Tattooed Dots - Kimberly Knight - Review

Tattooed Dots by Kimberly Knight Review
In the start of this book I though Easton was an ass but by the end of the book he was 100% swoon worthy, by God this man is amazing.
Brooke, she was strong from beginning to end and was simply an amazing character that was loyal and totally loveable.

Brooke's BFF buys her a cruise trip for her birthday which turns out to be a singles cruise. I had to love Nicole for tricking Brooke because I agreed with her that Brooke's boyfriend was a muppet.
Brooke meets Easton and it's clear there is a connection, even though it isn't purely sexual right off the bat. Throughout the cruise their connection grows as does the sexual tension. They both know that once the cruise is over, they have to stay in touch, even just on a friendship level. That is until Brooke's muppet boyfriend does the dirty on her. High five to the head with a metal chair to Jared.

Brooke's life takes a tragic turn but Easton steps up and stands by her even though he is a single father to his daughter. He never leaves Brooke's side and their friendship grows into pure love.
Easton's daughter finally accepts Brooke in her dad's life and it is happy ending for them considering what they have had to go through.

Strong, heart warming and loveable story.

Mine to Steal - T.K. Rapp - Review

Mine to Steal by T.K. Rapp Review
I enjoyed reading this story about Trey & Faith. This story has many ups and downs that keeps you reading to see how everything unfolds.
Trey & Faith are competing for the same job and have to spend time together to get the job in the beginning. Throw in an annoying yet funny brother, underhanded boyfriend and two hard headed people with a history and you get a great story.

Invicta Salvation - Piper Kay - Review

Invicta Salvation by Piper Kay Review
The first book in Piper Kay’s Invicta series, Salvation, is a sweet story of how two men met and fell in love. The story starts with a description of Kade and Holten’s male revue night club, which I’m guessing is the setting for the remainder of the series. The story then turns and takes us back to when Kade and Holten first met. It is love story of two men coming to grips with who they are separately, and who they are when they finally let go and love each other. Piper Kay reels you in with the gritty and seedy male night club scene, and then takes you a beautiful journey of love and devotion in which Kade and Holten see each other as their personal salvation. The next book in the series should be a good one!

Let Love In is FREE!!!
Book One in The Love Series by Melissa Collins is currently free on all platforms!

SynopsisWhat would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world change? 

Madeleine Becker lost everything when her parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can't get hurt if she doesn't fall in love. 

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy's pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world. Maddy's inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past. 

Together they find out what happens when they let love in.

About the Author

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. 

Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

Through the haze of sleep, I felt hands on me. Cold and rough. I thought for a fleeting moment that it might have been Kyle. Then, I remembered our break up. It had happened weeks ago, but maybe that part was the dream. My memory was fucked and I couldn’t latch onto a thought long enough to ride it out of the fog. Too many hands. They groped and pulled—rough against my skin and digging into muscle and bone. I tried to retreat, my back pressed into a hard surface beneath me, and my nostrils filled with the smell of musk and damp stale air. I had no idea where I was, or how I’d gotten there. I kicked and gasped, trying to get back to the surface where reality lurked, shimmering in the distance, but just out of reach, like the sun on the surface of the water during a dive. A hand latched onto my hair and held my head back. My eyelids were finally freed from the sticky muck that held me in semi-consciousness, and I opened them to find myself staring up into unfamiliar green eyes. I only held his gaze for a few seconds—if that—but it seemed like it lasted for hours as my brain fought to categorize the details. Its useless attempt to understand what was going on. The man clutching my hair had vivid green eyes, but they may as well have been black given the emotionless void they displayed. His hair was shaggy, brown with a mix of grey, the same colors that stood out in his unkempt stubble. As if he needed any help looking rough. He exhaled and his breath settled over my face, reeking of booze and cigarettes. The smell made me queasy, but I didn’t have time to dwell on that, as another set of hands tugged at my jeans. My gaze traveled around the room, taking in the small crowd. At least half a dozen men surrounded the table where they had me spread out like a holiday feast. All dressed differently, from ragged tank tops to well-fitting dark button-down shirts, but they all projected an air of unchecked danger. Necks marked with tattoos, hands covered in callouses and scars. Scruffy faces accented their sneers and smirks, as they stood above me staring down with eyes starved of humanity and full of lust. Apparently, they didn’t expect me to put up a fight, because aside from the hand tangled in my hair, no one seemed concerned with keeping a tight grip on me. Probably because they outnumbered me, and I assumed they would have no problem beating the crap out of me as I struggled. They’d downright enjoy it. Unfortunately, I didn’t fully consider how that scenario would play out. I bucked and managed to knee the one pulling on my waistband in the face. He grunted, but I can’t imagine I inflicted as much pain as his retaliatory blow to my ribs. I sucked in air and rolled, curling around the injury and gasping for each painful breath as the sickening throb exacerbated my confusion.

