Once again Kandi Steiner delivers a book that will take your soul and breathe life into it. She did it with A Iove letter to whiskey, and with this book I can't even tell you how full my heart is. I just read a book that is now a part of me, I will never forget this beautiful love story or how it made me feel. Full of great characters and that irresistible slow burn that we all crave, with just the right amount of angst, this is a story you need in your life asap!
Wren Ballard is a 27 year old boutique owner/clothing designer trying to get back on her feet and gain some independence after the failure of her 10 year marriage. She's trying to embrace her freedom and do a little soul searching in order to resume her regularly programmed life, and she has a major addiction with 90's music which automatically made her my literary soulmate.
Summertime is the perfect time for a fling In my opinion and set just outside of Seattle in a cozy cabin town, this book truly transports you to that fantasyland desperately needed to fully escape. And of course, per usual, Kandi's words are breathtakingly beautiful without being overly descriptive or dragging on, in fact it's just the opposite. The descriptions are so vivid and natural, I felt like I was smelling the smells in the mountain air and hearing all of the wonderful sounds of the cabin and the boots on the hiking trail, and the purrs of the vagabond cat, it was just perfect. Like movie picture, perfect. I wanted to live every moment with these characters because of the lyrical quality of the words. This story is a precious little gem that I want to wrap up and keep safe in my jewelry box of favorite books.
Anderson... Oh this man. Anderson Black is a local handyman in town and he's struggling to get by from day to day because of the weight he bears of an unreasonable guilt he carries with him. He's broody, short winded and ruggedly handsome and I loved watching his transformation from a wounded soul into a dream come true. Watching a man live with so much pain and guilt and then witnessing him come full circle at the heels of a woman who owns his heart is one of the most romantic things ever. Kandi captures this so perfectly, I can't even explain or comprehend how she does it, but it takes your breath away and makes you pause and really think about the beauty of love and what it overcomes to shine so brightly in the end. Her writing is simply, magical.
Watching these two characters rise and fall through the courtship of their relationship was everything I'd hoped it would be. All the unknowns and doubts and vulnerability peaks made this book seem so real to me, I can't gush enough about how well this was done. In the end, I went through every emotion on my book-emotions-requisite-list-- and that's saying a lot! I laughed, I cried, I oohhh'd & ahhh'd, I gasped and goosebumped. It was great, like really REALLY great. I can only hope this story moves other readers in the way it moved me because it is currently at the top of my list.
I had just grabbed my oversized hat and slipped my sunglasses on when I spotted Anderson walking up the drive with a large trash bag slung over his shoulder. He wore a simple, black V-neck and distressed jeans, an outfit way too dark and hot for the heat. A light sheen of sweat gathered on his neck as he made his way toward my cabin, his eyes hidden behind all-black sunglasses.
"Change your mind?" I asked, not even fighting the grin on my face as I walked outside and leaned against the banister.
Anderson squinted up at me, his boots heavy as they hit each stair. "About?"
"Tubing?" I asked. That was why he was here, right?
"Oh." He shook his head as he hit the top stair, shrugging the bag off his shoulders to hold it by the neck in one fist. "No, I have somewhere to be..." His voice trailed off, and even through the tinted shades of his glasses I felt his eyes on my chest. I'd strapped on my favorite boho print bathing suit and paired it with a dainty gold chain that wrapped around my neck once before dipping between my chest and crossing over my ribs.
He sniffed, holding the bag out toward me. "I just came to drop these off. My clothes. Well, the ones that could probably use a little TLC."
My eyes lit up and I reached for the bag, but Anderson snatched it back, brows shooting up into his forehead.
"No frills, Wren."
I threw my hands up in surrender. "I promise."
He smirked, just slightly, and handed the bag over, tucking his hands in his front pockets.
"Are you sure you don't want to come?" I asked, peering into the bag at my project before setting it just inside the cabin and locking the door behind me.
"I can't," he said, lips pressed together. He was tense, the muscles on his forearms tight as he glanced around at pretty much everything but me.
I opened my mouth to ask why but was cut off by the sound of a truck flying into my drive, tires sliding against the gravel.
Tucker was in the driver's seat with Davie in the passenger. Sarah and Yvette sat in the back, laughing with their hands up as the truck skidded to a stop. They were both sprawled out on a pile of tubes, wearing bathing suit tops and tiny shorts.
All of their faces froze when they saw Anderson.
"Hey, you ready, Wren?" Tucker asked warily, his eyes moving from where Anderson stood in front of me, to me, and back again.
"Yeah, one sec!" I called back.
