I should have told her everything.
How much I loved her.
How much I’ve always loved her.
But I didn’t.
I just wasn’t made that way.
Instead... I claimed her.
Until... I broke her.
My best friend.
From my mind to my heart, to every single bone in my body.
She owned me.
I was hers.
It was always her.
The only thing I feared more than losing her was forgetting her.
I hated how much I needed her.
She was mine.
Always and forever.
I hated her then.
But Harley Jameson was about to find out how much…
I LOVED her now.
HATED YOU THEN MUST BE READ BEFORE LOVE YOU NOW.
The conclusion to this roller-coaster angst-filled love story.
The angst killed me, in some parts I held my breath waiting for the outcome, for the car crash, oh my, I have no words for what I have just been through while reading the concluding part of Harley and Jackson's story.
This has been a journey full of ups and downs, stemming right back from childhood. Two children who hated each other, two children who secretly loved each other, who then became two teens who were on this love-hate cycle right up until their adult lives.
I got frustrated with Harley, I picked sides at times, I felt the hurts, the joys, the emotions, I was so invested in their journey wanting a happy ending, I could not put this book down.
If you have read M Robinson before you will know what you are in for, this author really puts her readers through the emotions and I love it. If you have read Dylan and Aubrey's story UNDO ME from the good o'l boys series, let me tell you, this had that kind of feel and I absolutely loved their journey.

My name is Dominic Corsino, and I have a ravenous appetite for money, power, and women.
I'm a little bit disappointed, I went into this book looking for a Mafia boss, I love those types of reads, but Dominic wasn't at all how I expected. Dominic is a Mafia boss, yes, and following his father's death he has taken over as head of the family, however, he wants out, he is nowhere near the ruthless leader his father was and this story is about protecting his family name, doing things right, staying within the law.
It was a good story that didn't lack angst or drama.
Faith is the best friend of Dominic's sister, recently separated from her cheating husband and has her own battles to fight. Dominic puts Faith up in his home while she is fighting for what she is owed from her husband having been left with nothing.
Faith and Dominic have always been attracted to each other but of course Faith was married and now she is free Dominic makes his move, he basically sweeps her off her feet, there is no fight there at all and together as the story progresses they help each other fight the battles they are both facing.
There's angst, danger and some interesting characters. It was a good read but didn't blow me away.
FROM THE #1 'NEW YORK TIMES' BESTSELLING AUTHOR COMES AN UNEXPECTED LOVE STORY OF FAMILY, SECRETS, AND THE MOST INTIMATE OF DECEPTIONS.
My estranged twin brother, Julian, was always the wonder boy - and soon-to-be CEO of our ruthless father's corporation. My mother and me? Left behind. Now, years after tearing our family apart, my father dares to ask "me" for a favor? Pretend to be Julian while he fights to survive a tragic accident. It can save the company. Nobody will be the wiser. It'll be our secret.
I can play Dad's favorite. I'll do anything for Julian. And for my mother, who'll want for nothing.
But this double life comes with a beauty of a hitch: my very real feelings for Julian's fiancée, Isobel. Not only am I betraying Julian, I'm deceiving a woman I love. She doesn't suspect a thing. As lies compound, lines are crossed and loyalties tested, all I can ask myself is. . .what have I done?
Because sooner or later something's got to give. There's no way I'm giving up Isobel. But once the truth is exposed, it might not be my choice at all.

Wow! From a car crash, to waiting for the crash to happen.
"I was Dr. Jekyll. And the minute my brother woke up., she would get Mr. Hyde"
The story is pretty much summed up in the Blurb but what you don't get is the feelings, the emotion, the build-up to how it all unfolds. I thought it was so exciting and by 80% I was gripping onto my kindle waiting for the outcome.
Twin brothers separated in their teens, one lives with the mother and the other the father. When Julian is involved in an accident their Father who is on the brink of a huge deal approaches Bridge with a proposition he can't refuse.
With medical bills for his dying mother and working two jobs to get by Bridge steps into his brothers shoes as CEO of the company in the hope his brother will come out of his coma any day so he can go back to his life better off and with his mother cared for but its much, much more complicated than that, Julian also has a fiance who he isn't allowed to reveal his true identity too.
Bridge was a gent, and although he was highly attracted to Izzy, he would not sleep with her until she knew his true identity.
Izzy had been treated like a doormat, cheated on by Julian and on the day of his car crash had ended things but being the woman she is, went back to care for him following the accident, only it wasn't Julian at home it was Bridge unbeknownst to her. As the days and weeks went on Izzy began to have feelings for Julian she thought had died.
Bridge made little slip-ups which made you think, will this be it?, will she find out, I was on edge for him and I loved it.
The story was original, I found it intriguing and intense and I love it when the best man wins.
Told in first person dual pov. A standalone and leads to a hea
"I keep telling myself that one more sip won’t hurt, and that I won’t get drunk on him.
What a lie.
I’m always drunk on him.
Totally and utterly intoxicated by him."

