KANDY

I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I’d tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.

The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand–thought everything was perfect–but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.

CANE

She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.

My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.

After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn’t sane–not by a long shot.

I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.

And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

Picking right up where we left with Wanting Mr. Cane (Cane #1), All heck has broken out and everyone is involved! There’s Blood, there’s a concussion, there’s someone in jail… I don’t know which way to turn!!! 

How could love between two be so hard?

Kandy is now at the University of Notre Dame (Go IRISH!!) getting into the grove of living on her own, going to classes, and being a part of the baseball team. The only thing missing is Cane. He is in her head 24/7.

Cane is trying to smooth out so many fires going on in his life. I’m willing to call him up and let him take care of me too…. Just saying 😉 I have fallen for Mr. Cane, he is everything and more. 

Just when we think all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed…

There’s so many people out to get these two. 

The ending…OMG never in a zillion years would I have expected this one!!! Pick up that flip phone hidden in your dresser behind toys and undies…Because that text… I NEED BOOK 3 NOW!!!!

When love hits you , it doesn’t care about age or color or even if it’ll hurt. 

description

And it hits hard!! Kandy Jennings is infected with love, the same ailment is eating up Quentin Cane alive. They’re so far apart, yet just a memory away in their souls. The story is is flowing way past the tragic mark almost into ugly-cry territory. Shanora has dipped her pen in pain & tears, impregnated it with misery and angst. I felt sorry, oh so hurtfully sorry for them. Why couldn’t the world leave them alone!!
My life was unusual. I only prayed my abnormal life would make me resilient one day. 

description

They’re just loving for God’s sake, not hurting anybody!!. Though I did understand Derek, I wanted to plead to his fatherly heart, have mercy you world!!
To say that I was teary eyed most of the time, is an understatement. I had in my prejudiced mind, assumed that Kandy was too young, what does she know about love, but as they say about people who assume……..
The book moved me so much, just spoke to my optimistic heart. I hope they get peace & happiness in their ever after and forever after. The utter pain that Kandy goes through, being judged and ridiculed, thrown out and alienated, it was heartbreaking 
Only a slut would be okay with sneaking around with a man who was nearly twice her age. Only a slut would fuck her father’s best friend, ruin everything, and still choose him afterward. 

description

One noteworthy thing here, shanora took a path less traveled and made Cane pretty strong. I mean he’s panty melting sexy and all, but he’s the calmness centers him, which in turn tethers Kandy and they don’t waste time in denial for long.
As shanora shows they have an uphill battle, actually more like Everest-mine trek!!
But we’re all in it together. We are right besides Kandy-cane, every step of the way, rooting for them and praying for them, and as long as they hold hands and eyes on each other, destinies should combine
when we’re together, it’s like nothing else matters. But when we’re apart, all of the demons start to pop up and reality is shoved into our faces and it’s harder to breathe— harder to think clearly.” 

description

“Should” being the operative word because as depicted in the end, shanora has a sinister twist planned and WTF is going on here ?!!😮

I never imagined that I would fall for cowboys! But after this second visit to Julep Ranch, I’m ready to save a horse and ride a cowboy!!!

Jarret has a heart of gold. Will do anything and everything to protect his family and farm. The pact the 4 of them made that day always in the fore thought. Scars to remind them. One by one till peace is found. 

When the sassy, back bone stronger than cement, Maybe arrives at the bar… Jarret has guard up. There’s something there but only time will tell what she is up to.

Maybe is out to find answers. Everything has pointed her to Julep Ranch. What she didn’t expect was to find someone who would cause her to step back and find out who she truly is. 

Family is certainly not made up of blood. We find that in Buckled, family is who you are branded with. 

Absolutely loved Jarret and Maybe. Now I’m ready for Lorne’s story! And to find out what happens with what they acquired that doesn’t belong to them!!!

