BLURB:


Justin I originally joined the Navy as an escape, to become more than a country farm boy. Being a Navy SEAL turned me into a man, but one without a life outside the military. I thought that was all I needed. Until everyone around began to find their Happily Ever Afters’. I realized my life was missing love, something I've been longing for. All it took was one simple letter from home to remind me that everything I ever needed was right there waiting for me. Becca Losing the love of your life before he was able to meet his child was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through. I tried to move on with my life, and find a new sense of normalcy with my daughter and myself. One simple holiday act of kindness has set my carefully choreographed life into a tailspin. I could never have guessed writing a simple letter to a deployed sailor would bring us to a place we can finally call ‘Home’ again. Can these two trust in the things they can not see to find true happiness?

**While Faith can be read as a standalone, it is best enjoyed after reading Honor, Love, Fate, and Power.**

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I really liked the book, but I had one problem and I don't think it was tiny enough for me to just let it go. Justin and Becca are just emailing/mailing/whatever each other for 99% of the book. Justin is deployed and they don't have a physical meet up until very late in the book and I didn't like that. I wanted to see Batman and Robin together, just getting familiar with each other. Robin is Becca's daughter and Batman is Justin. I get that Robin saw Batman for the first time and fell in love with him via skype, but I wanted to see them going for a walk in the park or sharing an ice cream for example. I was really liking the story and how Becca was slowly becoming one of the gank without it been forced because she was dating Justin. Avery was back to her normal self in this book and reminded me why I liked her which is an improvement from everything that happened in book 4. I would have loved an extended epilogue where we get to see all the couples, but we are going to get in the box set which will be released in Feb 2019, so it's something. I am removing a whole star because I wanted more one to one interaction in the book, but otherwise, the story was good and a good finale to series, since we saw all the couples and babies from the previous books.

Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

First of all, I am happy to see that the trilogy will either continue and become a series or will get a spin-off! I don't care about the specifics, I am just happy that the series will continue one way or another and I will see more of these characters. And it will be Dante's book which is amazing! I am so looking forward to seeing him getting a mate. Getting to know him more in this book made me yearn for his happy ending and he will get one! The book was mostly a combination of good elements and not over the top drama. I didn't like a few things, but mostly I liked the book. Darren has finally gotten his head out of his arse and is trying to locate Cass in order to win her back. Things go rather smoothly after that and I was glad that the author chose to not drag out the reunion. We have been rooting for them, for a long time and they finally got a chance to be together. What bothered me is the mentions of Gabe. He was a good guy and it made me sad to think of him, so I didn't enjoy reading the parts where Cass thought of him. The second thing that I didn't like was the lack of mention of Darren's son. Darren used him as an excuse as to why he and Cass couldn't be together and he didn't even talk about him. Later in the book, I found out/remembered why, which is something. The epilogue was very sweet and I loved it! It's the kind of epilogue I love since we see the characters we love ahead in the future and it gives us a closure to all the couples we had the pleasure to read about.


Excerpt:

Copyright © 2018 Return of the Lycan King: Book 3 Darren and Cassandra
Candace Blackburn

Chapter One

Liam's completion of flight training had rather fortuitous timing. Liam was one of the members of Lex's security team before Darren moved in. Darren snagged the other Lycan on the way to the airport with the subtle threat to "move your ass and don't breathe a word to anyone." Darren looked out the window of the Konstantine jet and didn't see ocean, but he didn't know how close they were to Dublin Airport.
Reading Liam's thoughts would have been easy enough, if Darren hadn't happily discovered that he could block that ability. So, he hadn't been subjected to the "have you lost your fucking mind" lecture that Liam likely received from Lex. Or the "you let anything happen to him, I'll kill you, myself" that undoubtedly followed said lecture.
Darren spent the entirety of the flight thinking of his mate. The pain in her voice, on her face, and the tears in her eyes, all as a result of Darren not claiming her. Pain, he had his own. Not claiming her was a physical, mental hell--it was pain from head to toe. But, he had reasoned that he'd rather live with that pain, than put Cass through one second of his impressive--or not--collection of screw-ups. Not to mention, all the bullshit that came with being King.
I'd rather cut off my own head than cause her pain like I saw that day.
Which is why they were over European airspace, because Cass was in Ireland. She left to escape him.
Because seeing me hurt her.
"Darren, we're ten minutes out from Dublin."
Liam's voice cleared his guilt-filled thoughts. He ran his hands through his hair and realized he needed to go splash some water on his face. "Thanks."
"No problem."
A minute later, he stood in front of the mirror and frowned. One of his buddies in college looked like he was in a perpetual hangover. Darren's roommate used to tease the guy, telling him that he looked like he'd been ridden hard and put away wet. That saying pretty much summed up the reflection in the mirror.
Maybe I should stop off and get a haircut, buy a new shirt and jeans.
He probably would do that, if it didn't take much time. His primary objective was to find Cass and get them back to the plane as soon as possible. Hell, he might as well tell Liam to file a return flight plan for, what, five hours from now? Yeah, that should do it. He hated the thought of claiming his mate in the bedroom on the plane, but damned if he was going to wait to get back to Raleigh. And, they wouldn't be in Ireland for very long. Oh no. In and out, that was his plan. They'd be back in no time.

