A Perfect Moment
Goodreads Synopsis:

by Becca Lee (Goodreads Author)

“When life threatens perfect, it’s time to step up and kick life in the balls.”

Ella’s perfect moment was taken from her is the worst possible way. Humiliated, heart broken and absolutely determined not to allow her heart be destroyed for a second time, she builds an ice wall around her heart.

Preston has known that he was in love his big sister’s best friend since the age of fifteen. Over ten years on, and an opportunity to be her knight in shining armour is too good to miss. Putting his heart on the line, he’s on a mission to show Ella that the perfect moment is possible.

Ella’s instinct is to run when she realizes her feelings for her bestie’s little brother may just run a little bit deeper than just friends. But if she can’t run, she’ll try every trick in the book to shake off his affection and realign his feelings.

She already had her perfect moment, and there is no chance she’ll let her heart thaw for Preston. No matter how good he looks in the firefighter’s Christmas calendar.

*** Contains steamy-hot moments, romance, friendship and a bulk load of swearing – non explicit sex scenes. ***

My Review:

So I read this book in the middle of July and had every intention of writing a review, and then life got involved and I got sidetracked. But I’m writing it now after reading this novel again. This book right here, is a fantastic book, the characters are on point and pretty much through out the entire thing I was either smiling or laughing or crying with it. The plot (which is a typical love story plot) is really good and she really doesn’t leave anything to the imagination. Now I’m not one for romance or erotica novels, they don’t really do anything for me, but this book was more like a real life kind of book, where you could really picture it and get into it. The writing is fantastic, the descriptions are on point and the characters are flawless. I loved every moment reading this novel and wouldn’t hesitate to pick up another one by this author! You should all give it a try!

The Luckiest by Wendy Owens (Review)

TL AmazonGRSWSynopsis:

Once upon a time Mackenzie Phillips thought she’d found her happily ever after. She had married her high school sweetheart and had started her perfect family. But one tragic night Mac’s perfect life was ripped away from her, leaving her beautiful fairytale existence in ruins.

When everything worth living for is suddenly taken from you, how do you keep going? People told her how lucky she was just to be alive after that night, but she didn’t agree.

Years passed with Mac living in a fog, until another unfortunate turn of events placed her world on its head once again. Now, still carrying the tender wounds of her past, this widow has to face the realities of life again.

Broken and truly alone, she must find work. In walks her new employer, Dean Johnson, a guy who is just broken enough himself, that she thinks he might actually be able to understand her. But Mac soon discovers that that bond with Dean may instead force her to face demons she isn’t yet ready to deal with.

**Contains mature material including language and sex.

Review based on my own thoughts and words:

I received this book from the author for an honest review. This book is breathtakingly beautiful. Never have I felt such loss and such love all at the same time. The characters were spot on, Mackenzie is literally the perfect character, she gives you angst and passion, and devastation, and love all at the exact same time. This book had me in tears quite honestly for quite a while due to all of the emotions that were swirling in it. If there was only one criticism that I would give it would be that there just wasn’t enough of it. I wanted desperately there to be more to this book just so that I could keep reading it. Fantastic and I can’t wait to share this with all of my friends and family.

Excerpt:

I glance in, but the box is dark inside all of the tissue paper. My hands retrieve the first item. “Buckeyes!” I exclaim.

“I can see why she’s your best friend.” Dean leans on one elbow, watching me explore the contents one by one.

I reach in, continuing to pull out items—a black hair scarf with cherries, a pair of earrings from one of my favorite local jewelry designers in Cincinnati, Abbi Glines’s newest steamy romance. My cheeks go hot as Dean sees the cover, lifting his eyebrows.

“Well, I think that’s it,” I say, lifting the box, the sound of something shifting inside catching my attention. “Oh, there’s something else.”
I reach in, and as I do, I can feel Dean’s eyes locked on me. I feel something long and cool slip into my hand. Locking my fingers around it, I let the box fall away. Instantly, I see Dean straighten up, a half-cocked grin on his face.

Much to my horror, I look down to see a pink rubber penis-shaped device in my hand. I freeze, but my cheeks are on fire. All I can think about is the different ways I am going to torture Monica before I kill her.

“I can explain,” I begin. I’ll tell him she’s crazy—like actually certifiable.

He’s still grinning at me as he gives me a slight nod. He closes the gap between us even more.

“You know, I can help with that,” he offers, and I can’t help but wonder if he’s serious, or perhaps maybe I’m wishing.

“You think I’m that easy?” I hit the ball squarely back to him. I consider licking my lips, but worry that may be over the top. I’m looking directly at him, and damn, he’s incredible.

“A guy can hope.” He pauses, playfully lifting an eyebrow. “Can’t he?” I grin. In fact, I can’t do anything but grin. He moves closer, and I glance down, realizing I’m still holding the device. My breath hitches, but he still moves closer. He’s facing me, never moving those gorgeous blue eyes away from me. He slides his arm around my
waist, and as he presses himself against me, I’m sure I can feel an erection. This surprises me, and my hand releases the dildo, which falls to the floor with a thud.

