One rock brand, two brothers, three best friends.
Nobody Knows is the first book in the Razes hell series and can be read as a standalone.
I loved this story. Ellie has been best friends with the Brook brothers since she was a little girl. Next door neighbors who have been best friends for years. Ellie has supported the boys through their gigs in dive bars and even though she has her own career supports them even now as they rise to stardom.
Ellie was always closer to Jason when she was younger, they partied through their teenage years and fooled around but now an adult, Ellie has feelings for the older brother Drew. Secretly Ellie keeps her feelings to herself not wanting to spoil the relationship they have but little does she know, Drew feels the same way.
This isn't a love triangle, Ellie and Jason were never an item in their teens. Jason, Ellie and Drew are three friends who support each other, the brothers are close but they begin to discover being in the limelight isn't all that it's cracked up to be as Jason's past secrets are exposed.
As the pressure to stardom mounts and the media become more interested in the band the brothers become divided and poor Ellie is stuck in the middle.
There are insecurities, secrets, dramas, lies, Ellie and Drew finally reveal their own secrets to each other and as the story progresses I couldn't turn the page's fast enough.
Nobody Knows is a childhood friend's to lovers romance, each character has their ups and downs and it also deals with the issue of addiction but in the midst of it all contains a heartwarming romance that leads to a hea.
NOBODY KNOWS is an enjoyable friend's to lovers romance with a rock-star theme, I am definitely looking forward to the next book which is Drew's brother Jason's story.
Told in first person from Ellie and Drew's pov. Available in KU.
From the NYT Bestselling author of MISTER O, comes a hot and hilarious new standalone...
Here’s what you need to know about me—I’m well-off, well-hung and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh—and I don’t mean at the size of his d*ck. No, they want their funny with a side of huge… not to mention loyal. I’ve got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools.
Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits... Hey, I’m a good guy. Really. I do my best to stay far away from the kind of temptation she brings to work.
Until one night in Vegas… Yeah, you’ve heard this one before. Bad news on the business front, drowning our sorrows in a few too many Harvey Wallbangers, and then I’m banging her.
In my hotel room. In her hotel room. Behind the Titanic slot machine at the Flamingo (don’t ask). And before I can make her say “Oh God right there YES!” one more time, we’re both saying yes—the big yes—at a roadside chapel in front of a guy in press-on sideburns and a shiny gold leisure suit.
But it turns out what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. And now, my dick doesn’t stay in my pants when she’s around. I try to resist. Honest. But the more we try to keep our hands to ourselves, the more we end up naked again, and the more time I want to spend with her fully clothed, too.
The question now is…do I take this woman to be my ex-wife?
I really can't fault this series, despite it's cheesy Book titles these books in the Big Rock series really are my ideal kind of romance reads. A bit of swoon, a bit of sexy and a whole lot of hotness.
WELL HUNG is the third book in the Big Rock series and each book is interconnected so although you don't see much of the previous characters in for example this book each of the characters are linked in someway, this is Wyatt's story who is the twin brother of Nick Hammer from the book Mister O.
Wyatt is the owner of his own building and joinery business and Natalie is his organized assistant.
Wyatt is overprotective of his business, he's been stung before in relationships and his business suffered the backlash so when he starts to get feelings for Natalie he fights any desire he may have on making a move and wants to keep his relationship with Natalie strictly professional.
A big job prospect takes both Wyatt and Natalie on a trip to Vegas. Feelings are confessed and both of them agree to make their night in Vegas a night to remember for one night only.
Wyatt and Natalie both plan on making the most of their attraction to each other, and for just one night live the full Vegas experience from roller-coaster rides to sex behind a slot machine, they even get hitched with the agreement to get the marriage annulled the next day and then the plan is to go back to being just co-workers.
The problem is what happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas and things get complicated.
I loved it and the characters. The sex scenes are sizzling, I loved the banter and humor and the whole feel-good vibes you get throughout and especially when reaching the happy ending.
Looking forward to Wyatt's friend's book next, the hot sexy Doctor.
I am listening to this series in Audio, Sebastian York is just brilliant, I always enjoy his narration.

