My Kind of Dirty by Sam Crescent

mkod sc bookcover

Grace has left behind an abusive ex and moved back to the town where she grew up, only to find it has been taken over by the Dirty Fuckers MC. But they’re not dangerous, and she even finds it enjoyable to work in the diner they own. However, one member is determined to become more than just a customer.

The last time Drake fell for a woman, he ended up with an STI, and being the laughingstock of the club. Grace is different. She’s not after his cock or looking to be part of the club. They start an unusual friendship, but neither can deny the attraction between them. Still, Grace’s fears, left over from her time with her ex, haunt her.

When Drake can’t take it anymore, he doesn’t give Grace the chance to deny him. The problem is one time is not going to be enough. He wants her by his side, as his old lady, and he’ll stop at nothing until he gets her. Will Grace finally admit her feelings, or will Drake be left out in the cold?

I give this book 5 stars

I enjoyed this book, I liked the chemistry between Drake and Grace and how Drake was patient with her seeing as she was still emotionally scarred over her previous relationship and I liked seeing how they became friends and then slowly started becoming more than just friends.
I liked the little cameo where knuckles appeared and I’m pleased there was no drama and very little angst as I thought there was just enough with Grace’s past aswell as the trouble the other female characters are in when it comes to the men lol. I liked the ending I thought it wasn’t too rushed aswell as the epilogue and I liked seeing how the book is left open so I’ll be keeping a lookout for the next story which I’m already looking forward too and
I enjoyed reading about the other characters in the book, it’s making me wanting to read more particularly about Chloe and Richard.

Winter’s Touch (The Last Riders #8) by Jamie Begley

wt jb bookcover

As president of The Last Riders, Viper’s only fear was losing his wife. After all, he had almost lost her once before.

As wife to the president, Winter lived in fear every day: fear that a club enemy would take Viper from her, fear that one of the club women would tempt him to stray, fear that she wasn’t enough of a woman for him. One thing Winter didn’t fear was risking everything to carry her husband’s child, even her health, yet Viper refused to take the chance.

Losing hope, Winter made one last ditch effort, determined to make Viper realize that some things were worth fighting for besides the club.

I give this book 4 stars!

 I liked this book as I did with all her others as it sucked me in from the start, I once again liked Winter and Viper but not so much Viper near the beginning especially when it came to the new club whore Sasha who kept trying to come between Winter and Viper especially when he kept putting Sasha first and humiliating Winter in the process, I felt for Winter when she saw Viper and Sasha together alot but a part of me did think that there was more to it and I was right and I liked that it was all to do with Viper secretly building a house for Winter and Sasha was the interior designer for it but I think Sasha will try and cause more trouble throughout the rest of the books.
I liked the pregnancy storyline and one part had me on the edge of my seat, I liked the parts with Killyama but yet again not so much with Train as I thought he was a little too slutty but not with Killyama and they didn’t really interact in this book so I’m curious to see how their book goes, I’m hoping in their story that he will have to fight for her and that she won’t give in too quickly.
I enjoyed the epilogues and I’m hoping there will be stories to do with the next generation.

Forbidden Indulgences by Terry Towers

Forbidden Indulgences by Terry Towers

fi tt bookcover

 

Before leaving for college Ivy Sullivan took a chance and opened her heart to her close friend and town heartthrob, Ethan Rogue. His rejection had been swift and devastating. He didn’t need to tell her the reason for his rejection; she was the chubby girl, a fun girl to hang out with, but not girlfriend material.

One rejection – weight gone – now could she be the sexy woman she always dreamed of?

But Ethan’s rejection gave Ivy the motivation to reinvent herself and she comes back to her hometown with one goal in mind – revenge. She’s determined to show Ethan and his best friend Trey, both of whom were notorious for breaking the hearts of every woman they dated, what it feels like be treated as insignificant.

There’s only one problem … Ivy isn’t the only one who has changed.

Now both firefighters, Ethan and Trey have changed. They’re no longer the arrogant jocks they used to be, but sexy, caring men who are genuinely looking for a woman to share their lives with. And they have both set their sights on Ivy. While the old Ivy would have spent days agonizing over which hot guy she wanted this is no longer the case, because Ivy knows ….

She wants them both!

I give this book 2 stars!

