What a great Contemporary Romance book this was!!! This is my second book by Christy Pastore and each one I read gets better and better.

Who doesn’t love a great Hollywood story? One that is filled with paparazzi, rumors, social media, break-ups, one night stands, etc!! Isn’t this the way the ball rolls in Hollywood?

Grady has it all going for him in life. Just wrapped up on filming and comes home to celebrate with his wife… Only his wife has started celebrating a wee bit earlier than she should have.

While the burner is set to medium heat, the relationship forms. No need to rush a good thing, right? Learn all there is about each other and open up when you are ready to. That’s the perfect setting for a great relationship.

But when feelings form and the truth comes out. Will one make a sacrifice to not have what they truly want in a relationship? Or is it time to let it go and become the one who is in a relationship with no paperwork to tie the two together…

Just like a perfect pineapple, this story drew me in at the beginning and kept me going till the end. Great job Christy on another fantastic book!!!

Sipping on whiskey, smoking cigars, and conducting multi-million dollar deals in our own personal playground of indulgence, there isn’t anything I can’t have… and that includes HER. I can also have HER if I want.

And I want.

After reading a shortened version of this story in the Royally Mine Anthology, I was so glad to hear that Alta Hensley would be giving us more. This is the first book of getting more and what a hot book it was!!


Spiked Roses is a member only men’s club. A place for rich men to go to where they can have anything and everything. The word NO does not exist. After Spiked Roses has had a bad run on law suits, things must change.


Contracts are the first up for change. Each and every member must sign a contract if they wish to purchase a lady. Not that they will ever stand up in a lawsuit, they are there just to prove that the contract is between two consenting adults.


The sexy scenes that Alta has brought to us in this book is what I’ve come to appreciate in Alta’s writing. She constantly comes up with scenes that push everyone’s limits. With those limits, we all are screaming the safe word in our head…. but the characters in the book, they go with the flow.


Great job Alta!!! I Can’t wait to read Villains & Vodka and Scoundrels & Scotch.










A pleasure club owned by billionaires -Kenneth Saxon, Harley Crow, Victor Drayton, Mathew Price , Lennon Wolf & Prince Roman Cassian



“We owned Spiked Roses—an exclusive, membership only establishment in New Orleans.Sipping on top shelf booze, smoking exotic cigars, and conducting multi-million dollar deals in our own personal playground of indulgence, there wasn’t anything we couldn’t have ! “


There’s debauchery and sexual fetishes coming to life . Kinks are as easily accepted as Rare old whiskey . The girls are in for the money, the guys are in for dark rough , no holds barred sex.


“You were all nothing but a room full of bastards and whiskey.”

“But at the same time, we were nothing but a room full of harlots and diamonds. So who’s to judge?”



The men and women are in contractual sex relationships. Each person aware of exactly what goes on in the Humidifier Room, Cigar Room & Tasting Room . It’s spelled out clearly , precisely , well in advance

In this meleè comes a naive Anita . She lives a drab life in an abandoned trailer in the middle of nowhere . 

“Muckaluk .A mile marker in Humboldt County near Coal Canyon. This was my home. This was my hell. Dust devils and sagebrush.”


Her life a colorless canvas and boring tumbleweed infested. In the smack middle of rest landscape , she’s as colorless and joyless as the arid wasteland . Looking for the elusive Rattlesnake to bite her to feel herself alive, besides looking after her old neighbour Virgie. She pushes Anita to go to New Orleans to change her life. Just live for once. Fly , even if she crashes later.

That’s how Anita ends up sitting in front of Kenneth. Her life takes some really dramatic turns and she has to run…far far away. But Kenneth is nothing but persistent. Worried about the scarred reputation of his club -Spiked Rose , he has the unenviable task to locate Anita and lasso her ass back to the club.

What follows is a series of tides that pull and push these hearts and souls together and apart.

It’s an interesting story taht started out really well, written well and oozing sexiness.

Somewhere in the middle , it sagged a bit, but picks up later.