Welcome Back to Julep Ranch. Here 4 young friends grew up, fell in love, struck eternal friendship bonds and they still hold those ties sacred, come what may. And Pam throws a a LOT their way.
The mood is reminiscent and rebuilding. It’s a “lying-in-wait” kind of vibe you can feel.

description

Pam has a gift. She can shove a fist in your rib cage and squeeze your heart tight. She can make you FEEL! She can make you fall in love with bad boys, make you root for them, make you cry with them and then make you smile too. Her stories stay with you ALWAYS. Nobody writes angst and desperate love like Pam.

description

Buckled is following KNOTTED, the story that introduced us Jake & Jarrett Holston, Connor & Lorne and their Blood Vow. The circumstances leading up to the vow were dreadful and life-shattering, to say the least. Though Jake & Conor are limping back to normal, Lorne is being missed, and Jarrett is still a third wheel. The boys are working hardest to restore their Julep Ranch, troublesome situations are being dealt with, threats are being removed but still it’s a long way to go before happiness and prosperity returns for good in the grief stricken & devastated Ranch. She made my heart cry tears of blood in KNOTTED, the despair and bereavement still continues , a tad diluted though. 

description

Maybe Quinn visits the Julep Ranch . Her motives are ambiguous, her movements suspect. She’s on a truth finding mission, which puts her on a collision path with Jarrett. Sluething on naive Maybe’s part is embarassing and hilarious . Hearts collide, beat and get tangled together. The story floats on air from here. Their lust pink cloud getting rosier and fluffier and I, as a reader, am on a high just watching them explore each other, body and soul.
He shackled my heart with his, and I wish he would lose the key to that lock. The steady beat of his love against mine empowers me, strengthens me, makes me believe that as long as we’re together, it’s enough. We’re enough. 

description

The thunderstorm scene was explosive, orgasmic and euphoric. I still am getting goosebumps picturing it. So powerful in love, so intense in passion, so perplexing in dejection , this story will echo and resonate in your heart. The music will bounce off of your walls, will drown you , yet won’t let you drown
Cold drops, sultry air , and the distant rumble of thunder— there’s something celestial about kissing this man in the rain. It’s a frenzied moment that refuses to wait. An outpour of love desperate for connection, uncaring about soaked clothes or chilled skin. It’s a rebellion against threatening winds and depressing conditions. Nature brings the rain, but we stand against it, united in mutual need. 

description

I felt overwhelming, staggering sentiments. I loved and fell in love, hurt and was ready to hurt, was destroyed and ready to kill, I was rescued and was ready to live happily ever after. 
I still have a long way to go with these characters. I’m definitely sure next book will be explosive & provide the closure so badly needed .

Excerpt

“What happened?” Dropping the backpack on the bed, I rush toward him. “Do we have to—”

He catches my face between his big, rough palms and slants his lips across mine in a hard, violently hungry kiss. We didn’t make love last night—I passed out early from jet lag and Peter considerately let me sleep—and I can taste the pent-up lust in this kiss, the dark fire that always burns between us.

Backing me up against the bed, Peter tears off my clothes, then his own, and then, with no preliminaries, he thrusts into me, stretching me with his thickness, battering me with his hard heat. I cry out at the shock of it, but he doesn’t stop, doesn’t slow down. His eyes glitter fiercely as he stretches my arms above my head, his hands shackling my wrists, and I realize it’s something more than lust driving him today, something savage and desperate.

My body’s response is swift and sudden, like oil catching fire. One minute, I’m gritting my teeth at the merciless force of his thrusts, and the next, I’m hurtling over the edge and screaming as I splinter in brutal ecstasy. There’s no relief in this orgasm, only a lessening of impossible tension, but even that doesn’t last. The second peak, as violent as the first, comes right on its heels, and I cry out at the agonizing spasms, the pleasure ripping me apart as he drives into me, over and over again, riding me through the climax and beyond.

I don’t know how long Peter fucks me like that, but by the time he comes, spurting burning-hot seed inside me, my throat is raw from screaming and I’ve lost count of how many orgasms he’s wrung out from my battered body. The hard muscles of his chest gleam with sweat as he withdraws from me, and I lie there panting, too dazed and exhausted to move.

