Zeb Evans doesn’t do messy.

The product of a disorganised and chaotic childhood, Zeb likes order and control, and as the boss of his own employment agency he can give that to himself. Life runs along strict lines and he never mixes business with pleasure. Everything in his life lives in neat, alphabetized boxes. Until Jesse.

Jesse Reed is Zeb’s complete opposite. He’s chaos personified. A whirling cyclone of disorder. He’s also charming and funny and a very unwanted distraction.

Which is why it comes as a complete surprise to Zeb to find himself asking Jesse to pose as his boyfriend for a few days in the country at a wedding.

Zeb doesn’t do impulsive, but as the time away progresses, he finds himself increasingly drawn to the merry and irreverent Jesse. But can he bring himself to break the hard-won lessons he’s learnt in life? And even if he can, how could Jesse be attracted to him anyway? He’s so much older than Jesse, not to mention being his boss.

From the bestselling author of the Mixed Messages and Finding Home series comes a warm and funny romance about one man’s fight for control and another man’s determination to circumvent it.

This is the first book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Welcome to their kingdom… 

I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again. 
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.

And forced to face Jace Covington. 
My first friend. First crush. First kiss. 
The one I left behind.

Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.

This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell. 
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.

They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.

If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder. 
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.

WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.
This series is recommended for mature readers due to graphic language and sexual content.

Wow, what a ride… I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I first read the blurb. What can I say… I am all for a good “bully” YA story. They are like cupcakes to me… I want to gobble them all up.

I knew even before opening this one, that I was in for an emotional rollercoaster and a world of angst. Of course, I was right…as ever…and I was alternating laughing, crying, swooning and cursing all throughout the story. I love it when a book can me feel so many different emotions !!

If you’re like me and you have a weakness for redeemable assholes…then you have hit the jackpot with Jace and Cole. I am still not sure, which of them I like most…they are both so bad 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Not to mention their good pall Oakley, he was his own brand of awesome

Now, this is Jace’s story….or I should say, Dylan and Jace’s story. Yes, this story did remind me of “Bully” by Penelope Douglas, which is one of my all-time favorite books. That said…it was also very different

Dylan and Jace used to be the best of friends 4 years ago…but tragedy strikes in a big and awful way and pretty much everything changes after that. Dylan’s family takes her away and she doesn’t set food into her hometown until 4 years later. 

Even though her life has turned to shit in a major way, she is still looking forward to seeing her old best friend again. He is the only thing in her life right now she is looking forward too.

But when she finally comes face to face with him and she sees nothing but hate staring back at her…she isn’t sure what the hell is going on. That look of hate is just the beginning though and Dylan can’t stop wondering what happened to the boy she loved…and still loves… But she will surely find out. 

Now I absolutely enjoyed reading this book, even though it gave me a bald spot from pulling my hair. There were times when I got a little bit annoyed with Dylan and she kept giving Jace the benefit of the doubt. He was more than cruel to her but she just couldn’t stop her feelings for him.

I should hate you gif - Google zoeken

I had to remind myself that she was just 17/18 years old. And yes…the heart wants what it wants, but self-respect and self-worth are also very important I think. But like I said…I am (unfortunately) not 18 anymore…and I haven’t been for a long timefcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

I really had an awesome time reading this book. I am part zombie today because of it. Once I started I had to finish it…and I am glad I did. Now I really want Cole’s story, because I just feel like he is gonna be my favorite out of all…

“He needs to guard her body, she wants him to do other things with it.”

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series… 

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family. 

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard. 

Enter Mo Morrison. 

Enormous. Scary. 

Quiet. 

Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly. 

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it. 

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die. 

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters. 

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man. 

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl. 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.*

I am a huge (HUGE) fan of the “Dream Man” series and the “Rock Chick” series. I have read and loved every single book. And so when I found out that Lottie was finally gonna get her happily ever after…and with one of Hawk’s commando’s too…I was tickled pink !!

tickled pink gif - Google zoeken

I also found out that a “Kristen Ashley Novella” is just as long as most of the novels I normally read. There was nothing “short” about this story. Though, I can always so with some more …especially when it comes to the “Rock Chicks”.

For those of you who don’t know Lottie, (have you been living under a rock??) she is Jet’s (Rock Chock Resue) sister. She works as a stripper/dancer at Smithies and seeing all the Rock Chicks getting paired off, has left her kind of lonely.

I want love gif - Google zoeken

That’s not the worst of her problems though, because it seems she’s got the attention of a creepy stalker. Smithie, being the awesome boss that he is, is not taking any chances and since asking the “Hot Bunch” for help is out of the question….Commando’s it is 😛

As one of Hawk’s commando’s,  Mo is assigned as Lottie’s 24/7 shadow until they can catch this creepy creeper. 

commando gif - Google zoeken

There is just one little problem…The chemistry between these two is through the roof. The UST could be cut with a knife !!! But MO is insisting on staying professional. He can’t protect her if he get’s distracted.

