#1:

“Don’t hate me, Lena,” he whispered. “You want to be mad at me when I do dumb things, that’s fine. But don’t ever hate me. I couldn’t take that, not from you.”

#2:

“Fuck he was beautiful, inside and out, and he would never be mine. That information sat sure and safe inside of me, turning me to stone because it was utterly undeniable. But I was still expected to stay here, be with him, and support him, the job I both did and didn’t want with all of my heart.”

#3:

“I’m sorry I fucked things up. I thought if we could just stay the same, then everything would be all right and you’d never want to leave. But I didn’t give you what you needed and it all went to shit.” His beautiful blue eyes shone suspiciously bright. “I’m sorry. I don’t want anybody else. You’re everything to me, Lena. I’ve never felt this way about anyone. I need you to know that. You gotta understand that, okay?”

#1:

“You need some fucking impulse control and coffee. That’s what you need.” David’s forehead crinkled. He pushed Mal back with a hand, bringing his prono dance performance to a halt. “Better yet, when when was the last time you slept?
“I’ll sleep with Anne.”
“No, you won’t”
“Yes, I will.” He raised a hand high. “For I am, Malcolm, Lord of the Sex!””

#2:

“Ah, man,” he sighed, shaking his head slowly, mournfully. “I’m not sure I can stick my dick in a woman who doesn’t even know who John Bonham is.”
“‘Stick your dick in’?” I asked, my brows probably touching. “Did you actually just say that?”
“Make love. I meant make love … of course. I would never just stick my dick in you. I would make mad, passionate love to this sweet, sweet body of yours for days, no, weeks. It would be beautiful, pumpkin. There’d be little angels, and birdies, and you know … all just hanging around, watching. Perverts.”

#3:

“Pumpkin, I’m always serious when it comes to you. Even when I’m messing around, I’m still serious as shit. Whatever you need, whatever I have to do. It’s been that way since we met. Haven’t you noticed yet? We’re fucking destined or something. I can’t help myself. It’s pathetic, really.”

{Review} Chasing Darien by J.M.Stoneback


36403834Chasing Darien by J.M. Stoneback

eBook, 240 pages

~Rating: 4.5/5 stars~

Goodreads

ALANA
Broken, shattered, downright destroyed.
But I’ll be damned if I’m going to let my cheating ex-husband win.
I’m determined to get back in the game, put myself back out there,
And risk it all over again.

And Darien Casey is exactly the distraction I need.
Sexy, cocky, rude, and irresistible.
He’s everything I need,
And everything I shouldn’t want.

DARIEN
Hell, I’m no knight in shining armor,
Nobody’s prince charming.
I can’t fix her broken heart.

She’s sassy, nerdy, and undeniably irresistible.
I don’t know what it is,
But everything about Alana Underwood makes me want her more.
She’s a pain in the ass,
And I can’t get enough.

~Review~

*a copy was provided by the author*

OH my! Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down~ 

This book was full of emotion. I fell in love with Alana and Darien. Alana has just broken up with her cheating husband and hads no desire to love again, until she met her brother’s friend Darien at the club she works at. They both have broken hearts from past marriages. The connection they have is soo incredible, characters were great and watching their relationships grow was very, very hawt. haha  

Passion, desire, love, hatred. This book was full of emotion and such a good romance that has its hotness and a bit of drama. This is the fist book I’v read from J.M. Stoneback and it wont be the last! I highly recommend it!

