Review: The Best Man (Alpha Men #2) by Natasha Anders

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

It has all the makings of a picture-perfect wedding. There’s just one detail that could have used a little more planning…

Hulking ex–rugby player Spencer Carlisle has crushed on Daffodil McGregor since high school. On the field he knew the moves. Off, he was a clueless clod who never gained an advantage. Rejected and rebuffed, his infatuation finally cooled—like ice.

Now, it’s impossible not to feel the chill—since he’s the best man and she’s the maid of honor at their siblings’ wedding. For the sake of harmony, they’re calling a truce.

Daff has her reasons for being a cynic when it comes to romance. And twice as many for not letting on that she finds Spencer attractive—although she’d rather gnaw off her thumb than admit it. Still, there’s more to the sweet and sexy lug than meets the eye. Maybe he is the one who can heal her emotional scars. Maybe he’ll give her a second chance. Because Spencer could be Daff’s own best man—if it’s …

Release Day Review: Rockstar by Lauren Rowe

Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

It was lyrics at first sight when I saw Violet Rhodes across that crowded party. She was lights and darks, swirled together. Music in motion. And all of it while looking like a hitwoman at an Elvis convention.

I had nothing to offer the intriguing girl but a one-night stand. I figured I’d revel in my last night of anonymity before my first tour and shoot her a quick “We’ll always have L.A.!” goodbye the next morning.

But nothing went according to plan.

In one night, Violet crawled under my skin and into my bloodstream. She tattooed her name across my chest and between my legs. She became my muse. And then she was gone.

Now, months later, here she is again. And in a twist I never saw coming, it turns out Violet is ultra-violet radiation. Beautiful, ethereal light bringing with her the promise of damage and destruction.

My brain tells me to walk away from this girl, but my heart can’t stop feeling like she might be one of a kind . .…

Review: Time (Laws of Physics #3) by Penny Reid

Image
Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

A (brokenhearted) physicist.
Now an infamous (who is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE!! UGH!) musician.
The worst has already happened.

Mona has learned that she has nothing figured out and plans are meaningless. After leaving her in Aspen, Abram is now breaking sales-records, rising to rock star fame almost overnight. Mona can’t seem to escape him. He is literally everywhere, or at least images of him are.

Just when she thinks things can't get any more confusing, Abram returns . . . What happens next? Only TIME will tell.


Review:
Time. Time was not enough. Not nearly enough time with these amazing characters. It is one of those stories where you get to the end and you just want more, more, more. I saw the time left counting down as I read and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Mona and Abram. I didn't get nearly enough time with them even though we had three separate books. I still want more. I loved these two so freakin much and I…

Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot sum…

Review: Anti Hero by Skye Warren

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Nate Gaines used to think he was fighting for freedom. Then his team died in a fiery betrayal and he realized corruption went all the way to the top. He was no hero. Not anymore.

Not working for the highest bidder. A mercenary.

And the girl he loved? She was better off without him.

Until she became a target. He'd protect her. He would kill for her. He just couldn't let himself fall for her again. That would be dangerous for both of them.

WARNING: Contains an inked military man, a plucky reporter on a mission, and explosive chemistry!

ANTI HERO is a full-length standalone novel with plenty of heat and suspense. For a limited time only, includes the scorching military romance ON THE WAY HOME as a free bonus book!

Review:
Anti Hero was...okay. It wasn't amazing, it wasn't the worst book I have read, it was just...meh. Both of the characters are supposed to have these horrible backstories, but I didn't really see it…

Review: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Vanessa Mazur knows she's doing the right thing. She shouldn't feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary.

But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she's beyond shocked.

For two years, the man known as The Wall of Winnipeg couldn't find it in him to tell her good morning or congratulate her on her birthday. Now? He's asking for the unthinkable.

What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wants?

Review:
Forever ago a bunch of people I know were talking about The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. How much they loved the story and how wonderful it was, but I don't know. I read the synopsis and thought eh. I don't think this will be for me. It doesn't so…

Review:
All of Nothing at All has a storyline that I normally hate, but this author managed to write it in a way that while I still didn't love that piece, I didn't hate it either. Plus the overall story was really fun to read. *slight spoilers ahead*
Sydney has always loved Tristan, but when she finally grew up and he finally saw her as more than just a kid who follows him around all the tim…

Review: Eleanor & Grey by Brittainy C. Cherry

Image
Eleanor & Grey, an all-new beautiful and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available now!

Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Greyson East left his mark on me.

As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.

Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.

When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.

I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.

The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.

When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my j…

Review: Stetson (Iron Horse #1) by Danielle Norman

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.de * Goodreads

The only thing fancy about London Kelly was her name.
She was a jeans and boots kind of girl.

Until…
Her dad died.
Now, she’s left running the family cattle ranch and horse stables.

Review:
Stetson was one of those books that pleasantly surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. Reading the synopsis I was just meh on the whole thing, but it was fun. 
London is running the family ranch after her father died, but she is hitting a few bumps. Things keep happening and it is starting to look like someone is out to get her. That plus her one ranch hand who is not exactly listening to what he tells him as he thinks she …

When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…
