Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Kept from You (Tear Asunder #4) by Nashoda Rose

*****4.5 Stars*****


I am seriously in love with this series and I have been waiting (not so patiently) for Kite’s story.

This is the fourth book in the series and I think it could be read as a stand alone. Why anyone would actually want to do that, is beyond me, though, because all the books in this series are awesome. So my advice…start at the beginning.  😉

17511206.gif (495×250)


Kite (Killian) is the drummer for the famous band “Tear Asunder”.

In the previous books, he always came across as kind of a badass, who was into kinky sex like BDSM. Things aren’t always as they seem, though….

3c1b55429f03897aba19c45200d8a656.jpg (500×500):


This book starts with Kite and Savvy still in high school getting to know each other.

They both have a hard time growing up. Kite especially is very angry and he has a right to be. He might be a bad boy with a bad boy attitude, but he tries to use his anger for good. That means fighting bullies and drug suppliers. Still…everyone knows not to mess with Kite. Savvy (15) is the kind of person that sees the good in everyone, especially in bad boy Kite. She might be a bit scared, but she can’t help but feel drawn to him.

c2daf78e714491322ab9c0154d1f37e0.jpg (481×721):


These two form a strong bond, however, short they’re the time they spend together is. A bond that is sealed with a kiss, when circumstances force them to say goodbye

Fast forward 11 years and they come face to face once again, this time because Savvy has run out of options and she needs a favor….


They never got over that magical kiss and this time, Kite won’t let her go…

I don’t want to go into the plot any deeper than this. Of course, there is much much more, but that would spoiler the story and like all the books in this series….this one should be read without spoilers.

I will tell you, however, that Kite is quite the dirty talker. 

tumblr_mrjmqwppzx1qkzl7oo1_r1_250.gif (250×141)

I had to fan myself more than once.  😉


I really enjoyed Kite and Savvy’s story.

She was so sweet and forgiving, while he was also so sweet, yet still angry. I think they were the perfect Ying and Yang. I am not gonna lie, though. Haven and Crisis (book 3)  are still my absolute favorite couple in this series. I would also suggest to everyone to read the “Unyielding” series, which is a spin-off of this series !!

Can’t wait for the next book in this series….which will be Trevor’s !!!

Throne of Truth (Truth and Lies Duet #2) by Pepper Winters

*****5 Stars*****transp


Simply and truly a real MASTERPIECE. That’s what this book was.

Amazing story, amazing characters, amazing writing. Throne of Truth was one of my most anticipated books! It’s the conclusion to this story because Crown of Lies left me wanting for more!  

A roller coaster of epic proportions!

Imagini pentru rollercoaster gif image


The second book starts right after the first one ended.

With Elle in danger. And with all the danger, she remains strong and fights for her freedom and life, until the end.

It starts explosive and didn’t let down until the end.

I don’t want to enter in so many details of the book because I don’t want to spoil the joy of the next readers, I just want to express my feelings. While reading this book, my feelings were like a tornado.

Penn was such an enigmatic, dirty-talker.

Infinity:

“My lips sought hers. I dragged her forward, our mouths connecting in a vicious kiss.She cried out as I held her close.
My tongue licked her seam, begging for entry but not forcing, even though every cell in my body demanded to shove her back, climb on top, and show her in actions, not words who I was.”

Commanding, kinky, devious and possessive hero. Penn’s story is pain and struggle. Throne of Truth gives us the full story of Penn.


Who he is, what he’s been hiding, and why?

Imagine similară

I’d hunted her down, invaded her life, and befriended her father because of emotion. To deny that would be the worst kind of lie because it would mean I’d have to lie to myself.


Elle’s trust and faith are put to the ultimate test.

“How did I ever believe I could walk away from him? How did one truth delete so many lies and make everything seem inconsequential now he was back in my life?”

When it comes to standing by her man, Elle does everything in her power to protect him.

She is a powerful woman!!

