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.
