REVIEW: A Shot In the Dark by L.J Stock

Book: A Shot In The Dark
Author: L. J. Stock
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: 12th March


Life had never been simple for Miki Quinten. Her mom had died when she was eight, and in the aftermath of their loss, her father turned his grief into alcoholism, inadvertently converting their home into a melting pot of debauchery. Unwilling to be put into the foster system, Miki takes control of her own life and becomes invisible to almost everyone but her best friend and godmother. 

It stayed that way until her junior year in high school and the sudden, unexpected crash landing of Childress High’s star defensive end, Dustin Hill, into her life. The unlikely pair are thrown together and discover they have more in common than either of them thought, and before either Miki or Dustin are prepared an unbreakable bond is formed between them. The only problem is, Dustin’s already in a relationship, and his controlling family have made it clear they want him to stay there.

Against Miki’s better judgment the two grow closer until fate’s twisted sense of humor intervenes and everything in Miki’s world is scattered, plunging her into a crisis she’s not sure she will ever recover from.

 My Review
I sit here at a loss of what to say about this book. Not because I hated it, but because it shattered me. I haven’t stayed up all night reading a book in months, but this one I could not put down. To say it was well worth the hour of sleep is an understatement. This story is everything.
Miki is a character that is such a pure soul. She radiates goodness, hope, and strength. She’s the girl we should all aspire to be. Able to tackle the bleakest of situations with such selflessness. And along comes the boy who has everything. The boy who isn’t all that different from her. The boy that I wasn’t sure had her best interest at heart at first, but I grew to love.
Miki’s story will make you believe in true love. It will show you it’s strength, it’s hope, it’s sacrifice. You will walk away from this book shattered, but at peace. You know the saying everything happens for a reason? this book is the epitome of that saying. It has it’s lighter moments too, especially with her best friend. Her family reminds me so much like mine, right down to the crazy kids.
If there’s any book you must read this year, it’s this one. I have been a reader of LJ Stock for quite some time, and she has created magic with this book

Meet the Author

From a young age L.J. Stock was led by her imagination. From the moment she could read she fell into worlds where trees could talk and little girls could move things with their minds. 

In no hurry to grow up, she found stories all around her, in the forests of Plym Bridge, the moss covered hills of Dartmoor, then, as she grew older, the wide spread city of Houston, where she currently resides and works. A constant daydreamer, she hopes that one day, her passion can become something more than just a hobby for her. 

Still led by her imagination, the worlds have slowly grown from childish adventures to urban fantasies and romances. With inspirational authors such as Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Judy Blume, John Grisham and Stephen King guiding her through her life so far, L.J. Stock has finally decided that it is time for her to go for gold and try land herself on someone else’s future list of favorites. 

Putting words on paper is as essential as breathing to her, but on the rare occasions that she isn’t writing, she can be found with a video game remote in hand or curled up on the couch with her pup and a good book. Music is also such an important part of her life, it’s a wonder there isn’t a background soundtrack playing wherever she goes. 

A good girl to most, a bad girl to a few, L.J. believes that every genre should be attempted and is more than likely to have tried to release three hundred series’ ranging from vampires and werewolves, to dystopian and even classic romance, before she reaches even middle age. At least, that’s the plan for now.

REVIEW: Two Wedding Crashers by Meghan Quinn








I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.






Chills scream their way down my arms and legs, my nipples pucker, and just like that, with one word, all humor vanishes from our little conversation and awareness of this all-consuming man wrapped around me hits me hard.

Gathering myself, I say, “Tell me something Chris and Justine know about you.”

“Hmm.” His thumbs hook under the waistband of my shorts, playing with the lower part of my hipbones. His touch spurs on my pelvis, needing to rock, begging for him to go lower. My toes curl in my sandals and my back slightly arches, reaching for more. “Something they know about me.”

His mouth doesn’t stray from its position against my ear, and his hips start to slowly move underneath me, his legs tangling with mine. Involuntarily, one of my hands hooks the back of his neck as I hold on tightly to him, feeling like I need support from the onslaught of sensation I’m feeling.

I hear him say something, but it doesn’t register in my brain, which has turned to mush as his thumbs stray from my hipbones to right above my pubic bone.

There is no denying how turned on I am, how wet I am from his mere touch, how much—despite my reservations—I want this man.