“What’s wrong? Can’t contain your excitement around me?” he whispers, his breath warm on my neck, just below my ear. My mouth is watering, my heartbeat quickens, and my head is now spinning. I pull back, the distance giving me a slight bit of clarity. The idea of this kind of pleasure is tempting. The bulge in his jeans tells me he is interested.

In an attempt to casually conceal the pink rubber shaft, I use the toe of my platform sandals to kick it under a nearby chair. Dean cocks a brow, his face shifts, and he laughs softly.

“What?” I shrug innocently.

“Did you just kick a dick under a chair?” He’s still laughing.

“Watch it, or I might make a habit of it.”

“Ouch,” he hisses, then winces, grabbing himself as if he were imagining the attack.

My eyes dart past his shoulder, where Storm is coming up the stairs. She has on her headphones, staring at the face of her phone. I nod my head at Dean, indicating we’re no longer alone. I shift, moving to walk past him. He grabs my hip, pulling me into his grasp.

“We’ll continue this later,” he promises. He takes my hand and leads me past Storm and out of the bus without a word. I wonder if she can tell what had been transpiring from the look on my face.

As we move around the side of the bus, I feel his hand shift to the small of my back. It’s like he knows all the places to touch me to drive me absolutely insane.

Shadow Flesh and Forget Me Not by Shawn Martin (Review and Purchase links)

Shadowflesh

Shadowflesh

By: Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Goodreads

 

Torn from her home and fighting bouts of suicidal depression, seventeen-year-old Aileen McCormick lands in the small coastal town of Redcliff, North Carolina. Her first day of school promises to be the worst day of her life when a menacing group of boys targets the new girl. A stiff arm shoves Aileen into the arms of Addison Wake. When he catches her, Aileen knows she will never be the same. Addison’s otherworldly charm and drop-dead gorgeous face leave her breathless, but only for a moment. Grim and painful secrets lurk in his dark soul.

Addison Wake isn’t exactly like other boys. Far from it. He’s dead and has been for 300 years, locked in an ethereal prison by a lethal enchantress named Donelle. When she hungers, she blesses Addison’s tortured spirit with moments of freedom, allowing him to roam the mortal world as Shadowflesh. But that dark blessing comes at a price. He must deliver the souls of five unsuspecting humans to Donelle.

Knowing he’s here only for a short amount of time, Addison refuses to let himself fall in love and break Aileen’s already fractured heart. He pushes her into the arms of another, but destiny throws the two shadowy lovers back together. In the darkness of her room, Addison confesses his love and his deadly secret to Aileen.

When four dead bodies pop up in Redcliff, Aileen asks herself is her love for the mysterious boy unconditional? Is the love worth the risk? And will she be the next victim?

My Review:

This is a spooky, Gothic kind of romance that just might never end up as a happy ending. This is the beginning of a series that I think will do very very well! There’s just enough action, and romance, angst and danger to make it interesting. The flow to this book is fantastic also, its one of those… “I have to go to bed! But no you must read another chapter!!!”  Kind of books. The characters were very well developed and were full of personality, the conflict in this story was also very well developed and is an actual conflict, not one of those pretend ones that make you shake your head. And the romance of this book, it’s one of those forbidden romances. It’s quite breathtaking.  Over all I am quite looking forward to continuing this series to see where the story plays out! There is a whole world of potential with this series! So exciting!

ForgetMeNot 453x680Forget Me Not
by Shawn Martin

Synopsis Via Good Reads

Ever since Addison came back to Aileen, her have been brighter and life is sweeter. Until a mysterious man slips a spellbinding cameo around her neck, a cameo that strangles memories. Aileen is left with not the faintest notion who Addison is.

Addison, a three hundred year old fugitive from the netherworld taking the form of Shadowflesh, recognizes the cameo and the curse cast upon his unsuspecting love. But he knows breaking the curse, which may bring back her memories, will cost Aileen her life. To love her means to let her go.

But Aileen can’t take her eyes off the stranger who keeps ignoring her. The stranger who pushes her into the arms of another.

Geoff, who has waited oh, so long for Aileen, tries to sweep her off her feet at the Christmas masquerade ball. But a serendipitous moment lands Aileen back together with Addison. One passionate kiss later, she knows beyond a shadow of doubt that she loves Addison, the icy stranger with smoky blue eyes.

Remembering comes at too high a price though. Aileen must run for her life with the curse only a breath away

 

My Review

 

I was given this book in exchange for an Honest review by the Author Shawn Martin and Bostick Communications.

