Exp1re (Book 1)

 

 

Numbers.
They complete me.
Nothing makes sense without them, the building blocks of logic.
A math teacher by day, a statistics doctorate student at night, my obsession to solve problems is constantly fed.
I’m exactly where I want to be in life, no unknown variables or unsolved formulas.
Until I meet her.
Lyra.
The woman beyond the numbers.
How can I stay away, when everything about her draws me in?
But how can I fall in love, when she won’t promise me eternity?

~ 5 To Jupiter and Back Stars ~

Holy WOW!!! That’s really all I can say about Etern1ty. What a perfect ending for Tavian and Lyra’s story.

I have been waiting to read this book since I finished reading Exp1re. This story was everything I was hoping for and even more than I expected. I was completely engrossed in this book and in Tavian and Lyra’s lives.

Etern1ty starts off right where Exp1re ends. There is no time loss and I absolutely loved that. I don’t want to say much about this story because this is one you will want to experience for yourself. I thought the flow and pace of this story was perfect and everything just worked well. This book is NOT a standalone novel. You HAVE to read Exp1re first before reading this book. You will be lost if you try to read this book on it’s own. Again Etern1ty is told from Dual POV and I think that was the perfect way to tell this story.

The storyline to this duet is unlike anything I have read before and I absolutely love that. I am always looking for that romance novel that is different from what is already out there. Well this one is definitely that!!!! This story was both engrossing and intriguing. I didn’t want to put the book down once I started reading it. I kept slowing my reading pace just because I didn’t want this story to end. I know Tavian and Lyra’s story will live in my mind for some time to come. Their story about not taking anything for granted and living life to it’s fullest because you never know how much time we have, struck something in me!! CARPE DIEM!!!!

I could truly go on and on about this book and Exp1re but I don’t want to slip and spoil it for anyone, so this review is going to be short. Just know you are going to want to read this book/duet!!!! This story will have you on the edge of your seat and you will be surprised by the twist and turns it takes.

I know this review really doesn’t do this book justice, so let me just say READ THIS BOOK!!!! You won’t be sorry.

 

 

 

 

 


“Annie, wait,” I blurt, holding my hand up in the air. “We haven’t had a minute alone since I got home. I told you I needed to talk to you tonight.”
She ignores my protests and buries her face into my lower abdomen, trailing her freshly glossed lips down the thin line of hair that travels from my belly button and disappears beneath the flannel cotton of my pajama pants. “We have the rest of our lives to talk. I haven’t had you inside me in way too long, and I’m not waiting any longer.” Her teeth clasp around the waistband and she drags the pants down far enough to reveal my goods. She frowns at the sight of my flaccid, clearly unaroused shaft, and then glances up at me, her brow wrinkled with confusion. “You didn’t miss your fiancée?”
The way she says that word—the same way she’s said it all evening long, at every chance she could get—grates on my nerves for a reason I’m not even sure of. She hasn’t done anything wrong exactly, but she expects me to be the same man I was when I left here a couple of weeks ago—the man who was comfortable and content in his life and relationship, happy even.
I’m no longer that man. Not even close.
Meeting Lyra changed everything; my life’s formula completely flipped around. She’s the answer I didn’t know I was searching for. And now I’ve come home to a huge mess. But I couldn’t bear to devastate my mom. Not again.
And as far as Annie… I am enough of a gentleman not to embarrass her in front of all our friends, coworkers, and family members. I may have realized I don’t love her like I thought I did, and I know telling her that is going to cause enough pain; she surely doesn’t deserve to be humiliated on top of that.
“I did miss you,” I insist as I reach down and yank my pajamas back up over my hips, prompting the crease in her forehead to deepen, “but we need to talk. I have things I have to tell you about my trip.”
I pause to wet my cracking lips with a nervous swipe of my tongue. The movement draws her worried gaze away from mine and down to my mouth, and then she quickly crawls up the length of my body and kisses me. Her tongue plunges deep and determined, her chest pressed flush against mine. She smells like desperation and tastes like regret.
“Whatever happened while you were there,” she whispers against my lips in between kisses, “it’s okay. I understand. Just leave it there, in the past. We can focus on the future. With each other. Your wild oats have now been sown.”
Her mouth returns to mine as her hand wedges between our bodies and slips inside my waistband, fingers stroking my shaft feverishly, frantic for a reaction. My cock, the Judas bastard, responds despite my brain’s opposition. And that’s when I know what I have to do.

