Three Broken Promises (Drew & Fable #3) by Monica Murphy

Out December 31, 2013

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life.

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

Turning, I head straight for the door, praying he'll chase after me, grab me, kiss me senseless.

At the very least, yell at me to stop, beg me to listen to his explanations. I want that glimpse into his soul, his heart. The wall he's built around it is made of steel, absolutely impenetrable, but I want to be the only one who can bust it down.

Yet he does nothing. Absolutely nothing. Just lets me go, as usual, without saying a word.

The Sweetest Game (The Perfect Game #3) by J. Sterling

 This is the third (and final) installment in Jack & Cassie's story! 
“It’s one hell of a sledgehammer to the chest when your baseball career comes to an end. It’s like you finally realize that baseball never loved you back. All the sleepless nights, the hours spent at the gym trying to stay fit, the conditioning, the training, the mental preparation, the holiday’s missed, the birthday’s passed, the memories you didn’t get to make with your family…all for what? It’s not like baseball lost any sleep over you. She didn’t stay awake for nights on end trying to figure out how to make you a better player. She didn’t care. Baseball’s a business. A sport. A game. And as much as my entire life has been wrapped up in it, it’s time to let it go.”

My wife, Cassie, lay curled up next to me, her ass pressed tightly up against my groin. My wife. Someone actually loved me enough to not only put up with my shit, but to agree to put up with it for the rest of her life. She was probably insane on some level, but I’d take it. Whatever kept this woman by my side was fine by me. I wasn’t sure what it was about being married, but the pieces that used to spin out of control inside me actually felt settled now. Knowing that Cassie had vowed to be mine forever filled me with a sense of comfort I’d never known I was missing. In that moment, I felt like I could do anything. I could put on a cape, sprout some wings, and save the whole fucking world if I wanted to. And the best part was, the girl by my side wasn’t going anywhere. She’d sew a J on that cape and watch me fly if I asked her to. How did I just revert to a twelve-year-old with superhero fantasies? Fucking loser.I reached my arm around Cassie’s bare waist, my fingers exploring the side of her body I couldn’t see. She moaned and my dick throbbed to life. “Good morning, wife,” I whispered against her face, before kissing the lobe of her ear and sucking it into my mouth.
Cassie moaned again before turning to face me, her gorgeous green eyes beaming. “Good morning, husband.” Husband. Fuck yeah, I’m your husband. I think that means I’m legally allowed to kill anyone who fucks with her, right? Right. Leaning down, I pulled her lower lip between my teeth and nibbled playfully. Without warning, I pushed my tongue into her open mouth, moving it in sync with hers. I fucking ached to be inside her. Literally. Fucking. Ached.“I need you,” I breathed out between kisses. Her hands reached for my lower back, her fingers pulling at my skin to move me into position on top of her. I did as she silently asked, and she pushed her knees apart in welcome. “I guess that’s a yes?” I joked, sliding inside her before she changed her mind.

Truce: The Historic Neighbor From Hell (Neighbor From Hell #4) by R.L. Mathewson

This book is definitely a must read. I love all the Neighbor From Hell Series but I think this one is my favorite. The character are still funny like all the other books in the series. This book took place way back in the day in the 1800s. It's about how the Bradfords become the Bradfords. I loved this book.

It starts out with Jason making his wife a gift for their 5th wedding anniversary and Jason's dad deciding to tell the story of how they became who they are today. He tells the story of how their great great great great, etc. grandfather Robert met his wife Elizabeth and married her after a couple of weeks and moved to America.

Robert and Elizabeth were neighbors and enemies growing up. Robert hated her and Elizabeth couldn't stand him. They always were playing pranks on each other and driving each other insane. Elizabeth's parents drag her to a ball  one night so she can find her a husband. Elizabeth has no use for a husband. She want to stay single and have control over her own life. To escape the ball, Elizabeth goes to the orangery. While there, she meets a guy. They talk and hang out but don't know who the other person is. The end up having sex and going back to the ball that where they are introduced to each other and the Bradford possessiveness that I loved comes out to play.

Robert is the guy from the orangery. Their banter and playfulness starts right back up where it had left off. Elizabeth's parents want her to marry Robert's brother James but Robert isn't allowing that. Robert is crazy about Elizabeth and accidentally gets pregnant. Robert marries her against her will. After the wedding, they think she miscarriages and their families try to make them get an annulment. 

Robert and Elizabeth decide to stay together and move to America. They realize they both love each other in their own way.

They're isn't that many sex moments but it still has the funny parts. I love this series. I never laughed so hard or swoon so much in one book before. I love the Bradford's craziness with the food and women.

Beck (Corps Security #3) by Harper Sloan

Out December 23, 2013

I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man. But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again. All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have. So I did the only thing I know how to do. I run. But he just won’t let me go.

The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out. To make her mine. She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.  She’s it for me and she knows it. She’s just too scared to admit it.

"If you don't stop treating me like a damn child, I'm going to lose it. I mean it, Beck. I want to go home. I want to sleep iin my own bed." He laughs, actually laughs in my face before turning back to the stove and flipping the pancakes he's working on.

Oh, the infuriating man. And daamn him for making pancakes worthy of me kissing his feet.

It's been two weeks. Two damn weeks since I've been released from the hospital, and he hasn't left my side once. He's becoming Betty freaking Crocker and Suzie Homemaker all rolled into one, too good looking for his own good man. He cooks my meals, does my laundry, and I bet if I asked, he's wipe my ass for me.

