When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.
I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.
Totally addictive, I could not put this book down!!
From the very beginning of this book I was hooked.
Allie's introduction to the story really pulls on the heart, the very beginning is the night Allie lost her dad, then goes onto her moving to college, to a new town.
Allie is a loner, she's an old soul in a young body, her dad who was a musician was like her best friend and my heart completely felt for her, I immediately liked Allie and only wanted good things for her as the story progressed.
Then we meet Jess, first impressions, a playboy, man-whore, but I was also intrigued by this hot guy girls fawned over, the guy with a cocky attitude, the star Lacrosse player with a sadness in his eyes.
This is a story of young love, falling for the wrong guy who turns out to be just right.
I haven't read the other books in this series but I am definitely going to now. Bad influence doesn't give away anything that may have happened in any book previously it was all Allie and Jess and I was completely immersed in this story, the secrets Jess tried to keep to himself, the twists and turns, the attraction that Allie and Jess had, the push and pull.
Bad Influence is a great young adult read, hot in all the right places with an addictive plot and leads to a hea.

From USA Today's Bestselling Author, Terri E. Laine, comes a new standalone, fun and sexy contemporary romance.
My relationship with Cameron McCabe is complicated.
The NFL’s leading quarterback is the cute boy I grew up next door too. The cocky jerk—correction—hotter-than-sin jerk, can still charm the panties off any woman he wants with just a blink of his gorgeous green eyes.
He’s also my best friend’s older brother and totally off-limits. Or he’s supposed to be.
As my best friend’s wedding photos are finally finished and my bridesmaid’s duties over, the last thing I want to do is watch Cameron, #1 player in every sense of the word, flirt with all the single females at the wedding except me.
What do I do?
Try three, maybe four, okay, I lost count of the number of tequila shots I consumed.
So, it shouldn’t at all be a surprise when I wake up naked in a hotel room that’s not mine.
As alarming as that is, it doesn’t compare to finding myself handcuffed in bed to mister sexy pants himself.
Mature as I am, I chuck it off as a one-time mistake.
It is Vegas and you know what they say.
What happens here, stays here.
Or so I think.
Apparently, dirty talking Cameron McCabe isn’t done with me yet and I may not be done with him either.
Just this one weekend… or at least that’s what I tell myself.
Warning: This quick and dirty read will give you all the feels. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
Brilliant, I absolutely loved this book and listened to it in audio. The narration was fantastic and really brought the characters to life.
I was completely engrossed, I do love a falling for your best friends brother kind of romance, its all kinds of forbidden and sexy and what a twist were the best friend is actually a guy which is Eddie in this story.
Chris and Eddie had always had a pact growing up that Eddie would never touch her sister and Chris would never touch his brother, but rules it seems were inevitably broken.
Following Eddie's wedding Chris has sex with Eddie's brother, yep, the forbidden one. There's a lot of push and pull following this, Chris is so stubborn, but damn, Cameron is so swoon-worthy, how could she not break her rules.
I adored both characters, I laughed, swooned,the story was hot in all the right places, it was a perfectly balanced short read with a beautiful hea.
With little hints into Chris's sisters story I cannot wait to dive into this book too and would definitely listen to more in audio.
If you are a fan of audiobook, don’t miss these amazing stories!

This is a stand-alone, friends to lovers, contemporary romance. This series is a spin off of The West Brothers Novels. It is a complete stand alone from that series.
One Indecent Night (A West Sisters Novel)
The day I saw Sylvie West standing next to the bride,
something moved in me I was certain had died.
I’d known her since she was a pain-in-the-rear kid, but she was my best friend’s cousin, and off limits.
He also told me he’d strangle me if I ever laid a hand on her.
When she downed tequila like water at the reception, and then danced on the table, all bets were off.
She was my kind of woman, and forbidden or not, I was going to make her mine.
Only when morning broke, I woke up to a different Sylvie—one who didn’t remember a single thing about the passion-filled night we’d shared.
Now, I had to prove I was the one who was meant for her.
After she put up one obstacle after another, the time had come to pull every trick out of my hat.
And Sylvie had no idea I was one tricky bastard.
But the last thing I expected was for her to turn the tables and play the last trick on me
This for me was one of those books were the blurb was actually better than the book.
I went into One Indecent night thinking it would be fun, sexy, hot, but following the beginning were Sylvie woke up after her cousins wedding and a night of drunken sex with Evan, her cousins best friend I found it boring, too descriptive, words and sentences that were just page fillers and of no interest to me at all.
The characters; I think I went off Evan immediately when Sylvie woke up the next morning and he kept calling her sweets, to me that's not hot and sexy that's just sweet. Basically this wasn't what I was expecting at all and it was so, so long. Sylvia was ok, in all honesty they were both boring characters, I had a few giggles here and there but for a book with over 50 chapters I can't really say any of it stuck other than the beginning and death in the family.

