Loving Storm by Carian Cole

4 Stars

Loving Storm was a great followup to Storm. It read like an extended epilogue (though the novella also includes an actual epilogue). Any problems that came up within the book were quickly squashed. Really this is just a lovely look at Storm & Evie’s life together. You definitely need to read Storm before diving into this one. I don’t think you will enjoy this one if you haven’t, but if you have read Storm and you loved these characters then you should definitely give this one a go.

Evie
I met him in a snow storm…
We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.
We fought.
We touched.
We fell.
Hard.

Storm
She literally crashed into my life…
The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.
And I had to have her.
All of her.
Now.

Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.
Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past….not so easy.

Unloved by Katy Regnery

 5 Stars!

Unloved is without a doubt the best book that I have ever read by Katy Regnery. This book captured me from page one and the tears started pretty immediately as well. Being Katy Regnery I expected a HEA but I had no idea how she was going to accomplish it. It seemed a nearly impossible task so I just held on for the ride.

This book has so many absolutely heartbreaking scenes that it makes their love so much sweeter. Cassidy is perfect but believes he is dangerous to society. Brynn is trapped in her past and retreated from the world. They are both so isolated and while Cassidy believes his isolation is necessary, Brynn’s isolation is more an expression of how she grieves. She is still mourning the fiancee she lost in a tragic way 2 years ago. Cassidy and Brynn are broken in their own ways, but obviously perfect for each other.

My name is Cassidy Porter…

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…

Unloved.

In Too Deep by Lexi Ryan (The Blackhawk Boys #5)

4 Stars

I have been in love with the story of Bailey and Mason since I read Spinning Out at the very beginning of the series. They have been my most anticipated couple and the two people I’ve rooted the hardest for. It should come as no surprise that I absolutely inhaled this book.

In Too Deep felt like it was going to be a bit lighter book at the beginning. It had all the makings of a romantic comedy and I was ready for it. I forgot, that the basis of this series seems to be that no matter how much of an open book someone seems…. everyone has secrets. Each of these books could be read as a standalone and In Too Deep is no exception BUT I also think that part of what makes Bailey and Mason’s story so enjoyable is the buildup that you feel watching the push & pull of this couple on the sidelines of every other book. It helped create a delicious anticipation that made reading their story all the more thrilling.

You can’t go wrong with any of the books in The Blackhawk Boys series. I know this is the last book in the series, but is it wrong of me to be hoping that there will be a spinoff with Owen? Every time he popped up in this book it seemed like he had a story to tell. I can’t wait to see what Lexi Ryan comes up with next!

New York
Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan brings readers a sexy NFL player who’s
pulled out all the stops for one more chance with the love of his life.
***
I have four
months to make my wife fall in love with me or let her go forever.
I loved
Bailey Green long before she watched her loser ex take his last breaths. I held
her while they lowered his coffin into the ground, stilled her shaking hands
when the nightmares would tear her from sleep. I waited for her through her
grief. But while she was always willing to let me in her bed, she refused to
let me in the one place I longed to be—her heart.
Tired of
playing second string to a dead man, I let her go. I moved to Florida to begin
my NFL career and tried to pretend my perfect life didn’t leave me empty. I’d
almost given up. Until one drunken night in Vegas, we stumbled down the aisle
and said, “I do.
In exchange
for the divorce she wants so badly, she’s agreed to remain my wife until the
end of the year. She has no idea the favors I’ve called in or the lies I’ve
told to get her here, but if I succeed, none of that matters.
My secrets
always seemed justified, but Bailey has her own—secrets that explain why she
always pushed me away, secrets that make me wonder if I should have let her.
Now we’re in too deep and I might lose the only girl I’ve ever loved and the
best friend I’ve ever had.
In Too Deep is a sexy and emotional novel intended for
mature readers. It’s the fifth book in the world of the Blackhawk Boys, but can
be enjoyed as a standalone.

Excerpt

 

