Secrets Behind Those Eyes by SM Donaldson

 
**REVIEW**
 
                                   **We were lucky enough to win an ARC of this book**
 
This is Scarlet's story. In book 3 of the "Temptation" series, Cade learns that he has a half brother and sister. I suggest that you read the "Temptation" series, not that you need to but you meet the other characters from those books in this one. Plus, that series is amazing!!!! Lying with Temptation(#1), Acting on Temptation(#2) and Fighting Temptation(#3).
 
Scarlet is a middle class woman who is getting ready to go to school. She walks in on her boyfriend doing something she never thought that he would do. She went crazy. I have to say, I was literally cracking up at that part.
 
Ryder... sweet Jesus did I swoon! Yeah, he's a bad boy but he has a good side!! He has money and was constantly getting into trouble.
 
Scarlet and Ryder meet at community service. She keep blowing him off, only making him want her more.
 
Her brother, Gable, has always been close to her. He ends up touring with his band. She misses him a lot.
 
Bad stuff starts to happen and she has no idea who it could be... until she does.
 
I read a snippet of this book at the end of "Fighting Temptation". I really didn't want it to end. I wanted/ needed more!! I love Scarlet and Ryder. I thought Ryder was gonna crap his pants when he met Cade!!! Ha! I am glad that Cade and the gang were in this book! I missed them!!! I am also eager to know more about Gable!! Suspense is a killer, Ill tell ya!!
 
The way the author writes is just amazing. She knows what she is doing! Im ready for the next book now!!! :)

5 out of 5 stars!

ADD IT TO YOUR TBR LIST!!! TRUST ME, YOU WILL WANT TO!

**COVER REVEAL** How To Save A Life by Amber Nation

Title: How to Save a Life (A Brown County Novel)

Author: Amber Nation

Release: June 3, 2014

Goodreads Link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21939624-how-to-save-a-life?from_search=true






                                                                          Synopsis:

Mike Jameson’s world came crashing down around him and he has refused to let anyone else in since. Running through the daily motions of life he keeps himself busy, whether it was being the drummer for The Nation’s Capital, working on vehicles, or being a paramedic. His one goal in life has been to save lives, but he has no idea that it's his life that needs saving.

 
Sheridan Nichols makes an unexpected appearance in Brown County on her way out of the nightmare she was living. One fateful night, she is hit by a drunk driver and left injured and stuck in a strange town now without a car. Mike steps up to the plate and volunteers to let her stay at his house, and in the process, volunteers his heart as well. 


Friendships form and chemistry ignites and after one passionate night Mike thought things between the two of them were about to change. But Sheridan hides a secret, one which is ultimately a game-changer. When her past catches up with her, will she have to rely on herself or will explanations and apologies be enough to salvage things? In the end, will they discover that by being together they save each other's life?

                                                                         Excerpt:

I was done pretending that there was absolutely nothing between us. I just knew that in the end one or the both of us would get our world ripped apart and our heart broken, but then there was that little chance that everything would turn out perfectly alright. I wanted to believe in that little chance. I wanted that little chance to expand into something amazing and my worrying to end up being a nonexistent glimmer of doubt.

I felt completely stripped bare and all of my emotions towards this man were being brought to true light. I couldn’t hold back another second longer.

This was finally it, the moment that I would give into everything that I had sworn against. The stage lights faded out and the house lights came on but dimmer than before and music began streaming through the strategically placed speakers once the band exited the stage.

I didn’t know how long it would be until Mike came out and found me but I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it would happen.

I left Tessa where she was standing and went to discard my empty glass back at the bar and as soon as I sat the glass on the counter, I felt a light tap on my shoulder and a warm breath at my ear that instantly made a shiver run down my spine, "I bet you could play this song much better on the piano."

