The Catch by K. Bromberg

Wow. I've found a new book boy toy and his name is Easton Wylder! I enjoyed this one but what I love the most about it, is the way these two characters love each other. No gimmicks, no games, just truth..loyalty and devotion. It's a rarity these days and even if it's in fiction I am happy to witness it. 

The ups and downs, revelations and conflict that came up through out this story didn't surprise me; but the way each of the characters handled themselves through the journey was refreshing. Easton and Scout's love was tested at every level, and at the end of the day what they shared was stronger than anything else.  As always Ms Bromberg brings us a couple worthy of the time you allocate to reading her words. Great duet..
Ps I even teared up at the end. Powerful connection with these ones.

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 the 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.