Just my take, for a man in control and Dominant attitude, Kenneth unravelled pretty quickly and did a turnabout .

Good sex with some kinks thrown in .

As soon as I finished this book, I thought to myself… Why the Heck have I not read any other books by this fantastic author? This book was written wonderfully, drew me in and had me reading the words that are so beautifully expressed without stopping! 

I will admit, the title of this book had me weary of starting it. To me it sounds like a cheesy reality program. That is so far from the truth!!! What we have here is a book that is about two people who have done bad things. It’s a story that is told with such honesty that you find yourself second guessing whether or not what you are reading is a true story or a fictional book. 

The highs of being alone on an island seeking redemption to the lows of being alone and trying to figure out if you will truly ever find redemption. To wanting to believe you are making progress in becoming a better person…to believing others when they tell you it’s just a dream. 

Redemption Island is a must read!!! Great job to L.B. Dunbar for this fantastic story!!! Now, bring on Book 2 in this duet!!! I will be patiently waiting for it’s release!






Wow!! What a story !. It’s a journey of self discovery, removal of distractions to hear your soul. Ethereally visceral, contemplative and spiritual to an extent 

It doesn’t hit you hard like a sudden storm, yet it builds in strength. The cadence as gentle  as soft swells of the sea, it starts by skimming on the surface of blue sea like dolphins , but  soon , its the only thing you can see. Endless expanse .


An unfortunate and horrible crime has been committed. Yet the victim and the perpetrator  find themselves together on the Redemption Island. 

The mission- 

“Experiment, she thought. She allowed herself to be part of the scientific process, and she felt played when she swore she’d never be taken advantage of again.

Repent. The word drifted through her head. Without him, she wouldn’t have been on this island. Without him, she wouldn’t have found herself again. She offered forgiveness in exchange for love.

He took what he intended before they knew one another and then she give it to him willingly. Because he asked. He wanted permission and she agreed—love him and be free. 

You make me wild, he said, when all she wanted was to be cared for, cared about. She wanted to be claimed. “

Restore the liaison had said, but she’d never felt so broken.




For both of them, cause Terrence Jackson Corbin IV & Juliet Montmore are both somehow are criminals in a way. One didn’t speak out, one didn’t speak enough. They are both completely broken,  mistrusting and reticent. Very unlikely neighbours and dangerous in personalities, but stranger things have happened. They find each other and themselves to try and get past the horrific ordeal  and the stigma attached.

But man proposes and God disposes. Unfortunate nature of events tear their lives apart. Once again they drift away from each other. Very, very far……


Tbh, when I started reading it, though the words spellbound me, I was hesitant, thinking it’s another cookie cutter romance.

Boy ! Was I wrong. The story has a gentle pace but it’s seeps into your soul, like a chill or warmth. Right through to your bones . The background of the mishap isn’t very clear , but the focus is mostly on now and here . How they share nights, days, food, companionship, and ultimately trust. The human heart learns to apologise and forgive despite its logic and morality. 

I particularly loved how Garvey says – Dance. “You need to become one with nature. Pick an animal. Reenact its behavior and reflect on what you can learn from it.”

Though Tack dismisses at first, he subconsciously find his “Mouse ” and he learns to dance like her, with her,  and in turn finds himself. His new role of protector and nurturer. It surprises him as much it does Juliet. He’s her rediscovered Romeo, in the sense that he woos her, stands under her balcony(treehouse) and she bestows him with her rarest smile, trust and her heart.

I’m amazed at the writers ability to write such an unusual story with such finesse , such tenderness.

They help each other in getting in touch with their innate goodness and inner humility


“I can be a bad man when I go into business mode. I tend to dominate until I get what I want. I want what I want, and that means taking companies, making them mine, and stripping them of what I need. My father always believed in survival of the fittest.

“Have you ever considered doing something different? Building something up instead of tearing those companies down? Making something that’s for the good of others?”


Most amazing transformation of characters, right in front of your eyes.

