Synopsis

It was the biggest day of my life.

I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their first child. My situation was a little different.

Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold.

Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell.

He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end.

I was his tool and his weapon.

And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.

Review

Enthralled by Giana Darling was a breathtakingly dark, twisted, and mysterious tale that will leave you completely speechless. This author draws you right into this beautifully wicked world where she pushes the boundaries with her characters and the storyline. She will even have you second guessing your sanity as you fall head first into this unconventional romance.

Alexander and Cosima’s addictive chemistry was so explosively hot that I had to continuously fan myself off as I devoured page after page of this emotionally captivating story. As much as I wanted to hate Alexander with a passion, but I just couldn’t because I knew that he was destined to be Cosima’s soulmate…even if it was forbidden. Their love was almost poetic…it was sensationally raw, dark, enchanting, and beautiful all at the same time.

My chest ached as I reached the end and now I cannot imagine how my heart can take this wait for book 2. I have no doubt that Giana Darling will certainly make Enamouredworth the wait!

Synopsis

Behind the “lights, camera, action” of Hollywood lies a world of deception, love, and seduction.

Are you ready for Hollywood Royalty?

CarterA blonde, a brunette, a redhead…he can have his pick of them all on any given night and he knows it. They wait, hoping he looks up and gives them his signature smirk, choosing them over the others because that’s his game.

Except now he’s signed the contract of a lifetime, one with a pesky little clause that says his zipper must stay up and his playboy image has got to tamp down. It’ll be fine—a piece of cake, even—he can do this and he’s almost convinced himself of that … and then she walks in the room.

The new PR girl whom they’ve hired to change his image, she’s the star of all his dreams, but there’s one tiny little problem … she can’t stand him and all of his player ways.

He knows he only has thirty days to show her why they call him Hollywood’s Prince. He’s up for the challenge, so game on.

Review

Hollywood Prince is another phenomenal addition to Natasha Madison’s highly anticipated Hollywood Royalty series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone, but I totally recommend starting at the beginning because all of the books are incredible!

This was a fun, sexy, sweet and emotionally captivating read that had me swooning over every aspect of Carter and Erin’s heartwarming story. These two brought on all the angst and their fiery banter set my heart on FIRE! The chemistry was RED HOT and I loved every twist and turn of their romance. The moment I dove into this story I was hooked and ended up devouring it in one sitting because I desperately needed to know EVERYTHING! This story was truly perfection and it gave me all the feels! Definitely a MUST READ!

Review – Downfall by Jay Crownover

Downfall by Jay Crownover
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 27, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

Solomon Sanders doesn’t have time to fall in love. Until a stunning, skittish, single mother forces him to pause and recognize just how empty and hollow his busy life has become.

From the start, it’s been ingrained in Solo’s DNA to fight.

Fight for what he believes is right.

Fight for the people he loves.

Fight for the traces of good in a place which tends to be filled with a variety of bad.

Fight for survival, so at some point, his life will quiet down and find a normal pace.

He wasn’t ready for the impact his secretive, shy, obviously out of place new neighbor was going to have on him. And never in a million years was he prepared to fall head over heels for her and her young daughter.

Now, he’s facing the most important, and the hardest fight he’s ever fought… the battle to win Orley’s damaged heart.

Orley Vincent’s heart is full of fear, leaving no space for love. Until a big, brash, brawler of a man forces his way in and makes her realize facing her fears is the only way she can ever be free.

From the start, Orley was groomed to believe she wasn’t good enough.

She wasn’t the perfect daughter. Or student. Or girlfriend.

But, she has always been the best mother she could be to her daughter, Noble.

Keeping Noble safe has always been the one thing she was determined to do, which ironically, is how she ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, living next door to an unlikely hero. Orley’s a woman on the run. She had no idea her frantic sprint was going to land her in the tattooed arms of a man ready to teach her how to fight for herself… and for love.

Review

Jay Crownover is an incredible author and one of my favorites because of the unique way she manages to create worlds that readers never want to leave! She brings us back to the Point with a brand new cast of characters and a few familiar faces that you might recognize. Of course if you haven’t had an opportunity to read Welcome to the Point and The Breaking Point series yet don’t fret because you can still totally enjoy every moment of this story without them!

Downfall is Solomon “Solo” Sanders and Orley Vincent’s story, but I feel that sweet little Nobel Vincent stole the show! They come from two different worlds…Solo has lived in the Point his entire life and Orley’s running from the gates that have kept her captive her entire life. He’s perfectly content with his life and has no plans of getting involved with anyone until this beautiful woman and her little girl move in next door. She doesn’t belong there and it’s easy to recognize that. Suddenly he’s their protector and will do anything to protect them…no matter the cost.

This was a breathtakingly captivating, sexy and heartwarming story with suspense intertwined throughout each page. My heart is still beating in overdrive after devouring this amazing read and it’s certainly one of my favorite reads of 2019! Jay Crownover is an extraordinarily talented author and she never disappoints when it comes to her storytelling ability! I strongly recommend picking up this book right now!

Synopsis

Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It’s only temporary, he said.

He never said I’d fall for him.

You know what isn’t ‘temporary?’ The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don’t even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.

I can’t take anymore.

So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.

After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.

Rules. They’re meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

Review

Emma Hart is one of my favorite QUEENS of ROMCOM and she proves just why that is with her newest release, The Roommate Agreement! This beautifully written best friends-to-roommates-to-lovers romance captured my heart with the hilarious banter that was intertwined throughout the pages of this story!

