Lips Close To Mine by Robin Bielman–Review and New Release

LipsCloseToMine-500[10280]

Lips Close To Mine is the second book in Robin Bielman’s ‘Wherever You Go’ series. This can be considered a standalone with Mateo and Teague making an appearance from Talk British To Me (reading this first isn’t necessary to this story.) LCTM revolves around Levi and Harper. Robin writes an exquisitely beautiful story full of angst, romance, humor and, of course, sexiness. The banter between the them is hilarious!

Levi is another book boyfriend for 2017. He is a sweet soul with manners, wears his heart truly on his sleeve, despite being afraid of being hurt again.

Harper is a well-loved former swimmer who does things to protect herself. She is close to her family and friends, but is leery of a relationship. She is a feisty person who is good at concealing her emotions.

“Levi Pierce is impossible to forget. He’s also maddening, infuriating, irritating and the reason my body hums even when he’s not near.”

Both Levi and Harper have experienced severe emotional trauma with lingering heartbreak. They both handle these issues in different ways. Harper is very closed off to anything emotional regarding love. She will not allow herself to get close to anyone of the male persuasion. Levi, on the other hand, has big trust issues, however, he has always felt something for Harper, but just doesn’t understand why she pushes him away. Can these two get it together and make it work? Will Levi’s past stay in his past? Will Harper learn how to let go and love again?

“Your heart is your friend, not your enemy”.

The Killing of Miguel by Christopher McAfee–New Release

Title: The Killing of Miguel
Author: Christopher McAfee
Genre: Sci-Fi/Thriller
Release Date: November 19, 2017

 

“When someone loses a family member, or is faced with tragedy that is beyond comprehension, the mind and body take refuge in a safe place. Sometimes, it takes the person on a journey that many people cannot conceive. It is my opinion that Steven will never be able to return to his former self.”


That quote was from one of my doctors that I saw while confined.

While it is true that the death of my father was very traumatic, what followed was truly real.

It was a battle of wills with the epitome of Evil.


Christopher resides in Fremont,Ohio,USA. A self confessed music nerd, he utilized real life experiences with a vivid imagination to write a fictional memoir, Almost Anonymous. A tale of a young musician’s battle to discover the real person inside. After positive reviews he was urged to write in a genre that was more popular. He chose Horror, and “The Killing of Miguel” was written. A story of a young man seeking revenge against an Agent of the Devil (Miguel) for stealing his father’s soul.

 

In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife,Vicki and their son’s Kevin,Joshua, Jacob, grandson Maxwell Christopher McAfee and their assortment of family dogs, Buddy,Bailey,Nash and Mia.

One Shot by B.J. Harvey–Review

ebook cover_One Shot

Ms. Harvey knows how to start a story. Dang, the prologue just sucks you in and makes you *gasp*. It is a very strong beginning to a great story. Since it was so intriguing, it was a very quick read that was easy to get immersed in and loose track of time.

One Shot is full of angst, tons of drama, happy romantic times as well as plenty of heartbreaking moments. Millen and Kenzie were enthralled with each other from the get go. Their chemistry is off the charts electric and the banter between them incredibly funny at times. This was one couple that just clicked from the get-go.

Millen is so incredibly sweet, but keeps personal and professional life close to his chest. Expectations were placed on him that he felt he had to obliged to, because he was the only son. He doesn’t agree with what’s expected of him, but doesn’t know what to do. One thing he never expected was Kenzie. She is his one and only.

Kenzie is a thirty-two year old manager at a local bar. After a brief stint as a cop in San Francisco she realizes her heart isn’t in it and decides to return home. She is happy and content with her life when Millen enters her bar. It was an immediate magnetic attraction. Due to some familial issues, she has a hard time trusting guys and has some personal rules she lives by. After spending an astounding weekend with Millen, she gets ghosts by him. This causes some internal strife. Does she stay and fight for him? Does she just give up and move on? Does she even trust her feelings? All this combined to one incredibly angsty book. Wow, what an ending.

There are some secondary characters that round out this immensely enjoyable cast. One of them happens to be Kenzie’s best friend, Gaby. The relationship between these two is off the charts hilarious. I love Gary’s spirit and was a welcome addition.

