I had to think about my review a bit before writing it down. This book really caught me by surprise! This book was incredibly moving in the beginning. Mereki & Emerson’s story gave me all the butterfly feels of a first love. It was so good.

“Ki,” I said, waiting until he faced me. “What?” He met my gaze. “I’m really glad you found me.” The corner of his mouth curled into a smile. “I didn’t know you were lost.” “Neither did I.”

Mereki and Emerson grew up together. They started off as friends and as time went on became something more. It was pretty powerful their connection they had. But something tragic happens and Emerson never really learned how to move on.
Years later Emerson is just living day to day. Her hopes and dreams are at a standstill. Then she meets Josh. He helps her by bringing her back to life.

The beginning of this book takes you on a ride of first love. All the up’s and downs. I loved it. But as I read on…. I was struggling a bit with Emerson. The decisions she was making and her withholding information from Josh.

This whole thing with Mereki was dragged on way too long. Once the book hit the 80% mark. With no real information as to why Mereki was acting the way he was acting with Emerson. I was starting to get frustrated. I honestly felt like this secret was being dragged out.
Which I was upset about… because this book started off so good.

Then when the big secret comes out. I honestly felt a little let down. I know others will see it differently. But to me… I wish I had known this right after the accident happened… It would have made more sense to me. Emerson would have been less crazy in my mind. Because that was my go to thought… omg… she’s crazy.

But… as the book neared to the end. It pulled me in once again. It was incredibly sad. I really felt for Emerson. She was in a state of denial for so long. It was really hard for her to let go.

“If you ever feel lost and lonely again, always remember that you’re made of the strong stuff.” He pointed to my drawing. “And this will always be your road map back to the light.”

Josh came into Emerson life at just the right time. He really pulled her out of her rock bottom. And saved her. And I loved how Emerson saved him when he really need to be saved.

This book wasn’t what I was expecting. It had it’s moments with me. I’m happy with the way it ended. I’ll definitely check out this authors other books.

REVEAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

The #1 New York Times Bestselling author Vi Keeland is back with a brand new standalone, Beautiful Mistake releasing on July 17th and we have the amazing cover for you today!

 

Model: Lucas Barbosa Gil
Photographer: Chuando & Frey
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

 

 

 

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

BOOK REVIEW: Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

33838194Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick.

Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet. Filled with hilariously awkward encounters and enough sexual tension to heat a New York City block, Shacking Up, from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting, is sure to keep you laughing and swooning all night long.

Melanie’s 4.5 Star Review:

unnamed

Yes, yes, yes!!! Shacking Up by Helena Hunting had the perfect dose of heat, romance, and laugh out loud humor to make for one heck of an addicting read. Once I got my hands on it, there was no putting it down. Today’s droopy eyes and incessant yawns are so well worth it, no doubt about it. I loved, loved the flirtatious feel from start to finish. It made me giddy and put a huge smile to my face – it all just made me feel so good.
From the very moment that Ruby and Bancroft bump into one another and accidentally land on each other’s’ mouths and tongues, the adventure only gets better and better. With the way that life has been throwing curve balls at Ruby, she didn’t expect one to actually knock her on her butt. Meeting Bancroft sets the wheels into motion, altering both their lives in the most unexpected yet the best kind imaginable. Ruby’s dream to make it big on stage, takes a disastrous turn when she bombs one audition after another leaving her homeless with a maxed out credit line. Going back to Rhode Island to become one of her dad’s pharmaceutical minions isn’t an option for her and with her bestie’s help, she lands a gig as a pet sitter for her bestie’s fiancée’s cousin. As luck would have it, Ruby finds herself pet sitting for Bancroft himself. The relationship that blossoms between them was amazeballs. Their teasing and the flirting just revved up each other’s engines and when it finally got going, they took off at 100 mph speeds. Holy wow, were the hottie tottie scenes SCORCHING flippin’ HOT!
An ex-rugby player with a name like Bancroft and a nickname like Baine, there was no way that this guy could be anything but naughty and dirty in bed. He did not disappoint. OMG you guys, I love, LOVE dirty talkers and he was the master of it. Every single moment that these two burned through the pages, they highhandedly singed every thread on my dang panties. Not only does he take very good care of Ruby under the sheets but he does so in all other aspects as well. He is protective and caring and so utterly sweet—I couldn’t handle the sighs that left my mouth.
I totally enjoyed this book. Though there were times when I just wanted to skip through certain parts to get to the ultimate prize. I just knew that once these two crashed together, the explosion would be vast and wild. And I was so on the money. Ack!!! I still can’t get over them. I guarantee that you will love this book as much as I did. Helena Hunting did such a great job with putting in every single element that I look for in a book. Shacking Up had me shackled from start to finish. This one is a surefire winner! Make sure to pick it up today.