Don't get me wrong. I'm thankful for the assistance, but I haven't left the house once since we've been back. The first week, I don't think I could've left if I'd wanted to. My ribs screamed in pain whenever I moved, and my face would've given small children nightmares. I still look like I fought a semi and lost, but at least the bruises aren't as ugly and vibrant as before and the swelling has gone down enough that I look somewhat normal.

Now, I just want out. I want to got to my own house, sleep in my own bed and put some space between us. Oh, who am I kidding? The main reason I want out is because he's making me feel things that scare the shit out of me... making me believe that whatever I've been avoiding this whole time is possible.

He's making me want everything he's laying down at my feet. He's making me crave everything that I've been running from.

And he's got me so turned on that all he would need to do is say 'come', and I'm pretty sure my body would detonate like a perfectly crafted bomb.

Remy by Katy Evans

There really isn't much to talk about with this book. It is almost exactly the same as the previous 2 books, it is just a different character's point of view of what happen.

I did however, really like this book. This book is Real and Mine together in Remy's point of view. It goes back and forth between the present and past. When I was reading Real and Mine, I kept wondering what Remy was thinking and wondering how he was feeling. It was nice to finally find that out. I got to understand him a little more and it made me fall in love with him more. I thought he was a little mysterious in Real and Mine but this book made him just sexy.

This book can be read as a stand alone. It has all the same stuff as Real and Mine, it is just from a different point of view. I think I liked this book more than the books from Brooke's point of view. The only thing different was the present parts where Remy is talking about his wedding day/night.

Misbehaving (Sea Breeze, #6) by Abbi Glines

Jason is sick of living in his rock star brother’s shadow. So when he ships off to Sea Breeze, Alabama, he’s looking for a much deserved escape and a chance to blow off some envious steam. Falling for the local bad girl was definitely not the plan. But as the new duo enjoys some naughty fun in the Alabama sun, Jason learns that even though Jax is the musician in the family, he’s not the only brother who can rock someone’s world. 

“Go! Go! Go!” She demanded. She didn’t even look my way. Her eyes were focused on something outside. I turned my attention to the side of the road where she was intensely watching. There was nothing… then a guy came bursting out of the woods with an angry snarl on his face and I understood. No wonder she was terrified. The guy was huge and looked ready to murder someone.
I shifted gears and sped off before he could get any closer.
“OhmyGod, thank you. That was so close.” She said with a sigh of relief and rested her head on the back of the leather seat.
“Should I take you to the police station?” I asked glancing over at her. Had he attacked her before she’d gotten free?
“Definitely not. They’ll probably be looking for me in about ten minutes. I need you to take me to my momma’s. She’ll cover for me. Besides that’s where my truck is.”
They’d be looking for her? Her mom would cover for her? What?
“It ain’t like he’s got any proof. The only thing I dropped was the hockey mask and it was a cheapo I bought at the Goodwill a couple of Halloweens ago. Not something he can trace back to me.”
I slowed the Porsche down as her words started sinking in. I hadn’t just saved a girl from being attacked. If I understood this babbling correctly I had just become the getaway car.
“Why’re you slowing down? I need to get to my momma’s like now. She’s just two miles from here. You go up to county road thirty-four and turn right, then you take it about three fourths mile to Orange Street and take a left. She’s the third house on the right.”
Shaking my head I pulled over to the side of the road. “I’m not going any further until you tell me exactly what it is I’m helping you escape from?” I glanced down at the baseball bat tucked between her legs then up at her face. Even in the darkness I could tell she was one of those ridiculously gorgeous southern blonds. It was like they had some special ingredient to raise them like that down here.
She let out a frustrated sigh and blinked rapidly causing tears to fill her eyes. She was good. Real good. Those pretty tears were almost believable.
“It’s a really long story. By the time I explain everything I'll have been caught and I'll be spending the night in jail. Please, please, please just take me to my momma’s. We’re so close.” She pleaded. Yeah, she was a major looker. Too bad she was also bad news.
“Tell me one thing, why do you have a baseball bat?” I needed something. If she’d knocked someone unconscious back there then I couldn’t help her getaway. They could be injured or dead.
She ran her hand through her hair and grumbled. “Okay, okay fine. But understand that he deserved it.”
Shit. She had knocked someone out.
“I smashed all the windows in my ex's truck.”
“You did what?” I couldn’t have heard her correctly. That did not happen in real life. Country songs, yes. Real life, no way.
“He's a cheatin' bastard. He deserved it. He hurt me so I hurt him. Now, please believe me and get me out of here.”
I laughed. I couldn’t help it. This was the funniest damn thing I’d ever heard.
“Why're you laughing?” she asked
I shook my head and pulled back onto the road. “Because that’s not what I was expecting to hear.”
“What did you expect me to say? I’m carrying a bat.”
Glancing over at her I grinned, “I thought you’d taken someone out with the bat.”
Her eyes went wide and then she laughed. “I wouldn’t have knocked someone out with a bat! That’s crazy.”

Rumor Has It (Limelight #1) by Elisabeth Grace

All publicity is good publicity, right? Unless you’re recent college grad Ellie Wagner and an embarrassing video of you and your boyfriend goes viral. Every man in your life abandons you, but who knew a one-minute clip of your latest doomed relationship would brand you a slut, prevent you from getting your perfect job, and force you to keep doing the one thing you swore you’d never do again…live with your mother.

But staying with mom and her latest boy-toy (is this husband number four or five?) until your life turns around might not be all bad. Especially when you fall – literally – at the feet of a sexy, green-eyed stranger who offers you freedom and a life of luxury on a gold-rimmed platter.

