Review: Asher Mayson is the ultimate Alpha Man! I mean if I could pick any book boyfriend in the history of boyfriends it would be him! I love love love this book so much! I literally can read this book so many times because I love the story, I love Asher, I love November and just everything about this story! November is the bom.com she is so strong with all that she has gone through and still coming out on the other side amazing! She deserves someone like Asher to take care of her, love her and be her companion through life! I really really hope that there is a real Asher Mayson out there and that I find him for myself! I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone that loves a good romance and loves an Alpha!

Jameson

Book: Jameson (Brothers Ink #1)
Author: Nicole James

Summary: Jameson O’Rourke owns the primo tattoo shop in town, one he’s worked hard to build. And in his industry, he’s the current ‘it’ boy, the reigning King of Ink. His career is on fire, so hot television has even come calling. And as a result, the town bad-boy has now become the town’s favored son. Ava Hightower needs his face on her flyers, if she is to have any hope of her charity gala and bachelor auction being a success. Unfortunately, they get along like oil and water. He’s a hardheaded, controlling jerk, and she’s already had one run-in with the man. Asking him, of all people, for help is the last thing she wants to do. Not exactly a match made in heaven.Jameson doesn’t think too highly of Miss Hightower, either. To him, she’s just an uptight, stuck-up, know-it-all; a little Miss Goody-two-shoes. Not in a million years was she the type that he’d have anything to do with. Unfortunately she is also on the city council, and therefore has the ability to screw with his business.He needed her help once before, and she shot him down.Now the tables are turned, and she needs his help. Well, my, my, sweetheart, karma can be a cold-hearted bitch.But, hey, maybe he could work this to his advantage.You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours, and all that crap.So they cut a deal. One he has no intention of ever having to fulfill, because he plans to make it impossible for her to keep her end of it.She thought she could outlast him. Guess again, sweet thing. She may be a stubborn woman, but she’s met her match. And he has no intention of letting her win this game.Be warned, sweetheart, because the King of Ink has plans to push your limits in ways you’ve never imagined.

Review: This is my first book by this Author and I am hooked into this series! The tension between the two characters is so intense you can’t help but get caught up in it. When Jameson finally shoves Ava against the wall I thought I was going to combust! It was so HOT!!! It was so intense and heated but was like a 3 on the meter of what is to come! Both Jameson and Ava are deep characters with a lot of deep issues that they have to work out that really create the story into what it is! I loved it and loved the whole storyline between the two! Plus who doesn’t love a good story about a once poor now rich tattoo artist who is taking care of his brothers! I mean great storyline from that alone! I can’t wait for the next brothers books and I hope they are just as great as this!

Holding Out

Book: Holding Out
Author: Lila Rose

Summary: Zara Edingway has not had an easy go of life but she, her daughter and her best friends are making the best of it. What Zara doesn’t know is that life is about to get a whole lot more complicated. This is due to Talon Marcus president of the Hawks MC and her neighbor. He has had his eye on Zara for awhile now and is ready to stake his claim but is going slow because he doesn’t want to scare her away. But when trouble starts to come her way Talon doesn’t hold anything back and will use every available tool to keep her and her family safe!

Review: I love a good motorcycle/MC book and I also love that are a ton of books out there with varying degrees of how “real” the MC lifestyle really is. This book is definitely more a laid back/ not so in your face with what actually goes on in the clubhouse. So if you are not into the total MC scene but you do love a great Alpha story then this is your kind of book! Zara is HILARIOUS especially when she gets together with her friend, the things that come out of her mouth are amazing! I also love the total Alphaness (new word maybe???)  that is Talon and how insanely hot he sounds when he is taking care of Zara/telling her what to do/ just overall being a crazy Alpha man!

Just Say When

Book: Just Say When
Author: Kaylee Ryan

Summary: Ava Evans has been secretly in love with her older brother’s best friend for years. She’s been burying herself and her feelings in school for the last two years. By chance she runs into her crush Nate at the gym that he owns. Now neither of them can hide their feelings an longer and they are falling deeper and deeper in love. The only problem is they don’t know how Ava’s brother will react to their relationship.