I loved the feels that gush forth. The right word would be engulfing! The story engulfs you like a mist on the ocean and you shall find strength of the human spirit here, yet reminds you of basic life lessons- If you commit a crime, you must make things whole again. If you killed a dog, you might need to adopt a puppy or work at an animal shelter.

Its the foundation of survival and decency.

My first by her, but certainly not the last.


[New Release, Giveaway & Reviews] Pitch Dark by AM Wilson and Alex Grayson


Title: Pitch Dark

Author: A.M. Wilson and Alex Grayson

Genre: Dark Romance

Cover Designer: Covers by Combs

Release Date: September 15, 2017




One girl disappeared. After fifteen years, her cold lifeless body was found on the damp forest floor. Not an inch of her was unmarked by the horrors she endured. Alone, malnourished, abused in horrific ways; this was how she died.

One girl was found walking the streets, covered in dirt and scars. She had no memory of who she was, where she came from, or what happened to her. Even though the marks on her body attested to years of heinous abuse, her strength shone through at every turn.


Revenge and justice were sworn.


Years of searching brought up nothing but dead ends. Detective Niko James was too late to save his childhood friend, but he vows not to let down another. 


The clock is ticking and the trail is pitch dark.








This chilling story sent shivers down my spine. I could not stop reading. Powerful characters that will stay with me for a long time. A must read! ~Alta Hensley, USA Today Bestselling Author

My heart was ripped out while reading Pitch Dark. I couldn’t believe the immediate darkness and extreme grit that came with the very beginning of this novel. I’m talking some Stephen King type shit! ~ Alecia, The Staircase Reader

A riveting story and I think this in reality could be one hell of a twisted movie. ~ Melissa, Book Addicts Reviews

I was blown away by the characters and how well written this is. This is much more than I originally thought it was going to be. This is now currently my top favorite book of all time not just for 2017. ~ Amanda, Goodreads Reviewer

This book brings to life a monster that just very well could be lurking in your neighborhood and that is down right terrifying to think about. ~ Misty, Goodreads Reviewer

Well my goodness!!! Popping a double cherry with this book. Two New to Me authors and what a book to pop my cherry with. A page turner from the very first page till the last. Sat down yesterday and started this one, pulled me in immediately…didn’t stop till I finished late last night. 

This is a different story, one that is full of emotion. One for the young boy who lost his best friend. Now a Detective, 15 years have passed and he is still looking for his best friend. Refusing to give up, his life has revolved solely around finding the girl who just disappeared. 

From the highs of possibly getting a break in the case, to the lows of just another dead end on the lead, this story tells a fantastic tale of what a person goes through when a loved one goes missing. Never give up hope and continue to live each day searching. 

The star that shines the brightest is the North Star. If you keep looking, hopefully one day your path will be paved in the direction the brightest star is shining!!! 






A riveting tale of criminal intents and lost loves, that will stick to your heart and keep you burning midnight oil to finish the book .
The worst kind of tragedy in this world is a child being kidnapped . Their disappearance is horrific for both the child and the parent and their loved ones. There are so many monsters , predators lurking in the shadows , waiting for the opportune moment to grab them for their nefarious deeds
I shudder so hard at that prospect for any kid. The story sends shivers down your spine. The chilling sequence of events that lead to Aislin’s dissappearnace is the start of inhumane torture, abuse and sexual assault on the poor girl and frustrating for her best buddy and next door neighbour – Niko James. He not only loses his best friend but his “North Star”. 
The story covers a span of 15 years . Of heartbreak, frustration and rage. He grows up to be a cop and runs around blind corners, knocking on dead ends, stumbling over false leads. 
It’s agonising to watch him helpless & angry . 
“She was the one who kept the small spark of light shining off in the distance. Without her, that light will disappear for good. I may have family and friends who care for me, but I’ll still be alone because she won’t there anymore.I’m not ready to let it go yet . I’m not sure if I ever will. I know it’s an unhealthy obsession to keep something that’s connected to a dead girl, but Aislin was so much more than just a girl.”
The story is dark , no doubt, but not pitch dark ( that’s just my opinion) cause I have read some darker , reads. But the twists, turns, surprises in the story will keep you glued to this book.
The story is very well written, the plot thickens and builds in tension as it goes. It’s very well researched project, definitely. Small details are sprinkled throughout the story to give authenticity. The pace is quite fast , despite the time span. You feel as if the perpetrator is just beyond the reach of your fingertips, and it makes the journey heart pounding and grossly captivating. 
The feels are very strong. Characters are so endearing and likeable. It’s not rushed and Doe takes baby steps to build trust and relation. Her fear is very real and palpable. Niko is very alpha protector , he exudes strength and safety. The poignant rediscovery of life by both Niko and Doe brought tears to my eyes. It’s so thoughtfully worded , I loved the blossoming relationship. And Betsy is just adorable
I wish gruesome and strictest punishment and death sentence for such heinous crimes.
Couple of things that seemed odd to me , so I’m taking away half a star just for that.