Behind the Bars Wrap

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: December 7th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

ADORED by Georgia Cates

My name is Judd Mathews and I have it all: money, good looks, success. Fans buy my music and scream my name. My life is a charmed one… until my world is turned onto its head by a girl. Scarlett Mathews.

A baby girl.

My newborn daughter.

Her mother is gone, and she has no one in this world but me. This delicate little girl couldn’t have been born to a more unsuitable father… until Leighton Mitchell opens my eyes and makes me see things differently.

Leighton is not my typical kind of woman. She does not get drunk on whiskey or chase country music stars for a chance at a one-night stand on a tour bus. She’s nurturing, wholesome, respectable… and easily the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. She loves my daughter. Adores her. And that makes it very easy to see that she belongs in Scarlett’s life. And mine.

~ 5 Adoring Stars ~

Adore is the perfect title for this novella by Georgia Cates because I absolutely ADORED this story.

Adore is a standalone novella in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted World and is told in Dual POV. This was a sweet and sexy single dad rock star romance. It had a touch of the forbidden love story because Leighton is hired by Judd to be his newborn baby’s nanny. The connection to Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Series is that this story takes place in Mason Texas and the Hero of the story is Gunner’s cousin. I loved that we got to see Gunner again in this story. I thought this was a wonderful addition to this Kindle World.

You will get swept up into this story and these characters lives. I will say that when I finished this story I wanted more. I wish this would’ve been a full length novel because I couldn’t get enough of Leighton and Judd.

As with all of these novellas in this Kindle World you don’t have to read any other book to enjoy each of them.

In Adored we follow Judd and Leighton. Judd is a country music superstar, who just had his world turned upside down, when he found out he is a father. Leighton is a NICU nurse who has been taking care of Scarlett since she was born early. Judd realizing that he isn’t prepared or ready to be a father, turns to Leighton for help. What he didn’t realize is the connection he has to Leighton. Will Leighton fall for Judd?? Can these two have a HEA?? Read this sweet and swoony romance to find out.

I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who loves Georgia Cates books. Also if you love a rock star romance this is one to check out, because you will fall in love with all the characters and there isn’t a lot of excess drama. This novella will leave you with a smile on your face.

~ 5 I Found You Stars ~

What a little GEM this novella was!!! I was totally swept away with Found by Kristin Mayer.

For being a novella, this story packed a punch. It was a sweet second chance romance but had a little suspenseful element added to keep you turning the pages. This book will only take you a couple of hours to read, but it lacked for nothing.

Found by Kristin Mayer is a novella that is in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Kindle World. A group of various authors who have written a story that encompasses Kelly’s Wanted Series. This story takes place in Fredericksburg Texas where Kelly’s original Wanted cast of characters are from. I loved how those characters were incorporated into this story. It was great seeing them again. Kristin’s story felt like it totally belonged in this series.

Found is a standalone novella told in Dual POV. You don’t have to read the Wanted Series first to enjoy this book. It is completely it’s own story. But if you have read the Wanted Series then you will be able to appreciate the connection that is made.

In this story we follow Austin and Scarlette. Austin and Scarlette met a year ago when he was on furlough from the Marines for three days and had a world wind romance, but at the end of the three days he left with no word and left Scarlette broken hearted. Now a year later and Scarlette is trying to move on with her life after her mom’s recent death. Which brings her to Fredericksburg and to the Mathew’s Ranch. What she wasn’t expecting was to run into Austin in a local bar. Will Scarlette be able to forgive Austin for leaving her broken hearted?? Can these two have a HEA?? What happens when Austin’s past meets his present?? Read this charming novella to find out.

I loved see all the Wanted characters again. Reading this book made it feel like I was coming home. Now I wanted to reread the Wanted Series again.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Kristin Mayer’s books, a fan of The Wanted Series, or just loves a sweet and sexy second chance romance with a swoony cowboy as the Hero.

