Complicate Me (The Good Ol’ Boys, #1) by M. Robinson

Complicate Me (The Good Ol' Boys, #1)Complicate Me by M. Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I went into this book not really knowing what to expect. The synopsis sounded good so I thought I’d give it a try. Yeah, the first chapter in and I was hooked; three chapters later—by then my lunch break was over—and I was disappointed I’d have to wait until I got home to read.
We meet Alex, a tomboy, who grows up surrounded by four boys who love her more than life. They’re her fierce protectors, and she’s like their little sister…to everyone, except for Lucas. He loves Alex in a different way but he just doesn’t understand it.
Alex is only two years younger than the boys, but she thinks she’s just a grown as they are, until they all realize they’re not. We watch them grow and blossom; the boys surrounding themselves with girls, and Alex on the sidelines watching.
Lucas and Alex always have a special bond—she’s his brown-eyed girl, his half-pint, and he’s her Bo. Until Cole comes to town. Cole is everything Lucas isn’t with her, he flirts, befriends her, and loves her. Alex and Cole form a different kind of relationship, much to Lucas’ dislike.
I felt as though real life hit me in the face. Heartbreak at its best! You don’t know who you want to win Alex’s heart: Cole or Lucas. They take us on a bumpy ride only to realize that love is right there in front of us, and has been, the whole time.
My only gripe is the rotating POVs within chapters, and sometimes the retelling of the same scene that switching views causes. This won’t stop me from reading anything by M. Robinson again, though. I really enjoy her writing. It sucks me right in, and I feel as if I’m right there in the middle of everything.
4 ½ solid stars
Amanda
I don’t know where to start; this book just sucked me in. This is my first time reading an M. Robinson story and it will not be my last.
Alexandra, aka Half Pint, grew up an only child, but that was fine with her. She had four neighbor boys that loved her as fiercely as she loved them. Alex was always just one of them from the day she was born.
Alex formed a strong bond with Lucus, her ‘Bo’ as she called him, than she had with the other boys. The tie that Bo and Half Pint shared was on that the other boys could not even understand, but then, neither of them could, either.
I loved this story! To me this story felt real and true, and not like a fairytale written for a particular audience. I can’t wait for the next one.

The Name of the Game (Something New, #3) by Jennifer Dawson

The Name of the Game (Something New, #3)The Name of the Game by Jennifer Dawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I liked Jennifer Dawson’s writing when I read Crave, and knew I’d read her work again. Reading this book has put her on my favorite author list! Holy smokes, this woman can write some hot stuff!!!

Professor James Donovan, health nut and control freak guy that he is, doesn’t exactly get along with the sexy baker Gracie Roberts. The two of them are forced to spend time together because they have mutual family and friends. The more time they spend together, the more they pick at one another. Every one sees what’s going on except Gracie. Finally, it clicks that she has the hots for him so she suggests they have sex and get it out of their system so they can be cordial to one another. No way on earth does she think it will be good, much less that she’d want more.

Oh, but how wrong was Gracie? The professor was sexy, dominant, and made me melt into a puddle. There were a couple of times that he said and did some things that showed exactly how clueless he was about women. Totally forgivable when you know his background, and truly, I thought him finding a storefront for her was sweet and showed he wanted to be with her.

There were several laugh out loud moments, a bit of awwww how sweet moments, a lot of fan yourself it’s hot moments, and all along I was flapping my hands and smacking the table cause I was excited about what was going on on the page 🙂 Yes, this is book 3 in the series. No, I haven’t read the first ones yet, but I wasn’t lost a bit so don’t think you can’t jump in here and read it. YOU CAN! I’ll be going back to read about Maddie and Mitch and Cecelia and Shane and I’ll be waiting impatiently for Evan’s story.

