Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining

Josie Banks is a girl without a past. After being found unconscious with no memory, she was shuffled in and out of foster homes where she suffered years of abuse. An experience that left her broken, damaged, and clinging to drugs and meaningless hook-ups to numb her pain. When Josie disappeared years ago, she took a piece of Tristan with her. She’s the girl he thought he lost forever—the one he’s never been able to forget. Now a twist of fate has brought them back together, and he never wants to let her out of his inked arms again. But Tristan is haunted by a dark past of his own. On the run from ruthless criminals that shattered Josie’s world years ago, reentering her life puts them both in danger. As Josie and Tristan’s lives become tangled once again, they find themselves unwilling and unable to escape the relentless pull that draws them together. But will the past leave their love in ruins—or bind them together for a lifetime?

Josie craved his touch and she couldn’t understand why they hadn’t had sex yet, or any form of it. She wanted it; her fingers ached to touch him in places she’d only yet imagined. It was obvious that Tristan felt the same way, so she failed to make sense of his need to take things slow. She longed to feel his sweat slicked skin against hers and inhale the scent of their bodies combined. Not ready to admit any kind of emotional connection, she desperately needed a physical one. It was the only thing she was comfortable with.

Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC #2) by Joanna Wylde

I loved this book. It wasn't what I expected. I don't really know what I was expecting but this wasn't it. I don't know if that a good thing or not. Reaper's Legacy seemed a little short to me. It seemed like the book just started and then it was ending.

I loved Ruger. He was my favorite character in Reaper's Property. He was super sexy and sweet all in one. He made it seem like he was some bad ass biker but deep down he was a big softy. He took care of Sophie and Noah. They weren't his problem or his to take care of but he made sure he was always there for them when ever they needed him. He helped out Sophie all the time. I liked that he was a night in shining armor but on a bike instead of a horse.

Sophie wasn't my favorite person. She didn't seem like she was strong. She was a young single mom and I give her credit for that but it seem like she needed someone to take care of her instead of her taking care of herself. She also annoyed me that she kept sort of leading Ruger on. She wanted him but she pushed him away. I would have taken Ruger anyway he let me but what he was offering her wasn't good enough for her.

Reaper's Legacy isn't a typically love story but it is a love story all the same. Ruger was in love with Sophie for so long he just didn't realized it sooner. I think Sophie wanted Ruger the minute she saw him at his apartment. It took them long enough to realized they wanted and needed each other and when they finally did, I was so happy. I was jumping for joy. 

The little twist about Sophie's past with Ruger threw me. I didn't see that coming and I enjoyed it. I think my favorite part was when Sophie realized what Ruger's tattoos on his shoulders were. I thought that was very sweet.

I can't wait for the next book, Devil's Game.

Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC #2) by Joanna Wylde

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart—and her virginity—to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten. She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious—her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands—with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club—to give them a better life. Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way. 

 “When a man takes a woman as his property, it’s not about owning her,” he continued, eyes searching my face. “It’s about trusting her. This is my life I’m handing you, Sophie. Not just my life—my brothers’ lives, too. It means I’m responsible for everything you do. You fuck up, I’ll pay. You need help, we’re there. You’re the only woman I’ve ever met that I’d consider giving that kind of power to. Hell, I’m not just considering it, I’m desperate for you to take it.”

Masquerade (Games #3) by Nyrae Dawn

Masquerade is third book in the Games series by Nyrae Dawn. It's a little slow at the beginning but then picks up a little. It seem to me that the book took forever to get to the climax and then it was over. Out of all of the books in the series, this one is my least favorite. It wasn't because of the characters or the plot but it was too slow paced.

Masquerade is about a guy, Maddox with a ton of misplaced guilt and a girl, Bee who doesn't know who she is. I liked Maddox a lot. Maddox is very protective of the people he cares about. He seems quiet and shy but sexy too. He has tons of walls up to protect himself. He doesn't like letting people in until he meets Bee. I felt like I could relate to Maddox and I loved when I can relate to a character. It gives me a connection to them. Bee was a strong girl. She had been through a lot and she was still fighting. She also doesn't like letting her wall down and letting people in until she meets Maddox. These 2 people were perfect for each other. They understood each other in a way that most characters in a book normally don't. They had chemistry, cute little banter and were attracted to each other.

