Review: Roping Him, Kennedy Fox

An unforgettable
one-night stand filled with heat and passion starts the unraveling of a
love-hate feud between a small-town baker and an arrogant cowboy.

When Katarina shows up at the Circle B Ranch Bed &
Breakfast to serve her new gluten-free, sugar-free, organic pastries, Braxton
decides to make her life hell for kicking him out the next morning and then
pretending he never existed.

First step, make fun of her tasteless muffins.

Second step, get revenge.

Soon the duo are at each other’s throats, getting even until
things go too far and the chemistry burns too hot.

Kat claims their night together meant nothing.

He’s determined to prove her wrong.



Your typical Kennedy Fox book filled with heat, hates of passion and lots of love. It was so good to be back at the Bishop Ranch and get to see most of the other KF characters who live in Texas.

Braxton and Kat sure had fire in and outside the bedroom. Their story was short yes but fun as hell and Braxton wow, I never thought that man would be the type to get heartbroken but he sure did surprise me.

Kat well she took things to the extreme which I didn't like but it made things funs and Braxton sure didn't seem to mind much and sure liked to get payback. It made things interesting and well different. I didn't really get why she acted the way she did on the night they met and then didn't set things straight when they first saw each other again... things would have been so much easier but I guessed they wouldn't have been half as fun and well we all enjoy a little bit of fun. The bonus content was something I was super excited for and although I loved it, I'm kind of disappointed that it was so short, I wanted and craved more and I think these two deserved it too.

Roping the Cowboy was a fun and cute ride that will leave your mouth watering for more and cupcakes! I want more of these two and more of the whole Circle B Ranch crew. I cannot wait to get my hands on more of these cowboys. I just really loving being in this fictional place Kennedy Fox created, a place that feels real when my head is emerged withing these pages.

The Man I Need (Ward Duet, 2) by Shanora Williams
Release Date: June 13, 2019

There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.

He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.

The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.

Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…

But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

*This is the second, and final book in the Ward Duet. You must read The Man I Can't Have before reading The Man I Need. 


I thought something had been wrong with me for taking almost a week to read a book when I finally had all the time in the world to read but then this baby hit my kindle and I almost read it in one stitting; the only reason I didn't was because I need my sleep and 4 am was my limit that night. But boy did these two reel me in and have a hold one on me until the very end. This story was so gripping and moving. I loved it so much.

Gabby is living through an awful situation and you'll get to see it all happen through her eyes, so yes the first few chapters are not easy to read, specially if you may have triggers. But Gabby is a strong af woman and she is worth more than the money are parents may lose with her separation from Kyle. He tries like heck to force her to stay but she is smart and she finds an escape with the help of her friends and Marcel.

Marcel is her rock through the whole process of leaving and getting a divorce. He is always there to help her through it all but things are not at all easy, there are a lot of bumps on the road, lows and highs and surprises along the way.

The Man I Need is a much angstier and emotional book than the first but it is also much more beautiful and touching and I just love the story Shanora told with Gabby and Marcel. These two together were amazing and perfect for each other. I think Shanora really outdone herself with this book. That ending man, I just love how we got a really big and happy ending and just got to see them enjoy life together and living their happy. I don't know, I think the end of this book seriously sated know when most of the time you get a real small epilogue and things just end a bit open-ended? Well, I felt like this one wasn't like that, and it was pretty darn perfect. I mean, I would still love to read more about these two because I enjoyed them so much but I really think their ending was pretty percfect. We got to see it all happen and see Marcel being a cute romantic fella.

Review: Bad Influence, Charleigh Rose

Title: Bad Influence
Series: Bad Habits
Author: Charleigh Rose
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 13, 2019


When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.


I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.


I literally just finished this baby this morning and I'm still processing this wonderful and addictive story. Jesse was so freaking hot! I love him and I really loved Allie. She was kind of fierce and I just really digged her, I want to be her bff and go to shows together.

These two had a sort of meet cute, even though it technically wasn't the first time they met. Jess is trying to keep one of his sicko hook-ups away from him and so he uses Allie has his fake girlfriend and that's how it all begins. Allie thought she would rarely see him again after that encounter since he's going to college two hours away but a lot happens in Jess's life and suddenly he is back in River's Edge for good. Allie just moved to town too and she now works at Lo's bar - Blackbear - so she's bound to see Jesse a lot especially when he comes over to give Lo a hand and help around.