Cover Reveal ~ Riske and Revenge by Natalie E. Wrye: Giveaway!


~~~

Riske and Revenge by Natalie E. Wrye

(Lies and Lust, #1)

Publication date: October 17th 2017

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

World…next to hate.

I knew hate. Had known it since I was seventeen. For me, it was love turned on its head, a product of hurt and fear—twisted, tied up…and placed on the sculpted shoulders of Ethan Riske.

***

Dayton, Tennessee.

Home to the best cow-tipping in the world, the biggest hot dogs, and the lousiest sex.

Or so I’d heard…

They were right about the first two. Ethan Riske proved them wrong about the third and at seventeen, he and I spent a summer under the stars, squeezing our way out of trouble, sweating and panting among the haystacks.

Until he left.

Nine years later, when a huge publishing house tries to buy my small press, I storm into the office of the CEO to find him.

Same cocky grin. Different name.

And suddenly all I can think about is exacting revenge on Ethan Riske for breaking his contract…and my heart.

But there’s someone who wants revenge even more than I do. As I begin to fall for the new Ethan, will the sins of the old one come back to haunt us?

{Review} Rhett by J.S. Cooper


21851505

Rhett by J.S. Cooper

Paperback, 418 pages

Published July 8th 2014 by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

~Rating: 5/5 stars~

Goodreads Button with Shadow

~Description~

I’m Rhett.

I’m cocky because I can be. I’ve got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I’m the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down.

I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage.

I’m all about the fast life and everything that entails. There’s a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect.

Until the day she told me she was moving away. She’s my best friend. She was my first kiss in grade school. We share everything with each other. We never dated because I don’t love her. I don’t care that she’s moving. I don’t care that she’s moving for a guy. I don’t care because I don’t love her. I don’t do love.

I’m Rhett and I don’t let anything get me down. Then one night changed everything and everything I thought I knew was called into question.

All of a sudden, being Rhett didn’t mean so much anymore.

~Review~

I’ve wanted to read this for soooo long and finally got the chance!  I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I loved watching a player brought to his knees and losing his heart. Those are the best ones to fall.

Rhett has always had everything he ever wanted. He’s good looking, smart, rich, a ladies man, and a best friend that has been by his side no matter what. That best friend is Clemmie. But Rhett is the ultimate player, and can be a real jerk! But he’s the sweetest ever towards Clemmie. Rhett knows he can depend on Clemmie and he expects her to be. This expectation isn’t of selfishness or because he can be a real dick. It’s because she lets him step all over her. She’s been his best friend, since they were young, and calls out all his BS every time. She understands him and his conceited ways. Even though they are complete opposites, they truly do have a great friendship.

But now, she realizes that she has always put him first and her needs lasts. Now she is going to put herself first. She is going to put herself out there, start dating, and start moving towards her future life. A new life that might not have room for Rhett. But when Clementine starts dating other men and looking into moving, Rhett’s attitude towards her changes. He suddenly sees a woman instead of a girl. A woman that he wants more than anything. Everything he does reminded him of Clementine, even hook ups weren’t working without thinking about Clementine.

I really felt for Clem in this book and what she wanted and the direction she wanted her life to go in. She was really relatable and loveable from the start and as the story went on we realize she isn’t as naïve as Rhett portrays her to be. The end, is just romantically cute how he tries to get Clementine back, and in the back is his Mother who left Rhett when he was young and he hurt because he didn’t know why she left him alone with his dad. This book is terrific insight to boy/girl best friend issues. It sets a high bar for any future reads like this. I highly recommend it!

#1:

“I wanted to tell her that I didn’t want anything to change between us.”

#2:

“I could have patted myself on the back. It was so easy with women. Give them a few compliments and smiles and they were like putty in my hand. Everyone aside from Clementine. It was like she was immune to my charm. It had never bothered me before, but now it was fucking annoying me. Why wasn’t she into me and hanging out? Why had she never been into me? I frowned as I thought back to high school and the moment when I’d turned into the boy all the girls wanted. Clementine had never started acting all girly on me. “

Rose Thorne had a perfect life. Beautiful. Fun. Vivacious. She had the perfect husband. And the perfect sprawling mansion in the poshest part of town. Until a perfectly viperous size three in heels walked past her Adonis of a husband and left her as sad and pathetically broken as an old country tune. After months of sobbing over her broken life Rose is learning that maybe “perfect” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be anyway. More than ready to get her groove back Rose joins her best friend’s gym. She’s bound and determined to learn to live again. And to be the awesome person she knows she still is. That’s where she meets her panty melting, personal trainer, Jackson Moore.

Jackson is used to women throwing themselves at him. He’s fit. Tall. Smart. And has a smile that could charm the panties off a saint. Rose Thorne is like no one he’s ever met. She’s brash. Hilarious as hell. She’s also a very voluptuous size sixteen. But there’s something about the saucy woman that sparks his imagination. Jackson is a good time guy, he loves women, he loves sex. Relationships are for pansy-ass losers. He’s got aspirations, goals, and a secret. A big one. One that prevents him from letting any woman too close. But Rose makes him want to throw his rules out the window. She makes him want to open up. She makes him want…everything.
