Synopsis

The worst day of my life happened when Brandon died.
We had our entire future mapped out.
Careers, marriage, kids—in that order.
Then the universe threw a curveball and ended it all.

As I come to terms with everything, I learn I’m carrying his baby. Now I’m living with his roommate, the guy who’s made my life a living hell the past two years. Hunter’s now the one to hold me up when all I want to do is fall.

Knowing my religious parents will never accept the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I think he’s gone crazy, it’s the only plan that’ll keep them in my life. So I do whatever it takes to make our relationship believable—kissing, touching, even letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want to admit we’re no longer pretending.

The guilt of what we’re doing eats me alive as I struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer, showing me how he’s always felt.

Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn Hunter’s been keeping secrets.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…

Review

Baby Yours by Kennedy Fox is the perfect conclusion to this emotionally captivating duet that has managed to wholeheartedly captivate my every thought and emotion! This dynamic duo never ceases to amaze with their storytelling ability and they always manage to have me on the edge of my seat as I inhale their beautiful words of art!

After that shocking ending in Baby Mine I wasn’t sure what was in store for Hunter and Lennon, but all I knew was that these two deserved a happily ever after and I was rooting for them since the very beginning! My heart broke because of the tragedy these two had to endure, but beyond the heartbreak there was an opportunity for them to experience happiness…if only they were willing to BOTH take a leap of faith! This story held a lot more twist and turns than in the first book, but each new obstacle helped to shape their journey. It was like a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I loved every second of it!

Readers are going to fall even more head over heels in love with Hunter and Lennon! Also don’t forget that even though their story is complete doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing more of them in Mason and Sophie’s duet (Truly Mine and Truly Yours). One can only hope at least!

Review – The Fall of Troy (The Odyssey Duet #1) by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

The Fall of Troy by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary
Release Date: May 21, 2019

Synopsis

Love is angry. Love is blind.
Love is envious and loathful.

And I loathed Léo Baudin. My new art professor. My enemy.

I didn’t move to Rhode Island for this. I came to forget the Troian Milanovic I’d left behind and start fresh where the damage and betrayal couldn’t follow.

But Professor Baudin wouldn’t let me.

Cold. Caustic. Captivating.He didn’t just push my buttons…

He lit them all up with the indifferent smirk of an aristocratic French asshole.

But how much I loathed him only made my need for him stronger.

To have him would be either victory or loss. There would be no compromise.

To have him would be war.

So I fought back.

But I was Troy. And he was the wooden horse, full of dangerous secrets I never saw coming.

I was the one who invited him inside my walls, celebrating without seeing through his disguise.

And under the cover of darkness, he laid siege to my body, my mind, and finally, my heart.

The first may be a myth, but this time the history books would show that if Troy fell, it was with her all.

Review

The Fall of Troy by Rebecca Sharp was absolutely EVERYTHING that I look for in a forbidden romance story and I am head over heels in love with this author’s beautifully poetic storytelling ability! Her words wholeheartedly captivated my body, mind, and soul; leaving me completely breathless as I inhaled every moment of this story! I still cannot believe all the twists that this story threw at us and I don’t know how I am going to wait for the next book because I need it like RIGHT NOW! Seriously that cliffhanger ending left me with a fit of emotions, but I have no doubt that the wait is going to be worth it…even if it feels like it’s too far away!

Troian “Troy” Milanovic and Professor Léo Baudin’s chemistry managed to light my heart on fire and holy sh*t did I find myself struggling to catch my breath. Their story was steamy as f*ck and my goodness was I burning up from the intensity of their romance. These two broken souls manage to find love and begin repairing their hearts, but with obstacles standing in their way they are going to have to fight for what they want!

This story is a masterpiece and a MUST read story for all forbidden romance fans! I cannot freaking wait to get my hands on The Judgment of Paris, the final story in The Odyssey Duet!

Synopsis

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed–her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…

I didn’t.

I didn’t jump out.

I didn’t get embarrassed.

I relaxed.

And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.

He became my sanctuary.

Because–four hours earlier–my twin sister killed herself.

Review

Ryan’s Bed is a beautifully gripping tale that will captivate you whole body, mind, and soul while leaving you completely breathless by the intensity of the author’s words and the emotion behind them. This is the kind of story that will leave your heart raw and exposed by the emotions that you will experience throughout Mackenzie’s journey of understanding and healing from the loss of her twin sister.

Tijan manages to show readers the truth and heartbreak behind the aftermath of suicide and helps us to understand the healing process that loved ones experience. The author handles it perfectly in a delicate manner and I am still trying to repair the pieces of my shattered heart. Ryan came into Mackenzie’s life at the right time and helped her to discover that there is life after death. He became her savior when she needed him the most and she became his happily ever after. Their love was just what each other needed to heal.

All I can think about right now is why the heck did it take me so long to read this book??? This story took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and I think it’s safe to say that this story has forever changed my life, especially after that unexpected reveal at the end of the story. Let’s just say I did not see that one coming at all, but at the same time it was what this story needed. Hands down one of my all-time favorite read…forever and always!

Review

The moment I heard the dynamic duo, Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, were releasing a brand new M/M romance I couldn’t add this story to my TBR list and one-click it on release day fast enough! These ladies are incredible authors on their own merit, but when they team up together they are an unstoppable force and their storytelling ability is dynamite!

TOP SECRET was a sexy, sweet, hilarious and emotionally captivating college romance that had me falling head over heels in love with every moment of Keaton and Luke’s story or should I say Lobsterpants and SinnerThree. I didn’t think that it was possible to fall even more in love with a book couple after finishing their story, but as the days pass I find myself thinking back to these two and discovering even more reasons as to why I loved them so much! Their story just made me smile so much and I was laughing so hard that tears were running down my face at times. The chemistry between them was so freaking hot and dreamy that I had to fan myself time and time again because of all the angst!

