Hilary Storm and Kathy Coopmans - Fire review



What happens when his mission is to get the girl?
Find out in the conclusion of The Elite Forces Series in 
 FIRE by Kathy Coopmans & Hilary Storm. #MilitaryRomance 

NOW LIVE!


Blurb

The moment you think you have it all is when it vanishes right before your eyes. 

He had one final mission, but who knew it would go wrong? Kaleb Maverick is now fighting for his life. The life he wants to share with the woman he loves. The Fire inside him not only burns for her, it sizzles. 

Jade Elliott has lost one man in her life. She's determined not to lose another. The coldness in her heart can't handle another loss like that. She refuses to let Kaleb go. 

He's the Fire to her Ice. She's the Ice to his Fire. Together they cause an explosion so hot that someone is bound to get torched. 


Excerpt
Love, a word never on my radar, has now taken over my existence.  My world revolves around this man.  
I’m in love with him because of the deep connection I felt the second I saw him and dealing with the torture of this week has only intensified my feelings.  My mind went crazy, thinking of everything he went through, as I examined all of the marks on his body.  I can tell he was whipped many times.  The wounds are starting to heal, but I’m afraid the surface scars will always be there.  And I don’t even want to think about the internal scars something like this would bring. 
I don’t care what he looks like or how much this will torment him.  He takes me and I take him just the way he is.  He’s been point blank about wanting me from the first day we met, and now it’s time I match his determination.  His blastoff introduction to have me on my knees that first day could’ve so easily gone a different way.  I’m just glad I felt the connection the second I laid my eyes on him.

My Review


This book picked up right where the last book left off.  I was anxiously awaiting this story because I was completed captured by the story.  You can see my review of Ice here. And you definitely need to read that book in order to know what the heck is going on in this book!  Emotions are running high from the very beginning of this story.  This book has loss, love, family and friends.  It's a good combination, as are these 2 authors! I was completely hooked into the continuation of Kaleb and Jade's story.   I enjoy how we get each of their perspectives and we know what is going through their heads as things happen around them.  The chemistry is off the charts between them and they get each other.  

This book made me feel all the feels.  It's definitely intense and I had to find out how everything would turn out.  It kept me captivated and I didn't want to put it down. To me, that's a good book! When I finished this book and learned we get Harris' story next, I may or may not have raised my fist in the air. I'm so glad Kathy and Hilary will be bringing us another story.  Their writing is seamless and they make a dynamic duo.  If you like a lot of action, hot alpha males and steamy romance, then go get this book right now!

Jessica Lemmon - Return of the Bad Boy review


Return of the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon

Date of Publication: April 26, 2016

Blurb


He's a mess...
Asher Knight has three constants in his life: music, beautiful women, and a bottle of Jack. He lives for the next gig, the next city, and dreams only of a life spent in front of an arena full of screaming fans. But Asher's nomad ways come to a sudden stop when he learns he's the father of a three-year-old from a past relationship and suddenly this rock star bad boy is forced to put down roots.
Only she can clean up
Gloria Shields is no one's fool. Sure, the sexual chemistry between her and Asher has always been intense, but she'd never risk giving her heart to a man who has a perfect record for breaking them. Except the man desperate to make things right with his newfound son is nothing like the rock god she's guarded her heart against for years. And it isn't long before she starts to wonder if life with this bad boy might be the best thing that's ever happened to her.

My Review

I've never read any of the other books in this series and I wasn't lost at all! I'm sure I would have loved seeing the other characters again, but for this being the only book I've read, I was informed and knew who the key players were.  We got a little into their backstories as well, so it was easy to follow.  I was hooked into this book from the very beginning.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story. And wow... cue the FEELS!  Nothing like an alpha male going after what he wants! 

I enjoy strong female characters and that's exactly who Gloria is.  She's had a tough life and in order to survive, she's had to be strong.  But she's pulled toward Asher and not to sound cliche, but he completes her in a way no others have before.  They are a dynamic duo! Both of them have a journey, but along the way, they find out what it is they need and want and push for that.  Asher pushes Gloria and is there for her.  Their story is sad, sweet, endearing and completely perfect!  I need to go back and read the rest of the series now. This was one book I never wanted to end. I could have read about them all day, every day! It was over faster than I was ready for and I wanted to wrap myself in Jessica Lemmon's words.  If you love a GREAT story, realistic characters and a swoon-worthy HEA, pick up this book today! You won't be disappointed!

