Unexpected Fate (Hope Town Book 1) by Harper Sloan

5 moons

In one word and my first reading about the Hope Town series is WOW. I fell for Cohen Gage and Danielle Reid in this book to the point where there were times I wanted to read it all over again. We have two people who have always been friends, Cohen, being the son Axel Reid doesn’t have even though he’s got Nate his own son and Danielle his daughter who is still his little princess. Cohen is everything he would want for his daughter and then some yet feels Cohen needs to prove to him that he is worthy of her love. This not your usual romance but the love Cohen has for Danielle is sweet and hot dang sexual it is hard to explain without giving out spoilers about the book. I loved that Danielle knows what she wants and even though it will hurt her father she wants Cohen. This is a love that has been growing and seeing it through Danielle’s eyes was beautiful. Harper Sloan shows us that when it comes to love nobody and nothing can tear it apart especially when it is a friendship that grows into an everlasting love. This is the first in a series that is coming to mean so much to me and cannot wait to see what else will happen in this little town. Loved it.

Drunk on You (Hope Town Book 4) by Harper Sloan
Ebook
5 moons

Good Lord Harper Sloan should have put a BEWARE sign in the front of this book. We have Nikki who is tired of putting all her trust and love on men only well to get brokenhearted once again. She gave it all for Seth and like an idiot really thought maybe it was her time for happiness . A broken heart can never be mended by any average man what you need is an Alpha, sex on a stick man like Shane. The chemistry that Harper Sloan has for these two is sizzling and no bucket of ice can extinguish the heat they have for each other. I loved that Shane is a man who guards his heart well but when it comes to a sweet, cute and sassy girl like Nikki he has no chance of surviving without her. There were times where I was like what, no way and then yes give me more between them. Harper Sloan gave it all in this book from love, passion, a Magic Mike show of Shane that well you just gotta read about and finally a woman getting what she deserves after all this time. Loved it and again BEWARE grab tons of ice for Harper Sloan just exploded in this book with so much hotness, sexiness and ooh la la la’s. HOT!!!

L.P. Dover is back again in her Breakaway series and have to say SWEET. We saw a little of Dallas in Kellan’s book and boy L.P. Dover delivered all the way with this guy. I loved the sweet camaraderie between Dallas and Callie it was funny at time and also frustrating lol. Seeing the game between these two was like an adult version of Little Red Riding Hood with Dallas being the all sexy and on the hunt for his delicious prey Callie. There is fireworks between them and boy L.P. Dover knows sex in a way that makes you want more of it especially between these two. I for one loved seeing Kellan an Kristen in this book an seeing how far they have come. Cannot wait for what is next in this series. Loved it and a series you don’t want to miss.

Wild For You by J.C. Reed
Print
5 moons

I love it when it comes to a man who knows what he’s got is important even if his heart is not all the way in yet. We have Cash Boyd, who just in the first chapter every reader will love and want more. He is sexy, hot and the most stubborn man Erin Stone has ever met. The chemistry they have is yes hot and cold but beneath that is a passion exploding in a scintillating way. Have to applaud J.C. Reed for creating such a man like Cash and a woman like Erin to show him that there can be more than bull riding in his life. This is actually book 2 in a series and have to say I am already hooked on J.C. Reed wanting more of these sexy men. Loved it and cannot wait for what is next by this talented author, Hot, sexy and a wild ride readers will love.

5 moons

The Original Heartbreaker’s series is back and I love going back to Strawberry, Valley especially when it comes to the Original Heartbreakers by Gena Showalter. Each person in this series has deep storylines that will pull you in wanting more. We have Daniel Porter who is the all around fun guy and now because of the War is a changed man who thinks he shouldn’t have come back alive. We have the one woman who really knows him and for the first time in months he is feeling almost like his old self. The attraction between them is strong and loved that her being with Daniel we see the woman Dorothea is meant to become. Gena Showalter created such a beautiful series and it’s not just Daniel and Dorothea but we see the rest of the Strawberry family we have come to love. I for one cannot wait for the next one in this series, Strawberry Valley is definitely where you want to visit by this talented author. Loved it.

