At first, his words were harsh and his touch cold.
I knew he was a dangerous man and he could destroy me if only he wanted to.

That’s not what he wanted though.
It’s so easy to get lost in the touch of a man who’s powerful and unattainable.
A man who wants for nothing…except me.
Soft touches and stolen glances made my blood heat and my heart beat in a way I never knew it could.

Yes, it’s easy to fall into a haze of lust and desire.
But there’s a reason his reputation is one of a heartless man.
And I should have known better.


Willow Winters once again delivers a breathtakingly beautiful tale that will leave readers speechless and begging for more…

Ever since devouring Merciless a few months ago I have been eagerly anticipating the release of Heartless, the second installment in this phenomenally captivating and one of a kind series. If you loved the first book, then you are going to absolutely inhale the second one.

Just when I thought Carter and Aria’s relationship couldn’t get any more complicated, things take a turn and suddenly I have no freaking clue what to expect! These two have totally torn my heart into a million directions and I don’t know whether I am turning right or left at the moment. They are both tragically broken souls, but together they complete each other. I just…I can’t even begin to describe how much I absolutely adored these two wholeheartedly!

Once again the author leaves readers with an epic cliffhanger that will have them demanding the next story immediately! I cannot freaking wait to see how Carter and Aria continue to develop in the next installment, Breathless, when it releases in September!

She says she needs some help … in the bedroom.

Come again? No, really come again.

Sweet, nerdy, lovable Keaton.

She’s my best friend and has been for years. Sure she likes numbers and math, and thinks doing other people’s taxes is fun. And I like … none of that stuff. She’s obsessed with her cat and reads novels I’ll never understand, and yet we just click. There’s no one I’d rather share breakfast burritos with or binge watch hours Netflix. She’s my person. And so when she takes off her glasses and asks me to help her improve her skills in the bedroom, I barely have to think about it.

Of course I’ll help her. There’s no one better for the job.

I’ve been there for her through everything, why should this be any different?

But what happens when she’s ready to take her new-found confidence and move on?


If you are looking for a phenomenal friends-to-lovers romance with a nerdy heroine and a playboy hero then you need to one-click your copy of Love Machine by Kendall Ryan right this second because this book is just that and so much more!

Since I am a HUGE fan of the friends-to-lovers trope, there was no way that I was going to pass up the opportunity to get my hands on this story! So…the moment this story dropped onto my kindle I dove right into it because the cover and blurb instantly drew me in! In less than a few hours I found myself completely invested in Keaton and Slate story and my goodness there were a ton of sweet and sexy times between these two. Their chemistry was intense and off the charts H-O-T! I freaking loved and adored every second of it!

Not only did I enjoy Keaton and Slate, but those secondary characters added so much to the story and I sure hope that some of them will be getting stories of their own in the near future!

Review – Lie to Me (Rising Star #1) by Lee Piper


Lie to Me by Lee Piper
Series: Rising Star #1
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | iBooks


Cold. Distant. Unattainable.

Reid Tate wasn’t always like this. He once cared for me. Made music with me. Gave his heart and soul to me.

But I ruined it.

The breathtaking boy I used to love is gone. In his place is a man who wants to rip my heart apart and lay my soul bare before thousands. He doesn’t care about the secret that will ruin me. His brand of retribution is destroying my band and ruining our future.

But I promised myself never to let Reid Tate steal my voice again.

Except that’s the problem when dancing with the devil. By the time the music starts it’s already too late.


Lie to Me is the first installment in Lee Piper’s brand-new Rising Starseries and the PERFECT introduction into this sure to be extraordinary series! This also happens to be the first book I’ve read from her, but luckily I have her previous two releases in paperback, so I will certainly be diving into those stories soon enough!

While the cover and blurb is what initially drew me in, it was the author’s brilliant writing that captivated me whole body and soul. Lee Piper certainly has a beautiful way with words and readers won’t be able to resist Shiloh and Reid’s love-hate relationship. Seriously these two filled my heart with so much love and hope that it was nearly impossible to put their story down! Truth be told I stayed up way too late finishing this story because I stupidly started it after midnight, but I am so freaking glad that I did. This story was amazing and I absolutely adored their back-and-forth banter that just added to their off the charts hot and heavy chemistry!

Shiloh Stirling is the lead singer of an up and coming band competing for the title of Rising Star, but she’s got a secret that she is keeping from her bandmates. Now Reid Tate might be the drummer in another band competing against them and he might hate her guts, but he’s willing to help her out. They were once best friends, but when Shiloh pushed him away they grew distant and hatred replaced friendship…or did it?

This story was filled with angst, love, heartache and a ton of sexy times that will have you swooning from beginning to end! Lie to Me was an incredible story and now I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series!

Review – The Rule Breaker by Cat Carmine

The Rule Breaker Ebook Cover.jpg

The Rule Breaker by Cat Carmine
Genres: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 12, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | KoboiBooks


He’s the bad boy … but I’m the one breaking all the rules.

