C. J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire some day. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.
The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.
She has a loving and supportive family who doesn’t mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story. And a network of friends, who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.
One thing she has learned from life and she is often heard to say is: “You are never too old to follow your dream!”
Mason Kade is not known to be nice. He is ruthless, manipulative, and unforgiving. Most will say that he is an a**hole and he is to those that cross him or cross his loved ones. However, he does not want to be who he is. He does not enjoy hurting others, but there is no limit to the lengths he will go to protect himself and his brother.
This is the story of how he came to be and this is why so many love Mason Kade.
What a great lead into a series. We get to know Mason and Logan Kade. After listening to this story I can understand why these boys are the way they are. After all the heartbreak they have had they fell they need to protect their hearts. Even though each take a different approach to protecting it they are doing what they need to not to be heart again.
Mason and Logan dad is an ass bringing women home night after night. Then his wife leaves him which I don’t blame. These boys loved her and cared about her. They felt sorry for the way their dad treated her and made her cry all the time. So yes, I do have a bit of resentment towards their mom for packing up and leaving.
WOW did these boys have some girl drama. I can see some of these girls causing issues for them in the future. These girls are some of the most deceitful and cut throat girls I have read in a while.
I’m ready to jump into this series. I need to find out the rest of the story about Sam and how she jells with the Kade boys.
I enjoyed this audio book narrated by Graham Halstead. He kept my attention and pulled me into this story.

To keep myself safe I hide in the world and let life move around me.
My new partner, Nathan, isn’t safe. Far from it.
The darkness coils around him, hidden by a shield created by a blinding smile. But those who live in darkness see past the façade we create.
Even in darkness, there is light. A spark that ignites, then explodes.
Every filthy word from his mouth, every possessive touch—I crave them, need them. Violent and passionate and everything I need to fill the void inside me, but one thing is missing.
He can never love me.
More than my heart is on the line, and I don’t know if I’ll survive our breach.
Delilah is just going through the motions in life due to a horrendous childhood. What she is doing is not living, she is merely existing.
Nathan has been battling his demons for years and can’t move forward because of guilt.
2 severely damaged people who can no longer fight their attraction. They finally give in, but at what cost? He made her feel again. She seems to be breaking him further. Will they be able remove past their pasts and finally be happy? Or has too much damage been done in the past for that to even be a possibility?
This was the first book I’ve read by K.I. Lynn. I absolutely loved it! The storyline kept me riveted. I couldn’t put it down, rushing to get to the end. Once I got there I don’t think I have ever cussed so much at a books ending. It’s a major cliffhanger, but I feel it was the perfect way for it to end. I immediately one-clicked book 2, Infraction. I couldn’t wait to see where Nathan and Delilah’s story went from there.
About K.I. Lynn
K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.
Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.
I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.
I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn’t realized how far I could fall or what I’d do to get free.
He has a secret.
I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.
I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Destroyed…what a perfect description of how I felt at a certain point. I ugly cried for at least an hour! I had to take some time to get back to normal before I wrote my review.
Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. My emotions were all over the place. I’ll admit I didn’t like Roan he made me mad on more than one occasion. But then something happened that made me start to root for him. I wanted him to get a HEA, I felt he deserved one. Hazel irritated me at times but I understood where she was coming from & why she did some of the things she did. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil the book. I know this story will stay with me for a long time.
My only complaint is that I didn’t want it to end. Well done Pepper Winters Destroyed was FANTASTIC & it deserves way more than 5 stars!

Can best friends find true love? What if your best friend is your adopted brother?
Griffin can’t fathom his life without Quincy, but he also can’t ignore the crazy sexual attraction buzzing between them.
When Quincy offers up a contract to determine if the sexual tension brewing between them is worth jeopardizing their nearly decade-long friendship, Griffin finds himself helpless to say no.
Will they lose everything they’ve found in each other, or will they seize the opportunity to turn their friendship into something even better?
Forever Better Together is a male/male opposites attract, friends-to-lovers story with delicious sexual tension, a sizzling hot striptease, and emotions guaranteed to punch you in the gut.
The best way i can think of to describe Forever Better Together is as a cute- no so much friends- to friends- to lovers romance.
Griffin is 10 when he comes to live with Quincy’s family. Things start off a bit rocky with the 10 year olds but they quickly become best friends. The 2 are inseparable. Well, until life has other plans. No matter what life throws at them the friends find their way back to each other. Now if they could only admit to each other how they feel, I’m sure it would make both of their lives a whole lot easier.
Griffin and Quincy quickly won over my heart. They are my new favorite characters by A.D. Ellis. I just loved everything about them and their journey! This book is one that I know will stay with me forever. The storyline was just as unique as the characters themselves.