I hadn’t even noticed that Faithfully by Journey had come on through the speakers, I was so into my own head trying to decide the next step between the two of us. I turned around and looked straight into Mike’s eyes, the vulnerability and raw passion that was reflecting back at me was enough to take my breath away. He was so unbelievably beautiful, every single bit of him down to his deeply hidden emotional scars. I pulled my bottom lip in between my teeth as he took my hand and led me to the center of the makeshift dance floor.

He pulled me close to where one of his hands was curved around my waist while the other held one of my hands on his chest between us. "Dance with me, Sheridan," he said huskily. It wasn’t a request, it was more of a command. You could tell that he was definitely feeling the effects of being so close to me. I wrapped my free hand around his shoulder and rested my chin up on it as we just swayed to the beat of the song.

It really brought a smile to my face whenever he began softly singing the words in my ear while he drew tiny circles on my lower back. I would’ve never been one to peg Mike for the singing type, but he had a beautiful tone. To hear him sing about being only mine, it almost made me believe it. I closed my eyes and just enjoyed this time that we had, being enraptured by the moment. 





                                                                     Author Bio:

I am a wife, mother of two beautiful girlies, an avid reader, and a new Romance and New Adult author.

I was born and raised in Southern Indiana, but resided in Texas for five years while my husband was in the US Army. It was definitely a journey, but I am so glad to be back in my home state.

Whenever I'm not doing my motherly duties or at the soccer field I absolutely love to read whenever I have a moment to spare. My kindle is never far from my side.

My love of reading increased about a year ago and due to my love of books I decided to try my hand at writing. Already having a set of characters screaming to get out, my story took over and came to life.

Asher (Inked Brotherhood #1) by Jo Raven

**COVER TO COME SOON**

**We were gifted a copy by the author in exchange for an honest opinion**
 
Audrey was in an accident that killed her father. Her and her mother moved away. She moves back to start college with her friends. She tries to keep to herself. She doesn't want to run into Asher, a boy who broke her heart.
 
Asher did not have a normal childhood. With his brother leaving and his mother dying, he is left to deal with his abusive father.
 
This is not your typical love story where its all lovey dovey and roses! This is the exact opposite!
 
From the first page, I couldn't help but be drawn in. I have never read a book by this author, but let me just say, that she DID NOT disappoint!! The things that poor Asher had to deal with literally broke my heart!!! I felt for him! It was such a shame to what he had to endure. He never told anyone. His best friend Zane was always there for him but he never said a word.
 
I am really looking forward to reading more about Zane. I kinda have a crush on him!!
 
I am glad that Audrey got over the fact that nothing was Asher's fault! She seemed selfish to me at first.
 
I think that the author did a really good job! I am really looking forward to reading more about the crew!!!

Bender by Stacy Borel



Review


What can I say about this book? Well lets just say that Stacy Borel DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!
 
I was waiting... very impatiently I add... for this book to go live! You know when you turn out to be an Amazon stalker, waiting to one click? Yeah that was totally me!! I wont deny it!!!
 
Ok, so Keegan is usually left to take care of her sister and her studies are taking a toll because of it. Her best friend, Macie, suggests that she moves out to gain some freedom. She looks at a few and the final one is a good one to her. The good looking guy, Dodger, shows her everything. He is friendly and she likes it there... Little does she know that its actually his brothers place. I seriously laughed out loud when Camden appeared, with his rude and ignorant self!
 
Now, there's Camden, Dodgers brother. At first I laughed, then I wanted to punch him and then I swooned. Yes, in that exact order!!! He was arrogant and had a chip on his shoulder! I wanted to smack him! I have no idea how she even dealt with him for that long!
 
I am not even going to get into the rest because I would literally tell the entire story!!
 
The cover is just.... WOW!!! Shawn Dawson is a major hottie. Totally and undeniably lickable! Yes, I said lickable. I mean have you seen that man?! Whew!! You are perfect for the cover Shawn!! Yum!
 
You NEED to read this like ASAP!! It's absolutely amazing!!! You will not be able to put it down!!
 
Stacy, you once again have made me want to hug you, throw my kindle and make out with the cover all at the same time!!! You are PHENOMENAL at what you do! Please, don't ever stop writing!! EVER!!!
 