I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.
But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.
Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.
Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.
But first, I have to survive the kiss.
And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.
I have been loving this series, so despite my none-love of Author blogger romance's I had to give it a go.
Staci Hart is an author who weaves into her plots, humour, sweetness, swoon-worthy moments, a tipple of angst and spoonful's of sexy. Work in progress had all the above..
Like I said, Blogger and Author romance, I avoid them, too close to home, I like to escape in a book not identify with it, I am a blogger after all and although I've never had the hots for an author, bad boy characters maybe, you know what I mean *inserts winky emoji.
Hands up, I nearly gave in after a few chapters, the blogger/Author relationship and another of my none-loves Fantasy romance, I found hard to digest, the fantasy especially went way over my head but as the plot goes on I realise it was a necessity to create a background and understand the characters more, I know that, so I pushed through.
Once the bones of the story was set, all the talk of Thomas Bane's writing about fantasy, Amelia's blog and it started to get down to the Nitty gritty, I was hooked.
Amelia is sweet, she is one of four girls who lacks confidence, 4 best friends who made a pledge to put on red lipstick when they need to be brave, I love their friendships and I was looking forward to Amelia's story.
Thomas Bane AKA Tommy is a famous author, seen many times with high class models on his arm, he's one of those guys the tabloids love or wants to destroy, he's sort of in with the "in crowd" and for an author he's a big celeb who the public love, I was picturing JK Rowling sort of status with this sort of pull that he had.
Tommy and Amelia first meet at an event where he is signing books, Amelia has been the blogger who has always slated his books, you could say she is brutally honest, so when she states her name at his table waiting for her books to be signed Thomas Bane is immediately interested in his nemesis and has to see her again and even asks her to help him write his next book.
There are quite a few developments following their first meeting, twists and turns, a fake marriage to save Tommy's image, its all going on and I loved the development in Tommy and Melia's relationship, how Amelia started to come out of her shell, how Tommy supported her and grew to love her. Work In Progress is a sweet heartwarming romance.
"I knew the second the universe put you in my path that you would change everything, and you have"
I loved it, the characters were adorable and I finished yet again another book of Staci Hart's with a contented sigh.
"I will shake the heavens and mark the, with your name. Because without you, I am lost".
Looking forward to Katherine's story.
She smiled, unafraid, unabashed, just happily gazing at me as if it were the most natural thing. As if it weren’t fake.
I’d only just realized the truth of the matter.
I’d insisted on these daily walks because they were my favorite part of the day.
She thought it was pretend.
She didn’t know this was the only time when I didn’t have to pretend.
Here, I was free to touch her, to kiss her, to lay her down in the grass and make her laugh. Here, I didn’t have to wish. I didn’t have to long for her.
Here, I could have her.
Her hands were on my chest, then my jaw, her eyes darkening, smoldering. Because she knew I needed to kiss her just as well as I knew she wanted me to.
I’d never put a move on her when we were alone, never even brought it up. I hadn’t realized just how badly I wanted to, how desperately I missed moments like this when we were alone.
Could this be the moment he realizes it? she’d asked.
“I don’t know how he hasn’t realized it before,” I answered.
WORK IN PROGRESS

**ADD TO YOUR GOODREADS TBR**
I just couldn't put this book down, I was wondering what was going to come at me next?
Bound to break begins with Cassie finding Leo outside her home, battered and bruised. From there her stepmother comes to his rescue and not only offers him a job doing up their home but also a place to live on the grounds.
This isn't a "rescued boy" love story where the boy begins to find happiness after a run of bad luck where girl and boy then fall in love, far from it, and believe me Cassie's step mother is no saint either.
There's drama after drama in the lives of Cassie and Leo as they get to know each other and begin to feel more of the attraction pulling them together.
There's mystery behind Leo's appearance and what he is running from and as the story progresses confessions begin to come forth, not just from Leo but also from Cassie and her reasons for hating her step mother and why she is so skittish with boys.
I had problems with the flow of the plot,how things came into fruition or how things were confessed, I also felt the characters immaturity in some of their actions and words whereas in some scenes they acted like adults but the concept of the story I liked along with the twists and turns.
I didn't feel a connection to the characters, I felt the story jumped straight into the gritty stuff to soon without me getting to know them, personal preference, I like a slow build up but by the end I was invested in them and wanted it all to work out OK.
Bound to break is not a stand alone and there are lot's of twists and turns in the plot that has you eager to read more and there is definitely more drama and angst to come, things unsaid and even more confessions that need to be said and heard.
This is a story of two young people who have either suffered abuse or fear, each have their own demons of their own and after going it alone, fate steps in, they find each other and begin to face it together.
I am looking forward to seeing how everything works out for Cassie and Leo.

I’m good enough to protect her.
I’m good enough to die for her.
But, I’m not good enough to touch her?
I may be the Vice President of the Ravens Ruin MC, but her brother, the President, has given all of us orders that she’s off-limits.
It’s for the best, really.
The demons in my past love to play with a pretty little girl like her.
Luck of the Devil is the second book in the Raven's Ruin MC series, and this is Briar and Molly's story.
Luck of the Devil is a falling for the best friends sister kind of story, MC style.
There is a lot of mystery surrounding Briar, why he is celibate, if you have read the previous book this would make you curious as to why a man who is surrounded by the clubs debauchery and open sex antics is this way, has chosen to abstain from something that is offered to him daily on a plate by the club whores.
Slowly the story unravels his secrets through Briars thoughts. There has always been lots of questions surrounding Briar and his celibacy but no one dares questions and just accepts his ways.
Molly is the club princess and club members have orders from her brother who is the club president to look after her and not to touch. Briar has fought her advances and stayed true to his friends orders but Molly loves Briar and has known him since she was a little girl and is determined to get her man even if it means it could get him killed.
Luck of the Devil contains a lot of sex, club business, drama, it can be rude or crude and has a darker feel than some MC books, basically it's what an MC read should be.
The Ravens Ruin men are tough, rough, dangerous to whoever steps on their toes but they love their women, once they find the right one that is and show a softness only reserved for them.
Luck of the Devil finished with a cliffhanger leading towards T.J's story so I am looking forward to the next book also.

