A new Read: Shagged by Alex Wolf

ShaggedShagged by Alex Wolf
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The author gift me this ARC and I was excited to read a fresh new author. I’m glad I did.

Here are my thoughts:

The story flows real well with a clever and interesting writing. It made me laugh quite a bit. Very enjoyable.

The Boss was to be understood as an arrogant guy, most billionaires hint that, suspicious and careful about whom they trust, but I didn’t feel that when this boss was so concerned to know who’s the fault was without hurting anyone, when his electronic assistant made him almost miss a very important meeting and making his house routine a little more stressful.

Will a human assistant break his ice?

Is he prepared to handle this new woman?

You have to read if to find out.

I’m very curious to read more from Alex!

The End Zone by L. J. Shen

End-Zone-Release-Blitz.jpg

The End Zone, a sexy friends to lovers romance from L.J. Shen is available LIVE!

Jolie Louis is a smart girl.

She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea.

He’s a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can’t get rid of.

Sadly, it is also the very reason she can’t seem to stay away from him.

No, wait. That’s not fair. They’re also roommates, at least until May, when they graduate from college.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester.

She tells herself that she can handle it.

He’s just the boy she saved ten years ago, right?

Wrong. So very wrong.

He is a man now, and she is his captive

Heart, body, and soul…

** THE END ZONE is now available with an extended epilogue and surprise bonus content that will blow fans of L. J. Shen away! **

About L.J. Shen:

L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets people’s birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

My Review:

A quick read enjoyable romance tale

from characters that have grown

from friends to lovers.

I wished there was more romance in Sage words

oh well, if you find love, no one said it was easy,

all hearts and flowers.

If you want it real you got it. 😉

The Boy & His Ribbon by Pepper Winters 💙💜🖤

SBPRBANNER-TB&HR-RB.jpg

The Boy & His Ribbon by Pepper Winters
The Ribbon Duet Book 1
Publication Date: April 3rd, 2018
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

ebook

“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret?

I’ll tell you what you do.

You lie.”

REN

Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.

His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.

But then…he ran.

He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.

DELLA

I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything.

My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it.

At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.

For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.

But by the end…he loved me.

The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.

And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

My ARC Review : The Boy & His Ribbon 💙 by Pepper Winters

The Boy and His Ribbon (Ribbon Duet Book 1)The Boy and His Ribbon by Pepper Winters

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Originality
Is the word I can think of when digging in Pepper Winters new favorite writing.

As innocent as I am going blind in this book I understand why Pepper says this book did fly of her fingers.

You will too, once you have it in your hands, heart and soul.

Why I love it ? Because it’s not an ordinary love, the one that is safe, not an ordinary book.

Keep your mind open. It’s a journey, it’s a lesson. From a friendship to a love to fight and die for.

Her writing showed me eighteen emotional years. Did I struggle, did I ask for more?

I was burned, I bled. And now…

I have to wait for a couple of months…
Outstanding beautiful poetic story told by the best!
See you in June.

Twin Sacrifice by Jennifer Lane

Twin Sacrifice
by Jennifer Lane
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: February 28, 2018

My twin brother is determined to kill himself, but I won’t let him. 

I just discovered the sacrifice he made for me when we were young.


Now it’s time I return the favor. This time I’ll be the one with the secret.

Psychologist Matthew Durante’s twin brother, Justin, has struggled with mental illness since their parents died in a house fire. After Justin is accused of setting off a bomb that killed an innocent woman, he lands in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital.

In the face of Justin’s unrelenting suicide attempts, Matthew grows frantic to keep him alive. And as the pieces of their past fall into place, Matthew decides bold action is his only choice, no matter the cost.

Set against the backdrop of weapons manufacturing, terrorism, and a dark family secret, Matthew and Justin fight for survival, redemption, and most of all, for each other.

4,5*

 

To be honest I was very excited to read a thriller after all the romance trends. Once I received this Arc I was so thrilled … see what I made here 🙂

Twin Sacrifice is the deal! A gripping psychological thriller like the blurb truly says and you can imagine the sort of unexpected twists and turns.

Got me captive from the start.

The characters felt real which kept me tossing and turning in bed for hours.
Today we deal with so many issues … some we keep way and hope to stay way.
Not for these twins. This powerful twin bond, this love, no matter what. Sacrifices and not giving up to save each other.

I can’t tell you more, without spoiling.

I’ve enjoy reading it very much. I hope you too.

My Review : Pearl White by Lindsay Marie Miller

Pearl White: A Mystery Thriller Romance (Murder in Savannah, #3)Pearl White: A Mystery Thriller Romance by Lindsay Marie Miller

This is my first book from Lindsay. I’ve realized that this is not the first book in the series so I was a little nervous if I would get along with the story.

Figure it out the young couple was thinking on marriage in a way young people don’t these days. They were very mature for their age.

