Good Reads Summary: I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.

Until he shows up.

Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.

His motives are unclear.

What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.

It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.

What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.

My-Thoughts

Five thousand stars!

This book. I was on Facebook Sunday and literally EVERYONE was speaking of this book! I had to get my hands on it. I had to check this out. It is my very first from the incredible K. Webster, and it will be the first of MANY! This author writes GOLD.

I will try to be as spoiler free as possible with my review. The book begins with a prologue that sinks its hooks into you and you are in it until the end. We meet Casey Doe. Casey is a young woman on the cusp of her 18th birthday. She has had a rough life, she is not your average normal teenager girl, far from it.

Enters Tyler Kline, possible knight in shining armor. He swoops in and saves Casey, but ends up giving her Torin.

“She stifles my breath sometimes. Simply from looking at her. Like just her presence sucks the breath right from my lungs.”

Torin is complicated, he is beautiful, he is smart. Casey is exactly what he needs, but will she accept him for who he is?

This beautiful story is filled a subject matter that doesn’t get written about enough. It is all about DIVERSITY. More and more authors need to add this into their writings. Why should love be with just a normal man and woman, two perfect humans with no problems. Sure, its fiction. Why can’t we have more flawed people in books? Because that is what we all are in real life any ways.

Holy Cannoli Batman. All I am saying is you need to check out this book and this author, because I did and I am so happy to have found her! On to the next review and it is another book by K. Webster and it’s on AMAZON’S BANNED LIST! Check it out next!

Review: Illicit by Ava Harrison

Genre: Forbidden love, contemporary romance

Pages: 415 (according to Amazon, however, it seems shorter than that)

Published: April 4th 2017

Summary: I was never supposed to see him again.
One night of passion with a complete stranger.
My last tryst before senior year.
But I was lost the moment his tempting lips were on my skin.
His intense touch on my body.

It should have ended there.

But he’s not a stranger.
He’s my history teacher.
And wanting him is against the rules.
Off limits.
Forbidden.

Illicit.

my-thoughts I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been doing reviews for awhile now so you all most likely know my favorites. I like taboo love and forbidden love. So this was right up my alley.

Honest to God, I didn’t read the synopsis or anything prior to reading this book. Going in, I had no clue it would contain forbidden love. Somehow, I was able to predict exactly what was going to happen from the get go and that’s why I can only give it 3.5 stars.

Carson and Lynn’s story is great though, just not that original. If you go through my past reads, there are several that follow the same lines as this one.

Lynn and her friends were hanging out at the Hamptons for one last hurrah prior to her senior year of high school. She was suppose to be having the time of her life, but instead she ends up alone at the beach.

Carson, also at the party, was just too bored with the scene. He wanted to start his life, he was tired of the partying. He, too, ended up alone on the beach, or so he thought.

When Lynn and Carson meet, they both were seeing stars. But a few days later, reality struck when Carson turns out to be first period, Mr. Blake. Lynn was shocked to say the least.

However forbidden as their romance was, they were unable to stay away from one another. Drawn together like a moth to a flame. They shared a lot of similarities when it came to their families.

Regardless of the predictable plot, it is still a good read.

Until I Fall Ebook Cover (1)

I received an advanced reader copy of this book for an honest review.

This story will captivate you! It did me for sure!

This isn’t your average love story. Aspen is a ER doctor with dreams of owning her own pediatric practice with her best friend. She had endured the loss of her fiance Michael. For eleven years, she had been treading water, just making it through life with her best friends. That is until Anderson came along

Anderson “Hawk” is not your average Joe. He is a military man who’s job is a secret to most people. He is strong and courageous, but caring for his mother who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

When these two come together, its magical. There will be joy and laughter and THERE WILL BE TEARS! I repeat tears. This book will teach you to live life and love fearlessly.

Goodreads Summary: *An Amato Brothers x Rixton Falls standalone crossover*

It was New Year’s Eve, and I should’ve been ringing in the night with cheap champagne and bad decisions at home in New York. Instead I found myself holed up in some hotel room in southern California.

But I wasn’t alone.

I was in the company of a fellow stranded traveler by the name of Cristiano. We spent one night together – forced into the same hotel room by the snowstorm that cancelled our flights and changed our lives.

His dimpled smile, panty-melting kisses, and charming wit were a temporary distraction from the chaos of the day. But as soon as morning broke, I set my sights on getting home. I rented a car, mapped out my 2,749 mile journey, and packed my bags.

Only Cristiano insisted on joining me. He needed to get home, too. His best friend was getting married on Saturday. And he refused to let me go it alone. It wasn’t safe, he said.