I thought the h Ivy at the beginning was a little childish when Etahn knocked her back and I could understand why he did it in a way seeing as she was going to college and he wouldn’t see her and he wasn’t ready on settling down but even then I couldn’t see the chemistry between her and Ethan and I thought the story would begin more than just 15 months later because I thought the characters might delevop and grow a bit more but that is where the story begins.
Straight away from there I thought Ethan and Trey were very shallow and I would have liked to have seen Ivy be a little more curvy and I thought the plot she made up to seduce Ethan and then dump him was extremely childish, Personally I would have liked to seen her move on with someone completely different and then watch Ethan get jealous more than Trey.
The sex scenes were steamy but a bit unbelievable seeing as the three of them were complete novices to menages and they automatically knew what to do when the time came, I thought the scene where her so called best friend came in and admitted her little secret to Ivy was untasteful and I would have liked to have seen Ivy lay into her a little about that seeing as he bff knew her feeling towards Ethan and she goes and does that with him, so not good especially when she confronts Ethan about it and he makes excuses about it.
I liked the ending but I think it was more a hfn than hea, I would like to see a sequel to see where they go and if she puts a little weight on to see whether they are no longer shallow or not.

Lakeside Mountain Rescue — romance and drama that will keep you on the edge!

I give this book 4 stars!

I wasn’t so keen on Tom in the beginning of this story and personally I thought he left her all them years ago as an excuse so he could move on with other girls as he was caught on a date after dumping Sally, I would have liked to have known more about that bit as he told her later on that it wasn’t what it looked like.
I liked the medical theme of the story and the other characters that surrounded them, I liked how Sally was strong but yet she hadn’t moved on from him whilst he had moved on quite a few times from what I got from the story, I liked how he was trying everything to get her back and she was persistent.
I was expecting the woman who had a crush on him to stir a little trouble so it was refreshing to see that there was very little drama there.
Overall I thought it was a good read.

It’s never too late…right?

Kayla Anderson is never going back to Montana. At least, that was the plan. But when her teenage son runs away to meet his great-grandparents, she ends up back in Schuyler…face to face with her high school sweetheart, rancher Jackson McGregor. It’s complicated doesn’t quite cover it, especially since Alex happens to be Jackson’s son, too. Alex and his dad couldn’t be more different, but Jackson will do anything to connect with his boy. And suddenly old wounds pale beside the possibility of a second chance under the wide Montana sky…

I give this book 4 stars!

This book I enjoyed reading, I liked Kayla from the beginning but Jackson took me a little to warm up to seeing as he what he did to her in the past and when they meet again as Alex decides to leave home to visig his great grandparents for the first time whilst not knowing his biological dad lives there and Kayla goes after him and when she meets Jackson and tells him about Alex he basically blames her even though he was the one who denied the baby and went onto marry his on/off girlfriend who was pregnant too.
I liked the background of the story and I found it realistivc in when Jackson first sees his son Alex and his son doesn’t is very wary about getting to know him as he was bought up with another man whom he called dad and even then his adoptive dad wasn’t really there for him as such.
I liked Dee Dee his younger sister and Morgan who was Alex’s daughter, I liked reading how the three got on together with very little rivalry, I liked Kayla and I thought she was the strongest one out of her and Jackson.
I did like the chemistry between the two of them but I thought Jackson did a pretty fast turnabout as throughout the book he was more carefree when it came to women despite not trusting them and then all of a sudden he was chasing Kayla and wanting to marry her.
I liked the ending but I was hoping for an epilogue.

 

 

Glitter on the Web by Ginger Voight

Glitter on the Web by Ginger Voight

gotw gv bookcover

After Eli Blake’s viral video “Big Girl/Big Heart” shoots him right to the top of the charts, he rises to fame shamelessly tapping into this niche. Because of his striking good looks, all his faithful groupies want desperately to believe every word he sings, like he’s not another run-of-the-mill superficial jerk.

One little wrinkle. He totally is.

After a vindictive ex goes public that he secretly hates fat chicks, Eli must find a full-figured decoy pronto. Obviously the only way to save his rocketing career before it collapses under the weight of one lie is telling an even bigger one. Enter voluptuous Carly Reynolds, his agent’s assistant, who knows what kind of arrogant fake he is and can’t stand him as a result.

Still, a girl’s gotta eat, and it’s not every day you get a million bucks for telling one teeny tiny fib. Surely she can handle this lying, philandering opportunist for a year. It’s not like she’ll actually fall for the guy.

Or will she?

In GLITTER ON THE WEB, Ginger Voight returns her readers to the fabulous world of the rich and the famous, with all the delicious complications that entails. One ordinary girl is forced to go for broke and risk it all, and maybe…just maybe… find something real in one beautifully tangled web of deception.

