5 Stars and then some!

This is not my first Giana Darling book so going into this story I new I was going to get all kinds of wonderful but Holy Moley—I never thought the emotions and feels would eat at me like this story does. Giana knocks it out of the park with this one!

Louise is a girl whose life has never been easy. For just 17 years old; it’s been hell. But there is one bright spot in her life—her Guardian Monster who saved her when she was seven. For nine years; the two of them exchange letters like they are pen pals but it’s so much more. Even her Guardian monster, Zeus, who is now the Prez of the nortorious MC club; knows this. He tries to shut it down because even he has a moral compass. He knows it’s wrong to fall for a girl 19 years younger than him.

But the heart wants what the heart wants and it’s never that simple for the both of them. What occurs later is beautiful and wonderful with a side of dirty and naughty and everything you’d expect from a MC read. My review can’t do this beauty of a book justice because Ms. Darling’s words transcends the pages into one of my favorite reads of 2018. Do yourself a favor; get this book. You can thank me later as you find yourself falling for Zeus and Lou as I’m positive you will!

Nancy’s Review The S.I.N. Rockstar Trilogy

PicsArt_06-06-10.19.46The S.I.N. Rockstar Trilogy
By: S.R. Watson and Shawn Dawson
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lourdes is the step sister of Xander a member of the rock band Sex in Numbers.  She spends the summer before starting college with him and the guys.  She knows that the guys are playboy.  But the attraction to Diesel is off the charts.  But she knows with her secret she can not go there.

Diesel has rules for a reason.  He is not going to let anyone close to him again.  The fear of rejection is just too much.  But when he sees Lourdes he sees something in her he can not resist.

When they finally give in the result is exquisite.  But there are so many hidden secrets that can destroy the beauty.

My take on this book:

It took me a while to get into the first book as it starts out kind of slow but then it just explodes.  The secrets will have you gasping out loud.  The second book actually made my heart hurt.  By the third book I wanted to throat punch a few people.  I read all three books within a day because I couldn’t put them down.  The writing draws out quite a bit of emotion both good and bad.  I definitely recommend these books.  They will not be the last that I read from this author.

Till the next book ~ Nancy

My take on this book:

I am not one that reads PNR but this book was so well written that it captured my attention quickly.  I could not put it down.  AJ made it to where even I could understand everything in the world of Hunters and Beasthounds enlightened and rouge.  I can not wait for the next book.  Highly recommend.

My take on this book:

If you have not read a Melissa Toopen book this is a good one to start with.  Her writing draws you in and will leave you wanting more.  You can feel the love between Hudson and Lennon throughout.  My heart hurt at the heartbreak they both go through.  Though there are some stray scenes in the book it does not overpower the emotion. This is a Do Not Miss book.

My One Regret
By: Claudia Burgoa
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kaden Hades fell hard and fast for Sadie.  They had plans to live happily ever after.  Until one day a almost tragedy hits.  And Kaden must make a choice.

Sadie doesn’t know what to do when Kaden makes his choice.  She understands but is heartbroken at the same time.  She had news to tell Kaden that day but never got the chance.

My take on this book:

This book will hit you right in the heart.  I felt every bit of regret from Kaden.  And every bit of anger from Sadie.  Add in Kadens ex and I wanted to jump through the kindle and smack her.  I have not read any of Mrs. Burgoas books before but I will be reading more.  Highly recommend.

Nancy’s Review of Top Switch Bottom

By: Chelle Bliss
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Alese is trying to fit in at the club but she has a very hard time trusting anyone enough to top her.

Ret has gotten bored with most submissives in the club.  They just aren’t doing anything for him anymore.

When a incident occurs Ret tries to comfort Alese.  From the conversation he decides to help Alese but as time goes he realizes that she just needs the right Dom.  He wants to be that man.

My take on this book:

This is a very quick and hot read.  The fireworks are there and the explosion is beyond hot between these two.  Once they realize they are meant to be.
If you want a fast read I definitely recommend this one.

Nancy’s Review of Carnage

Carnage
By: Lesley Jones
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Georgia meets Sean when she is 11 years old.  She is hanging upside down on the monkey bars.  As soon as she looked in his eyes she knew that he was the one she was supposed to be with for the rest of her life.

Sean knows when he sees Georgias knickers at 13 that they are a perfect match.  He is starting in her brothers band and quickly becomes part of the family.

