R E V I E W ➠ All Roads Lead To You by Jennifer Probst

2019 ARCs, July 2019 Review, MUST READS!


Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.

After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.

How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?

So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

RELEASE DATE: July 23, 2019

“Mo stor.” My treasure.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author, she was one of my very first reads, many moons ago!! I have also read Book #1 & 2!! This one I was looking for more because it involves horses, a traveler and the possibility of an end.

Harper is a beautiful soul, loner so to say. Content with herself at being alone, no man, no kids…hadn’t even thought about it. Heck she though she was broken because of that, but she just is okay to be where she is, with what she has and the way things have been. Until a stranger walks in, threatening it all.

That something was Aiden, a traveler from another country coming down to NY to get away from it all. Hide, run…whichever, he was there to not be elsewhere. That’s how he ended up in a B & B where the interior was charming and just what he needed. Harper is a strong woman but Aiden is the right kind of alpha to handle her. Their chemistry is off the hook in this, even when they stayed away…the glances and thoughts. *sizzling* and let’s not mention the cat-and-mouse-tug-and-pull-game they have going on!

Their first kiss…oh.my.god. I was literally swooning in my chair from it! GOOD GOSH, was that a perfect kiss. Aiden gave Harper exactly what she needed when she didn’t even know she DID need it. Forever Swooning over that kiss! Let me just also help you and throw in a baby goat Named Captain Hoof and a magnificent horse named Phoenix.

Basically Aiden let Harper BE HARPER, be the woman she is, strong and take-care of everything workaholic…but he gave her more…makes her feel alive, like a woman…sexy! And that is why AIDEN the Irish traveler is one of my now favorite BOOKBOYFRIENDS! *sigh*

But sadly like I said at the beginning that possibility became a guarantee of an END. JP writes beautiful words and I just loved this story. There was enough action, adventure, passion and the swoon factor not to mention romance. It also has the previous characters from book 1 and 2 so it all tied in beautifully. Even if the ending killed me *tear*

R E V I E W ➠ Falling With You by Carrie Ann Ryan

2019 ARCs, July 2019 Review, MUST READS!


NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.


I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

And her.

Only Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.


“He wasn’t mine. He had never been mine. And the sooner I got that through my skull, the better for both of us.”

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read or review by this author, although I will say that I have read a lot fo her books BB (BB=Before Bookstagramming) so I am familiar with her writing style and I haven’t read Book 1 & 2 so I am skipping ahead. OPS, but I couldn’t pass the chance because of the blurb that got me and the cover photo.

I guess you can say I must be a sucker for tear jerker’s. Ones where a loved one is gone *sigh* here we are again. The beginning alone got me, when Sienna get’s into trouble and a certain someone comes to the rescue, all kind’s of things go wrong…and not just with the incident. My heart goes out to Sienna who is trying to figure it out herself too. After a HUGE TRAGEDY that left everyone confused and with questions…one things never changed someone, well it changed just Sienna isn’t sure why and how her “crush” on Aiden got stronger.

The story does have some GO BACK’S as i call them, from previous years history which are great, I do love those. This is definitely a ENEMY-TO-LOVERS-ROMANCE and you’ll see what I mean. Aiden is not your typical hero, he is all man and alpha yes but also carries a huge chip on his shoulder…my heart only partially goes out to him because there were a lot of time I just wanted to smack him so hard! *face palm* stupid men!

I want to address the cutest and most *swoon* scene in this that involves a rough, big, handsome chef and a cute adorable little kitten named Diego that meow’s! *stop me someone* this made my heart flutter. *p.s. he is a little devil*

I also have to say that you should prepare, this entire story pulled at my heartstrings…bad! I can just feel the anger, grief and loss…*sigh* that is why Aiden and Sienna’s relationship makes it so much harder. How do you move on from something like that? I mean they equally shared a person, friends wise of course, but it’s never an easy loss that way. The hardest part is, Sienna know’s there wouldn’t be an “US” because Aiden…he just couldn’t get over it. Too soon, too much and too fast. *god, my heart*

To say I got a little emotional in this book, is an understatement. It really brought out all the emotions for me, why I love the author’s books. Each book is a new adventur, this one just happens to be a heartbreak one. I won’t say anymore but HIGHLY UBER-HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book! I am getting the paperback when I need to feel ALL THE FEELS in the future!

Fractured Connections Series [Book 1, 2 & 4]

R E V I E W ➠ Love At First Sight by Kelly Elliott

2019 ARCs, July 2019 Review, MUST READS!


Love at first sight. 

That’s what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends. 

When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart. 