The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.
My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.
Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.
Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.
I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.
So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.
The Arizona Vengeance series from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett can be read together or separately:
Book 4 in the Arizona Vengeance series, asking me to pick my favorite so far would be like asking me to pick my favorite chocolate bar , I just couldn't choose, each are delicious in their own way. But Dax was so swoon-worthy, I loved this story.
Falling for your best friends little sister.
Dax is a star player for the Arizona team and goes to visit his recently deceased best friends sister while in town for a game, Dax discovers that Regan has a serious illness and now that her brother has died she is struggling, her brother's medical insurance used to pay for her bills.
Regan Miles is no longer the teenager Dax remembers and he is instantly attracted to her but also his brotherly instincts he always had for her kicks in and he persuades her to marry him and move in with him so her insurance and treatment is covered. No spoilers there it's all in the blurb for this book but the journey from bother/sisterly love, the chemistry between them both and the journey to love is heartwarming and a story that must be read.
Lovable characters, hot in all the right places, a compelling plot making this another brilliant book in this addictive series.
I am looking forward to more, there are hints along the way to what is going on in the lives in the other players, some already have their own books so it's great hearing from previous characters and some such as Tacker struggling with his grief and Dax's sister are yet to be told and both these books that are coming next have me excited and looking forward to reading them.
If you love hockey or sports romance then this is a must read series.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.

CHARLIE DOESN'T PLAY BY THE RULES...
She likes sleeping with men.
Sometimes it's not a choice.
Life hasn't been easy for Charlie. Her mother was a monster. And when Charlie left home, there wasn't always a warm bed, food, or a hot shower.
She figured out how to get by on her looks.
When her mother dies and she comes home to put that part of her life behind her, she finds the diary.
It fills her with rage.
She's out for revenge.
But along the way she meets him.
Ethan DOES play by the rules. And at the top of his list is "Don't get involved with clients."
Will he break his rules for Charlie?
**Stone Rules can be read as a standalone contemporary romance novel. It is the 1st book in the Stone Brothers series.
**Note to reader - this book contains sensitive material and is suggested for those over 18.
Stone Rules is the second Samantha Christy read for me and honestly now I've finished this I just want to gobble up all the rest in the series and more. I will definitely be reading more of Samantha Christy's work.
I loved Stone Rules. This book was full of twist and turns and so damn hot!.
Stone Rules was like a book of two halves, the push and pull, Ethan trying to remain professional as he investigates something for Charlie, she's persistent but keeps getting knock backs but later in the plot it's like Ethan has a Hallelujah moment and the transformation in Ethan when he finally gives in to the feelings he has for Charlie is so swoon worthy.
Both have a heartbreaking or hurtful past, both have healing they still need to go through and you could say Charlie and Ethan help each other face that healing together, its a book about timing, finding the right person at the right time, forgetting the past and entering a new relationship that leads to forever love.
A great book filled with everything I love in a contemporary romance, angst, hotness, a good plot, characters that grow on you and have you rooting for them and a hea for two people who deserved to find it.
I listened to this in audio and it was brilliantly narrated.
“I’m not sure I like the fact that millions of other men have seen you naked.”
It’s hard not to find his jealousy endearing. “I wasn’t naked. I wore a G-string. Plus, it’s a European publication. I hardly think millions of men have seen it. It’s not like I posed for Playboy or anything.”
“My goddamn brother saw it,” he pouts.
“So what?” I ask. “I’m not your girlfriend, Ethan. You have no right to an opinion on those kinds of matters.”
His hard stare burns down on me. “I still don’t like it, Charlie.”
“Then don’t ever look at it,” I say.
“Right.” He laughs. “Kind of like telling a kid not to eat the cookie in the cookie jar. If he didn’t know the cookie was in the jar, he wouldn’t ever want it. And now that you’ve told him it’s there, but that he can’t eat it, it’s all he can think about.”
“So in this scenario, you’re the kid and I’m the cookie?” I ask, amused.
He smirks at me.
“Nobody is saying you can’t eat the cookie, Ethan. Eat the fucking cookie. I’m handing it to you on a platter.”
“Are we still talking about the photo spread?” he asks.