So there is only one thing they can do. Make sure they find this creep as soon as possible…before they both combust !!

I absolutely loved this (not so) short story. It really gave me old KA vibes. It also made me go back and do a “Rock Chick” and “Dream Man” re-read….again. 

I love how Lottie finally got her own Dream man…she really deserved it !!! 

I can’t wait for the new spin-off series…hopefully time flies 😉

Everybody thinks Mackey Sanders’s Outbreak Monkey is the last coming of Rock ’n’ Roll Jesus, but Cheever Sanders can’t wait to make a name for himself where nobody expects him to fill his famous brothers’ shoes. He’s tired of living in their shadow.

Blake Manning has been one of Outbreak Monkey’s lead guitarists for ten years. He got this gig on luck and love, not talent. So hearing that Cheever is blowing through Outbreak Monkey’s hard-earned money in an epic stretch of partying pisses him off.

Blake shows up at Cheever’s nonstop orgy to enforce some rules, but instead of a jaded punk, he finds a lost boy as talented at painting as Mackey is at song-making, and terrified to let anybody see the real him. Childhood abuse and a suicide attempt left Cheever on the edge of survival—a place Blake knows all too well.

Both men have to make peace with being second banana in the public eye. Can they find the magic of coming absolute first with each other?

Beneath the Stain, by Amy Lane is one of my all-time favorite MM books. It made me laugh, it made me cry (a lot) and it made me swoon. It also had the perfect amount of angst for me. So it was in one word wonderful. Finding out that Cheever was getting his own book….was even more wonderful, because it meant I was getting a chance at revisiting all my favorite characters. 

hell yeah gif - Google zoeken

Remember that spoiled little shit in Beneath the Stain ?? Well, he is all grown up now and he isn’t as spoiled as everyone thinks he is. Sure he has a whole bunch of stuff his brothers never had, but that doesn’t mean he is happy. He might not have financial problems but he is very much alone.

Growing up without all his brothers around to protect him, like they used to, isn’t easy. And having a famous brother who came out as being gay isn’t easy either….it gives people certain ideas…

oh no gif - Google zoeken

Cheever never thought being gay was a problem…I mean he grew up around Grant and Mackey, and he has seen more things than they know. It isn’t until other people make problems, that Cheever realizes that being gay might not be okay…and if that is the case…does that mean that there is something wrong with him…

But with Mackey coming out first and things going to shit for him at school… He keeps falling deeper and deeper into the rabbit-hole. So Cheever just locks everything inside… where it can’t affect anyone else.

hurt inside gif - Google zoeken

And when he gets the chance to leave his home town…he takes it in a flash.

Maybe he can be an awesome artist…make something of himself. Something that has nothing to do with any of his brothers…Something just him.

For nine long years, Cheever has kept his distance from his brothers. But when the future he was hoping for falls to pieces, so does he…in a spectacular and tragic way. Thankfully Blake is right there to pick up all his pieces and glue them back together again. 

But Blake had plenty of issues of his own…so the question is. How will two such screwed up people make this work? The answer, however, is quite simple… LOVE people !!!

I absolutely loved Cheever’s story, though I have to say that it had a ton of similarities with Beneath The Stain. Not that I minded since it is one of my favorites

I really enjoyed every single book, though some I loved more than others, which goes for the characters as well. Now Summer, she has always been a favorite of mine. Just hanging out in the back, not causing any ruckus and trying to be sweet and caring with everyone. Her and her boyfriend Nick were doing awesome, and it seemed like they had everything planned out for the future…

That is until everything falls apart and when I say everything…I do mean everything. My heart broke for poor Summer… They say all bad shit comes in threes and in this case they were right…damn !!

Genre: Fantasy Romance

LIPS (1) Blurb

Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.

Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.

Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.

As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.

Oh, how I love this author and anything she writes !! I am a huge fan of shifters, vampires, and demons and so you can imagine my giddiness the day I discovered Suzanne Wright’s books. I have been a stalker fan, ever since.

Writing this review is a bit double for me. This is the 8th and last book in the “Phoenix Pack” series after all and I am not bored yet….not by a long shot. No matter how much I have wanted to read “Dominic’s book (ever since book 1) I am a bit sad now that I am done… I am not ready to say goodbye !! These people are all like family now …if my family consisted of big bad broody alpha wolves that is 😛

Thankfully, Suzanne has stated at the end of this book, that we will be seeing all our favorites again. They will have cameos in the new and upcoming series `Olympus Pride`. And I also have “Shard of Frost” to look forward too and new books in the “Dark in You” series. So no time to be sad really !!

As I have said, I have been a bit in love with Dominic since meeting him in “Feral Sins”. I just knew that this incredible flirt would find an even more incredible mate 😉 But….not a true mate. I liked that…a lot. We have had all sorts of mates in this series and most of them were “true” ones, but I am thankful that Dominic’s story was different. They really made the decision to be together, without fate or whatever deciding for them. I mean Mila’s true mate was right under her nose and she could have fought for him if she wanted to…but she didn’t.

