MY REVIEW

3.5 Stars!

An unexpectedly good MC Romance box set. (I am seriously picky about my MC romances). Heaven’s Rejects includes a novella and two full-length novels featuring the sexy men of the MC and the women who they love. The books are emotional, exciting and intriguing reads.

New Release ~ 4.5 Stars for Every Promise You Made by J. E. Parker!

Title: Every Promise You Made

Series: Redeeming Love Series

Author: J.E. Parker

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: May 24, 2018

Red Hatter Book Blog – “Their story is one of the most powerful and emotional stories I have ever read.”

Sheridan – “I think their story will stay with me forever!”

Jenn the Readaholic – “This book was absolutely fantastic.”

Christine Jalili – “This book completely gutted me but also left me feeling like they had so much love.”

Two shattered lives. One final vow. 

Hope

Growing up, I had everything.

A loving big brother, a great family and a happy life.

But then it all changed. Now, my entire world is shattered.

The only thing that still makes sense is how I feel about Evan.

I love him more than anything, but it’s not enough anymore.

I’m tired of chasing after him. Tired of being held at arm’s length.

I can’t live like this any longer.

Walking away will destroy me.

Yet what other choice do I have?

Evan

Growing up, my best friend’s sister was always around.

I took care of her, I protected her. She was my friend too.

Then one night she became more. So much more.

But then all hell broke loose.

I screwed up. I became the reason for her pain.

My mistake ruined everything.

Afraid of destroying what we have left, I keep her at arm’s length.

Fed up with my distance, she’s ready to end it all.

That can’t happen.

It’s time to face facts… Hope is mine.

My Review

4.5 Stars!

Amazing writing, a heart-filled story and characters that weaves their way into your heart and take root! This book requires an entire box of tissues, copious bottles of wine and a quiet place. Trust me. You will want all of that.

Guilt, love, regret and family are the major themes in the book. Hope, Evan and Ryker gutted me and their story shattered my emotions, but I would read this book again and again!

J.E. Parker is an American romance author who was born and raised in the great state of North Carolina. A southern belle at heart, she’s addicted to sweet tea, Cheerwine, and peach cobbler.

Not only is J.E. married to the man of her dreams (albeit a total pain in the rear), she’s also the mother of a herd of sweet (sometimes), and angelic (only when they’re sleeping) children. Despite their occasional demonic behavior and bottomless stomachs, J.E. loves her little tribe more than words could ever express.

On the weekends, you can find her sitting on the couch, cheering on (or cursing) her favorite football team, stuffing her face with junk food, and guzzling a bottle of cheap red wine.

When she’s not busy making sure her husband doesn’t burn the house down or acting as a referee for her fighting children, J.E. enjoys reading, writing (obviously), and listening to a wide variety of music.

Title: Devil Side

Author: Lacey Dailey

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About DevilSide:

Unable to continue living on the path her father created for her, Gigi Moretti does something she’s never done before.

She takes a risk.

When musician Maxwell Mitchell waltzes into an old diner in the early morning up to his elbows in secrets, he offers Gigi the perfect escape from the future she’s never wanted.

It takes an over the top demand from her father and a shocking revelation from her fake fiancé to get her to pack her bags and ride shotgun on Max’s spontaneous tour across the country.

As she and Max grow closer, Gigi learns what it’s like to throw out her overbearing workload and be an actual 21-year-old. She quits her job, eats too many Cheetos, tosses out her pink wardrobe, and takes a job as Max’s manager.

She’s finally free, living her life free of her dad’s grip and falling in deep with the musician whose songs hold stories no one will ever uncover and whose past includes a secret hero named Aiden he credits for his survival.

The more time they spend together, the deeper they fall and the closer she gets to the truth. Despite the unknown, she’s happy. She has a job she enjoys, she’s making plans for a future she’s actually excited about, and she’s living with a boyfriend who adores her.

Everything is perfect.

And then she meets Aiden.

And it all changes.

MY REVIEW

Top Read of 2018!

Wow! This book was amazing!

