BLURB:

I'm obsessed with the game.

I spend so many hours playing that I dream about dangerous missions on other worlds...and my gorgeous, in-game training partner, Kassius. That is, until I win. I beat the Starfighter Training Academy.

But is it a game? Or alien software designed to recruit new, unsuspecting soldiers for a war in another star system? Because when my hot as heck alien shows up at my workplace demanding I leave Earth and travel to the Vega system? What? When he informs me it's my duty to fight Queen Raya and the Dark Fleet? Claims he wants me as much as I've craved him? Let's just say things get crazy.

Facing the truth is never easy, but when I arrive at the Elite Starfighter base I learn that Kassius cheated the system, hacked into the game, and lied to everyone on two worlds to make me his.

Now who's obsessed?

REVIEW:

I absolutely love this series! The first book in the Starfighter series introduced me to author Grace Goodwin, which I went and binged all her other books. The second in this series follow the second in the trio of female gamer friends, Mia. I couldn't wait to see what suspenseful sci-fi romance was kicked up with this next installment.

Starfighter Command: Game 2 follows Mia, who has finally finished the Starfighter Training Academy game, just like her friend Jamie. However Jaimie went dark after finishing the game and now Mia is in for a surprise. Kassius aka Kass is arrogant, a rule breaker but has his heart set on helping stop the Dark Fleet and Queen Raya at all costs. He works his tech magic to get into the Training Academy Program and meets his bond mate Mia. When she completes the Academy he brings her straight the Velerion and into the war to save their worlds. Together they fight against traitors, the Dark fleet and their hearts.

Mia is such a rock chick, she is gung ho and ready to battle as soon as Kass brings her to Velerion. She actually takes the reality that this game is not a game but real with ease. She is a tech genius and her smarts is what makes her good at what she does. She and Kass have this intense bond and of course neither can resist each other. Kass will do anything to protect Mia and save his planet and her, but he has to deal with the politics and higher ups that are gunning for him.

Overall this series is fully of action and suspense, just like the first, we are put straight into battle against the Dark Fleet and hope that our new couple can survive. The romance is off the charts sexy and Goodwin knows her romance, she make the pages sizzle with sexy. The past characters also have some moments which interconnect this series just like her others. I cant wait for the next book!

BLURB: 

 All of a sudden Charlotte is surrounded by whispers and looks of pity. It's mortifying. She needs a fresh start and fast. 

 Enter Ollie. 

 Ollie is her brother's best friend and her saving grace. He's in the middle of renovating his grandparents' beach house into a B&B in North Carolina and offers her a place to stay and lay low. With over 3000 miles between her and her ex, 

Charlotte feels she can let go and be herself again. But the trouble with social media is that once something is out there, it never truly goes away. 

 When her problems follow her to paradise, will she have the strength to stay, or will she run again

REVIEW:

My first book by author Sophie Blue and now I'm on to looking at her past book list. This was a wonderful introduction to Blue's writing, the was a sweet heartfelt romance story.

The Best Friends Sister follows Charlotte who needs a breather from her life at home. She just had the worst and most public break-up due to the fact her boyfriend just proposed life on social media for everyone to see, but not to her. She goes to North Carolina to help her brothers best friend Ollie getting his new B&B up and running. Charlotte nor Ollie are prepared for the bond that grows as they both heal from broken hearts and bringing to life the B&B that brought them together.

This was a quick and sweet read novella, the characters have had horrible relationships, both still healing from them. Working on the B&B they bond, painting, cooking and just being each others company without the past constantly thrown in their faces. The romance is steamy and I love how they grew as friends first. The is drama but overall this was a great quick romance.

BLURB:

Leo Winter loves his life. He works when he needs money. He rides when he craves freedom. He frequents the local bar when he wants a good time. The Tin Gypsies might be a memory, but the bachelor life he lived with his motorcycle club still suits him fine. So when a one-night stand surprises him at a family barbecue and claims she's pregnant with his child, he's certain he's died and gone to hell.

Cassandra Cline took one night off from her structured life. One. And now her wild fling with the local bad boy has turned her life sideways. Her dreams and academic career are circling the drain, and none of it would have happened if she'd stayed far, far away from Leo.