Can Drake convince Alexa that it’s time to push their relationship forward? Or will she allow her fears to hold her back?  
Hold Your Horses “Charlotte,” he sighed as his lips crashed down on mine and every single thought flew out of my head. This wasn’t a gentle kiss at all. It was desperate and rough, our mouths ravaging each other and quickly spiraling out of control. It felt like it had been forever since I was last able to touch him. Before long, I was gasping for air, trying to breathe him into me. To hold on to this moment and him forever. “Sugar, we can’t do this here,” he whispered against my lips as my hands started to unbutton his shirt. I had forgotten we were in my parents’ driveway. Forgotten that they were probably waiting for me inside the house. “Shit,” I replied, my head dropping down to his chest. I could feel his heart thumping under my cheek. His arms wrapped around me so he could cradle me in his embrace. I loved being this close to him. How could I ever give this up?

noah cover.jpg

Being the son of Colton Mitchell isn't what Noah Mitchell wants to be known for. Though he works along side of his father, he feels the strain to go out on his own. Being the next in line to be in control of the family's ranch, he debates on taking his life in a completely different direction.

Leaving town to clear his head he meets Shalan, a beautiful singer that longs for a life in the city.

As sparks fly, his family's dreams for him seemingly go out the window. Will Noah stick around to follow in the footsteps of his famous father, or will love lead him away?

This is Book 1 in the new series, Mitchell- Healy Cousins.
You will still be able to enjoy all of the original characters from the original Mitchell Series.

I tugged down my jeans, since his back was turned to me. We were both adults and he’d obviously seen a woman before. Being in my underwear was exactly like wearing a bathing suit. I had nothing to feel ashamed of.
Well, that’s how I felt before he turned around and got an eyeful. “I wasn’t kiddin’ about sharin’ a bed.”
I climbed into the cold bed next to his. “You and I both know what will happen if I get into that bed with you.”
He sat up, leaning on his elbow. “What’s that exactly?”
“Oh, you’re funny. Like you don’t know already. Do you really think I’d just throw caution to the wind and sleep with you after one day?”
“You almost did a few hours ago.”
He was right and I hated that he knew it. “I would have stopped you.”
“Darlin’, after one kiss you’d be beggin’ me for more.”
His huge ego annoyed me, but it also made me hot between my legs. I could close my eyes and picture him being between them, satisfying the growing craving I had for him. “Have I mentioned how much I hate cocky men?”
“Maybe you just hate cock. Are you into cleanin’ carpets? Is that how you roll?” He must have thought his comment was funny, because he rolled on his back and cackled at himself. “You like the taste of pussy?”
I pulled a pillow over my face and screamed into it. The bantering between us was making me crazy. I finally removed the pillow, put my hand on the lamp switch, and spoke. “Wouldn’t you like to know?” I shut off the light and rolled over promising myself that I wouldn’t listen to anything else he had to say.

Mitchell Family Series

Books 1-3 are currently ON SALE for ONLY $0.99


“Noah Mitchell, well hello there handsome!” So, I just finished Noah (man, do I wish that was a literal statement, don’t tell the hubs) any way, mind out of the gutter. I loved Noah, this was a five star read right from the beginning for me. I have not read any of the Mitchell Family Series, but the nice thing about this spin-off series is Jennifer gives you a rundown of the family before you start the book. As soon as I read that this book was by Author Jennifer Foor, I knew I would love the writing style (huge fan of Love’s Suicide--- here!) 

Noah Mitchell comes from a ranching family in Kentucky. He is the oldest son of Colt and Savanna and is expected to take over the family ranch. But, Noah just isn’t feeling it, he wants to find his own way in his life and try new experiences. The problem with this is he just doesn’t know how to tell his over-bearing father. The more he tries, the more his father doesn’t listen. All hell breaks loose and he ends up leaving the ranch in anger. 

On his journey “to find himself” he stops in a small town for dinner and a drink. He just wants this trip to be about getting away from the ranch and finding out what he wants to do with his life. Little does he knows, he’s about to get a whole lot more than he bargained for on this trip.

Shalan doesn’t have anyone that cares about her. She’s been handed the raw end of the deal her whole life. Meeting a handsome stranger in her uncle’s bar, she doesn’t for the life of her think he could be the answer to her problems. After a predicament with her boyfriend puts her in harm’s way, she ends up on the roundtrip of lifetime with Noah. In a few short days their relationship grows into something more. 

I don’t want to give too much away, but this book a must read, especially if you like country boys (I DO!). The chemistry between Noah and Shalan is hot. The love and bond of the Mitchell family is so beautiful it makes me want to jump in the book and be a part of their family. Jennifer Foor writes relatable characters that we can fall in love with and feel with. I can’t wait for more in this spin-off series. 

**Note** you do not have to read The Mitchell Family Series to pick up on the Mitchell Healy Series, but I’d recommend it. I love those Mitchell’s