Creature of Habit (Book One) by Angel Lawson

Creature of Habit (Book One)Creature of Habit by Angel Lawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


TGWB Honest Review3

Angel was sweet and gave me an ARC to read this freaking amazing story, and I had already pre-ordered it the day she mentioned it was coming out.
I loved this story—the first version was one of my all-time favorites—and this re-work takes the cake. I love Grant Palmer, he’s annoying and uptight. Being able to see how his mind thinks and how he feels about Amelia makes you relate to him.
He doesn’t want to be around anyone; his family and especially not this girl, whose very scent literally drives him mad (in both good and bad ways). Grant has secrets he doesn’t want anyone to know. He doesn’t tell Amelia who he really is, nor does he let his family what Amelia means to him.
Amelia has fallen hard for Grant Palmer, and she knows she shouldn’t. He’s her boss and so many lines are being crossed, but she just can’t help herself.
Worlds collide, serial killers are on the loose, and no one is safe. The big question: when Amelia finds out who Grant really is, will she still want him the way he wants her?
I seriously cannot wait for book #2! I’m contemplating bribing Angel so I can get first dibs at reading it. This one was suspenseful, funny, and has great character development. You either love them or hate them.
5+ stars for me

The Lies Between Us (The Devil’s Dust, #4) by M.N. Forgy

The Lies Between Us (The Devil's Dust, #4)The Lies Between Us by M.N. Forgy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this book took me for a wild ride. I have been waiting for a long time to read Cherry and Lip’s story. I must say, M.N. Forgy did not disappoint me.
Cherry is a girl that didn’t have the best upbringing. She lived in a trailer park and was the laugh of the whole school. One night something happened that change her life forever. She will do anything to put her life back together.
Lip is just trying to be his own man and move on from the blood family that he wants nothing else to do with. He wants to be part of the Devil Dust more than anything. Can Lip and Cherry overcome their past to be what each other needs?

This is an amazing series. I can’t wait to read the spin off. Must read MC series.

The Air He Breathes (Elements, #1) by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Air He Breathes (Elements, #1)The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Brittainy Cherry’s words. I fell in love with them with in Loving Mr. Daniels, and I’ve never looked back. In saying that, I read The Air He Breathes in less than a day—and during football season. Football for me is like breathing!
Tristan is mean to everyone. He carries around his own personal demons in his head and doesn’t let anyone close. He’s dead inside with good reason, until Liz starts to breathe life back into him again. She knows there’s more to his story than he’s telling her, but she has her own nightmares to contend with. They lean on one another until twists and cruel turns become their reality, and they can no longer breathe.
The plot coils and springs in ways I never saw coming, and just when I thought I knew what Ms. Cherry was up to, she threw something else at me! Hands down one of the best stories I’ve read to date. I cried, I laughed, and my heart shattered right alongside Liz and Tristan.
You won’t be disappointed…
5+ stars
Amanda
Liz is a broken woman that is trying to put herself back together after a terrible loss. She is not really living, and is just going through life without making any real effort. Tristan is the town asshole who is also just moving though live. Liz knows there is more to him than what everyone says. Will they be able to help each other breathe again and a live life worth living?
Every time I thought I knew what was going on, there would be another change in the plot. I love that I never saw what was coming and I could not predict what happened. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

I was warned about Tristan Cole.

“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

Making Faces by Amy Harmon

Making FacesMaking Faces by Amy Harmon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amanda
Every time I read an Amy Harmon book she blows me away. I found this story when a video popped up on YouTube. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkP_6…] After I watched it, I knew I had to read this book.
Fern is the dorky girl in town with the red hair, glasses and braces that no one looks at. She is in love with Ambrose, the hottest boy in school. He leaves to join the Army but when he comes back, poor Ambrose just is not the same person he was when he left. Fern is bound and determined for him to notice her, and not as the nerd that lives in his hometown.
5 stars
Teresa
I can’t remember the last time I cried reading a book like I did this one. It was phenomenal and blew me away! I tried to read this last year and couldn’t get into it then, so I put it down and figured I’d come back to it.
I’m so glad I did.
Nothing speaks to me more than realizing that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and true beauty is inside.
I loved Fern, because I often felt like her as a kid. We never quite pretty enough for the boys of our dreams. But then maybe when we finally were, the boy didn’t feel that we were good enough for him.
Love is a funny thing—you love because of who someone is on the inside. That’s what truly counts in the end, anyways.
Bailey stole my heart, I loved his view on life. He never took anything for granted, ever. I feel like that’s a lesson we can all learn from him.
Ambrose was awesome; he loved the girl before he even realized he loved the girl. In so many ways that’s what made it so good. He truly loved her, she loved him, and she had for years.
Hands down one of the best books I’ve read this year. I laughed, cried, my heart broke, and it healed again. That is the best kind of story for me.

