Review of Dark Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken

review lips

“He tasted like rain, like water–life. I couldn’t kiss him hard enough, or get close enough.”

OMG YAAAAAASSS! Dark Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken is the third book in The Dark Ones Saga. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend that you start with the first book to get the full story. There is a was coming and will enjoy the books more when read as a whole.

This is Alex’s story and I was so excited to read it! Alex is the sexy Siren in the group and it’s his turn to find a mate in order to reach his full power potential. I loved his witty banter with Mason, but in this book, we got to see another side of him.

Hope is not what she seems. As the story progresses,

Alex and Hope are perfect for each other! Their chemistry is off the charts

Must Read Series!

I devoured this book in one day! I absolutely love the banter between everyone in he house. They bicker and love like family, because that’s what they are to each other. This book took me on a rollercoaster of ups and downs and I loved every second of it! Hope and Alex were perfect for each other. I can’t wait for Mason’s story. That man needs a HEA!

Complete Stand Alone/No Cliffhanger

Never met a male siren before?
You’re about to….

I grew up as a prince…
And lead the life of a King.
There isn’t anyone or anything that doesn’t want me, that isn’t attracted to me. They can’t help it. And I sure as hell don’t want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.
As a male siren it’s my job to feed off emotion.
And I was happy to do it.
I am happy to do it.
What I’m not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There’s a war coming and being the idiot I am–I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend.
Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts.
And I’m left wondering if it’s worth it.
If she’s worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands.
But I have a world to save.
A job to do.
Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I’ve lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet.
Only to meet my match.
With one.
Measly.
Human.
They say hells hot. They’re wrong.
Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter.
And before this is over–she may just singe me alive.

Blurb:

I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.

This is a stand-alone novel.

Excerpt:

“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”

For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”

“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”

“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.

He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”

I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.

“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”

My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”

“Okay?” he asked.

I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.

I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.

He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”

“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.

“Think about it.”

Review: Mistake’s Melody by Anne Malcom

review-lips copy

Heart-wrenchingly beautiful, this book owned me from the very first word. It deserves so much more than 5 stars.

Wyatt and Emma have known each other since they were teens. Before Unquiet Mind was a household name. Before…

That was before.
Before the fame.
Before they fell.
Before the hurt and pain of a love that would forever be tainted by their pasts.

This book wrecked me. These characters came alive on the page. And I was all too ready and willing to consume every word they spoke.

Emma grew up in a house that had no love.

Wyatt was constantly belittled and never knew his true worth. Together they found they were enough.

“I loved you when I knew it was a bad idea. And I knew that it would end in pain. But I did it anyway. I don’t blame you for breaking my heart, Wyatt. I blame myself for letting you.”

All of my emotions were left in pieces on the floor while reading this book. The push and pull, the angst…gah! I wanted to shake sense into both Wyatt and Emma. To get their shit together; to be happy. Their love was like a rose, beautiful to look at but you will bleed from the pain of thorns.

synopsis-lips copy

He’s world famous.
The most eligible bachelor in Hollywood.
Owns the stage and thousands of hearts around the world.
The bassist of Unquiet Mind.
Rock royalty.

But he’s none of that to me.

To me, he’s just Wyatt.
The teenager I met in my best friend’s garage.
I promised him he’d never get into my bed or into my heart.
It turns out I lied.

Review: Checkmate – This is Reckless by Kennedy Fox

review-lips copy

My “I’ll Just Be Over Here…” 4 star Review of Checkmate: This is Reckless by the awesome author duo Kennedy Fox.

NOOOOO! I’ll be over here, rocking in the corner, waiting on the next book to come out so I can stop all the tears. This book just ended on ONE HELL OF A CLIFFY!

Checkmate: This is Reckless, Drew & Courtney #1, is book 3 in the Checkmate Duet Series by Kennedy Fox. This duet series follows three couples, each couple having two books to tell their stories.

Where to start. This is the first book I’ve read by these two talented ladies and it will not be the last!

This book is a friends to lovers read. It was sweet to see the way Drew and Courtney interacted. It was easy. Drew needed easy, since his on again off again girlfriend was anything but. Mia was such a jealous and selfish woman. She continued to manipulate Drew for years until he finally saw her for what she was. I was sooooo ecstatic to see him finally open his eyes to see what a great person Courtney was. Not only as a best friend, but more.

One night of passion and one misunderstanding later I was flipping these pages so fast just to see what happened next! One minute I’m swooning over how sweet these two are together and then came the WTH…NOOOO moment.

