New Release ~ 3.75 Stars for Mess Me Up by Lani Lynn Vale

When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.

Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.

No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone.

Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.

She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.

And he doesn’t even know her name.

He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.

Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.

Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.

Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.

3.75 Stars!

I’m going to just start off with this… make sure you have a box of tissues near by, because this one is a tear jerker.

That being said, it was just okay for me. Why? Because I just didn’t connect with Isadora. I tried. I really did, but…

The story is definitely more than I was expecting from an MC romance. The story was deep and moving and sensitive. Rome broke my heart and I felt his hurt and pain. I appreciated Izzy’s response and support.

A good book, but I would have liked it better if I had connected with Izzy more.

This is my favorite Kendall Ryan book to date! A sweet, sexy tale of friends to lovers.

Cam, Natalie and Jack have been friends since they were kids. The were a triple threat and managed to stay friends well into their late twenties. Cam and Jack made Natalie off limits all those years ago, but something changes between Cam and Natalie and suddenly, after they start seeing each other as more.

Friends to lover is a great trope to begin with. Cam and Natalie go through the usual emotions and questions about how taking things beyond friendship might ruin their important friendship, but then Ryan adds in the third friend, Jack, and things get a little stickier. Kendall Ryan’s writing is always good, but in this book it was just organic without a bunch of excess. There was no dark elements, no excessive outside interference. Kendall Ryan just went with the simple, tried and true formula of friends to lovers and gave us sexy, sweet goodness. Also, I just felt more connected to the characters and their story in FWF.

This a perfect weekend read!

Blog Tour ~ 4 Stars for The Jack by M. K. Harkins

Today we have the blog tour of THE JACK by MK Harkins! Check out the tour and be sure to grab your copy today!

 

Title: THE JACK

Author: MK Harkins

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

About The Jack:

What matters more to Archer: saving the woman he loves but can never have, protecting humanity, or avoiding a prison sentence that would stretch for eternity?

 

Archer is a half breed, caught between two opposing heritages – the Jacks, a bloodthirsty race who kills for sport, and the Readers, a docile race trying to save humankind. Two years ago, he betrayed the Readers, though, in a last-minute change of heart, saved them from ultimate destruction. But now he’s all alone, wallowing in unrequited love.

 

Sadie is an Immortal Seer with a dangerous calling: she must hunt down and destroy the last of the vengeful Jacks. But her quirky humor and gentle spirit make her an unlikely fit for the job.

 

Archer is drawn to Sadie’s pure, kindhearted nature, rekindling hope he might not have to live a solitary life, but he has no idea the danger he’s in.

 

When fate forces the mortal enemies to work together, Sadie must determine which side Archer is on, how much of his charm is real, and if she should follow through with her directive: should she kill him or save him?

Quesarasera Book Blog

4 Stars!!

Poor Archer! Talk about having the weight of the world on your shoulders… or in this case humanity.

This is the first book I have read by M. K. Harkins.

The Jack was a twisty, suspense-filled read. The romance is great, not too angsty and fairly tame. This is because, while the romantic aspect plays a big part in the story, it isn’t the entire story. There are many twists and turns throughout the book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Difficult choices must be made. Consequences must be considered. Sadie and Archer are great characters with interesting backstories. Sadie’s was less developed than Archers, but there was enough.

I enjoyed The Jack, but I think I would have liked it more had I read the first book in the series. My understanding is that they are all interconnected standalones, but I think I would have had a better understanding of their world if I had read The Reader. That being said, I was able to get right into the book and it didn’t deter me in any way.

5 Stars!

This is book goodness pure and simple!

(If you have not read the prequel, I highly recommend you read it before reading If We Fall. It is not necessary, but the prequel will set up this book perfectly and it is the best prequel I have ever read!)

This book is filled with angst and tortured hearts. A beautiful story of first love ripped apart leaving two broken people. Josie is torn apart by memories that haunt her. Cole is angry, bitter and miserable. They haven’t seen each other in years and that moment when they see each other again… oh my! I think my heart just burst. It was bittersweet and so full of feels.

Remember, this is book 1 of a duet, so it leaves off on a cliffhanger-ish ending that tore me up!

“Sir?” The security guard phones in from downstairs. “There’s a woman here insisting she needs to speak with you.”

“Name?”

“Josephine Mays.”

“Let her in.”

I turn off the intercom and unlock my office door. A few minutes pass before the door flies open. Josie barges in, her hands fisted and an angry light in her eyes.

“You are an asshole,” she snaps.

“I’ve been told.”

“How dare you pull that kind of stunt?”

“It’s the truth.”

“And we both know damned well you brought it up only because I’m involved.” She tosses her backpack and art portfolio onto a chair. She’s trembling with anger. “I don’t care what you think about me, but bringing the people of this town into our personal shit is low, even for you.”

My shoulders tense. “Even for me? What do you know about me?”

