The Long Game by BJ Bentley Review!

arcblurbthelonggameLacey-

Once upon a time, I was the knight in shining armor.
But now my armor is tarnished. Dented.
One botched mission was all it took for this hero to fall from grace.
And that was when I met him- dark, broody, magnetic.
He was broken too. The jagged edges of his pieces cut me, but I thrived on the pain.

Rafe-

I’m no good for anybody.
I know, just ask my family.
But I’m a selfish bastard, so when she walked into my club, I vowed to make her mine.
She was damaged like me. Scarred like me.
But she was also goodness and light.
And my darkness had a way of snuffing out good things.

reviewthelonggame1

The Long Game was easily my favorite of the three Syndicate novels. Rafe captured my heart and Lacey broke it. The premise of this novel was different from the other two, but just as naughty and just as captivating. I wanted more from the very minute I started reading.

Rafael Caruso is not a good guy, he’s not the hero, but he’s definitely not a villain either. His present was shaped by an ugly past, one he believed shaped his future as well. Feeling himself unworthy of love and anything good, he closed himself off from everyone, even his two friends Jensen and Aleksander. Even those two didn’t really get past his firewalls. Hacker, protecting his friends’ businesses, gamer, and also vigilante, his world changes when he meets Lacey Montgomery.

Lacey Montgomery has her own scars and demons. She carries her own weight around, carrying the guilt of a young woman’s death on her shoulders. Sent to take down Rafe, she ends up in his bed and in his heart. When she inadvertently betrays the man she has come to love, she runs away…

…but not for long.

This book is filled with revenge, love, and heartbreak. It is easily my favorite of the three Syndicate novels. It was sweet and erotic, it was dominant and submissive, it had a heart wrenching alpha and a woeful heroine. But as with all her books, for as much as these two are broken, they are equally as strong. They fought for their lives, even when they felt they should give up. They were independent, yet dependent on each other. They were broken, but mended their pieces to fit each other.

And they had AMAZING adult time ;).

Release Boost for Beauty and the Beefcake by Pippa Grant

 

 

Title: Beauty and the Beefcake
Author: Pippa Grant

Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy

 Release Date: May 17, 2018

Blurb
There are two kinds of women in the world – those I can bang, and those
I can’t.
My teammate’s sister?

She’s a can’t.

I moved in with her to protect her from a nasty ex, not to be the next guy in
line.

She’s the brains.

I’m the brawn.

She’s the fruit.

I’m the sausage.

She talks too much.

I don’t talk at all, if I don’t have to.

Should be easy to resist her.

But every minute I spend with Felicity is another minute she gets under my
skin. She makes me feel like something more than a dumb puckhead with a big
Zamboni pony. And it’s getting harder to remember why I need to keep my hands
to myself.

Beauty and the Beefcake is a vegan-friendly standalone romantic comedy
featuring a hockey player whose vocabulary is the only thing smaller than a
hockey puck, a book smart but aimless ventriloquist with too many voices in her
head, a dilapidated old house that may or may not be haunted, and no cheating
or cliffhangers.

Giving Her My Baby by Alexa Riley Review

blurbgivinghermybabyBrooks Renshaw has little time on his hands to deal with problems. But when his mom shows up after a weekend in Vegas married to someone he’s never met, he decides to do some digging. Turns out she’s hitched herself to a con artist with a trail of bad debts and abandoned women along the way. When Brooks finds out his new stepdad has a daughter, he decides to look into her, too. Only when he finds his new stepsister, he’s ready to give her exactly what she wants.

Eleanor works as a live-in baby nurse for new mothers. But her need to have a baby of her own has led her to take matters into her own hands. It’s not the ideal situation, but she can’t wait on Mr. Perfect any longer. But one phone call about a final job may change all her carefully made plans.

Warning: This book is filthy, gooey goodness, with baby-making galore! They might be stepbrother and sister, but hey, who are we to stop love? Turn the lights down low, because we’ve got some claiming to do!

reviewgivinghermybaby2

Oh. My. God. This book was everything. Seriously, it was everything. I’ve come to expect a few things from the dynamic duo that results in Alexa Riley, and they sure didn’t disappoint when it came to this book. What do I expect from her? Insta-love stories, with alpha males, drama that makes you want to bite your nails, and some caveman “I want my baby inside her” love, mixed with females that are strong in their own right, who want a family but are waiting for the right guy to give it to them.

This book was a little different, since Eleanor was almost ready to get her baby her own way, before she met Brooks. But still, she meets him, is instantly attracted to him, but questions how fast their moving, as any female would do. But Brooks is irresistible, and he gets what he wants. What he wants? ELEANOR. And he gets her.

