Review: Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys

Summary: Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.

I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.

At least it was.

Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.

In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?

I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed

my-thoughts

First of all, let’s take another look at that beautiful cover.

Sweet Spot Ebook Cover

Just take a second and appreciate that ‘V’…AND now we can move forward. 🙂

I received this ARC in return for an honest review and here it is!

Say hello to my new book boyfriend, Lukas Hendricks. Lukas, Lukas, Lukas. Swoon. Anyways! I really liked this book.

In it you meet Lia. Lia has had a rocky past. After a bad break up, it sends Lia to celibacy, well kinda. She had no interest in sex or dating for three years. That is until Lukas shows up at her front door when she just so happens to be naked.

One look at him had her hot and bothered and needing release! She just couldn’t get him off her mind. She goes so far as going out with another man to potentially have sex with him just to get Lukas off of her mind. Did it work? Uhm, no.

Lukas, a rich brooding man, a player. He was never really one to settle or even have a repeat night of passion with his woman, until he meets Lia. Lia is just different. She brings out things in him that he didn’t realize him had. She even brought out the truth.

It was a great story and its Kindle Unlimited, I would consider this a must read!

Synopsis:

Dear Reader,

Isabelle “Belle” March is a nobody. A nothing. A Peasant. No one even knew who she was until one of the Royals, Adam “Beast” Castle, decided she was hot enough to ignore the hierarchy at our school—a hierarchy I myself set in place. I run this school, and the Upper East Side, too. Here at H.E.A., we stick to a strict social status, something most of Manhattan does, too. So when Beast starts dating Belle? All hell breaks loose.

Royals shouldn’t date Peasants, and you’re about to see why.

Oh, and please don’t buy this thinking you know how this story is going to end. You know nothing. Nobody here at H.E.A. plays by the rules, or follows the books. The only one who knows anything around here is me…

And I’m not telling anyone a thing.

XOXO,
Elsa

Excerpt:

Belle (A Tangled Royals Book #1)

Text Copyright © 2017 Anonymous Girls

All Rights Reserved

 

Adam was a force of nature when he was out there on the field. There was something almost animalistic in the way he reared his arm back, calculated the risks, and some how managed to fire off a perfect shot toward the receiver—more often than not, Prescott—every single time. Every time his passes were caught, I waited for him to show some sign of his usual cockiness or even excitement, but he just nodded, slapped his hands together, and did it again. He was so grave, so focused, and it was clear he took his duties as quarterback very seriously.
Whereas Prescott danced. Literally. I’d laughed along with the rest of the crowd as he’d done his thing, but Beast had been too busy talking to his coach as the defensive lineup trailed onto the field to see it. That’s how the whole game had gone.
Beast doing his thing, Prescott doing his, and Ella and the Royals all cheering them along with flips, bounces, and pyramids.
They cheered now, something about the Royals being undefeatable, and the W.W.H. team going home crying, and the crowd went wild when Ella was flipped in the air and caught by Elsa, Anna, and Tianna. Prescott grinned from the bench and blew a kiss at Ella, who beamed, her cheeks red.
Something had changed between them since last night, and they seemed… happy. Prescott no longer seemed like he was in a prison sentence without parole, and even Ella had been smiling and joking with her friends while the boys played.
I looked at Adam. He watched the girls, too. His gaze was narrow on them, almost like he was annoyed at something, but then he shrugged and turned back to me. When he saw me watching, he grinned, lifted a hand, and waved. Smiling, I immediately waved back. He pressed his hand to his heart, then slammed his helmet back over his head.
Snow sighed beside me. “God, can you believe he’s yours?”

 

“Not really,” I admitted, tugging my slouchy hat lower. “He’s so… so…”
“Beastly.”

Strawberry Summer by Melissa Brayden

Genre: Romance, LGBT

Pages: 264

Published Date: April 1st 2017

Summary: Just because you’re through with your past, doesn’t mean it’s through with you.

Margaret Beringer didn’t have an easy adolescence. She hated her name, was less than popular in school, and was always cast aside as a “farm kid.” However, with the arrival of Courtney Carrington, Margaret’s youth sparked into color. Courtney was smart, beautiful, and put together—everything Margaret wasn’t. Who would have imagined that they’d fit together so perfectly?

But first loves can scar.

Margaret hasn’t seen Courtney in years and that’s for the best. But when Courtney loses her father and returns to Tanner Peak to take control of the family store, Margaret comes face-to-face with her past and the woman she’s tried desperately to forget. The fact that Courtney has grown up more beautiful than ever certainly doesn’t help matters.

My Rating: 5 Strawberry Stars

my-thoughts

I received this as an ARC for an honest review.