She didn’t want to be with someone who was in love with another, not even if they were technically “made for each other”. She chose for herself and her choice was Dominic…

This one was definitely another favorite of mine and I can’t wait to read Elliot’s story in Shard of Frost which is gonna be out about the same time this book is !!!

I highly recommend this series and all the others by this author !!

The Fischers are the only family Brennan has ever known, and when they adopt him, he has no plans on doing anything to jeopardize that. Even if it means pretending Josh Daly doesn’t make his heart pound every time their eyes meet. 

The tension eases once Josh heads off to a Christian University on a baseball scholarship. Brennan stays put in Elm Grove to work at his family’s drive-in movie theater and take classes at the local community college. 

But when Josh comes home for summer break, the feeling not only returns, it transforms into a loud and commanding drumbeat he struggles to tune out. 

Finally admitting who he is feels overwhelming. There’s a reason Brennan remains a virgin and when he realizes Josh might be one too, the chemistry between them becomes impossible to ignore. Except acting on his attraction throws everything Josh has been raised to believe out the window. 

Plagued by fear and self-doubt, they finally surrender, placing their trust in each other and their undeniable connection. But facing the world together takes the sort of faith that will either strengthen their bond…or shatter its very foundation.

I have been on a real YA streak lately and when I read the blurb for this one, I know I had to add it to my list. I sounded absolutely perfect to me and guess what ?? It really was !! I absolutely loved this sweet, but also a bit angsty, slow burn.

Those of you who are not a fan of insta love are definitely gonna love this one, because these two guys really take their sweet time… I kept screaming at them to kiss !!

In the back of their heads, Brennan and Josh have always known there was something more between the two of them than friendship.  ever since they spend some time together at camp. But with both of them being so young still and Brennan just being adopted into his new family, not to mention Josh’s extremely religious parents, neither of them really gave it a second thought. Until now that is…

cuteness...

Both of them are adults now and neither of them has ever dated a girl….and they are finally starting to fully realize why. But realizing why doesn’t make things any easier for them. Brennan is afraid his adoptive family won’t want him anymore and Josh has been lectured enough about homosexuality enough to know his family will never accept him being gay

But the heart wants what it wants and these boys definitely want each other !!

These two were so adorable together. Seeing them make a connection and fall in love….discovering each other in all ways. It took them a while, but that first kiss was definitely worth the wait. So sweet and so hot 😉 

 But as they grew closer and more and more in love, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop…because it always does.

It did of course but it wasn’t all as bad as I thought it would be. I know this author can do really angsty when she wants to, but this book was pretty mild…at least I feel that way. Then again, I am a big angst-lover…

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees… 

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape. 

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world. 

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé. 

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. 

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight

When I started this book I couldn’t believe I was reading about 17 and 18-year-olds. The Rydeville High school is ruled by the Elite, which consists of Abby and her twin Drew, Trent, and Charlie. They are considered the rich and powerful. Now Abby may be part of the Elite, but she doesn’t have much say. She is expected to listen and act accordingly. Most of the Elite, are already arranged to be married. And Trent, the dude Abby is supposed to marry, he really tops the asshole cake !!

Not wanting to give any of herself to her “fiancee”, she decides to give her innocence to a stranger…a savior of sorts. Someone she chose for herself…a moment she will always hold dear. There is not much else she can do though…she is stuck in the life she was born in. 

She doesn’t know that everything she knows is about to change…and she will come face to face with her savior again… Will he still be her savior though.

I love high school settings, and when they have bullies in them…even better !! I was a bit confused when I started this one though. For a minute I thought they were all much older, but then I figured they were just that screwed up. I can’t imagine my parents just giving me away in marriage because of family business and status… 

As much as Abby was stuck, she still tried to be as strong as she could be. I really admired her and I can’t wait to see what is gonna happen next. 

Fair warning….we’ve got another cliffy right here !!!

After I caught my boyfriend cheating, I tried to be mature about it with an amicable split. But he took his retaliation too far, and I have officially had enough. No more Miss Nice Haven.

No one is allowed to lie to me, betray, embarrass, and devastate me, fill me with self-doubt, or put my future at risk, and expect to get away with it. He is going to feel my wrath.

Enter Wick Webster, his archenemy.

Nothing would provoke my ex more than to see me moving on with the one guy he hates most, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

The only hitch in my brilliant scheme is Wick himself. He’s just gotta be all love-not-war and peace-is-the-only-way. He’s more concerned about helping me heal than seeking my sweet revenge.And what the hell is it about his soothihg presence and yummy looks that calls to me until I forget how much pain I’m in? He’s making it awfully hard to use and abuse him for my malicious means. The damn guy is making me fall for him.