It might have taken two years to get a new M/M romance out of this dynamic duo, but holy moly it was worth it! Let’s just hope that they don’t make us wait too long for more because now that I have had a taste of this again, there is no freaking way I can wait another two years! Do yourself a favor and one-click this story RIGHT NOW!

Synopsis

I knew falling for him was wrong. I did it anyway, his half smiles and blue eyes pulling me deeper. Blue eyes that made me soar. He wasn’t mine to keep, though. And like all good and rare things, it came to an end.

Then he strolls into my life, armed with dimples and gray eyes. Gray eyes that ground me. He smashes through my defenses, stealing what is left of my heart.

Now my heart is a war zone, past and present battling for my forever.

They say lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice. I call bullshit on that theory…

Review

Autumn Grey what the heck are you doing to me girl because you so totally left me emotionally drained after devouring this beautifully heart wrenching story! I still cannot believe you just left us hanging like that and I am already eagerly anticipating the final book in the Grace Trilogy. That cliffhanger ending took me completely by surprise and seriously I need it like…RIGHT FREAKING NOW!

Disgraceful knows how to bring on the angst and my heart is still trying to beat out of my chest as I think back to it. Grace and Sol story really had be on the edge of my seat until the very end. There were so many times that I wanted the power to reach through the pages and shake some sense into these two. I want them to get their happily ever after, but of course we still have one book left so I am holding out hope that it will definitely happen because if it doesn’t I think my heart will be obliterated! I just don’t know how much more I can handle, but I cannot wait to find out what Absolution, the final book in the Grace Trilogy, has in store for us!

Review – I am free by Regina Bartley

56973988_2397111556974780_1906529385624633344_n

I am free by Regina Bartley
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Release Date: November 3, 2015
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

A standalone novel about one girl’s fight for freedom, and one boy’s chance to stand out.

The day that Grace turned eighteen, she was finally able to escape. She packed a bag, tiptoed out of her kitchen door, and ran away from her home, leaving behind a world of hurt. She was chasing the one thing that she’d dreamed about her whole life… Freedom.

Jackson was a star. He was popular. He was loved. He was the opposite of Grace in every way. He’d never known what it was like to be different or misunderstood. If he wanted something, he got it. It was that simple. Until her… It would take more than a slick one-liner to make Grace fall for his charms.

Grace may have only carried one bag when she ran away, but her heart was weighted down with the heavy baggage of her past. Her secrets would come out eventually, and when they did, it would take an awfully strong person to help carry her load.

I belong.
I am me.
Don’t judge.
Just see.
Let me live.
Don’t hold me back.
I’m not fragile.
I won’t crack.
Just because,
You think you know.
You’ve cast me out.
And kept me low.
Please don’t hurt me.
Let me be.
For the first time,
I am free…

Review

Regina Bartley wholeheartedly captivated me and brought tears to my eyes within the first few pages of this incredible story and I instantly knew that I was in for an emotional journey. The moment I cracked open this book and started reading it was impossible to put down and I ended up devouring it within a few hours! Still can’t believe this is only the second book that I’ve read from this amazing lady, but I plan on changing that really soon!

Grace’s story was emotional heartbreaking and no one could fault her from fleeing from home on her 18th birthday. Her past could have broken her, but she was hands down one of the strongest female characters I have read in a longtime. She definitely wasn’t going to let her past hinder her future, but that doesn’t mean she has fully escaped it yet, especially when her father has made it his mission to find her.

Just as Grace is adjusting to her newfound freedom, she meets Jackson who is popular and a star on his basketball team. These two are complete opposites, but at the same time it’s as if they were destined to find each other! I absolutely loved the dynamic between these two and I adored how their friendship blossomed into a relationship. My only complaint is that I wish there were more moments between these two showcased throughout this story because I couldn’t get enough of them!

I am free by Regina Bartley is a must read story and readers will find themselves on a rollercoaster ride of emotions throughout Grace’s heartbreaking tale that fills us full of hope as she finds her freedom!

Synopsis

ABRAHAM DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD…

He’s a fixer and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident “grandfather” on the wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at three in the morning–whether he likes it or not.

Abe’s current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a girlfriend on the LoveU app–without getting caught in the lie…

SKYLAR GABRIEL. IS. OVER. IT.

Over her bad grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys gone?

She longs for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU.

On her worst day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date).
On her best, she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie.
On Thursday? She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate.

Skylar Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.

Why?

BECAUSE ABE DAVIS IS A LIAR.

Review

Sara Ney writes the BEST romantic comedies ever and the books in her How to Date a Douchebag series always manages to have me rolling on the floor laughing my a** off at all the hilarious moments she brings our way with her hilarious cast of characters! When she announced that another book in this series was coming our way I was super excited because I needed a good laugh and this story certainly gave me everything I wanted and so much more!

The Lying Hours brings us the unique story of Abraham Davis and Skylar Gabriel and I absolutely adored everything about these two! Their story wholeheartedly consumed me and I found myself devouring it in one sitting because I could not put it down. Abe totally just became my new obsession and I have no plans of forgetting about him anytime soon. He is seriously the ideal leading man and one that I totally wish was not fictional. He just gave me all the warm and fuzzies and I FREAKING love how amazing he was. Abe and Sky perfectly complimented each other in every way imaginable.

This was a sweet, swoon-worthy, and hilarious story that brought on all the laughs with just the right amount of steamy moments! Make sure to one-click this story right now and start the journey of falling in love with Abe and Sky!
