{review} Alone Before You (Before You #1) by Claire Scott

{review} Alone Before You (Before You #1) by Clair..

I don’t know why, but every so often when an author reaches out I like to take a chance. As I started this story I braced myself for a nail biter as well as an emotional rollercoaster. However, as soon as we got to present day neither of those things happened. The story was a good idea, but I feel like it needed to be fleshed out more in order for me to have loved […]

{review} The Sound of Light by Claire Wallis

{review} The Sound of Light by Claire Wallis

I’m a Claire Wallis fan. I loved Push, it was absolutely epic. So I had very high hopes for The Sound of Light. However, it’s been a while and my reading preferences have shifted and I’m reading only 100% contemporaries right now. And maybe this was paranormal, but I’m also not sure if K’acy had some psychiatric issues. I honestly couldn’t tell. While the writing was smooth and effortless, the story itself felt like it […]

{review} Damage Control (Dirty Money #2) by Lisa R..

This story was action packed and full of danger, sexy times and romance. I loved book 1 (Hard Rules), so I absolutely had to read this. It had been a while, so a huge thank you to the author who did a massive recap in the beginning of the book to refresh my memory, thank goodness! I have the worst memory. The story continues with Brandon trying to deal with his corrupt family, but now […]

{blog tour & top shelf review} Bad Deeds (Dir..

Bad Deeds: A Dirty Money Novel by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: August 8th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Holy romantic suspense goodness. I LOVED this installment. My favorite of the series so far! With the cliffhanger the last book ended on, I couldn’t start Bad Deeds fast enough. This book starts off exactly where the other one ended, yet here we really began to see a lot of the players colors unveiled. So very full of crazy […]

{Review} The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise

{Review} The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia..

  This is a fun, quick, steamy read that had some laugh-out-loud moments. The characters work together and discover that, even though they didn’t see it coming, they definitely have chemistry.  This book was low on angst and drama although there were definitely situations where that could have been possible.  It made me feel like this is a great beach read. Rebecca is a reporter who wants to be an anchor at her local news […]

{top shelf review} Where I End by Michelle Dare

{top shelf review} Where I End by Michelle Dare

Gripping. I absolutely LOVED Cy and Evie’s story. It caught me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the very last page. Ms. Dare’s words drew me in as they beautifully wove such a deep story. It was a story that broke my heart, but it also healed my heart, however, not perfectly. I think that’s what I loved about it. This story was real – just because Cy and Evie […]

{Review} Until Now (Not Yet #2) by Laura Ward

  Wow!  I thought I knew what to expect from this book…after all, I’ve read many stories with a similar premise.  But, boy did I get more than I bargained for.  This story was so much more than just a romance.  Everything about this book tugged at my heart and pulled at my emotions…I smiled, I sighed, I sobbed.  If you dive into this story, and, trust me, you definitely should, be prepared to lose […]
