#Review – I Hear….Love by Annalisa Nicole @AnnalisaNicole4

I Hear...Love (A Different Road, #2)

synopsis

Release Date February 29th!

Kate Mason at twenty-three, feels as though she has lived through enough sorrow and pain to fill generations of lifetimes. On the outside, she wears a beautiful mask. On the inside, she’s a million, jagged, broken pieces. She blames herself, not only for her parent’s death, but for her brother’s blindness.

For Kate there is no hope of silencing the chaos in her head. There is no forgiveness for what she has done to her family, or herself. There will never be anyone to love her and her shattered past.

Cooper Sullivan recently moved to Malibu and was immediately adopted by a stray black lab he named Sadie. Cooper soon realizes there is something very special about Sadie when she is drawn to a beautiful woman, with a kaleidoscope of emotions that churn deep in her eyes.

Cooper sees Kate’s broken pieces scattered all around her, but he finds himself wanting to show her just how beautiful each piece is. Underneath her mask, he sees an even more beautiful woman, and he wants to help her put the broken pieces back together.

When you are broken you can never be fully put back together. There are always tiny slivers here and there that can never be replaced.

Can Kate finally silence the noise enough to forgive herself and hear the one thing she desires most?

Can one truly hear…love?

angies review

 

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

I met this author at a signing in Houston.  We found out we had a mutual friend so I offered a review for her if she wanted.  She happily accepted and here we are.  I had no clue what the story was or anything I just said “send it to me” and BOOM it arrived on my Kindle the next day….

I liked the premise of the story.  Kate and her brother River are in a car accident that killed their parents.  Kate has been tormented by the accident feeling that their parent’s death and her brother’s consequential blindness from the accident are her fault.  She has been a wreck her entire life.  She can’t forget the sounds of the accident and tried to end her life feeling she is not needed in this world.

When the story actually begins Kate meets her neighbor Cooper and his dog Sadie.  Sadie can feel the loneliness radiating of Kate and they form a crazy bond.  Cooper is also along for the dog/human friendship but is curious about the sad but beautiful woman who lives so near.  Kate is a mess about what Cooper is asking from her so she puts it all out there.  She is ready for him to leave because when people find out the crazy train she has been on, that is what they do.  But Cooper won’t leave and in fact becomes more attracted to this strong and brave but broken woman. The story is them trying to find a way to work while Kate’s brother River is trying to stop the relationship from beginning.  Big Brother feels he knows what is best for his sister.

I liked the storyline of Kate’s past because suicide is a tough topic and something that people with depression deal with DAILY.  There is never a “you’re cured” button to give to someone.  I liked the introduction of the Semi Colon tattoo and what Kate tells Cooper it means.  With as heavy as the subject matter of the storyline was, I, the reader, did wish for a bigger emotional attachment.  For me the writing didn’t go near as “heavy” as I would have liked to see it go.

Cooper is a great guy but at times I felt his character was a little off.  He is super sweet and kind but when he goes a bit alpha, in regards to River demanding they stop seeing each other, it seemed off and out of character for him.

The story also seems to have a lot of side story lines that kind of muddle up the main storyline.  I think that those story lines thrown in took away from my reading enjoyment of the main couple.

#ReleaseBoost – Craving Justice by Fiona Archer

 

 

Title: Craving Justice
Series: Sons of Sydney #1
Authors: Fiona Archer
Genre: Erotic Romance
 Release Date: April 21, 2016
Blurb
Four Aussies in Seattle
Once brothers
Now strangers
As an unseen enemy takes aim
Four must stand as one for Justice to survive.

 


A man branded by his past

Seth Justice is tall, daring and dangerous. The former street kid from Sydney owns a thriving technology company in Seattle. But he has bigger goals―or should that be ghosts?―that drive him harder. On the verge of selling his business for a fortune, he’s celebrating when Harper Fox, daughter of the buyer, tumbles into his arms. The curvy café owner enchants him with her sassy personality. Soon they move from easy banter to a night of passion that reveals a sweet vulnerability in the soft-hearted woman.

