Rapture

Being introduced to new authors is a favorite of mine and I couldn’t wait to give this book my whole attention and boy did it take all my thoughts. I haven’t read many rockstar books but this one was different for me because they were a different type of rockstar that I wouldn’t be interested in seeing in person. Even though their taste in music wasn’t my flavor it didn’t stop me from being consumed by Justice.

Justice swept in and took control of all my thoughts throughout this book. I could feel apart of him hiding things from not only his fans but even from himself. The unknown of some things heightened my need to keep reading through it all. My struggle was with Hazel and I get it she’s devastated and life is meaningless now but what annoyed me was the fight she kept having with herself and then just giving in. I understand the struggle, going through my own issues but that doesn’t mean you project them onto other people. She chose to go to a public place where she could potentially meet people but she didn’t care who she would trap in her web of despair. I feel like I maybe being too hard on her but I got so angry with her about stupid shit she did to Justice. I get she had this disease but she just irritated the shit out of me. I did my best to try to like her but in the end I felt for her and cried a lot for her but I still couldn’t like her like I loved Justice.

The story is heartbreaking, soul breaking and so intense at times I had a hard time continuing without wanting to just crawl into a ball a cry. I’m an emotional reader and I couldn’t shake the feeling of dread. I was on edge most of the time waiting for something to break. A great story to read and my only big issue with it was the ending. I think it was a bit to abrupt. It was awesome reading the epilogue but I still was left wanting more. I’m differently interested in this authors work and I know she will do so much more each and every time. The most times you get the feel of each characters the more it will speak to us and as much as Hazel and Justice spoke to us here, I can only imagine the epic things to come!

Devoted To You

This new author started off with a hot one! Billionaires, boss/employee and even a submissive woman. So many things to desire in one book! I couldn’t put it down because I kept wanting more.

Alyssa seems like a naive young woman who just needs money to take care of her grandmother but when a chance meeting takes place she can’t get this dominate man out of her head. Things heat up and she knows it’s wrong but she can’t help with her young body feels when she’s around him. Despite what her morals tell her to do she can’t help but get caught up in him but when her decision effects her grandma will she end things? I loved Alyssa until she became this back and forth needy woman. I get she’s young and inexperienced but life happens. She should know more than any other woman!! Liam seems true to himself except for all the lying. I get wrapped up in the heat of him too but then get frustrated because something happens that I’m not informed of and makes me question things. His story just seemed unfinished.

It’s a great start off book. She’s got a great story but it feels like it was rushed a little to be finished and I’m missing key facts I need. Like what kind of company does Liam work for and what would lead them into the situation they get into?!? And how can he go from this asshole to sensitive guy to hurting people! Also, his part of the story when it was him didn’t seem male enough, like I could tell occasionally it was a male I was reading about but he had female qualities that shouldn’t have been there. I felt a few whiplashes but in the end that epilogue was perfect. I think this book was great and well put together for it being her debut but it felt a little unfinished at times.

Sloth

I love this series so much!!!! So many things happening and your brain just gets blown each time. This is my first book from this author and I’m loving the writing style.

Rush is pure sin wrapped in a male body. I’m loving the tech-nerdy man and his beautiful soul. I know he seems like a complete freak in each of the books but in here you get the real Rush and I fell hard for him. The way he cared for his mother, the horrible story about her life, it just made my soul cry for him. The passion you can feel burning off him speaks to me and I couldn’t help but beg for more of him! The way he speaks to Isabella and cares for her. 😍 Isabella isn’t like I thought she would be at all and honestly it was a bit unnerving that she would do the things she did so easily and without thought. I get it and completely understand her reasoning but it just seemed like a flip was switched and BAM her mind was changed. I know woman do this sort of stuff a lot but it didn’t seem plausible to me. (And yes I know this is all fictional but I need some believability to actually enjoy it).

