Release Day! LICKED by Brooke Blaine (@BrookeBlaine1) + Reviews, Teasers, Excerpt, Book Trailer & Giveaway!
When I think about romantic comedies I think about great movies like Pretty Woman and How to lose a guy in ten days. These movies I can watch over and over again without pause! These movies bring me joy and solace in a crazy un- romantic comedy world, so when I read LICKED I was seriously overjoyed and doing a rom-com cartwheel and happy clap because this book is so, SO perfect when it comes to what I want in a movie!

I'm so in love with this book!
Brooke Blaine serves up rom-com perfection with this witty, get the memo, sexy as hell book!
I'm sending a copy to all of my female hookers!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
When it comes to romantic comedies, I tend to be picky. Romance for me is a given. It’s a must. I crave it when I read. But add in the funny? It either is or it isn’t. Some rom coms try to hard, while others not at all. But Licked? It had everything I need in a romantic comedy! Not only was it funny. But it was witty, creative, and I was never bored. Brooke Blaine has easily mastered how to successfully execute a true romantic comedy.
Ryleigh Phillips owns a successful ice creamery and bar. And not just an ordinary one. The names of these flavors of ice cream and drinks will have you giggling and laughing out loud. And often. While her career and business is booming, her love life isn’t. Until the night of her high school reunion once she comes in contact with her long time crush, Cameron Mathis. Through him, she also meets Hunter Morgan, who later becomes her contractor as she is doing renovations at her store. Suddenly Ryleigh finds herself falling. And not in the direction she expected.
Before you go thinking, omg a love triangle. This is SO much more than that. While Ryleigh has her choice of two amazing men, this is not the average story. Brooke Blaine puts her own spin on things. I will not get too much into the plot, as the reader is to experience the story. But I will say I was #teamHunter the moment I met him. Not only is he hot, but he knows exactly what he wants. And Cameron? He was sweet and endearing and I could easily see how Ryleigh had crushed on him since high school! But as we get older, we change. And Ryleigh is no longer that quirky high school teenager. How does a girl choose between two amazing men? Or did her heart already know the one it’s always belonged to?
I absolutely adored the writing style of Licked. The author effortlessly weaves a story that keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end. You are instantly placed within the pages and you want to be friends with the characters. You get to experience their highs and lows. I found that I wanted to be within Ryleigh’s group of friends. They were hilarious. I believe this not only shows the author’s talent in writing a story, but that also demonstrates her craftsmanship in strong character development.
Licked was such a fun reading experience. It was lighthearted, swoony, and one of those reads that you smile while reading the entire time. The characters will have you laughing out loud. Not only is the story funny, but there are also some sexy times. I am so excited for what’s to come of this series and the characters. Brooke Blaine has definitely placed herself on my buy anything she writes shelf. I highly recommend Licked if you want a true and genuine romantic comedy that will remind you of what it means to truly fall in love.
New-to-me authors scare me. I'm a bit of a chicken and like to stick to things I know. Will I get their humour? Will their writing be easy to read? Will they pull off a great angsty break-up where you're just dying for them to get back together? Will the reunion be worth it? Well, I say to myself now, DON'T BE A CHICKEN SHIT! This book was GREAT! Brooke did not disappoint at all!
So we have the high school crush, Cameron, that Ryleigh has been in love for for years. Then there is his best friend, Hunter. Ones a white collar gentleman who says all the right things. The other is a blue collar hottie, simply irresistible in my opinion. Oh how to choose?!
Even though the book isn't named "Licked" for their first intimate scene, it surely could have been. Wowie. That was HOT. When the clothes start coming off, holy shit hot chemistry happens.
It takes a very admirable man to step down in the name of love. Which kind of makes you wish that this time, that love was for him. I think either way, you can't go wrong choosing Cameron or Hunter. But chemistry is chemistry, and that kind, is not the kind you can build over time.
This story was full of cute, sweet and hot lines and loads a sugary treats. It has a great group of supporting characters, of whom I hope to get some more of in the future. Especially Quinn. She has me intrigued already! You can't write great friends without us wanting their story too. Or can you? :( And that will hopefully mean there will be more Ryleigh, Cameron and Hunter as well! Because as perfect as the ending was, I always need more.
I tugged at the edge of my apron in an attempt to avoid the three pairs of eyes staring bug-eyed at me. “And then he walked me to my car.”
“And then you…?” Shayne asked.
“Went home,” I said.
“Wait a minute, can we talk about the fact that he made you sleep on his couch?” Paige’s eyebrows were raised up to practically her hairline. “I’m sorry, but in what fucking universe is that acceptable? Why didn’t you call Quinn to pick you up?”
“He didn’t make me, geez. He passed out and it was late, and I thought maybe…you know. Morning sex.”
Shayne cocked an eyebrow. “And did that happen?”
“Well, no. Hunter made me coffee, and then Cameron woke up and…that’s it.”
“Wait,” Quinn interrupted. “You slept in an apartment with two guys and both of them had you sleeping on the couch? Jesus, Ryleigh, it’s against man-code for that to happen. Did you wear a chastity belt last night or something?”
I groaned, my head falling into my hands. Of course the girls would give me a hard time. I’d been talking up tackling Cameron at the reunion for weeks, so my body wasn’t the only one feeling let down.
Still, I was seriously regretting inviting them over for a powwow at my shop during our off hours.
“I think I need another shot of vodka in my Feisty Ho-bag now.” Paige pushed her glass stemware toward me, and I grabbed a liquor bottle from behind the bar and tipped some into her glass.
Boozy shakes. They were the bread and butter of Licked during the brunch and evening hours, and the main reason for the expansion next door. I glanced at the black tarp hanging over the doorway that led to the space I’d bought a few months ago and sighed. Construction was running behind, and it was too late to hire another company if I wanted to keep the launch date set.
And I had to keep the date set.