Cannot wait to read the next book!!
 
This book deserves more than 5 stars!! A million stars is what it should get!

Untamed (Part 1) by Victoria Green & Jinsey Reese



REVIEW


**We were provided a copy by the author in exchange for an honest opinion**
 
This is part 1 of a 7 part series.
 
Reagan has been told how to act and what to do her entire life. She hates it. She just wants to be free. She meets Dare and her world starts to change.
 
Dare is carefree. He has been dealt a crappy hand. He helps take care of his siblings and mother.
 
Let me just say, that this book, completely blew me away. It may be a short read, but I certainly didn't want it to end!! The authors capture everything you are looking for!!! The way the characters are written is just beyond words to me. I literally felt as if I was in the book!!!! I really felt for Reagan! Her parents are such snobs and hypocrites! I wanted to smack them!!!
 
 
 
If the rest of the series is anything like this one, I CANNOT wait to read the others!!! Trust me, yall do not want to miss out on this!! The authors definitely know what they are doing!! Seriously, this was amazing Tors and Jins!!!
 
5 out of 5 stars!!

Saving Us by Ashley Johnson



**Review**

**I was gifted a copy by the author**
 
This book... DAMN! Seriously! Not even joking!
 
Sybil is an only child. Her parents died when she was younger and her Grandmother took care of her. She smart and witty. She just wants to finish school. She isnt looking for love. Love actually finds her... well bumps into her.... and then tragedy strikes. It leaves her heartbroken. She doesn't know how to go on. With the help of her friends she is able to regain her strength.
 
This is not her typical "Awe" story at all...
 
I am not even going to attempt to say anymore because it would spoil the entire book. This book is no joke and will have you wanting to throw your kindle. You will cry, laugh and LOVE the hell out of this book! The songs... oh man, the songs in this book are beyond perfect and it really gets to you!!!! Within the very first page, I was drawn in! You know the type of book that your up all night reading... Yup this is that book!!! The characters are spot on as is the story!! The author is absolutely AMAZING!!! I thought "Spurs & Stilettos" was amazing, but this is phenomenal!! I seriously have a lady boner for the author! No lie!! I recommend this book to everyone!!! Get your fingers one-clicking this asap!! You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you Ashley Johnson for writing such a fantastic book!!!!
 
This book is beyond a 5 star read for me!

Annie is a hard working 20 year old college student who also works at Walton's full time. She is very independent and has to have control.

This book definitely deserves 5 stars!

Underestimated Too by Jettie Woodruff




 ***Review***

This book is to be read after you read Underestimated!!

I thought when i started this book it was going to be like other POV books where it's more or less the same story, just from a different POV.

I was very excited to see that the book picked up where Underestimated left off giving us more of Drew and Morgan's story, along with Drew's POV!!!! And lets just say Drew has no filter and definitely tells it like it is!

An amazing story that takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride... love, hate, grief, laughter are just a few emotions that you will be feeling while you read this book!

Once again the sex scenes were amazing and couldn't get enough! Jettie you continue to up your game and never disappoint!!!

We give this book 5 stars!!

We give this book 5 out of 5 stars

The Groundbreaking by Deanndra Hall

Author: Marissa Carmel  
Genre: New Adult  
Release Date: June 1, 2014
Cover: Cover Me, Darling  
*Author Note- Stripped From You can be read as a stand-alone novel, but the author suggests reading Strip Me Bare first.






 
Goodreads Link:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18484521-stripped-from-you?from_search=true  

Synopsis:
 
You know how it ends, now see how it all began…   "It doesn't matter how many women touch this body, only one woman has ever touched this soul."  

Ryan Pierce doesn't come from much, doesn't ask for much, and doesn't expect much. And he's come to accept that, until, Alana Remington. Alana is the girl who struck the match that lit his world on fire. She's the girl who opened his eyes to more. Who made him believe that just because you have nothing, doesn't mean you are nothing. And he loves her fiercely for it. But, just because you come together, doesn't mean you stay together. One fateful decision rips Ryan and Alana apart and neither of them are ever the same again.  

