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.

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.