We Like It Big Tunes:

Say You Won’t Let Go- James Arthur

I met you in the dark, you lit me up
You made me feel as though I was enough
We danced the night away, we drank too much
I held your hair back when
You were throwing up
Then you smiled over your shoulder
For a minute, I was stone-cold sober
I pulled you closer to my chest
And you asked me to stay over
I said, I already told ya
I think that you should get some rest
I knew I loved you then
But you’d never know
‘Cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go
I know I needed you
But I never showed
But I wanna stay with you until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
I’ll wake you up with some breakfast in bed
I’ll bring you coffee with a kiss on your head
And I’ll take the kids to school
Wave them goodbye
And I’ll thank my lucky stars for that night
When you looked over your shoulder
For a minute, I forget that I’m older
I wanna dance with you right now
Oh, and you look as beautiful as ever
And I swear that everyday you’ll get better
You make me feel this way somehow
I’m so in love with you
And I hope you know
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold
We’ve come so far my dear
Look how we’ve grown
And I wanna stay with you until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
I wanna live with you
Even when we’re ghosts
‘Cause you were always there for me when I needed you most
I’m gonna love you till
My lungs give out
I promise till death we part like in our vows
So I wrote this song for you, now everybody knows
‘Cause now it’s just you and me till we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
Oh, just say you won’t let go

LaClaire Nights by Dori Lavelle RELEASE BLITZ

 

Title: LaClaire Nights
An After Hours Novel
Author: Dori Lavelle
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 29, 2017

 

Blurb
Some marriages last
a week, a month, or a year. Others last a lifetime. Mine ends on my wedding night,
ten hours after the exchange of rings.
Our marriage vows shatter when Dustin Cardwell, the man I saved myself for,
looks me in the eye and tells me I failed between the sheets.

Our marriage ends before the ink dries, before the scent of my bouquet fades,
before the candles in our honeymoon suite burn out.

Three months later, I’m divorced and working as a massage therapist on the
LaClaire Cruise Ship, headed for the Caribbean. I’m desperate to get away, to
lick my wounds in private. I’m not looking to be another man’s disappointment.

Until Bryant LaClaire invades my space and makes my panties melt. The moment
our eyes meet, he makes it clear I’m his girl of the moment.

Drawing me in with his charm and good looks, he promises to repair my sexual
self-esteem while satisfying his own needs. A few LaClaire nights is all he can
give. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s an offer my body can’t resist.

But when my heart lures me into the heart and world of a man who carries a
devastating secret, I know I’m in danger of returning home with more pain than
I’d left with.

LaClaire Nights is a steamy full-length,
standalone novel with a happy ending.

**WARNING: Due to sexual situations and adult content, this book is not

My name is Lucy Tucker, and my life…it was perfect.

I worked the dream job. I had the most incredible family and friends. My
home, Whispering Willows, a ranch in Montana, was everything I could ever
wish for. My adoring fiancé, Samuel Stone, loved me unconditionally.

I had everything a girl could ever want.

But one fateful event shattered my perfect life. It’s unimaginable how
simple, ordinary words can change a person’s life forever. For me those
words were, “There’s been an accident.”

