My review of SWEET BABY JESUS by Gillian Jones

blurb

mymindseyeRyker

She is the epitome of the girl next door, but with a feistiness that makes my dick throb.
I’m drawn to her like no other. She stirs things in me I have no desire to feel, makes me long for things I shouldn’t.

This is my game. I choose the players. I never play for keeps.

I don’t believe in fate. I make my own destiny. I work hard and play harder. Luck is for pussies, karma for idiots. Me, I make shit happen.

Meeting her fucked up my plan. Threw me off my game.

I’m now face to face with my karma. Her name is Kat Rollins.

Kat

Ryker Eddison is the epitome of a player. You know the type: Mr. Get In and Get Out.

He’s all about the chase, wanting just one night. Everyone knows this, I know this. Still, I find myself craving him, my greedy body betraying what my heart and mind already know: he will only bring me pain.

He’s the guy that girls like me should avoid. I’m smart, I know better. But when I’m with him, I feel things I’ve never felt before. Things I never knew I wanted.

I can’t deny it … I like the chase. The high is explosive but I’m afraid if I give in, I may end up losing more than I can handle: my heart.

review

mymindseye2

Ok first: JESUS, MARY, AND JOSEPH, I need to go to CHURCH after reading this book. I curse like a truck driver, but I think Ryker’s got me beat for f bombs. And Lord that man could dirty talk. The amount of times I took the Lord’s name in vain and squealed “OH. MY. GOD” while reading will surely mean a ton of penance for me. I mean JESUS. Kat was a goner before she even realized it.

And I loved every single minute of it.

I’ve read so many good books lately, and I’ve got a TON of reviews I need to get done (including Natasha Madison’s Perfect Love Story which freaking broke me) but instead of doing all the crap I need to do, I read My Mind’s Eye and finished it at 2:30 in the morning and immediately wanted to write this review. That’s how good this book is. I knew when I read Fighting Weight that I loved Gillian Jones. So much so that after one book, I found out she was going to be at the Books by the Bridge event in NYC this year, so I bought my ticket. Literally, just to meet her. (Am I a crazy stalker or is she just that awesome of an author?) So, while procrastinating writing reviews, I decided to grab My Mind’s Eye (which is available on KU-HOLLA). I made a couple mistakes while reading though.

Mistake #1: I was unprepared- so I’m preparing you. Grab your big girl panties, a glass of wine, and settle in for a read that will have you not wanting to put the book down. At all.
Mistake #2: I was expecting a slow burn, and it was, but LORD THESE TWO BURN. Grab yourself a fan too, with that glass-er bottle, of wine because you’re gonna need it. Kat & Ryker fight their attraction to each other for so long, both denying how they’re feeling, that when these two hit the sheets, I’m pretty sure my house could have burned down around me and I wouldn’t have noticed.

Ryker is a huge playboy, not looking to settle down with any one woman. Kat is just dealing with a nasty break up, and looking to relax after dealing with a fire in her dorm the previous year. Ryker freaking growls when he accidentally catches her changing one day (*fans self*) and loses all sense of the English language. Kat pushes him away, not sure she can do the one-and-done thing her best friend thinks will be good for her. Ryker isn’t ready to lose his playboy ways just yet. Though these two fight it, they both end up together when Ryker decides he’s not going to sit around and let someone else take his girl(*sprays water on self*). Ryker is one hell of an alpha male; jealous, possessive, but also caring and supportive of Kat’s dreams. He helps her study and wants her to continue having a good relationship with her friends. Kat is goal oriented, and definitely not a damsel in distress; when Ryker loses his stuff at work, Kat is not afraid to tell him to back off. She may be insecure, but she’s not weak.

In case you couldn’t tell by anything I’ve said previously, I LOVED THIS BOOK. It is so freaking amazing, and it’s safe! By safe, I mean that Ryker isn’t out trying to bang other girls to get Kat off of his mind; and when he does try, Kat seems to be there reminding him of exactly why he hasn’t even wanted to touch another girl since he met Kat. Kat tries to push him out of her mind, and when she does try to get Ryker out, he is right there to remind her that it ain’t happening.

I’m pretty sure I could fangirl over this book ALL NIGHT but you will just have to read it to see. And when you do, message me so we can talk about it. I’m not even kidding.