Suit (The Twin Duo) by Best Selling Author Jettie Woodruff is LIVE!

RELEASE BLITZ
Suit (The Twin Duo)
Best Selling Author Jettie Woodruff
SUIT Release Date: September 21st
SUIT Synopsis:
Identical twins, Gabriella and Isabella, separated at the age of eleven. Reunited after thirteen years. One horrible accident tears them apart again. One wakes up married to a man with a dark side, and two little girls. One is missing.
Once upon a time I was Gabby Delgardo.
And then I wasn’t…
I was Gabriella Pierce.
Stepford wife.
Soccer mom.
Paxton’s trophy.
PTA parent.
Housekeeper.
Chef…
And the slut…
We were the model couple. Picture perfect in the eyes of the beholder. A beauty created by our observers.
A flawless marriage with a lifetime agreement. One made to suit both our needs.
I signed my name on the
dotted line. My marriage certificate.
Lies. Regrets. Secrets from the past.
I was Gabriella Pierce.
And then I wasn’t…

 

“I’m not sure you want me cooking for you, or anyone else. I feel like you kidnapped me and you’re trying to give me this life that’s not really mine. I don’t feel like the type to be controlled.”
Paxton placed a finger over both my lips and shushed me with a quiet, “Shhh, hush now. I assure you with everything in me that you are the type to be controlled. That’s why you suck my dick. That’s why your legs fall apart whenever I come near you. You’re a slut. My slut. I own you,” he said in a dry, sultry tone, fingers gliding down my neck. The dry swallow stuck in my chest when his fingers wrapped gently around
my throat. His grip tightened and his lips met mine. “Shhh, don’t talk, baby girl. Turn around and go take a shower like you were told”
My name is Jettie Woodruff. I am from Ohio. I don’t know what genre I write in. People tell me I have my own genre. I write whatever I feel, because that’s what makes me happy. I don’t want to be in that box where I can only write one genre. I tend to like my bad boy’s, taboo; the touchy subjects that make you want to throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male. Sometimes the female lead as well. My motto is life is short. Very short. If it doesn’t make you happy anymore then why do it? Move on. Some of my favorite things, besides writing are, friends, family, and the beach. Music, although my interest has changed after forty, I like the new stuff. Happy Reading.

00Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre

Hollywood DirtHollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


TGWB Honest Review3

I loved this book—once I reached the ending. There were a few times in the middle that I wanted to leave it behind, but I had to know what happened to Cole and Summer. Did she get what she truly deserved in life, and did he?
Quincy is a small town that doesn’t always welcome outsiders. When Cole Matsen decides he wants to go there to film a movie about the original Coca-Cola 76, things get interesting. The Hollywood boy is taken by surprise for the blonde girl that wants nothing to do with him, but he can’t get her off his mind. Needless to say he needs something to occupy him, since his wife decided she wanted someone else.
I both liked and disliked Summer all at the same time, at first. Once I realized why the girl acted the way she did, I completely understood, and probably would have handled things the same way she had. I grew to respect her because she didn’t let things stand in her way, and she was honest most of the time. I felt, at times, that she got a bad rap for how she managed things, and in small town people talk…which makes for a very healthy grapevine.
This book was completely different to me than anything else I’ve read by Alessandra. In the beginning I liked it, by the middle I wanted to flounce, but I had to know what happened. By the end I was so happy I stuck with it, because I loved it. I was glad she stepped out of her comfort zone, in my opinion, and I was so happy to see Brad DeLuca make an appearance in this book.
