The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

This book was lighthearted, funny and a quick read.  Jules, the heroine in the story has just taken over her uncles wedding planning business and its not doing good at all.  Until she gets a huge opportunity to do a socialite’s wedding and put this company back on the map.  However, while meeting with the bride and her super hot, rich doctor, did I mention HOT brother, it takes a turn for the worse when she smashes cake in his face.  Well, to clear this up, at the time she did the cake smashing she was unaware that he was the bride’s brother.
When Jules and Jake (the sexy brother) have to work together…we have many funny scenes and witty one liners. You will see the attraction grow between Jules and Jake. I loved the comedy between the two of them but wished the chemistry and bedroom scenes had been a little bit more steamy but it didn’t take away from this story or the plot.  Definitely worth the read, great beach book!

A brand new sinfully sexy standalone romantic comedy from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!

When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.

You’d be wrong.

At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore. Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job—my brother’s business partner and best friend.

Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.


Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.

The one between my legs.

I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.

And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.

Though I saw a lot of reviews that are glowing, I hate to say this because I love the authors….but I wasn’t feel a connection with this story.
Graham and CJ have been in each others lives forever. CJ’s deceased brother and Graham were best friends and business partners so Graham is like a second brother to her. Graham is a manwhore and doesn’t deny it…and this is where I got lost.
CJ is a virgin and has the bright idea of asking Graham teach her how to be sexy, take her V-Card and be a man-eater. The chemistry felt forced and did not flow for me at all.  In fact, it was uncomfortable at times for me. The idea of the story was that this was to be just an objective arrangement – student/teacher. But we all know how feelings tend to pop up in these type of agreements.  It was just too predictable to me.  I guess I was hoping to feel more passion between the two.






“Their chemistry is scorching hot…The V Card is charming, feel-good entertainment punctuated by searing heat, heartwarming moments and the magic of New York City.”

– USA Today




As we settle in, the busboy brings the waters, and I cut to the chase. “So, I hate to crash the Sunday Funday vibe, but I invited you to brunch with an ulterior motive. I need a favor.”

She spreads her napkin on her lap with a raised brow. “What kind of favor?”

“I need you at next Monday’s board meeting. As you know, we lost an important account last month when Beaux Rêves in Paris went with a cheaper option. Obviously, they aren’t our only account, not by a long shot. But given how volatile the industry has been lately, I need to make it crystal clear to the shareholders that selling isn’t the right path. With the number of mergers and acquisitions going on, they’re seeing dollar signs, but quick money isn’t the answer. That’s where you come in.”

“You want them to hear from me because of my shares?” she asks, her brow furrowing. “We don’t have anything close to a majority.”

Though CJ inherited Sean’s share of the business when he passed away, that’s not why I need her at the meeting. CJ has a way of putting people at ease, of winning their trust and confidence. She’s a successful business owner in her own right—her accessories company Love Cycle Creations is growing by leaps and bounds every year. Plus, she was courted early on by an accessories conglomerate and she declined—totally the right call, as her company is now a rising star in her field.

I nod. “Of course, but that’s not the only reason. I need to convince them that now is not the time to explore getting into bed with a huge multinational retailer. And to do that, it’ll help to hear from someone with an insider’s stock holdings and an outsider’s perspective. I want them to hear from you in particular since you went through something so similar with Love Cycle.”

“On a much smaller scale, though. My company is tiny compared to Adored.”

“Size doesn’t matter.” I pause to wiggle an eyebrow for effect. “Well, in this case.”

A faint blush spreads on her cheeks. “You and the innuendo.”

“I do love innuendo. I also love Adored. That’s why I want to keep it the way it is—growing, profitable, and independent. I don’t want it swallowed by some faceless corporate giant.” A smile teases her lips for a moment and then disappears. I can’t read her at all, so I’m on the edge of my seat, waiting for an answer. “Please, CJ,” I add when she stays silent for a long beat. “I need you.”

“You need me,” she echoes, her brow smoothing as she sighs. She takes a drink of water, sets down her glass, and runs the tip of her tongue across her lips.

