Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.
After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.
An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.
Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.
I LOVE THE COVER,I LIKE THE STORY!
My first book by Kylie Scott since The Stage Dive series, a series I loved but I also like hot rock-star reads, Trust is totally different and focuses on the lives of two teenagers who meet under dangerous circumstances.
Tust involves John and Edie both in their teens and first meet when they find themselves in a dangerous situation, a gun heist in a store.
An unlikely bond forms, John is one of the popular guys in school and Edie is one of the good girls or was until the incident that changed her attitude to life. Edie has recently moved from an all girls school and the two meet again On Edie's first day at her new school.
John was the guy who teachers saw as a trouble maker, lives with his uncle, has a drug dealing brother and loves to skateboard. Edie is the daughter of a single overprotective mum, went to an all girls school and after the incident changed schools to get away from the bullying which she had been subject to for years due to being overweight, friends who weren't really friends and hypocrisy
Since the incident Edie struggles with dreams and John who once sold weed for his brother turns over a new leaf wanting to do better at school. Both help each other and grow close together.
Trust is a story of two people who probably would not of not even entertained one-another but circumstance brought them together.
Trust is a sweet story told in Edie's pov. There's a lot of dialogue, conversations between Edie and John and apart from the beginning and another altercation near the end with Johns brother the pace is pretty slow.
An enjoyable YA read with very little angst or drama. I can't say I bonded with the characters, there was no build up to getting to know the characters you are thrust straight into the action of the heist, so you don't get their upbringing history, what like their inner thoughts and feelings are etc I would of preferred Johns pov as well.
Overall a good story with good likeable main characters and extended characters.

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple. The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzes into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman.
But my clock is ticking. See, I’m not like the rest. I have an illness.
Sometimes I conquer it.
Sometimes it conquers me.
My white knight has finally arrived.
Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
I love this series and each book holds its own surprises. LJ Shen has produced another book I didn’t want to put down.
Ruckus had me swooning, annoyed,heartbroken,overjoyed.All the feels are pulled out like a magnet in Ruckus.
Dean Cole AKA Ruckus. He was a hothole. A privileged, unhinged egomaniac from Todos Santos who thought he deserved everything and owed nothing. A manwhore but more importantly once the boyfriend of Millie LeBlanc.
Rosie LeBlanc; younger sister of Millie who is soon to be married to Vicious. Rosie has Cystic Fibrosis and was first introduced in book 1 vicious. She's brave,vibrant despite her illness, witty or sarcastic when she wants to be and kind hearted.
Ruckus claims it was always Rosie that had his heart, the clock was ticking and like the bible story of Jacob and Leah it was time to get his Rachel. Leah was never going to be a Rachel and he wanted his Rachel, it was always Rachel also known in this story as his Baby LeBlanc
I loved this reference, also Dean's references to astronomy all the beautiful words that came from Dean's mouth just at the right time when he wasn't being bossy or dirty mouthed but..... Rosie was a hard nut to crack and struggled with the obstacle of history, the one thing despite her unspoken love for Ruckus and that big cloud hovering over her head was; he was once her sisters.
Ruckus is a heartwarming read that I wasn't expecting not after the A hole that was Vicious and the naughty,dominant school boy that was Jaime so yes,I least expected Ruckus to be swoon-worthy. Don’t get me wrong he had his A hole moments, after all he was a Hot Hole,one of the boys, now a man and a millionaire, he was also treading the fine line between drinker and alcoholic.
Ruckus is a page turner of a read told in dual pov's containing hot moments, a good plot written in LJ Shen's brilliant style that has you curious or hungrily wanting to know how it's all going to turn out once you embark on the journey along with the characters.