One month, I fell for him.
Two, I was a goner.
Three, I was a daydreamer.
But by the fourth, it was a nightmare.
Everything came in beats.
But it’s the fourth beat that completely ruined me.
With a shattered heart.
He was my nightmare.
I have read nearly all books by TL Smith, this though, I can't put my finger on it or form the right words but it was like I was reading something from a different author. The style felt different and the flow somehow.
This is part one and I am eager to find out how it will all come together or if I will even like the characters in the second book, at the moment I'm not feeling any connection at all, so for now, I'm left scratching my head and feeling confused, its like I have been given pieces to a puzzle but don't know where they fit.
Secrets, lies, angst, BDSM, this is certainly different to previous books that I usually love and consume hungrily by this author.
LOVE DRUNK finished all too soon and felt like just the beginning, the tip of the flame and I am hoping for an explosive conclusion in part two along with answers.

FROM GOODREADS DEBUT FINALIST AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HURRICANE COMES THE FIRE.
Evelyn Danaher lives a quiet, uneventful life. That is until she meets Tommy. The only man who makes her lose control of her temper and her knickers at the same time.
Tattooed Irish firefighter Tommy Riordon found the woman of his dreams, then crashed and burned when a misunderstanding left him on his knees, clutching his balls.
They are wrong for each other in every way. But the very best love stores are the ones that shouldn’t work. After all, the fire that doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.
Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.
I'm a mixture of happy and sad right now. Happy that I finally got to read Tommy's story, happy that I got a glimpse of my favorite characters again, sad that it's ended and sad for parts of this journey I have just been on.
"The fire that doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"
I absolutely loved Tommy, he's the joker of the group, the Irish man with swagger who has all the girls falling over him with his cheeky smile and one-liners Tommy doesn't have to work too hard to get the girl, well, until he meets the fiery Irish redheaded, and stout Catholic girl Evelyn.
Man-whore meets good girl, I absolutely love these kinds of stories.
I loved the chase, the story of how Tommy and Evelyn met, I loved the banter between these Irish boys, I even loved the parts that made me cry.
I have waited a long time for this book, I wish there were more in this series.
I have swooned, laughed, cried and happily sighed. All the emotions!
THE FIRE can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you start with The Hurricane and meet the whole gang before reading this book, which is like a finale in a way.

“Sorry to burst ya’ bubble baby, but murderin’ rapists pick and choose their own hours. Now explain to me why I spent good money for a phone that’s never on,” he said, relieving me of my heavy bag, and walking with me up the three flights of external stairs to get to Joe’s flat.
“Let me give you the money for the phone,” I pleaded. I never intended to keep it, but when he left it behind, I gave into the lure of the shiny box. Within ten minutes of charging it, a text from Tommy had arrived and he hadn’t let up since.
“Fine, I’ll take payment in kind,” he agreed.
“I’m not the sort of girl who’ll be paying for things with her body. If that’s the kind of person you take me for, I’m afraid you don’t know me at all. Now, I suggest you leave, and you can take your bloody mobile phone with you,” I hissed, utterly humiliated and absolutely furious that he would say something like that, when I’d honestly been giving serious thought to the idea of the two of us dating.
“Hold ya’ horses, baby. I never mentioned anything about what kind of payment I was after did I? If you’d given me half a chance, I would’ve asked you for a date. Seems to me that you’re the one whose dirty mind ran straight to sex,” he replied, shocking me into absolute silence.
“I…I’m sorry. I don’t know what it is about you, but you bring out the absolute worst in me,” I said.
“So it’s my fault you were mean!” he teased, making me even more flustered. “Well for that, my price just went up.”
“By how much?” I asked, suspiciously.
Behind the "lights, camera, action" of Hollywood lies a world of deception, love, and seduction.
Are you ready for Hollywood Royalty?
An entertainment journalist was the last thing I thought I would be doing.
I thought once I got my degree, I would be reporting on stories that made a difference, but now all I do is report on who broke up with who and who is dating who.
I was over it.
Then I got my next assignment.
He’s Hollywood’s bad boy.
He works hard, and he plays even harder.
He’s rude, he’s condescending, and he’s made it known he doesn’t want me on the tour.
With one month on the road with him, two things might happen
One, I may never work in this industry again.
Two, I may just be like everyone else and fall for Hollywood’s Playboy.
I listened to this in audio and the male narrator's voice, hot damn! is like chocolate *fans self
I am loving Natasha's books, can't seem to get enough, they have absolutely everything I love in a modern-day romance, hotness, drama, angst and riveting characters.
HOLLYWOOD PLAYBOY is the first book in a new series and is about an actor who's team select 10 journalists to take on the film premier tour with them.
Jessica is one of those ten journalists. Since Jessica reported a scoop on Tyler you could say she is his least favorite journalist in the industry by Tyler's team, almost the enemy in this scenario but she goes along anyway, in fact, she has too, begrudgingly following orders from her boss.
An enemies to lovers romance.
I loved everything about this, how the plot slowly unravels, how you get to see the real Tyler behind the scenes of the glitz and glamour as opposed to the life portrayed by the press and you also get to see the vulnerable side of Jessica who comes across as a take no shit kind of woman, but both it seems to hide behind their jobs and how others perceive them, giving people what they expect.
Tyler is so swoon, I can't describe him another way, he's hot sexy and so adorable, outside of his Hollywood shoes and in them.
I loved both characters, the plot and everything that lead up to the heartwarming hea. I would definitely recommend this book and can't wait for my next Natasha Madison read.

