He’s only a friend.

Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back.

Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul.

Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most.

He’s only a friend.

The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him.

She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake.

Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes.

It’s a crock of crap, though.

Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed.

Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago.

The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

 
Review by Ashley C.

 I will say going into this book, I was a little worried due to the fact that Ellen had been with another brother… because as we all know, that tends to not go over well…. But that worry was all for nothing and this was another great addition to the Dixie Rejects series.

I feel as if this book was harder on the couple then the past few have been, espically with their history and the crazy Baby Mama. Let me say, Ellen has more strength then most, because this was a crazy as a bedbug baby mama. I loved that Ellen stood up for herself and the relationship with wanted to have with Jesse and Linc.

Jesse… what can I say about this man… he is the type of man that you want to see as a role model. When faced with a difficult situation, he manned up and did everything necessary to provide for him and his son and I fell in love with him even more.

I enjoyed the back history that Jesse and Ellen had even though it wasn’t rainbows and butterflies, it made them more relatable and who doesn’t love a second chance at love. This was a great addition to this series and just helped rev up the need and want for the next book! 5 Stars for an amazing read!

Synopsis

 Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You’re constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, “is this chocolate or … oh, crap …” and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.

 Let’s be honest … even when we’re doing this “mom” thing right, we’re somehow doing it completely wrong.

 Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

 *Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we’re all just trying to survive by any means necessary.

 Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J.

forgetting.jpg

My name is Lucy Tucker, and my life…it was perfect.
I worked the dream job. I had the most incredible family and friends. My home, Whispering Willows, a ranch in Montana, was everything I could ever wish for. My adoring fiancé, Samuel Stone, loved me unconditionally.
I had everything a girl could ever want.
But one fateful event shattered my perfect life. It’s unimaginable how simple, ordinary words can change a person’s life forever. For me those words were, “There’s been an accident.”
I thought Sam was my forever, but that forever came to a close the day Saxon Stone, Sam’s identical twin brother, came back. Saxon returned to Montana to help save Sam, however, the moment he entered my life, he turned my world upside down. But through chaos I somehow found clarity—clarity of who I was meant to be.
As time progressed, as seasons changed, and as a fire began to burn, I soon realized that Saxon was there for another reason…he was there to help save me.
couple has fun and joy. love, eroticism and tenderness in everyday life.

#Diablo #ChiahWilder #NightRebelsMC #HotRead #Review

diablo

Diablo, Sergeant-At-Arms of the Night Rebels MC, doesn’t chase women the way his fellow brothers do. Women flock to the ripped, bearded, tatted biker, but he pushes them away.

His past haunts him and rage burns deep inside him. His only focus is the club, his Harley, and his shots of whiskey. He doesn’t want a woman messing with his life. He doesn’t trust them.

Then he sees her. Her hazel eyes reflect sadness and regret. He’s drawn to the loneliness that fills her up—it haunts him.

She’s his employer’s daughter. He knows he should stay away from her, but he can’t.  He wants to take her in his arms and protect her, but she won’t even talk to him.

Diablo’s not the type to give up. He wants her, and he’ll do everything he can to make her his.

Fallon Richardson can’t stand a man’s touch. Ever since her mother left her when she was a young girl, she’s been living in hell. Her father is the kingpin in illegal underground fighting. She tries to make herself inconspicuous so the men won’t notice her and the women won’t make fun of her, but it never works.

She hates being at the fights, but her father demands her presence.

Then she sees him across the room. His penetrating stare pulls her in no matter how hard she resists.

The tall, muscled man stirs feelings in her she has shut off for years. Her body wants him, yet, she can’t give herself to him. Men are cruel, animalistic, and not to be trusted. But the tattooed man has a softness beneath his rough exterior that speaks to her.

Then shadows from years ago emerge from the darkness, and soon Fallon doesn’t know who to trust. Her world is turned upside down, and she fears not only for her sanity but for her life.

Can Diablo and Fallon gain each other’s trust in time for him to protect her?

The Night Rebels MC series are standalone gritty romance novels. DIABLO is Book Three in the series. This book contains violence, strong language, sexual assault (not graphic), and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. 18+.

❤~🌟~❤❤~🌟~❤Review by Ashley C.❤~🌟~❤❤~🌟~❤

This is the 3rd book in the Night Rebels MC Series and let me tell you it did not disappoint. For me, this book was a bit of a slow burn, kinda like a good wine that you savoir, and that is was Diablo did.

This book was steady and had a great pace leading into the romance between Diablo and Fallon. I loved reading Fallon gain her confidence and becoming the woman she did. Diablo was the perfect man for Fallon because he wasn’t your average guy, he could see past the outside and truly see what was inside the person and that is exactly what Fallon needed.