I’ve always been the quintessential good girl. I don’t just follow the rules — I write them. As an advice columnist, I’m always telling people how to not screw up their lives.

So you’d think I’d know better than to bang some random guy in a bar bathroom.

Nope. Apparently not.

Now I’ve got even bigger problems, though. Because it turns out that wasn’t just some random guy. It was Tyler Grant. Rich. Playboy. Devastatingly gorgeous. Oh, and the publisher of my new dating advice book.

All my instincts are telling me to run like hell. It’s what I’d advise anyone else to do.

Nope. I’ve had a taste, and I’m hooked.

Now I’m calling him at ungodly hours and showing up at his house drunk and begging for sex and tacos. In other words, breaking every rule in my own damn book.

Of course, you don’t have to be an advice columnist to know a bad boy and a good girl are never going to work out. Someone’s going to get their heart broken.

And my guess? It isn’t going to be him.


The Rule Breaker was my first book by Cat Carmine and boy am I so glad that I decided to give it a chance because I really liked it! The writing was amazing and the character development was on point! This story kept me engaged until the end and it was easily read in one sitting.

Emma Holloway is a blogger turned professional advice columnist and author. She’s a perfectionist who has a certain way of doing things. She hasn’t strayed from that until she meets bad boy Tyler Grant. He’s a rule breaker and he’s about to bring Emma over to the dark side! She’s about to break a few of her own rules and she doesn’t even care…

Cat Carmine delivers a hilarious, steamy and angsty filled story that will captivate any reader’s heart for a few hours! I recommend picking up this story so that you can fall in love with Emma and Tyler like I did!

Review – Rock King (Nothing But Trouble #1) by Tara Leigh


Rock King by Tara Leigh
Series: Nothing But Trouble #1
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 20, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | KoboiBooks


I’m not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that’s what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money – and women – than I know what to do with. But what you don’t see is the wreckage I’ve caused. The memories and pain I can’t escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn’t work. It hurt me and – worse – it hurt my band. That’s the last thing I want to do, so I’m cleaning up my act… starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice – Delaney is the perfect “girlfriend.” When I’m with her I don’t have to pretend. It’s like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that’s dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn’t actually exist. He’s a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it’s impossible to love a lie, right?


ROCK KING is the first installment in Tara Leigh’s Nothing but Trouble series AND it also happens to be the first book that I’ve been fortunate enough to read from this incredibly talented author.

Rockstar romances are my ultimate weakness, just take a look at some of my favorite reads, and let me say that this book was certainly no exception. My heart still swoons every time I think back to Shane and Delaney’s connection! Although this story might be considered your typical insta-love rockstar romance with a dash of fake relationship thrown into the mix, I don’t freaking care because I loved every second of it!

Shane Hawthorne is the lead singer of the hottest rock band, Nothing But Trouble, and he has it least that’s what society thinks. He believes if people knew the real Shane they wouldn’t be worshiping the ground he walked on, but rather running in the opposite direction. He will do whatever it takes to protect his secrets, even if that means hiring fake girlfriend after fake girlfriend so that no one ever gets too close. That is until the moment he lays eyes on Delaney and then all bets are off. He wants her and he certainly isn’t going to back down until she’s his.

Delaney Fraser certainly didn’t expect to be a twenty-four year old waitress stuck serving the rich and famous of Los Angeles. When she runs into her an old high school friend, more like nemesis, she suddenly finds herself being offered the job of a lifetime…pretend to be Shane Hawthorne’s girlfriend for six months while on tour. What’s six months anyways? If she does this she will have enough money to finish her last semester of college and find her footing, but she has a few secrets of her own…and it might not be as easy as she thought, especially when she starts to develop feelings for him.

Secrets are about to be revealed…To find out what they are make sure to pick up a copy of ROCK KING today!

Review – The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen


The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks


Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost.

Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul. There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.


The moment I heard Sarina Bowen was writing a young adult romance, I knew that I needed to get my hands on it the moment it released because I have absolutely adored all of her previous releases and I had no doubt in my mind that this story was going to be just as amazing! I mean come on the woman can write any genre she sets her mind to and young adult is no exception!

The Accidentals is a brilliantly stunning and phenomenally captivating story that had me feeling emotionally drained at times. My heart wept for the pain Rachel felt after losing her mother and the anxiety she experienced when she finally meets her father after seventeen years of wondering if he ever thought about her besides the two seconds it took him to send a check each month. She’s not sure if she can let him in, but she is about to find out because suddenly he wants to be in her life.

Frederick and Rachel are about to get a crash course in father-daughter 101. They are both about to discover that there are going to be some bumps in the road, but together they will learn more about themselves then either one of them every expected. Readers see their relationship develop throughout the entire story and was the perfect element that was needed to help strengthen their nearly discovered bond. Not only do we get the father-daughter aspect, but both Frederick and Rachel find themselves in relationships with some really awesome significant others! I really enjoyed this aspect and thought it was the perfect combination that was needed in this story!

After devouring Sarina Bowen’s first attempt at young adult, I cannot wait to see what she comes up next in this genre!
