Not when his touch unravels me,
and the heat between us could set the oceans alight.

But play with fire, and you will get burned.

A fragile heart can easily be broken again.

**

A new standalone contemporary romance from award-winning international bestselling author SC Daiko… a beautiful love story with plenty of heat and angst.

This was my first book by the author and I liked it. Cat and Daniel are both struggling with the loss of their spouses and trying to move forward with their lives & being single parents. They quickly turned into a little family due to their kids friendship and I loved it! Daniel gave me whiplash😂 one minute he’s a hottie & the next second he’s a brute🤷🏾‍♀️ but they had good chemistry! I loved how they couldn’t stay away from each other when Daniel wasn’t being too much of a brute. I loved the epilogue!






My cottage backs onto woodland, and there’s a path leading through it. Birdsong and the scent of blackberries fills the air. I let Toby off his leash and he immediately starts foraging for anything edible… wild fruit being his favourite snack.
I leave him to it and stride on ahead, knowing he’ll catch up in good time. Soon I come to a glade where the trees have been thinned out. Oh shit, standing in the middle of the clearing is Daniel. He’s bare-chested and dressed in running shorts, doing stretching exercises braced against a fallen tree trunk.
I slow my footsteps, treading quietly on mouldy old leaves, and rake my gaze over him. His thick almost-black hair is dripping sweat; it falls down his face and the back of his solid neck. His beard is unkept and wild-looking. But it’s his powerful body that mesmerises me and I study the tats on his muscular arms, tempted to get closer for a better look. God, he’s beautiful, I suddenly realise. Beautiful but freaking scary at the same time.
I release a slow breath. Stop it, Cat. You shouldn’t be looking at him that way. The man in front of you is a brute. You need to keep your distance from him.
Slowly, my heart pounding against my ribcage, I turn around and prepare to make my way back down the path. Except, Toby comes bounding up and starts to bark.
Dammit!
Daniel freezes on the spot. His eyes crash into mine, and if I was scared before now I’m practically peeing myself. He straightens himself to his full height, still glaring at me, not saying a word.
Toby keeps barking, but he’s also wagging his tail. I grab hold of his collar and fasten the lead. “Sorry to disturb you.” I bite at my lips. “We’ll get out of your way.”
He arches an eyebrow. “So, you weren’t following me?”
“Oh, God, no. We were just going for a walk.”
I’m still staring at his tats, trying to decipher the intricate patterns. He catches my gaze, and I feel my face burning up.
“Get on with your walk, then,” he says through gritted teeth. “Leave me alone.”
My fingernails dig into the palms of my hands. “No need to be bad-mannered.”
He crosses his arms in front of his broad chest and lets out an edgy laugh.
“You are a prick,” I spin around, “the rudest man I’ve ever met.”
He laughs again and keeps laughing mockingly as I stride off down the pathway, Toby at my heel

Beautiful Savage by Victoria Ashley review!

Synopsis from Goodreads

JAXON KADE

I can’t breathe… I don’t want to. With every breath that fills my lungs, I feel the pain she’s been fighting and it’s killing me slowly, reminding me of the day she got ripped away.

I’ve gone thirteen years without her, and as if she was never gone, she walks back into my life, feisty as hell and set on running from me.

I refuse to let that happen.

She’s my Lex. It doesn’t matter if I have to destroy everything in my path that leads to her—I will.

I’ve been in love with her since the age of nine. I lost her once, and you better damn well believe that I will walk through the fires of Hell before losing her again.

She’s broken…

Ripped apart by the fucking world. I’m making it my mission to piece her back together again and claim her as mine.

Every part of her sexy body has been possessed by me.

I know she sees she’s not the only one who has changed with time. I’m rough, demanding, and just as damaged as she is.

But there’s one thing I’m capable of—always have been—and that is loving her.

I promise to do everything in my power to show her, no matter what it takes or how much it hurts.

ALEXANDRA ADAMS

I never thought I’d lay eyes on Jax Kade again, and the moment I realized the rough, edgy man I allowed to take me home and rough-fuck me was him… my world came crashing down around me.