Both of these characters had rough times that shaped them, but they did not let it own them, I loved how they preserved through life and found eachother.

I really enjoyed seeing this difference aspect of a biker, don’t get me wrong I love my men alpha and Diablo was that, but he was also a watcher and more reserved. He reminds me of a hunter who would watch they prey and set their plan before reacting. This book was the perfect mix of sexy and sweet and met all my needs. 4 stars for an great read and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Have you ever wanted something so badly it consumes you?

There is a fine line between needs and wants.

Deke Gavelson has wanted his Ravage cut for as long as he can remember. He’s earned it. He was born to be in this club. He’s not afraid to fight for his place, either.

Then she barreled into his world, and Deke suddenly desires something more than his rag and winning the next round.

Rylie Hollister has lived through hell and back. Each event makes her the strong, independent woman she is today. Until a bitter underground fighter threatens to turn her plans upside down.

These two are bound by their desires, but oh, how that changes when his intensity meets her passion.

❤~🌟~❤❤~🌟~❤Review by Ashley C.❤~🌟~❤❤~🌟~❤

This story started right off grabbing me and did not let me go until the end. This is the story of Deke, after reading the first book in the series, I knew he would need some redemption, but boy did this story go down a different path then I expected.

Deke was troubled as a teenager, and now he has more demons hiding within but has overcome so many of them. Rylie is the perfect match for Deke in so many ways.  The both had experiences that change who they were but helped shape them into the persons they become.

I loved the fact that Rylie was kick ass… I want to be her, she made my lady bits hot with her kicking ass. Deke, let’s just say I want to lick ice cream off of him lol.

This book also touches on some major issues, and they were addressed well without being over the top or being too dismissive of them. I loved that we were also able to see how the rest of the gang in the Ravage MC family was doing. I cannot wait to see what the next story holds. 5 stars for a read that gripped me the beginning.

ready1.jpg

Cleo Hill is a married woman, in love with a man she’s never really known—her husband, whom she hasn’t seen in eleven years.

Paxton “Torch” Hill is a Notorious Devil, a man who’s been wrestling with his personal demons since before he knew the horrors of war.

When a threat against his club means danger could be lurking around his estranged wife’s door, Paxton is determined to protect her. Yet, one look at the woman he left behind, and he knows his plans are about to change.

The past is not an easy thing to forget, especially not for a woman scorned. While Cleo isn’t the innocent catch he once knew, there’s something about that rough and ready man she’s not sure she can deny.

After all—they promised each other forever.

★⋰⋱☆☆⋰⋱★★⋰⋱☆☆⋰⋱★Review by Ashley C.★⋰⋱☆☆⋰⋱★★⋰⋱☆☆⋰⋱★

This is book 5 in the Notorious Devils series, but my first read of any in this specific series. Overall this was a really good read, I will admit, it would have been better if I had read the others in the series, which I am going to do, but overall it did not take away from the story.

Cleo and Hill were married young, and as we find out love cannot always conquer all at first. This was a great second chance story. There were times that Hill aka Torch had me pulling out my hair, but Cleo did not disappoint and she stood her ground and made him work back into her good graces and back into her heart.

I think one of my favorite things about this book was their journey through their second chance. I loved that it wasn’t easy and that it was work and it made the ending all the more worth it. I learned to love torch as Cleo learned to love him again through everything they went through. I cannot wait to see what else happens to these Notorious Devils! 4 stars for a great read.

#NewRelease Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone #Standalone #Heat&Sweet #ContemporaryRomance


Our Review: 

I love, love, love Hot Cop, a RomCom loaded with sweet and heat. 

Livia Ward is sure that her recent 29th birthday signals the beginning of the end and she is getting old, too old. She has sworn off men, but doesn’t want to give up yet on all of her dreams, like having a family of her own. Liv has trouble saying anything but yes, Officer from the moment she sees ‘Neighborhood Hot Cop’, Chase Kelly. 

“His lip curls up on one side, and I know he’s considering. Damn, what I’d give to have a peek at the naughty imaginings going on inside his mind, because I know they’re naughty from the gleam in his eye. Very naughty.”
Chase is amazing!! Off the charts hot. He can dirty talk til your panties melt and your kindle overheats!! He is ready and willing to say yes to just about anything Liv asks of him!
“I do not think of myself as a superhero,” he says emphatically. 

I stare at him, skeptical. “Really? You don’t?” 

“No!” 

“Not even a little? With your superhero badge and your superhero gun and your superhero nightstick.” 

He waggles his brows. “Well, yes with the superhero nightstick.” 