Book Two, Xavier Cold, is LIVE!!
“I could do things to your body that most women only dream about while reading their dirty romance novels, and I promise you’d fucking enjoy it.”
Wow, I was looking for a hot fighter romance and that's exactly what I got!
I loved Xavier and Anna, from the moment their eyes crossed on the plane I was all giddy.
"His eyes are the kind people write songs and poems about. They’re light blue and crystal clear. I’ve never seen someone with such intoxicating eyes"
Xavier is a famous Wrestler also known as Phenomenal X and Anna is the good girl in rebellion from her religious father who was trying to force her into an arranged marriage. Anna runs with the plan to start a new life with her aunt who isn't as strict or reserved as her father.
Xavier and Anna first meet on the plane, their eyes meet and of course, he is in first class but when the guy next to her spills his drink all over her and the stewardess takes her into first class to clean up, Xavier offers her a seat.
Phenomenal X is a friends to lovers romance. Xavier begins to feel more for Anna and loves her goodness vibes, they become friends with a promise of nothing more, Xavier claims he doesn't want to taint Anna, he's bad for her, Xavier is a man who sees no goodness in himself, the child of a heroin addict who once lived on the streets until a couple who own a cafe rescued him when they found him stealing food. Although Xavier tries to hold back from Anna his efforts are futile as the chemistry between them becomes tangible.
“Not everyone’s meant to have happiness, Anna. Some of us are meant for the dark.”
I loved the build-up and progression in Anna and X's relationship, Xavier becomes possessive and protective of Anna as she enters his world in the wrestling arena. The cliffhanger to this story has me on edge, it held so much suspense, I can't wait to see how this story goes.
Looking forward to reading the next book.
"I’m so fucking addicted. This will not end well for either of us, because I don't know how to let her go".
I didn’t want the legacy of leading my father’s MC.
I didn’t want to be him.
I didn’t want to feel soul-deep attraction to the girl my sister brought home from school.
But, we don’t always control our destinies, do we?
As the new President of the Ravens Ruin MC, I had a list of changes that needed to be made for the club.
The same woman in my bed night after night wasn’t on that list.
Yet, here I am, sheets tangled, skin smelling like hers, and a devious smile on my face.

The first book in the series.
I'm sort of doing this backward after reading Briar and Molly's story in LUCK OF THE DEVIL and I wanted to start at the beginning, Lynch who is Molly's brother had piqued my interest and I wanted to read how this feared man in the Ravens MC found love.
Zoe who gives herself the name Candy when she gets to the MC is just going along with Molly for the ride, she is interested in the MC and wants to bag herself a biker. Zoe isn't aware Molly her friend of 2 years is as connected as she is, she only knows she can get her in for the night but Molly is the club princess who went away to college and kept her home life a secret even from her friend.
One night turns into many when Lynch finds out the girls have been in trouble at college and the club pres makes both the girls stay for their safety and won't let them leave until he says they can leave.
Zoe finds herself in a threesome situation the first night there when she walks in on the club pres and another woman and he demands she joins in not knowing who she is which is his little sisters best friend.
These characters frustrated me, I'm under no illusions that biker men are hearts and flowers and time and time again Lynch proved that to Candy/Zoe. After having a taste of her he still got a taste of other flavors in the club too, women also known as club whores and Candy who I thought had a backbone at first just accepts it.
If you don't like cheating or men who show no respect to women this isn't a story for you.
Understanding the club life and how these men have been brought up in ways were pussy is pussy is how it is, but Lynch begins to battle with club ways in all areas, he wants to change how his father did things now he's in charge and as the plot progressed he also battles his feelings for Candy, yes, he goes about it the wrong way by trying to distract himself with other women but thankfully he does actually redeem himself at the end, in the eleventh hour maybe, but he does in the end.
Sins of the Father is hot, it's dirty, sexy and the characters are frustrating as hell. I couldn't tell you who frustrated me more Candy for taking Lynch' s man-whore ways or Lynch for thinking love is a sign of weaknesses and being a major Ass.
Overall I enjoyed it, I'm glad I read how Molly's best friend Zoe ended up being in the club and how Zoe and Lynch got together.
Each book can be read as a standalone and although I first read a book further on in the series there were no spoilers.
I would definitely read more in this series, these men need more than club whores in their lives and no doubt the pres has set a precedence for them to follow, well I'm hoping he has ;-)