I turned to Anderson, but his eyes were hard on Tucker, jaw ticking under his skin. When he faced me once more, an anchor fell from my throat into the pit of my stomach, immobilizing me completely. Because even though I 'd tried to convince myself I was wrong, I recognized the look in his eyes.
And when his nose flared and he took one big step toward me, our chests brushing, his hand reaching out to rest almost imperceptibly on my hip, the anchor in my stomach exploded into flames, burning a desire so fierce I inhaled a toxic breath and didn't let it go.
"Be careful, okay?" His eyes locked on mine just before he leaned in and swiftly kissed my cheek.
He turned on his heel and jogged down the stairs and past the truck. Sarah called his name, but he didn't acknowledge her, just kept his gaze forward until he'd disappeared from view.
And then everyone looked at me.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I literally finished this book with tears in my eyes. Not because of sadness, but because of the journey of this couple and their friends and I might be a little (okay, A LOT!) that we have come to the end. Every time these two authors get together, it’s like magic at their fingertips put on paper. You know you are about to get lost in the words. But this? This was like the book I never knew I needed. It surpassed anything I could have ever hoped for for Ace Locke and Dylan Prescott.
What a ride! We are thrown into Ace and Dylan’s wedding planning frenzy and dealing with their wedding planner, Paige. And it wouldn’t be right if the paparazzi and drama didn’t follow this couple. I refuse to go too much into the plot as this book is an experience! Just know that you truly don’t understand the depth of their love until you read this book. To witness such love is a privilege. Their love is bold and brave. Powerful and earthshattering. Loud and fierce. They love in bright colors. They love through the dark. They have been through so much to get to this point and their love never wavered or faltered. Through their ups and downs, their devotion to each other became a source of strength for them both. This book was the perfect balance of heat and passion. Laughter and tears. Make no mistake. This book is HOT! Ace and Dylan are FIRE on these pages. Titillating and sensual, these authors know to execute an engaging, yet fun and sexy storyline. The actualization of this masterpiece is felt deep inside the words of this book and its characters. I can’t say this enough. My heart was SO FULL because of this story.
Heartwarming and oh so sexy like true Ella and Brooke style, this book was EVERYTHING. I laughed, I cried, I was completely consumed by the continuation of their story and just what it took to get them to the altar. Dylan and Ace are so much more than lovers. Their bond goes deeper than most. These soul mates are unlike any couple I’ve ever read about. The talent of these authors is endless. And their ability to continuously and flawlessly execute a co-written story is simply unmatched. Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine, your words have bewitched me. I found it difficult to put this book down. There are cameos from characters from books of both authors which will have you reminiscing hardcore. Told with such precision and charm, this is a must read! Ace and Dylan your love is intoxicating and profound. Their vows had me in tears as their declaration of love in front of all those they love was nothing short of breathtaking. Wedlocked is truly an unforgettable read. It was bittersweet yet the perfect ending to the journey of these two amazing men.
Ace Locke and Dylan "Daydream" Prescott have stolen my heart again, and in this beautiful conclusion to their story they solidified that in the most memorable way, that being the wedding of the year! It was so perfect, I laughed (a lot) I cried, I swooned and I thoroughly enjoyed every word.
Wedlocked takes place a pretty much where Locked (book 2) left off, give or take a couple months. And right away I fell back into place with some of my favorite characters. You really get a mixed bag of great people in this book, including characters from Ella’s temptation series, and Sunset Cove series, and my FAVORITE women of all time from Brooke’s hilarious L.A. Liaisons series. I don’t want to focus too much on that, because this story is all about Ace and Dylan, but these characters hold such a special place in my heart and I firmly believe that the relationships formed throughout this series are what make it so heartwarming and relevant.
Dylan and Ace are back with their natural and funny banter about everything from wedding planning to awkward parents, and some pretty great sexual interactions as well, and by great, I mean hot. With these two sexy men, even the slightest innuendo is like foreplay for the reader. Ella and Brooke have taken co-writing to another level, and have truly mastered their craft and I swear they share one brain. I know everyone uses the phrase “seamless transition” and I’m sure that Ella and Brooke have heard this more than once, but it’s absolutely true and I think that only attests to how great they are as a fierce writing duo. It’s pretty remarkable.
Can we talk about the Cabo bachelor party for a minute? That was seriously so much fun, I loved every word of it! It was hilarious and clever and I really felt like it belonged in a movie. The videographer aspect of it was genius and I laughed so hard at what Ace and Dylan had planned for their friends and family. (Oh, Carlos. LOL) I’m pretty sure they did it to torture their people, but it was great entertainment for me! Definitely one of the highlights of this book amongst many others.
