At twenty-seven Erin Decker has the perfect life; a thriving career, a dream home she shares with her best friend Noelle, and a secure relationship with Robert, her handsome and faithful boyfriend. Or so she thinks.
When her visions of a marriage proposal are met with the ultimate betrayal, Erin finds herself in the arms of sexy and strong-willed distraction, Walker Prescott.

Her summer becomes life changing as she realizes Walker has left her with a tiny piece of himself and no way to find him…until he suddenly shows up and turns her world upside down.

Can Walker be exactly what Erin needs?

Will he give her the perfect life she so desperately craves in the most unexpected way?

Warning: This book is intended for readers 18 and Up. Strong language and explicit sexual scenes.

“You won’t come again until I am balls deep inside you. Do you understand?” His harsh tone coming from next to my ear and then his body lifts off me.
I’m naked, face down, in a strange hotel room, halfway to my second orgasm of the night with a man I barely know. Within seconds, he has returned to my back, but now I feel his arousal at my entrance teasing and taunting as his knees spread my thighs apart. Had he gotten rid of his pants that fast?
His lips are back by my ear, whispering, “I didn’t go to the bar tonight expecting this, but I’m so fucking glad it’s happening. You think my tongue and fingers can make you feel good? Wait until I get inside you. I’ll make you want to be more adventurous.”



Undone by Amy Marie
(#2 of the Unexpected Series)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trent Decker’s life was turned upside down when Alex, his longtime girlfriend, abandoned him and their newborn son. Trying to put order back in his chaotic life, he never expects to fall for his sister’s best friend, Noelle. When another man seems to be stealing her heart, the years of holding his feelings for her inside come out. He lays it all on the line, hoping she chooses him. Noelle’s indecisiveness and an unanticipated visit from his past, causes him to take a step back and focus on making things right for his son, but can he stay away?
Noelle Grant prides herself on her life being in perfect order: a great job, great friends and the occasional fling to satisfy her needs. When her latest conquest, Jace, crashes into her life, she believes he may be the one to keep for more than just a night or two. That is until Trent, her best friend’s sexy, little brother, makes his feelings known and turns her structured world inside out. Exploring her feelings for both men adds complications and when Trent starts to pull away she believes Jace is what she needs. But is he what she wants?

Will Noelle stay with the safer choice or will she risk everything for the one who makes her come completely undone?

I catch up to her just as she gets to the top of the steps and push my front into her back making it flushed against the corner of the railing just out of sight.
Her hair glides through my fingers easily as I push it aside and give her the gentlest of kisses on her shoulder blade. She’s wearing a green tank top and tight jean shorts that barely cover the bottom of her ass. My hands grip her hips and I whisper, “Ask me your question and I’ll give you that kiss you’re begging for.”
Her head leans back exposing her neck to me and I take a tiny nip. “Ask me, Noe.”
“Do you think of me?” She finally gives in.
“All the fucking time.” I kiss just under her ear listening to her quiet moans escape.
“I mean do you think of me…when you’re alone? At night? In the shower?”
“When I stroke myself, Noelle? I told you. All. The. Fucking. Time.” I bite at the edge of her ear. “Now turn around.”
She obeys, and I can see her nipples peaking through her top as her breasts rise and fall rapidly. She wants me and if we were in my bed, I would have her surrendering herself to me.
“Do you want that kiss still?”
Gripping my t-shirt she aggressively brings her lips towards mine. “Desperately.”

Book Review: The Billionaire’s Secret Wife by Nadia Lee

The Billionaire’s Secret Wife

Nadia Lee


Amazon US

Having grown up in a dysfunctional family, Vanessa Pryce knows the futility of relying on a man for happiness. But there is one man who makes her want to ignore the truth: the irresistible Justin Sterling, her no-strings boyfriend since their college days together. Even after they break up, she continues to meet him for passionate encounters while keeping the relationship secret. No need to make public something that’s doomed.

Billionaire tycoon Justin Sterling understands Vanessa’s fears. But he’s about to change the game they’ve been playing… Because when one drunken night of sex leads to pregnancy, he’s going to move heaven and earth to rewrite their rules.

My Rating:

4.5 hearts


Favorite Quote:

 “Justin was her kryptonite, and unlike Superman she was too stupid to stay away from him.”


My Review:

Oh the fantasy of having a rich, sweet, handsome, sensual, generous, supportive, and multi-talented man fall blindly in love with me.  Nadia Lee has an innate talent for making that almost believable.  Her stories generally involve interesting and strong, yet deeply flawed heroines; passionate sensual scenes; and filthy rich people with simply horrid families.  She can be always counted on for a HEA, but she certainly doesn’t make it easy on the couple involved – she makes them work for it.  Ms. Lee’s books are consistently well-written, quick and easy to read, are interconnected yet can be read as stand-alone, and never fail to entertain.