“So are you seeing him again?” Shayne asked, dunking her cherry through the layers of baklava bits and whipped cream on top of her Nibble My Nuts shake. “I will totally get involved if I need to.”
No doubt she’d be successful. She basically ran one of the top matchmaking companies in the city, not that you’d know it from her degrading pay scale. Her boss was a fucking nightmare, but Shayne was convinced she had to pay her dues.
“I don’t need your expert skills this time, but thank you. He’s got my number, so…we’ll see.”
“You can’t just wait around for a guy to call,” she said.
“I’m not waiting. I’ve got all that”—I gestured to the ugly tarp that hid the mess behind it—“to deal with, so I’m actually quite busy at the moment.”
The three of them gave each other “the look.” You know, the one that said, We’ve got to help our poor little friend get laid so she doesn’t end up gorging on the ice cream and boozy shakes she makes and be relegated to spinsterhood.
“Guys,” I said, placing my hands on the counter as I stood in front of them. “I’m not on my way to spinsterhood. I just have priorities.”
“I’m sure you could squeeze Cameron Mathis in,” Quinn said with a wink. “Get it? Squeeze him in…”
“More like blow off the dust, grab a key, unlock that shit, and pray there are no bats,” Paige agreed.
Oh for fuck’s sake. “All right, no more booze for either of you.”

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her â€˜quiet time.â€™ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas. Flash Point is Brookeâ€™s debut solo novel, and she is the co-author of the erotic serial, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released on November 11th, 2015. If youâ€™d like to get in touch with her, sheâ€™s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone thatâ€™s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
Release Day Blast - Stealing Rose (The Fowler Sisters #2) by @MsMonicaMurphy ~ Ava and Kat's Double Review
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
Do you ever read a book just at the right time? For me, Stealing Rose was that book. I was after something light, sexy and hot. And Monica Murphy provided all three.
Rose is the youngest of the Fowler sisters and in need of a break from the family business. In Cannes, Rose decides to be reckless for once and that’s when she bumps into smooth talker Caden. Rose puts her moment of madness behind her and travels on to London to visit Violet, only to find it’s a small world after all and the mysterious Caden also happens to be there.
After a sexy bathroom meet, a clandestine, whirlwind romance ensues and I loved watching the two characters grow. Rose was the quiet girl, always going with the flow and never speaking out at the company. During her time with Caden, she slowly began to find her voice and realised it was time for her to do what she wanted to do.
"I sort of like how mysterious Caden is. I know nothing beyond his first name, the taste of his lips, and the wonderful things he can do to me with his fingers. And I'm thinking maybe that's plenty enough."
Caden was a bad boy. So much so, I really did wonder how Monica would swing it that I would fall for him and want him to be the guy for Rose. Of course, Monica nailed it. I loved Caden, his history wasn’t squeaky clean and if it was one of my girlfriends I’d be telling her to run a mile, but it’s fiction and for this story I went with it because I felt the connection between the characters and wanted them to experience happiness they both rightly deserved.
"He marked me. It felt so primitive and possessive, seeing those fingerprints on my skin. I've never been a man's profession before. But I feel like his. And he feels like mine."
I finished this book in a day, I really didn’t want to put it down and that was greatly due to the writing. I find Monica’s books always easy to read and I know I’m going to get a hot romance with a whole load of heart.
"You reached right into my chest and took my heart like it fully belonged to you. And I think it does."
If you loved Violet’s story, you will adore Rose’s and I for one can’t wait to see what’s in store for Lily, the wild child, in book three.
Sexy. Fun. 1Click it.
Rose, an heir to the Fowler Cosmetic empire, where expensive jewelry goes along with the high class parties. Caden, the mysterious new man on the scene, with eyes for all things expensive and shiney.
My first thought after finding out what Caden's profession was...how is this possibly going to work between them?! Are the people in Rose's life really going to be able to accept someone like him? Can he change? How exactly will he make that change? It seemed a little impossible to me. At first...
One of the things I loved most about this book, was the passion they had. It was vibrant. It was explosive. Every damn time these two touch each other it was like fireworks. Super damn hot stuff, the things these two brought to the table. Even with all of that, there's always the question, is that enough? Do they want more than the physical relationship they share? Things are about to get real complicated as they come to realize their feelings for each other. Therein lies the catch...
Caden knew he wasn't good enough. Rose knew he needed to change. You can't exactly take a guy like that home to daddy. Rose made him want to be a better man. An honest man worthy of what was needed to ensure her future was stable and that she wasn't ashamed of the things he had done. And again I asked, HOW IS THIS EVER GOING TO WORK?! So the man did what the man needed to do.
Now, even though Rose could have found him and told him what she should have, she didn't. It was by chance their paths crossed again to find each other. I wonder if that hadn't of happened, how long would she have waited to find him? I really hope in her heart she would have done it as soon as possible. But luckily, she had other people making it happen for her. And as soon as Caden heard the news, he went running. There was no way a man like that would wait another minute for the woman he loved.
I thought this was a great story. Again the passion is what held me in there. It was great to see as Rose come out of her shell and watch Caden become an honourable man. I'm looking forward to see what Monica has in store for us with Lily's story next!

I’m in trouble. Again. And instead of facing my problems head on, I’ve run away. Far away this time, and no one can catch me—not my two younger sisters, Violet and Rose, not my father, my grandmother, or that witch Pilar who wants to take control of my family’s cosmetics company. Now I’m in Hawaii, enjoying the sun and the sand and water, where nobody knows the hot mess known as Lily Fowler. And I’m loving every minute of it.
But someone is watching me. Following me. He’s gorgeous. And soon we’re talking, and against all my instincts, I reveal bits and pieces of myself to Max. It feels good, though I know he can’t be the man for me. These sudden feelings we share are way too complicated, too fraught, too intense.
Then everything explodes and I’m forced to return home. My intentions have always been true, but now everyone’s mad at me. I don’t know who to turn to anymore . . . except to Max. He’s who I want to trust. But I’m not so sure I should. Maybe it’s worth the risk—and what-ifs be damned. . . .
