I honestly wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this book but the teasers were awesome and the blurb caught my fancy right away! This book is dark—very dark and for those of us—like myself that love a dark read—this is right up our alley. It has every element that a dark read should have—an ominous alpha male—a heroine attracted to the darkness in the man and some very disturbing but fascinating scenes. I read this book with the need to flip to the next page immediately; never missing a second that had me almost suspended in the book. See, there is so much to the book but if I give too much away; the beauty that is this wonderful read will be ruined for you. However, let me set it up for you. Iris wakes up inside a box. She is groggy and she’s out of it. A man appears and right away; shows his dominance; telling her he could kill her if he wants yet through all of this; she is attracted to the man. This stockholm twisty read will have the reader asking so many questions throughout the book and at the end—the whole story will transcend reality—leaving you wanting more.

Racing Dirty and Racing Dirty: LA
By: J. Lynn Lombard
These books are centering around the racing world. And what a hot world it is. Racing Dirty is Xavier and Izzys story. They have a past that hurt everyone. And Izzy ran away to L.A. Xavier goes into a really bad place while she is gone. Nolan is the only one that can keep him from totally falling. But then tragedy strikes and Izzy comes home. When the truth comes out the the danger begins.
Racing Dirty: LA is Nolan and Ashleys story. The best friends of Xavier and Izzy have one night together in Michigan and they can’t forget it. And when Ashley finds herself in serious danger the first person she calls is Nolan. He quickly finds her in LA and they get to work figuring out how to fix all the issues. But the secrets that come out are not only dangerous but life altering.
My take on the books:
These books are definitely page turners. The twists and turns will keep you guessing. Even though I know nothing about the racing worlds these books did not make me feel like I didn’t. The secondary characters are awesome really making me want more. Do not miss this series.
Until next book. ~Nancy
End of Day (Jack and Jill Book 1)
Jewel E. Ann
I’ve never been in awe over a female character as I am over Jessica Day/Jillian Knight. This book made me reaffirm that Jewel E. Ann is one heck of an author, as this book flows well with the life of Jillian in present day and Jessica in present day.
This book is part mystery/ part romance and part of the wonderful story telling that is Jewel E. Ann. Jessica/Jillian and Jude/Jackson have a secret. It’s a big secret that builds from the second you start reading the first sentence. It only continues to hook the reader as I sat on my couch hoping the world would just allow me continue reading so I could soak in the story. As you read from present day to their past, the flow is so easy and as the reader; you will not skip a beat.
There are so many reasons I loved this book; Jessica and her lace wearing panties to the mailbox in her red rainboots is only one. I love the free spiritedness of Jessica/Jillian and how she could really give a rat’s drunken rear of how she’s judged.
I am not sure how else to describe this book and being able to give it a just review without too many spoilers. The twists and turns will make you devour the next page and the next page until you are done—running to download the next book to your kindle.
There is a lot going on in this story; as it gives way to the next one with her brother Jude/Jackson. As always, Jewel E. Ann makes this story a must read for everyone!
Breathe (The Program book 2)
By NM Catalano
Wow, wow, wow! I freaking love this story and all the raw power that it’s written with. First, I love a good story that shows love is love in any way. This story hits so many boxes for me. First, there are some hot mercenaries. That in of itself should make it a must read for me.
Each book of this series follows a certain man.
Book One is Rock
Book Two is Snake
Books Three is Gringo
Book for is Bull (not out yet)
Though this book is primarily Snake and Raven, there’s so much more. In book one, Canvas, you see the love of Summer and Rock form. In 1.5 (a novella) called Trifecta, you see the love of Rock, Snake and Summer. (Yes, women—this is MMF at it’s finest and NM Catalano brings you to your knees with these manly creatures.)
This book still follows the story of Rock and Summer but after Snake meets Raven; the four of them jive very well together (if you know what I mean). The story continues and you still see some of Summer and Rocks story as you are also given way to Gringo and Sasha’s story. The story intertwines and each person builds to the next—creating an explosively sexy masterpiece.
Yes, as I mentioned, there is MMF action going on and I was all over that too! The pièce de résistance was the MMFF that was associated with the book and made it a story I never wanted to end. The writing is wonderful and like everything by NM Catalano, it will not be the last book I read by her!
This gives you background going into Breathe. I would say you should read this between Canvas and Breathe and quite honestly, it is hot story you won’t regret!
Congratulations to Bella Love on her new release. In celebration, I (Leigh) am posting my review of Unconventional (one of my favorite books of all times) and Nancys’ review on Unforgivable. Y’all these books are so good!
By Isabel Love
What do you do when you relationship doesn’t mimic conventional means. Does it mean you do not love as deep as others. No, never.
This is a beautiful story of two people hurt beyond recongnition but when they both let one another in; they can live again. Charlie deals with a loss that was never his to choose and Quinn from a deep loss she was never able to say good-bye to. They are both broken souls but with one another become whole again.
This book is off the chart hot and the sex scenes are those of legends. In the end; this book looks deeply at releationships and what the world deems as right and wrong. It doesn’t bother them that they are unconventional. They embrace it and we love them because of it. I love Isabel’s writing style! Can’t wait until more! This is a five star off the charts must read!

My take on this book:
This book will hit you right in the feels. Even if you have never experienced the situations Isabel has the writing ability to make you feel just what Wesley and Anna are. From the heartbreak to the happiness to surprise. This was my first book by Isabel Love but will not be my last. Do not miss this book. You will regret it.

Watch Me Follow
by Harloe Rae
This story is everything and more! From the beginning, you want to know more about Ryker. He is genuine but mysterious and wow is that a sexy combination. His one focus in life is caring for Lennon who he follows at a safe distance.
As the years stretch on, he becomes a little more relaxed and allows Lennon to know he is around. She remembers him from High School. Actually she has never forgotten him from High School. He intervened when she was in danger and she never let the image of her protector stray far from her heart. Throughout the years, he has been her hidden knight in shining armour. When he finally allows her to see the man who has always been a constant for her; she is able to honest with him too.
There is something about Harloe’s writing that allows for us to cheer on Ryker and want him to stalk us too! The level of writing in this book is excellent—bringing the characters to life in such a real way. I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Rae! She has a new fan in me!

Without You (Survivor Series Book 2)
By: Emilia Finn
Scotch knew the minute that Samantha walked into Science class that she was the girl he would marry. So he starts trying to get her to know it. For three long years she keeps turning him down.
Samantha wants nothing more than to leave the little town to peruse her dreams not those of her parents. She keeps telling Scotch no so that no hearts are broken. But he finally wears her down.
They have a great year. They get married. But then everything gets screwed up.
13 years later Samantha is back and needs Scotch to help her. Can they work through the past?
My take on this book:
I have finally found out how Scotch got his nickname. This book was wonderful even though I felt it in my heart. The miscommunication between Scotch and Sammy makes you want to jump through the book and smack them both for not defending themselves and making the other see the truth. I loved that we heard from characters from the Rollin Series also.
Till the next book ~ Nancy
