โฌ‡๏ธ MY REVIEW โฌ‡๏ธ

This was a fun book that I was able to breeze through. I always love Carlyโ€™s characters. She writes great characters. The dialogue probably helps, but also she gives them pasts and emotional scars, they have layers. Itโ€™s enjoyable to watch them work through that as they fall in love and help each other heal. In this book both Parker and Emily had layers and it was beautiful watching them heal each other, sometimes without even realizing it. I loved them as a couple. Parker was hot, and there were some nice steamy scenes between them. I definitely recommend this as an easy, fun and enjoyable read.

My Review: MY HEART TO GIVE by S.B. Alexander

My Heart to Give (A Maxwell Family Saga Book 3)

by S.B. Alexander

 

8B992B08-8948-437F-A56D-CACDA112ABF4Girls fall in love with what they hear.

QUINN THOMPSON

Iโ€™m head over heels in love with Maiken Maxwell. Everything about him is so perfect from his sandy-blond hair to his kissable lips. Not to mention, he writes me poems. My stomach is constantly filled with butterflies from his sweet words to how special and pretty he makes me feel. Until one girl, one funeral, and one disastrous moment shatters everything.

MAIKEN MAXWELL

My life has been a series of the good, the bad, and the ugly. My junior year is starting off with a bang. My brother Marcus, now a freshman in high school, is out of control, fighting and mouthing off to teachers. I shouldnโ€™t care so much. After all, heโ€™s a teenager who is trying to find his way, trying to fit in. But I do care. Iโ€™m his big brother. But when a new girl waltzes into our lives, the three things that matter the most to me, family, Quinn Thompson, and basketball, slowly become a distant memory.

๐Ÿ€MY REVIEW๐Ÿ€

As we are getting to know not only Quinn Thompson and Maiken Maxwell, we are also getting to know more and more of Maikenโ€™s family. Not just their personality, but what they are dealing with at such a young age and how theyโ€™re dealing with it. Which each one is very different.

They came to Massachusetts to stay with their Uncle, Aunt and cousins because of their fatherโ€™s death. Since then theyโ€™ve been dealing with the grief of losing a father, a home, and friends back from their old school. They were dealing pretty well until their motherโ€™s sister, their Aunt, got sick and she had to leave. The family became divided, although Kade took them in and treated them well. He took an interest in what they did, helped where he could. But when one of the boys started acting out, drinking and acting reckless, then things got difficult. Maiken took on the stress of being the oldest and feeling responsible to keep everyone under control, and he started to worry that Kade would make them leave.

I donโ€™t want to say too much, and ruin the story for you! But I will say that this is the most ansgty, stressful book out of the series so far. You DONโ€™T want to miss it!!! If you havenโ€™t started the series so far, I highly recommend it!!! Itโ€™s a YA Contemporary Romance and thereโ€™s ALWAYS something going on!!! You will love it!!!

Cover & Trailer Reveal: ONLY EVER YOU by Siobhan Davis

OEY_CTR.jpg

Heโ€™s the hot-as-sin rocker hiding a secret that would devastate his fans. Sheโ€™s the only girl heโ€™s ever loved, but keeping her safe means he had to walk awayโ€ฆ

Only Ever You, an all-new second chance standalone from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is coming February 28th, and we have the sexy new cover for you!

OnlyEverYou_ecover.jpg

RYDER

My entire life is a lie, propelled by one wrong decision that altered my fate.

If fans knew the truth, theyโ€™d run away screaming. But all they see is Ryder Stone, moody guitarist and lead singer of Torment, and a potential notch on their bedpost.

Only two people know who I really am. My manager has a vested interest in keeping my secret, and the girl I was forced to leave behind doesnโ€™t even know the true extent of my shame.

Losing Zeta is both my biggest regret and my proudest moment. But she was the glue keeping me together, and Iโ€™m struggling to survive without her. Especially when the demons from my past continue to haunt me and the threat of disclosure is ever present.

