“My world only makes sense since you’ve come into it.”
This will be a spoiler free review as anyone that has read book one knows that with such a powerful ending it must not be ruined for others. I think this series is to be experienced by the reader. Conviction is truly the continuation of Natalie’s journey as she figures out her life and her love for Liam. Circumstances make them question their foundation, but their love always remains. I am in awe of Natalie’s strength and her determination in loving Liam regardless of their situation. So much happens in their story as it continues.
“...sees into the parts of my heart I never knew were there. He’s the clarity in the darkness that brings peace to my soul.”
Liam Dempsey. Be still my beating heart. You are the epitome of love. He loves fiercely. He loves loudly. Despite his underlying feeling of thinking he’s just a consolation prize, he risks his heart. For love is a risk. And Liam knows to leave his heart with Natalie is the biggest risk of them all.
“Loving you is the greatest honor of my life.”
Dare I say I loved Conviction so much more than the first book, Consolation? Ok. I’ll admit it. I do. I found the story to be even so much more captivating than the first. I lived this story with Liam and Natalie. I laughed. I cried. I was on edge. I fell deeper in love with Natalie and Liam. Their love is beautiful. Consuming. Strong. They love with such conviction. They didn’t truly understand the power of love until they loved each other. Liam’s love for Natalie leaves you breathless. But their love doesn’t come easy. Circumstances try to keep them apart. But silly circumstances...the love between Liam and Natalie doesn’t see obstacles. Their love shatters them.
“Know that I love you and every moment you’re away you have half my heart with you.”
The conclusion of this story made my heart sing. This story is so real. Raw in it’s delivery of emotions. You feel everything of the characters. Their anguish, their frustration. You are with them as they battle their inner demons. Everything that happens in this story occurs with purpose. Conviction is a beautiful, inspiring, thought provoking read. Love wins. Always.