A woman determined to control her future

After a lifetime of her domineering father’s scorn and rejection, Harper dances to her own beat. She has her café and surrounds herself with a chosen family of her eccentric staff and close friends. While she’s mostly content… her heart aches for more. But Harper has been burned before and doesn’t trust easily. That is, until a man with a panty-melting Aussie accent and a commanding stare entices her to take a chance—on him. When Seth takes charge in the bedroom and ties her control in knots, he awakens a need in Harper that leaves her hungry for more.

A new beginning worth fighting for

When an unseen enemy attacks the new life Seth and his brothers have built, the ensuing disaster tests not only his developing relationship with Harper, but also threatens to sever the last remaining bonds with his brothers. As Seth struggles to protect everything and everyone he loves, he has to determine if Harper is his enemy’s target—or accomplice.

Excerpt
Seth was refreshing and vastly different from the people attending her father’s little cocktail party. These people hid behind well-constructed facades. The football players kept close to each other, as if there was strength in numbers. The men in suits, outwardly bored yet underneath excited as any kid, wanting to get a few words with their favorite player. And the wives of her father’s rich clients, eyeing the buffet of testosterone and fantasizing about secret autograph sessions in a motel somewhere.

She sighed and closed her eyes at the superficiality of it all. When had she become so cynical? She snorted softly. Maybe some of her father had rubbed off on her after all. After years of being an unwilling spectator at his events, she hadn’t managed to escape unscathed.

“I’m guessing from that sigh these parties aren’t your kind of thing.” Seth pointed his glass of beer at the crowd.

Damn, she needed to hide her thoughts better.

“That obvious, huh?” Oh, heck, did he think she found him boring? “It’s me. It’s not you, definitely not … um, I mean, you’re fabulous.” She snapped her mouth shut. Awesome, Harper.

His gaze gleamed with silent laughter.

She sucked in a breath and battled on. “You’re right. These corporate gigs aren’t for me.”

“What is?” Seth sipped his beer.

She thought for a second. “Street markets, hanging with friends over a home-cooked meal, seeing a classic movie at the Grand Illusion Cinema in the University district. The interior is original with red brocade chairs and fancy metalwork. Just divine.” Okay, now she was on a roll. “Oh, and I have to have Milk Duds. Two boxes if I’m with someone, because I don’t share.” If he didn’t understand the importance of candy while watching a movie then she’d leave right now. Some things were sacred.

“I get you on the Milk Duds. I have the same with Allens Jaffas lollies.” At her head tilt, he answered, “Aussie candy I order online and have mailed over. I guard that stuff like it’s the crown jewels. My brother Heath tries to steal handfuls when we watch the rugby. Bastard can get his own.”

Ah, they had a meeting of minds.

“I feel your frustration,” Harper nodded, her tone solemn.

Seth studied her for a moment then, after a quick glance around the garden, asked, “Can I tempt you to leave. Buy you dinner?”

“You tempt me a great many ways, Seth.”

She slapped a hand over her mouth.

The big Aussie’s lips kicked up at one corner, and his low chuckle sounded as if Hades himself was amused.

Under the influence of whatever evil genie now controlled her mouth, she’d just have to ride it out.

His invitation was tempting. Why hang around when her father had clearly dismissed her earlier? After all standing before her was a man who intrigued her and had just asked her out to dinner.

Not exactly a hard choice.

“Just what did you have in mind?” Her voice was calm, unlike the flutter in her tummy.

“Dinner, conversation and a chance to impress you with my suave moves and epic sense of humor.”

Hmm, he was laughing at himself, which was damn sexy, but there was a self-assuredness in the way he stood tall and proud that made her pulse skip. That alone should make her wary. She’d met plenty of cool dudes who turned out to be jerks with all the right words.

Still, Seth seemed so…upfront. And that dry humor was an instant hook for her.

“Confident, aren’t you?”

All teasing fled his eyes. He stepped closer, so close she could smell a hint of aftershave—a rich woody fragrance undercut with warm spices.

His gaze locked with hers as he ran a finger down the side of her cheek, leaving her skin tingling in its wake.

She held her breath and waited.

