More Than A Friend (Cottage Grove #3)

synopsis

The third and final installment in the Cottage Grove Series. More Than A Friend can be read as a complete standalone with a HEA.

Other titles in the Cottage Grove Series include:
More Than A Memory
More Than A Fling

Bentley Jenkins has lived in his older brother, Baylor’s shadow since the day he was born. Never feeling like he could live up to the high standards that was expected of him, he set out to make his own name for himself. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a well-respected one.

Playboy, smooth talker, ladies man; these were just a few of the names that he was directly associated with. He took pride in the fact that he never had to seduce a woman to get her to fall at his feet. Normally, a look, a wink, and a flash of his sexy grin was all it took.
Any woman would jump at the chance to be with him, so much that he’s never heard the word, no.

Until her.

Until the woman who claimed to be infatuated with him for years.

Until the woman he now couldn’t seem to get out of his head no matter how hard he tried…

Placed him in the Friend Zone.

Miriam Armstrong changed his entire perspective on women and for the first time in his life, he found himself wanting to settle down, to be a one woman man. But first, he needed to prove to Miri that the chemistry between them was worth being pursued, and that he wanted to be…More Than a Friend.

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

Bentley…wow sorry Dean but we are breaking up.  Yeah the younger guy caught my eye last book but this book he won my heart way over.

Bentley is the town man whore.  He is kinda proud of it in my opinion.  He can have whoever whenever.  At his brother’s wedding he is thrown together, thanks to Julia, with Miri.  He is stunned at how beautiful this wall flower was from the memories he has of her from high school.

Miri met Bentley on one of the worst days of her life in high school but his kind heart made her heart flutter for the past 10 years.  No way does he even remember her or even give her the time of day.  No Bentley is purely a fantasy for her.

When the two hang out at the wedding, Bentley can feel the desire coming off Miri so he does his “usual” with a girl but even though she REALLY wants to do the usual back, she says no.  She friend zoned him.  WHAT? No one says no.  He is Bentley.  Well Bentley decides to be a “friend” all the while thinking this will get him into Miri’s bed.  However, the more time he spends with her, the more he grows to *Gasp* need her and *Double Gasp* LOVE HER!!  NO way.  How can he love someone like her?  She is everything he can never be.

Miri can’t believe Bentley agreed to be her friend.  She thinks he has ulterior motives but figures once he realizes she won’t move forward to his bed, he will lose interest.  She is stunned stupid to see this man whore has a soft, genuine and kind nature that he hides from other people.  Soon she is so confused because she can’t lose him.

The couple are stuck.  Both are afraid to push the friendship limits because they think the other isn’t feeling the MORE.  When Miri’s past comes back Bentley has to put up or shut up.

OMG the epilogue…typical Bentley comments when he gives her a gift.  I was loving it and it made me giggle so hard.  This book has so much freaking intensity and chemistry.  The couple will go down as a favorite of mine for sure.

Review

I WISH I WAS STILL READING IT! LOVED IT!
5 STARS

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!

Wyatt’s Melody (The Pub, #2.5) 
by Nicole De La Cruz 


OUT NOW 
 
 
 
After years of being stuck in her abusive mothers trailer, Melody Turner finally has a chance to find herself. Eighteen years old, with a full scholarship to a school in New York, Melody feels free. The problem is that she somehow finds herself repeating history. Fearing that she may become exactly like her mother, Melody intends to hide away in her dorm. When her best friend Rowan won’t allow that, she finds herself attending a show in New York City that could possibly change her life forever.
 
Wyatt Foster lives life on his own terms. He has no interest in his parents’ wealth or the law firm his family has been pressuring him to be a part of. Instead, Wyatt finds that he can escape the pressure of his family through music as lead guitarist of the popular band My Soul To Keep.
 
Priorities shift when he sees her and Wyatt’s life begins to take a turn.

 
 
 
 
When I first laid eyes on Melody, even through her leather jacket, I could tell she was different and, after Rowan introduced me to her, I knew she wasn’t the typical girl at the rock show. The way she handled herself, she was shy and timid, but it’s what made her real. I know I must have looked like a creep just staring at her that night, but I’m not sorry for it. I couldn’t help myself; I was drawn to her. I loved the way she blushed every time she would catch me staring. When she would talk, her voice was soft like velvet and made my heart race.  Whenever she would laugh at the stupid things I said it felt like a win every single damn time. I wanted to make her do it over and over because I knew I was the reason she was happy. 

