 ~~My Review for Whisky & You~~

Be warned there is nothing sweet about this book. This book will tear you apart and spit you out. I came into this story thinking one thing. And then from the very first sentence, I could NOT stop reading. I read this book in one sitting.

JJ is nothing of what you think when you start the first chapter. I was so up in the air after the first couple chapters. I wanted to not like him and was for sure going to hate him. But once the story started to develop I LOVED him. What a tragic alpha man. He is so misunderstood and he deserved everything that comes to him.

Navy, holy crap. That girl is a warrior in every sense. No matter what Jordan has done to her, she comes up fighting. Even if it is being quiet and looking small, she is still fighting. I have no idea how she does it. But JJ is there to save her.

These two have a romance that is wonderful to read. And the other characters are just as wonderful. The ending is great and I can’t wait to read Kemps story! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

 The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after.

A new supersexy insta-love novella from USA TODAY bestselling author Jenika Snow that has a gruff lumberjack yelling T-I-M-B-E-R for the woman he’s been waiting for.

The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood.

I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself. I prefer the quiet of the woods to the ramblings of clingy women who think they can tame a wild mountain man.

Until Mia. Now she’s all I think about.

I should have stayed away. She’s too sweet for a brute like me, but I can’t stop wanting her, picturing her sated in my sheets.

Mia knows just what kind of wood I’m working with. She’s the soft to my hard, the sugar to my bitter bark.

And I love seeing her walk on the wild side.

This book is approximately 15,000 words

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: Quick and dirty, just the way we like it.


~My Review for Hard Wood~

I loved this sweet story about the lumberjack and the new girl in town.

Noah is the third owner of a lumber business that he shares with his brothers. He loves the outdoors and the country. He tried the city life years before and it didn’t go well. So he decides unless he finds the perfect woman he will just stay by himself.

Mia is the new girl in town. She is ready for the quiet life. So she moves to town and meets Noah. The sparks go off right away. These two have a chemistry that flies off the pages. I really did enjoy this story and can’t wait to read the others!
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

“Um. I feel we should probably talk about…” My throat grew tighter. “You know.” I averted my gaze as embarrassment flooded me. I took another drink of the firewater. When he didn’t respond I chanced a look at him. He wore a smile but was making himself busy with the first aid kit. Several seconds passed before he finally stopped what he was doing and looked at me.

“Yeah,” he said, his voice sounding deeper, thicker. “I was wondering if that would get brought up.” He was still smirking. Damn him.

I finished off my drink. I watched as he did the same. Maybe he was just as nervous as I was? He took the now empty glass from me and smiled. It was genuine, and not the cocky one he’d been sporting earlier.

For long moments neither of us said anything, but the heat, the electricity and the chemistry were there, like fire licking over our bodies. Surely I wasn’t the only one experiencing it?

“I wanted to say I’m sorry for being on your property and…” I cleared my throat. “And sorry for watching you in a very private moment.” God, I was actually going here with him, and it was humiliating.

“I knew you were there, watching me.” I snapped my head up and stared into his eyes.

“What? You did?” I didn’t know why I felt so shocked right now. I had wondered if he’d done it on purpose. I mean who jerks off in the middle of the woods right after they finish chopping logs?

Whisper in the Dark by Leteisha Newton📖Review📖




 I was captured…That’s just the beginning of my tale. I’ve survived Purgatory, abuse, and near death. In that abandoned farmhouse I nearly lost everything, but Jacob saved me. We were trapped in this hell together, giving each other the strength to hold on. I fell into darkness with my captor’s son.Until I left him behind.She was perfect, my Alana. Brilliant and full of pain. She understood my darkness and fueled the fire. When she left, I waited patiently to find her, and in her honor, I killed men who took away from innocents. Then I found her…She’s deadly now, a killer too, and perfectly mine. It was beautiful to behold, but she belongs in a cage. My cage. She’ll love me again, or I’ll expose her dirty secrets for the world to see while going down in flames with her. In darkness, it’s most definitely till death do us part.

Warning: This book is full of triggers. It’s wicked dark, with created evil falling in love. People die. They are hurt horribly. The bad guys get away, and there is no apology for it. Hardcore trigger within these pages.



