Review of UNTIL SADIE by Sarah Curtis

 




Title: Until Sadie
A Happily Ever Alpha World Novel
Author: Sarah Curtis
Publisher: Boom Factory Publishing, LLC
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 15, 2021


BLURB

Cruising Pacific Coast Highway, Dean Keller had one thing on his mind—the job he needed to nail down. 

New city. New connections. New life. That was Dean’s focus. 

Until Sadie. 

One look at the fiery pixie with emerald eyes and Dean knew he had to make her his. 

The timing couldn’t be worse. Things were… complicated. 

Dean should’ve walked away from her. 

He didn’t. 

Couldn’t. 

But he should have. 

Because too soon the truth would be revealed. 

And Dean would be left desperate to prove to Sadie his love for her was real. 

Even if not everything else was. 

Until Sadie is part of the Aurora Rose Reynolds' Happily Ever Alpha World. If you loved Until Cobi, then you will want to read Until Sadie.



REVIEW


First let me say that I am a huge fan of Aurora Rose Reynolds and I love the Happily Ever Alpha world.  However, this is my first book by Sarah Curtis so I wasn't sure what to expect.  With that being said, let me just say that this book lived up to my high standards.  I absolutely loved Dean and how he knew Sadie was it for him after first meeting her.  I loved how he fought for their love and to prove to her that she was his whole world.  

Sadie fell just as hard for Dean, but was hesitant to get involved with him because he worked for her brother and she knew her brother was into something bad.  I loved how she finally gave him a chance and he proved to her that he would do anything for her.  

This book had insta love, heat, romance, suspense and most importantly, a HEA.  I really enjoyed this read and the author's writing style.  The HEA world has successfully introduced me to a new author and now I am off to purchase some of her previous books!

Review of HER MARINE NEXT DOOR by Aliyah Burke & Giveaway

HER MARINE NEXT DOOR

by Aliyah Burke 

Publication Date: December 14, 2020 

Genres: Adult, Entangled: Brazen, Contemporary, Romance

Amazon: https://amzn.to/349Pn5L iTunes: https://apple.co/3oP4xW2 B&N: https://bit.ly/3n9D80m Kobo: https://bit.ly/3qUkEmL Google Play: https://bit.ly/2W8sX0n Amazon CA: https://amzn.to/2Wcm9id Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/37dvAUL Amazon AUS: https://amzn.to/2IK2sez

SYNOPSIS

My next door neighbor Parker Jax is not my type. He’s covered in tats, rides a motorcycle, and his parties keep me up all night. The fact he’s sexy as sin doesn’t change the fact we are oil and water.

I’m a quiet artist. He’s a rowdy marine. I’ve got a broken heart. I’m convinced he doesn’t have a heart at all.

Thankfully, my bad-boy neighbor is on leave from the Marines for only thirty days. But then the jerk has to go and show me that he has a soft side beneath all those hard muscles. He actually leaves his own party to help me, and he didn’t even have to.

Fantastic. Now I owe him.

I’m not worried, though. What are the chances he’ll need me to do anything before the month is up?

But when a woman shows up with a kid at her side, knocking on Parker’s door, it turns out those chances are pretty good…

REVIEW

Aliyah Burke is a new author for me so I wasn't sure what to expect.  The blurb sounded interesting so I thought I would give her a try and boy, am I happy I did.  I really enjoyed this book.  The chemistry between Parker and Skylar is off the charts, but both are hesitant to do anything about it.  Parker thinks Skylar is too good for him and Skylar thinks Parker is nothing more than a party boy.  When unforeseen forces push them together, they soon find out that there is more to each other than what meets the eyes.  

The characters pull you in and keep you turning the pages to see if they both get what they need.  You want them to get their HEA and for everything to work out, but you know that they have a lot of obstacles to face.  I loved how Parker was adamant that Skylar would be his and how Skylar made him work for it.  All in all, I'm glad that I took a chance on a new author and I can't wait to see what she has in the future for us!

Review of RESCUED by Evan Grace




Title: Rescued
An Everyday Heroes World Novel
Author: Evan Grace
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2020


BLURB

Evan Grace’s Rescued is a hot, intense, emotional contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes Worlds project.

After spending the last few years globetrotting for her travel vlog, Gwen Malone has finally decided to come home to Sunnyville, California. Her plan was to spend time with her family and friends, and decide where to go next. 

The last thing she expected was to be attracted to the tattooed police officer, Maverick Graves. At her welcome home party her sister and best friend warn her to stay away, that he’s a player and commitmentphobic. That was the plan except she saw him everywhere — sometimes with other women. That only solidified that Gwen needed to avoid him.

To Maverick, Gwen was untouchable. Yes, she was gorgeous, he was very interested, but she was his boss’s daughter and he wasn’t going to go there no matter how much he wanted to. 

A simple favor for her dad and she was in a van with him driving along the coast. When an accident traps them together things get real, quick. When they’re finally rescued they can’t seem to stay apart, no matter how hard they try. 

Things can change in an instant — will they both give in to what they really want? Or deny their true feelings, losing the other forever.




REVIEW

I am a huge fan of Evan Grace and could not wait for the opportunity to read this book.  She has such a way of writing her characters that draw you in and keeps you turning the page.  Gwen is the daughter of the police chief and comes back home for some R&R before her next assignment.  When she spots Maverick at her dad's BBQ, she can't deny that he is hot, but there also seems to be more pulling her towards him.

Maverick is a local cop and wants no part of a relationship.  He likes his no strings attached lifestyle and is no hurry to change that, but when he spots a beautiful woman at his boss's BBQ, he is drawn to her like he has never been drawn to anyone before.  However, when he finds out that she is the Chief's daughter, be knows his attraction to her can never go anywhere.  But is seems as though fate had other plans because the more they crossed each other's paths, the more the attraction to each other grows.

