Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar—and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn’t the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word. His commitment is to his brothers, his bar, and his bike. So why can’t he stop thinking about the naughty Cinderella who rocked his world, then left him—and her panties—behind?
Olivia Hemmingway knows fairytales are for little girls. Drowning in debt and hiding a shameful secret, she won’t be saved by a knight in tattooed armor, no matter how mind-blowing their one-night stand may have been. Olivia never expects to meet her masked lover again. But when she takes a job at Hendrix Caldwell’s bar, her sexy new boss seems all too familiar. And once the lights go out and the music is turned up, the sparks between them burn hotter than ever.

This had a Fun, Hot Cinderella meet Coyote Ugly Twist to it.
Yes you'll have to read it, in order to get what I mean!!
These 3 can really put on a show that's for damn sure!!
Super Hot Brothers Grinding and Thrusting Ummm Huummm Hope you got the imagery..
There were things from Olivia's past that were holding her back!
She went off on her own to deal but was starting to feel the harsh truth of how hard it really was
out there on your own. You sometimes need to realize there comes a time you might
need to put down those walls, open up and ask for help!!
Olivia had the cutest fetish with undies and sayings..
"Consent is fucking required"
Was my favorite saying - cause once it was given, there was no stopping these two from jumping
each other every chance they could..
There were so many sweet moments and some really funny ones cause Olivia really was a nut!!
This book also put out a great message on awareness regarding HPV - definite Kudos there!!

The Biker & The Brat!!!!
Forbidden Romances, Second Chances & Happy Endings
Ghost and Jessie's story flowed so differently from the others...
There were no hidden agendas nor did they hide the fact that they cared for each other..
But just how deep that love went was what we got to see..
Ghost gets a blast from the past when he gets a call and it sets up a series of events that at first look aren't going well at all but some how you find out fate actually wasn't fucking with them..
Every negative event somehow turned out to be a necessary evil with a positive outcome!!
We get that popular step sibling forbidden romance here but it's not front and center to be honest.
Ghost has always been a hero in Jessie's eye's and she felt she'd let him down when her rebelliousness took a bad turn.. She'd grieved and lost so much so soon she'd ultimately lost herself and her way..
Ghost WAS at the right place at the right time by mere coincidence..
He's never considered himself a good guy.. But there was nothing he wouldn't do to protect Jessie
that was a VOW a PROMISE he made years ago!!.. Jessie wasn't the little girl he left behind, but she was still very much the Brat with major Sass, A Brat he can't seem to keep his mind or hands off of! But would he be able to put Jessie before his club?
After her recent nuptials, Nikki Brenton is quickly thrust into a world she once avoided. Unable to adjust, her unhealthy addictions begin to tempt her and threaten to poison more than her sanity.
Nothing has ever been peaceful for Eric Brenton, and his life with Nikki is no exception. The past he suppressed has returned to wreak havoc on his life. He quickly discovers he can’t avoid his past, because it’s ready to attack him where he is most vulnerable.
When the truth is as subjective as reality, the line between trust and doubt is tested; for Nikki and Eric the line may come dangerously close to disintegrating.
Love these Warnings!!! Lets me know I'm in for one hell of a ride...
Content contains descriptive violence, graphic sex, coarse language, and scenes that some readers may find objectionable. Reader discretion is strongly advised.
Reading TST was like being dropped off in the middle of an endless maze..
It was Wickedly Complex, Twisted, Gritty and Dark!!
So many players this time around Eric and Nikki are basically the pawns...
Eric was hands down one of the cockiest most sadistic, manipulative, narcissistic SOB's
I've had the pleasure of reading about.. He's the type of Asshole you'll Hate to Love..
He'll have you creaming your panties while scaring you straight!
We definitely got to see the Ethan side of him through his nightmares and what bits and pieces he fed Nikki of his damaged past..
He somehow managed to get snared in one of the many webs he's weaved - literally stuck
Oh what tangled webs we weave!!
Nikki just needed someone to confide in, a friend..
Just one Damn Friend!!!
But no one was stupid enough to dare extend that Olive Branch, they knew their
lives would never be the same...
There were so many secrets, so many lies and deceit
I felt as if I was on a never ending roller coaster where the biggest drop was stuck on replay
Over and Over again.
It was a total mind Fuck!!
It was bitter sweet to see Nikki start off so strong and then slowly start to come undone!!
She never once held her tongue no matter the consequence.. But she was no match for Eric
nor his sordid past..
Due to obvious reasons old and new she couldn't be 100% honest with Eric she held something's back to protect her heart and others to protect him.. But as they say no good deed goes unpunished and so it set off a chain of disastrous events!!

Six hundred minutes. That’s all it took ex-SEAL Kade Kingston to find trouble his first day home. He’d managed to survive covert operations in the hostile mountains of Afghanistan, only to be brought down by a baseball bat. If he had the first five hundred minutes back, he would have only had one drink before insisting his old friend tell him what the hell was going on. As it stood now, he and Sutton were both dead in the water—literally and figuratively. Six hundred minutes. That’s all it took for Kade Kingston to walk back into hell in his own backyard, losing everything in the process . . . including his freedom.
Inmate dog trainer, Harley Dash, knew Kade briefly as a teenager and was convinced of his innocence. Wanting to help the brooding ex-SEAL, she took it upon herself to force Kade into the Inmate Dog Training Program while she looked for a killer. With Kade confined, Harley and her father, along with two sexy SEALs, looked for evidence that would set Kade free.
Unfortunately, for Kade, Sutton's murder was just the tip of the iceberg in a case of corruption and murder, one that will send Kade and Harley into the Florida Everglades with a killer.
Will they survive the alligators of the Florida Everglades, or will the Dread Pirate Roberts exact his revenge?
I Love CP Smith reads!!!
They are always full of Controlling Alphas, Quirky heroines and a whole lot of suspense, fun times and Insta Love!!
This one threw me for a loop in soooo many ways!!
We started with Kade already incarcerated and basically got to piece together the why and how's!! How did this War Hero end up in Jail? Who are the major players and how the heck are we going to get him out?
All this while quoting and getting clues from a well known movie known to all!!
(But me apparently)
Yes Peeps The Princess Bride!!!
Nope I haven't seen it YET! but you better believe I am..
Although I did feel a wee bit left out at times..
with all the funny quotes and characters they continued to refer to..
I still enjoyed how the story unfolded and overall flow of it!!
And when I say they I mean Kaid and his SEAL team "His Brute Squad"
Yea got that from the book :)
It was funny to see these big dangerous men quoting lines from the movie!!
Harley was an absolute hoot and didn't run from danger.. She was sure of Kade's innocence and did everything and anything to prove it.. Even when asked to stay clear!!
We got the history on Kade and Harley, dealt with some heart felt situations and got an awesome HEA!!! Princess Bride Style...
Give me sometime and I'll soon be a Princess Bride Guru..