This book was exactly what I needed, it’s so full of love and romance and it just filled my little bookie heart in so many ways. With everything that Ace and Dylan have gone through, it was so nice to see all of those loose ends get tied up and give them peace for their life moving forward. And those wedding vows, don’t even get me started. I was a sobbing, snotting, blubbering mess and I want to thank Ella and Brooke for giving that to me because I was sincerely moved by all the words. By the end of this book I was done for, and with my red puffy eyes and wet cheeks, I sat down to write this review in hopes that people would read it and see how much this series has moved me. I hope all of my romance reader friends will give these books a chance because they are so worth it. These amazing writers put their heart and soul into their characters and you can feel it so deeply from the opposite side of the page, and I hope they keep writing together forever because it really is magic what they’re able to accomplish together.
SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.
As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.
“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”
“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.
Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”
Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”
A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”
“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”
His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”
“It’s more fun watching you.”
“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”
I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”
“If you’re lucky.”
I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.
“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”
“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.
“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”
I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.
“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”
“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.
“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.
“Maybe a little.”
“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”
I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.
“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”
As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.
“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
As a fan of student teacher romance, I was super excited to read this book. I’m a huge fan of this author so I have been looking forward to this story for awhile. But honestly? To paint it as just a student teacher romance is simply scratching the surface. This book goes deeper. Beyond the idea of forbidden love. This book is simply about the greatest love.
"She takes my breath away without even trying."
Nathaniel (Nate) Rowe and Elon Blake know devastation and loss more than anyone in this life should. Haunted by their pasts, burdened by their flaws, both carry a guilt that no one should ever bear. Although the connection is felt on so many levels, their feelings are forbidden. Not to be acted upon, given their compromising positions. Without going into the plot, you will fall deeply in love with these two. Whether you love student teacher romance, or have your reservations about them, this book surpasses anything you could ever imagine. The author and her gifted words will astound you with this enthralling and powerful story. Nate and Elon are a force to be reckoned with. You have not read a story so as deeply moving at this one.
"Elon is my ray of sunshine, punching holes through my armor with gentle blows I hardly saw coming until now."
Electrifying. Poignant. Magnetic. The emotions in this are palpable. It’s a testament to finding the truth in love. That love knows no circumstance or burden. It only knows to whom it belongs. They love with a fierceness that I found to be consuming. Their love healed. Their love saved. The depth of their love surpassed the darkness, the pain, the guilt. Just when they thought their love wasn’t enough, it was. Their love slayed monsters. Their love challenged everything you ever felt about forbidden love. The author’s precision of the storyline truly testifies to her talent in writing.
Breaking Gravity simply left me breathless. The poetic prose and brilliant execution of this emotional and complex story can only be described as magic within the pages of a book. The push and pull of these two characters was intoxicating. Resistant to give in until neither can deny the passion and yearning between them. Broken. Flawed. They found that their shattered pieces didn’t hurt so much when together. Nothing is perfect and neither is their love. But its perfect for them. This book was beautiful and sexy at the same time. It reminds us that no matter what we endure in life, we are worthy of love and all it encompasses.

I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me.
Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar that haunted him, the past stalked him like a shadow. It waited for him, hid behind corners for him and trapped him at every turn.
As much as Raphael's cruelty terrified me, his darkness seduced me. But in the end, it was his tenderness that devastated me.
Sofia came to me like an offering. Like a virgin to be sacrificed at the altar. But truth was, her grandfather betrayed her. I guess we had that in common. He’d screwed me too.
I knew hate. I'd vowed vengeance. This was never supposed to be about anything else. But in the end, her innocence broke me. The very thing I would destroy, destroyed me.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I will admit that I am not usually a reader of dark romance. I love angst and suspense, however I am usually unable to connect to the characters and/or the storyline. But when it comes to Natasha Knight’s novels I can never say no. There is something about them. Although dark and twisty, they just pull you in and never let you go. Dishonorable was no different. This was my favorite of hers to date.
“Take care when fighting the monsters you don’t become one.”
Raphael Amado has a history with Sofia Guardia’s family. He wants revenge. A debt to be paid. To teach her grandfather a lesson, he takes Sofia as his bride. Unwilling and hesitant, she goes as she knows this will protect her family. Most importantly her sister’s future. In a sense, she has become collateral damage. I won’t go into the plot too much, but the way this story is executed was simply brilliant and addicting. I held on to every last word. I was hooked from the prologue but to learn the family history and how everything unfolds truly testifies to the gifted talent of this author.
“Because some part of me, it liked this side of him. This damaged, dark, broken soul. It longed to touch him. To touch that fractured part of him. The one that left him open and lost and dangerous.”