It took a while to get physical. Then again 18 year olds have a lot of questions. It turned out great. There are a few surprises along the way.

I’ve enjoyed reading it and the author kept me turning the pages.

What happens next?

Expert

 

 

Maybe he really did feel bad for the way he’d treated me.

Yeah, maybe he did.

But did that change anything?

He’d still treated me poorly and who was to say he wouldn’t again?

Just because people felt awful for doing something didn’t mean they wouldn’t repeat the crime.

The real problem was my attraction to him.

I could admit it.

I was attracted to the son of a bitch.

There was something deeply wrong with me that I could be attracted to a man I didn’t even like.

Turned out that lunch with my colleagues was a terrible distraction idea. Because Henry was dining at The Bristol Lounge with none other than Caine Carraway.

“Maybe we should go somewhere else,” I said as we stood in the lobby outside the restaurant. Henry hadn’t spotted us yet.

Barbara frowned. “This is your favorite place. You love the Bristol Burger.”

I did love the Bristol Burger.

And for the first time in weeks, I was hungry.

Dammit.

No man was chasing me away from my goddamn burger.

“You’re right.” I nodded, sounding more assured than I actually felt. “But I’ll walk on your left side.”

My friend eyed me in confusion as I huddled at her side, trying to hide behind her as the host led us up the few stairs onto the main floor of the restaurant and right past Henry and Carraway’s table near the bar area, to a larger table at the back of the restaurant. As far as I could tell, he hadn’t spotted me and there were now pillars between us that I could hide behind.

Relieved, I slid into my chair beside Barbara.

“Drinks?” the waiter asked.

We’d finished giving him our orders when the sight of Henry Lexington walking into view around one of those aforementioned pillars and toward our table made my pulse skitter.

He gave me a soft smile as if we hadn’t been enemies up until twenty-four hours ago. “Miss Ray, what a pleasant surprise.” That soft smile grew into a roguish grin. “Are you stalking me?”

I arched an eyebrow, wondering what the hell kind of game he was playing now. “A burger. I’m stalking a burger.”

“The burgers are very good here.”

“Mr. Lexington,” Barbara said beside me, sounding delighted to see him, and awfully familiar. “What a pleasure to see you.”

“You too, Barbara. And please, I’ve told you before—smart, beautiful women should call me Henry.”

I didn’t know what to do first: be surprised they knew each other or gag at his flirting with her.

“You know each other?”

“I know everyone worth knowing.” He winked at Barbara and she tittered like a schoolgirl.

Dear God.

And then I was the focus of his attention. He leaned against Andrew’s chair who was, as always, oblivious to anything but himself. “So this burger … will it put you in a good mood?”

“Excuse me?”

Those blue eyes were too intense, much too intense. “A good enough mood to agree to have lunch with me tomorrow?”

I was going to kill him.

How dare he put me on the spot in front of my colleagues, in front of Barbara! What? Did he think I’d be civil to him because we had an audience? I scowled. “No.”

“Are you seeing someone?” he persisted.

“No, she’s not,” Barbara interjected, giving me an “Are you crazy?” look. “And yes, she’s free for lunch tomorrow. You can pick her up from the station at one.”

“Fantastic.” Henry gave her a grateful, gorgeous smile before turning it on me. “See you tomorrow.”

He was gone before I could even get past the shock that had sealed my lips.

* The Redemption of Emma Devine * by Nancee Cain

From Nancee Cain:

This is Book 2 in the Pine Bluff Novels. Contemporary romances that are stand alone stories. However, characters from other books will make appearances. (This is my favorite kind of story… you can revisit your favorite characters but NO CLIFF HANGERS!) So visit Pine Bluff, Alabama: where everyone knows your name and your business!

After the upheaval of being dumped by his girlfriend, David Patterson leads a quiet life as a high school teacher in the small Southern town of Pine Bluff, Alabama. Soon to enroll in seminary, his dreams are within his grasp.

But a chance encounter with Emma Devine changes everything. She’s on the run, desperate, and surviving by any means possible. His pastor’s heart longs to help her—and the rest of him is rather intrigued as well.

His random act of kindness brings them together, but Emma makes an unfathomable decision—one that threatens to destroy two lives, though her intention is to save one.

Four years later, Emma returns, seeking redemption. But can David—whose dreams took a very different course after their last meeting—forgive her and risk losing everything?

My Review

The Redemption of Emma Devine (A Pine Bluff Novel)The Redemption of Emma Devine

by Nancee Cain

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

My first impression:

David is a Knight … hard to find these days… without a shinny armor.
He doesn’t need it, he fights and help others with a powerful weapon: Kindness.

A chance turns Emma in his way. A Knight never leaves his lady in distress.
He can see good through all the bad in the world.

Terrible decisions and misunderstandings make this story unexpected but very captivating,
not simple yet many hard situations were handled with deep care. A very satisfying read.
I love how Nancee writes.
Waiting for the next.
