Finding Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #1)
by Siobhan Davis


Aundi’s Musings…

5 Tantalizing CROWNS

Let me preface this review by stating if you do not like taboo reads then do not read this. For those like me, who have no boundaries, run out and grab this book ASAP you will not be disappointed. Siobhan has created a lusciously sexy slow burn romance that will leave you breathless. Kyler and Sam are utter taboo perfection, they are sexual tension wrapped in angst surrounded by family drama/secrets. This is book 1 in the Kennedy Series, this series will follow all the brother’s in the family. 

“Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny. You shouldn’t want what you can’t have.”

The story starts out in Ireland with Sam, tragically her parents perish in a car accident leaving her alone. Her uncle from the US is contacted to be her guardian and he comes and brings her home to America. Sam is then thrust into a lavish lifestyle she is not used to and 7 deliciously handsome cousin’s that she never knew about. In comes Kyler, he is a fantastically broody Alpha male who exudes confidence and wears is sex appeal like a second skin. Their connection is immediate even though they both try and deny it. Their interactions are pure fire, they have serious melt your Kindle chemistry that they cannot deny or look away from. Every time they have any sort of contact you can feel the heat coming off the pages. 

“His body exudes warmth like a weapon. It crashes into me, almost knocking me off my feet. 

Sam is a spectacular character. She’s gone through so many things in her life, but each event has made her stronger. She is stunning but doesn’t realize the effect she has on those around her. She tries her best to steer clear of Kyler and his whiplash inducing mood swings, but it’s futile, they are meant to be. They help each other heal from the different tragedies that have fallen them. You get to watch as their flame burns brighter and stronger as the story progresses. You see the purity in the love they have for each other. And as situations occur and obstacles are thrown at them you can see the bond between them strengthen. 

“I’m crazy about you, Faye. You consume my every waking thought. My unconscious ones, too. You have stolen a piece of my heart, and I like feeling you there.”

I devoured this book in one sitting, I read all through the night to see how it would end. As it turns out, it ends in the mother of all angsty cliffhangers that left me frantically turning the pages making sure I didn’t miss anything. Just kidding I didn’t read this in paperback form but the speed with which I swiped my Kindle was impressive. Everything about this story spoke to me. I loved all the character’s and the story line had me completely enthralled. This book is filled to the brim with family drama that would put any soap opera to shame. You physically will not be able to put this down until your done. Be prepared for an inferno invoking slow burn romance that will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more.  Continue Reading

#Excerpt “The Guy on the Right” by Kate Stewart

Contemporary Romance/Romantic Dramedy
Stand Alone
Designer: Q Design

Blurb:
Strike One-My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.

Not cool, Mom.

I‘ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.

Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself.
There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.

Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well.
And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.

That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.

Everything is perfect.

That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.

I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.

I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.

Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win.

#Review “Forever Wanted” Dee Palmer

Image may contain: 3 people, text

Title: Forever Wanted – Part Two
Series: Wanted Series
Author: Dee Palmer
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date: August 7, 2019

Cover Design: Concierge Literary Promotions


Tricia’s Musings…
4 crowns

Max is a nomad, a young woman who enjoys nothing more than hitching up her camper van and, with her faithful companion, a giant of a dog called Clifford, (who was an absolute darling), travelling the country working on farms wherever she’s needed. She’s a free spirit, sassy and confident, never wanting or needing to put down roots, and I really liked her. Her first introduction to Tug and Toxic is an unconventional one and they certainly get to see more of her than they were expecting! The attraction between the three of them is quite apparent from the beginning but a past tragedy has Max unwilling to risk her heart again. She’s just after a good time, not a long time, whereas Tug and Toxic are ready for something more meaningful and permanent. Max has a pretty fertile imagination and a lot of the steamy times in the beginning are relayed by way of very vivid dreams. I’ve got to say, this does not make those scenes any less scorching believe you me but I would’ve liked to have seen more of a courtship between these three. Nevertheless, I did really enjoy the naughty, flirty banter and the time they spent in each other’s company.