With each stroke, my head turns farther and farther to the side until our noses are touching, Beck’s head bends forward to meet me halfway. My eyes flutter shut for a brief moment before I open them and am captured by those flecks of green and gold.

The air stills around us, our breath mixing, swirling between us, our lips so close.

One swipe of this thumb.

Another one.

I can’t breathe.

I can’t focus.

Another swipe, my head leans even closer, my tongue wetting my lips.

One more swipe . . .

My heart hammers in my chest, my skin prickling with awareness.

Beck brings his mouth even closer, only a whisper away now, and he waits.

Holding still.

His breathing feeling erratic beneath me.




And I’m gone.

I bring my mouth to his, slowly parting my lips ever so slightly, just enough to maneuver my mouth across his.

A low, provocative moan escapes Beck as one of his hands snags the back of my head and holds me in place, almost as if he lets go, I’ll disappear.

Needing more, I shift on his lap so I’m straddling him once again, my hands on his bare chest, feeling the powerful sinew that holds him together.

Our lips press and mold, mingling, taking, begging . . .


Beck’s tongue runs against my bottom lip, eliciting a moan from deep within me, lighting a fire so hot, so wild, my hands start to travel up his neck to his cheeks where I grip him, positioning his head so when I open my mouth, I can expertly dive my tongue onto his.

He groans, his lap shifting against mine now, his hard-on pressing against my wet and throbbing center. I match his rocking, using my position on his lap to take advantage of his length I can feel through his board shorts.

This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen, but God, am I happy it has. Maybe I really should live in the moment, maybe I should take advantage of the opportunity, maybe I should…


My Review

When it comes to a romcom, I think Meghan Quinn has taken over that corner. This story is so full of laughter, characters that you want to be your friends, steamy chemistry, and most importantly….love.

 I fell for Beck in the first book in the series. He was so mysterious and guarded, yet so much fun. There’s no better combo than sexy and mysterious. His back story really got me. It wasn’t easy to read, it mad me mad, it mad me cry, and most importantly, it gave me compassion.

Rylee is quite the character. She’s larger than life and yet, much like Beck, guarded. A romance author by trade, you would think she had all the answers when it came to finding love, but this girl is stubborn! She had me so frustrated sometimes, but I could understand her motives. Not to say I agreed with them, I mean, hello…Beck, but I get it. And her friends. I ADORED them! Especially Victoria. I think she needs a story. I want to see her undone by a Beck of her own.

Now, the heart of the story. That’s what I wasn’t prepared for….all the emotions. This story is as deep as it is funny. It has it’s laugh out loud moments, as well as the moments that will make you swoon, sigh, and cry all at the same time. I have to say, I loved this book more than the first, and I really loved the first book. I can’t wait to see if Hayden can overthrow Beck


Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

REVIEW: Crazy Madly Deeply by Lily White



🖌 🖌 🖌


CMD cover

Holden sees things.
Lots of things.
Things we would call ugly, but he believes are beautiful.

He paints sad pictures.
And strums lonely guitars.
He drowns out the taunting voices while shunning the expected norms.

I let them hurt him.
I wasn’t strong enough to speak out.
I hurt him, too, only to prove I wasn’t just like him.

But then I saw him.
I heard him.
I learned why Holden wasn’t CRAZY like they said.

I loved him MADLY.
I fell for him DEEPLY.
And alone, I decided to save a man who was the most beautiful of us all.

Crazy Madly Deeply Release

 My Review

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Lily White is an author that never fails to show the reader just how talented she truly is. Crazy Madly Deeply was such an emotionally driven read. Lily takes on a myriad of subjects that are so relevant today, mental illness, peer pressure, bullying, acceptance. Some of it is tough to read. It will break your heart, make you mad, all of which it should. Then it will give you hope, it will help you understand, it will help you see things from a point of view that needs to be shown more of….the one that all this happens too. Holden’s story isn’t your typical Lily dark, but it does have some elements that aren’t exactly rainbows and butterflies.
I highly recommend going in to this story blind, because it’s one of those stories that each reader will get something different out of. It makes you think, it makes you cry, it makes you smile, and it will make you want to be a nicer person.