I give this book 4 stars!

I liked the h Carly and the H Eli not so much in this book, I think I would have liked him more if he had his own pov as to me he seemed more fake than genuine as it looked like he was constantly playing it up for the camera especially when she hurts her ankle.

I liked reading Carly’s inner thoughts especially when she gets roped into being his fake girlfriend for the press,
I found this book funny and I liked how strong Carly was, I did think that Eli genuinely had a phobia against larger woman as there was nothing to prove that he wasn’t especially as he always bypassed her whenever she was working.
I liked her friends including Caz, the smooth talking casanova who in a way I was hoping Carly would get with lol but I liked seeing how he was constantly there for her as a friend.
Eli I thought was more genuine when it came to his little sister and it did warm me a little towards him and it made me understand the way he was because of his family, I didn’t like how he was self centered and when he couldn’t get his own way he would be childish, I didn’t like how he went with another woman and his career didn’t get affected by it which is the only reason why he is pretending to be with Carly in the first place to make him and his career look good, yet she has to sign a contract saying she couldn’t stray.
The ending I did like but I would have liked to have known whether he was just playing with Carly’s friend and keeping her around until the time was right or if she was actually helping him because throughout the book they would constantly flirt with each other but aside from that the ending made me happy but I would have liked an epilogue as I would have liked to have read more about them.

Heart of the Music (Saints and Sinners #1) by Kaithlin Shepherd

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00058]
Saints and Sinners front man, Jarrod Banks, has the looks and the voice that make women swoon, and he knows how to take advantage of every lyric and every wink. Not used to having to fight for the attention of an attractive woman, he can’t help but be drawn to his publicist, Patricia, who refuses to play his games. She’s the one woman who’s love he’s going to have to earn and he’s not afraid to fight dirty.


Even managing a rowdy group of music sensations, Patricia Monroe is the consummate professional. For five years, she has kept her attraction to Jarrod under wraps, enduring his endless supply of women, but one day when locked in an elevator, revelations are made that could change it all.

When their relationship is put to the test, Jarrod is left with no other option than to pull every dirty trick in the book to show her she’s the only woman he’ll ever love.

Tag line: When stubborn and determined collide, sometimes you have to fight dirty to win. 

I give this book 4 stars!

This book I enjoyed reading, it sucked me in right from the beginning, I thought the two characters Patricia and Jarrod had chemistry and I liked reading about their past and their present, I liked reading about the rest of the band.

I would have liked to have read about Patricia dating at least one man in the book because it shows Jarrod dating and I think it would have been fun to see Jarrod’s reaction and I thought Jarrod was a bit weak when it came to one part of the book, I would have liked to have seen him stick up for Patricia as she was supposed to be the one he loved despite them not dating each other at the time and I would have liked to have read more about them as I thought it ended too quickly.

Heartbreaker by Melody Grace

Heartbreaker by Melody Grace

h mg bookcover.jpg

They say that time heals a broken heart, but you try moving on when your ex is the most famous man on the planet.

Every time I walk down the street, there’s a billboard plastered with his gorgeous face: Finn McKay. Now he’s a drop-dead sexy rock star, but when I first knew him, he was just the boy from the wrong side of the tracks – and the first guy I ever loved. He broke my heart into a hundred pieces when he skipped town without saying goodbye – but now he’s back.

And he wants me.

I’m determined not to make the same mistakes twice, but the chemistry with Finn was always way too hot to ignore. He was the guy who had me sneaking out my bedroom window for just one more kiss, and breaking curfew parked by the riverbanks, steaming up his windows in the backseat of his car. The past five years have been good to him, real good, and between his dirty mind and that ‘I know how to make you scream’ smile, he’s breaking through my defenses all over again.

Maybe one last wild fling for old time’s sake is what I need to finally move on. But what happens when Finn wants more than my body?

This time he wants everything. 

I give book 3 stars

This book I thought was good at the beginning and I enjoyed reading the flashbacks about how Eva and the bad boy of the town Finn got together, I liked how Eva had a bit of backbone at the beginning when she met him again after 5 years of them not seeing each other.

I thought Finn was a bit of a coward and selfish but as his story came out about why he left for the fame and fortune had me understanding and I caught on the reason behind Eva’s past after he left her, what I didn’t really like was how Finn decided to stroll back into town after all them years and acted as if nothing had happened and how he thought Eva would jump into his arms, Eva I was sort of rooting for her to get with the new vet as it seemed that despite all that happened in New York she didn’t move on and only decided to when Finn arrived.

