My Rating: 4 stars
Holy Smokes, what a sensual and seductive book. Wow, Disarmed was a book I totally loved to bits. There were so much passion and love written in this book that I was so glued to the book. I even devoured this book like I was devouring a piece of cake. Disarmed was certainly a guilty pleasure that I wanted a bite of more and more. To make it much sweeter is that this is my first book by Eva LeNoir. What a debut for me. Omg, the story captivated and consumed me.
Disarmed is a story about art connoisseur Jade who leads a double life. By day she in charge of an art gallery. By night, she submits herself to her Masters, Miles and Carson. However, Miles feels and wants more. This story was a unique BDSM story. It had elements that brought out angst, emotion and an extra powerful edge that was beautifully written and perfectly executed. Every scene in Disarmed flowed so easily that I was able to follow the story. I really enjoyed the role of domination and submission in the story. It had more depth and it gave a more distinctive dynamic to the story. Plus the sex scenes were hot. I was fanning myself the entire time lol. However, I wanted more. There were parts that I felt I needed to know more. They were just too rushed that I found myself not connecting with certain areas.
Miles and Jade have genuine chemistry that was off the charts. I would have wanted the author to explore Miles and Jade more together as a couple. Jade was strong. She had an independent nature that I really loved but still be able to submit to Miles. She had a vulnerability that gave her an extra edge to her. Mile was protective and so alpha. Omg, his dominant side was sexy but I loved that she had moment were he was there for Jade.
Disarmed was a charming and refreshing book to me. I loved it and it definitely exposed me to an author I will be reading more of.

"Every pawn is a potential queen. – James Mason
Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so excited to bring you the most amazing story of this century, The Pawn, an edgy, sensual and seductive story that will have you at the edge of your feet and give you the most illicit shivers ever. Damn, I was so in love with this book. It was that book that just oozed dark romance perfection at its finest. I was simply in love with everything in this book. I am a huge fan of Skye Warren and she definitely outdid herself with The Pawn. Wow, I am in awe.
“You taste like I’m fucking dying and you’re the only water around. You taste like goddamn air.”
The Pawn is about the story of a naive girl, Avery who is led into a dangerous game with a billionaire Gabriel Miller. Wow, this story was so mind blowing. The Pawn was a dangerous, gritty and suspenseful book that had me reeling. I felt like I was in a movie. I am telling The Pawn gave me the most amazing goosebumps that I could feel it my skin. Wow, I was so addicted like a person who is addicted to alcohol and drugs. The Pawn was my own personal drug and I wanted to live in the high it gave me. The Pawn was pushed to its greatest heights. I was captured from the first page to the last. The Pawn was like a cat and mouse game but with a dangerous and high stakes. Skye Warren truly wrote a magnificent book. She is a genius. I would love to go into her brain and know how she comes with stories like this. (I am fangirling here a bit lol). The Pawn oozed dark and grit in its beautiful form. Not only was it suspense but there was a story of sacrifice. How far are you willing to go to help the ones you love even though you know it will cost you your reputation and also a piece of you?Yep, this story will cripple you and bury you but in a good way.
"A little bird in a gilded cage. Why keep one except to hear her sing?"
Avery is such a naive girl. I mean there were times I wanted to shake her to her senses. But she had a quiet strength to her that made her such a likable character. I loved her journey as a woman. I always love when I read a woman discovery her sexual self. I saw her developing chapter by chapter. It was such delightful process to read.
"He’s like a puppet master , moving me faster and faster until I come apart."
Gabriel, Oh my Gabriel. What a man. My gosh, I absolutely fell in love with me. He was dangerous, unpredictable, harsh and so secretive. I wanted to know more about him. He had that swagger and edge that was just so darn sexy. Aaa, I want to have his babies lol. Gabriel also had moments of vulnerability that I wanted to know more. There is more to him and I cannot wait to know a bit more in the next book.
The Pawn is one of those books that will forever be etched in my ind. I really cannot wait for the next book because there is so much I want to find out. With Skye Warren, I know it is going to be a wild epic ride.