 

 

 

Despite the angelic perfection that was sitting next to me, one thing I would change about her is the way she always covered her smile with her hand when she would laugh. It was frustrating and I had to fight the urge to grab her hand and hold it in mine.
 
I don’t know what made me ask her out. I knew girls like Melody didn’t go out with guys like me, but I went for it anyway and I was so stoked that she actually said yes. I just hope I don’t make myself look like a fool in front of her. Usually I don’t have a hard time with girls, but with Melody, and the way she looks tonight, she’s got me sweating.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Nicole is a new author that has recently decided to pursue her passion of writing. Something she has been wanting to do since she was a little girl, and thanks to the push of her husband she is now living her dream.
Almost every single day you can either find her reading or listening to music. She got into reading when she picked up her first Sarah Dessen book and hasn’t stopped since.
She is an easy going person that likes to spend time with her husband and their three cats, drink wine, listen to Breaking Benjamin, and try out new recipes.

Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

But he did. And I was done waiting.

Days after college graduation I headed back down to New Orleans to retrace my steps and find Owen again only to find my life was about to get even crazier… thanks to the most beautiful and dangerous of all paranormal creatures, the Allures.

The insta-love.
The perfect couple.
The enchanted fairy tale.
The concept of
‘happily ever after’ on reality TV is beautiful, but it’s complete B.S.
I mean, I get the
appeal.
The One is the most
watched reality TV dating show because it sells the idea that two people
“randomly” handpicked by producers will fall in love and ride off into the
sunset. We are expected to believe that after having a group of women embarrass
themselves for the affection of a man on national television, the bachelor and
the chosen one fall in love and they live happily ever after.
Let’s be honest.
Shows like The One are
really about fantasy romance and must-see entertainment—not happily ever
afters. That’s why the creators and producers don’t show what happens after the
exotic getaways, lavish lifestyles, and over-the-top proposals. Even though
reality TV relationships never last, they want us to buy into the fairy tale.
Truth is… when the
cameras stop rolling, the number one killer of reality TV couples is real life.
And life just got
REAL.

The cattiness.
The fights.
The shaming.
I don’t generally
watch reality television, but I definitely don’t watch reality dating shows.
Besides the fact that it’s completely staged, it’s a horrible depiction of

Women are pitted
against each other to compete for the affection of a man they “fall in
love” with after a week or two.
I call B.S.
It is complete crap.

 

So when my best
friend, Koko, was hired as a makeup artist o the set of the most popular
reality dating show, The One, I teased her mercilessly.
She told me that if I didn’t stop teasing her, she would get me back.
And she did…
Which is how I ended up as a contestant on The One.

#review #EnemiesToLovers – More Than a Fling, Cottage Grove Book #2 by Amber Nation @nation_amber

More Than a Fling (Cottage Grove, #2)

synopsis

More Than A Fling is Book #2 in the Cottage Grove Series. It can be read as a standalone, complete with a HEA.

Julia Caldwell has long since mastered the art of seduction in order to catch the only thing on her radar; one night stands. Having two failed marriages under her belt, she’s learned to keep her feelings in check and remain aloof, not wanting to get caught up in another pesky relationship only for it to end eventually in heartache. As the manager of a prestigious Hair Salon in Nashville, she succeeds in keeping the opposite sex at arms-length except when it suits her and her needs. That is until she lands on Cottage Grove soil.

Dean Parker has just as many failed marriages against him, and with being a divorce lawyer it eventually has him thinking that’s why his conquests always fall through, due to his occupation. After seeing his two childhood friends rekindle their flame and earning the happily ever after he so desperately craves, he decides to give up. That it’s not worth the heartache he’s been put through. Until he meets the snarky spitfire who gets under his skin.

Throwing the two of them together in the same town for the wedding of their best friends, Julia isn’t against having another fling, even if it is with Dean, but he definitely has other plans of making it more than that. Amongst their non-defined affair, lurking somewhere in the darkness is a shadow from one of their pasts who will stop at nothing to make sure that happily ever after’s stay where they belong, in the fairy tales.

I received this book for an honest review.

DEAN!!  YES!!  I was so excited for this book.  He is cocky, arrogant, hawt and just puuuuurfect for me.  Julia is so sassy, feisty and the perfect woman to keep this lawyer on the defense!

When Dean and Julia meet there was instant chemistry.  They both called it like they saw it and I loved it.  This book throws our two favorite besties together for Eden and Baylor’s wedding.  The instant they are together the digs and banter starts.  I swear I am laughing and then screaming KISS ALREADY!!!  They are so perfect for each other but they drive everyone crazy by denying it.