He never wanted to be anyone’s hero…
Asher Knight is tall, dark, and wickedly handsome. He’s also irrevocably broken. Submerging himself in long hours at work by day and debauchery at The Wicked Horse by night, Asher uses work and play to numb the pain and guilt he feels over the death of his wife. What isn’t satisfied with one will surely be resolved by the other. At least that’s how he’s survived the last few years.
Hannah Madigan works three jobs just to make ends meet. Beat down by life, not to mention a cheating husband who was unfairly awarded custody of their daughter, Hannah is determined to make a better life for herself and get her kid back. But with pressures mounting and one costly mistake that leaves her owing Asher a huge debt, Hannah is as close as she’s ever come to throwing in the towel.
She’s given a golden opportunity…
Determined to stay the course by any means necessary, Hannah accepts an unusual proposal from Asher. He’ll give her a job. She’ll give him her body. Sounds easy, right? Until she realizes she needs his help more than she’s willing to admit. And he finds her adding to his life in ways he never wanted to accept.
This wicked knight may just learn that sometimes saving someone else means allowing yourself to be saved in return.
,3.5 Steamy stars.
I have to admit, as a reader, I'm done with books that contain sex clubs and BDSM, they don't really hold my interest as much anymore.
Wicked Knight jumps straight into the sex club realm when Asher takes a first glimpse of the new housekeeper and he is instantly attracted to her. When Hannah accidentally breaks an expensive vase, Asher offers her a way of paying for it by going to the Wicked Horse sex club with him.
Hannah agrees. I can't believe she did that so quickly, I know the woman was struggling for money but paying for a vase with sex? I had to roll my eyes, I did that A bit in the first few chapters.
All this is within the first chapter, the vase, the offer? and I thought wow, that was quick, no background on the characters, no build up to getting to know them, the story jumps straight to it?
Hannah is working 3 jobs and can't afford to pay for the vase so in her eyes she has no choice but to accept Asher's way of paying for the vase.
As the story progresses, this is when I began to enjoy it more, when it holds my interest more.
Asher and Hannah start to have more of a relationship other than just meeting at a sex club, she continues to clean in his home and be the housekeeper and eventually, they begin to have more sex in the "normal" way and not just at Wicked Horse.
What started off as a book that at first came across as all sex and no plot, turned out to be enjoyable and I began to warm up to the bossy businessman.
Asher was afraid to have "normal" relationship since his wife died, he was afraid and determined not to let anyone else in. Asher's way of ensuring he protected himself was by keeping his sex life professional which is why at first when he found he was attracted to Hannah the vase was an opportunity, he wanted her in an environment where he felt comfortable.
There's more to the plot than just sex, Hannah is battling for custody of her daughter and Asher proves he has a softer side to his icy exterior more than once.
Wicked Knight is a hot read, it took a few chapters to warm up to for me but I did enjoy it eventually.

When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . .
“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”--New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.
Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.
Kelly Jamieson’s USA Today bestselling Aces Hockey series can be read together or separately
Game On by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!
A good sports star/hockey romance.
I really enjoyed Game On, I was entertained from beginning to the swoon worthy hea
Cam is known as a playboy, he's never had a long term girlfriend and each one of his team mates have either just entered a relationship or settled down with kids, Cam claims he's happy living the single life until his team mates bet him he would fall in love with a woman if he gave it a chance and let a relationship last 2 month's until the playoffs.
Olivia is in the bar the night Cam takes the bet and with her gorgeous looks she easily becomes Cam's target.
I really liked Olivia, yes she was a gorgeous looking girl who looked the part of a wagg but there was a lot more to her, she was goofy and clumsy, kind-hearted, worked for a charity organisation that she started, Olivia's character is realistic.
There as no way Cam was not going to fall for this clumsy chick, it was written in the stars and I loved the journey to Cam's fall.
Game On is sizzling hot at times, has humor, great characters and is a must ead for hockey, sports-star romance fans.
Game On is the last book In the series but doesn't contain any spoilers regarding previous books.
My first book by Kelly Jamieson and I would definitely read more.

"You stole my heart when I was a boy, and you still own it now that I’m a man"
I did some swooning at the beginning of this book, two high school sweethearts, a nerdy girl and the star football player all the girls longed for but Jake only had eyes for Annie from the moment they bumped into each other in the corridor.
The swooning was short lived when Annie who is a brainiac is accepted into Harvard, the two of them agree to stay together in a long distance relationship but miscommunication and interfering parents caused them to eventually drift apart.
Jake was head over heels in love with Annie and her absence in his life caused him to spiral out of control and so he joined the military.
Over 10 years later the two are reunited when April is needing the help of the security firm Jake now works at.
After being pushed into a relationship by her parents by a guy of their choosing Annie after a few years finds herself in an abusive relationship and returns home for her safety along with her son.
Jake and Annie meet again when she has an appointment at the security firm to go over her case. The sparks and chemistry between the two of them are instant and it's as though they have never been apart.
"When I saw her again for the first time, back at the McIntyre Security building, it was like the years we’ve been apart just evaporated".
All the above was within the first few chapters and although I did love this book I wanted more of what I was loving about this book to be more drawn out. I began to get bored as the story went on, it was semantics. I felt Annie and Jake reunited too quickly and there was no build up or angst.
REDEEMED is a heartwarming story with swoon-worthy moments. A second chance love story. I would definitely read more in this series, I did enjoy the writing style of April and the equal balance of the drama, hotness and the romance in the plot.