REVIEW: Where We Began by Nora Flite

Title: Where We Began
Series: Where We Began Duet #1
Author: Nora Flite
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 6, 2018




My life was full of my sister’s laughter and miles of green trees.
Then the black car came.
Strangers in sharp suits dragged my father back to a past he kept hidden.
Worse, they made him choose one of us—his own children—to go and live with his
enemies. It’s a way to keep him working for them… and from running again.
I’m a hostage.
The food is fancy, the carpets are lush, but this bed isn’t mine. I don’t
belong here and my head and heart know it. I’m painfully alone.
And then I’m not.
The first time I meet Dominic Bradley, he saves me from a maid with a pair of
scissors. This sweet boy is nothing like the rest of his family. He becomes the
only sunlight in these smothering halls. The one person holding me together.
When he leaves for six years, it shreds my soul.
It’s nothing compared to when he comes back.
Gone is my sweet boy. In his place is a hardened soldier ready to obey his
father. He’s gained new demons; and I’ve lost my only friend. Dominic acts like
he’s forgotten our past. But I can’t. It’s impossible to forget the moment I
fell in love.
I know where we began.
I’m not sure where we’ll end.

My Review

This book had me asking so many questions!! From the beginning I was sucked in to Laiken and Dominic’s world. And what a world it is! It’s like a huge puzzle that you have to piece together.

There were so many parts of the story that had me so perplexed, but not because it is confusing to follow, but because I needed to know all of the answers! Which of course we don’t get….yes, this ends in a cliff hanger but not to fear, the second book releases very very soon. So we don’t have to wait long for all of our questions to be answered.

This is the first Nora Flite book i have ever read and I was NOT disappointed. the characters were enriching, the plot was suspenseful, and the chemistry between Laiken and Dominic will make you blush.

I can’t wait to see how their story ends!

Coming Soon
Releasing March 20, 2018

REVIEW: Secret Lucidity by E.K. Blair

Genre: Student/Teacher Forbidden Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2018
This wasn’t
supposed to happen.
But it did.
This wasn’t
supposed to be my life.

I never could’ve
imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty.
The only problem?
He was off limits.
But he became my

until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences.

 My Review
    I sat on my couch on a dreary Saturday afternoon, tears streaming down my face and read this book in one sitting. I’m talking full blown KKW ugly cry. The whole idea of student/teacher romances has always been one of my favorites, but this….this is something on another level. It’s like no other student/teacher book out there.  This isn’t a pretty book. It’s dark, it’s beautiful, it’s so so wrong, but you want everything to be right.
What I wasn’t expecting was for me to open my mind a bit and see the ugly behind what should be a pretty black and white topic.  The story behind these perfectly flawed characters is tragic, especially Cam’s. That girl will break your heart.
E.K. takes some pretty tough subject matter and tackles it head on. And she does it with a realness that comes through the pages. It’s so easy for us to judge what we don’t understand and she makes us understand. Throws it in our face and forces us to face what is a reality for so many people. I will admit that I walked away from this story with a different perspective than I had when I went in.
This book will  consume you and I strongly encourage you to stock up on  tissues and wine. And lots of both. This story will rip you to shreds, but it is so worth it
Author Bio
New York Times, USA Today, and International bestselling author, E.K.
Blair, takes her readers on an emotional roller coaster with her books. Blair
tends to drift towards love stories that are deeply layered with emotional
angst. Give her a character and she will dig into their core to find what lies

Review: Bought by the Boss by Stacey Kennedy

In a duet of naughty novellas, a charity date auction turns into all-out war when a pair of powerful corporate lawyers each buy the other’s assistant for a weekend of seduction.

I’ve wanted Aria Finley from the moment I met her.
We flirt, we laugh, we connect. It could be perfect.
She’s even best friends with my assistant.
Problem is, she works for my archnemesis—Jackson Keller—and she’s the kind of girl who stays loyal unless you give her a reason not to.
Besides my hard-on there’s something hot between us, and I won’t rest until I put my finger on it.
So when I get the chance to buy Aria for the weekend at a charity auction, there’s no limit.
I’m going to take her home and take what I want because I’ll make her want it too.
And by Monday, she’ll know she’s mine.

Liam Maxwell thinks he can get to me through my assistant, Aria.
Well, two can play that game.
Now Mallory Beckett—Liam’s assistant and Aria’s best friend—is mine for the weekend.
Only she has no idea who bought her at the charity auction.
This is going to be worth every penny.
But soon I realize that Mallory has been waiting for my touch all along.
What starts as a fling turns into something more.
From the beginning, I was so focused on stealing her away.
I never thought about the fact that I’d drown if I lost her.
Now the game has changed. And she needs to know that she belongs to me.