However, it’s all fun and games until a deadly situation arises and everyone gets a big reality check. I loved it when all four Seals came together as a team, and I was holding my breath, by no means certain that they would be in time to prevent a complete disaster occurring. The change of pace gave me goosebumps and a particularly devastating moment had me in floods of tears and reaching for the tissues. I loved the drama and apprehension in this part of the story, the uncertainty that when the dust settled, would any of them emerge unscathed.

Forever Wanted part two is mainly Tug and Toxic’s story, but there’s lots going on here. As the final book in this series, it does tie up various loose ends with previous characters too, including Pink and Buttercup from Forever Wanted part one, who I absolutely loved. Overall, a fitting ending to this enjoyable series.

#Review “Conor Thames” by R.J. Lewis

Conor Thames

(Blackwater Boys Book 1)


Sarah’s Musings…

5 crowns

I really like this author’s unique style of writing. Her books contain no frilly language, no over description, they’re gritty, character driven stories featuring bad men from the wrong side of the tracks. Men with questionable morals who do what they need to do in order to maintain their own codes of conduct.

Conor Thames is one such man. He has a violence inside him that he finds hard to control and he has no problem with using brute force to exact his own form of justice on those who have wronged him or his family. I was extremely frustrated with his choices at times and he’s not an easy character to like, but despite myself I did find myself liking him and caring about what would happen to him. Cocky but charming in an unsophisticated way, he’s rather damaged and seems to have accepted his fate will be to live his life mostly from inside a jail cell. He is loyal and surprisingly self sacrificing, never regretting his choices until he meets Charlotte.

We don’t get a great deal of background on Charlotte in relation to her past history but my heart went out to her for the life she’s forced to live. With a less than stellar start to their relationship, Conor nevertheless treats Charlotte like a queen. I loved them together, I loved the way their chemistry was both hot and sweet and I hoped that together they would each find what had been missing from their lives.

This book is an unconventional romance, with an unconventional ending. Not sure I’d call it a cliffy exactly but there’s definitely more to Conor and Charlotte’s story to come. If you need trigger warnings and sweet romance, then this is not the book for you. However, if, like me, you can deal with heartache and ignore certain character faults when it comes to fiction then I urge you to give this book a read. This is just the start of the journey. There’s a dark side to all the Blackwater Boys and I can’t wait to explore it.

Discretion high res cover.jpg

Synopsis:

The Riviera means indulgence—if you’ve got money. For Sadie Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck student, the Riviera means dingy hostels and back streets.

Pulled into Olivier’s orbit of wealth, glamour, and excess, Sadie discovers that the Dumont dynasty comes with a legacy of wicked secrets. And Olivier’s secrets may be the most damning of all…

#Review “Feast of Sparks” by Sierra Simone

FEAST OF SPARKS (Thornchapel #2) by Sierra Simone
Release Date: August 1st
Cover Designer: Hang Le
Photographer: Regina Wamba


Sarah’s Musings…

4.5 BORN OF THORNS CROWNS

Wow! I just finished and my word. My head is still reeling, my mind is processing it all. What I can say for sure is that is HOT, everything erotica should be. It is filled with beautiful prose, as all of Sierra Simone’s stories are. It is unique and complex and an interesting swirl of love and romance, religion and mythology, mystery and bdsm. It is uniquely Sierra Simone.

Feast of Sparks focuses more on St. Sebastian. We get more of his back story and his relationship with Auden. We know from book one that their relationship is tenuous , but here we get the why. We see Saint’s character evolve just as his relationship with Auden and Poe. We see the group change and evolve as well, coming into new roles, finding out more about this chapel that seems to have ensnared them.

This book is intriguing on so many levels, and not just because of the steamy, erotic scenes between the group, couples, and trios. It is because of the mythical and religious aspect of the land. Just like the characters, Sierra’s words wrap us up in her world. We are invested in the mystery, we want to find the secrets with them. We want to understand what happened in the past and what that means for all of them in the present. I’m loving the evolution of Auden, the look into his relationship with Saint. The dichotomy of sweet and rough and the hedonistic and religious. With each ritual, the change to the group grows more significant and after the end of this one, I have no clue where we go from here.