I want to hold out hope that he’ll change his mind. 

Instead, he moves on. 

The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn’t slay me. 

So, I say yes…to the man I love. But he isn’t the man I’ve been in love with nearly my entire life. 

“He won’t ever be able to love you like I love you. No one will ever love you like that.”

“Les mots ne peuvent pas decrire mon amour pour toi.”

Words cannot describe my love for you.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Kelly Elliott is one of my top 5 favorite authors and reads. I have read every single of her books and am very familiar with her writing style. This is a stand-alone and I was over the moon excited to give into this!

This story starts with the back-story of it and my heart, even though we are talking high school level back story! Lovers circle is when you’ve been around a person so much and they are your everything just aren’t your EVERYTHING! This was hard for me to read because I can familiarize with the story a lot and plus the tug-and-pull in this…will play with your heartstrings.

Can’t really say too much because it will give it away but guys, this is such a sweet and loving story. A true boy meets girl in kindergarden and they fight for their life…together. The hard moments were intense and let me tell you Chloe Cat is not a cat at times, more like a Lion cat. I was super mad at Rip for the longest time but boy did he redeem himself, phew *SWOON CITY*

I don’t get to read sweet stories like this often but every time I do, it’s always a perfect fit of sweet and action from Kelly Elliott. I don’t know but her books are never the same and always something surprising. Be prepared for gushy on this one, lots of action, crying scenes and a beautiful HEA!

R E V I E W ➠ All Grown Up by Vi Keeland

July 2019 Review, MUST READS!


When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to. 

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties. 
But…he looked so familiar
As I got closer I realized why. 
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home. 
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man. 
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me. 
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

-Mark Twain

A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.

“You’re so incredibly beautiful, Valentina. I’ll remember this summer forever.”

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Definitely not my first read by the author, she is one of my very favorite top authors! I was a bit tiny bit skeptical about this one because it involves a younger hero than the heroine. So here we go….

Valentina well she is something else, her friend though Eve haha I really liked her a lot, along with Valentina, she isn’t the older heroine that is childish, it’s always refreshing to read that. Also could be the fact that that’s how Vi writes, not sure…I am very familiar with her writing style and this was a perfect fit for the heroine. Anyways, I kind of fell in love with both of them right from the start. Can’t say that about Ford.

Ugh, men are pigs in all senses, and who hires a french assistant anyway *rolling eyes* aside form being a “man” Ford is actually charming in a sexy broody type of way!
Match.com though, that was the kicker, I love the reason he messaged her or I think send her something showcasing he liked her profile. Because she looked like the woman who cared more about having the fun than hair and make-up. It was sweet! p.s. little secret she is 37 and he is 25! You’re welcome!!

So here they are spending a week…ONLINE?! Yes, online, chatting ONLY as per Valentina! Their meet hahaha was freaking priceless, my anticipation was of the roof and then their realization of one another *face palm* haha

From The Book:
Instead of responding, I went to my contacts and edited Donovan to Ford — a gentle reminder that Donovan wasn’t a man I could ever be attracted to; he was simply Ford, the boy next door

What do you do when you’re stuck with the ‘boy from next door’ in the same summer next door houses during the whole summer again? Well, that is the question 😉 Their first date was so sweet, Valentina was so nervous and Ford was the ever so YES 25 ONLY but god was he all man and just yummy.

What fun to read this, this is what I love about Vi’s books, her characters are so likable in all forms even reading a book where no matter the age they are just perfect. Ford will have you feeling alive again, feel passion, feel yourself…Ford is a DREAM BOOKBOFRIEND! The epilogue will have you crying, so much LOVED!!

R E V I E W ➠ Fallen Saint by Monica James

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!


Just as this nightmare began, I once again find myself bound, destination unknown. However, this time, my kidnapper is the man who shattered my world beyond repair.
Aleksei Popov—Russia’s number one mobster, and the man I was sold to.
His intentions for me are clear—submit, obey him, and call him master—but I won’t surrender. I’m not like the other girls. Whether that’s a blessing or curse, I’ve yet to decide. The problem is, my disobedience intrigues my captor all the more.
When we arrive in Russia, the rules change.
Saint, the man who was once a sinner, is my only salvation. What was forbidden now gives me hope that there is light in the darkness. He will risk everything to set me free.
But behind these opulent walls, things aren’t what they seem, and when the fine line between pleasure and pain begins to blur, only one thing matters—saving my soul.
I will lie.
I was once an angel, but now… I’m a fallen saint, ready to inflict my own pain and burn this hellhole to the ground.


