Vi and Penelope are one of my favorite writing duos, and I love this standalone world they created. I am always very pleasantly surprised by the plots, and the romance.

FULL REVIEW TO COME THIS WEEK

BLURB

It started out like any normal day.

Then the fender bender happened.

The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.

Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.

Whoops!

Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.

To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.

But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.

This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.

Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

#NewRelease “Neat” by Kandi Steiner

Image may contain: 2 people, outdoor, nature and text

Neat by Kandi Steiner

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing date: September 19, 2019


Aundi’s Musings…

5 Whiskey Laced CROWNS

This story is decadently romantic read embedded with Romeo and Juliet level angst. Kandi draws you in from page one and grabs hold of your heart until the final sentence. I loved everything about this small-town romance that will leave you with all the feels and so much more.

Mine. All my life, I’d wanted to look at something—anything—and feel that one, possessive, all empowering word ringing true to my bones. 

I am without a doubt 100% obsessed with Logan Daniel Becker. He is everything you could ask for in a book boyfriend. He’s smart, funny, insanely romantic, and utterly swoon inducing. He will put a goofy smile on your face and butterfly’s will take up residence in your stomach while reading this. My heart ached for this adorable man who just wanted to find someone who made him feel what his parents had the fortune of experiencing. He wants the once in a lifetime love that makes your soul complete. I could not get enough of him and his quirky OCD type habits that made him even that much more lovable. 

I smirked. “I never said I thought you were a minx.” “But you did,” she fired back with a smirk of her own. Her eyes glowed a little fiercer then. “You still do.”

Mallory is struggling to find her own way in this world. She doesn’t agree with the way her family handles situations and she feel’s suffocated by them and their actions. She is a beautifully creative soul just looking for something to call her own. My heart broke for Mallory, her family really is awful not only to her but to those around them. They feel entitled and are completely manipulative. Mallory has tried to distance herself as much as possible but inevitably she ends up coming home. However, in doing this she reconnects with Logan. Mallory is perfect for Logan she is the mess to his neat. And together they balance each other out, finding in each other what they have both been looking for. 

“Oh, yeah?” Mallory asked, scooting up to look at me. “How’d you know?” “He looked at her the way I look at you,” I explained easily, moving her hair away from her face. “Like forever was sitting right there in her eyes.”

This story will tug at your heartstrings in the best possible way. You will fall head over heels in love with Logan and his beautiful soul. Mallory and Logan’s love is so pure and completely captivating to watch unfold through the pages. Read this story and fall in love with these character’s and this wonderful town that Kandi has created, you will not be disappointed. I can’t wait to continue this journey.

#NewRelease “The Dugout” by Meghan Quinn

THE DUGOUT by Meghan Quinn
Release Date: September 19th


Aundi’s Musings…

5 Home Run CROWNS

I cannot stress enough how much I loved this story. This book spoke to me on so many levels, I laughed out loud, I cried, I was angry, and I swooned. This story will take you on a ride through all your emotions. Carson and Milly will claim your heart and soul. Meghan hit a home run with this one!

It’s as if I was Baby in Dirty Dancing when she speaks to Johnny for the first time. “I carried a watermelon.” Yup, that’s me, the I carried a watermelon girl.

There are so many things that I love about this story but first and foremost I loved Carson. He was a legit good guy. He was dealt some really crappy hands in life but for the most part he was genuine and nice to everyone. He’s also sarcastic and funny as hell, which speaks to me on a visceral level seeing as I too am incredibly sarcastic. 

I loved the way he was with Milly, he knew that she was inexperienced regarding the opposite sex, so he goes out of his way to make sure not to push her to fast or make her feel uncomfortable. Talk about all the swoons, he melted my heart into a puddle on the floor (literally it’s still there on the floor). But holy smokes all the melt your kindle hotness once they finally get together. I couldn’t get enough; it was sweet and sexy and all the things you could imagine. And honestly, I think the realness with which it was written was what got to me the most. Meghan kept it natural and how you could really see it happening. Especially since Milly is so inexperienced, it was refreshing to see.

He’s slighty clumsy, lost in his lust for me, and it’s empowering. 