Masters Redemption - About Book

Her Master's Redemption cover

I was a Master.

To understand me, you must understand my past.

My father was a Master. My mother his Courtesan.

I was raised in a business that trained women to become whores for the men that owned them. I was taught to train with a strict hand…but to seduce with a kind heart.

Although my mother was one of those golden whores, the women broken and rebuilt to become everything their owner could desire, my mother – in her wisdom and beauty – trapped the heart of her Master.

Through her perseverance, she never let the man go.

Naturally, I followed in his footsteps, not once finding love, but almost gaining a son.

My heart was destroyed on a clear summer day when my child was stripped from my hands. Redemption for my crimes was lost, and loneliness like a man should never know was gained.

Until I found Seraphina…

She thought she could deny me. She thought she could choose her fate or determine the course her life would run. She thought she would never love another because she couldn’t love herself.

With a shattered heart and rebellious mind, she believed her life was broken. She chose death as an avenue to escape the life she was given, and she believed there was nobody who could stand in her way.

As her Master, it was my duty to show her…

…that all her beliefs were wrong.

We waited and waited for another book in the Her Master’s Series…The wait was certainly worth the wait. This is book 3 in the series but can still be read as a standalone if you have not read the previous books.

In this book we meet Seraphina (Sera) a broken, lost, at her wits end and ready to throw away everything young lady. Trained as a courtesan, sold and abused, she has finally escaped and trying to survive.

Aiden is trying to survive in his world that has been turned upside down in the worst imaginable way!

Together Aiden and Sera will save each other if Master Anthony doesn’t enforce the ‘rules’ of the Society.

What a ride!







Master Aiden has always been the most intriguing and mesmerizing of all the villains I’ve read…….ever!. The MoFo has the cruelest streak and hardest hand when training courtesan. 

Though the book has Seraphina & Anthony at the centre of all turmoil, This story has Aiden’s shadow all over. He is still in charge, holding the whip and Sera’s heart. 


“He cast you aside after forcing you to love him. He handed you to the wolves, beautiful girl. He didn’t care whether you lived or died. But he can still have you. No matter how much you hate him, he can still do to your body what he does to hers. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.”


Sera is jumping over the cliff..literally and her life has been nothing but surviving in a pit full of ghosts of her past. She’s had enough . So she finds a nearest cliff to say goodbye to the cruel world but as fate would have it , Anthony saves her.

Sera actually dies on the bridge, a new sera takes her place . Finders keepers as they say .Her life , graciously saved by Anthony, now belongs to him. To break her and rebuild her again. But you can’t break the already broken, you can’t scare a woman who has nothing left to lose, no will to live. She craves pain, wants torture, begs for death.

An uphill task ahead for both masters indeed. Here’s where The astuteness of being a True Master comes into being. 

Aiden takes over ( Yessss!!)


“A Master does his job by knowing his slave better than the slave knows themself. We read what a person is saying through non-verbal cues. We know when they’ve been pushed too far, and we know when they need to be pushed farther.”