There’s only one little problem – the man of your dreams is none other than Mason Nash, the latest hip-hop star busting up the music charts. Fame and fortune are his calling cards and he’s vying to steal the show on a new reality TV series that will catapult him into mainstream stardom. Hello spotlight.

The man behind the famous persona is perfect for Ellie in every way, but can she overcome the ugly pitfalls that come with Mason's celebrity status? Or will she be forced to choose between the man she loves and the independent life she longs for? After all, fame and fortune aren’t always what they seem and not all publicity is good publicity…

The whiskers on his face tickled me and I giggled and brought my shoulder up to my chin. Mason moved away to face me.
"Not the reaction I was hoping for," he said wryly.
"Do you wanna watch another movie?"
"Nah. Let's do something more fun," I suggested. 
"More fun, eh? Hmmm....we could go skinny dipping in the pool."
I raised my eyebrows at him.
"Don't like that one. Okay, I could check your body for any strange-looking moles. You can't be too careful about skin cancer living in all this Virginia sunshine, you know."
I grinned at him this time.
"Damn, you're a high-maintenance girl. What about beer pong? We could play a few rounds."
"What are we fraternity brothers now?" I laughed.
"No, but we could always make it interesting. Make up our own rules."
That piqued my interest. "Such as?"
"Such as if you miss you either have to drink, answer a question truthfully, or remove an article of clothing."
I laughed. "Are you serious?"
"I know you're concerned about losing to me, Ellie. But don't worry, I'll go easy on you." He winked and gave me a lop-sided grin that accentuated his dimple. God, he was handsome. 
"Is that right? Well, we'll see about that. When I'm finished with you you'll be begging me for mercy."
"I certainly hope so," he said with a sly grin.

A Beautifull Wedding (Beautiful #2.5) by Jamie McGuire

A Beautiful Wedding was a sweet, short story. It gave a glimpse into Abby's and Travis wedding day. I had always wonder what happen before, during and after their wedding and this book explained it all. It's less than a 100 pages, however it was enough to get the point across. I finished the book in a couple of hours. I wished it had been a little longer.

I really liked the book. Travis is still so damn hot and caring. I loved how he changed for her because he wanted to and not because she wanted him to. He's protective of Abby and a good love story. What bothered me in this book was I didn't really remember Abby being so annoying or whiny. In Beautiful Disaster, I loved her character. I thought she was strong and hard headed but in this book she just rubbed me the wrong way. I wanted to go into the book and shake some sense into her.

Officer Off Limits (Line Of Duty #3) By Tessa Bailey

This is the third book in the series. I aboustely loved the characters in Asking For Trouble the fourth book in the series but in this book they sort of annoyed me. I didn't think they had a story that was worth reading. The seemed more like secondary characters than main characters.

Story which is a dumb name for a character. She seemed more like a Paige to me. Anyways, her boyfriend dumps her 2 weeks before her wedding. She decides to go visit her dad in New York, who recently had a heart attack and is in the hospital. Once there, she meets her dad's much younger partner. Daniel. Daniel hits on her immediately after seeing her not knowing who she is and she calls his bullshit. Later, when he goes to visit Story's dad, he learns who Story is. Her dad tells Daniel to stay away from his daughter. But then, tells Daniel to take his daughter home, show her around and some others things that contradicted what he told Daniel.

Of course, they feel attracted to each other and hang out. Within the first couple of chapters, Daniel has Story up against the wall and is kissing her. They're chemistry is hot and steamy. I could feel that they had something but it seemed like it was happening too fast. Daniel wants Story to stay in New York through the summer and Story wants to find herself after being in a long term relationship for so long.

They decide to spend some time apart which really is a very long long week. Story still wants Daniel. Daniel can't stop thinking about Story. They get back together and decide to tell Story's dad they're together. But before that can happen, Story's ex boyfriend shows up. He wants her back, thinks them breaking up was a mistake, he lied to her and on and on. Story learns that her dad is the one that made her ex boyfriend break up with her. He doesn't think he was good enough for his daughter. He wants someone that is going to take care of her. Story and Daniel find happily ever after, after some more drama and truths being revealed.

There is also a hostage situation, hot sex and humor. Story tells it like it is and has no filter once so ever. I liked some parts of the book, but Story's character just annoyed me. She wasn't believable. Daniel seems mysterious with some deep secrets but what bad boy cop doesn't have a couple of those. The plot of the story was the best part. If it was better written it would have been worth reading.


I am currently reading... 

It's a toss up between Gabriel's Redemption by Sylvain Reynard, Beautiful Wedding by Jamie McGuire and Adam, Enough Said by Lynda LeeAnne. I know I am going to read all of the eventually but, I don't know which one I want to read first.

A Beautiful Wedding (Beautiful #2.5) by Jamie McGuire

A Beautiful Wedding is a Novella and it came out today December 10, 2013.

You know that Abby Abernathy unexpectedly became Mrs. Maddox. But what do you really know?
Why did Abby pop the question?
What secrets were shared before the ceremony?
Where did they spend their wedding night?
Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?

Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret . . . until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!)—and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait.

"Tell me," he said softly. No matter how I tried to explain it away, he knew me well enough to know- poker face or not- that I was hiding something from him.
"I think what you're reading is exhaustion. I haven't slept in almost twenty-four hours."
He sighed, kissed my forehead, and then went to the mini fridge. He bent over, and then turned, holding up two small cans of Red Bull. "Problem solved."
"My fiance is a genuis."
He handed me a can, and then took me into his arms. "I like that."
"That I think you're a genuis?"
"Being your finance."
"Yeah? Don't get used to it. I'll be calling something else in three hours."
"I'll like the new name even better."
I smiled, watching Travis open the bathroom door.