I went into this book honestly not knowing what to expect. The blurb intrigued me and I had several thoughts on who Aiden was, but I can honestly say I was not expecting Aiden to be who he was. Dailey reveals the secret of Aiden early on. I loved that. As a reader, I felt omniscient and a little bit powerful. Despite knowing about Aiden, most of the characters did not. It was pretty fantastic.

Gigi has lived under her father’s oppressive thumb her entire life. She wants out and she wants to make her own choices. Max is a carefree musician with a sexy smile and an unmatched zest for life. When Gigi accepts an invitation to join Max on a summer-long road trip, they grow closer and slowly fall for one another. But Max is hiding something big that could threaten their happiness.

I am enamored with this book and the characters. The first few chapters, I wasn’t too sure, but it grew on me quickly and became a page turner I had trouble putting down. The author takes great care with her characters, developing them in measured increments just big enough to keep us hooked. I wanted to jump ahead, but I just couldn’t. I had a searing need to experience it all.

The book builds nicely, developing the characters of Max and Gigi and their relationship at the perfect pace. It all leads to a big climax at approximately 75%. Many books I’ve read reach this point and then rush to the finish line. There was no rush here, but it wasn’t a leisurely stroll either. The final fourth of the book was yet another example of Lacey Dailey’s writing. We are treated to resolutions and discoveries. Loose ends are tied up. Relationships change. It was a perfectly satisfying and sweet HEA with a really a nice epilogue that just made me so happy!

I am so thrilled to have discovered this new to me author and to have read this amazing book!

Exclusive Excerpt:

I drive home in comfortable silence. I don’t think I’ve ever been content with comfortable silence with a woman before, which is just another reminder of how Avery is different from everyone else. She doesn’t feel the need to talk all the time for the sake of talking.

As we start to approach the city limits of Rivers Edge, I start to wonder what I should do next. If this were any other girl, I’d drive back to her house with no hesitation whatsoever and take her inside. But this is Avery, and like I said, she’s different.

“So, I thought maybe we’d stop by my house for a bit if that’s okay with you. This way, someone like Jake doesn’t see my truck parked in your drive and make trouble.” Even to my own ears, I sounded a little nervous as I said it. What the hell? It’s not like it’s my first time taking a girl home.

Then it hits me.

It is the first time I’m taking a girl home, to my house. I always go to their place. But the thought of Avery in my house, my bed, just feels right.

“That sounds good,” she says with another shy smile. I love that smile; it’s filled with happiness and innocence. I turn off Main Street and head down Lincoln towards my place. When I reach my house, I pull into the drive and kill the engine. Quickly, I hop out and walk around to her door. When I open it, she seems slightly hesitant, maybe even nervous.

“I can take you home if you want.”

“No,” she quickly throws out there. “I want to be here…with you.” There’s that damn smile again. I extend my hand to her and help her down from the truck and head inside.

When we step inside the dark recesses of my living room, I start to walk towards the lamp but she catches me by the arm, stopping me. I turn to look at her. The only light in the room is what moonlight is filtering through the window. Standing there in my darkened living room, light glowing off her blond hair, she looks stunning. She extends her hand up to cradle my cheek, her other hand runs up my abdomen from my stomach to rest on my chest. I step closer to her, looking deep into her eyes. She must have realized she was holding her breath because she lets out a big breath, which comes out a little shaky. I look deep into her crystal blue eyes, and that’s when I see it. Lust. Desire. Trust.

My resolve shatters like a glass vase with that one look as I push her back against my front door. Our lips are urging each other on as our desire for each other completely takes over. She runs her tongue down my neck, and I almost come completely undone in my pants like a teenage boy by that one simple move. I cradle her ass in my hands and lift her up. She threads her legs around my waist, her hands diving into my hair. I lean against her, pushing her back into the door, and she moans. It’s the sexiest fucking sound I’ve ever heard and all I can think about is being deep inside her, making her moan over and over and over again.

I press hot kisses along her chin, down her delectable neck and lick the spot where her pulse is rapidly beating. “Tell me to stop, Avery. Tell me to stop right now and I will. But if you say nothing, I’m taking you back to my room and burying myself deep inside you. I’m going to make you come and scream my name. All. Night. Long. Tell me you want this as much as I do.”