The story in part is really amazing, the parts where Aiden steps in , that is. Anthony is all heart and soft emotions. Sera is broken and struggling, only Aiden has the ability to foresee everything and set it right.

The most amazing parts were how Aiden walks her through her torture , in order to heal her. He can sense which parts of her life haunt her, give her nightmares and since poison kills poison, he walks her through them, in turn purging her demons.


“What will it be, Seraphina? Do you fight for your life or give in?”


So Bravo for that Ms white !!

Some places I felt that the scenes was left undescribed. The real dark themes that lily is famous for were more fade to black. The theme was very intense, mood of the story ominous . Yet somewhere it just left me hungry for more.

She’s still the True Black Blood Queen of The Dark , no doubt , the book is excellent, just not my favorite of the series. 

The END!! .. Master Aiden actually admits something!* gasp*

I’m gonna have to buy skates , cause the Hell has frozen over !!!

[New Release & Review] Three Is A War ( Tangled Lies #3) by Pam Godwin

The conclusion of the Tangled Lies series is now available!

Three is a War (Book 3)

Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads

Three means war.
Three sides vying for forever.

My first love.
The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.

My second chance.
Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.

The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight.
I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering.
What options do I have left?

I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

One is a Promise (Book 1)

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads | Teasers

One promise.
One forever.

One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness.
When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me.
A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.

Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.

Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t.
At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves.
He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.

Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.

Promises resurface.
Lies entangle.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.

I love two men, and I can only have one.

Two is a Lie (Book 2)

Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads

Two lies.
Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.
And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.

The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.
Fighting and fucking.
Resisting and submitting.

Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.

I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.

Note: This is book 3 in a series. You Must read the first 2 books before reading this one.

Well my goodness!! If there was ever an ending to a series that I made a paper chain to tear off a circle till the day it came out, this is the book!! After reading the first two books in this series, I’ve fallen in love myself with all 3 characters.

I dance in the mourning for the hurt I inflicted on him. I dance in longing for the love I share with him. I dance in fear for the words that will rip him away.

This book, This series is so well written that you can not help but fall in love and feel the emotions, the pain, the heartache. How can anyone have to face truly loving 2 men with their whole heart and have to pick one to go, one to be with forever?

But the heart isn’t logical. Sometimes, we don’t know what we want until it’s gone.

I cried, not gonna lie! From feeling the emotions that Danni, Trace and Cole were going through. Even if Danni offers up a ‘logical’ solution…the three of them remain together. That solution was shot down quicker than sinking in quick sand by both Trace and Cole.

If you know, we’ll all know.

6 Months…She has 6 Months to make the decision. Will it be the one she loves truly with all her heart or the one she loves with her heart? Pam Godwin has put us through the wash machine on heavy duty load with an extra spin cycle. Fantastic Ending to a Beautiful Story!!!





An epic ending to the Tempestous Tale Of Love.

The story will increase your heart rate and throb your senses . It’s a catastrophic solution no matter which way Pam spins it , you can’t look away and you can’t watch !

 Three beautiful  people , brought together by Destiny , yet together would crowd a bed. 

Pam etches these unforgettable characters -Trace , Danii And Cole . Their world becomes yours, their dilemmas frustrate your brain, their pangs of love warm your heart and then their broken, divided love pulls your soul in different directions.

At the end of book 2 , Danii has blacked out . I almost wish she’d stayed that way.

Who did it ….why …. how ? All those questions get answered , but there are bigger problems at stake here  . The more they try to make sense the more they get senseless. The more they try to escape, the more they are slammed back together in the complex relationship. The more they try to wiggle out of picking a side , the more their heart is divided.




I was as conflicted as Danii, going out of my mind with craziness and couldn’t pick , since both Trace & Cole are true loves of her life, two parts of her Soul and two rhythms that her heart beats to. She and I could sway towards Dimpled charm and smirking sexiness of Cole one moment, then naturally submit to Trace and his powerful & magnetic commands. 