Being a fighter is in my blood. My grandfather was a fighter, my father was a fighter, and I'm a fighter. I live for the rush of adrenaline and sensation of victory. When I fight, I give it my all. I step into the octagon and I fight until there's nothing left to fight for.
He's been my best friend for most of my life. I've fought with him, fought against him, and for the longest time I fought for him, for us. Until he pushed me away, leaving me no choice but to tap-out.
Fighting is what saved me. It shed the old me and I became a newer shinier version of myself. Until it took away everything I loved. I gave up and tapped out.
Then one day, she came back into my life and reminded me that some things in life are worth fighting for. Now I'm fighting for us, day by day, proving to her that our happily ever after is worth fighting for.
This book is a stand-alone MMA romance.
Available in Kindle Unlimited!
I was looking for a good fighter romance, I didn't find one.
This isn't what I thought it would be, yes, the characters were fighters but the plot didn't focus much on that or their gradual build-up to the big championship fight they both took part in, in the latter part of the book, it was blase.
The plot was mainly focused on Marco and his drug problem and his inability to stay and face his problems which was so lusterless, drab, lacked drama between the words.
I also thought the heroin would have more backbone, a bit of sass, she didn't.
The plot I found choppy, were it would jump from one thing to another with no flow.
It was an ok read but I felt no connection to the plot or characters, however I will give this author another go and see if there is improvement.
An emotional, angsty, rockstar romance from the bestselling author of The Trouble With You and Wicked Beginnings.
The sweetheart of Country is about to show the bad boys of Rock, it only takes a single beat for everything to change.
Evangeline Walker knows how quickly everything can change.
But nothing can prepare her for the moment she meets Rafe Hunter.
Intense gray eyes.
Tattoos inked on his skin just begging to be touched.
Those aren’t the reasons Eva should stay away from him though.
The fact he’s the bassist for America’s hottest rock band is the reason she should run and never look back.
Everyone knows the greatest love stories all start somewhere.
... this is their beginning.
Rush is a 50,000 word Black Hearts Still Beats prelude novel. Rise (BHSB: pt. one) and Rule (BHSB: pt. two) are coming soon!
"What are we doin' Rafe?"
He stared up at me
"Falling" he whispered
Oh my days, I am so hooked already. Rush had All the feels.
You know the kind of feeling you get when you begin a journey with the characters, maybe that journey starts off were they are children, or teens and you enter on a journey with them, you feel part of them, the ups and downs, the high's and the lows, right up to adult life, I'm talking about THOSE FEELS and this is how the beginning of Rafe and Evangeline's story felt and its only the beginning.
This the beginning on Rafe and Evangeline's story. How they met, behind the stage curtains of a talent show that Evangeline had entered while Rafe's band-mate sat out front on the judging panel and how they have instant connection and chemistry, if only Rafe wasn't a mega rock-star, if only Evangeline didn't have secrets she didn't want to share, I have a feeling there will be a lot of "if only's" coming my way.
RUSH is the back story and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to more. I got the feeling while reading this book that I was on the brink of something epic, poetic and I want more, I need more.

