Call Back by Katana Collins

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

I’ve read to many review that say “Best book to read after Fifty Shades of Gray”. Those books, though they might be good, usually disappoint because of where that statement puts my expectations. However, I very cautiously, offer that this book made my heart full, like Fifty Shades did. When a book features or even visits the BDSM community, it gets that categorization. This book was less about BDSM, though on the surface it would appear so, and more about the heart. More about the journey of discovery. Marly and Jude are actors. Jude’s been cast in the role of a lifetime and Marly is auditioning for his leading lady. The movie is about a Dom and his newbie sub. As they prepare for the audition together, lines get blurred. From there it is a beautiful love story.

One quote from this book that will stay with me and be part of lessons I learn and teach throughout my life was,

“When a bird sits in a tree, it never fears the branch breaking. Her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings.”

This was a great read from first page to last. I love these there are no zany misunderstandings and there is no cheating, but most of all I love the happily ever after. Great read!


The Real Deal by Lauren Blakely

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

The Real Deal is a delightful, fun, ray of sunshine kind of read. April is dreading her annual family reunion as all of her well meaning relatives make it a habit to set her up with men that live close to her childhood home. April loves her career, her home and her friends in the city, but doesn’t want to hurt her families feelings. What’s a girl to do? She hire’s a boyfriend. He’s completely platonic but anything she wants him to be. Theo is an ex con, with a complicated past that just wants to earn enough money to pay his debts. He sees April and is struck, but he has never been anything but platonic with all of his clients. Can they stay professional when all they want to do is be together?

You’ll have to read the book to find out. It was so great!! 5 out of 5 stars!!

Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This book had me holding my breath, broke my heart and then put it back together again. Gabe is the star of the three brothers in this book. He and Nic have known each other since she was a child, when her parents went to work in Gabe’s home. She loved him as a young girl, he a young man. He was kind to her and sweet, until in her late teens when he, noticed, her. Their love story is complicated and beautiful.

I love both of these characters. No part of this book disappoints!

I give this book as many stars as I can!!

Devoted to Pleasure by Shayla Black

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

Shayla Black has added to this series, another couple that has stolen my heart.

Cutter and Shealyn have so many obstacles to over come, but the absolute rightness of this couple is undeniable from second one. This book follows them as they tackle every problem and fall deeper and deeper in love. I love the pacing of this story. I loved everything about it!

Insatiable by Michelle Hazen

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

Book three in this series is about Jax and Ava. Both are lead singers. Both are on the same tour. Both fight their demons. Their attraction is palpable, but their friendship steals the show.

This book and book 1 are my favorites in this series. Jax is just so… human. He’s so fallable and broken, but he just keeps moving along. I just related to this character. Not that I’m a man. Or a rock star. Or a total slut. Or an addict. It’s the inner dialog that I relate to. It’s the constant negotiation, back and forth. It’s the self negativity. Watching him grow and learn that he can be himself and not just the rock star, but truly himself, and seeing his band love him, no matter what, was just so wonderful. I love Jax. I hope this book finds its way into the hands of anyone with addiction and that they don’t feel alone.

Only read this book if you like rock star romance books with no cheating and full of love, both the friendship type and the steamy type:)

Truly great read!

In Your Eyes by J. Kenner

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

The Man of the Month series has been an injection of fun each and every month. In Your Eyes is the story of Megan and Parker. She declined his advances years ago when she had a boyfriend. Now she is very single and he hasn’t forgotten one of the very few that he wanted, but couldn’t have. You see where this is going right? Their story is fun and their chemistry is combustible. There are a few twists and turns and of visits from our favorite Man of the month, past and their significant others.

This was a fun read!