A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 29
To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.

As my papa’s G5 began its descent, I looked out of the window beside me and waited for the plane to break through the clouds. I held my breath, body tense, then suddenly the burnt-orange remnants of daylight flooded the plane, bathing the interior with a soft, golden glow. I inhaled deeply. Italia.
Fields and fields of green and yellow created a patchwork quilt below, rolling hills and crystal-blue lakes stretching as far the eye could see. I smiled as a sense of warmth ran through me.
It was the most beautiful place on earth.
Sitting back in my wide cream leather chair, I closed my eyes and tried to prepare myself for what was coming. I was flying to Florence airport, from where I would be swiftly taken to the Palazzo Savona estate just outside of the city.
I would meet Prince Zeno.
I had met him twice before—once when I was four, of which I had no memory, and again when I was ten. The interaction we’d had as children had been brief. If I was being honest, I had found Zeno to be arrogant and rude. He had been thirteen at the time and not at all interested in meeting a ten-year-old girl from America.
Neither of us had known at the time that that our betrothal had been agreed upon two years prior. It turned out that the trip my papa had taken to Umbria when I was eight was to secure a forever-bond between the Savonas and the Acardis. King Santo and my father had planned for their only children to marry. They were already joined in business; Zeno’s arranged marriage to me would also strengthen both families’ place in society.
I thought back on my New York farewell of nine hours ago and sighed. My parents had driven me to the private hangar and said their goodbyes. My mama cried—her only child was leaving her for a new life. My papa, although sad to see me go, beamed at me with the utmost pride. He had held me close and whispered, “I have never been more proud of you than I am right now, Caresa. Savona Wines’ stock has plummeted since Santo’s death. This union will reassure all the shareholders that our business is still strong. That we are still a stable company with Zeno at the helm.”
I had given him a tight smile and boarded the plane with a promise that they would see me before the wedding. And that had been that.
I was to marry Zeno, and I hadn’t protested even once. I imagined to most modern-day women living in New York, the process of arranged marriages sounded positively medieval, even barbaric. For a blue blood, it was simply a part of life.
King Santo Savona died two months ago. The shareholders of his many Italian vineyards, the stakeholders in Savona Wines, had expected his son, Zeno, to immediately step up and take charge. Instead, Zeno had plunged himself into the party scene even harder than before—and that was quite a feat. Within weeks my papa had flown out to Umbria to see what could be done.
The answer: our imminent union.
My Rating: 5 stars
What a beautiful book. Omg. What an absolute gorgeous story. I simply could not help but fall in love with it. This is my first Tillie Cole book. Shocking, right?I was just blown away by the story. I mean, this book screamed love and heart. I just could not help but be swept with the story and live in the moment because this book completely had me spellbound. I was completely and utterly amazed by A Veil of Vines as a whole. It was just perfect.
A Veil Of Vines is a modern fairy tale of royalty, nobility, heart, pain, destiny and true love set in the beautiful wine lands of Italy. It was such a beautifully written story full of emotions and intensity that truly and irrevocably touched my heart, body, mind and soul. The story itself was so unique and different that I was just blown away. It is one of those stories that screamed originality and perfection. i was so engaged with the story. Tillie Cole knows how to write a book. Her descriptions were so vivid that it felt that I was in the story itself feeling the emotions and actions. I was definitely moved to the story. Oh yes. I was emotionally wrecked by mot parts that they trully touched me to the depths of soul. Tillie Cole definitely gave a piece of literature that had so much purpose. I commend her for that. Plus her sex scenes were so sensual and full of passion and love that wow, I thought my kindle will burst into flames.
A Veil of Vine introduces to facts about on philosophical and deeper level of soulmates that the characters to me were the real deal even thought it i fiction. We were introduced to Caresa and Achille, two different people from different worlds who destined to be. I love them as a couple. They had that raw chemistry that made an amazing couple to read. Caresa was a strong heroine and also vulnerable. There was a balance to her that made her so likable. Achille, oh Achille, I loved him. I loved him that he was genuine and authentic. You do not be cocky or dominant but just loving and caring. And Achille definitely nailed that. Italians always do it best lol.
A Veil of Vine was a story that really touched me to the core. I loved it. I will definitely be reading more books from Tillie Cole. I am definitely a fan

