Cuffed by K. Bromberg

K. Bromberg surprised me with this one. I don't think I was expecting so many emotions..I mean I saw the deliciousness of the cover and thought, yes please. What I got was an all encompassing story that delved beyond the easiness of a second chance romance. Tough issues, friendships that were thrown away but found unexpectedly and the unwavering staying power of first love. I was surprised at my reaction to all of it.

Grant and Emmy were two souls that connected from the very beginning, when the ugliness of the real world interrupted the safety of childhood, lives were changed. Telling the truth is always the right thing to do, but even in right things, wrongs can occur. My favorite connection was Grant's mom and Emmy. They had this unspoken bond that just never went away. It clicked as if the years did not separate them.

Fighting for what you know is right. Loving who you know you should. Protecting your family against the evils this world can show. All of this was showcased in this first book in Ms. Bromberg's newest series. I am excited to read more.

Drive by Kate Stewart

Kate Stewart is an absolute MUST READ author for's hard to put into words what her books do to me. But because I am a blogger/reviewer I have to figure this shit out and try...

Here we go:

1) She grabs me from the prologue to make me not only want more but NEED more. A burning desire to figure out what will happen and follow the journey to get there with rapt love and pure attention to detail. Hoping upon all else that I don't miss one word of the epicness that will be coming my way.

2) Having twists along the way that make you second guess even what you thought you may have wanted. Falling in love with more than one person, wanting the best for everyone and secretly holding hope that it follows the way you as a reader want it go. But also trusting that Ms. Stewart knows what she is doing and will bring all the characters to their destiny.

3) Being so damn addicted that you risk tears IN PUBLIC to continue reading as you wait in line to renew your vehicle registration. She has also had me cry while sneak reading in line at the bank. The BANK people. I mean I do tear up there when I see my balance every once in awhile, but that's a different story..

4) Heart palpation's, the fluttering of first love butterflies, the knot that builds in your stomach and can literally choke you as you hope and feel for fictional characters, the absolute connection of reality to fiction in where you find yourself lost in someone's else's world and can't even apologize for ignoring everyone and everything else.

5) And finally the music. My two absolute addictions are reading words and listening to words. Music and reading. She blends them perfectly, reminding us that everyone's life is a soundtrack and sometimes hearing those songs brings you back so quickly you are truly transported. Sounds of life, harmonies of the soul. Perfectly done.

This book was EPIC. Although it started a tad slow, the build ends up being part of connecting unconditionally with everyone involved and taking stock in how the entire thing will play out. I LOVED this book.

Maverick by Karina Halle

Karina Halle uses these characters to highlight the fact that you can be fearless and intimated all at once. You can scale down an ice mountain to rescue others but can't risk falling for someone and allowing yourself to be allow someone into your heart is a danger that may not be worth the fallout.

I fell hard for both Maverick and Riley. They were both strong, resilient people that loved their friends with all they have. Following danger to ensure the lives of others isn't something that selfish people often do. They mirrored each other in giving more than just the surface of who they are. Having lost important people in your life can definitely harden even the most loyal hearts.

Being privy to these two not only allowing the other into their lives, but falling hard enough to lose it all. I felt the heartache, friendship and totally appreciated the use of climbing rope and body parts. HOLY HOT.  Smoking hot chemistry between these two burned brightly off my kindle pages. The kind of smoldering build of sexual tension that has you so wrapped up, you are literally in the office cheering them on. Can't wait for Fox's story.
