The first time I saw Major Cade Jameson his pants were around his ankles. Taught, smooth glutes pushed over snug boxer briefs that gloriously enhanced every inch of the hard-earned muscles peeking out from under them. Those perfect glutes called to me like a siren, beckoning for me to come forward and, “squeeze here.” But I’m getting ahead myself. To tell this story right, ...more

Release: September 17, 2018
My name is Brecklyn Brannon, and I’m not who I claim to be.
A year ago, I packed up my promising life in the city for a man I saw only once.
Accepting a temporary job with Cade and four blazing hot veterans should have been my way in.
Except, Cade acts like he would rather be tortured than speak to me.
He can resist all he wants, but I made a promise that I intend to keep.
Even if it costs me everything.

Major Jameson is going to dehydrate my lady parts with that broody look and sexy voice.

I cannot tell a lie... I've loved Major Cade Jameson since his first introduction in Commander in Briefs. Between him and Theo, I wasn't sure who 'commanded' more of my attention. So color me thrilled when I found out that the Major would be getting his own story.

Cade was a war veteran suffering from PTSD after losing his entire unit. He hasn't figured out how to grieve much less how to move on and to say

Kristy Marie I am going to start with you my dear are a total ROCKSTAR. Gorgeous was all that I hoped for and more. I absolutely loved the first book in the series Commander in Briefs, as it was a huge five star read and in turn making me forever and ever #teamtheo, however after totally devouring Gorgeous let's just say I am suffering with a huge #majorcrush. The magic that Kristy has weaved with her words to bring us Cade and Breck's story will make you laugh, break your heart, cry a river and ...more

Had to stop myself from crying on the tour bus, just an FYI. This book always hits me right in the feels.

Just, yes.

Kristy Marie does it again, making me all emotional and just astounding me with quality writing and drama-galore.

Our main characters, Brecklyn "Breck" Brannon and Cade "Major" Jameson, are bloody perfect. I don't know how it happened but they just – they compliment each other so well, and even though Cade was an idiot (a theme I'm sensing with the main men

So, of course before I start my review, I have to say thank you to my girl Kristy.  I was given the awesome opportunity to ARC read my favorite guy and MAJOR crush Cade, in exchange for an honest review, and I didn’t even have to think twice.  I’ve said it plenty to her and I will keep saying it, I am so proud of you love.  You have completely blown me away with your ability to blow me away.  With your words, your creativity, your visuality, I am always awestruck by your work.  You can do no wro ...more

And to think you'd not fall for Cade ! Kristy has once again done a fabulous job with Gorgeous! I don't even know where to start. I was flipping pages with delight one page at a time. I have the biggest book hangover ever !
There's so much testosterone and marshmallow and bonfire. Not only will Cade melt your panties with his brooding mood and love for B, but you're bound to fall for other characters namely Vincent (Dibs on that sexy guy!) Also the constant struggle between the OLD vs. NEW Cade

I loves this!
I have never read anything by Kristy, but this sounded like a good one. I just purchased the first book in the series, I'm about to dive in!
This story was heartbreaking, very serious at times, but also had me laughing out loud.
I'm a sucker for a broody, alpha male. Cade is just that and then some. Broken from his past, believing he deserves nothing. Breck disagrees. She sees him for the hero he is and is determined to make him see he's worthy of love and affection.

"Not much gets under my skin ... except this girl. My jelly girl. The brunette that annoys me and intrigues me."

Gorgeous is everything I didn't expect it to be. It got under my skin and easily found it's way to my heart. This is the perfect story for Cade, I couldn't have wished for another story and another more fitting heroine than Breck.

"This woman is my kryptonite. The jelly to my peanut butter."

Cade and Breck were perfect for each other right from the beginning. It's the perfect chemistry a

What a fantastic follow up from Commander in Briefs (which I thought was an amazing debut novel). I fell in love with the Commander’s boys in Book 1 and Book 2 Gorgeous was everything I had been not so patiently waiting for and more. Gorgeous completely captivated me, it was a struggle to put down and I absolutely loved every moment, paragraph, page and chapter of this sexy and thoroughly engrossing read. I can’t wait

Manwhore hero. Reformed, but we still experience his whorish ways
Heroine might as well be a virgin
Hero is an asshole and treats her like crap

Brecklyn Bennett, a culinary student, is on a mission to find the hero her brother, Brannon, had the privilege of serving for in the marines before he was killed in action. Besides her best friends Jess and Milo, Brannon was the only family she had, and she felt it would have been something Brannon would have done, to make sure his commander was okay after what happened. She happens to see a picture of his hero, now homeless, in the paper, and she knows she must find him to help him. She leaves ...more

I was given an advanced readers copy of this book and have decided to leave a voluntary honest review. I first need to say that I waited for this book to come out on pins and needles. Cade had me from the very start. You know sometimes when you connect with charcter well Cade is just that for me. This man is everything any girl could ever ask or want. Yes he has to deal with PTSD and no that's not easy. But the man is a true hero in my eyes. And God his mouth will have you panting in no time at ...more

[I received a digital ARC for an honest review]

Gorgeous by Kristy Marie is the second book in the Commander and Brief series. It can technically be read as a standalone but I am glad I read the first because I was already attached to these characters especially Cade which made this book really emotional.