 

 

 

 

City Girl’s Cowboy by Kahlen Aymes

He might desire her, but he’ll be damned if he’ll ever let her hurt him again.

Thea Andreas left behind her cowboy boots, the dusty trails of Texas, and first love, River King for the bright lights and big city dreams of the Big Apple and a big-time modeling career.

When Thea inherits part of her great Uncle Leonard’s sprawling ranch, she goes back to settle the estate, but gets more than she bargained for when the majority owner refuses to buy her out, and no one else will either. See, the locals know the story, and their loyalty is clear.

River is cockier and sexier than ever and it’s not easy to resist when he makes it clear he’d be more than happy to oblige her with a roll in the hay, for old time’s sake. He’s the catch of the county and every single woman within a hundred miles wants him, rousing old feelings of jealousy and pain. What’s worse, River seems to revel in making her suffer.

The beauty of the ranch where she grew up and and hauntingly intense memories of their first love might convince her to stay, but even if she wanted to give up her career and move back to Texas, it won’t matter if River can’t forgive her for chasing her dream.

~ 3.5 Stars ~

The City Girl’s Cowboy is the novella written by Kahlen Aymes in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Kindle World. This was the shortest one I have read. It really will only take you about an hour to read the book.

I thought this story was an enjoyable one but one that didn’t WOW me. I enjoyed that we got to the heart of the storyline right away, but I felt it was missing something. The story felt kind of stilted or jumpy. It didn’t flow as well as I had hoped it would. I also thought the ending was kind of abrupt. I was hoping for one more chapter or an epilogue to finish out River and Thea’s story.

City Girl’s Cowboy is a second chance romance told in Dual POV. I thought it was a good addition to this Kindle World. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Kahlen Aymes. She added her normal flare to the story that we come to expect when picking up one of her books. This was a romance filled with some angst and drama. It will have your emotions going up and down like a roller coaster.

In this novella we follow River and Thea’s story. Thea went off to NYC to become a famous model and left River behind when she did. Now she is back in Mason for her Uncle’s funeral and runs into River. To say things don’t go smoothly is an understatement. Can River forgive Thea for leaving him?? Will Thea choose to stay in Mason now?? Can they get their HEA?? Read this story to find out.

I enjoyed that we got to see some of the Wanted crew in this book.

So if you are looking for that second chance romance that will only take a short time to enjoy, then this is the novella for you.

~ 4 Second Time Around Stars ~

Another Round Of Whiskey is the third novella I have read in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Kindle World.

I have to be honest and say that I did enjoy this story, but it isn’t my favorite of the ones I have read so far. I didn’t feel the connection to the Wanted Series like I have with the other reads. I think my biggest thing was that I didn’t feel that swoony cowboy connection with Landon.

I really had a hard time liking Landon for most of the read. I understood where he was coming from and why he was hurt and it was hard for him to trust Ashley, but his character really made it hard for me to like him. And when he finally did turn around it was already too late for me.

Now don’t get me wrong I did enjoy this story and I thought it was a good second chance romance. I also thought it is a good addition to this Kindle World. Just because I didn’t love it doesn’t mean others won’t. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a second chance romance or if you are a fan of S Moose’s books.

Like I said this is a standalone second chance romance between Landon and Ashley. Landon and Ashley have known each other their entire life and have been dating for many years, when Ashley decides she wants to follow her dreams and go to NYC and become famous. Landon being the supportive boyfriend tells her to follow her dreams and that he will be here waiting for her when she comes back. Fast forward 7 years and Ashley is back and determined to win back Landon’s heart and trust. Will Landon be able to forgive Ashley?? Can they get their HEA after all this time?? Read this angst and drama filled romance to get those answers.

I did really enjoy seeing how Gunner, Jeff, Ellie and Ari played into this story. It’s always nice reconnecting with past characters. No you don’t have to read the Wanted Series to enjoy this story.

If you are a fan of an angst filled second chance romance then this a story you should read!!

~ 5 Make Me A Cowboy Stars ~

Kenzie Rose is a new author to me and I have to say I really enjoyed what I read. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

My Unexpected Cowboy was a wonderful opposites attract romance. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters and the storyline. This is another novella in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Kindle World and this was another great addition.