I am not a typical reader of romantic suspense, but this author has changed that for me. When I finished book one, I literally counted down the days for this one! The writing style draws you in from the very first page. The story is flawless in it’s delivery. And the characters? You live in every moment with them.
“She gives my existence a sense of normalcy, something I desperately need.”
Inevitable Circumstances picks up where Inevitable Detour left off. Essa makes a huge mistake in trusting someone and it separates her from the love of her life, Farren Shaw. Although determined to get to Essa, Farren is just as upset with himself. He brings danger to those he loves. But his love for Essa became worth the risk. He knows what his past entails and is worried that Essa may run if she shows the truth.
“I love Farren, good and bad. That’s what love is. You can’t dictate what your heart feels, not that I’d care to try.”
If you read and loved book one, this will blow you away. There is so much suspense and action. Even more so this time around. There’s intensity, romance, and everything you could want in a story. I was on edge and gripped my kindle many times. I felt as if I was there with Farren and Essa in their times of distress and uncertainty. S.R. Grey’s writing immerses you in their story. She effortlessly weaves a story of love and the length one man will go to save it, despite the consequences. Nothing is as it seems. There are twists and turns that you never see coming.
“Farren whispers to me that I am his peace, his light in a world of dark.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel from the moment I started until the very last page. The story was captivating, sexy, romantic, and full of suspense. Despite the circumstances, Essa’s love never wavered or faltered for Farren. If anything, their obstacles solidified her unyielding love for this man. His love saved her in so many different ways. He is the detour she has been waiting for all her life. He is circumstance that changed everything. And Farren? His life is no longer filled with perpetual darkness. He is good, and he sees that because of Essa. Inevitable Circumstances is a well written story and simply adds to why S.R. Grey is at the top of my favorite authors list. I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for this book world.
S.R. Grey is an Amazon Top 100 Bestselling author and a Barnes & Noble #1 Bestselling author. She is the author of the popular Judge Me Not series, the Inevitability duology, A Harbour Falls Mystery trilogy, and the new Laid Bare series of novellas. Ms. Grey's novels have appeared on Amazon and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists in multiple categories, including #1 on the Barnes & Noble Nook Bestsellers list last year.
New novels slated for 2015 release dates are a New Adult novel this fall, title to be revealed this summer, plus more Laid Bare series novellas.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Reed Tennyson. You have my heart. I am ruined for future book boyfriends. As a fan of this series and all of these Bama boys, I was so excited to get to Reed’s story. Nothing prepared me for just how much I would love his story and how much it would mean to me. Reed is perfection.
“Love should be unpredictable. I want it to hit me and like, knock me on my ass.”
Reed doesn’t do the same girl twice. Literally. He is a love and leave ‘em kind of guy. He has his reasons. It’s much easier that way. The girls know this about him. Never expect anything he cannot give. But Reed loved once. Or so he thought. Until a woman brought down his whole world. She shattered his heart and barely looked back to help him pick up the pieces. Years later, he may be over her but refuses to allow someone to make him feel that vulnerable and weak again. That is...until her.
“Your voice might be my favorite sound.”
Beth Davis is a breath of fresh air. The moment he lays his eyes on her, his heart exhales. She is new in town and so different than anyone he has ever met. She hasn’t had the easiest life, but never makes excuses. She faces adversity with strength. Reed recognizes this, but is hesitant to follow through on his attraction to her. Until he can’t hold back anymore. Circumstances force an arrangement that is opposite in what Reed believes in but may serve its purpose. Little does Reed know is that this arrangement would change the course of his life. And would shatter anything he thought he knew about his heart.
“It’s only ever been you, Beth.”
I found Reed and Beth’s story to be sweet, sexy, sensual, and addicting. I never wanted to put my kindle down. Their story attests to the truth in finding love where it’s least expected. Reed was never supposed to love. Never supposed to open up his heart and mind to that possibility. Ever. And Beth? She wanted a fresh start. But that’s the thing about love. It waits for no one. Love goes where it belongs. And it found its place with Reed and Beth. I loved that we felt Beth and Reed fall for each other. We were never told. We are immersed in their lives and watch the walls come down around their hearts. They fall easily, effortlessly. Their love conquered every fear possible. It made Reed realize that love IS a risk...but love with Beth? It's just simply worth it.
“I’m so in love with you I feel like I can’t breathe.”
When I Fall goes beyond your typical bad boy never falls in love story. If you’ve read the previous books in this series, we are given a small glimpse of Reed. His story allows us to truly get to know him and understand the way he is and how his heart was broken. He is a beautiful, funny human being. He has the biggest heart. He loves with such conviction and truth. When he loves, truly loves...he goes all in. Nothing held back. I laughed, I teared up, I was simply invested in his story from start to finish. The chemistry is off the charts between Beth and Reed. The author has an exceptional talent for writing men that you can’t help but fall for. The writing is real, raw, and genuine. Her character development is simply amazing. The rest of the Bama boys are in Reed’s story. I love that she continues to intertwine all her characters even as the series moves on. I enjoyed every moment of When I Fall. It truly solidified my love for this author and her characters. Bama Boys lover for life! #DickMeUpReed
I fell in love with Reed the moment he joked about doing naughty things to Mia under a deli table, and I absolutely could not wait to dive head first into his book. We got second hand accounts of what he had been through from other characters early in this series, but I needed to experience things from his own eyes. Reed is a smart mouthed, dirty talking, fun character, and I knew I'd be bumping him up on my book boyfriend list just as soon as I read When I Fall.
Immediately, my heart broke for Beth, and I could tell what kind of story this would be. One that would pull at my heart stings and bring out all the feels. Fleeing from an abusive relationship, Beth runs in the direction of the only family she has left. An aunt she didn't know about, who has offered her a place to stay. It was clear right away that Beth was struggling emotionally, although she was adamant that this wasn't the case. She was beaten down and dejected, and it caused a dull ache in my chest whenever I thought about what she had probably been through. And the comfort she feels when slowly realizing that her Aunt and Uncle want her with them was so utterly heartwarming, that it made me tear right up. An easy thing, if you know me, but still significant.
Reed and Beth have a super interesting introduction, and it turns into an even more interesting agreement between the two of them. This opens the door for Reed to stray from his usual arrangement with women and actually take the time to get to know Beth, and she proves to be such a breath of fresh air for him! I was giddy with excitement and hardly able to contain my smile every moment they were together. They were beyond adorable together and I couldn't wait for things to really get started and heat up! And boy did they heat up! This author is no stranger to sexy, filthy-mouthed heroes who know a thing or two in the bedroom, and Reed blew each and every one of these guys out of the water! Holy. Crap. That book boyfriend list I mentioned? Yeah, he's a permanent fixture now. And he comes with a warning label.
These two characters, more than any others in this series so far, grabbed ahold of my heart and held on tight. I fell so in love with them and their story that I couldn't get enough. They're the sweetest, most adorable couple ever, and they compliment each other perfectly. They supported each other, built one another up, and learned to trust. Together. It was a beautiful thing. Their chemistry was palpable, and insanely hot. I'm so obsessed with this book.
As usual, all of the previous couples in this series make appearances and, if you follow this series, you'll be oh so happy about quite a few things! The books in this series, although all standalones, blend together seamlessly, which is a testament to how well written they are. The author does a fabulous job of making us fall in love with new characters and couples without losing place in our hearts for old friends.
This story was fantastic, I can't say much more about it. It's fast paced, impossible to put down, and full of perfect, heart-melting moments. Reed had ruined me for all other book boyfriends. Run, don't walk, and buy this book as soon as possible. And if you haven't started this series yet...what are you waiting for?!

