Love. That is all I have for this book.

I don’t care however others want to put it; this woman can write. I love the words she uses, I love the scenes she creates, and I love the sexy times she comes up with.

This time we got Jackson Merrill, and that’s pretty much all you need to know lol

 

Something I must add is; we’ve heard about stories like this one before, in fact, they sound a little bit too much like a soap opera, and I HATE those, if I come across a book like that, ever, I skip it or rate it 1 star, because they are boring as all hell.

But in this case, I was pulled into the very end by two things; the writing and Jax Fucking Merrill (heheh).

Notice I have not mentioned Brynn, didn’t you? That’s because I was pissed at her reluctance, I mean, this guy is what my dreams are made off, he only needed a super brain and wear Clark Kent glasses in my opinion.

At the end, we get a part where aa lot of people might be mad at Jax; but I wasn’t, I think he needed that and he needed to heal, because he went through serious shit a lot of people never move on from.

This book was sexy, funny, real, well written, well-paced, overall a great read!

Now I can’t wait for books 2 and 3, because Halliday was kind of an asshole and I spent 3 days plotting in my head what the next books could be about, I even told Ella Fox about it and Continue reading ‘Review and Giveaway: [Wilde Forever] (Wilde Women #1) by Suzanne Halliday’

“We don’t deal in futures”

This was a refreshing read for me. We get bombarded with these books about needy women, guys with asshole tendencies and fast and hard sex. Oh don’t get me wrong, I love me a guy that is a complete jerk but deep down we all know he’s got a soft spot for his girl. And I’m down for some fast and hard sex, too! But it is nice to read something out of the norm.

 

“There aren’t many lines I haven’t heard. Yes, I’d like to come over. I’d like that very much”

A little about this book:

Tim is a Lietenant Paramedic in NYC. His job requires for him to be fast, fast, fast. He also lives his life like this, at a quick pace. Sarah recently moved to Brooklyn from Sanfrancisco. She co-owns a food truck with her friend Trish. Tim has lived in The City all of his life but Sarah is just starting to get to know the concrete jungle.

 

“I play to win, Tim”

What I loved about this book:

I liked that it wasn’t a cliffhanger. I feel that almost every book out there is a series now a days. It was funny, sweet and sexy. I literally laughed out loud. The book wasn’t all about sex (yes, there was sex and I will get to that in a minute). I really liked Sarah and her take charge attiude and her no bullshit take on life. She didn’t waste time and got right to the point. A woman that knows what she wants. Plus, she wasn’t your stick thin, flat tummy with big tits character. She was average height (I consider my 5’4 frame average,lol!) and curvy with a “soft body”. Hey that sounds like me! Okay, maybe not!. Now to the sex: I loved the foreplay, the slowness of it oh and the teasing! And Tim? All I kept picturing was Chris Hemsworth but slightly slimmer. Yum! He didn’t know what hit him. Lastly, make sure you eat before reading this. My goodness, I need to find me some food trucks ASAP, preferably in New York.

 

“You eat like you have sex, full of attention. Slow. Absorbing it all.”

What I didn’t like as much:

I wanted a little more. But don’t we always want more? Not the ending, I think the ending was perfect for this story. I mean more of the meat and potatoes! The book isn’t even 200 pages and if it would have been a little longer, it would have included more of their lives. More of Tim and his life(during and after work) as well as Sarah’s. Maybe more of her and Trish’s friendship? What else besides the food truck did they do? More banter between Tim and his co-workers. But it’s the human nature in us. Always wanting to know more of these characters. And the mention of his height seemed a little repetitive to me.

 

“You know, I really thing I’m going to like it here”

Would I recommend this book?

Absolutely. I enjoyed it from begining to end. I laughed, craved some food truck grub and realized that I’m missing out on a lot by not going to New York!

 

Happy Reading!

About Afternoon Delight

Sarah Naylor, food truck co-owner and recent Manhattan transplant, savors each moment of her new job—whether it’s refining the truck’s menu, learning the city, or spending afternoons in bed with the hot paramedic who’s fast becoming her favorite customer.

Tim Cannon spends his days sprinting from one emergency to the next. He eats like he works—at top speed—somewhere along the line he lost his ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Hooking up with Sarah is just another way to cope with the stress of his job, until their afternoon trysts coax Tim into enjoying everything he’s avoided. Can Tim learn to balance his job saving lives with the everyday delights that make life worth living? If anyone can teach him, it’s Sarah….

I really don’t think I have ever been nervous about writing a review for a book before…not until NOW.  What If is…well, I just feel like I seriously don’t know what I can say about this book and depending on how much I say it could spoil the story.  And I SO don’t want to do that.  Maybe I can just say that it was a life experience, or a life (or lives) experienced through the words of Rebecca Donovan.  This best selling author has done an amazing job yet again.

I am a huge fan of the Danvers series by Sydney Landon so when I saw Pierced I just had to read it! Pierced is nothing like the Danvers books but I absolutely loved it and was hooked immediately!

Lucian Quinn is the definition of success; at 29 he’s created an amazing software company, has money, smoking hot looks, beautiful cars…you get the picture. But, he stays away from any serious relationship; never letting anyone get too close to him. His past has shown him the damage that can be caused by loving someone.

Lia Adams is a college student just trying to make ends meet and graduate. She ran away from a horribly abusive mother and step father to attend school and will do what she has to to make it through. Lia works as a date night escort; she is paid to accompany someone to functions, dinners…basically be arm candy. There’s nothing dirty about her job and absolutely no sex involved. One night she is hired by Luc to attend a dinner with him and so begins their amazing story.

