Darcy and Eli: Desire (Book 2)
He chuckled and perched himself on the side of the bed. âOne of these days, Miss Darcy . . .â
âOne of these days what?â
âOne of these days I might be able to unlock the vault to all your secrets.â
âMy vault has a complicated combination. I donât think anyone really wants to dive in there. Itâs kind of dark.â
He gazed into my eyes. âIâm not afraid of the dark.â
His intense stare burned through me like a lit match to tissue paper. My skin pebbled in goosebumps as I exhaled. âWhy . . . why, do you always look at me like that?â
Eliâs hand caressed my cheek. âBecause, when I look into your eyes I feel like I can almost see your story. And I want to read every word.â
I write kinky romance. I love the art of play, in life and with words.
Iâm an actress, turned fitness instructor, turned author of naughty shenanigans. Iâve told stories and entertained people my entire life. Writing is my favorite because I donât have to leave the house or put on pants. Plus, the voices in my head always do what I say, for the most part. LOL!
I live in Las Vegas with my husband, Bill and our adopted pooches, Harley and Brownie. I still teach cycling classes. It keeps me sane-ish.
Welcome to my world.
In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.
Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.
But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?
For the sake of my children and my pride, I packed up and headed for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.
Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.
Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.
But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—I haven’t felt that way in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.
But deep down, I’m terrified.
Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?
I always finish these books with a smile.
Sylvia and Henry's story is one of second chances, moving on, starting again and finding true love.
Both Henry and Sylvia have failed marriages, both fairly recent.
When Sylvia moves back home to Cloverleigh to her parents home, she's still trying to keep it together for her kids and herself, picking herself up after discovering her husband of 15 years was not only a cheat but he's now going to be a father with his younger girlfriend hit her hard.
Henry's marriage was one that grew apart after failed IVF treatments had took it's toll on the marriage and relationship, Henry's wife left, leaving Henry disappointed and hurt after he had tried his best to make her happy but they had drifted apart.
Henry is the wine maker at Cloverleigh farm working for Sylvias parents.
Sylvia and Henry know each other but have never really got to know each other well but when they meet again once Sylvia has moved home there is an instant bond between them.
The chemistry between these two characters is hot and although they try to slow things down due to their recent relationship breakdowns, the attraction, the bond, the chemistry is hard to fight.
Sylvia and Henry have a beautiful supportive friendship that grows into more.
You could say Henry and Sylvia are soul mates who have finally found one another but had to go through other experiences until it was time for each of their stars to align.
A beautiful heartwarming story.

Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely...
McKenzie “Kenzie” Lane is newly graduated from college and looking forward to a dream internship she has lined up for the summer in LA. Unfortunately, her controlling mother has other plans.
Colby Singer, with his hot-as-sin looks and wicked charm, is never without attention from the ladies. Despite suspecting how Kenzie feels about him, he’s always kept her comfortably off-limits since she’s the baby sister of one of his best friends. But when he’s determined to distract her temporarily from the stress of her mother’s ultimatum, deciding to show her some fun, he quickly finds that keeping her in the friend zone is not as easy as he’d hoped.
Once Kenzie realizes this may be her last opportunity to gauge her long-time crush’s true feelings, she puts it all out there in the form of a bet. It's the perfect idea for her perfect man.
Until he isn’t.
Will a dose of reality lead to true love? Or will it crash and burn before it can even get started?
***Bet Me Something is for mature audiences due to steamy bedroom scenes that are in no way contained to just the bedroom.***
Full Length Standalone book with no cliffhanger. Third book of the “Something Series”
A BRILLIANT & SIZZLING FRIENDS TO LOVERS STORY.
My second book in this series by Aubrey Bondurant and although after reading the first book I knew this series would be addictive I jumped straight to book 3 instead of book 2. Something about Colby pulled me towards this book rather than Brian and Sasha's story but I will certainly read their story too as there are no spoilers in this book even though Brian is Kenzie's brother and is in her story a few times with Sasha.
Colby is the brother of Josh from the first book in the series, he's a hot bachelor with a playboy past and reputation.
Kenzie has always had a crush on Colby she even moved out to LA to attend school were Colby now lives and works continuing their close friendship that was definitely a big factor in her choice of school. Now Kenzie has finished school it's time for decisions, move home to finish college like her mother is demanding she does or stay in LA. Kenzie is still at a place in her life were she is deciding what she wants to do with her future.
I loved Kenzie and Colby's story. Colby and Kenzie grew up together, lived next door to each other and their older brothers Brian and Josh were and still are best friends. Brian, Colby, Josh and Mark are all a close group of friends and as the group grows and there are additions of women in their lives, the women also grow friendships too, making this a great interconnected series.
This is the kind of friends to lovers story were the hero is definitely in denial, especially with Colby also being a friend of Brian's and Kenzie being his little sister but the pull is strong and the more time Colby and Kenzie spend together especially following Kenzie's time in hospital and needing to move in with someone, the attraction becomes impossible to ignore.
I loved Kenzie and Colby's relationship, they are fun, flirty, hot and dirty, they're a perfect match and I thoroughly enjoyed their journey to more, to building up the courage to telling the rest of their group and to the perfect hea.
I can't wait to read Catherine's story, she is a character who came into the story in book one following her divorce. was having a tough time and she has remained friends with them all since. Like I said earlier this series is addictive, the authors writing easy to follow with great word and plot building and I am looking forward to more.
Eva and Rafe's story continues in this emotional, angsty, rockstar romance from the bestselling author of The Rixon Raiders series
Eighteen-year-old Eva Walker knew going on tour with Black Hearts Still Beat would be complicated.
She didn’t expect to find herself torn between two brothers.
One wants her but he walked away before.
The other needs her but she doesn’t understand why.
It’s only time before the truth comes out, and when it does, nothing will be the same for Country’s newest sweetheart and the black-hearted boys of Rock.
Rise: The Interlude is the second installment of Eva and Rafe's story. The concluding book Rule: The Finale is coming soon!
After reading the Prelude novel Rush, I could not wait for more of Rafe and Eva's story.
L.A Cotton is an exceptional writer and although I don't normally give a book five stars without reading the conclusion to the story, this was well deserved. I was hooked, engrossed, I absolutely loved the characters and the ups and downs within the story, I was turning the pages eagerly.
The sweetheart of Country is about to show the bad boys of Rock, it only takes a single beat for everything to change.
Rise finishes on a cliffhanger. Told in first person dual pov. A recommended read for rock-star romance lovers, second chance romance lovers, or basically anyone who loves to be held captive by a good story, RUSH needs to be read first.
Eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this story.

He was my boss. I was his assistant. It was only supposed to be a temporary office romance. Until he changed the rules...
Haylee Holloway has experienced more grief than a twenty-two year old should have to endure. When she moves to LA for a fresh start and takes a job as an assistant for an advertising company the last thing she expects is to have to step in as the model during a photo shoot. Especially with a multi-million dollar campaign hanging in the balance.
Josh Singer, the owner of Gamble Advertising is private, intense, and hard to read. But when he shows up to take charge of the debacle, he's surprised to be drawn to the nervous woman filling in. Once he learns of Haylee’s goal to save money for law school, he makes her a short-term offer she can’t refuse:
Move to New York City and work for him directly as his assistant.
As things heat up between them, blurring both their professional and personal lives, can they keep things temporary as planned or will they both realize some things aren't meant to end?

My first book by Audrey Bonurant, I was completely addicted and could not put this book down.
“I think you may be the yang to my yin,” Josh said on a whisper.
This was so much more than an office romance.
Haylee begins her day in her recently new job as an assistant for an advertising agency but when the model fails to turn up and they are left without a model, the owner of the company requests Haylee stand in, he then snaps her up to be his own assistant while his own assistant is on leave.
The chemistry between Haylee and Josh was hot!!
Both of these characters have backstories that have given them issues, trust issues, abandonment issues and as their relationship progresses from casual and starts to become more intense there is also a push and pull that will have you frustrated with the characters, especially Josh who wants to keep his relationship with Haylee private and still goes on dates with other women to keep up his image.
I loved the roller-coaster of it all, I was completely held captive by this story, I even had a goofy smile on my face at times, I loved it and cannot wait to read more books by this author who balanced the plot out brilliantly, making this an addictive read from start to finish.
The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory.
I don’t believe that.
Not when we’ve lost almost everything
I married Winter knowing what I was walking into.
He married me knowing the same.
We started out full of hope.
Love, family, the club.
We would have it all.
We would do whatever it took to build our family.
We would stand together through everything.
But how does a couple do that when they’ve been ravaged by loss?
We’re about to find out, because the biggest battles we’ve ever faced are breathing down on us and if we don’t cling to each other, we may lose the one thing we swore we never would.
We may lose us.