They both hold Danii and me captive with their steamy kisses and sexy spells.

I moved and danced with Danii , my heart was right there with her going mad with passion and eavesdropping and trying to make sense of her

She’s in a Dreamlike scenario of being worshipped by two handsome men and yet that’s her bane, she’s being pulled in two different directions and it’s tearing her apart!.




I fell in love with two men and lost myself. I’ll stay in love with one and find myself again.




Easier said than done though . 

Pam won’t let you off so easy, would she !. 


I wish I was Danii, beautiful and sensuous, she holds two perfect hearts in her hand. It looks like a dream scenario from the outside. Two powerful men,  on their knees , vying for her love . What makes her so worthy of this uphill task ?


“I’m afraid one day you’ll realize I wasn’t worth it.”

“I’m afraid one day you’ll ask me to leave”


Cole is a handsome rogue who drove on a bike, straight through Danii’s heart 5 years ago . I fell in love with Cole in book one and dammit when he flashes those holes in his cheeks my heart just sinks in them. He’s a flirtatious, handsome chap and I swooned when he smiled.

Danii too trips on his dimples and is trapped in his soulful gaze. Their passion is sky high . Her First Love, her First Soulmate. They share a chemistry, body trampling, soul igniting fire that envelops them as soon as they are in  proximity . 

Danii cannot resist him so they should be a logical choice , isnt it? (YES)

Because a woman can never forget her first love ever !! Right?(YES)



He’s not the first man I loved or the first love I lost. But his is the love that cuts the deepest and does the most damage.


And then Pam focuses on the other angle of this triangle.  She writes Trace with such magnificent Demeanour, Danii kneel naturally for him . Their bodies slot and hearts sync perfectly. so that love should be perfect. He commands and demands from her, gives her life back and breathes love into her emaciated soul when she’s grieving for Cole. She derives purpose of life from him. 

That should be a natural choice wouldn’t it ? Because where Cole takes from her, Trace gives back to Danii – Her smile, her sway, her belief in love and happiness in life back.!

He’ll I’m in Love with Trace by this point. 


“You look at me and see one of two choices. I look at you and see absoluteness.


Omg swooooooooooooooooonThump !!!!

I couldn’t take it any more, I begged Pam to end the readers and characters’ misery. Pick someone who I thought would be great together, but she has no control over these powerfully adamant people. (They seem so real that I refer to them as people not characters anymore.) They do what they do under the given restrictive environment would do

My heart thundered throughout the story. I changed my mind a couple Of times, so i could totally understand the brutal truth that Danii had to face. Both men ignited my body and soul, raging fires of passion threaten to swallow them and me whole. They are thirsty for quenching kisses, hungry for ravenous sex. And believe me the sex is hawt, in every position, in every scene. Some of the best by Pam. 

But THE END !!!!!!!! ….i cried bucket loads. The one left behind gets his heart trampled and how could you watch that.

Knee trembling passion, soul stirring Love and heart wringing angst. This story has it all…..and then some !

Pam is truely a Goddess of creating stories that imprint on your heart and you’ll think about it for days .

Title: Muscle Memory
Author: Stylo Fantôme
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 28, 2017
Her lips, the way she feels, how she moves against me. Her
voice when she laughs, her eyes when she cries. Her soul connected to mine, for
better or for worse, for all eternity.

I don’t remember.

A blank face. Unrecognizable. The darkness and impenetrable fog, day after day
after day. Who am I? And for that matter, who is she?

I can’t remember.

Two sides to the same coin – one wants to remember, and the other wants to stay
forgotten. Which side will win? Can he trust his heart to bring him back to
her? Or will she stay lost in the fog forever?

I might never remember.

