My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Promises” brings us the conclusion to the Web of Sin trilogy. As expected, this book has all the final pieces to the puzzle and they are revealed bit by bit. This dark and suspenseful story is filled with so many twists and turns you are sure to get whiplash. Nothing prepared me for how the story unfolded !

Araneae and Sterling have had to overcome many obstacles in their way to finding happiness and the answers to Araneae’s questions. They are the balance each other needed. Sterling has kept his promises to help Araneae uncover her family’s dark secrets, even though he is still trying to shield her. I love it when the bad guy falls hard! Sterling is not a good man, he is capable of horrible things, but he loves Araneae and will do everything he can to protect her. His devotion and love for Aranae are undeniable.

Araneae is Sterling’s weakness, but at the same time she is his strength. Araneae and Sterling are determined to deal with whatever comes their way together, and they are simply a force to be reckoned with. This book was a fitting end to the trilogy, where light overcomes darkness.

Many thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for my copy of this book!

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins #newrelease #review

Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018


There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.

But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this romantic comedy. The story is engrossing, the characters well developed, and the story overall enjoyable, it manages to make your heart flutter!

Sebastian Quinn is the creative director of a struggling men’s lifestyle magazine. He is also considered a bad boy of publishing. He is passionate about his job, but for the first time in his career, he has stumbled.

Georgina Keller specializes in media consulting and has been hired to work alongside Sebastian and co-manage his department. At first, Sebastian sees Georgina as a threat and a frustrating disruption to his routine. He is not used to taking orders. Their opposing management styles and personality differences complicate their forced collaboration.

I loved the way Sebastian builds his relationship with Georgina, it was truly beautiful. I loved him eventually once the hard ass persona had gone. He has adapted to his professional surroundings and adopted a public persona, his confidence has been hard earned. The author allowed Georgina and Sebastian’s conflicted feelings to shine through which in turn allowed their relationship to slowly evolve. Their bickering and falling in love was cute and fun to read.

I loved that the author did not create her drama by weakening the heroine, but rather gave us a very strong willed female lead. Georgina has strength, and perseverance. She is also able to compromise.

I loved the connection between the characters. Even through all the issues, they can joke and have fun together. What really gives this story its edge is the warmth and humor that runs through it.

Many thanks to the author and Give Me Books PR for my early copy of this book!

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”

Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez #review

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.


My Review

Rating : 4 Stars 

This book was an engaging and sweet, yet angsty romance, which featured Tanner Reese the younger brother of the main character from The Darkest Sunrise Duet, Porter Reese.

Tanner is a dreamy hero and a celebrity adored by thousands of fans. His show is the number one cooking show on television and made him millions. He lives in the spotlight and having a private life is complicated.

Rita Hartley is at a crossroads both professionally and privately. She is the office manager of her husband’s private practice, but her married life was a lie and her husband cheated on her. Her ability to trust has been shattered.

Tanner and Rita have a simmering attraction and chemistry, something that instantly drew me in. The portion of the story that is amusing is the fact that both characters have zero plans on falling for the other. Yet they are both so obviously attracted to everything about the other.

Both characters were strong and well developed with very real emotions and flaws. I loved how the author didn’t just brush away their problems and actually dealt with the issues.

It was awesome to see Tanner open his eyes to the life he wants. The only little gripe I had overall was that I would like to have seen less drama with Rita’s ex-husband. But overall, this was an entertaining read.

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book. Thank you for stopping by!


I shifted the phone to my other ear and asked her, “Did you just get in bed?”

“If, by bed, you mean carrying a glass of wine out back to swing in the hammock, maybe.”

I bit my bottom lip, my head falling back against the headrest. For most men, this would have been an innocuous statement. But for a hammock connoisseur like myself, this was the normal guy equivalent of her saying that she liked to give blowjobs during halftime.

“You have a hammock out back?”

There was a delay in her response, which was followed by a subtle kiss of her lips on what I assumed was a wine glass. “Don’t knock it until you try it. It’s one of the most underrated luxuries in outdoor furniture.”

“Oh, I’m not knocking anything. Rope or quilted?”