“I’m a man who knows what he wants. Right now, I want to take you to dinner and find out if you’re as intriguing as the idea of getting to know you promises.” He traced the blunt tip of his finger over the edge of her bottom lip. His touch wasn’t light but…firm, commanding, as if he was giving her a chance to feel him before he took possession. “My guess is I’ll be left wanting more.”

Her breath rushed out in a soft whoosh. Tall, daring and dangerous. That was Seth. Damned if it didn’t make her crave him all the more.

angies review
I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.
I took this book because I love Teresa Gabelman and all of her stories. So of course it was a no brainer for me to read this novella. Then when I looked at the other stories I noticed an author that is attending a signing I am going to would be there as well…double score
Each of these stories are a fun look at the authors and their writing style. I loved Teresa’s story about the Blind Man whose older brother hooks him up with a teacher. It was super funny which is you know her stuff you know writes humor so very well. The teacher and old brother have an instant chemistry and the couple are trying to figure out what the heck is happening between them.
AC Bextor’s story was really angsty so I couldn’t put it down!! The girl who loves the bad boy but agrees to marry the “good boy” brother….oh man, did I wanna throat punch her liker her best friend, Kate and even mom wanted to do to her!! LOL
SR Grey’s book was kinda funny. The girl and her camp roommate’s brother are attracted to each other. They have many “close calls” that stop them from kissing. I laughed at the time the boy dropped acorns on their heads from a tree….LOL I mean it was super funny and I enjoyed reading this story as well. I liked the YA vibe of the book.
Nina Levine’s book has my tattooed hottie heart a pumping. When the girl is attracted to a man whom she assumes is her bosses boyfriend. She is flipping out but when she finds out its her brother…oy vey!!! I laughed at her lack of ability to rock her hot heels as did he. The banter and chemistry of the two were a good giggle to keep me reading for sure!!

#review- Dirty by Kylie Scott

Dirty (Dive Bar, #1)

synopsis

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to burn down the church or sit and cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she’d marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong-maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?

angies review

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

I look forward to a lot of authors and their new releases and Kylie has been one of my favorites.  I was super exited to read her new series after waving good bye to the Stage Dive guys last year.  When we were introduced to Vaughan, I was super excited to see more of him and get his story.  We know that his band breaks up after the tours over and I wondered what was up with him.  Well, Poor Vaughan comes home to a hot mess!!

The story begins with Lydia finding out some stuff about her fiancée literally minutes before walking down the aisle.  So what does any self-respecting woman do….she runs and flings herself over the fence to hide in Vaughan’s house.  She is very surprised when he comes in and finds her there.  Their #CrazyAtFirstSight story them begins.

Lydia and Vaughan have a crazy “I get you” vibe.  They each understand the cray of the other person and that makes an attraction grow…well that and her amazing boobs, hey that is what Vaughan says anyway!!  Vaughan is there when Lydia is dealing with her ex and his family. Then Lydia is there to help him with his family and their bar.  The have a lot of other drama/crazy to deal with and then they find themselves finding trust in the other when the last thing they should be doing is trusting anyone.

I liked the story and giggled a few times but I did feel a bit of a disconnect in the beginning of the story and at times I thought the story was developing slowly but a bit over the top??  Does that make sense???

I did enjoy seeing Vaughan, meeting his sister and the bar employees.  I can’t wait for Twist to come out next year.

Melinda's Review

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

I love Kylie Scott’s work and Stage Dive Series is one of my favorites. I was supper excited when I found out Vaughan was the next book in this new series. I was stoked we were going to get to learn more about him.

This starts off with Lydia about to get married when she finds out the truth about her fiancée. Lydia freaks out and runs only to find herself breaking into a strangers bathroom window trying to get away. Next thing she knows she is a mess cuddled in the tub looking up at a massive man.

Vaughan is taken back by seeing this crazy broken woman in his tub. But there is something there between them or maybe it’s just her boobs at first. They both have drama they are trying to deal with. However, Vaughan tries to help her out and in turn she decides to help Vaughan’s family by helping out at the bar.

