Review: Shacking Up

Shacking Up Shacking Up by Helena Hunting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 The Church of Bane Cock Stars

Leave it to Helena Hunting to give me laugh out loud comedy while forcing me to look for a fan--and not for my face. Bancroft. Shit. What that man does with his mouth and his hands and...well, you get the idea. I want to throw myself at the feet of this man. Wish I was kidding.

Bancroft and Ruby are absolutely perfect. Accidental make-out session notwithstanding, these two have all the chemistry and witty banter to keep you up late into the night. You'll be laughing and you'll be angry, but mostly you'll be happy. And maybe a bit turned on.
Okay, a lot turned on. Whatever. Bancroft has a dirty mouth--and we all know that's my weakness.

"I'm going to tongue fuck your pretty pussy until you come all over my face."

Ummmmm....well, okay. If you insist, Bancroft. Who am I to tell you no? No one. Exactly. So, yeah, you go ahead and do whatever you want. My body is yours. And if you'd read this book, you'd throw yourself at the man too.

Like on a scale of one to ten he's a seven million.

Can I just say that the points system is perfect for this couple? Ruby is freaking hilarious. She is a no holding back kind of girl. She says what's on her mind--on purpose AND on accident--and she's great for a laugh. She's also a feelings kind of girl. She isn't just out to hit it and quit it. So, the feelings she has are real. The way she wants this man is real. The way she plays with this man--and not in a bad way--is real. No games, that's Ruby's way.
And it's so much fun.

"I can be a white knight with a dirty mind, can't I?"

Yes, yes you can. In fact, this is exactly how I prefer my men. And he has one hell of a dirty mind. One I wouldn't mind diving in head first.

I love it when she says my name.

Review: Destroyed

Destroyed Destroyed by Cari Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I admit that I didn't want Simon's book next. I'm impatiently waiting to see Nick and Lila realize they have a serious love for each other. But that's not how these authors played it, so here I am listening to Simon Kagan.

And I'm not sad at all. Honestly. I don't know why I didn't want his book. He's the man-slut of the group. The sex is bound to be hot and heavy and dirrrrrty.

And it is.

Simon and Margot are complete opposites. But you know what they say about opposites. They definitely attract in this book.

And you want to see how quickly they come together. And how slowly. And you want to see all the moves Simon has at his disposal. For real. I don't even know why they cut this book into 9 hours (I listened to it) because I could have kept going (which I did with Consumed ).

Review: Endurance

Endurance Endurance by Amy Daws
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you met the Harris twins yet? Did you meet Camden in Challenge? If you did, then I know you noticed his hottie, hot twin brother, Tanner Harris. Yep. Twin brothers. Their banter and loyalty to each other was on point in Challenge. Endurance only strengthens that bond.

But this isn't the story of two brothers. No. This is the story of Tanner Harris and Belle Ryan. You remember Belle, Spec's BFF in Challenge. If you're anything like me, you fell in love with her too.

The banter in this book. Oh. My. God. They are perfect. Belle and Tanner are explosive. Combustible. On freaking fire. The chemistry is off the charts. I don't know if this is because I was able to listen to this or if it's because Amy Daws knows just what the fuck she is doing, but either way, it's impressive. I couldn't stop listening. If I had the time, I'd have thrown in the ol' ear buds and stayed in bed all day listening to this British perfection.

I love a good book that forces the couples into a situation that is less than ideal. For them, at least. For the reader and those surrounding the unfortunate couple, it's comedic gold.

I love this book. There. I said it. I want to bottle it up and wear it like Harris brother sweat after a match (it's a match, there, correct? Not a game? Ugh--language barriers!). No joke. I know, it's gross, but they're just fucking perfect.

So, yeah, 5 stars. I can't wait for the next Harris brother to hit my kindle/audible library!

Excerpt Reveal: Preppy Part III by TM Frazier

Preppy, Part Three: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater by T.M. Frazier
Release Date: April 26th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The bowtie is BACK!

Dre was just a beautiful stranger when Preppy saved her the first time around. Now, he has to save her again, but she's no longer some stranger, she's family, and he has no idea who or what he's up against.

What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

Preppy's to-do list?

He's alive...and he's out for BLOOD.

Preppy Part Three is the third book and conclusion of Preppy and Dre's story. It's also the 7th book in the King Series, which should be read in order starting with KING & TYRANT.