Review: If you’ve never read a Kaylee Ryan book you NEED to!!! 1. They are amazing. 2. The stories are super powerful and well written. 3. The Characters and plot lines are the best! I especially recommend this to readers who like a good romance story that doesn’t have to be x-rated. (Not that the sexual tension isn’t extreme because it is, but they are not near as graphic as other books out there!) I love stories of lost loves/denied loves and this book is no exception to that love. I enjoy the simplicity to the story but it draws you in because of the depth to the characters! I think in my mind Kaylee Ryan’s biggest pro in her writing is what an amazing job she does on developing the characters and making each one vital to the story. You want to be friends with these people! I also love love love Nate in the story and is totally an amazing book boyfriend! I love his protectiveness and dead honesty with Ava and I wish more men were like this in real life!

Highway Don't Care


Book: Highway don’t care (Freebirds #2)
Author: Lani Lynn Vale

Summary: All Ember wants is Gabe, but right now she is mad at him. However when Ember is in trouble the first person she reaches out to is Gabe. When Gabe hears her phone call he drops everything and runs to save her and protect her. Ember’s life is now on the line, Gabe and his fellow soldiers will do anything to protect not only Ember but those around her. While they are fighting against a gang they run into more unexpected problems, what happens though when these problems start to work together?

Review: I love Lani’s books! 1. The Herione and Hero are always on point and super amazing together! 2. The Sex Scenes are HOT!!! 3. I want the Hero for myself 4. The Sex Scenes are HOT!!! 5. They are such well written stories that suck you in and take you along for a crazy and HOT ride.
That being said this is another one of her books that fit right in and has a great story! My only little “meh” to the plot line is that there seems to be so much going on so fast that it takes away from the overall storyline. I mean how many times can a character get hurt and bad stuff happen to them - this is not real life and if it is I am so sorry for them! That being said the plot is still amazing and it is still a book that I have reread and would read again and again!

Bender

Book: Bender (The Core Four #1)
Author: Stacy Borel

Summary: Keegan needs out of her house A.S.A.P.! She loves her family but if she doesn’t leave and get out and soon her dream of becoming a Nurse will fly of the window. She hunts for a place to stay and for a roommate and she thinks she has found the perfect place, that is until she meets her roommate. Camden is a sexy man with a crap attitude, or so Keegan believes. The two of them live with constant sexual attraction and the real question is will they give into that attraction or will they walk away from each other.

Review:
So I super enjoyed this book overall! I love Keegan and Camden but really sold me on the story was the side characters - I love love love Macy and Dodger and can’t wait for their book! If you also like book that are super hot and graphic with sex scenes this book is definitely for you! The scene in Camden’s gym - you need to check it out - It made me want to join a gym just so I could explore this! As much as I enjoyed those scenes and the book I did think that overall there was a lot of different situations going on and so the plot would get confusing and you never felt like you got a break from one bad situation to the next. Also I totally get Keegan dating other people when she and Camden weren’t together, but sleeping with said person while Camden is home - Yeah no. He should of been storming in and flipping out on the dude - but this is just my personal preference in my book boyfriends! :) Side note: The amount of Baseball references was the BOMB since I’m a huge baseball fan too! Overall a great book that I would recommend to anyone and I can’t wait for the future books in the series!

My Guardian

Book: My Guardian (Bewitched and Bewildered #6)
Author: Alanea Alder

Summary: Meryn and Beth have been summoned by Beth’s uncle to the Vampire city Noctem Falls. Magnus needs their help to figure out what is going on in his city. His head Warrior Adriel is excited to have Beth back in the city but he is preoccupied with nightly nightmares. What he doesn’t realize is that these are actually mate dreams. He is shocked when he does meet a refugee tiger shifter named Eva. He is shocked because she is his mate and he is more than ready to have her as his. Can Eva, Meryn and Beth though figure out what is going on the vampire city or is this problem  even bigger than them?

Review: With each book this series has become my favorite series of all time and my go to to reread and to tell people about. I loved the transition of them going from the shifter city to know being in Noctem Fall the city of the vampires. We have some of our favorite characters there but we are know introduced to a new set of characters and new unit of soldiers. I love how Alanea does such a great job crafting each and every character and the ease of which they fit into the storyline. There are a ton of new people introduced but I was never once was confused. Then we have the amazing head warrior Adriel who is so proper but has then totally quirky side that comes out every now and then to shock you! Plus I love Eva and wish I could be here when I grow up! She is hilarious and completely knows how to handle Meryn so it makes the story even better! Honestly every time I read any books from this series I get sucked up into the world and I just love it!