Just call me Mister O. Because YOUR pleasure is my super power.
Making a woman feel ‘oh-god-that’s-good’ is the name of the game, and if a man can’t get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I’m talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time.
I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.
But then I'm thrown for a loop when a certain woman asks me to teach her everything about how to win a man. The only problem? She's my best friend's sister, but she's far too tempting to resist--especially when I learn that sweet, sexy Harper, has a dirty mind too and wants to put it to good use. What could possibly go wrong as I give the woman I've secretly wanted some no-strings-attached lessons in seduction?
No one will know, even if we send a few dirty sexts. Okay, a few hundred. Or if the zipper on her dress gets stuck. Not on that! Or if she gives me those f*&k-me-eyes on the train in front of her whole family.
The trouble is the more nights I spend with her in bed, the more days I want to spend with her out of bed. And for the first time ever, I'm not only thinking about how to make a woman cry out in pleasure --I'm thinking about how to keep her in my arms for a long time to come.
Looks like the real Adventures of Mister Orgasm have only just begun....
Mr. O is the perfect spin-off to Big Rock.
Nick hammer aka Mr Orgasm is the best friend of Spencer from the first book in this hot series.
I love these sexy, cocky and charming characters from Lauren Blakely. I read and listened to Mr O as part of a box set titled Bigger Rock which contains 4 books in the Big Rock series.
Following on from Big Rock, Spenser has gone on his honeymoon and his sister Harper and Nick begin to spend time with each other and get to know each other well, in fact, very well...
Mister O is highly entertaining, I laughed, swooned buckets and believe me I fanned myself many times with the hot sexy times between Harper and Nick.
Two great and lovable characters, no cheesiness in the plot, Mr O is a friends to lovers romance with a heartwarming hea. The book is well-written, the dialog is flawless.
A recommended and brilliant box set, one purchase 4 hot and sexy books also a recommended audio addition. Sebastian York is a fabulous narrator, he really transports across Nicks sexy, laid back demeanor and charming ways.
I am looking forward to moving onto the third book in this amazing box set going onto Well Hung and then Full package.

The Devil is the first book in the Devil's Playground duet
They'll tell you I seduced them. Used my looks and body to lure them into my playground.
They'll tell you I'm a sinner. A demon who held them captive with temptation and lust.
They'll tell you I'm evil. A monster obsessed with the both of them.
They'll tell you they made a deal with the devil.
What they won't tell you...is how much they liked it.

The Devil's Advocate, the final book in the two-book duet, is releasing soon. Book one must be read first.
I went into this blind and came out the other side with wide eye's.
I know Ashley Jade writes dark characters but damn....
This story is full of twists and turns, has the most complex characters and even though I have finished I'm none the wiser to this dark story with its web of lies, suspense, obsession, lust, and deceit.
The plot goes from present to past with three characters and contains some gritty scenes including mfm and m/m.
I'm not sure I want to go on but curiosity with how this twisted tale will unravel may just get the best of me.
This book is not a standalone.
The Devil is part of the cards of love series were different authors bring their own spin on a tarot card. This is my third book in this series of experiencing different authors and it's a great idea and series. Most books in the series are a standalone.

They say your first kiss should be earned.
Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.
They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.
Mine were broken before we left church.
They say your heart only beats for one man.
Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.
I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.
Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.
They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.
I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.
And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.
Captivated from beginning to end
This book gripped me, not only am I a lover of all things angst and suspense but throw in a Mafia feel to the whole plot and I'm basking I'm in another world, relishing in the plot and this was definitely a book I got lost in.
About the plot:
Francesca Rossi is a 19 year old Mafia princess who has grown into the ways and traditions of her family, she expected to marry a Made man. Her holidays and celebrations have been filled with people from her own world, she has fallen in love with one of her childhood friends, her first kiss is reserved for only him and she can't wait to one day marry her childhood sweetheart Angelo Bandini and tie as tradition expects to tie the Rossi and Bandini family together.
Francesca is a young woman who has been sheltered and has done what is expected of her until a huge plot twist for her life explodes into her plans re-writing her pages and the twist comes in the name of Senator Wolfe Keaton.
Wolfe, what can I say other than swoon, I loved that he was an older character, don't get me wrong I loved L.J Shen's previous books but the fact that Wolfe was maturer was a plus for me, he wasn't a boy taking orders or a boy who is just discovering this dark and cruel world he lived in, Wolfe had been there, experienced the cruelty committed by others and dealt with his own devastation and he was well on his way with his plans and his own personal mission of revenge.
Senator Wolfe is definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing to the public but behind the mask he is a man out for revenge using the power of his position to get what he wants and that is to break the man who took his family by taking something of his.
Wolfe uses blackmail and his position to convince the head of the Rossi family to give him the hand of his daughter. Wolfe has no interest in the Mafia princess other than hurting the enemy by taking the apple of his eye, his pride and joy, his only daughter.
"You're a collected debt, a retaliation, and, quite frankly, pretty decent arm candy."
The Kiss thief is a story of revenge and an enemies to lovers romance. The blurb suggests love triangle but it isn't, well, not in the cheating kind of way, Francesca has feelings for Angelo Bandini, in her eyes he is her chosen prince, a dream, her ideal man but that is all snatched away the night Wolfe takes her from her home with the blessing of her father and the promise of an imminent wedding to plan. A woman in love with a boy while battling with her feelings for a man.
Francesca finds herself not only living in the home of a man she doesn't know but also engaged to be married and then the fun begins, Francesca has backbone and won't surrender without a fight, I don't think Wolfe expected the petite princess to have such a sharp bite, I loved these parts of the story, the push and pull, the fights and then the surrender, two very stubborn characters.
I loved the development with these characters, the growth in their hate to love relationship, overall I loved everything about this book and could not put it down!
A gripping story with an emotional roller-coaster ride from beginning to end, brilliantly written, I want more.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea. Available in KU.