Title: Breathe (Colorado Mountain #4)
Author: Kristen Ashley
Genre: Adult Contempory Romance
Paperback Release Date: August 26, 2014
There's nothing like the first time . . .
In Carnal, Colorado, Faye Goodknight is the town's quiet, shy librarian. She may also be Carnal's last remaining virgin. For years, Faye has had a crush on Chace Keaton, but the gorgeous cop has always been unattainable. She's resigned to live contentedly with only her books for company—until Faye suddenly meets Chace alone in the woods...
Chace doesn't think he's the good guy everyone believes him to be. He's made a lot of choices he regrets, including denying his feelings for Faye. Through his choices, he's come to believe the pretty librarian is too good for him, but after their time in the woods, Chace realizes that she may be his last chance for redemption. Soon, their long simmering desires grow to a burning passion. Yet always casting a shadow over their happiness is Chace's dark past...
I continued my Kristen Ashley marathon by diving straight into Breathe. When I discovered at the end of Lady Luck, that it was in fact Chace’s turn to get a story, I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t sure if he was a good guy or not and I didn’t really want to read about him. Well out of curiosity, I read the sneak peek at the end of Ty’s story and I was hooked, I wanted to know more about the shy librarian, Faye, and how she captured Chace.
I immediately liked Faye’s character; I wondered how KA would portray a twenty nine year old virgin without being cliché. I thought this was done really well and it actually made me want her and Chace be together even more. Faye harboured a crush for the small town cop for over thirteen years and subconsciously or not, she was saving herself for him.
Chace had many demons to excise. The police department he dedicated his life to was full of crooked cops and Chase felt guilty about not taking action sooner, he also had the death of his ex-wife on his hands. There was no love lost between Misty and Chace but he made it his mission to track down her murderer to find peace for both himself and Misty’s memory.
I loved to witness the change in Faye as the story progressed. At the beginning, Faye was shy and insecure. She didn’t feel worthy of a guy like Chace but as their relationship blossomed, Chace proved to Faye that she was his equal and worthy of his love. It was a pleasure to see her confidence grow.
“I’d walk to the ends of the earth hand in hand with Chace Keaton and all he had to do to get me to do it was kiss me deep, smile at me, hold my hand and call me baby.”
“Everything about you is hot, honey. You got nothin’ to be embarrassed, ashamed or worried about because you’re the best I ever had. All of you. All we share. The best kiss. The best orgasm. The best lovemaking. And seriously the best fuck.”
“I didn’t look like the shy, virgin, town librarian anymore. I looked like the stylish town librarian who was regularly getting banged by the town’s hottest cop.”
My favourite part of the storyline was the young boy in need of help that frequently visited Faye’s library. Malachi brought out the caring side of both Faye and Chace but he also added mystery and intrigue to the story. My heart ached as the story was coming to a close and I felt so much for these characters, it really was bittersweet.
I’m beginning to notice the formula to this series, and although the books share many similarities, I recognise it as classic KA and I find myself searching out one of these books whenever I am in need of a traditional alpha.
I’m getting into the swing of Kristen’s writing and also the lack of a connective at the beginning of questions that have me rereading the sentences to understand the intent. However, those quirks are minor points and they don’t halt my enjoyment of the story and in actual fact I have found myself becoming quite the KA fan.
Unexpectedly, Breathe is my favourite of the series so far. I just felt for Faye and Chace from the beginning and felt they both deserved a break in life. Chace was this big tough cop, but underneath he didn’t feel worthy and I loved the way in which Faye showed him otherwise.
“He pulled her even closer knowing one more thing. He wasn’t falling anymore for Faye Goodknight. He wasn’t halfway there. He was gone.”
“Now, after six fuckin’ years of feelin’ buried under shit, I see it through your eyes and finally feel clean. For the first time in six years, I feel free.”
Breathe can be read as a standalone, although you will want to read about the other couples as soon as you meet them. This book pulled at my heartstrings, had me sobbing into my pillow but in the end it left me with a huge smile on my face. I recommend you read this one!
Chace is the town hero. A cop who helped cleaned up the corrupt Carnal Police Department. And even though had been through hell with the life he previously lead and death of his wife, he always had Faye in the back of his mind. For much longer than she had ever known. When he was finally free to have real love, he went and got his real love and loved her like no other.
Their attraction to one another is what brought them together, but the compassion they both had towards one special little boy is what bonded them together and fueled their relationship further. The determination they had in making his life better is what melted my heart as a reader. Of course there is the usual falling in love, misunderstandings, mending the parts of their hearts they thought were already healed. Of course might as well throw in a disappearance and the chase to the rescue before it ends in disaster...Breathe Faye. And I even got a little giddy when a character from Rock Chicks showed up in the story, so freaking good! I mean I kind of knew something was up with Faye's internet friends, or rather "band of misfits" as Chace calls them, but I wasn't expecting that.
Usually with a book I fall in love with one MC more than the other, but with these two I loved them just the same. How could you not, with two equally lovely and compassionate people? And even though they are not real, they made me want to be a better person and look out for those less fortunate and in harms way. Any thing, no matter how small, just to make someone else's life a little bit better. The whole story of Jeremiah (Miah, Malchi...yes he has a few names) touched my heart and made me sad and also hopeful that someone, somewhere out there also looks out for kids like him the same way Faye and Chace did for him. The way Miah looked up to them...so, so sweet and heart-warming. And his school speech...brought tears to my eyes, messy sad and happy tears mixed together!
"You go down on me, you get geek TV. I go down on you, you watch one of my programs."
"It's not classified information, Chace. You can read about it on Wookieepedia."
"Did they vow on Luke Skywalker's light saber that they'd stand down?"
"I held out for a hero and I don't give a frak if you don't think you're one. I know you are and even if you weren't one to the whole town, you're one to me and you can take that to the fraking bank."
