Finding Willow By Dawn Robertson

Finding Willow ★★★★★

We briefly met Starburst Bloom aka Star in the first book. We learn that she has a child with her best friends brother that was taken away from her when she was only 16. Now 11 yrs later she set out on a journey to find her daughter. But that also means she has to return the the one place she hates most and face her demons. But what frightens her most is the thought that her daughter might not even want to know her.

This one brought me to tears.

  I have to admit in the first book nothing about star was interesting to me. I thought she was a horrible friend just hanging on simply cuz she had no one else. But after reading her story I can honestly say I was wrong. I sympathized with Star on her struggle as a child, an I praised her when she finally decided to make her life her own.
True to form the smut in this book had me hot an bothered. Or perhaps that was the hot biker.. you'd have to read to find out!

It's official... Dawn Robertson is officially added to my favorite author list.

Hers by Dawn Robertson

Hers ★★★★★

On the surface Seven James is a fighter a leader An a dominant. In both the boardroom an the bedroom. After breaking up with her ex Daniel part cheating on her and breaking her heart, she sent out for revenge. Celebrating the start of her success she heads to sinners and swingers where she meets Levi Parker. But little does she know he would be the one man who would solely break down her walls and change her life forever.

Holy mother of god.. This book is exactly what the the doctor ordered! Seven was definitely a breath of fresh air. Countless books we read about the damsel in distress in search of her prince charming. Well not in this book! Like all woman.. strong willed or the weak.. she has her insecurities the does get the best of her at times. But that was when Levi was at his best! He was so sweet and charming and a submissive like youve never read about before. The sex scenes was hot like fire except instead of tryna put it out i was begging for more.

There was one small in discrepancy that was probably just over looked.. Im sure most people didnt notice it either and it did not take away from the story either. So you get a pass on that one Ms. Robertson.

Now im headed back to sinners and swingers in search for my own Levi Parker. Hell after reading this book id be willing to submit to Seven James.

Touching Scars By Stacy Borel

Touching scars ★★★☆

Katherin peirce was the nerdy girl in high school everyone loved to pick on. That is til the  verbal abuse went over board an turned Physical abuse. Vowing shed never let anything like that happen again, she packed up an moved to Texas where shes thought shed never be found. And so it was til her 21st birthday. With her uncle in walked one guy shed never in a million years thought shed ever see again. Was he sent to finish the job??

Timber fresh out of the army and suffering from ptsd simply needed a fresh start. He moved far away from home hoping to escape his demons. He was doing fine til his boss invited him to his bar a few blocks down to celebrate his nieces birthday. But he couldnt believe his eyes when he saw his bosses niece turned out to be the he crushed on in H.S. But she acted like she didnt know him.. why?? He didnt know but he surely intended to find out.

I loved that Kat had spunk. Dispite what she went through back in H.S she unlike alot of characters ive read about never let that define who she was. Back in the days she was the girl everyone made fun off now she was the woman at the bar every guys in town wanted a piece of.
We always read about the bully that turned into a misunderstood prince. But not in this book. But Timber was the bully's friend who just sat back and watched it all happen til one day he decided he wasnt gonna just watch it any more. He was sexy and all types of alpha male. When he spit his orders it made me want to comply lol. 

Unfortunately, this book was just ok for me. The story line was good but very predictable. I give Touching scars 3 1/2 stars

Goodbye Girl by Scarlett Metal

Goodbye Girl ★★★☆

Rachel met Clint in a diner one night while she was on the road trying to escape her past. From the moment they lay their eyes on each other, sparks fly. He offers her a job on his ranch and even though she's a city girl, she accepts.

It's not long before they give into their attraction and settle into life together on the ranch. They find happiness in each other's arms and Clint quickly wonders if Rachel is the girl that can give him his happily ever after.

Rachel's past eventually comes back to haunt her, and threatens her happiness with Clint. Can they work through their demons of the past and find their happily ever after? Or will Rachel leave Clint just like she fled her life before?

This was your typical damsel in distress running from the past right into the arms of Prince charming. Who of course had his own issues. I was never a big fan of Cowboys and ranches an horses but Clint was all kinds of hot, and he made the sex scene that much hotter! Think I just found my first cowboy book boyfriend lol!!

The story line was good but it was very predictable. Which is why i could only give goodbye Girl 3 1/2 stars.

The Red head Plays Her Hand

 The Redhead  Plays Her Hand ★★★★★

Grace has landed the lead in a new TV series—but when the director asks her to lose fifteen pounds, she goes public with her weight struggles and suddenly develops a huge fan club who support her right to have curves. But between that and the public’s continuing fascination with her “are they or aren’t they” relationship with Jack, Grace begins to wonder if anyone’s really interested in her because of her upcoming TV series, or if it’s all speculation about the size of her ass and her bedroom partner.