Cliffhangers aren’t a favorite for me, but this was nicely done. I can’t wait to read what’s next! If you haven’t yet read Kennedy Fox books, you need to get on that now! I highly recommend you start with This is War to get the full effect of the series. You won’t regret it!

synopsis-lips copy

Drew Fisher is the type of guy every girl wants.
Noble police officer by day, charming prince by night.
He has no idea the effect he has on women, especially me–his little sister’s best friend.
I’m the blonde Southern belle who lives up to the cliché, except I have my own quirks. I’m smart as a whip, can change my own oil, and recite The Pledge of Allegiance backward, but he doesn’t see that girl.

It’d be easier to forget him if he wasn’t my roommate and if the first thing I saw in the morning wasn’t his shirtless body covered in tattoos. I’ve crushed on him since the day we met, but he’s made it perfectly clear where we stand. Just friends.

I know I need to move on and accept that his feelings will never be mutual, but every day he smiles at me, I’m left dreaming of what if.
He has girl issues, and I’ve got a crush I can’t deny.
We’re friends, but I want more.

One drunken hookup leaves us with much more than a platonic friendship. Pretending it never happened proves to be more difficult than anticipated.

A crazy ex-girlfriend, a dangerous war of stolen glances, and passionate kisses leads to the most reckless battle yet. I won’t be a pawn in his game, but I’ll play by his rules if it will show him I’m the one worth breaking them for.

Checkmate, Prince Charming.

Review of Counterpoints by Laura Rossi

review-lips copy

I gave this book 4 of 5 stars. Counterpoints is book one of a trilogy and is a beautiful debut novel by Laura Rossi.

Isabella starts working at a PR firm for a racing conglomerate where their top racer is a cocky driver who is used to not only winning, but has a revolving door of women at his beck and call.

Christopher has everything. Fame, a career he loves and as many one night stands as he wants….until he meets her. The chemistry is instant, but will they be able to sustain it, or will one of them end up walking away…

“I am afraid to take a step forward and…miss the ground beneath my feet. You know, that awful feeling that you are going to hit the floor hard”
“Who says you will miss the ground?” she could hear him smile.
“What If I do though?”
“You’d fall down and then get back up again”

I loved this debut novel by Ms. Rossi. The character development was great and with only a few hiccups, and I thought it was very well written as well. I’m not normally one for cliffhangers, but I thought this one was well done and I can’t wait to read book 2!

synopsis-lips copy

When Isabella lands the job of her dreams, she knows her life won’t be the same again, especially when her task is to travel the world with a car race team.
Leaving behind her family and loved ones, she embarks on a journey across continents, during which she’ll meet new friends, learn more about herself and about the people she can really trust, but most of all Isabella will fall for a man who is totally wrong for her.

Join Isabella on the ride of her life.

“Next”: My Review of Scoring the Quarterback by S.M. Soto

review-lips copy

3 Star Review

I hated to give this low of a rating, but there was so much going on in this book, I had a hard time with it. Scoring the Quarterback by S.M. Soto had a lot going on.

The phrase “I couldn’t care less” and “Bar and Grille” were way overused and all this book was missing was a secret baby with all the different tropes running through it. There were so many issues with these characters and honestly the only ones I remotely liked were Natalia and Aliza, and I stopped liking Natalia after she continued being a doormat with no chance of growing a backbone in sight.

Luke was tolerable at first. Hot college jock destined for the NFL falling for the geeky girl, or so I thought. The way he pursued her, I thought it was an insta-love, I was wrong, sort of. I never got the frenemy to lover vibe. He pursued her; she was indifferent. Just as I thought it would change and get a little deeper into their “relationship”, he would either tell her he still sleeps with anything that walked (which, ok they weren’t dating, but really? Why would you tell her this?) and he kept playfully calling her hershey squirts, again, really?

Then when they started dating, he was sweet, she was smitten. Then he did the most unforgivable thing EVER. At this point, I was thinking Yes, this book is going to end on her HEA not being with him. But in the end, the doormat that she is took him back!

*SPOILER ALERT* Sorry, cheating is an auto no go for me. He constantly treated her badly and she either accepted she could do no better or just didn’t care.

Although this wasn’t my cuppa, there are TONS of people out there that like the cheating aspect of books. And even thought I didn’t necessarily like this book, it will not deter me from reading more by this author. Get it and decide for yourself.

synopsis-lips copy

Luke Caldwell has three abhorrent qualities to him:
1) He’s a pig-headed jock.
2) He’s a grade A asshole with the biggest, overbearing ego.
3) He’s a manwhore.

These three qualities alone should’ve had me running for the hills. I tried to steer clear of him, I really did, but it was an impossible feat. Luke Caldwell was nothing if not persistent, and the way he bulldozed through my life, not taking no for an answer is proof of it.