In true Natasha Knight fashion, this is not for the faint at heart. Raphael is fractured. His soul in pieces. There is no lightness that revolves around him. He simply lives in darkness. The story is flawlessly narrated in dual POVs. It flows effortlessly moving between both the voices of Sofia and Raphael and the pacing of the story is skillfully fulfilled. This book is also very hot. The steam and darkness is perfectly balanced with emotions that simply jump off the page. You will feel anger for Raphael. And your heart will also bleed for him and everything he has endured. The author allows you to feel his resentment and despair. His only light and hope for redemption was found in Sofia. While she was taken and she found it hard to love a man like him, she accepted everything about him. Even the darkest parts. And the monsters he battled inside due to his past. I never wanted to put this book down. The actualization of the storyline was masterfully done.
Dishonorable is an intense read. There’s greed, betrayal, lies. It’s a vivid telling of when darkness challenges light in the face of redemption. There are so many twists and turns in this story that you can never guess what is to happen next. Their past, present and future are tied to each other and their families in so many ways. As the storyline unfolds you are absolutely blown away with how each detail adds to the intricate plot. It’s a powerful love story, yet it will make you question everything about love and all it can go against. It reminds you that love always threatens darkness even when it seems impossible. Sofia and Raphael’s love story is a tumultuous one. With so many ups and downs. But their journey is worth it. It may not be a story that fits every couple, but it’s theirs. If you are a fan of dark romance, be sure to read Natasha Knight. This was certainly an unforgettable read.
Devil You Know by L.A. Fiore, Stacy's review, #ReleaseBlitz #Giveaway #Teasers #Excerpt @lafioreauthor @givemebooksblog
I knew this book was going to rip me apart when I was already in tears before the prologue was even over. Just wow. This isn't just a second chance romance, this is an epic love story that takes you through 14 years of two people that were meant to be, but never quite got it right. These two go through some pretty crazy circumstances both together and apart, and it is truly a heady journey you go on while reading their story.
Damien Tate had a rough life, with both parents abandoning him, one physically the other emotionally and all he wanted to do was escape the evil that was his mother and let me tell you she is absolutely horrific. So, when Damien found Thea Ahern, the twin sister of his best friend, he finally found some peace in knowing that not all women were bad. Just seventeen years old when they first met, they had a first love romance that could never be forgotten, but once they turned 18 they knew they had a decision to make.
Thea was off to college at NYU and Damien enlisted in the Army for a long time, longer than expected considering he went into special forces. And when he finally came home for good, so many years later he was a different man shrouded in mystery and a broody temperament that Thea took on as a challenge. He was her theoretical onion that needed peeling.
This book goes way deeper than your typical love story. Thea's family is the heart and soul of this book, and Damien is and always has been a part of the Ahern family, so when the twists and turns come into play it really gives you a broader idea of what is going on. The character development is great, even with the side characters like Anton (Oh how I love Anton!!) and Thea's brother Cam. I really fell in love with those guys as the book progressed. The same goes for Kimber and Ryder, Thea's best friends. But things aren't always as they seem and when truths are revealed I was filled with all kinds of emotions. The angst was oh so present, because even though it wasn't glaringly obvious, the undertone of something big was always just below the surface. It's what drove me to keep going, because I was like ahhhhh what is going onnnnn, when will I find outttttt?!? Yes, if that sounds like whining it is. Because I was.
I loved the weird dynamic to Thea and Damien's relationship, and it cracked me up that the silliest things like pizza toppings or Thea's mindless rambling could bring Damien back to Earth, or that a simple rare smile from Damien would make his despondent and abrasive temperament irrelevant in Thea's eyes. I was really pulling for these two because after all those years I was ready for them just to be happy already!
This is really a great story that takes you on an unexpected journey of love and deceit and SO many other things, the writing was great and the author did a wonderful job of keeping me my interest piqued the whole time, I'm really excited to read more by this author. Great, GREAT read.
Before I could scan the crowd for Damian, a hand wrapped around mine...one with cuts and blood on the knuckles. It was Damian and he looked pissed.
“What the fuck are you doing here?”
My heart hurt seeing his face—a cut near his left eye, blood smeared down his cheek and a blooming bruise on his jaw. “I heard you and Cam talking. I was curious.”
He had been walking me toward the exit but those words stopped him. His feet sort of rooted themselves to the concrete floor as his head turned in my direction. “So you walked here alone?”
“It wasn’t far.”
That wasn’t the right answer apparently because he hissed between his teeth. It wasn’t an actual word, just a release of frustration.
He started toward the exit again. “What are you fighting when you are out there?”
We had just reached the stairs when he pulled me behind them and pressed me up against the wall. “Come again?”
“When you fight, what are you fighting?”
“Not who am I fighting?”
“No, your opponent isn’t what you’re fighting.”