“I love alpha males…. Yes I know Alpha males are the in thing but they need to be done right and in this book Drake is perfect.” -Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Until Series

“Absolutely loved! I’m a sucker for the over the top, crazy in love alphas. You give me one of those and I’m sold.” -Harper Sloan, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Corps Security Series
Alexa is just your average college junior, attending classes and piloting Mile High Club charter flights. Boys haven’t been on her radar for a couple years after a disastrous breakup with her high school sweetheart. Her plans to focus on school hit a bit of a snag when she meets bad-boy Drake Bennett and he sets his sights on making her his own.

rochellepaigeI absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me “About time!”

 

review
pushtheenvelope1.jpg

I am late to the game when it comes to Ms. Paige. I just recently found out that Rochelle Paige and Elle Christensen together write as Fiona Davenport(that has an AWESOME Mafia series that I adore and re-read every chance I get!) This book was free on Amazon so of course I grabbed it up. It’s got some of my favorite things: alphas, college romances, and girls that say HELL NO when a guy is being a dick. And Drake can be a dick of epic proportions.

Alexa and Drake feel an instant pull towards each other, but due to some miscommunication, Drake is rude to Alexa because he thinks she is with someone else. But when Drake finds out that Alexa is very single, he makes sure to wrap it up really quickly.  He makes sure every guy on campus knows there together. And short of tattooing across her forehead, he shows Alexa he’s in it for the long haul. Convincing Alexa of this is a different story.

I absolutely adored Alexa’s take-no-shit attitude and Drake’s alpha-machoness (is that even a word?). I loved Alexa’s relationship with her Dad, and her relationship with her best friend’s family. And I loved the drama! It was the kind of drama that makes you want to bash in Drake’s head, and shake Alexa, but also know that Alexa made smart decisions, while Drake was too busy coming to terms with his excess of emotions.

Plus, Alexa can fly a plane (thanks dad!) and uses that to pay for school. How? Mile-High Plane rides. That’s right ladies and gents, Alexa has a program that lets rich people pay to get their rocks off in the air for a few hours. Not only can Rochelle Paige write a really good book, she’s an entrepreneur. I don’t know if things like this exist, but they should.

And lord, that snippet at the end, it gives you Drake’s POV for some very important scenes. Basically, I loved everything about this book and it is FREE on Amazon! So go get your copy no!

Shoo! Go!

Until Mallory by Ella Fox Review

blurbuntilmalloryMallory McDonald might have bitten off more than she could chew when she moved to Nashville. That could be because the temporary rental she’s in is a dump, or it might be that the police just kicked in the door of said rental and came in with their weapons drawn.

Officer John Wright is stunned to realize the girl standing in front of him with her hands up is the former neighbor he’s pined over for years. Now that he’s finally got her within his sights, he plans never to let her go.

authorellafoxUSA Today Bestselling Author Ella Fox has learned a bunch of stuff along the way but the most important of all those things is that anything is possible when you try. In 2012 she took a big leap of faith and published her first book, Broken Hart. Since then she’s written fifteen more full-length books and several novellas– and every one is a reminder that you can live your dream as long as you work for it.

Ella’s favorite things are music, movies, traveling, The Foo Fighters and, of course, reading. This isn’t a surprise considering the fact that her mom is USA Today Bestselling Author Suzanne Halliday.

mallory2.jpg

Every time I read one of these books, I swear it’s my favorite. They literally just keep getting better and better. My standards for writing and love stories have also gotten higher. Ella Fox created a story that was so sweet, so beautiful, and it fit right in with the Maysons.

John is a cop who moved away from Chattanooga to escape the feelings he’s had for his neighbor for over two years. He wanted to take her out, treat her right, but his neighbor’s strict grandmother refuses John access to the woman who stole his heart after a brief meeting.

Mallory has lived with her strict grandmother since she was three years old, and has tried to adhere to her grandmother’s rules. She was always a good girl. She met John and felt an instant connection with him. She always wondered why he never asked her out, never realizing he tried to. A month after John left Chattanooga, Mallory’s grandmother passes away, leaving her on her own. She works her butt off before deciding to move to Nashville, where John is, and try to connect with him.

