About Dirty Bet
Wanna make a bet?
I bet you I can make any woman in New York famous.
The lanky girl with the unfortunate haircut who works in the bike shop?
Sure, you’re on. I’ll date her, do her, and make her shine.
And I bet I can do it all without falling for her.I never make a bet I can’t win. So when I bet my friend I can make any girl in New York just as famous as me, he picks one for me.Ruth Biederman. She works in a bike shop in Brooklyn. She’s got a nice smile and some cute freckles, but everything from her hair to her clothes are a total disaster. I’ve got my work cut out for me.First, I’ve gotta get her to date me. Easy enough, right? I’m not just a billionaire, I’ve got the charm to back it up. She’s as good as mine.But it turns out she’s suspicious. Go figure.I convince her I’m legit, and we go out a few times. We start making headlines too, turns out that dating down really brings my reputation up.Just when things are looking good, I make the one mistake I swore I wouldn’t: I fall for her. Maybe it’s because the sex is mind-blowing, or maybe it’s because when I get those glasses off her, that look in her eyes gets me hard as a rock.It’s not what I planned for, and the terms of the bet are…dirty…to say the least. If I lose, it’s going to mean I have to break her heart. And even if I win, can I really live with such a dark secret between us?

I wanted to like this book more than I did. Two grown men so bored with their lives that they have to go and bet on messing with some woman life. So I thought okay we will see how this ends. I didn’t even get to the end. I could not understand how this grown man who runs a billion-dollar company acts like a child and then expects women to fall in love with him.

About Temporary Wife

Fake marriages have rules. We break all of them.
Ryder Drake is the devil.
The billionaire architect exudes power and privilege from every pore in his body. Toronto magazines fawn over him, calling him one of the hottest single men in the city.
Color me unimpressed. Ryder’s new skyscraper will cut off access to the waterfront for all but the ultra-rich, and I’m determined to stop it.
Then he asks me to marry him.
It’s a business deal, nothing more. He needs a fake wife and I need money. It should be uncomplicated.

Rule 1: No kissing.
Rule 2: No sex.
Rule 3: No falling in love.

I break the first rule within the hour. The second rule? I last less than a week before I give in to Ryder’s raw, animal magnetism. Repeatedly. Before the wedding. After the wedding. With toys. Without toys. I’m having the best, naughtiest, steadiest sex of my life.
And rule 3? I’m Ryder’s temporary wife. No matter what happens, I can’t forget that our marriage isn’t real.

I love Tara’s books and this one is no different. Ryder and Zoe are awesome characters that deserved their happy ending, This is a shorter but just as wonderfully sweet story. I would recommend it to anyone that loves romance.

About Enough

Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and lying, whoremongering men.
One woman would never be enough for one man.
So I traded in men for a Harley.
Nothing beats that kind of power between my legs.
Then I blinked.
And he was there.
Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and badge bunnies willing to hop into my bed.
The only problem is I’m a one woman kind of man.
In my line of work, I’ve seen it all.
Nothing bothers me until I find a woman’s wrecked body.
When she blinked,
My world changed.
Forever doesn’t come close to giving me enough of her.

Great first story
This is my first Danielle Norman story and I really enjoyed it.
Ariel is so anti relationship its not even funny. But when she is almost kidnapped in broad daylight a cop is there to save the day.
Kayson is that cop. Sometimes love happens that fast. He has a crazy and lovable family. He is an honorable man. And I really loved him.
Loved this story and really enjoyed it. On to the next one.

About Almost:

Some people are unforgettable.
Like, the first sheriff that pulled you over for speeding.
The first person to kiss you senseless on the hood of a car.
And, the first guy to make you orgasm.
But, when all of those things are from the same man; let’s just say unforgettable doesn’t even come close.
I wonder if he ever thinks about me and everything we ALMOST had.
Oh, he remembers and he’s prepared to put his money where his mouth is…


So as not a fan of second-chance stories this one was not up there as my favorites. It takes a lot to make me like second chance stories and this one missed a bit for me. It took a bit for me to even get through this story. I love the characters in these books, but these two for me just didn’t do it.

About Impact:

They always say that two wrongs don’t make a right…
Well, she was wrong for breaking into a house that didn’t belong to her; even if she and her daughter had nowhere else to go.
And, I was wrong for watching her on the surveillance camera as she moved through the house and climbed into bed.
So I offered her a job and a home.
Her smile…
Her curves…
Wrong has never felt so right.
Now, I want to make the biggest impact yet… I want to make her mine.

