Will Lane’s actions prove to her that charm and substance can coexist? Will she believe he’s always going to have her back?

My Thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this hot and sweet small town romance! After receiving some bad news Edie drives to her new home to start a new life where she meets Lane. Lane is a sweetheart and you couldn’t help but adore him! Lane and Edie’s chemistry was amazing! I definitely recommend this if you enjoy insta-love stories!

Allie

When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.

Jess

I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jesse Jesse Jesse! I loved this book so hard! The characters were so lovable. The chemistry between Allie and Jess was amazing ! This was a hot and sweet read I enjoyed reading and definitely recommend!

“Did you hear that?” I ask.

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips.

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me.

I give a slight shake of my head in response.
“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?”

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance.

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding.
My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys.
Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless.

“Was that convincing enough?”

Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.

Trayis by Laurann Dohner review!

Length:262 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Purchased

Synopsis

Growing up mostly human in a Lycan pack has been hard for Shay. Shunned and distrusted by most, she wouldn’t have survived without the support of her foster family and alpha. She’s had a longtime secret crush on Trayis, her alpha’s VampLycan half-brother. Shay thinks he’s hot and finds the courage to approach Trayis during one of his infrequent visits. She’s hoping for just one night of ecstasy before she spends her life alone, unwanted.

Trayis is stunned when he realizes the sweet, timid Shay is interested in bedding him. He’s also furious when some pack women attempt to humiliate her in front of him. He’s more than happy to pick her over one of them. She might not be his type but it’s just sex. He’s up for that. What he doesn’t plan on is how she makes him feel.

So much for a simple vacation and a one-night stand.

My Thoughts 💭

I liked this book. Shay can’t shift so some of the pack members treat her like she’s less. Her bestie and her make a pact to go after the ones they want and it leads her to Trayis. Trayis is so protective and sweet with Shay. I loved their chemistry. Their story was sweet with a little drama.

Release Blitz/ARC Review: Malice & Obscene by Natalie Bennett!

Series: Dahlia Saga
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 28, 2019



●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

Malice (Dahlia Saga #1)


Everyone knows the stories about naïve girls being taken by beautiful monsters.

Often the monster is a tortured soul with a fucked up past, but even then, that monster is redeemable.

This is not one of those stories.

My monster revels in the carnage he creates.

Our story is not one where good prevails and the villain becomes a hero.

My reality is dark.

His demons are darker.

And though I love my monster, this is no fairytale.

There is no happily ever after.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Omg! Julian is really a master manipulator and I felt for Morgana! She was absolutely crazy too and just wanted to get better! This book was crazy good and I definitely recommend reading this dark story!

●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

Obscene (Dahlia Saga #2)


Love is a tragedy designed for two.
What would you endure to see it through?

I was nothing.
He was both madness and paradise.

I was innocent.
He was twisted, harboring sadistic secrets.

I was a malignant obsession.
Now I am his most prized possession.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is just as amazingly disturbing as the the first! I’m not even sure how to describe Mason or Katie😂. Mason absolutely plays with Katie’s mind and it drove me crazy how he would barely answer her questions. I definitely recommend the Dahlia Saga if you’re into the dark and twisted.

Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.

When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

Blog Tour/ARC Review: Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills!

BB - BT banner.jpg

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive.

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.

There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”

“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.

Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”

Another grin. “Liar.”

Muse by Alexa Riley & Fiona Davenport!

Length: 95 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Shelby Walsh is struggling to make ends meet. She spends her days doing singing telegrams for extra cash, but she never expected to be sent out to perform for the world’s most famous composer. And definitely not in a skimpy Greek goddess outfit. How is she supposed to keep it together when every part of her is screaming for him to take her?

Theo Hayes is a recluse. He just wants to be left alone to work on his next big movie score. He’s even grumpier than usual because he’s in a bit of a rut. But when his brother sends him a singing telegram for inspiration, he finds his muse and plans to never let her go. Keeping her for his very own is the only option.

My Thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this quick read! Theo is having writers block and as soon as Shelby lands on his door step he’s able to hear the music again. I love these alpha men they write and how they refuse to let the woman they’ve fallen in love with out of their sight.

Release Blitz/ARC Review: I Promise You By Shantel Tessier!

Title: I Promise You
Series: Dare #2
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Contemporary RomanceRelease Date: April 26, 2019

Blurb
It was supposed to be a game.

I Dare You.

We brought her in ’cause I wanted to play with her. 

Destroy her.

But plans change and she got caught in the cross fire. 

Then I did something far worse. I fell in love with her, but
she doesn’t know I still have secrets.
Ones that could rip us all apart. 

We’re sharks.

Raised to hunt and kill.

We take what we want without asking.

We’ve never needed permission, so I’m not about to start
now.
You think you know everything, but we’re about to do what we
do best and prove you wrong-I Promise You!

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I liked this book. I still absolutely love Cole and Austin! You get some of the sharks point of view in this one which has me very interested in getting Deke’s story! This book also answers the questions you were left with at the end of I Dare You. The secrets, lies and revenge are still intense as ever. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

Synopsis

Maliki

Vicious.

Nyx

Chaotic.

Maliki + Nyx

Vicious. Chaotic. Gods.

What once was sweet has turned vile.

I covet death.

He thrives in darkness.

Our sacrilegious desires run rampant.

Our maleficent demons demand to be sated.

Mercy finds no refuge in our hearts.

Insanity takes courtship within our minds.

Together, we embark on a path saturated in blood and rotting corpses.

We won’t stop until we find what we’re looking for.

If we must set this world on fire, we’ll do it and dance in the flames.

When this is over, you’ll hear the crows singing our names.

My Thoughts 💭

OMG Maliki and Nyx are so crazy and I absolutely loved them! They are just as crazy as the first generation and it makes me so happy 😂! Maliki and Nyx are both damaged but they fit amazingly well together! I actually loved them more than I thought I would! The twists and secrets have me soooo ready for the next book! If you’ve made it this far with the badlands series you already know what’s up! These characters are crazy, broken and viscous but we love them anyway.

Mated To The Reaper by Alexa Riley!

Length:59 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Ariella Sterling was raised by a coven of vampires, but she was different than the rest of them. She was a miracle from the time she was born, and her parents worried about her safety. She was protected and cherished like no other because of her abilities, but something has changed since her eighteenth birthday. There’s a pain growing inside her and she doesn’t think she’s going to make it much longer. When the Grim Reaper walks in everything changes and now she’s got to fight for what’s hers.

Grim Reaper has spent years alone carrying out what he’s destined to do. But when he’s called to take another immortal soul, he realizes this one is different. From the moment he sees Ariella, he knows she’s his mate, but her family steps in and tries to keep them apart. They can do what they want, but there’s no stopping Death, and he’s going to fight for what’s his.

Warning: Does this all seem crazy to you? Well, that’s because it is! The Grim Reaper is here to fall in love and we’re supporting it one hundred percent! Sit back and enjoy their story without all the little details that don’t matter. It’s steamy good fun and we hope you love it, just like we do.

My Thoughts 💭

Ariella and Grim were so adorable…nobody was going to keep them apart! Grim has been alone with the burden of being the reaper and Ariella has been feeling like she’s dying since she was 18. It finally feels like she’s going to die and she discovers her body was just calling for her mate Grim. Grim just wanted her to be happy and protected and he totally did that! This was a nice quick read.