I tried to stay away from him.

I wanted to hate him. But I couldn’t. Luke was nothing like the idiot jock I pegged him out to be. He became a friend, a confidant, and after one unforgettable night, he became so much more.

Whatever this is between us, it’s impossible to ignore. I just hope when all is said and done, I won’t be burned by the college bad boy.

Review of INK: A Love Story on 7th and Main by Elizabeth Hunter

Incredible 5 star read! Elizabeth Hunter totally delivered on this sweet bookish read! I absolutely loved this book! This is the first book I’ve had the pleasure of reading by this author. I loved that she drew me in with small town feels then hooked me with the INK concept. Which is brilliant btw!

This book is centered around Emmie and Ox. After moving back to her hometown, Emmie is the proud owner of a new book store. While getting the storefront ready to open, she and her friends witness a lovers quarrel at the tattoo shop across the street and Emmie can’t help but fantasize about the gorgeous tattoo artist that would never give her the time of day. But to get her business off the ground she needs his help selling ink.

Ox has had it with women. His last relationship was toxic and now that he is out of a job, he needs to keep what he has with Emmie professional. That’s easier said than done. Sparks fly in this incredibly sweet and witty book.

I love the characters and the chemistry between them. Emmie and Ox were perfect for each other and I can’t wait for the next book in this series to knock me off my feet.

synopsis-lips copy

It’s everything but business as usual.

Emmie Elliot hadn’t expected to come back to Metlin, California. She definitely didn’t expect to stay. She returned to her childhood home with a mission: Sell the building that housed her grandmother’s book store and move on with her life.

But life doesn’t always go according to plan.

To reopen her grandmother’s book shop, Emmie will need a hook. She’ll need a strategy. She’ll need an… Ox?

Miles Oxford doesn’t have much interest in quiet bookstore owners. He’s a tattoo artist without a space to work, and the last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone after his last disaster of a relationship. Work and pleasure don’t mix for Ox, but since he doesn’t have any interest in the cute girl with the bold business proposal, he should be safe from any awkward complications, right?

She sells ink. He tattoos it. Unusual? Yes. But a book shop/tattoo studio might be the ticket for both Emmie and Ox to find success on their own terms. As long as they keep their attention focused on business.

Just on business.

Review of Loaded Replay by Harper Sloan

review-lips copy

Hot Alpha meets Sassy Songbird

I went into this book blind, but since I am hooked on everything that Harper Sloan writes and the fact that it is a rock star read, I knew it was going to blow my little mind.

Loaded Replay is a new spin-off series. We first got a glimpse of Chance as well as Loaded Replay in the Hope Town series.

Wrenlee Davenport along with her twin brother Weston and their two best friends, Luke and Jamison, make up the hot band Loaded Replay. Chance Nash is head of personal security at Corps Security and as with all the boys from Corps Security, Chase is all alpha male and sinfully yummy.

Ms. Sloan so thoroughly drew me into this story, I felt an instant connection to the characters. I absolutely got lost in this book and couldn’t put it down.

Chance continues to blame himself for things in his past that were out of his control and realizes he needs a change of pace. So when he’s asked to be in charge of security for Loaded Repay due to some incidences involving over exuberant fans and a stalker, he jumps at the chance. Although this job could prove to be a challenge all on its own. Wrenlee Davenport has owned his heart from the moment he set eyes on her three years ago at one of her concerts, but will she feel the same connection he feels?

Wrenlee, the lead singer of the award-winning band Loaded Replay, didn’t expect quite the notoriety that comes with being on top and is left feeling exhausted and like she’s living her life in a fish bowl.

“People never realize what might look perfect from the outside could really be a prison without bars.”

After a string of failed romances, the last one ending three years earlier, she is reluctant to let anyone but her bandmates get close. Until she meets Chance Nash. Wren is a little rough around the edges but has a heart of gold. She is sassy, spirited and fiercely loyal to those she loves. Everyone wants a piece of her, except Chance. She wants to be with him, he’s the first man who loves her and not just the persona, the sexy singer with the body of a saint, of Loaded Replay.

“She’s a goddess. The unattainable one, according to the world that loves them. The woman other females wish to be and the one males crave to be with.”

He fights their connection as long as he can, but there’s no fighting fate and I believe these two were meant for each other. Both their jaded hearts will fit together and make a whole.

“My knight in tarnished armor has finally found his broken princess….”

I loved all the bantering back and forth not only between Wren and Chance, but also with the band. I CANNOT wait for Jamison’s book!

synopsis-lips copy

Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world. It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.

Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.

Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.

Happiness…that feeling is a joke.

In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.

*Jaded Hearts is the first book in the Loaded Replay series.*