As with most Sierra Simone books, there is an interesting connection between God and physical intimacy. Some people perceive polyamorous relationships or even kink to be ungodly, but Sierra writes in such a way that you see these ideologies as being woven together, one cannot be without the other. Just like the physical aspect, there is a great deal of historical details, setting, and connection between myths and the evolution of religion. This I found to be just as enthralling as the romance itself.

This book is heavy. Heavy in details, heavy in history, heavy in kink and desire. It is unlike anything I have read before, and I’m not sure I will ever read again. But what I do know is that Sierra Simone continues to push my boundaries, making me examine my own ideas of sexuality and desires and that evolution of man and our relationship with the land and God isn’t as clear and set inside the lines as we might like to believe. Like her story, she writes outside the lines of erotica, and for this reason, she will always be a must read.

Aundi’s Musings…

5 Feasts of CROWNS

This book should come with a warning: May cause spontaneous pregnancy. This book is incendiary and will literally burn you from the inside out. I had to take several breaks while reading this to get myself together. Sierra is a master at erotica her prose cannot be matched. I loved every minute of this book and cannot wait for the next installment. 

“If I could rearrange the world for you, I would,” he says. “I’d rearrange everything.” 

This story bounces around between the past and the present. It brings to light more of Auden and Saint’s past and helps answer many of the questions from the first story. But with every question that seemed to be answered more were unearthed. The relationship between Auden and Saint is slowly stripped layer by layer, I loved watching Auden and Saints story seeing how they fell in love and the paths that they took. Sierra takes you on a hedonistic journey that will take you to the brink.

“Keep me any way you want, I want to tell him. Just so long as you keep me close.”

This world that Sierra has created is utterly addicting. Each of these characters and their complexity keeps you enthralled and gasping for more. The depths with which Sierra has taken this story is beyond anything you can imagine and takes a hold of you from the first page and refuses to let go. The cliff hanger on this book literally left my mouth agape. I furiously went back and forth on the last few pages hoping I missed something and there was more. Alas, there is not, and it is a whopper of a hanger, so be prepared to be in a massive book hangover until we get A Harvest of Sighs. This book should not be missed. Read it you will not be disappointed. 

“I want more than lasting. I want endless. I want forever. And I’m going to earn it, no matter what you ask of me.”

Release Date: August 20th


Blurb:

What happens when a dare goes too far?

Maddox Coulter. Reckless bad boy. Infamous playboy. My nemesis. And now my best friend.

I know he’ll never leave me hanging. He knows I’ll never refuse a dare. Everywhere we go we turn heads, but it’s not like that.

Until it is.

For one of us, anyway.

I’ve always known he would be my downfall. But I trusted him to catch me.

He proved me wrong.

Maddox has gone too far, and I don’t know if I want to rein him in or push us further into dangerous territory.

He tells me those three little words that I crave. Three little words I want from no one else.

I dare you.

Except this time, it’s no simple dare. This could burn us to the ground.

“I dare you to fuck him.”

#Review “I Promise You” by Shantel Tessier

Title: I Promise You

Series: Dare #2

Author: Shantel Tessier

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: April 26, 2019


Aundi’s Musings…

5 Promise CROWNS

I was completely consumed by both I Dare You and I Promise You. Shantel created an amazing bully Romance that you will not be able to put down. This is book two in the Series. You must read I Dare You before jumping into this story. This story takes place immediately after book one. 

“I can be your fucking god-merciful. Or I can be the fucking devil-ruthless.” 

Cole Reynolds owns every part of me. He is the epitome of the Alpha Bully. You see a completely different side to him from book one. In this book he shows you how much Austin means to him and the lengths he will go for the ones he loves. He is still just as savage even though you get a different side. He will not hesitate to end you and show you what happens if you go against him. I love his savagery everything he does has a purpose and he always steps ahead of those around him. 