And they connect in an explosive way. I thought Brandon and Asher moved their women into their houses fast, but I seriously think John wins. And Nico wins his bet- you’ll get the reference if you go grab the book. (Nico has lots of bets…)  And I freaking LOVE that John has a cat with an attitude. My list of swoon-worthy alphas is seriously single dads, men with pets that they treat like prince/princesses, and guys with tattoos. (Can you guess who my favorite Mayson brother is?)

I loved and adored this sweet story. Mallory is the absolute cutest, and John is so freaking swoon-worthy. He is so adorable, and hot, and everything. I’m going to stop babbling now, and let you go pick up the book yourself, but SERIOUSLY it’s 5 stars.

Until Sunrise by Sarah O’Rourke Review

blurb

Michelle Buchanan wasn’t looking for the perfect man to fill her life.  She’d settle for Mr. Right Now to fill the empty spot in her bed – just someone that could help her with the little problem of her lingering virginity.  But when Luka Templeton invaded her blind date and suddenly begins taking over her every waking thought, she realizes that she is in way too deep with the confident alpha male currently wreaking havoc on her life.

Join us on this romantic comedy romp as Chelle and Luka find their way to happily ever after!           
Romantic comedy.  Releases on April 3 as part of Aurora Rose Reynold’s Happily Ever After Kindle World.  (And if you’ve read Aurora’s Until series, you’ll know Chelle from Until Ashlyn!)

review

untilsunrise2.jpg

Not going to lie, even a little bit. I had another book I wanted to read today, because I’ve been waiting months for it to come out… and then the Happily Ever Alpha crew released a day early and I dropped everything to start reading… It’s 3AM and I’m up reading!

When I first heard this story was going to be titled Until Sunrise, I really didn’t get it. Most titles in this crossover series are pretty obvious- not this one. Once I got into it, I knew why it was. And I FREAKING LOVE IT! Luka has a dirty, foul mouth that goes well with his previous player ways (though he wasn’t that much of a player), and Michelle has some serious issues with men and has a crazy case of RBF. Together, sunrise means something special.

Though I commend them on their dedication to sunrise, I’d stab someone who wanted to meet at sunrise. I think I could give Ashlyn or Chelle a run for their money on morning grumpiness.

Michelle isn’t looking for her boom, in fact she doesn’t even believe in it. She’s just looking for a guy to fill some of the loneliness she feels. Luka takes one look at her and knows shes the One for him. His father fell in love with his mother in a split second, and told Luka the story (which is super cute by the way and absolutely amazing) so when Luka saw Michelle, he knew. He wasn’t afraid, but excited about the fact he found the love of his life. Chelle was a little less excited about the feelings she felt.

And Luka comes off as crazy, and I love the homicidal tendencies Chelle tends to have towards him. I totally get it. How Michelle talks her self off the ledge, many times, is absolutely fantastic.

I smiled through the entire reading of this book. Luka’s nickname for Michelle is so sweet, and his over the top alpha is awesome. He tries understanding Michelle, giving her the support she needs, but he also doesn’t back off. And Michelle gives it right back to him when he’s being too much (yes feminism!)

All the drama in this book comes from Chelle and her fear of being hurt by Luka. While I would have liked a little less craziness from her, I still loved this book.

Thank you Sarah!!!

review

untilyouremine1.jpg

I think I have a toothache and need to go to the dentist. This book was so freaking sweet it’s not even funny. This wasn’t my first Jenika Snow book, so I was expecting something super sweet. But honestly, this was so much better!!!

Cora and Xavier have known each other for a long time, and Xavier was Cora’s protector. When Xavier went into the military service, Cora was hurt but she didn’t show it, knowing Xavier needed to do this. For eight long years, both Cora and Xavier have held their feelings inside, not wanting to ruin their friendship, not sure how to express what they’re feeling. But when it’s time for Xavier to come home from the service, all bets are off.

If there is one thing you can expect from Jenika, it’s short, sweet, and sappy. Cora and Xavier’s story doesn’t include drama, just some uber steamy love scenes, and some men not afraid to show their emotions. Not having drama does not mean their love is less intense. They just both know what they want, and when they decide it’s time to make it happen, nothing can stop them. One of the things I love about Jenika, and this romance, was they met young but knew what they wanted, and didn’t try to go for something else. They both saved their virginity for each other. (Wait, can you make virginity plural? Virginities?)