I watch her tongue move, wondering why I’ve never noticed how amazing her mouth is. She has the bee-stung lips of a cover girl, in a shade of pink so deep it brings to mind flushed, hot, intimate things.

Things I should be thinking of in her presence.

In anyone’s presence.

Resist, Campbell, resist…

Finally, just as I’m gearing up to beg, she looks up, a mysterious smile curving her lips. “I know exactly what you need, Graham.”

Damn, that sounded…naughty.

I reach for my water glass, needing something to cool me down since innocent words from a woman I’ve known forever are sending my thoughts straight into the gutter.

“But before I agree to your request,” she adds, her fingers drumming lightly on the white tablecloth, “I need something from you, too. Something I’ve been thinking long and hard about. Very long. And very hard.” Her eyes meet mine, trouble flickering in her gaze.

Glass halfway to my lips, I freeze.

Christ. Who the hell is this sexy-as-sin woman, and what has she done with CJ?

Van (Cold Fury Hockey #9) by Sawyer Bennett ~ Release Blitz w/ Review



Van (Cold Fury, Book #9)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 28, 2017


Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

I absolutely adore this series!! Each one captures me from the very first page and I’m in my own little world until the very last page….which was what I thought I was getting in this book but I didn’t. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved the plot…it just felt like something was missing…I struggled with the relationship with the two main characters…too much hot and cold and just felt off to me.

Simone….oh I just loved her!! She has dropped out of college and has decided to show up on one of her professional hockey player brothers doorstep to stay for a little while…only he does not live alone, he lives with a fellow teammate Van.

She is just a spitfire…so full of life and has a one liner for everything! Van however, is one of the most closed off humans on the face of the earth, has never been in a relationship and is socially stunted. He has trouble connecting with people and struggles with even having more then a few worded conversation. BUT……his past is a doozie and I totally get why feels the way he does and it’s sad to see…I don’t want to delve into his past too much because its vital to the story but it slowly comes out and explains why he is the way he is.

Simone is immediately attracted to Van and is like a dog with a bone and won’t let go until she gets him into her bed!! Which sets the scene for a few comical scenes…even though Van wants nothing to do with this tiny ball of fire..especially because she is a teammate’s sister. Well, she goes balls to wall in getting what she wants. A large portion of the book is the cat and mouse game and I honestly figured Van was a no go….but here is where it kind of lost me….he makes a rapid 180. Something from his past comes into his life and he is thrown for a loop. At this point, I just felt their relationship went from 0 to 60 and it was like I was reading about a totally different guy. Me no likey! Will his past effect his relationship with Simone for the good or bad? I was happy with the ending but to me, not one of my favorites in this series.

Bulletproof Butterfly by Anna Brooks ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Giveaway

Title: Bulletproof Butterfly
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 16, 2017 


I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.
I was also in love.
My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.
To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.
For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.
It’s time to get my girl back.
When I show up to reclaim what’s mine, I discover she’s not ready to forgive me quite yet… but that’s okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.
What I do have a problem with is the guy who’s been trying to take my place. Because here’s the thing, I’ve waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way… and I’m done following the rules.

Ok, so definitely not your run of the mill Witness Protection storyline…Jay and Livvie….what can I say about these two!!! Jay is the epitome of ALPHA..holy crap!!! But he is caring, sentimental, hot and a total badass!! Livvie is strong and adorable and is as madly in love with Jay as he is with her. You can feel their love and connection with every word written. And pennies…..lets just say you will never look at a penny the same way again. Their love oozes out of them and top that off with Jay’s alpha and some sexy hot love scenes and you have got yourself the perfect couple.

Only their story wouldn’t be complete without some sort of drama and that is what you get with this story…after watching these two fall in love and bond and create a life together they are ripped apart. I don’t want to get into why or how but it’s for the best for them even though Livvie doesn’t see why. It’s emotional, heart wrenching and it gave me angst waiting to see if these two find their way back to each other and if they do, will all the time spent apart be too much to mend their relationship?