Overall, I give this book 5 stars. For this who may be leery to read this book, there is no cheating between the main characters. Truly, BJ Harvey has outdone herself with One Shot, proving that sometimes all you need is One Shot at love!

‘And I’m going to spend a lifetime loving you. Tonight, and all the tomorrows.’

Becoming Daddy by R.R. Banks–Review

51fugTLikzL

Becoming Daddy by R.R. Banks is his best book yet. It is a quick, sweet and heartwarming read that is full of laughable moments.

Rue and Richard are the heroine and hero of this book. Richard is a prominent businessman who is looking to become a father. He has a girlfriend/significant other who is truly a wretched woman. She is an icy, elitist who appears to be above becoming a mother and looking for a surrogate. This, however, does not stop Richard from finding one. It is shown through the writing that Richard has true devotion to this process of having a baby.

Rue is an adorable character. She is strong, loyal, kind, caring and lovable. Rue has become a city girl, but is really a country girl at heart. She is a no nonsense girl with a level head who understands the value of family. By accident she ends up at the contract baby interviews. How she got there though is an incredibly funny story. She ends up going through this process, not only because she needs the money, but she enjoys the idea of helping a childless couple bring life to their home. This does not make her greedy, she is trying to save her Grammyma’s house, which happens to be the house she grew up in. There is a tradition that started with Rue’s mom, which she carries on with her surrogate baby. It is a tear jerker, heartwarmingly tender and emotional moment. Absolute perfection and so sweet!

Becoming Daddy is wonderful read that focuses around the concept of love, family and home. Rue and Richard are a wonderful dichotomy as a couple (She’s a country girl, he’s an upper crust city boy). This works well together in the standpoint that no matter where you come from there truly is nothing like family and home. Richard has a wonderful transformation from upper crust society to Whiskey Hollow everyday man. As I mentioned before, this is by far R.R. Banks best book yet!

Crowned By Hate by Amo Jones–Review

img_3347Crowned by Hate by Amo Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok, so I don’t know where to start right now. I just finished reading this about 30 minutes ago and I’m shook. I literally don’t know how I feel, because I have SO MANY thoughts and feelings whirring around in my head, I don’t know where to start.

I’m in agony, confused and in SO MUCH DANG SHOCK! I’m peeved that it ended where it did, because I so need book 2 to figure out…WTH just happened? Who did what? Where did this epic shock and awe ending come from? What’s real? What isn’t? How could they? When did this take place? Where can it possibly go from here? I’m just questioning everything right now.

Now I should admit, when I first started, I thought, ‘Wow, this is a little bit tame for Amo? Why does it feel like it’s moving a little fast?’ Well, girls (& guys) let me tell you. Once you get to the ending it all makes sense in a crazy non-sensical way. The ending is just FLIPPING phenomenal! It has thrown me onto a total mindf*ck. I, seriously, am questioning everything I just read and feel the need to re-read CBH just to see if I can get something out of it that I might have missed.

Bryant and Isa were a joy to read, despite their mutual hate for each other. Bryant is an alpha male of epic proportions. He’s twenty-seven years old and truly feels like his sh*t don’t stink. He’s domineering, a flat-out a**hole and yet he’s a family man in his own grumpy way. Isa is the rebellious child of the POTUS. She’s twenty, loudly voices her opinion, doesn’t take crap from anyone and is a Sex addict. Yet, when these two get together it’s the biggest power struggle ever. This, of course, makes for some incredibly hot, sexy and steamy scenes.

One thing I have learned after reading CBH, is that don’t go in with any preconceived notions. If you do, you will only end up hurt, lost, confused, wrecked and destroyed. I read the blurb and I thought I had a semi-storyline in place. WRONG ANSWER! Amo is the ‘queen’ of unpredictability and mind f*ckery so be prepared for one heck of a good book!

The only thing that was missing, is the link for book 2, because this girls gotta find out what’s going to happen next in that beautifully twisted mind of Amo’s. In all seriousness, read this book as soon as you can. However, make sure you have a bottle of wine, some beer or even hard liquor, cuz girl you’re going to need it!