The first time I kissed Scarlet, I knew I was in trouble.
The night I slept with her, my life changed forever.

Now that I’ve been given a second chance I won’t be so reckless.
Will my love be enough to prove to her that even in the darkest times I won’t repeat the past?
Reckless Love is the last book in the Cowboys and Angels series
A Teen to Adult love story.
Reckless love is the last book in the Cowboy and Angel series.
Reckless love could be read as a stand alone, I read this without previous books but the author suggests at the beginning of this book that it can't be read a s a standalone?
I suppose it would contain spoilers if you are looking to start a series from the beginning, this book contains all of the characters together in few scenes and would spoil who is with whom with regards to relationships etc, so if you want to start the journey of getting to know the families and all the characters and experience the growth of the family, start from the beginning.
Kelly Elliott hasn't added any spoilers with previous stories though so you aren't given any information with what has gone down before but there are a few surprises with the other couples that those who have been following this series will love.
Reckless Love is Trevor and Scarlet's story.
Trevor is the player of the bunch with the the look of a bad boy, the hot cowboy with tattoos and a reputation with the ladies and although he has had his eye on Scarlet since before she moved away to school when he was a teen he still continued with his wild ways.
Trevor is afraid of commitment, his feelings for Scarlet scare him and when Scarlet returns home for good he finds himself in a situation where he wants her but in a way he doesn't and also he doesn't want anyone else to have her either. Trevor has a decision to make before he loses his forever girl, there is only so much rejection Scarlet can take and the clock is ticking.
This is a heartwarming story of major play boy turning into a swoon-worthy man, I loved the transformation in Trevor as he steps up to claim what is his and his responsibilities.
Fans of this series will love it, like I said all characters from previous books in the series are present and a few surprises are revealed.
I am looking forward to whatever Kelly Elliott has planned next. I have to say I do love anything by Kelly Elliott she writes a brilliant balance of hotness, romance, drama and heartwarming moments within her pages.

Audiobook – coming soon
From bestselling author Leddy Harper comes a sizzling romance about an aspiring young chef who may discover that the perfect recipe for love involves all accidental ingredients…
Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”
Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake—including her feelings for Jason.
With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there’s truth in their love?
"We were two damaged souls, incapable of a future because we each had a past with the wrong person."
Wow! swoon worthy ending. I loved The half Truth, great book to unwind with. No heavy angst or drama it was just the right kind of book to curl up with and enjoy the characters journey.
What I really love in a book are characters that I can relate to, read and feel like I'm taking part of their journey, laugh with them or at them, swoon at the romance, enjoy the story and finish with a happy sigh.
I definitely got all of that with this book.
I loved Tatum, she's goofy, funny, she's the type of woman who lifts her chin high sets out do do something brave and then basically it all goes tits up, she's a woman who isn't afraid to laugh at herself.
Jason has been away for a few years working in Vegas and following his stepfathers death wants to be with his family and return to his home town. Jason is also in a relationship or was until his girlfriend doesn't want to leave Vegas where she is a showgirl, not much call for that in a little town I suppose. Anyway Jason moves back home fresh from a break up.
Both Tatum and Jason are in the same circles, Tatum is the best friend of Jason's cousin Kelsey and already a part of the family.
With a past reputation of being a playboy Tatum and Jason have been given orders by Kelsey to say away from each other. Tatum is also getting over a break up.
I loved this slow burn romance, it was hot, funny, I loved the embarrassing moments and I also loved every one of the characters from Jason's mother to Kelsey, it had a great family feel to it, with lots of laugh out loud moments.
This is my first Leddy Harper book and definitely won't be my last, I loved the flow of the plot. The half truth contained everything I love in a romance read.
I am looking forward to reading more from Leddy Harper, I have some catching up to do and I am so spoilt for choice but hoping to dive into another of her books asap.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.

Santa is bringing kisses and so much more...
I never intended to be Santa again this year, but when a letter comes in, asking me to give my old crush Celine a Christmas gift she’ll never forget, I jump at the chance.
Celine has had a rough year, so I’ll take the woman out on the town and remind her that it’s the season for miracles.
It was supposed to be a fun night out, nothing more, but the moment I see her, I know she’s more than a present under the tree, she’s a dream come true. And she’s all I want this Christmas and beyond. It’s time to convince her to take a seat on Santa’s lap and find out if she’s been naughty or nice.
If she doesn’t see the gift that she is, I’ll show her just how I intend to unwrap her...