The Trouble With You
The Game You Play (coming soon)
The Harder You Fall (coming soon)
I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!
What a brilliant start to a new series and so addictive.
L.A Cotton hit everything I yearn for in my reads. Drama, angst, hotness, a gripping plot, this mature young adult romance had it all.
The Trouble With You is a few things, a high school romance, enemies to lovers, brothers best friend romance, a coming of age, YA, sports/soccer romance, bully romance and it hit all my good spots.
What started off as a bully romance took a quick turn to being so much more.
"I'd spent six years hating him. For being Jason's side kick. For standing by, even helping, my step-brother make my life hell"
Hailee hated her step brother, for six years she had lived with him, endured his taunts and his games but she gave as good as she got but on the first day of her last school year something began to change not with her step-brother he was as bad as ever, the star quarterback who thought he was a god but it was his best friend, the start if the new school year also brought a change in Cameron.
"I never wanted to break you" I confessed "I only wanted you to see me"
Cameron and Hailee began to feel the chemistry to a point were it could no longer be denied, a slow burn but the heat was sizzling to the point of boiling over.
I really liked the characters, Hailee was ballsy, had backbone and while Cameron was also a star soccer player with a cocky attitude he had a softness to him that was reserved for Hailee and those he loved.
I loved the journey, the ups and downs. The flow was perfect and I couldn't get enough.
This book has me very excited for this series and I can't wait for more.

Babylon is burning.
Loyalty is dying.
Trust has been extinguished.
Too many enemies are waiting at every turn, wanting the blood of The Hounds of Babylon MC and everyone they’ve ever loved. With nowhere left to run, Drew Tucker finally understands that the only way out of the war is to go through it.
Despite wanting to protect Ayda Hanagan with everything he has, Drew also knows that she, of all people, belongs by his side.

now wants to destroy.
It all comes down to this.
To their passion.
To their ability to survive.
To their need to fight for a peaceful forever.
And their desire to hold onto the kind of love no amount of blood, tears, or death could ever break apart
,AN MC LOVE STORY LIKE NO OTHER
Drew Tucker, Damn, just that name gives me tingles, from the very first book when we met Drew Tucker with his pent up anger, his bad ass ways and the cocky smirk you will either want to punch or kiss, this Bad boy MC president really grew on my heart. A typical Bad boy who turned good through the love of a good woman and what a story, what a journey it has been.
If there's one club that can endure the heartbreak and hardship this club has suffered in it's life time and come out the other side smiling it has to be The Hounds Of Babylon MC with it's President Drew Tucker and his old Lady Ayda.
THIS IS THE LAST STAND AND BOY DID THEY STAND.
Twists and turns, enemies, rivals, danger, death, grief, betrayal, worry, Drew tucker and his men have been through it all and in the midst of of this, a love story that will leave you breathless.
The last fight, the survival of the fittest, and proof that love conquers all.
"No more goodbyes" I whispered to myself "Only good mornings"
This book cannot be read as a standalone and must be read in order. A brilliant collaboration with these two authors who have all the words. Looking forward to whatever Victoria L James or L.J Stock brings next.