I loved Sarah and Brandt, they were awesome and I can honestly say that Haven definitely inherited their wonderful traits. She sure as hell is just as strong…well, Sarah might be a tad bit stronger 😛 

But that is nothing compared to Wick’s traits. OMG, I loved that man the moment I set my eyes on him (in my mind..you should see him…he is so HOT). He was so deliciously funny, we should all be blessed with a man like that.

Now this book is long…but it didn’t feel long to me. Maybe that’s because I was so freaking happy to be back into the world of some of my favorite characters again. I wasn’t bored for a second. I just got pulled into the story from the very first page and there was nothing I could do but finish it. I like my books to be a bit on the longer side. That way I feel like I actually have a chance, to get to know the characters. There is also something about this author’s writing style that really does it for me.

I can only hope that there will be more books like this to follow. I would love for all the offspring to get their own book… 

Now I think it’s re-read time again, because I really do miss my “Forbidden Men“.

“You guys are totally off your rockers. I am not having sex with anyone just to get back at Topher. To me, that’d be like drinking poison and expecting him to die from it.”
Bentley gasped, affronted, and pressed a hand to her chest. “Sex isn’t poison.”
I rolled my eyes because SHE hadn’t been cheated on recently.
“Seriously,” Teagan went on. “Sex can be good for you. It’s actually the number one reliever in vaginal atrophy.”
I blinked. “In…what?”
“Inflammation, dryness, and thinning of the vaginal walls.”
“Huh?” I furrowed my brow, wondering how I’d landed myself in a sex-education class.
“You must massage the tissue down there, exercise it regularly and get the blood flowing so it remains healthy and elastic. Otherwise, it’s going to dry out like an unused rubber band and crumble apart.” She balled her hand into a fist as if wadding up something. “Just a brittle piece of hopelessness.”
Ouch.
Why did I suddenly want to wince and protectively cover my hoo-ha with both of my hands? Seriously, I’d just found an old rubber band last week. It had dried up and fallen to pieces as soon as I had picked it up.
Lord, I didn’t want my vagina to crumble apart like that.
But then Bella—bless her soul—rolled her eyes and muttered, “Oh, whatever. She doesn’t need a man to get the blood flowing down there. My faithful BOB has kept me more satisfied and elasticized than any human douche ever could.”
Teagan merely shrugged. “It’s more fun with a real penis though. Just saying.”
“Wow,” Lucy murmured, shaking her head. “JB must have some kind of magical cock to make you talk this way because, before him, you were all like, eww, men are so overrated. Sex is gross. Keep it away from me.”
Lifting her chin, Teagan sniffed proudly and rubbed her swollen belly. “He does. It even sparkles in the sunlight.”
“Ack,” I cried, covering my ears with my hands. “It is so impossible to think of JB that way. He’s like a cousin to me, T.”
“You know, you don’t actually have to have sex with anyone,” Bentley spoke up, making me glance at her in confusion. “You just have to make Topher believe you did.”
“Or…” Bella countered. “As much of a showboat as Topher is, the best way to get back at him would be to just move on and be happy. I have a feeling him seeing you moving on without him might drive him crazier than anything.”

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

I have a confession to make… I have waited until the last moment to start reading this one. Reason being…a dreaded cliffhanger. I absolutely hate cliffhangers and normally I avoid them like the plague and wait until all the books are out to start reading. So…why did I sign up for this one ?? Well the answer is pretty simple… because Aly Martinez is one of my favorite authors and I knew I wanted …no needed to read this book !!

So here we are now and I have been left with the mother of all cliffhangers !!!

cliffhanger gif - Google zoeken

Thankfully this author seems to love her readers, because she is not making us wait too long, since the next book is already coming out next month…so fear not 😉 

I also knew going into this one, that I was probably gonna be hit with a truckload of angst…and sure enough…I was crying within a couple of pages !!

so many feelz gif - Google zoeken

Thankfully, I was also laughing my ass off within no time, so the balance was restored swiftly 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Now I can’t say too much about the story itself because that would be spoilering and everyone who is familiar with Aly Martinez’ work knows it would be a big shame to spoiler one of her books. So I am gonna keep this one very vague…sorry definitely not sorry 😉

not sorry at all gif - Google zoeken

As much as I hate cliffies, I am so glad I read this book. And I also have got to say…I didn’t even see the end coming. It really took me by surprise and I am still trying to figure out what the hell just happened !!

I don’t mind being left in the dark for a little while though…It was definitely worth it and next month will be here before we know it.

I highly recommend this book and everything else this author has written 😉

Excerpt:

Life had never been easy for me. Chaos had been following me like a dark cloud, looming and hovering, casting its shadow far and wide despite how bright the path in front of me should have appeared. After growing up the way I had, where happiness had been more of a privilege than a choice, I knew better than to believe that that moment would be anything other than fleeting.

And one second later, the universe proved me right.

I opened the door to see who had rung the bell—a cursory check revealed an empty hallway.