***

Liam kept up with Darren's footsteps, barely.
"Still don't understand why you wouldn't want another beer. That may have been the best I've ever had. We should take a European beer tasting trip, just for comparison, though. German ales are pretty damned good." They'd only gone in the last bar because Darren caught Cass's scent.
"Not interested." Glancing around the crowded Temple Bar section of Dublin, Darren wondered why Cass would be there. She was private, definitely not the type to hang out in tourist spots.
"Or we could just stay here and sample whiskey. All the whiskey."
Technically, that didn't sound like too bad of a plan, if he weren't searching for his missing mate. "You should get on your knees and thank God that you can't get cirrhosis."
Liam snorted just as Darren thought he'd, again, picked up on Cass's scent. He froze mid stride and almost took out a group of people. Peering inside the closest bar, he inhaled deeply and looked for her glossy black hair. Nada.
Shit.
Darren turned, making a complete circle so he could visualize everything around him. His frustration was growing. Cass was so close, and he needed to see her. Feel her. Wrap her in his arms. Drop to his knees and apologize for being a colossal ass. Spend the next century begging her forgiveness. Then spend the rest of his life making her happy.
The sounds of barf splattering the pavement shook him out of his thoughts.
"This"--he pointed down at the moaning human in front of him--"is what all the whiskey gets you."
Liam glanced down with disdain as they stepped around the human. "Not me." He waved a negligent hand. "Higher tolerance and all that."
"Mmm hmm." Looking around, again, Darren barely restrained a growl. Cass's scent grew fainter, and he was no damned closer to finding her.
Going to lose my motherfucking mind.
Material brushed his arm, and Darren snarled as his head snapped around. "Hey, do you mind holding my jacket while I tie my shoe?"
What the fuck? Darren snatched the jacket and Liam bent, after casting a pointed glare toward Darren's hands. Claws had already punched through the tips, and if he were a betting person, he'd put money on his eyes glowing. Taking a deep breath and closing his eyes, he slipped on his polarized Ray Bans, covered both fists with the jacket and willed himself to calm.
"No problem."
Biggest white lie ever. If Darren spent two more seconds out there without Liam's assistance, he'd likely have shifted and torn a bloody path through the Temple Bar district.
They needed to get out of public, check into a room and Darren needed to sleep off any jet lag. Then come sunrise, he'd try again.
Liam stood and cast a worried glance at Darren. "Okay?"
Not in the slightest. "Fine. Let's get something to eat, go find a room, and search again tomorrow."
Liam almost seemed to slouch in relief. "Sounds good. We'll hit the roads in the morning."
He confirmed that with a small nod. And I'll spend another sleepless night without her.

Review: Where Bad Boys Are Ruined (Good Girls #3) by Holly Renee


Release Date: December 5, 2018
Cover Design: Artist Regina Wamba
 

Synopsis

 
I ate leftover cupcakes and cracked macarons for breakfast.
I was ninety percent sure he simply ate up girls like me. I was covered in paint splatters, cake batter, and sweat the first time I met him. He was covered in badass tattoos and a smile that seemed to hold a secret I would never figure out. Rule number 1 was never, under any circumstances, fall for the man who I wrote my lease check to. So, I tucked him away in the “Fantasize Only” compartment of my brain and called it a day. But he didn’t make it easy. He was arrogant, funny, and the biggest flirt I had ever met. Most of the time, I didn’t know if I was just a game to him. If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was on a mission to ruin my life. And maybe my heart, too.