Love had cut me in so many ways I wondered if my heart could take any more.
But then I saw him.
He was my boss.
A single father.
And to top it off he was insolent.
I didn’t intend to want him, that wasn’t my objective. But somehow I couldn’t say no.
We shouldn’t have worked, but like witchcraft, I was under his spell.
My heart’s been destroyed before, I’m not sure it can handle heartbreak again.
5 STARS OVERALL FOR THIS BRILLIANT SERIES BY T.L SMITH
𝐌𝐈𝐋𝐋𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐀𝐈𝐑𝐄. DARBY'S STORY IS A MUST READ.
This series isn't what I expected at all, as soon as I learned the 4 guys owned an Elite sex club I had thoughts of BDSM and maybe similar story lines to some books I may have read before BUT that wasn't the case at all. Although the Crimson Elite own a sex club all the focus is on each character, their backstory and the women who come into their lives with only parts of what is going on with the business, each of the Elite has their own love story to tell, some darker than others.
4 Dark secretive men who each find their own love story. Darby is the last one to fall and I loved his story.
Darby was always the workaholic, the dark brooding alpha moody male and the guys tolerated his moods that's who Darby is and these 4 guys are like brothers, they are brothers just not related.
You get hints that something is happening with Darby in the previous book and that really left me curious, I just didn't expect it to be as moving a story as it was.
Darby discovers he has been tricked, conned into getting someone pregnant, at first he thinks she is after his money but there is so much more to this story and it's heartbreaking.
Darby unexpectedly becomes a single dad while also trying to balance running a business, but he copes and absolutely adores and is very protective over his son.
Olympia, what can I say about Olympia, she's new on the scene when she steps in as a temporary bar manager at the club, she has backbone, she's sassy and can take everything Darby throws at her and she even throws her own verbal punches back.
Olympia has her own sad backstory and as the plot develops later you see the whole picture and find out who Olympia really is, which is a woman who doesn't need to work but works to keep herself busy and around people, a woman afraid of the dark and a woman who has wrestled with grief for two years.
Darby instantly dislikes Olympia instantly with her blue hair and sassy mouth but also there is immediate chemistry between them which begins to sizzle especially when Olympia gives as good as she gets with her bossy and rude boss and then it goes to boiling.
Darby starts to wrestle with himself, he can't resist Olympia but there is a lot of push and pull before Darby finally gives and the fireworks go off when these two finally get down to business and it's hot!.
What a heartwarming, heartbreaking and hot romance, INSOLENT was so many things and everything I love in a contemporary read. Insolent isn't a dark read or a read filled with suspense this is a love story about two people who finally find what they need at the right time and that's each other.
I loved this series and each book was different to the one before, I loved it more and more as it progressed and I couldn't wait to get to the last book but also didn't want it to end.
One negative would be that I felt something missing, I felt it needed something that pulled all the four books together, a longer epilogue or something, all the guys years on down the line, I had question if the Elite club progressed or continued? or questioning that now the guys are all finally with the women they love and there are children on the scene did they move onto something else?, I'm not sure what that final something should be but I just felt that final piece was missing.
Darby's book could be read as a standalone, the other guys are in some of the scenes but you don't really need to know their story's to understand anything in Darby and Olympia's story but I would recommend reading this series from the beginning.

GREED (The Elite Seven Series #7)
My greed is insatiable.
I’m a slave to the need. The drive for more. For everything.
Once I decide I want something, the greed for it consumes me.
I want answers.
I want justice.
I want vengeance.
I want HER.
My best friend and his sister—the girl I vowed could trust in me and whom I would always protect—dropped off the map two years ago. My own father pledged assurances that they'd been living a life they deserved.
Lies. Lies. Lies.
Hell hath no fury like a man who has no fucks to give and a mission to fulfill his promise.
I may be a greedy sonofabitch, but I’m also a loyal one. Cross me or my brothers, and I’ll come for your throat. And my teeth are razor sharp.
When I discover the corruption running deep within my own bloodline, I take a stand to right the wrongs. I had no idea their darkness would lead me to the light—to her.
The Lust I have for her will keep me grounded.
The Wrath for those who betrayed us will ignite the fight inside me.
And the Greed for victory will consume our enemies in a tidal wave of Hell’s fury.
They say the three gates of Hell are Lust, Wrath, and Greed.
Well, open up, motherfuckers…Daddy’s home.
I am Micah Dixon.
I am Greed.

I am Micah Dixon.
I am Greed.
The last of the Elite Seven and what a dark, dangerous and exhilarating journey it has been.
All comes to and end in this book so I am giving my rating for all of these books as a collective and I cannot praise the authors enough for coming together and creating such a dark and thrilling series.
Each one of us were affected by the Elite. They pulled our strings and screwed with us.
When they chose us, they chose poorly, because they thought we could be pulled by strings. How fucking wrong they were.
7 boys chosen to be the Elite, this is Micah's story. There are twists and turns, revelations and like all the previous books before it, Micah finds love along the way.
I thought I was greedy by nature, nothing was ever enough or satisfied me. It wasn't greed, though. I never settled because I hadn't found perfection yet and now she was in my arms.
No spoilers, if you love a dark journey, angst, suspense and the feeling of being completely in the dark as the story progresses, not knowing what on earth will happen next, then one click!