Meanwhile, Jack is voted the Sexiest Man Alive and becomes a little too enamored with the party-hard lifestyle. Grace vows to give him the space he needs to find himself, but then he begins to spiral down from lovable Brit to Hollywood brat. People are talking, but are Jack and Grace? Her career is on the rise, and his continues into the stratosphere, but will she be able to catch him if he falls? Will they ever be able to just be a couple who can hold hands when they walk down the street?

compared to the first two books this one had my emotions all over the place. I was ecstatic on how well things was going with Graces and jacks careers, i was in aww with how well their relationship going also, although they had to keep it a secret. But the media.. blogs.. and the press pissed me off. They were down right rude at times. Jacks behavior through out most of this book pissed me off.. i often wished i could reach in the book to beat some sense into him. Everyone tried talking to him but he just wouldnt listen. But like my mom always said "who dont learn must feel" And that he did.

I loved the way this book ended. Although I'm not entirely convinced there isn't more to the story.

This series definitely shed a light on what some of the celebrities we all know and love goes through. Me personally i tend to stay away from blogs gossip sites & celebrity magazines. Although i sadly have to admit TMZ is usually my vice. I always belived "if TMZ mentioned it, it must be true" boy was i wrong!

The price of being a celebrity.... WOW!! I always new they had It rough but I had no Idea just how rough. And to think this story isnt even real.

Consequences By Aleatha Roming

Consequences ★★★★

Working as a bartender Claire meets Tony who insist on her having a drink with him although she refused him the first time she eventually gives in. During there drinks Tony offers her a 'what if' contract which she signs just for the sake of it. But little does she know Tony fully intended on holding her to said contract.

sigh.. where do I begin..
first of all let me just say This was my second attempt at this book. The first time. I read it I gave up about 20% into the book but was told I needed to give it another chance so I did..
the beginning of the story was really intense and it tugged at my emotions.. in other words.. I cried alot!! and after claires 'accident' things between Anthony drastically changed. . but after that the story became boring and I was ready to give up on it.. again... I didnt want tony to resort to his old ways but I was dying for something... anything to happen..when claire finally grew some balls things for her seemed take a turn for the worst and tony finally showed his true colors.. ones I saw from the beginning...

I for one hated claire. I hated how she gave up so easily of course I know she did it to survive.. but when she gave in she also let her guard. She seemed a bit to desprate for love for me. Even when everything came crashing down she still could see what was right in front of her. Despite my lack of love for Claire I full intend on reading Truth but I have to mentally pepare myself b4 I do.

Quintessentially Q by Pepper winters

Quintessentially Q ★★ ★ ★ ★

Quintessentially Q picks up exactly where Tears of tests left off.  Except this time we get a glimpse of what's going through Q's head as this book is not just from Tess pov but from both.
We basically learn some of what happened in Q's  past that made him the 'monster' he thinks he is. And together Tess and Q test just how dark their desires are. An tho things aren't perfect they're better than either of them would expect.
That is until a threat from Q's past come back to hurt him in the most unthinkable way. And Q is forced to fight with everything he's got to save an protect what's his.

Oh My God I thought tears of tess was intense but this one had me in tears throughout most of this book. The second installment of the monsters in the dark series is dark, raw and, emotionally captivating.  No Matter how much I wanted to I couldn't pull myself away from this book and it literally gave me nightmares! But for someone like me that craves the darkness that was freaking fantastic!
There's not much I can say with out giving away the whole story so all I can say is if you loved Tears of Tess as much as I did you'd absolutely love this one!!

Although there is no cliffhanger in this one... thank god... Q and Tess' story is not yet complete... look for Twisted together early 2014!!

Tears of Tess By Pepper Winters

Tears Of Tess ★★★★★

Tess Snow lived a perfect life with her perfect boyfriend and everything was absolutely perfect! that is until her perfect boyfriend Brax, took her on a surprise trip to mexico. Where she was kiddnapped and her whole life turned up side down!! although she beaten branded an sold she refused to bow down to any one. The day she met her new master, Quincy, she made a promise to her self that she wouldnt let him break her. She would fight him til the day she managed to escape an find her way home. What she doesnt know is that not everthing is as it seems.

This book was so not what I expected. When I read the synopsis I thought this was another captive falling for her captor. But it was so much more than that. This book was dark and almost painful to read but at the same time.. it was beautiful an romantic an I absolutely fell in love with Q!  And once his story was revealed I was ready to trade places with Tess!
I loved the fight Teas had in her... I've read many stories of women sold beaten and raped that eventually give up an give in an eventually have a serious case of Stockholm syndrome. While I know it happens I'm so glad that wasn't the case here!