Teaser

Gloria nodded at Evan, and he and Brice made their way through the crowd—which hadn't thinned even a little despite the band leaving the stage—and walked in the direction of the bar. Gloria figured they'd get back about the time the band took the stage again, which left her with Asher in the interim.
"I didn't realize you were invited," she said over the melee.
"I see that." The corners of his mouth turned down.
"Why did he invite you?" she asked, curious.
"He wants me," Asher said, a bored expression on his face.
"No. He wants me." She pressed her fingers into her chest.
Asher leaned closer to speak to her and it took everything in her not to back away a step. Him close had a way of messing with her equilibrium...even more than the whiskey.
"I meant he wants to sign the band, Sarge. He's probably buttering you up to get to me."
"What?" she asked, slightly offended. "How egotistical are you?"
"I'm not being egotistical," he said. "That's a fact. And you're welcome."
Oh, he was too much. "I'm welcome?"
"Yeah. Now that I'm here, you won't have to touch him. He won't get within three feet of you." Stubble lined his jaw, fire burned in his eyes, and he stood close enough that his body heat blanketed her. "Promise."
"Listen, Asher"—she cleared her throat and tore her eyes away from his biceps, which were absolutely delicious and testing the limits of his T-shirt in the most distracting way possible—"I don't know what you think you're doing—"
"No, you listen." He palmed her hip much like Brice had earlier, but unlike Brice, when Asher touched her, her nipples perked up and every inch of her grew warm. Asher's nearness, one hand gripping her firmly as he looked down at her with dark hunger in his eyes, was so hot she couldn't think.
The crowd milling around them were having loud, drunken conversations, so he lowered his face to her ear to speak.
"I'm coming for you, Sarge." His hand moved from her hip to her lower back, his fingers splaying wide and slipping beneath the material of her shirt. "Bet you've never had anyone come for you, have you?" His nose moved along her ear, warm breath tickling her skin. "Bet you were a rebellious teen with a nose ring and a bad attitude and all you wanted was to feel good."
No nose ring, but the rest was scarily accurate.
"Well, guess what, honey?" he continued, his fingertips sizzling on her bare skin. "I'm going to make you feel good. I'm the only one who can."
He pulled his face away and she had to will her mouth to close. Her teeth clacked together as her brain scrambled to figure out what part she should argue with first. Wrenching a fist around his T-shirt, she tugged him close. A small smile played on his mouth, and his hand went higher beneath her shirt. He was anticipating a kiss, but she wasn't going to kiss him.
"Listen up, you arrogant bastard." Anger vibrated through her arms and a charge shot from her toes to the crown of her head. "You don't get to claim me. I'm not your property. I can do whatever I want." Because she wanted to wipe that stupid smirk off his face, she added, "And I can do whomever I want."
His lips flinched, but he didn't back away, stepping even closer and touching the tip of her nose with his. Her vision was now swimming in dark hair, dark eyes, and the sexiest smirk she'd ever seen.
It's not sexy. It's stupid, remember?
But it wasn't. And the rest of her knew it. Her nipples tightened, her body tingled, and the hand she'd wrapped around his shirt began to sweat . . .

Liv Morris - Marry Screw Kill review and excerpt


Marry Screw Kill by Liv Morris is NOW LIVE! 




Blurb

There are two men in my life. I’m marrying one, want to screw the brains out of another, and by the time this story is over you may want to kill someone.

The choices are still pending...

A NO CHEATING standalone you need to read sitting down. 


MY REVIEW:
This book had its hooks in me from the very beginning. The summary didn't do this book justice. I was on the edge of my seat while reading this. Whew buddy! This book was intense, sad, sweet and redeeming. I'm still thinking about it, even hours after reading it. It's one of those books! 

I don't even know what I can say about this book because I don't want to give anything away! This story did a great job keeping me captivated and wanting to find out what was next. If you enjoy a good, edge of your seat read, then jump on this book! And be prepared to also be a bit ticked off.   The emotions in this book run HIGH!  But I enjoyed it.  It was different and not what I was expecting.