A single word in a cursive font tattooed on my flank. Saint was a sinner, and now, thanks to his name, I’m a saint.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first review by the author. I also have read Book #1 from this, and let me tell you…I am not one for cliffhangers but I read the first book anyways, and I could not wait for this one!!!
I want to say that I fell in love with Willow in book 1 and here i am again, even more in love with her. Her characters, her actions…her feelings….give ME ALL THE FEELS! Book 1 was just preparing me for this one, I have been on the edge waiting for this and now I don’t know how to express my love for this book enough! It was everything I needed and wanted it to be! Monica James did not disappoint!
Now this is a little bit of a love triangle and yes I know I always say those are hard for me to read, but this isn’t in the sense of it but has the feel of it at times. I can’t explain it well enough but if I enjoyed it then you know. This DARK ROMANCE duo is everything, PREPARE yourself now that both are out, BING-READING time for sure!! The ending though…oh my heart *sigh* talk about having an emotional meltdown and reading faster on the edge to find out what will happen….don’t want to spoil it but PRE-PARE! Nothing is as it seems!

Denver’s hottest CEO is about to meet his match.

Billionaire workaholic Jasper Bergen calls the shots—and that’s just the way he likes it. Period.

As CEO of Bergen Enterprises, he’s dedicated his life to keeping his family’s mountain sports empire profitable. But sales have plateaued, and the company needs a jumpstart.

Enter Elle Reynolds.

She’s a bestselling travel writer whose celebrity adventurer status makes her the perfect choice to boost the company’s public image.

The perfect choice to everyone but Jasper.

Hired by the company’s founders, he has no choice but to work with the free-spirited author.

And while they clash at every turn, Elle can’t quit. Her accountant has swindled her out of millions, and she needs this job to get back on her feet.

But Jasper and Elle may have more in common than they think.

Thanks to their busy schedules, neither’s dated in ages.

Each is experiencing a sexual famine that can only be remedied by a feast— a MAN FEAST.

When they agree to a no-strings night of passion, their sexual chemistry is off the charts.

And these two opposites soon realize there’s a fine line between love and hate.

Artists should pain this man. Sculptors should carve him out of marble. No longer clean shaven, Jasper Bergen with a little stubble was the definition of sexy on a stick. -Elle

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first read, I’ve had the honor of reading every single book this author has put out, well form the beginning, all 5 from the first series Langley Park and now this new series. That means I have already read Book #1, and will say that Krista has been one of my very firsts when I started bookstagramming, I enjoy her books so much I can’t wait for more!

Right off the bet, the book dives in. Where Elle is sitting in front of a high-priced attorney…not for the reason you may think. Her A-hole of a assistant did unspeakable things where Elle is not left with nothing to her name except what was paid up-front and is actually to her name. That doesn’t leave her much, so the deal she has with Bergen Enterprises she really can not miss out on that. It will help her, her mother and of course get her back on her feet.

Jasper Bergan, what do I say about this broody hunk of sexiness! Well that, and he is very responsible and hahaha Elle throws him off kilter. It’s the best thing ever! A big man like him, finally meeting his match in a lot of ways. Even though at the beginning he does a fantastic job of denying and putting his feeling or anything regarding Elle off.

The adventurous, the places, Krista is very good with details not too much and just enough to suck you right in a story. Her characters are always very well written, I think I enjoyed both of them in here. I always love me some broody sexy CEO man, duhh! Am i right?! Finally the stuffy suit wearing man let’s the carefree author show him what it feels to be carefree. Even their love making is unique, sexy yes but unique. He calls her by her full name and middle name which is so adorable and so Jasper. They are ALSO SWEET TOGETHER, he can really SWOON anyone, even if he is a stuffy-suit-wearing man. Their opposite attracts is magical! I think i really fell in love with that, not to mention the fact that they happen to have something so in common….*SIGH* no spoilers don’t worry!!

I really love these two together, something different and yet even the different sometimes the soul isn’t so much. If you want some fun, adventure, sexy and ALL THE FEELINGS, this is for you!!

R E V I E W ➠ Resist by K. Bromberg

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!, TOP 2019 MUST READ


Who says you have to play by the rules to get what you want?

Agreeing to meet Ryker Lockhart is my first mistake. Rich, handsome, and more than intriguing, he thinks blackmail will bend me to his will.

But he’s wrong.

I may have done a few things that weren’t exactly legal, but I have my own reasons for that. The last thing I’m going to do is let some high-powered divorce attorney come into my life, have my body, and rule my heart. Not to mention ruin everything that I have carefully built in just a short amount of time.

But as much as I try to resist him, and against my better judgment, there is something about him that has me agreeing to his proposal.