I felt bad about that happened to Brax when tess was kidnapped but to be completely honest Brax got on my last nerve an I couldn't understand why she was with him for so long. But that's just my personal opinion.

I received an ARC for book 2 Quintessentially Q for a review but knew I had to read this one first and God I'm so glad I did. If dark romance is your cup of tea.. Because we all know it not for everyone.. this is definitely the book for you!!

Now I'm off to read Quintessentially Q... review coming soon

Lovely Vicious By Sara Wolf

Lovely Vicious ★★★★

Isis Blake is your typical teenager in a new school. Or so you'd think just looking at her. At a party she meets Kayla and they immediately hit it off. That is until Jack Hunter A.K.A the ice prince walks in and embarrasses her new best friend in front of everyone. It's then Isis declares war on him for simply being a bully!
Jack Hunter talks to no one, has no friends, trust no. Therefore he's mean to everyone. An everyone lets him get away with it because he's the hottest guy in school. That is until he meets Isis. The thought of her infuriates him. So when she declares war on him he fights back just as hard.. just as dirty.. but eventually lines get crossed and then it's hard to tell how far it to far til it's to late.

When I first started reading this book I just knew I wasnt going to like it. Over the past couple of months i have read several stories about someone running from their past or just simply attempting to start over. And while they were good, i have no interest in reading anymore.. or so i thought.

Isis Blake proves that your past.. no matter how cruel it might have been.. should never define who you are. She the friend all teenagers need in their lives. She's a strong willed survivor that will always have your back no matter what!

Jack was the biggest jerk known to man and I absolutely hated him.. that is until Ms Wolf gave us a glimpse of his thoughts just as things started to get intense! Which I didn't see coming, but very clever of her because Then I didn't hate him so much. Like most teenagers he was guarded and miss understood.. not that he gave anyone a chance lol. But once things turned around you saw him from a whole different perspective. And I couldn't help but love him.

There was many times I thought I knew what was going to happen but Sara Wolf proved me wrong once again!! I literally couldn't put this book down. Highly recommended for anyone looking for something other than your average romance novel.

There is a major cliffhanger you do see coming as you get closer to the end, that will break your heart and also have you screaming OH MY GOD for days. But thankfully we don't have to wait much longer for book 2 in this series Savage delight is due out next month and I can't wait!!

One night with him

One Night With Him ★★★☆

We meet Reagan Larson at her best friend Addison's bridal shower at the hottest night club in town. She heads down to the bar to get another round of drinks for her party where she meets a guy she describes as a beautiful man plucked straight out of a GQ magazine.
  They engage in conversation and eventually 'hook up' later that night in which she chalked up to a one night stand.
A week later Reagan is running late for dress rehearsal. She runs into the church where they've already started without her and as shes half way down the aisle she lock eyes with Colton Conrad a.k.a the groom's best man a.k.a GQ!!
Her very first one night stand has come back to haunt her.

One of the main things I really like about this book was Reagan wasn't a damsel in distress. And Cole didn't come into her life to sweep her off her feet. Cole also wasn't your average billionaire aplha prick we all love to read about. Both characters was strong willed with successful jobs of there own. And yet they still managed to complete each other.
  However, I was not at all impressed with the storyline. Although it was good it, was way to predictable for me. I think this book would've been so much better had there been a draw dropping cliffhanger...  even tho I despise cliffhanger. One Night With Him needed more... unfortunately I could only give this book 3.5 stars

Back to Reality by Danielle Allen

Back to reality ★★★★

WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT READ Back to Life, I DO NOT want to give anything away!!

So at the end of Back to Life Ty had gotten into an accident, how much can this poor woman take? Luckily she finds her way to counseling, THANK GOODNESS!! Boy does she need it! It’s tough when you carry that much guilt around with you and of course this most recent accident is her fault as well, according to her. On top of all that she is still in love with both men, but wait let’s make things more complicated and introduce a new one Ben! I really like Ben personally, but how will he fit into her crazy life? Will Emanuel break the engagement with Ashlyn to prove that he loves only her? Will she and Ty be able to work through their problems? What is a woman to do? You have to read the book and find out!

This book is a wild roller-coaster ride of apprehension, I recommend getting a good seat belt before you start reading, for as they say hold on it’s a bumpy ride! There is a lot of steamy sex, heart to heart talks, soul searching and bombs being dropped. Well worth the read. I give this book 4 stars!