Ready to Run (I Do, I Don’t) by Lauren Layne
Ebook
5 moons

Lauren Layne you totally rocked this series and the idea of this book was awesome. Jordan is one determined woman and nothing is going to stop her especially a hot, sexy and tempting fireman like Luke Elliott. When I started reading this story I thought, another wedding story, but one thing I have learned by reading Lauren Layne is there is always a twist in her books making you want more. This is just the first in her I Do, I Don’t series, readers grab the ice cold water for Luke Elliott is one scrumptious guy and poor Jordan has no chance of fighting his sexiness. There is just something about a groom going rogue but more than meets the eye and Lauren Layne creating Jordan is one woman with a bone in front of her making Luke a target she cannot ignore. The chemistry between them sizzles throughout the book and when it all comes down to it is Lauren Layne doesn’t pull any disappointments in this book making you want to go to this little town yourself. Comedy, passion, lies and romance is what makes Lauren Layne and this series just WOW. Loved it.

Okay I will admit Kristen Proby and the Seduction restaurant is a favorite of mine but I can say how relatable Riley Gibson is to me. From the beginning we see a woman who is like all of us just wanting a man to be loved, cherished and wanted. Here is a woman who has centered her whole life on her business and now that all of her friends are finding their own happily ever after’s she wants to be in that group as well. I loved that Trevor is a dream come true everything she has been searching for in a man finally showing her what it could be like. The love and friendship that blooms between them is unique and in a way shows us that a man like Trevor does exist when we least expect it and this is why I love this series. Awesome book and if you never read this series before you better get to it this is a series you don’t want to miss.

MAXWELL: Brothers Ink Tattoo (Brothers Ink Tattoo Series Book 2) by Nicole James
Ebook
5 moons

Okay first of Nicole James and her O’ Rourke men are hot. We have the serious yet funny Maxwell. We got a little bit of him in Jameson’s book and boy he has so much that was hiding from us. Then we have Malee, the woman who has bewitched him in a way he never expected to go through. Malee is unlike any woman he has known in a way that she is special in a unique way. It is because of this I have to applaud Nicole James in the way she brought these two together. The love they have is like a modern day Romeo and Juliet to the point where we have only our faith to have them going. Nicole James shined in this book and the way these men have grown to be how they are right now is awesome. To others they may seem like bad men with their tattoos but to their women they are passionate, sweet, romantic and yes oh so sexy. Loved this one and I for one cannot wait for Liam and Rory’s stories.

Love Another Day (Masters and Mercenaries Book 14) by Lexi Blake
Ebook and Print
5 moons

I cannot believe this is actually book 14 by Lexi Blake in her Masters and Mercenaries series and boy all I have to say is WOW. Each story is like a suspense soap opera filled with action, death, betrayal and did I mention the oh so sexy men. Lexi Blake brings us Dr. Riley Gibson who in a way feels like she doesn’t deserve to be alive and Brody Carter who will do anything to protect his woman at all costs. Right from the first chapter the action starts an doesn’t stop pulling you into a rollercoaster of a ride from London, Africa to even back to the hot and sexy Sanctum Club. There were times I wanted to yes slap some sense in Riley and Brody for the way they were acting but also applaud for Brody never giving up on his woman. This is one of those series that I really hope keeps going for there is so much that Dr. Hope MacDonald has ruined and people that we need to see get their own loves.

180 pages
Ebook

My name is Lilly and I am in love. Problem is that the man I am in love with has been dead for 12 years. Shane Owings was my everything, friend and lover all in one handsome man. I know I should have shown my feelings too him but I was a scared and a shy girl. Now as a woman I regret not telling him. Everybody tells me I need to move on but Shane was the one for me. We were raised by Hollywood family but Shane was the only one who didn’t treat me like an easy way to stardom. We had plans, dreams and in between a friendship I haven’t had in a long time. I would do anything to have him back at least that is what I thought. Now someone wants me dead and I have no idea why. All I know is all I thought that has happened is just betrayal. Will my life ever be the same? Will Shane only be the one true love of my life?

I know coming back was a mistake but I miss her. For years I have seen her come by and talk to nothing. I love my job and though I know I made the wrong decision all those years ago I still want her. Lilly was the only woman I know who can make me tell all my dreams, hopes and secrets. She is also the reason why someone wants her dead now. Of all the things I have done protecting her was my main goal. No matter how far I traveled or how many people I killed she was my constant. I have done everything I can to protect Lilly but now the enemy has found my weakness. I am nothing to her but a ghost but even dead I am going to keep her safe. Can I however prove to her that she is and always my true love?

