moved in next door at the age of twelve. With her knobby knees and a mouthful of braces she made my heart thump harshly inside my pre-pubescent chest. One look into the greenest eyes I’d ever seen and I was hooked for life. Owned.

However, I was tongue-tied and confused. Did the only thing I could and offered my friendship.

After years, those feelings never changed. Instead they grew—morphed into something deep and profound. But never once did she see me as more than a friend. Never did she see the man that worshiped the ground she walked on. The man that desired to be what she wanted. Needed.

I stayed on the sidelines until that day:

A crash.

Her life on the line and my world came to a screeching halt.

Life is short and changes in the blink of an eye, a lesson I suddenly understood. There wasn’t a second to wait. No more hiding behind the guise of friendship.

She was mine and it was time I claimed her.

Goodreads

Review by Jordan

Can Bryson win Anahi over and make her see that they are meant to be together? Their childhood friendship that has withstood years of other relationships and set ups culminate into an epic love story or will they realize they were never meant to be anything other than friends. Bryson is determined to woo Anahi with a rose each day and a determination to prove he the man that she has always wanted. Will 24 roses be enough? The story of best friends with hidden desires for each other is sweet in the best of ways. They are the cutest couple with their moms trying to constantly set them up. With everyone around them knowing their true desires, will the two of them finally be able to find their way to each other and finally live their happily ever after? I loved these characters and their magical story of how the find their true love within their best friend.

Elena M. Reyes was born and raised in Miami Florida. She is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued with all forms of art—whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her first taste of writing came to her during her fifth grade year when her class was prompted to participate in the D. A. R. E. Program and write an essay on what they’d learned.
Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world. She now resides in Central Florida with her husband and son, spending all her down time letting her creativity flow and letting her characters grow.

 

#Review – Blood & Loyalties – by Ryan Michele

26231676

A Mafia Romance

Family meant everything.

Good, bad, right, wrong, legal, illegal—none of that mattered when it came to family. Family was and always would be number one.

Catarina Lambardoni stayed on the legal side of the family businesses by running Lambardoni Enterprises. Professionally, she was beyond successful. In her personal life, however, she was not, having just walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her.

Jag Maratelli, the boss’s right hand, worked extremely hard to sustain his position in the family and honored it with his life. When he was summoned to the East Coast for an unexpected meeting, a chance encounter with Catarina and one look into the fire within her made him a very determined man.

The chemistry between the two scorched hot, and Jag had been with enough women to know Catarina was something special, something he couldn’t allow himself to walk away from. Life had other ideas, though, when a betrayal in the family sent him two thousand miles away from her while danger lurked closer than anyone realized.

Would their connection be strong enough for both of them to pursue more?

Or would people and events from the past and present make that choice for them?

Goodreads

Amazon

I don’t read many mafia stories but this one had me hanging on needing to know what’s next. I love strong female characters and Catarina is about a fierce as they come. I also love strong take charge males and Jag is that and so much more.

Catarina Lambardoni is the daughter in one of the mob families. They are ruthless with others and loyal to their family. Mess with one you get them all. Catarina runs Lambardoni enterprises with her cousin which is one of the businesses that run on the legal side. We first meet Catarina when she takes care of her boyfriend well exboyfriend now because of his actions. She proved she didn’t need her brothers, dad or uncle to take care of things for her. She did a bang up job on the DB.

Jag Maratelli runs things for the Lambardoni’s in California when he is called to the east coast for business. While there he meets Catarina and his world is tilted. He never had a woman make him react the way Catarina did.

Can they survive with his business in California and hers on the east coast? Will his past and her families past be the death of them?

The insta-love was amazing the twists this book had kept me wanting more. The ending WOW never saw that coming. Great story line that kept me hanging on. I truly would love to hear Kiera’s story but I totally understand.

Ryan Michele found her passion in bringing fictional characters to life. She loves being in an imaginative world where anything is possible, and she has a knack for special twists readers don’t see coming.

She writes MC, Contemporary, Erotic, Paranormal, New Adult, Inspirational, and other romance-based genres. Whether it’s bikers, wolf-shifters, mafia, etc., Ryan spends her time making sure her heroes are strong and her heroines match them at every turn.

When she isn’t writing, Ryan is a mom and wife living in rural Illinois and reading by her pond in the warm sun.

#WOTR18 #Review – On A Whim by J.M. Walker


38217753

I’m in hiding.

As a bestselling BDSM author, I know all too well the danger of letting people get too close.

I’ve spent my entire life keeping people at arm’s length, until her. Kiki Smith is simply supposed to be my new cover designer, but before I know it, she starts breaking down the walls I’ve worked so hard to erect.

She’s unlike any woman I’ve ever met and before I’m even aware of what’s happening, she consumes me from the inside out.

There’s just one problem… I have a secret, and I’m afraid that once she finds out what I’m hiding, my barriers will once again slam back into place.

Goodreads

Amazon


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

This is a quick little read but packed full of hotness, secrets and some laughter.

Kiki is a graphic designer who designs book covers for authors. she has a great career and a wonder family. However, because of her small family she is guarded, protective, and not willing to put her heart out there again. really she has the greatest friend a girl could want. Chaz is her BFF and he only wants the best for Kiki. He had me cracking up in this story. OMG “wet bread” What Really Chaz (i cannot even if you want to know you will have to read it).

B.Vesper is looking to cover his books and he is going to picky. He contacts Kiki to take on this project. B puts Kiki in contact with his cover model/PA Bo. Bo and Kiki end up covering more than just book covers and Bo slowly starts to bring Kiki’s walls down. When Bo reveals he is keeping a secret and has been lying to her can she forgive and learn to trust again?

I loved these people not just Bo and Kiki but also Chaz and the twins. They know how to have fun and support one another as BFF’s should. I enjoyed Bo and the BDSM aspect in this story. Seeing Kiki respond and submit to Bo was entertaining. I liked Bo and Kiki and would have enjoyed reading more of them and of course Chaz too.

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.
