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”.

A warrior who goes shady when the law becomes dreary.

While conducting business at the St. Tatiana,
the most stunning woman I’ve ever seen enters my radar.
Isn’t it interesting that her name is Tatiana?
Isn’t it bizarre that she’s a nun?

it’s game on.

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!

Paid In Full by Chelsea Cameron–Review

EBOOK-PaidInFull[7577].jpg

 

Paid in Full is about Tempest and Deacon. It is another book in the Devil’s Due MC series. It can be read as a standalone, although it does contain couples (and slight themes mentioned) from previous books.

Tempest is an overworked, overstressed and extremely independent woman. She is the mother to an equally strong-willed teenager.

Deacon is an ex-Navy SEAL whose only real family left is his MC brothers. He is suffering psychological fallout from his last mission.

Tempest and Deacon have had a hook type relationship in the past, but they begin to feel more for each other after experiencing a couple issues. It appeared to be a quick, fast paced storyline warranting a quick read.

Ideal Image by Freya Barker and KT Dove–Review

Ideal Image Ecover-2-2

Ideal Image is about Stacie Gustafson and Nick Flynn.  Stacie is a single mother of a nine-year-old named Mak. She is a lawyer by trade, but is currently working from home, doing research for other lawyers. Nick Flynn is a corporate lawyer who lives in the small town that the Gustafson’s live in.

This is considered the second book in the ‘Snapshot novel’ series; however, there is a prequel and book number 1 that go along with Ideal Image. It is highly recommended that you read, Shutter Speed and Freeze Frame first, as each book builds on the previous. There is a different plotline in Ideal Image as they pertain to Nick and Stacie, however, Stacie is still suffering personal and emotional repercussions from the previous books.

This is a wonderfully emotional story that is full of heartwarming and heart wrenching moments. It is full of drama, suspense and mystery, along with romance and love. Freya and KT have written an exquisite book that is a huge paged turner.

Nick knows Stacie from back in college, however, Stacie doesn’t remember who he is. She is very self-conscious of some physical scarring that she had obtained in a previous accident. Through her sister-in-law, Isla, she becomes involved in a local children’s burn foundation. Isla has taken a multitude of portraits of Stacie to be auctioned off. Nick has always admired her from afar, but doesn’t think he has a chance at a beauty like Stacie. So, he continues to admire her from afar, by purchasing one of her portraits at the auction. Through these pictures, she encounters a ghost from her past. She learns that she must rely on those that love her, along with friends and people in her community for support. She doesn’t need to do things on her own.

It has romance, but also has elements of learning self-love and acceptance. Freya and KT have written an exquisite book that is more than a story, but an incredible telling of real life situations and scenarios. Their use of slightly ‘unorthodox’ heroes is great twist on usual take on usual romance books. In reading you realize that not all good things happen in your 20’s; there is a lot of living for other generations as well.  I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it!!

Move the Stars (Something in the way, book 3) by Jessica Hawkins–Review

jhmovethestarsbookcover5x8_high.jpg

 

Rating: 5.0 stars

To be honest, I don’t know how I feel about this book, which I don’t believe is necessarily a bad thing. My first reaction after getting done reading it, was that I hated it. Just plain hated it. But after some downtime and soul searching I realized why. It was because, that was how Ms. Hawkins wrote it. It was intended to be frustratingly emotional, angsty and heart wrenching. In order to write these characters with so much grit there needed passion to be involved. Passion for the characters, passion for the words the author wrote and a passionate response from the reader themselves.

I love the idea/concept of Lake and Manning together. They just seem to fit. I just couldn’t wait for these two to get their act together.  I really did dislike Tiffany and her obnoxious behavior (carryover from Something in the Way, book 1). However, she wasn’t the only one. Manning needed to up his game and seemed to fall short. It was difficult to read about these two, because just when you thought it was finally time for them to get together, something else would happen. To say they had many factors against them is an understatement.

When I think about why it hit me so hard, it’s because of the many things these guys went through. It is so easy as the reader (an outsider) to see what they’re doing and what could be done to correct it, yet can’t seem to get it right. In that aspect, Ms. Hawkins did a fabulous job to not give us a cookie cutter romance. I would love to see more of their future together as well as updates on Tiffany, mom and dad, etc. This series tore me apart and ripped me open, but I was finally able to piece myself together at the end.

With all that being said, I am SO going to miss Lake and Manning. They had a quintessential angsty love story that hits you hard. Kudos Ms. Hawkins for writing a stellar ending to this series. Despite everything I have said, I, truly, LOVED this book (series) and am sad to see Lake and Manning go.

Havoc by Ambere Sabo–Review

havoc_ambere sabo_banner

Havoc is the second book in the Silent Sons MC series by Ambere Sabo. This story is focused on Havoc and is a continuation of book 1 (Cessy).

It’s hard to review too much without giving away the plot but here’s what I can tell you. Havoc is a fast paced, hard hitting MC/cartel life story with raw, gritty emotions. It’s quite the page turner as one would rush to get to the end. There is a happily for now as each story builds on the previous book. I will warn you that she doesn’t hold back on situations, so there may be some trigger scenes (more graphic and violent than anything).

Havoc and Angel are an interesting couple. They have a common goal in mind, however, neither knows their true intentions when thrown together by Cessy and The Silent Sons. They fight for their next day while maintaining ahead of the demons that chase them from the past. It was satisfying to read about Venom & Cessy from the first book and how all their lives entwine with each other.

Considering Cessy was Ms. Sabo’s premiere book, she did an exceedingly wonderful job on her follow up. I look forward to where this series heads next.