Asking For Trouble (Line of Duty #4) by Tessa Bailey

I read Asking For Trouble before Officer Off Limits even though it's suppose to be the other way around. There really isn't a need to read Officer Off Limits first, except the character in Officer Off Limits may an appearance in this book a couple of times. They're are friends with the main characters in this book.

I enjoyed the characters a lot. Their banter and bickering was fun and light. I loved the dirty talk. It was different and seemed way more dirtier than previous books I have read. The book is a quick read and alternates between characters. It seems like all the bickering is foreplay. The characters have some serious chemistry. I also like the little pet names they give each other. They're cute.

Brent is rude, rough, sexy and charming all in one. He was a crazy sense of humor and loves to get under Hayden's skin. He can be protective and knows how to take care of his loved ones. He works 2 jobs to support everyone in his family. Hayden is rich, beautiful and hates Brent throwing it in her face how much money she has. She seems cold hearted and uptight at the beginning of the book. Brent and Hayden do not get along at all. They fight and throw hurtful words at each other every time they're in a room together which seems to be a lot since their best friends are in love.

Brent and Hayden get together sort of under a dare. They both are trying to see who would called off things first and things end up getting steamy fast. They're first night together gets interrupted by Hayden's mom. But to get back at her mom, Hayden invites Brent to a dinner party for the next night. Hayden wants Brent to keep things a secret. They end up sleeping together. Afterwards it seems like Hayden and Brent can't stay away from each other. They run into each other and miss each other like crazy. Brent keeps things a secret for awhile but then to piss Hayden off, he lets it slip in front of their friends that they were together. He wants her and he knows she wants him. He doesn't understand why they can't be together.

Hayden has a lot going on at home. Her dad is going to lose his company unless Hayden marries some rich guy that will loan the money to saved it. Hayden thinks about not marry the guy because she realizes she wants Brent. Brent and her end up in an argument and she decides to marry the other guy. Brent finds out and stop the wedding. The company ends up being saved another way.

Before We Fall (Beautifully Broken #3) by Courtney Cole

Sometimes, one dark moment is all it takes to turn your world black. For 24-year old Dominic Kinkaide, that moment took place on the night of his high school graduation. One dark incident changed him forever. He's a hardened actor now, famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured in his own. He doesn't care about much of anything, except for losing himself in the roles that he plays. 23-year old Jacey Vincent doesn't realize how much her father's indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn't one specific moment that wrecks a person, but rather it's an absence of moments. She's like a bird with a broken wing-strong yet fragile, as she tries to float through life, finding acceptance in the arms of random guys, one after the other... to fill the void that her father left in her. Until she meets Dominic. After jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, his secret and her issues create a dark and damaged energy that will soon turn their attraction to each other into an explosive storm. Even though when the clouds have cleared and the dust has settled, both of them are almost obliterated... they've learned a priceless lesson. Sometimes, before we fall...we fly.

Yet at the same time, she seems warm and real. I haven’t forgotten how she shoved her way in between Cris and I and shielded my body with her own. She’s a puzzle.
Jacey looks confused by my question.
“It matters because you’re not some stranger off the street. You look seriously upset. Of course I’m going to ask you if you’re alright. Who wouldn’t?”
Most of the people I know in Hollywood, I think.
But I don’t say it. Instead, I turn my back and start up the stairs again. I don’t fucking answer to her or anyone else.
“Do you need anything?” Jacey’s voice is hesitant behind me. “An ice pack or anything? That bruise on your cheek looks like it still hurts.”
I pause, not looking at her. Instead I remember her bare leg, stretching toward the sky while her tiny uniform shorts slide over it. The mere memory of the way she’d undressed right out in the open sets my pulse to racing.
Yeah, there’s a bunch of things I need, but only one thing that will take my mind off the reason that I need them.

About The Author:
Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds). Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.

Sara Shepard Author Of Pretty Little Liars

I read these books years ago when they first came out. I thought the series ended after book 4. I was surprised tonight to find that there are 15 books and a 2 companion books in all. I absolutely loved the series and thought the books were great. I also loved the show and currently watch it. The books are different in so many ways than the show. I know the series in young adult and has nothing to do with romance. Well the girls in the books do bounce around to different guys but its normal teenage stuff. I hate when I start a series, fall in love with the books and think after 2 or 3 books the series is over, then years later found out there is indeed more books in that series.

The whole series revolves around 5 girls. They used to be best friends and after one of their friends goes missing in middle school, the 4 remaining girls stop talking and go their separate ways. Book 1 starts off with the girls in high school and they start getting these crazy mysterious texts from someone calling themselves A who threats to spill their deep dark secrets. I ended the book series on book 4 where they found out who was sending the texts.

The book series covers a range of topics from bullying, peer pressure, drug problems, murder, mental illness and others. This series is awesome and I had to write about it. I think I need to finish the series to see what actually happens.

Down London Road (On Dublin Street #2) by Samantha Young

I didn't like Down London Road at all. It seemed to drag on forever and I lost interest in the story halfway through the book. I didn't like the whole love quadrant. Jo has a boyfriend and Cam has a girlfriend but they secretly want each other. They should of just broke up with their partners and got together instead of dragging the book on forever.