This is a fast story, one that is dirty in all the right ways, but also has the love story too. The guy that’s so alpha, he does whatever he can to make sure she’s safe, even when he’s not around, while trying to find a way to keep her in his life, permanently. A guy not afraid to express his feelings, and a woman strong enough to recognize what’s happening and embrace it fully.

If the title didn’t clue you in: Brooks wants Eleanor to have his baby. But we all know practice is the best part of baby making ;). While fast, this book was totally worth five stars. The way Alexa Riley writes leaves me desperate for more. More epilogues, more of the couple, more baby making practices, more of everything. I feel like Oliver sometimes, begging for more!!

…But you can’t Hide

I received a copy of Run, Hide, Break & Chase, in exchange for honest reviews. Here’s my second one…

blurbhideIt was inevitable that Julia would run into Holden Saunders again. The one person she dreaded seeing and wanted to see the most.

He was still as gorgeous as the first time they had met. Muscular, tall, with his golden brown eyes that said more than what he spoke. They’re opposites in so many ways. He was closed off, and so utterly irritating the last time she was around him. He was rude and bossy but the one man she had been dreaming about for the last year.

Now that she’s back in Lakefield, Julia is getting to know the real Holden. He’s resorting to blackmail, physical dominance and isn’t listening to her protests. He’s the one that tempts her with his vulgar mouth and makes her body sing like no other man.

She can’t decide whether to punch him or kiss him. Maybe both.

They’re up against stalkers, the media, and a lot of bizarre circumstances as she makes a decision about her music career.

But he’s making his intent crystal clear: he’ll protect her, possess her, and make her beg.

Everyone hides something. Julia should know. She’s been trying to hide from her past for the last year. But this troublesome, mischievous man, may not let her hide any longer.

**Full-length standalone romance. 70,000+ words. No cheating, or cliffhangers with a Happily Ever After! Suggested 18+.

hide2.jpg

Julia and Holden were freaking hilarious. I’ve only read one other book from Jennifer Vester, but I honestly had no idea what to expect going into Hide. After finishing Run, I was excited to see how Julia and Holden got together, I just wasn’t expecting it to be a year after Run took place. But Julia needed that time to pretend to heal after everything that went down the year before. I say pretend, because I think she was just ignoring what had happened, not really dealing with it.

When Julia and Holden first met it was instant attraction, mixed with some fire and ice. Julia was all over the place hot, and Holden was literally known as Mr. Ice. Julia continues to believe they just wouldn’t work together, which is part of the reason it takes her a year to come back to Lakefield. What she wasn’t expecting, was to see the human side of Holden. The side that freaks out over her safety. The side that laughs and jokes with her. The side that is totally caveman. The side that is soft and gentle, with only her.

Julia didn’t stand a freaking chance.

One of the things I love about this book and the previous, is the humor infused within every page. Even in the times that are scary, the characters keep it from becoming too heavy. I love Julia’s constant references to having Holden admitted, and Holden flustering the heck out of Julia. These two were explosive in the best way.

Usually, I sympathize heavily with the heroine that has to deal with the alpha male-cause feminism. But in this case, I feel soooo bad for Holden. Julia would drive me to the insane asylum. But it was so funny! And Holden’s parents? I love them. (I’m hoping I see more of them in the next two books…)

My advice? Hop, skip and jump your way over to amazon to pick up this book! Join the Lakefield craziness!

Until Avery, Brynne Asher Review

arc review 1blurb

28617171_1581314518650890_2126275832067994632_o

Dreams.

I never had one. Never even knew what a dream was until a certain unassuming Carpino waltzed into my life. That day my world tilted.

It became unhinged.

I might not have been a dreamer, but she was.

She wrote the words missing from my life. Her notes ignited my heart. Her flame lit up my darkness.

Her dreams became mine and I’d move heaven and earth to give them life.

Especially when my past surfaced and threatened to kill every dream we had.
Until Avery, I had nothing.

But I’m Link Forester. I’d fight for her, for us, because right now, I have everything to lose.

Warning: The author will have a dramatic fit—Scarlett O’Hara style—if anyone under the age of eighteen touches this book.

untilavery1

YES! THE CARPINOS ARE BACK! My kryptonite is families like the Carpinos/Maysons. Big, loud, in your face, gossipy families that have your back no matter what. Brynne does an amazing job of mixing these two families together. I’d like an epilogue with the Carpinos and Maysons meeting each other for some fantasy football. That would be a hoot.