There is so much to these two I can't even. They both have events in the past they are trying to get through. Allie lost her dad, her bestfriend not even a year ago and she's still very heartbroken especially now that she is back in the town where she spent all her time with him.She fnds herself basically alone in the world because her mother is barely ever there for her but at leaxst she hass a couple of friends in River Edge.
Jesse just lost something important to him and he tests his relationship with his sister over it. He is very complex. He is living a double life and no one knows half of what's going on. The person he shows to the world is a mask, a mask he uses to hide his feelings and his true self. His past messed him up real good and it's still messing with his head even now. He feels unworthy of all good things and that kinda broke my heart. Behind his manwh*re life and all the partying, Jesse is such a good guy and has such a big heart, I love him so much. Allie shows him how good his life could be, she gives him a piece of heaven, a retrieve, a solace and she gives him love. She is one of the only ones who can see the real him and see how the person he puts out in the world isn't really him. 

Allie lets Jesse in, with the pretense that she can fool around with him and lose her V-card without any feelings involved, she gives in. I mean Jesse is the perfect candidate right, he's a manwhore?! At first it's just fooling around here and there, no sex but when her living situation is ruined, she finds herself sleeping at Blackbear until Lo finds her and offers her and Dare's place for her to stay until her grandma's house is available. After she moves in, Jesse decides to move back in too. He's pretty smart let me tell you. Now, under the same roof, it's much easier to hook up and spend time together... and for feelings to grow. These two I swear. I loved getting to know them and see them become much more than the friends with benefits they thought they'd be. And gah Jesse is absolute fire, that man!! 

Bad Influence is an amazing story of love and finding the person who will make you see your worth. Jesse and Allie's story was much more than what I had been expecting. There is angst and there's so much emotion, I loved how these two broken souls found each other and helped each other through the bad stuff in their lives. This couple is GOLD and I will forever love them. And we cannot forget the insane chemistry they had and all the moments that will leave you scorching. Jesse sure knows how to please a woman! Allie lucked out real good (; You can be sure you'll never look at a lollipop the same way, I know I won't, not without remembering these two.

OTR Cover FINAL.png
Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.
That’s what Mama told me when I was a kid, kicking his pew in church and giggling at the games we’d play. It’s what the town said when his father died and the Becker brothers went wild.
And it’s on repeat in my mind the day I walk into the whiskey distillery where he works to buy a wedding gift for my fiancé.
He’s trouble.
Dirty, sweaty, rude trouble.
No matter how many times I repeat it, I can’t escape Noah in our small Tennessee town. And the more I run into him, the more he infuriates me. Because he sees what no one else does.
He sees me—the real me.
The me I’m not sure I’m allowed to be.
I’m Ruby Grace Barnett, the mayor’s daughter. Soon to be a politician’s wife, just like Mama and Daddy always wanted. Soon to fulfill my family’s legacy, just like I always knew I would.

Cover Reveal: Coming Up Roses, Staci Hart

Coming Up Roses, an all-new enemies to lovers romantic comedy from Staci Hart is coming August 1st, and we have the beautiful cover!

Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint.
When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.

Author: Lylah James

Publisher: Limitless Publishing LLC
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance/Adult Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 11, 2019


I've lived in the darkness for so long.
No life. No choice.

The Devil owned me, body and soul - but not my heart. It was the only part of me which could never be claimed...

...or so I thought.

Viktor weaved his way into my heart and imprinted on my soul. He made it clear he was there to stay. Even when the darkness blinded us, he never left my side.

What we share was sweet, untamed and wild.
But it was forbidden, dangerous and the outcome would only be painful.

A game is being played. The arena is a bloodbath, and the Game Masters are brutal. In the end, only one will survive.

Only one King will be left standing.

Goodness gracious, this woman does not play. Well, besides with our emotions, she does do a lot of that and she did it a lot in Viktor's books. I gotta say I survived a couple of heart attacks and many chapters spent in a deep anxiety over knowing the fate of this and that character.