Those are just a few of my favourite quotes, they made me laugh, love and cry. I thought this was such a great story and fabulous edition to the Colorado Mountain series!

Launch Day Blitz: Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain #3) by Kristen Ashley. Kat and Av'a's Reviews, Giveaway & Excerpt.
Title: Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain #3)
Author: Kristen Ashley
Genre: Adult Contempory Romance
Paperback Release Date: July 29, 2014
Ty Walker was wrongly imprisoned and for the five years he was inside, he honed his plan so when he gets out, he has nothing but vengeance on his mind.
But then he walks straight to stylish, leggy, beautiful, goofy Lexie Berry and he suddenly has something else to think about. He knows within seconds he wants her and within days he can love her but with the filth that was flung at him clinging; he also knows he can’t have her.
Since birth, Lexie Berry has been Lady Luck’s favorite toy and because of that, Lexie is cautious. But within a day, she senses Ty is something special. With her luck, however, she can’t trust it. Then she finds out what was done to Ty and she’s willing to do anything to make it right.
Even what Ty will never forgive her for doing.
Ty clings to vengeance and Lexie goes all out to give him back the time he lost. But Ty is battling demons within and they’re up against dirty cops and criminals who will stop at nothing to sway Lady Luck against them. All Ty and Lexie have is hope Lady Luck will finally swing their way.
He didn’t speak but his eyes changed, one of those changes I didn’t know, didn’t yet understand but this one was meaningful. They all were but this one was more meaningful than the rest.
A lot more.
And I couldn’t stop myself, his eyes so close, that look in them, my arms moved from around his shoulders, my hands framed his face, I leaned up and whispered, “Thank you.”
Then I pressed my lips to his.
I meant to give him a soft kiss of gratitude. This was not to say I didn’t want to give him a long, hard, wet kiss of something else. And just what I wanted to give him and what that would lead to had also been filling my head space the last couple of days but that wasn’t where I intended to go just then. Not yet. Not with a house full of people downstairs waiting to eat fried chicken.
But when my mouth hit his, he didn’t give me the chance to give him a soft kiss of gratitude.
Instantly, his fingers slid up into my hair, cupping my head, and his mouth opened over mine making a demand.
Mine complied. His tongue spiked into my mouth and I liked the taste of it, I hadn’t had it in what seemed like a decade, I missed it and he tasted so fucking good my body pressed into his and not just because his arm around me grew super tight.
Then I was twisted, on my back in what was, I noted vaguely and was unbelievably happy for, a bed. His torso was on mine, his hips beside mine, his long, heavy leg moved to tangle with mine as his tongue moved in my mouth. I wrapped one arm around his back, one around his shoulders, my hand moving to cup the back of his head and hold him to me.
God, he couldn’t kiss. He could kiss.
Lexie and Tate met when she was tasked to pick him up from his 5 year stint in prison (don't worry, he really didn't do it), a favour she was doing for a man, Martinez, who held people of her past over her head. What she didn't know, is that she was going to become Ty's wife as part of the deal. Now, one would freak the F out over that, but really, this was her only way to escape Martinez. Plus she was to get a sizeable payday out of the deal, not to mention some seriously serious bling. I'd be all in too, if not just for that, but to be able to look at that gorgeous man every day.
Now, if you really know me, you would know I'm a total man-thigh loving girl, so as soon as I read the part about his "enormous thighs", I was hooked on Ty. From his initial cave-man communication skills, his tell-it-how-it-is straight up attitude and the whole alpha bad-boy without really being a bad-boy at all...how could one not fall for all that? The words that fall out of that man's mouth is both hilarious and hot. He's guaranteed to put a smile on your face and butterflies in your belly.
"Your nightmare, mama, was my dream."
"Doesn't take a lotta energy to eat you, though."
I think Lexie is pretty kick-ass and her pet names for Ty are too cute. "There's a bitch in this town who needs a lesson and I'm the teacher." I suppose growing up as she did, gave her that kick-ass attitude. which is perfectly matched for Ty. It didn't take them long to fall for each other, but it's like they fell in love without really falling in love. It just happened without having to be said, you know it from all the little things they did for each other. The way others saw them through their eyes. It's kind of the sneak-up-on-you kind of love. Just how one would expect it to be with a pair like Ty and Lexie.
Of course a whole lotta shit goes down with conspiracies, lies and deception in relation to both Ty and Lexie. And when Lexie goes missing, shit hits the fan and Ty goes into full-blown protective alpha hero mode. You think it's one thing, but really I had no clue who was doing what. Which is great because I'm forever trying to nail down the plot in my head before it happens. It's nice when you get it all wrong and are surprised about the series of events unfolding.
My favourite parts are always when the heroine gets saved. Then you really get to watch just how much love they have for each other. It's always after the one you love is gone or in danger to really realize what greatness you had together. Ty and Lexie are the perfect couple. Oh and the epilogues! Good lord I love seeing their love grow and grow.
I really don't know what else to say about this book, other than READ IT! I fell hard for this book and really cannot get enough of Kristen's stories.
I think I was waiting on that one book, that one book that would make me fall head over heels for Kristen Ashley. Little did I know it wasn’t a book but rather a book boyfriend and his name was Ty. Oh how I loved Ty from the very first page and I didn’t sleep a wink until the very last!
Ty and Lexie don’t have the most conventional of introductions. Lexie thinks she’s to pick a strange guy up and deliver him where he wants to go, little does she know Ty is buying Lexie’s time for the foreseeable future. Ty has just been released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He’s hell bent on seeking revenge and Lexie will be his live-in alibi to prove his innocence when needed. But neither of the two expected to fall in love along the way.
I loved Lexie and Ty’s story. I was engrossed in the storyline of Ty’s wrongful incarceration and the circumstances surrounding it. Slowly, over the length of the story, I got to see the real Ty and couldn’t help but fall for him. He was a good man through and through and of course, it helped that he was rockin’ the sexy Alpha traits completely. I wasn’t the only one falling for his charm. Ty may have been a stranger but ever so slowly, Lexie discovered he was a diamond in the rough and just perfect for her.