When I fall is the third in the Alabama Summer series by J. Daniels and is Reed and Beth’s story. Reed the guy who had his heart broken, and had therefore he had given up on love. He was just choosing to have meaningless one night stands until he meets Beth the girl who not had an easy life, and wants to find that all soul-consuming love.
“I WAS IN LOVE ONCE. Once. One time to many”
“Love should be unpredictable. I want it to hit me and like, knock me on my ass”
I was looking forward to this book, and J. Daniels didn’t disappoint. Reed he had such a big heart and was such a great friend and the more I read, the more I fell in love with this man. The fact he’s a dirty talker just sealed the deal even more.
“I just want to eat and fuck all day. You in?”
Beth was a sweetheart, levelheaded; down to earth girl and after all she had been through she still had an upbeat disposition. Love that she loves her Kindle, a girl after my own heart.
“Hope is a funny thing. Even when you think you have none, it refuses to lied down quietly. In the darkest moments of my life, I've always had hope”
I adored Reed and Beth together. I could feel their connection, and their chemistry was sizzling hot!! They shared many swoon worthy and tender moment between Beth and Reed. From the moment, Reed met Beth he knew she was different there was something about her. Loved how they help each other heal emotionally
“If it means something to you, it means something to me”
Just like the first two in the series when I Fall was a big hit with me. Loved catching up with Ben & Mia, and Tessa & Luke. Love the bathroom scene just was just too funny. The image of 3 hot men in uniform walking into a room well that just made me grin! And it had an ending that just left me grinning.
“All of me. All of you. Me and You”
I have said it before, and I will say it again, I love J Daniel writing style it just effortless from the start. I have loved this series it has been incredibly addictive. Along with Ben & Mia, and Tessa & Luke’s story. It's had the perfect mix of sweet, hot, funny, heartfelt angst and drama moments
I would highly recommend this series. All I can say is that this series has deepened my love for southern men!! I love Ben & Luke, but oh my!! I do love Reed!

I ADORED this book! Oh my goodness, Monica and her New Adult style is perfect. I took a break from this genre for a bit because it was getting stale and the storylines repetitive with too many heavy issues, but this, this was so awesome and refreshing. A heartfelt good ol "I-hate-you/i'll-show-you-you-don't, kind of love story.
From the moment Jade introduced herself to Shep as "Bitch Face" I knew I would love her. From the moment he demanded she sit beside him and not move, I knew he was going to be great. Like the little Dom to-be, about to grow out of his college boy manwhore phase. The perfect recipe for passion, whole lot of hotness.
I believe Jade's whole attitude of being a smart-ass was her defence mechanism against Shep's charm. And man he certainly could sell his charm for a fortune, that's how good he was. Maybe if she's mean to him he won't really fall for her. Maybe she'll piss him off just enough to keep him at bay so she won't have the time to fall for him and inevitably get hurt in return. The only problem is, that's why he fell in love with her. The rich playboy had been so used to girls falling to their knees at his feet, willing to cater to his every whim. Jade was his challenge.
Of course there were times where I would have loved to slap Shep myself, I get that he was afraid. Jade ignited feelings in him that he's never known to exist before. But really, Jade, slap him some more, will you? What an asshole! I think she gave into him after his little trip-up too easily. I would have thought a feisty girl like her would have given him a harder time. Make him beg and crawl on glass to get her to forgive him. Yes, I would have enjoyed that.
I really, really enjoyed this story. The sweet and sour characteristics Monica gave Shep and Jade suited them and the story so brilliantly. They made me laugh, they made me angry and they made me fall in love, just as they fell in love with each other.

