I loved Mia in January, her connection with Wes was hot and beautiful, even with Mia's current job. However, February didn't connect with me as well.
I think because I loved Mia and Wes so much, it was hard to see her switch that off so fast. However, as Mia interacted with Alec, I began to love them together. Alec was beautiful inside and out. I think the creative side of myself got the whole 'muse' thing and I loved their relationship, especially the artwork piece names.
Another great story from Audrey, I really love her writing style and can't wait yo move onto book 3, March. Reading at present is really helping take my mind off of a really tough time in my life. 4 stars....more
I really enjoyed this book. It was the first book I'd read by Audrey the author and it really kept me glued to the spot. I read this in 1 sitting andI really enjoyed this book. It was the first book I'd read by Audrey the author and it really kept me glued to the spot. I read this in 1 sitting and struggled to put it down.
Mia is a good character. Her hands are forced working as a call girl for her aunt to pay off her fathers debt. Her client for January is Wes and the chemistry is almost instant. I loved that although at times the story reminded me of a Pretty Woman sequel story Mia really wasn't a Julia Roberts. Mia is her own person, with needs but also is so down to earth it's hard not to like her. I loved Wes instantly as he was as down to earth as Mia yet obviously bought up in a rich environment.
I loved their connection and interactions. I especially loved the family brunch which I felt was really well written. Looking forward to reading more if thus series and super glad the first 4 books are part of Kindle Unlimited! A solid 4.5 stars!...more

I'm open minded and think these books are fun, this is a quick, dirty read and I agree with Vincent, thus COULD be a great pre bedtime reading if you are into this kinda thing. I've read about Daddy's before so this isn't new to me and thought that Vincent hit the nail on the head with the chemistry and dirt. 4 stars, I look forward to a full length book!...more
I didn't enjoy Ellie and Kaynes story as much in this second part of these books. I think with the first book although there was a lot of sexual contaI didn't enjoy Ellie and Kaynes story as much in this second part of these books. I think with the first book although there was a lot of sexual contact, there was also the underlying storyline. In Claimed the majority of the book was sexual contact and not much else. I guess I needed more in honesty. I'm not saying this is a bad story at all. I did give it 4 stars and it's as hot and captivating as Owned was, just not as enticing and fulfilling.
I did love the ending though, especially the things with Jett and also the history we learnt on Kayne.
4 stars, not for the faint hearted when it comes to se. And dominance....more
When I saw the reviews of Dirty Bad Wrong I honestly thought, 'Nah, it can't be that bad, can it?' I have an exceptionally open mind and have read somWhen I saw the reviews of Dirty Bad Wrong I honestly thought, 'Nah, it can't be that bad, can it?' I have an exceptionally open mind and have read some really dark, bdsm type books. So I do feel I, pretty open minded. Hmm.. Ok this book was an eye opener I'll give it that. What I liked even more was that it was well written. This is smut, porn, straight up dirty bad wrong. But yet it's not cheesy, it was honest I felt and besides everything else it had a story. A connection of 4 soles I like to think, or personas may be the better way of putting it.
I read this over the course of 1 afternoon/evening and I could not put it down. Yes it made me gasp (I don't think ANY book has EVER done that!), made me squirm and the whole drinking water thing (You'll know it when you read it) is best not read just after you've consumed dinner!
But I really loved this book and I would recommend it if you do not offend easily, can tolerate a dirty bdsm book which is a little hardcore and quite detailed. I will leave this review with saying one last thing, I loved that it was set in London too! 4 well deserved stars!...more

It's a unique relationship and I'm kind of gutted I worked out half way through what was going on. I'm not surprised by the outcome and of course can't wait yo read what happens next to Kayne and his kitten - 4 stars, if you are of a sensitive disposition I'd recommend not reading this....more
3.5 stars. This book for me felt like it was trying too hard. Without giving spoilers there's was just too much going against them and it felt like th3.5 stars. This book for me felt like it was trying too hard. Without giving spoilers there's was just too much going against them and it felt like the author was trying to cram too much in.
The book was well written though, I did like the characters and at times as much as Addison wound me up with her whole martyr outlook, I appreciated she was honest too. I think in a while Wilder is the first male in a book I've read that I didn't love or find sexy. I just found him a bit blah and not too my taste at all.
Still a solid 3.5 read, read in 2 sittings....more

