❤ HOOKING UP by Helena Hunting 4.5 star review ❤

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars




Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical. 

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up. 



*arc received for an honest review * 4.5 stars!

I want to start with this.. for me,this was a one stop shop. I read this whole book in one sitting. okay, maybe one and a half because I needed sleep, but I dove right in and was addicted. now I know you see 4.5 stars and are wondering why not 5? I had two issues. one- I kept mixing up the hero and villians names. I don't know why. but I couldn't keep Armstrong and Lexington straight. I had to write myself a note. there was something about their names, so incredibly different , but I kept struggling with them. two- I couldn't jive with Armstrong strong arming Amie. the drag out. it got to be a little annoying. other than those two minor details I loved this story. the chemistry between these two characters was off the charts. we all know Helena can bring the heat when it comes to the sexy stuff, but with these two I love that we get to see their connection on a deeper level. you can feel them building this foundation while away. yes, it's hot as all get out, but Amie and Lex were about so much more than how hot they burn up the sheets. the secrecy is just added sexy.

I love reading Helena Hunting. she always delivers such a story complete with humor, heat, and love. she always makes me feel like I miss love when I'm done reading her books, and as much as I hate it, I love it.

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

❤I tried Magnetic Lashes.... here are my thoughts. ❤

So you may have heard about this new thing called Magnetic Lashes. Well, I decided to jump in and give them a try. Now, the first set I saw was on an Instagram ad. They were about $20 for the pair. I himmed and hawed over buying these lashes. So I jumped on trusty Amazon and bought a $10 pair.

❤4 star review of ENDURANCE by Georgia Cates❤

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I'm a doctor. Mobster. Killer.
My hands are covered in filth. I don't have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

I distance myself ... always remaining obscure, composed, restrained.
Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long.
Careful to hide my interest.
Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.

I do it for her--suffer in silence--because it's what is best for the woman I love.
And she has no idea.

She'll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he'll earn the right to claim her.
Make her his wife.
Kill. Me. Slowly.

I'm running out of time. Only a month remains before she's beyond my reach forever.
I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm.
I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning.
I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets.
Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she's been loved.

To have her is to taint her.
I should stay away. But I won't. I can't.
I'm a selfish bastard.
A selfish bastard in love.

***Intended for readers ages 18+ due to sexual content, adult situations, and language.

*****************

Endurance is a STANDALONE novel. It is the first spinoff of The Fellowship world introduced in The Sin Trilogy: A Necessary Sin, The Next Sin, One Last Sin.

Although Endurance may be read as a standalone, I recommend reading The Sin Trilogy first if you wish to have a full understanding of The Fellowship world. The choice is yours. (An ebook bundle set with all three books is available at a discounted price.)

Each Sin Series Standalone Novel will feature a different couple.

No cliffhanger.



*arc provided for an unbiased and honest review*



I love the sin series. I have the first 3 books in ebook and audio. and I may have just listened to it 3x. I just love this series. so the story of Jamie and Ellison, I just knew I had to read it.

I love the story of Jamie and Ellison. I may not be a fan of the month long plan, but I was curious to see how it was going to play out. How Jamie was going to handle her claiming, the brothers, and the plan? because, like Ellison, no matter how many times he explained it, I still didn't understand the need for it.

I loved getting to see Sin and Blue again. I think Sin may be one of my favorite book boyfriends ever, so Jamie had some big shoes to fill here. some big, sexy, Irish, hot mobster shoes to fill. while he may not fill them completely, he still makes a valiant effort. and holy hot damn is it steamy, sexy and oh so hot. who knew our sweet little doctor was so hot under that all.

I absolutely love Georgia's writing style and storylines. she has written one of my all time favorite series that I rave and gush about all the time. she is nothing short of a fantastic writer and has delivered ,yet again, another extraordinary book in this series. I can't wait to see what she does with Wes.

You think this book was good the first time around? Guess what, it's just as good the second time too. Yes, I've read it more than once. This series and this author, is a go-to for me.. She never fails.

My fellow readers,

I was listening to the radio yesterday, on my way home from dropping my kids off at school.
It's a Dallas country radio station and one of the things they said is they always hope when people listen in, in the morning they're on their way to do something fun. That they get to give them a laugh or a smile that morning. But yesterday was a hard day, waking up to the news of a mass shooting at a country festival in Las Vegas.

My Fellow Readers,

Our book community is very different now.
As readers, we hold the power in our own eReaders to say what we want to read. There is not a librarian or a book seller constantly standing over us and judging our erotica books on the same shelf as our young adult books. And why should anyone judge us?

❤ My review of the HOLLYWOOD DIRTY movie on Passionflix ❤ @passionflix





Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year. We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him. From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me. Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

❤ Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan 3 star review ❤

My rating: 3 of 5 stars




The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan...

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

*arc received in exchange for an honest and unbiased review for SO MUCH MORE by J Daniels *


Oh god how I missed our Bama crew. so so much. I missed their dirtiness almost as much as their tenderness , their alpha asses, and their protectiveness over their ladies...even starting at a young age, they're always so damn sweet on top of everything. and I have a feeling our Dolan is going to be the sweetest of them all.

I know you're probably wondering who we get to see, and we see them all. You're also probably wondering who's story was my favorite. Ben is always the most tender. Reed is dirtiest. Tully was the most feels .. and Luke ... well him and Tessa had me laughing out loud. so while I can never pick favorite, they are each my favorite for different reasons. each alpha has a different aspect I love so much. and even if this was short on words and length, J Daniels is sure to deliver our Bama men the way we love them the most