Preppy placed his other hand behind my neck, pulling me closer. “Dre, when I look at you, when I touch you. I love you so much it fucking HURTS,” he said against my neck, the vibration of his words had my nipples standing at firm attention all over again.
“I don’t want you to hurt,” I said, although I knew exactly what he meant because I felt the same. I had so much love for him it made my chest swell to the point where I thought I might break inside. Preppy looked down between us to where his swollen cock bobbed with his every move. The head thick and purple, throbbing and glistening at the tip, dripping with his own need. “No, Doc, it hurts, but it’s the best kind of pain.” Preppy’s eyes were half-lidded. A devilish smirk played on his lips. “Look, it hurts so bad even my cock is crying.”
I returned his smile, looking up at him through my lashes. I licked my lips. Preppy groaned, placing his hands on both sides of my head, running his fingers through my hair. I pushed him to his back and crawled down his body, giving a quick lick to the tip of his cock, which pulsed in response. I watched his expression darken as he watched me kiss and lick my way around his thick shaft. “Fuck,” he cursed. “What are you doing to me, woman?”
“If your cock’s crying, then I’m licking the tears away,” I said, taking the head into my mouth and swirling my tongue around to taste his salty pre-cum. I moaned, the sound shot straight between my legs.
Preppy dug his hands into my hair deeper, pulling, holding me with more force. His abs flexed as I took more and more of him into my mouth, lightly sucking as I circled my lips around the soft skin of his extremely hard shaft.
I pulled back and softly blew on his wet cock. All the muscles in his arms tensed. His hips bucked into the air. His mouth fell open as he gazed down at me with a lust filled expression I know mirrored my own. “Any better?” I asked, wrapping my hand around the base of his shaft.
Preppy shook his head. “No, not better. I think it’s fucking worse,” he ground out, looking as if he were in pain.
“How so?” I asked, stroking him from root to tip with a slight twist at the top.
Preppy hissed. “Because I want to fuck you again, but now I also don’t ever want my cock to be anywhere besides that beautiful mouth ever again. Those fucking red lips. Jesus fucking Christ, Doc. I thought I’d already died, but you’re the one killing me.”
“You mean like this?” I asked, taking him into my mouth again. Further this time. Preppy had a monster cock and although I used to think he was joking when he said that it was the honest truth. There was no way I’d be able to take all of him but I did the best I could, taking him until the tip of his cock hit the back of my throat. Giving him all I could because I wanted to make him feel as good as he made me feel.
“Holy fucking, shit,” Preppy groaned, holding onto the ground for support with one hand, the other still fisted in my hair. The next few sentences that came out of his mouth were incoherent because I began to slide him out and then back again, using my hand on the part of his shaft that my mouth couldn’t reach. Over and over again I stroked and sucked him with my tongue, squeezing him with my lips and hollowing out my cheeks so my mouth was wrapped as tightly around him as possible.
I used my other hand to reach around him and squeeze his ass cheek, pulling him in closer, holding him to me. I released him and pulled him back again, letting him know it was okay to move. He nodded, and bit his bottom lip, watching as he began to thrust his hips upward into my mouth then slowly pulling back out, groaning as he repeated the motion.
Over and over again he thrust forward and pulled back. I braced myself with my other hand on his ass and again he held my head with both hands as he fucked my mouth. Harder and harder until tears were flowing down my cheeks. I watched as the cords in his neck strained with his every movement. I felt his ass muscles tense and watched as his entire body tightened and his cock hardened in my mouth before spurts of warmth shot from him, deep into my throat. Preppy threw his head back and in the sexiest most animalistic roar he came and came and came until I thought I couldn’t swallow one more drop of his salty release.
He pulled out of me and collapsed onto the floor without pulling his pants back up. He pulled me down with him and wrapped his arms around my back. “I think I just broke a promise to you,” he panted, trying to catch his breath. Our chests heaving together in unison.
“What promise?” I asked, confused.
He tucked me in closer, laying a palm over my breast. “The one where I said I wouldn’t die again,” he chuckled. “‘Cause, Doc, I’m pretty sure you just fucking killed me.”

Review: The Gravity of Us

The Gravity of Us The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

6 It is written Stars

What can I say that the other hundreds of reviews haven't already said? Brittainy C. Cherry knows how to make me cry. She knows how to make me love and want and feel. I went into this book with a box of tissues and a blanket. I curled myself up on the couch and refused to acknowledge the real world.

