What a crazy, turbulent ride of emotions. After the back and forth between Danielle and Mike and the crash and burn in book one…this story throws the two back together after an accident lands Mike in the hospital. Lots of drama, people hurt, tension pulling everyone every which way…this story has it all. It was freaking intense! I loved the stable, safe influence of Jason and the journey towards a wiser, healthier Danielle. But…be prepared for angst and tears and not so wise decisions as well. Lots of peaks and valleys from beginning to end. I wasn’t sure how the book was going to end but happily I was smiling when I met the last page. Worth the bumpy ride for an emotionally wrenching story.

London Prep Book Four, The Key by Jillian Dodd ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

London Prep Book Four, The Key by Jillian Dodd is LIVE!⠀

It’s my final day at Kensington School, and my exchange is coming to an end. My flight for New York leaves tomorrow, and I’m not ready to say goodbye to the boys I love.

But then three key things happened at school. Noah told me to forget about him, Harry broke up with me, and I finally kissed Noah Williams.

When I kissed him in the lunchroom in front of everyone, it was out of anger. I wanted to prove to Harry that I didn’t have feelings for Noah.

But I was wrong.

The kiss was incredible. But it was also a mistake. Harry watched it happen, Mohammad sat in shock, and Noah told me that he would never forgive me. I made a huge, public mess of things. But thankfully, it’s time for me to leave. I’m going to take Noah’s advice and cut all ties.

No good-byes.
No apologies.
No more heartbreak.

I’m going to leave the three boys I love in London, hoping that they’ll be able to pick up the pieces of their friendship. And maybe in the process, they’ll find the pieces of my broken heart.

Because I know I’ll be going to New York without it.

What the…Jillian! How could you end it like this? The pages just flew by as I read this story and before I knew it I was gaping at the end. It’s finally time for Mallory to go home and due to her impulsiveness…she may have burned a few bridges. But then everything takes a huge twist and Mallory is not prepared for her next undertaking. Loved the boys and how they are dealing with the post Mallory apocalypse. So entertaining and teen angst bubbling over just about every freaking where. I’m addicted to this series like Mallory is hooked on Noah’s sweatpants. I’ll be over here in the corner…waiting for my next Boys Club fix.

I have read several books by Monica James and loved them all. I already knew going in, this book was going to be good but this book wasn’t just good, this book was EVERYTHING! It was dark. It was evil. It was sexy. Holy hell, it was so sick and twisted! And can we also just take a minute to appreciate that amazing cover? First off it’s so damn sexy and it’s also everything I imagine when I think of Punky.

I feel like nothing I say will be able to convey just how amazing this book truly is. I also don’t want to say too much for fear of giving anything away so this review will be a short one. This is definitely one of the books you have to go into as blind as possible so you can truly enjoy firsthand every fucked up twist and turn on this never ending crazy train. I can’t remember the last time I devoured the pages of a book so quickly. As soon as I finished it, I went back and read it again. I think I loved it even more the second time around. You don’t want to miss a thing while reading this book. Every single word is so important and every single thing about this book is mind blowing. Monica James raised the bar to a whole new level with Thy Kingdom Come and I am 100% here for it!

“It’s in the wrong, corrupt, and violent where I thrive.”

There’s a war going down in Ireland between the Kellys and the Doyles. It’s a war that started long ago. Somewhere in the midst of all the chaos and bloodshed was Puck Connor Kelly who at five years old watched while safely hidden away as his Mother took her last breath. He never forgot what he saw that day. Now that Puck aka Punky is all grown up all hell is about to break loose and no one is safe from the monsters that are about to come out to play.

“No matter what it takes, no matter how long, I’m going to kill every last Doyle and burn their motherfucking kingdom to the ground.”

Punky trusts very few people but then along comes Poppy aka Babydoll. The two of them are drawn to one another right away but Poppy has a secret. One that could destroy all of Punky’s carefully laid plans. He knows she’s hiding something but will it be too late by the time he realizes what it is? I absolutely loved both of these characters so much! I can not recommend this book enough. It’s a must read but buckle up and hold tight because it’ll take you on one hell of a ride.

“We’re inches apart, and the world soon fades into the background so it’s merely us. It’s quiet here.”

Pure Seduction by Ella Frank ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review & Excerpt!

Pure Seduction, an all-new emotional second-chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Small towns are definitely not for me. Probably because I was born in one, raised in one, and eventually run out of one. The understanding was that I would one day return to Chamberlin California. After all, it is my namesake. What my father didn’t count on however, was that once he sent me away, I would never come back—at least not until he was gone.

Which brings me to now, his wake, at the family winery that was supposed to be mine. It also brings me to her. The sweet girl I left behind. The girl who has since grown into the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on—Laurel Anderson.

She’s looking at me as though she wishes I was the one she watched get buried this morning. But she’s out of luck. I’m alive and kicking. I’m also stuck in this town with nothing to do but wait until the will is read.

Well, nothing to do but see if I can seduce the pure and passionate Laurel, and change that anger I see in her eyes to something just as fiery…desire.


The last time I saw Noah Chamberlin, I was a doe-eyed innocent and he was the boy of my dreams. My future was all planned out down to the wedding dress, until one morning I woke up and he was gone.

You’d think after all these years, I’d feel the same blind indignation and rage that has haunted me since that day. Instead, the second I set eyes on him again, I felt something altogether unwanted and unexpected—lust.

If the rumors are true, he’s only going to be in Chamberlin for a few days. I can handle that, as long as he stops looking at me as though he’s thinking about the last time we were together. 

