Balance by Lucia Franco (Off Balance #1)

 5 Stars!

Balance by Lucia Franco is the first book in the Off Balance trilogy. I picked it up on Kindle Unlimited after seeing someone rave about it on Instagram. She was completely right about it. This book is intense, sexy, and TABOO. The next book, Execution, doesn’t even have a release date yet but I am in line for it.

There are some definite warnings that need to go with this book. You have to be able to deal with:

  • Forbidden Romance – Adrianna is a 15 year old gymnast, and Kova is her 32 year old coach.
  • An Affair – Kova is cheating on his girlfriend of 5 years with Adrianna.
  • Kova is a dick — ok, so that one isn’t really a TABOO thing, but he IS a dick.

Balance is currently on sale for $.99 or FREE with Kindle Unlimited.

Love Me in the Dark by Mia Asher

4.5 Stars

Deciding to read Love Me in the Dark by Mia Asher was a no-brainer. Arsen is on my must-read-ASAP list, and even though I haven’t gotten to it, I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about it from my most trusted GoodReads friends.

Love Me in the Dark is emotional and completely immersive. I felt like I was in Paris with Valentina and Sebastien. I felt everything while reading this book.

I wish I were anywhere else but here, standing next to a man who makes me feel as though I’m drowning and flying at the same time. But even that lie sounds empty to my ears. Because if I’m honest with myself, there’s no place I’d rather be.

Then there was the Cover-Lust – I love beautiful covers, but I’m not usually a fan of covers with people on them…. especially the half-naked covers that romance novels usually sport. BUT there’s something about the man on this cover that makes me want to buy a copy of it just so I can stare at him…. and stare some more.

This was a great 1st time read for Mia Asher. I definitely see more of her work in my future.

Two strangers
in Paris …
One passionate,
earth-shattering kiss.
He was the
artist upstairs
with the
tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.
He was the
devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to
dance in the bright moonlight.
He was desire
and need.
When he touched
me, my body sang–
my soul came
alive.
But I belonged
to another man,
and he didn’t
want to let me go.

I’m a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, I might be a bit crazy – but who isn’t?I believe in happy endings however I know that not everyone is lucky enough to get one, but such is life. I think fine lines exist to be pushed and possibly crossed.

Love,

Torrid Affair by Callie Anderson – Review & RELEASE BLITZ

5 Stars!

Let me start by saying, that if you don’t like affair books…. then this book definitely isn’t for you. I know its obvious, but in case you got this far and didn’t know the title of the book. You don’t want this one.

I’m not generally into this type of book, but I loved Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens and I read the blurb for Torrid Affair and thought it sounded really interesting. It was soooo good!

Part I of the book was the best part, and also the longest. It’s full of all the swoon-worthy moments that make you fall in love with the characters and their relationship. It’s where you learn to root for them and you feel their heartbreak. And you want to throw your Kindle…. more than once. Part I is from when they were in college.

Part II and III weren’t as good for me as Part I, but they are also much shorter as both of them together take up less than half the book. Obviously they were still good, as i finished the book in less than 2 days, but the characters are a decade older, and not necessarily wiser. I occasionally cry during books, but near the end of this one I was just sitting at the kitchen table while my kids were playing Xbox and the tears were streaming down my face. Luckily I have little boys, so they didn’t even notice, but this story and all the decisions made, tore at my heart.

I would recommend this book for anyone that can handle and enjoy a book with a major emphasis on an affair.

I received a copy of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

I’m fucked.

The life I have lived for the past ten years is built solely on lies and secrets.

But I can’t help myself.

I’m in love with two different men. And one of them is my brother-in-law.

He’s my drug. My fire. My addiction.

But he’s married to my best friend. And I’m married to my husband.

I’m not ashamed. I have no guilt.

None.

I’m not fucked. I’m a fucked up person.

This is the story of how I ruined my life.