For five years he's regretted that decision, but the deep seeded anger, shame and resentment has kept him from reaching out. And over those five years, a series of moments have spun Ryan's world in a direction he never saw coming. A world ruled by endless nights, infinite women and the name Jack the Stripper. A world, unbeknownst to him, that may just let two severed hearts collide.    





Excerpt:  

"Do you trust me?"

"Of course not, I just met you."

  "Then how about giving me the benefit of the doubt?"

She raises an eyebrow at me, and before I give her a chance to respond I slam the shot then pull her face to mine. And as my mouth covers hers, heat rapidly spreads through my body. She's momentarily stunned. Her body is rigid against me, but then she relaxes, parts her lips and lets the tart liquid slide into her mouth.

  I can't believe I just did that.

  I can't believe she just let me.

After she swallows, she lets her lips linger, sucking up the taste of the sweet shot, causing my nervous system to shift into hyper-drive. We break apart slowly, but I refuse to let go of the nape of her neck. She just stares up at me with these enthralling eyes I know I'll never be able to resist.

  "Do you always break the rules?" she asks.

"No, not usually, but you seem to make me want to do crazy things."

  "Was that crazy?"

"Let's do it again and find out."

  I lick my lower lip, tasting the sweet remnants of her lip gloss before I drop another shot. I pause for just a beat before lean down and press my mouth back to hers and let the alcohol flow between us. I flick my tongue against her teeth right before I pull away. I shouldn't like this so much, but I do. I like the way she looks, the way she feels, they way she smells. There's something about her, something ventilating; like she oxygenates the atmosphere.

  I catch the cool beats to a song I recognize pumping though the air. "Do you want to dance?" I ask her.

"You can dance?"

"There's only one thing I can do better."

 I smirk. Alana cocks her eye brow suggestively.

  "Draw." I fire back. "The only thing I can do better is draw. Dirty girl." I tease as I grab her hand and lead her out to the dance floor knowing Mac will look after our drinks.

Once we find a comfortable spot, I start to move to the smooth rhythm, leaving a little room between us so it doesn't feel like I'm forcing myself on her. Drake sings coolly about hot love and affection as we move in sync to the beat, our bodies brushing and grazing as the music plays on, then finally coming together in a comfortable unison. I wrap one hand around her waist as I roll my hips into hers, pressing our bodies as close as they can possibly get. Alana runs her hands up my chest and hooks her arms lightly around my neck keeping tempo with the music. She moves lithely against me, inducing my heart, thoughts, and pulse to race. Fuck, I'm drowning in want for this girl. I slide my hands up under her shirt and caress the smooth, soft skin of her lower back as she nuzzles her face into my neck, her warm breath skating across my collarbone, making me instantly hard.

  Damn.

  She lifts her head and meets my stare, which I know is filled with lust and unrepentantly wanton. She bites her lower lip, our bodies still jiving to the slow seductive music. In a brazen move, I slip my hand up the back of her bare thigh and cup her ass cheek under the hem of her short shorts. She gasps as I work my fingers against her, massaging the fleshy part of her bottom. I'm absolutely aching being this close to her, touching her, stroking her, grinding against her.

  "Are you sure drawing is the only thing you can do better?" she pants in my ear.

Capturing Peace by Molly McAdams

 
*REVIEW*
 
                               Once again Molly has left me a wreck! A wreck I tell ya!!
 
Reagan got pregnant at a young age and her douche boyfriend at the time told her she would ruin both their lives and to get rid of it. With the help of her family, She was able to care for her son. She got a job and became the best mom she could. She wasn't looking for love. Heck, she didn't even think she had time for love! All she wanted was for her son, Parker to have the best.
 