When Eden and Baylor leave for their honeymoon, we see Julia and Dean actually spending time together and realizing that they LIKE each other.  I love that Dean keeps teasing Julia by saying “Ahh you like me“ because, in fact, they more than like each other.  The chemistry is crazy and Julia is freaking out.  We don’t know YET why she is so closed off to love.  She tells Dean a lot about her past but not the WHY never again.  Something happens that sends Julia running for the hills.  But my future baby daddy Dean won’t give up.  OMG I was SWOONING at him and all l the stuff he does……the texts, the Christmas gift……Yes full on love with this man.

When Julia’s past comes back to haunt her, Dean is freaking out because he needs his woman and he needs her ASAP!!!

I seriously can’t tell you how much I loved this character but I gotta tell ya…baby brother Bentely’s book….it looks like it is going to be a good one too…..

Barrett & Ivan

synopsis

Despite the curve balls thrown at him throughout his childhood, Barrett Kenner is now a successful musician. The only thing missing is romance.

Ivan Romanov killed a man to save his sister’s life. Although he has served his time, Ivan’s past left him with baggage far heavier than the meager belongings he carries out of prison.

Barrett clings to the memory of a fervent kiss, a kiss that Ivan tries to pretend meant nothing. When the two men finally accept their feelings for each other, life should be smooth sailing, but the past still lurks in the shadows.

Can Barrett and Ivan protect their love and their lives, or will dangers from long ago be more than they can withstand?

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

angies review

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

I loved how this book begins!!  An “innocent” kiss turn both Barrett and Ivan’s worlds upside down.  Then we see the couple plus Ivan’s sister, Lexi, corresponding for the next 10 years while Ivan is in jail for murder.

When the story starts, Ivan is dealing with life out of prison, his feelings for Barrett, his need to provide and protect his sister and can he survive outside of prison.  We see Barrett wondering if Ivan will even remember THAT kiss or did it mean nothing to him. We see Lexi hoping to keep her best friend and brother in the house together through this new change in the living dynamic.

I loved Ivan.  He is really confused because he shouldn’t feel the way he does about Barrett because he isn’t gay.  However, he can’t hide his natural attraction to him either.  He also can’t wait to revisit that kiss that help him through 10 years of prison.

Barrett and Ivan have chemistry.  Initially it seems a little bit awkward because they BOTH want the other but fear a bit of rejection.  When they finally admit their want and desire, Lexi says she is worried that Barrett will regret choosing Ivan since he has never experienced life or dating others.  I was cracking up at the dates that they forced Barrett to go on just to prove that Ivan is HIS SOUL MATE.  I also loved how Barrett made Ivan suffer through 5 dates of his own to prove to Barrett that Ivan did want him as well.  Those chapters were great reading.  The jealousy from Ivan cracked me up soooo much!!

As life is settling in for the 3, Ivan’s past resurfaces and there is a major plot twist and a big WHAT moment in the story.  It helped Ivan realize that he will do anything for his family and his love Barrett.  The epilogue was awesome and I love seeing the endings for the guys and for Lexi as well.

about the author

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.
Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.
A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.
A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.

Excerpt

Tonight proved our love is stronger than anything—the feelings and emotions all real.

The only light in the room is the burning fireplace, crackling across the way from the bed. I watch the orange and yellow flames mesh, regaining my bearings. Shay’s warmth on top of my chest is welcoming, helping me relax. I notice she’s been silent for a few minutes, and when I look down I’m met by her sleeping form.

Everything that has happened in the past twenty-four hours wore my girl out. But I’m more than happy just sitting here listening to her light breathing as she sleeps. She looks beautiful, like nothing in this world could disturb her. I want this moment to last forever. I want my time with her to last far past the time we are given here on earth. I don’t know if I believe in eternity, but she sure makes me hopeful that there will be one. She makes me feel like the day I was born only half of me entered the world while the other half of me waited with her and the day we met was the day I became complete again.

Lightly, I move the backside of my fingers down her cheek, and when my thumb makes it to her lips I graze the round edges. Remembering the way she kissed me back when I took away her virginity. Looking at her now, I feel a sense of completion. I’m not only falling, but in essence, also surrendering my heart, soul, and body for the chance to love someone.

This is the moment that changes a boy into a man. The moment one falls in love. Not only am I responsible for loving this woman, but I’m also now in charge of protecting her heart and honoring any promise I give her from here on out.