Why the fuck is Kira at this party?
I have no right to begrudge her this. She should be here, having fun, experiencing college to the fullest.
It just burns that she came here without telling me. That she didn’t even think of inviting me.
That she’s pushing me away while making time to sit on the grass with Austin.
If Dana hadn’t told Ryan to call me, I wouldn’t have known Kira was here.
This party is taking place in one of the student’s homes—a mansion so fucking big, it’s bordering on ridiculous.
I’m never going to find Kira here, and according to what Dana told Ryan, Kira’s shitfaced. Drunk out of her mind.
And Dana lost her.
Growling under my breath, I push past the crowd, ignoring every drunk girl who tries to grope me.
Sometimes I wonder how I ever got high off this kind of attention. How my ego fed on it. It’s annoying as fuck.
I’ve already checked the large ass kitchen. Two of the sitting rooms. The foyer. The pool room. And almost every room upstairs.
I get a text from Dana. Marilyn just spotted her going into the movie theater on the first floor. OMW there now.
Of course this place has a movie theater, too.
Fucking ridiculous, as I said.
I about-face and practically fly down the stairs. I have no idea where the hell the movie theater is, so I grab a few people as I walk and ask them.
All of them are as clueless as I am.
They look at me as if I’m crazy.
To them, I probably look like I am.
Finally, I find one person who knows. Don’t know who he is, don’t care. He points me in the right direction, and I rush away without even thanking him.
The theater is all the way in the back of the house, in an area that’s actually empty. I get there in time to see Dana opening the door and rushing in.
Man, she’s an awesome girl. I could never thank her enough for caring for Kira the way she obviously does.
I go inside and find the small theater empty, except for Dana, Marilyn . . .
My breath whooshes out of me at the sight of her. I’m instantly hard, aching, furious, and possessive.
We haven’t fucked in days and I’d be lying if I said my balls aren’t full to bursting. I need sex right now like I need air and she’s the only person to give it to me.
But she came here, in that tiny, dark purple dress.
I have no right to tell her how to dress--but what the fuck is she doing coming to a party dressed like that without me?
Kira’s leaning against one of the chairs all the way at the front of the theater, refusing to move despite Marilyn urging her.
It’s obvious she really is drunk as a motherfucker.
“I just want to be alone, guys,” she says, almost whining.
I refuse to be amused. Now’s not the time. I’m too pissed at her.
But, fuck me. She’s sexy, adorable, and those lips are begging for my cock.
“I know, sweetie. But it’s not good for you to be alone right now.”
Kira swats Marilyn away. “Stop your shit, woman. You’re not my mother.”
Even Dana laughs at that one.
“She’s not. But I’m your man. And I say you’re not going to be alone.”
They all turn to stare at me as I walk down the short steps toward them.
Kira’s eyes flare with resentment.
She rakes me with a cold stare that still manages to burn my entire body with how hungry it is.
Damn. If any of these girls just happen to look down a bit, they’re going to get an eyeful of how hard my dick is.
“I don’t want you here, either.” She swats me away like an imperious little queen.
“Girls. Leave us.”
Marilyn and Dana hesitate at my tone.
I don’t have time for this shit. “Now.”
Dana snaps to action first and leads Marilyn up the stairs and out of the theater.
Kira’s still looking at me with that rebellious hunger, a lust-filled sneer on her face.
I have no qualms about reaching down and palming my dick in front of her.
Her eyes flare hungrily.
“We’re leaving, Kitty. Now.” I can’t fuck her until she sobers up considering how angry at me she is, but I’m getting her home.
Kira steps toward me and stumbles at bit.
I rush forward and catch her, pulling her up against me.
Contact. Seering, torturous contact. I have my arms wrapped around her, my hands on her ass, before I realize what I’m doing. As always, it’s an instant reaction. Absolutely zero control over my own body.
Kira pushes at my chest and that sexy small growl she gives me turns me on so much. “Don’t touch me.”
My barely leashed temper snaps free. “Like hell. You’re mine.”
She struggles against me, her body sliding along mine. “Excuse me if I don’t want to go back to fucking the dick I’ve seen inside Jennifer two too many times.”
She’s hurting. I get it. Shit, I’d be even more feral in her shoes.
But I’ll be damned if I let her pretend she doesn’t want me anymore.
Fisting her hair, I slide my other hand under her dress and roughly shove her panties to side.
Kira lets out a broken gasp at the feel of my fingers slipping inside her.
I move them around on purpose so she can hear how wet she is. “Lie to me again. Tell me you don’t want me,” I growl in her face.
Her arms wind around my neck and she slams her lips against mine. Growling at me like she hates me and wants to eat me at the same time, she kisses me with everything she has.
Trying to control me.
I want nothing more than to show her who’s fucking in charge here, but she’s licking my tongue like it’s the tip of my dick, and her hips are thrusting up and down, fucking my fingers.
Using me for her pleasure.
Her body locks up, her plump pussy swelling around my fingers. A throb, a rush of liquid, and she’s squirting into my hand, her sexy moans echoing between our lips.