I so loved seeing Mal he was a great high point. I wish we could have gotten more of Lydia’s background from pre fiancée days because I really didn’t connect to her and with her strong personality toward the end I think I could have. However, I enjoyed meeting Nell, Boyd, Erica and even Pat and Joe. I cannot wait to see and learn more about these guys.  Now to wait for TWIST to come out.

about the author

Twinsie of the Day Review for Sandrine Gasq Dion

Today we have a very special guest!  Kathy Sepanski is going a review for Sandrine Gasq Dion.

Kathy was the winner of the Kindle Fire during our MM March Madness!  She was very excited about winning and wanted to share her feelings and thoughts for some of her favorite books.

Welcome Kathy!!!  and here’s your tiara for the day!

Twinsie for the Day

Kathy Sepanski

I don’t remember what got me to read one of Sandrine’s books, but after one, I was a total goner.  To the point that on a cruise one year, all I read was her books.

From the “Assassin Shifter” series to the “Santorno’s”.  Love love love. Mateo and Riley and the purple Hippo, and the Youngblood family that keeps growing.
Then came the rockers,  “The Rock Series” was, is so much fun and I am so glad it went with audible.  I purchased the audible as soon as  I could.  And with the introduction of this group of books she introduced me to another M/M author…Ann Lister.  What fun, the mixing of the Rockers!!  I also love how Sandrine has combined the Olympians with the Shifters and how she always has a positive in a world that could be a total negative.  She is not naive or too
syrupy with her books (which is a plus in my opinion).  Sandrine does portray life and its ups and downs and even the evil.  I do love how she brings in the good, and communication into her characters.  I could go on for hours or days, but the simple truth is, read one of Sandrine Gasq Dion’s books ( Start at the Beginning, that’s best) and get hooked.

Happy Reading

Russian Nightmare Full

synopsis

I was stolen from my brother’s bedside by bad men with evil intentions. Tall, dark, and terrifying, Dimitri stands out. He shows tenderness and kindness that the other members of the Russian mob seem incapable of.

There’s something familiar and comforting about him. Something that draws me in. I feel safe when he’s near and long to feel his protective arms around me. The more time I spend with him, the more of my heart he steals and the harder it is for me to fight my attraction to him

I want to trust him, to believe he’ll keep me safe, but secrets begin to surface. Secrets with deadly consequences. Dark secrets that have been following us both for years.

Trusting him threatens to break me. Not trusting him threatens to kill me.

No matter what I choose, my life will never be the same.

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

I took this book without even knowing what it was about…yeah that is how I roll some days!! LOL  I just saw that the author needed some reviews plus I had the time…sooooo….I sat down to read it.

I gotta say, The angst of this book……..OMG SOOO GOOD!!  I mean Bentley (Love the name tbh) and Julianna are super hot…combustable hot.  When Jules learns that her older brother/adoptive brother is getting married she is less than thrilled.  She HATES this future Mrs. Rossi with a passion.  The beginning of the story Jules is pretty self-centered in that she doesn’t realize how needy she is with her brother but given their history it’s an understandable need.  She is trying, unsuccessfully, to be nice to the Barbie fiancée when she meets her brother….Bentley AKA Bent or much cuter Benny.  The two have an instant chemistry.

Initially Bentley just wants to meet this woman who is causing his sister so much distress.  He is curious about what makes her tick.  When they end up spending time together, he can’t stop being drawn to her.  Pretty soon their “friendship” is more than just friends. …but they can’t be more then friends can they??

When we see Jules letting her guard down, I was super excited but then I was tapping Bent asking him when he is gonna spill the beans about Emmy…..I mean I kinda figured one of the secrets and we knew another but it’s never a good idea to withhold the whole truth dude!!

When Bentley and Jules decide to step up this relationship and then the wedding happens, my heart was all over the place….Happy and then devastated!!  I felt the hurt that Jules felt and I understood Bentley reasoning but but but…my heart was still a mess!!

I gotta say, for a book I had ZERO CLUE about I am super excited I took book.  It was a great read and I kinda am curious about the 2nd book about one of the other “brothers” of Jules, Smitty!!!

Her attempt turned into the Burning Lovesick series. You can find Lyssa’s own interests throughout her stories although all stories are fictional.