A kickass home décor boutique – tick
A sassy mouth and absolutely no filter – tick
A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down - tick, tick, tick!
Or so I thought.
Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.
Which was what I wanted.
Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?
I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact, because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe.
After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.
4.5 SASSY STARS
Fan me down, phew, Ben Hunt, ladies hold on to your knickers.
All That i am is long overdue, It feels like forever since i read a book by Rachel Brookes and the wait was so worth it.
Ben is a detective and Sasha Hamilton is a part bar owner with her brother and boutique store owner.
Ben is bossy, hot and all Alpha whereas Sasha also names Sassy is well, shes full of Sass hence her nickname and together they are a perfect match all Ben has to do is get Sasha out of her commitment phobia.
All That I am gives you all the feels, you will swoon,laugh,get teary,excited and love every minute of this romance written brilliantly with hotness in all the right places including unexpected twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.
He was a man who I thought had the strength of a thousand warriors and the patience of a hundred saints, but I was quickly learning that he was just a man who wanted to give a woman the freedom to fly.
Brilliant plot that keeps you hooked and great secondary characters, I loved Gigi,Crazy John, Austin intrigued me and Missy was fun and everything a best friends should be.
Contains all that I love in contemporary romance read and I am so looking forward to the next book in the series.

Escaping to Credence was supposed to be Becca's shot at a new life, but some secrets refuse to stay hidden, and now that the truth is out, everything changes.
The people she thought she could trust lied. The guy she thought cared about her kept her in the dark. And with no one to turn to, Becca finds it hard to unravel the truth. When she finally does, her past and present collide in a way no one saw coming.
The truth can hurt you ... Some dares will destroy you.
Finally the conclusion to Liar Liar is here!!
I loved Liar Liar, the secrets, the twists and turns and the suspense continues on in book 2.
All is revealed eventually, why Becca was forced to uproot and move to another school, why She's hated and bullied by Kendall.
The not knowing was frustrating, it was prolonged and I envisioned the plot going differently to how it did or the reasons to be more scandalous?
Kendall, I still didn’t understand, most of her behavior I found didn’t make sense to me, she was more than a school bully and had played these sort of cruel games before, basically comes across as psychotic that no one did anything about? you have a group of friends that have all been her target at some point but life goes on? I didn't feel I got closure on that or understood especially with her being a significant character in the scheme of things spanning over two books, but I saw the conclusion, the end and new beginning of Becca and Evans journey which was enough.
I'm thinking out loud, I think I was hoping for more But....
Liar Liar and Truth or Dare is a good highschool romance with suspense, moments of hotness, twists and turns told in dual pov's.

From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry.
In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...
Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...
Second Chance Romance
I love books by Abbi Glines, I always finish with a sigh and love every part of the journey the characters embark on.
In You were mine you have Bethy and Tripp. They were both each others first loves but then distance and circumstances separated them.
Both moved on physically but never in their hearts.
Bethy began a new journey with Jace who then unfortunately died in an incident in the sea while trying to save Bethy.
A heartwarming and heartbreaking story, it's bitter sweet.
Eight years later Tripp returns and this time he is determined to stay and make Bethy his again only so much has happened, so much time lost, so much anger and hurt for Bethy and much to overcome so much so that all Tripp can do is bide his time.
You were mine pulls on all the emotions with its swoon-worthy moments,heartwarming moments and with Tripp's dirty mouth the fan me down scenes the hot moments.
All the characters you may have read about in this series are in this book so you also get a glimpse of your favorite characters. You were mine is a standalone but the series is interlinked so you still get a glimpse and can still catch up with characters from previous books.
Listened on audio with really good narration.
Recommended series and book, Ideal holiday or summer reading
"He would leave. And I'd be left with one more thing to move on from." - Bethy in YOU WERE MINE
My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.
Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.
Of course I say yes.
What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.
Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.
Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.
He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.
Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.
Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.
But after two weeks what I didn’t expect to discover is that I’d been wrong about him.
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.
That his arrogance is really confidence.
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.
So yes, I’d misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although I might still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.
And I want more of him.
The question is—does he want more of me?
3.5 Sexy stars
Firstly I love this cover
Secondly, this book is written by Kim Karr so I dived right in.
Thirdly, Sexy Jerk is a hate to lovers romance so again another reason to dive right in. So there were three ticks for this book before I even read it.
However, I didn’t think Nick was a jerk at all, the sexy part is right, he just did what single blokes do, yes, he had commitment issues due to something in his past but overall he's a nice guy.
Tess and Nick are already in the same circles Tess and Nick share the same godson and best friends.
Tess agrees to watch her godson Max for two weeks while her best friend and her husband finally get the chance to go on an overdue honeymoon, what Tess isn't aware of until she gets to Fiona's house is the babysitting duties are going to be shared with Nick Carrington the guy she pegged as a jerk,a manwhore and arrogant.
Tess begins to discover that maybe she read Nick all wrong and Nick is on a mission to also prove her wrong.
Nick is sweet,caring and has a hot dirty mouth.
Once the manwhore blinkers are removed from Tess's eyes she wants him and a hot relationship develops.
Sexy Jerk is a slow start to anything that had me excitedly or eagerly turning the pages except the hot sex scenes, a high percentage of the book is two people getting to know each other,figuring each other out,dating and discovering each others bodies.
Both characters are likeable,witty and are made for each other.
Tess wanted to start a new chapter in her life after her break up and she did all the way to a hea with Nick.
Sexy Jerk is a pleasant read told in dual pov's with no heavy angst or drama, an ideal Sunday read.