Strawberry Summer by Melissa Brayden is a mixture of a coming of age story to a story about adults trying to get their lives together.

Margaret or Maggie, has lived in the same small town her whole life on her families strawberry farm. A small town with all the same faces, until one day a beautiful blonde walks through her classroom door, right as she is giving a speech on none other than President Abraham Lincoln.

Courtney Carrington is a department store heiress from Chicago with Tanner Peak roots as it happens to be were her father grew up and her grandmother still lives today. Her father’s dream was to have a department store in his hometown, so they uproot and move for the opening of the store.

When Courtney and Maggie lay eyes on each other it is instant chemistry. However, they are both so difference from each other.

When tragedy strikes, they find it hard to keep themselves together and struggle. Five years later, they meet again and what happens is quite wonderful.

Description

* * * Since the topic of college hazing could be a trigger for some, please consider this a warning as this may not be a book you’d be comfortable reading. * * *

Fizzbo is used to taking care of people. He’s the one in charge of the personal and professional security needs for both world-famous rock bands, Ivory Tower and Black Ice. Having their backs is what he does best, and he takes pride in that, both on and off the job. When he’s called into action to save the man he loves, all of his skills are put to the test. Suddenly, he isn’t so sure his training will be enough, but saving Kensey is personal, and he’s willing do anything to keep him safe.

Kensey Pride is the man who rocked Fizzbo’s world when they met during the European tour with Ivory Tower and Black Ice. Kensey’s passion for his job, making people look and feel beautiful in their own skin, is something he lacks in his own life until the magnetism of a certain security guard comes along and breaks down the walls he’s built around his heart to keep him safe. For the first time in his life, Kensey discovers he likes who he sees looking back at him in the mirror.

Without the safety of those walls and his heart left unprotected, Kensey becomes an easy target for those who can’t let go of the past. Will Fizzbo’s strength and love be enough to bring Kensey home, or will old truths be too much for the guard to handle?

FIZZBO MUSCLE TEASER COMPRESSED

Excerpt

“Come on, old man. I’ll show you how it’s done,” Kensey said.

         Fizzbo froze in place, his feet sinking into the soft sand. “Whoa, who the fuck are you calling an old man?”

         Kensey arched one thin brow. “Did I hit a nerve with that comment?”

         “Does my age really bother you?” Fizzbo asked with his hands on his hips.

         Kensey stepped back to Fizzbo and held his steady gaze. “Nope. It doesn’t bother me in the least,” he answered with conviction. “I kind of like that you’re an . . . older, more mature man.”

         “Jesus, how fucking old do you think I am?”

         “I don’t know, maybe . . . forty?” Kensey dropped his gaze to the sand to try and hide his smile.

         “What the actual fuck?” Fizzbo nearly roared the words. “Forty? Are you fucking joking right now? Do I really look forty to you?”           He spit the words out like he were describing some kind of terminal disease.

         Kensey finally lost control of the laugh he was holding back and let it fly. “I’m busting your balls!” he exclaimed, then he bent over holding onto his thighs as his shoulders continued to quake from the humor he saw in the situation.

         “Hey, I’m being serious here,” Fizzbo admonished. “How old do you really think I am? Tell me. I want to know.”

         Kensey did his best to pull himself together and stood upright to face him. His eyes canvassed Fizzbo’s face and body, slowly skimming over every ridge of muscle, the thick column of his throat, and that chiseled jawline that Kensey imagined dragging his tongue across and feeling the scrap of whiskers against it. He could feel his cock beginning to take notice of the situation, hardening faster than he could stop it from happening.

         “Thirty-five,” Kensey finally guessed after pretending to carefully calculate his answer.

         Fizzbo seemed to deflate a bit after that and finally a grin appeared on his face. “I’m thirty-six,” he offered. “Is that too old for you?”

         Kensey shook his head. “Nope, I think you’re okay. I’m twenty-six and you fall just under the geezer threshold, so we’re good. I can do this and not have to worry about being arrested for elder abuse.”

         Fizzbo lunged for Kensey and threw him over his shoulders in a fireman’s carry before Kensey had a chance to protest. “You fucking smart ass,” he scolded. “You’ll pay for that last remark.”

         “Hmmm, is that a promise?”

         “Don’t tempt me, you little whipper-snapper,” Fizzbo chuckled as he began to haul Kensey back towards his house. “I’m happy to put you over my knee and punish you for that smart mouth of yours.”

         Kensey bounced on Fizzbo’s broad shoulders with each step he took in the sand. “Okay, now you’re just being a cruel tease!”

         “A tease is someone who doesn’t follow through,” Fizzbo said. “Something else you should know about me, Kens, I always follow through–with promises and threats.”

         Kensey slumped against Fizzbo’s broad shoulders and sighed loudly. “Fuckkkk.”