So I have been waiting for another of the Christakos boys to fall and it just happens to be Damon this time. BTW I love their family!
When Damon finds a child’s sock and other things in his construction site he decides to install surveillance equipment throughout. So while watching them, he finds that a woman and her child are sneaking in and staying the night on his property. He decides to help her instead of calling the cops.
Katy is then taken in as part of this wonderful family. And when the Christakos take in someone they don’t do it halfway. But as everything does, Katy’s past comes back to bite her. Will Damon fight for his future or will he let her go?
I really enjoyed this story! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review

About Often:

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations…
He wore suits and I wore biker boots.
He went to University and I went to Trade school.
He lived in a big home and I lived in a tiny apartment.
When my world was turned upside down,
he took me in his arms and promised to help me find a new direction.
Now I’ve lost my job,
been separated from my friends,
and any day an eviction notice was bound to show up.
Unfortunately, my journey was tougher than he had imagined.
When nothing goes right, look who’s left.


I have to say that I love these group of girls. They love their families and bikes. Who doesn’t want to read something like that?

Leo and Ian are a wonderful couple. You can feel their love coming through this book. But a lot of things come between their relationship not in their making.

No matter what happens between Leo and Ian they have a family that will help them through with friendship, love, and respect and that is what makes these books so wonderful.

You should read these books in order. And I would highly recommend them!

About Professor Next Door

I f@ck my students… I just can’t seem to keep it in my pants when these young sexy women throw themselves at me!
But now, I must stop behaving like such a d**k, not that my dead wife would care…
If I get caught sleeping with my students, I’ll lose my job.
And if I don’t get my s**t together, they’ll come for the only good thing in my life… my daughter.
But I have a plan to fix all that. I have a plan for the girl next door…


So Professor Next Door is a gripping story of a man who needs a wife to make sure his in laws from his died wife don’t take his baby girl. Galen figures that the no-nonsense new neighbor next door would be a great way to help with his problem. Tara just wants to start school and head to med school so when the hot guy next door asks her to marry him and become a step mom she has no idea what she is getting into.
I loved Tara and her big heart. She knows Galen has a past and it isn’t pretty. Galen does have a history of making bad decisions when it comes to women and he is hoping Tara isn’t one of them, but he does own his mistakes and I loved that also. These characters were just wonderful and the story line kept a nice pace. I enjoyed the other characters also.

About Tap Left

Lola Bell could easily bring an army of men to their knees… as long as she never opened her mouth.
She’s soft in too many ways. A people pleaser who goes the extra mile. Some might call her an easy target. In short, she has all of the qualities that I despise. But when it comes to me, she doesn’t hesitate to fling her poison arrows my way. She has every right to her feelings. Over the years, I’ve given her plenty of ammo.
Yeah, I hate Lola. But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her too. When she makes me a proposition I can’t refuse, there’s just one problem.
She tastes so f*cking sweet. So f*cking good.
So f*cking mine



Man, I love A.Zavarelli! This book is so wonderful. Lola is such a wonderful character, she is a mess, a people pleaser, crazy and looking for love. She is looking for that and not having any luck in that department at all. She does have a long time “friend” Daire who is none of those things. He is a very hard man with no wanting need for love. When Lola asks for Daire to help her toughen herself up he has some choice words.
This is a romance story for the time. I will reread this book over and over. This is a hard book to read sometimes with the emotions that run through it. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

Title: His to Keep
Author: Vivian Wood

Star Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About His to Keep:

Nothing this fake should feel so good.
CEO Connor Cavanaugh is a man in charge. He dominates in meeting rooms and at the gym, and his sinfully sexy body is proof. His upcoming wedding is supposed to seal the deal, putting his company in the spotlight and making it rain.
That all goes down in flames when he walks in on his bride-to-be with another man.
No one can know that a woman tried to make a fool of Connor Cavanaugh.
Cancelling the wedding is the only option… until he spots a gorgeous brunette at the wedding planner’s office. Samantha. The perfect fake fiancée.
She has a body that makes him want to walk her over the threshold, but she’s sweet. Harmless. She’ll suit the position perfectly.
The only problem? Samantha has a wicked smile that keeps him up at night. Every day, she’s more tempting than the last.
He swore he wouldn’t f*ck around with his fake fiancée. He signed a contract. He paid. But the more he sees, the more he wants… too bad Sam has plans of her own.


Sam and Conner are such a cute couple. I really enjoyed their relationship, it was the other characters I really couldn’t get past. I liked Sam and how she handled everyone in her world. Conner had some growing up to do, especially when it came to his family. His family is a total nightmare and his ex I don’t even have words to describe her. I would recommend this book if you want to yell at the secondary characters and root for the main. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Snow and the 7 Hunks

Do you ever get tired of being a good girl?
I know I do, with a name like Snow I guess it’s expected.
But there is nothing good about my boss’ new wife.
That witch took over the office.
And she’s determined to turn my fairy tale into a living nightmare.
Hello, Enchanted Woods, an exclusive retreat for worn-out girls like me.