Noun: a difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation.
Verb: pledge or solemnly promise. Be engaged to be married.
I promised myself to a man. Well, technically, I promised myself to a boy. We were eight years old. Neighbours. He gave me a Cheezel, pushed it onto my finger, and asked me to marry him.
I ate the Cheezel.
I also said, “Yes” but that we’d have to wait until we were thirty.
It was my thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise.
Seriously, Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit engagement.
I wonder if he really does look like his profile picture, though.
4 Cheezel stars
Twenty-two years ago I promised myself to a girl. We were eight years old. Neighbours. I gave her a Cheezel, pushed it on her finger,asked her to marry me.....
she also said "yes" but that we'd have to wait until she turned thirty.
Plight is a story with humor and heartwarming moments a perfect Rom-Com.
The beginning of Plight starts with Elliot contacting Danielle the week of her birthday through Facebook, reminding her of their pledge and it was time to pay up, stick to her promise.
Elliot you would think he'd be a serious guy being a high profile lawyer but he's not. Elliott is goofy yes especially with his factual quotes, he's funny and determined to make amends and make Danielle Cunningham his once best friend his again.
Danielle's fun, a likable character shares an apartment with a football star, has a pug dog called Dudley also known as pugley with behavior issues and definitely surprised when Elliott contacts her, thinking at first it's a joke.
A humorous series of events follow, an enjoyable read. Plight is a light-read told in dual pov's.
If you're looking for hot it's not that kind of read, disappointed about the sexual chemistry aspect in Plight but it is romantic funny, and a good second chances, childhood friends to lovers story.

Jude and I managed to salvage something beautiful from the war torn rubble of our lives, a blissful happiness that we paid for in blood. We fought our way here, leaving pieces of ourselves along the way. I thought this was the happily ever after in our twisted fairy tale, but I was wrong.
I may be free by definition. That freedom came at a heavy cost and my family is about to pay the price. At any moment, this façade will come crashing down. Hard. The life I've lived—that kind of world—it stains you, and no matter how hard you try, you can never escape its wrath. Not even in death.
Love. Fear. Loss.
We're walking a wire and all that's beneath us is destruction.
We once lived in paradise with our perfect family but fairy tales don't last and soon the monsters come crawling back.
WIRE IS A CONTINUATION OF WRONG AND WRATH.
Make sure you've read Wrong.
I feel like a fish right now, I open my mouth I close my mouth, I'm speechless.
Jude and Tor have been hidden away for two and a half years they have a perfect life by the sea with their daughter but with Jude still having connections with the Cartel it was only a matter of time before someone came Knocking and boy did they come knocking.
Russian mafia,Mexican Cartel, it seems Jude has many enemies and Tor wants only for her daughter to be safe.
A mother's love knows no bounds.
I missed Jude and Tor's love and passion for each other and as a reader your taken on a rocky roller-coaster ride yet again with angst,twists and turns, danger at every corner.
I'm speechless right now, sad I'm not sure how to digest or what to make out of the explosive ending that subtly leads to another book.
Anything can happen and I don't want to make assumptions, only put my hope for Tor and Jude and their daughter Cayla in the hands of these brilliant but devious authors.
This series is a definite recommendation to any reader who loves angst,action the grittiness within a mafia read and to be taken on a nail-biting ride.
Told in dual pov's, I can't tell you if this book was fast paced read or not only that I couldn't turn the pages quick enough.

