New Review! Sugary Sweets by AM Willard 4 Cranky Stars

Sugary Sweets (A Taste of Love, #2)Sugary Sweets by A.M. Willard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky stars

Zara dances to the beat of her own drum. What works for most, most certainly doesn't work for her. She has loved Hatcher forever but doesn't see the need to get married. Life is good just the way it is or so she thinks.

Hatcher is head over heals for Zara. She's crazy and quirky and completes him in a way he never imagined. Now if he can just get that ring on her finger.

I did love this story and the friendships within. The way that they all circle the wagons to help each other when needed is amazing. AM Willard shows us that life is messy and the messier it is the more beautiful it becomes. The only thing that kind of bugged me was that it felt rushed. I still have some lingering questions. All in all its a great series and I feel like i have new fictional friends.

New Review! Earth's Embrace by Alex E. Carey

Earth's Embrace (Elemental #2)Earth's Embrace by Alex E. Carey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars

Kira and Pyre are starting life anew and together. They want to live a normal life but how can you be normal when ones a demon who formally lived in a cave and one is an abandoned human girl? Living as roommates, but still madly in love, Kira and Pyre navigate the relationship waters with their friends by their side. There is a new sinister being stalking Kira in her dreams and they have to solve the mystery before it's too late.

This book was better than the first. It still had some hiccups along the way. Mainly transitioning from one scene to the next. I had to re read quite often. I laughed a few times reading about Pyre trying to adapt to apartment living. Such has almost setting his stuff on fire and doing random gravity checks over all his boxes.

I liked that they introduced new characters and a villian we saw coming. I'm ready for book 3 to finally get some answers.

New Review! Skin Deep by Cassie Leigh 3.5 Cranky Stars

Skin Deep (Ink & Brazen Women, #1)Skin Deep by Cassie Leigh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Cranky Stars

Gigi was a lady whore. Plain and simple. If a man can so can she and this is evident in her narrative. She gets a new job working for Roman the hottie extraordinaire . Roman runs a tattoo slash art studio which to me was an interesting combo. Kinky sparks fly between Gigi and Roman but will this self-professed relationship phobe finally fall?

I need to explain myself before anyone goes crazy. I don’t think it was this book in general. This is the genre I read often and I was excited about the premise. I picked up this book several times thinking It was just me and I would come back and it would click into place. I finally made it through but It didn’t do it for me. I’m not a prude I’m on board with Gigis thoughts about men versus women. I was turned off by the phrase ruined panties more than once. I would try to give another of Cassie Leighs books a chance.

There are times when a book grips your heart and then there's the one time it obliterates it. This book did just that. The funny thing is that I don't really want my heart to be repaired.

Melanie is just trying to survive and incident that happened years ago. One moment in time that changed her world and heart forever. Her saving grace comes in the form of two sinfully sexy men.

Slade has love Mel since he met her in college years ago. Despite her thoughts on love and relationships he never gave up. Along comes Nick and his love only grows stronger and more complete. Can these two sexy men break through the walls surrounding Melanie's heart?

From the first page this book sucked me in. The suspense and love along with the eroticism had my heart racing. This series is addicting as is the authors writing. This book does contain sensitive topics but the author handles them with grace and compassion. I highly recommend this series to everyone looking to get lost in a book.

New Review! Love, Snow and Mistletoe Anthology 4.5 Cranky Stars

Love, Snow, & MistletoeLove, Snow, & Mistletoe by Hilaria Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Cranky Stars

Who doesn’t love a sweet Christmas story? What about an anthology of sweet Christmas stories? I know I do and this one didn’t disappoint. Such fun stories from authors such as D.B. James, Alexandria Bishop and Megan Green to name a few. Even though these stories are about established characters, some I’ve never read before, I didn’t feel like I was missing vital parts to a story in order to enjoy the story they wrote.

I laughed and I swooned and I even fanned myself. I discovered some new authors along the way. I think that’s what is fun about anthologies or as I call them story nuggets you find someone new. You get to see old characters finally get their happy ever after. Best of all the proceeds from this anthology support a good cause.

Release Blitz! Unexpected Arrivals by Stephie Walls

Cover Design: Wicked by Design
Release Date: November 20, 2017


It had to be a joke. Any minute now, a van would drive up and Ashton Kutcher would slide the door open, laughing hysterically at my melodramatic performance on the front porch. But nothing happened. The words on the page jumbled into a toxic mess my brain refused to comprehend, much less accept. Please consider this letter as a formal request to arrange a paternity test (DNA). I barely remembered Chelsea Airy. That wasn’t true—we’d gone out once, and we’d been friends for a while after. But I hadn’t heard so much as a peep from her since I’d gotten married. I’d reached out a handful of times, but she’d quit responding and fell off the face of the earth. There hadn’t been a text, an email, a phone call, not even a Facebook message, much less a stork in the last five years. My wife could forgive a lot, but she’d never wanted children—much less another woman’s.
