Drifter (MC Sinners Next Generation, #2) ~ Belle Jewel

They say opposites attract. In my world that isn’t a good thing.
I did everything I could to escape the grips of motorcycle club I grew up in when I turned twenty-one.
It wasn’t about fear, or betrayal, or even lack of love. I just needed my own life.
I had to know how it felt to stand on my own two feet without their protection.
Then I met Diesel. Mysterious, dark, with eyes that screamed to be understood.
From the second I met him, I knew I needed to be in his life.
There’s just one problem – he’s a member of a different motorcycle club.
Two things that should never be combined. Yet I can’t stay away.
No matter how hard he pushes. I can see beyond his mask.
I need to know who he is and I’ll overcome any obstacle to be in his life.
A friendship is born, followed by an epic love.
Our relationship is forbidden.
But I’ll do anything to be in his life.

This was  another fantastic spin off of Bella Jewel's MC series..
We get to meet the offspring's of 2 badass biker clubs..

**Cheesy Grin**

So what do you do when you've met one of the hottest, broodiest bad boys ?
One who's a royal ass-hole, is dating one of the meanest heffer's in school and
 somehow manages to rock your world and throw you for a loop at every encounter??
You Befriend him of course!!

I felt as if I was reading a merging of sorts ~ mean girls/gossip girls hopping over through the screen to Sons of Anarchy..
It was funny but sad, it was sexy and sweet but then you get that WTF? moments
With the college drama but also the Club drama..

Sometimes rules are meant to be broken.. Especially when it comes to Love..

Through Her Eyes ~ Ava Harrison

One phone call changed me.
Three simple words and I was shattered.
So I started over.
And my journey of rediscovery led me straight into his arms.
Chase Porter.
The stranger who showed me life from a different perspective. 
But we both had secrets…
His would destroy my world.

Ava Harrison has once again won me over with her writing style and her ability to
put me right along side her characters..
We were taken on this grand adventure through her descriptive words
and mood set.. 

This was truly a book about self discovery, life, loss and packed with so much emotion..
Chase was able to break through Aria's walls and had her finally see clearly..
Not through the haze nor through what she thought others saw but 
Through Her Eyes..

"Your story is not yet written. Don't let your past dictate your next move. Live every day with intention. And today you intend to do something new. You intend to face your fear." ~ Chase

Aria was consumed with guilt and fears and just wanted to please everyone around her.. thought she had to do what others wanted to prove her self worth and in someway redeem herself for what she thought she lacked..

"I love you today. I'll love you tomorrow. I'll love you forever," he whispers as we become one.

It was such a beautiful story.. We saw so much and watched Aria start to let go and really, finally find herself..

Sparrow ~ L.J. Shen

Troy Brennan

Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heart-throb with steel-blue eyes. "The Fixer" who can make or break you in this city. 

Oh, and my new husband. 

Sparrow Raynes 

That's me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life. 
But then he caged me. 
Kidnapped me. 
And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up. 
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings. 

I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he'll ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he decided to take me as his wife. But I do know this: pissing off this man will not do me any good. At all. 

This read just took me by surprise and blew me away..
I absolutely love the arranged marriage theme and when an author can add a twist 
and make it their own.. I want to shout it off the roof tops!!!
Troy was a deliciously wicked bad-ass on a mission..
It's all about respect and revenge for him..
He's feared by many and is practically untouchable so when he takes Sparrow
as his wife no one is more surprised than she is.
She'd never really associated with him. she'd kept to her crowd and there was an age difference as well that apparently didn't matter much to Troy since it was just for mere convenience.. Didn't matter he'd practically caged her clipped her wings!!!

Damn Troy was an utter douche but so yummy and Sparrow gave it right back without fear.. she was everything a heroine should be.. she hid her vulnerabilities but...
She stood her ground..
There was so much to this story, mafia business, mystery, affairs, cheating (yes cheating), angst and through it all a kick ass plot that kept me engaged from beginning to end!!
And we get a HEA!!!!

L.J. Shen was a new to me author but I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style.
Definitely will pick up more of her work!!

Finley (Sunset Cove, #1) ~ Ella Frank

***A spin-off from the Temptation Series***

It's time to come home, Finn.
It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.
On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.
Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart. 
Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.

This was such an awesome read.
We got to finally see who Finley this Cocky Stud Muffin was!!
Oh but we also got to see behind  all the smoke & mirrors..

Finley in his youth was carefree, fun and was always self assured, never backed down from what he wanted and ALWAYS went after it...

It's obvious very early on he became a bit bitter and just wanted some closure due to some events that took place with a certain Love interest..

We get to meet Brantley aka The Professor and a few other amazing characters I am now anxious to meet.. plus old ones we all LOVE..

