The Wright Love by K.A. Linde




The Wright Love -- May 15th

I have the perfect life. Until the day my husband tragically dies. Being a single mom and widow was never part of the plan. When David Calloway enters my life, I have no room for love in my heart. But he’s determined to do right by me. Could he be the Wright love? The Wright Love is the first book in the Wright Love Duet, and Sutton and David's story will conclude in The Wright One—coming May 29th! Get ready for your newest binge read.  

MY REVIEW
 The Wright Love by K.A. Linde is the first book in her new contemporary romance duet, Wright Love.  As part of her Wright series, this duet includes the whole family of cross-over characters from The Wright Brother, The Wright Boss, The Wright Mistake & The Wright Secret.  You’ll follow Sutton, the youngest Wright as she journeys to piece back together “…a shattered mess inside.”  a year after the tragic loss of her beloved husband to “…find a tiny piece of the butterfly inside myself that had once been so joyous.”.  With David, the only person who lets her just feel.  “No bullshit. No expectations.”


Told in first person from dual perspectives, this story will take you from “…cathartic, wonderful, horrible, painful…” all the way to “Kind, sweet, happy and kind of wonderful.”  Filled with “…devotion and desire.”  Sutton is surrounded by a family after my own heart “They were wild and prone to addictions with skeletons in their closets, but they were mine. And I loved them.”  This fast paced read is as genuine in its gut-wrenching grief, as it is in a mothers love & conflict of the heart.  Secrets you won’t see coming are revealed – a cliff hanger that will have you gasping out loud!


Another enjoyable read from Linde, whose ability to bring a blend of romance & emotion can’t be beat.  I love Suttons strength – “She’d lost so much. She’d endured. And here she was, still as beautiful as ever, not falling apart because of it.” & the way David doesn’t take, but understands grief & heals with his soul heart.  This story - “…was heart-wrenching. And wonderful.”
 

On the edge of my seat waiting for the conclusion to Sutton & David’s story The Wright One releasing this month.

Tulsa (The Crow Brothers) by S.L. Scott

 

Blurb

From New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, comes a hot new rock star romance that will sweep you off your feet and leave you with a smile.

The rumors are true. At least where I’m concerned.

Drummers hit it harder and do it better.

Women love me and I love them. But I like to think of myself as a sensitive soul trapped in a lady-killer’s body. Not so surprisingly, I’ve been called cocky a time or two. What can I say? We can’t all be boy scouts.

Nikki Faris has thrown off my rhythm. With her red lips, smart aleck mouth, short skirts, long legs, and blue-sky eyes, the beautiful lead singer has become a complete distraction on this tour.

She loves to give me a hard time when all I want to do is give her the pleasure of my hard—time right back.

Tulsa Crow can save his pick up lines, great eight-pack abs, and cute dimples to use on someone else. My band earned their spot on The Resistance’s tour just like The Crow Brothers. I’m not going to blow it getting sidetracked by a cocky rock star that wants to sleep his way through the states. I’ve been called a name or two, but easy isn’t one of them.

But the best intentions with him turn into a walk of shame for me. Only, I don’t feel shame. Instead, I’m doing the very thing I said I wouldn’t—falling for a playboy.

We make sinful music when we’re on the road, but what happens to our melody when the tour ends?
 
 
Tulsa, the second in S.L. Scott's The Crow Brothers series, just like the first book Spark, this one was not only worth the wait, but a awesome 5 star match.  Such a smooth start, with a ending that came far to soon.  Tulsa is the youngest & most free sibling & member of the Crow Brothers Band.  Nikki the little sister to her twin brother & voice to the Faris Wheel band.  Neither of them are looking for anything more than making solid careers of their music & loving their families to the fullest.  
 
