Back and better than ever! Mr. and Mrs. was previously published under the title Anonymous Bride. First, I’m really glad the title changed. Do you know how hard it is to spell that A word? Way too hard, thank you very much. Back when Amazon was cool (LOL WHEN WAS THAT) and they had “Kindle Worlds” it was part of Fiona Davenport’s world (I don’t remember what it was?) With a title change and lots of extra bits, the story is extra sweet, extra long, and just what you need to pick you up after that crazy epic gut wrencher.

This may seem kind of crazy to you. “Arranged marriage? SOOOO 1920’s! If that!” But Megan’s story seems as real as you can get for her situation. Looking for love in all the wrong places, she thinks she finds it in a guy she met at college. Spoiler: he’s a prick. Her parents try to get her out of the “embarrassing” situation and try to handle their own “situation” all at the same time. Oh, and they also are probably sadistic and never wanted a daughter. (That’s just my opinion.)

For his part, Jordan doesn’t even know why he agreed to marry a woman he’s never met. What if she’s ugly? What if he’s not attracted to her? What if she’s like her parents? There are so many “what if’s” running through his head, he doesn’t know where he starts and where the craziness that has suddenly ended up in his life ends. But the moment he sees Megan and the words “I’m pregnant” pass through her lips, he knows one thing. Mag-pie is his.

This is a fast, insta-love story that’s full of alpha-male possessiveness that is immediately passes on to the child Megan is carrying. There’s something about anyone coming in and fully embracing a single mother/father that just hits me in the gut. Jordan is 100% in, all the way, for forever. And I loved it. The way he treated Megan, set out to protect her against the world, and the way he loves a child he didn’t help create but loves like his own, made me swoon all over those damn pages!

Megan is hesitant, as any new mother would be, to put her trust in a man she just met. She only knows how her parents treated her and the way a guy who was supposed to love her left her when he was supposed to handle his responsibilities, that’s all she has to compare this man to. She feels the connection between them, feels the pull of Jordan’s chocolate eyes, but can she trust it?

UH YES HONEY YOU CAN. YOU DO IT TO. OR I’LL TAKE HIM FROM YA. BEST BELIEVE.

Writing reviews for novellas is always hard, but especially for the super sweet ones. How much do I write? What do I say? How do I convey how I felt about the book without giving away all the sweetness? The reality is I can’t. I could go on and on about how well written this was, how melted-chocolate-gooey-cavity-inducing sweet this was, but in order to really feel this sickly sweet novel. My rating? Five fantabulous stars.

YOU GO GLEN COCO.

Also, please keep giving me your words.

Teach Me Sweetly by Abby Gale Review


When I accepted the teaching position in a town the size of my thumb, 
all I cared about was making some money until I was ready to pursue my dream. 

My time here was supposed to have an expiration date. 
My plan was simple.

Until her.
The girl with a cupcake and fascinating sadness.
Her beauty got my attention first, then her loneliness and melancholy captivated me. 
Her words and pain fed my interest, but it was her heart that sealed my fate. 

I came to this town with no expectations. 
But I didn’t know my dream and muse was waiting for me in a school uniform.

Oh Lord, guys. I gotta tell ya, this one got me. It hooked me into its depths, but it wasn’t from the first pages. In the beginning, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. Maybe that’s why it took me a little longer to get into the book than some others. It’s taboo, but that initial “OMG HE’S IN A POSITION OF POWER IDK HOW I FEEL ABOUT THAT” is completely and utterly destroyed when you realize just how much sway Eva has over Elijah.

Eva: rich girl, with a tragic past. Adrift in the midst of high school and coming of age alone in the world, she’s looking for something she hasn’t had at home or school for as long as she can remember. She’s heartbroken, looking for someone to show her she’s not broken.

Elijah: struggling writer (I think there’s a majority of us out there that can relate) who falls back on a job he doesn’t want. He comes in to sub in a high school classroom as an English teacher. He doesn’t want the job, but he’s got bills to pay. Bills that won’t get paid at a diner in Seattle.

Eva and Elijah don’t meet at school, but they do see each other again there. They met once, though nothing transpired of it. Eva’s already got a bad reputation around town, one she hasn’t earned, but one she wraps around her like a second skin in the hopes her parents will notice her. Elijah wants to peel back her layers, but uh… he’s her new teacher.

Throughout the novel, despite their initial attraction, there’s a push and pull between the two. Elijah, because he can’t mess this job up. Eva, because she thinks she’s not worth it, that Elijah is like the rest of the people in her life. But the two are inevitably drawn together. With tender, gentle moments that will make you swoon, mixed with rough, dirty, naughty “adult time” that proves that love can be raw and sweet at the same time.

Teach Me Sweetly was raw and emotional. Eva had bits and pieces of the hormonal teenager outlook, but it felt real. It wasn’t over the top or dramatic. She had reasons for every thing she did and felt. Elijah struggles with his attraction, like any grown male in his position would do, but he genuinely loves Eva and wants to help chase the shadows from her eye. He protects her in an alpha way, but shows her the tenderness and affection she’s missing.