I manhandle her, my mind cracking under the pressure of so much need. Spinning, I fall to my knees on the short steps and place her beneath me.
The steps are short but they’re huge. Enough to accommodate her lower body on one.
Kira leans back with her elbows on the step above her. Head thrown back, gorgeous throat exposed, she struggles to pull in air.
I lean back on my haunches and yank my belt open.
The sound makes her raise her head. By the time her eyes are on my crotch, I already have my glistening cock out in my hand.
She whispers my name like a prayer.
This is what I need. No more distance. No more pain. Just her and her nearly demonic need to have me.
And I need this even more.
I grab her thighs and tug her toward me. Kira says my name again. Her hands land on my shoulders, fisting my shirt.
I spread her legs wide, wider than I probably should, and slide that juicy cunt right onto my dick.
Her body arches off the stairs like she’s being possessed.
If I haven’t left enough of me inside her for her to understand—for her to accept—that I own her and always will . . .
I’m going to remedy that.
And there’s nothing she can do about it.
I pull my hips back, slow, hissing at the slick feel of her pussy walls tightening. Trying to keep me in.
Kira whimpers, clenching me even harder.
Wanting to let me go and powerless to do anything but keep me.
Using all my strength, I slam back into her.
One hard, vicious thrust.
She cries out and comes all over me.
Just like that.
I crack my neck, a growl purring through my chest, and lay into her. No mercy. No thought.
I’m close. Just a few more pumps into that slick cunt.
Kira fists my hair, her moans bouncing off the walls around us. I lower myself down and brace my elbows on either side of her head.
She tries to tug me down and kiss me.
I slide one hand beneath her head, fisting that beautiful hair, and drag her up to me. “Who told you that you could come here dressed like that?”
She bites my lip hard enough to make my vision snap white. I think I taste blood. “Fuck you. You don’t own m—” She chokes on her words with my next thrust.
I can’t stop groaning, yet somehow I’m laughing in her face at the ridiculousness of her statement. “You want to keep fucking lying to yourself, Kitty?”
She hisses like the wild cat she is and leans up to lick across my bottom lip. When she pulls back, I see it.
Her lips are stained with the blood she drew from me.
I press my lips to her, our tongues dueling. We’re nothing but a mindless mass of sex, and I can feel the come rising up my shaft.
In the back of my head, it registers that I hear people speaking.
On the other side of the door.
“That bitch ruined my life!”
“First off, don’t ever call her a bitch in front of me. Got it? Secondly, you have no proof it was her that sent your parents that video. Third, back the fuck off, or I’m going to forget we were ever—”
The door opens.
I raise my head enough to look up. For a split second, the fact that we’ve been caught freezes me.
Then I see two pairs of familiar blue eyes locked on us.
My Rating : 5 stars
Damn, what a book. Never in my wildest dreams would I have a book that would make me a bit mad. I felt like I was high on some weird shit I tell after reading Own. After reading Need and Take, I had to read Own because these books really made me lose my damn mind. I was so blown away with the storyline. Wow, Own was a perfect conclusion to Brayden and Kira's story. It was such a beautiful story told with so much conviction and poise that my eyes were so glued to the story. I was definitely owned by Own.
Own is the third book in the Need Series. You must read Need and Take first to be able to understand the story. I was pulled into the story like the first two. The story itself was so beautifully written and so immaculate. Everything in the book was woven together. I found myself in a trance reading Own. I loved that most things are resolved. I had so may questions and I am glad that they were answered. Own was a steamy book full of angst, heart and emotions. It was such an emotionally charged book that had my heart pounding with excitement. I was at my edge of my seat. There was a good balance of plot vs sex scenes. And man oh man, those sex scenes were on fire just like the previous books in the series. I thought that my kindle would combust with the heat and also the sexual tension. Wow, they were red hot. K.I. Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco know how write a sex scenes and give a good quality balance. I was in awe. Definitely was the perfect conclusion.
At first Kira annoyed me sometimes but I loved that she was such a strong character. She had moments that made her so lovable. She got to be really badass and I loved that. Brayden, oh Brayden, such an amazing and dirty mouth he has. Lol. He made me tingle in the right place. Wow. I wish he was real. I could give him a ride of his life lol. Anyway he was an asshole at first but I loved that he got to prove himself. I was really happy about that.
Brayden and Kira have that chemistry that rocked my socks off. I loved their banter that just made me feel so happy and swoon. They were the perfect couple. They were so comfortable together. What a journey they both had together as a couplr.
Own was a perfect story that was flawless. It definitely gets a slot on my favourite books of 2016. It certainly deserves it. Judging by the teaer in the book, can't wait for the next book