And that’s when I heard it: the sound that changed not only my entire life in the present, but my life for all future days to come.

At first, it was just a grunt, but as if that baby could feel my gaze, the minute my eyes made contact, it let out a sharp cry.

Confusion hit me like a lightning bolt, sending me back a step. I used the door frame for balance as I took in the yellow blanket with a hole only big enough to reveal a pale-pink face.

“What the fuck?” I breathed. Glancing around the hall, I waited for someone to jump out and start laughing. When no one spoke up to issue a punchline, I took a step closer and repeated, “What the fuck?”

I was utterly unable to process the absurdity in front of me.

Of course, I knew the facts.

It was a baby.

On my doorstep.

Alone.

But the why in that equation was glaringly absent.

“Uhhh,” Ian drawled, peering over my shoulder. “Why is there a kid at your door?”

“I have no idea,” I replied, staring down at the squirming and now-screaming bundle. “It was just there when I opened the door.”

Ian shoved me to the side so he could stand beside me. “You’re shitting me, right?”

“Does it look like I’m shitting you?”

He looked from me to the baby, then back again. “How did it get there?”

We were two incredibly smart men who had created a technology empire out of nothing. But, clearly, a baby was too big for either of us to wrap our minds around.

I swept an arm out and pointed to the kid. “I have no clue, but I’m assuming it didn’t catch a cab.”

A light of understanding hit his eyes. He moved first, stepping over the crying baby and hurrying down the hall, searching around the corner near the elevator before returning alone.

The party continued behind me, but even with the door open, the loud chatter was no match for the ear-piecing cries happening in that hallway.

Veronica suddenly appeared beside me, her body going solid as she stammered out. “Is that…a baby?”

“Back up,” I urged, throwing my arm out to block her path as though the infant were going to suddenly morph into a rabid animal. And let’s be honest, I knew nothing about babies. Anything was possible.

Ian dropped to his knees, scooping up the wailing child. Meanwhile, I stood there like a gawking idiot, paralyzed by a weight I didn’t yet understand.

“Call the pol—” He stopped abruptly and reached into the top of the child’s blanket. “Oh shit,” he whispered, his wide, panic-filled eyes flashing to mine.

“What?” I asked, stepping toward him to get a better look at the kid. Only it wasn’t that tiny baby cradled in his arms that made my heart stop and bile rise in my throat.

There, in my best friend’s hand, was a folded piece of notebook paper that had been tucked into the child’s blanket. From the looks of it, the paper was unremarkable in every sense of the word. Blue lines, white spaces, hanging remnants from where it had been haphazardly ripped from a spiral bound notebook. Even the crease was crooked. But it was my name scrawled on the outside in messy, black ink that made it the most remarkable paper in existence.

I snatched it from his hand and, with blood roaring in my ears, opened it.

Caven,

I’m sorry. I never meant for this to happen. This is our daughter Keira. I’ll love her forever. Take care of her the way I can’t.

Written with regret,

Hadley

The hall began to spin, my head feeling like every ounce of blood had been drained from my body. The thundering in my ears faded and the loud chatter of my guests, who were suddenly aware that something was happening at the door, roared to life.

And then the chaos finally found me all over again—the past playing out in my head like my life flashing before my eyes.

I sucked in a deep breath and looked at the baby in his arms. The blanket had fallen off its head just enough to reveal a patch of fine hairs, more orange than its mother’s red.

“Call the police,” I declared, turning on a toe and walking back into my apartment, leaving Ian standing in the hall with Hadley’s child.

Shoving through the crowd of concerned onlookers, I headed straight to the bottles of liquor lining the counter. I didn’t bother with ice or even a glass. I threw back that bottle of vodka, hoping like hell the burn of the alcohol could numb the panic coursing through my veins.

Through it all, that baby never stopped crying.22

Shifter and Vampire True Mates story. 

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep. 

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf. 

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army. 

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy. 

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG. 
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

It has been some time since I have read the first book in this series Prophesy which I enjoyed a lot. Thankfully as soon as I started reading this one, everything about the first book came back to me. I love when that happens. I also remembered how bad I wanted to read Alek and Belleron’s story…and let me tell you, I was not disappointed !!

so good gif - Google zoeken

This book starts exactly where the last when left us, and just so you know…it can NOT be read as a stand-alone. You won’t understand what the hell is happening, so if you want to read this series, start with the book 1 !! 

Last time we saw Alek and Bell, things were quite strained… with Alek pretty much throwing (read attacking) himself at Bell. 

Alek has always wanted a mate…to find someone to truly love him, and he can’t believe that fate has given him a chance in the form of Lord High vampire, Belleron Liatos. But how can he be the perfect “beloved” when he is in fact so broken inside… Broken into three separate pieces to be exact. How can he ever explain all that he is to his one true love…

And there is no way he will be able to hide/supress his inner being(s)

monster insde gif - Google zoeken

Bell was pretty surprised, finding out his “beloved” turned out to be a shifter with apparent control issues. What he is even more surprised about.. is what he sees lurking when he looks into the eyes of his love…and how much it’s pulling him in. 

