About Bring Me You (book one)
Pro quarterback Ethan Christopher thought he had found his home when he met rock musician Mia Devereux. She was the welcomed distraction in his football-focused life.
Things may not have been perfect. Their individual careers made being together difficult. Her touring. His away schedule. As her success grew, they spent more extended periods apart.
But at the end of the day, he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Only her.
When Mia met Ethan, she felt a connection unlike any she’d ever felt. She gave him more of herself than she thought was even possible.
But she knew it wasn’t enough. There was a lot she didn’t share, couldn’t give him.
An event two decades in her past made sure of that.
Those demons that she’d so carefully tucked away wanted out. As Mia struggled with the …

Review: Never Over You Boxed Set by Ryleigh Andrews (Never Over You #1-#3)

Note: This ARC was provided by Sassy Savvy Fab PR in exchange for an honest review.
Never Over You is a contemporary romance series by Ryleigh Andrews composed of three full-length novels--Bring Me You, Still Into You, and Never Over You--and has a short story that's part of a holiday-themed anthology, Hot for the Holidays. The boxed set, which is what I was able to read and review, includes all three full-length stories and bonus scenes that fans of the series will enjoy, especially the alternative or what-if scenes that I'm sure we've all wondered about when we read books, thinking what would have happened to the story had one or more of the characters done or said something differently. 
The series covers the ups and downs in the relationship of one couple, professional football player Ethan Christopher and rock musician Mia Devereux, over the span of several years. These two appear to have the odds stacked against them from the very beginning, what with being insanely b…

About Crimson Cove Ten years ago Janiver stole a kiss from the meanest boy in school.
He never forgot.
Senior year.
One minute before the tardy bell rang, Bane Illes would slip through the door.
He never smiled.
He never spoke.
Each day, that dark, dangerous boy gave Janiver Benoit a glance. And when she could not take another quiet stare, or the warmth that look sent over her skin, she took from Bane something he’d never give freely—one lingering, soul knocking kiss.
Ten years later, her family needs her, and Janiver will have to face the one person she promised herself she’d never see again.
The dangerous wizard that might make leaving Crimson Cove the last thing she wants to do.

Review: First Touch by Laurelin Paige (First and Last #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by St. Martin's Press in exchange for an honest review.

When before he'd been a blustering wind that I'd chased and sometimes was lucky enough to catch–or be caught up in–now we were both still, coming together on our own accord. We originated in this. Everything now was new. A start. A beginning. The brush of his hand across my cheek, though he'd done it many times before, it was as if this time was the first. His whispers were unheard whispers. The gasps at the back of my throat were sounds I'd never made. The way my knees buckled, how he pulled me tighter against him, the sighs between us–all new.
This was our first surrender.
First embrace.
First kiss.
First touch.
Oh. My. Goodness... I was practically speechless after finishing First Touch, the first in the First and Last duet from bestselling author Laurelin Paige, and I dare say, her best work so far. It's naughty and dirty but it's also intensely intriguing and is proof t…

Review: Untouchable Darkness by Rachel Van Dyken (The Dark Ones #2)

"I love you more than I should...I love you in ways I shouldn't. I desire you in ways that are hard to comprehend. And the love I feel for you is the scariest thing I've ever admitted out loud, to anyone. Because once those words are released, you can't take them back. You could try, but love weaves a thread of its own and once you confess with your mouth, your soul has no choice but to follow."
Cassius is King, the Dark One that the rest of the immortals bow down to, whether they like it or not. But after the gift that Stephanie bestowed upon him, Cassius has now made a deal...with an Angel. He has thirty days to prove his love for Stephanie, and he has to do so as a human. Emotions are something that have become foreign to Cassius as a Dark One, but now they bombard him and he feels the very limitations that he used to loathe in humans, the aches and pains that never used to touch him before. Being human also means he isn't immortal, so how can the King of …