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Two very hot and spicy stories in one book… now that I love. Both these men are strong Alpha males that need a strong, sassy females by their side. And the best part of it all is that they have that in spades because they each fall for the other mans assistant. Now I loved the fact that these ladies were able to not only do their jobs and stay professional they didn’t betray the other mans secrets. They stayed stedfast to their beliefs. Its refreshing and nice to see they can be loyal to two different people even if the two other people hate each other. I love how Stacey Kennedy is able to stay consistent with her Alpha males. They show their dominant side without having to be domineering. And the female characters are sassy and playful and sexy as all get out. These books were just what I needed after so many regency books back to back.

I give this book 5 kisses.

Happy Reading… Adri

Review: The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake

Aurora Paxton was once the belle of the ball, the most sought-after debutante of the season—until a scandalous mistake ruined her.Shunned by her family, Rory was banished to the country to live in disgrace. Now she’s been summoned back to London by her stepmother, who is being blackmailed by the least likely person Rory can imagine: Lucas Vale, Marquess of Dashell.

Lucas is someone Rory’s known for years—a man as devastatingly handsome as he is coldly disapproving of her. What in the world could he want from her or her family? Rory intends to find out as soon as she comes face to face with her old foe. What she never expects, however, is that the icy aristocrat has a soft spot for her—and a secret plan to redeem her status. Could it be that Lucas has been in love with Rory all along. . .and has finally found a way to win her heart?

The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake is a sweeping Regency romance you won’t be able to put down!

I will begin as I always do, by thanking NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

This book to me was similar to a second chance love, though it was a second chance at life really. Aurora gets her chance to get back into the good graces of society as well as get back to being who she was always supposed to be. The woman for Lucas. The woman who would bring him joy and peace. Though Lucas never gave himself the chance to show Aurora his feelings when she made her debut years before, he makes sure not to make that same mistake again. Though the reasons she is in his home are not the ones he wishes for he still tries. This was an awesome book about second chances and rising from the ashes.

I give this book 4 kisses.

Happy Reading… Adri

Review: Romancing the Scot by May McGoldrick

Hugh Pennington—Viscount Greysteil, Lord Justice of the Scottish Courts, hero of the Napoleonic wars—is a grieving widower with a death wish. When he receives an expected crate from the continent, he is shocked to find a nearly dead woman inside. Her identity is unknown, and the handful of American coins and the precious diamond sown into her dress only deepen the mystery.

Grace Ware is an enemy to the English crown. Her father, an Irish military commander of Napoleon’s defeated army. Her mother, an exiled Scottish Jacobite. When Grace took shelter in a warehouse, running from her father’s murderers through the harbor alleyways of Antwerp, she never anticipated bad luck to deposit her at the home of an aristocrat in the Scottish Borders. Baronsford is the last place she could expect to find safety, and Grace feigns a loss of memory to buy herself time while she recovers.

Hugh is taken by her beauty, passion, and courage to challenge his beliefs and open his mind. Grace finds in him a wounded man of honor, proud but compassionate. When their duel of wits quickly turns to passion and romance, Grace’s fears begin to dissolve…until danger follows her to the very doors of Baronsford. For, unknown to either of them, Grace has in her possession a secret that will wreak havoc within the British government. Friend and foe are indistinguishable as lethal forces converge to tear the two lovers apart or destroy them both.

As always I want to start by thanking NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

What a fantastic way to introduce us to the Pennington’s. Well its an introduction for me at least as I have not ready any books by this author in the past. Hugh Pennington is a wonderful man with a great capacity to forgive, only one he has never been able to forgive was himself. But its awesome to see someone he least expected come into his life and teach him that its ok to let go of the past. Poor Grace, she has to not only witness horrible things throughout her life but to then also go through the troubles she does to arrive at the Pennington’s home isn’t for the weak. She proves how strong of a person she truly is and how strong of a mind she possesses.

I give this book 4 kisses…

Happy reading… Adri

REVIEW: The Upside To Being Single by Emma Hart





If anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads.

I still don’t know why I did it.
Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends.
Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads.
Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face.
Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again.
Not that it matters. Not today.
Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent.

There are many upsides to being single.
Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like?
Not one of them.