He leaves, then returns a few moments later with a wet towel, which he uses to pat at the wetness between my legs. “Sara…” His voice is rough, thick with emotion as he leans over me to brush a strand of hair off my sweat-dampened forehead. “Ptichka, I—”

A hard knock on the door jolts us both.

“Peter.” It’s Yan, his voice as sharp as earlier this morning. “You need to hear this. Now.”

Swearing under his breath, Peter jumps off the bed, finds his discarded jeans in the pile of clothes on the floor, and pulls them on without bothering with underwear. The look he gives me over his shoulder is fierce, almost angry, but he doesn’t say anything as he strides out of the room.

I sit up, wincing at the soreness between my thighs, and force myself to get up and take another quick rinse before getting dressed again.

I have no idea what’s going on, but I’m getting an awful premonition.

DISGRACE_RELEASE BLITZ

Disgrace, an all-new romantic and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is LIVE!

bcherry-disgrace-amazon.jpg

Synopsis:

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

5 Always and Always Stars


Zoom in…
Once you zoom in, you realize we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red and even monster’s hearts can break. Just got to remember to always zoom in. 

Brittainy Cherry can write a book like no other!!! Takes everyday people and their love and heartbreak…wraps it up in a novel that you cant stop reading. So many ah ha moments in her book that not only gives you the right feelings but opens your eyes to seeing life in a better way. 

They’re gonna bleed you out till you’re nothing and then they’re gonna ask how you died. 

That is life… The people who are the first to run to you to find out what is happening in your life, they are always the first ones to run their mouth. Spreading the rumors, talking about you like you are an imagination. With Grace, she was raised the PC (Preachers Child) and was always expected to let everything roll off her shoulders. Sit up, hold your head higher and let it go. For goodness sakes, her father was the preacher…cant let rumors bring down the church and all that her father and his father and his father worked so hard building.

Every person deserves a haven. A place they can go to breathe fresh air, because sometimes life can be toxic. 

Jackson has been living the dark life for quite some time. Snapping that wrist band, taking the sledge hammer to the junk cars out back. Vowing to not break sobriety. Although the feeling he got when he was using was outstanding, once you came down, you still were in the dark. 

I just imagined that a man who was that built upstairs couldn’t be that built down below. 

Grace and Jackson are from two different lifestyles. Yet they couldn’t be more alike and better for each other. The families hate each other and have raised their children to hate each other. But does anyone know the reason behind all the hatred these families hold against each other? 

Absolutely LOVED this book! As with all of this authors books, you are sucked in and held hostage until you finish. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath and I shook my head. This book gave me everything I need in a book.

Powerful Emotions 
This book packs a punch, will knock you down, make you walk through a gamut, you’ll look at the walls adorned with beautiful artwork of human relationships. A girl is on a brink of a major upheaval in life, which throws everything she’s ever believed in up in disarray.
Our lives had been so tangled together that I was almost certain he took parts of me when he untied our love.
Who was I supposed to be now?
Was I even still a person of my own accord?
Without Finley, did I even exist?
 

To find a way out of this fog of deceptions and betrayals, she finds a beacon of hope in the town’s monster. Together they support each other and try and fix their broken lives. The strongest underlying message is empowerment of women. Not lay down and be treated as a doormat, but find a voice and follow it, shed the shackles of their subjugation. Believing in themselves rather than feeling lost without men.creating their own identity and not losing their sparkle in shadows of their men
Love was a messy emotion that didn’t walk a straight line. It worked in waves and loops of ups and downs. It was a screwy emotion that could somehow still exist amidst the ultimate heartbreak and betrayal. .