I love reading a love story that has a chance of love again especially when it involves sexy alpha men like Shane. Have to say Lilly might seem a little naïve about life around her but when it comes to Shane though she is one alert woman. The love she has for him has never left and now that there is a chance she is afraid. Their friendship and love is what got her through her life and knowing that everything she has gone through was a farce just pains her. Riley Edwards sure knows how to make everything you thought heartbreaking yet it is because of this that makes the love stronger than ever. Shane knows what he wants and Lilly is not just any woman for a good night of fun she is the forever he has secretly dreamed of having forever. Loved it and really hope there is more from the 707 agency especially Jasper. Loved it.

Vince and Jackie, friends forever that is us for the past couple of years since our divorces. At one time, yes I would have gone out with him but the timing wasn’t right. Seems it will never be and now my attention is on Mr. 11:45 a.m. jogging man aka my new sex-on-a-stick guy. I know I have high hopes but I am ready to get back in the saddle and he is my key. I know his schedule like how Vince likes his pizza and movie night. Problem is I am a rusty on flirting and Vince is the man who can get me on the right track. I mean I have seen him with women they come to him like bees do to honey. I never thought for a moment though that him being my coach in this will lead me seeing him in a sexy, funny and irresistible way. As I learn about myself and about Vince I am wondering if maybe me going after Mr. 11:45 might not be the guy I need to get back in the saddle.  Now I just need to figure out where our friendship is going to end up, us drifting apart or a forever we never expected.

She is the one, has been for months an now it is my time. Jacqueline was there when my divorce became final, the person that didn’t let me go all the way to the bottom and like a beacon of light she makes me better only with her. Being with her is the highlight of my weekends and working is torture seeing her in tight skirts temptation every day. I was ready and then she starts on Mr. 11:45 getting addicted to seeing him running every morning. I have to admit he is hot but I am hotter and she hasn’t seen all of me until now. Being her coach was just to help with her sexuality but I want more than just quick kisses. Our friendship is important though and I feel if I lead more she will pull away. It has always been Vince and Jackie and now I want more than that I want the girl that is right in front of me. Can I prove to her that I can be more than a friend and she has always been the one for me?

I love it when Jessica Lemmon starts a new series especially one that involves two people denying the attraction. Vince Carson has gone through heartache and pain when his ex just dumped him and the one person that he trusted has always been Jackie. The thing is that when he finds out there is competition it is the push he needs right now. Jackie is exactly what he needs in his life for she completes him as a friend, co-worker and yes sexual partner. You can right from the beginning the chemistry between them and Jessica Lemmon did it beautiful bringing them together. What I loved the most is yes there is sex but Jessica Lemmon shows us more about their friendship. These two together were great to read and boy cannot wait for more of this series by Jessica Lemmon. Loved it.

She gets me, which is weird. My name is John Cole the local bad boy, the one that your parents tell you to stay away. At least I used to be until that night when we first met. Edie is her name and she like me is alive. We have nothing in common yet I cannot stay away from her. Everybody in this town see`s me as trouble, useless and sad to say I agree with them until Edie came along. I am not sure why she was there that night but she makes me want things. For the first time I don`t want to be the one to go for a good deal or a good time I just want to be well, liked for me. Being with Edie is making me want to be the guy her mother wants her to be with a guy with a future. All it takes is one night, one thing in our thread of life to make you see all is not lost if you trust.

I never expected though me going to San Diego and meeting a man like Aden Colt. I have been with men but Aden is nothing like them for he makes me do things I have never done before. This was supposed to be a quick trip and yet the closer my deadline is coming the thought of leaving Aden is becoming unbearable. He is a man who hasn’t had that much trust in friends and though people tell me to stay away from him my heart wants him. Just when I think I can be fun and impulsive I am pushed away in a way that is not surprising to me.

I don’t deserve to live but ever since Celia came into my life I feel like I’m breathing again. I am not the man I used to be and Celia deserves someone more than a broken and easily tempered man like me.

