Falling for Dr. Knight–Review

Falling for Dr. Knight is so apropos as a title, because that is what you will do by the end of the book. Preston Knight is your Knight in shining armor. Preston fits in well with some other famous doctors. Do you remember Dr. Dreamy or Dr. McSteamy? Well now we have Dr. Charming/Dr. Sexy/Dr. Suave (take your pick). A man that is so loving, suave, mesmerizing, grounded and loves kids, which is a good thing because he is a pediatric doctor. So, picture this, a handsome and amazing guy holding a newborn to his chest. Do you not hear your ovaries yelling and begging, “Please! Me next! Pick Me, Pick Me”! Yep, that is the Dr. Knight effect.

When Preston and Cress first met there was an instant spark and a bubbling of chemistry. This spark continued to grow and ultimately formed a strong cohesive bond. Not only between Cress and Preston, but also including Lexi. This group felt and acted like a true family unit.

Cress is a single mother to Alexis. She is blessed to have help from her mother, Momma Cress, and her best friend, Ave. Recently she has started to get help from Dr. Charming which shocks her that he is so willing to help.

Preston and Cress are the couple that you want to mark as #CoupleGoals. They are so incredibly cute together and Preston has such a unique and sweet way to say goodnight/goodbye. He is just adorable with Lexi, but truthfully, he is amazing with all the ‘Cress’ women. Charming, hot, slightly dorky, hot, mesmerizing, and hot!! Wait, did I tell you how hot he was??😉😉

Now Cress’ life has not always been sunshine and roses. She has had a lot darkness, doom, and gloom. Thoughts of not having any better than what she had after finding out she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she has some baggage from her past in the form of her baby daddy, Creed. All I am going to say is that Creed is something else.

I adored this book. I had been reading a slew of dark romances and Falling for Dr. Knight was a nice palette cleanser. I highly recommend reading Dr. Knight!!

My Review

Blurb
Arianna Capizola is her father’s daughter.
Humble. Hardworking. Honest.
She’d rather spend her days helping at the local shelter
than brushing shoulders with her vain and entitled classmates.
Niccolò Marchetti is his father’s son.
Dark. Dangerous. Deceitful.
He’d rather spend his days getting bloody in the ring than
attending class and keeping up pretences.
When their paths cross at Montague University neither of
them are willing to drop the walls they’ve spent so long building. But he can’t
resist the girl with stars in her eyes, and she can’t forget the guy who saved
her that night.
There’s only one catch.
Nicco isn’t Arianne’s knight-in-shining armor, he’s the son
of her father’s greatest enemy.
He is the enemy.
And their families are at war.
**Prince of Hearts is the first book in Nicco and Ari’s
duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book
is recommended for readers 18+

Excerpt
“It’s a
beautiful night,” I said from the shadows. 
“Nicco?”
She glanced around, searching for me. When her eyes landed on me standing by
the corner of the building, she stood up. “What do you want?”
“Ahh,
Bambolina.” I let out a weary sigh. “That is a loaded question.”
“Humor me.”
Lina took a step closer. The moonlight danced off the soft features of her
face.
Jesus, she
was so fucking beautiful.
“I want to
kiss you.” I inched toward her, unable to resist the magnetic pull I felt
whenever I was around her. “I want to finish what we started earlier. I want to
feel you beneath me, hear you cry my name.”
I want
to make you mine.
“You
couldn’t get away from me fast enough earlier.” Her confused gaze cut me like a
thousand tiny blades over my skin. 
“It’s not
what you think,” I said, moving closer still. Lina mirrored my movements until
we were standing in front of each other.
Until she
was close enough to touch.
“What’s
happening to us, Nicco?” she whispered. “Why do I feel like this?”
“What do
you feel like?” I brushed the hair off her neck. She had a thick hoodie pulled
over her body, but I was still able to stroke the skin beneath her ear. Lina’s
eyes drifted closed as she inhaled a shaky breath. 
“I look for
you when you’re not there. I feel you when you’re close. I can’t get you out of
my head.” Her eyes opened again, fixing on mine. She smiled and it was like a bolt
of lightning to my heart.
This girl.
This
innocent sweet girl was ruining me.

Bona Fide (Illusive duet, book 2) by Hazel Grace–Review

BFBanner

I have read all of Hazel Grace’s books, starting with Arranged (Array Series 1) and have seen the progression of her writing increase with each book. This writing is completely at its best in the Illusive duet.

Catfish, book 1, knocked me off my seat onto my ‘bass’😉. I was sucked in from the word Prologue. Wade has been my man since that first paragraph (sorry Dee. You get him first, but I also lay claim to him😉😂). Catfish was one heck of a ride, that I was not ready for, but COMPLETELY loved!

So, Bona Fide comes out and I thought, ‘what is the cliffhanger queen going to do to us now’? Simple answer, a lot!! If you were looking for an easy wrap up with a cute little bow, go someplace else. You will not find that here. Now, it does not mean that there may/may not be a HEA involved, that is for you to find out. It just means in either scenario, HEA or no HEA, you will be taken on a ride.

