The Player by K. Bromberg

Let us start with the obvious..that fucking cover YO! I didn't realize I was a lip girl until I found myself tracing this cover model's lips with my own. LOL Seriously. Enough with the TMI of my sad existence and on to the review.

Having been a fan of Ms. Bromberg since her first book I am always excited to read something new from her. Easton was an easy to love, quick to connect with superstar that I knew from the get go I wanted. I mean I wanted him to get what he wanted...that being Scout <--love that name too! The attraction between these two was immediate, burned hot and was emanating from the pages of my kindle. Their banter was quick witted, full of sexual innuendo and tension, just like I enjoy it. Their dedication to their family and the desire to be seen in a certain way connected them on every level. So I devoured this one in a sitting. I also kicked my own ass for waiting to read this until The Catch hit my kindle. Sometimes I am so lame.

The ending was abrupt but not I wanna crawl into a hole, just PLEASE tell me what's next, for the love of GOD. Luckily I was able to. So now I am deep into book two and all the feels are still there. The want, need and friendship that shone bright in book one is calling my name right now in book two. All in all, another hot romance with that little bit of "more" that I have come to expect from this author.

When Life Happened by Jewel E. Ann

This book has the perfect encompassed every emotion we can run into, guilt, envy, remorse, happiness, sadness, fighting back, giving in, friendship, forgiveness, acceptance, laughter...every single thing you could experience was brought to life in this story. I loved every single second of it. The messy parts, redeeming parts, I found myself laughing, and tearing up on more than one occasion. Parker was easy to love, to connect with and you found yourself wanting her to be able to live a full life, full of all the love that she deserves. Being herself, being enough, being someone's person.

I don't want to say much about this one, as not to give anything away, but I HIGHLY recommend it. Forget about your "deal breakers", grab a copy, and let life play out in front of you in high def and enjoy every emotion that this author wrenches from your soul. My favorite read of the year so far. It's kind of story that stays with you long after you close your kindle with a smile on your face.

And it was in third person...I usually don't connect with that..but I did so quickly it was crazy and an absolute testament to how well this author tells this story to I'm done. Read this book.

The Sergeant's Protection by K. Langston

Once I wiped the drool off of my kindle due to incessant licking of cover model's washboard abs and got myself cleaned up enough to get to reading...the next thing I knew I was at The End. Wow..I love sitting down and losing track of time, kids, responsibility and dinner. Kindle it's what's for dinner. <--Sam Elliott's voice over..anyways back to the story.

Justin was easy for me to love. The age difference was a little icky at first, having a daughter closing in on this age. But the way Selena handles herself made me forget about the comparison. These two were the definition of love at first sight and once on that path nothing or no one could change the course. I enjoy K. Langston's writing and building of these brother's lives and loves. You are guaranteed hot as hell men, with protective instincts, a little mystery and intrigue thrown in, with a cast of background characters that will keep you smiling.

Looking forward to Asher's story..that little taste at the end has me all jacked up and ready.

The Story Of Us by Tara Sivec

The Story Of Us is an emotional tale that grabbed me right out of the kindle. I was taken by Eli from page one and wanted to make all the bad things go away and nestle him in my bosom to take the nightmares away. Having lost all semblance of what a normal life looked like, Eli had been given the chance to try again. Sometimes that can be the hardest thing to actually do.  A reminder that love, real soul matching, in your bones kind of love can and will conquer all.

Shelby was likable, she loved hard, but along the way was lost even to herself. The twists and turns in this tale were not hard for me to catch onto, but that did not stop me from reading on, enjoying and fighting the good fight to see these two have their second chance with their first love. 

Tara Sivec has perfected the rom-com in my opinion but this story is more along the lines of Fisher's Light and she does not disappoint. I didn't even miss laughing so hard Diet Coke surged out my nostrils, because the heart and soul of this story continued to shine through. It's a grim reminder of how little we give back to those that gave all, and I truly felt it.

Ruckus by L.J. Shen

L.J. Shen has quickly become one of my favorite authors, she writes the bad boy asshole in a way that makes you want to rub his back, whisper sweet nothings in his ear and take all the pain away. Simply put you can't help but fall head over converses (not even gonna pretend I can do in love with them, and Dean was no different. From previous stories I had already started my tumble in love oblivion before I even opened my kindle to read Ruckus, but through out every page that love grew until it was felt in my chest. That feeling you get when you're reading a hard felt love story, the pain settles in your ribs, the anticipation rises through your throat and your heart beats for fictional characters brought to life right before your glossed over tired eyes.

Rosie and Dean are love. They fought, they made mistakes, they loved even when the time wasn't right for them. The battle they waged was tumultuous, heart-breaking and yet left a smile on my face that was felt for days. I enjoyed every single moment of this story and can't wait for what Ms. Shen brings us next.

The Wright Boss by KA Linde

Back to the land of the Wright Brothers...this trip brings us Landon, his dipshit of money grubbing wife and Heidi, the woman that truly loves him for who he is not what he has or doesn't.