I loved this series when I started it, but I love it even more now. It is exactly what I look for in a shifter/vampire story. It kept me at the edge of my seat while still making me laugh and swoon. I even cried a little tear!

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10219099127418233

If you love vampires and shifters as much as I do, then you should definitely give this one a try. I was a bit surprised with the medium steam-level because I am used to the very steamy “Nothing Special” series by A.E. Via. No worries though, there is still some very nice sexing going on !!

I myself can’t wait for the next book which I am sure (read hope) will be Mac’s.

I absolutely freaked when I found out about this “Top Secret” book….but in a good way of course 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

These authors are wonderful when they write their own stories (and I have read many of them), but when they put their minds together…they create absolute MAGIC. Case in point “Him” and “Us“. Two of my all time favorite books !!

So you can understand that I HAD to read this one. I just knew it was gonna be another favorite. Spoiler alert: it was !!

awesome gif - Google zoeken

This is a wonderful “enemies to lovers” kind of story, which is one of my favorite tropes. They are also quite the “opposites attract” kind, so that was an extra bonus, as was the exploratory gay sex 😉 Yummmmmmmy !!

Keaton is a rich jock, running for frat president Alpha Delt, because his dad wants him to. He has been in a relationship with the same girlfriend since high school, and he is quite the “people pleaser“. Hence him trying to find a guy, to take part in a threesome with him and his girl…because she asked for it as a birthday present.

Under the name of “Lobsterpants” he joins “Kinky“, a special kind of dating app, which is where he meets “SinnerThree“.

Luke is in the same frat as Keaton and he is also running for frat president. Just not for the same reasons. Luke is dirt poor, and knowing that the president of the frat gets free housing, is enough incentive for him. Even if most of his frat brothers hate him. 

Luke is also a regular on “Kinky” under the name “SinnerThree” where he likes to hook up with couples… they can be gay or straight.. Luke doesn’t care because he likes both 😉

And so he meets Lobsterpants and the fun begins 😛

It was wonderful to see these guys texting back and forth. I laughed my ass off. They were both great guys, though I have to say that Luke did annoy me a bit towards the end… Keaton…he is the man !!! I just loved him and his Lobster shorts !!!

The steam was HOT…I mean gay virgin here…but they were also really cute together !!!

gay thouching gif - Google zoeken

Now for those of you wondering…no, this isn’t a love triangle. The girlfriend does play a part but for me, she was pretty insignificant. I myself didn’t really like her but that was because of some choices she made. She plays no real part in the relationship that Keaton and Luke have. I know for some, it’s really important to know.

I had a great time reading this one and I will definitely be re-reading it again and again in the future.

I highly recommend and I hope we will get some more from these two amazing authors !!

Take is the fifth book in the amazing “Deliver” series. Now let me start this review, by saying that this book can and should not be read as a stand-alone. If you want to really enjoy this series, you should go back and start reading with Deliver #1, and slowly…or fast…work your way down to this awesome read. Trust me…you won’t be sorry.

This is definitely a dark romance series and each and every book has some major triggers… That also goes for this one. I am not gonna mention them all, but I did want to give you a little warning in case “dark” isn’t really your thing.  

Those of you who have already started this series, already know Kate from the previous books. She has been through hell and back and now she is still struggling to move on. Too bad that hell doesn’t seem to be finished with her just yet and decides to screw with her once again…using Tiago Badell, to do so. 

https://www.facebook.com/pamgodwinbooks/photos/a.469683773068519/2090357974334416/?type=3

I really don’t want to say anything that could possibly spoiler this book. It should be read blindly I think… So I am gonna keep my review short and simple. 

Tiago has definitely become one of my favorite anti-heroes, though he still has to take a little bit of a back seat to Van Quiso….then again…I don’t think anyone will ever be able to top him in my book !! That said… Tiago was all sorts of hot, darkbroody and disturbed. Just how I like my men 😛

Kate tries her very best to hate every part of his being…but it isn’t all that easy. Not everything is as black and white as she would like it to be. Could it be she is actually developing feelings for this monster…or is she suffering from a case of “Stockholm syndrome”. 

One smile, and he could be mistaken as human, A hot-as-fuck human with the capacity to shift and melt things inside her.

This story really pushes against some boundaries, it definitely pushed some of mine…but I gobbled it all up, like the good little girl that I am fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

Kate really is my kind of heroine. She was so strong, but she also excepted her weaknesses…she was no push-over, but she knew not to push beyond the limits. I admired the fact, that even with everything she has been trough…she still had the ability to look further…to see beyond the outside.

She saw a heart worthy enough to take

What he doesn’t anticipate is the prickly and gorgeous camp counselor who constantly comes to his rescue.