Lylah never fails to amaze me with that plotting brain of hers. Her plots are full proof and filled with all the twists and turns that have my heart doing severe palpitations. She has given me the biggest 'WHAT? NO' 'PLEASE DON'T' 'OH GOD, NO NO NO' moments in all my bookworm history... she always always has a trick up her sleeve and will play it when you least expect it. Expect a lot of all that in this book. Lylah sure loves to make her readers suffer, whether it's leaving us hanging in the middle of an important meeting, whether it's not knowing for like 10 chapters whether a character is dead or not or you know just killing a character out of nowhere and making it a kind of emotional you were not expecting in the middle of all the chaos. Seriously, you will not make it through this book without suffering a little (or a lot if you're like me).

However, not all Lylah's strategies are 'negative' for us... if you've read her you know she gives the good stuff no matter how crazy things might get. Expect a lot of love and heat. Watching Viktor find and fall to his knees for his Mishka is nothing short of amazing. Getting to see him find what he always lusted after (and got jealous over) is out of this world. And just learning every little detail of how it come to be and how Fate played a hand in it all. And let's not forget how you learn secrets and things that tie to some of the other books. The details just freaking get to me. Just God, I applaud you Lylah James, I applaud you so hard! You are brilliant!

If you've read Alession and Ayla's story, you need to read Viktor and Valeries's too okay? You need to see and experience how deep their brotherhood is. Viktor and his Mishka have just as an amazing love story as Alessio and his Angel did - tragic, emotional and heartwrenchingly beautiful. Viktor was freaking brilliant! You get to see him fall, you get to see him weak and hurt and still he comes out on top. Things might not all go exactly to plan, he might get surprised left and right but he always finds a way to make the most of it and turn things back around in his favor. That man, even faced with the hardest choice of his life, managed to surprise us all, come out on top, get the cake and eat it too (well after a couple casualites along the way). You definitely get to experience how complex Viktor his, you get to be inside his brain and learn all his secrets and thoughts and most of see all his viciousness, his vileness for those who have wronged him and the ones he loves. He was so bada**. I digged it so much.

Lylah gave us some bread crumbs on Maddie and Phoenix but they tasted very bitter, specially knowing how long I'm gonna have to wait for their book since Nikolay and Evaline are next and only in 2020. My soul is weeping. The wait will feel like 87 years. But you know I am still excited for them as well, I mean each book is never just about the main characters, it's about all the Tainted Heart characters with surprise chapters in other character's povs (which I freaking love), where you get to see where they are at, both as person and as a couple, and also you get to see how every character plays a part in each other's life. I love that, I really loved to see both Viktor's friendship with the King but specially the Queen... I love the bond he has with Ayla.

The Mafia and his Obsession Part Two was beyond amazing. Lylah's writing continues to astonish me, she keeps getting better and better, her words are just poetic magic. If you're used to Lylah's writing and know what to expect from her others Tainted Heart books, know that more of that is coming your way, more of that times double! And if you're new to her, I will leave you with these parting words: Expect the unexpected.

Viktor bucked upward, his shaft pressing into me, right
where I needed him.  

“You look so fucking beautiful like this,” he muttered thickly. “Flushed, eyes
fluttering closed in pleasure, gasping for your next breath, body shuddering.
Totally and completely lost in your desire.” 

He rubbed against me…oh…so exquisitely slow. So deliciously slow. My lips
parted, a silent moan escaping me. 

“I have seen you happy. Laughing, smiling. I have seen you sad, in tears. I
have seen many sides of you. Your daily expressions. When you wake up. Before
you go to sleep. While sleeping. But this…𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴
is my favorite sight of you, Valerie. When you let go…and let yourself feel the
pure, unadulterated lust. When you let me make you feel things…dirty filthy
things, when you lose that tight control you’ve got.”

Viktor sat up and my eyes closed as his lips found my throat, kissing and
sucking at the sensitive skin there. I was helpless, but I didn’t want to fight
this—not anymore.  

“I have missed seeing you blush like this.” His voice vibrated through my body,
and I started to feel hotter, tighter, my skin itching with 𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘥.  

He ran his hand up and down my sides before moving to my back. His fingers slid
up my spine, leisurely, so slowly…I started to twitch in his arms, rubbing
harder against him. My pussy clenched, and I swore I felt the sparks throughout
my body. Viktor started to thread his fingers into my hair. He fisted it in his
hand and pulled my head back.  

“Open your eyes,” he whispered harshly.  

The moment I opened my eyes, my gaze landed on his. His dark ones were filled
with heat, and they were intense. I had to blink and look away.