I was literally on the edge of my seat to see what happens to this couple and to top it off there were great sex scenes to hold your interest as well. I have been in a huge and I mean huge reading slump and this book was the lifeline I needed to get me out!! Definitely recommend!

At the ending of Outlanders, a bombshell was dropped in our laps. Sawyer has to decide what she’s willing to do to protect her brand new life. Meanwhile Finn has loss so much before he met Sawyer. It nearly drove him to destroy himself. He knows now he’s not will to lose his second chance with Sawyer. When the past comes to Outskirts to try to come between these two, will they be able to fight back hard enough to stay together?

“I exhaled and relaxed against Finn who kissed my forehead. ‘I love you,’ I said.

Finn murmured against my hair and his words shot straight through to my very core. ‘Fiercely. Possessively. Crazily. Always.’”

This story had so many twists that it had my head spinning. At times I gasped and said NO WAY. It’s hard to place myself in Sawyer’s shoes and realize how sheltered she was raised. But not only her, there were points where I was like…REALLY, Finn? But I did enjoy the book and how strong of a bond Finn and Sawyer had formed. Not only the two of them. The entire family that Sawyer had found in Outskirts. I found it heartwarming that she was raised in a religious environment but the way women and children were treated…it was never family. Richard Dixon is definitely a good villain and I could easily get on board with everything Critter could imagine. And the cameo!!!! Thank you so much for when you bring other favorite characters into a different series. I loved it.

Basically this series is about new beginnings and family. And all of the crazy things we are willing to go through to protect them. I will always read anything T.M. Frazier writes because she keeps her people real with a big helping of humor thrown in there. Even if it can be a little sadistic sometimes.

I want to start off by saying that I love, love, loved the first book in this duet and the way it ended in a cliffhanger had me drooling for the 2nd book. Well, while I didn’t “love” the 2nd book, I liked it.

The storyline played out pretty much the way I expected it would and while there were some loose ends tied up there was nothing really shocking or angsty about it. Earlier characters have a more prominent role while some new characters had me puzzled as to where they fit in.

Finn and Sawyer move forward as a couple and it was “cute” to see. I say cute because it didn’t have a lot of fire and passion for me. While it wasn’t as great as the first, I would still recommend it to read. If you read the first, you obviously want to see where the cliffhanger goes and you do get to see other relationships start to grow and develop as well as get the back story on some.




My eyes went to her throat. I saw her pulse quicken beneath her smooth skin. She twisted her pouty pink lips. Her hesitation only lasted a second before she wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled me down closer so that the tips of our noses touched. Her lips feathered against mine. “Fuck me, Finn.”

“Yes,” I growled.

I may have been the one who told her to say those words but hearing them out of her mouth caused the raging inferno of lust within me to explode beyond control. I had a feeling I’d be hearing those words on repeat in my head for the rest of my life.

Fuck me, Finn.

I lifted her up onto the nearest table and pushed her onto her back. I tore her panties off in one tug and while I devoured her with my eyes, I somehow managed to concentrate enough to unbuckle my belt and push my jeans down over my ass, freeing my throbbing cock.

Sawyer moaned when I parted her legs, stepping between them. The sound was pure fucking heaven. Our tongues danced while we drank each other in. I savored the way her body felt against mine. Hard against soft. I dug my fingers into the flesh of her perfectly round ass before moving them to her pussy where I parted her warm wet folds and strummed her swollen clit because Sawyer was my instrument of choice and only I knew how to play her to perfection.

The look on Sawyer’s face when I inserted a finger inside of her was as if I’d just given her a drug. She was high on the pleasure. Her lids were heavy. Her pupils large and dark. I was dead set on making sure I wrung every bit of pleasure from her gorgeous body and I gave her exactly what she’d asked me for.

Are you freakin kidding me right now????!!!!! I seriously don’t even know where to begin at this point. But I will say this…. Stevie and LP are brilliant evil geniuses. For real. This book is the reason that these two lovely ladies are the reason I love dark reads.