Talk about girl power when it comes to this book! Snow is forced into a 3-month vacation when her best friend gives her a brochure about a cottage in the woods. This cottage is all about you, whatever your heart desires. So Snow wants seven different dates with seven different men. And really who can fault her. Given the option wouldn’t you do something like this? But while Snow is enjoying her time she finds something she didn’t expect Noah. And while Noah and she are getting close, Snow refuses to stop her dates as she feels she is learning more about herself from these different men.
I loved that Snow didn’t give up her fantasies for this man who yes she liked and has an attraction to, but for all, she knew that could all it be. She felt it she had to finish this journey for herself to be a better woman, and I am happy that Banks let that story ride out.

About Billion Dollar Urge

I’ve broken every rule except the three I live by
Never kiss on the mouth.
Never spend the night.
Well a playboy never tells.
If she’s not careful it won’t just be those rules, and her bed I break.
I’ll break her heart too.
All she was ever supposed to be was a hook up. To keep Nicole now I’ll have to risk my family’s billion dollar company and a prison sentence.
The game is out of control.
But I will make her mine.

All I ever wanted was to be the first in my family to graduate college. And to pay my New York rent.
When my one night stand turns out to be the sex-crazed, Billionaire Myles Quill I’m suddenly invited to the world’s most exclusive party.
The catch?
I have to go as his fiance.
Five thousand dollars and absolutely no sex. At least I won’t have to worry about rent for a while.
It’s just one more night. That’s not so tough, right? I just won’t think about how his ice-cold blue eyes make my body shiver, and his flaming tongue makes my blood boil.
It’s going to be a long, hard night.
If we survive the night and the surprise pregnancy test doesn’t destroy us, a dark secret from my past definitely will.


This is a wonderful story. Myles is a man who has never had to grow up. And while Nicole is just supposed to be his next one night stand he can’t seem to get her off his mind. Myles has a lot of issues but Nicole seems to want to help him work through them, but as all good stories, there is always a bad guy. I devoured this story and would highly recommend this book.

About Blaze:

Find ’em hot. Leave ’em wet.
That’s the student motto here at Fire Academy.
Too bad Lacey Nelson thinks I’m the devil incarnate.
She acts tough, but I know innocence when I see it.
I could set her world ablaze with a single finger, be the first inside her hot-house.
If I could get close enough…
She’s the only girl in this year’s class.
Every guy in here wants a piece of the action.
But there’s a reason they call me the Dream Machine.
She’ll slide down my pole and discover why.
What she needs is a distraction—ten throbbing inches of it.
And I’m going to give it to her.
Even if I have to burn this place to the ground.


I loved this story. It is a nice slow burn with a great set of characters and a little mystery to go along with it. Lacey doesn’t take crap from anyone including Payton who just happens to become her partner in the academy. I greatly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

About Taming the Bear

Will the president of 1%’er club, Lucifer’s Lair MC, get tamed or will he still be wild?
Does the president of Lucifer’s Lair claim his First Lady or does he let what happened in the past define him?

I only hired Chantal to get to the bottom of who is trying to kill me inside of my club. That was it. All she was supposed to do was hacked into the computers and find a connection and see who has been reading my emails and leaking information about drops. Having this pink haired pixie in my club and my bed pretending to be my ol‘ lady is definitely blurring some lines. Sleeping with her wasn’t part of the plan and neither was having to save her from a rival gang.
Chantal ended up saving me in more ways than one. Can I do the same for her or will I just wreck another life?

As a private investigator, I thought I had seen it all and heard it all. Boy, was I wrong! When Joe “The Bear” Montague shows up at my office to hire me to hack into his club’s computers, I knew I was getting myself into more than I could handle. With the promise of being paid enough money to pay off my debt to Big Sir, I took the job that Joe was offering. Being a fake ol‘ lady couldn’t be that hard, could it? Little did I realize that over time, he would begin to mean more to me than just a boss and my savior from Big Sir. When we touch, it’s like fireworks are being lit up inside of me. He’s so hot and powerful that I cling to him in so many ways. I thought maybe we could make it out of the “fake ol‘ lady” title to me being a real one. After I cracked the job and found out that one of his own is trying to take him down, I began to fear that he would be done with me. I’ve opened so much of myself to him. I gave him my body and heart and I hope he doesn’t ruin them while he fights to keep his club together and the police out of his business. When everything is said and done, am I going to be more to him than just a bed warmer?