This was a super steamy story about second chances and how sometimes some sacrifices are supposed to be discussed and should never be one sided.. How are decisions are not always the right ones and we need to step back and see if they were made purely out of selfishness or possibly acted upon do to insecurities..

The Enforcer (Untamed Hearts, #3) ~ Kele Moon

They are the lost boys.

Sons of mafia mistresses expected to keep their fathers’ sins in the shadows. The lucky ones are forgotten.

Unfortunately for Valentino “Tino” Moretti, his brother Nova was too smart to be forgotten, and too valuable to risk when he resists a life of crime. So they punished Tino instead. Forced into the cruel world of the Sicilian Mafia at twelve, Tino was broken before he was old enough to know the man he was supposed to be. Now he’s what the mafia made him.

The enforcer.

A trained killer forbidden to love, but he did anyway. He's loved Brianna all along.

Raw and beautiful, their romance was all consuming and far too dangerous. They were ripped apart a long time ago. It’s not until the borgata puts out a hit on her that Brianna falls back into Tino’s arms, churning up their dark past and unraveling all the Moretti brothers’ closely guarded secrets.

This isn’t the end of the story. It’s only the beginning, and it is brutal.

There’s a reason enforcers are considered too deadly to love.

This story has wrecked me!! I laughed, I cried, I bitched
One never knows what a person has gone through by just looking at them..
Family is everything to Tino.. Not just his brother's but those he consider's true friends
The bond and loyalty Tino has displayed over and over again, words could never describe..
He's all about actions and sacrifice!!

He was broken as a child and practically forced into a lifestyle he had no other choice but take on or risk not being there for his brothers.. He carried so much on his shoulders at such an early age,, and basically got the shorter end of the stick every single time he drew!!!

Brianna was his oasis in the dry and dissolute world he found himself stranded in..
And that too was ripped away without his even realizing it!!

Lies, Deception, Secrets..

Will Tino ever get his HEA?
Will Brianna be strong enough to take on what's to come?
I sure as hell hope so... 

I need part 2 NOW!!!

A Thousand Boy Kisses ~ Tillie Cole

One kiss lasts a moment.
But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime.

One boy.
One girl.
A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade.
A bond that neither time nor distance can break.
A bond that will last forever.
Or so they believe.
When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation?
Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come. 


There will never be enough words to describe how this book made me feel..
There won't be enough pictures to portray the beauty that this book made me see..
And there definitely won't be a lack of reviews telling you how amazing this book is!!

It's a lesson on life told through the experiences of  two best-est of friends.. 

For Infinity.. Forever and Always!!!

A love so pure and innocent flourished on the cherry blossom fields of GA ..
The feelings of helplessness being so young and not having a say as to where life will lead you is gut wrenching.. 
The cruel harsh reality of Life... time moves on.. time changes us..
What will be will be!!!

This book will forever change the little things I take for granted 
I will now stop to feel the warmth of the morning sun on my skin
and will smile when I feel the wind brush across my cheek!!

Bravo Tillie Cole you are an amazing author that has taken me on so many journeys!!
And I'm sure many more to come!!

High ~ L.P. Lovell

I’m Blake McQueen, daughter of Miles McQueen: businessman, politician, all around upstanding member of the community. 

I’m told that name means something, but well, I’ve pretty much doused it in petrol, set it on fire, and taken a shit on it for good measure. I like to think of myself as a walking middle finger. 

My name is now synonymous with booze, parties, sex, and drugs. I have to read the newspaper in the morning just to see where I was, possibly who I fucked, and judge my state of inebriation based on how much tit or minge is splashed across page five. 

Judge me all you like, love me, hate me. I don’t give a fuck. 

Life’s a party and you should never stop dancing. 

But even the sweetest of highs has it’s low. There is only so high you can go before you fall, and fall I did, right into the arms of the only man that could possibly stop me from crashing and burning. I’ve always been untouchable. I’ve never cared enough to be touchable. Until now. 

Love is the most destructive drug of all.

Totally nothing like what I was expecting!!
The blurb barley captures the depth that is Blake..
There is so much more to her if you take the time to peal away all her layers..
Something that Rhett managed to do.. All too easily!!

We got to see Blake rapidly spiral into a cycle of addiction and depression.
On the outside she was all about a great time and don't give a fuck attitude !!
But that's what she wanted us to see.. what she wanted the media to see, what her parent's saw.. 
But that definitely was not what Rhett saw.. And yet!!!

This was an extremely raw read.. no sugar coating here.. a trip through the inside scoop of what we read on gossip columns daily.. What we think we know.. Assumptions we make.. And then the Truth!!

So yea, a tough read on real life
