THE RISK – An Elle Kennedy Review

Brenna stole my heart during The Chase with her outspoken personality and her no-filter way of life. I wasn’t sure there was a man alive at Briar to handle her and I was right. The hero to win over Brenna is none other than rival team captain Jake Connelly. Quick witted and just as dedicated to the sport as Brenna, Jake is the perfect match for her in every way. When he stops one of his teammates from hooking up with her, it sparks a war between the two of them that ONLY happens when two people have insane sexual tension. Watching these two dance around one another was so entertaining. The tension was so thick and their first kiss is powerful and all consuming.

I like that there was a bit of a switch here for the reasoning behind our couple not getting together. Where Brenna doesn’t want to be involved with the enemy, Jake has no problem admitting his attraction to Brenna and actively pursuing her. He’s not one to deny himself pleasures and Brenna is an enigma he wants to solve and conquer. Outside of that, Brenna has a vulnerability to her that Jake wants to cater to. They have so much in common and time spent between them is easy as they get to know one another. But as with any Romeo and Juliet-esque romance, there has to come the climax of there possibly never begin a HEA.

Now these two are H-O-T and they do have more sparks than anyone else I’ve read in some time. But more than that, the two of them just flow so well together. When Jake is convinced he needs to focus more on his hockey career rather than risk losing Brenna, I wanted to scream! He had been doing so amazingly! Brenna was opening up to the first man in her life in so long. But our tough girl took it in stride despite her heart breaking. No other spoilers but I’ll let you readers discover the HEA yourselves and feel all the warmth and goodness I did when these two final came to their senses. Throw in a dash of a new girl in the squad (Rupi..I LOVE YOU GIRL) and a tease of what book 3 will be about (OMG ELLE give me it now!) and The Risk is my next 5 star read for this year!

MOTION – A Penny Reid Review, Excerpt Reveal and Giveaway

Anyone who’s read my Penny Reid reviews before knows I’ll talk about her unique voice. Her standout heroines always hold a different flame compared to your typical romance leads. Mona is no different and she’s a whole new brand of quirky that I’ve fallen in love with. Girl genius who’s graduated high school and college early, Mona’s brain works so differently from her twin, Lisa’s outlandish personality. Where Mona is plain-Jane and studious Lisa is balls to the wall wild child living the lifestyle of celebrity child. (There’s also Leo who is the older brother who we haven’t met yet). Lisa has somehow landed herself in jail and desperate for Mona to play the switch card. A week in her crazy twin’s shoes shouldn’t be easy, but Lisa will do her best to help her sister out…for now.

Stuck in her sister’s life, Mona – now Lisa – is also stuck with a babysitter. Yes, you read that right. Her wild child sister is so wild that her parents wont trust her without supervision in her own home. Enter in their older brother Leo’s best friend Abram. A musician and rough around the edges man, Abram is hotter than sin and tempting as can be. But Mona struggles to keep up the charade of of being Lisa under his gaze. Because Abram is SO DAMN CHARMING. And smart. And sweet. And funny. And I don’t quite know how these two are going to get their HEA because Abram’s number one rule: NO LYING.

With every little joke between Mona and Abram i found myself loving their dynamic. Mona’s weird sense of humor and odd phrases she uses to kill quiet are my favorite part of this book. She has a warped sense of what she deserves based on an incident in her past. I just wanted to shake her and scream “TELL HIM!” More and more of her own personality shines through as she spends time with Abram and I can easily see him falling for her. But with their days numbered I’m not sure this HEA will be so easy. Be prepared for the cliff hanger folks….cause its a gut-punch. I cannot WAIT for the next book because I need more of these two NOW!

One week.

Home alone.

Girl genius.

Unrepentant slacker.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.

Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.

Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

MOTIONBT.jpg

 

My stomach rumbled, long and loud, and I pressed my hand against it. Grunting into the darkness, I tossed off the covers and stood from Lisa’s bed. Food on my mind, I slipped out of the room and down the stairs. The kitchen was dark, but instead of flipping on a light—which might’ve alerted Abram as to my whereabouts . . . which he probably didn’t care about so long as “Lisa wasn’t doing anything crazy”—I crept on quiet feet to the fridge and opened it.

Momentarily dazzled by the bright light within, it took several seconds of squinting and blinking before the scant contents became visible. I frowned. In addition to the pizza box, two suspicious-looking containers of Chinese takeout, and various condiments, I found: shredded cheddar/jack cheese blend, a zucchini, a half a pint of mushrooms, and hot salsa. Opening the hot salsa, I smelled it, and then I dipped my pinkie inside and tasted it while examining the lid. It looked, smelled, and tasted fine.

Placing my finds on the island counter, I shut the fridge. The sudden extinguishing of the bright light meant that the kitchen was now pitch black. Shrugging off my lack of sight, I extended my arms and blindly felt my way over to the pantry until my hands connected with the torso of a person.

A person.

A PERSON!

I jumped back on instinct, my leg hitting one of the stools at the island counter and sending it crashing to the ground. My heart in my throat, I screamed, turned, and darted forward, but my feet tangled with the felled stool and I pitched, bracing myself for a gravitational collision with unseen wooden bars and a granite stool top.

But then strong arms caught me, deftly spinning and lifting me into the air. Cold dread rushed through my body, tensing every muscle. I couldn’t think. I didn’t think. Instinctively, my legs and fists pumped, fighting against my captor. Rocks in my throat as I readied another scream, a hand covered my mouth just as I belted it out.

“Whoa! Calm down. It’s me.” Abram’s voice at my ear soothed, his bulky arm a tight band around my torso, my back to his front, my feet not touching the ground. “Calm down. Shhh. Calm down.”

Hot breath teased my hair and neck, and I stilled, relief at discovering it was Abram didn’t quite chase away the viral panic still attached to my hemoglobin, coursing through my veins. I shook. I was shaking. And I was gasping through my nose, greedy for air.

Perhaps he heard or felt my strained breathing because his arm loosened, lowering my feet to the ground, and his hand covering my mouth slid away. “Are you okay? Are you hurt?”

“I’m fine,” I said, not sounding convincing. Truth was, I felt like throwing up. “Can you, uh, let me go?”

His arms immediately fell away and I stupidly rushed forward, once more crashing into the stool.

I heard Abram mutter a curse under his breath just as he caught me again, lifting me off the ground again, and saving me—again—from another gravitational collision. This time he turned us away from the stool and carried me across the room.

I didn’t fight him this time. In fact, I relaxed into him. Wired and exhausted, but mostly embarrassed, I allowed myself to be transported without protest. We left the kitchen and I was finally able to see dim outlines of furniture and walls, courtesy of the streetlamp illumination spilling through the windows of the living room.

Abram carried me to my mother’s favorite piece of furniture in our house, a gold velvet chaise lounge said to have once belonged to Napoleon’s sister, Pauline Bonaparte. Depositing me on the soft surface, Abram crossed to one of the Tiffany lamps and pulled the chain, bathing the room in soft blue and yellow, colored light filtering through the stained glass.

He then returned, knelt in front of me, one hand on my leg, the other cupping my cheek. “Are you okay?”

“Yes,” I said, cleared my throat, unable to lift my eyes higher than his black T-shirt, and said again, “Yes.”

He blew out a breath, pushing his fingers through my hair. By doing so, he forced my chin up and caught my gaze. That wrinkle of worry appeared between his eyebrows, and his very pretty eyes—which glowed and sparkled like polished amber cabochons—moved between mine.

“You really freaked out.”

I stiffened, gritting my teeth and yanking my head back, out of his reach. “I didn’t know you were there.”

Watching me with watchful watchfulness, he let his hand drop slowly until it rested on my left leg, next to his other hand which covered my right knee. “I said your name—twice—when I walked in.”