For an MC book, it is a good book. This is my first Eden Rose book and it is a good story with strong characters. Joe is a pretty good guy for being a President of a 1% biker club. But when his life is threatened and he needs help he hires a hacker that just might be too much for him.Chantal is a young hacker that has gotten into trouble. So when she is hired by Joe to look into his troubles, she jumps at the chance. But did she maybe take on more than she bargained for? I really did enjoy this book and can’t wait to see where the other stories go.

About Claiming Slice:

The moment my eyes landed on the leather cladded biker, Slice, I knew I was in trouble.
For most of my adult life, I have tried to gain control of my life and separate myself from my old life. Remake Jen into someone other than a hitman’s daughter. Just when I think I have it all figured out, a dirty talking outlaw barges through the walls I have built so high.
He’s so sexy, smart and has a dirty sense of humor. The best part, he’s amazing in bed. My body responds to him like fireworks every time he touches me, I feel alive and wanted with him. He acts like he wants to consume me, claim me, own me…
But, I’m already claimed.
I admit I like him, I admit that I want him. However, I don’t want to tell him where I come from because he won’t understand. He won’t understand that I hate my old life.
Now that I’m falling for him, he found out that I’m already taken. The issue is, I’m already taken by Slice. He has the power to destroy me and heal me all at the same time. Will he give me the chance to explain?

Jen has become my obsession. Her kiss, her taste, personality has me craving her and wanting to tether myself to her. I know she feels something for me but she won’t admit it. She won’t let me in and its pissing me off.
Lucifer’s Lair is about to go to war with The Plague MC and I need to figure out where we stand. She wants me just as much as I want her. Jen just needs to admit it to herself and then me.
That was until I found out that someone beat me to the punch. She’s already claimed. I’m not giving up. Jen is meant to be mine and its time for everyone to know. And her too!

Pretty good story. Jen is my hero. Such a great character. And although I am not big on the name Slice, I do like him as a hero. Slice is a great guy that doesn’t like to be lied to and does not like it when he finds out that the women he is falling for are living a “double” life. The problem is that Jen has a story to tell that needs to be told and it might be late by the time Slice cools off.
Good story.

About Sharing Britney:

I’ve really messed up this time. I’ve fallen for two men at the same time and now they’ve rocked my world giving me pleasure that I never knew I could feel. Being the meat between this sexy men sandwiched is more than I could have ever dreamed. They make me feel something I have never felt before.
Unfortunately, my love for these two men was only shared between Flip and I. Mack Truck blew my world apart when he told me that he never loved me and he doesn’t give two sh*ts about me or my son. How could he continually hurt me and I still have feelings for him? He did succeed in one thing, he officially pushed me into the arms of Flip for good.
That was until my very worst nightmare took place. My relationship with Lucifer’s Lair MC could cost me my son and that is one person I could never live without.
I guess it’s true, when things go too good, there’s always something bad waiting to happen. Aidan’s father, David, has been making his rounds and has done his homework in finding out the truth. If I don’t stop seeing Mack Truck and Flip, David is going to open an investigation on the whole club regarding the deaths of The Plague’s president, Fang, and many other unsolved deaths. Including a dark secret from Mack Truck’s past.
The secret he’s kept to himself all of these years and the very reason why he pushed me away.
I love them. I honestly love Flip and Mack Truck, but is my love for them worth their freedom?


The reason I gave this book 5 stars is because of the ending. Holy crap what an ending. Needless to say, I did not see that coming at all.

I have liked all of these characters from the beginning and was waiting to see how Britney was going to get her happy ever after and I really did not expect her story to go this way, but I really did love it. What a great way to tell her story and the others.

About Finding Patience:

She thought he was dead.
He thought she moved on.
Now that time has brought them back together, they realize they were both wrong. They were both there the entire time but time has changed them completely. She became an international pop star. He became a fun-loving lieutenant in The Lucifer’s Lair MC. Now face to face, will they be able to make up for lost time? Or has too much time passed to find their way back together? What happens when they figure out they lost five years because of a lie?
When something tragic happens, will it bring them together or will it tear them apart?

So we see everyone from the MC again and get to have Rabies story this time. This is a second chance story with a secret child involved. I have to say it has all the passion and heat that you will now expect from the men and women of the club. Patience may have no idea what she is getting into when she gets back together with Rabies, but neither did the others (except Bethany) so she is in great hands.
Rabies has a lot of time to make up. And this woman is all he wants now. But she also has a life without him. Hopefully, he can find a spot for himself in it.

