Cry For You
by Shaniel Watson
Publication Date: March 13, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
You know how the story goes. Don’t you?
Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.
Not this story.
Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.
I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.
He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.
If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…
💕💕 My Review for Cry For You 💕💕
Holy crap. This is my first Shaniel Watson book, but she is now one of my favs!
I don’t think I have cried during a story this much since Pet by Isabella Starling. This book is so emotional. But Shaniel did a great job with the issues that she decided to deal with. The back and forth from then and now was beautifully done. I loved this story!

Add in a crazy Vegas weekend
Lick and Swallow.
What do you get? A recipe for disaster.
Last night I got married.
I’m not exactly sure.
I was drunk off my ass, so it’s not exactly crystal clear.
But, I woke up with a ring on my finger, a marriage certificate, and a sneaking suspicion I had a wild wedding night.
Oh, and a bride who is long gone.
Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay here. Sometimes it takes off running.
But a runaway bride is the least of my problems.
Now I’m chasing after my runaway bride with divorce on my mind.
What could go wrong?
This is book 3 in the series, but is self-contained and can be read as a standalone.
HEA inside and absolutely no cheating of any kind.
I whimper when the damn ping of my phone won’t hush. I squint, opening one eye—and one eye only.Sweet Jesus on a turnip truck, I drank way too much last night. I warned Hope I didn’t do weddings. I hate them. She was in Vegas, everyone knows you do the deed at a quicky drive-thru chapel somewhere and get it done—if you are ever crazy enough to say “I do.”
I won’t… ever.
Slowly the room begins to come into a focus… it’s a blurry focus, but still.
The first thing I notice is everything hurts.
Even my hair.
Definitely had too much to drink. The second thing I notice is I’m not in my one-room apartment, lying on my broken-down, never comfortable, probably ruining my back forever, futon.
I’m in a bed. A really soft bed. I’m also in what appears to be a very fancy room. A room with entirely too much sunshine coming in through the windows. My gaze immediately goes to the open glass doors that lead out to a balcony. When I look around I can see I’m not only in a strange hotel room, I’m in one that costs bank.
Lots of bank.
Then, I just happen to notice the crumpled wedding dress on the concrete floor of the balcony.
That’s when panic begins, as memories flood through my mind.
Memories of the night before.
Of course, it might not be the crumpled dress that brings those back quite as much as the huge leg—not that leg—wrapped over mine, the arm currently wrapped across my stomach and the third leg—yes, that “leg”—pushing against my ass.
I look down at the milk chocolate beast of an arm and I swear the female bits between my legs tingle as memories of the night before flood through me. Memories of… Titan. I have the strongest urge to wiggle against the semi-aroused cock pressing against my ass, but I don’t. I hold myself really still.
Because I’m in the middle of the biggest panic attack ever.
I can’t remember all of what I did last night. It’s a blur of devil’s juice, eating the worm—disgusting, by the way, and I may never drink tequila again—and sex… so much sex.
Sex everywhere. Bed, floor, shower, closet—don’t ask—and against the wall. Sex against the floor-to-ceiling window with my ass mooning the strip, but… sex on that balcony after I was stripped of my wedding dress is the one that sticks in my mind. Sex where I hung over the concrete balcony screaming, “Fuck me, harder, Big Daddy,” while Titan did indeed fuck me harder for everyone and anyone to see. There are other balconies close by. I can’t be entirely sure who saw us… or who we may have scarred forever.
Because, let’s face it, sex in real life is never like the porn movies.
I slide out of the bed an inch at a time—panic making my heart slam against my chest so loud I want to cry, because my head hurts like hell. Titan grumbles but flops over on his back, still asleep. I stand there looking down at him and I can’t move.
He’s that beautiful.
✨✨My Review for Taking it Slow✨✨
Oh, my God, I loved this book. I love this family. I love this storyline.
Faith and Titan have one wild night, which in the first chapter you can figure out all on your own. Jordan is not afraid to describe in detail what these two do 🙂 But when Faith figures out that they are married, she hits the bricks. There is no way she is going to stay around and be told she isn’t wanted.
Titan wakes up and finds he is married but no wife can be found. But when he does find her, HAHA now the fun begins. Not only does he have to deal with Faith and her craziness if that is what you want to call it. But her family and Ida Sue. Whom we all love!