description

The most amazing thing about picking up a Brittainy Cherry book is that you’re guaranteed to have an emotional storm in your heart. Sympathies swirl and twist , uplift and drown, ebb and flow , sweeping you in a river swollen with moods , tempers and sentiments. The story pierced straight in my heart with its honesty and passion. My eyes were overflowing and my insides were twisting. I rooted for Grace & Jackson, cried for them, was ready to fight their families the town, the entire world for them.
I wished there was a way to stop it— to shut off the love faucet, to make my heart stop feeling.
But still, it felt.
Still, it burned.
 

description

They go through so much torment, such anguish, such conflict, I was done. I was ready to take a hammer and beat up a car or something, trash a shop, break some bottles,  anything to vent my anger. Every couple Brittainy creates, they’re beautiful but broken souls, victims of life and its circumstances.

description

In a small town in Georgia, A damsel meets a monster and she zooms in close enough to see deep into  his beautiful soul hidden behind the perceived  ugliness. It takes a lot of courage, a lot of patience and a lot of generosity of spirit, all of which Grace Harris has in abundance.
You just needed faith the size of mustard seed that no matter what, things would work out. 
Schooled to be a perfect  lady, Programmed to behave like a Stepford wife, as she and her sister Judy have to hide their ambitions, thoughts, emotions and opinions to themselves and trim their personalities to fit into the “Pastor’s Family”  expected framework. 
Jackson and his dad are town monsters. Beasts to be feared and avoided at all costs and ridiculed whenever.  They’re ostracized by day but solicited at night by horny women looking to be fixed
The women of that town had no problem hating me when the sun shone while moaning my name when the shadows of the night fell. I was the secret escape from their fake realities. Some kind of challenge for their well-behaved Southern souls. 

description

I cant, won’t give the story away, but I’ll say this.It just surprises you at every turn every chapter the story develops and reveals truths. Ugly truths about small townspeople mentalities and it’s prejudices
On the other hand there’s beautiful truths about kindred spirits finding solace together, healing their wounded hearts together
“when you zoom in, when you truly look at the person beside you, you’ll see many of the same things. Hope. Love. Fear. Anger. Once you zoom in, you realize we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red, and even monster’s hearts can break. Just gotta remember to always zoom in.”
To always zoom in…
 

description

This book is not JUST  a story, its a pious sermon, reminding us to open our hearts always. Let the fresh air of acceptance and love come in, swirl around, drive away demons of prejudices, stink of bias and mould of judgements out of our hearts. 
“If you turn your back on one, then you turn back on all and THAT is the ultimate sin- to disgrace God’s people.
It’s poetry in motion, changing mood from poignant to angry to lusty to passionate to angsty to frustration and eventually acceptance. The story flowed so smoothly and flawlessly I didn’t even find time to put it down. Engrossing completely, I was totally submerged. Pick up this book when it releases and just enjoy the beautiful journey !

5 LA to Miami Stars!!!

I have enjoyed all the books so far on the Men of “The Agency” but Max’s story in Contracted is by far my most favorite! Written flawlessly and flowed perfectly, I was unable to put this book down once I started. 

Max is a workaholic always on the go, meetings, dinners, concerts, you name it. But that is what has made him who he is. Willing to work 16 plus hours a day, 7 days a week has granted him the lifestyle that he has worked so hard to get. 

Eve is just like Max, being a stylist to so many LA customers, she has built the business from ground up and is constantly on the run from client to client. Her business is the world to Eve. 

Two years into a relationship together, with Max based out of Miami and Eve in LA, how much longer can these two continue to meet up on the whim. Count on a free 20 minutes to catch a quickie together? Its hard for anyone to do a long distant relationship. Now toss in two job obsessed individuals. Set up for a disaster or set up for the long run?

This book had all the feels!!! Not to mention a great present from Eve to Max in the first part of the book –insert warning to wear sham-wow panties during this part—had me squirming in my chair!!! Absolutely loved how headstrong both Eve and Max were. Eve didn’t back down from her ‘More’ plea and Max stood behind her in what she chose. 

Great Job Marni!!! This book was awesome!!!

