Even if he has to slide into her DMs to do it. . . .

My Review: IF WE FLY by Nina Lane

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first crush, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered. After ten years, I’ve returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain.

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I’d loved is gone. Now he’s a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my resentment and my lust.

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm.

But this time, there is no escape.

My Review of IF WE FLY

“Don’t let go,” she says. “I won’t.” I lead her to the glittering wheel spinning against the night sky. “Come on, Josie Bird. Let’s fly.”
.
Oh, this series…I’m so in love with this series. I can’t say it enough…if you can, read this series!! Nina Lane has such a beautiful way with descriptive words. Her words tore my heart out at times. But read these beautiful examples:
.
“I keep going, desperate suddenly to run and keep running until the wind pushes me up into the sky, and I disappear.”
.
“A smile opens up from the middle of my soul, and a strange feeling lifts my heart. For an instant, I don’t recognize it. It’s light and airy, almost sparkly, like a purple balloon rising into the sky….Happiness.”
.
There were others, but I didn’t want to show you any that gave away anything.
This story about Cole and Josie really is heart wrenching. As I said in my review for IF WE FALL a tragic accident tears their world apart. Now in IF WE FLY, slowly we see things coming together again. But it’s not so easy. Nina Lane did a beautiful job weaving together love between Cole and Josie, love for family, and solving Josie’s mystery from her amnesia as a result of the the accident. By the time the book ended, I was so in love with the story that I wanted to start from the beginning and read it all over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
5++ Flying STARS!!!

My Review of IF WE FALL 

I’m still trying to stitch my heart back together, and open a new box of tissues. This was a really…ugh…gut wrenching read. Just…such broken characters and raw emotions. Nina Lane really knows how to dig in deep.

First thing I’ll say is, make sure you read the prequel first!!! There’s too much you won’t understand if you don’t!!! Now, Cole and Josie are NOT in a good place. It’s VERY emotional and angsty. Josie comes home from California after 10 years to find that Cole isn’t the same person that he was before. Really Josie isn’t the same person either. They were both affected by the crash that happened all those years ago. Josie has amnesia and she cannot remember what happened after she left the anniversary party, until waking up in the hospital. She reads the police report over and over trying to remember what happened that day. She has nightmares and scary faces that she painted when she was in California. But now since coming back home she seeing the scary faces when she’s awake.
.
I don’t want to say too much and ruin the story for you. So I’m going to make this review a short one. But it’s interesting because it’s a little bit of a mystery, there’s romance, but then there’s angst and a lot of emotion. Then we’re left off wanting to know what happens in book two of the duet, IF WE FLY.
.
There were times that the book got me so emotional, and I haven’t been in a good place lately, that I thought I was going to hate this book. But Nina Lane has some unbelievable talent! She has won me over. I will be checking out some more of her books!! I am definitely giving this all the stars for all the feels!! I can’t wait to see what’s next!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
5++ Falling Stars

My Review of IF WE LEAP(Prequel)
.
This is the prequel to the What If Duet. It pulled me in from the very start. Her characters are so well written and very complex. Cole and Josie are the two main characters. They met as children and Josie befriended Cole, whether he wanted her to or not. But Cole was a broken and abused boy who had no friends and Josie was a tiny little thing, a couple years younger than him, that he felt the need to protect. Josie looked at him like he was her hero, she looked at him with respect. No one had ever looked at him like that before. So Cole and Josie became very special to each other.

Years later, now in College, Josie and Cole see each other again. They’re still very special to each other. Josie still looks at Cole the same way. But Cole is so damaged from years of abuse and manipulation from his father. He doesn’t feel he deserves Josie and he doesn’t want to pull her into his mess of a life. My heart really went out to Cole. Josie loves him, but loving a damaged and broken person is not so easy.

I can’t wait to read the Duet!! This is my first time reading Nina Lane and I’m already SO IMPRESSED!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5++ Leaping Stars

Review of FIVE WEEKS by Dannika Dark

I love Jericho’s story. It’s been a little while since reading the first two books, but I remember when reading them that in the background Jericho always seemed to be pretty messed up. I figured it was the rock star thing. Little did I know that in his past was a feisty red shifter named Izzy (Isabelle), and he had never gotten over her. There had been misunderstandings, miscommunications and underneath it all there was love that had never been declared, never been acted upon. Just hearts broken and live’s changed, and they hadn’t seen each other since.

What’s so cool is the people couldn’t get it right, but the wolves never stopped loving each other.

This is such a beautiful, emotional, powerful love story. My favorite one in the series so far. Also the pack dynamic, as in the first two books, is so well written. Dannika Dark sure does know her way around the paranormal world, and I just love every word she writes!! I lap it right up.

Straight Up Love by Lexi Ryan
Published: May 08, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

straight_amazon.jpg

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman who’d do anything to have a baby and the man who’d do anything to have her…

For my 30th birthday, I’m giving myself the one thing I want most: a baby. Sure, this would be easier if I had a husband—or even a boyfriend—but I refuse to be thwarted by minor details.