Tool was the second book in the Stepbrother Romance series, these are stand alone a too so no cliffhangers - win win!
This story is about Gaige and Delaney and it as as fun, if not more so than 'Prick'. I loved the action, romance, sex and mostly the banter between the characters. Another great fun book, I really enjoyed it - 4 stars....more

I enjoyed High and thought it was good, but Higher was so much better!So I read Higher (Book 2 in the Indigo Lounge series) by Zara Cox in 1 sitting. I enjoyed High and thought it was good, but Higher was so much better! I felt in High we didn't really get to know Bethany as well and I felt a little indifferent towards her, however in Higher I liked her a lot more.
Zach is still hot, hot, hot and well, a bit HOTTER. If you like an alpha man then he will be your new favourite book boy friend. I found him a tad more over powering in Higher, however he is super hot, rich and sex with him sounds like its off the planet - so all is forgiven.
I don't like to give spoilers as you know with my reviews, but I will say that the adventure with Higher was better than High, I felt this was faster paced, there were more emotions and over all, I preferred this a lot more to High! This is definitely a series to keep an eye on, its just a shame its done in such short novellas. I would prefer to read this as a whole in 1 go, but c'est la vie - we can't have everything!
4 stars and another hot read from the lovely Zara Cox, looking forward to reading the 3rd instalment now!
The List is the first book I've read by the author Kate L Mary. I liked the look of the synopsis, so thought I'd request it on NG, after all I do likeThe List is the first book I've read by the author Kate L Mary. I liked the look of the synopsis, so thought I'd request it on NG, after all I do like a good old new adult romance.
Listing what I didn't like about this book is probably quicker than what I did like. In honesty I had very few issues with it. I liked the writing style. I liked that Annie is naive but the author didn't make her sound like she was 13 which is often the case with these new adult books. The story has good pace, there's a great group of friends who are all different and I felt connected to all of them. I felt there was true emotion in The List too. I really felt Annie's turmoil when it came to her family and upbringing. Although she was so sheltered in many ways she was exceptionally grown up too. The connection with Ryan and Chris was really great too.Nothing like a love triangle although you could see from the get go where this was going to head.
So, are you wondering what my issue was? Well, it was with Chris and towards the end. I really don't like to give spoilers and its something I avoid with my reviews. But it felt like he after him being such a main player in the story it was forgotten about at times.
The List was a great read and would make a perfect Summer vacation book list. Its sweet, loving, beautiful and honest and I loved the connections. Cami was the perfect room mate and I'm sure you will find her fun to read about too, especially when we get the second book. The List has no cliff hanger, can be read as a stand alone and a HEA - 4 stars.
Firstly if you follow my reviews you'll know I'm not a fan of novellas, however as this was a prequel (I'd already put my name down for an ARC of CheaFirstly if you follow my reviews you'll know I'm not a fan of novellas, however as this was a prequel (I'd already put my name down for an ARC of Cheaters Anonymous and was hoping that I'd be accepted - I was!) I thought I'd give it a go.
For a short story I found it was exceptionally well written. There was enough detail without going overboard, action, an insight into the characters and a good climax (Literally as the case was). It also gave me a glimpse into a Scar and Julia which has now made me want to read the next book even more (Luckily it's now in my kindle!).
I gave this book 4 stars, it's a quick read, fun, sexy and definitely kept my interest!...more
I feel like I'm totally new to the Lacey Silks bandwagon, Cheaters Anonymous was the second book I'd read by her and only because it recommended readiI feel like I'm totally new to the Lacey Silks bandwagon, Cheaters Anonymous was the second book I'd read by her and only because it recommended reading 'When Things Go Wrong' a short novella prequel before it.I read the books back to back and was so excited to start Cheaters Anonymous that I literally almost peed my pants (As Juliet Roberts once famously said).
The cover of this book just had me hooked. It looked so bad (No not bad terrible), so naughty almost that it had me intrigued. It was like that big red button I shouldn't press. However, when I started reading this book I was really surprised, it wasn't what I was expecting at all.
There is so much more to Jules and Scar than I can really write in this review (Not unless you want me to give away spoilers etc, which I just don't do). Its a unique story, I've never read a book on a female sex addict and found Jules really interesting to read about. I loved how she permanently had to second guess her feelings because of her previous addiction, it made for a great read. I don't feel I'm giving a lot away telling you that about her, you soon learn it in the first 2 chapters. However, what comes after that was what blew me away a little.
I was honestly expecting the usual New adult erotica shit and I feel I should apologise now to Lacey Silks for making that assumption on her work. This book is detailed, its a story that grows into something really good. There's mystery with a good underlying thriller part too. I loved Scars family and felt they deserved their whole own series, especially his parents! I loved the settings, the ideas, I just loved everything about this book.
If you want me to nit pick, I will say the climax scene towards the end was a little bit quick, that would have been cooler if it were elaborated on, but that's it. Cheaters Anonymous was a great book and one I really recommend. I will say that by reading When Things Go Wrong first you would get a better ideas of the history 6 years before, but in honesty its the background of when they were at school which is more important and that's covered in this book - 4 solid stars!