I also love the inclusion of the Mayson family. It was simple and sweet, just like everything else in this book. They welcomed Xavier back with open arms, and it was so nice to get that snippet.

And double epilogues! *swoon* I’m of the firm belief that the more epilogues, the better. Reading this Happily Ever Alpha crossover is like getting 16 epilogues while falling in love with 16 new couples. What’s better than that honestly. Ok, bottom line? GO READ THIS! (On April 3rd, and yes I have a countdown set up on my phone. Just 9 days left!)

Until Nox, Happily Ever Alpha Review

arc review 1blurb

28698542_1984195591846450_4268691140309543124_oNot all heroes are good guys.

With a body count on his soul and blood on his hands, Killian Nox lived in the gray. Ruthlessly single-minded, if he wanted something, it was his. And when it came to the gorgeous lass with a fiery attitude, he didn’t just want her.

He needed her.

With southern-bred manners and a snark all her own, Augusta ‘Gus’ Allan was a connoisseur of cheap wine, delicious Mexican food, and good TV. Unfortunately, her taste in men wasn’t as well-developed. When her knight in shining armor turned out to be a douche in tinfoil, Gus never expected her real hero to be a sexy-accented, tattooed beast of a man.

But he was exactly who she needed.

Gus had no clue how comforting a monster in the dark could be…

Until Nox.

Warning: Recommended for readers 18+ due to awesome things like adult content and language… wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

This Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World novella is a crossover of The Hyde Series and Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Until Series. It features glimpses of familiar faces from Hyde and Seek, Best Kase Scenario, and Until November. However, it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Goodreads.

author

Layla Frost has always been a rebel. A true badass.

Growing up, Layla used to hide under her blanket with a flashlight to read the Sweet Valley High books she pilfered from her older sister. It wasn’t long before she was reading hidden Harlequins during class at school. This snowballed into pulling all-nighters after the promise of “just one more chapter”.

Her love of reading, especially the romance genre, took root early and has grown immeasurably.

In between reading and writing, Layla spends her free time rocking out (at concerts, on the couch, in the car… Anywhere is a stage if you get into it enough), watching TV (the nerdier the better!), and being a foodie. Though she lives in NY (the state, not the city), she’s an avid Red Sox fan.

untilnox3

I forgive Layla for being a Red Sox fan simply because this book was amazing. This was my third dive into the Happily Ever Alpha world and they just keep getting better. I haven’t read most of the authors involved in this Kindle Worlds crossover, but I have read Layla and she does not disappoint with this. I was obsessively and unapologetically checking my email to see if I received an ARC for this.

This is the story of Killian Nox and Augusta Allan. Gus finds her sorta boyfriend cheating on her and needs a place to stay, and Nox graciously lets her stay in his apartment while he’s out of town. Nox’s Scottish/Irish accent are panty-melting hot, and he does what he can to stay away from her. It lasts a week. In that week, Gus watches Nox’s house and his dog, and makes a mess. She is inexplicably drawn to the “beast” from the moment they meet but she doesn’t know why.

I loved this book for many reasons. One, we get to see snippets of the Mayson clan, and get to see Nico when he thinks the boom is bullshit *awweee*. Also, we get to see the Hyde clan again, with Piper being Piper and Harlow running circles around Kase. Get to see the guys come together and gossip, dishing out advice since they know relationships now.

One of my favorite things is Nox himself. He’s an enigma I’m still trying to figure out, though I’m not sure I will. He is not a good guy, and doesn’t pretend to be, but he’s not a bad guy either. In fact, I Gus says he’s “Batman levels of gray” and I think that’s the perfect description. Gus doesn’t try to change him, she accepts him (after some explaining) and they work well together.

And Gus, she admits she’s petty. I’m pretty sure she’s the character I’ve connected with most in a book. Between the pettiness, messiness, and the crazy leggings, I think Gus is my spirit animal. She is so petty, she went to MIT just to prove someone wrong, and that’s seriously someone I need in my life.

Before I keep talking about this book, because I’m 100% sure I could talk about it all night, I’m going to leave it here saying this book was AMAZING!! 5 Stars! This book releases April 3rd as part of the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle Worlds, so mark your calendars!