N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.

It is one of the books that will forever be etched in my heart, mind, body and soul. It is a book I will forever remember because it was such a special story from the heart and I fell in love with everything about it.
Spiralling Skywards #2: Fading is not just a story but it is beautiful piece of literature that was honest, emotional, heartwarming and so real. Yes it is fiction but it screamed realism through out because you are able to relate with the story so much. I am in awe. I devoured this book but the beautiful thing is that it affected me at a large scale. And that is what you want in a book. You want a book that still lingers in your mind. You want a book that affects you on greater scale. Spiralling Skywards #2 delivered that and more. I know Lesley Jones took a risk with the story but I loved that she did because it showed that she wanted honesty and a story that could impact you as a human being. I commend her for going with her gut because she produced a phenomenal book. She definitely took it to another level. I cried when I read Spiralling Skywards #2. I could not hold back my tears because the contents in the story really touched my heart so much. I was so emotional and I felt the my heart breaking most times. You know when its cold outside and it causes ripples and shivers in your body, well, this book gave me shivers and ripples to the point that I could feel it in my heart.
Lesley Jones really is a phenomenal writer. She putts her all in her stories and that makes her so talented. Yeah, this book might make people angry but she showed sometimes life is not of sunshine, roses and rainbows but there is something inside of us that plagues our souls each day. We each have that darkness that we battle each day. Spiralling Skywards #2 really touched me on a personal level and brought out a few things that I could relate.
Liam and Sarah are a couple that are real, honest and relatable. Yes you may feel their chemistry and get that they are an amazing couple but I loved it showed their struggles together. Sometimes you need to see that in a book. I loved that even though it is fiction. Sarah really touched my heart. She was going through what we go through as a woman. The insecurity, the doubt in your spouse, pressures of life and family struggles and it made me relate to her a lot. We all feel that in life. Liam as ever he was loving but here I felt a shift in him. He was busy more. Neglected Sarah sometimes but I loved he fought for her. I was disappointed in him a lot but I loved how he cared and provided for his family.
Spiralling Skywards #2: Fading was a beautiful, heartfelt and captivating story that touch me to the depths of my soul. It carried a beautiful message in the story. I cannot wait for Sasha's story.

