Rule Him by Gisele St. Claire

I received an ARC for an honest review.
This is one of the smartest student/teacher romances that I have ever read. I fell in love with both characters right away. Candy…bravo to Ms. St. Claire for that fabulous name! Candace Appleton! I love it!!! She is to mature for any of the boys her age. In walks the new English teacher. They have instant chemistry, physically and of intellect. She wants to be a writer and he recognizes her passion from their first study session. Their romance plays out so organically. Of course being a forbidden love type of book, they run into obstacles, but again, so beautifully written. It is with a satisfied sigh that I whole heartedly recommend this yummy book!

Small Town Scandal by Daisy Prescott


I received an ARC for an honest review.
I have never read anything by Daisy Prescott, and I usually don’t like second chances romances. But this one won me over. I usually get caught up in the heart ache and the time lost. The story was just so believable. Kids, pressured apart by parents and familial stupidity. Now coming into their own. They tackle their feelings, the town, her reputation, and how she feels she is seen. Every chapter was titled with a derogatory name for a woman such as slut, easy, etc. That was very sobering for me. It hurts to think of the double standards for men and women. The author did a great job of driving this point home.
The love story was beautiful. Their rekindling was heart warming and full of chemistry. All in all, this was a really fun read!

Black diamond by Victoria Quinn

This is book 2 in a trilogy. While book one ended on a cliff hanger, book 2 did not. And for that, a big thank you to Victoria Quinn!!! I loved this book!! The relationship between Calloway and Rome is so natural and beautiful. This books follows Rome and Calloway as they progress in their relationship. He still hasn’t revealed his true nature as a Dom and his ownership in a BDSM club. As he hopes to ease her into the lifestyle and eventually show her this world, she falls in love. The question is, is the Cal he is with her the real Cal or is it his dominant nature.
I LOVED this book!!!! And I just saw book 3 is out, so bye!!!

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.

Sweet Sinful Nights by Lauren Blakely

Sweet Sinful nights by Lauren Blakely
This book was so great! 

Shannon and Brent fall madly in love. Youthful mistakes separate them. The challenge, can they find eachother again after a decade apart? Their story just spoke to me. It satisfied the hopeless romantic that I tend to be, and left me with a satisfied sigh as I read the last page. I couldn’t put this book down, and when life, my job, my family, needed me to put my kindle down to tend to them, I found my mind wondering to the story. Missing the characters. Wanting resolutions for the obstacles in their way.

I honestly love this book. 

I only got slightly mad when Brent did something, just so, male. Then Shannon just forgives him. It’s the right thing, but man I wanted her to make him suffer a little. But that’s my only complaint!