I have enjoyed both brothers thus far, but they have both possessed a quality that doesn't completely connect with me. For this round, Landon's "door-mattness" was a bit of a turn off for me. At one point in the story he made a choice that I did not understand at all! Even when the reasons behind him staying were revealed they didn't rectify my complete disappointment in him.

What I did enjoy was Heidi, I felt her to be real, relate-able and honest. She never wavered in what she believed and was strong enough to endure the wishy washness of Landon's indecisiveness. It didn't make her weaker for me, it drew me and made me root for her happily ever after. As always I am excited to dive back into this family on the next go-around!

Chance Encounters by Jessica Prince

I love this series so much...each new pair of characters invades my reader soul just a little bit more than the last. But Melany and Chance, they now own it. I love a nerdy, awkward girl coming into her own. And when she is able to do that because of a hot, hasn't found his "one" guy, it makes it that much sweeter. The banter, painfully embarrassing situations, friendship and overall heart of this story was exactly what I needed. 

Jessica Prince has become an absolute go to author for me. She writes, I read. It's that simple. She has a knack of putting just enough friction, love, angsty, ooey-gooey whole-hearted goodness into every page. Simply put I love her writing. I can't recommend her stories enough. I'm not an expert on genres but if you love a well written love story, that can leave you swoony, heart in the throat love struck, read her words.

I Don't by Ella Fox

We start out this story with Ava working, not fully enjoying where she is or what she is doing (do any of us??) when an interruption blasts her back to reality. Enter Mateo. The strength in this story. The reason I read it in one sitting. Mateo is love.

He wants his girl back. Through the story you learn that he tried to give Ava time, space and the freedom that killed him to afford her. The challenges that they faced together and apart were the driving forces behind where the story was taking us. A few too descriptive moments and weakness that I felt from Ava slowed me down a bit, but when Mateo was fully immersed into the story line I was HOOKED. He loved and fought hard enough to squash any moments of fragility that may have turned me away.

I totally enjoyed the story, and can't wait for more from this series. Ms. Fox has a knack for writing stories I connect with easily and flow in a way that makes you forget that you are reading fiction. You are transported effortlessly into another world, with a book boyfriend that will make you want to slap your significant other to step up..

Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


Bianca and Dex began in the dark..figuratively and physically. While the light did come on, the falsities that began to protect became the catalyst that could tear everything apart. Though they started out in a threesome of sorts (no worries for all you "safe" readers, it's not "that" kind of threesome) it quickly became a game of why, can, will and when will it all play out. But it didn't end with that's a Keeland/Ward book y'all the twists and hits keep coming..

I don't believe in guarantees. Life is filled with so many disappointments and fails that I live in a world of glass half full. Until the writing combo of two of my favorite authors, Ms. Keeland and Ms. Ward. I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt I am going to laugh, connect, tear up and have a deep seeded want for everyone to find their happily ever after. I know I will get strong writing that captivates me and transports me to another world. I will fall deeply in love with not only the characters but for the lives that lead, the friendships they forge and the feelings that pull from reading heart. Mister Moneybags is no exception. I guarantee you will feel everything. You will rally and cheer for these two to find their future together in some factor. Loved it. 

Hate 2 Lovers by J.D. Hollyfield & K. Webster

If you haven't read Text 2 Lovers..stop reading this review and click here---->'s a strong word. even stronger, because of these two feelings being so strong they can sometimes live a parallel life and confuse even the most level headed of people. Add sex, feelings, pregnancy and someone that doesn't trust feelings at all and you have a cluster fuck of epic proportions.  Sprinkle in two authors that live to make you laugh, cry, feel and add an undertone of dark loveliness and you have a 5 star read that is unputdownable.

These two should quit whatever else they are doing and write stories together EVERY. DAY. Their humor, heart, twisted angst and straight gangsta goofiness makes for such an amazing story. After reading book one I knew I NEEDED to read this one asap. It did not let me down. The hate, love, friendship and family that was created was incredible to watch unfold. I can't wait for more. I am already addicted to the next story. HURRY. UP. girls I will pay in wine..

Until next time here to buy Hate 2 Lovers ---->

Say I'm Yours by Corinne Michaels

Sometimes it's hard for me to write reviews (who am I kidding, it's always hard), I struggled with writing this one because I love the story, adore the brothers but being the third and having his commitment issues he took a little longer to crawl into my reader heart. Now this doesn't mean he didn't eventually get there, his journey was just lined with "wtf's" and random kindle tosses because another heart was being played with while he figured his shit out.

Now Grace I fell for quickly. She is kind, loyal, beautiful and has a good heart. She knows what she wants and is so desperate to have her feelings returned. But after 20 years of back and forth her damaged feelings just couldn't take another hit. So she was done. Enter the other heart.

These two were meant to be in true Hennington fashion there is heart ache, friendship, angst, devotion, and a family that sticks together no matter what. I am always sated after finishing a book in this series but still jonzing for the next one like the addict I am.

Take Me Back by Meghan March

Take Me Back starts with a story that I love to read...the married couple that has drifted and has a come to Jesus moment within their marriage and they have to really assess where they are and where they want to go. I think it is because I have been with the same guy for 22 years and I always wonder what would happen, worst case scenarios and all. But the love, desire, friendship, and strength in a relationship is always tested within the borders of a marriage and delving into that is always a story I want to read. This one doesn't disappoint on that front...but there's more.