For women, virginity is the one thing that they give to someone that they’ve fallen in love with. Well, most women. The one thing they give away as a symbol of their love and commitment to their partner. But what virginity is to women, is what a heart is to a man. We save that shit with us until the right woman comes along to claim it. That’s when we then give it away, without a second thought or regret. Shayla took my heart, and I will never be able to get it back.

“Why are you looking at me like that?” Her voice is soft and laced in a sleepy rasp.

“You look beautiful when you sleep.”

She searches my eyes, seeing if I’m lying or hiding anything from her. Letting her gaze falter for a second she moves on, accepting my answer. She stretches before placing her head back on her spot above my heart.

#review #2ndChanceRomance #FriendsToLovers- More than a Memory, Cottage Grove Book #1 by Amber Nation @nation_amber

More Than a Memory (Cottage Grove, #1)

synopsis

Disappearing without a word, Eden Richardt fled from her naïve former life in Oregon to start anew in the Midwest. Being a morning radio show host, she’s got a lot going for her except finding someone to share her life with. In that aspect, no one seemed to compare to the one. Having absolutely no desire to step foot back in her hometown of Cottage Grove, her decision was swayed with an invitation to her high school reunion and solidified after receiving a letter from her first and only love from her past.

Living his life the best way he knows how, Baylor Jenkins spends his time running the family plumbing business, after giving up his dream to be an Architect, and raising his almost teenage daughter solely without the help of his ex-wife. In the back of his mind he knows something was missing from his otherwise enjoyable life. But that something was actually a someone who disappeared after graduation; a former best friend turned lover.

Locking eyes after fifteen long years raises deep emotions and unanswered questions:

What happened to make Eden run?

Could their love for each other still exist?

Or will their past time together be nothing more than a memory?

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

Ohhhhh 2nd chance romance…so sweet.  I am really draw to those stores because doesn’t every one wonder at one point in their life about a lost love????

Eden loved her best friend Baylor for as long as she can remember.  Too bad he never saw her that way.  Or did he?  On graduation night when love is on the cusp for our characters, Eden runs away??  WHAT!!  It takes 15 years for her to return and face the past that she left all those years ago.

Eden is bound to face her past and see why it took Baylor 15 years to email her.  Baylor is stunned stupid when he sees the love of his life but can’t believe she actually came to the school reunion.  Dean, the couples last partner or third of the musketeers, is there to help the couple navigate through everything to find a way back to the other.  When the reason for the big miscommunication is revealed…smh…someone was gonna get a big old throat punch for causing drama.

When Eden and Baylor rebound from the past and look to the future they are both scared to question it.  She has to go home to Tennessee and he has to stay in Oregon.  Again our couple is so scared that they don’t talk and so again heart ache happens but this time Baylor will not give up without a fight.

I am so freaking excited for book 2 because Dean will killing me in this book.  He is so sweet and he loved Eden just as much as Baylor.  I want him to find his true love and I guarantee a certain bestie hairdresser will give him a good run for his money!!!

synopsis

The Promise
A promise made to comfort a patient on his deathbed sends the retired army officer Dr. Whitten M.D. on an excursion into the darkest worlds of pornography.
It was the doctor who made the promise but it is the man who must honor it. A God fearing gentle man, a family man, a widowed and lonely man deep in his middle years. Layer by layer his years fall away as love and fate, the promise and the affair draw him ever deeper until he once again feels like the elite soldier of his youth facing an evil more vile than any contested in open combat.
With a boot between his heart and the horror Carl Whitten honors his promise. Accompanied by a beautiful escapee from the realms of sex as cinema he learns the suffering on a battlefield barely compares to the misery found where love falls victim to lust, where lust turns to bloodlust for those who still know love.

Is it possible for there to be a more compassionate voyeur than a true and genuine guardian angel?

Daughters

Dear Dr. Ranik:
I am writing to you because you helped my mother Mrs. Beverly Kendall and she speaks highly of you.
I am enclosing a copy of a document I stumbled across while on a friend’s computer. I opened the file because my name was part of the file name. When I first read the file I was quite disturbed and confused, which I’m sure you’ll understand when you have read what I found. I have read it several times now, with my feelings under better control since I knew what to expect. The facts in the story do not contradict what little I know of Mother’s early life and the dates would seem to be right. If you would be so kind, would you please read this and advise me on how I should proceed from here? Should I confront my parents with this, or seek counseling, or just file what I found as strange but maybe true and go on?

Yours truly,
Amber Lynn Kendall
