PIECES OF ME – A Shiloh Walker Cover Reveal


Title: Pieces of Me
Author: Shiloh Walker | @shilohwalker
Genre: Romantic Thriller

Nobody knows that better than Shadow Harper. It seemed like a
dream come true when a rich, suave older man noticed her during her second year
of college. Stefan Stockman seemed to love her obsessively. He came into her
life and swept her off her feet, seduced her, married her…and then slowly,
eventually, that dream come true became a living nightmare.

Now, three years after she finally escaped him, she’s trying to
put her life back together. Haunted by memories, struggling with post-traumatic
stress, she spends most of her time locked away in her home on Pawley’s Island,
a small town on the South Carolina coast. Her rare moments of joy come from her
trips to the nearby beach.

She compulsively checks the locks on her doors, makes sure she has
her cell phones—five of them—and if she misses something on her schedule, it
throws her into a panic.

When she accidentally leaves a sketchbook on the beach, an anxiety
attack seems imminent. Her art has become her salvation, her sanity, and losing
even one sketch is like losing a piece of her soul. When she returns to hunt
for the sketchbook, already fearing it’s gone for good, she’s surprised to find
it still sitting there, saved by a sexy fellow beach lover— the mysterious
Dillian Jenkins.

He’s brash, bold, brutally handsome…and gentle. He’s the exact
opposite of the man who’d tormented her for years, and Shadow finds herself
slowly, almost reluctantly, falling for him. Even obsessing over him.

When her ex-husband once again intrudes on the happiness she’s
finally discovering, Shadow turns to Dillian. But will she find shelter
there…or another betrayal?

Obsession can be deadly …

FULL PACKAGE: A Lauren Blakely Review, Excerpt, AND GIVEAWAY!

*ARC received from the author for an honest review*

The Queen of RomComs delivers again! Lauren Blakely never disappoints with her charmingly funny and devilishly sassy characters. FULL PACKAGE delivers just what it intends….the full spread of sexy, funny, and heartwarming reads that any good romance lover needs. Nothings better than the typical trope of “how can something so wrong feel so right”. But when two best friends become roommates and decide to step over the line of friendship…you’re in for one hot read.

The doctor’s in: Chase has been best friends with Josie for years and it make have snuck up on him, but his friendship with Josie is growing into something beyond the friendly bond. When he’s back in town with the worst luck in finding a new home, Josie steps in and realizes he’d be the perfect roommate: they already get along. Josie hasn’t had the best luck with men and Chase has her best interest at heart so he could help her find Mr. Right…right?

Should they cross the line: I loved the fact that this was another book from a male’s perspective. There aren’t too many out there that I’ve enjoyed and Blakely always nails it each time. Chase is so devilishly funny with Josie and it honestly makes me so deliriously happy to see that these two started off as best friends. The ease with which these two coexist is just so sweet (pun intended). Side note: the “recipe chapters” were so DAMN clever! Blakely was able to have recipes Josie would use and somehow twirl in her feelings towards what was to happen to give the reader just the right amount of delicious teasing!

GAH! I’m so happy with how this one turned out! Blakely put in all the right ingredients and one delicious read was created! I can’t WAIT for her next release, THE HOT ONE! Until  next review…

XOXO Nalla

FULL PACKAGE by Lauren Blakely is Here!

A sexy and funny friends-to-lovers standalone romantic comedy, FULL PACKAGE is about a sexy, witty man as he falls head over heels for a woman, who just happens to be his roommate. It takes everything you love about a Lauren Blakely novel –witty dialogue, smoking hot sex scenes, and heartfelt moments –and puts them into one fantastic book! Told in the guy’s POV, with a creative look into Josie’s POV as well, FULL PACKAGE is the laugh-out-loud and insanely hot story of what happens when a sexy ER doc falls madly in love with his gorgeous roommate…and they’re forced to deal with all that simmering desire in a mere six hundred square feet of living space.

“Lauren Blakely has mastered the recipe for delightful and delicious. It’s called Full Package. I can’t find words to tell you how much I enjoyed this friends to lovers romance with enough sweet to melt in your mouth and enough spice to melt your panties.”

~ iScream Books


“Lauren Blakely nailed it AGAIN. This man man is perfection! HOT, SWEET, FUNNY, SMART.”

