Her Defiant Heart by Monica Murphy
Publication Date: March 29th, 2018
Genre: New Adult Romance


Life can feel like a cruel joke. I grew up poor and motherless, with a father who never got over his wife’s abandonment. But now he’s gone too, and I’m dead set on finding the woman who so carelessly tossed me aside when I was a baby.

I want revenge. And I’m going to get back at my mother any way that I can.

I change my name. Start my new life in college, and just happen to cross paths with the gorgeous, ultra-rich Rhett Montgomery. He’s immediately interested in me, not that I’m surprised.

You see, I planned it that way. I meant for him to find me. He’s the one connection to my mother, and I’m using him, so I can destroy her. But I didn’t plan on Rhett being so charming. Sweet. Sexy.

And I definitely didn’t plan on falling for him either…

I was pretty excited to read this one, I mean who doesn’t love a good revenge story? So Jensen had an overall pretty shitty childhood. Her Mother abandoned her and her Dad pretty early on and her Dad just couldn’t handle it. So she was pretty much left to fend for herself. When tragedy strikes, she just can’t take anymore and plans to seek revenge on the women she holds responsible for every bad thing that has ever happened in her life. Her Mother.

“I’ve been around. Lurking close by, on the sidelines like some sort of twisted stalker, which I suppose I am.”

Ok. I have to give Jensen some massive credit for her whole revenge plan. I mean this girl went all out. Changed her name and moved to a new town to attend the same college of the one person she thinks can get her close enough to her Mother to destroy her. She mapped out every single detail, but as soon as she met Rhett Montgomery her plan veered right of course.

“Maybe he actually does like me. And god maybe I actually like him too.”

Jensen and superhot, sexy Rhett start spending a lot of time together. I mean after all that’s part of the plan, right? But yeah, what Jensen didn’t expect or plan for was the feelings she developed towards Rhett. We see her struggle a lot with what to do. Will her need for revenge continue or will she let it go for a chance to be truly happy with Rhett? I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

“I can’t believe he came back for me. Me. Everyone leaves. They don’t care about me. They never did.”



“Your friends are calling you,” I finally say.

He glances over his shoulder, then returns his attention to me. “They can wait.”

I’m surprised he’s putting talking to me above wanting to spend time with his friends. “Well, my homework can’t.” I gesture to the open textbook by my laptop. “Nice to see you again.”

“Nice to see you again? That’s all I get?” He slides into the booth seat across from mine, leaning across the table like he wants to get closer to me. “I bet you don’t even remember my name.”

“I bet you don’t remember mine either,” I toss back at him, tacking on an annoying giggle after I say it.

He makes a face, like he knows I’m fake as hell. “Jensen.”


His smile is back, wider than ever. “You should come sit with us.”

“No, thank you.” My voice is prim, like a snotty rich girl’s would be. Wouldn’t they find it hilarious to know that I spent my teenage years living in a mobile-home-slash-trailer park, in the decrepit old fifth-wheel my dad called our new home right before I started eighth grade.

One brow lifts. “My friends would love to meet you.”

“I doubt that.”

“It’s true.” He glances over his shoulder again, and they call out to him, a couple of choice words ringing in the air. The waitress glares, stomping over to their table to give them a lecture I suppose, and Rhett whirls around so he’s facing me once more, his expression full of amusement. “Or maybe not.”

“Go hang out with your friends,” I tell him gently, wanting to give the impression that I am the perfectly understanding girlfriend. He might not have those types of serious thoughts about me—yet—but my good behavior can enter his subconscious, right?

“Jensen. I want to see you again.” He reaches across the table and touches the top of my right hand, his warm fingers practically burning my skin. I snatch my hand away from his, my fingers trembling as I clutch my hands together in my lap.

One casual touch from him and I feel like I’m going to erupt in flames.

It’s terrifying.

What He Always Knew by Kandi Steiner ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!



What He Always Knew by Kandi Steiner
Release Date: March 29th, 2018
What He Doesn’t Know Duet, book 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Left or right.

It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.

If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.

If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.

I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn’t know I had.

And I love them both.

My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.

The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.

Left or right.

All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

This book picks up right where the first one left off and thank goodness because OMG I needed to know what was going to happen with these three characters that I was so invested in. I was so torn after finishing the first book. Who will Charlie choose and who’s heart would be shattered? My heart was pulled back and forth like a game of tug a war on who I wanted her to be with, who I thought was her true love, her home.

“I was at the fork I knew I’d eventually get to all along, the decision I never wanted to make between two choices I never knew I had before two months ago.”

Sometimes I find stories like this one have some level of predictability, but oh no, not this one. Not by a freaking long shot. The author wrote a story that holds our hearts and minds hostage until the very end. Where I ended book one torn, I knew without a doubt pretty early on in this book whose “team” I was on. As I read on and obsessed over who she would choose, there was no clue or indication.

“Just..give me this time with your heart before you decide to give it all to him.”