“Mayan, actually.”

“Oh, sweet heavenly baby Jesus, she’s beautiful and knows her hammocks. I’ve never been so turned on in my life.”

She giggled, pausing for another sip. “You know, if you leaked this hammock fetish to the press, you could probably increase demand by five million percent and singlehandedly lower the country’s unemployment rate.”

Okay, so at some point during the day, she’d figured out who I was.

But! Even with this knowledge, she was trying to avoid a date with me and was not elbow-deep in planning our televised wedding. This was a definite plus in my book.

“Yeah, but then, when I talked to beautiful women like yourself, I’d have no idea if the hammock was your idea or a ploy to impress me.”

“Jeez, that’s sad, Tanner,” she said, her sweet Southern accent like a wave rolling over my name.

I’d meant it as a joke, but it was the absolute truth when it came to dating. Early on in my career, I’d done a rapid-fire interview about my personal life. One of the questions had been: What would your ideal woman order on the first date? Truth be told, the only thing I hoped my ideal woman would order was something she wanted. I didn’t factor into that. But I’d been on my last question in my last interview of the last day of a month-long press tour. My face had hurt from fake smiling, I’d been in desperate need of a shower, a smoke, and sleep, and my mind had been mush, so I’d prattled off the first thing that had come to mind: shrimp and grits.

That one little answer somehow made it onto my Wiki page, and after that, every woman I’d taken out ordered shrimp and grits. One of them even had a shellfish allergy and nearly ended up in the hospital. And this insanity was not limited to women outside of the spotlight.

I’d once gone on a date with America’s princess of pop, Levee Williams. We’d hit it off at a charity event. For one of the most famous women in the world, she was a surprisingly nice girl, gorgeous, and funny as all get out. But the first time I took her out? One guess what she ordered.

I was at the end of my rope with dating and lost my freaking mind before storming out like an asshole. That night, as I was reporting shrimp and fucking grits as an error to Wiki, I noticed that her page listed it as her favorite food. I’d never had the balls to contact her again, and I once hid behind a palm tree on Rodeo Drive when I heard the clamoring of paparazzi calling her name. But that’s neither here nor there.

In short, while finding a woman was all too easy, dating was hard.

But that wasn’t about to stop me from trying with Rita.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

“You won’t go wrong with this delicious tale from S.L. Scott. Her take on royal

romance is truly unique and divine!” ~Author Adriana Locke



b529e-3d2261_ecfbbf8d60b34256a9a23e2ff1efa2cfmv2Being bad never felt so good.

I fell for Ally the moment I saw her. Who doesn’t like a confident, intelligent woman with curves I could spend days exploring?

Who am I kidding?
I have.
Many times.

Our story ended abruptly when she left like we weren’t meant to be. We are. So I’m calling her bluff.
That’s how I ended up thousands of miles from home, standing next to a man who claims to be her fiancé.
Being good has never felt so bad.

When it comes to a successful man with an incredible body and biteable jaw aka Hutton  … let’s just say willpower is not my strong suit.

Need more?
Try bad-boy American.
You’re welcome.

Embracing my newfound good girl status, I do the right thing and start my reign. My
desires no longer matter. The monarchy, the people, and my country do. There is no place for love in this new life.

But I never expected to see him again, much less standing next to my royally appointed soon-to-be fiancé.

As if that didn’t complicate things, the man I once told I love you to is wearing a perfectly
tailored tuxedo and my favorite smirk.

I straighten my crown and adjust my dress, realizing this good girl never stood a chance. I’ll take the bad reputation if I get him.

Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, will have you feeling like the Queen of your own fairy tale.

One-click this new romance and fall in love while reading.


My Review

Rating : 4 Stars

I liked Ally and Hutton, they were perfect for each other. Yet they come from very different places : Ally is royalty, heir to a fictional country, and Hutton is Ethan Everest’s younger brother and a businessman. Their worlds collide after a chance encounter.