I get asked a lot of questions about my career, my money, my love life but none about my first love. It has been years since I have been back home but the say, Home Sweet Home, is definitely not in my path back to my hometown. I thought I had it all when I got engaged to Brad but of all the parts I have acted in my life, an idiot was not one of them. Newberry used to be the place where I felt safe and well loved but now everything has changed especially Cooper Mayfield. I left him as a boy, my first love and now coming back he is all man. He has grown up to be even sexier than my ex and the chemistry we had years ago is stronger than ever. When I was with Coop I wasn’t the actress I am now but the girl who found love. Everybody thinks though I am a snob, forgot where I came from but even I don’t know who I am anymore. Being with Coop right now I want what could have been even though inside I am scared of the outcome. Can I play this major role, the girl who can have all she has dreamed of and not mess up?

She is back, at least the girl I fell for years ago is somewhere in the haughty actress demanding her house back. Eden Goodnight is not a girl you can easily forget, I should know I have tried for 14 years. She was my first love, the first girl to make me believe anything is possible, but like every other girl broke my heart. We swore to remain friends but can you really stay friends with someone who has bigger dreams than you. Newberry has always been my home, I am a simple man who loves simple things not all into Hollywood or being famous unlike Eden. Seeing her after all these years back in the place that made her who she is just confuses the hell out of me. I made a promise to myself to not fall in love again but my heart and soul wants Eden. Everybody says I am crazy to give her a second look but the chemistry between us is still there and now I want more than just a fling with her.

Okay have to say we all have had this happen to us but when it comes to Sawyer Bennett it is more than just getting Jilted. Cooper Mayfield is a man who has never forgotten about his break up and Eden Goodnight well just went from being Hollywood’s favorite star to now a runaway. Going back to Newberry was her safe haven and boy when she meets Coop all over again watch out with the fireworks. These two have a connection that has never fizzled but when together it sizzles again to a point they never expected to happen again. Sawyer Bennett shows us that some distance apart can definitely make the heart crave each other more. The passion these two have is hot and lets just say Coop is hotter than any Hollywood star in my opinion.. The love they have between them is one that yes grew up but the passion they have is what makes them stronger. Loved it.

People looked at me and saw beauty, now especially me, only see scars. In some ways working in the burn unit, helping others is making me see that I am tired. Tired of going through repeated surgeries with hope all will be right again. Being with Owen, reluctantly but slowly warming up to him is making me feel things I haven’t felt in a long time. I know he doesn’t see the real me but seeing him face the world being who he is makes want to be free as well. The thing is that these feelings I have for him are all coming down like an avalanche and I am scared for more than just me. Can I be falling for him so soon or am I just pretending that I can have love?

Sometimes I wonder if leaving the Marines was a good choice. Would I still be alive? Would people know my name? You see everybody loves me, want to be me and want to rub my fur. Here’s where it gets tricky I am the Colorado Avalanche’s team mascot, Bernie, not the career my parents would have wanted me to be. The thing is I love that being Bernie is making kids laugh and smile having fun until I met her. Something about Paige makes me want to be more than just a mascot, I want to be her man. I know I am gorgeous like I used to be but seeing her smile and laugh is what gets me. I never believed in love at first sigh but after seeing Paige for the first time I am a goner for her. There is something she is hiding and I am ready to be there for her no matter how stalkerish I might sound to her. Can I prove to her that it is not what’s outside that is attracting me but what is inside, the real Paige that has gone to my heart?

I love the Colorado Avalanche hockey team and Bernie well I am sucker for big furry dogs. We have Paige who has gone through a traumatizing event in her life, one that she is still coping to overcome and a big sexy guy who is trying to find himself in a way. These two have known heartache, pain and yet are perfect for each other in a way they never expected. What comes to mind is the song Scars to Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara when I finished this book. This is all Paige, scared of what people think of her and growing to be the brave person she really is deep down. Owen shows her she can be who she used to be with a little push and love she can go far. Jennifer Snow shined in this book and a favorite so far from this whole series. Cannot wait for the next one.

