Review: From This Moment

From This Moment From This Moment by Melanie Harlow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another heartbreaking love story from Melanie Harlow.

Just when you think she couldn't get any better, she does. She pushes the envelope on love. She makes you think outside the box. She makes you feel.

And I felt.

I felt happiness, sadness, loneliness, closeness, and everything in between.

Hannah is a widow, left to raise her daughter on her own. She's doing everything she can to survive, but sometimes life is just too hard, too much.

Wes is surviving his brother's death. After spending years overseas, he finally comes home to his family. While learning the ropes at the family practice, he's building and mending bridges with Hannah, his sister-in-law, and Abby, his niece.

But what happens when you start to fall for the one person you should never have feelings for? What happens when others stick their noses in your business and think they know better than you do? What happens when it all blows up in your face and the very thing you've been fighting against is inevitable?

Do you embrace it?
Or just let it slip through your fingers?

Review: Something Wicked

Something Wicked Something Wicked by Teresa Mummert
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I never know what I'm going to get when I read a Teresa Mummert book. And I like it like that.
She has a unique writing style, her words are easy to digest and absorb, her characters are flawed and messed up and redeemable.

Drake is that redeemable character. You aren't sure if you're going to like him when he first shows up, but when it's all said and done, you do. You may even love him a little.

Gabby is fun, yet serious, beautiful, shy and outspoken. She's quite the contradiction. She's also one of the coolest chicks out there.

And she catches the attention of Hollywood A-lister, Drake.

Yep, it's a fun ride. You better hold on because Teresa throws twists and flips and turns that will have you all over the place.

**I listened to this book. LOVED it. I've gotten to where i typically only choose books by narrators I like and these two make that 'like' list.

Review: Sure Thing

Sure Thing Sure Thing by Jana Aston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 She's Real Stars

I'm a sucker for all things Jana Aston. She stole my loyalty when she gave us that rom-com about the sexy gynecologist. Then she just kept going with the sexy, older men and I haven't looked back.

Well, Sure Thing is no exception to this 'haven't looked back' thing I have going with Jana. And Jennings? Well, what's not to love about a sexy, older man who is British?
Nothing, by the way. Absolutely nothing.

I fell in love with Violet first. She is cute and quirky and fun. She's likable. I want to be friends with her. This is probably one of my favorite things about Jana's characters--they're likable. And I wish I knew them all. I wish I could meet up and have lunch with them. Especially Violet. Probably because she's got that hot British guy on her arm and I'd like a hot British guy. Because....well, British. And hot. And British.

"How do you want to fuck? Soft or hard? Fast or slow? Dirty or dirty?"
The answer is 'yes, please!' in case you're curious. Jennings thinks so, too. And said in that accent? Oh, where's the audio for this book? I need it.

"Knees, love. I want to feel your warm, wet mouth wrapped around me."
Why does that sound so hot?

Oh, right. The accent. That'll do it. I'm with Violet on this one, the accent makes smart women dumb. At least it would me. Let's face it, Jana is a go-to favorite, an automatic one-click, my favorite rom-com author. In fact, she's almost my only rom-com author. I can't wait to see what she gives us next (I'm hoping for Daisy, Rhys, or even Canon)!!!

When she remembers this night it shouldn't be with another woman's name on my lips. And she will remember this night.

Review: Her Rogue Russian

Her Rogue Russian Her Rogue Russian by Leslie North
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Rogue Russian is the second book in the Karev Brothers series. I have not read the first book, but I do not think that distracts from the story. In fact, if I didn't know it was book 2, I wouldn't have realized there was a book before this one.

Maxim Karev. Russian mafia. Killer. Number one suspect in his father's death.

Savannah. FBI. Going undercover to flesh out the real killer in Maxim's father's case.

Who knew going undercover could be so hot and steamy?

The chemistry can be felt, the story is well-written, and the characters are all unique. For this to only be a 3ish hour audio, I did not feel cheated or like I missed anything.

I can't wait to read book 3 because I have to see how this plays out.
I'm going to go back and grab book 1 first though. I want to know what the other Karev brother is like because I've gotten to know Maxim and I love him.

Review: Destiny on Ice

Destiny on Ice Destiny on Ice by S.R. Grey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We all know I love the hockey boys.

This is no different. I want a Brent Oliver to call my own. Where can I get one?

Another hockey series for me to love. New hockey hotties to call my own.

One day, I'll hit puck bunny status and you all will know exactly what led me there.

Books. Book led me there. Smutty, sexy, funny, romantic hockey books.

I won't regret a minute of it.

*I audio'd this fantastic book. Tracy Marks will forever be a favorite. I can't wait to hear more of her narrations.