Love love love this series and this book hardcore!! I only took off a star because I felt like something was missing throughout the book. Something didn’t feel finished about Rush and Isabella’s story. Great writing and loved most of it!! It just felt like it could’ve used more to it. Most of it just seemed repeated from the other stories but not much extra like they did.

Then He Happened

I had a very strong love/hate relationship with this book. This author can write some pretty incredible things and while this book has a great story, I had some trouble reading some of it.

Jason seems like such a bad boy at the beginning but then you quickly fall head over heels in love with the man. He honest to goodness seemed too good to be true. (Which he is, he’s fictional... I have to remind myself.) He’s got this easy going, musical loving, geeky side that I instantly grew attached to and just kept waiting to find more about him to love.

Eileen is actually the one who pissed me off the most. I get being there for your family and a people pleaser because I’m one of them. I do absolutely anything for my family and I try to please everyone at the sake of myself. BUT HOLY SHIT BALLS WOMAN!!! No fucking way would I put up with all that shit from Charlie!!! No.... just NO! I got so fucking angry at one point I tried to read as fast as I could do I wouldn’t just completely stop all together. I get things happen and sacrifices have to be made but being the only one to make them isn’t right. I would’ve skipped the event all together. Plan it, see some stuff through but then bail! Ugh!! But I was super proud of her in her moment and kept saying hell yeah!!

Crazy, crazy things happened during this book and some definite edits needed to happen but that didn’t effect my rating. I got confused at some of the words that word used to describe a body part... gloves??? Anyway.... just some words shouldn’t be used to describe body parts. Lol. I got a little lost at the use of a few words thinking “that didn’t sound right” but maybe it was part of an edit. I still applaud this book and the inspirational Eileen because shit, I wouldn’t have survived.

Holy shit what the hell did I just read!!!! Omg so freaking twisted and messed up!! I haven’t read anything from this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect but wow!! Mind blown!!

Sabastian was way worse than I ever thought he was going to be BUT it suits him. I don’t think this series would have him any other way!! The crazy shit going through his mind made me want to scream at him to get a fucking grip!! I knew that ending was coming but the way this story got there.....oh my goodness.

I feel like more could’ve been done with his story though, I feel like I didn’t get all of him.... that he’s more messed up and he really could’ve been more destructive. I need the next sin though!! Like I need it now!!!!! Omg! The very last lines of this story had me jumping up from my work chair and screaming “Ooohh SSHHHIITT!!” Incredible work on this book and want a fun character to get to play with during! 😍😉💜☠️

Wow. My first read from this author and it took me longer than I expected to read but HOT DAMN!! It was worth the long read and now I realize I haven’t read the others so I will be going back to get book 1 & 2! This author has so much involved in this story I have a hard time deciding how I want to express how I feel!

Finley is nothing like I have read before and she kind of upset me throughout the book. I had a bit of whiplash of emotions with her and after finishing the book I realized why she was all over the place. So yes, she was NOTHING like I have read before and even though I disliked her some of the time everything made sense at the end and it’s so incredibly worth it! 😉

Declan..... oh my word, Declan is also in a category all on his own!! This book has the most in depth characters I have ever come across. You think you know him and then BAM he throws something at your face you never expected. This sexy hunk of a baseball player is so complicated I was literally at the edge of my seat at work and would NOT work until I finished this one scene... please please read this book to get to that scene! (So worth it!!)

I am blown away by this authors words! You can usually get certain dramatic turns in some books but to have them ALL, is intense and could’ve been overwhelming but this author pulled it off. I cried, laughed, got worked up and even got so damn mad I wanted to punch someone; guys you will love this book!!!

I have to say I had a hard time reading this book and it has nothing to do with the writing or the author but everything to do with losing my own mom. I haven’t read from this author and I’m not even sure what her story is but all the emotions Sadie experienced in dealing with her loss was spot on. The point of view was different and each time you weren’t told who was going to be the voice but you could tell and even though I usually don’t like that it was fairly easy to tell from the beginning of each chapter and didn’t effect my reading.