“See, I told you love equals madness. Because she’s just as mad as I am.” 

You don’t get to see as much of the badassery from Austin as you did in book one for reason’s you’ll know if you read the first book. But it doesn’t diminish her at all. Shantel wrote her character with such strength that it comes through no matter what. She is a complete badass that has no qualms going against the boys. Austin will always be one of my favorite heroines she stands toe to toe with the GWS and doesn’t back down. 

“Every love story demands a sacrifice.”

This book was essential in this series. It opens up more of the story and takes it in a direction you could not see coming. I love that it was in multiple POV’s and flowed between them seamlessly. Shantel has created a complex world that you have no idea what is going to happen at any given time. This series will keep you on the edge of your seat just waiting for the next moment. Be prepared for one wild ride that is sure to leave you wanting more. Continue Reading

Coming Up Roses
Bennet Brothers #1
Staci Hart


Everyone hates parts of their job.

Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.

But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.

Except for Luke Bennet.

The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. 

When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. 

Almost.

He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.

Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.

#NewRelease “Feast of Sparks” by Sierra Simone

FEAST OF SPARKS (Thornchapel #2) by Sierra Simone
Release Date: August 1st
Cover Designer: Hang Le
Photographer: Regina Wamba


Blurb:
I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

And so do I.

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.

And darkness.

#Review “The Guy on the Right” by Kate Stewart

We’re celebrating the release of The Guy on the Right by Kate Stewart!

Fall in love with Theo and Laney today!

Contemporary Romance/Romantic Dramedy
Stand Alone
Designer: Q Design


Tricia’s Musings…
5 #livingmyrealestlife crowns

I loved it, I did! I absolutely loved this book. It’s fun, laugh out loud funny, full of emotion and so much more than the blurb would suggest. Clever, intelligent humor, that flows naturally without trying too hard or wandering into slapstick territory, is my favorite and Ms Stewart captured me here with her wonderful witty banter and hugely engaging characters. The situations they found themselves in, their thoughts and internal dialogue had me in stitches.

Theo is referred to as the underdog but I didn’t particularly get those vibes from him. He may not be the overly muscled jock, the one you notice first, but he doesn’t totally lack confidence, except perhaps when it comes to his love life. He recognises his own strengths and weaknesses and is happy to stay within the boundaries of his expertise, well for the most part! He may be a little nerdy and self deprecating, but he’s hugely talented. Although not your typical hero, as the story progresses he very definitely becomes worthy of the title of sexy book boyfriend. For me, there’s something inherently attractive about a man with musical abilities and Theo has those skills in abundance.

I loved the way that Theo and Laney became inseparable, their relationship growing so that they became the best of friends. There was a certain spark between them but it took a while for them to acknowledge and act on it. I guess you could call it a slow burn, but not frustratingly so. I was hugely invested in their friendship and for me the way it went from that to something more was perfect, seamless, real and relatable. Laney is amazing. Smart, sassy, loyal and often impulsive, she’s full of life and fiercely independent. She’s wonderfully quirky and I want her to exist in real life and not just between the pages of a book, so that I can make her my best friend.

There’s an amazing cast of supporting characters too, each with their own fantastic personalities. It was, however, Theo and Laney who stood front and centre and I adored everything about them. Their ups and downs, their willingness to show their vulnerability to each other, and ultimately their love born from that deep seated friendship.

I’m blown away by the versatility of this author when it comes to her writing. From the intensity, anguish and drama that is Method, to the fun, humor and heart of The Guy, Ms Stewart shows us that she is wonderfully multi talented and has firmly cemented herself as one of my favorite authors.

