REVIEW 

This is the first book in this series that I have read and I can honestly say that I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything.  The story did a pretty good job of helping to fill in any blanks and didn't leave you wondering what you were missing.  With that being said, I think I am going to have to start at the beginning of this series because I want to know more about each of these delectable men.

Charlie's life was lacking in more ways then one, so when her brother offered to move her to New York, she was excited to go.  Not only was she going to be able re-connect with her brother, but she was going to have more opportunities in general.  The last thing she expected was to also re-connect with her first crush and the man who broke her heart.

Ryan has always loved Charlie, but when he left for the military they lost touch.  When she walks back into his life, he can't believe his luck.  He will do whatever it takes to keep her right by his side; however, the last thing he expects is for his family to cause her family any problems.

I really enjoyed getting lost in Ryan and Charlie's story.  I loved how they both still cared for each other after all this time.  With all the twist and turns in this read, you were not sure what was going to happen next. Once I started, I could not put it down.  I wanted them to get their HEA something fierce. I loved how the story ended and to say I am a little shocked is an understatement.  I can't wait to see what arises from the epilogue, but in the meantime, I am going to start at the beginning of this series and fall for each one of these sexy men.

Review of FALLING FAST by Aurora Rose Reynolds



"Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be."

Meet Colton & Gia in
Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds!

NOW AVAILABLE ON ALL RETAILERS!




Blurb
Colton and Gia are from Until June

Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancĂ©, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Review

I have been waiting for this book since we were first introduced to Gia and Colton in Until June.  I am happy to say that it did not disappoint!  I loved every minute of this read.  They were absolutely perfect for each other and I could not be any happier with how everything played out for them.

Gia moved to Tennessee to take care of her grandmother and was determined to do whatever it took to help the only living relative she had left.  When she arrived she realized that things were going to be harder than she expected; however, she doesn't expect to be left homeless shortly after her move.  

Colton is rebuilding his life after being injured as a solider and having his fiancee leave him.  He has no interest in settling down and only plans to help run his parents bar.  However, that changes the day Gia shows up to interview for a job.  He is immediately attracted to her and wants nothing more than to spend time with her.

When Gia needs somewhere to live, Colton doesn't hesitate to offer to let her stay with him.  He wants nothing more than to claim Gia, but Gia is not so sure that is a good idea.  The more time they spend together, the harder it is to fight their attraction and Colton is determined to win this battle of wills.

I could not put this book down.  I had to know what was going to happen next and if Gia was ever going to get a HEA.  Colton was hands down, perfectly written for her.  Ms. Reynolds did an awesome job of bringing two souls together that were in need of each other in order to have true happiness.  I can't recommend this read enough.  If you are like me and love anything written by Aurora, you will not be disappointed by this one!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get a book about Colton's best friend Tide soon!

Review of WHY I'M YOURS by S. Moose & C.A. Harms


Happy Release Day to S. Moose & C.A. Harms!

WHY I'M YOURS is now LIVE!


WHY I'M YOURS 
by CA Harms & S Moose

A point in time, an unexpected event, changes everything.

Reagan’s life was about to begin. A recent college graduate with her career about to launch, she was living in Boston with her best friends. She had everything she worked hard for until one man took it all away, leaving her feeling empty and desolate.

After spending a few years alone, Reagan finally moves to Chicago with her best friend, Aimee, and vows to put her past behind her. When Reagan lands a job at Powers Financial, she never expects to find the one person that would give her back the girl she left behind years ago.

Drew Powers loves being the powerful CFO of a successful corporation and raising his son, Dawson. He's known as "asshat" at the company and it doesn't help calm his temper or patience. Drew's main focus doesn't include love or commitment. Those are the last things on his mind.

When the reserved and beautiful Reagan Halloway bumps into him and tests his patience, he ignores the lust he feels for her until she becomes all he can think about.

Fate is a powerful thing. A force that leads two people to one another and gives them both the one thing they didn’t know they were missing.

REVIEW

Wow.  Honestly, that is the best way to describe this book.  I was not expecting the roller coaster of emotions that I had while reading this one.  My heart absolutely broke for Reagan.  No one should have to go through what she experienced, but she truly came out shinning on the other side.  Throughout the entire book, you kept seeing the strong, wonderful woman that she was and wanted nothing more than for her to get her HEA.

Her first encounter with the gorgeous Drew Powers left a lot to be said.  They didn't see eye to eye on anything and it honestly made their eventual relationship the best it could be.  I absolutely adored Drew.  He didn't push Reagan and let her lead the relationship at a pace she was comfortable with.  Add in the adorable Dawson and you have a combination that would bring any woman to her knees.  

I loved each emotion this book made me feel.  I loved how strong Reagan was and how Drew knew she needed someone like him.  He was truly made for her.  The authors did a wonderful job of creating a story that drug me in and didn't want to let go.  I can't wait to see with is going to happen with Aimee and Remy in the next book.  My only request is for you girls to write faster!!!!!