“I want this,” she whispers without hesitation and that’s all I need to hear.

New Release: 4.5 Stars for Defiant Temptation by Lynn Stookes!

Title: Defiant Temptation

Series: Harden #3

Author: Lynn Stookes

Genre: Adult, Suspense Romance

Published: March 24, 2017

Harper Andrews hasn’t had it easy; abandoned by her mother, dated a scheming boyfriend, and fought for her father’s life against cancer. But she’s always prevailed, until now when her world seems to be falling apart.

Tristan Page never loses control; not at the death and reemergence of his sister’s cheating husband, the attack on her life, or even when his company seems to be failing. He’s always in command of his actions until one woman threatens to make his world spiral.

Tristan plays on Harper’s last nerve.

Harper tries Tristan’s patience and self-control.

Forced together, in a search for her mother, they battle their attraction for one another. Harper wants him. Tristan wants what he can’t have.

Can they defy temptation or will their explosive chemistry set them on a path for self-destruction?

My Review:

4.5 Stars!

This is the little series that could.  It gets better and better with each book!  Defiant Temptation is my favorite of the series yet.

This poor group of Harden residents has some really rotten luck.  This time we get Tristan and Harper’s story (finally!).  Tristan has shown interest in Harper since book one, but he has never acted on it.  In fact, through the first two books, Harper and Tristan have run hot and cold with a lot of arguing.  From the start of Defiant Temptation, we get more of the same and so much more.  These two are like a bomb ticking away until the ultimate messy explosion of feelings.  And it was messy.

Here is the thing about this series and this book in particular, while the relationship/romance is certainly the spotlight, the mystery runs a close second.  We don’t have to wait until the end for feelings to be declared, but we do have to wait to see if everything will work out.  These books feature feelings and relationships, but give you the added bonus of some pretty crazy and mysterious danger.

Lynn Stookes knocks it out of the park with this third book in the Harden Series!  Danger, intrigue, a crazy mystery, lots of feels and an intense relationship come together for an engrossing read you won’t be able to put down!

Defiant Temptation Excerpt © Lynn Stookes 2017

“What ya’ doing man?” Blake questions.

“Working on a case,” I fib. I am working on a case, but he doesn’t need to know it involves waiting outside Harper’s campus while she finishes her classes.

“You sure about that?”

“Yeah,” I pause. What does he know? “Why? What’s up?”

“Oh, you know, nothing,” he chuckles. “Mrs. Nelson stopped by the station today.”

“Yeah? Everything okay with her?”

“She’s perfectly fine,” his voice cracks with a laugh.

Sawyer’s voice booms over the line, “Is that Tristan?”

“Yes.” I hear shuffling in the background.

“You asking about Mrs. Nelson?”

“I’m trying to if you would shut your mouth,” Blake retorts.

“Put it on speaker,” Sawyer demands.

“Such a demanding little shit,” Blake mumbles.

“But you love me anyway.”

“If you didn’t make Dani happy, I’d probably find a dark hole for you.”

I chuckle at the banter between two of my best friends. We’ve always had an easy friendship, even though our lives couldn’t be more different. Blake has a large loving family; I just have Kylie, and now Dani; Sawyer has an alcoholic father he doesn’t see much. Such different upbringings, but we’ve always been close. Even after years away, it was easy to pick up where we left off.

“Hey, Tristan,” Sawyer says into the phone.

“What the hell do you want?” I counter, dreading what they have to say. If it has to do with Mrs. Nelson, it’s nothing good.

“Like I was saying, we had a visit from Mrs. Nelson today,” Blake explains.

“Yeah, so?”

Sawyer chuckles, “She had a story to tell us.” Another laugh bursts from him. “She wanted us to talk to you.”

“About?”

“About your discretion.” Blake joins in the laughter.

“Discretion?” Confusion runs through me. I have no clue what the old bird is talking about.

“She saw you and Harper pull out of Harry’s place early this morning,” Blake explains.

“Too early for anything pure,” Sawyer snorts. “And your devious ways will get Ms. Innocent Harper into trouble. You better make an honest woman of her.”

That damn old woman. What the hell is she doing? Watching my every move? I remain quiet, hoping they’ll move on, but knowing better.