First off I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this book. This is book 2 in the Shadowflesh series, and deals with the same characters only a different twist of events. What would you do if you forgot one thing?? Something so important to you that you would be willing to risk your life for it? I honestly don’t know what I would do to tell you the truth.  Now that being said, this book is fantastic! It mirrors the first novel to the extent of where the characters are the same spunky amazing characters that have so much personality that they are reeking of it. And there is conflict, oh is there a hell of a conflict. There is romance (it is pg romance though) and the descriptions in this book are amazing. The flow was really nice and smooth and I didn’t find any real hiccups in it at all. The only thing I’m wondering is why more people haven’t read this. It was released March 31 of this year and there are NO reviews on Goodreads for it yet!! Have no fear though, I will be more then happy to remedy that for him!

Once again, it was an absolute pleasure reading this book for this review!

500 Days by Jessica Miller (Review and Purchase links)

500Days

Book Description

April 14, 2014
Casper Covington had his music, women, and pretty much anything he wanted at his disposal. But the one thing that plagued his thoughts constantly was the one thing he couldn’t have. The girl he met six months ago. A drunken one night stand that he couldn’t get out of his head. The only thing he remembered from that night was her green eyes and the ivy tattoo that stretched the length of her body. In his attempts to put an end to the tortuous dreams of the mysterious girl, Casper’s attention is caught by the new bartender. There’s just something so familiar about her that his need to get to know her becomes more troublesome than he expected. Alexis Radcliff was raised by her four brothers making her as tough as nails on the outside but on the inside she wanted what every girl did – someone to love her, faults and all. She would be damned if she admitted that out loud and made a point to show she could use men just as easily as they used women. But when a sexy musician starts to show interest in Alex she has a hard time convincing herself to stay away. Alex knows everyone has secrets but hers are ones she doesn’t want to share. But when she can no longer fight her feelings, her dark past slowly starts to unravel.
Can true love conquer all? Or are past ghosts a haunting premonition of what lies ahead?

 

I was given an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. The opinions of this book are my own and were not bought by the author nor do they reflect the author in anyway.

Lets Just take a minute and appreciate the work the author put into making this cover for her book. That’s right she made this cover. To me that is just awesome, the fact that not only did she create this amazing book that is just live with feeling and electricity, but she also published it and created the cover herself.  On to the actual review.

I read this book around my birthday which is the end of April. Now there was still snow out here so it was nice to be cuddled up to a book with a cup of tea by the window and just get lost. This novel isn’t your typical love story. It’s full of angst and betrayal, hurt, devastation and attitude. Sure there are the parts where its all mushy and smutty and what not, but what romance novel doesn’t have those.

What I liked about this book was the STORY. The plot and the characters essentially is what kept me captivated, that and the fact that Jessica Miller just has this way with words that it just hypnotizes me and keeps me entrap in reading it until the very end. I actually had to break away from it twice. Just so that I could let the information sink in as towards what I was reading, and when it was over, I felt emotionally drained.  And there was no cliffhanger at the end, which made me soooo happy. I hate cliffhangers the ones that just drop off the face of the earth and expect you to be happy about it. Yah no . Usually when that happens I refuse to pick up the second book, because really why would you do that to me??!?!?!!

Characters, where to start on those? Our 2 main characters are Casper and Alexis or Alex. Now I’m not going to sit here and explain who they are in great detail because I find that takes away the thrill of getting to know them inside of the book, what I will say is that they are expertly written. They are well though out and they mesh really really well. They were in the very sense made for each other. If they were real people, I have no doubt in my mind that they would be together.

Over all I gave this book 5 stars out of 5!!

Do Anything
By Wendy Owens
Blurb:
A broken heart is only the beginning for her.
Bookworm Annabelle Hart thinks she’s found the love of her life. But when her fiancé’s philandering ways shatter their happy future, she decides she’s through playing the victim. Now, rather than read about life, she wants to live it—starting with a sabbatical from her editing job in Chicago to travel the world. But the past refuses to let her go so easily.
He thinks he has his life figured out.
After watching the woman he thought he loved walk away from him, Holden Blackburn is still picking up the pieces. Content with his life as the owner of an English Inn, just outside the sleepy town of Alton, he’s living his new and peaceful normal. That is, at least, until Annabelle stumbles into his life, and he’s overwhelmed by a desire to learn all he can about her. Now if only he can get her to stay in one place long enough.
Will they risk their hearts on a new chance at love?
When her past returns in a way she can’t ignore, Anna panics, running from any possible future with Holden. She’s determined to keep her life from falling apart again, but she soon discovers the only place she feels safe is in Holden’s arms.
But some things even he can’t protect her from.

My Thoughts/Review:I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. Now the reason behind that is because well, lets just face it right head on. It was too damn short. There is so much more to this story begging to be told. The characters are great, they are well developed and they have that emotional attachment that I for one look for.  The area where this book is based, again its flawless. Wendy has a way with descriptions that just puts everyone else to shame. The plot of this book is again also really really good. I just wish there was MORE. I crave MORE of this story. If you would have given me 100 more pages you would have gotten 5 stars out of me. Now what blew me away with all of this though, is that this isn’t a paranormal book, its a romance novel (not what I usually read). But I threw my caution into the wind and just started reading. 4 hours later and another book out of my belt, I felt strangely unsatisfied. I just want more.