I’m putting everything on the line for him. I just hope I won’t lose everything when this is all over.

Release Date: July 30, 2019
ARC provided by: NetGallery / SocialButterfly PR

She tastes like wine and resistance. A resistance not to the kiss but to me, and fuck if it doesn’t turn me on more.

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

First off, K. Bromberg is a huge favorite author of mine. Been reading her books and actually have read every single one, so far.

Vaughn is a BADASS woman!! From the very first pages, you’ll see why. I instantly fell in love with her character. After taking care of a little problem, Vaughn finds herself in the company of the handsome Ryker Lockhart.

Interesting choice of career for Vee (can’t say, I don’t do spoilers) but a brave one at that. But Vee has a goal, a plan…soon she will be able to hop that fence over to the green side.

Vaughn is a woman who wants to do the right thing, knows how to hustle to get though life but is still a woman… with feelings even if she hides behind that facade. Her childhood was beautiful, until she lost her mother, it all spiraled from there with well i can’t say but a lot. Be prepared to be surprised by Vaughn on every turn.

Now Ryker, is a peculiar creature. A successful high rise divorce attorney that not only has the money but power. Big names, big clients and always men only clients. His issues run deep and something that may not have been as dramatically as Vee’s but not less influential. I have to say that he is the ultimate-bookhusband because your pants will be swooned off. As arrogant and blunt he is, he is still alpha, in control yet reasons with Vaughn over the power.

Power struggle? Absolutely! But when Vaughn let’s her guard down even for a second, gosh it is beautiful. Secret’s are revealed, a sweet moment of unicorn scenes (will melt your heart) and danger. If you’ve read Bromberg before you know her style, so this is exactly what I would want from one of her books & more. I can’t really say much to be honest, it would be a huge shame to spoiler alert this because it’s worth a full focus read!! You’ll be hooked, I couldn’t stop and kept reading faster then slowing down because I didn’t want it to end. The ending, I kind of want to say I was expecting it but I did not expect how it happened. Shame on your Ryker!! I’m going to say this once and then deny it if anyone else asks me again but….I think i loved this book even more than DRIVEN *goes to hide under desk so lightning doesn’t strike me* phew, nothing yet! That said, this is huge and I am very much looking forward to BOOK #2!

p.s. Now, don’t get me wrong I know there were cover reveals of TWO books (hell I even took a photo just for it) but my stupid-head didn’t comprehend until i realized this is a CLIFFHANGER! *sigh*

R E V I E W ➠ It’s Not Over by Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!


Lately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man I’ve ever loved. 

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.


Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me. She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized that I would do anything to change the past. I have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that it’s not over.

“You kept my name,” I whisper, leaning in a little closer.
“Yeah, I just–”
She looks down for three heartbeats. I know because I counted them before she gives me her sad eyes. “I wanted to keep a piece of you, and piece of us.”

“You’re not exactly a big fan of bookstores.”
I shrug. “I’m a Winnie fan. Besides, I need a book myself.”

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first read by either author, I am familiar with their writing styles. That said, let’s jump right in because not only is the cover GORGEOUS but this story is a bit different than your usual!

Not your usual because it kind of starts from the end. When that paper is signed separating Gwendolyn and Harrison not just with each other but in the eyes of the law and god…that’s that. The end…GAH my heart guys, this was hard to read because it’s so realistic. This book is the highlight of SECOND-CHANCE romances for so many reasons!

Even though his best friend Chase is an asshole, the man has a point, either move on or fight for her! Makes sense right, well in this case when you set your mind to something especially Harris…what will he do when a wrench is thrown in the situation. What follows in events of life, anger, passion, secrets, lies and love…in all the messed up ways, still love. You wait, you will be IN LOVE with the hero Harrison, his swooning is on another level!

I don’t want to give out to much but will say that it was a one sitting read for me and it was beautiful but also hard to read, again, something about it that grips you and keep you hanging until you jump or sink! I think I was little frustrated by Gwendolyn because of her reasoning, but then again I also understood it in a little form. It was a fight for me in this book, as far as the plot and story go that was very smooth and also the transitions. Very well written and I enjoyed it, I hope Chase is next!k p.s. GINA is a bitch!

R E V I E W ➠ Total Surrender by Erika Wilde

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!, TOP 2019 MUST READ

Contemporary fairy tales with a dirty, sexy twist!
How far would you go to make the man that destroyed your family pay?

Maddux Wilder is a man consumed, a beast in a three-piece suit. Rich and powerful, he built his empire with one thought in mind: revenge.