“Is it true?” Blake asks, trying to contain his amusement.

“What?”

“Are your devious ways corrupting the innocent Harper?” Sawyer questions.

“No!” I shout, frustration rushing through my veins.

“Banks wasn’t happy when he heard the news from Mrs. Nelson,” Blake comments.

“Apparently, it wasn’t the first time she caught you in a compromising position with Harper,” Sawyer adds.

“Something about you leaving her apartment after an afternoon nookie session.”

They’re ganging up on me. I’m never going to hear the end of this unless I shut them down.

“For the last fucking time, there’s nothing happening with Harper. I got suckered into giving her a ride this morning by Harry,” I say, and to make sure my point is made, I add, “Why would I waste my time with a girl like her? She probably doesn’t even know what to do with a dick. Have you looked at her? She has virgin written all over her face.” The words make my stomach curl, but I need them to drop it. “Besides, she’s not even that cute. I like my woman with curves. Harper is a walking stick. It’d be like fucking a board.”

The small gasp behind me has me instantly regretting my words.

“Gotta go,” I say into the phone and put it in my pocket without waiting for a response. Slowly, I turn.

Harper stands before me, a flaming beauty, seething with anger. Her gorgeous red hair is in a tight ponytail, her eyes brimming with unshed tears. Fuck.

“Harper,” I whisper, reaching for her.

She takes a step back, holding her books close to her chest.

“I…uh…” I stutter, trying to think of an excuse. “I never meant for you to hear that.”

I definitely said the wrong thing because a notebook barrels towards my head. I quickly duck, avoiding it, but not quick enough to dodge a textbook hitting me in the eye.

“Fuck!”

I reach up, grabbing my eye as the book hits the ground, breaking the seam, pages flying away. She threw books at me. Hard. I look at Harper with my good eye. Her hand is on her chest, shock on her face.

“Are you happy now, Harper?”

“I didn’t…” she begins.

“Didn’t plan on throwing a book at my fucking face?” I growl. “Didn’t plan on acting like a child?”

I take a menacing step towards her, and she quickly retreats, a hand keeping distance between us.

“What, Harper? Don’t tell me you’re scared because you heard something you didn’t want to hear. The truth.”

If I’m going to be a dick, might as well go all in, right?

Harper hisses. “Screw you, Tristan Page! You’re nothing but a chauvinistic dick. I don’t know why I ever wanted you!” She pokes my chest, emphasizing each word. “You’ve made it abundantly clear that you are…you are…”

“Come on, little girl,” I egg on. “Spit it out. What am I?”

Her amber eyes meet mine, dancing like they’re on fire. Fuck if her pissed off isn’t hotter than shit. I seriously screwed up. Her breathing is heavy and ragged, pushing her small but perfect breasts towards me, barely brushing my chest.

“You are,” she pauses, “Nothing. You’re absolutely nothing, Tristan Page.”

She tries to walk away, but I pull her arm, forcing her between me and the truck.

“Nothing?” I question, her words hitting too close to home. “Really?”

Her breath hitches, arousal dancing in her eyes. Before I can stop myself, my mouth is on hers, brutally taking what I want. I nip at her lips, begging her to let me in. I move my hand from her hip, tracing her skin until I brush the swell of her breast. She gasps, allowing me the entrance I crave. I sweep in, devouring her sweet taste, knowing I could easily get addicted.

Harper whimpers when I push her against the hood. My body is so rigid that I literally ache. My erection rubs against her stomach, and I lift her, wanting our bodies to match up. Her leg wraps around my waist. I rock into her, but distant whistles and cat calls filter through my lust induced haze.

Harper must hear them, too, because she pulls back, breaking the best fucking kiss of my life. Avoiding her eyes, I look around at an audience. People even have their fucking phones out, taking pictures and videos.

“Shit.”

My Review:

3.5 Stars!

A second chance romance, stalkers and danger, oh my!  You get all that and more in this first novel in the Harden Mysteries series from Lynn Stookes.

Kylie lost her husband and unborn child in a mugging that got out of control.  Now, she’s back in her hometown of Harden, Texas, living with her older brother and she is face-to-face with her old friend and crush, Blake.  Not to mention, there is a stalker/killer after her and everyone she loves is in danger.

