New Review! Miss (Bittersweet Heat #2) by Harloe Rae 4.5 Cranky Stars

Miss (#BitterSweetHeat, #2)Miss by Harloe Rae
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Cranky Stars


I was rooting for these two from the very beginning. A big bear of a guy who doesn’t think he’s good enough for the girl who has so much love to give. They made sense until life forced them apart. Now they are just existing in two very different lives.


Delilah has a good life but her heart is still in pieces. She once gave it to a boy she loved who left her with promises to come back for her. 5 years has come and gone and she is just living the day to day. She has Jitters and her best friend Raven. The last thing she expects is Zeke to come back into town and her heart to forgive him so quickly.


Zeke left with visions of Delilah in his mirror. He thinks he isn’t good enough for her and tries so hard to be better but life keeps knocking him down. When a job has him breezing back into town he tries to avoid her at all cost. He finally takes a big step and it’s the start of something good or so he hopes.


I really liked Delilah in Gent. She has a spark and you can’t help but being drawn to her. Zeke broke my heart many times. He is so misunderstood. This book has a lot of heart and chemistry. I actually love how they made the pages sizzle but at the same time you go awwww. I can’t wait for more!!

The mouth on Trey is naughty naughty!! In the bedroom and out. I guess I could say there wasn’t a bedroom till much later but you get my drift.


Trey is closed off and it’s the standard I have lost so if I don’t let anyone close I can’t lose again. Raven pushes all his buttons. She sees past his walls and knocks down every single one until she is holding his heart in her hands without him knowing.


Raven is my kind of girl. She knows everyone has a story and everyone has a reason why they are the way the are. She keeps up with Trey and his attitude. She doesn’t expect him to blow her mind at every single turn. She just hopes that maybe just maybe he will let her be the one. She’s starting a new life in Garden Grove with her best friend and she just wants to be his friend but is his wall worth scaling?


While this is a troupe done before Raven and Trey are different. I firmly believe there is someone for everyone out there. Someone willing to scale the walls and tame your beasts. Raven is that for Trey. They explore a lot of firsts together. They are steamy and their chemistry just jumped out at me. A friend raved about Harloe Rae and I must say I’m now a fan. I can’t wait to pick up the next book in this fun series.

New Review! Suit (44 Chapters #4) by BB Easton 5 Cranky Stars

Suit (44 Chapters, #4)Suit by B.B. Easton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mothereffing Ken!! I feel like I’ve waited a very long time for this moment. I noticed so many similarities between my husband and Ken. It’s like looking into my life except I never went full punk or dated any one remotely close to Ronald McKnight but boy did I have some winners.


BB is still fresh off the breakup with Hans and just existing. Searching for the next step in her life something to fill the void because that’s who Brooke is. She doesn’t think her friendship with Ken will become anything more because let’s be honest he wears a tie to every event and doesn’t even drink meanwhile BB is all anarchy and booze. When the relationship progresses, she struggles with how to deal with someone like Ken when its nothing she’s every dealt with before. Ken lets her lead and he asks for her opinions on things makes her feel like she matters. Things weren’t all sunshine and roses for BB and Ken though she is still struggling to shake Knight and not jump at every motorcycle sound.


Kenneth Easton is a coupon clipping, budgeting, credit card with perfect interest, stock investing ninja. He might not express his emotions in the conventional way, but he shows in actions and to me that’s important.


I have been waiting for this moment since 44 Chapters. I noticed how much Ken and my version of Ken are a lot alike. We get to see a side of BB that we only knew the surface of and her story towards the end broke my heart. I was glad she figured herself out for the most part even though we are all continuous works in progress. BB and Ken are the classic case of opposites attract and it works for them. This book made me laugh out loud and then cry then laugh again.


I adore BB Easton and her candid honesty even if so much of the book is made up its still real. I wish BB, Ken, Mini Ken and Baby BB all the happiness in the world. I wonder what will be next?

New Review! With Every Breath (River Bend #1) by Niecey Roy 4 Cranky Stars

With Every Breath (River Bend, #1)With Every Breath by Niecey Roy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars


Unfortunately I read the second book first, so I knew what happened!!!


