Unforgivable ~ Isabel Love

There are certain things that are unforgivable…
Falling for your brother’s best friend is one of them.

That isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever done, though.
Not even close.

Shame and guilt follow me everywhere.
Except when I’m with him.

With him, I can breathe again.
Smile again. Love again.

But he doesn't know what I've done.

Loved this book so much!! 
It was real, it was raw and I devoured it once I had the courage to read it..
I was not a fan of Ana's ~ based on what I knew from her from Charlie's book so of course just hearing one side of the story I made my mind up and picked sides.. just like that!
Isn't that we all do?

I felt horrible after reading and getting the gist of it.. her side of everything especially what Wesley went through.. Young puppy love, sacrifice, life in all it's ugliness..
Unforgivable was so different from the other 2 books I've read by Isabel Love..
and it was just as amazing in it's own Unique way!

Gentleman Nine ~ Penelope Ward

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

You get so much more than a friends to lovers with Gentleman Nine..
Two friends brought closer together by losing someone they both loved and a third comes to play by association. 

Here's a story where two individuals trusted the wrong person with their secret and were betrayed in a sense - but that person wasn't really bad per-say just knew when to pounce on an opportunity and well just Did.. while reading I felt as if everything played out as it should have everyone was able to grow and as adults better appreciate what was right in front of them, talk about their emotions - lay them all out when it counted.
So all though the saying "you snooze you loose" might have been the way to go initially and we might have seen it as a missed opportunity for some..
The whole "If you Love someone, set them free" didn't go over so well either...

Channing was absolutely perfect!! 
Perfect friend, perfect brother, perfect son perfect everything.. *a wet dream*.... 
There was so much chemistry between Amber and Channing, they both complemented each other in so many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about their mornings, their outings, their banter. The flow was a slow simmer with a lot of sexual tension and some nail biting angst towards the end. 
This was such a fun, sexy & sweet read I didn't want it to end.

Frayed Silk ~Ella Fields

Our marriage wasn't just in trouble—mere threads were all that held it together.
What was once my perfect happily ever after had dissolved right before my eyes.
I can tell you when it started to happen.
What I can't tell you is why.
And after seven months of watching my husband turn into someone I didn't recognize, I'd given up hope in finding answers.

So I decided to break his heart
... and he did nothing to stop me.

Trigger warning: This book contains cheating and other sensitive subject matter.

I devoured this book

Loved Loved Loved!! Wow did not see that twist coming..

This book does have cheating so if that's an issue for you - do not read.. But in my opinion is what ultimately makes this story so unique and real.

Just WOW!!! the marriage aspect of the book, the families and children involved, the friends we keep by our sides in good and bad times, betrayal, secrets, insecurities, communication.. ALL of that played a role in this story and I devoured every bit of it! I was all over the place with emotions and stayed up late reading cause I had to know how it would end. Marriage isn't always pretty, it isn't always about googly eyes, kissy faces and definitely never perfect .. It's about sacrifices, selflessness, communication and at times forgiveness. 

Ella Fields swept us through Leo and Lia's life - the good and the bad and she did it wonderfully!!

Panty Snatcher (Bad Boys of the Road #2) ~ Chelsea Camaron

I don’t do call backs. 
I don’t do commitments.
I am Zane Collier, player, manwhore, and bachelor for life.
My friends made a bet. One, I refuse to lose.
Regardless of the history Sawyer and I share, I’ll remain the one hit wonder for life.
I am the panty snatcher.
So why can’t I get hers? 

***This is a small town, second chance, stand alone romance that is a fast paced short story. If insta-attraction, insta-lust, insta-love, and insta-ever after aren't your thing then this isn't the book for you. If it is then, prepare yourself to meet Zane, and wish this Panty Snatcher would snatch yours!!***

If your looking for something quick and sweet to read  in one sitting this is it!!

Zane was dubbed a manwhore but really deep down was just lost in my opinion ~
circumstances lead him to his Panty Snatching ways but as soon as opportunity struck he wasn't walking away so easily this time around.. 

Sawyer just wanted to grow up and while doing so see the world.. She needed to spread her wings in order to appreciate what has always been there - all along..

This was a cute coming of age, second chance at love read I thoroughly enjoyed.
Interested to see what Life & Love has in store for a few of the other characters..