When Sean and Georgia finally get together everything is right in their world.  Plans are being made.  Until one stupid mistake happens and both Georgia and Sean are beyond heartbroken.  Four long years and they are both still stuck.  Until one night by chance they run into each other and the fireworks are still there.  Can they make it work this time around.

My take on this book:
I was warned that this book was a tear jerker by a couple of author friends and I always love recommendations.  Although I did not need tissues it did rip my heart out.  Weather you are Team Sean or Team Cam you can not help but feel bad for the other one.  The ability that Mrs. Jones has in her writing will pull a lot out of you.  I had to read the rest of the books in the Carnage group just because I had to know more.  I highly recommend this book but be prepared for the book hangover.

Nancy’s Review of Redneck Romeo

Redneck Romeo
By: Xavier Neal
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dustin is on a vacation with his brother Cody and Sam Costs best friend.  This is where he meets Carly.  All he knows is that deep down there is a connection.

Carly is a matchmaker that knows that love at first sight is impossible.  But what in the world is it that she is feeling for this Cowboy?

Through the trials of distance, a city girl and a country boy, and each having very opinionated families how can this couple make it work?

My take on this book:

This book really hit me right in the heart.  Miss Neal has a way of looking at the world and putting that into her books that will make you question everything.  You can feel the Love between Dusty and Carly.  And though it is a rough road they will make it as long as they love each other.  I highly recommend this book.  Definitely do not miss.

Nancy’s Review of Stakeout

Stakeout
By: Karen Raines and Brittany Crowley
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Best friends are not supposed to cross that line to sleep with each other right?
When Bri and Colby do, Bri sees stars until Colby calls out another woman’s name. Not cool.  She decides to take a month long case to get away from Colby.  But then he shows up on the case.  How unlucky can a girl get?

Colby realizes the mistake he made the night with Bri.  But she won’t talk to him so he can get at least their friendship back.  When the chance for a joint case comes up he jumps at it because no way is he letting his best friend go without him watching her back.

What happens when both their lives are put on the line?

My take on this book:

I loved this book.  Not only was the tension thick.  But the danger was palpable.  The twists that these writers added had my mind spinning.  This was a awesome book that I did not want to put it down. I would love to see more from these two.  The guys from Colbys firm and ladies from Bris firm will make for some serious hotness.

Leigh’s review on God’s and Monsters

Gods and Monsters
By Saffron A. Kent
Since reading the Unrequited, I have longed for the words of Saffron Kent again. I loved Gods and Monsters in a real and raw way. Evie loved Abel for so long but her mother and the rest of the town thought of him as a monster but he was not—not in the least. This is a great example that bigotry doesn’t always follow race and the town has it in for Abel, because of his geneology. Evie falls for him though her mother, one of the real monsters in this story, makes it difficult for the two to be together.
 
The story follows Evie and Able from their early teens through their early adult years. The character development that Saffron creates within this story is unique and incredible. Early within the story, we see Evie as the kid she is but as the story progresses, so does Evie. This is just another one of Ms. Kent’s wonder in her story telling ability.
 
Evie is two years younger than Abel when she meets him. The whole town hates his existance. But as I mentioned earlier, they are the ones that are truly the monsters that create a wedge between Evie following her heart. Abel wants nothing more than Evie (Pixie) in his life. As they sneak behind everyone’s backs, their love for one another only strengthens. When it comes to a head—Evie has a choice to make.
 
Saffron has a way of painting a story so vividly, you are staring at it on a canvas. This book will leave you breathless; cheering this couple through their life; begging that they get their happy ever after and wanting to kick some of the side characters a** at the same time! This is a must read!

Nancy’s Review of Art of Loyalty

Art of Loyalty
By: M. Orgeron
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Vincent knows that loyalty is a huge thing in the life that he lives. He is loyal to Catherine Stern and she has always taken care of him. As he sees each of his brothers fall and find the women they are meant to be with he wonders what life has in store.

Brittany is happy with her choices in life. She takes care of those she loves. She does everything her way. What more could a girl want?

What happens when Brittany and Vin collide? Fireworks that is What.

My take on this book:

If you haven’t read the Stern family Saga you really need to. This book is so well written that you will not want to put it down. Vin is the quiet Alpha male that most women dream of and Brittany is a bull headed woman that takes no crap. You will feel like part of the Stern family.