He leaned in and lowered his head to look me right in the eyes. “How do you know that?”
I gently wiped the blood from his face. “I know you.”
He had the strangest reaction to that. He closed his eyes, like he was in pain, and lowered his forehead to my shoulder. “This can’t happen.”
Those words caused a chill to move right down my spine. He was wrong. It totally could and should happen. “Why not?”
He lifted his head and for the first time I saw so much more in those eyes. “Cam is a good friend and your parents are like my own.”
His lips brushed along my jaw and I had to lock my knees to keep from sliding down the wall. “And if I did to you all the things I wanted, I couldn’t sit at their table without them knowing that I claimed every part of you.”

Title: Something in the Way
It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be broken...no matter how hard we tried.
I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.
Set in the 90's I was the exact same age as Lake, so I totally connected with all of the 90's references and loved reliving those things through Lakes eyes.
She's a 16-year-old girl who's super smart with an extremely strict father who has her future planned out for her. This book is Southern California based and there's even mention of USC. I swear this book was written for me.
Lake meets a handsome construction worker on her way home from school and he's quite a bit older, 7 years to be exact. His name is Manning and Lake feels immediately attached to him in some sort of way, but she can't place those feelings just yet. This has forbidden written all over it! And those weird feelings you get when reading a forbidden romance, the ones that threaten your morality but you don't care? Yep, those feelings were present the whole time, and I loved how the author navigated those tricky waters because that can't be easy. And as a reader I can see how other readers might feel, and I think the author was very smart with her writing, especially with the events that occurred at the end which I won't divulge for obvious reasons.
I was completely sucked in to this story. Not only was I waiting for something to happen, I assumed it would be predictable and there would be a time jump in order to eradicate the forbidden aspect, and I was so pleased that this didn't happen! There's nothing worse than predictability in a storyline, and I truly loved how innocent this felt, while at the same time feeling taboo and naughty.
You really get a STORY, and it's kind of beautiful. I love that I was able to really get to know these characters and their back stories. Manning is such a good guy, laced with subtle mystery and his attachment to Lake and her older sister is so peculiar, while being completely normal at the same time. Lake’s older sister, Tiffany isn’t my favorite character but I appreciate her significance to the story and she kind of grew on me towards the end. The more time that passes since I finished this book, the more I love it. Like I really, REALLY love it. I can’t wait for May because I need book 2 like right now! This was a great read, and if you can be open minded and get over the cliffhanger I know people will love this book, and I can tell that this will be a great series already!

Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.
At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.
Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.
Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.
Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?
Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.
Not with him sleeping down the hall…

I am a huge fan of this series. I can’t even tell you just how long I’ve been waiting for this book and it was well worth every minute! This book can absolutely be read as a standalone. I think if this is your first foray into the Bama Boys world, this book without a doubt will make you want to pick up the rest of the series.
“I didn’t know there was different, and when you don’t have different to compare to, you don’t question what you have. You don’t know better until you’re with better.”
CJ Tully and Riley Tennyson hit it off immediately at Riley’s brothers wedding. Riley is newly single and knows there’s no broken heart that tequila can’t fix. Through innocent flirting and laughs about everything from coconuts and secrets, neither can resist the attraction. So their weekend of hooking up is unlike anything either one has experienced. CJ is hooked. And Riley simply can’t get enough. It turns out that there was some sort of misunderstanding between Riley and her ex. Or so she thought. She closes herself off to CJ. It was just a mistake. Right? Because how can something that feels so good ever belong to her?
“And if possible to look inside another person’s soul, I swear CJ doesn’t just peer at mine. He stares and studies it like I mean something to him. Like this is important.”
The connection between CJ and Riley is palpable. Their desire exhilarating. Their connection undeniable. But Riley thinks it was a slip up and it can't happen again. She breaks whatever they had going on and just wants to be friends. CJ is unhappy, but willing to take whatever he can as long as it means he gets to be near her. One night he does the unthinkable that will forever be ingrained in Riley’s mind. It’s that one night that changes everything and the trajectory of their lives. But how long can they keep this up? Were they ever truly friends? The author is meticulous in crafting a story that you simply will not be able to put down. Your heart will pound over the magnetic pull between these two.
“Do you have any idea how good you look being mine?”
CJ Tully. I love you and and your alpha ways but most importantly, your heart. He loved without words. Loudly and completely. His love knew no boundaries. He only saw Riley. I keep thinking the author can never top the last guy she writes and she continues to prove me wrong. J. Daniels is a true master at character development. She has this innate ability to make sure that every single characters leaves an imprint on her readers. You want to be their best friend. You root for them. Feel their joys and pain. Highs and lows. I fell for CJ the first time he said, Darlin’ and I claimed him mine as soon as I realized how deeply he could love.
