POOR BABY JUST WANTED AFFECTION SO HE PAYS A HOOKER TO PRETEND TO BE HIS MOM. That KILLED me. Poor thing. (hide spoiler)] Though I wasn't overly impressed by this book, I did enjoy it and I will be reading more of the series. I think what actually pissed me off was when Daisy, the heroine, finds out the Nick is an assassin she doesn't really get mad or anything-yeah she is scared and sort of freaked out but I didn't see/feel her emotion. I'd be snapping, no matter how much I loved the guy. I wouldn't ask self explanatory questions like "Why didn't you tell me you were a hitman?" WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT. Of course I'd forgive him...Because I am insane and Nikolai is worth going to bedlam for.["br"]>["br"]>...more

'Transcendence' by ShaOh-my-fucking-god! I love this book! I love this book! and in case you didn't get it the first two times: I LOVE THIS BOOK!
'Transcendence' by Shay Savage is a poignant, unique, heartwarming romance of enduring love. The book is told from the hero's prov-a first for me. I can't properly define how I feel about this book besides from I FUCKING LOVE IT. This book broke my heart-but in a good way(I didn't think it was possible but Shay Savage proved me wrong). I'm seriously pissed I didn't read this book sooner. WHY DID NO ONE RECOMMEND THIS TO ME?! I had to find it all by myself!(cough*jerks*cough). I've read a lot of really good books this year but 'Transcendence' tops them all and has made it's way on to my favorites shelve no questions asked. To say I couldn't put this book down is an understatement.
“I will provide for her. I will protect her. I will give her anything she wants.”
Ehd,the caveman,our hero, is the epitome of 'Alpha'. He is strong, clever, resourceful, gentle, sometimes forceful and all around amazing. He can be clueless at times, but can you blame him? His innocence makes me love him more. He reminds me a lot of Tarzan (and if that doesn't appeal to you, GTFO and leave my baby Ehd alone). When the book starts Ehd is all alone having lost his tribe and is barely surviving-is, in fact, on the brink of not wanting to live any more but that all changes the moment he finds Beh.
“She’s my mate, she’s unusual, and she is mine.”
Startled and confused by his beautiful mate, he doesn't understand the 'loud noises' she makes that often give him a headache. Regardless of barely understanding her and often thinking she is unusual, He swears to protect her, feed her and put a baby inside of her. It soon becomes apparent to Ehd that he couldn't doesn't want to live without her.
Shay Savage has done the unthinkable and made me want a caveman of my own. Thanks, Shay Savage, you have given me even more reason to be disappointed with the men around me.
Beh-Elizabeth has somehow been brought back in time to a prehistorical age and is terrified when she finds her self in a pit when a caveman with 'the most beautiful, bright green eyes' leans over the top and peers down at her. Gradually she begins to fall in love with Ehd. Ehd notices her strangeness-her clothes, hair, and make up are out of place to him but he doesn't care. Upon seeing her he decides she is his mate. For Ehd, Beh is a godsend.
“Beh-bet.” “Beth,” she repeats. I’ve had enough. I reach out and touch her shoulder. “Beh.” “Beth.” I tap her a little harder and growl. “Beh,” I repeat. I tap her again. “BEH!” Her eyes widen a bit, and she inhales sharply. A moment later, her shoulders drop and she sighs. “Beh,” she says quietly. I smile as I watch her hand reach out, and a single finger touches the center of my chest. More sounds from her mouth, but I know what she wants. She wants to know if I have a name-sound too. “Ehd!” I say proudly. After so much time on my own, I am lucky I even remember my name-sound. “Ehd?” “Ehd!” “Ehd,” she says as a small smile finally comes over her face. It is a beautiful sight, and my body almost tingles with excitement."
As the story progresses, they came to understand each other even without language(a couple of words here and there) by each others facial expressions and body language. How Shay Savage does this is beautiful. As time goes on Ehd and Beh fall in love and through the trials of life their love grows stronger.(view spoiler)[They even die together in their old age. I DIED, OKAY? I DIED. (hide spoiler)] The love scenes are pretty steamy and re-read worthy-the whole damn book is re-read worthy for fucks sake. “I wonder what I will do if she doesn't wake up, and I don't have an answer. As I lie back down next to her and pull her into my arms, my stomach growls, and suddenly I know exactly what I will do. If she doesn't wake up, then I will just lie with her until I don't wake up either.” A scene that almost killed me was when (view spoiler)[Beh get's hurt and Ehd doesn't know what to do and cries and UGH!!! Another scene that DID kill me was Ehd's final chapter (hide spoiler)]
Beh loves Ehd. Ehd Luffs Beh.
“I lean forward slowly and run the tip of my nose over hers again, starting at the tip and moving all the way up to the place between her eyes. I look at her again, and though I can still see her wariness in her eyes, she does not pull away from me.”
'Trancendence' is so fucking beautiful. I laughed, I cried and I want a sequel. Which is weird for me because I actually hate series and prefer stand alones but Shay Savage, I want more. The ending is just icing on the cake <3

