Review: Kingdom by A.M. Johnson

Kingdom Ebook Cover

*jumps up and down* OH MY GOD. I literally cannot with Johnson’s writing. I literally can’t. She’s one of those fairy tale type of writers I get entranced… I can just gush all day just about her writing. Seriously. SO GOOD.

That’s all you need. :)

This is the sequel to Possession which follows Declan’s older brother, Liam. Can be read as a standalone, but some parts about Declan’s story will be revealed and will spoil Possession for you. I recommend reading the first one!

This is such a quick, fast paced book. This will pull on some heart strings and may drive you crazy if you’re not into angst. But it’s not too bad. ;) I swear, seriously. The only thing you need from this review is her writing. That’s all I need to say. And Liam. Liam, definitely. :)

Review: All That I Am by Rachel Brookes

412dd760a6cbc20192e51c7d2b8717e9e7c4c8d1

Where do I even start!? I absolutely adore this book and Rachel as an author. I’ve read 2 of her others; Be My December and Be My Temptation (which Ben, our MC will appear in!!!!). I was so excited to see this book and to get my hands on it. Ben was literally everything. SOO swoon-worthy. I can just gush all day about him. He’s literally the BEST…

Such a page turner filled with intense scenes. I’m gonna keep this short and sweet; because you just need to read it. ;) You only need that cover to make the decision to read; then Ben will totally be worth it… Just you wait. ;)

Blog Tour: Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

shacking-up-helena-hunting-709x1024

I’ve read a couple of Helena’s books in the past and have loved them! This being no different. I love that there was still that humor that Helena is known for in this book because I was worried going in, the humor wouldn’t be there. I was wrong; because there were so many times I couldn’t help but burst out laughing. Or.. wanting to throw my Kindle and burn it because Bancroft has a FREAKING TARANTULA as a PET. Nope. Just nope. I praise Ruby because if it were me, the mention of even the tiniest spider has me running in the opposite direction for my life.

I also love the male characters Helena brings to life; they are always panty dropping material and Bancroft is definitely no exception to that.

This was definitely a slow burn type of book; but I promise it was worth it in the end. Just wait for Bancroft… I mean, that’s all you need right?! No further explanation!? LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!

I was also excited to see that this will not be the only book in this world; there will be a sequel that will follow (not sure on characters yet). I cannot wait to read the sequel whenever it releases!

Review Blitz: This is Effortless by Kennedy Fox

Title: Checkmate: This is Effortless

Series: Checkmate Duet Series (Drew & Courtney, #2)

Author: Kennedy Fox

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Trope: Friends to Lovers

Photographer & Designer: Sara Eirew

Release Date: April 25, 2017

 

 

 

 

Introducing book 2 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! This friends to lovers romance will have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?

Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.

Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.

She barged into my life and easily became my best friend.

All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.

She’s the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I love her.

Being more than friends and trying to build our future isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Moving forward and creating memories is all I want for us, but when the past continues to come back and haunt me, I’m not so sure she’ll stay for the ride.

Loving her is easy, but losing her will break me. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls us together. In the end, I’ll prove we’re worth the fight, even when the game is far from over.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*

**This is book 2 in the Checkmate Duet Series–a friends to lovers romance. You must read book 1, Checkmate: This is Reckless first. Highly recommended to read the Checkmate Duet, This is War and This is Love first, but not necessary. This can read as a standalone duet.**

Where do I even begin!? I binged the first 3 books last month and couldn’t stop myself. After being recommended and pushed to read these from several of my closest friends, I caved and FINALLY read them. About time right? Well, I’m obsessed and mad at myself for having waited until just last month to finally dive into these amazing books. I love everything about these 2 duos. I just can’t when it comes to these books. I literally “can’t even”. Because these are written in duos, this is not a standalone – book 1 HAS TO be read first before this one.

If you’re new to this series, be ready to meet Mia. Lord, help us all with that character… She has had a part in the storyline in the beginning and really makes her big appearance in this duology. Don’t worry, y’all don’t have to wait with the cliffhanger. Unless you’ve been with this series for at least a couple weeks, you’ve endured that cliffhanger. OH MAN!

These books are impossible to put down. Once you start, you do nothing, and I mean nothing until you hit that final page. Then wonder where the time went and where a real life Drew (or Travis) is…. Just me? I hope not. ;)

If you’re new to my reviews, I’m one who loves to gush. Especially when it’s books I love like these. I struggle to form coherent sentences and you can literally call me a fangirl. I fangirl hard when it comes to books especially when it’s ones I’m passionate about.

Seriously. Guys, if you have not read these books PLEASE go get This is War/This is Love and then we can talk… These books are MUST and the duo that is Kennedy Fox is amazing!!!!

I’m so beyond excited for the next duology. SO. EXCITED.

Review: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

MMB banner 1

 

IMG_5273I met Bianca in an elevator.

 She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

 She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

 Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

 So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

 I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

 I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

 And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

 Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

MY REVIEW: 

AHH!!! A ONE-SITTING BOOK! I devoured this book! I couldn’t put it down for the life of me. I loved the first chapter, it hooked me immediately. It had me cracking up so bad that I was messaging friends talking about it and laughing! I loved Dex and Bianca. So many plot twists in the last few chapters! Especially when it got to the last 20% or so, I literally could not put the book down. I couldn’t break my attention away because I had to know what was going to happen.
Such a fun, yet crazy book. Highly recommend this book!!

Review Blitz: Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels

 

SIY Available Now

 
SayYours AmazonFrom New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new second chance standalone romance.

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.

It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive–everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.

That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.

Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.

 

My Review:

This woman and her writing and stories… They kill me every time. I’ve read and ADORED every single book that’s been published. She really knows how to mess with your emotions. If you’ve read hers before, you know it’s no secret. if you’ve never read, keep this in mind. Tears will be shed, if not, then tears WILL be in your eyes. I’ve cried every book. I’m an emotional person (I’m sure you all know this by now) so it doesn’t take much for the water to start flowing. But seriously. I get sucked into her books immediately. Grace is definitely my favorite female character she’s written so far. She’s the character I’ve related to most in her stories. Not completely, but enough. These Hennington boys… Seriously, I wish emojis worked here because they get my feelings out better than words. It’s easier and faster. :) But seriously, I can’t with these books and I adored Trent and Grace. I love this gang so much I’m not ready for it to be over..

Review Blitz: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

 

egomaniac-available-now

 

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.

I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.

He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.

Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.

I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.

I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.

I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.

The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.

And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

REVIEW:

I absolutely loved this book and was so excited after reading the synopsis (which is very rare for me; once in a blue moon kind of thing), I wanted to get my hands on it.

I totally thought this was my first Vi Keeland book, and being the dummy I am, totally thought it was until I checked. Nope, I completely forgot I read The Baller mid-year last year (I think September or October…). But anyway. Adored this book. Once a certain event occured, I fell hard core. There’s a certain type of genre I like to read (& I’ll completely avoid spoilers so you’ll have to play a guessing game because I am very broad in my likes for books)! LOL I knew I loved Drew when he was first introduced, but as the story progressed, I fell in love with his character more.

Emerie and Drew’s story was fun. I loved every minute of it. I flew through this book, I couldn’t put it down!!

This has the potential of becoming a favorite of the year, but a definite 5 star rating and will recommend every chance I get!
