Sarah’s Musings…

4 Love of the Gods CROWNS

GAHH!! Giana’s writing is always so solid, her prose gorgeously written, and Enamoured is the exemplification off all that I love about her style.

Master Alexander did not disappoint in any capacity with the way he loves and fights for Cosima. I honestly couldn’t have loved this man who thinks so little of his capacity to love but has the biggest heart.

Cosmi transform from a slave to a queen, and I loved the way she evolves and comes to terms with what she loves about submission. She is also always willing to sacrifice for those she loves and punish those who harm them.

The plot was way more involved than I thought it would be, and there were many threads running, which at times detracted from the overall plot of Alexander and Cosima. Without giving away spoilers, there are parts that I felt were glossed over, that I wanted more details about, more build up to those moments. Now this is a lengthy book, so maybe that wasn’t possible. I did love the epilogue, and my heart was so happy for these two people who fought so hard for the HEA.

Overall, I loved this world. I became enamoured with this couple and, as always, the writing of Giana Darling.

#NewRelease “Insatiable” by Melanie Harlow

“Insatiable is absolute magic! Fabulous banter, volcanic level heat and a hero so sexy and swoon worthy he kicks all other book boyfriends off their pedestals.”

—Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

Insatiable - RB banner

Insatiable, an all-new “steamy and irresistible” friends to lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!


Insatiable AMAZON

Synopsis:

I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

#Reviews “Dirty Letter” by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Dirty Letters

Release Date: 11/05/2019 

A Contemporary Romance Novel 

New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


Tricia’s Musings…

4 heartwarming friends to lovers CROWNS

The title of the book should have given me a clue, but I was rather surprised by the speed at which the flirty banter in the letters between Luca and Griffin accelerated, given that they were kids when they’d last written to each other over 8 years previously. Let me tell you, things got very racy very quickly! I loved the fact that in this age of modern technology, they stuck to the pen and paper method of communication and their letters were fun and funny and made me laugh. I enjoyed this aspect of the story but felt it could’ve done with a little more depth emotionally.

The majority of the book was light hearted, and often quite quirky, with Luca’s wonderful bird loving therapist Doc and Hortencia her pig, not to mention the fact that I’ll never be able to look at a Furby key chain in the same way again!

There was, however, a serious aspect to this book in the form of Luca’s anxiety, her guilt and agoraphobia, and much emphasis is placed on this part of her life. I think the fact that I felt somewhat frustrated with Luca at times, meant that these authors actually did a very good job communicating her difficulties in a realistic, although respectful way. The fact that there’s no quick fix, and progress is often one step forward two steps back, rang true. I loved Griffin’s acceptance of Luca and his willingness to accommodate her needs in whatever way he could. He was no pushover, but he wasn’t overbearing either, simply a gorgeous man.

The last twenty percent or so actually took quite an emotional turn that I wasn’t expecting. Although it was quite the contrast, I really enjoyed those last few chapters. I would, however, have liked to have seen more romance overall between these two but, nevertheless Luca and Griffin’s tale is an entertaining, heartwarming, sweet and sexy friends to lovers story that I’m sure many will enjoy.

ARC review
Sarah’s Musings…
4 See Ya Later Alligator CROWNS
While I was expecting a steamy romance, I wasn’t expecting the level of steam based on the synopsis. And let me be clear, if you read super steamy novels, you will not think this is uber-steamy but the quick paced love story caught me a bit by surprise.
These two are incredibly likable characters. Griffin and Luca had great chemistry, and I liked that they both brought each other a sense of peace from the chaos of their lives, which comes in different media platforms. They provided each other a sense of normalcy, which very much paralleled their earlier, more innocent relationship.
The one aspect of the story that was a bit jarring was the pace in which the rekindled their friendship and quick escalation to love. The friendship of their youth wasn’t solidified enough to truly believe their quick re-connection, and we didn’t really get to see them fall in love as adults. It just was. Once they are together, thought, things get hot and steamy. And while the conflict is pretty clear from the beginning, Vi and Penelope seem to pull a signature heave plot revelation that is surprising.
Dirty Letters is fast, dirty, and entertaining. It is an insta-love story that will certainly be a must read for many, especially those who prefer fast paced relationships.