I gave this 3.5 stars for a couple of reason.  One, this was Stookes first book.  While the plot was great, there was just too much going on all at once.  I had a hard time deciding if the second chance romance should have been spotlighted or if the mystery/suspense portion of the book was front and center.  Unfortunately, I felt the romance took a back seat to the mystery.  My other criticism was (and you might think I’ve lost it) the detail… there was almost too much in the way of mundane details that didn’t particularly add to the story.  However, despite that, this book was good.  I thought the plot was clever and it really sucked me in.  I liked every characters.  Seriously, all of them… well, maybe not the bad guys, but you get what I mean.

A great freshman effort and a nice start to what I think will be a great series!

 

My Review:

4 Stars!

This second book in the Harden Mysteries series brings us Dani and Sawyer’s story and it is pretty amazing!

Dani and Sawyer have a love-hate relationship.  Sawyer, a playboy, wants Dani.  Dani wants nothing to do with Sawyer and his playboy ways.  One night, during a particularly tense situation, things get hot and heavy, but the next morning, it’s back to fighting for these two.

We get another Harden mystery.  This time, Dani is the one in trouble and Sawyer is determined to keep her safe.  I really enjoyed this one.  The sparks fly between Sawyer and Dani.  The great cast of characters is back and we get introduced to even more.  They mystery is a doozy and there is even a return that I never saw coming!  Stookes’s writing has improved since book one and I look forward to more!

Danger, intrigue, cute as a button kids, old friends and an amazing romance make Ultimate Deception a great read!

 

Lynn Stookes was born and raised in the amazing state of Texas, where she currently resides with her husband of five years. They have one rambunctious four year old son and three furry children, who create the chaos she couldn’t live without.

One day, Lynn took her passion (maybe obsession is more apt) for romance books and mystery shows and wrote her first romantic suspense novel, Fatal Obsession, Book 1 in the Harden Series.

When Lynn isn’t writing or working her day job, you can find her reading on her Kindle, spending time with her family and friends, or playing on Facebook. She loves running, coffee, and country music in no particular order.

Title: The Lonely Girl
Author: Gracie Wilson
Genre: New Adult
Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing

Being Lonely is only the beginning…

One night can change it all. One argument can leave you reeling. A look can take you to a place you can never return from again. What happens when one day, you wake up and find your world has been turned upside down? The person you love is gone. The life you thought you’d have is no longer one you see being able to get back to. You lost the one person you loved more than anything. They tell you to move on, try. For them. It’s what they would want. But is it really? So I try.

This time, will be different. I slowly start to put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, only to have it broken again, by someone I thought I trusted. My heart’s barely healed, my world just starting to make sense again, when tragedy and devastation strikes. My circumstances leave me asking one question… Is it worth the risk to love again?

Look for her in the trees enjoying nature’s wonders, traveling to see the latest animal conservations, or at aquariums all around the world. This girl loves nature and all animals. She has many pets and is always adding new additions. The more the merrier in her mind. Sitting under the shade reading a book, letting the world around her pass by, while she is safe in her bubble of imagination. Well, that is where she’d love to stay. She is a softball player, can be talked into the occasional Karaoke and loves going out to dance. She is a first generation Canadian living in Ontario. Her family is from Scotland, so finding her in the hot sun for very long is unlikely, but give her rain and thunderstorms and she’s golden.

Audra Madison simply wanted to walk in the shoes of Emily Cavanaugh, a free-spirited teenager who died too young. After all, Audra wasn’t supposed to be here.

Thanks to Emily, Audra has a second chance at life. She’s doing all the things that seemed impossible just two years ago: Go to college. Date. Stargaze in the Rocky Mountains. Maybe get a tattoo. You know, live.

Jake Cavanaugh, a photographer with mysterious, brooding gray eyes, agrees to help chronicle her newfound experiences. She makes him laugh, one of the only people who can these days. As they delve into each other’s pasts – and secrets – the closer they become.

But she’s guarded and feels like she can’t trust anyone, including herself.