5, "I will always choose you stars"
BATTLE HEARTS is Book 3 in this series, there is also a short Christmas novella making it 4 books so far in the series.
BATTLE HEARTS is a continuation of Winter and Birdie's story from book 1, Married life, the battles, the heartbreak, the continuation of their love for one another.
This is one couple who went to war, battled with their hearts and came out the other side shouting victory.
Winter and Birdie's story absolutely moved me. A heartwarming and heartbreaking journey.
Two people desperately in love and desperate to share their love with a child. The ups and downs of IVF, Birdie and Winter's journey is real, its raw, the feelings of hurt and failure after each IVF treatment fails is tangible, my heart went out to the both of them.
In the mix of all Birdie and Winters problems, the club is under attack from an unknown source and Winter along with King are on the hunt, theirs bloodshed and grief.
BATTLE HEARTS WILL really pull you in all directions.
A whole mixture of emotions are evoked throughout BATTLE HEARTS, excitement, sadness, joy, fear, pity. Winter and Birdie are my favourite couple, a true example of staying together through thick or thin, highs and lows, through ice and fire, they survive it all. I am looking forward to the epilogue being released Valentines day and pray that it a huge and ginormous happy to their already happy ever after.
BATTLE HEARTS IS ONE HELL OF A JOURNEY, brilliantly written and perfectly balanced out by Nina Levine. I am so excited for whatever Nina Levine writes next. A brilliant series and highly recommended.
Told In first person dual pov. Can be read as a stand alone but should be read in series order, book one in this series HURRICANE HEARTS is the start of the Storm MC journey and when Birdie and Winter first get together as a couple, the beginning of their story.
I built myself up from nothing. A product of the foster care system, I learned early on how to fight hard to get what I want. Whether it was starting my first company in college, earning my first billion, or buying my first professional sports team, I know how to get what I want, when I want it.
Willow Monahan is fierce, independent, and hot as hell. She also takes great pleasure in shutting down my advances. The younger sister of one of my star players, Willow intrigues me to my very core. And while she may have willingly given me her body, she is hesitant to offer up more. Now I’m on a mission to find out why.
I’ve decided to approach my desire for Willow like I’ve approached much of my life; with persistence, determination,
and a whole lot of that Dominik Carlson alpha charm. Buying a hockey expansion team, building the Arizona Vengeance from the ground up, and bringing home a championship may prove to be an easier feat than winning Willow’s heart.
But I’ve never been a quitter.
Willow Monahan… I’m coming for you.

Hot Billionaire with a heart of gold who could turn down that? Well, one woman did more than once..
I couldn't wait for Dominik and Dax's sisters story. Dominik is the owner of Arizona Vengeance hockey team so he has popped up in the plot a time or two throughout the series. I have read most of the previous books and you could see that Dominik, although a serial dater definitely had his sights set on Willow being his next conquest.
There's a role reversal in this book, Willow isn't the kind of person who wants to settle down, she travels the world putting herself in dangerous situations as a journalist and gets her sexual kicks from one night stands, so she caves at Dominik's advances for a night together meaning for it to only be one night and end his endless pursuit but Dominik after one taste, wants more.
Dominik and Willow are hot!
Both of these characters are fiery and sexual, I loved the progression of them becoming more than just "sex" giving into their hangups and doubts.
A great addition to the series, Dominik was more than I had hoped for despite me wanting to slap him up the head at one point in the story.
A great series, I can't recommend it enough and these guys are a unit with a family bond, not just a team, love them.
Sawyer Bennett writes brilliantly, there's always something more pulling you forward keeping you turning the pages, I love a roller-coaster ride read and she never disappoints.
DOMINIK can be read as a standalone but starting the first in the series is recommended to avoid little spoilers of who is with whom and how they get there as some scenes do include characters from the other books. Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea

Semi Finalist: Goodreads Choice Awards, Best Romance 2017
All is fair in love and auto maintenance.
Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.
Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.
Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.
She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words. Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.
The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