“You’re far and away the most beautiful man I’ve met and it isn’t just that you have the looks and the body but it’s a whole lot more Ty Walker.”
Lexie had me laughing many times; she is my favourite KA heroine to date as I loved her sass. She didn’t grow up in a land of fairy tales so Lexie was under no illusions, but that made her strong, passionate and willing to stand up for herself. She was someone I wouldn’t mess with.
“So something has to give because there’s a bitch in this town who needs a lesson and I’m the teacher.”
“Shit, darlin’, remind me not to get on your bad side.” To which I turned my head to him immediately and said, “Don’t fuck over my husband, you’ll be fine.”
It was the slow bubbling romance that held me to this book, I loved reading about Ty and Lexie’s relationship growing into something more. From their very first night, when Ty fixed her bouquet to adding little touches around their house, the romantic in me was beaming all over the place. I loved every moment Ty and Lexie were together and the love they shared.
“Love you, Ty.” “Down to my bones, mama, right back at you.”
I am loving the world Kristen Ashley has created. At first, I was aware of the length of each book, 500 pages being the average, but now I get why they are so long. Not only are we getting to know the characters but the entire community too. I love all the supporting characters and the support they provide each other and it just makes me want to read on until the series end.
I am becoming accustomed to KA’s writing, the men tend not to pose questions, rather statements and I found myself having to reread a few sentences. The story was told mainly from Lexie’s point of view in first person, which I love, but I was also desperate for Ty’s point of view in this book. We did get it but it was told in third person and that did throw me, I wanted into Ty’s head. Having had the opportunity to ask Kristen Ashley in person about the point of view change, her answer was understandable. She isn’t a dude so she won’t attempt to write like one. I say that’s fair enough and I’ll come to terms with it eventually ;-)
Lady Luck was filled with twists, turns, drama and emotion. Lexie and Ty are my favourite couple to date. I love the dynamic between them and Lexie’s fire made her a girl after my own heart. I know I am late to the Kristen Ashley party but if you are a late bloomer like me, I say rectify this immediately!

Title: Sweet Dreams
Series: Colorado Mountain #2
Author: Kristen Ashley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Paperback Release Date: June 24, 2014
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.
After Lauren divorced her cheating husband, she wondered around the country and ended up in the small biker town of Carnal. Looking for nothing special, because as she had learned, nothing special could ever be found, she got a job as a waitress at the biker bar called Bubba’s and called the local motel her new home.
Tate is the part owner of Bubba’s. He’s also and ex pro-football player, biker, ex-cop turned bounty hunter, and of course all kinds of hot alpha male.
I must admit it took me a long time to get to like Tate, as in well over half the book. He had a temper and when he got mad said all sorts of crappy things Lauren. I am so not a fan of verbal cut-downs followed by “sorry’s” because after it happens more than once, it becomes unforgivable for real life situations. But for the sake of a book, I tried my best to let Tate slide on this ugly quality. And lucky for Lauren, she didn’t immediately forgive him, which I’m happy for, because I would have hated her. These two didn’t exactly see eye to eye, they spend a lot of time butting heads. But as they settled into the relationship, and began to fall in love, all the pieces and their personality traits fell into a synchronized pace.
There was a lot going on in the story besides just the falling in love part of it. A set of jealous ex’s unwilling to let go. Of course you know with Tate being a bounty hunter, there are bad guys to be caught. Very sad and very gruesome circumstances that really hit them right at home, I couldn’t help the tears that flowed. But of course Kristen’s men, being book superheroes and all, saved the day, along with a little help from friends. I pretty like/love everything Kristen writes, and I just added Tate into the every expanding favourite alpha hero pile.
Another thing this story had was a fabulous supporting cast. I cared about them just as much as I did Lauren and Tate. Now sometimes I get the secondary characters all confused together when there are so many of them in a story, but each of these had such unique qualities and special friendships with Lauren and Tate it was easy to get to know them and fall in love with them too. Ned and Betty, Sunny and Shambles, Jonas, Woods, Krystal and my favourite, Jim-Billy.
Up next in the series is Lady Luck, can’t wait to get started!
I have been loving the Colorado Mountain series. With Sweet Dreams, I must confess I did something I never do. I read this book out of order. Even though I had gotten snippets of Tate and Laurie’s life and what had happened to them in books 4 and 5, I still wanted to discover how they began and everything in between.
Laurie moves to Carnal, looking for a new start. She left her cheating hubby behind and settles for an ordinary life, she believes special is out with her reach. Laurie gets off on the wrong foot with her boss, Tate and it makes the banter between them interesting. Even though Tate’s words cut deep, Laurie remained a sassy chick and did not stand down from him.
Tate has a whole lot of responsibility on to his shoulders, not only does he have a bar to run but he has custody issues with his ex-wife concerning his son and being the kick ass bounty hunter he is, he’s in the midst of tracking down a serial killer.
I already had a fondness for Tate and Laurie but getting to know them in more detail sealed my love for them. Tate was your typical KA Alpha. Poor Laurie didn’t speak ‘biker’ so little did she know Tate had already claimed her. And claim her he did.
“We should finish talking,” I whispered. “Fuckin’ you now, baby,” he whispered back.”
With Kristen Ashley’s books being on the longer side, we get so much action, angst, tenderness and love wrapped up in one story. I liked the change in Laurie’s character. She was finding herself again, and who she really was. Tate played a part in that change and it was really nice to read about.
“What I saw made my heart skip and my legs fail. Tate, dark, tall, behind me, his hands on me. Me, blonde, my face flushed, my eyes hooded, tucked tight against him.
A perfect fit, made to be there.
A perfect match, made to be together.
Made to be there.
Made to be together.
We looked great.
We looked hot.
We looked beautiful.”