Hollywood, you can either love it or hate it. In my case I had both that in some way has made me be than man I am. My name is Wyatt Royce and in one brief of time I had it all. I had loving parents, went to best of schools and a girl who made me feel I can be anything with her love. Then one night everything changed and now I want to show Hollywood I can be so much better. The girl, however, though has become like a figment of my imagination, never seeming real right now. I see life now through my camera, capturing the beauty of life, women and sex. I love sex and though it has been years that girl is still there in my head. She was my everything until I found out the real reason she was with me. Like I said Hollywood you can hate it or love in my case it is the thing that also made me stronger. Being behind the lense I see things nobody see’s and Kelsey Draper is a woman who doesn’t know what she is getting into. Can I be who she wants me to be or show her that being behind the camera I am more than just Wyatt Royce? I am the one who see’s what she has been afraid to feel and maybe finally get the answers to questions I have had for years?

This is my chance to make things right once and for all. Years ago I was the always studious, shy and obedient girl always doing the right thing. At least I was until I met Wyatt Royce. He was the new guy in the area, the guy that your mothers tell you to stay away but temptation lurks in. Being with Wyatt made me see that I have been sheltered in life and well in my feelings. He made me feel love and his kisses just well were phenomenon. He was my everything at the time but one night changed everything, made me see that I can never be the girl he wants me to be. Now seeing him again is making me want things I have boxed away in my heart and it hurts. Wyatt is a man you don’t say no and when he makes an offer to me I know it is more than just yes. I am giving him my heart and soul this time with my eyes wide open. I used to be the girl who was always obedient and shy, now I am the woman who is ready to be desired and loved. Can I be the woman that Wyatt needs or is this just another Hollywood game to the rich and famous?

J. Kenner is back with a new series that yes readers will make you feel sexy and desired. We have Kelsey Draper who in a way has grown from what Wyatt remembers her as but still shy. She has regrets in her life that she feels she will never be redeemed for one night of indulgence. Now have to say I for one feel she should let loose more and being with Wyatt, Kelsey is learning to live. J. Kenner did a beautiful job in showing us her insecurities but when it comes to Wyatt we see a girl blooming. She has never felt this kind of passion before in her life and it takes a beautiful author like J. Kenner to show us her self-esteem growing to something that makes her stronger. Wyatt is a complex man in a way that he is unsure what he is really looking for in life. One minute we see him as a young boy trying to be something different in Hollywood yet in a way feel like he is just wanting to compensate for someone else’s life. There was so much I felt was missing from Wyatt and loved that it was more of Kelsey and her growing in this book. All in all this is a great start to the Wicked series, one that J. Kenner did beautifully sexy.

Steal by Rachel Van Dyken

Ebook and Print

He was my everything, shared many firsts with him and now I am begging for forgiveness. I used to be huge in the entertainment business and he was the same. Only difference is I fucked up and he didn`t. Seeing him in Seaside, on this film, knowing it is because of him I might have a chance I cannot blow it. This is not just any film but one that I see what I did. I never realized I had hurt many people especially him. I don`t deserve him but he is my salvation. Can I prove to Will I am better and I still love him?

I must be crazy, stupid and helpless to think she can pull this off. When I heard Zane was in this movie only one girl came to mind to fill what she started all those years ago. Angelica Greene, the start that fizzled out before her time. I knew even back then she will be my ruin. She stolen not only my attention all those years but also my heart and soul. Seeing her again I had vengeance in my mind, to make her hurt and ashamed. Problem is my heart still wants her and the past is still there between us. Many questions unanswered but the one thing I want to know, will I ever stop loving her.

Okay have to say I want to go to Seaside right now. This town is full of hot rock stars and a movie that will make you breathless. We have Will who is one of those, what happened to that musician stories and the woman he has never forgotten. We have Angelica, who I have to say has grown up and knows what she did. What I loved about these two is that one is hiding what made him the way he is and the other is taking ownership of all her mistakes. Rachel Van Dyken again has proven that no matter what her characters did or done, love has a chance to pull them together. It was easy to see these characters come to life even seeing how they have come from their own stories. Zane is still a marshmallow addict, Alex and Demetri hillarious, Jaymeson and Pris trying to finish the movie finally Linc and Dani hot as ever. Rachel shows not just a story but a band of friends but a family taking care of each other. Loved it.