If Gus, from Until Nox, was my spirit animal, Avery is me. The good girl who doesn’t break the rules, goes to class, and definitely doesn’t use fake ID’s to get into bars. Link is the guy that owns the bar that Avery is trying to get into.
Illegally.
Avery is going to Vanderbuilt, the college near Nashville, and the Carpinos up Nebraska are not happy about that. They are supportive in the Carpino way, which means guilt trips to come visit soon, and calls to make sure she’s coming home for the holidays. Link just moved back from Vegas, and is happy to be home with his family, the Maysons. He’s not a Mayson by blood, but they like to adopt people they love.

God I love Link and Avery. And Brynne did such an amazing job with this book, it’s 5 stars. No, wait it’s 4 because it’s not long enough. I can make it 5 when Brynne writes more…

ANYWAY, I fell in love with Avery the first rambling page of her trying to use a fake to get into a bar just to hear one song. And I loved Link for bouncing her. I really loved him trying to ignore what he felt for her, but in the end he just didn’t care. Not even when Nico threatened his balls repeatedly. And Nico usually makes good on his promises. Brynne wrote this novella in her style, while managing to capture the essence of Mayson crew and beyond. She didn’t show snippets of the Mayson’s; she threw a freaking party…

…and we all remember the Star Wars Party… (if you don’t know what that means, then shame on you and go read Athica Lane right now!)

blurb

caughtintheactcover.jpg

Two callers a day.
Ten callers a week.
Over four-hundred in a year.
…and one has the power to change his life.

Liam Hardt, radio personality for an award-winning hits station in San Diego, is known for his sexy voice and pretty face. But also, for the increasingly popular segment, Caught In The Act—where he helps people corner their cheating significant others.

It’s all fun and games though until one call—one caller—hits him in inexplicable ways.

“This is incredibly forward, and…probably a lot crazy…”

When Kensley Cole calls into the show, it’s because she’s finished. She’s through with Mark’s frequent trips, his inability to care for their daughters, and with what she’s sure has been a dead relationship for the last four years. But with the help of Caught, she gets more than Mark’s mistress’s name—she gets an earful of all that was wrong with her.

She doesn’t expect to fall so quickly for the man with the dog.
The very man who had a front-row seat to the nasty things her ex shared with San Diego.

But Liam is everything Mark never was—for both her and her babies.
Still, having lived with Mark for eight years, she knows he won’t go down without a fight. She can’t very well ask Liam to sign up for that.

Too late—he’s already caught up in her.

Caught in the Act is a complete standalone in the Unexpected series. There is zero crossover with the next book, Homewrecker.

cita1.jpg

HOLY CRAPOLA GUYS. This was SO good! Liam and Kensley were so real I was so in love from the first page!

Liam is a radio personality that has a segment called “Caught in the Act” that exposes cheating spouses/boyfriends/girlfriends/partners. One morning, he gets a call from a woman, Kensley, who suspects her boyfriend of eight years and father to her two children and one unborn child, is cheating on her. Spoiler: He’s cheating. Liam is hooked from the first sound of her voice. That first phone call. But Kensley literally just ended a relationship, and Liam technically shouldn’t even be asking her out. But he does.

He’s shot down.

Kensley has known for a long time things weren’t working out with her boyfriend, Mark. Eight years, two kids and one on the way, and he didn’t want to marry her, took long “work” trips, and barely paid any attention to their daughters. She’s suspected the cheating for a long time, but didn’t know what to do. Once it’s confirmed he’s cheating, she leaves him (yay! Go Kensley!). Now a single mom, she has to find work willing to give her time off once she has the baby, and she has to find child care.

And she has to deal with Liam.

By complete accident they run into each other. Some cyber stalking happens, on both ends of course, and Liam pushes his way into Kensley, London, and Sawyer’s life. What I love about Liam, is that he knew going in there were kids involved, so first worms his way into Sawyer and London’s heart. Kensley is wary, obviously, but the connection between these two is off the charts crazy. Liam and Kensley are both instantly attracted to each other, instantly have a connection, are instantly hooked, but Kensley, after four years of disappointments from Mark, is rightfully wary.

This is a love story. But not just between Liam and Kens. This is the story of Liam and Sawyer; of London and Liam; this is the story of Liam and Kens as a family unit, learning how to do things with more feet running around and more support around the house. This is the story of Kens loving herself again and learning to trust Liam with her heart, and the hearts of her children.

No doubt, you will fall in love with this family, just like I did. This book had me near tears with the sweetness, had me smiling like a goofball, cracking up laughing, and made me so mad at Mark it wasn’t even funny. This had everything you could possibly want in a novel.

I’m obsessed. This book was a no brainer for me- 5 stars all around.