Maddox runs security at a local club. Bee comes in one night. She finds Maddox and they end up having a one night stand that turns into more. Bee had a screw up childhood. She was kidnapped when she was young and then found 9 years later. Maddox had to grow up fast when his dad went to jail and his mom fell apart. They don't want each other but continue to hang out and eventually fall for each other.

I liked the whole kidnap and found thing that was going on with Bee. It seems like in the last couple of years there was been a few girls that were kidnapped when they were young and found years later and this put everything into perspective for me. I related it to real life. I like the book overall just not how slow paced it was.

But before I left, her green eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct So Cal accent, "My name is Annie Baylis. I'm an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You're my last hope. Please save me."One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller.

Unbearable Guilt (Breathe Again #2) by Emma Grayson

Kane Archer hasn’t always been full of rage or torment, he hasn’t always hated life or himself, and he hasn’t always lived in a world riddled with so much guilt that it consumed him. There was a time when his life was complete, when he smiled and laughed, made electrifyingly passionate love, and breathed happiness. Until the unthinkable took it all away from him. Now, still reeling from his fiancée’s death two and a half years later, and with the promise he made to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice –regardless of the cost– Kane returns to Camden, the one place he swore he’d never go back to. Numb, afflicted by guilt, and haunted by the events that led to Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he felt connected to; who made him feel again. As Kane gets closer to the ones responsible for Aimee’s death, he’s thrown a curve ball when he discovers a secret so devastating it not only rocks his world, but threatens to destroy any chance at happiness. Whitney Jareau packed up her life and left everything behind when tragedy struck her family. Finally able to get away from her persistent and domineering family who wanted her to do the one thing she couldn’t, she found her solitude in Camden. Now, two years later, her family wants her home and will go to any lengths to get her there. With her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes. Can Whitney stand strong without succumbing to the demands of her family? Can Kane let Aimee and the past go in order to move forward with the woman who brought him back to life? Or will he walk away from her and only ever feel the burden of UNBEARABLE GUILT.

His eyes dropped to the top of my shoulder as he watched his index finger trace in soft swirls over my skin then slowly down my arm. “There’s something here, between us,” he said, his eyes looking back up at me. “Pulling me towards you, and you towards me.”

“A magnetic field,” I said lowly.

Kane tossed his head back erupted with laughter. His chest shook up and down as the sound of his laugh engulfed me like a warm blanket on a cold night. I looked up at him, mesmerized by his beauty during such a simple, normal, mundane moment, realizing, I hadn’t ever heard him laugh like that before.

He may have chuckled or softy laughed before, but I’d never –in the time of knowing him– heard him in full out laughter.

To someone watching in the distance, it would seem normal and like nothing out of the blue, but for me, to see him in that kind of light, it was something else.

It was thrilling and a beautiful moment to be in.

His laughter subsided as he looked down at me with a smile across his face. “Something like that,” he said with an edge of laughter.

I smiled, not at what he said, but at the fact that he was smiling back at me. His head dipped down, the warmth of his breath gliding over my skin as his lips finally captured mine.

Our lips moved together as he walked backwards and my back hit the door. I smoothed my hands over his broad shoulders, feeling his bare warm skin under my touch, and wrapped my arms around him. My tongue then swiped across his bottom lip, darted inside and collided with his and a soft chuckle sounded and vibrated into his mouth.

He pulled back, looking at me curiously as he asked, “What’s funny?”

“Every time I kiss you, you taste like chocolate.” I grinned.

“They helped me quit smoking,” he said, motioning with his head over to the coffee table where a yellow bag of M&M’s were sitting.

“No complaining here.”

His head moved closer, his lips inches from mine, “Good,” he said, then crashed his lips back on mine again, his tongue darting inside my mouth.

My heart rocked, ready to burst out of my chest.

I tightened my arms around his neck and I pulled him closer, needing to feel him against me. His hands on my hips gripped and balled my shirt in his hands as he pushed up against me and I could feel the hard bulge in pants.

I moaned.

His hands loosened and slide around me then, like he’d done before, he cupped my ass in his hands and lifted me off the floor; my flip flops dropping to the ground.