After years of patience and planning, the wait is finally over. Tonight, Maddux will finally watch Theodore Cole’s kingdom crumble. At a lavish ball in the New York City castle the Wilder siblings call home, the man that killed their parents will atone for his sins. 

If only he’d planned for her. 

Arabella Cole is Theodore’s only child; his cherished and sheltered daughter. She’s an innocent, captivating beauty that would do anything to save her loving father, including sacrificing herself. 

With her freedom gone, she must surrender to a man she hates. A man that makes her want things she shouldn’t. A man that awakens deep, forbidden desires. 

But everyone knows that roses don’t bloom in darkness. 

Enter Maddux Wilder, a man that doesn’t believe in fairy tales. 

Can the beauty tame the beast or will revenge cost them both everything that matters most?

“He’s right, Bella. ‘m vindictive, merciless. And fucking ruthless.”

“Or maybe you’d like to sass me one more time and find out what I’d like to do to that warm, lush mouth to remind you who is in charge here?”

⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by the author, am very familiar with the style and absolutely enjoyed each book I’ve read from the author.

This book starts off strong and with insta action. Maddux Wilder Meets Arabella at a formal outing, where he proceeds to not be able to stay away from her. So they dance…I really love when a hero swoons in an alpha way, even form the beginning Maddux does that. Only for it to end with the village idiot interrupting! The trick is that Maddux is out for revenge, while Arabella is trying to still find herself in the whole ‘the mess my father has made my whole life.

Arabella is a brave one because she make a deal…THE DEAL…basically a deal with the devil himself. All to try and save her father, she was so brave. Just when Maddux thinks he got himself a sheep…she shows her real stripes and is strong, sassy and again very brave for someone in her statue. This book will have you sizzling, Maddux is not only ruthless and alpha but he enjoys outing punishments as well as pleasure if you know what I mean *smirk* that said, the sex scenes are off the charts hot! You know in some sense you will swoon in the too, it;s the best of both world with this hero!

But Maddux is out for retribution not playing house or having ‘feelings’. When you find out the why, you’ll understand that that man who is now ruthless, has no other way TO feel. It’s a beautiful story of revenge, danger, passion and love. This is the kind of book that I LOVE TO READ! Also why I love the authors books.

What happens when one innocence learns the real filthy and dirty? EXPLOSIVE ENDING is all I can say, be ready…it’s like being on the edge of a cliff and that feeling of almost falling…fan-freaking-tastic, a rush!! So many emotions from both characters, the truth did not set anyone free in this one but just made more realization.

After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she’s not a happily-ever-after kind of girl.

Josiah isn’t looking for love…but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She’s got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie’s family, he can’t leave her unprotected—especially when he realizes he’s fallen hard for her.
As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real…but can they stay alive long enough to share it?


If I were the sort of guy eager and capable of hanging on to a woman forever, he’s choose one like Magnolia. She was sweet enough to lure him, yielding enough to submit to him, uninhibited enough to scream for him, and sassy enough to keep him guessing.

This author is one of my very first reads, actually I believe my third author ever. So therefore I have read her books before and am very familiar with the author’s writing style!

If you’ve read and are familiar with Shaylas’ writing style you’ll understand when I say this is such a Shayla Black book! The hero is mega alpha, (bdsm related) Dom, super sexy and brave of course! The heroine is beautiful, smart and strong with a hint of damsel in distress. My favorite kinds! That said, this book was a little of everything, and all i enjoyed!

Maggie meets Josiah at her sisters wedding. He was there to protect and she was there, well because her sister was getting married! They spend a sinful and amazing night together, only to think they will part the next day. Come to find out , they will be spending a lot more time together than anticipated. Josiah is guarding her while guarding his own heart!

Maggie is in a lot more danger than Josiah imagined. When he stays to guard her and find out what is happening in town, when he does find out, it’s a lot more threatening. When the danger gets closer, do does Josiah and Maggie. It’s kind of really beautiful, the way they are with each other. This is BDSM based and I LOVED EVERY PAGE OF IT! Shayla Black really writes that genre amazingly! So believe that the scenes are sizzling!

From The Book:
Baby, I took one look at you and was determined to have you whenever and however I could. Come here.

The characters are so intertwined, the plot fits well and everything is in order as far as reading goes. I did read this in one sitting because well, I just love her writing style and it captivated me and kept going. There wasn’t even a point where it was slightly slow! I will say that I did not expect the outcome, the ending and all. It has me on the edge reading faster to see what will happen, will it? hehe Like i said a reason why I liked this book so much, it’s got danger, mystery lots of actions and the romance since is swoon + kinky sex…so just saying!!