This is the BEST book of the series. We’ve had Brett & James story , Jack & Samantha story, so Max & Eve story was next step and it’s a giant leap from first book, In terms of heat, angst, tears & Passion. Max Graham is self confessed workaholic. An ambitious agent on the rise & rise and he works his tight ass off, for it. Eve Kennedy is his counterpart & match in ambition, zeal, passion and sexuality. She’s an equal partner throughout their relationship. Choosing to remain in-the-moment, no strings attached, no future planning, no tantrums, no monogamy. It’s a match made in heaven where hungry bodies need to be fed & replenised, hearts are kept aside.
“We’re talking about Max Graham. That man doesn’t compromise. He’s as ruthless in business as he is in the bedroom and everyday life. It’s his way. Always. And there are no exceptions.” 

description

That becomes a problem because Eve’s heart develops a crack and feelings seep in
They. Are. Doomed !.
She starts looking for MORE , could be James’s impending nuptials, or her ticking biological clock or the fact that Max has consumed her senses all around.
I want to wake up next to you every morning . I want to eat breakfast with you when we get home from the gym. I want to jump in the shower with you as you’re getting ready for work. I want to see your face over candlelight. I want your lips to be the last thing I kiss before I close my eyes. 

description

Now the story is at an impasse and Marni skillfully negotiates around the minefield of emotions, carrying wounded hearts and career mirages. Skirting around personal ambitions and golden futures, they are charging at windmills it seems. Marni is a master at writing smouldering sex scenes, very detailed yet fresh, she keeps the readers spellbound and this book is no different. I was moist in my eyes and otherwise😜 it touched my heart and my soul at multiple places.
Eve, You deserved more.
I know that.
I wish I’d given it to you.
I wish you’d let me give it to you now. —Max
 

description

Im guessing Scarlett still hasn’t met her match or else her book would be out too
#WriteMarniWrite, we need scarlett’s story and probably Shawn’s story next. Come to think of it, could be just one book **hint..hint** marni!😉
Amazing story, I read it in one go!

Yes, we were the O’Shea Brothers.
Irish blood.
Vengeful souls.
Killer hearts.

The primitive living in the middle of nowhere, the hard work builds up a lot of energy which they find releasing in oomph-worthy screaming, steaming sexdescription

Monet is an informal bride to be shared by all and an unwilling hostage becomes a willing participant as her inner sexual diva is unleashed.
The brothers – Cal, Rogan, Derrick, Nolan are all men of the soil, yet mafia in their blood. They treat Monet callously as a fuck-toy which soon balances to an equal partner
The story was good, scenes were scorching and steaming.

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Reviews]: FAMILY TIES by Stephie Walls

 

 

 

 
Title: Family Ties
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2018
 
 
 
Blurb
 
With a
history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into
something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and
neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our
twisted family tree.
 
I wasn’t
her brother.
They
weren’t my parents.
Not that it
mattered…
 
She was off
limits.
 
Portia was
my friend.
Then my
foster sister.
And she’d
always be the love of my life.

4 Lemon Pie Stars

I absolutely love the way Stephie Walls can draw you into a book just by the blurb. This book is exactly what the blurb states…

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was placed with her foster family after she lost her mother from drugs. She was adopted by the loving couple who raised her since that day. 

Jude was a in and out foster child. With no other family, he was placed in the home when his mother’s illness spiked. 

Years have gone by; Jude and Portia were the children that Hensley and Ernie could never have. Family vacations, school functions, family dinners…they raised Jude and Portia like they were their own children. 

When feelings get to be too much for these two to hide, is it truly wrong that they want to be together? Even though everyone sees them as brother and sister?

It’s a battle of right and wrong in their minds. Right because it feels so good when they are together. Wrong because they’ve been raised as brother and sister. 

It’s a tug of war, back and forth, should we or should we not. Reasons vs. Doubt. Which side will win? At what cost to the people who have raised you as their own.