         “You’ve met your match with me,” Fizzbo laughed. “The sooner you embrace that truth, the better off you’ll be at handling me.”

Why Do I Read So Much?

my-thoughtsYou know, there are people out there that ask me this. “Why do you read so much?” Honestly, my question is why don’t YOU?

In my opinion books are works of art. Art that needs to be experienced. Someone has taken the letters of the alphabet and turned them in to pages and pages of life. They create stories of love and happiness, of travels and so much more. Authors form their works of art for people to enjoy, not for books to just to sit on a shelf in a library.

I cherish my good reads and want to share them with the world, as they should be enjoyed!

I also think that reading is a way to travel while sitting still. You go to different states, countries, galaxies even. You meet characters you love, some you hate and some you love to hate.

My life isn’t perfect, there are days that I just can’t take the real world outside of the pages of my book. Having anxiety and depression and trying live a “normal” life sometimes leaves you exhausted. My way of recovery is books. Reading takes my mind off of my fears, worries, sadness.

So that’s why I read. I read to admire, enjoy, to escape, to find happiness.

•☆.•*´¨`*••♥EXCERPT♥••*´¨`*•.☆•


I check myself out in front of the mirror, making sure my hair looks okay. Wait, why the hell am I checking my hair?

I’m nervous. I feel like I did the night of my prom. Butterflies in my stomach and sweaty palms as I get ready for what is to be one of the biggest nights of my life. So I may be overreacting, but for me, this is a big step.

“You can do this,” I tell myself, taking one last look in the mirror and walking out of my place to my SUV.

The drive to the compound feels like it goes by in seconds and before I know it, I’m outside Kitty’s cottage and lifting my hand to knock on her door.

“One sec!” she shouts.

I clear my throat, shuffle on the spot and then look on either side of me.

When I came to the compound earlier, I came under the pretense to talk to Ty, but both he and I knew that I was only there to see Kitty. Apparently, we weren’t as incognito as we thought and he knew all along.

He told me that he knew I hadn’t been ready to talk about it yet, that he knew I’d tell him when I was good and ready. I thought he wouldn’t be happy about it, me doing what I’ve done to Kitty but the look in his eyes as he was sitting across from me told me that he understood, at least, as much as he could.

When I walked past the kitchen in the warehouse and saw her standing there, I knew that it was time. Time to let the past go and live in the moment, and for the future.

The sound of the door opening gains my attention and I look to Kitty, my breath catching in my throat. My eyes track her from head to toe, taking in her curves in the green, off the shoulder dress that flows over her body perfectly and ends just above her knees. Her creamy legs on full display and ending on those black stiletto’s, and her lavender hair flowing over her shoulders in soft, enticing curls.

“Hey,” she whispers.

“Hey.”

I stand there, not knowing what to say or do. She’s completely captivated me. I’ve never seen her dressed like this; all she wears are her work clothes or pajamas, or when I’m around, preferably nothing.

“Charlie? Are we going?”

“Huh? Ah, yeah.” I grip the back of my neck, trying to get ahold of myself. “Let’s go.”

I spin around and walk as fast as I can to my SUV, pressing the fob and pulling the driver’s door open.

“Ahem.”

“Oh, shit, sorry.” I jog around to the other side and open up the door, closing it when she’s safely inside.

“Charlie?” she asks as I start the engine.

“Yeah?”

She places her hand on my forearm, squeezing gently. “Calm down, it’s just me.”

It’s just her. Just. Her.

I take a deep breath and close my eyes, opening them back up after a couple of seconds and pulling her hand off my arm, bringing it to my lips and kissing her palm.

“Sorry, I’m just—”

“Nervous.” She smiles.

“Yeah.” I blow out an audible breath and let her hand go, grinning and then driving out of there.

Addiction ~ NOUN

The fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance or activity.


I’m a strong woman.

Or at least, I think I am. I used to be so sure about that.

I trained everyday, making sure I could take down anyone that I needed to. Mixed martial arts, kickboxing, self-defense, karate. You name it, I’ve done it.

I prided myself on being not only physically strong but mentally too. I knew mind games, I knew how to put on a front.

I may be small in size but I like to think of myself as a pocket rocket.

Quick thinking, fast reflexes.

When I was younger, I was known as the delicate little flower, the person people needed to protect, to not let get hurt.

I hated it.

I didn’t want someone who was paid to protect me, I wanted to be able to do that shit myself and that started with leaving home at eighteen with only a couple of hundred bucks and a bag full of clothes on my back to get away from my father.

But I never expected to meet him along the way.

The person whose eyes were full of sadness and heartbreak. The person who turned my world upside down and my heart inside out.