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a new story in her Knight Brothers series…
She used to be his. Now she’s about to marry another man.
Will he let her go … or will he stand up and take the bride?
Ryder Hammond and Sierra Knight were high school sweethearts. Despite him being her brother's best friend, their relationship burned hot and fast…and ended with heartbreak and regrets.
Years later, she’s at the altar, about to marry another man.
He’s only there for closure, to finally put the past behind him.
But when the preacher asks if anyone has a reason the couple shouldn’t wed, she turns around and her gaze locks on his.
Suddenly he’s out of his seat.
And ultimately stealing the very pissed off bride and taking her to a secluded cabin.
He wants one week to convince her they’re meant to be, to remind her of the fiery passion still burning between them.
When their time together is up, will she walk away and break his heart this time, or will he finally have the woman he's wanted all along?
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
A second chance romance.
A Hot and short Novella.
There isn't much to elaborate on, the blurb says it all really, all that's missing are the bits in between which I did find heartwarming also the characters had chemistry, another plus.
As the blurb states the bride is whisked away to a remote holiday resort for newly married couples, a resort they used to dream about when they were young lovers plotting their future, this was before they parted ways. Sierra didn't kick up much of a fight when she was taken from the church by Ryder, he was her Teenage first love and she was devastated when their relationship ended a few years ago before she went off to college.
Ryder had his reasons for letting Sierra go years before but she is still his in his heart and mind and he wasn't going to let her marry another man.
A story of timing, second chances and forever love.
There are a whole lot of books in the 1001 Dark nights series, each book written by a different author, its a great way of trying out new to you authors. Each book is a standalone.
Dark nights is a novella and is told in third person. My first book by this author, I would possibly read more but I do prefer first person pov.

She calls it a devil’s bargain. I call it a deal she can’t refuse.
I was owed a debt and I expected payment.
One night in my bed. My rules. The debt cleared, and she could walk away.
There are worse things. And besides, debtors can’t be choosers.
The night started as it should. She obeyed as she should.
But then something happened. Something I was wholly unprepared for. And what I saw changed everything.
I broke my own rules after that. And I didn’t keep my end of the bargain.
Because walking away was no longer an option I would grant her, no matter the cost.

Thrilling and exciting, I love it when the bad guys does a complete one eighty and becomes a swoon-worthy hero.
𝑰𝒕'𝒔 𝒂 𝑫𝒆𝒗𝒊𝒍'𝒔 𝑩𝒂𝒓𝒈𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝒔𝒉𝒆 𝒄𝒂𝒏'𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒇𝒖𝒔𝒆...
A story of a hard business man and a humble young woman, an completely unexpected romance.
Melissa is a good natured person, she works for a charity and keeps herself to herself, she has very limited friends. When Melissa returns home one night to find men in her apartment, she is taken to Hawk, a business man and is then given a proposition she wasn't' going to refuse.
Despite her childhood past of abuse while in care and being let down by her foster sister who didn't help her at the time before she ran, Melissa being the person she is, not wanting to see anyone hurt, accepts the offer to pay off her foster sister's gambling debts to keep her safe.
Melissa agrees to be auctioned off to the highest bidder for one night to whoever has the highest bid. Although Hawk is the one putting her up for sale, something about Melissa draws him to her and he places his own bid.
Hawk is a ruthless business man, not only does he auction off willing women for nights of sex with high rollers, he is also the owner of a casino, his character is dark, brooding and sexy.
"𝐈 𝐝𝐨𝐧'𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝. 𝐀 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐧 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐇𝐚𝐰𝐤 𝐌𝐚𝐜𝐋𝐞𝐨𝐝 𝐫𝐮𝐥𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐫".
What I didn't expect is Hawk also having a Scottish heritage and further along in the story following the death of his father has to return home, he is the head of the clan the Leard and has a heritage to fulfil, there's a lot more to Hawk you will discover as the plot progresses.
What should have been one night turns into more and although Hawk isn't a kind or endearing man at first, Melissa has bigger demons to face when it seams her past has finally found her despite her changing her name and going into hiding, so Hawk at first was the lesser of two evils.
What begins as a dark read that holds back no punches completely transforms into a beautiful love story.
I enjoyed it, didn't' want to put it down, a story with a dark beginning that blossoms into a heartwarming ending.