Coen Steele is her brothers best friend. He has demons and tries to fight them. He rarely sleeps. He's heard all about Reagan from her brother, but hasn't met her. Until she turns into him. Literally!! That cracked me up! Coen is just.... how do I explain this? Sex on a stick? Swoonworthy? Hot? Arrogant? Alpha? Hell, he is all of the above and then some!!
 
 
Reagan and Coen definitely had their ups and downs. There fights were not pretty at all. You put an alpha and a stubborn woman together and what do you get? Peace. At least for them .
 
This story just hit me hard. Just like all the other books by this absolutely amazing author, she captures EVERYTHING!! The emotions, the story.. just everything. You cannot help but fall in love with her books and characters!! Once again, Molly has done an OUTSTANDING job. Her books just get better and better!! 
 
In this, you catch a glimpse of Brody, Coen's other best friend, who will be in "Sharing You". My heart broke for him so bad. I am looking forward to reading this!
 
 
Molly, you have once again kicked ass with your amazing skills. And this cover!!! OMG!! It is just beyond words for me!! Its amazing and Tyler is just sexy as hell!  You are a favorite author of mine and each time I read a book of yours, I am completely blown away!! Seriously, a standing ovation for you because you deserve it!
 
5 million Stars for this book!!!!!

Evil of Love by N L Echeverria



 
**We were provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion**
 
Stephanie grew up in an abusive household. Her dad was a drunk and her mother wasn't any better. She found comfort in Eric. The only person to ever show her love. They became a couple at 15. They were together for 2 years before she introduced him to her parents. Her dad didn't like it at all. Shortly after that, her parents shipped her off to her aunts house. She had no way to contact Eric.
 
Eric loved Stephanie with everything that he had. Its been ten years since he last seen her. He sees her at the flea market and is amazed that after all the searching her did, she was there. He finds out that she is married to someone who is just like her dad. He tries to help her.
 
This story really blew me away. From the very first page, I was drawn in. The author really captured all the emotions for the characters. I love that on some parts it was told in another's POV. The story about love conquering all is just amazing. Eric never once gave up on his love for her and that love is all Stephanie has really known. True love. I think the author did a really good job! We rate this book 4 out of 5 stars!

Just Dessert by Kelly Collins



 
***We received this book for an honest review***

Were do I even begin....this book was just WOW!!! Let me just say dessert is always yummy!!!

Katarina or Kat is a beautiful college student who has a lot going for her, she is sweet, open and honest. Her room mate Emma is a escort who gives her time in exchange for money. Emma double booked so she begs Kat to go, she finally agrees and will be escorted to the charity function by Damon Noble.
 
Damon is sex on a stick! He is a wealthy bachelor and a successful businessman who is not interested in relationships. The sexual chemistry between these two characters is very hot, and watching the tension rise was a lot of fun. I loved that they were each willing to experiment with the fantasies of the other. It added an extra level of steam to everything. The supporting characters in this story were also characters that I came to care about.


We highly recommend this book for those looking for a steamy page turner!!! We give this 5 delicious stars!

Spurs & Stilettos by Ashley Johnson

 
**REVIEW**
 
So where do I begin...Brad is a complete *ss and doesn't care about anyone's feeling but his own! I seriously wanted to ring his neck! 
 
Hope is a beautiful young lady who use to be so full of life until 2 years ago tragedy struck and her sister was killed in a car accident. Hope is trying to deal with her sisters death and the guilt of being the only survivor. If it wasn't for her best friend Amber she would be lost.

Amber is crazy, fun, and really down to earth, she takes Hope out for a fun weekend and in turn meets a sexy *ss Wesley! Yummy!! Wesley is a Bronco riding cowboy, he's sweet, passionate, and a gentleman with a panty dropping smile!!!

Hope and Wesley's connection was undeniable! When they were together sparks started to fly!!! The sex scenes were scorching!!! Like everything else drama always get in the way.

I love how fate played a part in this story it was very touching and I could emotionally connect with the characters. Ashley has such amazing talent! She didn't disappoints me and I'm really looking forward to reading more of her work!
