Get ready book whores, this is gonna rock!

Racer, an all-new standalone in the Real Series from New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans is coming September 28th!!!

A bad boy with something to prove.

A woman with a mission.

The race of their lives.

The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…

but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

ARC REVIEW ~ Mr. Big by Delancey Stewart

PicsArt_08-30-10.35.27

Mr. BigMr. Big by Delancey Stewart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oliver Cody left everything he knew behind in search of himself, but after a devastating blow, he is more lost than ever.

Holland O’Dell has a plan. She has a list to check off and she needs to stick to it to feel in control of her life.

I thought this book was charming. The characters drew me in and I was hooked until the very last page. Did I want to junk punch Ollie at times? Yep. Did I want to slap some sense into Holland? Yep, I wanted to do that too. I loved that Holland, for the most part, was a strong, independent woman. She was in charge of her own destiny and she was going to take the world by storm. Ollie was a sad, lost man. He needed a kick to the head and Holland was just the girl to deliver that blow.

Overall, I thought the story line was a great concept. Ms. Stewart put a smart, driven heroine together with a CEO with the need to feel like he makes a difference and it worked.

ARC REVIEW ~ The Playboy Batchlor by Rachel Van Dyken

PicsArt_08-30-04.01.10.jpg

The Playboy Bachelor (The Bachelors of Arizona)The Playboy Bachelor by Rachel Van Dyken

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have never read a book by this author that I didn’t absolutely LOVE and this book was no exception. Although, this one was unique in its story-line, I would still recommend it to everyone I come across.

The Playboy Bachelor is the second book in The Bachelors of Arizona series. Just so you know, this is a true standalone. I did not read book one and usually even when authors say it’s a standalone, I end up wishing I had read the first book to completely understand what is going on. Not with this one! I jumped right in and couldn’t put it down!

Both Brantley and Margot carry the scars of their past around like a scarf dousing them in misery. Both lost and needing each other to find their way home.

This was an emotional read. I loved the sweet elements of it and that sometimes what you need to heel is a second chance on life and love.

HE’S A HOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR. SHE’S LITERALLY THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

One of Hollywood’s A-listers, I have the movie industry in the palm of my hand. But if I’m going to stay at the top, my playboy image needs an overhaul. No more tabloid headlines. No more parties. And absolutely no more one night stands.

Filming for my latest blockbuster takes place on the coast of Maine and I’m determined to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds me when I run into Lana Kelly.

She doesn’t recognize me, she’s never heard of Matt Easton and my million dollar smile doesn’t work on her.

Ego shredded, I know I should keep my distance, but when I realize she’s my neighbor I know I’m toast. There’s no way I can resist temptation when it’s ten yards away.

She has a mouth designed for pleasure and legs that will wrap perfectly around my waist.

She’s movie star beautiful and her body is made to be mine.

Getting Lana Kelly into my bed is harder than I’m used to. She’s not interested in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but I’m determined to convince her the best place in the world is on the red carpet, holding my hand.

A sexy, standalone romance.

ARC Review – Clandestine by Ava Harrison

PicsArt_08-22-11.10.30

ClandestineClandestine by Ava Harrison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Where to start. I fell hard in the beginning of this book. Olivia was sweet, yet troubled and Spencer was your stereotypical playboy CEO and I loved every minute of it. He owned it and wasn’t one bit ashamed.

When hearts are involved, nothing is ever easy and they had an uphill battle to fight.

Just when I was starting to love Olivia, she would do something stupid that made me want to shake some sense into her. I was left feeling disappointed in her halfway through her journey to happiness. While I realize the heroine had some past addictions and current hang ups, I was hoping by this point she would have been a little stronger and learned to cope a little better than she did. I was also both taken aback and elated when her party-girl friend made a complete 180 that I didn’t see coming. Then when tragedy struck I was sad nothing was said about her again until the end.

Spencer had so much going on, yet he still allowed his feelings for Olivia to develop and grow. And of course there were heart pumping scenes that involved him as well that had me gasping WTF at my Kindle. Speaking of…Addison needs to just walk away. Seriously! This woman!