When she reappears in my life, this time, Iโ€™m too weak to push her away.

Her love has the power to save me.

Mine has the power to destroy her.

ZETA

Iโ€™ve worked hard to forget my past. To rise above my messed-up childhood and make something of myself; however, thereโ€™s no forgetting him.

Ryderโ€™s gorgeous face and drool-worthy body are plastered over tabloids and TV screens, reminding me Iโ€™m still in love with the boy who captured my heart in juvie.

When he failed me, I thought Iโ€™d never again experience such heart-crushing pain. But watching him fall out of clubs with a succession of different girls renews the agony, resurrecting countless unanswered questions.

Now my boss has sent me to interview him. Itโ€™s a massive scoop for the magazine, and turning it down would kill my career. So, I delude myself into thinking I can handle this.

Perhaps this is the closure I need to finally move on.

Except Iโ€™m terrified nothing has changed and one look into those soulful eyes will suck me in again.

Ryder almost destroyed me last time. This time, he could ruin me forever.

Blog Tour & REVIEW: Sufferance by KE Osborn

.
Title: Sufferance
Series: The Chicago Defiance MC Series #4
Author: KE Osborn
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: January 9, 2019
Cover Design: Kellie Dennis from Book Cover by Design

.
.

โ€œThis book is everything I love about MC romance. It has sassy biker babes, alpha makes, intense emotions, and the unexpected.โ€ ~Amazon Review

 

โ€œI was totally captivated throughout this addictive masterpiece, and I cannot wait to read more from this talented author, whose work I highly recommend for all MC lovers!โ€ ~Wendyโ€™s Book Blog

 

โ€œThis story is full of drama, tension, angst, twists, heat, passion and romance.โ€ ~Aprilโ€™s Blog of Awesomeness

.
.
.
We were destined.
But time and fate are not on our side.
My presidentโ€”her blood brother.
My patchโ€”so close I can taste it.
Yet, I have to choose. Is there really a choice?
My club or the girl.
This woman shines brightly. She’s adored, worshiped, and cherished by everyone, not only me. I’m just the unlucky prospect who fell for her.
But we’re complicated. I want my patch, but I can’t have her and it at the same time.
This story isn’t only about a man fighting to have bothโ€”itโ€™s secrets, battles, defection, and scandal.
Betrayalโ€”itโ€™s imminent.
How will we deal with our sufferance?

MY REVIEW

As a big fan of this series, Chicago Defiance MC, I have been waiting for this story of Neala and Tremor! Neala being the Club Princess, sister of the Club President and Vice President, and Tremor being only a prospect. There was a lot of angst in this one. With Tremor staying away from Neala because her big brother, and Tremorโ€™s Club President didnโ€™t want them together. Tremor wanted Neala and his patch, and to truly be a part of the Club. Neala just wanted Tremor. So you can see where there was a lot of frustration and angst. But it was a great story! Sometimes very emotional. So much happens. Lots of heat in this one…very hot!! Plus, of course, lots of Club action. If it seems Iโ€™m being vague, itโ€™s on purpose. I hate when people ruin the book for you and I refuse to do that. But if you enjoy a good MC Romance, this is a great series!!! Iโ€™m already looking forward to book 5 next month!!! Highly recommended!!!

Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry and get completely enveloped in the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldnโ€™t consider doing anything else.

Blurb
They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my fatherโ€™s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.

Two men.

Three lives.

Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

 

 

Excerpt
โ€œAre you sure youโ€™re on my card?โ€ I turned to the man with a polite yet distant smile. I was still disoriented from the exchange with Angelo when the stranger pulled me against his hard body and pressed a possessive hand lower than socially acceptable on my back, a second from groping my butt.

โ€œAnswer me,โ€ I hissed.

โ€œMy bid on your card was the highest,โ€ he replied dryly.

โ€œThe bids are undisclosed. You donโ€™t know how much other people have paid,โ€ I kept my lips pursed to keep myself from yelling.

