In High Cotton by Kelsey Browning & Nancy Naigle
4 Stars
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely love the Grannies… Abby Ruth, Sera, Lil, and Maggie are a boatload of fun. As the grannies attempt to fix Lil’s beloved car the tucker Torpedo before she finds as they also deal with a garbage scandal and stolen art. These quick witted, downright hysterical grannies kept me laugh throughout. This is a great series from two amazingly talent authors that you do not want to miss. I do recommend reading them in order but it is not necessary.

Holy Wow! Gavin Scott is somkin”!

WOW! This book was not at all what I expected. The falcon club sounds mysterious and you instantly want to know more, however this is not your everyday “fun” club. When college freshman Erica meets older Jamie, member of the falcon club, in one of her class is she instantly intrigued. Jamie is gorgeous and seems to be interested in Erica at well.

This was not your typical college romance book, In a book that made me heart melt and then made me want to jump into my kindle and beat someone, Amy Stephens has done an amazing job with this book…the ending left my mouth open and my heart racing. Hats off to what promises to be a wonderful series.

 
                    

             
JB3 is Back!!! Waited what seemed like forever for this awesome addition to a fabulous series. Love Cassidy and James, the last book left us wondering what will happen.. Cassidy is pregnant and madly in love with James however he has hurt beyond repair and in walks Paul an old flame willing to do anything to have Cassidy back. This book was an emotional rollercoaster but I could not but it down, JB3 is so freaking hot its ridiculous. There are so many surprises in store for readers and they will not be disappointed.
I don't give away spoilers but know this is not a book or a series that you want to miss.. it is absolutely amazingly written and look forward to more.

More then Friends by Tabetha Thompson

4.5 stars

I received this an exchange for an honest review from addicted to books and authors.

I was drawn in from the very beginning and what I liked the most was both the male and female POV's. Chloe has sworn off men and enjoys her current life working for her long-time friend Tom at his bar. Skye has loved Chloe since high school when he was a geek and afraid to tell her, now he returns and is HOT immediately catching Chloe's eye.

Throughout this amazing book we are taken on a roller coaster of lies and deceit and it really is about learning to trust and letting the past be in the past.


 
 
 

Forever and More by Tabetha Thompson

5 stars

Received in exchange for an honest review from Addicted to books and authors

I was so happy this book picked up where more then friends ended. Chloe is recovering from her physical injuries but her emotional trauma is just to much and she shuts down becoming severely depressed. When one of her “episodes” causes her to return to the hospital she learns some very important news and realizes just how sick she has be come.

This book is more about Skye trying to forgive Chloe for what he thinks she has done, and for Chloe to overcome her illness and snap out of it so that she and Skye can move on, but will it be together or separate.



 
 

Bittersweet Catastrophe by Maureen Mayer
5 stars
Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review from Addicted to books and authors
This book takes place after the first two in the series but is told in Shayne's POV. He has found all he has ever wanted in Liberty and for a year they have been trying with no success to get pregnant. When she finally realizes she is pregnant life throws them a major curve ball and we see how real life can be. I don't like to give away spoilers so I won't get to into detail but this book was very emotional and I ugly cried several times. It was very heartwarming to be able to see from Shayne's POV what he felt and how he was dealing with the situation. I LOVE Shayne!
It seems this books just get better with each one. The author just pulls you in and keeps you intrigued and wanting more. I can't wait for Brett's story and more from the whole bunch.
 
 
 


Taste test by LB Dunbar

5 stars

ARC received in exchange for an honest review from Addicted to books and authors

WOW! This was my first read by L.B and I was not disappointed. We meet Ethan who has dreams of being a chef and is given the opportunity to work for a well known author an exchange all he has to do is keep his location, employer, and basically everything secret. On his first day he discovers Ella, his employers niece, also lives there and has secluded her self from the world because of her past.

Ella and Ethan are instantly attracted to each other, yet hate each other as well. Their banter was so fun to read. I am definitely looking forward to the next in the series and I am going back and reading Sound advice asap.

 
Sterling Sunshine By Cheryl Dragon
3.5 Stars
This is the second in a series but can be read as a stand alone. Gretchen moves to Sterling Alaska, which has a high male to female population find most of the relationships 3-4 men with one women. Toni, Ross, and Matt are already in a complicated relationship but feel as if something is missing from their lives, in come Gretchen catching them all by surprise and showing them what they need to be complete.
While I enjoyed to story I felt like there was just not enough to connect me to the characters and I was left feeling like, that's it? The banter between the guys is hilarious and it was for the most part an enjoyable read

This was my first read by Elle Brooks and I was not disappointed it was a very well written story and the characters very life like, I felt drawn into it and had trouble putting it down. Looking forward to more by her.

 
 

Let me begin by saying thank you to these amazing authors Sienna Mynx, Aliyah Burke, Pepper Pace, Tianna Laveen, Latrivia Nelson, Erosa Knowles, Serenity King, Bridget Midway, and Yvette This box set was overall a great deal and well worth the price

Rallenti by Sienna Mynx is an amazing story, Kyra I found to be annoying but I truly enjoyed the story
Raw Exposure by Aliyah Burke loved Reeve and Affrica and was totally engrossed in the story
Everything is Everything by Pepper Pace Two young lives destroyed by poverty, drugs and violence and yet with love all is overcome. (or so we hope in the next)
Tattooed Moon by Tianna Laveen I love a tattooed man! I found this story to be great, two people from different sides of town find love in the most unusual way.
Vasily's Revenge by Latrivia Nelson was a grand slam read. My first read by this author I look forward to reading more of her work. The Medlov family is deep in crime mot to mention ex-wives and was very torn by the ending
Double Trouble by Erosa Knowles; twins are known for causing trouble but the O'conna twins take you all the way there. Great read
The Wrath of Michael by Serenity King the second book in the Alesi Men Series and I enjyed it so much I was displeased at the ending
Last call by Bridget Midway, good read that include very mild BDSM
Sieged by Rym by Yvette Hines I struggled with this story because paranormal is not my favorite thing to read, but it held my attention well.
Overall this box set is worth the price and it will be enjoyed by those who decide to read it.

 
~~Cursed Heart~~ Book 2.5 in the Cursed Series by t.h Snyder t.h Snyder is an amazing author I have loved everything she has written and Christian was no different. I loved having his background story, that being said he is NOT the man for Etty. When we were first introduced to Christian in Cursed Ecstasy I really liked him until the way he left things at the restaurant, then I thought "wow, what an a$$". Now we see a little into his past which helps explain his actions more. I do hope we see Christian work through his problems and settle down with a nice women but not Etty, bring on someone new for him but let him become a permanent member of the cursed crew :)