Travis spends a week every year at Camp Evermore, the camp his adoptive parents own. As a pro baseball player, his presence guarantees a full campground and excited campers. He has one rule: never, ever mess around with anyone at camp. His profession demands he stay in the closet. But one sweet and funny new dad is about to test all his resolve.

Sparks fly for Geo and Travis, and not because of the nightly campfire. Having been a foster kid himself, Travis is drawn to Geo’s sincerity and big heart and to his kids. The four of them just fit. But will this be a summer romance? Or can they find a way to be a family long after Family Camp is over?

The Daddy Dearest series will consist of stand-alone contemporary novels focusing on single gay dads who find hot romance. Expect laughs, sweet and sexy slow-burn romance, and lots of family feels!

I am a huge Eli Easton fan, and so I have read and loved plenty of her books, with Five Dares, being my favorite so far. Now I may be one of the few people who actually does enjoy reading about kids in my romance books. Most of the time the little brats are funny as hell and they are wonderful tension breakers 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659So yeah, saying I was excited about this one, is putting it mildly.

I can gladly say that I was not disappointed !! This book was awesome…as were the kids fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47 What made it even more fun for me was the fact that my son is named Jayden as well…and so I had no choice but to love him 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

Now this book is all sorts of cute and sweet….and lets not forget HOT.

I had the best of time reading it and I did most of it with a huge smile on my face.

Geo was really trying to be a great dad to his new foster kids and I admired the hell out of him for doing so. There was a small misunderstanding between Geo and Travis in the beginning but thankfully things got resolved pretty quickly. There is some angst in this one…be it small mostly revolving around Travis’ sexuality. 

I really needed something light and sweet after reading some very heavy books and this one definitely delivered. I can’t wait to see what’s next 😉

Highly recommended !!

Excerpt

Sixth inning. Geo was ready for the game to be over. It was fucking hot on the ball field, all open and exposed, the sun baking down. And he was also not sure how much more Travis-watching he could take—him with his silky burgundy gym shorts and a sweaty Camp Evermore green shirt stretched over those muscles. His long legs were tanned and well-defined from hours at the gym.

Those thighs could fucking crack walnuts. Dude.

Damn, but that was one fine-looking man. Geo knew he should lay off, though. Travis had made himself clear.

Only he hadn’t. At all. One minute, Travis seemed into him him. He sought out Geo’s company, like the way he kept coming by the cabin at night. And the next minute, he’d put distance between them, ignoring Geo or closing himself off behind a granite-like expression and those eye-hiding shades. And Travis had laid a clear line in the sand. Not at camp. Not gonna happen.

Yup. That was fine. Sure, Geo hadn’t been mutually attracted to a guy that hot in ages. Or ever, really. But Geo hadn’t come to camp to fool around. He had other priorities.

It did make him wonder though. Bridget had said Travis wasn’t out. A quick Google search last night had confirmed that. In fact, Geo had been shocked to discover there’d never been an out baseball player in the major leagues. Like, in the history of American baseball. Which was tragic. No wonder Travis was in the closet. It had to suck monkey balls living like that. Especially with all the women who threw themselves at him constantly. There were a dozen women on the sidelines right now that looked ready to have his babies. That had to be weird for a gay guy. Didn’t it?

Geo himself was always super uncomfortable when women came on to him. He felt compelled to blurt out “I’m gay!” in the first five minutes. It was just too weird otherwise.

Then again, Travis’s love life was none of Geo’s business. Maybe the guy was bisexual. Maybe he liked dating women just fine.

Jayden came up to bat. Geo focused on his son, clapping hard. “Come on, Jayden! You’ve got this!”

Jayden took a wide stance beside the plate, both hands gripping the bat, choked up a little. Travis had spent a few minutes with Jayden at the start of the game, showing him how to stand, and Jayden copied him exactly. The kid was a great mimic. He’d been nervous at first, tense and defensive. But by now he just looked focused. He stared, narrow-eyed, at Frank as Frank pitched an easy ball.

Geo loved that about this game, that everyone tried to give the kids easy wins, and no one took the competition seriously.

Jayden hit the ball hard. It flew through the air a short ways then plonked to the ground and skipped along fast. It was heading right down the center line, though a bit more towards third base and Travis’s side of the field.

“Go Jayden! Go!” Geo shouted. He went after the ball. In his peripheral vision, he saw Jayden round first base and keep running.

Travis was going after the ball too, dodging low. He scooped it up. He was going to throw it to third base, keep Jayden back on second. Geo couldn’t let that happen.

He dove in front of Travis, crowding him, holding an arm out to block Travis from throwing the ball.

Travis snorted, bemused. “What are you doing? You’re on my team.” He backed up, trying to get away from Geo.

“Blood before bros, man,” Geo said with fake seriousness. He kept up with Travis, step for step, grabbing Travis’s right arm in a firm grip so he couldn’t raise the ball.

“Stop it!” Travis laughed. “Dork. That’s not legal.”

“Don’t care.”