“I didn’t hear you.” I glanced from his eyes to where his palms were hot on my skin. “And I couldn’t see. I’d just shut the fridge, my eyes hadn’t adjusted.”

“Did you think I was a robber?” His left eyebrow lifted as did the side of his mouth, just a hint.

Clearly, he was trying to lighten the mood. Unfortunately, I still felt shaky. And embarrassed.

“I- I didn’t think,” I admitted, releasing an unsteady breath. “I wasn’t thinking. Sorry I fell.”

“No need to apologize. It wasn’t like you could help it.”

“Yeah. Gravity can be such a downer.”

He made a light, laughing sound. “What?”

“Uh, nothing. Whatever.” No physics jokes!

His frown returned, his fingers flexing slightly on my legs. “Are you sure you’re okay?”

Reaching for his hands, I removed them from my knees, setting them away. “I’m really fine. I just don’t like—”

He glanced at my knees. “Being touched?”

“When it’s unexpected.” I crossed my arms.

“That makes sense. But your reaction, even after you knew it was me—” He paused and sat back on his heels, as though debating how to continue and finally settling on, “It was a big reaction.” Abram continued to study me with his big, pretty, knowing brown eyes. “Hey, I would never hurt you.”

I winced, just a little, my gaze falling to my knees where his hands had been. I wanted to huff a laugh and roll my eyes, maybe say something like, I know, don’t be ridiculous.

But the word “Okay,” small and fragile sounding, slipped out instead. I immediately wished it back, because I didn’t understand it. I didn’t know why I’d said it, and I hated not knowing.

Get ahold of yourself, Mona. Pull it together. You are fine. Nothing happened.

Meanwhile, he continued his examination of me, I felt his stare, assessing my downturned face. “Out of curiosity, and no big deal if you don’t want to say, but did something happen to you this last year?”

My back straightened and I sucked in a slow, deep breath before asking calmly, “Like what?”

“You’re very . . . different than you were before.”

“Because I don’t want you touching me?” I tried to infuse my words with challenge, strength—wanting to shake off any earlier impression of weakness—and mostly succeeded. Peeking at him, I gauged his reaction from behind a hastily built wall of dispassion.

But then Abram dropped his chin to his chest, a massive grin lighting his features, and the fragrance of him hit me. My lashes fluttered as though he’d blown dust in my eyes, penetrating my wobbly wall of dispassion and sending it crumbling to the ground.

God, he smelled so good, and—unlike visual stimuli—I couldn’t stop whatever cascade of relaxing, soothing, melting awareness smelling his scent set off. Unthinkingly, I leaned forward an inch, chasing and inhaling the smell of him while he cleared his throat, like he was trying not to laugh.

Why he was fighting a laugh, I didn’t know, but the apparent genuineness of Abram’s struggle to subdue his grin only served to increase his attractiveness.

A moment later, he lifted his eyes and they connected with mine. He’d conceded to a shy smile. It was quite a smile.

“Yes,” he said.

“Yes?” I parroted dumbly. What were we talking about? And would it be weird if I buried my nose in his neck?

“Yes. You not wanting me to touch you means that you are very different now than you were before,” he explained.

I appreciated the completeness and thoroughness of his sentence.

My cheeks were hot. I pressed my hands against them while I examined him with suspicion. What was he doing to me?

“How so?” I asked, hoping to keep him talking so I could hunt down the splintered pieces of my concentration.

His eyebrows pulled together as his shy smile became a smirk. “You’re telling me you don’t remember?”

“Tell me your version of events,” I demanded, side-stepping a lie and still holding my cheeks.

“Uhh . . .” He scratched the back of his neck, peering at me like I both confused and amused him.

I was used to confusing people, but not amusing them. My cheeks burned hotter.

“Do you even remember?” I pushed, knowing my tone was belligerent.

He made a sound like he was choking on a laugh. “Yes. It’s hard to forget waking up to a naked girl in my bed.”

Jaw dropping, my eyes grew to their maximum diameter.