I felt Sadie’s emotions and the first time she sees Logan and their interaction made my heart sing! Watching Sadie struggle with a passion she loves because it hurts to do without the person you love is so heartbreaking. I got gutted so many times in the beginning because of the struggle and even though she had great eye candy it still wasn’t enough. You can see the ache Logan feels while looking at a heartbroken Sadie and it just makes you cry for everyone.

This series is so great and I’m loving it... my only concern is I wasn’t given a specific order to read them and in this book she talks about other couples and I’m afraid it may have been ruined. I hate spoilers and so if it wasn’t a spoiler then that’s great but I’ll just have to wait and see. (I will update my review to let everyone know.)

Being my first read from this author I’m definitely intrigued by his writing! It is a short read and you jump right into the drama with this friends to lovers read. I was only put off by one aspect of this book and it’s not the authors fault but my own personal opinion which I try not to take that out on my rating.

The book is written in a different point of view than I use to and took me a minute but I quickly got the gist after the first chapter. I do have to say that Faye is like most typical girls now days. I couldn’t believe how bold she was to do what she did....part of me wanted to believe something crazy would’ve happened, like her being questioned by the police but that didn’t happen, something crazier happened.

Terry.... or poor Terry has gotten in a pickle with his best friend and considering their friendship and many other issues I saw the ending coming. What I didn’t see coming is that end end of the book coming! But that does make me antsy for the next book though. Even though I do have some issues with the book, the writing style and the overall FREAKING HOT of this book has me wanting more!!! I would’ve liked a little more about the friends and more in Terry’s mind before the book ended and before the drama started but it was intense.

This may get some backlash for my opinion but I am giving a very generous 4 stars but I would probably go 3.5 if I’m being honest. I freaking love Leigh so hardcore but I just couldn’t get into this one. I knew it might be a difficult read for me but I nearly stopped reading about 65% through.

I did not like Francesca at all. I hate to say it but she was whiny and so annoying! I understood she was is horrible situations but even when those situations turned good she spit on it in disgust. I grew so angry that I wanted to throw up when she was talking to Angelo in the rain. I read that part and got so sick I had to stop reading all together. She grew up in the last chapter and epilogue but I could not stand her 19 year old self being the way she had been. I could possibly be taking this too much to heart but I did not like her. And the notes.......she took the notes so freaking literal and I just got fed up!

Now Wolfe, holy hotness!!! I got to read both sides and understand his actions more than Francesca did so in some parts I didn’t hate her as much but her age showed and I didn’t like it. Wolfe knew exactly what he wanted and how he was going to get it. He made me fall for him while he was being the way he was to his bride. I loved him fiercely at their introduction and knew he would be a hell of a character!!!

I am so sorry that I didn’t like this book as most did but I really disliked Angelo and so many characters in this book. I wish you nothing but the best with this book. This just wasn’t for me. You came across cheating, abuse, death, violence, blackmail and even some love but the one I couldn’t get passed was the first....cheating. It’s a no go for me.

Thunderstruck was so freaking hot and I blew my mind wild! I haven’t read from MariaLisa deMora and I am ashamed because her writing just had me squirming in my seat from the beginning!! Now I need more!!! What a way to begin the book! Loved it

Out of Sight by Giana Darling was oh my goodness crazy! Shocked, nervous, turned on and ready for more were just a few of the emotions I felt during this part of the book! Wow! I need more of these two because holy moly that was crazy and freaking hot as heck!!

Hellraiser’s Reckoning messed with me so bad!! Like Amo Jones always messes with my head but she gets me and always writes what I need! I can’t believe the stuff Melissa goes through and I would have the same thoughts she did because OMG it’s Hella!! Ahhh!! I need more!!