I also liked the significance of the sweet dreams, the fact Laurie hadn’t had a peaceful night’s sleep in years, yet once finding Tate she could sleep peacefully again. I’m a soppy romance lover and I got all gooey eyed over this.
“You still gotta know, I’m pleased as fuck I’m the only one who can you sweet dreams.”
The tears came back and instantly spilled over. “Me too, Tate,” I whispered.
“Waited a long time to be somethin’ special again, baby,” he whispered back.”
“After years of searching, years of longing, years of hoping and then giving up, I’d found special in Carnal and in Tate. Special wasn’t exactly perfect but, even so, it was pretty fucking spectacular and it was finally, finally mine.”
Along with the sweet and tender moments, I loved when Tate would go all Alpha. Laurie had provided him with a real home for the first time and there was no doubt he appreciated it, but there was still some things he considered a man’s job and I found their back and forth banter hilarious.
“I could make better pie-type love with a new stove!”
I heard his disembodied voice shout back, “Dick territory, babe. Don’t even think about it unless I’m there.”
“Chick territory,” I kept shouting. “A stove’s in the kitchen!”
“It’s got a plug and weighs over fifty pounds. Totally dick,” he shot back on his own shout.”
Even though the culprit of the murders had been mentioned in the books I had read beforehand, I had genuinely forgotten the name by the time I read Sweet Dreams so the mystery was just as new for me. I loved Tate coming to the rescue. I loved him protecting his family and going to the ends of the earth for them. I mean who doesn’t want a man to do that?!
I really like the community feel to the MC series books and Sweet Dreams was no exception, it was great to see familiar faces popping up and I look forward to the next book in the series.
I am fast becoming a fan of Kristen Ashley and her Alpha males. If you haven’t started this series then you really need to give it a go.
I walked four steps in while Tate flipped the light switch.
It was an exact copy of my other room, to the letter.
I threw my purse on the bed, turned to Tate, and remarked,
“Weird, it’s like I didn’t even move. It’s the same room.”
“Enjoy the ride?” Tate asked and I blinked at him.
“Did you enjoy the ride, Lauren?” he repeated and I smiled.
“Yes, Tate, it was—”
I didn’t finish but I made another sound. It was a gasp because one second he was standing inside the closed door. The next he was standing right in front of me, one of his hands was sliding up my neck into my hair, the other arm was wrapped around my waist pulling my body into his.
“What are you—?” I got out before his fingers in my hair fisted, pulled down just a tad less than gentle, and his mouth was on mine.
And he kissed me.
No. He kissed me.
Brad was a good kisser and he was great in bed. He wasn’t my first kiss though, or my first lover. I’d had a better kisser than Brad, but not a better lover.
But Tate’s kiss . . .
There was no describing it.
It didn’t start slow. It started hard and wet and so demanding
I had no choice but to give back what I got. And I did. Our tongues sparred, then our teeth bit at each other’s lips and our heads twisted this way and that, all of it a mindless, sexy dance that was all- consuming. There was nothing but his mouth and my mouth, what they were doing and what they were making me feel. Nothing. Not in the whole universe.
When he lifted his head a fraction of an inch I found one of my hands was up his shirt in the back and one of them was cupping the back of his head. His hand was still fisted in my hair but his other arm had moved up to curve tight just under my shoulder blades, the pads of his fingers pressed into the side of my breast.
We both were breathing deep, our breaths mingling between us. I could feel his on my sensitized lips and he had to feel mine.
Finally, he spoke. “Shit, Ace.”
“Shit what?” I whispered, staring into his eyes, so close, I could count the tawny flecks.
“This isn’t good,” he whispered back and I swallowed and felt a sour pit forming in my belly.
“I gotta focus.” He went on whispering.
“On what?” I asked, also whispering.
“On shit that doesn’t include what that mouth and tongue of yours could do to my cock.”
My hand at his back fisted. “Tate—”
“And if your pussy is as sweet as your mouth.”
“Shit,” he muttered.
“I gotta find this guy,” he told me.
“I get back, Lauren, you’re on the back of my bike.”
I blinked at what he said, mostly because I didn’t understand it. Then I swayed because he let me go and without a word or looking back, the door to my room closed behind him.
Several moments later, when I could speak, I asked the door, “Get back from where?”
Like the hall earlier that day, the door didn’t have an answer.

Title: Rush Too Far (Rosemary Beach # 1.1)
Author: Abbi Glines
Release Date: May 6, 2014
Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side.
Everyone in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story...
Rush has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all with the laid-back cool of a rock star’s son. All he needs are his best friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan.
Until Blaire Wynn drives into town in her beat-up pickup truck with a pistol under her seat. The Alabama farm girl instantly captures Rush’s attention once he discovers that the angelic beauty is his new stepsister, but he vows to keep his distance. Even if she needs his help. Even if he craves her.
Because Rush knows why Blaire is all alone in the world, forced to ask for help from the father who abandoned her three years ago. And he knows if he gets too close it will destroy Nan, who has a secret connection to Blaire.
He has every reason in the world to stay away from her. Find out why he doesn’t
So my #RushCrush has immensely intensified, if at all possible, after reading Rush Too Far! Yes, it is Fallen Too Far from Rush's POV, however Abbi puts a fresh spin on it! We are fully immersed into Rush's thoughts and feelings, from the moment he sees Blaire. Something in him completely ignites. In Fallen Too Far we see that Rush cannot stay away from Blaire. In Rush Too Far we are shown how much Rush is truly drawn to Blaire in mind, body, and soul.
"... I’ve been delivered. By a girl. But she isn’t just a girl. She’s an angel. My angel. A beautiful, strong, fierce, loyal angel who entered my life in a pickup truck, carrying a gun."