© Lexi Ryan,
2017
“You know,
once you were my friend,” I say. “And maybe that’s what I miss most about us.
Maybe instead of judging me for my decisions, you could try being my friend again.”
He puts his
glass down on the table, his eyes locking on mine before he slowly stalks
toward me.
I lift my
chin, refusing to back down, because dammit,
I shouldn’t have to apologize for wanting Mason’s friendship. Is that so
terrible?
But my
defiant stance doesn’t faze him and he keeps coming, one step at a time, until
he’s finally up against that bubble he prefers to keep between us. He takes
another step and he’s inside it, but still not nearly as close as I want him.
He takes another, and if I had the courage, I could reach out and touch him.
Another step and he’s so close that he has to bend his head down to maintain
eye contact. So close that if I lift onto my toes, I could brush my lips
against his.
I almost
do, if only because fighting with him makes me feel as if there’s something
broken in me, and I want it to be over. I miss the soft stroke of his lips
against mine. I miss the sound of his sweet murmurs as he unbuttoned my pants
and slid my underwear off my hips. I miss the sex, but more than that, I miss
the way he’d hold me after. He held me in a way no one else had ever bothered
to. Not even Nic. Mason would pull me against him, my back to his chest, and
he’d snuggle against me until I could feel the warmth of his breath against my
bare shoulder.
I want all
of that again, and what breaks my heart the most is if I’d known when I took
that deal—if I could have seen into the future and gotten a glimpse of exactly
what I was giving up—I still would have done it. I did what I had to do.
Mason’s
eyes drop to my mouth. “I don’t want to be your friend, Bailey.”
“Yeah,” I
whisper. “You’re making that really clear. All or nothing, am I right?”
His jaw
hardens, and I wouldn’t have thought it possible, but he moves even closer. My
back’s against the sliding glass door, and his body presses into mine. He
shifts until his thigh is between my legs, and then he lifts a hand to my hair,
sliding his thumb up my neck until he’s cupping my jaw. I want to melt because
I’ve missed this so damn much. I’ve missed him
so damn much.
“I’ve never
wanted to be your friend,” he says, shaking his head. And it’s a blow to the
heart I’m not sure I’m strong enough to endure. When I told him we could be
lovers but nothing more, we were friends…best friends. Then he moved down here
and shut me out.
“I’m sorry
my friendship was such a burden.” Fuck, even my sarcasm sounds weak, but this
whole conversation has me vulnerable.
“It wasn’t
a burden. It was a daily reminder of
what I couldn’t have. I thought that if I quit fucking you it wouldn’t hurt so
much that you refused to be mine.” His thumb traces my bottom lip, and I
tremble. “I thought if I could get the memory of your taste out of my head that
maybe I’d be okay with being your buddy.
He sneers the word, his face twisting in disgust, but when the sneer falls
away, it leaves raw need in its wake. “But I was wrong. I don’t want to be your
friend, because that means you’re only giving me part of yourself, and I am the
spoiled bastard you say I am. What was your word? Privileged?”
He dips his
head down and turns his face to the side, sweeping the tip of his nose over the
tip of mine. “I don’t want your friendship unless it comes with your body. And
I don’t want your body unless it comes with your heart.” He dips a little
farther and brushes his lips so softly against mine that I almost wonder if I’m
imagining it. Maybe he isn’t touching me at all. Maybe the sensation is nothing
more than air passing between our mouths.
He’s
chipping at the walls I keep erected around my heart. And what happens when
they’re gone? What happens when he sees me for who I really am?
“You say
you want to be my friend,” he says, “but friends don’t lie to each other. They
don’t hide their pasts.” His hand falls from my hair. I brace myself for his
retreat, but he doesn’t back away. Instead, he finds the hem of my dress and
slides up my thigh, then between my legs until he reaches my cotton panties.
“Is this it, then? Is this all you want from me?”
His
knuckles skim across my center, and I should stop him. Fuck. I should stop him. I know what he’s trying to do, what he’s
trying to say, and how I’ll feel when this is over. But all I can think is how
I feel right now. How it finally feels to have him this close—his heat, his
touch.
All I can
think is that if the rest of my life is going to be some sucky, lonely series
of if-onlys and what-ifs, dragging from one day to the next, I just want this
moment for as long as it can last. Maybe I’ll wrap it up and hold on to it.
Keep it for later when I can untuck it and examine the heat of his breath
against my neck or the gentle graze of his fingertips along the lace edge of my
panties.
He nips at
my ear with his teeth, and I moan. His breath has gone shallow, and I can feel
the tension building in him—that push and pull of wanting and knowing you
shouldn’t want. It’s easy for me to recognize, because I’ve lived in that limbo
for almost four years.

Macon by Marie James

 3.5 Stars

I’m a Marie James fan, so there was no doubt in my mind that I would be reading Macon. She has a real talent for creating a beautiful love story and she hasn’t disappointed me yet.

Once I started reading, I was quickly drawn into Macon and the characters inhabiting it. This felt like the first book in a series, so I hope that we’ll be seeing more from some of these characters (specifically Carson!). I did get a bit frustrated with the “I like you, but can’t be with you because you’re going to hurt me” thing that was the majority of their relationship. I really wanted Addi to just give Axton a chance and the more she didn’t do that, the more I wanted to throw my kindle.

Ultimately, this was a book that I finished rather quickly and was left wanting just a little bit more. I hope that Carson and/or Mandy get a book.