I loved these two together from the moment they met. It was so cute and funny seeing Lia and Luc interact and I was hooked. But, thes Continue reading ‘Review [Pierced] (Lucian & Lia #1) by Sydney Landon’

I like Alice Clayton,  that’s a known fact; what I don’t like is the fact that lately, I’ve found her books are lacking something, and for the life of me, I can’t tell what it is.

Since we got Rusty Nailed (a book that annoyed me, big time, still, I laughed), I wanted to know more about Vivian (yes, I rather call her that), because I thought she was cool, and she is, but I was disappointed.

I was disappointed because Vivian also annoyed the hell out of me with her fixation with the half fly Hank, a guy you can tell since the beginning is not into her and is stupid as fuck, he’s muscle, and that’s about it.

I was also disappointed because she had a great thing right in front of her and she doesn’t realize it until the very end of the book, but if she realized that   at the beginning, we wouldn’t have a book to read, would we?

Something I loved, besides Clark, was every time she did something or something happened and she would go like “Aw Yeah…”; that shit is so me lol.

As to Clark, he was perfect, in all his “annoying” glory, he was something kind of perfect, but maybe is because I’m into that type of guy. I mean, look at him.

I felt the end was too damn rushed, and I asked a fellow reader about this, just to make sure it wasn’t just me, and yes, she agreed, and it’s because we didn’t get Vivian/Clark time, not in my opinio Continue reading ‘Review: [Screwdrivered] (Cocktail #3) by Alice Clayton’

ABOUT TORTURE TO HER SOUL

Don’t say it unless you mean it…

 

It’s a simple concept, one I’ve said time and again, but something people don’t seem to comprehend. You should choose every syllable carefully, because you never know when somebody will hold you to your word.

 

Somebody like me.

 

I’m not a good man. I’m not. I know. I have enough darkness inside of me to rid the world of every stitch of light. But there’s one I could never harm, one light I couldn’t bring myself to snuff out.

 

 

She thinks I’m a monster, and maybe I am. I taunt her with my touch, get a thrill out of torturing her soul. But I’m not the only one. The world is full of monsters, and I’m not the most dangerous one out there.

 

Not even close…

 

God help me, I love her.

 

I do.

 

And God help anyone who tries to take her from me.

TEASER!!

“Guess it’s true what they say.”

            The sound of Karissa’s voice draws my attention. Turning around, I see her standing at the bottom of the steps, eyes trained past me at the front door. Early morning sunshine bathes the area around it in a soft orange glow, making the brand new locks lining the door shine brightly. I spent all night fortifying the house, doing everything in my power to make the place secure.

            “And what, exactly, do they say?”

            Karissa’s eyes shift from the door to meet mine. Her hair is a mess, her pajamas disheveled. She clearly just woke up from sleeping hard, lost in tranquility, while I spent the past few hours drowning in paranoia. Every time the house creaked, I damn near clawed my way out of my own skin.

            “History repeats itself,” she says, “first as a tragedy, second as a farce.”

            Karl Marx. I recognize the quote.

            Daniel Santino must’ve taught it to her.

            Huh.

            I wave toward the front door. “Something about this is funny to you?”

            “Not really funny,” she says, slowly stepping closer. “It’s sort of curious, though, that I spent my entire life trapped behind locked doors and here it is, happening to me again. I always knew something was going on when my mother started buying extra locks and nailing down windows. It’s just a bit of déjà vu seeing you doing the same thing.”

            Hesitating, I reach into my pocket and fish out a set of keys. I toss them to her without warning, and they hit the wooden floor by her feet with a clang. Bending down, she picks them up, eyeing me curiously.

            “You’re not trapped here, Karissa.”

            Her fist closes around the keys, her gaze burning through me as she arches an eyebrow, silent for a moment before asking, “Aren’t I?”

            “No, you’re not,” I say. “You can leave the house whenever you want.”

            “Can I?”

            “Of course,” I say. “Doesn’t mean I won’t follow you, though.”

This is the story of 17 year old Anna, a girl rejected by her unloving mother and sent to live with a grandfather she barely knows. While living with him, she finds herself caught between two boys….the one who she loves obsessively and who can’t return her love, and the boy whose love she’s always had but she doesn’t know how to love back.

This is the author’s first full length novel, and as far as first novels goes, it was a pretty solid effort. I wasn’t blown away but there was enough there that it kept me interested, and underneath all the issues I had with the story I could still see the potential the author possesses.

Never in a million years did I think I would like Ben’s story more than every body else’s. Never. EVER.
Like, I hated the guy, with a passion, and when I found out he would have his book, I wasn’t looking forward to it.

So we get their story, Ben & Bell, and yeesus, I disliked her so much on this book,
so damn much, she annoyed the living daylights out of me, actually, all Kim Karr heroines piss me off, big time.

I can’t tell I forgive Ben for what he did to Dahlia, I mean, no, just no. But I loved seeing Ben in love again,
dude is so hot *.*

The excecution of an story is extremelly important to me, especially if they are connected, and this is something Karr did beautifully.

Did I mention how much Bell annoyed me? Ok.

Moving on, I also enjoyed the back story for secondary characters, and it made me sad all over again everytime Ben’s mum was mentioned, that woman was golden.
You can tell Ben is a loving, intelligent man, he just made some stupid ass decisions, and let me remind you again, dude is hot.

I would like to read a book or novella about Ben’s nephew, that kid is making me all kinds of curious.

 ABOUT FRAYED

 He didn’t think, he didn’t question—he just acted.

What she wanted, she took—without regard.

It was only one night, but it changed everything.

After losing his fiancée, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But he’s so deeply drawn to Bell Wilde that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting their spark… or maybe it’s his second chance at love.

Bell Wilde has just gotten her life back on track and may not be up the challenge of Ben Covington coming back into it. However, once the spark is reignited…there’s no stopping it. But even if they both manage to pull together their frayed hearts, a secret from Bell’s past just might shatter them both.