Breck is absolutely adorable and I love her character so much. She loves to cook and is a super hero nerd who writes reviews in her down time. She's sweet, kind and always looks for the best in p

Amazingly exceptional doesn’t even feel enough to describe this book.

I have so many feelings for this book I’m not sure I’m even gonna be able to put them down not words and deliver you a not-sappy-at-all review!

So let’s start from the beginning, shall we??

We met Cade in Commander in Briefs (number one in this series) and I guess we all fell in love with his broken soul, he’s moody, broody, occasionally an asshole but he’s also sweet and protective. We were aware from the first pages of ‘Gorgeou

I still remember the day I first started reading Commander in Briefs and was instantly hooked on Kristy Marie's distinctive writing style and unconventional characters. It was love at first sight and that love has only grown and flourished even more with Gorgeous.

Cade and Breck's story made me an emotional mess. It was intense, heartbreaking, addictive. But also hopeful, sweet and passionate. It was unique and heart-warming, with a fair amount of the thing I like best about Kristy Marie's writi

Another enjoyable read. I love thAt Kristy Marie has her own signature humor. This family by choice is hilarious, and I really love them.

Cade and Brek are great. I love their chemistry, and they had a ton of swoon worthy moments. And now that I have read more all the books, can this woman write a bedroom scene. Lord 🔥

I will say that, for me, the pacing was off. A lot of build up and the the climax, falling action, and resolution happen very fast. Too fast.

I’m still
5 stars!

Wow! I honestly don't even know where to start. This was so good from beginning to the end! I actually think I liked this better than the 1st book! I'm crushing so hard on Cade right now. ;)

Beautiful read! Highly recommend!

5 stars? It actually deserves more than that.
I just finished this tear jerking novel about Cade a PTSD ex commander and a woman named Breck who was the sister of a soldier named Brennon who was commanded by Cade. Breck decides she wants to help her brother's used to be commander who her brother looked up to. So without spoiling it, I leave you with a short summary and say this book changed my view of soldiers with PTSD and they can still lead normal happy lives. Sidenote: the secondary character

Gorgeous is the second, stand-alone book in Kristy Marie’s Commander in Briefs series. I haven’t read the first book, but I am going to download it as soon as I can because I really enjoyed Gorgeous. It’s fresh, funny, steamy and emotional with a sassy heroine and a grumpy, sexy hero.

Your heart hurts for Breck and Cade, because they have both lost people dear to them and are still deeply affected by their passing, especially Cade. Breck is intent on helping him, but he’s resistant to anything s

"The tree is my body. The roots are my family. The phoenix, my rebirth, burning away the demons that haunt my soul. I’m starting over. I’m rising from the ashes. I’m letting go. And I’m going to make all of them proud."

I fell in love with Cade in Commander, and after finally reading his story, I can say that I love him even more now.

I'm happy that Cade had his HEA, especially after all the things he had to endure, to finally let the guilt go over his past in the military and to be with the woma

Ho-ly cookies and jelly, I'm floored.
I´ve been waiting for this book for 10 months now and I was still not prepared for this.
She did it again. And five stars don't ever begin to cover it.

Kristy Marie was able to do something that not everyone can achieve, at least not for me, and definitely not with this intensity: she created a world that I would give anything to live in.

Kristy Marie is an author that sure knows how to get you sucked into a book. I’ve had my precious Gorgeous waiting for me and after I finally started reading it I COULD NOT STOP! I devoured this gem in just a few hours and god it was so much more perfect than I imagined ♥️

I’ve been patiently waiting for Cade Jameson’s book since Commander in Briefs. And even than his character captured me. This book picks up not long after and we finally get more of Cade and that girl he saw at the market.

"'I like the idea of hope,' I confess quietly. 'That when all feels lost, someone is out there for you, waiting to pick up and fight your wars.'"

Oh my... first, let's please talk about this cover? Because it's absolutely breathtaking. It fitted just right with Cade's story.
Anyway... After reading the first book in the series, I fell in love with the characters and let me tell you, you will too, there's no stopping the love you'll feel about these men. Anniston continues to be a badass and on

The only thing I need right now after reading this book is that I need to be held, possibly by Cade and his strong arms.

Gorgeous by Kristy Marie is one knockout of a book. It will play with every emotion that your body can muster. It's a chockfull of emotion - a roller-coaster load, really. This book literally takes your breath away, and your heart gets completely swept away with Cade and Breck's story.

From the moment I started Gorgeous, I knew that it was going to be intense. Cade had a story

Wow. What a ride. Gorgeous is the second book in the Commander in Briefs series and boy did it surpass anything I thought was possible. I knew there was more to Cade to uncover than what we already knew. I didn't expect to be so emotional while reading this story. The revelations that were unraveled had me anticipating what would happen next.

Ever since Cade was introduced in the first book I needed his story so bad. He intrigued me so

I stumbled across the first book in this series last year when I was scrolling in Facebook land, and I confess, the cover of Commander In Briefs (Book1) wholeheartedly caught my attention, but when I read the blurb? That was it. I WANTED that story. But with Gorgeous, it was worse, I didn’t just want it. I NEEDED IT!!!! Like an addiction in my soul, and thank goodness Kristy finally finished writing it and put me and everyone else out of our misery.
