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!!!

Mr. President by Ivy Jordan

Mr. President by Ivy Jordan
Quinn crushes on Adam, her brother’s friend since she’s 12. Now that he is running for president, and she’s all grown up, her childhood crush turns smoldering l. I thought this was going to be to similar to the America Pesident,but it wasn’t. I enjoyed the way the story evolved and have to give this one an A+.

I love this series of novellas. They are a nice pick me up through my day!

The Pawn,                                  The Knight,                                The Castle The End Game TrilogyBy Skye Warren

I never do this, but I am reviewing these 3 books together for the simple reason that I could not wait to read the next book! I would finish one and the next second had to move to the next. This trilogy is captivating. There is no emotion left untouched. There is scorching chemistry between Gabriel and Avery. He is everything you want in your male lead. Handsome, loyal, bad turned goodish, wealthy, but most of all, loyal. Avery is smart and strong and kind and loyal. I love that there is not one unnecessary word in these books. The story follows Gabriel and Avery through so many twists and turns. Some of this story takes on a phycological thriller kind of feel. You need this story in your life!

Stop reading, go and get it! And, your welcome;)

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!!!

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!