I loved this book.  I loved how they tried to resist each other, but were truly just wasting their time denying what was right in front of them.  I loved how Gwen made Maverick realize that he can have more if he just opens his heart.  They were truly perfect for each other.  I loved the banter and the constant back and forth between the characters.  This book had it all and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next!!

EXCERPT

When I step into the bedroom, I find Gwen sticking a pair of black, sexy, stiletto heels in what she calls her ‘weekender bag.’ 

I wrap my arms around her from behind. “Whatcha got in the bag?” 

“A hot little number to wear out tonight.” Gwen rubs her ass against my dick, which he appreciates because I immediately get hard. “Naughty boy, is that a nightstick in your pocket or are you happy to see me?” 

I throw my head back, laughing harder than I think I ever have. She turns in my arms, wrapping her arms around my waist, smiling widely up at me. I grab her ass and thrust against her. “You like my big nightstick, don’t you?” I bite at her neck and she squeals. The doorbell interrupts us. “Fuck, it’s probably Troy.” I kiss her before leaving her to finish.

Review of UNTIL TALON by Aurora Rose Reynolds & Giveaway!





Title: Until Talon
Series: Until Him #4
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 4, 2020


Blurb

When Mia Allenton’s sister calls, asking her for help after finding out her husband cheated, Mia packs up her life in Montana and moves to Tennessee to be there for her and her three girls. As Mia begins to settle in, a tornado comes through, bringing along with it Talon Mayson, a man determined to prove to her that good men do exist.

Talon knows he’s got his work cut out for him when it comes to earning Mia’s trust, but slowly her walls start to crumble, and they begin to build something beautiful. Unfortunately, someone from Talon’s past isn’t happy about him being back in Tennessee, and they’re willing to do anything to prevent him from ever being happy.

Is the Boom between Talon and Mia strong enough to weather the storm that’s coming?




                     Review

This book is one more reason why I will buy and re-read any book that Aurora Rose Reynolds writes.  She is, without a doubt, one of my favorite authors and I know that anything she writes I will get lost in.  She has the ability to write a book that you end up so invested in, that you don't want it to end.  This book is no different.  

Mia moved to Tennessee to help her sister and takes a job at a car dealership.  While it's not her dream job, it pays her well and she seems to be good at it.  The last thing she expects is a tornado to wreak havoc on her day and ending up in the arms of a sexy stranger.

When Talon crosses paths with the sexy woman he saves from a tornado, he knows that his life will never be the same.  He knows she is his boom and he will do whatever it takes to wear her down and make her his.  While it may take more time than he anticipates, he knows that she will be worth all his time and effort.

When Mia finally gives in to his charms, she doesn't know what to expect.  She has not had the best experiences with men so she isn't sure how to take Talon.  But the more she is around him, the more she knows that his intentions are true and he would do anything for her.  That includes helping her family when the unexpected happens.

I loved Mia for Talon!!  She made him work for it and didn't just fall at his feet like some other people would.  I love how he was so patient with her and let her set the pace for their relationship.  I could not get enough of them and to be honest, I need more!!  I think I am going to have to re-read this one already because I am not ready to let them go.  I am anxious to see what happens between Ceecee and Winston and I hope we get their story soon!  Oh, and let's not forget Bax, I need his story ASAP!!  Who am I kidding? I want all the stories ASAP!!!    

Great job Aurora!  I can't wait to read whatever you have in store for us next!

My past taught me to play it safe. To stay far away from handsome men who promised it all. My life was good without them. Stable, secure, predictable.

From the outside, Stone Ridge appeared to be a small, welcoming town in Montana with sweet shops and friendly faces. Yet no one knew the true powers it held, the ancient secrets that were hidden, or the pain that had unfolded when the ancestors were met with a force so great it left them all in shambles.

The key to resurfacing the powers of the land fell into the hands of Merick. But in order to do so, he would need to build an army. One big enough to withstand those that threatened him and all that he stood for.

Taryn left the big city life looking for a change, a chance to discover herself. Little did she know, her life would unravel in more ways than she could’ve ever imagined. And all because of one man. 

The dark-haired stranger. The one that felt so familiar, yet she had no idea why. They’d never met before...or had they?

Whenever he was near she felt a strong connection, one that could not be denied. That feeling of déjà vu. Like she’s lived that moment before, seen those eyes, heard that voice. Even his touch felt electric. 

A Sacred Bond had formed. 

Turns out, Taryn was the key to it all. She was written in Merick’s destiny, long before their time.

REVIEW

I have loved C.A. Harms and Evan Grace for years, so when I heard they were writing a book together, I knew it would be awesome.  Let me tell you, this book far exceeded my expectations.  Taryn and Merick are absolutely stunning and their story sucked me in right from the beginning.  

Taryn first met Merick when she was a young girl but she doesn't know it at first.  All she knows is that she fells a pull to Merick and she is not sure what to think about it.  Merick knows that Taryn is his future and the future of his family.  Their connection is HOT and I couldn't wait for Merick to make his move.  While I am not going to say much, I will say that the twist and turns of this book will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages.  I can not recommend this book enough!  I can't wait to read more from this series as there are plenty of characters that I hope to get a book for.  

Great job authors!  You have definitely hit it out of the park with this one!




Meet The Authors:
C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She's always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. 

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes...thankfully. 

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better...that quietness changes, fast.

READER GROUP


A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.

During the day Evan works for a large homecare agency and at night she’s superwoman. She’s a wife to Jim and a mom to Ethan and Evan, a cook, a tutor, a friend and a writer. How does she do it? She’ll never tell.
