Book Review: Always You by Denise Grover Swank

B O O K R E V I E W

30656337

Title: Always You
Author: Denise Grover Swank
Publication: November 28th 2017
Pages: 352
Synopsis:

First love is better the second time around.

Matt Osborn had no idea coaching his five-year-old nephew’s soccer team would get him so much attention from the mothers-attention he doesn’t want now that he’s given up on love and having a family of his own. Yep, Matt’s the last of his bachelor buddies, and plans on staying that way. That is, until he finds himself face-to-face with the woman who broke his heart.

Single mom Anna paused her life in England to help her father recover from an illness. She can’t afford complications, and too-hot-for-his-own-good Matt Osborn-her almost former fiancé-is definitely a complication. He’s a reminder of what might have been-or should have been. That irresistible pull between them isn’t over. Not even close. But if she’s not careful, she’ll break both their hearts . . . again.

MY RATING: 4/5 STARS

I was provided an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second book from Denise Grover Swank and it honestly was not a disappointment. I love second chance romances especially an emotional one like what college sweethearts Anna and Matt went through. Matt always knew Anna was the one. He fell completely head over heels for her when he first met her and knew his heart would forever be hers whether he wanted it to be true or not. It pained me to read how these two lovebirds fell apart. Anna was too young, too scared, and too weak to get locked down in a marriage when Matt popped the question. She said she accepted a job in London, England, and didn’t want kids or want to stay in the small town she grew up in. It completely shattered Matt when he heard all this.

BOOK REVIEW: In Too Deep by Jordan Marie

Traveling in London (3)

35695456

Title: In too Deep
Author: Jordan Marie
Publication: October 17th 2017
Pages: 268
Synopsis:

A brand new comedy series from USA Today Best Selling Author Jordan Marie 
Available for the pre-order price of 2.99. Price will raise to 3.99 upon release day. 

I did a bad thing.

I did a really bad thing.
I’m not a bad person, I swear. I just made a few mistakes.

Mistake number one was agreeing to rent my hotel out to an insufferable a**hole, named Aden Smith.
Mistake number two was ignoring his threats to sue me when he handed over a list of items he deemed “unacceptable”.
Mistake number three was diving into the pool to save his life when he fell. It would have been less complicated to hide his body.

When the hospital refuses to let me know how he is, without permission from his immediate family, I panic.

Claiming to be his wife might be my biggest mistake yet—especially when he believes me!

He might have been the one drowning, but I’m sinking in a bed of lies and going down fast—and there’s not a rescue in sight.

Complete Standalone FULL LENGTH NOVEL Pages listed will not be representative of the final product. Happy Ending, Laugh Out Loud Comedy and an Alpha Hero with his eyes only on one woman all contained inside.

MY RATING: 4/5 STARS

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

In Too Deep follows the troupe of enemies to lovers romance so if you’re not down for a hero who is a major a** to the heroine then this book isn’t for you. Seriously, I don’t know what has gotten into authors nowadays but they’re making the heroes really hard to accept, like, and ultimately forgive for the behaviour they pull in the story. It’s revolting at times so that’s why there’s a big star knocked off in this book.

I’m adding more stars because this is been the first book in a long time where it actually made me laugh. And it’s not laugh out loud all the time so don’t come back to me with pitchforks when you’re not laughing from page one. It’s just a chapter in this story that made me laugh. A lot. And I applaud Jordan Marie for it.

BOOK REVIEW: Heartless by Michelle Horst

Book Review!

35606912

Title: Heartless
Author: Michelle Horst
Publication: August 30th 2017
Pages: 219
Synopsis:

I’m warned that Carter Hayes is heartless.

He’s part of the screw crew.
He’ll just use you and leave you.
He’s ruthless and always gets what he wants.

Just look for the trail of broken hearts and dreamy sighs and you’ll find him.

“Hot as sin, Carter.”

I don’t have time to fall head over heels for any guy. Besides, he’d never notice someone like me. I have a three step plan. Get through college. Get a job. Get my sister out of the hell hole I left her in. That’s all I have time for.

That’s until I hear of the betting pool the guys started. Whoever screws me first gets the money. The moment Carter looks at me, I know it’s only because of the bet.

I tell myself our first kiss is only for show.
I hate my heart for falling for his irresistible charm.

For one foolish moment, I actually want him to be my first earth-shattering love. All it takes for me to give in is a little attention, a cocky smile, and a fake promise of a happily-ever-after.

When I’m surrounded by crumpled sheets and the smell of sex, I realize I let him have me for four hundred dollars.

To save what little pride I have left, I pretend it didn’t mean anything, that he’s just one last screw before we all leave college.

I’ve spent the last four years lying to myself. When I’m ready to take the final step of my plan, and save my sister, guess who walks through my front door?

This is a full-length, stand alone, unrequited love/second chance romance.
Note: The book ends at 77% with samples of Predator and Protector.

MY RATING: 3.5/5 STARS

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, honestly, Heartless was a very borderline book for me. Authors who follow the troupe of enemies to lovers seem to be mistaken nowadays about what it means to be a lovable enemy to a hateful and rude enemy. I was literally seething while I read this book a lot of the times because of how some characters behaved and I’ll get into it more later but be AWARE. THIS IS YOUR WARNING.

BOOK REVIEW: Animal by Jenika Snow

Book Review!

35524393

Title: Animal
Author: Jenika Snow
Publication: August 22nd 2017
Pages: 80
Synopsis:

Being bad never felt so good.

RYE

I’d been called bad, dangerous … a criminal. And I didn’t deny it. Everyone knew it, especially the one woman I wanted but couldn’t have.

I should’ve stayed away, should’ve left her alone. Jessa was the daughter of my business partner, too young for me, too innocent.

But I wanted her in the worst of ways, and no amount of self-control could keep me from her.

I wanted to claim every part of her, make her know what it was like to have a real man between her thighs.

And I’d have her.

JESSA

He was older than me, dangerous, masculine in the best of ways. I saw the way he watched me, the looks he gave me when he thought I wasn’t paying attention.
Rye wanted me, even if he’d never do anything about it.

I was just the virgin daughter of his business partner, not someone he’d ever get involved with. But that didn’t stop me from lusting after him, from picturing his big body over mine, his hands touching me until I cried out for more.

But I was tired of waiting. I would make the first move, and damn the consequences.
Warning: The hero of this story might seem like the “bad guy,” but no fears because it’s a safe read, there isn’t any OW drama, and he only has eyes for one woman. It’s a hot and dirty story, short and to the point, and exactly what you’ve come to expect in the Real Man series.

MY RATING: 4/5 STARS

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve been a fan of Jenika Snow’s work and especially Real Man series since the beginning of last year. They’re a fantastic series featuring short novellas filled with bad ass heroes and heroines that you can definitely relate to.

I’ve got one month to come up with enough to help my impulsive father pay off his debt to the Cades.
Twenty thousand dollars in thirty days.
My roommate has a plan—scratch that, she’s already followed through with her plan.
Auction off my V-card.
It’s a tale as old as time, but there’s just one problem: Jackson Cade just placed the winning bid … of 200,000 dollars.

The second she laid eyes on me and realized who I was, she hated me.

Skirt Chaser by Stacey Kennedy was an easy romantic comedy read that leaves you feeling HOT, HOT, HOT!

Needless to say, Skirt Chaser includes a lot of hot sex scenes featuring our resident hero, Greyson, and our heroine, Evie. It’s a simple story featuring the familiar troupe.

He hired her as a contract designer but since the project is done, their boss-employee relationship has ended which means that everything is fair game.