Imagini pentru powerful PROTECTIV woman  GIF


The book is told from dual POVs, is full of suspense, second chance to love, deceit, betrayal, jealousy, conspiracy, greed and… lies.

Imagini pentru exploziv actions gif image

“Our bodies reacquainted, our hearts patterned to the same rhythm, our minds synced into one frequency.”

I recommend to not read any reviews for this book if you haven’t read the first book.

AMAZING BOOK!

Beyond What is Given (Flight & Glory #3) by Rebecca Yarros

*****4.5 Stars*****

imageedit_3_5983509477


Looks like I’m on a Rebecca Yarros streak right now…

…and this book, like the others I have read by this author, didn’t disappoint !! The angst killed me a little, but what can I say…I love torturing myself a bit 😉

tumblr_lwwmbpvVKo1qaaihx.gif (500×296)


Samantha has left her life in Colorado, because of a major fuck-up and now she is trying to make a fresh start in Alabama.

Her friends Josh and Jagger (book 1 /2) offered her a place to live, with them and another guy. She is also trying her hardest to get into another college, which is proving to be a bitch.

But Sam is nothing if not determined and she isn’t ready to give up.

barbara-palvin-6.jpg (1920×1080):


Grayson is a bit of loner.

He is friends with his roommates Josh and Jagger but their friendship doesn’t go very deep because Grayson doesn’t give away much of himself. He puts all his time into his studying because he really wants to graduate top of his flight class. He comes off as a bit cold. But Grayson is carrying some heavy secrets himself and maybe the right person will be able to tone his broody demeanor.

2f2e4ee771ec138e48b131d184b85099.jpg (500×750):

When Grayson and Sam meet, he is struck speechless, because he was expecting Sam to be a guy.He also wasn’t expecting the shimmer of lust going through his body, while looking at her. He knows he shouldn’t go there, he knows the best thing would be to ignore his feelings.

But neither of them can ignore the sparks that fly between them for long…

giphy.gif (384×156)

One by one, secrets get revealed and while Grayson and Sam fall deeper and deeper for each other….something unimaginable happens….My heart freaking broke !!


Sam was such a great heroine and yes she may have been fooled a bit in her past…

…but as far as I was concerned, she really didn’t do anything wrong. She was so sweet and caring and funny and I felt like shit, right along with her.

tumblr_memjw43C5c1rscxu5o1_500.gif (500×233)


This book also had one of, the most hated characters in it, I think.

Usually, the sisters are the good ones and in this case, there sure were some of them, but Grayson’s sister Parker wasn’t one of them. I wanted to smash her face in so bad !!

tumblr_luzhnixj5i1r41u44o1_400.gif (295×280)

Grayson’s father was also a major asshole !!! Thankfully Grayson had a mind of his own, and he isn’t afraid of fighting for what he wants 🙂

“This is not a temporary thing between us. There is no deadline. I. Am. Always. Yours. ….So go ahead and fall. I’ve gotten really good at catching you”. 

This book put me through the wringer, but I loved every single second of it !! I can’t wait to read more by this author. I am definitely on a winning streak here !!

Nova (The Renegades #2) by Rebecca Yarros

*****4,5 Stars*****

imageedit_56_8696463879


I absolutely loved this “second chance” romance.

The only problem I had, was that I jumped straight into it, skipping book 1. I think that if you want to enjoy this story to the fullest, you should read book 1 first. Because I didn’t, the beginning was pretty confusing to me, which was totally my fault and not the author. Thankfully things started falling into place more and more, the further I got.

my-bad.gif (414×264)


Landon “Nova” is a Professional daredevil, specialized in snowboarding.

He is also a 4 times X-Games medalist.Him and some fellow adrenaline junkies are part of a team, they call “The Renegades”.

hemsworth.png (660×495):


For 9 months, he and his teammates, along with a bunch of other people, are on a “Study at Sea” cruise.

The Renegades are also filming a documentary, capturing their stunts and their life at sea. Landon is a real casanova, fucking around with everything that moves. He is doing this because he is lost and inside there is a big black empty hole, where the love of his life used to be. They call her “the curse”. But he is the one that has been cursed, ever since he left her behind.

