REVIEW - Going Down on One Knee by Christina Hovland

The Book
Release Date: 19 October 2018
Goodreads Link

Number-crunching Velma Johnson’s perfectly planned life is right on course.

That’s a lie. Sure, she’s got the lucrative job. She’s got the posh apartment. But her sister nabbed Velma’s Mr. Right. There has to be a man out there for Velma. Hopefully, one who’s hunky, wears pressed suits, and has a diversified financial portfolio. He’ll be exactly like, well… her sister’s new fiancé.

Badass biker Brek Montgomery blazes a trail across the country, managing Dimefront, one of the biggest rock bands of his generation. With the band on hiatus, Brek rolls into Denver to pay a quick visit to his family and friends. But when Brek’s sister suddenly gets put on bed rest, she convinces Brek to take over her wedding planning business for the duration of her pregnancy.

Staying in Denver and dealing with bridezillas was not what Brek had in mind when he passed through town, but there is one particular maid-of-honor who might make his stay worthwhile.

Velma finds herself strangely attracted to the man planning her sister’s wedding. Problem is, he ticks none of the boxes on her well-crafted list. Brek is rough around the edges, he cusses, and doesn’t even have a 401(k). But trying something crazy might get her out of the rut of her dating life—so long as she lays down boundaries up front and sticks to her plan…

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is an opposites attract story.  Velma is an investment portfolio manager and Brek is a band manager who is there for his sister and looks after her wedding planning business while she is on vert pregnant bed rest.

Velma is a 'good' girl who does not like swearing and has a five year plan, along with a crush on her sisters now fiance.  It is only when Brek arrives on the scene that things change for the better for Velma.

Brek is a bad boy.  Swearing, covered in tattoos, however he has a heart of gold, this their for his sister and gets Velma to branch out and try things out of her comfort zone.  Like wise Velma is there to help him organise a few weddings to help out his sister.

Both characters change their lives and take a new direction when they finally discover that they want each other more than they want to stay as they were.

Review - Montana Dreams (The Wildes of Birch Bay #4) by Kim Law

The Book
Release Date: 25 September 2018
Goodreads Link

Sometimes dreams change…and sometimes it takes a dream reader to make it happen.

When Jaden Wilde’s girlfriend turns down his marriage proposal just months before he receives his master’s in counseling, he’s convinced that it’s cold feet. Until he learns that her no came at the advice of a new age “dream reader.” But Arsula’s hardly the woo-woo hippie his scholarly mind imagined. She’s charming, smart, and uncannily perceptive. And before long, he’s drawn to her—despite his ongoing skepticism for how her practice works.

Arsula’s intuitions led her to Birch Bay not to guide Jaden’s girlfriend—but to guide him to his best life possible. As the odd one out in an unsupportive family, Arsula can relate to the struggle to find one’s path, and she wants to see Jaden with the woman of his dreams. Although she’s cautious of being the rebound girl, what she’s starting to feel for him is too real to ignore.

When Jaden’s own volatile family issues come to a head and his doubts are made resoundingly clear, Arsula worries she’s misread the signs. Maybe they’re all wrong for each other. Maybe he should be with his ex. She’s supported him, but if he can’t believe in her, how will they ever find out if they’re truly meant to be?

My Review  5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the fourth book in the series and although it could be read as a stand alone, i feel you would miss too much of the family dynamic and the larger plot if you do not read the previous books.

Jaden is a scholar and is studying to get his master’s in counseling, however when his meets Arsula after the breakup of his almost fiancée because of her meddling in his life, its safe to say that he thinks her talents reading dreams is a big load of rubbish.

Arsula is used to being made fun of, however she only finds out why she is in Birch Bay when she finds Jaden, who has only come back for a wedding.

The emotions pull at you, especially with Jadens family past and Arsula acts well considering who childish Jaden sometimes acts, even if she does throw a few things at him.

I enjoyed this book immensly and get the feeling that the next book in the series is going to involve Nate.