They took three steps back, like they were dancing. Geo held Travis’s right arm, staring him down. Travis met his gaze, a goofy smile on his lips. Back and back they stumbled. Suddenly, Travis got a sparkle in his eyes. He wrapped his left arm around Geo’s waist and picked him up, swinging him around so he ended up behind Travis.

Geo was still finding his feet as Travis drew back his arm and sent the ball sailing.

Right to home plate. But Jayden got there first. Umpire Cindy made the motion with her hands, safe.

Geo laughed and raised his arms in triumph. “Yeah, baby! Great job, Jayden! Home run, whoo!”

Then he realized everyone was staring at them. On the sidelines, there were a dozen cameras raised, filming.

Oh. Er. Hmm. Geo wiped his face, feeling sheepish.

That’s when a piercing scream rent the air.

After three years, Snow and Jude’s relationship is still passionate and strong. They’re getting ready for a romantic vacation at home when Jude receives a horrifying call no one wants to receive. His youngest brother was found barely clinging to life. While Jude’s family is rallying around Jordan, Jude is determined to find out what happened to him.

Snow and Jude follow the clues, investigating a side of Jordan’s life none of them knew about…and is far darker than any would have believed possible. They get pulled deeper into the seedy side of life, while echoes from a past Snow thought he walked away from return to offer an unexpected insight into the cause of Jordan’s injuries.

But someone else has noticed their involvement and is furious, putting them both in danger. The risk is high but so is Jude’s determination to find the truth—though the knowledge could very well fracture his heart.

I have been a huge fan of these two authors ever since I first read “Shiver“. There was no going back after that one, and Lucas, Andrei, Snow, Jude, Rowe, Noah, Ian, and Hollis have pretty much been like family since…well maybe “family” is not the right word, considering all the dirty thoughts I have about them… Acquaintances might be a better word.

I love all the men in this series…each and every one of them is special and amazing, (though everyone knows that I am gonna marry Hollis 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1 one day) but I think Snow and Jude are definitely the hottest couple. So getting another book about the two of them is a real treat.

It has been three years since these two found each other and, they have been going strong ever since. Things have finally settled down for everyone and after working non-stop, Snow and Jude are ready to have some vacation time..aka alone time together…

Too bad fate feels like screwing with them once again…

When Jude’s youngest brother ends up violated and beaten down in the hospital, Jude and Snow will go to extremes to find out what happened and punish those responsible. Thankfully they are not alone, which meant I got to see all my favorites again !!

I absolutely loved this one…I spend most of the time reading it on the edge of my seat. It deals with some heaviness but these wonderful authors know exactly when to lighten things up a bit, preventing it becoming too dark. And since this is Snow and Jude we are talking about, there is also some delicious steam

I highly recommend all the books in this series and I can’t wait for some more Rowe/Noah and Ian/Hollis (oh how I love Hollis 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1). Jocelynn and Rinda have already promised us their stories next 😉 

Now if you’ll excuse me…I have some Unbreakable re-reads to do 😛

Excerpt

Snow rushed through the emergency room with Jude. His heart was pounding so hard it was like he could feel it in his throat, threatening to choke off his airway. A sinister nagging voice in the back of his head kept repeating, Three years, three years, three years.

Roughly three years ago, he’d run into this same hospital to find one of his best friends on the floor, his entire world falling apart because his wife had been killed in what had appeared to be a car accident. And he hadn’t been there to operate on her. To save her life.

Melissa Ward had been light and laughter and happiness. She’d brought joy to all who knew her.

And Rowe Ward had been devastated to lose her. They all had been.

They’d nearly lost Rowe to his grief.

Now Snow was running through the hospital where he and Jude worked nearly every day. He was vaguely aware of familiar faces registering surprise and flashes of sadness as they passed by, but it didn’t matter. They stopped only long enough to find out that Jordan was in surgery and that Jude’s family was already in the surgical ICU waiting room.

“Snow,” Jude said in a low, shaky breath as they waited for the elevator to ascend to the correct floor. That broken sound gutted him.

He reached over and wrapped his hand around the back of Jude’s neck, pulling him tight against his taller frame. “We’ll figure this out,” he replied, forcing the words past the lump in his throat while telling himself that this was not going to be like Mel.

Jordan was a strong young man. Not even twenty-one yet. A good guy who loved to laugh. Definitely not the sort to seek out trouble. This had to be nothing more than him being in the wrong damn place at the wrong damn time. The doctors on call would be able to fix him up and get him safely on the mend.

But he couldn’t give Jude promises that he couldn’t keep or offer fake platitudes. Jude had worked as a paramedic for several years now. He’d been the paramedic first on the scene for Mel. He knew how quickly things could turn bad with nothing anyone could do to stop them.

“My brain won’t accept it. Not Jordan.”

“I know,” Snow said. “But he’s young and he’s strong. That works in his favor.”

The elevator doors parted, and they were quickly moving again to the large, quiet waiting room.