“Tell me a secret.”
“I’m falling so fast for you.”
I was completely consumed by the Tully Charm. CJ where have you been all my life? Seriously, J, you outdid yourself with this one! What I Need was the perfect balance of fun, sexy, and romance. It was the book you want to read over and over because you can’t get enough. It’s the book you tell all your friends to read because you want them to know these characters. What I Need was like coming home.
She would rather bake than cook, she listens to music entirely too loud, and loves writing stories her children will never read. Her husband and children are her greatest loves, with cupcakes coming in at a close second.
J grew up in Baltimore and resides in Maryland with her family.

to save, but I know who saved me.
We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me
from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a
blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.
And then he disappeared.
Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While
death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with
scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into
darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has
taken away my desire to dream.
I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they
weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.
He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer,
and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for
him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first
saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes
constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it
He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else.
Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.
This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew,
is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
As a young girl, Josselyn Winters was saved from harm by a quiet boy in her third grade class. Christopher. That moment will forever haunt her even years later when she meets Wesley Stoke in high school. He seems familiar. Like she’s met him. Knows him. But this guy is different than the young boy that saved her. He can’t be that same quiet boy that rescued her so many years ago, can he? When she brings it up, Wes denies being that person. Telling her there is no truth in that theory. Over time, there is this tethered connection between Joss and Wes. She doesn’t make the best choices. She makes brash decisions where she is careless. But through it all, Wes is there. He saves her in so many ways. As their story unravels things are revealed but there is still so much to know. This is an earthshattering read allows you to get completely wrapped up. There is no time or circumstance. There is just this book.
Wes and Joss? They are reckless. Intoxicating. Madness. Exhilarating. You become absolutely consumed by their story. Joss is a stubborn heroine full of spunk and defiance. You shouldn’t root for her because of her carelessness, but you can’t help it. You are drawn to her in ways you can’t explain. So you cheer her on despite your reservations. Because deep within her, she is the girl with a fire inside that we all want to be. Wes is special. You can’t quite put your finger on him, but you want nothing more to know about him. His story is deep. He doesn’t tell it, but you can feel the depth of his past beneath him. He’s quiet, yet his love and admiration for Joss is loud. His feelings are tangible. Unmistakable. Their love is chaos and beauty. Until there is heartbreak. In the most unimaginable way.
The writing is phenomenal! This author? She takes risks. Takes chances. She pushes and pulls you as a reader to truly feel what they characters are going through. Their joy, their pain. Their highs and their lows. The author masterfully executes a complex yet unique storyline that will have you guessing from chapter to chapter. Her talent in weaving a riveting story with compelling characters is simply unparalleled. Your heart pounds as you turn each page. There is a sort of suspense as you have no idea what to expect. This book is remarkable and brilliant in both its manifestation of the characters and execution of the storyline. A Boy Like You is a thought provoking and unforgettable read. A true masterpiece. This story is one you’ve never read before. Throw away your expectations as this is a deep rooted story that surpasses anything you’ve ever read. I am so excited beyond words for what is to come with the next installment.

Title: The Butterfly Project
Author: Emma Scott
Release Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Tagline: "Where you are is home..."
Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime.
Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. But when Zelda and Beckett come face to face with their pasts, they must choose to hold on to the guilt and regret that bind them, or let go and open their hearts for a shot at happiness.
The Butterfly Project is a novel that reveals the power of forgiveness, and how even the smallest decisions of the heart can—like the flutter of a butterfly’s wings—create currents that strengthen into gale winds, altering the course of a life forever.

“She was something I never saw coming.”
Zelda Rossi leaves Vegas determined to make it in New York City. After a series of unfortunate circumstances, she is about to give up. Until she encounters Beckett Copeland. His heart seems hardened. A heart like hers. One she knows too well. She sees a second chance by becoming his roommate and working towards the reason why she came to NYC to begin with, to vindicate the heavy guilt, she has carried for so many years. Beckett knows more than anyone that there are consequences to actions. But he needs the help with the rent. And that’s why he accepted her roommate proposal. Right? He knows he has nothing to offer Zelda. And he plans to keep it that way.
“I looked at this beautiful, smart, woman sitting beside me, I didn’t deserve a shot at happiness, but she did.”
I am vague on the details as I cannot fathom telling you their story. It sounds better coming from them. And the author writes it as if it were their hearts narrating from beginning to end. Zelda and Beckett form a connection immediately as both recognize something in each other that cannot be put into words. Because the burden they carry is a weight that is felt, not spoken of. The storyline is a unique one. The author’s talent in executing a timeless and incomparable storyline does not go unnoticed as she gifts the literary world with Zelda and Beckett. These two? They are treasures. Simply all the good in this world. I could tell you why, but the author’s words speak to this.