REVIEW - Bitten: The Bite Series by Lynn Best

The Book
Release Date: 31 October 2017
Goodreads Link

What if the guy of your dreams tells you he's a vampire?

When Stephanie packed up everything and moved across country with her boyfriend, she wasn't expecting him to turn into a total jerk the minute they were settled. Crying into her coffee, she's surprised when a tall, handsome stranger tries to cheer her up. He's gorgeous and way out of her league. His flirtation can't possibly be real. But when she bumps into him again (not so accidentally) and he offers her a job, she can't refuse. Now she finds herself growing closer to this mysterious, wealthy man.

But is there any bark to his bite, or is it all in her imagination? 

For fans of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, A Shade of a Vampire, and Dark Stranger. It contains hot vampires, page-turning action, and steamy romance. Guaranteed HEA. Mature content. Not suitable for readers under 18.

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book pretty much ends on a cliff hangar and is so short that the story is over before it really goes anywhere.

Stephanie followed her boyfriend to Texas, however things have gone south very quickly, it is only the tall, dark, mysterious handsome man that comes to here while she is crying into her coffee that turns things around for her, however he is holding a secret.

Francisco is protective of Stephanie and has a really sweet heart and does not really act like most vampires you read about.

I would have loved for this story to be more fleshed out and more developed, but i guess this is a good novella to give you an idea at the authors style of writing.

REVIEW - A Naughty Little Christmas by Lili Valente

The Book
Release Date: 16 October 2018
Goodreads Link

I figured moonlighting as a Santa stripper was the most exciting thing on my docket this holiday season. 

But that was before Macy Clayton, my first love and the one I never wanted to get away, careened back into my life. Before the avalanche and the hike through a blizzard. Before getting snowed in at a secluded ranger station with nothing but a fire, a few fleece blankets, and each other to keep warm. 

And yes, it turns out what the survivalists say is true—you really do stay warmer, and happier, when you’re naked. 

Soon, Macy and I are back on track to being two turtledoves, and I’m happier than any partridge in a pear tree. But crossed signals and old wounds prove that second chances can be tricky, even during the most wonderful time of the year. 

I’ll pull out all the stops to prove to Macy she’s the only one I ever want to jingle my bells, but will it be enough to pull off a Christmas miracle? 

*This book was previously published as the novella "Snow Place Like Home" by Jessie Evans. It has been revised and expanded for this novel-length edition.

My Review  3 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Tule Publishing for an honest review**

Although this is book 4 in a series, it can totally be read as a stand alone.  I have not read any of the previous books and totally followed the story with no problems.

Mari is only back home as a dying wish from her late husband and so that her son can see where she grew up.  However it soon becomes apparent that her son is actually has a father alive, the brother of her ex-husband.

Lots of plots secrets are slowly revealed to open the picture fuller and to show that she and her ex-husband had a few wires crossed with family members that could have been exposed by talking to each other.

It's a sweet read and Mari's son accepts his new reality really well.

Goodreads Link

Accidentally engaged. Then he dared me to make it real.

It was one freaking kiss with a stranger.
I wasn't looking for a hero the day Brent Eden charged into my life.
He saw a damsel in distress facing humiliation.
We played pretend. Swore I was his. Baited sweet chaos.
Blew apart everything.

My dating disaster? Gone.
Our kiss? Electric. Divine. Toe-curling.
His mistake? Oh, boy.
Dropping the ultimate F-bomb: fiancé.
Especially when my gossipy cousin tells the whole family.

Forget how he's badass personified.
The ink. The leather. The abs. The smirk.
The lightning eyes and the growl I can't resist.
Nothing changes the fact that he's my favorite student's father.
I'm risking it all for this charade. And I'm losing.

The closer we get, the deeper I fall.
The louder he vows to protect me.
The more we come undone.
Even my questions have questions.
What if I'm not the only one who needs saving?
What if our marriage mistake gets way too real?

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

A lot seemed be thrown at this book, virgin, bad boy doing good, former M/C member and former military, single dad, etc....