โ€œI know itโ€™s nowhere near the realm of what this dance is worth.โ€

Un-freaking-believable.

We began to waltz around the room as other couples were not only spinning and mingling but also stealing envious glances at us. Naked, raw ogles that told me that whomever the blonde heโ€™d come to the masquerade with was, she wasnโ€™t his wife. And that I might have been all the rage in The Outfit, but the rude man was in high demand, too.

I was stiff and cold in his arms, but he didnโ€™t seem to noticeโ€”or mind. He knew how to waltz better than most men, but he was technical, and lacked warmth and Angeloโ€™s playfulness.

โ€œNemesis.โ€ He took me by surprise, his rapacious gaze stripping me bare. โ€œDistributing glee and dealing misery. Seems at odds with the submissive girl who entertained Bishop and his horsey wife at the table.โ€

I choked on my own saliva. Did he just call the governorโ€™s wife horsey? And me submissive? I looked away, ignoring the addictive scent of his cologne, and the way his marble body felt against mine.

โ€œNemesis is my spirit animal. She was the one to lure Narcissus to a pool where he saw his own reflection and died of vanity. Pride is a terrible illness.โ€ I flashed him a taunting smirk.

โ€œSome of us could use catching it.โ€ He bared his straight white teeth.

โ€œArrogance is a disease. Compassion is the cure. Most gods didnโ€™t like Nemesis, but thatโ€™s because she had a backbone.โ€

โ€œDo you?โ€ He arched a dark eyebrow.

โ€œDo Iโ€ฆ?โ€ I blinked, the courteous grin on my face crumpling. He was even ruder when we were alone.

โ€œHave a backbone,โ€ he provided. He stared at me so boldly and intimately, it felt like he breathed fire into my soul. I wanted to step out of his touch and jump into a pool full of ice.

โ€œOf course, I do,โ€ I responded, my spine stiffening. โ€œWhatโ€™s with the manners? Were you raised by wild coyotes?โ€

โ€œGive me an example,โ€ he said, ignoring my quip. I was beginning to draw away from him, but he jerked me back into his arms. The glitzy ballroom distorted into a backdrop, and even though I was starting to notice that the man behind the demi-mask was unusually beautiful, the ugliness of his behavior was the only thing that stood out.

I am a warrior and a ladyโ€ฆand a sane person who can deal with this horrid man.

โ€œI really like Angelo Bandini.โ€ I dropped my voice, slicing my gaze from his eyes and toward the table where Angeloโ€™s family had been seated. My father was sitting a few seats away, staring at us coldly, surrounded by Made Men who chatted away.

โ€œAnd see, in my family, we have a tradition dating back ten generations. Prior to her wedding, a Rossi bride is to open a wooden chestโ€”carved and made by a witch who lived in my ancestorsโ€™ Italian villageโ€”and read three notes written to her by the last Rossi girl to marry. Itโ€™s kind of a good luck charm mixed with a talisman and a bit of fortunetelling. I stole the chest tonight and opened one of the notes, all so I could rush fate. It said that tonight I was going to be kissed by the love of my life, and wellโ€ฆโ€ I drew my lower lip into my mouth and sucked it, peering under my eyelashes at Angeloโ€™s empty seat. The man stared at me stoically, as though I was a foreign film he couldnโ€™t understand. โ€œIโ€™m going to kiss him tonight.โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s your backbone?โ€

โ€œWhen I have an ambition, I go for it.โ€

A conceited frown crinkled his mask, as if to say I was a complete and utter moron. I looked him straight in the eye. My father taught me that the best way to deal with men like him was to confront, not run. Because, this man? Heโ€™d chase.