But when Noah’s forced to stay and run the family business, it puts us in dangerously close proximity. And in a town this small, that can only mean one thing—trouble.

Pure Seduction is a pure, sexy, sweet second chance romance. Noah…oh boy..that boy who went away came back as a confident, capable man who knows what he wants…Laurel. Laurel has grown into a smart, independent, knowledgeable woman who complements Noah perfectly. I loved the chemistry between these two and the flirty banter. I also thought the connection they shared from teens to the present was sweet and emotionally tugged at my heartstrings. Very entertaining start to a new small town series and I’m totally invested in the Chamberlin family. Bring the other two brothers on. I’m ready!


“Laurel Anderson.”

     My heart all but stopped at the sound of my name in that smooth, seductive timbre, and my fingers tightened on the handle.

     “Hi.” Brilliant. After all these years, that was what came out of my mouth.

     A smile slowly curved Noah’s lips, as though he knew I was tongue-tied, and I wanted to kick myself—or him—for it.

     “Hi yourself.”

     I swallowed and tried to remember that somewhere inside my head I possessed a brain. Now if I could just locate it, that would be fantastic. “I, uh, I didn’t know you were coming today.”

     “No? Everyone else in town seemed to.”

     “Well, you know how it goes. You can’t rely on everything you hear.”

     “Ah. So you heard—you just didn’t believe it.”

     “I didn’t really think about it either way.” Liar. “I’m sorry for your loss, though. Harry was—”

     “An A-grade bastard?”

     My eyes widened at the cool edge to Noah’s voice. It was a tone I’d never heard from him before. But then again, I didn’t know this man, so I had no point of reference.

     “That seems harsh, huh?”

     “It seems…” Noah’s eyes locked on me with an intensity I felt all the way to my bones. “Honest.”

     He shifted the wine bottle from one hand to the other, then he held it up by the neck and asked, “A good year?”

     I focused on the label, a 2012 Pinot Noir. “It was a great year.”

     Noah nodded and turned the bottle around so he could look at it again. “And you should know, or so I’m told. You manage this place now.”

     I wondered who had told him. His mother? Or one of his siblings? I’d never imagined a career in the wine business, and I certainly hadn’t imagined one here at his family’s winery. But circumstances had left me little choice, and now I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

     “I do. I’m also the head sommelier.”

     Noah let out a sound of disbelief that made my spine stiffen. I was good at my job—damn good at it.

     “I hope that won’t be a problem for you.”

     “A problem?” Noah shook his head. “No. I was just thinking how my family hasn’t changed at all. They still like their secrets.”

     The temperature in the room dropped back to arctic, and as I was about to hightail it out of there, Noah took a step forward. I plastered my back to the door and, cursing myself for showing my hand—and my nerves—counted back from ten before daring to look him in the eye.

     That was a mistake. I recognized those eyes and the thick lashes that curtained them. I also recognized the look in them right now. It was one of curiosity and interest.

     “I wasn’t so sure about coming back here when I showed up earlier.”

     His gaze roved over my face, as though he were searching for the girl he once knew, and I wondered if he saw parts of her in there.

     “But suddenly I find myself even happier that that asshole up and died. Otherwise I’d never have known you were here.”

     I wasn’t surprised in the slightest that my working here had been kept quiet. Harry had worked really hard to remove me from Noah’s life. He wasn’t about to tell him I was still around.

     “Well, um, I don’t want to hold you up anymore, and I need to get back to your mother’s guests.” I turned to open the door, but when I felt his hand on my shoulder, my feet froze.

     “Looking to make a quick escape again, Bonnie?”

     I closed my eyes and for a second allowed myself to remember the first time he’d ever called me that. Then I quickly shoved it aside, not willing to allow in the emotions and vulnerabilities those kind of memories would bring.

     “Do you blame me?”

     There was a pause, and the tension simmering in the air made it even more imperative that I get out of there right now.

     “No. I guess I don’t. But before you go?”

     “Yes?” As his hand fell away, I let out a silent sigh of relief.

     “I was wondering if you could tell me the best place to stay in town?”

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

Piper Rayne
Release Date: February 23

Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery?

I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water.

Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of who she is gets uncovered. Then the rumor mill goes into overdrive when she announces she’s staying to open a bookstore in the building next to mine—throwing a big wrench into my plans to buy that empty building.

I quickly find myself in a tug-of-war since my business partner/brother is upset she’s ruined the opportunity to expand our business. I try to keep my distance, but I’ve got one sister with a gossip column on the local radio station and two meddling grandmas setting me up as a tour director.

And now I kind of like the idea of our new neighbor staying. But small-town life isn’t for the weak—time will tell if she has what it takes to be one of us.

I really like all of this author’s books but for some reason the first book of this new series didn’t connect with me. It takes place in a very small intimate town in Alaska. A town where everyone knows each other and their business. A well known figure passes away and leaves her sewing store to her daughter Clara. Clara has a group of tight knit friends and I have a feeling they will each be getting a book. Clara finds out that she actually has a sister that she never knew when she shows up to the reading of the will.

Cade is one of the Greene’s, a well known family in town. Successful and good looking, he is working at the family bar when Presley walks in. There is an instant attraction between these two and their banter and funny one liners kept me going to the very end.

Cade has past relationship issues and Presley is dealing with owning her own store and a sister she has never known. Can she handle a relationship with a handsome stranger too? For me, it was hard to feel the “love” connection. It was also hard to empathize with the two long lost sisters reuniting. I wanted more from this series and I couldn’t completely lose myself in the story. There was no angst, no drama…it was pretty docile except for a few sexy love scenes. I am looking forward to reading future books in this series with my fingers crossed!