“Nothing anymore.” She slams her hands to her hips, her features twisting. “But I used to know everything about you. Do you remember that? Then you walked out on me right when I needed you the most, proving you were never the man I thought you were. Now I find out that you run this company like a dictator, you’re crushing independent businesses and putting people out of work, and you’re publicly trying to stop me from creating a mural that’s intended for both this town and my parents. What the hell happened to you?”

You happened to me.”

The words fly out of my mouth before I can stop them. The pencil I’m holding breaks in two with the force of my grip.

Josie steps back, her eyes widening. Her dark hair is windblown, her cheeks flushed, her chest heaving under her old army jacket. I’d once had the right to comb her hair back from her forehead, slide my palm over her neck before edging my fingers into her V-necked T-shirt…

Anger crushes my chest. I shove away from my desk and stride toward her. Fear flashes in her green eyes, which pisses me off even more. When the fuck was she ever afraid of me?

I grab the lapels of her jacket, yanking her closer. Our lower bodies collide. She gasps, a little catching noise in the back of her throat that used to get me hot in a second.

It still does. My blood starts to boil. She tilts her head back, her eyes flashing. I lower my head to look at her, fighting to ignore her scent—goddamned summer leaves and cherry candy.

“I once would have done anything for you.” The words grate roughly from my throat. “And then I failed you in the worst possible way. I failed you, I failed Teddy, and I failed your parents.”

She stares at me, her eyes widening. “Cole, I—”

“When you left, I hoped with everything I was that you’d have a chance at a normal life.” I pull her closer, anger warring with the undeniable flare of lust. “That you could be happy again if you weren’t constantly surrounded by reminders of everything you lost. Everything I took from you.”

“Goddamn you, Cole Danforth.” Fire flames over her expression. She plants her hands on my chest and shoves herself away. “The only thing you took from me was you.

 

 

 

 

 

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first crush, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered. After ten years, I’ve returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain. 

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I’d loved is gone. Now he’s a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my resentment and my lust.

Roman Mythology meets modern day!

I enjoyed this unique twist on Roman mythology featuring Mars, God of War, and the woman he loves, Vicky. Mars working as a lawyer was pretty ironic. I felt for him as he constantly heard and felt the pull of the various wars going on on Earth. Vicky was pretty great, especially when she discovered who she really was. This book is scorching! The sex scenes are definitely hot. Overall the story is unique and entertaining.

The exciting and satisfying conclusion to the Blood Type series did not disappoint!

I have loved this series from book 1. The action, the feels, all it has built to this excellent ending. Book two’s cliffhanger nearly have me a heart attack, but it was so worth it in the end.

This is one of the best paranormal romance series I have read. I highly recommend it and this book… it was simply fantastic!

Amazon USAmazon UKiBooksB&NKoboGoogle Play

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Giving up her body for money was supposed to be the hardest part of becoming a blood escort. She never expected to lose her heart to her dark, enigmatic boss, Beckham Anderson. After being taken by a depraved captor who plans to rule the world, Reyna will do anything to return to Beckham.

She just has to find the will to survive this game.

When Jude is offered the position of assistant coach to an online gaming championship, he’d be a fool to turn it down. But when his celebrity crush ends up being on the team, he decides to teach her a lot more than a few gaming tricks.

 

Quin doesn’t date. Being the breadwinner since she was sixteen will do that to a girl. So when the sexy new British coach shows up, she refuses to be distracted. She has goals, and she will achieve them. No matter the cost.

 

But is she willing to lose the only thing that matters to her in order to do so?

4 Stars!

Have you read Kelsie Rae yet? If yes, then you know you’re going to love this. If no, then dive in, because this third book from one of my new faves is absolutely fabulous! I am seriously in awe of Ms. Rae!

Jude, best friend of Derrick from Breezy, has his HEA in the aptly titled Jude. Jude is a sexy Brit and you can’t help but love him. Quincy is a female gamer who has a complicated home life and faces sexism in her world of gaming. Q is asked to join a competitive gaming team which just so happens to be coached by Jude, a former world champion gamer. But these two were aware of each other before they become teammates. Sparks fly immediately.

This was a fun story to read. It features a different world from most NA and contemporary romances, which I found fun and refreshing. Sure, it’s a romance at heart, but with the different world we are treat to a different type of secondary character. I liked the new and different. My only real criticism is the one chapter from the POV of a secondary character to set up the next book. I understand why it was there but it sort messed with the flow of Jude and Quincy’s story. Otherwise, I loved this!

Blog Tour ~ 3 Stars for Rules if Friendship by C. A. Harms

Title: Rules of Friendship

Author: C.A. Harms

Genre: A Friends-To-Lovers Standalone Romance

Release Date: August 6, 2018

As a guy, the number one rule to being best friends with a girl should be simple…

Never, and I do mean never, fall in love with her. 

Oh and you should never fantasize about her either.