Rachel is a beautiful, sweet and feisty girl. She’s is also quite broken.

She was happy in love with her soulmate once, that is until he shattered her heart into a million pieces.

2240078_f520.jpg (520×390):

After some trickery, from another “Renegades” team-member, the both of them are stuck on the same cruise ship for the next 6 months. They will have to come face to face and confront their pasts.


They never got over one another.

But where Landon wants to make amends and get back the girl he still loves so much, she just wants him to fuck off.

6b2f9953682ab8db4b530dc426b20662.gif (500×234)


Damn, but I loved Rachel. Now, this girl knew how to stand up for herself !!

I love a good grovel and this book gave me plenty !! She made him work his ass off to get back in her good graces. And Landon…he made some shitty mistakes, but he never once gave up and he was willing to do anything to get her forgiveness and love.

tumblr_notrwjZICD1tm3jmyo2_250.gif (245×140)


I really thing these two belonged together and I ended this book with a huge smile on my face.

superthumb.jpg (300×250):


Now I will just need to go back and read book 1. I’m also very curious about the next book in this series.
This was definitely one of the best “second chance” romances I have ever read.

I don’t have enough praise for this AMAZING BOOK.  I can not collect my thoughts.

party birthday excited yeah happy birthday Reactions excited awesome great emotions

I started this book thinking that it is a menage’ book. IT WASN’T. But holy shit what a ride. This book caught my attention as soon as it came out. It drew my attention both the blurb and the book cover. So I said there must be something interesting. OMG

In the book, the story is told on three levels. The childhood to adolescence, of protagonists, present, and almost a year before today. And all these plans which are mixed, make the reader’s mind goes crazy. MINDFUCK. But I think this is precisely the charm of the book. I think if it was narrated in a different order, it certainly did not have the same charm.


Killian and Kael Shepard are two brothers who live across the street from the DeSoto sisters,  Maverick and Jillian. Kilian is the big brother and Jillian the big sister. Both Kilian and Kael love Maverick since they were children. But Maverick has always loved Kilian, Kael became just her best friend, only in the friend zone.

 Lj:   *:


Although Kilian loved Maverick since he was a child, he always kept away from her. Or she is was still child, then she is too young and then when they started to keep the relationship secret and scheming their marriage he told her that he is not good enough for her and he wants to make a name for himself on his own and not using her father and her father’s name and power. So he went away for a while. So when he returns back, he returns engaged. But not engaged to Maverick but to her sister, Jillian. And if that was not enough it does not even offer an explanation to Maverick. I hated Killian throughout the entire book. I thought that whatever his reason was for him to make this gesture and take this decision, it still does not have an excuse.

Hasta tu sombra conoce mis más íntimos secretos y las pasiones guardadas en mi ser, las cuales seducen tus bajas pasiones, así despertando la fiera que hay en ti, la que besa mi alma y sacia mis deseos. ©Anadian Siyani:    :


Obviously, this was the perfect chance for Kael. Although he knew that Killian and Maverick love each other, he risked. He risked his heart, his future, his happiness, in one word his entire life. Because Maverick was his entire life, and he can love for both of them. He knew that deep in her heart Maverick loves him too, though not with the same intensity and in the same way. For Now.

 :    :


Maverick aka Small Fry aka Swan, as she says herself is a masochist because of feelings and thoughts she has. In revenge, she marries Kael, her best friend, even if she loves Killian with all her heart.

But when the whole truth will come out …all the lies, deception, sacrifices, scandal and revenge, what will Maverick do? Who will she choose? What reason so powerful had Killian that he had to sacrifice his own happiness? Will Kael succeed to make Maverick love him as much or even more as Killian? Will Maverick fall in love with her husband?