I thought Sam was my forever, but that forever came to a close the day
Saxon Stone, Sam’s identical twin brother, came back. Saxon returned to
Montana to help save Sam, however, the moment he entered my life, he turned
my world upside down. But through chaos I somehow found clarity—clarity of
who I was meant to be.

As time progressed, as seasons changed, and as a fire began to burn, I soon
realized that Saxon was there for another reason…he was there to help save
me.

BOOK REVIEW: Stand by A.L. Jackson

ALJackson-StandBookCover525x8_BW_MEDIUMZachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…

I’m Zee Kennedy.
Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.
When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.

No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.

For seven years, I’ve never lost focus.

Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.

Now she’s become my greatest temptation.
I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.
Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.

She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.

Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.
One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.
Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand…

Melanie’s 5-Star Review:

18446735_834697163353768_7050315529418488371_nThe end to every beloved series is always bittersweet, there’s no question about that. However, what rabid fans could only hope for is that the finale is the sort that the characters deserve. So for fans of the Bleeding Stars series, I am here to tell you that Ms. Jackson not only delivered but delivered it fiercely. In Stand we get to see a new side to A.L. Jackson’s writing. She hooks you with intrigue and keeps you wanting for more. I didn’t expect such a suspenseful story line but from the get go, Zee’s story was bound by so much secrecy and mystery. My heart was pulsing erratically, my palms sweating, and my mind going a hundred miles an hour trying to figure out Zee’s truth. It was a losing battle, impatiently begging for the pages to go by faster to reveal all the secrets wide open and at the same time hopelessly wanting the pages to slow so that I could relish the book just that much longer to avoid accepting the inevitable fact that Stand is the last of this heart tugging series.

Zee and Alexis had a powerful start to their story—quite reminiscent to that of Ash and Willow’s actually. There was this tangible connection that tethered them from the very first moment they’re introduced. A strange familiarity that caused both their walls to crumble – easily, effortlessly, extraordinarily.  I loved, loved Alexis. I loved how genuinely open she was about her feelings for Zee; always choosing to live and squashing down all her fears. She was all in, leaving behind any uncertainty and for me this was a breath of fresh air, something I always seem to crave from heroines.

With Zee’s world being surrounded by so much ambiguity, Alexis was exactly the kind of woman that he needed to fight for him. She was there to remind him of life’s meaning and to lead him to re-discover who he is. After losing Mark, Zee also lost himself. He harbored so much guilt and he felt the only way for him to atone for his sins was to protect his brother’s living legacy—Sunder. Stepping up to take over his brother’s place in the band as their drummer, he forgets to find happiness for himself, believing that he didn’t deserve a happy ending if Mark couldn’t have his. My heart broke for Zee so many times during this book. Having such a strong bond with my own siblings, I couldn’t help but empathize. I deeply felt his loss and the pain that came with it. So when the sun began to shine during his days and the stars began to glitter with promises of wishes coming true, my heart bloomed right alongside the love that blossomed between Alexis and Zee.

The last few lines of this book just about undid me. My throat bobbed heavily, tears prickled at the corners of my eyes, and goosebumps erupted across my skin.  Everything about this book just felt final because A.L. Jackson did an outstanding job with driving the entire story line in full circle. There was no stone in the sea left unturned. She made you truly feel like you were drowning to breathe both from Zee’s story alone and from sheer realization that, “OMG this is really it!” I have come to love all of the characters and their emotionally gripping journey. Every single one of them. Their stories that cause your heart to go haywire you’d swear it’s where lightning strikes. I cannot wait for you all to read this book, I guarantee you will not be disappointed one bit. These beloved characters will stay with me forever and if someone is smart enough to adapt these books into film you can bet I’d be the first one to stand in line for it. So yes, I am in utter denial as I finish up this review. I can’t imagine not ever getting a taste of the whole Sunder family again so I’m grateful for a thing called—re-reads.