Izzy (Blue) is our virgin and an art teacher fill in who likes the look of one of her pupils father and things escalate when he saves her after a bad date finds her at work and threatens her.

Brent Eden has so many things in his background, bad boy gone good, former military, business owner, single father, blackmail etc.  Its woo much for one story really, but its carried off well enough.

It is a decent read, but Brent did frustrated me at times and Izzy was pushed along by Brent far too easily in my opinion.

Still i did enjoy the book and i would look at reading more of the authors work.

REVIEW - The Wrong Man (Alpha Men #3) by Natasha Anders

The Book
Release Date: 4 September 2018
Goodreads Link

No commitments. No expectations. No way this could possibly go wrong…right?

Former special-ops soldier Sam Brand is used to getting what he wants. What he wants is to unbutton the buttoned-down, sweet, and shy Dahlia McGregor. He’s hot to find her wild side. She’s eager to let him explore it. So he makes his proposition—no strings, no hurt feelings, and no promises—save for one: she’ll have the time of her life.

After a broken engagement, Lia’s looking to someday find the right man and settle down. That’s some day. Now it’s all about the night. A hot, meaningless fling with a magnificently weathered blue-eyed stud like Sam couldn’t hurt: he’s sexy, and sure he’s arrogant, but best of all, he’s here. In other words, he’s perfect…for now.

But when Sam is wounded in the line of duty and left in Lia’s tender loving care, all bets are off. Because the more time they spend together, the more it becomes clear: this “one night” deal is getting steamier and lasting longer than they counted on. It started as a fun little game. Is it possible they could be playing for keeps?

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

“Hello there, Miss Priss,” he greeted softly, his eyes taking in her cap-sleeved, knee-length, sky-blue dress with the high neck and slightly flared skirt. “You’re looking very pretty and proper this evening, and you know what that does to my blood pressure.”

I liked the ending to this series, and this one focuses on Dalia (Lia) and Sam Brand.

Lia is very proper and wants a husband, wears prim clothes and does not swear, Sam is another type of person.  For one he's English and two he says what he think, uses no filters and swears quite a bit.

The pair spend a lot of time together when Sam uses Mason's house as a convalescence house after he is stabbed on the job.  He uses Lia's sweet nature agains her, but it backfires a little bit when he seems to crave her more and more.

A mutual agreement for a fling whilst he is there and the pair are getting closer and closer whilst denying that they actually really like the island.

With an interfering sister, illness and recovery thrown into the mix along with a stubborn pop star, the pair eventually find that they don't want to be apart.

The epilogue give happy endings for all three sisters five years down the line as their families expand.

I did enjoy this book, but felt that book two was the best one.

REVIEW - CourtShip (Best Friends #1) by Noelle Adams

The Book
Release Date: 23 September 2018
Goodreads Link

Three years ago, I found her drunk on my doorstep, crying over a television show that betrayed her. A year later, we were best friends. She taught me how to laugh, and she set me up on double dates. Sure, I occasionally felt an attraction to her that went far deeper than friendship, but I could pretend it wasn't important.

Now she's everything to me. My life has reshaped itself around her. I'm not allowed to want her for more than my best friend. But I do anyway. I want everything from her, and fighting my heart doesn't work anymore.

CourtShip is a friends-to-lovers romance novella spanning three years of a changing relationship, written entirely from the hero's point of view.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This a quick novella that takes place over three years and focuses on the changing relationship between Courtney and Shipley from the moment they meet to the present day.

Both Shipley and Courtney struggle to open up with other people, but it is Courtney that brings Shipley back to life and they find in each other someone dependable and someone who is there for them.

We watch as Shipley struggles with his feelings, the book is told from his point of view, and the physical responses that Courtney bring out in him.  

This is a very fast read and leaves you feeling happy that they both manage to sort out their feelings and what they want from each other.

A cute read that will leave you feeling satisfied.