MY REVIEW

โ€œI loathed him. But I also craved him. Terribly.โ€

WOW!!! Thatโ€™s it….just WOW!!! I donโ€™t know how to express how great this book was! How intense, complicated, angsty, messy…it just about broke me at times. The characters were so flawed, so complicated, and it tore my heart to shreds at times. It was beautiful as walls were lowered and eyes were opened to truths and realities. But then something would happen to try and ruin that progress. But it was beautiful to watch how love grew, unknowingly, and the beauty in the way it was all presented to us. Iโ€™m rambling, I know! This is LJ Shenโ€™s best book yet!!! And that is completely un-freaking-believable!!! Wolfe and Francesca…they will continue to haunt me for a while, this is not the kind of book you finish and move on. Itโ€™s going to be with me for a while now.
HUGELY RECOMMEND THIS ONE!!! ALL THE FREAKIN STARS, ALL OF THEM!!!

Review: My Heart to Touch (A Maxwell Family Saga Book 1) by S.B. Alexander

My Heart to Touch (A Maxwell Family Saga Book 1)

S.B. Alexander

 

8DED95AA-BF33-4ECA-AD43-6E788E353D85The shy ones are diamonds in the rough.

QUINN THOMPSON

When I walk into a room, the popular kids whisper about me. I donโ€™t own designer clothes or name-brand shoes. I donโ€™t wear low-cut shirts or tons of makeup either. Iโ€™m as plain Jane as a girl can get. I live on a farm, where the uniform of the day is boots, jeans, and a T-shirt unless itโ€™s winter; then I trade my T-shirts for heavy sweaters and a parka. Baggy is my style.

But Iโ€™m considered one of the nerds in school for reasons besides my wardrobe. I have my nose in books while the popular girls have their noses up jocksโ€™ butts. I do everything I can to avoid the in crowd at Kensington Highโ€”until a new boy waltzes in. Heโ€™s tall like my brothers, handsome like Zach Efron, and disrupts my belief that boys only want one thing. My only problem is heโ€™ll never notice me, not if my arch-nemesis has any say.

MAIKEN MAXWELL

Basketball has been my life until my dad died. Iโ€™m trying not to get depressed, but itโ€™s hard to breathe sometimes. Heโ€™ll never cheer from the stands at any of my basketball games or shout at me to shoot that three-pointer. I promised him I would step up if anything happened to him, and now itโ€™s time to be the man of the house.

Only Iโ€™m torn between playing for the Kensington High basketball team and finding a jobโ€”until the girl with butterscotch hair snags my attention. Sheโ€™s pretty, quirky, and her presence takes my mind off my troubles. Above all else, she makes me feel things that Iโ€™ve never felt before. In my mind, girls are just a distraction. Theyโ€™re nice to look at, they talk too much, and theyโ€™re extremely pushy. Yet Quinn Thompson might change my opinion that all girls are created equal.

Well I have been dying to read this book since the announcement of a Maxwell boys spinoff series. I can definitely say it was worth the wait!!! S. B. Alexander does not disappoint. Her characters are so well written, and you canโ€™t help but like the two main characters. I just wish there was a little more romance between them, but maybe we have to wait for book two for things to build more. She wrote in the perfect โ€œmeanโ€ characters! If I could have reached into my kindle and slapped them, I definitely would have!! The parents, the siblings, everyone was so interesting. Then seeing Kade Maxwell so involved, i kept thinking what a great dad heโ€™s going to be! We even had a few scenes with Lacey!

The pace moved right along, i never found myself getting bored. Just the opposite, I didnโ€™t want to put it down, especially once i really got into the story. I think the overall plot was very relatable to young adults that age. The shyness, dealing with loss, bullying, pressure in school, etc. But Iโ€™m interested to see where the storyline picks up next. How much more bullying can kids take before they stand up and….what? Iโ€™m wondering what will happen next?? Iโ€™m very excited to read the next book and find out!!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone who enjoys YA Romance!!! S. B. Alexander is a phenomenal writer and you wonโ€™t be disappointed!!

Excerpt:

Grimโ€™s expression softens. โ€œLet me make you feel good. Let me erase some of the hurt.โ€ He pulls me against him for a searing kiss that makes me want nothing more than for him to be inside of me. Injuries be damned.