Hot Cop is funny and hot and swoony and still manages to get into your heart and pack an emotional punch! 
5Stars! 

-Diane- 


Filthy, fun, and filled with heart. Hot Cop is going on my re-read shelf.”–Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

 Hot Cop, an all-new sexy, standalone from New York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige and USA Today Bestseller Sierra Simone is available now!!!

 Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

 From NYT Bestselling Author, Laurelin Paige and USA Today Bestselling Author, Sierra Simone comes a steamy contemporary romantic follow-up to last year’s bestseller P*rn Star.

 You have the right to remain sexy.

 Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed.

 You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm.

 If you have trouble…don’t worry, I’m a bit of an expert in that department.

 There’s nothing ‘thin’ about my blue line, if you catch my drift, and trust me, I know how to put those handcuffs to good use.

***

Livia Ward wants a baby before she’s thirty. And even though Officer Chase Kelly is exactly the kind of cocky jerk this librarian has sworn off, he is undeniably hot. Both of them think they can give each other what they want–a few nights of fun for Officer Kelly, a no-strings baby for Livia–but this hot cop is about to learn that sex, babies, and love don’t always play by the rules. 


Excerpt:

I’m at the steakhouse fifteen minutes early, which is on time in Chase Kelly’s book. I’ve never been late for work or a date a single time in my life; in fact, I’ve always been early, which is a point of pride for me. And Livia walks in at seven on the dot, something that endears me to her immensely, although the moment I register that I, Officer Kelly, am charmed, my mind goes blank.

Just blank.

There is nothing but her.

She walks in on heels that make her legs a mile long, her long hair down in a tumult of soft waves. The maître d’ helps her take off her checkered wool coat, and then I.

Am.

Speechless.

My heart hammers up in my throat as the blood pools deep in my groin. She’s wearing a bright red dress—so fucking short that I’d be able to finger her easily if we were in a booth, which we tragically aren’t. The red sets off the warm undertones of her bronze skin, highlights the deep brown of her eyes. The lines of it hug the delectable curves of her tits, which are just small enough that she can get away without wearing a bra.

My cock thickens as she begins walking toward me, and I can verify that she is definitely not wearing a bra. Oh God, what if she’s not wearing panties either?

I bite back a groan and push back my chair to greet her as she comes to our table, tugging the hem of my sweater down in one smooth move as I unfold myself to help disguise the effect her presence has on me.

As I step forward to greet her, I notice the color high in her cheeks and the way her teeth dig into the soft coral of her bottom lip.  

She looks nervous.

That gives me pause. I don’t mind a woman meeting me cold or shy or overly eager, I don’t even mind a case of the first date jitters—since first dates are pretty much all I go on, I see a lot of those.

But nervous—truly nervous—that bothers me a little. Do I make her feel unsafe? Is it my size? My job?

In a split second, I change gears. I can be patient when it comes to the Kelly Trio, and I find that the idea of wooing my nervous little librarian on date after date doesn’t sound tiresome at all…it sounds delightful, actually. A challenge. A test to see if I’m worthy enough to remove all traces of trepidation from her face and fill her expression with eagerness and surrender instead.

And get more time with this fierce, sweet bookworm all to myself.

I lean in to kiss her cheek, careful to angle our bodies so that I don’t press against her with six feet, two hundred pounds of hungry cop. Instead, I anchor her with a firm hand at her elbow, pleased to feel the goose bumps that spread underneath my touch. And then I brush my lips against her cheek, making sure she can feel them, making sure she gets just the tiniest brush of my scruff as I accidentally-on-purpose slide my jaw against hers as I pull away.

She shivers.

I look down into her eyes as I straighten up, and I’m suddenly aware that I’m supporting a lot of weight in my hand, as if her knees are weak from my kiss.

Well done, Officer Good Times!

Her eyes are wide, the pupils so blown and her irises so dark that her eyes are just huge liquid wells of want, and I feel a familiar tug in my groin knowing that I put that look there.

“I forget how big you are,” she murmurs, her head tilted up to look into my face.

I give her my biggest grin and open my mouth, but she cuts me off before I can say it, shaking her head. “I know, I know. I walked right into that one.”

But the ghost of a smile flits across her lips as I help her into her seat and push in her chair.

When I sit across from her and we start looking at our menus, I notice the smile has vanished and the nervous look is back, along with a determined set to her shoulders. The combination of uneasiness and backbone intrigues and worries me at the same time.

“I don’t know what Megan told you,” I say, “but I don’t bite.”

She looks up from the menu, her teeth back to digging into the plump flesh of her bottom lip.

“Well,” I amend, staring at her mouth, “sometimes I do bite. But only when I really, really want to.”

About Laurelin:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