My Unexpected Cowboy is a standalone novella that won’t take but a couple hours to read. It is told in Dual POV. I thought the story flowed well and the pace was perfect. Even though it is a novella length story, I didn’t feel anything missing. I thought we got just enough of everything to make this story very satisfying!!!!

In this story we meet Kennedy and Jeremy. Kennedy owns a ranch in Mason, TX that she inherited from her grandpa. She is determined to continue on with their legacy. Jeremy is a Sound Engineer in the music business. Kennedy is taking her sister to college in Nashville when she wins a contest to record a CD demo. This is where she meets Jeremy and the sparks fly!!! Kennedy having no interest in the music business heads back home back to the ranch. Jeremy is convinced that Kennedy could be the next big music star and heads to Texas to bring her back. Can Jeremy convince Kennedy to try her hand at singing?? Will Kennedy be able to turn the city boy into a real cowboy? Can these two opposites find their HEA?? Read this novella to find out.

I loved that we got to see Ari and Jeff in this story. All the others I have read focused on Gunner and Ellie, so it was nice to see another favorite couple of mine play into one of these stories.

I thought Jeremy was completely swoon worthy and Kennedy was a strong and feisty heroine. I really enjoyed both of these characters and wouldn’t mind seeing more of them in the future.

I would recommend this opposites attract romance story to everyone. It is a sweet and sexy romance without a lot of excess drama!!!

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING I NEED by Ellie Wade

Leni Turner

I learned very young that love has the power to destroy us, and so I’ve stayed clear, vowing to never lose myself to love another. I escaped Texas and broke free from the life that tried to destroy me. Yet here I am, five years later, my dreams shattered, on a bus back to the place I never wanted to be.

Liam Moore

I spend my days on the ranch, doing what I love, in my favorite place on Earth. After years without contact, I’m startled to find her green eyes staring back at me, making me realize how much I’ve missed her. She doesn’t want me in her life, and yet now that she’s back, I don’t know how I’ll make it without her in mine.

Sometimes, everything you need is right where you left it. It’s finding the strength to embrace it that’s the hard part.

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

~ 5 No Reservation Stars ~

Well this was a sexy and fun enemies to lovers tale. I always love anything Kristen Proby writes and this was no different.

I thought No Reservations was a great addition to the Fusion Series. This is a novella so it will only take you a couple hour to devour this gem. It is a complete standalone and told in Dual POV. You don’t have to read the Fusion Series before enjoying this story. But I think it is a good idea to get the full experience of these characters. Plus you do see some of the Fusion characters in this story

In this book we follow the story of Chase and Maura. Chase is Mac’s brother (from Blush For You) and Maura is a friend of Kat’s (Kat is Mac’s wife and co-owner of Seduction) Kat has decided she is going to set up Maura….little does Maura know it is with her brother – in – law Chase. But what Kat doesn’t know is that they already know each other and to say they aren’t friendly is an understatement. I will say I loved their banter/bickering or as they said “foreplay” 😉 And the sexual chemistry these two had was OFF THE CHARTS!!! talk about kindle melting. I enjoyed getting to know these characters. They truly were meant for each other.

I also liked seeing Kat and Mac in this story. It was fun seeing them again.

I would recommend this story to everyone. It is a fun and sexy read that you won’t be able to put down. I loved that even though this is a novella and a fairly quick read, I didn’t feel like it was missing anything. We get just enough of everything for this story to feel complete. But don’t take my word for it….Read this book for yourself and see how great of a read this is!!!

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. 

Hers could be right next door…

 
ONLY FOR YOU
Sugar Lake #2
Melissa Foster
Releasing Dec 5, 2017
Montlake

 

 

Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.

 

Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.

 

But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…

 

**ONLY FOR YOU is published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on
other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE, or order the paperback.

~ 5 Here and Now Stars ~

Bodhi Booker…..Remember that name, because you are going to want to meet this AMAZING Hero!!!

I think I have found a new favorite series. I think this series might just be my favorite of Melissa Fosters. I absolutely adored every word in this book!! I honestly couldn’t read it fast enough. I also couldn’t help getting sucked into the world of Sweetwater.