Another sweet and hot little Christmas themed romance.
I really liked Santa's blind date.
Celine, you could say hasn't had the best of luck, she married her first boyfriend, got cancer and the douche ended the marriage because it wasn't what he signed up for.
Celine is miserable, her Cancer has gone but she has lost all faith in trust and love.
Blake is an ex boxer, he's rich, handsome and a playboy, well a playboy until he receives a Dear Santa letter from someone asking for a Christmas wish for her sister.
Blake is Santa every year in his old town that he grew up in and likes to give something back to the community, something his father did before him.
Blake had always had a crush on Celine and jumps at the chance to giver her a Christmas wish..
Santa's Blind date is short and sweet, has a whole lot of hotness and although short leaves you feeling fulfilled.
I have read quite a few of these short Christmas romances from this series and highly recommend them. I have been able to sample all the authors writing and have already compiled a list of books I want to read from these short romances.
I saw it all…from his Yule log to his jingle balls. At a holiday party, I bumped into my naked sworn enemy.
Everyone in my town knows Ronan as the dashing football star. I get it. He’s hot. And he can throw a ball. Big deal.
He’s been my nightmare since I was nine. Now he’s a six-foot, drop-dead gorgeous version of the menace who terrorized me.
So naturally, he’s my companion to every-single-freaking Christmas event this year. I’m Mrs. Claus in the annual parade. Mason is Santa.
Our nonstop banter should drive me insane. His cocky attitude should be a huge turn-off. But if there’s one man who can pull off seductive in a Santa suit—it’s Ronan.
Let's just say, stockings aren’t the only thing hung at his house.
If I can make it through the week without kissing him, it’ll be a Christmas miracle.

Jingle Balls is a brilliant enemies to lovers holiday romance.
I have read a few holiday romances recently to get me in the Christmas spirit and this is the best I have read, a good enemies to lovers romance mixed with a Christmas theme.
I love an enemies to lovers romance and this was so much fun.
Ronan and Gigi have grown up together they are arch enemies. Basically Ronan made Gigi's life a misery growing up with his side kick friends and his brother, they even egged her prom date when he came to pick her up, you name it he did it.
"You egged my prom date. Remember that? Because of you, I spent the whole night crying on my couch."
"It was a coincidence. I didn’t know he was your date."
"Whatever. You were in every horrible incident of my childhood."
But don't they say there's a fine line between love and hate?
Now older, now maturer, well sort of, Ronan who is an NFL player and Gigi who is still studying, fresh from a break up with her fiance are visiting home for Christmas. Ronan and Gigi are pushed together to be Mr & Mrs Christmas for charity causes.
I laughed out loud at some of the scenes, Ronan sneaking into her house putting little dicks all over her Christmas tree, Ronan's innuendos, the banter and the squabbles and loved the build up to both of them realising that maybe they were meant to be together all along.
Jingle balls is funny, sweet, hot and leads to a heartwarming hea. Recommended holiday read.