Okay, honesty... I didn’t like the beginning of Hollow Heart by Anne Malcom. I just thought it was too much in her head and I understand but dang when we get to the 😳 spot, I was speechless. As twisted as it sounds I think this was my favorite of all the short books. I think I’m in love with Scarlett and I definitely can’t wait to find out more about what happens with the club!

Long Time Coming by Chantal Fernando was actually my least favorite because of the build up and then the ending wasn't as big a the build up would like you to think it was going to be. I haven't read from this author yet and I was extremely excited to read from her because of all the praises she has gotten and don't get me wrong the story was great and I really really liked April and her ability to take care of herself but the build up wasn't what I thought it would be in the end. Left me pretty disappointed that it would end the whole thing like the way it did. I will definitely look into other books by this author and see if things are different.

Several of these authors I have never read before and I will assure you wont be my last because they just tapped into a part of my heart that will forever be dark! I had a few issues with some of the authors but this was a great book and made me fall more in love with darker reads!

I really really enjoyed this book!! I know I only gave 4 stars and that really bums me out but I am not sure how much I like the idea of this book. Please don’t get me wrong I really REALLY loved reading it and I can’t wait to read the next one of this series but I just didn’t like watching her get bullied and no one really doing anything about it. I loved almost all of the supporting characters and man did Andrew freaking surprise the crap out of me!!!!

Jeanette was a rockstar and I loved meeting her and watching the way she reacted to the girls!! Amelia (love that name!!) was a main character that to me didn’t seem like she should have been bullied. But I guess you can never really tell who is bullied in the first place. I saw myself in this girl so much, even the Harry Potter fan (which I am currently watching because of this book!), and that’s why I think it pissed me off so much. She may not think she is strong but going to school everyday and just being there proves she has strength. I knew I would also fall in love with Max!! I have a thing for bikers!

I really loved how the author showed so many different sides to each character and the growth of each one. Being in high school and dealing with these issues is tough and to add to your insecurities just buries you alive. Congrats on this greatly written book!!

This author is new to me but the idea of this story had me guessing what could happen. I had immediately fallen in love with Liviu and Mano!! Even with them being supporting characters made this story come together! I had a few issues with some words I didn’t understand since the book is set in Paris but as with all books, I was expecting that to happen.

A few parts that had me questioning some moments were that it took a while for us to find out what happened to Liviu’s dad and I understand that it was part of the build up but that frustrated the crap out of me. I loved the friendship Liviu’s mom, Dana, had with the vet and Manon. The relationship she has with Manon is the type we wish all our friendship could amount to and the fact that she becomes close friends with the vet made my heart so happy. The build up of this story, the missing people from their lives and the romance made for a very intense and intriguing book. I strongly disliked a certain person in this book and what happened with this person is the main reason for the star being taken away. I got super angry and upset I thought about not finishing. The ending also felt rushed to me, we had this amazing build up and reveal but then the HEA got very rushed. Great effort ad story! I loved this idea!!

Not what I was expecting!!! Logan is such a talented writer and you can always connect with his characters on deeper levels but I felt something missing from this one. I’m a huge fan of dark reads and while this one has some pretty twist shit happen throughout the book that has you saying “No Shit!” Out loud but I still felt it could’ve gone a littler darker. While I understand Logan hasn’t written a dark dark book I guess I had my hopes set ridiculously high. I love all of Logan’s books and while I am a big fan of Evan and his hot self this wasn’t my top read from him.

Evan is all man and I love his character hardcore!! I love the unknown that is Evan and his manly self!!! I even love Bella but during times I didn’t like her that much because of certain events I didn’t understand. The push and pull these two have of sexual tension and the electricity they expel from one another has you squeezing those thighs together whenever that tension is ready to snap! I dislikes Alex so much it isn’t even funny!! But even with all of that the ending was NOT what I was expecting and blew my mind!! I love the flashbacks and how Logan just puts you in the mood!! This bestseller wasn’t quite what I was hoping for but it’s a book you have to read to understand the shock of what Logan throws at you!!