I am absolutely loving this series in audio, its like seven brides for seven brothers, one of my favourite musical movies from when I was younger.
Each brother is unique in their own way and I couldn't wait to read Beau and Shelley's story.
Beau is the charmer, the pleaser, he's the kind of person who will do anything for anyone, he's the complete opposite of his twin Dwayne.
Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually, until Shelly Sullivan begins working at the garage and the woman's straight talking and rudeness gets his back up.
Shelly is a brilliant mechanic, yes, she's rude (according to Beau), she doesn't shake people's hand in greeting, she's and odd ball but you only see the Shelly on the surface and getting to know her quirks and the revelation of her OCD that controls her was intriguing.
I couldn't think of a more perfect and patient guy for Shelly than Beau Winston.
Shelly's character is the most interesting of the women I've met in this series so far, although all have had their own little quirks I found Shelly the most interesting, although I don't know where her OCD stemmed from and Beau, *sighs, he's so dreamy and swoon-worthy and he became one of my favourite of the Winston brothers but each book I finish I say that, you just can't pick one as a favourite in this series and well, i'm still not finished with the series and can't wait to read more from these hot bearded brothers.
Each book can be read as a standalone, but there are progressions or circumstances that run in order such as Dwayne leaving to go on his travels, you see the preparation of that in this book, Sienna and Jethro's wedding the build up to that and then there's Billies longing looks at Claire, I can't wait to read their story, so I would say this series is better read in order and I highly recommend the audio version, its brilliant!!.
A heartwarming romance with humour and Witt and can I just say * fans self down, the car scene was hot!!
A note, a pair of panties and a date.
When Quinn’s efforts to set up her best friend go awry, she finds herself with a crazy blind date. Could the mystery man be her soul mate? Nothing like an adventure, and at the very least, she was going to have some fun with it.

Hot sexy firefighter alert! Hose me down
Fabulous read by T. Gephart.
Riley is all kinds of sexy and swoon-worthy and Quinn is sassy and full of confidence, two brilliant characters and I absolutely loved their story. .
When Quinn sends her best friends crush a pair of panties in the post along with a note to meet up as a way of pushing her friend Karli into making a move, she realises following her confession to Karli that it went to the wrong address but curiously gets the best of them and they go to see if someone actually turns at the coffee shop excepting the invite.
Send me crazy has many funny moments that will make you chuckle, it was a brilliantly balanced story with heartwarming, hot and serious moments, everything I love in a contemporary romance.

QUINN- Hey Babe-a-licious, I’m back! Also, don’t hate me. But I sent Brad a package guaranteeing he’d meet you for a date! I know, I know none of my business . . . but seriously, he needed a push and it was easier to do while I was out of the country. You can yell at me for it later. Clearly, you’re no longer mad. #Winning.
KARLI - Quinn! Girlfriend, I’ve missed you. Um . . . what package and note? I’m not meeting Brad for a date, what are you talking about?
QUINN- Maybe he didn’t get it yet? How long does USPS take to send a red racy G-string? I included coordinates for Beans or Bust. You’re welcome.
KARLI - I’m going to kill you! Where did you send it?
QUINN - Ummmm to his apartment, sweet cheeks…where else? 264 Hudson
KARLI - QUINN! He’s 246 not 264!!! Hopefully whoever got it returned it to sender.
QUINN- Well, then. No return details included and addressed it to Hot Stuff—in keeping with the theme. This just got a whole lot more interesting. Feel like an adventure? ;-)
KARLI - Lord, I already know I’m going to regret this.
A couple of drinks.
A random stranger.
It was only supposed to be one night.
Turns out, the stranger is Julian Reyes.
And my brother-in-law’s new business partner.
Chairman of Trinity Academy.
Where I’ve just enrolled as a student.
Who also happens to be ridiculously hot.
Whenever we meet, it doesn’t help I’m reminded of how amazing his hands felt on my body.
Yeah, definitely not how I imagined my first year of college.