The passIt's not often that I give a Harlequin or Mills and Boon book a 5 star rating but 'Untamed Italian, Blackmailed Innocent' just did it for me. The passion between the hero, Zac and the heroine, Sally was crazy hot-it vibrated off the pages. Sally is a women with her head on her shoulders and I loved that she kept to her priorities in a believable way(This seriously doesn't happen enough in books-But I felt it in this one.) Sally is strong and independent and I fucking loved every single moment of it. She was not for one second going to let anyone walk all over her. HARLEQUIN, TAKE NOTE PLEASE. I'D LIKE MORE HEROINE'S LIKE THIS IN YOUR BOOKS. Where the guy has to grovel or change his ways-YAS, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. I really loved that Sally was so resistant of Zac even though he is beautiful(She describes him as a Titan *can you hear my panties being thrown across the room?*) and he lusted after her from the get go. Though Zac's actions in the book are highly questionable, he knows he is being a dick-and he does 'let her go' but stays faithful to her the entire time they are separated.(For a guy with his libido and who is always sought after by women-that's pretty big and Sally even has a hard time believing he as celibate/remained faithful to her even though they broke up) Though this book did have a couple of faults(it wasn't long enough and it certainly had the potential to be, it felt a bit rushed towards the end which is sad because I feel that if the length of Harlequin books were allowed to be longer, Jacqueline Baird could have done it and made it all mesh together better than this final publishing)I could easily dismiss that because It was just such an enjoyable read-It's one of those books I didn't know I wanted/needed to read....more

Ultimately 'Lucky Penny' is about finding a place to belong,regardless of blood ties and loving people for what they are inside rather than outward appearance or where they come from. All in all, It was an incredibly sweet book. It's an easy read that gives you the warm and fuzzies by the time you finish it. Definitely worth a read if what you want is a story about family with an interesting plot.
One problem though, I found Catherine Anderson was often just repeating herself when it came to the backstory of Brianna. The reader's know what happened in her past and honestly I don't think i needed to read that part more than once but meh,if it helps the book go to the length she felt it should be then okay. But it just ended up annoying me and making me skim read.
If you want an honorable hero who wouldn't dream of hurting a woman than David Paxon is the hero for you, but besides his being handsome-He looks an awful lot like Brad Pitt in 'Legands Of The Fall'-and good man, it doesn't seem David does very much. Besides from loving his family, being adorbs as hell and being an all round good guy, He doesn't do much. I still like him though so that's okay.
David's relationship with Daphne is also one of the best things about the book-The title 'Lucky Penny' is really derived from their relationship. They both find a lucky penny at the same time, almost bump heads and David realizes when he sees her for the first time that she has to be his daughter. The resemblance to him and his mother is striking. Even when he finally realizes that Daphne, in fact, isn't his, he still loves her and wants to keep her as his daughter no matter what.
Brianna is a more fleshed out character, who is quite tortured and seems rather stiff when we first meet her-don't worry you'll find that out when you read it because you get to read about her past more than once. Brianna's been through a lot and blames herself a lot too. She puts her needs after her niece, Daphne's. Caring more about the child than she does for herself or anyone really. But eventually after we learn all about her past etc, Brianna starts loosing up a bit and just starts being herself which I really wanted for her more than anything. David is really the only person who has seen right through her and seen her for what she is: a feisty, hot tempered Irish woman. Another thing I love about this book is David's nickname for Brianna-Shamrock. ADORABLE. When ever he says it I just melt.

I loved all the characters in this book!(Except Gabe...fuck you, Gabe.) And HELL YEAH I WILL BE READING MORE IN THIS SERIES. How could I not? Hot men with tattoos and piercings-Yeah try and stop me from reading the rest of the series. Jay Crownover-I fucking love that there is a playlist at the end of the book. Yes, It is all that I wanted <3...more

'Playing For Keeps' is the first book in R.L. Mathewson's Neighbor From Hell series and it is funny as hell!
Steamy, witty and heartwarming, What's not to love about 'Playing for Keeps'? I can't tell you how many times this book has been recommended to me-alot. So, I finally decide to read it. Finished it in a couple of hours. I couldn't seem to put it down.
“It wasn’t like he was purposely being an asshole. It just came naturally to him.”
I loved how the hero, Jason was so crazy over Haley, the heroine who has been avoiding him for the five years since he moved in(just to avoid conflict, because he is a complete pain in the ass of a neighbor-seriously, he was spawned in the neighbor hell). I loved how he was almost feral in his love of food and of Haley. I adored seeing him change from his 'playboy' ways to being completely devoted to Haley that she became 'his world'. Jason is perfect to me, I wanted to bring him home with me.
“Stop calling me that!' Haley hissed softly. 'For the hundredth time, i am not the Daniel-Son to your Mr. Miyagi.”
Haley was adorable and funny. Having been a complete pushover for most of her life when ,after 5 years of living next door to Jason and putting up with his shit, he lays down in her tulip flowerbed, she decides she has had enough. This leads to a fucking awesome friendship and an even greater romance.
I loved Haley and Jason's relationship, they really meshed well together and had some really great scenes together. I was rooting for them through the whole book, just wanting them to get together.
'Playing for Keeps' is a hilarious and romantic ride from start to finish. If you're one of those reader's out there who loves a good laugh with their romance, I would definitely recommend this for you! ...more