ENAMOURED (The Enslaved Duet #2) by Giana Darling
Release Date: November 8th


Blurb:

It was the worst day of my life.

I know most people say that about something obviously horrific—a first heartbreak, the discovery of a fatal illness, or the funeral of a loved one—but my situation was a little different.
Not only was it my wedding day, but it was also the day I chose to die.

Two men.
The first, my Master, my captor, and my impossible love.
The other, his brother, a mafioso I was meant to ensnare and ruin.

If I had any hope of living a normal life reunited with my family, I had to make a choice.
End my old life as I knew it and start fresh, or take down the monsters that hunted me and haunted my Master.

In the end, the decision was never really mine to make. Because Alexander Davenport would come to claim me even in death.

#CoverReveal “In the Unlikely Event” by L.J. Shen

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

ITUE - CR banner

In the Unlikely Event, an all-new must-read contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is coming November 19th and we have the gorgeous cover!

Cover designed by Hang Le


In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.

An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.

We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.

Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.

In New York.

And he’s America’s music obsession.

The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.

The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.

I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.

I have a career I love.

A boyfriend I adore.

An apartment, a roommate, a life.

I changed. He changed, too.

But Mal kept the napkin.

Question is, will I keep my word?

#Review “Crime and Periodicals” by Nora Everly

Image result for crime and periodicals

Crime and Periodicals, an all-new heart-felt single dad romance

from Nora Everly, is available now!


Tricia’s Musings…

3 Cute CROWNS

A first read for me by this author, Crime and Periodicals is a very sweet, and for the most part, light hearted story.

There were aspects of the book I enjoyed and others not so much. Wyatt is a deputy sheriff, recently returned to town with his two young children Mak and Mel. I really liked Wyatt and enjoyed the interactions between him and his adorable daughters very much. In fact, all the kids in this book are great characters and well written.

My favorite parts overall were when Wyatt and Sabrina actually got some one on one time. I found Sabrina a difficult character to warm to, although I did like her. Her inner dialogue did not match her outer persona and it had me chuckling. Despite valiant attempts to overcome it, her social anxiety resulted in her being really awkward most of the time, and rather clumsy. There were many occasions when she tripped or fell, usually into a hard body, which had me rolling my eyes. I was sad to see that this shyness resulted in her being overprotected and treated like a child by the majority of the people around her, despite her being 27 years of age. Whilst this allowed Wyatt in particular to be her knight in shining armor coming to her rescue, rather than endearing her to me I’m afraid I found that rather irritating.

Whilst I can recommend this book for those lovers of cute, heartwarming stories, (and there’s nothing wrong with that), unfortunately this was just too sweet for me. Although I admired Sabrina’s attempts to come out of her shell and stand up for herself, the conflicts didn’t really amount to anything and were quickly resolved. I prefer my stories a little grittier and my heroines a little more bold and sassy.

#Review “Do You Dare?” by Lylah James

Image may contain: one or more people and text

DO YOU DARE? (Truth and Dare Duet #1) by Lylah James
Release Date: October 24th


Aundi’s Musings…

5 I Dare You Stars

This book is a deliciously slow burn/bully/friends to lover’s romance that will leave you writhing and wanting for more. I could not get enough of Maddox and Lila, they are legit Perfection! Lylah has created a complex world filled with so many layers and contrasting emotions. My feelings were all over the place while reading this, and I ate up every minute of it. This book will take you on a ride starting from page one!

A shadow loomed over his face, his expression almost threatening. There was a predatory feel in his glare as he watched me closely.