#NewRelease “Resist” by K. Bromberg

Title: Resist
Author: K. Bromberg
Release Date: July 30, 2019
Publisher: Montlake Romance


Tricia’s Musings…
3.5 looking for the sunset crowns

The beginning of Resist had me in two minds about whether or not I was going to fully connect with this book. A good proportion of the story is a power play between our leading characters and their stubbornness and back and forth drove me mad at times. It’s a doozy of an enemies to lovers story with Ryker so arrogant and much more of an alphahole than I was anticipating. Vaughn was at times a worthy advisory who didn’t let him get his own way without a fight, until she was left with little or no choice but to acquiesce. A good dose of blackmail will do that!

I really disliked Ryker at the beginning and, for character development purposes, I’m not sure we’re supposed to love him, at least not yet. He’s a commitment phobe and has a very jaded view of marriage and relationships. I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe because of his parents’ unsuccessful marriage, or the one woman he fell for who wasn’t who he thought she was, but whatever it was he now, (in my opinion), seemed to be getting even in some way by only choosing to represent the husbands in their divorce proceedings and not their wives. However, I did began to warm to Ryker as the story progressed and I guess this was due to his change of attitude and his feelings for Vaughn making him want to become a better man. Whilst I appreciated this, it did seem rather an abrupt turn around, but, nevertheless, before I knew it he was working his way into my affections too.

Vaughn was the saving grace for me. Even though some of her actions had me wanting to give her a shake, I found her an interesting and empathetic character. She’s compassionate, strong and driven, working very hard to achieve her goals and create a different life for herself. That life, her past and present, and especially her interactions with her young niece, are described in such detail that I found myself tearing up on occasions. I loved the chemistry between her and Ryker and their surprise as their growing feelings. Falling for each other had not been in the cards for these two.

All in all Resist was a tense read which left me a little confused as to my feelings about it. The writing style is good but I found the story dragged somewhat in parts. The last 25% is where it speeded up for me and grabbed my attention. One heck of a cliffhanger ending has got me very excited and ensured that I am now invested in the outcome of Ryker and Vaughn’s story.

Everyone bows down to me.

Except her.

The moment I saw Sarah, I knew she’d be trouble.

She’s fiery and cutthroat, wrapped up in a lickable package.

But there are dark secrets hiding behind those gorgeous blue eyes.

And I plan to know them all because she’ll have to make a deal with the devil to solve her problems.

Too bad the devil always takes your soul.

And I’ll be keeping it—

Because Sarah London is mine.

#NewRelease “Drummer Girl” by Ginger Scott

We’re celebrating the release of DRUMMER GIRL by Ginger Scott!

One-click your copy on all platforms today!

Drummer Girl by Ginger Scott
A mature YA/New Adult contemporary rock star romance
Release day: July 30, 2019

Synopsis:

Arizona Wakefield was a beat without a melody. Living a half-breathing life in a half-finished neighborhood with parents who always wore half-hearted smiles, the high school senior only had one thing that let her color outside her family’s perfectly drawn lines—her drums.

Jesse Barringer was a song without a chorus. The son of a washed-up rock star who’s also one hell of a deadbeat dad, he was given two things from his father—musical genius and a genetic link to the bipolar disorder that drives him mad.

One night in a garage at the end of a cul-de-sac in the middle of a bankrupt California neighborhood, Jesse’s melody found Arizona’s rhythm. An angry boy with storm-colored eyes found a blonde angel in Doc Martens with missing lines in her own story. Where her rhythm stopped, his words took over, and together, they wrote one hell of a story.

** Drummer Girl is a mature YA/New Adult romance that touches on mental health, drug abuse and includes mature sexual situations.

#NewRelease “The Guy on the Right” by Kate Stewart

We’re celebrating the release of The Guy on the Right by Kate Stewart!

Fall in love with Theo and Laney today!

Contemporary Romance/Romantic Dramedy
Stand Alone
Designer: Q Design

Blurb:
Strike One-My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.

Not cool, Mom.

I‘ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.

Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself.
There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.

Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well.
And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.

That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.

Everything is perfect.

That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.

I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.

I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.

Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win.

Sarah’s Musings…
Kate Stewart is a chameleon when it comes to books. She writes high drama, romcom, angst, and every single one is so amazing. I love to go back to the trope that started my reader/author affair with her.