I read it in one sitting and at times could relate to stuff. I know the laws change brought it the world. When I was 16 I dated and got engaged to someone 8 years my senior. Making it very similar to Blair and Caiden's story. As I was over 16 (the age of sexual consent in the UK) what we did was not against the law. The differences in that relationship and that of the couple in this book shared similarities in that I do know what it's like to be with someone older, to be beyond my years and to face what people say about it (Cradle snatcher, gold digger, sugar daddy... You get the gist). I thought the relationship side of this book was written well. I liked that it's told from both Blair and Caiden's points of view.
I felt though as the story progressed it lacked in places. It wasn't gripping and could have been. Some parts (Nate) were almost glossed over where they could have been made more serious and prominent. I felt we didn't really get enough seems to show the closeness of Marcus and Blair either.
Over all this isn't a bad book, it's written ok and the story has a nice ending, I just felt it fell a bit flat in places and I guess I wanted more - 3 stars....more
Paradise City was a book I'd put off of reading for a little while. Its been sitting on my kindle a good week and when I have books to review althoughParadise City was a book I'd put off of reading for a little while. Its been sitting on my kindle a good week and when I have books to review although I batch write my reviews generally they are all read within a week of getting them. However, when I finished this book last night I was left wondering, 'Why the hell did I take so long to get around to reading it?!'
Paradise City is the first book in the Paradise series by C.J Duggan. This is the second or third book I've read that's based in Australia and unlike the others, although there are some references to things I had to look up I'd no idea what they are (As I'm UK based), I found this book a really easy read. In fact, it wasn't just easy to to the language barrier, but also the fact it was such a great story.
Initially when I started this it was a little slow. Until Lexie makes it to Paradise it is a bit of a drag. However, once she starts at school things heat up straight away. I loved the things I thought I would predict didn't happen. Lexie although having always been home schooled soon learns how to act at her new school. She grows a back bone and I liked that about her. I liked that she didn't back down, was out going and fun. I will also say that I wish she took off her rose tinted specs for 5 seconds and really took a good look at Amanda, as that girl has 'using bitch' written all over her. Even when I got to the end of the book I still didn't like Amanda and I can't see my feelings changing on that front either.
Ballantine, or Luke as I'm going to reference him as now as that is his first name after all is a great character. At first I thought he was going to just be this bad boy surfer who was a bit of a player. However, as the book progressed he really warmed my heart, especially the scene with his mum about the film and drinks, it was the 'Aww Mum' or something like that - just made me chuckle.
The story did have great pace once it started, I loved the additional characters and chemistry there especially Boon and Laura. I didn't especially like the cliffhanger, didn't like that the next book isn't available until September (September, really?!), but I did love the story and for that I'm highly recommending it. I would say this is suitable for mature teens but with the sexual aspect I'm not sure. However, Lexi is a pretty good kid so maybe it would be ok for those who are 17+. Either way, a great new adult book and a great start to a new series! 4 stars!