The problem? He only wanted someone to warm his bed at night, and that was okay for a while. Until I wanted more.

Competing with someone who didn’t exist anymore was impossible, and that’s exactly what I was doing when it came to him.

There was a time when I thought I could pull him out of the darkness but now I know that won’t happen, not while I’m slipping into that darkness myself and especially not while I’m in a love affair with those pretty little pills.

They gave me relief, calmed my body and soul, all the while destroying everything that I worked to become and all that I am.

Now? Now it’s just me and them.

“Your life can change in an instant”~ Madden

I never thought a night out could change everything. All I wanted was to dance, drink, maybe take a cute guy home for a night of fun. I met the guy, but the night ended as a nightmare. Screams, and blood, and tragedy haunt my dreams. I’m alive and I owe it all to the gorgeous marine who refused to leave me for dead. But how can I start a new relationship when I’m not even sure who I am anymore?

“I’ll always save you” ~Thane
After a long work week all I wanted was to let my hair down and to meet a nice guy. When I laid eyes on the gorgeous, tattooed man at the bar, I had to have him. I never would have thought the night could end in such horror. I saved his life, and I swear I’ll save him as many times as I have to. Even if it means saving him from himself.

After all, it makes her feel like she’s making a difference when she couldn’t so long ago.

She now lives in Colorado working for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house.

ABOUT A STAR TO STEER HER BY

 

I’m scarred. Broken. I’ll never be the same.

But I will take this journey.

Ever since my last dive ended in bloodshed, I’ve been terrified to go back into the water. But the opportunity to spend a semester at sea is too good to pass up. I need to get my life back.

I never expected to love it this much. And I never expected Tristan MacDougall.

Rugged, strong, and with demons of his own, Tristan helps me find the courage I thought I had lost and heals me with every stolen moment we share. But the rules of the ship mean we can’t be together.

When a dive excursion goes terribly wrong, our only hope for survival is each other.

EXCERPT:

He held my hand as we glided slowly around the reef. The euphoria I felt at actually getting under the water faded as I squinted into the distant blue haze, on constant lookout for…anything that might be lurking out there. It was utterly silent, except for the Darth Vader-like sound of our breathing. That was one of the things I’d always loved best about scuba diving, the silence of it. For a short time, I could leave behind the noise of the world above and get lost in the alien world beneath the sea. I’d missed it so much.

My fear began to slip away. The reef was a huge mass of life and motion. Tiny yellow fish nibbled on purple sponges, vividly colored parrotfish pecked at coral with their sharp beaks, blue-and-yellow angelfish swam lazily between sea fans. None of them seemed disturbed by our presence. They just went about their business.

I’d almost forgotten Tristan was there until he tapped my arm and pointed to a big hole in the coral, where a slimy green head emerged on a sinuous neck. It was a moray eel. It stared at us, its mouth opening and closing to reveal glimpses of curved, needle-thin teeth. Novice divers tended to be afraid of them because their teeth looked wicked sharp. But I’d been around them enough to know that they opened and closed their mouths to breathe, not to be aggressive (usually), and I watched it for a moment, unafraid.

We continued exploring, my eyes remembering how to see beyond the camouflage to find the animal. A crusty “rock” sitting on the bottom was a scorpionfish. A mound of sand turned out to be a flounder. I still searched the blue waters around us, but less frequently than before. I even let go of Tristan’s hand.

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a flash of silver. My heart started to pound. Take it easy, it’s probably a barracuda.

No, it wasn’t. Barracuda usually just hovered motionless in the water, seemingly menacing with their protruding teeth, but generally harmless to humans. This was moving quickly. And it was big. Where’d it go? I spun around.

There it was again, lurking just at the edge of my vision. Oh God, not again! Hiss-whoosh, hiss-whoosh. My breath came faster and faster.

I needed to get out of there.

ABOUT BETH ANNE MILLER

Beth Anne Miller’s first book, written in elementary school, was bound in pink fabric and was about—what else?—a girl and her horse. She soon began cheating on horses with the sea, becoming an open water scuba diver at age 14. That love of the sea led her to a college semester aboard a schooner. She returned with fond memories of the exhilaration of being on a ship under full sail, less fond memories of hurling over the leeward rail on a daily basis, and a sailing bug she couldn’t quite shake.

In addition to horses and the sea, she has a fascination for all things Scottish (including, but not limited to, men in kilts), which she explored with her first novel, INTO THE SCOTTISH MIST (The Wild Rose Press, 2011), and carried into her new novel, A STAR TO STEER HER BY (Entangled Embrace, March 2017). A native New Yorker, Beth Anne works in the publishing industry and is always looking ahead to her next voyage, whether a short one on a dive boat or whale watch, or, with luck, a longer one on a tall ship.