His lips release me all too quickly. The gentle night breeze licks across my wet mouth, cooling my lips.

Grim continues to my neck, sucking behind my ear.

I dig my fingernails into his back as he trails his talented tongue down my shoulder then across my chest until heโ€™s staring at my naked breasts. โ€œPerfect, beautiful tits,โ€ he whispers with such awe it almost sounds like a prayer.

Sucking my nipple into his warm mouth, he toys with it between his teeth and tongue.

I kick out my legs, needing more. So much more.

“Shhhh…I got you, Tricks.”

I groan into the night as he moves to worship my other nipple. Iโ€™m in ecstasy and frustrated all at the same time.

He lowers his lips down my body, trailing his lips across my skin, down past my navel. When he reaches my shorts, he tugs at the button. I lift my hips, to assist him in ridding the barrier of clothing between us.

โ€œTell me if I hurt you,โ€ he murmurs, his breath creates a tingling sensation against my already sensitive and swollen clit.

I can only nod my response because his lips are on me again, silencing my words and consuming my thoughts. He’s kissing me passionately in my most intimate place, parting my pussy lips with his tongue and lapping me up like I’m the most delicious morsel heโ€™s ever tasted. He groans against my core.

I’m holding onto him for dear life, my fingers splayed in his hair to anchor him to me and me to the ground.

Grim massages my inner thigh with one hand while he works a thick finger inside of me with the other. Gently, too gently. There is no pain, only Grim and pleasure and everything I want in the world right here between my legs.

I tense as he sucks my clit into his mouth. A feeling of pure electric heat sizzles throughout my body. My insides ache as the pressure builds and builds from a spark into an uncontrollable raging fire.

He lifts away slightly, teasing me by blowing softly across my wet pink folds. I shutter so hard my teeth chatter. Arching my back, I pull on his hair, greedily and shamelessly grinding myself against his perfect face.

He must like my reaction, because he groans against me, fucking me with his fingers and licking me over and over again like a crazed animal. As if making me come is all that’s important in this world.

โ€œIโ€™m close,โ€ I tell him, pulling his hair even harder, egging him on.

He lets out a guttural groan, flattening his tongue against my clit, stroking it up and down and back again.

The tension I feel within me is borderline pain, twisting me from the inside out. I’m about to burst through my own skin.

Grim lightly bites my clit before sucking it into hard his mouth one last time.

I come apart on a roar of my own, screaming his name into the night. I contract around his tongue, coating it in a flush of wetness I can feel dripping down my ass cheeks as I writhe against his face. The pleasure smashes into me over and over again, shattering me into pieces like a hammer against glass.

For the very first time in my life, Iโ€™m happy to be broken.

Blog Tour & My REVIEW: Wrapped In Love by Lexi Ryan

WIL-BT BANNER.jpg

Wrapped in Love by Lexi Ryan

Release Date: December 4th, 2018

wrapped_amazon.jpg

Wrapped in Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Lexi Ryan.

The rumors are true. Iโ€™m a hot mess with an awful track record at love. Single mom. Down on her luck. Yeah, Iโ€™m bad news.

If the hardest part of moving back home to Jackson Harbor was going to be people talking, Iโ€™d be fine. Iโ€™ve kept my chin up through worse than their decade-old gossip.

I was wrong. The hardest part is resisting my boss. Brayden Jackson is the very picture of tall, dark, and handsome. And thanks to an ill-advised one-night stand we had seven months ago, I know exactly what Iโ€™m missing when I turn him down. Every. Single. Delicious. Inch.

But I have my son to care for and my job to keep, so Iโ€™ll keep on saying no.

Until my string of bad luck continues, and suddenly my precious four-year-old and I find ourselves with nowhere to live. At Christmas, no less. Itโ€™s for my son that I accept Braydenโ€™s offer to stay at his place. One by one, my defenses are falling, as fast as I am. If Brayden was smart, heโ€™d run, because itโ€™s only a matter of time before he realizes he deserves better than what a girl like me can offer.