Leaving me to my misery, Master and the doctor left the room to speak in harsh whispers in the hallway. Curling myself into a ball, I kept crying harder and harder until I was gasping for breath. Master threw a glare my way before leading the doctor far away from my room.
The pain, the loss, shot through me like I was taking a bullet to the heart. How could I have done this? How could I put my precious little one through something this awful? I was as bad as Master. I was a monster like him. Crying harder at my thoughts, my eyes caught on the doorway in time to see someone peeking in. My body relaxed in one great whoosh. Jacob was here. He slipped into the room and crept into the bed with me. Ignoring the blood and filth on the towels, for the first time, Jacob took me into his arms. I curled into his chest, inhaling his clean, crisp scent through the tears.
“I’m sorry, Alana. I couldn’t get here sooner, and I can’t stay here long. He’ll come back soon.”
It didn’t matter. He was here now, and I clung to him, curling my fingers into his shirt and holding on desperately. In his arms, the pain dulled, and I could handle it. I could cry into his chest and be held. I could be fragile, and he’d catch the broken pieces. His lips trailed up the side of my neck, soft kisses that pushed away the agony and warmed me.
“You can do it. You’re strong enough. Hold on a little longer,” he whispered into my skin. I believed it because he did too.
So I lifted my face so his lips could touch mine.
Soft and warm, his mouth was different. He slipped over the scars of my abuse and filled in the cervices left behind. Maybe it was the medicine making me fanciful, but I thought I could ask for this. That maybe I would ask him to take me. That I’d like to have him. But then, he was pulling away.
“I have to go. I’ll be with you later. Look for me.”
And as fast as he’d come, he was gone, but the pain was behind a wall, one he’d built high. He gave me strength, and I would use it to survive. I’d done the right thing, as horrible as it was, and I knew he didn’t judge me for it. We’d done this together, and it made the load easier to bear. Master stomped his way back into the room, face scarlet and chest heaving like a locomotive. I wanted to cringe at his bald fists, but I couldn’t move. I was too tired, or too resigned maybe, to care.

~~ My Review for Whisper in the Dark~~

This is one of the most screwed up books I have read in a long time. But oh man did I love it. I guess it takes a special person to love these kinds of books.

Alana Masters is kidnapped at 18 years old. She is then held for almost 2 years. She is rapped, beaten, whipped, and tormented in ways you can’t imagine. Her only solace is the boy that is her age, Jacob. He is Masters son.

Master doesn’t treat Jacob any better than the toys (the women he kidnapped). But now that Alana is there, Jacob has someone to fight for.
When Jacob and Alana find a way out, Alana runs and never goes back for Jacob, but she doesn’t give away his involvement.

Years later Alana has turned into Nila Winters and is a therapist for the worse offenders of sexual misconduct towards young children. But what she does in her spare time is what gets her going. And when Jacob finally finds her, well that just makes this couple even hotter.

I loved this book and will make it my mission to read more from her. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

Release Date: March 8, 2018
 I’m a reporter, and I’ve got the best assignment in the world… get dirt on the hottest country star on the charts, Keith Perkins.
The sexy beast who rocks those tight jeans like nobody’s business. I’m supposed to learn all his Dirty Laundry… his deepest and darkest secrets.
Without sleeping with him.
Easy enough, right?
I mean, just looking at him makes me wonder what those big, rough hands could do to me. With a voice that’s one part velvet and one part growl, it’s hard for me to sass him when he melts me into a puddle with a single look.
And when he sings?
All bets are off. He owns the stage. And maybe some naughty parts of my body too.
But he’s notoriously single, and notoriously private.
Given his status as a walking sex god, neither make sense.
Something is amiss, and I’m going to figure out exactly what it is. But if I’m not careful, I might just become his dirty little secret.

🗞🗞 My Review for Dirty Laundry 🗞🗞

Elise is a reporter that needs a break and country singing Keith just might be the key to it. Keith has decided to give Elise an exclusive 3 part series. But while they write this they become closer and closer. But will Keith ever be able to trust her with everything he has?

This story is wonderful. What I loved about it, is that instead of the woman having the trust issue it is the man. So it is a little different. Another great story by Lauren. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

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!

Black Velvet by Linnea May 📖Review📖

Black Velvet

The Velvet Rooms

by Linnea May

Publication Date: March 4, 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

Linnea May brings you the riveting tale of a dark billionaire, an ethereal beauty – and their twisted game of seduction.

She is paid to lie and seduce – but I don’t want her insincere moans and fake smiles.

My investment in the elusive Velvet Rooms holds a promise for more.

And I always get what I want. Always.

No man ever made her scream and beg for release. A release that remained unattainable for her.

She claims I’m asking for the impossible. I will prove her wrong.

Because I know it’s not her body that needs to be conquered – it’s her mind.

But our relationship rests on unsound footing, a contract and nothing more.

And when my actions turn reckless, the vulnerable agreement may be our undoing…

🖤🖤 My Review for Black Velvet 🖤🖤

There isn’t anything that Linnea May can’t write. This is a spin-off of her Violent Series. Welcome to Velvet Rooms where all your dreams come true.

Elene works for Violent Delights and is tired of it. She just can’t get into it anymore. So she goes to her boss and tells her she is done, she wants out. But that is when Elene finds out that there will be a new business opening up and Elene will have the option to be an Angel or a Devil. You can figure that one out. 🙂

Damon is a VIP to Violent Delights but has yet to find the one woman that he wants to keep for a while. But when he goes to the meeting with madam at Violet he walks into Elene. It isn’t for 6 months at the opening of Velvet Rooms that he finally sees her again.

This is a wonderful story of almost cat and mouse. Damon knows he will lose interest in Elene as soon as he has sex with her. Elene is used to giving the man anything and everything they want. Too bad Damon wants the real her, and she doesn’t know what that is. I loved this romance! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