Ally is a highly likeable character: smart, funny, sassy, and oh so vulnerable. She is a modern princess, but her life is not really a fairy tale. She is bound by duty and family. I loved her independent streak but also liked how she accepted her duties to her country. Yet she lets herself have some fun taking what she wants regardless of the rules.

Hutton Everest is an endearing hero: understanding, patient, protective and a little possessive. I loved how he constantly displayed his love and devotion to Ally. He wants to give their relationship a chance. Ally isn’t just a blip on his dating radar.

New challenges, and precarious situations will test Ally’s abilities to her future position.
This charming romance is sweet and packs just the right amount of steam. It combines nicely the fantasy aspect of royalty romance and the conflicts that affect a modern royal, related to the heavy burden of responsibilities, obligations, and constant media spotlight. The plot was a bit slow for my liking at times, but overall this was an entertaining and cute read.

My honest is based on an advanced reader copy of this book. Thank you for stopping by!

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Adele and Dan fell hard for each other in university but their relationship was wrecked by Adele’s doubts and buried pain. She was convinced Dan was better off without her and they both pursued other dreams. But they were left feeling as if things were unfinished between them.

Fast forward eight years, Adele helps couples organize the perfect wedding, and Dan is the best man at the biggest wedding of her career. Their unexpected reunion revives Dan’s feelings of hurt and betrayal. Adele broke his heart and his trust.

Lovely Little Liar by J. Kenner


She’s not the woman I thought … but dammit, she’s the woman I want.

Lovely Little Liar, a sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is LIVE!

lovely little liar_ebook_1707x2500-v2

I never thought of myself as cynical, but getting dumped at the altar changes a man.

Now, I’m all about my job. About building my business and getting on with my life. Don’t get me wrong; I still love women. I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.

But getting close? Getting serious? Giving a woman my trust again?

Yeah, that’s not going to happen.

Or so I thought.

Then I met her. It’s funny how things can change in a heartbeat. How one case of mistaken identity can change everything. But there she was, all business and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her.

Most of all, I wanted to help her. To keep her and her sister safe. But the more I get to know her, the more I want her. The whole package. The complete woman.

And the miracle is that she wants me, too.

Trouble is, we’ve both been burned before. Now, I know one thing for certain—the only way that we’ll survive the heat that crackles between us is if we both find the courage to leap into the fire together.

Lovely Little Liar is a novella originally published as Bitch Slap. Minor edits, such as expanded scenes, have been made to this book.

My Review 

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Romance books written in the guy’s first person POV are few and far between, and Julie Kenner definitely nailed it! She has woven an entertaining story in a way that is light and fun. This fast-paced story starts with a bang and a misunderstanding.

Pierce Blackwell has recently launched a security business with a few friends. Jez Stuart manages her younger sister’s acting career and needs to hire a security detail. The context of their first encounter gives rise to a hilarious confusion. Pierce and Jez are engaging characters, hiding their vulnerabilities behind a self-assured attitude. I definitely rooted for them and read their story in one sitting.

This book is the first in a new series. It is lighter compared to the books in the Stark universe. Julie Kenner’s writing is flawless and I loved the great cast of new and secondary characters. This new series definitely has potential, I can’t wait for more. If you are looking for a fun, sweet and sexy story, then this book is a good choice! This novella was originally published as Bitch Slap.

Many thanks to the author for my copy of this book!

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sweet, sexy, fun and soulful, this enemies-to-lovers story was everything that I need in a romance. One thing is for certain, Tucker Middleton is a hero worth reading about and I found myself quickly rooting for him. As for Charlie, she is so incredibly lovable, sweet and sassy.

Charleston, “Charlie”, Monroe has inherited her father’s consulting firm. But she will need to be married in order for her to become chairman of the board. The only man Charlie could ever imagine being married to is Tucker Middleton. The problem with this arrangement is that they have been enemies ever since she walked away without so much as a word, to focus solely on her studies and her father’s expectations.

The chemistry between Charlie and Tucker is amazing, they are absolutely adorable together. Their back and forth banter was irresistible. I really like second chance stories and this one was special.  Some parts were really funny and cute, with great dialogue and the author does a great job of building up the tension. This time around, Tucker is determined to level the playing field and play Charlie’s dating game by his rules.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I will certainly be picking up more books by Kelly Elliott, as this author definitely knows how to create a delightful read with endearing characters and page turning dialogue!