Milly is fantastic I loved that she was so knowledgeable about sports and put the boys to shame with her skills. This is empowering to read and to know that yes there are women out there who know more than men in this regard. You don’t see it often. She’s sweet and feisty and absolutely not afraid to put the men in her life in their place. She was pure passion and fire it’s a beautiful thing. I also loved that she was awkward around Carson it was so sweet. Their interactions were amazing and so freaking funny I couldn’t get enough. Meghan wrote her in a way that you can completely relate to especially if you’ve ever liked a guy that you thought was out of your league. 

I realize that Milly isn’t just it for me. She’s my soul mate, put on this earth to be by mu side and for me to be by hers. I love this girl, hard. So fucking hard. 

This story and their love are All. The Things! Meghan grabs you from the start with her humor and amazing writing and doesn’t let you go until the last page. Carson and Milly will own every part of you and their journey will leave you breathless. Go grab it and read this you will not be disappointed!!!!

#Excerpt “Park Avenue Player” by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Park Avenue Player

Release date: 9/23/2019

A Contemporary Romance Novel 

New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


BLURB

It started out like any normal day.

Then the fender bender happened.

The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.

Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.

Whoops!

Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.

To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.

But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.

This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

#Review “Cherry Beats” by Vicki James

Image result for cherry beats vicki james

Cherry Beats (A rockstar romance ) by Vicki James

**LIVE NOW**


Tricia’s Musings…

4 She prefers the drummer Crowns

Tessa Lisbon has had a crush on Presley West from the time they were at high school together but a four year age gap, he being the elder, ensured she was most certainly not on Presley’s radar.

Fast forward several years and we find Tessa working in a bar, still infatuated with the unattainable boy who has now grown up to be a successful drummer in an up and coming British rock band. I felt her dismay, not to mention her jealousy, when she had to watch as Presley paraded a new woman in front of her each week, seemingly unaware of her attraction to him. Tessa, however, is no shrinking violet, she’s confident, with a great personality, and her witty one liners and clever comebacks had me laughing out loud.

I found Presley to be quite a complicated character, and I got a somewhat lonely vibe from him. The relationship between him and Tess was often frustrating at times. Quite a rollercoaster, firey and angsty, and not always sweet, but most definitely hot. The chemistry between them was smoking and quite frankly, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. There are a lot of fantastic sexy times, which this author writes so well and their bedroom, shower, balcony, shenanigans are sure to get you hot under the collar.

There’s a great cast of well developed supporting characters, each with their own unique personalities, both good and bad, and I can’t help but hope they start shouting at this author to write their stories too.

This is a different type of rockstar romance than you might expect. It focuses mainly on the push and pull between Tess and Presley. Their lives were not always a bed of roses but Ms. James’s writing skills brought these wonderful characters, their feelings, thoughts and dilemmas to life. All in all a very enjoyable read.

But one day, Jared sends her a gift from Bliss. Then another—and another. So when Sarah walks into his office demanding to know why he can’t stop sending her gifts, he makes her an offer she somehow can’t refuse: be his fake girlfriend for the weekend while attending his brother’s engagement party.

#NewRelease “Entice” by Ava Harrison

ENTICE by Ava Harrison
Release Date: September 16th


Sarah’s Musings…

5 FORBIDDEN CROWNS

I absolutely love Grayson and River. These two are more than just a lust filled forbidden nature, there is a real, authentic relationship that exemplifies everything we love in a good romance.

Grayson is the stoic and often abrasive hero. As the story progresses readers understand the motivation behind closing himself off to others. River is the younger, free spirited heroine who has her own insecurities. These two, however are kismet, and I love who they become together.

What makes me love this story and this couple so much is that readers get a real, authentic love. It never ever is simply about lust for them. The plot is fantastically paced and lends to the real-ness behind their relationship. Everything from the plot to he resolution is perfect, and I’m so very excited for the next brother.

The narrators were also fantastic. I love listening to Grayson and his dirty talk, the declarations of love, and River’s narrator was great as well. I always enjoy Ava’s audiobooks.