Unless, for once, my bad luck is leading me exactly where I need to be.

WIL-Teaser 10 AN.jpg

Excerpt:

โ€œOh, and this box wasnโ€™t labeled. Where do you want it?โ€ Brayden pulls open the flaps of the box he set on the bed when he entered. โ€œLooks like there are some washcloths in here. And . . .โ€ He lifts a stack of washcloths and peers at the contents beneath. His eyes go wide. โ€œOh.โ€

The moment my brain registers what heโ€™s looking at, I lunge for him and smack a hand over his eyes. I intentionally put that box in my car, separate from the others. And I forgot.

Braydenโ€™s chest rumbles with laughter, and I want the floor to open up and swallow me whole.

Brayden Jackson just saw my entire vibrator collection.

He gently pulls my hand away, revealing eyes full of mischief.

I squeak. โ€œDonโ€™t look in that box again.โ€

His lips twitch. โ€œBut I really, really want to.โ€

I point a finger at him. โ€œDonโ€™t you dare.โ€

He presses his lips into a thin line, amusement dancing in his eyes. Then, as if he canโ€™t help himself, he asks, โ€œAre they all pink?โ€

โ€œShut up!โ€ My cheeks are on fire.

His voice is the softest caress of a whisper when he says, โ€œMolly, your cheeks are almost as pink as your vibrators.โ€

I smack both hands against his chest. โ€œYou did not just say that word!โ€

โ€œVibrators?โ€ He grins. Not one of his smirks or half smiles, but a grin, and damn me and my stupid chemical attraction to this man, because it makes me want to slam the bedroom door closed and climb him like a tree. โ€œIf you donโ€™t like the word, why do you haveโ€”โ€

I throw my hand over his mouth. โ€œDonโ€™t say it. We agreed weโ€™d keep our relationship professionalโ€”thatโ€™s what we both wanted. So donโ€™t say it. Donโ€™t even think about it.โ€ Then, because I realize his lips are pressed to my palm and it reminds me too much of our night in New York when his lips were everywhere, I back away.

The warm amusement in his eyes turns to heat. โ€œFirst of all,โ€ he says, his voice like silky steel, โ€œthose were your rules, not mine. I agreed for you, not because thatโ€™s what I want.โ€ He drags his gaze over me, and my heart pounds so fast it feels like a hummingbirdโ€™s trying to escape my chest. โ€œSecond, even if I tried not to think about you using your little collection of pink toys, Iโ€™d fail miserably.โ€ He dips his head, and I can feel his breath against my ear as he says, โ€œIโ€™m already thinking about it, and I will be for a long time yet.โ€

The Boys of Jackson Harbor series has been the most enjoyable series. Because in each book it features one of those Jackson brothers and let me tell you, each and every one of them is book boyfriend material. How can one family have so many gorgeous boys, that are so sweet and loving, but an alpha in the bedroom. There is one sister, and Iโ€™m looking forward to reading about her love story too.

This is the fourth book in the series, and honestly I didnโ€™t know if I was going to like the female lead in it because of her past role in book 3. I loved Brayden, I mean really loved him. Heโ€™s really something very special. We havenโ€™t had a peek at who Brayden really is before now, but he is absolutely wonderful!
It was Molly that I was really afraid I wouldnโ€™t be able to open up to. And at the beginning I still wasnโ€™t so sure. But Lexi Ryan knows how to open someone up and reveal whatโ€™s truly inside. Thatโ€™s what she did with Molly. I came to really love Molly. She ended up being good for Brayden, as he was for her. They go through some challenges and heartbreak, but they get through it. I found the end so heartwarming and Molly and her son, Noah, truly belong with the Jackson family. I canโ€™t wait till the next book, where Carter Jackson gets his happily ever after!!

Itโ€™s an intense and angsty second chance romance. Donโ€™t miss this wonderful romance. I highly recommend it.
