~Synopsis~

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.
As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

My relationship with this author is a simple, yet perfect one. She writes it…and I read it. 😉

I have read every book in the “Deep in your Veins” series, the “Dark In You” series, the  “Phoenix Pack” series and of course the “The Mercury Pack” series. To say that I am a big fan of Suzanne Wright, would be an understatement.

So when I saw this baby on NetGalley, I jumped on it. 😛

Now all these books center around a different couple, so technically they could be read as a stand-alone. I would advise everyone to read this series, and the Phoenix Pack series, in order though…I am so glad I did because I really enjoyed it. Now I have to be honest here and say that I was hoping for Trick or Dominic’s story to be next, but I found out they are next in line. 😉

Doesn’t really matter anyway because all these Alpha boys are fine!!!

I absolutely adore this author…

Because she is responsible for writing my all time favorite books,  “More Than Forever“, but to be honest… I have loved reading every single one of her books!! I think this book can be read as a standalone, but I would strongly advise everyone to read the “More Than” series first. It’s an amazing series and it’s where I first met little Logan. You should also give the first book in this series, “Lucas”  a go…

I promise you won’t be sorry!!

But like I said…this book is all about Logan, and I have wanted to read his story, from the moment I met him. 😉

They call him The Mute for a reason. Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks. When he does, it’s with disdain. When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.

I really love this series and after finishing book 2, “Ruckus“, which was awesome, I couldn’t wait to start Trent’s story.

Each book in this series centers around a different couple. I would advise starting with book 1 though since they all play a big part in each other’s lives.

This time it’s Trent’s turn to fall…which he does spectacularly. Trent is the quiet one of the HotHoles…but you know what they say about the silent brooding types….those are the ones you need to look out for.

Trent used to be a big manwhore and his manwhoring, caused him to knock up a stripper. His baby momma didn’t stick around though…leaving both him and his 1 year old daughter Luna when he was away on a trip.

~Review~Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland~

Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Page Count: 255 pages
Genre(s): Romance
Release Date: September 16, 2017
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,
I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing…for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.I want you.The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked. Think about it. Or don’t. Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
–Simon.

These are two amazing authors, but I have to confess that the real reason I wanted to read this book was the cover because HOT DAMN!!! 😀

The moment I started reading this one, I was laughing out loud. Their first encounter has got to be one of the funniest “meeting” scenes ever. 😛

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

A hot and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle… 

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wasn’t supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at twenty-eight. And I most definitely wasn’t supposed to hit Hollywood’s resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot. 
Now, my guilt and homelessness have me living in his apartment, taking care of him, while he’s incapacitated. 
Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I’ve had a crush on forever, doesn’t sound like a chore, right? 
Wrong. 
Gabriel Evans is a crude, rude asshole who drinks way too much and smokes like a chimney. 
The sooner I get a new place to live and when Gabriel’s foot is healed, I’m out of here. 
So, why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And why do I keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless? 
Breaking Hollywood wasn’t part of the plan. But neither is falling in love with him. 
Loved Breaking Hollywood? Check out Samantha’s sexy, laugh-out-loud romance, Wardrobe Malfunction, out now!

I have read several books by this author and I really enjoyed them, especially the “The Storm” series.  

So when I read the blurb for this new book, I knew I had to read it. I am so glad I did because this story was very entertaining. It was funny, sweet and very sexy. Just what I needed at the moment.

Apparently, there is a book before this one, that I missed “Wardrobe Malfunction”. Both of the MC’s are introduced in that story.  If you haven’t read it, no worries because this book can be read as a standalone. I have no idea how I missed it myself, but I will go back to read it…that’s for sure. 😉

Ava is having a day from hell. Her boyfriend has recently dumped her, she has just lost her job and got an eviction notice from her apartment, because of her pet (an awesome pygmy goat). To top it all off, she runs over the over the foot of Hollywood’s famous bad boy Gabe Evans.

~Synopsis~

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

I started this series a long time ago and I loved the first couple of books.

Somehow along the way, I lost track of it and now it seems I skipped a couple of books. No worries though.. I will be rectifying my mistake. 😉

tenor.gif (498×262)

I am known to read my books out of order and I had no problem reading this one as a standalone…but…I would still advise everyone to read the previous books first. A lot of characters from those books, make an appearance and Lucas also played a part in the previous book. So I think it would make the reading experience better if you do. 😉

I am a huge hockey fan… I have no idea how this came to be, but big men with huge hockey sticks really do it for me. 😛

I am a big fan of this author. I really loved her “Until” series and the “Underground Kings” !! So, of course, I had to give this new book a go. 😉

Even though I did enjoy reading this one…it wasn’t my favorite of her…I found the opening scene of this book pretty confusing. The heroine was running around with her arms wide and her eyes closed and ran into the hero. When he asks her if she is alright afterward she acts all flighty, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why, and what was going on.

Thankfully it did get better and things became more clear.

Just like with the previous 3 books, I absolutely fell in love with this 4th book and the characters in it!!

Shane and Nikki were both awesome characters, but they were also extremely HOT. I think this is one of the hottest books by Harper Sloan that I’ve read…which is saying something because they are all flaming!!

Shane is quite the dirty talker. 😛

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Rule #1: No hot guys. 
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of was, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone. 
No one would know me at college. 
Rule #2: No drama. 
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy-breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them. 
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me. 
Right? 
Wrong. 
And all because of Shay Coleman. 
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. 
I hated him on sight . . . 
. . . and he was about to break all my rules. 
Hate To Love You is a full-length standalone. 
There are elements that deal with the dark side of college.

I have been binge reading the “Fallen Crest”  series and when I was done…I didn’t want it to be done ;). So I figured, why stop here, why not continue on my “Tijan” streak. 😛

nothing-stops-this-train.gif (360×203)

Now I have to say…I really enjoyed reading “Hate to love you”…

But I am gonna be honest here and also say that, even though Kennedy and Shay were great, they were no Sam and Mason.This is probably because Sam and Mason have like 7 books centered around them, so I got to know them really well and I came to see them as a family of sorts.

Kennedy and Shay only have this one book, so things moved a bit faster between the two of them. Now, I am not a real big fan of insta-love but then again…this is college and I have a vague memory of things moving a lot faster when you are younger. 😛

In a sprint, every millisecond counts.
When you’re waiting for love, those milliseconds can feel like eons.

High school senior Lucas Preston has it all: star of the track team, a scholarship waiting for him, an apartment to himself and a revolving door of girlfriends. He also has an older sister, five younger brothers and a father who relies on him to make sure those brothers don’t kill each other.
His saving grace? Lois “Laney” Sanders, a girl he started to fall in like with when he was just eleven.
A girl who became his best friend, his confidant, his courage.
It took only sixteen clicks and eight seconds for Lucas to realize that his like for Laney had turned into love.
Eight life-changing seconds.
It’s also the exact length of time it took to lose her.

I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this book to be published.

Why ?? Well, because it was written by one of my favorite authors and because it’s a spinoff from one of my favorite series, which includes my all time favorite book…. “More than forever”.Not only is this a spinoff, but it’s about Lucas…Lucy’s brother!!! I was pretty sure this book was gonna be awesome and since I’m always right…it was!!