Modern Short Length Hairstyles For Men:  Nick Bateman  | 28 june 2012 names nick bateman nick bateman:


Killian is tough just as I like the heroes. But Kael is so sweet and honest  … For me is THE PERFECT MAN. He risked everything. And most importantly, he always put Maverick in the first place. Maverick has been all his life, all his universe, and he fought for her. I was a little disappointed to find out that he was part of the secrets and had some things to hide, but I understood in the end. Maverick … GOD how many fights and internal struggles were in her heart.I liked that she fought, struggled, she gave prove of ambition and power and in the end, she chose what was best for her and for her heart. I liked that he was honest.

This book it is about a beautiful love story. AMAZING LOVE STORY.

And love scenes were HOTI simply felt the desire and the passion.

A beautiful and amazing love story!

Everyone that knows me, also knows that I like doing shit ass backward. 🙃

0004253588_100.png (975×180):

So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I started this series with the last book. 😁


I didn’t matter, though, because this book can be read as a stand alone without getting lost. I have read many of Nicole Edwards’s books and the one thing I am always sure of even before I start reading is that it’s gonna be HOT as hell !! This book was no exception. Dylan was quite the dirty talker !!

ecb95543386455597dac01a5d9e27d29.jpg (564×565):

That, however, is not all that this book is about. This book carries a more emotional undertone than most of her other books.


Dylan has been mourning the loss of his wife for many years. He has been struggling with depression and trying to find peace of mind at the bottom of a bottle. He has been surrounded by darkness for a long time. That is until one fierce woman from his past shines a little light on him.

Sarah is fighting her own demons. Her husband committed suicide, leaving Sarah heartbroken and angry. One encounter with a man from her past gives her back some hope. One hot encounter against the wall doesn’t heal their broken souls, though.


Sarah realizes that she can’t heal Dylan and take away his pain. He has to want and do this by himself. So Sarah decides to work on herself instead…she has had enough and she doesn’t want to be lost anymore.

Fast forward 3 years and these two get another chance to be with each other.

tumblr_mrg1h1A8tt1s9nwdeo1_500.gif (500×250)tumblr_inline_nhloe248aO1r03pn2.gif (400×217)

This time they both had time to work on themselves and they are both a little less broken. They agree to fresh start, taking things day by day. This leads to some explosive hot scenes between the two of them and even a foursome !!


I really enjoyed this one, though I have to say that the MM and MMF books that Nicole Edwards has written are still my favorite. For those who want to know,..yes there is an MFMM scene, but there is no sexual interaction between men….

I was also very pleased with the fact that there is gonna be another spin-off, very curious to see where that’s gonna go.

*****5 Stars*****


Wow…it seems that everything these authors write turns into gold !! I have loved every single book that I have read by these awesome ladies !!


Once I started this book, I could not put it down, so I read it in one sitting. I was sucked right into the story and the amazing characters. Just like all the other books I have read by these authors (Addicted / Calloway series) this book isn’t just about two people finding romance. It’s about family and all members of this amazing circus family play a very important part.

tumblr_n9jbaddtkN1tqyc86o1_500.gif (499×264)


This book took me on an amazing emotional rollercoaster and I got to experience so many emotions. I went from laughing to cursing to crying to swooning and I loved every single second of it.

feelings.gif (500×201)

Luka is part of the Kotova’s. A Russian/American family, that performs in various circus shows. Luka has been part of the circus since he was a little boy. He has a lot of personal issues he struggles with. When he is 14 years old he forms a very close bond with Baylee, who is also a teenage performer in the circus. She has her very own struggles, but together, they deal. Their bond is so incredibly strong, but it also leads them to their destruction.

791415.gif (500×282)

I have decided not to go into the plot much further than this. I think this book should be read without any major spoilers.


Luka was such an amazing man. I adored him right from the start. He had a very sweet, loving and caring personality. I think everyone deserves a Luka in their life. I also loved the bond between him and his siblings. Nik may have been their rock, but Luka was the glue holding them all together.Baylee was also an awesome heroine. I really think these two were absolutely perfect for one another.

They were real soulmates.