By the way, when you’re finished reading, go to Michelle Minikin’s Facebook because she has two extra epilogues that I read and they were so freaking sweet it’s not even funny.

review

That even after all these years together, I still wanted him like he wanted me.
Mind.
Body.
And Soul.”

Ok, I seriously loved this book. I’ve always wanted Susan and James’ story, since Susan told November about James asking her out everyday for two months, and about James being a playboy. But Susan Mayson is a big fat liar! In the best way possible of course. And I absolutely LOVE how CP stayed true to her writing style, true to her own voice, while effortlessly creating a story on characters she didn’t create. Susan and James are from Aurora Rose Reynolds, but CP kept their essence with her voice. It was AMAZING!!

The way the novel opens, with Susan in the present after shopping with November, with her thinking about her age and the laugh/scowl lines on her face, and showing some insecurity with the way she looks now, was perfect. I was absolutely captivated. And when they flashback, to when Susan and James first met, I was laughing, crying, and biting my lip in anticipation. What James and Susan went through just to be together, was both terrifying and so sweet at the same time. They fought to be together, and lord I’m glad they did.

CP Smith put her one liners throughout the novel that had me giggling, and thanking god I was in my house and not in public where people could see me grinning at my phone like a weirdo. I kept highlighting different quotes in the book, both parts that had me cracking up and parts that had me going awwweeee. And I love that it’s a running joke between the two that they dated for two months, or that James harassed her for two months, before they got together. Because she’s a “good girl”. And we can also blame James for Asher having all girls because “Cause God knows if he gives me grandaughters, I’ll end up killin’ someone…” and we know how that turned out! (Does anyone else picture Asher with gray hair when reading Until July because I sure did).

I give this 5 stars because I couldn’t find anything wrong with it. CP Smith stayed true to her writing style, with dual POVs and depth to the plot that goes beyond just one thing (multiple issues, crazy people, comedy to lighten the tension, with just enough tension to keep you hooked without being anxious) and I feel she truly did right by Susan and James. I think this would be the hardest couple to capture because they are the Matriarch and Patriarch of the Mayson crew, the first boom you read about, they are the ones who protect the new comers when they have no one else to protect them. Their love was the example for Asher, Trevor, Cash and Nico.

This was my second dive into the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World, and I can’t WAIT for the release of all the books!

review
Nox.jpgThis was my first K.L. Donn book, and what a way to start. I’m always a sucker for families like the Hogans. The crazy mom who wants the best for her sons, and will do whatever necessary to get that; whether they know what she’s doing or whether they like what she’s doing is another story. The brothers who are really close with each other, who all love their mom even though she’s crazy and scares the beejeeses out of them. The brothers that were raised to treat a woman right, by both their mother and their father. And the brothers that welcome their other brother’s woman with open arms. They joke, laugh, and tease each other, but they are always there for one another.

“I want to be so embedded in you that every time you move, every breath you take, you’ll think of me. I want you as consumed with thoughts of me as I am of you.” – Lennox Hogan

And Sophia needs that kind of family. Her mother is emotionally and verbally abusive to her, always cutting her down with what Soph believes to be true. She throws her father’s recent absence in Sophia’s face, throws her average grades into her face, and makes sure Sophia can’t go out and make friends on her own. Every chance Rebecca gets, she uses to make Sophia miserable. My heart hurts for the abuse Sophia suffered at her hands.

“I want you every bit as much. I just don’t know how to show it.” -Sophia Bennett

This is an insta-love story. Nox has been told by his father that when he meets the one woman he is supposed to be with, he will know. His palms will sweat and when he goes to talk to her, he will probably say something stupid. Nox doesn’t really act stupid when they first meet, he’s not mean or rude to her, but he does make her uncomfortable which is not what he wants. Sophia has her own reaction to Nox, but she doesn’t recognize it like Nox does. She’s never really felt loved in her house so it’s harder for her to recognize what she’s feeling. (And Rebecca wanting Lennox for herself does not help the situation.) Through out the journey of self-discovery and love there are stalkers, attempted murders, and so much more. It is an action packed novel that left me craving the next in the series.

I gave this book 4 stars on Amazon and Goodreads. I really enjoyed this book, and the little snippets of foreshadowing really left me wanting to read the next books in the series (which I will do once I finish this review lol). I just wish there was more depth with the abuse. I know how much being told constantly that you are stupid, with seeming evidence to support this, can break you down until you believe it, but it just felt flat at times. And there were little bits of Sophia fighting back but I just wish there were so much more! This does not take away from the novel, but really shows how embedded I was in this novel. I crave more!
