synopsis_thumb2

She's ready for the ride of her life . . .

Lauren Grahame is looking to reinvent herself. After leaving her cheating husband, Lauren moves to Carnal, Colorado, and gets a job as a waitress in a biker bar called Bubba's. It's a nothing job in a nowhere joint . . . until Tatum Jackson walks in. Lauren has never seen a man with such good looks, muscles, and attitude. But when he insults her, Lauren doesn't want anything to do with him. Too bad for Lauren he's also the bar's part owner and bartender.

When the rough-around-the-edges Tate meets the high-class Lauren, he thinks she won't fit in at Bubba's. Yet there's more to Lauren than meets the eye, and Tate soon sets his mind on claiming her as his own. Before long, the desire burning between them is heating up the cold mountain air. But when violence strikes the town, Tate must reveal a dark secret to Lauren-one that may put an end to their sweet dreams.

5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't be happier! This was just so full of everything - great characters, drama, intensity, bits of humor and it was extremely well developed. Just an excellent read!

Full stories like this, with so much detail and imagery just make me so happy because I feel like I’m lost to a whole other world. I love that feeling. To be so hooked into the story that everything around me melts away. That's exactly what happened too - I couldn't put it down!

Tate and Lauren were so great. I loved their bickering and sweetness and their sexy times made me melt. They both had their own struggles and I really enjoyed watching them work it all out and come together. Tate - sweet and sexy, bad ass alpha male. Lauren – caring, loving, determined, and a really strong woman. They were just great and I really liked all the other characters in the story as well. There were just so many different layers with all these side stories going on and all the interactions were fun and exciting. I especially loved the new relationships that were formed, as well as the ones that were healed and the ones that were moved on from. But the relationship between Lauren and Jonas melted my heart, so sweet.

In the midst of it all the romance, there is turmoil, drama, and a suspense element that kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing. There was a part at the end where I was holding my breath. Very intense!

Loved the epilogue and how it all wrapped up and all the happily ever after’s. It left me happy! It all played out so well. 

Another beautifully written story by Kristen Ashley, I just can't get enough!

Review: Find Me In Passion – Part 3 (Dark Pleasures #4) by Julie Kenner

Find Me in Passion 3

Find Me In Passion – Part 3 (Dark Pleasures #4)

by Julie Kenner

 

synopsis_thumb2

A doomed woman. A dangerous and mysterious man. And an epic passion that cannot be denied…

From the first moment I saw Malcolm, I felt his power shudder through me. Lithe and powerful, dark and controlling, he cast a spell over me that I didn’t understand, but to which I willingly surrendered.

One touch and I melted. One glance into his storm-swept eyes and I was lost. One kiss, and I was bound.

But sometimes passion can burn to hot, and it would take all of our strength for Mal and I to survive the fire that raged between us...

Don’t miss Mal and Christina’s story:

Find Me in Darkness

Find Me in Pleasure

Find Me in Passion

And be sure not to miss the first novella in this exciting and sexy series by Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner), Caress of Darkness, a 1001 Dark Nights novella.

***NOTE TO READERS*** Each of the 1001 Dark Nights novellas stands alone. (Caress of Darkness and the 2015 release, Caress of Pleasure.) The Find Me books are a true trilogy and are meant to be read in order.

4 out of 5 stars

This story was filled with tension, turmoil, passion and hotness! I really enjoyed it.

I thought part three was a great end to this series. Christina was really struggling but Mal was right there for her. I love their connection and the passion they share. There was a nice amount of heat but the focus was really on getting to the conclusion of Christina, what was going on with her, and her relationship with Mal and I thought it played out well. 

Loved the intensity at the end and everything that happened with the amulet but I was hoping for a bit more drama. I was so happy about what happened with Raine. I think this is a great series with a nice otherworldly element mixed in. 

Complimentary copy received for honest review.

Review: You Really Got Me (Rock Star Romance #1) by Erika Kelly

You Really Got Me

You Really Got Me (Rock Star Romance #1) by Erika Kelly

 

synopsis_thumb2

The first irresistible novel in a hot new series about a rock star on his way up—and the woman he wants to take all the way…

Emmie Valencia has what it takes to be the music industry’s hottest band manager. She just needs to prove it. Determined to discover a killer new band, Emmie is ready to make her move. First stop: Austin, Texas.

As a sizzling-hot lead singer, Slater Vaughn has no trouble raising heart rates—but his band’s been flat-lining for years. When Emmie, his bandmate’s sister, crashes with them in exchange for some free management, her industry know-how lands them a spot in the biggest music festival in Texas. But it isn’t just her business acumen that catches Slater’s attention. Emmie is sexy and warm, and—for the first time in his life—he wants more.

But as irresistible as Slater is, Emmie is done with musicians. In her experience, a man can’t be a rock star and someone to trust with your heart—but Slater is determined to show her he’s both.

I loved this so much! It was fantastic! A wonderful story with these great characters filled with so much passion. It was just an exciting read!

Emmie and Slater were excellent characters. Emmie Valencia, this girl. Wanting so much but having so many insecurities, trying to be strong and push through them. She's so sweet and smart, just a normal girl. I totally got her and understood her. Sometimes I wanted to shake her and say "you got this" but I could totally relate to why she held back at times. Slater Vaughn, this man. Oh goodness, he was fantastic. Talented, sexy, protective, and sweet. There were moments where Slater really showed how vulnerable he was and it made my heart melt. I loved the fact that this is from both of their POV’s, that’s one of my favorite things.

I love how Emmie and Slater were friends first and their relationship really grew and evolved from there. I could feel the build between them, it was so great to get all those different levels of emotion from them while they were fighting their feelings. It was a steady build that really grew and developed and it was timed perfectly. I kept getting tingly feelings in my body and my stomach flipped while reading because I could feel their connection. Together they had this undeniable passion that built and built and then bam! combustible! I loved their hotness together, just the perfect amount. 

I was excited learning all the details and how things developed, I was hooked from the beginning! Besides Emmie and Slater, there was also the story about the band. I really liked all the guys and getting to know them. I loved the connection that Emmie had with her brother Derek and I’m excited that the next story is about him. I was into everything that was happening with the band and and the conflicts involved. Besides the passion, there was a lot of anxiety and tension. I got stressed out on more than one occasion. Not a fan of Piper Lee but she was a definitely a well written bad guy.

This was just a full wonderful story that was full of passion, had really good development, and awesome characters. Loved it!