Goodreads


Review:

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars

When your heroine spends 2/3 of the book dating another man, how are you supposed to feel? That's what I kept asking myself. I wasn't happy that Charlie had another man in her life, even if she didn't sleep with him. Charlie's character is very prejudiced early in the book, which leads her to avoid Brandon in every way that she could. It was a little annoying after 1/3 of the book had passed because there was a lot of going back and forth action because of her mixed feelings. And that was also a shame because I really liked the rest of the book and the secondary characters, which are the couples from the two previous books, mostly. It was fun and light and an almost 5-star book. Brandon is making his feelings clear from early on and I couldn't help, but root for him. He did deserve a better treatment from Charlie. I didn't like the heroine, but I liked the rest of the people and almost all the plotlines in the story. Charlie's parents were very funny people. If you are ok with the heroine dating another man and then almost kissing and then kissing the hero, you will enjoy the book.

Title: FINDING MY GIRL

Author: Melissa Foster

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Finding My Girl:

FINDING MY GIRL / LOVING TALIA is a companion booklet to the contemporary romance novel, LOVE LIKE OURS (Sugar Lake series).   If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl / Loving Talia is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl / Loving Talia is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel. As a bonus, I have included the first chapter of Love Like Ours in the back of the booklet.   I hope you enjoy this quick, visual adaptation of Derek and Talia's journey into coupledom. To read their full-length love story, please buy Love Like Ours, a Sugar Lake novel (available in digital, paperback, and audio formats).   ~ Melissa

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

There is so much sweetness and love in this tiny book, that it made my teeth ache. I can't tell you how much I loved reading it and I will re-read it for sure! It's a great companion to Love like ours and a must read if you have read the book! It added the element to the story that I missing while I was reading the main story. I am giving it a nomination for my top books of 2018 simply because my heart fills with joy when I think of this book. It's Derek's ode to his relationship with Talia and his love for her. Don't try to read this book and expect a story or something else. It's Derek's sketches that were described in their book and finally, they got alive. You must read the book. Heck, even if you haven't read Talia and Derek's story you will enjoy this booklet!

Review: Wrapped in Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #4) by Lexi Ryan

WIL-BT BANNER.jpg
















Wrapped in Love by Lexi Ryan
Release Date: December 4th, 2018


wrapped_amazon.jpg


Wrapped in Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Lexi Ryan.
The rumors are true. I’m a hot mess with an awful track record at love. Single mom. Down on her luck. Yeah, I’m bad news.
If the hardest part of moving back home to Jackson Harbor was going to be people talking, I’d be fine. I’ve kept my chin up through worse than their decade-old gossip.
I was wrong. The hardest part is resisting my boss. Brayden Jackson is the very picture of tall, dark, and handsome. And thanks to an ill-advised one-night stand we had seven months ago, I know exactly what I’m missing when I turn him down. Every. Single. Delicious. Inch.
But I have my son to care for and my job to keep, so I’ll keep on saying no.
Until my string of bad luck continues, and suddenly my precious four-year-old and I find ourselves with nowhere to live. At Christmas, no less. It’s for my son that I accept Brayden’s offer to stay at his place. One by one, my defenses are falling, as fast as I am. If Brayden was smart, he’d run, because it’s only a matter of time before he realizes he deserves better than what a girl like me can offer.
Unless, for once, my bad luck is leading me exactly where I need to be.

Review:

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

It's time to write a review for this book and I tried to think of what I liked and what I didn't. The first thing that popped into my mind was Molly. Brayden might not think of her as broken, but I did. I think that she went through some really horrible situations and that she needed to talk to a professional about it. She has some self-destructive thoughts and actions and I truly felt like she was still trying to find her place in this world and peace. I think that she needed to have that development in her story and sadly, she didn't. Brayden has a lot of work ahead of him and I think that he deserved better. Let's be honest. The Jason situation didn't scream "I am a liberated woman", it said, "I am trying to find cheap ways to feel normal again". The dude was a douche. It's really a shame that I couldn't like the heroine. I didn't dislike her/hate her, but I also couldn't wrap my mind around her thoughts and feelings. If you can't understand/relate to the heroine, half of the game is lost. Thankfully, the hero and the secondary characters saved the day and the book was able to get 3-stars from me.



