Review – Fight For Her by Vanessa Vale

Review:

This book utterly wrecked me!  Seriously, I didn’t want to move out of my safe and lovely cocoon of happiness and emotion for HOURS after finishing this book.  Then, I did something rare….I picked the book back up and started over from page one.  Fight For Her was just that mind-blowingly FANTASTIC!!!  Our hero, Grayson, is dynamite, his passion for life just explodes from the very first word out of his mouth!  He is alpha male, smoking hot, and completely charming.  A fighter who has moved past his fighting days has now found something new to fight for…our charming and witty heroine, Emory.  I loved Emory.  She was a smart and classy woman who stood on her own, knew what she wanted, and wasn’t blown away by who Grayson was…or how much money he had.  The chemistry between these two was so erotic, my device spontaneously shut down twice (I’m gonna blame it on the chemistry…yep…not my battery dying).  This book was one long, drawn out lovemaking session…from the very moment Grayson “rescues” Emory until the very last sentence.  These two were clearly meant of each other, and no matter what they dealt with, it was very clear that they were soul mates.  I couldn’t get enough of them.  The plot was fantastic and kept me engaged every second.  The secondary characters brought the right amount of zest and humor to the book.  The sex scenes were mind blowing and erotic, not over-the-top or lacking in passion.  There was just enough suspense to keep you guessing and hooked without being to angsty or confusing. Truly, this book blew my socks off and sent me off on a mad dash to find any book I could by Vanessa (my previously over-flowing TBR is now bursting at the seams).  I’m dying to send a message to Ms. Vale and inquire about the next book in this series.  Because WOW. I can’t recommend this book enough.  5 stars!

Review – Going Down Hard by Carly Phillips

Review:

I absolutely adored Derek and Cassie!  Truly, from the beginning of their story until the very end, I was smitten.  Derek is determined to hold and grudge and make Cassie suffer the humiliation he felt at hearing the hurtful words young Cassie spewed to her friends. However these two people are no longer young and that connection they felt to each other as teens has blossomed into full blown lust as adults.  With one apology, Cassie starts breaking down the walls Derek has erected around his heart and Cassie shows him that she isn’t who he thought she is, or was.  From the beginning they begin to heal a breach and when secrets come to light, Derek realizes that not only was he wrong about Cassie, but that she just may be the soul mate he is looking for.  Cassie is breathtaking real and down to earth.  She’s gotten a bad lot and is treated horribly by not only her brother, but her father too.  Derek sees she is hurting and soon his plan for vengeance is replaced by the fierce desire to make Cassie’s life richer and easier but more importantly, to protect her.  They have a very potent sexual chemistry…seriously, it is off the charts hot!  But they also have a very deep and emotional pull towards one another that makes this story even more romantic.  I could not get enough of the heartfelt love that was being gifted to Cassie by Derek, but even more of a surprise, was the compassion and understanding given by Derek’s mother.  Overall, this plot moved at a fast and easy pace, and did not bog you down with petty details or meaningless conversation filler.  It was epic and sincere and most definitely my favorite book of this series.  With each book Ms. Phillips write, I fall in love deeper and deeper with her storytelling and the ability she possesses to make you feel like you are part of the story, not just simply reading it.  I would definitely recommend this book to those who love second chance romances with a little bit of angst and alot of feeling.  5 stars.

About Erin Nicholas

I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.

I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.

Review – Big Shot by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde

Review:

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.

Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.
