Mini reviews: Jayne Frost, Sixth Street Bands Series Special


Gone For You (Sixth Street Bands #1)

As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and me are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters. 

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.


So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.
Simple, right?

Thoughts



Gone For You was a light and fast read, and fast not just in the way that you can read this in a couple of hours but fast also in how things go between Lily and Cam. 

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy this book a lot and I loved meeting all the men and seeing them in action. It was super fun and hot but when it comes to romance everything really happened super fast, that in no way affects my opinion of the book. I'm just letting all of you that get put out by this stuff know.


“Lily…” I growled when the first spasm of my release hit me. “You feel it… Fuck, baby.” She was all around me. She was everywhere and everything. My mouth was on her neck, breathing her in and tasting her as I pushed so far inside I didn’t ever want to leave. Loosening my grip, I rested my forehead against her shoulder, the sights and sounds and movement of our surroundings dragging me back to the now. Pulling her back when she went to move, I held her tight. “Stay,” I breathed. Stay with me. Today. Tomorrow. I tried to see beyond that. But I couldn’t.


Cam falls in lust with Lily as soon as he lays eyes on her and as much she tries to stay away from him, it doesn't take him long to win her over and have her any way he can have her. 
However, in a matter of a couple of days, feelings start growing and although both of them have their own issues, Cam doesn't know how to be in a relationship and Lily had her own insecurities, they find in themselves the gut to try.

“I’m not teasing you, darlin’.” Holding her gaze in the mirror, I nuzzled her ear. “Before you get all starry eyed, you should know I haven’t had a girlfriend since the eleventh grade. So I probably suck at it.” She turned in my arms, the blue of her eyes quieting my every doubt. But her frown remained. “Try not to hurt me, Cam.” Laying a hand over my heart, she kissed me softly. “Please try.”


There are a couple of hiccups on the way, Cam's life is not easy. A life in the spotlight is anything but black and white, and rock stars seem to call even more drama and all that comes with a learning curve. 


Purchase



Fall With Me (Sixth Street Bands #2)

Love isn’t an emotion—it’s a chemical reaction.  

Like gasoline meeting a flame. Eventually, the fire burns out. 

Luckily I’m in the right business. Women don’t expect more than I can give.  

When I meet Melody, I’m on board for a little fun. 

I admit, she’s under my skin. But since we share the same philosophy there’s no chance this will turn into anything more. 

Is there?

Thoughts


Christian turned out to be such a surprise. A sexy rockstar who is also a geek, double hotness! He definitely surprised me. I really enjoyed his story. 
However, this was such an insta love and I don't really like how fast things go in those. Giving that, the story was short but definitely sweet. 
Melanie at first glance was a total bitch but she was hiding her soft behind that attitude. Her life was anything but simple, having diabetes and a sick grandmother who is the only family she has left made her through up a wall to protect her heart. But that is nothing Christian can't crack, not even when his insecurities get in the way. These two were nothing but soft and watching them together was heart warming and sweet.



Purchase

Missing From Me (Sixth Street Bands #3)
One mistake. Four years of regret.  A second chance worth fighting for.
When I traded one dream for another, she was the price. My Anna. But I never forgot her. Never let go. And no amount of drumming could drown out my love for her. Her music is in my head. 
Still...Always...
And when I see her again, it's so clear. Anna is mine. She'll always be mine. I just have to convince her.


Thoughts
Sean was my favorite. I just loved him. 
I live for second chance romances and this one was just too good. Oh I was living for the angst too.

I loved watching Sean transform before my eyes. It was hard for him to learn the truth but he totally came through on being a decent guy and making up for lost time. I loved watching them all together.

Logan kind of got on my nerves a little at times, which got me even more excited to read his book. I can't wait to get inside his head and his heart and understand his actions.



Purchase


Lost For You (Sixth Street Bands #4)

When I was eighteen, I stood at the precipice of stardom. I had the record deal. And the tour to back it up. But I succumbed to the pressure of that life. The dark side. 
Now, I skate on the fringe. My brother is the genius guitarist for the band Caged, and I’m the one who helped make that happen. I’m happy to run my bars and my land development company. 