WIL-Teaser 10 AN.jpg


Excerpt:
“Oh, and this box wasn’t labeled. Where do you want it?” Brayden pulls open the flaps of the box he set on the bed when he entered. “Looks like there are some washcloths in here. And . . .” He lifts a stack of washcloths and peers at the contents beneath. His eyes go wide. “Oh.” The moment my brain registers what he’s looking at, I lunge for him and smack a hand over his eyes. I intentionally put that box in my car, separate from the others. And I forgot. Brayden’s chest rumbles with laughter, and I want the floor to open up and swallow me whole. Brayden Jackson just saw my entire vibrator collection. He gently pulls my hand away, revealing eyes full of mischief. I squeak. “Don’t look in that box again.” His lips twitch. “But I really, really want to.” I point a finger at him. “Don’t you dare.” He presses his lips into a thin line, amusement dancing in his eyes. Then, as if he can’t help himself, he asks, “Are they all pink?” “Shut up!” My cheeks are on fire. His voice is the softest caress of a whisper when he says, “Molly, your cheeks are almost as pink as your vibrators.” I smack both hands against his chest. “You did not just say that word!” “Vibrators?” He grins. Not one of his smirks or half smiles, but a grin, and damn me and my stupid chemical attraction to this man, because it makes me want to slam the bedroom door closed and climb him like a tree. “If you don’t like the word, why do you have—” I throw my hand over his mouth. “Don’t say it. We agreed we’d keep our relationship professional—that’s what we both wanted. So don’t say it. Don’t even think about it.” Then, because I realize his lips are pressed to my palm and it reminds me too much of our night in New York when his lips were everywhere, I back away. The warm amusement in his eyes turns to heat. “First of all,” he says, his voice like silky steel, “those were your rules, not mine. I agreed for you, not because that’s what I want.” He drags his gaze over me, and my heart pounds so fast it feels like a hummingbird’s trying to escape my chest. “Second, even if I tried not to think about you using your little collection of pink toys, I’d fail miserably.” He dips his head, and I can feel his breath against my ear as he says, “I’m already thinking about it, and I will be for a long time yet.”

Review: My Bad (Bear Bottom Guardians MC #4) by Lani Lynn Vale

       












Hoax knows two things very well. One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead. Does that stop him from wanting her? No. Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships don’t go hand in hand. But beautiful hazel eyes, curly blonde hair, and the prettiest lips he’s ever seen play havoc with his resolve, making him forget his earlier convictions. All it takes is one teeny, tiny kiss for every shred of control he has to disappear, along with the problem in his pants. Soon he finds himself doing things that he knows that he shouldn’t. He doesn’t know that he’s found the woman that’s meant to be his. Nor does he realize that her father is the man he’s idolized from the moment he joined the army at the age of eighteen. Because, maybe if he had, he would’ve tried a little harder to ignore the pull he felt between them instead of making her his the night before he deployed for six months. He also might’ve tried a little harder not to knock her up.

Review:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

After the chaos in Mess Me Up, I was very hesitant as to what this book would entail. Normally, I might have not given a chance to the book after MMU, but I liked the writing and the setting in that story, so I wanted to try this one too. I was very happy by the end of the book and I can say that it was worth the risk. It didn't have a lot of drama which is a plus in my book. I didn't want to see them fighting over the baby or her having to raise it alone for a while because Hoax had pushed her away for some silly reason. The story was satisfying and it had a nice pace. The characters were likable and I didn't have a single problem with either's behavior. I would have liked to see a scene where Pru actually examins Hoax for the little problem he had that made him go to the ER in the first place. It could have been a hilarious scene. I wouldn't like to think of my hero as someone who had a problem as he did and I was happy it was fixed quite early in the story. Finally, I must say that I loved the quotes or life hacks we got to read at the beginning of each chapter. Some made me even LOL and I don't do that frequently.

Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he’s also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate. If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind—as long as she doesn’t get too close to him.
With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?

Excerpt:

Nick looked at the dark drop of honey on her skin and his mouth watered. He licked his lips and looked into her eyes. The heat there made him want more. More moments like this with her. When there was no Enderley boxing them in, no duties that needed their attention. Just Mina and the odd, undeniable spark he’d felt between them from the day he arrived.

“I’d like a taste,” he told her quietly.