“She’s woven herself into my life, so tightly that if I cut those threads, I’ll unravel. The warmth will seep out, the light will dim until I’m nothing but dark.”
This book is simply every love song. The masterfully executed storyline captured the highs and lows of finding love with a hardened heart. Of learning to not only give love, but most importantly accepting the love you deserve. The words are palpable and unrelenting as the author pushes you to know and understand that love endures the most through the darkest moments. Zelda and Beckett’s past although different, both carry an unfathomable grievance. Heavy. Painful. Neither willing to see a path to forgiveness. Until finding each other. Their humility a testament to second chances and not allowing choices to define you forever. Transcending and monumental, Zelda and Beckett’s love story is boundless. Infinite. Ever lasting. Their love exhilarating. Selfless. Boundless.
“And I realized you could get used to anything- even being alone for years – right until the moment you touched something better than what you had.”
With every single book I am absolutely blown away by the sheer magnitude of talent this author holds. She never writes the same story and with each one, the love always resounds. Her words in this story are stimulating, her prose eloquent and awakening. As I type this review I am completely in my feelings. And not because this was a sad read. But because the story resonated on a level so deep with me that I can hardly put into words. As much as the main characters made the story, there was a side character that I fell completely connected with. Darlene. Her role small, but her impact immeasurable. To the author... this character made some unfortunate choices, yet you treated her with grace, dignity, and respect. She is someone’s daughter, niece, aunt, lover. She was not her choices. Thank you for remembering this. Thank you for making the readers see this. That regardless of what she did, she is a person first. And worthy of love and life. Personally, this was deeply touching to me. That small gesture means more to me that you will ever know.
“I’m falling in love with Zelda Rossi and my imperfect heart wants to think she’s falling for me too.”
What a privilege it is to read this author’s work. I truly believe everyone who reads this book will come away from it looking at life differently. It is the type book that speaks to your heart, but most importantly your soul. Most of all, this book is to and for the lonely, the forgotten. To the people who are casted aside because of your past. You are loved. Worthy to be loved and to love others. This book reminds us that you are not invisible for you exist. And your existence is instrumental to this world. This books reminds us to listen for your voice as you should never go unheard. Because the author? She makes us listen. I hear you. We hear you. Loudly. Clearly. You are not your mistakes. You are so much more than your regrets and deepest flaws. You should never carry the burden alone. And most importantly, you matter. Always.
“I’d go to the end of the earth for her.”
The Butterfly Project is a brilliant and riveting read. The profoundly moving storyline left me breathless. The author’s talent knows no boundaries as she manifests a poignant and inspiring account of the greatest love story you will ever read. One that testifies to her unmatched talent. Unforgettable and bewitching, I’m claiming this as my top read of 2017.
“Why do you stay if it’s so hard to live here?” I asked.
Beckett took a drag from his cigarette, as if he were buying time before answering.
“Brooklyn, born and raised,” he said finally, still not looking at me. “Where else would I go anyway? Different city, same struggle.” He finally brought his gaze to mine. “So you’re getting out?”
“On the bus, tomorrow,” I said. “I can’t stay. I was here for a job interview—sort of—and it fell through.”
“What was the job?”
“You’ll think it’s stupid.”
“Yeah, I probably will.” His smile was dry.
I laughed a little. “Smartass. I draw graphic novels.”
He stared at me blankly.
“Long-form comic books that tell one continuous story,” I said. “Like The Walking Dead?”
“Exactly. I have one mocked up and I came here to pitch it to a few publishers. They all rejected me. Well, one half-rejected me, but it doesn’t matter. I can’t stay in the city long enough to make any changes, and I wouldn’t know what changes to make if I could.”
Beckett studied the cigarette between his fingers. “Why can’t you stay?”
“Where do I start?” I ground out my cigarette under my boot heel. “My poor planning? My dwindling funds? The fact I was robbed today? Or that I was naively hopeful the publishers would adore my work and sign me on the spot? Take your pick.”
Beckett shook his head, his mouth turned down in his grimace. “Wait, go back. You were robbed?”
I nodded and waved away the last of the smoke, wishing my failure could be as easily dissipated. “I came here like a wide-eyed twit with a dream, and I crashed and burned.”
“You tried. That’s more than most people do.” “Tried and failed.”
“So try again.”
“I wish,” I said, letting my gaze roam over the dingy back alley. “I feel like I’m so close to breaking through. That last publisher gave me some hope. If I could pull a few weeks out of my ass, I’d have a chance. But it’s impossible. I have to go back to Nevada.”