Have you ever wondered what would happen if your high school crush finally noticed you?
What if it happens 12 years later?
I’ve only loved one man in my life.
He made my high school days a nightmare.
Not because he loved me.
Not because he hated me.
But because he had no idea who I was.
He was the popular guy with the chiseled abs, dark tan and perfect hair.
You know the type.
The type that only dated the perfect-ten, cheerleader.
I was the loner.
The nerd who hated high school and couldn’t wait to say goodbye.
And I did—to Freemont High and to Gavin.
The last thing I expected was to see him again twelve years later.
Yet here he is.
Only this time—he notices me.
This time—he kisses me.
This time saying goodbye to Gavin O’Leary might destroy me.
Novella introducing a brand new series.
Instant lust that took twelve years to explore. Safe read with an Alpha who knows what he wants and goes after it–HARD
✨✨My Review for Going Down Hard ✨✨
Yes, this is a shorter book by Jordan Marie. But it is a wonderful story. A story about young love never dealt with and when the two meet again things are a lot different. Casey is trying to make her way through Hollywood doing makeup for the actors.Gavin is stunt devil to his friend Aden when he bumps into Casey. These two are wonderful characters and I loved this story.
I did a bad thing.
I did a really bad thing.
I’m not a bad person, I swear. I just made a few mistakes.
Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith.
Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.
Mistake number three was saving his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.
When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, I panic.
Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!
He might have been the one in an ambulance, but I’m sinking in a bed of lies, going down fast—and there’s not a rescue in sight.
✨✨My Review for In Too Deep✨✨
As always Jordan Marie brings the most emotions out of her writing. I laughed, cried, and was plain mad at Aden and Holly at times. We met Aden in the last book and we knew or should have known that he has some major issues with trust and women. Not all the time together but some major issues all the same. So when he goes to hide out in Idaho with one of the only people in the world that don’t know who he is things take a weird a turn.
Holly has a lot of things in her life going on and having some intitled man show up and treating her like crap is the last thing she needed. So when she finds herself in a little bit of trouble she finds herself lying to the one person she finds herself loving.
Yes, these two should probably not be together but they just might find happily ever after. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

-My Review for Fragile Innocence-
🎆🎆 Book hangover🎆🎆
This is my first Dani René book and I knew from the description that this story was going to be dark. But this story is so much more.
It’s dark, emotional, disturbing, sad, hopeful, and finally loving. So much goes on with these three characters and they are all flawed, but that is why you fall in love them. And why they fall in love with each other.
This story is so real that it takes your breath away. And it is true. Every person that goes through a tragedy like this and comes out at the end is STRONG.
This is a must-read book. #oneclick!

What can’t T.L Smith write? This is a story of two people that want to love each other but there is no way for them too.
It starts out with them seeing each other after years of hurt, pain, and selfishness has become the norm for them. Then T.L brings us to the past.
Sass (Barbie) is a poorer child that is at a rich school on a scholarship. She goes to school with her cousin (rich snob kind of girl) Livia and a couple friends. Sass isn’t big on boys or parties. She wants out of the town they are living in and school is the answer.
Ryken is in school until he can take over for his father. Daddy owns all the strip clubs in town and is the man of the underground (although it is the unknown secret in town). Nobody messes with Ryken’s family or people start coming up missing. But when he starts paying attention to Barbie he knows he is asking for trouble.
Sass and Ryken are a couple that can never be but is destined to hurt each other always. Ryken and Livia are the couple to go forward and hurt everyone else and still fall into bed together with no remorse.
This is the first book of the duet. I am at a loss at how to characterize what I felt when I finished this book. Ryken is such a sh*t for what he does to Sass at the end. And who knows what Livia is up to now. Sass finally has a backbone and is now being sent away, but who knows if she will break again. Love is not always enough. We will see if it is in the next book!

My Review about Safe in His Storm
This is my first Annalise book and I loved it. Safe in His Storm is a story between Gabi and Jake. It is surrounded by the D/s theme so if that is not your kind of reading don’t read this story.
Gabi is a troubled young woman that is living her life to the fullest that she can get without dealing with her past. She is happy letting her past memories staying there and moving forward. When her friends have a wedding that she is in charge of putting together she finds out a little about the D/s lifestyle.
Jake has just dealt with his wife/submissives death. It has been a year and a half and he is ready to get back out there. He doesn’t know what he is really ready for but he knows he is ready for something. So when he sees Gabi at the wedding he knows what he wants.
Jake finding out Gabi has no idea what D/s is isn’t sure if he wants to take a newbie under his wing, but the chemistry between them is too much for him to deny. And Gabi is willing to try but is very honest about maybe not being what he is needing. So we are walked through the two of them learning each other. But while we are doing this (which is not boring or long) we start to learn a little about Gabi and her past. Which she is still adamant about not wanting to remember.
With this being a duet we are left with a cliffhanger. But it is one I am waiting for!

Then, a moment of guilt passed over him when he realized he hadn’t thought about Lisa like he used to. Oh, she was there on a daily basis, but not like it had been before. Not the same deafening, emptiness he’d grown used to. Now, it was more of a dull ache only felt when summoned. And with that thought, he
dismissed any lingering guilt. He’d said his goodbye and was moving forward the way he’d intended. And he’d
tell Gabrielle about her soon enough. “Yes,” he simply replied.
Annalise Delaney’s love of romance spans from tales of knights in shining armor bravely rescuing the girl to those of damsels who need rescuing but put up a fight—because what fun would it be otherwise?
Writing occupied her time when age-appropriate books put her to sleep. However, the books tucked in the bottom drawer of her mother’s dresser overflowed with love, lust, betrayal, and revenge—making for far better reads. VC Andrews’ imaginative and twisted stories started it all.