Dane and Kat have been living with each other for two years as a married couple and have yet to be completely honest with each other, so a trip to Belize is what Dane thinks will cure this ailment. A beautiful backdrop for a story of love, honesty, and what makes us who we are. It's like having your own tour guide through the crystal blue waters of paradise with a beautiful woman, tattooed hot bad ass and twists and turns that will keep you glued to your kindle.


Twist by Kylie Scott

Back to the bar...this one starts with a mix up that beats all mix-ups. Joe has been answering as his brother and never thought the woman he was growing so close to would just show up...but she did and from that moment on a friendship that started online blooms into more.

Alex is likable, strong even though she has many fears, and is loyal as they come. She is angry at first but after Joe shows that what he portrayed on line was who is he is in person she is sunk. She stays and makes the best of what slowly becomes an awkward situation. Alex held strong as a character that I remained connected to through out the story.

Joe on the other hand started strong and took a bit of a nose dive later in the story. I was rooting for the big guy that is always helping everyone else and hanging out in the background. Never looking for his more until he connects with a stranger online. One thing leads to another but real life comes slamming down on them both and makes for angst. MY FAVORITE. lol

I love Kylie Scott's stories, they always leave me wanting more yet completely sated at the same time. Can't wait for the next installment.


Devil You Know by L.A. Fiore

Holy angst! I love it when you have a story going just the way you need/want it to go and BAM..enter angst. The time that separates these two time and time again only adds to the absolute love and devotion that they have for each other. Twist after twist keeps you wanting, longing for both of these characters to finally get what they desperately need from each other. Soulmates from the time they met, nothing can keep these two from finally seeing there happily ever after....right?

LOVED it!! I recommend this one highly. Between the incredible writing style of L.A. Fiore and the heart churning story she effortlessly brings to light, you will not be disappointed.

Running Mate by Katie Ashley

Addison was having one of those know the kind...nothing goes right and just when she thinks it can't get any worse..she is called out of her office and led to a private meeting with her boss. This. Can't. Be. Good. But the once bad day is about to make a very high priced turn. Enter Barrett Callahan.

Barrett is balls deep in everything that is hot and has a pulse. He is a rich playboy that doesn't want the happily ever after. He is happy with the "happy endings" he receives every night from a different willing participant. His dad decides to take his senate seat to another level and go for President, the one thing Barrett doesn't lack is love and respect for his family. So when he is approached with faking an engagement for the sake of his father's candidacy, he knows he has to.

This arrangement starts with snark, sexual innuendos, moonings and dick picks. It progresses into true friendship, quality time and a sexual attraction that simply can not be denied. The banter and quick wit from both of these vivacious characters kept me smiling, connected and cheering for them to be able to make something that starts fake into the real deal. Giving both of them the "happy ending" they both have earned and deserve.

P.S. Having loved all of Katie's books I was SO excited to get a glimpse of Abby from Music Of The Heart (My Fav)! I love Jake and Abby

Cole by Tijan

I don't have to read a blurb to enter into a world that Tijan decides to create. I know I will be taken on a journey, with characters I fall in love with, and words that make me connect to these lives as if they are mine. So when I began reading Cole, color me surprised that I didn't actually meet him until well into the story. Because of this, I had time to relate and really bond with Addison. The strength she was once known for is tested and after you know her story you realize the pain she recently endured is palpable, her friendship the one light in her very darkened world. So when said friend puts a thought into her head, a move seems inevitable and the life she once led gets turns on it's ass.

One glance, Addison knows that this man she sees only momentarily oozes power, exudes strength and is a scary mofo. The air around him is tense, hard and she can't seem to look away. While she seems taken by a simple passing by, he is taken immediately by her with one look. These two have an undeniable attraction that Tijan is so versed at not only creating but maintaining throughout the story. Having something worth losing makes people vulnerable, Addison might have the power to become Cole's biggest weakness. Mafia, blood, violence, secrets, and so much more is played out in this easy to read journey that keeps you guessing, hoping and loving. Cole is a must read.

Blush For Me by Kristen Proby

This series is a fun glimpse into the world of strong, independent, business minded women that love hard, protect each other, but like to end the day with good wine, food and the love of a strong man. Each time you get a little more invested with all of them. This one had Kat leading the story and she led it well.

Mac and Kat met in a stressful situation that landed them together for an extended amount of time, out of the daily grind they decided to an agreement that they would have their sexcation and nothing more....or....not.

The saying it's a small world would sum this up, if Mac didn't know where Kat worked. Having that knowledge set the stage for a meet...but what they didn't know was they had been closer than they realized. I totally enjoyed these two together. The banter, friendship and the fact that they allowed each other to be themselves and still were able to find the balance to make their differences shine brighter. The strength of character they both possess makes it impossible to not fall hard for them. Add some drama, cocktails, sex times and a man that will hold back your hair. I'm sprung.

Can't wait for more from these girls. Love catching up with them all.

I heard this song and immediately thought of this story--->enjoy