Being able to experience Rush's POV gives the reader so much more insight into Rush and Blaire. You understand how torn Rush was between his feelings for Blaire and his love for his sister, Nan. But just like any other love stricken man, he chose love. Love is such a strong force, and Rush's story attests to that. He wasn't perfect, but he wanted to be for Blaire. He wanted more. He wanted love and happiness, and he found that with Blaire. It wasn't that you couldn't see this in the first book Fallen Too Far. In Rush Too Far, you do more than see his yearning for Blaire. You feel it. It's intense, passionate, and completely beautiful. He wanted to fight for her and make things right. His soul craved hers.
"Only with you, Blaire. You're my exception."
Although it is Rush's POV, I found that we are also given a different side of Blaire. She is a fighter in all aspects. She fights for everything in life. And above all, the people she loves. The attraction between Blaire and Rush is completely genuine. I more fully understand Rush's connection with Blaire. How she changed him to be a different person. She showed him that in order to give love, he must first love himself. And he did. He did this by choosing love above any and everything.
"You own me, Blaire. My heart and soul are yours."
Abbi has a true talent in allowing the reader to completely connect to her characters. I believe that is why she provided her fans with this POV. She knew that Rush's story needed to be told, and that we would fall more in love with him than before. I thought this was an amazing addition to this story. It added depth to understanding Rush and Blaire and their deep connection. I found it to be a refreshing read, and so much more than a regurgitation of the first book. It was well written, flowed well, and I could not put it down during certain parts of the story. If you love Rush and Blaire's story then this is a must read for you.
Rush took it upon himself to protect his little sister, Nan, as they grew up. He hated who needed to be hated in order to make her happy, in order to protect and prove his love and loyalty to her. That was until the beautiful, sweet innocent Blaire showed up on his doorstep.
I love being able to get into Rush’s head and to be able to see his rationale as to why he is the way he is with Nan. Her father abandoned her, she never knew him as a child. Her mother wasn’t really a mother to her at all. Rush was all she had. He was a kid too so of course he didn’t know how to raise someone. He admitted he did it all wrong, made her into a hateful person. And we get to see Rush’s struggles with that in this book. It kind of made me dislike Nan less and definitely made me like Rush more. He wasn’t just a playboy, it just took one look at Blaire to figure that out.
After finding out what Blaire had been through, Rush wanted nothing but to protect her. I loved the little things he did to do so. Keeping the guys of Rosemary Beach away from her. Making sure she had a good place to sleep (eventually!) and making sure she had proper food, it was just too cute!
Now I know there are many huge Rush fangirls out there, so this is your chance to see the man in action and I have no doubt you won’t be disappointed.
They say a lot of bullshit like that because it helps them sleep at night. Such sayings make for good, heart-warming clichés to hang on the walls, to bring out a smile in people passing by.
I know differently. Children love like no other. They have the capacity to love more fiercely than anyone else. That much is true. That much I know. Because I lived it. By the age of ten I knew hate and I knew love. Both all-consuming. Both life-altering. And both completely blinding.
Looking back now I wish someone had been there to see how my mother had sown the seed of hate inside of me. Inside of my sister. If someone had been there to save us from the lies and bitterness she allowed to fester within us, then maybe things would have been different. For everyone involved.
I never would have acted so foolishly. It wouldn’t have been my fault that a girl was left alone to take care of her ailing mother. It wouldn’t have been my fault that the same girl stood at her mother’s graveside, believing that the last person on earth who loved her was dead. It wouldn’t have been my fault that a man destroyed himself after his life became a broken, hollow shell.
But no one saved me.
No one saved us.
We believed the lies. We held onto our hate, and I alone destroyed an innocent girl’s life.
They say you reap what you sow. That’s bullshit, too. Because I should be burning in hell for my sins. I shouldn’t be allowed to wake up every morning with this beautiful woman in my arms, who loves me unconditionally. I shouldn’t get to hold my son and know such a pure joy.
But I do.
Because, eventually, someone did save me. I didn’t deserve it. Hell, more than anyone it was my sister who needed saving. She hadn’t acted on her hate. She hadn’t manipulated the lives of our family members, not caring about the outcome. But her bitterness still controlled her while I had been delivered. By a girl…
No, she wasn’t just a girl. She was an angel. My angel. A beautiful, strong, fierce, loyal angel who had entered my life in a pick-up truck, carrying a gun.

Launch Day Blitz: Saving Quinton (Breaking Nova #2) by Jessica Sorensen~ Giveaway, Excerpt & Adriana and Kat's Review
Title: Saving Quinton
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Forever (Grand Central Publishing)
Nova Reed can't forget him-Quinton Carter, the boy with the honey-brown eyes who made her realize she deserved more than an empty life. His pain was so similar to her own. But Nova has been coming to terms with her past and healing, while Quinton is out there somewhere, sinking deeper. She's determined to find him and help him . . . before it's too late.
Nova has haunted his dreams for nearly a year-but Quinton never thought a sweet, kind person like her would care enough about a person like him. To Quinton, a dark, dangerous life is exactly what he deserves. And Nova has no place in it. But Nova has followed him to Las Vegas, and now he must do whatever it takes to keep her away, to maintain his self-imposed punishment for the unforgivable things he's done. But there's one flaw in his plan: Nova isn't going anywhere . . .
“What are you doing here?” It’s painful to talk, but I force the words to leave my mouth. “Or am I dreaming?”
She repositions her hand on my cheek, but doesn’t pull away, the startled look in her eyes diminishing. “You’re not dreaming…you were unconscious but…are you okay?” She seems nervous and it reminds me of how innocent and good she is, and how she shouldn’t be here in the crack house that I call home.
“Why are you here?” I ask, my voice feeble as I try to sit up, but my arms aren’t working and I fall right back down on the mattress.
“I came here to see you,” she replies, absent-mindedly touching her lips, and I wonder if I really kissed her or if I was imagining it.
She stares at me with her fingers on her lips and it’s uncomfortable because she’s really looking at me. I’ve been so used to people looking through me, as if I were a ghost, seeing the drugs, the person that I am now, the worthlessness all over me, instead of who I used to be. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to be really looked at and for a split second I enjoy it. Then she looks away and I feel like I’m dying, my brain registering the pain in my legs, arms, chest—everywhere. And I’m crashing. Badly. My hands start to shake, my heart rate picking up as soon as I realize this.