Told in first person, from dual perspectives, this story will bring you angst & romance, a secret, a shock & a surprise or two, before circling back again.  Funny & sexy "I have no idea if he'd live up to that smirk, but I'm not opposed to finding out." With a chemistry that is more than physical from the start.  These characters are full of quick wit & snark, talented & dreamy "He winks. I swoon. We're a bad habit I don't want to break."  Family & friends who transcend love, devotion, support & understanding better than anyone else "Whether bandmate or brother, we stick together."  The kind of strong connections between characters that make sacrifices, take risks & overcome what life throws at them to heal heart & soul.  Characters that are "...real, raw, honest, and genuine."
 
"Scars don't matter. Trust. Respect. Love. Communication is key."

 I just love Tulsa - a real man, for a real woman.  Nikki - "I became the hero of my own story." just wow. The love of music & performing these characters have & the way S.L. puts us as the readers right there with them - awesome "This is church, the audience our disciples. As we preach, they pray."  Two words A-MEN  
"Live life to the fullest and always give 'em you good side."

Such a wonderful read.
 
Looking forward to Rivers story coming this summer.

Co-Ed by Rachel Van Dyken

rvd-coed_1

BLURB
Four guys.
Constant moaning.
And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn.
They don't discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I'm wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door.
My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies.
But the rest of the college campus?
They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship service that makes big promises.
Breakup? They'll glue you back together again.
Depressed? They have the magic pill.
Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you'll forget all about it.
And broken hearts? Well, that's their specialty. They'll fix you
For a price…
I swore I wouldn't get involved.
But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn't put up with their BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull.
They. All. Charged.
But one holds my attention above the rest.
Knox Turner looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more appealing by the day. Though he's hiding something — all of them are. And the closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.
You've read reverse harem books before — but you've never read one like this. It's not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…
Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren't patient men.
Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You're welcome.

 

MY REVIEW
 Sexy, funny, angsty, with a twist that will give you goose bumps, Co-Ed by Rachel Van Dyken is another hit you won't see coming.  I mean, you will now, because I'm telling you - but you know what I'm saying.  I was a little skeptical going in, with the whole reverse harem angle, but have to say it worked & I loved it!  Who wouldn't be interested in a group of guys referred to as Pleaser Ponies?  Hello. "Our shit was legendary."

  Told in first person, from dual perspectives, enter Shawn - a girl with a guys name.  Wow, I wonder what that's like... oh wait!  Definite attention grabber for me personally.  This is a book you won't want to put down.  A fast read "...dripping with so much sexual innuendo..." these characters are witty, sexy & fun, making it hard not to fall for all of them.  Taking a serious & important turn, working through heartbreak & loss "...tender and aggressive, dangerous and deep."  A story about fresh starts & "...making a choice to forgive, rather than condemn."  Of hope, love, loyalty & friendship of epic proportions "...people who cared about me for whatever crazy reasons they had, ones who would drop anything to make sure I was okay, safe."  
 
Such a wonderful read - the kind with a message that resonates. 
 "It was hope."

Rome's Chance (Reapers MC #6.6) by Joanna Wylde

 

About ROME’S CHANCE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.

She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.

The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.

Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.

When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.

This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

 
MY REVIEW
 
ROME’S CHANCE, a wonderful new novella in Joanna Wylde's Reapers MC series.  Told in first person from dual perspectives, this second chance romance novella starts & doesn't stop.  Sarcastic humor I couldn't get enough of "I tossed a double pack of Trojans into the cart. Cheaper than a baby shower." Angst & passion & action, with a heartbreaking twist that will take your breath away.  Sexy in "...the crooked smile that'd spontaneously combusted my panties." kind of way.  With chemistry that has been sparking between these characters from the start.  "Devastating and intense, but very gentle. Sweet."  Where reality meant growing up to soon & taking chances is foreign territory.  "It felt like freedom-the chance to experience something new and undiscovered."  Building friendships when least expected & coming together to make a strong family stronger.  Working through heartache toward another sunrise. 
 
"That was the thing about fire...It might be terrifying, but it also cleared the path for new growth." 
 