Julian is a hottie and is now one of my favorite characters by Michelle heard in this series.
Jamie Truman Student and sister of Della from Heartless the enemies to Lovers series, she is also the sister in law of Carter Hayes business partner of eligible bachelor Julian Reyes. Series's are interlinked but can be read as a standalone.
A one night stand that was just meant to be that, one night, until Jamie discovers her one night stand with a stranger before she starts college isn't a stranger at all when they have no choice but to mix in the same circles when she discovers Julian is Chairman of the academy and now in business with her brother in law.
I was looking forward to Julian's story and although his story can be read as a standalone you are made aware of Julian in the first book FALCON which is his brother Falcon's story, where we find out that Julian was engaged but sadly through a car crash she died in a car accident just weeks before their wedding, this is reiterated in Falcon's book but does not go into details.
I liked both of these characters JULIAN is a businessman and Ceo but he also has a vulnerable side to him and Jamie although she is only 19 she's a young woman with backbone who has lost both her parents, helped bring up her sister's child and is mature for her age.
When Jamie and Julian discover they move in the same circles Julian is annoyed that he did not know who she was and that he was not aware she was only 19 so the A-hole comes out in him and the two try to avoid each other but with weekly Sunday dinners set up by the group, it's impossible.
The chemistry between the two is tangible and when Jamie becomes the victim of stalking and things begin to happen to her Julian comes to the rescue.
Julian and Jamie were a perfect match, I loved this story which had plenty going on to keep you turning the pages, hotness, action, friendships, and humor, the writing was brilliant and I couldn't put it down.
Looking forward to whatever Michelle heard writes next.
DARE ME Dare Duet, Part Two: Billie and Sawyer(Unchained Attraction #2) by K.L. Shandwick: REVIEW & BUY LINKSRead Now
When Sawyer Wild dared a stranger to ask him to kiss her, he had no idea that kiss would leave its mark.
With her estranged husband looking on, a normally shy Billie Collier, the gorgeous older, soon-to-be divorcee, shocked herself and complied.
Leaving the wine bar alone, Sawyer felt they had unfinished businesswhen the memory of their all-to-brief, blistering chemistry had left him with an ache he'd been unable to shake.
Ten months later, an second chance to know Billie unexpectedly fell into his hands and he grabbed it.
Love, be it a slow burn or hard and fast, usually happens when it is least expected. Sawyer accepted love is love and was confident he could smooth most of the bumps on the road, afterall the path to true love never runs smooth. However, in Billie's case accepting that she was enough took a little longer to achieve.
"Love hurts, no-one lives without it leaving a scar, when you open your heart you invite pain"
DARE ME is the second part of Billie and Sawyers's journey, told in Sawyers pov, so from a male point of view.
When I finished DARE YOU, I was nervous, I felt this book finished were most books normally would, Sawyer and Billie were together and I honestly didn't know what the second part of their story would contain other than to tie up loose ends.
Sawyer melted me to a puddle of goo yet again with his words, his maturity and his love for Billie.
I thought he was too good to be true in book one, I could only think of the word dreamboat to accurately describe a guy like Sawyer when I first met him in Dare you but this younger man who fell hard for an older woman just melted me to an, even more, bigger puddle in DARE ME and I kept waiting for the drama, the angst, for my hopes I had built in him to shatter especially when he went on tour with his band but they didn't, not once.
I've been trying sum up DARE YOU and ask, have you ever finished a book, loved the characters and not wanted to let go yet? Well, DARE YOU takes you on the next leg of Billie and Sawyers journey and I suppose the best way to describe it is "LIFE and LOVE", finding your feet in a new relationship, learning to talk through issues together, learning to trust one another and embracing life together as a couple and then as a family.
A heartwarming and realistic journey of two people's trials in life and love and how they grow as a partnership and a couple.
Love is a battlefield for a quirky matchmaker and the cocky football star who hires her to find him a wife.
As the owner of Perfect Pairings matchmaking service, Maddie McRae earns her living helping others fall in love. And one thing the sweet Southern belle knows for sure is that the foundation of wedded bliss is built on similarities: opposites might attract, but they don’t stay together.
Enter Mason Spark.
Rude, arrogant, and notoriously allergic to monogamy, the hottest quarterback in the NFL is Maddie’s polar opposite. He’s also her new client. Her gorgeous, infuriating new client who’s paying her an outrageous sum of money to find him a wife. With his multi-million dollar contract on the line due to his behavior on and off the field, bad boy Mason is willing to pretend to settle down.
But when he starts to fall for the adorkable matchmaker who can’t stand him, the playboy finds himself in the game of his life to keep something he never thought he’d lose—his heart.