I gave this four stars because there were a lot of tense changes that made it hard to follow. That might change with editing if there’s still some left to do, and I fully understand this is an ARC, but still, it threw me off. (I’m also not an English major or editor. So it’s possibly just me.) I’d love a second in this series, showing them struggle through the next part of their lives together.

Ultimately, this book was gripping. I loved every second I devoured this. Once you’re in it, you’re in it. And there’s no getting out.

Taking Shelter by BJ Bentley Review

Welcome to Medicine Wheel, Montana.

Would her first love still want her after she’d slept with the enemy?

Pretty and popular, Emma Jean was the belle of the ball in high school, but while waiting for her prince to make a move, she fell in love with the beast. 

Beaten down, battered, and broken, Emma Jean has finally had enough.
Cutting the ties that bind won’t be easy, especially when the enemy comes looking for her. 

Noah fell in love with his sister’s best friend in high school, but his hesitation cost him, and he lost his first love to a monster.

Determined to keep her safe, can he prove to her that belonging to him means peace instead of pain and love instead of fear?

Love is a fickle thing. It’s hard work, and it’s a lot of work. Sometimes, we find someone we think is worthy of our love. We put so much time and devotion into this person, we can ignore the signs. We may see that darkness in them, but we believe we can fix someone, help them get better; We can be the person that chases away the clouds from their eyes. Be the light to their dark. And then they change. Something in them flips. The person we fell in love with wholeheartedly is someone different, and scary.

This is what happened to Emma Jean. She long ago fell in love with the football superstar. She pushed her feelings for long time crush Noah away, and went on a date that sealed her fate. Almost seven years later, she escaped the hell that had become her life before she even realized what was happening. What once was love became bitter hatred and fear.

Noah has long harbored feelings for his Sunshine. At one time, he believed he’d have his chance when Cody showed his true nature, but by then it was too late for his Emma and their love. Seven years later, he never let that love go. Never found someone who could encompass the love he felt for Emma. When the opportunity presents itself to not only save Emma from her hell, but also give their chemistry a chance to blossom, Noah takes it.

Emma has a long road ahead of her. Not only does she need to learn to love herself, she has to discover who she is. The path she was on long ago was deviated, so what did she do with her path suddenly wide open again? Her friends don’t let her hide, and neither does Noah. But does loving Noah mean losing herself? Again?

Noah’s road is more like a mountain to climb. He has to show Noah she’s worthy of love from those surrounding her, as well as worthy of being the woman she would have been had Cody not lured her into his clutches. He’s a determined alpha, possessive, but understanding of her plight. He may be a crazed man when it comes to his girl, but he knows she needs her independence, and doesn’t try to put her in the “victim” box.

This book was emotional, with the same blending of past and present the first in the series, Coming Home, had. It was full of sweet, tender moments, as well as ones that allowed Emma Jean to take back her life and sexuality.

This was four stars instead of five for me because ultimately, I would have liked to have seen more of Emma’s past with Cody. She had no money, no job, no way to get out. But why did she fall in love with him? What drew her in? We saw few of the interactions between the couple, but I felt left out of Emma’s personal bubble and I wanted more of it.

Though that’s really no different from any other book. I always want more, and a book with a woman who suffered from abuse? You could write a whole book just on that.

She had it all figured out.

Burned by love, Arden Graham thought she know where her life was going. As an event planner at Rocky Shores Retirement home in Queens, she enjoyed her life. Bringing smiles to the faces of the elderly brought her joy. Giving them something to look forward to, gave her a sense of purpose.

Being stalked was never in the game plan. Neither was having two bodyguards who liked to boss her around. With Arden in and out of the tabloids because of her charity work for her twin brother’s company, Boston and Dare think they have her figured out.

Falling in love wasn’t the plan.

Boston Falco and Dare Waters have been best friends for more than half their lives. The decision to share one woman came as easily as when they joined the SEALs. Receiving a call from two men on their former SEAL team to protect their little sister, came as a shock. The woman herself was the biggest contradiction they’d ever encountered.

With the help of their former technical analyst, John ‘Tex’ Keegan, the hunt for Ardern’s stalker is on. The clock is ticking, twists keep coming, and soon or later somethings’s gotta give. With no idea who’s on the other end of the revealing pictures and veiled threats, the only question left is; will they be able to unravel Arden’s heart and open her up to love again once all is said and done?


Unraveling Love is the first book in International Bestselling Author K.L. Donn’s new menage series, Damaged Love. Publishing in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha World.

Read Review Repeat

Lost in His Kiss by Tracie Douglas Review!

Annabella George never thought she’d find love again, and then she met Detective Jordan Lockwood. His kisses are addicting, and his touch sets her on fire. Everything about him is right, but her heart isn’t ready to admit it.

Jordan is a man who knows what he wants, and he won’t stop until she’s his. Convincing her he’s finished with his bachelor lifestyle isn’t easy, especially when she’s the one holding back.

But one phone call changes everything, and as the New Year approaches, Annabella has a choice to make: admit what she feels or walk away forever.