The former Tin Gypsy motorcycle club has everyone in Clifton Forge, Montana convinced they’ve locked their clubhouse doors and ripped off their patches. Everyone but Bryce Ryan. There’s more happening at the club’s garage than muscle car restorations and Harley rebuilds. Her instincts are screaming there’s a story—one she’s going to tell.
As the new owner of the small town’s newspaper, Bryce is hungry for more than birth announcements and obituaries. When a woman is brutally killed and all signs point to the Tin Gypsies, Bryce is determined to expose the club and their leader, Kingston “Dash” Slater, as murderers.
Bryce bests Dash match after match, disappointed her rugged and handsome opponent turns out to be an underwhelming adversary. Secrets are exposed. Truths defeat lies. Bryce is poised to win this battle in a landslide.
Then Dash breaks all the rules and tips the scales.
One kiss, and she’s fighting to save more than just her story. She’s fighting to save her heart from the Gypsy King
RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 29th
"She was more than under my skin
She was in there. Deeper than I wanted to admit to myself".
Well, this book turned out to be nothing at all like I expected. I expected MC with all the angst and hotness, like MC books I have read before but it wasn't like that at all.
Gypsy King was different, it was more like a murder mystery.
The MC had closed the gates and the MC was no more, a decision made by members after too many lives lost. The once-troubled town was now a ghost town with trouble no longer knocking on its doors by rival clubs.
Dash is the ex-president of the Gypsy Kings, he runs a garage along with previous members of the club and his father Draven who was also once the president of the MC.
Dash and the ex MC members have lead a normal quiet life since closing the MC down until there's a murder of a woman visiting the small town and all evidence is pointing towards Dash's father who was last seen at the woman's hotel.
Dash has no choice but to find clues and prove his dad has been set up before he is sent down for a murder he didn't commit.
Bryce is the new reporter in town, she's pushy and on a mission to dig up dirt on the Gypsy Kings and prove Draven's guilty but she ends up working alongside Dash to find the murderer.
Bryce is looking to prove Draven guilty, Dash to prove his innocence, they butt heads but can't deny the chemistry between them.
Dash has all the swagger, charm and cocky attitude of an MC president, I loved him, he may not run an MC anymore but he was definitely ALL That!
Gypsy King is a really good read, an enemies to lovers romance, it wasn't what I expected from when that cover first caught my eye but it's a damn good read, one I couldn't put down anyway and I loved the twists and turns, the plot, the hot moments and the swoon-worthy hea.
I am so looking forward to more in this series, hoping for answers left unsaid in this book regarding other characters and I will be anxiously awaiting the next book.
Arc received for review purposes
Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn't my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he's not annoying me.
I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I'm getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I've ever made for myself.
One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.

Another enjoyable read by Natasha Madison.
An enemy to lovers romance containing light, funny moments and plenty of hotness.
Lauren is starting a new job, its a new start for her now that she's a single mum and she's ready to get back Into work after divorcing her cheating husband.
Austin is one of those bosses who has worked his way through a lot of personal assistants, he's bossy, rude, basically, he's an A-hole but a hot A-hole and he's about to meet his match.
Lauren has a backbone, she's sassy and outspoken. There's instant chemistry between the two of them but instead of pretty fireworks, there are heated explosions.
Lauren wants to prove she is no pushover and tries to teach Austin, her bossy boss a lesson but it backfires more than once.
I enjoyed Tempt the boss, it's a light-hearted read with enough going on to keep you interested, I Iiked the characters and the plot although not original, I have read many similar.
I also liked Lauren's quirky sister too, who I'm looking forward to reading more about in her own book.
Hot in all the right places, swoon moments, great characters and finishes with a hea, perfect.
I listened to this in audio which was good but the male narrator's voice didn't have much emotion at times and I think the funny parts of this book may have been funnier to me if I had read this and those parts left to my own imagination rather than how he told it.
Temptation. It’s a powerful thing.
It possesses you. Corrupts you. Turns a pure soul into a reckless beast.
Once it has you in its clutches, you can’t escape it. It won’t let go, not until it perverts everything innocent.
The day she walked into my life, I should have known I’d never be the same again. Her secrets lured me in, enticed me with truths that would be my ultimate ruin.
I had a war to win. Battles to fight. But her scent turned me into a crazed hunter, manipulating me down a different path of destruction.
In the end, she will be my downfall.
Until then…I’ll keep her.