I wanted to love it, it seemed like my cup of tea and what with some really great reviews I was excited to try this series. But I struggled, I wasn't gripped,my attention wandered. I almost gave up, in fact at times this book felt more of a chore for me.
I loved Deacon, he's a great character but taken aside his hotness, the fact his tattooed (I do love a tat or few) and he was 'giving' when it came down to things, it just wasn't enough for me. Harper from the get go grated me a little. We were constantly reminded of her upbringing on the road, the family ties to being a roadie etc and how she loved being out in the road as a chef - yet at times she had this 'I'm better than you' outlook and would go completely out of character and then be the opposite. She just didn't sit with me well at all.
I loved the other band members and if this book had been about Jazz or Simon (Not together but about one of their points of view) I know I'd have liked it more.
This book barely made a 3 stars for me. Not because it wasn't well written, just because I couldn't connect with the main characters....more

Sometimes you need something with that HEA and thus book does get there in theRead in 1 sitting this book for me was a whole bunch of nice and sweet. Sometimes you need something with that HEA and thus book does get there in the end.
At times it was predictable which is why I did give this 4 stars but it only just got those. I found Emma quite likeable from the get go as she was down to earth and level headed. Although the situation and 'agreement' is something if fiction I liked how the story panned out and the connection between Emma and Max. Max played his part well in this book, there was the right amount if cocky/sexy to sweet and good - meaning he came across as a real character and not unrealistic.
The back end of this book was a little inconsistent with details, I'm not going to go into what as that would release spoilers and I don't ever do that in my reviews but the 'timing/dates' didn't add up at all. Maybe I'm being picky? Either way it seemed a silly mistake.
I've been wanting to read this since I added it to my reading like. I love a bit of romance with feel good thrown in and I had a feeling 10 Years LateI've been wanting to read this since I added it to my reading like. I love a bit of romance with feel good thrown in and I had a feeling 10 Years Later would be the perfect read. The Story of Cammie and Dalton flips back and forth in time and is told from both characters points of view. I found they both came across as sweet, honest characters - not too wish washy that you felt sickened by their story, but also there wasn't a lot of action either. I think that was my issue - I wanted more action.
Dalton has a really interesting job and I guess I'd liked to have known more about the 'now' Dalton than the then, the same dan also be said about Cammie. Also there's such a big warm up for the reunion that I was gutted it was over so quickly, I guess I wanted it more prominent in the story.
Still 10 Years Later is a sweet read with a HEA and good feelings too. It reads like a film and I do recommend it even though I only gave it 3.5 stars - I just wanted more, especially when I read this in one sitting....more
High (Book #1 in the Indigo Lounge) series by Zara Cox was the first book I'd read by this author. Initially the synopsis sounded really intriguing, aHigh (Book #1 in the Indigo Lounge) series by Zara Cox was the first book I'd read by this author. Initially the synopsis sounded really intriguing, an exclusive flight fulfilling your fantasies in the sky - sounds amazing right? Well, this is the disappointed part of my review. The flight was, well, about a tenth of the book if that? In fact the build up to Bethany getting on the flight was longer. I was really hoping for more intrigue and the ins and outs of the flight its self. Especially even knowing this book was about Bethany and Zach, that hot guy from the band, now that would have been an interesting avenue to follow. I almost felt a little let down with this area of the book. Yes I gave High 4 stars but that was for other things, let me explain.
I loved the descriptions of this book. Unlike some which can go ott, Zara Cox painted a picture of all the destinations. I felt like I was there. It wasn't too much, it was just right and I loved that. She also knew how to not give you details where stuff was irrelevant (The clothing etc was described, but not shoved in your face).
I liked Bethany as a character but didn't relate to her either. For someone who is portrayed as strong etc, the whole thing with her ex made me wonder why she took it the way she did. If she was that strong she would have known it was him, not her. She seemed like an ok girl though, she could be funny and speak her mind which I liked and the sexual chemistry with Zach was good.
I liked Zach, yes hes a hot billionaire (What's not to like), but also felt he was a little too hot and cold for my liking. Somehow hough Zara seemed to play this off as intrigue and made you want to know more about his past and the mystery there.
Over all High wasn't a bad book at all, its a quick read with a cliff hanger (Which really wasn't that surprising) and the characters have great chemistry. You kind of want to scream at them at times for what is clearly in front of their faces and how do they not see things, but alas most books are like that. The sex is hot, the foreplay hotter. High got 4 stars from me, it was barely a 4 though I will admit, but a great start the the relationship of Bethany and Zach and shortly I'll be reading Higher to see where that takes me.