Some of her stories will strip you bare, some will give you nightmares, but the one thing she can promise is that she will always give you stories that make you feel.
Raw. Gritty. Love.

P.S. Stevie's greatest fear is the impending zombie apocalypse. Think about it: swarming armies of decaying, oozing corpses stumbling around with clicking teeth, trying to eat your face. Nothing about that is good. NOTHING!
From the New York Times best-selling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy - a story of friends, love, and lust.
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don't even like each other... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she's too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.
This fisherman got his biggest catch yet!
Oh Wow! book two in this hot delicious series.
When a group of friends go to Vegas, 3 girls celebrating finishing college and 3 guys just out for a good time they least expected to each wake up in the morning with wedding rings on their fingers. What do they do? they simply get their weddings annulled, well all except Ansel & Mia and the glorious juicy details of their story is in book one.
They all remain friends, all see each other on a regular basis but maybe for this couple the annulment was a maybe a little hasty, they are so in denial, cant keep their hands of each other in private one minute then trying to carry on the facade as "Just friends" the next.
Harlow has a movie star mother and each of her parents work in the industry, she also wants to work in the industry not as a movie star but shes been in the industry along with her parents for so long wants to follow in her parents footsteps.
Harlow has an internship, only, her biggest tasks seem to be getting coffee at the moment, not what she imagined but doesn't have the kind of attitude that lets it bother her., she's an easy going kind of girl. Finn however is a down to earth guy with a serious stern side, he works on his family's boat the success of the business is in his hands, you can't help but picture him as the kind of hot guy you would see on the programme Deadliest catch.
While Finn seems to be a serious guy in this partnership, Harlow brings a lightness with her smart quick witted mouth and funny comebacks.
A friends to lovers romance with intensely hot scenes Finn is one dirty fisherman who knows other uses for rope.
A light-hearted read one that will have you hot and bothered, swooning,laughing and just enjoying the characters journey to love.
Another great read, looking forward to more loving this series.
Whitton ‘Skinny’ Thorne– scarred skin only covers a beautiful soul.
Bitter with a capital B.
Life has been hell from the beginning when Whitton was burned as an infant, yet as much as he pushes me away I’m always coming back for more.
When I finally let go, he wants to let me in, how do I survive when we’ve both been scarred?
***Each book in the Ruthless Rebels MC is a new couple, but are best read in order. This is a biker book so please expect violence, foul language, and sexual situations. Do not buy if any of this offends you.***
He Intrigued me. His strength captivated me and the more time I had with Whitton Thorne in my life, the harder I fell in love with him.
Scarred is the third book in the series, I love it. Great characters, Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele always deliver the right amount of hotness,angst and drama within a club setting were the MC have a true brother concept,look after their own, they all have their own hidden scars and pasts and are all great characters in not just this series but ones before I love this author duo.
Whitton or Skinny as he's known is no exception to the scarred past, he even bears the physical scars from his mother who attempted many times to kill him through her mental illness.
Roe was with him throughout his childhood and they had a childhood to adult romance one you would think would be forever except one night Whitton disappeared and didn’t return.
Life goes on only Roe could never move on, although Roe is now a teacher, in her love life she very much alone, her mind always wondering back to the scarred boy now a man out there somewhere.
Over 10 years later Whitton and Roe are unexpectedly reunited.
A story of second chances,fate and destiny within an MC setting.
This sexyalpha,hot dirty mouthed biker made his claim and wasn't letting his woman go again.
Another great addition to the series.