I love Rome & his tender, yet possessively stubborn nature, sexy & strong "He was evil, I decided. Pure, delicious evil."  Randi, sacrificing her own happiness to ensure safety & security for the ones she holds most dear, even though at her age, "Adulting was bullsh*t."  It was nice to get cameo's from Reapers MC characters we've grown to love.  Enjoyed this story so much, over far to fast!

Chaser (Dive Bar #3) by Kylie Scott


BLURB
Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring.. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods. Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she’s pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?

MY REVIEW
Chaser, book 3 in Kylie Scott's Dive Bar series, one of my favorite reads this year.  Told in first person, from dual perspectives – I’ve got to admit I haven’t always been a fan of Eric’s.  You feel the same?  Well it’s time “…to give Eric a break.” & dive into somewhat of a coming of age story – working through grief, regrets, self-awareness & mending fences.  So funny “It turns out that bar keeping skills actually do come in handy in real-life situations.” sassy banter, sexy & sweet…”Sweet turned to sin in no time.”  Chemistry that is instant, with angst, as Eric & Jean fight against what feels right, in favor of what friends & their over thinking minds are telling them.  Friends who are family & of course a chance to check in on the rest of the Dive Bar gang we’ve come to know & love.  
“And that’s what everything was about, really. Family.”

I love that Eric strives to be the best version of himself & puts his heart on the line while doing it.  I enjoyed so much that these characters really saw & accepted each other.  And Jean – was it cool that I share a home town with her… Jacksonville, Florida – you bet!  Was it even better that she’s a new mom going it alone & acknowledges “I totally get why they use sleep deprivation as a form of torture now.” Absolutely!  All of that with the supportive family & this is a winner.

Justify Me (Lexi Blake Crossover Collection Book 3) by J. Kenner

Crossover_J Kenner_300dpi

BLURB

McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade has no intention of returning to Los Angeles after his brief stint as a consultant on mega-star Lyle Tarpin’s latest action flick. Not even for Natasha Black, Tarpin’s sexy personal assistant who’d gotten under his skin. Why would he, when Tasha made it absolutely clear that—attraction or not—she wasn’t interested in a fling, much less a relationship. But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that—no matter what has hurt her in the past—he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.

MY REVIEW
Justify Me by J. Kenner, book 4.5 of her Stark series & part of the new Crossover Collection from Lexi Blake.  Finally the novella I'd been expecting from this crossover.  With only a few crossover characters, this story was easy to get into & fast paced enough to give a nice balance for fans of Julie & Lexi alike. 

Protective, possessive, loyal & sexy.  I enjoyed the way the characters pasts & the strong friendships intertwined.  Oh so sexy, filled with "...heated passion and sweaty, naked nights..."  Secrets & interesting twists are revealed, as a mystery is solved.  Another fan favorite from J. Kenner "...she does write incredibly sexy books..."

Her Guardian Angel (Lexi Blake Crossover Collection Book 2) by Larissa Ione


BLURB
After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he’s a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime – and his playmates – just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D’Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he’s drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn’t know existed.

Suzanne is an earthbound angel on her critical first mission: protecting Declan from an emerging supernatural threat at all costs. To keep him close, she hires him as her bodyguard. It doesn’t take long for her to realize that she’s in over her head, defenseless against this devastatingly sexy human who makes her crave his forbidden touch.

Together they’ll have to draw on every ounce of their collective training to resist each other as the enemy closes in, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing could have prepared them for the menace to their lives…or their hearts.
MY REVIEW

Her Guardian Angel by Larissa Ione, book 6 of her Demonica Underworld series & part of the new Crossover Collection from Lexi Blake.  A lot of connecting of  crossover characters, needed to get the story moving. A little overwhelming for a first time reader of the Demonica Underworld series to catch up on.  Definitely at a disadvantage having not read books from either series.  That said, would recommend for fans who have read the series.
Hit the ground running with steamy chemistry & sexy banter.  Enjoyed the paranormal concepts, & incredibly sexy, connection between this possessive man & a strong woman.  Would have liked a little more angst, but overall, a fan favorite for sure.