Wow!! This was my first read from this author and let me tell you..... holy hotness!! I love this type of read, my sisters best friend, but I haven’t read many and so it was very refreshing.

A few aspects of this story was a little off for me such as Kelsa’s job profession... there are times when it’s talked about but we don’t really know what it is until the very end and that was a little annoying. Another one is the part about Kelsa’s boyfriend Drex has an ex of some sort; that whole thing confused the shit out of me and I think could have been better explained. But getting to know Renee and her love her fashion while getting to know Cam.

Parts about Renee really annoyed me and upset me about certain men in her life but Cam also has some annoying and manwhore ways about him I did not like. But the sexual tension between Renee and Cam were off the charts hot as fuck. I can’t wait to see what else happens with these two!!

Added to review after more research...

This book should have had a few more defining aspects of their lives if it is meant to be a standalone. Personally I would have liked to have read about some of their backstories from the beginning.

The anticipation with this book is agonizing!! This author has pulled me into her world of Everhart Brothers and I’m completely swept away. The journey each brother has taken is such a struggle but when they finally overcome their insecurities, pain or even their own beliefs it’s incredible to read. I applaud this author and her talent for writing not only such nail biting scenes but also writing with such devotion and love I could feel throughout each story. No matter what each person was going through I could still feel an overpowering amount of love for each other.

I think Hazel is my favorite person but also the one I disliked the most. Her struggle with her ex Elliot is one I could completely understand because of the way things were left but what she did to each man hurt my heart so much. Watching her go through so much pain about her parents in Santa Cruz but then also watch the pain about her love she trusted with each man to just be tossed aside, my chest hurt so bad for her throughout but also was angry with her.

I had so many mixed feeling about Elliot it was unreal! I wanted to hate him at the beginning but I felt so bad for what he was going through I secretly wanted him to win the girl. But, then his stupidity would show and I didn’t want her to fall back in love with him.

Scott on the other hand held my heart from the beginning. Scott is the glue that holds is family together since their parents death but what holds him together is her and my whole heart wanted to believe they were meant for each other. While Scott held my heart and I applauded him for his actions I still wanted to smack him in the head to tell him just run away with her and be happy but he was smarter than I was and knew he couldn’t be happy unless she made the decision. I waited and waited but the longer he stayed away the more I grew scared and when I got to the end it wasn’t anything like I thought it would be between all of them.

I need Fitzhenry’s story and to know if this man finds his sole mate. Fitz makes me laugh and I love his relationship with Hazel!! He is her hero at times when she needed it the most. I am so grateful that I got to read this series because it makes me feel so much during each book!! I would recommend all who enjoy reading about love and life read this series!!

I’m actually a little exhausted after reading that book. This is a brand new author to me and as much as I knew about this book before reading it, I didn’t realize the extent of all the emotions I would be experiencing. I do have to applaud this author for being true and expressing herself in a way I have never read.

Willow is all over the place and at first I didn’t really understand and I was super annoyed with her at times. I didn’t understand.... I have had my own issues with mental health and I understood some of the things she was thinking about herself but I don’t think anyone truly knows what’s going on with themselves. I really loved finally understanding her story and seeing the chances in her life especially when it came to the Everhart brothers.

Hunter isn’t what I expected him to be and I’m not sure where or why I assumed he would be different than he was but he was way better, even at the beginning, than I assumed. Even though he still has his struggles at the beginning you could see the want to be different than he is everyday. The development of his character swept me away almost immediately. But just the idea of having all the brothers become a part of my family is what I think I craved the most. Having these fiercely protective men standing guard made me wish my brothers were different.

Even though I am exhausted from reading Willow and Hunter’s story I am extremely excited to see who is next and see how these men carry on with their lives. I really loved the knowledge this book puts out about each of their disorders and speaks volume about how much research and respect this author has for her readers. I appreciate the dedication and time you took to make sure to get each detail exactly correct or as close to correct as she could.