~ Queen of Hearts


✮✮✮FULL PACKAGE is here!✮✮✮

From the New York Times Bestselling author of MISTER O and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….

Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

Spoiler-neither one of us sleeps.

Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

“Fresh, fun, flirty, and fabulous.”

~ Karen at Bookalicious Babes Blog



I point to the curved wooden stand with a hook at the top. “This. Explain this.”

                Josie sets her hands on her hips. “It’s a banana holder.”

                I give her a stern look. “I can read. I don’t need to know what. I need to know why.” I poke the object on the shelf at Bed Bath & Beyond, otherwise known as the Nexus of Unnecessary Things. Pretty sure there’s some kind of vortex or force field right smack dab in the middle of this store attracting all the weird, bizarre, and odd home goods. “Why can’t they sit on the kitchen counter? Or, how about in a bowl?”

                “Maybe the bananas just like to dangle?” she suggests. “Hang free and all?”

                Smacking my forehead, I go along with it. “Aha. That makes perfect sense.”

                “I’m here to help.” She tugs on my shirtsleeve. “But can we please get to the sheet aisle? You can’t sleep on a naked mattress.”

                “That may be true, but I could definitely sleep naked on a mattress,” I offer, and she laughs as we navigate through another sardine-packed aisle in the mammoth store.

                It’s one in the afternoon, and I just moved in this morning. That took all of two hours. Spending my twenties in med school and as a resident gave me very little time for the acquisition of things, so most of my possessions fit in a duffel bag. I have very little. Not even sheets for a queen-size bed. Ergo, I’m spending Saturday at Bed Bath & Beyond, which is a bit like wandering through a Buzzfeed post titled “Ten Things I’ll Never Use.”

                More like five hundred. Wait. Make that five hundred and one, because I just spotted the new number one item on the list.

                “That,” I say as I make a beeline for a shelf of crème brûlée torches. Grabbing a silvery one, I hold it up. “Please say we can have a housewarming party, and you’ll make crème brûlée, and I can stride all proud and awesome into the kitchen,” I say, puffing out my chest and deepening my voice. “And I can light it with a torch, and we’ll all ooh and ahh at the manly fire I made when I lit up a dessert.”

                She arches an eyebrow. “A manly fire?”

                I nod vigorously. “And then you’ll let the guests take turns punching me in the face for being a total douche for owning a crème brûlée torch.”

                She narrows her eyes. “You actually want people to punch you?”

                I’m deadly serious as I answer her. “If I ever own a crème brûlée torch, you have carte blanche to punch me, Josie. You really should.” I drop the torch on the shelf and take her hand, clasping it tightly in mine. “Promise me. From this day forward. Promise you’ll punch me if I ever own a crème brûlée torch, a rotating tie rack, or more than one kind of cheese grater. This is part of our roommate pact.”

                She grips my hand tighter, her green eyes glowing with stark seriousness. “I solemnly swear to pummel you under all the aforementioned circumstances. As proof of our friendship and roommate solidarity.”

                “You’re a saint,” I say, then wrap a hand around her head and tug her close for a quick kiss on her forehead.

                And hello, sweet, sexy scent of Josie. What is this delicious smell? Is it . . . oh fuck me.Cherries.My God, she smells like cherries. Like the perfect summer fruit. Like the naughtiest fruit. And I’ve got to wonder if that cherry scent is her face lotion, her shampoo, or her body wash?

                Body wash.

                My mind is adrift, and the word association begins. Because what goes with body wash but nudity?

                Naked woman in the shower. Washing. Lathering. Soaping.

                Ah, hell.

                Snap the fuck out it, Summers.

In Safe Hands – A Katie Ruggle Review


**ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Katie Ruggle closes out with a BANG! The Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue has come to a close with In Safe Hands and the action has never been better.


Daisy is agoraphobic after witnessing the death of her mother in a horrible robbery at 16. You’d think that would make for little to no love life. But the deputy that rescued her, Chris Jennings, has become her best friend over the years. And it’s become much more on Daisy’s end right when the murders, fires, and mysteries of this small Colorado mountain town come to a crest and Daisy’s in the crosshairs of the killer.