Rome (Marked Men #3) by Jay Crownover

I absolutely loved this book. This book was my favorite since Rule. I loved that Rule and Shaw was in this book a lot more. The characters, the plot, their love story and everything in between was great. I loved the little banter between Rome and Cora. Rome is sexy and mysterious. I like how he is closed off and doesn't really talk much or show emotion. It makes him hotter to me.  Cora is feisty. I liked her no take attitude. She doesn't let anyone walk over her and she protects her friends with everything she has. She kind of reminded me of Shaw a little. I loved Ace in this book too. I got to see a different side of him and he didn't seem so horrible like he was in Jet. He turned out to be a pretty good guy.

Rome started off where Jet ended. Everyone is at Rule and Shaw's Fourth of July barbeque. Rome is being captain no fun and being rude to everyone. Cora gets pissed off at Rome and pours her beer on him. Rome gets mad and started a fight with Rule. Rome goes to a bar and gets trashed and gets into a fight with a biker. They owner of the bar takes him to the hospital. As payment for destroying the bar, Rome has to fix it up.

On one of the days Rome is at the bar fixing it up, he was having a bad day and the owner decided he needed a break and lets him get drunk. He gets too drunk to drive and the owner calls Rule but Cora answers and comes to Rome's aid. She takes him back to her place to sleep it off. She ends up stuck sleeping in the same bed with him but who wouldn't mind sleeping with Rome. He is pretty damn hot. The next morning, they wake up and ended up having sex. Afterwards, Cora takes Rome back to the bar to get her car.

The book goes on with Cora and Rome going back and forth with fighting then making up. Rome is dealing with a lot of stuff that happen with him when he was deployed. He also is trying to get over his younger brother Remy's death. Cora is dealing with the possibility of not being able to love someone. Her last boyfriend broke her heart pretty bad and she is scared to trust someone with her whole heart again. As fate would have it, Cora ends up pregnant. Rome is excited and wants to keep the baby. Rome gets shot and almost dies. It makes Cora realized she loves him and wants to be with him.

Things moved a little quick between Rome and Cora. It seemed like one chapter they didn't know each other and then the next they were together and having a baby. I guess the story had to move fast so that the more important things could happen and be dragged out. The timing was a little off too. The book begin on the July 4th. Cora says her baby is due sometime in March. But, Cora and Rome didn't sleep together until the end of July which would make her due date the end of April, early May at the most. I loved the book overall. I can't wait for Nash's book. It seems like its gonna be good. I hope Rome, Cora, Rule and Shaw make an appearance in it.

Undescribable (Undescribable #1) by Shantel Tessier

I know this book has been out for a while but I wanted to read it and I wishing right now I didn't. What can I say about this book besides that it was horrible. The grammar, the spelling, the characters, the plot, the whole book sucked. It seemed like it was never ending. I didn't want to finish the book but for some unknown reason I kept reading it.

First of all, there was no build up to the story. The characters knew each other hours and they were already falling in love and basically living together. In the beginning, like the first 5 pages, I liked Sam. She seemed feisty and strong willed but then she meets Slade and she becomes a wuss. She keeps saying she wants to be independent, she can't dependent on Slade, she fights him for control and blah, blah, blah, but it seem liked she bends to his rules and ways too easily. Slade annoyed me so much I wanted to go through the book and strangle him. He is a typically horn dog that sleeps with everything then he gets a call from Sam who at the time was looking for her bf and then he can't get her out of his head and wants her. The build up sucked. I wanted build up. Characters are suppose to meet and then 5 minutes later long each other.

Slade was suppose to be an attorney by day and a cocky foul mouth playboy by night. He is suppose to have a different girl in his bed every night. However, Slade did not deliver on anything. He is always taking off work to hang out with Sam and he only talks dirty when they're having sex or about to have sex. He wasn't a playboy at all. He had a couple of different girls but it wasn't on playboy status.

This book seemed more like a teenage high school love story with sex more than an adult romance novel. The way the characters started to feel about each other so soon after meeting reminds me of teenagers doing the same thing. It also pissed me off how the author didn't really seem like she knew where she wanted the characters going or doing. At first, it seems like Sam didn't have a dad. She says her parents divorced when she was really young, they hated each other and she was surprised when her dad and he left her everything. But then a couple pages later she says she was a daddy's girl. I was confused with this. It also seemed like Sam's mom not liking her was the author trying to make the reader feel sorry for Sam.