The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants 
Let me start by saying that love follows no boundries, no age, no relations. It’s wonder when Portia and Jude, foster kids in Shaw home, just stumble & fall in love. It’s messy, conflicting, tearing, slaying love
This was the Portia I’d loved as a kid, through the various awkward stages of puberty, and now into adulthood—although each with a different passion. 

description

Hearts oscillate between should we/shouldn’t we constantly, which became annoying but I tota Lily get it. Social restrictions ,Tabboo relationship, which is technically not forbidden, but they are young kids. Moral compass is going haywire, physical reactions belie sensible morals.
I wasn’t her brother
They weren’t my parents
Not that it mattered……
She’s off limits
 

At times, maybe few only, Portia seemed self absorbed and childish. Jude was angry and frothing with jealousy more than she was.  But at least he read smut. #GoJude!!
Pick up this slow burn story and watch your heart twist & hurt

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Review] – Everything I Never Wanted by K. Street

 

 

 
Title: Everything I Never Wanted
Author: K. Street
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2018
 
Blurb
 
A single
dad, contemporary romance standalone.
 
This wasn’t
supposed to be my life.
 
One phone
call was all it took to bring me back to the small town I had grown up in.
Everything had changed, and staying away was no longer an option.
 
Four and a
half years later, I was a widowed single father still here, still trying to
pick up the pieces. We were doing just fine on our own, my little girl and me.
 
At least,
we were until Camryn Parker stumbled into our lives. The woman was like a
tornado after a hurricane; she was the storm I never saw approaching. Behind
her beauty and sarcastic wit, she was just as broken as I pretended not to be.
As hard as I tried to resist, it was impossible not to fall in love with her.
 
In the end,
it took nearly losing it all for me to realize everything I never wanted was
exactly what I needed.

5 Doodlebug Stars

Give me a hot single parent dad who is totally an all-around great guy and I am in!!!

Tucker is surviving…barely.
It’s been 4 years…
He can’t move on…
He hasn’t grieved any…
Not for any of them.

But the little girl, his ‘doodlebug’ is everything. It’s not been easy… 

Camryn is ready to start the new chapter in her life. Moving to a new town, starting a new job, this is how the chapter starts. She would have never thought that ‘Lucille’ would end up being sick. What a way to meet the first person in town! 

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. Of course Laura being in the story helped tremendously because as a mother, that is how I would treat my son too ❤ 

If you are looking for a great single dad romance book, pick this one up! The story was quick paced and flowed great. Plus, who doesn’t love a great ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ sing along. 

 

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Reviews] WICKED GENTLEMAN BY Christy Pastore

Release Date: June 21, 2018

Cover Design: Hart & Bailey Design Co.

 

Synopsis

 

Stevie

My Fairy Godmother had a wicked sense of humor, of that I was certain.

The first time I met Jackson Hart, I was on all fours with my ass in the air.

At the time of our meet not so cute, I didn’t know that the handsome man with the most captivating blue eyes was the wealthy, charismatic, and hot as sin hotelier, oh and my new boss.

Well, technically he is my boss’s boss. Just skimming the company manual was maybe not the best idea.

But, I digress. Working at Hart Hotels & Spa was a temporary plan.

Now, that plan has changed. Jackson Hart not only wanted me in his bed and in his life, he wanted me working alongside him.

Some offers are too good to pass up.

Jackson

Premium scotch aged to perfection, making money before sunrise, nine holes of golf and interesting conversation. Those are the things most known about me. Toss in a leggy brunette or a stunning redhead at a society event for good measure and there’s a story to amuse the public. But, my story goes deeper—to the past that I left behind.

Sooner or later past and present collide. I never dreamed Stevie Brockman would be part of both.

5 Hart Stars

One thing you can count on with a Christy Pastore book, is good solid writing. Books that flow great and have just enough laugh out loud banter between the characters that it eases you into the romance that is slowly building.

This is a great story of Stevie who has just started a job with Hart Hotels as a caddy on the golf course. Although its not the job she should be doing, it is what was available at the time. 