*I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for my honest review.*
Lately, I find myself getting more into the genre of historical romance. As I do this, I’m discovering what I want more of. And one of those things is a medieval setting that isn’t the Scottish highlands. Therefore, when I read that this book was set in 13th century England, I was immediately intrigued.
Luckily, this book had more going for it aside from the time and place. The heroine was amazing. Strong, compassionate, and resilient, I was won over by her from the start. What also helped was the fact that she singlehandedly helped make her manor and town prosperous, while also ensuring that her tenants had good lives. I just found that so great to read about. Add all this to a backstory that made me want to see her happy, and I was quickly attached to her character.
As the hero of the novel, I wasn’t too sure if Marcus “The Beast” Blackwell could bring Ann that happiness. He started out the book seeming pretty cruel, but then, as the story progressed, it became clear that he was not so. As a knight in the Crusades, he had to work at overcoming his bad dreams and being in constant battles, while also acclimating himself to the idea of running a manor. It helped that he really was sweet with Ann, for the most part. He did have a bit of a temper, and he fell in love with Ann rather quickly, but still. He was good for her, because he made Ann a lot stronger.
The plot of the book followed Ann and Marcus as they got to know one another, after being forced to wed by the king. It didn’t help that this was Ann’s second marriage, and her first husband had died under suspicious circumstances, thereby convincing people Ann was a murderer. To add to that, she was also accused of being a witch. So the story dealt with love, drama, and the greed of men. The writing could have been a bit better in places, but it was still a good book.
In the end, I recommend this novel to historical romance lovers, particularly readers of medieval historical romance. The setting was done well, and the hero and heroine were really likable. I thought the relationship between them was functional and healthy, and the plot about Ann being accused of witchcraft and murder was well-done. I wasn’t ever bored, and I found it a pleasant way to spend an evening.

This woman never ceases to amaze me. With her words. Her stories. Her characters. It’s authors like her why I read. She doesn’t adhere to the norm. She shatters it.
“I like everything about you. Even the messy and confused and awkward parts. Even the selfish, self-preserving parts...”
Izzy Sundall is living with her aunt and uncle after many attempts at rehab. She has some deep rooted issues, but is determined to never disappoint her family again. Or at least she will try. Former military policeman, Duncan Fieri has been in the same place as Izzy. So when they meet under less than honorable circumstances, he doesn’t run. Oh no. If anything he goes running in her direction. He seems himself in her. He wants his love to make everything alright. But when a choice is to be made, Duncan realizes that maybe he can’t save her. Since he needs to be saved too.
The moment Izzy and Duncan met, you knew their lives would never be the same.They become close over CrossFit and animal training. We learn quickly just how much these two have in common.Their pasts. While this can be seen as a positive, it is also dangerous and detrimental to their health and well being. Both acknowledge their weaknesses and triggers. And know that any sort of romantic feelings should take a backseat to their recovery. But love has no time limits. It waits for no one. I laughed out loud (loudly, sometimes in public), and teared up throughout this book. Izzy and Duncan are unlike any characters I’ve ever “met”. I was in awe of the strength and their spirits. As well as their ability to love. While their lives had cracks in them, their love for each other was always whole.
Overall, My Remedy truly solidifies my love for the author and her writing. She does not adhere to the cookie cutter NA genre. This story goes beyond that. My Remedy is thought provoking, emotional, and will make you question things you thought you believed in. Even with their pasts, Izzy and Duncan cannot fight the feelings between them. You feel the moment their souls exhale. Izzy always needed a spark, and she found that in Duncan. Wholeheartedly. Their love is dangerous. A ticking time bomb. But their love is also beautiful, passionate, intense. Their love conquers all. So get this book. Read it. Live it. I did. And more. I couldn't help but end my review like this...while their love is a tragedy, Duncan is Izzy’s remedy.

Brighton Walsh captured my interest with Caged in Winter, I loved her writing and the characters she created. I had already fallen in love with Tessa and Hayley who were supporting characters and couldn’t wait for Tessa to find her own HEA.
Tessa is feeling the pressure of being a true single parent now that her brother has moved out to pursue his dreams. It’s only then Tessa realises how much she relied on Cade and his support. In his absence, his best friend Jason steps up to the plate and helps Tessa whenever he can but that doesn’t help his changing feelings for Tessa and Tessa is caught off guard with some new feelings of her own for Jason.
I really liked this story. It was a feel good romance and had the added sweetness of four-year-old Hayley. I must have read this book with a permanent grin on my face. I liked the change in both Tessa and Jason. Tessa doubted her ability as a parent but with Jason’s support, she finally got into a routine and gave her all to Hayley while carving out some time for herself too.
Jason was the playboy; he pandered to his parents’ will and followed their dreams instead of his own. It wasn’t until Tessa and Hayley meant more to him than his unloving parents did he realise what was in front of him all along.
“I want to give Tessa what no one’s given her before. I want to give her what I’ve never given anyone before. Connection without an expiration date.”
The same magic that I felt in book one was present in Tessa’s story. I felt for her and Haley and throughout the book, I was hoping Jason wouldn’t screw up (too much) and give the girls the life they deserved.
Tessa Ever After is a sweet, sexy new adult read and definitely one to check out.