Love is everywhere, to some it is awesome and great, to Megan it is heartbreaking. She used to have love and though she is trying she has closed her heart. Other’s see this as a time for her to grieve but to one man, Liam it is time for his move. I loved that he has waited and now is determined to make her be who she used to be. Laughter and smiling is not something that comes easy for Megan and Liam knows she is better than that just needs a push to be who she used to before grief settled. The love he has for her is deep something that in a way scares her. What I loved about these two is that in a way they balance each other she makes him learn to love and he makes her feel alive again. These two by Harper Sloan was really fun to read and little Molly was a hoot to read especially all her little makeup overs. Loved it.

4 1/2 moons

Okay have to say when Jessica Lemmon first showed us Davis Price in Eye Candy I didn’t like him. Yet in his own book we see a different side of Davis Price that Jessica Lemmon hid from her readers. On the outside he is a womanizer with only preference to blondes and brunettes never a redhead. Nobody knows why he choose this way when it comes to his conquests but only one woman has come real close to a heart that Davis has guarded all these years. Grace Buchanan is nothing like the other women Davis has met and this is what makes this relationship unique and in a way crazy. I loved that we see a part of Davis nobody see’s, vulnerability which have to thank Grace for bringing this out. The chemistry they have together is not just about sex and passion but what completes them in every way. All in all it was exactly what we needed to see what made this man tick and Jessica Lemmon once again shined till the end. Loved it.

This is the first I have read by Liberty Laine and have to say it was really fun to read. We have Tillie Coletrain who is a woman bent on well ruining any chance of love she might have. Yet what I liked the most about Tillie is that she is doing this for a very good reason that a woman like her we never see doing. Then we have Officer Nate who is yummylicious for Tillie. The attraction they have is funny and in some times a hoot to see how a man like Nate can handle this little criminal. The love he has for her is strong and just what Tillie needs to balance herself. Fast, short and sexy cannot wait to see what Liberty Laine has next.

She is the one but somehow fate is against us. Or so she thinks in her beautiful crazy mind. Our friends, Maggie and Ryan are in happily bliss and I am well in a state that bliss is half the time coming or almost. I am not giving up no matter how many times we try and something happens I will have my Sarah. There is just something about her that has me interested and knowing that she is not the committed type is just wrong. A woman like her deserves to be sexed up and loved in every way. My name is Jack and though I may seem to be a ladies man Sarah has turned me to the beautiful sexy side of her. I may be taking a lot of cold showers but she is worth it once everything is aligned Blue Balls will be just a memory. Fingers Crossed.

He is crazy if he thinks I am the one for him. Jack is above all sexy, gorgeous, funny everything any other woman would jump into right away. Something though keeps making me stall and I know it is not right. I only want one thing for him and no matter how many attempts we go through I feel like I am the one with blue balls if it’s possible. Someone up there doesn’t want us together or vice versa everytime we do try something happens. I know I am not the sexy woman he is associated with but hot dang I want his body. Maggie says I am crazy to not commit to him but I want more. It is scientifically known that men can get a case of blue balls and can only go so far before he explodes, question though is how long can I go on.

Oh my god R.C. Boldt is wickedly hilarious with Jack and Sarah. I thought Maggie and Ryan were funny but these two take the cake. They remind me of a modern day Ricky and Lucy Ricardo. No matter how noble or committed Jack is somehow Sarah seems to just well mess it up. I loved this whole story line quite a unique idea from such a talented author and best part we see Ryan and Maggie with their own happily ever after continuing. Though it is a stand-alone have to say you have to read the first book, Clam Jam to really see how funny Jack is and well what brings him to Sarah. Loved it and can’t wait for more of R.C. Boldt.

Through all this though we see the woman Henry see’s and that is a strong, beautiful and speaks her own mind.

Neon pink and a house is what is making my life life turned upside down. Coming to Whynot, NC was a spur of the moment thing and now Lowe Mancinkus is a thorn on my side. I am a refined city girl and he in my world is well a country boy. I never imagined a town like Whynot actually existed with gentlemen all around and close knit families like Lowes. Everything in me tells me to stay away from him but he is making me see a side of him I am really liking. The house is important to me and Lowe is an attraction I can no longer ignore. The thing is I am not sure if I mean anything to him or is the house more important to him.