The names in the book were too similar to each other. Jo, Joss, Callum, Cam, Cole, Becca, Braden, Brian. I kept getting confused at what was going on and with who. Jo has too many love interests and I guess the whole point of her talking about them was so the reader could understand her better, but it just confused me more. I didn't need to know her whole love life in the story.

I didn't like the built up to Cam and Jo getting together. I knew it was going to happen but it was taking way to long and then when it finally happen, it was bland. They didn't really have chemistry or even lust. It seemed more like a friendship to me. Nothing good in this happen until the end. That's where it got interesting and was sort of a page turner. 

Jo just didn't seem like a woman I could relate to. I understood her problems, her family issue and the reason she dates rich men but as a person she seemed really boring. Cam seemed like an alright hot guy, but he too didn't really peek my interest. I like Cole, Jo's younger brother. He seemed like a nice kid even though he was a teenager and they're normally really bratty in real life. 

This book wasn't for me. I just couldn't get into it and was boring.

Heaven's Sinners (The MC Sinners #2) by Bella Jewel

Heaven's Sinners was an okay book for me. I liked the characters in this book better than the first one. I like the different perspective aspect of the book. I like when the author writes the story from both points of view. I like knowing what is going on in each characters head. I didn't like how whiny Ciara was. I don't know if it was just me but Ciara complained and whined a lot. A little too much for a grown woman. I like how she was dealing with everything and was on her own in a way but the crying was too much. Spike was a typically man and didn't show his emotions a lot. He also couldn't make up his mind. He wanted Ciara but then he didn't want her. I though only females changed their minds as much as Spike did.

Spike is dealing with butt loads of guilt and regret that came from loosing his wife which also happens to be Ciara's sister. Ciara and her family blames Spike for her death. Ciara is also mad at Spike for choosing her sister over her. Ciara and Spike were friends that always wanted each other but never told each other their feelings. Ciara always came in second place when it involved her sister. She could never get out from behind her shadow. She always thought Spike would choose her over her sister. However, Spike got tired of being in the friend zone and moved on to the sister. They need up getting married and she dies in a car chase.

Ciara hates that Spike chose her sister and also hates her sister for being with Spike. She still wants Spike after everything that happen. She decides to forgive him and move past their past. She wants to help Spike get over everything. They become friends again with a little extra benefits too. Spike is out for revenge against the man that killed his wife. Ciara doesn't want Spike to go after him. Spike ends up hurt and in the hospital and Ciara ends up pregnant. At first, Spike doesn't want kids but then warms up to the idea. Spike tells Ciara it was always her. He always wanted her and loved her even when he was with her sister.

There is some steamy sex scenes, more baggage and some off the wall craziness. I liked Spike a lot more than Cade from the first book. I think his character is super sexy and mysterious. This book was more emotional but it just wasn't for me. I had a hard time getting into it.

Trust In Me by Jennifer Armentrout

Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story.
Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.

Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?

I kissed her, pressing my lips to hers, working at the seam of her mouth until she opened, allowing me in. The taste of her skin had sparked a fire deep inside me, but the feel of her warm mouth ignited a blazing fire. I couldn’t get enough of her lips, of her kisses or the soft, breathy sounds she was making.

I groaned as I slid my hand out from underneath her, guiding her onto her back. Her body immediately stiffened, and I knew I needed to tone it down. The last thing I wanted was to scare her.
God, that was the last thing.

Cupping her cheek, I softly kissed her until her body relaxed under mine and then, shocking the hell out of me, her small hand ended up under my shirt, pressing against the bare skin of my abs.
It was like being branded.

Heat roared through my veins as my body jerked on reflex. Air punched from my lungs. She wanted to touch me? Holy hell, she could touch me. I pulled back, reached down and yanked my shirt over my head.

Avery’s mouth parted as her gaze moved over my chest, the tattoo, and then down. It was like a touch, but better. My body was burning to feel hers.

I tugged the comforter down and planted my hands on either side of her head, tangling them in her hair. There was a primal part that took over when her hands flattened over the lower part of my stomach. My entire body tightened.

I dropped my forehead to hers. “You have no idea what you do to me.”


From my all time favorite book series. This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas. There are a lot of heart-melting, funny, sappy quotes but these top them all or at least in my case they do.

"No!” I push him away from me. “You’re not manipulating me with your delicious Godliness!”
He grins that roguish grin. “You think I’m a God?”  - This Man

“You're painfully beautiful and all mine. Kiss me.” - This Man  

“Someone needs a cuddle.” - This Man

Zero, baby.”   - This Man

“I am confident, because you said yes. Or was it....." He looks up to the ceiling in deep thought and then back at me. "Oh, I remember. It was...yes, yes, yes, fucking hell, yes!” - Beneath This Man

“You're mine, and mine alone, baby. Just for my eyes, just for my touch and just for my pleasure. Just mine. Do you understand me?” - Beneath This Man

“Damn you, Jesse Ward, of an age I don't know!” - Beneath This Man  

“You're so handsome." I mumble dreamily, as he starts working the cream over every inch of my back. "I think I'll keep you forever.” - Beneath This Man  

"Your arrogant God wants to spend the rest of his life smothering you with his love and his body." - Beneath This Man

“We’re not conventional, baby. But we’re special. What we have is really special. You belong to me, and I belong to you. It just is. It’s not natural for us to be apart, Ava.” - This Man Confessed  

“Baby, my heart’s splitting. I hate fighting with you.’ - This Man Confessed

"Ava, one day I'm gonna shove a bar of soap in your mouth.” - This Man Confessed  

“I don't want to take my eyes away from your face." "No?" He shakes his head mildly. "They'll be lace if I do, won't there?" I nod. "White lace?" "Ivory." His chest expands slightly. "And you're taller, so you've got heels on.” - This Man Confessed

I need..