***WARNING*** This book is a novella, but it is part of The Lost Series. It’s hot but not as suspenseful as the others.

GoodreadsAmazonBookbub

Surviving on caffeine most days, Tracie Douglas lives in Southern California with her husband, two children, two dogs and one really fat cat. She spends her days chasing children and fur babies, all while maintaining the illusion of sanity.

Her nights are spent toiling away at the keyboard, creating a world filled with hot men and strong women. She loves to read and write all types of book but tends to lean on the darker side of the spectrum. She’s pretty handy with a crochet hook too.

Tracie loves to hear from her readers!

Tracie Douglas, you tease. You big, giant, dirty TEASE. I HATE YOU. Ok, I’m kidding. You’re actually amazing. Please, I’m sorry. I was in an emotional place, but I’m better now, I swear. I will be better for you. Just keep writing ok?

Lost in His Kiss is a novella in a new world, NYE Kisses with the characters from Tracie’s Lost Series. So if you’re looking for something sweet, with a bit of mystery and a cliffhanger, then this is the book for you.

It’s not a real cliffhanger. It’s just the kind that teases you with the next book in the Lost Series, which is the reason for my slightly over dramatic, mean, words before. — Which I’ve already apologized for, like, idk why you’re still talking about it… Whatever.

ANYWAYS, Lost in His Kiss the short and sweet New Years story of Annabelle George and Detective Jordan Lockwood. Their story began with a hint from another book, little tidbits, and gave us more insight to the rest of the series while also giving an older (I ONLY SAY OLDER BECAUSE SHE’S NOT 20 PLEASE DON’T BE MAD AT ME) woman and man their HEA.

Annabelle, Anna to most, Belle to Jordan, is locked in the past, mourning the death of her husband long since past. Jordan is a Detective that frequently helps out Cole Securities on their cases. They meet at Anna’s office, where she is the secretary to the boys we all know and love, where she denies their connection.

Jordan, tired of waiting, takes what he wants. So really, what I meant by short and sweet was dirty, sexy, loving, and yup, still too short.

But it’s ok, because we, and I mean those of us obsessed with the Lost Series, got a glimpse into the characters, a tease of what they’re doing, how they are, what their lives are up to (and if I’m speaking as if they’re real it’s cause they are. No, don’t argue. They are.)

Do you have to read the Lost Series to understand what’s happening? Probably, no. However, I highly recommend it. There’s some information in it that might leave you scratching your head, but if it doesn’t leave you itching to read the series, there’s a problem. (Again- don’t argue.)

So five stars, Tracie, for this wonderfully well written novella, for making me fall in love with the alpha boys and the family you’ve created all over again, and TEASING ME.

Luh yuh gurl.

Unraveling Love? More like Unraveling Me... I mean HELLO. A full length menage romance? Normally, I’d skip these. I feel like I always tell myself I don’t like them, and then I read them and I’m like Oh hello honey. Especially if the author of said book is KL Donn. I think it’s no surprise to anyone that reads my reviews I’m obsessed with this woman. I found her in April 2018 and I’ve devoured everything she’s written since.

Unraveling Love is the story of Dare, Arden and Boston finding themselves a love worth of any fairy tale, amidst heartbreak, fear, and a crazy stalker. They find their love wrapped up in kitten ears and fighting through expectations society has for what love is, and what it should be. They find their forever in a story that is captivating, original, and will leave you on the edge of your seat.

If you enjoy any of these things, you’ll love this book:

  • Alpha males
  • True, heart stopping love
  • One of a kind story
  • Men that don’t know when to shut up
  • More twists and turns than a roller coaster
  • Head strong women that hide their true self behind quirky fashion and bratty behavior

Did I mention men who don’t know when to show up? Dare doesn’t necessarily know how to deal with Arden, or his feelings for her. Arden, to the rest of the world, is a spoiled brat, only worried about smiling, partying, and other things rich people are worried about. Add in some extra protective family, and she’s not really allowed to learn about the danger surrounding her.

Hence, Dare and Boston. While Dare isn’t immediately sure what the troublesome bombshell means to him, Boston is clear from the moment he sees her image. Lust at first sight, mixed with hopefulness at the idea a woman out there would be willing to accept their life style and two men, makes for an ex SEAL badass who knows he has two missions: save and get the girl.

Arden may be spoiled, but she has a heart big enough for two men, and ambitions that reach beyond her world as a princess. Though her men treat her like one, they don’t ignore the fact that she’s smart, young, beautiful, and takes danger head on… though they wish she wouldn’t.

One of my favorite things about the insta-love stories that are full-length, is that it’s more. It gives the love that seems unrealistic a chance to flourish. You see the threesome figure each other out, while they fall deeper everyday. They have each other to lean on, to talk to when they’re nervous about what the future holds.

KL Donn weaves a tale that leaves you panting and wanting more. She effortlessly (it seems) creates a world I want to be a part of. She leaves my heart yearning for that all consuming love that Dare, Arden and Boston have. She leaves me wishing I was a bit more adventurous, though not as much as Arden is.

So thank you, KL, for bringing be another novel I can’t get out of my head or my heart. Thank you for feeding my addiction to big, burly, alpha men. Thank you for bringing humor in the right places, while still leaving me anticipating the next turn you bring. And please, please, please, bring me more.