Bona Fide continues with the ever-tumultuous Reagan and Wade. Reagan is spicy, hot, not a pushover, can take care of herself and confident. She is full of witty comebacks, which had me snickering throughout the book. This does not mean that there was not angst and drama going on. At times, I felt like I needed to cut through it with a knife.
Wade has a whole other journey going on, his political journey and how to not become just another politician. When you think of the word politician, what are some things you think of? Confident, charming, relatable, goal-oriented, uncomplicated, and fearless come to mind? What about negative characteristics or people’s perception of them? Corrupt, dishonest, unethical, greedy, selfish, and bad judgment, to name a few! I will not give away what Wade does or who he is, but I will say, you really begin to feel the amount of pressure that is on his shoulders and how he tries to maintain the man beneath the political shroud. There are many things going on with Wade, but overall, you can feel how incredible of a MC he is. It truly is hard not to fall in love with him.

Hazel Grace is blossoming into an incredible author. Catfish/Bona Fide is evidence of that. There are massive amounts of angst, boat loads of drama, sprinkled with some comedic laughs and bucket loads full of hot, sexy, and romantic times. I HIGHLY recommend this series!!

IOU by Kristy Marie–Review

IMG_7901

I fell hard for Kristy Marie, her writing and the characters in her Commandeer in Briefs series. I truly did not think I could love main characters more than Theo/Anniston, or the bromance of Theo/Gage. She proved me wrong. I am in serious love with Maverick and Ainsley and their band of side characters.

Ainsley is the girl that you want to be friends with. I think we all could find some aspect of her character that would resonate within ourselves. She is fun, quirky, a ‘button pusher’ unintentionally, plucky and strong willed. Despite all these positive characteristics, she is a hot mess. This will lead to many ‘adventures’ with Ainsley and you will be laughing so hard at her antics your ribs will hurt in the morning.

Maverick. It is hard to say his name without wanting to sigh. Maverick is moody, broody, his name alone makes people quiver (and not in a good way sometimes😏). Despite his rough, stony and cold-hearted outward appearance, he is something else entirely underneath and it only takes one tenacious girl to start poking holes in his façade.

Now, take their individual characteristics and combine them. What do you have? Maverick and Ainsley’s relationship, which will never be boring, always hilarious and my new favorite couple of Kristy Marie’s. IOU is written so entirely well that it will have you feeling the feels. Personally, I cannot help but not looking at the cover and breaking out in a smile. It is fun, refreshing, hilarious, powerful and enduring. I loved every little thing about IOU and am so happy to see Kristy Marie spread her wings and try something new. Well done, Kristy, well done!!

PS…One side character I must mention is Lawrence!! He is downright lovable!!

Interpreter (Commandeer in Briefs series #4) by Kristy Marie

Interpreter is part of Kristy’s, Commandeer in Briefs series, about Timaeus Lambros. I didn’t fully understand how addicting, emotional, love bubble absorbing, and fulfilling Tim’s story was going to be.

Kristy writes with such force that you are emotionally driven while reading. These emotions can range from all out comedy, drowning in tears or an overall feeling of satisfaction. It is hot, spicy, and heartwarming. Interpreter hits on all these points and then some.

When reading any book from the CIB series, you just get this feeling like you are returning home. The boys and girls are written so that you feel that you are part of this wonderfully inclusive club, where no one is biologically related, but every single one of these characters is your brother or sister. Tim is no exception.

Timaeus is one of the Marine veterans that Anniston had picked up in Commandeer in Briefs. He has always been somewhat reserved and in Interpreter, we find out why. When Tim is going through an upheaval in every aspect of his life, his ‘family’ is there for him, including Aspen (who is ABSOLUTELY adorable throughout this book). Aspen is the one thing to help Tim begin to accept what is going on in his life. With the rest of his family, he begins to step out into the real world again and it is through this that he meets Milah.

Milah is a delight. She is feisty, driven, adorable, quirky, and in a bind. She is completely lovable with all her idiosyncrasies. Milah is family oriented, has a certain affinity to a little boy named Oliver, and a deeper appreciation for the hearing impaired and ASL speaking community. Through all her Costa Rican feistiness, she is truly a teddy bear inside, albeit a feisty teddy bear.

I’ve already alluded to some secondary characters in this book but haven’t touched on all of them. Milah’s best friend, Felipe, is a character. He is there to help her, whether that be with fashion tips, men, or reality checks. I think everyone should have a friend like Felipe! The boys of the foundation, along with there significant others are hysterical. They bring so much comedy, it’s nice to revisit with them and their usual banter.

Kristy brought her all when she wrote Interpreter. Interpreter is without a doubt, hands down my favorite book. I still love Cade and his story, Gorgeous, but Tim is magical. She has totally hit it out of the park with Interpreter. I fully believe that this is her best book yet. You will be in for a treat!!