Review of Wind Chime Summer by Sophie Moss


Wind Chime Summer blurb:
If you open your heart, it will always lead you home…

Since leaving the Army six months ago, Izzy Rivera has closed herself off from everyone and everything. Struggling with a debilitating case of PTSD, she has been fired from three jobs and was recently arrested for assault. Her last hope is a rehab program for veterans on Heron Island, which she was admitted to on a probationary basis and which she must complete to stay out of jail.

After establishing an illustrious career as a marine biologist, Ryan Callahan has returned to Heron Island to open a nonprofit to save the Chesapeake Bay and help his father—a fourth-generation waterman—expand his oyster farm. As one of the primary employers for the veterans’ center, Ryan is counting on his new workforce to make the merging of these two operations a success.

But Ryan underestimated the challenges of employing a group of physically and psychologically wounded veterans—particularly the female Army veteran who wants nothing to do with his nonprofit, his father’s farm, or the peaceful island that’s supposed to help her heal. Can Ryan find a way to convince Izzy to believe in something again? Or will the shell she’s built around her heart trap her in the past forever?

Review:

This book was, without a doubt, amazing.  I have read the previous books in this series and while I think there are wonderful themselves, this book blows them away.  I absolutely fell in love with Izzy and Ryan.  My heart went out to both of them in so many ways.  They both had broken souls that needed mending, but didn't know how to overcome the heartache of their past. However, the more time they spent working together everyday, the walls around them began to weaken.

I could not get enough of this book.  Once I started, I honestly could not put it down.  There are so many layers to this book and these characters, that I just wanted more.  Who am I kidding, I still want more.  Ryan and Izzy have wormed their way into my heart and I can honestly say, this book is going on my re-read list.  The author did a wonderful job of creating characters you could connect to and identify with.  I loved each and every word and I can't wait to see who story she graces us with next!

EXCERPT REVEAL
LIZ

“There is a tall, handsome and might I add dreamy hunk of a man waiting just outside for you.”

I tried not to laugh at the wide-eyed expression of the teenage girl standing in my doorway. She was awestruck apparently, and the way she was smiling had to cramp her cheeks.

“Did you get his name?” I asked, already knowing who it was.

Her smile faltered as she looked over her shoulder, then back to me. “I forgot to ask,” she said in a high-pitched voice. “I guess I was distracted.”

It was my turn to smile, “Believe me when I say I know exactly how that can happen.” She looked a little relieved. “His name is Ben, and you can send him in.”

With a nod, she stepped out and within seconds he appeared in the open doorway.

“Good morning,” he said as he moved in and sat on the edge on my desk. His large frame practically swallowed up the surface beneath him. “You avoiding me again?”

“No.” I leaned back and crossed my arms over my chest. “I’ve actually been busy.”

He watched me closely, as if I would somehow show him I was lying. Arching my brow, I remained in place and his smile grew wider. “Have lunch with me.” It wasn’t a request.

“Busy,” I replied, holding up the stack of papers on my desk and giving them a little shake.

“Dinner then. I’ll even bring it to you if you can't get away.”

“What are we having?” I asked, still not yet agreeing.

“What do you want?” His eyes remained locked on mine as he gave me a mischievous grin. Ben and I had developed this little flirty game. In fact, we’d pretty much mastered it. I knew he wanted me, and I wanted him. That was never the issue. I just had to learn to get past my hesitance and fears of what could go wrong.

“Steak,” I finally said, ignoring the flutter in my stomach. “Seasoned vegetables and garlic roasted potatoes.”

“Can we forego the garlic? I kinda wanna kiss you later and I don’t want any excuses from you. If I add garlic into the mix, well, I’m setting myself up for disappointment.”

I couldn't help the laughter that bubbled up and spilled from me. “You’re insane.”

“For you, yes.”

Review of DRUNK ON YOU by Harper Sloan


    Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]

It was supposed to be fun. A mutual use of each other's bodies. To be a ruse to the world around us. I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.   One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment. He warned me not to fall for him, and I should've listened.   He intoxicated me. He made me crave him. He ruined me. In the end, I'll never be the same.

    REVIEW 

Absolutely perfect! I am a sucker for anything written by Harper Sloan, so when I found out this one was making its debut, I couldn't wait! Needless to say, it did not disappoint. 

Shane and Nikki had been attracted to each other for a while, but they were attached to other people. When they finally got the opportunity to give into their desires, it was more than either one could have hoped for. Their feelings for each other grow every day and they have no desire to end their relationship anytime soon. But when their past comes back to haunt them, would their new feelings be enough to hold them together?

I absolutely loved Shane and Nikki's story. They were perfect for each other in every way. I loved how Nikki made Shane realize that she would support him in each and every way and nothing would make her stop loving him. I don't think the author could have written them any better, Nikki was the perfect soft to Shane's hard. Once again, Harper has hit it out of the park and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!