Maddox is this complex Alpha jerk who runs the school as The King and gets any and everything that he wants. But underneath all of that bravado he’s lost, lonely and keeps everyone at arm’s length. He went through trauma as a child and it changed him irreparably. This just makes him that much more attractive and makes you want to try and fix him. He’s parents but specifically his father are cold and distant. Maddox is left constantly feeling as if he isn’t good enough no matter what he does. His upbringing and what happened to him, broke my heart into pieces. While watching him go through that I could feel my heart constrict to the point of pain, that’s how much it hurt seeing it happen.

Maddox was on the top – the pack leader. He was the King, and he wore his crown with a cocky grin. He was untouchable to his rivals, and he was every girl’s favorite dick to ride.

Lila is the project girl, she’s only at this prestigious school due to scholarship. She is whip smart and sassy to boot. I loved her, she didn’t take anyone’s crap and put Maddox in his place from the get-go. She never let any of the girl’s walk all over her and constantly stood up to them and their intentions. She too went through some terrible things that will bring tears to your eyes. Lila exudes strength she doesn’t like to rely on people she stuffs her emotions so far down so that she doesn’t appear vulnerable to anyone not even her grandparent’s.

His lips tasted like… sin. And I hated myself for reacting the way I did to his kiss.

Maddox and Lila were broken but in differing ways. But each of their broken pieces found a connection within the other. It’s as if their trauma brought them together in a way that other’s would never understand. They had each other and anytime one would break the other was right there to support them. This was so heartwarming to see, watching them fall apart and then watching the other support them makes your soul sing. This couple will seriously tug at your heartstrings. The things that they had to go through and the places it brought them will bring you to your knees.

“Lila.” My name on his lips sounded like poetry. So right, so perfect…. so filthy.

Lylah has crafted such an amazing story, her words, her creation was written so well you feel what the characters are feeling. I wasn’t kidding when I said this was a slow burn romance, it’s not an understatement. You will feel like throwing your Kindle with how long it takes them to get their shit together. The angst level in this story is next level. But the ride they take you on is so worth it. Watching them come together and go through every stage in their relationship it’s like you are right there with them experiencing it. I loved everything about this story. But that ending though, that about killed me. I need the conclusion to this story desperately. So be prepared for an EPIC cliff hanger, I’m still reeling.

#Review “Between Now and Heartache” by Dylan Allen

BNAH - AN.jpg

Between Now and Heartbreak, part two in the heart wrenching, sexy and surprising Forever Trilogy from Dylan Allen, is available now!


Tricia’s Musings…

5 Soul Shattering CROWNS

Dylan has done it again, in this second part to this beautifully written trilogy. She pulls no punches when it comes to the angst level in this one. I don’t know how many times I had to put my Kindle down so that I didn’t throw her. (I mean it’s not her fault). My poor heart completely shattered while reading this and only Dylan can put it back together, her words are a soothing balm to my aching soul. 

“Oh, Carter. Oh, no,” she whispers, her hand comes back to my chest, covering my heart. The binding that’s been constricting it loosens at the touch of the woman who it wants to belong to. 

I was deluding myself by thinking that book one was full of angst and incredibly emotional because this just blew that one out of the water. I love these two characters so much. I am so committed to their love and their journey. Dylan has written these both with such a realness to them, you can’t help but feel a connection to them. I need them to be happy not just want them to be, but I physically need them to be.

I tasted her magic. That’s all it took to hook me. And now I have to live with the knowledge that I’ll never have it again. 

Carter is still struggling to figure out who he is. Now that he has learned some of the things regarding his past, he’s trying to figure out the rest. This poor man has been through so much. He just want’s answers and keeps getting either the run around or coming up against huge roadblocks. His struggles to find out exactly who and where he comes from really resonates with me. Everyone should know where they come from. I think it’s so important for your future to understand your past. And it broke my heart every single time he ran into an obstacle in his quest. 

“You, my love, were born with wings. And when you spread them, you will fly.”

OMG Beth is pure strength; I don’t know a single person who could go through what she did and still be standing. This woman gives me chills with how amazing she is. She also still trying to figure out who she is, but when she does watch out because she is going to be a force. She shines with both inner and outer beauty and it’s such a shame that those around her can see her. I want more than anything to watch her fully evolve into the absolutely amazing person I know she will be and see all the fantastic things she will do. 