It was totally worth it.

Love. The emotion that made people both soar and crash.

This is the story of love in its truest form: the bond between parent and child.
This is the story of love in its familial form: the bond between sisters.
This is the story of an unlikely love that grows where love shouldn't exist.
This is the story of friendship.

"I know sometimes authors can miss out on social cues, but this is the moment when you're supposed to shake my hand."
"I don't know you."
"Surprisingly, that's exactly when you're supposed to shake a person's hand."

Graham Russell is a famous author. He lives in his head and in the worlds he creates.
Lucille Palmer is a carefree florist who is loyal to family. She lives in the now.
When these two meet it's under difficult circumstances. Given those circumstances, I was left wondering how in the world these two would find one another in a more intimate way, but oh boy. Brittainy C. Cherry brings them together in the most perfect way. It's intimate without being sexual, it's close without being naked, it's love disguised as friendship, it's need mixed with want.

"Just because you smile and act free doesn't mean the cage doesn't exist. It merely means you lowered your standards for how far you'll allow yourself to fly."

The push and pull with Graham and Lucy. The give and take. The take. The take. But the give. Oh, how they give to one another. How they support one another. How the desire one another.
Yet they do nothing. They act on nothing. They show nothing. Lucy is the girl who feels everything and in this moment, with this man, she must be more like him and feel nothing. She closes herself to heartache. Graham, for the first time since he was a child, he is opening himself to the possibility of love. The love a parent has for a child. The love a man has for a woman. The love a friend has for another friend. It's a beautiful change.

"If you need to fall, fall into me."

I believe Graham Cracker found his match with Lucy, but this man has a family he can count on. And not a family by blood, but a family by choice. Ollie is the father Graham never had as a child. He is the best friend he was always missing. He is the one person to never leave him. He isthe only person who has never let Graham down. He is the best side character I have ever met, by the way. I want an Ollie in my life.

"Air above me, earth below me, fire within me, water surround me...."

Review: Just Like That

Just Like That Just Like That by Nicola Rendell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.75 "Just roll with it." Stars

Nicola Rendell is a new-to-me author. I've heard of her, but I've never read her books until this one. Here we meet Russ and Penny. They are an insta-attraction, insta-love couple, but they are just so damn adorable that I couldn't stop reading.

And then there is Guppy and Maisie and that damn Mayor. The cast of characters is so freaking lovable. I wish I could visit Port Flamingo and meet everyone in town.

"Every moan, every orgasm, every please, please, please. Those are mine."

Dirty, dirty Russ. Damn. I've never met a guy quite like this in my regular life, much less randomly at the fucking airport. Lucky Penny, that's for sure.

"I'll always be trying to take control, because you're the one with all the power."

Russ can have the control. He can have the power. Penny agrees with these two statements. She gives all of herself to him--can't blame her either.

"All day it's been you. Since the minute I saw you, it's been you. I think myh whole life, even before I knew you, it was you."

Review: Where Good Girls Go To Die

Where Good Girls Go To Die Where Good Girls Go To Die by Holly Renee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.25 "What took me so long?" Stars

I'll start this review by saying I've never read a book by Holly Renee prior to this one. To say that she won me over is an understatement. I sat down with this book, just wanting to get into it so I could finish it the next day. I had just finished another book and wasn't looking to fall into another.

Well, I should have picked a different book. I devoured this book in one sitting--only stopping to update social media because I couldn't not tell people about it. Parker and Livy are the couple I want to be. Parker is the guy I wish I had. Let me explain...

"What are we doing, Parker?"
"I don't know. But I cant't stay away from you any longer."

Parker is Livy's brother's best friend. He's basically a permanent fixture at their house and vice versa. But at some point, Parker starts to fall for Livy.
Livy has always had eyes for Parker James. She knows she shouldn't because he's her brother's best friend, he's older, he always has some girl on his arm, but none of that stops her. Nothing will keep Livy from loving Parker.
When those feelings finally align, it's the sweetest romance ever. You want to read this for the sweet romance

"I love you, Livy."
"I know, but fuck me like you don't."
Shit happens. Their past is fucked up, their present is not what it should be, and their future is up in the air. But what I do know is that Parker and Ivy are hot together. The push and the pull, the fine line between love and hate, the banter, the chemistry, the sex. It may be a sweet romance, but you want to read this for the up-against-the-wall passion that tears through the pages.