Who will Charlie choose? I can’t tell you that, but what I can tell you is this book was crazy emotionally intense and it was so damn good. Kandi Steiner is such a talented writer and in this duet she gives us some amazingly, unforgettable characters. If you are in the mood for a ton of angst and a hell of a story then pick up this duet and take a journey with Charlie, Cameron and Reese.

“We are all sinners. We all make mistakes. But today, I would right my wrongs, and I would make my choice, and I would accept the consequences as they came.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Photographer: Perrywinkle Photography, Lauren Perry
Cover Designer: Kandi Steiner


On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

But they don’t know me at all.

I don’t even know me.

Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

But there is no longer a home.

This book, oh my aching heart. When I read the blurb I just knew I had to read it. I went in with high hopes that it was going to be good and Kandi Steiner delivered! There was so much love and heartache and crazy emotions that just filled the pages in this story. I was invested within the first few pages and oh my goodness this book was intense. SPOILERS! Yes, there is a love triangle and so yes, there is cheating and hey, if we are throwing it all out there I might as well mention there is a huge ass cliffhanger. But please don’t let any of that deter you from reading this book. It is truly one of the best books I have read in a long time.

“They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I lived inside of? It had three.”

Charlie and Cameron were a happily married and loving couple once upon a time. But profound loss changes you, it takes the person you once were and shapes you into someone different. So this is how we meet two people struggling with the after of what happened to them. And my goodness my heart ached for the both of them. Charlie just trying to go on with any semblance of normal she could find and desperately trying to stay connected to Cam who shut himself off from her.

“I would wait for her. I would wait forever.”

Just when you feel like Charlie can’t take anymore and is teetering on the edge of breaking, she is introduced to the new music teacher at the school she loves and works at. That teacher just happens to be Reese, the first boy she ever loved. These two right away you can feel that there is so much history there and so much love. And so begins the love triangle and my goodness, it’s a crazy intense one.

“The ring on her finger was the symbol of her commitment to another man, but it didn’t matter. I loved her anyway.”

I struggled so much throughout this book with who I thought was right and wrong. Or even if there was a right and a wrong. It was tough because Charlie and Cam loved each other and what happened just broke them. They didn’t deserve it, and I think both just dealt with it the only way they could and got lost. Then there was Reese who had his own demons, but I think truly loved Charlie too. I don’t know where the Author will take us next with this one, and I only hope my aching heart can handle it because I am desperate to see if these three find their way home.

“They say there are two sides to every story, and it was in that moment, in that dark, desperate snapshot of my life that I realized I hadn’t asked him for his.”

Elite (A Privileged Novel) by Carrie Aarons ~ Release Blitz w/ Reviews

RB Banner (4)

Elite Ebook Cover

Title: Elite
A Privileged Novel
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 18, 2018 


A PRIVILEGED standalone, get ready for secret societies, international romance, and college debauchery…
If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.

Eloise Mason knows what it’s like to live among the privileged. Seeking a change from the upper crust society of Europe, she flies halfway across the world for a semester abroad in the one place guaranteed to toss responsibility out the window and provide some good, old-fashioned fun; college in The United States.

Except nothing at the picturesque, Ivy-covered university in Vermont appears as it seems. And after a mysterious invitation arrives on her doorstep, curiosity wins over the need to turn her back on games meant for the rich and ruthless.

Secret societies, risky tasks, and an inner circle to rival the royals. But it may just be one American boy who threatens to be the most dangerous endeavor of all.

Colton Reiter defines the word idolized at Jade Mountain University. In fact, he practically rules the roost from the three point line of the basketball court. The college’s star point guard, he is a god and treated as such; professional scouts at every game, teachers looking the other way when it comes to grades, and girls falling into his lap at the snap of a finger. He wants for nothing, or at least that’s what he wants everyone to believe.

But when he meets the sassy girl with the British accent who could care less about his status, her very existence threatens to unveil the skeletons buried deep in the back of his closet.

With stakes this high, and hearts on the line, can they turn their backs on power and popularity before the ivory tower comes crashing down on their heads?

What a great freaking read!!!! I loved this book. The tension passion and angst had me completely captivated. The characters although college age were super mature and not petty. This made me love the book so much more.

There is some serious stuff going on in this book and I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see how it all played out. The pages were flipping like crazy for me today.

Great read! I can’t wait to see what happens with the next Carrie read for sure.

The blurb and cover sucked me right in with this one. A secret society and the whole if you’re in then you’re part of the most Elite group on campus and if you’re not? Well, you’ll soon find out what happens when you dive into the story.

“If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.”

Eloise knows what it like to be at the top of the privileged circle and to be the girl everyone wants to be around. Power, privilege and a ton of money. But she also knows what it’s like to not to have all those things. Needing to find herself and take a break from Europe’s top culinary school Eloise decides to take a year and head to study in America. She lands herself at Jade Mountain University in Vermont. All she was looking for was a normal year, but when a mysterious invite appears in her dorm room, that normal year she had planned? Yeah, well that flies right out the window.