REVIEW - Crime Boss Baby: A Billionaire Mafia Love Story (Bad Boys and Babies Book 3) by Krista Lakes

Goodreads Link

From New York Times bestselling author Krista Lakes comes a sensual, standalone mafia romance that will have you turning the pages at record speed. 

I am a mafia princess. 

My family is making me marry a rival crime boss. 

At first, I go along with it because it's important to my family. But then I meet him

But there are parts of my past that can ruin everything. My mother's murderer is catching up to me. If he finds me, he could ruin everything. Not only that, not everyone in Dante's family is as excited about the wedding as they appear. 

And then, there's news that both overjoys and terrifies me. I'm pregnant. 

Can Dante save me and give me the future we both desire? Or will my past destroy everything and everyone that I care about?

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book is the third book in the series and can be read as a stand alone.

Although this book is good , i still preferred the first two as this one just felt a little bit rushed to me and just didn't give me the same happy warm fuzzies that the other two did.  

Cara is a strong character with a hurt that she has kept hold of, and when the past comes back to her life it takes her a little while to get her head around what is happening and how she can come out of it alive and kicking on top of those pushing her down.

Dante is from another mob family and most of the time he seems kind and caring, but occasionally we see glimpses of the harder man beneath, but he never really seemed to fit the part for me and things happen between the pair so fast it just doesn't fit quite right for me.

This book is still a good holiday read, though i may not pick this one up again.

REVIEW - Destined for You: Magnolia Valley by Cora Reed

The Book
Release Date: 26 July 2018
Goodreads Link

For journalist Astrid Jones, Magnolia Valley, Montana was where she was happiest. When she gets divorced and then unceremoniously fired in less than six months, she hopes her hometown will work its magic and help her get her life back on track. 

All she has to do is avoid her ex-boyfriend, Ethan, and focus on writing a story that will restart her career. Leaving Ethan broke her heart, but she knows she can never be the woman he deserves. 

Astrid is headstrong, gorgeous, and always fighting for the underdog—and even at eighteen Ethan knew he’d found the one. But when he proposed to her the night before they went to different colleges, she said no and left without a backward glance. 

Since then, Ethan has kept everyone at a distance. But after years of work becoming a veterinarian and joining a practice, Ethan’s goal to open an animal sanctuary and make amends for a tragedy in his past is within reach. He knows he should stay focused and keep his distance from Astrid. 

But Ethan has never been very good at staying away from Astrid. And when the story Astrid uncovers puts her in danger—Ethan has to stay close and protect her. Soon, their rekindled passion is heating up the cold winter nights. As Ethan discovers more of Astrid’s guarded heart, he realizes he can’t let her go without a fight this time. 

Yet as their love grows, outside forces threaten to destroy everything they are trying to build. Will they find the courage to fight for a second chance at love?

My Review  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the second book in the series and can be read as a stand alone as the novel very much only focuses on Ethan and Astrid and is read from Astrid Point of view.

The characters are relatable and also have their problems and insecurities, but manage to overcome them and be there for each other when it matters most.  Especially as Astrid reporters nose lands he in a spot of trouble. 

Astrid also proves she is there for Ethan in helping him organise a fundraiser for an animal sanctuary in memory of his friend and when there needs to be a venue change, Astrid really rally's round to make it happen.

I really like these characters and we were also introduced to a few more characters along with a tie-bit on who will next get their story, Nora and Alek.

I really recommend this book.

REVIEW - The Billionaire's Baby Arrangement by Krista Lakes

The Book
Release Date: 11 September 2018
Goodreads Link

From New York Times bestselling author Krista Lakes comes a sexy standalone novel about a billionaire and the indecent proposal he gives the local barista.

Billionaire CEO Jackson Weathers needs a family for a PR boost, and I've signed a contract agreeing to give him one. A doting girlfriend in public. A wedding ceremony to invite all the socialites to. And finally, a baby for him to parade around, to show he's really a wholesome, down-to-Earth man.

I've tried to remain cynical about it. He's going to make all my dreams come true. So what if it's supposed to be a loveless marriage?