Trekking across country with an alluring stranger was certainly one of the more adventurous moments of my life. Falling for him was certainly one of the most daring. But uncovering his secrets? That was the most challenging. And the truth I learned . . . would shatter us both.

My Rating: 5 STARS!!

My Thoughts: Well…she did it again! Winter Renshaw is becoming one of my favorite authors. This book was beyond amazing. I devoured it. Honestly, nothing I can say in this review is going to give it justice.

It was snuck in at the end of Cold Hearted and I swear I have never been happier about it. This puts you through all of the feels.Daphne is in the airport and has just gotten the news that her flight was been cancelled because of this huge snow storm on the East Coast.

She is rushing how because her twin sister is getting ready to give birth and she has to be there. Cristiano is in the same dilemma. He is trying to get to New Jersey for his best friends wedding.

Daphne decides she is going to rent a car and drive the length from California to New York. Cristiano refuses to let her go alone, so he tags along.

This is apparently a cross over over two different series that Winter Renshaw has going. I went into this book unaware of both of the series, however now I am interested in checking them both out!

Check this one out! You don’t want to miss it.

Goodreads Summary: I wish I could say our meeting was happenstance.

I wish I could say we took one look and we just knew.

I wish I could say falling for him was the best thing that ever happened to me.

But none of that would be true.

Rhett Carson was as cold as the ice on which he skated. He was as calloused as the hands that shot the goals that won world titles. He was also damaged. And broken. And he didn’t know it, but I knew all about him.

I knew why he was so bitter and angry.

I knew why he was so coldhearted.

But I didn’t know why I allowed myself fall in love with him, and I didn’t know why I couldn’t stop… even when he told me to.

And that’s when everything changed.

My Rating: 5 Hockey Pucks

My Thoughts: I read this one back on February 5th and I rated this 5 stars.I have read a few other reads by this author that I rated 4 or 5 stars also so it wasn’t a shocker that this one would follow suit and be just as good.

This book had quite a bit of angst and heartbreak. Ayla has traveled to New York City to bury a brother she never even met. Bryce Renner was mad that his father had an affair and he seemed as though he didn’t want anything to do with her.

Following the funeral, Bryce’s teammates reached out to Ayla and offered to take her out for drinks. She agrees and learns the truth about Bryce’s death. The man who held stories and information about her brother, Rhett Carson, probably wasn’t going to speak to her because it seems that Bryce died with his fiancee.

The next day, she finds herself side by side with Mr. Rhett Carson after her college room stood her up. Soon they are making plans for no strings attached sex. Only Ayla knows that truth, that were strings attached before they even had their first kiss.

She hides the fact that Bryce is her brother because once they start their agreement, she feels she is into deep. When he finds out every thing goes to hell in a hand basket quick.

This book goes through all of the emotions. You get hooked easily in the beginning because you want to know more and more. Then you fall in love right along with Rhett and Ayla.

** Please note: there is NO underage sex in this book. This book is intended for readers 18 years and older **

** Portions of sales of this book are donated to various pet rescue organizations.**

My Rating: 5 I love you the most Stars!-

My Thoughts: This books was Amazing, yes with a capital A. Holy smokes. Not to mention I am pretty sure Toren is now on my book boyfriend list.

Kenzi is the daughter of two famous rock stars. Born to them when they were only teenagers. Her parent’s enlisted the help of their best friend Toren Grace to help take care of Kenzi. Toren agreed, after he is forced to leave the band to help watch his Goddaughter, while her parent’s are touring.

Toren and Kenzi seemed to have had a connect from the very beginning of her life. He was the only one she would stop crying for and he was the only person that could get her to go to sleep. So it was only natural that as she grew up, they would have a close bond.

Kenzi was on the edge of seventeen. She was nearing the close of her high school year when she starting seeing some things differently. Mainly, Uncle Tor.

The atmosphere of their relationship had started to change. But on the night of Kenzi’s prom, is when they both realized something was happening between them, with a near kiss. After that night the tension keeps building, until eventually it is unavoidable.

The author does an amazing job at building this relationship. You feel the tension, you feel the heartbreak and even the lust! I love it when you can feel how much two characters love and care for one another.

This book is not an easy one, but you know that there will be complications. The first one being Asher, Kenzi’s father. That was the number one concern when they acknowledged their feelings. Both  Toren and Kenzi were worried that Asher would hate the idea of the two of them. Mainly because she was basically raised calling him her Uncle. But to her, he never felt like family, but her best friend.

The number two concern was of course the age difference. Kenzi had just turned 18 when their romance begins and Torn was 32. They worried what other people would think or say. But in the end you just can help who you love. Who makes your heart flutter.