“I’m not prepared for the gorgeous wall of man meat standing in front of me. Taller than London Bridge and built like a Michelangelo statue on steroids. If I was considering strapping suitors, this one would make the cut.”

Colton Reiter is the “it” guy at Jade Mountain, the basketball god that every female on campus wants. But when he sets his sights on the spunky, smart mouthed and beautiful Eloise he isn’t letting her go. He loves that Eloise doesn’t care who he is and she loves that he can just be real with her. But is he? What happens when the person you trust the most has the biggest secret to hide? This book is filled with mystery, secret societies, love and whole boatload of drama.

“I’m not looking for anything, and yet, it seems Eloise Mason was sent here specifically to change my mind on that.”

This is my first read by this author and I had no idea going in that this was the second book in the series. It says it can be read as a stand alone and it read that way to me. So there were a lot of things I really liked about this book and honestly some things I just didn’t. I loved the relationship between Eloise and Colton, they were both great characters. I loved the whole idea of this book but there was just so much going on, at times it was just way too much and I feel like the development in some parts was lacking. Overall though I loved the main characters and it was a good read. I do look forward to reading more from this author.

Sometimes best friends are each others halves that make a whole, two people that have a bond so deep that it’s hard to tell where one person ends and the other begins. This is how it was for Elara and Kam. They were everything to each other. Until one day, one moment that changed everything.

“Kam was my beginning, my middle, and my end. Without him, I’m lost. Without him, I don’t even know who I am.”

Struggling to find a new sense of normalcy after her heart is shattered ,Elara finds a friend in the most unlikely person. Kane is Kam’s older brother. Where Kam is easy going, Kane is a quite mystery. The only thing Elara knows is that she is drawn to him and the two find comfort in each other while they each try to come to terms with a devastating loss.

“I let it all go, knowing with complete certainty that nothing will ever be the same again.”

This book was such an emotional journey. My heart hurt for Elara as she carried such a heavy burden of guilt that only seemed to increase as her feelings towards Kane grew. Truthfully I didn’t want to like Kane because I loved Kam so much but I ended up loving them both. Elara was such a strong character and I just wanted her to forgive herself and let go of the secrets she carried. Kam was sweet and amazing and Kane was the calm during the storm that Elara desperately needed. In the end Elara and Kane were two people so destroyed by tragedy just trying to survive and who never expected to find love along the way. This is an emotional story and there is a lot of heartache but there is also joy and healing. If you’re in the mood for a beautiful and emotional story you should definitely read this one.

Trading Yesterday by Kahlen Aymes ~ Book Tour w/ Review



amazon (1).jpg

Something inside me snapped.

“Chase, I need you. Please, come.”

Teagan’s words screamed from the screen of my phone. My heart started pounding and I started to sweat. I felt like I might pass out as I was sucked into a vortex of emotions and memories I’d tried desperately to forget.

Teagan Tessler was the love of my life. My professional soccer career was a big part of the future we planned to have together, but an offer with Arsenal, one of England’s premier soccer teams, sent me to London a year ahead of schedule. Just months after I left, Teagan betrayed me with my best friend without an explanation. I was completely and utterly destroyed.

Six years later, I can finally breathe again and my professional and personal life is in a good place; but, now this. I’d have to be insane to even consider ripping open those old wounds, but whatever she needed, it had to be huge.

The truth of my feelings resonated: I should shut off the phone and forget her forever, but my traitorous heart told me to get on a plane, no questions asked.

One decision can ruin your life… Maybe another one can save it.

From USA Today bestselling author, Kahlen Aymes, Trading Yesterday is a sexy roller coaster of emotion, ultimate loss, desperate longing, betrayal and forgiveness that will restore your faith in unconditional love. You’ll be left gasping for more! The Remembrance Trilogy readers will love this book.

Teagan and Chase were young and madly in love. They were certain they would be together forever and had their whole future planned out. Chase was a professional soccer player and when the opportunity of a lifetime came along, Teagan made a choice that she truly thought was best for the person she loved most in life. But with one lie, one ultimate betrayal, she broke more than just her own heart.

“Chase, I need you. Please come.”

Six years passed since Chase last saw the love of his life, the women that had owned and then shattered his heart. But with one text he was headed towards Teagan and was completely unprepared for what awaited him when they came face to face again.

 “As the years passed, I got better at pushing the pain down and hiding it from others, but it was always there, eating away at my soul like a disease.”

Teagan has been keeping a secret, a huge one that she never wanted Chase to find out but now she has no choice. When they meet back up after six long years tension is super high but it’s also  so apparent that they still love each other very much. But once the secret is out can Chase possibly forgive her?

“ Tell me not to go, and I won’t go. You’re the most important thing to me.”

This was my first read by this Author. It was an emotional story with two people who were desperately in love and both only doing what they thought was best for the other. I liked the characters and the story but had a hard time feeling the connection between Teagan and Chase. It just wasn’t there for me as much as I wanted to be, so I did struggle in parts with this book. It was a good read overall and I did like it, I just didn’t love it. If you are in the mood for an emotional and heartfelt story this may be the one for you.