Shelby and Jay had a steamy and slow burning kind of connection with a build up that had me right on the edge about to topple over until the very end. Their chemistry was explosive and the angst was just the perfect touch to this extraordinary story! I found myself completely invested in the storyline and character development that this amazing lady created for her readers and lifelong fans of romantic comedy. She totally knows what we want and gives it to us…and even more than we could have expected!

Review – Savior by Fiona Cole

Savior by Fiona Cole
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 28, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

He bought me, but not to touch or taste. He bought me to save me, and to atone for past sins.

Handsome and mysterious, he swoops in to offer me a new life, but this is no knight in shining armor. He’s cold, hardened by his past. But there’s an inferno underneath the ice, I can feel the heat each time he looks at me—each time he gives in to the desire between us.

No matter how much I push to unleash the fire in his eyes, he shoves back harder each time. He’s merciless with his cruel words, telling me how naïve I am, how little I know of the world.

But I’m stronger than he thinks.

When we face down our demons from the past, I’ll prove which one of us was in need of saving, and which one of us is the savior.

Review

Fiona Cole does not disappoint readers with her newest release, Savior and I am absolutely in awe by the author’s phenomenal storytelling ability and character development. This story managed to consume every part of my being and left me completely breathless as I inhaled her words.

Erik and Alexandra’s chemistry sent my heart into overdrive and I am still struggling to get my emotions under control after devouring this beautifully raw and slow burning romance. These two had some super intense and angsty moments throughout and they have got to be one of my favorite Fiona Cole couple to date. The steamy passion that they have for one another is extremely evident and they sure kept us on our toes for most of the story. Oh and did I mention their hilarious banter, which was definitely amusing to see unfold.

If you enjoyed Voyeur and Lovers as much as I did, then you are going to FREAKING adore Savior, which brings us back to this crazy fun world! I mean what could be wrong with an age gap forbidden romance about a sweet and innocent girl who decides to sell her virginity online to the highest bidder?! NOTHING THAT IS!!! I cannot wait to see what Fiona Cole comes up with next and I just know that I am going to LOVE it!

Review – Envy (The Elite Seven #4) by M.N. Forgy

Envy4.jpg

Envy by M.N. Forgy
Series: The Elite Seven #4
Genres: Dark Romance
Release Date: March 25, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.

They’re wrong.

I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.

I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.

You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.

It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.

Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

Those who envy have no peace.

My name is Sabastian Westbrook.

I am Envy.

Review

Envy by M.N. Forgy is the fourth installment in The Elite Seven series and the author managed to leave me completely speechless and I am still in shock over this dark and twisted story. The suspense was more evident in this book compared to the rest of the series and it was an interesting surprise because everything that I had originally expected went out the window with this one. Just as I think I am starting to understand this series, M.N. Forgy shows me that there is still a lot to discover.

Sebastian Westbrook really knows how to live up to his sin…ENVY! He is an uncontrollable psychopath with a dark and twisted personality that will leave you right on the edge of your seat. Readers won’t know whether to run towards him…or very far away. He is definitely one of those characters that we love to hate…and love him I did! He was addictive and I wish his story had been longer because I wanted to get to know him on a deeper level.

After that ending I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, Greed by Amo Jones!

Review – The Stand-In Boyfriend (Grove Valley High #1) by Emma Doherty

The Stand-In Boyfriend by Emma Doherty
Series: Grove Valley High #1
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 9, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

Livy Chapman is in love with Jessie Stephenson. It’s that simple. She has been for years but he only see’s her as his best friend. His best friend who copies her homework, relies on her to bail him out of trouble and who he hooks up with other girls in front of.

Enough is enough and when Chase Mitchell, star of the soccer team, and all round Mr. Popular steps in and convinces her that they can do each other a favor by pretending to date, Livy is just crazy enough over Jessie to agree to it.

I mean, Chase is just her stand-in boyfriend. Nothing could go wrong. Right?

Review

Some people might automatically assume that The Stand-In Boyfriend is your typical fake relationship cliché young adult romance, but to all those people out there I have to say…THIS STORY IS SO MUCH MORE THAN A CLICHÉ! Emma Doherty has managed to shed new light into this genre and give readers everything that they crave. She brings us some crazy fun banter, emotionally captivating moments and a deeply complicated romance that brings on all the angst!

Livy Chapman is the perfect leading lady, but the real question is…who will be her leading man? Only time will tell! Jessie Stephenson is her best friend and longtime crush while Chase Mitchell is the star of the soccer team and Mr. Popular. She might think that she knows who she wants, but truth be told she had no clue that Mr. Popular might just happen to be Mr. Right. Of course she has to consider the possibility of opening her heart before she can decide who she truly wants…

I absolutely loved the dynamic of this story and these characters took my breath away. Livy completely captivated my heart and I felt as if I was right beside her as she navigated through this emotional journey. While Jessie didn’t really do it for me as a leading man, my lovable Chase definitely did and I kept rooting for him all the way through to the end. He melted my heart and gave me butterflies all throughout my body.

This is truly one of the BEST high school romances I have gotten my hands on in awhile and all I can say is that I cannot freaking wait for more stories from Emma Doherty, especially with this group of characters! She has gained a new reader and I hope she is ready for all the fangirl moments that are about to come her way!