Excerpt
“Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees. 
He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing. 
I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?” He places another kiss on my hand. “I forgive you for tonight.” 
I do need his forgiveness, because his lips aren’t the ones I want on me. The ones I want belong to the man driving the car behind us. The fact that he’s James’ nephew makes me feel even more ashamed. What is wrong with me?
“You say you love me, but I need you to show me your love. Erase what I saw.” He releases my hand and I can guess what he wants: sex. It’s how he communicates. 
“Unzip your dress and remove your bra,” he instructs, his voice rough.
I don’t want to upset him more, so I work myself out of my dress and bra. The air conditioning blows across my bare breasts and my nipples harden. I’m tempted to cover them with my hands, but he wouldn’t approve, so they stay at my sides.
Eyeing my exposed body, he licks his lips, pleased with what he sees. He reaches over to touch the side of my breast, cupping it with his hand. His thumb finds my nipple and strokes over it, pinching it hard. I inhale a sharp breath at the assaulting sensation. 
“You’re utter perfection. Feel how hard you make me.” His fingers leave my breast and grip my hand. Placing my hand over his bulging erection and curling my fingers around him, I close my eyes. 
“Now, unzip my pants and put me in your hot mouth.”

Catherine Bybee - Doing It Over review


DOING IT OVER

Most Likely To Series, Book One

Montlake Romance, Contemporary

April 19, 2016, First Edition


Paperback & Kindle



One small town. Three close friends. True love to last a lifetime.


Voted Most Likely to Succeed, Melanie Bartlett ended up anything but. The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over—is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life.

Wyatt Gibson never liked the big city. River Bend suits the ruggedly handsome builder just fine. Wyatt knows he’s home, even if that means being charmed by the appearance of Melanie and her spunky, adorable daughter. Is Wyatt’s calm devotion—even amid a coming storm—enough to convince Mel she may have found a home to call her own, a family that never leaves, and a true love to last a lifetime?




Praise for Doing It Over


“The romance between fiercely independent Melanie and charming Wyatt heats up even as outsiders threaten to derail their newfound happiness. This novel will hook readers with its warm, inviting characters and the promise for similar future installments.” –Publishers Weekly

“This brand-new trilogy, Most Likely To, based on yearbook superlatives, kicks off with a novel that will encourage you to root for the incredibly likable Melanie. Her friends are hilarious and readers will swoon over Wyatt, who is charming and strong. Even Melanie’s daughter, Hope, is a hoot! This romance is jam-packed with animated characters, and Bybee displays her creative writing talent wonderfully.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

My Review:

Sigh. The FEELS in this book! Definitely swoon worthy. This book is the start of a new series and it definitely didn't disappoint!  FANTASTIC read! I was sucked into Melanie and Wyatt's story from the first page and I didn't want it to end.

I loved the fact that the three friends remained in contact after high school and were there for each other.  Life definitely took them in different directions but they didn't let life walk all over them. I enjoyed the closeness of these friends who were like family to each other. They supported and loved each other. Melanie is trying to get back on her feet and came back to her roots with her daughter in tow. A man was the last thing she expected. Wyatt was the track coach and local builder/handyman. He was enjoying life in a small town and making a name for himself. Then he found Melanie and Hope and was pulled toward them. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the slow build between Wyatt and Melanie. The anticipation!! I'm telling you, Catherine writes a delicious buildup. And when it finally happens, it's totally perfect for them. And the drama in this story!! Hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride. There are various things to make it so but I don't want to give anything away. I adored getting to know these friends and watching 2 of them fall for each other. It was a sweet story, nail biting and all around great, captivating read. I hope we get Jo and Zoe's stories next ! Another great book from Catherine Bybee. Highly recommend it!

Liv Morris - Marry Screw Kill excerpt reveal




Excerpt
“When drowning, one grabs the first lifeline thrown without regard to 

who holds the rope.” 

James silences his blaring alarm clock in the early morning darkness of our 

bedroom. He falls back on the bed with a sigh as I face the wall, feigning sleep. 

Not moving a muscle, I wait for what comes next. He’ll either get out of bed or 

climb on top of me. When I sense a slight movement from his side of the bed, I 

hold my breath.

 “Come here, Harlow.” His hand curls around my waist and he rolls my body 

over to face him. Morning sex it is. He pushes away the tangled bed hair covering 

my eyes as I blink the sleep from them. “There’s my beautiful girl.” He kisses my 

forehead with a soft brush of his lips. 

“Morning,” I reply in a sleepy, hoarse voice. He pulls down the twisted covers 

and exposes our naked bodies. His gaze travels over me, lingering on his favorite 

spots—ones he knows very well.

“What a sight to wake up to.” He hovers above my body and looks down at 

me with hooded eyes. “My day is always better when I start it inside you. Now, 

spread those long legs so I can fuck you.” 

I part my legs and my day begins…