Even so it is an enjoyable and fun read. Jaden comes back to town after swearing she would never return, but her friend needs her, Mia. Jaden and Cole (Mia's brother) had a fling before she left. Cole got at girl pregnant and did the right thing and married her, but now they are near the end of the divorce when Jaden arrives. The whole town seems to have their own part to play.


Some characters are just so funny. Full of misunderstanding and innuendos. Will Jaden and Cole rekindle their relationship??? Predictable but a good read.

New Review! One Wild Ride (Hollywood Chronicles #2) by A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shae 4.5 Cranky Stars

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We’ve all heard the saying I’d tap that, or I’d hit that. Elle Ward took that way too literally when she hit Kassius on his motorcycle. In her defense she was too busy staring at a billboard of chiseled abs and drool worthy face when she backed into the mystery man. When his helmet comes off she realizes who that handsome face belongs to. The man on the ground writhing in pain. Palm meet face.


Elle has been burned by a wanna be movie star using her to get his next big role. Her father is a famed director that everyone wants to know. Her heart is now tucked behind a very large concrete wall and a career that is all her own and she is just going through the motions. She has a tendency to zone out and when she hits a guy on a motorcycle she doesn’t expect it to be life changing. She struggles with him and old habits become hard to break.


Kassius is a male model with his face plastered on billboards and heck even the sides of buses yet he’s striving for more. He wants to make it on the big screen. When an accident lands him with a broken ankle he thinks the girl standing over him is an angel. He uses this to his advantage and really has no idea who Elle Ward is and falls for her. Her past issues meet his present opportunities will it be enough to keep her?


If you don’t love handsome swoon worthy guys with a big heart this book isn’t for you. If you don’t love a female lead who can make it on her own this isn’t for you. If instant love isn’t your thing this book isn’t for you. You’d be a fool to not take a chance on this story though. I’m a fan of A.L. Jackson and haven’t read anything yet by Rebecca Shae but I will now. The chemistry between Elle and Kas is off the charts. All the alluding to the big bang is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat.


Kas is a book boyfriend for the ages. I mean sexy abs and a heart of gold? Yes please. I will admit at times Elle annoyed me, but I got why she was so guarded. This was book two in this series, but I didn’t even know till I was finished. I can’t wait to see where else this series goes or I hope it at least goes somewhere else.

New Review! Best Laid Plans L.K. Farlow 5 Cranky Stars

Best Laid PlansBest Laid Plans by L.K. Farlow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars


I’m sure we can all agree that our teenage selves made some pretty epically bad decisions. Things we thought were right and they came back to bite us in the butt later. Natalie did just that when it came to Alden. Their age difference and booze at play doesn’t make for wise choices but the heart wants what the heart wants at least according to Natalie.


Natalie had grand plans for her life none of them was being a mom much less a single one so soon. She feels she would ruin Aldens life if she told him and since he’s not around it’s ok. She keeps her secret tucked close to her heart not even telling her brother Nate who is Aldens best friend who the father is. When Alden comes breezing back into town to take over a local cafĂ© that she works at she must now confront her past head on. Alden has always had a soft spot for Natalie. He can’t believe the sexy girl at his job is the same Natalie from his teenage years. When she drops a bomb on him he reacts like anyone would . He works to put aside his anger and animosity to step up to his newfound role as dad to one precious 3 year old named Tatum. He wants to do right by both his girls and he’s going to try very hard.


I really liked Natalie. She had a hard choice to make and I felt at the time she made the right one. Alden is a good book boyfriend he steps right up and becomes the greatest dad. Their chemistry leaps off the page.


There is a great supporting cast in this story and I hope to see Nates story. I’m pretty certain I would love anything L.K. Farlow writes. She writes such real life stories with heart and a hero who would make your heart skip a beat.

There's only a few things that can bring a self proclaimed playboy to its knees and Emmie is running a close second to.... a baby.


His strung out sisters baby.

His niece and she is sick.

Stone's only option is to get Dr.Feelgood herself to help baby Maddie out.


This story was adorable. The characters were fun and relatable and I love seeing a playboy brought to his knees. The only thing that bugged me is that it could use another edit. Other than that I would love to read more from this author.