His kiss, minty and sweet, consumes me and I never want to breath again if it means his lips won’t be on mine. 

This is more than just a love story; this is a story about finding yourself and who you were meant to be. These two go through so many things and have to overcome so many obstacles to be together. Their journey is not an easy one, but it is a necessary one. Their connection is so all consuming and so powerful you can feel it bleed from the pages every time they are in the same room together; it makes your heart ache with so many emotions. 

Dylan’s words will leave your heart and soul shattered in the best possible way. As you move through the story; each page and every word will wrap around your heart until you are completed consumed by Beth and Carter. They will become part of you once you start this journey. Read this and fall in love with these characters as I have, you will not be disappointed.

#Review “In Peace Lies Havoc” by Amo Jones

In Peace of Lies Havoc by Amo Jones

Midnight Mayhem, Book One 

STANDALONE Series


Sarah’s Musings…

5 ACE OF SPADES CROWNS

Well, in true Amo fashion, I’m sitting her at the end of In Peace Lies Havoc just staring. I don’t want to pick up another book. I don’t want to do anything. I want to stare at my kindle and hope more chapters appear, because I’m so in love with not just Kingston and Dove’s story, but the whole Midnight World she created.

I am head over heals in love with Kingston and all the Brothers are just to die for. I love all Amo’s alpha heroes. And while I have my favorites, Kingston is one to rival them all. He is broody, and protective and dangerous, he will most certainly bring readers to their knees throughout the story, on multiple occasions. I couldn’t help but fall under his devious and dangerous charm.

Dove’s story is truly what makes her interesting. Her back story, the glimpses shown in the short flashbacks, reveals just enough to keep readers guessing about this new heroine. Dove does have all the standard characteristics we admire in a Amo Heroine, and I loved the extra component or the show and what it brought to her character.

This story, in true Amo fashion, is 100% a wild ride. I couldn’t put this book down, and just when I thought I had it figured out, Amo flipped the script and I was back to staring at my kindle dumbfounded. Dumb. Founded. It has all the twists and turns we love, and a new world that just ensnared me. I’m Already dying for more.

In Peace Lies Havoc is your next must read dark romance. The unique plot line, the alpha males, the feisty heroine, and whole Midnight Mayhem world has me already begging for more.

Beta

Aundi’s Musings…

5 Little Bird CROWNS

Are you ready for a little Mayhem? Amos books should come with warning labels: Will cause you bouts of insomnia, hot flashes, wet panties and the need to be choked. This right here is Amo at her absolute best, reading this just solidifies why she is Queen of Mind Fuckery!! She has crafted a multi-layered tension filled ride full of all the twist and turns that you can handle and some you can’t, keeping your ass firmly planted on the edge of your seat.

My soul recognizes hers like an old friend, as if they’d been friends for lifetimes before ours.

I was thoroughly engrossed in the storyline from the second I started reading. I legitimately could not put it down until I was finished. This world that she has created is unlike anything I’ve EVER read. Kingston and Dove are All. The. Things. This couple is pure freaking fire, you can feel the tension between them pour off the pages and saturate your skin, pulling you in and making you want to be a part of Amos creation. Their connection is powerful, and all-consuming burning deep and strong, following them even in the shadows. I haven’t been this attached to a couple since Bishop and Madison!!!

I freeze at his proximity. The smell of lathered soap, honey, and ask quickly becoming a heady combination of sin.

I loved all the characters in this story. Each one brings their own intensity and influence to the book and is completely and utterly individualized. Which is one of the things I love most about Amo. Every character she introduces is so completely different than the last. It makes you love each and every one for a myriad of different reasons, so that you have no trouble falling for them ALL.

“Well, you remember that next time you have your tongue down the devil’s throat.” He chuckles. “All things sinister taste like honey.”