Believe me, that situation can get messy really fast and leave you with nothing but one hell of an awkward mess on your hands—literally.

Reese and I have been through everything together; our bond is deep. But I am going down fast, and I fear there is no way to stop it. I spend most of my time hiding my body’s reaction to her because like I said: just friends.

But things are changing. We are changing. 

I no longer see her as just Reese, my best friend. When I look at her now, I see a gorgeous woman that takes my breath away. I see my future. But what if she doesn’t see me the same way? 

I can’t risk losing her… 

The fear of screwing everything up is excruciating. So that’s why I have chosen to stick to the rules. The Rules of Friendship that is. 

She was off limits. Plain and simple. 

But then in she walks wearing her tiny shorts and those tight tops. Come on, a guy can only have so much restraint before he caves…

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

3 Stars!

Friends to lovers romance with a swoonworthy hero who can’t stop thinking about his female best friend/roommate.

Not my favorite of C. A. Harms’s books, but a pretty good read. Dawson is definitely swoony but man is he dumb. Reese isn’t too smart herself. Even though they harbor secret feelings/fantasies for the other, they continue to deny and see other people. I am not a fan of OW drama. Sometimes it works if it is written just right, but I didn’t work for in this book.

The writing is great as per usual. The characters are likable and the friends to lovers things is great. I just couldn’t get over all the denial.

It will work for some and not others.

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

New Release ~ 5 Stars for Respect by Jay Crownover

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jay Crownover, comes the next title in her The Breaking Point romantic suspense series, RESPECT. Don’t miss the amazing excerpt below, and order your copy today!

About RESPECT:

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn’t the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she’d given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind. She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn’t feel like surrender… but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It’s a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She’d much rather go out and build her own.

5 Stars!!!

I savored this book like a fine wine. This was one of my most highly anticipated reads of the year and longer. I have been dying for Booker and Karsen’s story since their characters were introduced. When I finally got my hands on it I devoured it slowly absorbing each and every word.

Crownover did not disappoint with Respect. She gave Booker the heart and soul he so deserved. Karsen was the kick butt heroine I knew she would be and more! Together, these two became everything I wanted them to be.

This series has been one of my all time favorites and I love that Crownover waited to write Booker and Karsen’s story because it was just fitting. She gave them the HEA they deserved.

The Point is an amazingly dark and intriguing world and Respect was my favorite of the series!

EXCERPT:

~Karsen~

I had no plans to leave the Point. It was ugly, mean, hard, and unforgiving, but these streets were home and I couldn’t imagine being happy anywhere else. This place had long since made my hands and the edges of my soul dirty. It was something I would be hard-pressed to hide should I go anywhere else. I’d have to spend my days trying to camouflage the filth I was so familiar with. Here, no one looked twice at the pretty teenager with shadows in her eyes and blood on her hands. I was one of many.

I wasn’t interested in leaving behind my sister or her fiancé, Race. We were an odd, dysfunctional family, but we made it work.

I didn’t want to be too far away from my mother, who was living in a group home as she slowly, painfully tried to recover from her alcoholism and PTSD from an accident she caused that ended up taking the life of a young mother and her child.

But more than anything, I absolutely didn’t want to leave him.

I couldn’t imagine a day going by without catching a glimpse of Noah Booker. I mean, he was impossible to miss. Six-and-a-half-feet tall, body built like a professional athlete, dark and brooding with the prettiest gunmetal-gray eyes, he was the entirety of every one of my teenage fantasies. I barely noticed the jagged scar dividing one side of his face. White and raised, it cut one of his black eyebrows in half, slashed over a high cheekbone, and ended somewhere under the chiseled edge of his hard jaw. He never talked about it, but Race, Booker’s boss, let it slip that Booker got the scar when he was locked up. Or maybe it wasn’t as much of a slip-up as a thinly veiled warning. Race never kept it much of a secret that my infatuation with his massive, dangerous, ex-con enforcer made him extremely uncomfortable. He’d warned me over and over again that Booker wasn’t for me. And he’d made it clear to the man who broke knees and smashed heads for a living that he was to stay as far away from me as possible.

They called it puppy love. It wasn’t.

To me, it was a vicious kind of love, filled with teeth and claws that I could feel digging at my insides every single time someone patted me on the head and told me how young I was, how much life I had yet to live. This love was rabid, and I was tired of having it on a leash. I wanted to let it free, wanted to let it sink its razor-sharp fangs into the man who had awoken the primal need inside of me. It was only fair he felt the same kind of crushing bite and painful pressure around his heart that I did every single day.

I was solely focused on getting to Booker. It barely registered I was done with high school and had new doors opening all around me. I couldn’t care less about getting my hands on my diploma. A piece of paper with Karsen Carter written on it in pretty calligraphy meant exactly nothing to me. The only thing I was focused on was the fact I was finally old enough to make my own choices. And I’d always picked Booker. Over and over again he was my number one priority.