This standalone is without a doubt a must read. Steamy, romantic, and heartwarming, I loved every single word.

beta read / audiobook review

Aundi’s Musings…

5 Forbidden CROWNS

Ava has created a beautifully constructed world filled with passion, forbidden romance and ultimately forgiveness. This story will take hold of you from the start and keep you enthralled until the final word. Ava’s signature way with words draws out all your inner most emotions and leaves you breathless. This story is a pure passion filled ride of the forbidden and the consequences of wanting what you can’t have. 

I know I’m playing with fire, but sometimes, you need to be burned to feel.

River is so very young, but even so, she has lived quite the life. Her mother had more of the hippie outlook on the world. So, they traveled a lot and she was homeschooled. Because of this and her mother leaving her when she was a child River finds it hard to form attachments. Also because of her mother’s outlook on life she works hard to be the exact opposite of her flighty mother. But in doing this she loses who she is. She carries a lot of abandonment issues which plays a huge role in her relationships. I loved the honesty of River, she had issues and serious baggage. But Ava wrote her in such a relatable way. I mean who doesn’t have some sort of issues in their life that they are trying to overcome. River tries hard not to let these issues interfere in her life, but with certain situation’s it brings to the surface all these problems. 

There’s something about her that drives me mad. She is almost fully ripe, but not quite. Dancing on the fringe of fully blossomed. It’s like watching a rose opening its petals one by one in slow motion.

Ah Greyson, he’s the sexy older man who is friends with River’s father. Grey exercises control in all aspects of his life, he doesn’t like to let other’s in. Grey is fighting his own demons and has his own hefty set of baggage that he’s lugging around. He is brooding and calculated as well as angry and distant. But when he see’s River again for the first time in years he starts to change. He hasn’t seen her since she was a child and now, she a woman on the cusp. Grey is immediately attracted to River but of course being as he’s friends with her father he feels like they would be crossing some serious boundaries. Grey was sexy and demanding, he tries hard to stay away from her but their draw towards each other is too strong to be denied. 

I loved watching as River helped draw out the softer lighter side to Grey. Seeing their connection strengthen and both grow into better stronger versions of who they are was utterly satisfying. Not to mention the tantalizingly sexy slow burn build up is enough to melt your Kindle. Grey’s subtle dominance in the bedroom was freaking delicious and hit’s all the right spots.

In my life, I have never experienced anything like that. The need to brand her as mine was all-consuming. The fact that she thought there was somebody else infuriated me. 

I absolutely loved this story. Ava has created wonderfully heartfelt characters that you can’t help but feel for them. River’s struggles are so real they will break your heart. Her and Grey’s chemistry is palpable you can feel it burst from the pages. If you’re in the mood for a delicious slow burn, taboo story that will give you all the feels and more this story is for you. Don’t miss out on the heartfelt journey of two lost souls who find their missing pieces in each other.

#NewRelease “Madman’s Method” by VF Mason

Madman’s Method by V.F. Mason is dark, twisted and addicting! AVAILABLE NOW!

Cover Photography: Wander Aguiar Cover Design: Sommer Stein


Tricia’s Musings…

4 Crazy and Twisted CROWNS

Madman’s Method is a first read for me by this author and was one of the most suspenseful, intriguing and yet frustrating books I’ve read in a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a dark, violent and often uncomfortable, read and the prologue gives you only a little inkling, a tease, of what’s to come. It has such a crazy and twisted plot that it’s going to be difficult to review without giving spoilers.

This is first and foremost a tale of revenge. It’s a tangled web of lies and deceit which will have you questioning who, if anyone, you can place your trust in. There are several characters at play here, most of whom are rather vile and selfish creatures. The clever, multi layered plot certainly had me wondering who precisely was exacting that revenge and on whom.

The story is told from three points of view, and by way of scenes from the present and memories from the past. These were straightforward enough until at some point it all started to get very complicated and confusing for me, as we’re only given parts of the whole. However, I’m glad I stuck with the program as gradually things opened up and became clearer, or so I thought! The plot itself is very cleverly thought out and I found myself becoming hugely invested, desperately turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. A couple of times I thought I knew how this was going to play out, but I missed the little clues and oh boy was I wrong. I actually don’t mind missing those cues that hint as to what may actually be about to occur. It makes the potentially shocking revelation even more enjoyable for me and on this occasion, I never saw it coming. I can’t wait to see how this all concludes. Bring on October and Madman’s Cure, I’m ready. At least I think I am!