A wonderful and funny rom-com with some interesting, quirky and lovable characters
Maddie and Mason's story will have you laughing out loud from start to finish. I loved it and the characters.
Maddie runs a dating agency, she loves all things pink, she's quirky, prim and proper has a bat shit crazy Aunt and is a firm believer that love conquers all.
Mason is a high profile ballplayer with a bad rep, he's a grouch, he's moody, rude and insufferable.
When Mason's agent suggests he finds a wife to clean up his image they end up at Maddie's agency to help him find a wife.
Maddie as appalled at the fact she has been asked to find him a wife for his image and not for love but she does agree to coach him and help change his attitude in the hope some woman out there won't run for the hills as soon as he opens his mouth.
They butt heads from start to finish, it was great, a slow burn but well worth it in the end.
A recommended romantic comedy, I will definitely be reading more like this from this author, I was engaged from start to finish and loved the writing style.
Told in first person dual pov. The feel of the story reminded me of The Wall of Winnipeg and me by another author so if you loved that give this one a go you won't regret it.
From the NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, & USA TODAY bestselling series
Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!
Identical twins Beau and Duane Winston might share the same devastatingly handsome face, but where Beau is outgoing and sociable, Duane is broody and reserved. This is why Jessica James, recent college graduate and perpetual level-headed good girl, has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life.
His friendly smiles make her tongue-tied and weak-kneed, and she’s never been able to move beyond her childhood crush. Whereas Duane and Jessica have always been adversaries. She can’t stand him, and she’s pretty sure he can’t stand the sight of her…
But after a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. Jessica James has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane’s disdain; therefore she’s unprepared for the reality that is Duane’s insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks. Not helping Jessica’s muddled mind and good girl sensibilities, Duane seems to have gotten himself in trouble with the local biker gang, the Iron Order.
Certainly, Beau’s magic spell is broken. Yet when Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, now more dangerous than ever, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?
This series is amazing, I am totally addicted. I listened to Beard Science first and just had to start this series from the beginning, I fell in love with the Winston brothers.
Duane and Jessica's story is childhood to adult love story. I swooned, laughed and enjoyed the ride through the ups and downs all the way to the hfn and I cannot wait to get more glimpses of Duane and Jessica in other stories as they prepare to take their relationship to another level.
There are 6 brothers and one sister in this series and each brother has his own unique character, Cletus in book 3, I discovered was a complex and lovable puzzle, Duane had the potential to be a hothead, he's a risk-taker, an adrenaline junkie but also a man with few yet deep and meaningful words, I cannot wait to discover more of these Winston men and the woman who steel their hillbilly hearts.
Brilliantly narrated, I would definitely listen to more in this series via audio.
Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday. But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble.
Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge.
Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom.
And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.
The love story is new, the suspense and mystery continues..
Riven Knight, is book 2 in the Tin Gypsy series, If you have read the first book Gypsy King then I am sure you are also anxiously waiting to know what the story is behind the secretive ex-con mechanic Isiah and his relationship with Genevieve who has recently come discovered who her father is following her mothers death.
The mystery and suspense continues following Amina's death. Amina is Genevieve's mother and also the woman Draven ex-president of the Tin Gypsy's, Dash's father and Genevieve's father had a one night stand with and after he left she was later murdered but the police are pointing the finger at Draven. The ex Gypsy members, Isaiah and Genevieve, the lawyer, all are getting involved to try and discover who the killer was, looking for clues as the trial draws closer for Draven who is the biggest suspect.
There are so many twists and turns, layers, and layers to this story and so much suspense, I loved it! and the relationship between Genevieve and Isiah was nail-biting, such a slow burner, I was so eager for them to make it work.
A total roller-coaster of a ride, a definite series to follow and so different to most MC romance reads I have read.
This isn't your typical MC, the Tin Gypsy MC is out of business, the loyal members continue to work at the garage but just because there is no club business or club anymore doesn't mean it lacks angst, danger, and on the edge stuff. I cannot wait for the next book in the series, I'm addicted.
TOLD IN FIRST PERSON POV. LEADS TO HFN. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND READING AS A STANDALONE

What would you do if a stranger deliberately kissed you?
What if that stranger was younger, hotter than hell and your husband had already traded you in for a much younger model?
Now what if his smoking hot kiss served as the ultimate payback for you being wronged... would you welcome it then?
Seeking sanctuary from a rainstorm inside a wine bar alone Billie Collier’s haven quickly became her hell when of all the places in New York City her soon-to-be ex-husband was also already in there, with his tall pretty homewrecker.
When another rain-soaked refugee swept inside dressed in a high dollar suit he does so with fear in his eyes. Drenched, Sawyer Wild breathed raggedly as he shrugged himself out of his jacket and quickly planted himself in the last empty chair in the wine bar—the one directly across from Billie.
Forced together by circumstance she seeks solace in Sawyer’s flirty banter which strokes her neglected ego,
and as time passes and wine loosens her tongue she confesses Logan’s presence and her current humiliation.
Although relative strangers, he quickly relates to Billie's desperate need to save face and with her curious husband approaching can Billie find her courage to trust and dare Sawyer when he offers her a chance to get even.
DARE ME, book two of the Dare Duet is live.
you can read both books in the series now.
Can I say dreamboat in this century? because that's the only word that comes to mind when I think of Sawyer.
Sawyer came to Billie's rescue in a crowded restaurant when her cheating husband was there with his new 10 years younger shiny toy and he pretended to be her new, also younger model, he then spotted her months later in a crowded bar while he was up on stage with his guitar and sang to her, sawyer was just dreamy with his words and persistent in his chase following their second fate meeting despite Billie having huge hangups about her being an older single mum and let me tell you, I wanted to shake her myself more than once, thank goodness for her best friend who talked some sense into her and for Sawyer's persistence and patience, because I was running out of it with her.
I loved this story, a story about love with no age barrier, restoration of confidence after a knockdown and a story of life's second chances, I could not turn the pages fast enough. The balance within the story containing drama, angst, and hotness was perfect and I did not for one moment get bored or antsy with the plot itself.
A definite recommended older woman younger man romance with twists and turns along the way.
I've given this review 4.5 stars because, honestly, I felt I reached my happy with their story and I'm a little scared now for more, I'm quite sure there will be angst, drama and issues with the exes as well as family matters following their happy for now ending and I don't think we know all there is to know about Sawyer either yet, so although scared for what is to come that may burst the happy bubble I have now, I will definitely be in the Que anticipating the release of the next book in this duet told in Sawyers pov.
A realistic page turner of a book.