“Go put some ice in a plastic bag,” she says, snapping her fingers at someone.
I hear a mutter and then Tristan steps into my view. He glances down at me and the haziness in his eyes lets me know he’s high on something, but I’m glad he’s at least here and it doesn’t look like he’s been beaten up. “Dude, you look like shit,” he tells me with a dopey-ass grin.
“I feel like shit,” I mutter, managing to get my hand up to my face to rub my eyes. “You look like you got away.”
“I did, and you should have run with me, you dumbass…I thought you were for a while until I realized I was alone.” Tristan chuckles under his breath. “Wait until you see yourself in a mirror.”
His amusement seems to piss Nova off and she gets to her feet, tugging the bottoms of her shorts down, fury burning in her eyes. “Go get a fucking bag to put the ice in,” she says, not yelling, but her tone is cold, abrupt, harsh, and she sort of shoves him. This isn’t the Nova I remember at all and she kind of scares me.
She seems to scare Tristan, too, who surrenders with his hands in front of him and backs toward the doorway. “Fine. Jesus, Nova. You don’t have to get crazy about it.”
“You haven’t even begun to see me get crazy,” she snaps, pointing at the door. “Now go get a damn bag.”
After Tristan leaves, she turns to the doorway and says, “What am I going to do?”
I can’t see who she’s talking to and it makes me wonder who the hell is in here. Delilah? I doubt it, since I don’t think she’d be asking Delilah that question.
“I don’t know,” someone replies. I still can’t see who it is, but I can tell the voice belongs to a female and I hate how excited I get over the fact that Nova’s not here with a guy.
Suddenly a girl with black hair and big blue eyes steps in. “He looks…” She assesses me, then looks at Nova. “He looks like he needs to go to a hospital.”
“No hospitals,” I croak. “I don’t have the cash to pay for that.” And I don’t deserve to heal so easily. I should suffer for getting up and running away from my death.
Nova stares down at me with reluctance. “Quinton, I really think you need to go to a hospital.” She kneels back down on the mattress, sweeping her long brown hair to the side as she leans over me. Her fingers gently enfold my wrist and, moving slowly, she bends my arm so I can get a good view of my hand. It’s twice the size it normally is and my skin is purple and blue. Even where her fingers are, the skin is swollen and raw, and it seems like her touch should hurt, but all I can feel is heat—her heat. God, I’ve missed her heat. I’ve spent the last year wrapped up in coldness, feeling the numbness of drugs and sex with random women and now she’s here and I feel like I’m burning up.
“It’s just a bruise,” I say, not looking at my hand, but at her. I want to hold her, hug her, kiss her, touch her, but I also want her to go away. Stay. Leave. Right. Wrong. Lexi. Nova. Guilt.
It was all your fault.
Right from the very first page I was thrown into the darkness that Quinton's life is. He's still broken and lost, and all Nova wants is to save him from the life he's been leading. It was very hard reading about this man who has so much good inside, but won't let it out. The guilt that he carries still consumes him and he doesn't feel like he's worthy of loving and being loved, of living and finding his happiness. In every single scene, he just broke my heart.
Like I said, Nova wants to save him, but the problem is Quinton doesn't want to be saved. She tries as hard as she can to get him to laugh, to feel, to live, but Quinton doesn't want any of that. I fell bad for Nova. She tries so hard to get Quinton to see the light. She doesn't want to give up on him and thinks that Quinton will get to a better place like she once did. The problem is that the more that she tries to help Quinton, the more she is pulled into that dark place that is a part of her past.
This book is written in dual point of view which gives you a front row view of Quinton's thoughts and feelings as well as Nova's determination of saving the man that she cares so much about but who doesn't want to be saved.
I connected to every single character in this book and my heart truly broke from them. Most of the characters are in a bad place; from Quinton and Tristan to Delilah. Nova was like a ray of sunlight in this very sad book.
Overall, I loved everything in this book; the characters, the story, everything. This book proved what a heck of a writer Jessica is. She once again outdone herself and made me feel things that not many other authors are able to. Quinton and Nova's story is far from over, and after the ending of Saving Quinton, I need to have book three in my hands as soon as possible! I need to see Quinton break out of that darkness and get his Happily Ever After...
Nova had left him behind, but now she was back to save him. To bring him home. To make him realize that he was loved and that there are people in this world that need him to fight to live and bring him back to himself again. The only thing is… you can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved.
Throughout the entire book, I kept hoping Quinton would see the light Nova was trying to show him. She tried to show him that he was worth it, showed him that she cared. She only wished he could have had the strength to care back. There were a few small moments of clarity, but the addict in him was just too powerful to bring him back.
And just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, they did. And let me tell you, the on the roof crushed me. Broke my heart so much that I actually cried. I couldn’t imagine having someone like that in my life. To know everything I tried so hard to do failed. Nova had the heart and determination to save him. But it just wasn’t enough.
And poor Tristan. I really like him too. He and Quinton sunk further and further into drugs together. But the trouble they both get into with the dealers really make it hard to come out alive. I just want to help them all and that is what Jessica's writing does. Makes you care. Makes you believe and love these characters enough to really think about them and let them affect your thoughts the way that they do.
I had a hard time trying not to think about all of the characters after this book had ended. It's a little frustrating at times because no one’s wants to think about people living that way. It's sad and incredibly heartbreaking to know there are actual people out there in the real world just like them. Thinking nobody cares. And that may in fact be true, and that breaks my heart. We all deserved to be loved. We all deserve a Nova to bring us back to life.
The story of Quinton and Nova is far from over. There is still so much healing to be had. And it makes me kind of mad that they have ingrained themselves so much into mind, I need the next book like NOW. I would give up reading for a year to have their HEA in my hands right now. Ok, so that’s a bit much, but you get the point of how much I want it.