It is said, before you embark on a journey of revenge dig two graves. I have a feeling that in this instance, before this tale is told, we’re going to need a whole row of them. Continue Reading

Grayson and River are all the forbidden romance you could want. Ava Harrison provides a romance with depth, a chemistry so strong they can’t deny it, and a story that captivates. It is a must read.

FULL REVIEW TO COME THIS WEEK

Blurb:

Eight years ago, I gave Grayson Price a piece of my heart.

To him, I was the strange girl whose mom had just abandoned her.

To me, he was a savior, an anchor, someone who stood beside me on that beach.

The next time I saw him, I was twenty, and he was thirty-six.

He didn’t remember me.

And when he flirted…

I didn’t tell him.

By the time he found out, it was too late.

We tried to deny our desire, but our attraction was too enticing.

Eight years ago, I gave Grayson Price a piece of my heart.

Too bad he’s my dad’s best friend.

About The Fall of Legend:

We come from two different worlds.

I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.

I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.

Our paths never should have crossed.

We never should have met. 

That doesn’t change the facts.

I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.

Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.

Burn in hell to have a single night.

Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will. 

If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.

#NewRelease “Another” by Fiona Cole

Another by Fiona Cole

Release Date: September 12, 2019


Sarah’s Musings…

4 CROWNS

I really enjoyed this book. I had major love for Corina’s character from the previous standalone in the series, and I needed her to get her HEA, and Ian was perfect for her. Their banter made the whole book.

Ian’s goofiness and general attitude about life made him the perfect counterpart to Corina’s more serious and thought out plans. He made her laugh more and feel more, and she made him want to settle and be a bit more serious. I enjoyed the way they balanced each other. Additionally, their banter was great, and the chemistry in the bedroom was fire (but it is Fiona Cole, and this woman can write HOT scenes).

The plot was unfortunately completed expected. From very early on, I knew the conflict and the general issues the couple would face. I still very much enjoyed the book, but I personally prefer a few surprises or not to be able to know the basic gist of the story very early on. That being said, as with most Fiona Cole books, the writing was fantastic. I enjoy her style, and the Voyeur series is my favorite of hers.

If you want sexy, funny, sweet, emotional, then you definitely need to read Another. It was all of this, and you’ll definitely fall in love with this strong heroine and lovable hero.

#NewRelease “Truly Yours” by Kennedy Fox

Truly Yours, the anticipated conclusion of Mason & Sophie’s story is HERE from Kennedy Fox! 
This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!


Sarah’s Musings…
3.5 CROWNS
There were parts of this book I really loved. LOVED. The beginning. I couldn’t consume this story fast enough. The ending. I love a Kennedy Fox HEA. And the epilogue. Lord, these ladies know how to hook a reader for the next book. But there were also parts that dragged a bit for me.

Mason and Sophie are cute together. In the bedroom, they are fire. Like most KF, men, Mason has that protective instinct that makes a romance reader swoon. There were times, though, that it become too much. Too much dialogue for me and reiterating the same sentiments. Sophie is a truly strong character for all she has endured. I liked that aspect of her story and character, and that we got see someone overcome a traumatic experience in a realistic way was great.

The story had entertaining, supenseful, sexy, and everything in between. I do like this core group of friends, and how they banter with one another. Some of my favorite scenes are when they get together as a group. There were moments, however, that seemed to stretch the plausibility of it all, which is ultimately okay in the grand scheme of a story. I think ultimately it comes down to there are so many parts of this story that I wanted to be fleshed out and there were parts that seemed redundant, making the story drag for me.

Although this hasn’t been my favorite KF duet, I am still a fan of their writing. They create some of the best heroes. They are queens of surprise plot twists that pull readers back in for more. And the chemistry they create between their heroes and heroines is explosive in terms of physical and emotional intimacy. KF fans will enjoy Sophie and Mason’s story.