About Breaking Trip:

There was no doubt in his mind that he had to have her. He had to possess her. But first, he would have to train her.
I always felt like something was missing in my life. Something was off. It wasn’t until I was at work did it become clear. I needed to be dominated. Just not by anyone, either. Anyone else would have been better.
I needed to be dominated by Trip, the newest brother in The Lucifer’s Lair MC.
Problem is, even though I want him, someone else wants him even more and she’s not going to stop until I’m out-of-the-way.

It’s been a long time since I have trained a submissive but Allison becomes so much more than that. She becomes the sun that I need in my dark world. The more I’m around her, the more I want her.
Everything was going great until I had to let my fear of getting close ruin everything.
Now their lives are about to be changed forever. With Trip’s ex still very much active, she’s not going to let him go and she doesn’t care who gets in her way. Well, in the way of her gun.
Can Trip change for Allison? Can he give her all of him like she gave him all of her? Or is it too late?

I need me a Trip! Wow just when you think these guys at the MC can’t get any hotter, you add BDSM into the mix. And it was done properly. Loved it. This had a great story to it, and it wasn’t too dark either. Which was nice.

About Touch Me Doctor

My daughter’s babysitter just asked me to take her virginity – and it’s screwing with my head.
The reasons I can’t f*ck Jessica:
She’s my employee.
She’s a virgin.
She’s twenty-one.
I will only want more and more.
Saving lives for a living is what I do.
But running a medical practice and being a single dad means my life is chaotic.
I needed a babysitter – and I got so much more than I bargained for.
I want her so f***ing bad, but I’ll have to keep my d*ck in my pants.
Maybe there’s a reason we met.
I’m seeking funding to research a cure that will change lives.
And the head of the philanthropic organization will only support married couples.


I liked this book. It is my first Aria Ford book and I think she brought these characters and the storyline to life. Jessica may be young but she doesn’t come across to me as such. She has a great head on her shoulders and comes to love the little girl that she is in charge of. Matt is a doctor that is extremely busy, but always makes time for his daughter, but a single father only has so much time, so when he can’t be where he wants the best person to watch his daughter. Jessica just happens to be the first person his daughter becomes attached to. This is a great family love story and I greatly enjoyed it.

About Forbidden:

She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin…

He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.

I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.

I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.

Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.

I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin…


This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret.


This is my first Elisabeth Naughton story and I LOVED it. I love darker books with a hint of mystery and this one has it. Luc is an enigma that I can’t figure out yet. He is the soon to be head of his family The Salvatici Family. He doesn’t want to be, he hates his family and wants out. But sees no way to make that happen. His brothers are harder and meaner than him but he is the oldest and so will take on as the head of the family.
When Natalie James walks in for a job he knows there is something off and tells her no. But his brother Gio finds that he wants her. So Natalie finds herself in the middle of the Salvatici family.
The thing I love the most about this book is you have NO IDEA what the hell is going on with this family. I mean you think you do, because the modeling and females coming and going, so you go straight to human trafficking, but once you start reading and get more into it, you find there is so much more into this family. And why Luc is so damn scared of his father.
Natalie is the idea of what Luc wants if his life would have been different. He has done everything he could to keep her away from his life but no matter what he did, she wouldn’t leave. I loved that about her. She is strong, stubborn, sexy, and just what Luc needs in his life.
I am so excited to see what is next in this series. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
About Deceived:

Some doors were never meant to be opened…

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.

But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave.

He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.

Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…


This is the second book of The House of Sin series. You have to read the first book Forbidden
Deceived is well titled for this book. We kind of start back where we were in the last book. Natalie is waking up from being drugged and is trying to figure out what the heck Luc has done to her. Needless to say, she is not at all happy when she finds out what has happened while she was out.
Luc has done some things he is not happy to have done to keep Natalie alive and hopefully safe from his family. He is doing everything he can to make her submissive to him and the families. But he soon learns that she never will be that way. These two have to come to terms with their new lives and become a team or they will both die.
This book is full of emotions, betrayal, friendship, broken promises, and love. Man, I loved it. This is one of those books where you are so afraid to read it because you have no idea where you will end up. And when you start reading it you can not put it down. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review. I am so excited to read the next book!
About Undone:

Behind the doors of the House of Sin, no one is ever safe…

I love him. It’s the only truth that matters now.

I’ve cast my old life aside and given myself fully to his wants and desires, to the fire he alone ignites inside me. And together, we’ve found strength and salvation in each other.

But there are evil forces, people who see me as a threat that must be undone. I trust that our love can withstand any test, but I can’t ignore the growing shadows lurking beyond our door.

Because I understand now that those shadows are not waiting to destroy me as I once feared. They’ve come for him. To steal him away from me for good. And to finally and completely engulf him in a sinister world he’s eluded for so long.