Back to Her by Dani Wyatt Review

blurb

38598834Going to prison and taking the fall was my gift to Mia. How was I to know her father would disappear with her and I would lose her forever? After serving my five years I’m finally out, but bars or no bars, I’m still in hell.

I never believed in miracles until today. Because I’ve found her. All plush softness, sorrowful eyes and lips that call to be kissed. She’s right here in the same place I’d met her all those years ago when she was too young. Before I could touch her.

There is no force on heaven or earth that will take her from me again. No force that will keep my hands off her now. I will take her. I will do as I please with her because she is mine. Now and forever. God help us both.

Author’s Note: Take five years waiting for her to be legal. Then another five locked up in prison and you’ve got one powder keg of alpha naughtiness waiting to explode. This love at the speed of light novella will warm your heart and your nether regions. All you expect…safe, smutty, swoony and happily ever after.

author

From the bio of Dani Wyatt on Goodreads: 
Since I was a little girl, I’ve made up stories. I would lay in my bed at night and before I knew what a trope was, I would make up these trope filled stories. Boy sees girl, boys falls for girl, boy saves girl….happily ever after. As I got older, the stories turned steamier and more intricate, but the basics never changed.

Now, my books are still full of romance but the naughty bits are naughtier, my hero’s are obsessed alpha types and my heroines are quirky, real women who come in all shapes and sizes.

So, sit back, banish the real world and get lost in some over the top romance with a heaping helping of hot. xoxoxo

Amazon:
Dani Wyatt used to feel bad about having such dirty thoughts. Luckily, one day she decided to starting writing them down. Her uber alpha heros have a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Her heroines are intelligent, quirky and worry about having too much muffin top. With her books, you can count on a heaping helping of HOT and always a happily ever after.

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

Friend her on Facebook here.

review

3-stars

I’ve read quite a few Dani Wyatt books, and I’ve always loved her OTT Alphas, but Walker just didn’t do it for me like some of Dani’s other alphas. The book started out strong, but eventually Walker and Mia just bothered me.

First, I don’t know what the heck Walker did to make money. When he first got out of prison he said he still had a lot of money, but that he needed more. But then later he doesn’t have enough money to help Mia and her Nana? And then there’s Mia, who has been kept inside her whole life by her father and no longer wants to be trapped hoping a man could take care of her. Admirable, but the first thing she does is lie to Walker and meet with a creep. A creep she didn’t like before her father disappeared with her. There was also a lot of unexplained things in the book, and it made parts of it feel rushed. Then there seemed to be unnecessary drama, that was resolved very quickly.

I still gave this book three stars because Dani always delivers on at least two things: the quality of writing, and super steamy love scenes. While the flow of the novel wasn’t my favorite, I can’t complain about her style of writing. While Walker wasn’t my favorite alpha that Dani has created, he is still Over The Top and completely in love with Mia. He knows what he wants, and waiting ten years to get it doesn’t stop him.

This is a short, insta-love story available free on Kindle Unlimited. Goodreads.

39209389She needs a fake fiance and I’m just the guy to play the part. 

I moved from Ireland to New York City to pursue a career in acting.
My family has a lot of money, but I want to make it on my own.
One day I’m at Starbucks, minding my own business, studying for an audition.
Suddenly a beautiful, curvy stranger heads straight to my table.
Her ex cheated on her with her best friend, she says.
And they’ve both just entered the coffee shop!
Please pretend to be my boyfriend so I don’t seem so pathetic, she asks.
Well, I’m an actor, aren’t I?
So, how can I resist the pleading request from those pretty hazel eyes that match her name?
I’ll do her one better – I pretend to be her fiance.
Soon, we’re caught in a game of one up-manship with her snotty ex friend.
Like all my acting gigs, I play this one very well.
It turns out that Hazel brings me luck – and I do the same for her.
But this is all just pretend, right?
We’re not really going to get married on St. Patrick’s Day like we keep telling everyone, are we?

Maybe I’m playing the role a bit too well, because I find myself believing it’s real.

Lucky Charm is a full length standalone novel with no cheating and no cliffhangers, but with a very happy St. Patrick’s Day and ever after, and a whole bunch of Irish flavored steam.