Tempting Tatum

Book: Tempting Tatum
Author: Kaylee Ryan

Summary: Tatum Thompson’s life was going perfectly when in an instant everything changes. Wanting a fresh start she moves from Ohio to Tennessee with her best friend. While there she meets the Richard’s family most especially she meets Blaise, a volunteer firefighter tattoo artist. Blaise has been hurt in the past and he usually has his guard up, but when he meets Tatum his walls are completely shattered. Blaise has to work extra hard to show Tatum that he wants her and not for one night but forever.

Review: I love Kaylee Ryan and her books SOOOO much! This was my first book of hers and since reading it I have been hooked to this book and to her as a writer. This book sucked me in, and tossed my heart around! Tatum is a character who has been through so much and you can’t help but root for her and fall in love with her. I love her strength and courage and can’t help but be inspired that there are actually millions of women who go through incredibly hard situations and come out on the other side! More power to you! Blaise is a straight up Alpha Male but with the cutest sweet side and I totally was wishing he was real (for myself of course!) Plus the secondary characters are awesome and add to the book and during the scenes you feel like you are a part of it. I loved this story so much and it's one where I have reread it and plan on rereading it many more times.

Boomtown

Title: Boomtown (Freebirds #1)
Author: Lani Lynn Vale

Summary: Cheyenne was having a pity party for herself at the bar, it was her birthday she was alone and just wanted to meet a man who could rock her world. When Sam sees her at the bar he knows she is his but he doesn’t think he deserves someone like her! He takes her home but the next day is gone. However they live in a small connected world that throws them together and they must hold on tight to each other because someone is out there trying to get to them both.

Review: I Love this book and to know this is an author's first book means it can only get even better! I love that Cheyenne is totally crazy and nuts but is also super family oriented and willing to help out her brother by raising his daughter while he was away in Iraq. There was a ton of suspense in this book that kept you reading as quick as you could trying to figure out who the bad guy was and when he would strike next. I loved the tension of the suspense that was then broken up with some amazingly hot Sex scenes and then some hysterical banter between all the different characters. I also read in some other reviews that people were unhappy with the editing but honestly for me I was so sucked into the story and what was happening that I didn’t even notice any major errors! Obviously editing mistakes can and do happen but the story was so beyond amazing that I am never going to take away from an author's star rating for a few grammatical errors (especially when I know if I wrote a book the whole thing would be one big error!) My only “downfall” to the book was that it was just a bit too long and some of the things that happened with the “bad guy” didn’t always seem necessary. Plus not going to lie the funeral totally did me in (I know it might have been necessary, but holy moly was I a hot mess during that scene)  So overall I just loved this book and story and the cast of characters.

Max

Title: Max (Carter Brother’s #4)
Author: Lisa Helen Gray

Summary: Max Carter is a notorious playboy and overall general bad boy and he likes it that way! He doesn’t care about getting in trouble and when he is punished for vandalising a church he knows that even his community service won’t change him or his ways. What he doesn’t know is that through this community service he will introduced to Lake Miller who will change his life forever. Lake is just trying to get through life, surviving one day at a time when she is found sleeping at the church and is taken in by the Carter family. She has no time for Max and his playboy ways at first, but in time the two must work together and learn from each other about relationships and what they mean.

Review: Max just like his brothers is an amazing character that makes you laugh, makes you cry and in the end makes your heart melt! I love Lisa Helen Grey as an author and highly recommend all of her books, but this series has a very special place in my heart! I love the 5 brothers, the women who come into their lives and the side characters who make their family complete. I love a book series that draws you in and is so well written that you feel a part of the book and the family! Max is one of my favorite characters in all of the other books and so I couldn’t wait for his book to come out! I loved the story and even the crazy sad parts where *spoiler* Max lets Lake go to be with her family is so incredibly moving that I cried reading about both of their hearts breaking! Lake and Max go through some troubling times in this story but my favorite thing is that the “hard” parts are so sprinkled in with the happy, hot and funny parts that you are able to recover and move on without the book being to sad. I love the relationship that comes about with Max and Lakes twin brother and how Lisa handles introducing new characters into the story that makes you feel they have been along for the ride. Some of my other favorite parts include - The Bachelor/Bachelorette party!!!! (So funny/sexy/spicy red hot!!) Seeing Hope all the time :) and just the general craziness that comes from the Carter Family! I also CANNOT wait for the next book! Maverick’s story looks to be an amazing addition/finale to this series!