Some bad girls need a firm hand to keep them in line.
I’m bad enough to need two.
Two older men who can teach me a lesson when I misbehave.
Two hot bodies to keep me warm in bed at night.
Two best friends who can learn to share a filthy-mouthed little brat like me.
After all… dirty girls need very dirty daddies.
Carrie Wells is nothing but trouble.
She’s wild and difficult. Not worth anyone’s time.
Carrie Wells is a beautiful little brat. She’s also a vulnerable young adult on my case list.
She’s half my age and totally off limits. I’m breaking every rule in the book by giving her somewhere to stay when she’s out on the streets with nowhere to go. And I’m breaking every rule of friendship by holing her up in my best friend Jack’s house while he’s away on business.
I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.
And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.
He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.
I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells
Carrie Wells has a chip on her shoulder bigger than the file of case notes with her name on the cover.
Carrie Wells, misunderstood,labelled, nothing but a case file and disappointment to those who work for the foster care system and the town she came from. Shes a bag of backchat and bluster and shows no respect to anyone.
Michael is Carrie's case worker but his time has run out in a few days time Carrie will be homeless, no one wants her, no one wants to take this bag of trouble and attitude in but Michael see's Carrie for the young woman she is and he feels helpless in his job.
Carrie finds herself homeless, walking the streets and Michael finds himself in a position where he wants to help her, he is no longer her case worker and lets Carrie stay at his friends home while he is out of town.
Michael finds himself fighting his feelings and emotions, Carrie has really got under his skin since his first meeting with Carrie.
When Jack meets Carrie and gets to know her he finds himself in the same position too.
A battling of the minds begin, a journey of right or wrong, do we? don't we? Carrie being the minx she is makes no secret of wanting both of these men who have taken her under their wings, Carrie begins to change and she seems more peaceful, more happy being with Michael and Jack and in a matter of time all Jack and Michael's feelings of adoration and love let the lust win out with their dirty little girl.
Dirty Daddies was not what I expected at all, Jade really did a brilliant job of allowing the reader to get to know the characters, understand the situations, Carries background and the reasoning for her behaviour, her outbursts her wanting to be loved and it was a slow progression to anything sexual to which I am so pleased about.
I'll be honest, I expected something dirty,hot and just sex, two grown men taking advantage of a vulnerable girl, but there was more depth to the story and that made me appreciate Jades writing style even more.
Yes its hot, yes it contains M/F/M which isn't my normal kind of read and no it wan't what i expected at all.
Told in each persons pov. Dirty Daddies is a guilty pleasure kind of read with characters you can't help but warm to.

Disgraced by Natasha Knight is coming soon!
Release Date: May 26th
Genre: Dark Romance
ADD TO YOUR TBR→ http://bit.ly/2poPUgf
Disgrace: the condition of one fallen from grace.
She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist.
The first night…
I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.
She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.
Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.
And she complicates things.
She thinks she is my disgrace. Truth is, my fall had begun the moment I’d laid eyes on her.
She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist
Well after Dishonourable, I wanted Damon and Lina's story and oh how Natasha Knight delivered!
Lina is the younger sister of Sophia and Damon the twin brother of Raphael from the previous book.
Damon intrigued me he comes across as the complete opposite of Raphael who has a dark edge whereas Damon seems more sensible, hes training to be a priest when we first meet him and when Sophia first takes Lina in she is only in her teens and Damon and Lina seem to have a connection, he cares for her and with all that is going on in the last story he takes her under his wing.
A curios friendship develops but now years later Lina living in New York and Damon due to be ordained as a Priest she is the welcomed distraction Damon wasn't expecting when they bump into each other in a piano bar where Lina is the pianist.
Two souls who were always meant to be together, who went through hell and back to get here.
I think that sentence sums this book up justly. Damon finds Lina in a position she can't get out of with yet another mafia boss her stubbornness of wanting to deal with it on her own has her in danger and Damon tries to protect her.
Damon comes across as anything but a priest with his dirty sexy mouth Lina is the temptation he just can't resist.
Damon: She woke something inside me that left me feeling out of control. That had my heart beating fast, that made my heart pump blood hard through my veins.
Disgraced has twists and turns, suspense,it's sexy, dangerous and alluring.
Raphael and Sophia also makes an appearance in this book so you get a glimpse of their happily ever after all over again, but ...... oh yes, there's more, there's another brother, I know fan me down, and hes mysterious too, I cannot wait for his story.
A captivating plot from beginning to end. Told in dual pov's. Although this links to the previous book and is recommended you read from the beginning to get a better idea of the series of events it can be read as a standalone.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.
Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.
As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.
West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…
Finished with a sigh, such a sweet story.
Abbi Glines, gotta love her books, I always thoroughly enjoy them, they always provoke all the feels and Until Friday night is no different.
You want to relax unwind with a good book, lock the world away and just absorb someone else's story then Abbi Glines always delivers.
A high school romance. West Ashby is the typical Jock, popular with the girls.
Maggie is the quiet girl, the new girl who has come to live with her aunt, she doesn't talk, she experienced a horrific tragic experience and hasn't talked since.
West and Maggie become close when West struggles with the impending death of his father, he turns to Maggie his best friends cousin, there's a silent understanding at first, West knows she has suffered at the loss of her parents and Maggie knows what he is going through. When Maggie first meets West at the field party she saw sees past the playboy image and just sees the pain in his eyes.
A friendship blossoms and eventually becomes more as both help each other,heal each other.
Until Friday night is the kind of read that you will swoon over,sigh over,smile over and rejoice over.
I loved it, another heartfelt and thoughtful read by Abbi Glines.
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.
But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.
When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Sweet, Sweet Filthy Filthy Boy
Oh I loved this book and Ansel, the sweet filthy French boy with his hot,swoon worthy words, phew! fan me down this was one hot read, even better in audio, I loved his accent.