When Amo said she created a new world for us she was not joking, Amo swung for the damn fences with this one! This story is infused with all the tension and heart pumping angst that we’ve come to love from Amo. But this story brings so much more. The depth with which she writes makes you feel as if you’re right there with them, having the same experiences. That is how you know Amo is an exceptional writer, when you’re not just reading a story but experiencing one!! Once you read this you will become obsessed with the Midnight Mayhem family and impatiently waiting for the next EPIC ride that we know is coming.

#NewRelease “Dirty Letters” by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Dirty Letters

Release Date: 11/05/2019 

A Contemporary Romance Novel 

New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


 Synopsis:

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

But what I found could change everything.

It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student.

I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life.

I’ve never been the man she thinks I am.

Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep.

In her eyes, I’m determined to gain redemption.

I will have them both, even if I have to take my eye off the ball.

I’m sitting here trying to write my review, to get my thoughts out on paper and to explain my feelings for this story, whilst being all kinds of emotional. Wow, this book is wonderful. To be honest though, I struggled in the beginning. It was a slow start and I’ll admit I put it down a couple of times before I became invested. I’m not quite sure how, but around the 25 percent mark Ms Cherry worked her magic on me. I began to see Landon’s vulnerability. I had a sort of “ah ha” moment when I realised he was not what he seemed to be, in reality was not what he portrayed to the world, and from then on I was hooked. I fell deeper into the story and couldn’t put it down.

I don’t want to get into the plot itself but I will say Landon and Shay are so much more than I expected them to be. The phrase “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” couldn’t be more appropriate for this pair. Their personalities may be like night and day and their situations somewhat contrasted in parts, somewhat similar in others, but nevertheless they each have their own difficulties and obstacles to overcome. I loved both these characters but Landon’s strength in particular blew me away. My heart broke for him and I just wanted to hug him and make everything all right.

They are not your typical teenagers, but neither are they trying to act like 40 year olds. Their reactions to certain situations seemed real to me and Shay’s naïveté had me laughing out loud. The way they interacted with the adults around them was, for me, just right. Sticking up for themselves without going overboard, backing down rather than becoming disrespectful. I’m so pleased this author showed their vulnerabilities as well as their strengths and their need for, and reliance on, certain people in their lives was heartwarming and true to life.

Looking back now, having finished the book, those first chapters make a whole lot more sense to me. It was easy to forget those feelings of doubt I had in the beginning and I was so pleased I’d kept reading. Knowing what I know now, I would’ve kicked myself if I hadn’t. As this is book one of a duet, this part of Landon and Shay’s story does end on a cliffhanger, although not a shocking one. I found it emotional, yet full of hope. Their journey is far from over and I’m itching to read part two and find out what life has in store for them next.

#NewRelease “Beard Necessities” by Penny Reid

Billy Winston’s family is going to see him happy and in love if it’s the last thing they do.

BANNER_BN_RB

Beard Necessities, the final standalone in the bestselling romantic comedy Winston Brothers series from New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!


20191008-BN

Synopsis:

No one deserves a happily-ever-after quite as much as the second oldest Winston brother and his lady love, Claire McClure (aka Scarlet St. Claire). Cruelty and circumstance tore them apart almost twenty years ago. Secrecy and bitterness kept them separated.

But you know who’s tired of their separation and stubbornness? Everyone. Especially Billy Winston’s family. And now they’re going to do something about it.

Well-meaning interference means the star-crossed lovers can’t stop tripping over each other in the hills of Tuscany, the catacombs of Rome, and the waterways of Venice. Billy and Claire find themselves thrown together and at the mercy of the Winston siblings’ shenanigans.

But will their forced proximity bring them together? Or push them even further apart?

This second-chance romance brings back the entire Winston gang, playing cupid in one last story of love, hi-jinks, and family collusion.

BEARD NECESSITIES is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, and can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s probably best read after books 0.5, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the Winston Brothers series.

Sarah’s Musings…

This. BOOK. This is the book I have been waiting for since book one of this series, and although I am so very excited for this book, I will be sad to see the end of this series. It is always hard to say goodbye a family you have grown to love, and the Winston family is certainly one of the books.