Only For You is the second standalone novel in Melissa’s Sugar Lake Series. I think this is my favorite so far. Not only is one of my favorite type of stories, Bodhi Booker was just an outstanding Hero. This story is told in Dual POV in the third person. I love that when reading a book from Melissa Foster, she describes everything so well that you can’t help but feel what the characters are feeling. You get swept into their lives.

What happens when the Here and Now turns into to something more….like forever???

That is the question that is answered in this book. In Only For You we follow Bridgette and Bodhi’s journey. Bridgette is the sister to Willow (Book 1 The Real Thing). She own the flower shop that is connected to Willow’s bakery. Bridgette is a widow and a single mom, who isn’t looking for anything serious. She is focused on raising her son and building her business. But little did she know meeting Bodhi Booker in her sister’s bakery would change her life. Turns out Bodhi is her neighbor, but he is only around long enough to fix up the house he bought for his mom. He is an Ex Special Ops and now goes on dangerous rescue missions, so he has said he wouldn’t put anyone through the pain of losing him. So he doesn’t want to form any connections. Little did he know that when he met Bridgette and her son Louie…his life would change forever. Loved watching these two grow to know each other but trying to fight their feelings. Bodhi was such an swoon worthy Hero. He melted my heart and my panties throughout the whole book. I can’t truly express how much I loved his character…..you just need to meet him.

As I said before these books in this series are standalones, but there are interconnected characters because this series is focused around the Dalton siblings. Each of who will get their own books. So I would recommend reading this series in order, but it isn’t necessary. I think you will just get the full effect of this family by reading them in order. These books are fun and entertaining without a lot of excess drama.

I would 100% recommend this book to everyone. If you love a single parent romance book, with a Hero that will melt your heart and a kid who is just as sweet as pie, then you have to read this book!! One of Melissa’s best books to date….in my opinion.

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Captivated by Him, an all-new standalone from Terri E. Laine about an imperfect hero and the woman he can’t let go is LIVE!

Captivated by Him-ebook_v1 sm.jpg

Captivated by Him by Terri E. Laine

Genre: New Adult Romance

Publishing Date: December 5th, 2017

 

 

Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.

The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.

And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.

Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me

a reason why.  

If rumors at our college are to be believed, he’s dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he’s shielded by secrets he doesn’t trust me enough to share.

Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.

Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.

Though I want him.

And I know he wants me.

His secrets keep me far from his heart.

I should walk away with my pride intact.

I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.

Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.

However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he’s hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?

Review:

* A review copy was provided by the author for the Blog Tour *

~ 4 My Forever and Always Stars ~

Hmmmm…..I don’t know how to really review this book. My mind is all over the place after reading this story.

I guess this review is going to be more about my feelings while reading the book and not so much about the storyline. Because like with Because Of Him, I can’t say much about the story without it being spoilers.

I have to say I enjoyed this book, but I think I liked Because Of Him more. This book had a little too much angst for my taste. So if you are a lover of angst filled romance stories then this is a book you shouldn’t pass up.

After reading Because Of Him, I was so looking forward to reading Gavin and Megan’s story. There were so many unanswered questions from that book. Captivated By Him answered all of those questions and more. This book does run concurrent with the timeline of Because Of Him, but it is a standalone novel. You don’t have to read Because Of Him first. I would recommend that you do because then you will understand Gavin’s character a little better, plus things that are unraveled in this story will make more sense.

Captivated By Him gave us everything the first book gave us. This story was filled with suspense, lies, betrayals, and romance. And yes some sexy times. I will say that this book took me by surprise as to where the story went. I wasn’t expecting some of the things that happened to happen. But then that’s what makes a great story….right?? This story is told in Dual POV and is a complete story. There is NO Cliffhanger.

All I can really say is if you are a fan of the New Adult Genre, and an angst filled romance then I think you should give this book a try. If you are a fan of Terri’s books you don’t want to miss this latest GEM from her!!!!

This wasn’t supposed to happen.

But it did.

This wasn’t supposed to be my life.

But it was.

 

I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

 

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty.

 

The only problem?

He was off limits.

Forbidden.

 

But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences.

 

My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.
