5 Star Review – Big Shot by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde


Just when I think the writing combination of Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde can’t get any better….they set out to prove me wrong!  You should run, skip, hop, fly, skate….whatever your means of transportation, use it to get this book!  Wes and Natalie are two of the most electrifying characters I have read in months and their chemistry is hotter than a 5 alarm fire.  Wes and Natalie have known each other for years, since Wes is her brother’s best friend.  Natalie has been in love with Wes for as long as she can remember but since he has put her in the off-limits category, she has tried to move on with her life.  But, Natalie has a few tricks up her sleeves and she uses them to her advantage.  After losing a bet to Wes, Natalie must be at his beck and call for 2 weeks.  Wes thinks he’s gotten the upper hand but this turns into a battle of wills and may the best woman win!  Natalie is dynamite.  She owns herself, a shy and simpering maiden she is NOT!  I LOVE HER!!!  She takes all of Wes’s challenges and turns the tables.  And Wes?  Yeah, he’s so hot and alpha, my Kindle almost burst into flames.  When Wes finally caves and realizes that he may have met his match in Natalie, their frenemy status becomes a frenemies-with-benefits relationship.  Wes has a sinfully dirty mouth and he is not afraid to use it.  Natalie is completely on board and she delights in the erotic encounters with Wes.  Their passion took my breath away!  During this time, they come to realize, that their relationship just may be more than they ever expected.  I could not get enough of them!  Smoking hot bedroom scenes, witty banter, and beautifully emotional, this book runs the gamut of feelings and I loved every second of it!  We see some characters from previous books in Big Shot and we are introduced to some new faces, who will undoubtedly soak our panties just as much as Wes and Natalie’s story did.  The plot was fast paced and completely held my attention from beginning to end.  There is good clean fun and zero angst which made this a  refreshing, yet scintillating read.  This writing duo just can’t write fast enough for me and everything they write together is beautiful and mind-blowing.  I can’t wait for the next book in this series!  I recommend this book to readers who like dirty talking, sexy heroes and sassy, bold heroines.  I also recommend this book to readers who like the enemies to lovers trope and brother’s best friend trope.  Big Shot is rated 5 stars.

Excerpt Tour – Adoring Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

1001_2017_Carrie Ann Ryan_300dpiAbout ADORING INK

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the most unlikely of romances between the one that got away and the man who can show her the world.

Holly Rose fell in love with a Montgomery, but left him when he couldn’t love her back. She might have been the one to break the ties and ensure her ex’s happy ending, but now Holly’s afraid she’s missed out on more than a chance at forever. Though she’s always been the dependable good girl, she’s ready to take a leap of faith and embark on the journey of a lifetime.

Brody Deacon loves ink, women, fast cars, and living life like there’s no tomorrow. The thing is, he doesn’t know if he has a tomorrow at all. When he sees Holly, he’s not only intrigued, he also hears the warnings of danger in his head. She’s too sweet, too innocent, and way too special for him. But when Holly asks him to help her grab the bull by the horns, he can’t help but go all in.

As they explore Holly’s bucket list and their own desires, Brody will have to make sure he doesn’t fall too hard and too fast. Sometimes, people think happily ever afters don’t happen for everyone, and Brody will have to face his demons and tell Holly the truth of what it means to truly live life to the fullest…even when they’re both running out of time.

“How about Holly’s List? Simple and easy to remember.”

She looked over at him. “So what’s next on Holly’s List?” she asked. “I haven’t actually told you anything I want to put on it, you’ve just guessed.”

He sat up so he faced her and he could watch her expressions as she spoke. He didn’t know why he liked watching her like this when they talked, but it was as if he couldn’t get enough of her.

Again, his brain screamed that they were approaching dangerous territory, but he ignored it.

“I figured we’d slowly work our way up to grander things, but if you have stuff you want to do, we can.”

“That’s the thing, I haven’t done anything. I’ve worked and read books. That’s it. So anything new is by far more than anything I could have thought up on my own.” Her hands played with the ripples in the water, and she sighed. “I know I’m putting pressure on both of us with this, but I’m having fun. Are you?”

“Hell, yeah. Despite what others might think of me, I don’t spend all my time doing reckless things and being an idiot. I’m usually working or at the gym. So doing things that are a little out of my routine is a nice break.”

Her fingers played in the water again. “As long as you want to do this, then I’m in. I’m having fun, Brody. I never realized how…staid I was before this. I do the same things day after day and research anything new endlessly before I do it, to the point that it’s not fun anymore. It’s how I’ve always been. But maybe it’s time to change that.”

“You’re already changing some of it. But Holly? I like you for you, you know. You don’t have to change everything.”

She turned so she was facing him, and his heart rate sped up. Hell, he needed to get a grip.

“That’s the nicest thing you could have said. I like me, too, Brody.” She paused. “And I like you as well.”

At her words, he did the only thing he could.

He kissed her.

Review – Finders Keepers by C.A. Rose


Want a quick, down and dirty read with a super-alpha hero and a young, sassy heroine?  Look no further than Finders Keepers by C.A. Rose.  This book was super-fast (27 minutes) and over-the-top hot!  Our heroine, Aspen, finds herself broken down on the side of the road.  Unable to call for help, Aspen begins walking.  She is then confronted by a “wolf”.  But not everything is as it seems and she faints, only to find herself being “rescued” by Hunter, our seriously hot, bearded,  possessive hero.  Really…did I mention he is hot?  And has a bada** beard?  Yes?  Well, it’s worth repeating!  So begins their insta-love, crazy-fast, ultra-erotic love story.  I love this trope and I ADORED this book.  It has a little bit of everything I want in my book….a little bit of danger, a little bit of humor, an extremely heavy dose of erotic sex, and a happily-ever-after that was so sweet, I got a tooth ache. Have I mentioned there is an uber-alpha, bearded, smoking hot hero?  Sorry…again, worth repeating.  Just like this book.  It’s definitely a keeper and one I will re-read.  If you find yourself sitting in the waiting room at your doctor’s office (tis’ the season) or waiting for that oil change (because we independent women can do it all, including taking care of our cars) and you need something to pass the time and get your motor running, download Finders Keepers.  Seriously, do it today.  You will thank me…and C.A. Rose.  This was the first book I read by her (although her sweet and sassy alter-ego, Aurora Rose Reynolds is a HUGE favorite of mine) but it was enough to set me on a one-click trip through Amazon.  Yes…it’s that good.  5 Stars!



He found her.
He’s keeping her.
No one, not even her, is going to keep him from doing just that.

Friction a SEXY All-New Standalone from Emily Snow is now LIVE!

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.

Recent divorce, check.

Pending lawsuit, check.

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.

It can’t get much worse, right?

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she’s positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she’s advertising is a little … unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she’s seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He’s also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.

And the friction between them?

Well, that’s the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at.