Except avoiding him is impossible, especially when she's forced to move home to Clifton Forge, Montana. And he refuses to leave her side when a series of strange accidents put her and their baby at risk. But are they accidents? Or is she standing in the middle of a battlefield she doesn't understand?

Her only allies are people she barely knows. And a man who has the potential to steal her heart.

If only he'd stop playing the fool.

REVIEW:

Devney Perry is such a fantastic writer, her beautiful worlds building around small towns and the couples that live there are just so darn good. I can never get enough, the Tin Gypsy series has a little more edge and a darker side then the others but its still gold.

Fallen Jester follows Cassandra Cline who came home for a break from studying to her home town in Clinton Forge. After a night out with her friend, she ends up going home with the irresistible and notorious playboy Leo Winters. When she discovers she pregnant her world takes a massive one eighty and she makes the decision to move back home. However Leo doesn't believe Cassandra and pretty much wants nothing to do with her. But Leo is a Tin Gypsy and the other members women know who Cassandra is and what she has gone through, Leo is about to get a rude awakening and discover its time to grow up.

Cassandra like all the other ladies in the Tin Gypsy series is one heck of a tough woman. Her world has changed and she is determined to move forward and make the best life for her child, with or without Leo. I loved that she never backs down, she puts her foot down with Leo. I also adore her parents and her father who is down right the best and makes sure his daughter has the best. Leo I pretty much wanted to smack him 60% of the book, he frustrates me to know end. But he grows and I loved how he became the man he didn't know he could be. All the past couples are back and are better than ever, the group brings a wonderful round of support for Cassandra and Leo and I adored all the family moments they brought along.

Overall this was another great addition to this series, the suspense in this one was just as intense and heart stopping as the past books, the big bad is still there and still wanting to hurt the Tin Gypsy's. With the next book being the last, I'm hoping that this group get's the HEA and also stops the Warriors who just keep coming back.

BLURB:

Bachelors, beware. For those who keep secrets and prey on the innocent, you will be exposed, with all your dirty little secrets laid bare to one and all. You have been warned...

Lady Olivia Haliford has had enough. Tired of seeing women lose their reputations, futures, and sometimes even their lives to scandal while the men walk free, she is ready to take back power and stand up for women everywhere. Along with her two closest friends, she plans to start an anonymous publication dedicated to dishing the dirt and exposing the secrets of society's most eligible bachelors. But in order to do so, she will have to make a deal with the devil...

Sebastian Colver, known as the Bastard of Baker Street, is feared throughout London as the city's most notorious gambling den owner and undisputed king of the underground. His life is nothing but darkness and danger, so he is shocked when the petite lady gracing his doorstep seems anything but frightened of him. He agrees to be a silent partner in the publishing of the Gazette if she will use her connections to sponsor his sister and launch her into Society and away from his dark world.

But exposing the secrets of the rich and powerful can be dangerous. Almost as dangerous as a lady falling in love with the king of the underground.

REVIEW:

Where oh where has this author been and why was she not on my top historical read list? This is my first read for author Maddison Michaels and not my last, I'm ashamed to say I had not read a book by her, but I will be reading more now! This was a wonderful start to a new series, lots of suspense, steamy moments, complex characters and tons of humor.

The Bachelor Bargain follow Lady Olivia and her two friends, they just lost one of the closest friends and they want to punish whoever did this to her. They believe she was murdered, and that one of the many Bachelors in society that go around and break many hearts is responsible. They come up with a plan to out all these men, but they need help and Lady Olivia goes to one of the most dangerous men in society the Bastard of Baker Street Sebastian Colver. He too hates the society of rich and superior, but is taken back by this bold woman and together they face the dangers of finding the murder and staying alive.

Lady Olivia is my sole sister, she was a tough as nails lady, injured at a young age and having to use a cane, never slows her down. She is determined and always puts others first. Her courage was admirable, even though she constantly put herself in danger to get answers. She had no fear even going face to face with Sebastian who has a lot of blood on his hands. Together they became the perfect pair to take down the big bads. Sebastian is ruthless, he grew up defending himself on the streets and became successful and feared for it. But this big powerful man doesn't know what to do with this small spitfire of a woman.

Overall I loved this story and this introduction to a series, I was laughing, swooning and holding my breath with each and every chapter. Michael's is a master at her craft, her writing is beautiful done and her characters are captivating and memorable. I can't wait to see who the next installment follows because both Lady Olivia's friends are given some great highlights that I know the readers are going to be in for a thrill.