FINISHED TOO SOON!
A filthy biker from New York. Shelby’s a sassy waitress from Texas.
I loved swagger and Sass so much I cannot wait until Rooster and Shelby's full story is released.
Swagger and Sass is a short Novella giving you an insight on how Rooster who the VP and member of the Lost Kings MC and Shelby who is a waitress and country singer meet.
I love the idea of this book, hot bossy biker meets sweet southern country singer, I cannot wait to see where this will go, I am already anticipating a bumpy ride and roller-coaster of emotions in their story. I love Rooster, he definitely had all the swagger but I couldn't really call Shelby sassy, she wasn't outspoken enough or ballsy enough for me to call her that but she was a likeable character.
A total tease of a book, I will be looking out for the next one.
I am a world-class thief. Or I was, before I got pinched and landed in prison. After I served my time, I decided to get on the right side of the law, or as much as my job at Jameson Force Security allows. The lines sometimes blur, which suits me just fine. My name might be Saint, but I’m a devil to most.
My plan to go legitimate is going as anticipated, until my past and present collide in a big way. While in Paris preparing to take down a ring of highly specialized thieves, I come face-to-face with my biggest threat—and my most dangerous temptation.
Sindaria “Sin” Westin was the love of my life, until her betrayal landed me behind bars. Now I’ve got to find a way to trust her again, at least long enough to pull off this job. When it becomes clear the price for this heist will be our lives, I realize I need to do whatever it takes to keep Sin safe, even if it means trading my life for hers. Because no matter the lies I’ve told myself, Sin’s greatest theft was the day she stole my heart

Master thieves sin and saint, a perfect match
CODE NAME HEIST is the third book in the Jameson security series.
After serving time in prison for theft Saint Belliner joins the team at Jameson security with the intention of going straight. When a job comes in to go undercover and and get on the team that has a huge heist coming up Saint is the man for the job with his skills and ability and his reputation in the field, obviously his new crime boss who has his own private and secret collection of stolen paintings, jewels etc isn't aware of Saints intention of taking him down but he then finds himself in a huge compromising position when he meets his team members for the job and is faced with the woman he once loved and the woman who betrayed him and got him sent to prison, Sindaria Weston .
Sindaria Weston AKA Sin has always known the life of crime and was taught first by her father who is also a master thief, she is skilled and talented and can crack any lock.
Saint and Sin have both pretty much been thieves their whole lives, starting off with small thefts when younger and progressing to more high end heist, going from one job to another and from one thrill to another.
Sin and Saint fell in love while doing a job, being on the same team and they had plans and dreams to one day go straight and have normal lives until the end of a job came and Saint gets caught and goes to prison.
This isn't a happy reunion for Saint but Sin had her reasons for doing what she did all those years ago and the two gradually and eventually pick up where they left off while also focusing on the job at hand while Sin also doesn't know that Saint has now gone straight, and is undercover.
The story held my interest and kept me turning the pages, It was a good story, it reminded me of a few films I have watched, Entrapment being one starring Catherine Zeta Jones. I liked it, but it lacked the angst, hotness,danger and excitement, I normally like in an action type of book like this but I did enjoy it, it was a steady paced read, .
I am looking forward to the next book in the series and was disappointed that I didn't feel the same connection to the team in this book as with previous books, it lost the Jameson family feel so I will have to get my fix in the next book as things are also happening behind the scenes in the Jameson team too somethings that were happening in the background separate from Sin and Saints story which i'm sure will be revealed in the next book.
CODE NAME HEIST is a good second chance romance with suspense and action. Told in first person dual pov leading to a hea, can be read as a standalone.

