Review: Wake Up Married Series by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths (Wake Up Married #1-#6)

Patrick's throat works convulsively. "I trusted you."
"I know. Please, Patrick. Please." Will hates the way Patrick's shoulders slump. He hates the look of defeat on his face. He hates most that he's put it there. "I don't want to hurt you."
"You already did."
The Wake Up Married series, which I've been calling the Will & Patrick series, has been on my to-be-read list since I first heard about it at the end of last year. When the opportunity to read and review not just one but all six books, I jumped on it because when it comes to books, I don't pass up on something as fantastic as this. I was able to get through the entire serial in one sitting and loved every single page! Now, I'm not a fan of serials because they tend to test my patience (and if you're familiar with my reviews, you've heard me explain that I&…

Review: Out Rider by Lindsay McKenna (Jackson Hole #11)

Note: This ARC was provided by Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.
Out Rider is the eleventh novel in the Jackson Hole series by bestselling author Lindsay McKenna. I haven't read any of the previous releases from the series--though I'm quite curious about them after having finished this latest one--but you can still read this as a standalone without feeling as if you're missing something. Here we have Devorah McGuire, a former marine who now works for the US Forest Service as a ranger. She moves to Jackson Hole, Wyoming in hopes of putting as much distance as possible between her and her past. She then meets Sloan Rankin, a man who knows his way around the Grand Tetons National Park and mentors Dev to the best of his abilities. There's a chemistry between them that neither can deny. Dev has already survived one traumatizing experience with a man she thought she could trust before and Sloan has his own set of scars left behind by a failed marriage. If they decid…

Book Spotlight: Swerve by Sherilee Gray

Swerve(Boosted Hearts #1)by Sherilee GrayDate Released: April 26, 2016
About SwerveHe’ll risk it all for one more night… 
When Hugh Colton’s father ran off, leaving him with a pile of gambling debts and a crime boss demanding repayment in stolen cars, his options were limited. Now his life’s on hold, and the last thing he needs to be worrying about is a distressed redhead in a Poison Ivy costume. He sure as hell shouldn’t be rescuing her in the car he’s just boosted—or asking her to come home with him. But a thief like him can’t offer more, no matter how much he wants to.
Everyone either leaves or is taken away, at least that’s all graphics designer Shay Freestone has ever known. And after a confidence shattering, career destroying break-up, she’s sworn off relationships forever. So it’s a good thing this raw, bearded, mountain of a man isn’t her type. Yet as one reckless hot night leads to another, their casual, no-strings affair starts to feel like so much more.

Review: Swerve by Sherilee Gray (Boosted Hearts #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
A bad boy and good girl falling for each other is one of my favorite romance tropes and the book that works that theme quite well is Swerve, the Boosted Hearts series starter from author Sherilee Gray. I'd have to say this is probably my top bad-boy-and-good-girl romances this year and it also happens to be my favorite Sherilee Gray, whose Axle Alley Vipers series was a fun read and one that I intend to finish via the third and final book this weekend. Swerve is sweet and sexy and leaves you fully satisfied by the time you get to the end. It's about twenty-five-year-old three-job part-timer Shay Freestone and thirty-one-year-old car thief and mechanic Hugh Colton. They're both doing whatever is necessary to keep their lives moving forward--albeit she chooses to do so by juggling several jobs and he's forced to boost vehicles in order to pay off his father's amassed deb…

Finding London(Flawed Heart #1)by Ellie WadeDate Released: April 25, 2016
About Finding London London Wright thought she’d been in love before, but she hadn’t—not even close. 
Then, she met him.
Rugged and gorgeous, Loïc Berkeley, is everything she’s ever wanted. Getting him to notice her was a challenge, but keeping his love is proving to be more difficult.
London is used to getting what she wants, so loving someone like Loïc is a humbling and somewhat terrifying experience. For everything she has in her life, he’s the one thing she can’t bear to lose.
Loïc never wanted love. He views it as an unneeded distraction that always ends in disappointment, causing nothing but pain.
Then, he met her.
Spoiled but witty and breathtakingly beautiful, London Wright is his undoing. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he knew his life would never be the same. Though he tries to fight it, he finds himself falling for her.
Loïc has lived a life full of sorrow, but finding London brings him rare happ…

Finding London is the first novel in author Ellie Wade's Flawed Hearts series and is my first read from her as well. This is the story of twenty-two-year-old college graduate London Wright and twenty-five-year-old Army personnel Loïc Berkeley. London is used to getting what she wants, when she wants, and from the moment she glimpses Loïc in his fatigues sitting behind the wheel of his truck, she knows who wants. Unfortunately, Loïc isn't like the other guys she's met before. He doesn't give in to her flirting and turns her down more than once, making it clear he isn't interested in a date or anything else. But the thing is, he is interested but he's never been one to date and has never been emotionally involved with a woman. London may have captured Loïc's attention, but getting him to overcome his issues and insecurities and commit to her proves to be a formida…

An Excerpt from Marry Screw Kill “Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees. 
He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing. 
I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?”…

Review: Marry Screw Kill by Liv Morris

Note: This ARC was provided by TRSoR Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Marry Screw Kill is a standalone erotic romance novel from author Liv Morris and is about Harlow Masters, a young woman who loses the most important person in her life--her mother--and ends up in the hospital under the care of a doctor named James Elliott. Within months, she's not only living under his roof but is engaged to be married to him. Then everything changes when James's nephew, Sinclair Elliott, stays with them. Harlow is caught between two very different men--one who has been there to take care of her and provide her with everything she may need and the other who cares for her and is the epitome of everything she wants. There are three players in this story, but there is no love triangle nor any cheating.
From the moment I read the blurb, I knew this was going to be an intriguing story, but it also surprised me in terms of the directions it chose to go to. Harlow and James's relatio…

A Heart of Timeby Shari J. RyanRelease Date: May 18, 2016Cover Design: MadHat Books
About A Heart of Time “Time of death...” the doctor said.
I won’t forget that moment I looked over at Ellie—the paleness of her once rosy cheeks, the blue hue coating her perfect lips—the woman I had been with since we were five years old. My wife. My best friend...and the mother to our newborn baby girl.
You promised me we would be together forever, I wanted to tell her. She gave me her forever, I told myself. Her forever just ended at twenty-five.
“You need to say your goodbyes...” the doctor said.
How do I say goodbye to the one person in my life I could never say goodbye to?
My body is numb, and my heart hurts. Hurts like someone just ripped it out of my chest. Which is ironic ...
“We are go…