Naked. Girl. In . . . bed?

“Are you serious?” I whispered, my mind darting in all directions, attempting to form a reasonable hypothesis for Lisa’s behavior and coming up completely empty. Suddenly, I couldn’t catch my breath.

He shook his head, giving me an astonished once-over. “You honestly don’t remember?”

My mouth opened and closed as I struggled to speak, but it was no use. I was too . . . I was too many things. Shocked. Confused. Incredulous. ANGRY.

LISA!

What had she been thinking? She’d been eighteen! How would she have liked waking up to find a strange, naked, eighteen-year-old boy in her bed?

I was beyond shocked. I was horrified. I was electrocuted by the reality of my sister’s brazen-slash-creepy quotient, because I couldn’t imagine doing anything in the same sphere of possibility. I was beginning to believe that if my twin and I were represented by a Venn diagram, our only areas of overlap would be physical. A minor sliver of shared corporal characteristics, and that was absolutely it.

“Lisa?”

Blinking at Abram, and promptly becoming tangled in his searching gaze, I realized he was still there. And I was still here. And my hands were still pressed against my cheeks as I warred with what I now identified as hot mortification.

What else could I do? I shot to my feet and marched out of the living room, dropping my hands and running up the main staircase.

LUCK OF THE DEVIL – A Meghan March Audio Review & Giveaway

Again, another stellar dark romance from the devious mind of Meghan March! Coerced into a marriage in order to save her sister, India Forge now has to determine if she can trust her new husband. As ruthless and callous as he is in his business, he’s just as tempting in the bedroom. Indy quickly learns the power she has over this man when it comes to their sex life. Not only does Jericho pray at her feet, he worships he body. Now if she could only get him to respect her half as much as he wants to sleep with her. Because his latest secret will alter her life in ways she never imagined. And she soon has to decide how much she’s willing to forgive in order to win the man.

Jericho Forge is not a man who secedes easily. But one un-requested kiss from his new wife is almost enough to bring him to his knees. With the truth behind their marriage revealed, Jericho and Indy shift the balance of their power in and out of the bedroom. Indy may act sweet and sultry one night and the next, hate Jericho’s guts for lying to her. It s a true fight for power between these two and every moment is rife with tension. Will their marriage last? Can Indy forgive him for tricking her into marrying him? Can Jericho admit where his truest heart lies? All questions answered in the second book.

I must admit that Jericho’s bossy ways won me over in the first book. His way of twisting fate to his liking was magnetic. I fell right along with Indy for his lines every time. But now that Indy is beginning to read him like any of the players she observes at the table, his sweeter side definitely shows. And with Indy finding out more and more behind Jericho’s motives, he has a huge decision to make. Lay all his cards on the table or fold and let her win. “Actions speak louder than words” he says; and he decides to show her how he feels about her in order not to lose her. And as the stakes rise higher and higher, readers will fall off one hell of a cliff hanger wondering if these two will survive their HEA.


New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil.

My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.

Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.

I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.

Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.

But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil.

Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. Read my review of book one now! The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.

HARD-RIDING COWBOY – A Stacey Kennedy Review

We’re on a cowboy binge! The previous two Blachshaws have been filled with heat and passion; and Nash is no different; with his desire to roping up Meghan every chance their alone and even making sure their alone to do it. But Kennedy throws in a twist with a surprise pregnancy between the ill-fated lovers. In a spin on the Romeo & Juliet familial feud, Nash and Meghan have danced around their attraction to one another their entire lives. While Meghan doesn’t fully understand or support the feud, Nash struggles with it while working on the Blackshaw ranch. He has a deep hatred for Meghan’s father and it could be something that comes between their HEA.

A lot of this book is spent back and forth between Meghan’s ability to handle the two men her life hating one another and her need to be independent. Every time Nash seems to take one step forward, another accident or mishap at the ranch leads him to believe her father had a hand it and pushes them two steps back. The will-they, wont-they makes for entertainment while Nash deals with the mysterious setbacks at the ranch. I kept wondering if Megan’s father truly had something to do with it all. And my heart broke for her thinking he could’ve been guilty.