Scarred was a quick, intriguing read. It set up the scene of mystery and suspense and left me wanting to find out more.
From the beginning it is clear Noelle leads an interesting life, she’s caught breaking into her old home by none other than her ex-boyfriend. But Noelle can’t come clean to Sig, there is too much at stake and that’s when my interest was caught.
I’ve read one of Xandra’s previous books, I enjoyed her writing style, and the same can be said for Scarred. There isn’t too much back story, just enough to paint a picture of the current circumstances and I hope as the series goes on we learn much more.
It ends with an interesting cliffhanger and I’m intrigued to see what happens next.
Multi-published author Xandra James has always wanted to write romance books. Even when she was sneaking peaks at the hot bits, too young to fully appreciate them, she dreamed of writing her own.
Now, older and wiser, she’s got the opportunity to project her slightly dark and wacky, British sense of humour onto others, whilst still writing the hot bits – bonus!
When not writing, Xandra is thinking of excuses as to why she shouldn’t be doing the housework, looking after a husband and cats that refuse to pick up after themselves and climbing the mountain in her house that’s affectionately called her tbr pile.
She currently holds the crown for Queen Procrastinator – something she’s very proud of – so you can usually find her online, somewhere, when she really should be writing.

I have followed the Marked Men series from the beginning, falling in love with my favourites along the way. Therefore, when it came time for Asa’s story, I knew it would be bittersweet. I couldn’t wait for Asa to get his time in the spotlight but I also knew that meant we had come to the end of the road with our favourite gang.
Asa is his own harshest critic. With a past full of regrets, he has been slowly trying to stay on the straight and narrow, namely for his sister Ayden. But what Asa doesn’t realise or refuses to acknowledge is that he isn’t that person of the past anymore; he’s made his amends and is now living the life he deserves. But the southern charmer is stubborn and it takes a sexy cop called Royal to show him that he is indeed a man worthy of love. Worthy of Royal’s love.
“I was going to actively try to avoid causing any more damage, and so far it had being going pretty well. I just had to hold on to those memories, those regrets and that remorse, tight enough that my hands would be too full to ever do the devil’s work again.”
Royal is struggling to come to terms with an accident at work; she blames herself for putting her partner in danger. So that’s what Royal has come to seek; danger. She throws herself at Asa thinking he can give her a night or two of wild sex to escape from her current nightmare but what she doesn’t bet on is being Asa’s salvation as much as he is hers.
“There are amazing things happening right here in the moment with us, Asa. It would be a real bummer for you to miss any of them because you can’t let go of the past and because you’re too busy trying to sabotage the future.”
The characters drove Asa’s story and I liked that. It wasn’t over dramatic and full of angst, the focus on was Asa’s change of character and his self acceptance. It really was a fitting ending to the series.
“I threaded my fingers through her hair and bent down so I could kiss her again. We tasted like sex and always.”
As always, Jay’s writing held my attention throughout the story and I was intrigued a hundred times over with her side characters, hoping each and every one gets a story of their own!
It was great to catch up with the whole gang and discover how their relationships were progressing. They seem so familiar now, it was really bittersweet to say goodbye.
If you are a fan of this series then Asa rounds it off perfectly and I have no doubt you will love it. If you are new to these books, I suggest you snatch them up, start at the beginning, and prepare yourself to fall in love with a lot of marked men!

This book was seriously funny without trying too hard. I genuinely lol'd a lot. It was a refreshing read and I enjoyed it immensely.
Violet is hilarious and adorably quirky. I couldn't help but to feel awkward for her with some of the weirdness that came out of her mouth. I loved her!
Alex of course was near perfect. I'm guessing from the way he acted in the beginning was because he didn't know how to act when he liked someone. He went a little overboard with the stalking. And by that, it was more funny than annoying. It was sort of cute, like the way a new puppy follows you around looking for attention.
I don't care if it's weird of me to say, but I enjoyed the breakup period in the story. I like to see a man grovel. Alex was really great at it too! Thank you, Violet, for not caving too soon and forcing him to make the ultimate move that did.
This book pretty much had everything. Lots of laughs, hot sexy times, and two great characters you can't help but love!