Only, his tenderness in private has me hooked. The way he kisses me drives me wild. When we make love, I lose myself to him. His body feels like it was meant to be on top of mine, like we fit together like two puzzle pieces. I can't help but begin to fall for him.

I can't tell him, or I risk losing everything. And nobody else can find out about our little "arrangement" or it will destroy his reputation. Still, I feel like I have to know how he feels, before the marriage, before the baby, before I give my entire life over to him.

Is it still just pretend?

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book follows the same rules as other books in this trope and the characters soon find that actually they get along well together and things quickly go from a like of the other person to more, especially as from the first time they make love their is no condom.

Jackson is only ever a lovely guy to Emma from the beginning and is only ever honest, he just forgets once to let her know something that ends up hurting her.

Emma has great friend that helps her when it is needed and Jackson has a great PR lady who kicks his butt when he needs it too.

Enjoyed this story and look forward to more of the authors work.

REVIEW - Family Doctor's Baby: A Doctor and Nurse Love Story (Bad Boys and Babies Book 1) by Krista Lakes

The Book
Release Date: 7 September 2018
Goodreads Link

From New York Times bestselling author Krista Lakes comes a sexy standalone novel about the baddest bad boy doctor and the sweet little nurse that he falls for. 

When I left my small hometown years ago, I never expected to come back. I certainly never expected that when I did, I'd be working for him

He's the town's doctor. He's supposed to be a respectable member of society, a pillar for the community. He's supposed to have come a long way from the bad boy who rode a motorcycle in high school. 

But he hasn't. One glance from those lustful eyes looking at me tells me that he has the same voracious appetites that he did when we were younger. 

Only it's not quite the same stare. It's more urgent. It's more intense. I'm not the same nerdy girl who tutored him. I've grown up, developed fertile curves that I know he finds irresistible. 

In this small town, rumors travel fast, and the family doctor can't be seen as a player. So he does try to resist. And I do too. But with every smoldering glance and moment of sexual tension, we find our barriers breaking down. 

After a stressful night of touch-and-go baby delivery, a moment of elation overcomes our inhibitions. It seems like maybe we'll need to confront those rumors sooner rather than later, especially before I begin to show the results of that night. 

Can I give this doctor the family he has always desired?

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

We start this book when Hannah has recently moved back home to be closer to her parents as her father is dying of cancer.  Dr Jacob Matthews was a boys that she helped tutor and her teenage crush, however now he is her boss.

Neither Jacob or Hannah had intended on moving back home once they had left, however a failed relationship sent Jacob home and his bad boy ways seem to be a thing in the past.

It is his teenage crush Hannah that turns his world back to a happier place.

I loved the connection the pair have together, even with the turmoil of the very small minded town around them.  Both stand up for each other in the way that they can and both show inner strength and that they can rise above the nastiness that is thrown their way.

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.

REVIEW - The Best Man (Alpha Men #2) by Natasha Anders

The Book
Release Date: 10 April 2018
Goodreads Link
It has all the makings of a picture-perfect wedding. There’s just one detail that could have used a little more planning…
Hulking ex–rugby player Spencer Carlisle has crushed on Daffodil McGregor since high school. On the field he knew the moves. Off, he was a clueless clod who never gained an advantage. Rejected and rebuffed, his infatuation finally cooled—like ice.
Now, it’s impossible not to feel the chill—since he’s the best man and she’s the maid of honor at their siblings’ wedding. For the sake of harmony, they’re calling a truce.
Daff has her reasons for being a cynic when it comes to romance. And twice as many for not letting on that she finds Spencer attractive—although she’d rather gnaw off her thumb than admit it. Still, there’s more to the sweet and sexy lug than meets the eye. Maybe he is the one who can heal her emotional scars. Maybe he’ll give her a second chance. Because Spencer could be Daff’s own best man—if it’s not too late to come to terms with the past.
My Review  4 STARS
This is the second book in the series and we met both Spencer and Daff in book one as Daffodil is one of Daisy's sisters and Spencer is Mason's brother.