“You don’t have friends or family nearby?”
Yes, and only two hours by train.
“No,” I said, and decided I’d said enough to a total stranger. The last thing I needed was the terrible homesickness to well up again. I stood and brushed off the ass of my pants. “Anyway, it is what it is. Thanks for the smoke.”
“Were you hurt?”
I turned, glanced down at Beckett. “What?”
“You said you were robbed,” he said, his voice low, his eyes holding mine as if he were forcing himself to hear this. “Did they hurt you?”
“No, I... No. I wasn’t there. It was a break-in.”
He leaned against the wall and his sigh plumed out in front of him in the cold air. It sounded relieved. “I’m sorry, Zelda.”
I frowned. “Not your fault. Like I said, the city kicked my ass. The sooner I get the hell out of here, the better for
Beckett ground out his smoke and got to his feet. He was at least six-two, yet it didn’t feel imposing to stand in his shadow. It felt...
Safe. I feel safe with him.
“Do you know how to get back to wherever you’re staying?” he asked.
“The same way I got here, only in reverse,” I said, covering my unsettling thoughts with sarcasm.
Because that was safe for me.
Where to find Emma:
You are cordially invited to the wedding of the decade.
Adam Drake and Emilia Kimberly Strong have chosen a date to solidify their love in the bonds of matrimony.
Join them on their exotic destination wedding. Visit with their friends and loved ones. But hold the champagne toast. Fate has a few last tests for our couple on their way to the altar.
Natural 20 or natural disaster?
As a huge fan of this series, I can honestly say that I was so happy to learn that us readers would finally get this book! Adam and Mia have been through so much, and once again life has some bumps in the road for them. Despite each obstacle, overcoming each one testifies to the power of their love and all it can endure. I don’t want to go too much into the plot, but just know that the author has her reasons for writing this story. Just when you think we know and understand all there is to know about Adam and Mia’s relationship, you are proven wrong. The depth of their love can be felt within every word of this book.
Written in both POVs, the author once again displays her talent in writing a witty and romantic continuation of this series. Her writing is what simply draws me into these books as she is always above doing the norm. She has her own recipe for executing brilliant and compelling storylines and this was no different. As Mia and Adam face a new set of challenges and move forward in becoming husband and wife, their love and admiration for each other is the one thing that remains constant.
Worth Any Cost was a heartwarming and fun way to end Adam and Mia’s story. Although I believe they may be in the background of any additional stories to come for this series, the end to their own story is bittersweet. This journey has been emotional, joyous, and one of the best experiences of my literary life. I am so glad the author decided to give us a chance to see how Adam and Mia have grown as people, but as a couple as well. To know their love is truly a privilege. This book reminded me of all the reasons why the entire series continue to be a favorite of mine. The author brilliantly balances humor with emotion with romance and sexy. I am absolutely excited on what’s to come in the next!
"Hey. Where are all the towels?"
I didn't answer, just laughed some more and smothered my giggles.
The slap of his wet feet on the bare floor sounded as he crossed the bathroom toward the door. He poked his dripping head out of the doorway. "What did you do?" His dark eyebrow arched, hair soaked and plastered to his forehead. A puddle quickly formed around his feet.
I held up one of the tiny washcloths. "You want this, don't you? The hate is swelling in you now."
His mouth quirked. "Something's swelling, but it isn't hate." He pushed the hair away from his forehead and cleared the water that had dripped into his eyes. "Somehow I thought getting away with that was too easy."
I smirked. "You should know me better by now. As for drying off…you could always use your dirty underpants."
"Underpants? What am I, five?" He clenched his jaw and then grinned. "Don't underestimate the power of the dark side, young Jedi."
I rolled my eyes. "So you're going to try to one-up me? So predictable. I'm shaking in my boots."
His dark eyes gleamed as he came closer. Rivulets of water had collected on his tasty abs. It was fascinating to behold.
"And you should know me better, too." He grinned evilly. "I don't one-up. I one-hundred-up." Then he shook his head inches from my face. Droplets of water sprayed everywhere. I let out a screech and pulled back. "You are looking too dry over there, little girl. Let me help you with that."
And he promptly pinned me, dripping wet, to the bed and started rubbing his drenched face in mine. “You’re gonna soak the bed!" I screeched.
"Collateral damage," he replied. He reached down and pulled the belt on my robe, opening it. Then he shifted, sandwiching me between his wet body and the bed.
I squirmed and wiggled, and he only seemed to like it more. He shook his head again. My hand smacked his hard chest. "You're such a boy."
He grinned. "I'm all boy," he said, pressing his erection against me.
"I won’t take this lying down," I muttered.