Mia hasn't started College yet and decides to return to France with her new husband both still discovering and learning about each other.
Mia: He makes me feel like I’m the only person on the planet. He looks at me like he’s one second away from devouring me.
Sweet Filthy boy is funny,heartwarming and oh so hot.
I loved the characters, Mia and her indecision for her future, her relationship with her best friends and Ansel with his sweet loving ways, his maturity and wisdom and the way he treats Mia like a delicate flower one minute and a sex goddess the next.
It was fun, gave you all the good feels and it was hot, I loved it and will definitely read more in this series.
Once upon a time, I believed in fairy-tales.
But then he took me.
And he taught me that life isn’t a fairy-tale.
He is scarred. Broken.
A dark and wild thing.
His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.
His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.
He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.
He’s destroyed my life.
He’s trained me to beg for his affection.
This prison is a place where sunlight doesn’t reach.
He taught me that hate is born in darkness.
And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

4.5 My Monster stars
Beautiful things were meant to be broken....
This isn't your usual damsel in distress versus captor and it definitely isn't a fairytale romance.
Right from the beginning of Beast you're thrust into the mind games,the darkness,the gripping and grittyness of the plot when Bella is stalked,persude,obsessed over then eventually taken by her captor.
Beast is a swirl of dark mind games and twisted events.
The motive? revenge for the crimes of her father, the end game, death.
Bella endures endless mind games,caged,mentally tortured and sexually humiliated by her hooded tormentor, what once was pure becomes tainted.
Monsters don't always come from the darkness, sometimes they hide in broad daylight.
There are more than one monster in Beast, twists and turns and revelations you wouldn't expect. Truths are exposed and dark deeds are thrown into the light as Bella begins to see her beast for what he is, the child he once was, taken,deceived,used and trained to be a killing machine.
He taught me that hate is born in darkness and then he taught me that love is too.
This is a story of two people who begin to learn from each other, through revelations new life is born and although the beginning cruel and gruesome Beast blossoms into a heartwarming story one I didn’t expect.
A clever and brilliantly executed plot that has you eagerly wanting to know the outcome.
He is my tormentor. My greatest source of pain and fear. But somehow he has also become my sanctuary.
Beast contains dark disturbing scenes, told in dual pov's, a standalone that leads to hea.