This books lots of revelations,  Why Daff was nasty to Spencer at school, Daff finds out what she truly likes and finds herself, Mason and Spencer have a family shock, Daisy and Mason get married and wee get an introduction to Dahlia (Lia) and the man that is going to be her happy ever after.

Spencer proves time and time again that he has brought Mason up and has instilled in both of them old fashioned manners and ways.  I mean, who else carry's around a hanker-chief in their thirties.

I loved Spencer, how he is protective of his family and those he is close to.  I also liked how Daff has started to stick up for herself and finds peace in herself.

I really enjoyed this story and i am looking forward to see how Lia's story will turn out.

REVIEW - Blood Drenched Conquest (Ryze #3) by N. Isabelle Blanco

The Book
Release Date: 11 September 2018
Goodreads Link

Soleria 

When a human male breaks your heart, it can feel like your life is ending.
When an immortal goddoes it . . . well, I learned the hard way that can lead to actual death.
The last few years I’ve been isolated except for my two best friends Ismini and Evesse.
Until they both went missing.
Until I started searching for them and connected with the last thing I expected. 
A pair of white eyes.
He ruined me. All because I was stupid enough to give in.
Too weak to fight him.
His scent.
His taste.
Everything about that god possessed me. I knew he’d be the end of me. I knew it.
I couldn’t stay away regardless . . . 
And he drove me to suicide. 
Now I’m back.
I’m different.
A monster I cannot recognize.
A monster thirsting for blood . . . 

Ianthen 

The end of the last war is a day I’ll never forget.
How could I? It’s the day my best friend prophesied I would one day die.
I, the primal God of the Hunt, the first of his kind, dead. Gone.
All because of a female.
I lived nearly fourteen millenia waiting.
No, running.
Until shebarreled into my dream and turned everything upside down.
I ran again. 
I hurt her.
I tore out the very heart I would die for.
Because of my actions, I had to watch her die. 
Now she’s back.
She’s more different than any of us could have ever predicted.
Lost to the obsession for Conquest that has awakened in her veins.
A female I’m determined to save before death finishes consuming me.

My Review  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Holy Moly, so much action and romance packed into these little pages that just HAD to be kept turning, sitting on the edge of my seat at times waiting to see what was going to happen next.

We have met Sol and Ianthen in the previous two books and Sol is another female with a very strong backbone with a past in magic on her mothers side.  Ianthen is the God of the Hunt and therefore good looking of course and he has a twin sister.

So much happens in this book from when Ianthen is originally given his prophecy to the time now when Ianthen and Sol get a happy ever after in a completely different dimension.

All the other gods have parts to play, there is war, half bonded pairs getting worse in their symptoms, worlds in different dimensions, sex, falling in love, witch magic, new powers and immortality.

I seriously cannot rave about this but, better yet, this series, any higher.  I have had this series alway in my head since the author first published way back when, then had to wait as she got her rights back and rebranded and expanded the series, telling it more how she wants.  Seriously i have not minded the wait as book three is that good.

Only problem now is that i have to wait another year for book four to come out lol.

This can totally be read as a stand alone story, but i would bet it would still be nice to know more of the previous characters stories, however enough is given in this book to keep you in the know.

Charlotte is a hard worker with a passion for her job helping the homeless find their feet in the most careful and sensitive way.  It is a misunderstanding thinking that Julian is a little like the people that she helps out daily that sends these two into a happiness that they thought may never happen for them.

Julian has only just got back from a three month road trip after a dramatic ending to his previous unhealthy relationship.  He is surprised that someone is doing something for him for nothing, let alone that she does not recognise him.

The pair work really well together, it is only Julians past that is keeping him from seeing how his past is hurting the new relationship that he wants with Charlotte, however he certainly is good at organising help for Charlottes work and getting hands on with the helping.

I really enjoyed this book, the sex scenes were what my mother describes and 'closed door' scenes, however there was still heat and certainly chemistry between the pair that scorched the pages.

I will certainly have to go back to books one and two at some time, just to finish off the series :)