BLURB:

He’d hated me first, so I figured it was only fair I hate the stupid, sexy jerk back. After ending the world’s worst relationship, Marin Grey had sworn off men. So it was rather inconvenient that she couldn’t seem to keep her eyes and thoughts off the Ice King himself, Pierce Walton—also known as her ex-boyfriend’s older, much hotter brother.

He was cold, callous, and rude. He was also the most gorgeous man she’d ever laid eyes on, which made the fact that he’d hated her from first sight all the more unfair.

When circumstances dictate they put their swords away so Marin can help Pierce take care of his son, that ice-cold hate suddenly takes a turn into something much hotter. And if they aren’t careful, they could both be burned alive.

**Whiskey Dolls is a brand-new series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

REVIEW:

Another great story held in the small town of Hope Valley, this is a spinoff series that follows a character from the prior one. Readers don't need to read the prior book that introduced this character, but I would add, the reader would get a better idea of what this lead character went through.

Bombshell follows Marin, she is finally getting back on her feet and feeling free from her abusive ex, thanks to her friend and co-worker. She lives the simple but single life, she decides to get a handle on learning to cook since she is a hot mess in the kitchen. But when she see her ex's brother in the same class, the man who has always been cold to her, but still makes her heart beat faster, her world of single and simple takes a turn. Pierce is a loving father but a workaholics, the one woman who makes him feel again suddenly shows back up and may be able to rescue this dad and his cold heart.

Marin is as sweet as can be, a loving sister and a heck of a dancer. I adored her character and really wanted her to find some happiness after her last relationship. Pierce is all about work and his son, but he feels hes losing his grip with raising his kid, that maybe hes not doing enough. Marin steps in a brings some life back into his household.

Overall this had all the steamy romance of Prince's other series. Bringing back past characters and all the humor mixed in. I was a bit bummed that there was no real suspense as the past stories, this was more focused on these two characters finding their new beginnings. I can't wait to see who next in the group of girls.





Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

BLURB:

Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner --ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair--and it's poised on the edge of a dark scandal.

After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she's long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she's not yet ready to give up on her father.

Determined to ensure Mac's safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path.
While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future ... if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn't do the job first.

REVIEW:

The On Dublin Street and Harts Boardwalk are two of my favorites of all times, I cant go back and re-read over and over again. I was thrilled to get another fantastic start of a new series from the fabulous Samantha Young. This one didn't disappoint, the suspense, the romance, the complex characters and wonderful secondary kept me hooked from start to finish.

Here With Me follows Robyn Penhaligon, who makes the journey to Ardnoch Estate in Scotland, where she wants to meet with her estranged father Mac. Robyn a now former cop is looking for answers to why her father abandon her, a near death incident has brought on the need for closure. Robyn also comes face to face with Lachlan Adair, the man who is her fathers boss and the reason her father left her behind, work over family. But Robyn discovers a lot about her family, her father, the Adair's and herself on her visit, and when her father gets her a a stalker starts becoming more volatile, Robyn's police background takes on the task to stop the person who wants to not only hurt her family but the Adair's.

This was such a fantastic story, lots of emotional rollercoaster and heart breaking moments for a broken family to reconnect. Young is a master of creativity, her writing is always beautiful created and her characters even though complex are wonderful done. I connected to all of them, even the secondary characters which I know will pop up in the future books, they pulled me in and made me care for them all to find some happiness. Robyn was the strongest, her will to get answer to get that void filled by her father who had her at such a young age just broke my heart. I rooted for her to not only get answers but to find herself and know that she was important too. Lachlan, is a broody man, he is use to the Hollywood spotlight, but has always treated outsides with a bit of a distain. His first meeting with Robyn goes spectacularly bad and he just cant seem to figure out why she brings out the awful side to him.

Overall I devoured this book in one sitting, I need to know who this stalker was and why, Young does a great job keeping the readers guessing. Even though I thought I knew who is was, I was super wrong in the end and I liked that, because I hate when I can figure out the big surprise too quickly. The romance as always is full of passion, angst, sexy steamy moments, all the goodies that bring me back to Youngs romance stories. I can't wait to see which Adair is next, because I adored them all.