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.
Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me--if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.
Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted-- so I need a wife.
To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.
The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .
The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .
The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .
It all helps me forget.
I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.
She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.
A sexy, standalone romance.
5 - TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN STARS
Louise bay really does deliver a sizzling read.
I loved this book Louise bay knows just how to pull you in and keep you there right to the very last page.
A hot, rich British guy who says all the right things and makes you swoon what more could you ask for?.
What starts of as a one night stand becomes more when Scarlett and Ryder cross paths again in a business meeting.
Scarlett has regrettably a failed marriage behind her and pours herself into her business with her friend, her company is her independence, her future, her journey to proving a point to her ex that she can make it on her own, so when Ryder comes in with a business deal that involves shares in the company she has built, she isn't interested but the company needs his investment to move forward.
Ryder is in a position where his ageing Grandfather is urging him to settle down and get married and he must marry to inherit the estate but Ryder has been a man-whore for so long and claims he will never entertain marriage until he is suddenly dealt the hand of no choice when his Grandfather becomes ill causing him to rethink his position and to protect all he has built.
The meeting with Scarlett sparks ideas off in Ryder's head and he proposes something to benefit them both... marriage, an arrangement that would save his inheritance and Scarlett her company.
This part of the plot Isn't unique, arranged marriage as a business deal isn't something I haven't come across in a book before but Louise bay deliver's it in such a talented and dazzling way I was hooked and loved the journey of both Scarlett and Ryder as they entered their fake marriage together.
We were bonded together in desperation. Soon to be wedded in matrimony. Quid pro quo
Her gaze was like the sun, warming my body, relaxing and unknotting each tense muscle.
I loved Louise Bay's words, I loved these characters, the sparks, Ryders appetite for Scarlett, the journey they both took to discovering love was creeping up on them. Duke of Manhattan is another brilliant read by Louise bay.
Told in dual pov's, a standalone, a hot sizzling recommended read.

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.
Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.
But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.
"I'd give you the world"
Oh when you finish a book with a dreamy sigh, what more can you ask for.
I love the boom effect, the insta love and Aurora's bossy, possessive alphas and although Sage was adopted into the Mayson family he definitely picked up the family genes.
A playboy, a magnet to the ladies but as soon as he meets Kim at the side of the road trying to change a tyre he only has eyes for her.
Science says it only takes four minutes to fall in love with someone. I didn't believe that was true until I met Sage Mayson.
I liked Kim's character she was just likeable, a sweet character, a hairdresser who had also been adopted when she was a baby.
Until Sage is a sweet read that has its hot and I mean fan me down hot! and swoon-worthy moments.
I love this series just as much as I loved The Until series before, well not as much but I love it.
It's odd and bizarre though that I was swooning over Sage's words when a while back I did exactly the same with Nico who is his dad, I think for that reason I will always appreciate the first series more because I see these characters as "The kids".
Another heart melting read from Aurora Rose Reynolds, told in dual pov's with no heavy angst or drama, just a sweet heartwarming boom effect romance for you to enjoy.