Oh wow, DERANGED was so hot, sexy and addictive I loved it!!
DERANGED is action packed, the heat was definitely turned up in Onyx and Wraith's story.
I have to say even though I loved the previous books in the series with the American street Kings president Granit, his brother Onyx heated it up on the sexy, alpha male scales, he was hot! swoon-worthy and I absolutely love a woman with backbone something Wraith had in abundance.
When a mysterious Harley riding woman walks into a bar, sexy, attractive, covered in tat's, she attracts a whole lot of attention. It was definitely lust at first sight for Onyx and something in him felt pulled towards her and protective of her despite her sass.
No sooner had she appeared, she' was gone and the mystery woman who keeps turning up like a vision becomes like mystery for Onyx to solve.
Behind the brewing romance there also simmers trouble for the cub with Slither still causing problems. DERANGED is a brilliantly balanced read, I just did not want to put this book down there was always something holding my interest, it was gripping, intense, with danger, angst, revenge, twists and turns, bloodshed and MC wars, I absolutely loved it and I definitely can't wait for more in this series.
Izzy Moffit is finally free from her toxic parents, and she’s vowing to only take care of those who care for her from now on, especially her best friend Paris Hemsworth—the only strength and support she’s ever known.
But a mistreated heart is always the softest, and Izzy can’t keep people out for long. Before she realises it, Izzy is losing her way again, and she soon begins to understand that not all villains look like monsters.
Some offer themselves as lovers; others as friends.
The battles she thought she’d left behind have only just begun…
The only thing that can save her now is an unexpected hero, and he seems to take on many different forms throughout her life until, one day, he shows up at her front door, ready to save the day, her future, and most importantly:
Different, Entertaining, I liked Izzy Moffitt's journey.
This is very different from any romance books I have read before, Izzy's journey is almost like a love affair with her best friend Paris. A journey of how they grow together as children, become one another's anchor through times of trouble and then there are the teenage years which all lead to College years and later through circumstances they are separated which leads to Izzy then drifting through life making one mistake after another, all the while pining for and missing her best friend like she is her missing soulmate, a piece of her she can't live without and can't function without.
I enjoyed the Izzy Moffitt life adventure with its many ups and downs, more downs than ups but enjoyable all the same. Izzy's story spans from her young life with her abusive father to her late twenties where she eventually finds peace and hopefully love.
The latter end of this book from about 80% is when she meets Ethan, it's like the stars align and I thought finally, YES!! and I could not get enough of this, I was finally loving the romance element of Izzy's story which I then discovered continues in Ethan's book which is book 3 in this series. I was disappointed, the romance lover in me wanted the hea. It became like a book of two halves and I desperately want more of the latter half.
I love the build-up in a romance, the getting to know you stages, the chase, I'm not sure now Izzy and Ethan have already discovered each other and met in this book I will get what I love in a romance read, but I suppose will have to see. I certainly want to see if Izzy has finally found her other soulmate and I definitely want to read Paris's own story, what happened to her through the missing years?, I can see this becoming an addictive series.
One girl's life journey, a story of friendship, growth, mistakes, and regrets and hopefully happily ever afters.
All books in this series are available in KU or can be snapped up for a bargain price hallelujah, let the adventure begin.

“Do you want to take me?”
That's what she said to me after she stepped out of the pool, skin dripping wet, her body on display to tempt me.
A simple babysitting job—that's all it was meant to be. Show her some element of the life she'd been kept from. But she couldn’t keep her pretty mouth shut when I showed her what she asked me for, and I couldn't keep my damned eyes off her.
Sofia Vico was the one woman no one touched. Forbidden.
I should have stayed away. Should have done as Quinn asked and kept her safe. But I crossed the line and broke the rules.
“The things I could show you.“
This started out as an act of defiance against my father—a way to finally fill in the blanks I’d lived with my whole life. But the doors to the cage I'd been kept in had suddenly been flung wide open, and I wasn’t ready for the truth waiting for me. Or for Carter Wade.
He was my saviour in the dark, muddied underworld I knew nothing of. A man with skills that both frightened and aroused me. And if I thought scars and guns were the worst I’d have to face, I was wrong. Murder, kidnapping, and a family torn in two was our consequence. Yet he still risked everything, including his life. For me.

