Release + Review - Best I Ever Had - S.L Scott


 The storm.

The man.


Both come without warning.


My heart opens to Cooper Haywood the moment we meet. How can it resist? He’s charming, devastatingly handsome, and sweeps me off my feet before I realize the impact he’s making. And then it’s too late.


We fall too fast to worry about the consequences.


We love so hard that we ache when we’re apart.


Even though I have a past that still haunts me and he has a future that could put us at risk, none of that matters when we’re together.


Until it does.


And then everything changes.


Although the best thing he ever gave me now calls me Mommy, I can’t help but wonder if Cooper Haywood and that fateful storm were one and the same.


Louise's Review


Best I ever Had is a standalone HEA, it starts off slow giving us the where it all began and their story. With an assignment due and a storm that has taken out the power Cooper finds himself at a coffeeshop where he can't take his eyes of Story.
Cooper comes from money and proving his worth at a school that has his name all over it is big shoes to fill.
When Coopers future is sealed, he does everything to protect Story even if it means its to his own demise or could it set up a forever in the future?

I personally enjoyed this story, it had one of my favourite tropes, i look forward to reading more from this new to me author.

Release + Review - Deviant Princess - Tracy Lorraine




 USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.


I should have known better than to play with fire...

I’d been burned by Theo Cirillo enough to know that I should have seen this coming.

He loved to show me his merciless side, but I couldn’t stay away from the deviant even if I wanted to.

A prisoner of my own making, playing a game without knowing all the rules. Until the lies he’d been telling, the secrets he’d been keeping began to unravel around us.

He’s the only person I trusted with the truth about my past, but my confession was all for nothing.

He never cared. He already knew.

He was only manipulating me.

Using me.

I was nothing more than a job. A nut he had to crack.

And he split me right open, but he’s about to get a shock because I’m not the kind of girl to roll over and take it.

I’m Emmie Ramsey.

And I’m about to make him pay for ever trying to play me.


Dear reader,
Deviant Princess is the second book in Emmie and Theo's deviant trilogy and the fifth book in my dark mafia, high school romance series Knight's Ridge Empire.


Louise's Review
Theo and Emmie's story continues and you might want to hold on because this one is a ride and it will take you the long way, Tracy gives us some answers but we are left with more by the end!

Clear your schedule because once you start you wont want to stop.

Family secrets are unveiled and just when you think you have it all figured out; BAM it all blows up in front of you, leaving broken pieces all over the place.

Tracy has again outdone herself with this story, I couldn't get enough of it. Now I have to wait till March to get answers which I have no doubt will lead to more questions!

This story HAS to be read in order, if you haven't started Knight's Ridge Empire I highly recommend that you do and start from the very beginning.

Excerpt


Swish, swish. 

The windshield wipers were busy at work this morning. It’d been raining since late the night before, and now there was just a whole dreary feel to the day. Dark and gloomy, matching my mood. It was perfect. 

Swish, swish. 

“Are you nervous, miss?” 

I wasn’t responding, because this isn’t how things were supposed to be. I wasn’t supposed to wake up in the middle of the night and find the bed empty. And I wasn’t supposed to have to be escorted by one of our guards down to the apartment building’s gym to find my boyfriend , the guy I loved, the guy who was so not a secret from the entire world anymore, pummeling a boxing bag so hard that his knuckles ripped open every night. It was not right that I had to stand on the side, waiting for him to fight through his haze before he noticed I was there, and then watch as blood dripped from his hands to the floor. 

But all of that was happening. Because three weeks after there’d been a kidnapping attempt on me, after he had saved me, everything was just, simply, not okay. 

To be more frank, everything was shit. And here I was. In the back of an SUV being driven by one of my two personal bodyguards, to a school that I used to daydream about attending, while my boyfriend, that guy I had come to love so much, was heading into his own personal nightmare. Fitz, my guard, clued in on my state and didn’t ask again, but his eyes were on me . He saw. He more than saw, and I knew I’d be getting a call from Kash about two minutes after the first chance Fitz had a moment to text his boss that I was not okay. 