I’m no good for him.

Not for the sweet, protective Jax that took care of me back when no one else would.

I’m damaged, unrepairable…

I need medicine to escape this reality—the pills, cocaine, and liquor aren’t even enough to numb the pain of my past.

Years without Jax destroyed me—ruined me forever—and being back in his life will only ruin him the same.

I could never do that to my beautiful Jax. I never meant to find him, and I sure as hell never meant to want him again as much as I did before we were ripped apart.

It doesn’t matter that I need to stay away from him. It doesn’t matter that I fight to keep my distance. Jax refuses to let me go.

He doesn’t care how fucked up I am. My biggest fear is destroying the only person I’ve ever been capable of loving, but he’s not giving me any other choice…

My thoughts 💭

I love Victoria Ashley she always comes through with a great read! Once I started I couldn’t put it down. Lex and Jax grew up together. Lex had an abusive father and Jax had a drug addict mother. They were there for each other as much as 2 kids could be until Lex’s dad moved them away in the middle of the night. Alex comes back to town years later but she’s struggling with depression and is a drug addict. She wants to stay away from Jax but they end up in each other’s arms anyway. Alex tries to fight it at first but Jax refuses to let Alex go again and is determined to get her clean. Jax is tough but he’s such a sweetheart for Lex and I couldn’t help but love him!!

Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas review!

Synopsis from Goodreads

JORDAN

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.

I have to stop this. It can’t happen.

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one.

I am.

PIKE

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.

And her boyfriend’s father.

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.

My thoughts 💭

I was kind of afraid to read this one because I was unsure how Pike and Jordan were going to get together but I’m so glad I did! Pike and Jordan were hot! They tried to fight their attraction to each other since Jordan was his son’s ex and also living with them 👀 which was nice and all but their chemistry was crazy and could only be denied for so long. This book will have you laughing and hot & bothered and I loved every minute of it!

“It’s pink on the inside too.” I tell her “Pink cake, I mean”

…..when I read this I died….do you hear me?!? Died.😂😂 I loved Pike and Jordan’s story! I definitely recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s Holy Matrimony, Baby by Misti Murphy review!



Title: It’s Holy Matrimony, Baby
Author: Misti Murphy
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Series: 







So many women spend their lives dreaming of their wedding day. Their mother’s dress. The walk down the aisle. The disgustingly perfect bouquet.
Yeah, that’s not me. I don’t believe in the idea that love is more than a complex chemical equation with an expiration date. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s a curse.
But I have a secret…
A weakness…
A mistake…
Nox Casey is rock star gorgeous. Broody, blue eyed and built, he’s a fallen god among mortals. And he’s driving me crazy. When he looks at me science goes out the window. When he speaks my body catches fire like Hendrix’s guitar. And when he plays me…
Did I mention he’s my husband? I married him.
And now he won’t let me go.

This is my first book by this author and I loved it! Nox and Beck get married in Vegas after a night drinking away their sorrows and she leaves the next morning without giving Nox her number or anything! They end up bumping into each other almost 2 years later and she asks for a divorce…..he doesn’t give it to her because of a deal he made with her BFF. She tries everything she can to get him to sign the papers but he’s stubborn then they end up falling for each other(happy sigh)! Their story was so cute I couldn’t stop reading!















This Radio Love (Standalone In The Casey Brothers Series)



Misti Murphy is a sadistic b*tch who loves to emotionally torture fictional people. If she did that in real life she’d probably end up in prison or a psych ward so she prefers to create dirty talking alphas and the sexually frustrated women who fall into their beds. And if someone needs to be smacked upside the head before f*cking turns to love then that makes her very happy indeed. 


She’s a huge believer in flaws making us human, and that not everyone likes bacon. She’s also addicted to chocolate and scared of the effects of the coming shortage. She swears like a f*cking trooper, and thinks that graphic smuttiness should be as real in fiction as it is in real life. 


When she’s not writing she’s the perfect housewife and mother. Ha bloody ha! When she’s not writing she’s hiding in a cupboard with her kindle, scoffing chocolate, and stalking facebook.