Ronan and Camille are seriously smoking. Only one thing…. They freakin hate each other. Ronan is calm, calculating, mysterious, and devilishly sexy! Camille is sassy, fierce, and a dame fine woman. I have a girl crush on this chick. Seriously, shes bad ass. Theres so much going on in this book that it feels like if I give away one little detail, it will be spoiled. So I’m going to leave it short and sweet. If you love dark reads, asshole alpha males, and sassy females….. READ THIS DAMN BOOK!!!!!

Whew….what the heck did I just read? LOL….so you have Ronan…super hot, super alpha, ruthless, heartless and did i say hot and did I mention the new leader of the Russian Bratva?

Camilla….is a chameleon… that Ronan has his eye on and through a course of events “acquires” her. She thinks her identity is safe but nothing is safe or sacred to Ronan. And this is where the fun starts….Her true identity is revealed and Ronan uses it to his advantage but she does not compy and fights tooth and nail. This makes for some angsty, pins and needle scenes. While Ronan is the head of a very powerful organization he becomes enchanted with Camilla and decides to “keep her”.

While I loved each character individually and they had an amazing banter between them I just didn’t feel the chemistry….which would normally turn me of to a storyline but the struggle for power and control between the two of them scored points and kept me reading. Not to say there was NO chemistry because there was, it just wasn’t in your face. It was more of a power struggle/sexual tension. Also, while there are a few sexual scenes, there was nothing scorching hot. Again, the storyline carried itself so I didn’t really mind it lacked sex scenes. It does end with a cliffhanger and I will be patiently waiting for the next installment in this series.

#1 Player by T Gephart


Lila Callan had an unconventional upbringing—unavoidable when your mother owns a brothel. But while she’d inherited some of her parents’ ‘wacky and offbeat’, she was also strong, independent and incredibly intelligent. The fact she was tall, beautiful and blond was a bonus she never really cared to exploit. She wasn’t uptight; it’s just that long term was more her thing, with zero interest in one-night stands.

Until she met Ryan York and then she isn’t so sure.

Blindingly good looking.
Insane body.
Infectious sense of humor.
And charm for days.
Ryan York was movie star material.
Except that he wasn’t.

He’d turned his back on the idea of hitting the big time, more content with being Eric Larsson’s—his best friend who was a movie star—right-hand man. Despite his laid-back persona, he was a guy who could get stuff done. And women lined up to be done by Ryan. He did not have a problem with that. Not. At. All.

Except his magical panty dropping powers didn’t seem to extend to the lovely Lila. And she wasn’t sure if she was going to teach the #1 player a new game, or find one herself.

One way or another, they were both getting naked.

(Insert review here)

About T. Gephart

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.
T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!
Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

Love, love, loved this book!!!  I have to say I was in a major book slump for the past few months with just nothing good out there.  I was reading poorly written, cliched insta love plots and I was slowly dying inside.  Then this little gem made its way onto my kindle and I could not put it down.  I was laughing, smiling and slowly finding my reading groove back during this book.  I even went as far as to email a few friends telling them to go get it….which has not happened in a very long time.  With this being said I recommend you go check it out so I will just give you the highlights…

Lila is a bad ass chick.  Witty, funny and comes from a very, very hysterical background (one I have yet to see in a book which made me love it all the more). She is down to earth and has seen it all.  She is also not about having relationships..just not her thing. Her witty mouth made me laugh more times then I can count.  She gets sent out on an assignment for work and goes to CA to stay with her best friend.  Said best friend is dating a movie star!  And said movie star has a best friend that Lila has slightly been dreaming about! LOL. But she has preconceived ideas about his libido and philandering ways that are about to be put to the test.

Enter movies stars best friend Ryan….good lord!!  Hotness…sex on a stick.  He appears to be “hanging out and not doing much” but driving around his best friend, the movie star. But there is so much more to Ryan then meets the eye!!!  He assists Lila in her assignment that she has been sent on and their attraction grows even more!

There were so many great funny scenes I lost track and I truly laughed out loud a whole bunch.  The sex scenes were pretty damn steamy which added a cherry on top for me in this book.

I was sincerely sad when i swiped and read the last page to this book..lm hoping the author will have mercy on us and continue with other characters from this book.  Go get this and get comfy!