Because I wasn’t. Today was the day all my dreams were supposed to come true. Instead, I was a week late going to my graduate program and I wanted to be anywhere except where I was going. And I had no say, because the world found out in a big way I was the daughter of Peter Francis, a tech legend that I’d grown up idolizing until I found out myself, this past summer, that he was also my father. 

And then there was my boyfriend, Kash Colello, whose grandfather was one of the richest men in the world, but that came with strings and dangerous alliances with the dark underground of the world. My boyfriend, with his inherited wealth, now that he had come out of the shadows to the world, and whose “coming out” was even bigger than mine because of his connections and his family, was now the ninth wealthiest man in the world. 

Life as Peter Francis’s daughter, life as Kash Colello’s girlfriend, was a whole lot different than life had been as Bailey Hayes. There were rules and expectations and lots and lots of people watching you. 

So no, I was not okay.

Release + Review - The Plan - Karla Sorensen





 Have you ever fake dated your bodyguard? I don't recommend it. 


Especially if he's anything like Erik Wilder: former football player, world class know-it-all and unapologetic grump. 


To be clear, I didn't want a bodyguard (hence the fake dating idea). Most days, I can’t figure out why he wants the job either. We drive each other insane, probably because we’re as opposite as two people can be. 


He’s suspicious, never talks about his past and has the comfort skills of a cactus. I’m a happily ever after kinda girl who knows exactly what she wants out of life. 


Erik’s words might say that the lines have to stay firm between us, but those dark eyes of his? They tell another story when he looks at me. 


He’s just as stubborn as I am, but when our fake dating plan starts to feel a lot more real, it's only a matter of time before his professional walls come crashing down. 


I just have to hope my heart doesn't get buried in the rubble.


Johnaka's Review

“Opposites attract and age-gap, 5 stars”

I love Sorensen. I don’t think there is a book of hers that I don’t like. With The Plan though, she hit two of my favorite tropes, opposites attract and age gap. Now for those of you who are crinkling your nose at age-gap, stop. It’s a small one. I adored Erik Wilder. He’s quiet, broody, and maybe a little grumpy. Lydia is a people person and a planner. When she knows what she wants, she goes for it and I love that.

Lydia’s life changed when she was in a car accident. To get her out of the house and make her feel safe, her parents (From the Bombshell Effect) hire her a driver/bodyguard. She wants absolutely nothing to do with it but goes along with it. Sparks fly, clothes come off, and love happens. Only it’s never that easy, is it? Just read the story and fall in love with these two. And if you haven’t start with The Bombshell Effect and work your way down to this one. You won’t regret reading this world.

Plot-5/5

Meet Karla Sorensen:

Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone's face, then I've done my job.  I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

Release + Review - Ruin - Caitlyn Dare





 A new dark romance from the bestselling author of the Savage Falls MC series.


My whole life I’ve been treated like some innocent na├»ve girl. Shielded from the dark and dangerous world my big brother inhabits.

But not any longer.

Now, Savage Falls is my home, the Sinners MC, my family. I’m the new club princess, a burden I neither want nor need.

Because I’m not as innocent as they all think. 

Not by a long shot.

Not when I spend most of my days dreaming of them. Club prospect Jax Pitman, my best friend’s older brother Diesel Walker, and the Red Ridge Chapter’s newest bad boy Zach Stone.

One of them broke my heart.

One refuses to fix it.

And one of them is slowly bringing me back to life.

But together… 

Together, they might just ruin me.


RUIN is a full length dark enemies-to-lovers/bully romance. This is a why choose novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. It is book one in the series.


Louise's Review

Ruin is book 1 in the new Red Ridge Sinners MC Series, oh my gosh!!! it has everything you would expect from Caitlyn Dare and more! Adulting is thrown out the window you wont want to stop once you start!

River needed a fresh start and now that she is living closer to her brother and his MC family its now her's too. Getting her heart crushed not once but twice and hard to rebound from, especially when the feelings wont go away. Now there are 3 men in her life that she cant help but want she just needs to figure out how to handle that.

I personally loved this book, and i tell you that cliff hanger was mean!!! i need more NOW!!! I am hanging out for REAP, i need answers pronto!!