In the inescapable darkness of the House of Sin…




So you have to read the first two books Forbidden and Deceived before you read this book. Undone starts off exactly where Deceived ends. Natalie has been taken and finds herself locked up. Luc is with his family and we have no idea what is going to happen to him, we just know that it will be bad.

This book made me mad, cry, and want to through my kindle across the room. I tried to go to sleep and had to go back to it. I had to know what Luc was going to do about his horrible family and if he and Natalie were going to make it through. By the time I was done with it, I had a tissue in my hand and it was 2 a.m.

I am so happy to have read this series. Yes, these series are hard to read and the people in them are horrible people. But in the main point of these books to me where that love can conquer all and that no matter what together you can defeat everything.




Title: Throttle

Star Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Full Throttle:
I’m a boss with my hands.
Right about now is when I mention how big my… wrench is.
No need.
It speaks for itself.
My story is simple: Michelle comes to my body shop and can’t pay for the repairs.
I give them for free. I guess that’s a turn on.
We crash against my desk both wanting it like animals.
Then poof, she’s gone.
6 months later, I punch a crooked cop, and Michelle is assigned as my court appointed lawyer.
One problem.
The crooked cop in question will do anything to have her.
Screw that. She’s mine


I loved Throttle. Every woman should have an Andrew. I liked him at the beginning of the book but loved him at the end! Michelle is a quite mouse compared to Andrew and wants nothing to do with a relationship. But Andrew doesn’t give up on her. These two could really not be more different but I loved it! Great book and I would highly recommend it to anyone that loves a great romance! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Heartless
I’m warned that Carter Hayes is heartless.
He’s part of the Screw Crew.
He’ll just use you and leave you.
He’s ruthless and always gets what he wants.
Just look for the trail of broken hearts and dreamy sighs and you’ll find him.
“Hot as sin, Carter.”
I don’t have time to fall head over heels for any guy. Besides, he’d never notice someone like me. I have a three step plan. Get through college. Get a job. Get my sister out of the hell hole I left her in. That’s all I have time for.
That’s until I hear of the betting pool the guys started. Whoever screws me first gets the money. The moment Carter looks at me, I know it’s only because of the bet.
I tell myself our first kiss is only for show.
I hate my heart for falling for his irresistible charm.
For one foolish moment, I actually want him to be my first earth-shattering love. All ittakes for me to give in is a little attention, a cocky smile, and a fake promise of a happily ever after.
When I’m surrounded by crumpled sheets and the smell of sex, I realize I let him have me for four hundred dollars.
To save what little pride I have left, I pretend it didn’t mean anything, that he’s just one last screw before we all leave college.
I’ve spent the last four years lying to myself. When I’m ready to take the final step of my plan, and save my sister, guess who walks through my front door?



I freaking loved this book! Carter is such an a$$hole that you just want to smack the crap out of him. Della has enough on her plate when it comes to life and Carter being the jerk he is, just makes her work even harder to stay away from him. But it seems whenever she needs help he is there to make life easier for her. So maybe Carter isn’t as heartless as he seems.
This is such an emotional rollercoaster that I could not put it down. I loved it to the very end. And can’t wait to read more of this author.

About Reckless:

I was in love with the boy. I’m obsessed with the man.
Logan is my older brother’s best friend.
My teenage years were spent dreaming about our future together.
He taught me how to kiss. He stayed up late with me while I studied. He escorted me to the prom.
But he is one of the Screw Crew and they only have one rule. I’m off-limits.
I went to college and he started working. The secret messages stopped and I lost my first love before it even had a chance.
I’ve spent the past four years trying to forget the only man I’ll ever love. Just as I start to make a life for myself, guess who comes barging back into my life?

Review Coming Soon!

About Careless

Irony – when life f@cks you over.
She’s the one girl I can’t forget.
She’s as innocent as a saint, with the mouth of a sinner.
After taking her virginity, it’s taken me four years to get rid of the guilt.
I used her while she was at her lowest and she’s never forgiven me.
Watching my best friend die a little every day, and not being able to do anything about it, kills me.
I should’ve seen it coming. The second I hit rock bottom, she walks back into my life.
The f@cking irony?
She might be the only one who can save Marcus.
The life of the person who means the most to me lies in the palm of the girl I screwed.

Hate is a strong word, but it’s one I’ve really considered when it comes to Jaxson West. But I’ve settled for intensely disliking him. Asking me to forgive Jaxson is like asking me to willingly sit through a root canal.
He’s heartbreaking gorgeous, emphasis on heartbreakingly.
He’s an amazing friend, just not to me.
He’s supportive, understanding, caring and loving, just not to me.
No, for me he reserves his dark scowls and low growls.
I’ll do everything I can to save Marcus, but I’m not doing it for Jaxson.