COVER REVEAL COMING MAY 12TH
I still have the dreams, baby. Do you?
In mine, I plead and wait for your touch to come like it always did.
But it never does.
I strain against the iron, but you’re no longer there in the shadows.
One single shard of deep dark hope was enough back then.
My claws, your fangs have sunk deep.
Follow my trail of blood,
my trail of anger, desolation.
Am I the same man?
Brewed on vengeance,
laced with tenderness,
my fury for you.
Chained in brutal darkness, they fell in love. Free in the world, they were torn apart. Empires rise, empires fall, and still, she burns in his soul. But between them now runs a wild river of ambition, greed, and blood. So much blood. He’ll do anything for revenge, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Love and vengeance are the same kind of savage...
**This is for mature readers only! Graphic sexual situations and trigger warnings. Some situations may not be comfortable for all readers.
Are you ready for Finger's epic story? The loner, the warrior, the avenger, the outlaw. FURY is coming June 2nd and is a complete standalone and darker than my other books. Make sure you add it to your TBR-—> http://bit.ly/2nug8eo
He'd lain his heart and soul in my hands and I would keep them safe. I would never let go.
I've said this before when I have read a book by Cat Porter, QUALITY, a quality read, nothing rushed, nothing left unturned, you're taken on a journey through the lives of two people telling a story that bleeds out feelings and Hurts, the good the bad the ugly from the very beginning right to the end.
Serena and Justin's fate was forged the moment they shared a dark place in time together, both in captivity under different circumstances, sharing moments nothing or nobody could erase.
Justin was captured by a rival club when he was just a prospect, tortured, maimed, beaten down and starved. Serena was also a captive, taken by Med the president of the smoking guns when she was a just a teenager, used,abused, raped, Serena was a slave to Med's needs.
Justin or Finger as he became shared a bond a moment in time with Serena that birthed a promise that one day they would both be free.
On Fingers release he promised to return for Serena.
This story spans over years, you are taken through so many emotions and so many events surrounding the club's, the characters and extended characters it's heartrending,frustrating,saddening,maddening.
A 20 year long rollercoaster ride with more downs that ups.
What started off as a heartpounding journey, I felt was fast paced and had me eagerly turning pages slowed and stretched through so many events, it was long, so long and at times patience and the need to see a happily ever after had me pushing through.
With so much content I can't even fully sumn Fury up other than say; Fury is a tainted story that became beautiful with a spotlight on two people in darkness that eventually lived in colour.
*contains rape,abuse, consenting m/f/f scenes.
told in dual pov's.
She is at the crux. She is the flame. My fever, my fury. Let it roar.

Savage Collision Book1
Release Date 12th May.
Add to your TBR: http://bit.ly/2pwFrQb
A kiss could bond you, taint you, claim you. If you let it, it could own you.
A kiss from a stranger was highly unlikely.
A kiss from a man who hid himself from me, yet slowly tormented me, was unlike any other kiss.
It was the kiss of death.
It was my hands in cuffs chained to his waist.
And only he could set me free.
How could I be so blind? How could I have let a man that was delicious as sin take a grip on me? No matter how hard I tried to pull, those cuffs stayed glued to him as the wall that stood between us.
I had to smash that wall, I had to see the truth.
Even if we collide. Even if he’s my own savage collision. I have to be set free.
The Savage Love Duet Book #2
Add to your TBR:http://bit.ly/2qkC5hc
She was everything, yet she was nothing.
She was there, then she wasn’t.
I didn’t expect her, never wanted her.
But there she was, everywhere yet nowhere.
She drew me in with her looks. Locked me with her first words, then stole me with her lust.
She was everything I didn’t know I was searching for, yet nothing I needed.
She was a conundrum, difficult and confusing.
One who was impossible of staying away from.
What did I just read? I feel like this book chewed up all the logic in my brain and spat it right back at me.
My heads been in a washing machine, been in a dryer but still come out soiled.
I've read previous books by TL Smith, been taken on the highs and lows, taken to the edge, through darkness and pain but these characters are something different altogether.
Milanka's story starts off as a girl with a prostitute of a mother living in a one bed-roomed trailer, sex is a regular event in the tiny trailer and Milanka sees and is surrounded by things children should not be subject to.
She's a loner with her jumbled up twisted thoughts and dreams her only company, a stranger to trust, she's a survivor but yet weak, a sex addict but a prude, Milanka is a contradiction, a complex character who is desired by, obsessed by, infatuated and consumed by, two men.
He plays with me like I'm his own personal possession and I hang on every touch and pull he gives me.
Derrik is the high school boyfriend she left behind. He'd pimped her out to his friends and used her in unimaginable ways but even years later won't let her go, she moves, she runs and he finds her, its beyond obsession.
Connick enters the scene later and becomes a man of mystery with a dark edge but also reveals the same fervid obsession.
I'm in love with a man who has more secrets than the devil himself, I was born to a mother who shouldn't have been a mother and I have a crazy ex-boyfriend who I can't seem to escape.
His entry into my life was savage we collided in a way I didn't see coming.
The plot contains sex, lots of sex, twists and turns told in Milanka's pov.
It's psychological, scary, maddening I can't sum it up but can only look forward to the next story and continuation in this Duet.
He scares me.He friends me. He steals me. I let him.