I just finished Beautiful Bastard and now I need something else to read. I like funny, sappy romance novels but there isn't anything that is catching my interest. I wish some books that I have been dying to read would already come out so I can read them not. 

Beautiful Bastard/Bitch by Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard was brilliant. It was a heart-felt romance with the perfect amount of sex and banter.
I love when the couple argues and fights like crazy but can't stand to be away from each other. This book was fast paced and starts off with a bang. I love how the book is from the both of the characters perspectives.

Bennett and Chloe hook up pretty quick. Normally, when the couple gets together early and there is no build up of their relationship, it annoys me but with this book, it was exciting. Bennett is Chloe's boss. Chloe is the intern. Their relationship is frown upon but they don't see it as a relationship but more as hate-f*****g. They cannot stand each other. They argue and drive each other crazy but they have this weird thing where they can't get enough of each other. 

There is a lot of sex in the office but the steamy scenes don't overshadow the romance aspect of the story. Bennett respects Chloe as a business woman even though they argue. He knows she is smart and is going places after she finishes her masters. He slowly falls for her. He likes that she gives just as good as she gets. He is afraid to lose her as his intern and his lover. Chloe overhears Bennett talking down about her and her feelings get hurt. 

Instead of talking to him and acting like a normal adult, she leaves. She cuts all contact off with Bennett and quits her job. They both mope around for a couple of months. Bennett gets updates about Chloe from her best friend. Finally, Bennett grows some balls and goes to Chloe. He tells her how he feels. 

I love the banter, the name calling, the driving each other absolutely crazy, the obsession of ripping panties and the realization that they are perfect for each other. I swoon over Bennett. It wasn't that he was gorgeous or rich but more that he was a jerk but he cared about Chloe so fierce. I didn't like the cliffhanger. They finally get back together and the book ends. 

Beautiful Bitch picks up a year after Beautiful Bastard ended. Chloe and Bennett are still together and are sort of going through a rough patch. They work so much that they don't see each other often. They miss each other. 

In Beautiful Bitch there are flash backs from the past year of their relationship. It is still in both of the perspectives. They still argue, love each other and Bennett's obsession with ripping Chloe's panties. There isn't a lot that happens in the book. They both just realize that they want to be together forever. I like how it was a short continuation of their love story. I didn't like how it sort of ended in a cliffhanger. I wanted to know what happen after she said yes. 

Sunday, November 17, 2013


Currently, I am reading Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Bitch by Christina Lauren. I know this book has been out for awhile but I wasn't really interested in reading it but I had nothing else to read so I am giving it a try.

Chosen Heart by Stephanie Nash

I was expecting a lot more from this book. I thought it would have it all. The hot rich older guy, the young native beautiful girl, the love, some drama and their forbidden romance but it didn't work for me. Their romance seemed rushed, within 40 pages of reading they were already crazy about each other and missing each other. It was just too fast paced with no built up. I love the build up and chemistry and this book just didn't have it for me.

Elyssa and Alex kept their romance a secret. Alex acts all hot and cold. He's confusing. He wants her but then it seems like he would get mad at her and push her away. Elyssa seemed really native and confused by Alex. They both have secrets and Elyssa is the only to really share hers until this big blow up when Alex tells her about his personal life. Elyssa's secret seemed like it was going to be more of a secret to me. Throughout the book, it made it seem like something big really happen but then I found out and it didn't seem like such a problem. Alex's secret threw me off. I wasn't expecting his secret to go down the way it did.

There were parts of the book that seemed out of place. Like almost the author wanted to create drama and threw some messed up stuff in there. Early in the book, Elyssa lets her secret be known but somehow that's not the secret that screw her up, she had another secret. There were somethings that could have been left out and made the book a lot better. I also didn't like the whining from Elyssa, the repeat of events and the insecurities. Alex would ignore Elyssa. Elyssa would get hurt feeling because of it. She would try and make Alex jealous. Alex would yell at her. He would accuse her of cheating on him and not really wanting him. Elyssa would reassure she wanted him. They would make up. It was like this over and over again.

There were some steamy sex scenes but Elyssa and Alex's whole relationship seemed rushed and the sex just didn't follow the book. Elyssa said she doesn't have sex unless she is in a relationship but jumps into bed with Alex after knowing him for about a week and only have talked to him a handful of times here and there. Alex says he doesn't do relationship at all because of his past but wants to make Elyssa his right from the moment he sees her. The jealousy between the two is over the top and completely not needed. Elyssa and Alex also act very immature for people that are suppose to be near their 30s.

The characters are not well written and aren't realistic. The storyline isn't even that interesting to me. This book just didn't work for me. It wasn't a good romance novel at all.

One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker

I liked this book more than Ten Tiny Breaths. The characters and problems seemed more relatable. I loved Livie in Ten Tiny Breaths and I was so glad she got her own book. She was the more stable one in Ten Tiny Breaths. She didn't seem like she had any real problems. I also loved her male counterpart, Ashton. He was funny, sweet, caring and had secrets. Which who doesn't. It wouldn't be a story if one character wasn't screwed up somehow. This book was different than I thought it was going to be. I thought I had figured out what was going to happen, but then it took a twist and went a complete different way. My favorite was the little quotes and banter between the characters.