Gun Moll #2
Publication Date: November 14, 2016
Genres: Adult, Mafia Romance, Interracial Romance, Erotic Romance
As a newly Made Capo in the Pivetti Crime Family, all eyes are on James “Mac” Maccari, and not for a particularly good reason. The way to his new position in the family was paved with blood, and that left some all too suspicious of where—or who—he might be going after next. Mac isn’t interested in playing to the politics of other Made men or Cosa Nostra. His only goal is to keep his promise and be waiting for his gun moll when she’s finally released from prison.
Until all hell breaks loose … again.
Fresh off her six month sentence, Melina Morgan is all too ready to get back to life, and Mac. The mafia life has been one learning curve after another, but with Mac at her side, there’s nothing that they can throw at her that she can’t handle. Even with a ring on her finger, and a new last name to go with it, Melina won’t be domesticated. But with a man like Mac, he wasn’t exactly looking for that kind of a woman, anyway.
Sometimes, wedding bells bring bloodstains …
When directed attacks start to happen, taking the lives of some of the highest Made men in the Pivetti family, distrust and unrest begins to breed throughout the ranks. Someone is making a move on the boss’s seat, and it seems far too easy to put the blame at Mac’s feet when every single attack is somehow connected to him. All over again, Mac and Melina find they’re fighting an uphill battle to keep each other safe and survive.
But this time, they might not be fighting alone …

My Rating: 5 stars
Wow, what a ride. Gangster Moll was totally an epic story. I mean this book had everything you could want in a mob story. Abundance of roller coaster drama and high action that had your head spinning. My head was definitely spinning but in a good way. Gangster Moll definitely exceeded my expectation and I was so blown away by it. Wow. Gangster Moll told a fast pacing story of love, survival, action and loyalty, not only as a couple but also as part of the mob.
Gangster Moll is the continuation of Gun Moll, the first book in the Gun Moll series. It follows the story of Melina and Mac as they navigate their lives in Cosa Nostra. I loved reading Gangster Moll. Damn, It was like I was watching my favourite drama movie. I was so pulled to the story that the story itself etched itself to my heart and soul. There was so much dream that had me reeling and causing a ripple effect. It was so exhilarating. I love a book with a huge dose of action that had my heart pounding and Gangster Moll brought out the action. The whole book was like a Telemundo story but an amazing one. Huge amounts drama, huge amounts of sensuality and passion that you are practically swimming in it and a back story that had mystery and suspense to give an edge without confusing me. I love that the authors each up the ante with the story. They definitely outdid themselves.
Melina and Mac are like the perfect couple. Their chemistry so believable but also it has trust and loyalty in it. I just love reading about them. Their POVs just give a unique dynamic and lets you get to know more about them. I love Melina. She is so strong, fierce, feisty and just so badass. I love that I always see a vulnerable side to her. She is a survivor and that is why she is one of those heroines that will happily change my sexuality for lol. Mac is so controlled. I love how he stands by for Melina giving her protection even though sometimes she used to taking care of herself. he is possessive and loyal to a T.
Gangster Moll was a phenomenal read. Omg, I loved it so much that I cannot wait for the third book. I know it is going to be one wild ride.

James “Mac” Maccari’s career in the mafia is at a standstill. As the best solider in his Capo’s crew, all he wants is to be noticed enough to get Made in the Pivetti Crime Family. But instead, his Capo’s interests seem more focused on keeping his solider hidden from the boss, and every other Made man he can. Seemingly stuck right where he is with no chance of going up, Mac doesn’t know what will finally get him the attention he needs to earn his button.
Until she shows up and all eyes are on them …
Melina Morgan survives—that’s just what she does. She’s never been able to depend on anyone but herself to keep her safe and get things done. When a chance encounter puts her in a bad situation with the cops and the mafia, Melina has no choice but to put her faith in the hands of a man that not only infuriates her with his cocky arrogance, but catches her interest, too. Playing pretend in a fake relationship with Mac doesn’t seem all that terrible, until pretend turns real and bullets start to fly.
A man is nothing without his woman …
When the attention on Mac and Melina turns from bad to worse, and someone in the Pivetti Crime Family decides the couple needs to go, they know they’re fighting an uphill battle alone. But making it to the end alive means Mac could get what he’s always wanted, and Melina might find what she didn’t even know she needed.
Together, they’ll make waves the mafia has no choice but to notice …

