#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review – BUT FIRST COFFEE by Sarah Darlington

 

Title: But First, Coffee

Author: Sarah Darlington
Release Date: September 10th
Series: Love & Coffee, Book 1
BLURB:
She’s the boss.
I’m only a barista in her company.I really don’t give a f**k about her one way or the other.

And then there’s Doug Maddox, a man with a lot of power over me. He’s blackmailing me. Making me spy on her. I’m supposed to find her weaknesses and destroy her. But the closer I get, the more the lines between us start to blur.

She’s sweet. She’s kind. She’s sexy as hell.
Why am I the only man who see’s this?

So now I’m stuck—between keeping my sister safe against Doug, because that’s what’s really at stake here, and these feelings I can’t deny for a woman who shouldn’t mean anything to me.

I know what I have to do. I’ll destroy her.
It doesn’t matter if I have to destroy my own heart in the process.

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

I love Sarah’s books and sign up to review them when I get the forms.  Something about the way she writes and her kinda but not really insta-love….dude its romance and I like it.

So Joe and Lana……ok when I read the blurb of the book I thought it was gonna be like the movie You got mail.  Remember that movie in the 90’s with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks…I mean Joe is watching Lana to undermine her and all that jazz…..so I was all in with the book.

But I think I got so much more in the book.  There is a lot of chemistry, lust and ANGST people.  Sarah is the queen of angst.  Have you read her other series??? OMG so good!!  The story was a great book with blackmail to save our sister but falling for your target.  We soon discover many layers of Joe and Lana plus the other characters, Kitty and Doug.  We see the main couple falling in love while trying to figure out what to do and also looking ahead to Kitty’s book.  Maybe the spoiled brat will soon learn a thing or two about love.

#WOTR19 #FREE #Review #Throwback – Kill Devils Hills by Sarah Darlington

Kill Devil Hills (Kill Devil Hills, #1)

He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.

His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be…stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.

Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.

Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.

Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?

THROWBAK REVIEW – July 2014

4.5 star rating but rounded up

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

WOW!! I picked this book for a blog tour based on that awesome blurb and boy was I happy I did. I fell in love with social outcast Noah. He just lept in from the first chapter…errr first PAGES and stole my heart and TBH the book. He was not your typical “hero” with the fact of the age difference to Georgie and just his quiet and kinda grumpy being but WOW!! Then when we hear what he tells Ellie at the bar about her sister, his Wild Card……OMG the thud of my heart and the swooning couldnt be contained.

This book I picked because I thought it would be this intense and deep book (and I kinda like deep and intense) but I was actually shocked at how easy and light it was based on the subject matter…suicide. Am I taking away from the novel, ABSOLUTELY NOT!! I was just shocked at what I thought would be but wasnt….make sense???? I mean I was expecting mega tears but got mega heart thumping instead…….

Georgie tries to kill herself but drunk Noah, her sisters BFF, walks in and saves her. The two then form an instant bond and four months later when she returns home from her “rehab” of sorts , they have this strange chemsitry…but wonderful chemsitry. Noah never notices Georgie before and WOW does he notice her now. Georgie always thought Noah was a hot and brooding but scary as heck guy. I loved the way the story of them and how they danced around what they were feeling with each other through the novel. My abso favorite parts were the bar scene and when Noah talks to her parents about his “intensions”…..But the scene that made me fall totally, 110% fast and hard was noah’s reason for sleeping on certain sides of the bed…OMG I just cant even begin to tell you how much I loved that man after that scene. It is a crazy kinda love.

I cannot wait for more from this series. I need to know about Ben and his mystery woman, Ellie and why she was smoking and of course I need more of Noah and his Wild Card.

Sarah Darlington grew up in a military family traveling the United States –although, she’s called Virginia home for most of her adult life.

#review – CRAZY SEXY NOTION by Sarah Darlington

Title: Crazy Sexy Notion
Author: Sarah Darlington
Release Date: January 2, 2018
Standalone. Full-length. HEA.
COVER DESIGNED BY:  LETITIA HASSER, RBA DESIGNS
My former best friend…is now a hooker…
 
MICK
After a terrible breakup, the crazy notion hit me to look up my childhood friend. With half a country between us, I haven’t seen Raven since the day my dad rushed in and saved me from the Sandy Hill Trailer Park. But I loved Raven as a boy, and now I need to find out if I could love her as a man. Only problem: her profession.
Come to find out—she’s a prostitute.
 
RAVEN
Mickey Lawson
Yeah, I hate that guy.
Really, he’s only a faint memory now, but at one point in time he meant everything to me.
My protector. My savior. My best friend.
I was ten.
Then he left.
Now he’s back.
Fifteen years too late.

 

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

When I saw the sign ups for the book I jumped because I am a fan of Sarah’s other series.  Boy was I stunned at the different theme this book carried then the others I have read…LOL

This book is about a guy, Mickey, who decides to go and find his best friend after 10 years of being gone because he father took him away from the poverty he was living in.  Mickey has grown up in a lavish life with his father’s money and was fortunate to play baseball but there has never been someone to take ahold of his heart like Raven did.  Mickey is a little bit stunned to find out his girl is a prostitute when he goes to find her and she has a child.  Not really the reunion he was thinking it would be.

Raven loved Mikey but he abandoned her when she was 10.  He has become the past and she is all about the future.  She needs to take care of her and her child not daydream about the past.  I loved her sassy persona.  She is not taking Mickeys crap and he soon realizes his womanizing ways will not work on her at all.

The story was cute and I liked the idea of a long lost love returning to claim you.