Many thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for my copy of this book!

Rolling over, I pulled the covers over my head and moaned.

“Oh shit,” I whispered. Even my whispered words hurt my head. I

hadn’t drunk like that in a long time.

Note to self: Give up alcohol. Except wine. Wait. No. Never ever give up


With my head still buried, I tried to think back to last night. The

last thing I remembered was talking to that guy . . . Brad. No Billy.

Bobby? Brady?

Who cares? I need aspirin.

I pushed the covers over my head and went to get out of bed. I

froze when I saw the sheets.

Oh. My. God.

These aren’t my sheets.

Turning, I looked at the bed.

This isn’t my bed.

Glancing down, I gasped.

I’m not wearing any clothes.

Covering my mouth, I jumped up. “I didn’t. Oh God, please tell me

I didn’t. Terri! I’m going to kill her.”

Frantically looking around, I saw my purse on the chair in the corner.

Rushing over to it, I dug through it until I found my phone.

As I waited for that whore to answer her phone, I mumbled, “She

broke the number one girlfriend code. Don’t let your friend leave with a

guy when they’re drunk!”

“Hey, girl! So? Did you get laid like you wanted? Please tell me yes

’cause this would make a great story.”

My heart jumped to my throat as a small sound came from my lips.

“Wh-what? Why? How could you? You let me go off with him? What if

he had killed me!”

She laughed. “Hardly. But then again, you do drive him up a wall,

and he has mentioned snuffing you out a time or two.”

My finger and thumb went to the bridge of my nose. “What are

you talking about?”

Terri muffled the phone, then laughed. “Hello? Terri! I’m at a

strange man’s house, I don’t remember anything, and I’m naked.”

“Wait. You’re naked?”


“Oh, wow. Shit just got really interesting. Where’s Tucker?”

Tucker? How in the hell would I know where Tucker was?

“I don’t know! I don’t care. Terri. I don’t know where I am. He

could come back any minute, and I’m standing here naked. Oh my God.

Do you think I had sex with him?”

“Do you feel like you had sex?”

Stopping, I jumped around a bit. “No. I’d be sore if I did, right?

Fuck if I know, it’s been so long.”

Terri sighed. “It really has been that long. You’ve done forgotten

how it feels, huh?”

“Aww, hell, Mr. Pootie!”

“I’m sure he’s fine. Let’s get back to what happened between you

and Tucker last night.”

I shook my head as I glanced around the room for my clothes.

Dropping to my knees, I looked under the bed.

“Why are we talking about Tucker? I have bigger problems.”

Then I heard a male voice clear his throat.

“Oh God,” I whispered. “He’s in the room, Terri. I’m naked! I can’t

find my clothes.”

Terri laughed. “Okay, well, have fun. Tell Tucker I said hey.”

My brows furrowed, and I was about to say something when the

line went dead.

It was then I felt the change in the room, and everything from

last night came crashing back into my poor brain, causing my head to

pound harder.

Slowly lifting up, I peered over the bed, only to find Tucker leaning

up against the doorjamb. He wore a shit-eating grin on his face, and

fuck me, he looked so gorgeous.

Oh no.

I swallowed hard. “Um . . . I can’t, um. Well, it appears I am . . . you

see, I can’t find my, ahh . . . the dress I had on.”

Jesus. Why do I act like an idiot around him? Why!

“Your clothes had throw up on them. They’re almost dry.”

My stomach dropped. “Did we . . . ?”

He smiled. Full on dimples and all.

God, I want him. Even in my current hungover condition, I’ve never wanted

this man more than right now.

Wait. No. I don’t!

Yes . . . yes, you do.

Crap. What if I already had him? And I don’t remember. I’m going to be so

pissed off if we had sex and I don’t remember it.

“No, we didn’t sleep together, and for the record, you got yourself


Relaxing, I let out the breath I didn’t realize I held in.