I would call this a second chance romance only because Meghan and Nash seem to need multiple tries at trusting each other before realizing what it will take to truly be happy. All along their story theirs also a romance for Jenny Blackshaw (the boys’ mother), a stray mama cat and her kittens (#smitten), and Nash’s discovery of how his bull-riding accident truly affected him years ago. Absolutely a romance about overcoming all obstacles including accidents, family feuds, self-doubt, and pride. A wonderful, heartfelt (and sexy!) end to the Blackshaw series!


Megan Harrison is the owner of Kinky Spurs. She’s mortgaged up to her eyeballs and works long days and nights, but she’s living life on her terms, not on her wealthy father’s. She’s done being in the cattle rancher’s shadow. She’s got it all figured out, except for the part that involves Nash Blackshaw. He’s a sexy as hell cowboy whose smile can easily charm her out of her tight jeans. The only problem is—their fathers were business rivals, and Megan and Nash have been taught to hate each other since birth.

Nash Blackshaw, a retired professional bull rider, has responsibilities on top of responsibilities. With his PBR career over due to back injury, and his focus narrowed on heading up the Blackshaw Cattle Company’s Guest Ranch, he shouldn’t have time to think about all the ways he wants Megan. But it’s all he thinks of around the sassy and sweet woman. She might be forbidden to him, but Nash wants to take her for a hard, kinky ride.

But small towns have a way of spreading gossip like wildfire, and not everyone is happy about their relationship. Especially when Megan drops a bombshell on Nash after one heated night between them. As much as Megan and Nash want to forget the old feud between their fathers and lose each other in explosive passion, they can’t escape reality. They are meant to be enemies, and Nash’s sizzling, dominant touch might not be enough to keep them together.

THE ROOMMATE DUET -A Kennedy Fox Double Cover Reveal

I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten.

But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us.
Now, I’m screwed.

To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go.

But then the unthinkable happens…
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer.

Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…

*BABY MINE is an angsty, emotional, slow-burn romance wrapped up in a heartbreakingly delicious love story. It’s book 1 in the Hunter & Lennon duet and must be read first.*

STRIP TEASE – An Erin McCarthy Review

Single parent romances can be tricky; making for drama and heartbreak. But McCarthy does a great job of keeping a serious matter lighthearted as two people fall in love over the daughter they created. A one night stand 8 years ago left Grace with the greatest gift of her life, her beautiful daughter. Unfortunately her prince charming gave her a fake name and a wrong phone number so she could never tell him the truth; nor give her daughter the one thing she’s wanted, a father. But one happenstance reading of an article about a charity male strip show and a handy news video and Grace is shocked to see her one night stand strutting his stuff on stage. Taking the sign from fate she travels to Brandon to reveal the truth and find out why he gave her fake information.

Brandon lives a fulfilling life; success, women, friends. His buddy’s annual charity strip show is a night of fun and games. But when a feisty brunette shows up and sparks a long ago memory, Brandon is intrigued. The truth she drops on the dance floor however….definitely not in his plan. Unlike other heroes who have had the “you’re a dad” reveal, Brandon dives head first into fatherhood. He doesn’t doubt Grace or have any negative reaction; he’s shocked but he’s a smart man who accepts the truth easily. I love that Brandon takes the time to talk with Grace and his daughter and truly get to know them…and love them.

Brandon and Grace obviously had chemistry from their one night years ago. But watching Brandon discover his place in fatherhood and Grace finding her place as co-parent was truly different from other romances I’ve read. Brandon steps back and lets Grace make all the decisions despite his desire to make up for all the years he lost. He finds the hobbies that bond him and his daughter and readers will truly feel the love shine through the pages. And when the two of them discover why Grace couldn’t’ get a hold of Brandon…prepare to LAUGH! Filled with love, light, and family this romance is swoon worthy!