Author Bio
Crazy woman
from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a
necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about
right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see
shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m
clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs
more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I
do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the
year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a
curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t
understand me.
Yeah. I
think that about sums me up.
Author Links
WOW WOW WOW!!!! Just finished this story and I am left with a feeling of what can I possibly read next to cure me from this hangover!! From the first chapter, till the last page…I read non stop… because this story pulls you in and leaves you wanting more, needing more, unable to take a break and come back for more!!! Muscle Memory is just that Fantastic!!!
Jayson and Del are two peas in a pod. They are like peanut butter and jelly. They go together, they fit together, they survive together. Blue means Love>>Pink means Happy
The rest of our lives. Sounds like the best time ever.
They get along perfectly…doesn’t matter if they are drunk, on drugs or just plain old sober…They get each other.
Not only is this book flawlessly written, it is chocked full of an emotional story that has you hanging onto hope till the very last page. So well written that you can not see the writing on the wall, you have to devour each and every page. Stylo Fantome is a very talented Author. It doesn’t matter what her storyline is, she captures her readers with the wonderful words she writes!!!
How can I i even start to make sense or describe this story . 
The blurb didnt say much , so i just went in blind. The Best decision ever ! Cause i was surprised and elated then heartbroken, then hopeful and then blissed at all the turns this story meanders through.
I’m just numb from crying so hard. My heart is aching like a pulled muscle . It’s full of all the feels in CAPS, they crawl all over your body and penetrate the soul. The heart trembles with emotions and when it runneth over, they will ultimately flow through your eyes. Be prepared to fly sky high , then shatter to the ground and then try to make sense of it all. I’m just so overwhelmed and so happy that I got to read this book early.
Next time I go to NYC I will be inadvertently scanning the crowds near Time Square, to maybe catch a glimpse of my favouritest couple!
“Muscle memory, – That you could feel in your skin and your bones and your muscles ,even when your brain couldn’t.”
Heart being the strongest muscle in your body, it seals the emotions in its tight fist. You may be apart from the person you love, you may forget what they said, you may sometimes forget the faces , but you never forget how they made you feel. And that is the foundation of this amazing story . Jayson Fairbanks and Delaney Carter are in love. Stupid, head over heels, too absorbed into each other to notice their penury, dismal surroundings and their sorry state of addiction…..in Love 
“We had nothing. Nothing at all, barely two pennies to rub together, but we were happy. That’s true love.
Sensuality, aggression, pleasure, passion, dirty, raw, naughty, nasty, love.”
Del is a Ray of sunshine breaking apart their dark shadowed life. Beautiful, full of Love and Joie De vivre
she had an exceptionally positive outlook on life. A spirit that was almost impossible to crush. Whenever anything bad happened, she could almost always find a silver lining. Find a way around it or through it, or a way to laugh at it and learn from it.
Pint size firebomb, she laughs as hard as she fights , or throws a tantrum. They’re infested with smooches, kisses , soul shattering sex and lust dipped Love . World is rosy , they’re high on Love , then joint, then speed. They Fly so high…………………………………………then Crash so bad, it kills them, their love, their life, their world, their existence.
I won’t give away anything else. Just that they cease to exist as Jayson and Delaney.
End of!
Stylo wrote neighbours and I became her fan. With MM I became her ardent , utmost, loyal admirer.
She spliced open my chest and stabbed my heart with all her words. I sobbed when I started the book, tore up when i was halfway through, howled to the sky when I finished it and a lump is stuck in my throat while writing this review.
A new string of adjectives will be needed to describe this beautiful story .
It’s the most heartfistingly achy-breaky story ever !! Drained of energy is how I feel now and reading common words seem sacrilegious after reading this tender , soulful story. 
You can say it will easily climb to the #1 spot of this year . It will scar and stamp upon your heart. 
I will never ever be able to forget Jayson and Del , they will stay trapped in my Muscle Memory FOREVER !!

[New Release & Review] HATE TO LOVE YOU by Tijan


Hate to Love You, an all-new standalone from New York Times Bestseller Tijan is LIVE!


Hate to Love You by Tijan

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: August 28th

Rule #1: No hot guys.

It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.

No one would know me at college.

Rule #2: No drama.

I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.

Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.



And all because of Shay Coleman.

Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .

. . . and he was about to break all my rules.