I wanted him to remind me how to breathe by taking my breath away.

This is where I want to take the time to describe Parker James. He's a tatted up hottie who not only likes ink, he puts it on others. He's an artist. He draws, he tattoos other people. He's broody and intense. He loses himself in his art.
Do you guys know me at all? If you do, you know my weakness is the artistic guy. JA Huss won me over with Spencer Shrike and Nolan Delaney. Jamie McGuire got me with Trenton Maddox. JD Hollyfied hooked me with Hunter James. Jessica Hawkins with Finn Cohen. Holly Renee with Parker James.
Artists are my type. Artists are how you convince me I need to read all your books.
Artists steal my heart every single fucking time. I'm not even upset by that.
So, excellent job Holly Renee, you have a new fan. You never have to write another artist (except I'd really, really like Brandon's story) again and I'll continue to read your books.

Our voices were barely a whisper, out of fear that we'd wake our memories.

Review: Road to Nowhere

Road to Nowhere Road to Nowhere by M. Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Hell didn't want us Stars

Okay, maybe I'm hanging out in the minority, but I didn't absolutely love this book like everyone else. Was it just me? I mean, Creed is a hot biker, sure. But he's also an asshole. I like assholes, so I'm not sure what my issue was with this book, but for some reason I just couldn't get into it. And I like M. Robinson. Keeping Her Wet was hot and dirty and a nice break because it was all about the sex. And Creed and Mia's sex in that book was off-the-charts hot.

So, anyway, Road to Nowhere. Creed is older. We're talking 9ish years older. Which is cool and all, except Mia is young. Like, the first time he sees her I think she's only 9 years old. She's a spitfire. She's the little sister to his friend. She's totally off-limits because....eeew.

We watch these two grow. We watch a little girl develop a crush on her brother's friend. We watch her wait and wait and wait for this man. Even when she didn't realize she was waiting, she was. Even when he was off fighting a war, she was waiting.

The real conflict comes when she's almost sixteen. Itching to drop the pesky V-card, she finds a random guy for a quick hook up.

But really, are they ever random? Are they ever "just a hook up"? Trouble is brewing and Creed is going to be very unhappy when he returns.
From War.

I'm torn. There were parts of this book I enjoyed, but it wasn't my number one. It's not my go-to M. Robinson book. I'm going to finish up Ends Here because I can't NOT know how this plays out.

I'm pretty sure I'm #TeamNoah and I hope that doesn't bite me in the ass in book two.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Review: Faking It

Faking It Faking It by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 "We'll take it slow" Stars

Faking It is the book I didn't know I needed. I was coming off a long funk--and by that I mean it took me a week to read a book that everyone else loves, but I couldn't get into it--and needed something different. Faking It isn't necessarily light and fluffy, but it isn't the dark or heavy book I typically find myself immersed in.

Meet Hailey, matchmaking professional. She's great at matching others, but always struggles with her own relationships.

Meet Max, real estate agent extraordinaire. Busy with work, he never makes time to find that special someone so his mother is constantly finding women for him.

Hailey decides to create an imaginary fiance. This will make her look like she knows what's happening in love because she will have someone in her life to love.

Max is lusting after his client, even though he believes she belongs to another. He's respectable though and never--and I mean NEVER--crosses any lines. He treats her with kindness and respect and he respects the relationship she is in.

When Max and Hailey find themselves in a slight situation, they take this fake fiance thing to a new level.
And they do that with each other. It's a mutual relationship. They need each other. It'll end eventually. Right?!

"How do you want me?"
"Every fucking way I can have you."

I loved watching these two find each other. I mean, yes, they were pretending, but it's nice to watch those shields drop.
There isn't much conflict in this story, which is nice. Their conflict is internal and it's mostly Hailey's hangups that cause issues. But they aren't real issues because Max is perfect.

"When it happens, it's going to be because you fucking beg for it. Understand?"

Review: Turning Back

Turning Back Turning Back by J.A. Huss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 "I need him" Stars

Hello, Quin, my old friend.
I've come to visit you again.

Yes, I may have sang that, but fuuuuuck. Yes. This book is exactly what I've needed to keep me in that reading mood. And JA Huss never disappoints.