text message can change everything. I found that out the hard way. One minute
I’m complaining about a horrible picture of a guy’s you-know-what, and the
next, I’m having conversations with a stranger. A gorgeous, rebel of a man who
makes my heart skip a beat and does a number on my panties.
problem is we’re not looking for the same things in life. I want stability and
a family, while he always has his eye out for the next good time.
literally be the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Funny, it all started with
an accidental text message. About unwanted male member photos, actually, and
from that moment, I was hooked. She’s the perfect woman really, except for one
tiny little flaw. She’s looking for the one thing that makes me want to run for
the door. Forever.
somehow, I can’t seem to let her go. She might be the one dare I actually fail.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
Absolutely loved Quinn and Royce they had great chemistry and banter no matter if it was in person or between texts. Royce the guy who loves to have fun and Quinn the school principal that cannot back down from a challenge. Gotta love the Double Dog Dares Royce lays down.
Quinn is so done with men, dating, and putting her heart out there. She is ready for the house with the white picket fence. Really how wrong can things go when texting your BFF about her last date sending her inappropriate text pic. Well unless it isn’t really your BFF you just texted and a total stranger. Ok well maybe it doesn’t go that wrong maybe it turns out to be a whole lot of fun.
Royce is never going to settle down or give his heart away to anyone. He is all about having a good time. He is all for a little fun but bringing up commitment and he O-U-T out. When he sees a bomb shell on her porch one night on his evening run, he is ready to have some fun. The question is when things get serious will he run for the hills as usual or will she be the one that makes his feet stay where they are.
The banter between these two is amazing. I think I fell more and more for Royce through out the book. Don’t get me wrong there were times I wanted to shake some since into him but for the most part loved him. I mean how can you not love a guy who takes a girl on the dates he takes her on. Seriously, plus his love of a shelter pup just hand my heart over. I loved Quinn to see her put her heart out there knowing Royce doesn’t want the same things she does but still puts herself out there.
I was laughing with Quinn and Royce through out this one. No matter how scared or unsure Quinn was if Royce throughout the “Double Dog Dare you” you can count on Quinn doing it. I absolutely loved the zipline scene and the dog shelter scene. Lacey Black did a good job on this one I had so much fun reading Quinn and Royce.
is a Midwestern girl with a passion for reading and writing. She carries her
e-reader with her everywhere she goes so she never misses an opportunity to read
a few pages. Always looking for a happily ever after, Lacey is passionate about
contemporary romance novels and enjoys it further when you mix in a little
suspense. She resides in a small town in Illinois with her husband, two
children, and a chocolate lab. Lacey loves shooting guns and should only
consume one mixed drink because she’s a lightweight.
This book was freaking fantastic! I love a good romantic suspense and JM Walker did not disappoint with this one. Broken Scars touched all of my emotions. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my kindle like they could actually hear me. Yep! It made me look crazy, but I don’t care. That makes it a real winner in my book.
Lily is a sweet woman whose life hasn’t always been perfect. She lives with her grandma, works at a retirement home, and spends the majority of her free time alone. And she is fine with that. Well, until she meets Lucas.
Lucas- gah Lucas! He earned a coveted spot on my Top Alphas of All Time list! He had it all; brains, brawn, a heart of gold. He had a very troubled past but he tries his best to not let that define him.
Broken Scars sucked me in from the very first page. It’s a fantastic romantic suspense with a super fine alpha and some oh so hot- blush worthy sexy moments. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to move on after finishing this one but I guess I will have to try.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Two author friends, who go by the name Elizabeth Hayley, tagged me on Facebook about possibly reading their friends new book. Hey, I love those ladies and their books crack me up so if THEY are in love with someone then I will love them too, Right?? I reached out to the author and asked for an advanced copy. OMG am I glad I did. I was laughing soooo hard at some many different lines in the book. I was even texting my friend/blogger/bestie Melinda with lines saying “you have gotta read this book”……
So this story begins with our main character at the bar with her besties Gina and Dale celebrating her birthday. She sees a hottie checking her out but decides against it. She strolls to the bathroom when said hottie finds her annnnd is not so hot….more slimey gross. Well she tries to shake him but he won’t take the hint so a Southern Gentleman plays the part of her “boyfriend” to make slime ball take the hint. Well another situation arises and Mr. Southern Gentleman needs her help again so she ends up lip locking him AGAIN!!!! Well Gina and Dale dare our girl to follow Mr. Southern Gentleman down the hallway to jump his bones but instead she sees slime ball getting killed. Well she runs and gets attacked by Jake, the Southern Gentleman but escapes him. She goes to the police station to report the murder but GASP Mr. Southern Gentleman appears and GASP he is a FEDERAL AGENT!!!!
SOOO Jake and our newly named Emily go into the Witness Protection to help take down Slime Balls killer. Well the chemistry between the two is awesome and she pretty much pouts and offers a no strings attached night but dang it if the bad guys don’t find them. So Jake and Emily go off radar. Jake is hiding Emily without the FBI’s approval. He takes her in to Deliverance country to hide out with his family. They are supposed to be boyfriend/girlfriend…… Which is news to Emily because they fight NONSTOP!!! Which makes the book insanely funny and fullllllll of sexual tension.
So while hiding out Emily and Jake fight over her jealousy of his ex, his jealousy of her flirting, her not being able to be domestic at all, him being overly alpha at every turn of the second hand on your watch, her only thinking about herself, him not taking her feelings into consideration, and on and on and on!! Now sometimes when I read a book like this I am like “seriously, enough already” but not once in this entire novel did I feel bored with them. I was in love with the characters and the story. I was shocked at how fast I flew through this book. I was so busy reading that when I hit 45% I was stunned and then next thing I knew I was at 88%. I mean WHERE DID IT GO!!! The story was just flying by and I wanted to know what would happened but I didn’t want the story to end.
The epilogue made me really happy and laught a lot. The epilogue had everything about the story you wanted to know…like about the boys, the ex, Junior, Henry and Floss and the rest of the town you have come to love.
The story has so many twist and turns. It is soo full of sexual innuendo and sexual chemistry. I yelled at both characters while also yelling with them at the other person. I have to tell you I CANNOT wait for more from this author and this series.