Sure I am.

And then I meet her—Taryn Ayers—the music manager behind the three biggest bands in the country. She doesn’t know I’m Cam’s older brother. Or that I’ve got a secret that makes her world and mine fundamentally incompatible. 

Problem is, I want to know Taryn.
But do I want her to know me? 


Thoughts


This was my second favorite book of the series, up until now that is, and again thanks to the angst. And this book got me even more curious about Logan. I'm dying for his book and to learn more about Tori and everything to do with her tragic past. I have a feeling it'll be my favorite.


Chase had a dark past and was still dealing with his demons, add in Taryn and her own demons and it was recipe for disaster. They let themselves succumb to their own demons, making it very hard for them to be together. But Chase, once again, was strong enough to fight his addiction and to help Taryn fight her fears. And boy were they beautiful together. I loved these two and watching them overcome the shitty aspects of life they'd both been given. 

They had both been through a lot when they met, and they each acted like each other's balm and it was beautiful. These two were so special. I just loved them. 


Purchase



Down to You (Sixth Street Bands #5)


She started from perfect. A star who shone brighter than the rest. 

But then fate took it all away. 
Now she's broken. 
A beautiful song with a fractured beat. 

But I'm still on the rise. 
Chasing a dream that she's already left behind. 
If I'm lucky, I can find my redemption in the spotlight.

Destiny brought us together. 
Put her in my path.

It started with a road trip. But somewhere along the line, it became a journey from here to there.
Maybe she can help me. 
Maybe we can help each other. 
Maybe music is enough. 
Maybe.

Every story deserves a soundtrack. 
And ours is epic.


Out on September 4th!


Review: The Perfect Duet, Meghan Quinn




The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30

For better or for worse,'til death do us part . . .

The better captured me; she's who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away--kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse--even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, 'til death do us part.

The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.






REVIEW

I'm gonna keep this short because nothing about this duet should be spoiled, read nothing besides the blurb and go in blind from there. 
I know that most of you who read or just heard about the Blue Line duet are very scared and upset but guys GIVE THIS DUET A CHANCE. I was scared too and believe me I was mad too about the events of the other duet, it still hurts but once you read this duet you will get it. I am astonished. I was not expecting to love this duet SO much. Honestly, I knew I had to read it because my baby needed his HEA and I was not going to miss it. 

But honestly everything about this duet was perfect!! P-E-R-F-E-C-T. I could cry tears of happiness. Even when I wanted to scream and my heart was being squeezed while reading The Leftside of Perfect, I was loving it. I binged this duet like crazy. I could not nor wanted to put it down and it was that good. And after reading the end of book 1, I couldn't wait a second before diving into book 2... and then I almost died because that first sentences of chapter 1 freaking tricked me and I honestly wanted to die and then I kept reading and I was so freaking relieved omg... that was fun.

I honestly have no words to describe how much I actually loved this duet. It just... I got it, I understood. Meghan might have pissed me off and hurt me like hell but oh god did she have it all planned out in the beginning and it never felt so right. Seriously, everything fit. I GET IT. I feel like a had a moment while reading this duet. And you'll get it too guys when you read it, you will! So please if you're on the fence about reading this, please please don't be and do yourself the greatest favor and read this duet! Because believe me it is so so worth it. I can't say it enough. It was so good, so perfect, so sweet and heart wrenching but oh so RIGHT! 

I feel like I should be screaming at the top of my lungs for people to read this duet, specially the ones who read the Perfect Line duet. And to those who haven't, honestly don't pick it without reading the other duet because I feel like you'll be missing the whole essence and magnificence of this foursome if you don't read all 4 books in order. Yes, it's journey and the roller coaster your feelings will go through will seem like it's not worth it but it is, I swear you'll get it once you reach the end of The Right Side of Forever. You will get that the way things are is how they were always supposed to be. And it is glorious. This duet made me so happy, I still have some sort of resentment towards what happened and I think it will always be there, a little something something but The Perfect Duet made me see that things turned out the way they should have and it was amazing watching my baby get his HEA. And boy were they perfect for each other. And getting to see him supporting his best friend and being so happy for him mended all the hurt from the Blue Line duet.