It's not her I want. It's certainly not him. But I could go for another round of us.

If you took the ride in Taking Turns, you know exactly what kind of 'us' we're talking about here. It's the best menage book I've read. Turning Back is no joke either. I might even like this more because of the fluidity, the beauty, the comfort between Bric and Quin.

"He'd be my friend again. You'd be my lover. We'd be what we were, Rochelle. But we'd be better."

Better. Who will be better? Quin? Rochelle? Bric? Is this plural relationship going to work? It's worked for so long, but what happens when they desire something more or something else entirely?

I look at him as he comes. His eyes are open. Staring right at me. Reminding me of what I've been missing this past year.

It's been a long year. When these three come back together it's nothing short of a dance. The choreography is set, the moves are perfected, the players move on feeling. You can feel what they are feeling, you can imagine yourself in any of their roles, you want to be Bric. Quin. Rochelle. You want this plural relationship more than your next breath.

He wants to hurt her right now. And he's going to use me to do it because he's not into the punishment stuff--and I am.

Fine. He wants her punished, I'll punish her until he's had enough.

Bric is the punishment guy. Quin is the carefree romantic. But what do you do when you hurt and you want the person who hurt you to feel pain? This is the best example of how these three have relied on each other over the course of their relationship. It's a great example of how Bric and Quin work together.

Her eyes are closed in ecstasy when I lean down kiss her. Kiss him. Kiss them both.

Review: Spencer: Bomb / Guns

Spencer: Bomb / Guns Spencer: Bomb / Guns by J.A. Huss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It doesn't matter how many times I read these books. It doesn't matter how often I pick up a Huss book. It doesn't matter. Huss is amazing. Huss rocks my world. And Spencer Shrike? Fuck. Me. That man is everything. My first real Huss love. My go-to Huss man. The artist, the bike-maker, the security.

Spencer fucking Shrike OWNS me. Fucking owns me.

Whether it's the first time or the twentieth time, I will always want Spencer. I mean, what's not to want? He's a romantic at heart. He does everything he can possibly do to protect Ronnie. And he is loyal to the Team. Loyal to Ronnie, but loyal to the Team as well.

And it's here we meet a key player for the next series (the Dirty, Dark, and Deadly series). Tet. Tet is a powerful man and his introduction in Guns is just the beginning.

Review: #Rev

#Rev #Rev by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

#Rev picks up where #Junkie leaves us hanging. This is where I find my only complaint--and that's because the first 2 hours of this book (I listened to it) were spent in a bedroom. However, the story, the trials and the revenge that happens in this book? Yes, that's what makes this book worth reading. The revenge is perfect. The revenge is beautifully executed. And the revenge is what drives this book.

Well, revenge and love. Because Drew and Trent love each other. They have their family (Romeo, Brayden, Ivy, Rimmel) to support them. They have Joey and the Gamble racing name behind them. They have that one reporter who called out Drew in #Junkie for being in love with Trent.

Follow along with Trent and Drew as their romance plays out on the track and in the frat. It'll play out on the field and in their personal lives. They find new allies, new friends, and each other.

Fries before guys.

Review: #Junkie

#Junkie #Junkie by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

M/M is my weakness. I can't even pretend to deny it. There's just something ridiculously hot about two strong men who find one another and then fall in love. The strength, the roughness, the loyalty.

Drew and Trent have been best friends for a long time. Drew is tearing up the indie racing circuit and Trent is the man at his side. Only they aren't together. They're dancing around their feelings and their lust and the simple fact that they want each other.

As Drew becomes more persistent in taking the indie racers public, he's put in a unique position to become a better racer and a spokesman for the indie circuit.

Trent has been by Drew's side, helping with the cars and making sure things don't get too crazy.
When Drew is forced to have a pro racer train him, Trent is forced to acknowledge his feelings because the jealousy is more than he can handle.

Finding themselves in a weird situation, one that involves facing how they feel about each other, it is hard to deny the truth any longer. These two have chemistry. Off the charts chemistry. And it's so real and grounded because it's based on friendship first and sexual tension second.

Since they are two men, they are terrified to tell those around them. They aren't sure how others will react and they don't want to lose each other.

As things begin to unravel at Trent's frat house, outsiders threaten the new relationship. Will Drew and Trent's friendship and budding romance withstand those against them or will it crumble?

Find out how this story ends in #Rev.