One Tiny Lie starts off with Livie leaving for college. Kasey and Livie's shrink wants her to live a little. After her tragic past and family stuff made her grow up too fast, she acts more mature than her age. They want her to be her age, make mistakes and have regrets like everyone else her age. Livie is too put together and perfect. On her first night at school, Kasey takes Livie out partying. She wakes up to no good memories, a tattoo and a dorm room full of people who she doesn't know. Ashton is one of those people. Ashton remembers everything that happen but they both agree to forget everything. 

Livie meets Ashton's best friend Connor. Connor is everything Livie is looking for and more. However, Livie can't seem to get Ashton out of her head. Livie starts hanging out with Connor sort of. He is really into school and cancels on her a lot. She also become friends with Ashton. He tells her they shouldn't be friends but they both seem to have a hard time staying away from each other. Livie ends up having sex with Ashton and telling him her feelings. It seems like he feels the same way until his girlfriend walks in. Livie is heartbroken and goes back home to Miami. Ashton has tons of secrets he was keeping from Livie. In the end, Kasey gets Livie to got back to school and finish the year out. Ashton meets up with Livie and tells her everything. They end up together. There is a lot of other things and interaction between the characters.

I normally don't like love triangle. I always feel bad that one character is going to get hurt but in this book I didn't mind it. I could tell Ashton and Livie were meant to be together right from the beginning. Ashton makes Livie be her age and feel alive while Connor was the opposite. I loved Livie's journey through this book. She really grew up and found herself, her true self. Not someone she thought her parents would want her to be and be proud of. She found her own way.

Mine by Katy Evans

Mine is a sequel to Real. It takes places 2 months after Real ended. I liked this book. It continued Brooke and Remy's love story. I was very excited for this book. I waited for what seemed like forever to get my greedy little hands on it but it was sort of a let down. I was expecting so much more from this book and it was just okay. It still had the sex, romance and drama but I was waiting for some big thing or twist to happen and it never did.

Remy is super sexy. The way the author describes him, I can almost picture him. He is yummy. I love how he loves Brooke so fierce. I liked how he is protective and licks her. The licking thing he did to Brooke, I thought was sweet. He is definitely an Alpha male. If I ever meet anyone like Remy, I would be scared, speechless and probably a little intimidated.

Brooke annoyed me in this book. She whines way too much for an adult. I didn't realized how much she whined and complained about things. She is too much inside her head. She over thinks everything. She lets her insecurities get in the way. I can understand why she is insecure, her man is a god and every woman wanted him. However, Remy wanted her and told her that constantly, but for some reason she still had doubts. 

Mine picks up 2 months after Real and its almost time for the Underground fighting season to start. Remy is still madly in love with Brooke. He needs her like he needs air to breathe. Brooke finds out Remy had other girls when the were broken up in Real and is devastated. She has a hard time getting over it although they were broken up and Remy could do whatever he wanted. Brooke gets bitten by some Scorpions that were a present from Scorpion, Remy's enemy. Brooke also finds out she is pregnant but she almost miscarries. Remy wants to keep Brooke and the baby safe and makes her go home to get rest until after the first trimester. Brooke worries and misses Remy. Remy misses Brooke. Brooke deals with her family disapproving of her being pregnant. Her sister is dumb and goes back to Scorpion because she is getting blackmailed by him. Remy fights his mood disorder. There is some other not important stuff that happens. At the end, Brooke and Remy get married and they have their baby.

I liked Remy. I think he is a beast. He's the only reason why I read this book. I loved him in Real and this book. He is also the only reason I was so excited for this book. Other than him, this book is okay. I was annoyed with Brooke, the repeat of words, the over professing of love and the whining. The author uses the same words over and over again hundreds of times in the book. Brooke wanted Remy. She needed Remy. He was hers over and over. I could skip a paragraph and I would pick up exactly on the same thing I was trying to skip.

What I am...

I am reading Mine by Katy Evans. I am so excited for this book. It feels like I waited forever for to read it.

Scars and Songs by Christine Zolendz

Scars and Songs is just like the Fall From Grace and Saving Grace except it's in Shane's point of view. I like the overall book. I like getting into Shane's head and founding out what he was thinking. But, it was almost exactly like the previous 2 books so it was like I was reading the same thing all over again. When I read a book, I always wonder what the guy or other main character is doing at the same time as the character I am reading about and this book told me. However, this book can be read as a stand alone.

Scars and Songs made me fall in love with Shane a little more. In the previous 2 books, you could tell he had feelings for Grace but being able to read how he really felt about her and wanted her, it just makes everything he did make sense. I think this book was one of the best male point of view stories I have read in a long time.

I liked reading all my favorite parts through Shane's eyes. Scars and Songs was very enjoyable and added something to the whole Mad World Series.

Saving Grace by Christine Zolendz

Saving Grace was nice a perfect conclusion to Fall From Grace. Shane and Grace finally got together at the end and let their feeling be known after some misunderstandings on both their parts. They still argued and bickered but what 2 people who love each other doesn't do that. Shane in Saving Grace seemed like he grew up a little bit. He wasn't such an asshole or man whore. He acted more mature. Grace was a little annoying and whining. She should of just talked to Shane instead of running from him.

There really isn't much communication between Shane and Grace. I think if they actually talked more than they stared at each other, their problems would have been solved a lot sooner. They were either, starring at each other, fighting or kissing. Saving Grace was still suspenseful. But again what irritated me was how long it took Shane and Grace to get together. They finally put their feelings out there but things kept getting in their way. It took 300 pages for them to finally get together and then the book ends. The build up was done in Fall From Grace, I shouldn't of had to read the build up between them again.