Melinda Rothschild is annoying and a sexy nuisance I can no longer ignore. I know neon pink is not what she expected but the house belongs to me. Everybody in Whynot knows she doesn`t belong but in some way she is getting under my skin. It started off as a game to convince her to go back to New York but now I cannot imagined my little town without her. We are opposite from each other but in a way we fit.

Juliette Poe aka Sawyer Bennett is one true storyteller making a small town like Whynot come to life. I loved that in the beginning Lowe and Melinda bicker more than Ricky and Lucy Ricardo but the sexual chemistry between them too hard to ignore. This is the 2nd book of this small town and these two was just a hoot to read about. I was laughing till the end and have to say Sawyer Bennett is a genius as Juliete Poe.

Hockey, only thing I know in life, well until a certain librarian came into my life, Breezy Angel. I never thought of what will happen if hockey wasn’t in my life. Commitment is definitely something I never imagined or loving someone like Breezy. Just like her name she is unique, smart, sexy and did I mention wants me Jed West, not Mr. Hockey. At least I thought so but now I am not sure about what is going on. Everybody looks at me in a way that I have to be Mr. All Star, never loosing in this game, never retiring. Being with Breezy makes me want to be more than just about the game and in a way it scares me. I know though my time is running up and just when I think I can have it all the press corners me again. One thing about being famous is, no privacy. How can I convince Breezy that I am not who she thinks I am but something more? Can I trust with all my secrets, thoughts and well deep in my heart confessions?

Jed West, sexy-Mr. Hockey, major fan girl here has Jed West in her life. I still cannot believe it that he wants to be with me, Breezy Angel. I am not the sexy, svelte or blond blue-eyed girls he usually goes out with just an average librarian making ends meet. My sister, Neve, however can pull of being is arm candy, me I just want to read books and watch Netflix. For years I have to talk to Jed West, well in my dreams and fantasies but the real thing just blows my mind away. Girls like me never get the hot hockey player or have amazing sex we get the book boyfriends and fantasies. Being with him though I am seeing a whole different Jed West that I never imagined and the little girl inside me who wishes for Prince Charming and love is coming out. Is it possible I can have Jed and all my dreams come true?

This is the first I have ready of Lia Riley and have to say I am hooked. Right from the beginning I fell for Breezy, felt a real connection to her considering how much I love reading books. Here she is a grown woman yet still dreams for the happily ever afters she reads about only to always be let down. Now Jed have to say was a little hard to like in the beginning but once we got a little more into the book we see a side of him that even Breezy is shocked to see. These two together in a way compliment each other, one is afraid about what happen in their life and the other is ready for something new. Lia Riley has a way in this book that got to me by showing us that the heroine doesn’t have to be thin or ambitious but one that is blooming with a pinch of romance she has never really felt before with the right man. Loved it and cannot wait for the next book about Neve and Tor definitely some high tension there in the next one. Lia Riley is an author you don’t want to pass up just by this book alone you can see her awesomeness.

He was my devil in every way. The one man who I cannot stay away from and now that I am deep into his life I am queen of his heart. He is the king of all kings and everybody is saying he can go down. His father, however, doesn’t care about him and is messing with me. Alexander has one goal and no matter how much my love is for him it will not be enough. I used to be just Sara Jane Grayson, college girl and now I am Alex’s queen, his woman, his life something I never expected. Just when I think our love could be enough for him the dark side beckons him. Can I be there for him when the time comes?

She is my queen, my life and my heart, Sarah Jane Grayson. I know it is wrong to bring her into my life but I could not stay away from her. My world is not one for her. The deeper I pull her into my life, the harder it is to let her walk away from her. My father is one that should not be around us but the time is almost here. Nobody knows what will happen only thing I know is that my father will not bring her more to the darkness. As a Kingwood my life is not my own and my world is not for the weak. Can I be the strong man my queen needs to have a life she deserves?

Alex and Sara, modern-day star crossed lovers fighting for a life of their own. My only problem with the book was that it jumped right away into Alex trying to solve his families past mistakes. I felt that it seemed to much about Alex and not enough of Sara, what brought her into his world. The love they have is great just didn’t feel a real connection between these two. Seemed like Sara was an object Alex couldn’t live without but was more about Alex. All in all would have loved if it was more about Sara less on Alex in this case. Again this is the first book hopefully the second will be better.