When I drunkenly confess my plans to my friends, they convince me to ask Jake Jackson for help. Jake, the best friend who’s been there for me through thick and thin. Jake, who also happens to be smart, funny, ridiculously good looking, and the winner of all the genetic lotteries.

So when Jake takes me up on my request—with the stipulation that we get the job done the old-fashioned way—I’d be a fool to decline.

The only problem? I don’t know if I can separate sex from all the things I feel for this amazing man. If I can’t keep my heart under lock and key, I risk losing the relationship I need the most.

Jake has his own reasons for granting my baby wish. But when I discover his secrets, it could mean the end of us. I have to choose—run or stay and fight for love.

Fall for the boys of Jackson Harbor in Lexi Ryan’s sexy new contemporary romance series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

My Review

I really loved the first book in The Boys of Jackson Harbor Series, so I just had to read this one!! OMG! Lexi Ryan is moving up on my list of one click authors!
 
This was such a sweet friends to lovers romance. Jake! Oh lord, Jake is such a sweet, sexy, dependable friend….how she remained JUST his friend for so long, I do. not. know! Except that Ava hasn’t always been treated very nice by the men in her life, her father, her ex-husband….they put her down and made her feel not enough. It was ALWAYS her friendship with Jake that got her through everything. He was always there for her. And when Ava decides she’s gonna have a baby, it’s Jake who is going to be there for her again. Why? Because Jake loves Ava.
 
Don’t miss this one guys. It’s a beautiful story. It gets very emotional at times, but you will love it! Just look at that cover, aren’t they a gorgeous couple?! And I must say Jake is definitely perfect book boyfriend material!!

Excerpt:

Ava’s crawling back down the bed and pulling the covers over her head.

“Can we talk about this?” I ask.

“No,” she says, her voice muffled.

I cross the room and pull the blanket off her head. I know she’s hungover, but I can’t just walk away from this conversation. I barely slept last night, freaking torn up about her pregnancy and all its implications, and now she’s telling me she’s not pregnant. She just wants to be, and she wants my help.

What the fuck does that mean?

“Talk.” I fold my arms across my chest.

“I want a family, and I’m sick of waiting for Mr. Right to come along, so I’m going to do it on my own.”

“And you want my help?” Hell. I’m trying really hard not to jump to conclusions here. Emphasis on hard.

“Yeah. I mean, no. I mean . . .” She takes a deep breath. “It sounded like a good idea last night.”

Doing baby-making things with Ava sounds like a good idea to me every minute of every hour of every damn day, but I’m quite aware that doing that with me doesn’t cross her mind nearly as often. Okay, or ever. “Last night, when you asked for my help, you meant you wanted me to get you pregnant?”

She scowls. “Are you being dense on purpose?”

“I promise I’m not.” But if ever there was a conversation where I’m going to need things spelled out for me, this is it. “I just want to make sure I understand.”

She presses her palm to her forehead. “I just wanted you to jack off in a cup and hand it to me. Not the weird way.”

Right. Because that wouldn’t be weird. “I’m sorry.” I hold up a finger. “Give me a sec.” I walk around the room, scanning the ceiling and the corners. I check behind the lamp and crack the closet to look in there.

“What are you doing, Jake?”

I spin on her. “I’m looking for the camera—the one you planted before you Punk’d me. Is that show even still a thing? Because I’m sure I’m being Punk’d right now.”

Release Day! GENTLEMAN NINE by Penelope Ward

 

 

 

Amazon | iBooks | Amazon Paperback | Nook | Kobo | AUDIO Amazon | Audible

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

 

Growing up, the three of us were friends.

He was the nerd.

I was the playboy.

She was the beauty.

 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

 

I went off to college, and he got the girl.

Amber never knew how I felt.

They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

 

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

G9,

Is that what your friends call you? I like that. Thanks for the answers.

That’s an interesting question—why tonight of all nights? Well, I saw my ex tagged on Facebook with another woman, and that put me over the edge. But it’s more than that. Lately, I’ve developed a strong attraction to a good friend of mine, and that’s sort of screwing with me a bit. He’s actually temporarily living in my condo, but he’s someone I’ve known for years. I’ve always thought he was extremely handsome, but it’s complicated. He and I would not be a good match romantically. He’s not the monogamous type, or at least, he never used to be. We’re better off as friends. He was also the best friend of my ex years back, so there’s that. Having him around, though, has made me more sensitized to my sexual desires. Little things like the waft of his scent, the way he touches the small of my back when he passes by me in the kitchen…it’s like my body is on this constant state of alert. So, I was thinking if I could just—for lack of a better word—get laid, maybe I could get this feeling out of my system.

 

Amber

 

My jaw was open as I just sat there staring at the screen.

Holy shit.

I read it again.

And again.

And again.

I honestly didn’t think that Amber felt that way about me. She would always make jokes about me being good-looking, but her attraction to Rory proved that her taste wasn’t exactly conventional. Now, I really felt like shit for invading her privacy, because there was no way she would’ve been okay with confessing that to me. I never imagined any of this had to do with me. I’d assumed it was solely about Rory.

She wanted to use another man to f*ck me out of her system?

That revelation left me shocked and confused—not to mention hard as f*ck thinking about the fact that Amber wanted me.