Saving Grace picks up where Fall From Grace left off. Grace's body is still in the hospital and her soul is left wondering around. It's in a limbo state. Grace can see everything that is going on in the hospital. Grace eventually wakes up and learns that she has been in a medical induce coma for 4 weeks. Shane isn't by her side and no one is telling her where he is. She thinks he is dead. Grace gets discharged from the hospital and goes into a self loathing period for a couple of days where all she does is drink to feel numb and passes out. Lea yells at her countless times to wake up and start living her life. She wants her best friends back.

Some detectives question her about what happen to her at the cabin and she learns that Shane is in jail her supposedly attacking her. She makes up a story because what really happen at the cabin will get her sent to a crazy hospital. She tells them Shane didn't hurt her, he saved her. She has to repeat her story a dozen times to a dozen different people. Afterwards, Lea decides it will be a good idea to go out to the bar. Grace ends up leaving with Ethan one of Shane's friends. The next morning, Shane who just got release from jail catches her as she leaves Ethan's room. They argue over it. Shane acts jealous and mean towards Grace for about 2 minutes until Grace gets sick of his attitude and tells him what really happen. Shane makes it known he wants her and only her.

Grace keeps getting visits from fallen angels that want her soul and she looses a crazy amount of time after one in particular visits her, Gabriel. He tells her that she is his and is she doesn't come with him, he will hurt everyone she cares about. Grace and Shane go through a couple more problems and their friends make it difficult for them to actually be together. At the end, Shane finally tells Grace who he really is. He the boy that took her first innocent kiss over 2000 thousand years ago and sent them to the hell their soul lives in. Gabriel tries to kill them but they survive and sends he away. Grace and Shane get their happy ever after. They're both human now and get to live their last life together.

Overall I really loved the characters, the dialogue and chemistry between Shane and Grace. I also loved how the Fall From Grace series is a little different than some books. I had a lot of expectations for Saving Grace and it didn't really live up to any of them. It was a repetitive storyline almost like Fall From Grace's storyline.

Fall From Grace by Christine Zolendz

Fall From Grace grabs you from the first page and gets better with every page. It has awesome one liners and a kick ass, strong female lead. It's light hearted and un-put-downable or it was in my case. It's all things, witty, funny, delightful, sweet and heart melting. The author knew what she was doing. The story seemed like any other love story but half way through there is a twist and it's really a paranormal romance. It is hinted throughout the book that something was different about Grace. I hated the cliffhanger at the end the most.

It was very irritating that everyone thought Grace was the most beautiful girl ever. Every guy n the book was saying Grace, you are so beautiful in so many words. Tucker, a guy she sorts of dates or giving a chance to, told her she was beautiful or called her beautiful in every sentence he spoke to her. Grace was beautiful, I got that from the first few hundred times some guy told her. I didn't need to be reminded constantly.

The beginning of Fall From Grace starts off with Grace having to deal with the death of her brother. She decides to go back home to her best friend Lea to start living her life again. On her first night back, Lea drags her out to a bar to hear a band play. That's where she meets Shane, who is the lead singer of the band Mad World. He's tall, tattooed and a rock god. Grace instantly feels drawn to him despite his man whoring ways, his panty dropping smile, I can get any girl I want personality and no girl ever tells him no attitude. There are girls that are constantly throwing themselves at Shane and Grace uses that to her advantage to show him she isn't fazed by him.

Grace tells Shane she doesn't want to be another notch on his bedpost so he should just treat her like one of the guys because they're never gonna to happen. Lea also tells Shane, Grace isn't interested in him. He isn't her type, to not go there with Grace. However, Lea knows Grace's secret. She has been searching for someone her whole life. She doesn't need Shane as a distraction.

Grace gets attacked and Shane saves her. To show her gratitude, she decides to join the band. One of the previous members got hurt and can't perform anymore, Grace wants to help Shane. Shane and Grace start hanging out that mostly consist of them running a crazy amount of miles in Central Park, flirting or performing on stage for the band. Though, every time it ends with one of them getting mad at the other person. Shane also recites romantic quotes to Grace a lot. Grace gets attacked again. She almost dies in a fire, but Shane saves her again. To get away from everything that is happening in the city, everyone decides to take a trip out of town. Before they leave, Grace meets Blake, Tucker's cousin. She thinks he's the one she has been searching for. Shane and Grace get stuck in a snow storm on the way to the cabin and he finally tells her how he feels. They get into a huge argument about it. Grace gets attacked by Blake once they do finally make it to Tucker's house. The book ends with Grace lying in a hospital bed.

What bothered me the most about the book was that Grace clearly had feeling for Shane. She would flirt with him and get jealous of other girls that would hang all over him. She wouldn't tell him how she felt. Shane clearly had feelings for Grace. He would get mad at guys who hit on her, he was protective of her, was always watching her and constantly wanted to be around her but he too wouldn't tell Grace how he felt. He would just tell her stuff that made it seem like all he wanted from her was sex. It annoys me when the author won't get the couple together sooner and you read the whole book and it's not until the last chapter until they tell each other their feelings. I like the build up, the flirting and bickering with the characters but 400 pages of build up is over kill. You knew something was gonna happen between Grace and Shane but it took too long for it to happen. In this book it never happen. Shane lets his feeling be known and Grace shuts him down.

On to book 2 Saving Grace...