I am sure that a lot of people, when going in to the book ,will think this is a taboo topic. That is it forbidden and may it is. But once you start reading it and can feel the love that they have for one another. To get a glimpse of how their relationship has always been, you will accept it.

I’m telling you this, if you don’t read this book you will be missing out.By far one of my favorites! It is Kindle Unlimited!!

Goodreads Summary: My new neighbor is an online s*x advice vlogger — but she doesn’t know that I know

Out of curiosity, I checked out her videos. Who wouldn’t?
I didn’t count on being tempted by her silky voice or her full lips.
Too bad she’s off limits.
Being a single dad isn’t easy, and I have rules — no relationships, and no screwing close to home.
But when I become the subject of her posts, I can’t keep my hands off her any longer.
I have to teach her everything she got wrong in her videos.

*** A steamy STANDALONE full length contemporary romance novel with a hot, dominant bad boy alpha. No cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after.***

My Rating: 5 Webcam stars!

My Review: You know, this is another book that surprised me. I really liked the characters. Avery, the sex expert, Knox, the hottie mechanic and of course Piper the spunky teen that brought them together.

Knox is a single dad. He was left to raise his 13-year-old daughter, when his baby mama had plans to marry another man. He somehow figured it out on his own. But when Avery moves in next door, she has his reevaluation his number one rule. No dating!

At first he was afraid that she would be a bad influence on his daughter,  when in return he realized, he needed her help because he didn’t know anything about bras and periods that his budding daughter was in much need of.

But when attraction became too much, they came to an agreement, only sex. And they had to keep it a secret. Until they both discover it is much more than just sex.

If you know me, you know this is a Kindle Unlimited. Hey, I am cheap! This was also my first by this author. I will definitely be on the look out for more from her! Be sure to check out Lip Service!

Review: Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, NA, Rom Com

Pages: 275

Released: February 8th 2012

Goodreads Summary:   Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn’t know. “My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn.”

When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she’s both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places.

My Rating: 5 HUMMINGBIRD STARS 

My Review: Oh Lingus…I loved him so much. I couldn’t imagine being in the friend zone with a porn star. Especially a hot one. You know, you read about teachers, actors and rock stars. Why not porn stars? Afterall, are they not just normal people off camera?

Tristan was the Clark Kent of porn. He hid his identity behind glasses and hair dye and an alias. When off camera, he was a law student, a nerd even, but he was lonely. He just wanted someone to see him for would he truly was. Kat did just that.

Although, she felt an attraction to him instantly, she agreed to just be friends with him. She did just that. She nurses him back to health when he is sick. He helps her clean up after an embarrassing mishap. Thank God, they are just friends…right?

When he leaves to go shoot more movies, she finds herself saddened by the thought of him being it other woman. She tries to forget about her feelings and be a friend to Tristan when he returns.

She could never be in a relationship with him, right? There would be too much jealousy involved when he had to do his “job” on-screen. She couldn’t actually be with someone how has sex with other people for a living..could she?

I really liked this one, believe it or not. It was a quick read for me. I started and finished it in one afternoon. I loved the banter between Kat and Tristan. You can almost feel the sexual tension while reading this during a few scenes. And no don’t get freaked out thinking there are a lot of porn scenes. This story is told through the eyes of Kat.

It is on KU, check it out!

Shameless by Lex Martin

Shameless by Lex Martin

Genre: Romance, Contemporary Romance

Pages: 394

Links: Amazon | Goodreads | Barnes & Noble

Published: April 26th 2016

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Goodreads Summary: What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.

Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.

I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

Katherine…

When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me.

What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.

I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

* Author’s note: Due to mature situations and sexual content, Shameless is recommended for readers 18+.

My Review:

When tragedy stuck in Brady’s family, he was left to take care of his family’s funeral and their farm. When he arrives in Texas, he gets more than what he bargained for.

He meets Katherine, who is holding a baby. A baby he thought belonged to her, but only the child turns out to be his niece, whom everyone thought was dead. When he learns that he has inherited the farm and has got full custody of the baby, he thinks he is in over his head. But with the help of Katherine, the neighbors, a crazy raccoon and a bunch of orphaned animals, he some how makes it work.

I really loved this book. It did vaguely remind me of the movie Life as We Know It, but don’t worry, it’s totally different. The characters were lovable and if you like tatted guys, Brady is your man…not to mention he is a tattoo artist. It does alternate POV, which I like most of the time. There is adult content so beaware of that if you are going to read it.

This was my very first Lex Martin book, so I was unaware that this book is actually a spin off from another book hers. Actually it may be a series. Overall, I have to say it is a good read if you are into young adult romance. Check it out!
