Different this time by Tess McCallum

I received an ARC for an honest review.
This is a second chance kind of romance. It was a nice beach read. I always feel bad when couple lose so many years together because of being misinformed. It makes me sad. However, in the end we have our happily ever after and all is good.

Our first dance by P. Nelson

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Calla and Flynn are an interesting pair. Calla is a psychiatrist interviewing for a job at Flynn’s D/s club, to evaluate members. They are both in the lifestyle and there is palpable attraction between them from the beginning. Ok… let the games begin! This book was a walk through the BDSM life style. It was a fun, highly erotic read that ended on a cliff hanger!!! Book 2 can’t come quick enough!

Balance Check by M. E. Carter

I received an ARC for an honest review. 

This is book 2. Book one ends on a cliff hanger where Greg is forced to separate from Elena because his crazy ex up and left an he has to go to be with his daughter.

Is this book good? Are these books worth you time? Will these new characters add a smile to your heart and become life long literary friends?

The answer is yes, yes, and yes. I read this book in hours…I couldn’t put it down. It was just that sweet. My 8 year old wanted to watch Wheel of fortune while cuddling. I loved it, but of course my kindle was out and my friends were right there with me. I know I sound crazy but I swear I’m not. It’s just, I haven’t read a lot of books about the big and small things that happen when you are at the stage of life when kids are everywhere. When your relationship with your significant other is intertwined with…life. I loved it!

Getting a Grip by M. E. Carter

I received an ARC for an honest review.
The opening scene is two best friends clothes shopping. I related to these women immediately. Both had body image problems. Both were commiserating the highs and lows of mother hood and for the one friend, the intricacies of being a wife for a long time. I felt for Elena, our heroin of the the story. She is shopping for a dress for her three year olds birthday party. Her cheating ex husband is bringing the tramp he left Elena for, and married. Then she meets Greg. This super adorable single dad is smitten with Elena right away. They take their relationship slowly. This story is so sweet. Then about three quarters of the way through, they are together. Like together together. And that is when we see a mans poor body image. I’ve very rarely read a book like this, but it’s great to watch them encourage each other.

Annnnd, warning, it ends on a cliff hanger. This was seriously such a heart warming read! Now on to book 2!

Absinthe by Winter Renshaw

I received an ARC for an honest review.
At the start of this book, you are knee deep in an awkward situation. Halston (great name by the way) is the person that is just larger than life, and doesn’t follow the rules. Her principal, a total rule follower and of course, an enforcer, has just found out that his hot phone sex, anonymous, relationship has been with this, his student! 

Sounds good right?!

The problem is that her nasty, jealous cousin makes up all sorts of lies and gets both of them in a crap ton of trouble. This is where I get frustrated. Because chapter after chapter is, “one year later” and “another year later”. I’m so upset. Why so much wasted time?

Don’t want to give to much away, but this book had me hook line and sinker! Their relationship was so beautiful. I loved that, although she had a tragic childhood, it wasn’t all about that. She didn’t need him to save her, she did that all on her own. I really loved this book!!

Something Tattered by Sabrina Stark


I received an ARC for an honest review

     Let me start by saying I LOVE Melody!!! I love her! I wanna be her best friend and go for coffee! And Joel…don’t even get me started. So sweetly swoonworthy (yes that’s a word!) I can’t stand it!!

Melody is daughter of a famous artist that has passed away. She’s a celebrity and liveson an estate, but is destitute.

The closest thing she has to a brother is in charge of her estate for a few more years and he is aweful. 

     As payback for embarrassing him, the “brother” sets up Joel for a huge embarrassment. That’s how Melody and Joel meet. They are so sweet together. Joel, his whole life was told he wasn’t good enough. So between his low self esteem and the evil “brother”, these two have a lot to over come. I will warn you, this book ends on a cliff hanger. I need the next book ASAP!

I received and ARC for an honest review.
This is book 2 in the Trident Code series. Unfortunately, I didn’t read book one, but the description I read said it could be read as a stand alone, so I’m all in!! 

Sara and Kyle meet in a bar. Their chemistry is stinking hot! She is a professional cheerleader but tells him that she’s a college student and cheers for school. He is a Seal but tells her he plays football professionally. Not exactly starting out on solid ground. But when fate steps in, after he didn’t call the day after their explosive night together, they are on the same page. This was a fun, quick read with no cheating and a happily ever after…life is good!