1 Hot Cop + 1 Bad Girl = 1 sexy enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract STAND-ALONE romance from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.
You're too law-abiding for me.
What makes you say that?
That uniform. Those handcuffs.
Maybe I should put you in handcuffs.
Maybe I'd like to see you try..."
He's a hot cop with a square jaw, a sexy grin, and a tight end.
I'm a bad girl, a "Jezebel"--just ask all the old biddies in town.
We're oil and vinegar. We don't mix.
But when we kiss...
She's got flashing green eyes, red-velvet lips, and luscious curves in all the right places.
She's a bad girl all right, and after what I've lost, I'm not looking for trouble.
But when we kiss...
Oil and vinegar DO mix,
And when they do, it's electric.
A full-length, STAND-ALONE, opposites-attract romance about heroes, bad girls, and what happens when you stop fighting and surrender to love. NO Cheating; NO Cliffhangers!
A BAD GIRL AND HOT COP ROMANCE.
I liked it!
Tabatha Green was the girl in town with a reputation, she was the preacher's Niece, her mother left when she was 3 and she didn't know who her father was. Tabby is the kind of girl that wouldn't stick out in any other town but in her little town full of churchgoers and people who knew everyone's business she was wild in the eyes of the small-minded town folk.
Chad Tucker is ex-military and now the towns deputy. Chad comes from another kind of society and left that world when his sister died, he has his own backstory that proves money and wealthy doesn't buy happiness.
Chad and Tabatha first meet when she is discovered skinny dipping on someone's premises by the Town sheriff and Chad and now more than a year on Chad still can't get Tabby off his mind.
I loved the chase in this romance, Tabby is a woman with backbone and isn't one for giving in easily but Chad is determined to make her his, despite what the town folk may think.
"Chad Tucker is some kind of sex god with a magic snake in his pants. Andy the Anaconda. I seriously can’t believe the way he gets me off every time. It’s throwing a wrench in my plan to keep it casual".
A good heartwarming romance with swoon-worthy and sizzling hot moments, Chad is one bossy, sweet talking and dirty mouthed officer.
I would read more in this series and I am already interested in what will go down with Emberly once her ex comes riding back into town, the little sneak peek sounded so exciting. I loved Emberly she was sassy and full of humor and a good side character in WHEN WE KISS.
When I stumbled into a mafia run club seeking a job, I was looking for protection. Little did I know I’d need protection from him.
Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended.
He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.
So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve learned to do what’s necessary to survive in this world, and I guess that includes marrying a mobster. Regardless of what he might say, it’s only temporary.
It’s not like I’m going to sleep with him. Or fall for him.
Because that would be stupid, right?
CONOR is LIVE . Grab your copy here! <3
I'm a huge fan of The Boston Underworld series and like all previous books before this, I absolutely loved Conor too.
Another hot, swoon-worthy Mafia Fbbf on my bookshelf.
Conor is an unexpected love story and the progression in Conor and Ivy's road to love is heartwarming.
Ivy is on the run from a gang and thinks where better to hide out than under the roof of the Mafia, in their club? Ivy thinks this is the last place the gang members will look for her.
Crow spots Ivy coming into the club each night, knows the gang is after her and assigns Conor to keep an eye on her, get information and if he has too kill her.
Conor is a hard guy, mafia through and through, with his own heartbreaking backstory that has made him the man he is and he's a dedicated family member of the Mafia and loyal to Crow BUT there's an instant connection with Ivy and Conor begins to battle with his orders as he gets to know Ivy more.
I devoured this book, A. Zavarelli hits all the right spots for me with her story's, her writing and her characters, if I had to do a list of what I like in a Mafia romance, I would say THIS!! In fact all of this series.
Conor will touch your heart, make you swoon, he's still the bad boy that comes home with blood on his shirt but when Ivy enters his life there's a change in him, a new purpose, I loved it!
Great plot, the hotness was smokin and in all the right places and I adored the hea.
Looking forward to more in this series.
Welcome to Crimson Elite, the most exclusive sex club in the world.
Enter at your own risk, and always remember our number one rule--
You must never speak of Crimson Elite—the punishment is severe.
Creed ‘Too Hot For Words’ Christopher
If God created the perfect man he would closely resemble Creed, on the outside that is.
He’s as cavalier as they come. Unconcerned. Cold. Dismissive. I wonder if he has any feelings at all.
And when his lips touch mine, everything goes black. He takes me into his world, and it’s the most magical thing I’ve ever experienced.
And I’m sucked in time and time again.
Like a moth to the flame, I am ready to be set alight.
Elicea ‘F*cks With My Head’ Beckham
Elicea is a firecracker. She has piqued my interest, and no one piques my interest anymore.
Beautiful women are what I do—it’s my work.
Not one of them has managed to get their claws into me the way she does. It’s as if she’s seeing my ice heart and trying to melt it set it alight with each touch of her sinful lips.
But that can’t work, it won’t work.
Not in my world.
What an intriguing and exciting start to a new series from T.L Smith.
Welcome to Crimson Elite, the most exclusive sex club in the world.
Not my favorite topic in a book, lets face it there are a lot of sex club books out there, but the similarity stops right there in the words SEX CLUB, this was nothing like I thought it was going to be, yes there's a sex club but this is nothing like I have read before and the plot focuses more on the characters than the activity in the club.
Creed is one of the owners of this secret sex club, I think its the only sex club I have come across where once you reveal its secret you die, basically, once your out, You. Are. Out.
The men who own this sex club are a mixture of brothers with a strong bond, ruthless business men, mysterious and intriguing.Oh and then there's Ma, the woman who looks after all these boys, which is Creeds mother, so they definitely all have a softer side.
Creed is the strong silent type, he's a mystery, in fact even though I have finished the book and he's still a mystery.
Elicea witnesses a murder at the very beginning of the book in an alleyway while walking home but then all traces are gone, following this Creed and Elicia first meet when the men known as the Elite come into the bar where she works and she is given orders to look after these high paying customers.
Elicea isn't the type of woman who is a pushover and after one grope too many from another customer slams her tray on his hands resulting in her getting fired.
From first seeing Elicea Creed is drawn to her and follows her to offer her a job at his club behind the bar.
This is definitely not a hearts and flowers romance, Creed is the type of guy who lacks emotions or feelings, he's the one who gets his hands bloody out of the guys and as a relationship develops between Elicea and Creed that doesn't change but in his own way he cares, you see subtle changes in him but Elicea accepts him as he is. The chemistry between them was sizzling.
At one point I thought a cat fight may develop between Elicea and one of the woman who looks after all the girls in the club who has noticed Creed watching Elicea, something he never does with women which makes him even more appealing to the girls, like he is the one they want to crack and you can see spite and jealousy there from this woman but nothing comes of that, I was a bit disappointed to be honest, I love a bit of angst.
Creed is a hard character so sum up, he is still a mystery to me, as are the other guys.
T.L Smith has definitely given me longings for the next book, I can't wait to see how these Elite men go forward with their secret dealings, friendships and finding love they claim they don't want or need.
I need more of Elicea and Creed too, I want to know how it all develops in their relationship, these guys are like family so no doubt I will see more of them in books to come.
An exciting new romantic suspense series from T.L Smith. Told In dual pov. Leads to HFN.
