Trust by Kylie Scott

I received and ARC for an honest review.

This book starts out with a literal bang…a robbery that is frighteningly real. My heart was pounding as if I was living through the robbery with our heroin, Edie. The story progresses so beautifully and is perfectly paced. John and Edie meet during the robbery. He saves her life, and is the most unlikely hero, as he is the local drug dealer. The robbery changes both of their lives forever. I love the relationship between John and Edie. I love the relationship between Edie and her mother. This story moved me. Kylie Scott has a huge fan in me!! This is a stand alone, although I would love to read more about their best friends!!!

Daddy’s Bought Virgin by Roxeanne Rolling

I received an ARC for an honest review. 

The title makes this sound like it’s going to be this completely taboo subject matter, but it is nothing like that. 
Olivia is down to her last dollar thanks to her gambling addicted father. David needs to clean up his image to keep his daughter away from her drug addicted mother.Put the two together and voila, you have the makings of a beautiful relationship.There are a lot of twists and turns, and sometimes I just want to punch David, but he wins me over in the end. 

This is a steamy, nice, read.

Fallen Crest Forever by Tijan

Fallen Crest Forever by Tijan
I’m not giving anything away, I think, but since it’s in the first paragraph…OMG, she said yes!!!!!! I was on pins and needles and had to wait a whole 8 hours for her answer!!! (Going from the end of Home to Forever).

I’ve been trying to figure out why I am so in love with this series, with this book. The loyalty has always been a reason. The way Mason, Logan, and Samantha have bonded and stayed together is beautiful. But in this book, I think what stands out to me is that they are, what every person who has ever been bullied, who has ever been truly alone, wishes they had. Not many have experienced the type of aloneness that Sam had. A parent left, boyfriend cheating with her best friend, friends desert her, and then she moves in with the enemy. For those of us that have experienced it, we know Sam’s responses are spot on. We wished there was a Logan to make us laugh and watch our back as a brother. We wish that our soul mate was there too, to end the utter loneliness. Sam is rescued and in return rescues her new step brother and fiancé. I love this series! I love these characters! I’m going to miss them, but I think that will only make me do a re read sooner! The end of this book and this series is utterly satisfying. I finished 4 hours ago and am still tearing up, in a good way. Thank you, Tijan for this beautiful world you created for us!

It rates a 10 ++++ on everything!!

Fallen Crest Home by Tijan

I cannot say enough about the series or about the sincerity that Sam and Mason are written with. I fell in love with Mason and Logan and Sam as an unlikely family. Sam’s mother and Mason and Logan’s dad are in a relationship and getting married. Sams mother is a horrible person and terrible to Sam. When the brothers realize how neglected and alone Sam is, Mason and Logan embraced Sam and protected her from book one. Their bond is so beautiful. This book focuses on Sam and Mason, with Logan as the comic relief. I love the honesty of Sam! She owns everything about herself. She even owns her self doubt. She doesn’t lie and gives integrity a new meaning. Same goes for Mason. He is fiercely loyal.No nonsense. With Mason you know who he is. I love them both! I love this book from start to finish and every word in between.

Mr. Sherrif by Ivy Jordan 

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Ivy Jordans books are like the equivilant of having the tastiest piña colada on a beautiful late summer day. You just feel all warm and happy inside. Mr. Sherrif was a fun, sweet, sexy read that gave me a nice little end of the week pick me up. Naomi and Carter are freaking hot from minute one! This book will not diappoint you!

Villain by Jackie wang 

I received an ARC for an honest review.
This book was definitely an action packed roller coaster. It’s a story of an abused boy turns into a homeless young man, to a betrayed man, to a convict. He falls in love with the last person he ever thought, his enemies daughter, in the midst of trying to use her to get his revenge. This was a gritty kind of read. My heart broke repeatedly for our villan. As his love interest or victim for most of the book, knew deep in her heart that she was a mark. I got so carried away, I found myself yelling at my kindle.But ultimately, it was a beautiful story of forgiveness and the power of showing mercy.

Always mine by Ruth Cardello

I am a huge fan of Ruth Cardello! So I was totally jazzed when I saw this book and nabbed it up like a kid in a candy store. It did not disappoint!!! Emily and Asher have instant chemistry even though they could not be more different. It’s a love story that reminds me of Anna and Christian’s, minus the toys. I love how Emily falls for his family and they for her, just as much as the all consuming passion between Emily and Asher. The story is so real. To often I read and feel a disconnect because the emotions are not something that I think would really happen, but not in this story. I felt connected to Emily’s fierce loyalty and commitment to her dreams. Sorry I’m being so cryptic, but I really don’t want to give anything away. This was a home run, a touch down, and a hole in one!! Can’t wait to read the next!