And he’s struggling with the fact that his beloved sister’s heart beats inside her.

My Review:

4.5 Stars!

In a genre filled with so much of the same, The Heartbeat Hypothesis comes along and gives you something different, something refreshing and something that will stick with you long after you’re done.

Audra received Jake’s sister’s heart in a heart transplant and she desperately wants to honor Jake’s sister, Emily, in some way. I mean, really, how sweet is that? It’s definitely sweet and highly emotional. I loved the honest responses from Jake and the timid yet determined way that Audra had about her. She spent so much of her life sick and now has this new lease on life, but she has walked herself into an emotional minefield with Jake. She is a constant reminder of his sister and Audra knows that Jake is hiding something. This whole book was amazing. I was two chapters in and just knew I was going to need to find a box of tissues. I was so right. I cried at the sad parts and I cried harder at the HEA. Oh that HEA was so beautiful.

If you are looking for something a bit different from the typical romances out there, then you are going to want to read this book. Heck, even if you don’t want something different, you want to read this. This talented author has written something truly magical!

ABOUT LINDSEY FRYDMAN

Lindsey has been writing since she was nine years old, when she discovered the awesomeness that is Harriet the Spy. Her books always include a romance, though sometimes there’s an added sci-fi or magical realism twist. She lives in Columbus, Ohio (where the weather is never quite right). Her BFA in Photography and Graphic Design has granted her a wide assortment of creative knowledge that serves as inspiration (and not much else). When she’s not crafting YA and NA stories, you’ll likely find her spending waaay too much time on Pinterest, playing a video game, singing show-tunes, or performing in a burlesque show—because she enjoys giving her introversion a worthy adversary. (Plus, it’s the closest to Broadway she’ll ever get.) Lindsey was a proud 2016 Pitch Wars Mentee and thoroughly adores being a part of the wonderful writing community. THE HEARTBEAT HYPOTHESIS is her debut novel.

New Release: 4 Stars for Notes of the Past by Jodie Larson!

Title: Notes of the Past
Series: Lightning Strikes #2
Author: Jodie Larson
Release Date: March 20, 2017
Add to TBR

I love women. And it’s easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country’s hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don’t do complicated. Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That’s when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I’ve ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn’t just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I’ve built? We’re connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

*May be read as a standalone*  

 

My Review:

4 Stars!

 

What happens when you and your ex are forced back together after nine years of hurt feelings?  You get this awesome, emotional book from Jodie Laren.

 

Notes of the Past is pretty great.  Myles and Tatum were high school sweethearts who planned to be together forever, until Tatum left without a word, leaving Myles alone, bitter and broken.

 

I have to tell you, I was a little disgusted with both Myles and Tatum’s behavior.  They both had hurt feelings and yet they couldn’t stop purposely hurting each other.  Love is ugly stuff in this book, but it makes for a fantastic story or second chance love.  Myles and Tatum are pretty great MCs and then you add in the rest of the band and a few significant others as secondary characters and you can’t help but get sucked in.

 

Jodie Larson has written an emotional rollercoaster about two broken people who were once whole with each other and now have to find their way back there again.

Jodie Larson lives along the shores of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota with her husband and four beautiful daughters. Writing has always been something she enjoys and uses it as an escape, in addition to getting lost in her numerous books. Her family is highly supportive of both her love for reading and writing. A lover of all things happily ever after, she writes romantic novels because the world could use a little more love.

Move on with your life, they said.
Forget her, they said.
But how could Ben Edwards forget the woman who was supposed to be his forever? When Grace Stevens disappeared—without a word, without a trace—she took half his soul with her.
Despite the heartbreak, Ben tried. He tried to take their advice by pursuing his career. He tried to find fulfillment in his work. He tried to find peace.
Grace had been the love of his life. Her fingerprints were on every surface of his existence. He had success and wealth. He had everything, except her.
Then fate stepped in one serendipitous night. The hope he’d held on to for three long, agonizing years appeared before him in the form of a picturesque beauty.
Was she real, or an apparition returning to haunt him? He wasn’t sure, but he wouldn’t stop until he found his missing love. Every minute mattered, and he wouldn’t waste a second chance.