Meghan outdid herself with this one. Even with all the hurt and frustration, I loved the Blue Line duet but this one? It was so much better! These characters fit like two puzzles pieces. And their story was a beautiful hike of friendship and angst, love and acceptance. Everything about it was magnificent and just perfection. I could not have loved it more! The Right Side of Forever was one of the best conclusions to a duet I have ever read. And so is this duet.


I had every intention on keeping this short but then all the feelings came back and my love had to come through. #sorrynotsorry. I could actually go on and talk in detail about the characters but since that's a major spoiler to those who haven't read it, I'll shut up. 
Seriously though please read these books!!




Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Cover Reveal: The Tenth Girl, Carrie Aarons



Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations
Release Date: September 9, 2018



Blurb


Never play a game
you can't win.



For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until
now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls ... his charm-laced ego
may just be bigger than Texas itself.



The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches
each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more
to go, and then it's off to college fame and eventually, the big time.
Attachments aren't something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl
challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would
be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.



Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body,
especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley
when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft
side are dangerous to her heart. She's seen men ruin her mother's dreams time
and again, and she's determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma
in her fist.



But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite
understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble
when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?



Harper is the one girl who isn't up for playing games. And she just might make
Cain lose. Everything.

Now Live: Love Online, Penelope Ward

fullsizeoutput_68
A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel
By: NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Penelope Ward

LOVE ONLINE LIVE NOW

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

Review: Reckless King, Maya Hughes

 An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.

Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault, at least that’s what they say. Until Kara.

Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind...until I walk into my last class of the semester.

Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move--if anyone finds out--we’re both sunk.

On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.

Life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make...

REVIEW

We finally got more of the Kings wooh ooh! It's no secret I fell in love with all the Kings when I met Declan and I had been so excited to get more of them. I am so happy we got to see them all together again. I am living for these guys!

I loved getting to know all about Heath, he seemed like such a chill guy but there is so much more beyond what he puts out in the world. He has his own demons and they get to him a lot but he always seem to pull through and be there for others in a way he needed for himself. Heath is a truly unique guy, I have never met anyone like him and that does make him special and this book proved how much. I loved him and felt so much for him and what he went through, past and present.

Reckless King started off just right, all the kings together making me happy. Then Heath meets Kara and oh boy the sparks fly, the tension is on fire and then it explodes in a hotel room bed. These two were so perfect together, I loved watching them get to know each other and open up about their pasts and struggles. Kara was there for him through a really rough time and watching Heath react to that tragic event really broke my heart. Oh I never thought this book would make me cry but shit did it. Maya shocked me a little with what happened and I kind of want scream at her a little for what she did because omg my hearts hurts. How could you? Why did you? *cries endless tears*
But I can't deny that it added depth to the book and all the angst to the story and Heath and Kara's relationship too. It just hurts though. And believe me I want to say a lot more about it but I ain't about to give spoilers.

This book was so good. Maya writes chemistry like no other and I just love watching her character relationship's flourish. It's so exciting and fun and I just enjoy it so much. Reckless King was so much more than a simple sports romance/forbidden romance. There was so much to both these characters, so much hurt and demons and angst and then all the stuff going on with the side characters... it was just amazing. I just know this whole series will go down in history in the romance community. It sure will in my book. We are only on book 2 and I already love this gang so much and I couldn't possibly be more excited for all that is next!
Just like in Shameless King we got a lot of hints of the upcoming books, Ford and Olivia, Emmet and Avery. Oh boy I am so ready for that last one. Major breakthrough happened in this book and I am just beyond excited to see how it all plays out between them and how they will get back to each other after everything they have been through. My fingers are hitching for it all.