Sam breaks up with her bf Jax early on in the book and it seems like she should be sad about it. She was with him for 8 months, he was her first and she moved to a new town to be with him but the day after she breaks up with him she is all over Slade. I don't see how Sam being in town for 8 months and everyone she knows there already loves her. She said herself, she didn't go out much so how can anyone really know her.

It seem like this book wasn't well written or thought out. It seem like as the story went on the author just threw things in to try and make it better. There were so many thing that was wrong with this book, I couldn't remember them all. I didn't not like this book at all. I had high hopes but was let down. I liked the first couple of chapters but the book just falls apart after that. It seemed once the main characters got together the book lost its appeal.

"Those are naughty thoughts clouding those brown eyes."

"In the naughty thoughts or in the tub?"
I swatted at him. "The tub."
"I will join you in both."

Beck (Corps Security #3) by Harper Sloan

Beck was an okay book. I loved this series and I am probably going to be very sad when it ends. I loved how entwines all the characters and it alternates character's POV. I love knowing what the other character is thinking and feeling. I think dual POV books are my favorite. However, Beck isn't my favorite book from the series. So far Axel's story is my favorite and it will probably change when I read Maddox's book.

Beck starts out with Dee having a little back story of why she is the way she is. Then it picks up when she is an adult but 2 years before. She meets Beck, they have some fun, she freaks out, they end their sort of relationship. The stuff that happens 2 years before happens in the previous 2 books. It explains why she is so screw up and everything that was happening to her mentality during those books. Then the book gets to the current time and year. Beck is still in love with Dee and Dee is trying to live. She really isn't living but existing. She is having a hard time letting go of everything that happen to her when she was younger and during the past couple of years. She pushes everyone away or puts a fake smile on and makes everyone think she is fine.

After Dee ended her relationship with Beck, she got close to Maddox. He is there for her and is the only one that knows some of what happen to her. She isn't with him sexual. He is just a close friend. She has him looking into her business. She noticed some things were off and wanted to know what was going on. Beck talks Dee is getting help for her problems and she slowly starts making progress into her recovery.

Dee gets a called that she is needed in another state for her company. She gets attacked when she gets there. Beck runs to her side and stays with her the whole time she is in the hospital. Then he takes her home and doesn't let her leave his side. Beck is scared Dee is going to slip back into herself. However, Dee doesn't. She is tried of living inside her self and being scared. She decides the only way to fully heal is to talk about what happen to her. She tells Beck about her past. Then she tells her best friends Izzy and Greg. Izzy and Greg are hurt and sad that something was wrong and they were too busy living their lives to notice anything. Greg is also glad Beck stay by Dee side through everything.

After the attack, the boys at Corps Security try to get to the bottom of things. Dee gets a threatening note. Beck gets scared again for Dee. Dee almost gets attacked again but Coop somehow gets shot instead and dies. Everyone is dealing with that. Beck has always been the rock for Dee and during the grief period after Coop's death Dee gets to be Beck's rock. Dee loves being there for Beck. She gets to pay him back for everything he has done for her.

Dee does get attacked a third time. She is with Coop's brother this time and at home but she fights back. She is tired of being scared and weak and decides to fight. Beck is proud of Dee when he finds her and she is fighting a man 3x her size. There is a lot of other stuff that happens. There is some sex, some crazy truths about Dee's past that come out and a shocking Maddox's confession.

I enjoyed this book. I didn't think it was as great as Axel's book but it was okay. I liked Dee and Beck in the previous 2 books and I was finally glad when they got together. They had been through so much and I was ready for them to have their happy ending. Dee did get of my nerves a little. I know it's hard to talk about your past and your past can screw you up more than everyone thinks but Beck was a constant person in her life. She should have open up to him a little in the beginning and let him know what was going on. I loved Beck. He stay by her side and never gave up on her. Dee kept thinking he was going to run and I'm glad he didn't. I loved the side of Dee that Beck brought out. She was funny, happy and carefree. Towards the end of the book I really started liking Dee again. I hated her parents and the author could of just killed them off in the book. I know she was screw up partly because of them and I hated parents that don't love their kids no matter if it's just a book. They still pissed me off.

I can't wait for Maddox's book. I want to know about him. I hate having to wait to the last book in the series to get his story. I think Maddox is my favorite character in the series. He is mysterious and I can't wait.

Beck (Corps Security #3) By Harper Sloan

I am currently reading this book. I like it so far. Although I want to strangle Dee through half the book. I just wish the author would write Maddox's story already. I really want to read that one really bad.