Review Coming Soon!

About Ruthless:

I’m good at deceiving people. Too good.
I let people think I’m a bastard.
Then Willow walks into my life, and no matter how hard I try to scare her off, she keeps coming back.
But, everyone has their limit, and I’m afraid Willow has reached hers.
Why is it when you think you don’t want someone they become the most important person in your life… but am I too late to show her how much I love her?

I tried so hard to fight for us. But some things can’t be saved.
They say if you really love someone you have to set them free. If the person comes back, they’re meant to be yours.
The only problem with that theory is even though he came back, he always left again.
How much heartache can one heart take?
How much rejection can one person take?
The man I love more than life itself has broken me.
That’s why I have to leave

Star Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Cocky Fiance
He wasn’t meant to be on my radar, he was definitely the off-limits guy.
My brother’s best friend, my friend’s ex, but most of all he was my boss.
Hawk Carnage resembled one thing, and one thing only. Sex.
He used it, he knew it, he lived it. Hawk owned the largest lingerie company in the world, and I was his leading lady.
In business.
But now business and friendship were about to be crossed. The lines blurred, and I was ready to dip my toes in the forbidden water. Because no matter how much I said I could refrain from Hawk Carnage, now was not the time.
He was to be my fake fiancé.
And I was about to sink into that forbidden water, with Hawk’s hands clutching my sides.
Lord help me because I was about to enjoy every moment of it.
Even if it was just for fun.
Even if it would ruin everything.
I was going to dive in head first.


So this is my first T.L. Smith book and I have heard great things about her and her books and I am so happy to have read this book. This is a cute story about Hawk and Britta who have been friends since childhood. And although Britta has always seen Hawk as something more she has never acted on it or really shown anything more than friendship towards him. So when Britta needs a fake fiance for her ex-boyfriend’s wedding and Hawk just happens to offer his services things start getting cute and fun them.
I loved the Valentino family and how they treat Hawk, even though they have known him since they were all kids. And Hawk takes everything in stride even the Unicorn (haha), the story is very well told and I couldn’t put it down. I was happy to read this story and hope there is more to come with the other boys.

About Fix Me Not
Paige Sullivan’s life is a train wreck. In a matter of months she lost her business, her swanky apartment, and her big city life. Now she’s stuck in Nowhere, New Hampshire, sleeping on her mom’s couch. If that wasn’t bad enough, she’s forced to do odd jobs for money. She has a plan though, and once she’s saved enough, she’s out of there. That is, as long as she doesn’t murder her sexy new employer first.

Asher Thompson is the ruggedly handsome hermit of the Thompson clan. Tall, ridiculously sexy despite his beard, and annoyingly aloof, his main concern is his privacy. He fills his days with his work as a carpenter and the peaceful solitude of his lake house. A peaceful solitude that vanished the moment Paige Sullivan stormed into his life, hell-bent on driving him crazy.

The problem is, opposites attract and each time they cross paths she works her way further under his skin.


This is book 2 in the Fix Series. I am just becoming a fan of Carey Heywood’s and am very happy about that. This is a great series and a must read. These stories are wonderfully sweet and the families in this story are awesome. This is a defendant read! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Mr. Trouble:

*This is a standalone novel with a HEA!
Yeah, I’m trouble…so what? Women seem to like it. That and my big…bank account. Who am I kidding? They like what I can do with my tongue too. 

I had a good thing going. Until my father threatened to cut me off if I didn’t settle down. So I picked the one woman he couldn’t object to.
Falling for her was never part of the plan.

Review Coming Soon!

About Mr. Big:

You’ve heard the rumors…
Yes, they’re all true. The women…the bank account…the really big…
Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself. I’m just saying, there’s a reason some call me Mr. Big. But none of it will matter to her. I’ve known her since we were kids. And she’s just as off limits now as she was then.
She’s my best friend’s little sister and when he asked me to give her the grand tour, he did not mean of my bedroom.
So Mr. Big has to stay under wraps… One problem, she’s the only woman I’ve ever truly loved. But with the secret I’m keeping, she’ll never love me back.

Review Coming Soon!

About Mr. Dirty

I have a dirty mouth. That’s the truth. Women love it. And I have no plans on changing. Why would I?
I like my life. The women, the partying, the fun.
Until I meet my new neighbor.
She’s messing with my good thing. She’s annoying, and persistent, and a pain in the…well you get the idea. She’s also gorgeous, and smart…and completely immune to me.
And now she needs my help with a little Ex payback and I’m more than happy to lend my expertise. Now all I have to do is keep from falling for her in the process. How hard can that be?