Tossing a middle finger to Macon, Georgia as I made my way
to Nashville was always the dream. Sing country music, go on tour, top the charts—with
my popularity growing every day, I was on my way.
But then a gust of wind blew up your skirt, and those white
cotton panties had me hooked. I didn’t know your name, and you turned down
every attempt I tried to throw your way. But I knew you were different, even
though you told me I was the same.
“Friends” is what you offered, and I played by your rules,
but, Adelaide Hatfield, you have to know, from that day, it was only you.
I just hope I can make you see how much you mean to me
before we both drown in the sorrow of what heartbreak can truly be.

Havoc by Laramie Briscoe (Moonshine Task Force #3)

 4 Stars

Havoc is the 3rd book of the Moonshine Task Force, and the best one yet! The relationship between Havoc & Leighton has been teased since the beginning, with the huge reveal in the last book that they were getting married seemingly out of the blue. In Havoc, we find out that their marriage is actually a “marriage of convenience” so that Holden can protect Leighton from her violent outlaw father.

The sexual tension between these two is great, and while their marriage looks normal from the outside, only these two know that behind closed doors they have been keeping a friendly, but platonic relationship. I really enjoyed watching Leighton and Havoc’s relationship grow and evolve into something “more”. I’m a sucker for protective, Alpha men, and Havoc delivers plus promises more with the next book, Ace.

Series: Moonshine Task Force #3
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2017
Blurb
When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a
lifetime…
Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe,
and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count
on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to
squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again –
let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my
protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama,
we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for
me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve
ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a
badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s
what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though
I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust,
hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

Trashy Foreplay by Gemma James (Trashy Affair #1)

3.5 Stars

I don’t even know what to say about this book. My feelings are so mixed up on it. I have been wanting to read Trashy Foreplay since I found out about it, and even though I’ve never read Gemma James I had really high hopes for it. While I was reading it, I couldn’t stop. I read the entire book in one day because it is a definite page-turner. But then the events at the end + the cliffhanger dampened my feelings on it a bit.

Chemistry and anticipation were the key factors in why I couldn’t tear my eyes from the page. Gemma James created great tension throughout the entirety of the book and I can see why she’s a bestselling author. I’ll probably try more of her work, but I’m not sure if I’ll be finishing the Trashy Affair series.

Blurb:

Never flirt with temptation.
Never lust after what I can’t have.
And never, under any circumstances, screw a married man again.

By the time this story is told, I’ll have failed at all three…

With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.

But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.

And the only man I want.

The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Though the subject matter deals with cheating, there are no innocent parties here. Book 1 in the Trashy Affair series.

TrashyForeplayTeaser2

Excerpt:

I go perfectly still as his arm snakes around me from behind. A warm palm flattens against my stomach, and the tips of his fingers inch beneath the waistband of my jeans. Everything south of that tempting hand flares to life, setting off a deep ache I know only he can fix.

Pulling me against his body, he leans down and whispers into my ear. “Watching him touch you is killing me.”

“Knowing you’re married is killing me.”

He curses under his breath. A hint of his woodsy cologne, along with the sweet aroma of bourbon fills my nostrils.

“Have you been drinking?”

“Maybe a little.” He whirls me around until we’re face-to-face, and my heart flutters in my throat as he tightens his arms around me. “Come upstairs with me.”

His proximity riots through me, the heat of his body sizzling all the way to my fucking toes. We fall into a lazy sway, dancing but not quite, and for a crazy second, I consider following him to the VIP area in the loft. As far as I can tell it’s empty unless a stray couple is hiding in the shadows in the very back. I doubt it though. The club is vibrating with restless energy as everyone crowds the first floor in anticipation of the concert.

“Look at me, Jules.”

His words jolt me to awareness, and I realize I’m staring at his chest. I curl my hands into fists at my sides, too tempted to run my palms down that broad expanse hiding underneath cotton. I bet it’s the softest material on the planet, but I won’t find out because I’m not going there.

Nope.

Not. Gonna. Do. It.

Because I have zero control right now, and we’re standing in the middle of a busy club with God-knows-who watching. And if I do touch him…I might not stop.

“Jules,” he murmurs. “Bring those gorgeous eyes up here.”

I lift my chin and dive headfirst into the fire of his gaze. His eyes are a smoldering, liquid steel. “Cash…please…”

“Please what?”

“Don’t make me want to give in. You’re married.” My voice cracks on that ugly word.

“My marriage is a sham.”

“Your marriage is your business.” I grip his arms, intending to push him away. But somewhere along the way, my brain gets its wires crossed, and I end up curling my fingers around his biceps. God, he’s built—solid man through and through.

“I disagree,” he says, dipping his head until our mouths linger a hairsbreadth from each other. “Everything about me is very much your business.”

“W-why?”

“Because I can’t feel this way about you without it being your business.”