An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series.
It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.
I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn’t.
And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?
My Rating: 5 stars
I am a huge fan of K. Bromberg, She wrote the Driven series, a phenomenal series that I absolutely adore. When I heard that she was going in a new route and doing something different, I was so excited. Sometimes it takes one different book from an author you love to really make you love her more. I irrevocably loved Sweet Cheeks so much. Sweet Cheeks is a swoon worthy, panty melting and heartwarming story about second chances, redemption and love. I simply fell in love with it.
Sweet Cheeks is a story that reminds you of warm summer nights, brightly lit moon, sugar sweet candies and cool breeze that gives you amazing tingles on your skin. It was simply perfection. I loved the storyline that I was so smiling through out the book. It was sweet. It was swoony. It was full of angst. It was an addictive read that pulled me in from the first page to the last page. I fell in love so deeply with it. K. Bromberg gave us an amazing and captivating story that moved and touched my soul. The amount of sexual tension in the book was so hot. I loved that there was a balance of plot vs sex scenes and I got to really understand the story better. She wrote a flawless story of love and pain that made my heart tingle in the right place. Sweet Cheeks was simply a magnificent that makes you believe in love. It was so beautiful.
Sweet Cheeks introduced us to Saylor and Hayes, Two characters I felt were so perfect together had amazing chemistry through out the book that you just could not help but fall in love. I was smiling at their banter, at their goofiness but they had heart which exploded and made me love them more and more.
Saylor Rodgers was a heroine who I loved. She was independent, strong and sassy. There were times that I actually felt so sorry for her and I wanted to give her big hug. In a way I could relate to her a lot. She is someone you would love to be friends with.
Move over Colton Donavan, there is a new alpha in town and his name is Hayes Whitley. Wow. I was swooning. Hayes is that hero that I wish could exist in reality because I will snag him and have babies with him. He was that alpha that made toe curl and my heart tingle lol. I want a guy like him. He was so loving and caring to Saylor. He was cocky without being a douche. Aaaa, I want him lol.
Sweet Checks was a perfect magical story that was candy sweet and panty dropping hot that this is K. Bromberg at her best. You should definitely read this book. Trust me.

Take my Dare is a continuation of Jackson and Sylvia. I was so excited that I was getting to read more on Jackson and Sylvia. They happen to be my favourite couple and I was so stoked to see what has been happening. I love J. Kenner. She is a talented writer and she always write books that I cannot help but fall in love with.
Take my Dare was such a hot novella packed with action, angst and drama. It was one of those novella that was a seductive guilty pleasure that I could not get enough. For a short novella, it definitely packed a punch. I was so captivated by the story that I devoured within minutes. The writing in this story as always was so impeccable. I was truly compelled by it.
I love Jackson and Sylvia together. Take my Dare really showcased Jackson's loyalty and protectiveness over Sylvia. I could not help but swoon. Jackson is that alpha that make toes curl and my body tingle. LOL. Sylvia truly was so strong and I loved that she did not let her past affect. I commend her for that. This couple will forever be the couple I just adore immensely. They have that special chemistry that is totally believable and addictive.
Take my Dare is definitely one of my favourite books of 2016.

I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they've read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty.
All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me.
After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction. They’re only fiction...

BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, Purple Heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist.
At an early age, he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination.
Upon graduation from high school, his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four-team members badly wounded.
After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state.
Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities.
After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he had always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel 'A Lover's Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, 'Into the Nothing' and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.