Trust In Me (Wait For You #1.5) By Jennifer Armentrout

I loved this book. I love the whole series but I think this book was my favorite. Trust In Me is Cam's POV of what happens in Wait For You which is in Avery's POV. It is basically the same book but there are parts that are different. I got to see a different side to Cam, his friends, his family and what goes on in his head.

While I was reading Wait For You, I kept wondering what Cam was doing or how was he feeling and I got to find out. There are some parts in this book that aren't in Wait For You and I loved those parts. Cam hanging out with his friends, talking to his parents about Avery, and having a little heart to heart with his sister. I think Cam's relationship with his sister is what makes him so caring and loving to Avery and her problems.

Cam is one of my book boyfriends. He just is so sexy, charming, caring and funny. I will never look at cookies the same after reading this book. And I want a pet turtle now. I liked how Cam called Avery shortcake in his head through the whole book and at the end let it slip out. The way Cam describes Avery, she kind of does remind me of strawberry shortcake.

I glad the author wrote a book in Cam's POV.

Rome (Marked Men #3) by Jay Crownover

Sometimes the wrong choice can be just right . . .

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever.

My apprehension must have been displayed on my face, because the eyebrow under the scar danced up and he finally stopped touching me, stopped dropping sucking little kisses along my collarbone, and stopped running featherlight fingertips over the flowers decorating my side. He stared down at me and I was fascinated by a drop of sweat that started at his temple and crested over his cheek, wound its way down his neck, and tracked over a pec muscle that looked like it belonged on a marble statue. I wasn't familiar with this kind of restraint, this kind of will, so I just traced the track that little drop of moisture had trailed and stopped at his nipple. 

"That's never going to fit."

The words were strangled, like I hadn't had anything to drink in a hundred years or more. We were so close, this was so raw and open I didn't know what to do with him or with me. My words were meant to be funny, to slow things down, but I sounded scared, even to my own ears, and I know it wasn't just because he was far more than any man I had ever been with, or maybe it was.

That single dark eyebrow danced even higher and that little half grin that undid me the other day flashed across his face. I guess he decided that my words were a challenge and not a warning because the next thing I knew, all his attention switched to that already damp and needy place between my legs.

Up In The Air Trilogy by R.K. Lilley

I read the Up In The Air Trilogy by R.K. Lilley when the books first came out. They sort of reminded me of Fifty Shades of Grey Series. I think that reason alone was why I decided to read it. Older, rich, billionaire man and young naive women who is a virgin. Who doesn't love a sexy older man? There were a lot of similarities between the 2 series, although fifty shades was my favorite when comparing them. Which isn't saying much.

I couldn't really get into this series but I had to know what happen, so I had to read all the books. I was glad when I finished the series. The characters were not believable and their so called love story just didn't work for me. I think the book could have been great if it was written a little different. The plot was a good plot. A flight attendant meets billionaire. I wish I could meet a billionaire or maybe even a millionaire on a flight. It would be nice.

As I read this trilogy, there was so many times that I would read something and I would want to go in and rewrite it. I wanted to make the story better and more believable. Some of the characters were okay and had good chemistry but the 2 main characters needed some work. 

However, it just came to my attention that there is going to be a 4th book in the series called Mr. Beautiful,  More Info Here. I don't see why there would be a need for that. It's suppose to be a male's POV of the series. Hopefully, its better than the other books in the trilogy but I doubt it.

The Destiny of Violet & Luke (The Coincidence #3) by Jessica Sorensen

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you.

I’ve got my fake smile plastered on my face and no one in the crowd of people surrounding me can tell if it’s real or not. None of them really give a shit either, just like I don’t. I’m only here, pretending to be a ray of sunshine, for three reasons: (1) I owe Preston, my last foster parent I had before I turned eighteen, big time, because he gave me a home when no one else would; and (2) because I need the money; and (3) I love the rush of knowing that at any moment I could get busted so much—so much that it’s become addicting, like an alcoholic craves booze.

What I'm Currently Reading...

I have been sick for the last couple of weeks and I didn't want to read anything that was too long or took to much time and so far this book is perfect for my sick self. It's a quick, fast pace book and I read the same book Wait For Me which is from Avery's POV. This book is in Cam's POV. It so far a little different from Wait For Me.
