Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)




Roland's been in love with his best friend, J'Anique, for years. That's why it's distressing this New Year's Eve that he's trying to find the perfect hookup for her, and vice versa. It's their thing - finding each other the perfect hookup on New Year's Eve. But this year, Roland (and J'Anique??) is really not in the mood to find someone for his best friend, because she's already got the perfect mate - himself. Will he make his move? Is it possible J'Anique reciprocates his feelings?

Only For Tonight by Rachel Brookes

For this being a short read it was enough to hook me and have me craving more. I loved Chase and Rory! Their attraction was clear right from the start. They share a one-night-stand, but it’s clear that their connection is so much more. The passion between Chase and Rory is just addicting. I. Need. More. I can’t wait for more of their story.

Freckled by Leslie McAdam

It was such a wonderful short story. It was a one sitting read but it got me hooked. The characters were deep and their feelings were palpable.
It was beautifully written and in just a few pages, you can totally fell in love with both Roland and J'Anique.
They were so unique and vivid, so peculiar and full of life. I'm mesmerized with this author potential.
It doens't matter if it's a novel, a novella, a short story, you can bet you're gonna love whatever she writes and yo

I read Champagne Wishes by Shantel Tessier which is apart of the "Wild in the Windy City. VOLUME 3: NEW YEAR'S EVE Edition. This is Treyton and Cali's story. How they met, their chemistry, their attraction and the push/pull is intense and intriguing. I enjoyed the characters, plot and swoon-worthy moments in this short story. I liked the secondary characters added to round out the story. The novella ends on a " to be continued " note so I hope that it is soon. Treyton and Cali's story needs to b ...more

Freckled by Leslie McAdam shows off Leslie’s writing that I’ve missed so much. The story of two best friends who’ve loved each other forever and will decide their fate at the Navy Pier on NYE.

Roland and J’Anique are unique characters that feel so much, so deep for each other but neither have been brave enough to voice their feelings. This NYE everything will change and taking the jump made me swoon! Leslie knows how to spin a romantic short story with the perfect amount of back story to deliver

Freckled by Leslie McAdam

Freckled digs it's claws deep into the heart. Roland and J'Anique are friends that take emotions on a heartwarming voyage into their world of something more. McAdams masterfully crafts a tale of friendship, acceptance and romance that will make you smile, even as it breaks your heart. With a positive message and witty banter, Freckled finds it's beauty in being less than perfect.

As everyone knows, I am a sucker for anthologies. The downside of them is that I generally always want them to be more ad wish that the authors would continue them. Well, I am in luck with this particular anthology because most of them will be continuing in 2020. That makes me very happy considering that this collection of stories were all fantastic.

~ Review is for Celebrity Dirt by J.D. Hollyfield ~

***4 Stars***

There may have only been two chapters in here, but they definitely packed a punch. I can already tell that I’ll be #teamlogan for most of the book, though this isn’t the say that I won’t be giving Addy love, because she definitely deserves it, but this woman is definitely going to try me, but I can’t wait to see how what she is about to go through changes her.

Only for Tonight was a really short read, but it was just enough to have me hooked. I was enticed from the start by the clear attraction and easy banter between Chase and Rory! Both are so confident and don’t shy away from their desire from each other. They share a sexy one-night-stand, but also an evident connection that is just more!

We get another small insight into what is coming from the Black Hearts boys and seriously I cannot wait. I'm not going to tell you who Ruby is but she is going to shake things up for one band member I have a feeling trouble follows her around. A quick fun sexy novella that just leaves me panting for more.

Happy Blue Year
I love Ms. Suzanne’s books. This is a short book that introduces us to one of the members of the My Favorite Band Group, Kane. I think Kane is the most mature of the group, and he is in love with Sierra. I loved the prank he pulled on Sierra even though it may have backfired on him. I also thought Sierra’s parents were nice even though they had money. It’s a good short book that I strongly encourage you to read. I was given a co

Review for Ruby by L.A. Cotton

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

RUBY: A Black Hearts Still Beat short story is a captivating, albeit short read. We get a tease of Damon, one of the members of Black Hearts and his one hot night with his mystery red-headed girl, Ruby. This is a great introduction of what I'm sure is to come.

RUBY by L.A. Cotton is an EPIC read that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!

I read a few stories in this anthology. Here are my reviews

~Freckled by Leslie McAdams~

This was a sweet short story about two best friends who have loved each other forever but never did anything about it. I liked the little snippet we got of J'Anique and Roland. But I also felt that it was difficult to really get a feel for these two. We only get about an hour of their time where I think a few more would have helped. I love shorts but they make me want more. This one was no different.

I read Champagne Wishes by Shantel Tessier. I loved Treyton and Cali, they were a quick, fun, steamy read. Both of their nights started terrible but ended fantastic and memorable for both! Tessier always has a way of booking me right from the start and this book was no different. I was left needing more, and wondering when she’ll be nice and give it to us.

While I have only been able to read 2am so far by M Piper I absolutely loved it and can't wait to read more of these stories.

Archer and Sadie's story was fantastic. It went way too quickly for a read but packed everything I loved into it -- forbidden brother's best friend, steam and feels. I loved Sadie's personality and felt her character was incredibly easy to relate to and become one with. Archer was just a delightful book boyfriend with making his presence known yet not being too overbearing

The only problem with this short story? It ended. It f*cking ended and I need more. You cannot do this to me, Lianne. Okay, you just did. But you can't leave me in this state where I crave more for longer than necessary. 😭 This little bonus to the Black Hearts Still Beat series was absolutely perfect, delicious, not insta lovish (is it even a word?) at all considering Red and Damon just met.

Trey and his brother go to the same gala after being cheated on by his gold digging girlfriend. Sparks fly when Cali and Trey share a searing kiss at midnight. The chemistry between these two is palpable and I cannot wait to see what is next for this couple.

Review for Champagne Wishes by Shantel Tessier

The author packed so much steam and scorching hot chemistry in this short story. Cali and Treyton set my kindle on fire. Both of them were dealing with disappointment from their partners on New Years Eve. So they decided to go on the wild adventure after meeting in the big gala in Chicago Navy Pier at midnight. Cali is a vixen who belongs to the rich society. Treyton is not so bad either. I will wait to see how their chemistry transforms into someth