Book Review: The Ship has Sunk by Michelle Graves


The Ship Has Sunk
by Michelle Graves
The Misadventures of Maggie Moore
Publication Date: December 23, 2014
Genres: Contemporary, Humorous, Romance

Tour: The Ship Has Sunk by Michelle Graves




I wanted three things out of life: to be successful, to make use of my journalism degree, and to write for the Life and Style section of a big name paper. Unfortunately, things never work out quite the way I plan. Some place between life’s little twists and turns and a botched assignment, I found myself standing on the edge of the Puget Sound. If I don’t nail this assignment, I’m out of a job and practically homeless thanks to my mom’s edict. The challenges of an unwelcome travel companion aside, life could be far worse. I mean, who doesn’t love Dragon Boat racing?

Favorite Quotes:

“Why they had to wand me, I wasn’t sure.  And not to complain, but I didn’t think the metal detector want was meant to bonk the passengers in the head.  I was pretty sure the TSA agent had been drinking.”

“Righteous indignation didn’t have the same effect when the person raining down the hurt was only wearing one shoe.  Why couldn’t I come up with quick comebacks?  I was a writer for crying out loud!”

“For all I knew his rudeness was some sort of rare disease that was highly contagious.  Oh my gosh, I think I already caught it.  I’d been rude to him for the last almost hour.”

“I think you just crushed seventeen-year-old-me’s dreams.  You want to go steal a child’s ice cream while you’re at it?  Maybe kick a nun?”

“I looked down at my formerly bright green Tom’s, suddenly ashamed I’d brought attention to them.  Not only did they make my feet smell horrid, but they were riddled with holes from where I’d worn them so much.”


My Review:

 Michelle Grave’s The Ship has Sunk, is a fun and feisty novella, that is perfect entertainment for a lazy afternoon of light reading.  Sometimes I need something light to clear the brain wrinkles from heavier genres, and this book was a timely find for me.  Poor Maggie has the worst luck and believes fate and karma have conspired against her.  She is smart and nerdy, but clumsy and apparently cursed with bad timing and questionable social skills.  I enjoyed the light read, humor, and visuals Ms. Grave’s words painted in my head.  The writing is crisp, humorous, and easy to read, but far too short, I wanted to spend more time with the hapless Maggie.

Fracture 3

Book Review: Fractured Volume 3 by Alexis Noelle



Is it possible to want to live two different lives at the same time?
To have your heart and mind completely divided without a clear path?
What do you do when you have to choose between your past, and your present?
Can you cast one aside for the other?
Is it possible to find your happiness once the dust settles, or will you be left all alone.



My Rating:

Favorite Quote:

“The man I’m tied to doesn’t want me.  The man who wants me I can’t have.”

My Review:

Heartache, melodrama then finally – yay – a HEA!  But did she ever make me work for it.  I enjoyed reading about the sweet and tender history she didn’t know she shared with Jacob, and I loved the ending.   I was greatly relieved to read the Epilogue and put it to rest.

Book Review, Giveaway: Mend the Seams – Buried Secrets #3 by Silla Webb


Genre: Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 1st
One flicker of a flame ripped my life apart. For two years now my body has defied my will to live and although the shell of my existence still roams this ungodly world-my heart died along with my wife and son. Their blood is on my hands and living my meaningless life carefree is the ultimate punishment of my self-conviction.
Never lettin’ friends get too close to identify my pain, I suffer in the confines of my own heart, quietly. All they see is the mask-the humbled, empathetic man. Not the guilt stricken tortured soul I truly am.
Until her.
Our worlds collided like vehement waves of the perfect storm thrashing through the sea. Neither of us expected it, but both of us need to be saved from our own pain and destruction.
But the ship sailed too fast.
Fear and confusion consume me and I make the mistake of leaving her lost at sea just when she needs me the most; just when her greatest predator would strike.
Strugglin’ to survive through the wreckage my heart has been battered with, I have to battle my feelings and decide if I’m prepared to fight the darkest pits of hell to save her and Mend the Seams of her fragile heart or let her go completely. After all, she ain’t even mine to claim.

My Rating:

4.5 hearts


Favorite Quotes:

 “Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools and believed by idiots.  I do believe I’d find myself a new pack of friends if I were you gals.  Last I checked, I left high school in 2005, so this idol gossip y’all are dealin’ in is highly unbecoming of you.”

“Damn my conscience has a sharp tongue, and sadly it’s usually right.”

“He looks at you as if you stole the breath from his lungs, as if you’re the only person in his sight.”


My Review:

This volume contained more suspense and had a considerably thicker air of melancholy and regret than the first two, but given the two protagonists and their combined histories of abuse and sorrow, it was to be expected.  Mend the Seams was full of anguish, melodrama, and heart squeezing despair.  Ms. Webb has an evil knack for maintaining the tension and despondency, while turning me inside out, even when I don’t want to go there.  I like most of Sella Webb’s characters, but I completely adore Luke, and want a Happy Ever After for him more than any other character in the series.  While I am no fan of angst, I am hopelessly addicted to this series and must know what happens to these larger than life personalities.  Although I am desperately hoping the next volume is significantly lighter in tone, and with a return of the clever wit, sass, and steam that I have come to expect from the talented Ms. Webb.