Jennifer is officially desperate.
And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.
Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So... what’s a maniacal mastermind to do?
Likely, the last thing you expect.

Beard Science gave me so many goofy smiles.
I loved this book, the narration was brilliant and I can't wait to read or listen to more books in this series. I love the Winston brothers.
Cletus is a complex man, not many people saw the real Cletus but there is more to Jennifer Sylvester, the town's and world-famous banana cake queen than people see too and she sees Cletus, the real Cletus.
A bit about the plot;
All Jennifer wants to do is settle down with a man, have kids and live the dream. Jennifer runs the bakery and is controlled by her mother who puts her out there on social media as the banana cake queen, Jennifer has millions of followers and her mother expects a certain image and the right sort of man for Jennifer to settle down with and one that won't change her or her image.
When Jennifer is video interviewing the sheriff at the station regarding her cakes she notices Cletus who is there to repair something hiding some evidence and catches it on camera, she then uses this evidence to blackmail him into teaching her how to date and get a man, Jennifer is a sheltered young woman who was even homeschooled by her mother so she hasn't experienced high-school, dates or a boyfriend.
What a build-up, what a perfect match, I loved the journey to how they fell in love with each other, I loved both of these quirky characters, I laughed so many times. Brilliant!
He was the bad boy of rock-n-roll; cocky, short-tempered, and the sexiest man I’d ever seen. I was just a librarian in a small town. He had no clue who I was, but I knew everything about him. After all, he was the reason I moved across the country.
I never thought he’d know my name, let alone whisper it while he held me tight and made me forget about the agony of my past. He was my protector, my reason, my calm before the storm… but nothing good lasts forever, and Gabriel Hunter was no exception.

Brilliant! I absolutely adored Gabe and Cady's story.
Hot rock god falls for shy librarian.
I loved it, Cady's father was also a rock legend before he died, the backstory of Cady is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Cady is a young woman who has had more than enough tragedy in her life with no family left following the death of her father she is put into the care of her creepy step-brother. Cady remembers Gabriel from when she lived at home with her father and in an attempt to flee her step-brother he is the first person who comes into her mind when she thinks of a home and safety, she feels a connection to him somehow due to her father once being his mentor and so she moves to the same city.
Cady and Gabes story is one of fate. Gabe is absolutely swoon-worthy with Cady, he falls hard and its definitely love at first sight for him. Gabe knows she is nothing like the groupies he has used for years and treats her with respect and with care * swoons again
Of course, there is added drama and angst and the author did a brilliant job of balancing the whole thing out as well as the occasional scorching hot scenes. I cannot wait for the next book, I could not turn the pages fast enough.
A definite recommended Rock star romance read. Told in first person dual pov and leads to an abrupt hea but I am hoping to see more of these two in the next book. Gabrielle can be read as a standalone but is the 2nd book in a series, there are no spoilers to the previous book.

SOMEDAY, SOMEDAY, a beautiful and bitter-sweet love story
I was attracted by the cover at first, I have read Emma Scott before and love her work and well, I just dove in. Did I know it was MM? did I read the blur properly? NO, and just so you know it isn't my usual genre to read either but I was so moved and so glad I read it.
Silas and Max first meet at an AA meeting and although Silas is sat at the back listening to Max's story of how he ended up an addict, how he was thrown out of his own by his own father for being gay, Silas leaves before anyone can talk to him or introduce themselves to him, hes the dark visiting stranger at the back of the room but even then Max felt drawn to him.
They meet again formerly when Max who is a nurse starts work along with other teams of nurses for Silas's father who runs a multi billion pharmaceutical company.
Silas's Back story and the relationship with his homophobic father is heartbreaking, they both have similar history with their parents and its no surprise that they have an instant connection and a bond like no other.
There is so much content in this book and it truly is a moving story, a story of addiction, heartache, forgiveness, healing, finding real love and I loved the other characters, Silas's brother with Asperger's, Silas's pretend fiance and Max's best friend.
Max and Silas were both victims for being just who they were meant to be and it was a heartbreaking yet beautiful journey to discovery for both of these inspirational characters.
