Mr. Control by Maya Hughes

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

Based on the title of this book, I thought I was in for a steamy BDSM book. That wasn’t the case. Mr. Control was a deep, sweet, heart wrenching love story. Both Mel and Rhys had tortured childhoods. They had so many trust issues to get past. Their love showed them the way. Esme, Rhys daughter, was the real hero of the story. She won my heart immediately. I do not want to give away anything else. This story has everything, love, mystery, drama, and a beautiful happily ever after, all with no cheating and no mind games with us, the reader. I definitely recommend this book.

Rock Me by Rebecca Brooke

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

I loved this book. Mari is the lead singer in an up and coming band, trying to heal from the abuse she took at the hand of bullies in high school. Little did she know she’d be thrown together with one of the horrible bullies. Cole works to make annends for his mistakes and ultimately, they find love. Bullying is such an important topic, and this author tackles the subject beautifully. Mari and Cole are complicated characters with a lot of depth. Rock me tackles inner healing and forgives. It deals with the scars that come from being the abuser as a kids and the pain of seeing the insecurities you’ve cause, and ultimately, redemption. Great, great, GREAT, book!

It’s sweet and steamy.

Secrets and Desires by Michelle Love

I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.

Secrets and desires is an extremely well developed, beautiful love story. I fell head over heals in love with both Nox and Livia. They are both sweet and kind and honest. There was no annoying misunderstandings in this story, which was a breath of fresh air. There was no cheating (well, not with our main characters, anyway) The sub plot was exciting and extremely well thought out with zero holes in the plot. This book ended with a beautiful happily ever after which left me with no book hangover, but instead with a contented sigh. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it whole heartedly!

Hard for Her by Sienna Ciles


I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.
I’m sorry!!! I am going to stick with this book a little longer, but at 20% in I feel like yelling at the main character. She gets stood up by her date, OK. Meets a sexy stranger while she is waiting by the bar, still ok. She lets him buy her drinks and dinner, ummm, a little not ok. Yellow flags. Then, he wants to take her somewhere, after she’s had five glasses of wine. Five glasses of wine!! Very, very not ok. Then he takes her to the roof top of his apartment building, what is happening?? I’m shouting at the book…stop!!! Don’t go! At this point there is a small line thrown to the audience as she calls her friend to say she went hone with a stranger, but what Good will that do?

Then he kisses her and asks her to spend the night! Surely she’ll say no right? Some sort of inner debate in her head. No…she whispers yes. I can’t. 

Am I overreacting? Maybe…

I’m going to read a bit more… wish me luck.

Upon finishing this book, I don’t want to be so hard on this author, however, I found this book predictable and disappointing. So, needless to say, I did not enjoy this book. But someone else might. 

Damaged by Willow Winters


I am voluntarily reviewing this arc.
This story jumps in during the beginning of the end for Evan and Kat, but you don’t feel like your missing any part of the story, if that makes sense. It is such a real feeling story. I don’t want to give anything away but, so many stories would excuse the “sin” in this book. It wouldn’t be a betrayal, but it is. I love that Willow Winters takes a realistic approach with this. The way Kat responds, is exactly how I would. I was broken hearted for the entirety of this book. It ends with nothing resolved, but the promise of a second and final book. 

Damaged will rip your heart out. I’m hoping Scarred will put it back together. It can’t come soon enough.

Midnight Labyrinth by Elizabeth Hunter 

Midnight Labyrinth: An Elemantal Legacy Novel by Elizabeth Hunter
I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.
Before I even start this book

I have to say, I’m geeking out right now! I am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth Hunter’s! I am so excited to be reviewing a ARC for a series that is so amazing and so important to me. 

Ok. Must. Start. Reading!

This book was everything that I wanted and more! I feel like Ben is one of my nephews. I’ve watched him grow up. I’ve watched him hone his skills and become a loving, loyal, kind human. Tenzin, she is one of my favorite vampire characters ever. She real, and loyal. No pretense. No games. I want to be her BFF. I just read on Facebook that Elizabeth Hunter is writing the next in this series!!! I’m so happy!!! I need more Ben and Tenzin. I love how this genius author writes…I’m actually addicted! If you haven’t read the Elemental series…run don’t walk to your book store or kindle and get it!!! 

Sins and Secrets by Willow Winters


SERIES REVEALTitle: Sins & Secrets Series

Author: Willow Winters

Genre: Romantic Suspense

 

BLURB
Love is inexplicable. It makes you do crazy things. Love is blind… that’s a saying for a reason, isn’t it?

 

If anyone ever heard my story, they’d say what I did was wrong.

 

Even my closest friends. They wouldn’t understand. No one would.

 

But even my friends have sins and secrets of their own. Their stories would send chills down your spine and make you think twice about just how powerful love can be. How corrupt… how deadly.

 

I’ll do what I do best as an author. I’ll write my tale, but they aren’t safe. I won’t let them judge me without having their own dark stories unveiled as well.

 

I’ll write it all down and put a pretty little bow on it.

 

The Sins and Secrets Series of Duets is here.
 

with love,

Jules (Imperfect, Sins and Series book 1)

AUTHOR BIO 
Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!
Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