“I just—I don’t get it.” I threw myself onto the sofa and almost sent the box of donuts flying onto the floor.
Thankfully, Peyton was quicker than the box. She grabbed it and sat back, hugging it to herself. “First, watch the donuts. I got the last two pink sprinkles, and I’m partial to them.” She stroked the top of the box. “Second, what don’t you get? How he doesn’t care about your boobs? I don’t care about them either.”
“You’re not supposed to care about my boobs. You’re a woman, for a start.”
“I care about your boobs,” Chloe interrupted, tucking her blond hair behind her ear. “I think you have great boobs. Bra or no bra.”
“Usually no bra,” Peyton added.
“I’m not afraid to throw something at you,” I warned her. “This is awkward.”
“Ugh! Get over yourself, Melanie!” Peyton snapped her fingers. “You are a grown woman. He is a grown man. He saw your tits. So what? Steven Lawrence saw your tits five times in junior year.”
I snatched a donut from the box. Don’t tell my hips. “We were dating! It’s entirely different!”
Chloe delicately picked up a white-iced donut before saying, “She’s right. It is different, Peyt. They were dating, and Jacob is her boss. You can’t expect her to just get over that. It is partly your fault.”
“It’s just as much your fault,” Peyton reminded her, then looked at me and nodded toward Chloe. “Drunky smurf over here shook her Tic-Tacs like she was in front of a bachelor party leaving a curry house.”
I choked on my laughter. “That’s not the point. You got us drunk. It’s almost entirely your fault.”
“Look, sunshine,” she said, tearing a bite of donut off the ring so her words were muffled. “I didn’t grab your shirt and whip it up like a two-dollar hooker on overtime. You did that, so grow a pair and take responsibility for your actions.”
“You sound like you don’t want to take responsibility for yours.”
“Hey. You’re big girls. You can refuse cocktails.”
Chloe and I shared a glance. “Refuse cocktails?” she said. “I don’t understand.”
“You have us mixed up with your other friends,” I continued. “But, wait. You don’t have other friends.”
“I have plenty of friends,” Peyt said.
“Friends without penises. Or benefits.”
She paused. “We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about your hot boss who knows what your tits look like.”
“You’re not helping.”
“I’m not trying to help. I’m trying to slap your size-eight ass into reality, you idiot.”
“Slap mine into reality and I’m putting yours on a catapult. Right into the middle of the gulf.” I tore my donut in two and gave her boobs a pointed look. “I always wondered if silicone would float.”



My Review

How I have never read an Emma Hart book before this is beyond me. This book was hilarious! Mellie is endearingly sweet and sassy, and her friends are even more so. The rapport between her and Jake will have you cracking up. It will also make you wish their hotel was real so you could book a month long stay. I would do that in a hot minute.

I really like when a book focuses on the story and not just what goes on between the sheets. Sometimes the build up is just as sexy as the deed itself, and it certainly rings true for this book.  For these two, it’s all about the cat and mouse game, and they play the game quite well.

If you are looking for a romcom that will have you craving doughnuts and wanting to go to Mardi Gras like this second, you need to read this book. Emma Hart gained a new fan for life and I can’t wait to read more


By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies—usually wine—and writes books.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.




REVIEW: Found by Claudia Burgoa

FOUND by Claudia Burgoa is now LIVE!




All I’ve ever wanted was for someone to choose me. My mother didn’t. My father didn’t. The beautiful boy next door, who grew up to marry me, didn’t. Neither did the next man with whom I thought my heart was safe.

Back in the Bay area, three thousand miles from New York City, I can start fresh. Become one with the sea again, rise or fall on the tide of my own choices. But on the first day of my bright new life, the darkest shadows of my past follow me through my office door. The two men whose names are definitely not on my five-year plan.

If I let it consume me—my need for one man, my love for the other—the darkness will swallow me whole. I can’t let that happen. Not again. This time, the waves of emotion crashing against my heart won’t drown me. This time, I get to choose my happy ending.

My Review
This was my first Claudia Burgoa book and my first intro to the Everhart brothers. While I should have went back and read the previous books, I was able to follow along with the story perfectly fine. I just know how their stories end, that’s all 😉
 Claudia’s writing is astounding. I love when an author can convey a character’s emotions through the pages in such a way that you feel them, you just aren’t being told about them. I absolutely adore Hazel. She is such a strong female lead, even if she doesn’t realize it. I can say I empathized with her throughout her story.  I’m  not sure I can say I would have handled her situation any better than she did. It goes to show you that while all things aren’t black and white, sometimes they are more clear than we can see at the time. We just have to muddle through the grey first.