Forbidden Eyes, A Cane Novel #4
Gripping, intense, addictive, I just could not put this book down!
Forbidden Eyes is Sofia Vico's story, the sheltered daughter of Benjamin Vico and Hope from the previous book in the series. I read the first book in this series and found it a little too dark for me and I haven't read the previous book before this and after reading about Benjamin Vico in this book, damn, I am sore torn, I really don't like Benjamin Vico at all, he's dark, cruel, he's not just an overbearing protective father, he is so much more, a criminal, and evil to the core. Sofia has no idea who her father is, she has no idea of the kind of business her father is involved in, she hasn't seen the side of him that makes men fear him until she does, until her eyes are opened, and that's a pivotal point in Sofia's life.
Sofia has been a sheltered young woman with no close friends, she studies and that's basically her life. Sofia is like a caged bird, a nineteen-year-old young woman with clipped wings.
Curiosity kills the cat as they say and after being ordered to stay home by her father when she had been looking forward to a party, she rebels, runs away and goes to stay with her uncle Quinn who is her mother's brother. Sofia wants answers, she wants to know why men fear her father, she wants to know who she is. Sofia didn't expect to find out what she does and in the process meets Carter Wade.
Carter Wade was taken in by Quinn Cane when he was a young boy, he now works for Quinn and is like his right-hand man, he runs the casino businesses and more. He's feared among men, he's alluring, sexy and dangerous.
"There aren't any rainbows here Fia. I'm not that kind of man. You want sweetheart ideals, you'll have to go look elsewhere"
Sofia never expected to fall for a man so similar to what she was running away from but she does. Carter is hot, sexy, but he is nothing like the other men in this series, he's caring and so swoon-worthy, with a dark edge to him that begins to soften when he meets Sofia.
All hell breaks loose when Benjamin Vico discovers his daughter's innocence has been ruined by Carter Wade. There is an all-out war between the families who were once allies. Wow, it was like a dark Romeo and Juliet.
A brilliantly balanced plot and a great collaboration with these two authors. I was hooked from the first pages and the whirlwind of a plot gripped me to the very end.
A Mafia romance must-read.sizzling hot, action-packed and intense.
I finished with unanswered questions, I can't wait to see what these two authors bring next, I want more sneak peeks of Sofia and Carter and I am certainly looking forward to more from Charlotte E. Hart & Rachel De Lune.
*Can be read as a standalone, leads to a hea.
"Girls like you aren't exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way."
Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for "troubled teens".
I didn't listen, and now I'm on their radar.
They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they've deemed me fit.
Too bad for them, I don't follow rules.
Too bad for me, they're determined to make sure I do.
Inconceivably attractive and treated like kings...these are the boys of Brayshaw High.
And I'm the girl who got in their way.
BOYS OF BRAYSHAW HIGH, an addictive high-school drama with lots of twists and turns
This book was similar to others I have read in this genre but also very different. Boys of Brayshaw High is about loyalty, trust, and learning to love. A bond that grows between 3 teenage boys and one girl and the sacrifices made for a family not of blood.
You are introduced in book one to how these three boys rule not just the school but the town and the girl who barges into their lives and turns everything on its head. The power three gradually becomes four.
These are four complex teenagers who have had no real adult guidance, who have grown to trust one-another in a way so no outsider can separate them. Raven Carver aka Rae, I cannot begin to sum up her character, she is hard, boyish and a tough nut who has come from a whore of a mother and put into foster care until she turns 18. Rae begins her new life at Brayshaw High which is a power struggle from day one. This is a journey for all four characters which involves mainly trust.
There is drama and angst, twists and turns, a beginning of a relationship with Rae and Maddoc aka Big man as Rae calls him and a whole lot of stuff going on that keeps you turning the pages.
I always struggle with teenagers taking on the role of adults, it comes across as unrealistic and hard to read but I was entertained and will read on in the series to see where everything goes.
This book does end on a cliffhanger and there are three books in this series.

Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.
When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.
She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.
He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.
But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?
SOMETHING SO PERFECT is the second book in the series.
If you have read the first book in the series you will know Matthew is the son of Sydney, a single mum who fell in love with Cooper Stone the hot star Hockey Player, a brilliant start to this series and I was hooked by it's hotness and drama.
This book is obviously years later, Matthew is no longer a teenager and has had his own taste of hockey player stardom which changed him from the sweet loving boy to a wild party going hockey star which then had effects on his game, leaving Matthew without a team to play for.
When he gets offered a position at a team it comes with conditions and one of them is he has to have a chaperone to keep him out of trouble. This is Matthew's big chance to make a good impression and leave his partying days behind him.
Karrie is the boss's daughter, given the task to keep an eye on Matthew. There is instant chemistry and fireworks between her and Matthew, Karrie is sassy and won't be bossed around and she is a good match for the bratty star hockey player.
I loved it, SOMETHING SO PERFECT had a good balance of hotness, drama and swoon-worthy moments. Matthew is just as protective and overbearing alpha as Cooper was, it seemed his step-father rubbed off on him.
Cooper and Sydney are also in this book along with other characters who also get their own books in this series.
I'm still hooked and looking forward to reading more in this series.
Each book can be read as a standalone, I listened to this in audio and it was brilliantly narrated, I would recommend it as either being read or listened too.

"You don't go around kissing your best friend's dad, do you?
Even though that's all you ever dream about."
Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.
Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.
On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing a huge scandal in their sleepy suburban town.
Now everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.
But Violet is going to make it right.
She’s going to find him and bring him back.
No matter how cruel and mean he is, how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.
And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…
The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually – again.
Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?
Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

Taboo, forbidden romance, age-gap romance
This review Contains spoilers
Basically this is a story of Violet who has an obsession with her next-door neighbor, not the son who she becomes friends with but the dad. Nothing wrong with that, I was happily going along with the plot at that point but future events had me cringing.
Violet was a little strange, a bit of a hermit, a young girl who was introvert and kept herself to herself by always wearing her headphones, to me this screamed mental illness, immaturity, innocence, special needs, a young girl who had no guidance in her life.
On her 18th birthday, she sneaks into the back yard of her neighbor to get some of the dead roses that Mr Edwards tends to religiously while she snoops or watches him.
She watches him, He watches her.
Both obsessed, both keep this to themselves and have done for two years.
Tonight though he has gone out, so she decides to go and get some of his dead roses to press into her diary, the diary which has contents mainly about Mr. Edwards, only he comes back early.
They kiss, they get caught by his son Brian who is also her friend and her sister who is a scheming bitch basically, so after rumors, photos all over media, they both get blacklisted by the town. Mr Edwards leaves town, sacked as the high school soccer coach and following the events Violet ends up in a psych ward.
10 months on and Violet goes to look for Mr. Edwards AKA Graham in her rehabilitation attempts to move on to just say sorry she caused so much trouble, something she hasn't been able to do with the whirlwind of events that followed "THE KISS"
I couldn't get past Violet's innocents, even after she reached 18 years of age she still spoke like a little girl, acted like a little girl, she didn't come across as mature at all and so I could not defend Graham's actions with her, the allegations of him being a perv, because basically due to Violets tenancy's and ways, her words, he did come across that way to me due to just the way Violet was, a child in an 18 year old body with a lot of maturing to do. If Violet had come across as more mature for her age I would have accepted this relationship more.
This book wasn't for me for lots of reasons
Korie Potter’s got goals. Goals that do not include following in her mother’s footsteps. Rock stars and the life of the rich and famous? Yeah… not interested. She likes her heart in one piece, thank you very much.
Until a weekend of booze and bad decisions at camp Pour Judgment finds her fake-engaged to country music’s most notorious bad boy, Rhett Taylor, and completely at his mercy.
You see, Korie Potter’s also got a dream, and her new “fiancé” just may have the connections to make it come true.
4.5 swoony stars
Oh my, I was so gone with this book once I got into it, I didn't know what to expect at first.
I wouldn't say this is a Rom-com but it certainly had some banter and light-hearted moments.
I was hooked from the first pages, Rhett who is a star county singer in a band, first meets Korie Potter when she walks in on him basically getting a blowie from a groupie after a concert, she is the cousin of his band mate and this is their first time meeting.
Korie hates singers, celebs, any male species basically who reminds her of her father who was also a singer and left her and her mother for a life of fame, booze and women.
Rhett reminds her of all the reasons why she stayed away from her cousin and his lifestyle after seeing what she walks in on after the concert.
Rhett is completely smitten, a love at first sight kind of moment happens, with Korie's sass, sarcasm and snark, he finds her refreshing from all the other women who would normally fall at his feet and he makes it his mission to prove he is nothing like her father.
Rhett is so swoon worthy, a little cocky in an adorable way and he tries so damn hard to get his girl which eventually pays off and Poor Judgment becomes a heartwarming romance with lots of sweet moment's.
I loved Korie's friend too, that girl was a hoot.
Brilliant, I loved it and highly recommend it.
No cheating, told in first person dual pov and leads to heartwarming hea.
The moment everything changed didn’t happen in that cliché rockets-red-glare kind of way, it happened in the form of a waking nightmare. I caught my husband, my high-school sweetheart, the father of my children, balls deep in a sordid affair.
That was when I gave up on men and love.
I didn’t count on the NHL’s golden boy, the beautiful, arrogant Cooper Stone turning my life and my hockey rink upside down.
My kids are why I wake up in the morning.
Hockey is what Cooper breathes for.
We’re from different worlds and places in our lives but when our hearts collided something so wrong and different turned into something so right.