Overall, I thought this was a good read with lots of twists and turns, complex characters and a plot-line that makes you believe in true love and happily-ever-afters.

ARC Review – Beast by Elizabeth Reyes

PicsArt_08-09-08.32.34.jpg

Beast (Boyle Heights, #2)Beast by Elizabeth Reyes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars.

This was the first book I had read by this author and even though it was book 2 in the series, I honestly had no troubles reading it as a standalone because the backstories were written so well.

I thought Allison was sweet, she was so strong, but smothered by her overbearing sister. Whom I was not a fan of. One of the things I loved was that as much as Leonardo fought it, their connection was too strong. I loved that he was this tough bad*** and she brought him to his knees.

There were some twists that popped up that caught me by surprise. Although I liked the characters and thought the story-line was intriguing, I just couldn’t connect with the main characters. I did, however, connect with Drew.

Overall, I thought the book had an intriguing story-line and likeable characters and would recommend this book.

ARC Review – The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

The ForbiddenThe Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**I was lucky to win an ARC of this amazing book and am honored to leave an honest review**

Wow! This book just…. Wow! I’m having a hard time putting into words what this book did to me. I am emotionally drained. So many twists and turns.

This book was gripping, raw and incredibly real. Annie and Jack took my heart. I found the story-line incredibly intriguing and couldn’t put this book down!

Throughout the book there are so many twists and turns. It’s both heart-wrenching and passionate. I laughed. I cried. And at times, I had to put it down and walk away for a while before continuing on.

I thought this book was so different from her previous writings. It may not be for everyone, but it will take you on an emotional journey that you won’t forget.

Release Blitz and Review – Toying with Her by Prescott Lane

SBPRBanner-TWH-BT.jpg

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane

Release Date: August 17th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is available NOW!!!

toyingwithher

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible.  Yep, that’s right.  That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child.  It’s aptly named Woman on Top.  And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots.  It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more.  But Rorke Weston has other plans for me.  Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.   

It’s been said you never forget your first.  For me, that’s definitely true.  No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man.  Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long.  And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance.  The one we never had.  But that was a long time ago.  When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters.  Even ten years later, I feel a pull.  And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.  

Do second chances really happen?  Or is my heart simply toying with me?

Excerpt:

I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now.  We don’t even have to move from this spot.  I can take her right up against the door.  My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach.  The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her.  She grinds right back.  

“Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her.

We never just had a kiss.  We went from kissing to sex in the same breath.  And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer.  I want that more.  I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling.  

I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me.  I’m going to make it damn near impossible.

Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck.  Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly.  She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment.  

“Rorke,” she begs breathlessly.

I know she’s used to being in control.  Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be.  Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure.  But that ends right now.  When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it.  When you want a kiss, I’m your man.  You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

MY #REVIEW

Toying with HerToying with Her by Prescott Lane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Shining Star Read!

PicsArt_08-04-11.35.26.jpg

Before reading this book, I didn’t know what to expect, since this was my first read by this author. After reading this book, I immediately downloaded everything Ms. Lane has written and plan on a binge read! If you have not read anything by this author yet, I strongly advise you to do so.

Finding love and keeping friends is hard to do when your business is considered scandalous by trade and people are always buzzing about it (<— Ha! See what I did there). Sterling Jamison has all but given up on finding love and not for lack of trying. That is until she comes back to her hometown for the summer and runs into her delicious best friend.

Rorke Weston has loved Sterling since they were little. But he always settled for the best friend roll since he could never quite find the right time to tell her. Then on the most tragic day of his life, their relationship is forever changed.

“That’s the thing about women. When they push you away, it means you need to love them harder”

This book was a sweet and funny second chance love story with some hot AF sexy times. Their chemistry could ignite a room it was so hot.

“I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure. But that ends right now. When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it. When you want a kiss, I’m your man. You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

The memories they shared of growing up were funny and sweet and at times, made my cry. I loved the part Levi played in their rekindled relationship. And I especially loved her quirky notes she was always leaving around.

“I’ve been in love with you for most of my life. I was made to love you.”

Add this to your TBR or 1-click it as soon as you can. Toying with Her is definitely a must read!