I have yet to read a book that does such an amazing job as  In Safe Hands when it comes to a budding romance between two best friends. Daisy and Chris have such a wonderful friendship with small nuances of what could be more. Daisy is also this kick-ass fitness guru! I love that Chris has been training her with self defense and that helps to bring in all the girls from the RMS&R crew together. It’s when all the puzzle pieces from each story begin to unfold that they begin to find out that all of their troubles have been related.

When I finished Gone Too Deep, Book 3, I was STUNNED at the ending as to whom the true killer was in this crazy town. Spending this entire book knowing The Sheriff was nerve wracking but in such a delightful way! I love stories that show the other side of the story as far as good-guy / bad-guy. Juggle’s was so carefully planned over 4 stories that it made for one hell of a ride.

Hoping for more soon from Katie Ruggle! Until next time…. Happy Bingeing Beauties!

XOXO Nalla

P.S. George will ALWAYS be my favorite 🙂










#BOOKISHBOX – Outlander Box


Y’all this box..I couldn’t even wait to leave the post parking lot to open it! Let’s get to this review!

The shirt quote is, as always with Appraising Pages, perfect and fully embodies Jamie and Claire. I admit I’m a sucker and haven’t finished book 1! I started with the show by watching episode 1 while on vacation with my sister and immediately knew I wanted the books. When I got home i started reading and watching an episode at a time so I was at the same pace. But I stopped right before The Wedding and sometimes…juuuuust sometimes the picture is better than the words because whoo lord those two…. But one day I WILL catch up with the books! For now I’ll settle on watching my Jamie and Claire.

The Lexy Olivia bookmark! I fear I may need to buy this girl out of house and home! Her bookmarks are always my favorite. And I was about to purchase the “Sassenach” one when this came in the mail! Although I’m sure I’ll still buy it… This lovely quote from Jamie will definitely do for now.

The Geeky Caldron’s beautiful Sassenach bangle is perfect! Silver is my jewelry color and I’m proudly wearing this beauty with the rest of my baubles. From The Page‘s “Claire’s Pressed Flowers” candle smells so pretty! I love lavendar! I’ll need to buy a bigger one soon.

My other favorite piece of this box was the tumbler. The triquetra is one of my own symbols that I resonate with and paired  with Claire’s quote…I’m in awe of how perfect this really is.

“Sometimes I feel very much a stranger in a strange land.”



Shadow Silence – A Yasmine Galenorn Review


**ARC Received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Yasmine Galenorn has been one of the most descriptive writers I’ve ever read. Her magical worlds fall off the page and create such beautiful imagery that I always want to jump right into the story.

For the second book in the Whisper Hollow Series, Shadow Silence,  we come back to Kerris Fellwater as a cold winter begins to settle into the town. Everyone knows the towns rules regarding the Lady of the Lake and the victims she claims. But when her best friend, Peggin, is in her clutches, Kerris must do whatever it takes to save her.

Peggin falls under the spell of the Lady and nearly dies multiple times. Kerris is so incredibly intelligent when it comes to putting the puzzle pieces together. A dream that leads to an accident, which then leads to a long dead secret hidden away beneath ANOTHER secret. Peggin was brave in her withstanding to survive the Lady’s curse. And sneaking in the background are the mangy Hounds with whom we may have a major player coming to visit Whisper Hollow soon. CAN’T WAIT!

I absolutely love Kerris Fellwater. I have managed to fall for each character Galenorn has created but Kerris has become my all time favorite. She’s so solidly strong and supportive in her beliefs and values that I find myself wishing to be more like her. The continuing romance between her and her guarding, Bryan was perfectly laid out. How the two discover that they’ve fallen for one another is just beautifully told.

On par with Galenorn and her magnificently terrifying companion: we finally meet Veronica, Queen of the Dead. In what has to be one of THE best sounding introductions EVER. 3 words: THRONE OF BONES. I tend to be wary of these creatures Galenorn’s main characters must partner with and yes Veronica is deadly but I want to see her in all her glory! Hoping there’s more to come with her in the series.

Love love loved getting the chance to review Shadow Silence and can’t wait for more from Yasmine Galenorn in the Whisper Hollow Series!

Until next review…Happy Bingeing Beauties!

XOXO Nalla