I'm late to the party with this series due to it being released in 2016 but, hot damn!, it's one series I will definitely be following.
Cooper Stone is all kinds of hot, he's bossy, demanding and gets what he wants, he's the golden boy of hockey.
Sydney is a single mum who has been burned before in a relationship after she discovered her husband had been cheating on her. Sydney is an independent woman who works at the ice rink her dad owns.
Sydney and Cooper first meet when she is his rehab trainer following an injury. The fireworks go off when they first meet but not in a good way, Sydney is not the kind of woman who will take being told what to do.
There is instant chemistry between the two and it's explosive. Cooper is hot, possessive and swoon-worthy at the same time.
SOMETHING SO RIGHT is a sizzling hot read, these two are seriously magnetic to each other and I love it.
If you love bossy alpha hero's, lots of sexy times and a good plot then this is for you.
I listened to this on audio and it was brilliantly narrated so those hot scenes, damn, *fans self down
Mike Murphy is the new cop in Town.
He makes me crazy in all the right ways.
So crazy that I lose my filter around him, not to mention my ability to function like a normal person.
The attraction between us is undeniable and something we can't ignore.
But there's a secret that threatens to come between us. When we uncover more than we should, things become dangerous.
Will we be able to walk away, or will the quest to find the truth be too tempting?
Not what I expected at all, not from the blurb, not from the cover, I was surprised.
The main characters meet fairly early on in the book and there's instant chemistry.
Sydney is moving back to her childhood town of Salem following her Grandfathers death and intends on taking over his practice as a vet. On her first night home Sydney meets Mike who is the town cop. Mike is keeping an eye out on her Grandfathers place while it's empty.
There's a rom-com feel at this point in the story and I loved how it was going, Sydney had no mouth filter when nervous and she was all kinds of all over the place whenever Mike was around, she was funny and Mike is all kinds of swoon.
The two become an item quite quickly and after receiving a note and a coin from her Grandfather in his will which is mysterious and like a historic treasure hunt of sorts they both begin a journey together.
This story was quite unique and anyone who loves a mysterious kind of plot would love this book, it had a lot of interesting content and exciting moments, a trail of hidden secret messages and clues that Sydney and Mike follow, however, it wasn't for me, I was bored and I kept losing interest.
There are hot moments, funny moments which I loved but the whole Nancy Drew or Agatha Christy thing it had going on isn't my kind of thing. Three days it took me to read it and I'm the sort of reader who gobbles a book up in one sitting normally.
Not for me but it doesn't mean it's not for you.

There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous—local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself.
Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.
Beauty and the Mustache is book #4 in the Knitting in the City series, and book #0.5 in the Winston Brothers series. Each book is a standalone, full length (110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the misadventures and exploits of seven friends in Chicago, all members of the same knitting group.

Drew is poetry in motion
THIS BOOK IS BLOODY AWESOME. Penny Reid's words sometimes blow me away.
I laughed hard, felt the sad times and swooned so much from Drew's words.
I was immediately hooked on this book, I was laughing from the first chapter and had plenty of giggles throughout. Beauty and the Mustache is a brilliantly balanced heartwarming story with humor in the mix.
The rabid raccoon scene, oh boy, days, weeks on now after listening to that scene and I still laugh at it, I think I told everyone at work about that part which had them laughing too.
I listened to this on audio and boy did the narrator make this feel real, the southern drawl and the characters, she really did them justice, at times it was like I was right there with the characters.
This book can be read as a standalone, has a perfect balance of humor and emotion. I loved it and would definitely read or listen more, especially the Winston brothers I love them already and have only had snippets of them. I feel like I am late to the party with this series and have so much to catch up on, and I want to devour the Winston brothers.
Every woman deserves a Drew in their lives, he's a new BBF of my shelf for sure.