I thought personally she didn’t make him suffer enough and was too quick to fall for him again when she had been convincing herself that she was over him and was stronger and I found myself getting a little frustrated lol but I liked how we got both Eva and Finn’s point of view, I liked reading about the other characters and I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were no ow or om in the background.

The ending I did think was a little rushed and I thought she ran to him a little too quickly and I was hoping that she might see the photo he took with the wannabe groupie on a site and jump to conclusions just to spice up the story a little lol and I would have liked to have seen an epilogue but I’m hoping that her sister will her own book as she needs a happy ending lol

Three Loving Words by D.C. Renee

Three Loving Words by D.C. Renee

tlw dcr bookcoverI hate you. I heard those words so many times from his mouth that they lost their meaning. His “three loving words” is how I mockingly referred to them. It didn’t bother me, though, because I hated him, too.

He was gorgeous, with dark tousled hair, full lips, a strong jaw, and a body deserving of a magazine cover. He was rich and cared for his mother deeply. On paper, he was the perfect husband. The problem? He was my husband.

I dreamed of a fairytale love story for as long as I could remember. I dreamed of a boy to fall head over heels for me and treat me like the sun rose and set at my feet, especially after living in the shadow of my perfect sister and never feeling good enough for my family. When I decided to earn my parents’ love in a dramatic fashion, I’ll admit that I never imagined marrying him would end up part of the bargain.

The kicker? Enzo Faust didn’t want to marry me, either. And yet, here we are, a man that I both fear and loathe is my “I do…for better or worse.” I just didn’t anticipate that it’d be more ‘worse’ than ‘better.’

I’m Paige Stiles, and here’s my story.

I give this book 4 stars

This book made me smile cry and laugh but not in that order, I liked Paige from the beginning but Enzo took a long time for me to warm up to him even when reading from his point of view but eventually he even made me smile.

I’m a fan of marriage of convenience books and this one was no exception, I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end but I wished that Paige didn’t cry so much whenever Ezno became snarky towards her and it would have been nice to see her actually throwing something at him instead lol, I enjoyed how Enzo became unwantedly jealous towards her and basically any man she came in contact with and you could feel the chemistry between then whenever they were together in a room.

I lked how Enzo told her parents the truth about how Paige always feels like she’s in her sister’s shadow hence one of the reasons why she agreed to this fake marriage and I liked Nora who was Paige’s sister and how Nora  always had both her and Enzo’s back.

I enjoyed reading how Enzo did a big tunaround and he went from being a very hateful, selfish, manwhore and misunderstood person to someone who became lovable and only to Paige but I thought she could have made him suffer more seeing as he made her suffer a lot, I liked how Paige became independent rather than living of Enzo and his family’s money and the nice gestures Enzo did for her made me like him more especially when he finds out the real reason behind the fake marriage, Paige I thought was a bit unreasonable then but from her point of view I could understand and it made the ending a lot more sweeter and a little funny.

I was curious to find out what happened next so I was happy to find an epilogue and I’m so pleased that it wasn’t a HFN situation which I do dislike.

Picture Perfect Love: A June Wedding Story Melissa McClone

Picture Perfect Love: A June Wedding Story by Melissa McClone

ppl mm bookcoverMeet the people who make it all happen – the planners, the photographers, the musicians who have helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples as they find their own happy endings in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.

When image becomes everything, it’s up to love to refocus the heart.

Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day, putting her heart into every wedding to give the couple memorable images of their love. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren’t always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. But Jenna has faith that she will find true love. Until then, she must be patient and trust in God’s plan and His perfect timing.

Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away. When an embarrassing Photoshopped picture of put an end to his political aspirations, he blamed Jenna. So what if the photo led to his being offered a dream job and changing his life for the better? Jenna betrayed his trust, and two years later, Ashton’s heart still hasn’t recovered.

It was me. His younger sister’s three words turn Ashton’s world upside down. He must ask Jenna’s forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?

I give this book 4 stars

This book was a good read, Ash took me a while to warm up as in the past he was quick to jump to the wrong conclusion which proved to me that he couldn’t have really loved her as he would have let her explain but as the story went on I could see that he loved her more this time round despite jumping to conclusions the second time round but Jenna I did like as she tried to move on the best she could but I thought she forgive him too easily especially when he believed his dad over her the second time round.

I did like the forgiveness theme to the book and I thought the ending was sweet despite the book being a little too short but it made for light reading which I’m happy about.