This is my first Nana Malone book and I have to say I really enjoyed it. This story is about two people that become friends, then lovers, only to have it all fall apart. But sometimes it doesn’t stay that way.
Nathan has a lot of trust issues and so he has become a man whore and just treats women like they are nothing. He finds nothing wrong with this as long as everyone is having a good time.
Sophie meets Nathan and finds his womanizing ways, not to her liking. But the chemistry she has for him is something she has never felt before.

About Savage:

I need her to play wife. She needs me to play daddy.
Olivia is torture in a Gucci dress. Spoiled and sassy.
Everything I hate, and everything I love.
She’s also my late best friend’s sister and guardian to his daughter.
She’s going to help me clean up my image.
I’m going to help her keep parental rights.
But I’m no daddy. I’m the devil in a black suit. Demanding everything from everyone.
Claiming her innocence has been my deepest desire for years.
Even if it means my destruction.
Too late to stop. Too gone to care.
I’ll pay the price. Anything. Anyone. For her.

I LOVED this story. These two have such a history between them but it isn’t a history that either wants to really relive.

Olivia is now the guardian of her little niece and is not really prepared for any of it. But she is determined to do everything herself and to make a great life for herself and her niece. But when she sees Beck again all the past emotions come forward again. Olivia has always been in love with Beck. The bad boy next door neighbors her brothers best friend. But he was always the one for her.

Beck was always on the sidelines of Olivia’s life. Looking out for her, loving her, but never feeling like he could be in her love life. But now with Micheal gone and her having his child and raising her, he feels like he has to be there to help. But he also needs her deep down. So when they both need help in different ways they lean on each other. But will it be enough?

I devoured this book. I was up half the night because I couldn’t put it down. Olivia is true strength and grace. And Beck is a true alpha. Loved both characters. An all-around wonderful book!!

Title: Watch and See

Star Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Watch and See:

Life hasn’t been kind to Harper Evans.
The small-town gossip about her dead dad and drug-addicted mother has taken its toll. But when her mother is admitted to a long-term rehab facility a few hours away, Harper sees her chance for a fresh start.
A shoebox apartment above a Chinese restaurant isn’t exactly the escape she dreamed of, but she makes it work. With limited funds and social life, she views her new city through a dusty old pair of binoculars.
There’s no harm in looking.
Just a peek and I’ll stop.
Harper finds her new pastime quickly turning into a full-fledged obsession. She begins falling for a man she doesn’t know—has never met—as she watches him have sex through the window of his apartment. Daydreaming about what it would be like if she were one of his conquests.
We all reach a point when watching isn’t enough—when we can no longer just be a spectator in our own life. That’s when it’s supposed to get good, right? When we take control and go after what we want. But what happens when it all blows up in our face and we’re left with less than nothing?
What then?


This is my first book by Jeffy Kate and I was so surprised by it that I want to dive right into another one! I thought with the name Watch and See I would be reading a story about voyeurism and some dirty sex, but instead what I got was an emotional story.

Harper is a young woman trying to live on her own and deal with her drug addict mother that is now in a 6-month program. Harper has such a big heart that even though her mother treats her like crap she still goes every Saturday and visits. But Harper does have one little secret. She watches a man across the way have sex in his living room. He has no idea that Harper is looking on, and he doesn’t care that anyone is looking on.

Luke has his own issues, this is why he has sex with women in his living room. He never takes them to his bedroom and never closes the blinds. He doesn’t care if people can see, not that he pays any attention. But when Harper walks in for a family counseling session with her mother he finds he wants to get to know her. He has no idea that she already knows him.

These two have a friendly relationship until he finds out. I loved how each character takes a step back then comes together again.
I loved all of these characters and Mr. Chan is wonderful! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

Book 1: Shameless
Book 2: Reckless

About Shameless:

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.
Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.
I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me.
What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.
I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

Review Coming Soon!

About Reckless:

For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.
I’m a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don’t want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

Between us, she’s the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.
What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.
My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t want, no matter how much I crave her.


Hello cowboy! I really enjoyed my first Lex Martin book. Tori and Ethan are such great characters and their story is wonderfully told.

I had a little trouble at first with Tori, I will be honest. At first, she seemed to act a little younger than her age. A little immature and not knowing what she wanted and she is very honest with her feelings. But with her family and Ethan coming into her life more she matures more and becomes a wonderful woman.

Ethan dealing with a lot with his family and ranch is not looking for anything more than a nanny. But when Tori walks in he thinks he might be able to handle a little more.

This is a great story. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