Being forced out of Miami, Jax has spent the past 3 years rebuilding his name. Hart Hotels is making it big now. Expansion after expansion is in the works. 

When the young lady in the hotel parking lot with car trouble catches his eye, there is no turning back. 

Jax and Stevie are meant for each other! These two are from totally different ends of the spectrum but manage to understand each other completely. Its not a smooth sailing for these two to be together, but is any relationship? 

I need to seriously have a heart to heart with Stevie and see if she would allow me to go on a weekend jaunt with Jax on his yacht! 

Great job, Christy!!!

Whew…Phew…wowza!
God’s answer to women Jackson James Hart. Hotel Magnate Extraordinaire has been created and let loose in Booklandia.

description

He’s talented, to say the least. When he meets Stevie on all fours, ass in the air, he’s…….helpful😆 Good Samaritan that he is, he helps her, drops her, pays for her repairs, then takes her to dinner. Then he turns her life around
Orgasms before I was introduced to his experienced tongue and magic fingers were like riding a bike with training wheels. This was full-blown, look ma no hands and then soaring off into the sunset. 

description

He’s singlehandedly focused on Stevie Determined.
Intense.
Focused— on me.
 

Who wouldn’t fall in love with this mouthwatering Hart Resorts Owner, rich, successful and loving hunk of a man. I did. Hook, line & sinker. You will too.
Go grab this delectable, sexy story and enjoy!
I loved the characters, but Stevie , baby, what’s wrong with your taste buds hun..
What’s wrong with pineapple..its HAWAIIN PIZZA for chrissakes!!!*smh**
“Okay, but I get to choose the toppings. Can’t trust you and your sweet tooth, you’re liable to put pineapples or banana peppers on the pizza.” 
So that tiny bit peeve notwithstanding, she’s sweet, talented, forgiving and very loving.

This book can only be read after reading Even Money (All in Duet #1).

After the cliffy from Even Money, I wanted to toss my kindle! Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait too long to get the conclusion. Picking up right where we left off, let the fun begin!!

I had no idea how this book would pan out. With the evil father, the possibilities were endless.

However, I felt the story after the first major event was pretty predictable. I figured it out and sailed right through reading without any surprises.

We are left with a pretty open book. An ending, yes… But one that could possibly bring us more sometime down the road.

One character that stood out to me was Laurent. Would enjoy reading more about his background and where he is now. His sister though, she scared me! LOL.

All in all, the duet was a good read.

 

621b5-20180226_0703002017-01-16-15-15-40--885908646

 

Alessandra is a master at writing engrossing romantic suspense and here too in the conclusion of the Duet, she mesmerizes you with a riveting read. The book has all the ingredients to make a fine erotic dish with splashes of intrigue, hot boiling sex, sizzling passion and heart tugging sweet emotions. Throw in some murders and voila…you have a perfectly embellished book.

description

It starts where EVEN MONEY left off, on a cliffy. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how Dario will be able to explain what he said in the end. But Alessandra turns the story on a dime and the trajectory this part of the story takes, just throws everything up in the air. The odds stack against Dario & Bell, yet they dig in their heels and persist, hold hands and hold out, I believe that’s what the title means.
I just loved reading Robert Hawk going through a gamut of emotions. Sarcasm to smugness to shock to anger to rage to denial to disbelief and then fury. Just desserts and all !!
He’s such a powerful man rendered helpless
A close friend of the governor and a major contributor to his re-election fund. Hell, Hawk had sponsored the police department’s Christmas dinner this year, in addition to his generous annual scholarship program for law enforcement children.

description

This book also brings to light the depth of Dario and Bell’s relationship. What started as intense attraction morphs into true love and as is with all true loves their bonds are tested continuously. They’ve everything thrown at them. There’s cops, there’s FBI, there’s Robert, there’s their families, their friends, and a person out to kill them. All this and they find time to have scorching hot sex !😆
A page turner no doubt and improbable, fast paced read. Once you start you won’t be able to walk away till you hit THE END.
